Hell, I would have said that to Snape too.
A short chapter, but I look forward to what's to come. I like how you incorporate the events with Harry, Ron and Hermione while keeping the story centered on Lyra. Many times, OC's can fall flat, but you have done a good job making me care about Lyra, and she's not at all a Mary Sue. Keep it up!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm really happy you like how Lyra's story follows that of the trio because I've always been afraid that it's boring. I'm also glad you don't think she's a Mary Sue! I had some difficulty early on with getting chapters submitted because the mod said she was becoming a Mary Sue. So yeah...thanks for reviewing again :)
UGH!!! Lyra why do you keep doing this to me and all your readers. stop teasing us! Please! LOL. I hope you have a great Thanksgiving.(If you celebrate it.) It was good you put some imperfections in Theodore and Lyra's relationship. I was tired of the mushy stuff. (LOL) can't wait for the next update! xoxo
Haha, sorry, but I love to write cliffhangers. I'm happy you like the imperfections in their relationship. I thought it was a little too perfect so I came up with the fight idea to fill the time between the last chapter and the start of the climax.
I had a great Thanksgiving! Hope you did, too!
More detetion... Poor Lyra, she does have a way of screwing things up! I thought the way it was written was nicely done, but I'm looking forward to getting into the action. Longer chapter hopefully, too! Part of me really wants Lyra to curse Snape, just to shut him up! Another (more rational) part of me wants Lyra to keep her mouth closed! Things will be worked out with Theordore, I presume... I'm looking forward to what's coming up! Keep writing and sumite the next chapter soon!Until next time; Cheers!
Author's Response: Thanks! The action will begin next chapter. And it will be longer. From here on out, most of the chapters are long. You'll find out what happens soon! Thanks for reviewing!
Very interesting, her boggart is snakes...suggests some kind of connection to Voldemort. Or maybe a premonition of something to come? I look forward to reading more...
Author's Response: Good guesses! You will find out! Thanks for continuing to read :)
Hey. LOL. The part when Sanpe was like "I may vomit." I was like, she got that from OOTP and than I looked at your chapter notes and i was right! Haha but good use of resources though. That's one of my favorite lines from Snape. Anyway good chapter though. I was hoping it would be longer, but this is okay. How will Lyra be able to see Narcissa before Voldemort gets to Malfoy Manor? Like doesn't he take refuge there until he go out freely? Oh, and does J.K. ever make it clear why the Longbottom's were tortured ? xoxo ~Marauders_weasleygirl02
Author's Response: Haha, yes, I loved that line :) I know my chapters are short...but there are some longer ones coming up. This was, like a said, a filler chapter that I kind of had to force out. Lyra actually won't be able to see Narcissa...yet. Not until part four. I think the Longbottoms were tortured because they had info on the prophecy. Or the Death Eaters wanted info about the Order. Or...ugh, I don't know...I haven't had the time to read HP as of late, though I really want to :( Anyway, thanks for reviewing again!
I thought it was a good chapter =]
My favorite line was, "'Because the world isn't simple,' he said. 'And it's as simple as that.'" I just like the way it sounds... very philosophical!
Oh, Snape... that nosy man! Will we actually get to see their detention? Or just hear about it?
Those snakes are still killing me... I want to know what they're supposed to mean! All in all, I'd call the chapter a win! Keep writing! Submit the next chapter soon! Until next time; Cheers!
Author's Response: Thanks! I like that line, too. I had to end that section somehow because it didn't quite turn out the way I wanted it to. I made it work. Anyway...you won't see the detention; it's nothing important...just an interesting thing that makes the reader hate Snape even more. You'll find out about the snakes! Not for some time, unfortunately, but it's coming ;)
I really love your story.
i think it is one of the best on mugglenet.
Haven't really heard much on how Lyra is getting alond with the other charecters recently *hint,hint*
I feel your pain, why does school have to give so much work?
Try to update soon (but don't push it),
Author's Response: Thank you! I try to update quickly. I took on so many difficult classes this year that schoolwork takes away just about every free second! Even finding a few minutes to update can be difficult, but don't worry, it'll all get posted. Thanks for continuing to read!
Heyy! Okay, so, I have to say... The reason I'm not sending this through the beta boards is because I wanted to be the 200th reviewer, lol... But I do actually have something to say! It particulary pertains to Bella/Voldemort... First off, thank you for being against them! Apparently, most people don't get the concept that he doesn't love anyone! (I mean no disrespect to these people... but it's like Harmony shippers... delusional!) So, as you said he's not going to love her, but she's going to love him... Hmm... sounds interesting... And now I can tell that the speculations are coming! Bella doesn't love Rodulfous anymore... Will she kill him because he's in the way? Will Voldemort kill him? I mean, this is AU after all! of course, I could be taking that just a *bit* too far =] Anyways, I'm looking forward to seeing what happens! Keep writing! Submit the next chapter soon! Cheers!
Ps. I thought the justifications for Draco letting Lyra in that you had in another review response were well thought out... even if you did make them up on the spot.
Author's Response: Haha, thanks for the 200th review. I know what you mean about Bella/Voldy...I mean, I see why it's a ship, but the thought of Voldy being romantic at all...just...ew. I always love to see predictions! This one opens several possibilities, but I don't think it'll be too predictable. We'll see :) I'm glad you like my justifications. I do make them up on the spot :P Reviewers tend to question me, which is great and makes me think, but other times I want to say, 'it's fanfiction! Just go with it!' Haha. Thanks again.
