I don't feel like the "didn'ts" and "wasn'ts" hurt it at all. Personally, I think it's more realistic. No one says "I did not do that" anymore. They say "I didn't do that."
I get the feeling you're not really Harry's biggest fan, haha!
:0 it took me so long to read this due to interruptions, I can't believe I have to wait now. Write more fast!
i m0ent to say so last chapter.I LOVE YOUR WRITING STYLE!!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: Thanks :)
i must ask,there has now been two mentions of thins from hp and the c.s. game for game boy color.the peper up and the swirling wind from the wand,did u have the game?i did.it was a fabulous game!but terribly hard!
Author's Response: Err... I don't have a gameboy color, or the CS video game. But thanks for reviewing!
no! snape my love dying in the first chapter? *weeps* very well written though, and exciting! i was on edge the entire time.
Author's Response: I admit I have no fondness for Snape, but I promise his death was mainly a plot device. Thanks for reviewing!
You leaving the mighty mugglenet?:( :( :( oh well... But please please continue this story! On anysite I don't care but I NEED to know what happens. Lol :)
Author's Response: Thank you for all the lovely reviews! It's always nice to come home from a long night at work to all these presents in my inbox ;) I promise the story will never be abandoned, even if it kills me, or sends me to a padded room - which it may well do. The whole shebang will be continued over at fanfiction.net. My penname there is la-rubinita. Hope to see you there!
Hate it? Of course not!!! :)
All I can say is.... love it!
Don't worry, you're doing a great job!
Well done! Once again, another chapter that keeps me guessing! :) Please keep writing!
Jesus, I love malfoy. You portray his character really well, I'm looking forward to reading the rest of your chapters... keep it up! ;)
tnx goodness... this is an absolutely awesome fanfic, it would be pity if you'll just abandon this one... anyways tnx for sharing this story with us... looking forward for your next update
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! And I'm not abandoning it, just moving. It's all up over at fanfiction.net :D
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for updating this wonderful story. I was so excited when the alert email hit my inbox. I adore this story it has so much emotional depth and wonderfully original plot. I am sad to hear that you are leaving mugglenet, however i have your story favorited on fanfiction.net as well. My screenname is gryfindorkgirl and I will be following it there from now on.
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'm glad you'll be sticking with us over at ff :D Lol, I remember giggling when I saw that penname in my inbox!
Yay for longer chapters with less editing!! Boo for leaving Mugglenet. Hahah, I just don't like the layout of ff.net as much, but I guess I'll be getting better acquainted with it soon! Lol. ;)
Anywhoodles, pleased as punch to see an update! And it certainly wasn't disappointing (bah, as if it could be!) Draco and Hermione are immensely frustrating. I just want to disconnect their hearts from their brains and shake them silly. It's obvious they love one another! All the signs are there! And they're supposed to be clever. Hahaha. This isn't to say you aren't writing them well, of course. It's this kind of slow build that is absolutely enchanting and makes your story un-put-downable (or un-browser-closable, more appropriately...) It's right that they should be so conflicted and frightened; given their circumstances, I would be surprised if they were anything but. As always, tone and dialogue are top-notch. The way they speak and act are so real, like they're in the same room with me. You have a gift, my friend, and it's honestly a delight to read.
I thought you wrote Harry very well. He's not that great of a planner and his interaction with Ginny felt real to me. It's funny - for all the times I've read the Potter books, I feel like he's the most difficult character to write, maybe because he's already been so thoroughly fleshed out that there's little room for interpretation. But you did him justice, and Ginny, too. She switched from livid to reasonable to seductress in the matter of a few sentences, and I love that kind of volatility and passion in her.
Thanks so much for the update, and I can't wait to read more!! :D
Author's Response: First: Guh. And much blushing, and even a wee bit of girly squeeing. Your reviews always put me on cloud nine.
I think Draco and Hermione have imparted their frustrations onto me, because this last chapter was the most ridiculously difficult interaction between them to date. I had literally every other word of the chapter written in two days, but it took me seven months to toil through some Dramione UST/angst. I was pleased with the outcome, though, and I'm just delighted that you were too :D Then next chapter should be fun *winks*
I totally agree with you about Harry! JKR did too good a job in canon, lol, which I realise is a really strange complaint to have. There are very few authors whose work I believe does him justice on a regular basis (and I'm not one of them!), so I'm glad he passed your muster. Funnily enough, though, this whole scene pretty much wrote itself. I adore Ginny, and she's always such fun to write. I think I did all right with Harry this time because he was opposite her.
Thanks so much for the lovely review, seriously. I dont' know where I'd be without readers like you :D
YEAH! loved it. please update soon.
Author's Response: Thanks!
I'm sorry you won't be posting any more chapters here :-( I really enjoy following this fan fic and will try to keep up with it on Fanfiction.net!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I admit, I'm rather sad about it. I was introduced t fanfiction here, and it feels a little like betrayal. Isn't that silly? Thanks for sticking with me, and I hope to see you over at ff. Let me know it's you :D
this is a very good story... can't wait for the next chapter... please do update soon... tnx.
I can't wait to read what happens next!
have you forgotton this story because i would like to continue reading
Author's Response: No, it's not forgotten! RL is kicking my butt, but I promise I'll keep going :)
