Summary: Another short continuation of The Long Wait and 3rd in the series. - Severus and Hermione deal with CROK. Will they learn their lessons? Doubtful.
This was so funny! I love this series, it's so far from canon but they're all still so in character. Fantastic!
Author's Response: Thank you. I\'m very happy you enjoy the series. I\'ve never actually written very close to canon, but have always tried to keep my characters personalities somewhat similar. My belief has always been, if someone wants canon, they can go back and read the books. After all, fanfiction is to get away from canon. I don\'t care what anybody says, no fanfiction is canon, because only the author can do that. \r\n\r\nI stopped posting here a long time ago.

Summary: "Even when I was little, I was slow. I started walking months later than I was supposed to, and I spent the first three years of my life babbling nonsense that no one but I could understand. It was a well known fact - Gregory Goyle was stupid. " Goyle has always known he was stupid - until someone told him there was a different name for it. Written for the Special Needs, Special Love Project @ Project Aparecium. Not a shippy fic.
A wonderful piece, very emotional, well done.
“That arrogant…arrogant…ARG! That toerag is Head Boy! HEAD BOY! How did he make HEAD BOY! What is Dumbledore on? I mean, he struts around, pranking, pranking, PRANKING, and then Dumbledore says, ‘Gee, this kid really is an irresponsible bad influence, prankster, and all around jerk. Yes! He’d make a fine Head Boy!’”
I've absolutely loved reading this, and i'm so upset it's over. I've laughed, cried and rolled my eyes countless times along with the characters. You've both made this such a joy to experience and I can't wait for the sequels.
If it's true that the Potters will live in your series of fics, then i love you. I love marauder era fics, and although we obviously don't know that much about James and Lily from the books, I think they're two of my favourite characters. There's just so much potential there. Can't wait to read on.
Summary: It had been purely by accident that he had even stumbled upon her refuge. A small courtyard — was that what this would be called? — surrounded by great fir trees. He didn’t know precisely where on the grounds of Hogwarts that they were, but he didn’t really care, because he wasn’t thinking of such things. He was thinking of her.

I really did enjoy reading this, I laughed quite a bit at some places, but at others I felt much like crying. I'm going to have to think about this fic for a while to decide what I think actually happened, or didn't happen as the case may be. I think you're a brilliant author, you've written a piece that appeals to every reader, you've left the truth open to interpretation and each person can take something different from it. I'm going to add this and you to my favourites.

I thought this was great, glad you changed the actors, wouldn't want to upset anyone. I love behind the scenes stuff, theres a new drama on tv at present, half an hour is a behind the scenes similar to this and the next half is the drama, it's all fake, but so interesting. I notice you've not updated, I'd like to read more if you have the time.
Summary: Starts out in James and Lily's 7th year at Hogwarts. Not exactly your average James/Lily
A hilarious start, and making them stay like that until full moon, ingenious!
I love this chapter, it seems the mistake has made them closer without realising it. That spell to empty the bladder would be really useful to know, and the one for changing clothes would save loads of time. I like how Lily stopped James punching Snape, so he could show her he would've defended her. Can't wait to click on NEXT
A bit of an abrupt end to the chapter. I got a bit sad when they were watching their possible muggle lives. Wonder what my life would've been if I'd gone to Hogwarts? James and Lily seem to get on a little better now, possibley when the switching is reversed they'll stay that way, hopefully they worn't revert back to arguing. keep writing.
Peter is horrid! Maybe he isn't the most popular of people, but none of the others would see harm come to him. What a ...!!! That Christmas morning was lovely, that's how i felt when reading it. I'm glad James and Lily are finally together. Since Peter hexed Lily, maybe the Potters won't use his as secret keeper and won't get killed after all. Hope so. I love what if.
I hope Dumbledore's got a plan for hiring Bellatrix, what a huge mistake! Looks like James and Lily's deaths might still happen, although as we learned from the hall of prophecy, the future isn't set. And bringing a Dementor into a school, what was she thinking?!
I'm really sad that this story has come to an end, and that James and Lily will still end up being killed. Some of the exam mistakes were really funny, and James' prank on Snape, a muggle prank, probably more effective than any spell. Hope you write more stuff, this was great!
All Harry's life he had been watched. Watched by the memories of his parents. When 7th Year comes Lily and James and Sirius watch Harry as he struggles to defeat Voldemort once and for all. Pre-HBP
Haven't reviewed for a few chapters so in summary, Grindelwald! great idea, and i know it's probably spelt wrong, Narcissa Malfoy is a sap, poor poor Luna and How stupid is Hermione to go out alone near the forest where she knows the death eaters have been hiding out? Also, could Dumbledore not evict the death eaters? or at least put protective enchantments around the borders of the forest to prevent students being taken?
The ending was good except i'm not sure what Lily meant by saying Harry wasn't dead anymore. Did they all come back to life? Did harry join them in the spirit world?
I love seeing Ron and Hermione bicker, it's so funny, sometimes i think they enjoy it. Sometimes this fic seems to be from the humour catagory, but then comments like Lily and James' about the dark depressing afterlife bring it back down. You're such a clever writer, bringing out so many emotions.
I know Harry performed an unforgiveable so technically he's maimed his soul. But just think, Dumbledore said Pettigrew owed Harry for sparing his life, what if this was his debt, what if he was practice to help Harry when he needs to destroy Voldemort? I know i make no sense, I'm just trying to make Harry less of a murderer. Is it murder if it's justified?
I love Dumbledores unfailing ability to find the loophole in every situation, you can't kill a dead man, brilliant! Using the killing curse is something i never thought Harry capable of, however, does nobody else realise that this is war? Not that I'm a fan or anything, but if anyone deserves it it's Pettigrew.
You see, this is what you get for not sticking in at occlumency lessons. How else would they know he liked Ginny if not by spying on his thoughts? Can't spirits send messages to the living, couldn't the marauders, I'm including Lily, spy on the death eaters from beyond and report back to Dumbledore? In fact, why can't the hogwarts ghosts spy? They're capable of becoming invisible. And how did the death eaters get to Ginny in the Gryffindore tower? Dumbledore needs to further up security. Sorry, I just hate things being less than perfect. I'm a happily ever after seeker, so sue me.
It's really hard to imagine Voldemort running after Harry. I'm glad Bellatrix is out of the picture, that's one person I'd not like to meet in a dark alley. I like that they levitated Ginny's wand just out of reach as though taunting her. Are the James and Lily from the wand just echos or are they the same James and Lily watching over Harry?
How awful, but Dumbledore himself said that they must keep fighting to hold evil at bay, so why now is he holding them back? I'm glad Cedrick was there fore Cho, not that this gives peace, James and Lily are together with their friends and aren't at rest, not yet anyway.
