I'm always starting new stories, despite the fact that I still have four, unfinished, full-length stories on this database. The plot-bunnies just never stop jumping!
Expected Title: EverAfter.
Characters: Draco Malfoy, Hermione Granger and others.
Category: Romance/Dramione [My first! Hope it works out.]
Inspired by: The Family Man [Movie].
As Lily looked at his worn face, the scar running down his cheek and deep circles underneath his eyes, she knew that he hadn’t said what he had wanted to at all. And somehow — somehow — she knew he never would.
That was my favorite line... deleted in the last review for reasons I cannot fathom. Anyway, good job again!
Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked that line! And thanks again! ;)
I'm in stitches from laughing so hard. A great story, well-written through and through. I would have preferred Draco admitting defeat in the end (or at least, not getting the girl) since I'm not much of a Draco/Hermione fan, but... hey, a reader must tolerate. :) Very imaginative, and I especially liked the fact that Malfoy always addresses Hermione as "Granger". :) Once again, kudos to you!
A really sad, swift-paced story. It's horrible, but oddly understandable. Poor Harry... he can't save everyone. A job well done! An emotional rollercoaster! 10/10
Author's Response: Thank you so much! It\'s a very real piece I think. I made Harry painstakingly human. Not everyone can always be saved no matter how much we want them to be. Thanks again!
Oh, no. Oh, no, no, no. That was so sad. :( Excellently written. You didn't make it overemotional, and I think that's what makes it so sad. Good job!
Author's Response: Awwww, thanks! That makes me really happy. ;)
Well... :D It made me laugh for sure. I'd rather Harry stay single though. *nods wisely* :p A good bit of poetry. :)
Author's Response: Why? Anyways, thanks for reading!
Great job! A really good piece of writing, in my opinion (though I know it doesn't count for much :D).
Luna looked at Harry, smiling desperately, waiting for him to say “I heard them too. You’re not the only one, I heard them too.” Was she the only one who could hear them?
Luna was perfectly in character and it was really wonderful to see the bit of her that actually supposes that the people who tease her are right and that she is Loony.
I'm glad you had her begin to overcome her grief. Nice job again!
Author's Response: Thanks heaps, it\'s my first story, so I hope I can get more positive feedback. :D
Oh my....! I can't believe Kingsley threw that turnip! Hilarious fic, I'm in stitches!
Author's Response: I guess you have to be a really bad singer to get a turnip thrown at your head. Thanks!
This is a really amazing story - I can't exactly say why. It was terribly sad - and sweet and happy and cute as well. Andromeda has been portrayed differently than I imagined her and seemed well characterized, so good job on that. One line in particular that I liked:
Andromeda sees Harry giving Ginny that same soft look, the she’ll-be-a-good-mother look, a rarer thing to see, in a man. Oh yes, Andromeda knows where this is going. Molly must already be making guest lists.
That's not one line, but you know what I mean. It was soo sweet and funny and I can just imagine Molly making guest lists before Ginny and harry have even said anything! :D And last but not least, I'm glad Draco was in here - snotty as usual, but at least he made an effort to do something! I hope Andromeda forgives her sister - Narcissa was right, she does have a family if she's willing to take them. Excellent job again!
Author's Response: Thanks, Amel, for those kind words. I had a really clear picture of Andromeda in my head even before DH, and that\'s the character I used here. Who knows whether Molly\'s really making guest lists? The point is that Andromeda thinks she could, thinks that things have already advanced to the point where these two are essentially betrothed. Draco might not be as snotty as you might think; consider who first used the line \"babysit the cubs\" in his presence, and how it was intended at the time. Thanks again, ~Ken
Wonderful! I really enjoyed this - it was very touching. I sort of wish Harry had taken Ron and Hermione as well, because technically, everyone owes something to Snape. Not one of them trusted him, despite what Dumbledore said. Anyway, good job, again!
Author's Response: Thank you for the review.
I didn\'t include Ron and Hermione because they didn\'t owe Severus the way Harry and Draco did. They also didn\'t share the same kind of connection. From the moment Harry and Draco walked in that school, Severus knew who they were and he was always there for them, in one way or another, rather he was wanted or not. It really wasn\'t the same with Ron and Hermione. Their presense wouldn\'t have meant as much.
And thanks again for leaving a review.
Oh, poor Snape. :( *feels like crying* You shouldn't leave this a one shot - write more! :) 10/10
"You’re such a coward."
I think that was the most moving line in an amazingly, refreshingly, beautiful but terribly sad story. I'm glad Lily kissed him - but maybe it only increased his pain? If Snape had just allowed the good in him to shine, he wouldn't have been left like he was - and I don't think he would have lived like he did, or died like he did.
The other touching part of this story (something I've been looking for for a while) is the fact that you included Snape's love for Dumbledore in here. From DH it is obvious that Snape really, truly loved Dumbledore like a father, or a brother.
Thank you for a great story!
It's terribly sad that fear of his family is what made Snape choose Slytherin over Gryffindor, here. I can see the fear of anger influencing his decision, but Snape never really liked Gryffindor anyway, did he? I wonder how things would have turned out if he had allowed the Sorting Hat to send him to Slytherin - would there even BE a Harry Potter? Anyway, this is a really nice, thought-provoking (as you've seen from my ramblings) story. I like that it's not too long - short and sweet does the job. A good piece of writing, and perfectly in-character. 10/10
Author's Response: Thanks very much, yours is the most detailed review I\'ve gotten on this site so far. Thanks for taking the time. :)
Excellent idea, excellent writing! It's so sad that so many of the people in the picture died so soon after the picture was taken... I think the way everyone's so happy here makes the moment in OotP even sadder. Great job!
Author's Response: I know. I both loved and hated writing this. Because the characters were all so NICE! And thinking about what happened to them is just horrible. Still, I\'m glad it seems to be a success! Thanks for reviewing!
Good start - erm, I don't see why it's in humor though... seemed sort of sad to me. :)
Author's Response: Thanks for pointing that out...I meant to put it under General, but they\'re right next to each other. It\'ll be kind of all genres, like sometimes funny, sometimes sad, sometimes happy, etc. Thanks for the review too. My first one was a good one. :)
*wants to scream* I love Severus but I love James and GAH! I can't ever figure out which fics I like better - James/ Lily or fics where Lily is nice (nice, but not TOO chummy) with Sev. This is a great story, and prefectly balances each. 10/10
Oh, sad, really sad, but I love Lily and James and I want them to be together - but Severus is so amazing too! Conflicting feelings here, honestly! Wonderful job, really well put-together!
Ooo, nice story, most definitely. I liked the characterisation of Eileen, though she didn't seem very Slytherin to me. But not ever Slytherin will fit into the mold... a quote I enjoyed:
“Yer’ sis’ got married?” he asked in a scratchy voice.
Why? Becuase I've always imagined Severus's father to be very... sophisticated... clear, trim, perfect language... etc. :D Great job again!
Ha! The ending with the trio was the best part - that was a really great story, really funny. I think she should have washed his hair nine times though. And "jet black and uncontronablly untidy"? Lol, why would he want to look like Harry? :p Yay for you! Good job!
Author's Response: Thank you! I thought that he would appalled to have the same tyoe of hair as Harry and James so I put that in.
Author's Response: *type. (Man, I wish we could edit reviews/respones!)
Author's Response: *responses. (heh,heh)
Sweet and enjoyable! A really warm, happy, funny fic - I loved Rose and Hugo and Ron saying Harry might call him with an international incident - that was hysterical. :p 10/10
Excellent. :) Made me laugh (and I needed it).
