This is perhaps the very best Harry and Gabi story in all fanficdom. I have read this at least 20 times and it never gets old.

I enjoy this story everytime I re-read it, but....I wish you had left the Epilogue in. I liked it, too. Oh, well.

Thanks for sharing your version of Harry Potter with us - I appreciate it!

I may have said this before, as I have read the story numerous times, but this is an absolutely wonderful story. It leaves me with a lovely, slightly fluffy, glow. This particular time I was humming You Are My Destiny throughout this last chapter. There are many stories which claim to be about people destined to be together, about soul-bonds of different sorts, and about great and overwhelming love. Mostly, they don't come anywhere near the feelings this story conveys.

I am aware you, Jeconais, aren't quite happy with how this turned out, wanting it to be more of a fairytale. I believe you are selling yourself short. Actual fairytales are a little boring from an adult point af view: black-and-white characters with little personality, the plot generally clear from the beginning. In my oppinion you managed to include the best elements of fairytales in this story. It has amazing magic. While the main characters are quite clerly and invariably good/bad, they can't be called shallow by any means. You can tell right from wrong in this story. And it is better than traditional fairytales in some aspects. While keeping the solutions within sight, it is not too straight forward. It is missing the most obvious teachings or messages, unless you count 'never loose hope' as one.

I am not saying Happily Ever After is not a good story -- it is! It has a different feel of fairytale to it. I, personaly, just happen to enjoy Hope more. HEA is maybe a little bit too light in spirit for me, moody curmudgeon that I am.

Anyway, even if you arent quite happy with this story, I certainly am!

Thank you.

I wanted you to know someone is publishing this story on ffnet here:

I have complained, but perhaps you could rally the troops and get others to do the same?

i typically hate post Hogwarts, extreme Dumbledore bashing, and always found GD/HP just weird. You not only made it tolerable, but damn well done. Great story.

I just have to say that I enjoyed reading that story IMMENSELY and thank you kindly for writing and sharing it with us. Now I have to see what other amazing things you have written.

Thanks!!!

This was a wonderful story - I loved the progression of the characters' development, the even attention to the various threads, and the way the writing showed instead of told.

Thanks for posting a great read!

Epic story excellently written, I have read it about 4 times now, it is a simply brilliant piece of fanfiction

Well, you truly are an excellent writer. Thanks for another wonderfully satisfying story.

AragornII posted a comment on Wednesday 2nd January 2013 5:11am

Wow...the final scenes, starting at the nightclub, are pretty sensational.

Also really appreciate how grounded and real this has been. Can't when authors start off with solid premises and then go all stupid and have the characters being asses; appreciating both the perceived need for a bit of deceit and the honesty that immediately arose when needed.

Thanks

Excellent! Both Fun and Exciting. Without Hope, most people would just give up, and be resigned to whatever fate awaits them. That "meddling old fool" strikes again, if Gabby hadn't had her "deja vu" moment, he would have gotten away with it, and all because he wanted to control Harry, never mind the consequences, and all for the "Greater Good". Sadly some of what he has done could be attributed to the dementia, and the rest of it lays in Snapes greasy hands. This also gives us a little more insight of Albus' actions, you've got to concider that his dementia started kicking in officially around Harry's First Year at Hogwarts, which makes you wonder when it really started, as it starts very gradualy and it can be several years before any noticable symptoms occur. Poor Harry. Thank You. TTFN

i honestly think this is the first story that would be as good with lemons as without.

Hello,

I've read this years ago (about 8 if I remember correctly) and I remember that I loved it, as I loved every single story that you wrote. It's somehow entrancing that, especially Hope, doesn't even have a major villain, but still manages to catch me so throughly that, instead of writing my thesis as I am supposed to do, I spent the last two days reading this. Your stories were amongst my first favourites in HP fanfiction and are the only ones that have remained favourites even now. I love the way you write and your characters. Yes, it does come close to being a fairytale, but maybe this wonderful light feeling is exactly what makes me feel good after I read one of your stories. I certainly don't dislike the fairytale qualities.

I have to admit that I'm quite happy that you decided to remove the epilogue. As much as I like the light nd romantic feeling your stories have, I remember that I found the epilogue to be a bit too much so. This seems a perfect ending without overdoing it. (Although I'm pretty sure that I do have the original version somewhere on my computer and will read it through just to figure out if I didn't prefer the epilogue after all...)

This story somehow makes me want to read more Harry/Veela stories, be it Fleur or Gabrielle. Sadly, most creature fics apart from this one use the creatures' abilites as shortcuts to get two characters together or whatever else and I just don't like that. I adore the way you used the Veela bond as an inital hindrance for their relationship, at least from Harry's point of view since he was trying to figure out which parts of his feelings were his and which were induced by the bond. By the way, a huge compliment on the idea to let them see each other without the bond's interference and its execution.

Since I enjoyed this so much, I'll probably have to reread This means war, too... We'll see if I need more distractions from writing my thesis...

Thank you so much for writing.

There is one major problem with this story - well, the ending.

You tell us that there was an epilogue - and then erased it! That's just far beyond cruel. A story this good, with that many little stories that could be discussed in the epilogue... and you tease?

Cruel, cruel, cruel.

Other than that, a wonderful story. It's the second time I've read it.

The calendar tells me it's summer, but the weather is not cooperating. What better way to lift my spirits than rereading one of my favourite AU adult Harry fics? I know I've said it before, but I do love your stories. And I hope we'll get to read more after you've settled in Scotland. May it be a smooth move!

Excellent story. As time goes on I find myself more and more liking Gabrielle. Thank you.

I just finished reading this for the 5th (or is it 6th?) time. I thought you'd appreciate knowing that.

However, I'm a little disapointed to see the epilogue is gone. I saw your a/n, and while I obviously don't know what your goals or thoughts were for that ending, I thought it was a neat way to close the story while retaining the same emotional content(?) that preceeded it. Oh well.

It's funny you know. I've been reading fan fiction since I was 13 or 14. I'm 24 now. My tastes have matured signifcantly and the stories I've loved have changed just as dramatically. Quite a few of the stories I once thought were better than canon have since dimmed significantly in my changing view points.

I wish I could remember the first time that I read Hope, but I can't say that I do. I do remember that I liked it a great deal, just as I've liked this site a great deal over the years.

Since the first time I finished your story, I've graduated from college with a degree in creative writing. This helped me notice the many flaws present in a number of the stories I once thought were impressive. This includes Hope of course (as everyone knows Jeconais does DO realistic, threatening villains).

But over the years, I've found myself returning here time and time again. I've read hope beginning to end more than any real book or any other piece of fan fiction ever. Regardless of its flaws, Hope might be my personal favorite piece of literature.

I even have a rant on it in my fanfiction dot net profile. I simply can't understand how a story with so little real conflict or tension can be so enjoyable to read. Every time I come back here I fall in love with Gabrielle all over again and feel Harry's disconnect with the rest of the world. Even though I know how it ends, I'm entranced as Gabrielle drags Harry back from the brink and makes him a happier, more complete person.

I've reviewed this story several times I'm sure, but I just felt like something else needed to be said. Thank you for writing this story. I've drawn more enjoyment from this story over the years than from anything else I've ever read.

Thanks,

Rex

(P.S. I'm glad you scrapped the epilogue. I remember reading it one of the times I read the story, but I deliberately skipped it every other time. I've always prefered ...and they lived happily ever after... to ...and the died after a long happy life. Shakespeare had it right. End it with a wedding if it's happy and a funeral if it's sad.)
