|Reviews for Old Soldiers Never Die|
| Guest chapter 9 . 4/14
You don't need to apologize for arming Harry & his men with previous generation firearms. Part of the joy of stories about old soldiers returning to service is seeing them using the weapons they used when they were young. And some of those firearms were and are great designs that would be difficult to improve upon. Lastly if Her Majesty's government is arming a unit that's officially ceremonial, older surplus weapons would've easier to justify. As a lover of WWII history it just adds to my enjoyment.

This is a well written, thought out, and planned story. I give you my admiration and wish you luck with your writing. Toodles! *
P.S. I like how you planned it so Neville is the grandson of moody, very ingenious!

As with every story of yours that I happen upon, I greatly enjoyed this work and have nothing but praises for you. Ever since I read the story "Make A Wish", I fell in love with your creative way of diverting canon without spiralling off on ridiculous tangents with very little to do with the original point of the story's non-canon element. You are one of the shining examples of what I love about Harry Potter. There were a lot of issues I have with the book series - and the movies - but the world building and setup for the story bring about limitless potential. The variety of fanfiction, the different ways to re-tell the story, or tell a whole new story in such an amazing and limitless universe is just such a delight, and your stories are a perfect example. You introduce so much to the base elements you are given to work with, and you add so much MORE to the harry potter universe. Your stories are so engaging I find it hard not to read through your longer pieces such as this in one go, just because I can't bear not knowing what will happen next. Thank you for being an author. Thank you for bringing joy through your creative prowess to myself and countless others. Keep up the good work.

Lol... I dated a Marines Daughter one... He described in intimate detail what he would do to me if i 'hurt his little girl'

I have to say i like the idea of using old guns... I don't like the newer stuff made of plastic with little .223 rounds... Nothing smaller than .308 for rifles and .45 for pistols...

Aside from a work of speculative fiction called Silent Spring (which explored the question, 'what if DDT was bad for you?') there has yet to be any repeatable study linking it to health problems in birds or mammals.
There have been quite a few studies that claimed to have found such a link, but no one has ever been able to follow the claimed methodology and get the same results. There have been a few that were flawed to the point of absurdity - For example, one study found that DDT caused leukemia in mice. The test group mice were fed enormous quantities of DDT concentrate, at about the level of exposure a human would get from eating 10-20 pounds of it per day (or standing in 50,000 crop dusted fields per day). The problem was, that the peer reviewers discovered that the researchers had ordered the wrong mice from their supplier (transposed digits in the product number) and instead of the mice without even the genes for leukemia they wanted, got mice that already had leukemia. Ultimately, that study found that DDT does not cure leukemia, but does make mice so healthy that they lived twice as long as mice in the control group, due to a total lack of parasites.
Mosquitoes are the deadliest animal on the planet to humans, spreading diseases that have killed billions of people over the years. Using DDT, those diseases changed from plagues to being less dangerous than the flu. Using DDT-alternatives, the world is back up to thousands of those completely avoidable deaths every year.
