Chapter: Chapter 4

Amazing chapter! James seems to be becoming like the incarnate of the Marauders. Hopefully that continues to develop :)

Author's Response: Yes, James is a combination of his Marauder grandfather and the Weasleys. Poor Ginny! But she has the muscle for it, having grown up with Fred & George. Very glad you're enjoying the story.

Great first chapter! Kinda sad how Harry really seems distanced from his family. Loved Kreacher! :P

Author's Response: As driven as Harry always was, I could easily see him as a workaholic. It is sad, but Ginny is working on him and you know how determined those Weasleys can be!

You certainly have a gift for fiction. I hope if you ever publish anything you'll let us know here so we can buy and enjoy it!

Author's Response: I have actually published quite a lot of non-fiction, including a book, but it's on a specialized subject, so I doubt you'd be interested. I am, however, hoping to break into the fiction market, so when and if that happens, I'll keep your offer in mind. Thank you so much!

Amazing story!!! I loved all your references to the past and how you linked everything so well. Really intriguing and great mystery! Definitely one of my favorites!

Author's Response: I'm very glad you enjoyed it. I tried to keep everything true to canon and happy to know that, from your perspective at least, I succeeded. Thanks so much for your review.

Let me tell you what your story has accomplished so far: it's kept me glued to this computer for 2 straight hours! After I have my dinner, I'll be back to finish reading it. I think the word I'm looking for is "spellbinding!"

Author's Response: Well, your comments are exactly what I want to hear, so of course I'm pleased. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

good lord! i'm never going to get to go to bed, am i?

Author's Response: I assume this means you're really into the story and I'll take this as flattery. If so, glad you're enjoying it. Sorry for the sleep deprivation, though.

okay, it might just be that you have a really broad vocabulary because all of the advanced words you are using are used correctly, but there are times when it really seems like this is an assignment for english class and you have to fit in certain words in order to get a good grade: "he was standing there with his mouth open, an attitude that might have been described as uncouth"

Author's Response: Sorry. That actually is the way I speak. One of my college majors was English, with an emphasis in English literature, and I suppose a lot of it rubbed off. I love words. I always have. English is such a diverse language, and it really is a pleasure to use it as broadly as possible, I think.

This was an amazing story ... Everything follows so well. Awesome suspense, with a very nice touch of (not-so-over-the-top-in-your-face) romance. I really feel like I know all of these characters, new and old alike, quite well from reading your story. Keep up the fantastic work!

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I did try very hard to keep the characters canon, and I'm glad to know that, from your point of view at least, I've succeeded. Your comments are deeply appreciated.

Well, how I will miss this story. You have done such a wonderful job touching the true essence of the characters Jo has given us. Many a nights after putting the kids to bed and the husband to watch a silly show, you enticed me into another wonderful chapter. Harry and Ginny our soulmates and I trully believe that as you wrote Harry's favorite role in life would be that as husband and father. Sometimes we all just need a little reminding of what is important.
As for the story it was captivating and a great mystery until the end. I look forward to future stories and would love to see you tackle Harry and Ginny a little earlier in their post DH life. Great work....well done!

Author's Response: Thanks very much and I'm so glad you enjoyed the story. It was a delightful journey, not least because of wonderful readers such as yourself who traveled along with me. As for future stories, I do have an 'early' Harry/Ginny plot bunny which deals with the chaos that I assume must have surrounded their wedding (after all, when 'The Chosen One' takes a bride, it's bound to be newsworthy). There's also another one that picks up around the time 'The Letter' ends, but has Teddy Lupin as the central character. Which of these will emerge first is anyone's guess, but meanwhile I am working on a Christmas story that focuses on Harry as well as Harry/Ginny. That one should be posted sometime in the next couple of weeks. Thanks for your very kind words. They are truly appreciated.

Awww...*sniff*...I don't know whether to be happy or sad that it's over. But I really love how you concluded this story, especially the whole thing about Zabini...No, he doesn't remind me of anyone. Really. He doesn't. :D

Anyway, I look forward to reading your next fantabulous story, seeing as this is one of my all-time favorites, and I rate it 1 billion/10!
Toodles,
Anya :]

Author's Response: I suffered my own share of mixed emotions at the end of this story, but I've finally accepted that it's time to move on. Zabini doesn't remind you of anyone, eh? Sure he doesn't! Ha! I'm no math whiz, but 1 billion/10 sounds like a pretty good score to me. Thanks so much for your very flattering words and for your faithful reviews. Hope to hear from you again when I post my Christmas story which will be, hopefully, sometime in the next couple of weeks.

