Winner of the 2011 Best Chaptered Alternate Universe QuickSilver Quill Award!
really love the story.... but the thing with snape being released, ur writing gives me the sense of Colm being the traitor... maybe its just me but the way you portray him makes him seem like he would be the one. just a thought, cant wait till the next one
Author's Response: Thanks so much! That's a good theory--it really could be anyone; Lottie can't even trust those closest to her.
Thanks for the review!Eponine
Summary: My take on the first of those 'nineteen years' between the 36th chapter of DH and the epilogue.
Warnings: contains an unusually-shaped ring, a nosy neighbour, a rude shop assistant, shaving mishaps, thoughtful gestures, threatening goblins, and, unexplained appearances of Romantic!Ron and Romantic!Harry. You have been warned.
Rating is for *mild* innuendo and *mostly* innocent interactions but I wouldn't let my 9 year old read it.
and the award for Most Valuable Author goes to cjbaggins
Author's Response: Awww...you are soooo sweet. I\'m blushing here. Thanks so much for your kind words. Stay tuned for the next chappie. cj
Jeez I guess u are a busy person...cool that the next chapter is almost out though, I was getting bored. lol
Author's Response: Yeah. Pretty busy. Off to work on chapter 7 ... cj
I have a question: How many chapters do u plan on devoting to the first few months after the Battle? In your summary you said ur take on the 19 years in between, but u say its going to take at least 10 or 11 chapters before Harry even proposes, so if ur doing key points and developing them then its going to be pretty long. But as I say only a question, not trying to write ur story for u. Love ur story. Hoping for a fast update and ur back is feeling better. AV.
P.S. How's ur hubby doing, you said he was in the hospital for something? jw
Author's Response: Hi there! You actually had me go back and look at my summary to see what I'd written for it. I was worried I'd actually put "my take on the 19 years". I was going to tell you to go back and read it again (can you tell I'm in education?), but I'll save you the trouble. It actually reads "my take on the first of the 19 years". *phew* I'm relieved I wrote what I wanted it to say. My back is much much better, thank you for asking. It only gets sore if I sit for very long times now. And my hubby is back home and feeling fine as well. We've been camping these last two weeks and it was lovely to have him with us, that's for sure! He had been very ill and we were all worried about him. cj
srry if I misunderstood you but the next chapter will be out before Sunday?
Author's Response: I probably wasn\'t very clear. I will *submit* the next chapter before Sunday. It will then need to be validated. Sorry for the wait! I have another story in the queue right now. Hopefully that will be up soon, it\'s been almost 2 weeks. I know the queue is super-busy right now. cj
Its like Jo wrote this, its so good. I wish the author would hurry it up and finish though
Author's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words. I\'m blushing. I\'m thrilled that you are eager for me to finish but please be patient. I am a busy wife, mother, full time educational assistant, part time volunteer breastfeeding counsellor, and part time student. I do not get nearly as much time to write as I would like. I will say, though, that I will have the next chapter submitted before this week is out. Thanks for reading and reviewing! cj
Is It in the queue yet?? just wondering
Author's Response: Yes, it is. I submitted on either Saturday or Sunday, can\'t remember which. Cross your fingers for a speedy acceptance! cj
When I say 10 or 11 chapters I meant chapters 10 and `11. Just wanted that to be cleared up.
Author's Response: No worries. I understood. And to clarify my last response - I'm just doing the first of those 19 years, so when I get to the end of the year, that's the end of my story, more or less. cj
Author's Response: I know! cj
Jeez they're pretty slow!!!!!!
Author's Response: Yeah. I know it\'s hard to wait. I just keep reminding myself that they\'re pretty busy mods. I\'m sure it\'ll be up soon. cj
So hows chapter 7 going?
Author's Response: not good I\'m afraid. family member admitted to hospital today. no writing for me! cj
