Summary: Past Featured StoryThis tale of the teacher whom everyone loathes,
Accounts for his anger and elegant clothes.
It dripped through my mind when, too scantily cloaked,
I got caught in a rainstorm and throughly soaked.

Very nicely done. You put alot of thought into your work.
The dress Snape made for Lily sounds beautiful, although she never really had the chance to fully apreciate it, until her passing.
A wonderful story!

I just finished reading your story. It is excellent, very intrigueing.
I feel sorry for Ceci, she is trying so hard to be friends with Snape, but he's just not buying it.
I also like the little poems that you have at the end of each chapter. They set the tone for each chapter.
They would look good at the beginng of each chapter, in my opinion.
I look forward to the next chapter.


Summary: Hermione learns of a difficult task she must complete with the help of a man who seems to hate her, her Potions Master. This is a golden opportunity for her to show her true feelings. But will she be able to pull it off without succumbing to her feelings? And how will her Potions Master react when he finds out just what she thinks of him?

Hi Katy! Just wanted to tell you how much I've enjoyed reading the first chapter of My Beloved Potions Master.
It sounds like it'll be a wonderful story. I wish you luck in getting your chapters validated. It must be a daunting thing to have a story up and ready, and then you have to wait. Have patience and hang in there!
BTW, I am a huge SS/HG ship fan, I think these fan fics are awesome!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I\'m so glad you like this story. It is hard waiting for the validation, but it\'s worth it. I love seeing my work on here. :) And, yes, I, too, am a HUGE fan of the SS/HG ship. :)


Out of the Ashes by Stormy
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 28]


“I won’t pretend I know how you’re feeling Harry – not this time. Too long I have ignored the simple fact that I make mistakes, and I cannot understand every emotion a fellow human can feel. I know that you feel anger, and resentment towards me. If there is nothing else you believe, know only that there are people who love you, and trust you.”

It is two weeks after the final battle and Harry is struggling to come to terms with what has take place. It takes someone special to draw a new life out of the ashes, but what is there to live for when so much has been lost?
(Set at the end of book 7)

Please Read and Review - my first fic!

Hi Stormy! I'm a long time mugglenet fanfic reader, but I've been away from the site for awhile and I decided to check it out and came upon your stories.
I'll read your longer fics, but I just wanted to say that I really liked this one. Harry is sad about losing his friends, but att least he's got Dumbledor by his side. And Harry is okay with his headmaster's 'forgiveness' speech.
A great short story, and I'm sure your other fics will be as well! Good luck!

Oh this is such a cute story! And I think it's such a nice idea for your college classmates to call their professors by their first names. That's a nice ceremony and I don't know of any colleges here in the US, (don't know if you're in US or another part of the world), that have that ceremony.
Anyway, Hermione seems to be at odds about calling her proffessors by their first names.

Great story!

That is too cute, Jennifer, the story about you and your professor. At least he did'nt bite your head off like Snape did with Hermione.
Great story and I'll be looking forwasrd to the next chapter!


Take My Heart Away by Hatusu
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 959]

Summary: Past Featured Story Hermione goes back in time with one mission: to kill Tom Riddle before he ever comes to power. A difficult task, correct? An impossible one, she realizes, as a love between them grows stronger than anything she has ever known. Now Hermione has a choice to make. Will she condemn the Wizarding world to almost certain destruction, or will she take the life of the one boy she has ever loved?

Hi, I just finished reading your story, 'Take My Heart Away', and I just want to tell you how much I enjoyed it. I've read two Tom Riddle stories before this one, the others were 'My Troubled Tyrant', by Belledeg, And 'Saving His Soul' by Mandy, over on
Yours is just wonderful, like Belledeg's tale. I'm now a big Tom Riddle fanfiction nut, and I hope there are more stories out there.
I knew Hermione would go back in time to be with Tom, because in a way, they are alot alike, academically.
He could have been a decent human being, if he only had love and compassion shown to him. He's only heartless and evil, because he grew up without the love of parents who would have adored him...His mother at least.
I felt bad for the boy, because of that.
But I'm rambling now! Thanks again for a great story!!
I apologize for not reading it sooner! Good luck with your next story! ;0)


A Matter of Malevolence by trinsan
Rated: Professors [Reviews - 30]

Summary: Sometimes, perspective is everything.

From day one at Hogwarts, Severus Snape had problems, half of his own making, half not; how one interprets those problems depends entirely on one's point of view.

At least with Severus, one principle is always consistent: he gives just as good as he gets.

Brilliant story! I enjoyed reading about Snape's first day at Hogwarts. He sounds like a handful too, as Malfoy found out.
Quite headstrong, Severus is. Very billigerent.
It is well written and I'm sure I'll enjoy reading the rest of it.

Yup, that little Snape is a bad little boy! He sounds like a total terror.
I liked James' point of view. He could see what a bad kid Snape was.
Now, I like Snape, as the Hogwarts professor, but this little 'brat' is just one you'd love to hate!
Love the story! it's awesome!

OKay, this is interesting...Snape trying to figure out a puzzle, and in his cunning way, he'll do it before the other questers find out the clue.
A very interesting story.

Reviewer: moonstargazer Signed

Well, that was an interesting stunt that James and Sirius pulled on Snape.
It's amazing that he was'nt burnt to death in the hot potion.
Luckily, he survived. And this thing with the Questers has Snape in a tizzy.
Remus seems to regret his friends' antics. He will be a prefect in the future.
He's a decent kid. Now if he can reign in James and Sirius....
Great story! I am enjoying it immensely.

This is an intriguing story. Whatever is going on here is very strange, and Severus is right in the middle of it.
I look forward to reading the next chapter.

Echoes in the Ice Cold Night by Stormy
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 8]

Summary: Written for the Winter Snows Challenge one – ‘Redemption’.

31st December, 1981

He was alone; the glittering silver of the frosted grounds eerily silent in the darkness. Somewhere, beyond the walls of the castle, someone else was alone with nothing but the shadows of the past and memories of unimaginable horrors echoing for eternity.

If only Hallowe'en had never happened...

A one-shot tale of trust, betrayal and learning to trust again. Please R/R!

I hope you did well in the challenge! I really enjoyed your story. Severus is a hard nut to crack I'll admit, but if you 'hit' him just right, he'll play nice. He's guilt ridden and will be until the end. He'll never forget Lily, and it pains him to know that she is gone. But her son lives on...Great fic!

I'm just beginning to read this story. I must have missed it each time it was updated.
It sure looks like an interesting and exciting tale. I never knew that Harry's scar could break open and bleed. Must have been extreme pressure, from whatever Voldemort was doing at the time. Sounds like it was some kind of spell. It sounds like a seizure to me.
Hopefully, they find out what caused it to happen.

Reviewer: moonstargazer Signed

Gee, I could sure use some of that potion that Harry's taking, lol
Great story and I'm glad Harry's doing okay. Now they have to find out what triggered that seizure.

Reviewer: moonstargazer Signed
Date: 04/28/08 Title: Chapter 3: Changes

Well, that did'nt go over too well....Like any patient just coming out of the hospital, Harry should have had some rest, before attempting the lessons with Snape, but I guess Snape wanted to test Harry's mettle, in spite of his weakened state. Just like Snape to be a sadistic old bat!

Reviewer: moonstargazer Signed
Date: 04/28/08 Title: Chapter 4: Getting Informed

That was interesting... Kind of a 'slow' chapter, not much going on, except Harry's venture into the Penseive, to attend the Order meeting. All seemed concerned for Harry's safety.
Great story
