Bravo! I'm not sure what to say other than beautifully written, well thought out, and good characterizing and emotion. :) I really enjoyed it.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! It's quite AU, obviously, but I'm glad you still read it and enjoyed it. I really appreciate the review, thank you! ~Gina :)
wow talk about a tear jerker! interesting concept...it just breaks my heart imagining Ron dying before he could tell Hermione how he really felt. Glad you decided to post this even though it didnt fit with the challenge : )
Author's Response: It is a bit sad, isn't it? I'm so glad Ron didn't die! Thank you for reading this story, even though it's obviously non-canon now. I'm glad you enjoyed it and I appreciate the review~ Gina :)
in the words of ron weasley - bloody hell . This is so full of emotion it took a lot not to cry once i had finished reading. Keep it up :')
Author's Response: Thank you for the review! I'm glad you enjoyed it, even if it is quite sad. Thanks so much for reading this story and for the lovely review! It's so nice to know people are reading older stories! ~Gina :)
Oh that was so sad, I almost cried. As in as I type the tears well up in my eyes. Oh look at that I've squeezed them out. Sadly there not big enough to run down my face, I have to be super caught for that, I probably would have been super caught up if I hadn't quit every two minutes because someone was looking over my shoulder.If I wasn't so choked up I'd tell you off for making Ron die, oh well I'll do it later. Anyway this is the first time I've cried because of what I've read on here, thats a great accomplishment. Be proud of this one, even if it does kill Ron.
-Windy who is choked up at the moment
Author's Response: Aren't you glad DH didn't really turn out that way for Ron? ;) Thank you for reading this story! *hands over tissues* I appreciate the kind review. I'm glad you liked the story--even if it did make you cry. ;) Thanks again! ~Gina :)
Wow! A tear jerker for sure. Great job!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad it didn't turn out this way - I don't know where this idea came from - but I'm glad you enjoyed it. Thank you for reading it and leaving such a nice review!! ~Gina :)
hey, me again. i just forgot to write this in my earlier review because i was busy sobbing - your writing style is perfect ... almost like j. k. r herself ... :)
please write more fics!!!
Author's Response: Wow, thanks for that compliment! I'm flattered (although, she does have her weaknesses...) I'm glad it didn't turn out this way, though. As for more fics - I have quite a few already up, and maybe another coming. Thanks again!! ~Gina :)
LOVE IT!! *sob sob* one of my favourites ... :)
keep up the great work.
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'm actually working on something for a challenge, we'll see how it goes. Thanks so much for reading this story (esp. after DH!) and leaving such a nice review! ~Gina :)
Awhhh! How do you expect me to review when Im crying?!
That was amazingly written, well done
Author's Response: Thank you very much! It obviously didn't turn out that way, but I'm glad you liked it. Thank you for reading this story and leaving such a nice review!! ~Gina :)
Gosh make me cry why dont you! That was beautiful **stands up and claps** i love your storys they are very nice!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm not sure I've gotten applause before. I appreciate the compliments, and thanks so much for the review!! ~Gina :)
*wipes tears from eyes*
That was beautiful! It was so touching and heart-breaking and joyful all at the same time. Gina, you did such an incredible job with Ron. I liked that he had heard Hermione's voice, reached out for her and held her. His wisdom, his actions, his words ll spoke of a Ron who had become all he was meant to be. He is a completed work.
Hermione made me feel her anguish and pain at the loss of Ron, and Harry was so good as the compassionate yet firm friend. Everything just seemed so perfct - yes Hermione would mourn greatly, yes Harry would watch over her as his best friend requested, and yes Ron would say goodbye in a simple, dignified, yet loving way.
You know I am not a HG/RW shipper by any stretch of the imagination, but this story is just too beautiful to worry about such small details.
Oh, I think I'm about to cry again!
Wonderful job, Gina - I truly loved it and think you did an exceptional job on this story.
Author's Response: Andrea! Thanks so much for reading this story, I'm glad it worked out for your class!! It is sort of sad, isn't it?*hands out more tissue* I'm glad you stuck with it, since I know you're not a big fan of Ron; but he turned out okay here, didn't he? ;) Thanks for the lovely comments, I really appreciate you chosing this story and leaving such a wonderful review! *huggle* ~Gina :)
I think I have written you a review before im not sure. this fan fic made me cry...alot. I thought that it was awesome. Your talented if you can make me cry I dont cry easily. :)
Author's Response: Thank you for the lovely compliment! I'm so glad you enjoyed this story, even if you did cry. Thank you for reading it and for leaving such a nice review!! ~Gina :)
Awe...so sad!!! I loved it, good job!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm really glad you liked it, it was hard to kill Ron but I think it's definitely possible in this last book. Hopefully something like this won't play out because I want to see Ron and Hermione live happily ever after. Thank you so much for reading this and for the lovely review!! ~Gina :)
Oh my god. I'm a flat out crying.
Author's Response: HI there, abbs866! Yes, it's a bit of a tear-jerker, isn't it? *hands out tissue* Thanks so much for reading this story, though, and I really appreciate all of your lovely reviews! Now go read something cheerful! ;) ~Gina :)
This was excellent. It was touching and must bring anyone who reads it to tears. You captured the love and pain one feels when a love one dies absolutely perfectly. I loved how Ron decided to come back to her and say one final good bye before he left and let her get on with her life. I also adored the metaphor of the last line. All in all, a phenomenal piece.
Author's Response: Wow, thank you for the wonderful review! I really appreciate the compliments. *blushes* There have been a lot of comments about becoming a bit teary reading this story; I wish I could remember whether I did while writing it! I tend to view these types of stories as more happy than sad albeit in a bittersweet way. I had a very strong visual image of Ron's hand taking Hermione's through the veil for that one last time, in a way that let them both move on. Thank you so much for reading this story, and for such a great review!! ~Gina :)
So sad and touching - I really shouldn't read this type at work - they brings tears. Good story.
Author's Response: Thank you for reading this story! Yes, I have written a few that are best read at home with some Kleenex. ;) I hope you enjoyed it - thank you for the lovely review!! ~Gina :)
that was an amazing one-shot. it actually made me cry. you have a wonderful imagination and you are excellent at expressing it. keep writing!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed the story, I know it is sad. My imagination seems drawn to stories where loved one reach out from beyond the veil. I absolutely plan on still writing and hope you will read some of my other stories. Thank you for reading this story and for the great review! ~Gina :)
This is sensational writing. I applaud you fiercely. I just wish that this doesn't happen in book 7!
Author's Response: Wow, thank you for the compliment and applause. I really appreciate the kind words! I'm glad you enjoyed this story. I don't think it will happen in Book Seven; I see this as more of an Epilogue to that story. Of course, I do hope Ron survives, but I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't. We will know soon enough! Thanks for reading this and for leaving such a lovely review! ~Gina :)
oh, this story was absolutley amazing. i was crying so hard the whole time! i could really visualize everything. beautifully done! great job.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I am so glad you could visualize this story, because it came to me as a very strong visual image (Ron reaching through the veil) and so hopefully I've conveyed that to readers. It is sad, though. *sigh* Thank you for reading this story, and for leaving such a wonderful review!! ~Gina :)
Good story, but it made me cry and I dont like that. :)
Author's Response: Oops, double - post! Thanks again! ~Gina :)
Good story, but it made me cry and I dont like that. :)
Author's Response: Well, you are not the only one! *hands out more tissues* I hope you enjoyed it a bit. Thanks for reading and leaving a review! ~Gina :)
