I did get a chance to finish chapter 6 this weekend, and a good portion of chapter seven, which should make everyone a teensy bit happy... I hope. Don't throw rotten fruit, okay. Please?!?
I am going to see how the moderating process is going here, since it's been a long time since I've been posting on this site. If things get hectic, you can always try the story at WattPad, which might be posted faster. :)
I just got the UK versions of the books, just for giggles (I like British humor), and I was interested to note that it is very different than the American versions.
Author's Response: I can imagine they do, but that's dedication, getting both versions. I haven't read the American versions, but I like the British ones.
Great start! I can't wait to read Chapter 2. I am looking forward to seeing where your plot goes. I like the use of color.
Author's Response: Thank you. There's already updates in the works, and the second chapter has been submitted
And, I just wanted to metnion that it depends on which version of the books you buy. In the American versions they use (") for dialogue.
Author's Response: Really? I never knew that. There you go, learn something new every day! They sell the UK versions in Canada, and use ('), so that's what I'm using.
I don’t know what I was expecting when I clicked on the link to this story. Whatever it was, it wasn’t what I got. I was overwhelmed by the emotions that this story evoked. I cried when I tried to finish the story.
A Mother’s Love centers around Ginny and Molly Weasley's relationship. Molly is hit by an ‘experimental’ spell, causing her to forget her entire family. The story follows Ginny through her attempts at entertaining her mother while Arthur looks for the counter spell.
Ginny tried to explain her family, along with her relationship with Harry, to her mother. In turn, Molly tells Ginny about her past, thinking it is the present time. Though their conversations, Ginny learns more about her mother, and herself. Despite her condition, Molly still shows her mothering tendencies and envelopes Ginny in a comforting hug.
Lilypudding does an excellent job of keeping both Ginny and Molly in character, despite Molly’s spell induced time warp. The only character I had some issues with was Arthur. There were some spots where his interactions with Ginny seemed forced.
George said in an almost philosophical way, “No, Mum causes the problems, because she’s too meddling. If Ginny would just open up and talk to her, there’d be no problems. But Ginny doesn’t feel comfortable talking to her.”
Lilypudding used George to describe Molly and Ginny’s relationship perfectly. I’m sure that this is the way many teenagers feel about their parents, and vice versa. All Molly wants from Ginny is for her to open up, but Ginny can’t open up because she isn’t comfortable talking to her mother as a friend.
Molly looked as if Ginny had slashed her with a white-hot knife. A pang of guilt flashed through Ginny.
Lilypudding uses colorful descriptions though out her story. The words seem to leap off the page and pull you into the story.
While the theme of the story is loss and realization, there are several parts where the right amount of humor is added to lighten the ‘heaviness’ of the story.
This is, by far, one of the best stories I have read about the relationship between Ginny and Molly and I would recommend it to everyone who has a box of Kleenex handy.
Author's Response: A million thanks for your review, Khrys. I can\'t believe you took so much time to write such a wonderful review for a story that didn\'t even place in a contest with six entrants. I don\'t believe how nice this review is! I\'m going to be smiling for at least the rest of the year because of this!
Phew. It made me cry a bit. I wish you would do a bit of a follow up. I would love to read more about the connection between the Minister and Harry. I would also like to see Percy's actions after he promises his Mum not to leave. Excellent Story!!
Author's Response: More? Oh gosh I don\'t know. As for the connection I kind of see it this way. The minister has been begging Harry to support the ministry all his 6th year. I think this is because it would help him gain more power in the wizarding world. Now if Harry deafeats Voldemort he is now considered the most powerful person out there. The minister knows Harry\'s veiws on the ministry, which don\'t bode well for him. So to protect his own power he kills Harry. As for Percy I left that open ended on purpose. What do you think he is going to do? Can he learn from his mistakes?
I love the humor! I can picture the scene in the street!
Author's Response: Thanks so much!! I hope you continue reading!!
Author's Response: Thanks a ton!!
Good beginning. I hope that the rest will be a tiny bit happier, though.
Author's Response: Just a teensy tiny itsy bitsy witsy smidgen.... But its wont be all rainbows and butterflies. Or will it...? hehehe...
I was not disappointed. This chapter is much lighter than the prologue and was very cute!
Author's Response: Cute? Hmmm... I guess when you have a purpose, you don\'t look for the cuteness. Thank-you.
Excellent chapter!!! The bit in the forest made me cringe. I could just imagine Nathan on the floor, bleeding profusely. I wonder why he didn't want Harry to take him from Snape? Again, Snape's thoughts and emotions are real and painful. Great job!
