Aaaah!!! I love the way you merge the stories!!! You've kept me glued to the screen!!
I really like the way you write.
Keep it up please! And congratulations to you!
Author's Response: Gee, I'm blushing! :) Thanks for sticking with the story and sending me a review. I appreciate all your wonderful compliments and I'm so happy that you are enjoying the story. I'm particularly touched that my story is keeping you 'glued to the screen!' That's the best compliment a writer can receive!! :) Anyways, thanks so much for your support and I hope you like the next chapter! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Love it! You do a great job of sustaining dramatic tension.
Author's Response: Hello again! I'm thrilled to hear that you are still enjoying the story! :) Thank you for the review and I hope that you like the upcoming chapters. (There will be lots more tension for poor Celie and Severus.) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
That was certainly under the belt! Poor Severus!! Booooo!!!
On a brighter note... don't think I have not noticed all that potion brewing... I have a real good feeling about it.
I certainly hope next chapter is happier, both for Celie and for Severus... He deserves something positive in his life right?
Author's Response: It's nice to hear from you again, Kaiserin! How clever of you to notice Snape's summer brewing activities...you'll just have to wait and see how everything plays out (no hints from me!). Unfortunately, Celie and Severus will be experiencing some tough times, so don't expect a whole lot of happiness for them. I agree with you that they both deserve a break, but they aren't going to get it. Thanks for the review and I hope you enjoy the next installment! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Oh dear! No matter which way he turns he's got some 'splain'in to do!! Thank you so much got updating!
Author's Response: Isn't that the truth! Poor Severus...he's got a lot to worry about. Thanks for the review! More chapters are on the way! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
totally awesome!!!!!!!!!!! great job and keep writing!
Author's Response: Hello again, nevillesgirl28! I'm so happy to hear that you are still enjoying the story! :) Don't worry, more chapters are coming soon! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I think this is one of my favorite chapters so far, it was very well written and i was impressed with how well you incorporated celie into the existing OOTP plot. I really liked the part where Snape looked impressed at Harry using the Cruciatus Curse. and i especially LOVE the way Snape told Dumbledore about his marriage...choking on a lemondrop...hilarious :) update again soon!
Author's Response: I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed this chapter so much! :) I really had fun writing it and I was so excited to finally see it approved and posted. Thank you for your many compliments. It's always a relief to hear that one of my readers feel that Celie is "fitting" into the established OOTP plot; I especially had fun incorporating her into the scene at the Ministry of Magic. Also, you are the second person to comment on the lemon drop quote...I'm thrilled that it was such a hit! Anyways, thanks for being a loyal reader and reviewer! I appreciate you taking the time to write to me! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
so awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! luv it :)
Author's Response: Hello again! Thank you for writing my 100th review! :) To show my appreciation, I've commissioned Hedwig to bring you a gift certificate to Flourish and Blotts and an extra large box of Chocolate Frogs! :) Thanks for reading and reviewing! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
pretty good.i totally agree on the ratfink but i would have put bloody prat instead
Author's Response: That's a good suggestion; maybe Celie will use that term to refer to Pettigrew next time. Thanks for the review! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
awesome so far! :) keep it up!
Author's Response: Hello! I'm glad to see that you've recently found the story and that you're liking it! :) Thanks for the review! Happy Reading! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Oh, dear... Harry, Harry... Poor fellah.
Anyhow, the idea of Albus chocking to death with a lemon drop IS quite funny!!
I wonder if Voldemort ever fantasizes with it! LOL!
Author's Response: Poor Harry, indeed. That boy has a tough childhood...as if high school isn't hard enough without fighting Death Eaters as well! :) I'm glad that you found my lemon drop quote humorous...it's always refreshing to know that others share my sense of humor. As always, thanks for the review! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I love it!!!! Can't wait for more!
Author's Response: You're still reading the story! (YEAH!) You're still liking the story! (Double YEAH!) You're still reviewing the story! (Triple YEAH!) :) Thanks for sticking with me! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Wonderful as always!! I read each chapter with a smile growing bigger and bigger on my face -- happy for Celie, deliriously happy for Severus, and just sooooo happy with the whole story.
More more more!!!
