I'm sort of floundering here, my fingers hovering over my keyboard as I try to come up with something to say besides lots of flailing and sighs and a general lack of ability to put into words how much I adore your writing.

This is gorgeous. Everything about it. The imagery (oh, the imagery is so, so lovely, all yellow and golden and warm). Hugo as a single reed in a field of grass. So isolated, but the apple of his mother's eye. I love that he's her favorite, all equal parts of both her and Ron, a perfect product of their love. It's just...gah, my heart clenches and it's not painful, but a longing? I don't know. Your words do things to me and they make my insides turn to mush and my fingers are just as rambly as the thoughts inside my head.

I think it's so incredibly difficult to write a scene in 500 words and yet you do so and it seems effortless and there's still substance to it, you know? Like it's not just an empty feeling or anything. It's something I admire about your writing, no matter what you're writing.

I'm sorry this review is sort of not a very good one, but I'm still lost in the beautiful warmth of this one-shot. Your writing owns my heart.

Just lovely.

Author's Response: Um excuse me, Missy, how do you expect me to respond to a review like this? "YOUR WRITING OWNS MY HEART" ??? ??? ??? THERE IS NO RESPONSE FOR SUCH PRAISE.

The thing is, when I read this story, I'm like, cool, I did some things with color, and I'm always so so so surprised when people actually like it. I don't know why! But I think, if this counts for anything, that you have expressed your feelings in possibly the most beautiful way anyone has for this fic, which is more than I could ever hope to receive as feedback.

I remember being possessed by this story for a time. It took over me and I just wrote. And I didn't have to edit it down, because it came to me just like this. I don't know why, but that is how it happened and I remember it vividly.

Thank you sooo-ooo-ooo-ooo much for this review, I will always treasure it ♥
