Especially after a victory, it's so easy to forget that not everyone came through the fight intact. This is a great reminder of what Lake-town lost the night Smaug died. We really don't see enough fics of this kind, especially not ones so tenderly written.

A very touching and moving story, it is good to remember that even happy endings have their cost, and that helping others is often the best way to help oneself.

That was a beautiful story of adoption, however formal or informal, and what makes a family. Set in the destruction of Lake Town, we glimpse something in this story that went mostly unnoticed, as Laketown was not the focal point of The Hobbit. People were lost, children orphaned. And good people who survived would adopt those children, rich or poor. As someone who hopes to adopt someday, I love this story.
