4th November 2013:
Please please write some more im desperate to hear what happens next. This is like one of the first stories i read and it's still one of my favourites.

Author's Response: I'm so sorry that you have been left hanging on this story. I really do want to finish it sometime, but my plot needs some serious reworking and I just haven't had time to sit down and do it. Maybe someday.

Great, great story! No sure if you're still around, but I hope one day u will finish this. I love the love shown & the hate as well. We haven't Ron told Hermione? Please come back & soon pease! Thanks

Author's Response: Thank you!

I AM still around, just struggling to come up from the pile of real life I'm buried in. I'm starting to post again, but it will be a while before I get back to this story. So sorry! But I wanted to let you know I got your review, and thank you for it!

I don't know if I've asked you already, but PLEASE CONTINUE THIS STORY!! It's one of my absolute favourites and I just want more :D :D :D

Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I really do plan to finish this someday, but I can't give you a time frame right now. :( Real life has really crimped my writing lately, and this story is especially stuck. When I can work out a plot problem, it will be back. Until then, know I'm thinking about it.

Thanks again for reading!

Oh, you must update soon!! This is so brilliant, and I must know what happens to my Freddie!!

Author's Response: I'm working on it! It will probably be a bit longer yet before this story gets going again as I'm working on finishing my other novel, Healing, while I iron some plot issues out on this one. But, it will be finished, I promise.

Review #5, by Pacific Wizard Standoff

5th January 2012:
1917 Farmgirl: Your stories are like great wine. They get better with age. I am a Twins fan. (No, not the baseball team). Just love how you told this story from George's point of view. It was great to delve into his mind and heart and hear and feel his thoughts and emotions. Your storytelling is so vivid I felt the anger, hurt, frustration and sadness along with George and all of the others.

Talk about tension! When Bill brandished the pistol, I thought Dursley was a gonner. That was riveting. The little side bar over the Petunia and her broken dishes was a stroke of genius. That one snippet with Bill's comeback towards her summed up the entire story.

You handled the whole business of physical abuse with honesty and compassion. Like all bullys, Vernon Dursley will always wallow in his own ignorance and minimize his own weaknesses on the suffering of the weak and innocent.

Amazing and moving story that deserves a 20/10. Very well done. PW

Author's Response: Well, if they get better with age, they're gonna be REALLY good considering how long it's taking me to write them! LOL. But thank you so much for the wonderful compliment!

You know me. I love my twins. I just think they are such great, underused characters that have so much more to offer than just comic relief. It was very enjoyable to put them in a situation where I could show the other sides of their personalities, and the fact that they are actaully TWO personalities, and not just one with two names.

So glad the tension worked on paper! It is very hard to write that and I often worry that things are dragging, or betting to explan-y...if you catch my drift. The dishes thing I had in mind for a long time, but the pistol thing just kinda hit me as I was writing it. I like it, so I'm glad you do to.

Wow, thank you again SO much for such a great review! I was trying hard to write such a sensitive topic with tact and so it's nice to hear I'm doing okay.

28th December 2011:
I absolutely adore you stories! I've read them all and I love them all :) Beautifully written.
Incredibly hard plot to write without it being too gruesome or crude, really. But it was fantastic- of course, horrifically sad.
Update soon!

Author's Response: Awww, thank you! It makes me so happy to know people like what I write!

This is an incredibly hard plot. That's why it hasn't been updated in ages. I'm working through my outline at the moment, trying to figure things out and get it cleaned up, then I will be back with more. But I'm so glad you think I've approached the topic with tact and such. Thank you!

This is a great story I hope you continue :)

Thanks so much for reading!

Review #8, by sbmcneil Shattered Perceptions

31st October 2011:
You are right that there are a lot of stories about the Dursleys going over the limit, but this is very original. I really like the idea of the twins rescuing him.

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you like it, and that it felt original to you, as I was trying very hard to make it that way.

And I love the twins, so that was sort of a given. Plus, there are very few stories that I can find that let Harry interact with the twins much on his own, and I wanted to do that.

Thanks again fore reading!

1917 Farmgirl: I don't know what happened to my previous reviews on this story but I want you to know that I wouldn't miss reviewing one of your magnificent stories, especilly this one. I'm going to reread then re-post my reviews to you. You'll see my reviews on this story soon. From what I remember, this was going to be a classic entry and it had me riveted. Keep up your gifted writing. PW

Author's Response: Awww. You are the best! I'm so, so flattered you would read it again and review all over! Thank you extremely much! I can't wait to read what you think for the second time!

23rd June 2011:
LOVE this!!! i come back and check everyday to see if theres another chapter. quick question... do you plan on continuing this story? i sure hope so, but i understand if you dont. :] THANK you for writing this!

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm very flattered you love it enough to check everyday! And I hate that you are always disappointed by my lack up updates.

To answer your question - yes, I will continue this story, but it might be a while before updates start coming. Real life has been incredibly busy lately and I just haven't had time for writing. I will get back to it, though, as I love it too much not to.

So, thank you for your review and your interest! It means a lot!

Are you going to write a continue?

