Review #1, by dreamgazer220 Again

22nd April 2016:
Hiya Gabbie! Here for our review swap.

So, I know this is one of your older pieces, but admittedly I did search a bit on your AP for another fabulous George story to read, and this one did not disappoint!

I think you did an amazing job of capturing George's emotions in this. I've only read a few pieces that focus around George after Fred's death, and it's just a terrible thing that he must be going through, losing his other half. You portrayed that so well, especially with him not being able to go to the joke shop for months because he didn't want to be around the memories. It's also so relatable that George would want to push Angie away instead of cling to her, after the war and after Fred. You just did such a good job with the emotions, as you always do!

I was also a bit confused because it seemed like all of Angelina's friends were worried about her, but when we actually meet her, she seems okay. The ending was super lovely and adorable, it just made me curious as to what she may have been going through leading up to this moment. Perhaps that's motivation to read your "This Is Angelina" fic since you said the two were related.

Other than that, I didn't feel like I needed to read the other piece. And I ALSO wasn't expecting George to have a girlfriend, let alone be someone like Natasha! I'm glad he was trying to move on, but I'm so glad that none of his friends liked her. I wonder if they just knew/thought/wanted him to be with Angie? :)

Their reunion at the end really was sweet and lovely, though. I love that it had just always been her for him. ♥

Your flow, language, and dialogue were all excellent here too! I really enjoyed reading this piece :)

Thanks for the swap!

Author's Response: Hello! :D

Thank you so much for the awesome swap, it was very lovely. I have quite a few George/Angelina stories but I don't have many stories that feature George as the main character.

There's always "The Two of Us" if you ever want to dabble in more Georgie though. :D

This is the only story that I've ever written that really shows how George was after Fred died. I haven't touched on this since but thank you for reading this, it hasn't gotten a review in a long time! :)

I think that it would take a long time for George to accept that Fred was gone. Not going back to the joke shop, where all of those memories were had to be hard but it was really the only thing he could do at the time.

The strange thing with George and Angelina is that they had always been very close. The fact that he would push her away instead of cling to her like most people would think, shows that he didn't want her to see who he had become. He didn't want her to see that he could be weak but that's discussed later on in This is Angelina.

Ah, the fact that their friends were so worried about Angie is because she was over working herself. She didn't seem outwardly broken but she had a lot of problems that I didn't emphasize here. If you read This is Angelina, you'll understand that moments before George and the others showed up, Angelina had had kind of a mental breakdown.

I wanted this to feel like a companion piece but not something you HAD to read in order to understand the plot. I'm glad that you still liked it though!

No one was expecting George to have a girlfriend and Natasha is not his type at all, really. Oh, everyone knew that George wanted Angelina, which was one of the many reasons that they didn't like Natasha. Hahaha.

It's always been Angie, that ending is one of my favorites. :3

Thanks a ton, darling for this review! It was so nice to read!

Much love,

Review #2, by Jayna Again

10th October 2015:
Hi! First of all, thank you so much for your review and I'm so sorry about how long it took me to review back. Basically, life happened:(

Ok, so I've never read This is Angelina, but I really liked this story. One thing that I really enjoyed was the way that I did NOT see Natasha coming. I definitely did not expect that and it hit me like a train. This story was well thought out and I think I could tell at the beginning that you knew what was going to happen in the story so it didn't drag. I also adored how you compared Natasha to Angie and showed, but didn't come out and say, that George was dating Natasha to take his mind off of Angie. Lastly, THE ENDING WAS PERFECT AND THE SWEETEST THING EVER! "There was only Angie, just like there’d always been." I think I'm going to cry!

Anyways, I noticed you have a few typos. I think that in one place when Natasha is talking about the muggle borns in the shop you wrote greog instead of george, and in another place, the one about oliver's wife katie, you forgot a comma and it made the sentence pretty confusing. These are just some minors things, but if you want to fix them that would be good. One last typo; when you were saying she was going to get a promotion for the HollyHead Harpies, I think the dash should be before now. In addition, I saw the on the banner you said something like his world REVOLVED around her, and then in the chapter summary and then somewhere in the story you said something like his whole world WAS CENTERED on her. I think that if you picked one and used it throughout these three places, it would be a bit more striking and really tie the whole thing together.

Overall, I really enjoyed this story!


Author's Response: Hello!

You are very welcome for the review and no worries for being late. Life comes first!

I really hope that you go read This is Angelina too! It's one of my favorite stories that I've written, actually. :D Hahah, I don't think that anyone expected Natasha to show up but you actually make a good point about the contrasts between her and Angie. I didn't intentionally set out to do that but you're so amazing because although George didn't say he was dating her so he wouldn't go after Angie, it's clear.

That ending is my favorite. So many feels.

