Oh my. Somehow I knew that Harry would volunteer to help Malfoy. He certainly would testify for Narcissa. But Lucius won't get any help from him. It's an interesting way of rehabilitating those from the Dark side. This should be entertaining.

Author's Response: I agree that Harry would not care one whit about Lucius. He would be able to tolerate Narcissa because of her concealing the fact that Harry was still alive. I figured that the Ministry would play a role in rehabilitating those who once worked for Voldemort. That would be preferable to having them run around at large, bored and unemployed. That would only lead to trouble! cj

I think Ginny is comparing herself to Harrys standing in his quest of the Cup. I know she's kicking herself for not listening to Hermione about Runes. She needs to keep believing herself, there's only 20 points between her and the Durmstrang Champion. I must go on.

Author's Response: To her, it feels like much, much more than that. Stay tuned! cj

He hee hee, Only Ron would mess up a proposal. I think I know what was going on in his head. He just couldn't say it. It was sweet in it's own way. Another Good one.

Author's Response: Heehee - I often have conversations in mind for my characters (or, in this case, Ms Rowling's characters), but get stuck at a certain point. That's always a good time to get them to 'trail off' or have someone else interrupt them, that way I don't need to think of the whole dialogue! cj

Hooray!!! Severus is where he should be. I'm sure that's a relief to Harry. I guess Ginny is finding the uncomfortable side of being a "hero". Good one.

Author's Response: Thank you about the praise regarding Snape. And, yeah, heroes. Harry was often uncomfortable in that role, so I figured she would be as well. cj

Oh dear. That is going to be interesting. but in some ways creepy. It would serve Ron right is Ginny was able to bring out a Spider. But something tells me it will be something much bigger.

Author's Response: Ooh - I never thought of a spider. That would have given Ron a heart attack, I think! cj

That is just what I thought would happen. Molly going ballistic, and George encouraging her. I can't wait to see what the tasks are. I am sad that there will be no Quidditch. How else is Ginny going to be invited to play for the Harpies?

Author's Response: *rubs hands together gleefully* You'll see how she gets invited. You'll see! cj

Bravo!! I'm sure Harry wanted to wait until Christmas too. It's just as well he did it now. Even though it won't stop Ginny from entering the Tournament.

Author's Response: I knew he wouldn't be able to hold off until Christmas; I think he is quite impulsive sometimes! You're right that it won't stop Ginny. Hey. Have you read this before? ;) cj

I have to admire you for having Molly start the guest lecturers for the DADA. i don't suppose she got any more lip after that. i had a feeling that Ginny would want to enter the tournament. I can only hope that this one will be safer.

Author's Response: I saw Molly as such a capable and talented witch after her part in the Battle at Hogwarts that I knew I wanted to include her as a DADA instructor. She didn't get any more lip after her comment; the students looked at her with new respect! The new tournament is, indeed, much safer. cj

I'm sure you are right. Harry would have been very insistent that a portrait of Severus would be in the Heads office. It was good that Dobby was remembered. I'm also sure that a goblin was killed. I am very glad to be rereading this as it brings back good memories.

Author's Response: Ms Rowling herself has said that she believes Harry would be instrumental in getting Snape's portrait up in the headmaster's office. I knew I had to include Dobby! Oops. I guess I missed the fallen goblins. I was going for all those connected to the Order, or to Hogwarts in some way, though, so I guess I can be forgiven, as goblins are not connected to either, really. I am so thrilled that you are re-reading it, too! cj

I don't understand after what happened that another Tournament would be held so soon. I guess that's wht the Diggorys want. At least Ron had the courage to pluck up and ask Hermione to the Ball. Again it will be interesting.

Author's Response: Glad you liked Ron asking Hermione! Call the Tournament poetic license. It's what I needed for the end to be what it can be. (remember the very first scene in chapter 1?) It seemed too soon for me, too, but ... cj

I think I'm going to really like Professor
Oblongata. I do wish JKR had been able to include it. I'm so glad Harry and Ginny are back together.

