*giggles hyterically* What you did tp old Lucius was just hilarious! That has to be the worst fate any Malfoy had to suffer for a looooooooong time! And the way Narcissa enjoys the whole thing makes it all the sweeter!
:) I got my "Severus-Happy-End"! Yaaaay!
Now I need more "Draco-Happy-End"... and Severus still needs to meet with Harry's Slytherin sister... for the fun of it^^ That meeting simply has to be hilarious^^

Draco's happy ending will be seen, but you'll have to imagine Severus meeting Lyssa for yourself.

So I started reading this wayyyy back when, but I couldn't keep up with the updates, so I stopped. Now that it is (almost) finished, I've picked it up again, and I just wanted to squee over the fact that It's A Dangerous Game is in here. I <3 Coleen Sexton.

That was so sweet and beautiful and I just could not stop smiling all the way through.
It sounds like the perfect world for me. Oh be still my foolish heart.......
So glad that you have decided to do a sequel. Your 'worlds' are quite addictive and I keep craving for more and more.
But a bit more FD would be absolutely fantastic.
Hope your muse and inspiration will keep 'speaking' to you.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Hugzzzzzzz!
Ooh I has hugs. Thankee. More FD is soon!

Waaaah! (mops eyes) That's so beautiful!(snif)
And very nicely done with Lucius and Narcissa, as well. I can hardly imagine a worse punishment for that man than to be silenced and unable to hurt anyone, and then to add insult on top of injury... I am fortunate to be so insignificant as to have no need to fear irritating you! (Even Bob and Alyx would only kill me painfully if I annoyed them, after all.)
Hey, this is timestamped from the 27th, and it's the 28th now, and you said "tomorrow"... so I might get to read two in one day, if I check back every so often! WHEEEEE!!!!!!!
*giggle* I'll be posting soon. But don't ever wager on your insignificance...

How Draco defeated the dementors is still a little unclear to me and it kind of leaves me feeling like I missed something. Oh well, I guess that means reading it over again, not that that is burden in any way ^_^
And if that had been the last chapter, I would have had to hunt you down and smacked you. Not that it isn't cute, but I would like the last chapter to close with Draco's relationship with Luna. (hint, hint)
Draco generated basically a massive Patronus that drove away all the dementors at once. More details next chapter. Oh, we'll see our Malfoys...

*cheers and dances around* I don't care how long it takes as long as the sequel eventually evaporates! Yay for weddings! Yay for joy! Yay for punishments far too just to disbelieve!
*giggle* Yeah, Lucius really does deserve something like that, doesn't he?

Appropriate fates for Narcissa and Lucius - and who knows, wait long enough and maybe he'll even catch on.
Otherwise just plain lovely - and we get one more chapter, too. I never did care for tales that end the minute the quest is ended.
Hey, it could happen. Plenty of new chapter, including a nice epilogue!

Awww, that's just too sweet! Look forward to the last chapter tomorrow.
It'll be up in a few hours.

I'm almost going to be sad to see it end. Will we get a brief glimpse of how Draco's disappearance is taken in his birth world, as hinted at in Ever Ever After?
Nice to see Snape and Cecilia get their happy ending; it definitely brought a smile to my face, as did the dialogue between Snape and Draco. The latter was simple, but it worked.
Narcissia and Lucius' fate seems fitting as well. Given your fondness for Lewis, are some of the similarities to The Great Divorce (namely, that this seems to be Purgatory for Narcissa but could very well be Hell for Lucius) intentional or just my imagination?
Bring on the sequel! :)
Does a full reading of Draco's will count as a brief glimpse? ;-) Call it semi-intentional, since that's one Lewis work I haven't read.

