I am an adult reader who fell in love with Jo Rowling's writing while reading Sorceror's Stone to my daughter. We ordered and read each new book as it came out, and I have greatly enjoyed reading the fan fiction here that carries on the canon. I am not a writer myself, but prefer stories written by the contributors from the UK, as they stick most closely to the idea of what boarding schools are like, and have a specific tone. Definitely a canon adherent--Jo's world is too rich to need a rewrite.
Summary: Though the trials of war are behind them, life will always include difficulties that must be faced.I am thrilled beyond reason to announce that this fic won the 2011 Quicksilver Quill in the category Best Canon Romance, one-shot. Thank you so much! :)
Nicely done and very sweet. My wife and I went through a 3 year wait, and then 2 false pregnancies between our son and daughter. Now--they need to relax and get a start on Rose.
Author's Response: I'm sorry to hear of your difficulty, but am glad this story connected enough that you liked it. I completely agree, and I believe they would have got started on Rose that very evening. ;)
Summary: It's 2012 and for Charlie Weasley, life in Romania with his dragons is good. Okay, his mum doesn't stop nagging him about his love-life, but at least she's not attacking his hair with scissors. The only cloud is the Ministry of Magic's threat to slash their funding. What Charlie needs to do is charm the visiting Ministry official. Unfortunately, he hadn't expected it to be his brother's prim ex-girlfriend.
Will she slash his budget? Or can he make her change her mind?

A huge thank you to Sarah (SapphireatDawn) for beta'ing this at record speed.
Inspiration for this pairing came from Julia - she features in the fic ... sort of ...

Fun story. I hope you will follow it up. I really enjoy your touch with romance, allowing it to be a bit spicy. Thanks.
Author's Response: There's one more chapter. This is all complete, so the follow up shouldn't be long. Thanks very much for reading and reviewing. I appreciate it ~Carole~
