Chapter: A Breakdown, a Bike and a Barmy Blonde Again

I’m loving this story, Neil! It has been a refreshing break after reading too many romances lately. All the interactions between the moms waiting for their kids bring back many memories of when my kids were in elementary school. This is such a universal experience no matter what part of the world you live in. And by the way, I could swear that you must have been spying at my school gate. I recognized Scary Mary, the gossipers, and some of the others right away.

Looking forward to more chapters! - Martha

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
I thought that this was a romance (of sorts). It may not be young love in all its angsty uncertainty, but this particular chapter involved a couple going on a date. I’ll admit that (as a schoolgate Dad) I was a little uncertain about this story, but the school gate experience does, after all, seem to be universal. Does every school gate in the world have a “Queen Bee”?
I try to update once a month, that’s pretty much top speed. The next chapter will be another “Interlude” and but in the meanwhile there will be one (possibly two) chapters of Hunters and Prey. That story isn’t very romantic, either.

Chapter: A Breakdown, a Bike and a Barmy Blonde Again

First, I had a Hermione incident on my bike once, she didn't know how to lean and react when turning, or when I popped a wheelie (to scare her a little lol) never again.

Second, I just love how you portray Luna. She's so innocent like. Very well done.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
A bad pillion passenger can be dangerous. Worst (in my experience) is when, after you’ve finally fought the bike into a lean despite her effort to prevent it, she finally decides to lean, too…
Luna is, I hope, like Luna, but it isn’t easy to be certain.

Chapter: A Breakdown, a Bike and a Barmy Blonde Again

When I first read that Jacqui was getting on the back on the motorcycle, I was a little apprehensive. I was almost certain something would go badly; but it all worked out in the end. Mary got a taste of Luna...That was funny to read. I love how Luna is so straightforward and literal.
Looking forward to more Strangers, Aurors and Schoolgirls, and Hunters! :)

Author's Response: Katie, thanks for the review.
Jaqui knew what she was doing, and so did Harry. Bikes aren't that unsafe. Luna is certainly straightfrward.
H&P is being beta read now. A&S isn't, sorry. But I'll try to get back to it soon.

Chapter: The Drop Off

This story just gets better and better.
Luna is always a pleasure. She says all the things we'd love to.
It's great to see Harry happy and enjoying life.

Author's Response: Thank you. :-D
She is and sshe does.
Harry's happiness won't last much longer.

So happy you updated! I love this story so much, it feels like it could be an extension of the series despite it's 100% original. I love it :)

I LOVE LUNA!!!!

And Mary had that coming to her!

Almost party time at the Potters, can't wait.

Seems like meeting the Potters has resparked Mike and Jaqui's marrage or at least love life.

Luna will be sticking around until after the party.
Mike and Jacqui had been in a bit of a rut, hadn't they?

Chapter: Baking Buns and a Barmy Blonde

Just read through this story again while waiting for your next chapter - it's brilliant! I'm a recent discoverer of your work, but I'm a huge fan, and I can't wait for the continuation of this and your other stories.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review and the kind words. This is certainly my most popular story, at least in terms of reviews. You'll be pleased to know that I submitted the next chapter yesterday, so you should not have long to wait. -N-

I love this story! Out of curiosity, do you have a planned number of chapters for Drakeshaugh?

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
When I planned this story, I would have told you it would be 20 or so, now, I'll say 24-39, I think.

Love,love,love,love,love,love,love,love,love,love, love, love, love, love, love,love this!( I love it 1000 more times)
Amazing story, so well written. I like that it's from a muggle's point of view. Are you working on the next chapter of another fic (they all are good)?

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
The next chapter of this story is with my betas and, now that the Great Hall challenge is drawing to a close I'm taking a good look at Hunters and Prey. I need to finish at least one of my chaptered fics.

Next chapter: Luna plus Mary, which equals?

More>? I’ve just submitted three one shots (a Ron/Hermione, a Neville/Hannah, and a George/Angelina) and I have two more planned (Dennis/OC and Millicent/Marcus (don’t ask about that second)), and still you want more?

Okay :-D -N-

You describe family life so well.

Great chapter! I wish updates were more regular though

Author's Response: So do I. This has been ready for some time, but submissions were down for a while, and my stories were stacking up. I’m trying to achieve a monthly updates for "Strangers". I hope to have the next chapter with my betas soon. -N-

Chapter: Baking Buns and a Barmy Blonde

This was good! Luna...is Luna...is Luna. Your interpretation of Luna, I feel, was spot on. But I noticed she wasn't married yet? I'm curious as to how Luna and Rolf met.
- Katie

Author's Response: Katie
Thanks for the review. In interview JKR said that Luna marries “much later in life” so that’s what will happen, she’s still only 27 or 28. If you want to know how Luna and Rolf met? Read ECCENTRIC, but don’t expect romance.

Chapter: Baking Buns and a Barmy Blonde

I love this chapter, and your interpretation of Luna! One thing though, wouldn't Jacqui call the river a burn? Here's where she calls it a river, "That evening was glorious: the sun was back and the previous day’s storm was no more than a memory, and a slightly higher river." Unless Jacqui's talking about a different river. Anyway, this was fantastic! :D

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
Rivers are rivers, streams are burns, and Jacqui crosses the river Coquet on her way to Drakeshaugh. These are (mostly) real places, although I’ve had to shuffle the geography a little in order to fit Drakeshaugh into the area.

Chapter: A Confusion of Weasleys

'but I from her expression, I suspected I had offended her' Wouldnt that be more grammatically correct if it said 'but from her expression, I suspected I had offended her. Anyway, great story.

Chapter: School Gates

Great! But would the line, "I'm a land agent sell fields" be more grammatically correct if it was "I'm a land agent who sells fields"?

Author's Response: Thanks for letting me know.
The original worddoc said ‘I’m a land agent and I sell fields,' no idea what went wrong, but I've corrected it.
