Summary: Post Hogwarts: Ron and Harry are sent to America for Auror training. Ron spends his last night in England with Hermione, and after returning two years later, he finds Hermione with a fifteen-month-old baby ...
I've loved reading this fic. All the characters were so much themselves that it was like an extension of canon. I really didn't like Miranda at all, but then I thought if she grew up lonely then once she found somebody she wanted she'd fight tooth and nail for them. I'm guessing that her contemplative mood over the last few days of her stay with the Weasleys was her realising that Hermione and Ron did belong together and it's more lonely to be with someone who isn't happy than to be alone. All of the thoughts in between dialogue were very funny, weird how we never show our complete selves to anyone. I'd love it if there were a sequel, but if not, thanks anyway for this, I've had an evening very well spent.
Summary: It's Ginny's birthday and as she blows out her candles there's only thing she's wishing for...the next morning when she wakes up she finds her wish is now her reality...how will she handle it?
Fantastic! She literally made her dreams come true. I always wonder whether we know what to do all along to make things right and dreams, however strange they may get, are just sorting our thoughts out. I once read in a book that to solve a problem we need to look at things sideways and sideways meant asleep. I do think there are other sorts of dreams too though, like in the BFG. Anyway, brilliant fic, I once had a similar dream but sadly mine never came true.
Summary: Something’s happen for a reason...
Some just happen...
But this, this just happened, and now, our crib will be empty;
That must be one of the worst agonies someone can endure, I'm in floods just reading about it. You did a beautiful job with such a sensitive subject.
Summary: Its over ! The final battle has finished, although a lot of deaths were involved, none too close to Harry were hurt. Harry had won of course, but he seemed unusually happy at his final meal at Hogwarts. A Oneshot and a deathfic.
Wow, that would've been awful for everyone there to see, but Harry seemed genuinely happy and at peace, something he always sought. Wonder if any of us are happy and at peace?
Summary: Draco Malfoy has just finished his first year at Hogwarts. He must return home to face his father's anger at Slytherin losing the House Cup to Harry Potter. Draco also manages to get himself into a load of trouble when his family stops at a friend's house, and tries to keep a secret from his father about it. Naturally, he fails. ;)
NO! I HATE LUCIUS MALFOY! that poor demiguise, and it sounds like such a lovely pet too. This is a very depressing ficlet and you're making me feel so sorry for Draco, but not as sorry for him as i am for the demiguise and it's mother.
OK, now I no longer feel sorry for Draco, I hate him too. I know he's under a lot of pressure and I guess he's been brain washed for years, but why couldn't he just do what was right? I read a book called Break In by the author Dick Francis, there's a character called Bobby whose father tried to brainwash him into murdering someone, but he didn't do it, so for the sake of that poor demiguise I'm going to have Draco perform an unlocking charm and the creature will escape out the open window. There, i made it all better.
Summary: A one-shot about the night of Harry's birth. James's point-of-view. With poem by Edgar A. Guest.
This was brilliant! And I absolutely loved the poem.
Summary: A series of fluffy and completely romantic one shots about that particular romantic moment in 70s Hogwarts... *Completed as soon as part 4 is posted!*
Awe, that was beautiful. I love fluff.
I'm beaming, this was wonderful. Was the memory of their being married one of his dreams or something?
I wish i were Lily in this scene. Althoug i did think she has a cheek going through his bag like that.
Oh, I love Sirius right now. I'm not sure which of the four situations i like best so i'm going to pretend they all happened, in different potterverse realities, that ok with you? Oh and this is going on my favourites, you can't beat fluff.
Summary: After Draco's second year at Hogwarts, he is forced to spend the first half of his summer somewhere other than his home. Trying desperately to please his father, Draco ends up getting in even more trouble with his host, but will his greedy, power-hungry host dare to tell Lucius what magic they encounter?
(this story will make more sense if you've read my first story, Draco Malfoy: Summer of Year One, before this one. it is also under the dark/angsty category.)
Ooo, that cage of dreams sounds fascinating. it's a little like the mirror of erised, although the mirror only showed your deepest desire, not the outcomes of all possible dreams. Still, a weak willed person might waste their life looking into the box instead of actually living. This is also a very scarey chapter as Murdock seems very intent on possessing the cage of dreams one way or another. I'm also wondering if Murdock is hovering outside Draco's window on a broom all day under a demiguise cloak so he can catch Draco hiding the box and so find out where it is. You've also left a big question mark over the voice behind the cupboard door.
