Review #1, by ginnypotter242 My Journey On...

11th July 2015:
Oh, Fred! I think his death was one of the worst in the series- I cried my eyes out when I read it the first time! This was a lovely way of showing what happened after he died though! I like that it was Lily that came out to greet him- it was a good parallel with Molly and Harry and Lily and Fred.

Fred meeting the Dumbledore's was so cool! I liked his thoughts as he was wandering through the train- about not ageing, clothes not changing (which really sucks for some people. Fred will be in tattered, dirty clothes for the rest of his...err death). The fact that his mind kept going to George was so incredibly heartbreaking- because it's one thing for us to see George lose his twin, and that's sad enough (seriously. Sad enough. No need to elaborate on that!) but to see Fred losing his twin brother- and he can watch him in the pensieve just hurts all the more.

That being said, I love the pensieve idea! I love the idea that the people who died can look down and see what's going on in the world of the living. I think it's only fair that people like Lily and James (and Remus and Tonks) should be able to watch their children grow up, since they can't actually be there.

The note at the end! That was so sweet, and a perfect touch with the wording. Molly has looked out for Harry all these years, and I love that Lily said she would do the same for Fred. That's a really good parallel there!

Ugh. Fred stories make me cry. It's so unfair! :( You did a great job writing this though, it was a very good story!

Author's Response: Hi!

I applaud you for reading this, since it's an old piece of writing now.

Fred, I agree totally!! I bawled my eyes out, poor George, poor Molly and all the Weasley's. I can definitely see a parallel of Molly looking after Harry, so of course Lily would do the same to Fred.

At least he had clothes on :p Who knows what might have happened otherwise. Haha, this is just a bundle of sadness I know.

I mean we've seen the pensieve been used for memories, so why not looking into the real world. But yes it makes me happy that Remus and Tonks could watch Teddy grow up.

*hands tissues*

Thanks, so much for reading and reviewing!!

Review #2, by alicia and anne My Journey On...

28th December 2014:
Oh no! I'm already so sad! Don't do this to me! Don't break my heart! I can't take this, I can't take him dying and being met by Lily.

OOo I love the idea of them being able to wait in the carriage instead of going on. letting them wait for their family.

Aw Luna is so much like her mother and the Dumbledores are waiting for Aberforth!

Haha only Fred could make a joke like that :P

OMG! Even though I knew it couldn't be Harry yet, I was still so scared that it was him haha.

Ok, I know I should have been sad again that Remus died, but I'm so happy that he's finally with the other Marauders.

Aw no! No you've killed me! I am a mushy ball of emotion and tears! You just had to throw in that last part didn't you? I don't know if I'll ever be able to get over that!

Brilliant! Absolutely brilliant!!

Author's Response: Tammi hi!

Sorry it's taken so long to reply. Busy, busy, busy!

I loved writing this one shot, despite the tears I had when doing so. I wanted them all to be there and since the actual kings cross scene in the film, something clicked in my head and gave me the idea.

The Marauders are reunited once more, hooray!

Haha, I know. Right in the feels.

Thanks so much Tammi *hugs*

Review #5, by Maelody My Journey On...

7th March 2014:
Awww, this is so sweet, and so sad! I wish there was more George, but seeing a story between Fred and his mother was sweet as well.

I really like how you picture this limbo/heaven type place. Where you can choose to stay and wait for your family, and watch them, and even send them little notes when the time comes. It's sad that they will never age, but what happens when they move on? Do they just "die". No soul, no nothing left, or is that when they move to heaven? If so, I'd like to imagine that they get to see each other the way the want to see the other, and time would move faster for them so their loved ones would continue to join them. Though it'd be sad to know they waited all that time xD.

Awww, never have I wished a short life on George until now! I don't want him to be 90 when Fred is still 20! That's so depressing! Just like Harry being older than his parents! I'd cry! :'(

This was a really sweet, unique little one-shot, and I'm definitely reading the sequel you have of it! :D

Great job, dear! :D


Author's Response: Hi Mae,

Thank you! It's bitter sweet really.

