Hey, SamMalfoy93 here.

I had different assumptions to who it could have been - when i read the summary I thought Teddy, but that disappeared quickly, then I thought Andromeda, but then she showed up, then i wondered if someone close to him, like the loss of a child, but no. Then I went to family member, but I did not think Fred. Maybe I should have, because of the bit where Fred talks to Ted about proposing...

I really loved that; that I didn't know until the end. And the little story of that day in itallics throughout the one-shot was brilliant.

It really brought me to tears, not many stories have done that to me; I don't cry often. It was just so sad, Teddy blaming himself. And poor Fred. My first thought was another Fred Weasley is gone... Poor George. :(

Excellent story.

Sam.

Author's Response: Hi Sam! I really didn't want to make it too obvious who it was who died, just to force me to tell the story in more subtle ways than a direct telling. I wanted to build up the tragedy as the story progressed so I'm glad you had different assumptions. Reading it back myself, I don't think it was very obvious who it was, which is sort of what I was hoping for so that last line would deliver a punch. I'm so happy you liked that :)

*hugs* I really went all out on being mean to these poor characters. One of the main reasons I chose Fred was because it made it worse on the whole family, losing another Fred, George losing the child named after his lost brother, and that makes Teddy feel all the more worse that Fred's gone. That's why the summary is the way it is - it's not just Fred that's gone, but Teddy too, because the loss has destroyed everything he is.

Thanks so much for the review!
