Summary: A weekend trip to the mysterious Rose Cottage leads to Ginny's second pregnancy and Hermione's first. The Potters and Weasleys take on “The Next Great Adventure” as they anticipate the births of Albus Potter and Rose Weasley.

Summary: Nominated for the 2008 Quicksilver Quill Award for Best Post-Hogwarts Story
When Albus, Rose, and Scorpius are put on the train to their first year at Hogwarts, their parents have simple hopes for them. Namely to have the normal, boring school years they never got to experience themselves. But sometimes, we ask too much of our children.
When the school becomes plagued by invasions of wild beasts, three different students from three different houses follow in the footsteps of the generation before them, but strive to achive the one thing none of their predesesors ever could: DON'T GET CAUGHT!
ooh bery goood! im so proud of myself, i figured out the scora thing before you saed it!
Author's Response: I was wonder how many people would figure that out. Show of hands!
Summary: Tzipporah Stein, a Jew living in Vienna, Austria on the eve of WWII, is shocked when she gets a letter telling her she is a witch. The volatile state of Europe as it waits for both a muggle and a wizarding war to begin has prompted Hogwarts to take in students from many countries. How will Tzipporah handle magic, mischief, and even a little romance while trying to be true to her religion and culture at the same time?
Wow, this story is really amazing. Usually I don't read the historical ones, opting more for post-Hogwarts, but you really know all of your history and stuff. This is ridiculously good. Thanks!
Summary: A potion has been created that has the ability to strip a wizard of their powers: a potion the Ministry of Magic couldn't wait to get their hands on. After the Battle of Hogwarts, lesser convicted Death Eaters are given a choice: go to Azkaban, or spend the rest of their lives as Muggles. While many people refused such a degrading option as a matter of pride, one Draco Malfoy chose the potion. Now, cast into the city of London, Draco both struggles with, and eventually enjoys his adaptation into the Muggle way of life.
But what happens when the effects of the potion turn out to be not-so permanent?
This is SUCH a cool idea! I can't wait for it to develop. :)
Author's Response: Well, don't you worry! There will be plenty more.
His fears? Flying...his own wand...fitting in...sticking out! His best friends? A passionate fire-breathing cousin, and a cool, aloof Death Eater's son. His destiny? Anything but ordinary!
Join Albus as he experiances his first year at Hogwarts and begins the journey out from under his father's collosal shadow, if he can survive it of course!
Meet the new Tenacious Trio, Albus Potter, Scorpius Malfoy, and Rose Weasley
Liam Donovan-mass creeper.
I had kind of forgotten he existed, but he's definitely a weird one.
Keep up the good work!
Liam is one of those who only makes themselves know if he has a reason, we may never know what they are. Glad you like it.
This is really good. I'd almost forgotten about it, until my email update came. Then I had to reread the entire thing, but still. Yay!
Glad you liked it enough to read the back log! Hope you keep going!
Summary: The final installment in the Potter’s Pentagon Trilogy. Read “The Five” and “The Truth” first, myess? Okay!
WARNING! Contains Muggle adventures in Diagon Alley, unusual eyebrows, cheesy clichés galore, psycho Ted, the not-so-lost years of Merlin, a school-wide singalong, the old potato joke, Tyrone’s Princess Bride obsession, Emma’s stubborn denial of the existence of Tyrone’s mustache, a graphic death, a joke shop product as a major plot device, hobo Jordan, Jordan hugging, Jordan pulling pranks, time travel, the Love Shack, angst, and worst of all, Professor Zabini.
It’s the sixth year for Potter’s Pentagon and company, and our heroes learn that in the wizarding world, coming of age has a somewhat weightier significance. Students are busy with an Inter-House Unity Project, Jordan is having weird dreams, Pansy and Ophidias Malfoy have been released from Azkaban, Professor Zabini has a mysterious project of his own, and almost everyone is acting strangely. Meanwhile, at the Ministry of Magic, a man with a vendetta against Ron Weasley is trying his hardest to get him in the biggest trouble possible. Is the only way to save him to travel into the past?
New talents are discovered, new friendships form and old ones change, pasts are dredged up, and, of course, there’s lots of good old-fashioned snogging. And one of the five kills for the first time… while another becomes a casualty of war.

Nominated for 2008 Quicksilver Quills Best Post-Hogwarts Story.
This is seriously going to be like the longest review from me ever. I'm super tired though, because I just got back from 8 hrs of marching band camp :( (I play sousaphone, which is the huge thing in the back, in case you didn't know) so I'm sorry if my spellings a bit wack.
Tyrone’s bizarrely expressive eyebrows tilted upward, giving him the sad look of a puppy that had just been called a bad dog. “Sorry,” he mumbled, withdrawing the offending appendage.
^^ Dude, bizzarrely expressive? That's awesome! And offending appendage. That's pretty sweet. I feel so bad for him :( Poor dog.
And like the sun popping out from behind a cloud, Tyrone’s wide, white grin reappeared in a heartbeat. “Gotcha,” he said. “Though I can’t promise I’ll always stick to that rule.” He paused. “Oh, and by the way? I’m winning this game.”
^^ Ahhhh!!! Ahhhhh!!! I soooo ship Emma/tyrone. Ahhh!!!!!! Good to see he's still flashin his pearly whites.
And he climbed on to the train after the other four, helping up a little first year who had been knocked over by two of Haley’s enormous suitcases.
^^ That is sooo Haley. And soooo Ted.
“Westward ho, then,” he replied, and the two of them marched off toward the Prefects carriage (which was actually to the east).
^^ WHere do you come up with this stuff??? Seriously.
