I'm glad we got to see a glimps of Weasley-life passed. Comforting to know that Fred and George were trouble makers from the get-go.
The encounter with Malfoy was both amusing and chilling. A nice touch.
After thinking to myself that the way Harry and Ginny's relationship was progressing was so nice, it was a bit of a shock to have Harry suddenly realise that he's in love with her. They've shared some very affectionate, yet friendly, moments, so I thought we were going to see Harry as he gradually got to know Ginny better and developed a closer friendship with her before he really came to appreciate how deep his feelings for her run... Oh well, theres still some very interesting potential in his recent discovering which should make their next week most entertaining...
Brit Pick time.... the drive from Exeter to London is very long if you
take liberties with the speed limit , but in cab it would take
forever. *grin* A cab suggests a Black Cab which wouldn't do this run.
It is also the case , probably *grin*, that the notes he has from the
90's are not legal tender in the 80's.
But hey this is fluff and why am I getting so worked up *laughs*... onto the next chapter...
Oh-how do you possibly write so many stories-all at once-and so well. This one is tops, I am only a bit shocked over the use of such a valuable object- if Merlin used it to defeat dark wizards- ought not have Harry tried to use it for the same reasons- still if he ends up with Ginny it would be worth that and more

This story was actually written over a year ago. I'm only just now getting around to posting it here. :o
Merlin used a different wishing stone than what Harry and Ginny are
using, so that would explain why no one knew about it until now.

I like this little bit of fluff. It's a good start and I can't wait to see how it turns out when Harry finally gets to meet and talk with his parents. Very well done with this story line and I look forward to seeing more of it.
I have also been reading your other stories and they are also just as good. Have you ever thought about writing about something else? You really are talented and I'm sure you're books would sell.
Drat... why can't three chapters last a little longer? Needless to say, I like this story. And what a wonderful use for the wishing stone! I think I would have used it to gain knowledge, but this is very sweet. 23 galleons for a room fifteen years ago sounds awfully expensive, but that might be because the demand for wizard accomodations in London is so big?
I really look forward to see what happens next - it's a good thing the next chapter is in beta. Keep going!

Just catching up on some reviews.
Unlike the Muggle world, Wizarding currency has little inflation - it's
why there's a large discrepancy between the Pound and the
Galleon. Also, there is only one or two Wizarding hotels in
London - IMO.
I've actually finished this story (it's my first) so hopefully, you'll
end up liking the rest of it as much as this first bit. It's far
too fluffy for my writing style now, but we all have to start
