This is really interesting.
You have got Ron's character spot on.
It's good to get it from his point of view.
Author's Response: Thank you kindly!
I like this, sounds just like Arthur.
You've summed up his character very well.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Arthur doesn't say much, but he thinks a lot. -N-
Great story, you go from strength to strength.
Small point, I think new born babies have blue eyes that change to their final colour in a few weeks.
Author's Response: Thanks. Most (not all) ethnic European babies have blue (or grey) eyes. Iím fairly certain that the chance of James being born with brown eyes is about 2% (not much, but itís good enough odds for a work of fiction Ė look at it as being 20,000 times more likely than a million to one chance (-: ). Fred and Roxanneís chance is a LOT higher. -N-
That was great and it does make sense.
Poor Remus, you really got inside his head.
Author's Response: Thank you! I really tried to, so I'm quite happy you liked it.
Great a story about Fred and George!
Super start, really draws you in.
Looking forward to the next chapter.
Author's Response: Thank you. This (in case you hadn't guessed) relates events alluded to in the early chapters of Grave Days. -N-
That was great!! It just sounds so right.
You have the true voice and spirit of the twins.
Thanks for giving Fred the last word.
Author's Response: This was fun (if a little sad) to write. My farewell to Fred fic. Fred got the last word in the epilogue because I gave George the last word in the prologue. N
Very well written, as usual from Northumbrian.
Will we get to find out what happens in Whitby?
Author's Response: I have started chapter 2 of this one-shot. Moving the action to Whitby, but Iíve stopped. Iím halfway through one novel length fic (Aurors and Schoolgirls and I have two more part-written. Starting another would be madness. N
It was me who deleted the spoiler.
You were quite right to point it out.
I'll try to be more careful in future.
Author's Response: Hi Thanks (-: This type of first person pov story always causes me probelms as even something as sinple as the category can give away part of the puzzle (who is the narrator?) to readers. The problem is that a lot of people (me included) like to know what and who they are reading about. I often read reviews first. If the reviewer says (for example): it was a shock when Ginny died at the end that's a fairly major spoiler. But, as a writer, I love to read reviews, even critical ones. I can appreciete how difficult it can be to give feedback without giving plot points away, So thanks, and I hope that my original reply did not offend. (-: N)
Great chapter, good to see Ginny and Harry getting over their problem and seeing Ginny getting something wrong.
Also nice to see Nev and Hannah getting closer.
Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Iíve seen many stories where Ginny is little miss perfect. She isnít. Hannah and Neville? Neville has a girl so will they, wonít they? N
Great start. Good to see Ginny and Hermoine getting some ordinary school experiences after their ordeals the of previous year.
Author's Response: Thanks Ordinary school experiences, unfortunately, donít make for much of a storyÖ N
That was a great chapter.
Loved Harry referring to Snape as Professor Snape and Minerva saying that Dumbledore would have enjoyed it.
So good to see the House Elves there too.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Calling Snape Professor is a big step forward for Harry. -N-
Ginny is so good for Harry, it's lovely to see them happy.
Thanks for another great chapter.
What's Fenella up to? Time will tell.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
Harry and Ginny's relationship continues to move forward.you'll be seeing Fenella soon.
Enjoyed it as a one shot but this is even better.
Loved the ambiguity at the beginning of the chapter.
Author's Response: Thank you. This chapter was deleted in it's entirety to make the story fit as a one-shot. The last chapter had a decent ending, this is better (I think). The ambiguity at the beginning was deliberate. N
Great to read more about Lavender.
Loved the Edinburgh setting, very authentic.
Author's Response: Thanks This will be the last of my Lavender tales for a while. I may be English, but Edunburgh is about 200 miles closer to me than London (and it's a nicer city). N
That was lovely.
I never thought that I'd be happy for Draco but I am now.
Author's Response: Well, I never thought I'd write sympathetically about Draco either ... ha ha. Thanks for the review ~Carole~
Enjoyed this, I read all three chapters this morning.
It's good to see George getting some hope and even regaining his sense of humour.
Nicely resolved and, "All done in the best possible taste" as dear old Kenny Everett used to say.
Author's Response: Thanks, this is an editted version, the original was slightly ruder. I'm unlikely to write anything as smutty as this again. -N-
Really enjoying this series showing the battle from lots of points of view.
The characterisation is excellent and in canon as we have come to expect from you.
Thank you for taking the time to write such good stories.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. As the Battle continues you will see: more Original Character stories (there will be four), plus three from the point of Slytherin students. These stories are a lot shorter than most of my stuff, but they provide useful background for these characters in my future history. -N-
That was inspired!
Never thought I'd feel sorry for Draco.
Very funny, but it all fits in so well with DH and it is so Draco.
Well done yet again.
Thank you. I've always though that Draco was pitiful. (-: Make the most of the cruel humour. The next few chapters are far from funny. N ps you'll hear the Neville Ginny conversation in full in chapter 21.
Another great chapter, you can't see the joins, it could be part of DH.
Lovely to have a whole chapter about Neville.
Still think about him in his bunny slippers in Book 1. Great to see how he has grown.
Liked the references to earlier chapters.
Always a good day when the name Northumbrian appears.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review and the kind words. Neville (and Ron, I believe) did a lot of growing up in DH. Neville is one of my favourite characters and he deserves a lot more love. -N-
