Wahahaha why Reid, why? Is all I can say! It was supposed to be him and Cecilia and then he goes and asks out this Gemma person, I guess Iíll never get my dream of those two being together then, Iíll just have to leave with it :(
I really like how much school related things youíve put into the story, so many people tend to forget to do that, and itís just like itís based in Hogwarts they have to go to lessons at Hogwarts, so Iím really glad that you featured it so much, as it does tend to be missing from a lot of stories.
Arthur and muggles he really does have an obsession over them, doesnít he? Well itís a rather cute obsession so Iím not really complaining!
Another great chapter!Author's Response: Awww Reid and Gemma. Keep reading to see what happens with them!
There's a lot of school in this because they're at school, that's their life at this point. They don't have all the craziness that Harry has at this age. School is the priority.
Arthur does love his Muggles! It's an endearing trait because he really does value them, I think it teaches people to be broad-minded when they interact with him.

Iím really glad that Molly still liked the date, as I was worried that she may be secretly angry about not being able to get in, but she made the best of the situation, and it was still a nice evening. I enjoyed the brief mention of her motherís possible horror though, and she sounds like a character, and I hope we get to see her in the future.
And their declaration of love for one another. Though it was impromptu, and not highly romantic, I still loved it, and it just seemed so much more natural, I especially liked Mollyís initial reaction to it!
Aw and then he thought that she perhaps didnít really love him, and he was all embarrassed and nervous, poor Arthur! Iím so glad that they finally told one another though as it just seemed so obvious to the rest of us.
An awesome chapter!Author's Response: Making the best of the situation was definitely the big reason I wrote the scene that way. They spend most of their married life very poor, and are still happy, so Molly's ability to make the best of things is important. Molly's mom does appear later on. :)
Aww the drunken "I love you"s. That was a fun scene to write. So much fluffy goodness! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Arthur's so sweet.
Thank you so much for the review! Report Review
I thought at the beginning Arthurís thoughts were great. I loved how though he was pleased for his friend, like you expect him to be, he likes that he made a profit out of it as well! And also the banter between him and his friends over Molly was great as well!
I almost thought that when they were walking down the tunnel, that Molly turn back, and you could see how worried and anxious Arthur was getting about that possibly happening. You really felt for him, as you just wanted to tell Molly, so she wouldnít go back, but if she did, then it wouldnít be a surprise, luckily he managed to get her to come!
And it was going all so well, and Molly and Arthur were being all cute and lovey dovey, then Professor Dumbledore appears. I thought it was a great twist, as you think that theyíve finally got there, then something else happens. I thought it was funny that you made him a Celestina Warbeck fan!
I liked the ending, as it was still happy in a way, and there was lots of fluff!Author's Response: The guys' banter was a ton of fun to write. I really like writing friends sort of scenes :)
Arthur was so sure Molly was about to ditch him. She's not good at accepting surprises, is she? Scorpios like to be in control. lol Poor Arthur, the best-laid plans go awry - Dumbledore appears and wrecks the plan. I can totally see him at a Celestina concert. I bet he knows her personally.
Thank you for the review! Report Review
I canít believe that Iíve only just noticed, but Molly and Arthurís thoughts are just so in synch! Itís almost weird at times, but adorable at the same time to, of course! How can anything those two do, not be adorable?
I liked the howler, as itís funny to see that the howler sending runs in the family. I liked how youíve included Fabian and Gideon a lot, as you tend to forget that Molly has siblings, as she never seems to mourn about them. But in this story you have shown that she deeply cares for them, so it would be interesting to see how she reacted to their deaths.
The appratition lesson was funny! I never imagined the boys fighting over who would be the next to apparate, but given the amount of testosterone they have, it seems like the obvious thing they would do!
Thereís still no sign of Cecilia and Reid on the cards then! I hope you havenít just been teasing up about them perhaps getting together, as I really hope they do, as they would be a rather eccentric couple.
