Bio:
I'm a policy wonk in my late 30's and an obsessed HP fan. I've been reading fan fic for a few years and have recently started to try my hand at writing it.  My favorite ships to read are the basic canon ships, plus Harry/Ron and Trio. I'll also read any other ship that's well written, including Harry/Draco.  But my favorite ships to write are any that my plot bunny insists on.  And of course I MUST listen to the bunny or he will gnaw on my computer cables and pee on my keyboard.

I like it. I'm only recently warming to the idea of H/D, and it's fics like this that make it seem possible. Very in character too!

"For her lover, bestfriend and savior."  Awww.  I love Arthur/Molly stories!  This was very sweet. I love the idea that couples can still be happy together and romatic so long after getting married.

Thank you so much for your kind words.

This is so well done.  I love your perspective on how Remus's life might have been back then when he'd lost everything.  And your flashbacks to his time with James, Lilly and Harry are very sweet.  I look forward to reading more and seeing where you take this!

I'm still loving this story. I was a bit disappointed in chaper 5 because the part where your story converges with Prisoner of Azkaban went so quickly - I'd been looking forward to reading about Remus's experiences in meeting Harry again, interacting with him, and in meeting up with Sirius again.  You seemed to rush through it so quickly, and I wondered why we didn't get more of Remus's reaction to seeing Sirius's name on the map, his reaction to seeing him again, his realization about his innocence, etc.  But Chapter 6 got more into his feelings about Sirius and his reactions to his reappearance, and we finally got to see their reunion, delayed as it was, so I'm happy.  I look forward to more!

Oops, I just reread my last review, and I realized how negative it sounded. I meant to say that although I had hoped for more of that part of the story, I could see from the next chapter why you didn't put that in there. And I'm really enjoying the story and look forward to the next chapter!

I remember this from LJ and just had to read it again. I love the smut and love the ending even more. Very sweet and angsty (but more sweet).

Author's Response: Thanks buckets. Most of my writing I work at over a long time; this one just came to me and poured itself out over the keyboard.

Ah, our favorite couple. Still bickering, still being unreasonable. That's why we love them! You're doing a nice job of capturing their way of interacting with each other, and it's fun to see the thoughts behind what they do and say. It's like they're always on completely different wavelengths, and it's a wonder they ever get together (in fan fic at least - we'll see what JKR has to say about it!). I look forward to seeing where this goes!

Thank you for the comments, they're much appreciated. Do keep reading, it gets exciting!
 Thanks again :D

Awwww. That is so sweet and so sad!

"His stars just manage to glow even when the Sun is out, and with that hair, he carries the Sun with him, anyway." - so sweet and beautiful.

"Hermione brushed the fringe back from Ron’s forehead, and I felt anger and jealously flare up in me, and heard a voice that screamed, “MINE!” ..... I am afraid that one day, he will turn to Hermione and brush back a strand of her hair in return." -- the unrequited love and the fear is so sad.

Very nicely done.

Author's Response:

thank you very much! this was a difficult prompt for me because i hate seeing the boys parted in any way. i also hated seeing hary just sort of left in the lurch, as it was. but sometimes you just have to let the muse take you where she wants.

thanks again for such wonderful comments!  :D

This is a fun one. It shows why he was with Lavender, and how he felt during the early days of their relationhip.

"She was passionate beyond his wildest dreams, and Ron kissed her fiercely to absorb that passion."

Ron is a passionate guy and I think he responds the passion in Hermione, so it's interesting to see him seeking that in a substitute.

Author's Response: Thanks so much for reading and taking the time to review:D  I'm glad you liked it. I was trying to explore what it was about Lavender that attracted Ron in the first place, before she started to get smothering.

Fun story!  I loved seeing a redeemed Draco, an on-the-prowl Harry and Ron, and a loosened up Hermione.  Nice take on how she and Draco go through their changes of heart, find common ground and fall in love.

Date: 03/01/2007 Title: Chapter 1: Knowing When to Accept Help

This I an interesting fic so far. I like stories that have the POV of minor characters like Angelina – providing another view into our favorite main characters and their storyline. And I like that you addressed the racial issues and prejudices in Britain and the wizarding world.  I’m curious to see where the slash comes in.

Author's Response: Thanks for taking the time to read and review this. I really enjoy exploring the POVs of minor characters like Angelina. It helps that I've got years worth of background on her character from when I was massively involved in Role Playing. I do want to address some of the predjudices using her character and this is just really an intro into this story. Thanks again. I'll be updating with the next chapter today.

Awwww. I'm so glad you updated and finished the story! I loved the part about the twins torturing Harry. And the knickers. And the resolution between them was very sweet. I like the details about her hair - something that's only barely touched on in canon, and adds a touch of reality to the story (don't all women have issues with their hair???). And the slash is George/Lee! Great addition.

Ooh, interesting premise.  I'm wondering how Dudley met Millie and how he got over his prejudices to marry her. Looking forward to the next chapter!

Author's Response: I've got several ideas for an expanded story but very little time to write them I'm afraid.  I'd planned this as pretty much a one shot but if I get the time I might expand a bit, if not on this story then on the universe that it's in.

Interesting take on a character that never seems to find his way into fics.  And poor Lavender needs someone to cheer her up after being dumped by Ron!  Nice story!
