Yes it was just Perfect! I loved how he revisited all the memories of him and Ginny, there’s no better way than that to feel what he felt back then. Yay!! They’re going to start dating again! It’ll be like going back in time except they are older and married now, this should be quite a ride. You are going to show us some of their dates right? I’m dying to read more fluff! Great chapter!
Author's Response: Thank you! I thought revisiting his memories of Ginny would help clarify his feelings for her and help him get over his fear of re-entering their relationship. My current plans include showing at least one "date," and probably more. We'll just have to see -- I'm sort of flying by the seat of my pants compared to how I usually write (which is with a very detailed outline).
Aw that's so sweet! Great chapter!!! Can't wait for the next!
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm really glad you liked it. :-)
Perfect. Harry took some huge steps with that Christmas gift. Maybe by being a husband to Ginny again it will help Brian see Harry as more of a father. I think that relationship will take more time. But it must be hard on Brian, though I am hoping that seeing his mother happy will help. Looking forward to more.
Author's Response: You make a good point about Harry acting like Ginny's husband helping Brian see him as more of a father-figure. I really hadn't thought of it that way, but I think you're absolutely right. Of course, that doesn't really affect the root of Brian's problem, which no one seems to have guessed yet.
Warm fuzzies before 8 in the morning, always a start to a good day. I love Harry's need to resolve his internal differences, His realization that all he really does feel is love for Ginny in varying forms is both beautiful and timely. You know you are a genius, we are luck to reap the benefits.
Author's Response: Hi, Rivah! I'm glad this one gave you warm fuzzies. I think it's my favorite chapter so far, simply because Harry's finally got his head on straight after all the buildup. Yay! I'm so glad you liked it, and it was good to hear from you. :-)
It FINALLY got validated!!!! Yay! I love how Harry and Ginny got back together and getting to watch their courtship again is just going to be awesome! Please update soon!
Author's Response: Thanks! The chapters are getting harder to write, since I don't have every little detail planned out the way I usually do. It's more of a basic idea of where I'm going with it. Anyway, I'll update as soon as I can. I'm glad you liked it!
Author's Response: Thanks!
I luv this series, but the question i would like to ask is what happened to the next chapter? how come it hasn't been validated? I have added you to my favorites pleasssssss! keep writing.
Author's Response: I'm really glad you're enjoying the story, mrs moonie. To answer your question, MuggleNet Fan Fiction is a moderated site, meaning there are Moderators who read through each chapter and have to approve it before it becomes visible to anyone but the author. They check for things like canon errors, spelling/grammar issues, trouble with characterizations, etc. The result is that it takes a while for new chapters to be validated, but the quality of stories is much better than on any other site I've come across. Basically, the wait before validation is the price we pay for having such a high quality archive of Fan Fiction.
great story keep writing.
Author's Response: Thanks! I plan on it. :-)
I LOVED THIS CHAPTER!!! I know I keep repeating this throughout the fic but, wow, it's hard not to enjoy every bit of what you write. I loved the fact that Harry tried, and succeeded, to find his wedding ring. It brought tears to my eyes reading the part about Harry getting the ring back. I also liked the mysteries that you've left us with; how will everyone, especially Ginny, react to Harry's gift and what's going on with Brian? Great work as always! I've noticed that the next chapter is waiting to be validated, I hope it comes soon!
Your MAJOR fan,
Author's Response: Hi, Lexi! I'm really glad you enjoyed the chapter so much. Next chapter will cover Christmas day, but we won't get to Brian's issues until at least the one after that. Thanks for reviewing!
Great Chapter! I'm glad Harry was able to get his wedding band back, and that he and Ginny are getting closer. I wonder what's wrong with Brian?
Please, update soon!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you like the way the H/G relationship is progressing. We'll find out what's bothering Brian fairly soon, but not in the next chapter. Thanks for reviewing! :-)
*sniff* update soon!
Author's Response: I'm glad you're anxious. Next chapter should be submitted soon.
Nice, got the ring back. I am anxious to find out what's going on with Brian...
Author's Response: Thanks! We'll get to Brian soon.
Phew! All caught up here too. I had quite a few chapters to catch up on. And just finished them. Don't be deceived by the tone. Although I'm very relieved to be caught up on another fic, I want more and more of this. This is just simply amazing.
You've got another wonderful fic here, Nuw, one of so many.
I just love how you are going about Harry trying to behave of his real age. The Pensieve was a great idea. And I'm so glad he got his wedding ring back.
And after the attack on Lily and Brian, I never thought Malfoy would talk some sense into Harry. I'm really liking Malfoy in this story. So glad that he was successful.
I just can't get enough of this story. I really hope you can update soon, even though I know that this chapter went up not too long ago.
Anyway, I apologize that I wasn't able to give you frequent reviews for every chapter, but I've been really busy with school and stuff, so I just didn't have the time to come on MNFF. I'll try to keep up with the fic now, though.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm really glad you're enjoying the story so much. The next chapter should be ready for submission soon. :-)
Awww. I love that he's got the ring back! So sweet! I wonder what's up with Brian this time though... and I hope it gets fixed soon! This story is really brilliant! I love all the characters and the plot is really great! Update soon!
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you like the ring idea. Brian's back to the same issue he had early on in the story, which we've still never really discovered. The Constant Vigilance Game helped for a while, but he mostly slipped back into his old attitude (except for insisting that Harry is dead) after the attack by the Slytherins. You'll find out what's up soon enough, but not next chapter.
Awww, I hope you let him remember how much in love he was. Update soon please.
Author's Response: Thanks! Next chapter will include a nice walk down memory lane for Harry.
Aww! That is so sweet! The only part that might be a little off is that he used magic on Muggles, is that illegal? Anyway, I love the wedding ring idea!
Author's Response: I'm glad you like the idea. You're most likely right about using magic on Muggles being illegal, but it wouldn't be the first time Harry ignored the law when it seemed like the right thing to do. In his mind, he justified it by reasoning that he wasn't harming anyone, and the Muggles never even knew he was using Legilimency on them. That still doesn't make it legal, but it's enough for Harry to be willing to risk a fine from the Ministry.
Another great chapter :)
Author's Response: Thanks!
awww.... cute chapter... brian puzzles me, he shouldn't be angry at his dad for something he couldn't help. anyways, good chapter and i'm looking forward to the next one.
Author's Response: Thanks! Brian's behavior isn't exactly rational right now, and there are some pressures in his life that Harry hasn't figured out yet. We'll get to that soon enough.
“Gifts and memories” eh? Nice title, vague but hopeful (I was hoping it would give a bit more away but…) Yes, that’s exactly what I had been thinking, seeing Lily a bit more was refreshing. Now if only the next chapter had a bit more than just hugs between Harry and Ginny…(hint, hint) I’ll see ya for the next one!
Author's Response: I'm glad you approve of the title. The next chapter is now written, and I just need to proof it and put it into html. Hopefully it will be up soon. :-)
Wow id never think of the ring as a christmas present but it was a great idea.Glad Harry managed to find him.
Update soon plz.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you think the idea is creative. :-)
