Hogwarts Houses Divided by Inverarity
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 395]

Summary: Past Featured Story

Teddy Lupin's first year at Hogwarts. Canon-compliant. Nominated for a 2008 QSQ for best Post-Hogwarts story.

The war is over, and all is well, they say, but the wounds remain unhealed. Bitterness divides the Houses of Hogwarts. Can the first children born since the war's end begin a new era, or will the enmities of their parents be their permanent legacy?

I check a couple times a day to see if the next chapter is up, I'm so hooked. Go think up some characters of your own and write a novel, and tell us the title when its published!

Author's Response: I have a million ideas for original characters and plots, but there are so many crowding my brain right now I can hardly choose among them. I will definitely let you know, however, if I ever do. I\'d really like to do that. Someday perhaps. Thanks for your kind words!

Let me echo the previous reviewer. It is a great gift that you are willing to share your talent with us in this forum. I am as engrossed in this novel as I have been in any book in a long time. What a wonderfully rich story you are telling!

I think your writing is the best I've read on this site. The Alexandra Quick series is great. Please tell us you've got the third installment ready to go after AQATLB is done getting posted!

I have read all three of your AQ stories now, and HHD as well. You've created a great universe here, only tangentially connected to JKR's I might add, by that I mean it being mostly your own creation, for which I offer my kudos and thanks. I know you are working on an original fiction; if you manage to get it published, please leave us a clue on your LJ so we can find it!

I enjoyed AQATDR almost as much as the first two, and there is only one spot that makes me say that--the transition from the Lands Beyond to the Lands Below. The telling of that section felt a bit rushed, to the point of it seeming a little less believeable, even within the universe (and even given Alexandra's unusual talent) you've created. It felt like Alexandra is just rushing from one magical land that no one ever returns from to the other magical land no one ever returns from, which is old-hat for her 'cause she's been there before. I know from reading your LJ that plot is the element you care most about, and the events do hang together with the rest of the plot well, especially after reading the chapter in the Lands Below and the denouement chapters which were beautifully written. A little more care and a little more (dare I say it) style to your writing in this one section could have made the telling less rushed and flow better.

That's my only quibble. It was another fantastic story. I'm sad it will be awhile before AQATSA comes out, but I'm sure it will be worth the wait. In the meantime, best of success with your original work!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review, and the critique. You're right that her second journey into the Lands Below was much briefer (both in narrative and experiential time), and that probably did make it seem a bit rushed. I am always working on improving my style; I hope you'll see improvement in the next book.
