OK, just follow the links (copy and paste into the web address bar) :D The last two are Story info.
Any Questions? ;)
Summary: The battle is fought, the war is won--but no victory ever comes cheap. Join Alice, Andromeda, Ginny, Narcissa, Luna, Molly, and Hermione as they discover the cost of war.
EDIT: I'm back! And I am SO SORRY I was gone so long. There is absolutely no excuse for making you wait almost three years for an update. *hides from angry reviewers* The next chapter is in the queue!
Well written, and thought out.
Obviously fluffier than Alice. Also well written. I think that this story was a clever idea. Andromeda's going to be interesting.
Author's Response: Thank you for the review. All the lovely reviews have encouraged me to keep writing, even as Andromeda and Molly have taken over my life. I hope I meet your expectations with the next chapter!
Summary: What happens when Luna challenges her friends to a game of Truth or Dare?
Brilliant! Write more. *cracks up*.
Author's Response: I\'m having so much fun writing this, and I\'m really enjoying all the kind notes everyone leaves for me! I just submitted chapter 4, so look for it soon!
Author's Response: I love that kind of response! Thanks for leaving a note, I\'m always happy to know I\'m making someone laugh!
Brilliant! I'd like to hear a couple more truths...
Author's Response: That\'s an excellent suggestion, and I\'m going to take you up on it! It means a lot to me that you all take the time to give me feedback on the story. Thanks so much!
"Only Ron could fume and pout and blush at the same time."
*collapses in hysterics and gets some very strange looks from family* I
Author's Response: I love hearing when I make someone laugh! Thanks for the note!
I kept going into fits of hysterical laughter when I was reading this :D. You're great at charcterisation.
Author's Response: That\'s really kind of you! I love hearing when I\'ve made someone laugh. I appreciate it!
Summary: It began as an innocent activity, and ended alone on a dark and stormy Halloween night.
At least, it was Halloween.
But British muggles do have trick or treat
Summary: A giantess and a wizard...just how did it happen?
The story of how love began between Hagrid Sr. and the giantess Fridwulfa.
Author's Response: LOL, thanks!
Summary: You've heard of my brother, right? Stupid question, of course you've heard of my brother. The wonderfully famous, famously wonderful Albus Dumbledore. The bright one of the family. He got the brains my sister got the looks, and I got... drumroll here... I got the job of feeding the goats. Yeah, I know, I felt like that too. Bit of a bummer isn't it?
But, for once, this is my chance to tell my story, so shove off, and let me do my own thing. Ta.
Note: Mental disorders is just my little sister's condition, so don't let that put you off reading it. If it does, read it anyway. Tough.
This is a response to your response, so sorry if it's annoying for it to be here but..
yeah, I think it's cool the way people can swap languages, like (on a good da) I can think in germish, which is my own special version of German, involving quite a few English words with "lich" stuck on the end. Also, when I had an exchange student she said that by the end of the week she was dreaming in English. I know that all this is really random, but it just occurred to me, and I wanted to tell you the thoughts that your story inspired lol. Maybe I think like Aberforth - think a thing, have ask/report it.
Author's Response: This is very interesting, thank you for telling me.\r\n\r\nAlso, I like the word germish. At my school we are taught spanglish and franglais. I thought I was the only person who mixed names of languages together! I hope you don\'t mind me using the word germish from now on?
Very good. I'm adding this to my favourites. Why did Aberforth want to know if Albus dreamt in mermish?
Author's Response: It was a thought that occured to Aberforth randomly, if people who know foreign languages dream in them. Incidentally, my Spanish teacher says she can dream in Spanish or Italian.\r\n\r\nThanks for reading!
Summary: They shared a secret past and meet again in Gretna Green for a wedding.
Normally AU fics confuse me, but I like this one. Write more.
Summary: “But I don’t understand. Ginny told me that you and Hermione broke up by mutual agreement,” Luna said, confused.
“We did. And it’s not that I want to be with her again - it’s just...hard to explain.”
“Unless you’re with someone who is actually listening.”
When one love is lost, another is found.
Very clever. I normally find it hard to read Ron/Other Character fics, but I think that this is well written and I like it. I'm adding it to my favourites.
Summary: Albus Dumbledore really did see socks when he looked into the Mirror of Erised. And this is the reason why.
Wow! You write really well, and I always wished that JKR hadn't made Dumbledore lie to Harry that time.
Summary: After being hooked up with a job teaching at Hogwarts by her little sister, Muggle Chastity Fagman is the first Muggle Muggle Studies teacher Hogwarts has ever seen. But after the Headmaster slips about her strictly non-magical status, all of her students know that she can't do anything magical. What will happen in her first class?
This story contains some language not suitable for younger readers and crude humor. Maybe.
awwww, bless her. Was she a squib maybe? Really, what did the headmaster expect?
Author's Response: Actually, here\'s how her family works. Her mum and dad split, or something, and her mum got remarried when she was somewhere around seven. They had a kid (Megan), and she was a witch (because her dad was a wizard). And I dunno what the Headmaster was thinking, but it sure wasn\'t anything smart. :)
Summary: Lily Evans thinks Valentine's Day is bad enough without propositions from mysterious strangers, fuchsia coloured hair ribbons and the irritating smirk on James Potter's face.
