Thank Merlin you didn't kill her. I held my breath ever since the appearance of Riddle above the house. I know how it will end, of course, but now I can imagine an alternative AU where they do grow old together.
What a wonderful story this is. Bones is so realistic, so every inch the Auror. I love that she addresses herself as Bones.
The Minerva cameo is just so, and I can see how Bones and Poppy would be great together.
It's a brilliant start of the fest, and it goes straight to the bookmarks.
