Well, I have to say that I have enjoyed this story since the first time I read it back in summer of '07. And it just keeps getting better and better! :) I'm definitely having mixed feelings about Michael now. I know he's been a royal jerk, but it seems that he's trying to make everything up to Hermione. I'm still a big fan of Ron, though. I hope we see him in the picture very soon! :)
Author's Response: Wow, it's been such a long time since I first posted this! I'm glad you've been enjoying it. I've put a lot of effort and time into it and I completely love what I've gotten so far. And I am definitely glad you are getting mixed feelings about Michael. That's what I'm trying to create. Mixed feelings. I'm falling in love with him, to be honest.
so, just because i'm THAT cool i review fanfics in my spare time. anyways, i just wanted to thank you for portraying harry accurately! i was just reading some other fics and harry says some stuff to ron like "oooh what were you and hermione doing last night?" and like "you love her, don't you ron?" wtf! harry is not like this!! guys do not talk to each other like this!! anyhoozles i just wanted to thank you for portraying harry correctly - not like some mindless, insightful girly freak!
ahh. good to get that out of my system. update soon! as i said before, i'm dying to know what happens next! (aka i can't wait till ron rushes to her side :P:P wishful thinking)
Author's Response: You are VERY cool.I really laughed out loud while reading this. What you mentioned about Harry's characterization is one of the main things that made me want to write. I hate it when Harry becomes Ron's best girlfriend! It's so annoying!Anyway, thanks so much for reviewing. :) I actually tried to update this week, but experienced technical difficulties. I e-mailed a mod but I'm still waiting for a reply...
i lovedddd it(:
pleassssssssseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee update soon!
Author's Response: I will!
*shock* uh oh!
Poor hermione. I hope she leaves Michael because he wasn't there for her.
Hope update is soon! Can't wait :)
Author's Response: Oh, I have so much in store for you that I can't wait, either!!
This chapter is absolutely wickedly brilliantly amazing. The flashback of the night of Harry and Ginny's walk was very well done. This fic just keeps getting better and better... just post Chapter Twelve soon, okay?
Author's Response: Thank you so much!
OMGGG i love thissss storyy
please hurry up and write the next chapter
OMGGG its so good
Author's Response: I will!
so glad that you have found the time to return to this fic...truly enjoyable
Author's Response: Oh, I'm glad too! Thanks!
omg, love it!
thius is exactly wat i wanted 2 happen!!
Author's Response: Well, I only write things I'd like to read myself. ;) I'm glad you're enjoying the story so far.
Oh My God! This story is amazing! About how many chapters will there be? Can't wait for chapter 13!!!!
Author's Response: Well, I told my best friend there would be about ten chapters, and I'm on 13 right now. (That is so like me.) I'm estimating right now that we have at least five more chapters to go. ;)
Yikes! I hate/love cliffhangers. I hate HATE Michael he's a jerk. I wish Ron or Harry would give Michael a good old muggle beating. I swear I don't condone violence but he so deserves it.
Author's Response: Lol, this is soo funny. He does deserve it.
whoa!im at the edge of my seat right now.i hope the baby or hermione doesnt die!!!='(
Author's Response: Finally! Someone that doesn't want the baby to die!
great cliff hanger! IT's gona drive me crazy not knowing what happens! KEEP UPTHE GREAT WORK!
Author's Response: OOOHH! Thanks!
Aghhh! I can't wait until the next chapter! I feel like I'm watching an exciting episode of "Grey's Anatomy" only with my favorite HP characters. lol Loved the chapter! Keep on writing! :)
Author's Response: I'm flattered. I love "Grey's Anatomy." :P
Nice chapter! :)
Author's Response: Thank you! :P
Hi, just read this entire story - was quite impressed when just as i though I was coming to the end of what was already posted another 2 chapters turned up for me to read! However now I can't believe what a cliffhanger you have left it on!!
I kept reading your a/n asking for reviews after each chapter so I promised myself I would review when I had read it all.
