This was really good! I like the idea of looking at different characters during the battle; so many people were effected by the war, in so many ways.

My favourite stories were Luna's (so very in character: "They should remember that a Crumple-horned Snorkack is harmless unless its home or family is threatened") and the story about fatality no. 36.

Goyle's story was painfully hard to read.

I love the idea of Codename Seas; of Colin being so (in)famous no one even refers to him by name.

My favourite line from this fic is Neville's: "It was second nature to me, because with Harry missing, someone had to do it. I wondered if Harry had the doubts and worries I did." So perfectly Neville.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. This story is the foundation on which I've built all of my other "after the battle" stories. Lavender, Susan, Terry, and OC's like Polly Protheroe, Mark Moon, and Aloysius Webb all appear in my other sories. Luna's chapter was a lot of fun to write, in fact all of her appearances were fun to write. It you want to find out more about fatality 36, you should read Fred and George's Busy Day, and you can find out more about Colin in Summer of '97. I found Goyle's story hard to write, but it had to be done. And if you're interested in more Neville stuff, there is Mistletoe Kisses and The Professor and His Landlady. Neville is a hero, but that doesn't stop him worrying. -N-
