Summary: Once a month the men in Hermione's life become 'Dicks'. Not everything in the future is perfect. (Author's note: This story is set post Voldemort, and assumes that the final battle left the Trio with a strong sense of empathy between them.)

You keep doing this to me!  I think a story is finished, and you add something marvelous. 

I loved Harry here, especially him seeing the tea towel.  Will be looking for the next installment

This was really amusing.  I was wondering what the reason for the Deathday party was, it seemed very odd, but you brought it around in the end.  Well done.

I loved the part when the ghost says, "I say, is that a brain you have there?"  I think that was pure genius. (and a bit crack-y, if you don't mind me saying).  I also loved how they forgot that the brain didn't have a mouth, and how Harry forgot the cup.

Cute story



Author's Response: Yeah, thanks a lot for that. I had a lot of fun with Nick's Deathday party. And yeah, everything had a purpose in the end. Thanks so much for reading!

Just give us a kiss and call it even - I may make this my motto from now on...I'll definitely use it on my dh soon.

Harry’s stomach did a Wronski Feint - Really liked the imagery here. The whole scene is lovely, really believable for them to be together for so long, then easily slip into more.  Good job

 



Author's Response:

Hee - Ron was being so flirty, hoping that Harry would make a move. I thought is was cute, I'm glad you liked it.

I'm so bad about using Quidditch metaphors, I just can't help myself. heh.

 

They do belong together. ;)

Too cute, I like how Hermoine was in on it, and how Harry would never clue into the fact she did it on purpose.

But I must tell you, while reading about this, I was distracted by something that happened to me, in a similar cirumstance.  It was around 4 in the morning, and I had just finished feeding my baby, when I went in the washroom to get a drink of water.  I left the lights off, and did just what Ginny did, got the glass of water by instinct, not by looking.  Anyway, I gulped down half the glass, and lo and behold, there was  a HUGE bug in the glass!  I spit it out into the sink, turned on the lights and had to stifle my scream at the sight of the bug in the sink!

To this day, I can still feel the stupid, hairy bug in my mouth.

 



Author's Response: Thanks for the nice review.  I must say that would have been very unpleasant to have a bug in the glass of water -- yuch!!  Thanks again.

Wow.  What an unexpected gem of a story. At first, I was very uncomfortable with the darkness of the piece, especally how dark Harry had become, but as I read on, it became more and more believable, and understandable. 

The interactions between the two were captivating, and I loved the exploration of Draco's pain reactions. And the last intimate scene was hypnotising. I'm really glad you posted this

Well done, loved them looking back at their youth, but happy with their middle age. And what a birthday presen Harry got this year! How fun

I loved the human insights you weave into this story. Especially:“I. Love. You.” Sometimes it’s whispered, sometimes it’s yelled. Sometimes it’s mumbled into a warm body and other times it said to a wall. Every time though it’s said with feeling, and every time Seamus says it back.

It’s not a trump card and it doesn’t excuse their behavior. It’s not a cure-all and it doesn’t make their problems go away. It’s never easy and it’s anything but a guarantee.
This is such a true observation about long term relationships, no matter who you are referring to.  I also like that Seamus has his own bitter memories about the war. Often, the peripherial characters' reactions to the war are ignored in fandom.

Good job

It’s private, you know- Oh my, poor Harry. Do you think Hermoine will remember her talk at all, in the morning?

Very nicely written, funny, cute and sweet all at the same time



Author's Response: Why thank you! I'm so glad you 'got' it. Heh. I bet Hermione would remember but just play it off cool.

What an interesting perspective.  I like how he (she) is uncomfortable at the end, but not judgemental.  Would like to know more about this person, but this does stand on it's own.

Author's Response: Thanks.  This is an idea that I don't think will be developed further, but I won't rule it out.

I have to say, it was an unexpected, but very cool, ending.  Loved Ginny's response; really, really looking forward to the next bit. 

Oh, and by the way, the smut is very hot!



Author's Response:

I really thought everyone would be expecting Harry & Ron to show up, but I'm glad I'm catching you by surprise.  I've always thought the unexpected makes for better reading.  And I'm glad you're liking the smutty part, since that's the main emphasis of my story anyway.  I know I've enjoyed writing it!  Thanks so much for your comments!

Yes, it was a much tamer chapter than we are used to, but it is moving the story along...will be looking for the next chapter



Author's Response:

I wondered where Ron had gotten off to!  I'm going to have to keep a better eye on him if I'm going to keep him around to play out his part in this story, aren't I?

Well, you can keep him a day or two I suppose, then I'm really going to have to borrow him back for the next chapter!

Thanks for reading, and for your comments!

Date: 01/20/2007 Title: Chapter 8: Ok, So Maybe My Dad Did Strut

Excellent chapter. I loved two lines the most: I always thought it would be nice to learn more about Muggles...it is a pet peeve of mine when Ron is really, really prejudiced against Muggle things, and yet dates Hermoine...

And the second line: OK, so maybe my Dad did strut...It is a nice reference to cannon, and a slight way of showing Harry is growing up.



Author's Response:

Thanks!  And thanks for letting me borrow Ron back for a bit!!!

The strutting bit just hit me as I was writing about Harry's task ... I could almost hear Snape's sultry voice in my head taunting Harry in POA, and Harry's cocky reply that his Dad didn't strut ... it just BEGGED me to work it into my story! 

Thanks so much for reading and reviewing!
