Sometimes silence is the best conversation you'll ever have.
I just found out Portkey is gone. So sad : ( Someone e-mailed me at my old e-mail address to ask about this fic and that's how I found out. Sorry I'm not updating this site anymore. I'm just not interested and have not time but it holds a place in my heart. So here are the rest of the chapters from this fic (written in 2002! OMG it's been 15 years. Fuck I'm old).

Thank you to everyone who has commented on Portkey and here over the years. Your feedback meant the world to me and all these years later I still appreciate how it made me feel to know people read something I'd written. Thank you!

thanks so much!!I'm so glad you liked the fic.

I came up with the idea of them not talking because i had been on sort of a marathon of reading HHr fic around that time... just reading tons. And in a lot of fics i found that the dialogue was very cheesy and sort of... it just didn't fit the characters at all. most fics were of HHr older, in 7th year or into adulthood and i think people were writing their dialogue as if they were still 13, only physically older. it was very strange in some cases. a 25-year-old hermione saying things that sounded childish, and harry still acting awkward at 40 years old. stuff like that started driving me nuts.

so one day i just started writing a fanfic that didn't have any dialogue at all. i finished it all in about a week, writing 1 chapter a night until it was done. i'm glad people liked it. it could have been really boring reading that much descriptive text with very little dialogue to break it up.

all the sex helped, hopefully. hehehee.

thanks again.

:lol: :lol: :lol: ahahah that's trueXD I forced all my friends to read it!and they all loved it...just one more thing,everytime I read it there are 2 scenes that make me cry nonstop...the scene at the cemetery (million timez more heart tearing than in DH,in my opinion) and when Hermione fixed Harry's glasses and he thinks how much the things have changed...I started and can't stop!

Hi Kate --just wanted to say how important this fic was to me as well. You captured such depth in this story, and got to the heart of Harry/Hermione. It's really well written. I come back to re-read it every once in a while, as I'm sure others do. Now that Portkey seems to be gone for good, do you have any plans to re-post in full on here, possibly?

Cheers!

Just found out Portkey is gone today. So freaking sad. Sorry I'm not really taking care of this site anymore. I'd fix the forum errors but I honestly don't even remember how to code php anymore and I wouldn't want to accidentally delete something crucial.

I'll always keep the site up and keep this forum going as long as I can because it holds such a special place for me, even now 16 years after I began. (Holy shit! This fic is 15 years old. This site is 16. That blows my mind.)

I've loaded the other 'Taste' chapters to the main chapter list for anyone interested. They're in pdf format. Thank you all!