Haha the concert! I did wonder why the girls were picking fights, but itís nice to know that they donít hate Molly after all!Author's Response: They are pretty in synch at times. And at others they just don't get each other. I think that happens. Sometimes my husband really gets me, and sometimes he is utterly clueless.
I bet a lot of moms send Howlers. It's definitely attention-getting. Kids don't listen until Mom is losing her head! I'm sure Molly mourned her brothers quite a lot, but by the time the books happen, they've been dead for 15 years or more. That's a long time. She's been able to move through her grief.
Apparition has such potential for comedy, I couldn't resist. And it is sixth year, that's the time for learning to Apparate!

I loved Arthurís thoughts at the beginning of this chapter, as he just seems so much more confident, and it really shows you how love can you change you. I love this new Arthur so much; he just seems like a really nice guy.
Can I just say a quick thank you for making Molly and Arthur so loveable, as they usually donít appear in many peopleís favourite character lists but after reading this, I think they may be featuring on it, as they just so awesome!
I think it was really sweet of Molly to put her schooling first, as I wouldnít have really expected that to come from her, but I guess it shows her genuine their love is for one another, as they both recognise that they canít always be together as otherwise other parts of their lives will suffer as a result of that.
I thought it was really nice of the girls to help Arthur out on Mollyís Christmas present. And it was such a good idea, and so romantic, as itís personalised for Molly, and Arthurís suffering through it just for her!
I found it hilarious that they both love each other, yet they wonít admit to it! I think they both secretly know that the feelings mutual they just donít want to ruin their relationship by saying so.
Another great chapter, and Iím off to the next!Author's Response: Arthur's confidence really grows through being with Molly. He feels a success because he got her, whether anything else happens or not, he feels successful because she loves him. I like that about him. And it's a good foundation for marriage, y'know?
There aren't a lot of Molly/Arthur focused stories set in their school years. The last time I checked, I was still the only one to do an entire finished novel about them. I'm always happy to convert more people to my OTP ;)
The girls like to help Molly be happy, and they know Arthur is making her happy. And Hattie notices things a lot, so she'd know Arthur was a bit clueless about a gift.
Thank you so much for the review! I really enjoyed reading it, it made me smile a lot. Report Review
Hello! I can't believe I didn't read this at all yesterday, I'm surprised I didn't get withdrawal symptons!
I really love the girls interactions with one another, sometimes you just need a bit of girly time, and I thought Siobhan's idea of getting a boyfriend was hilarious!
Yay another appearance of her knitting, it really is awsome and should be valued more!
And another yay more Molly/Arthur fluff, they just seem to be meant for each other, and they're just adorable! Wah I'm in love with these two, as it's so nice to seem them lovey dovey now as they don't always seem like that in the books!
Another awesome chapter!Author's Response: Aww thanks! I'm glad you like it so well!
I love writing the friendship scenes between the Gryffie girls. Well, and the boys too. Siobhan's line about "wear your skirts shorter" made me smile, I'm glad you thought it was funny too!
Knitting it good! Weasley sweaters ahoy!
They are totally meant to be. Made for each other, that's what Molly says in book 6. Love her. Thank you very much! Report Review
I have habit of leaving 3 reviews a day! I would break it, but I seem to do it just before I go to bed, so Iíll stick with it for now!
I loved how confused Molly got about quidditch, donít worry I have the same feeling about football, I mean all those rules, and itís not even interesting! I think itís a girls thing ;)
Poor Molly, Iíve been through that as well, when you think someone hasnít got you something, but theyíve actually got you something awesome, and you just donít know it! I really like how youíve made Molly a really identifiable character, and you can really sympathise, and understand what sheís going through.
But then sheís saved when she goes to the party, I still want someone to throw me one though, but if I ask it wonít be a surpriseÖhmm Iíll have to think about this!
And yay Fabian and Gideon were there, I loved their reactions to them kissing!
