I loved this one the first time I read it, and it's still just as great. It's an excellent piece, and the capture of grief and resolution is just perfect.

Review #2, by teh tarik A Conversation

4th July 2013:
Oh my god. WAIL. SOB. CRIES.

Ahem. This isn't the most coherent start to a review, but a;kjsfasdklj post-war Fred&George stories always, always give me a hard blow to the solar plexus, and this one was especially hard. This was just beautifully and poignantly written; it was angsty, but there were moments of humour and lightness, and you did a brilliant job capturing the twins' voices and speech patterns and the use of colloquialisms were really effective and suitable for the characterisations.

"I'll cut you some slack, brother. I admit I am a hard guy to get over."

"That's what I miss most, Fred. Your deep sense of humility!"

This is ugh so perfect. This is so Weasley twins. The dynamic between them, the ability to make a joke even in the darkest of times. Their sense of humour is so clear here and so wonderfully portrayed.

The way you wrote George's grief was so intense. It was uncomfortable, really; reading his pain and his plight was like witnessing something very personal and it gave me a deep sense of discomfort, which I really appreciate, because not many stories can make me feel this way. Watching George spiral down so low to the point of being repeatedly ejected from bars as a regular drunken nuisance, the way he completely loses any sense of self for a little while, just ajsklfhasj everything.

But of course, I love how this doesn't end all dark and angsty but with the whole light at the end of the tunnel. It's been a difficult journey for George, and he really does deserve that light and hope and here I am crossing my fingers that he'll recover and get Angelina back and that things will get better - they do seem much better already.

Well, I've been rambling. :P But this was such an intensely emotional read and I loved this story! Amazing work! :D


Author's Response: What a fantastic review! Thank you so much. I know you say you rambled, but it's the emotions that caused you to that I'm so proud of. I love that you felt the way I intended readers to feel; the way I felt when I wrote it. Fred's death was one of the hardest for me. Because their characters were so intertwined, separating them was devastating. I was given this challenge a few years back, and was told I had to write about an anniversary. Because I love angst and emotion as much as fluff, I took it a different direction than expected. I'm so glad you liked the result. I appreciate your review so much!~GW
