I loved this chapter, I can't wait for the next one!
Author's Response: Thanks, nutmeg! It shouldn't be too long after DH is released. :D ~GG
Aaaawwwwww, that was so sweet and sad at the same time! Poor Harry, he must be feeling a million times worse than Cho did in fifth year. And I always pictured Harry as a good dad. By the way, what does "dichotomous" mean? Please refrain from using big words durign summer vacation, lol. Awesome job, I'm eagerly awaiting the next chapter!
Author's Response: Definitely, he sure does feel bad. Complicated emotions flying all around this chapter, aren't they? Dichomous: Divided into two mutually exclusive, opposed, or contradictory groups. (www.dictionary.com, dear. :P) It basically means feeling two completely opposite things at the same time, the way it's used in this chappie. Thanks for the review! Obviously the next chapter will have to wait until after DH!!!!! *twitches* YAY!! ~GG
Hermione's emotions about her coming baby at the beginning of this chapter seemed very real. I love how much Harry cares for the baby, because it just seems so in character. All in all, another amazing chapter!!
Author's Response: Thanks. :) I just tried to imagine how I would feel if I were in Hermione's position. I love Harry's part in this chapter, too. He's so sweet! Hehe. Thanks so much for the review, Alison! ~GG
Wow, I'm really impressed! You sure do know how to convey emotion effectively, I really truly thought for a moment that I was reading the Seventh Book!
The Scariest thing is, this could very well be what happens! Only a day left ;)
Author's Response: Thank you, Shinobi! hehe, though I don't really think I can take credit for your lovely compliment about it being like the seventh book, but I'm flattered nonetheless. Thanks again for the review! *hugs* ~GG
LOVED IT! acnt wait for the next chapter!! Poor Hermione =( a baby and the daddy isnt even alive =(
Author's Response: THANKS! Yeah, I know...it's so sad. :/ I hated killing Ron, lol. I appreciate the review! ~GG
Wow, didn't see that one coming. The father IS Ron, right? With you, one never knows. Great chapter, and I'm eagerly awaiting more!
Author's Response: Lol, well there were hints in the chapter....(morning sickness? hehe). Glad you liked it though. :D THanks for the review! ~GG
This is a really good story so far, and although of course I thought it was sad, i still really like it. I could tell (not to boast or anything) that Hermione was pregnant. You made it pretty obvious, not that that is a bad thing. I can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Yep, that's what I call a little foreshadowing. ;) People who are paying attention are supposed to guess she's pregnant. I'm glad you liked the story even though it made you sad. Thanks so much for the review! I'll have the next chapter in queue as soon as I can. *hugs* ~GG
I hope that her baby looks like ron
Author's Response: Lol, you'll find out. ;) ~GG
omg that was soo sad and im like crying but it was really good
Author's Response: Aw. =/ Don't cry! But thanks...I'm so glad you liked it! ~GG
Great chapter. As soon as i read about Hermione being sick i suspected she was pregnant!
Author's Response: Great intuition, nutmeg! I sense you would have been great at Divination. ;-) Thanks for the review! *hugs* ~GG
Quite a twist at the end... I really love this story. I love the mystery and originality to it. You're an amazing writer! I can't wait to read more!
Author's Response: Thank you, Alison! Glad you liked the ending. ;) Sadly, the originality of the fic I can't take credit for, since I adopted it from my House over on the forums. I'm just lucky enough to make this plot bunny come to life. :D I probably won't be able to submit chapter 3 before they close the queue for the DH release, but I hope you'll come back when it does get posted. *hugs* ~GG
geez make me cry. Nah only joking that was really good cant wait for more!
Author's Response: Hehe, aw. Glad you liked it though! I hope to have the next chapter submitted very soon. Thank you so much! ~GG
Wow, for someone who never writes angst, you did a fantastic job with the heartbreak! This was so sad and touching. The beginning had just enough backstory so that we learned what had happened to both Ron and Ginny without moving away from the focus on Harry and Hermione. You did a great job of showing Hermione's grief throughout, and the bit of foreshadowing when Harry hugged her was a nice touch. The end where Hermione runs after the casket is just gut-wrenching.
This was exceptionally well-written and I look forward to reading more, especially about Harry. Good luck as you continue!
Author's Response: Hehe, thanks, Gina! For the angst part I just had to imagine how I would feel if Ron died. :P I think I really related to Hermione's side of the story in this chapter because it was easier to put myself in her shoes instead of Harry's, which is really why it revolved around her more. And you know how I like foreshadowing. ;-) Of course a brilliant Turnip like yourself would have picked up on that...I'm glad someone did.
Thanks ever so much for the great review! Glad you like it so far (since I've already suckered you into betaing chapter 2 *ebil laughs*).
*huggles* ~Ashley :D
I think the imagry and figurative language (very creative, might I add) really enhanced the mood of the story. Good job!
Author's Response: Thank you! I think it's really important to have vivid descriptions so the entire story isn't just boring dialogue. ;) I'm glad you liked the chapter! :D ~GG
Wow, this was unbelievably sad. Yet I want to read more! This fic goes greaatwith "My Heart Will Go On", if anyone wants to help enhance the mood (not that thas needed with GryffindorGoddess's awesome writing)
Author's Response: Haha, goodness that song makes me cry by itself! I would probably bawl if I paired it with this chapter, lol. You, dear, sure know how to brighten my day. You always leave such lovely compliments. *beams* Thanks ever so much! XX ~GG
It's not fair to make us poor readers cry on the first chapter. The first chapter! But it takes a great writer to achieve a reaction like that, so in some strange way, it's a compliment.
This is wonderful so far. I can't wait to read to the rest.
Author's Response: *blushes* Thank you so much for the compliment, D.E.! Sorry I made you cry though =/ The next chapters are less sad and more actual angst, so hopefully you won't cry. But I don't know, those are kinda sad too.... I hope to submit the second chapter soon! :D Looking forward to seeing you around these parts. *hugs* ~GG
oh no, now i have a huge lump in my throat! that was soo sad! i really really really hope that DOESN'T happen! it was a really good story though.
Author's Response: Aw sad! I know, I SO hope that doesn't happen in DH either! I'm glad you liked it. There are 7 more chapters to go if you're still interested in hanging around! :D thanks for reviewing, hollyberries! ~GG
**sob** I started reading this at work and made it as far as parg 3 before i realized that i was crying and would have to wait till I got home to finish reading.....
**going to get more tissues now**
Author's Response: Aww, Thea! That makes me sad! Hehe, promise you won't ever read this story at work again. =P It really does get a little less sad as time goes on, being that no one else dies (for now). *huggles* No more tears! :D ~GG
**sob** I started reading this at work and made it as far as parg 3 before i realized that i was crying and would have to wait till I got home to dinish reading.....
**going to get more tissues now**
Author's Response: awww there there....
This is great, its so sad but really well written. Will there be more?
Author's Response: Yes! Eight chapters in all, as far as it's planned now. I'm hoping to have chapter 2 posted soon. Thanks for the review! I'm so happy to hear you liked it. :D ~GG
