Nice! Did you plan the parallel to Harry's parents being in hiding during Lily's pregnancy? It's neat. I'm still wondering whose baby it is. You've been nicely enigmatic with the timeline. Hermione would have realized if it was too late to be physically possible as Ron's; what's interesting is that she doesn't remember sleeping with Harry, and that wasn't that long after Ron died, was it? Interesting. Are you going to reveal with the birth? And are you going to give them any happiness whatsoever?!
PS. Nice touch with Teddy - I was wondering about him when he suddenly appeared!
Author's Response: I didn't really parallel anything on purpose; it was just the next natural step, with Harry worrying that Yaxley was going to hurt the people he cares about. I'm enjoying how people are fishing for information about whose baby it is. All will be revealed in due time. :D I am planning on a non-miserable ending, but I can't guarantee anything, because my muse does pretty much what she likes. You know how that works.
Wonderful chapter loved it.........
&its Harry's baby when are they gonna come to know that.??
I'm so eager to read more....
pls pls pls pls update sooooooonnnnnnn
Author's Response: Well, I've only got one chapter prepared so far, so I'm going to post that one next week, and hopefully I can get some more written by then. If not... sorry. :D Glad you like it, ~Jess
I really liked this chapter as well. Like the direction you are going with this story.Would love to discuss this more with you without taking up to much space in your "review" section. Is your e-mail listed somewhere?
Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoy the story. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to drop me a line anytime. :D ~Jess
I totally agree with the last review. This story is one that you can really believe may happen. Great job!! Do you have an idea when the updates will come out? I keep checking each day.
Author's Response: I was going to release an update today, but I'm having some last-minute betaing done. I think I might just skim it myself and put it out anyway. I'm glad you like the story. Thanks as always for reading. ~Jess
I love how this is simultaneously canon and non-canon; I can't really enjoy a story unless it's believable, and this definitely is (assuming the epilogue never happened of course (; ). Fantastic job!
(love this pairing. cuuttee)
Author's Response: Thank you muchly. I'm glad you like it and can realistically see it happening. I just don't have the heart for Harmony unless Ron is gone and not portrayed as some beast that Hermione could never love. Update coming VERY soon! Thank you for reading and reviewing. :D ~Jess
The things I liked most was the dynamic change of the relationships between characters. Obviously, there are things that could have been done better, but I enjoyed this story and am glad that I happened across this article
Author's Response: I'm glad you like the character dynamics, because that's what drives the story along. I am curious however, that you would bring up things that could have done better but not actually say what those things are. I would really like to know, if you wouldn't mind. I'm all about improvement. :D ~Jess
What!?!? That's horrible! I did guess it would happen though, at the bit where Hermione was nagging to Harry about her gaining weight, but I didn't think it would happen. You need to update soon!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: Lol, I'm glad I could get your proverbial goat with that. It was always in the stars for this fic, so it was nice that I could mislead you all a bit, hehe. :D Updates are coming soon. Thanks for reading! ~Jess
Looking forward to the next chapter. Great story!
I'm glad you like it. Updates are coming shortly.
oh man. as if she doesn't have enough to deal with. wait, this is Ron's baby, right? that much time hasn't passed since when Harry and Hermione had sex, right?
poor kids can't catch a break. Cannot wait for the next chapter :D
It's a mystery, now isn't it?
Thanks for reading, and enjoy my ebil cliffie!
I didn't think it was possible, but you just made me hate Rita sooo much more. I hope she gets what's coming to her. Poor Harry and Hermione :(
I can't believe George actually gave her an interview, although I can totally see him being so mad that he doesn't care WHO he talks to about it.
Well, consider me happy that i've inspired a good deal of outrage at Rita, but personally, I'm mad at Harry for thinking he could play games of intrigue when we all know he's not that sort of person. It was inevitable, that article, and now the entire wizarding world will think that Harry and Hermione are a thing, which they aren't, but they really are... and now it's all complicated. lol
Thanks for reading. :D
Wow... nice twist! I'm interested to see where this goes :)
I'm glad your interest is piqued. Updates will come soon.
*gasp* I was NOT expecting that! lol
I am loving this so much so far :)
Lol, it is rather a surprise. :D
:( poor Ginny.
Harry, the masochist lol
In only Harry wasn't so darned noble...
ohmygosh, I can't believe you killed ron :(
although it makes the H/Hr so much more believable now. I HATE when writers make Ron into this horrible, hateful character because it's just not who he is. This is much better, although so, so heartbreaking :(
I'm interested to see how this will work out with Ginny in the picture. :)
Well, how that turns out will become pretty apparent fairly soon. Enjoy the story!
Excellent good mix of drama and intrigue.
I'm glad you like it. I'm virtually incapable of writing plotless prose (aka 'regular romance'), so I'm glad it piques your interest on a couple different levels.
Wow... what a great story. You are a very good writer and I can't wait for the next chapter! :)
I'm glad you like the story, and I hope you enjoy further installments, which are coming shortly.
Haha, you get to wait. >:D
Thanks for reading.
So now the question becomes: Ron or Harry? I have my suspicions, so I can't wait to see if I'm right (again)! That was a good twist, but even more than that, I rather liked seeing George in bad-a** mode, and the bit at the house - the papers, the key - really deepened that part of the plot. Your romance stories are so multi-layered, it's amazing. Not to mention the angst. ;) Great chapter, post soon! ~Gina :)
Hehe, I suppose you'll have to wait and see... but no worries. A good chunk of the upcoming chapters are baby-related, but the darkness is coming! You know I couldn't tell you whether you were right or not when we were chatting, though it seemed pretty obvious. If you can forgive my ebilness. :D
Lovely review, and I miiiiisss you, Twin!
Hmmm that was not the reaction I was expecting when they woke up! Removing the memory just seems a too simple solution to a complicated situation. Interested to see what happened next...
Well, if their reaction was what you expected, then there wouldn't be much point in writing the story, would there? :D
Next installment is in the queue and should come out this weekend. Enjoy!
Oh Jess, leave it to you to throw another wrench into the story. Awesome twist with Rita. I am truly frightened for what Harry might do. You are definitely taking him to the edge, it seems. Which places a huge burden on Hermione. But then, that's what you've nailed about their characters: Hermione taking care of Harry. Sure, Harry thinks he might be taking care of her after Ron's death, but he's not. He needs her more than she needs him. What's sad is that the Weasleys would have probably taken care of them both if only they'd been open and honest.
Sorry it's not a spew review, but I just want to let you know I'm still reading and enjoying your writing. Good luck with the next bit - try not to be too hard on Harry, now, k? *yeah right* ;)
Lol, now I feel sort of bad about what happens in the next chapter. Hehe. It's with the betasitter right now, and I shall post it as soon as I get it back. I'm glad you like it and enjoy my screwed up mind.
