Well that's got to be the most interesting journey in a forest eh?
Lmao LOVED the bed scene! The Arm Menace! And then there's the Hair Mask! Be afraid, be very afraid *bursts out into giggles*

Sharing a bed *sounds* so romantic - but reality is not always the case.

wow... im guessing that that jarvey knows something and that cat from the last chapter is an angimus? sorta like wormtail i guess...
that well sounds interesting... i bet that there is more to it and will become important later on in the story.
aunt martha told them to stay in the woods too...

So I've read this story several times and I have 'sympathy' for poor Harry with his nightmares while Ginny sleeps on top of him.... *sigh* stupid boy!

I was a cruel author, wasn't I? LOL Ah, well, it worked out in the end. I'm glad you liked this story well enough to read it more than once. That makes my day. Thanks.

Hey, I love how this is going so far. I'm very curious about that feather--and this aunt of Ginny's; I do assume she's involved with everything? I know this story's finished, so I might drop in a few times to comment before I get to the end.

Oh, yes - do let me know what strikes you as you read. It's an old story of mine, so it's fun to re-live it with a new reader. And yes, Aunt Martha is very important in this story.

'Ten minutes later, the arm thumped her in the ear.' -- -- Harry the bed hog; poor Ginny . 'she never dreamed the worst horror would be the Arm That Wouldn't Sleep' -- .
So Ginny is something special ... opens the fountain (which Harry couldn't see) and is recognized by the old cow ( ). But I think your last chapter title is a bit off (unless Aunt Martha isn't a Weasley but only married a Weasley?)

That was very odd. But was very good. Harry's core is a feather, and snidgets are cool. I would be proud, but I see why Ginny is not. I like it, hopefully it keeps being like this.

Aw, poor Ginny - Harry was a bit mean at the beginning! :-( I like your idea of Ginny's wand coming from the Golden Snidget - that's quite an original idea. Your writing is still brilliant and I'm intrigued!

Well, I would say that Harry is a bit frustrated at this point - waking up with a beautiful girl drapped all over you would have to be difficult for a 16 year old boy.  That's why he was being so off-putting to Ginny - but he manages to put up with her bad mood later, so I'd say they were even.

Ah, the Arm With a Mind of its Own... yup-that sounds about right! And I think you gauged Ginny's reaction very realistically. I enjoyed the spat when Harry came back into the room and their exchange about Snape.

I do like Aunt Martha. She reminds me of someone I knew as a child, especially with all the ornaments! having them discuss Harry and Ginny as though they couldn't hear them was just brilliant.

"Try to enjoy yourselves today," Aunt Martha said with a gleam in her eye. "Although it's not a good sign if you can't get along in bed." You'd think I'd have learned not to eat/drink whilst at the computer by now, wouldn't you? That was so funny and unexpected that I burst out laughing!

Interested and curious about Ginny's dowsing abilities, as well as her wand. Harry does have this knack for opening his mouth and saying the first thing that comes into his head, doesn't he. *sigh* he's young, he'll learn.

I think Aunt Martha is a composite of all the old ladies from my youth as well.  I would have loved talking mugs and figurines when I was kid!

I really try not to force the humor.  It's a fine line sometimes.  Still, JKR made OotP bearable for Harry and for the readers with humor - so I try to keep that in mind. 

And there's nothing wrong with mirth, in any story, no matter how dark. After all, if you can't laugh, in the midst of sorrow, the only thing left is tears, right?

That was wonderful. It kept me grinning the entire time. I enjoyed how you are developing Ginny's character and how Harry reacts to her remarks. Also, I liked your technique in the first chapter where you just jumped straight to the action and didn't dally with what everyone did/is doing in the summer. It made it much more captivating and I can't wait to read more! Write more, please.

I started this story so many different ways - and then I realized that I only cared about what was happening to H/G at that moment.  Once I let myself write about what interested me - it became so much easier.

I loved the bed scene. Are you sure you didn't model it after my husband's sleeping patterns? I certainly can sympathize with Ginny and her problems slepping with him. It was hilarious. I believe there's more behind Ginny's wand than what we know. I can't wait to find out.

I noticed Harry is quite protective of Ginny and determined to find out more about the situation. He really doesn't want the Malfoy's to get their hands on her. That's a sign. I hope Ginny notices.

As the world's lightest sleeper - I write from experience! 

Ginny notices a lot but is not letting herself think about anything - because she has given up on him - for now.

St. Margaret, in every one of your stories, in every chapter, you make me laugh. Sometimes even in the most heartbreaking scenes, there's something funny that's said, or someone makes light of their tears, and I just have to smile.

This line just jumped out at me.

She was never going to sleep as long as this bed hog only gave her six inches of mattress

So familiar. I just had to laugh. I was all set for some real fluff (and perhaps a trip to the broom closet  ), and instead it was a summer-camp moment.

Just a little something extra I look forward to, above and beyond your wonderful stories that just draw me in, your excellent dialogue, and the 'realness' of your characterization of Harry and Ginny.

Well, this is coming along splendidly.  Captivating, attention getting, and just enough fluff to satisfy my sweet tooth.  Please, please continue.

Oh, I'm having a hard time restraining myself with the fluff.  Still, to be realistic, it's going to take them a while to satisfy my sweet tooth!
