Summary: A sixth year fic that explores what might happen if Harry moves past the angst and starts to put his life together and has a few things break his way for a change.
Does anyone know if this story finished on the other site? I read to exactly where it stpped there, but there were several more chapters listed, and the links were no good? Thos is AMAZING and i'm dying to read more
Summary: Post Hogwarts: Ron and Harry are sent to America for Auror training. Ron spends his last night in England with Hermione, and after returning two years later, he finds Hermione with a fifteen-month-old baby ...
I really enjoyed your story. The way you wrote the characters allowed them to remain true to who they were in JKR's books, but with your own style shining through. Also, it seems difficult for people writing romance to convey the magical world sometimes, with no great duels to write about, for instance. "Daddy" was well written and steeped in all the magic of a fantastic setting like the Burrow. Well Done.
Summary: Set Post-Hogwart's, Voldemort has been defeated and the Wizarding world has returned to normal - well, as normal as Wizarding worlds could be. Hermione has a job at Gringott's, the Wizarding bank, but what will happen when an old enemy turns up as a colleague?
Very sweet. It made me smile.
Summary: Oh, I'll tell you a tale of a sainted wizard, of his friends and their adventures in store. And I'll tell you a tale of an evil wizard, of the decimated world torn apart by his war.
But be warned, I say, think not far ahead. For where you might see gain, loss may be instead.
Heavily run the theories and conclusions dreamt out of whims, but know that what you hope lies most likely not within.
She's written the words, and told the lot of trials, tribulations, and soul-eating rot.
But I won't tell you how, and I won't tell you when. Just know your illustrious Bartender has done it yet again
What lies Beyond the Prophecy and Harry Potter's life- who knows? Only the exalted one, Merlin, and the one who writes.
Wonderful ending. It was interesting to watch the development of the writing over the stories in the series. At the begining of the first part, I thought it was a bit simplistic, and really just continued to read because I had nothing better to do. The characters as well as the plot evolved very nicely as the writing matured. Quite a few tears fell as I finished "beyond". Congratulations on a job well done. I look forward to reading the other stuff you wrote.

*Quote from The Epilogue*
Suddenly Harry was kissing her as if he couldn’t resist the temptation. There was a kind of frenzy to the kiss at first, a kind of desperate need, but it melted into something soft and sweet and gentle, a promise of a future when kisses would never be limited. When they broke apart he rested his forehead on hers, sprinkling a few affectionate butterfly kisses across her face. “I love you,” he murmured.
I know know why I always tell myself not to start reading fics until they're completed. Excellent writing, by the way. I love how you switch off on points of view, although sometimes it takes a moment for me to catch up. I love where you're going with Petunia's portkey, but Argh! What happened to Tonks? Still, really great writing, what a tear jerker!!
Author's Response: I tend to shy from uncompleted stories myself, but I\'m glad you decided to go ahead and give this one a try. I\'ve been waiting and waiting to have Petunia\'s portkey come back into play, its one of the few things I had in mind from the very, very beginning, and it\'s so much fun to see it all start to come together!
Summary: One decision leads to an army of consequences, and a lifetime is not too long to spend amending them.
Prologue? I meant epilogue. Oops. I just reread the story and (after reading everything you had posted last night) needed to add to my origional comment. That was, by far, one of the most touching pieces I've read. I normally don't read alot of short stories, partly because of the feeling that I'm left wanting more. Just as I get to know or love the character the way it's written, it's over. The amount of emotion conveyed in such a short work was unimagineable. I grew so attached to Mother Gin, that I could feel my heart breaking within my chest. So good to hear that you will be writing some origional fiction, as you are a truly, truly gifted author. All of your submissions are wonderful, and so unique. The points of view you write from are very well chosen. I really recommend anyone else who is reading this to view some of the other stories, as well. Congratulations.
Author's Response: Thanks, Toni. I knew you were talking about the epilogue. ;)
I\'m honored that you took the time to look at all the other things I\'ve written. There\'s nothing so gratifying as having my work read enthusastically.
If you want some slightly lighter fare, I\'ve a satire called \"A Slow Boat to Shippers\' Hell\" on SIYE (under the pen name \"kschneyer\"). It comes complete with a 13,000-word author\'s note.