Oh, I know that a lot of the CC's in this are bad. I wrote this ages ago and I haven't been back to edit it! Thanks for pointing them out to me though!

Much love,

It's Elijah from the forum.
I know this is late and I'm really sorry, unfortunately real life gets in the way. :(
Soo here goes:

I love George! I feel like so many stories forget about what he's been through. I think you got him perfectly! So many emotions are running through this story and I can feel them. You've already made me hate Natasha with a passion! I really want to know what happens between all the characters! George has to get rid of her!! He needs to be with Angelina! I'll definitely be reading 'This is Angelina'.

The only thing I'd say was I want more description, but that's only me. I'm a description freak. I want to know what everything looks like haha

- Elijah

Author's Response: Hello!

Thank you so much for this great review! No worries about being late either, real life come first!

I didn't think that you would check this out, it's one of my older stories but what a lovely surprise! :D I always really love writing George because you just don't see that many stories about him on the archives. We usually got a lot of Post-War George when it's centered around other people, it's kind of hard to find stand alone pieces sometimes. I'm glad that the emotions came across! I always try to get you guys to relate to my characters.

Natasha is horrible. You shall hate everything she says. If you actually want to read This is Angelina though, you will get your wish when she finally goes away. Hahaha.

I find your Cc so funny because I've been told that I add in too MUCH detail! Hahaha.


Much love,

Review #4, by ScorpiusRose17 Again

30th August 2015:
Hi Gabbie!

Sorry this took me so long to get to.

I really enjoyed this! George is so well written and I can completely feel his emotions come through as I read along. It is always so hard and sad to read about George in this way because of how you remembering him being before the Battle of Hogwarts.

I loved your description and the way that you flesh out the characters. I like how you explained what each of his friends were up to and what some of the residual affects they have been dealing with since the war.

This is beautifully written and I find myself wanting to read This is Angelina just to find out more! I will be adding it to my reading list.

I look forward to reading more of your writing!


Author's Response: Hello!

Thank you so much for stopping by, I certainly didn't think that you would pick this out of the stories on my page. That makes me so happy! :D

George is honestly my favorite Weasley to write, even more than Percy and because I had written him before in "This is Angelina" it was easier to get into his head here. I wrote this a while ago too but it's so nice to hear fresh opinions about it!

I thought that it was important to show that everyone was still struggling in some way. George was falling apart but everyone else had their own issues to work through and I also wanted to heighten his loneliness too. He felt like everyone was moving away from him.

Thank you SO much for the lovely review and if you plan on reading "This is Angelina" you should have tissues ready for the first four chapters. Hahaha.

Much love,

Review #5, by alicia and anne Again

6th June 2015:

I just couldn't resist a George story! Although I totally have my eyes on the rest of your Percy/Audrey story that I have got to read. I loved the few chapters that I had already read.

I already feel like this is going to break my heart into a million pieces.

You have described George's sink into depression so well. The way that you showed his emotions in this was just breathtaking! With every beautfiul word that I read, I could feel his pain. I was right. This is breaking my heart. I just want to be there for him. I just want to hug him and take that pain from him. :(

I know that Angelina will help him though, and that makes me happier. He is going to help her as well. They are going to help to heal each other. I am so sure of it.

Oh, he has a girlfriend. And she doesn't seem like a nice person at all. No wonder the others don't seem to like her at all. I don't. George deserves so much better. He deserves Angelina. You can tell with how alive he feels at seeing her. It's so much different from how he is with Natasha.

Wow!! I am going to need to read This is Angelina now! I need so much more!

Absolutely amazing work!


Author's Response: Hello!

Thanks for stopping by and I really appreciate this review. Also, really enjoyed our swap too! :D

I really love George and he's the favorite Weasley for me to write. It'd be great to see you reading my Percy/Audrey, that story could use some love. I think it's a tad too risky for some people. Hahaha.


Anyway, this story is so old! I didn't think that anyone would want to read it and I'm happy that you liked it! George is so sad that I think he needs to be comforted and that was intentional, you just want him to run to Angelina. The two of them love each other but you actually don't get the conclusion you want from either of them in this particular story. Hahahaha.

Anyway, Natasha is horrible and that was completely on purpose. She's the exact opposite of Angelina and that was why George wanted to be with her. We all know that he doesn't love her but the situation is resolved later. :D

Thanks for the review!

Much love,

Review #6, by cherry_pop94 Again

25th May 2015:
Hi Gabbie!

I'm here for our review swap! Sorry it took me so long, but life just sort of got in the way.

Anyway, I had to check out this story when you said you wrote George/Angelina. They're such a rare ship! I really like the setting you chose for this story too. One year after the war, but it still seems to be looming over everyone's head. The opening lines really set that up well. You've also given George some very realistic guilt. He's such a good person and I'm sure hurting and even killing people during the battle, even if those people were Death Eaters, would have a huge impact on him.

