Glad you liked the edited version of the epilogue, too.

P.S. The lady and I found this epilogue to be a perfectly poignant, touches-your-heart ending to an amazing epic! Congratulations again on your Dobby! I can't think of a more deserving author on this site! My reviewer's quill is trembling in anticipation at the prospect of another stellar offering from the Crusadiverse and it's master!

Author's Response: Really glad you liked the epilogue. Most of it came straight from siledubghlhase, whom I miss a great deal. But I did add a bit to it so that it could be its own stand-alone chapter. That's an edit I'd been wanting to do for quite a while. I always wanted to the story to end with Harry's "I'm in love" line, but when SD wrote that epilogue for me, I knew it HAD to go in. Problem was, as written, it was too short, so I had to include it at the end of the final chapter instead of letting it stand alone.

That said, I'm blushing with all the praise here, mate. Rest assured, more's on the way, just not sure when

Cheers,

Eldy

Congratulations on the 2011 Dobby Award, O great and learned one! Hope it won't be long until your next new magnus opus, Eldy! The lady and I are having to make due with re-reads of your library of masterpieces(including this one most recently)! Fortunately, they are still keeping me smiling! ;)

Author's Response: Auror!!

Great to hear from you mate. Sorry this was more of a "re hash" than somthing new, but hopefully I'll get the time and inclination to get my muse in gear. I do plan on writing another xmas story in the next few weeks that will be part of a gryffindor collaboration (like last year with Lumos Kedavra from A Very Gryffie Holiday). I'll post in my author's update when it posts.

Cheers,

Eldy

P.S. Thanks so much for the congrats. I was pretty floored when I won!

P.P.S. Glad to hear that my tales are still putting a smile on your face.

Bro, I sorta hate you right now, just so you know. I really, really don't like crying before I go to bed. It makes my eyes red and puffy and my nose run and just isn't fun at all. But thanks to you and this incredibly emotional epilogue that's what I'm doing at the moment.

And yes, it's all your fault.

I know I've read this before. Heck, I've read this epilogue a dozen times, and it still gets me every time, like a knife to the heart. Yes, I know 'Mione's going to be okay, and I'm so glad she's finally home at the Burrow and has Ronnie and the coming twins to keep her from being alone, but...but...you still killed off all my beloved Weasleys! Thinking of the Burrow with only the echos and memories of all those joyful voice breaks my heart. *sighs*

See, what you do? You're writing is so good you inspire real tears, and way too much inner turmoil and angst over imaginary people! Darn you, Eldy, and your litterary skill!

Your little sis *who is going off to find a new box of tissues*

P.S. I am oh so aware that I am behind in reading and reviewing your brilliant Crusade tales, something I hope to rectify in the coming weeks. And as for this "Last Crusade" tale you speak of, please oh please oh please tell me you aren't hinting that your fanfic days are coming to a close?

Author's Response: Dearest little sis,

No higher praise could be offered.But, before I let my head swell too much, I must point out that Siledubghlase (aka ghostchicken, aka sheila) was the brilliant force behind this amazing epilogue.

I'd always wanted Crusade to end on Harry's "I'm in love" line. But when Sheila whipped up this epilogue, I knew it HAD to go in the tale. Problem was, it was too short by about 150 words to stand on its own. I finally brought myself to edit it a bit today so it would be long enough to be its own chapter,after I made sure it would be ToS-kosher to split it off.Now, I suppose it has a little extra punch-and for that,I do apologize.But just a little ;)

The other thing that absolutely positively needed doing was an updated Author's Note. There were loads of reviewers that weren't mentioned in the old one and many more people who needed a proper thanks. And, most importantly, you, Mel, PP, WYHO and Co. needed proper recognition. I had to put that right, too.

Now, on a brighter note, never forget that the Grangers move into the Burrow too. All will be well for 'Mione. I promise!

As for a "fanfic farewell," I wouldn't be too concerned about me signing off. Right now, I'm merely contemplating an end to the Crusadiverse, not an end to writing. But I am concerned over the "last installment" in this series. That will be a very tricky piece of work to write well. Not really sure how I'm gonna pull that off.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts on Tales from the Crusadiverse. But don't rush it! I know RL is still crazy for you. No worries little sis!

Eldy

P.S. I'm really really pleased that it was you who left the first review for this new chapter!
