Another great chapter! Yes, we darned Americans came up with s'mores. Aren't you jealous you didn't think of them first? :) I love how Lia started a fire in the middle of a train... in fact, it's the kind of crazy thing I'd do!
I am going to deliver an entire BAKERY to you for this chapter!! Out so soon after the other, and then so heartbreaking! I was wondering if Hermione had ever nursed Callie and how the whole infant care thing was handled. Hermione really robbed herself, didn't she? All those memories with Lia but mere pictures of Callie. And Draco, too, having to choose a daughter just to never see the other again. Merlin, I may write physical torture, but this is emotional agony and therefore about one billion times worse.
Oh, it all makes me so angry at them. They should have tried! I don't care if they were upset! And signing in blood?? Honestly, Draco should have said something. Idiots, the pair of them.
And yet, both Callie and Lia are well adjusted (if not devious) kids, and I have faith in them, Because if anyone can fix a broken Dramione, it's those two. :)
Author's Response: I'm thinking of co-authoring with you so you can let out your anger and frustration at D and H by perhaps making C and T hang them up on the ceiling by their toenails. :D Muhahah. Oh, your review is so spot-on and inspiring, thanks, dearest!
Callie, Lia AND Albus steal this story!!!
That smootch was pure bliss! I hope Hermione can get past her hurt and surrender to her luuuuuuurve!! LOL!
Hehehehe!! Vengeance! Goody girls!!
All I have to say is BUSTED!!! Hehehehe!!
MY PRAYERS HAVE BEEN ANSWERED!
And thank you to your beta for deciding to make sure you update every week! This gives me something to look forward to!
And in case I haven't mentioned this in another review.....
This is totally the best Dramione fic EVER. :) Keep writing! You're awesome!
Author's Response: YOU are awesome! Thank you so mucho! :D
First: Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee an update woooohooooooooooooo yayayayayyyyyyy!! ::jigs::
Second: Aw, thanks for the author's note shout out! I'll threaten you any time you need it! In the nicest ways possible, of course. ;)
Third: THE CHAPTER! "I will not allude to, admit or acknowledge my kinship to my other daughter, Thalia, on the possible event that we should meet or be questioned." That's just cruel. Cruel cruel cruel and I hate them both for even thinking of it.
Hagrid! He's always been one of my favorite characters and I think you wrote his interaction with Draco well. Cordial, but not overly so.
Hermione and Draco's interaction was so sweet!! Gosh, I hate them one paragraph, I love them the next. Still doesn't stop me from wanting to knock their heads together and yell at them to quit being so foolish. Ah, well, wouldn't have a story if I could do that, right? And the last thing I want to do is rob you of this wonderfulness. Can't wait for the next chapter!! :D
Author's Response: ::jigs with you!:: Thanks, thanks, thanks, Mel! I love your squeeing and grumbling here. Bwahahaha. :D
I found this yesterday and read it straight through. It's absolutely fantastic! Fred, George and Albus in particular are so spot on I wonder if you aren't JKR herself indulging in the world of fanfiction! Ha! Really, your story is so wonderful, and I hope to see an update soon!
Author's Response: So glad! A new reader! Thank you so much, aaaaaand I've updated! :D
Yes, I do like it... in fact, I love it. I'm absolutely intrigued!
So far so great, just to check this is inspired by the movie "the parent trap" right. If not are well and if so I knew it!
Author's Response: You got it. It IS The Parent Trap, Potterized! :D
I love this story! I hope you update soon!
Every time I read this story, it's even awesomer. For me, that happens with only really awesome stories. Like this one! This story is really awesome!
Ah, Joanna, you've done it again! I'm permanently hooked to this story! I love the little things you've done: Joanna Bowling, for instance, in the first chapters. I nearly fell off the couch - what a brilliant touch! And that moment after the explosion when Draco got Lia and Hermione got Callie was so awesome! You have a real gift for writing children. Callie and Lia here, and Lucy in "Somebody Bends." They're so sweet but such little devils! :)
I think it's time to tell us what actually happened between Draco and Hermione. I'm dying to know!! How could she be filled with such hatred for the man who has taken care of Callie and obviously loves them both!
Looking forward to an update!!
What a delightful take on both HP and The Parent Trap! I was so excited to see an update - I really enjoy your writing style and ability to make non-canon pairings seem cohesive.
I love this story!
Why oh Why do you do this!?!?! You seem determined to make me insomniac with your writing! I can't possibly NOT go on reading now...
Minerva's "ehem".... just the WAY you wrote that chapter. The back and forth of POV's.... It was impeccable!!!! *sigh*
I'm terribly sorry, but I simply CAN'T wait for more!!!
Author's Response: I'm sorry! But I'm really not. It says something about the success of each chapter if the reader keeps saying, just one more, just one more. LOL. :)) Thanks, Kaiserin!
POR LAS BARBAS MULTICOLORES DE MERLIN!!!!
This chapter was SOOO SOOO SOOO incredibly... I don't even have words!!!!! I mean!!! I feel like screaming and tap dancing and jumping up and down giggling like mad!!!!
Minerva's words of welcome made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!! ^.^ That was just about the most perfect welcoming speech that could be written for PROFESSOR Granger!! (won't get tired of that, ever!)
The allergy thingy, was lovely as well. I mean Lia fussing over Callie like that...
And Madame Prince's antics. Priceless!!!
And Nick!!! Sir Nick!! Trust it to a ghost to be unrelated to the matters of the living around him and unwillingly unveil SUCH a secret.
BTW, I LOOOOOOOOOOVED the fact that you made him assume Callie being Ron's daughter!! Another priceless moment!!!
I can't wait to see Callie's reaction to that. Her response... Does she believe it? How does she react to her mother being there, then? Will she tell Lia? What will SHE say?
Gods!!!!! You're TOO good to be true writer!! I'm telling you!! Amo tu fic!!! Positively besoted with it!! Muack!
Author's Response: I love the ALL-CAPS in this review. Especially that part in Spanish. :)) And oh, the multiple exclamation points!!! Must have really done good with the chapter! Thanks again, Kaiserin! :))
Peals before swine!!!
Hermione Charms teacher!!! Soo fitting...
Now, don't you tell me, Janus will be fired too. That'd be just soo perfect!!
So, let me guess? The agreement says she can't "see" Callie, but there's nothing about teaching her, right? PERFECTO!!!!!
Poor Professor Flitwik... :( He's one of my very faves, you know... I'm soo saw she had to go...
Will Hermione get a suitor anytime soon? Someone our lovely soon-to-be dynamic duo will have to dispose of????? Maybe this Julius guy? Or perhaps we'll have a cameo of Viktor?
^_^ Spellbound by this bewitching piece of creative writing!!! XOXO
I think Callie and Lia are the perfect mix!!
^_^ The plot thickens... The Hermione Granger Fund... Interesting. Wonder who's the mastermind behind that one!
And Draco and Pansy! That scene between them was awesome!!! Pansy acting all annoyed but still going with the flow...
Can't picture Draco in a cottage either, BTW!
Uhm... the "frictions" are amusing actually!! Kia and Nelly don't seem to get along, I wonder if there's a chance that'll change or they're doomed to continue with the trademark Gryffindor-Slytherin archrivalry.. tun tun tun tun... Only time will tell.
I'm more concerned about Lia's determination of telling her "half" sister about her alledgedly unholy conception... *shudders* That's bound to get violent....
I've alrealy used brilliant too many times. So this time I'll go with ripping!!! The chapter, I mean!!! Kuddos!
