Don't Scream
Poor Charlie. People don't write about him enough (I don't either), but they should. He such a nice person. Evil of you to kill him though.

I loved Charlie's ex-boyfriend attitude... Was Tonks the one who dumped him? He took it well. But you always write people and their feelings and their surprising and unreasonable behaviour so very well.

Wonderful story with a great background.

I only killed him so that JKR wouldn't!!

you always write people and their feelings and their surprising and unreasonable behaviour so very well.

*dances excitedly* That's such a nice thing to say. People do have surprising and unreasonable behaviour a lot in real life, and my struggle when I'm writing is always that I want my characters to behave reasonably and sensibly.

I can't stop smiling!

Poor Charlie.

I know.

I'm sort of hoping that because I wrote it, JKR won't have done!

This is wonderful. It's been a while since I read fic and this was a perfect one to bring me back in. It wasn't too angsty, although it held plenty, and not cheesey at all. Perfect mix of everything. Great job!

Didn't much like your Charlie (at least as far as how he interacted with Tonks), quote]

Oops! No offense intended...I see you love Charlie. Me, too, really. Didn't like his button-pushing, though...

Hey, that's okay, you're entitled to your opinion. I was trying to show him with someone he's known and been close to for a long time (hence knowing all the buttons to push) and also scared but trying not to show it. Which doesn't make for the most immediately lovable combination.

She won't...the book is DONE. It's just gonna take 6 months to get to us.

Finally a story with a realistic idea of what that poor little house would be like after so long. Didn't much like your Charlie (at least as far as how he interacted with Tonks), I'm afraid, but didn't dislike him enough to wish Bellatrix on him. The only Weasley who might possibly deserve her is Percy, and even then...

Congrats on a really good short!

Yes, I know that really. Though when I wrote this last summer it wasn't.

Anyway thanks for reading and reviewing. The story wasn't meant to show Charlie at his most immediately lovable - he's pretty frightened too.

He ran, willing it with every ounce of breath he possessed, not to be. Not to be what he already knew it was.

What a heartstopping line! It freezes the reader in motion. Excellent.

Sorry, not a chance. I couldn't possibly write a story in a world where Charlie's dead - I love him too much.

I never expected you to kill our Charlie! Sob! The plot is quite action filled.

Maybe I am dense but I don't get this line-
Tonks scrambled slowly to her feet, took one long lustful look out of the window and followed them.


Is she looking at Remus or is it a 'wistful' look because she can't enjoy the reception?

I know - I said I was out of my comfort zone!!!

Oh, and that's definitely a look at Remus!

I really liked this, especially the exchange between Charlie and Tonks. Good job!

Thanks - they were really fun to write, right up until I realised I had to kill Charlie.
