This was an incredible story. Your writing technique is so thorough, so in depth...
It's funny, I have never really liked the character of Lavender Brown. I'm not really a big Ron/Hermione shipper, so it was never that - she just never appealed to me. Also, I never really understood the Lavender/Seamus pairing that so many people use. Your story honestly made me a fan of Lavender, and that pairing.
Thank you for opening my eyes to something new :)

What an intriguing idea. You wrote this so captivatingly, it doesn't even matter that I disagree (I just can't see Lavender being that selfless). But you wrote it very very realistically, and my heart just goes out to her for suffering through it all.
His kisses were completely unrecognizable from the ones I’d gotten in October. They occasionally took my breath away, and I wasn’t even attracted to the guy.
This was amaaazing, it made me squee :D
Even when I chose you, I was really choosing her.
Again with the squeeing! It was fantastic! The emotions were so real.
When Lavender finds out that she's the last to know about Ron's poisoning though, I think that was the one moment you could have brought in even more emotion. When reading the canon I couldn't help but believe that she was truly and sincerely hurt, and in this fic, even if it was all an act, I also believed her when she said she'd come to care for Ron quite a bit. So I think she would have reacted in a way that showed she was in more pain, though you did touch on it.
Overall a truly excellent read, what a great interpretation.

The best thing I read this last few weeks!!! very nice insight in an otherwise too easily typecasted character. I had a real good time reading and wondering what would happen next, even though we all know what happens. In my opinion, this shows, better than anything else could, how well you write. Now, I want to read more from you. please indulge me?

Wow. Just, wow! I am a die hard Ron/Hermione shipper, being so I spend most of my time hating Lavender. However, that being said, by reading your story I couldn't help feeling for her. You helped humanize her as a character, rather than the "clingy, annoying" girl who called Ron Won-Won and made me want to rip my hair our. Phenomenal job! I really enjoyed your story, even though I was a bit hesitant going in. Definitely the best depiction of her character I've read.
