Love the comment that George is the one of Molly's children who's most retained his boyish charm. I can totally imagine George never fully growing up.

That must be scary, to think more time has passed since Fred has died than they spent together.

OK, this fic has now brought tears to my eyes when George talks about how he can no longer fully remember Fred's voice.

Everybody in the wizarding world seems to get so much into a few years really. So many people died young and yet did more than most people do in a full lifetime. I know it's 'cause the books are sort of aimed at children and at 12, you believe you'll have so much life experience by 20, but still.

Pancakes with chocolate chips in them? I've heard of them before, but I'm not sure how they'd work. Pancakes in my mind should be eaten covered in lemon and sugar!

It's not often a fanfic reduces me to tears, but this did. And I don't usually even cry over death. Though mind you, it's not exactly the death that made me cry so much as the idea of moving on and losing the memory of somebody who was so important in your life.

Author's Response: I was so shocked to see a review come up for this story! I think it's the first thing I posted here and it's been a long time since someone read it. Thank you very much for giving it some love.

Somehow, I just don't see George ever really growing up. Not that I think he'd be childish - I just don't see him letting life make him too serious. He'd keep that part of him that liked to have fun and make people laugh.

That thought of George getting to the point where he had lived longer without Fred than with him is what spurred this whole story. It just seemed so heartbreakingly tragic. Because in the books, they are so inseparable and bound together each others best friend. It made me wonder how different it would be to go from being a twin to being alone.

Sorry about the tears. Really I am. But I am honored to have triggered an emotional reaction by my silly little story here.

And isn't that why death is sad? Not for the person who is dead but for the ones left behind to move on without them.

Thank you again so much for reading! It made my day!
