Hey Julie!

Fabulous story! I really loved the dynamic between Hannah and Freddie, and Al and Sophie were so cute! Great job, there are still a few typos here and there but nothing that distracts from the quality of the story itself.

Keep writing

Author's Response: Hi Shay!

Thank you so much! Hannah and Fred were so fun for me to write.

heh, yeah, there are a glaring amount of typos in this story that will probably never get fixed. I am very aware lol.

Thanks so much for reviewing!

How did I just find this story?! Fred and Hannah are an amazingly realistic couple and your writing style is hilaious! I could not stop reading this story over the past few days and I'm definitely going to go check out some of you other stuff right now. So glad I read this story :)

Review #4, by ScorpiusRose17 Hogsmeade Station

31st July 2015:

This has been such a wonderful story and I am so happy to see it come to it's completion and so proud of you for seeing it through to the end. All the the ups and downs your characters went through were ones that I could relate to and made me reflect upon as I read what they were going through. All of us have been here at some point in our lives in more ways than one and it really opened my eyes.

Thank you so much for sharing Hannah, Fred, Al, Sophie and all your wonderful characters with me. I don't think I've read another story on HPFF that has made me feel the many emotions that your story has.

Could there possibly be another Hannah/Fred story in the future? I would sure like to think so!! :)

Review #5, by ScorpiusRose17 Not With a Fizzle

31st July 2015:
Hi again!!

Not with a Fizzle, but with a Bang! :)

So I am totally excited right now about the ending of this chapter, but I am totally sad that the next chapter is the last chapter.

I love how this chapter started. I liked how you characterized Rose as a strong, but still has emotions type character. She evolved really well from the weepy girl from the earlier chapters due to the many ups and downs caused by Hannah and the vile Scorpius. So it was great to see her really come full circle.

Oddly one of the most wonderful moments of this chapter was when Hannah made peace with Delilah. I like seeing the confident, honest, yet still goofy Hannah compared to the unsure, secretive Hannah from when the story began. While I am sure she still has her insecurities, by this point they are back burner issues. She knows what she wants and she knows how she feels.

I was exceedingly angry at Malfoy. I just couldn't believe how vindictive he could be. It's not like Hannah or Rose were his property, but he was just so upset for being humiliated. I was worried about Hannah and Fred as soon as she mentioned something about Scorpius at breakfast and how she couldn't shake the feeling she had.

The ending of this chapter... pure joy. I mean seriously Julie, you couldn't have ended it on a better note than this. We saw them as just friends, nervous around one another does he/she like me, then they get more involved, angry doesn't begin to describe what they go through and the hurt they feel, to making up and sharing this wonderful moment here where they finally tell each other that they love the other. All be it the circumstances are awful because of Malfoy.

I loved it and I cannot wait to read more of your stories!!

Review #6, by ScorpiusRose17 Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Tests

31st July 2015:
Hi Julie!!

I am finally made my way back to the archives and forums after another hiatus and realized that I hadn't finished reviewing or reading your awesome story!!

I loved this chapter!! I really liked how you gave some insight to the N.E.W.T.S testing and really it doesn't seem to differ too much from the O.W.L.S except for maybe more in depth practical's and obviously more dangerous things like the inferi. I enjoyed getting to see what it was like though Hannah's eyes though.

I was so very mad at Scorpius in this chapter. I just wish he knew what no means! I loved how he cowered in gear when Hannah raised her wand! She's got such a spark to her that just draws you in as a reader. She really makes me wish I was as brave as she is in this chapter. Especially when she tells Rose what has been going on. I am relieved for Hannah because of the burden she had been carrying around and the strain it put on her relationship with not just Fred, but with everyone of her friends, family. Without her really realizing it until now.

Oh Rose... you make me smile at your calm, deadly demeanor... do NOT make a Weasley mad... Yes, Hannah is severely lucky Rose responded the way she did. The change in Rose throughout this entire story has been so evolving. She just finally had enough and let it out regardless of the exams! I am over-the-moon excited for how Hannah immediately told Fred about what was going on. It made me so happy to see their relationship mend.

You're such a good writer and I cannot wait to read more!!