Author's Response: Yes! Overwhelmingly yes! I've just been going through a very, very busy stretch of real life and haven't had time to write. It's summer now, though, so hopefully I'll be back soon.

Thanks for the review!

Ooh...PLEASE CONTINUE ASAP!!! : ) LOL. very good and very addicting!! now i'm going to go read healing : )

Author's Response: Thanks! And thanks for going off to read Healing as well! I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I don't have anything to update this with yet as real life sorta jumped on me lately, but I spent a lot of time in Dec. and Jan. outlining plots for this story so hopefully it gets back in the action soon.

Thanks again!

Review #13, by bmhallows Anger

1st March 2011:
I know when a story is good when I find myself fanfictioning it myself! Since I read this story a few days ago I keep thinking about it, I am intrigued where you are going to take it. In my head I like the idea that as they learn more about Harry they might learn more about Ron and how much he has supported his friend over the years. Also something about even though he needs lots of help and healing- respect for how well harry has coped all of these years. Your world has completely sucked me in!

Author's Response: Wow! Thanks for such a fun review! I'm honored that my story grabbed you so much you started thinking about possible plots yourself! And for the record, some of your musings aren't that far off from things I have planned.

Just to let you know, this story has a lot left to it. It's going to be long. And at the moment it has some plot holes I've been working through. It might be another month or so before you start seeing updates to this one, but I truly hope you'll keep reading once they start going up again.

Thanks for reading and reviewing!

this story us awsome! i want to no wat happens!! DO NOT ABANDON

Author's Response: Thank you! And no worries, it's not abandoned. The lack of updates right now are a combination of two things - my real life is insane right now, and this story is getting it's outline finessed. As soon as I can I'll be back to it, though.

Thanks for reading!

great story :)
loved the evil voldemort muggle uncle vernon had turned into and how molly's reaction was not silent or so but like a real mother keep the good job up!

are you going to update soon?

Author's Response: Thank you! Nice to see a new reader. Evil Vernon wasn't really that fun to write, but Mother Molly ALWAYS is. :)

I'm not exactly sure when the next update will be. I'm working out some bugs, but rest assured I will get it there as fast as I can.

20th December 2010:
YAY!! you stayed true to your promise!!! haha that wasn't too long to wait! i check back here everyday seeing if you've updated any of your stories yet, and every time you do it makes my day!!! haha well it was veeerry good, needless to say, especially that GREAT ending. woot woot! *lightbulb* hey! lets put those dang dursleys in azkaban!! :D that would make me happy. they deserve worse than death. >:)
couple more my life is average . c o m stories:

Today I read a post about someone who thinks their grandfather is Dumbledore. About a month ago, I found out that the guy who played Dumbledore in the first two Harry Potter movies was my grandmother's cousin. I knew I wasn't the only wizard in our family. MLIA.

Favorite thing about Christmas? Tackling the UPS guy and demanding he give me all his bubble wrap. I got it too. MLIA.

Today my friend and I were racing down the hall when we accidently walked into a wall and fell down, on the wall someone had put up a sign saying platform nine and three quarters. I guess we're not wizards. MLIA

Today, I read a MLIA that said "Today, there have been riots in England about university fees. One of the protester's signs read "Dobby died, and now this!" I now want to meet this person. MLIA" There was also a person there with a sign that said "Dumbledore wouldn't let this happen" I love England :) MLIA

Today in my AP Science class, my teacher stepped out of the room for about three minutes. By the time he was back, one of my classmates was duct-taped to his chair. Instead of getting angry at us, my teacher grabbed a piece of duct tape and put it over my classmate's mouth so he couldn't talk, and left him like that for the rest of the period. New favorite teacher? You bet! MLIA.

Today, I was texting the guy I like. I said, "I have an important question: Harry Potter or Twilight?" He said, "Harry Potter for sure!" Afterwards, we had a full conversation on how to crash the next twilight premiere with our wands and Harry Potter cloaks and all. I think Im in love. MLIA

Author's Response: *sighs* Well, at least I kept the promise once. I'm so so so sorry I've made you wait so long for more, and for this review response. I'm so glad you like my writing, though! It makes me extremely happy. :)

And all your funny little tid-bits of info totally made me smile! Thanks for sharing! I hope you'll come back and read more when I finally get around to posting.

Review #22, by eemmaa_w Anger

20th December 2010:
Omg I just came across this story now and I'm hooked!! I got down to the bottom ready to click on the next chapter and there wasn't one!! I've also read a lot of similiar stories with the whole snape thing, but I prefer yours over theirs any day. I love how you've included Fred and George. You captured everyones character really well and I'm very impressed!! Lots of people can't do this you have!! Update quickly please! :)

Author's Response: Wow, thanks! I'm so excited that you liked it, especially since it deals with such a sensitive topic. And I'm SO sorry I've left you hanging so long for more (and for this review response!) My real life has been so insane these last few years that I've had to let most of my fanfic related things slide for a while just to survive. I'm starting to dig my way out now, though, and so there should be more of this coming in the next few months.

I'm so happy you like how I've not gone the Snape route. Fred and George are just so much more fun to write (and I've never bought the whole Snape's loving concern for Harry fics anyway.)

