Amazing again! completely heartfelt and just right for the situation. i was always of the opinion that's Ron's lighthearted behaviour was always just a facade to hide his real feelings. a very insightful chapter.
Author's Response: Thanks so much. Ron's my favorite character, and I love both his silliness and the more serious side we see a lot in DH. He's just so delightfully complex. Thanks again for the kind words.
Oh, how did I miss the first chapter when it was posted?
I think this is a perfectly written "missing moments" story. They are just delightfully in character. I felt that those moments in DH in the Malfoy Manor were so powerful, and because of the intensity of the moments, emotions came to the surface. I really like how you've portrayed Ron and Bill's relationship, and I really like Fleur, as well. I think she is someone that writers struggle to portray, but I think you've done a marvelous job. She is running her household, taking care of her guests.
I particularly enjoyed this part:
“He’s suffering from something else, too,” she said quietly, her eyes on the sleeping girl.
“I agree,” Bill said. “Do you think he knows it?”
“If he didn’t before tonight, he does now,” Fleur commented.
I think it illustrates both an aspect of Fleur's character, and her and Bill's relationship.
Overall, I will now be awaiting the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the encouragement. Chapter three is written and will be coming soon. And thanks for specifying what part you liked. We know from DH that Ron did know way before then, but its fun to imagine that it was news to Bill and Fleur. Thanks again for the kind words.
Forgive me - I thought you were the same Weasley Mom who wrote "Finally Home" back in the day. Everything I said still stands, however - great work.
Author's Response: Thanks so much. Though I do feel badly now that I have usurped someone else's identity. I hope she will forgive me. Haha. I'm having a good time with this... thanks again for the kind words.
i really thoguht that they would get together at Shell Cottage...but Harry was too preoccupied. can't wait to see where you take this : )
Author's Response: I got ten bucks that says they do it that way in the movie. I loved the way it happened in book, too. But I really wish we had more of the Shell Cottage interaction. More soon... chapter three is finished, its that blasted chapter two I'm stumped on. Thanks for all three responses guys.
I love this first chapter! It's so powerfully emotional. I think you've done the characters just right. I can't wait for the next one! (Sorry this review hasn't much substance; it's really late where I am. I'll try and give more concrit in the future, k?) :)
Author's Response: Thanks so much. I'm glad you like it.
omg so good!! please add more!!
Author's Response: Thanks so much!
