Shamrock by Equinox Chick
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 26]

Summary: In the space of five months, Seamus Finnigan found himself out of one relationship and home, and safely ensconced with the rapacious Romilda Vane.

About to get married and move to Paris, he couldn't be happier.

But his friends have other ideas.

Hi, great opening, I don't know how you juggle so many stories together. and I love the shrieking reminder, it reminded me of Hermione's Homework planner.
(btw, my bestfriend is called Anusha. i wonder what she would say to her sharing her name with Dean and Parvati's daughter!:P) I haven't read the other stories you mentioned, so I am properly confused about why Romilda dislikes Dean and what partnership Dean and Seamus had and who Seamus' ex was, but I hope to find out as the story progresses,

Author's Response: Ohhh, I changed the name of the baby at the last minute (the original name had the wrong origin D'OH!) so I'm giggling a little at how I hit on a name you knew well - ha. The reason Romilda dislikes Dean should be clearer in chapter 2 and the identity of Seamus' ex is also revealed. The business they had isn't wildly important to this story, but basically 'The Foolhardy Boys and Parvati, too' was written for a mystery competition, so I had them setting up a detective agency.

Thank you ~Carole~

"He was sure that if anything could charm Hermione it would be a book." -I laughed out loud at this- (yes, the full form, because LOL doesn't quite cover it). Ron, oh Ron.

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing :) Haha, I'm so glad I'm not the only one who takes the time to write the full form, along with an explanation as to why I've written it out in full form.

Well done with describing the 3rd task from viewers' PoV.
And the next chapter rocks. Bless you, Neville- he should cough more often.:P

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing :) Haha,yeah, if only Neville had a permanent cold then they might've got together a lot sooner!

This is one of your best chapters till date- brilliant. I was sobbing through the first part and the scene between Fred and George would have got me sobbing again if that "Asymmetrical Wonder" line didn't turn up.

Author's Response: Thank you! Ear humour from the twins does tend to cure tears :)

Hermione squirmed. Did Luna ever actually listen to herself?

That's our question, isn't it? Great chapter- from angst to tenderness...wonderful.

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! A question I doubt we will ever get an answer to. I'm glad you liked it!

"Honestly," she continued. "He didn't know why you asked him out and he hatched a plan to find out. Of course, he's a boy so it didn't go quite to plan. In fact, he's not just a boy, it's Ron and from all I've heard, it was always doomed to fail spectacularly," ... Why haven't we seen more of Mrs.Granger? She rocks! And I love how Crookshanks bolted from the room. Also, "infernal ball of feathers"... :D

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! I'm really glad you like her - Mrs Granger will be back in a couple of chapters. Crookshanks and Pig are so underrated. I'd stick them in every chapter if I could. Thanks for reviewing again :)

beautiful end and I like how the epilogue is not from either Ron or Hermione's pov but from Harry's.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for reading and reviewing! It seemed fair to give Harry the last say- plus this was Ron and Hermione had an equal number of POVs. Can't be showing favourites. Anyway, I'm glad you liked the fic and thank you for all the reviews :)

"Excuse me? Seconds in command?" called Fred from the back of the room.
"Well, now that our only hope just walked out, we sort of expected you two to take charge," shrugged Fred.

I loved this part. Also, how the tables turn! Loved Ron's chess-face thinking.

The part with Snape was brilliant.

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! I couldn't resist having one last Fred and George moment before - well... that. This was Ron's big moment so I'm glad you think I did it justice. Haha, Snape just makes everything better, doesn't he? Anyway, glad you enjoyed this chapter :)

McGonagall being amused was the best part.

Author's Response: Thank you for reviewing :) I like to think most of the faculty were rooting for these two in the end.

For being two such bright, feisty young girls, I always though Ginny and Hermione were rather silly in thier reaction to Fleur. Although, that makes them more real and endearing as characters. You got Ron really well in this chapter, and Fleur was wonderful- it's great how she knew the nickname- but I've always wanted to read Bill's reaction. Do you think you'll do that next chapter? Or if you want to jump events you could include Bill's reaction in flashback mode? Pretty please?

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing :) Yeah, but she was beautiful and the boys they liked had both noticed. Some kind of primal instinct kicks in in that situation. I was worried about Fleur so I'm glad you think I did her justice. Bill does show up in a couple of chapters time, but his reaction to this isn't shown. It is something I'd like to write as a separate story eventually though.

Date: 01/09/13 Title: Chapter 17: The Final Battle -- Part Two

Brilliant, every part of it brilliant. I always wanted to know what was happening in the Great Hall while Harry was in the forest, plus the confession part was so good and in-character, done in a way that it could only be Ron and Hermione and not just any love story with any two people. The disappointing bit is the seven years are over now. :(

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! So did I and how Ginny ended up outside so I ended up writing it. And thank you! I really wanted it to be very them. Not quite! There is one more chapter that's sort of an epilogue :)

I love the candle metaphor. Or is it imagery? I think you used it as both in this story. I loved this story, loved how Sirius talked with Fudge- just two things- 1. I can't believe a man like Fudge would walk into Azkaban alone, and at any rate, a prison inspection usually entails an entourage for the minister. 2. I would have liked to see Sirius reading the newspaper and finding out that Peter was going to Hogwarts, and to see him make the connection to Harry.

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you liked it. The flickering part was a lot of fun to write. And thanks for pointing out the part about Fudge, I'll edit that in. :) It was just that the image I based the fic upon only had Fudge coming out of the boat, so any thoughts of an entourage skipped my mind. I'll see where I can add that in. And of course, I'll try to add in another line to make Fudge making the connection with Harry :)--Nadia