Emma Weasley had gone cuckoo for cockroach clusters.
^^ O.M. Smurf. That's just all I have to say.
Tyrone stretched his neck to see his little sister over the crowd. Normally, being rather tall, he had no trouble doing this, but at the moment, he was sitting behind Ted, who cramped his style somewhat in this respect. “Hey!” he called, waving his arms and bouncing up and down enthusiastically.
^^ Oh poor Tyroonie. Too short to see over Ted's head. Hey, that rhymed!
Emma almost expected him to rip off his shirt to reveal the phrase ‘GO TABITHA!’ painted across his chest. Smirking at the image, she watched timid little Tabitha blush dark violet at the spectacle her brother was making.
^^Hhahaahahahahaha. Ha. Poor Tabby.
“What,” demanded Emma, “is your problem?” She eyed his pumpkin juice mustache with disapproval. She was good at eying mustaches with disapproval in general.
^^ Mustaches in general!!!!! Okay, I've been reading too much Giorgi. Sorry about all the exclamation points.....
The fire cast a warm, soft glow on her face, and gentle croaking of toads formed a comforting cadence.
^^ Comforting cadence! Love love love that alliteration. I'm always a sucker for good alliteration.
This was a change from the Ophidias that Icy had known and tried to put up with for so long,
^^FUNNY typo. Like, I'm not usually nitpicky, but that was very funny with the Icy.
So all in all, quite a brilliant chappie! Huzzah. Update soon!
Author's Response: Hey, thank you! You play the Sousaphone? That is ROCKIN AWESOME. My sister plays baritone... it's about as big as she is. She's ridiculously tiny. Now, what you have to realize is, both of my parents are musicians, so I definitely know my instruments. ^_^ I'm the black sheep of the family-- the only one who doesn't play any instruments, though I used to play the piano, the violin, and the trumpet. I sing, though, so I'm still pretty musical.
I love, love, love my Tyonr,e I have to say. I don't really know how I come up with a lot of this stuff... it just pops into my head, or else it's something I've said before and tucked away for later use. I personally really like the idea of Tyrone's little sister being shy, because he is, um, ANYTHING BUT.
squee-twitch-omg!!!! i was soooo excited when i saw it was updated and i smiled the entire time i was reading.! mustache-like eyebrows, toads are cool, eccentricity, giorgi, angst, ahhhhhhhhhh. sorry i'm a tad calmer now. so i was driving backe from wisconsin to ohio when i was looking at one of those signs on the highway and i freaked out because it said (drumroll please) E.J. "Giorgi" Smith Highway and I was like oh my gosh giorgi. mow for my theories.
so i think that ted is the one who is going to die and that jordan is the one who will kill. i think that jordan will kill the overseer or whoever that kills ted. and i will be sad and i will cry. i love your insanity aND keep updating quickly, because i reviewed and you want to keep me happy.
Author's Response: "Squee-twitch-omg" is the best reaction in the entire world to a new chapter! So glad you liked this. I'm a strange, strange little child. Whoa, someone in the actual world is named Giorgi? That's incredibly cool! I invented the name "Giorge" in sixth grade when someone else had the same real name as me (because the teacher called us Fred and George to keep us straight, and I made up a girly version). The entire class called me Giorge or Giorgi all year long, but when I went into middle school, everyone forgot and I was my boring real name again. As for your theory... you'll see... but not until Chapter Twenty-Seven.
I love my insanity, too! ^)^ It's an old friend of mine. And I plan on updating today, dude!
oh my smurf! that was wonderful and i can't wait for the next chapter. by the way, i've been meaning to say that i love the chapter titles. in which..... :) keep on plugging along.
Author's Response: "Oh My Smurf!" I need to start using that phrase. I'm working on Chapter Six as we speak. I have fun with the chapter titles-- they're inspired by Jules Verne and also the wonderful Terry Pratchett, who has some very inspired (and long) titles on the books "Going Postal" and "Making Money."
omgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomgomg teddy! TEDDY! i knew he was going to die but he cant die yet!!!! noooooooo (yes i know you said he just collapsed. and thaatw why im telling you he cant die) i had a fabulous review planned out and it just got eclipsed by that freakin cliffie!
Author's Response: If you get this worked up when Ted dies, it'll be interesting to see your reaction to Jordan's death later...
Summary: The summer before Rose Weasley's seventh year is not an enjoyable one. Trapped amidst a family she's sure would prefer the boy she's turned down to the one she's given her heart to, the only comfort she finds is in the memories of the last, beautiful week of term, and the knowledge that when the holidays are over, she'll be back in his arms - that is, if he hasn't changed his mind during the summer.
dude, i want a second chapter. this sooo good.
Author's Response: Thanks, glad you liked it. Sadly, that is the end of this story. I will write more R/S in the future, most likely companion shots to this fic, but no second chapter. Thank you for reviewing, though, glad you enjoyed it :)
Summary: The day after Voldemort is defeated the entire wizarding world celebrates. The streets are fully of cheering people. Everyone is exuberant, except one man sitting alone in a small dingy pub.
A songfic to Empty Chairs at Empty Tables from the musical Les Miserables.
I love this song so much.... Great songfic.
Summary: Sometimes, you just need a good wake up call to tell you that something is unhealthy. This is the story of how Louis manages to convince Lily that what she is doing isn't good for her.
The storyline is brilliant and well told, but (and I could be completely daft) aren't Louis and Lily cousins?
Author's Response: Yes, Louis and Lily are cousins - it is completely legal in the UK. I know it makes some people uncomfortable, though. Thanks for the review!
