Hey u never explained how they became the Noble Houses.

Author's Response: I didn't, not exactly, but the presence of the vault of the Once and Future King was a bit of a nint. :-D -N-

OMGoodness I loved this story. I never thought about Draco, but I did think about Teddy. Keep writing!

Author's Response: Thank you. I gave Draco a lot of thought. :-D I will keep writing. -N-

Another great story. I like how, although the story was told from Ron’s perspective.

I’d like to see what happens with Neville's house when he chooses Hannah.

Author's Response:

In your Grave Days review you suggested that I could have added more to that story. This is one such missing moment.

Not many people read my Neville/Hannah stories. But even so I will, one day, write the story of her visit to the vaults.

Wow! I want fan art of the shield of Lupin.

Author's Response: Search for la cote male taile and you'll find the original shield of Breunor le Noir. -N-.

Perfect storytelling, as always. I had hoped their heir would be Teddy. I love the way you described him; he sounds like such an adorable child! You should write more about him.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
I should write more aout Teddy, and one day I will.

Ron's right I do like a happy ending too.
Draco was so in character, not a happy ferret.

Author's Response: Thank you.
Ron was rather worried, but it all turned out well in the end.

I enjoyed that very much. It was satisfying that many readers' wish for the heir to be Teddy was fulfilled, and I was intrigued by the history you created of the Noble and Most Ancient Houses and nicely surprised by Neville's being the potential heir to such a house. Most of all, I *love* that the N&MAHouse of Black is now the N&MAHouse of Lupin - such poetic justice! Sirius, Tonks & Remus must be roaring with laughter while Bellatrix must be rolling in her grave. I hope you bring this thread of N&MAHouse of Lupin back into another story in the future. It's very original.

Author's Response: Thans for the review.
The words Noble and Most Ancient struck a chord with my interest in Arthurian legend, and when I found La Cote Mal Taillée on the Winchester round table and saw both shield and his name "le Noir" I had to use it.
The very different reactions of Neville and Draco to being a potential heir were fun to play with, too.
Male preference primogeniture meant, however, that there was no doubt as to the final outcome in my mind. You will certainy hear more about the badly fitting coat, and the black shield of Maledisant, but not for some time. -N-

Awwww..... As I was reading this I thought, what about Teddy, and TADAAA! Brilliant writing. Loved it :)

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
Credit must also go to: The Wnchester Round Table, and Le Morte d'Arthur. I didn't invent Brunor le Noir - the knight with the badly fitting coat.

Aw! I'm so glad it was Teddy! Very good read! Looking forward to more Stranger, A&S, and Hunters! :)

Author's Response: Thanks, it couldn't really be anyone else!
The next chapter of H&P will be submitted soon.

I was so excited to see this chapter up. I love his grandparents. I love how a certain character was so certain he was the heir and he wasn't. It is great to see a person/family receive this honor. It was wonderfully written, as always. Thank you.

Author's Response: Thanks.
I'm happy you liked it. The Black family crest bears a certain similarity to the crest of Sir Brunor le Noir. Once I discovered that, and figured out the succession, this story wrote itself.

It is always so much fun to see that you have a new post, even if I am a few days late in reading it. :)

Have my theories as well, but will wait to see what you have in mind.

As always enjoying your work.

Author's Response: Edyeb
Thanks for the review.
There will be one more chapter of this tale, and that will be it. I'm working to finalise it now.
If you can identify the shields, and the names adjacent to Brunor's then you're close to getting the answers.

I've been reading a bunch of your fics lately, and I really like the way you've made strong and happy relationships into interesting stories. It's harder than it sounds, I know.

This story is very original and totally intriguing. I like the touches about how ticked off the goblins are with Harry. I can see two possible heirs, and a potential fight for Harry to give it to the one he wants rather than the one who will want it. I look forward to seeing it unfold.

Author's Response:
Than you.

JKR wanted to give (and gave) her main characters happy endings. I'm not about to change that. However, there are a lot of minor characters (like Lavender) who I can make very miserable without affecting JKR's epilogue.

It sounds like you're on the right track wih the two, but will Harry have a choice?

Harry and Ginny spot on. Its almost as if your Jo Rowling sometimes. You're a born writer. Ever considered being an author? Anyway great story, as always. :)

This is as close to "being an author" as I'll ever get, I suspect.

Great story, Ginny and Harry spot on, good to see their relationship develop through your different stories.
Love the grandparents, such a creative idea.
Have two possible candidates for heir will have to wait and see.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
Most of my recent H/G stories have been "Harry and Ginny Potter - parents of young children" and it was a lot of fun to return to their teenage snogging days :-D
The idea for the Potter grandparents came to me in a flash, and I thought, surely someone has done this before. It may be original, but in fanfic, I doubt it.
You'll find out soon.

Wow! Really interesting! I'm a big fan of your writing, Northumbrian, and I'm consistently impressed with the creativity of your stories and the way you blend a faithfulness to JK Rowling's world with a creative expansion of the world beyond the books. Keep it coming!

Author's Response: Thank you for the kind words.
Faithfulness to JKR's world is what I strive for. This particular story will be no more than one (possibly two) more chapters, but there is other stuff in the works.

Because of the submission issues I find myself with a backlog of stories. Currently in the queue are: The Professor and his Landlady, and Strangers C.12: Baking Buns and a Barmy Blonde :-D
