Harry's cheating... I am sure of it. Let me kill him, let me punch him in his adorable nose

If he is cheating I am leading an army into battle

I just wanna punch you in the face, Haz. Come on Man. Step up or I'll happily take River away from you -waves Bi Pride flag-

I'm really loving this story, I keep re-reading it because it's that good

Welcome, new reader! I'm so happy you could join us!
You've perfectly analyzed Harry and River's relationship dynamic. River can easily come off as whiny and demanding (although she is pregnant) and doesn't always give him credit where his credit is due. You really hit the nail on the head here : "when he doesn't mistreat her.. he just doesn't treat her at all I guess." Lol. I have to laugh because it's so true and part of what makes Harry so complex. He's very stingy with his emotion but still gives off the vibe that he deeply cares about River and his unborn baby. You may very well be on to something when you mention that Harry may not have been taught to express his emotion which could result in the way he act now.

I already like you as a reader because I LOVE your thoughts! Thanks so much for reading and reviewing!!

I love this story! I just stumbled across one direction fanfictions after years of not doing so and I fell in love with this. The plot, the characters, it all seems so intriguing and real. I can feel the tension between the two. It seems like River gives Harry a hard time, when he doesn't mistreat her.. he just doesn't treat her at all I guess. He does have some cuestionable actions that make me so mad. It seems like he was never taught how to express emotion or act accordingly to them (like when he said there was no need to act like he cared bc he loved her a few chapters ago). I really hope they can figure it out and Harry agrees to therapy or they can solve it some other way. I already like them so much. Hope you update soon! Lots of love!!

There appears to be a glitch and this comment duplicated itself.
Wow, this is such a nice review! Thank you so much! I'm so glad you're enjoying it! Thank you for reading!
