OK, just follow the links (copy and paste into the web address bar) :D The last two are Story info.
Any Questions? ;)
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
Oh, oh! Tell me what she said, I love this story!
Author's Response: Thank you :)\r\nI\'m writing the final chapter this very second. \r\n~ Cassie
Summary: Night time has once again taken its toll on a child who needs to hear a story before bed.
“I don’t want any of those books, Daddy. I want a real story. Please.”
“All right, what real story would you like?"
“I dunno, something with a prince and a princess in it.”
“Would a Half-Blood Prince suffice?”

hesitate to review? Not a chance. Not that I know what to say, but you know me well enough to know how very happyful it made me. *squees* And still, at the same time, sad because...it wasn't that way. I am debating, though... on the one hand Sev's daughter could be called nothing other than Lily, on the other, wouldn't that get a little confusing? Still, the first option wins.
Author's Response: Meda darling, the way to happines is to adopt this is canon.:D This and Sempra together will show that Jo Rowling!:p And even though he may be calling one Lily and the other may come, Sev won't complain much as he values both dearly.;)=Sammy
Summary: Some say Lucius just used Narcissa as a toy. Some say he had a little heart at the beginning, but lost it soon after. But what if he just decided not to show what he felt? A betraying little piece of parchment found in the basement of Malfoy Manor tells all.
:D I believe in Lucius/Narcissa (mostly) so I loved this poem. My only ntipick is that you start in one style and finish in another. Nevertheless, the effect is interesting. You write good poetry :)
Author's Response: WOW! Meda! You\'re andromeda_tonks on MNFF Beta Boards, right? I\'m moonstone.silver - Munno the Lamoe :) Thannkkkkkssss for being my FIRST REVIEWER! OMG! *dies* thanks a lot :)
Summary: It is a blustery day in Hogsmeade, and Arthur and Bill Weasley are minding their own business. That is, until they each receive letters instructing them to mind each other's business in a most intrusive and rather final sort of way.
But this is not just about Arthur and Bill. They happen to be a small part of a much bigger, much more ambitious scheme that they know nothing about, run by a frighteningly powerful organization. What exactly is going on, and what exactly will Arthur and Bill do?
Written as an entry for the Gauntlet, by Schmerg_The_Impaler of Hufflepuff house (most of the Bill bits) and Neville's Girl of Slytherin house (most of the Arthur bits). Probably the strangest thing either of us has ever written.
*dies of hysterics* *notices DLB and Douglas Adams references* *dies some more* Schmergo, you already knew I think your stories are amazing (well, actually I think I told you that you stole my personality, but it comes to the same thing). Nevilles Girl you are officially amazing too as of now.
PS Schmergo - I asked my mum if I could experiment with blowing up pop tarts if I took the toaster in the back garden so it didn't do anything too drastic to the kitchen, but she wouldn't let me for some reason...
Author's Response: HOOO-RAY! Hey, where was the Douglas Adams reference? I can\'t remember what it was... and I might have done it accidentally without even realized because I\'ve totally internalized his books and thought I invented them. And yeah, I had to reference Dark Lord\'s Blog... as for Nevilles Girl, she was officially amazing BEFORE now, too. You should check out some of her stories!
Summary: It’s August, and the new school term approaches. Dumbledore is forced to look for another teacher for Defence Against the Dark Arts, and his choice falls on Remus Lupin. However, since the man keeps a dark secret, he is afraid for it to ever come out.
Will Remus accept the offer to teach at Hogwarts? And if yes, how is he going to prepare himself?

That was a lovely story. It was just the right mixture of happiness and sorrow at his memories, and they were well integrated with the more recent events. Double thumbs up from me :D *huggles*
Author's Response: Awww, thank you, sweetie! *squishes* That's lovely of you to review me. *huggles back* Thanks!!
Summary: Every year the Sorting Hat thinks up new lyrics to present on September first to introduce the first years to Hogwarts. The following poem is what the Hat could have sung one year.
O.O Bine, how do you DO that? I know you're all over-whelmed already tonight, but I'm going to say this anyway: you are an amazing poet and I'm proud that you're my friend and PA. *hugglesquishes*
Author's Response: . . .
Can't speak here for a moment...
I'm so flattened. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I'm proud to be your friend, too.*squishes tightly*
Summary: 'Keep her - them - safe. Please.'
'And what will you give me in return, Severus?'
'In - in return?'
(DH, chapter 33)
Trying to think of a word for this story... hmm... *cries* Even if I never see her again, she will be safe. Dumbledore will make sure of that. Finally, I managed to do something right. *wails* I'm crying all over your story again... the word that comes to mind is bittersweet... and phenomenal... and *sobsniff*
Summary: Once again the four most mischievous boys Hogwarts has probably ever seen have been caught when executing a prank. The consequences? A detention. But they never saw this detention coming…
What with this being a MWPP fic, I am making a supreme effort not to SevGirl all over it, because that's no help whatsoever. Well. It might be very helpful but not so much to this fic.
So. Good characterisation of the bullying toerag and brat *cough* I -er- mean Sirius and James. I liked your Remus too :).
Yes I *did* laugh out loud. It was funny. But only because you wrote it that way. Not because James is funny. Er... yes.
The whole not SevGirling thing really doesn't suit me. When do we get the pocket crosswords of Severus Snape?
Author's Response: *giggles* Meda, you're amazing me over and over again. *huggles* I can really feel how much effort it was for you to not "SevGirl all over" the story. *giggles again* And sorry to disappoint you, but I planned on having Sev's chapter being the last. And I haven't done any serious writing for that story in the last weeks. So you'll have to be a bit more patient. But thanks for reading and reviewing in the first place. *squishes*
PS: "Hallo" is written with one "o" only. *hint hint* ;-)
Summary: They say that before death, one's life passes in front of one's eyes. For Lily, one particular moment surfaces. Of the one she promised to remember. Of the one who promised to remember her. But seems to have forgotten.
This is an entry for the Gryffindor In House Challenge 'A Banner for Thee', by Elmindreda of (obviously) Gryffindor.
This made me cry... he was there for her as I so wish we could have been... and you just had to go and kill him off again. *sniffles* and who lives? JAMES! grrr. James being clumsy and saying all the wrong things. As he would. As least Lily got rid of him, lol. *sobs some more* and she thought he had forgotten her...
I will remember you…
Why did you forget me, Sev?
it was that bit that made me cry. Poor Sev. As if he ever, ever forgot Lily.
Author's Response: Your 'grr' about James made me giggle, Meda. ;)
I'd apologize for making you sad with this story, but you are a fellow SevGirl and therefore understand. *hugs*
Summary: Sirius tries to deal with the events of October 31, 1981. However, nothing goes as planned. Nothing makes sense anymore. Nothing is left. And everything is black.
That was one of the most powerful fan-fic poems I've ever read. Normally I find empathising with Sirius tricky to say the least, being a passionate SevGirl, but this was too good to not like. The use of language and the flow was impeccable, it really did retell a story I thought I knew in a new light. The short lines are highly reminiscent of the way that thoughts, especially panicked, shocked thoughts can be. My only suggestion would be to add "Sirius Black" to the end in the same way that you put all the other "black" phrases in the poem. It didn't really feel complete to be until I read his name in your A/N, which suggests to me that that should be in the poem. However, if you disagree feel free to ignore this. Good work and good luck with your future writing.
Author's Response: thanks so much for the review! I'm glad I could open your eyes to the world of sirius black. thanks for the suggestion and i'll consider it. ~Burning Star
