Onions...so many onions...
Such a beautiful story, poignant and real, and heart-rendingly truthful about the struggle to rebuild. Amazing job.

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! Haha, they always show up when you least expect them to... Thank you so much for the kind words :)

My goodness, this last chapter made me especially teary. I've got a redheaded brother myself, and I love him to pieces- even though he does irritate me to pieces most of the time. He knows I'm different from everyone, but treats me like he would anyone else. He's always there for me, and isn't afraid to let me know he loves me- unlike my other brother.
Man, this is making me feel kind of teary.

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! Siblings are somehow the best and sometimes worst things to ever happen to us, aren't they? Sorry about the teary-ness :)

Chapter: Building Bridges Made of Smoke

If Draco had been born in a different family...

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! Yeah, he isn't an evil person deep down; he just followed his father because it was all he knew. It does make you wonder.

Very nice story! I want more. Please?

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! There won't be more of this exact story, but I will be writing more post-DH stuff about various characters. Hopefully that's okay? Anyway, glad you enjoyed this :)

A real New Year's treat, two updates in one day!

This is really beautiful and heartwarming. It's so full of hope and the promise of the return to a new normal.

I have one request: you MUST write what happens between Harry and Ginny out in the garden!! Throw a Harry/Ginny shipper a bone!

Question for you: do you have a mapped out timeline for your post-epilogue canon, including your missing moments material? I'd love to know what you think happens when, but I suppose that's the journey you're taking now, that I will happily follow!

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing this as well! Haha, a bone may be thrown. I do have an idea for a H/G oneshot, but I make no solid promises. I have a lot of the big moments in the Weasley-centric characters (especially a certain couple) and Draco mapped out and will probably cover most of it in fics eventually. Thank you for tagging along :)

Sad at times but with that touch of hope that things would get better. I will miss this look at life.

Chapter: Tomorrow

So, after practically sobbing at this ending, I'm finally coherent enough to write a review.

This was an extremely powerful story in each and every chapter and really sums about the feelings I imagine going through the Weasley family so soon after the battle. I love all the little details to add to the story, such as Molly's choices for naming her children in this latest chapter. They really add to the depth of the story and fit so well with canon that I think you must have secret connections to JKR, haha. Anyways, this was a wonderful story that I thoroughly enjoyed and the only thing that would have made it better is if you had written nineteen chapter instead of only six. :)

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! Sorry about the sobbing. Thank you so much for saying that. The little things like the names are really fun to think of so I'm really happy that they are appreciated. Haha, yes, we do have a connection. Well, I stalk her, but I am sure that counts. Nineteen would have been nice really, but I was running out of main characters. ANyway, thank you so much for reviewing and I'm glad that you enjoyed the story :)

Chapter: Building Bridges Made of Smoke

Malfoy is so wretched that I almost feel sorry for him. Almost.

This is great, but I find myself wanting more recognition by Malfoy that his previously held conceptions about Ron and Hermione (and really everyone he had been aligned against at Hogwarts) were so wrong. I want to see him squirm more. I want to see the painful realization that the people he baited and tormented for so many years are so much better and stronger than he is. I feel like Malfoy is a character screaming for catharsis.

How many more chapters of this are you anticipating?

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing :) At this point in the story he is a bit pitiable. Couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. Yeah, it is difficult because it has been less than 3 weeks since the end of the war. You can see Draco almost coming to that conclusion but he hasn't got there yet. It's going to be a long road, but I can see him walking it. There is only one more chapter of this (I'll let you decide if that is a good or bad thing).

You do Draco's character quite well, the conflicted opinions, the desire to get a rise out of Ron...

Author's Response: Thank you for reading and reviewing! Draco was a lot of fun to write actually, even with all of his issues so thanks :)

Chapter: An Awkward Conversation

This is probably one of my favorite things of yours that I've read yet. It's so completely heartbreaking and touching at the same time - the juxtaposition of Hermione shutting out her father just as she lets Ron in (pardon the pun). It's so refreshing to see a Hermione who is not ok with what happened to her, who is having a hard time dealing with it, and an even harder time communicating about it. She's not weeping because she's sad to have upset her parents, she's emotionally compromised to the point where she can barely communicate about what's happened to her. Very well done, as usual!

Author's Response: Thank you! It was probably one of my favourites to write, even though it was a bit angsty. I refuse to pardon a pun that I giggled at. I've always thought it would be more than just bad dreams for her. This whole fic is just me trying to show that everyone is different in some way after what happened. Hermione seems like she would be too strong for her own good but it would just make things worse. Anyway, glad you enjoyed it!

Chapter: The Ones Left Behind

I have read the first four chapters in the span of about a half hour. Couldn't put it down. The Bogart scene between Percy and Ron were heart wrenching for me. I don't know why but I hadn't really thought about the fact that Ron would so obviously be changed by the events at Malfoy Manor. I mean to say that I never thought about a bogart changing from the spiders of his youth to Hermione's torture. But it's obvious that it would be so. Thank you for some excellent storytelling. The scene with Hermione and her dad was also hard to bear. As a mother, you want to think your children would be able to share their deepest hurts with you. Mostly because you have tended to their hurts from day one. The movement from adolescence into adulthood is wretched enough, but add in the horrific trauma these kids endured, makes it even worse. I cannot imagine, either form Hermione's POV or her dads. I look forward to reading more. You are on my favorites list. ;)

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! Wow - quick reading! I think Malfoy Manor changed everyone who was there - good and bad - so I was hoping to show that. I think Hermione wants to want to open up to her dad but doesn't want to for several reasons. Obviously it's hard on both of them. Thank you for adding me to your favourites list :)

Chapter: The Ones Left Behind

So I just want you to know that you are one of the most well versed authors I have read. Ever. I have read most of your work (is that creepy? nah!) and I love every single bit of it! You have such talent and a wonderful grasp on the characters and their relationships with each other. I wait with bated breath to read more of the stories I'm following from you and I hope you continue to pursue your writing (ever thought of it as a career?) for a long time.
My kindest regards and best wishes,
Quill And Ink

Author's Response: Thanks for reading, reviewing and the kind words :) Nah, it's not creepy; it's a huge compliment so thank you! Thought about it - yes. But I've also thought about being an astronaut. Anyway, thank you so much for the review and I hope you'll be reading for as long as I am writing :)

I couldn't breathe through this chapter. But I think Hermione should open up to her dad, hard as it must be.

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing again :) I've not long started writing a chaptered fic about Hermione's relationship with her parents and Ron after the war. It's going to be months before it's ready to be seen, but it will happen eventually. Glad you liked this chapter!

Chapter: An Awkward Conversation

An intriguing use of irony in that Hermione could answer her father's question honesty, yet she is avoiding the issue by dwelling on behavior she dreads to share and doesn't have to share.

Author's Response: Thanks on reading and reviewing :) Yeah, I was hoping to show how she is comfortable with people like Ron and Harry, who understand what happened but isn't with people who weren't, no matter how much she loves them. Glad you liked it!
