Your description here is absolutely gorgeous, I love how you've used color to unify the vision of Hermione's kitchen. The mother-child emotions here are so believable as well, how mothers conscientously fight against having a 'favorite' but that doesn't stop the feelings from surfacing. I adore the description of "pulling the air and fitting it on like a great cape" -- I don't know how you come up with these things but I so enjoy reading them when you do :) Bravo!

Author's Response: Color, oh, yes, color. That was the driving stylistic choice here, for sure! And I'm so glad that you appreciate it :) And obviously I am not a mother and I am ecstatic to hear that this isn't a total out-of-order portrait of a mother. All I know is that mothers are still as human as they ever were; and part of me was rebelling against the perfect mother stereotype. I believe Hermione would definitely be a wonderful mother, but I also think she'd be a bit partial to the surprising child, the miracle birth, rather than the little reincarnation of herself, which is really sad in a way because Rose probably only wants to please her mother by emulating her. Anyway.

I have often had the impression myself of fitting myself into a certain moment, thinking myself into it, or, putting it on like a blanket or cape ;) I'm not sure where they come from. There's probably a little factory in my head where small strange elves produce details for my stories ;)

Thanks so much for your review, Mary!! I respect your abilities as a writer and reader so it is absolutely brilliant to get your positive feedback.
