Oh, Helen, this just...hurts. It's beautifully written, very raw. You've exposed the Weasley's grief so naturally, without it seeming overdone or not enough. I love that you tell this from Ginny's perspective and not George's. It gives us an opportunity to see how someone else in the family is affected by Fred's absence. I love her observations of the twins, and how close she is to them.

This line killed me: not least because she knew she had no right to miss Fred so much, not when George had lost so much more.

I think my favorite scene was when Ginny went down and Molly was knitting the sweaters, and she still knit one for Fred. Then Ginny asked for it, and ohmygod, my heart.

And then George giving her a smile, just trying a bit too hard to act like he was okay, so much hurt. But you write it all so subtly and beautifully.

A few errors I happened to notice: let her thoughts wonder - wonder should be wander and at one point, you call the Weasley's the Wesley's.

Other than that, this was fantastically written and just so wonderfully done. I love the Weasley family but am not a huge fan of fics that surround them, but you did a wonderful job with their dynamics and how it's affected by Fred's loss. The idea of Molly clutching her clock when everyone was absent, just so she knew where they were, and Fred giving Ginny George's sweater because they share them...it's just...perfect.

Just perfect. :)

Author's Response: Ooh thank you so much! You're so lovely!

I've just suddenly realised that I don't know your first name... do I? Maybe I do. Its strange not being able to first-name right back at you. No, I do know it. Everything's fine.

Thoes pesky errors! Its cause I wrote this at a very early point in the morning so I could sumbit it before the queue closure, but... no regrets. I've actually changed a couple of things you've mentioned there. It's one of the many edits I have in the queue.

I've never written anything so Weasley-centric before this, but now I'm sort of tempted to. And definately not from Ginny's POV because I'm still not even sure whether I like Ginny but... yeah, I enjoyed writing this a lot and thank you ver very very very very very very very very very very much (that word feels strange to type when you type it that many times. Do all words do that? Thanks thanks thanks thanks thanks... no, just very. Huh. well. Learn new things and all).

Weasley jumpers are just so cute that anything associated with them automatically becoems cute, I think. So that's all down to JK I feel ;) Thank you!
