Sorry about the delay in an update. My beta has just moved out of state, and as a result doesn't have a hole lot of time for editing.
Author's Response: Just put through chapter 6 for approval last night, so that should be coming soon. I also just sent in chapter 7 to my beta, so their should be more coming very soon.
This is an amzing fic and I'm on the edge just waiting to hear more. Pleas update, you'd totally make my day =)
Author's Response: Thanks alot for your enthusiasim. I'm pretty sure i spelt that wrong but whatever, lol. I just posted another chapter, hopefully it will be apporved without issue.
Like I said, JKR never said how Mrs. Weasley turned out, so as fanfic writers, we're technically both right!
Yeah, I can see where you're coming from. I just think that the Battle of Hogwarts may have _finally_ convinced Mrs. Weasley that her children can take care of themselves: perhaps her sheer fury when dueling Bellatrix was of the type where something like "Dammit, you are not ending my daughter's life when I just saw her grow up" was going through her head...or maybe Molly killing Bellatrix was Mrs. Weasley's way of doing her daughter one last motherly favor-sort of going out with a bang, if you will. Losing Fred may have kind of shocked her into some realization, too. I know that if I were in her position, my view would be something like "life is too short, and they should enjoy it while they can". It could go either way-JKR never said which way it went, so as fanfic writers, we are essentially both right.
Author's Response: I see your viewpoint. I also think that Fred dieing however would have the opposite effect, it would make Mrs. Weasley hold on to her children that much more. Speaking from personal expierence, when my brother died my mother seemed to have a vice grip placed over all are lives for a long while. She didn't want anything to happen to us, or for us to grow up to quickly
You know, I think that the whole thing with Mrs. Weasley barging in and such is a bit OOC; she knows perfectly well how her and Arthur started off, and therefore the sheer hypocritical-ness that that whole scene bought upon Mrs. Weasley. Now Ron, I can understand, but if Arthur is the realistic, mature advocate of Harry that I know he is, he probably had a talk with Molly before Harry got there about him and Ginny consummating their love. At least, that's what I'm planning.
Author's Response: Honestly, I beleive that Mrs. Weasley is the type of woman who has trouble seeing her kids grow up. Plus it is in human nature to overlook are own past when dealing with a situation in which those you love are involved And although Mr. Weasley may have a diferent stand and may advocate to Mrs. Weasley that she should let up on Harry and Ginny, i think she to strong willed to heed anyones opinion but her own.
