    Almost

    Almost by AuroraWest

    Summary: George returns to 93 Diagon Alley for the first time since the Battle of Hogwarts. Oneshot, 1,471 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Yes, yes: it’s another post DH George fic.  I’m reccing this specifically because I think the author does a very good job with George’s character in a way most other ‘George mourns the loss of Fred’ fics don’t, which is by way of saying that some of the twin’s delightful sense of humour manages to shine through his sadness.  At its core it’s quite sad, but there are moments where George is still George, despite having lost Fred, and that’s a hard thing to find in this kind of fic.  In retrospect, this is probably the most accurate portrayal of George I’ve read: life goes on, whether we want it to or not and whether we think it is or not, and sometimes the only way you can tell is the cracking of an inappropriate joke or the reality of dirty underwear.

    Why You Might Not Care: Sometimes it’s a little too much in George’s head, if you know what I mean.  Some of what we are told about what’s going on in George’s mind isn’t necessary, and I think those sections could have been cut, either to make a tighter story overall or to spend more time on the character study here that makes this fic unique.
