i loved it
i love the like riskyness between there relationshipp
the teacher guy still creeps me out a little i was biting my nails with the whole fighting him thing...
yeah i cryed, it broke my heart when colin was hurt so bad ='[
wow that really makes me wonder... i have always pictured myself going to school with my friends for the rest of my life... wow i dont know what im gonna do in my last day of highschool... ahhh thats scary

Author's Response: Thank you so much, and I'm glad you found a lot of things to take away from this. In truth, your final point I think hits upon the true heart of this story; the idea of growing up and coming of age. I've always wanted to write a story along those lines, one that really got into the subject of saying good bye to your childhood, and now that I think about it, there is something significant about Ron and Hermione's small role, that whole idea of these are people who are already on the other side looking back. Anyway, I'm glad you enjoyed it, and I hope to see you for the next one!

Since I am a HP fanfic addict, I have read a lot, and I mean A LOT of stories in here, but you seem to stand out somehow. It is of course your most brilliant way of putting emotion in every sentence, making the reader really feel the characters, but I also think that your never ending comments for us, allows us to fully understand, if not you personally, then your work process. This makes your work unique, for me at least.
So thank you for giving so much of your self.
Sus

Author's Response: Again, thank you so much, I'm sorry I missed you as you were reading, I usually love catching people as their reading and leaving reviews, but I've been kind of out of it. I am also greatly honored at your praise. Emotion, and as you will see in Part III, imagery and action, are all very important, but you kow, I think you're right. I tend to be very open with the process because the readers have in turn been very helpful to me from the beginning. As a result, what I think we have here, between author and reader, is a relationship that goes beyond normal. It's like we have a conversation, then you sit down for the story, and we do it again, and it really makes things so much more personal. Maybe this is part of the reason why Rod Serling and Alfred Hitchcock would preceed their shows with little personal introductions; to engender that personal relationship. anyway, thank you so much, and hope to see you plenty for the last part!

I am extremely glad that I discovered these stories after you wrote them, as waiting for each chapter to come out would have killed me

Author's Response: Yeah, especially now when I take so long to post a single chapter (sadly, I think I'm now down to one chapter a month)

Chapter: Chapter 1: Stupid

Mate, Great Story. I really enjoyed it alot. I am not a big romatic comedy fan but I really got into it. It could have been funnier, but I rekon if it was a movie then you have enough material to for laughter. It was an excellent cliffhanger, again I read it all in about 1 night (there was a couple of chapters done on the bus home). You are good with the romantic stuff, you had me wanting to get married and get my girlfriend flowers and do whatever it takes to live happily ever after. I was disappointed Harry never got to stionk Ginny. After your favorite chapter, which was my favorite also, I was hanginig in suspense for when their "unexplored areas" would finally be explored. 10 pages to go I knew it wasn't coming.... Oh well, I guess I am just being a horny 30yo single bloke. Rathius was cool aswell, I found him to be pretty scary etc, do you think he was just a little too bit deadly? He seemed to know how much water was in the ocean etc. Still I loved the whole story, beginning middle and end, it was torturous at times but the kind of tortutous that makes you want to keep reading to find out what is going to happen. Keep writing mate and if you do any new stuff, whatever genre it is in let me know cause I would love to read it. I am starting part 3 this week and I am psyked for the action adventure. Also Epilogues pt 1 including all your authors notes was 67 pages. Part 2, 168 pages. Part 3, 264 pages. Everybody does it, 17 pages. One good day, 38 pages and right here was 9 pages.

Keep up the good work

Author's Response: Man have I dropped the ball, and I'm incredibly sorry for taking this long to write a response to your reviews! My day writing job is kicking back up as well as my office job that actually keeps my rent paid. So first, thank you so much for compiling the page counts for me, and wow, I had no idea I Part III was so long! That really makes me feel good, especially considering that we are nearing the final climax and I'm still going, definitely gives me hope for when I start writing fiction outside the Potterverse! Now for the content. You mention how it could have been funnier, and it was funny because I was thinking just last night about that, and about the three Epilogues as a whole (I am doing this more frequently because with the end to part III coming, I have to get ready to write all the stuff I'm going to have to write to keep people happy about it), and I think had the first part of the trilogy ended the way I originally intended, then I think the second part would have been much more humorous. As it stands, the ending that we arrived at in part I made the general state of affairs in part II significantly less safe. I would say more on that, however, I'm going to wait until I start writing the companions as I've already decided to explain that in more depth! And you're not the only one that was disappointed that Ginny and Harry never got it on. That decision was really based on two things, the one being how I personally feel about the Harry character, and how he has developed in my offshoot of stories about him. The other thing is that I did also try and keep this age appropriate. I wanted the passion, but I didn't want to take it too far, you know? As for Rathius, and the Nightshades in the next story, they are cranked up a bit, and there is a purpose for this, but again, that I will have to wait until later to explain. Again, thank you, and see ya for part III!

