Chapter 1

"Playground school bell rings again."

Time for class.

"Rain clouds come to play again."

It's not the same now that the Dementors are here. The cold just won't stay away. I wish you were here to keep me warm.

"Has no one told you she's not breathing?"

They told us you were dead today…

"Hello, I'm your mind giving you someone to talk to."

I refuse to believe that.


Please let this letter find you safe. PLEASE let me know that you're alive. That you're alright.

"If I smile and don't believe..."

I continue with the task that the Dark Lord has set. I must not fail.

"Soon I know I'll wake from this dream."

Maybe it would be better if I failed. Maybe then I would be with you again.

"Don't try to fix me, I'm not broken."

I am shattered beyond repair. I have not heard from you in months. Our daughter will be here soon, but you must not know, or you would be here. Who is intercepting our letters?

"Hello, I'm the lie living for you so you can hide."

I know that you are out there alive somewhere, but I grieve for you as though you have died so that you will remain safe.

"Don't cry."

It hurts so bad. This pain is unimaginable. Almost impossible to bear. Our daughter is coming. She'll be here soon, and there is blood everywhere.

"Suddenly I know I'm not sleeping."

Please come for our daughter. I won't be able to hold on much longer. I won't be here to watch her grow. There was too much blood. I lost it too quickly for it to be replaced. I am hemorrhaging to death they told me. Lily came out wrong. They told me she was breech, but they had no way to stop her entrance into the world. Stubborn just like her Papa. They had to choose between me or her. I told them to save our sweet angel. She is innocent…pure. She has not yet sinned as I have. I hope she will never have to.

"Hello, I'm still here."

I will always watch over you my dear. You and our sweet babe.

"All that's left of yesterday."

I'm so glad you have each other in our lives. But I am heartbroken that she serves as a reminder that I am no longer there with you. Do not blame her for that. It was my choice, and my choice alone. I love you.

P. A. Clouden: The world you've created here is powerful, dark and eerily prophetic. It's a poignant look at what a dystopian America can look like and how far off we are from it. I love the social commentary and message you're providing here. Very strong start.I also agree with Caitlin that some more detai...

dapharoah69: I gotta hand it to you. This was a great read from start to finish. I am a big fan of witches, thanks to Anne Rice. The characters really reeled me in from the very first few chapters. You make reading fun.

Silver: Its a very good story you have here. Felicity´s ability is interesting and original, I love it. The setting of a hostpital was a good choice, especially since we get the scene with the other interns, gives it a very real feel. There wasnt much plot for me to rate, so I´ll update as the story prog...

Alana Dill: Well, that was very fine indeed. Well-crafted story gives a lot of insight into Wray's life as a con guest. I love the little details about signing, and his interior monologue as his conversation goes down in flames. All the characters seem real and engaging. It makes me wish Christina Hendricks ...

Bella_Lee_Taylor: the plot of the story is good and I can't wait to read the second book, but you need to check your grammar because as I was reading there were were important parts of the story some of the spelling and grammar were out of place and the way you you worded things can be better but I can see that th...

Caitlin E. Jones: Beautifully constructed and verse-like, this novel is as poetic as it is intelligent. The story's world is spellbinding and realistically put in ways, drawing from a "Game of Thrones"-like darkness around the main character's life. His surrounding cast is so dynamic and memorable, all without clu...

AnnaLucia: This fanfiction has an amazing plot. It's very different from the books, yet the author still managed to keep the personalities the characters had in the books. Your Alec and Magnus still are themselves, even though you created a different plot where Bane had to seduce Lightwood to get informati...

Trahelion: This was an enthralling tale! There is, of course, the implied continuation of this plot and I would love to see it, to learn the motivation of the terrorists and their capabilities.Your character is fascinating, and I could see the fact that he could be controlled may serve as a major plot point...

Anjali Roongta: Amazing story! Update soon?I love the way you show the relationship between James, Theo and Harry but would love to see characters apart from the main ones, characters such as Remus and Sirius and such and see their interactions with our favourite dimension traveler. Overall, a delightful read.

Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...