Níaw this chapter so fluff filled, it was wonderful!Author's Response: 3 reviews a day is great! I'm glad you're still enjoying the story. :)
I agree about football, the rules are too much and it's boring. I'm glad my husband isn't that into it so I don't have to hear about it all the time haha
I'm glad Molly is relateable - I like her a lot so I want other people to like her too, to see her for more than just the mom who yells and punishes the kids for misbehaving. Probably because I'm a mom myself.
The fluff! It's all over this story. Thank you so much for the review! Report Review
Arthur really does love Molly? I mean heís willing to break the rules for her, and he always seemed like a rule abiding person to me! Well I guess he doesnít have to watch her now, as heís dating her! I liked the fact that he talked to the muggleborn students. They probably didnít though; I mean how on earth do you explain the function of a rubber duck?
Reidís such an odd character, but every time heís mentioned I internally cheer, as he provides so many laughs! Heís socially doesnít seem to be very high, I mean look what he did to the person he likes, but his mental intelligence is very high, and if you watch TBBT, he seems to remind of Sheldon Cooper, due to the contrast of both forms of intelligence.
Ooh Arthur was having rather racy thoughts? I never would have thought he would be the type to have those! It was funny to see him a different light though, and it would be funny to see Arthur like that in Mollyís mind!
And yay for the Gideon and Fabian, theyíre just like replicas of Fred and George! I really do hope they appear more in the story, as even though theyíve only had minor appearances, every time theyíve made me laugh!
I loved the little side note, it made me laugh;DAuthor's Response: Of course he does! He's head over heels. I think Arthur is mostly rule-abiding, but he does what he needs to do and likes to smooth things over for people.
Reid is fun - he's a genius and an egotistical jerk. That winds up being fun to write. He's a teenager and will grow out of it. He's not like Sheldon except in that he is very smart.
Arthur is a teenager after all - hormones! lol. Poor guy. And of course he and Molly have a healthy attraction to each other, they did have 7 kids after all.
Gideon and Fabian are some of my favorites ;)
Thank you for the review! Report Review
Yay! Arthurís hoping for Reid and Cecilia to get together as well. Well Iím guessing most of them are hoping that they get together as that way it will stop them arguing, and allow both of their friendship groups to be together.
You write Molly and Arthurís interaction with one another so easily, and it just seems so natural, that I love reading them, as you just slip them in subtly so you donít tend to notice them. I think thatís great because if it was in your face it would just get irritating.
I noticed Hattie smug look, and itís annoying me why it was there. Hopefully weíll find out soon!
And yaya a secret party, there always fun. I just hope that Molly doesnít think that somethingís going on with Hattie and Arthur due to all the planning. I wish someone would plan me a secret party now!
Another great chapter!Author's Response: Reid and Cecilia getting together would help the two groups blend better, wouldn't it?
Thank you! I do think it would get irritating after a bit, so I'm glad the portrayal is good. Thanks for the lovely compliments!
I hope the reason for Hattie's look is clear now! :) Secret parties are fun.

Iím backÖfor the 9th time;)
I really loved that the realisation scene when Molly admits to loving Arthur and the fact that she had to change her scribble as well! As they got married quickly, I can see why now they had to fall in love quickly to make it work!
I liked the idea of the girlís council session, it was nice to see such a muggle concept being used in the wizarding world, and Siobhan had rather been under my radar so far, so it was funny to see her complaining about sleeping on the floor, but I can see her point though!
The fact that Cecilia mentions Reid quite a lot, may suggest a change of heart. I donít why Iím obsessed about these two getting together, I just think they would be really cool together.
Another great chapter!Author's Response: Ah, she did fall in love quickly ;) Probably at this point it's really infatuation, but it will develop into love. Cause of course they wind up together. They did run off quickly, and Molly says they were "made for each other", so I think it was a love at first sight sort of thing. Once she noticed him, anyway. lol
The Gryffindor Girls Council is fun, isn't it? They're so cute. Siobhan is an interesting one, she's probably the most complex of the girls. Sleeping on the floor is silly, but Molly has a point about it. ;)
Cecilia does talk about him a lot, doesn't she?
