Summary: After unwittingly consuming a potion, Harry and Draco switch personalities. And though he's horrified at his niceness initially, Draco's starting to have a very warm, fuzzy feeling for a certain Mudblood...
haha, when it said a tall slim blonde professor, and then sharpe, i thought it said snape.
Summary: Remus Lupin is a man with a tragic past, filled with pain, suffering and sorrow. But it is also a past filled with great adventure, true friendship and…love? Even though the odds were against him, Remus found happiness at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He had the Marauders, he was a prefect and his transformations were less horrible, thanks to his Animagi friends. What more could a teenage werewolf want? And how long could his happiness last? Remus and the Marauders prove that in the saddest of lives and darkest of times, there can still be moments of bliss.
Remus centric but with a lot of the other Marauders. This story is a romance, but has almost as much general Marauder era background and side story as romance.
Pre-HBP and DH, so some things from DH will be disregarded, as the warning indicates, but some Spoilers will be incorporated.
Personally, I think this is an excellent example of Remus's character. It shows his nervousness, intelligence, but mostly, his thankfulness for Sirius, James and Peter's company.
It also seems that Remus is reluctant to grow up, (with his lack of developing a relationship Lindi for quote some time) with which seems perfectly like him. If I was Remus, and a life of estrangement, and abuse waited for me, I would want to stay in school as long as possible, and I definitely wouldn't want to leave. Hell, if I went to Hogwarts, I wouldn't want to leave either: D
Also, when he wants to tell Lindi of his condition, it makes me feel really sorry for him, because I know exactly how he feels. Remus is an honest guy, and he greatly dislikes lying.
I like how he worries about what his friends are going to make Lindi do, and how he upholds loyalty to not only his friends, but his girlfriend, and he does it without question.
Overall, I think you did an excellent job, and I can’t imagine Remu’s character being written any other way – the only part I didn’t like was the first chapter – I found it a bit slow, but it is really essential to show the nervousness his parents went through concerning his schooling.
Author's Response: Thank you so much, untitlednine. I am so glad that Remus\' appreciation for his friends comes through. Working on the second half of Chapter 47, Friends Like These, has made me think about that so much, so thank you. I\'m so thrilled that you find my portrayal of Remus believable. He is my absolute favorite character ever and I don\'t want to mess him up. I hope I don\'t! I know what you mean about the first chapter, too. Back when I first started posting, MNFF had a hit counter that authors could see how many hits their story got. Well, it was fairly obvious that many people hit the first chapter and then didn\'t come back. I briefly took it down, convinced it was losing me readers, but I had a few complaints from people wanting it back and I realized I was worrying too much about how many readers I had. :*( I put it back up. It is a little slow, but it has important background info in it and well...I sort of like it. :*) Anyway, I\'m just glad you didn\'t let it keep you from continuing on with the story. Thank you so much for this lovely review. I really appreciate it.
Summary: Hermione goes back in time with one mission: to kill Tom Riddle before he ever comes to power. A difficult task, correct? An impossible one, she realizes, as a love between them grows stronger than anything she has ever known. Now Hermione has a choice to make. Will she condemn the Wizarding world to almost certain destruction, or will she take the life of the one boy she has ever loved?
wow. really, wow. like, nothing to say wow. well done:D
Summary: *COMPLETED!*What happens when you put a hopelessly "romantic" man-hussy and a girl with a soft spot for bedtime activities (not THOSE activities, silly!) together in a dark bedroom? Well, I don't happen to know either, so I suppose we'll find out together, won't we? Come with me, Tia C. Spencer, on a lovely ride through the countryside... er, lakeside... okay, so we won't actually be riding NEXT to anything, but it will be lovely, I promise you that. How can it not be, with me as your illustrious (and quite possibly mad) companion?
And no, contrary to beliefs very likely impressed upon you by this summary, I'm not a gormless prat.
Well... not entirely.
what?? i don't get it??? i want more! dammit. arggh, i'm gonna go drown my sorrows with nicotine, yay.
so, tell me theres a seqal?
anyway, in case you havnt gthered by my enthusiasm, i loved the story.
alright, i've found a sequal, consider me temporairily sedated:D
Winner of the QuickSilver Quills Award, categ. Best Marauder Era.What did being a Marauder truly mean?... Let's just say that some tunes cannot be played by a lone musician; and those four's lives were certainly not soloists' scores. In class or in detention, in Quidditch matches or full-moon wanderings, fleeing before monsters or confronting dark wizards, they wrote, measure after measure, their own eight-handed piece.
Messrs Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs, are proud to present a Symphony for Quartet.
Peter raised his eyebrows. “Y’know, if you’re that hungry, you can ask me for food anytime you want. I always have sweets and things in my trunk.”
that made me laugh.
well done for the first part of the story. how far are you planning on continuing it?
awww, theres no more parts up:( how long until the next one?
its great so far.
i'm just hoping lily wasn't wearing a skirt.

