Am I the only person to notice that in the last few chapters there have been such words as 'eyes', 'face', the term 'falling in love' and 'arms' replaced with - 'puppies', 'purse', 'falling in a flowery tee-shirt' and 'garden shed'? Can someone please explain why this is happening? It really annoys me.
Though I love the story, the changes really but me. Report Review
Who is Mara's mum? Hannah Abbott? Report Review
Am I the only one who pictures Patrick as David Tenent?Author's Response: I think you might be! Not a bad visualization though, if I do say so myself. Thanks for reading! Report Review
But... But... What happened??? What about the wedding??? I'm so confused... Though I must say I like this ending MUCH better than the ending of James and "that wench of a woman." Lol!
Amazing story all in all, could you maybe, please, please, please, write a sequel?
~ParvatiAuthor's Response: Perhaps I was unclear in the epilogue, but the wedding never finished. James called it off before he said 'I do' and realized he was being a dunderhead and that Mara was his one and only.
I don't know about a sequel, but I could write a few one-shots for them.maybe. Report Review
WTF happens? I don't get it. Report Review
Soo, I just read your story in under twenty four hours and...it is AMAZING!! I'll admit that for a moment I thought James would marry Sophie and I almost threw my laptop on the floor! Lol, I would never do that to my baby.
Anyhow, thanks for a great read! I can relate to Mara and her awkwardness a lot. I trip over flat surfaces. ;)
Ta! XxAuthor's Response: You read the entire thing in 24 hours? Holy crap, that is amazing.
Thank you so so so so much for your compliments. This was my baby for nearly two years, from its early stages of pre-publishing development to the very end. It makes me so happy when others enjoy it because of all of the work I put in it, so thank you. Report Review
but u did not fill us in on everything in between. do tell us... its rather abrupt u know... Report Review
but...but... I need to know HOW they got together! Report Review
Oh you trickster, you! I spent a few minutes after the end chapter just staring at the computer screen saying "No" over and over. :D
This is a wonderful story! I love how you portrayed the characters and you're writing was fabulous. Report Review
I really like Mara's character, she's the perfect Longbottom. Great story :) Report Review
this looks fantastic! i'll carry on reading :) Report Review
WHAT THE HECK ? WHAT HAPPENED TO SOPHIE? PATRICK ? THEIR MOVING IN TOGETHER? THEIR MARRIED? DID JAMES AND SOPHIE DIVORCE? CAN U EXPLAIN THIS TO ME? Report Review
absolutely perfect. i forgive you for the last chapter. this MORE than made up for it. i can't stop grinning like a total maniac.
i loved this story. i'm glad i stayed up all night to read it. i'm totally serious. It's 6am right now. SO WORTH IT!
and yeah, with the first author's note of the story, talking about non happy romance stories, i thought you might have fed james to the dragon lady to teach mara a lesson. but you're obviously WAY too awesome to do such a horrendous thing.
i will truly miss these characters. especially baby jack. Report Review
WHAT?! i mean -- WHAT?!?!?!?
did you SERIOUSLY just end it there?! HOW COULD YOU BE SO CRUEL?! i am DYING OVER HERE.
*cue loud painful scream* Report Review
awww, that ending right there was just about the most bittersweet thing i have ever read. =( Report Review
oh god. vomit. i can't believe the wedding is still on! GROSS!
i mean, i knew it would be, considering the epilogue. but EW! i'm just sonfrustrated right now! Report Review
who's in the janus thickey ward?? should that sound familiar to me? Report Review
you know, this chapter made me realize how much of this story reminds me of "my best friend's wedding." but a few differences: the fact that baby jack EXISTS, kilpatrick isn't gay OR mara's bff (so i KNOW that's going to be interesting), and mara's probably got a better chance of winning james than julia did when trying to win dermot. all DEFINITE improvements if you ask me.
ginny always was one of the smart ones. =D
CANNOT BELIEVE all that is going on with this story. Report Review
i LOVE james POV, especially when he hints at loving mara. ;D Report Review
ahhh!!! i always liked teddy lupin. XD Report Review
ugh! I HATE attractive other women! lol. i am DYING to find out what happens next -- thank god i don't have to wait! Report Review
you have NO IDEA exactly how ecstatic i was to find that mara was a longbottom. XD
and, um, they slept together MORE than once?!?! O_O
is her mom hannah abbot?? this is why i love next gen stories. all of the possibilities for these characters in their adult lives -- they're just so much fun!
shame about neville's gran, though. she was awesome. =( Report Review
Yes! A happy ending! =D
Yes, well, you can hardly blame us for lacking faith in you! I really thought he was getting married to her! So glad that Mara gets to live her happily ever after! =D
That was wonderful! Thank you so much!
PS 10/10 =D Report Review
No. That wasn't how it was supposed to end. He wasn't supposed to marry her. That's not how it was supposed to happen. No. ='( I'm actually tearing up right now. ='( *sniffles* And he looked at her. He might have been saying Sophie's name, but he was thinking about Mara, he had to be thinking about Mara.
But honestly, that was beautiful.
I shall go onwards!

NO! DID SHE JUST ASK HER THAT?!?!?! Mara HAS to say no, she just has to.
