This was a really strongt chapter. You did a great job and brought tears to my eyes. I love reading Tales of the battle.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. After the next chapter (which I had difficulty in placing within the story sequence) there will be several chapters dealing with the height of the battle. -N-

In the dead of night on Christmas Eve, Molly Weasley sits alone in her kitchen, reminiscing about recent events. She isn't very festive this year, and nobody can bring her out of her funk.

When a mysterious caller arrives in her dreams, Molly is taken on an adventure she would only think of in her dizziest daydreams. Will this be enough to liven her up?

I am ravenclaw1997 of Hufflepuff writing for prompt four of the 2010 Great Hall Christmas Challenge on the Beta Forums.

good story

Author's Response: Thanks a ton! I'm glad you liked it. The next chapter was written horribly, and my beta and I are currently figuring it out. It will be up before Christmas, though, as that is when the contest ends. Thanks for reviewing! ~Manda

This update made my day. I am just waiting to Jackie to figure out the Potter's "secret." I feel like she may not figure out the truth of it, but she may get pretty close.

I can't wait to find out who the killer is!

Author's Response: Thanks.
Will Jacqui ever figure out what's really going on? You'll have to wait and see. More soon(ish)

Reviewer: desertsol98 Signed

Another fun chapter. I like the image of the adults and kids playing together. I starting to feel like Jackie is either going to find out the whole truth and end up getting obliviated or sworn to secrecy. Can't wait to find out!

Author's Response: Thanks.
Things are finally coming to a head. I expect this story to be about 36 chapters and to (finally) be marked complete sometime this year. You'll find out relatively soon.

First...Yay for an update. Second...I enjoyed the insight into the investigation and the good time Jackie obviously had with Ginny. Great chapter. Third...i hope Mary gets put in her place again. Fourth...I hope the next update isn't too far away. I am sitting on the edge of my seat already.

Author's Response: First: It's about time, sorry.
Second: There will be alot more about the investigation in the next chapter, which will be another interlude.
Third: What do you think?
Fourth: the next chapter is already 1000 words, but I'm also working on Hunters and Prey.

A great way to start a Monday.

Another great chapter. I can't wait to find out who the murderer is.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
I hope that you won't have long to wait.

Even though I'm very saddened by the loss of Polly, I must say I give you credit for being able to kill a character, who at least for me, you introduced and fleshed out.
Poor Harry, Poor Aurors!

Author's Response: I've known about this moment since I wrote Protheroe's Perspective, all those years ago. I almost chickened out.

I was so happy to discover that not only was this site back up and working but even better was a new chapter in this story!!! This is one of my favorites of yours.

Jackie is a very smart cookie and picks up on things. I keep waiting for her to figure out the truth.

I'm starting to thinking that maybe Padma is correct, or at least partially correct.

Another great chapter.

Author's Response:
Thanks for the review.

The site was briefly back in November, I posted this, and it went down (not my fault, honest). Jacqui continues to be very good at rationalising things, and she values her friendship with Ginny.

Padma's information will prove useful, but I'll say no more.

what a pleasant surprise I found this morning. What a way to end this chapter! I can't wait to find out who this stranger is!
Jacqui certainly is bright and I'm glad to see Ginny taking her into her confidence (limited confidence, but it still counts)
I just really love this story and all the people in it.

Author's Response:
Thanks, and sorry for the delayed reply. Real life! The stranger will be identified in the next chapter, but a Jacqui isn’t told everything, you won’t know, either. She’s already made a (blink and you’ll miss it) appearance.
There will be a lot to pique Jacqui’s curiosity in the next chapter. But Ginny will, once again, be forced to make excuses.

I was so happy to find out there was a new chapter posted, so glad I decided to check.

Jackie is very sharp muggle! I had wondered if Jackie's mum was going to remember Harry the hiker when Jackie mentioned the Potters. As always, looking forward to next chapter!

Author's Response: Thanks. I wondered the same, but given that she’s running a B&B, I doubt she’d remember one name.

Finally got my internet connection back after moving and boy was I happy to see a new chapter! This story keeps getting better! I can't wait to see how it all ends!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I think I've got about ten (possibly twelve) chapters to go. But first, I'll finish Hunters and Prey. -N-

I think you did a great job with this story, it does not read like a fan fic. its almost like it was written for televison.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I was aiming for a "tv cop-show" style - I'm glad you liked it. Perhaps, if the pilot gets good ratings, there will be a series ;-D -N-

This is well written and the story is believable. Charecters stayed true to how they were originally written. Points for making me get teary eyed at work.

I was so happy to see that this story was updated again! Totally made my morning.

Another great chapter. I really liked how it was Ron who managed to free to girl. Lestrange was sufficiently cruel. Potter and Weaslys quick thinking was quite in charecter.

I must say I really really really really enjoyed Mark and Lavender's first meeting.

It seems that capturing of Lestrange' and its aftermath leads to so many helpful changes in the Auror protocol, love it. I really like that.

I could go on and on, but I best get back to work.

Author's Response:
Thanks for the review.

Ron's rescue plan is one of the few things which have survived from my original outline for this story. The circumstances of Mark and Lavender's first meeting was always their, too. But in the time between starting the story and this chapter the method of Mark's arrival changed completely.

There are two chapters to go, and you're right about the changes to Auror protocol.
