Very powerful and moving. It just gets better and better.Author's Response: BKL8008,
Thank you! That is a wonderful compliment for this sad story. There is more to come soon as the next chapter is finished.
As soon as the queue re-opens, I will post it.
Thanks so much for reviewing!
Merry Christmas to you...

This is an impressive analysis of what Neville would be going through, and I think you've absolutely nailed it.Author's Response: Thank you so very much for this review, I really genuinely appreciate it! :) Report Review
Excellent read. I can see it happening just like this, if things had gone differently. There is only so much loss that one can take before madness sets in, I think, and this is a fantastic capture of it.Author's Response: Thank you so much! Wow this story is so ancient I'm glad that someone is still reading it :P I really appreciate you taking the time to come and read it. and you're definitely right, there is only so much death and heartbreak that someone can take before they snap, unfortunately.

That was hilarious! Enjoyed every word. And honestly, I wasn't ripping you off when I did my Star Trek story! I just found this one, and I'm glad I did! I can just see this happening with The Marauders. Wonderful job.Author's Response: Hello again! I'm glad this tickled your funny bone! I'm not worried about you stealing anything; Star Trek is very popular after all. Thanks again for another review! Report Review
I found the link to this one in the recommendations in the forums, in the Slytherin Common Room threads. I must say, this is an awesome read! Regulus & Kreacher are very well written, and I'd love to see more of what happened with them. Definitely going into my favorites list!Author's Response: Wow, this was recommended in the Slytherin Common Room? Cool! I'm really glad you enjoyed it. Regulus has always fascinated me. It's a shame that we never got to meet him in the books. I'm glad you think I got the two main characters right. Thank you for this lovely and unexpected review! :) Report Review
It looks like you get my 500th review. Lucky you!
I was browsing about the forums today when I saw the holiday review thread, although I'm not sure how to participate in it. I'm a bit thick on things like that.
Anyway, I very much enjoyed this one. Tonks and Charlie are great characters here, and the whole thing is so well defined in so few words. I especially enjoyed Tonks' remarks, and the ending was perfect. Just perfect! There really was a dragon, and Charlie thought that he'd been had while the little critter got away. Loved it! 10/10!Author's Response: 500th review!! Wow, thank you. :) I've never been extremely interested in Charlie, but I absolutely adore Tonks and the prospect of writing a story about the two of them was fun. I enjoyed writing it.

But Molly still won. Excellent bit.
I'm also wondering about the significance of Luna giving Hermione her wand.
Onward into the fray!Author's Response: The costs indeed -- it's very important to recognize that, and I'm glad that you did. :) Molly did still win, and I felt that she needed that, you know? Almost more in this story than in canon (though she did need it there too), because here she's lost two sons. Poor Molly. :(
It was wonderful hearing from you again, and it's fantastic to see that you're still reading and enjoying the story! Thank you very much for taking the time to stop by and let me know your thoughts! Report Review
Better detail, and certainly something to 'see' with Draco trying adapt. I think you did it well.Author's Response: thank you! your advice really did help. I'm slowly getting back into creative writing. I've been doing far too much academic writing these days. Thanks for reading! I appreciate any future advice and reviews from you! :) Report Review
I don't even know where to start, there's so much good stuff in this one. Let's just say 10/10 and I so want to see the next part.Author's Response: BKL8008,
Wow! Thank you for the 10/10! Especially coming from someone who normally would run. That really means a lot to me and makes my author heart soar. Yeah! :)
The next part is coming very soon. I just need to edit a bit more and then it will be posted.
Thanks so much!

Normally, I would have RUN from something like this, but the banner and description drew me in. I very much like the idea of no dialog, although I certainly could do it. This is well written, too, which is SO very refreshing. I actually feel Draco's pain sitting at the fire, burning the letters. Such a powerful image. I love the ring as well. Nicely done!Author's Response: BKL8008,
Well, I am so happy that you took a chance on my story and didn't run far, far away. :D
That banner turned out so beautifully that my jaw dropped at Draco's face when I first saw it. It was absolutely perfect for depicting his grief and all credit goes out to the artist at TDA. I'm in awe of their talents.
Thank you so much for your comments regarding my writing. Thank you. And I will admit, the idea of Draco burning the letters actually came from an in-law who confessed that when she lost her husband, it was the sympathy cards that were the most difficult to get through. ;(
Thank you so very much for your wonderful compliments and for taking the time to Review.
More to come soon...

