Lovely. This is wonderful work.
"He had rehearsed what he was going to say to her in front of Fawkes several times, and the loyal bird had been quite encouraging."
All I can say about that line is that it made my day. I have been laughing about that ever since I read it, and many people have been giving me some funny looks. It's just so funny and so sweet that it makes me want to laugh and cry at the same time.
Secondly, I love the way that you have indroduced how they came to realize their love for each other. I have read a couple other fics with this ship, and it's always just "Oh my gosh, I think I love you. But we can't have a relationship with Voldemort out to get me". This is such a new, fresh approach (for me, anyway) and I really enjoyed it. I especially love the fact that whenever Minerva was awake, she thought of Albus. It's just so sweet!
Awww! This is so cute!!! I've been an AD/MM shipper since day one, and this one is beautiful! It is a bit disappointing that all the AD/MM fics are One-Shots or two chapters at the most. I'm trying to write one now that's several chapters. MNFF wouldn't post it, but it'll be in the queue at HPFF soon. You should check it out! My penname is the same there as it is here. By the way, your story was very well-written and I enjoyed it very much!
Author's Response: There is a second chapter to this story, entitled "Intimate Communication". Unfortunately, it's not the sort of thing that Mugglenet will put up. However, you can find it at The Digital Quill or at the Lumos section of the Sycophant Hex website. ;-) Thank you very much for your kind words! :-)
Hey, this is beautifully written and very in-character for both of them. Albus is his usual quirky, forward self--and Minerva is restrained but just open enough to accept love :) They are an odd pair to me, probably because they've been friends for SO long without any canon declaration of love between them--but an event like the Stunners at the end of OotP could well prompt any of the duo's latent emotions to be realized! Fabulous imagery and metaphor--wonderful intro to the ship for me... :) 10/10
Author's Response: Thank you very, very much! :-)
Hey, sorry I haven't reviewed until now, but I just joined recently and was browsing through the pages of fics. :) I've always loved the idea of Dumbledore and McGonagall, and you did a very, very good job of portraying an in-character romance. Their actions were not at all unlike what I could see them doing- wonderful story. :D
Author's Response: Thank you very much! :-)
i dont no y i didnt review b4 but i will now i wish there were more fics like urs i love AD/MM
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)
this is one of the most adorable fics ever!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)
Wow. That was excellent. Is excellent. AD/MM are great fics and it was very romatic and nice. I love it!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed it! :)
You made me believe in romance again!
Author's Response: Wow! I'm glad I could perform such a service! :)
Wow, what a romance. They were both so wiselyromantic about it. Just reminds you of old romance movies. great story.
Author's Response: Thank you very much! :)
that was very good - i loved the very last bit. "you have my permission" i must admit DD/Mc fics seem a little weird to me - not because they're 60+ but because JK said that DD is 150 and Mc is 70. Meaning DD was 60 when Mc was born - talk about cradlerobbing - ::slaps Dumbledore's wrist:: But anyway - yes, very nicely done.
Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)
Hi there! Nice to meet another MinervaMcGonagall/AlbusDumbledore supporter! I love the story, it's not OOC. I write mainly Harry/Hermione but I was seriously considering a McGongagall/Dumbledore. Anyhow, great job with the story! I love it! Can't wait for more:)
Author's Response: Thank you very much! :) There are quite a few AD/MM supporters out there. Check out http://www.infinite-incantatem.net/
