I have to say andromeda is was harsher than I would've expected. As ugly as Bella was if you cut right to it. :-/
Author's Response: *snickers* That's what Draco says too. Andromeda's very angry and she's being asked to save someone she blames for the deaths of her family. She gets to be a little out of line. Don't forget, Bella is her sister and all the Blacks do seem to have a cruel streak, especially when they're hurting. Thanks for reviewing!
I'm dying from laughing at the drunk talk!
Author's Response: Draco and Harry are the cutest drunks ever, especially when they're together. It never fails! Thanks for the review.
I was intrigued by this story to begin with, and now I'm just plain obsessed. Not 100% sure where this is going (I've got, like, 10 different ideas lol), but I'm hooked nonetheless.
Concise writing is something I'm really envious of, so kudos on that as well :)
Author's Response: Thanks so much!
As for knowing where the story is going. It should be pretty hard to guess right now. There are still some big revolutions to come up.
<./br> I'm glad you're enjoying the story and thanks for taking the time to review. :)
Fantastic! Your Hermoine is fantastic!
Author's Response: Thaks for that! I was afraid people would find her a bit annoying. She's a bit obsessive, but so is canon!Hermione so I went with it. Thanks so much for reviewing.
(Narcissa)"Being cruelly rejected by her sister as a child was enough; she had no desire to repeat the ordeal.) That is not how the story is normally told.
Author's Response: ;) Don't forget, that's how Narcissa sees it. There's more than her side to the story...
I am really into this story. it is very good.
Author's Response: Thanks so much.
Sadly brilliant! Just amazing!
Author's Response: Thank you!
I'm crying too now with both of them!
Author's Response: Yes, it's sad. I'm actually really pleased with the response to this chapter. I was afraid people would see Androemda as a villian, and that's really not the idea. So yay! I'm glad I was able to make you feel for both characters, as that was the goal.
Didn't see that conversation coming...but I get a better glimpse of the direction you might be taking us.
Author's Response: Think you know where I'm going, huh? You might, with the Malfoys and Androemda, but I think I still have a few surprises in store. :) Thanks so much for the review.
I would be extremely surprised if Andromeda does not change her mind.
Author's Response: Well, I'm not going to tell you. What'd be the fun in that? You'll just have to wait and see how things go for the sisters. Thanks for reviewing. :)
Very interesting turn of events. Never saw this coming! Good work!!! Now I'm really intrigued.
Author's Response: Happy to hear I hooked you. :) Thanks for the review.
Author's Response: Thank you!
Interesting concept about Draco's blood being useless. I am not quite sure if I can imagine Bulstode as a senior Healer. Good rate of update. Thanks.
Author's Response: I'll be honest, I didn't do a lot of work on Bulstrode's character. She's really in the story because of Hermione's age and obvious lack of experience. I didn't want her to be especially kind or cruel. She's mostly just bored with her job, but willing to help out her underlings. Thanks for the review!
I love the Malfoy's here! And Hermione! Brilliant!!
Author's Response: Actually, they get better, in my opinion. Everyone's kinda in a daze right now. They don't know what's happening with Narcissa and kinda got tossed at each other. Wait til they get more used to each other and the situation. :) Thanks again for the review.
Author's Response: Thanks! :)
Brilliant! Fast post too! Love it!
Author's Response: Thanks so much. I love your reviews.
I'm enthralled by this story. Every bit of it smells exactly like the epilogue that should have happened but we never wanted to happen.
I like the characterizations, especially the Malfoys and Harry, but the brevity just leaves me sort of... unsatisfied. Perhaps when it all comes together it will seem 'stronger' to me, and I really hope it does. Right now I feel like we miss key characters' inner monologues or positions, but, again, that may be due to there being only a handful of chapters up yet.
Either way, I adore this and can't wait for more. Oh, and I never thought I'd see a Death song used within an HP fic. Fits better than I would've thought at first.
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I was very unsatisfied with the epilogue for many reasons. One being that the whole happily ever aspect felt very wrong. These people were all bound to be messed up. I get that it was nineteen years later, but I don't know...
Well, I'm thrilled you especially like Harry and the Malfoys because the most focus is on them. Harry, Draco and Narcissa probably have the biggest roles in the story. Honestly, I don't know how you'll feel about the later chapters, but I will say the first three were pretty much entirely set-up. See which chatacters will be playing and role and show where they're currently at in their lives. So hopefully you'll find the next chapters more satisfying.
Ah yes, the Death song. I hadn't even heard of them until yesterday. I was banging my head against a wall trying to find a song for this chapter and a friend suggested it. I was surprised how well it fit, too. :)
<./br> Thanks so much for the review. I really appreciate it. :)
An ugly cliff hanger! I'm really hooked on your story!
Author's Response: Cliffhangers are fun. :p At least, when you're writing them. Thanks for the review!
Too short!!! However, you've provided readers with characters in need of help: Teddy, Harry, Hermione, and Andromeda. Teddy's age necessitates adult supervision, Harry's drinking and self-loathing requires tough love, Hermione's nature demands an outlet to help others, and Andromeda's role as Teddy's caregiver-by-default provides a starting point for a very interesting conclusion. Don't stray too far afield trying to bring other needy characters into the mix: you have a nice combination to work with!
Author's Response: Yes, I tend to write chapters. I happen to like them better. Thanks so much for the comments. There actually are more characters with issues, but they've already been introduced. You just skipped them. :p
No words just teary smiles
Author's Response: Awww...thanks so much.
