I hope I didn't offend too many people when I wrote about Ginny's death. I just thought that this could be the only way JK could end the story without killing Harry phyically, but causing a much greater hurt and scar emotionally. I know one of you has dropped this story as being a favorite of theirs. I hope I don't lose the rest of you. I do plan on getting the sequel loaded. I first want to wait until after book seven is out.

i think i might cry now. honestly. that was dead depressing. i mean, just completely depressing. but it was good, so... i dunno... i've confused myself because i liked it but found it terribly depressing...

Author's Response: That's ok. I didn't enjoy writing. But, look at this way, Jk may very possibly kill our beloved hero off. So, I ask you, which do you prefer--a sad ending with some hope that it get's better, or reading about Harry's death? I would prefer to read something sad happening to Harry, knowing that he will survive it. After all, what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. And, where there is life there is hope...for a sequel ;-D

Sorry,I don't agree with the death of Ginny.But your story is good.

Author's Response: That's ok if you don't agree. If it helps any to know, I didn't enjoy writing it. I just thought, if JK wasn't going to kill Harry, how would she make him suffer? Then the part where it says in HBP,"There are much more terrible things than physical injury," got me thinking. Maybe, Harry will suffer an emotional hurt. Don't worry though, I have a plot bunny to solve Harry's heartache. When a door closes, a window opens. For Harry, this will reign more true than his greatest dreams.

Im impressed.... you ended the story with the word; SCAR, the same word JKR said she would end the series with.. Loved the ending, its kind of sais, even though things are bad now, they will go back to a more "normal" "happy" times. I hope to read more of your work. Looking forward to some sort of sequal... if there's any in mind, or already out there.

Author's Response: I do have a sequel that's partially written. In the meantime, I've been working on an original piece. Hopefully, I'll get my act together and the sequel out. Until then, thank you so much for sticking with this story. It means everything to me that you stayed the course. I'm not really a writer, I just have an imagination that tortures me until I give in and try to put it to paper.

congratulations on getting it all up! I can't wait to see more from you! This was a good start and you can only approve. Don't stop writing, not if it's something you really love. Thanks for letting me beta this. I enjoyed working with you!

Author's Response: I just hope others feel the same way you do, otherwise, I just feel like I'm waisting the Mods' time. I know this sounds corny, but I really feel honored that I got a story up here on this site. I feel like this is the closest to getting accepted by JK Rowling's site itself. I checked some of the members who named this story as one of their favorites and I'm up there with all the "heavy hitters": Melindaleo, Sukr4romance, Mudblood428, Secret Lily, Sparx. I feel like I was accepted into a US International Open for HP Fanfic. Even if I didn't place at the top, I still got to swim with the big fish. How many others can say that?!

A sequal is always good... But wish you would have saved Albright's gift for Ginny....But you know what I said before, I love your story....Keep on writing....I dont think you should quit yoru job, well dont lose either job.

Author's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I kind of have the sequal written out. It has more angst and it's more fun. This story, I admit was very sad, but I was trying to keep within tradition of what JK was saying. Yet, at the same time, I can't bare the thought of Harry dying. JK has the power to debunk the myth that good guys finish last. With all the things happening in the world, it would be nice if Harry ultimately survived and had his own "Most Ancient and Noble House of Potter" tapestry. Wouldn't that be wonderful?

I just read your fanfic....I admit it...I was in tears as I read....excellent job....great Final Battle scene...I hope the site validates your next chapter soon.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for your review. It's reviews like this that make me think I should keep writing. I've been having my doubts, after reading some of the other stories on this site. They're so wonderfully written. I just uploaded the last chapter last night. Hopefully, I got everything right so that it will be validated soon and ready for all of you to read. I was tempted to include a little poll at the end, asking everyone if I should write the sequel to this story, because I already have a mentor in mind to help Harry, or should I "Not give up my day job", and just put my pen down for good.

I don't think I saw that coming... I kinda guessed that ALbright was somehow related to Harry... But Ginny Dying, I didn't see that comming.... Well....I hope to read the ending soon, you did say there was one more chapter right? well I hope you update it soon...

Author's Response: Yes, there is one more chapter left and I will be uploading it shortly. Thank you so much for taking the time to read my story. I wish I could find the right words to say in my heart how much your support and reviews and everyone else who has taken the time to review, mean to me.

In Ginny's dream, I think it would have been better if you said Ron, Charlie, Percy, ... any name instead of Ginny's brother. Other than that good chapter.

