Wow! I was never so disgusted with Dumbledore in my life! Wonderful job, making him a complete and utter jerk! I won't even comment on Snape! Horrible people, messing with others lifes! The battle was amazing! Loved it! And Nathan going to Anna afterwards was... So sweet, so perfect! I want more!! And the twist at the end! :D Trust Harry to change the rules, lol. One of my favourite chapters all in all! Well done! Cathy

Author's Response: Yes, Dumbledore wasn't thinking all that clearly, was he? Snape is Snape - slimy as always. Harry changing the rules was my beta's idea - an a good one, too! Glad you liked it!

Chapter 19: Insurance

Loved Joanna... I'm sure a bond will do Neville loads of good, lol. Nice chapter, sweet and calm after the battle last time. Great job! I can't wait to see what will happen at christmas... I'm sure you have some nice plans, lol. Cathy

Author's Response: Neville deserves some goodness, doesn't he?! And yes, I have a really fun surprise for the Holidays. I have a feeling you're going to appreciate it!

Chapter 20: Fates

OHHHH!!! Poor Nathan!!! The shock! LOL I'm SO happy for them! I am too crazy for starting to think of ff characters as real people? Geez, I think I'm going nuts! Well, loved the way poor Nathan found out about Anna, and I can't wait to see the scene when it's just the two of them... I'm sure you'll have to put a fluff warning on that one, lol. Uhh, I loved the stories from Anna's time at Hogwarts, they were so perfect for christmas! One of my favourite parts this far. And last, but not least: I think Harry is starting to enjoy books! I thought it would never happen! Yay! Cathy (sorry if this review sounds a little crazy and without purpose... It's late and I'm sleepy, hehe) Ps: I think the conversation between DD and Firenze has a deeper meaning than just stars and christmas... But I'm too tired to try and figure it out, so I'll just wait for the story to tell me.

Author's Response: Hee, hee - no, not crazy at all. They live in my head, too! What a compliment - thank you! Harry enjoying books...well, sort of. More on that to come!

Chapter 21: Holiday Surprises
Reviewer: Lady of the Dragon (Signed)
AHH! Are you starting to take pleasure in torturing your poor readers?? What an absolutly horrible cliffy! That was downright evil, it was! But I loved the chappie anyway! :D I love the way the relationship between Joanna and Neville is developing, very realistic, and very sweet. Great job! And Anna and Nathan were, as always, perfect. I was right about the fluff warning, lol! So cute! Cathy

Author's Response: Hee, hee - for the record, I do not take (too much) pleasure in torturing my readers. I'm glad it had enough fluff in it - it was a truly fun chapter to write. Thanks!

Chapter 22: Holes
Reviewer: Lady of the Dragon (Signed)
Oh, the duel was GREAT! Really, really nice! I loved the fact that Harry only managed to really finish the stupid Slytherins off when Ginny was there. And the fact that he did it got me thinking... If together they have that much power, then the fight with Voldemort isn't relly at all hopeless (not that I thought it was, mind, but it was the first time they showed any incredible amount of power...). Sorry, I'm rambling, this chapter just got me thinking, you know... Wonderful!, Keep it up! Cathy

Author's Response: do my ego good. I wasn't very happy with this chapter, so it's nice to know you enjoyed it. Yes, that amount of power does lead you to think they might actually pull this off, eh? :)

Chapter 23: Anchors
Reviewer: Lady of the Dragon (Signed)
New OCs!! Lol, I was starting to miss them, you know, it was a long time since you presented us with any. I like Joanna's parents, they seem like nice people, worried about theit family. But I don't see the logic in taking Joanna away from the safest place there is... I love the deveoplment of Neville's and Joanna's relationship, is their bond going to affect the last battle? Just an idea that crossed my mind... I was wondering when Hermione was going to come up with the solution! It's always her, lol. Nice chapter, if a little lacking in action, I suppose they can't fight continually, right? Cathy

Author's Response: LOL - you were missing my OC's?! You're wonderful! :) Joanna's parents are simply thinking with their hearts - they want their children close by so they can hug them and look at them and make sure they are okay. It's that whole thinking with your heart deal - not always logical, but very well meant. And yes, of course Hermione had to figure it out - we would all be lost without her! Thanks!

Chapter 24: Simple

Bill was lovelly. Really, I love the way he has the big brother "thing" going on, but is still reasonable enough to know he can't stop them and that the best curse of action is to help them, be sure he did everything in his power to help Harry and Ginny suceed (sp?). This chapter had so many little touches that I loved, lets see if i can list them: fish and chips was adorable, nathan and Anna's glasses, Joanna and Bouncing Neville, Bill and Harry in the astronomy tower... I could go on, but well, I think you got the picture, lol. Can't wait for more! Cathy

Author's Response: I'm so glad you liked Bill - he is really just plain cool, isn't he? This was a favorite chapter of mine - it was one of those bantering ones that just sort of wrote itself. Glad you liked it!

Ouf, I finally managed to enter the computer again! I don't know what happened, but suddenly I was getting errors messages right and left, and was completly cut out from fanfiction for weeks. Torture!! So, this is why last chapter was lacking in reviews... just thought I'd explain, lol. Loved the chapter, as always. I'm glad the plot is finally set and there will be some action soon, I think... Old moldy tomb coming up soon, uh? Can't wait! Oh, and the comments to Bill's presentation: pure genius!! Keepi it up! Cathy

Author's Response: Cut off? For weeks? Eek gads! :) Computers make our lives easier, right? Glad you liked it! Yes, action is a coming- in fact, my favorite action scene to date in two chapters, I believe!

Chapter 27: Lady of the Lake

Lol, familly vacations... Aren't they fun? (well, for the first few hours they usually are,lol) I love your idea of Harry as a curse breaker, it feels as if you took it straight out of my brain (every time I think of Harry in the future I see him in some old tomb, under kilometers of earth) and in this chapter he finally got a bit pf first hand experience: I love it. The circlet was perfect... Amazing how everyone fir in perfectly, lol, the wonders of fanfiction, hehe. Well, I can't wait for more! Cathy

Chapter 28: Circlet
After a dementor attack in Hogsmeade, Harry offers Ginny some private lessons.

Lovely! *snif* this chapter just made me want to cry! Please, please update soon, you left us hanging so spectacularly! This story was very surprising, I had been expecting only light fluff, and there are suddenly a set of complications and plot twists to deal with... Very nice! Cathy
