I liked it. I think you really captured Harry so well, the poor thing.

Good job!

Oh that's just too sad. Very good, but sad. It makes me wonder how the twins would be in a more serious role, that isn't really explored in the book, even when Mr. W and Ron get hurt they keep it light. You did a good job of exploring it. :)

Author's Response: Thank you so very much! I\'ve yet to ever know where the idea for that scenario came from, but it\'s been the impetus for nearly every other story arc I\'ve written. Thank you for reading and leaving your comments.

I just had to post and let you know that I enjoyed this. Never in a million years would I have thought I could like a R/G story, not my genre of choice, but you really made this good. You let them find each other through mutual comfort, companionship and love. Who knew Remus and George could be a romantic story! :) It's funny and hot and sweet. Cheers!

Author's Response: Thank you so very much! I\'m nearly certain I\'m the only George/Remus writer out there; it took a good 20 pages in the first of the series to get them together believably, but once I did, I didn\'t want to stop writing! I so appreciate your taking the time to read this rather unexpected pairing, and for sharing your comments.

whew! At first I was really hating Hermione, she needed a *thump* but I'm glad you redeemed her before the end. Poor Ron- I like how you wrote him, before, during, and after the naughtiness. .... the naughtiness was quite hot too!

I read this story ages ago, and I have no idea if I left a review - shame if not, because I leave reviews for everything!

I adore protector!Ron, shuffling to his bedside in the middle of the night (of course he hates waking and does this only for Harry) and all the tender stroking. His careful daily observations.

The kiss on the temple.... through the pajamas groping to bare sking to..... uhnggg - yes, so sweet for the boys.

And the hot, clumsy, hot, painful for ron, hot, concerned harry, hot sex. Yes. Very, very, yes. :)



Author's Response:

Hi mapleandmahogany, thank you for such a wonderful review! I'm so pleased you liked so many bits of this -- and I appreciate you telling me what stood out to you!

I'm really flattered you enjoyed this, thank you so much! <3 kaalee

(Finally! I've wanted to leave you a review forever, but the page wouldn't work. The new server is letting me now)

I've been reading this one all along and it is so sweet and the plot so convincing. I almost couldn't read it at first, I was so afraid you would make vampire!Ron evil, but you didn't, he is just as precious as ever!

You've written them so loving and bonded and still so male (I think some H/R fics have them too effeminate) I love the mental communication, he way Harry breaks down when he can't feel Ron. I love the way they play with dominence over each other and then submit to each other afterwards. guh!

I look forward to the next chaper!



Author's Response:

Thank you so much, mapleandmahogany! I have to do my responses when not on my Mac, I\'v; learned. :P Small price to pay.

I\'m so pleased that you gave this story a try; I\'d seen plenty of vampire!Harry and vampire!Draco out there, but not Ron... whom I adore, even though I\'ve been a bit cruel. Thank you for saying you feel they come across as masculine; I think of them as characters in love with each other as individuals, less about the gender, but they seem all *male* to me. I\'m glad that comes across. And that you enjoy teh sex, too. :)

My thanks, again!

Such a quiet, thoughtful chapter. It was a joy to be in Ron's head this whole time. I was going to miss a whole chapter without Harry, but you gave him to us in the memory -that was nice.

I can't wait to see them together again, can't stand to see them separated! ;0



Author's Response: I\'m so glad you enjoyed the chapter! Yes, it\'s really hard thinking of them being apart, but they forced it on themselves; hopefully they\'ll allow me to get them back together.

You used such beautful language here, it's really lovely.

I liked the moment with Charlie, most innapropriately intriguing.

"Up on your knees, lion." Harry's commanding, lusty voice in Ron's ear. -Oh - this is a nice and naughty line.

protective bear - love that!

I read Harry's changing, with pounding heart through my fingers. It's was agonizing from Ron's POV, but so beautifully written.

Be wary of this fledgling, who may or may not be yours anymore -Oh no -you're killing me with this! Please take care of them (it's your story, you keep doing your thing lady!) but take care of them!



Author's Response:

Thank you so very much! I\'m pleased that you felt the language was of high caliber; that means a lot to me. And glad you liked the lion line! *g* I\'m grateful that you felt the Changing was effective; since I got to sortof skip it when Ron went through it, I wanted this to be relatively elaborate in its monstrosity.

And Marilena... what exactly does she mean by that? Will my Muse let me know, and soon?! 

Thank you for your comments and enthusiasm; I\'m very flattered.

Oh. My.

This chapter had very different feel, a different intensity than the previous one.

Ron is so precious, but I'm still nervous about Harry. You've led us to trust Martin, but Harry doesn't trust him, and I want to trust Harry... but Ron trusts Martin.. *conflict*

Love....



Author's Response: Hmmmm... I wonder how it was different, and I\'m so pleased that you feel it\'s intense. Glad also that you\'re still enjoying it. Yes, there\'s a bit of a triangle with Ron, Harry and Martin, but my loyalties are with Ron so I\'ll be sure to take care of him, never fear!

*sigh*

I can't decide how I feel yet, I'm eagerly waiting for the epilogue.

I can't believe that Harry just wouldn't care about missing the lives of Hermione and the Weasleys. The fact that he could walk away from them, only truly loving Ron means that the vamp!Harry has lost some of the precious things about him that I love.

Still, they will be together forever now, so that's good. There should never be a Ron without his Harry, or a Harry without his Wheezy.

*sighs again* .... and thank you, I've really enjoyed this! :)



Author's Response:

"I can't decide how I feel yet, I'm eagerly waiting for the epilogue."

I left it all hanging a bit... but life's like that sometimes! 

"I can't believe that Harry just wouldn't care about missing the lives of Hermione and the Weasleys. The fact that he could walk away from them, only truly loving Ron means that the vamp!Harry has lost some of the precious things about him that I love."

I struggled with that, but given the way things were going, I felt it would be truer to the story if Harry did change a lot due to being a vampire, and it definitely means he's lost some things: his overt sympathetic humanity, for one thing. 

"*sighs again* .... and thank you, I've really enjoyed this! :)"

I'm so very glad! I've never posted a WIP before, but this story kept writing itself for the most part.

*sigh* and, and, *sigh again*

I'm so sad to see this one end. Here in the epilogue you captured that epic, romantic, intrigue that the whole story has carried all along. Such beautiful language and imagery.

The smut was toe-curling yummy. The handles on the wall, and Ron's hand joins Harry's on one. oi! yes! Nice use of the word "pistoning" heh!

I'm still sad for them and their time apart and the way the Change affected Harry. He didn't seem to really care about Hermione's death, aside from wanting to comfort Ron. *sigh again*

I've enjoyed this, thank you for sharing it. :)



Author's Response:

Thank you so very much for your comments! I was teary finishing it... in many ways I didn't want it to end, either, but I didn't want to potentially bore people and it seemed like the appropriate place for this to come to a close.

Glad you liked the smut! Had to write one more hot scene before leaving the story, lol.

Yeah, Harry took to his immortality far more quickly than Ron, but as Martin warned both of them, staying immersed with mortals can make a vampire mad because there's just so much loss... at least Harry was there when Ron was ready to move on.

I'm so glad you enjoyed this- I loved writing it, and hearing the characters tell me what I should do next. Thank you for being along for the ride!
