I love your 'There they were' series! I've read it countless times, and still isn't old! I'll probably read it few hundred more times!
Author's Response: Thank you, Leah. How wonderful that you enjoy them so much. Those were the two first stories I ever wrote for the fandom. I wanted them to be different than the other stories out there that had them falling in love on their wedding night.
I love this story! I have read it multiple times and I never get tired of it! I love this whole series! Severus and Hermione's kids are great! I love how they get their TV taken away... And Galaxy Quest...Alan Rickman is everywhere! Good story!
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m so very happy you enjoyed this. I particularly like the way this story came out. LOL, Crooks and Osiris are TVholics.
OMG! I loved that! It was so funny! You used the twins to the best of their ability... That is so how Hermione would have reacted! Good job!
Wow. Your description is beautiful. I felt like I was there with him. I could see it all and feel it all.
Rodolphus has always been a character that I wondered about, this really sheds new light on him.
I like how you described his marriage and relationship with Bellatrix, I have always thought of her as the dominate one.
You can make gorgeous banners and amazing stories...*bows in respect*
I really like this story so far! I love the dynamic between the Weasley's you really do that well! I can't wait to read more! *wonders if Fred and George could help me find a man*
*Wipes away tear...* I love this. I've never read a story about when Lily told James she was pregnant. It is written beautifully. I loved how they interacted. That is how I had imagined Lily would have teased James and how he would have teased her. It was bittersweet, because of what I know to happen later, but you made my forget for a moment that they don't live happily ever after. Very well done!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for that lovely review. You really seem to have gotten the essence of the story :-)
No you didn't! I have tears in my eyes...It was beautiful and tragic. I...*takes deep breath in* It was well written. I wasn't expecting the ending.
Molly was very well written. Her thoughts were what I would expect them to be. She mourned for lost loved ones and put on a brave front for the living ones. She wasn't the same Molly we have all seen, she had changed, in a realistic way, because of the war. She would have done that at the end, kept the newspaper from Ron, at least for a short while. She is a Molly that had lost a lot and still lives on, no matter how hard it is.
It was a heart wrenching story. But a good one.
Author's Response: Hey Leah! *waves* Oh, I know - I did! I\'m sorry, so sorry... Thanks so much for all your thoughts on this, I\'m really glad you liked Molly\'s characterization, as I was worried some people wouldn\'t. It must have been so hard for her, having to carry a thousand burdans after the war, then this came and presented one more for her. But she shouldered it to save her son from having to do so as well, at least for a little while. I\'m really pleased that you liked it, thanks for reviewing!
I love it! Dream boy has name...
I have a question though...How could professor Binns hold a letter in his hands when he is a ghost?
Nessa is the champion! Yea! I hope...
Author's Response: Well, ghosts can hold objects, can\'t they? I always thought they could. Oh, well. I loved the end of your review \"Yeah! I hope\" It pretty much sums up all that\'s going to happen in the fic. *giggles* Thanks for the review!
oh...cat fight! *sits and waits for the next one* No mystery guy? *is sad*
I like this one. From his mums letter I can see that Ariel's parents are interesting and funny.
I can't wait to read more!
Author's Response: I like cat fights too! lol, Don\'t worry, Bahir will come back the next chapter. ;) I\'ll try and update as soon as posible! Thanks for the review!
It was good. Very original. I loved the snowball fight.
I don't know if there is a prequel to this, or if this is a sequel. But it was a little hard to follow at times, with names of non-canon characters and such.
Charlie is how I always pictured him, there isn't much about him in the books, but that is how I think he would be.
You captured the post war feeling very well. Harry and Ginny both dead...(wipes tears away)
The growing of Charlie and Verity as a couple was nice, I like that she is a Squib, it adds depth to her.
Overall I like it! Two thumbs up!
Oh...I like the cliff-hanger. Will Draco get to her in time? Find out next time on... I really need to stay away from the sugar. Anyway, I love it. It is well thought out and the new characters are well done, not shallow.
Author's Response: thanks! you\'ll find out what happens...in the next chapter so hang on :D!
It's Seventh Year, and the new Headmaster has decreed that students must take some sort of course to fulfill the new Art Requirement. Our favourite characters have decided to take Drama. What kind of hilarity will ensue when the night of the first dress rehearsal arrives? Expect Hagrid as a Tree, Ron as Godric Gryffindor and Malfoy as the Amazing "Dancing" Ferret.
Ron/Luna, Prof. Pat/Hermione, Blaise/Himself
Okay, I love the Loin King and I sang along with Sal...maybe I shouldn't admit that...
I love it! It had imagination. Draco as a ferret again! I loved how you added real songs from real musicals. I laughed aloud more than once. I don't think there is a thing I would change.
Very nicely done!
(giggles uncontrollably) I love this! Snape is bit OOC, but I don't care!
The whole Archmage of Camlann thing is a good idea, it brings the whole piece together.
You did a great job of flowing between memories and the present.
And I like the story line. I like Severus.
You made the relationship between them believable, which is hard to do!
