Yes, I am definitely glad that you weren't able to make a H/R fic. That would have been horrible. But this one was very, not so much fluffy, but warm, and it made me smile. Rather than cry. I liked the softer side of Harry that you showed, and the way Ron was so completely in character. Again, no complaints. Gee, I'm making a day of it, aren't I?
Author's Response: Thanks! Good thing I didn't make it slash, then. :P Then again, I dislike H/R for the same reason I dislike H/Hr. It's the best friend-thing. They're like siblings. It's just... no. To me, romance is romance, regardless of gender. Read Thirty-Nine, and you'll see what I mean. No sex there, I promise.
I'm very happy you enjoyed it! Thank you so much for a lovely review, once again!
Impressive, Maia dearest ... simply impressive.
What struck me most about the story is the way you manage to keep both Harry and Ron in-character and explore their emotions at the same time. They don't sound feminine (thank goodness) and that is obviously not easy to pull off. But you've done it well. Awesome job!
He was absentmindedly flicking pebbles at a gnome that kept re-emerging from behind a bush ever so often.
This is a nice sentence in the first paragraph. It seems to lend a sense of realism to this fic, showing Harry doing something in an idle manner which hasn't been projected in canon; yet perfectly believable.
This made him think of how clueless both he and Ron had been to Hermione’s hints and advances. An entire romantic drama had taken place right in front of Harry’s nose, without Harry noticing anything, really. He smiled even more.
Nice job with the obvious Ron/Hermione hint. It made me giggle for a while. I like the way you manage to slip in something comical in an emotional fic.
The friendly bond between Harry and Ron in canon is strong, and it comes out stronger in this little fic. I loved the hug, by the way. It didn't feel girly at all to me; just a sign of their eternal friendship. This is instantly going into my favourites!
The only thing I'm not entirely satisfied with is the length of the fic; I wish it could have been a little longer. In spite of that, the story is really cute. I love it!
Author's Response: OMG! I can't believe I haven't responded yet! Thanks for an amazing review, as usual! I don't really know what I can say to a review like that except thank you very much! I'm so very happy you enjoyed this fic as well. :)
Very emotional, and good.
Author's Response: Thanks a lot, I'm glad you liked it!
Good to see a fellow Queen fanatic! I like what you're doing with the series; I'll be interested to see what you do with Bohemian Rhapsody. You've got a good command of language and phrasing. If you're this good at 18, you're going to be downright scary at 35. Keep at it!
Author's Response: Thanks a lot! You're boosting my ego to the stratosphere, my friend. Hm, not everyone's gonna lik Bohemian Rhapsody. It's already done; I just want to post them in the right order. Bohemian Rhapsody was the first one I wrote. I'm not sure everyone's gonna like it, because it has strong elements of slash in it. But if that doesn't scare you off, you're welcome to keep reading! :) Thanks a lot for reviewing; I'm overjoyed that you enjoyed it.
Aw, that was really good. =] You seemed to convey them perfectly, and it's so cute how they're best friends. Not that they weren't to begin with, but how you, like, showed it? =]
Author's Response: Thanks a lot for your review! I think that the feeling of Ron and Harry's friendship is very important in Harry Potter, so I love elaborating on it. Glad you liked it too!
