Review #1, by heartjily4ever A way to remember

21st July 2013:
Hey, sorry for the wait for the review, (This is PrimeSuspectsAreNargles by the way). Thankyou for entering my challenge. I think this is such a cute story, really. It's such a unique idea, and I almost cried when Teddy thought he had done something wrong. It was really well written, and you incorporated that quote in really well, as it isn't the easiest to use. I will be making a blog entry with the results of the challenge soon, so check that out for your place.

Author's Response: Hey, no problem! I'm glad you liked it, and that you thought the quote was placed well, I wasn't sure if it was too, non-central.

Thanks for the challenge, and the review! :)

Review #2, by Remus A way to remember

17th July 2013:
Heya! :D

So I'm doing my review rounds and this one struck my interest.

You did a fantastic job at capturing a young child. They way he acted, his questions he asked Harry that only hurt my poor little heart. This story is short and bittersweet. I'm glad that Harry didn't just outright lied to him. Just sort of omitted the truth from him. There's no way a child that young would understand death.

I think the line that got me was "Did they not want to be with me?"--If I had been in Harry's place being asked that, I think I would've lost it and cried in a corner.

Speaking of Harry, I think he did a fantastic job at handling that conversation. He was well aware that Teddy was too young to understand the meaning of Remus's and Tonks's sacrifice. I think he ended up saying the right thing in the end. Sort of nerve wrecking position though.

I did notice some minor things though.

You state in the first paragraph "How could he explain to a seven year old that" and then later he had only just turned five and Harry couldn't bear..." --so is Teddy 5 or 7?

"hat wasn't going to happen as the boy's face dropped and he looked to the floor."--think you meant 'that'

Mad-eye moody"--Moody needs to be capitalized.

Overall this was a fantastic story! :D Thanks for the read!

Review #3, by LadyL8 A way to remember

14th July 2013:
Wow. I have such conflicting emotions when it comes to this one-shot. I'm happy because Harry shows him his family, and because Teddy is still alive. On the other hand, I'm sad that Teddy never got to know his parents, and I'm sad he had to see pictures to know his parents.

But anyway, this was really well-writte. I absolutely loved it. I love how Teddy keeps asking questions, like children often do when they are curious about something. That's very believable. And I love how Harry is so patient, and answers all his questions.

Both characters are very in-character, and they are realistic. They also have a good chemistry. Everything about the way they speak to each other says that it's an authority figure (but a good one, like a parent or godfather etc.) and a child. And that's really good.

I don't really know what to say. I loved it. And thank you for writing it.

Yours Sincerely
LadyL8

Review #4, by luvinpadfoot A way to remember

14th July 2013:
Aw this was so bittersweet! Teddy makes me want to cry with all his questions about his parents not wanting to stay around, I just wanted to give him a big hug, poor thing.

I thought Harry handled things really well, bringing out the shoe box and showing Teddy all of the old pictures. It was a wonderful moment and so well written too! Just a little snapshop of lives after the war, which I adore.

Such a great story! 10/10

And now I'm going to go wipe my eyes and pretend like I had no emotional response to that.

Author's Response: Aww, well I'm glad you though it was a good story! Yeah, I just wondered how Teddy found out about his parents and this happened.

Thank you for the review! :)
