Summary: Yuletide: ‘tis the season to be jolly! Unfortunately, for four and two-thirds Potters, jolliness is in short supply. Perhaps it is the season of:
Monkeys; fish and chip suppers; shopping in Knockturn Alley; a werewolf wearing glitter lipstick; a Moon in an eccentric orbit; Dung; snow; and a jolly fat man with a white beard.Hopefully everything will work out.
Consumer Warning: Like many Christmas gifts, this may contain nuts/nut traces. No Father Christmases were harmed during the writing of this story.
Love how you come up with great name--Marion Ette hehe. Gives a whole new meaning to pulling the strings. haha
Anyway, a wonderfully cute and funny story in the lives of the Potters.
Though, with the way the cymbol tin monkey (they are always evil) is featured quite a bit in the previews for The Woman In Black the toy monkeys are amusing.
Sorry for the lateness of reviews, just getting caught up from the Holidays.
Looking forward to more!!! :)
I had a lot of fun writing this Christmas story. Marion’s name is less subtle than those JKR gives some of her minor characters.
As for the monkeys, they had to be there, just as Al had to make a lot of noise. I confess, I’m a little disappointed that no one has commented on the chapter titles.
Wonder what Lav will be getting this Christmas from Mark???? ;)
I really love the way you write the kids dialouge, and it does take me a couple of minutes to figure it out at times.
Poor Dung, guess he has never looked at House Elves in the same way since Sept. or 1997. hahaha
Looking forward to the end of your Christmas present to us, your loyal readers and fans!!!
You'll find out in chapter 3 (The Big Store) - now with a beta.
I try to strike a balance between readable and realistic. If I fail, let me know.
Dung has more problems in the next chapter.
Summary: It's the 14th of February. Ron isn't stupid, he knows what that day is. But why is Hermione distracted, and what does Malfoy have to do with it?
This is Northumbrian of Ravenclaw writing for the Great Hall Cotillion which is a type of dance - who says writing fanfiction isn't educational.
Glad to have read this, wonderful addition to your opus!!!
As usual, Herminoie is taking the studied logical approach to the problem at hand.
While I didn't fall for the mislead about Malfoy, I did think back to your one shot about Malfoy is a Git and that the results were coming down in his favor.
I did like the way you came up with the Weasley's came up with the name Rose for their first born, of course the lunch where the Weasley's share their news with the Potter's could also be when we find out about the second addition to the Potter family.
As always, looking forward to more and a nice cold snowy day to sit back and reread your stuff!!!
This entire story was spun from the idea of "how Rose got her name". The Malfoy addition was pure mischief on my part, but Ron came up with the "it's a boy" line all by himself.
according to the birthdays I've assigned the kids, Rose is eight months older than Al.
It's currently -7(C) here, but it's frozen hail, not snow. I'm working on a George/Angelina one-shot, and Strangers.
George and Angelina!!!
Been wondering when you would get to that one.
Have some hot chocolate and stay warm!!
Author's Response: Thanks.
of course, it all depends on when the queue problemms are fixed.-N-
Summary: Neville and Hannah make several life-changing decisions. Luna helps, too.
This is Northumbrian of Ravenclaw writing for the Great Hall Cotillion
It is always nice when you venture away from the main two couples: better yet when you write about my favorite Puff and Neville (who could arguable be most folks favorite Gryffindor).
This was a really nice piece, and a great companion to MISTLETOE KISSES. Can't wait for more of your insights into the Neville/Hannah relationship, wedding and kids.
Hoping to catch up with the rest of your posts over the weekend.
Thanks, Edyeb. :-D
Most folk's favourite Gryffindor? I hope you're right, I certainly agree with Luna's comment in this story: "I love him dearly, but most people do, don’t they?"
The next Hannah/Neville stuff will be in either Hunters and Prey (chapter 10) or Strangers at Drakeshaugh (chapter 15, probably). They'll be appearing in both, but which chapter will be ready first?
Summary: Two letters from Gringotts send Harry, Ginny and Ron on a mission to discover the truth behind the why the Blacks were a "Noble and Most Ancient House".
It is always so much fun to see that you have a new post, even if I am a few days late in reading it. :)
Have my theories as well, but will wait to see what you have in mind.
As always enjoying your work.
Author's Response: Edyeb
Thanks for the review.There will be one more chapter of this tale, and that will be it. I'm working to finalise it now.
If you can identify the shields, and the names adjacent to Brunor's then you're close to getting the answers.-N-
Summary: George's birthday is never truly happy. Will this year be any different?
Great Hall Cotillion story No.3 from Northumbrian
CAn't wait till the muse strikes you for the sequel or chapter 2 for this one.
Finding out how George found Angelinia after everything (and when) after the events of Deathly Hallows.
Once again you have not only expanded JK's vision, but your own cannon as well.
I would really love to see what you come up with as a Romilda come-uppance story.
Author's Response: Edyeb
The idea of a Romilda come-uppance story is already forming, but I really cannot allow myself to start another chaptered story. The post-Hogwarts timeline I decided on when I started plotting Grave Days (a long time ago) is proving remarkably robust. Getting George and Angelina together later (they’re both 23) was always my plan. I know when they’ll get married, too. I have Luna’s and Dennis Creevey’s wedding dates on my planner, too.
Summary: Keeping secrets from your girlfriend can cause all sorts of problems. Revealing those secrets will never be easy.
Another story for the Great Hall Cotillion.
This was so sweet!!!
It is a shame that the films forgot about the Creevy's after Chamber!!!
I do like the way you have let Dennis and George bond, and it would be interesting to read your take on if Colin and Fred are watching their brothers from beyond the veil.
Let's hear more about Leslie!!
It is, and suspect that’s the reason they killed Lavender, too :-(
This wasn’t supposed to be a one shot, not initially. It was simply going to be a few background notes for a future chapter of Strangers at Drakeshaugh. Which is a roundabout way of saying that you will hear more about Lesley (in the UK Leslie tends to be the male spelling, and Lesley the female, though there are exceptions).
Summary: A story about Ginny's school days, and the relationship between a mother and her daughter.
I always love a great Ginny story: your writing it so I don't have to worry that it won't!! :)
Can't wait for more of your stuff.
I would love to see you write more Molly, you nail her so well
Author's Response: Edyeb
Thanks this will be a few brief looks into Ginny's life over several years. Ths is the farthest back in time I've written, and it needs a lot of research.It was pointed out to me that I'd never written from Molly's perspective. I have now.
