Lindsey Tonks appears to be a normal, almost invisible Hogwarts student, but underneath her is someone far from normal. What the world doesn't know is that Lindsey is the daughter of two well-known imprisoned Death Eaters, and has an identity she must hide from the world. Underneath Lindsey is a girl named Lyra Lestrange, a girl who is meant to be a secret forever. But will it last forever?
*Begins in GoF and follows the series through DH.
**Will appeal to fans of the Black family! Prominent characters are Bellatrix, Tonks, Andromeda, Sirius, and (to an extent) Narcissa.
Part Four Synopsis:
It's the summer after Albus Dumbledore's death, and the whole world is falling to Voldemort and the Death Eaters. Broken-hearted Lyra, unable to return to Hogwarts, must go into hiding with her family. It doesn't last long, and eventually Lyra is faced with a choice: join or die. Lyra's decision comes with many surprises, including a new ally who follows her to the final battle of good versus evil. While Lyra's path may seem clear, she finds herself torn between two sides for the final time, and in the end, despite tragedy and loss, Lyra accomplishes the impossible...which defies all of the agreements she and her family ever made.
Three years later, the fic has been completely finished! Enjoy reading it without having to wait for new chapters. Thanks to those who patiently waited and faithfully reviewed!
yes, even if she does pass out a lot, i think she still defianetly has the griffendor traits. she is very brave.
And I think it's a little bit of both. Seeing harry from the sidelines must always look a little bit like he's an attention-seeker, since everything DOES happen to him, don't you think? to someone who doesn't know him that well, anyways. And then just from Lyra's bitterness he is being portrayed that way.
And if it's a simple spell I guess that would work!
Can't wait! (:
Thanks. It's great reading the HP series and seeing everything from Harry's POV, but I like exploring it from a different one. Expect the next chapter soon!
It happened to me all the time through school. As soon as I was with someone, they left me because I wasn't who they wanted. They used me to get the girl of their dreams in looks. It never lasted.
hmmm.... i think tonks seems more likle she would be rather popular, don't you think?
*sigh* i wish lyra was nicer to tonks after she found out. i think she would be 'reasonable' as she /you put it, but i still thinbk sh ewould... support her sister, don't you? and she knows, or will find out, ho wit is to live when everyone thinks she's dangerous... which she is, as much as remus, in my oppinion!
Yeah, I do think Tonks is more the popular type. Here's my explanation for this. I picture her with a lot of girl friends, and even a lot of guy friends. I see her as someone who had several boyfriends and huge crushes and whatnot. Because of her Metamorphosing ability, I can easily see boys taking advantage of that, however. She can be popular but be in this situation at the same time, I think. This is just how I see her and how she works out in the fic.
Lyra thinks she's supporting Tonks by keeping her safe. She, as I said, doesn't want to see her hurt again, not just emotionally, but physically. Lyra has lost a lot in her life and doesn't want something bad to happen to her cousin/sister.
ukay, i loooved neville saying that 'bout the candy wrapers..... and i was so glad she apologize. well, she should, and i knew she would, she is nice.... but still, kinda... *evil (at times)
and isn't it that if it's an odd number of people in a clase, there is a group of three? but it works....
uuuh, i like that lyra didn't curse him!!! *proud* and i like the gernal part... is she going to see tonks in hogsmede???
Author's Response: Yeah, she can be evil at times. As far as the odd number think, I think both work...I mean, in my French class, sometimes we work in groups of three with odd numbers and sometimes the teacher works with someone if the activity can only be done with two people. It just depends, and this chapter wouldn't have worked without Snape. To answer your question, she will see Tonks in Hogsmeade, coming up in a few chapters.
uh, it's heating up!!!! *drummroll*
Author's Response: It certainly is!
uh, the cormac part was grrreat! and i see trouble coming to romilda vain.....
Author's Response: Thanks! Even if he was minor, it was fun to write about him. You won't see any more from Romilda, though. No Crucios or anything.
): how slow is slow?
and I liked this chapter. I like how Lyra felt bad about being mean to Nott...
uh, i liked how the star was like, so bright to her. it had a nioce affect to it, don't yopu think???
ack. her punishment was like, the EXACT same thing as harrys was in HBP. snape even formed the same instuctions... like, what he said... i don't know, but it seemed a bit increative to me. sorry.
Oh and you said-well, Nott said:
. "Look where Peter Pettigrew ended up."
