Ginny's getting scarey! What's wrong with her? And those stairs were cool! make it difficult for unwanted visitors. No taste in decor, that's what i like to see. And if we had that door bell, my mum would go nuts.
I still think there's something weird going on with Ginny. And I think theres some sort of telepathy or at least empathy between her and Harry, it's that relaxing spell, if indeed thats what it really was. I have the feeling that Dumbledore's at it again, chuckling to himself in his office muttering 'dance puppets dance'.
Author's Response: You\'re such a detective! Well I won\'t tell you exactly what\'s going on but I will say that the Remissio spell does strength the bond between two people ... and their minds/hearts ...
I really don't know why Voldemort's keeping Harry alive, and how did Dumbledore know they'd need that connection between Harry and Ginny? Dumbledore's too in the know if you ask me. Don't get me wrong, I love Dumbledore, I just theink he's a bit manipulative. I'll miss this fic too, and it's only taken me an evening to read.
Author's Response: Dumbledore\'s always in the know, and I agree with you on his slightly scary side.
OH NO! What a place to end! I'm so glad theres a sequel. I really liked the song extracts throughout this chapter too. I'm wondering if Voldemort, not knowing the full prophecy didn't want to chance killing Harry, but I'm scared now that Dumbledore told the ministry the prophecy and the death eaters have taken over, that Voldemort will find out what is to happen. Guess I'll have to wait until i read the sequel. Wonder if Ginny's odd behaviour will be explained? Anyway, thanks for the fic.
Author's Response: Oh, Ginny\'s an odd one. Sometimes too strong and stubborn for her own good. As is Harry, I think. Thank you so much for reading and for your insightful reviews! I hope you enjoy the sequel, but have tissues ready ... hp xx
I think this is my favourite chapter so far, apart from the kissing Voldemort part...Eeww!! Anyway, the randomness was just so hilarious I hadn't a clue where i was. One thing though, couldn't they escape out the window or something? Oh, or couldn't Hermione send all four of them to Dumbledore like she did Lucius and Pettigrew?
Well, the randomness continues. It appears that none of them seem to be too bothered about leaving, and where are all the bad guys? And how come they're so bothered about being cousins when purebloods have been inbreeding for centuries?
Um, well the plot is so mental, it's like a very bad soap opera, like watching a bludger knock someone from a broom, so awful you can't not look. Sorry, I meant all that in a good way.
P.S. Oh and Emus? Malfoy Sr is sick! Can't Dumbledore rescue them and send them to live in Hagrid's pumpkin patch with Buckbeak?
It Is a very very bad soap opera! Fantastic, I love those. I also find it strange when people feel offended at being mistakenly assumed gay, surely the error is easily rectified.
The sequel has started off much more serious, sounds like a real thriller, but i hope there's still some randomness woven in.
I really liked this, Draco was still very much himself even if only in a teasing way and the Clannagh ring was a nice idea. The Lilies and Narcissus were a lovely touch too.
Wow, this is quite a change from any other fic ive read, I'm curious to know how Harry defeated Voldemort without Hermione's help and how come he didn't break up with Lavender as he had with Ginny in the books. Perhaps not having lost Dumbledore he's not as paranoid? I wonder how he saved Sirius in third year too, without the time turner. Sorry, I'm assuming too much, maybe not all of that happened in your Harry's past. I'm a little concerned that Hermione snapped at Harry when he knocked her down, I mean it was an accident and he did apologise. Perhaps she was just having an off day. Doesn't look like you'll be continuing this fic but it's on my favourites so i'll get the updates if there are any.
Oh no! Why end it on a cliffy? Where's the happyily ever after ending? I can't believe it! I've read this fic all in one go and I can't believe it's over, it was so fantastic! It was brilliantly written, full of emotion and description and promise. I think perhaps the whole fic was about Draco's self realisation, and you ended it the way you did because this was the point at which he broke free. But do correct me if i'm wrong. Part of me is desperate for a one shot five years later, because i'd love to see how things ended up but without seeing the battle. Either way this is going on my favourites.
I loved this, it was brilliant! I think I've read a prequel to it, it's nice to finally see them tell everyone, and what a great way to do it. I'd love to have seen Malfoy's face, I bet if was a real picture.
This fic was lovely, a happy ending, just what i needed. And I loved the song too.
I'm enjoying this story so much, I just have a few queries. Firstly, wasn't Ron's girlfriend sorted into Ravenclaw, if so, why was she in a class which was for Gryffindors and Slytherins only? And if Voldemort already knows about Draco and Hermione, why do they have to stop going out, surely it'd make no difference if they carried on? Oh, and why was Lucius Malfoy at the school, was it as a governer or was he not meant to be there? Sorry, I'm a bit dim and need everything spelling out. If I had the chance to send JKR reviews like this I'd have repetative strain injury and my ? button would be worn out.
Wow, this was quite sad, made me feel really down until the end. I really like the message in there and the ending was perfect.
Just thought i'd post a quick review before reading the remaining chapters. I loved the scene between Snape and Nicky during the first potions class, she was so funny. And it was hilarious in this chapter when the trio kept completing Malfoy's sentences. Can't wait to find out Nicky's secret.
Not the nicest of chapters, but well written all the same. I feel sick now. Is it possible to become pregnant in such a short space of time? Or is it because they're magical? Or did Malfoy put some sort of curse on her to make it happen? Hopefully next chapter won't be as bloody, I need a pick me up.
Author's Response: yeah... that part was somewhat o the downer side... it portrayed a part of my real life from something that happened to a very close friend of mine. my apologies for almost making you sick. and yes, it is because they are magical that it happened so quickly. the rest won;t be so bad... i promise
I feel better now, a much more hopeful chapter. Wow, Jen is so brave! I don't know if I'd be strong enough to do what she is. I'm still wondering what the mistery is surrounding Jen, why does Voldemort want her, is it because she does wandless magic or because of what she's doing for Dumbledore? What if Voldemort possessed Malfoy in such a way that Jen's now carrying his child not Malfoy's? OK, enough speculation, moving on before i feel sick again, wouldn't it be cool if Fred and George could aparate to each others location because of some twin telepathy phenomenon? Then Fred would've found George in a few seconds.
Author's Response: you will find out why she is so important at some point or another... lets just say that potter isn;t the only one with a prophecy. and yes, she is brave... and life for her is never to be 100% happy (just like harry\'s) until voldie is dead... but when will that be?
