Date: 10/14/2006 Title: Chapter 2: Chapter One: Get Over It

I'm speechless...where do I start.
I love how you are moving the story along.

They are each predicting each others thoughts here. It really shows how well they know eachother. They know eachother insecurities.

"Hermione wriggled a little. Her hair was caught slightly on her neck, pulling against her scalp. She lifted her head and Harry reached over to release the long strands, before she lowered it back down near his shoulder." This is so real! Things are never ackward in fanfics, but real life is, and I am so happy to see this little touch.

I really get all fluttery at their reactions to eachother. They know eachother so well, they are almmost predicting Harry's mmoves. They know he doesn't really want to leave them, but he tries to do what he thinks is best and can not imagine them loving him so much.

*applause* Great job Q! I can't wait for the next chapter!


Author's Response:

I love the theme of who you choose. It can be that simply. Love is so complex, but there are people that we choose, and will stick with.

Oh they can feel his sadness and will bring him back from it.

Ron's hands...*sigh* we all love Ron's hands!

mmmm....Harry doesn't know how it feels to be in love. Ron and Hermione will teach him.

it was wonderful as always. I love the way you are exploring the trio dynamics! love it Q!

Author's Response:

thanks sweety.

yes, ron's hands.... *smiles*

i'm glad you enjoyed the process of exploring the trio. hoping to find out more of how this relationship would really *work*.

But now there was a door, locked with a Colloportus, blocking his way forward into "the rest of his life".
oh a colloportus! That is good!

this is acting screwy....lets see if the whole review shows up this time.

But now there was a door, locked with a Colloportus, blocking his way forward into "the rest of his life".
oh a colloportus! That is good!

Hermione ignored his grumbling. “I think that when Voldemort struggled with you as he died, he grasped you through your link in your scar, he managed to tear your soul slightly. Obviously he didn’t get it, as he definitely died, but there was a slight tear, and it has healed with a scar. For some reason now, it seems to be irritated again, to be causing you problems after all this time.”
What a facinating explanation for Harry's scar! Because I refuse to believe he is a Horcrux.

Ron sat up straight. “What kind of book is that, Hermione? Most Potente Fuckes Through the Ages?”
Oh Ronnie! That is so funny!

“It’s not as though he’s never thought about it. You‘ve been moving in this direction for a long time now. He’s held back because he’s scared you don’t want it. But I am positive that he does.” She laid her parchment and quill down.
oh Hermione is so smart and knows her boys so well!

He would be walking with his gaze on the ground, eyes flicking left and right, looking a million miles away
Ron does love him so much.

And what a perfect ending! They are dedicated to each other. I didn't think Ron was going to leave for a min.! I loved the description of how Harry sleeps and that Ron and Hermione make him safe.

*applause* It was lovely!

"Mr Weasley stood up. "I'll not lose you, Ron. I want all my children to be happy. Harry and Hermione included. If this is--is what you need, if you have found love, then that's all I need to know. You are always a part of this family. No matter what happens." He placed a sad kiss on the top of Ron's head before shuffling into the living room."

OH Molly! I am so glad she gives her blessing! It is so important to them. Why does Authur seems so sad?

I love that you have themm trio telling everyone! Their reactions are great! Tonks is so wicked! ""--No ejaculation of course," continued Tonks." HA!

The mood you have set at the burrow is great. I can tell there is this layer of apprehension over everything.

""Percy was a man doing a dangerous task--," sniffed Penelope. "--Ginny was just a silly little girl who got mixed up in something too big for her. And you just feel guilty. And so you should. It's your fault." She pointed at Harry who stared back, with all the colour draining from his face. "Ginny, Percy... all of them...... It's ALL your fault!""
WOAH! total bitch! Ok yeah she is still grieving but oh she made me mad! I was so happy to see all the Weasley's step up for him. Even the wives knew she was out of it!

""She was blazing. A blazing light. It's how she lived. Like sunshine. And it's how she died," Harry was vaguely aware of the whispered concern around him." I haven't told you that yet, have I? She became this huge pillar of light..."" Woah Harry! That is scary. I hope that Ron and Hermione can help him!

And then the triangle tilts again. I love the complexities that you give them! Your story isn't about how three people can have sex together. You are writing real life and how they actually work through the difficult times.

Seriously Q I love this! *applause*

Author's Response:

oh thank you so much, s.

i'm so glad it rings true.

arthur was aged by losing children in the war. his idealism has been hit pretty  hard. nothing matters to him more than his family.

Date: 02/09/2007 Title: Chapter 8: Chapter Seven - Whole.

