That was so cute. What a lovely tradition. You know I thought of giving someone I care about socks for Christmas, but then thought she would think it inappropriate. After this story, next time I'll think twice.
Author's Response: Thank you very much! :-) Good luck with your real life sock story. ;-)
Ok. You did it. You hit a sentimental old fool with a really tear jerker, and it work. Wonderful story. Thank you and your betas.
Author's Response: Woot! *throws hands up jubilantly* I\'m glad that you liked it and I could touch emotional cords. Sadly, I didn\'t work with a Beta here, but I hope to get someone to go over my chapters for the next one. Thanks for reading! Narwen3
I just read the first six chapters and think they are great. You show real talent. I find the idea of the castle neat. It could very easliy start a whole new series.
Author's Response: Yes, I thought of that. I would like it if you would take a look at my other fic here which is "Life Goes On". It takes place after they all leave Hogwarts. Youmight like it if you like the idea of the castle here. thanks for reading and reviewing. It's always good to hear what you all think.
This is a great story. I like it. You follow all of the story lines and because you didn't add anything silly or way out of the ordinary, I could see it clearly in my mind. You make it real. Keep going.
Author's Response: Thank you! I will!
This is my first reading, and I am enjoying the storyline. I like the treet touch, very classy.
Great story. Devious aren’t you. How did you ever think up a game like this? Touch of a Matchmaker are you huh? OK hurry up now with the next chapters.
I enjoyed the story, but I think you need to build on it. It looks like the beginnings of a good long story with lots to keep a reader interested.
This is a good story. Nice touch with the background history. The topic is great too. Old magic hmmm. What other old magic will come out? I still haven’t figured out why Sirius had the secret hideaway. Only the Shadow knows.
Author's Response: Thank you! I had a tough time with that background. I'm glad to hear you thought it fit, too. Can't help you with Sirius, though. :)
Great start. Looks like the begining is off to the right foot.
I like it, keep going.
Author's Response: Thanks so much!!!
Greta dear, you must finish this story. I know I'm not one to talk, since I haven't finished mine, but this is a great story that must be told. It feels so real, so right. Please continue soon.
Too cute. When is the next chapter? Can't wait.
This is a beautiful story with some great ideas. Your plan with the songs bits works well in separating the time and locations. Although I feel like we are missing something. I am surprised that it was not Ron who kept pushing for more practice. I have always seen Harry more aggressive and determined when he wants something. You use the word “said” more than enough. To make the conversation flow, drop the “he said”, “Harry Said”…. When you separate the stanzas it already gives the impression of two people talking. If you feel the need to show exactly who is talking, have them doing something, like play with a button on there blouse,, or drinking from a cup. Keep up the writing, you have a great imagination and keep the story flowing. I have added you to may favorites and hope to read more of you works.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Chapter 3 has a bit of a better flow as far as the dialouge is concerned, I realized that it wasn't quite up to par. I only have two more chapters to go after 3 is posted, so it won't be long now... Thanks again, I hope you like the third chapter!
That was just too cute. Love it. I can't type and laugh at the same time. he he eh
Author's Response: LOL - thanks! Multitasking can be hard... :)
great story you have going. On another note, your fans really should get together more often. Such close freinds are a blessing. Wish you all well in school.
I just reread the enitre storiy and find that I must have been born a dunce. You told us about the palace and Ginny trip there. Why I didn't piece that together.... Great story, glad your back, put the home buying goes well.
Author's Response: BRILLIANT!!!!!!! ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT!!!!! WELL DONE! I doubt anyone is going to look this far back in the reviews to see your complete genius, but kudos to you for catching on to the early clues that I laid out. The smart people should be asking what happened at the Palace???
Funny, but he had never thought of using the Invisibility Cloak in his schemes to woo Ginny.
That was a very lovely story. I enjoyed your style of writing. It shows a lot of feeling without making it too wordy.
Author's Response: Thank you for your kind words!
5000 reads for this little two-chapter story of mine! Merci! Danke! Thanks!
Oh, I am going to enjoy this. I can tell. does he or doesn't he .. get thumped or stumped in the end. I won't make it a double wedding, but if Iwere him, I won't walk away. When you find your special someone, you really never can walk a away. Please continue
Author's Response: So, did you enjoy the second chapter?
You have to do a series of sequels for this. this was great. You are a really talented writer. I have been torn with does Ginny say the heck with it and go with him and he he gives in or if she stays back and waits for him. Both are so romantic and both have strong merit.
This is a wonderful story. To see things from this side of the coin is interesting and facinating. Your style speaks volumns. Many will say that it doesn't sound like Ginny, but then if we really look at ourselves, do we appear as others see us or do we too wear our thoughts in a pocket and only let other see us they way we want? Yes, I think you have captured the Ginny from the inside and shown what she portrays on the out. Very good story.
Author's Response: LittleTom45, you have made my November! I have this fear that nobody really understands the story, but I know I'm wrong, because I'm no Emily Bronte or anything...digression. Thank you for pinpointing exactly what I'm doing with the narrative, it's like the huge chocolate sundae I shouldn't be eating, thank you for the indulgence.
