This was sweet and charming. Very nicely done. Thanks for sharing.
| Ice Demon Ranger chapter 1 . 4/29
| Starfox5 chapter 1 . 1/7
Sweet, touching story. Just one nitpick: Marriage between first cousins is legal in Britain (and most of the world, almost all of Europe and the Americas as well as Australia and New Zealand). Even in the weird USA, marriage between first cousins is legal in many states. So, Lily and Hugo could have married without any problem.

Short, sweet, very good story. Fixes, but does not change the awful canon epilogue.

Just thought I would point out that first cousin marriage is not illegal in much of the world. wiki/Cousin_marriage#Current_status

| The Ghostly Minion chapter 1 . 2/11/2015
I can't believe I've not read this, favorited and reviewed it. Your premise makes all the sense in the world. I love the way you made and detailed their situation, heart-breaking as it is to a Harmonian.
The way they go back makes sense. This is not a R28 sort of situation and doesn't have to be. The outstanding question is how a more engaged Harry and Hermione, life partners would have done to improve things.
Certainly sixth year would have been very different, but so would fifth year (and I agree with many others that the fifth year can be seen as the absolute nadir in Harry's life).
I know it's been almost six years, but a companion story, starting the night of the Yule Ball and continuing until, say the birth of Lily and Hugo (twins, this time around) would be wonderful.
Unlike a lot of authors, I think you are good enough to chronicle those years, the Horcrux hunt finding a way to remove Harry's Horcrux. Then the joy of three 'normal years' to offset the first four. Finding a career path for after Hogwarts, eventually marriage then the twins. You can do their store full justice.
Even should you decline this, you have given us this story, for which I am grateful.

I really like this! Also I like Lily and Hugo, and how you showed the effect of Hr and R's relationship on Rose, and the teasing from James to Albus (poor kid). While I always wish for more of an enjoyable fic, it made sense to end it where you did.

What about Dobby?
| Sixstringsamurai83 chapter 1 . 12/13/2014
every time i read this story, it makes me smile, makes my heart swell, but also makes me sad because it really should have happened just like that..
| corwyn chapter 1 . 11/23/2014
cool story. thanks for sharing it.
| inScense09 chapter 1 . 9/24/2014
The sad part about this is that I can definitely see this happening in the HP world. It's sad because HHr had a chance to be together but weren't able to. But at last that's why fanfiction is here for.
