Oh, poor Hermione! But you've written her so well, trying to be practical and worrying over Ron's health while she truly worries about the state of his heart. It must have been so difficult for her to hear him taunting her about Harry when she struggled with getting him to admit his feelings for her for many years.

I liked how you mentioned that some of the same problems persisted even after the war was over, like the hatred of Muggles and the corrupt nature of the government. It must have been hard for Arthur to sit there and obediently do his job, knowing that his son's death had accomplished so little.

Oh, George... I was waiting for you to get to him. I was very nervous about what I'd find, and I'm quite saddened by it. Between the bit about the darkness making him look dead and the line where he wondered if he was even still a twin, I'm just about to cry. Poor thing. You did well with him.

Great work! One more review to go.

Author's Response: Thanks so much for reviewing! I'm so glad that that scene came out naturally- I had a lot of trouble writing Ron's drunkeness (though once I had decided that his reaction to Fred's death would be alcohol, the scene itself came rather easily).

The problems are never completely resolved at the end of the war- there are always the peace conferences, the talks about how to prevent it next time, the need to repair everything. Unfortunately, that was probably also true for the Wizarding world and that's why I mentioned it in the story.

I'm pleased that you think I characterized George alright- he is an integral part of the story from now on and he was probably one of the people most hit by the death of Fred in the Weasley family.
