Chapter: Chapter 25: There Be Dragons

What can I say, amazing just doesnt seem to be enough, this story has made me realise alot of things, and I am happy now in myself. I know now, that it takes time, thankyou for bringing back my faith in having children, and I do hope that the sequel you are planning is as good as this.

Author's Response: I'm glad the story has helped you and 'brought back your faith' as you say. I do wish you the best in your own personal quest, and feel sure that whatever happens you will make the best of it. God bless!

That was sooooo good...Again... i wish i could write half as well as you:D

Author's Response: I'm sure you can write very well. It's a matter of practice, I think. Just keep at it and eventually it'll look and sound the way you want it. Thanks for your comments.

it was such a good chapter. Loved the classic Hermione Ron fight. The canary part was ingenious. hope you update soon

Author's Response: Ron & Hermione had been way too lovey-dovey in the story, so I knew I had to create an explosion sooner or later. Glad you liked it. I'll try to update soon.

Chapter: Chapter 24: All Through the Night

Oh, that was nice, and I'm looking forward to reading about little Rose's birth and your epiloge. Poor Meghan, I hope we find her successfully starting a family in a future story, sadly, her pain and sorrow is not unfamiliar to some of us readers out here. Are you thinking of writing another story, focusing on the other 2 of Albus' challenges? While I wait for chapter 25, do you have any suggestions for reading material? i've read your "favorites" - and don't want to suffer withdrawals. Thanks for sharing your talents with us, I hope you enjoy writing as much as I enjoy reading what you create.

Author's Response: I have other favorites, but unfortunately they're not on this site. If you check out my home page on (web address is: you can click on my favorite authors and stories there and I think you'll find a few gems. I particularly recommend anything by little0bird, Bad Mum, MBP, and loveadubdub. They're all excellent. I have no firm plans to write anything else (Harry Potter-wise at any rate) at this time, but I do enjoy writing these stories and I'm sure the bug will bite me again eventually. Thanks for your comments.

Chapter: Chapter 19: House-Elves and Hormones

Back labor! I remember that! Am I right? Oh, and while I'm at it, is Lucius really Harry on polyjuice? He kept on swigging from his little bottle, makes me wonder. Oh, you and your cliff-hangers! You are being delightfully evil. I will probably catch up to chapter 24 by tomorrow (I'm on vacation so between the garden, a humane society bake sale and the window washing, I'm finding - no, making (!) time to read). I'll say it now, can't wait for your next installment (incentive?).

Author's Response: Mmmm. . . Well, I can't answer your question without spoiling the surprise, so I just won't. As for back labor, yeah, that was fairlyh obvious. I am close to completing the next chapter, and hopefully will be able to get it posted soon. Thanks so much!

Chapter: Chapter 11: Nargles in the Mistletoe

I've read many of the stories submitted by fans but your story is perhaps the only one that, in my opinion, closely approximates the continuation of the theme of Rowlings and where she left off. I continue to pace myself on reading your story so as to not get a head of you and be without something to look 4ward to.

Author's Response: Thanks for your kind words. I'm fairly close to posting a new chapter, so hopefully your pacing will match mine. Appreciate the review.

Chapter: Chapter 12: Rumors

Just a quick note to tell you how much I'm enjoying this! I just ran upon your work, and of course, I had to read in sequence, so I am a bit behind. Now, off to chapter 13! Keep it up, your characters seem to follow what JKR developed (so nice to "see" the old, cranky Snape rather than some sappy romantic rendition (this from the conversation with his portrait), and I'm hoping that perhaps he will show up in one of the dreams. Wouldn't that be a hoot! You write beautifully, keep it up.

Author's Response: I'm really glad you're enjoying it. I don't care for the fully redeemed Snape either. Leopards rarely change their spots, and the fact that Severus had the ability to love doesn't change the fact that he was also a bullying git. Thanks for the kind words.

hey when r u posting the next chapter?? please make it fast.. cant wait to start reading again..

Author's Response: It should be soon. I've had a lot of interruptions this week, but I'm hoping to get the next chapter wrapped up over the weekend. After that, it'll depend on how fast the mods get it posted.

Chapter: Chapter 1: Wistful Looks

I really love your story! but I do think that your descriptions of the NICU and medical terms are a bit too muggle for the story. But other than that, I LOVE IT!! please post the next chapter soon, i'm waiting to bawl my eyes out over it.

Author's Response: Actually, the next chapter should be fairly light hearted. This is Ron and Hermione we're dealing with, and they couldn't have a baby without a certain amount of chaos, now could they? I'm glad you like it. Thanks!

Chapter: Chapter 24: All Through the Night

What a heart-wrenching chapter! Is it from personal experience? It also took me back to a time when I felt like a complete frump after having a baby, and suddenly felt that the world was a far more treacherous place. I looked down at my day-old son and thought "Oh no... he's going to want a car one day...."

Author's Response: Not from my own personal experience, but I've had family and friends who have been through it and I did do a bit of research about preemies. I am a mother, though, and I, too, recall that "frumpy" feeling. I also remember that awesome, terrifying feeling of being solely responsible for a helpless, fragile life (all infants are fragile) and wondering if I could possibly manage it. Of course being hormonal on top of all that doesn't help much. Thanks for your comments.

Ilithyia Giatros? are you from Greece? you are funny!

Author's Response: No, I'm not Greek, but I have studied Greek mythology and I looked up the Greek word for 'physician.' Thanks for reviewing.

Chapter: Chapter 24: All Through the Night

aww how cute. I have tp say htough i feel bad for James it seems that Albus is going to be more important, and i felt sad when he was upset when Ginny left

Author's Response: I don't think Albus will be more important, it's just that his needs are greater at that particular moment. Parents have to make those kinds of choices sometimes. It's always difficult and sometimes their judgment isn't perfect, but most of them do the very best they can. In my universe, Ginny loves all of her children equally. In different ways, to be sure, but her love for James is no less than her love for Albus. Thanks for reviewing.

i read this on another website (i forget what it is but you might know) and i thought it was one of the best and sadest chapters. i felt soooooooo awful for phil adn meghan...but it was amazing nonetheless:D

Author's Response: It would either have been or SIYE, as those are the only other sites I'm posted on. Actually, Phil was Meghan's father-in-law. Her husband's name was Geoff. But thanks anyway. I appreciate it.
