22 Thirty Days - November Rains

I have been away for a few weeks. I have a new computer now and need to test drive it for awhile. I also needed a break from this story, because I needed to rethink this next segment. I was going to write a single chapter, but decided instead to write four (maybe five) subchapters under the title Thirty Days.

Harry meets Ginny on November the first for some quiet time, but the Headmistress wants a little chat. Dum dum dum

25 Love: Passionate and Tender

If you read the title you probably have a good idea what this might be about. I found this chapter difficult to write and get a good balance and flow to it. I hope it doesn't come out like a cheap romance novel. (even though I would classify this story as a romance.)

I will also inform all my readers that I may not be posting another chapter for a month. I want to write the next four chapters before posting the first one,because of possible cross referencing. So I ask for your patience. Thank you to all who have reviewed.

26 Numb!

WARNING: sensitive subject in this chapter. I have tried to write this chapter so that it does not offend or glorify the subject, but it still has an emotional impact. I am sorry if reading this chapter offends anyone. However, the event is vital to the plot.

So after a month of deliberation and rewriting, I present to you the next chapter.

8,254 16
27 a.k.a. Carmen Del La Rosa

When I first roughed out the draft on this story, I had this chapter before the last one, Numb. I switched them for dramatic effect. This chapter covers the same time frame and events of the previous chapter, but it is from Harry's point of view. 

A final note: I know I disturbed many of my readers with the last chapter, but I would appreciate if you gave this story three more chapters to see how things unfold.

This chapter was more difficult to write than I thought it would be. Hopefully it will be an enjoyable read. I am sorry for being a day late. I had originally thought this chappie would only be about four thousand words. How wrong I was!

7,027 25
34 Unplanned

Harry is free to see Ginny again. Nothing goes as planned by either one, but they survive reguardless.

I apologize for taking so ling with this chapter. I have been thinking about this chapter for so long that I had so many ideas that i couldn't put them all in. I also did the unthinkable; I took time out to read a book that wasn't Harry Potter.

35 Reconnecting

Harry starts rebuilding his relationship with Ginny, Hermione, and Ron. Most of this chapter are things I had originally planned to put into the last chapter, but it just didn't work out.

I had already submitted this chapter earlier this week, but when the site went 'underconstruction' the chapter disappeared. At first, I was in a panic, because I was afraid the entire story was gone. Whew!

36 Two weeks until Easter

A little transition chapter before our favourite couple spends Easter holiday together. 

I want to send a huge apology to all my loyal readers. When I went to write this chapter, I experienced something I never dealt with before; writers block, the chapter didn't unfold to me. Hopefully this will satisfy until the next chapter is posted.

37 Easter Traditions

Traditions are really nothing more than a standardized action to a reoccurring event or condition. (i.e. Every Christmas we decorate a tree, when Ron andHermione disagree they teraditionslly get into a fight.) 

Some times Traditions change, and some of those times, it is for the best, particularly when it comes to our personal relationships. If we don't change then we don't grow and mature.( We will traditionally act like a fifteen year old all our life.)

46 The Wedding - Plans and friends

Harry and Ginny are getting ready to get married in this chapter, as always strange this happen.

I had a difficult time trying to put all the pieces into this chapter that I wanted. Hopefully it won't be too confusing.

11,872 24
47 The Wedding -for everyone else

The second half of Harry and Ginny's wedding, and a small epilogue.

This is the final chapter. It is hard to believe that this story was so well recieved, in spite of my grammatical deficencies. I have always thought literature was like music. Some people enjoy the precision of well ordered words, much like classical music. I have always been a rock n roll and blues lover.

A special thanks to everyone who reviewed. Thank you for the encouragment.
