I was actually afraid to read this at first, because I loved Pooh as a kid. But this was amazing, and you've captured all the characters so well. I enjoyed it a lot.

Sniff... very sweet... I'm sure it would make more sense if I'd actually read Winnie the Pooh (and or if I'd actually watched something other than "Winnie the Pooh Corner" growing up - I never learned of Christopher Robin until I was in middle school!) but sniff... growing up stories always get me... (and oddly enough I got rather upset for Pooh that they had to keep taking his memories - if you're going to enchant a bear, the least you can do is give him his memories back when you're through! But we can blame that on me being home sick when I read this...otherwise I'm not sure why a 27 year old would be upset at a toy having its memories removed!)

Anyway - lovely little story...

Touching but completely out of Dumbledore's character.

I've read this three times in the past two years and each time I tear up.

Milne captured the sense of growing up and becoming a humnan doing rather than a child being. Adding in Neville points out how he, as well as Christopher Robin, could no longer be children and the longing every adult feels once they realize they wish their childhood and innocence lasted longer than it did.

I have read other stories where Milne bequeathed Pooh and co. to lonely children and the magic in them was renewed with each new companion. Or was that at the end of the first Pooh movie? Lord knows it's been forty years since I've seen it.

Only a minor criticism, I think it would have been more poingnant if it were Augusta and Algie to have enchanted Pooh and left Albus out of it completely. But, that's neither here nor there, and the story stands well as written.

I am not sure what I think about this story. I am pretty sure I like it but am largely just confused by my thoughts toward this story.

This was awesome. I don't know why I hadn't read it before! You left me a sobbing mess at the end, for dear, sweet Neville.

What an original concept - that they would use Pohh Bear as a sort of mechanical friend and benevolent spy to watch over Neville, who surely needed it a lot.
thanks for adding a new perspective to the "boy with a bigger heart than brain"

You took one of my favorite chapters in all of literature and added Neville. How much fun. I'm going to have to read it again to understand the bonding of Neville and Pooh. What was really done with all those memories taken from Pooh and put in the penseive? What an interesting take on "a bear of little brain".

I read the 2 Pooh books aloud to my kids when they were young, and I remember when I came to this chapter I had a hard time reading it and not crying. He's not going to be allowed to do nothing anymore. That horrible, world-changing realization of what it's going to mean to grow up. And it's so true. I see my kids now (teens) play with younger cousins in a creek, and they don't get the same enjoyment out of it that they once did. "Nothing" was once the goal, the special time, the way life should be. Now, "nothing" takes on a negative connotation--like there are no friends to hang around with.

You have a gentle way with Neville here (and Albus, too) just like A A Milne has with Pooh. You've got the same tone.

Thank you.

Wow. Lighthearted, yet profound at the same time. While not saying much about the characters, a sense of WHO and WHAT they are is very pronounced, and adds a depth to it that is rarely found in the vast world of fanfiction. Bravo!
