Summary: After the trauma of his sixth year Harry and his friends enter into their last year of magical education at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The trio try to balance passing their exams with fighting Voldemort and planning their futures. Despite all that, romance will fill the air with wedding bells ringing out. This year Harry is in more danger than ever when his enemy finds new ways to try and get the Boy Who Lived. Voldemort’s presence will be felt more than ever as he steals more lives; can Harry find himself before its too late? And what adventures will he have along the way?

If you haven’t read Harry Potter and The Girl Who Lived then I would strongly urge you to do so because if you don’t then this story probably won’t make any sense to you. Be helpful to writers by Reading and Reviewing!

The very last chapter of this fic has been reworked. Please re-read there's more about the kids in there! Also my author's notes on the final chapter have also been added. Ten part fic related to this going up shortly!!

I'd be interested in a 10-chapter fic about the major parts of their lives! Do it!

Author's Response: I'm pleased to say that I managed to find the fic I spoke about just the other day, I'm fine tuning it now, but expect to see it going up within the next week!! Also, I've reworked the last chapter a little bit if you want to give it a re-read. I've added a bit more about the kids into it. Thank you very much for taking the time to review! Nat x

Okay, I really enjoy these stories. The first one was great. The one little nit-pick I'm finding, and its with this installment in particular, really, is that often times Ellie is seeming more of an almost motherly type character than a cousin/almost sister. I understand she is *technically* his guardian and she needs to be responsible for him. But firstly, he does still have Remus, and not to mention Molly and Arthur to be the "parental" type figures. She can still be responsible and loving (which is what I'm sure you were aiming for) with out being particularly...maternal, necessarily. I rather assumed she would act more along the lines of an older sister. Quite friendly and such (which she does, of course) and look out for him, but less in a maternal way, and more of a "lets go have some fun and bond together, but I'll still watch your back" sort of way, if that makes any sense.
Also, since it was revealed that they were, originally, meant to be more like brother and sister than cousins, I would think that there would be more of a bonding (although there was already plenty) but more along the lines of making up for all those years of lost time sort of thing going on, and less of her acting all "responsible" and "motherly". Or maybe I'm just reading too much into your diction. I dunno. I hope she acts more like the sister she was supposed to be than a surrogate mum.

This is a really good one. I'm relatively new to fanfics (I generally used to think they were only written by overly emotional preteen girls) but after reading this, I realize that they can, in fact be very well written, indeed. I really liked it because while it is technically a "romance" story, it was not overly sappy (at least not inmost places) and in fact it does seem to flow and work logically and naturally, and I especially like that Harry and Ginny seem to be REAL, just like JKR would want. (In case you couldn't guess, I'm a guy and don't normally do the "romance" story thing, but I find the end of DH just so anticlimactic, I need to get my fill elsewhere. and while I may be an incurably hopeless romantic, I like that its not so horribly outdone to be a typical romance novel/story, also known as "dirty girl book". But I digress and rant). Great job, really well written and I enjoyed it immensley. It even choked me up a couple of times. My few criticisms is that it doesnt line upwith DH enough for my liking (although you deal with that well enough) and that it needs more. But of course, thats where the sequel comes in, does it not? Where is the sequel? I must read it! And please tell me the sequel will be (at least somewhat) chronological to this one.

Summary: 2007 QSQ Awards Runner-up for Best Post-Hogwarts

Ready to tell them off for being so rude and refusing to leave when they didn't answer at first, Petunia opens the door to have a baby shoved into her arms and told she is his only family. Years after the great Harry Potter defeated Voldemort, Death Eaters have risen to power and taken over Hogsmeade, Hogwarts, and even the Ministry of Magic.

*Completed*

*Quote from The Epilogue*

Suddenly Harry was kissing her as if he couldn’t resist the temptation. There was a kind of frenzy to the kiss at first, a kind of desperate need, but it melted into something soft and sweet and gentle, a promise of a future when kisses would never be limited. When they broke apart he rested his forehead on hers, sprinkling a few affectionate butterfly kisses across her face. “I love you,” he murmured.

