I can't really image the canonSeverus acting that way...
Ah well. I love quirky ships like SS/HG, and I think you executed the pairing well. Very angsty and dark. I loved it.

 

The Sweetest Sin by annie

Over time, Hermione Granger has learned to suppress her pride and independence in households where she is considered lower than dirt. She thought she would be prepared for this new family, just like she was for all the previous ones. What she didn't know was that this new family was none other than Draco Malfoy's.

I love your story, it has a fabulous plot and VERY interesting characters! I love how Ariel always has to nip to the bathroom to smoke!

Just a few criticisms, though. I would watch out for clichés and phrases that would make a sentence sound cheesy. Also, using phrases that aren't exactly common, ex: "Nina Williams is far more beautiful than her." Using "far more beautiful" almost makes it sound like you were trying too hard . I would have believed it better if you'd written "way more beautiful", or something like that, because it's more commonly used.

I don't want to sound picky or anything, because I do love your story!! Just thought I'd give you a heads up.

What a powerful story! I don't think I'll ever see Bellatrix in the same way. I know it's not canon, but I can definitely see a messed-up relationship in her past.
I loved it. *hugs fic*

Author's Response: I\'m afraid nothing about my Bella is really canon, but it\'s the way I see her. Thanks for the review!

Summary: Redemption has always had a funny ring to it...

Being disowned by her parents after a rather revealing and emotionally burdening event, Noël Potter struggles to rise above her outcast status, find financial security by fighting in an Underground illegal league of brawling, and eventually find a way back into the good grace of her family.

Teaser from Chapter 10:


This wasn't going too well.

He grinned manically as he pulled his fist back once more to deliver the blow. My cheekbone snapped. He retracted his hand once more. In a split second, I felt as if he should actually kill me; to end this sad story called my life.


A/N: About the warnings - There is some strong violence in some chapters due to the Underground League.

Overall, this was a very good fic, but I can't help but wonder why wizards would have an underground fighting league when they could have a dueling league? I would find it much more believable if Noel was a dueler rather than a fighter.
Don't get me wrong, I like your writing style, and I enjoyed the fic, I just would enjoy it more if you included more magic.
~Sayla

Author's Response: Thanks for reading! Yeah, I tried to create a unique fighting league free from magic, but thanks for the review!

Wow. This was very good. I really like your way of describing things. You make them seem almost real. The only thing I can think of that would make your fic better is to be wary of making sentences too long and wordy. They kind of tire out the reader, and they get hard to understand. Otherwise, the fic was really enjoyable.
~Sayla

Author's Response: Thanks! Yeah, I do tend to get kind of wordy sometimes. My editor didn\'t technically read the whole thing. She said she skipped what she called the \"long, romanticized discriptions.\" I\'ll work on that in the future. Thanks again for reviewing!

Interesting fic...
I was actually really confused about this for a couple paragraphs. It took me a minute to figure out that "the woman" and "the man" were Alice and Frank Longbottom. I think you should have specified early on who you were talking about, and possibly referred to them as Alice and Frank, rather than just "them."
I had trouble distinguishing the "she" that meant Alice and the "she" that meant Bellatrix, too. I would have found it easier to read if the fic had been written from first person, rather than third.
Also, it gets a bit sloppy at the end. Don't rush through the exciting parts too much, or the readers get confused.
Overall, the fic was good, it just needs a bit of improvement here and there. I don't mean to sound harsh, and I don't want you to take this the wrong way. I liked the fic a lot. Keep writing.
~Sayla

Author's Response: i completely understand where you are coming from. I didn\'t want to use names in this fic because i wanted the readers to have to think about who this was all happening to. I wanted it to be a little confusing. But I know what your saying, and I will work on making it less confusing and rushed. :) thanks for the review and advice!

Summary: That night defined him.
For Harry Potter, the battle never ended. It haunts his dreams, it haunts his waking hours. Drowning his sorrows in the intoxicating warmth of firewhiskey, his engagement to a girl he thought he loved but no longer knows is falling apart.

I know, I know...I'm the most wondeful person you've ever met.
Hermione Granger's life wasn't going according to plan. The boy she thought she loved can't seem to catch onto the fact that they are more than simple friends; her best friend is lost to darkness and depression.

What do you do when life keeps throwing you curves? Follow two people who attempt to dance around them...and wind up in each other's embrace.

Moonlight Shadows by liveforthedream

Summary: Sometimes situations call for a things to be done because they are necessary– not right, or kind, or fair – but essential. When Hermione is caught up in this desperate battle where there are no rules or guarantees, it is in the most unlikely of places that she finds her strength and safety.

I can't begin to describe how much I enjoyed this fic! Your attention to detail is remarkable! It makes the story much more colorful and interesting, as I'm sure you know. You also captured Voldemort perfectly. I always found him to be a tricky character to understand, but you wrote him as well as J.K. Rowling herself.
I only have one nit-picky critique. Snape was already a part of the Order at the beginning of Book 5, so he wouldn't have needed to teach Harry Occlumency to get into the Order. That's the only flaw I could find.
I really loved your fic. I'm really interested to see what happens next!
~Sayla

Author's Response: ha, thanks for the review; I\'m glad you enjoyed. And as for Snape...well, he lied about not being in the Order. I should probably go back and make that clearer.... hope you keep reading.

Now that the two boys are in their seventh and final year, Seamus is finding it harder and harder to keep his secret from Dean. But what would Dean think?

Ooh, this was good. I never thought about Seamus as being gay. I suppose it makes sense, though. And liking Dean!! Scandalous.
You're a very good writer, too. You described Seamus's feelings without it sounding cheesy and awkward, which I always find hard to do from third person. I really like this fic, and I hope you put up more soon!

Author's Response: Haha. Neither did I and I still don\'t, but you have to admit, the chemistry is there! Thanks for reviewing!

Lovely poem!
I just have a bit of a critique. At the beginning of every line there should be a capital letter. For example, "promising to be there the rest of his life," should be "Promising to be there the rest of his life." Even when there's no period at the end of the first line, there should be a capital at the beginning of the second line.
This really is a beautiful poem. It's very sweet.
~Sayla

Author's Response: part of capitals is style...and I chose in this poem to keep going with the sentence, without capitalization. Thanks for the input though! It is much appreciated!!

"Greasy hair," Ron squeaked, then shrank back into the common room sofa when Hermione's glare was turned on him. For a seventeen year old girl, Hermione can glare like a champion. She'll make a great mother someday, let me tell you that.


Urgh. Mini-Snapes."

P.S. You wouldn't think of expanding on this at all? Like making a longer fic from Hermione's point of view or something? I would love that!

Author's Response: Aww, Thanks! ^_^ I can\'t see myself expanding it. I might in the future, but this is unlikely. Don\'t hold me to that, though. ;-) I\'m still playing around with different Genres (one-shot style) to see what I\'m best at.
