I am finally a member so I get to review! Let me first say, that this is totally one of my favorite fan fics EVER! I started reading it back when you were on Chapter 11 and I have been addicted to the story ever since. Chapter 15 is great. Please update soon, I cannot wait much longer!
Very good chapter! It started out a bit slow, but I suppose a lot of chapters that end in a bit of suspense do. Can't wait to read Chapter 18!
Hmmmmm . . . everything is happening all over again! You like Des ja vous don't you? (not really sure how that's spelled) Great chapter, I cannot wait for the next one!
Summary: Since the tragedy at the Astronomy Tower, Harry has become an even more formidable wizard, but a shocking revelation may mean the difference between life and death for The Boy Who Lived. It is the final stage of Harry's quest to destroy Lord Voldemort - can he save the Wizarding World and those he loves from the treachery of the Dark Lord... and also save himself? [Action takes place in media res towards the end of Harry's Seventh Year at Hogwarts (Post-HBP).]
An amazing ending to an amazing fan fiction. Yes, I am sure, this is the best one I have read, or probably ever will read. I do hope Deathly Hallows is similar to this, it would be awesome if it was. Then again, I think you share brainwaves with JK Rowling so . . . About the epilogue, it was a bit of a different Harry, but then again you did make him a bit older. I always thought the epilogue would not include talking, but your spin on it changed my mind. It would be too boring otherwise. I shall be eagerly awaiting the prequel!
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! This totally made my day! It's only a matter of time now. Hurry up administrators, I need to read "The Scar!" PS- By the way I love your Halloween artwork!
I reviewed this a while back when Chapter 12 first came out, but after re-reading the fan fic I noticed a couple of things that didn't make a whole lot of sense to me. Which one of Harry's hands have turned withered? Sometimes it is the left and other times the right. And how did Ron and Hermione free themselves from the Full Body Bind BEFORE Harry died? Just curious. Anyway, Chapter 13 is gonna be amazing, I just know it. The whole story is. Until then . . .
Author's Response: You rock for finding that inconsistency. I\'d been writing \"Dumbledore\'s right hand\" that whole chapter and forgot that Harry\'s withered hand is his left! Anyway, the mistake has been corrected. Thank you!
As to your other questions, they will definitely be answered in the last chapter, which I am struggling to finish by Halloween. Wish me luck and hopefully I\'ll see you back when it\'s up!
Author's Response: Okay. I changed my mind. Right hand it is. As you were. ;)
Sorry I haven't gotten around to reviewing before now! What an amazing story! This is by far the best fic I have read so far. I agreed with a lot of the theories you put in it, and I read this and it was like seeing them all combined in one story much better than I could ever attempt. I've told all of my friends that like Harry Potter to read this. It's that good. You are a great writer, and I cannot wait until you update!
Better make this quick, the review I just typed didn't go through. All in all, I was not one bit disappointed. A wonderful chapter that is going to keep me anticipating the epilouge every day. And I figured out the symbolism of Harry's dream! (Bumblebees with white beards, bumblebee = Dumbledore. Right?)
Author's Response: I\'m so glad you came back to tell me what you thought - seems MNFF has been having a few glitches with reviews today. Anyway, thanks so much - I worried a bit that people would be let down after waiting so long for this chapter, but if you liked it, then all the better! *hugs*
Author's Response: And I almost forgot! You are spot on in your interpretation of Harry\'s dream! Well done :D
Summary: *Post HBP* Harry's life becomes more and more complicated as time passes. A certain person continues to bother Harry's heart, but he knows what is best. If Voldemort knew...she could get hurt. Harry leaves her and goes on to finally defeat Voldemort. But, not everything is okay after the final battle. He won't wake up. But, there's is something much worse. Will she stay by him faithfully or will it be too much?
*wow guys...i'm so sorry i havent updated in a while. im not going to make excuses other than say that my computer with the story on it broke--so i'm rewriting the last few chapters. SORRY FOR THE DELAY AND THANK YOU TO ALL MY LOYAL READERS!*
WHAT DO YOU MEAN SHE SAID NO?!?!?!?!?!?!? AFTER ALL THEY HAVE BEEN THROUGH SHE GIVES HIM A NO?!?!?!?! WHAT THOUGHT COULD HAVE POSSIBLLY CONVINCED HER TO DO THAT? POOR HARRY'S HEART MUST BE BROKEN! PLEASE UPDATE, I NEED TO KNOW! However, I was sooooo happy when he woke up and when he opened his great bright green eyes.
I absolutely love this story! I have read a lot of H/G fan fics from after HBP, but this is the first one that Ginny's argument seems possible and reasonable. It is so Harry and so Ginny. I hope this is a lot like what will happen in book 7 because it is so great!
Author's Response: Wow, thank you very much! I think that this is one of the best reviews that I have ever gotten! And I am so glad that you think that the story is reasonable and possible.
