Harry has got to have the most horrible timing in the world. But that was just a funny ending for this chapter.



Author's Response: I thought it might be good to lighten the mood a bit, thanks for the review!

That was soooo funny. I can just see Ron's attitude change quickly to accomodate Hermione "kids, brush your teeth, it's time for bed"

Thank you! Yes, Hermione likes a little levatation with her dessert and Ron LOVES to see her in the air! Off to bed indeed!

Cool. I hope that Ron's little dance with the young lady will show Hermione that Ron is also capable of being chased by other women and that she should not be so self assured that by getting Ron jealous that he will cave in to her demands. I am waiting to see if Hermione will see that by using Viktor and the threat of moving to Bulgaria is the wrong move if she wants Ron to propose and perhaps in the inevitable outcome push him away from her forever. Nobody likes to be pushed into a situation that they feel is demeaning to their feelings. Especially Ron and I hope that Hermione will eventually see this and accept the fact that Ron will not be pushed around so easily as he was in school.

anyway good story I look forward to the next chapter.



Author's Response:

Hello Lovely mclaughlin!

I do agree that it is rather devious of our girl to hold the threat of moving to Bulgaria over our boy's head. The next chapter pretty much features the both of them acting completely ridiculous. I hope you'll like it. It was meant to be a funny, romantic story, though I am inclined to agree with you that Hermione's threats of leaving are very cruel. Thank you for your wonderful, thought provoking comments! I love how you see different facets to the story and really read into the emotions of the characters.  The next chapter should be up by the end of the week and you'll see why it's rated RT. *winks* Thanks again for your fabulous comments dearest!!! 

*SMOOCH*

Not a bad story. You do know that Rons birthday is 1st March

Author's Response: Thank you for the review! Actually, March 1st in 1999 (the year Hermione and Ginny would have been in their last year at Hogswarts after Voldemort is gone) would have been a Monday. Since they are on a Hogsmeade weekend, I picked the Saturday before his birthday for Hermione to bestow his gift haha. That's a very good spot though!

Great story. And you're dead right! Minerva does know best. There is no guarantee that being left with family is the right thing. In most cases it isn't. Especially if said family is estranged from one another. I agree that Albus is pompous and full of his own self importance and even more so by placing Harry in an environment that has no tolorence for Magic as this was one of the worst things he ever did and this continues throughout the entire HP story including deliberately placing Harry in dangerous and precarious situations. Minerva seems to know what Lily would want for her only child's welfare and as you have stated correctly and in my opinion 'No way in Hell' would Lily want her muggle sister and her equally beligerant husband looking after Harry and making sure he was safe, looked after and made to feel as though he was wanted. Because of Albus' deliberate mistake in judgement Harry suffered through year of unnecessary abuse, neglect and felt that he was both a nuisence and a hindrance by 'Supposed Family' I am pleased that you had Minerva play a prank on Albus that would have made the Twins - Fred and George proud.

Author's Response: Thank you for such a nice review!  I can't forgive Dumbledore for leaving Harry with the Dursleys, knowing they would treat him with incredible cruelty.  And why didn't he ever check up on Harry?  He could have "popped in" once a year or so, while Harry and Dudley were at school.  "Just checking on things, Petunia," would have been enough to make sure Harry was treated decently.  The Dursleys would never have loved him, but they could have been scared into providing for him far better than they did.  I see Minerva as waiting for years to become Headmistress, knowing the slot won't be hers until Dumbledore dies or retires.  I'm sure she had her own ideas of how to improve the school, which Albus likely dismissed.

I really enjoy this story so far. I like that you have Ron finally do something for himself for a change in order to get out from under Harry's and his families shadow and try and find his place in the world. Interesting that you have Ron give up magic and escape to the Muggle world - I think that this is just what Ron needs to do and his joining the air force is exactly the right thing for him to do as he comes from a family who has known war and been touched by tragedy so he would feel a sense of duty to help his fellow man in trying to keep the world arould him at peace. If that means leaving everything he cherishes then that is exactly what he will sacrifice. I look forward to the next update, please don't take too long as I am already addicted to this story. Excellent writing - keep up the good work.

Author's Response: First, to everybody else, this is not a plant. :P :D jk. But really, thanks for the response and glad you like the story so far. I've read the books to number 6, and I did definitely sense a sort of inferiority role being played by Ron, like he wanted to be a martyr because then he's proved himself capable in the eyes of his friends. I think having Ron "suffer" battle fatigue in a sense makes him realize that hey, maybe wanting to jump on the proverbial grenade (jump in front of an Avada curse to save Harry or Hermione) for his buddies is not what a seventeen-year-old should aspire to do. So because of that, he leaves to go find himself, to find what is really laid out for him, not what he thinks is laid out for him, seen through war-colored lenses. And it's not really getting out of Harry's shadow as it is getting out from under his mother. It's been said "Mother knows best," but from reading the books and some of the canon-based fanfics on here and on other sites, she does so at the very real risk of giving Ron an inferiority complex, that whatever he does cannot, and will not measure up to whatever his brothers have done, especially Percy. And I feel that he has to get out of that shadow and do things for himself, not because Mama wants him to do a certain thing or because it's the family occupation. And the writing? Well, you have the Benedictine Monks to thank for that ;).

Hello, I have reviewed 2 months ago and I really like this story so far. I have one question? Will you be updating soon?

Author's Response: As soon as I get some motivation and some time, yes, it's getting updated. The workload for my Criminal Procedures and Constitutional Issues class this week is fairly light, so there will be some headway made on getting a new chapter or two up.
