after reading all 48 chapters of this amazing story the first thing that came to my head was, "now it is starting to get interesting". Don't get me wrong, the story thus far was by far the best and most well written piece of fanfiction i have ever read, but after ending with Ron finally realizing how Hermione felt, and Harry and Ginny starting to get closer, and the actual school year starting i just can't wait to find out what happens next, I am not sure how long it has been since you have updated since i recently found this story, but PLEASE! YOU HAVE TO CONTINUE! :P seriously though, you are extremely talented, and i am definatly going to be constantly checking back here to see if there is a chapter 49 or above

it kills me that this story hasn't been updated in over a year. it's glorious, amazing, and one of the most amazing things i've ever read. i love the characters, they're so believable and that's what makes this story so great. i know it's probably too late. but if only it wasn't. i do so much wish there was more.

PLEASE FINISH THIS STORY!!!!!Its a crying shame there hasnt been a new chapter added. You are a brilliant writer, and I have been waiting patiently since August '06 for an update in this gripping story!! (The last time I saw a new chapter added at checkmated) Came to quidditchpitch hoping you continued the story here, but I see you haven't. Could you atleast post SOMETHING as to why you haven't or can't continue the story?? I'm dying here!!

*pumps fists into the air in victory*
I just finished reading all 48 chapters that you have posted here and I have to say HOLY CRAP YOU ARE AMAZING!!!!
Everything is just so there. I don't know how you manage it, but you have amazing control with your stories. I read an earlier author's note where you mentioned that some of the angst was too drawn out, and I have to agree, BUT that's just me. As I said, you just have so much control and ability to really present an emotion or a scene or a character fully before moving on and for me it just makes everything that happens thereafter that much more poignant. I don't know if that made sense, but I hope it did because it's my favorite and most frustrating thing about your writing; I want it now but I know it'll be worth the wait. Please understand and not be offended :)
Other than that, I love love love your Ron! He's still unbearably insecure but he just so amazing inspite of it! Maybe it's just because I can understand where his inabiliy to see the good things in himself comes from, but he's very relatable and lovable for me. It wasn't until college that I realized everyone is just as human as me and I'm just as capable as them. It's a hard life you've constructed for Ron and if you didn't make the journey equally rocky I'd be let down. Yet again, you show amazing committment and control and for that I can only thank you!
After reading your entire fic thus far in a few days I don't know how I'm going to be able to make it until the next update. I can't wait! It'll be brilliant!
Thank you for writing this!

I've been enthralled with 48 chapters and haven't written a single thank you or gushing I-love-this-more-than-words-can-tell feedback note. NEVER have I enjoyed an author-created character like I have Adrianna. And, I admit when I first started the story I almost stopped because I was all, she's AMERICAN? She's RELATED? She's good at EVERYTHING? Yuck. I'm SO thankful that I perservered.
Your Ron/Hermione is delicious. They're why I read HP fanfic in the first place. I adore Ron. Just thinking about how you've written him is making me smile right now.
And your Harry/Ginny - I admit here and now that I've NEVER thought much of Ginny, and when Harry kissed her in HBP I really didn't get it. Your Ginny ROCKS! She's SO worthy of Harry and if I were a teenage boy, I'd be all over her as well. Or, maybe I wouldn't. I think it's more accurate that if I were once again a teenage girl I'd want to be your Ginny. She's nobody's fool.
Thanks most of all for the Adrianna, Bill, Charlie triangle thing which I am still hoping will becomed even more clear. It's so incredibly woven, so wonderfully played out, so beautifully crafted that I do find myself thinking more about them than our trio. How much would I pay for an NC-17 with the three of them? I'm not rich, but I'd be willing to turn to a life of crime.
I'm assuming since we've only just begun the school year, and that Adrianna is going to stay until Harry's out of danger, that chapter 48 is only a third into the actual length of the story. I'm giddy.
May your muse be kind. To both of us.
