Review:Gabriella Hunter says:
Hello!

I told you that I would be back and I'm really sorry that I haven't given you a proper review. Real life came in the form of me being busy with military stuff and I've been trying not to cry as my laptop is still, sadly, deceased.
Anyway! :D
What a nice way to start this chapter. Its always great coming back to George (As you know, I'm such a fangirl where he's concerned) and I really enjoyed the lightness of the poker game. Lee was hilarious and I it was a pleasant surprise to see a slightly more mature Ron there too! The passage of time is nice and I got the sense that he and Angie are slowly molding into one another in a really nice way. Does that make sense? I hope that didn't sound perverted...
What's really great I think is that George is slowly pushing himself towards the rest of his life and really going for what makes him happy. With Mr. Zonko of course and his relationships, I'm really happy to see that he's moving forward. If only a little and I'm happy that you've put in some of his sadness for Fred, which is something that you could never get over of course.
Now, the second half!
Talk about a girl blushing over here! See how mature I am? Hahaha. While I did really like that Angie and George are getting into the habit of being together and snogging on desks and such, its really nice to see their relationship developing. Its great that he sees her as someone so important in his life and her determination to be with him is just...perfection. Sigh. What's funny but not-so-funny I guess is the fact that we had sort of a mind meld! I sort of had a fangirl moment myself because, in my Georgelina, George actually expands the shop sort of in the same way! Hahah. My face was sort of embarrassing to be honest. Anyhoo, can't wait for more of this and I hope everything goes well for you with school and congrats for all the votes you got for the Dobby's! :D
Hope to see you on the forums too!
Much love of course,
Gabbie

Author's Response: Heyy! I never doubted that you'd be back ;) seriously, though... your enthusiasm rocks and means a lot to me.

I always feel like I can pick whether I enjoy writing George chapters or Angelina chapters more, but truthfully, I like different facets of both of them equally well. I don't know if you've noticed or not (I'm not even sure how evident it is in the story just yet... but perhaps after you read the next chapter) but George's chapters are slowly lightening insofar as mood and his general demeanor towards life. But because it's a cyclical story I'm hoping to balance out the lightening of his chapters with a gradual darkening of Angelina's -- afterall, they will be graduating and going out into a world on the brink of war.

anywho... not sure where that tangent came from, but I'm glad you liked the poker game!! It was a lot of fun to write. Lee is the bomb, end of story and sort of carried that scene. :) Ron... I really love his character, so any chance I get to include him is a good one.

Honestly, I don't think I could make it through a george chapter without a mention of fred -- he was too big a part of his life not to. However, I do hope that as george's chapters have progressed that the context in which fred appears is progressing as George learns to accept and ultimately live with his grief.

And Georgelina scene. Gah. I really dread writing any sort of physical romance (why exactly I set out to write a romance novel is beyond me). You know how sometimes you read a romantic scene and it just feels forced and awkward -- that is my biggest fear with these scenes. I feel like I'm intruding, but am trying not to intrude... and hoping that it all comes out sounding legit. lolol. Anyway, I'm glad that you enjoyed their scene and that it wasn't too awful.

Yayy for Georgelina shippers. We, in my most humble opinion, rock. :) Thank you so much for your review and all your enthusiasm and support.
