Tagging you from the Review the Person Above You thread in the common room.

This was really touching. George was definitely a "soft casualty" of the war: what he lost wasn't as plain as a death or an injury, but he paid an enormous price, nonetheless. His introspective journey through all of the locations that remind him of Fred made for a great read.

First off, I loved the jigsaw puzzle metaphor. Especially the part about what invariably happens to the pieces. It was a great way to start things off.

Fred's copy of the Monster Book was a clever little touch, but you've filled this chapter full of those. Returning to the room Fred shared with his brother felt really emotional, especially his plea to Fred not to let him turn into a recluse.

The Slinkhard book George finds in Grimmauld Place was another great, obscure little thing to pluck out of canon. Your memory is really good! The prank that Fred and George pull on Umbridge as they leave school is really their defining moment in the series, so it was nice that you made reference to it.

And then there was the scene in the castle. That was pretty hard to read. In nearly every other fic covering the immediate aftermath, Hogwarts is rebuilt fairly quickly. For the purposes of this story, I like that you've left it damaged. It's a good metaphor for where George is coming from.

Overall, this was a great little story. Very nicely written, free from any errors that I could find, and filled with feeling and emotion. Well done!

Author's Response: Thank you so much. I couldn't believe that JK made Fred die, all I could think was that I wouldn't ever split up the twins.

I was trying to include as much references to familiar objects to canon like the books and Muggle stuff like the jigsaw, and I'm glad that came through.

Also, I always assumed they left Hogwarts in ruins for a bit, like a kind of memorial- they left James and Lily's house.

Thank you so much, it means a lot that you liked it.
