When this came up this time on the "Randomly Selected Stories" list, I grabbed it. I've read it a number of times, and it never fails to bring tears to my eyes. I've added it to my "Favorites" list. Well written, well paced, and not over the top - just right. Thank you sharing such quality of writing. This is definitely one of the best Neville fics around.
Oh my gosh... that was just beautiful. It seems you and I share a common element when writing Neville. I hopefully will have my stories up here soon. This story is so wonderful. You capture Neville's sadness, yet constant yearning for his parents, brilliantly. Your use of descriptions are fantastic. I love the descriptions of the blanket for Frank, and then the ones of the music box. I could see everything. I love Neville and I adore this story. Wonderful, brilliant, beautiful job!
Author's Response: Thank you so much. I'm happy that you enjoyed the piece. Neville is one of my favorite characters. :)
This is such a beautifully heart-rending story. It's clear from your fic that poor Neville devotedly loves his parents, despite never really knowing them, while Gran seems to have lost hope. Your writing shows his heart, and I hope Rowling finds a way for his parents to be healed. Thanks for posting!!
Author's Response: Thank you for reading and for letting me know that you liked the story. :)
What a wonderful and touching story. It is too easy to make Neville nothing more than the butt of others jokes, it was nice to read a story that portrays him in such a believable and human light. Thank you for sharing this very moving fic!
Author's Response: Thank you. I love Neville. I think he's a very special and courageous young man. :)
Oh, how very sweet and bittersweet. That sounds like precisely the sort of thing Neville would do.
Author's Response: Thank you. I tend to think that Neville has been very much affected by what happened to his parents, and I'm sure they're never far from his thoughts. I'm glad you liked it. :)