Thank you for reviewing! Report Review
I really love how Arthur is trying to make this date so perfect, as itís just lovely, as you would have never have put him down as a perfectionist, but I guess if itís due to Molly of course heís going to be one! And the way he was reminiscing about the kiss, it just made me aw so much!
Yay there was a sign of hope on the Reid/Cecilia front! I really hope they work out, as then they could double date, and that would just be lovely!
It was nice to see more of Arthurís friends, as weíve only got to know Reid, and they all seem so funny and unique. On the point of peeling grapes, it has a different texture but itís still lovely!
I liked the idea of the photo, and is Cecilia strangling Reid? It was nice to see the groups blend together, so they donít have to divide their friendships!
Another great chapter as usual!Author's Response: Cecilia wasn't strangling Reid. That was a joke about how wizard photos seem to display the emotions of the subjects and not just what they were doing. :)
Arthur tries so hard. He does want to make things just right for Molly, cause he's hoping to make her fall in love with him.
The two circles of friends blending together is fun. They both want to spend time with each other, and also with their friends, so I think it's inevitable. They're all (except Cosmo) in the same year so the same classes anyway.

Hello itís me again! I was glad to see that you loved that people review every chapter, so Iíll carry on then;)
I found it was nice that you included the fact that she had knitted her own hat, as the Weasleyís knitted jumpers are rather important, I mean I even want one myself. It was interesting that she had already started knitting at this age, hopefully her attempt at it, are better than Hermioneís for the house elves!
Ok a little Brit pick, sorry but I canít help myself! We wouldnít say slumber party, we would say sleepover party instead :)
Cecilia and Reid hypothetically dating keeps on coming up, I hope it does, as they sound like rather different characters, and it would be funny to see them together. I do hope the fire cracker story does come up, as every time itís mentioned it makes me want to know what happened even more.
I liked the brief mention of their families; I forgot about old Bilius, I hope he appears, as heís so hyped up in the book, I need to meet this man! And Fabian and Gideon I hope they make an appearance as well, as I want to see the predescors of Fred and George.
Oops no need to write the last bit as they just made an appearance! Their relationship seemed so natural and so typical for annoying brothers!
Another great chapter, and I loved their kiss scene!Author's Response: I really do love reviews on every chapter! It's not that common after a story is finished, so I especially love them :)
Molly and her knitting! She would've had more time for it pre-motherhood so I'm sure she did quite well. And from canon, she seems to have been good at it, so I think she'd be better than Hermione knitting for the house elves.
Ah thank you for the Brit pick! I did my best, but I am not British so there are I'm sure a lot of errors in here.
Cecilia and Reid is a recurring plotline :) You'll have to keep reading to see. I did a one-shot on the firecracker incident, you can find it on my author profile if you want to read it!
Bilius does appear in the story a couple of times! I think you'll like him, I had a lot of fun writing his part. He sounded like he was a hoot. Fabian and Gideon are in this story quite a few times.
Thank you so much for reviewing! Report Review
I hope youíre not getting annoyed by all these reviews, itís just if I left it to the end, I wouldnít be able to express my love for this story, so itís easier doing it this way ;)
I really loved the Ďnewí Arthur in this chapter, he just seemed so much for confident especially with the ĎHello ladiesí, I just couldnít help but laugh, as thatís possibly one of the last things I could have imagined he would say. I guess it just shows you how much love can you change you, and itís lovely seeing him braver.
Molly such a hypocrite! Dreading that she would receive a howler yet she sends her son one. I mean driving a flying car to Hogwarts and giving someone a love potion, are similar levels of crime, so I do feel she was unfair to poor old Ron.
We got to know a bit more about their friends characters today which was nice, especially Reid heís just so funny, I hope we get to know more about the firecracker incident as it sounds very entertaining. Poor old Cecilia you can tell that he still loves her but heís not having any of it.
