I'm Cassandra (Sandy, Sandra) and I'm a very very ditzy Australian with horrid spelling. I'm 16 at the moment and yeah....

The name Black-Sand comes from, well yes Sirius and me Sandy, but it also comes from Egypt, which I LOVE!!! In Ancient Egypt when ever the Nile flooded it left black sand on the bank.... I also love history.

In The Midst of Nothingness by wilfen07
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 10]

Summary:

It has been six years since the final war against Voldemort. Harry has now joined the Ministry of Magic as an Alpha, an elite class of Ministry employees who work to thwart the traces of the Dark Arts that Voldemort and his followers may have left behind.

 

In general, Harry now has everything that an adult wizard can hope for – a great job at the Ministry, power, influence, and a most affluent lifestyle. However, all is not well.

 

Everything has changed since the war. Ron is now in Egypt, working with Bill, and Hermione is no longer in touch with Harry or Ron. How has the inseparable trio finally been separated?

Thanks to all my betas, bling_baby, Bookofsecrets & Colores for helping me put up my first chapter. Mostly to the last two who were patient enough to put up with all my eccentricities.

This is my very first fic on the archives. So please guys, I can use some descriptive reviews. XD

G'day

I READ IT! STOP MAKING ME FEEL GUILTY!

I loved the description. The last paragraph is my favourite and no not because it was the last one! XD.

LOL, at first I thought Harry had forgotten Aarons birthday. I laughed when I realized it was his own.

Oh, and I should tell you. I have this wonderful beta and she writes the best story's. Have you read it? I have! LOL

Update soon.

Author's Response: Thank you very much for liking my story. I'm hoping to put up chapter 2 soon. Its just that RL is simply out of hand right now.

 

The Truth Behind the Hatred by mudbloodproud
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 11]

Summary: Severus Snape always hated Neville Longbottom. He treated him as bad if not worse than he treated Harry Potter.

Neville Longbottom has been teaching at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry for fifteen years. Over the course of time, he has come in contact with the portrait of Severus Snape in the Headmistress’ office on several occasions.

It seemed dying had not lessened Snape’s hatred of Neville at all. What happens one day when Neville is asked to come to the Headmistress’ office and alone in the office, confronts Snape over his treatment of him? Will Neville finally learn the truth?

G'day, Tezz-a,

I saw you only had three reviews and I thought your story needed more!

I liked how Neville walked up to Snape's painting, I was like "Ahh, Nevvy's all grown up! So proud." LOL. When Snape said why, I felt really sorry for him. I could just imagine him tormenting Nev for that reason... and come to think of it, that was probably the reason.

Poor Snape... *slaps self* Can't believe you got me to say that! Damn, you are good.

After the Agony by Astrid Skywalker
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 5]

Summary: Decades after Harry Potter’s death, a new political order emerges—one even more powerful and influential than Voldemort and his Death Eaters had ever been. The English Magical Alliance, a powerful division of the Wizengamot with fascist tendencies, takes hold of the Ministry in a mostly non-violent revolution. England is then plunged under strict authoritarian rule, where wizards are forbidden from associating with Muggles, public transport is closely monitored, and political dissidents are sent to Azkaban to be tortured and killed.

26-year-old Catherine Thomas is a graduate student at The Conservatory, a post-Hogwarts institution founded by Rowena Ravenclaw herself, interning as an assistant to the History of Magic professor at Hogwarts. A professor in training and a historian at heart, she prides herself on being an advocate of accuracy and the preservation of historical fact. But when the Party instructs her to rewrite Harry Potter’s biography and tailor it to the Party’s ideals, she sees the opportunity of a lifetime: a window to success and a chance to advance within the Ministry. Suddenly she is thrust into a world full of lies and political strife—where choice is the ultimate weapon and integrity is most in danger of disappearing. Will she be able to follow through with her loyalty to the Party, or will her innate desire for the truth urge her to write Harry’s story as it is?

G'day

Firstly, your story is very imaginative. It seems to be a great original story and I have never read anything like it.

Your discriptrion is very indepth and must be appaured. Especially in the first chapter, of the room they were in. Anyone would have no trouble at all to imagine it. And yet you didn't go so indepth that it became boring.

The only think I could really find to mention improvement over is: the first paragraph in the second chapter is slightly confusing. Perhaps you should read your work out loud so that it makes perfect sense. Your line about Peeves seemed as though it was unfinished and she did one of the lines at the end of the chapter about Mrs Thomas' critisism. It really read as though there was suppost to be more on the line.

Over all I really liked it and I normally don't read story's in Alternate Universe catergory, only ones with warnings of it. But I found this not enjoyable and will read the next chapter when it is up.
