Review #1, by Yuu A Broken Mans Sorrow

13th March 2006:
"Molly Weasley was my soul mate, what do I do when I loose that." You meant 'lose' like in the sense of loss? I am a bit confused about the connotation you want to use here. If it's 'loose' like 'loose strings' it's different. ;) "...Her greatest fear; to loose one of us, even you." Okay, got it. You should fix the word as 'lose'. This was very interesting. I've never read anything like it before. In fact, it's the first time I read a fic from Arthur Weasley's point of view. The bit about Molly sacrificing herself for the ones she loves makes perfect sense. It's sad to see Arthur destroying himself because of Molly, but it seems that everything had happened recently, right? One always hopes that after some time he'll be able to heal, but it's true that if it has just happened only a few days before that's how he would be faring. I liked how he snapped at Percy. Makes me wonder if Percy would really come back to the family if something like that happened. Great fic!

Author's Response: Ah... lose, yeah, that's right! I am so stupid **slaps forhead** Thank you for the great review... I am really glad you liked it!

Sad, indeed. Not how you would expect a calm character like him to act and that's what I like most about demonstrates the depth of his grief over losing her. Wonderfully done, Hiduras. I apologize for taking so long to get here. You portrayed a grief stricken man wonderfully and the exchange with Percy was excellent. Well done!

Author's Response: No worries! I am really glad you liked it... It has kind of grown on me, but I am still debating if it is too short or not... ah well, I don't think I will ever get around to changing it, so it is probably best this way... :) Thank you for giving it a read Linda!

Review #3, by crystal allan A Broken Mans Sorrow

8th February 2006:
This was an incredibly heartrending piece. The emotions that are laced throughout it are very well written. You didn’t try to go over the top with tears and gushing, but you showed Arthur as a ‘man.’ That must sound odd… I’ve noticed that a lot of women don’t tend to write men properly. They write a man’s emotions just as they would a woman’s, their own even. But I think you did very well in getting into Arthur’s psyche there. He seemed to be masking his hurt and pain through anger, and I thought that was very fitting.

I liked the first person perspective you chose to use here. It added to the story on a whole and I think helped the reader to understand Arthur’s emotions a bit more. Now, I really like that you made him drink. For my own story I put a lot of thought into whether or not he would do it. I came to the conclusion that after such a loss, he would be looking for some form of escape even though he knew it wouldn’t help in the long run. Very good characterization there ^_^

Author's Response: Thank you for yet another wonderfull review... I am really having trouble deciding if I am perfectly happy with this fic, or not... maybe I'll do a small re-write at some point... somehow it seems too short... Well, thanks for reviewing, you always brighten my day... but you knoe that bye now!

wow ... that was amazing. i loved it. the pure, raw emotions truly came out in this. to think of how Arthur would react if he lost Molly is a wonderful angle to look at. i loved every word this. it left me speechless. how much more can i ramble on about how wonderful of a piece it is when you already know that yourself? great job. it was in so in canon, i believed that JKR herself would have been beaming with pride and joy. this is going under my favs. much love! ;) ~nomikkin

Author's Response: Wow... totally blushing here... Thank you for the kind review I am really glad you liked it.

Oh, that's so sad, Heidi. You went for the sad road, where I went for the happiness. That competition was so close, just like it should be. You're a great author and it shows here. Thank you for competing against me. :) Great story!

Author's Response: Thank you...
I am glad you liked it, and yeah, I went for the sad road... but I guess that is just my "thing". -- Heidi
