i'll be your beta, i've edited stories and everything and peosonally i think i have good sence of characterism.so i hope the new chappie's gonna be up soon.think about it, u must come up with SOMETHING SOON or i'll just throw myself off a bridge

Author's Response: ! please don't jump off a bridge over something so ridiculus! The plan for now is that I'll do yet another rewrite this weekend while removing some parts and adding a few new ideas. Then we'll see what will become. I'll update my profile when I'll have more news. I'll read a part of a book that might help me get more inspired. I do all I can think of to get this done, believe me.

'Ello again! =)
Okay, well I have just a couple of suggestions.
1. Maybe try revising somethings that [possibly] don't flow with the story. [no idea if that's even on the right track..but..]

2. Get a beta-reader. I would suggest, Rainbow. GREAT beta. [Just happens to be mine.] She gives great suggestions when one writter is having a "brain fart" as I like to call them. LOL! =)

3. Save chapter six then open up a new page and try re-typing it. Might come up with some creative and new ideas! Give it a try! =+)

4. Don't give up and read Harry Potter for help! =)

Good luck and enjoy!

Author's Response: you managed to make me smile, that's already something today. I've done about four rewrites of this chapter in the past 3 months so my guess is that... I don't know, maybe the idea just isn't that good. I'm currently in the process of finding a new beta. the one I had before was great but he hasn't shown sign of life since he worked on chapter four. It is hard to find a good beta, and one who wants to work with a work in progress. I'll keep searching anyway. I'll work on it this weekend and see what I can come up with. Thanks for the tips!

OMG WHERE DID IT GO?!?!? (Please don't jump off of a bridge!)

Author's Response: I was planning to throw my computer of a bridge, not me. This is still a hard one to take. Don't know what I'll do right now. Not sure if I have the motivation to completely change the ending and find the idea for another one. I mean completely delete what I had in mind for the 6th chapter and come up with something new. *sighs* I'll have to think about it.

AH! Well I hope your brain doesn't explode, because you need it to write your story! Don't give up!

Author's Response: ok, tomorrow's the day of the third attempt. morning beta chapter for ****, then the one for *******. Afternoon; my chapter. Rejection of chapter, friday morning. that was sarcastic. or friday will be a sob fest!

Author's Response: just to be sure, tomorrow's thursday, right? yes.

Author's Response: There it is. Again. Fingers crossed! Toes crossed! Anything!

Well, all I can say is good luck!

Author's Response: Luck, holy intervention, brain wave, ... I'll take anything!!! and now, I also have two chapters to beta for two of my regular writers. too... many... things... brain's... gonna... explode! SOON!

LOL. I would offer to Beta for you, but it would ruin the excitement of reading this story for me. Good look on the Beta-hunting. I hope the 6th Chapter Curse doesn't get you too crazed!

Author's Response: too late! this chapter is already obsessing me and it will till it's validated.

Name: h3art0f1nk (Signed) · Date: 09/02/06 12:00 · For: It's Time
Oh no! Did chapter 6 get rejected again? NOOO!!! I think you're right. Perhaps it is cursed! *screams*

Author's Response: *pulls big chunks of hair off her head* Noooooooo! Not again! *grabs a teddy bear and sobs for a couple of hours* I don't get it. If only they would send me a rejection letter to tell me what it is they don't like! I don't know what to do. *bangs head on the wall* I blame the 6th chapter curse! I,m still trying to find a beta but it's a long process. *sighs* I'm getting hopeless. I starting to hate this situation. Frustrating! and discouraging...

Author's Response: the only bright side to this situation is that if they finally approve it, it will be in less than a day...

Author's Response: (next day) I'll try and make some changes today and send it to queue yet again later. I thought about it and decided to change the beginning of the chapter. Maybe it will help the mods understand a little better what I'm trying to do.

Author's Response: change of plans... next try on Monday instead

Oops. I forgot to take off the italics. Here's the revised version of my previous review:

Hm . . . that's weird. I don't see chapter six up yet. Shouldn't it be listed with the other chapters even though it's not validated yet? Strange. . . . Anyway. You shouldn't be worried about not getting the chapter to my likings. I know I'll like it. Don't ask how I know, because I just know. I'm glad you didn't miss your deadline though! You are so awesome! *Gives you a big, squashy hug*

I hope I did it right this time. . . .

Author's Response: I have no idea what's happen between yesterday evening and now. It was listed and everything. I don't think they would have rejected it in only one day. It's defenitely aweird. I'll post in again in a minute. I haven't had a rejection letter either but that I know they have problems with. Still have time (1 hour and 1 minute) to meet the deadline. I'm off to re-submitting the chapter and thanks for you trust and encouragements.

Author's Response: Done. It is in queue. hope it will go better this time. I'm starting to think this chapter is cursed!

Friday's nearly here. . . . I hope you get chapter 6 up. . . .

