Chapter: And So It Begins...

Whoa.
I'm speechless.
This was great. I've been looking for a fanfic that described this, I don't know why though.
You did amazing, you are a great writter. You portrayed Alice's and Frank's courage so beautifully. I was crying nearly at the end.
I loved it.
Good job.

Author's Response:

Hello IckleRonnieX,

Oh, I am really glad you liked it. It's the darkest fic I've ever written and I was a bit hesitant to tackle it (because of the depressing subject matter). HP characters don't really seem to talk much about Frank's and Alice's ordeal. And no wonder, I suppose. What they experienced is certainly not for the faint-hearted.

Still, it seems a pity that they're only depicted in the books as Neville's tragic parents - figures to pity - when they used to be held in such high regard by the Wizarding world. Perhaps they still are, but their triumphs now seem to have been over-shadowed by the fate that befell them, and now they're more famous for being Crucio-ed into insanity than the fact that they fought and defied the most feared Dark Lord (ever) three times (and survived every encounter). They were one of the most successful Auror teams of their generation, and I wanted to show how they may have earned that reputation.

And why Neville and his Gran are so proud of them.

Thanks very much for R & R-ing this fic. I was beginning to think nobody liked it and wondered where I might have stuffed up, but you've restored my faith in it!
