So, this is kinda wierd for me. I know I found TMW on fanfiction.net YEARS (like 3) ago, but for whatever reasons, I only made it through the first few chapters before stopping.

Then I followed JBern to FanficAuthors, re-discovered you, and ended up reading this LAST of all your stories. Even the Perfect Slytherins I read before finally settling down on Sunday and starting on TMW.

I very much enjoyed it--so much, in fact, that you're my excuse for doing a sub-par job on my Journalism 201 paper that I had to turn in today.

And just so that you're aware, I don't regret the poor grade. this fic was worth it.

Amazing, the level of detail in your stories is great. It's been a long time since I've read a piece of fanfiction of this quality. Thank you for the time you put into this story. I know from personal experience how much time and effort can go into this and how difficult it is to maintain motivation. So thanx for sticking with it.

Just wanted to say WOW your story is amazing beyond doubt will say that this is one of the best of Fan fics I have seen. Your writing style is something that I have only seen once and makes me wonder if that was one of your storys or a rip off of your style... What I look for in a story is something orignal and something that keeps you stuck in your world and you execelled at all of that. I have never read something this good and really is going to make it hard for me to go back to siye and read since there is nothing that can be held up to your story you did a wonderful job and felt that I should let you know that and that I wish you would of done a squel or andother H/G story but alas doesn't ook that will happen which is to bad but will forgive you since this was so good.

A little bit of Harry and Ginny...

The library was full of red hair and the occasional super-nerd looking through large tomes Hogwarts was infamous for. Hermione herself was standing as a large book opened only a few pages towered over a nearby house elf wrestling with a smaller tome.

Harry, hair in a messy array that was natural for the flyer had a faraway look in his eyes, the high from his earlier fight with Gwyneth sharp in his mind.

Seeing him, Ginny put her hand through his hair and he pulled her close.

"Ginny," he started dreamily, his voice falling off as he scented her.

"Yes Harry?" Ginny asked with a smile as his own musk hit her nostrils.

"In a hundred years," he started, as if he could actually see that far, "when NASA or some other muggles decide to land on the moon," at this, many around them looked sceptical (despite the pureblood pledges far from their minds) at the thoughts of a human on the moon; but Hermione was only clueless to why he was mentioning it. "In a hundred years, can we buy a house on the moon too."

She giggled, and told herself to look up all of the facts on outer space where muggles had been. "Then how would we get back to Hogwarts?" she asked, not really believing it was a problem.

"We can commute." He said simply, his eyes going round and he practically begged her. SOme around him giggled about it but the feel of the cool area with little atmosphere and the freedom in seeing the world so beautiful was fresh on his mind and kissed his skin in memory as he held his beautiful lady with red hair to match the perfect rose.

I have just had more fun reading fanfic than I can remember having in a very long time. This story is a little bit of everything, and it was a blast to read. Thank you for all your hard work. This was some of the freshest, most original writing I've read in fanfic and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Cheers!

That was a brilliant story. Thank you so much! I avoided this story for a long time as the summary really didn't appel to me much, but I found as a read it that the summary really has only a little bit to do with it.

Maybe you could think about fixing that?

Anyway...great stuff!

Lets make it just as easy as it is: My absolute Favorite Story. The God of Harry/Ginny Fanfics. The perfect Mix. I could write some more Compliments, but there is no Point. I think I've made myself clear xD

Wow, three days of reading. I originally started on this story while it was attached to fan fiction.net. I stepped away after reading up to the last chapter for a day then was curious to see why there was no further updating on ff.net. My first recommendation to you is to step over to ff, edit your story to note that you have left the ff realm and point them here within the body of text that is your story. Not everyone is wise enough to actually clink the author name then read the reasoning behind the departure and realize their story awaits them on another perch.

I cannot commend you enough as a writer for the effort you have put into this story. While I am finicky with the ships I read, this is by far the most uplifting story I have read, regardless for how the real books ended, I will prefer your story over Rowling because I am not a fan over needless character deaths, which were unfortunately too prevalent in her books. It was nice to have the tears at the end of the story be happy tears of laughter, not loss over the reasonless bloodshed.I get Rowling's need to remind people that this is war... but us poor blokes on the other side of the pond deal with the loss and pain of hurts more than the rest of the world and don't need a careless Brit doing it again in a darn young adults book.

