I'm 24 years old (born Jan. 13, 1984 (a Friday mind you.)) My dad is more or less responcible for me getting into Harry Potter. He bought the first book to read to see what all the hype was about. After finishing reading it, he gave it to me and I've been a fan since then.
I'm currently working on two stories (A Different Choice at King's Cross and Snape's Second Chance). Between the two of them, Snape's Second Chance is my favorite. I'm currently writing Chapter 4 for Snape's Second Chance.
In addition to Harry Potter, I also like Star Trek, Star Wars, and Lord of the Rings.
Summary: [Year 2: Complete] Its Harry’s second year as a Slytherin, and the Chamber of Secrets has been opened. The Heir of Slytherin is out there somewhere, having students petrified left and right, and by the end of the year someone will die from Slytherin’s horrible beast. But this time, Harry's the one with Riddle's diary.
How will Harry’s years at Hogwarts turn out, now that he's a Slytherin? Will he turn to the Dark Arts and be a follower of Voldemort? Or will he kill Voldemort, or die trying, after he learns of the prophecy? Will Harry's choices lead him down a different road? Follow and you will see...

I'm not sure if anyone has asked this question (I'm to lazy to go threw all the reviews to see if someone has) but how did Ron and Hermione get into the Slytherin common room? Earlier in the story it was said (and demonstrated) that only a person worthy to enter a house common room would be allowed to enter. Ron being able to enter the Slytherin common room seams believable but Hermione? I would think that the fact that she's muggle born would not make her worthy enough to enter since Slytherin felt muggle borns weren't worthy to study magic.
Author's Response: No, I don\'t think anyone asked that!! Good for you! I was actually waiting for someone to because I have an answer. You can trick the common room into thinking that you\'re someone you\'re not. So when Ron and Hermione dressed up like Crabbe and Goyle it didn\'t think that they were otherwise. It could possibly be tricked other ways as well. I always felt that Slytherin would allow a Muggle-born if they had the the qualities of a Slytherin. Thanks for the review! ~Sara
Summary: Harry would give anything to have his parents back...what if he got the chance to? Harry, Ron and Hermione get mysteriously sent back in time to when the Marauders were in school, and Harry attempts to alter history. Can he get his parents back? Or will he only end up messing up the future forever? (Note: Rating and Warnings will change in later chapters, while the first few chapters are very mild.)
I think I have a hunch on how you're going to get Harry's parents together. I think a few memory charms are coming up...
Author's Response: My lips are sealed! (lol)
I've re-read things and noticed a little problem with what Hermione said in Chapter 3 about why Harry didn't have his invisibility cloak. Hermione said that Harry didn't have it because James had it in the time period they are in. If that is true, then how is is it that everything (and everyone for that matter) that was brought back in time still exist since the matter that makes them up also exists in that time period? Also, in PoA, Hermione was not only in more then one place at the same time, so was her stuff if I recall. Am I making any sense here or am I for the millionth time today saying a bunch of confusing stuff? (Make sense of time travel confuses me)
Author's Response: I understand what you\'re saying...but look at it this way: Harry\'s clothes and books and stuff were most likely created after he was born, so that doesn\'t apply here, whereas the Invisibility Cloak (which we now know as a Deathly Hallow) and the Marauder\'s Map were created before 1980, and were already owned by someone. Anyway, thanks for reviewing!
Oh my... Harry's past is really getting screwed up. Especially now that his has an older half brother that is also his son assuming that Harry is even going to be born in this new time line. I feel sorry for Harry. Especially now that Ron and Hermione are back.
Author's Response: Yeah, Harry needs to see the ramifications for his actions, and fast...hence, he will be going back to the future in the next chapter to see all he\'s done. Thanks for R/Ring; hope to see you at the next chapter!
Summary: A message, written in what appeared to be a large quantity of blood, was daubed across the wall. In dripping bright red letters Neville read “THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS IS NOW OPEN. FLEE, MUDBLOODS, OR DIE.”
In the first sequel to Neville Longbottom and the Philosopher's Stone (prior reading recommended), Neville, the Boy-Who-Lived, enters his second year at Hogwarts, and confronts prejudice and discrimination in the wizarding world and an ancient threat to Hogwarts itself.
How will Neville face these challenges and what new secrets will be discovered? Welcome to Year 2...
I knew it! Harry is with Sirius. Anyways, I'm guessing we'll have to wait till book 4 or 5 to find out what happened to Harry's parents?
Author's Response: Actually, it\'ll probably be hard to keep where they are out of book 3, but you won\'t get the full story until book 4, no.
Hmm... Wormtail has run off and no mention of what's going out side of Hogwarts... The next "book" should prove to be interesting.
Author's Response: I liked the idea of events building on each other. Ron is in a bad way after being possessed by the diary, so Harry offers to have Ron stay at his house, necessarily bringing Scabbers along. Pettigrew overhears and knows he\'d be discovered, so runs off. A chain of events is set in motion... PoA should definitely be interesting.
This seams very interesting. I sure hope that Dobby seals the barrier to Platform 9 and 3/4 before Ron and Harry go threw it so the flying car would be stolen. It would be very interesting and insightful to see what kind of letter Harry would get. I have a hunch something happened to Harry's parents in this alternate universe you created because Harry's parents lived in Godric's Hallow which based on clues in the books is somewhere in Wales and I doubt Harry and Ron would have known each other for years if they didn't live near each other. So either Harry's parents moved to Ottery St. Catchpole or something happened to them and Harry is living with Sirius Black who is living in Ottery St. Catchpole.
Author's Response: You have some interesting insights here, which is all I can say for the moment! I think you might find chapter 3 interesting. One thing I\'ll say, Harry doesn\'t live in Ottery St Catchpole. I figured in the wizarding world distance doesn\'t matter so much and it\'s easier for people to know each other. As to where he actually lives, I can\'t tell you yet!
Summary: This is the sequel to “Changing the Past”, so I advise that you read that first.
Harry tries so hard to do the right thing, but only ends up making things worse. His addiction to changing the past has only changed the future...for the worst. He has seen the error of his ways, and must find a way to set things right. There are no more second chances.
Harry is determined not to be dependent on his friends any longer. Leaving Ron and Hermione in the future, he travels back to try to fix everything he’s done. Join him as he attempts to do the impossible: change the future.
Yay! An update! Anyways, Harry sure has made a mess of things. Hopefully he can figure out a way to salvage it... The baby presents a huge problem. Hopefully they can work out something that wont stir up a firestorm among the readers of this story. Correct me if I'm wrong but is this misunderstanding that prevented this chapter from being validated had something to do with the baby?
Author's Response: Exactly...there was an issue with my moderator about incest involved in the story. I thus have to be careful with what I write in future chapters, and I may have to alter some things in the future, but it won\'t affect the eventual outcome. Thanks for reading!
