Review:Salem says:
You know, it just killed me when Fred died in the book, and when I saw it happen in the movie the sorrow was renewed again. And once again when I read this. Losing a twin--a brother and a best friend--I honestly could never imagine how heartbreaking and devastating that would be. But this fic captures George's feelings about losing half of himself quite well, I'd say. It's just about how I'd think twins who are very close would feel, too. The way you wrote the emotion was so painfully heart-wrenching that I have to admit it made me actually shed a few tears. I'm still sniffling!

The light, humorous note this story ended on did bring a smile to my face though. Balanced the angst well and was a very Fred-and-George thing to do.

This was just wonderful!!

Author's Response: It bothered me to know how much Fred's death would affect George. In an alternate universe, perhaps he recovered quickly and his wounds healed and he was okay. But I don't think it would have happened that way - and I think he would have suffered, at least in a tiny way - for the rest of his life. I really felt compelled to break George down to pieces in this one-shot and then sort of heal him myself, using their twin humor and memories of what Fred would have wanted. I'd like to think that eventually, someday, George no longer felt a painful void where he brother used to walk next to him, like mirror images.

Thank you so much for reading and reviewing. :)
