This made me cry. This definitely made me cry. I kind of love the unnamed husband of Ellimere. I definitely love the symmetry of this story, between the first and last chapter. It makes me happy to imagine the years of (mostly) happiness that Lirael and Nick must have shared (long rest my heart) to get to this point. Thank you for writing this.

"Her pulse beat in her ears, in her wrists, and she felt sick with it." I think this sentence captures Lirael's feelings after the battle beautifully. I also think that her mentality towards fighting is really mature- it's like she understands why fighting is necessary and yet doesn't want to lose herself to it. Overall this is really well written. :)
Oh! And one of my favorite quotes is "If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace", said by Thomas Paine. I was reminded of it by this chapter.

"Mrs. Sayre, Nick's mother, had had a magnificent hat that seemed bigger than her up until about ten minutes ago, when it spontaneously and instantaneously decomposed in a mess of organza and raw silk."
Best quote ever! Geez this made me laugh.

I didn't realize we had a category for the Abhorsen trilogy and just randomly came across it and I am very glad I did! (I was actually looking for Hunger Games :P) I love the Trilogy and even got the "Across the Wall" book so I could see if there was anything more on Nick and Lirael. This beautifully told a history in just under 3000 words and it was amazing to read. I like that it starts out with Sam's point of view and shifts to the others as the time goes on. Though I do wish we could've lingered more on the story between Nick and Lirael :)

I don't have any constructive criticism, but it was great! The colours were a nice touch. All the character deaths got me depressed tho. :( Anyway - NicholasxLirael ftw!

Aww, so cute! I loved your descriptions of all the people, and I especially liked Lirael's line at the end-very in character, I think. :)
