Hi. This account is shared between the two beaters. Of course, me being the one writing this, is beaternumber1. My sister being the one sitting beside me, is beaternumber2.
Hi! I am a crazy, hyper, 15 year old girl who adores Harry Potter, and writing, and drawing, and swimming, and is OBVIOUSLY the number 1 beater on this account.
Is a lot calmer and more practical than my younger and annoyinger sister. I am 18 and started reading this site because my sister left it open on the computer. I must say, that i like many of these stories almost as much as the actual books.
First the worst, second the best! HAHAHA so there, beaternumber1.
Thanks to Bine for the awesome banner, that can be seen on the beta forum!!
I wanted to let you know that I am very impressed with this story. It is a unique idea and you write it so well that we are never sure what to believe. I wanted to trust Draco so bad but even when you are listening to his thoughts you are never sure what to believe.
I think your portrayal of Draco is really well done and I love the idea that all he cares about is staying alive. I think this really fits with his personality and past experiences. He is just a weak kid in this fic and I look forward to seeing how he develops in your sequel.
As for Hermione I realize that sometimes we have to be flexible with characters to make a story fit but I really don't think that Hermione would have told Draco so much about the order no matter how in love she was. Even if she did tell Draco I am positive that she would have connected him to the leak as soon as Ron mentioned it.
I love the description and details that you include in your writing. The portions of the man talking to Voldemort are really well done.
Thanks for a great story and I can't wait for more. I especially hope we learn more about the ghost and the torture room in the sequel.
(by the way I only ever read completed fics but since you've kind of trapped me in the story you had better finish this sequal FAST :)
Author's Response: I see Hermione as a very trusting character. Coupled with the whirlwind of love and the stress of the upcoming battle, I think she just needed an objective outlet - someone intelligent and knowledgeable about the situation, but no longer in the middle of it all. For her, this outlet was Draco, who, to her knowledge, had forsaken Voldemort when he took refuge with the Order. Obviously, a big mistake. I see your point, however. :)
And I'll try to post the sequel as quickly as I can! I appreciate your patience, however. Thanks so much for reading and reviewing!!
Ahahahaha That is like the most awesomest ending in the entire world. My mom and sisters are standing at the top of the stairs asking why i'm laughing like a maniac! RANDOM: From reading Fanfiction and Harry Potter i have learned just how many types of flowers can be used as girls names... Violet, Rose, Pansy, Lily, Petunia..... interesting, very interesting. Anywaty great job i absolutly adored it!
This is a completly and totally awesome story! I can't believe how well you characerized Snape! It was amasing! You had a couple typo's though and you seem to type the same word twice alot.... I do that too... Anyway great job!
This chapter was really good! Please hurry with the next chapter!
Author's Response: Well, I got an email saying the next chapter was approved, but I think it\'s stuck in the queue because it hasn\'t appeared yet. You\'ll get to read it soon. Thanks for reading!
This chapter was so sad! I cried for almost the entire thing and my mom kept looking at me like i was crazy. I guess it it to cloze to home, my grandpa is dieing of blood cancer. Anyway, i abso.uly adore this story. I've been reading it for 4 hours straight! Great Job!
Author's Response: Don\'t worry, I\'ve gotten weird looks too whenever I\'m reading something on the computer, usually laughing at something. I\'m sorry about your grandpa :(. Wow, four hours? *Applaudes* you have an excellent attention span. Thanks for reading!
ahh! no this chapteer can't be over, no!!!!!! Please hurry with the next chapter!
Author's Response: Yes, it\'s over, this chapter. There\'s plenty more to come! Thanks for reading!
Has this even been validated yet? I'm off to find out. If it has WHY HAVEN"T I READ IT YET!?!?!?
Author's Response: Nope, I just put it in the queue a few days ago, so it\'s not validated yet.
I love, love, love Haley! She acts just like me! She is hyper and funny and pranky! And her name even rythmes with mine! I know you have loads of other stories and loads of othe people probably review you, but i always adore when someone tells me that my stories are great (not so much when they tell me they'r terrible) So once again... This story is better than alot of published books that i've read! I started this story this morning at about 12:30 (i suppose thats not morning...) and i just finished it at 7:02. I havn't stopped for anything but to eat! I'm off to read your next book. Can't wait to read more.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I love Haley, too! And no, I absolutely NEVER tire of geting good reviews... I get excited every time I get a new review. I\'m so glad that you like his story, because I wrote it three years ago when I was thirteen, so it\'s totally different from my current writing style.
