Wow, this is good. I like it because, ya know, not many people would have thought to write a fic from baby Harry's POV, and I think you did a good job at it. Keep it up!
Author's Response: I really appreciate that - thank you. This scene has been done in fic already, but I really wanted to show Harry's POV - even babies are very aware of their surroundings, so what he went through is just heartbreaking to me.

I don't think I've ever a fic as sad as this was. I was sobbing. It was very well done. I love that it's from Harry's point of view. It was perfect!
Oh dear. I'm sorry. The thought of Harry's experience has just gutted me for years. It's one of the cruest things Jo every wrote. The poor, poor thing.

Sorry, more to say. That was very moving...just heartbreaking. Great job...if that's the right words...you know?
Author's Response: I think I do know. It's just so horrible. JKR has written some gut-wrenching tragedies. *sigh* I just play with them. ;)

That was a great story. It just breaks your heart to think what Harry might of saw and felt that night. Great job!!
It really, really does. He had over a year to bond with them. I have no doubt that would have been horrific for him. *sobs*
Thank you! ;)

Ohh, that was so sweet and sad. Poor baby Harry. Little did he know, right? *wipes tear* Loved it.
Can you imagine? Fifteen month old babies can understand a lot of language (in some cases more than one) and are very attatched to their parents. Even though you forget those memories by adulthood, you can still be traumatized by them. Ugh - see me carry on? The idea just kills me! *snuggles Harry*
Thank you! ;)
Author's Response: too bad I can edit typos....
Author's Response: can't! see?

Out standing! You were able to capture the peaceful love of a family holiday and the anguish of a father not being able to defend his family from unspeakable horrors in such a small space. The love that saved Harry is so clearly present you can almost feel it yourself. I so wish I could cuddle the crying Harry.
Author's Response: That is such a kind thing to say! It was in my mind to show more of the Halloween celebrating, but I just got so thrown off by trying to maintain the POV of a baby! Hee. But it was a good learning experience - thank you!

That was amazing, *is choking back tears* *sniff*, Fabulous *applauds* ;)
Author's Response: Oh my goodness, thank you! *blushes*

I am just blown away by this. I love how it was written. And the whole snapshot of the family in the moments before the end are just heartwrenchingly beautiful.
Oh oh oh! Such love for baby Harry.
Thank you so much! I really lamented over it, it's kind of tricky to capture a believable 15 month old's POV!
I know, you just wanna squish him!

I do know how to climb out of this cot so I immediately put my stuffed dragon against the side rail and stand on it, raising my leg over the edge.
Already such an action hero.
You made me cry, you toad.
Baby Harry - you can't help but want to fix it all for him and of course that would change everything. *sniff*

See, you are so good at the darker stuff. Whether you like it or not Maple you have 'The Gift'! *lol*
Author's Response: Hee - well it is fun to dabble in the darkness a bit. Though almost all of this particular bit was written by JKR herself, so I can't take much credit. ;) Thank you!
