On all other sites (livejournal, fanfiction.net) my penname is monroeslittle :)
1983. In a world where Voldemort has won the First War, where hope has fled from an Earth moaning under the Dark Lord's iron hand, marriages are broken and others are arranged in order to preserve the sacred purity of blood. James Potter loses his wife; now they have to find another for him.
I was bored out of my mind on a Sunday night and I came across your story again. Though I've read it before, I found myself immersed in it and read it through a second time. You really have created a wonderful character in your Marie-Antoinette, you deserved to win the award, not just runner-up. I like the scenes from other characters POV, they give the story a little more depth. Really, I can't say anything but good of the fic. Naturally, I'm dying to find out what happens next -- but I can totally understand being busy with, you know, the REAL world! I look forward to when you do finally update, in the distant future. Again, a wonderful fic, one of my favorites!
Author's Response: Thanks a lot! I\'ve heard the fic came close to winning the award, but since (among other reasons) it was on hold, another story rightly won it. I\'ll try to update asap.
Very exciting! You sure have a lot of good ideas concerning the Horcruxes and I can't wait to find out what else you come up with.
Author's Response: I\'m glad to know you approve. Hopefully the story will continue to be just as exciting. Thanks for the review! :-)
Please update soon, this story has quickly become one of my favorite fics!
Author's Response: Yay! I just sent in another update, so I hope you\'ll get to read more very soon. I\'m honored to be one of your favorites.
I'm like this 'plan' concerning Ginny! The memories of Harry's parents are all very sweet and he definitely deserves them. This has to be one of my favorite chapters so far, I really loved it. I can't wait to read more; keep up the good writing.
Author's Response: I\'m glad you like the idea of Harry\'s secret plan. You\'ll see what it is soon enough.... Thank you very much for the kind review.
I agree that it would never happen in the books, but I LOVED IT! It was wonderful to see some romance and I enjoyed every word of it. I look forward to reading more.
Author's Response: Thanks. This is one of those times when I had to hope my readers would suspend their disbelief just a bit. I\'m glad you liked it.
Somehow I missed the e-mail saying Chapter 26 had been posted, so this time around I got to read two chapters --two very well written chapters! I love how even though the plots of the chapters aren't revolving around romance, they're still thick with wonderful Harry/Ginny love. You really do a good job with them, their shower talk was so cute!
I can't wait to read more about the Order of the Phoenix's raid, the Black Magic Club and Harry and Ginny's secret romance! Keep up the good job and super fast updates!
Author's Response: Thank you! When I started writing this story, I didn\'t even know there were stories that just revolved around romance. If I had known, I might have been tempted to put this in the General category. But I really think this is where it belongs, because H/G is central to the plot. Especially the twist ending. ;-)
I\'m glad you enjoyed the chapter(s), and I hope you\'re not too disappointed that the raid isn\'t going to happen immediately. It will happen soon enough, though.
You really know how to write Ginny! This chapter was excellent, as is usual. I had actually been checking my favorites nearly every day in hopes it would be updated - it was worth the wait - the very, very small wait. I love how quickly you update, it's wonderful! I can't seem to find anything to critique, so I'll simply say I can't wait for an update!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I\'m glad you found my portrayal of Ginny believable. I really try to update as often as humanly possible, and it\'s good to hear that you appreciate the effort.
Ooh, wonderful, wonderful, wonderful! I loved every part of it, I don't even know where to start! The whole idea was very well thought out. I wasn't sure how you had planned on doing the whole wedding but you definitely made it believable and it's my favorite chapter so far.
I like how you had Harry and Ginny dressed up as James and Lily Potter, that was a sweet touch. The idea with Hermione and Ron thinking they're a couple is absolutely brilliant! The ending is extremely sweet; wow, I can't seem to say enough good of it! You write very well and this chapter certainly says as much. I can't wait to read more!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I really worked hard on this chapter, especially since it\'s one of the most important ones to get right, so I\'m glad to see it paid off.
Another well written chapter. I'm really enjoying this story, I can't wait to read more! Ginny and Harry will get back together, right . . . ?
Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked it, and I hope you keep coming back for more. As far as whether or not they\'ll get back together... this story IS in the Harry/Ginny category, is it not?
I'm glad Ginny is in on everything. This was another wondeful chapter, I can't wait to read more!
Author's Response: Thanks! I went round and round about how to let her in on things. As of right now, though, she\'s only in on the magical myth thing; she still doesn\'t know about the Horcruxes or the prophecy. Will she find out? Only time will tell!
Excellent, as usual. I can't wait to read more!
Author's Response: Thanks! I\'m hoping to post another update soon; I just need to proofread one last time.
It was interesting! I was a little freaked out by how he was acting however. I'm excited to read more.
Author's Response: I\'m glad Jared\'s behavior freaked you out (that was the idea). On the one hand you can\'t blame him, but on the other he did seem a little out of control. For the record, it freaked Harry and me out a little too.
Wow, that has to be one of my favorite chapters so far! The Ginny/Harry romance was wonderful of course, and Harry pretending to be Pierre was extremely fun. Excellent job, I can't wait to read more!
Author's Response: Thanks very much. I had a lot of fun with it, even if the accent was a lot harder than I expected.
Very sad. I get exactly how Willard fits into P&P, but who is Emily supposed to be? Another good chapter, I can't wait to read more.
Author's Response: Emily is supposed to be Lydia, but with my own twist.
I can't wait to read more, keep up the good work!
April showers bring May...hassles? Bridesmaid blues and big trouble from small favours complicate Tonks' life when all she wants is to bring her love for Remus into full bloom.
As excellent as always.
Author's Response: Thank you very, very, very much! :)
Another wonderful chapter.
Author's Response: Thank you! I put the next one into the queue, so hopefully you\'ll get to see how the date goes, soon! ^_^
I feel so bad for Tonks and so angry at Evan! Of course Remus makes up for what a terrible guy Evan is. Another wonderful chapter, I look forward to more.
Author's Response: Thank you! Tonks needs to work her fears out so she can be with Remus without reservations. Times will be dark enough next fic without emotional baggage!
I just really wanted to tell you that I love your stories about Remus and Tonks, and you're a great writer!!
Author's Response: Thank you for loving my stories! You\'re a great encourager, and I appreciate it very much! : )
Another excellant chapter, I LOVE this story and can't wait for another update!!
