why isnt this in romance

Author's Response: Because the mods in charge of the romance section of MuggleNet rejected this story because, according to them, my characters were OOC. I then resubmitted it under the General heading (without changes) whereupon it was immediately accepted and,as you can see, developed a large following. And that's just one of the reasons why I'm not sure I'll ever post another story here again. However, I am continuing to post on fanfiction.net (under the name Cassandra's Cross) so feel free to seek out my stories there.

this was a great story hope u have a sequel and if u do plz tell me when

Author's Response: I have written the start of a sequel, but haven't decided whether or not to post it here. It's currently posted on fanficton.net (under the name Cassandra's Cross), but I had so many difficulties with MuggleNet while posting this story that I'm not sure it's worth the hassle to post here as well. Feel free to check out my other work on FFN, though. Hope to see you there!

I really really enjoyed this chapter a lot. You have effectively separated the two births by the use of humour. A Ron/Hermione fight was completely unexpected at this point, especially since you have portrayed very strong emotions in the two previous chapters.
The ending lines were especially powerful:

A time of change was coming, but change was the only constant, and the only way to survive it was to bend to the prevailing winds. The wind went where it pleased, as children always will, for they are loaned to their parents only a little while. These young souls would travel many long and winding roads before they came to the end of their journey, and if calamity occurred, as it inevitably would, they would deal with it as Potters and Weasleys always had. They would face it together and together they would meet their destiny.

These lines were extremely powerful, and very meaningful too.

Author's Response: Thank you very much. This story was difficult to write, but very rewarding at the same time. I'm really glad you enjoyed it.

er...? 'shapely buttocks'?! Erm... right... you made me feel rather uncomfortable for a sec, there! :P

Author's Response: Sorry about that. But it could have been worse - considering that it's Fred!

Just finished the story and decided that I needed to review again. What a fantastic story! You're an extremely talented writer! The epilogue almost brought tears to my eyes.

Author's Response: I'm really glad you enjoyed it. Thanks so much!

I'm loving this fic so far! I was going to wait till I finish it to review, but I had to comment when I saw the allusion to Farewell to Arms. I'm a huge Hemingway fan and that quote, well... I think it's one of the most profound and honest things ever said, definitely one of my favorite quotes of all time. So thank you thank you thank you for including it in the story, it made it that much better!

I'm also really loving the realism of Harry and Ginny's relationship.Of course we all want them to get their happily-ever-after because they, of all people, deserve it. Yet the way you're writing their marriage seems exactly the way it should be for them. I'm really looking forward to reading the rest!

Author's Response: I've always loved that quote, too. Unlike you, however, I've never been a big Hemingway fan. It may have something to do with the fact that I had a college lit professor who adored the man and forced us to read so much of his stuff that I got sick of it. Also, he was a little 'machismo' for my tastes, but he did have some great lines and that's probably the best of the lot. I'm so glad you liked my portrayal of Harry & Ginny's relationship. I don't think it would have all been happily ever after because, let's face it, what marriage is?

fantasic story it's obvious your a natural writer

Author's Response: I don't know about 'natural' as I struggle a lot with my writing, but I'm glad I make it look easy. Thanks.

I have to say that this is one of the best fics I've ever read....and I've read a lot. It's so creative and well written. Your writing gave me tingles and brought tears to m eyes at some points. Very few authors (especially fanfic authors) have the ability to do that for me.

You must write the sequel to this; it's such an inspired idea.

Well done!

Author's Response: Thanks so much for your review. I'm still not sure about a sequel, but have a few ideas I've been mulling over. We'll see. Appreciate your comments.

OMG!!! I can't believe it's finished!!! You HAVE to do a sequel!!!

Author's Response: I have a few ideas for a sequel, but nothing has quite jelled yet. We'll see, okay? Meanwhile, thanks for your kind words. I appreciate it.
