i realy like this story alot defintely an interesting take on the whole thing cant wait to read more! update soon! Report Review
We've already discussed, but I just wanted to say I think it reads much better with the stuff about Fred at the begining. It's normal for grief to be the natural response so it had to be in there somewhere. Re-reading it was as good as the first time and I can't wait for more. Report Review
I like you're story alot. I was reading another author who must be your friend or something becayse she recommended your story at the end of one of her chapters. Although your is completely different, its definitely more like what I like to read on here but your frineds story grabbed my attnetion because it was so good. Based on what you worte i'm guessing that Lily is related to Snape somehow, his little sister? I've always liked the Ginny and Harry pairing, and I'm glad you stuck to it. I can't wait to read more, update soon.Author's Response: Hello!
Great to have a new reviewer!
I really encourage you to keep reading Serena's story and to check out her first installment if you haven't (The Ring of Mykele.) She is an excellent author and I have loved her stories even though they are not my normal genre either.
Before reading her I hated any thoughts of H/Hr or G/M but she sucks you in.
I will apologize for taking a while in between these chapters. I hit a writers block with Chapter 4 but I'm nearly finished. You are onto something with Snape but I won't say more.
Thanks again for reading and please check back early next week for a new chapter. Report Review
So I was rereading and got to the end and was sad there wasn't more...until I remembered I still have a copy of chapter 3 and went and reread that too! Still loving it! And still waiting for chapter 4. I'm back to being pushy. Glad to see you've gotten more reviews, I giggled when that one person guessed Lily had something to do with Narcissa.
By the way, I don't think we discussed this, but your answer may help me too. When they go back to school, what are your plans for the children of the death eaters? Will they abandon Hogwarts all together or do they stay and stand their ground? In my story, most are already known or suspected and in yours it's after the war so they'd all be known. I would think if they were in school, the other students would look down on them, harass them. As I get closer to them being at school in my story, I'm trying to figure out just what role they will play as protagonists, but I was also curious to see what you planned, considering yours does take place after DH. What do you think?Author's Response: It has been a while I know. I'm sorry I never responded to this review until now.
I haven't given a whole lot of thought to what to do with the DE children but to make it a little simpler I was going to start off with not having a lot of them return. Homeschooled. Those that do return will obviously have something to prove. We'll see how it works, I haven't planned that far ahead.
I promise (and I know I've said this before,) to have chapter 4 submitted by the end of this week. Report Review
so what would they do take a long vacation or finish school.Author's Response: I assume you are asking about the timing of all of this and when exactly it is happening.
From what I gathered in the books it seemed like it was near the end of the school year when the battle took place. My best guess is that they went to Gringotts in the beginning of May and so the battle was held shortly after. This would have left only a few short weeks of the school year left and I am presuming that most students were allowed to return home after it was all over.
I think that it would be reasonable to allow this given the circumstances.
So yes they will have the rest of summer off before returning in September again.
Thank you so much for reviewing. Keep your eye out for chapter 3, its being validated. Report Review
the story so far has been great. I wonder who her father was. I mean i got the idea that the mother is narcissa but i could be wrong.Author's Response: First of all, thank you for reviewing!
I am a very new writer and appreciate any and all feedback.
I don't want to give anything away but I will tell you that you are wrong about Narcissa. There are a few good clues in the chapter to help you guess but they are tricky to find.
I hope you will continue to read, Chapter 3 is in validation and I am really working to get 4 in before the Holiday closure.
Happy Reading :) Report Review
Now that's out of the way, it's still as brilliant as when I first read it. I can't wait to see how everyone else responds! I think your story is going to be very popular very soon. My next chapter is posted and when it shows up, there will be a nice little recommendation over here to you, keep writing, I'm still waiting to read chapter 4. I'm halfway through 19, so maybe we'll finish at the same time and trade chapters to read! See you next chapter and on the forums! Good luck with the story!Author's Response: Thanks!
As always a pleasure to hear from you. I am hoping to get some more reviews but still plan on submitting chapter 2 tonight. Chapter 4 is moving along slowly unfortunately and I was out of town Friday and Saturday at a conference so nothing got done.
Hope all is well, talk to you soon. Report Review
