Skeletons in the Closet by Merlynne
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 124]

Summary: Centered around Draco Malfoy seven years after the Last Battle and his graduation from Hogwarts. He is working for the Order of the Phoenix and finds himself feeling out of place and more than a little useless. He cannot escape the things he's done or the people he used to care for. As Draco attempts to turn a new page, he is introduced to a witch who will have considerable impact on him. Contains some romance, ships too numerous to mention all of--Draco/OC, Harry/Ginny, Ron/Hermione for starters.

I think your story is well written and really intriguing. So, far, I enjoy it immensely. I just wanted to point out that in Ch. 2 of part 3, you say that Hermione and Ron live in Godric's Hollow. However, earlier in the story, it says that they live in Hogsmeade.
I will lt you know what I think of the whole thing when I finish- seems like Harry and company treat Draco badly.. I hope that changes!

Author's Response: Oh...thank you very much for pointing that out! Thats very silly of me. I will definitely be finding that mistake and correcting it. Thanks for the review!

Hey there! I have really enjoyed reading your story- are you going to finish it? It's been so long since you put out a chapter.... Anyway, your story is one of the better ones out there, and it would be a shame to leave it unfinished.

You have a great story here. You write really well, and I like how you have handled all the various characters and their emotions (no over-the-top sappiness.)
You better let Harry/Ginny be together though! (j/k)

Author's Response: Thanks, I\'m glad you like my handling of the characters, I put a lot of effort into it! And don\'t worry about H/G, I\'m a huge H/G shipper but I never like to give them the easy way out to be with each other ;) If you like the pairing, you should be very happy with the next chapter...

 

Teddy's Gift by SiriusRadcliffe
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 77]

Summary: The war may be over, but the true fight is just beginning. Two hearts, still searching for the truth, are brought together by the most unexpected person. And in the end, destiny overtakes them. From the imaginations of Miss Radcliffe and SiriusBlack1113 comes a story of love, passion, heartbreak, and healing.

I am very intrigued by your story so far. Especially how you show that things don't "magically" get better once the war is won. I was surprised that you chose to have Harry not need Ginny any more. I can only hope they will be reunited.... Update soon please!

Author's Response: Ah thank you! You\'re one of few who agree with our angsty post-war tone. More will be up soon! Miss Radcliffe~

 

Summary: My take on the first of those 'nineteen years' between the 36th chapter of DH and the epilogue.

Warnings: contains an unusually-shaped ring, a nosy neighbour, a rude shop assistant, shaving mishaps, thoughtful gestures, threatening goblins, and, unexplained appearances of Romantic!Ron and Romantic!Harry. You have been warned.

Rating is for *mild* innuendo and *mostly* innocent interactions but I wouldn't let my 9 year old read it.

I LOVE your story so far. It's well written, with a good plot. I like the humor in your story- I've laughed out loud more than once. I can't wait for your next chapter!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I\'m blushing from all your praise. I\'m glad you think it\'s humourous. I mean, I think it is, but it\'s nice to know someone else agrees! Chapter 4 is half-done, I hope it\'s up soon. Thanks again.

I love the chapter. Ron's imitation of Hermione towards the end actually made me laugh out loud. Completely brilliant- keep up the good work!!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm thrilled I made you LOL. cj

I loved how much of the books you have tied into the story. This chapter was excellent- can't wait for the next one!

Author's Response: Thanks very much for saying. I had thought the next chapter would be in the queue by now, but life interfered. Stay tuned! cj

LOVED it! Please keep writing- so many just leave wonderful stories unfinished!

Author's Response: Thank you! I do promise that this will be finished. I will not leave it unfinished, even if it takes many years to post! Just kidding. I hope to be all done by Christmas. It's my gift to my readers. cj
