Wow!! I keep thinking this story will end, but it doesn't! And still it doesn't seem drawn out or artificially prolonged, but just great! I really love this fic! In fact, I'm not sure I'll be able to be satisfied with the real book 7 when it comes out, not after this masterpiece!
Can't wait to read the epilogue, too, although I am very sad that this is the second to last chapter. *sniff*

Chapter: Chapter Eleven: Two Serpents

This is the best rendition of the final battle that I have ever read. I'm afraid even JK Rowling's version, whatever it will be, might pale in comparison to this.

You're not only the best fanartist online, but you're also the most brilliant author when it comes to keeping true to canon even when going beyond it. Something that, personally, I would never have managed.

Author's Response: What a kind review! Thank you so much, SerpentClara - I couldn't be happier that you enjoyed it! :D

Chapter: Chapter Thirteen: The Scar

I feel kind of mean by picking at this, but on the HP Lexicon, it says:

At the end of seventh year, each student sits a Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Test (N.E.W.T.) for each of the classes he or she takes. These are standardized tests administered by the Wizarding Examinations Authority, given at the same time and apparently in the same way that O.W.L.s are given to fifth-year students.

W.O.M.B.A.T.s are the tests JKR put up on her website for HP fans, I think.

I couldn't come back here to check for a review responce without reading again ;)

I love it. I love Ron and Hermione! :D

Author's Response: Thank you for pointing me to the Lexicon (I love that site)! After perusing both the O.W.L.s/N.E.W.T.s page and the W.O.M.B.A.T.s page, I gave the matter some thought. Basically, I decided not to change it - not because I think you're wrong (because clearly, you're right!) - but because this Wizarding Aptitude test that JKR made us take might just be a Book Seven hint. In America, if that's where you are, loads of people take their final exams, but then they take the S.A.T.s - something general that is not covered by the other subjects we take in school so much as it tests one's ability to think logically and creatively. So seeing as I am too close to the 10,000 word limit to make significant alterations and include them both, I'm just going to pretend that the W.O.M.B.A.T. is the more significant test - one that defines Harry as a functional citizen of the Wizarding World rather than measures his aptitude as a student. Sound good? :) Anyhoo, thank you again for reviewing and for checking that out for me! It definitely helps! :)

Chapter: Chapter Thirteen: The Scar

Better make this quick, the review I just typed didn't go through. All in all, I was not one bit disappointed. A wonderful chapter that is going to keep me anticipating the epilouge every day. And I figured out the symbolism of Harry's dream! (Bumblebees with white beards, bumblebee = Dumbledore. Right?)

Author's Response: I'm so glad you came back to tell me what you thought - seems MNFF has been having a few glitches with reviews today. Anyway, thanks so much - I worried a bit that people would be let down after waiting so long for this chapter, but if you liked it, then all the better! *hugs*

Author's Response: And I almost forgot! You are spot on in your interpretation of Harry's dream! Well done :D

Alright Iím resubmitting because MNFF seems to have this thing against me and keeps dumping it. If this shows up more then once I apologize. I just wanted to make sure you get the good reviews you deserve.

V, you managed to pull another rabbit out of your hat on this one sweetheart. Itís beautiful. Every single word of it is beautiful. I read it last night even though my eyelids were far too heavy to be staying up that late. I wish that I could have reviewed sooner, but hey itís the day before Thanksgiving and weíre doing most of the cooking so things have been a bit chaotic. Depending on how the night goes Iíll have a longer response for you when I have the time to organize my thoughts on everything. The scars old and new, seen and unseen, I have so much to say about them. You did an amazing job with this chapter. I couldnít have asked for more. Itís superb and so are you.

Happy Thanksgiving! I know what Iím thankful for this yearÖa little love in Harryís world and finding a friend in you. *big hugs to you* On my wish list for Christmas is the epilogue if you can find the time. But I donít mind waiting till Feb. if you need more time.

Author's Response: You already know how much I look forward to your thoughts about my writing. You've become such a big part of this writing experience, and in the spirit of Thanksgiving, I just wanted to say that I'm thankful that this story made us friends!

That was well worth the wait!! I loved it. Absolutely amazing. The whole scene with Harry and Ginny at the end was probably my favorite parts of the chapter. It was one of those moments where I sighed happily because of all the love Harry and Ginny have for each other. So touching and emotional. :)

There's not much more I can say besides how wonderful this is. I'm eagerly awaiting the epilogue!

Author's Response: Aw, thanks so much! I wanted Harry and Ginny to get their just desserts! :D I'm thrilled you enjoyed it!

Chapter: Chapter Thirteen: The Scar

fanstastic job this ending was perfect, or i guess it's really a beginning as well, there were some especially wonderful parts in there like when lupin is explaining to Harry why it's not his fault, and then at the end when harry says they're free right before he kisses her, they were definatly some of the most moviing. i could go on but i won't so fanstastic job! and have a Happy Turkey day, that is if you live in the US and celebrate it. i keep an eye out for the epilogue sounds exciting!!

Author's Response: *squee* I'm rather fond of the "We're free" line as well. Sometimes "I love you" doesn't quite cover it, ya know? Anyway, thank you so much for the review! Maybe we'll get an epilogue by New Years? Hmm...

Chapter: Chapter Thirteen: The Scar

You make every chapter so worth waiting for. I am always in awe how much thought and detail you put into weaving your story together and how it fits so perfectly with canon. You deal with so many aspects of the story in a very believable way. Everyone's so in character, that it's hard to imagine that this really isn't Jo's work. I like the Harry/Ginny bit - it wasn't over the top, it wasn't overly mushy, it was just right. And eyebrow waggling Ron - hilarious! And yes, Dumbledore's man through and through. Amazing job, V!

Author's Response: You could give Harry a run for his money with the way you make a girl blush! *turns bright red* Thanks so much for your review - I'm glad you thought the H/G wasn't mushy, because I was definitely concerned about that bit! ;)

Wow. I'm at work--where I swore I'd never stay long enough to log on--but I had to review. You've made me cry again! I've always told my creative writing students that making my laugh and cry (or want to crawl under the bed and hide) was a guaranteed good grade. A++++++++++++++++++++++++

As always, simply amazing! This was well worth the long wait. I wonder... got any plans for a sequel to this nearly-finished fic? ;)

Author's Response: Thank you Moony! As to a sequel, there won't be one, I'm afraid. HOWEVER, there will be a prequel! "Forbidden Grounds" is being plotted as we speak: the story of Ron and Hermione's romantic resolution. There are hints scattered throughout Chapter 13 that address what has happened between them, so it'll be fun churning that out once the Epilogue to this one is done :)

Please, not another four months! I wont be able to stand it!

P.S. Aren't the wizarding test for 7th years N.E.W.T.s? Rather that W.O.M.B.A.T.s?


Author's Response: Thank you, Lisa! Hopefully there won't be too much of a holdup between this chapter and the epilogue (a family tragedy kept this chapter on the backburner for a long while). In any case, I'm so glad you liked it! PS: I'm pretty sure JKR recently spilled the beans that WOMBATS are the 7th year test... Anyone want to check that out for me? ;)