My one thing though is with the character Natasha. I don't think George would even be friends with someone like that, let alone date them. It seems unrealistic to me that he'd stray from his core beliefs that much. And even if he had, his friends (Alicia, Lee, Oliver) would never allow him to be around someone like Natasha.

All in all though, I thought this was a well done story. I love how much George cares about Angelina - his whole world really does revolve around her. I can tell that they will become a very sweet couple.

Great story!

Author's Response: Hello!

It's good to see you! Life shall get in the way but fanfiction will always prevail! Haha.

I have a very strong dedication to George/Angelina. You hardly ever see them on the archives and when you do, their story is always very similar so I tried to stray away from that as much as I could. I could never think that the survivors of the war were able to get over what they had seen a year, two years or even ten years later. That just seemed implausible to me, I'm sure that they all were dealing with various forms of PTSD.

How do you get your life back after something like that? That was something I'd wanted to explore but I sadly don't go into everything I wanted in this one-shot. I do explore it more in "This is Angelina" though around chapter five. Anyway, George is a kind hearted person and knowing that he may have seriously injured or killed someone would weigh heavily on him.

It's not merely losing his brother that's holding his heart down. I always wondered why no one explored that angle more, I'm sure that there were a lot of issues that he may have had after the fighting was over.

Oh, Natasha. A lot of people don't understand why he would want to be with someone like her and I'll explain it like this: George is so consumed with grief and denial at this point that he wants to push aside all that he was in order to move on. By dating someone like Natasha, he doesn't have to face the fact that he's in love with Angelina and always has been. It's a defense mechanism that may not make a lot of sense to everyone else, especially his friends but I've seen this sort of thing in person. It's not very pleasant to see a friend go down this path.

Anyway, though thanks SO much for the lovely review and I really hope to see you soon!

Much love,

Review #7, by toomanycurls Again

9th June 2014:
Man oh man, you really packed the feels into this. I felt miserable for George from the start and thought his longing for Angelina was really well portrayed. It was very interesting to see a bit about how George thinks and what his thought processes are. While it's terribly sad to see him grieving and in turmoil a year after the war, it's quite realistic that he would be.

I just can't see Angelina hating him for, well, fighting in a battle. I can see why George would think she'd think less of him though. But, really, you got the feels going really well in this one-shot. I sort of love that George's friends hate his interim gf. Just saying. It's kind of rad. :-o I can't believe she said that about muggle-borns. It's just... not what I expected form George's girlfriend.

I'm ridiculously happy with the ending. Wow, this is great motivation for reading your Angelina/George fic!!
Thanks for swapping!


Author's Response: Hello!

I haven't had a review for this in a long time, I nearly forgot that I had it and its one of my favorites! >_< I had never really seen a lot of stories that talk about the issues George may have been facing after the War and this was just my chance to really delve into it.
George is so miserable in the beginning of this and it was difficult to write, he's a hard character to get comfortable with. I have him a tad more emotional than necessary sometimes and its a challenge but I think that after everything that he had been through, it fit. :D

Oh, Angelina...George loves her so much that the thought of having her being pushed away by his own actions is too much for him to contemplate. He can't really fathom not having her in his life.

Everyone hates George's girlfriend. And I do mean EVERYONE. Hahahahaha.

That ending makes me turn into a puddle of feels because its what we've all been waiting for and I'm glad that you enjoyed it! I hope you do check out my story, "This is Angelina" though, its one of my first fanfics that I ever wrote. Hahah.

Thanks for the swap! ;)

Much love,

Review #8, by BellaFan202 Again

31st May 2013:
Hi! Love review swap, right? :)

This was really touching and I feel like it was absolutely perfect. Every other post-war George clings to Angelina and they're always completely inseparable and this was a nice chance from that.

The entire story led up to George and Angelina meeting, and the climax was not a let down at all. It didn't happen quite as I expected it to, but I liked it all the same. :)

I could really sympathize with George. I've never lost anyone that close to me, but I can imagine that I would probably feel somewhat similar as he did.

The only constructive criticism that I can think of is that there were a couple commas missing or placed in spots where they weren't needed, and a couple of paragraphs could have been split into two.

That's really all I've got to say, other than that was a really well written story and I definitely enjoyed it a lot! :)

Author's Response: Hello!

