Naw! I thought that it was going to be Teddy Lupin...now I'd love to see how Jaqui would handle him and his hair!!! but he'd be what, only 10 or so when this is set? Another great chapter, but for some reason i keep on expecting one of the kids, probably James to do magic unknowingly (like start to struggle in the pool but end up getting themselves out too quickly)

thanks for the update!!

Author's Response: Thanks. According to my timeline, Teddy is now eleven, and has just started at Hogwarts. Jacqui will, however, meet Ginny’s brothers and their wives and kids. The question is, however, will James remember about “the national statue of secrets”.
I’m working on a one-shot about accidental magic, it’s provisionally called “The Drakeshaugh Dragon”.

for some reason i really wanted to see Harry's reaction to everything, but i really like your take on how Luna and Rolf met! and a request...please update Aurors and School Girls!!! thanks for another great one-shot though! i really enjoyed it,

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I considered sending Ginny home, but it seemed fitting to finish with the Rolf/Luna thing. I'm busy doing a complete rewrite of the next chapter of A&S. It should be with a beta soon. -N-

 

Out of the Darkness by phoenix_song197
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 10]

Summary: The battle is over, but Remus and Tonks are trapped in the darkness. Trapped between life and death. Trapped among their memories. Will they find the strength to wake up and find each other or will they be trapped in the darkness forever?

So i've just read all 5 of these chapters. I really loved chapters 1-4. It was a great tribute to the lives and relationship of Tonks and Remus. However I fully believe that trying to have them come back to life in some way is like trying to rewrite Romeo and Juliet. They made a sacrifice and gave their lives so that their son could live in a world better than the one in which they lived. Attempting to change that in some way, i believe negates that and lessens it in some way.

Again, i really liked the other chapters, just not your choice of ending. If you'd had it that they had moved on into the after life and found each other there, and had them acknowledge that they had done all that they could've and that their son could now grow up without fear, that in my opinion would've been fitting.
thanks for listening and writing! I like your writing style, its easy to read! I also like the way that you had them "die" fighting together, protecting each other, it was almost how i imagined it! thanks!

Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad that you enjoyed most of it. I really went back and forth over what to do for an ending, and eventually decided to try it this way and see what happened, but I see your point and have considered doing something ending it that way. Thanks for the compliments and suggestions!

 

Players Rites by Northumbrian

hahaha!!!! that was great! especially because I play hockey and I become very superstitious leading up to finals time, right down to refusing to associate myself with the colours of the other team (if you continue with this feel free to use it!) and i have a prematch routine too but not as bad as that!! loved it, loved harry too!

Author's Response: Thanks All sports people seem to be superstitions. Many professional football players seem to be obsessed by ritual and others simply turn to complete nonsense (like a rubber band with hologram embedded in it). Thanks for the idea, refusing to wear the colours of the other team… -N-

thankyou. your one of the few people who actually get ginny, she's often portrayed as too soft or too hard, but you've captured her complexity completely. I'm not sure if she would have known about the horcuxes, given how little time there was, but that's a minor point....lol saw that it took you 5 hours to write this, don't worry it takes me a while to write mine too, and sometimes i simply end up walking away!! thankyou! xoxo

Author's Response: Oh, I know exactly what you mean! Personally, I think I can be a lot like Ginny. That's what helped me the most with understanding her character. About the horcuxes, I assumed that she knew because of what happened to Dumbledore. You know, being Harry's girlfriend and all... Hahah yes, I take special care when I write in choosing my words! I try not to walk away from my works permanently. I usually just save them for later, ya know? ;) Thank you for the review! :)

 

Summary: Post-DH, pre-Epilogue. Ron/Hermione one-shot. Ron and Hermione have a discussion following the trio's visit to the Headmaster's office (you know, the one where they talk to Dumbledore's portrait about the Hallows). Fluff and teeeensy bit of angst--really the only way to go with this pairing. ;)

This is good! were you involved with MiM on facebook? they had Ron confess that he loved Hermione right after Harry defeated voldemort, he got all the way up to "you probably know where this is going, so Hermione, will you..." before Harry butted in!! this was very close to a conversation that could've happened after that and i loved it!! thanks!!

Author's Response: Congratulations; you are the eleventh reviewer!!! (No, you don't get anything. My favorite number is just eleven. Moving on.) I haven't heard of this "MiM" thing on Facebook. However, I consider it to be a great compliment that this almost goes along with what is the canon in your head, so to speak. This conversation was taken from one of the canons in my head (if that makes any sense) and my goal as a writer is to share that. So thanks for reading, reviewing, and loving it! God bless you! :)

loved it! all of it! it was perfect! I didn't think i'd like a bit public proposal for them but that was awesome! and I agree, best line "Only Ginny could distract me from Ginny!"

Thanks!!

Author's Response: Thanks. This story was supposed to follow quickly after "The Question" it gidn't. The public proposal surprised me, too (honest). -N-

I thought I'd be sad. Thought i'd be in tears. But I wasn't. Lives lived to the full and died in peace and happiness need no tears. Thank you, that was beautifully written

Author's Response: Thank you for such a lovely observation. -N-

 

Owl Post by Northumbrian

Interesting change from your other pieces and I really really liked it. Something that I've seen done when writing from an animal's point of view (in novels not fanfiction though) is to stress the difference between the animal's and a human's senses, to demonstrate to the readers that the narrator is different to us, doesn't see or hear things in the exact way that we humans do. I think that something like that would have enhanced this piece even more, but like I said it was a wonderfully written piece. And I certainly want to know more about Lily and her keen understanding of animals, i especially liked that touch! Thanks for yet another great fic!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
I did a lot of research on owls while I wrote this, and promptly forgot most of it. Post owls behave like trained owls, not wild owls. I made a few references to his keen eyesight, but other than that nothing. You’re correct, I probably missed a trick. A description of regurgitating a pellet would have been stomach-churning, probably. Lily LUNA probably pays too much attention to her crazy (adopted) Aunt, Mrs Scamander.
