I nearly stopped reading this when I came across three OCs ... but I carried on just that little bit more and then the tale that the three children had to tell had me captivated! You did Moody very well! I really would love to see him continue to interact with those children. For a moment, before I'd figured out the timeline, though, I imagined the girl would be Lisa Turpin. I suppose my only lament would be that you didn't have the Muggle-born boy as someone we would get to see in a passing mention in the books.

I like this fic a lot. The OCs are interesting, Moody is well characterized, and the situation is well plotted. The only tiny nitpick is that I don't get the impression from the books that Fidelius is nearly this easy to cast. Other than that, though, this is an excellent fic. Keep writing!

Oh, I love it! Magnificent look at the "disturbance" at Moody's house. I searched you out after I read about your love of Moody in the forums and I'm SO glad I did -- this is utterly wonderful. The bit where Lisa is cautious about drinking what Moody offers and Moody's very serious response just clinched the brilliant characterisation for me -- it's so quintessentially moody.

This was really touching. I also like how you wove history with Harry Potter's world. please keep on writing.

This is another of your stories that I read and loved ages ago, but didn't review. Better late than never...

Dennis, Lisa and Jeremy are delightful children; warm and very real. The scene where Rosier's wand works for Jeremy is one of my favorite story scenes ever!

I really enjoy the way that you write Moody! Gruff, unconventional, a true maverick, but under all the scars and the magic eye he's a decent and good person. I especially enjoyed it when he praised Lisa for being reluctant to drink the cocoa. ("Constant Vigilance!" :-))

Moody stories...oh yeah!

Seldes, I will let you know flat out that Moody is one of my favorite characters. I think he's as interesting as all get out, and I am so pleased that you are developing and using him in interesting stories that integrate both canon and original characters. You write well. Your writing background shows.

I think so much of Moody I'm trying to give him some family in the HP works that I'm writing, starting with his niece Amanda. But that's another conversation.

I just wanted to thank you for bringing one of my favorite, and in my opinion, one of the most neglected, Potter characters to life.

Thank you.
