Summary: The wedding cake is gone; the bride and groom are honeymooning. Yet Molly Weasley cannot seem to relax and enjoy the family that lingers in the aftermath of the celebration. She knows the easy laughter they enjoy tonight will be short lived, because three teenagers are leaving in the morning with a job so serious no one will even speak its nature aloud.
Molly knows no magic that will stop morning from coming. But she can make stew and fan the flames of laughter; she can tell someone something she's been wanting to say for years. And she can hold them all while she has them.
Awww I liked the fact that Molly and Hermione got some girl time! I also appreciated the fact that the Weasley family knew the truth and they all had proper good byes. Wonderful story, as always!
Author's Response: Ok, now you are just being sweet to me. Hehe. I had fun writing this, as it was a little plot bunny that kept nagging me, but I think it is probably the most poorly-written thing I have written. Fortunately, it was also one of the first. But I do think Molly and Hermione would have got on well, and I can see Molly giving them a little push if needed. Thanks so much for reading, and always taking the time to review. It means more than you know. :) ~ Lori
The kitchen at the Burrow has six occupants, Harry, Ginny, Ron, Hermione, Molly and Arthur. The youngsters look nervous. Arthur suspects that they are up to something. What is going on inside…
The Mind of Arthur Weasley
It was interesting to see an outside view of the couples looking in and I enjoyed seeing Molly and Arthur still in love after all those years : ) He read all of their body language and conversation very well....well written!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. This is my most read (and most reviewed) one shot. There are obviously a lot of Arthur fans out there and it was a lot of fun writing about H/G and R/H from his perspective. N
Summary: A story set a few years after the Battle. Harry, Ron, Hermione and Ginny are living in the Burrow. A story of them juggling friendships, relationships and work.
this story is adorable! cant wait for more chapters : )
Summary: Life with the Potters is always interesting. What emergency could haul Deputy Head Auror Harry Potter from his bed in the middle of the night?
i loved seeing harry as a helpful father! it was so funny to see ron competiting with harry and saying his daughter was better haha. very intimate story between ginny and harry and harry and albus...sorry adorable! thanks for sharing!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. This was a lot of fun to write. N
Summary: After the war, Hermione returns to Hogwarts to complete her seventh year of studies as Head Girl, only to find Draco Malfoy has been appointed Head Boy. Her life is further complicated by the fact that Headmistress McGonagall is strongly encouraging Malfoy and her to attend one of the three wizarding universities in Europe after they graduate from Hogwarts. The story starts HG/RW, but the focus is on the development of HG/DM.
Loving this story so far...I will definitely be back for more! Most realistic Draco/Hermione fic I have ever read!
Wow..."After we're done, you can apparate back"...very romantic Ron lol.
Beautiful story! My favorite Draco and Hermione story to date! I enjoy your originality in creating spells and potions of your own in addition to continuing JK Rowling's created ones. I especially liked the meaning behind the title and the tickling spell you used. This is also the most realistic Draco/Hermione story I have ever read. Many make it easy by saying Ron died in the war or saying Ron and Hermione never dated, but with your story you started it off with how we all imagined the story continuing after the last chapter of DH...Ron and Harry as Aurors and Hermione and Ginny returning to Hogwarts, with the couples openly dating. It was sweet to see Draco slowly winning Hermione over during the course of an entire school year which is more realistic to both of their personalities. Hermione wouldn't fall for any guy quickly, especially Draco so I'm glad you showed her being cautious but still open to giving Draco a second chance. I can't wait to read the second story in this series : ) Job well done!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for this very nice and thoughtful review. It is especially gratifying to hear that you appreciate all the things I worked so hard to achieve with my story. I think the second one is a bit less romantic, but a bit more exciting. I hope you like it too! Thank you, again. Jenny
The Wizarding War is over.
Auror training has begun and Harry and Ron find that their lives are centred round London and the Ministry of Magic.
For Ginny and Hermione there is the inevitable return to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Their lives are centred round schooling in Scotland.
Do these divided duos have different destinations and divergent destinies? When, where and how can these parted pairings meet? Opportunities are limited to holidays, Hogsmeade visits and school Quidditch matches.

Hmmmm well the beginning of the chapter was definitely all business and no pleasure...sad to see there was only one meantion of Hermione and two of Ginny...very brief : ( I enjoyed the interaction between harry and ron at the end. I'm still holding on to see the guys and gals together again. I loved seeing them together in Grave Days and now they are NEVER together! Ugh!
