Channeling Phlegm at the moment, please bear with me as I try to avoid turning into Bridezilla.
I need to learn the spell to put rhinestones in my hair! The little details make the chapter, from hairstyles, to Ginny sticking her tounge out at Phlegm. And Ron not having an appetite because he's got Hermione on the brain, clever!
Author's Response: Yeah, wouldn't magic make beauty secrets a lot more fun?? Ahhh, Ron. Yep, falling in love sure changes everything...even eating habits!
Yay for Fred and George antics! The family picture made me laugh, I can just see Ron falling all over the place. And the twins' advice was hilarious, just grab her face and snog her! And I really like how you replay scenes with another person's POV. Very good!
Author's Response: I love the twins...they're some of my faves. Plus, they add humor to what may be serious or angst-filled situations. Oh, thanks re: POV comment. I like doing it. It's so interesting to me that facts are interpreted differently by different people.
Teaspoon my ass! Ron was great in this chapter, rushing to defend Hermione! Nicely done!
Author's Response: Heehee...all men learn sometimes...at least, we like to think they do. :-)
I liked this chapter, especially that you pointed out that Remus was mourning while everyone else was celebrating. The pocket watch sounds cool, and I have to agree with Pandafan, its an appropriate gift, seeing how Ron got a watch. I luahged at Tonks' antics, especially when she tripped after vouging. Nicely done.
Author's Response: Yeah, Lupin had it rough...he really was left all alone out there, you know? He didn't have anyone to turn to really. I love Tonks...and I am a klutz myself, so I empathise with her too!
*looks over the edge of the cliffie to see if the next chapter is coming soon* What to say! First, yay Ron for not jumping down Percy's throat! And you mentioned the teaspoon, or lack thereof! I liked you mentioned the creaking house as Ron went to talk to Percy, very ominous, but very good!
Author's Response: Thanks for all of the above ~ I am trying get another chapter up this week. I REALLY appreciate your thought-out, specific reviews!
I'm very interested to hear what Peter asked Fiora to do. This was a good chapter, I like how Remus cut Molly off before she got rolling.
Author's Response: Oh thanks much!!! I got a bit way-laid for a moment, I lost a few of my chapters due to a computer glitch!! But I am back in action...look for more chappies soon!
Darn Cliffie! This was a good chapter, very suspenseful, and I loved that Ginny nicked the letter.
Author's Response: Love Ginny too ~ she\'s not as bad as the twins for breaking the rules, but she does do things her own way, right? Also, even though I really have the perspective that this is the Trio\'s quest, Ginny (along with a few others) are KEY to their success, don\'t you think?
Oubliettium, what a cool concept, and how each of them has a different way to get out...and he winked!
Author's Response: He did, didn\'t he?? Heehee. I have been DYING to write that moment for awhile now. Since about chapter 20, I knew my story would get to this place - and I was really excited to write that moment of revelation from Hermione\'s perspective...
*Sequel to Once in a Blue Moon*
*Ch 20 Quote*
It was the happiest Christmas of my life.
So I was reading this chapter earlier at work (kinda a No no) and one of the other ladies came up behind me and started reading out loud. I was laughing so hard I almost peed my pants. It's very weird to have this quote
"He kissed me softly. “All the fun?” Remus murmured, sliding his lips across my cheek to tug gently on my earlobe.
Shivering, I turned to press him against the sofa, admitting, “Not all…” Snogging my guy quickly became almost more ‘fun’ than I could handle. While most of my brain was afraid to play with matches, a remnant didn’t want to contain my passion, as Sirius had put it."
read out load. But yay for inducing a giggle fit that lasted at least 5 minutes!
Author's Response: I believe giggles go well with snogging, (and snogging scenes) LOL. I think stories are meant to be heard in your head, not read aloud, but as long as you had a good time reading, I\'m a happy writer. :D
At sixteen, Sirius looked forward to summer holiday until he was banished to Scotland. Unable to use magic, he’s faced with a dilemma. How to impress a pretty villager? With a little help from his friends. . . SBOC
The ceremony was cool! And Mrs. Potter was hilarious again! Smart and Funny! A great combination in any woman! And Snuffles! Can't wait to see him again! 10!
Author's Response: I\'m really glad you liked the ceremony! I love writing Mrs. Potter, she is SO much fun!
*mmmmm Godiva* I'm going to get spoiled!
Author's Response: That\'s okay... everyone deserves a little spoiling!
*first review dance* Don't you just love throwing an attitude right back at snooty salesladies? It's so much fun! This reminded me of my high school days of going shopping with my friends and trying on ballgowns and prom dresses, those were the good old days! Nice chapter!
Author's Response: LOL I do remember doing exactly that! This was fun to write and I'm glad to see you come back and review again!
I found your story today, and I'm adding it to my favorites! I loved that Tonks was running around naked, so funny. I can't wait to see what happens next, update soon!
Author's Response: Thank you! I just love being on people's favorites! Writing that scene with Tonk escaping from her bath and running wet and naked through the Manor was lots of fun! Chapter 7 in Queue. I do try to update every week!
Good chapter, glad to see the update, and Lucius getting his ass whupped. yay!
Author's Response: Me too! Lucius is a bit full of himself isn\'t he?
Yay for pink Quidditch robes! Just the right amount of fluff and action!
Author's Response: You are the first review to notice (or maybe just to comment) on the Pink Quidditch robes. Godiva Chocolate for you!!
Fun little chapter. I loved Mrs. Potter. And tell Tom that Pea Soup in itself it just wrong!
Author's Response: The next time I'm in the Leaky Cauldron, I'll be sure to do that!
Fluff! I love fluff! The trust for the gardens is a cool idea, although I wonder if there are any magical plants in there grandmere black doesn't want anyone to know about... And this kiss! So good!
Author's Response: Yay for loving fluff! Thanks for coming back and reviewing again! The gardens are rather extensive... you never know what you could find there!
this was a cute chapter, always nice to see two sisters gossiping about boys, i know thats what I'll be doing with my sister this weekend, hopefully we won't be threatening to cut any hair though!
Author's Response: Thanks for coming back and reviewing again! This was a fun chapter to write!
*First review dance!* Too bad Sirius didn't tell James to set off the fireworks! The dresses sound beautiful, and Mrs. Black sounds like she is an uptight ....*thinks a very bad word* Great job, especially the comment about Sirius being a "lucky dog"!
Author's Response: Thanks for coming back and reviewing again! I had a lot of fun writing this chapter (as you can probably tell from the length!)
*first review dance* Well, it was nice that Morag and Regalus got to meet before the betrothal. I wonder what he was meeting slippery Lucius for though....good chapter, I look forward to the next one!
Author's Response: We do know, thanks to the lovely and talented J.K. Rowling, that Regulus was a Deatheater. Besides the fact that they are going to be related by marriage soon. I'm glad you liked the chapter and I admit I'm really looking forward to posting this Friday! I hope you come back and review!
