I'm a busy but proud mama of three wonderful children who love HP and wife to a non-HP fan. Have to work on him this year. Call it Goal '08.

Goal update: Hubby has now read all the books and watched the movies with me. We're thinking of re-reading #6 before the movie comes out! He's not die-hard yet, but he'll get there, I'm sure of it!

My elder daughter (needsomefelixfelicis) also frequents this site, and is my biggest fan, so you may come across her cryptic reviews for my stories.

This was quite well done. There were a few verb tense and infinitive errors, but these didn't detract from the story. Overall, I thought the emotions were very vivid. Keep writing!

Author's Response: Thanks so much. I\'ll try to keep a closer eye on things in the future. Maybe I can clean up the grammar some.

A Dream Come True by SunDevil05

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: One of Harry's biggest dreams is coming true. A Post DH one shot.

Date: 04/06/08 Title: Chapter 1: A Dream Come True

Very sweet. And I liked how you included the info that Ms Rowling mentioned in her interviews after DH (namely who killed whom, etc.). One thing - it says in "Quidditch Through the Ages" that the games are usually played at night.

All Along by FinallyWork

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: These are the things Ron wants more than anything else in the world.
Reviewer: cjbaggins Signed
Date: 10/30/07 Title: Chapter 1: All Along

Awww ... That was very sweet. The parts of DH you used to illustrate Ron's emotions are some of my favourites bits from the book, so I enjoyed this. Well done.

Author's Response: Every part in DH with Ron in it is probably a favorite part for me (except when he\'s a butt and leaves but that\'s the one exception). Glad you liked it!

Negative Space by Denebola

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: The beauty of what isn't there... If Dumbledore had waited a little longer to relocate it, what might Hermione have seen in the Mirror of Erised? This nostalgic little "What-If?" takes place during Year One, and answers that question with a haunting twist.

Wow. Well done. Good idea, well executed.

Turquoise Jealousy by Indigoenigma

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: People have seen red when they're angry. People haven even been green with envy. But, what does it mean when they see turquoise?
Reviewer: cjbaggins Signed
Date: 12/20/07 Title: Chapter 1: Color

I enjoyed this. I actually read it before but didn't leave a review for some reason. Well done!

Author's Response: Well, I\'m glad you came back and left me a review! Those always brighten my day.

This was very well done! It had humour and pathos; I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thanks for such a great read!

Author's Response: Awww, thanks! \"The Dark Lord\'s Blog\" was my first fanfiction and pure silliness, but after that, I\'ve tried to write stories that had humour in them but didn\'t only serve the purpose of being funny. I\'m glad you thought there was more than humour in this story!

Night Comes Early by shewhoguards

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: Winter came, and with it came the dark. A look at Moody between the first war and the second.
Reviewer: cjbaggins Signed
Date: 11/06/07 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Great story! I tend to start scrolling quickly through long 'insight fics' that take place all in one character's head. However, I read every word of this one! Novel idea, wonderful execution.

A Shimmer in the Moonlight by Angela_Prongs

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: This is a one-shot I wrote for the In-House Halloween Hauntings challenge. (Ravenclaw) Personally, I wouldn’t say it’s the greatest piece of literature ever written, but it sure is quite dandy if I do say so myself!

Sirius Black is dead; we all know that. What we don’t know is that he has some unfinished business to attend to on this Halloween night.
Reviewer: cjbaggins Signed
Date: 11/17/07 Title: Chapter 1: A Shimmer in the Moonlight

Interesting idea, well-executed. I enjoyed all the references to ‘shimmering', it helped to visualise Sirius' new reality! Two tiny suggestions: the line "Ever since that night years ago, you were only ever the only one" was a little tricky to read the first couple of times, maybe because of the repeated ‘only', especially with that word in the line previous and then again in the sentence after, although perhaps that was intentional. Also, even though the word ‘homely' means what you want it to (namely ‘like home'), it has come to mean to many people, I think, the other definition of ‘plain, unattractive'. Perhaps ‘homey' would serve better. Anyway, enough critiquing, I get upset when people do that to me! I enjoyed your story. Well done!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I really do appreciate all critiquing. Thanks! I\'m so glad you like it. I\'ll admit, I was a bit nervous about it. Thank you so much for the review! ~Angela

Very sweet. I'm glad Lily could make him forget the pathos that was his life. I especially loved the last line. How poignant.

Yay. First review.
This is interesting. Waiting to read the next bit.

