This is a very beautiful story. Great writing! The way you made if flow so seamlessly... teach me!!
Author's Response: Thank you for the review! I think review notifications must be going into my spam folder (need to fix that!), because I didn't find this until almost a year later! I did like this story - it is the only one ever that sprang into my mind fully formed.
I love your writing style, it is almost graceful, like reading an ice skater...if that makes any sense at all.
Your story is very, very good. It is something I can personally see happening, and I like the internal monologue Teddy has. It makes you think.
Author's Response: Its been a long time since I have gotten any reviews, because it has been a long time since I have posted any stories. I was so glad to see yours. Thank you for the kind words on my style; I read my stories aloud when I write, to listen for the rhythm of the words so the ice skater analogy makes perfect sense to me. I do have some drabbles on the beta boards and the memorial finds its way into many of them. If you are interested, I am indigo_mouse on the beta boards as well.
I love Teddy, and I really like how much you put into his character in this story. A lot of authors either make him exactly like his parents or exactly like Harry, and I don't think that's true at all. I love the reflections in the story. Good work. Me gusta :)
Author's Response: Thank you! This is one of my favorite stories to write.
omg i love it
Author's Response: Thanks!
I agree that he doesn't have to be in the same house as either of his parents, but when you do make it different I would like to see the qualites of that house in him (although it is difficult to show in a one shot)
Author's Response: Or I can just remove the detail of what house he is in out altogether, since it really doesn't play into the story.
I like this look at Teddy. The memorial to all who died is likely, and somewhere that he would feel close to his parents.
I would like if you showed us more of his personality. As much as I enjoyed this fic I would like if you showed us the qualites of his house, and traits that hinted at his animaugs form, rather than telling us what house he is in and what his animagus form is (although I can see, from his parents and the little we hear of him in the books why this might be).
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I like the idea of making his animal form less explicit - hinting at it more. The house he is in is actually completely unimportant to the story - except that it is in a tower, and that only leaves Ravenclaw and Griffindor. I like the idea that he is different from his father in what house he was in a least, and that is why he is in Ravenclaw.
I might come back to hims someday. But in my head he is a well adjusted individual, and, well, not as interesting to write about, eh?
