Chapter: Chapter 7 - Two Gifts and a Quarrel

i also agree with the reviewer who liked the scene between harry and mrs. weasley. shes the mum he never had and always hoped for. he is the best son in law the weasleys could ask for. being friends with his parents too, i think give the weasleys even more desire to care for young harry. it also doesnt hurt how often harry has come to their aid, its rather symbiotic, really!

it was extremely well written and had such honesty. harry is afraid to treat her too much like a mother as his whole life hes been rejected by his so called family and hes afraid too because everyone he loves has been taken away. molly however has an abundance of love that you can tell having seven children hasnt even come near to putting a dent in her well of love. she has plenty to go around. she and mr weasley are good examples of what real parents should be like. :) such a joy to read!!

Author's Response: Thanks for the gift of another review! I was actually going to contact you by email as I felt my response to your last review wasn't very warm. Thank you for the opportunity to say some more things to you! I want you to know that I appreciate you reading and reviewing my fic. It means a lot to me, and I'm thrilled that you are enjoying it! The relationship Harry has with the Weasleys is quite symbiotic, I agree. I sometimes feel that he has a relationship with Ginny's parents similar to my relationship with my in-laws (forged after 22 years of knowing them!). Harry is afraid for the reasons you said but also, I feel, because he doesn't want to look like a git in front of his friends - he is after all still an awkward young man in some instances. It can be embarrassing to put one's feelings out there for the world to see. The Weasleys are my favourite family in the series, by far. They're Ms Rowling's favourite as well, that's why she named them as she did. She loves weasels apparently! Thanks again for reading and reviewing! cj

Chapter: Chapter 7 - Two Gifts and a Quarrel

I set up an account JUST so i could comment on this lol. It's absolutley brilliant, i loved it. Mainly i think because it was just like a natural progression from Book Seven and is so accurate in terms of what all the characters have gone on to do. You've got the characters completely right and I REALLY REALLY can't wait for the next part. Well done, its fantastic and I'm really eagerly anticipating the next part (its like waiting for a new HP book to come out!!).

Author's Response: Lucy, thank you so much for signing up to review my fic. That warms this author's heart! And thank you so much for your praise of my writing. I'm thrilled you are enjoying it and that you feel I've captured the characters well. Stay tuned for the coming chapters. Now that my work is almost finished (school breaks up tomorrow!) I will have some more time to write. cj

Chapter: Chapter 7 - Two Gifts and a Quarrel

im so glad you updated! i loved this chapter. i think this argument is so typical of the both of their personalities. both of them are leos, so they can be headstrong and ferocious when angry, but also loving and loyal. dont worry too much about the comments of the previous reviewers, i think you have their personalities and motivations down to a t. you knew things between ginny and harry wouldnt be so easy. ginny is fiery and she wont let harry deceive her, shes too smart for that. harry in the meantime hates when people doubt his trustworthiness and motives, as he prides himself on being honorable. theyll get past it soon enough.

Author's Response: I agree that the argument is typical of their personalities. Where did you hear that Ginny is also a Leo, though? I have all the characters' birthdays that have been mentioned on Ms Rowling's site, but haven't come across Ginny's birth date yet. Info please! Things would definitely not always be easy for our young couple. After being married for over 18 years, I understand that arguments and disagreements happen, but it isn't the end of the world or of the relationship. When there is a good foundation (as I believe Harry and Ginny have), things get resolved eventually. For that matter, some don't like Ron and Hermione arguing and bickering so often in my fics. However, I write them in such a manner as Ms Rowling writes them like that. It doesn't mean that there relationship isn't solid or it isn't any good, it's just how they relate. Anyway, thanks for reading and reviewing. Stick around for the rest. cj

I really like this story. The characters are so real and its touching, funny and romantic. I can imagine JK Rowling actually writing this. Your not JK Rowling are you? :)

Author's Response: Thank you so much. I'm thrilled you find my writing of the characters to be so real and that the story is touching, funny, and romantic. Exactly what I'm going for, so *phew*! ;) And, although you are joking, I will categorically state that I am not Ms Rowling herself. Just a huge, fanatical fan. Thanks for reading and reviewing! cj

Author's Response: I'm hurrying, I'm hurrying! Just trying to finish up the last week at work before I can concentrate on my writing. The ideas are almost all cemented in my brain, just fleshing it all out now. I hope to post in about a week or so. Hang in there! cj

o dear... a fight? if only ginny would trust harry! and that bit in the middle about tolks made me start crying!

Author's Response: Yep. A fight. The best couples have 'em. (and get over them eventually I might add). It's funny, the last reviewer wondered when Harry would change, you think it's Ginny that should. Hmmm...perhaps they both need to grow a bit? I'm glad my writing moved you, but sorry to make you sad. cj

Chapter: Chapter 7 - Two Gifts and a Quarrel

Oh that was a really good chapter. I really liked Harry giving Molly the locket, then getting exasperated with her and calling her Mum. That brought me to tears. When oh when will Harry learn not to get Ginny mad? And how is he going to make up with her? I can hardly wait for the next chapter

Author's Response: Thank you Diane. Can I call you Diane? I'm quite thrilled you liked the part about the locket and that it moved you. No one else has mentioned it and I thought it was kind of sweet myself. It's nice to know I'm not alone in my view! I'm hoping Harry will catch on within the next couple of chapters that treating Ginny like her mother does is not the best way to get closer to her. The making up bit? Well, let's just say it may take more than what he alone would be able to do or say. An outside influence is needed perhaps. Stay tuned! cj