Oh and you changed your name too!? Crazy! I like it! :)

I loved this story! I couldn't put it down! I completely ignored all duties today finishing it:) I loved Hannah. She was such a great protagonist. Fred was so cute. I love them together. I'm so glad that Malfoy was put in his place. What a little twit. Well done :)

Author's Response: hahaha, I definitely know that feeling, ignoring real life to read :p But yay! I'm glad you liked this story! I really loved writing Hannah, and Fred as well. Hehe, I had to pull a legally blonde and give Scorpius his sad ending. Thank you so much!

Review #8, by MalfoyMannor Hogsmeade Station

28th May 2015:
So this fanfic was one of the first ones I read on the site that I loved and now I'm going to reread it again cause it was just so well done :)

I loved how you didn't need to make it super dramatic or super romantic and that you made it sweet with humor :)

I loved how you made me love Hannah and Fred and cringe when their relationship took it's turn but then made me love it in the end when they patched things up :)

Author's Response: Ah, thank you so much!

Haha, this was my big one, and I'm so glad to hear you still like it after all this time.

I had to give them a happy ending. I feel like they learned so much throughout this story and they deserved it.

Thank you so much for your continued love of this story!

Review #9, by magnolia_magic An Overcrowded Ride

31st December 2014:
Julie! Here for the hot seat, and I'm so sorry I missed the first round! I'm working on catching up though :) I'm so glad I got the chance to get back to this story. I know you're working on other things by now, but this has been on my reading list for WAY too long. It's nice to get back into the swing of it.

And such a great second chapter! Haha, there are so many teenage hormones going on here that I don't even know what to do with it all :P Hannah's voice continues to be so adorable and fun to read, and I have a feeling she's going to turn out to be a hot commodity among all her male friends. I mean obviously the Scorpius thing (which I'll discuss later), and I'm thinking there's something happening with Fred as well. Their little awkward moment on the train was very telling :) And at this point I could even see Albus throwing himself into the mix, and the three of them might just fight melee-style over Hannah. Is that a bold prediction? OH WELL. I'm sticking with it. No matter who it ends up being, Hannah is eventually going to have to negotiate her multiple love interests, I think. And normally that kind of plot line feels a little tired for me, but with Hannah I'm not even mad about it. Because she is just so darn likeable and humble. You really are doing a great job with her. I feel like I could listen to her narrate the most mundane things and it would still be an enjoyable read :)

Aside from all the hormones, I'm glad to see the plot start to move. The announcement of the tournament is intriguing, and I'll be interested to see how it affects the tight friendships you've established between the Gryffindors. These things have a way of testing bonds between friends, and I have a feeling that most of your characters have a competitive streak. I'm looking forward to seeing how that all plays out!

And the Scorpius thing! This guy. I can't decide how I feel about him right now. At the moment it seems like he genuinely feels regretful that Hannah is hurting, but he's handling it in the exact wrong way. Stringing Hannah along (and Rose, for that matter) is going to result in a lot of confusion and hurt feelings, and I hate to see that happen because I like all of your characters so much.

Side note: I really love that you aren't making Rose a villain here. Even though she's with Scorpius, she and Hannah are still pretty much friendly. Great handling of that delicate situation so far.

Oh goodness, what else? There's so much going on in this chapter, and so many characters fleshed out, that it's hard to choose what to talk about! Sorry if this review is a little sporadic, by the way. It's late and my thoughts are not as "together" as they normally are. So I'm a little rambly :(

Anyway. Sophie is precious :) She seems like a great foil for Hannah's energetic personality, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of her. I'm already shipping Sophie and Albus so hard! Their little exchange over dinner was too cute, and I can totally identify with her schoolgirl crush. In fact, I feel like Sophie's personality is going to be really similar to mine all around, which will be fun to read :)

Great job! I'm so excited for you that you've finished this novel--that's such an awesome achievement! I hope to make time to read on very soon :) Happy hot seat day, and I hope you have fun with the review-bombing :D


Author's Response: Hey Maggie!

Okay, so first off I want to apologize for how monumentally long this review has taken me to reply to! It was just so beautiful I had a hard time coming up with an appropriate response!

The teenage hormones were one thing that was really fun to write through this whole story. I'm working on something new right now where they come into play big time and it's very fun to look back at.

You definitely don't have to like Scorpius :p

I think one of my biggest things when I went back and looked at this was to not have her be the "villian", but to focus more on the fact that Hannah likes a boy that is Rose's boyfriend.

Ah, I can't even begin to thank you enough for this super lovely and amazing review! Thank you thank you!!

