It's a lovely honour to Fred. I truly believe one has to honour the person as he/she was in life. My father is a man who is afflicted with the Peter Pan syndrome. He's 60something years old but acts like he's 12. We were talking one day where he said to me in a serious tone. He said to celebrate his life not his death. I gve him a quizzical look; the man is healthy as a horse but why was he telling me this? He told me this cuz he knew I'd do what he wished. I truly believe George is honouring Fred's spirit :D . You did such a beautiful job as always
I missed this so long ago, I'm sorry! I'd intended to write something more depressing, because I was so depressed about Fred's loss myself, but then once I got the feel for George, he surprised me and decided to be positive.
Thanks for sharing your Dad. That's exactly the spririt! *hugs* Your support for my stories has been so encouraging.

This was the best post-DH George fic that I've read thus far! Why? Because this isn't some sad, confused, and lost George who wants to give up and die, no, your George is a close to the "real" thing in spirit and characterization in that he's a grieving, but rejoicing in the fun of life and the beauty of joviality! Plus, I just love the way you worked that bit of George/Lee magic in there....is this a start of a relationship or are you suggesting that something has been going on with them for a while? Either way, I think you should forget the one-shot and move onward with a full out short story! (please) LOL. I'm such a fan, keep it up!
Yikes, I missed this comment ages ago - sorry! I was so sad after reading DH, I wrote this almost immediately (at the same time a little happy that DH made George/Lee a canon possibility) I mentally intended to write something much more mournful because that's how I felt, but then my George turned the tables on me and insisted that life was going to be ok. Especially with Lee.
Yeah, I wasn't too sure myself whether this was the start or something previously started, so I liked it being ambiguous. Thank you!!

Oh! Heart re-broken and mended in under 1000 words! This is beautiful! Bravo!
Author's Response: Hee - oh what a cool way to put that! Yes, I was SO sad when I wrote this. I struggled to leave it such that I could be at peace. *sigh*
