Summary: 2009 QSQ Awards Winner for Best Chaptered Canon Romance
Before the chosen one was ever born, his parents had to meet, fall in love, and defy Voldemort three times. Easier said than done. Things were never easy for Harry Potter's parents, but it gets a whole lot harder when Death Eaters kidnap Lily. This is the story of Lily and James, the trials they face, and how James finally wins Lily's heart. (pre-Deathly Hallows)
“I’ll always protect you.”
Overall, I really loved your story and admired your writing style.
The way you develop characters is spectacular in every way except perhaps Lily and James, coincidentally. They were a wee bit too whiny and the change happened much too fast.
You paint scenes very clearly and, as a reader and writer, I can appreciate that.
I particularly like the way you portray Sirius. Some people make him out to be flippant and carefree, but you showed a much deeper characterization of him that makes you stand out.
Keep writing. Every day. You have a gift, so don't waste it. I really loved reading this story. It is wholly unique:)
Author's Response: Thanks very much! I'm glad you enjoyed it for the most part, even if you didn't much care for how James and Lily were written.
Summary: Harry, Ron, Hermione and Ginny find themselves in a Muggle hotel in Godric's Hollow on the Winter Solstice. During an enthusiastic snowball fight, Harry and Ginny step through a stone circle that transports them seventeen years into the past. This may be the only chance Harry has to spend with his parents, and it may also be what he needs to figure out his relationship with Ginny.
The warning is for later chapters.
Edit: So, this was originally strictly a Harry/Ginny fic, but Ron and Hermione kept trying to get together too, so I felt like I had to change the category. And there's a bit of Lily/James in there too, though they're already married, and I've also added a bit of Remus/Tonks. Poor Sirius is the only Singleton (though he may manage to get a girl of his own)!
Edit: This story was cannon until after Deathly Hallows came out, so I changed it to Alternate Universe, but it's still pretty close to cannon. Only a few things will end up being different when the story ends.
Edit: I've changed all of the chapter titles to the titles of Christmas songs that I felt reflected the events in the chapters best. Tell me what you think! Does it fit?
It is really sad and I feel like crying! It is also very genius though.
Summary: This is the story that every good Harry Potter fan wants to come true. I hope that I do it justice. Harry has Ginny. Ron has Hermione. Life is sweet…no catch. It’s the perfect dream come true.
It's all full of fluff and pixie dust!
All review get a response!
Good writing but i am not a sucker for sappy stories though it would make a very good fairy tale.
Author's Response: wouldn\'t it though? thank you :)
Summary: Lily Potter has spent her whole life in the shadow of her father and brothers, but can the magic of her smile shine through all of that to make her own path in the world. Lily is a fourth-year Gryffindor and is dating a sixth-year Slytherin, Scorpius Malfoy. How will their family's react when they find out? Will their relationship help mend old feuds or will it be torn apart by them?
Nice plot. Will you put up another chapter please!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
Summary: They are all talented, some more than others. Some play Quidditch. Others are known for their brilliance in academics. They are the Marauders and a group that has lain in the shadows up to now, called the Lady Firebrands, known for their hot tempers and rather subdued practical jokes.
Romance will bloom.
Rivalries will blossom.
The author will try to stop using so many bad plant puns.
The story of Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs' NEWT years will be told.
These are the Amphibious Lizards.
That is hilarious! I like how you did everything!!!!!
Author's Response: Thank you!

Whoa! You have an amazing talent. Keep it up!!!!!
Author's Response: I wouldnt call it 'amazing' or a 'talent', but thanks all the same :)

The sequel to The Beginning and Unexpected Hope.
I love your writing. Stick to your quirky cool style!

That is, until certain events unfold which make denial impossible.
Now, he not only has to worry about getting the girl, but getting the girl to see he is more than an inconsiderate prat, and still worth having as a friend.
It is like super interesting!!
Author's Response: thanks.
Summary: Albus Dumbledore really did see socks when he looked into the Mirror of Erised. And this is the reason why.

Summary: The third war looms. As Harry's two eldest children start Hogwarts for the very first time, chilling Death Eater threats are sent to Headmistress McGonagall, and unknowingly, the Potter children stumble into a terrifying set of events which could mean that everything Harry worked for in the last war is erased in a matter of minutes...
Rewritten from the original to incorporate various Deathly Hallows spoilers, this story has been updated to include more plot twists and cliff hangers than ever before.
This is for the Xtreme Makeover Fanfic Edition Challenge by apollo13 of Slytherin House.
It has great potential. A very interesting first chapter!!!