Review #10, by ScorpiusRose17 No One Does That

16th September 2014:
Finally they are friends again!! Those last chapters were rough. I felt bad for Hannah and I felt bad for Fred because I can totally understand where they are both coming from. The banter between them is just... there are no words to describe it! I love them. They make you laugh, they make you cry, they make you believe that they are real and that is the genius to not only them, but to you! :)

I am happy to see that they are still annoying Albus. :) Especially when Quidditch interrupts study time for the big exams. Also when they sneak out and Rose and Scorpius are patrolling. He knows they are there and yet, if you look at it you can see the annoyance in Rose it is very subtle or maybe it is just me? Someone like Scorpius who should be perceptive considering his parentage, is neglectful in catching this tiny little trade off between them. They annoyed me and it just doesn't feel right between them (R & S) Maybe it is because I know Hannah is going to spill the beans or at least I hope she does to Rose about Scorpius.

I cannot wait to see how this is going to end! I really have hopes for certain things and I know with you letting the characters guide you instead of being forced out, it's going to be great!


P.S. Sorry I have been away so long!

Author's Response: JENN YOU'RE HERE! *hugs* You have no idea how happy I was to see your name pop up! It's so good to hear from you!

:D They are! aw, thank you! I love them a lot. They're very fun to write.

haha.. It wouldn't be Hannah and Fred without annoying Albus.

Yes! Rose is very subtle about it, but it's a mix of annoyance and stress from exams. Scorpius is (obviously :p) pretty competitive and wants to win. And so catching someone out after bedtime would just be an excuse for Slytherin.

I'm so happy you came by! This made my day to see your name come up! I love hearing your opinions because you always pick out those little things that I try to push subtly in there. Thank you so much dear! Hope to see you around more!

Review #11, by Justanother_REGULUS_dream Hogsmeade Station

2nd September 2014:
Thank you for finally ending this story.
It's been great waiting to see when it was published and I look up to you as a writer. I don't think I'll ever be quite as good as you because you're really great with details and whatnot. I would love to read other things from you so please keep writing. Alright, I'm gonna end this review because I've never been one for writing long ones anyway. But thanks, it's a great story.

Author's Response: Wow.. I don't even know what to say.

Thank you so much for sticking with me. It's such an honor to hear such kind things.. I'm sort of at a loss! I have something new I've started so hopefully soon :) Really though, I can't say thank you enough for the kind words and the kind reviews over the years. They mean so much to me! I don't know what else to say.. If you ever want to talk about writing and what not PM me on the forums! Thank you again♥

Review #12, by s.w Not With a Fizzle

30th August 2014:
Epilogue! Only one to go, so excited that you're finishing this story. Thank you so much! I love this story and all the characters (except maybe Scorpius) would like to see who wins the House Cup and the end of Hogwarts for Sophie, Al, Hannah, Fred and Rose. But I'd like to see a "something years later" section. I would love to know what happens to all the characters!! I'd like to have all the questions answered at the end xx

Author's Response: Me too! It's been a very long time coming. hee, you aren't supposed to love Scorpius ;) he's kind of a.. butt.

:D You are very close to being on target for the epilogue. It's not so much a few years later, but it does give (I think, at least) a nice little close to all of the characters that we've come to know and love (or loathe).

thanks so much for reading!

(and maybe in the future we'll get somewhere down the road ;) )

UGH UGH UGH UGH, you wound me.
This is was pretty eventful. Wow I didn't expect any of this.
Epilogue next geez. I'm gonna be sad when this is over.
Will you continue writing? Or are you done?

Author's Response: Aw, I don't want to wound you! It all ended up being okay! But I'm glad to hear you were surprised by it!

I'm very sad and happy it's almost over. It's a very bittersweet feeling.

As far as I have planned yes. I'm working something for another fandom as I'm writing this answer, but as soon as I'm done with that I have another story in the plot bunny stage that I'm pretty excited for, and I may take another stab at Triple Chocolate Frog, since I loved the idea for that so much.

Thank you so much for sticking things out with me!

Please please please put your hermione/george fic back up, I loved it so much and I actually started crying today because I can't read it anymore, like actual tears.

