Fling Wide the Whirlwind by Thevina Rated: RT - Restricted Themes starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 61]
Summary: Immortality- it sounds appealing. Not, however, if it's forced on you, you're Obliviated afterwards, and you're handfasted, realising your partner will grow old without you. **Now complete** vampire!Ron/Harry.

OMG!  You made Harry a vampire!

(and I'm abusing exclamation marks)

It might take another chapter or two to get used to this idea, the idea that they're both vampires.  Wow.


Author's Response:

<b>OMG!  You made Harry a vampire!</b>

Well, he pretty much demanded it, didn\'t he?! And Harry\'s powerful; once he made up his mind, that was it. He\'s done so in this next chapter, too, pushy bugger.

I think it\'s going to take some time for all concerned to wrap their minds around the fact that they\'re both vampires, although Harry\'s adapting pretty darn well.

Oops. Only written in my head.

Thank you for your enthusiastic reviews!

Gah!  I'm all in knots about how to feel about the chapter and that it's the end but for the Epilogue.

I understand why Harry would want to step away, to become more of the loner that "traditional" vampires are, but at the same time I feel sorry for Ron that, while he'll now have Harry forever, he doesn't have Harry forever.

In any case, excellent job!

"I understand why Harry would want to step away, to become more of the loner that "traditional" vampires are, but at the same time I feel sorry for Ron that, while he'll now have Harry forever, he doesn't have Harry forever."

I felt pretty badly for Ron, too, but after all the buildup, I didn't think it made sense for it to be fairytaleish at that point.

"In any case, excellent job!"

Many, many thanks! It's been quite a rush, writing this. I've not had enthusiasm for a story like this before.

Very nice ending.  Though they did ride off into the sunset, it wasn't exactly a peaceful trip after watching damn near everyone die.

Author's Response:

"Very nice ending.  Though they did ride off into the sunset, it wasn't exactly a peaceful trip after watching damn near everyone die."

Many thanks- I'm afraid I got a little sentimental at the end, but Ron had had to go through so much. I'll write something nice and dark and angsty and unresolved next! And you're right; the downside to being immortal is seeing your mortal loved ones pass along. At least now he and Harry have each other and presumably other immortals.

This came highly recommended by both shocolate and annie and I have to say I agree whole-heartedly.

The picture you paint of Harry post-war is heartwrenching, but they way he changes with Sky/Matilda in his life made me laugh in places and get choked up in others.

Now, for the sexual tension... just wow.  I loved the observations about The Grin (though the first time I saw the capitalization on those two words, I thought it said "The Grim" and I heard it in Seamus's voice in PoA).

Excellent work!


Author's Response:

Thank you! I guess children can be an awful burden, but there's always a good side to things to -- for Harry, the chance to make something more of his life than a used hero.

 Oh god! That's funny in a sort of terrible way. I'm always doubtful about capitalisation, but then again if I didn't I'd have kept pointless repeating 'grin', 'grinning' etc, and I hate that.

 Thank you!



Author's Response: Yuck, two grammar mistakes. My apologies -- was typing too quickly!

Oh my god.  That was great, worth the squeeing griffindorstudent did over it as she betaed it.

I love how you recreated the night before with Ron being the facilitator, so to speak, and that the twins used the Trio as guinea pigs for an inhibition-lowering potion.  And that each of the boys had fantasized.  And that Hermione had, too.  And...and... just lots of it :)

Oh, very nice.  I giggled out loud several times at Ron's words and thoughts...but felt heartsick at the images you conjured of Harry in his sleeping habits.  Ron and Hermione are good for him.

And Ron had better bugger him so hard he can't walk for days!

That was sick and twisted and gorgeous.  Excellent job.  I loved how awkward they both were despite the fact they both enjoyed it...and despised themselves just a little for enjoying it.
