Review #1, by patronus_charm Goodbye, Gred.

19th March 2015:
Hey there, reviewing for the HPFF Fundraiser challenge over at the forums!

Omg, what have you done to me? I thought this would be a cute angsty story and it has left me in balls of tears and wondering what on earth is wrong with the world. I honestly, donít know what to say/do right now. It was such a beautiful one-shot as the emotions were so raw throughout and it was so real and painful and wow, I really loved it! ♥

I really loved how it was Fred who was the strong one and he was the one urging George on with his life and trying to make him carry on again. It almost made me laugh how pragmatic he was as he was the one saying to George that he should carry on with his life and start living again, and I think as he and George were so close, he was the only one who could push George back into the real world. I think that was really shown with the Forge/Gred name things going on as that made me a little teary eyed.

The end with Ginny was so lovely! ♥ It was nice to see she was reaching for her brother and not Harry in this moment of need, and it was only George who could comfort her. I just wanted to hug both of them then as that moment was so horrible, but they needed to do it to start living again.

Wah this was just so sad and beautiful! ♥

Review #2, by Anonymous (No Account) Goodbye, Gred.

SO SAD!! :`( Seriously though, it was very well-written, and just long enough. I love Fred and George, and it was nice to see Fred helping George, even posthumously. But not post-humour-ously! Okay, that was a bad joke. But it fits!

Author's Response: Hello!

I like your joke! It's fitting in an inappropriate sort of way (just the type George and Fred would have liked!) Thanks for the lovely review! I'm glad you think it's well written. I always have my insecurities about my ability to write in English.

Thanks again! :)

This was very sad, but also very good. I like the fact that you've written it TO George rather than about him, because it made it more interesting. I also really liked the fact that Fred could help him, even from 'the other side'. I imagine George, Ginny and Molly being the ones who took Fred's death the hardest, so it was kind of nice to see them seek comfort with each other.

It was really well written and you should be very happy with it :) I mean, the chapter is pretty short, which I normally would remark about, but in this case I thought it was the perfect length. A lot of emotion without any babbling - just perfect! :)

Author's Response: Hello! Thank you so much for the lovely review, you have no idea how much your words mean to me. I was very nervous about this, as it is my first attempt at a grief!fic. I love Fred and George and I haven't written them before because I thought I wouldn't be able to give them justice. I'm glad that my characterisation wasn't terribly bad.

I imagine Molly, Ginny and George taking it the hardest too. (Well, clearly.) I've always thought that Ginny was very close with the twins and I think she'd be the one to help George get back to being.. well, George.

I'm glad you think it's well written. English is not my native language and I always have my doubts about this and that. I'm the queen of short chapters, unfortunately. Whenever I try to make them long, they always tend to end up really bad. A lot of paragraphs of nonsense with no relevance.

Anyway, thanks again!!!
