Chapter: One-Shot

I had read this earlier but hadn't remembered to review until now.

I think that it is so perfect that you did Arthur. I of course first thought it was George at first and as I went on, it just seemed a little off for him, but there are so many different ways authors portray him after the war that I ignored it, but then I read the last line and my heart just about broke. It's so easy to forget how Fred's death would affect everyone else as well, and this portrayal of a father mourning the death of his son is just heart-breaking. It's just so depressing to see Arthur Weasley so lost, but I think you did an excellent job on this.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review! Which feels ironic, given that this is very sad, lol. But I did want readers to think it was George, and then left a few clues here and there so it wasn't a complete surprise at the end, so I'm glad that came out. I actually think Arthur would be much stronger for his family, but it was interesting to explore a much sadder way of him dealing with Fred's death. Thank you again for the review, I really appreciate it! ~Gina :)

I really liked this Gina. Arthur is too often neglected in fanfic dealing with teh loss of Fred. Beautiful. Love that Ginny resued him. :)

Author's Response: Thanks so much, Lori! I'm glad you liked it, even though it was very sad for Arthur. I don't think he'd really end up like that, but it seemed a bit obvious to make it George at the end. ;) Thanks again, I really appreciate the review! ~Gina :)

Great job with this one, Gina. I was sure you were writing about George. Poor Arthur, no one ever seems to write about how lost he must have felt; it's always about Molly or George. This is really lovely but so very sad, especially the whole first paragraph. It's so difficult to put into words how the grief of losing a loved one makes you feel physically and you captured it perfectly. I really love this

Author's Response: Thank you so much, Lea! It is rather sad and I did sort of want readers to think it was George at first, so I'm glad you did, hee hee. I really have no idea if Arthur would have reacted this way, but I did want to explore his character a bit with this, as well as keep his identity secret until the very end. I'm so glad you liked it, thank you for the review!! ~Gina :)
