Once upon a time in the far, far, away land of California, Miranda Aramintha Rowena Ysabella Slyvia Ursula Evangelista- Mary Sue, for short- accepted an invitation to Hogwarts. As she searches for her one true love, will her soul mate be Draco? Harry? Snape? Colin? Fred and George? or...gasp...Voldemort?
Nominated for a Quicksilver Quill for Best Humour Fiction.
Author's Response: Thank you! I took vicious glee in writing it, lol.
All is not well.
George uses work and Firewhisky to cope with Fred's death until a drink with a friend leads to something that dulls pain better than alcohol. Emotionally torn by grief, he struggles to allow Alicia into his life...and then comes baby....

I love Calvin and Hobbes! Fred and George always reminded me a bit of them :)
Author's Response: It's the irrepressible naughtiness and wild imagination. :D Thank you!
Author's Response: Merci beaucoup!
Summary: A weekend trip to the mysterious Rose Cottage leads to Ginny's second pregnancy and Hermione's first. The Potters and Weasleys take on “The Next Great Adventure” as they anticipate the births of Albus Potter and Rose Weasley.
Very good! The best fan fic I have read so far! You have really captured the essence of the characters. I look forward to a sequel.
Author's Response: Thanks very much. It's very rewarding to read comments like yours and the best motivation to keep going. Take care!
Summary: 'Keep her - them - safe. Please.'
'And what will you give me in return, Severus?'
'In - in return?'
(DH, chapter 33)
Very nice and well written. It is easy to really feel for him at the end when you know what the final result will be.
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.

Author's Response: Ta, thanks! ^_^
Very Good :)
Author's Response: Now you have me hoping for multiple qualifiers. :D Thank you!
Author's Response: You have me imagining Mr. Burns from The Simpsons. :D
Author's Response: Ever seen James and the Giant Peach? There's a song, Love is the Sweetest Thing... :)
Love the eyes thing! Nice touch!
Author's Response: Thank you for liking it! :)
Leaving Granddad Granger with an Aussie accent was brilliant :)
Author's Response: I'm glad you like that. I think he sounds adorable. :D
Can't wait for the final chapter!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm looking forward to reactions! :)
It's official. Malfoy has murdered sleep.

I love that you slipped in the word ferret in a story with a Malfoy in it. A little tribute to Goblet of Fire, and one of my favorite parts of that book!
Author's Response: In one story I actually made Draco an Animagus white ferret, lol. I liked that part too and thought the movie didn't do it justice!
Summary: When Harry broke into Dolores Umbridge's office to demand answers from Sirius and Remus, he little knew this would be the last proper conversation he would have with his godfather.
But what of the two that were left staring into the fire?
For Moony and Padfoot, it is a chance to re-live old times -- a chance to answer those questions long put aside.
This is Equinox Chick of Hufflepuff and this is my entry for the Bookbasilisk Summer Challenge - Gift of the Gab.
Many thanks to Afifa and MorganRay for beta'ing this story. I would also like to thank Miss K for some constructive comments she made about an earlier draft.
Disclaimer You know the drill. I am not JK Rowling. I doubt that's come as a huge surprise, but I thought I should let you know.
I like your reasoning on why they suspected each other and not Peter. Very nice!
Author's Response: Thank you very much. Their mistrust obsesses me at times. I'm glad you liked it.
Summary: Hermione had always known that there was something special about her, but she never considered just how different she might be . . .
Very nice :)
Author's Response: Thank you! I really appreciate readers' input.
Summary: "Well the first time I met your mum she told me the reason she was never a prefect at school was that she had a complete inability to stay out of trouble.... And as for your dad…well he was a Marauder wasn’t he?”
Excellent! I love the thought of Teddy being able to control what Remus could not.
Summary: The waiting room at St Mungo's is a dreary place. Ginny knows it better than many people, for she spends her days there waiting -- and hoping.
This is Equinox Chick from Hufflepuff writing for the extra credit One Floo over the Fwoopers Nest category in the Bookbasilisk Summer Challenge.
I would like to thank Apurva (DracoGurlFurever) for beta'ing this for me and making some great suggestions.
I am not JK Rowling - I doubt that shocks you.
Very good and very heartwrenching. We went through a similar situation with my Grandma. You really did a great job of conveying the emotions and the need to escape experienced by the family.
Author's Response: Thank you for the review. Mmm, escaping doesn't always work - that's the trouble. Carole xxx
