Author's Response: Hey, Ron isn't angry with them for dating, otherwise he'd be talking to Hermione. You've missinterpreted what's wrong. He's angry at them for lying to him, deceiving him if you will. He thinks that they've been secretly dating again all summer, and that Hermione was told about it, but not him, which would really hurt him as Harry's best friend. He'd feel cheated and betrayed by his three closest companions, hence the over-reaction, it's not meant to be Ron acting stupid, just Ron acting as Ron, like in GoF. And no, he's not going to come back when Harry saves his life, but I'm not saying any more on that, you'll have to wait and see ...
Author's Response: Thanks! I have been trying to keep this story as plausible as possible, so I havn't made up too much. Most of the material I used was in the books, although I had to take some liberties with Harry's coming of age. I hope you enjoy the rest of the story as much as the start, and that I don't disappoint your hopes. If there's anything you think I can improve, don't hesitate to tell me.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review, but I'm going to have to disappoint you (sorry!). I'm going to try and have Harry deal with Voldie with no new powers, nor any new major characters. I see HBP as being the 1st half of the final book, so there aren't going to be any radical additions to the plot in this fanfic, as I'm trying to keep it as close to canon as possible. I have made up a few spells (because there are nowhere near enough complex spells mentioned so far), but that's about it. I'm sorry, but if you're looking for a power-Harry fic, you're looking at the wrong story.
Author's Response: Yeah, I am. Hi to you too!
Author's Response: Thanks Zayne, I was pretty surprised that I'd already got a review. I couldn't believe how fast that was! Anyway, I posting the rest of the chapters right now, there are 21 so far, and I hope to add no.22 soon. Anyway, enjoy!