Thank you again for such a great review! You've left me smiling!

Review #23, by Helen Anger

19th December 2010:
I honestly think this is amazing, normally these stories are badly written tales about Snape coming to the rescue and adopting Harry, which make no sense. This is a beautifully written, true account which shows how much the Weasley's love him.
Are you writing any more chapters or leaving it there?

Author's Response: I've read those stories that you mention and I'm so not a fan of Snape rescuing Harry. It doesn't work for me at all, so I went out of my way to make sure I didn't do that. It's nice to see that you liked my attempt.

I have many more chapters planned, I've just had a really, really busy year and my writing has had to take a back seat more than I'd like. Hopefully, I'm finally getting caught up and so look for new chapters in the next few months.

Thanks again for such a wonderful review.

Review #24, by seekers_destiny Anger

19th December 2010:
Again, a lot of things to like:
Ginny's understanding of why Harry was keeping secrets
Arthur being the only one who can stop Molly in her tracks
an emotionally unstable Fred putting fear in everyone's hearts
Remus Lupin's obvious concern for Harry
the Weasleys considering Harry one of their own
Ron realizing that losing his temper won't always be productive
Ron knowing what George was thinking and wanting in on it

At first I was confused by George's angry refusal to tell what he'd seen while he was in the kitchen. It wasn't until he finally did tell in the bedroom that it hit me. He was angry at being forced to relive what he had seen and just as angry that he hadn't seen this coming as Ron.

Still looking forward to more...

Author's Response: Yes, I know I'm only a month shy of being a year overdue on this response, and I'm SO sorry for that! Real life has been so crazy lately I just haven't had time for fanfiction - writing it, reading it, or responding to reviews. :( It's finally starting to clear up, however, and so hopefully I can get back to it soon.

I'm glad you liked this story! It's been intersting to write, given that it's really different than the other Harry Potter fics I've written. Much darker and more intense. And I'm glad you like how I've used the Weasleys. They are my favorite family, so I try to include them whenever I can.

And yes, you got what I was trying to get with George exactly. :) He didn't want to have to spell it out again, as it was horrible the first time.

There will be more! I promise. It might be a month or two more as I sort through my outline and get going again, but then I will be back.

Thanks for reading!

Review #25, by theelderwand Anger

19th December 2010:
Such an aptly named chapter...

"Anyone who tries to send that boy back to that house will have to go through me first," his mum vowed hotly.

and the chanting starts: MOL-LY! MOL-LY! MOL-LY!

"An emotionally unstable Fred? They might as well move into a fireworks factory and invite a pyro over for dinner!"

Amazed at how, even at a low, painful ebb in the tale, you still manage to inject a great one-liner like that and not lose the somber mood. Impressive.

As I read on, I really started to get steamed. Can't really put in to words how angry this is making me (the Dursleys, not your magnificent story). However, fortunately, I don't have to because you already did:

"Several heads nodded their understanding but no on spoke. Ron thought George looked like a ticking bomb, ready to go off at any moment, his mum was making no attempt to hide the small tears rolling down her cheeks, and the rest of them sitting around the worn, wooden table - and Ron included himself in that number - were too angry to express themselves in words that were usable in Molly Weasley's presence."

Magnificent prose there, just excellent, and, as I said, I share the sentiment.

Farmgirl, again, I can't recall how many times I've read this, but it still keeps my rapt attention. Hanging on every word, cringing in the right places, tearing up at others, and just getting ferociously angry as I go.

That final line, "I wanna know when we're leaving for Privet Drive and how we're gonna avoid Azkaban when we're done with whatever it is you're already planning."

I'm going too. Let's saddle up!


Author's Response: Yes, I know, it's almost a year old and WAY overdue.

Yes, I know, you told me to not worry about replying to your year-old reviews and just move on - but I can't! It's such a wonderful review and can't NOT respond!

Besides, always having this review, sitting unanswered in my "Unanswered Reviews" box would DRIVE ME NUTS! :)

So, on with the response...

I knew you'd like that Molly bit. Molly makes me think of a mama lion - you really, really shouldn't mess with her cubs, and Harry is one of those cubs in every way needed.

*Blushes at the one-liner praise* - I'm not sure it's so much a mark of being impressive as it is a mark of me not being able to stop my insanely weird sense of humor from leaking out at inappropriate times. But I'm glad you liked it. I think most fic, even the most serious ones, has room for a little humor.

Sorry to make you angry! Well, sorta - cause that means the story is working. Just sorry to leave you all riled up with nothing to read to see what happens next.

And don't worry, I'm sure I have a wonderful beta out there who will eventually help me figure out a way to make sure the Dursley's get what's coming to them in a way that isn't illegal. LOL

Thanks so much for reading - a million times as I tried to work this chapter out. You know how "holey" my plot for this is at the moment, but when other projects in my life settle down a bit (probably in the new year) and I can sit down and really work on fic again, I'm gonna pull that outline out and work through those holes. Hopefully, you'll still remember the story enough to want to read it by that point, LOL.

Thanks so mucy for your help! Couldn't have done this without you!
