It was just another Friday night on the town with mates for Terry Boot.
That was, of course, until he ended up guilt-ridden and saddled with a drunken and unconscious Theodore Nott. When his unwanted patient awakens, Terry finds himself questioning what he thinks he knows and finding the strangest of answers.
I am a long-time reader of Mugglenet fanfiction, but this is my first time commenting in any capacity. I have been genuinely enjoying your writing over the past month or so, but I have to say that you have made a huge mistake with this story- namely, that you seem to be creating such compelling characters with no intention of considering a continuation of this story. Please don't give up on Boot and Nott! It is a pairing that I would certainly never have come up with myself, but the characters are so not-fleshed-out in JKR's canon that I can't help but be curious as to what will happen next. Please, don't make this a one-shot! And many thanks to the birthday girl for inspiring this wonderful story.
Lol, wow. I never in my life expected to hear the phrase 'don't give up on Boot and Nott'. I'm not going to lie... this was just a random pairing that I came up with because the birthday girl loves slashy things involving minor characters. And me, personally, I really just love obscure characters (hence my gigantic Katie/Oliver romance) and knowing the stories behind them, the things that JKR would never bother thinking about. I'm really glad you appreciate it. :)
Thanks so much for reading and reviewing.
Summary: Albus believed in the greater good. Tom Riddle believed in the right to survive. Aberforth believed that he could save them both.
I've been really enjoying this story- I appreciate the more realistic portrayals of Albus, Aberforth, and Tom. I like how you make Albus more human than JKR does without completely villainizing him. I also like how you make Tom sympathetic without lionizing him. This is a nice, well-balanced story. Thanks for a great read!