Meet the - Children? by Winged Artemis
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 244]

Summary: Lily Evans is a cheeky, brainy, hopeless romantic seventeen-year-old Head Girl with a sour temper. James Potter is an arrogant, hilarious, prank-pulling seventeen-year-old Head Boy with an immature head on his shoulders. Lily loathes James and James loves Lily. Blahblahblah.

However, when a mysterious locket and a very wacked Headmaster inform the two of them that their son is in grave danger, James, Lily, and of course, Sirius, are magically transported to the future to meet James and Lily's son and the state that the magical world is in.

A twist of mystery, fun, romance and some Sirius humor! And with a wee bit of J/L, H/G, and R/Hr!

WARNING: Tree climbing Dumbledores, valuable pieces of jewelry, and an ecess of sugar are contained inside - oh, and HBP is disregarded.

Why: This is a really fun, unique twist and I quite enjoy it. Bravo!
Where: Umm....places?
What: I dunno
Who: Lupin, tonks, maybe Molly and Arthur.
How: ?

All I really know is that I want to see the "old gang" back together, if only for a short bit, and I want Harry and his parents to find out the truth about each other, and actually get to know each other, and mayhaps be a "family" for the first, and only, time--Harry deserves it, really. Well, at least as much a family as one can be at Hogwarts, anyway. It might be kind of fun to have some H/G romance going on after they all know who each other are, and well, have good ol' Mummy dearest be all like "I approve, kay? Make me some grandkids...even though I'll never meet them for real" (although, preferably not in those words, haha)

Anyway, I really enjoyed this, and would like to see the rest of it. Soon. Update faster!

Author's Response: wow! thanks so much, that's really helpful!!

Please, update soon.

 

Broken Souls by kingbobrules
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 260]

Summary: As the wizarding world rejoices, Harry’s never come so close to just giving up. But as he tries to walk away from Voldemort’s crumpled body, something stops him. Someone. Ginny.

But Harry’s a broken man. He’s in no state to deal with his feelings for Ginny or to give her the relationship she deserves and he tries to tell her that. But Ginny’s got something of her own to tell. Something that might just make Harry face up to his demons and stick around.

However, Harry’s not the only one struggling to cope. Ginny is on the verge of breaking down and fleeing herself, but will anyone notice in time? And what on earth is Ron going to say when he learns of his seventeen year old sister’s situation?

Extract: Truth to be told he didn’t really know how exactly you would classify things between him and Ginny at the moment, but he did know the lie of land. They were having a baby together.

This fic is finally back!!!

Okay, first off, this story is so deliciously dark, I love it. Granted, your whole premise is skewed to make the main characters (Harry and Ginny, duh) seem a little out of character (the fact that they are pregnant before marriage and such) but you make up for that well. The major problem I see is that for 4 months no one looked for Ginny. I find that extrememly hard to believe. But other than that, its great! Keep up the good work, and update soon! We need Chapter 11!

Ok, I just read this straight through, and I love the story. Good stuff. But let me just say that Harry and Ginny need to stop beating around the bush and do something about it. They NEED to be together, period. End of story.

As to Holly, I have two theories: either, a. she is Harry and Ginny's daughter (though it seems rather obvious), or she is Remus and Tonks' daughter (seems to be so due to the fact she's a metamorphagus and all, and how nervous she gets around Remus)
Personally, I think both theories are valid. You NEED to update asap, so I can find out what happens.

 

Lily's Neverending Wait by rupertgrintlover13

The only reason I marked this for violence is because of some minor smacking and otherwise mean things. Nothing too terrible here!

Teddy Lupin's first year at Hogwarts. Canon-compliant. Nominated for a 2008 QSQ for best Post-Hogwarts story.

The war is over, and all is well, they say, but the wounds remain unhealed. Bitterness divides the Houses of Hogwarts. Can the first children born since the war's end begin a new era, or will the enmities of their parents be their permanent legacy?