Getting a bit anxious, are you? Posting over three hours earlier than ever before? Wanting to read the reviews before you go to bed? Well, add my glowing one to your list. This was a totally awesome chapter, and I enjoyed it so very much. My husband is looking at me strangely for grinning like a loon throughout the entire chapter. I think my favorite line was when Paul (Pol? short for Apllo?) ran into Severus. Whe whole exchange left me chortling. Have a fresh homemade chocolate chip cookie - my daughter just finished baking tham.
Oh, dear. Poor NArcissa. Actually, I think even the part where Lucius has to be present isn't as onerous as she once thought it was since he has CAN'T TALK! That is great! And it will be torment for him.
I would say the wedding was anticlimactic, but they have been waiting for it for years and years. I can't remember, but who were the three that were at the wedding (other than Draco and Luna and Lily)?
I anxiously await the dénouement of your story. Tying up all the loose ends and so forth. Will they look back into the canon world to be sure that everything worked out for them, too?
I read some of the other interpretations on the prophecy, and I agree with some (why didn't I figure out about the "flight" being Voldie, I'll never kniow, because I've known what his name meant for ages), like MLM97's ideas about Luna becoming Malfoy and Cecilia's name maybe being a play on the latin for blind. sorry to keep frunning on, but I have really, really, really enjoyed the story. I think the next chapter might deserve something extra special. Do you prefer Godiva or Ghiradelli? Light or dark? Creme, praline, nut, mint, or caramel? I'm serious here - send me an address and I'll put it in the mail... You deserve it. You are, hands down, my favorite Harry Potter fanfic author.
Ooooh fresh cookie. *nom* Weddings don't have to be fancy. Their original witnesses were Dumbledore, Tom, and Minerva. And chocolate? Mmm. Ghiradelli dark plain, if possible... address will be forthcoming soon!

And once again it is demonstrated that you don't have to only take the shotgun off the mantle once... :) That and incredible joy magnified by focus equals really fun eucatastrophe. Nice job, and I'm glad you're going to let us see some of the celebration.
*grins* I like me some big guns!

now thats more like it. Words can not express my joy for this lovely chapter
Thank goodness you like it! I was getting worried...
ClarenceRose posted a comment on Wednesday 27th January 2010 4:43pm
You definitely had me worried for a second there.
I like that Harry actually kills Voldemort.
Snape's revenge next???
He was really only trying for a Disarm, but yeah, the canon ending felt the tiniest bit contrived to me.
ClarenceRose posted a comment on Wednesday 27th January 2010 4:32pm
Happy ending for Severus!
Yep! Don't you think he deserves it by now?
BaltaineShadow posted a comment on Wednesday 27th January 2010 3:44pm
Wow! You did it! You created the perfect Happy End for me^^
But does Cecy already know that HER Sev is there as well? Or am I just as confused as I think I am? Well... I guess I'll find out soon enough, huh? :)
Two more chapters, right?
Right. Yes, Cecy knows.

haha ive really enjoyed it and cant wait for FD
MLM97 posted a comment on Wednesday 27th January 2010 11:58am
To get my guesses on the prophesy in before the official answer:
I think 'no sight' is Anne making a Latin pun--Cecelia resembles caecus, "blind." Similarly, the argent orb becoming forsworn is in reference to Luna becoming Luna Malfoy.
Still stuck on whether the fleeing with two others refers to the encounter with Isabella (who could very well be the warrior foe) or the climax ("ends the flight" could mean either Isabella being caught after her escape, or the end of Voldemort, "flies from death").
Bingo on the first two. Warrior foe ending the flight is a reference to Harry and Voldemort. 'Twill all be covered in the final chapter.

I have a big tub of movie popcorn here for you. Let me know if youwant butter. Well done, Anne. Sorry I didn't offer earlier, but I was so excited about Draco making it back to his preferred 'verse.
Question - are you going to resolve the prophesy for us? (I found my copy, and learned that it was from chaper 14 - I NEVER would have found it again.) I know that it is mostly complete (if not totally). Is the "ruthless one" Snape? "Accepting the gift of the serpent" (from Draco)? I thought no sight meant the dementors, but I don't think that's right. And what about the "argent orb [becoming] forsworn?" Is that talking about Luna? The "faith is broken" part bugs me, because I have no clue what that is talking about. And aren't there two Lunas in the 'verse with Draco now, since Draco brought canon Luna with him?
Have I told you lately how much I adore your stories?
No butter, thanks. Yes, the prophecy will be resolved in the final chapter, and you're almost entirely right about it. Yes, two Lunas--the one who was born in the otherworld uses her nickname, Starwing, and is going to marry Ray Beauvoi.
