Bio:

Middle-aged, married with grown kids and a very hectic career.  I changed jobs about a year ago after working in the same place for 30 years, but it was a good change, even if it is keeping me busy beyond belief.  I am completely addicted to all things Harry Potter, particularly the dark-haired Brit who brought him to life in film.

Just a word to those who read my fics ... I have recently begun archiving my fics at AO3 in addition to here for the convenience of those who like to read on eReaders or via Kindle app on their cell phone (like I do).  They can be found under the user name HPTrio there.

You know, I hadn't really expected to care for this story because I find the whole mpreg concept just a bit "weird" to say the least, but it was really good.  Probably the best part of the whole thing was that it was so entirely plausible ... I could easily see Draco pushing Harry away, and Narcissa running to him for help.  I like that they had a happy ending, too!  Very nicely done.

Author's Response: Thanks so much!  I was a bit wary of the concept myself, and really wanted to see if I could write something wherein it was plausible.  I'm so glad to know that I succeeded!

Do you have any of this posted elsewhere?  I thought it seemed awfully familiar at the beginning with the ghost-version of Ron keeping Harry company, but that's the only part that seems familiar.

I read straight through the first 10 chapters (and lost a good bit of sleep in the process) because I was hanging on every word and just couldn't stop myself.  You actually have a really gripping plot going on along with all the lovely sexual tension, and have an original character in Maggie that a reader can't help but love.

I actually think Hermione is very IN CHARACTER in the fierceness of her reaction to everything.  While it is in many ways unthinkable that she could ever turn on Harry & Ron, we've seen glimpses in canon of her ability to be nasty when she feels the situation warrants (she set a professor's robes on fire in the very first book, cursed a parchment to disfigure anyone who crossed the DA in OoTP, had Ron attacked by canaries in HBP).  So the only real stretch here for me is whether if, in this situation, she would sacrifice the trio's bond of friendship when it became clear Ron preferred Harry physically.

Admittedly, I'm such a die-hard fan of the trio, I hate that Harry & Hermione didn't find solace in each other after Ron's death, and I hate it even more than Ron is dead,  But you've more than made up for the lack of my preferred pairings with the heat you're writing into the Draco/Harry dynamic.

This last chapter absolutely sizzles, and I'm trusting that you'll see it through to the ultimate conclusion with just as much heat!



Author's Response: I have posted this, actually.  At The Hex Files, and my LJ.  And I'm so glad that you're enjoying it.  You can't know how much I appreciate your take on Hermione; I didn't find her OOC either, but boy, I've sure taken a lot of heat for it, particularly from folks who love the trio.  So your comments are particularly gratifying.  Thanks so, so much!

Very well written and sexy, but even more importantly here, I think, is that it is a beautifully touching piece ... once that could easily serve as a "missing moment" in OoTP.  Honestly, for poor Sirius' sake, I hope it happened just like that!

Overall, I was really enjoying your story, until I got to the end.  The summary page says it's completed, but I can't imagine that you'd actually leave it where you stopped.  It's not actually finished, is it?  There is real potential here to turn it into so much more, and so much "unfinished business" left behind.

Author's Response: It IS finished, but there are 13 more chapters to this. Just waiting for the beta team to hurry back to me. Don't worry. It's not finished on this site yet.

Reviewer: TheTrioMakesMeHot Signed
Date: 03/24/2008 Title: Chapter 1: Acknowledgment

I really enjoyed your first chapter.  The pretext of practicing on one another when neither is in a relationship with anyone else, and the awkwardness of reading the book, facing embarrassing questions and muddling through their first times was all very sweet.

Your writing is fine in your second chapter, but I have to say the content was a bit disturbing in that the whole idea of Harry or Hermione planning in advance to be unfaithful to their respective partners is so unlike either of them.  Harry, in particular, is known for sacrificing himself and his own needs for the good of others. He would NEVER do that to Ron. 

At best, I might believe a scenario where Harry & Hermione succumb to their mutual attraction during extenuating circumstances, thereby cheating on their respective partners, but I think the guilt afterward would eat them alive.

I could possibly see this working with other characters ... perhaps Pansy and Seamus could sleep together before pursuing Draco and Lavender, and then wanting to keep a little something going in the background, but I just can't buy into the idea for Harry and Hermione.

Not sure how I missed this when you posted it, but I'm glad you've added something so I could find it now.  So far it seems very in-character for all of them and that always makes for a good read in my book!

Author's Response: Thanks so much.  It's been a while since I thought about this story, but I was more than happy to for Alaana. :)

Well ... I have attempted to review this chapter three different times on two different computers that were about 5 miles apart and operating off two unrelated ISPs.  I was trying to cut/paste a few of my favorite lines from the chapter, and every time I tried, the computer locked up and kicked me out of the internet.  Weird.

So this time I've come directly to the review screen without even looking at the chapter.  Messes up my review plan, but I did at least want to say I love what you did with this!  I loved Draco's line about it always being about Harry, and his comment towards the end about his plans for the next 10 minutes.

Really great job!



Author's Response: Thanks for reading and your perseverance to leave a comment:)  This story was a lot of work to try and capture what Draco was going through and not become melodramatic.  This story has seemed to touch a lot of people and it makes me feel good to hear from people about it.

Loved this installment too, although I will admit I'd expected it would be set in France and we'd get to see the encounter with the elder Malfoys.

Author's Response: Thanks.  Alaana asked for something set in between the end of the main story and the epilogue.  She wanted to see something of their travels when Draco was finding himself, so I decided upon Venice :)

Damn ... isn't it morning yet?  (Err ... that's a subtle hint that you really should write the morning after sequel).

You know it's odd ... I know Harry is a normal teenage boy in many ways (well, if you don't count the fact he's a fictional character), but I seldom think of him wanking to thoughts of so many different people during a single session.



Author's Response: No, he probably wouldn't, but it was a challenge :)  He'd probably pick one, or maybe two, and, um, go from there.

Glad you liked it, though!

I know I'm "dating" myself by admitting this, but I remember when that song was released, and of course back then, "streaking" seemed a popular thing to do at major events.

That was an awfully cute story ... wish I could've been there to watch!
