I have read this fic so many times now. No matter how many times, though, it never fails to make me feel achingly sad. I just want to lean through my screen and give Arthur a big hug. It is just so touching, without melodrama or insensitivity.

What I also love about this fic is that it’s about characters we rarely see at the forefront of fanfiction, and elderly too! The closest we see to an elderly character in fanfiction is usually Dumbledore, so I just love that it’s about Arthur and Molly, and about something that is sad and momentous, yet at the same time profoundly beautiful. Obviously I have no idea what it is like to live with a spouse for decades and then lose them, but this fic felt so heartfelt and true to their relationship. Saying it’s poignant feels like an understatement.

Arthur is in this sort of aware denial, and I think it’s such a moving image. This fic is really evocative. I felt like I could see and feel everything.

I love this fic even though it makes me want to sit on my bed while a lone tear trickles down my nose.

:( - so sad. What a beautifully written story. You've captured so much in very few words of their life together and the great love they shared, not only together, but with all their children.

Well done. ~Carole~

Author's Response: Thank you for the review! They really did live in a huge bubble of love when they weren't fighting various wars.

Crying my eyes out and I promise to come back and review this properly when I've recovered, but for now let me say that you captured his grief painfully well.


Author's Response: Thanks for this review and sorry for making you cry. I hoped you enjoyed it anyway :)