Another great chapter in my opinion, but I donít really need to say that as all of its awesome!Author's Response: I **adore** reviews on every chapter! Never fear, I am enjoying them immensely. The opposite of annoyed, I promise!
Arthur gains a lot of confidence through dating Molly. He tries to be suave and polite to her friends so everyone will like him.
Ah it's not hypocrisy! When you're a teenager, you don't want to get in trouble, but as an adult you have to be the one to deal out trouble. It's the cycle of life. lol She did get up to some crazy things, didn't she? The love potion is canon, the events surrounding it are my own invention. I think the underage grand theft auto was definitely worse than a little love potion, though.
Their circles of friends are definitely a big part of the story. Reid does still have a thing for Cecilia haha.
Thank you so much! I'll get to answering your other reviews very soon, but I wanted to let you know that I love it when people review every chapter, so no worries about that. :) Report Review
Hello itís me again!
I really liked the lines Molly had to write, I never would have thought Flitwick could have been so funny and creative, when giving lines out. Itís nice to see from Mollyís perspective that Arthur seems rather brave, as he still wanted to date her despite the mishap!
Itís just so sweet their love for one another, it just seems so genuine and natural, and just so lovely, I canít even describe it, their thoughts for one another are just lovely. Thanks to this story Arthur and Molly now become my new OTP! I just canít get enough of them :D
Wahah this chapter was awesome as the fluff was just heart-warming, and has left me with a happy glow! Your writing is equally as awesome as Molly and Arthur!Author's Response: Molly's lines are one of my favorite parts of the love potion incident (which is based on a canon scene but the details of the incident are all my invention). Arthur is brave for wanting to date her after seeing that love potion mess, isn't he? Probably he should think she's a bit crazy.
Arthur/Molly is my favorite pairing in the HP universe. I really love them. I think their being still totally in love thirty years later shows how much they really had a true love story, you know?
Thank you so much for the lovely review! Report Review
Hello Iím back again I would have carried on reading and reviewing yesterday, but it got to midnight so I thought it was best if I stopped ;)
Iím really liking Arthurís POV, as it just seems so realistic and so like him, and itís really adorable to read his thoughts. The way he likes Molly and he still canít recover from a kiss, I guess itís like how Molly fan girled Thad, and heís fan boying (if thatís a word?), Molly, and itís just so sweet. I think the nicest thing is, is that he thinks he wonít get his happy ending, yet we all know that he well.
Then that little scene when they got to know each other a bit. Though I did feel it was a bit rushed that Arthur was already asking her out on a date, I did find it very sweet, especially him shouting about that fact in the middle of the corridor!
Arthur seems so enthusiastic about Muggle Studies it really is sweet, as thatís such a major part of his character and Iím glad that you placed emphasis on it. I hope we get to know their respective friends a bit more, as they do seem to be an interesting bunch!
Another awesome chapter, and Iím off to read the next!Author's Response: Welcome back! I'm glad you're still reading. But get some sleep too!
Arthur's POV chapters became my favorites to write during this story and the sequel. I just really love him. He's a great guy. He is fangirling a bit over Molly haha. Aww bless. He's so sweet.
It was rushed, the first seven chapters or so were intended to be a short story originally, so I whipped through things rather quickly. But then I decided to keep going and so it's a bit rough early on. I really should rewrite it one day.
Arthur and his Muggles. He does love his Muggle things. Their circle of friends will definitely feature a lot in this story! Thank you very much for the review! Report Review
Hello Iím back again!
I felt rather sorry for Arthur again at the beginning of the chapter, I think it was mainly due to his little remark about how he usually gets his embarrassment without a potion needed, as I hate to think someone is deliberately horrible to him, as heís such a delightful character, and your characterisation of him is wonderful and so true to his character.
I loved that Arthur had loved Molly since 4th year as it was just lovely, and it reminded me greatly of James and Lily, and how James had to watch from the side lines just like Arthurís having to do, and you canít help but pity them, as you know that they would be a great couple, itís the other half is naÔve about that.
