You already know I love this story best of all you've done, even though I told you parts of it should have come with tissue warnings. I never expected to need a tissue warning for an Author's Note, but somehow you always manage to surprise me ... and I think our friendship was meant to be!
Author's Response: Awe, you know I love ya! Thank you so much for all the help you've given me in this story and everything else you've done. And sorry if I made you cry....:-( LOL

Short review ahead:
Fantastic chapter! They're lovemaking... the morning after... Mrs. Weasley... everything was perfect in this chapter. Nothing less than I expect. Not to mention that I almost, I said almost, cried with the sweetest scene I've ever read in all my life. Flowers, hugs, all those people... *dreams*
You have a unique talent to write R/Hr, you know... it doesn't matter if it's the most romantic scene or the hottest smut... and I'm quite proud to have introduced ana to your stories! ^^'
Congratulations Karen, you deserve it!
And DH is coming... blimey, I'm getting mad... Anyway, have fun reading the last part of this HP world!
See ya! and once again... congrats!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review. I am happy that you enjoyed my story. I love writing R/Hr they are such a dynamic couple! And yes, DH is coming...I don't know what I will do until I get my hand on it!

Oh that was just perfect!
I've stopped myself from reading 4 Days of Fantasy because I wanted to finish this first and now I'm so excited to read it!
It was truly lovely and first time sex was endearingly realistic.
You really do have a gift with words and I wish you all the best in your future endeavors.
Author's Response: Thank you so much. I will take all the well wishes I can get! I have not read Four Days in a while...maybe I will reread it and see if I still love it! LOL.

karen, ive been reading your stories since last week (i take a bit longer than normal, 'cause english isnt my mother tongue), and i gotta tell ya, woman: its bloody fantastic! cant really wait to read the end of it, of course. keep writing and ill keep reading! cheers!
Author's Response: Thank you for the review! I think you do very well for English not to be your native tongue, so good for you! I will certainly keep writing and hopefully, the next thing you will be reading of mine will be on said at Barnes and Noble...or any book store for that matter. Don't worry, I will give all my Potter fans a discount...well if my publisher lets me! LOL!

I knew Daphne would return >.< Poor girl, she seems so desperate to belong. Makes me wonder how controlling her father is. Anyway, a beautiful chapter! I love how they both think the other's too perfect for themselves.
Author's Response: Thank you for the reivew. I'm so glad you liked it. I may bring Daphne back in a later story...whenever I return to fan fiction. I feel like there is more to her that I can develope, so who knows.

Well, it's official: I hate Dixon. And I don't know why Hermione didn't hexed her 'till death...(sorry...) and Daphne as well... ¬¬'
Anyway, I liked the last part... Hermione opening herself up to Ron was amazing, saying in her own way how much she loves him... it was beautiful! *-*
Great chapter... now it's time to wait!
See ya! o/
Author's Response: Thank you for the review! I sorta feel sorry for Daphne, she is just too insecure to make wise decisions but I'm glad you liked it anyway!

Oh my goodness, I just have to say that I'm enjoying this story so very much and I'm really looking forward to the next chapter. The way you have captured Ron and Hermione is perfect, so in character. Your Ron is delicious. and yay for Hermione for fighting for her man! I'm loving it all.
Author's Response: Thank you for the review. I love Ron and think he is a bit more mature than what some have written him in post Hogwarts fic's so I'm glad you like my version of him.

Boy I would not like to be in that Dixons shoes, does the plonker not know this is Hermione Granger member of the golden trio, the one that was with the destroyer of Voldemort. How could she be thick enough to not take Harry's previous warning serious.
Excellent chapter and I now eagerly await the next one.
Author's Response: Thank you for the review. I think Dixon, along with probably a lot of people that were not at the final battle would assume that Ron and Hermione were simply there and didn't do much...maybe that will be true when we get to the 7th book, but for now, I think that's probably what Dixon thought, at least that's what I wanted her to think. I'm glad you liked it!

Great story, plenty of passion in the love scenes, Oh I would just like to say that girls in Brittain are concidered mature enough for sex if they so desire, in fact unlike in some countries they are considered as adults in every thing but the electoral vote. Apart from that slight error and the usual crickets (dont hear them over here) this is one heck of a tale. 9/10
Thanks for the review! I did mention in another review that the legal age for consent is 16 in the UK even if its not enforced and you don't hear crickets? Not even in the country? Well that's just aweful! LOL. Just kidding, I couldn't imagine that you wouldn't have crickets so i that's all the errors I have well, then I'll take it!

Hi Karen! o/
First, I was nearly going insane to read this chapter... Ok, it's not like that, but I was thinking about it everyday... =D
“Actually, although scientists still don’t quite understand it, thunder is a shockwave caused by the rapid heating and expansion of the air surrounding and within a bolt of lightning. The bolt heats the air and rapidly expands it. This causes an almost explosive reaction, which is known as thunder,” Hermione replied to a gaping Ron. -- Thanks Hermione for being here all the way. This was fantastic, you know. I was amazed with this particular part because it's so Hermione-like. ^^'
“I love you,” he nearly whimpered with his lips pressed to her ear, and a death grip around her waist. She could feel him trembling as her head whipped around to look him in the eyes. You must look a person in the eyes when you say this, Hermione thought.
“Say it again,” she demanded quietly, as the artificial storm continued to rage and the music played softly.
“I love you,” Ron repeated without flinching or breaking eye contact. Hermione swallowed thickly, and fought the tears that were threatening to overtake her.
“I love you,” she gave, and Ron let go of a breath, then nearly fell into a kiss. -- Oh, I really loved this declaration. So sweet! Only Ron could do it... *-*
“You know what I’m talking about. He belongs to me!” -- YES! That's our girl! o/ Possessive and passionate!!!
Well, all this just to say that I really enjoy reading the way you write R/Hr because is so light and strong at the same time. I think you have a special way to write them as a couple and I love it! Take this as a serious and total honest coment. I really appreciate this serie!
See ya! 'Cause I can't wait for more... hehehehe... just joking! XD
Author's Response: Thank you so much for this "enormous" review! I have to say that this chapter has been the most quote chapter of the entire story thus far. I wonder why...I'm not complaining at all...just curious. I love it all, so quote all you like! Thanks again.
