Summary: Nearly every witch and wizard in the magical community suffered in the aftermath of the Great Battle of Hogwarts, including Draco Malfoy. He’s no longer the cocky, arrogant, slick-haired Prince of Slytherin, but a haunted, vulnerable young man. Finally free of his father and the Dark Lord’s clutches, he revels in his new found independence. The wizarding society is broken and rebuilding, and Draco returns to Hogwarts to repeat his seventh year. Newly appointed as Head-Boy, it seems Draco has changed. But has he changed enough to accept Hermione Granger as Head-Girl?
Chapter Seven is up! Leave a review :D
its nice ..but isnt it a little short?? by the way keep up the good work :D...
Author's Response: I know, I know; but it was just a little transition chapter... Chapter 6 is wayyyy longer! Thanks for the nice review :D
the story line was good... n i like this story...its bit kind of diferent from others on draco/hermione. but i do wanna ask something why is the chapter 1 below chapter 2?
Author's Response: Hey, thanks for taking the time to write the review! That error should be fixed now. Continue to read & review please (:
Summary: Draco Malfoy was in a mess. His father was determined to get their stance back in the wizarding world, even if it meant ruining his son's life. Draco needed to find a way to stop his father's disgusting plans, and fortunately, he found just the answer: Astoria. The solution? Pretending to be engaged to Astoria when they're truly not, so that his father doesn't get him married to some Mudblood.
But what happens when this little game called pretend turns into something more? Will it be too late before they both realize their feelings for each other?
I love it:D.... plz continue.........
Author's Response: Glad you love it! Of course I'll continue. :)
haha :D... i really cant wait for the next chapter... its a realy good story... i think its a very good thing ur filling the gaps on Draco and Astoria... this is the first story i read on them:D....
Author's Response: Aww, thanks. I also hope I can update faster. It's reviews like yours that keep me going! :)
Summary: Sirius was staring at the patch of carpet where the boggart, pretending to be Harry’s body, had lain. (OotP, Ch 9)
What was going through Sirius’s mind during “The Woes of Mrs. Weasley”? A missing moment from OotP.
I love it... it nearly made me to cry...i really pity sirius... i guess, j.k.rowling was right by taking sirius's life so that he could join james and know that he didnt blame sirius for what had happened... Im sure only then sirius would be peaceful... great story though... love it!!!
Summary: With Ron's constant snogging of his new girlfriend, Lavender, Hermione is never around. Yes, she was jealous of Lavender and upset with Ron, but what was she doing all this time? The rise of Voldemort, constant pressure in school, and her love for Ron are clear issues in her life, but what if Hermione was struggling with other problems—problems no one else, save one, knew about? What if, while in love with Ron, she found herself falling in love with someone else—someone none of her friends, nor herself, would ever have expected? This is the bittersweet tale of the love that blossomed between Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy during their 6th year at Hogwarts and beyond.
**UPDATE:** I am sorry for taking such a long break. I am now rewriting the story from a third person perspective because I just feel it is my stronger style and I feel I could not describe things the way I wanted to simply from Hermione's eyes, especially because she could not know Draco's thoughts, which I would like to include. I hope to finish the new Prologue in a few days and hopefully it will be validated quickly. I will probably just delete the current chapters as soon as the new version is accepted. Please continue to review and let me know what your opinion of the new version is. Again, I am so sorry. Future updates will be announced on my livejournal account so please follow there and comment. Thank you for any fans left out there who believe in my story. I am also looking for a beta to please look over my chapters before I submit them. Send me a message on the forum (username: redcastle) or on livejournal (username: cherryredcastle) if you are interested.
I love it so far but would it be AU later on? i mean as we all know that in the 7th book, hermione and ron would be together....thats y im asking....
Author's Response: Well I don't want to give everything away, but if you read my story notes you should be able to figure out the ending way ahead of time. So no, it really won't be AU unfortunately, but that's the whole point of my story. I hope that doesn't disappoint anyone :(
It was like a wizard tale. The clever Slytherin helps a hag who later repays the debt. Except that Rose Weasley wasn't a hag, and Scorpius didn't expect to call in the favour.

:D...once again i love it... i liked the part where scorpius decorated the fairy cakes especially for Rose! it was so sweet... will Scorpius know that his grandfather wasnt truthful abt Harry?? Its kinda sad to see Scorpius keep thinking abt wat his grandfather told him... I like the 4 rules to date my daughter part...yeah ur right, it would hav been fun to think of how Teddy's eyes would b getting huge...:P...I liked the way u wrote abt how the kids n Scorpius played:P....cat wait for the next one!!!!!!!! update soon:D
It's all about perception. Harry didn't know what that spell would do, but he used it anyway and almost killed Draco. He didn't want him to die, but that wouldn't have made Scorpius' father less dead if Snape hadn't been there, so Lucius was speaking the truth...as he saw it.
I'll be interested in your reaction to the next chapter!
I love it:D.... cant wait to see hows the weasley guys n harry going to react.... I do feel bad about the george/angelina relationship....i also really loved scorpius' patronus!!!!!!!! looking forward to read the next chappie!!!!! update soon!
Author's Response: I feel bad too...just not enough to keep them trapped in an unhealthy relationship. Thank you for loving the Patronus!
I like this chapter... wonder wat shape is scorpius's patronus... haha update soon... cant wait for the next chapter
Author's Response: I can't wait for your reaction! :D