Well, he doesn't KNOW Sirius wasn't guilty, does he? So he would think Peter Pettigrew is innocent, so he wouldn't say that. he would have said Sirius Black....
Well, I've actually been able to submit sooner than I had expected, but it also depends on how fast the mod gets to them. I know her punishment was practically the same as Harry's because I thought...I mean, there are only so many punishments, and just because Harry did that once didn't mean he got through all the cards. I figured other students would do that as well. To clarify your other comment, Nott does know that Sirius is innocent. Remember in the first chapter of HBP when Fudge told the Muggle Prime Minister that they realized he was innocent? I figured it would have been in the Daily Prophet, so everyone would know. Anyway, I'm glad you liked the chapter and the parts listed. I don't think the wait for the next chapter will be too long because I submitted it yesterday.
Uh, greta! I can't wait!
And I accept your justificaltion. (: It makes sence. Same with the Nott part... sorry. And this is not really a review, sorry. But I wanted to tell you how smart you are and that I was completly mistacken in my last review. *hangs head in shame* :P
Author's Response: No, no, that's okay! We've all been mistaken before, I'm sure. For example, there's a part in a future chapter where Lyra is trying to apparate in Hogwarts. Then I remembered that doesn't work, so I need to fix it. That's one of many mistakes I made. No big deal.
WHOA!!! I like completly missed that therre were more chappies!!! well, now i have to catch up!!!!
it was a good chapter, but Lyra wondered if Askaban had changed bellatrix, which doesn't make any sense, as she was sent there BECAUSE she was evil-and changed, right?
well, i'mma go read the nexy chappie :P
Author's Response: Haha, yeah, I've been submitting a lot because I have the time and they have been getting validated quickly! You're right, Bellatrix was in Azkaban because she was evil, but it seems to me like she went more evil and definitely insane while she was there! I didn't really catch that, so thanks...maybe I'll change it if I feel up to it :P
Summary: “Parked all right, then?” Ron asked Harry. “I did. Hermione didn’t believe I could pass a Muggle driving test, did you? She thought I’d have to Confund the examiner.
“No I didn’t,” said Hermione. “I had complete faith in you.”
- DH P604, UK Edition
The story of how Ron learned to drive.
it was amazing!
it fit ron and hermiones characters perfectly!
His fears? Flying...his own wand...fitting in...sticking out! His best friends? A passionate fire-breathing cousin, and a cool, aloof Death Eater's son. His destiny? Anything but ordinary!
Join Albus as he experiances his first year at Hogwarts and begins the journey out from under his father's collosal shadow, if he can survive it of course!
Meet the new Tenacious Trio, Albus Potter, Scorpius Malfoy, and Rose Weasley
really cool story even though i dont thinkkingsley should be headmaster just isnt the type-i still love ur story! keep writing!
well i think its kind of ironic that rose and scorpius always bicker like ron and hermione did and i dont realy agree with having afraid of hights but still-COOL!!!
That is a common misconception. Rose and Scorpius do bicker but its because they have an intellectual rivalry, arguing is a way of sharpening their tools in a way. Ron and Hermione where just different, and they argued because Ron picked fights with her, but they never argued as equals, Ron usually left his depth in the first barrage. In Rose, Scorpius has found a mind simular to his own but with a different enough perspective to make the discussions interesting. In Scorpius, Rose has found someone that might be even smarter than she is, and she has to test herself against him to really find out. The fear of heights is explained in the next chapter. I hope you will continue to read.
Summary: James would do anything to get inside Lily’s head. Lily would do anything to get away from James. Lily was brewing a banned potion. James went to find her. Lily made a mistake and the potion exploded. James got his wish, but is it much more than he bargained for?
After a year the Epilouge is now up! Come read for a bit of fun!!
Runner up QSQ - Best Chaptered Canon Romance
Reason for Nomination:
This is the most unique take on how James and Lily really got to know each other. The story is hilarious and keeps you laughing throughout, but it never lets you forget the serious stuff. Plus, she somehow manages to end each chapter with a nice cliffhanger.
Uh, I loooved it! It was so great! I am looking forward to the next chapter. And it would be GREAT if Carole would record this!!! (:
Author's Response: Thanks :) I was so excited when Carole said she would record this. It would be great :)
OMG please write an epilogue! I love this story sooo much, I don't want it to end! But it was a good ending, and I have the recording to look forward to. But really, AMAZING. And SO funny, OMG! I was a bit confused in this chapters, at a few places, but that is probably due to the fact that I was racing through it so I would find out what happens!
wow, i love it!
athogh i must say that the potion having frank appear next to alice isn't really that realistick...well, i mean even for magic...and he could then just fly or use the flu network or whatevr, but whatever, it works for thee story, so...
all right, next chapter, here i come!!!!
