You both broke my heart and mended it with the Dobby portrait.

Author's Response: Hello Allovimo, so glad your heart is on the mend! It seemed only fair to give good old Dobby a portrait - he deserves to be in Harry's life for a lot longer, even if it is only as an oil on canvas ... *sniffles* Thanks for R & R-ing, Kara's Aunty ;)

Hello Rislans88,


Thank you! I'm so happy you enjoyed it. Poor Harry deserved a proper family and Christmas seemed as good a time as any to make sure he finally got it!

Thanks for R & R-ing,

Wow, Maureen!

This was so beautiful. You had me crying again at office. *glares*

I wish I could say more, but…what is there to say except that I loved everything about it?

Merry Christmas!


Author's Response:

Hellooo Natalie!

Oh dear. This made you cry, too? Dear, oh dear. I had no idea this would reduce so many people to tears! Still, at least they were tears of (hopefully) happiness. I shudder to think I'd make readers miserable at THIS (or any) time of year.


I'm so very happy you approved of the way the fic portrayed Harry and Molly's familial declarations to each other. I didn't want to make it too sad. Or intoduce too much humour (that may have not been appropriate for this particular fic), come to think of it - the subject matter and time period in which the fic was set (so soon after Fred's death) needed a bit more gravity than slapstick would have given it.

Thanks for supporting me with such a lovely review, m'dear. You're a wee (Christmas) star :)

All the very best to you and yours over the Christmas season,

Maureen :o)

great job!!

Hello JustLikeHermione77,


Delighted you enjoyed the sugar shot! Harry and Molly have certainly been through the wringer together and it seemed high time they made their mother/son relationship with each other a bit more official. Thanks for your lovely words of support for the fic. 

Merry Christmas to you, m'dear & thanks for R & R-ing,

Kara's Aunty :)

It was absolutely beautiful and touching. Thanks for writing such a great story.

Author's Response:

Hello ILoveHarry 3_14,

You're more than welcome, m'dear! The dynamics between Harry and Molly have always fascinated me - I've been dying to see them finally admit to each other that they're mother and son in all but blood. Lily would find great comfort in knowing that a woman as caring and so completely competent as Molly was taking such good care of her child. 

I'm really glad you enjoyed this fic so much. Thanks for R & R-ing, and have a very merry Christmas!

crying at work while I am reading this - absolutely one of the best fanfics I have ever read. And you got Harry perfect. Merry Christmas!

Author's Response:

Hello decdraft,

wow! Pleased as punch that you liked it so much (although, I do hope you didn't cry TOO much)!

I've often wondered if Harry finally bit the bullet & started to call Molly 'Mum'. This was just the way I imagined the inevitable event may have occured. She has certainly been a wonderful mother figure to him ever since they first met - she's the kind of mother most people would love to have (especially is she could do magic too...).

 And what a beautiful compliment, to say it was among the best you've read. I am truly, truly flattered and hope I can live up to such high esteem with future fics.

Thanks very much for R & R-ing and a very merry Christmas to you and yours!

Kara's Aunty :)

this was soooooooooooooo good it made me cry

Author's Response:

Hello amberleaf,

my, I'm delighted you think so - and I hope it didn't make you weep too much! It seemed to be about time that Harry started calling her 'Mum' - she's been the omly one he's known since Lily was killed and I think Lily would definitely have approved after all Molly (and all the Weasley's) has done for him!

Thanks for R & R-ing and I'd like to wish you & yours a very merry Christmas,

M :)
