Simplicity is perfection.

This is a wonderful one-shot! I can't think of a single thing that I don't love about it! Its simplicity, the flower imagery, the vivid images you paint with your words, the metaphors, the fact that it's about Lavender...!

Post-war Lavender is a little obsession of mine (I went as far as to write a short story on her) and I must say that you conveyed the change in her beautifully. She has gone a long way and has done a lot of growing up and now she is a sensible, thoughtful young woman.
Lavender/Pansy is probably the strangest pairing I've ever seen on this site, but you made it seem very natural without having to say much about it.

I really liked the way that you ended it, with the relationship ending without Lavender finding out why Pansy never showed up, but being content in herself and her life all the same. I loved it, because really, that's how life is.

There's a delicacy about your writing that gives the story a feeling of lightness and sophistication and makes it an absolute pleasure to read. If this isn't what you normally write, I strongly suggest that you explore this "path", because this is just too good!

Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much for this wonderful review.

I can't say I liked Lavender too much in the books, and I've never payed too much attention to her after the books, but this plot bunny just bounded into my head one day, and I thought it would be interesting to try it. Character development was a huge part of this story, and I'm really glad you think that I managed to convey it through Lavender.

Lavender/Pansy is very strange and I don't think I've ever seen it before on this site, and I wanted to make it unique but at the same time not make too much of a big deal of it, if that makes sense? I was worried about the ending a bit, because I didn't want people to be too disappointed that they didn't stay together.

I'm so glad you liked this story and the style of writing, thank you so much for reading this story and leaving an absolutely amazing review! :D
