There's so much pain in this piece and I could feel it all. I don't even know how to review this, because I think it was really, really well-written. You handled George's angst with a very unique way. Your descriptions and some sentences were beautiful. I loved the imagery, I loved how strange and odd George viewed it all because of his shock.

The scene where Lee mistook George for Fred and he just led it slide was really spooky and so sad, and when Percy came and it felt to George as if he had lost his twin all over again, that just broke my heart. I find all this so hard to describe because Fred's death was terrible and I still don't get why. When his dad and brothers tried to pull George away from Fred, it was a mixture of feelings, because I knew they had to do it, they had to get him away, but at the same time I wanted to yell, Leave him alone! Just leave him with Fred! And then you killed me, because when Ginny came and told him she'll stay with him and slowly managed to peel him away, I just lost it. It was so heart-breaking and gentle and I loved that you chose Ginny. It was mentioned a few times in the books that Ginny spent a lot of time with the twins and...I just don't know what to say! That part almost made me burst into tears.

I might have clapped my palm over his mouth I might have forced that last breath back in. This is such a fantastic line. I just wanted to point it out because it really grabbed my attention and touched me in a way. Amazing line.

Overall I'd just like to say that this piece of writing really moved me. You conveyed the emotion perfectly, and portrayed the scene very well in a few words. It was great how George's perception of everything was hazy and torn in places, because he felt so out of this world right after Fred died. Then the last part, as he heard his laughter echo, and it sounded very odd, that felt so strangely haunting.

I think this could easily stand as a one-shot and be perfect, but I'm really intrigued as to what comes next because your summary is so mysterious. I also have a thing for fics that takes us into a world after death, they're really exciting! Unfortunately, I have to run to school now, but you can count on me reading the next chapter after I come back. It's mostly because of your writing. There's something to it that really makes me want to read more of your work. So, until the next chapter. :)

Author's Response: Hello Liz!

Wow, thanks for your fantastic compliments and review :D It's always such an honour and tremendous encouragement whenever someone gives such positive comments. I'm really glad you like it; your review has certainly made my day :D

I was originally thinking of writing a one-shot with this - just giving a portrait of George's grief and sense of loss...but I wasn't satisfied. There are lots of one-shots about Fred's death, and what I want is to really explore how George gets on with his life by himself. Also, I can't stand the thought of having a longer multi-chaptered fic of George by himself so I had to bring Fred back (not from death, but at least give him a voice - the second chapter features (un)dead Fred's POV). I'll be sort of rebuilding the Weasley twins' lives. Or at least trying to! Hopefully this story will go somewhere and not end up being useless stretches of empty prose!!

Thank you so so so much once again for your wonderful review :D I hope you keep reading and enjoy the following chapters as much as this one!
