Summary: Why should Hogwarts celebrate Christmas every year?
I suggest a sequel....A Happy Hogwarts Kwanza. Oh, wait, that's an American Holiday...but if Voldy can slip in olive oil, anything can happen, right?
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!
I read this and was thinking about a similar thing I wrote but never sent in to be reviewed. I found it fascinating that I hadn't come across fics about children of Death Eaters. The character I had created was pretty similar though she lived with her immediate family. And was of no relation to Bellatrix Lestrange. Interesting... Amazing writing!!!!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: Thanks! I kind of thought the same thing. I mean, it seems like Lucius Malfoy is the only Death Eater in with a family. I guess they're too busy being Death Eaters. Then again, I wondered why the Hogwarts teachers didn't seem to have spouses. If they do, they don't see them much. Maybe family isn't a huge deal in the Wizarding world. Anyway, I thought I'd experiment with the idea. I guess great minds think alike if we both have similar ideas :) Thanks for reviewing!
Summary: Draco somehow managed to get his very own advice column in Hogwarts' school paper, where he gives his sage opinion to those who dare to ask for it. Feel free to write in for advice about love, life, school, family, anything you can think of! But remember... with Draco, you tend not to get the answer you expected!
Are you sure you're not really Draco malfoy?? Because tht's exactly the kind of crap he would pass off as advice!!!! Absolutely hilarious!!! Better than fred and george burning umbridge to a crisp!!!!
Summary: The last thing Draco expects to find when he escapes his parents’ party is another deserter. He also doesn’t expect her to be quite so sarcastic, arrogant, or — well — so much like him.
You know, this was a wonderful portrayal of how truly rotten both Draco and Astoria are. Ironically, this is what makes characters like that so irresistable. You have obviously put a lot of thought into your story, and I'd like to see more. Well done!!!
Summary: Sixteen-year-old Jack Jones is the first ever American to attend Hogwarts, which he does so at the invitation of the famous auror Harry Potter.
But this is no ordinary year at Hogwarts. Things have been calm since the death of Lord Voldemort sixteen years ago, but now an incredible source of evil magic is growing and the students of Hogwarts are in danger from within the castle.
Can Jack Jones use his significant magical skill and brainpower to find out who is behind it all? But if he does, he may just encounter the most shocking revelation in the Wizarding World since the rise of Lord Voldemort.
No way! I wrote a draft for something similar to this last week. I never submitted it, of course (It was terrible) But I like this a lot. Can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: The author thanks you, though he says he apologizes for using a similar idea, and hopes you will keep writing your own story. He is finishing his first to-be-published novel at the moment, but whenever he has free time, he will be submitting chapters here.
Summary: Even death can't keep the Dark Lord busy for long! A few weeks after his death, Voldemort returns to earth and finds his magic lost.
Forced to live as a Muggle, Voldemort teams up with an unlikely friend in an attempt to get a flat, keep a steady job and regain his old glory.
Please note: This story contains ridiculous plot twists, kooky pop culture references, extremely out-of-character behavior, alternate universes galore and a great deal of random silliness. You have been warned!
Tito Riddle.....interesting. Cannot wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: The Tito thing just sort of happened. I wanted Voldemort to have a brother and I decided to give him the most random name you could think of. And you'll be happy to know that the second chapter is partially written and I am getting to it. Sorry that I've been so slow. Thanks for reading!
Summary: The Marauders have a knack for finding things, but are terrible at figuring out what they are. Luckily, Gryffindor is full of informative people...
This is a collection of related one-shots about confusion over Muggle objects. An excerpt from the first chapter, A Contraceptive Controversy:
James Potter was quite brilliant, or at least he’d like to think so. He had some of the best grades in the sixth year- they would probably be the best if he did his homework regularly. The Marauder’s Map had been his idea- even if he wasn’t brilliant, the Map certainly was. He was also an animagus. An (illegal) animagus at sixteen was something brilliant indeed.
So if he was so brilliant, then why was he incapable of identifying the object before him?
It’s not like it was particularly complex: all it was was a little piece of rubber, really. There’s nothing complicated about that, is there? No, not at all.
I suppose wizards and condoms are not such a good mix.... but that's what makes it so funny!
Summary: Roger Davies is the second-handsomest boy at Hogwarts. But he has the best looking girl as his date and will go anything to impress her. Unfortunately, that's not so easily undone...
Absolutely perfect! An excellent example of a shorter fic, but didn't lack any important details. And way to go on creativity! I love this storyline :)
Author's Response: Thanks!
Summary: The resistance against Lord Voldemort's regime meets a remarkable girl who changes everything. One-shot.
I like this chapter, and the concept of the Scent. Although it is similar to the Trace, something about the word "scent" and how you described the Death Eaters being so persistent in placing it on newborn babies made it all that more sinister, and therefore quite original, in my opinion. However, if you reread DH, then why did Hermione say Voldemort twice while they were in the camp? Because, if you'll remember, that was what got them captured in the book, because a charm had been placed on the name. I don't know, I just thought that canon-based or not, it's still an important part of the book and really shouldn't be disregarded. That's just me being nit-picky, though, because I really enjoyed this chapter! (sorry I wrote you a novel, here...I just had a lot on my mind)
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! You're right about Hermione and the taboo on Voldemort's name. I have not realized that before. When I was writing it, I was thinking mostly of a completely alternate scenario, and didn't pay much attention to details of canon. Thanks for pointing it out, and for all of your comments, I really appreciate it!
