GASP! Bill/Fleur fics = love. Fiddler on the Roof songfics = love, too. Fiddler on the Roof songfics incorporating Bill and Fleur shipping = TRUE LOVE!
This was very sweet, and I love the way that Bill and Fleur chose to make an unbreakable vow. And, of course, I loved the "I, too, came prepared."
Author's Response: IT'S A SHMERGO PALOOZA! Sorry. Fiddler rocks, Bill rocks, Fleur rocks, its just general rockiness all around, so I HAD to write a story. I'm glad it turned out alright! Thanks for the review!
Wow! That was really good! I don't recognize the song, though I've seen Fiddler on the Roof more times than I can count, but I bet next time I see it, I'll be kicking myself!
Author's Response: It's the song between Hodel and Perchik, if that rings any bells... it's not the best known of all of them, though. Glad you liked it, and congratulations- you're my 100th review EVER! yay! *confetti*
This was simply lovely. I really liked how you mixed the traditional wedding with a wizarding twist. There seems to be a common "wizarding" wedding that someone wrote ages ago, and so many people have adopted as well. I appreciate that you took a different route. The use of the Unbreakable Vow was a nice solution to this situation. I think it would help a lot of people (namely Molly) realize just how serious the couple was. Nice work.
Author's Response: thanks! I originally had an all-muggle style wedding, but my beta suggested something more magical, so props to her for the unbreakable vow idea. And yes, hopefully Molly will now realize the two are really, truly in love. thanks for the review!
Oh, my. I immensely enjoyed this. This was a wonderful story - emotionally engaging in every aspect from the beginning to the end. Here, you have nicely explored all the feelings one feels before one takes forward one's toughest decisions in life: the slight and unexaggerated nervousness in the beginning, the expectation, the rush of happiness on seeing one's love at the altar, at the same time the deep, mixed feeling of pride and sorrow she feels, as she looks at his injuries... One word: Beautiful.
Though I would have liked to see more imagery and description of the surrounding, I must say the atmosphere itself drew me deeply in, not permitting me to think of other trivial things. It's not surprising that I had a particular fondness for this line: It was simple, but in it was everything marriage meant to Fleur.
I really did find nothing for you to improve on... sorry for being very unhelpful, but I think I mustn't let you fiddle with this story. Splendid job, Jerri! I give you a 10!
Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it so much! And although I suppose I could have out in more description of the setting, I was going for the effect you had- just not noticing the other things. After all, Fleur and Bill only had eyes for each other, just like Ron only had eyes for Hermione. And please, don't thik you're unhelpful- any review is encouraging. Heehee. 'Fiddle' with the story. Was that an intentional Fiddler on the Roof pun? The world may never know.... thanks for the review!
awww! that was a really nice, fluffy story!
Author's Response: thanks! I meant it to be fluffy like a giant teddy bear, so I'm glad that it turned out that way. Thanks for the review!
Sweet! It was lovely, and made me smile ;-)
The Unbreakable Vow was a good idea too.
Author's Response: thanks! I was feeling rather lovey-dover when I wrote it... and we just finished doing the musical at my school so its been stuck in my head for awhile now. If you can ever hear the song, I'd reccomend it- the music, as well as the lyrics, helped inspire this fic, and its very good. And my wonderful beta Thoth actually inspired the unbreakable vow idea, so props to her!
SOO sweet! I wish my wedding could be like that someday! Minus the dress robes, mind you....
Author's Response: Oh, I don't think I would mind dress robes! Thanks for the review, though!
