I loved this, it was GREAT! And as much as I loath Draco, I'm glad to see he repented at the end.

Petunia Dursley is enjoying dinner with her family when someone starts pounding on the door. Ready to tell them off for being so rude and refusing to leave when they didn't answer at first, Petunia opens the door to have a baby shoved into her arms and told she is his only family. Years after the great Harry Potter defeated Voldemort, Death Eaters have risen to power and taken over Hogsmeade, Hogwarts, and even the Ministry of Magic.

*Quote from The Epilogue*

Suddenly Harry was kissing her as if he couldn’t resist the temptation. There was a kind of frenzy to the kiss at first, a kind of desperate need, but it melted into something soft and sweet and gentle, a promise of a future when kisses would never be limited. When they broke apart he rested his forehead on hers, sprinkling a few affectionate butterfly kisses across her face. “I love you,” he murmured.

YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT THIS IS ONE OF THE BEST CHAPTERS YOU'VE WRITTEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! IT IS PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!! (I know, too many exclaimation points, but this one deserved it) More, more, please!

Author's Response: You can never have too many exclamation points in a review! :) Thanks very much; I\'m glad you liked it!

Is there any way you could post the next chapter (or the whole thing for that matter) on another HP fan fiction web site? Seems to me they are REALLY taking their time here and its just infuriating!!

Author's Response: It has been quite a while. . . . I\'ll look into finding another site. Right now the other sites I write for are centered on couples that this story doesn\'t cover, like Lily/James sites.

Bless you! What a fantastic Thanksgiving present! I have been checking the site daily to see if this latest chapter had been released. And yes, please,please, please try to get to the next ones soon.

Author's Response: Well you\'re welcome! Thanks in return for the review!

Reviewer: lyssa0128 Signed
Date: 02/15/09 Title: Chapter 19: The Essence of Time

I read where you told another reviewer that part of the problem getting the chapters out sooner is that the mods find the chapter confusing and want you to rewrite. Maybe I misunderstood this, but if this is true, doesn't that mean the mods have a bit too much influence on what you are writing? I mean, this is a FANTASTIC story that I have been following since the beginning and the wait between chapters is agonizing. I love what YOU write, not how someone else may be telling you to.

Author's Response: The mods don't often ask me to rewrite, but sometimes they want me to try and make thinks clearer -- this is only the second time it's ever happened before (one chapter of "The Pursuit" was once a little bit too confusing). Honestly, it's just like having another beta, an editor who's trying to help. They aren't really changing the story. I'm glad you love the story and have kept up with it from the beginning -- it makes my day to read that! :) Thanks for the review.

OK, it is now confirmed. YOU ARE AWESOME!!!!!! This is a FANTASTIC (No, that word is NOT strong enough, but it's the best my mind can come up with at the moment) chapter! More, more, please!

Author's Response: I\'m awesome, eh? Sounds good to me! I\'m glad you liked this chapter; it was one of my favorite to write so far.

Date: 11/19/07 Title: Chapter 13: The Words You Never Want To Hear

I am absolutely in AWE of the story so far and do not understand what is taking so long for the approval of the next chapter. It's like waiting for the book 7 to come out!

Author's Response: Haha, it should be posted soon!

Reviewer: lyssa0128 Signed
Date: 05/28/08 Title: Chapter 1: The Man and The Baby

OK, I'm dying here. I NEED the next chapter!!!!!!!!! Please? Pretty please? Real soon? Really, really soon? Oh, and did I say please?

Reviewer: lyssa0128 Signed
Date: 11/05/08 Title: Chapter 17: The Reason For Everything

What's going on? I got an e-mail from Mugglenet saying that chapter 18 was up, but it's not. This is not the first time the mods have done that with this story and it's REALLY frustrating!

Author's Response: It is very frustrating, I know! I just got an e-mail today telling me it had been accepted too. Hopefully it won't be long before it is actually updated. Sit tight!

Reviewer: lyssa0128 Signed
Date: 02/19/08 Title: Chapter 14: The Start of the End

OK, this has simply gone on long enough! What are the authenticators doing, rewriting the chapter or WHAT!!! This is not some fluff story and they have either got to get it validated or the whole story needs to go to another site, like "". I have found a lot of authors from "Mugglenet" putting their stories on both sites. It's a thought.

Author's Response: I have stories for other fanfictions on, and with the queue down for an unknown amount of time, I\'m considering posting my Harry Potter WIPs over there. It\'s a more daunting task than one would imagine, however; but if I do decide to do it, I\'ll let you know!


Of Christmas Past by Chaser921
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 542]

Summary: Harry, Ron, Hermione and Ginny find themselves in a Muggle hotel in Godric's Hollow on the Winter Solstice. During an enthusiastic snowball fight, Harry and Ginny step through a stone circle that transports them seventeen years into the past. This may be the only chance Harry has to spend with his parents, and it may also be what he needs to figure out his relationship with Ginny.

The warning is for later chapters.

Edit: So, this was originally strictly a Harry/Ginny fic, but Ron and Hermione kept trying to get together too, so I felt like I had to change the category. And there's a bit of Lily/James in there too, though they're already married, and I've also added a bit of Remus/Tonks. Poor Sirius is the only Singleton (though he may manage to get a girl of his own)!

Edit: This story was cannon until after Deathly Hallows came out, so I changed it to Alternate Universe, but it's still pretty close to cannon. Only a few things will end up being different when the story ends.

Edit: I've changed all of the chapter titles to the titles of Christmas songs that I felt reflected the events in the chapters best. Tell me what you think! Does it fit?

What a beautiful story! And it was truly in keeping with the seventh book.

The Letter by Cassandras Cross
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 439]

Summary: Past Featured StoryDH SPOILERS! Harry is so consumed with his career as an Auror that he loses touch with Ginny and their children until a letter arrives to help him remember what really matters. But is something sinister waiting out there to take it all away? An escape from Azkaban, the first in twenty years, stirs up Harry's worst fears from the past as those he loves are threatened.

Romance, mystery, and drama combine to make this a story you won't soon forget! Set one year before DH epilogue. Completely canon compliant. All reviews receive responses.

THE EPILOGUE IS UP! I don't know whether to laugh or cry as this story comes to an end, and Harry finally figures out where it's really at. (Thanks again to the amazing mods for your rapid-fire response!)

I re-read the entire story and I have to tell you that you truly have a gift for writing. And from a technical standpoint, it's really great to see someone who actually proofreads their material and checks it for composition, spelling, etc.

Author's Response: Wow! You actually RE-read it? That\'s really flattering. Thanks so much. I really appreciate your comments. Next chapter should be up soon.

Alright, someone has to put a fire under the site folks to get your chapters out as soon as possible. Each one is better than the last, and as someone who read the 7th book all the way through the day it came out, this waiting is agony!!!

Author's Response: Oh, dear! They\'re going to ban me from posting any more fics on this site after all the pressure I\'ve created for the poor mods. I\'m glad you\'re enjoying the story anyway. Thanks for sticking with it and thanks for your review.

Well, I'm not at all surprised that I loved the ending. I mean, each chapter was better than the last. And you truly did fill in that gap from the book exceptionally well. Keep writing! And once again, GREAT JOB!!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for your faithful reviews and all your lovely comments. They are very much appreciated. I hope I will hear from you again once my Christmas story is posted, which should be sometime in the next couple of weeks. Take care!