My only request is that you open up the opportunity for people to write the side stories and other stories you have availed to us from the creation, the other details and ships that you hint at but never go into.

Congratulations on a masterpiece and may a muse never leave you.

It was all funny, and it was all brilliant.

Finally, after reading your stories for over two years, I am getting around to reviewing them. Be warned, they will be LOOOONG reviews, but I know of no author who wishes his/her reviews were shorter.

"This Means War"... I have decided to bestow upon it the dubious honorific of the Most Flawed Masterpiece in fanfiction. Simply put, "This Means War" is brilliant... and it is a mess.

Now let's not be simple. The story starts out as a romantic comedy with fluff that is so fluffy and sweet you might as well be spinning cotton candy with your words. As your story progresses, and as your writing style changes and matures, the story takes on many different tones. Once Harry and Ginny's romance is established, it is never again questioned, so the normal ploys that a romantic comedy devises (one of which you successfully punctured when Ginny punches Cho) can no longer be used. So the comedy comes to the forefront as Harry battles the Weasley brothers in a prank war that is not quite a full-scale war, because at the same time Super!Harry begins to develop with a determined vigor, limiting the pranks to one large prank from each side. After this prank, though the Weasley brothers accept the Quidditch challenge, they have also accepted Harry and Ginny's relationship, so the entire conflict that pushed the initial comedy is gone. Well, there's the Super!Harry going on still, and he's suddenly finding himself equipped to fight Voldemort, so fight him he does.

But...! There's no conflict. Really, there's none. As early as Chapter 4 (which is extremely early, considering how long the later chapters are), McGonagall states: "We've already won. Voldemort doesn't stand a chance." And he sure doesn't. Neither do the Weasleys stand a chance against Harry. Nor Cho against Ginny. Nor Pansy against the Blaise/Susan/Padma/Parvati/Luna combo. Nor Snape's dark mark against Harry Potter. Draco becomes good. Pansy becomes good. Bellatrix becomes good. Narcissa becomes good. Cho becomes good. Freakin' DUDLEY becomes good. And Marietta, Pansy, and Pettigrew are all dispatched. This book is a gradual buildup of Harry succeeding, succeeding, and succeeding some more. Before I read this, I thought it impossible for a story to sustain my interest when the hero's eventual victory was made so explicitly clear.

Which brings us to a very important question: is "This Means War" a comedy, a romance, an action story, or a mess? Answer: it is all of these, and it is none of these. It is a story while at the same time ditching some of the most integral rules to making a successful story.

Most importantly, though, "This Means War" is an ideal. Its philosophical overtones begin to come to the forefront at around the time that the comedy and the romance lose their conflict. Harry is the most powerful person in the world; not because he has the skills, but because he has the mindset that does not impose limits. He has an incredibly iron will that will not be bent as he sets forward to achieve peace and happiness for the entire Wizarding World. He is the Ayn Rand version of a superhero--in fact, I suspect that you were influenced, whether consciously or subconsciously, by Ayn Rand; am I right in assuming so?

This story is not a conventional story with the good characters and the bad characters and the ones in between and the intense conflict that leads to the happy resolution. Nor is it a gritty realistic story. It is rather a story of how things could be, if the people in Harry Potter were ALL honorable and upright and united in the cause of defeating evil. It is a very indulgent thing to write, but also very fun to read.

Now, finally, I am coming to the compliments! Yes, this story is a blast. I have read it five times now. However unrealistically happy Harry and Ginny find their romance, it is still VERY romantic and massively enjoyable. Also, I love the way you juggled a dozen plots at once, especially in the forms of M-mails, yet still kept them all afloat (okay, so you dropped the Amorous mode and the spamming, but that's no biggie). The M-mails made a compact format that allowed even more information to squeeze itself into an already complex tale.

