Rated: Professors [Reviews - 96]

Summary: Past Featured Story

In her seventh year, Katie Bell knew what it was like to fear death. A year later, she learnt what it was like to see it in front of her. Nothing she had ever experienced had prepared her to deal with the aftermath of that. And then he came.

Caught in a whirlwind of Quidditch, heartbreak, and a rivalry, Katie struggled with her jumbled mess of feelings, one of which she hadn't expected but was growing certain that she could never live without.




Oh my freaking Salazar! This story WON TWO 2011 Quicksilver Quill Awards: Best Post-Hogwarts Story and Best Non-Canon Romance Story. *flail*



This (late) update was brought to you by the (belated) birthday of the ever-lovely Hannah / h_vic. She is a star and an excellent friend!

Author's Response:

I'm glad you like it and are anxious to find out what happens next. I promise that I haven't given up on it, but I've recently hit a bit of a mental block on a lot of my works in progress. Typically, I could balance them all and be able to update regularly, but as of late, it's like I need to flush my brain so my mind can percolate a bit and finally wrap itself around getting something done. I know that didn't make any sense, and believe me, I feel that pain of not updating as badly as you do. I feel horrid about it, but I will go out on a limb and say that it will be less than a month before the next chapter.

Thank you so much for checking in!

This is such a great fic and you have me hungry for more!!! When will you be posting the next chapter? Anyways, I also wanted to say that I love the way you made Katie and Oliver relatable, and I also love how you really portrayed the sexual tension and love that is growing between them. Keep up the good work!

Author's Response:

I'm glad you like the story. I've just sent a brand new chapter to my beta, which should come back this weekend, so I'd say it should be posted Sunday at the latest.

I wanted Katie and Oliver to be ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. As a very wise man (Rob Thomas) once said: Everyone is just a little f***ed up. Their own brand of personal problems are just a variant of that. That's almost why I chose to make the story in Katie's POV instead of Oliver's; I know what it's like to be that scared little girl out in the big bad world and not having a clue how to deal with the romantic side of it. In retrospect, it feels rather pathetic, but it's a phase that we all experiene on some level. I'm glad you could relate to it.

Thanks for reading and reviewing, and I hope to see you again soon.
