Review:Arabella Figg says:
I'm not a huge fan of Trio era stories. I often times feel like we have gotten enough of the story from canon that I find fanfiction to simply be a retelling of events that we have already read. That being said, I really enjoyed this story. Mostly because we can see the blossoming relationship of Ron/Hermione from an onlooker's POV, one who has invested an interest in their relationship from the start.

Your narrative of Ron and Hermione's seven years of missed chances is wonderful. I think my only complaint is that I wished there was a bit more detail. I know that it would make the story even longer than it was, but sometimes I felt like you just skimmed over scenes and I would have enjoyed a bit more of it. Or maybe that's just me wishing there was more Amatis and Cariad. :) They were fantastic together. They have a natural friendship and I love that they make these challenges every year. It warms my heart, though, that Amatis felt deeply connected to Ron and Hermione to see them through until the end. I enjoyed Cariad's attempts at thwarting Amatis, but I'm happy that she realized they belonged to each other and stayed out of the way at the end.

There were a few grammatical errors that I noticed, but nothing that was too obvious to detract from my enjoyment. Another read-through might help clear some of that up. I should mention that at one point you referred to Amatis as a 'her', so that confused me a bit. "when Amatis found her friend sitting with an unconscious Ron" Just so you know.

You have a really wonderful, unique story and I'm glad I got the chance to read it. I would like to read more of Amatis and Cariad, should you ever decide to expand upon this story or do an off-shoot. :)

Author's Response: Hi, Santa!

I'm so pleased you enjoyed Hearts and Arrows. I wrote it incredibly quickly one weekend, one of those times when the story just seems to flood out of your fingertips, and I've always been proud of it.

Amatis and Cariad are such a lot of fun to write. I will absolutely be revisiting them at some point. They have a very different POV on life in the castle, which I find interesting. Plus - as a fluff and romance addict, I love the opportunity it gives me to indulge my pink side!

Thanks so much for all your reviews, it really has made my Christmas!