Finally! A new chapter! (happy dance!) I was so glad when I saw the update! I can't wait for chapter seven. By the way, am I being too suspicious to suspect that the clerk is a Death Eater using Polyjuice Potion?
Author's Response: hmmm....I\'m not sure. ;) WW
Summary: While walking by the lake Harry discovers an ordinary bottle floating in the water with something extraordinary inside it; a letter from an unnamed Hogwart's student that will change Harry's life. The magic of the bottle makes it so only those with true love in their hearts can open it. As always, please leave a review
The First Letter, the Lily/James prequel is now on the site.
Your first fan fic? That was REALLY well written. It is Ginny . . . isn't it? If it isn't, then I have no idea who it could be. I love the letter and bottle concept, it is so creative. Please update soon, soon, SOON!
Author's Response: Yeah, this is my first one. I actually just wanted to start out on a one-shot.... but it kind of just ran away from me, so now, it's looking like a four chapter one. Thanks so much for the review, I will try and update as fast as possible, but ch. 2 has been in there forever, so I'm not really sure what's going on. We'll see.
Summary: How can you possibly accept the end, if it comes too soon? When the begining has just started and you should still have the middle to look forward to. When there should be no end. Ginny will discover this and the pain one feels...my first fic! Enjoy and don't forget to review! :D
THE SEQUEL IS....UP!!!! *bounces up and down* HOW EXCITING!!!! Once again its in the Ron and Hermione AND Harry/Ginny section and its called Clouds on the Horizon! PLEASE READ!!!!!!! http://fanfiction.mugglenet.com/viewstory.php?sid=42091
Sad yet wonderful! I was kinda glad you had Harry die; I'm sort of like how Ginny is in that fic, I don't want Harry to die but I know he probably will in book 7. It was good to see someone write that ending for a change. One thing though . . . did Harry know Ginny was pregnent? I can't wait to read your next one!
Author's Response: YAY! You think my story is wonderful! I can't thankyou enough for your kind words, and I'm glad I pleased you with Harry's death. It is sad, but, like you said, it is likely he will die. And also *GASP* I DIDN'T MENTION IF HARRY KNEW! Well, it would be interesting, but he does know Ginny is pregnant. The next story is....UP! Its in the Ron/ Hermione AND Harry/Ginny section and its called, 'Clouds on the Horizon' I'm going to post the second chapter after I've written this response, and it makes it perfectly clear in that chpater if Harry knew or not. :) THANKS AGAIN!!!

Yeah, I'm the first reviewer! Great story, I can't wait to read more. Also, will we find out what the title means soon?
Summary: Post Hogwarts fic about two friends reunited after eight years apart. In this chapter, Harry finds out that he still loves Ginny, despite his new girlfriend.
Wow, what to say?!?!?!?! First, let me say that Nickelback is one of my fav bands, and I was drawn to this fic becasue of the title, Photographs, because of the song with the same title! I was so happy when I found the lyrics in Chapter 2. The Harry Potter lines made it even better!
Once, again, a great chapter with some great photographs! I am not sure if you are familiar with the show LOST, but I can't help feeling that you watch it and luv it like I do. In case you do not know, one of the main characters, Jack, had a wife named Sarah, who you see in his flashbacks, and I cannot stand her! Eventually the marriage ended, which made me soo happy! Anyway, just curious. Please get Chapter 4 out soon!
Summary: Sequel to Revenge of the Serpent. The title is taken from a One Tree Hill episode title.
Don't even tell me . . . if those kids are Cormac's I will SCREAM!
Author's Response: maybe... maybe not...
Summary: Dave Jensen thought Harry Potter was just a fun story - that is, until he found out that his best friend was a witch. Join Dave as he learns her true identity and helps her to stop running from her past.
This is a semi-fluffy, and really quite silly (hey, that rhymed!) one-shot.
I love the concept of this story, especially the Rita Skeeter=J.K. Rowling thing.
Author's Response: Yeah, I\'m not sure where that idea came from, but once I thought of it, I couldn\'t not use it. I\'m really glad you liked the story.

So Voldemort was never defeated? Or am I just reading it wrong? Good story so far, although you freaked me out when he said Kirsten's godfather was Dudley.
Author's Response: You\'re reading it right...just keep going. Everything gets explained.
Summary: Iduna Snape is worried about her brother. He's been different this summer. Changing. She feels as though she's lost her best friend. Can she do anything to save him?
Wow. I just want to say, I am impressed with anyone who can write a backround story about Snape because he is such a complex character with so many sides. The story of Iduna is by far the best Snape story I have read to date. I think this would be a fantastic reason for Dumbledore to have trusted Snape. Keep writing! I love One Last Golden Day, and though I have not gotten to your other stories yet, I plan on reading them soon.
Author's Response: *Squees* Thanks! That really means a great deal to me. I was so proud of this plotline, because it seemed so plausible to me. Thanks so much for reading! I\'m glad you are enjoying my stories *grins* ~ashley
