Hey! Since Battle of the Hearts is now officially over, and at the urging of many, many reviewers I have posted the first chapter of the sequel today, I'd like to take the time to do something I've been dying to do for so long, but never got the chance to do after about chapter 6 for fear of being reported for having too long of an Author Note: individually thank each person who reviewed. Now, it'll have to just be those who reviewed Chapter 12 (68 of you- I feel LOVED!) because anyone who reviewed earlier chapters and will possibly be reading this probably also reviewed Chapter 12. (Please, no one report this chapter cause it's totally against the rules to have just a chapter of an A/N: I'm risking the deletion of my story by doing this, but I fully trust you guys!)

I never dreamed when I began writing this fiction that it would receive such reviews and compliments...WOW! All I can say is THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to anyone who has ever reviewed this story for making the past nearly 3 months so wonderful for me here on So, iSo here's to all those wonderful, fantastic reviewers of Chapter 12- some who have been with me since the beginning, others who are newer but still great!

LadySimone123: What can I say, chica? You're one of my closest friends, and my #1 reviewer! I anxiously look forward to your comments on every chapter (by the way, girl, be happy I'm even including you because if you read in my little paragraph at the beginning, I'm really only thanking those who reviewed Chapter 12! Which YOU DIDN'T- yet! We will talk in school, chica. You ARE IN TROUBLE! LOL.) Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of your reviews and encouragement! Please DON'T MOVE OH SO FAR AWAY! Or else you'll have Twigster to answer to!

LaraPotter: Hola, chica! Your high praise (which I still don't deserve, cause I'm not that good of a writer!-) made me smile with each chapter. Rock on, oh loyal reviewer, and I'm glad you enjoyed my story so much!

suckr4romance81789: Wow! You've been there with me for almost every chapter, and your wonderful review on Chapter 12 especially was truly one of the nicest I've ever received. Honestly, it made me cry! (tears well up in my eyes). Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for being such a loyal, fantastic reviewer! And I would also like to wish the best of luck to you in whatever future writing you may do, and I'll be the first to read any new fiction of yours!

EponineWeasley: Another devoted reviewer- I knew I could look forward to one of your great reviews on every single chapter! Keep it up with your fabulous, angsty, writing, and I hope you'll stick around for the sequel to my fiction!

Miss Court-A-Doo: WOW! Your reviews were always the ones that meant the most to me- cuz you're such a talented, magnificent writer! (Not that all you other reviewers aren't!) Your comments and compliments always gave me much encouragement and hope- seeing as you're 5 years older than me, in college, and a fantastic writer, but still thought highly of my story! I'll never forget one certain review where you said that my "writing talent was indescribable," that "this is the most wonderfully fluffy, angsty, on-the-edge-of-confessions fic I've ever read in my entire life..." The best review I have ever received in my entire life! Best wishes for any future writing of yours- and please update "Confessions!"

milky way bar: Yes, unfortunately this fiction 'tis over. But never fear! The sequel is here! (Sorry- very cliché!). I'm thrilled that you enjoyed this story so much, and I hope you read the continuation of "Battle of the Hearts." Thank you to a loyal reviewer!

I AM EOWYN: I may consider your suggestion...you never know. Ron popping the question may come up eventually... Thanks to a devoted reviewer who also happens to appreciate fine literature such as Lord of the Rings! (Love your penname, in case I never told you that before!). Good luck in all your future writings.

Pauly-85: Oooh, that's a definite possiblitiy. (Smiles mysteriously). You never know! Thanks to a loyal, devoted reviewer- I'm thrilled you loved my story! ROCK ON!

DaughterOfKings: I'm happy you enjoyed my fiction for SO many chapters. I would like to wish you the best of luck in any of your future LOTR writings, (please continue with the poems- they're EXCELLENT!) and thank you for being a loyal reviewer whose opinion I valued highly!

One With A Constant Sugar High: I always loved the end of your reviews with the somewhat random sayings, (i.e., "In an attempt to kill a fly, I drove into a telephone pole."). LOL! Thank you for being a kind, devoted reader and reviewer for SO long!