Author's Response: Hello again, SadiraSnape! It's nice to hear from you again! :) I'm happy to see that you are still reading and enjoying the story. Don't worry, more chapters are on the way! Thanks for the kind review! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
lovely lovely lovely
Author's Response: Hello again! Thank you for the complimentary review and I'm glad to see that you are still reading the story! :) I hope that you continue to enjoy the upcoming chapters. Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I'm falling in love with this story and it's characters. You are an amazing author. I can't wait for the next chapter.
Author's Response: Hello! I'm so happy to hear that you are enjoying the story! :) Thank you for the amazing compliments! I hope that you like the upcoming chapters. Happy Reading! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Fantastic, as always!
I'll be curious to see how, if at all, the events at the Ministry change in your telling...
Author's Response: It's great to hear from you again! :) Thank you for being such a loyal reader and reviewer. I hope that you continue to enjoy the story. Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
IM PRE SIO NAN TE!!!
You'r writing has finished my short supply of positive adjetives in English, so I had to resort to Spanish to properly address it. ^^, (means impressive, BTW) Really, loved all the comings and goings And poor desperately in love Celie... Severus was being quite prat in this chapter, especially during the exam! I would have given him a bit of a harder time. Let him simmer like Polijuice potion for a month or two! LOL!
The "The Boy Who Lived To Annoy The Bloody Hell Out Of Me" line was HILARIOUS. Really, gotta love Severus' mind and antics the way you portray them. ^^,
I liked the fact that Harry came to Celie with this matter. It really made a lot of sense that he needed someone to talk about, that was not biased (at least to his knowledge) and it also provided the perfect oportunity for Celie to "put two plus two" as you so intelligently put it. These are the kind of tiny little unexpected details that JKR inserts that turn everything upside down at the very ending of the books! Those details that send me whooping as I get to read them. ^^,
Biting my finger nails about next chapter! The dread!! :*
Author's Response: Thank you, Kaiserin, for another lengthy and complimentary review! :) I'm thrilled that you are still liking the story and thanks for being such a loyal reader and reviewer! I'm glad that you are enjoying Snape's inner thoughts and comments...I'm having a blast writing his character! After reading the books, I honestly felt cheated because they contained so few parts with Snape. He is such an unusual and snarky character that, if I had created him, I would have given him a much more visible role in the books. In addition, I'm happy to hear that the way in which I had Celie find out about Lily was acceptable...that was a difficult part to write and I'm glad, for Celie and Severus's sakes, that it's over and done with! Hope you like the next chapter. Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Brilliant! Wow! Love it!
Author's Response: Yeah, another complimentary review from nevilleherosnape! :) Thank you for being such a loyal reader and reviewer. I really enjoy hearing from you after each chapter. I hope that you continue to enjoy the rest of the story! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
OMIGOSH! This chapter was so CUTE!!!! Snape, in my mind, is no longer a greasy git! Although that may have something to do with my BFF running aroung yell at the top of her lungs," SNAMIONE...*Long Pause* ...FORRRRRRRREVER!!!!!!!!" Soon followed by a,"Shut Up! I'm doing my homework!" and a raspberry.
Author's Response: Hello again, AReader! I'm glad that you enjoyed this chapter so much! :) I hope that you enjoy the upcoming chapters! Thanks for the review! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Just know that you have one hell of a happy reviewer out there!
I just wonder... Will sweet Celie ever find out about one Lily Evans and, well... Snape's love for her?
Yay for this marriage of sorts! BIG yay. Like monumental yay! Sorry, I'm not the most eloquent reviewer... I hope the spirit counts. Spirit being I totally love the fic! Celie and Severus are so, lovely, perfect, adorable... I especially relished the fact that they seem to complete each other, to fullfill the other's unspoken needs. They're a bit like Ying and Yang!! ^^,
All right, enough of gushing fangirl mode for the night!
Author's Response: Hello again, Kaiserin! I'm absolutely thrilled that you are enjoying the story this much! :) I, too, am very happy that Celie and Severus were finally able to tie the knot. In answer to your question, you will have to read the next chapter to find out about what happens when Celie learns the truth about Lily. Thanks for the review and I hope you like the upcoming chapters! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Through DH?! Wahoo! For a minute I had entertained that she'd die when Sirius did, but thank goodness much more to come!! I laughed out loud when he didn't know that was the name of the song!! Brilliant!!
Author's Response: Glad to hear back from you again, nevilleherosnape! Yep, I'll be chronicling our couple, in this story, through the end of Deathly Hallows and then, in several sequels. I'm happy to see that you're still reading and reviewing! I hope you enjoy the next chapter! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
