Channeling Phlegm at the moment, please bear with me as I try to avoid turning into Bridezilla.
Summary: After the trauma of his sixth year Harry and his friends enter into their last year of magical education at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The trio try to balance passing their exams with fighting Voldemort and planning their futures. Despite all that, romance will fill the air with wedding bells ringing out. This year Harry is in more danger than ever when his enemy finds new ways to try and get the Boy Who Lived. Voldemort’s presence will be felt more than ever as he steals more lives; can Harry find himself before its too late? And what adventures will he have along the way?
If you haven’t read Harry Potter and The Girl Who Lived then I would strongly urge you to do so because if you don’t then this story probably won’t make any sense to you. Be helpful to writers by Reading and Reviewing!
The very last chapter of this fic has been reworked. Please re-read there's more about the kids in there! Also my author's notes on the final chapter have also been added. Ten part fic related to this going up shortly!!
I'm still crying! *grabs the box of tissues* Nat, you have a way with words! Ellie's ok! and Harry and Ginny are officially engaged! Whooo-hooo! *in best McGonnagall voice* "Well done MrsGeorgeWeasley"
The explanation for why Ellie can pop all over the castle was cool, but I just wanted to point out that Dumbledore found out about the map at the end of Harry's fourth year. Barty Crouch confessed that he used Potter's map to watch for his father. Other than that, YAY! they found Ginny! no tissues!
Okay Nat, where was Susan's letter? *wags finger* Did you forget Harry and Ron were finally allowed to pick Neville and Susan up? Okay, on to the review! Yippee! Ellie's having a baby! I laughed at all the twins comments, it would be funny if they had twins! And I loved Molly yelling at Ron for having his hands on Hermione's assets. Great job! *passes Nat some chocolate*
Oh, I loved getting a peek into the future! Definitely write that fic! I cried at the description of all the pictures. You did an awesome job! I only have one thing left to say: TISSUE!
I had my tissue ready just in case. Mass tragedies like this are always terrible. For Harry to have experienced it, even as a dream, must have been, for lack of a better word, horrible. And for it to be on his birthday, that makes it even worse. You did a really good job writing this chapter.
Author's Response: It is a terrible thing and it ruined what had been a wonderful day. I can't wait to see what you think of the next couple of chapters!
Nat, loved the chapter, no tissue needed :) The birthday presents were well thought out, and I love how Harry argued with Ellie about the inheiritance. A+, two thumbs up, and a gold star on your forehead.
Author's Response: Another chapter where no tissue was necessary, aren't you starting to feel very lucky? A+, 2 thumbs up AND a gold star? Wow, you really liked it, didn't you?
I don't know where to start! Wait wait, with the *first reviewer dance* TWO tissues, one for tears of laughter, one for sad tears. Mrs. Weasley whacking Forge and Gred over the head with her broom was hilarious! (weren't they great in GoF?) I cried when Ellie, Harry and Remus were at the grave, very fitting family motto. Then the party in the tower, every time I hear that song, I will picture Weasleys dancing around the Gryffindor common room. Just because you did such a great job, I'm making you brownies, AND I'll even let you lick the bowl! Not everyone is that special! 10!
Author's Response: *points and laughs at Genny's dancing* As long as there were some tears of laughter, I'm happy. I still adore Fred and George and yes they were absolutely brilliant in GOF. I can't lay claim to that family motto, it comes from the Sapphie HP Family quiz. Now everytime i watch My Fair Lady i get this picture of the twins flingin a bottle about, very funny image it is too. Brownie? YAY! MY FAVOURITE! *rushes over to lick the bowl* DELICIOUS! Thank you!
Lots of action and not a tissue to be found! I needed one too when Ellie came out of Remus' room. The spells were cool, thanks for the translations at the end of the chapter.
Author's Response: Another tissueless chapter! I don't like my readers to be sitting there wondering what the hell it was that they did to the DE's so that's why i included the translations
Yay for Neville, standing up to Draco! Lipstick sized trunks, why didn't I think of that? Hope the trunks didn't get lost under some tissue in Ellie's purse. Great chapter!
Author's Response: Sometimes i think that life would be so much easier if we could just use magic. I wish i could shrink my suitcases down to that size. It would certainly make travel so much easier.
Looks like Bill isn't the only Weasley curse breaker now. You did good on the sorting hat's song, better than some other versions i've seen. The animagi lesson was cool, had to laugh at Ron's hair. I'm going to have to go back and see what Ellie's patronus form was, b/c I can't remember! Just out of curiosity, what would yours be? I'd be a tiger. PS, no tissue needed!
Author's Response: I think that my Animagi for would be a Lioness (probably why i have a soft spot for Ron). A tiger is pretty cool though. I'm delighted that you liked the chapter.
I needed a tissue for the poem! Very romantic! "A girl let just anyone mess up her hair like that!" Loved that line! And when Harry realized he was doing the "big brother thing" I had to laugh! Great job Nat!
Author's Response: You always pick up on my favourite bits, which is terrific. Harry really does take his role as a big brother seriously, bless him.
Broom cupboards can be quite...cozy ;) Is it wrong for me to be giddy because Ron is planning something special for Hermione? I didn't think so. Tissue free chapter! Great job!
Author's Response: Of course it's not wrong for you to be giddy. I'm spoiling you with these tissue free chapters.
*grabs a tissue* Gosh darn it! The last paragraph made me cry! You did a great job picking jobs for Hermione and Neville. And I have to agree with Amanda, Harry and Ron are going to be bad-ass kick-butt aurors (with tonks!) I loved McGonnagall's trip down memory lane, getting a peek at what happened with James and Lily was cool. And I loved the line "this batch of seventh years was something else" Cant wait for the next chapter! I, I mean Hermione, likes chocolate birthday cake. 10!
Author's Response: Chocolate birthday cake, YAY! Sorry about the tissue thing *coughnotcough*
Nat, you did an awesome job! I loved the broom cupboard scene between Harry and Ginny, especially Harry getting attacked by mops! And the room of requirement was romantic. The smooth arrow was cute, and Ellie, I'm thinking it wasn't the chocolate frogs! *throws tissue in celebration of such a great chapter*
Everytime I look, there's a new chapter! The scene with Neville at the beginning was good. The dream made it sound like I'm going to need tissue soon!
The costumes were wonderful, did you see me dressed as the tissue fairy? (Yes, when I was 8, I dressed up as a tissue fairy, I'll have to email the picture someday) I can't wait for things to be resolved between Harry and Ginny!
*blows whistle and throws tissue into air* Antler interference! Thats ten kisses for Ginny! And a neck massage! (I'm hopped up on hot chocolate, don't mind me being a bit strange) Draco is a scumbucket! Poor Ron and Hermione!
Hand over the tissue! I loved all the presents! I had to laugh when Bill hit Harry by mistake, then hit Ron on the head because he was the only one tall enough. The mirrors were fun too!
I want to hear the Gryffindor song Ellie wrote! I even got a gold colored tissue to wave while I sing it! (ok, it's really yellow, but I can pretend) Great chapter!
Nat, you made me cry! My sister even brought a tissue over to me because she thought I was crying about something else. Ellie's dream was a tearjerker, and the line about just plastering over the cracks, it struck a chord. You did a great job. *gives Nat a hug*
