Channeling Phlegm at the moment, please bear with me as I try to avoid turning into Bridezilla.
To my fans I would like to say that I am back to writing, and I have now updated many of the chapters! Some changes are just grammer edits, but there are many adds and changes to chapters. Some based on your reviews or small things I felt needed to be added. Please take a look at the changes and let me know what you think. I am looking forward to hearing what you have to say about the changes and up comeing chapters.
*holds out left hand in the shape of a mitten* High Five! Glad you got this chapter up so quickly. Harry as the head of the order...hmm. Well lets just say I think he has the experience from leading the DA, but will probably still need help from some of the adults. Great job! 10/10!
And for all you non-Michiganders, I was giving Sorn a high five Michigan style. If you are STILL confused, grab a map!
Author's Response: *returns Hight five* I am very suprised that you did not do the first to review dance! I agree that Harry has the experience to lead and I think that at the end of HBP we see the beginings of what it takes to be a leader. Just like a Troll to for get the rest of the state! LOL. As I am a transplanted troll I guess I can forgive you.
What can I say? I liked this chapter, especially since Harry insisted Ginny stay for the meeting, and since Ginny is now more confused than ever. Have a biscuit Sorn. 10
Author's Response: What can I say? I love that you like this chapter. Harry and Ginny have a ways to go. Ok I will make tea and you can enjoy tee and biscuts togather.
*first review dance* Great job on this chapter! I like how you included Ginny's POV. And A+ on Harry's generosity to the Weasleys. 10/10!
Author's Response: *First reviewer dance* Thank you! Well Ginny will play a big part in my story, so her POV is needed. I really feel that the Weasleys had it coming, no one deservers it more. *I got a 10 dance*
*pets Cosmo* Great chapter, although I had pointed out to you before I thought you should have used bathing suit instead of swimming costume!
Author's Response: Thank you! As far as Bathing suit and swimming costume, Nat said swimming costume. As Nats' a Brit I took her advise over yours. Sorry.
The Cosmo/Arnold scene was cute and funny, but I'm not sure if Harry would have been so understanding of Neville's grief. You did good, it just didnt click in my head.
Author's Response: I am glad you liked the Cosmo/Arnold scene at least. I 'm not sure Harry was really all that understanding. I saw him as a bit cold.
Bribes for brothers to not be a bother! I liked that you had Fred and George being Ginny's (immediate) protectors. Usually people go with Ron, but I liked how Ginny backed them down. Nicely done.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I really like writing the interaction with everyone. I felt that I could not use Ron as he had just had a fight with Harry. To be honest I would fear Fred and George over Ron any day. I would recomend remembering Ginny backing them down as it could have an impact later in the story.
Yay! Umbridge is in Azkaban! Nicely done, can't wait to see what Harry is going to ask malfoy!
Author's Response: Yay! one of my fav's (author & Reviewer) Thanks for the review sweety. I plan to get back to reading your talented works soon. I have a lot of storys to get caught up on. *hugs*
Have to agree with panda, loved Harry playing good cop bad cop. I'm very curious as to what Percy wants, but January 2 isn't that far away... Merry Christmas, Happy New year!
Author's Response: I a glad to see everyone agreeing. I was a bit unsure how well it would go over. As far as what Percy wants, that will likly end up being the last thing wirtin even though it is the first to happen. Marry Christmas, and Happy New Year to you!
Hmmmm, a door that only Harry can get through.....Hope Ginny's hand and foot are ok.....and a new phoenix! (and a new wand!) Nice chapter, Mss Come here cocoa approves!
Author's Response: LOL, I think your new nick name may stay!! One or two quick spells and Ginny will be fine. Yes a new phoenix is born... born, but I am not getting into deatils just yet. Thats for the great review.
Ah yes, the little known Michigan troll, ready to review stories for goats that live in the U.P.! The most intelligent species of troll, can actually read and review, not to mention write their own stories! And back by popular demand, *belated first review dance*
Author's Response: You know that most people will have know kdea what we a talking about. I must say you are a very smart troll as your stories are great!
*Genny's jaguar patronus brings review in a jet of silver light* Hmmm, I hope Percy makes the right choice! I can't wait to see what Ron says about the new broom! And what Harry will do about Aunt Petunia. Good chapter, I was happy to see Oliver!
Author's Response: Well I know that writing Percy is a bit hard for me, my contempt seems to get in the way. As for Ron you already know, first he will be happy then he will think of the money and be sad. Then someone will give him a verbal slap on the head and he will be happy again. The question is not so much what Harry will do but what is going to happen when when Harry tries to help. You're right is was good to see Oliver, but it was even better to see your review!
Liquid Luck. I must have taken some to be the first to review. Another great chapter, I would have bought plenty of books for my room, and some nice thick rugs. I've overdone it on the cookies, so have some *firewhiskey* instead! 10
Author's Response: Well since we review a lot of the same stories I am begining to think you sit in wait for new chapters to go up so you can review. I would have bought out fred and Georges for my room! Thanks for the bottle of Firewhiskey I will save it for tonight, and showing up for class drunk is not a very good idea!
Oooh, cliffie with the suitcase! Ginny was perfect in this chapter! Glad to see you updated!
Author's Response: Yea it\'s a little suitcase cliffie. I am gald you liked Ginny in this chapter. The exchange between Harry and Ginny. was hard to write. I hope to up date again soon.
Awww, I loved the mother/daughter moment! This was a really sweet chapter, can't wait to see whats next, especially the wedding!
Author's Response: Thanks and Yes, I kind of enjoyed that part also. I think that Mrs. Weasley's relationship with Ginny would be slightly different than with her sons. At least that's my own experience with my own son & daughter. Maybe I'm just projecting :)
This was a good chapter, but I have to nitpick. Cho and Marietta were a year above Harry, so they shouldn't be at Hogwarts anymore. Maybe you could have some sort of explanation for bringing them back. Also, when Harry interrupts Prof. McBride's lesson, you switch back and forth between fourth and fifth years. I know you put the explanation about the NEWT level classes, but it's a bit confusing...
Author's Response: Thanks! You're right about the two students, that was a mistake. However I didn't see the fourth-fifth year swaps, but I'll look again. :)
Author's Response: It's been a long day, found it. Thanks for keeping me on my toes!
Sniff, soooo romantic! I loved that they were playing mummies and daddies. Great job! 10/10!
Author's Response: Romance is what i was aiming for so thank goodness i achieved it. Thank you for the ten, i'm very grateful for it!
It will be interesting to see where snape is going to hide the malfoys. Good start so far.
I like the story, but has Harry turned 17 yet?
Can't wait to see what Forge and Gred try to pull. Update soon!
