I have been reading your stories from the beginning and just wanted to take a minute to let you know how much I absoultely love them. I think you are a wonderful writer and i look forward to every updater. I would love for you to continue this story into Harry's Eighth Year at Hogwarts

Wonderful as always!

I loved it when people like you are sensible and remember that there is a choice, that we don't have to do stuff just because a prohpecy says so. Very good reasoning!

What a wonderful chapter! It's a joy to see Severus as such a supporting, sympathetic parent - and you made it absolutely believable and staying in character. The explanation about "being normal" and "leading a normal life" for Harry is splendid, as is the analysis of Harry's actions and decisions regarding that hero-question. And then finally seeing Harry acting like he did - wonderful.

Wow. Just incredible (as always). Emotional, and you'be really captured the beauty of healing...Are you planning on another fic after this? It's so beautiful, I don't want to see it end...PERSONALLY, one thing I've always been fascinated by is what happens in a 'normal' year - what happens in class, in Quidditch, in the dorms etc beyond the drama - something JK (not suprisingly) didn't spend much time on...Even showing some highlights from that would be magical to me - especially how the new '8th Year Dorm' works out...Anyway - thanks for another beautiful chapter :)

""It wasn't only your war, Harry," said Severus softly, so that only Harry could hear. "It wasn't only your fight."
And Harry, buoyed by the promise of Quidditch and new first years, kissed by babies and middle-aged women, cooled by Fortescue's ice cream and warmed by Ginny's hand in his own, knew that Severus was right. That his words were true.
But he could not help think of Colin Creevey, and what he had left behind. And he wondered, could not help but wonder, what normal felt like these days in the Creevey home.
"Dennis! Dennis! See that boy down there? The one with the black hair and glasses? See him? Know who he is, Dennis?"
The boy who lived."
that was particularly awesome. and tear inducing. but mostly awesome. i also love how harry is uncomfortable with the idea of being a hero. i think true heros usually are. still love getting your updates, sad to know this is coming to a close soon. you do good work. )

You make me cry like no one else! Amazing chapter.
| katesari chapter 15 . 3/31/2012
I like the chapter and the serious talk at the beginning of the chapter between Harry and Severus. Hope to read more soon! Bye

Lovely, brilliant, previous review(s) still standing. Wonderful. :))
| Snarky64 chapter 15 . 3/31/2012
Yet another poignant chapter, and Severus pushing Harry to take control of his destiny. I love your writing and I hope you can be prevailed upon for an eighth year, large canvas work, as it were. I hope so.
| funniefriend1245 chapter 15 . 3/31/2012
Great chapter! I liked how we got the way that Harry saw the kids - although I wish there were a couple more specific examples. Ah, well; it was still a very enjoyable chapter, and I want more soon! :)
| Romulus chapter 15 . 3/31/2012
You made me cry at the end there. I don't cry on fiction. Impressive achievement.
| cm0011 chapter 15 . 3/31/2012
I miss your chapters :) I'm glad you were able to write one.
This brought on alot of mixed feelings, all positive in the end. Severus, although it almost doesnt seem like it, had to use a little bit of tough love for Harry to understand that he wasn't just a pawn, and that he decided to fight the war to the end himself. Severus' speeches are so touching :) and just imagining the way Harry would have treated the little kids that came up to him... Awe :')
As selfish as I am, I can't help hoping you'll continue with just one more story, about Harry's eighth year :') you have already shown how wonderful you are with creating original material, and you've introduced quite a bit you can use for it :D it is your choice ultimately, but just letting you know you have a fan who would love to read on eighth year story ;)
Can't believe the story is almost over :( loved the chapter!

I found my heart aching so for Harry throughout the entire chapter. Trying to figure out "normal" and facing the outside world again. And the Creeveys at the end. *sniffles* It was definitely one of those "tug hard at the heart" chapters I adore so very much.
You've got it in you to write the eighth year. I know you do. ;)
