I could tell you many many things I liked about the story, and the fact members of the Original order aren't honored enough in fanfiction, but this story reminds me of Atticus Finch's quote in To Kill a Mockingbird, "Courage is not a man with a gun in his hand. Courage is knowing you are licked before you begin but you see it through to the end anyway". I loved the back and forth between brothers ( reminded me of fred and george..), the bit about James and Lily, their debate about the spy ( god lord how Pettigrew got away with it by the impression that everyone thought he didn't have the guts to be one), and Molly being so numb by grief. They are all nice touches. :)
Woot! Harry Potter goes Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. 'Bout time!
Author's Response: Sorry it took me so long to respond to this review; the oversight wasn't intentional. Thanks for your praise! I reiterate, though, that Butch & Sundance snuck in there without my permission... ~Ken
I loved it. The dinamic between Gidean and Fabian was wonderful, and I loved the banter that went on even in the darkest of times for them.
I also loved the way they kept going through different ideas for plans, and how you actually suggested ideas, rather than stating that the characters were thinking of something.
A lovely story overall.
Author's Response: Thanks very much. I'm glad you liked it.
You know what I love best about this story? I love that reading the brothers together reminded me so much of Fred and George. Obviously their manner comes from their mother's side. :-)
This was very touching.
Author's Response: Thanks, Kim. I'm glad F&G reminded you of F&G. I tried not to force it. ~Ken
Fabulous ... poignant, as your stories always are. Thank you.
Author's Response: Thank you, Cathy. You're very kind.
Wonderful... simply wonderful.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you liked it.
wow. very powerful picture of heroism, and even that the those who are depicted as heroes doubt in themselves. And that grief can be all consuming. Very, very good.
Author's Response: Many thanks. I'm glad you liked it. ~Ken
