I always thought that Harry would loose his ability to speak Parseltonge when he destroyed the part of sole in him.

Author's Response: Hehe, me too, and JKR confirmed that he does in an interview somewhere, so I guess we were both right =) Thanks for reviewing!

This story was really intersting and unique. I never even thought that harry might miss speaking parseltoungue but he probably would have, at least when he first found out. Props to you from capturing Harry's reaction perfectly. thanks for a good read and interesting story :)

Author's Response: Thank you for taking the time to read and review. I always considered parseltongue to be one of those things that , although he never really used it or felt comfortable with, he would miss when he no longer had it. I am very glad you thought I got Harry's reaction down perfectly, as that was the hardest bit of the thing to write.

I like it. It's a good idea on how he figured out he couldn't talk to snakes. 10/10!!

Author's Response: Thanks. Hary used his parseltongue so infrequently I didn't think it would be something he noticed quickly at all, or something he even thought about. I am very glad you liked this

What a quaint little vignette of the Harry and Ginny's life! The idea of Harry missing being a parselmouth was carried through the story nicely. You persented the story believably, and it flowed quite nicely.

I had one very minor issue with the time line suggested 'ten years or so' and feel that it perhaps should have read around about the 15 year mark, as you mentioned that James would be off to Hogwarts in the next year, this event is construed to have taken place approximately around the 16/17th year after Voldemort's downfall.

Apart from that, I loved the story.

Author's Response: Thank you veyr much for the lovely review! I couldn't help but feel that this was something worth having, even if it did come from such an evil place. It is effectively an entirely different world Harry has lost access too, which is sad, because unlike Voldemort he didn't abuse it. I see what you mean about the year thing too, and will try to remember to change it.

I thought this was great. I really loved this insight into Harry's feelings as a dad (and what a typical dad he is!). I really liked your depiction of the kids' personalities, too. What a little scamp that James is! I realize this is a one-shot, but I'd sure love to see you do something else along these lines, perhaps give us a little wider window into the Potters' family life. Oh, and by the way, unlike a previous reviewer, I had no trouble at all understanding that the children were NOT parseltongues!

Author's Response: I did struggle a bit getting Harry as a dad just the way I wanted it, so I am very glad you liked it (and thought it typical)! The kids were a bit easier, but not much. I really want3ed to make sure they all had different personalities, and that they weren't perfect little angels. Although this is a one shot, I have nearly finished another piece that is along these same lines. It is kind of a sequel, although it can be read separately. It is also nice to know you had no problems understanding the point of the fic =)

Good job on this charming little oneshot, however I do have some (very little, I'm very tired and I really don't have enough time to leave a proper, really nitpicky review) but:
1. Quotations- use quotation marks correctly. Please don't use apostrophes, it looks so unprofessional and is so difficult to read.

2. Confusion near the end- are the children parseltongues??? Or am I just being really thick and tired and missing a whole part of the story?

But besides from these minor critiques, one of them a mere formatting error, I really like this insight. Good job and sorry for leaving such a lack-luster review, but I hope it was somewhat helpful, perhaps later I will take the time to write more, I enjoyed your story so much I wouldn't mind reading/reviewing again.

Author's Response: Hehe, well, in answer to your commetns
1) They aren't apostrophes, they are single quotations marks. PErfectly acceptable in England, and JKR uses them herself.
2) The children aren't parseltongues...neither is Harry though, which is kind of the whole point. He only thinks they are because they can understand him, and he doesn't realise he no longer is himself.
I am very pleased you liked this though, and liked it enough to consider reading it again. ^^
