Summary: Severus Snape has just killed Dumbledore and is thus considered the most loyal servant of You-Know-Who. But his new position as headmaster of Hogwarts leaves him with more challenges than he ever anticipated.

This is a story about the painful reality of Hogwarts under Voldemort's control. Whilst Harry, Ron and Hermione have disappeared to find Horcruxes, life at Hogwarts must somehow go on ...
keep them coming!
Author's Response: Next one should be up soon - thanks for the support!
I feel really bad for Snape!
As for the previous review, I meant it would be cool for Nicole to find out whenever, before the battle of hogwarts, during, afterwards, anything!
Author's Response: She'll find out at some point, don't worry. She's intelligent enough to work it out for herself.
AWESOME chapter! What a genius idea having Nicole impersonate Alecto. I also liked the fact that there was a blood-charm (whatever its called) on the vault like the one in the cave in HBP. Was this vault the same one which has the cup?!
And what a cliffhanger! Nicole better act up or Lucius will smell something fishy1
OMG, I can't wait to find out what happens next! Nicole is gonna be in a LOT of trouble.
Author's Response: Hee, I'm glad you're still enjoying it. Yes, she is, more than she ever realised!
Memories flooding back!
Awesome chapter! I loved the dialogue interspersed with the chess!
Author's Response: Hee! Glad you enjoyed it. I'm cracking on with writing this now so updates should be coming pretty regularly.

Summary: Rich, beautiful, and effective-- three words that describe Miss Zabini perfectly.
Or at least, that's what she'd tell you!
In her defence, she has planned hundreds of parties and dinners professionally, and they've all gone off without a hitch.
That is, until she had to plan that fateful Ministry dinner!
Wow! Every second of reading this was pure pleasure! Your writing style is incredible!
Author's Response: Every second reading? I didn't even think people would bother to read it through once... Thanks so much! No one's described my writing style as incredible before... Thanks for the review and thanks for the praise!
Summary: Luna is always one for being the center of attention, and her classmates are always ones for finding ways for making her such. And when Luna waltzes into Potions class one day with a live duck tucked under her arm, Professor Snape can't help but ask for the reasoning behind it.

A really enjoyable read!
Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it! Good old Monty Python!
Summary: Cedric Diggory didn't just die in the graveyard of Little Hangleton: he saved Harry Potter's life, and it was just the beginning of his journey.
Awesome poem! I had a feeling it was going to be Mrs Zabini! I've always felt she would have made an interesting characters, what with all the husbands she's done in!
Author's Response: Ahh, I love Mrs Zabini too (or rather Mrs Flint as she is in one of my fics - currently on husband no. eight). Thank you for reviewing and I'm pleased you enjoyed it. ~Carole~

Summary: Harper Riley is one of the most gifted young witches of her generation. However, since the traumatic events of the Battle of Hogwarts, she has not spoken a single word. Her Muggle parents were killed, along with her two wizarding brothers, and she is on the run from her squib guardian, a sinful and harsh man with a strong hatred of magic.
Harry Potter is recently married and settled, however, his life seems to take on another dramatic turn when he and Ginny find Harper. Her refusal to speak makes things a lot harder for them to discover how to help her. Luckily, Harry knows someone who owes him a favour. Someone who he and Ginny may not like, but they trust. Someone whose profession is to help those who suffer from the Battle of Hogwarts, no matter their story…
If anyone can get her talking again, it’s Blaise.
"I don't want to forget that night...but I don't want to remember it either."
A Blaise Zabini/Original Character romance
This story has the characters: Blaise Zabini, Harper Riley, Jimmy Peakes, Harry Potter, Ginny Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Weasley, Isabella Zabini, Draco Malfoy, Dennis Creevey, Leonard Wilkes, Theodore Nott and Minerva McGonagall plus many more.
Aww, it's gonna end that soon?! Only 3? Lol.
Hey, thanks for not killing her! I was really tense throughout the first half!
But Wilkes is still at large...
Something funny. I was reading another fic before this chapter and that has an evil Blaise in it, lol,
Author's Response: Evil Blaise???? Fraid he's gonna stay good in this one ;-)
I'm dying for an update to either this or MFF! It's been so many days and no e-mail notification telling me one of my favourite stories has been updated!
By the way, how long do you intend this to be? MTT had to be of a certain length since everything had to fit in with canon. You have a little more creative license here so you can make this story go on till they're well past hundred with Blaise being Hogwart's new Headmaster and Harper the Minister of Magic! Lol, me and my crazy ideas!
Author's Response: Hi! I'm a bit late in updating cos I turned seventeen this week. Plus university applications are weighing me down. Anyhoo, both chapters for both stories are in the queue and the 2nd Epilogue is almost done. FHV will have twenty-one chapters, hopefully, and there is a surprising ring of truth somewhere in your prediction! :D
Hey, I was re-reading this chapter (because of Keedie, of course) and I was wondering why Horace didn't say something to her when she came into the portrait. It looked odd, him not saying anything all that time she was talking to Blaise.
Author's Response: I can't remember mentioning it, but when I was writing that, I just assumed that he'd wondered off somewhere to get drinks, etc. He won't have seen it. :D
Who is it??? Draco Malfoy??? I'm going to find out in a few seconds anyways, but I had to review, didn't I?!
Okay. About this chapter. I absolutely LOVED the sarcasm in this chapter. Considering I employ it so often myself, I'm a huge fan; that's one of the reasons I enjoyed reading Keedie so much and probably why I'm going to enjoy reading about Harper.
'Can you “literally” not read?'
I was laughing at this point!
Haha! Bilbo Baggins from the Hobbit! That's how I'm picturing Bilbo now!
By the way, just like you did with Riddle (and that was no small task), you've made Blaise somewhat likeable. Good job!
Oh, and the references to My Troubled Tyrant will stop soon, don't worry about it. It'll take a couple of chapters as I'm still in MTT mode. But Finding Her Voice is a very good fic in its own right.
Author's Response: I am a huge supporter of sarcasm. And I don't mind MTT references at all! :)
