Review #1, by maskedmuggle Chill and Cheer

24th April 2011:
Hello! :D

Good work on WTEB! :D Here's a review for you! :D
Oh, I loved this! Seriously, a really enjoyable one-shot to read! :D At first I thought it was Hermione/George, but then when you revealed it was Hermione/Charlie I thought that was even more brilliant! :D

Great plot! A day with the Weasleys is always enjoyable to read, and this was no different. Your writing was great, and I loved the little prank and the snow scene outside was so perfect!

Hermione/Charlie.. that really does have great possibility, and the kiss was well written! - The dialogue too, I thought, was so in character! :)

Lovely story! :)

Author's Response: Hi!

Thanks for the really nice review and I'm so sorry for replying so late. I did read it a while ago but then I didn't reply at once and didn't log in to my author account for a while so I forgot I had unanswered reviews.

I'm glad you liked the story. It was really enjoyable to write too. I haven't really written that much Hermione before and was surprised at how easily I got into her mind. I'm happy it seemed right. Hermione/Charlie is one of my favourite ships and especially in the could-have-happened cathegory. And Charlie of course is... *swoons*

I'm happy you found the right Weasley mood too in this. I love to read about times in the Burrow and I'm glad if I could create a moment like that for someone else too.

Thanks again for the review! Reading it again made me feel so great! :)

Hi! Here for your Valentine's Day gift :D Sorry it's taken me so long to get to it, but I'm here now!

Hermione & Charlie, huh? I never pictured them together at all, to be honest, but the way you set it up was very convincing. ;) I always thought that Charlie might be too old for her, but I was never good with remembering the ages of the Weasley children, except for Ron & Ginny since they're one year apart. xD

Your writing style flows so wonderfully & it's really pleasing to read! I liked this a lot - you capture the holiday spirit quite nicely :) And I'm glad that Hermione managed to loosen up after all and pull a prank, but nothing too grand like the ones Fred & George pulled off, you know? Laughing powder was a good idea for a mild prank :D

Overall very nice job! You might see a few more reviews from me soon!!! ;D

Author's Response: I think my interest for this pairing was born a little before DH was released as I thought about which pairings I ideally wanted to happen. Ron/Hermione is all right and it's sweet in the books, but it still wasn't quite my first choise. Charlie also needed someone and Tonks who could have been a possibility was already taken. So that's Hermione/Charlie then. Somehow I really can see them together. Charlie is about seven years older than the trio so that's not even as much as the age gap in Remus/Tonks I think. I'm glad you liked the pairing here though.

I'm happy you thought it flows well and is easy to read. This was a lot of fun to write and I was surprised how easy it felt to write Hermione and I hope it sounded like her too.

Thanks for the lovely review! :)

Review #3, by long_live_luna_bellatrix Chill and Cheer

30th December 2010:
What a sweet Christmas story! I'll admit it, I skipped right over the summary, and so I spent some time trying to figure out if this was Hermione/George or Hermione/Charlie. I was sure it was George, and of course when I found I was wrong I had to go back and re-read the earlier bits. Unsurprisingly, I did find some subtle hints at C/H before the end. So you fooled me. :P You might even want to edit the summary, mentioning both George and Charlie but not mentioning which one is in the pairing. It might raise more readers' curiosity.

On the whole, a lovely read. I liked little Teddy, who was always out of it, and the laughing powder idea in general. It was a sweet wintery fic, and got me in a holiday mood all over again. The mention of Harry acting like Dumbledore, and of Hermione feeling like she almost but not entirely belonged were also good.

In this sentence, it read a little confusingly:
"George had told her that it was enough so anyone wouldn't laugh for too long for it to be funny, but still get a dose for some minutes of laughter even with it being blended into the tea." --> I feel like it was worded oddly, maybe you meant for it too say that it wouldn't last too long to be mean? I couldn't quite tell.

Overall, a delightful story. I really enjoyed it, and it was nice not knowing what the ship would be in the end.

Author's Response: I'm actually happy you mentioned your thoughts about the summary. I was thinking about it a lot, wondering if I should put the C/H in it. In a way I would like to have it as a surprise for the readers, but then on the other hand I was afraid that people wouldn't be so happy about the surprise as it is quite an unusual pairing. And then there's the point that I could perhaps get readers who actually look for that pairing by having it in the summary. But you know now I'm rethinking it again. At least if I mention both George and Charlie in the summary and as characters, the readers can't complain, right? I might change it.

Um yeah that sentence sounds a little long and confusing now that you mention it. I will have to think about how to say it better. This isn't betaed at least yet, so I'm happy about people pointing out things like that.

I'm glad you liked the story! It was a lot of fun to write it too!

That was positively awesome! Such a wonderful Christmas-y one-shot - it put a large smile on my face. :)))

I like the idea that George persuades Hermione to do a prank very much - she really needs to loosen a bit. :) And Hermione/Charlie is a pretty offbeat couple, I've never thought about it, but I think you did it sweetly. I really enjoyed their little moments together. :)) Actually, I think I may try to find some more fics of them. D'awww... that scene in the snow just melted me, it was precious. :)))

All in all, an excellent one-shot! It was funny, it was well-written and it was infinitely sweet. Wonderful read for the holidays :)))

Author's Response: Your review put such a large smile on my face! I'm happy you liked it and also that you chose to read and review this one of my stories as it doesn't yet have many reviews!

I haven't actually read that many Hermione/Charlie fics myself either, more talked and thought about it. Though there are some really good ones out there. But it's one of my favourite pairings anyhow.

Once again, thank you for the lovely review!

Loved it...it needs an epilogue...maybe 10 years down the track when they are telling this story to their kids xx

Author's Response: Thank you for reviewing! I'm happy you liked the story! Actually I would like to write something more Charlie/Hermione sometime and something relating to this could be a good idea. :)
