It's GREAT!! I'm reading this ... in spite of the fact that I'm still mourning for Dumbledore ... *sniff*
Author's Response: Well thank you! And I know...I miss Dumbledore already in J.K.'s next book!
An excellent chapter and WOW! I was giggling at the thought of Fred and George having a Library ... Hmmm ... if there are any books about Horcruxes in there, I'd bet some of them would be from Knocturn Alley. But ... Dark times around ... anyway, I wouldn't put it past the twins. HA! But I'm aware that it's your FF, Malloree. 10/10 (as always)
I'm getting worried now ... have you tried to contact the mods?
Great chapter! Reviewing once more just to keep your morale up!
I DON'T abandon fics!
Author's Response: Lol. Thanks. It's great when people review, it lets me know what people think about my story! But reviewing it twice...wow. Haha. Hope you enjoy the next chapter, its a little slower, but I like the end of it. It's in the queue right now - Thanks to the Mods for getting that back up!
Ahhh ... I see you're becoming JKR-ish. Bumping goodguys off ... strangely, I'm not feeling sorry for Dung. Great Chapter!! 10/10.
Author's Response: Hehe...I had to. There had to be something exciting going on, and I couldn't do it to Lupin or Tonks at this point. Thanks for the compliments, I really appreciate your input!
10/10. A well-written chapter, Malloree. I think, now, a month later, I've gotten over the shock of DD dying. If I am right ... Harry will get Fawkes? :-)
Author's Response: Hmm...:P...you'll just have to wait and see, huh? :) Lots of things happen before Harry leaves Number Four.
Guess who screamed ... it's Petunia obviously.
Please update soon ... or is the queue on hold again?
OMG, this is extremely funny!
The drunkenness (is that a word?), the disastrous date, and the endless sneezing! Oh dear, Pince had better watch out for the prowling duo ... next time (if there will be a next time, that is).
Author's Response: I love that just when things were about to get disgusting, the carpet is pulled out from the reader\'s feet and it all falls to pieces. One of my favorites, even if I\'m slightly prejudiced.
Great chapters ... AWESOME STORY ... and superfast updates! I'm loving it!! :)
Dursleys ... want to know what's up with Harry!? Hehe you're keeping me surprised ... Can't wait to know what's in the letter that DD gave him.
Cliffy all over again, but it's yet another GREAT chapter!! Post next chapter ASAP.
Awesome ... but why this cliffy? And hey, how did Harry become Secret Keeper of Godric's Hollow when Dumbledore wasn't the Secret Keeper in the first place?
Can hardly wait for the next update!
Author's Response: Dumbledore has his ways...
Please post next chapter soooooooon!
Author's Response: I am very sorry the wait is becoming longer and longer with each chapter, but many things are going on for me at the moment. I've found out I'm moving this summer from the one home I've ever known, and school is really getting to me. Please, do be patient with me. I am working on the next chapter of this story, making it the best it can be. I'm sure you, Dumbledore Prince, and the rest of my readers would settle for nothing less than my best. Right? So it's taking awhile. And then, I have an unbelieveable pile of homework this weekend that hasn't been touched--I will put it before my fan fiction, for nothing comes before my schoolwork. Good things take time, so hopefully you'll find the next chapter good. Sincerely, Christine
Great chapter! Oh dear - Harry, Ron and Hermione are in a vampire colony ... they're harmless, though! Scrimgeour really is a part-vampire, then ... *rolls eyes*
The plot thickens as it progresses. You've done a very good job of sticking to canon while introducing ideas of our own. "Dora" was amusing :)
If you don't mind (and if you have time), can you read and review my fics?
Author's Response: Yes, definitely. I will read and review your fics. I\'ve been meaning to, it\'s just that I\'m so busy with packing up everything (I\'m moving in less than two weeks). Thank you for your compliment, and thank you for recommending In Nomine Amoris on the MNFF Forums! - Christine
AWESOME CHAPTER! I think one reviewer was right about the S. One question to ask you ...
