I love everything about this story. I have been with you since the beginning and get so excited when there is a new update.
Please keep going with this and promise you won't let it die.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words! Thank you, also, for sticking with me through the long weeks without updates. Stay tuned, I promise I will finish. Like Ms Rowling herself, I have the ending written already. It's just the next three chapters I need to do, and then I have the final three already set to go. cj

MORE MORE MORE!!!!!!!!!! Please finish this one. I love this one and for some reason the one's I truly love never get finished. This was the second one I read after I found this site, that was in Oct. '09 and I bookmarked it right away, waiting for you to finish. :)

Author's Response: Well, I have every intention of finishing what I have started, so I sure hope that doesn't mean this will not end up being a favourite when you read the very last chapter! I may take a long time to update each chapter, but I *will* update. Thanks for sticking with me! cj

Bravo, Bravo! I am glad that Ginny is getting to see that it wasn't awesome skill or anything that helped Harry...:) Reminded me of them saving Hermione from the mountain troll..."5 points to each of you for sheer dumb luck." :)

Author's Response: Thank you! And I love that quote of McGonagall's. Thanks for reminding me about it. cj

Hey mate!!

Great work on this chapter! I'm loving the H/G interaction and the fact that Hr/R can recover from their spats...

Looking forward to the next chapter!

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm pleased you like the little touch of maturity I've added into Ron and Hermione's relationship. {or was it that I didn't know how to get them to make up? :) } Stay tuned. cj

Wow, it's like getting a surprise phone call from someone you haven't talked to for a long time, and you have to make your brain remember stuff, lol.

Poor Ginny, getting her lights knocked out in the Forest...she's lucky she didn't get eaten by something. After all of those years of idolising Harry, thinking he was some brave, strong hero, it's nice to see her finally realise that he's just, well, lucky.

Haha @ Ivan hitting her up for a date, as if it wasn't enormous public knowledge that she and Harry were an item. That must have taken some gobstones.

The scene with Snape's portrait-I'm of two minds. One one hand, I can't see Snape ever saying nice things to Harry, no matter what it was for, but on the other things, the afterlife (in whatever form it may be) would seem to give on a renewed perspective on what matters and what does not. Plus, if my inferences on the HP afterlife are correct, he could have seen Lily there, and that could have softened him a bit. Not to mention hanging out with Dumbledore all day, who no doubt has extolled Harry's finer qualities several times over, would cause Snape to see Harry in death how he would have never considered seeing him in life.

Okay, hope that wasn't too long-winded. It was nice to see a new chapter up, and I look forward to the next installment [whenever that may be]. :)

Take care and happy writing,


Author's Response: Hi Jess. Thanks for the lovely and long review. They are the reward of my writing! Yes, I figured it was time Ginny got to realize what Ron did in DH - that sometimes the 'heroic' things are just lucky. Ah yes, the portrait scene. I knew I wanted Snape to say something, but the trick is getting him to talk in the same way as before, but different. I also figured that if he knew who had been responsible for getting his portrait up in the office, then he would realize how Harry feels and would know he understands his motivation. I was hoping it got the point across without being too sappy as he would never be sappy in his interactions with Harry! Thanks for reading and reviewing! Stay tuned! cj

Chapter: Chapter 1 - Summer That Year

Re CJ: You sure do have a lot on your plate, what with kids, sports, charity, work ect...Glad you can find the time to write this very entertaining story for all of us who crave more HP material like myself. I too have a lot on my plate with college p/t, work f/t, hockey team I play for, practice, excercise, reading constantly (work and pleasure) but I ALWAYS make sure to find time to just have fun and enjoy myself. Hope you find that bit of time too! It really is crucial to maintaining your sanity.

To answer your hockey question, I am a borderline obsessive Anaheim Ducks fan, have been since 1998 when I first found hockey. I can attribute that to my Canadian born parents who then moved and met in So Cal where I then became a huge Ducks fan and still am. My team is having a rough start to the season though, but hey we can't win the Cup every season now can we? Well if I had it my way of course we would. I also really love Philly, they are for sure my favorite eastern conference team, however my Ducks are always # 1 priority for NHL. Who is your team?

I hope you can find some time to continue the story, sorry to hear you havn't been too satisfied with it recently, but it is truly very incredible and I would be sooo so sad if you were to discontinue it. I know many others here would be also. But real life of course does and should take president over certain things.

Author's Response: I am busy, but I know I do not have a monopoly on that - my dh is even busier! You yourself seem as if you have time restraints as well! Anaheim, huh? I wish your team well this season. I haven't watched much hockey lately. I am from Winnipeg , Manitoba, Canada, so the Winnipeg Jets have always been close to my heart. Of course, they have been 'in disguise' and pretending they are playing in a different city for quite a few years now. I can't wait til they remember that they're a Winnipeg team! I follow my kids' favourite teams - Pittsburgh Penguins and Detroit Red Wings. It's very exciting in this household when the two play each other in the finals! As I mentioned to Amberleaf, things are slowing down a bit, thank goodness, and I am picking up the pen again (so to speak). Thanks for the pep talk - it truly does help! cj

I have just stumbled upon Fanfiction from Mugglenet and I was extremely lucky to read your story. It is absolutely brilliant!!!! I am amazed how like JK Rowling you write! You really captured the characters well. I am sooo hooked on your story... please write more soon!

Author's Response: I am so excited for you, Melissa, that you have recently discovered Mugglenet. I remember the first time I stumbled upon the site and thoroughly enjoyed it, immersing myself in the stories. I am pleased that you are enjoying my story and believe my character portrayal to be like Ms Rowling's herself. Thanks so much for the review! cj

Chapter: Chapter 15 - Champions

Just finished the new chapter, sorry my review is a bit delayed been caught up in the new hockey season!

The chapter was incredible, I am a huge Ginny/Harry sap, so essentially this chapter was only more of the very thing I crave in other fan fics I read. I would have been more surprised if Ginny had NOT been selected than if she actually was like in the story, but I love it all the same. The challenge given to the champions seems to out due just about any challenge we saw in the original tournament, which is why I think it's cruel to leave us cliffies. But as some say, not me personally, absence makes the heart grow fonder. So more excited, anxious and "fond" of your story I will become until your next post. Which I hope is very soon? Please! =)

Great work, can't wait for the next installment.

Author's Response: Thanks for the gift of another review, Brian. (and I really want to put a 'Y' in your name instead of an 'I' as my dh's is with a 'Y' and so I am more used to that spelling) I am thrilled that you thought the chapter incredible. I have been a bit 'bummed' about the story lately. Reviews like yours help me to get back into a writing mood. I have zero time to write, though, which is very frustrating for me. I now have three children in two different sports each, plus I have 3 different causes with which I volunteer in addition to my full time job. *phew* No wonder I feel tired! I hope to treat myself to some uninterrupted computer time this weekend in order to finish the next chapter. LOL, yes it would have been more surprising if she had not been chosen, it was rather obvious that she would be, wasn't it? Although if you wish to be even less surprised, re-read the intro to my first chapter! Stay tuned. And what team do you follow for hockey? cj
