I loved this! Wonderful job.
This fic made me feel so many emotions and it was so well written too. All the characters seemed themselves even in the unusual situation. Except perhaps George, but thats understandible, especially since he had the stone. And the last beit with Ron and Hermione and Harry and Ginny so made sense. I felt like laughing when he realised and just said he loved her. I think a great author makes you feel, so thanks.
This is the type of "ending" that I wished Jo would have written. A descriptive part with loads of details and information that told us what happened after the Final Battle and stuff. I loved the H/G and Hr/R parts you added. Just perfect. You did an amazing job. GREAT JOB!
I LOVE. I have been waiting for a story like this since the release of DH. It's like 'the missing chapter' before JK's epilogue. Well Done!! =]*
Author's Response: Thank you! That is such high flattery! In any case, I hope it gave you the same bit of closure as it did for me.
oh my god, i loved this! this is one of the best pieces of writing i've had the pleasure of reading in a long time. everything fit so well together. it was spectacular. the humor, the sorrow, all of it. i'll be sure to keep an eye out for any future fics you write.
Author's Response: Thanks :-) I'm so pleased that you all have enjoyed it so much!
Ron's speech was one of the best I've ever read!
Author's Response: Aww, thanks! I was hoping it would turn out being very canon for Ron's character. You all seem to be pleased with it :-)
If you're really into Ron speeches, this is an excerpt from one of my very favorite fictions:
As Ron stalked toward her, Hermione dropped the rest of her books on the floor. She grasped for a wand that was not on her belt, and said, “Ronald, I don’t want to hear anything you have to sayyyyiee…Ronald! RON!”
She screeched that last as Ron bodily picked her up and put her sitting in a chair. Looking up at him in disbelief, Hermione sunk lower into the cushioning as Ron loomed over her. He had gotten quite large, actually.
“Hermione,” Ron began calmly, but with his teeth grinding so hard that Harry could hear them squeak from across the room, “I am not very good at doing this, and everything I say around you seems to come out wrong half the time. So I want you to pretend…”
Hermione opened her mouth as if to protest, and Ron bellowed, “PRETEND!!!!!” She snapped her mouth shut with a click of her teeth.
Hehe. It truly is wonderful. It's called "Very Grand Gestures" by seomensnowlocke. I would very highly reccommend it!
Author's Response: It's on fanfiction.net, by the way.
Author's Response: Glad you enjoyed it!
Thanks for a nice wrap up to tie up some loose ends. I thought all of your characters were true to form. I find that this can be difficult when writing someone else's characters.
Author's Response: Yes, it can be incredibly difficult sometimes. I actually spent quite some time on this one reading and re-reading it multiple times to make sure everybody was in character.
Don't get me wrong--I LOVED Deathly Hallows, but yes, I did feel that there were some topics I needed closure on and some loose ends to tie up. I hope it settled some unfinished business for all of you!
*sniff* good story!!
Author's Response: :-) Thanks for reading! Glad you were pleased!
I really want to read this, but I have an eye problem (I'm half blind) and I couldn't possibly attempt to read this without paragraph breaks without completeing straining my eyes....*pouts*
I'll check it out later...
Author's Response: I'm so sorry, I didn't realize that something had gone terribly wrong with the formatting! I think it's fixed now. Please try again :-)
Oh my gosh! That was amazing! I got teary-eyed in parts and I don't usually get teary-eyed when I read, but you set the mood amazingly!
Thanks for writing that!
Author's Response: I'm so glad you liked it! I don't know how you ever managed to read it all scrunched together like that...I don't know what went wrong with the paragraph breaks!
wow. excellentt =)
Author's Response: Glad you enjoyed it :-)
Good story. The only complaint I have is that it needs to have more paragraphs. Its somewhat hard to follow without breaks in the story.
Author's Response: I haven't the slightest idea how it got so bunched together. I think it's fixed now though. I hope you enjoyed it despite the mix-up.
The story is too difficult to read without spacing between paragraphs.
Author's Response: Sorry, I think it's fixed now. Something happened to my line breaks. Before I submitted the chapter it looked fine but came out published like this. Please try again.
Very well written, but next time, break your story into manageable paragraphs, please.
Author's Response: Sorry, some sort of mishap with the formatting. Glad you enjoyed it nevertheless.
Wonderful! I loved it, especially with the Resurrection Stone and George's reaction to his brother's death. :D
Author's Response: I'm so glad! Yeah, I think that was the hardest part to write...I wanted to keep it emotional but realistic at the same time, avoiding making it too corny. Looks like it turned out all right!
Paragraphs are NOT optional.
Author's Response: Think this over very carefully. Obviously it was a formatting error and not due to blatant idiocy. I've been writing a long time, and I'm sorry that something went wrong with the spacing--The "preview chapter" page looked fine before submission, but evidently something occurred to smash it all back together between then and now. Don't be so rude, thanks.
This was really good! I thought it was kind of annoying in Deathly Hallows how it didn't show what happened to anyone else right after that final battle.
The only thing I think you should change about your story is to break it into smaller paragraphs. It would make it easier to read. Everytime someone says something, that's a new paragraph.
Other then that, I really enjoyed this story!
Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Yes, I know all about the paragraphs, haha...I'm sorry for the mix up. I do indeed know how to format it, though I know it doesn't appear that way! I'm not sure what I did wrong when I submitted it, but I suppose my original spacing went all astray. I'll have to look at it more carefully next time.
But thank you very much for your patience!
Awwww...love the ending!
The rest of the story was awesome as well--the best past-epilogue story i've read. And thank you for keeping cannon!
Author's Response: I certainly tried to keep everybody in character. I am thrilled that you enjoyed it so much!
I loved this! All the details seemed to fit together very well and your writing was so intricate that it made it seem like it really was the missing chapter from DH. My favorite part was with George and the stone and him putting his trust in Harry.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! That's such high flattery to say that it actually felt like a piece of the true novel. I'm so glad you liked the bit with George, because it was so difficult to write and keep in character. Also, kudos to you for being able to read it despite the unidentified formatting mishap!
