I am totally.....I don't even know if there is a word for it....ha. This story was amazing. No, amazing doesn't even do it justice. I know that feeling and I have an idea that you do too. You describe it so well. I believe that I feel things very strongly but never quite know how to put it into words. You did it beautifully. i'm envious. No rating neccessary, nor appropriate.

Soo lovely and warm and beautiful. It was very sad, and I liked that you didn't shy away from looking at how many painful deaths there could be in the final battle, like most of us do. It was most definetly a job well done, and I really liked how you had the deaths from the past mixed in with the present. Just one thing though, I wasnt too clear on whether or not Hogwarts was still being used as a school. Great work! 10/10

This would be the first time Vader has ever personally read any thing of yours, Seren, despite the fact that he has heard from numerous people your writing is very good. The first impression he is left with is a very gloomy one. So many people have died in this vision of a post Voldemort Hogwarts. He was somewhat reminded of (though he doubts you intended it this way) the older Private Ryan collapsing on the grave of Captain Miller years later, remembering all those who sacrificed their lives for him. Your story takes a grim (and probably more realistic) look at the horrors of war (magical or otherwise) than you tend to get in Harry Potter related works.

He liked seeing a perspective on the final battle that did not belong to Harry, something he hasnít seen too much of in various visits to MNFF. Your portrayal of Hermione was very well done and he especially liked the way you blended in her recollections of the last battle. Yes, there were perhaps some graphic images mixed in, but it was not as though they did not add impact; it wasnít like those images were the story. Vader felt like the really helped drive home how emotionally damaging living through such events can be. In particular, the memories of Luna and Neville were very good.

The whole idea of being robbed of a childhood was also pretty powerful. The scene at the end where Hermione takes off running in the fields was a nice close. But, even that part made Vader sad. Not sure why, he thinks you meant it more as sort of an uplifting finish. Like a moment in Hermioneís life where she is finally able to let go some of these things haunting her.

Well, thatís about all Vader can think of to say here. He didnít set out to read your story when he bounced on to the site today, but is certainly glad he did. Now he understands where all he has heard about your writing comes from. Fantastic job, Seren, truly. Whether or not he has interpreted your story exactly as you intended or not, he thinks it is an extremely good piece of writing.

Simply beautiful. Beautiful idea, beautifully written, beautiful images, beautiful tears I cried as I read. I give this story a 10, and it was well-deserved. Thank you for reminding me that no matter who dies, no matter the cost, the war will be finished and there will be hope for the future.

*Cries* that was beautiful, I love it. The sprits of Luna, Neville, and Ginny run with Harry, Ron, and Hermione at the end, I could imagine it like I was there. A 10, you earned it!!

Very good story. There are way too many deaths though.
