Wow this is beautiful. I just came across this because of your note in your other story, Giving Himself. The message brought out is beautiful. I never thought I would come across this in fanfiction but I'm glad I did. Thank you for sharing this! :)

Simply amazing. I cannot stress this enough: This is the kind of story that keeps me reading. I read ff about half of the time and it always blows me away when I find a gem that outstrips much of the published tripe out there.
Thanks so much for sharing your time and talent.

Wow. Just... wow. This was so original and amazing that I have no words beyond these. Fantastic job.

A sad and sweet story. I read because you suggest at the end of "Finding Himself." I'm really not very into Harry Potter. I have seen the movies, and they were good. But I keep seeing FH recommended around the Twific world. So here I am.
The 1st ch of FH has hooked me. Your writing, through Cedric's narration, is so moving. I hope I can last through all the chapters.

This was amazing. Hands down one of the most interesting, introspective pieces I've ever read. It's absolutely wonderful, even if it did make me cry a bit at the end.
I don't think I'll ever be able to read about Cedric again without forgetting that he wasn't actually influenced by his Canadian counterparts in canon.

I found this story thanks to a rec by the lovely Miaokuancha - author of "A Garment of Brightness."
I appreciated it very much!

Made me really admire Cedric, which broke my heart by the end of it. The think that THIS is who died...
With your words Cedric became more than a handsome boy in Hufflepuff, and that takes skill.
The only thing McGonagall could have done better would be to hang it in all of the House Common rooms so that Cedric could CONTINUE to influenced the students of Hogwarts.
I'm certain she kept a copy in her office so that SHE would always remember.

Thank you. I feel like you taught me something. Very well written.

I just wanted to say that this is my first HP fic, and I'm so glad I read it! I'm a diehard Twilight fic reader, but saw some recs for your HP stories by another author (sorry, wish I could remember where, as they were VERY complimentary!), so thought I'd check them out. I see you write Twilight, too, which I look forward to reading, but really was intrigued with this premise.
I'm also a huge HP fan (on my 3rd reading, having already read them once myself, then again with my daughter, and now with my son), but haven't read any HP fics until now, mostly because Twilight fics take up all of my spare time! I guess with the last movie having come out, I was feeling a little sad about the "end" of it all, so I decided to check out some fics, just to feed my HP addiction.
This was beautifully written, and I think fits in perfectly with canon. I always wished she'd written more of Cedric's history, as I thought he was an intriguing character. I guess, as with Twilight, I always want to know MORE, which is what led me to fanfiction in the first place. I have a feeling I'm going to be adding HP fics to my reading list. Wonder where I'll find the time?
Anyway, I'm looking forward to checking out more of your stories-both HP and Twilight. They all sounds wonderful.

This is not my first time reading this fix and probably won't be my last.
I adore your writing, and pass on links to your fictional work all the time.

It's very interesting to see how wizardy could be in other parts in the world than Europe. I often wondered that if Voldemort was so dangerous, then why didn't they get help from all over the world? Then again, it's probably a politics kind of thing.
I like that you've made the 'wizards' of the Native American culture completely integrated in said culture; they're not separated like the muggles and wizards in Britain. The Native Americans themselves are somewhat outsiders of the main American culture as well (in my eyes at least. I'm someone from Europe who has never met real Native Americans and whose only knowledge about them comes from TV movies or series, which I don't think are very reliable information sources). The 'exclusion' happens twice, but based on different characteristics. Wizards separated from muggles, Native Americans from the masses. I often enjoy to read how a bystander would look at a culture, and that's exactly what Whitecalf did to English, and Cedric to Whitecalf's culture.
I also enjoy your characterization of Cedric. The characters in Harry Potter never really got to me, they were just 'paper people', and I read the books because I wanted to know how they ended, but most characters didn't come to life. Cedric here got some flesh and blood.
It's completely in character for Dumbledore to keep a treasure box with the great papers his students have written, and Minerva was the perfect person to find it.
Don't know what else to add, I couldn't find something for you to improve, so just see that as a compliment.

This gave me chills. I'm Canadian and Ojibwa myself, so this made me proud. You're amazing!
