Very moving... personally this Is another of those fics that I've come to class as the "We Wish It Were Canon" fics there aren't many of them on my personal list, but this chap has made it.
Thank you, Basilisk.
That level of praise is rare and so, I appreciate every drop.
You are absolutely correct. Rowling's portrayal of the emotions of teenagers is shallow and two-dimensional. Even T H White did a better job with Arthur...and that's not saying a hell of a lot.
Thanks for the kudos.
