Is there anything sexier than a sweaty Quidditch player? Not that I can think of....
This is wonderful, dear. Truly. How nice to read a fic that takes JKR's wonderful people, just as they are, and grows them up into people we recognize! I love twisting them up as much as the next person (something you may have guessed) and I'm a huge slash fan. But this...this is just perfect. It gives us Ron and Hermione and Ginny and Harry as we hope Jo does, with the chance to grow and love and have lives that repay them for everything that they've had to go through. Thank you for this! I've enjoyed it so much.
And if you don't mind, I'd like to recommend it on my LiveJournal. Let me know if that's okay with You!
Holy cow Barbara! I totally was not expecting 4 WONDERFUL reviews from you. Thank you, thank you and THANK YOU! You know I'm one of your biggest fans so coming from you it really means a lot. I'm so pleased that you liked it as this was my very first foray into fanfiction. I wrote it last year and it was originally archived at Checkmated. Yes you can recommend it to anyone you like! Again, thank you SO much for the wonderful reviews. It warms my heart, it really does.
Oh and please please please tell me that the next installment of Now and Then will be up soon! I'm dying here!

Yay!!! This is so beautiful. Okay...
One hour of labor?!!! I think I hate her. (Just kidding. My shortest was 21, so I'm just bitter...)
When Molly handed Harry the baby, it made me cry. Literally, and I don't do that often. The name is lovely. Syriah. Perfect.
The love making is stunning. So not smutty, and I thank you for that. Your respect for these characters is palpable, and perfect. I love smut as much as the next person, but not for these two, and not in that moment. Lovely, really.
Well I figured Ginny isn't the type of person to dawdle around with anything so why should labour be any different? LoL. I can't speak from experience of course. My daughter was feet first breech so I had to have a c-section. Seriously I am having sympathy pains thinking of 21 hours. LoL.
I like !smutty Ron as much as the next person but I really wanted to make the scene more about love than sex. I'm so pleased you approved :o)

Ahhhh!!! Just when it's getting to the good part! Thank God there's another chapter here. They are so sweet! Lovely description of that kiss, by the way. Just steamy enough to not overbalance how poignant it is.