Loku: WOW, that is a high honor! I'm glad you enjoyed my story so much, and I would like to thank you for giving great reviews to many of these chapters! I just read your profile and guess what? I have bushy hair too! And like yours, it's curly! I like to call it my high-management hair. LOL. (sighs) Those people with straight hair who make fun of my excessive volume? They're just jealous they having boring, flat hair! (No one get offended, please!). Thank you to the chica with an out-of-control bush like me!

goblin monkey: Thank you to a loyal, wonderful reviewer! I really appreciated your kind compliments and comments on each chapter- ROCK ON!

N.C.PysChick: I really appreciated your encouraging, somewhat humorous reviews- they made me giggle! Good luck in all your future writings (I apologize for not reviewing "The New Workout Plan," but it was FUNNY! Great job!) and thank you for being such a loyal, kind reviewer!

Alli-Baby: Chica, you have been there since Chapter 1 and for that, you deserve a ginormous cookie! (I believe you're the only one who's been with me since the beginning, back in February!). Thank you for your wonderful comments, oh LOYAL REVIEWER!

doodlebug19: Thank you for your praise! I too love reading fluffy Ron/Hermione romances- thus why I wrote this one! I hope you stick around for the sequel!

sakura: That's an excellent idea. I'm hoping that in my sequel I will get into more of a real plot- possibly even involving Voldemort! (shivers). Thanks for the great suggestion!

GreenEyes: Yeah, I had misgivings about Chapter 11 too- but I was finishing it at 6:30 in the morning so I could post it before I left for orchestra rehearsal, so that's my excuse for the unbelievablity of it (I really don't think Harry would break down like that either, but you have to admit that some day in the book he'll probably have to "crack"- no one can bottle up their emotions for THAT long of a time!) Thanks for great reviews! And yes, there will be tension between Ron and Hermione- you'll just have to read to find out! (cackles!)

hot4scott68: (Smiles!) I never dreamt that this story would be loved by so many- thanks for being one of the bunch and also an inspiring reviewer!

SafetyXpins: You will see what happens next by...reading the sequel! Wow! Two of your three favorite stories are mine! One of these days I'll have to update "Those Emerald Eyes," I reckon. THANKS!

AstaOmega11: I'm truly glad that you enjoyed my story- thanks for the great review and, if you please, stick around for the sequel!

rainydyz07 (sakura668): Yes, there will definitely be some action, adventure, suspense- the story is NOT all mindless fluff like this one was. I hope you did excellent on your AP tests (next year I'll be taking my first one!) I look forward to reading your fiction- please email me or notify me somehow when it's posted! Best wishes for your writing, and thank you for giving such sweet reviews!

Tria Marie Val: Thank you for your very kind review! Unfortunately, there will be no epilogue, just a sequel. Hopefully you'll enjoy it just the same!

emmadarling026: Wow! You actually sat down for 2 hours and read my story? That makes me feel VERY special! Teehee! Don't worry- I do have a great idea for the sequel- I just hope everyone likes it!

ShadowHexx771: YEA! Your review nearly brought tears to my eyes. I do reckon, however, that there is a better Ron/Hermione story out there somewhere, but I'll still accept the big cookie! Thank you very much for your sweet reviews!

kitottercat: I know- I was very surprised that my story got the large amount of reviews that it did! The problem is that there's so many stories on and not a lot of reviews to go around! Thanks to a loyal reviewer and a BIG, BIG fan! This review made me giggle. (i.e., "You're damn good at what you do.) LOL! I sincerely hope you enjoy the sequel, oh wonderful person!

waterfaerie15: Thanks! I wouldn't be TOO sure about that, but I appreciate it the same. Stick around for the sequel!

Lucy the Rat: Interesting penname, by the way. LOL! I'm glad you enjoyed my story so much, and thanks for the excellent reviews!

Orient Fox: Alas, it is done. Unfortunately, I won't be writing a Harry/Ginny sequel, but perhaps one of these days I'll write a Harry/Ginny humor/romance...thanks for the great review!
