I'm orginally from New Jersey,USA and currently live in Northeastern Pennsylvania. I'm 47yrs old, born on December 23rd.
I enjoy writing and art. I enjoy volunteering and walking.
I've been a fan of the Harry Potter series and the movies for the past 7 years.
Summary: What if Harry and Draco were really friends behind all the insults and fights with each other? When would it have started and where would it end? Major spoilers for books 3,4,5,6. HPDM, FGL, BZSF, OWOC, poss RWHG, rating may go up
I have'nt posted any reviews since I think the begiing of this story...It is very good, fast moving in spots, a bit slow in others, but over all, I like it.
Seems funny to see Harry and Malfoy as friends...and more.
Summary: Harry is due to begin his sixth year at Hogwarts, which will undoubtedly be his hardest yet. A newcomer breathes new life into the fight against Voldemort, and complicates Harry's life even further.
Sorry about moving it to general fics.
Sounds like a good story to me. Should be very interesting to see what transpires between Harry and Valora.
Author's Response: Thanks for your review. At the moment, Harry and Valora have a kindof childlike friendship. I\'ve been thinking a lot about how I\'m going to have their relationship mature.
Okay, It sounds like Valora is related somehow to the Wasleys. Nice story though. Abit slow in spots, not too bad. It does sound interesting...Does Valora know that Mrs. Figg is a Squib?
I'm sure she may know, otherwise, she would'nt be staying there.
Author's Response: Valora is Mrs Weasley\'s niece. I have a tendency to pay a little too much attention to some details, which in turn makes the story slow. Valora isn\'t entirely sure how Mrs Figg fits in, but she knows that she has some connection to the magical world. Professor Dumbledore planted Valora at Mrs Figg\'s to keep an eye on Harry and report how he was doing. Thank you for your review.
Summary: “The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches…”
Harry Potter’s destiny was decided for him before he was even born. Among all the witches and wizards in the world, only he has the power to destroy the feared Lord Voldemort. Now seventeen, and an adult in the magical world, Harry along with his best friends Ron and Hermione prepares to set out on the long and dangerous mission to destroy Voldemort and the Horcruxes that make his soul immortal. As Harry has learnt, the key to destroying Voldemort lies not in the future but in the past, but as the trio dig deeper into the secrets of the dark wizard’s history, an unexpected ally will reveal something that makes the challenge seem more impossible than they could ever have imagined…
Note: I've rated this story 6th-7th Years because of some stuff that will happen later on, but most of the story will be suitable for all ages. If in doubt, check for any warnings.
NIce story, and chapter! And I'm happy that Harry's aunt finally talked to him as his aunt, and not some overbearing prat.
Hermione's right, Harry does get away with murder sometimes.
Summary: With the death of Albus Dumbledore came the passing of the most powerful symbol against the Dark Lord Voldemort. Now the Death Eaters are more active than ever, the Wizarding World is in mourning, the Order of the Phoenix has to regroup, and Harry Potter has to follow the path set before him. But Harry will get more help than he bargained for, will have more responsibilities than expected, and will find a spell that nobody knows how to work.
I really like this story! Congratulations on your first fanfic..It takes alot of courage to put a fan fic out here on the internet.
I'm glad the Dursleys were civil to Harry and his friends. At least they got good meals.
Well, sounds like everyone will have a nice time at the wedding. Ginny seems disappointed that she can't go with Harry and the others.
She seems sadden, that she can't go, but it is for the best.
Great story by the way.
Summary: Dumbledore is gone, or is he? Harry feels the weight of the world rests on his shoulders, but he is soon to learn that his brooding nature and desire to face his fate alone may be his greatest weakness. It is his emotions, or rather his capacity for emotion that makes him strong, and his relationships his greatest source of strength.
When the summer begins and he faces a fortnight with the Dursleys everything he knows, or rather thinks he knows comes into question. Can he... should he do this all alone? And is he anywhere near ready?
