eSilver haired (blond turned to grey actually) 60+ year old sad old man who loves HP Fanfics. Now very close to 70...
Now over 70 so still keen.
I do not know if anybody reads reviews on 2 year old stories. I have read all Ancientgirls stuff and her Osiris and Crookshanks are my favourite chacters. Long may they cause trouble!
Author's Response: They read them if they still get alerts. Thank you for taking the time to review this. I\'m happy that you enjoyed Osiris and Crookshanks. I haven\'t revisted them in a long time. I really don\'t post on here anymore though. I think The Severus Doll was the last story I posted here. I post mainly on The Petulant Poetess. If you are a big fan of fanfiction you should try that site. There are a lot of wonderful authors there.
I last read this story when it was stalled at chapter 35. I just checked up on a whim and find you are writing again. Wonderful. Keep up the good work.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review - it's very encouraging that someone is still reading after such a long gap. I'm quite determined to finish this story - the end is so long overdue.
Ron going off by himself sounds like a bad idea. But who knows till the next chapters what will happen. Hanging off every word.
How it will all turn out is up to the author. What I do know is the quality of the writing is excellent.
Hello world! What terrible things have happened to make you stop updating this story???? Give us a clue..
Good update. Thanks for the excellent read.
Why is this story dead? It and its predecessor where brilliant and I have waited ages to see if it will ever be updated. I am in deep despair!
That was a totally awe inspiring piece of writing. Action, relationships, plot,happiness, sadness. Brilliant!
Well past its sell by date, bit well done.
I come back to this story every night to see the next chapter, so get on with it before I die of old age! (61 next birthday and a grandfather)
My take on how events may pan out in book seven. Spoilers from all previous HP books.
The events of the previous year have brought home to Harry the realization of what has to be done, and the knowledge that it must be done alone. Now as he sets off on his final quest, making new acquaintances along the way, he must bring all his knowledge and skill to bear in his effort to destroy Lord Voldemort. But will it be enough, or is there something that he has missed which might prove to be his undoing?
This is a really excellent story with a good plot, nail biting development and a minimum of fluff. Cannot wait for the next chapter.
Author's Response: Glad you like it. Hope the rest of the story lives up to your expectations. I should have the next chapter up shortly.
I have followed this story after reading your excellent Stolen Past/Past Reclaimed and you write with a great original story line.
I hope you can now concentrate on `Almost Me Again`, even though I know Harry`s son is going to come round.
Author's Response: Thanks very much. I\'m really glad you\'ve enjoyed my stories.
Brilliant story telling. Fabulous, original characterisations. Good stuff
Author's Response: Cool! Thanks for reading!
I was enjoying this and then it ended in nowhere. I hate stories that do this.
Author's Response: Well, it's not over, hehe. It's still a WIP, I just haven't had time to review. Sorry it threw you off. :-)
Being a sad old cannon H.P. fan, I do not particularly like odd pairings. However, this was a brilliant bit of writting and the ending was glorious.
Author's Response: Aw! I love odd pairings. There's so much potential in a relationship when you accept that very few people get it right the first time (or second, or tenth...) and try to see whether they can make it work or not. Anyway, I'm glad you liked this. I was certain that I wasn't going to like DH's treatment of Severus and tried to dream up an alternate ending for him before it came out. Here it is. Thanks for the review!
Keep it coming!
Author's Response: Will do!
I know it is all going to come out right at the end , but I would still like to read it before my eyesight fails.
Author's Response: Ooooh! I\'m guessing that\'s a subtle hint asking me to update. :-) Honestly, I really want to continue this story, and I will just as soon as I finish the next chapter of my other story. I don\'t have much writing time right now, so I\'m kind of having to switch off back and forth which story I\'m working on. But I will get to it ASAP.
All is not well.
George uses work and Firewhisky to cope with Fred's death until a drink with a friend leads to something that dulls pain better than alcohol. Emotionally torn by grief, he struggles to allow Alicia into his life...and then comes baby....

This is not my usual my HP fanfiction sort of reading, but once I started the first chapter I could not stop. Well written - good story.
I heart you for reading a story that isn't your usual reading!
I have to confess, though, that every time I see your pen name, I have this knee jerk, oh-my-heck-it's-DAD! reaction and have to remind myself (in Bill Murray from Groundhog Day fashion) that you're a dad, not the dad, LOL.
Ths is a good story. Waiting too long for updates is worse than undergoing the crutiatus curse!!
Are you a death-eater?
Author's Response: ::Pulls down the sleeve over his left arm:: Why, no, I'm not a Death Eater. How absurd! Actually, work on this story has been delayed due to the completion and current editing of my recent novel, my strenuous day job, and a family that, for some reasons, wants to see me every so often. However, I have been dabbling with the next chapter a bit and will hopefully not make you wait too much longer before I have something else added to the queue. I'm in between projects right now and hope to use that time to advance the continuing tales of Harry and company a bit further. Thanks for reading and commenting!
I keep coming back to this story but no updates. I assume it is dead, which is a shame but I am going to delete it from my bookmarks. Sad.
Author's Response: No, the story is not dead. It has simply been on hiatus while I deal with such things as my third novel, cancer, and the death of my mother. So please hang around a bit and I'll continue on as soon as I'm able. Feel free to check my LiveJournal (Perpetrating Hooptedoodle) or my Twitter (twitter.com/lee_smiley) for any news on the story. I have been thinking about it a lot lately and, usually, writing follows closely behind such thinking.
