Summary: There was something about him that made him irresistible to her. Siobhan Murphy will go to any lengths to ascertain her deepest desires - but when the object of those desires is a married man twice her age with secrets darker than she can imagine, she will find herself caught in a scandalous liaison that she can't walk away from. Not Canon-Compliant.
Wow. This is such a great story. I've stayed up very late so that I could finish reading all the chapters you have written from beginning to finish for two nights. The story is truly mesmerizing, and although you've killed Ron and made me cryy :'(, I still adore this story.
Hopefully you update soon! Your idea is original and your story is well-written. Congratulations. :D
Summary: London: Four murders have taken place under bizarre circumstances, for what seems to be an equally bizarre reason.
Harry, a happily wedded man with a wonderful wife and a cute daughter, is an Auror at the Ministry of Magic and is now given a new case to solve with Ron and four other Aurors. Incidentally, the four Aurors include Ginny, Harry’s ‘schoolboy crush’; and it turns out to be much more than a crush when Harry sees her again. What’s more is that Harry is working upon a case that seems to connect to him directly. And once again, it opens up old fears: fears of losing loved ones.
Ron, on the other hand, seems to be tired of Hermione. Tempers are running high and fights are breaking out more often than usual. Are they really falling apart? Or can they sort this out before it is too late?
Then there is the case itself. Who is trustworthy, and who is not? Who is deadly enough to murder four people in cold blood?
Indulge into the gut-wrenching action, combined with warm romance and tingling suspense; while I tell you a story of love, ambition and obsession… a story of what those killer instincts can do. EDIT: MAJOR revamping going on, with regard to plot, characterisation, and general style of writing. I would urge you not to read this until I've removed this notice because I wasn't very good six years ago, and this is as bad as I was. *Places traffic cones*
Wow, suspenseful. Please update soon!
Author's Response: Thank you! I've already put chapter 8 in the queue! :)
OMFG!!!! What a cliffhanger!! ARGHH, I mean, the foreshadowing about how Parvati was going to be attacked/killed was pro, but still.... what a shock! who is it???!!! This is such a great story :)
Author's Response: LOL. Well... Thanks! But the killer? :D You'll know. Thanks for your review!
NO! Don't make Ron and Hermione divorce!!! :'(
And the Naina crying for her mother subplot makes me want to cry ( I am tearing up as I type this...)
Author's Response: :p I think Ron and Hermione are being really silly... don't you? Thanks for the review!
Oh no!! How sad! Please get Hermione and Ron back together, it breaks my heart to see them unhappy! :( *sobs*
Author's Response: Hey! Take two slices of cake and enjoy them, first! Now. Ron and Hermione... hmmm... *scratches her eye* well... I'll see what I can do about them... (muahahahahahahahahahahahahaha......!!!!!!)
Summary: It's 1959 and Persephone Marcello is in her seventh year at Hogwarts. She's fairly apathetic about the whole matter; the only thing her parents want her to do is marry a rich man while she's still young and have lots of children. But everything around her is changing. She and her sisters are growing older, her friends are falling in love, and she's afraid she might be, too. All of a sudden, nothing seems certain anymore, and Persephone is absolutely terrified.
Nominated for a Quicksilver Quill Award for Best Original Character: Persephone Marcello
Wow... poor Persephone. I wish she'd try though-- she's made her life completely Rickert-centered and once Rickert was taken away, she doesn't know what to do with herself. She needs someone to talk to, I think. Can't wait until the next update!
Author's Response: Thanks! Yeah, Persephone isn't thinking very clearly at the moment...the next chapter will b eon the way shortly =]
Good chapter. Poor Persephone. She's missing the nonexistent ring on her finger, in my opinion. :D. Maybe a future for Claude and Lorelai? Is Claude a 2nd Rickert in the making?
Almost a year after you posted this story, I came back to re-read it. I stayed up and finished the entire thing---this is hands down one of my favorite fanfictions!
