I, like everyone else here, I love Harry Potter! But after waiting so long for the 6th book I was very dissappionted! I didn't like that Dumbledore had to die and thought the book was too short! Now I'm a H/HR shipper, so it made me mad that Harry all of a sudden likes the new, barbie doll made over, Ginny bloody sodding Weasley. And what really made me mad was that Hermione and Ron are looking to get together! I know Harry and Ginny won't last, but Ron and Hermione *GRR* !!! So Harry better hook up with Hermione NOW before Ron does! I also highly recommend Hutchinson's Luna's Truth or Dare and anything written by livingbreathingdream and my favorite author SecretKeeeper.
I am now offically NON-CANON!!!!!!!!
Got to keep the hope!!!!!
UPDATE: Guys, I'm back!
The innocence I’ve lost
The blood it's cost
Leaves unhealed scars within.
But I will not abate,
I will employ the hate
That has been planted deep inside.
I will not falter
Valor will not tire,
And I will survive
This trial by fire.
Many things are different now. Potions class is the least of the trio's worries. Battling dragons would be a welcome alternative to what it is they're attempting to battle now. The Order of the Phoenix is hallow without its leading member. And when someone close to Harry is stolen, Dumbledore's rhetoric of love, hope, and faith is challenged. Harry's strength and resolve are pushed to their limits. Loyalties are tested and new leaders emerge while Harry and Hermione struggle to balance new emotions and uncharted territory. Yet while this time after sixth year proves to be drastically unlike anything Harry's ever experienced, some truths remain, and some affections stand solid.
A novel-type story that explores the engimas of Snape, Horcruxes, war, and above all, the puzzle of love. HBP compliant. HHr.

Secretkeeper, its been 9 months, and I think that you've given up this story. It looks like your not finishing it, and I'm so sad because this was easily my favorite story despite the fact that it wasn't finished. I want you to know that your one of the best authors ever.
A very depressed reviewer

That is so original and make a lot of sense!! If you counldn't tell already i LOVE this chapter!! The intense emotion has you waiting, breathless with what could possibly happen!! I can't wait for the next chapter!!
Simply amazing. This chapter was so intense. I can't believe how big a cliff hanger that was!! I LOVE your story soooooo much!!!! The word "fine" was ingenious it amazed me! You really get lost in the your story!!! When Harry was deciding what to do I wanted to scream NOOOO HARRY!! DON'T DO IT!!! I can't wait for your next chapter!!! Can't wait to see more with Harry, Hermione, and Ron!! Once again your story is simply AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
P.S. I give it the same rating infinite/10!!!
Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much!! What a review! *blushes* Yeah, I have to admit it was quite painful writing Harry's decision... but of course, not near as bad for me, since I know what's going to happen. ;) Thanks again love, next chapter's for you! :)
NOOOOOOOOOOO NOT HAGRID!!!!! WHY DID HE HAVE TO DIE!!!!!!! Besides that part I LOVED this chapter. I was holding my breath during the Harry and Hermione encounter! I guessed right it was a dementor!!!!! I can't wait to see how Harry is going to pull that one off!! PLEASE UPDATE SOON! I got to know how Harry will reaction to this! Once again you write beautifully and just put me in the story!!!!! Please continue writing!!!!
P.S. I loved the poem in the beginning and the end!!!!!!
It's been FIFTEEN months since your last update. This is my fifth review for this chapter, and hopefully my last. Its not fair that something as great as your work goes unfinished, but JKR's crap gets finished and she gets paid for it. I can't really give up hope that you might update, so I'll sit and wait. This probably makes me delusional, but I've been called that before and I will wear that title proudly. I will forever beg for an update. You really have to finish this. Please.
A hopelessly delusional desperate reviewer.
I hope you haven't given up on this story. It's my favorite!! It's been 6 months since you last updated. PLEASE UPDATE SOON!!!
I LOVE how you write!!!!!! That was beautiful!!! You could feel the tension as you read it, like you were there in the room!!! I like how you don't have them getting together right away!! Your story is so real!!! Your writing left me speechless!!! This is by far my favorite story and your my favorite author!!! I really think that if you write a book people will LOVE it!!! You really should have written the HP books!!! You really are very talented!!! PLEASE continue writing and PLEASE UPDATE SOON!!!!!!
Author's Response: Oh, wow! Thank you so much HPAndHG! What stunning compliments! Also, thank you for being so consistent with your reviews. I always look forward to what you have to say. And I really can\'t tell you how relieved I am that you didn\'t think this chapter was rubbish. Once I realized how long it had been since my previous update, I sort of went into panic mode and forced myself to write it. I\'ve had this story mapped out for a while, so it wasn\'t about figuring it out; it was just about wording everything properly, to spark the emotion and imagery I try to exude. So I really wasn\'t sure about this one. But, I guess one can never accurately judge their own work, right? Which makes me so glad I have a judge as fantastic as you. :)
Wow that was so emotional!!! I cried during the first part of the story! Your writing really made me feel their pain and sorrow!!!! I got scared when they were in the house! And I got mad to see Snape there!!! I agree with you about the Hermione/Ron thing, but I hope that doesn't last to long!! ^_^ I think people are very used to seeing a OCC Hermione, that seems very in character, than a Hermione that is not perfect and doesn't love Harry right from the beginning. I Ioved this chapter!!! I can't wait to see the confrentation between Harry and Snape!!! PLEASE UPDATE SOON!!!!!!
Author's Response: Awwww *hugs* I\'m sorry for the tears. But I am glad you liked it. : D! And don\'t worry, this is a HHr story, any R/Hr implications will quickly vanish. And the Snape/Harry scene is going to be very... intense. I hope you like it! <3
Summary: Harry returns for his yearly Christmas visit, ten years after Voldemorts death. (P.S. Okay, so my second chapter was too short, but www.harrypotterfanfiction.com accepted it. So if you have been waiting forever, go there and read the next chapter!)
WOW! Please update soon!!!!!!!!!
