Oh my goodness, Mazayzay! This just consumed me and had me totally captivated the whole time. I've seen the dynamic with again parents who face the all too familiar ways of death just like any other person, muggle or wizard, before, but you took things to a whole different level of haunting ... thereness? is that a word? And brilliant description that made me feel like I was sinking into the story, rather than casually falling in.

I think my favorite part of this was in how you really created the characters, particularly Rose, and didn't tell the story as much as have them live the story and gah this was gorgeous.

I also really liked how the quote was pulled in - the one you got is one of my favorites from tfios and I loved how it really fit here and gafjhs! Even with such graceful writing, nothing was romanticized heavily or dwarfed by the story being told and I loved the podcast version of this~

On the technical level, I didn't notice any spelling or grammar mistakes, so yippee! The whole thing felt continuous and flowing and beautiful and /600 hundred other words about how hauntingly gorgeous this was/ and I liked reading it!

Wow. This was amazing. I'm not sure how to review it. It really did touch me - I had goosebumps- and my most frightening nightmares are about forgetting who I am and what I'm doing somewhere.

This was such an original idea for a story, and you wrote it brilliantly. First there was the intrigue as the narrator wasn't mentioned, and then you built up a picture of Ron through memories, and then shattered it. It was heartbreaking to read. The foreshadowing and present bits in the piece were well placed for extra effect, and knowing that something bad was going to happen, but not know what- it was a really good hook to keep me reading.

I think your character of Rose is very well developed- I liked how we saw her as a child, even though Ron would forget her. Also, as you described the aging of Rose, it helped show her mature as a person and how she dealt with Ron's illness. I also really loved the canon bits we saw strewn in- the book of fairy tales, and the ford anglia for starters.

Overall, well done! I would say i really enjoyed it, but I'm not sure enjoyed is the right word. But brilliant!

I think you used John Green's quote very well. It was so sad to see Rose go through that.
When Rose said (thought) : "Forget, forgotten, forgot." the sentence that came after was in a weird and twisted way... poetic. It really had emotion in it, because at that point Rose was giving up.
Very well written :)

So so moving and touching - completely new and not what I was expecting at all. You build up the suspense very well - the tension just slowly creeps up on you - and I had to read it twice to let it sink in! When you started, you had a very good idea of keeping it brief and mysterious but still keeping the reader interested. I was gripped from start to finnish. I love how descriptive and intense this is, but not too sad. It's hard to explain!! Basically you balanced the thoughtfulness of the story with the sadness, and it's such a beautifully daunting piece!! Write more please, because this is fantastic!! :D
