|I am not to sure if I liked the use of some of the expletive language. It is not the Harry Potter I know. But it did bring a natural lively feel to a well crafted little gem.|

|This is very nice. I particularly like the ending-|
Ginny laid her head on his heart and simply listened to the sound of it beating for a few moments. “I feel like, seeing you again, knowing that Rookwood’s going to jail… I feel like… everything will be okay.”
As they walked to the entrance of the school, the first snowflakes fell from the grey skies.

|I'm not sure if I buy Harry smoking and swearing. I think he really is a goody two-shoes at heart.|
On the other hand, the pub scene is both believable and entertaining, and you do a great job describing H+G's longing for one another. The action is brief, and very canon, since JKR usually has everyone end up in convenient places. Overall very enjoyable. Thanks!

|This was very well done. A little smuttiness is good! It reminds us all that we are human and the people we write stories to entertain are human too! Thanks for writing. This was one of my favorite short stories after DH. p|

|I generally enjoyed this - thought it had enough action/fluffyness to be really good. I found some style things a bit strange though; Ron and Harry seemed to swear a lot - which I find odd because they almost never swear in the books and this is only a few months later after all - I find it hard to believe they would suddenly have developed a whole new vocabulary. I also found bits of it quite American in tone which I generally don't like in HP fiction simply because they are in England - I think this happened mainly in dialogue where I didn't always get the sense that it was the same Harry and Ron that we know talking. The only other thing I didn't like as much was the smoking - partly because I think there's enough of it in the real world for it to start appearing in the HP world - but mainly because it was just out of character for the wizarding world - I honestly cannot think of anyone who properly smokes in the HP books.|
Having said that, it didn't stop me reading both parts and really liking it. It was a good length with an interesting plot and I hope you don't mind me being honest with my review. I feel a little harsh but I really wanted to review to let you know I'd enjoyed it but couldn't do that without saying there were things I didn't like as much.

|Part 2 (Author Response)|
|No, your review wasn't harsh. To be quite honest, it's one of two reactions I've gotten thus far about this fic. I would like to justify my choices, if that's all right with you. |
Harry & Ron do swear in the books. Quite a lot. JKR just doesn't specify which words they used -- as she was writing for children. I didn't really set out to write a story that was appropriate for everyone, and so I felt I had more freedom to play with the dialogue.
We don't know much about the era immediately following the war, but I chose to make it a little less rosy and a little more harsh than most others. My world is a bit grittier than most, but so is Deathly Hallows.
As for the smoking -- Well. Most can take it or leave it. I will say this. The story is set in the late 1990s in Britain. Statistically, a great portion of that population smoked.
Thank you for your honesty, and I'm glad you read it all the way through. There will be more set in this world -- although probably not with the language that I found necessary with THIS plot, since the next centers around Neville & Hannah.
