Now as the oldest child I can relate to this. So beautifully written and you really portrayed the characters perfectly. Am I correct in assuming that you are the oldest sibiling? Now that I think about it the last time I cried in front of my siblings was when I was about 6. I guess you really hit the nail on the head when it comes to masking your emotions as a older sibling but not hiding them. Brilliant and congratulations for such an amazing story.

I thought this was an interesting story. Actually, it was an eye opener. I've just realised that I've never seen my oldest brother cry. It could just be because I'm paranoid or the fact that this gives a perfect reason as to why. Thank you for sharing that.

I'm the eldest, and I completely empathise with Bill's situation. This is incredibly well written, and I have to ask whether you are an 'oldest-child', you are so good at writing it. :)

I am the oldest child in my family and I completely understand. I have a really good relationship with my younger sister who is a middle child. I have an awful relationship with my youngest sister. They never see me cry. I can't let my parents see me cry either. I can really relate to your version of Bill. I think he was portrayed well and realisticly. (Our family is rather tight knit. I wonder how on earth my oldest cousin copes.)

that is so sad! I love it, it was written beutifully (I spelled that wrong). There were a few spelling mistakes here and there but who cares.

i thought this was great. I'm not sure whether most oldest kids feel like this or not seeing as i'm an only child. I think that everyone was in character and it seemed to follow canon pretty well.

i'm the oldest sibling, and i understand completely. my little brothers never cry, but if my little sister cries (she's kinda sensitive, so its fairly often) i feel really responsible to comfort her, and usually i'm better at it than my parents. if i cry, which is hardly ever, my brothers and sister just stare at me and don't know what to do.
a couple years ago, my parents told us our grandmother had died. we went upstairs, and my sister started crying right away. i went into my room and locked my door becuz i was going to cry and i didnt want her to see. normally i'd comfort her, but i was going to cry, so i couldn't.
that being said, i really liked it. you portrayed it very realistically and i thought it was really good. :)

I love this. It's just how I think of Bill - as being teh one who holds his family together and takes responsibility for everyone else. Great job!

I know this story is old, but I'd figure I'd review anyway. I love it! As an oldest child, I completely empathize with Bill. Going off to college, there were definitely times when I wish it were possible to portkey home. And like the story says, I never cry. Well done!

Poor Bill! As a middle child, I can't really empathize, but I understood perfectly.
The only problems I saw were a few errant typos, but hey. I'm the Queen of Typos, so it's not really my place. :-)
