Oh my. Katie, you know I love you, but why do you do this to me?
I know this isn't a great review, I'm no SPEW member, but, wow. That was so sad! Poor Hermione, She's lost everything and there's no resolution. No one can help her or change anything... its just so sad!!! :_(

Oh my god, Katie, that was so sad. But so good. I wanted to stop reading because it was making me sad, but I really wanted to know what Hermione would do.

*huggles Katie* You are amazing. This was really, really good. And I wish I had written a better review, but I don't know what else to say.

Author's Response: Thanks, lovey =) I'm glad you reacted the way you did -- that's what I was aiming for. And sorry that Neville died... *winks*

There's something about Hermione in this fic that I absolutely love. It was a bit dramatic, but she's just so vulnerable and I think that evened it out because you had a good handle on her. And ooh yeah... *sob* = ) .
Great job, I really liked it.

Author's Response: Thanks Tiff! I'm glad you liked Hermione...she is my favorite character to write =)

That was really powerful. I feel so much sympathy for Hermione! Maybe you could elaborate on how she ultimately deals with her grife.

Bad me for not reviewing when I read it the first time... This was absolutly amazing. It is a very moving piece, strong and to the point. You have a nice style of writing, and while I'm not a fan of 'battlefield/everyone dies' fics this was still very well written. Good job. PS: I love that song! Too bad I don't know where my 'Be Not Nobody' CD went to.

Author's Response: Thank you very much! This review really made me smile. Hope you find your CD soon!

Did I like it? Katie, that was incredible. It was so utterly powerful, I'm

*sits back, stunned* *blinks and shakes head*

I would never have guessed it was your first attempt at angst! That was exceptional writing, that was! The imagery was so harsh, portrayed pictures of such horror, that I had to stop and look away in the first paragraph, once at the "pink umbrella" part and again further on. I couldn't stand it. I was hating you, for killing everyone off. No survivors was just too much. It was odd how no one was left but her, and yet they were still victorious, but this was overshadowed by Hermione being really, truly alone. The fact that she is still feeling such strong emotions captures how attached she was to the people she fought beside.

The transition from her dream to reality was very abrupt and jarring, and completely sealed the "jolted from sleep" effect. Loved it.

The R/Hr moment - *smiles* - was very surreal, but almost to the point of being unreal. I suppose that's all right, as it's Hermione's memory, and she's not going to remember anything bad about that moment at this time. So, I guess that sums "Paradise." Proves that your fic really takes in-depth analysis to understand the tiny nuances. Very good =).

Overall, what I liked most was how rushed everything was, especially her memories of her comrades falling. I don't know if you did it deliberately, but it captures the "life slips by too fast" feeling. As well as enhancing Hermione's desperation to return to the past.

I am still amazed with this! The emotions truly shown through the words - by the way, your word choices were wonderful! Excellent and very deep one-shot!

Kal, I love you. That COMPLETELY made my day. *hugs*

Oh, man! This is what I call true angst. I loved how you expressed Hermione's feelings, which went really well with her actions. I also liked how you described how each person had died, and Hermione's point of view of their death. I'll rate this 10/10 Well done and Keep it up!!

Author's Response: Wow! This was such a nce review! It certainly made my day =)

Wow! It is so emotional and you can picture every last detail of it. I saw it playing through my mind as I was reading it. Very deep. I love it!

Oh boy, did this turn out beautifully or what? It may have been hard work, but it was truly worth it. What can I say other than: two great minds, right?? Now, I just have to go read your other fic and see if it comapres. Your "lovely" beta thanks you for such a wonderful story! ;P

Author's Response: Aw, thank you! And just so you know, I don't have/want people to beta my other story - it's my first fic, my "baby," and I want it to be all my own. But yeah, thanks so much for working with me on Paradise!
