I'm 30 years old, married and an avid reader.
I love Fantasy books. Some of my favorite Authors include JKR, David Eddings, Tad Williams, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Elizabeth Hayden, and Robert Jordan.
I have a twin sister that betas for me. We have always been best friends and I hope we will stay that way.
I have found a great fondness for taking Hapkido. I'm currently a purple belt, and really having fun since I have gotten my twin, Step-sister, and husband to start coming to class with me. I also have a few other massage therapists from my office that come.
My favorite Animals are penguins. I also have a thing for cats, which led to me writing my first story, Switched.
My first Child was born in June. She is totally amazing, and I can't wait until she is old enough to share Harry with.
You belong in Gryffindor!

I personally really like Hermione's plan. It won't be easy, but reminding people of what is worth fighting for is always a good thing. Showing people the beauty of life and living when things are bad is what gives hope and makes you appreciate the good even more. I hope that Fred can come up with a good idea to help her. If anyone can, he will. I'm also glad that Ron is starting to come around. I hope that something good can happen with Lupin too. I'm really feeling sorry for him, but then, I've always been a Lupin fan. :)
Author's Response: *makes mental note to have something good happen to Lupin*
I am glad you like the plan. I thought about it for a long time before I decided on it. I remember speaking to Bridget about it, and she expressed her doubts quite rightly. It will be a tough one to pull off and so I am not going to rush it. If the story doesn't get compelted just yet, so be it, I want it to be right.
Thank you for your constant support. I aim to please, and I'm beginning to gain my confidence in the fic again.
Voldemort finally appearing makes me worried for Hermione, but the maternal instinct that she has should help a lot. Not much excitement in this chapter, but it is definitely leading to some more things! I look forward to the next chapter, esp. since this one ended in a sort of Cliffie!
So much happened in that chapter. Snape is so believable in that letter. He shows how much he cares, but doesn't try to be who he knows Hermione wants him to be. He is totally true to himself. I find it interesting the way he tries to protect Hermione, only to have it come to nothing with whoever it was that found her at the end of the chapter. I hope that he ends up saving her some way. I think he has that much in him. I wait anxiously for your next chapter!
Author's Response: Thank you. I can\'t really respond too well because next chapter explains some things, but you\'re right, he should rescue her. She deserves more than that letter.
Poor Neville. I think that Hermione is going a little mad, but then she has been acting totally against her nature. I hope that something good happens to her soon!!!
Author's Response: Thank you. Yes, she is going mad -- bless her! I think she needs some good news...
I think that you definitely succeeded in keeping Snape ambiguous. There is no way to know which side he is truly on.
For titles...that isn't my strongest part either...but for some reason, Wounded comes to mind. Hermione is wounded from what she did before (in abandoning her friends) and is wounded now by insecurity and having to live as a Death Eater, and everything she truly needs to end.
Author's Response: Thank you for your suggestion. I had to change tact immediatly with Snape having read HBP so I'm glad he still comes across as ambigious because I haven't yet decided what side I'm going to place him on (I really should do some forward planning!)
I just found your story. I must say that I find it very good. I love the tensions between Miranda and Hermione. I love that Hermione is still friends with Victor, and that Ron would still get jeolous of that. I'm glad that Ginny let her feelings for Ron out way her want of making Miranda jeolous. I don't like Miranda. She seems to be all about herself, and doesn't seem to care for Ron at all. Of course that will be part of what makes him go back to Hermione. I can see that the entire break up was really Miranda, and not Ron's idea. I like how Harry and Ginny are starting to pair back up. It is just a fun story to read. Hannah is soooo cute and has tons of character. Some people don't let kids get any. It was cool that Ron was there for her first bit of magic. He has missed so much of her life, though I totally understand the reasoning there. I look forward to reading more of this story!!!
Thank you for such a great story! It is great seeing how things were 10 years in the future. It was nice to see them so happy!
That was a great chapter! Miranda truly is clueless. Your goals have to be the same as your partners. One person seriously wanting children when the other one doesn't can become a big problem. I look forward to reading who was at the door.