But it just gets even worse when she finds out who's been sending her the presents...
This is the Final Exam written for Humour & Writing: Earning Respect by Pondering of Ravenclaw.
I really like this story, it has a good mixture of humour and real feelings. What on earth was the Lucius one about? In my opinion that was definitely the weirdest letter she got. I have one question: James and Sirius were very close, so would Sirius really send a Valentines letter to the girl that James was obsessed with? Other than that, I loved it, and at some point when people aren't throwing me off the computer I would like to read more of your work.
Author's Response: In my earlier plans Lucius had a bigger role, he was actually offering her a job in the letter. But somehow it didn\'t seem too believeable and I cut it out, leaving Lucius\'s letter in mostly for the creep factor. \r\n\r\nJames and Sirius were being jerks and they sent their letters together. Remus does not know this because he was in the Hospital Wing--he and Peter sending Lily letters as well was a coincidence, so he wasn\'t exactly lying. \r\n\r\nI hope I\'ve answered your questions to some extent and I\'m glad you enjoyed it. :D\r\n\r\n--Tash
What is a story without a scandal?
Underneath every burn hole on the tapestry of the Black family tree, there is a story, and underneath every story, there is a scandal.
In 1924, the Blacks were the most powerful family of the Wizarding World. They were greedy, back-stabbing, malicious, and power-hungry. And Cedrella was no exception. She was her father's favourite daughter; the pride of the Blacks, and it has earned her a conceited nature like no other.
But during her seventh year at Hogwarts, her life begins to become a little more clear, her family a little more conniving. She is arranged to wed the infamous Abraxus Malfoy and has people watching her every move to make sure she follows through. It makes it even more difficult when Septimus Weasley, a blood traitor and fellow classmate, starts to convince her, that for once in her life, she could have what she wanted.
A scandal forms between the two; a forbidden love between Black and Weasley behind the walls of Hogwarts. If they are found out, their lives will be ruined. But even under the opposition, what a Black wants...
a Black gets.
That was lovely. I saw the banner for this story on the beta boards, and have been wanting to read it for ages. Good writing, and update soon.
Summary: Harry and Ginny's relationship in Sixth year from the perspective of Dean Thomas.
I loved that! I was in search of happy H/G fluff... but I'm so glad I found that :D Good writing. Nitpick: There was a "their" that should've been "they're"
Author's Response: Yes....I seem to be getting lots of comments about my "there's, their's, they're." My only excuse is that it is very hard to edit your own stories because your brain automatically reads it the way it's supposed to be. Thanks very much for the review.
What happens when you find out your whole life has been a lie? How do you react when the people you trusted, believed in confess to hiding a secret that changes everything you believed about yourself?
Hermione Granger is about to face that situation.
The war is over and life should be simple. She should be planning her future with the man she has loved since she was 11. But now, she doesn’t know who she really is. As she struggles with the grief of lost friends, she also deals with the grief of the loss of everything she believed about herself. Can she open her heart enough to let Ron help her deal with this, or will this secret drive them apart?
I like this story, you have captured the characters of the trio very well and come up with a very original idea. I would love to read more of this :).
Author's Response: Thank you for your review. I will be submitting the next chapter as soon as I get it back from my betas. I will of course update my signature on the boards when the next ch[pater is up. Thanks again, Terri
Summary: Hermione Granger made a career out of protecting house-elves. At forty-eight, she had moved on to bigger and better things. But when asked to take leave from work, Hermione is certain this can only mean failure.
So when Ron brings home the story of Honey the house-elf, Hermione makes a decision that could alter the course of her career - and ultimately her life.
Not only does Hermione have to convince the entire Wizengamot of Honey's innocence, she must also prove it to her family. And they have become those least likely to believe her.
‘Honey,’ I said. ‘That’s an unusual name for a house-elf.’
Ron cleared his throat loudly. ‘It’s also unusual for a house-elf to commit a murder.’
Epilogue now up!
That was very interesting indeed, and I am looking forward to the prologue. I think that the verdict was the right one, not because it was what Honey deserved, but because I was expecting her to be let off, and a story should always be unexpected. I am so glad there is a prologue because I have loved this story. It was full of twists and turns and was never predictable. Also, it was highly original and showed signs that you are a highly inventive person who is able to take what you have been given and twist it into something new. The nice thing about this story is that no one else but you could ever write it. There are some areas of fan fiction that are just the same stories told over and over again, and although, for example, I love Remus/Tonks stories they are all basically the same because we know so much of the story. You, on the other hand, have used HP as a spring board rather than a framework to create something new and unique. Overall, very well done and I loved it. I am sure I spotted a typo, but I just can't remember what it was, lol.
Author's Response: Thanks so much for your lovely review! I'm really glad you enjoyed it. Hopefully I'll have the epilogue up soon. ~ Cassie
