i think albus is my favourite of the potter-weasley clan
maybe because he is the deeper more sensitive child
and one that truely understands his inheritance
this was really good!
omg! I loved it. It was amazing
only one word for this story......WOW!!!!
Wow this was really awesome. It really wrapped up the end of DH really well and your writing didnt leave anything missing, and it didnt have to much info. I also liked that you did it in Albus' point of view because everyone has been favoring James lately.
Keep writing your awesome!!
I think you have done a great job with this one-shot. Little Albus seems like a great character that author's are able to build on and you've done excellent here.
At the beginning it almost feels like he is a little resentful that people look at him as being like his father, an image he feels he can't live up to. He struggles with it so eloquently in this fic, kind of an inner battle.
When Lily enters, she seems kind of like the voice of reason for Albus, giving him examples of just how much he truly is like his father. With that realization, he recognizes that it wasn't only Harry that was a hero during the war, but everyone who stood up for someone they loved.
Personally, I feel you have written a rather thought provoking piece here. Just to prove that, here is a little insight on it.
Though she isn't mentioned here, this fic makes me think of Narcissa, and how she didn't let Voldy know Harry was alive, even though it was in turn for information on Draco's well-being. So in turn, Narcissa, herself, is somewhat of a hero. Had she not made that silent deal with Harry, though for slightly selfish reasons, I don't think he would have made it out of the forest alive. In my eyes, this gives her a little piece of redemption - though not quite the hero role as with Harry and his generation.
Author's Response: Wow, thank you. You really understood what I was trying to do with this story. I love your tie to Narcissa. I hadn't thought about her at all in relation to this story, but it really is something to think about. Love in the books had, obviously, always been the major theme, but it's only now that I'm realizing how completely it drove every single character. It's amazing, really.
It is great! I liked it a lot!
*sniff* great story!!
i loved it.
I love your basis for this story--this is a perfectly reasonable problem for Al to have. I like the personalities you gave to Al and Lily, and I especially like that you linked the whole story back to Jo's theme of love and bravery. Well done, and many thanks!
Author's Response: Thanks!
You really are a fantastic writer! Great one-shot it was very well-written. You captured Al's emotions and actions perfectly. I thought he acted very like Harry when he was first introduced to the Wizarding World. Lily was a very caring little sister. A bit like Ginny, I thought. Did you make Lily like that because she also showed similarities to her mother during Deathly Hallows Epilogue? An overall excellent story. I can't wait for your next one.
When are you going to post the sequel to Fate's Toll? I loved that one too. Please post soon!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I hoped that Al came off like Harry--I thought the fact that he thinks he can never live up to Harry makes him exactly like Harry. I did try to make Lily a bit like Ginny, but with a little Harry mixed in. I'm still not sure I'm going to post the sequel to Fate's toll, but I'm still thinking about it. Thanks again!
That is really cool. I was just wondering, Harry's kids grew up in a word without danger. did they ever feel like they had something to live up to? And then I saw your story. Nice timing.
Author's Response: That is good timing. Now someone has to write a story about all the other kids.
Wow. Very powerful and expertly written. Going to favorites of course. =)
Author's Response: thanks!
I really enjoyed this story - especially how Albus is so like his father. The worrying that he would not live up to Harry's reputation is such a "Harry" thing.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I was trying to make Albus similar to Harry and I'm so happy someone noticed! My favorite part is when Al thinks that Harry was never scared. Worrying that he won't be like Harry just shows how much like Harry he is.
this is such a good story! i really love it
Author's Response: thanks!
