Ahaiodjoajifdoahohdiahfod. Okay, this was so perfect.

I can definately count the number of fanfiction stories I've read where Dumbledore is characterised perfectly, but I may have to count this one several times over because it was truly stunning. Especially when he spoke, then he was just so. Dumbledore that this has officially become a canon thing.

Minerva, too, was just so truly and utterly perfect. I loved the back story you gave her, I loved her interactions with Dumbledore and I love her emotions and her real-ness. She was wholly and utterly perfect.

I loved the little snippets and it makes me want to copy and paste them all on to word and then read them in chronological order and then read them backwards and all sorts of things.

Truly, this was wonderful. I loved it :)

Author's Response: Perfect?! O_O Wow! Thank you very much! To hear this praise from you means a lot - it's an amazing ego boost.

Dumbledore is a strange character to write, but I found here that writing him through Minerva's eyes simplified the characterization - not by taking away depth, but because she knows him so well and isn't (as) mystified or in awe of him like Harry was. :D

As for Minerva, I can't take credit for the details, which are all from JKR's additional Pottermore material - I just expanded upon them. I've written another backstory for Minerva (which is my headcanon), but I really wanted to see what I could do with JKR's story of her life. If you want to find it, the HP Wiki has an abbreviated version. It tears at the heartstrings to read the details.

Thank you very much for reading and reviewing this story! I'm really glad to hear that you loved it. ^_^
