All is not well.
George uses work and Firewhisky to cope with Fred's death until a drink with a friend leads to something that dulls pain better than alcohol. Emotionally torn by grief, he struggles to allow Alicia into his life...and then comes baby....

Author's Response: Merry Christmas to you! (and all of your kin, lol)
I love love love love love love your stories! One of my worst pet peeves is bad grammar, and I think you metioned you had a beta editing, and so my hat goes off to them. Also, the storyline is excellent, and it always keeps me engaged. Woo hoo! Just one small suggestion. If you plan to get far enough that Alicia has the baby, J.K. Rowling said in an online interview that he grew up, got married, and named his boy Fred. I hate to sound servile, but you RULE!!!!
Author's Response: You sound erudite and brilliant, ^_^, and I appreciate the input! I\'ll be keeping canon with the baby\'s name, but you won\'t know how he gets it for awhile! ^_~
Nice. I alway love a good touch of Ron/Hermione.
Author's Response: The family\'s all together next chapter, so there\'s bits of all couples...and not in a Sweeney Todd way, lol.
Ah, mon petit chou, my little cabbage made me smile. My sisters name is Jamie but we call her jou-jou sometimes, which sounds like chou-chou, and she goes 'don't call me cabbage cabbage!' it's very sweet. However, I'm very distraught at the prospect of only two more chappies..... *tears up*
Tell her at least it's done in affection, like calling someone "pumpkin" or "peanut". It could be a lot worse, LOL.
If I tell you there's four chapters left, will that cheer you up? I hope so. ;)
You are the most awesome updater ever!!! You never keep me waiting for too long (except on Chasing Angelina).
Author's Response: Oh my heck, I know, it\'s been impossible to find time to write Angelina/Blaise in between George/Alicia and Remus/Tonks! I\'m going to take Christmas week the queue is closed to write at least one chapter of Chasing Angelina, so I hope that\'s jolly news! :)
Awwww!! That was cute. I can't wait to see what George has in store for Mrs. Spinnet, and vice versa.
Author's Response: Are you imagining Wizarding War III? :D You\'ll see soon, I hope!
I love you!! I went through and reread the entire chappie to look for possible foreshadowing.
Author's Response: Thank you for doing that! I\'ll confess that \'in the cards\' was literal, :D, but won\'t start for a couple of chapters. Cross your fingers that mods fix the site soon so I can update!
oh............. my........................ buddha! i love this story, i love you, but i DETEST these freaking cliffies! urgh!
Author's Response: There's only one more chapter, and I promise not only is it long, but there's no cliffie! :)
he proposed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *squeeeeeeeeeee*
im happy happy happy! im seriously doing jumping jacks now to calm down.
Author's Response: That means you\'re happy and fit, too! Who said reading was a sedentary activity? :D
woooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!! Youve updated!
Author's Response: ah-woo! You reviewed! :)
You are ah-MAZING! I hope this story is never completed so I can keep reading. :)
Author's Response: This is the story that never ends...it just goes on and on my friend.... :D That\'s a cheerful and terrifying thought! Although it will end, it won\'t be soon, because there are too many issues left to resolve! :)
Awesome story- Dermots a bitch. Love this, one of the best post Hogwarts I've read in a while
Hi KEvin! I imagine this is your favorite food, reviews- however, what do you think about parsnips? :) This is really good, and I hope you update lots..... And don't neglect your readers (or Kevin)!
Author's Response: Kevin: Yes, I eat, breath and drink reviews. However, Evie's mum makes the best roast parsnips at Christmas, so I can usually scoff a lot of them. ;) Evie: I'm so sorry I've been neglecting my readers. :( RL came down with a crashin blow and things are hectic at the moment. Also, I got a very rude review for this story off site, which has dis-spirited me somewhat.
Author's Response: Thanksthanksthanksthanksthanks!
OMG! I hope that sums it up. I'm assuming Bernard is Zacharias Smith's son?
Brilliant, absolutely brilliant. Well, ta ta I'm off to watch America's Next Top Model
That's really good! I like how it really stayed with the book, and you got all the lines exactly right while making it from Ginny's point of view. 5 stars!
Author's Response: Thanks, I\'m glad you liked it!
More! I need more! Interesting twist, having Percy have killed Fred. I think it actually explains a lot about his actions after Fred's death.
Can't wait until you update for a new chapter! Smashing good job.
Author's Response: thanks, but I\'m sorry, this one\'s a one-shot! Last Chance\'s next chapter is FINALLY in queue, however.
