This'll be my 4th or 5th time reading this. Probably my favorite Harry/gabby fic. Actually it just may be my favorite period. The emotions are human, the interactions are fairly realistic, and there's the betrayal/shove-it-up-their-ass combo that makes me happy inside.

Great story. I've read this several times and it's still awesome.

Hope is a well-written story. The characters, backstory, tensions blend well together, nicely done!

The biggest problem...and its quite a big elephant in the room, is that you made Ron Bilius Weasley a goddamn Gary-Stu in this story. He is essentially the PERFECT friend, the PERFECT husband, basically the PERFECT everything which is incredibly unrealistic. Too perfect!

Canon Ron was a terrible friend, vindictive, jealous and very insecure with very few redeeming qualities. He is what you call a high-maintenence friend and the only reason Harry clung to Ron in the books like a life-line was because Ron was Harry's first and only friend after a decade of loneliness and depressing life of abuse, so its only expected that Harry would be afraid to make new friends at Hogwarts aside from Hermione. If it had been anyone else, they would have cut Ron loose and made new friends who would understand, that for Harry to have fame, wealth and political power, Harry had to loose his family to a mad man. Instead, Ron is constantly jealous of Harry's fame and wealth....epitome of an awful friend who is one-dimensional.

I can understand you wanted to make Ron grow up and be mature in this story but he is just too perfect and has absolutely no flaws whatsoever!

It doesn't help that both JK Rowling and many fanfic writers such as yourselves have fallen into the trap of glossing over the fact that....Hermione would date and marry the very first boy who essentially bullied her when she entered the Magic world! It wasn't Draco it was Ronald Bilius Weasley who first mercessly teased Hermione on "know-it-all bookworm, oh that girl has serious issues" that should have by rights left a lasting impression of: "This boy is definetely not boyfriend material".

Think about it for a moment, a young 11yr young girl hears about a new world of magic where unicorns, dragons and magical people exist which must seem like a fairy tale ...a place to make friends. Bear in mind that Hermione would have been bullied in muggle school for being a know-it-all bookworm before she went to Hogwarts, so its only expected that she hopes to make friends with her own 'kind', with people who can understand her.

First thing upon entering a bigoted Ron with a blackhole of a stomach, atrocious table manners with "the emotional range of a teaspoon" who bullies and teases her. Worse even, he never actually apologized to Hermione at all in the novel after the troll incident. Anouther thing that bothers me is that Ron literally brought Hermione to tears almost on a daily bases every year and I have never seen Ron make her laugh once in the books. rights that should have PERMANTENLY imbued an aversion to all things ginger for Hermione, so for the life of me I don't understand why JK Rowling shipped them together.

But I digress, this story is great except for Ron being nothing like cannon Ron...even if he does grow up and acts more maturely, he should still have some character flaws present that allows readers to connect more with the character.

Just rereading this story for the umpteenth time. I'm actually kindof sad that the epilogue is gone. While it may not have lived up to your own standards, it definitely did to many of your readers - it still engendered an emotional response from me, at any rate.

It is, of course, your perrogative as the author to do whatever you like with your stories, but I remind you that an artist's worst critic is usually themselves. <G>

-Kat Ps. I don't suppose you'd be willing to send me the old epi? ;)

Simply stunning, one of the best stories I've read, fic or ff, amatuer or pro.

You had me laughing, frustrated and choked up. You used excellent puns and obscure references, yet had a clear and solid plot. Your characters had depth and developed naturally. I'm hooked on your writing and am quite happy to see you've finished several other works, I can't wait!

Blessings, Majerus

awesome first chapter really got me into it! Excited to see how Harry handles his injury, does he feel contempt with his temporary job? or does he try to heal it with some kind of spell so as to get back to what he loves doing? can't wait to see what you did with this story!

Bloody amazing story!

So, just testing the rules on this site for repeat reviews on the same chapter. Also, I'd just like to say that this is probably the best Harry/Gabby story I'm ever read, it was fantastic, I forgot to give it the kudos it deserved in the other review. Also, I got through the story without reviewing it every chapter, I was that absorbed in the story, I didn't really notice switching chapters.

