Hi again, Amy!

This was an amazing story. I really, really loved this one-shot. It was just so powerful and had so much of an impact and I don't know why I haven't read more of your stories before. I hope you're still writing, because this was fantastic!

I liked the fact that you never named the character in this story. It could really be anyone of the people we know from canon, or a completely different person - I think that illustrates really well the fact that everyone suffered during the war and there wasn't anyone who came out of it unscarred. There were effects that continued a lot longer than the war, much later than the death of Lord Voldemort, and it's important to show that, which is what you managed to do in this piece. I find that really powerful!

Amy! I loved your story so much because wow did it show all of what war does with you. War always gets romanticized in stories and here it was ugly for everyone involved. I really felt pain and anguish when everything was unfolding because it was so visceral and real. War stories usually include a bit of gloating and glory, but here I could see how much pain war causes for everyone involved.

Everything in your story really flowed with such simplicity, yet I could still see how it all fell into place beautifully. Although it was short, it felt complete and whole. I didn't catch any grammatical errors or other slips.

I feel like my favorite part was when you described how how your character got on with everyday chores and such. While earlier you described big constructs like pain and loss, you ended on what are usually menial chores which were really so meaningful. Silence also played a big part in closing your story, which I really liked. I can't come up with any real con crit, and I'll go find Mike's podcast of your story now because I'm so excited for how it will be!

Wow, what an incredibly powerful story. I just listened to Mike's narration of this, and it was splendid, and I loved the one-shot, so I just had to come and review it.

I love these kind of sad stories so it was definitely a treat for me. And of course it wasn't too sad, no story can ever be 'too sad' for me xP

I loved your idea - you truly reflected the horrors and pain of the war. It's true, everyone loses something/someone in the war, the experience can never truly go away, and you showed all that brilliantly in just a few words. *hats off*

The despair and pain was palpable throughout and the ending was just amazing as well. I liked the whole concept of the 'silence'. Really, you're a very talented writer and I am so glad I know you!

Great job Amy!

Lots of love,
