Chapter: Hands To Build A House

I thought it was a very creative and unique take on the H/G relationship post-Hogwarts. I did wish though for a little more mention of how Harry's relationship to Ron and Hermione had changed (or stayed the same, if that were the case) since the Halloween dinner.

Author's Response: Thanks very much. =) And yes . . . looking back, we probably should have included a bit more on the Ron & Hermione friendships. They are both very important to Harry, and certainly aren't gone forever from his life. We were more concerned about portraying the Harry/Ginny relationship in this fic though.

Chapter: Hands To Build A House

wow, i must admitt that was a great read, you honeslty have talent, more so than most of the other's i've read here. so let me get this straight, in your mind Harry's fanatsy will at some point become a reality right? the house came out like the one in his day dream i'm sure. the only thing i didn't like was that the friendships seemed to die, especially between Ron and Hermione with Harry. i understand why you did it and see the need for it, but it did make me sad. anyway great job, i will deffinetly keep reading from you in the future.

Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much! And yes, my co-author and I hope that eventually Harry's fantasy house will turn into his real life. =) And yes, it is sad to see what Harry's friendships with Ron and Hermione have been reduced to . . . but they have time to resolve things. As seen in the epilogue, they're all on very good terms. But since this fic was about Harry/Ginny, we didn't want to focus on the Harry-Ron-Hermione resolution. Thanks for the sweet review! =D

Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the fic! But I think it's going to remain a one-shot. You can leave the happily-ever-after up to your imagination. =)

Wow I really like this story. I-m not a huge fan of how out of touch Ron Hermione and Harry have fallen. But i understand why it had to be this way. Cool house

Author's Response: Glad you enjoyed the fic! =] And yes, the tension between Harry and his friends is sad, but had to be done. I imagine they're going to work at being better friends by the end of this fic, though. ;) Thanks for the review!

This is so sweet. But it was sad for Harry not too get in much touch with his best friends... I like the house idea though; I'll be an architect in five years.:P Wish I could help Harry. I can be an Archiwitch!:D

Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the fic! Thanks so much for the review, and best of luck with becoming an Archiwitch. =D

Chapter: Hands To Build A House

a good story. i liked how the house symbolyzes harry's life, not complete without Ginny. (atleast i think that's what you were going for). if not it was a good story none the less. i was a little confused at the end and i think a sequel would be awesome!

Author's Response: Yes, that is precisely what my co-author and I were going for. =D As for a sequel . . . I doubt it will happen, but I never like to say never when it comes to fan-fiction. ;) Anyway, thank you for the review!

Chapter: Hands To Build A House

I liked the symbolism of them building the house together. The cold casual nature of all the characters seemed to be a bit off to me. It left me feeling unsatisfied at the end. I realize that not all romance fics must gush love and romance, but the ending felt like an ending where two people were trying to recover from a divorce. Maybe I am projecting to much of my own personal opinion and feelings in here. The rebuilding that they seemed to needed to do felt like a couple who had inflicted a great deal more damage to each other than simply breaking up. It felt like the hard cold feelings that come with the after effects of adultery cheating, or physical abuse. I had the feeling that Ginny didn't trust him with her safety.
Some of the writing seemed to be awkward. I do believe that you had used multiple tenses(particularly present and past) . The main thing I noticed was your years were wrong. Voldemort was defeated on May 2, 1998. The story should have taken place from 1999 to 2000.

Author's Response: Thanks so much for your honest feedback. I can definitely see what you're saying, about Harry and Ginny acting as though they were recovering from more than a break up. The way my co-author and I saw it, they would have a lot to work through before they could reconcile, so we tried to project that into the story in a realistic way. But perhaps we overshot it. I do believe that Ginny would have been a bit guarded around Harry until she learned to trust him again though.

You are, however, absolutely right about the years on the fic! I'll have to fix those.

Thank you so much for the review. =]
