Hunters and Prey by Northumbrian
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 191]

Summary:
February 2000 Newly Qualified (in record time) Auror Harry Potter remains obsessed with “The List.” The ten people still wanted for their part in the Battle of Hogwarts. Their capture is essential. It will bring closure to the events of the past few years. Harry has set himself a target. He wants to see “The Last Death Eater” and the other nine captured before the second Anniversary of the battle. His attempts to meet his target will bring heartbreak, danger, pain, and a lifechanging injury for one former DA member.

Nominated for: Best Post-Hogwarts (Chaptered) story - Quicksilver Quills 2012

Date: 05/30/12 Title: Chapter 12: The Snare: Legal Lizard

So glad to see Ginny gettibg back to her normal, lovely self.
Tavistock is a nasty piece of work, is he on the dark side or just working for the Harpies?
Looking forward to getting back to the werewolf villlage to find out what happens there.
Keep up the good work!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
Me, too!
Tavistock certainly has a different agenda to Harry.
What happens? Full moon, blood, torture, shirtless Harry, Lavender in her underwear, and a Harry/Lavender kiss (That statement is guaranteed 100% correct :-D).
Mischievously yours, -N-

This just gets better and better!
Great to see Lavender getting nearer to a cure for her wounds.
Dacia and her girls are good additions to your ever growing interconnected cast of characters.
They all fit in so well.

Author's Response: Thank you.
Lavender's "cure" is pretty drastic, and as you know, it will take a few years bofore things work out for her.
Auror Amber Skoll has already made on appearance in "Strangers" and she'll be back.
So far my future for Harry and co is holding together. :-)

Oh dear what has brought Ginny to this?
Hope we find out in the next chapter.
Keep up the good work.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
You won't find out in the next chapter (sorry) because we rejoin Harry on his journey to find the werewolf village.
You will, however, get a few more clues.

Gosh further complications, is Linny not a baddie after all?
Great work as always.

Author's Response: Now that's a very good question. More answers in the next chapter which, in the traditions of this story, does not actually follow directly from this one. -N-

 
Reviewer: minervassister Signed
Date: 01/04/14 Title: Chapter 21: Finale: Friends and Foes

Great end to the story and nice to see Terry and Fenella getting together.
Looking forward to the follow up, there are still some nasties out there to be rounded up.

Author's Response: Thanks
I knew that Lavender and Mark were doomed (for the moment) so Terry and Fenella were the alternative. :-D Expect the sequel soon.

Date: 01/05/12 Title: Chapter 7: The Hunt: Den of Wolves

Another great chapter, wonderful descriptions of the forest and landscape, it felt so wet.
Poor Harry what will happen now?
Poor Ginny will we hear soon why she is behaving so badly?

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
Wet is a reasonable description of the Cheviots in March (in my not so recent experience).
Next - The Foolish Pride of Lions featuring Harry, Ron, Hermione and Neville. More answers, and more questions.

Date: 12/10/11 Title: Chapter 5: The Hunt: Nice Weather for Fish

Oh what a place to stop!
Love the way your characters keep cropping up - Jackie's parents running a B&B.
What is Ginny up to?
Looking forward to the next chapter.

Author's Response: And the thing with the way I'm wriring this is that you won't get any answers until the chapter after next!
There will be an appearrance by another character from "Strangers" soon.
Good question. ;-D
She's in the gaol-house now.

Wow!!
That chapter had everything, scary, touching, Harry in danger, some very nasty old enemies turning up and then a terrifying ending.
More, more please!

Author's Response: Thanks.
I've just submitted the next chapter of Strangers, but once that's approved, the next chapter of this is ready to go.

Date: 03/23/13 Title: Chapter 17: Prey: Lioness Snarls, Badger Baited

That was a tour de force, another wonderful chapter.
Phoenix patronuses, dementor spit, dark magic what more can you ask for in a story and Harry and Ginny friends again.
Keep up the good work.

Author's Response:
Thanks, there was certainly a lot happening.
Only a couple of chapters left (unless it's ends up being three). More soon, I hope.

What Luna Sees by Northumbrian
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 15]

Summary: Does Ginny have a serious rival?
Who is the most fancied bloke in the DA?
What Lunacies happen at Christmas?
This is Northumbrian of Ravenclaw House realising that this long planned story scrapes into prompt 3 (Operation Mistletoe) of the Great Hall-iday challenge, and that my story title is an even worse pun than the challenge title.

Lovely, so Luna!
Of course Nev is everyone's favourite, thanks for a bit of pre-Christmas cheer.

Of course he is, and you're welcome.

Summary: Past Featured StoryYuletide: ‘tis the season to be jolly! Unfortunately, for four and two-thirds Potters, jolliness is in short supply. Perhaps it is the season of:
Monkeys; fish and chip suppers; shopping in Knockturn Alley; a werewolf wearing glitter lipstick; a Moon in an eccentric orbit; Dung; snow; and a jolly fat man with a white beard.
Hopefully everything will work out.
Consumer Warning: Like many Christmas gifts, this may contain nuts/nut traces.
No Father Christmases were harmed during the writing of this story.

A great Christmas treat!
I want to visit Side Way!
Edinburgh is my birth place so loved the descriptions.
If they had gone this week they could have seen the Pandas!

Author's Response: Thanks.
So do I!
Edinburgh is my closest capital city (London is three times the distance).
There were no pandas in 2007 :-D

Lovely!
Ron's right I do like a happy ending too.
Draco was so in character, not a happy ferret.

Great story, Ginny and Harry spot on, good to see their relationship develop through your different stories.
Love the grandparents, such a creative idea.
Have two possible candidates for heir will have to wait and see.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
Most of my recent H/G stories have been "Harry and Ginny Potter - parents of young children" and it was a lot of fun to return to their teenage snogging days :-D
The idea for the Potter grandparents came to me in a flash, and I thought, surely someone has done this before. It may be original, but in fanfic, I doubt it.
You'll find out soon.

Super idea for a story, would love to hear George's bestman speach.

Author's Response: Thanks fr the review.

Vituperation by Northumbrian

Summary:
Villains? Voldemort's virulent verbiage preaches vigorous vendetta against those inferior. Are these two M's merely victims, or are they venal violators of the innocent. Is violence in vain?

Marcus and Millicent make their mark on Muggles, and each other.

My final Cotillion tale.

Date: 06/07/12 Title: Chapter 1: York

How could any future parent-in-law not love Mark?
This is another great chapter.
The English Tourist board should sponsor you the way you describe Rye it sounds a lovely place to visit.
the dreich rain is spot on too!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
You'll find out how Mark survives his day in the third and final chapter.
Rye is a beautiful little town, and that's from someone who doesn't like the south coast much.
Dreich, I'm told, is probably a Scandinavian word, but a lot of northern slang is.