Summary: Chapter Thirty-Eight in Queue!
They say someday your life will flash before your eyes...
The Marauders. The name alone strikes fear into the hearts of teachers and makes girls swoon. Watch as Sirius, who has always kept his emotions locked up in a box, finally finds the girl that has its key; as James masterminds everything, except how to win over the girl of his dreams; as Remus finds love, but learns it's just as hard to keep it going, and as Peter tries to prove he's just as good as the other four, no matter what he has to do. They're unstoppable, and it's safe to say that once they're gone, Hogwarts will never be the same again.
...let's make ours worth watching.
flangst! wow, you didn't ask for a reveiw, so have one.

Author's Response: Heh...I try to think of creative ways of asking for them without annoying people...

great chapter! can't wait for the next, as per usual.
Author's Response: The next chapter will be up tomorrow (No school!). Thanks for reading!
Just to add something, I'm surprised there was no joke about 'Remus's special time of the month.' Or is that not allowed here?
Author's Response: Oh, there will be, but not for another few chapters.
I love the P.S. Sirius sticks on his forehead.
Author's Response: Yes, Sirius\'s little message! Thanks for reading!
very good. two questions- when does the next one come out?
and also, are you planning on writing this until their seventh year? (please)
Author's Response: When does the next what come out? Chapter? If that\'s what you mean, I don\'t know, within the next week or so. I\'m taking this through the first war and the epilogue will be post-DH. Thanks for reading!
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.)
Millicent Bagnold was actually a minister of magic, as it says here, but i think she took the position before fudge, and just before voldermort disappeared for the first time.
so she wasn't minister when this story is set. i think.
Author's Response: I think she was...in HBP, it says Voldemort terrorized Britian for \"nearly four decades\"...it never actually says when, during that period, he disappeared. But thanks for having a keen eye out!
Summary: Two friends sit reminiscing about the past and remembering better times. But the arrival of dire news causes arguments to erupt and choices to be made. Guilt is still felt, the past is remembered, but he won’t let it happen again.
A Missing Moment from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and a submission for the “Spring Challenge: A Different Viewpoint” by megan_lupin of Gryffindor.
excellent. makes sirius's death less.... well, i dunno. but it makes his death seem much better- in the sense that because he believed he failed james, he knew he was making it up to him.
but im still angry that he had to die.
but, it was very well written.
Author's Response: Oh, thanks so much for the review, untitlednine. I\'m glad you enjoyed the story.
Yes, I wanted Sirius\'s death to have a bit more meaning, and James was the way I wanted to show that.
But I agree ... Regardless of how meaningful it was, I HATED the fact that he died. *Misses her favourite character too much*
Anyway, thank you again for the review, (and Sirius extends his thanks as well).
Summary: It’s all about the little things…
If you’ve ever missed somebody special, this is for you.
i remember reading the beginning two sections on the beta boards. i really love this story, it really captures the way you miss someone when they die.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading the rest of it this time around. But I think we miss people all the time, regardless of whether they are dead... Thanks.
Summary: What happens when a Ravenclaw catches Sirius Black's attention? He has a riddle to solve, to find out.
All you have to do is read this story.
i like the 'Honestly, I had never met anyone with such an expressive face.' thing.
all up, its really cute.
Author's Response: Aw, thanks! I\'m glad you liked it!
