That was so SAD!!! I'm so sorry about all your friends and your grandpa! Great story, I loved it! I've been waiting for a story like this to come out... And I really felt for George there, I loved Fred too!

... I can't believe I only just realized that Alicia must be Alicia Spinnet (now Weasley)... Whoa, I'm sad.

Author's Response: Lol, I chose Alicia last minute because of Kerichi's fic, For Bitter or For Worse...Thanks for all of the reviews you have left me for my stories. I really am honored and grateful. I think we all loved Fred. So sad...

*near fainting* How do you people come up with stuff like this? *stares at her vanishing plot bunny*

*now grins like a maniac*

Loved every alphabet, every word, phrase, sentence, paragraph! Brilliantly expressed with the sweetest emotions in the world.

I love all those writers and their stories that circulate around those “little things” in life. Tomato seeds! I’m touched, really. It is one of the most beautiful fictions I have ever read.

Now you’ll say I named all of them, but *grins* do you leave me a choice? I specially liked the Sirius and Remus parts, then George and Andromeda and Teddy too!!!

It is a very sad story but unlike many others, I didn’t cry when I read Tomato Seeds.

In fact, I was smiling. There is a tragedy that makes you cry, which is sad itself. But I think there is a very rich and beautiful aspect to any tragedy too. This goes for the time when I think about Lily sacrificing her life for Harry. The sentiment is so strong and touching, that I tend to start viewing it from the emotional point of view.

Mudblood428’s ‘Mum, Dad, Its Me Harry’ was the first ever fiction in which I sat crying for an hour! I love Tomato Seeds as much, but cherish it in a very different, unique way, that is felt equally strongly. And of course ‘OMG’ was the only utterance from my mouth for a long time as I sat in otherwise a very Gin_Drinka’s-story-induced dazed silence.

I love the way you link “the little thing” throughout the story. I can even relate to certain parts of the fiction, which makes me even more attached to it. Characterization was awesome and very skillfully done.

Keep it up!

Awesome piece.


Author's Response: Oh my goodness, what a spectacular review. I grinned so much when I read this. Thanks! Some people cried when reading this, they told me, but I sort of agree it's not the crying sort of fic. Of course it is sad, and tragic, but I try to always put a little bit of hope in any story that I write, no matter how sad it gets. Thanks a wonderful and extremely flattering review. I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

Oh, how he hated finishing his own sentences.

Very angsty, in a lovely way, that tightens the throat and brings a melancholy smile. No one could hate this, so I demand you change that to especially if you enjoyed it! :)

Author's Response: Lol, thanks for the demand. It's an honor to me that you read my story and actually liked it.

'The ones you miss the most, because they’re the things that just can’t be replaced.'

Excellent line.

You did a very good job, and made me cry for almost every little story!

Author's Response: I'm so glad you were touched. Thanks.

Chapter: Tomato Seeds

Wow. WOW that was beautiful. Really, well and truly beautiful. Most grief fics I've seen feature heavy crying, sobbing, hugging, and angst by the bucketloads. But while that is all fine and good, this rings truer for me. For grief really is all about the little things: the tiny, seemingly insignificant habits and quirks which one doesn't really notice until they are gone. In a world of mournful wailing, your beautiful picture of quiet sadness and remembrance stands above the rest. There's really nothing I can criticize about this.


Author's Response: Wow. What a nicely put review. Thanks very much, I really appreciate it. Grief really is about the little things. The bigger picture is bearable if you think about it. It's the little things that get us.

Very lovely. It is both sad and happy at the same time. I like the hope that each character is finding, while trying to deal with death.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. That's what we always look for: hope.

That was wonderful, really well written! I thought the second part, with Lupin after Sirius' death, and the part with George and the socks were particularly moving....seeing as those were the hardest deaths for me in the Deathly Hallows. A beautiful tribute...

Author's Response: Yeah...those were hard for me too...thanks for a really nice review.
