That was a wonderful story. I am really quite impressed with you. I am usually disappointed with fanfic, but you have given me something to get excited about while I'm waiting for the real thing. I'm off to read your next piece of work.
Author's Response: Aw, thanks. heheheh... between you and me, the way I started this was like the way a lot of people start, I think. I read enough fics and eventually the thought came in my mind, 'I think I could do better.' I'm glad I gave it a shot. Thanks.
finally!!! I can move on to the next one! this was a great story, the plot was so well thought out and described. Your descrption skills are spectacular!! I have heard from a friend of mine that Epilouges 2 is one of the best fics she's ever read. I can't wait to go read it. Oh, by the way, I love Switchfoot!
Author's Response: Mind if I ask who this friend is? I'm just curious. And Switchfoot aren't bad, they definitely give me a rise or two if I got them on at the right moment. I'm glad you enjoyed Epilogues thus far, and am looking forward to your reactions in part two. I'm honored by your praise, and hopefully looking forward to more of it, thanks.
*is crying* that was so romantic =p
Author's Response: Aw, thank you so much.
o m g that was so unexpected and great. I cannot wait to finish this one to get to Epilouges 2
Author's Response: Hehehehe. Easily my favorite chapter to write. I loved writing the conversations, most specifically, I LOVED writing Dumbledore... Gotta find more excuses to write Dumby dialogue.
that was amazing great chapter
Author's Response: Thank you so much, this was probably one of the toughest chapters to write.
Second chapter, WONDERFULLL!!!!!! I loved it! The plot is soo good
Author's Response: Thanks, again, another chapter I liked writing, I loved pulling Harry from the magical world completely and it gave me a chance to kind of get more mainstream with the storytelling. Thank you.
Okay, let me say, that was amazing to open with. I really enjoyed it. The description details are rich and you can really picture it in your head. Great job!
Author's Response: Thank you so much. You know, this chapter almost got cut completely, but I'm glad it didn't, I had so much fun writing it, and while the internal conversation is something I will always feel is a bit off, I think there are some good bits in there too. I particularly loved describing the scene for this chapter as prior to this I hadn't had much of a chance to get into some good dark description before.
that was awsome! i actually read the number II first accidenatlly and now i understand what happened and why!! this is really great and keep it up!!
Author's Response: Thank you, and tut tut for reading part II first. Actually, I understand, and it's cool. I"m just glad you came back to read this one. At the time, when I finally finished it, I was so proud of myself for what I accomplished here. Thank you so much.
How you can write this without getting tears all over your keyboard, I can't say. I was red-eyed for hours afterwards and couldn't think of anything else except the sad parts like when Ginny said, “No, Harry. You can't… I won't.”
Or the funny parts like when Fred said, "He'll probably lose some parts that he'll need later."
"This is one of the best fanfiction stories I have ever read" is, if applied to this fic., the biggist understatement of the century.
Author's Response: Thank you so much. To be honest, sometimes my keyboard does get doused with tears. I think that's the trick, you know? Thanks so much.
Powerfull... Dark... For the (3rd?) time, I have to say this does not only match JKR's writing, but goes above it!
Author's Response: wow and you haven't even read Everybody Does It yet. This is incredibly high praise, and I mean I don't know if I could agree that I'm better than JKR, but you really have no idea how wicked awesome it is to hear someone say it anyway. Thank you so much.
I won’t say it was a nice story, because that wouldn’t be doing it enough justice, it was more than that, was touching, moved every fiber of my body I felt every emotion as I read it, made me cry from despair to happiness as you related every passage, and it was not the first time, Right Here made me feel the same way the first time I read it – yeah I’ve read it more than once –. I just wanted to tank you for writing this and I’ll keep reading everything you write.
Author's Response: Thank you so very much. I love writing emotionally, and this is why. It's overwhelming to be able to connect with people on such a deep level, you know? Anyways, I appreciate it, I thank you, and look forward to more reviews from you.
Wow. I knew you were an excellent and emotional writer, but was…WOW. Forget crying, the vows, I broke down. Just absolutely beautiful, my favorite so far of your works. The vows I can’t get over. Perfect to the tee they were. Perfectly in character…you…wow. Amazing, I felt horrible for Ginny. And you can tell I’m emotional when I’m speaking in random jumbles without any usage of grammar. Which shows me it’s time to shut up and go read your next story.
Author's Response: Wow. Okay, thank you so much. You know I'm very proud of this story, it was so much work and so difficult to write at times, and when I first posted it, it didn't get hardly any attention, so this latter day resurgence of this story is very heartening. I'm particularly glad you liked the vows, that was a very harrowing experience, and I seriously fretted over them for some time. I'm glad they came off well. Thank you ever so much, I'm very honored you enjoyed it.
Awwww....I love the ending. But why must your stories be so morbid? You're killing me here. It's like you spend all your time putting together something, and then, out of nowhere, you tear it apart, destroy it, crush it into little pieces.
You drive me insane, but you are an excellent author. Just please make us a story that's NOT filled with misery and woe.
Author's Response: Probably fat chance with that one, sorry. I know my strengths, and dark angsty hormonally driven chaos is just my thing, I think. In truth, I love to write emotions and It's just that everything I write tends to go that way. Thank you so much, and hopefully one day in the future I'll do something whacky and try and write a comedy. Oh wait, I did that and it still turned into an angst fest.
you have a talent for writing
Author's Response: I am so honored, thanks.
i must say i love the imagenation and detail
Author's Response: Thank you so much. I love the description aspect partly because if I can make myself see the scene, and feel it and smell it and hear it, then it's easier for me to get into character, you know?
You make me weep with this story. Truly weep. Is this your own spin on Book 7? I'm not sure, but I still weep....
Author's Response: No, I refuse to do a sping on book seven. Refuse. I have no idea what Jo is going to do with it, and whill therefore not even try. What the Epilogues is is if you haveread interviews, JK said that the last chapter of book seven will be a kind of epilogue. One chapter will be the end of the hp universe. I am replacing that one chapter with three consecutively longer stories (you can read the series description for Epilogues to get a breakdown of each).. Those three stories are set up with the two pre horcrux hunt stories Right Here and ONe Good Day. I'm glad you're really into it, and all I can say is thank you and KEEP READING!!
You know its well writen love stories like this that are really hard for a single guy to read. lol, but i apreciate the uplifting feeling i get as I read them.
Author's Response: hehehe.. Well dude, I'm glad that you enjoyed it, and I already know you're reading part II. So, thanks for everything.
Very Well Writen. I cried at the end of the wedding. Amazing
Author's Response: I'm so glad you thought so. The vows were particularly tricky. Very honored you cried. Thank you.
I Loved the Squib part. Total Shocker. Keep it up
Author's Response: Thank you very kindly
WOW, You have certainally kept my heart just a-pumping. I kept saying, "Just go in Harry, Just go in". You have an excellent writing style and i think JK Rowling would be pleased to see what you have done with her characters and how you intergraded your own into the story.
(P.S. I've also started reading your newest story and cant wait until the next chapter)
Author's Response: hehehe... I really don't know what to say about that other than thank you, and I'll keep up on the next chapter as best as I can.
