I have to admit this story was very sad. Poor Gideon falling for Marlene and not even being able to go and introduce himself. If not for his brother prompting him.
I like how you describe their relationship and how it evolved. From their first kiss, to his nephews being born, and Gideon realizing that he has to step it up, and ask Marlene to marry him, to the night Marlene dies.
Gideon sounded so sad when he was at Marlene's grave talking to her. The last line in the story I think is that saddest of the whole story. Both of them together, under the starts.

I don't know who to feel sorrier for Severus getting Minerva as the secret Santa or Minerva having Severus as the secret Santa. Poor Severus he truly is not a people person, and cannot stand having to do this at Christmas. He can't even decorate his ginger bread man properly.
I like that fact that he had to follow Minerva around to try and figure out what to get her for Christmas. I love that he got her the catnip because she loves being in her Animagus form so much. And really couldn't his secret Santa get him something besides shampoo! Severus is right that joke is already.
Poor Severus he can't even get a poor smile together to give his gift to Minerva, but I also thought that the gingerbread woman was a very nice touch at the end.

Oh. My. God.
That was wonderful and sad and depressing all at the same time. First you had me smiling and then almost crying...jeez.
I suppose the pairing is depressing 'cause they both die in the end. But oh well. Sometimes the best things in life are depressing (Look at Edgar Allen Poe!)
Anyway, that was lovely and I loved it. :)

That was so sad, poor Sirius losing Lily because he cannot say that they are a couple. That is just like Sirius so afraid of commitment that he rather lose the girl he loves instead of saying that they are a couple.
Neither Sirius nor Lily is willing to tell their best friends that they are seeing each other, and ultimately this and Sirius issue is what leads to their never being a couple.
And of course it is up to Remus to clean up his mess yet again. He has to tell his friend that he and Lily will never be a couple again. Sometimes is sucks to be a best friend.
And of course that fact that Lily would see Red Breasted Robins at random place in her life, I think that was Sirius sending them to her. Wishing he could be with her.
P.S. As for requests, you have already written so many of my favorite couples/pairings, how about one more? How about Frank & Alice Longbottom?

Agh! I haven't reviewed in forever! Sorry, though I have been reading.
I liked the Sirius/Lily but it was sad how it ended. Lily and Sirius would be cute together. Oh, and the first line made me laugh. "hearing the deep exhales of his sleeping friends...and Wormtail." Poor Wormy!
Mmm...how about a Marlene McKinnon/Gideon Prewett one? (I love that pairing so much. :)

brilliant series, do you think you could write something fluffy involving Severus and Minerva and maybe some catnip?
| Pandas Cousin chapter 21 . 12/22/2011
Aww, you are cute despite making me upset about my fave shipping :(
Oh well. Thanks cus (correct spelling of it) and, as requests are still open, may I ask for a Helena Ravenclaw/Bloody Baron one. If you do Founders, that is
Love you xxxxxxxxx
- your 'fantabulous' cousin

I love this story. Draco & Astoria are my 2nd favorite pairing. I love how you you describe Draco in the begining of the story as a "selfish prick". I always thought that Astoria love is what would change Draco. And of crouse to show it to her he bought her the nicest gift ever. Cute & lovable.
I really like your descripion of the gift. I can see it from how you wrote. Astoria reaction is great too. Poor Astoria only got Draco a blender, and snog him to make up for it. But of course the best part is the ending when they say "I love you" to each other. Always very nice to hear that from the one ou love.

Ah Poor Teddy. No matter what anyone tries he still misses his parents. Harry dressed as Santa was very funny especially the children reaction to it. I really like the interaction between Harry & Ginny while she says she hates beards. Very funny! Hey if I was going to die too, and I just saw the love of my life I would kiss him too. Beard or no beard.
Harry's talk with Teddy was also very good. After all both of them lost their parents at a very young age. If anyone can relate to Teddy it would be Harry. It's nice to see that harry was able to get a real smile out of Teddy in the end.
This is a very sweet story about Teddy and the problems he would have with Christmas & missing his parents.

OMG! This story is so incredibly sweet. Who can not relate to having a crush on someone, and hoping they will say "yes" to you asking them out? Neville's idea of a teddy bear was so good. Hermione was completely taken with it, and poor Neville not being able to get the words out to say "be my date". But the best part of this story was the fact did not laugh at Neville or hurt his feeling more. Poor guy was already in bad shape. All of us have been in Neville's position. Glad Hermione pointed him in the right direction of Hannah Abbott.
This is truly the best chapter after chapter 5 (Candle), and only because chapter 5 is of my favorite couple (Sirius & Ginny)
Waiting for the next update!
P.S. If you are still taking suggestions; how about Draco & Astoria?

Oh gosh! I didn't think you'd actually DO it- but it's nice :)

I love this chapter! Poor Narcissa have to live in such a gothic & dark home, but having the bright thought of decorating it for the Holidays. And Lucius getting home after a long day at the Ministry to find his home being decorated so cherry for Christmas by his wife who is slightly drunk.
I wonder if Lucius know that read & green are Christmas colors, not the colors of the Hogwarts when to comes to Christmas decorating. And where is his Christmas spirit wanting to hang Dobby's head on the doo instead of the reef. I know he is a Death Eater and all but still show some spirit. But I am glad to see that in the end he let Narcissa throw some tinsel around. I always thought that Lucius loved Narcissa more than people realized, and the fact that he let her decorate the mansion for Christmas just proves it more.
P.S I'm sorry that I got the fact that you had "broken up" wrong. I thought you meant with your boyfriend. It never occurred to me you meant school. Sorry I got that wrong. As for your wrist, have you tried putting heat on it & then cold or something like Tylenol to ease the pain?

Ahhh! It was cute! Let me see...hmmm...another pairing...I really don't know- unless you repeat, or do a really unpopular pair like...Neville and Hermione O.o
This story is adorable, and it makes me want to make a one shot for my own HP story...it's an OC/Draco...but I don't know...I already wrote the story and stuff...hmmm...
Sorry for my rambling! xD
