She told off Umbridge!!!! I like her even more now.
Author's Response: Who wouldn't want to tell off Umbridge? :) I'm thrilled to hear back from you again. Happy Reading! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
1)Albus, will you ever learn to not meddle.
2)OH MY ROWLING HE'S NOT NOCTURNAL!!
and #)"Now get out." Hahahahahahahahah
Author's Response: Hello! I'm glad that you found Snape's bluntness to be amusing. Thanks for the review and I hope that you continue to enjoy the story! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Oooh finally the battle. I can't wait!
Author's Response: Hello! I hope that the next chapter exceeds your expectations. Thanks for taking the time to send me a review! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Lucius BETTER hold up to his side of the bargain!!! Or else.... I'll come and throtle him myself!! Wands and hexes be damned!
Let's pretend that Severus does not die in this fic, shall we?? Pretty please?
Author's Response: In the upcoming chapters, you will see whether or not Lucius holds up his end of the bargain, as well as whether Severus bites the dust or not. I'm not giving any hints, except to say that I adore happy endings! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds P.S.- Love that you're going to throttle Lucius if he doesn't help Severus! :)
As usual, I'm madly in love with your story... But, have to point it out... Lucius was fresh-out-of-wand during that first 'private' talk with Severus. Remember he was politely asked to surrender his wand to the Dark Lord to go Harry-hunting??
Other than that, loved the story and how you planned it out. AND that sollution Selwyn or any random stupid Death Eater kidnapping the PREVIOUS professor, when Voldy wanted Celie... Awesome! ^^,
To be honest, I always thought it was a bit fishy that Voldy wanted the Muggle Studies Prof. dead, even with that explanation of her publishing on the Daily Prophet. Your thesis is far more believable! Poor Charity, though. Anyway, gone read some more!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for your glowing review! :) I am absolutely thrilled that someone is liking what I'm writing! Also, I am quite humbled that you found the Charity/Celie switch so believable. That part made sense to me and I'm mega-relieved that it made sense to someone else, too. Finally, congratulations on catching my little slip-up about Lucius and his wand ~ you have sharp eyes and are absolutely right. I hope that mistake didn't ruin your enjoyment of the chapter. Thanks for sending me some feedback! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh!! post post post!! AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!! As always you leave me wanting more!!!
Author's Response: You have such wonderful enthusiasm for the story! :) Don't have a heart attack on me now! The next chapter is coming soon! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
A very short review, huh?
Author's Response: It may be short, but it was definitely sweet. Thanks for taking the time to let me know that you are enjoying the story! :) Hope you like the next chapter! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
So very excited you updated! I love it! I hope Snape finds a way to contact her soon! Poor Charity! Somehow I missed this updated chapter so I'm thrilled to go to the next chapter!!
Author's Response: Hello! I'm sorry that you missed this update, but every time my new chapter is posted, a flurry of other stories get posted, which leads to my story being buried at the bottom of the Most Recent page. Oh well. :) I'm real relieved to hear from you again - I thought that you'd dropped the story. Thank you for being such a loyal follower of the story and I hope that you enjoy the next chapter! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Amazing. Can't wait to see what the next chapter is like.
Author's Response: Hello again, hpgploversforever! You are such a sweet reviewer! :) Thank you for your support and I hope that you enjoy the next chapter. Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
It's a brillant story so far. I can't wait to read the rest!
Author's Response: Wow! Thank you for the fantastic compliment! :) The next chapter is on the way and I hope that you continue to enjoy the story. Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Anothr great chapter. Can't wait to see what else you come up with in the future.
Author's Response: Thanks for letting me know your thoughts about the story! :) I hope that you enjoy the surprises that I've got in the future chapters! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I was wondering when someone would take advantage of Severus’ words in PS that he could teach students how to “put a stopper in death”. That is the back-up plan he’s worked out to guarantee his continuing good health, isn’t it? It also gladdens me that his plotting with Lucius behind the scenes means that your story won’t end in total tragedy for Celie’s marriage. Always thought that as self-serving as Slytherins were supposed to be, it didn’t follow that they would play the tragic hero and sacrifice themselves in battle “for the greater good.” Lending someone their support and dying for them would be two very different things for a true Slytherin. Why, they’d be more likely to want to sit the conflict out and then align themselves with the victor – thus increase their own chances for survival. You’ve done a great job in capturing that innate contradiction that was never really touched up in canon. Loved the way you were able to work the murder of Charity instead of Celia into your narrative; great twist and very believable.
Author's Response: Hello again, LA Moody! :) Unfortunately, I can't tell you the ending to the story, but I will say that you are on the right track. I, too, was surprised that J.K. didn't make Severus more conniving, in regards to his role in the final battle...he survived for 17 dangerous years and I personally thought that he'd put up a bit more resistance to his own death. Thank you for the wonderful compliment at the end of your review- I was very pleased with the Charity Burbage scene and I hope that it added a bit of suspense for the readers. Thanks for continuing to read and review! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
This is the first AU story I've read that I can find plausible. I've thoroughly enjoyed reading this story and can't wait to see what happens after Ch. 28.
I also enjoy your disclaimers - very clever.
Author's Response: Hello! Thank you for the wonderful compliment- that you find my story 'plausible,' despite its AU warning! :) I'm so happy that you are enjoying the story and I hope that you continue to like the upcoming chapters. Also, thanks for commenting on my disclaimers. You are the first to mention them! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
If they don't live happily ever after once all this is over, I simply will not be able to function.
Author's Response: :) Stay tuned and you'll see if everything turns out the way you'd like it to. Thanks for the review! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Oh no! Im on pins and needles! I can't wait for your next update!! Poor Celie! Poor Snape!!
Author's Response: Dear nevilleherosnape: I'm sorry about the nerve-wracking cliffhanger, but it just seemed like the logical place to end this chapter. Thanks for continuing to read and review my story. I really appreciate hearing from you! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Yarg. I saw you were on Mugglenet at the exact same time i was, and I freaked out. Huh. I really hope you were updating the story or something...(wink).
Author's Response: How interesting that we crossed paths in cyberspace! :) I was probably just checking to see if the moderators had approved the latest chapter. Hope you enjoy it when you finally get a chance to read it! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Another installment of my favorite story!! Please, more and soon! (I still get a stupid grin on my face every time I read a private moment between Celie and Severus -- he deserves so much happiness, and your Celie seems to give it to him. And I'm not jealous of her!) (Well, maybe just a little...)
Author's Response: Wow...I feel really honored that my story is your favorite story! :) Thank you for sending me a review to let me know. It really made my day! :) I hope that the next chapter doesn't disappoint. Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I can't wait for the next chapter. You are a terrific author and you have me hanging on your every word.
Author's Response: Wow! Thank you for such a sweet compliment! :) I appreciate your taking the time to send me a review. I hope that you enjoy the next chapter, which should be validated soon. Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
This continues to be excellent! I'm looking forward to the next chapter.
And I am very curious as to how you're going to ave Celie escape the fate of the Muggle Studies teacher in the beginning of DH...
Author's Response: I'm glad to hear from you again! Thanks for being such a loyal reader and reviewer! :) I hope that the next chapter doesn't disappoint! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
OMG!!!!! im loving this story!do u know wat i would do? i would have celie get pregnant. hope this helps! :):)