Please with cherries on top put your hermione george one back or else I will like cry a river and then you my friend will have to build an arch, and uploading the story just seems easier to me because it was perfect how it was and just please and I love you and thank you

Ahh, I can't decide between being happy that they're friends again or sad because this is the last updated chapter!! Amazing story, in case it wasn't obvious I absolutely adore all your characters and the amazing ideas. You write so smoothly and should be really proud of this! I'm not sure how often you update, but I'll definitely keep an eye out for that ferret-munching Hippogriff scurrying across the recently updated page!!! :) Thank you for writing such an entertaining and engrossing story!!!

Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much for this very kind review! I'm so happy to be able to respond to you and tell you that I have a new chapter coming! So don't be sad! Anyway, thank you for the nice things about the characters, I really love them too, and am very excited that this story is going to (finally) get the ending it, and all of its readers deserve. (I feel like batman. not really.) thank you again!

Review #19, by Lululuna Everte Statum

8th May 2013:
Grr, now I think Fred is being a little immature by not even giving Hannah a chance to explain herself. I mean, they're wizards... couldn't she take some Veritaserum... or show him the memory of that night they broke up in the Pensieve... or something?!

Haha, I loved the scene with the Potters, especially Lily being embarrassed of her parents. Too good!

The last task was amazing, it was so detailed and well-thought out! I loved it. As for your questions, I'm happy Teddy won, it would have been too easy if Al just won everything I think. And I really like Teddy, he's a stand up type of Slytherin guy, and definitely deserves better than how Emmy is treating him! Oh well, they all are still young after all! Another great chapter! :)

Author's Response: He's very hurt, and he definitely knows how to throw it right back at her. Ooh, she could practice her memory charms! But that'd be too easy ;)

haha! Poor Lily, having a famous dad is NOT all it's cracked up to be.

Oh, good! I'm glad you liked it! Yeah, I think Teddy really needed the mood booster, and I very much love him as a sort of 'not all Slytherins' type of guy. We'll see if anything happens soon, or if Emmy will forever ignore him... :D

Thank you again! It's been such a pleasure replying to these; I really do appreciate it!

Review #20, by Lululuna Separate Detentions

8th May 2013:
NO!! Well, I did kind of see this whole mess coming, but still, it was so heartbreaking to read it! Poor Fred, I feel so sad for him since he's the only really innocent one in this situation. I feel bad for Hannah too, losing her boyfriend and breaking her wand in one evening (not to mention the Thestral business). However I do think it was very realistic how she didn't just stop liking Scorpius the second she got together with Fred: feelings don't fade that quickly, and I think it was very believable how this all went down. But still sad. Amazingly written chapter however, as per usual! :D

Author's Response: It had to happen. She liked Scorpius for such a long time, like you said, (I seriously have loved responding to these. You pick up on like.. all the little between the lines things and it makes me so happy that things are going through) feelings just don't go away overnight or because you start dating someone else.

I feel so bad for Freddie. I think since they started being more than friends that's been one of his worst fears; he's seen the way she's liked Scorpius for years and it hasn't been pleasant to watch. To walk in on his worst fear supposedly coming true was so heartbreaking for him.

anyway! Thank you so much for the review(s)!

Review #21, by Lululuna Memories

7th May 2013:
Haha, so I loved the interactions with George being cheeky, it was too funny. I really enjoy Hannah, she's so down to earth, believable and likeable as a character. Something I really like about your story is how you concentrate on the details of the characters' classes and little things about living at Hogwarts. The Pensieve Charms class was such an incredibly creative idea, and I loved Hannah's memory of Fred and her Sorting. However, I have noticed that the future chapter titles have some darker names, like "Guilt" and "Misery." Hopefully this doesn't mean there will be trouble in paradise between Hannah and Fred?!!! No!! Well, I guess I'll just have to keep reading and find out! :)

Author's Response: I love George. I think he'd be such a great dad. (have I said this once or twice in my responses? I feel like I have :p) I love writing Hannah. She's definitely got her flaws but I think that's what makes her believable. Or I like to hope, at least.

one of the things I set out to do with this was to make a very believable school year. That's one of the things that made the books so loveable was reading about Harry and Ron's misery in classes, and I wanted to hold onto that through here. And thank you! I really enjoyed planning those lessons out.

hee, don't look at the future titles! Live in the bliss in these chapters! (I'm a little too late to save you, I think.)

Thank you!

