Ah, I msut say, I was a tad surprised finding this story on your Author's page, you always struck me as a dark, scary fic type of person, and this was not. I thoguht oyu did a wonderful job capturing Hermione's insecurities in this little fic...Her questions seemed to bounce off each other in a manner that I recognize as panic. So you've done that well. and the last bit was a reminder of the type of person Hermione is, regardless of how frightened she may be, she'll be loyal enough to her friends to get through it.
Good job! Author's Response: I can write fluff. I do write fluff from time to time. Just...rarely. ;)
Thank you so much for your review! I can only imagine how...panicked someone must be as they're about to walk down the aisle, and I wanted to capture that panic, and I was so glad to see that it worked out.
Thank you so much! Report Review
Interesting and original in that you don't end with Hermione realising that she is definately madly in love with Ron :) I like how you have her decide to do it because she made a promise, it stops the story from being sappy :)Author's Response: Thank you. I'm not a sappy fluffy person, and I don't think Hermione would be either. I enjoy writing the twists on the traditional, thank you for letting me know that my twist went over well. Thank you so much! Report Review
I must say, I have a certain admiration for things like these, where you take a single moment in time and make a whole story out of it. Your descriptions were great, and I love the way you have Hermione think--an overall analyzing balancing act of sorts, teetering back and forth between tentative, anxious pessimism and an almost-optimism, while, of course, being her sorta nerdy self and just throwing in facts, like that thing about the best man.
All in all, an enjoyable read. Kudos.Author's Response: Why thank you quite a lot. It's my favourite thing to do, just take a moment and suspend it. I don't think Hermione is simple enough to just go through with something, she's complex, with complex thoughts. And she has a huge knowledge of random trivia, I'd think. Thank you for liking my characterisation of her! And thank you, more than that for liking my fic! Report Review
That was quite good. It was written very well; the thoughts and emotions you conveyed were very realistic, and the doubts and unnecassary fears one has about love were very true. However, I think it was a bit short. I would have liked to see Hermione fulfill her promise (even though we all knew she would) and perhaps see there was nothing to worry about? Just a thought.Author's Response: Well, it does tie things up as she takes the step forward.But thank you very much for the review. Report Review
I liked that quite much, actually. It's just a nice little, wondering, fleeing moment, and it's thought-provactive too. You did a nice job with it. =)Author's Response: Thank you quite much. ;) I'm sure it races through every brides head as she starts down the aisle. It's not my best, but it was begging to be written.

Is that true Harry steping up? How odd (no making fun of there if it is true!!!) I liked it and it seems like somthing Hermione would do all ways wanting to be right:)Author's Response: it wasn't supposed to be harry stepping up, just a moment of blind panic as shes about to go through with it, wondering if he would be there when she walked down the aisle.

sequel!!PLease!!Author's Response: It's a one shot. It don't get sequels.
Thank you anyway. Report Review
I'm sort of torn in this review. In a way, it needed to be longer to develop their situation and put more of an impact on her decision. But the short, quick sentences is the style that fits her thought process. I don't know. I don't want to say "fluff it up," but maybe throw in a flashback of their engagement or end more with love, as opposed to obligation. Very enjoyable none the less. Cheers.Author's Response: It was supposed to be a quick moment in time, a sudden "Oh my god, am I ready for this?" sort of thing as she is about to step out, but thank you. I can see where you want it to be longer, but long just ain't my thing. Report Review
