Review of chapter "Part 5" from Geyer
Great characterizations of the post-war Golden Trio here; I found it very believable. Aslan's suggestion to Susan about Edmund sharing his story seems to hint at the possibility that the interactions of the two groups could help them all heal. On the other hand, one of the difficulties in combining these sets of characters is that the Pevensies have a personal relationship with a true God, while we didn't see much evidence of religious belief in JKR's works. That might make it harder to find peace and to heal, if Harry, Ron, and Hermione started wondering what was wrong with them, that the God of their world hadn't helped them. Anyway, thanks for a thought-provoking story.

By the way, it looks like your spell checker turned the last name Pevensie into Pensive.
Comments from author:
One of the reasons I kinda indicated those sorts of interactions as being with Susan and Edmundwas because those were characters that lived through these things very humanly - with doubts, fears, and jealousies. Completely separate from any religious connotation (and I tend to write Aslan as non-religious anyway), I think those two would be most relate able. I was actually most thinking about Hermione needing to go through things out logically with a patient Susan (as well as talking about missing parents). And Ron getting over his guilt about leaving his friends while they were Horcrux hunting - and other things - while trading stories with Edmund. I thought that Harry would simply benefit, and find a lot of peace, from being in this place, new and interesting, with beings that that did not view him as the Boy Who Lived.

Hope that makes sense - and thank you for taking the time to leave a review.

Review of chapter "Part 5" from Oxnate
This is good. I liked your characterizations of the post-war Trio. Sadly we didn't spend enough time in Narnia for me to get a grasp of whether those characters were in character or not.

One thing I think was a bit off "We simply do no know when you will return because we do not know when we shall either." IIRC the Pensives didn't know that they were ever going back. But I could be wrong.
Comments from author:
I'm glad that you liked the characterizations of the three - I'm rather fond of writing interdependent friends. And I understand your complaint about not spending enough time in Narnia. In my mind I was simply leaving this as a sort of open-ended one shot, since it was a Wishlist prompt and not a long story I had planned out and had ruminating in my brain for months. But I can see from some of the comments that this open-endedness is rather frustrating, so I might end up writing an epilogue of sort to wrap it up more.

As for your second comment, I'm not completely sure what they were told either. I read all the books in one go quite a few years ago and really can't differentiate in by brain just -when- they knew certain things. So, you very well could be right. (It's late where I am now but I'll try to remember to flip through the book tomorrow and see if I can figure it out.)

Thanks for taking the time to review, Oxnate.

Review of chapter "Part One" from jaycatt
I have several more chapters to go on reading this, but I really like your psychologically damaged trio. That strikes me as a not-unlikely result of growing up in a magical war. I'll be curious to see how you take things...
Comments from author:
Thank you, jaycatt. I very much like writing HP post-series - which ends up being post-war as well. I've done a lot of fic and even a series that deals with this - my Fred Sola Lovegood Series. Which, while the main thrust is Fred Burkle being reborn into the HP universe to Luna Lovegood, it is also a very general overview of the HP world post-war. Ping-ponging through lots of characters POVs.

....and wow, I just majorly fell into plugging my own stuff without realizing it. I'm sorry about that. *shakes head*

Anyway, I thank you for your review jaycatt.

Review of chapter "Part 5" from (Current Donor)MarcusRowland
Interesting idea but seems to end a bit abruptly.
Comments from author:
Yes, this was another of those Wishlist fics and as I wrote it, I just wanted it as a bit of a one-shot actually - not a continuing story. I know it ends really suddenly but I rather liked that it left open possibilities. *shrugs* Perhaps, one day I will re-read it, get huffy about my own writing (and past-me's work), and add an epilogue to wrap things up better. *laughs* But for now, I'm rather content to end it with them walking towards the castle and the three all with the possibility of healing in Narnia in their future.

Thanks for reading and reviewing.