I love this story so far. Your characters and plot are so real - i liked the way that when Ron asked Hermione to stop the wedding she wouldn't do it - she didn't just fall into his arms and agree to everything which is what usually happens in these types of fics.
I also love the fact that even though Ron is with someone new she is actually a nice person. I have read so many fics where Ron breaks up with Hermione and suddenly starts dating a complete b*tch! I was worried things were going to go the same way when she called him Ronnie or whatever it was she used but it seemed you quickly scrapped that idea and then when she came to visit Ginny, we saw that actually she was a nice person.
I also love the Harry/Ginny sort of aside - it really adds to the story to be able to see little snapshots of their life and watch them with the new babies (though what has Ginny suddenly got against her own mother!)
Another thing is, obviously I don't know where you live but it seems almost every fic I read now is full of Americanisms and being British it drives me insane so it is wonderful to be reading this fic where there are none at all. (or if there are I haven't notice them.)
Anyway, I think this is wonderfully well written - it has been the first fic in a while I have really wanted to read to the end of so I hope you keep going (though I am not going to turn this into an OMG please update type review)
I hope you have enjoyed my waffle and I can't wait to see which road you go down from here - I like that you aren't rushing R + Hr getting back together - it makes it more real - but I still hope it happens eventually.
I will review again I'm sure.
Author's Response: Wow. That was so good to read.
I'm going to start by saying that I'm not British (I so wish I were, though; I consider the UK my home away from home), and my first language is Spanish. So to read that I have achieved my goal--to avoid Americanisms--from a British girl, is the best compliment I have gotten. Ever. (Americanisms in HP Fan Fiction annoy me too.)
I'm incredibly happy that you have enjoyed reading and that you have answered my pleas for reviews (what can I say? I love them). I love writing, I really do, and with this story I really wanted to go against the cliches I've found in other stories (i.e. Ron's nasty girlfriend).
I hope you keep your promise--I want to hear from you again. You rock. :)
Wow! A wonderful chapter!! Well-written and it really amazing!! I can only hope Michael will be out of the picture soon!! Update soon, please!
Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much! I really hope you keep reviewing! ;)
What a horrible cliffhanger! I can't wait to see what happens next. I knew Michael had to be sleeping around on Hermione. Maybe after all this she will finally see the type of person he really is. Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Thank you!
I can't WAIT to read the next chapter!
Love Ron, Hate Michael! (even though he is a very well written character)
Author's Response: Awww... You can't hate Michael that much. I'm kinda growing fond of him.
We've never met before, so why are you being so cruel to me? Why such a cliffhanger? I'm joking (quite) but I was enjoying a quiet Sunday evening, and like a fool I read this!
Early in the story, I was thinking - she'll probably lose the baby and she'll be reunited with Ron, but at 7 months it's very painful to watch the possibility. Especially as she's also in such danger. Let's hope her winner of a husband manages to pop along to the hospital to check on her at some point. Honestly, Ron's right, this isn't like her.
I can understand her being wary of Ron on her wedding day, and reluctant to trust him. However that doesn't mean she had to marry this git. Pregnant or not, she's an independent woman of the 21st memory, and quite capable of staying single. If in doubt, say no! You don't need to have a man lined up to take care of you. Her instincts are completely sub-par.
Still, she's suffering for it now, big time. She's been burying her head in the sand, but when she finally accepts her situation, she'll probably feel some self disgust for the mess she's in -that's not including any horrors you've got in store involving her/the baby. Will she be able to have more children? Poor Ron. UPDATE NOW!
Author's Response: Wow... That was a lengthy review. My favorite kind. I have to tell you: I adore cliffhangers. I wasn't planning on this one, but I think it was a really nice way to end the chapter, don't you? (haha...) What you wrote really makes me realize that I must doing something right, because that is exactly what I want readers to think as they reach the climax of the story. We're getting close! Hope you keep reading and keep reviewing. I'll update as soon as I can. Thanks!
Oh, you're horrible to end the chapter like that! Please, please update soon, because I can't stand the suspense!
Author's Response: I'll update soon! SOON!