I like how you do this chapter past the ritual. It gives us a lot more insight into their feelings this way.

"She had seen them together physically, but nothing had prepared her for the sensation of seeing their souls seep together, to become one mass of ... of RonHarry." I really like this imagery you create here.

" and she had kissed him. His ability to form words was leaving him and he couldn't explain that he wasn't afraid of that at all. His fears all were directed towards her. That he would be letting her get away. That she would think less of him somehow. That she would doubt his love for her, or wouldn't know how he needed her even as he longed for Harry."
Oh Lord Q that is just amazing! It is so Ron! I love him so! He has so much love!

there is so much that I could quote for beautiful language. I love how you write - so lovely.

"And after this ritual, this complete meld, of Harry's soul with Ron's, she knew that he had seen her with different eyes. How this would affect their triad, she could only guess. She trusted they would work it out. They would stay together and grow together."
and this is what makes your story different from so many others. there is not perfect love or the same love on all three sides, instead it is moving and changing.

""All day when I've thought of doing this--" he rubbed his hands up Ron's long thighs, and Ron had felt the strength of the muscles rippling under his own freckle dusted skin, felt it as Harry did "-- I was feeling this longing inside when I imagined myself taking you. Inside you." Harry's fingers had found their goal and were probing and stroking.
"Merlin, Ron. I've wanted this for so long."
He had felt Hermione grip her wand and start the movements that would initiate the ritual. She had kissed him again as Harry's voice echoed around his head.
"Me too, Harry," he had replied, somehow. Not with words. Hermione was whispering the incantation into his mouth. "I could have gone my whole life and never acted on it, but it was always there.... always." He'd gasped as Harry had finally entered him, and the spell took effect."
WOOHOO! Q writes the smut!!! And it's perfect! It's lovely H/R hidden in Trio!! SQUEE!!

"He stretched out his awareness and realized for the first time that the darkness was really gone. There was no more shadow sucking his thoughts from the back of his mind. No murky cloud souring every good feeling with fear and pain and anger.
For the first time in what seemed to be a lifetime, he felt whole."
They made him whole. OH I love this so much!

You are so great! I am very proud of you! I wish I could use my "I fangirl Q" icon. Because I do fangirl YOU! *big squishy hugs*

Author's Response:

thank you dear one. i was so very nervous of this chapter that it would be a real anticlimax. i hope i managed to convey the fluid way the relationship grows and develops.

WOOHOO! Q writes the smut!!!

 shhhhhh. don't tell anyone! and it's only KINDA smut...

Date: 03/01/2007 Title: Chapter 9: Epilogue

OH NO the epilogue *cries*
wait....she says there will be more...YAY!!!

from the moment he'd really felt free to give them his heart in the way he'd known he should for so long?
finally Harry! He can finally accept their love.

He loved the little triangular patch of hair at the base of Ron's spine, and the soft down that covered his arse.
I do love your descriptions they are perfect!

He knew that Ron and Hermione still needed each other. But that was ok. Because they needed him too
I so love how you craft their relationship. They have different personalities and need eachother for different reasons. I am astounded by the different ways you show that!

Whenever Ron smiled at him, or Hermione brushed past him, or either spoke quietly in his ear, the bubbly, catchy, tingly feeling would be back
this is so sweet. beautiful words you use here. You really capture that feeling!

a pair of arms would slide around his waist and a stubbly chin would nuzzle at his neck. "Mmmmmm... smells good," Ron would murmur, "and breakfast looks all right too."
domestic love is so my kink! so lovely!

He was head over heels in love with his two best friends
BINGO!

Little Charlie giggled. "Harry said arse."
"Charlotte," her mother said, "would you go and bring the sugar, sweetheart? Harry seems to have forgotten it."

AHAHA!!! Charlie is so sweet! And Hermione is so good as a mother!

Harry just smiled back at him, aware of a giddy lightness settling over his features. Ron looked from Hermione to Harry before throwing his head back and laughing. He wrapped a long arm around Hermione's shoulder, squeezed, and then bent down to capture Harry's lips in a kiss as he muttered, "About bloody time."
someone needs to draw this! SO perfect!

But for now they sat and ate, and drank and cried and laughed and talked about all that they had lost, and all that they had not lost.
*cries*

I know you worked so hard on this and I have loved it sooo much! Thanks for this beautiful, beautiful story! *loves you*

Oh beautiful!

 

So you kissed me there beneath the stars. Had I never known of magic or seen its power, on that night I would have believed.

I think that phrase was my favorite.  But I loved this! Wonderfully descriptive and passionate. *squishes you*



Author's Response: thanks I love a good squish.