update sooon.... cant wait 2 read d next chapter!!!
Author's Response: It's a mystery about the sofa, :D, but my guess is Christmas at the Burrow, Rose was asleep in the middle of their bed upstairs, so Hermione and Ron came down to the lounge for a kiss and cuddle. ^_~
once again, i love it... I also love the Trackingbralls... it sound so facinating... :D...cant wait to read more... update soon ya!
Author's Response: Thank you for loving the Trackingbrall! It isn't the only thing up Lucius' sleeve. ;)
Life has never been so difficult, or so dangerous. In midst of the deaths, attacks, violence and betrayal, James, Sirius, Remus, Peter, Lily, Alice and Violet leave Hogwarts forever to live a new life as adults. With the secret organization that Dumbledore founded, known as the Order of the Phoenix, they risk their lives to fight against the terrible Lord Voldemort who threatens to take over everything they live for. In spite of the terror, good things still happen, and most ties of friendship still endure through hardship.
We join the Marauders and their friends as they struggle through life, death, friendship, love, and betrayal. Their lives will never be the same again.
I love it... i like the way u assume on how the marauders and the others were out of school... its great... not everyone does it.... usually they tend to start from their school time... keep it up... update soon ya... im looking forward to read the next chapter..
Author's Response: Thank you, I'll update as soon as I can :)
Summary: "Between the woods and frozen lake, The darkest evening of the year..." Lily and James take a walk.
i love it! it was a very sweet chapter...
Summary: After the disastrous events of the end of the Marauder's fifth year, a fuming Lily Evans decides that that arrogant James Potter and his friends need a taste of their own medicine. The straight-laced Prefect suddenly finds herself pranking her class's trickiest boys--and maybe even enjoying it. Coupled with a series of mysterious apology letters that Lily has begun receiving, it's bound to be an interesting year.

wow, its a really great story. I love how it is heading so far... but im a bit confused abt something, isnt Lily's patronous supposed to be a doe? Sorry, its just a bit confused thats all.Other than that, great job!! Update soon. Im loking forward to it.
Author's Response: thanks! and yeah, hers and snapes both are. i kind of figured since they both become totally different people later in there lives, their Patronuses are going to change. Like Snape's not so desperately in love with Lily right now, and like his whole life becomes about her after she dies, but he hasn't gotten to that point. JJust what i figured, hope that helps!
haha yup it helps.... thanks.... but do update soon ya.... i reallly cant wait for the rest of the story!
I love it love it love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Its a really good chappie... especially the part where James talks to Lily... It was sweet... oh i also lked the part where LIly smacked directly into the bookcase after telling off Snape, who snickered at her.... could u update soon? Oh ya by the way, how far r u going to write the stoy? till James and Lily gets married or till their graduation or till the night where they protect their child??
Author's Response: Thanks so much! :) the next chapter should be up soon, hopefully! Well, this story is going to go until the end of the sixth year. I'm probably going to do at least one sequel though, maybe two, depending on how it turns out. Glad you liked it!!
Summary: Harry Potter returns to Hogwarts for his seventh year. With Quidditch, NEWT's, and a pompous new Transfiguration teacher this year is certainly not going to be dull! Mix in some Marauders, a couple jokes, and a bunch of good friends and this will be Harry's best year yet!
Nominated for QSQ'a Best General Fic. Thank you!
yea i did... i like the part where Harry wants to send off Fred in style:P...
Author's Response: Thank you for reviewing! I'm glad you liked it... I hope you will keep on reading! --ginnygirl16
i like Fred's funeral...:D...i also love the part where Harry holds n plays with Teddy!! cant wait for the next chapter!!! update soon!!!
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked Fred's Funeral. I thought it would be a nice touch. You know, I'm very glad you like the part with Harry and Teddy. In the original version of this chapter, that wasn't even in it. However, the mods thought I should add a little more, and that's what I came up with. I'm glad to hear you like it. The next chapter is in the queue right now, and I have a few more chapters done, so hopefully the updates will be fast. Thank you for your review, and I hope you keep reading. --ginnygirl16
Summary: Gabrielle LeCorte grew up living next door to the Potters and they were like her family. When they started school she was given the task to 'keep an eye' on James Potter and try to keep him out of trouble. This was easier said than done, especially once he met Sirius Black, Remus Lupin and Peter Pettigrew. She became best friends with Sirius Black and was lucky enough to hang around with the infamous Marauders, even if she was more like a babysitter. Would she be destined to clean up after them her whole Hogwarts career or would she break away and become something separate from just the 'Marauder’s girl'?
I love it so far:D...Gabby seems really sweet and i like the part where she has some control over the marauders! Especially on James n Sirius.... I cant wait to see how James n Lily r going to b together from ur point of view... :P...i cant wait to read more.... update soon!!!!!!!!!
