Aw! Loved it! The end made me tear up.
"But here we are, together, counting the days until the laughter behind the Veil is no longer a teasing destiny, but instead our reality"
So beautiful that line... they'll finally be together!
Knowing that you writte this kind of stories, just wanted to recommend you this one: Survivor by atruwriter. You'll not regret it!
(I didn't write it, but I love it)Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed the story, and thanks for quoting that line. It was written so long ago, that sometimes I even forget what I have written! And thanks for the story rec, I'll try to keep it in mind! Report Review
Well, I'll start off by saying that I adored your story. It was very well crafted, and I thought the losses were handled extremely realistically. They didn't get over it in a week, but were still haunted a year on. Realistic. Especially where war is concerned; people are haunted for decades.
The progression of Harry and Hermione's relationship was also very well executed and you handled it brilliantly. It was not done too quickly, nor too slowly. Though, admittedly, I was wishing for Harry to ask her to join him at the start of the "Norway" issue, but I think all readers were.
My favourite parts; the fight in Bill's bedroom after he told them he was leaving; When Harry went into Hermione's bed; all the times Hermione entered Harry's room; The long hug -- you know the one I'm talking about, haha and finally, their fight and the lake.
I also adored this chapter -- more specifically, the talk. It wasn't overdone, or exaggerated, but very good.
I thought the letters were a little cliche, but I suppose that can be overlooked!haha Everything is cliche in HP fandom xP
So, in conclusion to that overly long review, I adored this story and hope you write more H/Hr (I haven't checked if you have, but I sincerly hope you have!lol)
Keep writing this fabulous stuff,
xCNxAuthor's Response: Hi Cailin! Thanks so much for your review! I loved hearing from you, and you should never mind about overly long reviews, because I adore them. (o: I always have overly long replies! Haha!
I'm so glad you liked this story and that it was so well done! It's the first HP fanfic story I ever wrote, and the first writing I ever posted publicly and started trying to learn how to improve my writing. I remember that I wanted it to be really realistic and also the kind of story that was emotional in a close-to-home kind of way. I wanted readers to really understand what the characters were going through.
It's something that's important to me, in my writing. (o:
I'm glad you felt the relationship didn't progress too quickly or slowly. And though I know many may have wanted Harry to ask Hermione to join him in Norway, it just wasn't something Harry could do. It was hurtful to Hermione, but I think Harry did need some time to himself, and probably Hermione did too, even if it was painful, even if neither of them wanted it, exactly. Sometimes what's good for you doesn't always feel good.
I think a lot of your favorite parts are also my favorite parts, too! Hee! I love any scenes with intensity and they are always the most fun for me to read and to write. (o:
As for the letters - I'm not sure, any more, what's considered cliche or not cliche, but it was just what I felt was right for the story, at the time. I'm sure if I edited or re-wrote this now, it would look much different. But I'd like to leave it as is, at least for now. It's a part of my writer's journey. (o:
I'm so glad you enjoyed the story! I do have another H/Hr story on here (in which Ron doesn't die, hehe). It was the first pairing I ever enjoyed in HPFF, and what I originally wrote when I first joined. I always have a soft spot for their relationship though, so even when I write them as fiends, I can't help writing in that special connection between them. I think their friendship (potential relationship? haha) is truly beautiful.
Well, thanks so much for reading and reviewing! Report Review
aw!!! i loveeedd thiss story!! my only question, what was the scar on ron and harry of? like was it any shape or anything? cause didht they have the same scar?Author's Response: Aw, I'm so glad you loved this story! (o: As for the scars... I believe Ron and Hermione both had small scars on their foreheads, similar to Harry's lightning-bold-shaped one, but smaller, and less pronounced.
As for Harry, the scar across his chest and torso had no particular shape, just an ugly winding scar.
This was written before we got all the answers in the last book. So in this story, the scars Ron and Hermione received were from someone stepping into the Avada Kedavra curse to save them - a mark left from the "sacrifice." Only, Harry didn't die (for a second time), instead he received the large, ugly scar on his torso from receiving the Curse.
I don't know if it makes sense, but that's how it was in this story. (o:
