|Reviews for Lynne's AU Ending to The Marriage Stone|

You are a gifted and talented writer.
I commend you on the story and most of all sticking to your guns and being true to the plot of Josephine Darcy. I'm so glad you ruled out MPREG as she stated in this story it simply was not possible
I loved your take on the knowledge rather than power sharing as this made Merlin Favour all the more personal and unique to Harry and Severus. If Harry and Severus to have a child through squib surregacy can that child get a "bloody teddy bear"
I wonder about your plans for Petunia and Dudley?
I am very happy about her friendship with the kindly but well connected squib. Petunia may be facing financial hardship even if Vernon was insured it still will not bring in the regular income she was used to. Will Dudley become a little more bearable as he seemed fascinated with the wizerding world and the castle.
Poor Harry and Severus no escape from fame LOL.
The inclusion of the Royal Family was good and the Prime Minister was also well done. A little worried that the PM was able to call troops to Battle without a Parliamentary vote even in a closed session but poetic licence should be allowed in fiction.
A very minor point and my apologies if it has been brought up before but British children use MUM not MOM.
I don't know if this is where Josephine would have taken the story or not BUT this is the most plausible of all those that I have read but still feels as if there is a fresh set of hands writing this. I like all the others don't know what happened to Josephine Darcy if she is even alive today or not but no matter I truly feel she would be proud and honoured that you have not only continued the story but have done so in a way that does not diminish the original and only enhances the plot. You have shown her a great deal of respect by sticking to the plot and universe she created in The Marriage Stone.
I look forward to your updates as and when you are able
I thank you for sharing your time and your work it is very much appreciated.

I have finally made it through the whole story starting with Ms. Darcy's through to the end of yours. Your continuation dovetails so well into the orginal it is practially seamless. Congratulations on a wonderful job! I am anxiously awaiting the next chapter. Thank you for all your hard work.

I was reading the Russian translation of this incredible work untill the last chapter came. Obviously was too impatient to wait for interpreters to finish their job, so read the original version. What can I say, it's simply amazing. Thanks to author for not giving up and continue writting.

Wonderful! Thanks so much for writing this. I really enjoyed this plot and was pleasantly surprised at the outcome of the final battle. I particularly enjoyed your characterization of Voldemort, Fudge, Vernon and Petunia. Neville's plot was nicely done. I'm so pleased for both Longbottoms. They're formidable characters!
Some of the Voldemort scenes were hilarious! His one-way conversation with "the grim" and "feral werewolf" and his TV addiction were great highlights.
I can't wait to see what happens next with Petunia. All those scenes where she experienced discomfort were very satisfying, although I'm not 100% sure she related her experience to the years of hell Harry spent with the Dursleys. I had such high hopes for her when she befriended Amaranth, but when Vernon woke up, I felt her character regressed a little. Now, I'm curious as to what she will do.
I also congratulate you on the development of your writing style, in particular the use of snappier and more interactive dialogue.
Anyway, I'm super-grateful that you continued the Marriage Stone. Great job!

Good job on the final battle! You've put a ton of work into this story and you've done a very fine job with it. Did you stop posting updates on the yahoo site? I hadn't looked for anything for a long time because I was used to the update notifications. As I recall, there was a ton of spam coming through on that group. Anyway, glad to see you are writing again and finally pulling out of the damage done by that superstorm.

I'm so grateful that you haven't given up on the story. I can't wait to see how it ends. Thanks so much. I am still worried about the person that lead the death eaters through the wards.

This has been a delightful story. I hope you continue to write for those of us who love to read. I'm sure ms. Darcy would consider this a tribute to be proud of.

Great chapter! You did very well with Harry's duel :) Not too much drama but yet not a quick fix. I liked the way Severus contribution come to be of real significance and that Dumbledore chosed to tell everyone about it.
Now I long for the next chapter even though it's kind of bittersweet knowing that we are on the edge of this incredible story. One day I might even print every chapter so that I can read it pretending it's a real book :) I am curious about how many pages this story can cover ;) I know it will take a lot of ink at least - but so worth it to have the letters on paper ;)