Again, two thumbs up! (but not in the Australian way)
Author's Response: Thank you, leah! And thanks for the two thumbs up (not in the Australian way)!
I enjoyed this very much! You characterized young Draco and godfather Severus nicely. I liked the banter between them; it mirrored their relationship later on in life, I think. I don’t have anything bad to say about this story. I really did enjoy it! I am taking a break from school work and stumbled upon this, and I couldn’t be happier that I did!
You made Draco just enough of a brat without making him too obnoxious, I liked that. Severus’ thoughts about putting Draco to bed were very much like him and something I could hear him thinking.
I loved how, in the end, you gave Severus something for him to connect to Draco with. ‘You might, once, when small, have been afraid. Not afraid of, but just afraid.’ I really like this line and how it ties them together.
Overall, amazing! I can’t wait to read more from you!
Author's Response: Darn it, the thing ate my reply. Anyway -- thanks! I\'m glad you enjoyed this little study break, since oddly enough that\'s what I did to write it, too. There\'s just something about graduate programs...
The other fic with Draco and Severus in it is \"Discovering the Bible...\" if you were interested in seeing more of their connections and hostilities. It\'s a different sort of story, immediately post-HBP.
oh...I like this a lot. It shows her emotion really well. One part seemed a little out of place to me though..."You’re always conscious of your surroundings.
You’re always alert." I didn't understand why that was there, but besides that I loved it. Your choice of words described the feelings very well.
Author's Response: Thank you for your nice review. I\'m sorry for not typing more but I\'m totally blank roght now :-)
aw...I love this story. It shows the relationship between Luna and her father so well. It also shows why she is the way she is. I loved it!
Author's Response: Thanks, whitty for that short but sweet review!
I have never read anything you have written until now and all I can say is: I have been missing out!
This story was brilliant! It had such sorrow and longing, it almost hurt to read it. You went into characters that I haven’t read a lot about and you gave them soul and life. A harsh and difficult life, but you wrote it beautifully. I felt as though I was there with them, your imagery was very well written. I could see the cave and field as I read it.
The characters were in such pain and they were all clinging to hope while being too afraid to discover if their hope was true. It was amazing. They all were different while all having the same mindset. Dreaming of a different life, but not doing anything to get to that life.
Cho shocked me. She was in such dispar. However, you kept her believable without her becoming annoying or over-the-top.
I was a bit confused when Cho had her hallucination, that part seemed a bit out of sorts. But, she was hallucinating, so it worked.
Overall, this story is moving and dark, it goes into characters in a way few stories do. Great job.
Moony my old friend,
*giggles* I really love this! The dynamics of each character are great! The way they mix and interact is hilarious!
I can't write Quidditch to save my life! You did it, and did it well!
I have never thought about Remus and his Quidditch skills, but after reading this, I think he would have been horrible at it as well. Or at least he would much rather read than fly around with Bludgers hurling at him!
One little thing, you have Sirius and I think James once call Remus, Moony. But I thought they didn't know about his 'furry little problem' until later...around the age of fifteen.
I love how you ended this story! This totally would have happened! There is no way those people could pay Quidditch with one another and not have started fighting!
Overall, this fic is great, funny, and believable! Great job, luv!
Author's Response: Hey, watch it, my not so old friend! :) *hugs* I\'m glad you liked this little glimpse of my favorite characters in the whole wide world! I\'m also glad you liked the Quidditch, as that was the point of the writing exercise. I have to say, I enjoy writing it a bit, but I would not want to have to write it for 7 books. No wonder JKR had Umbridge ban Harry in book 5. LOL About them calling Remus Moony, they learned he was a werewolf in his second year, but became Animagi in their 5th, so they wouldn\'t have gotten their nicknames until around 15 or so, but I thought it was just like them to give Remus his, as soon as they knew. So that is why. :) I think I enjoyed writing the little bit of fighting more than the Quidditch. *giggle* I\'m really glad you liked it and thank you so much for the terrific review.
Oh my...that was amazing. I loved that. It was sad and happy. You balanced the different emotions really well. There were tears, chuckles, and smiles. I was very well written. You pulled everything together at the end and left the reader hope for later in the characters lives. Amazing!
"The rain was falling steadily, echoing her unfading feeling of melancholy." I love this line! It just stuck out for me.
You did a great job with capturing the mood of the piece. The emotion was described really well. You could feel Ginny's sorrow.
I wonder though, where is everyone else? I know Hermione survived and I am guessing Ron. But where are they and the rest of her family? I don't see them leaving her alone in her misery. I could Molly and the twins trying to make her feel better, especially on the day Harry proposed.
Author's Response: You had me laughing SO hard when I read \'where is everyone else?\' Everyone tends to rave about this story for some reason, saying how sad it is; it\'s like it\'s just Ginny\'s world. Then you point out that I\'m only missing something-- everyone else. Lol, I don\'t know. I guess they all died or something?? I don\'t know why I put Hermione in it and not Ron, and I don\'t know where Ginny\'s family is. I guess I should just say \'uber character death\' in my summary. LOL thanks for the review!
