Aw, poor Ernie!

Wow, I really like your stories. xD.

I wish Ernie would get to kiss Hannah just so he wouldn't have to spend the rest of his life pining on her from afar...

So sad.

This one is really sad! It is very well written, especially since you used the same sort of sentence for the beginning and the end

Gah! I feel so bad for Ernie. Wonderfully written. I loved the last line especially.

Okay. Okay, um-


So, I've never actually read anything from Ernie's POV or about him and the same goes for both Hannah and Zacharias (I hardly ever read anything from Harry's Era) but this was just- wow.

What strikes me the most? The progression and the way this fic runs. I read the first line and I was expecting romance- I was imagining a kiss and a bit of fluff and just a teeny tiny bit of angst in there (seeing as you chose it for your second genre) and, gosh, was I ever wrong.

And I /love/ that.

This- gosh, the first line is so WONDERFULLY cliche and I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only one who was fooled and gosh- I adore how the first line and last contrast and I love how this isn't your typical fairytale romance and how there isn't a happy ending, there isn't any hope for him, he won't ever know whether Hannah tastes like strawberries or not because he won't ever kiss her or be with her or GAAAH! This is just- I don't know. I don't even know how to explain why I find this so stunning and I'm probably making no sense or very little but just know that I love this and you're brilliant Anna.

It's so sad and it's so tragic and the lines and the words you picked and the style is just incredible and totally drives your points home and I can /feel/ the longing and resignation and the innocence and the sadness and just how /good/ he is all the throughout the fic and it's just so realistic! Sometimes, despite all of the happy endings on here, things /don't/ work out and things /don't/ happen and feelings /aren't/ returned for what ever reason; sometimes the boy doesn't get the girl and that's that.

Another incredible thing, as mentioned before, is how good of a person he seems to be. Even though he likes Hannah he knows she likes Zacharias and he knows the feeling is mutual and yet, still, he's not bitter or resentful or angry and if he /is/ he isn't being a jerk about it. So, I think what I'm trying to say is that I absolutely adored his character. And I adored this fic and I adore you for writing it and opening my eyes to the possibilities that lay with these characters.

I do believe that I'll have to go creep your page (sooner rather than later) for some more stories, no? ;)



(ps. Sorry the review is basically completely incoherent)

Ack, gosh, this is sad. :( I really liked how you brought Zacharias's is-he-a-good-person question into it from Ernie's eyes; it was really interesting and sad, especially, to see that despite fancying Hannah Ernie did not seem to resent Zacharias at all.

Nitpicks: "Sometimes he can't help but wonder why Hannah hangs around him." - 'hangs around him' should be 'hangs around with him'.

And my only other thing is just a suggestion. I think the last line might be even better with a comma before 'but he'll never know'. It just seems to me that that would be better pacing, though feel free to disagree on that one.

I love how you linked the first and last lines: it made it more powerful. And also, the detail of it being Zach, not Ernie, to help Hannah out when her parents were murdered brings this situation back into the wider events of Harry Potter.

Great job. I like both these ships, and you made them work for me. :)

I loved your first line, it made me want to read the story.
