nice, i loved how each girl picked up a flower that they in turn used to name their little girls in the future... i thought it was adorable. Foreshadowing much? :D good job.

That was just... beautiful. Really, it seems almost like a poem. The flow of the words was just incredible.
Waves of bright fire danced in the light of the setting sun, bathing the whole scene in a blood-red glow. The waves curled and tumbled down silky pale gold cloth, and sea blue eyes provided cool contrast to the hotness of the fiery hair.
That has to be my favorite paragraph! It's just so... perfect. Sorry for the fragmented review, I'm still in a daze lol.

You give a whole new look into the Ron/Hermione pairing. Usually, it's Hermione loving Ron despite his faults (which usually, the author feels compelled to mention, and which I find very odd,) but here, I felt like they were on equal footing. The "wedding" kiss was so beautiful! I sighed out loud when I read it!

Harry and Ginny's rencounter was as poetic as the first! I must say though, that your description of Ginny's eyes kept dancing around, so unless she kept changing her contacts, I felt that you should have kept to one color. The whole feeling of serenity in the scene was amazing. I kind of wish that there was more action in the scene (okay, I really wanted them to kiss!) but to have more would ruin it.

This is where you truly have mastered the art of the mood, I am sure because I can never remember reading a piece and feeling so relaxed and so lulled by the words. This story reminds me of a lullaby--very soft and loving but with life. Fantastic job!

Sweet story! I like that you can feel the emotions, even without them saying anything.

Whoa...I love how there's no dialogue. Some people might complain, and they might be right - but there's a time for dialogue and there's a time for action and description. This was that action and description time, and you did it wonderfully, portraying the scene with a sort of eerie and ethereal beauty. You chose amazing words that really showed to me what was happening - i.e. flourish, envisioned, intertwined, exuberance...amazing job. You have a wonderful vocabulary. :-)

Hmm...yes, I know people have said that Ginny's eyes are brown, but I want to talk about the descriptions you gave her eyes, anyway. Forget the color.

Sea blue and icy blue and irresistible blue. They are all vivid descriptions, but since you chose so many different ones, I kept seeing Ginny's eyes as a different shade of blue. *smiles, embarrassed* Just saying that you might want to stick with a description and go with it. Otherwise, they were all very vibrant…it is just that they were different.

Okay, sorry, but I wanted to offer concrit and that jumped out at me...

I like how you said that if stories had colors, yours would be scarlet...very apt of you to say so! I went back and reread this story with scarlet in mind, and everything was different and so much better! Amazing...(actually, now that I think about it, I have a story that would be red and black...weird, sorry, that just popped into my head, moving on.)

Okay, sorry again, now I'm being nitpicky...*berates self*

...but quickly recovered and squeezed back, tentatively giving her a small smile. She smiled back...
I just think using 'back' twice in these two sentences sounded a little repetitive...

I love the feel of this fic, too - the small, simple gestures performed were transformed into something new, something never seen before, something magical...this is a wonderful Ron/Hermione AND Harry/Ginny fic. You showed their feelings as if you had been inside their heads, and you did it without using too many words and needless phrases. The meaning you conveyed was concise, to the point, and powerful - it actually reminded me of poetry, but in prose. You have such a way with words!

(Okay, sorry for such a long ramble...)

Author's Response: Wow. Thanks so much for taking the time to leave such a wonderful review! Thanks for all the concrit, you're so right about it all. I really need to find a beta. I am so glad you enjoyed it--and maybe I'll go back and edit a few things, because now that you've brought it to my attention, I do see some things that could be touched up... Anyway, thank you, thank you, for that amazing review!

Hi...well that was a very beautifully-written story! You know it's the first time I'm reading a romantic story here, I'm usually into humourous ones, but I'm glad I read this!

I appreciate your style of writing; it's very artistic, kind of, like a poet's. You know, like describing Ginny's blue eyes and the whole rose-affair. It was very nicely described, as I've already said.

I do hope I'm correct in understanding this, but doesn't this story tell us that Ron and Hermione did get together, but not Harry and Ginny? I mean, I'm not entirely sure, but the way you've written that their hands dropped and it was over and that it is better to love and lose than to not love at all, made me think.

Anyways, enough of my randomness...lol.....great story and I think you should definitely submit some of the stories you've got written down (yeah I saw ur profile!)

Author's Response: I love long reviews! So I give them long responses. ;) Thanks for giving my story a chance even though it was outside of your usual genre. I'm glad you liked it; I would hate to give romance a bad name! I used to read only romances, but then I read one comedy and I've been reading them ever since. I was experimenting with a new style when I wrote this one; it is very more a romantic, poetry-like style than my usual way of writing. I was really trying to focus on description and setting. You're right, Ron and Hermione did get together, but Harry and Ginny did not. I do think they'll eventually get back together, but Harry's got a job to do, and they won't re-start their relationship until he does it. Hopefully he'll hurry up, and she'll be there waiting for him. :) Don't worry, I'm random all the time! ;) Oh, my pointless, boring profile...if only you'd seen the original, you'd think better of me! :D

That was so romantic. I loved the Ron/Hermione scene.

Author's Response: Aw, thanks! Actually, I originally just wrote the Ron/Hermione scene. But then I was afraid it wouldn't get validated because it was so short, so I added the other part and put it under Ron/Hermione AND Harry/Ginny.

After you reviewed my story, I simply had to stop by and admire yours. It is very different than other stories on MNFF, but that's what makes it very unique and special. The simplicity of what a flower can do, and a squeeze of the hand, is quite marvelous. Please, keep up the writing!

Author's Response: Aw, thanks! I did love your story. Yeah, at first I wasn't sure if it would really fit in, but I did want to show the power of little guestures. I'm so glad you liked it!

In a word... wow. I love your imagry, and not having any dialogue really adds to the effect. again, wow.

Author's Response: Thank you! I do love a good wow.

This is awesome. So simple yet it describes how everyone knows the feelings of each party.

Author's Response: I did try to make it not too complicated. I'm so glad you like it. I was trying to focus more on their feelings without having to work around dialogue that doesn't always convey what I want it to. It was so much easier just to do away with dialogue altogether. Anyway, thanks for the review!

so sweet! i loved it! please do another.

Author's Response: Oh thanks! I have about a million ideas for fan fictions, but we'll have to see which ones stay ideas and which ones end up being good enough and having enough background to flesh out, and, hopefully, eventually get finished.

Wow. I think that both relationships are portrayed very well, and very believably! One thing, though... I think Ginny's eyes are brown. But the ice/water/fire imagery worked so well I didn't really mind them being blue! :)

Author's Response: Yeah, I've been informed on that point. *headdesk* But I really did want the sort of contrasting images, and it just sort of fit in my story. Thanks so much for saying you like it though.

very very beautiful. I really enjoyed your description of everything. It was so complete... so "visual." It was like i wasn't reading at all, but more like watching a movie through words. I would love to read more fics like this. Please write more!!

Author's Response: Geez, this is the kind of review writers like me live for (lol!). I'm so glad to know you felt that way about my story. It's good when a piece of writing does what its supposed to do. I've got some more fan fictions in the works, so keep your eyes out!

Author's Response: Actually, the prime element for me was doing it without dialogue. It makes for a better story in my case, you see. I'm still glad you liked it...
