My real name is Natalie but everyone calls me Nat-Pat, this is because of my father's evil workmates. The day i was born my dad's best friend put a big sign up in their workshop saying 'Big Dave's got a Nat Pat!' and the name stuck.

This is the Coats Memorial Chruch from chapter 8,
This is actually the church that my University graduation will take place in! Yipee!
And here are the dresses from chapter 9, Mrs Weasley's is Guenevere and the other girls' are Iona.
And here you can find the dress i have in mind for Ellie.
The Harry and Ginny action was excellent! Sod Cho Chang, nobody cares about her! Has he really got to go back to Occlumency with Snape? I'm afraid i don't have a clue what's going to happen next but i kind of like it that way!
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it! Yes, Harry is going back to Snape for lessons and I really hope you like chapter 13 when it's up!
That was such a great chapter!! Apart from the evil cliffy - who am i kidding? even that was great, a little bit of suspense never did anyone any harm! I'm very eager to see the next chapter and i hope they validate it soon!
Author's Response: Hopefully it won't be too long! The last chappy was only 24 hours in the queue. If you can't stand to wait, you could always check out my one shot :)
I'm prayer to just about every god that i can think of that he isn't really dead. Please don't let him be dead! Please! It was an absolutely incredbile chapter, it was amazing but that doesn't mean you can get away with killing Harry! Update ASAP, i'm on the edge of my seat and if you leave me too long i'll end up on the floor! *10*10*10*
Author's Response: dont fall!!!....hopefully the next chapter will be up soon Im dying to see what everyone thinks about it!!!
Okay, so as you know i've been reading Just Married... and i found myself with some spare time on my hands when i remembered that you mentioned you had another fic. So here i am, poised by my computer ready to read and review.
The first chapter was excellent, good description, you managed to capture Harry's attitude really well and the letters were exactly what i would have imagined them to be. The imagery of Ginny sitting up a tree was very cat like. Off to read chapter 2!
Author's Response: Thank you and i hope you continue to enjoy....
The joke was a great way to start the chapter and the little 'What's a little mucus humor between friends' comment made me laugh. It's great that there's a confidence built up between Harry and Ginny and that he feels he can talk to her. I'm interested in what it is she's going to do next! Good stuff!
Author's Response: Yeah I didnt want him just to randomly open up to someone he doesnt even know that well and I always enjoy the mucus humor joke....lol...
That was a fantastic chapter. Ginny's visit was just what Harry need and the scene between the two of them was beautifully written. Well done you!
Author's Response: Thank you!
I love the fact that Ginny walked away, it's bizarre that walking away can be a better comeback than any other, i use that one on my mum all the time and it works a charm! Harry's back , WHOO HOO! Brilliant, i can't wait to see what they get up to next!
Author's Response: yeah...lol....ginny just wasnt in the mood to get yelled at...hehehe
LOVED IT! All the moments where they gave each other little looks and where she touched his hand, all so sweet. I'm glad Mrs Weasley didn't shout at Ginny too much and i'm very excited about the next chapter, Ron/Hermione is my second favourite ship, second to Harry/Ginny that is!
Author's Response: Yeah....i think they have a very sweet relationship.....and i am totally with you on the ships.....
YAY! WHOO HOO! YIPEE! *Does a funky Fred and George style victory dance!* I'm so glad that they finally kissed! The Harry/Ginny stuff was as wonderful as ever! I really like the style in this one, the two conversations seemed to merge together seamlessly, it was great. Keep up the good work! *10* and a big pat on the back for you!
Author's Response: Good Im glad, thats what i was going for so im glad it came across that way....thanks a million!
It is getting really, seriously good! There were a lot of things i loved in this chapter, Harry walking in on Ginny for instance, his reaction was hilarious. I remember a boyfriend i had when i was younger doing that and i swear to god, you could have lit a cavern with the red glow that was eminating from his face. Ginny's little crack about wanting a good eulogy from him was pretty funny as well. Harry seeing the future is a really cool twist, i can't wait to see how that develops. Finally, what a cliffhanger, that was nasty, or at least it would have been if i didn't know that the next chapter is waiting patiently for my attention! *10*
Author's Response: Thank you....this is one of my favorite chapters i've written at least as far as harry ginny interaction....yeah youre lucky...i had some very unhappy readers when i posted this initially...lol
Ginny isn't going to like pouty Harry - Does this mean he's in for a rolicking? I love it when Ginny does that! Although i don't like pouty Harry myself i can understand the way that he's feeling, he went from all to nothing as far as Ginny's concerned and that's really hard.
I know what you mean about the difficulties of writing a battle, it's a troubling spot. I'm so glad that they caught Pettigrew, i hope he suffers! Thank god Tonks is going to be all right, she's a great character and Remus/Tonks stuff tends to be great.
Author's Response: Youre right, Ginny isnt going to be to fond of pouty Harry.....yeah the only battle ive ever written is the final battle for this story and if i can help it it will stay that way.....
THEY WERE SO CLOSE! I wish you could have heard Argh of frustration that i let out when they got so close and pulled away, actually you probably did hear it, it was exceptionally loud. I'm glad that they're back on track and that Ginny let Dean go so she could dedicate the rest of her day to Harry, that was sweet. I loved the alternation of the POVs at the end, when are they going to wake up and smell the coffee? *10* (well deserved too!)
Author's Response: Yeah I think I might have even been a little frusterated when they pulled away and Im the one who wrote it....lol....but Harry and Ginny are totally dense when it comes to their feelings for each other and I'm afriad they stay that way for quite a while......
Dean's on the way out? Cool. The tension between Harry and Ginny is almost too much to bear, if you don't give us some H/G action really soon then we may be forced to hex you. I liked Sirius, he's getting it on with a queen, thats...different, lol :-) I liked Sirius's suggestion about Ginny and Harry's power, very good, lets plant lots of seeds and watch them grow! Another jewel in your crown! (Did you like that tie in?)
Author's Response: That was a very nice tie in hehehe.....yeah the tension is most definitly building and I promise some H/G action soon so their will be no need to hex me.....or maybe their will once your read the chapter I just finished (chapter 15) *in singsong voice* but thats all I'm going to say.....
AAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH! No! No! No! - At least he kissed her before he went - EEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKKKK! I can't believe what's happening, thank god the next chapter's ready! *10*10*10*
Author's Response: Yeah that seems to be the general consensus.....
I need to know what happened! You completely took my breath away! I have not patience, i'm hooked, i'm not sure that i could pull myself away from the computer if my life depended on it!
Author's Response: Well i submitted the next chapter a while ago....i just hope it is up soon!
That was a fantastic chapter! My two favourite parts were Ginny slapping him and telling him he wasn't allowed to die untill she said he could and Sirius's 'party hard and date lots of birds...' line, sheer brilliance. I'm so relieved that you didn't kill off Harry, you had us going for a while there, don't do that again!
Author's Response: Good...Im glad that I was able to keep it a surprise......and i promise i wont kill off anymore of them main characters.....i think.....wait no im lying.....well i promise i wont kill of anymore characters for a long time......
It was great, you never fail to disappoint! I can't wait to see where you take it!
I liked this, i'm interested to see where the relationship between Remus and Elisabeth is going to go. You did great 10/10!
Author's Response: thanks - these reviews are causing my plot bunnies to grow rapidly. *goes to start writing 2nd chapter*
wow...that was beautiful...wow
Author's Response: Thank you, Nat.
This was good, i really liked it!
Author's Response: gracias. nice to know my boredom can be productive enough to entertain someone :-)