Author's Response: The potion isn't really meant for bringing your boyfriend to you, it was originally meant to find your solemate (i.e someone you haven't met yet). Alice only wanted it because she knew Frank was her solemate and he wasn't allowed to visit Hogwarts. Glad you like the story anyway though.
off to add to my faz's!
Author's Response: Thanks :D
i like it A LOT!!! but i think it would have been better if Rodger hadn't turned out to be so stupid...after all, lily DID see something in him before, plus, it's kind of what one would expect...but it works for the story, so whatever...
i REALLy like it!!! i wish it were more than 13 chapters, though...
Author's Response: Rodger isn't exactly stupid, he just has a high temper and is a bit possessive. However, Lily didn't see these qualities in Rodger before she went out with him, and she wasn't going out with him for long. But I see your point though. Thanks so much for the review and I'm glad you like it. Only two more chapters to go...
OMG! another amazing chappie!!!!
the beggining was so maraudery!
and i was waiting for something touching like that to happen, since you didn't really portray the depth of their friendship in earlier chapters...
now, to sirius' speech: i thought it was great, although i find it hard to believe sirius would remember everything exactly word for word and it sounded kind of memorised...although you do say he wanted to have that spech for a long time, so maybe it was...
sorry if i'm not making that much sense, it's 5.20 in the morning, i stayed up all night reading your fic! it was SO GOOD!!! well, i'm off to bed.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review, sorry for taking so long to reply. I'm glad you found it touching. I think Sirius was totally capable of memorising something that important to him - think of Hermione- and I think James' words meant a lot to him.
I'm glad you stayed up all night reading :D
Summary: It is June 1976 and The Marauders are at the top of their game. From the outside they look to have everything.But appearances, as the saying goes, can be deceptive.
James is discovering that not everything in life is his for the taking. Sirius knows he will have to defy his formidable family. Remus lives in constant fear of his life beyond Hogwarts. As for Peter... Well, Peter is struggling to live up to his friends.
The ties of friendship are strong, but war is raging and with a dark power rising those ties will inevitably fray.
Added to the mix is an adversary called Severus Snape, some lost House Points, a prank or two and a whole lot of Lily.
This is a Marauder tale.
This is a story of what made them special.
This is a story of why it started to go wrong for The Lions of Gryffindor.
OH MY GOOD GODRIC! Lions of Gryffindor won the 2009 QSQ for Best Marauders' Era Story. Amazed and incredibly grateful to those who nominated, judged and have beta'd this fic. THANK YOU.
Trick or Treat!
3. She clicks on her mouse and swipes her wand;
Some stories go up, and some stories are gone.
Stories of her own? Why, she has plenty!
Fewer than one-hundred, but far more than twenty.
well yeah, but James is so cool and Lily and James are just supposed to be together so the American is just ruining everything, even if he is nice
Author's Response: Hmm, I'm not sure James is that cool at the moment. Rich is pretty cool, but then he's older. James is still a bit of an idiot, but then he's only sixteen - poor love.
I liked your characterization - how James wanted Peter to stay, but then still told Mary the truth, well part of it, when it looked really bad for his friend. Oh, and Remus at the beginning, how he wanted to walk by himself...
I do have some nitpicks, if you're interested :p
You have some missing spaces at these places:
wand?”Both Peter and
and here you need a "
“Priori Incantato! he
I hope you update soon!
Author's Response: Always interested in nit-picks, Andi. Ta lots. Thanks for the review and I shall keep updating - I promise.
Ah, Carole, you made me wait :( but it was so worth it! Great job as usal. I loved the Sirius being jealus; the convo between Lily and James; well, I lik,e all of it. But musn't it vbe weitd having your cousing teach you? How well did they know each other?
And I've read a fic like that before, the birthday in foolmoon... oh boy.... they ended up breaking up..... hope you make it work! But you will :P
Well, i'LL BE WAITING FOR THE NEXT CHAPPIE!!!
Author's Response: Ohhh, they don't know each other that well. I think Sirius just remembers him from a party they gatecrashed. Thanks for reviewing. Carole xxx
