GAH. So heart-wrenching. I love the beautiful, poetic way you described the Longbottoms grasping at consciousness, trying so hard to hold onto the son they've never properly met, not as he is now. This line - and then he left and she could not remember him, only that she was missing something so, so important - ripped me apart. This is truly a fascinating exploration of Neville's complex, tragic relationship with his parents. Great job!

Heddy, this is such a lovely story! I'm so honored that my banner inspired you to write about this beautiful moment in the Longbottom family (': Your one-shot perfectly captured the tortured yet enduring love that Neville and his parents experience, and it was heartbreaking how they all must rely on some sort of count--Neville his mother's blonde hair, Frank the clock, Alice the gum wrappers. I gained a new appreciation of Neville from this story, so thank you for writing it--I certainly enjoyed it (:Author's Response: haha oh Steph, I totally forgot this was your hpff username and I was like WHO IS THIS PERSON CLAIMING STEPH'S BANNER, THIS IS NOT OKAY. And then I realized it was actually you xD Thank you so much though, I am so glad you liked this! You and your banners are going to make me a prolific hpff-er again, I can see it now...
