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!

Finally an update!! I'm soooo excited! This was a great chapter. I feel bad for Ginny having to endure Tom taking healing from her. I hope that doesn't have to last for too long. I hope that Fawkes is able to deliver the circlet. That has to be why Dumbledore stopped him from saving him. It also allows Dumbledore's spirit to join Lily, James and Sirius in grouping around Harry and Ginny and helping. I bet Cedric could be there too. They have too many people that love and care for them. Tom doesn't have any. He never let anyone be there and care for him. I love Anna's gumption. I hope that she and the baby gets away from the cave in without too much damage. I look forward to the next part of this story!
Author's Response: lol - yes, Tom is definitely on the lower end of the scale when it comes to love, isn't he?!
I was really glad when Ron hinted to Nathan that they needed to be touching! I knew that being in the same room was better then different, and I was wondering when someone would know they needed to touch! I had that figured out almost from the start. The nurse was great too! I bet that room really was glowing. I knew Nathan would figure it out when he was there, I just didn't think it would take Ron to nudge him! LOL All the visits were great. I loved the jelly stool when Bill sat on it. I really hope we get a couple more chapters to finish this story up, especially to see the baby born, at least. And the funeral.
Author's Response: I so wanted Ron to be the one. It just seemed fitting. I'm glad you enjoyed it!
That was a great chapter!! The Pansy/Draco scene was priceless!! I'm sooo glad that Ginny was able to trace Anna. I hope that she makes it through this with little damage! I also hope the baby stays ok. The tunnel scenes should be very interesting. I hope Snape gets his due!
Author's Response: An Snape...yes, his due is coming... :)
I haven't posted a review to you yet, because I wanted to catch up to the story. I am very much enjoying this!! Nathan and Anna are great characters. So was Catarina. They are very much alive in my imagination. I'm sooooo glad that Nathan has finally rid the world of Lucius. He got what he truly deserved. I hope that he doesn't suffer for too long before he can be healed! Anna attaching people to save her child was priceless, and what almost any mom would do. Joanna and Neville are the cutest couple, and I look forward to their bonding. I think they can really help Harry and Ginny in the final fight. Thanks for all the entertainment, and I really look forward to the forth coming chapters!
Author's Response: I'm so thrilled you like the OC's. I know some folks are pure canon readers which is great - but it's always nice to know when someone thinks the folks who also live in my mind are rather fascinating. So, thank you!
THANK YOU for an amazing story. I have really come to enjoy Anna and Nathan. I hope that someday, though it isn't in the forseeable future, you write more to this story. It would be amazing to see how things stand 10 years in the future. It would be great to see Nathan and Anna's, Ron and Hermione's, Harry and Ginny's, and Neville and Joanna's children. I also suspect there might be some children of Luna and Colin around. LOL. The proposal at the end was GREAT. Thank you for sticking with this story and making my imagination take flight. You have a way of making characters real and fulling taking your readers into their world. Once again, thanks!
Author's Response: You are very welcome! And thank you for the wonderful reviews. Hmm...10 years in the future...I hadn't thought about that. That could be interesting, couldn't it?! And yes, you caught the Luna/Colin bit? One of my betas is rooting for that couple. :) Thank you so much!
I actuall have heard the song that inspired this, and it makes me bawl everytime I hear it. So did this story. Thanks for the great read!
It was great seeing this story updated! Harry and Natilie are so cute together. I hope that The Moons are able to pull their marriage back together. I feel really sorry for Malia. I look forward to the next chapter!
Poor George!! I feel so bad for him and his three children. It will be a major blow to the kids. At least the rest of the family will be there for them. That is truly a loving family. At least Harry and Ginny had a little bit of time together before being interupted. That counts for a lot. I'm so glad that Ginny decided to move in with Harry. :) Cyns
I am so happy to see this story updated. I don't know if I can see Harry living in a place like that, just like Ginny couldn't. I hope that they talk goes well and they get a little romance also! I can't wait to read the rest of this date.
Author's Response: I hope they update it soon, but I have to warn all of you... I am going to be participating in NaNoWriMo, which means no updates until after December begins. I won\'t be writing anything but my original fiction for Nov. Sorry!
I LOVED when Natilie told Harry he was her daddy. I also loved when she told Ginny and Molly she told Harry. That is the type of things children that age would do! :) I was glad to see Molly tell Ginny she'd have to make her own decisions, since she wasn't really listening to any of her advise. I look forward to the next chapter!
Author's Response: I'm working hard on getting everything out, so just be patient!
I'm sooooo glad to have the Malia thing answered. I'm really enjoying this story and I'm looking forward to more! I loved when Natilie went to have Harry hold her! That was a definite AWWWWW moment! :)
I am so happy to see Harry and Ginny moving on and happy together!! Natilie was so cute in this chapter. I love her reaction to her gifts. I look forward to reading what happens next!
Great story! I'm anxiously waiting for more!! :) I have a few guesses, but sounds like some of them will be confirmed or nullified soon!
I LOVED this chapter. It was great that Harry was able to see the the heart of things and realize that Ginny wasn't as ready for things as he was. It was very insightful of him and I'm sure it did Ginny tons of good too. I'm glad that he knows what Micheal put Ginny through. I wouldn't want to be around if he ever runs into Micheal though, hehe. I look forward to the next chapter!!!
I'm really enjoying the story. I do hope that Harry remembers to help Ron with the wedding stuff! I think that Harry is as much a Weasley as everyone else. I'm glad that you feel the same way!
I loved this chapter! You did a great job at writing the Quidditch match. I don't know why you were so worried. I'm glad that Harry was ok after falling. The end where Harry carries Ginny of was perfect! :) Cyns
That was a fun story, since it was so different from what is written a lot. I like that you really made Gran feel more human, but gave a good reason why she would seem so distant from Neville. The rambling really made it seem like an old lady talking. It was touching when she saw Alice and Frank for the first time. Letting Neville sleep the night through was very generous of her. It seemed to be part for his sake, and part for her sake, but it totally made sense.
I think I like Gurf. He seems just like Ginny! I can't wait to see what else Harry and the guys have in store for the evening. I hope that Ron gets his leg set before it does permanant damage. I look forward to the next chapter, and the skirmish to come!
Author's Response: Chapter 19 is in the queue. It should answer some of the questions. The kitten does exist, although I am not sure about siblings. He\'s now a year and a half old, and still all kitten. I\'m so glad you are enjoying the story. Thank you for reviewing.
I think that I like Develin for the kitten's name! I really like him. :) I know what you mean about detecting the Imperious Curse. So many people went free in the first war by using that excuse. I like your spell to prove or disprove it. I also loved George and Fred coming up with the wands for Dudley and Petunia to use. I'm sure that they had fun coming up with the idea. I look forward to seeing how the other two (Remus and Ron) did at their tables!
Author's Response: I even have a marketing plan for the wands, I just have to think up a name. It\'s and idea I have been stewing over for Squibs and Muggles marrying into the Wizarding World. They always seem so left out, ya know? I\'m working on Chapter 20, but there may be a small delay. Dr\'s orders, I have to seriously limit my time at the computer for a week or two. But I will get the chapter out ASAP! Thanks for the great review Cheslin.
What a fun Chapter. I like seeing Hermione not being the best at EVERYTHING also!! I think all the forms fit, and I look forward to seeing them try to actually become them! I also hope you do a little more with the party. It is a great time to have small interactions that are touching and such! I look forward to more, and hope your back is feeling better soon!
