I really really like this story. I've read so many Dragon stuff and this was a break, a good break. There were some small mistakes which can be overlooked :) I love this story. Well done :)

I... dont think I can review this story fairly right now but I think you've done a very good job.
It is beyond difficult for me to read being pregnant myself right now but I think you have a lot of raw emotion in there which very easily and very quickly moved me to tears. Well done on thisAuthor's Response: Hi there!
Though inspired by a true story, it's not something I've ever had to face, something I'm thankful for! Thank you for the kind review, even if it was hard to read! (I didn't intend for that, but that is why I knew I definitely couldn't leave out the sensitive theme/topic warning out!)
Congrats on your family, though! :)

Hello, fellow Gryffindor!
Oh my, this was so sad. :( I feel so depressed now after reading this. I felt so bad for Hannah, and even worse for Neville, since he had to put on a brave face for the world. Hannah succumbed to the darkness and therefore he had to be the one to step up, to try to move on. There's all different kinds of bravery, and the kind usually associated with Gryffindor is the in-your-face-with-a-sword kind of bravery, like Neville with Nagini, but Neville was so brave in this story, too. He was brave enough to grieve silently for the sake of his wife, for going back out into the world instead of shutting down, and for imagining a different future with his wife and their krup. Acceptance of reality is definitely bravery.Author's Response: Hey Sarah!
Thanks for the review! The story was actually inspired by true events in my life, well, not my own, but in a family I've known for years, so it was definitely something that hit home when I wrote it. I almost imagine Neville that way, I imagine that he has different types of bravery within him. The silent bravery like he had in this story, but also the bravery he showed in DH. I like exploring different sides to different characters! :) I was also hard-pressed to wrap this story up, kind of give it a happy ending but not make it too rushed, so I was worried about that! The challenge for Task One kind of made me wrap things suddenly I thought but maybe sometime after the competition ends I can tweak it a little. :) Thanks again for the review Sarah!
