Channeling Phlegm at the moment, please bear with me as I try to avoid turning into Bridezilla.

Challenge: Term - Holidays Abroad Yay!! Second Place!!! Thanks!!!
I really liked this chapter! Aren't they grown up, kissing and noticing nice bums! Great job!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! This was the hardest chapter for me to write - I\'m glad you liked it.
Oh, this was a perfect ending, sad, but perfect. Very good story!
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m glad you liked the ending. They are always the hardest for me. Take care!!
Summary: New Years Eve after the final battle, Harry and Draco finally confront the night that Dumbledore was murdered. AU
Write a prequel! I want to know what happened to Ron, and why Hermione is with Draco! Very good sobering spell, by the way!
Author's Response: Hmmmm what an interesting idea. I might just have to do that. I'm glad you liked the sobering spell... it's amazing what you can come up with when you visit a latin/english dictionary.

Summary: Response to Winter Snows Challenge #4 for Hufflepuff House Harry sat under the Christmas tree, thinking of all the gifts Dobby and Kreacher had been bestowing upon him over the last few days. As he surveyed the pile of so-called presents, he began to sing…
Warning: Reviewers report incidents of falling off chairs and soda coming out of noses due to reading this fic. You've been warned.
*singing, "And a package full of maggots!!!* Oh, this takes the 12 days of christmas cake. Even better than when me and my cousins sang our version and acted it out! (well the lyrics were better, four teenagers acting our six swans aswimming is pretty funny) Great job!
Author's Response: From all the stories you tell me about your cousins, it sounds like it's a fun group! Maybe this year you can act mine out! Who will play the package of maggots?
Summary: Response to Winter Snows Challenge # 1 for Hufflepuff House.
The cold and the wet went unnoticed to the lone person wandering the streets. The numbness he felt had nothing to do with the chill. His heart was frozen. For him, this day, of all days, was the worst day of the year. How could anyone see this day as a cause for celebration? Certainly Voldemort was gone, but so was the one person who made life worth living. Seven years had passed since Voldemort’s downfall; but so had seven years since her smile was last seen. How anyone could pluck up the courage to celebrate this day was beyond him.
*first review dance! Hey, Macarena!* Amanda, you made me cry again! Especially when you said the book was from Ron! And when Harry said he didn't want to lose another best friend. I put my beta skills back to work, apparently I missed something before! Change "loose" to "lose", unless you want unfastened friends! Oopsie! Great job!
Author's Response: It's amazing, no matter how many times or how many people looked through this, there were things I kept missing. And you still found one more! Thanks! I'm so glad you got to be the first person to review this for me. I have to admit, I made myself cry when I thought up the idea and while pondering it. But right now I just can't be sad! I'm just so happy it finally went up!
Summary: This was a fic written for a Secret Santa Fic Exchange in the Hufflepuff common room. BE Evans requested a Pre-HBP Harry/Ginny fic where Harry and Ginny work to get their best friends together, but find out they like each other along the way.
*first review dance! 1,2, cha cha cha!* I can't wait to see who else makes use of Arthur's shed *big wink* Raise you hand if you want to see Bill and Fleur making out in the shed! Great story, let's get to work on the rest!
Author's Response: Right after we see Amanda and Remus in the shed! *evil grin* You're the best!!!
Summary: The most succinct summary ever!! My "Book 7" told with revolving POVs from Hermione, Ron and Harry's perspectives. It's got it all! Romance, mystery, intrigue, Horcruxes, humor, international travel, house-elves, new characters, Voldy, the Burrow, and at least one wedding...
A very JKR conclusion to this chapter, with it being a golden evening. Changing it to "A sickle in her shoe" was cute, and Ginny definitely is the sickle in Harry's shoe!
Author's Response: Thanks! Yeah, well, I figure some Muggle things must trickle their way into the wizarding world, and I did adjust the saying's meaning a LITTLE to suit my purposes...
Dark and difficult times lie ahead. You've got a great Y7 fic going! I can see Ron being a smart ass 17yr old and telling Harry he was staring up Hermione's nostrils, but maybe he would have said he was checking for bogeys instead. And still the Percy cliffie!
Author's Response: Percy and Ron's conversation is in the next chapter, which is in the queue. But, unfortunately, don't expect ALL the answers from it...stay tuned!
