Yay for an update!!! I really am loving the story ... well done :)
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. -N-
First...Yay for an update. Second...I enjoyed the insight into the investigation and the good time Jackie obviously had with Ginny. Great chapter. Third...i hope Mary gets put in her place again. Fourth...I hope the next update isn't too far away. I am sitting on the edge of my seat already.
Author's Response: First: It's about time, sorry.
Second: There will be alot more about the investigation in the next chapter, which will be another interlude.Third: What do you think?
Fourth: the next chapter is already 1000 words, but I'm also working on Hunters and Prey.-N-
Oh finally. James clearly does not understand the concept of the statute of secrecy. :P
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Of course he doesn't, because he's not even five. Of course it will still be giving him problems in sixteen years time. -N-
Thanks for update. I've been waiting for it. Great chapter as always. Friendship between the two families is progressing very well. But I think, it will be increasingly difficult to keep secrets when their friendship growing up like that. I can't wait for next update.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
The friendship is progressing nicely, but as the full moon approaches, the case is also beginning to cast a shadow.-N-
As I'm sure you can tell by my many reviews, I'm a big fan of this story (all all your writing, really) and I can't wait to see what happens next! Do you have a rough estimate of future updates?
Author's Response: Thanks. I will be submitting the next chapter of Hunters and Prey very soon. I'm currently working on more H&P, plus the next chapter of this, and my beta has a Creevey brothers story. -N-
First a breastfeeding fic, then advocating for home water birth. You're a man after my own hippie heart.
Author's Response: IThanks, I'm a man married to a woman who works in maternity, you'd be surprised what we talk about at the dinner table. (Actually, if you read all my stuff, you wouldn't.) -N-
Ohhh, George. All your characterizations are so very lovable. Not in that flat, teddy bear, never-do-anything-wrong sort of way, in the real-life, flawed-but-I-love-you-anyway way.
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you think so. I try to retain the character's flaws. I have been accused of making Ginny too angry and violent, but I've also been accused of making her too meek, so... -N-
I love the image of Charlie being the "cool" uncle, bearing gifts like sweets and galleons.
Author's Response: Thanks, that’s what eccentric unmarried uncles do, isn’t it? -N-
Interesting...Jacqui is the daughter of the Mrs. Lake in H&P. I know I already said this, but I really enjoy how your stories all fit together.
Author's Response: Thanks. I try to make sure that my stories can be read without reference to each other, but I also try to make them fit, so that people who read all of them spot (usually unimportant) stuff others might miss. -N-
I'm really enjoying reading about Harry & Ginny's family through the eyes of a Muggle neighbor, especially the clever ways they come up with to explain things (like their housekeeper called Creech) and the observations Jacqui makes that she thinks are far-fetched but are really quite accurate.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I’m certain that a good part of the popularity of this story (and it’s by far my most popular) is because you (the reader) can feel superior to poor Jacqui, because you know what’s really going on. -N-
"Iit was no worse than calling your sons Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz." Burn! Haha. Your stories are full of so many great one-liners!
Author's Response: Thanks. I couldn’t resist, although I’m not sure whether I’m poking fun at the Beckhams or those people who hate Albus S Potter’s full name. Both, probably. -N-
Oh, yay, Amber's an Auror. :) I love how all your characters and stories intertwine.
Author's Response: She’s a trainee, actually. :-D -N-
Ohh, I was so excited for Lavender and (presumably) Mark, but it quickly turned to sadness and worry! I hope everything works out for the three of them.
Author's Response: Thanks. You’ll find out more about Mark and Lavender later. -N-
"I’m Harry Potter, James’s dad.’ There was so much pride in his voice when he spoke those last two words that I wanted to hug him" Aw, this makes me want to hug him too. Great line.
Author's Response: Thank you. I know that not everyone agrees, but I regard the DH epilogue as a brilliant piece of writing. JKR manages to show the different family dynamics of the next-generation Potter and Weasley families in great detai,l using very few words. -N-
Love this story very realistic I think and happy there's not so much ppl dying or something like that that many stories have thanks for. A great read and plz update soon btw ur my fave author
Thanks for the review.So far the dying has taken place off stage, but there will be a death before it ends.
"They’re supposed to be in Sweden for a conference, and it starts in an hour." Witches and Muggles do not mix. I laugh at these little accidental to-much-said. Post the next one quick now, later.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. More back-pedalling required from Ginny. I'll be posting something soon, but it won't be the next chapter of Strangers, sorry. Although you should see it before easter. -N-
I just read first 6 chapters of this story and loved it. The plot of the story is very nice and binding. Everything really amazing. Hope you update it very soon. If you can complete it soon, it would be quite better. Thank you so much.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review (number 250, hurrah!). I'm hoping to update soon, but we've only just passed the halfway stage of this story, so it won't be complete for a while. Also, I'm trying to finish at least one of my other stories. -N-
Way to go! A cliffhanger. Please update soon. I love this story, the characters are just right. And we visited Alnwick in September and fell in love. The back drop to you story is absolutely brilliant!!!
Author's Response: Thanks.
Alnwick, is one of the finest market towns in my part of the world (although Morpeth, Hexham and Berwick might disagree). Setting this story in an area I know well has its advantages.-N-
I'm really enjoying this story! I especially like how well I feel like I know Jacqui; we really get inside her head and learn her insecurities and her passions. Very engagingly written! Jacqui is VERY good at picking up on the pieces of the Potters' lives that don't quite make sense, and I'm sure the conference-in-Sweden-in-an-hour comment is not about to go unnoticed...
Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
Jacqui cetainly has her insecurities, but as you say, she's an excellent observer, even though you the reader can make more sense of her observations than she can. The conference is Ginny's latest slip. She should have known better...-N-
I hope that you've had a Happy New Year. The quick update was definitely fantastic, I really enjoyed it.
I seem to not be the only one who's picked up on Luna and Rolf's trip to Sweden. A hour? Huh, can't think of any possible ways that could happen. I'm looking forward to whatever comes next. Good job! :D
Thanks for the review, and Happy New Year.
You're fight, it's an impossible journey by Muggle means. Will Ginny explain away her slip? Next will be something I haven't updated in a long time, and after that?
