I was so happy to see an update of this story!  I was actually wondering about it mid-January. . . .

I think you are doing a great job of playing out the roles of Harry and Dudley.  They are trying, but there is so much 'past' between them.  I am even happy with how you wrote Draco. 

 I like the 'improvements' you have enacted on how Muggleborns are inducted into the Wizarding world.  Seems about time!

And I am very worried about poor Matt.  I hope to see another update soon.

Author's Response:

I have to admit that the "improvements" for the Muggleborn students have a lot to do with the things that bother me as a mom; this is my way of reacting to them.

 

Harry and Dudley are tough.  Even in DH, they were growing up, and starting to mellow towards each other, but Harry Hunting and floating puddings don't make it easy between them.  (And Draco either grew up or became completely horrible, and . . . he seemed to be growing up.)

 

I agree.  Poor Matt.

 

Thanks for your review!

Can't remember if I've reviewed before, I tend to be lazy about that - sorry.  Just wanted to let you know how much I truly enjoyed this story.  You are a fantastic writere.  I will miss looking for your updates!

 Not sure how to handle the fact that John has a wizarding background.  Will that make him more angry?  Could be enough to send him back over the edge!  He felt entitled to it before, what about now that it SHOULD be in his blood. . .  

Anyway, really had fun reading your story.  Think I'm going to go check and see if you've written anything else! 



Author's Response: Dear kmagarden, I don't recall seeing your name before, but even so, thanks for taking the time to review now.  Sometimes I get so wrapped up in a story that I completely forget to review until I get to the end.  Hopefully, that was case with you.  :)  Please let me know if you read any of my others and drop me a line with your thoughts.  Take Care and thanks again!

Summary: She was accused of betraying their friendship, their side, so she left. Almost three years have passed and now she is asked to forgive and forget. Hermione did not know what to do or how to feel .... Non-DH complaint.

I am so happy to see you have updated!  I had read this fic quite awhile ago and really enjoyed it.  I'm glad to see it moving forward. 

 As much as I don't like Harry in your story right now, after all he's been through, I can buy it.  I like how he and Hermonie are still close, and are helping each other with their struggles.  Very intrested in seeing where this goes!  Keep writing!



Author's Response:

Many thanks for the kind words. I don't believe you have reviewed before so welcome to my fic. Yeah, Harry is not the person we learned to love in the books. However I do believe that not having any idea what happened between Voldemort's defeat and the scene at the train station nineteen years later, fanfiction writers have all sort of different scenarios to work with. I can't believe there was no mental,emotional or spiritual trauma after the war. We all know PTSD exists so why wouldn't Harry, Hermione or Ron suffer from it?  Next chapter is a few pages long and needs a lot of work. Until next time and thank you!

Very excited to see an update to this story!  I really enjoy it.  This chapter was entirely too short for my liking!  LOL  I hope you can update again soon.  I'm anxious to see what happens when Hermonie finds out about that photo.  And what Ron does when he bothers to find out exactly what happened.

Author's Response:

Thank you so much for the comment. I am writing chapter 32 right now. Hermione's reaction to the article and Ron's trip back to England are going to take one or two chapters. I am working not only in what I want Hermione to feel about the article and the photo but most importantly what kind or reunion should Ron and Hermione have? I honestly don't want Ron to come out as the bad guy, so I must be careful how I portray him.  I have offered my readers from another site a snippet of the next chapter when they review, would you be interested? Email me at elenapanam at yahoo dot com if it is so. Again, much obliged for the kind words.

so happy you are still working on this!  Looking forward to the next chapter.  Can't believe Harry is taking Ron to see her. . . not sure that's going to go well. . .

Author's Response:

Oh yes, I'm still working on my story although time, family and other obligations take time away from it. My betas are too busy so I decided to update regardless plus good, reliable, dependable betas are rare, very rare. Harry is kind of rushing it, isn't he?  Taking Ron to see Hermione without telling her might not be the wisest choice but I guess he is eager to have his two best friends talk. Chapter 35 is finished I just want to read it again before I post it.  Many thanks for your comment!

Very real-life confrontation!  I don't know what I was expecting, but I like this.  Hermonie doubted, frustrated, but still raging mad, and willing to do anything to protect her son.

 And what is up with Sebastian.  This is going to get interesting!

  “You haven’t heard a word I said, Hermione.”

  “I’m giving you the same courtesy you gave me three years ago. Goodbye, Ron.” She didn’t wait for an answer, she shut the door on his face.

 ohhhh - I just loved that part!  :D

 Looking forward to more!



Author's Response:

So glad you liked it! Thank you again for your compliments. I had replied to this review but something happened because it disappeared, my apologies.  Sebastian was a lot of fun to write and believe it or not having Hermione being so mean to Ron made me feel awful. Next chapters are finished but not edited so a few more weeks and I will be able to update.

Was so happy to see an update of this story!  You write very well.  I'm looking forward to seeing a little more background on what happened, the big kiss was never mentioned?  Or is this not DH compliant?  Hummmm. . .

 I can't wait to see how this all works out.  Poor Hermonie.  :( 



Author's Response:

The big kiss happened, in this story neither party acted on it afterwards, but this will be explored later on.

 

Thanks for reading. x