Author's Response: Thank you. I like her too. cj

Well at least Harry and Ginny were able to make up. I'm sure she was as miserable as he was. Thank goodness Flitwick was there to save the swamp. I'm sure once it is explained to her, she'll be understanding. I can't wait to go on.

Author's Response: I imagine that Professor Oblongata would have been horrified to know that she almost destroyed the swamp. She would be quite understanding when she discovered the truth. cj

Another chapter read and loved. Harry should have known better than to try and keep something from Ginny. On the other hand I think Harry has proved himself to her and she needs to trust him. On to the next.

Author's Response: He's a bit dim sometimes isn't he? I'm glad he eventually learns his lesson in that regard. And I agree about Ginny. I think her childhood issues would hinder her for a bit, though, until she could work through them. It can't have been easy living in that house, for Ginny or Ron. She was always trying to prove herself, thus the tension with her mum who tended to baby her, and Ron had to compete with so many older brothers. cj

Oh how I enjoyed the encounter at Gingotts. Again Harry shows that he is a very special Wizard. I look forward to the next.

Author's Response: The sword scene was the first scene I wrote for this fic, would you believe? It's still one of my favourite ones. Glad you like it as well. cj

Name: FriendofMolly (Signed) · Date: 10/05/11 14:54 · For: Chapter 5 - Popping the (First) Question
Another good chapter. I like the way you have the characters progressing.. But you did gloss over Ginnys birthday. It was her 17th, so it would have been a big one.

Author's Response: Thank you. And yes. Oops. *bangs head on table* 17 is the 'big celebration' in the wizarding world isn't it? Shoot. Maybe I should go back and add some stuff? What gift would she get from her Mum and Dad do you think? cj

It's strange that the Memory charm was going wonky . Perhaps it had a time limit. So it's good Hermione was able to find them. I can't imagine what the staff at the hospital thought. Well that part of the H hunt is done. I'm so glad.

Author's Response: Yeah, I don't know where the memory charm going wonky came from, but I wanted to introduce a bit of urgency, or tension, for Hermione on her quest. Have to have conflict, right? cj

I liked this chapter as much as the previous. It makes sense tha Harry would worried about Hermione and Ron. This is the first time they've been separated in 7 years. Not counting summer holidays, and that wasn't long. On to the next.

Author's Response: That's how I felt! They're his best friends. They've shared so much, and, as you say, they have not been separated much at all. cj

Now this chapter brought memories of your story back to me. It's a good chapter. I think the getting the house ready for the Grangers was a terrific way of transition to what life can be. I liked it very much.

Author's Response: Thank you for saying. cj

I'm going to reread this from the beginning. I look very much forward to it. I love how you have them starting out. Leaving Harry behind has to be hard, but I think of all of them he needs time to recover and figure out his future. Not to mention time with Ginny without Ron around to interupt. I really love what you have written.

Author's Response: What a sweet reader you are. Thank you so much for taking the time to re-read it! I do so sometimes, and it bothers me because I love the early chapters, but I see how I would do it all differently if I re-did it. Oh well. That's normal, I guess. Anyway, I like what you say about Harry. I felt the same - he, more than anyone, needed time to refresh, to rejuvenate. cj

I really love your book. It's very good and you are truly mirroring Rowling's style of writing. I have searched through lots of fan fiction sites to find a story like yours, and this was the only good one that followed canon that I could find :) One thing though: I really hope you are not planning on marrying the two couples this young. They are only seventeen, eighteen... I do think it's very young. I hope that they haven't gotten married yet (I haven't read past this chapter yet) and you are planning on making them marry in like five years or something. Either way I think you are a truly gifted writer!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for your positive review. I am pleased that you are enjoying it so far, and that you find it follows canon and Ms Rowling's style. Hmmm...do I marry them off? I will not reveal everything about the end of my fic, but I will say two things: (1) they are married by the end of my fic, but (2) they are not 17 when they do marry. Keep in mind that Ms Rowling herself has said that the trio married very young. That's canon. Stay tuned! I hope you enjoy the rest. cj
