I love this story. All that vulnerability and humanity that you found so hard to write paid off, and I keep coming back to it.
I've wondered now and again--what else might happen? If Consequentially Yours and Oliver hadn't come along? I suppose that's another mark of a good story; that it makes the reader speculate.
tears in my eyes
One of the best, if not THE best fanfic ive ever read.
I just read it again, and I had to review again, because the other may have been cut short.... It is the most wonderful love story I have read in this site, with just about one that can match it. It touched me in such a way... you could not imagine. I have never really paid much attention to Seamus before, but you made hime my second favorite character (Ron and Hermione together in the first place) just with this story... Do you know the dedication it takes to everyone who knows to change my mind, even slightly? Beautiful, wonderful, breathtaking... you are gifted! (oh and the languages thing, it is not big deal, Spanish is my native one, I learned English at school (and Harry Potter books helped loads) and I'm Halfway through learning French, which is not that hard to me, given it is similar to Spanish)
Anyway, marvelous, you are the best, you and Seamus both!!
That was amazing and im almost left speechless.
The ending just worked so well anf you writing is impeccable.
How do I possibly review this, dearest? It breaks my heart to even read it, let alone analyze it. *hugs* This story, born of too much wine and too late an hour, touches my soul in a way that few things do.
Seamus' pain and Hermione's confusion are just so very real to me. I can feel their emotions because you've just written them so well, and you can't convince me that you haven't been in some kind of similar situation to write it so well.
As far as I can tell, it fits seamlessly into the CY Universe, which is a Universe that I dare not dabble in, save to beta, for fear I would ruin it - I merely play along with it.
*hugs* This is utterly beautiful and heart-breaking and I don't know what else to say about it.
Author's Response: Do you know - after our conversation, this started as nothing more than an image, really, except not even an image - because it was from Seamus's point of view that I kept seeing everything ;-p It made it that much more difficult, as I had to constantly switch everything in my head, because I think it comes across better from Hermione's point of view. But I just couldn't shake that not-quite image. ;-p
I did this for you, because you are so much a part of the CY Universe - you've made it a much better story :-)
I loved it too much! It is one of the most intense stories I've read... sometimes I felt as though I was there with them... not in the gross way of course... I think you are very talented, I would love to read more Hermione/Seamus, other fron the stories you have already writen... please write more! Seamus makes me even forget Ron... and I LOVE Ron. Anyway, it was great!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I shall certainly try to post more in the future :-)
I absolutely lovwe your stories.. i always find myself falling in love with the male leads and becoming breathless.
Author's Response: That is a lovely compliment - Thank you! ;-)
AMAZING! I loved every single sentence.

After finding Consequentially Yours, I went to your Bio page and have read everything you've written on here (I think.) I love your writing, it disarmingly invites (or perhaps forces?) me to live in the world you've created. The way you write is so vivid that I (like your first reviewer) almost feel that I am intruding on the characters and have to look away for a moment before continuing. I hope you continue to write (especially Consuquentially Yours which is easily my favorite fic ever), I will continue to read anything you submit.
Author's Response: *hugs* Thank you so much!
I don't understand how you can write the Oliver Wood/Hermione story when you write Seamus/Hermione with so much passion. And I honestly don't know which pairing I like more; you make both pairings seem plausible at once. I love your style.
I understand the feeling that you could only write this in short bits of time--maybe I am a prude or something, but it got so emotional for me that i would have to stop reading and play a game of solitaire or minesweeper or think about something else for a minute...it just gets too intense. it's like, I can't watch, I can't watch this because i identify too much with hermione and I don't want anything bad to happen to her, because I just know that if it was me in that scene instead of hermione I would mess it up, and I want a happy and unembarrassing ending, and ...yeh. (I had the same feeling while reading the "just married" scene in Consequentially Yours, and it got so awkward it was like one of those movies you JUST CAN'T WATCH because you feel like you're intruding on the characters' privacy...and I wanted them to be happy so badly and hermione could have ruined it all, probably the same way i would've had i been in her situation, not like that's likely ever to happen...) I think that it's that in your stories, unlike in a lot of the stories out there, no one is guaranteed a happy ending. it's true suspense, at least for me. not the kind of fake suspense where you know they will end up together and you just want to know how. real, genuine, will-it-work-out fear and hope.
and everything you write in your one-shots makes me wonder why hermione and seamus don't get together in canon. it's so real. it's not even that you got the characters down. it feels like real human beings.
if hermione doesn't end up with seamus in this mini-world you have created, can you write something more about seamus? because i can see hermione with oliver wood as a second relationship...but I couldn't bear not knowing if seamus was happy or sad or alone or paired up or still in touch with hermione or not. these people are too human to have everything wrapped up neatly, but I would like to know what happens to him, even if he is pining away for the rest of his life. which I doubt, but I suppose it's possible.
thank you for this story!
Author's Response: *hugs*
Thank you so much, hon. I do love both boys, and I love how different they are, and yet they both still work so well with Hermione.
I don't think your a prude at all - I take it as a compliment that you feel so involved with my writing as to need to take a step back - and I know exactly what you mean, about the movies where you almost have to leave the room at some parts, because you just can't watch what might happen next.
Wow. I can think of few compliments as great as the ones you've paid me, honestly. Thank you so, so much, and I hope I never lose that realism.
You know, just for you, I've considered writing a continuation, just so you know what happens to Seamus. I don't know that I'll ever get there, but I can tell you that I would never, ever have considered it if you hadn't asked.
Wow...what a wonderful story...I love Consequentially yours....am going to have to go back and re-read the begining...
Author's Response: Thank you so much!
This is a wonderfully written story and I think your intentions come through very well in your writing, although the author's note at the end was nice too. I have to say that I am a true fan of your work and am looking forward to reading more from you.
Author's Response: Thank you! I shall endeavor to keep writing, though I find it hard to switch between Oliver and Seamus sometimes :-)
Brava. Very beautifully done, and since I am a huge fan of Consequentially Yours (ahem...we are waiting!), I was interested to know this little backstory tidbit.
Thanks for a few blessed minutes of escape. I look forward to the next chapter of CY.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! *hugs*
oh i loved it! I thought it was so sweet! Just tell me if u were ever going to continue this, would she actually contact him and what you think you would have her say!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: Unfortunately, I can't tell you that. This ties into my multi-chapter, Consequentially Yours as a side-note more than anything, and I don't think I'll be continuing it - but you never know, I may find that Seamus just refuses to be put on a shelf ;-p
