You know, when something is this well written, it doesn't need porn.  Well done.

This is lovely!  And I didn't get that it was Ron and Hermione until the very end.  I like the passion between Harry and Ginny very much.  Well done! 

Author's Response:

Wow! Coming from you, that is a HUGE compliment. I'm very happy you enjoyed it and please forgive my bit of trickery. It was for a good cause :o)

Hands by Tarie Rated: FG - Family Guidance starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 3]
Summary: He stares at his hands a lot these days. Most people don't notice it 'cos they're too busy patting him on the back and congratulating him for finally killing Voldemort, saving the wizarding world, and all that.

But I notice it.

I notice it and then I stare at his hands, too.

"...he's just jealous because someone dropped a house on his sister???!!!"  I laughed out loud, and then had to share the line with my roommate.  Hilarious.  I love this Drake, he's adorable. This one is really fun.

Author's Response: Thats a gay classic, actually. Remember what happened to the first witch in the Wizard Of Oz? The Wicked Witch vowed revenge because it was her sister who wound up having the house land on her. Since gay culture adores Judy Garland, I had to give ultra-gay Drake a line that reffered to Wizard Of Oz :-) Thanks Love :-) Very glad to provide some laughs :-) Peace to ya! Samayel

This is very sweet, and there were moments when I laughed out loud.  Like:

"Ron, are you coming?"

Sadly, no.

Funny stuff.  And Ron and Harry's relationship is perfect.  You've hit all of them just right.  Well done.

Ahhhh!!!  Just when it's getting to the good part!  Thank God there's another chapter here.  They are so sweet!  Lovely description of that kiss, by the way.  Just steamy enough to not overbalance how poignant it is.

Yay!!!  This is so beautiful.  Okay...

One hour of labor?!!!  I think I hate her. (Just kidding.  My shortest was 21, so I'm just bitter...) 

When Molly handed Harry the baby, it made me cry.  Literally, and I don't do that often.  The name is lovely. Syriah.  Perfect.

The love making is stunning.  So not smutty, and I thank you for that.  Your respect for these characters is palpable, and perfect.  I love smut as much as the next person, but not for these two, and not in that moment.  Lovely, really.  



Author's Response:

Well I figured Ginny isn't the type of person to dawdle around with anything so why should labour be any different? LoL. I can't speak from experience of course. My daughter was feet first breech so I had to have a c-section. Seriously I am having sympathy pains thinking of 21 hours. LoL.

I like !smutty Ron as much as the next person but I really wanted to make the scene more about love than sex. I'm so pleased you approved :o)

Is there anything sexier than a sweaty Quidditch player?  Not that I can think of....

 This is wonderful, dear.  Truly.  How nice to read a fic that takes JKR's wonderful people, just as they are, and grows them up into people we recognize!  I love twisting them up as much as the next person (something you may have guessed) and I'm a huge slash fan.  But this...this is just perfect.  It gives us Ron and Hermione and Ginny and Harry as we hope Jo does, with the chance to grow and love and have lives that repay them for everything that they've had to go through.  Thank you for this!  I've enjoyed it so much.

And if you don't mind, I'd like to recommend it on my LiveJournal.  Let me know if that's okay with You! 



Author's Response:

Holy cow Barbara! I totally was not expecting 4 WONDERFUL reviews from you. Thank you, thank you and THANK YOU! You know I'm one of your biggest fans so coming from you it really means a lot. I'm so pleased that you liked it as this was my very first foray into fanfiction. I wrote it last year and it was originally archived at Checkmated. Yes you can recommend it to anyone you like!  Again, thank you SO much for the wonderful reviews. It warms my heart, it really does.

Oh and please please please tell me that the next installment of Now and Then will be up soon! I'm dying here!

Oh.  Wow.  This is awful, and devastating...and quite heartbreakingly beautiful.  I have tears in my eyes.  I'm not a huge fan of this pairing ordinarily, but dear God, this is stunning.  Bravo.
