Yeah. You make me glad I bailed on this challenge, because you rocked this like woah! I'm so glad you did it! It took me a minute to calm down enough to read the fic after my initial excitement. So yeah, amazing job. I loved the... guh, the everything. Very nice writing on this, and a marvelously handled songfic (so many are overpowered by lyrics, but yours are complementary). One bit of crit is that the italics get a tad confusing, but since the lyrics are centered it's not too big a deal. Three cheers for this pairing! Haha. But seriously, rockin' job on this. I'm so thrilled you did it!

Author's Response: You shouldn\'t have bailed, but I\'m glad you liked it (yay for Wicked!)  The italics were a bit confusing?  Sorry about that...maybe later I can go through and add more breaks or something.  :)

“Have you ever known any of my photos to not turn out? Well, besides the one I tried to take of the basilisk.” This was so cute! You have Colin down perfectly, and it was sweet to see him with Orla. Interesting idea with the mental image translating into the physical image... that's really unique, and a cool thought. Nice job with this!

Author's Response: Thanks :) Actually, this might have been subliminally influenced by a local, independent film I did a story on, where a gent with insecurity issues looks in a mirror and sees an exaggerated reflection of his physical flaws. I know that the majority of us hate having our pictures taken, so I thought -- what would this do to magical film? Well, this is one possibility!

This was absolutely magnificent. You really captured his character - Harry's, I mean - and gave him a certain depth that so many fics lack these days. His drive was painted in a very honest way, and I loved the attention of his friends (Hermione in particular; you really have a great understanding of these characters). A couple little minor grammatical edits would polish this up just the tiniest bit more, but it's fantastic, truly. Thanks for this, and do take care.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I'm glad you liked the characters. I just can't see Harry as any other way when book 7 comes out. I mean, he can't have a life until he gets this done, wouldn't anyone try and get it done as quickly as possible? I'll reread it and check for those grammar things. Usually I'm good at catching them, but I didn't read this again before I posted. Thanks bunches!

“You dropped it pretty far, didn’t you?” Haha! Oh, this was cute! I love how canon you made it, and you completely rocked this missing moment. Your characterizations are really good... analytical!Penelope matches unsure!Percy very well here, although they did move a bit fast. Still, cute job and an excellent job with this challenge!

Oh, this is marvelous. I loved the Dursley interaction - ye gads, but you understand these characters! - and just about everything else as well. Thanks for this, and I eagerly await the next installment!

Author's Response: Thanks! I hope you continue to enjoy. I work really hard on the characterization, so I'm THRILLED you said that.

Very nice chapter. The announcement of the cupboard and Hermione's reaction in particular were great. Actually, I'd like to commend you on writing Hermione so well. She's the one you keep most in character, I think, and it's lovely to read. Thanks, and do take care!

Author's Response: Do you really? That's so nice to hear since I always think Hermione is the one I have the most trouble with. Thanks for the comments, I appreciate them.



Chapter 2: When One Door Closes

This was a marvelous chapter as usual! The wedding attack isn't a new idea, but you wrote it quite well. The dance partner section was extremely interesting, and I must admit my favorite line in the whole thing was this: "She was stunning, and he was lost."

 So perfect. Absolutely perfect. Marvelous job, and thanks for this!



Author's Response: Aww, thanks!  I\'m glad you pointed that line out, actually. I kind of liked it myself, hee.

Amazing. I will forever envy your ability to sew stories together realistically... your blending of hilarious and serious moments is so natural, and I very much admire it.

Wonderful chapter - the twins made me giggle, you do them well - and do update soon! Thanks so much for this, and take care!



Author's Response: Thanks so much, I\'m glad you\'re enjoying it. The twins are fun, aren\'t they?  I\'m very fond of the twins - I\'m glad they amused you.

OHMIGOD.

You're such a brilliant writer, author, whatever they're called, oh oh I'm incoherent, my brain is mush... this is so INTENSE.

Amazing, brilliant, marvelous. Amazing. I can't... ohmigod.

Fanfiction wins. This is completely ace. Dear god, never ever ever stop writing, okay? Okay.

This is brilliant. Sorry for the completely incoherent review.



Author's Response: Giggle!  What a great review, thanks!  I\'m glad you enjoyed it.



Chapter 6: Godric's Hollow

Amazing chapter. There are so many wonderful bits of this that I'd love to comment on, but that would take more time than I have right now. So, I'll just leave you with my favorite line:

"Both Ron and Hermione’s heads shot up from their discussion in the corner."

I love your details, the way you allude to so much more than you actually write. The mental image of them talking together while Harry and Ginny share a moment, but they're all so connected and it's so real and you can see you've made me incoherent again.

Details like that kill me dead. Brilliant job, and I eagerly await more.



Author's Response: Thank you!  I\'m glad you enjoy them. I do have a harder time writing Ron and Hermione than Harry and Ginny, and it\'s difficult trying to keep it from Harry\'s POV. I think he\'d tend to bolt if their conversation or interaction ever got too deep, lol.
