Chapter: Once Upon a Time is Right Now

All 3 of these chapters are really well written, i just want to say that. Beyond that, the story was very good and you should write some more. Overall, excellent work.

Author's Response: Well, thanks! There won't be any more to this particular story; I've said what I wanted to say and that's it. There's plenty more going on over at my novel-in-progress, so go check that out. I'm glad you liked it, though!

That was nice. I covered my mouth to stop from gasping when Ginny slapped Harry. I do have to say I'm glad she did so. That idiot needed it.

Author's Response: That's why I did it! Every hero needs the occasional dope-slap to keep him in line.

Chapter: The Lady With the White Flowers

the part about caviar was really funny -- I managed to get some strange looks because of it!

Author's Response: There is no greater praise for a writer. If I could make you laugh, then my mission is complete. And I figured Ron wouldn't turn down something odd if he tasted it before he knew what it was. I ate menudo and liked it before I knew it was tripe, so it didn't faze me to find out.

write the story sooner, won't you?
this is not criticsm anyway, just anxiety to read

Author's Response: Erm... this story is done. And I just realized that I didn't put anything in the text to indicate that, just the little marker on the description. Sorry! Chapter 2 on "Blues for My Father" is in beta stages right now; depending on how quickly the mods work it should be up by next week.

Author's Response: Keep reading, by all means! I'm getting away from the fluffy romance in "Blues for my Father"; that one's a thriller. Hope I don't lose you!

Chapter: Once Upon a Time is Right Now

You know, I meant to write Knight. I do get the theme, I'll blame it on lack of sleep. No posting after midnight for me any more. I also can't see Harry having a fling, I'm a little surprised Ginny would think that. But the more I thought about it, I understand. She always knew she loved Harry, but without knowing he felt the same, doubt and fear crept in. I know I've felt that way. I think you've done a good job capturing the female emotions.

Author's Response: Thanks. I wasn't sure if I'd gotten it right. This is as much an Arthur/Harry story as it is an Arthur/Ginny story. I tried to set up a series of related metaphors. Harry, at the end of HBP, is very angry and frightened. The Red Knight in Arthur's story represents unfocused anger and undirected force, which is why Harry's armor and horse are red in the first dream sequence. When Arthur tells Harry the story, he gives Harry a context for his feelings and equates Harry with Perceval. By telling Harry to call him Arthur, Arthur is accepting him as a grown man and equating himself with King Arthur, thereby placing himself in a guiding/initiatory role. When Harry takes Ginny's glove and kisses her hand, he symbolically pledges himself to her service. A kiss on the back of the hand is a sign of fealty. When he goes out to find the Horcruxes and destroy Voldemort, he does it partly in her name. Yes, he's saving the entire Wizarding world, but you'd better believe Ginny's going to be foremost in his mind! The last dream sequence is symbolic of his change: he is no longer driven by rage, and he no longer sees himself as alone, so he gets the white armor and the army of friends to back him up. Okay, I'll stop with the mythopoetics now. :-)

Chapter: Once Upon a Time is Right Now

WONDERFUL chapter! My favorite line was Harry asking "How could I get bored with you?" after Ginny had pummeled him and forced him to admit his true feelings for her. I can picture Harry as a Lord courting his fair Ginny when she gives him her glove. I just love this story! Keep it coming.

Author's Response: Glad you liked it. Part of Harry's charm is that he is completely without pretense when it comes to his emotional relationships. If he likes you, you know it right off. He doesn't play games with people. Had he been just slightly less scrupulous, he could have had any girl he wanted, singly or in groups. But then he wouldn't be Harry, would he?

Good second chapter! I liked how Ron grabbed Harry and frog-marched him back to the reception line-PERFECT!! Loved the image that popped in my head. I can't wait to read Ginny and Harry's talk!!!

Author's Response: Ah, a loyal reader! Thanks for checking back. Chapter 3 is up now, so your curiosity should be satisfied. Hee hee hee...

Chapter: A Knight of Shadows

Well, you already know I love it but I had to make it official by leaving my review. Great story, as was "Wedding Day" and I look forward to the next chapters. PS- I think the angst works. Those are some hormonal, stressed-out kids!

Author's Response: Yeah, Julybug and me, we're all about the angst, the nausea, the sickness unto death... it's amazing that we can maintain such positive outlooks! You have to eat bitter to taste sweet, though.

Chapter: A Knight of Shadows

It seems like a nice story, but Harry and Ron seem pretty angsty to me!

Author's Response: Oh, yes, there is angst in the first chapter, but keep at it, the mood picks up in the next two chapters. All shall be revealed as fast as the mods can work.

Chapter: A Knight of Shadows

I liked the story Arthur told Harry about the Red Knight. I hope that Harry talks to Ginny the next chapter. Looking forward to reading more.

Author's Response: Oh, he will. Believe me, he will. If you're interested in the source material for the story, there are several translations of Chretien de Troyes' "Perceval, or The Knight of the Grail" available. Check your local library. It's a great read, lots of knightly butt-kickings and mysterious castles.
