Tears are seriously in my eyes right now. That was beautiful. If that's what you get from challenging yourself to do something, you should challenge yourself more often. Great story!!! Of course it's not like I expected anything but greatness from you dear.

Author's Response: thank you!  I'm so glad you liked it.  It really was a leap of faith, cuz I've never been a big mpreg gal.  I've always found the premise faintly...disturbing. But hey, they're wizards.  If they can disapparate....why not?  And it really was fun to write.  And I thnk you again for the kind words!

So I like it. I picked up immediately with the italics that Ron was dead. And it's sad, but I'm happy that you finally got some Harry/Ron in there. Best mates make the best mates.

But you've just about got me converted to a Drarry shipper. Just about.... NOT completely. *gigglesnort* Great start. Can't wait for more.

Author's Response: See, it is all part of my evil plan to convert as many to the blond/brunet thing as possible.  Keep reading, and I'll keep working on you!

Loved the backstory. You have my sitting on the edge of my seat. I sense that Draco is in love with Harry because he won't stand up for just anyone, but I'm not too sure about Harry. Although I think he thinks it's funny, possibly cute. And I think that Ginny is happily oblivious to these feelings, this thing that's 'sparking' between them.

Yes, you've almost got me converted. My best friend would love to shake your hand. She's been trying for almost four years to do that and she hasn't succeeded yet. Except for one story that I read religiously. 'Objects of Desire' on Love that story, but possibly because I'm kinda partial to Snape/Hermione. However, in that story, I absolutely hate Harry/Ron. I think it's despicable and could never work in that particular story.

Anywho, i'll get off the whole other story thing. It's great. *go read Objects of Desire* Okay, I'm finished pimping stories. Loves you!!!!!!

Author's Response: Thanks so much, sweetie.  And I'll have to check that out!

So great..... I love that Harry gets the chance to save Maggie. I was wondering if you we're going to bring her back into the loop.

I do however have a question for you. Why in all of your stories is Hermione a bitch? I am totally loathing her atm because of her in your stories. That and who she gets together with in the seventh book. Bitch stole my man.... *gigglesnort*

Well I love it and I can't wait for more. How many chapters are there or do you know yet?

Author's Response:

You know what?  That's a fair question, and I've given it a lot of thought because people have been asking.  The truth is, Hermione irritates the hell out of me in canon.  I think she's a know it all, and I think she has to be right.  I know that she is as loyal as the day is long, and that she cares about Harry, but how much of that is his open acknowledgement that she's smarter than he is?  I don't know, I may be being unfair.  But I could really see Hermione growing up to be somewhat rigid.  I really don't believe that she would be as bad as she is here, but there is a reason for it that becomes pretty clear in the next couple of chapters.  And think about this; even canon Hermione might just have had a problem with Ron ending up with Harry, don't you think?  Glad you're enjoying it.  Hope my 'Hermione bashing' won't keep you from reading!  Thanks, love.

Love, I would never stop reading one of your stories. Even if I didn't like a character's portrayal in it. Besides I don't really like Hermione any either. She is a know-it-all. One of those chicks I beat up in school. Jk!!!! But I wanted to... Actually, I think I was one of those chicks in school. Hmmm.... Not anymore tho. And I never shoved it in anyone's face like she does. "Honestly Ronald...." I hate when she says that. Like she's better than him. She belittle's him more than Draco ever did.

Well just wanted you to know I'll never stop reading. Love ya too much!!

Author's Response: Thanks, love!  Needed that today!

That was great. I wonder why Maggie ran away? Was it because she's anxious about seeing him after so many years or is she scared because of all the lies her mother has fed her or maybe it's because she knows why he's really there and she's terrified of getting help because that would mean admitting that there's a problem? Hmm... I really can't wait for more sweetie!

And I love that Harry already feels the connection between him and Draco. They're soulmates!!! Yay!!! *giggle*

I love it! He just blurted that out. Totally great! I love his apartment too. Can I live there? Green, Black, and Grey are my favorite colors so I'd do really good with that room.

Anywho, I just wanted to say great job and I can't wait for more. Now I must go and brave the snow and cold to get to class.

Author's Response: I'm sure that Draco wouldn't mind having a roommate at all.  Harry, on the other hand, might come to mind!

Oooo.... I love Draco being assertive and putting Minerva in her place. That's what he needs to do more often. Oooo... He can be assertive when he's telling Harry to stay and then they can shag. You can so see I have a one-track mind.
Delightful chapter. Can't wait for more.

Did you post the same chapter twice? Just wanted to know. Cuz I thought you did. Oh well, I'm sure there's a good reason for doing it. Like maybe you were tired.

Author's Response:

Yep, I was tired.  And thanks for catching it for me!  The correct chapter is up now.

OMG.... You have me on the edge of my seat, except I'm standing. I love it. The passion you managed to get in there without anything slashy. It was great. I love it and I can't wait for more. You have me hooked, love.

And I understand the sleepy thing. I have that problem all the time now that I'm only two semesters away from graduation. Can't wait for more.

*gigglesnort* I love Maggie at the end and I'm hating Hermione more and more.
Maggie is funny and Harry's right, she's so like Ron. Independent enough to know that her mum is barking and totally in love with Harry. Of course everyone is in love with Harry. He's a great guy.

And I love that Draco and Harry have finally decided to be something. It's so sweet.

Well can't wait for more.


Author's Response: More will be up soon, I promise!

"and perhaps... hope."

I love it. That's great that they all want Harry to be happy and they're taking the piss out of him for it. Just like Ron was doing earlier. It's a Weasley family tradition.

I can't wait for more. It's great so far. I love how you've teased us with just enough to keep us interested, but not enough to give away the plot until the last moment necessary before a wrap up.

Author's Response: Thanks for the kind words, sweetie!

Hey is everything going okay, just wondering because it's been a while since you've posted. Just wanted to make sure everything in RL is okay.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Author's Response: Everything was fine; I'm just a florist, and Valentine's Day... well, you know.  I'm recouperating!  But updates should be more regular now, and thanks so much for asking!

Aww... Poor Maggie. I was wanting there to be some way that Harry could get custody of her until Maggie was old enough to be on her own. Just to piss Hermione off.

I'm glad that it was just a hectic week, I was starting to get worried. I hate Valentine's day so I didn't buy any flowers, but I think that's just because I don't have anyone to buy flowers for. Oh well...

Can't wait for more. I'm hoping maybe Voldy's back and he'll kill Hermione or something.


Author's Response: I didn't buy flowers for anyone, either!  Hee!  And no Voldy this time, but something... interesting.

That was amazing. I loved it so much that I don't know exactly what to say about it except that it was amazing. That and I'm exhausted because I haven't been sleeping lately. But it's a great treat and I'm sure to have many a good dreams tonight.


Author's Response: Thanks so much, and I hope you're sleeping better~!
