I've been following this story since the first chapter. I like how you allowed Ron to grieve in his own way. And you accurately captured how uncomfortable it made others when a Ron didn't grieve how they thought he should - just as it happens in real life. Well done!

Author's Response: We all grieve differently and nobody, unless they've experienced it, can understand what it's like to loose someone you love dearly. Ron did it is way, wether is was the right way or the wrong way I don't know. I did the best I could with what I understood of his character. Thanks for leaving a review!

I am officially a mess! I loved this story and have been sobbing since the last chapter. Would you ever think of writing a sequel written from Harry's perspective or even Hermione's? I think that would be really interesting.
You have a beautiful gift for writing meladrama well and capturing the characters we all love continuing on after the HBP. Thanks again for a beautiful job!

Author's Response: You're the second reviewer suggesting a sequel/epilogue and I must say I never thought about it before I read it. To me it was those six chapters and that's it. But the more I think about it, the more I like the idea. I'll just have to see if I can come up with enough interesting stuff to make something worthy out of it. I particularly like the idea you had about somebody else's point of view. *scratches her head* We'll see. For now, there's another story I want to work on before maybe giving this a try. Still, I am NOT commitnig to anything. I don't know yet if I'll try to write a sequel or a side story (complement to this one). Anyway! Thanks you for your lovely review! Writing in character was a real concern for me, especially Harry. I wasn't originally planning him to appear in any chapter, but I ended up giving him a minor role when I decided to add chapter four and it took me a long time to decide to include him in the last chapter. I feel like there's a part of him I don't quite catch or understand well enough to write him in character so I kind of avoid him having a major play. That's why I'm please to read you think they were in character. This response is way too long! lol so. thanks again! and sorry if this is a mess, I need some sleep!

I am new to MNFF but I must say that your story moved me the most of many, many R/H stories. Hermione's goodbye letter should be rated as a classic love letter, and had me in tears for ages. Please write more!!!

Author's Response: *sighs* thank you sooo much. Reviews like this make me want to keep going and motivate me to keep writing. This might be just a silly hobby but if it makes people happy or if they appreciate it then it's well worth the effort and headache! Keep on reading fanfiction, there are true pearls in here!

I'm crying right now, just so you know. Perfect, perfect ending.

Author's Response: It took me weeks, literally, to write this chapter. From the first draft to this, I'd say less than 10% made it to the end. Hard work pays off, even if it makes you want to give up from times to times.

It's over?! (sis's account) Noo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

I loved that, it was so sad... but why does everyone killl off Hermione!? *sniff* Poor Hermes... I locved it.

Author's Response: because I can't bring myself to kill Ron and just try to imagine if the situation was reversed... would ron have done the same thing? somehow, it turns to almost a humour story in my head when I think about it. but thanks for the review, I'm glad you loved it.

aww, i think you should some how get hermione back lol i feel so bad. i was on the verge of crying, but i stopped myself before i cryed onto the keyboard and make it go berzerk. I think your story is TOO sad. make it happier! haha

Author's Response: hard for me to make it happier now that it's done! I didn't intend it to be happy in the first place either and there's defenitely no way hermione could come back. I want to precise that I really really really don't want her to die in the last bookl. Nor Ron. Nor Harry. Nor Lupin. Nor...

Oh, and one more thing, you should add another period after "P.S" so that it's "P.S." :D OMG I'm still very sad... :'(

Author's Response: I'll do that. Thanks for the tip!

Author's Response: Done!

i said that I would only say it once so I wiil. I'll put it into a different context though.. you could give William Shakespere a run for his money!

Author's Response: ... I really don't know what to say. Thanks!!!!!!!!! I am just a, well, a nobody compared to this legend. I'm very humbled by this high praise. Thank you very very much.

I'm sorry if there are typos here because my eyes are all blurry and I can hardly see. That was a perfect ending... So sad! The last couple paragraphs were very... moving. You should write an epilogue or a sequel or something. *Sobs for a couple seconds* Why is it over?! It's just not fair! *Sobs some more* You must write more! *Goes into a dark corner and weeps*

Author's Response: don't be so upset... in my mind, the last chapter was definitely the last one. Maybe an epilogue... but I don't know. I'm not sure. The 6th chapter was soooo hard. We'll see. I'm not commiting to anything here. Still, I'm happy you like the story and I hope you'll get out of the dark corner soon *hands a tissue* And thanks for keeping me in track and motivated in the hard times!

Wow..... Ok so I'm a pretty emotional person, but the 5th chapter made me tear up..... and that's the first time it happened because of a story. Ron and Hermione (and all the others) were.... how do you say the opposite off OOC? I love your writing!

Author's Response: opposite of occ would be 'in character'. I'm glad you thought they were in character, I try hard to keep them true to themselves (I keep far from characters I don't understand well just to be sure) thanks for leaving a review! *hugs*

Yay! You got a beta! I hope it works and the next chapter gets validated really soon. BTW, who's your new beta?

Author's Response: Her name is Melissa and she told me I should have it back by the end of the week. Then it will be time to make the last touch ups depending on her comments and then to the queue!
