I've read many stories. I've cried and got angry, and continued to read. I must say, "So Listen..." Has been the best story I've read so far. Thank you for making me cry, and thank you for making me hate you. I loved this more than I can say, and I wish I didn't. it would mean they'd have a happy ending, but reality isn't always about happy endings.
Fred. I think you captured him perfectly. I've never read another story that seemed so realistic. Great job. Fred has always been my favourite character. Always. George coming in second, but Fred always seemed a bit more competitive. A bit more outgoing, I would like to think I could tell them apart, if I had been on paper in a story(:
I used to want to believe that Fred and died without love. Died young, forever twenty. But, that's unrealistic. It makes sense that he had someone, before he could have someone. It someone makes his death seem more tragic, much more realistic.
Again, thank you for the tears, for the hate, and thank you most of all for giving Fred this story. For making sure he wasn't another name, another number. Thank you telling his story, ensuring that he indeed, had one.
Author's Response: *jaw drops* I can't even tell you what an amazing compliment that is, saying this is the best story you've read yet.
I prefer Fred over George, too (obviously :3). And you're right, he's more outgoing. I'm currently rereading Goblet of Fire and JKR seemed to give him the wittier lines. He's a bit rougher around the edges than George, too, and more quick to prank.
Thanks to fanfiction, Fred has many, many, many stories and will never have to just be another name or number. I am so, SO grateful and appreciative that you chose to read this particular one, and that you left me such a lovely review telling me your thoughts. Thank you for the tears and the hate, and for being a fellow Fred-lover. :)