My inspiration was sort of from when Harry and Dumbledore are there in Deathly Hallows and Harry thinks he's dead. When they move on they'd go to heaven, so yes they would still see each other and the time would go faster than normal.

It's so sad thinking of them separated because there literally is no Weasley twins, without Fred. Otherwise it's just George. And James and Lily being older than Harry, it's not right and it seems weird. But to me that's how it works there at 'Kings Cross'.

Thank you for reading and reviewing!

Review #6, by Celtic_Dreamer7 My Journey On...

6th March 2013:
I absolutely adored this! This piece was so touching in the sense that Fred got to meet up with other friends/family who had passed on. I loved the inclusion of Snape, so sad when he passed :(

I didn't see any misspelled words or grammatical errors. The ending was beautiful with the note between mothers. A great one shot that I'm glad I read and glad that you wrote. Congrats on such a moving piece.


Author's Response: Hello :)

I'm glad you liked it! I bawled like a baby when Snape died and I wanted Fred to see he wasn't the evil guy, but a good one.

Thank you for reading and reviewing!!!

Review #7, by PhoenixPulse My Journey On...

15th July 2012:
Oh the words I could say to describe this feeling after I read this. I felt sad, but at the same time, I could feel myself smiling. The ending had me tear up a bit as well because it was so sweet, bitter in a way because Fred's dead and his family won't see him until they pass on, but it was sweet to see Lily take over as a "maternal mother" in the afterlife.

There were little grammar mistakes along the way that tripped me up a bit, but it was nothing too critical, just simple mistakes we tend to overlook.

Overall, it was great! Thank you for sharing your piece with us all.

Author's Response: Aww thank you :D xx I'm glad you liked it!

Review #10, by luvdobby26 My Journey On...

10th July 2012:
Sophie, I am in tears! So sorry for the lateness, but I'm here now.
Honestly, I'm trying not to cry cos I'm in the kitchen with my mum, and if I burst into tears, it would look a little weird, but hey ho.
Anyhoo, let's go over things:

Flow- The flow was excellent most of the way through, I just noticed at some points it jummped around a little, but I'm sure if you read over it you could fix some of that :)

Plot - The plot is fantastic! When I first strted to read this, I thought it was going to be like another fic I'd read about going on a train when you die and then going to heaven etc. but it wasn't. I notice Wormtail there, I liked how you didn't say who he was and how he was sitting alone. Also, I liked how the description you gave of him meant he could only be one person, so we're able to guess, but not be told.
I love how you brought Snape him and how you said please don't be Harry, we need him, or something like this.
I love the end, that's the bit I cried at most. The letter is just heartbreaking! I honestly love this one-shot!

Desription - The descriptions were really good, although, I think you could have included some more. You might want to look over some of it and see where you can add some. But over all, I think you did a good job with describing.

Charcterisation - This was really good, although sometimes I think you came out of their characters. Lily was excellent btw, she was so kind and caring, just as Harry's mother has been described as. You made me miss them all so much more! Why did they have to die?? I want them back! Especially Lily and James, Harry needs his parents! :(
Anyway, the charcters were good but some were a bit off.

Dialogue - The dialogue was really good, although I think some of the things weren't really like something they would say, but ir's not that noticable. :)

Emotions - You did a great job with the emotions, I could really feel what Fred was feeling, and how it would be to be in that situation. But I suppose we'll all be in that situation at the end of our lives...

Writing - The writing was really good. Slightly messy here and there, but mostly a clean read :)

Grammar - I noticed quite a lot of mistakes, but I'm sure that if you read it over a few times, you'll be able to fix them :)

Overall - Overall, this was an amzing one-shot that I have added to favourites. I would happily read it again and I'll be telling all my friends about it and fource them to read it :) And, it made me cry, I love stories that do that :) xx

Author's Response: heya and don't worry bout the lateness.

Sorry for making you cry.

