| theweightofmywords chapter 49 . 2/10
Wow, what can I say! I'm not even sure if you still read reviews, since this was published so long ago, but this was fanfic perfection. I loved how you got everyone's character. You nailed depression and depressive personalities better than I've ever read anywhere else. I loved how you had subtle parallels between their magical and non-magical lives- Hermione looking over her shoulder in Latin class nearly broke my heart. I really loved how it was an ensemble cast, with Ron as the protagonist. You really gave everyone such depth, which I feel is rare- the part where you wrote "Arthur Weasley doesn't feel like much of a man" really moved me, and Molly's interactions with her kids was lovely. I loved how you portrayed Harry- even without magical memories, he was still being treated as special and different, and I loved how he was still uncomfortable about it and used his humility to help these complete strangers- typical Harry! Great job. I loved this and will probably read again!

I am really glad, you know. This is the first fic I have seen which treats Ron as an individual with his own qualities and insecurities rather than as a stick figure of a jealous prat with no personality. I look forward to read more stories the trio but hopefully with less depression from Ron. Thank you for writing this story, for writing Ron and for treating Harry, Hermione and Ron as a unit, and not splintering them apart because of some irrational hate you have for a character. Thank you for writing a story with shades of grey rather than black and white. Simply put, it was great story.

This story was amazing ! Although it lacked some serious romione action but that's beside the point :D I loved how your Ron was complex and ever changing and not the boring one dimensional character most writers make him out to be. You're already in my favourites and now this fanfic is too. Thanks :)

Wow. I read a great deal of fanfiction and I like it a lot. However, while I often go back and read everything a particular author has written, I rarely think about the stories while dealing with RL. And I rarely chase down my login and password and all of that stuff in order to leave a review.
This was an excellently written fanfiction. Heck, it was w well written piece of fiction all together. I was completely blindsided by the Draco twist and found myself as slow to put everything together as Molly. I sincerely hope that you have been able to sell some of your work to the BBC.
And as someone who volunteered answering a hotline in college in the '70s and then dealt with situational depression in the '80s, you were very accurate to both.
Now I get to read your other stuff! (rubs hands together greedily.)

Liked you story a lot, was for a while afraid you were really destroying the trio's future and friendship, which I would've hated, but you solved it all very neatly. :)
There's one scene I've been missing, though. All the while, I was kind of waiting for the moment Ron or Draco would evoke a Déja-vu in each other (knew pretty soon Dee was Draco, I mean: Dee, posh accent, doesn't remember a thing like Ron, blond...), realize they hate each other and blow up. Things like Draco's Drak Mark, Hermione's Mudblood scar, Draco's name, or a phrase I was especially hoping for: "All the Weasleys have red hair, freckles, and more children than they can afford." That would've been prizeless, had Draco suddenly remembered that. :)
Anyway, liked your story and read it all through in a rush, and certainly worthy of a favourite! Well done!

Unique story you have here. I don't see why Bill and Charlie would wait to view the memory. It's not like it can only be viewed once and the longer you wait, the less valuable the information becomes because your target gets further away. Time is if the essence in a missing persons search!

That was a surprise to me. Although there were hints.. Dee's identity was still a mystery to me!

Thankyou for writing such a fantastic story
I read it all in about 6 hours, if it was a book I wouldn't have put it down. A real page turner
The story line was brilliant, things were happening right from the start til the last chapter. I love the beach for Ron and the use of the Latin was great. Also it's a good story that highlights the seriousness of depression, while still making a worthwhile read that's easy to understand.
Thankyou for giving me a day of non-stop reading!
I really hope you continue to write as you really have a talent for it, I can just tell from this!

I cannot express better how much I adore this fic. Thanks for sharing it :)

Gosh I love this! I had so much fun reading it! Thank you for writing such an amazing story!

I read this story forever ago and was unable to find it again! I'm glad it's being re-posted and I happened upon it again. I love Ron, and though his characterization takes him to a place a tad darker than I ever anticipated him going- I think you captured the empathetic passionate Weasley I love so dear! :)

Oh dear, Hermione seems to have the same problem all over again.

Interesting, but description is extremely discouraging " " should be " price. How" and "memories?." should be "memories?"

Thank you for a wonderful story. I think you took a lot of elements from the Harry Potter series and really made them work for you! One of the most realistic Potter stories I've read about how Draco transformed to the "good side". Well done and you added some dark elements that made the story interesting and emotionally charging. I'm looking forward to reading the rest of your stories ) (And good luck with your original works, I'm sure they are great!)
