Summary: Voldemort's rising reign of terror, NEWTs, death attempts, a Headship, a tangled affair with James Potter, hilarity, grief, love, secrecy, maddness... it's almost hard to believe that I've survived to graduate. I am Lily Evans, and this is my 7th year.
I have been watching your livejournal site since you announced a new chapter on May 28th. However, it seems like the chapter didn't out itself yet. Please, pleaseplase, have mercy on us and share your beautiful words with us.
Any chance of an update? Please don't drop this story!
It's fall and the days look gray, I could do with some Black and White ... update soon!
Ah, thanks for the newest chapter. Honestly, the confrontation is very good, but I didn't go for the writing style of the chapter intro. No dialogue, only omniscient observer narrative. It is much better to discover what the characters are doing by following the twists and turns of their dialogues, instead.
Still, an enjoyable chapter. Much success with your studies and glad to hear another chapter should come soon.
When will black and White finally become checker board? Please update!!!!!

Heartwarming. Holly must finally find some piece after very worrisome months.
Holly is very mysterious. First she disappears in the darkness of time for an eternity, then she suddenly pops out of teh chapter coming at an unexpected but opportune time, and then she recedes again in the darkness of wizard space time.
Can you bring Holly back for more? Soon?
Author's Response: Gah I feel so bad! Im starting to work on the new chapter today- hopefully it'll come back to me! I wont abandon Holly! *is so sorry*
Yay, we can't wait!
Author's Response: Just to let everyone knoww (or whoever stumbles across this) ive got one more scene left in the chapter to finish off- and then the first draft is done, so I am writing again! It shouldnt be too long, thank you to everyone who has stuck with this story! *hugs*
Holly is so mysterious, we don't even know when she'll make another chapter appearance -- but we can't wait; please update!
Summary: In the aftermath of the Battle of Hogwarts, the survivors must move on to rebuild the wizarding world. However, a new threat is rising, putting at risk the tentative gains made by Harry and his friends.
Finally, we got to read our missing chapter we were waiting for so long. Your writing is very good, please don't make us wait that long again.
Author's Response: My apologies. I've had many, many other things on my plate over the past several months, but hopefully I can get back on track and complete chapters on a more regular basis. I'm hoping to have another chapter completed by the time the queue reopens, but no promises. I thank you for your continued patience and the review.
I join you in our common sdaness. I hope the author changes his or her mind about having abandoned this story.
Author's Response: I haven't yet abandoned this tale, although it is on hiatus while I work on other projects, including recovering from cancer. However, Harry and his friends have been on my mind more and more as of late and I can feel the beginnings of a new chapter swirling around in my mind. I appreciate all your patience and hope you will indulge me a little longer.
Summary: The Dursleys have left Privet Drive and are in hiding with Hestia Jones and Dedalus Diggle. Hestia and Mr. Dursley are constantly fighting, Petunia is avoiding the wizards at all costs, and Dedalus is trying to make them all the best of friends. Meanwhile, Dudley discovers he has an interest in Harry's world, but his parents are less than pleased when they find out.
Oh wow, thanks for the new chapter. Dudley makes himself useful, but stays somewhat in-characterly clueless - good.
Please, update soon, we want to know who the secret wizard was.
You know, I thought that your portrayal of the Prophet articles was too factual, too serious, out of character.
Until ... until, that is, you inserted the following:
When Ginny Weasley, a fourth-year whose ankle was broken in the fray, was asked for a comment, she replied, “You dunderheads should have listened to Harry a year ago!”
ROTFL. Excellent chapter, I look forward to the next update, with impatience
Author's Response: thanks, I'm glad you like it!
Any chance of an update? Please don't drop this story!
Sorry it's been so long! I'm not dropping it, I've just been so busy, but the next chapter is submitted and just waiting to be validated!
Dudley side-along Apparating!? It's hillarious, though you're threading dangerous OC territory here.
He surely matured, though. I wonder where they are.
Dudley wasn't intentionally Apparating, so I think it's believable. And this is somewhere Jo has taken us in the books before, try thinking of Order of the Phoenix! :)
Great as ever. Is it Neville who apparated in the field? Can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thanks!
I just have this crazy idea: Did the door close, not because Dudders is unbeknownst to himself a wizard, but because Vernon is one, and, since he didn't get to go to Hogwarts for whatever reason, he has been bitter about it ever since.
The third option, of Petunia being a witch, is unavailable; runs counter to cannon.
