Summary: Chapter Ninety Six is posted!
This is the story of four boys. This is the story of a boy from a family he wants to escape from. This is the story of a boy who is from a family he loves deeply, but lacks the gift of a best friend.

I have really enjoyed reading this story, I hope you update soon, I'm dying to know what happened!
Author's Response: Glad you\'re enjoying it. Chapter 13 will be in the queue soon. Thanks for reading!
Summary: All her life Ginny has tried to live up to the expectations set by those around her, and more importantly herself. When Harry breaks up with her Ginny thinks she realises what she must do to acheive this perfection but this soon turns into an obsession she can't escape.
Warning: The main focus of this Story is on the effects of an eating disorder, if you get easily upset by such issues I suggest you dont read.

*Chapters 1 and 2 have been edited*
I really like this chapter. It explains how addicting and awful eating disorders are. Update sonn!
I've read the last few chapters a few times, and I think you did a great job in portraying Ginny's thoughts and emotions, even though I'm pretty sure it would take something a little more dramatic than Harry breaking up with her to get her to break down like this, I really like the plot. Update soon, can't wait to read more! : )
Author's Response: It\'s not just the break up with Harry, it was just that is what pushed her over the edge. Remember there is so much going on around her, the war, half her family in the order, probably stressed with school like every other student. Anorexia is alot about having control and she can\'t control these things so she has looked towards something else that she can keep control of. Thanks for reading and reviewing. emma x x x
Summary: Hermione Granger is pursued by a relentless Draco Malfoy. And what a Malfoy wants, a Malfoy gets!
Wow, 132 reviews... yet I can't help but add one more. :)
This was amazing, and clever, and hilarious, and my family is going to have me committed because I laughed for twenty minutes straight! Your portrayal of Malfoy was the BEST EVER.
PS: Any idea how long it'll take me to stop laughing? I'm getting worried....
Summary: What I hope is an appropriate send-off for the loved ones we lost in Deathly Hallows. Hope you like it.

