STORIES UPDATES:

Harry Potter and the Year of the Dragon~~ Chapter 14 is up!! I will try my hardest to get the next chapter up before the end of the week. As per reviewer request, expect a little love!

Hogwarts: The Next Generation~~ Chapter 10 is in queue. This plot bunny is the one that's currently hopping the highest.

Pride and Pumpkin Juice~~ Chapter 3 is up.

Revenge is a Dish Best Served to a Weasley...This story is complete and is the sequel to Truth Be Told. This story is up!

Just a quick note on Year of the Dragon: I am looking at wrapping this story up in a few more chapters (five or so). Then I will be doing a third part that will fit in nicely between Year of the Dragon and Hogwarts: The Next Generation, making this a four part series. I hope you'll all stick with me!

I'm back to review the rest of your story (all of it if time allows; I noticed that you have some pretty long chapters). Now for my review. I have to say that all in all this chapter is nicely done. Definitely more cheery than the last :) I still have hopes for a happy ending, I hate bad endings.

Author's Response: Thank you sooo much! Yeah, it get's a lot more cheery! Well, we'll have to wait a little longer until the end, but I'm really glad you like it!

Okay, that's it! I'm officially starting a login glitch hater's club!!!!!!! Membership is completely free!!!!!!!!!!!!!*********Okay, I'm better now. I feel really badly for Seamus, because no matter what, now that he's confessed his love for Ginny, he's going to wind up getting hurt in the end. And Bridget.....what more can I say about her that I haven't already? Where's a Dementor when you need one? I'd LOVE to see her get HER soul sucked out. Oh, what am I saying, she obviously doesn't HAVE a soul. I do have to congratulate you. Never has any author on this fanfic site created a character that I HATED so much. I DO hope that the next chapter has less Bridget. Great Job!!!

Author's Response: I'll join, becuase it only takes me 6 years to log in to even respond to these!! ARG! I feel bad for Seamus, too. But like I said about 12 times, this is when the plot starts thickening even more, especially in the next chapter! Don't worry, there is absolutely NO BRIDGET whatsoever in the next chapter. It's just two certain people, and, well, I'm not going to say anymore ;).

URRGGGHHHH!!! Leaving reviews is such a pain when I keep getting logged out!!!! Okay, I'm alright now. I sure hope Draco will leave Ginny alone, he's such a greasy little ferret :) I liked the interaction between Harry and Ginny in this chapter, and would be really mad about the cliffhanger, if the next chapters weren't already up ;)

Author's Response: I know how you feel, it always logs me out! It's such a pain! You'll have to see about Draco..hehe...Yeah, I got a lot of angry reviewers when I this chapter first got posted becaus of the cliff! I'm so glad you liked it!

Sorry but I have to begin this review with ARGHHHHHHHH!!!! Harry and Ginny didn't get their kiss, and now there's stupid air-headed Bridget to try and win Harry's affections! This was by far the most frustrating chapter, but it was really well written :) I hope Harry doesn't get serious with Bridget, she doesn't seem his type at ALL!

Author's Response: They will get their kiss eventually, I promis! It was frusterating, wasn't it? Bridget is a pain, too bad about her, huh? Thank you so much for the reviews, and I'm really glad you liked it!

I only have two things to say about this chapter. #1- POOR GINNY!!! and #2- (as one of your earlier reviewers said) DIE BRIDGET DIE!!!!!

Author's Response: Hehe...yes she will be getting what's coming to her soon enough. And believe me, it's going to be good!

Don't mind me, I'm just tying Bridget to a wall so I can throw knives at her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I swear she is the most annoying female character I've read in any of these fanfics. I HATE her with a passion. Okay, once again, I had to get that out of my system. I'm glad Ginny will at least have Seamus to hang out with, even if she doesn't like him like THAT.

Author's Response: Oh please do us all a favor and do it! She is annoying, and mean, two really bad combinations. At first I thought she might be a MarySue, but then I realized her major character flaw is her awful personality. Yeah, Ginny's going to go through a lot of mixed emotions between Seamus and Harry coming up in the next few chapters.

Could you just kill Bridget please? After all you are the writer. I missed her with all of the knives I threw in my last review! Your story is very good, but so ANNOYING!!!

Author's Response: I promise she's going to get what she deserves. Everybody hates her, including myself. During the next few chapters, though, you're probably going to see less of her.

 
Reviewer: CraftySlytherin Signed

Okay, this chapter was better because there was no BRIDGET!!! But Draco is really a bit of a -hit! I have also decided that I now feel as sorry for Seamus as I was for Ginny. You are SO good at angst!

