Date: 12/27/2006 Title: Chapter 7: Chapter 6: Sunshine

I feel terrible that it took me so long to review, but there was Christmas and all, but I flailed and read this immediately when it came out.

-The talking to baby-in-womb dream was beautiful and I completely and totally understood it. Being a mom myself I could really identify with that.

-I simply boggled at the way you told the part with seeing the scar in the 'sky'. Another writer would have botched it and made it seem weird and confusing, but you nailed it!  It was amazing to read, so unique and emotional too.

- Ron falling asleep with his hand on Harry's head - oh my how sweet and perfect.

- I really liked the feeling of the moment you captured with R/Hr in the kitchen. It didn't feel as though Harry was left out, but showed us the connection that the two of them still have on their own. It was lovely.

-and then the paragraph, you know the one. That one beautiful, perfect way you described the boys, her boys, our boys, coming together was just amazing. (cheating!) but amazing. ;P

- And then we are left all full of love and shmoopy sunshine feelings at the end. See, a lot of writers can capture readers attention with the emotional angst, but they lose it when everything starts coming together at the end, but you didn't! You've had me hooked from the first word. 

This is one I don't want to end. *sigh*



Author's Response:

thanks for this most beautiful and precious of reviews, maple.

(and lol that i 'cheated'... hehehehe)

all the things you reassure me about mean alot because of course, i'm never quite sure if i have got it or not.

This is one of my favorite stories, and it doesn't even have smut - that's saying something for ME! ;)

I like Ron's stomach gurgling in his sleep. I LOVE that Harry can see and feel himself as an equal part of this family now. 

I lol at Ron's 'breakfast looks good too' and his laughing at himself. He is the sexiest dork!

Harry's quiet 'I love you'. Guh. 

Ron working with gadgets is great, all the moments with Charlie are perfect. 

What a beautiful ending. I just want more and more and more. I hope you keep up your enthusiasm for this, because it really shows. Thank you for sharing it. 



Author's Response:

lol at you liking it despite the no smut!

your encouragement means so much, maple.

oooh - I stumbled onto this and I'm intrigued. I was reading with one eye closed at first, but honestly I loved the violence! ha! Yay protective!Ron. I can't wait to see what happens next. (I hope there is more to come?)

Author's Response: Oh yay, I'm so glad you like it. Yes, there will be more of Ron's protective nature and their coming to terms with their love for each other. Harry just has to let Ron help him heal first. :)

You are doing very well with the boys here. I'm enjoying this a lot. They still have so much confusion and caution for having been together for so long. I constantly want to *thwap* them for being so silly. I just adored Sirius' conversation with James here. I was so excited about the part with Remus's mother. Oh - and all the smooshy, tender loving, I could read and more and more of that. AND - I liked how Sirius made James turn around so he could kiss Remus. LOL - well done. 

Author's Response: What a great review!  Yeah, I wanted to have some loving moments b/c I can't give them a hug and really - sometiems R and S just need some *love*

*meep* That is exactly what I wanted. I'd hoped for something different, and I think these brothers deserve more fic time.

 Being out in the cold seemed like a metaphor to live.

Oh.. yes, very Charlie.

 Thank you Secret Elf! That was just right! :D



Author's Response: You're very welcome!  I enjoyed the challenge.
