I'm sad the wait for chapter 3 has been so long =( I hope you're doing well, new school year and all.

Author's Response: I'm sad, too =( The chapter is already done, and with my beta, but unfortunately, she's had many problems with her computer, so not only my chapter is stuck there, but also others' :/

I think that I'll try to beta it myself (only this chapter). After all, I'm a beta too ;) But this has not been the only reason of chapter three's delay. It's a long explanation, but you can read it in my profile, in the comments for chapter three.

And thank you :) I'm doing well. I just began my diving course and although the manual is quite thick, I'm getting really into it. Ah, yes, I'm not at school by the way! I finished high school before time, and I didn't want to begin highschool before time, so I took a little bit of a break ;)

I'm truly sorry for the delay :/ Believe me, I hate myself for that, but hopefully, I'll submit next chapter tomorrow. Oh, and I wrote a one-shot. It's called: "Strangers..." I hope you like it!

Thank you for still being here :)

I absolutly loved the ending! Very suspensful. Hermione seems a bit OOC though, and it's a tad bit cliché for her to be so emotional over Ron. Overall though, great chapter! I can't wait to read more. :)

Author's Response: I was hoping the ending would grab the readers' attention :D There'll be more about that in the next chapter... OOC? Hmpff... that's what I was afraid of. Yet, I can't say I totally agree with you. I've always been reticent of that scene, but somehow, I do imagine Hermione feeling that for Ron, although only, and I underline 'only', when she is alone. Why? Because she hasn't come to terms with those feelings yet. However, I'll take your opinion into account for future chapters! I rewrote the third chapter for the same reason, although that was some time ago :) Thank you for reviewing, and hopefully, you'll be seeing next chapter really soon!

Hey! Nice job so far, aside from a few minor grammar mistakes and a non-British spelling (it's "realised" not "realized.). I liked your descriptions and the overall mood of the chapter. Well, on to the next! (By the way, strange review Zacko.)

Author's Response: Hi, Jenn :D I'm quite glad to see you here ;) Oh, yes. I'm always lame when it comes to ''s'' and ''z'' for british spelling :/ I hope you enjoyed it! (and yes, it is a strange review, heh)

Author's Response: Hi, nadine :) Well, don't worry at all. I was the one taking so long to respond :o

Thanks for the comments on the POV of Hermione :) I've always been afraid that readers wouldn't like it too much :o. Thanks for sticking up with me, nadine :D

Well I'm not sure how you don't like your first chapter--I found it wonderfully, appropriately, and perfectly emotional and reflective and descriptive, just like an opening chapter should be. But I suppose if you had envisioned something else, it could be rather frustrating to end up with something.... not what you wanted. But that's writing--and reading, and life in general--*sigh* I'm experiencing such disappointments in the last two categories.

I must say, Hermione is so adorably silly--not OOC--with her letter writing. The way she's obsessing over the greeting and the phrasings, very chuckle worthy, and it is not OOC because Hermione does such things, very often, just the focus is usually schoolwork. And so, you should have more confidence in your writing skills and stop having crazy ideas about incompetence and not deserving devoted fans and such.

Lastly, for your question, I was going home for the weekend (from college, or university rather), but actually it averages a two hour drive, which is truly quite manageable, lucky me!

Author's Response: Ah, your review made me reflect: No, I don't dislike my first chapter. It is what I had in mind, and I wouldn't change it for anything. The problem is... I am too unsure about my writing. It is a flaw, I don't know, or maybe I think that way I won't feel so bad if I fail, but the problem is I am unconfident.

Thank you very much for those encouraging words! It's good to know you found the first chapter very appropiate. And as I said, that's what I had envisioned, but I was too unconfident about it... still am, but anyhow, I have to convince myself it is okay :)

It is so bad to hear that :( I really hope you aren't filling too low-spirited! And just hang on tight, all things (even the bad ones) are for one ultimate good (personal growth, learning, etc.).

Oh, I do was afraid she was OOC with those letters. However, in my mind, she is very insecure when it comes to things of the heart. Aw, I don't know if I can do that, but thank you very much for trying to help me :) Once again, let me say that I have incredible reviewers that I do not deserve :D

Ah, lol, I thought it was like a whole night drive ;) Well, I do hope you enjoyed your time with your family. All of my brother are now living away from home, so I know how missed they are :)

Thank you very much for cheering my day once again, Phoenix3!

i enjoyed it a lot, as I knew I would. I can't wait for things to get going once you've got this underway, and it's nice to only have two intro chapters. ;) Great work!

Author's Response: Ah, it's really good to hear that! Oh, well, yes next chapters are supposed to be way more important to the plot and... well, I just hope you continue to like as much as now and even more :)

Name: Phoenix3 (Signed) · Date: 09/01/06 20:05 · For: Letters and Dreams
Hey for all your apologies about introductory chapters, this one is actually really exciting. I mean the first one was too, but all the different perspectives, and you touched on--foreshadowed even--so many interesting tidbits. AAAH! gotta run catch my carpool.