Really great story. I was so mad at Harry and Ginny at times and at others I loved them both. Ratbone was wonderful and I hate Vane. Thanks for the great story.

Author's Response: Thank you so much, I'm really glad you enjoyed it. Again, I'm going to say that I really hope you decide to join me forthe final story in the series. It is by far not nearly as focused on the romance as all the rest of mys tories, but on the other hand we do see a few friends we met along the way in this and other stories, and people are saying it's the best of the bunch. Thank you again and hope to hear from you soon.

Wow, that was...that was...wow, just wow. You might have just put ColorOfAngels in her place. That was...wow. Too bad its 4am and I have to go to sleep. I loved this chapter. Harry and Ginny loved this chapter too. :)

Author's Response: I know not what you speak of when you talk about putting ColorOfAngels in her place. I'm glad you enjoyed it though. I don't write... that kind of stuff too terribly often,but thee is a little more of that kind of thing in Part III, so hopefully, I see you've finished this story, but hopefully you'll move on to part III and join us there! Thanks so much, and sory it took so long to respond to the review.

Chapter: Chapter 12: Past, Present, and Future

Thank you so much for your beautiful writing…I stayed up into the wee hours of the morning finishing Epilogues, Part II and despite the exhaustion I felt, I was still unable to sleep as a result of the emotions that you writing inspired. Unlike much of the fanfiction I’ve read, your story not only successfully balanced romance and adventure, it did so in an entirely believable manner – staying true to the characters and their mannerisms, strengths, and fallibilities as well as developing a tightly woven plot. You were able to let your imagination play out original scenes that didn’t detract from the HP novels, but rather enhanced them and subsequently, I look forward to reading more of your work!

Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much, and I really must apologize for not getting to this review until just now. At this point, I'm so busy with my primary writing endeavor I usually can only pop in to check my reviews once every couple of days. It is awesome a) that I was able to keep your undivided attention for so long, and b) that it had a lasting effect as opposed to just something you do to pass the time. I suppose that kind of goes with my mission statement after I got serious about writing fanfic, that being that I didn't want to just be a standby, something you read while you waited for the final book to come out, or following that, something you did now that the entire story was over. I think Part I was a good start, and this was a great middle, but let me tell you, I'm actually exceptionally proud of the work I've got down in Part III so far, and while I don't get to write that story as frequently as I wish I could, I'm still excited to be working on each chapter as they come. Again, thank you so much and I can only hope you'll check out both my website and hang with us for the last leg of the trilogy!

I enjoyed reading Epilouge Part II. I can't wait to read Part III. I like how Colin and Luna ended up together in the end. It was very suspenseful and I couldn't stop reading. Wonderful job!

Author's Response: Thank you very much, I'm very glad that you liked it. Also, i can't wait for you to start reading Part III; it's most definitely my most ambitious story, and from what reviewers keep telling me, it's also the best of the lot. Hopefully you'll like that one as much if not more. Thank you.

Oh crap, shejust yelled at a teacher. Maybe not the best desicion? Ginny's life seems to be kinda going down the toilet right now,huh? And what's Ratbone's problem? GREAT STORY! Just thought I'd comment on this chapter. =)

Author's Response: Well, that's me, I can't ever give my characters a break! Ratbone's problem? You have no idea how complex of a question that is, and how long it will take you to actually find out! But it's a good question nonetheless. Thank you so much, and hope to read more reviews from you in the future!

Oh my, this is just like a soap opera, Cho is BACK!! CATFIGHT!CATFIGHT!

Author's Response: Hehehe... I actually wanted to do more with Cho, make her a more prominent presence in this story, but often times, you have to let the flow of the story take you where it's going, and trying to force stuff in there just for the sake of doing so will muck things up, and I think that's where this story took me. So I'm sorry that there was no catfight, but you know, that's just how things go sometimes!

What a twist!! And Harry and Ginny almost...well you know *grins wickedly*, so steamy...very interesting imagery...i see why you would not like young eyes to read it...

Author's Response: Yes, they almost did, didn't they? Yeah, that was the action. I'm not the biggest fan of writing those kinds of scenes, so they aren't particularly prevailant in my work, but there is another such scene in Part III, but in that one, you know the context is so... different. I guess you'll see. Thank you very much!

Awww,*cries hysterically*, that last bit was so moving and emotiona...*sniffs*

Author's Response: Aw.. .You know, it's been so long since I've written this story that at first I couldn't remember what bit you were talking about, but then I remembered. Yeah, I still remember and liked that bit. In retrospect, I think I like this chapter a little bit more than the rest if for no other reason then because I think the style in this chapter is a little bit more natural for me than the melodrama that I think persists throughout the rest of the story. Thank you so much!
