Hey, this isn't much of a review but more of a comment to you.
You MUST write a sequal! This story was brilliant and so inkeeping with JKR's original story that it almost led me to believe that Jo herself wrote it. Truly brilliant and full of comedy. Look forward to more of your writings in future!
Loads of love & good luck with the SEQUAL,
Author's Response: Trust me, I'm not Jo. If I was, I'd be a lot richer. Thanks so much for your very kind words. I really appreciate them.
Congratulations one a very good story, this was the best I've ever read! I hope Albus' story gets told, I for one can't wait!
Author's Response: With any luck, my Muse will cooperate and you won't have to wait too long. Thanks so much for your very kind words.
Very good! The best fan fic I have read so far! You have really captured the essence of the characters. I look forward to a sequel.
Author's Response: Thanks very much. It's very rewarding to read comments like yours and the best motivation to keep going. Take care!
Aw, what a lovely ending. I really hope you have enough inspiration for a sequel. And I love all the thought you put into the little details of your story. Great Job!
Author's Response: Thank you! The details are what makes it fun for me. This was a tough one to write, but very rewarding in its own way. Your comments are appreciated.
Wonderful ending. I love your writing and I look forward to reading more of it in the future.
Author's Response: Thank you! Don't know when (or if) I'll be writing again, but I really appreciate your comments. It's greatly appreciated.
*sigh* What a lovely, beautifully written story. I adore your writing and can't compliment it enough...lol. Thanks for this little insight into Albus' life as a kid, and I'm still fangirling the notion of you writing a sequel!
I really liked the little twist you threw in, that Rose Cottage didn't really exist or was like Brigadoon, it was very interesting and I thought it was lovely the way it brought the story full circle with it's mystery and all.
Anyway, you did such a great job with this, as you did with The Letter, and I can't wait to see more!
Author's Response: Gosh, you'll make me blush! Lol! Thanks awfully, and for the fangirl plug for a sequel as well. I haven't decided quite what to do yet, but I'm sure it'll come to me in time. I'm very glad you enjoyed it. Your comments are greatly appreciated.
I love this story so much I cannot even express it in words! I do want a sequel, but please, please, please write a story about Teddy and Victoire! I liked the little bit you had about them at the end, but I adore your writing so much, I really think you should do them the justice of a full blown piece. I can't wait to see what you write next!
Author's Response: I have no idea what I'm going to write next at this point, but I will give your suggestion some consideration. Thanks for your kind words. Your comments, as always, are deeply appreciated.
wonderful story, i think a sequel would be fantastic but only if you want to. this is one of my all time favorite stories, thanks for witing it.
Author's Response: Thank you, I'm very glad you enjoyed it. I wish I could say I enjoyed writing it, but it's been kind of a long, hard slog. It has been very rewarding, however, not least because of lovely reviews from readers such as yourself, so I do thank you.
I adore this story, it's probably going to stick in my mind as the official sequel to the HP series, are you sure you're not JKR? This epilogue really rounded the whole thing off well, I mean there are a few mysteries left, just incase there's room for a sequel, there were bits and pieces of humour, touching moments that really showed Harry and Ginny's characters off to their fullest, and the prospect of a Weasley family quidditch game. Oh, I feel so warm and happy inside after reading this. Thanks for an amazing journey, you're staying on my favourites as i couldn't bare to part with this story and if at some point you do write a sequel i'll be notified.
Author's Response: Lol! Yes, I am QUITE sure I'm not JKR. If I was, I'd be a lot richer, believe me! Also, she and I have our differences on certain pairings, etc., so that's that. I'm really glad you enjoyed my version, though. It's quite a nice escape, to lose myself in this world and just icing on the cake to realize that I can provide that experience for others as well. Thanks very much!
It's over! *sob*
I just have to say that this is one of the few fics I would get genuinely excited about seeing an email for in my inbox.
I thought you kept the twists and turns up right until the end and you had me completely hooked.
I loved this line:
If you kept going, sooner or later you’d end up somewhere, and perhaps the destination wasn’t all that important. It was the journey that mattered,
I just though that was such a wonderful way to conclude and sum up everything that's happened in the fic.
I adore your writing style and look forward to whatever you write next. Obviously a sequel to this would be wonderful but I'm a great believer in not forcing plots that don't want to be forced so wait and see where your inspiration takes you.
Plus, 26 chapters since January, you did such a great job of keeping this going and not letting it become stagnant. One thing I hate is having to go back and read an entire chaptered fic because I've forgotten what happened in the break. I never had to do this with this one because your updates always came at a good pace.
Anyway, that's all I have to say I think, except keep writing and I hope you're proud of yourself for finishing this.
Author's Response: Thanks so very much! I have to admit, I am rather relieved to be done with this one. It was quite a trying experience all the way around, but after a bit of a break, I'm sure I'll start to feel homesick for this world and be ready to delve back into it, in one fashion or another. I'm actually very surprised (and flattered) that you considered my updates to be timely, as I felt it took me forever. 'The Letter' was written in a little over a month, so I suppose I'm comparing it to that one, but this story was a good deal more complex and my personal life was a bit more harried during the writing process as well. At any rate, I'm so very glad you enjoyed it and I'll look forward to hearing from you again when I get back into the groove of things once more.
me again!, haha sorry i just forgot to say i would favorite this but it still not working so i just thought i'd say it is one of my fav but i just can't get it to work!
Author's Response: No worries. The site's been having problems, but you may be able to go back and favorite it later. Thanks!
i'm sad now. it was such a good story i'm very sad to see it ended. i'm going to miss looking for updates on this story. i can't wait to read more of your stuff your a great writer.
about this chapter it was amazing. it had everything a little sad, happyness, mistery. no one can ask for more then that in a last chapter. i think you did a great job carrying on the stroy. and if i were J.K i would be damn well proud that some one as talatent as you spent time carrying on some writing for her amazing book . you difently did it justice. and i'm not just saying that. i am hard to please when it comes to harry potter fan fic's but you defiantly pleased me with this so great job.
Author's Response: Sorry you're sad, but glad you enjoyed the story so much. It was quite a difficult journey, but there is a definite feeling of accomplishment at having finally finished it. I'm sure I will return to this world eventually. It's rather addictive, especially with the reward of wonderful reviews like yours. Thanks!
Thank you for a wonderful story. I'm quite content not to have all my questions answered, especially if it means there might be a sequel one day (no pressure)!
Author's Response: I have some ideas for a sequel, just have to let them "jell" a bit. Hopefully it'll all come together soon. Thanks so much!
completely and emotionally brilliant cant say anymore than that.
Author's Response: Thank you. Your kind words are deeply appreciated.
Oh, please, don't make us wait too long for the sequel!
Author's Response: I'll try not to. Thanks!
This story is wonderful, I enjoyed it from beginning to end. Every single chapter had something in it that made it worth reading and re-reading. Great job!
Author's Response: Thanks! There's one more chapter yet to come. It's been posted and approved, just waiting for it to show up on the board at the moment.
This is so sweet!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm pleased you enjoyed it.
This was hilarious!
Author's Response: Thanks! Glad I gave you a laugh.
hey.. when r u posting the epilogue???
Author's Response: Hi! Sorry for the delay. I've been really sick the past couple of weeks, but I'm nearly finished with the Epilogue and expect to be posting it within the next day or two. Today is Sunday (July 20) so hopefully tomorrow or the next day.
This is truly the best story I have read in a long time.
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I really appreciate it.
