Very good, I think Ron should be a little more chivalarous. ;)

Best Wishes,

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! But wait, about Ron: are you being sarcastic, facetious, or serious? Help me out here. cj

i like it so far..... pls update soon!!

Author's Response: I'm glad you are enjoying it. My hubby's still in hospital so writing time is still non-existent for me right now. Chapter 7 is almost done though. Probably not much longer and I can submit it. cj

Definitely, your style is QUITE like JKR's
it was almost like I was reading her work!
Great job! But I have one question...
When's the next chapter??? We're dying here!!!!

Author's Response: Thanks Cordelia. I appreciate the kind words. The next chapter needs some tweaking before I can submit. However, my husband is in hospital right now, so he and my children are my priority at the moment. Thanks for reading and reviewing. cj

Okay, I was right. This story is really good. Your writing style matches the real books better than most stories do, and your characterization is great too. I've already said I like your dialogue. Any errors are tiny. Definitely update soon.

Author's Response: Thanks so much. You warm an author's heart. Again, I'm thrilled that you are enjoying my writing and believe the characterisation to be great. Oh no! There are errors? Not in canon I hope? I will update asap. My hubby is actually in hospital right now so I get no time to write. I'm hoping as he recovers I will have my regular routine back! Thanks again for reading and reviewing. cj

Wow, dialogue is really good, excellently realistic, which is really hard to pull off.
You also use a lot of Britishisms- I have no idea if you are British, but there are other airports closer to Heathrow that are small. Though we don't know where Hermione lives, Gatwick or some such is much closer than Manchester. Just a thought. I intend to keep reading this, I like it so far.
And I loved the line about Ginny commenting that Harry is good at housekeeping. He hasn't come anywhere near proposing but she seems to know what she wants already. Okay, I'm going to resist the urge to tell you more things I liked so I can go read the rest of the story now!

Author's Response: Oh wow. I'm thrilled you like my dialogue as I work very hard on getting it to sound realistic. I really detest dialogue that reads: Main character - Hello, . How are you today? I am fine. What would you like to do today?" It makes my teeth hurt just reading it! I hope it's good that I use a lot of 'British-isms'! Hmmm, am I British? I was born in Nottingham, emigrated to Canada at age 5, but still have all of my extended family living there. All I have to do to brush up on my British-isms is to phone one of my aunts or cousins! Hahahahahaha about the airports. The *only* reason I picked Manchester was because when I landed in England for a visit two years ago it was through Manchester. That way, if I did end up having a scene inside the airport, my description could be accurate! It could also have been in Birmingham as I spent time there as well when I crossed over to Ireland to visit a cousin. Just trying to keep it real! lol! I'm glad you like the Ginny line; I figured after all his practise having been forced to clean the Dursleys' abode, he would be quite good at it! Thanks for reading and reviewing! cj

Author's Response: What? You don't care? *sniffs sadly* I hope you just mean you don't mind either way. :) Thanks for the less-busy wishes. I'm hoping that this weekend I'll have some time to write the end of chapter 7 and start on 8 (which *gulp* isn't started). cj

Okaay, then why did he change the stones? There I go asking a question you won't answer! :D

Author's Response: Hey again Megan. Harry's mother (in my brain) had a locket that he saw in his vault at Gringotts. He was going to give it to Ginny but has a better idea for it. He purchased a ring for Ginny at a Muggle jewellery store but didn't like the stones in it. He asked for them to be changed for a reason that will be revealed in a later chapter (when he actually proposes marriage). I didn't want anyone else to 'see' the ring before Ginny. She's the sort that would get annoyed with that. Did that help? cj

Author's Response: Hi Lola. Yes. I'm very busy. I'm going out of my mind this week. With my night class, evening meetings, my kids badminton and basketball practices and games, preparation for my eldest child's Confirmation tomorrow night, not to mention my regular work schedule, I feel like my eyeballs are spinning! I soooooo want to finish chapter 7, there is very little to do on it, but it will be a little longer I'm afraid. I'm glad you enjoyed the chapter. As to whether Ginny will say yes - *sing-song voice* I'm no-ot tel-ling! You'll have to wait and see... cj

You had to end on a cliffhanger! I love love love this story! Its amazing! But I have a question, it's really bugging me, what color are the stones in Harry's mother's necklace?

Author's Response: Uh-oh, if that's a cliffhanger, you're gonna hate a later chapter that ends right in the middle of a brawl! I'm so pleased you love the story. Harry's mother's necklace has no stones - it is just a silver locket on a silver chain. Hope that helps. cj

Great chapter! I love how you brought the personality of the store clerk to life through the description. Can't wait to read the part about the proposal! :)

Author's Response: Thanks very much. Glad you enjoyed the snotty clerk. He's my favourite character that I love to hate. The proposal is going to be quite a few chapters away, I'm afraid. It's already written, but doesn't come up for awhile. cj
