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.
