I am now 27 years old, have been married for five years (no children yet!) , and I am an English teacher in the Dallas area. I first became interested in Harry Potter when I was a senior in high school and the addiction has slowly grown worse through the years! :) I especially became addicted to mugglenet when I was working on my master's degree because I needed a getaway from all of my stress! I don't know if I'll write anything soon, but I might try to in the future. I have all these stories in my head, but I just don't have the time to get them down yet! I love all the fan fics though! You all are great writers! :)
Ooooh! This is getting good! I hate the fact that Hermione is still married, though! She should kick Ian out of her life for good, if you ask me. Anyway, great chapter! Can't wait for the next! :)
Wow! What a twist! I hope Hermione can get over her amnesia. Poor thing! I really liked the way you described Hermione coming out of her coma though, especially the memories of her with Ron. Great chapter! Hope you update soon! :)
Author's Response: Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it.
Oh, how spooky! I've enjoyed this story so far. The conflict between Ron and Hermione is great, and I love all the parts about Harry and Voldemort too. Can't wait to see what happens next! :)
Well Ron and Hermione are certainly driving me crazy with their attitudes in this story. And I hate Lavender too! I like the suspense of the last chapter as well. Cute story! Hope you update soon!
Author's Response: I know I haven\'t updated. The queue got all backed up and I had to send in the next chapter again.
Awww! I love the sweetness and awkwardness between Ron and Hermione, and the way you write makes it seem like it could have come right out of HBP. I always wished J.K. Rowling would have included a little more about Ron and Hermione. They're defnitely my favorite couple in the HP series! :)
Wow! Great chapter! I wanted Ron and Hermione to kiss so badly! Although, I sort of feel sorry for Michael and Claudia. Maybe you should hook the two of them up in the next chapter. lol :) Anyway, this has to be one of my favorite chapters so far. And one thing I like about this story is all the details you give even down to what each person is wearing. (I really want Hermione's dress, by the way) :) Well, I can't wait to read more! Update soon!!!
Author's Response: I feel so flattered! :D I gave Hermione that dress for a reason; it was my prom dress and I felt like a princess in it. Thanks so much for reviewing! (My best friend, who happens to be named Claudia ;), is going to \"lol\" when I tell her about your suggestion.)
Oh my word! What an ending! Do you know this is the first story I read on Mugglenet, and it is definitely still my favorite. I think you have done such a fabulous job throughout this story of creating characters that we can really love, hate, cheer for, etc. And Michael's character is especially well-written because he has so many internal conflicts and flaws. Anyway, back to the chapter, it flows beautifully from the other chapters and you do a really nice job of conveying the confusion and grief of Hermione. I really liked the ending too! I actually gasped when I read that part! :) Keep writing! Can't wait to see what happens next!
Author's Response: :D I am so glad you like it so much!! I am very flattered. I'll keep writing but you keep reading!
Oh my goodness! Yeah, I agree with you. This has definitely been my favorite chapter so far too! Wow! I loved the part where Hermione found the photograph of her and Ron, and I loved the flashback too. And I really don't feel sorry for Michael. Really, he had it coming. Although, it did seem that he was trying to change. Anyway, I loved this chapter and I can't wait to read the next one! Update soon! :)
Author's Response: Thanks for that!
Aghhh! I can't wait until the next chapter! I feel like I'm watching an exciting episode of "Grey's Anatomy" only with my favorite HP characters. lol Loved the chapter! Keep on writing! :)
Author's Response: I\'m flattered. I love \"Grey\'s Anatomy.\" :P
Well, I have to say that I have enjoyed this story since the first time I read it back in summer of '07. And it just keeps getting better and better! :) I'm definitely having mixed feelings about Michael now. I know he's been a royal jerk, but it seems that he's trying to make everything up to Hermione. I'm still a big fan of Ron, though. I hope we see him in the picture very soon! :)
Author's Response: Wow, it\'s been such a long time since I first posted this! I\'m glad you\'ve been enjoying it. I\'ve put a lot of effort and time into it and I completely love what I\'ve gotten so far. And I am definitely glad you are getting mixed feelings about Michael. That\'s what I\'m trying to create. Mixed feelings. I\'m falling in love with him, to be honest.
