i like it:) are you going to continue the story?

Author's Response: Unfortunately, no. It was really hard to write this one shot already. Another chapter would overkill this strained plot already. Sorry ^^;

*gets shivers* ....and you think "Echo" is better than this?! Girl, you need to put the Smirnoff down (*wink*). This had so much emotion, vibrant visuals and stunning tension. This is a heck of a lot better than "Echo", trust me. Mine is nothing compared to this. I'm truly amazed--this is really good. Brillant. Amazing. Every other word of praise that's escaped my mind right now. This deserves a LOT more reviews. Bravo, IchigoPan. Bravo.

Author's Response: Hahahah I haven't touched a Smirnoff in months! Honest! *Hides six pack under desk* I think I could have done better in the action sequences of the story but I was more fixated on the emotional part to keep true to the lyrics by this band. But thank you for the praise even though I don't deserve it.

Review #3, by sweetgrl1988 Down Towards the Healing

11th March 2006:
great one-shot! i love how you emphasized harry's emotions in this rather than actions. but what im not too fond of are the ships: h/g and r/hr...but other than that this was great

Author's Response: Yeah njhill22 wasn't too pleased with Ginny being in there. However, I wanted to keep true to JKR's HBP storyline. So I had to follow that structure with this horrendous one-shot. I felt like doing more of an emotional thing rather than the action stuff all my readers are used to reading from me. But I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Review #4, by njhill22 Down Towards the Healing

I liked how you described his emotions throughout this whole thing...it almost makes up for the fact that he's pining after Ginny. Almost. But you know my biases, so naturally you know that this overall does not sit well with me because of them. But, if you take out that one contributing factor, that third annoying variable if you will, well done =)

Author's Response: Hahahah yes Ginny is that little thorn in your bum after all. Eh I think I could've done better with this one-shot. Like Summerfrost said, I reiterated the themes to the point it was redundant. Yes your biases are your best friends hahahah.

Review #6, by SummerFrost Down Towards the Healing

5th March 2006:
Hm, I have mixed feelings about this actually. In one-shots especially, I find that it is important to get a large amount of info and feeling to the readers in a short time period. In this one-shot/song-fic all you've done is told us what we already know and that makes it alittle dull. I thought it could have been better if there was some hysteria put in there if you know what I mean. Lol, some exclamation marks! Thats what I, personally, love about the one-shots I've read. They've all got some hysteria in them...Some "humph" if you will. All you've really done is give us what we already know in a very dull manner in the sense of Harrys feelings. Am I being too harsh?! Because if I am you can give me a whack over the head!! Also, the song. I liked it...I should listen to it sometime. But it felt like it wasn't there at all in the story. It just felt alittle unnecessary. However, there were some parts that I really enjoyed and it shows how much your writing has improved description wise. I really loved the description of the wedding as well as whenever you desribed the sun. You did an exceptional job with those two things and I really enjoyed those parts. As well as described the forestry; that was done well too but especially the sun and the wedding. Those parts I loved fully and completely! :D

Author's Response: Hm, I can see which parts seemed dull, like the recap of Dumbledore's death and the whole she-bang. Not my best, I admit. And trust me, you are not being harsh at all! I wanted to tone down the hysteria and just zone into Harry's state of mind while traveling alone to accompany the lyrics. It wasn't as dark as I wanted it to be and I admit I was literally squeezing each word out by force (something completely NOT recommended!). But eh, at least it was something I tried. Thanks for the review. I always love to hear from you.