I didnít mention it in the last chapter, so Iíll say it here, I love McGonagall in this story, as you can tell she cares for her students and that she feels for them, and your portrayal of her is excellent, so I hope she features more!
I loved all the Harry Potter eqsue names as they just so much more to the story, and itís always fun to go and look up the meaning of them, and see if it identifies with the character or not!
Then that kiss at the end I was not expecting that, even if it was only on the cheek! Nice surprising me, as I felt so happy for Arthur!
Another awesome chapter in my opinion! I canít wait to read the next!Author's Response: Poor Arthur. He's such a nice guy. And he just loves her even when she didn't really notice him. Molly's a bit, let's say "focused" hehe... So he was outside of her scope before now. But now they're getting together, and the fluff begins.
I was glad to write McGonagall a few times in this story and its spin-offs, because I really like her a lot and hadn't written her before. She's an interesting character, especially now that we know all that backstory from the Pottermore site.
I tried to keep the names Potter-ish. I'm glad you like them! Some of the meanings are specific to the characters and some aren't as much.
Just a quick kiss for Arthur, but it means a lot to him! Thank you very much for the review! Report Review
It was funny that Molly and her son both needed a love potion antidote from Slughorn though both for different reasons, but it really does show you what a mess they can land you in! Then the fact that he them oak matured mead! Too much of a coincidence I think;)
Poor old Molly having her heart crushed though it was nice to see that Thad was nice about, as I expected him to be very annoyed and angry at her, given that he came off as having a bit of an ego, well I guess this means her and Arthur can be together now! As you can see how Mollyís affection for him growing as she realises that he is in fact rather nice!
Iím really starting to like this story, and Iím so annoyed with myself for only reading it now!Author's Response: Yeah, I figured oak matured mead is probably something Slughorn seeks out on the regular ;) It was fun to throw that in there though, especially because he doesn't remember Molly at this point at all when meeting her son.
I'm so glad you're enjoying it! Thank you for reviewing! Report Review
Hello there, Iíve been meaning to check out this story for ages, but as itís been nominated in the ship off itís an incentive for me to finally read it! And I can just quickly say I love The Supremes and that song, and it seems to perfectly fit what I imagine Arthur and Mollyís relationship to be like!
I rather liked Molly being adventurous as itís a nice change from the housewife we usually see her as, and it was funny to see that she had other romantic interests other than Arthur! And the fact that she wants to make a love potion must show that sheís a clever, a thing people often ignore and assume sheís not as sheís just a homemaker.
Poor old Arthur having to be a lackey of someone else, heís always mistreated isnít he and he doesnít deserve to as he is a lovely person! And poor old Molly getting herself into a Ďwobbleí as both of them took the potion!
I thought it was a great start to the story and I canít wait to read on!Author's Response: I'm so sorry it took me so long to respond to your reviews! I've been inexcusably lazy about getting to these.
I really enjoyed reading your reviews. Thank you so much for reviewing every chapter! It's really made me smile to hear what you think about the story as it progresses.
Molly has a lot more spunk than she generally gets credit for in fanfic, which I think is primarily because in the books we only see her as a 40-something mother, and the majority of fanfic writers are (it seems) teenagers. So I approach her a bit differently. :)
Arthur isn't a lackey exactly, Molly just doesn't view him as the important person in this exchange because she's focused on Thad.
Thank you again for the review! Report Review
I honestly never thought much about Arthur/Molly. I mean, yes, a little subconsciously, but I never really took that much time. I always had the idea of Molly being sweet sort of fabulous friend and Arthur being just loyal (again, didn't think much on this), but that was it really. As for their relationship, I pictured sort of the happily ever after golden couple that got hitched up fast due to coming war. So, when I read this, and I think it was perfect. Really. That would have been exactly what happened. That would be exactly how Molly would be, and exactly how Arthur would be, and it would all be exactly like that, and I'm not sure how I ever imagined otherwise. The way you write, its like you spun me into your reality. Reading through the chapters, I got so super attached to the characters. You just wrote them all to life, and you made them just so real.
