Summary: Past Featured Story

Seventh grader Alexandra Quick returns to Charmbridge Academy. This year she faces bullies from another wizarding school, a secret Dark Arts club, and the machinations of her father, but her greatest trial yet awaits her in the dangerous Lands Below.

This is the second book in the Alexandra Quick series.

I've been a reader of yours for a while now, but this is my first time reviewing. Anyway, now that that awkward introduction is out of the way, can I just say - What an exhilarating read! With both Alexandra Quick fics, one of the things that really amazes me is how you've managed to take the Harry Potter world's idiosyncrasies and conceits and to expand it out to something that is both incredibly unique unto itself but also feels perfectly enmeshed into the larger wizarding world. The American wizarding society you created is both something totally original and something that feels like it could have been something created by JK Rowling. I applaud you for accomplishing this.
You're incredibly versatile as a writer. I envy that you can shift pretty much seamlessly between emotional moments and action sequences without either one beginning to feel confusing or tedious. Your characters all feel like real people who respond to their surroundings and to each other. You strike a good balance between plot-driven characters and character-driven plot. :)

Anyways, excellent work all around and I am eagerly looking forward to Alexandra's next adventure!

 

Every Breath You Take by Equinox Chick
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 29]

Summary: Breathing. It’s easy, isn’t it?
In. Out. In. Out.
Inhale.
Exhale.
Easy.
Natural.

But what if it’s not easy? What if your body struggles for breath? What happens if you cannot get enough oxygen into your lungs? What happens if your lungs contract so tightly that you’re forced to use all your strength simply to breathe?

And how on earth do a wizarding family cope with a Muggle condition that could kill?

This is Lily Luna Potter's story of living with asthma.

I am Equinox Chick of Hufflepuff and this is my entry for the Written World Challenge, Spring Term 2009. It has been written to garner support for Asthma UK.

I do not own any of these characters - they all belong to JK Rowling.

FACT: Asthma can kill.

I clicked because the story summary sounded wonderfully off the beaten path, and this first chapter's really promising. It's neat how you've drawn minor elements from the books back in! Anyway, cool idea and I look forward to seeing where it goes from here.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review. I'm pleased you're enjoying the story. Hopefully the next chapter will be up soon. Carole xxx
