I'm not sure how to feel now, this was so beautiful and yet so sad. But i'm guessing that Harry and Ginny whereever they are would love to see their family happy. And i'm so glad Charlie and Verity are getting together too, not sure how the long distance will affect their relationship though, perhaps Charlie could get a job working with Dragons in the UK? Now look, see what you've started, my imagination is running wild, next i'll have Fred and George open an overseas branch of WWW's for Verity to Run.
wow!!! i loved htis story nd to think tht charlie found someone!!! lol! i love how u gave someone to harlie who usually is lft out tht is great~
It was good. Very original. I loved the snowball fight.
I don't know if there is a prequel to this, or if this is a sequel. But it was a little hard to follow at times, with names of non-canon characters and such.
Charlie is how I always pictured him, there isn't much about him in the books, but that is how I think he would be.
You captured the post war feeling very well. Harry and Ginny both dead...(wipes tears away)
The growing of Charlie and Verity as a couple was nice, I like that she is a Squib, it adds depth to her.
Overall I like it! Two thumbs up!
If I had to describe this story in one word, it would be sweet. The ending was lovely. At first I was also confused by the favor and Hermione thing, but in the reviews below mine, I thin you cleared that up. A very good story, and a very creative plot. 10/10
Author's Response: Thank you very much Hermy! I'm glad you liked the story. And thanks for the compliment on plot.
This was lovely, joanna! I can't believe I didn't read it sooner...seeing as I beta-ed a different installment! Well, it was my loss. You did a great job with characterization. Even Charlie's friend (was it Bertram?) jumps off the page. I quite enjoyed his hexing George! And how sweet of him to pick up on what was bothering Hermione, and to find a way to fix it. Since she was so perceptive of his feelings earlier, it seemed just right. You know, I didn't even notice that Ginny and Harry were missing until it came up. *shakes head* But their headstone inscription was lovely. Although I think Ginny's name is 'Ginevra.' The ending was perfect, with just that soft kiss. Wonderful fic, joanna! I can't wait to see more about these sisters!
Author's Response: Oh, Lys! Thank you for making my day! I have already read your review three times, so glad I am! I shall correct Ginny's name. *ashamed*. I liked to work with Bertram a lot and the sisters of Verity too. Thanks again for taking the time to review, I'm glad you enjoyed it.
I felt warm inside when I read the last part; Verity sliding her hand into Charlie's and the light kiss. *Feels fuzzy inside*
You did a great job on the characterization. Even though we didn't see much of Mrs. Weasley I really think you nailed her. I love how you portrayed Verity. Her character fitted her name very well. It's funny, I already imagined her sisters names being along the same lines as the one you wrote. It's like their names portray dreams and fantasies, while Verity's name portray the 'real world', the truth.
I do have two minor nitpicks:
'a young owl with a bit funny look to it.'
Shouldn't it be 'a bit of a funny look', or just no bit.
Plus, I'm pretty sure Ginny's full name is spelled Ginevra not Guinevra ;-)
But all in all a delightful read. *Rushes off to use Ginny/Blaise banner*
Author's Response: Thank you for the review, Foxy. I shall correct the mistakes. Enjoy the banner!
“But Charlie―” “Mum, please,” he implored. Why was Mrs. Weasley protesting? The characters were very well written out. You did a good job with this part. “How important is that information to you?” George asked. Charlie drew his wand in a flash, stunned George on the spot and then turned to Fred, who was looking at the rigid body of his twin. “Well, obviously it’s very important,” he stated then made a movement with his hand. “She lives just behind the store,” You know, I didn't notice the absence of Harry and Ginny until the middle of the snowball fight. I am a bit lost as to what favor Charile asked her, how exactly was Hermoine involved in it? I enjoyed reading it and you did a good job.
Author's Response: Thank you for reviewing Blackfoot. I hope your project is going well. As for your questions: Mrs Weasley was protesting because she knew how hard it is to be a Squib and that it would be hard for Charlie to have a Squib as a girlfriend. Hermione was in distress about Ginny and Harry and Charlie noticed this. He asked Verity to somehow cheer her up. I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for taking the time to review.
