Chapter: Chapter 1: A Hundred Sighs

This chapter is pretty good though there are some problems. You should make more paragraphs. It would be much easier to reach in my opinion :) Also, Hermione seemed a bit OOC in my opinion. I'm glad that this is H/G and Hr/R though. I don't understand why you have so little reviews considering that this fanfic seems to be very well written (so far)

Author's Response: Thank you, Pirate Fanatic, for your thoughts. I will keep them in mind. Just so you'll know, there will be a (controversial) love triangle between Harry/Ginny/OC. Thanks for your review! aurorahope

Chapter: Chapter 3: A Message from Beyond the Grave

This fic is amazing. It's full of surprises!

The idea of having Kreacher and Dobby help the trio is brilliant- i especially love i how they end up at the burrow :). - Kreacher seems also very in character - I love it when he talks like that about people in their face- and also Dobby, who is more innocent like. He's like a little kid.

Anyway, I also liked the conflict between Ron and Hermione, it's like sooo Ron. Even the fact that he didn't knock. The Ginny-and-Harry thing also seems quite realistic (very close to the book in fact).

You did wonderful work with this fic, keep it up!!

Author's Response: Thanks so much! I hope you keep reading. There's a lot of twists and turns, and the sequel is now out. Thanks for the review! aurorahope

You had Aurora boozing it up when she was preggers? Lol excellent writing for the most part haha...

Author's Response: Well, she didn't know she was pregnant at the time. I promise she layed off the booze once she knew. Check out the sequel "The Next Bend" now up. Thanks for the review. aurorahope

Chapter: Chapter 23: A Final Bend

Well I have finished this fic and overall I have to say well done. It was nicely crafted and well written. I did some issues with content nearer the end but they are of a personal preference type. I didn't find it believable that Harry would deal with acute grief over Ginny's "death" by immediately having sex with Aurora. Even more, that he wasn't wracked with guilt over it aftewards seems out of character with canon Harry who feels guilty about everything. I thought your plot of Aurora, Snape's daughter, as the reason for Dumbledore's trust a stroke of brilliance although making her also related to Dumbledore and having her step-aunt be McGonagall was a bit too much for me to swallow. It really wasn't necessary to the plot. I half expected Aurora to shout out "Auntie Molly" when the Weasley's arrived at the hospital wing immediately after. My only other gripe was that Snape seemed too nice at times, especially towards the Trio although you had him revert to form at the end.

That being said, I did enjoy this very much. Best of Luck in the future.

Author's Response: Thanks for your review. Just to clear one thing up, Dumbledore was not Aurora's actual uncle. I said as much. He just came to teacher her about magic. I suspect Dumbledore took it upon himself to look out for her, as he promised Snape. As for Harry feeling guilty about his night with Auora, I think after all the shock wears off, he probably will be wracked with guilt. But that's for another story. Harry is a bit impulsviel, though, wouldn't you say? Thanks so much for reading my story. aurorahope

kind of corny "i am your father"

Author's Response: Well, would you rather I have said, "Yes, I am the man who procreated you?" I guess I'm a corny kind of gal. aurorahope

Well, so much for the hope I expressed last chapter. Hmmmm..... It does appear that Severus misdirected the term "bastard," though.

Author's Response: Wolfs Scream, thanks for keeping me on my toes. I hope I surprised you at least once during my story. Thanks for all your reviews and support. aurorahope

Chapter: Chapter 22: Harry's Surprise

Well, I admit that I wasn't all that certain of Ginny's demise, and am relieved that the skepticism appears to have been justified. I do hope that Harry didn't leave her a little gift that would be making an appearance in about 35 more weeks or so -- that would complexify things greatly.

Great story, crazy twists, sequal by any chance?

Author's Response: Thank you so much. I'm glad you liked it. If there's enough interest, I would write a sequel. After all, Harry deserves to know about his daughter, don't you think? aurorahope

Chapter: Chapter 23: A Final Bend

WHAT?! How could you finish it like that?? The horcrux in Aurora isn't enough to bring him back to full strength, is it? Last time (when Harry was a baby), he only lost 1/8 of himself... this time only 1/8 is left...

How was Snape protecting Aurora from Voldemort by giving her away? Or wasn't he? Was he always on Voldemort's side, and giving Aurora away was his way or protecting the Dark Lord's last horcrux? Did Dumbledore know? Obviously not. How could Dumbledore have trusted Snape if he knew Snape didn't need Aurora protected from Voldemort?? AAAAAAARGH DAMN YE!!!

And Harry, a daughter, with someone OTHER THAN GINNY!?! *implodes* I never liked that Aurora chick, Harry belongs to GINNY and ONLY GINNY.... *seeths*

Well at least you know you wrote a bloody good fan fic to get someone so riled up. A few holes in it, yeah, but still good.

Author's Response: I will try to answer a couple of your questions: First, Snape gave Aurora to Dumbledor to protect her, not because he wanted to protect the Horcrux. Snape did not tell Dumbledore, however, about Aurora's Horcrux. Snape was working for Dumbledore or on "the good side." Although Voldemort planted a Horcurx in Aurora, Snape still feared for her safety. After all, Voldemort could probably sacrifice one of his Horcurxes, if necessary, and still be okay. Sorry you didn't like Aurora having Harry's baby, but I felt that it was necessary for the ending. Harry still ended up with his true love, Ginny. Thanks for your review and support! aurorahope

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHH SNAP!! What a twist...and at the end of course......ohhh the possibilities. Are you thinking about another fic regaurding the kids of the Potters, Weasley's, & Aurora?????? Ohhhhhh man that would be AWESOME!!!

Author's Response: Thanks. Glad you liked it. I may write a sequel, after the movie and book come out. We're all excited about that now! Thanks for your support. aurorahope

Nice twist at the end with the dark mark and the horcrux. You did a great job for your first fanfic. I hope you decide to try another one- a sequel perhaps since you set one up nicely? Thanks for sharing your story.

Author's Response: Thanks, acciowand. You have been so supportive, and I truly appreciate it. I might try a sequel if enough people are interested. I really enjoyed writing this. Of course, we all have the movie and book to look forward to, so that might keep us busy for a while. Take care. aurorahope

okay., loved the story up until now. how could you make Aurora have harry's baby?! personally i think the only woman who has the right to have harry's baby is ginny.

Author's Response: As the story says, there's always a bend in the road. I sort of like the irony of the fact that Harry's daughter may in fact be a Horcrux, but I'm a little wicked. At least Harry ended up with Ginny. Plus, he's knows nothing about his daughter, if that's any consulation. Thanks for your review. aurorahope
