I haven't written a review before, so I'm not really sure what I'm supposed to say, but I'll give it a try! This chapter was absolutely beautifully written. When things are written from the point of view of a dead person, it's often overbearing and unrealistic.
It has a perfect balance of nostalgia and humour, and I definitely teared up while reading it. I think you said a while back that English wasn't your first language? If that's the case, I'm completely floored by your mastery of the language, your writing is so eloquent and natural!
Basically, I adore you for taking on such a massive task (19 years!!), but I think of all the fanfic writers out there, you are by far the most capable of doing so.
The way you portray your characters is so incredibly close to canon that I know I'll have difficulty separating your stories from the actualy HP stories in my head.
All in all, I just wanted to say a massive thank you for putting so much of your time and effort and heart into this story, I imagine it must be frustrating at times but it is so worth it. This is the best fanfic I've read, and I'm so incredibly glad I stumbled across it!!

Author's Response: Well, you definitely did well in writing a review... This has honestly made my day. I can't even explain to you how happy I am that you liked this chapter so much. I had my doubts about it at first, because I agree that it can be both overbearing and unrealistic when you write from the P.O.V. of a dead person.

I am very relieved to hear that you thought this wasn't like that, though! I tried to add a little humour (it is Fred after all) and I'm so happy to hear that it seems to have worked. You're right about English not being my first language, but I have studied it quite a lot. Thank you so much for saying those kind things, it really warms my heart!!

Characterization is something that's very important to me, so I'm so pleased to hear that you think it's alright in this story! I'm quite a canon freak, haha ;)

If it ever is frustrating and hard (which I admit I can be and probably will be, as it's such a huge and long story), reviews like yours make up for it by far. I am definitely the one who should be thanking you for all of the kindness, support and encouragement that was included in this review. I feel like I can't thank you enough, though. Just know that you've truly made my day, and I'm so happy that you're enjoying this story so much. Thank you!!!
