*deletes old about me and bounces in* Hi folks! We're going to do two reps of squats, move onto the bench press, run on over the small step ladders for a minimum of 30 seconds to get those buttocks scrunching, and then we're going to collapse into a desk chair and read!

That's it! One! Two! Three - four! Reeelaaaaaaaxxx!

Vhe are - Dawnie & Steph Aspiring Spice Girls, Princess & Queen of the Typos, Two Top Investigators (and, quite obviously) Skinny pigs and Photobuckeneers.

Oh yeah.

Oh wowee. That was a nice little dumplin of b.s! Or like, interpretive dance in the form of words on a computer screen being blasted across all of the world to make some crazy dog lady drinking tea smile. Or, someone wearing very sexy cowboy boots in a very Salty Lake city grin. Or, it may even be possibly that someone in a very Ily-nnoying state of mind may be reading this. In which case, if you've recovered from the little workout earlier, you'd know I ♥ my sport, particularly the one I'm coordinated at, LJ & PV. Because the others are fun mostly for the laughs I get directed at me when I fall on my sweet little toushe. Although they may not be laughing with me. Hmm.

I'm a Turnip. I atually cooked some the other day, and heard their little plot-bunnies goig up in smoke with a guilty little voice wailing in my mind *cough* But I adore my SPEWlings more than anything, and I love the PIBETA gang more than they know. ♥

exellent!!! Best chapter yet i rekon, but if it was longer you probably would have told us about M.W. Is the curse the same as Snivellus used on James in 'Snapes Worst Memory' and on Hermione in The Department Of Mysteries? Funny how these thingys connect aye?

I've really looked forward to this chapter! I usually check every day, but my computers had some bugs =( I hope it doesnt do it again coz i really love reading your FF!! I think the animals you chose were appropriate, but yeah for names like that SSmg or watever it is said whats 'Roe' mean? For Hermy....hhmmmm...maybe a scrambled version of a nickname or real name like I AM LORD VOLDERMORT (Tom Marvolo Riddle) Coz like in this other story it said she got ful owl... just like Ol' Voldie. Maybe they're some likeness?

Well done Weasley Mom! I am detirmined to make this my longest review ever..

okay i thought it was absolutly halarious when Harry gave Remus the impresion he wanted 'the talk' lol you can just imagine Remus looking around shepishly then going "ahem... well... erm the birds and the bees, Harry... we should probably sit down.." lol just my view. You can imagine Sirius boasting about all his shags...."Oh yeah, and then there was the one in 6th year where we got busted by McGonagall in the broom closet...that was good..." he said with a wistful look in his eye. "Yeah,. those were the days..." lol sorry got carried away..

I've never really thought of Tonks as an Auror in a story before... she's always seemed so new word. Apparently im 'flippant when it comes to concentrating at training' :S yesmm....but yeah. When Tonks took on sucha serious tone i was like "wow! That's right! She's an Auror!" ahh... i can't wait for their wedding! Wonder what colour hair Tonks will have? Knowing her.... purple to go with some violets??? even tho violets are kinda blue ::scratches head::

Yay! I think this is deffinetely my longest review! I just hope when you finish the last two chapters you'll ask us questions. I love answering questions in reviews... makes me think for once...not that i don't always think.. being a year 9 student...thats reminds me; i go back to school on the monday afetr HBP! I should be finshed by then! I hate being in Australia some times...BTW i think ur Canadian or from America, coz Brits and Aussie spell 'mum' with a U and you spell it with an 'O' just a lil tidbit sorry... I'm straying from the path =-)

I've been following this story from the start, tho *sorry* not reviewing coz I haven't had an account that long, but this was the first story i EVER read ::honest:: and i love it to bits! It's a shame to see it finshing, but at least this way we can always go back and nit pick obsessivley without having to wonder stupidly if our questions will be answered in the next chapter ::grins sheepsihly:: i know from experience =-D

well, its time for me to stop rambling, hope you start a seventh year Fanfic once HBp reveals the new plot line, and I look forward to reading it, as i expect, Will does! Lucky boy! ~Steph* ::20 as always, but if i had my way, 100000... you get the picture:: 62 lines!

I agree with Lisa K and Nadia ( the most recent review before mine. JK does refer to Ginny as a cat alot? Maybe a nice Giger Kneazle (Fantastic Beasts -- Crookshanks is most probably one, maybe Ginny could have some kinda connection?) She could have her new scar as a sumbol like McGonnagall's glasses.... As for Ron the idea of Birds is coming up alot, Maybe a Pheonix, with all that red hair he's sure to fit the part :) maybe a roan unicorn (totally random I know) because his wand has unicorn hair in it, but if he was a pheonix maybe they could fashion their own wands with his feathers for a stronger connection. like a junior branch of the Order. I have almost no ideas for Hermione, except the little bit of info that Otters are oart of the WEASEL family. Maybe if Ron & Hermione's romance became stronger she may one day become a Weasley (I know big step 4 her) but that could prove a strong connection. Also maybe Neviile could be a 5th Marauder? Time's have changed and he's really closely linked to Harry with the prphecy and all, maybe a toad like Trevor or a Hawk? They're really wise & detirmined, like he is to avenge his parents. I can tell I've tired you out with all my thinking, so ttyl all...

