To anyone who received an email regarding A Secondhand Life,
It's the first and last. I'm not pestering for reviews, I just thought that after such a long time, I'd go back and see if anyone who at one point showed interest was willing to come back and read more.

It won second place in the Hufflepuff common room. Christmas-themed, post-DH, rated G. Features Albus, James, and Harry.
Wanna do me a favor? Got a myspace? Add Scarlet Thunder my band! If not just listen to our stuff. Thanks!
Hmm, doesn't Snape state in the fifth book that three drops of Veritaserum will do it, not just one? And I doubt Harry would trust the potion's reliability, because in book six, Dumbledore tells him that there are ways of avoiding Veritaserum, such as the antidote. Other than that, great chapter!! I almost didn't click on the link in my email, since I had gotten so many emails saying this story was updated when it really wasn't. Keep writing, this story's amazing!!
Author's Response: Thank you!! Yeah, for once it\'s relly updated! lol! Er, whoops I forgot about that in book five...I\'m sure that they say it\'s a drop somewhere else thoug..don\'t worry, the potion is real, but to be sure, the Ministry can use a \"real\" potion to be sure!
I love how you explain Ginny's emotions so well. Just one thing I keep noticing. Harry and Ginny's dauther's name is Lisle, but some people call her Lisa. Anyway, good job!
Author's Response: Thanks, i think Ginny is a very interesting character to write about, because she's not in the books much until 4, 5 and 6, and thats when you begin to notice that she has a very strong personality. And yes, Ginny and Harry's daughter's name is Lisle, but Ginny uses Lisa as a nickname (I think I wrote that in Chapter Two or one). Anyways, I'm glad to have a new reviewer!! :))
I really like how you describe Lisle. She's really cute!!
Author's Response: Thank you! It's always fun making new characters -- and Lisle was very interesting to invent, as she has some brave, noble Potter blood and also some stubborn, loyal and witty Weasley blood in her!! lol, thaks 4 reviewing again
Wow, that was really good! I love it how you show flashbacks to how she went through the exact same things with Lisle.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading on! It's been interesting for me to see how this develops, because the first few chapters weren't very good (punctuation-wise) but i see that this has definately improved! I think the best thing so far is that I have had so much friendly feedback, giving me helpful tips or nice compliments, and it really helps!! Thanks again!
Haha, I think what Hermione said at the very end was very funny. Great spin to the story!
Author's Response: Lol! I'll have to check what it was, i tink ive forgotten!! Haha! Have fun reading on, I will try to update soon (for you lovely readers). :D
Woah, that was good lol. Hmm, for names? I don't know if somebody already said this, but while I was reading one of the chapters I read the word "summery" and thought Summer would be a good name. I had another name, but I can't remember it now!! It's going to kill me, but if I do remember it, I'll let you know. Great chapter!
Author's Response: Lol!! I know that feeling, when your'e trying really REALLY hard to remember something and it bugs you all day, and then you ask someone and they just say it off the top of their heads, and you're like "Ohhh! yeah!!". lol again. Well thanks for reading ch. 6!!
I remembered. It's Phoebe, but somebody might have mentioned that already. Actually, I saw Piper already here and Phoebe or Paige (haha) would be nice too. Anyway, I also want to say that Harry has great emotions here!! lol
Author's Response: lol, Paige, Piper, Phoebe and Prue!! The Charmed Ones!! Or Buffy. hehe! Thanks for liking harry's emotions, it's fun to write about people's thoughts and personalities. =D
Haha, that was funny. A very nice chapter. =]
Author's Response: why thank u! it seems like it was forever ago that the first chapter was written... thank u oh-so-very much for the review! we absolutely LOVE reviews!!! feel free to go into honeyduke\'s and pick out ur FAVORITE sweet! it\'s on us! :) have a MAGNIFICENT day!
Hmm....a short chapter, but good.
Author's Response: well, we both like longer chapters ourselves, but shorter chapters make it easier for us to write and update... to make up for the fact that the first few chapters go so slowly, we\'re going to start stepping it up a bit, but we don\'t think it will have a negative affect on the story. what do u think? quality is better than quantity! :) do u like pumpkin pasties? have a SUPERB day!
I liked it. It shows that Peter tries to keep up with the others, but not so well. Good job.
Author's Response: we realize that a lot of people complain about peter being given a bad time in fan fic., but seriously, they basically said he wasn\'t up to speed with the rest of the marauders in POA. we\'re glad that u seem to agree! how about a licorice wand? we hope u have a GLORIOUS day! :)
Haha, lucky James, get's to patrol with Lily.
Author's Response: it would appear that way, wouldn\'t it? well, we wouldn\'t want to give anything away, so we\'ll just stop for now... it looks like it might be time for one of dudder\'s favorite treats! ton-tongue toffee anyone??? just us? OK! have a *mummble, mummble!* :)
I wonder what the plan is. Interesting beginning. Nice chapter.
That was a nice way of bringing them together. Kudos to you for a good story!!
That was a pretty funny start. Good chapter.
That was so sad, but very, very good. You perfectly described Regalus, at least how I always imagined him. Brilliant story!!
Well, that song is one of my favorites, so I just had to read this. Nice start. Looking forward to more. "Muggle" is capitalized. Other than that, great work.
Haha, that was sweet. Good story.
Omg, as soon as I saw the name Draco Malfory, I was like, ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, poor Ginny! But it's a good story lol.
Cute and funny. Great job! 10/10
Woah....I'm totally speechless. When Dumbledore died in HBP, I was the only one of my friends who didn't really feel like crying. But this? Omg. This made me feel like crying so hard. It was so good. I'm absolutely amazed at your writing, and your intake on all things such as love. It is so hard to believe that this is just a fanfiction, and not many people are going to be abled to appreciate it as much as I did. Just because of this chapter, this story is going on my favorites list. I absolutely ♥ this story!! Can't wait for the sequel, which I know will be just as amazing.
And on another note, the whole time I was reading this chapter, the song "No Day But Today" from Rent kept playing in my mind. =]
Author's Response: I need to check with my girlfriend about the Rent soundtrack, she\'s really into musicals. Well, I\'m glad you like it and I hope you really enjoy the sequels as well. I\'m also glad that the end really got you emotionally because when it comes down to it, the end is the party of this story that I\'m really proud of, and in the writing, I even shed a tear or two, so that\'s just indescribable when you can connect with a reader like that. Thank you for the review.
