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.

Wow, what a wonderful, beautiful story.  Lovely characterizations of the boys, and of their relationship with Hermione.  Poor Neville....
As usual, you give beautiful attention to detail and create wonderful imagery.  Lovely!

Author's Response: Many thanks for your kind words! I did feel badly for Hermione and Neville, but tragedy is unfortunately an element of life at times. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed it and the imagery. Thank you so much for reading and letting me know your thoughts!

Breathing Through by mapleandmahogany, Quizzical Rated: MT - Mature Themes starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 27]
Summary: Ron held them both, as best he could around her expanded frame, pulling Harry close to Hermione's body. Ron whispered words of support onto her neck, placing kisses behind her earlobe. She arched her head back, letting herself drown in their touch.

This is truly a wonderful story. I ditto Leviathan on this one.  I love seeing the trio's relationship, plus the three diads interactiing in their own way. I've never been through or witnessed childbirth, but I can see this as a truly realistic portrayal of all of its pain, pleasure, fear and utter joy.  And seeing Harry's wonder and awe was just beautiful.  

Author's Response:

Your comments have meant a lot to us! We both put a considerable amount of time and care into the dynamic of the Trio's feelings and reactions here, so we are glad that we were able to put that into words and onto 'paper.' There is a lot of truth in this portrayal of birth, as much as there can be from a limited POV.

Funny how its Hermione giving birth, but so much attention is paid to Harry, isn't it? ;)  ~M and Q

Hee hee.  Given your username and previous stories, I thought this was a true trio story, and was wondering what the situation was -- was this their first time and Ron just didn't want to be around?  Were the actually going behind his back but maybe all get together at some point?  I figured something was up.  And it's hilarious, and kinda sexy, that they were both turned on by something that is normally as far from sexy as possible. And Ron's reaction was great!  Nice job.


Author's Response:

Thank you!  My goal was to mislead, but I must say I'm now at least thinking about where else this could lead.  If I keep writing on it, you might be on the right track after all.

Oh, Minnie, this is beautiful!  I love how you captured what a young, smitten, foolish Dumbledore would have been like, and the sexual side of JRK's depiction of how his obsession with GG led to his sister's death. I can just imagine the guilt, which Harry saw when Dumbledore drank the potion in the cave.  And I love Ariana's ribbon in his hair when he went to defeat him.  And how he defeated Gellert with expelliarmus (!), forgiveness and love.  And that they finally got to be together in the end!  There is so much emotional depth to be explored with the DD/GG revelation and I'm SO looking forward to more stories like this!

Author's Response: Oh wow! I'm totally loving you right now! *mwah* I had this fanged plot bunny that would not die when I heard of Albus and his tragic lovestory. How awful must it had been for him to face the man he loved and be the one to defeat him. It's obvious that he couldn't destroy him completely, but to take that love and have it locked away, never to be re-experienced was so tragic, I had to find a way to bring them back together. I'm so glad you enjoyed it and THANK YOU for that amazing review!

Wow, that was hot.  I love dom Harry, love the way he punished Draco for his past sins, then forgave him and gave him what he needed. I love how you spun the D/S relationship, Draco's desires, Harry's reactions. I can just picture Harry sitting under his invisibility cloak watching Draco in his room, at first shocked at Draco's "interests", but then figuring it out and deciding how to take charge.  Go Harry!  

 

Very well done!

I love, love, love this!  I love Ron’s glumping, all cinnamonny and gingery and starkers, and Harry, all shirtless and rumple-haired, and both all boyish but still sexy. And sooo childish and Harry and Ronish. This is as close to Harry/Ron love as one can get in a het H/G R/Hr fic, which is probably why I love it!  *Sigh*

Author's Response: *giggles* I'm so glad. I just tossed in all of my own kinks. Even in my OBHWF fic, they are half-naked and ignoring their girls! :P

I really like this story. I like seeing this alternate universe through Harry's eyes, his longing for that life and realization that he can't stay. I like seeing your view of how his life would have been, how carefree and confident he'd have been.  And I love the idea of him going back with the mirror to communicate with Sirius.  This would have been an excellent multi-chapter story, as you touched on some things that would have been fun to have fleshed out more -- the AU Harry's siblings, the interactions with his schoolmates and friends, Dumbledore's reaction to his story. And, just to offer some constructive criticism, you glossed over several things too quickly, such as his explanations and discoveries, and how his counterpart explained his appearance to his schoolmates.  Wouldn't Hermione have been more curious about his life and asking more questions, regardless of her different personality?  Weren't his classmates more curious and appalled by his life?  Where was Dumbledore during all of this?  Things like that.  But otherwise, I enjoyed it! 



Author's Response:

I'm really glad you liked the story.  I did write a sequel, which I'll be posting here when RL cooperates, but it's more from the view of this universe than what was happening in the old one.  Thanks for your review!

Awww.  This story was sweet and a bit smutty and wonderful!  And sort of fits into canon, minus the Ginny thing (poor thing keeps getting killed off to get Ron and Harry together!).  And I've never seen Hermione/Cho before, so that's fun. Nice job!

Author's Response:

Aww, she mightn't be *dead*. Just...gone. I actually assumed she wasn't dead, just had taken some crazy job that had her halfway around the world and not in touch. But I'm weird. ^^

I'm a gigantic fan of Hermione/Cho. Dunno why, really, except that I'm a Ravenclaw who's often attracted to Gryffindors. ;)

THANK YOU so much for reading, and for enjoying, and for so kindly reviewing! Made my day. :D

Hey hon.  This was so well done, Risie!  You did a nice job of capturing that cognitive dissonance between wanting to be happy for your friend but feeling that horrible jealousy creeping up. I agree that you should write the story of when she does see her blue lines and tells the others. A nice bit of closure that I know many of us need.

Hi there!  :o)  Thanks so much for reading and reviewing, dear one.  I'm so glad to know that you enjoyed this piece and also want a follow-up fic.  I had no idea so many people would want that!  It's amazing how closure can come in the most unexpected places sometimes, yeah?  Thanks for your kind words!  ::hugs you::