It's just as charming as it was a year ago :)
Oh, wow! I am so glad that Persephone's finally getting a job-- poor girl, I knew she was going to regret dropping out. Do people all around the world know about Rickert and his affair with a student? They're in France!! How could they know?!? But great chapter, I can't wait for the next update.
Author's Response: Thanks so much! =]
Wow... the last two chapters were shocking, although I'm not really surprised that someone found out--- although those last two ideas were contradicting, it's true. I'm sorry that Rickert and Persephone were found out, and I wish they weren't, but I knew that it would have to happen sometime (especially with a nosy friend like Jana.) Speaking of Jana, what is her problem? She may care about Persephone but is acting all stick-up-the-arse the way to go about it? And Claude after all this Gracie/Lorelai business has the nerve to go around getting into other people's affairs after ignoring them? The cheek! lol. I have to say that the only characters that haven't annoyed me recently are Lorelai and Dumbledore. At least they were consistent! (Well, mostly consistent. :D). Can't wait for the next update! love this story!
Author's Response: haha thanks so much. the next chapter is in the queue =]
OMG!!!!! Please update soon, I'm on tenterhooks to find out what happens! I hope that Persephone reconciles with her family, it would be so sad if they don't!
Author's Response: haha thanks...the next chapter is currently in queue and should be up shortly =]
What? Haha, I'm glad that Persephone is maturing, and poor poor Jana!! Elisabeth is adorable, but honey, why say Daddy first? Lol. I love this story and I can't wait to see how you wrap it all up! Persephone
*Persephone is DEFINITELY one of the best fanfics I've ever read--- not only on this site, but anywhere. Thank you so much for a great story. =)
Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much! I've definitely loved writing it!
God I love this story. ;)
What a wonderful chapter--I think it satisfied all the cravings for closure that we've had since Rickert left. The man is a tool. But, I adore this story, and I'm so glad that somewhere along the way, Persephone grew a backbone and became her own person. I'm so proud of her, even though she is a fictional character. :D
You have real talent as a writer, I hope you keep it up!
I look forward to buying a novel with your name on it someday. :) :) :)
Congratulations for writing a great story.
Wow... I kind of predicted that she would feel like this... but I wish she didn't. Stupid Rickert. I wouldn't take him back.... but please make him come back! And Persephone might devote herself to the new infant, instead, so she might be ok... will it be a girl or a boy?
Author's Response: You'll just have to wait and see...=P thanks for reviewing!
*shriek of delight* I LOVE THIS CHAPTER!! I'm sorry, I'll stop being a fangirl now, but the homeyness of this chapter just warms my heart. :D
Please let Persephone get a wizarding G.E.D and get a job so she doesn't completely throw away her life. She needs something to do to be completely happy, she's too dependent on Rickert.
Author's Response: hahaha thank you so much. I promise Persephone gets a bit more independent in future =]
OMG!!! CALLED IT!!! lol. What a well-written chapter... poor Persephone... Rickert needs to PROPOSE.. or she'll leave him and live with her new baby... maybe it'll be a boy? She has too many women in her family, so I think it'll be a boy. I'm so excited! lol. You've been writing a lovely story, don't worry about its length.
Author's Response: haha thanks so much! =]
Awww!!! Good chapter! And thank you for still thinking of your fanfictions while college hunting all over Ohio, while doing all your other work! I can totally sympathize. :P
Author's Response: Haha, thanks so much! I'll be so glad when all this college stuff is over =P
Wow.... I'm really starting to get into this story and I can't wait until you update! Keep them coming! Will Claude and Gracie regret their decision? And what about Claude and Lorelai, is that over now?
Author's Response: Thanks so much! The next chapter should be in queue shortly. Thank you for reviewing!
Awww, poor Persephone. :(
And who names their kid Slate, honestly? :P
I'm glad that she's trying to get back into the swing of things, I really hope that she finds her way out of this depression soon!
Will her family ever meet Elisabeth?
I've been following this story for months now, and it just keeps getting better and better! Keep up the wonderful writing skills! :D
