This is a really good story! You just forget one of my favourite characters: Hagrid! But I forgive you because except that your story is quite wonderful.

This was amazing! It felt like the perfect continuation to the series.
| Me chapter 7 . 9/25
I like this story but ginny had no right to hit harry especially for those things. I hate when people think it's okay for girls to hit guys. We shouldn't no matter how mad we are. There are other ways to get through to him

| Guest chapter 55 . 7/4
I know this fic is 8 Years old but i just discovered it and spent most of the day and a half binging through it. You added an emotional depth to the characters that JK seemed to lack. You're writing is superb, and thank you for this story
| pianoluv chapter 13 . 7/4
This story is so amazing! I've been looking for a decent 'post Book 7' for so long! So many people just seem to want to write AU stuff which is great but I love cannon pieces so much more. Thank you so much for this story. I've read chapters 1 through 13 in one sitting and am only stopping now because I work in the morning.
Also, since I'm a writer too and like getting feedback myself, I just wanted to point out a few things you might be able to use.
Keep an eye on repetition of words. I see you repeating nouns a fair bit, ie "she poured the tea then held the tea in her hands..." That type of thing. Try finding a way around the repeated word.
Watch the amount of crying or, more specifically, the intensity. I find you have people 'sobbing' a lot and I think things would be getting a bit more subtle as time passes. That being said, the scene with Molly and Arthur made ME sob. The 'please forgive me' line destroyed me.
Finally, I'm wondering why we don't see more emotion from Molly and Arthur. Molly, in particular, is a fairly emotional person and I feel like she's more composed than what seems normal. I've known some Mother's who lost their children and it's not your average type of grief. They forever have this heartbreaking rawness too them. They end up mourning, not just their child, but the person they were before that child died. Molly and Arthur seem sad but, generally, unchanged in their personalities.
Anyway, I recognize that the story is complete now and you likely won't change things but I don't like to post reviews without giving some value outside of "it's great!".
All in all, incredible piece. Thank you for writing it!
| King chapter 55 . 6/1
| May chapter 30 . 5/27
Love this story but find it hard to read about George and Katy and not George and Angelina who were made for each other
| Anon chapter 55 . 3/14
I know this is YEARS after you published this - but I wanted to drop in and say I loved every bit of it. Wonderful, wonderful story. The characters are so believable, Ginny is PERFECT, the self-doubt, the confusion, the grief... seriously, incredible. Thank you for writing & sharing!

I'll start by apologizing for waiting until I finished this story before I reviewed. I'll start by saying that I enjoyed the story immensely. Not only did I like the characterization of Harry and Ginny, but how well you executed a clearly well thought out plan. You allowed the story to move as quickly or slowly as you felt was needed and gave every character their own path to move forward on. It wasn't always easy to watch these characters I love suffer through their losses, but it felt earned to see as they came out the other side of their grief. Or at least as much as they could. It was a well-executed story and sent me straight into the next story on your helpful list. Hopefully, you'll be hearing from me again very shortly.