Evil Cliffie! This was a cool chapter, especially Fiora and Hermione bonding over transfiguration. And the pictures of JP/LE/SB/FP and the trio plus Ginny were cool too. I just can't believe Snape. I want to smack him in the head. Better yet, jam a No. 2 cauldron over his head, and repeatedly hit it with McGonnagall's walking stick! Update soon!
Author's Response: yeah, it was pretty evil. As far as abusing Snape, you may wanna wait a few chapters before inflicting your punishment on him - he probably deserves something, but I wouldn\'t say what just yet...
Pandafan recommended this story to me, and I'm glad she did! You did a very good job with the letters, although Hermione's could have been a tiny bit longer! I giggled at the thought of Harry being "Cassanova-like" compared to Ron, but he kissed a girl he liked, rather than to spite a girl he liked, so I could see Harry being better with girls. Good job!
Author's Response: Well, god bless pandafan, and god bless you for reading and reviewing so thoroughly! I am glad you are enjoying it thus far!
Ah, the wisdom of Ginny. I have to agree with pandafan, great job with Ginny! I also liked that Ron's emotional range is now overflowing from the teaspoon, and Ginny's fact of the matter statement that he was protecting his heart, not Hermione, that was well written. Simultaneous giggling? Thumbs up! That's sometimes the best giggling there is, because it's for no reason. Very good.
Author's Response: Well, thanks re: Ginny. I actually have to think hard when I write her, I want her fiesty but not too obnoxious. Yeah, I have Ron growing up a bit...he's still a bit of a dolt sometimes, but I think he learned a lot his sixth year. Oh, giggling is just plain fun!
Toujours Paris! I got just a tad sniffly at the end, which means you did a great job! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the trio, and Ginny! And for you to update soon!
Author's Response: Aaaawww, sorry you got too sad!! Thanks for the great compliment tho! More soon, that\'s a promise...
Can I please have some floating fudge fritters? They sound yummy! Just like Molly to tempt them with food! Hope Arthur doesn't get in trouble for getting his pants singed. The conversation between Harry and Ron was good, it brought a tear to my eye. Another good chapter!
Author's Response: Don't cry! These boys are just figurin' it all out I think...thank goodness!
Co-ed pancake wrestling! Brilliant! I love Fred and George's antics! I wonder if you use different pancakes if there are different results, say chocolate chip instead of blueberry... I was excited at Ron's admission to Hermione, how awesome! Can you tell I liked this chapter? 10!
Author's Response: Of all my chapters, I think this is my own favorite, actually. I get to be both romantic and silly, my favorite things...
I'm so happy Ron and Hermione resolved things! Yay! I had to smile at Ron picking Hermione's brush and barrette up, it fit perfectly! Update soon so I can be assured Moony and Tonks are ok!
Author's Response: Thanks, Accio. Did you notice how I snuck that bottle of perfume in there too?? An old Christmas gift from Ron, actually. I will update as soon as MNFF let's me - I've got a lot of the next few chappies plotted out!! ;-)
Stupider pastures! I was cracking up! (and in a Luna laughing at baboons backsides way too!) Best line of the chapter! Aside from Hermione's last comment, which was also awesome! Yay! Good job!
Author's Response: You are wonderful...I love thorough, thoughtful reviewers. Glad you are enjoying it thus far....
More antics! Yay! I love that Ginny was trying to throw Harry for a loop at breakfast. And of course she knew something was going on, even if it was guesswork. Nice job.
Author's Response: Thanks...yeah, she's wiley, alright. I was afraid Ginny fans would get upset and think I was trying to portray her as devious, but really, she's so close to all of the Trio, and she's not dumb! She knows SOMETHING is up!
Yay for stammering Ron! Lairy Fights, that's the one! Good job, too bad Molly interrupted!
Author's Response: Yeah, well, had to extend the tension for a bit longer...hopefully you got to chapter 11....
I'm speechless! I even did the fish face with my mouth hanging open! You totally sprang Percy on me! And I got teary at Arthur's speech, very nice. I can't wait to see what happens next!
Author's Response: Yeah, I actually got a bit choked up during his speech too. Weddings are SO emotional! And family is super important.
Cliffie! How does he know! I'm surprised there weren't any flying turnips, but maybe there werent any handy.
Author's Response: Oh, you are gonna have so much fun, Accio_Chocolate, with the romance of the wedding...
