Mythological Stories chapter 40 . 12/3/2014
It's a weird feeling, finishing this story.
In a way, I'm kind of glad it skipped over the war scenes, because I don't think I could've taken that,
But in another way,
I don't think I was happy finishing this, just, at peace.
No happily ever after, which I'm used to, but then no horribly sad ending.
Just Kara continuing with life, existing, and I guess that's the real reason I like this story. (And I do like it) I was prepared for this horrible scene where Kara breaks down, and I bet she did, but she had time to prepare, then again, no amount of time can prepare you for no longer having one of your few links.

I wondered this entire time how she was faring without her old life. I kind of imagined it like immigrating and leaving behind your entire family. You cope a little knowing they still are there, but with her, there's no way to see them again. So Remus became her family, completed her even though one by one they were getting picked off.

I remember reading somewhere, that Hogwarts was built to hold 1000 students, but Harry's year was barely 40. I imagined a sort of baby boom, like the one that happened after WWI, where the people who survived celebrated, and were grateful for life, but with such a small community the warfare would have hit closer to home. I would've imagined that the new generation would be even smaller.

I really do sort of want to see what you would do after this, because you focused so closely on Cannon, and managed to fit Kara in without construing the plot (excluding Sirius), I want to see what you would do without those constraints, where you have this freedom where the future of your story isn't outlined.

Usually, I wait till I finish a fanfic until I post a review but this,
This just hit in places that shouldn't be hit.
I've realized a lot of times, throughout this place and really it's not the writer's fault, but they glorify war, and really, that's the point of fanfics, to dramatize, to make small, to glorify the things writers feel should have,
And I'm glad they can,
But sometimes, I come across little things like this,
A few pebbles in a stream,
That sort of make you realize what a monster war is,
What, despite all the writing JK Rowling did for children, the underlining tones hinted at.
It's funny how I needed fanfiction to open my eyes to the plot of the actual canon story, Or maybe it's that I've gotten old enough to recognize it,

What does it feel to be around the people you love, and know they're dying? To know every horrible moment of their lives, and because you love them so much you can't leave them behind but then - you can't change it either. You watch them die, you watch them grow, you watch them cry, KNOWING it was going to happen but not doing anything about it, because you can't. The fact that you can't doesn't take away from the guilt though, because in some way, there's that "what if"
And really, I just wanted to sort of thank you for opening my eyes, even though I doubt you'll see this.
Fanfictions rarely hit me like this, but the emotion Kara felt, in a way a lot of which take place in my mind, hit me like a train that I should've known was coming,
So thank-you, And on with the story I go

This story is amazing! I'm very happy that you wrote and finished it & well had the Idea. :)
The Idea that she goes there and knows what will happen but can't do anything about it is kinda cruel, bur a very very good and also a believable plot!
I also really enjoyed that it was clear that Sirius and Kara belong together but they didn't get together too early, but at the perfect time. (Even though through out the story I hated you for that :D)
Well, I just wanna say thank you! You made a boring rainy day amazing & full of excitement :)

So beautifully amazing! This story was everything I could hope for, it made me sad, hopeful, happy... I like that unlike most fanfiction this story had an actual story line, instead of just a 1000 chapter fic about everyone being happy. There was a real struggle for this character in this story, and she wasn't perfect, nor did you make it easy for her. A story like this is the reason I struggle so hard to look for hours upon hours for good stories like this I missed in my previous searches. Thanks for the amazing story, it was beautiful!

...You're breaking my heart here...
and I don't mean because they're staying friends, that makes a lot of sense. I'm just experiencing many feels.

Okay, if the previous two chapters hadn't done it, this one would have. I'm officially hooked.

VERA VIV chapter 40 . 9/23/2014
This was a fabulous story that brought me on a wonderfully emotional journey. You created some very real and depth filled characters. You wrought a beautiful story filled with humor, heartache, tragedy, friendship, and love. I cannot say enough good things. Beautiful work.

Cant praise you enough on this story, I loved it from start to finish!
Marcodurp chapter 40 . 9/20/2014
This story was truly amazing. I started it today and couldn't pull myself away until the end. You have a true gift with words and you are blessed with the ability to stir powerful emotions in people with written words. I hope you keep up the writing. It would be a true loss for someone with such a gift of the written word like you to stop.
Keep up the brilliant work!

These two are driving me crazy! Im just waiting for them to get together, I can feel the tension just from reading it! At the beginning I thought she would be good with Remus, but now, not so much. Il this story so much!
TeddyGramzs chapter 27 . 9/1/2014
Why would she feel guilty? Its quite clear at the beginning with the talk with Dumbledore (not that talk!) that she physically can't talk about it. And with Gideon that she also can't move to change anything, so why would she feel guilty? Also, I'm very anxious to know her purpose in the wizarding world. Everything has gone as the books say so far, I'm waiting to see why she was transported to the wizarding world. I hope its something big! Love the story BTW!

Holy. I'm crying so much. Thank you for writing this.
FandomDrunk chapter 12 . 7/30/2014
also i feel like your take on lily was fucking amazing, okay. like you know how many fanfic writers have tried so hard to not include "pride" and "arrogance" when they describe lily? well, i'll tell you. a LOT. they don't like to admit it because they think for some weird reason that the readers would like her any less for being more like a legit human being. but lily's flaw is her pride, and i am so fucking glad you actually wrote it out properly. thaNK YOU.
