Hi lovely, it's Raine from the forums with your review finally! I do apologise for the wait -- school has been getting the better of me lately, but I'm determined not to drown in it like last year. Anyway, on to the review! I took the time to re-read the first two chapters as well, mostly for the sake of remembering what was going on in the story, which is another reason why I didn't get to this as soon as I should have, but one thing I want to add is that your writing is as amazing as I remembered!

I just think the whole idea of Molly being in denial about Lucy's death is really interesting -- while I have suffered through a few family members' deaths as well, I never remember feeling like Molly does, but I suppose that's what happens when someone as close to you as a sibling dies. You really capture her emotions (I'd call it grief, but...) very well, as well as her love for her sister and I especially liked how she ended up associating a lot of things with Lucy, as I think it's something we all would do. I didn't think how she was acting was overdramatic at all and instead very realistic for someone going through something like that. A thing that really stood out to me was how you pointed out the weird atmosphere in the air, the feeling something was missing -- that really tugged at my heartstrings right there, my gosh, and if I had been Molly noticing that would probably have been the point I realised that, yes, she's gone and she's dead and we all know it.

There's just something about your writing here that's really nice to read -- there isn't too much of everything and the flow is just right and it kept my interest up right to the end. I thought the characterisation was great, as well, even though I obviously can't say anything about it being canon, it's just the way everyone acted was very Weasley-ish, if that makes sense? I'm very intrigued by the ending of the chapter -- I definitely feel like this is going somewhere great, so well done! It was a lovely read, so thank you for requesting :D

Author's Response: Hey! Not to worry! Thank you for taking the time to review at all! Good luck with your school work and I hope it doesn't drown you! I know all too well that feeling!

I was trying to draw on my own experience and also other people's experience and seeing how they cope with it. It's strange, in a way, to see how people react to grief. Some like being together, some just need to be alone because they don't think anyone else can understand their grief like they do. You hit the mark though when you don't quite call it grief. It's something a bit different then that in my eyes as well. They are mostly emotions, confusing emotions as Molly can't quite see this as actually happening in real life. She still thinks to an extent that this could just be a dream. I suppose she's just dissociating herself from reality. Though there is a part of her that knows and feels how wrong everything is and how much is changing.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments! They were a joy to read and i'm glad you like the writing so much!
