I'm dying. I'm dead. Can you die from overexposure to fluffy, fic-related feelings? I don't normally read so much fic in one day, but I made your story my reward for a couple of review thread obligations and all of a sudden realized I'd read three chapters of it. I literally cannot stop reading this story if my life depended on it. True statement! And I'm going to apologize again -- not only do I not normally stock up reviews like this, but in general for long fic like this, I wait and leave a large review at the end. So right now, all these reviews, they're making me a bit dizzy. But if anyone deserves a review on every chapter, it's you. So I'm going to try my very hardest!
Literally the entire way through this I was on the edge of my seat, because if Arthur does or says one more adorable thing then I think the world is going to explode. I love his character as you write him so much!! He's so endearingly awkward, and you can just tell, even reading from Molly's perspective, just how much he genuinely cares for her. This was, I think, my favorite part of the entire story:
Arthur took it from her and slung it over his own shoulder without seeming to notice what he was doing -- Oh my gosh, HOW. CUTE. IS. THAT. I want my own Arthur Weasley, period, and now I finally understand people when they say that reading has given them high hopes for the male species. I love so much how you've characterized him, this sweet and chivalrous and slightly odd but nevertheless adorable sixteen-year-old. And again, it's so great how I can picture that and love that, and then turn right around and see how he grew up to be the man in the canon book series.
Molly and Arthur have a Hogsmeade date! Oh, I can't even begin to describe to you how excited I am to see that play out. ♥ Please tell me it's coming up soon? Unless you fill the time with more Molly/Arthur strolls around the castle, because I am down with that like you wouldn't even believe. Also, can we have a round of applause for Molly and her admission that she went to the library just to see Arthur? And for his admission that he can't concentrate when she's around? So sweet. I will ship them until the end of time.
These reviews are getting a bit out of hand. And I kind of feel sorry for you, when you read them. Gahh, I just adore this story. It's so fantastic!!
Author's Response: The fluff has got you. Much like the lake monster in LOTR grabbing Frodo and dragging him under the water, I think. The fluff is sucking you in. ;)
I haven't gotten a review on every chapter in forever, so I appreciate it greatly! I love reading lots of new reviews. It happens so rarely :) I sort of feel like I don't know what to do with them all! I really do appreciate it, it means a lot.
Arthur is especially adorable. The early days of a relationship, when everyone's on their best behavior. heh. He's just so ecstatic that she's paying attention to him and liking him back that he is over the moon. And he's a chivalrous sort of guy. He takes care of things for people, it's who he is. So of course he's the sort who'd carry her books for her.
The Hogsmeade date is coming up soon, never fear. Along with what I believe is the first appearance of Molly's brothers, who I am extremely fond of writing. They're hilarious. I think they steal the scenes whenever they appear. XD
They are super sweet. The fluff is sucking me in again now too. :D Thank you so much for the review! I loved it :)
