Hmmm...well, not much to say on this end. I'm a teen girl who, obviously, loves J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" series. I really enjoy writing fanfics, and I want to be a published author someday. Yeah...that sounds really boring. Oh, well.

Oooh, very good! I have a verrrrrrry strong suspicion as to the mystery of the white cloaks *coughBellatrixandgangcough* but I suppose I will just have to wait and see. But yes! Ingenious story, really, I give it 10/10

Author's Response: Thank you! The next two (or three) chapters are the result of a wonderful and random epiphany I had a week ago while showering. I'm very excited about it! You'll learn a lot of unexpected things in the next few chapters.....


Unveiled Secrets by forsakenphoenix
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 22]

Summary: “He does the only thing that he can. He tells Harry a story about four boys in school, magic, smoke screens and tricks of light, about a beautiful girl that they'd loved in different ways and a prince without a crown who did everything that he could and nothing that he said he would but was kind and gentle and universally adored.”

I just read "When Saints Die, The World Stops Spinning"--I very nearly cried when I got to the end of it--and then read this one. They were both excellent! I very nearly cried at the end of for really is very hard, you know, to think of things to say on that line. I give this story 10/10! Keep up the good work!

Wow. Wowowowowowow. Very moving story. There were times when I laughed, times when I cried, and times when I gave my computer screen an ironic smile. You portrayed the characters very accurately indeed...I liked how you had Lily being friends with Peter. Too many fanfics have her having this uncanny sense that he's not to be trusted...but if that were true, she would never have allowed him to be Secret Keeper. A haunting, chilling tale, very well written. 10/10 I can't wait for the sequel!

Author's Response: Thankyou very much! I'm glad that you enjoyed it. The prequel is coming next.. and then the sequel. I live writing this story line SO much, and I'm definately going to see it through to the end. I hope that you;ll continue to read my stories. Lexi xxxx


Summary: Lily catches James sneaking out of the Gryffindor common room late one night in their seventh and final year at Hogwarts. She discovers a secret and....a friend?

Hey there! I'm a friend of Tara's and she asked me to get on and make this little update for her. Her computer has...well...died. And I mean actually died--completley crashed. So that's why she hasn't been able to update. She says sorry to keep you all waiting and she'll update as soon as she can. So I thougth I'd just let you know! ^^

Chapter Three is *finally* in! Yay! Now you better go and read it and review it, and make me happy! Chapter Four is already written, I'm just waiting for incentive from your *wonderful* reviews before I send it in ;) So hop to it! ^_^

Oooooh, lookie it's an excerpt from Chapter Three! *throws confetti*

"POTTER!" she yelled. "LET ME OUT THIS INSTANT!" He smiled to himself.

"Aw, I don't know, Lily, I mean if I let you out, you'll hex me," he replied. He heard her curse loudly and try to get out--"Alohomora!"--which, of course, did her no good. He waited for a few moments until she stopped.

"That's better. Now, I will let you out on one condition...and one condition only," he continued, pausing as he waited for his words to take effect.

Hmmmm...better keep reading when Chapter Three comes up to find out what's happening!

wow everyone, thanks for all the support. i was awol for a long time, had a lot going on in my life. it's been a REALLY long time.
i've decided that i will probably continue this story. for those of you still checking on it hahaha.
i'm sorry for disappearing on all my readers. but i'm back now! yay!


Summary: James finds out, what it takes to reach the unreachable. Lily vows to remain unmoved. A storm approaches; they’re just on the verge of it. Both find out, that it can rip open more then just old wounds. Truths surface. Extreme emotions, pure love, tears, friendship, hatred, treachery, betrayal, rage and lust. Would all that enough to bring the two most celebrated heads ever, together? To forget old differences? To forge a bond, which takes them, from being vanquished to be victorious, beyond the horizon? My first fanfic, so be fair, please. A deep tale, with light-hearted moments, passion and much more. This story was suppossed to express the famous couple's (James and Lily's) survival and at the end, interlace, through a down-to-earth plot. *I assure you that this will be worth a read. Just give it a try and please leave a review* *Rated PG-13 for language in later chapters* PLEASE REVIEW!!! One Chapter and over 1200 reads! ... thanks guys! .... as for the second chapter ... submitted it again ...
