nicely written one shot.
i never experienced abuse as a kid, rather i was abandoned in the streets of seoul near the orphanage. all we can do is move forward and look towards the future; happy new years.

I agree child abuse is a horrible thing. I have a kind, loving family who, yes, I ocasionally argue with but I could never imagine being abused. I love this story and its message.

This paragraph was amazing : After watching the Wizarding World finally band together to fix what had been broken so many years ago, a small, too thin angel turned away from his home and flew, flew to the place where he knew for sure he was loved. Into the waiting arms of his parents and godfather, and to of course, play Quidditch with Cedric. He was free, and loved at last. This whole this was heartfelt, but reading that made me cry.

I agree. When I was younger I was abused by my stepmother. No one believed me except my sisters, brother, friends, and mother. Now my stepmother is being nice and my mother is abusing my brother and I. Only my sisters and friends believe me. My grades are getting lower and lower because of this. Seeing the counselor only makes it worse. My brother tried. It got worse. Child Services here in Benton County sucks. I might even have brain damage from what they did.

That last line is the truest words I have ever heard. Death seems to end many things and then people regret that it had to be a death to end it in the first place. Death also brings to light many artists who only become famous after they die. Tis sad...
This story was amazing. Thank you so much for sharing.

I love how Voldemort was good-ish in this. Great job, this is a truly moving piece, and, of course, I agree with everything you said about child abuse- it is wrong!

Wow, this really is a fantastically written story. It brings light to a terrible thing while not putting it in an overly sweet or terribly gruesome way.
It didn't really hit me until Voldemort carved the quote into his gravestone. Then I just started crying & had to take a break from reading.
Fantastic story & fantastic writing.

My that was so beautiful! My grandmother was abused in her first marriage(I know this is not about child abuse but abuse is abuse)and my mother was abused by her father(that's the first marriage father)and new wife. But it makes you stronger as you get older if you don't give up. It was nicely written!

I would like to thank you for writing this, I myself come from a home with an abusive father both mentally and physically, I always say evil wins when good people do nothing- Im lucky I have an amazing mum thats helped me through all my problems but not everyone has that, perhaps stories like yours will make other realise to help instead of just watch. Abuse must stop and every voice counts.

That was heartfelt and really hit me hard. I have friends that used to be abused and the same thing could have happened to them. I really love this story. Grat Job.
