Summary: Meet Tabitha, the fourteen year-old daughter of Harry and Ginny Potter. What happens when she finds herself attracted to the son of her father's worst enemy? Along with a set of new characters, and the return of some old ones, this teen will find the meaning of friendship and family.
I am really enjoying readinig your story. Decimus is a very likable character, and with a very Rowling-like name. Please keep updating it, even though there's some Book Seven Disregard in the plot.
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! (And I started writing this story more than a year before book 7. Of COURSE it\'s going to be disregarded.
Summary: Tom Marvolo Riddle hated the ordinary. He never thought of himself as “normal”, and didn’t want to be remembered as such. Normality was for other people, Tom had decided, he was destined for greatness. And he would go to any lengths to achieve those means…
A partial account of Tom’s life at the orphanage he so hated, showcasing the most important events of his childhood.
Nominated twice for Best General Story in the 2007 QSQs!
Wonderful story! Very well written - it could have come out of one of the Pensieve scenes in HBP.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I really tried to make it realistic.
Summary: While Harry if off hunting horcruxes, Neville and the rest of his friends and classmates are not sitting idly by.
I was thinking it was about time somebody wrote about what D.A. was up to during book 7! This first chapter is very promising.
Author's Response: Thank you :) All through book 7 I was wondering what Neville and the others were doing, so I couldn\'t resist writing about them!
Summary: When second-year James Potter decides to be quill-pals with Severus Snape, he at least amuses himself...
Quite amusing. I'm looking forward to the sequel.
Author's Response: Glad you liked it!
Summary: The Marauders in their fifth year cause trouble and make mischief during the day. During the night, they roam about the castle grounds as a werewolf and three Animagi. Throughout thick and thin, Remus, James, Peter and Sirius are loyal friends.
Very well written. I can't wait to read your next chapter!
Author's Response: Thanks! Hopefully your wait won\'t be too long!
Summary: Before Harry’s fifth year at Hogwarts, he is shown a group photo of the original Order of the Phoenix, back when it was his parents fighting against Voldemort.
But a photo doesn’t show their lives, their personalities, their every day conversations ... or how much organising can be needed to take one single photograph when you have a room full of people – especially when four of whom liked to call themselves “Marauders” back in their school days ...
I completely agree that the part of OotP with the group photo of the first Order is quite sad. However, this story is great - it gives some background to it and makes it a little lighter, too.
Author's Response: I\'m glad you were able to see the darker side yet still enjoy the lighter ... that\'s what I was hoping would happen! Yay! Thanks for reviewing.
Summary: In a world where Harry Potter failed to vanquish the Dark Lord, Muggle-born Clare Morgan must honor her binding contract as a servant to the Ashwood family. Abuse and struggle were expected when she arrived at the manor, but falling in love with her master’s son was not. A story of love, hardship, and the promise that hope brings.
I generally don't read stories in the Alternate Universe category, but I'm sure glad that decided to try this one! Your writing is fluent, and your characters, especially Gavin, are complex. Like other reviewers, I'd like to know a bit more background (especially about Muggle-borns replacing house-elves), but that is my only complaint. Keep up the great work.
Author's Response: Thanks! More of the background should keep coming up, possibly in the form of flashbacks. Thanks for reviewing! =)
Summary: Anyone heard those rumours about a Harry Potter musical?
It better be just like this.
No, but seriously, it's a spoof of the songs from Disney channel's infamous "High School Musical," telling the tale of JK Rowling's infamous "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets." (I was dared; I took the challenge.)
You will never see the Basilisk the same way again.
P.S. You may also want to check out my Beatles and Phantom of the Opera spoofs. Just click on my username and it'll take you to my delightfully chaotic author's page.
Twice nominated for Best Poem in the Quicksilver Quills Awards!
That was so hilarious! I especially enjoyed "What I've Been Looking For".
Author's Response: Oh, thank you very much!
Summary: Fred and George persuade a very young Ron to make an Unbreakable Vow with them.
Very funny! I especially love the ending, where Mr. Weasley threatens to make the twins take an Unbreakable Vow to stop pranking.
Author's Response: I\'m glad you enjoyed, thanks for the review!
Summary: Originally entered into the 2007 Autumn Challenge, prompt New Beginnings.
The boy Remus passes his days in a haze of pain and self-hate, loneliness and terror, with books as his only escape. It is the same every month, and he has lost hope that the cycle will ever end. But then there comes the unexpected ray of sunlight to pierce the haze, and make him human once more.
