Lovely story. I enjoyed reading it. I'm not clear on George & Angelina's relationship. Who did she go to the Yule Ball with. I can never remember which twin.

Should you use "pushing past" instead of passed?

Author's Response:

In GoF, Angelina went to the Yule ball with Fred.  It's not really said if they were involved or not.  Fanfic usually assumes that Angelina and and Fred were boyfriend/girlfriend at some point, but the Yule ball is the only canon thing we saw. 

The story's assumption is that Fred/Angelina were involved and it took George a while to get used to that.  I wanted to show that Fred would be more interested in George being happy than he would have been in sniping his girlfriend.

 'Pushing passed' is correct.  As Americans, we tend to use 'past' incorrectly.  The word 'past' really should only be used to denote something that happened in an earlier time.  'Passed' is the past participle of 'pass'.

Just lovely! A well done serious side of George.

Author's Response:

Thanks for the review.  I wanted to try something a little different for me to help grow my writing and I'm glad you liked it. 

While it's a serious side of George, it's important that it still be George and I hope that came through

'nuff said!

Thanks for this sweet little present, and I hope you and yours had a very Merry Christmas and please have a safe and Happy New Year!

Author's Response:

Thanks so much.  I'm glad you liked this little drabble.  This little drabble and "Reverie" really helped me get my writing juices flowing again. 

A safe and happy Christmas and New Year to you, too.

I'm such a sucker for a good George story. This is so sweet. I do like to think of the two of them in love, and helping each other with the loss of Fred. Lovely little drabble.

Author's Response:

Thanks so much for the kind review.  I actually have written George before in "The Dementor's First Kiss", but this is the first time that I wrote him as a main character.  I have to admit that I like the George/Angelina dynamic too.  It makes him seem more complete than just the joker we see. 

Congrats on your win in this challenge, it was well deserved.
