That was a lovely story. I've seen your fic around but haven't read much of it as a lot of the ships aren't my bag, but you're obviously a talented writer. This was just a wonderful Ron-Harry friendship fic. Far too often ship fic loses sight of the canon friendships, especially with non-canon pairings, so this was like a breath of fresh air. The only quibble I have is Harry and Ginny having sex without any real relationship; that's not something I'd see JKR's Harry doing as I just think he's too self-sacrificing.

Anyway, I'm not even sure what was my fav part of the fic, it was all good.

I'm glad you seemed to like it and I appreciate the comments. I really do try to serve my Harry and Ron's well.

My goodness, that was excellent. I was seriously worried for a bit that you were actually going to kill Harry.

There were so many excellent lines in this. Wow. I loved it!

I'm sorry I worried you over Harry. Hmm.. okay, not completely, but I would never really kill Harry. :)

There were so many excellent lines in this

I'm so glad you thought so, thank you!

Bravo. You had being going for awhile. I even had a box of kleenex at the ready, but then Harry pulled through. (thank you)

This was funny and engrossing and really brilliant the way you portrayed their friendship. Excellent work. Thank you!

but then Harry pulled through. (thank you)

No problem, I think 'my' Harry will live forever!

really brilliant the way you portrayed their friendship.

Harry and Ron's friendship is absolutely my favorite part of the whole Potterverse, so I really do try to get that right. Thank you very much!

Fabulous! This has one of the best Ron characterizations I've read in this fest so far. Very interesting premise.

Nicely done.

Wow - that's a heck of a nice thing to say, thank you! :)

what a great story! I loved the guy moments, and the sappy moments, and how Ron really is brilliant ^_^

thank you for writing this *memories*

Thank you! I enjoy how snarky Harry and Ron are with each other, very typically male. Ron is brilliant at chess - he must be smarter than other people think he is! :D

Literally crying. My family thinks I have gone insane.
20th-Mar-2007 03:06 am (UTC) - Re: Excellent death scene!
LOL - I'm sorry.

Really, that's lovely though. It's blows me away that anything I write could invoke emotion like that. *grins*

Cruel, cruel author, you had me in tears.

I hadn't feel so moved for such a long time, thank you so much for writing this. Ron was as adorable as ever and Harry was just perfect in your story. I'm so sorry to have just read this, and missed the voting, but I really hope you won because you deserve it.

Hi! I'm sorry I missed your comments earlier.

Aww - I'm sorry to put you through that. It was very trying to write as well.

My Team, Team Gen only lost to Team Het by a tenth of point, or something like that. Not bad. :)

Thank you for reading!

*has actual fat tears running down my face*

*adores this story so much*

You must write more H/R friendship fic.

Oh god - two weeks.....

hahaha - I forget to peek on this every so often (my LJ tracker is broken, very annoying) Thank you so much, my sweet!

I've been plotting another H/R friendship fic for ages. Actually, I started to write that for the triatha_ron when I realized it was going to be a more involved thing and so I wrote this as something a 'prequel' instead. I really want to write it, so lets hope Deathly Hallows doesn't kill it! *sigh*
