Well, I read this as part of the Hidden Gems recommendation, despite my normal dislike for first person POV's. I found this work delightful and charming enough to get past my preferences for 3rd person POV's, and look forward to reading some of your other works.

I have read so, so many HP stories here (& at FF.net) over the past 10 years...and I hope you at least partially grok and remember, when life can be particularly challenging, how utterly brilliant your creative expression was when you wrote this. And when you brought it to completion.

I'd heard of this fic many times, but have never befor gotten past the chapters about the brothers. I'm delighted to find that it is so much more than a Weasley family biography. River Psychology and all that combined to make Ginny who she was and brought her to this point.......just brilliant.

You deserve all of the glowing reviews you've gotten so far...and are due to continue getting many for years to come.

Overall a great piece! Your different POVs really add a lot of depth to all the characters! Nice!

I really enjoyed this story. I felt that you found - and developed - and stayed in true character - for Ginny. (Something I find quite remarkable after reading fics for many years!) I just finished re-reading HP again, and "The House of the Quick and the Hungry" felt right, like it nestled in with the story (aside from canonical differences, of course). I liked your approach of telling the story from all different perspectives, it was a chance to get to know the Weasley brothers.

I was originally turned on to your writing through kschneyer's fic "A Slow Boat to Shippers’ Hell" and reading this exceeded my expectations. I don't know what I can add that other reviewers haven't already said in one form or another. Keep up the great work!

I was gobsmacked when I learned that you were only 17 when you wrote this piece. The insight, maturity and sheer eloquence of your writing are astounding - you make even the most minor, comic characters of JKR's universe seem believable, human, and poignantly real. A work of more than 50,000 words, and not a dull moment or lazily described passage - I truly envy your talent. This is truly a marvelous work.

WEll this was really cool. I totally enjoyed reading it. It wasn't the same old love story. But, had depth to it and a harsh dose of reality. But, still a love story nonetheless.

I know this isn't a new story, but you mentioned having a Birthday...so Happy Belated Birthday! Someone said once that it's better to gove than receive, and you have given us a wonderful story to take out and read again and again. So, on behalf of myself and your other readers, thank you so much for the gift!

Again, we get to see that deep and wise part of Molly, and it was great. What she told Ginny was absolutely right, and I believe she would not have managed to get any sleep until she figured everything out, help from her mother or not. Also, I do wonder if Ginny had a huge case of pneumonia the morning after. :P I also loved the title of the chapter, and how you began and finished with that sentence, "east by southeast of the castle". The part where the boys get drunk... well, it wouldn't be the eve of a wedding if nobody got drunk. I was pretty sad when Percy died, and that tear of Ginny's while she wished he were there tugged a bit at my heart as well, but I'm pretty happy about the way you wrote it all. She finally changed her mind about Hermione, I see! It would've been pretty original and funny to adjust to that choice, but of course Arthur is glad Ginny decided against it in the last minute. Ron's "You don't even know" made me giggle, and the ending was perfect. It was the way it had to end, couldn't have been any other way, still I'm sad it's over. Anyway, this review is getting too long to be healthy, so I'd better stop now. Thanks for a wonderful story, Laura! -Sonia

This last chapter, especially the passages at the beginning and the end, are beautifully lyrical and say the sorts of things about a wedding that I wish someone would always say. I tried reading those two passages aloud to my wife but I choked up too much.

I'm not in the habit of creating a user account on a random fanfiction website with pink background celebrating the relationship of two prepubescents simply to congratulate the author.
