Nearly everyone I know thinks R.A.B is Regulus, but it is a bit of an obvious choice so some of us have our miniscule doubts. Also to tell you the truth I don't care if Ron dies cause he pisses me RIGHT off. Plus he's (although pathetic) competition against Harry with Hermione. anyways before this turns into a short-story-sized comment, I'll read the next chappie.
You capture the relationship between them so beautifully, how close you can get without realising, and wanting to just hug them and be close, but you know that it's so much harder than that... well done.
OMG THANK GOD UR A H/HR SHIPPER TOO!!!!! YAAAAAAAAAAY!! RIGHT ON!
All I can say is that you are a born writer.
All I can say is that you are a born writer.
*sniffs* she didn't even hug him....
I admire you completely and totally. Beautiful descriptions.
omg wicked first chapter. You're a fantastic writer.
I read all 13 chapters in one sitting, it was great. Now you leave the whole thing with Hermione and Harry in the same room as Snape. there has to be a contiuation to this, Very rough cliff hanger, does Snape do something like help them or does he do what Harry has been afraid of since the beginning of this story does he take Hermione like Bellatrix did Ron or Narcissa took Hagrid? How does your story end with Harry and Voldemort, who else dies, who all survives?? Please continue this story, it is very good and if you aren't already a writer you should write as a profession seems to me that you have great potential at it. I also have a good idea of what you could do for a novel is have the story before harry potter first became the "Choosen one" unless J.K.Rowlings already has that planned out for a Prequel of the series.
Congrats on your win! You totally deserve that award; your story is amazing! I absolutely love it! I mean, the emotions everyone goes through is so detailed it's...WOW! I just love this story! I'm just upset I discovered it so late in the game, but that doesn't change how much I love this story! Keep up the amazing work!
P.S. Did I mention I actually cried when Hagrid died?
"Pain. Insurmountable pain, slapping Harry cold across the face, pouring into his blood and shattering his organs. It teemed through him from the inside out, aching and burning, ten thousand needles digging deeply into his skin, another ten thousand fighting their way out, leaving his veins ablaze with liquid fireľ"
This passage, literally sent shivers down my spine. Beautifully written. I'm so impressed.
Awesome Chapter, your interpretations of the charcters are great, perfect.
Nice begining, your really starting it of right and setting it up for future happenings, nice foreshadowing!
CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YOU WON THE QUICKSILVER AWARDS!!! YOU TOTALLY DERSERVE IT!!!!! I KNEW THAT YOU WOULD WIN!!! I EVEN SIGNED UP SO THAT I COULD VOTE FOR YOU!!!!! ONCE AGAIN CONGRATS!!!!
Guess who won the QuickSilver Quills Award for Best Non-Canon Romance? YOU!!! *huggles*

Author's Response: *Gapes* Oh... oh my God. WOW. *Still staring in disbelief* My God, THANK YOU! I-- I'm just completely speechless! What an incredible honor! *Blushes crimson* I'll have to come back and thank you and the others again when I'm a bit more coherent. But for now... thank you again, SO much *hugs tightly* and know that the next chapter is coming along nicely. *Bites nails* So much to live up to now! *Hugs once more and totters off in shock*
Hey! Forget all the flames! This is my favorite stories and it's one of the best out there! =]
Your faithful readers will always stick behind you 100%!! I can't wait until the next chapter because i've practically been biting my nails off in suspence!! Again, Very, very great story and i love the way you have the characters!
Keep it up! (of course you will, but still... haha)
Always, Hunniebuns88 =)
Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much! What incredible compliments. *grins stupidly* I hope you like the next chapter. :)
How can people flame this story? I just stumbled upon it and am blown away but how amazing it is! I am, first and foremost, a Dramione shipper. But this fic is just...wow, superb, spectacular and so much more. I've fallen in love with Harry again.
