My late father used to say, "For every Jock there's a Jeanie".
So good to see the saying come true with Luna and Rolf.
They were made for each other, lovely story.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
A nice (and very Scottish) saying I’ve never heard before.
I tried to make them a good fit. Luna certainly recognised a kindred spirit.

Very convincing story, we know that Tom went down some very strange roads trying to cheat death.
Like the idea of Camelia becoming less evil because of her contact with good and bad.

Author's Response: Thanks
The idea that Tom would consider becoming a vampire was one I really wanted to explore.
Camelia somehow managed to take control of the story. Can she mend her ways?

Well done! Harry and Ron were bound to try it out one day, it's a bit like identical twins,difficult to resist trying to confuse your partners.
Only Luna can see through it naturally though.

Author's Response: Thank you. It took a surfeit of wine and an ill-considered bet, but yes. And Ginny is, in my opinion, very competitive. She would not want to lose. -N-

I was worried about Hermione, so glad it turned out well.
Thanks for another addition to the story.

Troth by Northumbrian

Lavvy indeed, you couldn't resist it.
Always good to hear more about Lavender and Mark.

That was great!
Being even older than Harry's parents, I particularly enjoyed the inclusion of Steeleye Span one of my favourite bands.

Author's Response:
Thank you.
That’s not old! I was researching 70’s punk for a much darker story, and suddenly realised that Lily was a folk-rock fan, and this story arrived.
Any idea where I can get my hands on the reggae version of Spotted Cow?

ps Saw the Richard Thompson gig for the closure of Television Centre. Swarbrick looked really old and frail, but he can still play that fiddle.

Fluff but very well written fluff about characters we know and love.
Thanks for brightening my morning.
ps can only find the usual version of Spotted cow.

Author's Response: Thanks.
My first attempt at a Victoire/Teddy story, glad you liked it.
Perhaps I simply dreamt hearing Span doing a reggae version.

Poor Mary, we are never really told exactly what happened to her at Hogwarts.
Did her new life work out or was she doomed to meet Mulciber again?
Great story.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
This was the abusive end to a relationship, not its beginning. I’d like to think that Mary made it.

Summary: New Year's Eve, (or Hogmanay if you prefer). What sort of imbecile thinks it's a good idea to give a married man with two kids, and a very pregnant wife, a love potion?