I saw you on the most recent list, so I thought I'd have a look. Interesting premise! I want to see where this goes. Don't be afraid of a bit of detail, though, and making the chapters a touch longer! :)Author's Response: aw thanks! :) I am a little rusty with creative writing so thank you for the tips! I haven't written anything besides academic essays in a while. Thank you for reading and reviewing! :) Report Review
Argh! The van again! And this time the boy got zapped! I can't wait to see that letter to his friends at Hogwarts. "Hey, he's lost his memory, what do I do?"
I loved the interactions between ALL the boys, too, but especially Connor and Charlie. It's hard for social class polar opposites to be friends. So realistic. And the Pyrrhic victory theme? Epic in this case. Poor Louis...well worth the wait as always!Author's Response: Can't remember when that one came to me as a leitmotif for the chapter; certainly would amuse any number of my colleagues as I am fairly sure I'd find myself in Sammy's shoes more often than not... although I did actually use the phrase "I don't care what the result was" the other day. Life imitating art...?
One week until the end of term, and a chance to get back into the heart of this - I've barely written three paragraphs of the next chapter in the time you've come up with 50K words... Report Review
The use of the memory to set Greyback was great, and your take on what might have become of Seamus is even better. Something that I never considered. Well done!Author's Response: Hi! I'm really glad you enjoyed it.
Thanks for reading and taking the time to leave such nice reviews. Report Review
That was an entertaining orchestra of cliches, all strung together so pleasantly! I needed a good laugh, and you delivered one yet again! Thank you.Author's Response: Thanks a lot for reading, glad you enjoyed it! Report Review
It's an interesting premise, and I will hold off all judgements (admittedly tainted by other Titanic fiascoes). So far, it sounds interesting and I want to see what happens to this gang. Onward!Author's Response: I hope this will different to other Titanic stories. I hope you continue to like it. :)
Thank you for reviewing.

Yes, it is bizarre! I rather like it!
It's cool to see the battle from the viewpoint of an Inferius. Ouch...
Very creative and well thought out.Author's Response: Yay, glad you liked it! This one-shot was a bit on the morbid side in some areas, but I'm weird enough that I enjoy that sort of thing. Being an Inferius would be all sorts of creepy.
Thank you for reading and reviewing! Report Review
Once again, I am astounded.
You capture details and depth here that surely sound as if they come from experience. Having dealt with all of these things (substitute another malady for DS) and I can honestly say, you nailed it.
This is also refreshing in fanfic to see the NextGen Weasley/Potter Clan not being all snowy angels singing hallelujah. They are flawed. Deeply flawed. They have problems to which we can relate. They are not fluffy cardboard cutouts here. (I am currently doing a Molly/Arthur one with a lot of strife; it's not going over well I don't think!)
Again, an amazing read. I am impressed!Author's Response: Thank you so much for the amazing review. :)
My oldest sister has DS, so I do have a lot of experience there. I also have a lot of experience with Lucy, but I won't go into detail there.
Honestly, the 'happy, perfect' NextGen is something I cannot see as plausible. Those kids are under an amazing amount of pressure to try to live up to their parents- some react in different ways.
I wish you luck on Molly/Arthur. If anyone, they seem like a bit of a fairytale to me. :) I'm so glad you liked it, and thanks (as always) for the amazing review!

I can see Ron doing this. I think it's a great "what if" and capture. You could go on with them stunning Ron by confronting him with it, something like Hermione saying, "No, Ron, George already asked." Then Ron would flip. Or Harry could offhandedly say to Ginny, "I want to name our first son James, OK?" Of course, Ron would flip. Although the vague ending is good, too. It leaves us with tons of 'what if's', and it IS so Ron.Author's Response: Thank you so much for reviewing. And I like your ideas. "Specially the one about Harry and Ginny. Ron would have a fit. He doesn't see Ginny getting married and having kids, let alone having sex, until she is... probably 50 years old. LOL I should add on more... if I can think of something good.
Wow, this is thrilling!
And a prime example of the law being stupid. period. "Kill All the Laywers..." Well, maybe not Hermione, but you know what I mean?!Author's Response: Hi! I'm glad you enjoyed the first chapter. We will definitely let Hermione live, and Albus as well. They're fun lawyers to write.

It's touching, and I've often watched the Pensieve bits (the best thing about it) from that awful DH2 film. This reminds me much of that. I don't think you need the "I" and "II" and "III" stuff though. I think it flows well enough without those. Touching. I liked the part with the wedding. I can see Snape doing this.Author's Response: Thanks so much, I was wondering if the flow could do with or without it. I'm having a beta look over this as well so I'm just waiting for it to get back to me! Thanks for your review! Report Review
Have to admit, I don't like this singing group, but the lyrics fit and this is so very touching.Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it despite not liking the band. Rascal Flatts is one of my favorites. Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) Report Review
And someone needs expelled over this one!Author's Response: Indeed! Haha, people so rarely ever get expelled from Hogwarts. Except Hagrid...poor Hagrid. Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) Report Review
Poor kids just can't have a normal year, can they? You'd think someone would do something about all this abuse, too? And a nonverbal 'Puff was it, a few chap's ago? Hm.Author's Response: Nope, can't have a normal year at all. Or any normal years, really... Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) Report Review
Dont' you just hate it when canon pops up later?! I worked and worked and Jo says Teddy isn't a werewolf. Pardon me?!
This has become enthralling, and I'm too sick to sleep, so on we go! Liking it more and more, honestly, despite my initial misgivings. And that's saying a lot, considering the NyQuil!Author's Response: It's such a love/hate relationship! I'm always a fan of getting more canon, but when it makes my stories non-canon... I like keeping things canon. I think it would've been interesting if Teddy had been a werewolf. Aw, I'm glad you like it so far. Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) Report Review
The eclair was masterful, but I think it's too obvious to be Willinson. Poor Matt...Author's Response: I loved writing about the eclair. So funny! Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) Report Review