The pranks were genius. Any part with sex in it was very sexy without being graphic or cliche. The kiss chase in Chapter 1 was truly funny. In fact, almost all your stabs at humor brought up some laughter in me, or at least a chuckle. Draco's humiliation was also genius, but not as genius as Terry's line: "How do you know if you've never tried?" I found Dudley and Sheryl to be one of the sweetest couples in the story, only a step or two away from rivaling Harry and Ginny. Honest Abe's Original Butterbeer was as edible as a plotline as it was a drink. Heck, ALL the subplots were pretty dang spectacular.

Now for the philosophy. Like I said, it was an ideal. We all know that most humans don't really act so nobly as Harry, and we all know that the general populace won't so universally follow someone of that sort. The split between support and nonsupport would be much larger, and the conflict would be much rougher. However, it is always quite comforting to dream of the world as the way it should be. Nothing could beat the idyllic days in the Garden of Eden, but "This Means War" might very well be my second choice. And as for that Ayn Rand comparison? That was a compliment. I love Ayn Rand.

I will make no complaints about non-canonity and OOC behavior. EVERY fanfic author writes somewhat OOC and non-canon. The only author I can think of who even approaches In-Character is Melindaleo, who is the queen of successful Harry Potter canon fics. Everyone else diverges greatly either in writing style, plot style, or character style. And that is not a bad thing--at all.

Overall, there are a million things about this story that shouldn't work, many of which have NEVER worked in a story before. But somehow they do. They create a trail of litter as the story shifts gear three or four times throughout the story, trailing plotlines and ditching formulas. But, thanks in part to the charismatic characters and your irresistibly indulgent writing style, the story storms along as a rather cohesive whirlwind. And I enjoy every minute of it. I said I reread it 5 times, didn't I?

as someone who discovered the first chapter on the "recently added" page on fanfiction.net, i must say its amazing to finally get around to reading the ending of it. i've always thought you're a brilliant writer and though i dont really read fanfiction any more, i couldnt NOT read this one. must admit, you're getting me drawn into that harry/gabrielle fairy story you're releasing at the moment. which reminds me... i'm next after gabby, or possibly just next if fleur has her way ;P

Well, re-read story. Still great. I forgot, though, that you still included those damn horcruxes, but I'm not sure when anyone had the time to collect and destroy them all.
Too bad Draco got to live. Too bad Snape had to be good and live.
Here's hoping that in a few years, Ginny realizes that she needs to share and lets Gabby join her. I can't see Gabby thinking of Harry as a BROTHER. She's Veela. Her Veela drive must be to the most powerful wizard, right?
You also gave Bill and Charlie the two most sexy females in the story. Must be that Weasley charm (or their family charms).

Excellent story. I really enjoyed the intersting beginning up though the action-packed ending. It was truely a wonderful story and one of the best H/G fics that I've read in quite some time!

Okay i have read all chapters all the way from "Surprise Snog" and i totally luv it. it is so creative and a little twisted but i like that because it shows ur creativaty. Keep writing, just i dont want ot be rude or mean but u really should get ur spelling up to beat and grammer as well just some advice. Either way i will read anything cause this is so good and a little twisted but like i said before i like that.

I just reread this and I still think that its great! I also think that you should write some more Harry Potter fanfiction because all you have done recently is not very long! I love all your stories, even the dark ones-which i normally don't like. Anyway great job on this story I Love It! Thank you so much!

Great story, absolutely loved it! Made me laugh and made me cry. Gotta love it when that happens. So glad I read it when it was fully complete, as it would have driven me bonkers waiting for more.

I do think you could do a fun one-shot with them about thier summer trip across europe to find snorkacks. To even make it funnier have hermione be the one to find them. just my 2-cents.

Cool story. Just got started on Harry Potter fics, and I must say that I was highly impressed with this one. I was really rolling on the floor laughing my head off at some scenes in this fic, and yet you created a good bit of fluff that went hand in hand with it too. Well done!
If there was any crit, it'd just be the spelling and grammar errors that were there, but it was actually pretty much better than many authors that I've read.
By the way, are you going to update this fic on FFnet too? I actually followed this fic from there, and it was a bit of a let down to see that it hadn't been updated in two years, despite the fact that it is completed here. Oh well, thanks for the story and the laugh. NJOY!!!
