I stumbled on this story by accident and just finished a marathon session reading it ( disturbed only by the necessity of going to work, dammit) only to discover that you're not done yet! Argh!
What can I say? This fic is AMAZING, and you and your betas go on my very short list of fantastic writers. And that's what I have to say. Brilliant.

I love this story! I completely love the way to give Harry, Ron, Hermione and Ginny's POV. You've captured me I can't stop reading. I've been meaning to review for a dozen chapters at least, but I keep clicking to the next chapter because I can't wait to find out what happens next.
You do a great job keeping the characters "in character" they react the way they should. They talk the way they should. (Okay, Molly's being a little hands off--but that's okay) Dialogue is great, it flows.
thanks for sharing such a great story.

This review is long over due considering I read this chapter over a month ago, but i'm selfish and I want an update so here it goes.
I'm glad someone finally gave Ron something (other than a Prefects badge) for him to feel good about that he actually deserved for good reason. You really should keep going with this story, I love it, especially the bit about the fire fruit. That was a crafty way to get Harry and Ginny together that I have not read before. I really want to see what happens with all of the couples so please update, I'm getting board.

I'm the first reviewer in 2008, and like many WIP's I've read, i assume you've abandoned this story. Well, the work you put in and the results you achieved are worth it, even if you can't finish it. Telling this story from the many multiple points of view must have been exhausting, and so painstaking, but you made it a fun ride for us all.
I was most entertained, out of all of it, by mad, spiteful Ginny around chapter 40 or so when they were in Diagon Alley. All of her snippy comments were hysterical! I loved all the heart to heart talks between so many of the characters. Don't we all wish we had relationships & mentors like this story has? All best wishes from an admiring fan.

You do have this knack for exposing to myself that I'm a glutton for punishment. I'm now hopeless addicted to this story, utterly dependent upon you to give me some closure.
Too many things I love to do it justice. Just here, in "Expectations," the wonderful nuances in every character, the magnificent talk between Adrianna & Ron (love RON everywhere in the story, just ready to scream at his--well, AND Hermione's--excruciating insecurity & stupidity); JKR owes you for such a beautiful expansion on his character. So many moments, lines, situations. The paperwork that arrives for Adrianna because she apparently killed a Death Eater--how sly. Flame Fruit--where can this be obtained?
But, I beg of you--don't leave us twisting in the wind. Can we--walk your dog? Cook your dinner? Just, please, don't abandon either of these wonderful stories. Yes. I'm selfish, and have no room to talk when I'm getting so little writing done. But we're way out from shore, here; bring us back in.
