Oh, this was absolutely wonderful! It's definitely going in my favorites. I love the progression through the years: "You were the boy for me," and then, "You were the man for me."
One of the best parts about this is that it can be read by either one of the sexes, and identified with. We don't know if Seamus's admirer is a girl or a boy, so anyone who reads this can connect.
Now, for the parts I especially loved:
"Some may call me a stalker the way I watched you.
It all depends on your definition, I guess," - I particularly liked this because the cadence of the stanzas just flowed. It was song-like in its cohesion and it's ... rhythm. Beautiful. =)
"I knew that you knew that I knew." MEGASQUEE! Just absolutely beautiful. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we all had that feeling? Really lovely.
As I said before, this is definitely going in my favorites. Thank you for this poem!
Author's Response: Yay! Thank you for the wonderfully gorgeous long review! I'm so glad you liked the poem, I don't write poetry much, so this wasn't exactly thought out. But still, so glad you enjoyed it, and especially that you saw the ambiguity that I was trying for, and that you favorite parts were my favorite parts and the easiest to write! Thanks again!
wait............ did seamus DIEEEEEEEEEE!?!?!?!?!?!!?!? noooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: Haha! *apologizes hastily for evil laugh*. Not necessarily. I meant for the ending to be up to interpretation. Hence, "It all depends on your definition," this line applies to the whole poem.
This really did come out brilliantly. Oh, how I love poetry! Great job, again. I absolutely love how it turned out. Good luck on future fics/poems! =)
Author's Response: I just can not seem to say thank you enough!
Great job! I also love Seamus, he's one of my favorite chracters. Keep it up!
Author's Response: Thank you! I really enjoyed giving a "minor" character a little of the glory!
very cute! The idea of 'Seamus/Me' didn't appeal to me at first, but you did it nicely without making it cliched. And I liked how even when he was fighting with Harry you understood why. Its good to see the minor characters get some props- good job!
Author's Response: *Jumps for joy* Thanks, I considered making it Seamus/OC, would that have made more sense? Oh well, for some reason "Me" seemed more ambiguous, which is what I was going for. I'm glad you got over your initial hesitation and read it, and liked it!
