How could something so sweet and congragulatory end on such a sad note? Doesn't Harry realize how much Ron needs him? He waited so long! Its not fair to take it away so soon! (Do I sound petulant or what? *snort*)

Awww - I hope the ending didn't spoil things for you - it was meant to sound sort of hopeful. Anyway - thanks for the comments!

It didn't spoil it for me, it was definitly a good read . . . but don't kill me if I root for a more cheerful ending to book 7!

First I thought you were going to kill him off. Then he survives only to have you take him away.

That's just cold.

This was really well done...even if you made me sad.

But ... but it's meant to sound hopeful - not final. I'm glad you liked it, aside from the sadness. Thanks for taking the time to comment (and congrats again to Team Het!)

This was lovely -- sad and realistic and believable. I like that you didn't force them together for the sake of a conventionally happy ending.

Thank you! "Believable" is one of the highest forms of fic-flattery. :D I'm glad you liked it.

Ohh... *cries*

I can understand that Harry needs time to cool off after the whole Voldemort thing, but I can also understand that Ron needs time to be there for Harry after the whole Voldemort thing.


My poor Ron. You captured his voice extremely well, I was surprised.

Thank you! I tried really hard to think about how Ron saw the world and might react to things, so I'm pleased you felt that turned out well. :)
