I may be young, but I'm very Harry Potter geeky. My family makes fun of me for it. Hey, it's not my fault that J.K. Rowling created this amazing world that I can't get enough of! :P
Heh. Yeah, about me not updating. Sorry about that. I have this weird problem where I can't finish stories. I'm keeping it here, though. Just don't expect an update any time soon. Sorry to anyone who's disappointed.
Summary: So what was REALLY going on while Harry was being forced to stay at the Dursley’s? How did everyone end up at Headquarters, anyway? Will Ron ever get the courage to tell Hermione how he feels? Here’s the story of what was happening while Harry wasn’t at Number 12, Grimmauld Place that summer before fifth year.
Wow! Over 6000 reads!
GAH!!!!!!!!!! PLEASE TELL ME THAT'S NOT THE END!!!!!!!! That was quite a cliffhanger! Oh, please update soon!!!
Author's Response: yeah! that\'s the end! sorry! but you can read my other stories if you haven\'t done that already.
Summary: Ronald Weasley struggles with his teaspoon's worth of emotions during Hermione's stay at the Burrow summer after fifth year. With the Twins succumbing the household to spontaneous product trials, and a new Minister of Magic, one would think that Hermione's Bulgarian pen pal would be the least of Ron's problems.
And that would be what one would get for thinking.
Surprises abound (the Good and the Bad) assure the Weasleys and their house guest this will be a summer all but one of them will never forget.
Final chapter is in queue. Wow, that took forever, didn't it?
Ooooooohhh...big cliffhanger!!! GAH!!!! You know what I think? I think that on Krum's arm is going to be some tatoo of some unknown girl's name. I dunno...I think that makes a good twist. Great story so far, I like how you added Krum in. I have always loved to hate Krum. and your story has increased that thanks!!
Author's Response: *gigglesnort* Hey, you were close! It\'s actually a big red heart that read \"I love Mom\". You don\'t believe me, do you? I hope not. Thanks for the review, hon.
YAY!!!!!!! There's finally a new chapter!!!!!!!!
That chapter was BEAUTIFUL, absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! You really are an AMAZING writer. I think you said that was the ending, and it makes me sad, but it was a fabulous ending. The only thing I'm wondering, is was the baby a boy or a girl? It doesn't really matter, obviously, I'm just curious! Anyway, GREAT JOB, and write more stories!!
Summary: Hermione Granger thinks that Ron will never love her and it's making her very depressed. Will a walk in the rain help her out?
Awww...that is sooooo sweet!!!! I love how you kept repeating the line "Why would he love an ugly bookworm like me?" And I LOOOOOOOOVED how Ron responded!!! Great story!!!
Summary: Remember when Harry went down to Hagrid's to get Slughorn's memory? The only mention of Ron and Hermione is Lavender demanding to know why Ron was up in the boys' dormatories with Hermione. I, myself, would have rather seen how that played out, and joined Harry later. But, sorrowfully, we didn't, and, thus, a fanfic was born.
Slightly OOC on the part of some characters, but not too much!
Thanks to all who reivewed!!
Ha ha...I love the last sentence! And that was soo good, I like fluffy one-shots like this. Or fluffy anything, really. :P But anyway, amazing fic, and funny ending!
Author's Response: thanks
Summary: The most succinct summary ever!! My "Book 7" told with revolving POVs from Hermione, Ron and Harry's perspectives. It's got it all! Romance, mystery, intrigue, Horcruxes, humor, international travel, house-elves, new characters, Voldy, the Burrow, and at least one wedding...
Sorry I didn't review sooner, my computer was screwy. Oh, and the first time I reviewed, I hadn't read the chapter, it wasn't validated yet. :) Anyway, that was another ah-mazing chapter! I LOVED the conversation between Snape and Fiora and Hermione! And that Snape was only pretending to cast the Stastasi spell on them. Right? I actually had a dream about this chapter. It was Hermione and Ron who were in the Oublettium, not Fiora. And they had to battle a Chinese Fireball to get out. Yeah, yeah, I'm weird, I know. :)
Author's Response: OMG! I am infiltrating my readers\' dreams...spooky!!! Yeah, Snape was faking it. You\'ll find out soon why, I promise. I appreciate you reading and reviewing so consistently!! ~ Your Author
Yay!!!! A fluffy romance-ey chapter!!!! Too bad I can't read it yet...it's not validated...:( Oh well, I didn't give it enough time to be validated anyway. :P
Author's Response: That\'s really odd - keep checking. I just got an email from the mod saying it was approved and posted. ;-) Hope you enjoy!
Ooooh, fun fun!! Can't wait to read it!! Why do I always review before the chapter is validated?? :D
Author's Response: Tradition! ;-) Thanks for being so excited for each new chapter. This one should be up soon!
Yay! New chapter! NO! It's not validated yet!! Hee hee, do you know how long it takes to validate? You posted it yesterday, so I don't know...
