Oooooh, I can't wait! This is such a good story! So what did break up Hermione and Ron? It almost seems from the memory that Hermione was pregnant. What happened? I can't wait to find out. Thank you very much for the longer story, I think it may have killed me if you'd ended it at 'the table was empty'. Although I did figure out reference before Hermione, I picked it up at Blanche. It's hardly a common character name, otherwise I probably would have missed it. Awesome job and please update soon!
Author's Response: You're right, it isn't a common name -- I'm glad you picked it up! Thanks very much for the review. The next chapter will finally reveal what broke them up (and you can see if your guess is right) and hopefully I'll get it posted soon.
Hey it's me... yeah well I have re read the chapter and do have this feeling that Hermione was preganant. It's just a feeling...Ive been thinking how they said the DEA wan't behind this I got a feeling it might be Malfoy. Might...it's just and idea. so yeah
also sorry for the typos,,,my finger got butned and it is very blistered
Author's Response: Don't worry about the typos, and I'm sorry about your finger! Multiple people seem to think Hermione was pregnant now, but what happened to the baby? ;) Thanks for the review.
Wow. One of the reasons I love this story are the clues you drop at every turn -- you never really tell explain anything beforehand, you hint at it, and do the explaining later, and I really love that!
I've stopped thinking Hermione's lost her mind completely -- she's supposed to always have a good reason for everything that she does, right? (I'm trying to figure out that reason right now, actually, although I'm supposed to be doing a presentatiom of the five-kingdom system. I really should stop reading fics when I'm supposed to be doing schoolwork...)
Anyway, I really liked this chapter -- it was, as always brilliant.
Happy new year!
Author's Response: I have a lot of fun littering clue everywhere as to what is to come before having a huge explanation -- I'm glad you like that method too! :) Hermione does tend to have a reason for everything, doesn't she? Thanks for the review!
Please update soon! Your story is very intriguing!!
I hope Hermoine and Ron work things out!!
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you think so. I've already started the next chapter, so hopefully I'll have it ready to go soon!
please update asap!!
Author's Response: I've already started the next chapter!
Interesting...did Hermione get pregnant and break up with ron because it wasn't part of her plans and she got upset and blame him for it.If so, I'm thinking that she got an abortion, because I really haven't seen any clues that point to the fact that she kept the baby...Then again, my therory might be completly wrong and right now your sitting reading this and thinking"Is she phycho".Anyway, great chapter, I loved the way that you made Harry all sad and everything,and how you said that bit about yelling at Mrs.Weasley and calling Ginny a wench.Update soon!!!
Author's Response: You're the fourth or fifth person to suggest that maybe she's pregnant -- I guess you'll just have to wait and see what might response to that is! I'm glad you enjoyed the memory; it was my favorite part of this chapter. Thanks for the review!
Hi, I am a reader from Czech republic. It was quite difficult to translate you story. But i manage it and thank you for it. This story is absolutely amazing. I am looking forward to next chapter!
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm flattered that you went to the trouble of translating the story, and even more so that you liked it!
*squee* a new chapter!!! You cant imagine how happy i am to read this chapter! I turned the telly off and everything to read this so i had its total attention. This chapter was amazing, thers so much suspence in it! Im so angry at hermione right now, about what happened in that memory and what she did to Ron AGAIN. I just want to hug poor ron. now its hermione repeating that harry and ginny mantra....
“I said no because he didn’t really want to marry me. He asked me because he thought it was the right thing to do. And I know I’ve been awful lately, but I never expected something like this to happen to me. I’d always thought I was better than this! And he did this to me, Harry, he did this to me!”
I couldnt help but automatically think that hermione was pregnant when i read this, but she couldnt, she would have had the baby by now... Im so confused, im still confused.......
I cant remember whether ive seen 'A Streetcar Named Desire' i seem to remmeber something about it..i cant wait to see how that all fits in...That little girl was so creepy....So theyre going to New Orleans next? I cant wait. you throw more and more twists into this, its like when i read Angels and demons, when you start to work out where you are, theres another twist and youre thrown off the edge again.....
YES! hermione wont have to marry benny, if that is the right key....at least one good thing has happened....unless the key is for something else.....oh ive never read a story so mysterious.....
Please update soon, i love this story so much! This is such a well written story, i love your style and the twists (as much as they want to make me scream at the computer) If you ever write a novel and get it published, please let us all know here and i'll definately buy it no matter what its about!!
Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoy the twists so much -- I love writing them! I feel terrible for Ron too. As for Hermione being pregnant: it's an interesting theory and you're not the first to suggest it . . . hopefully I'll have a fast update and you'll find out if you're right soon. . . . I do plan on writing a real book (or books!) someday; thanks for the vote of confidence! :)
New Orleans!! Wow Hermiones changed! You have a few little spelling errors in the 3rd chapter i believe. But hey that makes you seem more normal to all those (like me) who think you are the best thing to happen to this fan fiction world!! Im surprised you rnot on the tens!! Well Im now gonna anxiously wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: I do tend to have typos scattered through out my writing; I try and fix them when I notice them -- I'll read through the third chapter again with a careful eye! Thanks for the review!