I absolutely love the stpry and characters/relationships you're developing here, it is all so unbelieveably realistic, and for the most part in character, and canon-compliant, while at the same time being a completely new take. I really like how Violet and Teddy are cousins, and good friends as well, and both seemingly care about each other despite the house they were sorted in. Its really quite sweet--and makes for great story advancement, as well. I hope you get the rest up and validated as soon as possible. Consider this favorited, and I want to thank you for helping me get my mind off my own rough patch (where i happen to be stuck on) in my own story. You rock!

I absolutely love this story, love the way you've developed all your characters, especially Teddy and Violet! So great. I also really like Ophilia for some reason.
I really like how this story has become so action-packed and very much more than just what seemed to be on the surface at the beginning, very well done.
Update soon, as now I can't wait for more. I know I may be the only one who thinks this, but I think Ophilia and Teddy would make a cut couple. Who cares about age; its only a number, after all. hint hint. ;)

 

Summary: Nominated for the 2009 QSQ award for Best Male OC.

Harry's life is quiet now. He has a loving wife, a beautiful son, a career along side his best friend, and everything else he could ever want and never imagine having. But now, his career as an Auror will lead both him and Ron halfway around the world to investigate a mysterious school known only as the Skat-Hatokha Academy of Magic.

But from the beginning, something seems off. No one in the wizarding world has heard of this school, the board of directors can contact you, but you can't contact them, and the accepted students have all been in some trouble with the law and take their right to remain silent very seriously. Not to mention Lucius Malfoy's near obsessive interest in this case and his close involvement with the Ministry.

But as more time passes, the more the case begins to take on a life of its own, and not just for Harry.

Very nice, and amazing concept! although, if they were in Vienna in the 1930s, I'm sure they'd be orthodox, which means Tzipporah would have to sit in the womens section behind the MECHITZA without her dad. Just a nitpick!

Summary: What happens when you mix the Chinese military, Magizoologists, militant animal rights activists, Tibetan nationalists, wizarding bureaucrats, and a mad escaped yeti (besides chaos)?

You yell yourself yellow of course! Whatever that means

But seriously, this is the alternately sober and stupid story of a yeti’s bid for freedom and the madness that ensues. Rated 6-7th Years for substance abuse (Magic Pixie Dust, anyone?), colourful swearing in four different languages (English, German, Spanish, and Mandarin!), and MAD YETI VIOLENCE!

This is great. Absolutely brilliant. I had no intention of reading this, well, ever, because it just seemed so...absurd. BUT! I saw you're little schpiel about it on Schmergo's site (though I'm not registered, just a ghostie) and saw the art related to it and had to check it out, and I'm glad I did. Absolutely absurd, yet in so many ways, brilliant. I understand you don't like canon cameos, and I respect that (and rather like all the OC love) but I still think it might be fun to stick a cameo in there. Maybe not the trio or anything, but maybe like Luna (after all she's into the freaky creatures just like Hagrid), but undertandably, I can respect if you choose to ignore this.
Just a quick nitpick, you have Erick's boss being Hispanic/Spanish/Latino (in someway decended from Spaniards/Spanish-speaking), yet you call him a "dago", which at least here, is a slur for an Italian, not Hispanic.
Anyway, update soon and happy writing.

p.s. good to see another male fan fic writer, we are such the minority, here, after all.

Author's Response:

Ahh, yes… male fanfic writers. We’re a dying breed, aren’t we? Well, we Y chromosomes have never been very numerous to begin with, but I digress.

Thank you for reviewing this story of mine, sabradan – I am especially glad that you even understand it! The humour is much more subtle, being a sort of absurd, politically incorrect satire of environmentalism, terrorism, bureaucracy, governments, and even video games, among other things. Though I do mention some canon characters in passing (like Rita Skeeter), there probably won’t be any actual cameos. However, that doesn’t mean you won’t see any, as I haven’t finished writing the story yet. I would update quicker (Chapter Three is ready to go), but this is one of two humour stories that I’m writing and I can only submit one at a time, unfortunately.

Concerning the word “dago,” I’ve only heard it used while referring to Spaniards – it is, after all, derived from the Spanish name “Diego.” However, I’ll take your word for it that it’s a pejorative term for Italians, too.

Anyway, thanks for reviewing. Stay tuned for the next exciting chapter!
