Oh that was definitely a good read.

Strangely, I LOVED your characterisation of Ron the best. I think he was both the most meaningful character and plot device you could have used to bring Harry & Hermione together in a canon compliant way. Their loss of direction and sense of grief due to the event was so realistic it was almost tangible.

I know nothing about chess but I easily understood the gist of how each piece was referenced in the context of the story, so kudos for that. A great piece of work, thank you for writing this!

This is a stunning one-shot. I love it.

Ron is so amazing in this, I don't even have the words to articulate it. You've captured them all so well.

Even though I'm not a chess player I still enjoyed this fic and I think I understood the references so no worries there. I tend to agree that JKR would've be better served killing Ron at some point for character development reasons and this is a great example. The killing off of Ron can be a bit cliche, but it didn't feel like that was the case here since it was a catalyst for real character growth not a cheap short cut to a ship pairing. Thank you for writing!

I always hoped Ron would die saving his friends. Alas, JK didn't have the balls. I'm glad you did.

I cannot even begin to explain how brilliant I find this little gem of a story. It is short and light on the details, but still tells the reader everything. Very classy and very well done.

Wow, this was intense. Really liked this, not just the plot but your writing. Your writing really made this fic.

I understand reviewing the movies on a regular basis, but how can you not read the books. Agreed HBP isn't on a par with the rest but it still has nuances that add to the Potter legand. Please for your own sake finish the series. As a non chess player, the quote is unfamiliar, but your made you story clear enough there is no problem following the plotline. Interesting concept.

When I see an update from you, I know I'm generally in for something interminably dark, yet impossibly sweet. Once again, you've delivered gloriously.

I just wanted to make the first review. 3 3

Anyway, you already know my opinion, but I'll just comment on the few that I accidentally left out.

So one, I failed your e-cookie; I have no idea where that phrase come from, sorry. T_T

Next, although there were a little OOC moments such as Harry's sudden move towards Hermione, you've managed to keep the characterization pretty much spot on, so there's not really too much problem there.

Third, I am actually surprised that you've decided to finish this, because I thought it was one of the Vampire Fate types. Guess not, ish happy. XD

Finally (okay you've heard about this before), the emotions brimmed wonderfully in this story, and once again I am in awe at your ability to fill so many things with so little words. Wonderful.

And oh, you actually got better at writing details. Almost unnoticeable, but it's there. Thumbs up to the Improvement-Over-Time Theory! XD
