Another two amazing chapters! I feel bad that I always seem to miss an update so end up reviewing 2 chapters in one. Anyways! I'm so thrilled that everything is back on track with Harry and Ginny. The Christmas part of this was wonderful, a proper Weasley Christmas (I loved the part about Teddy's Christmas present!) The ministry party sounded amazing too.
I'm sad to see that there are problems arising for Ron and Hermione but as with Harry and Ginny I appreciate that relationships aren't all hearts and flowers, they have to be worked at, and the arguing is one of the reasons we all love Ron and Hermione isn't it? The dramione shipper in me is thrilled that they're friends now but I know they'd never go down that route in your story-I'm looking forward to finding out who the woman he likes is and who she was at the party with!
I can't see why you're not happy with this chapter, I thought it was superb! Especially Ron and Hermione's making up after the fight. What I loved most was the Percy and Ginny interaction, often in fanfiction (I know I'm guilty of this) the fact that Percy left is skipped over so I think it's brilliant that you addressed it and I felt so sorry for Percy when he said it should have been him not Fred, though I found it really believable. You have such a talent for keeping the characters so perfect and true to the way JKR made them, I'm so envious!!
Anyways, I'm rambling. Super two chapters. I did notice a tiny typo, exited should be excited but other than that: flawless!
Looking forward to the next :)
Author's Response: You never fail to make my day with your awesome reviews! I am so happy that you liked both chapters, and the whole Christmas/New year thing.. every time I imagine Christmas with the Weasleys, I really just want to be there with them... ;)
I just can't see Ron and Hermione in a relationship without fighting. But of course, it's always sad when they start to doubt each other, etc... :)
I'm so happy that you did like the chapter, it's very reassuring! I think it's quite common that people forget Percy all around in fanfiction, which is kind of sad because he is, in my opinion, an amazing character! He might not always be very likable, but he's a great character nonetheless. I am so happy that you found his thoughts and feelings believable. Honestly, I really think I would have felt that way if I had been Percy, which is how I came up with it. Oh, and that's probably the nicest thing you could have said, that there characters are true to how JKR made them.. thank you so much! You have no idea how happy that comment made me!
I'm definitely going to change that typo, thank you so much for pointing it out. And again, thank you so, so much for this review. Really, you are an amazing reader and I always get excited when I see a new review from you :) and you said once that you found it amazing that I loved your writing because you really like this story.. honestly, I feel like it's the other way around! I am so flattered that you like this, because I think you are so incredibly talented!!