The little details you include in their relationship, like the way their fingers automatically, instinctively intertwine make the relationship that much more believable. And the confusion Hermione is feeling is perfectly in character. It's hard to pull characters out of their canon rut and I think you done a stupendous job of it.
I really can't get enough of this fic. I have a strong desire to just will the succeeding chapters onto my computer. Sadly, as that hasn't worked before, I doubt it will work now.
One tiny little nit-pick, it might be best if you stopped referring to Harry and Hermione's eyes as 'orbs'. To me (and to be fair my mind occasionally falls in the gutter) when you call some part of a person's anatomy an 'orb' you are NOT referring to their eyes. This just comes from me reading 'He stared at her russet orbs' or 'she couldn't tear her eyes away from his emerald orbs' one too many times and going "Wait! What?"
Otherwise, this fic is absolutely spectacular. Please update soon!
Author's Response: Awww, thanks so much! It's always especially nice when I can garner a reader who sails a different ship. That's admirable on your part, too, because most are very reluctant to read outside the box. So thank you for that as well. And your comments on my being able to pull the characters out of their "canon rut"... well, simply made my day, that did. I'll be smiling for weeks. I'm so glad you think so. And I appreciate the nit-pick as well; I'll definitely take note of that. I think I really like describing eyes, lol. They say so much more than any words or other facial feature, and it gets hard thinking of new, innovative ways. But you certainly make a good point. Thanks again, love, for everything.
Hello there. I come here again and again trying not to. Not to hate J.K.R. for not writing this way. I don't actually, however, I find myself wishing she wrote like this. I want to review time and time again... I wish to be able to think of something to say... But your story leaves me with nothing to say. It is brilliant, and it has become one of the few things keeping me going for the past month. I haven't been quite myself lately; my life was hell, I thought nothing could be right again... But the simple pleasures of life, as such, kept me going. I found hope again, and I moved on. I realise this is stupid, writing this... It makes no sense to write this here, or anywhere else for that matter, I am writing it nonetheless to thank you for writing a great story. I am also writing this to apologize if I have left any nasty or rude reviews and/or in any way offended you. It makes no sense to me, now, seeing what I wrote. I am sorry for writing such a selfish review, I realise I should be saying how much I enjoyed reading this. I am a strange person however, and haven't done so, but I hope you will not be disappointed. I wish you the best of luck and leave in hope you will continue soon.
Oh, yeah, and A7x rules! Warmness on the soul is the best song ever! :)
Author's Response: AWWW! Wow, what a remarkably thoughtful review! *Blushes at the JKR comment* By the way, it's not at all "stupid" of you to write such things. In fact, I truly respect your open ability to be honest and forthcoming. That one character trait will take you a long way, I expect. I am simply thrilled beyond accurate words that I've been able to help, in any small way, with whatever troubles life has thrown at you. It's been my absolute pleasure and honor, and I can only aspire to continue. I don't recall you ever leaving a flame, and this review is anything but selfish. It's given me a great boost in spirits at the cost of your public honesty, and that is completely altruistic. Thank you again. I sincerely hope life begins to look up for you. I realize we don't know each other, but if you ever need a person to turn to, contact me, k? *hugs* Enjoy the rest of the story!
I've been reading your story for a while, I don't know why I've waited so long to review. All I have to say is that it's unbelievable awesome! Your characterization and plotwork is right on, and your writing is has such amazing clarity. Unlike alot of the crap that is commonplace for fanfiction, this is actually has a lot of artistic prose.
Also, might I add, I was reading some of your responses to reviews, and you have far more class than most other authors. That is equally admirable. Again, great job.
Author's Response: *Blushes furiously* Oh dear, I'll be red for the next 48 hours. :) Thank you so very much. I'm deliriously happy that you're enjoying the story so thoroughly-- and my responses to reviews. It means a lot. <3
this story is f***** awsome
all those that say othwerwise should not be readin fan fics
cant wait for the next chapter
Author's Response: LOL. Wow, well... thanks! <3
