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.

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.
Summary: PRE-HBP!!! Harry starts out his sixth year in sorrow at the loss of Sirius. Ginny helps him to overcome it, and our heroes learn a lot about life and love. This story has been completed! Special thanks to my mod, Danielle and to my fantastic readers!
NOOOOOOOOO! NOT REMUS! I hope you're happy, i just sobbed my poor heart out! Remus was the best, it's not fair! Sometimes you can be so mean! (I still love your story though, hehe!)
Author's Response: Mean? Me? Let's be honest here. It's not only sometimes. When it comes to my fic, I'm almost always mean! And anyway, I didn't kill Remus, truly I didn't! Well, I did, but it's not my fault!
Summary: A sixth year fic that explores what might happen if Harry moves past the angst and starts to put his life together and has a few things break his way for a change.
I absolutely love this story! you are doing a terrific job, you've captured everyone perfectly. I really like the reference to songs by The Who, i'm a big fan of theirs myself. Keep the good work up and update soon!!
I've been reading your story faithfully at your website and let me tell you just how much i love it, i am positively addicted!
Summary: Post-OOTP Harry and his friends have much more to worry about than classes and homework. They face the constant threat of Death Eaters and Lord Voldemort as the Second War takes hold. As teenagers, their roles in the war are expected to be minimal. However, Harry soon finds he and his friends must play a larger role than they ever imagined. The story will also involve the beginnings of H/G and R/Hr. Chapter 28 submitted! :)
Go Ron! It could only be Ron that would give it to Harry straight, he did it well. It was one of those moments you have with your parents when you're little and they send you to your room and tell you to come back when you decide you're going to behave. I feel really bad for Parvati, but is it really going to be about Harry? That last scene between Harry and Ginny was really sensitive and caring. In short i absolutely adored this chapter and i can't wait to see your next update!
Author's Response: Hmmm... I think you have some insight into the Parvati situation. Glad you liked the last scene. Awww ... you made me feel all warm and fuzzy! Thank you!
I'm sorry it took me so long to get around to reviewing, it's been a busy time for me but i'm here now and i'm going to make up for it!
That was an excellent chapter, i really enjoyed it. A couple of my favourite points were Dumbledore's role reversal on Harry, that was a brilliant plan that worked particularly well. It was just the kind of thing that Dumbledore would do.
I also really liked the way you described Voldemort's attack on Parvati's mind, you took the open book theme and worked it fantastically well, the imagery was great.
Harry and Ginny's interactions were really good as well, i particularly liked Madame Pompfrey's assumption that Ginny was his girlfriend and the red-head's protestation was most conspicuous by it's abscence. I do hope that the pair of them will see sense soon.
Ron's jokes about Hermione liking the fact that he was a boy and that it wasn't his fault he's irresistable really made me laugh. To top it all off, that was a FAB cliffy, and you've left me desperate to know what happens next! *10*
Author's Response: Wow! What a review!
Author's Response: oops! I hit submit before I was done... Note to self: don't answer reviews and chat at same time... :/ Back to my response ... I must admit I was particularly happy with the Parvati sections, esp. Voldie's attack. It's hard to write Dumbledore now ... I get depressed every time, but I'm glad you thought I kept him in-character. Ginny's mind is obviously on other things... wonder what it could be? And finally, dear Ron at the end... he's so fun to write in situations like that, and I wanted some light-heartedness somewhere in such a dark chapter. I was thrilled to see such a detailed review. Thank you SO much! I can't promise a quick update, but once the new school year settles down, I'll hopefully be able to get more writing done. Keep checking back and I'll get that next chapter out as soon as I can! Thanks again mrsgeorge!
That was another fantastic chapter there. Really excellent. The way you described Harry's actions after Hermione read out that newspaper article was terrific. The article itself was impressive too, a lot of people sturggle to capture the tone of the Daily Prophet accurately but you did a sterling job! All the Parvati sections were superb, I particularly liked the imagery of walking a tight rope. If the last bit was hard for you to write it certainly didn't show. This chapter is probably amongst your best, the writing was of an exceptionally high standard. Well Done!
Author's Response: **blushes** Wow. Thank you! Anytime I need a pick-me-up I'll just come back to this review. You've touched on everything that I was worried about and made me feel a hundred times better. Thank you so much for taking the time for another detailed review! I truly appreciate it.
Ooooooh that was good! I really like your story so far and i love the playfulness between Harry and Ginny. I'm looking forward to you next chapter.
Author's Response: Thanks so much!
Summary: This story starts during the summer between Harry's fifth and sixth year. It follows his journey from the skinny, guilt-ridden Boy Who Lived to the Man Who Would Defeat Voldemort. Some H/G and R/Hr romance. Chapter 50 is up!!!! STORY COMPLETE!!! Written pre-HBP. This story no longer follows cannon.
Yet another fantastic chapter, with an evil but great clifffhanger. I can't wait for the next chapter. I keep checking back every day!
That was a fantastic chapter! The work was worth it because the end result was brilliant. I'm hooked - update ASAP pllleeeeaaasssseeee?
This is soooo good!. You've really captured the characters and J.K's style. I can't wait for you to update
I would bet all my gold in gringotts that there at a jewellery shop... okay so i don't have any gold in gringotts but you get the sentiment. Great chapter, you write so well. *10*
i'm really enjoying this, keep up the fantastic work!
that was a great chapter! i'm really enjoying your story, keep up the fantastic work *10*
I'm not sure if i can put in to words how much i loved that chapter! It was great. No scratch that it was so much better than great, it was very sentimental and i happen to be that kind of person. My favourite part had to bee the line about Ron and Hermione's ornaments, that one had me in stitches. I'm looking forward to the next update! *10*
Such a great chapter! Big, evil cliff ahoy! Really excited at the prospect of the last chapter but a little bit sad because i've enjoyed reading your story so much. Will there be a sequel
Such a good chapter, i loved it!
Rated: [Reviews - ]
First again this must be my lucky day! There seem to be some minor format errors in this chapter so you might want to take a look at it, seems to be the quotation marks thatare most affected. That aside it was a really good chapter, i loved Fred at the end. Harry and Ginny brewing... i like that a lot. Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing and for letting me know about the errors. I'll take a look at the chapter. Keep reviewing and reading and I'll keep on writing!
Oooh! Intruiging, i like a good cliffhanger, i'm even known to use them sometimes. I really like the way you write and you have made a magnificent start. I'm going on to chapter 2 now...
Author's Response: Thanks!
I like. Alot. I absolutely love Fred and George in this chapter, (as my username would suggest i am a fan). You did an excellent job especially with Sirius's speech to Harry, i got a little tear in my eye then.
Author's Response: I love them too! They are great! I'm really glad you liked this chapter! Thanks for the review!
Another very good chapter, i love the way you describe Ron's reactions and the way Mrs. Weasley was when Harry showed up is exactly how i would have imagined her bieng. Your doing a great job so keep up the good work.
Author's Response: Thanks! :)