It is great to see Hermione and Ron together. It is also nice to see how much Ron has grown up. It think that is definitely realistic and stays very true to the characters. :)
I like the way you are moving James and Lily forward, slowly, and we get to see their reactions! I like your futuristic Harry too...seems very grounded. Great father figure! :)
Author's Response: Thanks.
Great story. I like the way you keep us guessing about some things, and answer other things! Makes it a very interesting read! One of my questions about Millie ( and I know you're not telling yet) is who is her mom? :)
Author's Response: Actually I already answered that one in the story, when Harry is talking to Ron and Hermione about Millie's first time with them, so it's there for you to read already. Anyway, thank you for the review and I'm glad you enjoy the story.
That was a great story!! Thanks for the entertainment, and keeping true to the characters! :)
Author's Response: You are very welcome! Glad you enjoyed it!
Good Chapter! I can't wait to see what happens next, esp, when he tries to see the Death Eaters! :)
Author's Response: Yes, it should make for a good time, indeed. =)
Very interesting chapter! I'm still following the story! Nice twist there with Nicki being Barrington's daughter. :)
Author's Response: Thanks! =)
I have just caught up to your story and I have to say that I'm enjoying it. The heart ache that Fleur shows in this chapter is something that I can totally understand. I hope that she gets to hold her baby girl again and let her know what love truly is. I know for sure that Wendy has not known it since she was taken from her true parents. I look forward to seeing how the new trio will help Harry defeat Voldemort once and for all.
*tear* awwwwww heart wrenching, truly. I love how readers have some insight into what the evil character is feeling. Not that Wendy is evil.. or anything *looks sideways*
Yeah! Long live Harry! With Hermione and Ron's second child on the way, i doubt the "Golden Trio" will be the one's to help Harry! Ooh, you're a smart reader. Well done.-Steoh
Great story!!! I hope it isn't done yet!! I need to know what happens!!!
That was another great chapter! I'm glad that Nathan and Anna were able to get out and see that what they worked so hard to help Harry and Ginny with worked! Molly was GREAT! I think she doesn't get her due a lot of the time. She is just seen as the mother figure that waits at home. I think she has a lot more in her! Snape still has me guessing. The dagger adds even more questions. Wormtail was wonderful. It was nice that he saved Ginny to repay his debt. It is nice seeing Harry's and Ginny's love for each other grow. Love is indeed a powerful thing.
Author's Response: You know, I agree about Molly. I think she has lots more to her than just being a mom. Don't we all? :) And that dagger...hmmm...I will tell you that it will be an unanswered question when this story ends. That doesn't mean I won't ever answer it (as in should I decide to continue this tale). :) Thanks!
This part is just as good as the first part! It was great when they finished the circlet and had Lily, James, Catarina, and Dumbledore there to finish weaving the strands. It really does show how much love they have, with the living and the dead. I hope that Percy can get help fast enough. A head injury is nothing to laugh at! George and Fred give the comic relief, like normal! :) I do hope we get to see some more spirits in the tunnels. Sirius would be AWESOME! :) I will understand if there aren't any more though. I can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm sorry it had to be split up, but I'm glad you enjoyed both parts. A head injury is very serious business indeed! Another spirit is coming in the tunnels in the next chapter. Next chapter next week. :)
This was another great chapter. I like the long chapters. It is nice to sit down and just read. I don't mind the cliffies either. They just keep me wanting more!! I really can't wait to read the next section! I'm soooo glad that Anna and Nathan are together. Catarina's influence there was GREAT! I miss her wit! Fred and George were really cool also!! There dancing lines were so like them. Poor Neville!! He just can't keep his nose safe! LOL I look forward to part two!!
Author's Response: lol - thank you! It was nice to have Catarina back. I miss her, too. And yes, poor Neville! :)
Another great chapter. Everyone acted right on at that bonding ceremony. I hope that Anna and the baby stay ok!! I'm going to be worried about them, until they are ok!! Poor Nathan. This is not what he needed at this time. At least Harry and Ginny are almost ready to do their part. It would have been worse if Anna were taken before the bonding ceremony! I look forward to the next chapter!!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Anna's a strong one who is one of Gringott's best tomb raiders. Next chapter will be up after the holidays - my beta works retail. :)
