Hi I just wanted to say that this was extremely good I'm having trouble deciding if I liked the books or this better but I'm at a loss as to why its abandoned I really was hoping to finish it the story moved me I loved this view on harry and ginny\'s relationship it was great to say the least I spent around 36 hours reading this I read it in one reading session and I hoped that you would finish it but thanks for the story I loved it

I've made several attempts to restart this fic in recent years none of which have been successful. I discussed it with a friend only last month but until i get at least a few chapters up and running (if that ever happens) it will remain abandoned.

Its not something I like but i think its best to be honest with everyone.

What a lukewarm beginning. Harry cares, Ginny cares but there is no passion? No Spark? Have they become too comfortable and now Ginny thinks he is looking to move on? A little confusing so far. I look forward to clarification in the future. p

just to let you know that when someone starts reviewing previously published chapters like this I don't tend to respond to the reviews they leave. However, as you've been so complimentary I might make an exception in your case.

'Harry had never thought he would miss the old bugger, but he did. Just one more person who died because of Tom Bloody Riddle' -- I see this was written before Book 6 (though JKR may rehabilitate him in 7 ) .
'"Try and act your age for once and not your shoe size."' -- nice line .
'more intimate than lovers' -- interesting take on Harry's and Ginny's relationship. But how can Ginny make that statement and think that Harry is going to dump her?

Oh I say,

Thank you sir.

12M is a bit of a rollercoaster ride. Its not your average fic - not that I think you'd expect that from me - but its about their emotional development and features a fair bit on angst or is it flangst, I'm never sure. Basically, I'm saying give Ginny time to grow.

You know, I've been wanting to read this story for a long time, and I put it off again and again because I was afraid of its pre-HBP-ness. (Note how the other two stories of yours that I read were post-HBP. Aren't I a coward?)

But although I am a canon-holic, I knew that I'd enjoy this story. And of course I do. There was just one pre-HBP cliché, if you don't mind me calling it that: Ginny shouting at Harry because he was drawing away, then kissing and making up. But what followed is so original that it makes up for that a hundred times. Wonderful writing. I loved the bit about Mr and Mrs Weasley (
Try and act your age for once and not your shoe size. ), and poor Ginny thinking she knew what was going on in Harry's head.

And I'm on to the next chapter...

Well I'm glad you decided to take the plunge. Its a bit of an emotional rollercoaster to say the least, enjoy the ride.

I take it you have left the country or your computer has crashed or your exams were harder than you thought or a dozen other reasons as to why you have deserted your fic. Too many writers don,t think their fics through before they begin them and lose heart part way through . I hope you are not one of them.

I really enjoyed this chapter. Cracked up when I read: 'The-Boy-Who-Kicked-Tom's-', especially. Way funny.

Typical misunderstandings between H and G, I can see. OK, off to read chapter 2!

Great job so far!!!

One minor thing that's kinda bugging me. The story starts out as August 1999, but Harry just celebrated his 18th birthday. Shouldn't he be celebrating his 19th? Maybe I got my timelines mixed up, but I think he was born in 1980.

Well, that's just me being so critical... but keep going! Onto reading chapter 2!

I think you're right  The dates got changed just after the chapter was published and we've obviously missed somehting. Thanks for pointing it out.

Very nice so far.  I especially enjoyed the description of Arthur & Molly.

One minor nit to pick.
"Arthur!" Molly Weasley batted her husband on the arm, "Try and act your age for once and not your shoe size..."
Well, my shoe size in the US is 10.5, and I'm a average sized guy.  But in UK sizes, that would be 44.  So is Arthur really acting like he's in his mid 40's.
But great story.  I can't wait to read more.

 Here in the UK we don't use continental shoe sizes, so Arthur would be wearing a size nine or ten.  I glad you're enjoying the story.

What a promising start to this story.  Look forward to the next chapter.  Harry can be so annoying some times....he thinks too much, and should just go for it!
Monday 24th January 2005 23:27Twelve Months (Author Response)
Thanks for the review. He should go for it should it ? Perhaps he is.

I really liked this! I like the relationship between Harry and Ginny! And I also loved the bit with Mr. and Mrs. Weasley, shows that true loves does last forever.

Can't wait for the next chapter.

I don't know who I want to smack more, Harry for being obtuse or Ginny for panicing.  Bravo!

Great story, the suspense is killing me. I figure he is going to ask her to marry him, but then again he might be breaking up?  

This was well written and very imaginative story, cant wait for the next chapters......

I'm pleased you liked it. That is the question isn't it? Break up or proposal? You'll find out soon.

Very well written.....I'm not big on angst--enough in my own real life, thank you--but I love good fluff.  Here's hoping! :-)
Sunday 23rd January 2005 13:37Twelve Months (Author Response)
Yes there will be angst (sorry),  but  I much prefer fluff. so hang on in there.

Oh, I really like this one so far!

Only, you know, if I were Ginny, I would never let a man get away with not making a commitment for that long. But then, I don't have a Voldemort to fight (besides that, I am not Ginny). But...I guess, if you love someone enough you might be willing to forego the "official" relationship stuff. I dunno, I have mixed feelings about it.

Anyway, but I like the story so far a lot. I'm intrigued. Do continue soon.

I'm glad you liked it. It's my first attempt at a chaptered fic and it's nice to get such a warm welcome.
