Chapter: Prologue

I have come across very few stories on here that are worth waiting months between chapters. This is one of them. I am just enthralled by the budding romance between Hermione and Oliver. Your back story with Mr. Granger was heart wrenching as well. I think you write very well.
I only have on request.... I'm sure you are busy..we all are...but PLEASE UPDATE SOON!!! :)
Keep up the good work!!

Author's Response: That is quite possibly the best praise I have ever recieved. Ever.

I know I am incredibly slow with my updates,as RL tends to keep me very busy and I made the decision long ago not to post half chapters instead; but I am dedicating myself to getting a chapter posted every three weeks, so send me all your positive energies! *lol*

Chapter: Chapter Nine ~ An Uncomfortable Affair

Hi! Iíve been reading this story for quite some time, but I havenít reviewed yet. Sorry! I just couldnít help myself after this chapter, though. Your story is so wonderful and so satisfying. I just sigh in contentment after reading it!

First of all, I just wanted to commend you for taking your time! Drawing it out like this has made Oliver and Hermioneís relationship so believable and real. They are truly getting to know each other, and they never just jump on each other the way Iíve seen some rare pair fics do. Your attention to detail and description is so lovely, and the length of the chapters just makes an update so much more pleasurable!

Honestly, this is one of the most plausible romances Iíve ever seen on this site. Though Oliver and Hermione havenít actually gotten to the love part yet, itís clear that they are on their way to trusting each other and enjoy being around each other. The leisurely pace of the story doesnít seem frustrating to me because I can tell that Hermione and Oliver simply arenít ready to move that fast. They just arenít, and you know that. *sigh* Itís just fabulous.

I love love love how incredibly in character Hermione and Oliver are! Itís uncanny! And well, no, not just them, but everyone! Iím so astounded by how spot-on everyone is. I think my favourite thing about the story is how at first you focused on how incompatible Hermione and Oliver are. But Ö as they start to get to know each other and actually have civil conversations, they are realising how incredibly attracted they are to each other and how much they like to be with each other. *squee*

Also Ö I had a major crush on Oliver after the Sorcererís Stone film, and youíve taken that sexy, Scottish image and ran with it! I can never picture Oliver any other way now. His accent gives me chills! Iíve attempted to write accents that way, and I canít imagine how you managed to pull that off! Iím seriously in love with Oliver Wood now.

Hermione too is such a sympathetic heroine. I find myself identifying with her all over the place Ė itís uncanny. Sheís strong yet vulnerable, smart yet clueless. Wow. Thank you so much for rounding her out into someone wonderful and not just a ďbossy know-it-allĒ! Youíve done an excellent job with this story from all sides. I canít wait for your next chapter!


Author's Response: Thank you so much! Your review was an incredible suprise, and very, very much treasured and loved ;-)

I know that some people (especially near the begining, when this story had yet to really find it's audience) were a bit put off by the slow pace - I can't tell you how happy I am to find that not only do some readers put up with it, but actually enjoy it more for the natural pace I've set - it's very vindicating.

I know, there's just something about that sexy Scottish accent, isn't there? *lol* I can't tell you what a nightmare it was, writing it so many different ways until I could finally come up with something readable and sugestive.

You do a great job with characterization, and I love your take on the Marriage Law!

Chapter: Chapter Nine ~ An Uncomfortable Affair

"...the phantom feel of tangled curls still brushing his nose." awww. have i said anything about good writing? and Mr Granger is so...heart-wrenching. i had no idea you would incorporate a back story like that, mrs granger dying during the war.

i can;t wait now for hermione's meeting with the old mrs wood!

and this mystery oliver holmes is in the middle of is getting on my nerves in a good way. this is trite, but i can't help say it: UPDATE SOON!

Author's Response: Thank you. Though I write each story for myself, once that story has found it's audience that appreciates what I'm trying to do, I agonize over every new chapter (and drive my beta nuts with it, I'm sure), and I don't think I fully relax until I find that I've succeeded in satisfying both my own creative impulses, and the audience who have invested in it.
LOL - yes, that meeting is coming up shortly, isn't it? Mrs. Wood is definitely a memorable character!

Chapter: Chapter Eight - Further Back Than In

"It was almost a tease, having the perfect source of potential mischief just sitting there, reading Hogwarts, A History and as inaccessible to the pranksters as Snapeís undergarment drawer." i laughed so much in this one, and you know, you also have this penchant of making humorous side comments splattered all over the chapter to make sure there are no dull moments. ^_^ im verypiqued about the malfoys, hmmm. >oh and about my guess about oliver getting infected, please evanesco it from your naughty evil thoughts!

Author's Response: Yeay! I don't consider myself a naturally funny person, so I'm always a bit afraid my humour will come out a bit lame. It's wonderful to know that I'm succeeding :-) As for Oliver, I can't promise anything...

Chapter: The Art Of Making War

have i mentioned i love the way you write enough? other authors around here just exceed the thousand word mark by some points and call it a chapter. anyway, with you, i almost have to keep notes so that i won;t forget what i wanted to remark about. i love this chapter! that was soooo sweet, waltzing in the kitchen. keep it going, mouse. this is absolutely addicting like hot coco.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! This one was one of my favourite chapters to write, next to the one I just submitted today. And yes, hot cocoa is incredibly addicting, isn't it? *lol*

Chapter: All's Fair In Love And Cabbages

i had to got to sleep yesterday, so i finished this chapter only now. im glad you were delighted with my reviews, hehe, although you have so many of them already! you see, this is what you get for writing like this. ^_^ nice spells, despicable malfoy, awww-y fred, macho oliver! oh my. i can't wait to open the next chapter, i hope oliver's ok. if he's not, i might rant!

Author's Response: Yes, sleeping is important, isn't it? *lol* I'm glad you liked the spells - they were fun to do and Malfoy is always a dispicable ferret, which makes him perfect for many stories *grins*

Chapter: Chapter Nine ~ An Uncomfortable Affair

Oh lovely. At the start of the story I was so worried about Goyle I didn't even think about Herm's dad. You develped the plot with just the rigth amount of deatil.

Just to nit-pic; wouldn't Olivar think her knitted, upper body garment a jumper, rather than a swetter? Wouldn't he recognize a muggle-wireless from it's simmileraity to the wizard modle?

Author's Response: Thank you hon. I really wanted to write a romance that was more then just throwing two people together as quickly as I could, and people have been kind enough to indulge me :-) Nit-pick away, I appreciate it imemnsely. You're right, he would have refered to it as a jumper, and I will definitely go back and change it when I do a rewrite, or further editting. The radio I was taking a bit of a leap with. I don't know why, but I've always had the image in my head of any wizard appliance as being somewhat old fashioned in appearence, and a radio of the 1950's or 60's would probably bear very little resemblence to today's sleek plastic MP3 players and cd changers. You may be right though, and I'll definitely consider it when I rewrite :-)

Chapter: So, Where Were You Planning On Putting That, Exactly?

oh, i forgot to mention how touched i am with Oliver's letters. and the blue roses! nothing short of magical. and now, this. you've put a lot of work in this one, too! quite clever to put in that back story of Hermione attacking Oliver in the shower!

but oh no, i hope that thing Oliver has seen is NOT virulent!

~still reading when I'm supposed to be completing my own fanfic, joanna.

Author's Response: You know, you are the first person to comment on the possibility of Oliver becoming infected? Go you! Now, I'm not telling if it is.... *evil smirk* I know, good reading is horrible when you're trying to get your own writing done, isn't it? *lol* I'm flattered that you find this distracting :-)