So, I just want to squee at their relationship. It was like a real relationship. Started of the stranger things - a plan gone wrong. And even though Molly originally liked another bloke, at first he was somewhat cute, and then they were just *insertllotsalovehere* And its just Weasley. To me, the Weasley's have always been a family with so much love, and ti makes sense that Molly and Arthur would have the same sort of warm and fuzziness to it like their family to come. Every word just skipped to the next, and I found myself just adoring this. It just worked somehow. All the gears clicked together, and they have the kind of relationship with its bumps and its dead ends, but it all worked. Just like how your writing got these gears turning.
Molly/Arthur - just woah with writing it.Author's Response: I think most people don't put as much thought into Molly/Arthur as I have ;) lol. Possibly this means I need a life. I really love them together, especially when they're young. They're just so cute. I'm so glad you liked how I wrote them as teenagers! I tried to keep them in character, keeping elements of their adult selves and putting them back to pre-parenting days.
Warm and fuzzies is definitely how this ship rolls. Molly and Arthur have such a solid relationship as grown-ups, even with so many kids and a lot of heartache and poverty, I think they had to have started with some serious true love.
Thank you so much for the kind review! I'm very happy to hear how well you liked the story. I hope you get a chance to read the rest of this series, and let me know what you think! :) Report Review
I've been lurking around your Author's Page for quite some time, totally hooked on the "Midnight" series. I love Rose and Scorpius and today, I though why not try and read "The Unsinkable Molly Prewett" that everybody is talking about? That was several hours ago, I've been glued to my laptop.
First, I have to say that at one point my cheeks were hurting from all the smiling I did while reading. Molly and Arthur are so sweet together and you've captured that perfectly here. It's in tune with the years when they were young and the kind of education young people received back then.
Molly was bossy even then, which I loved, but you could see her maternal side when interacting with the people around her. As for Arthur, I fell in love with him. I would marry him in a heartbeat.
I'm off to read the rest of the series now and I'll be reviewing your stories soon!
RalAuthor's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you gave it a chance, and even more happy that you enjoyed it! Unsinkable was the first novel-length fanfic I wrote, and even though it's not perfect I'm still pretty proud of it. I tried to make it as canon and era-accurate as possible, especially as you said with the way young people were educated in the 1960s.
Thank you for reviewing, and I hope you like the rest of the series as well! Report Review
Ah this was a really sweet chapter. I loved that nothing bad happeded during their date even though they had run into her brothers who seemed like they were up to something. And he got to kiss her! He got to kiss her more than once. This was a great chapter and i enjoyed the interaction between them while on their date. I loved that they talked about more important stuff like classes and such it really added to them getting to know to each other. I cant wait to see what you have come up for us next. Great job!
~Slytherinchica08~Author's Response: Gideon and Fabian are almost always up to something ;) Just enough kissing for a first date, but still being a proper young lady of the late 1960s. I'm so glad you liked the chapter, thank you for reviewing! Report Review
You know, I'm already starting to run out of things to say for this story because its just so good! I feel like each chapter I'm just telling you the exact same thing but every chapter is just so good! There's no mistakes to be found, the flow is amazing, and so is the story line! It's all just amazing and wonderful and I have no problems with this story at all! I love the relationship between Arthur and Molly and it grows with each chapter. I did feel bad for Arthur though when he was daydreaming about having Molly as his wife and then she comes up behind him and scares him causing him to knock over his inkwell. I'm hoping the next chapter is going to be their date and I'm just looking so forward to it! I can't wait to see what will happen to them when they are finally on their own and together! YAY! And will she let him kiss her on the first date or will she make him wait? I don't know but I know that I will be reading more so I can find out! Great Job!
