Finally, had a chance to write.

My boys turned one yesterday. It's been an insane year. They both require visits to specialists and consultations with various doctors. One of my sons had nerve damage in utero and we were originally told that it was permanent 7th facial nerve palsy, but the latest specialist I've seen thinks that the original diagnosis was wrong. Both boys have gone through physical therapy and we are currently looking for help at getting my one son's social-emotional scores up to speed. I also had a heck of a time getting them to sleep and only in the last month have been able to get a solid 6-7 hours in a row. So yes, not much writing. If you read chapter 15, you can see why these last few chapters have been so hard. I have no passion when I haven't slept and this story needs passion. I still don't feel that I do it justice, but at least I can write now. Thank you for all your messages. I turned off my email alerts to my phone because I kept getting spam messages. This is the first time I've visited this page in a long time. I read through everything and you are all amazing. Thank you for sticking by me even after I pulled a Snape and vanished.

Welcome Back
Welcome back! You just made my whole day/week. My 18 month old is sick so I didn't get more than 30 min straight sleep last night. Not quite what you're going through, but still it's hard. I've had to watch 8 hours of kids shows today to keep my sanity, or maybe that's me losing my sanity.

Ok I'll go read now. Had to drop you a line first ;-) And don't ever feel pressure to write for us if you don't have the passion. This is supposed to be fun and for you more than for us. (But I really appreciate it)

I clearly remember those sleepless nights! I'm sorry to hear about all the troubles but it sounds like you've got a good handle on things.

I'm glad to see an update on the story, but RL always comes first. Your readers will understand.

*hugs*

Firstly, HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY to your boys!! Wow I cant believe a year has past, that means I have checked this story almost daily for that long! I am really excited to read the latest chapter and happy to hear that at least you are maybe starting to get some sleep. It sounds like you have had a very difficult first year with your boys but I am sure you will get through it. I work with children with varying degrees of difficutlies both physically and social/emotionally and I firmly believe that these wonderful children are given to the right parents to care for them. Wishing you and your family all the best.

Welcome Back!
Welcome back and happy first birthday to the boys!!! It's so great to hear from you, though I'm sorry that you've had such trouble during the past year. I hope things continue to improve (especially the sleep part!) and lots of good things come your way in the next year.

I skimmed the story and read the new chapter. I love it. I'm going to indulge and spend time rereading the whole story more thoroughly too. YAY!

I look forward to the next installment when you have the time for it and send you and the family my very best wishes!!

Haven't read the chapter yet, but yay, you're back online! I'm so sorry to hear about your sons. As Gloryah said sending good thoughts over the internet.
And definitely take your time with the story if you need to. We're all here to enjoy your wonderful story and you should be able to enjoy it too.

Hi!
First of all: I'm very glad to hear from you again. I'm excited to know there is new chapter and I'll firstly have to (do my work and mainly) digest the totally awesome thought before reading.

Secondly: I can't even imagine how hard your last year had to be. I hope it'll get better the next years and I wish you to be strong and persistent.

Thirdly: Don't let your hope get down. My cousin used to have visible symptoms of autism, but now he is very cute, it no longer seems he has any other problems than hyperactivity. :) You just have to fight and believe (we will with you) and it'll turn all right.

Fourth: You are correct, you've created a story of great passion, but it no longer is just about it (well, it never was for me) and I personally hope all of us know that. I know it is difficult to write, nearly impossible in hard life situations, but... you had been a great writer before you were forced to stop write and I know, just know that you are even better now, and passion is just a tinny little bit part of it (see? I have a faith in your skills).

Well… thank you for new chapter, for information, additionally happy birthday to your boys, and: welcome back.

Yes!!!! I have been checking this page every couple of months hoping you would update again. Many a bad experience with other fanfiction writers has left me almost bereft of hope, so I thank you SOOO much for eventually coming back to this epic story you have written. I've been following you since Nights of Gethsemane, so to finally get around to Harry and Severus coming together as a couple in a normal (for them, anyway) environment is absolutely wonderful. Absolutely cannot WAIT for you to update again, but please don't wait another 8 months. I just can't take that kind of suspense :D

On a more personal note, congratulations on your first year with the twins! Any pics?

Thank you!
Thank you so much for this chapter, and happy birthday to your boys! I'm sure it's been a difficult year, but I'm glad things are starting to come together for you.

Look after yourself and your family, and write when you can. I love every word!

Patience
Please don;t do a Snape and vanish TT__TT We will happily wait for you to be able to come back and finish it. I check every few weeks to see if you have more up and whenever you do add more to the story that got me into this pairing in the first place, as well as helped me through a lot emotionally over the last few years, I light up. So glad to hear that things are improving for your boys. Wish you all the best of luck with them and yourself.

Please update when you can, but don't feel pressured or upset as we all really appreciate your talent and your storytelling ability and will always be here when you find the time to come back to us xxxx

You don't know how much I wanted to cry when I started reading this series on HPFandom and it stopped before Invictus was completed! I couldn't believe I had started reading such a fantastic fic only to find it abandoned! Thank you for not letting it go! I completely understand that you don't have as much time on your hands - TWO 1 YEAR OLDS! Although I am seriously missing these two men, take your time and enjoy your babes.

I just wanted you to know how much I love, enjoy and appreciate this fanfic!
