Happy holidays! :)
Finally here to read this new chapter. And what chapter! Love, love everywhere! I needed all the fluffy romance after all the angst of the last... of the whole story, actually. :P
Only bit of CC (getting to it immediately, so I can just gush about everything else afterwards) is that the first part was a bit heavy to read, since it was mostly a list of events. But on the other hand, I understand that it was necessary, so don't think about it too much (I'm a perfectionist at times...) Btw, speaking of the first part, I appreciated that you included an explaination of Hermione's appointment (hope you didn't do it for me... :P)
Sounds like Kingley's funeral was really touching... I like that you included it, even if only briefly, and I think you wrote it really nicely.
"So, with that thought in the back of their minds, Teddy and Dominique’s wedding came on a warm, summer evening and went off without a hitch. In a loose, vintage wedding dress made of lace and satin, Dominique had walked down the aisle with lily petals beneath her feet, in her bouquet, and in her hair. Teddy had cried at the sight of her. A spot amongst the groomsmen had been left open in memory of Albus. James had nearly dropped the rings when handing them to Teddy. Lorcan had cracked a joke when the congregation was asked if there were any objections. And Harry had married them beneath the stars and intimate candlelight."
I loved this paragraph. Really, so sweet, such beautiful writing.
I think I teared up a little at the mentions of Albus' empty spot. It was so thoughtful of Teddy, but at the same time so sad... why did you have to kill Albus? No, I'm serious, why??? (anyway, it was really moving...)
Aww... James and Norah are so adorable! They are so perfect for each other and their whole exchange and the dancing was so sweet. I'm so glad James managed to be genuinely happy, if only for one night...
And Molly and Lorcan... how adorable are they? I think the best couples come from deep friendships turned into love. Well, it isn't a rule, but I like this sort of relationships a lot. And even if at first it felt confusing and awkward, I'm glad they talked it through and decided to give each other a chance!
To cut it short, I LOVED this chapter! It filled me with so much happiness!
Happy holidays again!
Author's Response: Ack! Chiara!! Thank you so much!! I really appreciate it. Yeah, I struggled with formatting and writing the opening of this chapter because I didn't think they were scenes I needed to include but also didn't feel as if I could just brush over them and therefore had to touch on somehow. So it was hard to cut it down. Thanks so much for your input on it!
And aww yay! I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the romance and the fluffiness. I really feel like fluff is not one of my strong suits, so I never feel very confident about them. So it means a lot to me to hear that!
Thank you again!! Next chapter is on its way! :)