Hogwarts is to be re-opened, the Ministry officially endorsing it as the safest possible place to be. As his birthday approaches there are monumental surprises in store for Harry. Who is he really? And what about his family, who came before his mother and father? Why is the Potter name so famous, and yet so unknown?
Encouraged not to run off to face his fate he returns to Hogwarts for his final year, but surprises abound at the school as well.
Can Harry become the wizard he needs to be to face the Dark Lord? Will he let the people he respects and love really help him? And what of help from unexpected sources; sources he might never trust?
Wow, that was a strong chapter. You do not want to disappoint Voldemort. Apparantly, he takes no pity on a young teenager...Poor Draco...
And The Dark LOrd puts an x on his face, so he's scarred for life.
A sad and heartbreaking chapter, Voldemort is a mean cruel bastard and deserves to die.
Author's Response: Yes... the man (and I use the word \"man\" lightly) is not just heartless, but according to JKR, quite literally soulless... (or, at least nearly soulless) Hmm... we should ask Nick if being nearly soulless, is anything like being nearly headless... Anyway, I really wanted to get at what sort of a cruel guy Tom Riddle really is, what he is capable of. He was really sort of glossed over in the books. We were told he was terrible, but never really shown anything very bad. So, I wanted to start off with a bit of characterization to show just what Harry is going to have to deal with.\r\n
\r\nI hope you are enjoying the story, and I hope I will see more reviews from you concerning further chapters. \r\n
\r\nThank you so much for reading, and more so for leaving a review.
Summary: St Mungo’s is a very busy place. And mistakes do happen. Try explaining that to Severus and Hermione.
Oh that was too cute for words!! I was lol at the last part, Snape fainting? How funny is that?
Great story! Congratulations.
Summary: This is an alternate version of Book Seven. Harry reluctantly returns to Hogwarts to train with a new DADA teacher, one appointed in specifically for Harry in Dumbledore's will. As the rest of the Wizard World reacts to Dumbledore's defeat, Harry develops the skills he needs to fulfill the Prophecy--including mastery of the Kedavra curse.
Mysteries are explored along the way, particularly the "missing 24 hours" from 1981--the span of time between Hagrid taking Baby Harry from the ruins of Godric's Hollow on Halloween Night, and his arrival to hand off Baby Harry on Privet Drive the following night. The Veil Room in the Department of Mysteries is also revisited. A traitor is uncovered, and Dumbledore's wisdom comes into question. And even when all goes as planned, things are not all they seem.
I really enjoyed reading the first chapter of this story and it sounds wonderful.
I'm surprized that Petunia did'nt ask Harry what he said when he answered her question. So Harry can do legilmancy. Cool.
I'm glad Tonks got through to his aunt and uncle about feeding Harry properly. And Harry, not being shy about speaking up to his aunt and uncle.
Nice that Hermione gave Harry a cell phone...So who's footing the bill on that puppy, eh? By 'puppy' I meant the cell phone. I suppose for the sake of the story, it's a freebie. Gotta laugh at Harry for not knowing how to use a cell phone.
Good thing she did'nt give him an iPhone! He'd REALLY be confused, lol
This is a great story and I'm looking forward to reading the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thanks! Well, I imagine Petunia would deliberately NOT want to know more about Legilimency, since it is one of those awful wizard things. As for the cell--hmm, I guess Hermione must be paying for it. This was in 1997, though, when they were still pretty big and clunky and only acted as telephones...
Wow, Quite a flashy end to the Dursley's home. I'm sure Vernon will be fit to be tied when they return from their vacation. Lucky for Harry, they got him out of there before it all went to heck in a handbasket!
The Phoenix sounds like Fawks, coming to Harry's rescue. I often wondered what happened to Fawkes after Dumbledor's funeral. It's fitting that this bird chose to come and protect Harry, along with his other guards.
Great story! I look forward to reading more!
Author's Response: Yeah, Vernon's in for a nervous breakdown, I'm afraid. I always thought Fawkes was an important character. He cheats death on a regular basis, right--dies and is born again from his ashes. Gee, sound like something Tom Riddle would want to do? So he's going to play a big role in this story.