Thanks for stopping by with this review! I'll have to finish up our swap really soon too. My internet connection is sort of really bad right now but I can't wait to see what you've got written! :D
So this is one of my favorite one-shots and it focuses solely on my poor Georgie. I think in alot of Post-War stories its mostly about him and Fred with a little Angelina in for some variety. But I didn't want to focus on his relationship with her right away so I just gave little hints here and there that I hope made you guys see how close they'd been.
Anyway, writing a sad George was really challenging and I'm always surprised by how many people really liked it or are able to relate in some way. Makes me so proud. D':
If you were wanting to know more about this and what happens later on, try reading "This is Angelina" on my page. Its pretty much full of all the angst and George you can handle, hahaha.
I haven't edited this in a while but I'll most likely go over and correct those CC's! Thanks for pointing them out to me!
See you soon!
Much love,

Review #9, by Dark Whisper Again

2nd March 2013:

Wow, what a sad look at George, the poor dear. The war and the death of his brother has changed him so much.

I love that he still associates with his friends from school and that they are very concerned and worried for one of their own.

I like that you call her 'Angie' instead of her formal name.

I wonder if Angie even noticed his girlfriend in the room as she throws herself at George. :) Awkward.

I love how in-tuned you are with his thoughts. Your readers know what he is feeling with just her name being mentioned... the sound of her voice... and then actually seeing her. It is wonderful that his focus is on her completely, even with others present and that it had always been that way.

Ah, love... I love reading of smitten men.

Oh, and one last thing... I love how you described the kiss to his girlfriend. "No fireworks. No cherubs." LOL! Perfect. It is quite clear to us that the kiss had nothing behind it and we now know what that feels like.

Great job once more.
Dark Whisper

Author's Response: Hello!

Hey again, Dark Whisper, thanks for stopping by! You have stumbled upon one of my most depressing one-shots! D':
Thank you! :)
George has changed so much since the War and losing Fred, I'm glad that I was able to put that in there all right. My poor, redheaded guy. I love George, he's my favorite Weasley you know and I'm a big Georgelina shipper!
I'm not sure why some fanfics have it like the group just split up after the War. I mean, honestly, they've known each other for years, almost died together and suddenly don't speak? Like, what?! So of course Oliver and the rest are going to be there for him. :D
Yep, "Angie" is just the nickname and she of course calls him, "Georgie" sometimes along with the others. They're good enough friends for that to happen you know. :D
Ah, thank you for liking George's crazy emotions, I tried so hard. He's very difficult to write but I'm glad that you were able to see how much he cared about Angie.
Angie wasn't thinking when she kissed George, she just reacted. Its all in "This is Angelina", which this one-shot is coming from! :D
Hahahahaha! I like writing smitten men, but I mostly write angst so things never work out!
Most of the time.
Bwhaha, to George, kissing another girl is more like a duty adn I'm glad that you enjoyed his view on that kiss! :D
Thank you so much for your reviews!
Much love,

Review #10, by Remus Again

22nd January 2013:
So! You helped His Pack of Four get to 100 reviews so I figured I should put your story to 10! And I love Fred/George Weasley stories. Either they make me laugh or cry! :S

Just so you know, I read and review as I go along.

The third paragraph, the one that begins with 'Althought' it felt like the first sentence was way too wordy. It could've easily be broken after the word 'here. I only mention this because right after it you have a very short sentence. It messes with the flow. I'm very guilty of that myself, and it has been pointed out to me as well...just passing on tips I've gotten. XD

I really like the emotions you had here. It made me feel really, really sad for George. And your story just made me realize something which seems rather silly to not have figured this out earlier...but George losing his ear was a foreshadowing of Fred's death. Anyway! I loved the struggle George had with his feelings. He's not even sure how he feels himself!

The paragraph that begins with "If you want to wait until some other time"--its one whole sentence. You could definitely break it a bit where it won't feel too wordy.

I like how you made Oliver change a bit after the war. The shortness of temper was a very nice touch. Some post-war fics don't touch on the re-building of the people's lives. They go straight from the war to being happy go lucky. That doesn't fly well with me. So kudos to you for keeping the emotions real here.

'Oliver said and George felt a spark of worry'So George just suddenly got worried? Shouldn't he, since he's in love, be worried to begin with. Yeah, he might not wish to see her but a human emotion regarding someone you care about is worry when things are not right with them, you know. This was the only instance where George's feelings didn't make sense; you managed to capture them in the rest of the chapter though.

OMG! George has a girlfriend? How rude of him! :O Why? Why is he dating her? She sounds like the person that stands against what George was raised to believe. Anyway! So another thing that stood out...they've been dating for 'the past year'. The war happened 'a year ago.' George started to date immediately after the war...which doesn't seem right, specially after losing his other half.

I absolutely love the end! I mean, poor George...confused of his own feelings and at the same time afraid of them. I guess I'm gonna have to put 'This is Angelina' in my to-read list! I want to know more about this!

