I'm so glad you did. And I'm so glad that you're still with this story despite the long stretches between updates to it. Thanks bunches for that. And thanks for continuing to review, HarmMarie!

Review of chapter "Whole" from Angelfirenze
Review:
Yeah, this one was way too short, but - at the same time - the perfect length. I'm finding that part hard to explain. So happy to see an update for this one, period, though. There can never be enough.
Comments from author:
Update dedicated to you and your, I believe you refereed to it as "impetuous and bratty", insistence that I update in your last review. *laugh* I've been jumping around like crazy lately with what I write but your review made me think about this fic a lot - and Ginny in particular.

Glad you liked it and I'm happy the length was perfect (/sad it was too short) for you. *giggle*. Thanks so much for your continued feedback - it truly does push me to write a lot of times. So, again, thank you. :)

Review of chapter "Grand Insight Aside" from Angelfirenze
Review:
Right, update, now. I demand it. I am impetuous and bratty in my insistence. Because this perfection needs to go on.

Two typos, though: Ginny's full name is Ginevra. And wizards have cars, remember. The Weasleys were allowed to use one to take Harry and all their children to school that one year with Ministry permission. They just have magical accouterments, remember? Wider and more spacious on the inside while looking perfectly regular on the outside. That sort of thing.
Comments from author:
He he. Your bratty impetuousness delights me. I am sad to say though that it might be a bit before I update. I haven't abandoned this - I actually have a few pieces in the works - but I am doing the Wishlist this year and have 10 prompts to complete. That is on top of the Walking Dead crossover, Fringe, and Warehouse 13 fics that I am updating fairly regularly right now.

Busy busy. But, you've actually got my brain back in this universe now. Bah. bah.

I will definitely go and change Ginny's name. I have a problem with that sort of thing. I think I was doing the same thing with Godric Gryffindor earlier. Those sorts of names you don't use a lot. Although I think Ginerva is more common than Godric. :)

And with cars - it was my impression that cars were still seen as a Muggle thing. It is, after, all a purely non-magical piece of technology before you add magical add-ons. Maybe that wouldn't be the view by all, but I thought that pure blood families might have maintained that view. And didn't you always need specific permissions to make those accouterments? I thought Arthur got fined when people found out about the car because he hadn't got special permission to tinker with Muggle things...I don't know. I might be wrong in this or it might be one of those things they never flat out said specifically in the books.

Either way she probably wouldn't have much knowledge about hybrids. *laughs*

Thanks again for all your reviews. :)

Review of chapter "The Blood In Their Veins" from Angelfirenze
Review:
Right, so everything's amazingly fantastic and HOW DID YOU PULL THIS MASTERPIECE TOGETHER, BUT the spelling's getting hairy again, not to mention, this takes place in Europe, for the most part, but everyone talks like an American? I really don't get that.

Lastly, but never ever muchly - Andromeda is Teddy's grandmother, not great-aunt, remember? Hence her thoughts about Dora in the first place, and the further asides about Remus. I suppose I'll find out if the first Ted Tonks is ever mentioned between them when I keep reading.
Comments from author:
That's true. I don't know why in my head I thought of her as his great-aunt. *bangs head on keyboard* At least the nickname GrAndy works as his grandmother as well. Grandmother Andromeda - GrAndy. I think that still works. *sigh*

As for the American talking, I do apologize for that but being American it rather happened that way. I didn't want to equate Europe or British people to throwing in the word 'bloody' all the time, so I figured I'd just talk like it felt natural and that would be that. The only real thing I remember purposefully doing to make it regional was changing things to metric and shifting the school systems to European ones.

When it comes to Ted Tonks........well, I was actually about to write something out here but I think I just became intrigued. I might actually write a bit on that in the future. I haven't actually done an Andromeda POV yet.....

And thanks so much, yet again for your exceptionally kind words and taking the time to review.

Review of chapter "Grand Insight Aside" from HarmMarie
Review:
Loved this.
Comments from author:
Thank ya kindly, HarmMarie. Don't want you to think I'm just repeating this by rote since I said similar things in the other responses just now but I do apologize for the late reply. Real life hasn't been all that easy on me lately and I've been neglecting TTH and writing in general. Thanks again for the feedback though.

Review of chapter "Grand Insight Aside" from RAINXIA
Review:
Yay! Thank you for updating, i think about your story and your world a lot lately and literally squealed when i saw a new chapter.

I must say, i am writing a little Malfoy fic myself at the moment and reading this chapter almost brought me to tears, thank you for writing it. It hits all the big notes, the sadness, the pain, the regret of the war and their involvement but also the happiness and contentment. Made me recall why the Malfoy's are my favourite characters, especially thinking of the final movie that just came out.

It is just magnificent, i think i can say this a thousand times and still mean it, you have exceptional talent. Please, never stop writing because you capture emotions in the way of a painter, you make a painting with words. It makes me feel honoured to be a writer.

I can't wait till the next piece.
Xia.
Comments from author:
Goodness, it's been a while since you wrote this so I need to start out by apologizing for the belated reply. Life has been a bit challenging lately.

Your review was absolutely lovely though and it truly made me feeling baffled - in a totally good way. I've just always had a hard time thinking of myself as a good writer, or a writer at all really *laughs*. Thanks again for your kind words, Xia - I'm pleased you enjoyed it.

Review of chapter "Closure" from tals
Review:
Damn, that last chapter was painful to read. Poor Dennis. And poor Oliver. As always I'm deeply impressed with your way of conveying and understanding emotions.

