Review tag!

Apparently I haven't been on your page in an unacceptably long time, because there's all these new stories I haven't seen that look super interesting. Anyway, this one.

I love George/Angelina and there really aren't that many stories about them. The beginning of this was just... agh. I can't even imagine how hard it must be to attempt getting over someone's death when every time you look in the mirror, you see them. He was just so broken. (I will probably always be annoyed at JKR for killing off one of the inseparable twins. Unfair.) But you wrote those emotions so well and how he feels guilty for liking Angelina when he thinks he has no right to - he's caught between his love and respect for his dead twin, and his feelings for Angelina.

Your Angelina is really wonderful, she is so strong and understanding and I love how she can really get through to George and bring him just a little bit out of that dark place he's in. Ha, I loved the end when it's a combination of sympathetic understanding and humour that finally works on him. So perfect. And those last few lines... aw! It's kind of like I just got kicked in the feels, but in a good way.

This was really such a great story. You are a wonderful writer :)

Haha! Yeah, it has been a while since I've seen you around the forums but don't worry - I'm a slow writer as usual :P


There seriously have to be more stories written about George and Angelina. Fred's death still angers me all these years later, but George was an interesting character to write because of it. I've never written someone like him before where I had to be careful about the way I balanced the humour and angst.


Angelina was a delight to write. I was worried that she'd come off as a little one-dimensional. I mean, we only ever see her from George's perspective, and half the time he's beating himself up over liking her, rather than describing her in a well-rounded way. I'm just glad she got through to him - I wasn't sure if they'd actually work out halfway through this story :P And George couldn't have anything less than a happy-sad ending.


Thanks so much for the lovely review :)