Author's Response: Yeah, Draco is a pain in the you know where. But he is going to become a pretty integral part of the story. Thank you so much, I didn't think I was that good at it! I just put a lot of emotion into my characters!

Okay, I'm starting to get a little worried. I only have two more chapters to go and Harry and Ginny STILL aren't together! What's gonna happen when I run out of chapters???????????

Author's Response: Don't get worried--they will get together very shortly, that I can assure you of! I mean, it is a Harry/Ginny, so there's got to be some romance between them, hasn't there?

Okay, the Hermione and Ron scene in the broom closet was just TOO FUNNY!!!!! But, I'm very sad that there's only one more chapter so far :( I hope Ginny and Harry at least get a little kiss in it!

Author's Response: Hehe, yeah, I had to put it in there, the moment was perfect! Don't be too sad about only having one more chapter to go, I just submitted chapter 12 yesterday, and it's in queue, so hopefully it will be up soon for you to read!

 
Reviewer: CraftySlytherin Signed

Okay, I see that you have chapter 12 in queue, and I hope it gets accepted soon, or I'll go MAD!!!!!!!! They didn't get ANYWHERE!!!!!!! I expected at least a little kiss after 11 chapters!!!!!!!! Okay, I'm done ranting. This is a very well written story and you DEFINITELY have me wanting more! I will be not patiently awaiting validation of the next chapter!

Author's Response: They will have a kiss coming up soon! I really promise! I'm really glad you like it, and I'm glad it's got you wanting more! I can't wait until chapter 12 gets accepted, because 13 is when the real action starts!

 

Summary: Harry, Ron, Hermione, Ginny, a blond Weasley. It's Harry's sixth year. Voldemort is back, yet strangely quiet. A second prophecy. This is my version of what happens next. The whole book is written, along with all of year seven. I will post as fast as I can get the chapters past the moderators.

Story is now complete. Look for the sequel, I will be posting the first chapter tonight 6-2-05, and it usually takes 4-5 days for the mods to approve it. The title of the sequel is, Harry Potter and the Unlocked Mind.

Date: 06/06/05 Title: Chapter 13: The Animagi

This chapter is most certainly rife with creativity! I like the Animagi forms you have chosen for the four, though Harry will obviously find his form not quite as easy to hide as the others. But a dragon for Harry is very fitting. These four just seem to accumulate more and more powers as they go. BTW, I personally think there was something behind Lion Hermione forcing Ginny and Harry to hold hands, but if you still say brother and sister, I'll go along with it.......for now.

Author's Response: This chapter was originally intended as nothing but fun for the four main characters of the story to this point. I ended up using the animagi forms later in the story a few times, but I never intended to when I wrote this chapter. It really is amazing how things evolve when you write. I'm telling you brother/sister.

Another riveting chapter :) I really enjoyed the wedding ceremony (applause for Ashwinder for coming up with a splendid idea and letting you use it). I'm glad you brought Percy back, it disturbed me terribly to see the Weasley family have a member torn away in OotP. I hope there will be a reconciliation there in HBP. And I really hope Harry doesn't start having feelings for Bridgette. She doesn't seem a strong enough character to be with Harry. I'm still sticking with my earlier assumptions about Harry's eventual love :)

Author's Response: Yes, Thanks to Ashwinder. Those were some of the neatest ideas I have seen for a wizard wedding ceremony. I can't thank her enough for letting me borrow tehm. Percy just happened in this chapter. There I was writing it, with no intentions of him showing up and what do you know. The perfect place and time to bring him back into the fold. Bridgette is going to get more than she bargins for from a certain red haired witch very soon. Question is, how does she handle it?

 
Reviewer: CraftySlytherin Signed
Date: 06/06/05 Title: Chapter 15: Bridgette

I am so totally sucked into your story right now because I want to see what happens. Bridgette seems like a nice enough witch, and she certainly acts brave, but I still don't believe in my heart that she's the one for Harry. Maybe I'm wrong and she will miraculously become the right one for him in the next chapters, but I highly doubt my opinion will change. Maybe I've read too many stories by Harry/Ginny shippers, because before I found this fanfic site, I would have thought there was a small hint at something between Harry and Luna at the end of OotP. Guess you'll have it all worked out by the end of the story though!

