I just wanted to state how refreshing it is to read posted material with no typographical errors. I enjoy your stories. Please keep it up.
Author's Response: Thank you. It\'s great to hear from a new voice. At the present time, you\'re reading part 2 of a series. Part 3 is much longer. :-) I hope you continue to read, enjoy, and keep in touch. Dani
Hard as it is to consider this softer side of Snape, your story is great. I find I am drawn to return to see how the relationship progresses... Keep it up.
Author's Response: Glad to see you coming back. I firmly believe that everyone has a history that makes them the way they are. Snape didn\'t have one. I decided to create one...and then Book 7 came out...oh, well. At least my story is still plausible. Keep in touch. Dani
Summary: Chapter Ninety Six is posted!
This is the story of four boys. This is the story of a boy from a family he wants to escape from. This is the story of a boy who is from a family he loves deeply, but lacks the gift of a best friend. This is the story of a boy who has been living with a curse his entire life, fighting to overcome it. This is the story of a boy who wishes to show people what he can do. This is the story of how these four boys came to know each other, of how they became friends. This is the story of their unbreakable bond, of a bond that could survive any test, any trial. This is a story that will ultimately end in tragedy.

Summary: Vincent Crabbe has just died. How strange it is to watch the people he knew fighting a battle for something he didn't care about. And how utterly dull. But oh, such was death.
Random one-shot. Please enjoy!
Wow, that was very interesting. Thanks for posting this.
Author's Response: Thank you for reading and reviewing!
Summary: With McGonagall firmly entrenched as Hogwarts’ new headmistress, Harry is enticed to return for his seventh year under unique conditions. Aided by Ron and Hermione, he embarks upon a Horcrux search-and-destroy mission using the school as the base of operations. Recognizing that saving the wizarding world from the ultimate evil is a rather daunting task for a seventeen-year old wizard, the Order of the Phoenix steps in to assist Harry on his journey. It soon becomes clear, however, that not everyone has the same lesson plan in mind for our hero. As the headmistress attempts to lay a clever trap to reveal hidden agendas, Voldemort waits in ambush at the one site that Harry is sure to visit.
But before Harry can face his nemesis, he must face down the inner demons that plague his own life and truly grow into adulthood. His activities are punctuated with school pranks, Quidditch, parties, and the requisite amount of rule-breaking that readers have come to expect from the trio.
i LOVE YOUR WRITTING, i ALMOST CRIED A FEW CHAPTERS BK WHEN hARRY WAS HELPING lEAH WITH HER MEMORY OF HER GRANDMOTHER. kEEP UP THE GREAT WORK
Author's Response: Thanks! Hope you'll follow this story to the very end. I'm almost done writing the sequel which appears as The Dark Phoenix.
lOVE THIS STORY, i DONT WANT IT TO END.
Author's Response: Thatís truly the nicest compliment a writer can hear! Thank you, thank you, thank you.
CANT YOU WRITE A FEW MORE STORIES? i LOVE YOUR DIRECTIONS
Author's Response: So far, I have two other stories on this site. There is a prequel, Cruel Moon for the Misbegotten, which details Remusí activities from about the time of Siriusí death through the end of HPB. It fleshes out his immersion in the werewolf camps at Dumbledoreís orders. The tone is a bit more serious as heís a grown man dealing with some rather weighty issues. But underneath it all, heís still the slightly tarnished Marauder that weíve all come to love.
Thereís also a sequel, The Dark Phoenix, which takes place in the same alternate reality as Heroís Lament. Iím still in the process of posting it, but the end is quite near. I tried to keep the same lighthearted tone as in the previous story although some of my original characters that reappear are from the prequel as well. Donít let the rather dark opening chapter (prologue) put you off, though, as it begins in the same place where the other story ended and Harry is still grieving.
You can link to these stories from my author page so I hope youíll check them out. I have some other quirky ideas going around in my head, so Iím sure there will be more in the near future.
that was a fast battle
Author's Response: Sorry about that. Writing play by play battle scenes is not my strong suit, so I just paraphrased as Harry and Voldemort did their obligatory parry and thrust leading up to the Priori Incantatem. With Harry ignoring most of the diatribe spewing from Voldemortís lips during this part, I imaged him lulling his opponent before puting the last part of his plan into play. Obviously, if this scene were filmed it would play out differently with multi-colored spells ricocheting back and forth as the other reinforcements also battled the Death Eaters in the background.
Author's Response: Glad you liked how they trumped old Scrimgeour as well.
awesome... made me cry
Cheers to you.
Author's Response: So pleased to hear my words moved you. Whether to tears or laughter, thatís the writerís ultimate goal: to never leave the reader unaffected. Hope youíll move on to read some of my other stories. Donít be a stranger.
Summary: Front page: THE DAILY PROPHET 4 May 1998
TOM RIDDLE ‚Ä“ THE SELF-STYLED LORD VOLDEMORT
Editors Note: At the request of the Ministry for Magic this Official Statement issued by the Office of the Minister is produced full and unedited.
OFFICIAL MINISTRY STATEMENT
This official statement has been compiled with the assistance and co-operation of Mr Harry Potter.
‚ÄúLord Voldemort‚ÄĚ was, in fact a man named Tom M. Riddle, son of a witch, Merope Gaunt and a Muggle, Tom Riddle Senior. The Ministry has decided that in all future official publications Riddle will be referred to by his given name.
There has already been much speculation and wild rumour regarding the events at Hogwarts School. The Ministry can confirm that Tom M. Riddle was killed at dawn on the morning of Saturday, 2 May. Riddle was disarmed by Harry Potter while in the act of firing a killing curse at Mr Potter. The curse killed Riddle rather than its intended target.
Continued on page 4
WHERE IS HARRY POTTER?
Despite the Official Ministry Statement (published above) we are no closer to receiving an answer to the question on the lips of every witch and wizard in the country. Where is Harry Potter?
It appears that Mr Potter left Hogwarts School early yesterday morning, apparently in the company of his close associates Hermione Granger and Ronald Weasley. An attractive young Ministry clerk, who did not wish to be named, told The Prophet ‚ÄúHe‚Äôs at the Ministry, having an important meeting with the Minister. My friends and I saw him. He asked us out to the pub, but we had to turn him down.‚ÄĚ This statement is at odds with a report from the Portkey Office that Mr Potter has fled the country, travelling to Australia with his companions.
Continued on page 2The days after the battle were days of grief and mourning. Grave Days.