Hello! I was so happy when I saw the update! Anyway! I really liked the chapter. You got Narcissa perfectly in this chapter. Draco was all right. You could have put in some more dialogue with him, but other than that he was good. Its so funny, my Aunt likes HP and she pronounces Draco's name like Drakooo. Its so Funny. Anyway. I liked the conversation between Lyra and Theodore before they left the train, and it was so sweet that he gave her a present that had red and green in it. Even though i don;t like mushy stuff like that, it was cute. LOL. Anyway. Can't wait for the next update.
P.S. Do you know when Draco's father breaks out of prison? Does J.K. ever mention it in her books?
Author's Response: Thanks! Draco wasn't really meant to be a big part. That's funny about your aunt. It reminds me of when my friend said her grandfather or someone said 'Dumbledorf.' As far as your last question...I think it's sometime between book six and book seven. I remember the beginning of DH mentioning something about a breakout. Thanks for reviewing!
ehh, okay. i didnt really like this cahpter. the ideas were there. i dunno. i cant really figure out why i didnt like it so much. sorry. and why would draco have let her in? and the chances of narcissa telling her anything, let alone her secret thoughts..... not really stciking to the character well i guess. but still, update soon. :D its a good story over all.
Author's Response: Well, okay. There's not much I can do with that. But at least you're honest. Draco could have had several reasons for letting her in: for instance, he didn't want to end up dueling with her or he wanted to see how Narcissa would react (throw her out, contact Bellatrix, etc. just to throw out some ideas). In short, he didn't really see her as a threat because the Cruciatus Curse would get her in Azkaban. And he's a coward, as we learned in book 6 :P. As far as Narcissa goes...she wasn't sharing secret thoughts, she was sharing childhood memories. Lyra managed to crack her shell, find a soft point...you'll find out more about her later, but she has a soft side when it comes to her family (as we saw in the series with Draco). In this fic, she may soft sides for other people...you'll see.
Well, before I read your response to the reviewer below me, I was going to say I'm predicting that Lyra will turn out to be the daughter of Voldemort, not Rodolphus! But I guess that is not to be. I love that ship, but that's just me and my sick mind.
Anyway, I seldom read fanfiction anymore, but I came cross this one a litle while ago and I've been following it. Keep up the good work, it's very interesting!
Author's Response: Haha, that's okay. A lot of people seem to like it. It's not just me. I actually kind of got the idea for this story because I was searching for some Bella/Rodolphus romance fics but all I could find were Bella/Voldy ones. Anyway, I'm glad you decided to read my story! I hope you continue to read :)
Yay for the new chapter! First thing I have to say is this... I love the chapter title! And the relationships that you drew between the brothers and the Blacks!
Also, I loved the length of the chapter!
I feel so physchic... You know, because Malfoy Manor was the place I guessed she'd go, lol...? I like that you've interluded Nott into the chaperters, I think it adds a nice bit of fluff so that chapter isn't too intense.
I really liked seeing Tonks again!
Ick... Bellatrix and Voldemort... Not my cup of tea!
I think that's all for now! Keep writing and submit the next chapter soon! Also, when you submitted this you said you were sick... so, (if you don't already) feel better! Cheers!
Thanks! I love the title, too. One of my favorites. It was hard not to say anything when you guessed Malfoy Manor :P Glad you like Nott and Tonks--they're two of my favorite characters to write about. And don't worry about the Bella/Voldy thing as it will not play a huge role in the story until the end...it's hard to explain but basically I am a very, very anti-Bella/Voldy shipper (Voldemort can't love and we all know it!) but I had to make her love him so that she could not love Rodolphus. You'll see what I mean. There will never be a relationship between Bella and Voldy in this fic for sure :P
I'm over my sickness now, but thanks!
Hey! What's up?! Been busy with school, i usually get on mugglenet to check for updates but other tan that i won't look at the updates for ant of my fav stories. Sorry. Anyway! Love the chapter. Even though Lyra was acting all retarded! (If i offended you I'm sorry) I didn't understand why she didn't just go during lunch or any other time during the day. But thinking about it, it might look suspicious... Anyway. Loved the chapter. Can;t wait for the next update.
Author's Response: I totally get being busy with school. I'm working on a research paper right now...blah. Or I should be, but I'm responding to this. I know it would have made sense for Lyra to go some other time, but she's kind of secretive about her mission, plus she and Nott are keeping their relationship on the down-low for a while. Thanks for reviewing. The next chapter should be up fairly soon. I've managed to find a bit of time to update :)
Great chapter! Update soon!
Author's Response: Thanks! I've submitted the next one!
There was no mention in the previous chapter about a trip to the Trophy Room. Unless I missed it... *rereads chapter*
Author's Response: Oh, I see. There was at the end, when Lyra was talking to Nott after the Quidditch match.
I love cats also, Ms Norris doesn't creep me out as she used to, but I alwasys thought she and Crookshanks should have gotten into a fight. That would've been hilarious x] Someone should right a fic about that! But anyway, moving, on, this was a fantabulous chapter. However, It had me looking back and re-reading the end of the previous chapter to see if there was sonething I'd misread because it's so unexpected. But yes, absitively posoloutly fabulous.
Author's Response: That's an interesting idea! You should write the fic :) I would root for Crookshanks. I'm glad you like the chapter. I'm a bit curious to know what was unexpected about it, though. Thanks for reviewing!
This chapter is so sad but it is still awesome.
Haha, that's generally what most people say about my chapters :)
Sirius didn't get mad! Yay!
Author's Response: Sirius is one of the characters who won't :) He's one of my favorites.
GAH! Kreacher knows.
Author's Response: Yeah, he knows...which may or may not affect anything :)
Will Sirius find out that Linds is the daughter of Bella? Well, I guess I'll have to read and find out won't I?
Author's Response: Yeah, you'll have to keep reading! I figure by now you know :)
