Chapter 7: Chapter 7 - Rumination
"Oh, yes. Anything that's worth waiting for can't be rushed."e
Okay, so, now Molly and her orange tree have given me hope. I didn't remember that from the last time I read this. (That's how long it's been!) So, here I sit, all hopeful, and thinking to myself that, yes, just maybe this can work out. If all four of the major players can forgive themselves, perhaps they can forgive eachother as well, and accept that Harry and Hermione fell together out of need for comfort and affection and duty. That because they love eachother, they were able to convince eachother that they could, over time, fall IN love, as well.
And, maybe then, just maybe, the players can all return to their proper partners and heal and be happy.
I'm going to hold onto this, even though it's been a very long time since you've updated. After all, until you finish it, the story is mine to shape in my head, right? I can speculate a thousand different endings until you give me the one you want me to have. (No pressure, though. I'm assuming that real life is giving you stumbling blocks, not that you've abandoned this wonderful story. Because, surely you wouldn't do that.)Author's Response:
My dear, you are spoiling me with your thought-provoking and lovely reviews! Thank you so much for doing that- I can't tell you what a boost it is for me! As I said in response to an earlier review, I have had several family emergencies to deal with... that's been quite stressful and left little time for fic writing. But, you're right- I haven't abandoned this piece! Not by a long shot. Thank you for letting me know you still care about the outcome.
*nods knowingly* A little bit of hope never hurt anybody... I hope I'm able to untwist the knot in a way that is satisfactory and fitting to the story. Hopefully a new chapter will be on the way sooner, rather than later. Thank you again! *pineapple-coconut gelato for you*