I can't wait to see what happened between Ron and Hermione. I'm wondering if Hermione was pregnant, and Ron wanted to marry her to "do the right thing", then she got scared and left.
I still think that Harry and Ginny are behind this whole thing somehow.
Some of the stuff the girl said when they first met her reminded me of Jennie in the beginning of Forest Gump.
Great Chapter! Please, update soon!
Author's Response: You have been saying that Harry and Ginny are behind it since the very first chapter . . . I guess you'll see if you're right before too long! I hadn't been thinking of Jennie when I wrote her, but now that you point it out, I see the connection. Thanks for the review.
I mean....It's awesome story...
Author's Response: I know, I'm terrible with cliffhangers. Hopefully I can make up for it with a fast update! Thanks for the review.
I love that your stories are written with a realistic portrayal of emotion and conflict without adding drama for drama's sake. I felt like you had written one of my own memories of the conflict of a relationship in flux, trying to do the right thing while realizing you aren't really right after all. plus your mysteries are fantastic, clever, and unpredictable, which I truly appreciate! new orleans...can't wait! thanks for the update, looking forward to the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thanks very much! It is the worst feeling in the world, when you try to do what you should do only to realize you're very, very wrong; I'm glad you thought I was able to put that into Hermione's memory.
Wow. Awesome. =)
Author's Response: Thanks :)
So, Hermione got pregnant and Ron proposed and Hermione got angry because she thought he was just proposing because she was pregnant and not because he really wanted to get married and she was also angry that she had gotten pregnant in the first place because it just wasn't part of her plans at the moment and she had thought herself better than one of those girls that falls prey to unplanned pregnancy at a young age and out of wedlock and she blamed Ron for the pregnancy because it happened as a result of him taking her out and both of them getting drunk and in her distress mixed with furiosity and uncertainty she lashed out at Ron and everyone around her and ran away from their relationship. There. That's my theory as it stands now, and to be honest that's kind of what I've been expecting she The Pansy when Ron got touchy about Hermione throwing the word "conception" around as though it had never meant anything of any importance. Now here's my question. What happened to the baby and is there more to why they broke up? Because, because it's you, there is probably a lot more to what went wrong in their relationship and many twists that lie ahead. I could be completely off the mark and you could be laughing your head off at this review right now but I wanted to get the theory out before anyone else does so that I can claim credit for it if it does turn out to be true=). Anyway, I loved the beginning of this chapter and my heart ached for Ron when Hermione made a point of saying they still aren't together. I'm still waiting confidently for a happy ending though- and by happy I mean Ron and Hermione together and Harry and Ginny safe. Oh! I almost forgot to mention my theory on that issue. I feel as if the story is heading towards something like what happened in UFCHD- the real mastermind being someone who was personally wounded and whose life was ruined by the Harry and his happiness and success. Someone Harry never realized he had hurt so badly and someone, apparently, who feels betrayed by Ginny too. I'm still loving the theory that someone else posted though about Harry and Ginny planning the whole thing to get Ron and Hermione back together. That would be pretty cool. Anyway, I hope this makes up for my whiny review from a few days ago as this chapter is spectacular. If I think of more to say or If I'm bored and decide I should go back and read with a fine tooth comb in order to find typos or specific quotes to praise you will hear from me again. I might actually have done that in this review but I have to be at a New Year's party in less than an hour so I really should start getting ready. Thanks for helping 2007 go out with a bang. Happy 2008! And you get posting right when that New Year begins (or when the mods open the queue again=)) for all of your stories lest I have nothing left to do with my free time=)
Author's Response: Thank you for such a wonderful review! I always get excited now when I see your penname above in a review -- I really love hearing (or reading, whatever) you're theories and so on. That's an interesting theory you have on what happened -- as for my reaction to reading it, I can't tell you, as that might give its accuracy or inaccuracy away ;) Thanks again for the great review.
This is one of the best stories i have ever read. More!!!
Author's Response: Thank you very much; I'll try and update quickly!
that was good! PLEASE update soon!!!!
Author's Response: I'll try!
oh, everything got so good between the two of them, and then so bad in a hurry. I'm really curious as to what happened when the two of them broke up, but I'm not very close to figuring it out.
almost to the climax! yay!
great chapter - keep it up =)
Author's Response: I'm excited to finally have everything explained . . . hopefully that means I'll have a fast update! Thanks for the review; I'm glad you liked it.
You know what irritates me? That the next chapter still hasn't been validated. It irritates me so much that all I have energy left to leave after exhausting all of my frustration is this short, totally unrelated to the content of the chapter review. Which is unfortunate as this was such an informative and plot developing chapter. There. I suppose that was somewhat content related. I'll make it up to you when the next chapter is finally posted.
Author's Response: It had been a while since I put it up there -- but I guess even the moderators enjoy Christmas! Thanks for the somewhat content related review ;)
Please continue this! One of the best fics on this site!
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you think so! The next chapter should be accepted and posted soon.
NOOOO, dont leave me there..please please please update ASAP
Author's Response: I'm working on it!
