Review #1, by luvinpadfoot Safe and Sound

17th May 2012:
This is a really interesting take on Sirius's Uncle Alphard. I don't know if I've ever seen a story solely about him before.

The ending was so sad! Calista dying with her mother was just one of the most depressing things I've read in a while. A part of me was hoping that Amelia would get away, but it almost seemed to work better that she stayed and died with her youngest child. And the two sons were murdered earlier, I suppose?

I loved the way you worked the lyrics to the song into the last few lines. It flowed really well. Oftentimes when lyrics are changed into dialogue it can sound forced, but it just sounds beautiful here.

It was so sad, but a great story nonetheless. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Author's Response: Thank you for such a great review!

At first I was going to have Amelia get away, but than I wanted her to have a sort of Lily-esque redeeming factor for her in the end.

I actually have no idea how I made up this depressing and story. I'm glad that you enjoyed it though!!
