Gioia’s Rec:
Lady Altair has fast become one of my favorite writers of gen fics and canon pairings.  In this gen fic the author steps into the minds of canon characters doomed to short lives: Tonks, Sirius, Fred, Lily, Lupin and Snape.  The seemingly randomly chosen characters are depicted at the moment half-way between birth and death.  These snippets manage to capture their essence in delightfully poignant, beautiful and heart-wrenching moments. The overall picture created by these six disconnected drabbles is one of hope, humor, love, courage and beauty; in short, all that makes life worth living.  As is to be expected from this talented author, the characterizations feel dead-on, even outside of the events of canon.
