Hiya! Really late review swap... sorry about that. Real life kind of took over there for a little while.

This was really sad, but in a really beautiful way. The way you portrayed each character's grief was, to me, very true to their canon personalities. Molly would be making everyone food or hot beverages; George would be trying to hold on to anything that would have to do with Fred; Percy would be feeling immeasurably guilty; and Ginny would be in complete shock.

And the fact that she thought that Harry would want to leave her is heartbreaking. I'm glad he made her see reason and told her about him taking the Marauders Map out and looking at her dot. I think she really needed to hear that, and it was just a really sweet moment.

This entire chapter was just so nicely written and I totally agree that Fred would have wanted everyone to be wearing bright colours at his funeral, to celebrate his life instead of his death. It was a really cool thing to add and I think it made everything that much more real and true, and in essence, more beautiful.

This was a really sad introductory chapter, but I'm really excited to read further. You've done a great job with this!
Lo:)

Author's Response: Hello! No worries, I totally understand :)

I'm so glad you thought it stayed true to their characters :) That's really the top priority for me as I write this story, so I'm very glad you thought that was done well.

I'm glad that you thought Harry and Ginnny's relationship played out well in this chapter. I really felt as though there would be some uncertainty in their relationship at first. But I couldn't stand keeping them apart for too long. I'm so glad you thought the Marauder's Map was a good touch. I loved when he did that in Deathly Hallows and I thought it would be a perfect thing for him to tell her in that moment. I agree, it was just what she needed to hear. Silly girl, thinking Harry didn't care about her :(

I'm so so glad you liked it and I am so touched by your kind words! I love the idea that bringing in the bright colours made the scene more real and beautiful :)

I really cannot thank you enough for your kind and inspiring words! And thanks so much for reading on!!