Author's Response: Hi Phoenix3 :D so good to see you here!

I'm really glad that you found them exciting. To be honest, I'm not quite fond with the first chapter, but that was the idea I always had for the opening chapter of this story, so I stuck up with it :) I'm also glad that you liked the change in perspectives. I know that some people dont, heh. Oh, and you caught all those 'interesting tidbits'? Yes, you'll be listening more about some of those things in the future ;) Heh, where are you going? It must be a long way if you need to go in carpool! Have fun :) Thanks for taking time to review!

Great story! I really liked the letters from Hermione, and how much trouble she had writing Ron. That was pretty funny. Uncle Vernon's reaction to Harry having friends was great too. The Dursleys couldn't keep him from ever having friends! :) I look forward to the next chapter.

Author's Response: Hi Cheshlin :) Heheh, I think that's the part I enjoyed the most, too. I also had fun with that quote lisa_lovegood pointed out. I was afraid that Uncle Vernon's reaction was unnatural or something of the sorts. Good to know tha tyou liked it :D Ah, next chapter will be submitted quite soon, but the problem now is to find a beta and get the fourth chapter beta-ed as soon as possible :) Thank you very much for droping by, Cheshlin! I love to hear from you:)

Very good! Poor Hermione, I can only imagine how hard it was to write Ron. It was easy to write Harry because she is not in love with him like she is Ron. And I agree, why does he have to be so thick! It will be tense for awhile, once they are all at the Burrow, won't it? I am very interested in reading what happens next.

Author's Response: Hi Ginzig :) Heh, Hermione... I enjoyed writing another side of her: the one who is nervous about something else not school related. I had fun making her go through all that trouble when writing that letter. And you are completely right about the reason behind that ;) However, there is still a long path ahead for both of them... Well, you'll have to wait and read :D (yes, I have a small, evil side, heh). Thank you for reviewing!

Name: lisa_lovegood (Signed) · Date: 08/31/06 18:38 · For: Letters and Dreams
lmao dont worry about it, I laugh at my own jokes all the time...lol

*holds one hand to heart and the other to the computer screen* I, lisa_lovegood, somlemly swear that if you, AstroFire, ever write OOC (which I am sure you wont, but I will make this vow anyway), I will promptly but politley inform you in a review. *lowers hands*

That okay?

hmmmm *ponders* now why would you get so many amazing reviewers like moi...hmmm...

maybe because YOUR AN AMAZING WRITER!?!?!?!

But thats just my guess...

Author's Response: Maybe we are both weird :) I don't know, it sounds weird that you laugh of a joke you just wrote. Ah, it's so much fun though :D

Ah, that certainly puts my soul at ease. I know you will do it when the time comes :) Really thank you!

Ah, an amazing writer? *blushes, even if he looks weird* No, I like to think that I just have a lucky star. Believe me, my writing skills are not good enough to make it up for great reviewers like you :-D

Thank you very much for taking that vow, Lisa, and for yet another of your great reviews :p

Heyyyyyyy! Nice story, you know, but, no offence, really, it's just kind of like a cool type of story without anything to do with Starwars or fishing really. Next time, Maybe? lol.

Author's Response: Hi , Zacko!

Well, I have to say I smiled when I read your review :) It's just that... well, the story is called 'Starlight Dreams', not 'Starwars Fishing Rod'. Maybe I mislead you somwhere with something...? Although I have no idea where you got the idea about fishing! Nevertheless, thank you for leaving your review :) I'll try to go and find any misleading word or section.

yipee! It's here! *happy dance*

So. My review: *hem hem* I loved the R/hr-ness, and that quip of Ginnys (sorry for the quoting) -

“You are always starving,” Ginny replied, perking up just a little bit. “I hope Hermione knows how to make large amounts of food, otherwise I see tough years ahead of you, Ron.”

That's the Ginny we know and love! lol. But I hope she ceers up soon! She seemed kinda down... I wonder what that's about...

You are amazing at keeping charecters in charecter. Uncle Vernon for example. When I was reading that part... it really could have been from a HP book. *cheers*

Ooooh, creepy last line! What was it all about?!?

My guess is it was good (uh, bad) ol' red eyes, but hmmmmmm. Could be a plot twist *wink*

And we all like a good old plot twist...


Update soon!

(the one and only)

Author's Response: Yay, you are here :D *joins happy dance*

Ah, heheh, I love that quote, too. I actually had a very good laugh when I wrote it. Sad that I laughed of a joke I wrote? Perhaps :) But I couldn't help it, heh.

Well, Ginny has a lot of stuff going through her mind. Remember that it is the summer after all those events that happened at the Ministry... so she is dwelling on some... stuff ;)

Aw, thank you very much! You know, that's one of my greatest fears: writing a character, well, out of character. I'll really feel bad the day when I write a character OOC, but it is ought to happen. Promise me you will tell me when it happens, Lisa? I'll be really grateful if you do :)

Heh, I can't say anything about the last line :) ! I would spoil the surprise for you, wouldn't I? You'll get to learn more about all that stuff going on the backstage, but for now you'll have to content with that :D

Thank you very much for reviewing, Lisa! It's so encouraging to see you still here :) I don't know what I did to get such wonderful reviewers!

