Bio:

I'm a 42 year old spare parts salesman who lives in Geraldton Western Australia.  I get a real kick out of reading some of the storys here and on other sites but little time to write myself.

My favourite HP couple are Harry and Ginny (mainly because Ginny reminds me so much of my first girlfriend complete with the red hair and temper) as well as Ron and Hermione and though I don't mind reading about other possibilities, especially those that ... mix up ... the combinations within the foursome I tend to prefer stories that concentrate on them.

That's all really.

Wow Meesha that was awesome, well done.  It was great how you managed to explore the unfamiliar territory and still keep them in character.  Definately worth the wait to see it up on page.

Author's Response: Thanks!  And thank you for helping me with the male perspective.  You really helped bring Ron to life in this one.

Don't know about 'On the Rag' but I feel obliged to mention that 'fanny' usually has a quite different meaning in Britain. :)

 

Other than that a good laugh, nicely done.

Oh my, poor Harry putting him in a position like that.  Come to think on it with the exception of Ginny, who would be less thrilled than even Harry to listen to this, Hermione really doesn't have any girl-friends to share this with so kudos to Harry for stepping up to the mark as a true friend.

 

Nicely done.



Author's Response: That was exactly what I thought! Hermione has to put Harry in the 'girlfriend' role because he's all she's got. Well, it works for laugh anyway. :)  Thank you!

This is a fascinating premise and one that could be interesting to expand upon.  If I recall correctly Oz in Buffy learned to control the werewolf in either season four or five which would make it 2000 or 2001, now Half Blood Prince finished in 1997 which presumably means Deathly Hallows will be done in 1998, giving you two or three years to bring that 'cure' to Remus.

Hmm, the possibilities are there to have some fun with this universe, I hope you find time to expand on it.

I remember reading this one ages back, though I can't remember where.  I was just as impressed now as I was then, a great piece of work.

Admittedly I don't think the characters of Harry, Remus and Ginny would have to make such personal journey's as I get the impression we'll see the issue all resolved in a few monthe but I was pleased to see how you managed to keep them in character,even if the situation was unlikely.

Again, well done.

Aargh, I had to go and google Courgette before I could figure that out, we call them Zucchini where I come from.

Anyway, enough of that.  What a touching story, I can so easily see Molly as the compulsive cook with all the pressure she's under and Arthur's concerns about not being there to save his daughter and his resentment at having Harry put himself into that role are quite understandable for a parent.  Fortunately Harry seems up to the role.

Funny (as in interesting) how you had him spot the link between them so early in the piece, with what Jo has put Ginny through I don't think there's another who could be so well suited to be Harry's 'better half'.

Nicely done.

Interesting view on the scene there and I suspect pretty close to the mark too.  At the end of it all despite the various criticisms that have been levelled at her character the whole debacle wasn't just down to Lavender, there were faults enough all round.

Nice work.



Author's Response:

Thank you very much.  I'm happy you enjoyed the story, and I'm honored that you find my imagined scenerio to be close to the mark.

Thanks again for your kind review:)

Take it from an Aussie, Tim Tams are by far the superior product.  Like anything English (Cricket anyone?) the Brits invent it but we perfect it.

 Wonder how Ron would react to Vegemite? Smiley



Author's Response:

I know they are! You don't have to convert a fellow Australian!

Bahaha! I actually wrote a Ron VS Marmite story for a British pal's birthday, but it's on my fiction journal, not TQP. It's called A Cautionary Tale.

Well, that was different.  Nicely written and in keeping with their characters very well I thought.  Could be interpreted any way you see fit but in the end it explores the kind of relationship that two schoolboys who grew up together and went to war would have.

Well done.



Author's Response: Thank you. It is very different to other things I've written in the past. I enjoyed skating along the fine edge of canon, working in and around it until I came up with something that could be completely canon-compliant or AU, depending on which way you read it. Really, it doesn't matter how you read it, because the bond between them is what's important, not whether they're romatically involved. I see the two as seperate issues, because canon Ron and Harry have an incredibly deep bond. They go through something life-changing together, fight a war at a young age and do a lot of incredible and terrible things to survive. That's  going to bind you close to someone, because the only person who can understand exactly what you've been through is someone who was right there beside you.

Nice story, I've always thought that Lavender got the rough end of the stick in HBP, just for acting as Hermione ought to have with Ron.

Author's Response:

Thank you. Yeah people like to make her a bad person, but really she’s just a girl (now woman) with all the same needs and desires as the rest. There is another story coming up that more fully explains her and Hermione’s relationship.