This was a wonderful poem,
It made me cry all over again.
For those wonderful people we lost,
It summed up the pain.
Author's Response: *giggles* A poetry review for a poem! Very shnazzy! :D Thanks!
This was a wonderful poem,
It made me cry all over again.
For those wonderful people we lost,
It summed up the pain.
(Hope you don't think I'm a cheesy, poet-wannabe twit, this is just how I feel. Thank you. I needed to stop and think about those we lost.)
Author's Response: Awww, never a twit. I\'m glad you liked it enough to say that; the many deaths made me cry buckets too.
Summary: James Potter has just informed his fellow Marauders that Lily Evans finally agreed to go out with him. His best friend Sirius Black is feeling rather evil and naughty and cooks up a scheme to follow James and Lily under the invisibility cloak on their first date for pure Marauder fun. He convinces Remus Lupin and Peter Pettigrew to join him. But things don't go as planned and much chaos and unexpected events unfold...
The title was inspired by Fall Out Boy's album title, From Under the Cork Tree.
This is a good story. I can't wait to see what happens, so update soon! Sirius' character is really good!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I\'ll try to update as soon as I can!
Summary: Looking to past classes, James and Lily discover things they always knew...some things never change.
This is great! You should continue it, that would be so awesome of you! : )
Summary: Lily Evans is not happy. Voldemort is gaining power, tensions between herself and Petunia are growing, her bridesmaid dress is pink, and to top it all off, JAMES POTTER is the new Head Boy! Despite such a biased pairing, can the two become a serious couple, or will they, like so many others in such a distrustful time, be ripped asunder?
This is a really good start, and I can't wait to read on!
Summary: Myrtle has been lonely for years without Harry, but when she meets someone too similar to him she realizes the fun can begin all over again.
This is really good, but I don't think James had green eyes. The book said "Alone of Harry's three children, Albus had inherited Lily's eyes." You may want to fix that, but otherwise I think it's very funny, in a wierd-ish sort of way.
Author's Response: Yeah, I was kinda confused on that too - I didn\'t have my book on the time and I\'d only read the epilogue once, the night it came out. I wrote this about a week ago and I don\'t really have the best memory - but thanks for pointing that out! And thanks for reading and reviewing :]
Summary: There is more than one hole in George Weasley, other than the one of the side of his head. Ever since Fred died he'd been different, so his often neglected fiance Angelina suggests he adopts a child for two weeks to see how he would fare as a father. George does just that, and adopts Holley, who had also lost a twin. They both expected nothing of the experience, but soon learn truly what love is. And how to heal that hole in both their hearts.
This is funny! I can't wait to read more!
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m going to start writing the second chapter momentarily!
Summary: All of his life, Harry has never had anything whole — only pieces of loved ones lost.
For a sec at the beginning I thought it was Petunia's POV, you know, her feeling sorry for him...it kinda worried me. Dumbledore makes so much more sense. Good job!
Author's Response: LOL, that would worry me, too. ;)
Summary: The feud between Slytherin and Gryffindor has broken many friendships. But only two have changed wizarding history.
Godric and Salazar.
Lily and Severus.
That was great! Very very sad...but great! I liked how it went through time instead of being imobile in one place...good job. And Merry Christmas!
Author's Response: Merry Christmas! Thank you- Since i read DH, i\'ve taken a huge interest in Lily\'s life. She had a really good friend, but the houses took it all awy. Blame the houses. Thank you so much for reviewing!
Summary: The summer after fifth year, Severus Snape realises that he has to decide between Lily and his Dark companions and pursuits. Now all he has to do is get used to life at Hogwarts with no friends, get over his fascination with the Dark Arts, survive the Marauders, and convince Lily to acknowledge that he's alive.
Easier said than done.
I love love LOVE this story. I've been with this since the beginning, and then I fell behind with the reading.... Anyway, I'm not sure if I've commented on previous chapters, but this is absolutely brilliant. (I know this last chapter was written forever ago, too, but... I did fall behind!)
I'm so happy you wrote this. I love how Sev is SMART and witty, and you have a very extensive vocabulary. :) This is probably one of my favorite fics ever, so please keep on writing!!
The depth you give all these characters is so believable, they have more than one layer to every emotion. You give them a lot of thoughts that really help narrate the story in an intriguing way, and they are all very dynamic characters, too! Even the OCs, who usually are very hard to connect with, but I love Mary in this story--funny and charming girl, I can tell she really loves Sev and Lily.
Can't wait for another chapter!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for such a kind review. :) I am trying to keep up with this, but one beta has disappeared off the face of the earth, and the other is looking at the next chapter right now. I have to admit that I'm a bit stuck on their 7th year-- I'm having a much easier time writing their post-Hogwarts life than their last year as students. But I'm still working away at it. I'm glad you like the character of Mary-- I thought a story that was all Severus, Lily, and the Marauders might get a bit predictable. :)
“…he fell through the ancient doorway and disappeared behind the veil, which fluttered for a moment as though in a high wind and then fell back into place… Sirius must be just behind the curtain…”
Sirius Black didn’t die when he fell through the veil in the Department of Mysteries. He was transported to another world: our world, where Hogwarts doesn’t exist and magic lives only in the fantasy books. As Sirius tries to understand this strange new world and find his way home, he runs into some unlikely old friends. Nothing is the same behind the curtain.
'Avatar' soundtrack, nice. :)
I really like the story! I'm actually writing one about the veil, too--didn't know it was so popular!--and anyway, it's not in yet. But I don't think it can top this one, very suspenseful and well done. Can't wait to read the end!
Author's Response: The veil is an interesting concept, isn't? I'm looking forward to reading your take on it. Thank you for reviewing! Peace, Virgil
Summary: A collection of poems, written by their respective marauders. Poems about food, some not about food, others about girls, and still others about the trouble of the moons. All teenage problems, and others, are written here!
NOTE: I HAVE ADDED ANOTHER POEM TO POTTER'S PROSE!!! PLEASE CHECK IT OUT!!!
'In the wrapper or on the street...'
Oh yes, I can see that clearly. :) I laughed quite loudly at that, nice work! No hate mail from me I'm afraid.
Author's Response: Thanks so much!!!!
I like Peter's Poems more, I'm sorry! But these are great too, I love the excellent vocab use, with "surreal" and "Gubraithian": not words you hear every day... so I hope you continue that with Remus's (Ramblings? Writings? I don't know what alliteration you'll choose...).
I'm favorite-ing this!! :)
Oh wow, that was really good. It was very sad, and thought-provoking, too. Not some crazy romantic-fling-style fic, but much deeper.
I've never even considered the idea of Lily and Regulus, but this was very well done. (I probably won't go buy a t-shirt emblazoned with R&L, but still....) Spectacular writing! :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much for reviewing! This review made my day. :] --Mere
Actually, I like your song lyrics. :) They're like some indie wizarding band's obscure song lyrics that got caught up in mainstream pop. But I digress, I tend to over-think these things. The characters are really developing so well. I love the closeness of Lily and her friends, and how some of the characters you've mentioned in passing are related to ones from Harry's days.... (MacMillan, Wood, Greengrass; aw, now I feel all nostalgic!)
Haha, the PMS stuff was amusing... but likely I only find it so because I'm a girl.
Inter-house parties on the Quidditch Pitch? Genius.
I have nothing but praise for this chapter, and I eagerly await the third. :)
!!! (I couldn't think of an appropriate exclamation to start off with... but I think three exclamation points gets the point out there.)
You shouldn't have been nervous at all about posting this! At first, I didn't like the idea of Lily being a troublemaker, at all. Then, before the chapter was half over, I was in love with the idea. :) Interesting, uniting the Lovegood-Potter family--it makes a very unique relationship. (And it was a very nice touch mentioning Rose and Scorpius, too.)
Waiting for the next chapter!