Well, I had to search for this story, since I've been having computer problems..Mostly the mouse, but I'm back...Alot of info here in this chapter. Harry reaches Grmmauld Place naked, at least he got a blanket to wrap around him. Lupin had alot of info that kind of made my brain go foggy at times...Must be the cappacino I'm drinking! lol
But I have to comment on Northport, where the Spooky Witch comes from...Northport is a small town in Upper MIchigan, on Lake Michigan. I and my parents went there to visit relatives a few years' back, and it's really a quaint little town, don't know how it is now, (When I visited it was 1982)
I'm looking forward to reading more of this tale. I like it alot and I'll have to bookmark it.
Author's Response: And Dan Radcliffe hadn't even done Equus yet when I wrote this chapter! Funny about Northport--I'm originally from Michigan too, though I'm not a Yoopie. Though we did go visiting there sometimes--mostly Tahquamanon Falls (sometimes I wonder if the Toonerville Trolley still runs). Anyway, I made up the name Northport so the Alaskan Wizards could call it Northpole and get the whole Santa thing tied in... but maybe some part of my brain remembered the name from road signs on those Trips Up North...
Summary: For once in her life, Hermione is faced with a problem she does not know how to solve...
This will be fun to watch. Hermione's Revenge on Snape. Can't see where the Russian minister of magic fits in here....So, I wonderif Hermione left the Gryffindor common room while sleepwalking...Probably, she just made it to where she was found.
Fudge is an idiot, in my opinion, not believing that Voldemort is back...But that's another story, huh?
This is a great one, and I'm thoroughly enjoying it!
Author's Response: thank you! and yes, fudge is most definitely a dumbass lol
Well, I suppose Hermione will never fall aasleep in Snape's classroom again...yikes! And her temper! I would feel the same way myself.
A wonderful strory!
Author's Response: thank you!
Oooohhh! This is beginning to be some trip! Wonderful story overall, I was lol at Snape's antics!
But It seemed to backfire on Hermione.
We'll see what happens.....
Author's Response: haha :D
Boy, Hermione sure seems to be accident-prone, does'nt she? lol
A great tale, full of intrigue and suspense!
And a bit of mystery too! ;0)
Author's Response: thank you! so glad that you are enjoying it!
Ooooo!! This one looks great! Snape being a total jerk, and Hermione having a crush on him. Of course he's being such a jerk to her that I'm surprized that she has'nt thrown something in anger at him.
I can't understand why Snape treats her the way he does, in class, when she's such a gifted student.
Perhaps because she'a gryffindor...
GReat story, I look forward to reading more!
Author's Response: yay! so glad you\'re enjoying it! hope you like the rest :D
Still a great chapter, Kind of slow, I think. Snape is still a grouch and Hermione perserveres, with his nasty comments.
I've seen Snape nasty before, but he is really a jerk in this story! lol
We'll see what happens in the next chapter.
Author's Response: well i try to keep him mean and in character xD hope you enjoy the rest. thanks for reading!!
Okay, How could Hermione work with a teacher, who hates her so much...She must have nerves of steel to work in Snape's dungeons, and to put up with his insults.
Great story, it'll be interesting to see how this all pans out.
Author's Response: glad to hear it :D
Snape's one touhg cookie, I'll say...A bastard of course! But he has his moments...Blink and you will miss them.
Great story, and Hermione has her work cut out for her...
Author's Response: haha, thanks for reading!
A change in scenery is good for anybody, even the reclusive Severus Snape. His dreams sound kind of weird, creepy...He being a little boy and seeing Hermione is his family's library, or was it his own library at Hogwarts..I shoulsd pay attention, when I read, dang it! *shakes head in dismay*.
I like this story alot, since I'm kind of like a sleepwalker too, or I used to be...lol
And the dreams you have as you sleepwalk! Really weird...Especially, if you're calling for your parents nad both of them have passed on...Like mine have.
Anyway, I'm enjoying this tale, and I'll check out the next chapter...