I'm quite surprised that Draco hid the cage of dreams again, but quite proud too. Can't help but wonder if Harry Potter had been the one to discover it, whether he would've put it back. Also, does it show what truly would've happened if for example Draco went home, or was that the worst possible result? If Draco had excellent mind control like Snape for instance, would he have been more capable of controling the power of the box and therefore seen a more accurate vision? Sorry, I just find this a fascinating magical object. I also thought the description Murdock gave of his wife's condition very upsetting, I almost felt sorry for him at one point, almost.
Oo, yet another chapter full of suspense. I have the strangest feeling that the roses Narcissa gave Draco are enchanted so that when he offers the second to Pansy they'll be betrothed. Also, it appears he's put both the Rose and and his unopened letter in his cloak, perhaps he'll mix the envelopes up and give Pansy his letter by mistake. I see i guessed right about Murdock watching Draco from the window. I'm now wondering what significance the ring Draco found has, was it that which gave him the ability to find the cage of dreams, is the ring enchanted somehow to make him more obediant towards Lucius wishes, he hasn't disobeyed him since putting it on desppite wanting to.
Hmm, I'm beginning to like certain characteristics you've built into Draco. He seemed a little Gryffindorish towards the end of this chapter, although maybe being brave doesn't necessarily mean you should be in Gryffindore. I mean, take Snape for instance, he was terrifically brave, but in a quiet inner strength sort of way as opposed to open heroism as is usually rue of Gryffindores. I'd love to know what the letter was all about, if this was during chamber of secrets then it might've referred to bullying people into getting Dumbledore sacked, but I'm intrigued as to what it refers to at this point. Sorry if i'm being particularly dense. I'm surprised Narcissa could remain conscious after three bottles of fire wiskey. I think my favourite scene in this chapter was Draco telling Lucius that if he was to hit anyone it shouldn't be Narcissa, very Hufflepuff of him, such loyalty.
Summary: "What can I say?" James shrugged his shoulders. "We are just obviously,"
James laughed, "Meant to be."
Lily Evans and James Potter share absolutely nothing in common, not even their feelings for each other. Lily, perceived as a ‘model student,’ detests the handsome, popular, Quidditch star James, who she thinks to be something of a git. James, on the contrary, has been infatuated with Lily for years, and has let her and the whole school know it.
As time progresses into Voldemort’s ‘reign of terror,’ the two have to learn to trust, tolerate, and love each other.
Please note, this story is incomplete, and will likely remain so for a long time. I apologize!
I'm extremely wound up from that chapter, my insides are writhing awfully. I loved the charmed parchment idea, such an original way to tell Lily she'd be working with James for the foreseable future. Came in very handy though didn't it? It's awful about Lily's parents, but she probably hadn't time to take it in. Just like the ministry to turn up late, you'd think they'd detect magic in an underage witch's house and send her a warning or something, quite useless aren't they>? No wonder Voldemort got as far as he did. It always amazes me why they never put a trace on the AK spell, it'd be easy to catch death eaters that way. Sorry, I'm rambling again, great fic.
I love the holiday package idea, it really is true, necessity is the mother of invention. I bet loads of fic writers only come up with such ideas because they need a new way to travel or a spell for this or that, excellent! I love new magical gadgets, spells, creatures, anything really so hope there are more to come. Anyway, other than that this chapter was quite somber, and Dumbledore's last conversation gave me a rather ominous feeling, Could he be talking about a series of prophecies, or am i barking up the wrong tree? lets find out
I really enjoy transitionhal chapters myself, gives you time for all the events in the action packed chapters to sink in. And despite your hating composing sorting hat songs, this one came out rather well.
Funny how when there aren't any drastic circumstances James and Lily donh't know how to communicate. Marlene seems a little overbearing, but thats always the case, quiet people pair up with loud people so as to balance one another out. It must be awful for Lily, I mean it's only been a few days and it mustn't feel real yet. Oh, and what do you mean you missed James' birthday, isn't it in March? Oh and i loved your disclaimer, very funny.
It amazes me that Marlene didn't realise Lily would feel awful going back home. And what was Dumbledore thinking? Couldn't he have just sent someone else? I guess it's because some people aren't as affected by things, they handle things in diefferent ways, take my three brothers and I as an example, we all react completely differently, I cry, one gets angry, one is easy going and the other goes through phases of all three. I'm glad Lily took the parchment, it may come in handy again. And I think James is finally growing up and the others haven't quite caught on yet.