Author's Response: There's a reason why I left it a mystery. The reason is kind of errie. You'll find out about it in chapter ten. You will find out for really which brother it was. It wasn't just a dream...

I like your prodigal son analogy and the metaphor about the infected finger. I like how you hint that forgiveness could be a theme. At least I hope so--I didn't read on yet.

The only thing that was awkward was the three going to Professor Albright. I mean they never went to Dumbledore about this sort of thing, why go to Albright.

Author's Response: Professor Albright has a different kind of relationship with the trio. She isn't the head mistress, and she has been informally assigned to Harry as his personal mentor. In this particular case, it's ok that the other two develop some special relationship with her, besides Harry. Also, I wanted the readers to get that feeling that she was really everybody's favorite professor.

I liked Rose's speech how Harry needs Ginny by his side, not in front or behind but with him. Harry should have then listened to common sense and work things out with Ginny.

I didn't like the idea of Albright meddling with the lives of the students. I know this sounds contradictory to what I just said in the first paragraph but...
1st I think Ron and Hermione already got their act together. All the relevant conversation that needed to take place for them to become a couple happened after Ron was poisoned. (IMHO). I suspect for the purposes of your story is that you wish to show that the bonds of love between the main characters will be crucial to defeating Voldemort.
2nd The idea of a teacher giving hints on love doesn't seem right. It's one thing to say that in order to defeat Voldemort that you need to lose your personal baggage but it's another to micromanage romance.

I wasn't too crazy when JKR had Harry break it off with Ginny in book 6. It seemed overly sappy. But I don't think the solution is a secret romance mainly because everyone at Hogwarts knew that they were dating and all the Death Eaters know that Harry has a saving people thing. What I liked in your conversation between Harry and Ginny are the ideas that Harry is afraid of love because he is afraid of being hurt if his loved one dies. (He forgets he will be equally hurt if Ginny dies while they are broken up).

Author's Response: The thing about the dear old professor is that she has an agenda. It's not that she wants to meddle, it's that she feels she has to in order to help the cause. She micromanages Harry because she has been assigned by McGonagall to do so. All these points you are bringing up leave me regretting that I didn't write some of the subplots that I initially wanted to include. I really wanted the readers to know more about Professor Albright in her early years. I wanted to write about her involvement with the Order. I thought it would bore people.

Nice start. Good introduction of Professor Albright.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for leaving a review. I'm glad you like Professor Albright. She's a very special character to me.

How long is this story gong to end up being, because Voldemort is dead already and its only chapter 9...Well I hope killing Voldemort wont shorten the story, and what ever else evil you put in is more important than Tom himself... I loved the battle scene, I loved the other chapters too.... I love Proff. Albright, she's great, although I still don't know what to think of her, there's something about her, I just don't know, I hope that was done on purpose to confuse us kind readers... Hope to read more soon, and I will right a good lengthy review when I have a little free time from school and work...

Author's Response: Only two more chapters left--ten and eleven. Thank you for taking the time to write such a thoughtful review. It means the world to me when the readers do this.

I find this a very interesting story. I hope you update soon.

Author's Response: I will do everything in my power to get the chapters up soon. Thank you so much for leaving a review.

Woot! Another great chapter! If you don't know, I'm one of your Betas for Chapter Four. Sorry it's taking so long! I haven't had a chance to read yet, and now here I am! I will do Chapter Four tomorrow, and you should have it back soon!

Also, I wanted to comment on your OC, Albright. She is great. You did wonderful. Good job.

Author's Response: Yes, I know you're my beta and I appreciate everything you've been able to do for me thus far

Another great chapter. Yay for Harry/Ginny! I assume this means Ron/Hermione in the next chapter? I guess I'll go find out! Onto the next one (and by the way, I really SHOULD be doing homework, but this is too captivating to not read).

Author's Response: It's grea that you are enjoying the story

Name: harry_kissed_ginny (Signed) · Date: 04/26/07 20:02 · For: Chapter 1Return to Origins
Hi! I can't really leave a long review, because I want to go read the next chapter! I just wanted to say that this is really very good. I'm very captivated. One thing I wanted to say was that 'Alright' is incorrect. It is properly spelled 'All Right'. I know, it's a very common mistake, so it makes me somewhat obsessive about it. On the next chapter I go!

Author's Response: Thank you for your review. Oh and don't worry, I appreciate it when people take the time to help me with corrections
