errr UPDATE!!! i want to read a story where sirius survives, so finish it!!(and make harry good again...please!)
Summary: Sirius returns miraculously from behind the veil, uncovering a secret that's remainded hidden for too long and was obviously not supposed to be found...He undertakes the task of trying to fix the mistake he made all those years ago on Halloween night
well i just finished it and it's a bit hard to review 42 chapters in one go. but anyway. here goes. wow. really...i'm speechless and that doesn't happen very often. i've been glued to the screen. i LOVE this story!!!! i'm soooo happy to read a story in which sirius is still alive and it doesn't seem like a steaming pile of....mud. most fanfics in which sirius 'mysteriously' re-appears from behind the veil are really contrived and the plot has no logic to follow, it's just like 'hey, i'm back, yay!!' and then they never finish it cos they run out of ideas. but you write really well. i love your characterisation of, well, everyone!!! no-one was really OoC, and the plot worked really well, and although at times it got a little confusing, it was always clear that it would be explained, the reader wasn't just always going WTF?!? you held all the different plot details together really well, so that it all came out really clearly written and focused with an actual sense of direction. i loved the way sirius and harry came closer, since i think that was the tragedy of OotP, the amount of undeveloped and unexplored affection and depth that their relationship didn't have time to develop due to his unfortunate demise. overall there are so many great things i could say about the story. but you really are a great writer, you succesfully maintained the pace, interest and plot momentum throughout 42 chapters (and there's more to come, yay!!), whereas most of the really long fanfics really drag and meander and lack cohesion in the plot. and it's usually offputting that there are so many chapters cos it's not well-constructed. but your story avoided all those pitfalls. as well as being really original. great idea and you really carried it through the whole story. anyway, i digress, 100 million billion/10. love your story, love you, please update!!!!
Author's Response: wow...i really don't know what to say. Only thank you. Thank you SO MUCH! I love hearing that people enjoy my story, but to hear the details about how they enjoy it are even better. I realy hope i continue to live up to the standards you gave me :D and I hope you'll keep reading as I attempt to finally finish this fanfic tht's occupied almost a whole year of my life :D
Summary: Three years post-Hogwarts. The final battle has started on the night of Harry's twenty-first birthday and he and Voldemort finally face off -- but Voldemort still has to play his last card to get rid of Harry -- by sending him and three of his 'friends' into the past exactly twenty-one years. The four of them now have to struggle to be accepted, keep their identities from certain persons and find a way home.
This story will contain some romance -- if you don't accept certain couples or just desperately want to know who's going to pair up, just e-mail me, and I'll tell you.
great story! really enjoying it so far, and i like the way harry intereacts with jame s and lily. although the whole 'knowing that they die, yet hot telling them thing' is driving me insane. especially peter pettigrew, i wish harry could hex him soooo badly. anyway, i REALLY hope that you continue with the story and update soon, cos if you don't i'll never know what happens!!! noooooo!!!
Summary: Emily Gardner's life was at best uneventful and at worst slower than a tourtise enjoying a day at the beach. Until, through a series of near fatal events, she falls under the care of the mauraders.Soon, all of their lives become just a tad more interesting. But then again, when you put a frightened rat, a failed Don Juan, a chivalrous werewolf, a handsome bastard, and an aspiring actress with a talent for sticking her nose in places where it doesn't belong together in one dormitory...interesting becomes an understatement.
(rated for mild swearing and some sexual inuendo latter on)
wow, loved that story, it so totally kicked ass. i'm even more in love with sirius now, i felt like i was melting along with emily when you described him....aaahhhh sweet sirius, oh how i love you...but i'm glad you put remus and emily together. that was right and nice and all fuzzy butterflies sort of thing. i really enjoyed that and a sequel would be so awesome. i'd like to see how emily gets on next year, although i feel bad for her that she'll only get 1 year in hogwarts. and good characterisation with her uncle. a very very repugnant character. oh yeah and last thing, the irish will never give up!!!
oohhhhhh very good, i liked the way he found out. but he's going to get all angry and scary now. and i bet there's gonna be some big rows now between ginny and harry. poor ginny. i feel sorry for what's gonna come now. but i want to read it soon, so update as soon as you can!!!!
evil cliffie!!!! update, update!! this is a great story really exciting and i'm intrigued as to how they will win the battle (assuming they win...). although i'm a h/g and h/r shipper, but just update update update!!!!
Summary: "What can I say?" James shrugged his shoulders. "We are just obviously,"
James laughed, "Meant to be."
Lily Evans and James Potter share absolutely nothing in common, not even their feelings for each other. Lily, perceived as a ‘model student,’ detests the handsome, popular, Quidditch star James, who she thinks to be something of a git. James, on the contrary, has been infatuated with Lily for years, and has let her and the whole school know it.
As time progresses into Voldemort’s ‘reign of terror,’ the two have to learn to trust, tolerate, and love each other.
Please note, this story is incomplete, and will likely remain so for a long time. I apologize!
awwww, that was a sad ending, poor james and his mother. but i liked the interaction and deepening relationship between lily and james. great chapter, was VERY happy to see an update. so keep truckin' and keep up the good work and update asap (of course :)
great chapter, this is one of the superior lily/james stories, loved this chapter and looking forward to the update, enjoy your hols and come back ready to write and write and write!!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much :)
Summary: After a supposed potion mix-up, Ron and Hermione go through some life changing experiences. Will Ron be able to control his fascination with Hermione's body? Will Hermione be able to...you know...go? You'll have to read to find out.
soooooooooo funny, i swear i've been sitting here laughing like a maniac at all the toilet bits esp. the ron 'helping' her go. i could just imagine harry's face. precious. truly great. seriously one of the truly funny humour fanfics. slightly confused as to whether or not it actually happened, but i hope your next chapter will make that clear but first you need to UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!! but seriously like 20/10. amazingingly funny.
what?!?!?noooo!!!! you can't leave it there! that's such an evil cliffhanger. he can't be dead. no. you've just written it in a misleading way. why??????why is everyone is determined to kill my favourite characters??? she must know the truth, DD isn't evil!!(nor is he dead!)
