Every time I read this, I'm happy, all over again, that Hermione is brave enough to take what she really wants when she knows it is already hers.

This is just such a wonderful story.  I have loved frost, anywhere really, but especially on windows, since I was very small.  I love the patterns, I love the icy color of it, I love the way it feels and the way it tastes.  And now, I love the way you've used the imagery of it for this tale.

When Ron fiddles around with the frost, when he thinks of Harry and tries to contemplate his own thoughts, I can feel the same obsessive interest I felt as a child.  I like the way frost simply is, it just exists because it does, and I like the way Harry's and Ron's feelings for eachother seem to mirror that.  As you've written them, they simply belong together because they exist.

Very nicely done.  I'm not a fan of slash smut, but read slash occasionally if the relationships are well done.  Something about your description led me in, and I'm so glad it did.  You've created a tender, loving, matter-of-fact relationship where gender is unimportant.  Just like life.  Thank you.  I'll be adding this to my favorites list.  (And thanks, too, for giving me a middle of the day oppurtunity to think of how nice it is to spoon in bed with my husband!)

This was incredibly touching.  I saw it under the random story heading on the main page, and nearly didn't follow it, because I expected slash smut.  (But, I did anyway, because I'm a sucker for Ireland.  smiling)

I'm so glad I did follow it.  I'm not a slash smut fan, but I am a fan of relationships, and I don't care what the genders of the players are, so long as the relationship is well written.  You've done a beautiful job here.  You could change Ron and Harry to two girls, a boy and a girl, or even two genderless rocks, and the story would still hold the same emotional weight.  I'm impressed at how much you drew me in and made me fall in love with these two, how badly I wanted things to heal and go well between them.  Very strong work.

Thank you, thank you, thank you so very much for the update!  Honestly, it's made my month!  By happy coincidence, over the last few weeks, I reread all of the chapters you had posted.  When I got to the end, I was sad to think there was no more.  Then came the notice of the update!

I was so giddy I actually had to wait until I could read it properly.  Then, when I did read it, I was so giddy I had to settle down before I could review it!  It's taken me a few days, because every time I read it, I'd get all giddy again!

Now, that I've settled a bit, let me just say how much I love your Weasley siblings!  They remind me of a pack of labrador puppies, all about the fun and falling all over eachother in their very physical affection for eachother.  The relationship between Ron and Ginny is especially sweet to read.  (I'm crossing my fingers that someday she and Harry are able to have their own happily-ever-after.  In fact, I count on it.)

This may have been a filler chapter in your eyes, but it was very important to have that, don't you think?  It makes the storyline flow well.  I have faith that Ron and Hermione will come to have confidence in their relationship sometime soon.  The emotions are all there, all they need is the trust in eachother.

Thank you again!  Squee!  I just love each and every character as you've written them in this tale!

I've been spending my time re-reading this wonderful tale.  I'll be so sad when I reach the end of the next chapter and there is no more.  I've never stopped crossing my fingers that you'll finish it someday, though.  And, I think, (only think, mind you,) that this is the first time I caught Hermione's thoughts about a critical problem with the protection spell that she was working on, and the fact that she'd just have to live with the repercussions.  That, combined with her telling Ron that she loves him enough to die for....Well - you've just set my brain clicking in a whole new direction!  And Ron saying the same thing back was just heartbreaking.  I think all of your readers already know that he's looking that possibility in the face.  Oh!  I'm off to the next/last chapter.  Thank you!

I love this chapter!  The emotional depth between Ron and Hermione is as obvious as the sexual attraction. 

The first part of the chapter is especially brilliant.  I love it when you write all the boys together, and having Ginny along only made it more fun.  Having her down a shot for the description of each brother's wife was inspired!  They'll never stop wondering!  Thanks so very much for sharing your writing!

sigh.  It was perfect.  Their strong feelings and desires came through loud and clear.  And I loved Hermione saying that it would be wonderful to have the luxury of a pregnancy scare in a few weeks.

I'm certain I've read this before.  I don't have any excuse for why I wouldn't have reviewed, (unless I read it on a different site and did review!  smile)  I enjoyed it very much.  the idea of having to choose between Mr. Right and Prince Charming is a nice premise.  (Anguishing in real life, but nice for a story!)  I like that Hermione was strong enough to admit to Robert that she just didn't love him the most.  And I really like the idea that there wasn't anything wrong with Robert other than the fact that he wasn't Ron.

It's lovely to see this from Ron's point of view.  I enjoyed him wondering about the fireworks.  That was sweet!

Sigh.  Oh, I loved the last line, "You can have this heart to break."  I'm sure she won't do that, but what a trusting offer.  (Every time I read a Harry Potter story where character says, "I shouldn't have done/said that", it makes me think of Hagrid and I laugh every time!)

I like this!  I got it from the Random Story and am so glad I followed the link instead of going to bed as I originally intended.  This is sweet and funny, too.  I especially love the last line!
