|Review:||Ginger Lust says:|
YAY!!! I got home (from work at 8:30am) and found another chapter. I would normally set it up to read at work tonight but just couldn't wait!!!
YAY!!! Hermione made it back to Ron! I was happy. A great deep breath of relief escaped me. That's all I needed to know. (Although, a kiss would have been nice :-) ) I didn't need to read anymore! ...Still, I was curious so I did finish reading. With bated breath again. Since so many of our favorites had already died, I was afraid that Molly would die also. But YAY!... she didn't. And I see you stuck with her killing the bitch... I mean witch, Bellatrix. (yay)
I know, I know... mustn't let myself get too excited. I'm hoping against hope that Charlie is not dead. But I can see Bellatrix killing him just because! Plus she was probably pretty pissed that the three got away and with Draco's (bless his little heart!) help.. Plus you had her taunt Molly with the death of another of her children but I hope she was just trying to be cruel. I hope :-( Don't tell, I'll wait.
I dread the conclusion of this battle. More beloved characters could parish and I hate that thought. "Specially any more Weasleys... And I'm so scare of what may happen to Ginny, which surprised me that Molly let her go. I guess they needed everyone to be able to have a chance... But, when she sees Harry, floating around like some sort of Hogwarts holiday display or something. That should kill her if not the Death Eaters... And Ron also.
And doesn't Voldemolt realize that he is dying? (Rhetorical question). Surely he doesn't think that losing blood like that is normal. (Rhetorical answer!). I guess he thinks that he is indeed immortal now... since Harry is dead. And he has the Elder Wand. But alas, Voldy doesn't know that the Elder Wand is not actually his. He doesn't know the whole story and that it won't work faithfully for him.
I know I make light of this chapter but I am just so happy that Ron got his Hermione back. Wait until I come down from that high!
Oh, I found that I mistakening reviewed chapter 12 in chapter 11's review spot. I didn't even realize that I didn't review chapter 11. Oh silly moi!!!
I'll still look for next chapter before Xmas, just in case but otherwise... Happy Xmas and Happy New Year. See ya next year!
Author's Response: Aww, I'm quite pleased to hear you were excited enough about this chapter! :D I was very excited to post it, too: It's the first of the two really big culminating chapters of this story. I can't believe we're so close to the end!
Ron and Hermione's reunion is one of my favorite parts of the entire story. ♥ I quite hated keeping them apart like that, and I love Ron/Hermione enough that it sucks writing them separately where they can't be together, you know? And Molly did kill Bellatrix again! Good riddance. :3 Having her do it in canon was such a brilliant move that even here, in a very AU story, I couldn't have had it any other way.
Unfortunately, at this point... well, you said not to tell you, and I won't. But I don't think Bellatrix would be the one to prolong false hope about that; she would enjoy the pain such news would bring. I'll give you no spoilers on the rest of the battle, though! You'll have to see that for yourself after the queue closure. I'm very anxious, of course; it's such a big thing, the end of a story. I want to feel I've done it right, and given it the justice it needs, you know? I'm so nervous. :P I very much hope you enjoy it, and I'm already looking forward to hearing your opinions on it!
Voldemort does not realize he CAN die; arrogance was always his downfall. Which works out very well for our heroes!
Seriously, thank you so much for this review, and for all of your reviews. ♥ It really means more to me than I can say to have such a dedicated following, and it really is people like you who make me want to write more, and to get better at it. I owe it all to my generous and lovely support system! :)
