Chapter: Sleepless Night

You describe all of these things so well. You've brought back many happy memories of when my children were younger. It took me a while to figure out how you wind a baby. At first I didn't read it as wind, as in the wind blew the leaves around. I read it as wind as in I had to wind my old watch. The latter certainly didn't make sense. Really enjoyed this story.

Author's Response: This one is written from life. Wind is the work used in the UK, is there a US alternative? -N-

Very cute, I love it. You must have experienced it yourself through siblings or something to write in such detail. Congrats on an amazing mini series!

Author's Response: Siblings? You should consider the possibility that I'm writing from my experience as a father. :-D -N-

A breastfeeding fic! I am in love! This takes me back to my daughter's early days when I probably sounded a bit like Ginny and my husband patiently took care of her before and after nighttime feeds and patiently walked the hall with her. Thanks for that.

Author's Response:
Yes! It actually surprised me when I wrote it. Considering the subject matter, this is a surprisingly popular story.
It’s written from experience, except I had to walk up and down the stairs, it was the only thing that worked.

I am a little embarrassed to say that this is the fanfiction that told me you are a guy. I usually reserve judgement but I failed while reading all your other fiction. I came back to read this again and remembered my epiphany.

Author's Response: It was this one? Fair enough, this, and First Sight are probably giveaways, although having said that, I suspect thar The Question is a giveaway, too. -N-

Author's Response: Thank you. James is only a little over two years old in this. -N-

You make me, cynical and fearful of babies, want to have children, ha!
You are such an exceptional writer, with an amazing talent for creating dynamic characters that one can connect with. This is especially difficult because you're working with pre-existing character created by Jo, but I adore your characterizations of Harry and Ginny. They are so close to how they are in the books, but realistic as they are now new people after wards.
I really commend your writing, both your voice, imagination and the more technical aspects and grammar. I have not come across a single story penned by your hand that I have not enjoyed, keep it up!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review, and compliments.
I try to keep harry and Ginny in character, and true to the epilogue (which, in my opinion, shows a lot about their marriage and parenting style in very few words and shows how great a writer JKR is). I know that I’m not the daft teen I once was (sorry daft teens everywhere but we all grow up eventually) and I try to mature Harry and Ginny in a logical way; Ron less so :-)
Of all my “family” stories (It Takes Two, E.C.C.E.N.T.R.I.C., First Sight, this, Beard Hunters and Ginny’s Rival) this is by far the most read and reviewed. I’ve no idea why it’s so popular. My long suffering betas (all of them) deserve credit for correcting my commas etc. over the years.

Loved loved this one. Daddy Harry is amazing. Mommy Ginny is disgruntled, but I am sure most women get like that! The descriptions of the kids is accurate. I read in one of your reviews that you are a father and it shows. Lovely stories! Is there one where Lilyloo is born? :) I'd like to know how Harry felt when his first daughter was born.

Author's Response: Thanks again. Daddy Harry is used to doing strange things in the middle of the night. He's been doing it since he was eleven! :-D Ginny is smply having a bad night. It happens. The Lily story is written, too, and in it Ginny is even more disgruntled. -N-

I promise you that "precious" is not meant to be an insult! :) I really did love the story, and I don't think you are unusual in how you feel about your family. Two of my three brothers are married and they act the exact same way about their little ones! :)

Author's Response: Thanks, I was certain it wasn't. :-D One of my workmates claims to be entirely disinterested in his kids. He's never changed them, or bathed them, or anything. He thinks I'm strange. -N-

What a precious story! It is so intimate and sweet how Harry sees his growing family and wife. And the part about Harry's conversation with Ron at the pub was just priceless! I don't have children of my own yet, so I can't relate fully, but I hope that my husband thinks about me and our children the same way Harry does his. Just a beautifully written story overall! :)

Author's Response: Thanks (I think In my part of the UK precious is often used as an insult. It means over-fastidious, pretending to be something it isnt. Im certain thats not what you meant, but speech-differences fascinate me. :-D )
This (along with It Takes Two, First Sight and the just-about-to-be-submitted Ginnys Rival) make up a series of Potter family stories. Harrys experience of fatherhood is embarrassingly close to my own, and a close friend of mine (a fellow-father who will remain nameless) would recognise most of that pub conversation. Am I unusual? I have no idea.

this is my favorite story. I love it so much. It is so cute cute. The whole thing is just amazing. I have spent like nine hours trying to find this fic so i could read it again and put it on favorites. It is just perfect and cute and awesome. I love Ron and Rosie (i am a daddy's girl and i just think it is the cutest thing when dads love their baby daughters). This fic is completely adorable and i hoe to read more from u.

Author's Response:
Thanks for the review.

This is certainly one of my fluffier stories. I often tell reviewers that this is the third of three Potter Family tales, the others are It Takes Two and First Sight. I hesitate to advertise, but if you liked this, you might like Strangers at Drakeshaugh, too.

Awww!! That is so cute!! I love this story and would love to read more. The only part i don't like is how Harry feels with Ginny in that way...but its just me. Good story!!!

Author's Response: As i've already said, this is the third in a loose trilogy of family stories. The others being "It Takes Two" and "First Sight" there may be more, but not for a while. Harry is a man and we all have desires which may seem a little ... odd. The Ron/Harry pub conversation is based on one I had with a friend, sorry. N

That was just beautiful. Raw, artistic honesty.

There was a strong truth to character throughout - all development in mental attitude was clearly explained and totally plausible.

Incredible, I think for the first time in my reviewing life, I don't think I can find any concrit. That really was the ideal balance of internal reflection and action.

Also, I can safely say there's not a woman in the country wouldn't dream for a husband like that!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I'm glad that you enjoyed the story. Harry the ideal husband? I thought that he was just being Harry the doting dad. Certainly he wasn't doing anything unusual, in my experience. N

I liked this story because I loved the way it was simple. Harry's life is usually portrayed as chaotic, sometimes with a lot of drama...He's usually in the middle of something heroic, or in some kind of crisis. This fiction one was perfect because it seemed like a normal night, with nothing crazy. His experience is something I could imagine happening to anyone...It was just average, and it was refreshing to read a story like that. Good job!

Author's Response: Harry was portrayed as a good dad in the epilogue, comforting a nervous Al. Im sure that his life will be chaotic (three kids!) and sometimes dramatic. But Id hope that by eight years after the battle hed be able to relax occasionally. Of course in this story hes not relaxing. N
