What are "they" and no where does it say that it is the best. Sorry, perhaps you posted in the wrong series.

 

The Second War by HPotter7
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 84]

Summary: With the ever-growing threat of Lord Voldemort and secrets of the past that could tear Harry apart, Harry’s six year will be like no other. More attacks on muggles and wizards then ever before as Voldemort gains back the power he once had. Harry will make a decision that will change not only his life, but also everyone’s around him. He will have to choose between what is right and what is easy...

I've finally updated! Now that it's finally summer I'll have more time to write! I've submitted my new chapter and I hope it will be out soon. I really need a beta because I can't get a hold of my last one, so feel free to volunteer!

This story was written Pre-HBP so it's my own storyline!

Nice descriptions. You-Know-Who at the Dursleys, interesting. I like how you conveyed the fact that Harry didn't care about the opinions of the other residents on Privet Drive. Good Job!

You're right, things have been really slow on here...especially over at my fic!!

Author's Response: I know... It's slow for all of us. Hang in there!

This is really nice. It follows closely with the compassionate Dumbledore that we know from the books. I've never read a "one-shot" fic before, but this is good... I like it

Author's Response: Thakns for reviewing! Things have been so awfully slow on here, haven't they?

I like the descriptions. A couple of typos in there, but overall good. You've also captured the ruthlessness of the "Snake man." Looks good. P.S. Check out my fic! (Sorry for the shameless plug)

Author's Response: Thanks a bunch Alex, I'll try to get 'round to review and red the rest of your fic, read the first chappie, sounds promising.

 

Dancing in the Snow by HermioneDancr

For my first foray into the One-shot world I very much enjoyed this fic. It was story that just felt good. Everything about this was spot on. I loved the bits about Luna and adding her feelings about touching ghosts. I think the pairing between Luna and Myrtle is a great idea anyway. They seem so very compatible in the way JK characterizes them and you do a great job of bringing them together in his shot.


The best part is it's a look at past events through someone else's eyes. I like to hear other's ideas about minor characters during other times. So much is focused on Harry that there is a lot of potential in the other students. It gives the reality that the others live their own lives, too, apart from what we see.

Author's Response: I\'m glad you enjoyed this, especially as it was your first oneshot. I have to say I enjoy the challenge of writing stories set either before or during the HP books and trying to make them fit believably with canon. It\'s like making a puzzle piece to fit in with a puzzle that already exists... both easier and harder than writing something totally separate/in the future.

 

Snape's Folly by Dumbledore Prince
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 18]

Summary: Post-HBP one-shot. Only two days after Dumbledore’s murder, Severus Snape is sitting in Number Thirteen, Spinner’s End. He is thinking about what he has done, and what rewards he has got. Little does Snape know about the vicious trap he has walked into, and the price he has to pay in return …

Wow, that was really powerful stuff there. It's a reversion of Snape to his former self as a death eater and it is quite shocking to see what he is capable of, especially after seeing the death of his mother and being betrayed at the same time.

I love the irony in that, while double crossing You-Know-Who, he himself is double crossed. Great descriptions and I like that fact that Snape leaves with a just conscience offering advice to Draco. It goes right along with the recurring theme in the HP series of everyone having choices.


The only thing I could see is in one sentence, "They were in a dark street, which had a single lamppost on the other end of the street," you use "street" twice in the same sentence. I'm sure you could easily change that to something like "road" to prevent repetition. Other than that, a great one-shot and very nice ties to Snape's character and his past.

Author's Response: Thanks for the detailed review. Detailed reviews cheer me up a lot. Just so that you know, I hate Snape. I\'ll try to tweak that sentence a bit. Thanks for pointing it out!

I must say, Professor Meron is a very intriguing character. I especially liked the passage: “And you will all have formed your own prejudices, thought processes, likes, dislikes, talents, friendships, enemies, hobbies, habits, respects, disrespects, ideas about life, ideas about death, and so forth. Therefore, I will not try to win anybody’s favor in this class.” Such is true about the age of sixteen. It’s a time were many kids claim to know who and what they are, it appears that Professor Meron knows his fair share about people. I hope we get a glance at his backstory.


Something minor:“…the headline, which screamed: “Five wizards found brutally murdered in muggle neighborhood”. If it’s a headline, that should be capitalized “Five Wizards Found Brutally Murdered in Muggle Neighborhood.

I also liked the way you characterized Harry and Ron asking Hermione for answers in Astronomy well done. I notice that you mentioned you have more chapters to come in this fic, I hope they are posted soon!

Author's Response: There are a couple more chapters coming. I may or may not finish it, as I\'ve decided to rewrite it in a different way. We shall see!

Interesting start losing a Quidditch match. I like what you have so far and I hope you reveal some of the US team's first names, because I'm a real stickler for names, but the surnames you have now are great.

A little mistake, "finally, there seeker and team captain, Jonathon" That "there" should be "their".

I see this story takes place in '06, but will there be any mention of US Quidditch Legend, Maximus Brankovitch III? Just wondering for canon's sake.

I'm interested to see how far you explore the US Wizarding world. I have a fic on in the US, myself, so I'm always looking for others who choose to write in America. So far, good job and I'll be keeping an eye our for chapter two.

Author's Response: Thanks for your comments. I missed that there/their thing, I\'ll be sure to fix that. I actually had no clue about Maximus Brankovich the 3rd, I\'ll try to incorporate him in somewhere.

 

Last Letter by whittyleah
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 22]

Summary: Alia is to be put to death for treason against the Dark Lord. She is alone, awaiting her fate. She could despair over her misfortune, but instead she writes a letter, her last letter.

Very touching. Very, very touching. I'm never fond of Harry dying and not defeating You-Know-Who, but that position opened up for this short tale to present the reader something intriguing. I like how you develop a connection with Charlie Weasley so we don't feel as though we're completely unattached from the character of Alia.

I also greatly enjoyed the call to action this letter presents. I'm sure the others in the Wizarding world would definitely heed her words, and it would even be interesting to see a follow-up with someone who reads the letter and takes her advice.

Overall, great one-shot. It's amazing what some people can do in just a little over 1,000 words.

Author's Response: WOW! Thank you. That was the best review I have ever gotten! Thank you, for your kind words!

 

Hero by Lil Red
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 24]

Summary: Have you ever really thought about what a hero might be? Is it the one who is always saving the world, gets the girl, and always comes out victorious, or is it something different?



Ginny doesn't want to believe she's wrong. She just doesn't! There's no way Harry, the Boy who Lived, can DIE...is there?



The rating is just being cautious.

Date: 08/01/06 Title: Chapter 1: Hero

There's a certain suspense and gut-wrenchingness that comes with all hospital scenes taking place after the "Final Battle." I of course always want Harry to live, but the most popular decision is for him to snuff it. Regardless, this fic ties greatly with some of the characterizations we've been given.

As always, it's great to see the final interactions between hero and friend and this was no different. I liked Ginny's persistance and even Ron's plea to hang on. I would have loved to read what the Prophet wrote in their headline for the following day, which you might have covered in your sequel, but nonetheless an emotional work you've got here.

Well done.

Author's Response: I tried to think about how each person would react, as they would react the most strongly. So I thoguht about it and attempted to stay in character. No, I didn\'t cover the Prophet in the sequel, as its only about Ginny moving on and all, but that would be interesting to write an article about Harry dying... Thanks for reviewing!