Anyway, overall this was a great one-shot. You managed to capture emotions very well. Including the characterization George has. Poor broken guy! The only thing I would recommend is breaking some sentences up a bit to give it a better flow. Other than that...I guess that's it! I hope what I pointed out doesn't upset you or anything :( You have a great story that can only get better, you know.

Until next time, Gabby!!


Author's Response: Hello!

*Fangirls* Gasp! Thanks so much for stopping by with a review for me and congrats on His Pack of Four on making a hundred! *Tosses confetti* That's great news! :3
Bwhaha, I'm guilty of making really short sentences and I'll take a look at it. I edit alot but I still make a million mistakes and someone's always pointing out some helpful tips. I never have time to do as much as I would like on editing and I'm lazy, so forgive me. Hahaha.
I'm glad that you were able to really connect with George, no matter how sad it was. It took me such a long time to get what I wanted for him, he's a really hard character to write for. Sometimes, I sort of hate him even while I love him. Its a strange relationship, I tell you. :D
Eerie thing you pointed out about his ear though, I never paid attention to that! D':
Ah. More breaks, you say? I shall get to that eventually!
Ooh, I know what you mean. I don't believe that everyone was so happy and without issues after the War. I had to make everyone different and effected in their own way and I'm glad that you were able to pick up on that. War is an awful thing, it leaves alot of physical and mental scars! D':
I think on that line you were talking about, George hasn't felt anything in a long time so feeling actual worry sort of threw him off. But I don't think I wrote it as well as I should have, so thanks for pointing it out! :D
Yeah, George has a girlfriend! Like, since when did we break up?! Hahaha. Its strange how many people comment on Natasha and how much they don't like her. But yes, he dated her a little while after the War ended and I think I go into it a little more in This is Angelina. Loneliness might have had alot to do with it but he says more in that story and it really isn't romantic so much as depressing. :(
Thanks for loving that ending! I wasn't sure if I should end it there or not but was like, "If I keep writing, it'll go on forever." and so, thanks alot for enjoying it! George's feelings are so twisted and confused, you might not like him too much in This is Angelina but if you ever have the time, enjoy that! It would please me. :D
Oh, no, your CC's don't bother me! I like nice CC's, some people can be a little too mean when they're offering "advice" hahaha. To each their own, I suppose.
Thanks for liking this! It means alot and I'll see you around and see if I can get to correcting some of those sentences. Eventually.
See you on the forums!
Much love,

Review #11, by patronus_charm Again

19th January 2013:
Hey Gabbie! I'm on here on my review spree! I'll review the *sob* last chapter of Abandon after this:D, or tomorrow as it's nearly 11 :/

It was really nice how you portrayed George wanting to give up on the shop after Fred died, as I guessthey worked together on everything, and were one another's muses however once one of them had gone, how could they carry on. It almost made me want to cry, seeing George so forlorn and wanting to give up :'(

It was nice seeing the old quidditch crew, try and help pull both George and Angelina through this hard time, I guess they lost one of their comrades so there pulling the ranks in tighter (I don't know why I just went all army speak:/). One thing I wasn't so sure on was Oliver being a businessman, I always assumed he would be a quidditch player, considering he got that spot at Puddlemere.

I can see why George had to date Natasha, as I much as I disliked because of her views on muggleborns. He needed to be not constantly reminded of Fred, so dating someone who supported the cause Fred died trying to get rid of, is the perfect solution.

I loved that scene at the end of Angelina and George reunited, as I really love them together, of course I know George gets his act together and ditchs Natasha for her, but having this drama of when he will is so much better! You made a great villan out of her though!

Again, I loved it, and I'll be back soon, with the review on Abandon :) Kiana x

Author's Response: Hello!

Hey, thanks for the random review! Haha. You could have jumped on anything really, I wasn't sure where I'd see you popping up but anyway, thanks!
George was going through so much after Fred died that he really couldn't see his life moving forward, which would explain why he didn't want to be around the shop. :(
But they have too many memories there and he didn't feel like giving that up.
You'll see the old quidditch crew again and again, they love each other too much to let each other go. They've been through too much together. :)
With Oliver, I hadn't really thought about it but I suppose he may have gotten an injury at Puddlemore and decided to try making brooms instead. :) Perhaps.
You know, that is the first time that anyone has ever dared to point that out about George's relationship with Natasha. It makes me wonder though, so thanks for pointing that out there! There's alot of questions about their relationship and if you'd wanted, try reading "This is Angelina", it explains it alot more. :D
George gets his act together eventually but you should really try reading This is Angelina, it really doesn't go as planned. But there's a happy ending underneath all its angst. And blood. And angst. And tears. :D
Anyhoo, I'll be looking forward to seeing you again for Abandon! Thanks alot doll!
Much love,

Review #12, by MadamePuddifoot Again

3rd January 2013:
George - you love Angelina, just accept it! Ditch snobby Natasha and accept your feelings, boy!