Author's Response: August 31st, 2006 8:18 PM. Chapter Six = done! I'm letting it rest for a few hours to have a fresh eye to spot mistakes, mispelled words, and such before sending it to queue. No time to find a Beta. I'll try to find one while its in queue and make changes before it's validated. Just so you know; you are beginning to scare me. I'm afraid that you'll get your hopes too high and that you'll be decieved by the chapter. I still think I could have done better and it's not my favourite chapter of the lot. I like chapter two, with Ginny. Well, for sure, it will be in queue in a couple of hours. *kneels in front of the computer* Please, please, please don't build too much expectation.

Author's Response: 10:40PM *sighs with relief* It is in queue! Just pressed the 'add story' button. Now, it's up to the mods. It'll probably take some time; when they close the queue many others are waiting for its re-opening to submit so the queue always gets huge. Still. It's there! *pats herself on the back* I made the deadline! yay!

*In what is hopefully a spooky, matter-of-factly, Professor Trelawney voice* Friday's coming up. . . . I hope that chapter is being close to submitting. . . !

Author's Response: Just realize my repond to this review didn't work. Well, just check above (you review of the next day) and you'll know everything you need.

{my old user was Hermionetonks and _Just_Me_ I put the wrong email and lost my password.}
This chapter is very sentimental. I could really understand what Ron was going through and it wasn't corny at all. Not once! I really love this story and I can't WAIT to read the next chapter!

Author's Response: Glad to hear you're back. You've gone from hermione to padfoot, he?! *smiles* I wonder why... Thanks for the great review. I'm still working on last chapter and I will make my self-imposed deadline!

Name: h3art0f1nk (Signed) · Date: 08/25/06 14:00 · For: It's Time
Just wondering, but how close are you to finishing the last chapter?

Author's Response: So close but so far at the same time. I've done a complete rewrite this past thursday-friday and I think this version is better than the first one but still... I'd say 75% complete, then I'll start to beta-hunt because the one I had before is nowhere in sight and then in queue for the mods to validated. I'm more hopeful after this rewrite, I had a couple of brainwaves and some good ideas (or I think so) came up. I might work on it some more tomorrow. Give me a week and it should be in queue. I know I've said things like that before but this time I don't have a choice. Friday, September 1st, the last chapter will be in queue. There. A solid commitment. Even Houdini couldn't get out of this one. Next Friday... or sooner.

i love it it was sooooooo sad i cried i mean i really cried please write more fast

Author's Response: if you read some of the other recent reviews, you've seen that I'm having a bit of trouble with the last chapter but don't loose hope

Name: h3art0f1nk (Signed) · Date: 08/22/06 23:31 · For: It's Time
*Squealing happily* YOU'RE ALIVE!!!

Author's Response: lol yes I am!

*Wipes away tear* That it so sweet! Great story. Please, write more!


Author's Response: I'm trying, I swear! The last chapter is such a headache. Not that I'm have writer's block but more that I can't express what I want the way I want. And I won't post anything that doesn't measure to a certain standard. Thanks for your review, it's a great source of motivation.

That was really good. You portrayed the emotions extremely well and I especially loved this final chapter. It brought tears to my eyes. It's an unconventional way of exploring Ron and Hermione's feelings for each other and it worked very well. Well done :)

Author's Response: Thank you! I was aiming for different; what's the point of doing the same thing over and over again?

Name: TotalLunacy81 (Signed) · Date: 08/08/06 3:07 · For: It's Time
This chapter almost made me cry. Hermione's gift to Ron was such a surprise to me, but so perfect. Simply brilliant. Are you writing a new story?

Author's Response: Not yet. I want to finish this one before getting into another one. But I have ideas that are just waiting to be written.

Name: h3art0f1nk (Signed) · Date: 08/03/06 16:23 · For: It's Time
*Cough**Cough* A couple days, eh? (Referring to previous review.)

Author's Response: You are so allowed to rant about me. I keep putting it off because I get frustrated everytime I sit in front of that last chapter. Something's not right and I can't find what it is. I want to end on a nice note and not with a rushed, half-done chapter. I hope I can make it right soon because there are more and more ideas for other stories in my mind. But I won't write them before this one is done. I hope this will be a motivation factor. So, yes, you can rant.

Name: h3art0f1nk (Signed) · Date: 07/07/06 19:13 · For: It's Time
Are you going to update soon? Or are you done with the story? Just wondering. Please hurry and update it if you are planning to continue it!

Author's Response: There's one last chapter to post. It'll be in queue Tuesday. I have family stuff this weekend and I can't do the final correction in the middle of it.

Author's Response: Sorry, but due to beta-duties the final update will have to wait a few more days. I have two big chapters to beta for two of my regular writers and they have priority over my own chapters. Don't loose hope, people! It's still coming soon to a computer near you.
