It's good to get it from his point of view.
Well done!

I like this, sounds just like Arthur.
You've summed up his character very well.

Great story, you go from strength to strength.
Small point, I think new born babies have blue eyes that change to their final colour in a few weeks.

Author's Response: Thanks. Most (not all) ethnic European babies have blue (or grey) eyes. Iím fairly certain that the chance of James being born with brown eyes is about 2% (not much, but itís good enough odds for a work of fiction Ė look at it as being 20,000 times more likely than a million to one chance (-: ). Fred and Roxanneís chance is a LOT higher. -N-

Fred and George's Busy Day by Northumbrian
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 34]

Summary:
WINNER of the BEST GENERAL story – Quicksilver Quills Awards 2010.
In the weeks and months after their eldest brother’s wedding Fred and George Weasley continued to run their business. Two decent honest and respectable businessmen, they had no involvement at all in any illicit conduct. They certainly didn’t get involved in any anti-Voldemort activities. Definitely not. No. Not them. Never. They wouldn’t. Honestly.

Great a story about Fred and George!
Super start, really draws you in.
Looking forward to the next chapter.

Author's Response: Thank you. This (in case you hadn't guessed) relates events alluded to in the early chapters of Grave Days. -N-

Date: 05/12/10 Title: Chapter 3: Epilogue: A Call to Arms

That was great!! It just sounds so right.
You have the true voice and spirit of the twins.
Thanks for giving Fred the last word.

Author's Response: This was fun (if a little sad) to write. My farewell to Fred fic. Fred got the last word in the epilogue because I gave George the last word in the prologue. N

 

Bare by Northumbrian
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 13]

Summary:
All I ever wanted to do was fit in and be normal. I wanted friends, a nice boy, marriage and kids, the usual stuff. It wasn’t much to hope for.

Fighting a war can leave scars, and you can't always hide them.

This is Northumbrian of Ravenclaw writing for the Madam Pomfrey One-Shot Triathlon - Round Two: Minor Canon Characters, Prompt 1 (encounter with a mythical creature).

Great Story!!
Very well written, as usual from Northumbrian.
Will we get to find out what happens in Whitby?

Author's Response: I have started chapter 2 of this one-shot. Moving the action to Whitby, but Iíve stopped. Iím halfway through one novel length fic (Aurors and Schoolgirls and I have two more part-written. Starting another would be madness. N

 
Reviewer: minervassister Signed
Date: 05/07/10 Title: Chapter 1: Bare

It was me who deleted the spoiler.
You were quite right to point it out.
I'll try to be more careful in future.
Cheers.

Author's Response: Hi Thanks (-: This type of first person pov story always causes me probelms as even something as sinple as the category can give away part of the puzzle (who is the narrator?) to readers. The problem is that a lot of people (me included) like to know what and who they are reading about. I often read reviews first. If the reviewer says (for example): it was a shock when Ginny died at the end that's a fairly major spoiler. But, as a writer, I love to read reviews, even critical ones. I can appreciete how difficult it can be to give feedback without giving plot points away, So thanks, and I hope that my original reply did not offend. (-: N)

Great chapter, good to see Ginny and Harry getting over their problem and seeing Ginny getting something wrong.
Also nice to see Nev and Hannah getting closer.
Keep up the good work!

Author's Response: Iíve seen many stories where Ginny is little miss perfect. She isnít. Hannah and Neville? Neville has a girl so will they, wonít they? N

 
Reviewer: minervassister Signed
Date: 05/16/10 Title: Chapter 1: Quidditch: Rejection, Selection

Great start. Good to see Ginny and Hermoine getting some ordinary school experiences after their ordeals the of previous year.

Author's Response: Thanks Ordinary school experiences, unfortunately, donít make for much of a storyÖ N

That was a great chapter.
Loved Harry referring to Snape as Professor Snape and Minerva saying that Dumbledore would have enjoyed it.
So good to see the House Elves there too.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Calling Snape Professor is a big step forward for Harry. -N-

Ginny is so good for Harry, it's lovely to see them happy.

Great story!!
Enjoyed it as a one shot but this is even better.
Loved the ambiguity at the beginning of the chapter.

Author's Response: Thank you. This chapter was deleted in it's entirety to make the story fit as a one-shot. The last chapter had a decent ending, this is better (I think). The ambiguity at the beginning was deliberate. N

 
Reviewer: minervassister Signed
Date: 06/01/10 Title: Chapter 1: Occlusion

Great to read more about Lavender.
Loved the Edinburgh setting, very authentic.

Author's Response: Thanks This will be the last of my Lavender tales for a while. I may be English, but Edunburgh is about 200 miles closer to me than London (and it's a nicer city). N

 

Summary: Draco Malfoy stood in front of the mirror and studied his reflection closely. Flicking some invisible dust off his shoulder, Draco was satisfied. He knew he looked the part; it was just that the guests didn’t know which part he was playing.

Draco Malfoy is about to get married. The wedding has been planned for months, a union between the class of the Malfoys and the new money of his bride. His parents are delighted.

But Draco, possibly for the first time in his life, is about to defy them.

I am Equinox Chick of Hufflepuff and this is my entry in The Weddings Challenge - category Surprise Wedding - in the Great Hall Challenge.

Thank you so much to Natalie (hestiajones) for beta'ing this story in record time.

I never thought that I'd be happy for Draco but I am now.
Thanks!!

A Fireside Chat by Quillwork1313
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 5]

Summary: Excerpt from chapter 2:

Suddenly, he heard a rustling, cracking noise. His eyes snapped open, and he saw a young man sitting to his right, prodding the fire with a stick. For a moment, he thought it was Ron and he opened his mouth to ask him how he had snuck up on him. But just then, the man turned his head toward him, and it was not Ron.

George jumped up, startled so fiercely that he drew his wand, pointing it at the last of his brothers he had expected to see.

Nicely resolved and, "All done in the best possible taste" as dear old Kenny Everett used to say.

Author's Response: Thanks, this is an editted version, the original was slightly ruder. I'm unlikely to write anything as smutty as this again. -N-

Really enjoying this series showing the battle from lots of points of view.
The characterisation is excellent and in canon as we have come to expect from you.
Thank you for taking the time to write such good stories.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. As the Battle continues you will see: more Original Character stories (there will be four), plus three from the point of Slytherin students. These stories are a lot shorter than most of my stuff, but they provide useful background for these characters in my future history. -N-

 
Reviewer: minervassister Signed
Date: 12/08/10 Title: Chapter 14: Bad Faith

That was inspired!
Never thought I'd feel sorry for Draco.
Very funny, but it all fits in so well with DH and it is so Draco.
Well done yet again.

Author's Response:
Thank you. I've always though that Draco was pitiful. (-: Make the most of the cruel humour. The next few chapters are far from funny. N ps you'll hear the Neville Ginny conversation in full in chapter 21.

 
Reviewer: minervassister Signed
Date: 02/12/11 Title: Chapter 21: Snakeslayer

Another great chapter, you can't see the joins, it could be part of DH.
Lovely to have a whole chapter about Neville.
Still think about him in his bunny slippers in Book 1. Great to see how he has grown.
Liked the references to earlier chapters.
Always a good day when the name Northumbrian appears.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review and the kind words. Neville (and Ron, I believe) did a lot of growing up in DH. Neville is one of my favourite characters and he deserves a lot more love. -N-
