Summary: Always he had been there. To cry, and to bear witness. He survived them all. Two centuries after the final battle, a solitary figure searches for solace in all that remains of his past; the shattered memories of yesteryears.
Oh, wow, this story was wonderful, I was nearly crying at the end. It's interesting that there are so many stories out there that deal with the main characters' emotions after the War, but very few even consider characters like Dobby, who will still be there after everyone else has passed on. Your story is a true gem and I was glad to read it because it really moved me. Thanks for a wonderful story.

*is feeling guilty for not reviewing when she said she would*
Okay, so sorry for never getting around to reviewing when I said I would. Don't kill me. But anyway, I finally read this chapter and was like, whoa. Poor Meccy. He really does have problems. Anyway, it was good, although I didn't like it as much as the others because not as much happened in it. However, it was good because it helps set up the plot and creates a better sense of what Mecardo is going through. Anyway, good story so far! Oh, and I think it would be amusing if Chione randomly appeared in the story somehow, even if she doesn't fit in the plotline.
Author's Response: I fited Chione in Chapter four! Thankyou!
Hmm, so I've seen the link for this for a while in your signature so I decided to finally read it, and I must say it's quite interesting. Poor Meccy though! Teehee, I'll be watching to see when you post the next chapter.

Author's Response: Thankyou Laura!
Summary: Fawkes reflects.
I really liked the way this flowed. It was interesting because even though one can find many stories on different characters' feelings on Dumbledore's death, there aren't many (or any) that deal with Fawkes. Very nice, I give it a ten.
Author's Response: I'm glad that you enjoyed it. Fawkes was such an interesting character to...work with (as it were). It wasn't hard to figure out the flow and the tone of what his POV would be and I couldn't help but give him a superiority complex. ;P
Summary: The night of Lily and James's death. As Lily watches the Dark Lord destroy everything in her life she has ever cared for, she realizes that she must explain to Harry why she can't be there for him forever, and make sure he knows that "Mummy loves you..."
What? No reviews? I must fix this!
Did you know that I used your excerpt from MMFF forums for my BA challenge banner? And then I found the whole thing, and I must say I like it very much. It was very sweet, and captured that part very nicely. Definitely a ten.
Author's Response: Aw, thank you! You used it for a banner? Crazy! Haha. I'm so glad someone reviewed, thank you so much. I'm really glad you liked it! (That's what I'm here for) :P
Summary: For Regulus, the renewal of the mind is the erasure of the memory of unsavoury things past.
And you aren't submitting it? *shivers* Very good bit of poetry, quite descriptive, and although there is quite a bit of detail in the piece, I like it that most of the detail is given through metaphor and simile. Even though the piece has some rather dark elements, it didn't really strike me as dark until after I read it. I also really liked your line : "The inevitable is shadowed in the dance of the stars." Very nice.
Summary: Remus awakes the morning after Halloween of '81 to find his world changed.
Wow. You know, there are just some stories that just hit you, that are the perfect mixture of beautiful and heartbreaking. I really like this story, and consider it one of your best.
Author's Response: Thank you. It\'s one of my personal favorites as well.
Summary: Slightly angsty, slightly twinge-of-sadness RemusxSirius. Post-PoA oneshot. Sirius remembers how things were and a flying motorbike is involved...
*squees* Yay for Death Cap and Sirius and Remus! Teehee, two of my favourite things in one fic! Anyway, I liked your story, and think you portrayed the difference in their relationship quite well. The only thing I don't like is that Remus hardly said anything, and it seemed a bit choppy at the end. Other than that, it was very nice.
Summary: One year ago, Harry had successfully slain Voldemort just before his 18th Birthday. The Dark Lord's remaining followers either gave themselves up, knowing that this time there would be no excuses, or else went into hiding. A small band of them who did escape into the shadows has now resurfaced and captured Harry and a few of his friends, trying one last time to find a way and revive their master. Yet one among their ranks hangs in limbo, unsure after the events of the past two years where his heart truely lies...
A/N: This is a one-shot short story. No other chapters are coming. PLEASE REVIEW!!!
Very interesting concept. I don't usually read post-Last Battle fics, but this one was rather interesting. I thought that your characterization of Draco was rather good, because even though he seemed a bit OOC, from what we've seen of him in HBP it's easy to see how he could have ended up like this. But you actually mentioned that Harry thought that something was off with Malfoy, so it's okay. There were a few things that bothered me however. You had a few misspelliings, like "Horcrux" spelled with an e, and you said "They were nearing coffin" when I'm assuming you meant to put a "the" in it. But you could get a beta off of the forum and they could help you fix those problems and also Brit-pick. Otherwise, a pretty good fic for your first one.
Author's Response: Whoops, I will go in and edit the spellings to make them correct. Thanks for pointing out to left out a word. I\'ve done that in several places in my fiction before but I thought I\'d caught most of them. I\'m glad that the only things that bothered you were technical and not story/characterization related. Means i\'ve done my job.
Author's Response: Haha... point in case about me leaving out words, I left out a few while talking about leaving words out! Silly me. the second sentence in the above response should read \"Thanks for pointing out to me that I left out a word.\"

I really love the way this story is going and am very glad to be able to read an update. This story is very refreshing because it provides a nice and slightly unusual change from all the run of the mill stories out there. This chapter was exceptionally good, and I'll be waiting anxiously for an update.
