INteresting scene, Lexie.

I've never really pictured the HP characters in this particular story as being so fragile.

Your writing, as always, is really good. I'm not sure if the sentence 'Harry feels it poignant to leave' works in context of that moment. Is it possible to be poignant to leave? :)

Keep the stories coming - I'm slowly getting through all of them!

Have I ever told you that you're depressing? No?

Lexie, love, you're depressing.

Seriously. Maybe it's just me - the very idea of it being over and the end depresses me to no end - but this is just horrible. Very done and finished and melancholy and beautifully well-written and perfect but depressing.

'It’s been a year, a year pitted with the mountains of grief and the occasional potholes of happiness, those moments that are either a relentless struggle or ones that they’ve rather fallen into, by complete accident.'

My favorite. Very poetic and well-written without being over-the-top. D

Very, very good. Despite being near-tears, I'm favoring it. DD

Oh wow.

That was an amazing amazing fic. The emotions were so powerful through the whole thing, you are an author beyond talented!

Absolutely beautiful! It left me in awe.

Your descriptions were wonderful, your characters were written marvellously. Their emotions, the way they act, it was very realistic. It was perfect.

That was really good! You captured the emotion of the event well. I liked when you described George trying to reinvent himself. Some people write the post-Fred George as a funny jokester who is fully recovered and that always gets on my nerves, to me it discredits the weight on Fred's death. I shall give you 3 smiles : ) : ) : )

*sniff* This was so sad, but amazingly so. I am sorry if this is how it is for you, so sorry about your friend. I am a little ashamed that I loved it so much; it must have been hell for you to write it. I hope that Luke continues to live on in your heart and your memories. Know that your friends love you.

Oh, you made me cry! The last line just summed the whole thing up perfectly... I think it's a matter of not forgetting, but remembering the life you have yourself. :)

I like it. A lot. It's a *beautiful* story! It shows the ups and downs of hurt and comfort, because there's a difference between being strong and invincible, no matter how thin the line may be... I like the atmosphere, sort of mournful yet vaguely hopeful, in some form, all at once.

Good one!

I'm not going to say this is the best thing you've ever written, but I think it's one of the most real. Grief comes in so many different forms, and I think you've captured a lot of them here, and of course the personal experience, while it's probably not something you ever wanted, it's made the whole story seem so much more poignant because you actually know what you're talking about.

Definitely a favourite.