Anyway, rant over, and here I am, returning the favour and reviewing your wonderful stories! Well, I thoroughly enjoyed this one-shot and will be making my way to our other stories presently! What can I say? The concept was great, short, sweet and to the point. I am just in love with the idea of the old Gryffindor Quidditch team still being friends an hanging out (except for Harry of course, but I'd say he's a bit busy elsewhere and Lee makes a wonderful substitute! and poor old Fred, but that's another story) and Oliver is the wonderful voice of reason! Perfect!

The conversation between them all is very true to character, especially all their back and forth. The descriptions are wonderfully vivid, especially those of poor George's emotions at the beginning which made me want to hug the poor chap! And Natasha is just...ugh, fantastically horrible! She really is vile, but you write her very well! And what and ending! I just want George and Angelina to kiss and make up, dammit!

Until next time!

Author's Response: Hello!

Madame P, where have you been hiding?! I've missed you bunches! Welcome back! :D
This little one-shot comes from "This is Angelina" and we all know from that that George and Angie wind up together after alot of angsty turmoil. If you recall? Hehehe. :3
I had wanted to actually write a "This is George" but I'm going to be so busy lately that I don't think I'll have time for it, so I settled on this one-shot. :D
The idea of having the old Quidditch gang together just makes me all warm and fuzzy. Aside from dearly beloved Fred and Harry, everyone's still together and offering endless support and love. :D
Its a contrast to how George feels at the moment and I had so much fun playing with that and his emotions gave me some trouble but I got them just right I think. Hopefully?
Natasha just had to make an appearance in this one-shot and I couldn't help but maker her as vile as possible. She's such a hated character for me that I can't help torturing you all and its all very fun. :3
Thanks for coming back though, I'd missed getting your reviews and of course, catching up on your stories too! I hope to see you around soon! I've got my Percy/Audrey and George's story updated and several other things that you can read while you wait. :D
Argh, I just missed you alot! *hugs*
Much love,

Hello lovely :)

Okay since you told me about your Georgilina obsession I have been dying to read these and I'm so glad I have more to go to after this one :D

I absolutely adored this one-shot, my heart really went out to George. Gah - he's so broken without Fred. Why did JK have to kill Fred? I don't think I will ever come to terms with it!!

I loved all the characters you brought into this as well (bar one but I will discuss her after) Alicia and Lee made me laugh and I liked the part you brought in about her helping to fix him. It showed people being able to get on with life after the war and that's so great. Hmm Oliver Wood. I have to admit I have a soft spot for him in the books and I adore any fanfic that includes him so yay for that!! The only person I didn't like (and it has nothing to do with your writing by the way... you did it well I just don't like her) is Natasha. Eugh. She just isn't someone George should be with and everyone can see it and so I hope when I go and read your other story George will see it too and be with Angelina like he should be :)

I loved the conflicting emotions you created for George within this piece. Wanting to go to and be with Angelina as well as not. It was wonderfully written - you really got across George's emotion.

I also wanted to mention the bit you wrote about George killing someone in the battle of Hogwarts. I've never really seen this issue come up before in a story and I think what you've written is so realistic. I'm sure most of the characters would struggle to come to terms with killing a person, even in the situation they were in where it's kill or be killed! I just wanted to commend you on it as I thought it was excellent!

Gah - the ending was lovely :) When she threw herself at him I was doing a little dance inside!! I just loved it and when you mentioned Natasha scowling I wanted to evil laugh in her face for being mean. Sorry, I just don't like her! the last line was one of my favourites where it's always been Angelina for him, again with the sweetness and loveliness, it just makes me smile inside!

I love your obsession with George... it kind of matches mine for Fred :) I figure if we pretend Fred never dies then the four of us can live happily haha. Oh I wish :)

Well done on a fabulous story my dear, I'm sure you can expect more reviews from me soon!!

Lauren :)

Author's Response: Hey!

