Wonderful story. Heartwarming. I could very easily picture Harry and Ginny with their children and grandchildren. I could also picture them celebrating with Ron and Hermione and their children and grandchildren.
Author's Response: Thank you for the nice review. Yes, they could also celebrate with Ron and Hermione, but with three children and several grandchildren of their own I think it's enough excitement for them; they're not the youngest anymore. ;)
*is almost crying*
Oh...it's so beautiful, Bine.
Author's Response: Awww, thank you. *hugs*
Aww, that was a really nice story! I especially liked how you made the childrens' speech a bit more childish--it made me smile, and I thought the song quotes made it even better and fit perfectly. I only have one nitpick. You were talking about the fire and said "slowing dying fire" I think, and it should be "slolwy dying" I think. :) Well done!
Author's Response: Really? Did I? *makes note to look into that matter*
But thank you so much for the review, Mapoi. *hugs*
I thought I would give you an review before I go to sleep. As you already know I think this a great Christmas story, and you made me smile and I really felt I was there. Also I liked the flashback about one of Harrys' Christmas. It was good. You are great at writing.
I wish you a very Christmas.
Author's Response: Thank you so much, Tatty! *squishes* Merry Christmas to you, too. :)
*sniff* great next-gen story! :-)
Author's Response: Thank you for the nice review. :)
OH! OH! OH! I get to marry James SIRIUS Potter! YES!
Seriously, Bine, this is a lovely story. I was reading it and smiling all the way through and then you snuck in a mention of the Dursleys and I started to feel all sad. I adored your house-elf and these lines stuck out particularly.
I turned around, facing the small creature. Her big pale eyes reminded me of Kreacher, but her dressing style was very similar to Dobby’s; right now, she was wearing an old skirt of Lily’s, its colour not at all matching the bright green shirt she was dressed in and which had been a Christmas present to her from Ginny years back already. She loved the cloth to pieces and cared for it with a dedication that was only surpassed by the love and care she had shown towards our children.
Weeny nit-pick (and I feel very scrooge-like for saying this)
br> ‘The Healer forbid travelling at all if her condition doesn’t change.’ I think that should be forbade.
This is a great Christmas present but I do hope my feckless husband saves some of that Pinot Noir for me!
Author's Response: *gigglesnortygiggle* I'm glad you like it. :) And no, it's not scrooge-like for you to nitpick. Thank you for the lovely review. Merry Christmas.
