    Severance

    Severance by Anna Fugazzi

    Summary: George is left behind. Oneshot, 2,654 Words.

    Why You Should Care: There’s fantastic use of repetition here that’s used to bind the subject matter, linking from section to section unobtrusively. It touches on the oft missed, mundane day-to-day of having lost someone that lingers long after the initial grieving is finished. George wants to move on, but can’t — partly because he is himself unable to let go, and partially because his family is having just as much difficulty letting go. They feed each others hurt, and it reflects back and forth to be a constant reminder of what they’ve lost, making it very difficult for anyone to really move on. Beautifully, simply written; it has an almost drabble quality.

    Why You Might Not Care: Perhaps you’ve had your fill of stories that deal with Weasleys Dealing With the Loss of Fred. Or perhaps not. I tend to think not.
