Very cute.  Even though it's after Christmas, this was still so enjoyable.  Good work!

Dear Sara, I must say that I had seen your story listed before, but when the staff was voting on the Stories of the Year, I decided to read.  I generally go for happier stories and this one is definitely full of angst and sorrow, but I find myself compelled to continue.  Even though this review is on Chapter 1, I'm 75% through your story at the moment.  At first I had to get past the suggestion of Harry acting the way he did - as I never picture Harry quite this intense and specifically, not toward his lovely Ginny.  Still, you've pulled me in and I go from chapter to chapter, hoping and praying that things are going to change - that Harry won't go and do something stupid once again to push her away.  I like your Oliver as well.  Many stories are written with Oliver as a real dirtball and you have him quite romantic and gentlemanly - albeit a bit too obsessed with Quidditch - but hey, the Superbowl is this weekend so I think most women can relate!!  Your Ginny is very forgiving, but still has that temper and I love how absolutely everything that happens seems to get misconstrued, miscommunicated, overheard or otherwise fouls up the works for your young lovers.  Poor Ron, too!  He's done everything for Hermione and now she wants to head off to Rome.  Part of me thinks Hermione should stay and let Ron have his chance at Auror training and another part tells me to have Ron go with her.  I can't wait to see what you've decided to do.  Well, I'm going to go back now and try to read the rest.  Inbetween, I'll try to actually get something done at work today!!  Good work.  You write very well and you certainly captured my attention!!  Congratulations on making one of the Stories of the Year! - Branded

Oh, I just love it.  <Sighing with satisfaction>  But what about Ron and Hermione?  I hope you have a part 2 of this to resolve that relationship.  I can't stand our darling Ronnie to be so upset.  I'm going to search your catalog to see what else you've written as this was truly enjoyable.  Nice work!!

Yes, this started a bit odd, but I saw your comments and stuck with it.  Very interesting and I can't wait to see what happens next!



Author's Response: Thanks for sticking with it.  I know it's a bit off the beaten path, but I got a bunny and I had to follow the bunny.

Very cute.  Neat idea on using the opera.  Good work!  I like the little "twist" in the epilogue.

Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it!  Thanks for sticking with it until the end.  Have you read the prequel and sequel (Black Roses and White Roses)?

DAMN!  That was HOT!  Totally tantalizing!  I may have to go back and write some more on my own stuff now that I'm so tingly and in the mood!  I love Harry all innocent and naive.  This was like The Graduate, but better.  Good Work!!

Author's Response: Thank you, glad you enjoyed it.  I wrote it for the Erotic Elves Porn for Everyone 'open season' if you will.  I'm toying with a follow up.  I figured where better for Harry to get an intro to sex than the Quidditch lockers?

You naughty little thing, you!!  Very cute and a great idea to have Teddy with his mother's traits.  Neville and Gabrille, huh?  I hadn't pictured them together, but my, oh, my!

Author's Response: Lupin mentions in DH that he thinks Teddy might have metamorph talent.  And since Gaby couldn't marry Harry, I figured she'd 'console' herself with the other hero of the Battle of Hogwarts.  Thanks for reading!
