    September When It Comes

    September When It Comes by SundanceKid

    Summary: Seven years at King’s Cross for Teddy Lupin. Oneshot, 4,577 Words.

    Why You Should Care: It just feels so right. Teddy grows up just like any boy might, and my heart was full of love for him by the end. Appearances by others felt very well characterised and realistic, notably Andromeda and Harry, and… it’s just such a good read. You know that full feeling in your chest that’s equal parts triumph and ache? Yeah. SundanceKid’s got that down to a tee.

    Why You Might Not Care: If you don’t really care about the Next Generation, you won’t read this fic, and that’s fine. (Otherwise… go.)

      That almost made me cry…and I’m not sure why as it’s not particularly angsty or heart-wrenching as fics go…

      This is a fantastic imagining of Teddy Lupin as he transitions from boy to man, and captures the complexities and stresses of his unusual family situation very realistically. We follow him through his Septembers and the dance of family and friends at King’s Cross, and Teddy goes through all the phases we expect of teenagers. His particular and unique set of circumstances are addressed, but in the end what is most telling is that Teddy Lupin is just as normal as the next teenage boy, in his own unique way. Well built, and well thought out.
