Summary: It’s October, and everyone has come back to Hogwarts to complete their education. Except space is cramped, Hogwarts is still somewhat in ruins, and getting the morning mail is a disaster. Things only get worse when a love letter that was both anonymous and unaddressed lands squarely in between Hermione Granger, Lavender Brown, Harry Potter, and Seamus Finnigan. Lee Jordan and the Weasley twins make it their business to fully take advantage of the situation by creating both a radio show and a betting pool to find out who the letter was for and who it was from. Thus leaving all the students to wonder… When will there ever be a quiet year at Hogwarts?
Disclaimer: Here’s the standard ‘I don’t own HP and I’m not making any money off of this,’ speech, because lol I don’t. Though there is a lot of hurt/comfort in this. It’s WAAAAY more comfort than hurt. Please forgive the formatting of the Radio show and the Radio Show’s name… It was meant to be a place holder but I couldn’t think of anything to replace it with.
Author’s Notes: Well after countless cups of coffee, and crying to my beautiful, wonderful betas Orgnzdchaos (for moral support, ethics questions, monitor of ridiculous cheesy moments and canon), Traincat (moral support, and helper of writing kiss scenes), and to gelsey-mod who generously helped catching the MANY embarrassing mistakes I thought I had fixed!!! this fic is finally finished! It’s the longest thing I’ve ever written, and I’m so happy I had the opportunity to write it.

I especially want to thank our amazing mods for giving me the extension. Anyway I hope you enjoy it!

I've wanted to read this one and decided that I would have to take it in parts. Just finished Part 1! :) Terrific start! I love how you've included everyone in the banter, teasing, and such. A much more light-hearted post-war fic than one would usually see. Cho still bugs me for some reason BUT I keep chuckling over "Boring...at least by Harry Potter standards". LOL I seriously think that needs to be a new motto, I mean I could see myself saying that in an everyday setting! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I also forgot to point out a couple of other favorite parts. I love the humor and affection between Hermione and Ron as they work through their "awkwardness". Very in character for them and Lovely! But Ginny going after her brothers was the BEST! I just kept chuckling over that!! LOL

I have to sleep now, will come back for parts two and three tomorrow! Great start MA! :-D

Oh god, I just saw all of your comments, because of Nanowrimo and yuletide problems. THANK YOU SO MUCH! I'm so glad you liked it! I know I threw some dark stuff in there but I'm always more comfort on the hurt and comfort spectrum I was really worried it would bother you and I'm so relieved you liked it in the end! <3

Finished Part 2:
Definitely a more serious and intense chapter for most of your characters. But I love the cooperation you have going on with somany of them helping each other for the good of someone else. Certainly felt like the meatier part of the story and still nicely done MA. :-D

Well I Finally got back to finish part three! LOL I was pretty sure that Draco wrote the letter after the second part but I Loved the "reveal" in the story. Hermione being happy but ready to kill Draco at the same time was Perfect. I had to laugh when she mentally calculated that Ron had never pissed her off as much as Draco! HAHAHAHA And then Neville butting in to Susan's interview, So Sweet!! So everyone is paired up and happy at last. Wonderful story and perfect ending. Marvelous work MA! :-D

This was a great story! I loved all the different pairings and that it brought a lot of couples together in a way :) And I'm so glad Draco and Hermione worked things out <3
