Just wanted to say I love this story. I have been thinking of good ways of getting them to come clean with each other, and I can't wait to read your next chapter! I read a lot of stories but I never ever review. I love the New Hope boys. Can they make another appearance? Please??

Summary: Harry watched Hermione as she sat cross legged on the floor of the bedroom, her belly resting on her calves, and sorted baby clothes into piles.

There was a system. Harry couldn’t tell what that system was, but he was sure there was a system.

Love your story (the whole thing) and your approach to parenting.  We raise our kids this way, too.

Author's Response:

it was a bit self indulgent of me, but such fun to write this into the world.

thanks for your review.

This was so hot.  I wish it had been longer--more there, ou know?  Because the idea is so damn hot.

Author's Response: Thank you! No, I'm afraid I don't have more, but yes, more needs to be done with this idea. Harry can be rather persuasive. ;)

I can't believe I've never reviewed this story!!!  I've read it so many times.  I just re-read because I was thinking about you as I joined the hd_readers group.  This is my favorite of your stories.  The emotional pieces just have stuck with me.  Can I share my fav moments?

-When Harry and Draco each remember/fantasize/dream of their first time together AT THE SAME TIME.  So hot.  And sad.

-Harry standing in the restaurant, staring at Draco, and Draco dropping the tray. 

-Harry realizing something is very wrong when he asks Draco where his wand is and Draco is like, "Huh?" 

-When Harry achingly and lovingly asks, "Where have you been?" and Draco responds with tears in his eyes and his hand on Harry's: "Lost."  (that's my favorite of all.)

-When Harry is holding Draco on the couch and says, "Don't cry, babe.  I'll fall apart if you do." That sounds kind of cheesy out of context, but it rings so sweetly and true in the moment.

-When Harry walks into the bedroom after Draco's been with the healer and thinks on how he never thought he'd see Draco stretched out like this again.  What a gift he's been given to have D back.

And I just love Harry/Pansy.  I also adore Pansy's monologue in defense of Draco at the hotel. 

 Writing-wise, I really think your pacing is perfect.  Going back and forth between Harry's story, Draco's story, and the behind the scenes stuff with the minister and Hermione all runs well.  The only thing that sometimes distracted me was when WITHIN a scene, the perspective would switch between characters.  One line would have Draco noticing something about Harry (or Michael), and then vice versa without a deliberate break.  But it is nice to be able to write (and read) both of their perspectives.

Your masculine-and-angsty!Harry is so so hot.  Is it wrong that I always think the Blaise almost-sex scene is so hot???  Maybe I just want my own glaring green-eyed troubled war hero to boss me around!!  :)  Thanks for an emotional roller coaster story. 

Second Trimester by TheTrioMakesMeHot Rated: RT - Restricted Themes starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 61]
Summary:

~~SEQUEL TO TEN WEEKS~~ (Ten Weeks is short; you may want to read it first)
The Trio are forced to deal with repressed sexual attraction that began to surface in the unlikeliest of circumstances.            NOTE: This fic is still unfinished.  At first, I was delayed because of a career change  that came with an hour's commute in each direction, but the delay is currently due to the nature of the story itself.   I can't explain here as it will ruin the story, but I will add a note at the end of Chapter 9 explaining it.  I DO intend to finish this at some point, and it will be posted here, at LJ and at AO3 once I do.  I just can't say right now how long before I am able to focus on this one.

I like you turning the tables on Harry (comparing to your last fic where Harry had all the control--or seemed to).



Author's Response: That was really what I wanted here...to work with the tension between their personalities in a way that seems a little more canon. Draco is a very dominant and manipulative person, whose needs and insecurities are hidden. Harry is the more open minded, in touch person here, capable of giving. Draco needs to grow before they're equals...and i've spun that here ...and I hope you like! Peaces, Sam

Yay!  Glad to see a new story from you.  I loved That Which Divides Us, esp. the dynamic between Harry and Pansy, and I also loved All Dresed Up.  This one looks to be good, too!

For a great story on clairvoyance (ish) see Of Hearts and Heroes by emmilyne on Checkmated.  Regarding this story (and that which divides us) you really like your OOC hermione, don't you??  That's okay, since your harry/draco dynamic is always so believable. 

Author's Response: OOC Hermione?  Who?  Me?  *g*  Thanks for the compliments!

I think I forgot to review last chapter.  Just wanted to say that Harry was so freakin' hot in that scene.  And in the middle of hd games--I'm reading hd stories all day, but that sex scene beats them all.  Well done!

Author's Response: Thanks so much!  And I'm so glad to know that you are reading over at Games.  Someday I'll be able to tell everyone which one was mine!

Thank you for this story.  I think you captured Sirius' brash nature as well as his loyalty.

Author's Response:

Thank you!

Because it was a really intense situation I was putting the characters (especially Sirius) into, I had to work hard to try and keep them true to character, and also young. Sirius had to be brash and impulsive without being erratic and unstable, because this was pre-Azkaban.

I wanted to show his devotion to James, Lily, Remus and Harry, and even Peter. He's so completely blindsided by Peter's betrayal, and part of his grief is mourning for him too. He is Dumbledore's loyal man, as well, but by the time they have their discussion, he's made his promise to Harry and won't be swayed from it, even for him. Sirius knows he has a legal claim, and he's not going to be talked into waiving it.