As to my original fiction, it goes slowly, but I am trying.
Wow!!!! I balled through the entire prologue. That was amazing. It SO should have won 1st place. AMAZING!!!! I hate people who overuse exclamation points, I'm not sure what has come over me. Really, really emotional, I guess. Bravo.
Author's Response: Thanks so much. I\'ll reply at length to your longer review.
Summary: Long after a war ends the wounds remain. When forced to face something so horrific a part of a person’s very soul dies. People are left changed. Societies are left in shambles
During this time, people are prone to making bad choices. Horrible things are said and done because the bitter continue to fight. How can such a monstrous event ever truly be over? And how can those left behind truly regain their lives
Very interesting. The story was great, but I thought the characters could use a little more development. Any time there was a disagreement, it was solved a little too easily, with characters conceding a bit more quickly than expected.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. That\'s something to think about. I had some concerns about that later in the story...
Summary: When Harry, Ron, and Hermione arrive at Spinners End shortly after 6th Year looking for Horcruxes, Hermione makes a most shocking discovery: Draco Malfoy, dying into the shadows of the abandoned house, alone and helpless. She is faced with a difficult choice - should she leave him to die, or actually help him?
Written for the final for From Fluff to Fanfiction OWL Level class. I am Sarakime of Slytherin.
Wow! Definitely caught my attention. Can't wait to read more!
Summary: “I am in blood / Stepp’d in so far, that, should I wade no more, / Returning were as tedious as go o’er.” (Macbeth, III.iv.160-162) The education, life and times of Severus Snape, with particular attention to the unhappy confusion of his affections and his relations with the Dark Arts. Approximately 20-24 eventual chapters, including Prologue and Epilogue. NOTE: The "AU Warning" is here only because I have disregarded certain elements of the Black Family Tree, which MNFF regards as canon (but I don't).
Looking foreward to following this story. Never really cared for Snape... until DH and what we learned in the pensieve. I loved the dialogue with the sorting hat, and with Lucius as well. You depict Snape as being torn, angry, wanting to belong, and Lucius is explaining life as he's already lived it... Snape knows nothing of true kindness, so it is so easy for him to believe Lucius and fall in line with those who will accept him... I'm grieving for young Snape already. I'll keep reading...
Summary: The war has ended, but there is one more thing that Harry must do before he can be at peace.
Takes place directly after the last chapter of DH.
Oh, jeez... shouldn't be reading this at my desk at work. My coworker just asked me why I was crying...
Author's Response: *hands tissue*
I hope you liked it anway.
Summary: Partially inspired by the song "All I Need" by Within Temptation. Book 7 disregarded.
Harry undertakes one final task; learning how to forgive.
Only parts of book seven are dissregarded, some changed as you'll note later.
Second chapter is submitted at last. First chapter is edited.
Very Interesting, but SO many Wasly deaths, I almost couldn't bear to read it... Glad I did, though. Guilty lovers makes a great premise for a story... Please don't be offended, but I did notice some spelling mistakes, including a character name.
Author's Response: Nope, no offense. I\'m honestly dyslexic and didn\'t have the books to check her name by when I was writing this. Honestly, I nearly spelled dyslexic as dislexic a second ago. Thank you, spell check... ;)
Summary: Harry and Ginny realize they have time.
Very well written. My only problem with DH was thefeeling that so much was left unsaid, especially with regard to the characters that were lost, there was no mourning. This was very natural.
Author's Response: Thank you. I think I really tried to get at the mourning in the other story I wrote at the time, Minding the Baby. That one\'s a tougher read, though. ~Ken
Summary: Draco's redemption after sixth year takes a lifetime to come full circle.
I love it! I Love it! Speaking as a mother who has,at times, felt like I was living only for my children, you really captured it. A child can really bring about a certain redemption in anyone. I'm glad Draco got to learn about unconditional love. He deserved it. Very well written.
Author's Response: thank you. I don\'t have children myself, but it makes me glad that I got the point across. XD And yes, my favorite Ferret definitely deserved to learn about unconditional love. thanks again for your review.
