The concept and the vignettes are great. I like the way, throughout, you distinguish Dennis' view as he takes the picture from the view that the camera forwards to people looking at the photo.
I found this story on LordsFire's favorites page.

I love it. That's really all I can say. Great job!

Well this is it.
The only epilogue the HP series ever needed.
Reminds me a little of the epilogue of Suzanne Collins' YA trilogy, which has become so popular lately.
You wrote your piece in 2008 though, so I suspect no influence there.

Bittersweet and so true to the costs of war. It was so lovely to read.

I've probably read this at least thirty times, but it still brings tears to my eyes. Probably one of the best short stories I've read, beyond fanfiction.

I don't even know what I can possibly say.
It was honest and painful and sad.
And maybe even a little but hopeful.
It made me cry.

Beautiful. When I first saw this, I admit that I glanced at the review count beforehand; and I was honestly shocked. Over a thousand reviews for a one shot! I can think of at most, one other piece that shares the achievement, and this is by far shorter. What sort of masterpiece was this, to garner such high praise even half a decade after it was written? I simply had to know.
Curiosity piqued, I started reading.. and never have I once regretted it. The scenes themselves were short, but the emotion.. the sheer depth hidden within the words were truly spectacular. I have always loved reading tragedies, and this is perhaps my favorite.
The raw imagery is absolutely breathtaking, the full emotions weaved so subtly and brilliantly through each and every scene that I wish I had an album with the very pictures you described. It's a shame I don't have an account here - this would no doubt be one of the first on my favorites list.
You are a truly talented wordsmith, Lady Altair, and I shall cherish this piece for as long as I can. Thank you for presenting the world with with such a beautiful masterpiece and I wish you success in life.

I don't know what I can say here that hasn't already been said, but you should know that this is absolutely beautiful. I think I read it for the first time about three years ago, and ever since then I've come back to it to reread every couple months or every year or so. The imagery in your writing is so perfectly tangible that sometimes the words themselves get stuck in my head without me even trying to remember them. I'll find myself walking along and thinking about nothing in particular, and then a quick phrase from this story will pop into my head- sometimes I'll see someone with a tattoo and think about Lavender making herself "a living reminder." I don't know who you are, but mad props to you for writing this. It's a once-in-a-fandom kind of story.

I realy dont know what to say really. I think i am feeling somethig here- some foreign emotion, thick and heavy. It is amazing- i really dont get why i am feeling this and i feel ... Uncertain. I think i love this because of this strange feeling that just wont go away- not sure i like feeling it though. Weird. I will undrrstand completely if you have no idea what i am blabbering about, at least, even i am not quite certain, in any case. I think ill like to reread this again after a while- and see how i feel about it then.
