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
Author's Response: Thanks!
Wow, that was very interesting. Thanks for posting this.
Author's Response: Thank you for reading and reviewing!
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.
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.

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.
Loved the retelling of the story. This is great
Author's Response: Thank you, it was a much edited version, but really I can't se harry telling anyone (other than Ginny) everything. -N-
I love the things you come up with for Luna. that last line was awesome!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Luna needed to have the last word. -N-
Thanks for creating a story that fills in the blanks. You have a great skill at using the emotions created by JKR
Author's Response: Thanks fo the review. This entire story started from the idea of the reunion in this chapter. -N-
Better and better. I want to cry at least one time per chapter. I am greatful you posted this perception of what happens after... Thanks
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Expect more tears. -N-
You are brilliant!!! This was awesome, Arthur has long been one of my fav ha just does not get much attention. You provide a very interesting perspective.
Thanks for posting.
Author's Response: Thanks. I'm a big fan of Arthur. In my mind (and on the monster of a spreadsheet I use as a timeline for my stories) this story takes place the day after the events of Spontaneity. -N-
You are the best. Another person who is not givet the attention they deserve in the written series.
Author's Response: Thank you. If there is one person in the series who deserves a lot more love, it is Neville Longbottom. -N-
Wow, you are great. First, I loved the joke witth Luna and the glass. That is perfect. Second, I love the way you paint a picture with your words. I am going to read all of your stories, I suspect they are each wonderful in their own right. Keep it up, and thank you for sharing.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review and thanks for the compliments. I'm glad that you liked Coli's "Luna" joke. I hope that you enjoy my other stuff, too. -N-
YOU ROCK. I love how you fill in blanks and address questions not covered in the books. Keep up the great work.
Author's Response: Thank you. -N-
You are a freak... just kidding. This was great, I have enoyed everything you have written (that I have read) thus far. Hope you continue to provide interesting takes on the future of the potterverse
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. This was an interesting story to write. Slightly smutty and (hopefully) very Ron! -N-