I like the way Tonks percieved fear of predictability ( i know, big word for a 13 yr old :) )but yeah, well done. I think her little talk has scared them into thinking they can't trust strangers, no matter of the saying (a strangers just a friend you haven't met)

Aww! Sirius is back! I love when people put Sirius back into their stories; i would just like to add that chapter with Andromeda and Ted was fabulous. I'd just like to say (sorry for nit-picking) but you spelt maliciously wrong =-) I should know, i only spent about five minuted trying to find out the right spelling for my story (Malicious Intentions, General Fics, could you please take a look? It would be such an honour =-)) but other than that, I am so sad to hear that this story is almost finished. I almost cried when Colin died, and i just hope he doesn't die is HP1/2BP!!! Loves it!

Date: 09/06/05 Title: Chapter 47: On a Burning Day

WOOT! First reviewer! Of course we'd never leave you Weasley Mom! Even if this story had Hermione in bloody Sparklypoof or whatever twas we'd always keep reading this story! I was wondering, since you've done such a fabulous job aftre this one whether yo were considering doing a seventh-year fiction? Your fiction would be the first one people would look to for an accurate portrayal of JKR's myusterious book seven. Perhaps you should name it Harry Potter and the Mystic Candle of Nackledirk? Well Done, I look forward to those next couple of chapters, and of course, Tonk's n Remus' wedding! ~Steph*

Author's Response: I am planning on writing a sequel to this in which I'm going to attempt to incorporate certain aspects of HBP (horcrux anyone?) I also have a Marauders fic told from Sirius' POV in the works and am considering doing something based off this story with Remus and Tonks.

I bet now that everybody's been saying he's going to buy a ring WeasleyMom will probably change her mind and go in a totally different direction! Hmm...Mrs. Nymphadora Lupin...strange combination, don't you think? Maybe it's a lingerie (underwear) store and Remus is looking for something that will fit Tonks REALLY 10/10

Date: 05/22/05 Title: Chapter 41: Fear of a Name

Sorry! New subject! In agreement with Vthat person below my first posting, i doubt it very much if any one who is serious about writing Fanfiction hasn't read your story. This is fabulous, and everyone knows what a lot of gossips we all r!

Author's Response: Awww... thanks. I'm glad everyone is enjoying it. There are alot of great stories on here which I have a great time reading as well.

Wow! Thanks for replying to my review! Make a girl feel loved, you know? I forgot some errors I found. Well, not the plural, but just 'death eaters' has a Capital and a hyphen (tis how you spell it?) I think the Horcrux idea sounds great however, and heres my theory. Slytherin= greed= expensive locket. Gryffindor= bravery= sword. Hufflepuff=fair=fairly won cup. Ravenclaw=cunning, smart, logical... get the pattern? LOL maybe a quill or soemthing. Well, at least we all know how to get rid of a dirrty great snake! ~Steph* (a faithful reviewer)

Deonica, This story ahs not been updated since the 11th of April last year. Pleas,e if this story is discontinued, please tell us. I'm only wondering if you're still in contact with the MNFF world, becasue your story survived the clean. Did you come up wiht a valid reason? Is there another site we can turn to to read soem more of this fiction? Why is it you won't update? Mods? Sorry to fire questionbs, but I read this story as i said, more than a year ago, before i was even a member. It's sad I won't be able to finish it.

Please, Demonica, Tell us whats happening. Quote: Author's Response: Not related to Harry. That would make chapter after next just wrong. By the way, the next chapter has been submitted, so it just has to be accepted. Sorry for the wait. How much longer is this wait going to be? It hasn't been updated since god knows when, and everyone's getting desperate! People love Medea, and we want to found out just whats so wrong about Harry and Medea being related! Please, answer this.

Very cool as always.... hhhmmm... i think i like the longer chapters because when it's short you feel robbed, becuase you know the stoopid mods are making you wait longer than you have to ( with the exception of Danielle) umm... i think longer chapters give you all the info you need and with all that info, you can make ur own theories! Good luck with the next chapter

I thought it was beautifully written, no mistakes that I can detect!

I was just scrolling through the titles, and thought your description sounded intruiging, so very good opening summary!

I would just like to ask, are you going to a follow up? I would certainly be looking out for it!
