Aw. I hadnt read this one (actually, there are a few I havent read. Ive been away for a wile n kinda forgot)

ok So I havent had kids.clearly you have thought.

And your story is kinda graphic.

and.. well.

Maybe I never want kids...

Maybe.

Im kinda trying to decide if the love and the baby are worth it. You have made that aspect sound so appealing, and yet the physical side of things sound so...

Argh!
How can you make me think about the meaning of life (etc) with a story about Wizards!

Ahh. to be able to write and to make people stop and think. Yeah, you're good. you are really good. I have (yet again) been guilty of assumptions. Awful Awful assumptions. I assumed that its a story about babies therefore I wont be interested.
And yet somehow, you make the most unappealing topics fascinating, funny, touching heartwarming, real.


Well done.

Author's Response: Hi, there!

Err, yeah, parts of it are definitely a bit graphic. Come on, though. What do you really have without those parts? Another soppy, "greatest moment in our lives, man!" story. Take it from someone who's been there: having a baby isn't that kind of party. Aside from just injecting some realism into this rather overdone trope, I also wanted to show that you *can* write stories that push the envelope on HPFF and do it in a way that gets the point across without breaking the rules. It's not easy, but, hey, challenge accepted!

Please don't let this put you off of having children if you want them. That is the one thing I would feel genuinely bad about. They **are** worth it, trust me. (Says Dad, who was only a bystander for most of this...)

Anyway, I'm glad that the story made such an impact on you. I hope it wasn't overly scarring. ;)

Thanks for reading and reviewing!
