So perfect in so many ways. Thought the HR dialogue was spot on.

Loved this story - really hoping there was a sequel, but can't see an obvious one in your profile? I'm I being dense and missing it?
| Tentative Steps chapter 10 . 9/7/2010
The threat of a sequel is making me exceptionally happy (happier!), and is making me want to beg you to PRETTY PLEASE write one :) Because this has been so truly beautiful and so utterly different from most Ruth and Harry fics :)
""I promise. If I do, you can divorce me."
Harry raises an eyebrow. "I haven't married you yet."
Ruth blushes and starts to babble. "Well, I didn't mean div-…I…yet?""
- SQUEE is the only word for it, to be honest!

Malcolm is so astute sometimes. I love how you've written him.

Happy Amy is a lot happier now :)
""I said I didn't want a coffee."
"It's hot chocolate.""
- Hee hee :)

This is making Happy Amy sadder. She is, however, holding out for a happy ending! :)
| Tentative Steps chapter 6 . 9/7/2010
I am actually dying of happy, now. Happy Amy is insanely happy :)
And it's all because of this. I would say it's making me feel how Ruth feels, like a teenager again, except that I'm 18, so that would make no sense...
Now look what you made me do! You're lovely story has made me all gooey and now I'm rambling like an idiot...

Ruth's family are very, very, very scary. I dislike them strongly. Which I suspect is the point. In which case, well done! :)
""So, you're the boyfriend are you?"
The question comes from the female he assumes is Ruth's mother.
"That's right. I'm Harry. It's nice to meet you.""
- "the boyfriend". Eww. I never liked that phrase, and it really doesn't suit Harry, but HE AGREES! :) This makes Happy Amy happier :)

Sorry, no review this time; too busy being giddy and squeeful and happy at this story (which, incidentally, is making me grin like a loonatic!)
| Tentative Steps chapter 3 . 9/7/2010
Happy Amy is Happy :)
""Oh, sweet-" He stops himself"
- Harry, you nearly called her "sweetheart", didn't you? How simply WONDERFUL of you...
See, I knew it wouldn't last long!
| Tentative Steps chapter 2 . 9/7/2010
Oh, that's a relief! For a horrible moment, I thought she was very ill, or something...
"Without realising, she has answered his original question - she was seventeen when the photos were taken. He would have been thirty-four, twice her age. Harry finds this mildly unsettling. Whilst Ruth was enjoying a carefree holiday with her friends, he was a newly-divorced father of two who spent his evenings drinking himself into a stupor."
- Wow, that is a little unsettling! I hadn't realised he was supposed to be so much older than her...
The writing, by the way, is exceptional. I have a soft-spot for the present tense. :)

This is confusing, but so enticing! I'm trying exceptionally hard not to write "wonderful" again, so you'll have to excuse the short review!
