Hello again! Yay, 1000 reviews!!! :)
Author's Response: Thanks!
Hello, I'm reviewing again - twice, because I want to have the 999th and 1000th reviews in such a great story. It's a mark of how great a story is, that it gets 1000 reviews. Also, again, PLEASE write a sequel!!!
Author's Response: OMGoodness! Am I really up that high? WOW. Thanks for pushing me over the top.
Who on earth could have murdered the Dursleys? Dudley couldn't have done it, could he?
Author's Response: Couldn't he? Dudley's never been stable, has a temper, and I think could be easily influenced if someone wanted to use him...
i hope u have a sequal because i don't think i've ever read such a good fanfic
Author's Response: Oh, thanks so much. No sequel planned at the moment.
Thank you. Loved this fic.
Author's Response: Thanks! Glad to hear it.
Author's Response: Thanks!
You might not answer this, but did Dudley do it? What a fantastic way to end the story, not to mention unexpected!
Congratulations on finishing up and on all the success you've had with it. I'd love to see more of your stories as time goes by and I know they'll all be as great as this one!
Author's Response: Thanks! Yeah, it was Dudley, but the whole story is only loose in my head. I think he would have had help...some sinister help.
AMAZING!!! I LOVE THE ENDING!!! YOU'RE AN AMAZING WRITER, I LOVE ALL OF YOUR STORIES, BUT THIS ONE IS BY FAR MY FAVORITE.
Author's Response: Thanks very much I had a ball writing it.
Wow, Melinda, I really loved that ending. I'm so sorry I haven't been reviewing the past few chapters, but for some reason, it says my review has been added, and it never appears. I have a plan this time though, heh heh heh...
I really loved this epilogue, it was just so well written, and I love how you've written Harry...which I always have, but I really enjoyed his character in this chapter, I can see him as a sort of nervous father, but loving every second of it just the same. And leave it to Hermione to want to wait for everything to quiet down...again, I can totally see her as a nervous bride, upset because things are out of her control. (I was the same way, my personality is very close to hers!) It was just a beautiful ending, I think the best you've written, and I loved every second of it. I hope you'll keep us posted on the list if you write a one shot, and when you get that book of yours published...I'll be waiting to purchase it. Great work!
P.S. Am I right thinking in the end we have a wannabee Lord Dudders? =)
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Join the mailing list off my website if you like - I'll post any new project ideas there first. I think Harry would make a great dad, nervous, but he'd throw himself to the task whole heartedly. He's got so much love to give.
Ahh... guess your happy now... even thought i'm not... :P
I had hoped for å bigger aftermath, but this one did kinda sort it all out... But frightened to death?!?! I just can't see dudley do a murder so smart, and since Tom was so clever, Dudley shouldn't be a big problem for the wizarding world to sort out, he didn't even go to school :P
Again: The best fiction on mugglenet, and I do belive you could rival Jo with this ending. Lets just hope she have a happy ending too. I couldn't stand to see ginny or any other weasley (Percy excluded) die.. Thx for the story, and I'll be re-reading it every time I feel the need to read a complete book seven... (since this is the best of them all... :D )
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it. Although not nearly as smart as Riddle, Dudley did prove charasmatic enough to have his own gang as a young kid. If someone were to take him under thier wing, tutor him...someone darker and sinister...I think Dudley could grow into a horror. Hee.
Bit annoyed its finished, but it couldnt go on forever unfortunatley. oh well. it was really really good. I like how you have left room for another story but the idea of Dudley as the next Voldemort is impossible for me to imagine i am sure alot of people will agree here.
Anyway excellent work. I hope my own can be half as good as yours - once i find a beta that is.
Author's Response: Hee, actually, the response to the idea has been overwhelmingly positive. Besides....whoever said Dudley has to be acting alone ;) Glad you enjoyed it.
Wonderful story and extremely well done. Even the parts I didn't like (few and far between) were still very well exicuted. Sad news about a sequel but I will certainly be looking forward to anything you post. Great Job!!!!
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it.
Why'd you have to end it like that???? Now it seems like Dudley is gonna turn into "Mini-Voldemort"!!! Now you HAVE to have a sequel!!!!!
Author's Response: Heh, it appears that's where Dudley is headed, doesn't it?
P.S.- I'm actually glad you have no sequel planned- because I think it's better to leave us hooked on it like J.K. Rowling's going to do, and leaving it with an amazing cliffhanger is great! I love to leave speculating on things and you ended it just perfectly!
Author's Response: Aww, thanks! I'll admit the plot bunnies are restless, but I really want to try something original next.
Wow- what a way to end it! I loved it! Although the news about the Dursley's is a tad unsettling. Ah, well- I loved the interactions between James and Harry, it's still so weird to see Harry as a father- all grown up, it's hard to think that he's really a man now, and not a little boy going onto the Hogwart's Express for the first time.
I've loved this story and can't wait to read more! (Whether it be the one-shots, or a new story *hint hint* haha) It's been a real pleasure reading this!
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you liked Harry and James' interaction. I think Harry will make a wonderful father one day. He has so much love to give, and I think it's always easier to express it to a child.
hmmmm that ending sounds very familiar... perhaps Dudley is going to be the next dark wizard!
Author's Response: Hee, sounds a bit like Tom Riddle, doesn't it? Hee.
It's strange, because I just finished reading Power of Emotion and Curse of the Damned. I'll take this opportunity to say, please write sequels to one, if not both, of your fics. You are probably my favourite author, and I would sure as hell add you, along with this fic, PoE and CotD, to my favourites if it wasn't bad luck to everyone I have added so far.
Author's Response: Oh, thanks very much. I'm thrilled to hear you've enjoyed my stories.
i really like the end of dursleys and the way you connected them with the rdidles...........
its fantastic not only this chapter but the whole story....
and as urs was the 1st fan fic i ever read it holds a sp. place for me... it is bittersweet to knw its over....
plz right anthr fan fic soon
Author's Response: Oh, thanks. I'm honored to have been your first fic. I think we always remember our first, so I'm thrilled! So glad you enjoyed it.
wow. what a story! it was constantly good, no, amazing! i couldn't find something better other than somethign by j.k herself!
Author's Response: WOW. Thanks very much. That is a huge compliment, and I'm thrilled you enjoyed it.
OMG I love it! That's gotta be the best ending in all fanfiction! I think some one-shots will be awesome, too. I like that it's a happy ending, almost. I knew something was up with Dudley, and this is extremely fascinating, how you've left it off.
It's been an amazing journey, and I'm very glad I discovered your writing. Your stories will definitely help to pass the time until book seven comes out. Thanks for all the hard work you did to make such a wonderful story possible. I loved every minute of it.
Author's Response: Oh, thanks so much. I'm thrilled to hear I helped to pass the time. I just wish we knew how much more time there would be to wait!