Author's Response: There was a lot of business in this chapter, but there was a lot of stuff going on. I admit that I have been desperately trying to keep the couples apart, which is only right as the girls are at school and the boys are working. They don't like it, and theuy are fighting me. I don’t suppose that you’ll enjoy the next chapter as the focus is away from H/G & R/H, but after that, it’s the Christmas Holidays. Time for some fun. (-; -N-
Yeah! The queue is open again : ) I enjoyed your idea about Harry being offered a lot of jobs because of who he is and girls wanting to dance with him for fame. I hope to see more romance between Harry and Ginny where Harry isn't as distracted and more Ron and Hermione is always accepted too : ) Keep it up!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. This chapter was intended to show that Harry still has a lot to do. There will be some Christmas fluff in the next few chapters, if those pesky Slytherin's don't interfere. The next Strangers at Drakeshaugh is now in the queue. -N-
aww just as harry and ginny get time alone, its time to leave! i was hoping for more about ron and hermione's relationship too but ive enjoy this story so far. i really like that the characters arent perfect and i like the little details about the minor characters. keep it up!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Ron and Hermione won’t get a chapter to themselves for quite some time, sorry. N
Finally we know the reason for Harry talking to Cho, and it was all for Ginny, awww so sweet! I loved how Mrs Weasley kept dropping hints that she wants Harry to marry Ginny...but who wouldn't want their daughter to marry the chosen one?? I can't wait for the award ceremony/ball! Should be interesting : )
Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
In the last chapter Ron pointed out that Harry and Cho was “simply business” :-) Molly has always liked Harry, though your choice of term for him made me smile (because of something in the next chapter, which is the ceremony/ball)-N-
Exactly what I've been waiting for...more Ron and Hermione
Author's Response: Happy to oblige (-: -N-
I'm sorry, you're right! They asked if he was engaged to Ginny, not Hermione. They just mentioned Harry traveling alone with Hermione...I don't get on the computer until my daughter is asleep so I'm usually half asleep by then! Great story, can't wait for more!
Author's Response: Thanks. You had me confused, but I was half asleep when I replied. I hope to get the next chapter, Christmas: Suspicion to my beta within the week. -N-
Harry finally said the "L" word! Wish Ginny would have heard it though! Great chapter, but depressing how little time the couples get to see eachother : ( can't wait for the holidays to come...
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Harry can't wait for the holidays either, only five chapters to go! -N-
I'm getting as frustrated as Hermione and Ginny now! They never see the boys : ( We need to see them together, I'm hoping for the holidays to come soon! Great job though, can't wait for more!
Author's Response: The holidays (Christmas) are coming, but not until Chapter 12, sorry. More frustration and worry to come. -N-
haha good question ginny, i wonder what they are doing too! im glad the girls are helping eachother out with insider info but i hope they get to see the boys soon! love this fic!
Author's Response: Thanks. Next, four boys and a girl in Grimmauld Place: Revelations. But the girls won't meet the boys for a while yet. -N-
YEAH for updates!!! I love the award ceremony and remembering the fallen, very genuine. The press conference was hilarious with people thinking Harry was engaged to Hermione and Harry insisting everyone say "Tom Riddle". Absolutely love this story, can't wait for more!!!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I enjoyed writing about the press conference, but I don’t remember making a Harry/Hermione joke. More soon. -N-
Yeah! It's finally Christmas : ) I loved the part where Ginny and Harry walk in on Hermione and Ron...classic! Definitely enjoyed seeing the "Aurors" and "Schoolgirls" back together again and can't wait to read more about their quality time during the holidays!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. The two couples will have very little quality time during the holidays. I enjoyed writing the Grimmauld Place scene. (-: But next, it's time for Ron's Revelation. -N-
aww hermione and ginny miss their men...cant wait til they can visit again! so excited to see an update, keep up the great work!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. The next chapter (Quidditch: Auror Action) is being submitted now. N
OMG cliffhanger...they saw eachother for literally 30 seconds! cant wait for the next chapter, hope to see ron/hermione and harry/ginny spend time together after the game
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. They haven’t seen much of each other, have they? Still, what could possibly go wrong? Hope is a good thing to have. (-: -N-
