Tear Jerker / Magic Shop

  • The penultimate chapter of "Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher", where Jeremy has to let Tiamat go away to another realm. Made worse when he briefly tries to stop her going and she halts midway through the portal to the other realm. Thankfully, the epilogue reveals they still have their mental connection with one another.
    • The ending was one of the most bittersweet things ever. "If you love her, you have to let her go!".
    • Thirded. Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher was the first book I've ever cried over and to date remains the only one. The situation - parting with a pet or friend, isn't particularly unique, and it's not written in an astoundingly beautiful way, but it just feels so right.
