I came so close to crying during this chapter. You really captured George's pain. The pain that comes with the death of a family member eventually goes away, but not completely. There always will be the hole. You simply find a new normal.
Great job with the epilogue.

Gah. You know how I said in a previous review that this was the first Fred and George fic that I have read? Well, yes this is my first and gahhh I cried okay! Honestly, I shouldn't have read the epilogue and pretend that Fred lived but UHHHH I just read it and now tears are really streaming down my face TT
Really, this was a wonderful story and I could really see the srong connection between the two brothers. My heart broke when I read this epilogue and all I can say is wow, good job (:
But right now sorry, Im not really smiling.. Im crying Still, awesome fic. I really enjoyed it (:

Well, I knew I would cry when reading this. I always do. But still... this was very well written, very emotional, but also with a bit of humour, just like you'd expect Fred and George to be like. I loved every part of this one, especially the parts in which Fred and George were alone because the things they said... oh wow. These really got to me.
I enjoyed this whole story so much, I can't wait to read the epilogue and I also hope you'll write more HP stories. Thumbs up again for this great story!

I apologize for becoming so slack in my reviewing - that does not by any means reflect my enjoyment nor my dedication to this story. It is something to be said to have a story that is consistently updated, and consistently exceeds expectations. Every other day, without fail, I'd wake up to a notification email that there was a new chapter and it was something that I grew to look forward to.
I am pretty disappointed it is coming to an end, but all good things must! It'll be sad tomorrow morning when I wake up to no new notification, but then I'll probably just come reread it to make myself feel better, lol.
I'd be interested in reading a redux version of chapter 17 from Fred's POV - what happened when he was chased by the death eaters in the other direction, how he knew to apparate where and when he did, what he saw when george was struggling in the apparition spot.
I'd also love, love, love a post-war sequel. How does george manage without Fred to help? does someone step into that role? Can he ever get treatment for his symptoms? do they worsen with the stress of losing Fred? Does Molly/the rest of the family who is in the dark ever find out about how hard it is on him to apparate?
thank you for giving me something to look forward to these past few weeks, thank you for a great story.

I'm crying. that was beautiful. their good-bye was absolutely perfection. and i feel almost empty inside cuz it is the last time he see's fred. and it breaks my heart...
and i think it's absolutely amazing that you are such a skillful beautiful writer to make your readers feel this emotionally attached to your work.
i'm going to stop writing now...because i'm a blubbering mess and my roommates are starting to stare...
Oh, and please post the epilogue! (and an AU ending where horrible things don't happen to a certain ginger twin?)
I LOVED THIS SO MUCH!

So sad its all over. Great final chapter. It made me want to cry. I hope to read more stories by you in the near future!
| Aris1013 chapter 18 . 10/12/2011
That story was wonderful! I definitely cried in this chapter! But I'm going to pretend Fred lives :) Great ending, so sad this story is over!

You are an exceptional writer, you know that? And aww this story broke me heart, but in a good way? I mean, since I know what happens, it breaks my heart :( But it was beautifully written, and I absolutely ADORE this story :) I'm really going to miss it! I really hope you come back to write another story soon!
| snitch-bewitch chapter 18 . 10/12/2011
But let me tell you this; it ended so beautifully. This chapter, I have to say, was probably the strongest of the lot. I liked the George/Ginny/Fred interaction, very brotherly-sisterly. The end part did it in for me. Just knowing that they wouldn't be seeing each other alive again after this, really forced you to read it with a lump in your throat. But honestly, you did an amazing job with this chapter.
The story in general, I really liked the plot progression. Everything seemed to flow nicely and you certainly did a wonderful job at capturing some of the more difficult sibling-y emotions without it becoming too sappy.
Also. YES, I DO WANT YOU TO POST AN EPILOGUE. AND THEN I WANT A POST-WAR STORY. And then I want a squirrel. You might not be able to help with the last one, though. In all seriousness, I think an epilogue would be absolutely brilliant. If you do have time, write another twins-centric story, you've got an excellent flair.
It certainly has been fun reading and reviewing this story chapter-by-chapter. Look at how big it's gotten; you're closer to 200 reviews than 100! Well done, seriously. It's been a pleasure to read. :)
Hope to see more from you soon.

OH MY GOSH! this was amazing! I started crying! Awwwwwww that manly embrace and way of saying I love you was so cute! I love this story! And I'm definitely reading that epilogue! 3 write more! Thanks for that story! Keep writing other stories! :)
| sleepynightvale chapter 18 . 10/12/2011
*sniff* *sniff* Beautiful ending. Great way to end an epic story like this. On a cliffy. I hope you post that other story, the one where he dies. I'd read it when I'm feeling particularly depressed (cuz when I am, I have to read equally depressing stories) and Fred's death always makes me sad. I know it sounds weird... Anyway, I'm so sad it's over. Especially knowing George's thoughts before they separated. I'm glad J.K. didn't write it in the books. I most likely would have bawled my eyes out even longer then I actually did. And then I saw the movie! Even with that short, quick "You ok Freddie?" "Yeah." "Me too :)" I shed tears. And then actually seeing George bawling over Fred? Broke my heart. And then they're showing the deleted scene of Fred's death on the DVD! So sad. Love this story, love this chapter, it was adorable. Love, love, love it. Amazing :) You're truly an wondrous writer. (I used a synonym converter! XD)

such an emotional chapter! I loved it. Please put up the epilogue!
| Lucy Beale chapter 18 . 10/12/2011
I read your story like everyday and was always super happy when I saw you updated (which you did like.. everyday :D)
I have to admit I was too lazy to leave a review.. and I really feel bad about that because this story is just soooo awesome! You haven't overdone anything and your writing style is very good!
I ESPECIALLY liked the ending because you didn't really right the ending.. like this it was even more heart-breaking.. in my opinion.. that last sentence made me cry.. like.. literally cry! gaaah.. I am about to cry again :D
Although I loved the ending I am so sad that this story is over! It was something to look forward to.. one of not many REALLY good Fred & George FanFictions.. there are only a few where there is like.. a lot of Drama (which I love) but before Freds dead.. (Know what I mean? I'm german, so my english is pretty bad :D)
What I meant is: most stories of Fred and George are about only George how he copes with Freds death and the ones that aren't are humor FanFics, where the both of them always pull pranks..
I love Fictions with a lot of Drama where both of the twins are still alive :D
that's what I meant :D
Okay... uhm.. I'm finished. Great job!
Love, Lucy x

:O THAT WAS AWESOME! Such a good ending, seriously. I was glad you left it out of the story, because it would be a bad ending if he either lived or died- personally I think you should write a sequel for George after Fred's death, you would be amazing at that. AND YES, PUT UP THE EPILOGUE! PLEASE, I BEG OF YOU!
