Very very good. I can believe that this happened.

Author's Response: Thanks. I'm glad you liked it and found it believable. I always found Alice's fate in canon to be far too depressing, so that's why I wrote this. Thanks for reading and reviewing.

 

Four Scrolls Of Parchment by ClairesQuill
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 2]

Summary: Where there is black and white, there also must be grey. It is the men and women willing to wallow between right and wrong that have changed history. Do not fear purity and do fear evil; fear never seeing where they overlap, for only there can truth be gleaned.

I liked it. We don't know much about Regelus - but this seems to fit well. And it is very well written and very contemplative.

Author's Response: Thank you, I'm glad you enjoyed it. xx

 

Our Little Secret by Kerichi
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 416]

Summary: Past Featured Story

It was like a wizard tale. The clever Slytherin helps a hag who later repays the debt. Except that Rose Weasley wasn't a hag, and Scorpius didn't expect to call in the favour.

Summary: Past Featured StoryWhen Lavender Brown returns to Hogwarts for her seventh year, she knows things will be hard. Professor Dumbledore’s death has scared everybody, and with her Muggle-born mother in hiding, she makes a promise to her father to stay safe.

But to stay safe she must ignore her instincts and turn her back on her friends.

This is a Lavender Brown/Blaise Zabini story, but also concerns that last year at Hogwarts when the Trio were a'hunting Horcruxes.

Thank you to Laura (bookofsecrets) and Terri (mudbloodproud) for beta'ing the first chapter, Alyssa (Harry4lif) for the second and Emma (Amortentia x) for taking over the reins. And Natalie for the last chapter.

Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling. I doubt that surprises anyone.

This story won the 2010 QSQ for Best Chaptered Non-Canon Romance. Thank you to everyone who nominated, appreciated and judged.

ATTENTION: Because of prissy glitch on the archive, stories with a rating about 3rd-5th cannot be read. I have lowered the rating to enable access, but the content remains the same. This is a PROFESSORS rated fic. Read at your own discretion - the sexual situations warning is there for a reason.

Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 362]

Summary: Past Featured Story“Guilt brings people together. It’s a takes one to know one type thing.”

James Potter has always been a spoiled, arrogant, lazy show-off. When he enters his final year at Hogwarts School, he’s Head Boy . . . and he’s still a spoiled, arrogant, lazy, show-off. But because of that terrible summer, he’s also guilt-ridden.

Lily Evans has always been a self-righteous, impatient, temperamental know-it-all. When she begins her last year at Hogwarts, she’s Head Girl . . . and still a self-righteous, impatient, temperamental know-it-all. But the first night back — and the murder that takes the entire school by surprise — leave her guilt-ridden as well.

With the darkness that’s surrounding the Wizarding world slowly seeping, at long last, onto the grounds of Hogwarts and into the lives of James Potter and Lily Evans, what comes next?

Outstanding! Fabulous story, fabulous end. I love reading your work - it is just like reading Jo. Can't wait for he epilogue. And very glad you didn't chop this in two!

Great story - but then I always love your work. This is exactly how I picture Lily and James. Loved the I Never game and the tipsy Lily. So real.

Author's Response: Thanks very much! I really want to make James and Lily realistic in this story -- it's probably my biggest goal -- so I'm glad you like how I've written them :)

I really liked it - I can so see Ron and Hermione's first date like that. You were really true to their characters - and Ginny too. Most other R/H stories have them doing stuff out of character. Wish you would write more! LIke Harry and Ginny's first date.

Author's Response: Thanks! It's good to know you think I wrote them in character; I think in general they're a harder couple to get spot on. :)

Grave Days by Northumbrian
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 100]

Summary: Front page: THE DAILY PROPHET 4 May 1998

TOM RIDDLE “ THE SELF-STYLED LORD VOLDEMORT

Editors Note: At the request of the Ministry for Magic this Official Statement issued by the Office of the Minister is produced full and unedited.

OFFICIAL MINISTRY STATEMENT

This official statement has been compiled with the assistance and co-operation of Mr Harry Potter.

“Lord Voldemort” was, in fact a man named Tom M. Riddle, son of a witch, Merope Gaunt and a Muggle, Tom Riddle Senior. The Ministry has decided that in all future official publications Riddle will be referred to by his given name.

There has already been much speculation and wild rumour regarding the events at Hogwarts School. The Ministry can confirm that Tom M. Riddle was killed at dawn on the morning of Saturday, 2 May. Riddle was disarmed by Harry Potter while in the act of firing a killing curse at Mr Potter. The curse killed Riddle rather than its intended target.

Continued on page 4

WHERE IS HARRY POTTER?

Despite the Official Ministry Statement (published above) we are no closer to receiving an answer to the question on the lips of every witch and wizard in the country. Where is Harry Potter?

It appears that Mr Potter left Hogwarts School early yesterday morning, apparently in the company of his close associates Hermione Granger and Ronald Weasley. An attractive young Ministry clerk, who did not wish to be named, told The Prophet “He’s at the Ministry, having an important meeting with the Minister. My friends and I saw him. He asked us out to the pub, but we had to turn him down.” This statement is at odds with a report from the Portkey Office that Mr Potter has fled the country, travelling to Australia with his companions.

Continued on page 2

The days after the battle were days of grief and mourning. Grave Days.

Best Harry & Ginny reunion story I have read yet! Love this story - this is great. The characters are in perfect canon.

Author's Response: Thank you. I'm glad that you think so. I think that i have taken a few liberties with Charlie -N-

 

Summary: On May 2nd, 1998, Harry Potter walked calmly into the face of death to save those he loved, bringing with him only his wand, and four people brought back with an extraordinary stone. Unbeknown to him, they had also come on a journey to be with him that night.

Scenes from Shell Cottage by WeasleyMom
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 128]

Summary: This fic is a series of missing moments from the time H/R&H were at Shell Cottage, beginning immediately after they Disapparated from Malfoy Manor. JKR shows us what was going on with Harry, but this is my version of what could have happened with Ron and Hermione after one of the most emotional/disturbing events in the entire series.

UPDATED June 2010 When I first wrote this fic, I didn't know what a beta reader was, and frankly, it showed. Thanks so much to Natalie for helping me polish this up and make it more readable. Thanks also to both Julia and Carole, whose helpful comments in the review section allowed me to make some much-needed corrections during the rewrite. I would love to know what you think ~ reviews are very much appreciated!

This was nominated in the 2010 Quicksilver Quill Awards for Best Canon Romance.

This was very very good. Like it could have been part of DH. It seamlessly weaves it's way as part of the story - and works well with the big kiss scene after Hermoine and Ron go to the COS. Can't wait for your next story! Love that it is so in canon.

Author's Response: Thanks so much. I think it could work with the kiss... but it kind of falls apart with Harry saying "this is the moment?" don't you think? If he didn't say that (indicating it was their first kiss), it would definitely work. I'm so glad you liked it, and thanks for leaving a review!

Date: 11/16/09 Title: Chapter 6: Chapter 6

This was perfect. I love a good fanfic that is really in canon - and this was - could have been the chapter Jo should have written. I love the more mature Ron.

Author's Response: Thanks so much for the encouragement. Ron is my favorite, and I especially love the way JKR grew him up through the series, particularly toward the end of HBP and into DH of course. Thanks again for taking the time to leave a review. I really appreciate every one. :)
