HEY LILY! I still need to finish 'Adventure' (I'm so sorry), but this sounds so lovely and the banner is beautiful that I knew I had to read it.

Oh that was so cute! I am kind of sad that it was so short, but I know that if it was any longer, it just wouldn't have felt right.

I love the fact that you use the third person narrator. If you used first person (Hermione), I dunno, maybe I'm being silly, but I don't think it would have sounded as good. Probably she would have over-thought things, there would be too much worrying and too much detail given, and the mystery of this piece is something that I just adore. And if you'd used Hugo as the first person narrator, all the deep meanings would be completely lost.

There is something about this piece - I can't quite put my finger on it - that makes it kind of timeless. Like this could happen every year of Hugo's life and I would completely believe it.

The descriptions, as ever, are gorgeous. You are able to describe one moment in time so poetically, so magically, that it just puts me to shame. I cannot begin to describe my envy and awe.

This is definitely becoming a favourite of mine. I truly cannot wait to read even more of yours.

Lots of love,
Hannah.

Author's Response: hdawg! hello, lovely!

This was a piece in which I tried very hard to focus on physical description, and I think it sort of ended up merging with the emotive description. So basically, what I'm saying is that this story is a blob.

I think it's so interesting that you find that this is timeless, because so much of the charge of this--the momentum of it, the force of it as a piece on my emotion as a writer--was derived from the actual time period it happened in. And I suppose it's true that this day does come around each year, but it's strange, the way a story can be totally tied up in time and, also, be outside of time at all.

Thank you so much for this review! It made my day to see some appreciation for this little quaint, desperate piece.
