Poor Regulus...update soon, I hate to see him like that!

Author's Response: I've submitted, let's just hope and see.

 

Summary: Pre HBP, post OotP, no HBP spoilers. AU as of HBP

Troubled over the loss of his godfather, Sirius Black. Harry finds himself drowning in depression and fear; until he gets a visitor with a gift even Harry would never have imagined. A gift, which gives him hope, and faith in himself; a gift, that would bring Harry Potter, power beyond his imagining, and make Harry's sixth year his most eventful yet. And hopefully bring him the strength needed to win over his enemies, and fulfill the Prophecy in his favor…

This story is complete. Check out the sequel, Time of the Lost. ;)

Woo, you updated! How come that chapter had to wait so long to be validated? I'm really liking it. Wow, what's Harry going to do? Does he have to actually switch into Slytherin now? Can't wait for the next chapter.

Good chapter, it's really getting exciting! I like the idea of Grindelwald putting a curse on Tom, and part of that still being in Harry...really interesting. I have a couple ideas about where this might be going but I don't know if I'm right, I'll just have to wait and see. Update soon!

You know, I never trusted Luminous, from the very beginning... Great chapter.

I am really enjoying this story and it's on my favorites list. The ONE thing I'll suggest is that you be a little more careful with spelling and grammar. I noticed a number of misspelled words and also a lot of misuses of the semicolon. Stuff like that is easy to fix though, maybe just have someone proofread it. Good job and I'm looking forward to the next chapter!

This is a great story, I've been following it for some time. Harry's lack of remorse makes him seem a bit OOC (but then again, any "Evil Harry" is going to be OOC). I love it, update soon!

I've been a fan of this story for a while now and I really like it. It's very original and well-written. I especially like your attention to detail and your description of the characters' feelings; I could totally feel Harry's fear and desperation. Please update soon, Snape can't be dead!

 

A Grandmother's Tale by Magical Maeve
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 40]

Summary: Past Featured StoryA little character exploration. How did Neville's Gran take the news of her son's torture and what does she really think of her grandson?

Yes it's very sad, but very well-written. I never found Neville's granny to be a particularly appealing character but you make me really feel for her. Good job.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review, Hesperia! I also found her to be a very unappealing character in the story and I thought there was more to her than just a haughty old lady.

Interesting start. I like the account of Remus's werewolf bite; I wonder to what extent that guilt is going to affect Kat throughout her life. You should probably mention somewhere in your summary that this is AU, since JKR herself has said that Remus doesn't have a twin (that was a rumor she quashed). It would also be nice to know approximately when Kat is writing this--is she just out of Hogwarts, or an old woman reflecting on her life? The other thing that came to mind while reading the first part is that you might want to give some explanation as to why Kat and Remus's father fell for a Muggle woman rather than a witch. If he's a pureblood and a prominent member of the ministry, it would seem to me that he might be a bit conscious of his reputation, given common prejudices. Sorry this was so long, good job and keep writing!

I like it, but you make poor lil Tommy seem so evil! Was he really born evil, or was it the fact that his father abandoned him? Or maybe you're saying it was both?

Author's Response: I wasn't trying to make him seem evil. I was trying to show how like when babies are born they make gurgling noises and since he can speak to snakes he makes hissing noises when he is a baby.

 
Reviewer: Hesperia Signed
Date: 05/14/05 Title: None

Me again...Yeah I thought that might be what you meant, and it makes sense. I guess he still came across as being a bit evil though, maybe because of the title. I don't know, maybe you could do something to make the baby seem more innocent...though at the moment I'm not sure what. It's still good, I'm looking forward to the next chapter!

Author's Response: Whenever the next chapter does get accepted, I am trying to show how poor Tom was abused at the orphange which began his hate for muggles. But yeah I am trying to make him seem like he could've been a great good wizard if only he was accepted as a child.

 

Bellatrix by Kestrel
Rated: [Reviews - 23]

Summary: Bellatrix Black is at this moment pressing a cold, sharp knife against her wrist. Will someone come and change her mind? One-Shot.

Reviewer: Hesperia Signed
Date: 05/16/05 Title: Chapter 1: Angsty One-Shot

I like it! The part with her and McGonagall is really touching and the last line especially is really good. I think Bella's an interesting character; I wrote a fic about her too. The one thing this leaves me wondering of course is what WERE her problems? Also, given the content you probably want to raise the rating a little and include a SI warning.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I really think Bellatrix is interesting as a character; I hope J.K. adds a bit of background information. As for her problems, I think I might write a few more one-shots to give an idea. The content rating was PG-13 but somehow that got changed. Argh! I'll change it now. Thanks fore reviewing.

