Due to the hacking experience, and the fact that spyware seems to come with each e-mail from MNFF, I will no longer be posting Prophecy's Child here on MNFF> I have moved over to SIYE. I have posted the first 10 chapters there, re-editing and adding content along the way. If you are interested in still following this story, it can be found at http://www.siye.co.uk/siye/viewstory.php?sid=11975
I'd like to thank all my loyal readers for following along with my story to this point. If you choose not to come to SIYE, I understand. Thank you for letting me attempt to entertain! Until we meet again...
You have a very good beginning here. The only problem I see is that it is a little bit choppy. Definitely a good start to the story though.~~~Kat
Author's Response: Thanks for the suggestion. I'll try improvising.
I love the fact that they both forgot their pact in the aftermath of the battle. I know from the previous story that Molly doesn't know til it actually comes to pass. But does Lily ever find out? Very good start! 10/10~~~Kat
CHAPTER 14 IS UP! CHAPTER 15 IS IN QUEUE!
Excellent!! Got to love Draco drugged. Maybe we should keep him that way? Snape is scathing, as usual. So very fitting....As for the name for the Crup...I found a few different ones...and have their meanings handy.....Theophilus, (nic of Theo> means Beloved by God. Zane, means beloved. Tarak, means protector. Personallt, Theo is my favorite. After all...Pig is a nic for the much longer namd of Pigwidgeon. Fantastic as always, hope I was of some help. Hope I am not too late. LOL~~Kat
Author's Response: Yeah, I wanted to show Draco having a little bit of a lighter side before all of the depression set in. I'll be having him come around before long, Mrs. Weasley is working on gaining his trust. Thanks for all of the crup names. I'm glad you liked what I ended up naming him :)
Well I am glad I was too late with the name suggestions. Padfoot was perfect! And to think, silly me went to babynames.com...lol. I do feel sympathy towards Draco and what he had to see. That would be wnough to drive anyone mad. Grats work! ~~Kat
Author's Response: Thanks Kat! Don't feel silly about the babynames.com thing. I was looking on a Hindu baby name site yesterday for names for the fourth chapter of Baby. Yes, what Draco saw will definitely make for a change in his character in this story. He is going to still have his moments, but nothing like before. All I can say for now, is poor Luna. Thanks again!
Another fantastic chapter! I hope Cindra means freeing Corkey when she said "get rid of"...that makes me a bit nervous. I adore the Charlie/Morgan bit, and hope that the infatuation does not die when she goes back to human again. I also thought it very sweet that Morgan gave 2 of her scales for Ginny and Hermione. Wonderful work all the way around. Oh and definitely hope for Luna to be okay~~Kat
love it love it love it...moving on to next chapter!
Great start to the new story! Sorry it took me so long to get to it. I love Zeppie! And great name for a house elf too. I look forward to reading more!~~Kat
Author's Response: Thanks! No need to apologize, you were down with your back, that's understandable! I'm glad you like Zeppie, I think he will be a lot of fun to write :)
30 July 07: Chapter 15 up and runnin'!! Eventually, 16 forward will post. Thanks you guys - and yay Deathly Hallows! No Spoilers, but definite cannon!!!!!
Even Harry wondered how in the world the obvious loathing Lily felt for James could have turned into a marriage. How could they have loved each other? Well, if this ever bothered or troubled you in the slightest, look no further! 'The Princess and Prat' picks up around the time of the Pensieve Scene in book 5...
Read "The Princess & the Prat" to find out how it all began!!! Also posted on HPFF.com, with over 1110 reviews.
Excellent chapter! You've captured the attraction and fighting it so very well. Gotta love the tension. Adored the way James is steering other guys away, but oh boy is he gonna get it for that comment! Keep up the wonderful work!
Author's Response: He's too cool.
Most excellent! It was hilarity at it's best. That's one way to finally open the doors for romance, just make everyone express exactly what they are thinking. LOVE what you did to Snape, the slimy git.~~Kat
Excellent work! The initials on the whistle were absolotely brilliant. Is Harry ever going to get over the pouting and get on with it?
To my fans I would like to say that I am back to writing, and I have now updated many of the chapters! Some changes are just grammer edits, but there are many adds and changes to chapters. Some based on your reviews or small things I felt needed to be added. Please take a look at the changes and let me know what you think. I am looking forward to hearing what you have to say about the changes and up comeing chapters.
Gotta love the way it is so easy for Dudley to blame something he does not understand for everything that happened. Even for the more basic primal reactions that are brought on by addictions. Very nicely written chapter!
Author's Response: Well I gotta love this review! You are so right and you have hit all the high points of the chapter. You are right in you observations about this chapter. Thanks for the review and for taking the time to edit.
Wonderful chapters, hon. Your ideas never seem to end, which is a good thing. Keep up the fantastic work!~~Kat
Author's Response: Thank you, and you right I am full of... ideas. I will do my best to keep things interesting.
Well written. Although I may have nightmares for a few days of those two old dried up prunes together. As Huskers said, not exactly up my alley, but I have so enjoyed your other story the I had to check it out. hugs~~Kat
Author's Response: Thanks so much for looking into it! Ah, yes, the nightmares that can happen due to reading this. . . Like said, it was an idea I ran with(maybe I shouldn't run with things anymore) ;)
First of all, love the movie quote....that IS one of my favorite flics. You're off to a great start, will keep an eye out for more in the future. ~~Kat
Author's Response: Ever After is one of my fave movies too, and I thought the line would fit perfectly, so I used it. I'm glad you thought it was a good start, you really made me happy. Hopefully soon I'll have a banner that everyone can look at. Again, thanks for your review.
Nice touching moment between Figgy and Harry. Nice characterization of everyone so far~~Kat
Author's Response: YAYYYYY!!!!! I'm sooo glad you liked it, again. I try to get the characters right, so I'm happy you said I did a good job. Thanks for your review.
Another great chapter. I really like the idea of the "postponement" instead of calling it all off. I really hated to see those two split. looking forward to more.~~Kat
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it. Yes, I too like to idea of Harry and Ginny being postponed, and hated to see them split up as well. I'll submit the next chapter, hopefully this weekend.
Yay! Login issues fixed, and I can now review and not have my comeputer freak or the website dismiss it! On to the story, Huskers you are a wonderful writer. You captured the emotions perfectly and actually had me reaching for tissues to get the pesky tears out of the way so I could continue reading the chapter. As I said in my e-mail to you, your other stories were wonderful. Heart-wrenching at times, laughing at others. Keep up the fantastic work.~~Kat
Author's Response: Glad to have you here reading and reviewing. Glad you like the story and that it is making you feel for the characters.
Another excellent chapter, as expected. One has to hurt before they can heal. And healing often comes easiest by looking at life through the eyes of a child. Perhaps Stephanie can help them both.~~Kat
Author's Response: I would say that Stephanie is already helping them both. If that leads to the rekindeling their romance, remains to be seen.
You're off to a great start. That's one of the hardest parts, grabbing the attention of the readers. Keep up the great work!~~Kat
