Teddy Lupin's first year at Hogwarts. Canon-compliant.

The war is over, and all is well, they say, but the wounds remain unhealed. Bitterness divides the Houses of Hogwarts. Can the first children born since the war's end begin a new era, or will the enmities of their parents be their permanent legacy?

Hermione would be proud.  Teddy's conversation as Flitwick with the house-elves was brilliant.




Chapter 20: It's All Fun and Games Until Someone Gets Hurt

A poem about the Elves, perhaps written by Bilbo in Rivendell.

Lovely job, Gina.  You've captured such a vivid picture of the Elves leaving - and I don't just mean the physical leaving of a place.  The angst, the stress and the worry that accompany such a difficult time is present in every line.

 



Author's Response:

Thank you, Julie! I don't know if it's quite that good - like I said in my notes, I thought something about the Elves would be a bit more epic, but this seems more hobbit-ish. Thank you so much for looking at it beforehand, and for stopping to leave such a nice review! ~Gina :)




Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Edward is well aware of the difficulty in keeping Bella safe. After much consideration, he makes a decision that changes both of their lives tremendously.

It's nice to see what's going on inside Edward's head.  We saw the whole departure from Bella's perspective, but we didn't get much about what his thought process was.

Great job!



Author's Response:

Thank you, Julie!

I had fun writing this and being inside of Edward's head. I thought it was time for readers to get a glimpse of what he was thinking and going through since we know how Bella reacted.

Hee!  YAY GEORGE!  I've not read this pairing before, and it was lovely to see George being a bit nervous for a change.



Author's Response: This is actually my favorite pairing, I have 10 or 11 one-shots and drabbles and a novel in the making. They just compliment each other so well.

It turned out beautifully, Gina!  The image of the past converging on the present is stunning.



Author's Response:

Thanks, Julie! I don't know about stunning - those two lines are still rather off - but I'm glad you like it! Thanks for looking at it! :)




Chapter 1: Founding

Any time someone dies, it leaves many people torn, and lost. With a large hole inside.

 

But what if it's more than a mere hole? What if half of you is torn away? And what if you're not the only person to feel this way about this single person?

 

Can you ever find a way to be whole again?

 

Runner-up in MNFF's Quicksilver Quills awards, for best Dark/Angst stroy.

Welcome to WizardTales!  The grief in this chapter is very evident - almost like you can reach up into the air and grab it.  Great job!



Author's Response:

OMG. I got a review from Julie. I may die happily now.

j/k. I'm glad you like it. thanks for the review!

Another gripping chapter.  There's a few minor SPaG errors, but overall I think you've captured the grief and just a glimmer of hope beautifully.



Author's Response:

Hey again. I'm glad you liked it. Thanks for the review!

Two halves of the whole, indeed.  I loved Angelina's line about falling in love with the whole as well as the half.

I'm glad you liked it, and thanks again for the review!

Jasper is such a fascinating character, and we really don't see enough of him in canon.  This was a delightful read of his encounter with Alice and his struggle with his new way of life.

This needs a Requires Tissues warning!  Gina, as always, you've grabbed hold of the heartstrings and pulled them. Sam's grief and anguish are so touchable and so very real that it's impossible not to feel it.

There's so much emotion packed into a short period of time, and I love that there is also just a touch of hope and happy waiting for both Sam and Frodo after all that they have been through.  Outstanding job!



Author's Response:

Thanks, Julie! I don't know if it's that sad, but I'm glad a bit of the hope and happiness came through too, because that's really what the end of LOTR is: it's bittersweet, sad and yet hopeful. Thanks for reading my first LOTR story, dear - and thanks for the lovely review! ~Gina :)