Snape Speed-Dating by Bethywoo

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: After losing a bet, Professor Severus Snape is forced to accompany Professor Filius Flitwick on a speed-dating event. Will he manage to survive the witless witches and the maddening MC? Or will he leaved with more than he bargained for?
Reviewer: cjbaggins Signed
Date: 06/22/08 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Funny. I especially enjoyed Snape arguing with his doppleganger. I'm curious as to what will happen next. Two tiny nitpicks - the Shield Charm incantation is actually "Protego", not Pretego. And I'm not sure if you spelt the double's ability properly. I think it's "metamorphagus" but I'd have to check in the OOTP to be sure. cj

Author's Response: Wowzer! Thanks for pointing that stuff out :)

All That Had Changed by belladonna_tb

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Exhausted and spent with grief, Harry and Ginny wonder if they can find solace in each other's arms.

Very sweet story. Well done.

Hermione's Great Escape by Ravensgryff

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: Hermione Weasley is just about at her breaking point. She has two options, hex her husband into oblivion or walk away. A short one-shot about the less fluffy side of marriage.
Reviewer: cjbaggins Signed
Date: 06/15/08 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Very well done and incredibly realistic. I agree with another reviewer that what Rose did was cute, but probably irritating at the same time. One of mine once 'mopped' the floor for me. Took so much more work to fix the helping than if I'd done it myself. I disagree with another reviewer that the ending was abrupt. It's perfect the way it is; the abruptness is what makes it work. To me, the abruptness was the whole point of the ending! Well done. cj

A Good Shag by DragonDi

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: An unexpected mission has Sirius teasing Remus about his standards--which leads Remus to do something even more unexpected. (Contains sexual innuendo--but with a title like that, what else would you expect?)
Reviewer: cjbaggins Signed
Date: 05/20/13 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Brilliant! Hilarious and touching in equally-satisfactory parts. cj

Author's Response: I appreciate that very much. Thank you!

Wake Up by coolh5000

Rated: 6th-7th Years •
Summary: Every morning Ron arrives at the shop and wakes up George with a cup of tea. One morning, however, George doesn't wake up.

This started as a 500 word drabble for my DADA class and turned into a 2000 word one-shot instead, before becoming two chapters. The prompt for my drabble was to use an overdose so be warned that this fic is not a happy one. It is actually I lot darker than I really imagine the Weasley family being after the war, but this is what came out when I started writing and I think it is possible.

please note that the warning is for attempted suicide only

An epilogue has arrived and I promise that I have now finished, though I have found this interesting to write so I may carry on with this version of the Weasley family at some point
Reviewer: cjbaggins Signed
Date: 06/16/08 Title: Chapter 2: George

I didn't think I'd enjoy this, but found myself, about three-quarters of the way through each chapter getting into the emotions. Two nit-picks: in the first chapter the emergency portkey glows red, in the second, it is the usual blue colour. Also, near the end of chapter two, Fred says, "Our family need you." If I remember my grammar correctly, family is a collective, singular noun and the word should therefore be needS with the 's'. Anyway, well done. Good fic. Didn't mind the angst and self-injury from George. Most people find it difficult to accept him feeling that way as it is such a departure from his usual self. However, I believe Fred's death would hit him very hard, and although he would recover with time, he would be in a dark place at first. Keep writing. cj

Author's Response: thanks so much for the review and I\'m glad you enjoyed it even though you thought you wouldn\'t. Thanks for pointing out those things - I had changed the portkey colour on one file but obviously it wasn\'t the one I uploaded - I\'ll go fix that as well as the needs thing.\r\nI thought this probably wouldn\'t get a great reaction because it portrays the twins\' serious side and is quite intense but I couldn\'t stop the plot bunnies and I knew that the twins must have a serious side especially after everything that happened. \r\nanyway, thanks again for taking the time to review - it\'s very much appreciated.\r\n-Hannah

The Kiss that Never Happened by Midnight_Unicorn

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Hermione looks back and reflects on what could have been. A poem based on the scene in the GoF movie right after the second task.
Reviewer: cjbaggins Signed
Date: 07/06/08 Title: Chapter 1: The Kiss That Never Happened

That's well done, especially for a first attempt at poetry. I've never mastered that medium myself, so have always admired those who are able to express their thoughts and ideas in that way. Although I don't happen to sail on the same ship you do, I feel you've made the emotions rather believable. Keep writing! cj

Author's Response: Thank you!