Thanks for the review. I'm waiting for it be re validated because I've edited it.
Your the secnond person to recognise wormtail Yay :)

Review #11, by Aether My Journey On...

7th July 2012:
Hi, it's Aether from the forums here with your requested review. This one-shot is absolutely beautifully written, and a really great idea. It's actually everything I think a one-shot should be. I love how you stick with Fred's point of view, and we get to see the final battle from the perspective of the people who have died throughout the HP books. Really, really excellent job!

I saw some grammatical errors that I think could be fixed by a couple careful read-throughs. Here are a few:

" Well, I think so. Last time I saw her she was fighting fit and duelling some death eaters." smiled, "That's my girl, as long as she's ok."

>It seems like something just got cut out of that sentence.

"I watched the night that we moved Harry, I watched as Snape raised his wand at the death eater in front of him, he was nowhere near George or Remus."

>This sentence isn't a proper sentence. Try breaking it up into two or three sentences, or connect phrases with commas, parallel phrasing, and conjunctions.

"She seemed to understand and I watched her right a note and when she was done she folded it carefully."

>It's just a typo, but it's the kind of thing I have trouble catching on my own, so I thought I'd point it out. 'right' should be 'write.' Also, you should again pay attention to your sentences. If you have two independent phrases, separate them with a conjunction and a comma. If you have three independent phrases, you're going to have to split the sentence up into two or three sentences. Otherwise, it becomes a bit of a mouthful. Also, nitpicky people like me twitch when we see such things, which messes with flow. ;)

I love how you've defined the whole afterlife for the sake of this one-shot. You've really thought about everything: from the clothes they wear, to why they're all on the train. I also feel like you characterize Lily very well. The part at the end where she makes contact with Molly is so sweet and sad. I love it.

I was a little confused about some things, but they may not matter so much. I was under the impression (from the seventh book scene where Harry dies and meets Dumbledore) that the train station was a manifestation of Harry's consciousness. Also, Harry appeared there naked, not clothed. I figure it must just be different with Fred though, since he's not a Horocrux. Lastly, if the dead can communicate with the living, why haven't James and Lily communicated with Harry?

Great job! I really enjoyed this fanfic. You do a great job of getting to all the characters (even Pettigrew!), and your level of description is great. I feel that you could fix a few sentences to improve the flow of the story, but other than that, great job! I enjoyed reading this. Thanks for requesting! :) 10/10


Author's Response: Hey thanks so much for reviewing :D

Thanks I didn't notice them but will change them when I edit to add the CI.

Even though it was Harry's consciousness I think that after they all die each of them would see/go to the place. Maybe because Harry wasn't actually dead he still arrived in the same place just on a different platform.

Again with the clothing thing - I think because Harry wasn't dead there was no need for the clothes as he wasn't stopping there. In the film he was clothed instead of naked.

When writing this, in my head the dead had one last chance of saying goodbye to their loved one(s) whether it be right after they died or years later.
I think that when Harry called James and Lily using the stone that was their final contact and I think they would have a feeling it would have happend which is why they waited.

I didn't think anyone noticed Pettigrew (go you!)

Thanks again :D

Aww :) this is so sweet- I love the bit at the end where Lily contacts Molly . I think it's really delicately written and even though it's sort of sad, it ties up the loose ends with the dead characters that jk never did. It's also a nice idea, how they're all waiting for their loved ones :)

Author's Response: Aww Thank you :D

Review #14, by FriendofMolly My Journey On...

25th June 2012:
I noticed this while scrolling through the new postings. I have read a few stories that echo this subject. To the next great adventure. It is amazing how different the views are. Yet all are fascinating. My favorite theme is Fred meeting the Marauders. This you have done with style and emotion. I loved how you portrayed each characters. Thank you so much. I'll look forward to your next.
PS When Lily stopped to visit the Dumbledore's you said there were 5 people in the compartment, yet you only introduced us to 3 excluding Albus. So who was the fifth? Not Grindenwald? Please have a followup for this.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review :)

Oops I meant four, I shall have to change that :)
