Review #1, by Maelody Time

12th January 2015:
What made me love this story the most out of the others, or should I say what made me choose this story over the others, is that it was the first to bring awareness to the story, yes, but it actually solved it and then continued to fix the problem as well. I think that having Dennis open up free hospice was one of the greatest ideas, and it made me so happy to see that you went as far as resolving the issue further.

This story really caught my eye, and I fell in love with it fairly easily. I think there's a lot of emotion between two grown men when one is dying. Even though Dennis was Chris' son, he was still a man. It was hard on both of them, though. And to see this story progress made me happy, and broke my heart in the appropriate places.

Congrats on a first place will earned! I loved this story very much, and thank you very much for bringing awareness to Marie Curie Cancer Care!

I love that in bringing awareness to this event, you bring in someone who is willing to help. I think that is important because not everyone sees the chance or opportunity there is to ask for help, even from complete strangers. Also, Andrew is a really nice character in general. ;)

I like how deep this story gets, too. It covers ways to reach out for help, receiving help, and even coming to terms with what is wrong. There is no going around it. You bring that to light and that's what made me appreciate this story the most.

Sorry it took so long to get to the reviewing of the actual stories here! I'm reviewing all the submitted chapters/stories to the challenge and then I'll get to your requested reviews soon! I promise! :)

Anyway, I think you already know that I love your story! I love simple things in life, and this story is as simple as it gets when it comes to living life, and dying. I think that's what makes this whole thing beautiful as a whole! There's so many little things and so much to find the beauty in ordinary things.

I think my heart was a little crushed when Healer Chang said she couldn't, and wouldn't help his father because it's out of her power to do so. But it also makes sense. It just sucks that she has to be seen as the bad guy in all of this when it's obvious something is going on in her life as well.

Hello, Leonore. I'm reviewing your entry for my challenge. I'll only be reviewing the first chapter, but so far I really, really like this story. You show a lot of promise as a writer, (I've read some of your other works as well), and I like that you chose Dennis Creevey to write about. I've not read many... well, any, fics with him as a main character or even a secondary character. I think you did an excellent job characterizing him, and his father as well. I look forward to the other chapters.
Thanks again for the challenge entry. May 31st is the deadline, so you'll find out the results then! :)

Author's Response: Thanks! It was a great challenge. I like writing about minor characters, and Dennis is an interesting one.

Hi! I'm here from the Blue v. Bronze battle.

First off, I've never actually read a story about the Creevys... is that sad? I'm glad this is my first one. I love how little things of the past are mentioned like how Dennis and his brother and dad planted flowers in his mother's grave, and how Dennis used to love playing doctor as a kid. The memories are a nice touch. His relationship with his dad is really genuine. They only have each other and they are so strong about it.

I love his dad... after the death of his wife and son, he didn't just give up on life but kept continuing it. I admire that.

The end of this chapter is so sad: "I told him magic could heal him. Now I have to watch him die? " This is going to be so hard for him and if I were him I would have said the same thing. And mentioning the saying good-bye thing was so awww.

Overall, great first chapter! I love the little details like how he works a night shift and the addition of Cho Chang. I'm really glad I had the pleasure of reading this!

Author's Response: Hi!

I actually put the final chapter of this into the queue today, so it's at the top of my mind.

I decide on stories in two ways. Sometimes I start with the character and choose the plot. Sometimes I have the plot and choose a character to fit. This was the second kind - I wanted a hogwarts-era or later muggleborn. And once again, Mrs Rowling has created someone who fits my plot perfectly!

I don't think there are many stories about the Creevys - especially not Dennis. I don't remember seeing any, anyway.

So glad you liked it! Little details are a 'Claw thing, I think (although other people like them too, it's our kind of research and thinking through everything). And you spotted Cho's (kind of obvious) cameo!

Thank you!
