My Harry Potter obsession is a bit of a contradiction to the rest of my life. I'm actually a Hasidic Jewish wife and mother with a deep passion for writing.

Every character is absolutely perfect here, Harry and Ginny above all, but I love Mrs. Weasley's gentleness, Hermione's advice, and what an ending with Harry and Ron!

Author's Response: Thanks!  I\'m so pleased you think so. I love Mrs. Weasley, and I can never resist throwing in a few "mum" moments for her. Harry needs them.

It's so nice to see Lavender doing something positive. She's a nice enough character, and Ron really was quite the jerk.

Author's Response: Thanks! I got the idea from Goblet of Fire, when Lavender was one of the few students to stay behind and help with the infamous Skrewts.

Interesting to see so many different interpretations of everyone's reactions to the break-up. Yours was the first resentful Ron I've seen, and I think you did him very well, especially his admission that he'd still stand by Harry no matter what.

Author's Response: That\'s good because I was a little unsure about the resentful Ron and thought a lot about changing him, so I\'m glad it worked. But, ultimately, Ron will always be loyal to Harry, no matter what.