Author's Response: Ummmm...I would say, usually, when MNFF is at it\'s best, 3-4 days. Sometimes up to a week. Once, it took almost TWO WEEKS!! Eek!! Hopefully by the weekend, I am guessing...
GAH these do seem to be slow in validating don't they? Ah, well, if it hasn't been that long, then I guess I can wait...*falls off chair in anticipation* DRAT I seem to do that a lot don't I?
Author's Response: *Hands RonIsMyHomeboy a helmet and elbow pads* Be careful! I don\'t want any of my readers injured due to my story. But yes, I agree with you.... :-)
OH. MY. GOSH. You are an AWESOME writer!!! Now I am hanging on the edge of my seat, waiting for the next chapter to come out! *Taps screen* Please hurry up, mod!
Author's Response: Oh thanks much!! I think the next chappie is posted...and BOY is it a cliffie!! :-)
GAH!!! You're right!!! A HUGE cliffie!!!!! Now I am falling out of my seat, 'cuz I was hanging so far forward. I hope it doesn't take too long to update...*chews fingernails anxiously*
Author's Response: Hey there - yeah, I am working on Chapter 29 now ~ but bad news: it follows Ron and Harry, not Hermione!
Ooooooohhh, and the plot thickens. Will our heros catch Mundungus before it's too late? Is Hermione even right? Tune in next week to read the latest installment of The Time Is Now! Ha ha. Lovely lovely, this just gets better and better!
Author's Response: Dun dun DDDDUUUUNNN!! Hehehehe. Thanks Ron is My HB. It\'s pretty fun writing this little action/adventure/romance story and I love getting feedback from my steady readers. ~ Your Author
Oh, so THAT's why it's taking so long. Ouch, that must have been surprising to hear it got rejected. But that means that the mods think it is good and can be better! Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight????
Author's Response: I GUESS so. ahahhaha. I think maybe, they\'re cracking down a bit on the quality of the writing on MNFF. I am not saying ANYONE\'s perfect, but I did minor in English in college and I write quite a bit at my job. Sssssooo, I WAS kinda surprise to get REJECTED! Aaah, guess it\'s good to get a dose of humility now and then...plus, Chapter 31 is gonna be a good one...
Oooohhh...maybe I'll understand the dream more now. :) Is the "Golden Snitch" a figure of speech for a thought that is buzzing around your head and you can't seem to grasp it? If so, it's pretty clever!
Author's Response: YAY! So glad to see that not everyone has given up on your ol\' author here. I am super sorry for the delay between the last two chappies. I have been crazy busy, but I promise that the chapters will come more regularly now!
Ah-mazing chapter!! I was sooo excited when I saw the email in my inbox, I was like "YESSSSSS!!!!! The fluffy, non-action chapter has been validated!!! Whoooooooooooooo!!!!!!" Ha ha...Oh, if you see any mistakes in this review, it's because I'm downing popcorn as I type this, and my fingers aren't really responding to type this because they want more popcorn. It's funny because when Ron was going to tell Hermione he loved her, I thought he was just going to say it, but as I read his stuttering, I realized it's more Ron-ish to make him uncomfortable. Way to go! *high fives*
Author's Response: Yay!! Glad you enjoyed - I also love when readers get the same interpretation of the characters that I have - I mean, look, Ron\'s a bit more secure in Hermione\'s feelings for him, but he\'s STILL a) 17 yrs old b) a bit of git, heehee and c) well, Ron Weasely! :-)
Oh my gosh...I know I probably sound like a broken record by now, but I absolutely positively loooooved this chapter!! I really liked that you incorporated Neville into the story...you just gotta love him! I also really liked the whole werewolf thing and how Lupin almost couldn't change back. I would have reviewed a LOT sooner, but I was away on a mission trip, then my computer didn't work, then I went camping! So here is my extremely late review! :)
Author's Response: oh, hey thanks!! Listen, I understand about being busy - I think that my readers are going to revolt soon if I don\'t update, but between work, singing (yes, I sing!), going to the beach, etc., I have had NO time!! But soon, I promise, soon!
Wow, that was great!!! That was cool, the way Harry looked like a werewolf, and the way Tonks woke up? Hilarious!! I was almost laughing out loud! Oh pleeeeeeeeeeeease update soon, I want to see if Ron and Hermione get reunited!! *Covers heart with hands and sighs dreamily, staring into space*
Author's Response: Hey thanks so much - I am going to TRY to submit a new chapter today - otherwise you lovely readers will have to wait a week and half! I am gettin\' on a plane to a much-needed vaycay tonight...
Ooohh! I was reading some of the other reviews, happy almost birthday! *Throws confetti*
Author's Response: Awwwwwee!! Thanks SO much! Yeah, we Leos like our birthdays a lot...
I agree with the last two reviews, you should definitely keep writing!!!!!! I absolutely love this story, it feels like the real thing, and even though I'm also a canon kind of person, your story technically wouldn't be non-canon cause you started it before DH came out. So please please hurry up and keep writing cause there's only 5 days left!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D