I have such a strong Georgelina obsession and I just can't seem to shake it no matter how hard I try. There's just something about George Weasley that makes me get all fuzzy on the inside. Could it be love? Hahaha.
Thanks so much for coming to this one-shot! This is the only one-shot that I've gotten that has so many reviews and I thought that that was so shocking! Its actually quite dark and I didn't think that too many people would enjoy the nature of George so different.
I had to add in all of George's friends because I wanted to show just how much everyone had changed, and how he was having such a hard time dealling with it. It was harder to grasp their issues versus his own though but I managed to plow through really well. Alicia and Lee all the way! :D I love that couple, I hardly see it on the archives and anything with Oliver Wood makes me happy too. :D
Oh, Natasha. So many complaints about her for this one-shot, for "This is Angelina..." where this actually comes from...
People despise her. I can't blame them at all when she's such an icky character but the fact that she's so different from Angelina is apparent.
Perhaps I did it on purpose? :3
Oh, thanks for mentioning the fact that George had killed someone. For some reason, that's an issue that I've never really seen on the archives and I'm not sure why. I'm pretty sure that it would be painful for the survivors and that's a major issue with George. He had never hurt anyone before and he didn't have his brother to help him through and felt estranged from his family. So he was suffering so much. Poor dear.
Hahah, yay for Angelina! She did throw herself at him but its hard not to forget about Natasha and squeal with delight. Its completely all right that you don't like Natasha, she's not the easiest person TO like.
Ah, that last line always makes me happy too, it sums up the entire one-shot wonderfully. But, if you wanted to read "This is Angelina," you get more on what happened afterward from Angelina's POV. "Memories" is a coming of age thing from George's POV and its pretty all right so far. :D
I can't thank you enough for coming back to read my work! You're far too nice to me and it makes me so happy! :D
Hugs and kisses.
Much love,

Review #14, by Violet Gryfindor Again

24th December 2012:
This was very good! I've seen you around the forums many times, and I'm glad to finally have the chance to read one of your stories! :)

What I liked most about this story was the way that you examined George's character after the war - those beginning paragraphs when you described how he was still trying to cope with his twin's death and the pain he kept experiencing was powerful. It's just what I thought George would be like afterwards. Yes, it's been a year, which is a long time, but he's also suffering from the loss of half of himself. I love how you give a clear idea of his uncertainty - he's on the cusp of moving on, which is a great place to begin this one-shot.

One thing I'm having difficulty with is the place of Natasha in George's life. Why on earth would he date someone like her? She's everything his family fought against, so why involve himself with a girl who can't stand Muggles and Muggle-borns? It could be a strong reaction against the pain of his brother's death, one of those crazy things people do when grieving and depressed, but I'm not convinced. Perhaps you explain it in the other story - in this one-shot, however, there's not enough to properly situate her within his life (especially when he's so willing to throw her off for Angelina in the end anyway). It can be fixed by providing a little more explanation, even a line here and there will do, just to help readers along.

Other than that, you write the canon characters excellently, giving a sense of how life would have been for this particular "generation" after the war. They fought too, and they're scarred, some more heavily than others, yet they still stick together and help each other through. You also do a great job with the pacing, including those short, one-sentence paragraphs in just the right places. :) I look forward to checking out more of your work in the future!

Author's Response: Hello!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out some of my work. Its always so flattering and plus, I was intending on reviewing one of your stories last night but Christmas food got the best of me. Hahah.
I shall do that soon! Promise!
Anyhoo, thanks for stopping by for this one-shot! I'd had the idea for it for a little while and it literally slapped me in the face one day and I decided to actually type it out.
I think George is probably the hardest person to write for. Like, ever. I had such a hard time balancing his pain and how he had changed during the past year! It took forever for me to get that just right and I'm really glad that I was able to express that well. Its such a relief, I was really nervous that I hadn't done it well. Angst is what I like most but I sometimes get so scared about delving into some of those emotions! D':
Ah, Natasha. I've gotten quite a few complaints about her in this one-shot and in the story "This is Angelina" where she shows up. I should have gone into more detail on why George was with her because just those few paragraphs really don't give you much. That's my fault as the author though because I was focusing so much on how he felt about Angelina, who he totally kissed and such! Hahaha. I think its explained in more depth in "This is Angelina" so you can check that out if you want. I think...not quite sure. Hahahah.
Oh, thanks so much for liking all the other characters. I tried to show a sense of what it was like for them all, they all had fought and lost many things. I think I went down the line too, with Alicia, with her scar, Lee and his drinking, Oliver with his temper. They're all completely different from how they'd been before and I'm glad that was able to be understood! :D
Phew, I was worried about the pacing of this but you liked it? Thanks so much! *Blush* I thought I'd made it a little too long and that it jumped a little. But this makes me really happy! :D
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again for one of my stories! I'll hop on over to yours soon too and I'll most likely be stalking the forums!
Much love and thanks so much!

Gabbie! How dare you! You didn't tell me about this! This is amazing by the way, I just love the way you capture George and Angelina's relationship and their emotions. You are such an amazing writer! Well done yet again,
GirlOnTheSidelines x

Author's Response: Hello!

