Wow Rivah!! She falls asleep wanting the dreams, and then wakes up to find Harry there right? It made perfect sense to have her praying for him. "I am here, it's really me." This was so - ahh! I'm at a loss for words. This was sooo perfect, I'm glad my begging to a sequel helps. I just can't get enough of your wonderful plots! You are truly more wonderful than you give yourself credit for. Not to put down Moony or Nuw - but you are just as good as them!!
Sequel? I don't know what it would cover, but it would be wonderful for you to have a bit more. I guess I just can't get enough of your writing!
Author's Response: Thank you so much sweetie. I actually started one that is about Harry's proppsal today. Barring any marjor sidelining by my kids I should finish it by Monday. Always feel free to throw ideas my way, I like the practice of working with in boundaries.
That was amazing, Rivah! I like the end, where she doesn't look but knows that he is there. *sigh* That's so romantic. I hope that I can write romance as well as you and Nuw can someday... I won't hold my breath, but hey, it could happen. : )
And thank you for the lovely comment. I never really thought of myself as this great author... Thank you. But, you know, you don't give yourself nearly enough credit. Your writing is amazing and I can't wait until I check my e-mail and see that you have another lovely poem up. Thanks for another great one, hun. : )
Author's Response: I think I may have mentioned once before but my hugest fault is that fact that I am totally self deprecating. It occasionaly makes for great writing but for the most part its annoying. You, my dear are an amazing writer who has created an riveting story that has a surplus of loyal fans waiting with baited breath. I wish my writing at 16 was half of what yours is now. I am being completely honest. As for the romance, it does help that both Nuw and I have partners that at one time or place we had to woo. Part of the whole romance thing comes with experience. When you get it I have no doubt it will flow like a river. That being said, this is in no way a license to run out in a mad search for true love. Sorry mom brain took over for a second there. Rivah
Wow. Just... wow. That was so sweet, Rivah, and extremely well-done. I love the way you can write rhyming poetry without letting the rhyme scheme make it sound awkward. That's hard to do, and you're really good at it. Of course, you know that the main reason I like it is the end. ;-) I'm a sucker for happy endings.
I also have to say thank you even as I'm blushing from your praise. It really feels good to know that somebody who writes so well thinks that I do too.
Author's Response: If you ever have any doubts about how phenomenal a writer you are,(or have an amazingly coincidental bought of amnesia) you can count on Moony, Abbs or I to remind you. I actually got an email from someone who wanted to know if I really am as saccharine as I can come off in some of my reviews. I don't think it helped that most of my poetry is happy to. I replied to them in all honesty. I only review what I like. When reviewing professional quality work it is easy to sound all flowery and sugary, plus I tend to steer myself towards first romance, happyendings. I need my warm and fuzzy fix. That being said I am going to take leave to deflate my ego. Oh wait, that is what I have kids for!
Wow. So sweet, and great rhyming. I love it. Amazing. Just spectacular. You have a great way with words and wording.

Author's Response: Thank you so much. It is sometimes hard to convey images while also trying to represent an event. I hope i am getting better at it.
