Oh George :-( You've written his pain and loss so well, it's just heartbreaking to read.
Youre descriptions are so vivid that it's almost like I can feel what George does.
And when he went into a rage and stopped thinking I really liked how you called him 'a machine' because he became so angry. And when he says that his sadness is blissfully gone and feels fantastic it makes me wonder just how much he's going to 'break' when it's gone.

Dark! This isn't the George we know and love, but then he wouldn't be, would he? I found this piece quite shocking, and yet strangely not out of character. I love how you really explore the pain he'd be feeling at this point; not just by mentioning his emotions, but by delving into exactly why it would feel like such a loss, and all the little, impossibly sad things that he would have to mourn along with his brother.

Like I said, not the George I generally like to read, but somehow George nonetheless - brave to the point of recklessness, and loving to the point of violence. Dark George, grieving George, but somehow still George. Really good writing, that.

You know, I've read a lot of George fics for this collab but this is the first one that has him letting go of the grief, even if it's only momentary, and fighting on regardless. And you know what? I like it. It's refreshing. There is so much grief in this battle, in this collab, that to find a character taking heart from tragedy is a really nice change. I think you've got him absolutely in character, but it's just a really different tack and it works really well. Great job!

cheers, Mel

This was a great George-trying-to-cope-with-Fred's-death fic. (Hey, I haven't got anything else to call it! :P) I've read quite a few of them, and honestly, even though the situation he's in now is the one that I absolutely hate to think about, they never get old. Yours is absolutely fantastic. George's thoughts about how Fred was the funny one are so sad...but they're written exceptionally well. I loved the part where he's musing about how he wasn't even this sad when he thought his father was dead...it comes across as brutal, but it's also so brutally honest and true. And then where he's thinking about how the Death Eaters don't have the same feelings that he does? It was so powerful. I was so happy for him by the time he was able to shut his mind off for at least a little while and start going after the Death Eaters.

You characterized George perfectly, this was a great piece. :)

How heartbreaking. Wow. That was really something. I quite liked the way you conveyed all the emotions that George was feeling for the loss of his twin brother. I think it's really interesting how we all interpret this scene differently and your story is no exception to that. The process of how George went from utterly hopeless and defeated to determined and ready to fight was a great sequence of emotions. You did very well.

Really well written! Loved the perspective from George. The characterisation was definitely great. I've always felt it's so sad that Fred dies. I can imagine George breaking down and thinking that all is lost. So I love the line "It's all you now George. Go get 'em" It's so Fred. And I love how George then is like 'a machine', avenging his brother's death. You've expressed how George feels really well. Enjoyed reading this!
