i love harry potter and j.k rowling who created this wonderful universe. im 21 years old studying science living in India.
i checked out fanfiction.net butu have only updated till chap 27....u i've been checking out this story on and off for past 3 yrs n it hasnt been updated and im dyiiiiiiing(word doesnt convey emotion enuf!)to find out wht hons next plllllllllllllz im sure many many mnay of us r being killled coz of the suspense so plzzz updaate! why dont u update here on mnff?tht'll be cool too.... Its a lovely story...
I agree with Petra92...Dear sparx..to tell u the truth, I read this story 2 yrs back when i first checked out fanfiction..and when i came back to fanfic in 2009(thts now)i hoped the story will be complete...ur imagination and the way u have made draco hermione grow in this story is INCOMPARABLE to any other fic tht ive read Its beautiful. And when i saw it hasnt been updated im really worried-Is everything okay wit u Sparx?Whatever it is do get over it I know u have the strength to overcome any,anything....
U have inspired me to write fanfiction.
Loads of Love,wrackspurt7
whoa, im defnly wont be able to match upto prof' review its really critical(in a good critical way!) But I really liked this story KarasAunty.Jk rowling has concentrated only on harry in the series(thts obvious becoz the book would have never been completed if she concentrated on the lives of supporting characters too much), but thru fanfiction,many characters are developed well...I especially congratulate u for the choice of characters on whom u've written thts mrs longbottom and fred/george. Ya george's angst is understandable coz when u're facced with reality u cant do anything about like death rage and frustration towards ur closest ppl is expected. and evn percy doesnt seem OOC to me, becoz he was always an unbending person so his opinion tht he really cant do anything more than say sorry was understandable.to his credit, he says why dont to let me make up and since he never got on well with G/F (they DID always trouble him)so getting ugly with george is also understandable...If u can write in percy's pov abt this it'll be a gr8 read cz i feel percy is the most neglected character among weasleys- opinionated, ambitious, egoistic but defnly he cared abt his family-he did come back at last. Maybe the weasleys would have been a big happy family if the war hadnt taken fred, but his death bought an element of dysfunction to the family...an incomplete happiness-the situation under which percy rejoined them will ALWAYS bring back memories of fred death..
Author's Response: For author reply, see second part of review.
I think u have done a really great job and u must continue this story...U can do justice to the characters becoz u have understood them very well..
gosh - what a MASSIVE review(s)! Thanks very much for taking the time to write both of them :)
I'm really glad you liked the fic, so far. Writing about this period in George's life was always going to be difficult, because I still find it hard to believe Fred's dead (and it still annoys the hell out of me). Of course, if that's what I think - it's probably 100 times harder for the Weasley's, especially George.
Grief is such a strange emotion to write about. Mainly because everyone deals with it differently. If I was to do this story proper justice, I would have made it significantly longer and fleshed out George's agonies in more detail. But the thought of putting the poor lad through the emotional wringer (and myself, by default) was just too much, so I've kept this fairly short (3 chapters). Still, I'm glad that even the first chapter has portrayed enough of the characters' potential reactions to impress you!
I've never written Percy before, so his dialogue and reactions were a best-guess scenario (though it seems fairly safe to imagine his devastating guilt at surviving, after he was such a prat to his family and Fred wasn't - poor git). The story is actually finished, so, unfortunately, I won't be able to change it to Percy's pov, but it's great to know you enjoyed his part in the fic anyway. Poor Perce does get a raw deal, sometimes - but then, it was mainly his own fault!
The second chapter is in the queue over at Admin right now, so hopefully it'll be cleared and posted in the next few days. I hope you enjoy the rest of it as much, too.
Once again, thank you for both your reviews and your words of support!!
Kara's Aunty :)