Author's Response: I'm gald you are sucked in to the story, that is what an author wants. Bridgette's strength will grow as the story goes on. Does she keep Harry? Only time will tell. JKR has been droping hints about H/G since the first book. They are much more subtle than the R/HR hints we have been getting. Luna at the end of book five, there might have been a hint or two there. The hint that is big, in my opinion though, is Ron wanting Harry and Ginny together. That and Ginny "giving up on Harry" Ginny was either lying about Dean and is going to get close to Harry over the summer, or she is really into Dean, and we are going to have Harry kicking himself for missing his chance with Ginny. Those are my opinions.

Okay, this is my new favorite chapter! I, for one, am glad that Ron and Hermione are going to get married, the whole age issue asside. From what I've picked up from the books, love, especially really strong love, in your story and JKR's gives people even stronger protection. What better way for Ron and Hermione to show their love and strengthen their defenses? Really sporting of Harry to buy Hermione the dress (the dress shop scene was a riot). On one hand, I'm happy for Harry that he's getting some affection, on the other hand, even though I do like Bridgette, I still feel she's not right for him.

Author's Response: This is a fun chapter. Not a lot of difficult things to deal with, and you are one of many people who like the dress shop scene. I think this has happened to many people, or something very similar. It is good to see someone giving Harry a little attention, isn't it? By the way, I am really gald you like Bridgette. She is my one attempt to give life to a character of my own.

Date: 06/02/05 Title: Chapter 1: Letters

This is a very good beginning. It was interesting to see all the different pov. You have definately not made it easy to see who will end up together (of course, as an avid Ron/Hermione shipper, I will be quite disappointed if they don't). The chocolate frog cards was a good touch (think I read something about it on JKR's website). And I like how you've foreshadowed something mysterious about Ron (that's what I picked up from Dumbledore's thoughts anyway). The bit with Hermione got my head spinning a little, a little confusing but I'm sure it all works out in the end.

Author's Response: I won't comment on the pairings, I gave you a big hint in my e-mail asking you to review. Besides the chapters are up and you will know soon enough. Yes, a bit of foreshadowing with Ron. His roll expands in this book, and even more in my version of year seven. I really wish I could remember if I thought of the cards before I read it somewhere else or not, but I can't. What exactly made your head spin with Hermione? Was my writing unclear?

Date: 06/06/05 Title: Chapter 17: My Life for Yours

Once again you show your prowess for writing in this chapter. The ideas of the proximity detection spell and the Blood Oath ceremony were really creative and well written. I can't say I'm sorry to see things didn't work out with Bridgette and Harry, I'm glad it was amicable and they can still be friends.

Author's Response: A transition chapter that gives us a few answers to things from the past, and new toys to play with in the rest of the story to come. Having a nasty split between Harry and Bridgette was not an option. She has a few things left to do in the story, and she is never going to turn to the "dark" side.

Date: 06/02/05 Title: Chapter 2: Surprise Party

I liked this chapter better than the last. The Quidditch Game and the surprise party were great. I DO have one question....when you had Hermione Accio Harry and Ginny's wands, you said Ron caught them. In the next paragraph you had Ginny threatening the twins with her wand. At exactly what point did she get it back from Ron? You didn't say. Anyways, Fred and George are two of my favorite characters and I think you did a great job portraying them. I could totally see them running behind Harry and Ginny singing K-I-S-S-I-N-G, very funny. I loved the part with Ron faking not knowing answers just to get Hermione's help. I'll be glad for her to just decide one way or the other, I don't like her feeling that way about both of her best friends at once. Hope she picks Ron.

Author's Response: Glad you like it better, that means my writing improved, which is the goal of each chapter. Ron and Hermione were right next to each other when she summoned the wands. He just happened to grab them before she did as they flew through the air. I figure that Ron just gave their wands back when they got close enough. There is no way the twins would not take advantage of Ginny's little slip of the lips. Ron pretending not to know the answers, can't you just see that? It is tough seeing Hermione torn between Harry and Ron. That is why I did it, though I don't think that I really made it as difficult on the three of them as I should have.

What can I say that your other reviewers or myself haven't already? The Phoenix spell was terrific, well described and just an all around stroke of genius. The part with Dumbledore using the Killing Curse scared me there for a minute! I'm glad he had enough faith in Harry to know that even if he used it, Harry would be able to protect himself.

Author's Response: Thanks, this was a big deal for me. I wanted a solution to the death curse, and no one has told me that they don't buy what I did. That is really cool. Dumbledore using the killing curse scared Harry too. Who needs enemies with friends like that? Really it served more than just the purpose of testing the spell. It shows that Harry is not going to freeze the next time he is in the presence of the dark lord like he did at the end of book five. Ginny says it best.
"You fought this time. Last time Dumbledore had to save you."