~Slytherinchica08~Author's Response: Aw thank you so much! I'm glad you like the story :) I'm very compulsive about grammar and spelling so hopefully there's no typos kicking around in here. It drives me nuts when I find one. Arthur is easily distracted by thought of Molly. He was devoted to her even before they got together. Unrequited love that wound up fulfilled. Lucky for him ;) Thank you very much for the review, I really appreciate it! Report Review
Oh why does each chapter make me smile even more than the last? I'm glad I'm alone reading this or people would begin to question my sanity. I loved this chapter as I have for all the previous ones. I thought this was very sweet and I just love the interactions between Molly and Arthur, he really is such a gentleman when it comes to her and its just so cute to read about! And the fact that he admitts that he can't concentrate around her is just so sweet as well! It just really makes the reader understand how much she means to him! My favorite part though is probably her skipping out of the library and proceeding to say to a Slytherin how its such a fine day! I can only imagine what that must be like for the Slytherin girl to be told by a Gryffindor girl how its such a fine day. As always, I look forward to the next chapter! Great Job!
~Slytherinchica08~Author's Response: Ah the fluff is contagious! You've caught the bug. It makes me smile that I managed that. Maybe silly but I am glad I can get an emotional response out of people. I adore writers who can do that so when I manage it, it makes me very happy. Molly's very cheerful here since she's spent so much time liking someone who didn't like her back, now she's got someone who likes her - even when she hadn't liked him back. Hopefully that makes sense. Anyway thank you so much for reviewing! Report Review
Oh another sweet chapter from Arthurs pov! I love how devoted he already seems to her, waiting for her after her detention just so he could walk her back to the common room! Gosh I wish a boy would do something sweet like that for me! Though I do find it rather funny that the whole reason he sat there waiting for her was to ask her what she had said to her friends about them going on a date and then as soon as he saw her that all went out the window! I'm very interested to see what will happen between the two of them next and on their date! I was laughing throughout this chapter. First for his behavior after she agreed to a date and then second for the way he pronounced Muggle items such as tellyvision and my favorite, eckeltricity. What a great and fun chapter this was to read though, I very much enjoyed it! Great Job!
~Slytherinchica08~Author's Response: Arthur's POV chapters make me happy. I really liked writing him. He's just so awesome. My not-so-secret Weasley crush, other than Charlie haha. Devoted is a good word, I think he and Molly as adults are very devoted to each other and he's already in love with her (probably really just infatuated since he didn't know her super well at this point) so he's already pretty stuck on her. :) I had fun throwing in his Muggle obsession here. Molly's still in the new phase of the relationship and finds it cute instead of annoying haha. Thank you so much for the review, I really appreciate it! Report Review
Oh I loved this chapter, I loved everything about it! I think it was wonderful to see this chapter from his pov and what he was really thinking about the whole thing and its so sweet to know that while she did something rather horrible, he believes that he could never really be mad at her for it and neither could Thad, talk about such wonderful people! And that ending! "It was nothing" "It was something." Gosh that had me all giddy especially when she planted the kiss on his cheek! EEEK! How can it be that on only chapter three and I am so sucked in and in love with these characters?! Did you put a spell on this story or something?
Gosh this story is so very addicting and you can bet that i will be back to read more as the year goes on and once I'm finished with this one I will probably continue to make my way through the rest of your stories as this one is just amazing and I have a feeling that I will find all of your other stories as amazing! I just loved this whole chapter and I really can't wait to read the next chapter! Great Job!
~Slytherinchica08~Author's Response: Ah the fluff has sucked you in! I don't know how it happened, but the fluff in this story is totally contagious. I am the least fluffy person ever in real life, and I don't even know where this came from haha. Molly/Arthur clearly drives me to it. I just adore them. And their fluff. This story is probably the fluffiest thing I've ever written. And I had so much fun writing it, too! It's sort of a love letter to my favorite HP ship :)
Arthur's POV chapters were some of my favorites to write. I just love him so much, he's such a great guy. Making Molly fall for him wasn't hard ;)
Thank you so much for the review! I hope you keep reading, and I'm so pleased you're enjoying this story! Report Review
