Tales of the Battle by Northumbrian

Rated: 6th-7th Years •
Over fifty people died at the Battle of Hogwarts. There are dozens of stories of loss, betrayal, heroism and sacrifice. These are some of those stories.

Nominated for: Best General (Chaptered) story – Quicksilver Quills 2011

Reviewer: minervassister Signed
Date: 03/31/11 Title: Chapter 25: Index

This chapters completes a very fine achievement.
Unlike Peeves you have given us a true "feeling for the scope and the tragedy of the thing".
Thank you and very well done.

Author's Response:
Thanks, and thanks for all of your reviews.

Peeves assessment was rather more short and to the point, wasnt it? :-)

Another great chapter, liked the way that you gave some virtues to these characters. Loyalty, courage and love are not solely owned by the good side in your stories. Your characters are rounded and believable.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Millicent thinks that Miles is "almost as slippery as Malfoy" but I'm sure that her love and loyalty is true. Why shouldn't it be? -N-

Another great chapter, you are adding layer upon layer to the story and all so authentic.
You are really achieving something special here.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I was definitely unsure how something like this would be recieved. It isn't getting the reads that my one shots and H/G stories get, but it's an interesting experiment. Though the next chapter is the most experimental. -N-

Thank you for another great chapter.
It really feels like a true interpretation of the Malfoy family.
I like the ambiguity, is Narcissa guiding them into a better life or will they remain self-seeking and dangerous.
Perhaps Amdromeda will help her sister to adapt to the new world post battle.

Author's Response:
Thanks for the review.
Only two more chapters! The end is in sight. The Malfoy's were still trying to ingratiate themselves with Voldemort even during the battle. That's why Draco went to the Room of Requirement. I tried to keep Narcissa's words neutral, specially her words about Andromeda. "Whether or not I believe it is immaterial, Draco." She thinks it's the best course, but I wanted the question to remain.

Another great chapter.
It just sounded so right.
Very apt names, especially liked Furry-face.
Don't want this story to end, it is so good.

Author's Response: Thank you. This chapter is my most experimental, in both subject and perspective. There are two more chapters completed, and two more in draft, but Im not happy with either of them. -N-

That was very moving Neil.
Your writing just gets better and better.

Author's Response: Thank you. These stories all experiment with perspectives and methods. While most are first-person some, like this one, push the perspective. Im glad that you liked it. -N-

Tattered Photograph by Writ Encore

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: This is a collection of one-shots from the views of a handful of members of the Order of the Phoenix.

Thanks to Elene/ CoolCatElly for her help on this one. This one is for the beautiful Padfoot Patronus, who inspired me to work beside the glow of my midnight taper.

Enjoyed this, Aberforth is one of my favourite minor characters.
You brought him to life well.
Look forward to hearing more about the Order.

Author's Response: Oh, well, thank you. I'm sorry that I have yet to respond to this, but I just now stumbled on the review. I enjoy Aberforth as well. He is the reason I enjoy DH. Honestly, this made my day. You have no idea. You are the coolest person in my world today. I'm really glad you enjoyed the piece.

A Canticle for Bellatrix by L A Moody

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
A Dark Comedy in Three Acts

After being hit squarely in the chest by Molly Weasley at the end of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Bellatrix Lestrange wakes up lost and bewildered. A victim of the little-understood Bebitched Curse, she is transported through space and time to the ultimate gated community in a sunny climate. The people around her seem to possess an uncanny knowledge of the world she left behind, but none of them can work magic. Worst of all, she herself seems to be turning into a Squib. As she struggles to find her place among the very people she most despises, Bella slowly realizes that a land which reveres the magical world learns to work it own brand of magic.

Come join Bella in her voyage of self-discovery and social commentary. The Muggle world may never be the same.

Really enjoyed this story, well done in getting such a lot of humour from a character that takes herself very seriously.

Author's Response: No doubt about it: Bellas quite full of herself. Her cockeyed view of everything compounded with her outspokenness was just made for comedy. And shes self-centered enough to bask in the attention her outrageous comments receive. You just know she would be great fun at a party as long as she checked her wand at the door, that is!

Swimsuit Quidditch by Northumbrian

Rated: 6th-7th Years •
It is Ginny’s twentieth birthday, and she wants to play a game with Harry.

Reviewer: minervassister Signed
Date: 01/19/11 Title: Chapter 1: Swimsuit Quidditch

Wow! This takes Quidditch related humour into a completely new league.
Could have been written by Fred and George!
Well done.

Author's Response: Thanks, after a lot of battle tales, conflict and combat I needed to write something like this. I'm just glad that some people find it funny. -N-

The Girl from DRaCo MC by Northumbrian

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: Office work is, in the main, boring and monotonous. But sometimes something unexpected happens.
Reviewer: minervassister Signed
Date: 02/19/11 Title: Chapter 1: The Girl from DRaCo MC

Poor Hermione just when we thought she was safe.
Loved the acronym, well spotted!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Hermione will be safe so long as she has Ron (and Harry and Ginny). -N-

Strangers at Drakeshaugh by Northumbrian

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
The locals in a sleepy corner of the Cheviot Hills are surprised to discover that they have new neighbours.

Who are the strangers at Drakeshaugh?

Another great chapter, I’ve been in the Coquet valley a couple of times and would love to see it again.

Drakeshaugh sounds like a wonderful house. I'd like to move in tomorrow.
Mary doesn't know what's going to hit her!
Looking forward to the next chapter.

Author's Response:
Thanks for the review.
I like Drakeshaugh too, although the lack of electricity would be a problem.
Poor Mary. :-D

Great start to a new and unusual story.
Why are the Potters living in Coquetdale?
(It's a lovely place, I've been there on holiday.)
Looking forward to seeing how the story unfolds.
Like the Charlton joke!

Author's Response:
Thanks for the review.

Coquetdale because I wanted to use a remote area of England, and this one is handy (for me). It is a lovely place. Next: more Jacqui, no Ginny, but lots of Harry.

I called my narrator Jacqui then looked for a Reiver surname. I wrote this chapter (and most of the next) before I realised that she was Jacqui Charlton. I considered changing it (to Chisholm) but the name was already in my head, so I gave her the joke line instead. Her maiden name was Wake (is that important?).

Another great chapter, can't wait to see how the party turns out.

Author's Response: Thanks. As I’ve said, the party is a few chapters away. Next, Jacqui meets the Weasleys. -N-

Bats!! A woman with ice cold hands? Vampires?
Another great chapter.
Thanks again.

Camelia Tepes - she's in "The Hufflepuff" and other stories, too.
More, soon.

The Weasleys were all spot on you do this so well.
Loved the "galleons" being mixed up with sailors.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Jacqui continues to attempt to make some sort of sense out of nonsensical statements. :-D -N-

Luna is a joy, lucky Lily to have her as a godmother.
You describe family life so well.
Looking forward to the next chapter.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review, I hope that the next chapter won’t take so long. -N-

This story just gets better and better.
Luna is always a pleasure. She says all the things we'd love to.
It's great to see Harry happy and enjoying life.

Author's Response: Thank you. :-D
She is and sshe does.
Harry's happiness won't last much longer.

More very soon. She’s called Cecilia, does that help?’
