Review #1, by DracoFerret11 Today

7th July 2014:
Hello there! The House Cup is happening on the forums, and I decided to give some of your stories a read as part of the latest reviewing challenge. I remember LOVING "Above the Clouds" YEARS ago, so I figured I would read some of your other stories! :D So, let's go over things:

Lovely Line: Whenever there's a line in a story that really stands out to me, I like to mention it to the author. The one here is: "You live your life like you normally would and then - then you don't, then it's over. You're finished. You're done. You've lost. You've won." That was beautiful and poetic and perfect. Great job.

Plot: Oddly, I've read multiple George-finally-dying stories lately, but I really like this one in particular. The other stories don't much mention his old age, and I really love that you did. Seeing life through old eyes was fantastic. You did this story justice. Well done.

Characterization: I think you captured George perfectly. He's not bad or upset at his old age, just fed up with it. He's a little sassy and nostalgic, and really just fits with what we know of him from the books. You did a great job not overwhelming the reader with conflicting emotions.

Emotions: Speaking of emotions, I really liked that this wasn't horrifically sad. It was a little sad, yes, but it was more accepting of death than denying of it. It was more a "this is how it goes" story, and I liked that it didn't deny any of the realities of old age and death. You mentioned that his friends have died, and his body is giving out, and he misses the things he used to be able to do. Those details were really fantastic in a story like this.

Overall, I think you did a really spectacular job with this story. It was sweet and a bit sad, but the thing I loved most was how matter-of-fact it was. Really well done!
