OHMYGODTHANKYOUSOMUCHFORUPDATING

Ahem. Anyway.

Your Fred is fantastic. Your characterisation of him both alive and dead is absolutely perfect, the way you've contrasted both alive!Fred and brackets!Fred is nothing short of masterful, and I'm running out of adjectives.

I'm also quite in love with your use of space and punctuation. It reminds me a bit of House of Leaves, and anything that reminds me of that is a good thing unless it scares the crap out of me. It's actually a style I've always wanted to use, and I'm really glad that someone can pull it off.

And that last line - brilliant.

And now I will stop gushing and let you get on with it... at least, until the next chapter. Hey, at least you got an unexpected review out of it.

Author's Response: Caoty!

No, THANKYOUSOMUCH for the completely unexpected but flattering review =) Woke up to this and nearly wept big warm salty tears of joy =)

I found Fred pretty difficult to write because he's such an outgoing, quick-witted, funny character...even more so than George...and the complete opposite of the sort of person I am in real life :) I'm so glad you found his characterisation convincing; it's one of the things I've been worrying about. That, and whether the twins' voices can be differentiated from each other. And if their sibling relationship is adequately and convincingly portrayed.

Anyway, I love parentheses...so i took quite a liberty with them for this chapter. And the space thing just came to my mind when I was re-reading and editing the chapter. Just to break up the monotony a little and be a little experimental, y'know. I mean I'm supposed to be writing death and all. i think you should experiment with these things too in your story! You'd probably pull them off well :)

So anyway, thanks once again for your awesomesauce review!! I'm glad you like it =)
