I was contemplating having my hair dyed for a change, but now, I think not, although I do like purple. Perhaps they can change back to their normal colours with magic, I know they're under age but who'd know it was them? Or is there not a hair stylist in Diagon Alley?
After chapter one i thought Cho would get both letters, but this way causes much more trouble. And Oh Harry! what a man, stringing two girls alone at once, can't wait to see what Hermione does.
How come Hermione's parents didn't hear them arguing? Also, it's going very fast, not a very Hermione-like way to behave, although, she is a determined person, she made up her mind she wanted Harry and then set out to get him.
Another brilliant one shot. I love how Ginny is alot more grown up than many of the others, and how she drew on her own experiences to comfort Harry and make him see the truth. And I'm guessing here, but he'd probably feel alot better sharing the burden. You've really shown Ginny's true character here, she did turn out to be strong and brave in canon and you've continued that here. Very well done.
Chapter 6 is 40% complete
Hmm, me thinks James has worked out that Lily is messing him around to hurt him but also that she's falling for him. The messer becomes the messee? You've not updated in so long I'm worrying you've abandoned this, but I'm adding it to my favourites in the hopes you haven't, plus these first few chapters are so good I may wish to reread them.
You're another one of those authors that make me feel sorry for Draco Malfoy, I hate that. There were points when he was given chores that I thought it served him right, but then i realised he'd been brought up not to know any better. I'm glad he changed in the end.
Author's Response: Wow! I\'m so thrilled that people are still reading this! Thanks for the note.
YES! Thank you, thank you, thank you. I was so worried that Draco would go back to the Slytherins. Guess he realised it showed more strength of character and power to stand alone. And I'm glad Harry saw sense too, and that was a lovely thing for him to do for them. Wonder if in this reality Harry will end up with Parvati? I've really enjoyed this fic, it's had humour, tragedy, laughter, and love, what a combination.
Author's Response: Oh, waow, thank you! That was a very good comment to receive. I'm all ahppy now :-) Im so glad you liked it.
How very upsetting. I love the jokey bit at the beginning, seems as though they were very happy. And the marauder clock is an excellent insert. I still don't understand why they didn't disapparate immediately when they knew Peter betrayed them, they could've kept moving like the trio did in DH until they could contact Dumbledore and get a new, trustworthy secret keeper. Sorry, I'm a what if and why person. Great fic, and I love that song too.
Well, you've done it again, I'm bursting with happiness and grinning like a fool. What an absolutely amazing fic, and again there's everything in there, sadness, humour and love. That last paragraph was very striking, an excellent way to round off the story. The journey through the room of requirement was touching but amusing at the same time, I'm afraid i can't think of Ron and hermione without a smile, because they're like two puzzle pieces that fit together perfectly. Harry and Ginny on the other hand as I've gathered from this fic, are more like a single entity. Also, the comparisons Ginny made between Andromeda and herself gave me a wonderful feeling. The secret waterfall and Ginny's conversation with Sirius was a lovely addition, that's one of my favourite things about fan fics, the new elements that people come up with. Aside from that, it's nice to know Sirius had a sanctuary from his gastly family. Definitely another for my favourites.
I've loved reading this fic. All the characters were so much themselves that it was like an extension of canon. I really didn't like Miranda at all, but then I thought if she grew up lonely then once she found somebody she wanted she'd fight tooth and nail for them. I'm guessing that her contemplative mood over the last few days of her stay with the Weasleys was her realising that Hermione and Ron did belong together and it's more lonely to be with someone who isn't happy than to be alone. All of the thoughts in between dialogue were very funny, weird how we never show our complete selves to anyone. I'd love it if there were a sequel, but if not, thanks anyway for this, I've had an evening very well spent.
Fantastic! She literally made her dreams come true. I always wonder whether we know what to do all along to make things right and dreams, however strange they may get, are just sorting our thoughts out. I once read in a book that to solve a problem we need to look at things sideways and sideways meant asleep. I do think there are other sorts of dreams too though, like in the BFG. Anyway, brilliant fic, I once had a similar dream but sadly mine never came true.
That must be one of the worst agonies someone can endure, I'm in floods just reading about it. You did a beautiful job with such a sensitive subject.
Wow, that would've been awful for everyone there to see, but Harry seemed genuinely happy and at peace, something he always sought. Wonder if any of us are happy and at peace?
NO! I HATE LUCIUS MALFOY! that poor demiguise, and it sounds like such a lovely pet too. This is a very depressing ficlet and you're making me feel so sorry for Draco, but not as sorry for him as i am for the demiguise and it's mother.
OK, now I no longer feel sorry for Draco, I hate him too. I know he's under a lot of pressure and I guess he's been brain washed for years, but why couldn't he just do what was right? I read a book called Break In by the author Dick Francis, there's a character called Bobby whose father tried to brainwash him into murdering someone, but he didn't do it, so for the sake of that poor demiguise I'm going to have Draco perform an unlocking charm and the creature will escape out the open window. There, i made it all better.
This was brilliant! And I absolutely loved the poem.
Awe, that was beautiful. I love fluff.
I'm beaming, this was wonderful. Was the memory of their being married one of his dreams or something?
I wish i were Lily in this scene. Althoug i did think she has a cheek going through his bag like that.
Oh, I love Sirius right now. I'm not sure which of the four situations i like best so i'm going to pretend they all happened, in different potterverse realities, that ok with you? Oh and this is going on my favourites, you can't beat fluff.