I loved this story, and I love the pairing of Harry and Gabriel. I mean, Harry doesn't have any more connections with Ginny than he does with Gabby(Sister of best friend vs Sister of friend(who happens to married to brother of best friend) and has a crush before he saved her life and the crush is based on his fame vs has a crush based on him saving her life and being himself). Anyways, I have many more reasons than that, and it's also fun to read stories about them, because while she is always depicted as somewhere around ethereally beautiful, her personality is very different from one story to the next, due to her being only a small supporting character(albeit one who has a basis for a strong connection with Harry that authors can play up). Anyones, those are some of the reasons it's my favorite pairing, and why I infinitely prefer it over Harry and Ginny(I have many more reasons for this and why it is my favorite pairing above anything else). Also, most stories end up with Harry embracing his power and/or fame and riches, and living a long and fulfilled life with a beautiful wife. So yeah, the ending is always better than what most Harry and Ginny stories end with, which from what I've seen is usually Harry just being a pretty good minister and having some kids who go to Hogwarts, which isn't very deep and puts Harry into the position of doing what he hates(from what I've seen, he hates being in politics a lot and is more content to just endorse people or spend his money for the betterment of everyone, from the background, all legally(had to add that because while Dumbledore seemed to be trying to better everyone, he did so illegally and ruined Harry's life, along with a lot of other people's dreams of doing anything related to potions or being an auror when they grew up, and Harry is definitely not like Dumbledore). Jeez, I keep telling myself to stop ranting and get on with the review of this story, and then launch into another one, sorry about that. Anyways, I love how you made Gabby in this story, making it(the bond) an enslavement that she found her way around and maintained control of her free will, along with having her be the perfect match for Harry because she worked hard to make herself so. I mean, instead of where Harry and Fleur/Gabriel have a bond and their personalities are immediately changed(I know you said that was what would have happened in this to most Veela). I was really not expecting the thing at the end with the Death Eaters, as I'd been used to most of the story, which was happy and upbeat(not overwhelmingly so), as your usually are(that's a good thing for me), and I had to reread it to make sure I was seeing it correctly. I like OP Harry, as long as he doesn't abuse his power or turn weird and dark(or like the fanfics that say he's turned grey, while he's gutting people with magical flying knives and saying it's all about the intent. -_-). I also like stories that focus on Harry's Quidditch, and the fact that in the books he's described as any amazing seeker, a natural on the broom, and the best in centuries, when he's just barely beating out his competitors, who aren't that great, to the snitch. And then he doesn't pursue the obvious career that he has the skill for, when he loves to play Quidditch(in canon I mean). Anyways, I liked the overall plot, the characters, Malfoy dying, and it was a fun and interesting read. Great work, sorry for the rambling in the review, and keep it up. I can't wait to read all of your current stories and some future ones of yours.

Ok, compliments of my dirty mind(with a start like that you can guess what I mean by this), when I saw "and he can’t even do the one thing he loves anymore," uh, yeah, you can guess what I thought. Also, this is probably the wrong story to be asking this on, but I'm lazy, and I've reviewed every chapter in HEA already(I don't know if this site has rules, one review per chapter, and I'm too lazy to check that too :P), so will you ever post Castles in the Sky? I saw something from like 8 years ago on your stories page that said you had 15 pages done, so where is it now? I really would like to read it.

Happy 10 year anniversary to one of my favorite stories. Thank you Jeconais for giving me a source of happiness that's never failed to put a smile on my face when things around me are going pear-shaped.

Excellent story, thank you for writing.

Just finish this after another read-through. Still excellent. But what is this 'Object Lessons Trilogy' you speak of?! :-S :-S

Hope is quite simply, a masterpiece. This is an OUTSTANDING piece of writing.

HWLLHP posted a comment on Saturday 7th February 2015 8:24am

I recently reread this -- enjoyed it as always.

But I still think, as I always have, that there's a good argument Ron and Hermione should make in their own defense: Their "manipulation" didn't take options away from Harry, it gave him an option that he otherwise would not have had: to fall in love with Gabrielle without the pressure of knowing that saying no would mean abandoning her to insanity. It was always in the plan that if he had not fallen for her, he would have been given the information in time to act on it if he'd wanted. And he could've been told about the Bond after falling for her if he had.

Always a good read. I really like your writing.

Thank you for the stories!

This is one of my favorite stories that I have read. Is there anywhere that the epilogue is posted? It is what helped to make it one of the best in my opinion.

Oh. My. F-ing. God!! That. was. FANTASTIQUE! And no, I won't apologise for the broken French!! :-P
