Behind those Emerald Eyes by makinmagic323
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 2008]

Summary: Ten years have elapsed since Dumbledore's death and McGonagall has Hogwarts back on its feet again. Hermione and Malfoy both teach at the school. But when a new teacher is hired to teach Defense Against the Dark Arts, everyone seems to feel that they've met him before. A story of mystery, passion, friendship, and jealousy… not to mention that Harry Potter has been missing for ten years and Voldemort is dead. (All violence is mild).


There have been errors when this story gets submitted for validation, so the mods have to do it manually. Therefore it does not show when it has been validated -- but it has!!

Thank you to all my reviewers!!!

2009 QSQs: Runner-up: Best Romance - Other Character Story

Add together one ladies' man, one Quidditch player, one werewolf, and one soon-to-be traitor. Then, mix in one imaginative idiot, one fiery redhead, one clever Ravenclaw, and one blonde artist. Stir counterclockwise until trouble occurs, and you are dealing with one of the best-loved group of friends in Hogwarts history. Follow the story of the four Marauders and four equally troublesome girls. See them deal with their first encounters of love, sorrow, heartache… and Death Eaters. How will these future Order members cope with the ordeals that life throws at them? Will love blossom in what was once thought a highly unlikely place? What do you do when the person you care about most in the world doesn’t seem to notice you at all? Will a well-kept secret shatter the foundations of a seven-year friendship? Follow the lives of these friends through their last year at school to the dramatic final battle with Lord Voldemort two decades later.

Warnings are for later chapters, and any sexual situations are very minor.

Chapter Twenty Two: "The Snakes Strike" is in the queue. Excerpt:

Perfume filled his nostrils as Emma walked passed and Rosier’s gaze lingered on her bare, pale legs as the group headed outdoors. “Don’t you just love summer?” he inquired of Regulus, a hungry sneer lighting his face.

“This is ridiculous,” Regulus announced in a furious whisper, “we’re never going to get them alone!”

“Have faith, Black,” commanded Rosier smoothly. “Girls are well renowned for their desire for girly chats. I’m sure they’ll slip off the shackles of their chaperones soon enough.”

Here's your Easter egg! So I jumped to give you an egg because I lovvveee this story. It's in my favorites list and i'm hoping, begging, pleading for you to update!! I like how you don't make the relationship between Sirius/Kristy perfect and oh my gosh, you like me too? I like you! Happily ever after!. Those stories are annoying. And you've made their relationship frustratingly difficult, but it's good. Sirius is a very stubborn person, and Kirsty seems to be too. Anyway, I like your story, keep up the good work!!! And by that i mean, uh...update? hehehe...anyway, good job! :)


Author's Response: Awww! Thank yo so much, Bella! Don't worry chapter 20 is in the queue! Yes, I love causing a bit of frustration and general havoc. As you say, it's a lot more fun than normal happily ever afters :p. Yay! Thank you, this meant a lot :D.

Returning from the Shadows by megan_lupin
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 8]

Summary: Terror, panic, and confusion made up the First War. The Dark Lord and his Death Eaters kept the Wizarding World in a state of darkness and war for over a decade.

But what if Hallowe'en of 1981 hadn't ended it, and the war had continued for years? What if things had happened differently and a family's lives were saved?

(An AU, First War story)

Aww...I don't normally like poetry, but this was really sweet. I'm not a huge fan of Sev/Lily, but after DH, clearly Severus is more sappy/sentimental then we would have thought! This is really sweet, and I think it definitely captures the emotions felt by an unrequited love. I like the repeated line too, it adds some good continuity! Good job! :D


Author's Response: Aw.... Bella you're the greatest! Thanks! <3, Margaret

Hey BB!
I really like this poem! And I'm hard to please, because I really don't like poetry! I like the repeating phrase over and over again, it drives the point home without being overly repetitive.

I also like how you don't find out who it is about until the end, and it was definitely a shock to see that it was Rowena/Salazar. I think it's interesting in a poem, and you should write a story about it!!! but overall, great poem! :)


Author's Response: I'm glad you read and reviewed this, even though you don't like poetry! I suppose this poem has only strengthened your hate for it?
Thanks for the review, Bella!


Beneath the Shell by Afifa
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 13]

Summary: A typical love story: Boy loves girl. Girl loves boy. They end up being a couple. They are happy.

Another story: boy loves girl. But. Girl does not love the boy. No happy couple. So how exactly does the boy feel and what does he do to try to win over his love? Most importantly, does he succeed or does he make a gradual progress or does he even give her reason to hate him more?

Hey Afifa!
So I decided to review this story, because I enjoy reading Marauder-era stories about James/Lily. I think because we don't know EXACTLY how they got together, we can imagine so many different possibilities.
I like how you don't end it with them magically getting together, because I don't think you could fully encompass the way they get together in a one-shot. I think you give us a good insight into James' head, although you made him a little bit melodramatic. I'm not a fan of when James prattles on to Sirius/Remus/Peter about how much he loves her, because although I think he had a huugee crush on her, he couldn't truly love her until they started dating. But that's just my personal opinion on love haha.
Overall, it's a lovely one-shot. Keep up the good work! =)

Author's Response: Bella! :D

Yeah... I love MWPP fics, too, in case you hadn't all ready guessed. :p

Oh, right. I never looked at it that way. But interesting opinion.

Thank you so much for the review. :D
