Wow you're getting pretty quick about this!! I'm dying to read this chapter. I hope it gets approved faster this time.
Author's Response: Me too! I hate sitting two chapters ahead.
he will rise up from the ashes
i bet ten bucks on it
Author's Response: I don't condone gambling, plus it would be fair since I already know what happens. =)
(to quote Slughorn) Oho! That is a marvellous piece of work there, masterful. You managed to capture the moment perfectly, without being predictable - indeed, nobody could have predicted this scene. Well done!
Author's Response: Thanks! I was really hoping it wouldn't be cheesy. I didn't think it was personally, but you never know; I might be the kind of person that likes that kind of thing. I hope you enjoy the last two chapters as well!
NOOOOOOOOO! I have been reading steady and yet never waited on a chapter, and here is where I caught up to you!!! This cliffie is almost painful!!!Amazing there is no way I am going to sleep soon. I am stunned!! LOVED it, and expected nothing less after Mind's Eye. Phenominal Story!!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! This is kind of a tough spot to have to wait at, but I guess a whole lot of people have had to wait for worse. I hope the plot in this one was as good as Mind's Eye. Anyway, keep reading, and let me know what you think of the ending two chapters.
what? you can't spend all this time creating this great character only to kll him. I;m not falling for it. I say he's lke a baby pheonix in the ashes.
Author's Response: I'm not saying anything. =)
You're kidding. You're just leaving us like that? C'mon!
Author's Response: No, I'm not just leaving you like that. That would be mean. I AM making you stew in suspense for the next while until the next chapter is up. That's just suspense. =)
Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow, wow is all I can say. And please, don't let Sirius die!!! I guess we finally know the meaning to the title of the story, but please, don't let Sirus be dead!!!! You are one heck of a writer! I wish I was half as good as you! Please write more!
Author's Response: I'm not saying anything about Sirius; I'm really glad you enjoy my writing. I think when I started the Mind's Eye I wasn't much of an author at all; I think my writing has gotten ten times better at least, so I'm convinced that if someone wants to write well, the best thing to do is just start writing. (lots of English classes help.=)
You can't end it like this! Please say there will be a sequel! PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSE!
Author's Response: This isn't the end, I promise. There are two more chapters, one of which is waiting to be validated as we speak. I don't know if there will be a sequel to this story per se, but I'm sure my fanfic days are far from over. =)
Wow!!!!!! Great job - can't wait to see the next chapter. Although very sad Sirius had to die
Author's Response: Yeah, being sad for Sirius seems to be the general consensus here. It makes me happy that I created a character that people liked. Hopefully you won't have to wait long!
What! Sirius is dead? Please no!
This was a jam packed chapter and quite good, indeed.
Update soon, please.
Author's Response: I hoped it would be pretty satisfying; it was both long and exciting, at least to me. Anyway, I have already done my part of the updating process, so once again it won't be my fault if it takes a while.
YOU KILLED HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! how dare you grrrrr..... on the up side i still love the story! but i swore i would hurt u (pretends to slap extremely hard across the face)
Author's Response: I'm not sure I deserved that... Well, continue to enjoy the story, it's not over yet!
Ahhhhh!!! thats just . .. . ahhhhhhhh!!! I don't know how to put it into words. Yay for Frank though, but grrrrr did you have to end it there????? Ohhh (moans)
Author's Response: I ask you, where else could I have ended it? That was the PERFECT chapter ending, and I dare anyone to honestly disagree. Oh, you can all pretend to disagree, but you and I know that you would have done the same thing. =) Next chapter will be up as soon as they validate it.
Wait a second.... Sirius can't be dead cause don't phoenaxes rise from ashes???
-"In the center of the five foot ring of charred earth lay only a pile of ashes."
Thats forshoudowing right??? A person can hope.....
Author's Response: Hope is good, but I won't say whether it is justified or not. =)
NOOOO!!! Sirius can't die! He is too amazing to die! Harry has had enough deaths!!!! We need Sirius to be with his family and to celebrate the good times!! Noooo.... please don't kill him... but please do update. =D
Author's Response: I have submitted the next chapter already, hopefully it will be up soon. It will answer your questions and concerns in a more exciting way than me giving them away here. =)
Agh! Why must you kill Sirius?!? That shall drive me nuts until you get the next chapter through... I liked the pile of ashes at the end- hopefully he'll rise from them.
All in all, a wonderful story. Thanks for writing, I enjoy reading it!
Author's Response: I'm not saying anything about what happens. I'm really glad you're enjoying the story; I started writing for the enjoyment of my readers... and, okay, my ego enjoys the acolades, I'll admit it. =)
Oh no!! Sirius! But wait...don't phoenixes rise from the ashes? hmm....great chapter, that was about as exciting as anything J.K. Rowling herself writes! definitely worth the wait and i can't wait for the next one!
Author's Response: Thank you very much, and I hope the next one is also satisfying, though it won't be quite as exciting.
-"I can do this, he thought in wonder, I can live up to my name!" Up to whcih name, I wonder...Both of 'em are pretty good.
-Nice... hacksaws. Creative, except it reminded me of the Robert Frost poem "Out, out,-" I just read in American Lit... The kid gets his hand cut and then dies from loss of blood. Yum.
-ARGH! Then I read about Chris getting cut.. oh boy. Great timing, Em. *reads on* Phew. No worries. I love the idea of biting ankles. Very nice. :-)
-*on tenderhooks while reading the Frank scene* It's sad to see Stan go, but so much nicer to see Frank rise above. Sigh. Panther's a good idea, too. :-)
-Gosh... I'm glad HArry's feelign better, but i hope that he's not the one to kill Malfoy in the end... That's Sirius' job.... *continues to read*
-NOOO!!! SIRIUS! WAKE UP!
-CHRIS! *HUGS FIERCILY* I LOVE 'IM!!!
*Shrieks* NOOOOOOO!!!! Oh man..... *sniffles* Sirius.....
Good chapter, I guess, and I CAN'T WAIT 'till the next one.
Author's Response: I think Sirius was thinking more the Potter family name, but he would have heard all kinds of stories about Sirius Black as well, so it could be either, I guess. I haven't read that particular Robert Frost poem... and I don't know if I want to. I don't think it's sad to see Stan go, but that's just me; I knew he had to die from the moment I started writing this story. I hope you don't have to wait long for the next one; it's already submitted.
OMG!! Is he really dead?? Wow that was a great chapter!! So great! And I can't speak for everyone but I REALLY appreciate how quick you posted the last few chapters!!! Sirius better be in that pile of ashes!!!
Author's Response: I won't say anything about what is happening to Sirius, and I'm going to have to say that I'm not saying anything quite a few times I think, looking at all of the other reviews. I'm really glad you liked the chapter, is was a fun one to write. I have been posting the last few chapters as soon as I can, but they really have been slow validating them. I'm not bitter about that or anything, since I think it keeps the quality high and everything. It's just frustrating when it takes two weeks when I've got it posted within hours of the last chapter being validated. Oh well, enough griping from me. =)
great writing! loved it!
Author's Response: thank you very much!
Please, whoever is reviewing the next chapter(s), hurry it up. Everybody is caught up and waiting for this one to end, especially since none of the good guys have died in this series (post HBP of course).
Author's Response: ditto