Thank you so much! That was very helpful. I can't wait to read your Christmas story!

Wow! Thank you so much for completing this, I have enjoyed reading it so much that i've been checking for updates daily! For me, you have really captured Harry and Ginny, especially in relation to their love for the children. Harrys responses through out seem true to character, it has been a joy to read. Ever siince Deathly Hallows i've been imagining what happen in those intervening years, but I think that you have captured it best. I eagerly await your next story!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words and for your loyalty to the story. Reviews like yours have been the driving force since the first chapter and will undoubtedly send me back for a return journey very soon. I really appreciate your review. Take care!

Chapter: Chapter 19

I absolutely love it. And thank you for the afterword, it was so interesting. I caught the bit about Calpurnia from To Kill a Mockingbird (one of my favorite books too!), but I didn't know the bit about her being Julius Caesers wife. Very interesting. By the way, how do you make only one word itallics? I can't figure it out, but I noticed you do it twice in your story (which is amazing, I honestly can't say just how good it is enough) and if you could let me know how that would be wonderful. Thank you!

Author's Response: If you look at the bottom of your keyboard, above the comma and period keys, there are little brackets (< >) that appear if you hold down the shift key at the same time. To italicize, you place before the word you want to emphasize, then place a to close the italics. Works the same way with bold or centering
. Just be sure to add the back slash at the close, otherwise you'll italicize/bold/center the entire text. Thanks for your kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed the Afterword.

Author's Response: And I just demonstrated the truth of my own words, as I forgot to close out everything. So here are the symbols for closing out the italics/center/bold.


Author's Response: Okay, clearly the symbols don't show up in this context, so I'll spell it out for you. To begin italics you place a < followed by an "i" followed by a >. To close italics, use a < followed by a / followed by another "i" followed by a >. Do the same thing with bolding and centering. Hope that helps.

Very great story! I really enjoyed reading it. Keep up the good work.

Author's Response: Thank you. I will certainly try to keep it up with future fics. Take care!

I always forget to say something I wanted to say in my reviews! I just wanted to say that I'm glad you added all the little explanations at the end of the epilogue, I love hearing what JKR has to offer for background info and I loved yours just as much. And I've read from your responses what you're planning to write in the future, and I can't wait! I would absolutely love to see your take on Harry and Ginny's wedding and I can't wait for the Christmas story. And I will of course be looking forward to Teddy's story too.

Author's Response: Thanks! I wasn't sure whether to inclcude that information or not, but I did put a lot of thought into those names and figured some people would find it interesting. Or at least they'd realize that my claims of "method to my madness" had some basis in truth (lol!). I'm going to try to get the Christmas story completed in the next couple of weeks, but other fics will probably have to wait till after the holidays. I'm looking forward to writing them, though, and to hearing from you again once they're posted. Thank you, "Tomato." Your reviews are so deeply appreciated.

What a great story! Your character developement of the children is fantastic. I feel like JKR just named the characters but you created them. Thank you for wirting this fanfic, and I wish that you were geting paid to do so. I can't wait to see more of your stories. I have many many favorite stories but few favorite Authors and I want you to be one of them.

-Michela

Author's Response: I am very flattered by your comments, but I have to disclaim, in all modesty, about the children, because JKR did a lot more than just name them. She gave us a few hints about their personalities in the Epilogue (and added further details in post-DH interviews, I might add) and knowing so much about their parents played a huge role. Genetics does play a role in personality development, and knowing the parents' personalities gave me a hint as to their possible parenting styles as well. From there you can sort of "build" your own kid, but Jo's influence was very much in the forefront of my mind when I was determining a lot of these things. At any rate, I very much appreciate your kind remarks and thank you from the bottom of my heart for your faithful reviews. I'm glad I'm one of your favorite authors, and hope to hear from you again when I post my Christmas story later this month. Take care!
