Now I want to go back and re-read HBP and DH, but I'm only on Chamber of Secrets (in my latest round of reading the entire series... pretty sure this makes my 10th round, lol). Lovely as ever, my dear.Author's Response: OMG you're here! Hey you, it's good to see you! I'm really glad you liked this one :D I think I've read the books about 10-12 times. Some more than others!
Thanks for reviewing! *hugs* Report Review
Oh snap, this is the best story you've written out of the 3 I've read! Incredibly sweet, heartwarming, and just outstanding. This is the lesson to kids: Time is like a band-aid with cream that doesn't sting.
The lesson to adults: Time Heals All Wounds.Author's Response: Awww, baby, I love your analogy. Love you to the moon and back! Report Review
Wow... I never thought I'd get to meet "Duddydum's" family... past Vernon and Petunia of course. Thanks for bringing me this close.Author's Response: You're very welcome, my dear. Report Review
I love this twist!!! Again... The title truly butts in here!Author's Response: Thanks, sweetie! Report Review
:O. Harry was...excited? Well, that definitely explains the title...Author's Response: ;o) You think? Report Review
I kind of figured it was Dudley when I read about "the gentleman's" thoughts. And what did you make Ginny think! Harry might not like this surprise from her...Author's Response: I did a bit of foreshadowing there, huh? Report Review
You have done such an excellent job! This story truly emphasizes the strengthening relationship between Ron and Hermione.
~KatyAuthor's Response: Oh, thank you my sweet Katybug. I'm thrilled that you liked it and that I can finally share my love of Harry Potter with my girls. This was a very well written review. :o) Report Review
LMAO! Rose... this is hysterical! If I were a Draco fan I'd truly feel as if I were fawning over him. ANd I loved the little "insert, blah blah blah, here". This was wonderful!Author's Response: Aw, thank you so much, Taryn! I'm not much of a Draco fangirl myself, either, so I'm glad someone who hasn't jumped on the "Draco-is-the-perfect-lover" train enjoyed it. ;) Report Review
And we zoom through time again! I'm curious... is the you-know-who thing with Rose her trying to make Scorpius jealous? I loved the banter between Scorpius and Al... you've got such a quick wit and it shows through them. I've said it before, but I'd love to be included in that group!Author's Response: ginwannabe~
Oh, I'm quick witted, am I? I spend forever on their banter and snide remarks! =P
Ask me no questions, I'll tell you no lies. =D Thanks for the great reviews!
I want to be included in that group! =( I want a silly nickname, other than Bird.

I admit the jump in time was a bit abrupt, but I really do think you handled it well. And really, if we're ever going to see Albus fall for someone other than a red head, he needs to age a bit, doesn't he ;o). The cameraderie (not sure I spelled that correctly) that you have with this next generation is so great. I wish I'd had a group of friends like this when I was a kid. I love the nicknames and teasing back and forth. Keep it up!!Author's Response: ginwannabe~
Thanks for the comments on the bantering and dialogue! I've never really done much in the way of humor writing so it's good to know I'm passing in the slightest.
=D I think you spelled it right...oh, well!

I like how you described Scorpius avoiding his father at the beginning. And I really love the way you portray Rose. She seems to really be a good blend of both Ron and Hermione. Hermione's brains and common sense, Ron's fun loving attitude and mouth.
I'm so sorry you lost all my other reviews. I can't remember what all I've already said, so I'm just doing a quick note to let you know I'm still reading and loving!Author's Response: ginwannabe~
No worries! I always love hearing from you! ^^
Thank you for all the great compliments you always give me! =D

Maja... this was lovely! Absolutely lovely. I didn't notice any grammar or spelling mistakes (certainly none that distracted from the story), and I think you have Hermione spot on! Even a brilliant witch who doesn't normally worry about looks, has her insecure moments... we all do. And it's always great to have a nice guy make us feel pretty. You're descriptions are fluid and paint a beautiful picture. Really well done, I'm looking forward to reading more of this, just so long as the Dramione part is only a teeny teeny tiny part ;o).Author's Response: Hello!
Thank you, I really appreciate a review from you! I did try quite hard with this one to keep it canon, so I love that you noticed that. :)
I actually had another chapter all written and everything, except it wasn't accepted because I had too many quotes from the books. So I need to go back and do that, I think. the Dramione part was actually completely unplanned, I have no idea where it came from, hermione just did it. Anyway, I managed to get rid of him in the third chapter, I think, I just need to make sure he stays away. :) You know, I never used to believe in that thing of characters planning their own way, but it's totally true! Argh, makes it very difficult. ^_^
Anyway, I'll try and redo the second chapter quickly. Thank you for reviewing! Report Review
LOL...I swear I feel the same way about this story as I do about the TV show LOST...everytime I think...*this* is the chapter (or episode) that will make everything make sense...you go and confuse me even more. I'm having a hard time following all of this. So, let me just say...it's interesting as always, and I'm looking forward to the next chapter (because maybe *that* will help everything fall into place ;o).Author's Response: maybe so, maybe not. You'll just have to wait. Report Review
Oh, Ali...this is most definitely quirky! And I'm laughing so hard that I have another little twitty! But how could you? It's bad enough that Neville had to lose his toad in my story...but his wife? How much can one man take? Poor Neville. I loved the minute details, the door handle, the comments about her mother, the asides about Jake's name. And you know...I'm glad that you have taken Romilda and made her likeable, because she wasn't very in the books and most people in fan fictiondom have her as this vindictive, twisted person. I like your version of her. Definitely favoriting this one. I can't wait to see the rest of it!Author's Response: Oh Thank you Taryn! I was so worried about it being quirky. How could I? Blame he evil Gubby. She gave me specifics. And that included kill off Hannah.
I wasn't sure about the minute details...especially the dorr handle, so I'm glad you liked it. :)
And yes. I like Romilda. There's a big character hiding beneath her, and this is my take. Thank you Taryn!!!! Report Review
I've loved this whole story! I loved that Ron was apologizing and that Hermione was laughing hysterically at him. And I'm glad you mentioned how little time Hermione spent with her family. I've always felt badly for her parents, getting to see so little of her. I know that she had to be away from them in order to be a part of the stories, but as a parent, I just can't imagine my child being gone from me for so long at such a young age.
I'm so excited that the 4th after story is finished. I'll have to check it out. I've enjoyed all those stories, as well.Author's Response: Thanks! I enjoyed writing this story, so I'm glad you enjoyed reading it.
The 4th after story is finished, and it should be up here soon. If you want to read it, I have already posted it here:

Just beautiful, Em! I love that Andy is playing a part in this lovely story ;o). What a lovely birthday present. Question: Should Joan-Paul, be spell Jean-Paul? That said...I'm so looking forward to more of this story. I love your Victoire, she's not nearly as caustic as Gubby's but she's got spunk and fire, and as we saw briefly in Synth your Teddoire is just so amazingly beautiful...I can't wait to see it develop. I do hope that someone puts Minnie in her place, lol...she's just obnoxious. Well done!Author's Response: Thank you, T :) Ooh yes, you're right about the name. Thanks!!! For reading and reviewing and being so lovely. You rock! Report Review
I need an Arthur to distract me from all my worries. I love how you use the Patronuses to explore the characters a little more, and that the twins can do them, too. Another great chapter. ;o)Author's Response: Heh. I got this mental image of Siobhan in a bar, smoking a ciggy and asking the guy next to her, "So, what's your Patronus?" and I had to write the cast doing Patronuses. mwahaha... Thanks! Glad you liked it :) Report Review
Wow...a black hole of sorts. But is this timeline Ginny alive or dead? Or does it even matter anymore if they've both been sucked into a vortex? I'm eager for the next chapter.Author's Response: Ginny has just been murdered. And every death matters. Don't fall into the view that it doesn't matter. It has the exact same effect on Harry's mind.

Great job. You really do descriptions well. Hopefully the next chapter won't take too long to post ;o).Author's Response: ginwannabe~
lol, no promises, but i'll try.

I've just enjoyed reading this from the comfort of my bedroom on my new laptop, and it was wonderful (the chapter, although reading in here is cool, too)! I've checked out that thread about Molly's patronus. I like the idea of the mongoose. I've often thought that Hermione's otter was significant because it was in the weasel family. Can't wait to see what you have in store for Ampara. Good to see you posting again!Author's Response: Hermione's otter was exactly what I had in mind! Now a mongoose is not in the family mustelidae, they're actually related to meerkats, but it's the principal I was going for, yes ;) Congrats on the new laptop, I know you're loving it! I'm getting a new one probably next week, this one is dying. It's been dropped a few times and I've already replaced the keyboard twice. Poor old thing. 3 years in laptop years is like 50 lol. Thanks, it's good to be back! The Classic is next week, so I'm going to try to get the next chap written before then but I've still got to do our costuming and practice the choreography and improv sections of our performance so it might be after the Classic. We'll see. Report Review
Bloody hell! You have GOT to stop doing this to me. My heart can't take it anymore. You even warned me...that author's note, said there would be a calm before the storm, but of course, I forget about the storm during the calm and then get slapped in the face with it on the other side. This is so intense, I'm glad we're coming to an end...I think I'm ready to get off this ride, LOL. The fact that I get so sucked into the story proves how talented you are. That and the fact that I'm able to read these monster chapters in one sitting and don't even notice the time. Update soon, please.Author's Response: this is the part where I laugh evilly! Report Review
OMG! Yeah...wasn't expecting that. Somehow I missed this update, so I'm going to quickly now run to the next chapter! Report Review
What do I think? I think I need to pick my jaw up off the floor. That was amazing, Ali. I'm completely blown away. It gave me chills. I love how you kept referring to her as "Shadow Girl" in the flashback, and the way you switched from first person to third. I love how you kept us guessing who she was married to and who she was in love with. If this is what the youth of this world can write...the future libraries will crumble from the weight of your books. I was writing drivel at your age. Wow!Author's Response: Yay! Taryn! *runsaroundcrazily*
You think this is amazing? Wow. And you're a teacher.
And I'm glad you think the switching was okay, I wasn't sure about it, but if you say so!
And yeah. I like people guessing. *blushes*
The future libraries will crumble? Taryn! *huggleglomp* You're so nice! Report Review
Aw...how sweet! I loved this chapter. Ron always jumping to the wrong conclusion, Hermione losing her temper. It was just lovely. And I loved the analogy of the rose. Beautiful.Author's Response: Thanks!!! I really loved this one, and I'm very proud of it. I was very happy with the rose analogy myself, and I'm so glad that it worked out well. Thanks again for reading and reviewing =) Report Review
Very interesting! Poor Hermione missing out on the magical moment. I was so fortunate not to be working full time when my kids were little and was able to be there for all the milestones. It would have broken my heart, too. I hope she's not too disappointed.Author's Response: Thanks for the review! Hermione's reaction will be in the final chapter: Sobs and Snitches. (Hope that title doesn't give too much away!)
But don't worry, it's fluff- ending on a sad note would be impossible!! Report Review
