The Exception

In the queue!

Everybody that gets hit by the torture curse, suffers. That is everyone, except Surrey. Surrey Kitchings can be hit by any spell and not be affected by it. To her, it's as natural as breathing. She doesn't realize what a gift it is -- or a curse. Both the Ministry of Magic and You-Know-Who are after Surrey. Surely, she'd be the perfect assasin, untouchable and all. Poor girl, she's only sixteen. She should only be worried about blokes and zits. Not choosing between good and evil, when both sides threaten her and offer her rewards beyhond her wildest dreams.

I love your writing style. Everything flows very nicely.

Good job!

Author's Response: Thanks so much. I really don\'t think that the first chapter is very well written (it was kinda a while ago now, and I hope I\'ve improved). But still, I\'m not complaining if you like it!


Monochrome by Elmindreda
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 11]

Summary: Black and white. Two perfect colors to form a perfect world. Or at least, so has he thought for almost twenty-two years. One color would always intrude... one way or another.

This is incredibly sad.

I would just like to comment on the fact that is incredibly perfect. I love how you use monochrome as a means for describing how he views the world. The way you use symbolism with the colors is refreshing. Its not so common to find a piece of fan fiction having all the elements a work of Poe would have.

You have to keep writing! You probably get this alot, but you are a marvelous writer.

Author's Response: I am deeply honored by your praise. I think this is the first time my writing was said to evoke associations with any famous author. *blush*

Thank you very much. As far as writing goes, I hope to follow in the footsteps of Robert Jordan, who said he intends to keep writing \'until they nail shut his coffin\'. And so he did.

I read this awhile ago and find myself keep coming back to it from to time to time.

I'm not one to reread fanfiction (mostly because my computer is so slow! I mean, really, it takes a half-hour to load the MNFF main site! /end rant. sorry not the time or place) but I really liked this a lot. Its not only the accurate portayl of a real school, its just the sheer (and this is going to sound really corny) magic of it.

Jenna needs some place better. Her parents tried to send her to Lancaster, but she wasn't old enough yet and they needed the money for her brother's graduate academy. He wants to be a Healer, and their father always wanted his son to succeed.

Poor Jenna! Its sad how she falls second to her brother. I imagined a whole back-story on this. I love how you use suggestion to get the readers mind working.

"Mr. Teacher." Words cannot describe how I adore the simply anonymity of it. Honestly, no one remembers teachers in the abstract. You remember someone because they make an impression on you - and most teachers don't. I love the symbolism in that - how high school is impersonal and to be treated with a certain amount of apathy.

"Daddy sends her to this nice school so she can learn to be a proper witch. Daddy only does the best for her. "

This is a mantra it feels like Jamie repeats a lot to herself. It makes me wonder what her Daddy does to her, if anything. Why would he care if her locker was messy?

Jamie closes her eyes and dreams a little, picturing herself the queen of the stage, a Veela. A beautiful enchantress, like her mother. A star.

How horrible! It must be terrible to grow up in your mother's shadow. I feel so bad for Jamie! I just want to give her a hug.

Well, I just want to thank you for writing a story I truly enjoy and will continue to enjoy 'till I stop reading (which is not likely haha).



Don't Apologise by cassie123
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 19]

Andromeda Black wants desperately to take control of her life, but she has never been given the motivation to do so... until now.

‘You won’t have to marry him,’ Ted said surely. ‘Not after this, I can’t let it happen. If it comes down to it, I’ll marry you before he gets the chance.’

Note: the non-consensual sex warning is for a minor part and the act is prevented.

I really enjoyed this! You have created a whole, wonderful world in only a couple thousand words. The detail in this story is incredible; it's just short of being overwhelming. I feel like I was transported to Scotland.

Wow, I really enjoyed this story. It's so cute!

Please write more stories! I like your writing style. I am now going to be annoying fangirl. Pretty please? =)

Vampire - Ghost Child! by Equinox Chick
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 26]

Summary: Rosalburga Aphrodite Black is no ordinary Hogwarts student. First - she's American. Second - she's only just discovered she's a witch. Third - her mother is a Vampire. Fourth - her father is Sex!God Sirius Black.

Things are about to get very exciting for the new R.A.B.

This is a tale of high dram and passion. This is a tale of extreme cliche's. This is a tale that may never be seen again.

lol This was so funny! Care to update, please?

Tiny nitpick - Vampire have eyes that are red, black, or golden. Or if their new 'vegitarians' (i spelled that wrong) they would have auburn eyes. Rosalie, therefore, couldn't have had blue eyes. *don't hurt me*

I really enjoyed your fic!

Author's Response: Oh yeah.... Ha ha. I'd completely forgotten their eye colour... will go and change now. That's not good is it? I mean their eye colour is kinda important. Thank you so much for reviewing. Hmm, updates... well you never know. Carole xxx

This was so sad! I can feel Narcissa's worry for her son, Draco's sadness, and the ominity of Scorpius playing.

I am so proud of you for writing this. This must have been hard, and brought back painful memories, but you used the tough stuff to make your story better.

I wish the best to you and your family!

Author's Response: Thank you very much for your review and condolence. It was difficult for me to write, but also a wonderful story to write. I know my grandmother would be proud.
