wow this story is great... love the ending, very well done!!
Author's Response: Thank you! The ending was my favourite part to write, besides the childbirth conversation.
WOW that was brill!
Author's Response: Oh, thanks!
Wow schmergo, I am officially speechless. This story deserves the best review I can give so I'll give one later, you know, as soon as I think of something worthy of it.=Sammy
Author's Response: Thank you! ^_^ I'll be looking forward to it!
Loved this. I think Fred and George were kept in character. And I heart Fred's last line. It's so witty. One of the best post-Fred's-death fic I've ever read. Well done, you (:
Author's Response: Thank you! I was hoping that Fred and George were in-character because, as fun as they are, we never really saw their full character in canon, and I didn't know how Fred would express jealousy, or how George would act as an adult. I'm so glad you liked it!
I LOVE this story. Very well written, great dialogue, and really funny.
Thanks for it! :)
Author's Response: Thank you! I had a lot of fun with it!
Wow. Long for a one-shot but it was sooo good, seriously. Absolutely fantastic. I could go on praising all the things I like but it would take far too long, so I might as leave it at what I don't like, which is much shorter. Considerably. In fact, not anything about the writing at all. So, congratualtions on a job fantastically and singularly well done.
Author's Response: Thank you so much, Leah! It was long, but I finished it so close to the deadline, I couldn't risk breaking it up into more chapters. You really made my day!
Psst... the entire thing is in italics. Oopsie! ^^;
I loved the description of dying and heaven and such. Perfect.
And WHERE did you even get the idea for this? Really, now. It’s so ORIGINAL. And CREATIVE. And CAPS LOCK worthy.
“I’m sorry?” said Dumbledore mildly. “I was momentarily distracted by this fascinating bit of carpet fluff and didn’t catch a word of what you just said.” That’s a perfect characterisation of Dumbledore, right there. I laughed out loud at that.
And I absolutely LURVE the references to dead people — John Lennon, Martin Luther King Jr., etc. That’s just really awesome.
“Mum, I promise I won’t get in a sword fight with anyone with a peg leg and an octopus beard. And I’ll hardly ever fire the cannon at anyone, and I’ll try not to get marooned on a rum-filled island.” HA. Pirates of the Caribbean reference, anyone? ^_~
The idea of George buying his remaining ear an earring and “treating it right” is really fantastic. Little details like that make your stories great.
And her carnivorous plants were big softies, really, once they got used to you and they stopped trying to eat you. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You should have seen how hard I laughed at that! Tears came to my eyes! (I laugh at really odd things. ‘Tis part of being Katie.)
Awwwwwwwww. I feel bad for Fred! Missing out on George’s wedding and all... that’s sad. :(
At least he was better off than Charlie–the poor man’s middle name was ‘Nazi.’ Tee hee. ‘Charlie Nazi Weasley.’ Oh, I can see the jokes coming now... ^_^
“Albus Severus,” said Fred. “I remember how much Dumbledore laughed. I wish I could’ve seen the look on Snape’s face, though. He’d probably die again.” I feel bad for Albus Severus. What kind of a name IS that, anyway? What’ll Harry name his next kid, ‘Dobby Hedwig’? I can see Dumbledore laughing at that, though.
“Eat my shorts.” You know, I think I might claim those for my last words. Much better than “Look at me” or “Severus... please...” or anything like that.
I got a little misty-eyed there at the end when George died and came to Heaven, ‘cause it was sad and yet awesome at the same time.
Also, I know you’ve been working on Eglantine in our OC Class, and I’ve got to say, she’s a really believable OC. It’s obvious that you know everything about her and that you put a lot of time and effort into creating her character — and it really makes the story better.
Basically, this was an awesome one-shot. I hope you win the challenge!
Author's Response: Thanks so much, Katie! I just un-italicized it... hehehehe.... I got the idea as soon as I read DH. I was talking to my friend about how sad I was that Fred was dead... then I thought, "Well, what if he can talk to George through his disembodied ear, huh?" I had a lot of fun with this story. There wasn't really THAT much about Eglantine, as the story's really about Fred and George, but you will see more of her to come!
