I suppose after 96 chapters, more than 400 000 words and almost three years, the least you deserve is a thank you-note. So - thank you. I really did enjoy it, and do appreciate all your hard work. You've written a wonderful story.
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you liked it!
I am a Harry/Luna shipper even though I am perfectly happy with the way it turned out in HBP, but I have to admit, when you let the readers complain in the end I was sure Harry would reply that he didn't need a girl because he was going to die in the last book ... I was actually a bit disappointed when he replied otherwise! (wow, long sentence.)
I honestly thought you were going to kill them, and that almost made me hate you ... which is a shame, because I absolutely love this story. (And not only because you're letting Tonks and Remus live!) It's very original and well written and ... I am definitly looking forward to reading the epilogue.
A beautiful story! I just love the ending, it's very touching. And I love thick woolen socks =)
I loved the idea, but hey, this simply can't be a one shot. You can't just have her quit. I want to read more!!! =)
Author's Response: I\'ll think about it, and see if I can make up another. I do have a unformed idea, and a first line. And I hope to give you all more to read soon!
Haha, this was fun. Here comes a letter for Draco!
I am very confused. You see, I'm in love in this really sexy Slytherin boy named Blaise - or, I thought he was a boy but then suddenly he was a girl, and I started wondering whether or not I was a lesbian. But then, when I finally had accepted that maybe I was a lesbian, and that it was not so bad if it meant I could be with Blaise, it turned out he had been a boy all the time! No I simply can't help but wonder what's truly underneath his (her?) clothes ... What am I supposed to do? Should I stop reading fanfiction?
Confused & Obsessed
Author's Response: Draco is (finally!) reviewing your letter!
I wasn't going to read this, because I don't like Fenrir (who does?), but - obviously - I read it anyway ... and it was simply beautiful. It made me cry.
Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it :)
This story is very, very beautiful. I find myself, as a reader, trusting the author completely, and that is something that, unfortunately, rarely happens when I'm reading fanfiction. But with this story, it happened, because ... honestly, I don't know. I think it's partly because of the summary, which intrigued me, or the chapter titles, which I couldn't make any sense out of, but felt just right anyhow ... but mainly, it is simply the story as a whole ... it feels as everyting - every word, every sentence - is exactly as it should be.
I don't know how to describe it any better, I just wanted you to know that I think this is a truly wonderful piece of literature.
That idea of trust is an interesting one. When I'm reading something, I really enjoy not knowing exactly where the story is headed, and if the author puts in enough interesting details about what's passing by, I don't really care about reaching the destination at the end. I think, if there's a bit of trust between the reader and the author, that sometimes you can do away with a traditional sort of structure, with a set-up and a conclusion, and just go for a walk around and look at interesting things.
Thankyou for the review. If I can write something that's both indescribable and wonderful, then that's a pretty good achievement.
As I have read and enjoyed this story to the end, I figured you deserve a review, or, at the very least, a thank-you-note. So thank you for writing this story, I simply adore your Neville! The epilogue was very sweet.
After the Battle of Hogwarts, Luna and Neville retreat to the Hog's Head to explore the feelings of attraction that have been growing over the year. Is what they feel for 'real' or just the thrll of being young and having survived.
What they find or don't find will shape their futures
The fable about the fish and the pelican was very beautiful and fitting! It's a wonderful story, well done!
