Review:1917farmgirl says:
Not fair. So very much not fair.

You didn't mention when I started this story that it was about THAT event! I have policies about reading about THAT event - ie, I don't do it. Not very often.

But, by the time I found out, it was too late. I was sucked in.

And now I'm sitting here crying like a weirdo, because it doesn't matter how many years have gone by since I first read THAT event, I'm still not over it.

Seriously though, this was so hard for me to read. Probably because you nailed my Fred and George, and not a lot of people can do that. You described their differences, and their sameness, EXACTLY how they are in my head, and my stories, and my cherished Harry Potter books on the shelf.

A George without a Fred...it just hurts. I will never forgive JKR for this. I just can't.

Your writing was flawless and flowed and I could just feel the pain tearing George apart here. So, while I'm mad at you that I'm now an emotional wreck, thank you for posting and sharing this.

Author's Response: Oh Farmgirl, I'm sorry! I didn't mean to make you sad! Well, actually, with the subject matter of this sorry I suppose I did. And I completely understand wanting to steer clear of The Event; it just breaks my heart to think about. But regardless, I'm so happy that it spoke to you.

I was very, very worried about my portrayal of George. I don't know what it was; I guess since we never really see him living in his head in the books, it felt almost wrong to write him in such an introspective moment. But it means the world to me that you thought I got the twins' relationship right, especially because I know what a Fred and George lover you are :) Coming from you, that's a high compliment.

These reviews have been so wonderful! I'm sorry I didn't respond very quickly, but I loved getting them. I have another installment planned for this, and I'll be sure to let you know when it's up :)
