Poor kid; she's going to have more names than Dumbledore!
Thank you for this story. It has done an excellent job of making am improbable premise and making it work.
I hope that you have had the opportunity to enjoy becoming a grandparent. However grands are made, not born, and many children of surrogate grandparents benefit greatly from the experience. I keep telling that as I babysit my grand-dogs.
All the best wishes, Books.

I have a favourite line from your story it made me laugh so much;
Going naked in the sun sounded great, until those dangly bits were burned to a crisp.

That was a really interesting story. It certainly had its fair share of action. Thank you! There were a few chapters that threw me off at first but everything made sense in the end. I think going back and reading it a second time will be my next option. I will admit to liking the ward building / breaking and the romance over the mpreg and birthing scenes, but I enjoyed the whole thing. Thank you for sharing!

This is an intriguing story! Love your characterizationis and cannot wait to read more - but I have other work to do that I have sadly neglected for too long, as this was so bewitching!

"What rose from the ground was amphomous," the last word should be "amorphous" as in: formless. I know this is Really Late, but I just spotted it now while I was re-reading some of my favourites. :-) Eden

Bahahaha! OMG Lily made the toy 'real'! What a determined child. I'm happy this fic was rec'd to my group. It was an unusual, fun and unique read.

Holy moley! This kid has so many names! More last names even than first names haha! That many pieces in here, she can only be Ravenclaw (or, you know, maybe I want her to be Ravenclaw lol)
I love that Harry knows anyway and got to meet Snape in Purgatory :)

Did anyone take a picture of Skeeter being arrested? OOOh, I hope someone took a picture!

The idea of such a trunk is AMAZING! I LOVE it! Great way to end chapter 1! :)

Honestly, this was an amazing story. I was hoping Nash would be Severus from the very start (well, he's not exactly Severus, is he?- I wish we got a bit more of the real Nash, but I'll take what I've gotten!) The story was cute! (that's totally a compliment, by the way), and I loved Harry in it, or should I say Brian?
Can't wait to read more of your stories, and I think it's kind of awesome that your not writing a sequel because this just feels like the perfect ending for the story. Sometimes people end too quickly or keep going on, but this was absolutely perfect.

The A23 would have huge gap... you've located your story in Essex and the A23 is in Sussex.

I have just started reading this, on the recommendation of Zarathustra, whose stories I greatly enjoy.
However, I feel I need to 'get something off my chest' before continuing. The introductory 'blurb' about BeST and this amazing team of betas and authors seems to be asking for trouble. Only half way through the first paragraph I note the American spelling of curb (Brit: kerb) followed by the British usage of the word 'boot' to describe the luggage compartment of a car. Americans would say 'trunk'... so, a bit of consistency might be helpful. Is this story using an American idiom or some other?
Shortly thereafter, I stumble across 'birds nest-haired teenager'... nest-haired... and this has been beta'd by a fearsome punctuation expert?
On a content note ... Kilbridie has a definite Celtic feel about the word... Essex is in and around London... misleading the reader into thinking we are out in the wilds of Scotland before clarifying that we are in peri-urban England. I did a mental double take and had to re-read the paragraph when I realised the setting had changed entirely from the impression created at the beginning.
To be honest, I wouldn't normally bother making such an extended critical comment; this is fanfiction and people write and read for personal satisfaction. But when a writer sets themselves up as being a cut above the run because of the fantastic beta team I sort of expect the obvious errors one finds all over fanfiction to have been eliminated. To be fair, even Zarathustra has a fair smattering of misplaced or missing apostrophes and they're/their errors.
To steal a metaphor I once heard, your profile pages write cheques that your written language doesn't seem able to cash, irrespective of the brilliance of the plotline.
