That is the single most perfect story ever. Thank you so much for that.

Wow. This fic was amazing.
I am really glad I stopped and read this because Andromeda and Ted's relationship is one of my favorites because it's amazing that they made it and I just adore them.
I can't help but hope for a sequel of some sort about Andromeda and Ted's future lives (I'll check your other fics in a minute though) but I understand that this fic is really about Andy and her sisters and I actually really do appreciate that because they had an interesting dynamic that kind of just fell apart as they grew up (as sibling relationships sometimes do, which is making me sad cause I'm now thinking about my own siblings and how much time we used to spend together when we were younger).
I like that we got to see Andy interact with Sirius (I mean canonically they had an age gap so they weren't as close but I like the idea of them all being good friends and such) and Sirius's relationships, James and Lily. I just adored all of it.
So brilliant job, I love this fic!

Yay! Wonderful story! I think this is story, of those I've read, has the best Andromeda-running-away scene. It wasn't overdone. It was actually relatively discrete, and I really like that! And all of the secondary characters that showed how not all Slytherins are evil were wonderful...
I just... I really like it.

I first read this a few years ago on UR, and I'm so glad I've rediscovered it here, because it's what really got me into Ted/Andromeda. I love how you managed to show all seven years of Andromeda's stay at Hogwarts (and without it getting too lengthy!), capturing the growth not only of her relationship with Ted (which I thought was amazingly done, just the right pace and tone and realistic) but of Andromeda herself. As much as I love Ted/Andromeda though, what really struck a chord with me with AKO was Andy's relationship with Bellatrix and Narcissa. It was heart-wrenching, reading Andy deal with Bella's slow descent into madness and Narcissa worrying about keeping her family together. Sirius and Regulus were really well-written as well. Thank you so much for sharing this story.

I had to go back a chapter to review, seeing as I apparently reviewed this story once before, but i just wanted to say This was such a wonderful fic to re-read. Just as amazing, if not more-so, the second time around. :)
I absolutely love your Bella, and the relationships between the Blacks.

I read all 31 chapters in a day and a half. they were so good, so realistic, so aware of emotions and war and that everything is not perfect. you are a very talented writer.

This was such a good story! There were a few discrepancies concerning canon, but they were minimal and did not detract from the story. You captured the Black sisters' dynamic perfectly, making the split between them bittersweet. And your Ted was so endearing! Everything went at the perfect pace and I was kept enthralled he whole time. I of course loved Bella, and you created a childhood for her that shed a little more light on the enigma that is Bellatrix Lestrange. I hope to read more of your stories from Andromeda's perspective, because she has always fascinated me as a character, and I think you captured her amazingly well. All of the backstory you created made the characters seem more relatable and was realistic concerning their adult characters. Thank you for such a great story and I will be reading more from you. -Caseyandra

One of the best fics I've ever read. Your characters just seem to come alive- from Andy and Ted and Bella, to Sirius and Will and Rabastan, all the way to your OCs like Cailean and Hadrian. The Slytherin culture seems so very real here, somehow- as does the fact that Bella and Lucius and the Lestranges were, no matter how insane they went later, children once. In a way, they were just as much Voldemort's victims as the Potters and the Longbottoms- victims of the world they grew up in.
A superb effort. Best of luck to you on all future projects.