Author's Response: The Forest scene made me ache. Poor foolish Nathan!
Nathan feels comfortable with Snape; he trusts him.
And poor Snape...
Thanks for reading and reviewing, I really appreciate it. :0)
The scene between Hermione and Snape was so real it made me cry. I can only imagine the pressure he felt, and the understanding that must have passed between the, despite Snape's inability to admit it. I wonder if he still harbors feelings for her? Hermione didn't seem to hate what happened (I don't mean the rape, but the act of saving her by raping her), but she thinks that Snape did. I wonder. Excellent story and I will be on the edge of my seat, sitting on my hands, waiting for the next chapter. And, again, sorry for not reviewing sooner. This has been on my favorites list since the beginning!
Author's Response: Awww! *hands tissue*
Snape feels really guilty for all he had to do. He can\'t forgive himself. Sad...
Hermione knows he did what he had to do to save her and that he didn\'t like it one bit.
Do you think he had feelings for her already? Hmmm.
Khrys, thank you very much for the wonderful reviews. I loved them. :0)
I can't believe how wonderful this story is. Every time I see that a new chapter is up, I rush to read it. Your interactions between Snape and Nathan, Hermione and Nathan, and Hermione and Snape are incredible. I could feel Nathan's pain. Incredible!
Author's Response: I\'m glad you enjoy the interactions. I like writing them. :0)
Thanks for reading and reviewing, Khrys! :0)
I love the exploration of Diagon Alley. So very detailed and just like I would imagine it. I can't wait for more!
Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked it. :0) Thanks for reading and reviewing, Khrys! :0)
Another excellent chapter. I am eagerly anticipating the revelation of the identity of Nathan's father. I love the suspense that is building and the pressure you are putting on Hermione. Now that she's in the castle, maybe she'll get to spend some quality time with Snape, eh?
Author's Response: Thanks, Khrys! :0)
Hermione\'s situation only goes worse. Her presence in the castle will lead to more time with Snape, but if it will be quality time... ;0)
Thanks for reading and reviewing, as always, Khrys! :0)
Awesome! I am really stuck on this. I can't wait for more.
Author's Response: Thanks, Khrys. Keep reading and reviewing! :0)
Wow! Another excellent chapter. I really like how you are delving into the relationship with Nathan and Snape long before Snape and Hermione have anything really happening between them. The duel happened exactly how I would have pictured it, giving Nathan fuel for his admiration and Snape fuel for his anger. I really love where this story is heading!
Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked the chapter and the pacing of the story.
The duel had to happen like that, I\'m glad you agreed.
Thanks for reading and reviewing, Khrys! :0)
Another excellet chapter. I love the interaction between Snape and Nathan. I also like his private joke, it reminds me of Hermione. I wonder why?
Author's Response: Thanks, Khrys! :0) I\'m glad you\'re enjoying Nathan and how he interacts with Snape. Keep reading and reviewing! :0)
Excellent chapter. I cringed when I read that Snape was behind the bookcase listening to Nathan. I think that Snape will be a mean, uh, guy when Nathan is in detention. I wonder if he will slip and reveal something in detention?? It seems like Nathan is noticing some oddities. Maybe he will figure it out for himself someday. I love the letters, they really make me think of Hermione as a mom. I really like where this story is going and I am on pins and needles waiting for another chapter. *Sorry it has taken me so long to review, I promise I wasn't neglecting you for another.*
Author's Response: Thanks! :0)
I hope Snape won\'t be too mean in his detention with Nathan, but you\'re probably right. Poor Nathan...
Do you think Snape knows something? Or Nathan, perhaps? Hmmm...
I\'m glad you liked the letters. :0)
I\'ll never think you were neglecting my story! Look how long it took me to answer your review, and believe me, I wasn\'t neglecting it, either. :0)
Thanks for another wonderful review, Khrys! :0)
What a great chapter. I love getting the email that says you've updated! I can't wait for more.
Author's Response: Thanks, Khrys! :0) I\'m glad you\'re enjoying the fic. Keep reading and reviewing! :0)
I don't recall how I happened across your story, but I have been following it from its inception. Somehow, in my immense idiocy, I have managed to enjoy it without leaving you a single review. Shame on me! Therefore, I shall start immediately.
I love the start of the story. Nathan's letter is perfect. Hermione's thoughts and emotions are right on. From the beginning, I have been intrigued by how you would define a Snape/Granger child.
Author's Response: You shouldn\'t have bothered with reviews, but I do appreciate your opinions. :0)
I\'m glad you liked Hermione in this first chapter. Nathan is intriguing to write. :0)
Thanks for reviewing.
