Despite being a HP addict for years, I'm new to fan fiction and never paid attention to shipping wars. I read this story and loved it.
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm pretty much a canon-shipper, if I'm honest, but I like to tweak it at times. This story 'could' be canon because we don't know what happened in the intervening years, and that's what I wanted to explore. Thank you for reading and leaving a review. ~Carole~
