So, Sarah. I finally came down and read this, even though I spent ages procrastinating doing so. I didn't want to get to the part where Fred dies.

But my goodness, look at this story. This part was so incredibly beautiful. Hollis made me feel so much genuine sadness and anguish. The build up for this was absolutely perfect; I felt like I lost a friend along the way too. The descriptions were gorgeous and Hollis, as always, remained sympathetic and lovely. I loved Molly's eulogy - it was gorgeous and made me all crumbly and sad.

It's amazing what you've done with familiar canon characters like Fred and George and Lee. They feel so authentic and perfect and real to me. And with OCs like Delphine and of course, Hollis - this little fictional world is so complete by itself. Even though this story's been told in Hollis's perspective, it still has the magic of the Harry Potter books somehow. I don't know how you've done it, but this story is probably one of the few works of fanfiction that honestly feels like it could be canon.

I've spent the last hour or so reading and not doing homework and laughing and making odd strangled noises when important things have happened. Hollis is so delightful and such a wonderful narrator. I'm going to miss her and this story a lot.

And so, this story has taken its place among the best fanfictions I've ever read. I've never read a Fred/OC before and I never will again because as far as I'm concerned, this is canon and I don't care to read anyone else's spin on it. Thank you for all the laughter on this random night. My review's kind of a mess, but then again, so am I after reading this.

Author's Response: Celeste, I do not know how to respond to these reviews. All I can say is thank you, SO MUCH, for finishing the story and saying such lovely things about it. I'm thrilled I was able to impress you. Seriously, logging in and seeing those reviews was a fantastic way to start the day. I just. Gahh. I JUST WANT TO HUG YOU. Saying that it's one of the best fanfictions you've ever read - and you have read your fair share of fanfictions - is such an incredible compliment. And really, you've never read another Fred/OC? I've tried a few but it felt just a little off, which is why I wrote this. I've also read some Fred/Hermione, but most of them assassinated Ron's character and that was really off-putting. I'm so glad that you gave this Fred/OC a try and that you liked what I did with JKR's canon characters and their interactions with the characters I made up. I had so much fun writing it. I really miss writing Hollis. At least with my new story, I get to write about Fred again. ^ ^

Thank you so much, Celeste. You are amazing. ♥

P.S. WE ALL MISS YOU, COME BACK TO US.