Review #22, by Lululuna A Weasley Wedding

7th May 2013:
I loved this!!! Fred and Hannah are SO adorable together, and I love how realistic and natural their relationship is. All the sneaking around the parents and constantly being embarrassed is so funny. I love how close Fred and his father are, they seem like a crazy father-son duo, and of course any mention of Oliver Wood's Quidditch-mania is just gold. I'm really glad you picked him as Hannah's dad, and her family makes for a really enjoyable story dynamic. Oh, and I also thought Hannah's first drinking experience was very believable! I like how responsible they are and how the story doesn't glamourize partying, just points it out as a normal, fun part of being a teenager! Lovely writing, really! :) As you can probably tell, I really love this story and have been reading it in my free time all day! It's just awesome! :)

Author's Response: Aw, yay! I had so much fun writing this and Christmas. They sort of write themselves with how well their relationship transitioned from friends to lovers.

I always picture Fred and his dad, not like the twins back in the day, but I really think Fred looks up and respects his dad, and I think George would be such a great father. I read something once how George could never produce a patronus after FredI died, but I just don't believe that he's never had any happy moments with his family that he could use.

off topic, Julie!

Oliver! He's such a riot in the books that I have to imagine he's just the same now that he's a parent.

I really didn't want to glamourize drinking, so I'm just really really happy that you picked up on that :D It doesn't always have to end in tragedy and woe as long as you're safe and know your limits, and I feel like that goes back to George teaching Fred stuff like that.

:D I can't thank you enough for these reviews! I know I'm insanely late in responding to them, but they're sort of bringing me back to a reader's point of view that I had lost over the time, so I really, really do appreciate these!

YAY, they kissed!! I've totally converted, I love Fred and Hannah together. Scorpius and Rose just deserve each other, though I feel that the drama is far from over. This was such a sweet chapter, I loved the prank they played with the love potion too! And a penguin is an awesome Patronus! :)

Author's Response: :D Finally, right!?

Definitely far from over. He's still got a few tricks up his sleeve!

You can't leave those two alone together without something ridiculous like a 'love potion in the punch' happening. If anything, I blame Sophie and Albus :D

Review #24, by Lululuna Confusing Clues

6th May 2013:
Another great chapter! I don't know, Scorpius is turning out to be pretty manipulative. I'm a bit confused about why Hannah likes him so much since he isn't that nice to her, but hopefully he'll either smarten up or she'll see his true colours soon! I do like the whole secret romance thing, though! :) I also suspect they're going to get caught at some point... "I fancy a visit with Moaning Myrtle?" Smooth Hannah, smooth.

I liked the interactions with "Teddy" and the Nogtail- it actually sounded kind of cute in a bloodthirsty magical creature way! Also, the inter-house tournament is a really cool idea to give the story an extra bit of action. I'm excited to find out what the first task is! :)

Author's Response: Hee, thank you! He is. I think he's very used to getting what he wants and he's suffering now that things are starting to become too much for him to manipulate and handle.

haha.. she is not smooth at all :D

Thank you! I'm glad you like the idea of the inter-house tournament. I didn't want to just have a story filled with drama, angst and Quidditch (that sounds like a title to a next gen.. lol) so I made the plans for it and I am glad I did.

Thank you for the review! I love reading your process through the story!

Review #25, by Lululuna Classes

6th May 2013:
I really like this story!! It's funny and very well-written. I especially like the character of Hannah: she's very well-rounded and has a really unique voice which is great. I love the elicit relationship going on between her and Scorpius and am interested to see what happens when they meet up. However, I secretly think she and Fred would make a cute couple. :P

Rose is so annoying, but I feel like since this is only through Hannah's POV that she's probably not so bad. Also, it's refreshing how James is already graduated, since so many next gen stories focus around him! You've also done a good job at characterizing the teachers perfectly! Can't wait to find out what happens! :)

Author's Response: Wow, thank you! I'm very happy to hear that you are enjoying Hannah so far. Hee.. Hannah and Freddie. Well... (no spoilers for those people that peek at reviews :p )

Very much so, exactly as you've said. Rose seems annoying, because it is in Hannah's perspective. I'm actually really glad that you saw that! As herself she's a smart person that likes following the rules, and Hannah has a bit of growing up to do to realize that isn't something to dislike her for.

yay teachers! I always thought Neville would be this awesome, cool, (to everyone but Sophie, of course) teacher that all the kids just loved.

Thank you for the review!