Gasp! I could have sworn that I'd mentioned this one-shot on the forums! D': I wasn't trying to keep it from you or anything! It actually sprang up on its own against my will and I just had to type it all out!
George and Angelina's emotions are so difficult to write for but thanks so much! I tried my best and I need to go through and fix some things but you're too nice to me! D':
Thanks so much and I'm looking forward to your updates! (Hint, hint)
Much love,

An excellent one shot. I love the way that you showed the doubts and anxiety that George was going through before the reunion with Angie, the feelings were so close to real life.
I was thinking that you could do some kind of prequel to this story (if you've not done so before) about how George drifted apart from Alice and also how he met Natasha.
9/10 and adding to favourites.

Author's Response: Hello!

Wow, we've never spoken before so its nice to meet you and everything and thanks so much for reading! I've written two other one-shots and have never gotten this many reviews for them so, this is making me blush so much!
Anyway, George's doubts and anxiety were something that I'd played with before and had never had a chance to do while he was on his own. It almost made me cry though because I didn't think that I'd depicted it properly.
I was thinking of doing some sort of prequel to this, it actually ties along with my other story, "This is Angelina". But oddly, whenever I wanted to do a "This is George" my drive never saved my work or my computer died! D': I almost thought it wasn't meant to be but I might just do it eventually so keep a lookout for that! Also! Try reading "This is Angelina" its filled with angst but I hope you'll enjoy it too. :D
You might be seeing it soon, depending on how I get some other stories done!
Thanks so much!
Much love,

Review #17, by caoty Again

Hey there!

I will admit right now, romance is not my forte, so expect this review to be several kinds of terrible.

So this is a very compelling account of, I guess, the cost of war - trauma and depression and loss, and you've shown that well while also having your characters move on with their lives. You've struck a good balance. Well done.
This line in particular stood out to me:

>His smiles were weaker now too and he drank too much

Because it just sums up an entire story in a line, and it's fantastic.

Maybe, though, if I'm being entirely honest here, we could've done with more information - more setting the scene, if you like. I haven't read any of your other fic before so I don't know what your timeline is like, but I personally would've liked to know how George ended up in this situation in the first place - or maybe put in a warning in your author's note that new people might not understand without having read A Force of Wills, or something.
And there were a couple of typos here and there, so you may want to check that again or get a beta.

Other than that, though - yeah, it got a bit CC-heavy, didn't it? - this was interesting, and I might drop in for a look at some of your other stuff in the future. :)

Author's Response: Hello!

Well, I honestly didn't expect you to pop over and read this one-shot! I really, really didn't. But what a surprise for me! :D
Anyway, this whole one-shot is from my story "This is Angelina", which I did put as a warning of sorts in my A/N. "A Force of Wills" is something different but there are one-shots for it too so be warned if you wanted to read those.
ANYWAY! Thanks for liking that line, I'd typed this story up rather quickly and hadn't gone through as much proof-reading and all that so my apologies. And I do think I'll probably go back and add in a bit more detail, it was something I'd been planning on doing but didn't get around to.
And if you are going to read more of my work, be prepared for more typos, horrible grammar problems and so on and so forth. I'm most likely not going to get a beta or anything but I'll go through and edit and such whenever I have the time. I don't consider myself that great of a writer to be honest but I like handling my mistakes first hand. It makes me feel like I'm improving. Does that make sense? No?! Darn. Hahah.
Well, if you do or don't drop back in to read something else of mine, it was nice replying to your good review! What were you so worried about anyway? :D
Anyway, I'll catch you on the forums and thanks for being such a dear and reviewing!
Much love of course,

Review #18, by SereneChaos Again

5th October 2012:
Aww, that was cute. George's thoughts were really well done in this. I think I might have liked to see a little more time-setting (how long after Battle of Hogwarts is this?) and why George is so anxious about seeing Angelina. I liked how you made Natasha pleasant, but I think it might have been nicer to not have George's friends dislike her so much. That way it'd stay consistent with Natasha's friendly actions towards them. Otherwise though, I thought the ending was really cute!

Good job!

Author's Response: Hello!

We have never spoken before so its nice to meet you and thanks so much for reading and being the first reviewer! *Blushes*
George's thoughts are so hard to get down, especially in this stage of the story and I know, I should have done a bit better with my time-setting. Its a year after the Battle and I think I mentioned it somewhere around there but I probably didn't add enough detail so I take full blame.
Oh! I probably should have gone into more emphasis on WHY George is so anxious about seeing Angelina but this is taken from another story and I shouldn't have assumed everyone had read it. Sorry! I might go through and edit it, I'd typed it really quickly and hadn't taken alot of time with it like I normally would have. :p
Being lazy! Hahah.
The thing with Natasha is that she's pleasant but she's just...there. There's no depth to her at all with her relationship with George and you get a bit more of that in "This is Angelina". Again, I probably should have gone into more detail about it so my apologies! :D
Thanks so much for reading and liking this! Erm, please feel free to read more of my work and such! I love talking to new people!
Much love,