Was Dumbledore the heir of Gryffindor? :))
Author's Response: No, he was not. Sorry.
I hope the next chapter isn't stuck in the queue ... :(
Author's Response: I'm very sorry to inform you that the progress of the next chapter is at the early stages. I'm on holiday for Thanksgiving right now, and I'm not so close to any computers, as I'm with some family in the hill country of central Texas. So, in short, I will not be able to write/post the next part of "Godric's Hollow" until I get back--I can't even check my e-mail here! I'm very busy right now, for my family and I are using this vacation to set up a few things for when we move here this summer. Yes, my moving will probably mean updates being farther between. To answer your unasked question, the next chapter isn't in the queue at all. There's an entry to the Winter Snows challenge in the queue at the moment, so until the mods filter out the challenge entries, I can't post anything else. If worse comes to worse, I'll delete my challenge entry from the queue and put the next "In Nomine Amoris" chapter in its stead, and THEN re-enter the challenge entry. If you're interested in my other fan fiction, you can find them by finding "suckr4romance" on fanfiction.net. I have a Ron/Hermione there, which I'm still writing, and a couple pre-HBP fics. I also posted my Winter Snows Challenge entry on there already. Again, I'm very sorry for all the hullabaloo. Just know that I'm trying. Also, I believe I told you and the other reviewers that at least a full two weeks should be expected between each update... Maybe I haven't, but now, I'm telling you: patience is a virtue. Writing is harder than many people think. It's so difficult, because you never know when you'll find your inspiration, and most of the time it comes importunely. Thanks for reviewing. Love, Christine
When I first glanced at the chapter title, I was surprised, because "Gryfffindor Women" sounds too casual for a serious fic, and I thought, 'This chapter might be a funny one.'
I was sort of right. This is an amusing chapter , albeit in a subtle way. I don't mind the relative lack of plot development at all. Hermione's emotions are profound; they're amusing and moving at the same time. Okay, I know I'm not making much sense ...
“You’re obviously deranged, if you thought I couldn’t hear you! Emotional Hermione–whatever will we do with HER? She’s too fragile to bring on these outings, isn’t she? You should just leave her at home all day. Forget her stress and suffering, though, because we can’t bloody DEAL with that kind of drama…” Hermione continued with her ranting and raving for several more minutes, until finally held his hands out in a surrendering fashion.
I have this weird habit of chuckling whenever there's an argument betweeen Ron and Hermione, whether it's in the books, movies or fanfics. That's the reason I found this quote amusing. It also shows her emotional side, thus giving her character an impressive depth.
You've probably gotten bored of my endless praise about everyone being in-character, but I can't help myself. I rarely manage to find fics with which I'm totally and completely impressed.
I love the Ron/Hermione and Harry/Ginny parts! In the interaction between Harry and Ginny, my favourite dialogue is ...
“You’re not going to Obliviate me,” Ginny laughed slightly through her tears.
Of course not! In fact, I don't think Harry can raise his wand on her with the intention to harm her.
She smiled at him without her teeth. “I am glad to see you, you know. Finally.”
“Yes,” Harry agreed, moving in to hug her more closely, “finally.”
Nothing like a cute ending to give that content, warm and fuzzy feeling inside. Nice work!
I have some constructive criticism to give that has nothing to do with the story itself. I don't think there's any need to apologise for a short chapter in the A/N. After all, quality matters more than quantity.
Good luck with the rest of the story!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! And you\'re totally right; I shouldn\'t have to apologize, or explain myself, really, since it wasn\'t as long a wait for a chapter as usual (which can be pretty darn long!). Great to hear from you, Mini; thanks for your stellar review! --Christine
Great to know that Percy has finally realised his folly. Awesome chapter!
Why don't you respond to reviews?
Author's Response: I am VERY sorry I haven't responded to any reviews. I just felt that my updates were self-explanatory most of the time, so I didn't. Thank you so much for reviewing, and for pointing this out, Dumbledore Prince. Percy realizing his folly was one of my favorite parts to write, so I am glad you enjoyed it!
