I like Harry's thoughts about other women and Ginny -- I think that is exactly what he would want, no pretense
'and I just don't like to use magic with them, because they belonged to your grandmother' -- interesting perspective; wouldn't a pureblood trust magic more?
So you've come back to Harry's role -- a new prophecy since you didn't have him as the one to kill Voldemort .
'it said neither can live while the other survives. It did not say that I was the one who would actually kill him' -- nice save
But Harry and Quidditch? as a cover perhaps. But with how well he did with the DA, I've always seen him as a teacher.
"Heal the pain" was actually the first fan fiction I read.
And although I read so many good ones after it, I have to say that this story is always on my mind. It touched me so much!!!
I absolutely looove it!!! Pleeease please continue with the sequel!
The story is so amazing....
I'm so glad you're writing this sequel! I hope it won't always be five months between chapters - but I'll wait.
LMAO! I love this new Quidditch Harry! He's awesome! Just like yours was the first in which I read about Harry as an Unspeakable, I think this is the first in which I've read Harry actually playing Quidditch. (Usually it's mentioned, but then something Evil comes up and he doesn't do it.) I like the persona Harry has created for the media. I was laughing out loud when Harry was waving to the fans and putting his dragonhide vest back on afterwards. But even more than that, I liked that Harry doesn't like the act he's forced to put on for everyone. I love that he's the Liason now between the Corp and the Order, but I know it's also been eating Harry alive that he's no longer directly involved in what's going on in the fight.
My heart jumped when Harry's nephew came running towards him. I can't imagine how painful it is for him and Ginny to see Ron and Hermione's child and know they should have a three year old of their own by now. I felt even worse that they've been trying and can't conceive. How unfair that they had a baby and lost it when they weren't even ready and now they are they can't get pregnant! Life is still so unfair for Harry!
I'm really disappointed that it seems most of the Weasleys are no longer working together in the Corp. Granted, it's still very early in the fic, but I'm under the impression that Bill at least as left the Corps which makes me think that Charlie has as well. But did everyone except the Trio had their other jobs in Heal the Pain ? In any case, I hope to see Blaze, Seth, Pollock, Castor, (were those their names? I can only really remember Loki?), Red Knight, Zypher... and of course Onyx in some way... back in action together. After all, who else but the newly extended-Weasleys can take down Blade and Cipher along with Wormtail and those other Evildoers?
Ooh, yay, great chapter! So long since you've updated though! Come on, you've received 23 (well, 24 if you count this one) reviews, surely that's adequate "inspiration"? Hmm, interesting that Wormtail's kept things quiet, just recruiting. Why hasn't anyone been actively looking for him, though? You'd think a guy with a silver hand or a rat with a silver paw, as the case may be, would be pretty darn noticable! I don't particularly care for the new prophecy, but I just don't like prophecies in general. And why can't they have a baby? Interesting twist. Also, you never did answer the question of Ginny's age. Was it just an "oops," or do you have plans for it yet? Cheers, and update soon!
OMG! I'm soooo glad you're back with a sequal. I just finished reading heal the pain, and I absolutely loved it. This story looks really action packed with that new prophesy. Can't wait to SEE where you take this. (pun intended I couldn't help myself)
I am so happy that you continued! I have loved Heal the Pein and that FF started already fantastic. Poor Harry and Ginny....no baby...but I love Sam ...he is sweet. And I am very curious about the prophecy. Update soon...PLEASE!!
I actually read this one before reading Heal the Pain. HtP was very good, and this next installment is shaping up to be just as good. I do hope you will keep up with this even though HBP came out. One question: did you write a story detailing the second war? A story that took place before HtP? Because you throw back quite a lot to things that happened before HtP begins, and I was wondering if you ever wrote a story detailing what happened.
I like "Heal the Pain" so much! I'm looking forward to read this story!! HtP was totally sweet and charming!! keep the style!!! I like the idea of Harry and Ginny together...and they belong to each other!!!!!!