Name: Narwen3 (Signed) · Date: 08/27/06 22:20 · For: Letters and Dreams
Woohoo! First review! Way to go me, even if I'm cheating by reviewing before it's even out. I just wanted to thank you for the recommendation, it means a lot to me! I'll be back once this chapter is up!

Author's Response: Yay, first review! I didn't know you could do that (review before it was out) 0.o Don't worry about the recommendation :) there's something still in store, so I'll let you know :D I'll see you shortly then ;) Thanks for reviewing!

Name: lisa_lovegood (Signed) · Date: 08/23/06 8:03 · For: Old Wounds, New Beginnings
*sigh* I need the next chapter! Yes, I NEED it.

Submit, submit, submit!

But I cant really talk, I'm not updating as often as I should...

But your story is actually good! lol

Lisa xxx

Author's Response: Hi, Lisa!! Believe it or not, I had answered to your review before, but due to some strange reason, *cough*hacker*cough*, when I hit the submit button... 'Please enter your username and password' (or something like that). I lost my answer :/ The worst is that it wasn't the first time that day, so I was quite frustrated.

Anyhow, here is my response (yepee! [lol]). Well, the chapter was fortunately in queue before they closed it :) Narwen3 actually already reviewed it :D although it can't be read yet ^_^'

Lol, I really hope you are liking it so far. I'm a tad sad that the first two chapters are taking so long (given that they aren't that good [introductory chapters, you know]).

Thank you so much for letting me you are still here! That's very encouraging :)

come on! update! i wanna knoooo!!!

Author's Response: Oh, I'm very sorry! D: It is taking more than what I had expected. Next chapter was rejected for a few errors that slipped by my beta and myself 0.o Anyway, I'mreally confident with the chapter I just submitted, so hopefully, you'll have it very soon! Thanks for sticking up with me! :)

Name: Cheshlin (Signed) · Date: 08/08/06 12:58 · For: Old Wounds, New Beginnings
I'm so excited to finally see this posted! I have been waiting for it very patiently for a while. :) I like who you have
Harry frantically trying to find that photo, and it is Uncle Vernon that found it. it should be interesting to read what he actually does about it. I have loved your one-shots, and I really look forward to reading your chaptered story! :)

Author's Response: Hi, Cheslin! Ah, yes, after so much talking and announcing, it's finally here :) Thank you very much for still sticking up with me, even after all this time! :)

Well, all this trouble about the photo actually ends in the next chapter, but the photo will appear in the future.

And I have loved your reviews and your story very much! Speaking about your story, I'm truly sorry for having being so abscent this past time. Free time has become truly scarce given to many recent and unexpected events. However, I'll try to make it up to you :) Thank you very much for reviewing!

Name: lisa_lovegood (Signed) · Date: 08/06/06 15:33 · For: Old Wounds, New Beginnings

Hello! Sorry it took me sooooo long to read this, I was a away for a week - Dont i have the best timeing? lol.

Anyways, It's here!! WOOO! I was so exited when I saw this; I squeeled! LOL.

Great start to what I am sure will be a great story!! Poor Harry, he's going to be in trouble!

I loved the bit where harry was saying he will have time to mourn later - so heartbreakingly (is that even a word? Probably not...) in charecter...bless him...

And also: I was in a dedication! WOW! I knew those please would be worth it!!

So, so happy this is up!

Update soon!!
Lisa xxx

Author's Response: Hahah, hi Lisa!!

Don't worry at all. I understand what it is to be busy. At the moment I am quite busy. All our things just arrived to our new home (after a three month wait!). Yes, they came by sea, but still, three months!

Heheh, I'm glad that you were so excited. I just hope it didn't let you down :o

Well, this chapter and the next are mainly introductory, to give you an idea where are our favourite characters and their current visions about things. And I have to agree with you, I liked that bit, too ;) (I think it is a word :D)

Hahah, ^_^ well, I just reckoned that after all the pleases and threats you gave me, you deserved nothing less than the dedication of the first chapter :)

I'm, too, very happy this is up :D Next chapter has been in queue for 2-3 days, so it should be up pretty soon. I hope you like it! You'll get to see the rest of the trio ;)

Thank you very much for revewing, Lisa. It's always a pleasure to read your reviews :)

How on earth did Uncle Vernon find the picture? I see huge prospect in this story, so keep writing!

Author's Response: Hi, hpfreak101. Thanks for reviewing :) Well, I thought I'd clear that up. It was Harry's fault. You won't see it, but he lost it in the kitchen the day before. Truth be told, that doesn't really plays a role in the next chapter... but the picture will appear again later on :) Again, thank you for reviewing!
