Review #1, by Marshal/Scooterbug8515 Goodbye

4th April 2017:
Such a sad piece! It is always sad reading about George talking to Fred after he is gone. I love how you addressed everyone in this story not just family but Harry and Angelina as well. It is sweet that George writes everything down in a letter to deal with his emotions and try to cope with the lost of not just his brother but his twin.

I thought it was funny and cute your mention of the picture Molly has particularly the 'mom logic' two ears? Fred! That made me smile. I think it is good to put in some humor in the middle of a sad story it helps to lighten the mood and aid the reader.

I am also intrigued by the idea that you have Charlie having a thing for Tonks. In some ways that shouldn't surprise me as his siblings wanted him and Tonks to get together and them going to school together, it wouldn't be surprising that they did date in school but still to make it fact so to speak is interesting. It makes you feel for Charlie though, poor bloke.

With the Mariah Carey quote, is that something you are having George write/say or was that just kind of a nice concluding moment for the story. It works nicely and I like using quotes occiasionally in my writing too. Anyway nice job here on this story!

Here for Slytherin.

Wow, this was so heartbreaking, am not drowning in a pool of tears right now, there's just something in my eye. No, but seriously, this was so, so sad. You portrayed George's grief in a very raw and real manner. The emotions were seeping through the words as the writing was so detailed and the imagery really surreal. I loved the writing style itself, like how George is "talking to" Fred and telling him all these things about how much everyone misses him and what they're doing before coming to himself in the end. The inclusion of everyone from Auntie Muriel to Angelina was brilliant. Little bits of this, despite it being such a sad story, drew little smiles out of me too - very fred and george like moments - for instance when he is talking about all the good times they have had, all the pranks they have played, from turning ginny's hair blue to pranking umbridge and snape. It was very much in character.

That bit about growing old together made me cry the hardest. The only time they got to see each other with white beards was when they crossed the age line and that is so not fair. I wish Fred hadn't died. *wails* But pulling myself together, I must say this was very well thought out and extremely well-written. You knew exactly which moments to juice out and what bits to focus on to tug at the right heartstrings. George's grief, his pain, his pride for his brother towards the end and the lovely note this ended on - bittersweet despite the pain - was nicely done. I really liked reading it and it made me oh so emotional. Beautiful.

11th July 2013:
This. This is probably the most emotion-packed George loves Fred story I have ever read. It's so sweet and deep and I LOVED IT. Keep up the good work. I hope you write more great pieces like this one. Ten points for Gryffindor~

Author's Response: This one-shot was definitely hard to write, but I felt like it *had* to be done; Fred and George are two of my favourite Potter characters and I was devastated when Fred died. Thanks for reviewing. :)

25th January 2010:
It was great! And so sad at the same time. I felt like crying. I thought the exact same thing when I was reading the seventh book--how George would be missing his "other half" without Fred. You're a great writer! :)

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I cried when writing it, I was GUTTED when Fred died in DH so it was a bit emotional to write! Thanks for reviewing!

This was REALLY excellent. You managed to convey what G was probably feeling, how others may handle it, without going over the top or rediculous.

Well done

Author's Response: Thanks for the review! :)

26th September 2007:
I am seriously crying right now. This was so beautiful. I'm almost disgusted that Jo killed Fred. . . I don't know if I can forgive her for it. But, that aside, this was a beautiful, beautiful piece. Congrats on getting Recommended Author, I had it too, back in February. Definitely adding to my favorites, and 10,000 x pi/10

Author's Response: I must say, the one downer in DH was the fact that she killed Fred, Remus and Tonks. :( Thank you ever so much for your review, and I'm really glad that you like it so much :D

Review #12, by Resplendence Goodbye

3rd August 2007:
I don't really think I have words to express how this story makes me feel. Everything's kind of been said already, I think. This was a bittersweet monologue from George to Fred, and I devoured every last word, even though it made my cry.

Thanks for doing justice to Fred's death, and for putting some closure on a story that I thought JKR kind of left hanging.



Author's Response: I always loved Fred as a character myself, and found it hard to accept the fact that JKR had killed him. That's why I decided to write this, and it took a few goes, but I'm finally pleased with the outcome. I'm so touched that you feel so strongly about the story, and thank you so much for reviewing.

This is the only story I've ever read on here that had me actually crying-not just watery eyes, actual tears rolling down my cheeks. It was just so sad! I don't have an account on her yet, but when I actually do get one, this story is going on my favorites list. It was beautifully written...wonderful job. Oh God, I think I'm gonna start crying again lol 10/10

Author's Response: Thank you ever so much, your praise really means a lot to me. It took me an age to finally get the story right, and I'm really pleased with it. Thanks for reviewing!
