I’m utterly speechless. This story was very well written and really made me think. Wow.

I loved how you used your OC’s actions to tell a story. The way the reacted to the different things that happened really helped, rather than having them just use their words. That was very effective. :) Myles also reminded me a lot of Remus Lupin, in the way that he cared more about others than himself.

Also, where did you find the word “Guff”? It was quite creative. I think I’m going to use that, now!

I was a little confused at this part:
But now she had to raise a magical child, who she wouldn’t even know was magical until it was eleven, and she had nothing to her name but a few pounds.

How did Myles know that his child wouldn’t be a squib? Also, if his was in fact magical, wouldn’t he show his first signs around the age of 3? I could be completely wrong. That might be my foggy brain at the moment...

I have NO idea why, but I had a thought that in the end, Myles would become a Death Eater. But, you just went and threw a curve ball at me and had him die. That was a very touching sacrifice.

Overall, I liked this very much. Great job!

Author's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review! I actually found 'guff' when we were doing a lesson on slang in a Marauder Era class. I suppose the child could have been a squib, but being magical is a very dominant gene. Also, Hermione and Lily would have shown early signs of being magical, but I doubt thier parents would have known they were witches. Again, thank you for the wonderful review! I'm glad you liked it.

Awww, that was really good! It's nice to think that Dean's dad abandoned him for his own protection! Great job, and good luck writing more!
