I'm a 24 year old Paramedic in the city of Buffalo. I have loved Harry Potter since I was 11, and I hope that love never fades. I'm sadly not as active as I'd like to be anymore, but I still remember when my proudest moment was my first publication on these archives. I still come back from time to time to read and even publish. I have several things in progress, and hopefully one day I'll find the time to finish them.
Summary: The war is over. How will everyone react? Will Harry and Ginny get back together? Or will their love be lost? And most importantly, can everyone learn to live with the choices they made?
Great work Alyssa. Can't wait to read more. Its really amazing. I hope you plan on making this long because right now there is a lot I want to know. Keep it up!
Author's Response: Thanks! I plan on making it epic-ly long. And chapter two is in the queue. Three is being betaed :D ~Alyssa
Summary: Harry had dealt with many things in his life, but one thing he loved with all of his heart was young Sirius. As Sirius helps Harry deals with many things without realising it, will Harry be able to talk about something that he held so dear?
Alyssa, I really love this story. It's interesting to read about Harry when he's that much older. You did an amazing job aging him, but still keeping him in character. The mirrors were a nice touch. It connected the future Sirius to the past.
This story is definitely a tear jerker. The ending made me cry. I really love a story that pulls me in, and makes me feel something. It's quite a talent to write something that draws people in emotionally.
It flows really well, and the plot, though short, is a perfect story. Harry really loves that little boy. I can't really find anything I don't like about it, besides the fact that you made me cry. I normally don't cry.
Great work Alyssa! I can't wait to read more from you.
Harry Potter had seen death - a lot of death. Friends had passed in his lifetime, more so than any one person should ever experience, but how much is too much, even for the Chosen One?
Ron Weasley is dead, leaving behind his wife and his best mate. How can these two cope with their Trio being cut down to two? And when danger lurks in the shadows, can they find the strength to fight for one another?
This is cruel and unusual punishment! I need to know what happens next! You have me so hooked on this story. It's truly amazing. I can only hope to be as good as you are someday. For the sake of my sanity, please update soon.
Aww, thank you, dear. I'm glad you enjoy it!
I'm planning on finishing this sooner than later, so I will do my best not to murder you with suspense. :D
You are still completely evil! But also completely amazing! I can't wait for the ending of this! But seriously, no more cliffhangers. Kay? :)
Hehe, as the next chapter is the last, it will be devoid of cliffies. There will be some 'what if' and 'wonder what will happen' things, but no giant unresolved plot points. Shall update soon!
A night of paperwork, coffee, and burning the midnight oil... it wasn't an unfamiliar occurrence. But add in a minor slip-up and a mistaken potion, and events were sure to take an interesting turn.
This story was nominated for a 2011 Quicksilver Quill Award: Best Non-Canon Romance
You are amazing. I can't believe I haven't stumbled across this before now, but I've been absent in the world of fan fiction for awhile. Please tell me there will be a sequel. I'm dying to know how that conversation goes. You have left my thoughts incomprehensible. All I have to say is wow. Very impressed by this fic. Great job!
I'm very glad you enjoyed the story. Gina and I were plotting via AIM, and the subject of love potion came up. But then my brain spun in different directions and thought, "Potion love doesn't sound very sexy, but passion potion is a different story!" So I wrote that story for Julia's birthday. And it was fun. :D
Thanks for reading and stopping into my little Harmony world!
If you only knew
I'm hanging by a thread,
The web I spin for you.
If you only knew
I'd sacrifice my beating
Heart before I'd lose you.
If I drown tonight, bring me
Back to life.
Breathe your breath in me;
The only thing that I still believe
In is you.
If you only knew...
They weren't sure, but they might have loved one another all along. Some avenues were always meant to be explored.
All I have to say this time is brilliant. I love harmony so much, and you make it so real. You are amazing. You seem to do a lot of birthday gifts. I'd love one if you have the time.
Hehe, I might just do that at some point. Granted, I'd have to finish the six or so I haven't completed yet, but my mind is always full of ideas. I'm glad you like it. :) I have a Harmony-esque poem and one-shot, and then a chaptered, but that's all I have left, lol.
Summary: I’m twenty-seven years old, so why can’t I just say no, or plead a headache and stay in my room?
Molly (jnr) was a Weasley with a difference. Not sparkling, not brave, not reckless. She was diligent and loyal, and usually overlooked.
For who notices ducklings when swans are gliding by?
I am not JK Rowling. You all know that. I am Equinox Chick and this is one of my entries for the Great Hall Inaugural Cotillion.
IT WONNNNN!!!!!!!!!!! (joint first with A Splendid Fate by hestiajones - you should all go and read that - it's very fab)Thank you judges for being amazing
Many thanks to Natalie (hestiajones) and Kara (Karaley Dargen) for their help with beta'ing this story.
The line about 'porridge' is a tip someone told me photographers use.
Due to the infuriating prissy glitch infecting the archives, I have downgraded this story's rating to 3rd-5th. However, this is actually a PROFESSORS story, so please do not click if sexual situations are likely to offend.
Really enjoyed this fic. I usually avoid next gen like the plague because of how horribly cliched it can be, but this caught my eye on the most recent and I was intrigued. You create such a believable world around an excellently written character. Your Molly is wonderful, and so is Aaron.
I love the addition of the other characters into the story. It makes it feel more realistic and natural for me. The bit with Kingsley made me smile, and McGonagall and Sprout's little argument as well.
I am rather tired at the moment and am failing to write anything constructive in this review. My apologies. Really enjoyed the story though. Excellent work.
Author's Response: Thanks Ash. I know how you feel about NG. Sometimes they just turn into Trio clones which is annoying, so I'm pleased you decided to give this one a shot. I can generally not resist adding other characters into a story even when it's a pairing. So I have some more in the next chapter - ha ha.
Thanks again ~Carole~
