Summary: This was started pre-HBP, and I was just going to let it slide...but I've really enjoyed writing it, so I'd like to see what other people think. I guess you would say it's AU, now, but give a shot! Meet the girl who will change Harry's life forever....
Story Completed! Thank you to everyone who was kind enough to leave a review!
Everything was okay until the ending. Talitha shouldn't have died as Harry would have made sure she got out. Also you made the ending to brief.
Summary: Ten years have elapsed since Dumbledore's death and McGonagall has Hogwarts back on its feet again. Hermione and Malfoy both teach at the school. But when a new teacher is hired to teach Defense Against the Dark Arts, everyone seems to feel that they've met him before. A story of mystery, passion, friendship, and jealousy… not to mention that Harry Potter has been missing for ten years and Voldemort is dead. (All violence is mild).
NEXT CHAPTER VALIDATED
There have been errors when this story gets submitted for validation, so the mods have to do it manually. Therefore it does not show when it has been validated -- but it has!!
Thank you to all my reviewers!!!
Disclaimer: I own my imagination, JK Rowling owns Harry Potter.
Ok It did enough to get me to review and continue.
Good so far nice chapter ending
Another good chapter
Are you going to finish this story?
Summary: Was it possible to save two lives in the past without altering history? Was it possible to give his parents a future twenty years after they had supposedly died? Teddy Lupin thought so...
Summary: Ok, so I really really want to apologize to everyone that has read this and wanted more. I just... I got to a point of writer's block, big time... and I got lazy. I'm really really sorry about that. And, I wish I could add to this, but I just... I don't really have other ideas. I'm terrible at writing chapter work. I can never seem to finish it. So, I know it left off awkwardly, but odds are, it's gonna stay that way, at least for a very long while. I'm very sorry. And, heads up, I completely beyond appreciate everyone that has read and reviewed this. I saw the read count being over 22,000 today, and I was just like WOW. I never ever imagined that would happen!!! Anyways, this is pretty much the end of the story indefinitely, at least for now.
Ok Now that I am hooked please update regularly and promise to finish the story. Thanks
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I reallly appreciate that. And, don't worry, I am going to finish it... :D
Summary: After fighting the biggest battle of his life, Harry Potter finds himself in new, uncharted territory. Beginning a week after the final battle at Hogwarts, Harry finds himself with many choices before him. He spent the summer trying to sort out his future with Ginny and the Ministry, but now must find a way to balance both. Ginny has left for Hogwarts to complete her final year, with Hermione, and Harry is starting work as a full-fledged Auror. They both must find a way to make their long-distance relationship work. Ginny hopes to find peace at school and Harry hopes to build his life around the expectation that Ginny will be with him forever. Despite all of this, there is more to the work that Harry is doing with the Ministry then he realises. Will Gaunt prove trustworthy in these new endeavours? Will Ginny and Hermione have a horror-free year at Hogwarts?
I am enjoying the story but it is dragging a bit. How many more chapters are you proposing?
Lindsey Tonks appears to be a normal, almost invisible Hogwarts student, but underneath her is someone far from normal. What the world doesn't know is that Lindsey is the daughter of two well-known imprisoned Death Eaters, and has an identity she must hide from the world. Underneath Lindsey is a girl named Lyra Lestrange, a girl who is meant to be a secret forever. But will it last forever?
*Begins in GoF and follows the series through DH.
**Will appeal to fans of the Black family! Prominent characters are Bellatrix, Tonks, Andromeda, Sirius, and (to an extent) Narcissa.
Part Four Synopsis:
It's the summer after Albus Dumbledore's death, and the whole world is falling to Voldemort and the Death Eaters. Broken-hearted Lyra, unable to return to Hogwarts, must go into hiding with her family. It doesn't last long, and eventually Lyra is faced with a choice: join or die. Lyra's decision comes with many surprises, including a new ally who follows her to the final battle of good versus evil. While Lyra's path may seem clear, she finds herself torn between two sides for the final time, and in the end, despite tragedy and loss, Lyra accomplishes the impossible...which defies all of the agreements she and her family ever made.
Three years later, the fic has been completely finished! Enjoy reading it without having to wait for new chapters. Thanks to those who patiently waited and faithfully reviewed!
Enjoyed the story. This chapter is a bit far fetched though. You just don't snap out of madness which Bella truly is. I did see DH part 1. I enjoyed it but so much was missing that I walked away feeling a bit robbed.
Author's Response: Yeah, I really struggled to make this chapter work. It'll take a long time for her to really snap out of her madness though. I tried fixing it, but I've been working on the story for three years now and at this point I just want it posted and done with :)
Author's Response: Thanks!
Summary: The war has been over for four years and everyone is moving on -- except for one. Nobody has heard from Harry Potter since he left after his defeat of Lord Voldemort. But now, in the year 2002, new threats against his life, a wedding between old friends, as well as a secret connection between his past and present will draw Harry out of his self-imposed exile and towards an ending that he long ago gave up upon. It is a journey about love, life, heartbreak, and the long road taken to get back home.
Really good so far
Summary: This fic is a series of missing moments from the time H/R&H were at Shell Cottage, beginning immediately after they Disapparated from Malfoy Manor. JKR shows us what was going on with Harry, but this is my version of what could have happened with Ron and Hermione after one of the most emotional/disturbing events in the entire series.
UPDATED June 2010 When I first wrote this fic, I didn't know what a beta reader was, and frankly, it showed. Thanks so much to Natalie for helping me polish this up and make it more readable. Thanks also to both Julia and Carole, whose helpful comments in the review section allowed me to make some much-needed corrections during the rewrite. I would love to know what you think ~ reviews are very much appreciated!
This was nominated in the 2010 Quicksilver Quill Awards for Best Canon Romance.
Thank you for writting this story. I have to say that this story has given more more enjoyment than any other fan fiction that I have read and I have read a lot of them. Please continue writting. Your style is terrific.
Author's Response: Wow. You have definitely made my day, and I appreciate you taking the time to review. I'm so glad you liked it, and I do plan to keep writing. :)
Survival. Separation. Reunion. Death cannot stop true love; all it can do is delay it for a while.
*A DH alternate ending story.*
I truly enjoyed your story. Thanks for writting it.
Author's Response: Thank you for being willing to go AU and read a story based on what I wish could have happened. :)
Good so far. When will next chapter be up?
Author's Response: Thanks! I hope soon, I'd love to have a happy ending before Christmas...or at least before the end of December :D.
