I remember this story, maybe your best work so far. I loved this story as it put our predigest and our humanity at odds with each other. Molly had to put away her feelings of the past and embrace the now, she had to come to gripps with her love of every child.
A great story my friend.
I agree with the other review, 10 is not high enough for this story.
Thank you. It's nice to hear that. Means a lot to me.
Would you believe this was the story that got me 'asked to leave' that other big site?
This was great story topic, I couldn't wait to read it through. I think you nailed it right on. We all have our prejudices when it comes to family and friends.
although I must say I understand what the story was about and where Jake will go next. I still am confused as to what he is. An Angel, A ghost, what would you say he is?
Thank you, again, GH for those kind words. I am glad you liked it. Jakob is much like the ghosts in "A Christmas Carol", but not quite. And you can see what his job was. He is the sum total of all the children who never got the chance to exist because of the war. You'll notice at the end it's heavily hinted at that he showed up on the doorstep of Lavender Brown's parents. There were also two bits that I cut from the rough copy, which was over 10k words: Aberforth's goat, Essie remembered him when she ate the Christmas card that came there. I thougth that was silly. There was also a few lines where a mouse in the forest somewhere went running back to her nest with a scrap of lavender cloth. You can guess where that came from. Again, thanks for reviewing and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas.
TERRIFIC story, 10 is not high enough for this one so far
i certainly hope you continue this one.
I thought I read in the SHOUT box you would be gone a while. Glad you found some time to post this story
Thank you for the review and rating! I had some unexpected time off, so here we are. This story is DONE. I just have to get around to posting it. I will have it by Christmas, guaranteed.
