"‘And even though he’s gone, there will always be people who were dropped on their heads as babies, or should have been hugged more as small children, or are just downright psychopaths."
So true, and nicely put :p
How does Ginny know how to change nappies? She's the youngest child.
I love the word "moue"

I guess Snape didn't put the book on the list cos her didn't want to make it too easy for his students
Aww, I love the way Ron cares for Harry- a few years ago and he would have laughed at him and woken him up
Ron set the cauldron he levitating to the table down and slipped up the stairs to the flat.
"‘Here goes everything,’" instead of nothing :D Ron makes me smile
I like the sort of metaphor between Harry taking his glasses off and having hazy and distorted dreams
Loved the conversation between Ginny and Harry

Wow! I'm not disappointed that Ginny's birthday has to be in the next chapter. I can't wait to read it, though. Update soon. I also can't wait to read "Lilies in Autumn".

Thank goodness Harry finally got a good night's sleep.
"He hadn’t been truly alone in his thoughts in...Four years."
"It wasn’t the tense silences that marked the weeks and months of the last year, but rather the calm that descended after a storm."
I loved Harry telling Ginny about dying and making the decision to come back. He needed to talk about it with someone.
Poor Ron, lonely and worried without Hermione there. I had to go back & read bits of "Treehouses" to be sure she is OK & will be back soon.
Loved all the shop stuff - fun! And glad to see Katie back on the scene, even though it may be a little uncomfortable for George. I think he is sorry about how he handled things with her. Or maybe he is just unsure about getting into a relationship right now? Personally, I think it would be good for him. :-)

Aw, yay, George and Katie. They make me happy. And so does Harry/Ginny. Which is why I squee-ed rather loudly when he kissed her nose in the shop. :)) Lol this was nice, and I like how Harry's finally starting to relax and notice the peace and quiet. It was, as usual, a very good chapter, and I can't wait for an update (yay, party! OMG YES, LUNA!)!

Good chapter. I haven't been reading post-DH fanfiction for a while because good ones so difficult to find in the HP section.
You mentioned that Hermione is trying to find her parents. Are you going to write a story about that? 'Cause that would be interesting to read. I've seen that kind of story done (or tried) before, but not in a while.

Wonderful. I feel like this chapter is a step forward in the right direction, both with Harry and George. And I liked this last bit with Katie. In your world is she and George together? Sorry but I read so many post DH stories I forget who the authors put George with, it's either Alicia, Katie or Angelina. But I like your Katie, she's pretty cool.
Thanks for the update!

Wonderful chapter. Wonderful. The first step to normalcy, depending on your definition of normal. About the chapter title: for me that line has always been the precursor to some important bit of news that, as you said, brought on some change. My father and grandfather would show up and use that line to introduce the serious and important subject they needed to talk to me about. It heralded the birth of my first niece, and the fact that my baby brother joined the army just in time to be sent to the Persian Gulf the first time around, and that my great-grandfather, a true giant of a man (I'm speaking literally, he was 6' 7" tall) had died.

Awesome! So I'm guessing he got her a owl?
Aw...can't wait to read her birthday.
| benperez31 chapter 12 . 8/16/2008
Good chapter even without Ginny's birthday. I'm glad Harry got some sleep. I can guess what Harry bought Ginny. It's good that George is trying hard to recover from losing Fred. Update soon.

It's true if he could walk away once, what's to stop him from doing it again under the same or even less of the same type of circumstance. You do have a great ability to look inside these relationships and bring forward realistic feelings, questions and thoughts that we (I) would not have thought of.
Molly: Out of all the books my favourite line..."Not my daughter you BITCH!"...I literally cheered out loud when I read that line! Interesting dynamics when she and Andromeda are interacting.
I have to feel for Ron. He's there for everyone else, it's seem they are taking him a little for granted...

Please update soon! Very good!
