I love the random trivia! The only one I missed was the David Bowie reference. Honestly, who doesn't see a fedora and immediatly think of Indiana Jones? It's like associating eyepatches with pirates. You just can't help it. Great chapter. I love middle of the week updates!
I love mid week reviews so we're equally happy!
I love it - the Indy, David Bowie and Little Mermaid references. Line dancing the Hustle - how hilarious to picture. I love Ron's line to Hermione about him teaching her something.
Another wonderful chapter.
'Til next time. ;-)
And one day they'll both teach each other....LOL.
Thank you for loving the references that are such fun to sprinkle through a story! I refuse to believe wizards live in total ignorance of Muggle culture.
Graciasssss! (5 s's because it's Cinco de Mayo, amiga!)
This chapter was excelent. I love how you have developed Fred into a voice that only George could hear, its amazing. This chapter was amusing. I enjoyed it alot.
Author's Response: Everyone has a little voice in the back of their head that comments silently when verbally would get you into trouble, heh....at least I hope they do....so I was happy to make George's become "Fred"! :)
Oh my poor Bill! He must be a nervous wreck. And I can't imagine Fleur to be calm as can be, what with having so many problems with her pregnancy. I hope little Fred is born right near older Fred's death day. It might be hard on George, but it would be a really nice symbol. Plus I think Fred's voice would have a field day with that.
Author's Response: Bill is a tower of strength, but his foundation is pretty shaky right now! It's his wife, his baby...his life, really. He needs a hug, and so does George, so good thing they have good women and a mum to give it to them!
Woow, this is good!
Eeek, I have to go now..Outside...
Otherwise I would read every chapter right now. ;)
Author's Response: Aw, that's a great compliment! I hope you have fun wherever you go and enjoy the rest when you get a chance to come back and read! ^_~
I like this!=]
But...Aw, poor Georgy!=[
The world was rejoicing but his life sucked. He definitely needs love! :)
I loved the bittersweet idea! Personally, I find the candy conversations hearts disgusting, except for the white ones, which there are hardly ever any of in the box. You'll deffinately have to let us know how the Joey and Leah dating thing works out, as well as Bridget and Charlie.
Author's Response: I'm partial to yellow, then white. :) Bridget and Charlie you'll see...semi soon...:D
Your stories are so good, you have truely ruined any other authors attemps at similar stories or pairings.......for me anyway.!
Author's Response: I heart you for that! You've made my weekend and it's barely started. :)
This is a truly exellent story! Please write more!
Author's Response: I've written it...it's updating that's the tricky part, LOL. Thank you!
I was having a really crappy day but you're new chapter helped alot! Thanks! I look forward to seeing what happens next.
Author's Response: I'm sorry you had a craptacular day! I wish I had a time turner I could give you so you could undo it and start over to have a good one!
Ahh, wouldn't all mother's who go into pre-term labour love to go to a wizarding hospital.
Well, I have to say that I've spent most of my day reading this story and that I really like it. Keep up the good work and update soon. I want to know what happens!

Thank you for spending your day reading the story!
Wouldn't all mothers love to have magical powers! :D Instantly clean those dirty diapers....
There's a couple of celebrations on the way!
And the wizard heatlhcare providers probably have a wonderful way to mature tiny lungs better than the steroids they give Muggle women!
Good chapter. Keep them coming. I appreciated the correct pregnancy and birthing information, thanks for the research. Writers who use myths and fallacies as the basis for plots just annoy me.
Oh, absolutely....and if they don't...why not? What good is magic if you can't make health care better? (Besides all the other stuff, lol)
Writers who don't research have readers who catch them out and don't believe in the story anymore, which would make me sadder than Puff when little Jackie Paper didn't come to play anymore....
That was a cool twist!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! ^_^
I've read a few other fic's that place Bill being conceived before they married and I have to say that I like the idea, although it is quite disturbing.
I really like the story. Keep up the good work.

It the idea of parents being young lovers carried away by passion.
Very squicky. The mind instinctively flees disturbing mental images which might inhibit the child's own desire to procreate, LOL.
i loved the sweet moment between george and alicia in the midst of all the chaos in the hospital... and i have a feeling that there's a 50% chance that alicia wil have a girl... haha.... but i'm glad fleur is okay and cant wait to see her baby!
Sweet moments happen in the most unlikely places and times...especially when I'm writing them, LOL. The baby...oh, what fun I'm going to have. :D
Another good one, my dear - full of suspense, romance, brotherly bonding and fun.
Until next time - keep up to good work.
Author's Response: Thank you! With Fred gone, George needs all the brotherly bonding he can get!
Hi, I've begun to work my way slowly through this fic and thought I would leave a review to let you know how much I'm enjoying it even though I haven't read very much yet.
I thought this chapter was really good - I loved the idea of having a `vampire fantasy` and the implication that it is something every third year has when they learn about vampires.
Overall this fic so far has been very interesting - I like the way you are dealing with George's grief - showing how truly hard it would be to get over losing his twin - many fics have him appearing to be almost the same as he always was. I like this darker approach and the fact that the story is focused on him rather than including him as a background character makes his grief so much more acute and I like that we truly get to see his pain.
It took me a while to get used to the `sexual situations` but I think that these bits are written well and though more intense than some I have read are not overly so.
Thank you so much for leaving a review! :)
I think every female third year would have them, at least, LOL. Boys might imagine themselves as Van Helsings, hee.
Thank you for liking the way George is portrayed! It wouldn't do Fred justice if George got a girl and love magically made everything "better"! He has to work though his pain and confront all the different issues that arise so at the end of the story you'll know he'll be happy, although he'll always have sad moments and never stop missing his twin.
There's a definite physical aspect of the relationship, but I only want to show the intensity, not the details, LOL.
Author's Response: I like the Slytherin sound of those esses. :D Thankssss!
really, really liked this chapter. Thanks for letting me know about the update by the way -- I hadn't even known the last chapter was up, and it was a pleasant surprise to find out and get to read them both. I like how you have the dream on Alicia's mind, and use it to show how George is slowly progressing away from it. It makes me smile.
In the last chapter I liked how you resolved the issue with Oliver, and kudos to making the scene tug on my heartstrings, while also adding in Fred's talk of cheese and whine; that was a nice touch :) On a lighter note, I also really liked a lot of the witty one-liners from this chapter, such as "You look so manly, if I wasn't pregnant already, I'd get pregnant tonight." I really liked that!
Great job, and I look forward to another update.
Thank you for coming to read! I'm always paranoid about email alerts, thinking they're not going out. (I'd also rather believe no one knows that a chapter posted than they didn't care....sniff...lol)
Yay for you smiling....you've made me smile from ear to ear with the things you like!