Tals
Comments from author:
Thanks, tals. From the very beginning Dennis was this little ball of pent up bitterness and angst (and for good reason). And although he has grown over time, he hasn't become a completely different person. Poor Oliver just wants to make everything -better-, he thought they could have this talk and it would be painful but then everything would be -better-. Too bad Dennis never got that script.

As always, I am glad I was able to convey at least a bit of what was in my head onto the page(/screen) and I sincerely thank you for the compliment of it being painful to read. *laughs* Than means it worked.

And thanks for taking the time to comment Tals - I appreciate it.

Review of chapter "Closure" from MistofRainbows
Review:
So broken, so mangled as far as lives go in your fic. It's interesting to see a fic that has them holding together but so very broken at the same time. I have to agree with Lily, it's needed. :)
Comments from author:
It's rather odd when you look at it. You have a Community dealing with the impressions of two wars (the first of which people barely talked about because they didn't want to say the name of the main person involved out of superstition) and no real professional support system. I've never even been a huge proponent of having to go get psychological help in all situations - sometimes just talking things out amongst friends or family can work in my opinion. But, with all the stuff these people have been through....how could they not be effected, how could some of them not need a bit more help? Some people just aren't able to deal and that isn't anybodies fault. We've all heard of people who come out of war with PTSD and such.

Like I said, I'm no expert. And most of the people I write about here have been dealing the best they can, and they have gotten on with their lives. But some haven't let go of this stuff as much as others.

I'm terribly sorry, you wrote me a lovely review and I went on a bit of a tangent there. When I start typing it just gets away from me sometimes. :) Thank you very much for taking the time to comment, MistofRainbows, I really appreciate it.

Review of chapter "An Understandable Type" from Damia
Review:
I love the interplay between Ron and Hermione, how comfortable they are with each other but not in a bored way. I also really like that Ron is still a touch jealous because it was a big part of his personality. Of course I'm also very fond of men find smart girls hot, but then this is fiction. Oh well, lol, loved the update.
Comments from author:
I'm glad it read that way - comfortable but not bored, that is. At this point they've been married about two decades and known each other coming up on three, so there is definitely familiarity there. And I agree that Ron had always had a bit of jealousy (especially when it comes to Krum and Harry), even though he is grown I'm not sure that would completely evaporate.

As for guys who find smart girls hot, that seemed to be at least one of the main reasons why Victor was attracted to and sought out Hermione. And as it is such a huge part of who Hermione is, I figure Ron would appreciate as well. Plus, as you say, I am fond of such men as well. :)

Thanks for reviewing!

Review of chapter "The Blood In Their Veins" from RAINXIA
Review:
I think, as someone else said, the only way to describe this world is it makes you want to laugh with tears on your face. a perfect description.

I loved this chapter for the absolute realness of it, it just shows me yet again how talented you are. The GrAndy made me laugh, so cute. How he described V makes me love her even more, how sexy a photograph as well, you truly made me see it in my minds eye. The description did remind me of a pic i saw of Emma Watson recently though, odd!

I can't wait for more, maybe Teddy could become a photographer and take photos of her forever? it would certainly feed his obsession with his mate, or not..

I loved the last chap as well, so sad - poor Fred, she feels like she is losing herself while gaining an Identity, through growing up and setting her future, again so true. Happy that she hasn't forgotten that she does have a family. Xia.
Comments from author:
Yeah, that was HarmMarie (internet hugs) who said that she was quoting a bit from the end of the chapter 'Hopelessly Intertwined'. I'm glad you see the series that way though, I didn't know it was that intense to other people really. Honestly, that's how I often feel in life - you want to cry (probably should) but you just laugh instead because sometimes things are so shitty it's ridiculous and crying won't make it better. Sometimes laughing about horrible things makes them seem a little less horrible.

....sorry I think I just got a bit preachy/ranty on you there. *laughs*

Oh, GrAndy. I came up with that back in the last chapter of the first set of drabbles. I thought it would feel weird for Teddy to keep calling someone like Andromenda, Grandma. So it kinda went from Grandma Andromeda - Granny Andy - GrAndy.

....again, way too much information probably. Might as well continue with the trend, huh?

I haven't seen the pic of Emma Watson, but that does surprise me because I thought she got her hair cut short or something...Anyway, I'm glad I wrote it in a way that you could clearly picture it.

Also, I don't think I will make Teddy a photographer. I just set him up in this chapter as getting into music (I think Oz tainted me and I now think all werewolves must play an instrument) - I don't really want to jump him to a different career when I still have everyone else to deal with. And I think we have enough of the group tied up with Pansy's company now *laughs*. Plus, I have an idea where his interest in music will take him....

And Fred had her family/friends, if she keeps them close they will keep her grounded. She is always going to question her identity a bit (how could she not) - but her life is different in key ways.

So, glad you liked it. Thanks for the lovely lovely review. And I apologize for writing such a long response here - I really hope you don't mind.

Review of chapter "The Blood In Their Veins" from Damia
Review:
Have i ever mentioned how much i adore V? She is simply fabulous.
Comments from author:
I do love my Veela girls. *grins* You have Fleur, Gabrielle, and V - all of whom I find awesome -and- I attempt to make distinctive in my universe. I'm glad V is getting love though, when I shortened her name and shaped her personality I wasn't sure how people would take it - same with all the younger batch I suppose. So, I'm glad you like her! :)

Thanks for taking the time to review, Damia.

Review of chapter "Hopelessly Intertwined" from HarmMarie
Review:
This chapter was perfect. It made you want to laugh with tears on your face.
Comments from author:
I'm glad I got it right then. I don't think her identity is something that will ever be quite solid for Fred, but I don't want it to be something that is always on her mind - always tormenting her. She has her own life and similarities don't mean duplication.

Thanks, as always, for taking the time to review HarmMarie. :)