I wish you'de finish this! It was the first story i read on this sight and I check on it every once in a while to see if it has been updated.... I joined in 2007 and again. FINISH THIS STORY! Please.
Thats so funny! Really short but great story all the same! I loved how there actually is someone who's name Roonil Wazlib...
I just read this story for the second time, it was just as great as the first time! I laughed and cried and gave the computer wierd looks. You really should publish some of your work.
ok Haley is still my fav, but Emma Giorgi and Teddy are pretty darn close! Just so you know I started readin The five at 12:39 this morning. Its now 11:48 pm. So as you can tell i love these stories. ( If you can think of anyother complements just pretend that I said them K? ) So anyway... goodnight!
Author's Response: Wow, thank you! I can\'t believe you finished my two books in one day... your eyes must be blurry, and your head must be spinning! (That\'s how I felt when I read all of Dylan Meconis\' brilliant webcomic \"Bite Me\" in one day.) And I\'m so glad you like Emma-- a lot of people hate her. There\'s a whole crazy story from Emma\'s point of view called \"Pride and Pre-Juiced Plums,\" which is a spoof of \"Pride and Prejudice,\" and the first four chapters are up on my profile-- you might like it!
Oh Oh i hope what i think is going to happen happens! But i'm not gonna say what i think because if i'm wrong it'll sound really stupid....
Your story so far is absolutly amazing! I think my favorite character is Jacob right now i wanna know more about him. He seems like he has a secret. Are Nicolette, Persephone and Valient in their third year or are they second years too?
Any way, Great story! I can't wait for the next chapter!
Teddy Lupin's first year at Hogwarts. Canon-compliant. Nominated for a 2008 QSQ for best Post-Hogwarts story.
The war is over, and all is well, they say, but the wounds remain unhealed. Bitterness divides the Houses of Hogwarts. Can the first children born since the war's end begin a new era, or will the enmities of their parents be their permanent legacy?
That was great! You are an amazing writer. This morning i was reading this chapter but i didn't finish it, so my teacher let me read part of it in English class today! Anyway, the ending was superb, I can't believe how well you tied everything up. Though the favor that Teddy owes could be a great sequal. I really liked Ophilia's character, and Violets. I normally like the Slytherins in stories, even though on sorting quizzes and stuff i always wind up a Hufflepuff. That's okay, Hufflepuffs are awesome!
Anyway great job... and i'm off to read your other stories! : )
This was a realley awesome chapter keep up the good work! : )
Great chapter! I cant wait for the next one!
I think that this is my favorite chapter so far! I absolutly love it! Please hurry with the next chapter!
AHHH!!!!! How could you stop, jk but please, please, please update soon. This is one of my favorite stories on fanfiction!
This was a very interesting chapter. It really showed us a little more about Violet. I am beginning to think that the sorting hat didn't really put any student in a place that they didn't belong. It just put them in a house where certain atrebutes could develope. I think that Teddy is good and by being in gryfindor he is becoming braver as he tries to live up to all his expectations. I think that Violet could be in Ravenclaw because she thinks about things so throughly. She could be in Gryfindor because she can stand up for what she believes in. She could be in Huflepuff because she is a hard worker. Or she could be in Slytherin because she has determination and she is a leader.
I can'tait to read the next chapter!
YAY! I knew Slytherins were cool even if i hated Draco. I love you rcharacter's especially Violet. She wasn't inthis chapter so much but i can't wait for the next ones. Kai is being really brave going to help those kids like that. If he's in Ravenclaw wouldn't he have thought about a plan alittle more... or am i just being steriotypical? Golly and the other elves can always go and get another job can't they? I really hope Ophilia can help Teddy out, she's a great character. She's Slytheriny, without being evil. I also really liked what Stephen did, i didn't know he had it in him... but i'm glad he did.Anyway great job and hurry with the next chapter!
