How come you haven't updated this fic??

Ahh, this is the kind of story I have ACHED for....I so wish there were more..

This is beautiful....and I was in dear little Ginny's shoes once before, and I know exactly how she felt. 19 years later, and my daughter is all grown and on her own...People make mistakes, but they can be good mistakes. Taking responsibility for ones' actions is important and the first step in parenthood.

I noticed you haven't updated in a few year but I was wondering if you were going to be updating this story..i love it!! and would really love to read more!!
Author's Response: As I have responded to various reviews below, to reiterate, this story will NEVER be updated. I am no longer comfortable writing Hogwarts-era smut-centric fics, as I am a good few years older than I was when I started writing this. I am giving serious consideration to deleting this fic and a couple of others in my list, simply because there is little point having unfinished work that will result in reader disappointment.

I love the plot, and I especially love Ron's reaction when Ginny was going to meet "Him"! Please update soon!
Author's Response: I'm sorry. This fic will never be updated.

LOVE IT. Please please update!
Author's Response: I'm sorry, this story will never be continued or updated. For my reasons and discussion of them, please visit my livejournal. But suffice it to say that I am uncomfortable with teenage hogwarts-based smut stories, and as a result will no longer be working on 'Oh Dear God' or 'Irae Culpa'.

Wow, what an appropriate title! And Molly! Holy moly... It made me cringe for Ginny and laugh in disbelief. Great job!

hey, are you ever gonna update? it's been two years.... update! update!
Author's Response: No, I don't imagine I ever will. Am giving serious consideration to deleting this story and a couple of others on my fic list as I simply cannot stand to read them, let alone continue to write them.

I'm sorry, but I feel Molly is completely out of character. Ginny's family wouldn't be so horrible to her, and Harry would have flipped if he saw her on the map with Malfoy. PLUS, the Room of Requirement doesn't show up on the map.
Also, her mother would NEVER send a Howler like that, for it would shame the family immensely, and she probably wouldn't want to cause Ginny any more heartache than she was already going through.
Finally, she wouldn't have been so cruel with her demand that Ginny tell Hermione and Harry, people who are close, but ARE NOT family, and therefore, really have no right to intrude.
All in all, I feel Molly's just ridiculously OOC.
HOWEVER, on another note, this is a really great plot. I seriously can't wait to see how it turns out. I've read chapter 2, too, and I have to say I think Draco's would have been a bit crueler. He probably would have been shocked, and therefore called her a whore and deny fathering her child.
I apologize for the rant, but I was truly horrified by Molly's reaction. So far, this is a fantastic story, and I'm SO EXCITED to see how it plays out. The complications and insane problems standing in their way are really daunting, and I'm a little worried by how it may turn out.
YAY! *Squees like a silly fangirl*
Off to chapter 3.
Author's Response: Well, as with all things in fanfic, characterisations are open to interpretation, but I have been seriously re-thinking this entire fic anyway since the whole lot of them are out of character and I just hate where the story is likely to go. So horribly trite and cliche. In fact (and it has nothing to do with your review, don't worry), I've been seriously considering deleting this fic because the more I read it the more it makes me cringe and I just don't think I'll ever write any more to it because I really don't like it anymore.
But yes, Molly IS ridiculously OOC, as is Draco. Harry I'm not too sure about. Then again this fic was written pre-HBP so it's all irrelevant anyway.
I might finish the smut ficlets though. Possibly. Maybe.

it is so romatic, and i should no i'm a romance freak. write more.
Author's Response: Hee hee yeah, it is sweet isn't it. Although possibly terribly cliche and i
probable, but hey, thats why we like fanfic right?

This is very good. Keep it up. I'm excited to read the rest, whenever you can get it out.

Geez, I would be mortified if anything like that happened to me. Thank the Lord our parents have to use phones and emails to yell at us...ugh.
Author's Response: LOL. Exactly. Total and utter mortification. I'm so evil to my characters. I'm going to be especially evil to poor Ginny in this fic...
on Mar 04, 2006 03:52 pm
Well, at least Draco is taking some responsibility.
I really like the fact that you are making this as close to "real life" difficult as possible. I mean, obviously certain things have to be adapted to the world of JKR, but you're doing a very good job making it as realistic as possible.
Author's Response: He is. I did debate him avoiding her, but after the circumstances of their first time, where he pretty much let nature take over and didn't stop to think, he can't really step away - he is ultimately culpable.
on Mar 04, 2006 03:52 pm
I like all the conflicting feelings. It's happened with every friend of mine that has had a child outside of marriage (and even with a couple in marriage), and it's very convincing.

Author's Response: Thank you, I'm glad you like it.

Pregnant!Ginny fics always make me a bit wary, but I could tell after the first chapter that you would handle this one nicely. Nothing is too outrageous, and I'm really enjoying where you're going with this. Can't wait for the update.

I like this story and contrary I think this story holds allot of emotional sparing in the minds of the characters. It's what most young adults would feel going through the same thing. People are different so we think situations through differently and slightly the same.

Wow, what a powerful job you have laid for yourself. You must depict the impending parenthoood from both sides. Not an easy task. I don't know how much in depth you want to take this from Ginny's POV but, well... I have been there. Thankfully, it was a false alarm, but still, the fear, guilt and uncertanity eat at a person. My love stayed with me through it all, still married after 24 years and with two lovely sons after 13 years of marriage. It takes a great deal of strength from both people to work through the trauma. Oh gods, how horrible was the pain, the shame and the wondering! You may want to paint Draco a bit blacker, since I know of very few young men who wouldn't take a runner given this situation. Maybe he can vanish for a few days or weeks to get his emotional bubble back in center. Can you imagine what it will be like to tell Lucius?
Anywho, this is very well written, though missing a good chunk of soul withering that one goes through during these times. The attitude taken by McGonagall is not really what I would exptect of Hogwarts. I would have expected Ginny to be pulled before the school council to have her academic fate decided. A court of her peers, you know. THAT would be a super place for Draco to finally stand up and take responsibility for his actions. I really can't see Molly embarressing her only daughter with such an Howler. That is the only major boo-boo I see in this tale. You may want to rethink this one. Perhaps Pansy overhears Ginny and Harry discussing her 'state' and takes manners into her own hands.
You have got a wonderful idea going here and I am looking forward to your next installment. Ginny and Draco forever!

Yikes. Your Malfoy is so sweet. This entire chapter, in fact, was much nicer than the first. I could kiss McGonagall for her kindness. I wonder about the underage thing, though--in America the law says that if the two people are within 2 years of age of each other, it's legal. Is it different in England, or is this just your own law? Just curious.

What a complete and utter bitch!!! Molly, I mean, of course. Did you mean for her to be so utterly wretched? First all she does is attack poor Ginny, and then she sends that HOWLER. Unbelievable. She's so horrible, I hate hate hate her. Ugh. Malfoy's reaction, on the other hand, was quite amusing. I think I'll go reread it.