What a beautiful story! One question - why would a kid who was underage and not expected to go to Hogwarts have a wand? Other than that, the story was perfect. You captured Lupin's character, his worry about being a burden on and danger to others, really well.
Author's Response: Thanks! As for the wand thing, in my twisted mind he was homeschooled. I don\'t know, I never actually considered the fact that his werewolvity would make him unable to ever learn magic. I just thought, well, in real life if a kid can\'t attend school for whatever reason, they\'re homeschooled, so there you are. So\'s Remus. I might clarify that in the next chapter, thanks for the question! And thanks for a lovely review! Phia
Summary: What made Salazar Slytherin one thhe the most influential wizards of all time? What drove him to become all that he was? Where di he develop his hatred toward Muggles and Muggle-born wizards? Join me as we learn what made Salazar Slytherin, Salazar Slytherin.
It was neat how you introduced us to these (assumedly) major original characters before diving into the story. I am waiting for the next update with anticipation!
Summary: After the final battle, Andromeda goes to Hogwarts to find her daughter, meeting with others whom she did not expect to see along the way. Numquam Periit Amor is Latin for: Love never dies.
Sexual Situations are minor, but just to be safe. Character Deaths are canon, and do not actually happen during the story.
I like missing moments, but some are overdone. It's wonderful to find a story like yours that more original and beautifully written.
Author's Response: Yes, some missing moments are over-done . . . I may or may not be guilty of that. ;) Teehee. Anyway, I\'m glad you liked this and found it original, thanks for the review!
Summary: Percy Weasley receives some fictional inspiration after discovering that authority, though Authority, is not always right. Through DH he attempts to do the right thing, smuggle Muggle-borns out of the country without losing his life (or his job), and figure out just which laws he ought to follow.
What a fantastic story! I absolutely love your plot, and your writing flows wonderfully. I can't wait for the next chapter!
Summary: Neville Longbottom finally has a chance to do what he loves: work with plants. Will this chance be just that, or will it be something bigger?
"When he stepped back down, another official handed him a small, heavy bag — fifty galleons in prize money. “Th-thank you,” Neville stammered. 'I — er — I’m honoured — it — did it really deserve that?'" Neville was so in character!
Anyways, you did a great job. I love a story where Neville shines, so I loved "In His Own Right". I'm so glad you wrote this very nice sequel to it.
Author's Response: Aw, thanks! I really became a lot more fond of Neville after writing all about him, and I\'m always glad to see him get his well-deserved recognition.
Summary: To cull her boredom, Vicky Hotham reads newspapers. The murder case of Emmeline Vance catches her eye and she follows it devoutly. But what is she to do when her brother sends her a letter, telling her that he is hiding from the very same people who killed Emmeline Vance?
Written for tc015's Mystery OWL Class.
I've never read a story from a Muggle's point of view before, and I'm really enjoying it! The two plots really keep the story moving, and I'm wondering how the two will come together. I'm looking forward to the next update - you left us with a bit of a cliffhanger!
Summary: Ever since the war ended, Theodore Nott has found little solace in anything, save for his Firewhiskey purchases. Due to happenings and circumstances, he runs into the most unlikely people and places, ones that may just be able to help him as he trundles along through life.
This is a story of pain, loss, regret, bitterness. This is a story of joy, laughter, forgiveness, hope. It's a story of second glances, second considerations, second chances. And first chances too. Curriculum Vitae is Latin for: The course of one’s life.
This story was the overall winner of the '07/'08 Winter Tales Challenge. It also took the 2009 QSQ award for Best Post-Hogwarts Chaptered story. I am as stunned as I am grateful. Thank you.
This is a fascinating story. It's a little darker than what I usually read *blushes*, but it's well worth it. I love the complexity, shaking my prejudices by showing a very different side of Slytherins than we usually see. Bravo!
Author's Response: I\'m so glad you like it. The Slytherins can\'t be all \"evil\", eh? ;) Thanks for the review!
Summary: Severus Snape had been brewing potions since he was eleven, and had never found one he hated more than Amortentia.
When Severus finds Amorentia brewing in Slughorn's classroom, he thinks of someone he didn't need a potion to remember.
What a lovely portrayal of Snape's love of Lily! You gave us (your readers) little glimses of his relationship with her in various phases of her life.
The perfect touch was Snape seeing Lily's body. It was original, and quite touching.
Just like Lily's eyes did for Snape, your story will haunt me. Unlike Snape, though, I'm glad it will.
Author's Response: Thanks! I\'m glad you thought it was original, and while I don\'t want my story to haunt you, I\'m happy you\'ll remember it. =D