Oh my goodness!! I totally did not see the end of that chapter coming! I should have seen it coming with the clues in the chapter though. I have a feeling that Michael left because he knows Hermione doesn't love him the way she loves Ron, and he probably wants her to be happy now too, which makes him a pretty decent guy actually. Believe me, I've been going back and forth throughout this whole story of who I like: Michael or Ron. Of course, I love Ron ahd Hermione together, but Michael had some qualities too. (Well, besides the affair thing). Anyway, I loved loved loved this chapter and I cannot wait to see what happens next! I think this story is definitely my favorite out of all the fanfiction I've read. Keep it up! :)
Author's Response: Michael is a pretty decent guy, and it was hard to kill him off. I grew fond of him after I started writing. I'm glad you liked it and I can't wait to show you all what's coming next.
Okay, I think I just realized that I took "gone" the wrong way! So, Michael's dead? or did he just "leave"? I need some clarification here! lol :)
Author's Response: He's definitely dead, darling. And you're not the only one who thought he left ;)
When Hermione doesn't turn up for the group's ten year reunion at Hogwarts, Ron becomes suspicious about why Hermione is too busy to be there. But what he discovers is beyond what he ever imagined.
After seeing each other again nine years later, can Ron and Hermione find the love they shared once again?
NOTE: THIS STORY IS NOT ENTIRELY COMPLETED. IT IS TEMPORARILY STOPPED, BUT WILL BE RETURNED TO IN THE FUTURE.
Oh my goodness!! I hate cliff-hangers! I hope you update soon. :) I've really enjoyed this story and can't wait to see what happens next! I hope Ron can get over his anger and forgive Hermione. I love those two together! :)
Author's Response: A lot of people hate cliff-hangers, though I really enjoy them!! :) I\'m glad you\'re enjoying this story, and I think we\'re all hoping (even me) that Ron and Hermione are ok in the end...You\'ll just have to wait and see!! Thanks for reading!! :D
So who is the "one person" Ron doesn't want to see? I'm so intrigued now! Hope you update soon! Great story!
Author's Response: Ahh, you will just have to wait and find out next chapter. I'm glad you're intrigued, it means I'm doing something right! I will update as soon as the next chapter is completed, thanks for reading!! :D
Wow! I definitely think this chapter is my favorite. I love how you captured the passion and chemistry between Ron and Hermione! Is it hot in here? lol
Author's Response: Thanks so much for your review! I\'m really glad that you liked the chapter because it can be incredibly hard to write about these characters in the future and try to be accurate in making them mature adults.
Wow! I definitely wasn't expecting that ending, but then again, how could Harry not break when his mother was asking him all those questions? Great chapter! Can't wait to see what's next!
Ooooh. What a foreboding ending to the chapter! I'm really liking the twists and turns of this story. Having Harry tell his parents seems very natural because it is something that is certainly weighing heavy on his mind. Also, the scenes between Harry and Ginny are so sweet, and I'm very glad that Harry's being a gentlemen with Ginny. Although, I wonder how long it will last? lol Anyway, great job on the chapter! But, I'm wondering, what ever happened to Ron and Hermione? :)
Awww! I love all the preparations before a wedding. It reminds me of my own wedding. :) Sweet chapter! Can't wait to read about the ceremony!
Author's Response: I hope you enjoy the ceremony chapter even though it's too terribly long overdue. Thanks for the review :)
Wow! What a great story! I actually read this fic after I read "The Next Bend" because I wanted to find out how some of the things that happened came to be. And believe me, this story sucked me in just like the last one. You are truly a great writer! I think the way you handled the scenes with Ron and Hermione was really true to both of their characters. I've always thought of Hermione as an independent and smart woman and Ron always seems to want to protect her too. So, great job there! And I also loved the chemistry between Harry and Aurora. Although I'm a big fan of Harry and Ginny, I really did feel for Aurora too. And the sequel to this story makes so much more sense now to me now that I've read this one.
Overall, I loved the way this story kept pulling me along and making me want to read more to find out what would happen next. Now I know why I love the sequel to this story so much! :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words! I loved writing both parts, and I\'m so happy you did as well. Hopefully, the sequel will have another chapter up in a couple of days! Take care. aurorahope
Oh my word!!!!! Okay, so is Daisy really the killer or is it Irene? I got a little confused with all the scene changes! And is Parvati really dead? I don't want her to be because I really have grown to like her and Harry together. I have so many questions now! Hope you can update soon!
Author's Response: Haha. That's for you to find out later, hon. I can't tell you who the killer is, can I? :D And yeah, sadly, Parvati is dead. No loopholes. :( Thanks for reviewing! I'll update as soon as I can. :)
