Great chapter!! I'v been waiting for this for a while now. I hope you don't make us wait much longer to get them back together. Is Harry the DADA teacher? Update Sooner!!!!
Author's Response: I'm sorry this didn't come sooner, but it was in queue for such a dreadfully long time! Hopefully it won't be much longer! The time is come!
yes! a new chapter!! finally!! *does happy dance* wonderful job!! Yay James!! he made Gryffindor!! And how could Remus be so mean and cold hearted? how did he manage to keep that to himself all those years? And yay for Ginny going back to get Harry!! i couldn't believe that she'd walked out on him!! but it's all good now, because she is going back to get him!! Yay!! excelent chapter!! i can't wait to find out what happens next!! please don't take so long to update this time!!
Author's Response: I'm sorry it took so long to update, it was in queue for decades! And I'm glad you liked the bit about James. Remus didn't want to be so cold-hearted, but he knew he had to turn off his real emotions or he would break and tell Ginny what was going on. Don't fret...this comes into play later...
Satisfying chapter? For me, I'd have to say, no. This chapter seems like it was marking time for the main event, why it took so long for Harry to return and why now. I couldn't care less what Remus was going through.
Author's Response: I'm sorry you didn't like the Remus part. I thought it was important because Remus played a huge part in concealing Harry's faked death and that comes into play later.
hurry up and update please! I'm growing desperate!
Author's Response: My new chapter has been in queue for practically a week already, but hopefully will get posted soon!
Incredible chapter! I'm really liking this story. I really hope that when Ginny and Harry finally get back together again (of course they will - they have to!) and decide to tell the world, they start off at Hogwarts: "And the main doors to the Great Hall opened. All attention was drawn to the shadowy outline of a man and a women in the doorway. They stepped forward, into the light. Every person in the Hall gasped...". And then pour on with some really great moments! Cheering and that sort of stuff! ;) Definitely 10/10!
Author's Response: Hey, you never know...that line just might show up in a future chapter...
This is an amazong fan fic, really original. It reminds me of the tv show, LOST, you know the one? They have flashbacks every episode and it's a good show to be compared to! Honestly, I love your writing, I'll keep an eye on this one! Good luck with further chapters, I'll be reading! Tenielle x x
Author's Response: Hey, I love the show Lost, although I hadn't thought about the comparison. I like it. LOL. I hope to keep it coming, all well, of course.
This is one of first fanfics I've ever read, and I absolutely love it! I really like the way you go back and forth with the timeline, and the emotional aspect......well, you've succeeded in making me bawl like a little girl. LOL I've recommended this story to several friends who have not read fanfic yet, and I'm hoping they'll leave you reviews too as they have told me they love this story too....... Can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Wow, that's incredible! Thank you so much! The fact that you like it so much you recommend it to others, you're amazing! I hope they leave reviews, too. LOL. I hope the next chapter leaves you just as excited.
I can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: It's in queue, hopefully it doesn't disappoint!
very good writing. i really enjoy your ideas of the plot, but you are switching from the past to the present so quickly, and stuffing so much information into so little writing that it is getting really confusing. However, dont let this review stop you, i want to hear the rest. I think the latter part ofk the story is modeled after the odyssey. how everyone thought he was dead and then he comes back.please keep writing though i want to find out how the story ends, and what ginny does. accept his return or not accept his return, that is the question. GREAT JOB!
Author's Response: I'm sorry that it's confusing, I'm trying to make it better. I know that the last chapter was sort of crazy, though, and I totally agree there was tons of info in too small a space, but it was hard to put any other way. Thanks for the great review!
Very interesting. I agree with the earlier reviewers that Remus, and Harry, were nuts to agree to all this, but I'm sure that will come out later. I love the parts with Ginny and James. They're nice and light to balance the darkness of the memories. James is very well written and Ginny's grief is excellent. I like your description of the new Harry; it does sound like someone who's been gone for a long while.
The pace of all this is a little confusing, it moves so fast, but I like the way you intersperse the flashbacks with life as it is now. An interesting idea, and I'll be back to read the rest!
Author's Response: Thank you for the compliments, seriously! And I agree that the pace is sort of fast, mostly in this last chapter. It was wicked hard to right and it's probably my least favorite one, however, I'm trying to sort it out and make this next one make up for it. :)
OMG!!!!! just read ur new chapter!!! (would have read it sooner but i was grounded) any way, excelent chapter!!! i can't believe Ginny isn't going to take him back!!! this is so sad!!!! please please please hurry and write a new chapter!!! ASAP!!!!
Author's Response: Well I'm so glad this is what you do as soon as you can! :P I'm writing the next one as we speak...or...sort of anyway. LOL.
Phish needs to be fried and served to the azkaban prisioners! Harry needs to suffer for what he has done to Ginny and James. He better have a relaly good reason for following the ministry. Since when did he do that anyway? Not your best writing, but you have done wonders with the story line.
Author's Response: I agree, it's not my best writing, but thanks about the storyline. I'm hoping to keep it moving and suspenseful as much as can be. Not so predictable anyway.
Some kind of conspiracy was going on...Phish...who is he really...I dont think he is who he is telling everyone. Come on Ginny, give Harry a chance!
Author's Response: Thank you for the review, and I love that everyone hates Phish so much!
it sooo cool i loove it!!!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much!
This is my favorite on the site so far. Well written and gut wrenching. Make me wanting Harry (but don't we all?). I'll take him if Ginny doesn't. Update soon!
Author's Response: Oh gosh, thank you so much! Reviews like that make me want to write even better chapters!
Ack!! Government Conspiracy!! Booo!! Down with Phish!! I can't believe they wouldn't let Harry tell Ginny that he was alive! I can't believe didn't manage to get to Ginny sooner! And agree with below, I have a hard time believing that Remus would allow such a thing to happen, but then again, this is your story. So UPDATE SOON!!
Author's Response: Yes, yes, try to trust me just a little bit.
I have a hard time believing that Remus, of all people, would allow Ginny and the Weasley family to believe that Harry was dead when he wasn't. I just can't picture it. I did love how none of the Ministry people would look at Harry and how none of them really wanted to explain anything to Harry. They just kept waiting and hoping one of the others would speak up.
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked that, I was worried it was a bit weird. Give it a bit of time, I'll try to update as soon as I can, but don't hate Remus just yet.
Harry - get your but in gear and tell all!!!! or you will lose her!!!!! GRRrrrrrr - I have a cat that will gladly eat Phish!!!! And what the h*ll was Remus thinking in agreeing to that????? UPDATE SOON!!!! Wonderful chapter.
Author's Response: Hey, I will let you cat eat Phish if the others don't get to him first. And you don't even know anything yet.
Ginny plss don't go..... :( that was a really good chapter pls update soon.. We need good stories like yours
Author's Response: Oh, wow, thank you so much! What a compliment!
Oh that Ministry makes me want to spit! Who is this Phish guy and who made him ruler of the universe saying Ginny couldn't be told that Harry was still alive. I'm a bit angry with Remus from keeping that informaion from her! I understand the importance of not allowing the news to unsettle the entire nation, but why couldn't his own wife know her husband was still alive. Grrrrrr.... :) I guess that means you've written a great chapter to make me feel so angry at these people. I think Harry taking out Voldemort was job enough, he shouldn't be pressed into service simply because no one knows he's alive! Poor Ginny and Harry- they've been played like chess pieces and they didn't really ask to play.
Author's Response: I agree! If you care so much it means I've written a great chapter! Thank you so much! And just wait, I'm really hoping the next chapter is a million times better!
