This story is so very cute, and has a nice relevant plot, which is often missing in fluffy stories. I also think you captured the confusion Andromeda had because she did really love Ted. And he loved her too, which is why he would understand and want her to be happy again. I would love to read more if its out there. I have read some of your other stories too, but I'm mostly a strictly cannon pairings and 7th book addressing reader. I would not have thought to put those two together, but I think they work well. I think a Molly POV ruminating about couples, including this one, would be really fun to read (or write) as well.

Eeeep! What a great story, Croll. I really enjoyed reading this, despite some hesitation at the pairing, mostly because I ship Ted/Andromeda so much and maybe also because I don’t think I've ever read a story with Kingsley in the main pairing. But I needn’t have worried, because this little fic was so enjoyable, so refreshing to read. It’s lovely to see romance between people who aren’t teenagers, for once, because that definitely makes up the bulk of the romance fics that I've read on MNFF.

The way you wrote Teddy was so adorable, and I have to say, the whole idea of Andromeda kind of living only for me resonated pretty strongly with me. I think you really captured Andromeda’s emotions and how torn she was between wanting to stay with the voices of Ted and Dora in her head, and wanting to move on and be happy. I also loved how Ted’s voice came across so characteristically despite not actually being there “ that was one reason my hesitation at the pairing kind of went away, because it was nice to see that Andromeda wasn’t disregarding Ted in any way. Same with Dora. I love how distinct her voice is, the few times she pops up in the fic.

It was good to see how Andromeda felt remorse for treating Remus more coldly than she had wanted. But at the same time, I get why she did “ he did leave her, after all, so I can understand why she wasn’t always too friendly towards him. Still, the cause she decides to donate to is a great one, and it was nice to see that put in. On that note, I really liked how this story is plotty as well as a romance. I've always thought that was a strength of yours in writing and reading a fic of yours after a while made me remember that. :)

This was a wonderful story for me to read after being out of the fanfic loop for so long. Well done!

Thanks, especially for the final remark in your notes! I'm turning 61 on the 19th, and I'm far from dead.

Author's Response: Yay, I hope you had a good birthday, then. Thank you for the review and I'm glad you enjoyed the story. ~Carole~

Not a pairing that I would have thought of. But it worked well.

Author's Response: Thank you. It's funny because I've had this pairing in mind for years, mainly because I can't bear the thought that Andromeda loses almost everything.

Enjoyed this story. I agree romance is usually left to the young ones, but I think more stories like this would be welcomed.

Author's Response: Yes, and Andromeda deserves a happy ending, I feel. Thank you ~Carole

What a lovely story and beautiful ending. I believe we need stories about romance between older characters. In fact I think I might add some of that to the end of my Bella Rosa story. I'm older but I still enjoy the romance of life and as my Tinkerbelle car mats say, I'm a "fearless flirt." Thanks for a great story.

Author's Response: Thank you for the review and I'm glad you enjoy older type romances. These teenagers take over! Thanks again ~Carole~

Wow--a kiss. It might have started as a peck on the cheek but there's no denying it ended up a kiss on the mouth:D I totally approve. The nerve of Rita Skeeter to actually come to Andromeda's home. I hope Andromeda doesn't keep using Teddy as an excuse.

Author's Response: Yes, they kissed, even if it was accidental - ha ha. Thank you ~Carole~

I hope there's nothing too serious wrong with Kingsley. I could feel the excitement of Andromeda and Kingsley racing to beat the Malfoys to the Lestrange vault.

Author's Response: I'm so pleased you found it exciting as I was worried the tension wasn't holding. Thank you. ~Carole~

Like Molly I'm a little curious if there could be romance brewing for Kingsley and Andromeda. He seems very considerate of her. I can't wait to see what's in Rabastan's vault. I hope Andromeda profits from this.

Author's Response: You will see ... (actually yo already have. Thank you!)

I look forward to quick updates. I think if I were Andromeda I'd take all the money I could and run. Those rat bastards took away her husband and daughter and son-in-law. Money won't pay for those losses but it would make life more comfortable for Andromeda and Teddy. I'd take it all!! And I'd be more than happy to have lunch with Kingsley:D

Author's Response: Kingsley is lovely. I'd happily have lunch with him every day. Thanks for the review. ~Carole