Aw, that made me tear up...especially that part at the end where he hugs Dumbledore...so sweet. Great chapter. I'm glad Harry lived (I never really thought you'd have him die) and I look forward to the rest of the story.

 
Reviewer: Hesperia Signed
Date: 10/05/06 Title: Chapter 32: Voices Beyond the Veil

Wow, excellent battle! Having Harry create a horcrux himself in order to get the piece of soul out was a great idea. I guess in a way, I don't like the thought of Harry using that curse...since it seems so inherently hateful...but you did a good job of showing that he did it out of love for his friends, so I think it works well. Is Draco still alive? I hope so--although from the description of his insides coming out I got the strong sense that he had died. I liked how you showed him and Draco kind of reconciling at the last moment. Anyway, great chapter.

Author's Response: Draco would have died if it weren\'t for Hermione\'s quick thinking, but more on that later. I think the Killing Curse is crucial in creating a Horcrux, so I had to have Harry go that way since I needed him to make a Horcrux.

I don't know how you update so fast but I love it! I'm so glad Ginny's all right. I really like your portrayal of her and Harry's relationship and what she means to him.

As far as my previous comment, I just meant that you had mentioned that they had been searching Hogwarts for a while, e.g. the common rooms, etc. It just seemed to me that Harry might have thought to look in the Room of Requirement earlier. But then again, I didn't think of it...I guess hindsight is 20/20. Good luck with your move and I look forward to the next chapter. ^_^

Author's Response: Thanks, yes, hindsight is 20/20 - and the RoR is on the 7th floor. If they started on the bottom and worked up...

Date: 11/04/06 Title: Chapter 36: The Power He Knows Not

This was definitely one of the best fanfics I have ever read. If the real book 7 turns out anything like this it'll be wonderful! Thank you for writing such an engaging story.

Author's Response: Oh, thanks much! I\'m glad you enjoyed it. I\'m eager to see if I called anything or not in the real book 7.

Date: 08/25/06 Title: Chapter 25: Treaty

I've been following this story for a while now and somehow never got around to actually reviewing--sorry about that. I just want to say that it's really excellent; the story is very well-written and imaginative, and I also appreciate the frequent updates (and the fact that the chapters are nice and long). I feel sad for Remus and Tonks, but at least Umbridge finally got what was coming to her. ^_^ And yes I got the ESB references (my all-time favorite movie). Looking forward to the next chapter!

Author's Response: Oh, thanks! I appreciate your taking the time to review and letting me know what you think. I\'m glad you\'re enjoying it.

 
Reviewer: Hesperia Signed
Date: 09/14/06 Title: Chapter 28: Scars

Wow, thanks for the quick update! I really enjoyed this chapter; you're so creative with the horcruxes. I knew it was the tiara (well, you gave us a huge hint in a previous chapter), but I had completely forgotten about the tiara in the Room of Requirement. That was a cool connection. The one question I have is why didn't Harry think to check for the horcrux in that room before? He knew there was a ton of old junk in it. Maybe it just slipped his mind? Anyway, great chapter, I'm looking forward to the next.

Author's Response: You just said yourself you had completely forgotten about the tiara in the Room of Requirement - so did Harry until all the pieces fit together. He didn\'t even realize the Horcrux was hitten at Hogwarts until they saw Goyle. It could have been anywhere, right?

Date: 09/29/06 Title: Chapter 31: Mortal Peril

This was an excellent chapter. I can't wait for the next one--you're great at creating suspense. The idea of Harry being locked away in that crate is just creepy...what an awful fate. Reminds me of Han getting frozen in carbonite and hung up on the wall in Jabba's palace. Poor Harry! Please update soon!

Author's Response: Thanks! Yeah, the buried alive idea certainly creeps me out, and I think it does a lot of people.

 
Reviewer: Hesperia Signed
Date: 09/02/06 Title: Chapter 26: Haven't I Been Here Before?

Another great chapter. I'm so happy every time this story is updated! ^_^ I've been eager for them to resume the Horcrux hunt so I can't wait to see what Dumbledore's portrait has to say and if they find anything at the Riddle House. Keep it up!

Author's Response: Aww, thanks! The action - and the talk with DD\'s portrait happen in the next chapter.