Summary: James and Lily-their seventh year. We all know what happens in the end, but what about the beginning? In their last year at Hogwarts, mysteries unravel, friends are betrayed, and, of course, couples destined to be fall in love.
i'm really confused...am i stupid? but i like all the imagery, very scary. but just confusing, but i'm sure it'll become clear. i'm intrigued though so update soon!!!
Author's Response: lol no you're not stupid! Confused? Good! You're supposed to be! Intrigued? Good!!! You're supposed to be! This is only part one after all.......
Summary: *Last Chapter up!!! It's been awesome everyone!!! Over 4000 reads and 300 reviews!!! You guys are amazing!!!* It is summer before sixth year and everyone has gotten together to celebrate Harry's Birthday when something goes terribly wrong for Ron and Hermione. How will everyone handle this terrible event and how will everything turn out?! *~*this fic is written pre HBP (see a/n on my pro for more info)*~*
great chapter, i want to know what ginny saw!!!!!! harry should have taken it though, after all he's the main one in the final battle and it would have helped if he could've seen how it happened. but anyway...update asap!!!! 10/10
Author's Response: take a number, everyone wants to know what ginny saw, lol...update as soon as it's approved...i can't make the mod's move any faster than they can, lol...thanks for the review=)
great, truly great!!!! i love the whole thing, esp. the indiana jones bit, "we have room, drop down beside us mr. jones quickly!!!" (not word for word i know...) but i LOVE it!!! you have to do space mountain next, go on!!! please!!!
yay!!! we have lift-off!! finally. ahhhh i feel all fuzzy inside. a very well written chapter. you didn't go overboard on the romance. a perfect balance. not too much schmaltz and not too little. 10/10
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I didn't want to make it all smutty or anything, that would've ruined it really glad you liked it, thanks for the great review!
loved your story, good to see harry get more powerful. BUT is there a sequel? if not go on, write one please!!! i would love to see how harry would use all this elemental magic stuff in the real world. and people's reactions to harry creating random spheres of fire. 10/10. just waiting for that sequel now....:)
Summary: Pre HBP, post OotP, no HBP spoilers. AU as of HBP
Troubled over the loss of his godfather, Sirius Black. Harry finds himself drowning in depression and fear; until he gets a visitor with a gift even Harry would never have imagined. A gift, which gives him hope, and faith in himself; a gift, that would bring Harry Potter, power beyond his imagining, and make Harry's sixth year his most eventful yet. And hopefully bring him the strength needed to win over his enemies, and fulfill the Prophecy in his favor…
This story is complete. Check out the sequel, Time of the Lost. ;)
ohhh i'm intrigued, what the hell is going to happen. oh no harry will be evil (please don't make him evil!). ohhhh keep writing!!!
Author's Response: Harry maybe on the road to darkness, but there are still speckles of light in his future. :)
grrrrr, i hate this stupid log in thing, had to log in about 20 million times!!!!!!anyway, calm...yes review, i smell a rat, i like the whole thing about merlin's diaries and the minister but there's something off, something very bad is gonna happen.... and also for the potion it said unicorns BLOOD, will he not live a cursed life the moment the blood of a unicorn passes his lips? something is going to go very badly wrong. i want to look away, but cannot. you've well and truly sucked me in, so UPDATE!!!!!! (please : )
strange conccept for the story, but i like it! the whole ginny/harry thing is so tragic though! all i can say is update soon!!!
Author's Response: \"Strange concept\" ~ I must agree ;) The thing is... no one tried to talk me out of it, LOL! Thanks for reviewing. I should have the next chapter up within a week. (unless my beta\'s decide major rewrites are necessary ;))
Summary: Harry is entering his 6th year at Hogwarts. NEWT classes, Quidditch and a new DADA teacher all add up to a seemingly normal year. But what is Voldemort up to now? Where are his Death Eaters? Tortures and killings have started, but how much of it is all just a decoy in the great scheme of things? This time, Harry must leave the comfort of his friends and face his darkest fear.
glued to the screen! that was a great chapter, really exciting. update asap please!!!!
Author's Response: Lol! Chapter 18 is in the queue and I'm so pleased you like it!
it's going great, i'm really enjoying this story, although it would be nice if there could be be some sort of truce, understanding, respect between snape and harry. it looked like snape was being nice(ish) and he was being more human, but harry's still hanging onto the hatred. well that's what i would like to see develop, but it's your story and you're doing a great job. like the romance it's there in the story, but it doesn't overshadow the action and excitement, you got the balance just right, you're steering clear of the trashy indulgent romantic descriptions which is good, just needs a smidgen more description, literally just a sentence or two, not paragraphs (that way lies trashy romance novels lol!). although please don't do the 'pushing away to protect' thing so overused! great job, keep trucking and update soon please!!!
Author's Response: Ooh, long review. Yay! Anyway, I'll get to the point...
I don't want to say too much about Harry and Snape as that is the main focus for the end of the story. The end has been written for quite a while now so it's just a case of editing and then updating chappies.
Thanks for your suggestions on romance though - I've added a bit more romance in the next chapter but more action's coming very, very soon! I think I told someone else as well but the whole 'push-away-cos-of-protecting-Ginny' thing is NOT going to happen. *Shuddering* If I read one more fic where that happens...
I'm waffling, sorry. Thanks for the review and chapter 12 is coming soon!
