I'm so glad Albus wants bedtime stories at the age of ten. By the time my own son was that age, he was putting himself to bed after bidding us good-night and I miss the closeness of tucking him in and reading to him like Harry does in this story. You've captured the impatience of a young boy excellently and I enjoyed the father/son exchanges just as much as I enjoyed the Ford and Greg story. Well done.
That was absolutely adorable, and I loved every minute of it. It was the perfect mixturee of funny and intense, and Albus's reactions and comments were perfect :)
Author's Response: Thanks so much, Maple! I'm glad you enjoyed this, I enjoyed planning it out and had fun writing it. I'm glad you liked Albus, he's a favorite of mine. Thanks for reading this old story, and for the lovely review!! ~Gina :)
that was very cute, clever, and poignant!

LOVED IT! KEEP ON WRITING! YOU HAVE A TALENT!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'm glad you liked this story. I have quite a few more up, several about Albus if you are interested. Thank you for reading this one and leaving such a nice compliment! ~Gina :)
That was really good.
Author's Response: Thank you, I'm glad you liked it! Thank you for reading it and leaving a nice note! ~Gina :)
Interesting stuff- I was a bit confused- it seemed non DH compatible until the boggart, and george all alone . . . we love your Fred.
Author's Response: A belated thank-you for the review! I'm sorry you were confused, I know it jumped back and forth a lot. I think it's all compatible, though. I'm glad you liked Fred! Thanks for reading and reviewing!! ~Gina :)
Ah, what a sweet story! I really enjoyed reading this. It really did have all the good parts of a story, and I could see Fred and George getting up to such antics. The advice was great too. :) Laughter can carry you through anything. . . I know from experience! LOL
I did notice you used Fred and George in one line of the story. . .
The following weekend Fred and George scoured the castle for a boggart.
I think that was an accident, by either you or Harry! LOL.
Thanks for a good laugh and great story! Cyns
Author's Response: Hi Cyns! Thank you so much for reading this story! It's been a while, hasn't it? How's the little one? I'm glad you enjoyed the story. And thanks for pointing out my typo (or Harry's slip, lol) - I'm going to fix that because I didn't want to give it away! ;) Thank you so much for leaving such a great review - hope you are well and still writing yourself. Take care and thanks again! ~Gina :)
Excellent story, it has a bit of everything in it and it's great how you mixed little Albus and Harry's moments with the Terrible Twins' antics. I really enjoyed it!

I love this story! I don't usually read oneshots, but I really liked this one. It was happy and sad all at the same time. Great job!
Author's Response: Thank you so much - I'm so glad you stopped to read this story, and enjoyed it as well! I really appreciate the nice review - thanks again!! ~Gina :)
What a treasure, what a gift to be able to give to others; the ability to create a tale that is funny scary and exciting AND tender and touching. Thank you for sharing that amazing gift. I enjoyed it very much.
Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much - and you are very welcome! I'm so glad you enjoyed this story and found it to be so many things - that is what an author always hopes for! Thank you for taking the time to leave such a wonderful review, I truly appreciate it - it is very encouraging and always makes me smile! ~Gina :)
Wow, great story! It was sweet, funny and sincere. I especially love how you involved Harry and Albus, and how you stuck to JKR's future.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm so glad you enjoyed it, it was fun to write. Thank you for leaving such a nice review, it means a lot to me after being away for so long! ~Gina :)
WOW! This was great! And it was very entertaining, not just for a 10 year old! ;) Little Albus was sweet, a bit like Harry, but I recognised a bit of his grandpa too! And Harry.. I liked this new, not depressed, grown up Harry!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the great review! I'm so glad you liked this story - it's been a while since I've written anything so it is so gratifying to get such a wonderful first review! Thanks again! ~Gina :)
