||13: Chapter 13 – A Birthday Surprise
|I'm trying to think of all the ways this can go wrong. I look forward to seeing which one you choose. |
Author's Response: Wondering if you thought right? :)

||12: Chapter 12 – Ginny’s Plan
|Some of those Gryffindors just can't take "no" for an answer, can they? I think the real reason Ginny is so hung up on finding Nobel is because it's a distraction from her crumbling marriage and crummy life--not to mention that she gets to spite Harry. |
Author's Response: Yes, all the above. There's a nagging in the back of her head, but will she listen?

||11: Chapter 11 – Ginny’s Darkest Hour
|It's a pity Harry's too young to be familiar with Hair. Somebody needs to sing him "Easy to Be Hard." Your analysis of Gryffindor courage as being purely outer-directed is very astute. It's not suited to dealing with emotional problems. I really liked the Sherlockian reference. I've always thought Snape is very Holmesish. |
Author's Response: I'd never considered Snape to be Holmeish before... but that's an astute observation :)

||10: Chapter 10 – The Knife’s Edge
|You really know how to keep up the suspense, don't you? Then--dun, dun, DUN--you put the "evil" in "evil cliffie." |
Author's Response: I know, my bad. All I can say is, trust me.

||9: Chapter 9 – The Calm Before The Storm
|Your analysis of Snape's feelings about Lily is outstanding, both psychologically astute and elegantly expressed. I love the way you use insights into the characters' psyches to keep the reader's attention engaged even though little is happening in the story. |
Author's Response: Thank you, I felt for this story to work we really needed to see where each character was coming from emotionally. I'm glad that comes across.

||8: Chapter 8 - Heartache At The Hospital
|This is another great chapter. I particularly liked Harry's POV about being a father. It showed a sensitivity we usually don't see in him. I felt sorry for him at the end. His cluelessness about other people is really biting him in the butt here. |
Author's Response: He's got a saving the world complex, always has, always will.

||7: Chapter 7 - St. Mungo's Fire
|Any time you see deserted halls and people in masks, that's bad news. Now I'm wondering if this crisis will split Harry and Ginny's marriage even further apart. |
Author's Response: Keep reading :)

||6: Chapter 6 - Hagrid's Lament
|A wizard with a hazmat suit and a truck? How did that happen? And Harry seems to have brought illness home to his family. This is getting exciting. |
Author's Response: Hold on to your hat!

||5: Chapter 5 – November Spawned A Monster
|Oh, good, the suspense builds. Rotten wizards. They can't keep their own house in order, so innocent non-magicals suffer for it. I was glad to see the acknowledgment that the non-magical health service works better than the magical one. Take that, wizards! |
Author's Response: Haha, I'm glad you enjoyed this one.

||4: Chapter 4 – Dinner Party At The Potter’s
|" Each touch and caress felt as if it was somehow repairing the tattered tapestry of their relationship.
Ginny felt the shivers of pleasure being replaced by the creeping tendrils of dread as Harry rolled over on to his side of the bed. The coolness from the absence of his body against hers reflected the sense of rejection that had washed over her."
This is really lovely, with great metaphors. It's a real pleasure to read such good writing. |
Author's Response: It's a pleasure to get such wonderful, detailed reviews. Thank you!
