Storm and Stress by Merlynne
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 12]

Summary: Past Featured StoryMeleia Varias, a fourth year student at Durmstrang Institute knows that reason often has little to do with anything in life, and justice is an abstract concept. Under Headmaster Karkaroff’s watchful eye, Meleia explores the frightening implications of her past as she works to un-fog the future in a world that refuses to be made sense of.

Ah.

I think it would be a heinous thing to say that the scene in the forest was beautifully written. :/ But, really, your writing was top-notch in this chapter in particular. I am too eager to read what is going to happen next to leave a longer review. I only want to say that the story continues to be as thrilling as ever, and the friendship between the three students is getting more and more interesting!

Date: 02/18/12 Title: Chapter 6: Chapter 6: Consequences

Argh! I want to read that book lol. As I said in one of my previous reviews, vampires fascinate me, and your use of their myth fascinate me as much. It's going to be quite an enjoyable and pleasant experience for me, finding out what else Radulescu has to offer on the subject. I have to say, his end was rather horrific.

Karkaroff. Hmm. What was he trying to prove with that little trick he did with the pipe? I kept thinking it was a smell that should provoke something in an infected person. The part about the Bears threw me off a little, if only because it has never been mentioned before in the fic, and not indicated in the scene either. Will we get more on this, and Karkaroff in general in the fic? I hope so!


YES! Krum's character development made me grin. :D Moving on to the next chapter, and a bit sad there's only one left for now.

DDDDDDDDDDD:

I am afraid my reviews are mostly going to be squee-y from now on, as the story gets more and more exciting! Meleia does have that power she isn't really aware of as yet. I can't wait to find out how she's going to find out.

I must also mention that I like how you keep slipping in lighter moments in the story. I giggled a lot in this chapter, which was a nice break from the nail-biting suspense which is the general tone of the fic.

There are so many questions in my mind, and it's going to be trying to wait for the answers to be gradually revealed! Amazing story and world-building, Merlynne! I'm glad I clicked on it this morning. :)

 

Culinary Secrets by Gmariam
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 7]

Summary: Oliver Wood has just destroyed dinner and begs his Muggle neighbor for help. She's a natural in the kitchen, and Oliver is attracted to both her culinary skills and her quick wit. When he reveals a bit more than he had planned, he in turns gets a bit more than he could have ever imagined. Is his pretty Muggle chef all she seems—or something else entirely?

OO H OHH OHH OHH! Why did the queue have to close now?? I want to know what happens next. I am going to bet Julia is a vampire (well, duh!). But she's a chef as well. That is so bloody intriguing, because ... well, vampires don't eat. Bahaha. Okay, I am all excited right now because I want to read the rest!

Nice start, GinGin!

 

blackbird over the dark field by psijupiter

Date: 09/04/11 Title: Chapter 1: blackbird over the dark field

I'll admit that I don't ship the two of them, but I love Remus, and find Snape fascinating as a character, and you have really written this well. I love the dark mood of despair (which alternates with the mercilessly small but nevertheless visible sense of hopefulness), the blatant absence of intimacy (or its subtle presence), and how summer is inverted in the sense that it brings the gloom in their lives. Welcome back to writing, Ali!

As threatened, I am going to claim my words, though I won't take all 150 because I am just that perfect. :P And here they are:

The year disintegrates from there on out, a slowly turning spiral, aiming for the pit of the summer.

I can't describe how beautiful this line is. It was worth nearly breaking my hips to get this done.

High by Equinox Chick
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 233]

Summary: Past Featured StoryScorpius Malfoy is the Seeker for Slytherin. Not only that, he's the best Seeker at Hogwarts, and it's his catches that win matches. But this year things are different; Albus Potter has switched to Chaser and the new Gryffindor Seeker is his annoying little sister.

This is the story of how one match and one missed catch can change your life.

This story was accidentally deleted, so is being resubmitted ... very very quickly.

SQUEEEEE! High won the Best Next Generation QSQ award. Thank you so much for the everyone who has helped, either by beta'ing or encouraging me.

Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling. I'm not sure who I am at the moment, but there must be some Arthur Weasley blood in me.

Thank you Natalie (hestiajones) for doing the vast majority of the beta work on this, and Apurva for work on the early chapters

Squish for Natalie, Jess, Kara and Bob for helping me sort this out.

Due to an archive hissy fit regarding any story with a rating about 3rd-5th, I have temporarily lowered the rating on this story. However, I have NOT changed the content. This story is still a 6th-7th. You click at your own risk.

Date: 09/04/11 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1 -Flying High

Hello!

I really don't ship Scorpius with anyone, unless it is one of Ron and Hermione's kids. However, your story seems quite interesting. What draws me to it is Scorpius' characterisation. I hate it when people make him so vanilla. This way, it is much more believeable He can sting!

Lily with an apple? That's actually ... wow!I drew Lily with an apple once. Your fic reminded me of that.

Anyway, just wanted to say I am enjoying this and will stick around for the rest. Hey! You have other chapters posted as well. *goes to read*

Keep them coming!

~Natalie

Author's Response: I love you, SO. FREAKING. MUCH. Lily with an apple, perhaps it will start a trend. I've never heard of Scorpius with Hugo. Sounds ghastly. Thank you. Come again. ~Croll~

Date: 09/04/11 Title: Chapter 2: Chapter 2 - Sticky as Lips

Oh wow! I love Teddy here. I hope Victoire will show up later - I ship them. :)

Okay, Harry Cootes. Hahaha! That was hilarious, and I do like Lily's owl's name. I also think there is a lot of chemistry between Scorpius and Lily here (although I will never completely defect to this pairing :) ) Don't mind! Actually, I'd love to beta this fic for you, if you haven't finished it yet.


I am going to read the next chapter!

~Natalie

Author's Response: My beta is very mad. She might not let go of this fic despite being totally delusional in her pairings. *giggly snort* ~Carole~

 
Reviewer: hestiajones Signed
Date: 09/04/11 Title: Chapter 3: Chapter 3 -Smitten as That

Ohhh! We're welcoming more characters.

Okay, starting from the top - Astoria. She is very different from the way I write her, but she seems really fun, bitchy, cunning and loving, which is fantastic for post-war Draco. (I don't like Ariadne, btw.)

Rose. OMP. Hahaha! She is terribly snobbish here, but Benedict seems good for her. You know, for a moment, I thought you were going to turn the fic into Scorpius/Hugo. I personally ship those two and allusions (intentional or not) deeply amuses me.

Will go to Ch 4.

Author's Response: Scorpius Hugo - you mean Scugo? Heaven forfend! I like Astoria, too. And I'd rather like to get into bed with Benedict ... tni, I know.

 
Reviewer: hestiajones Signed
Date: 09/04/11 Title: Chapter 4: Chapter 4 -Kitten as a Cat

First of all - OH MY PRONGS. My name is Natalie! Wow. I am going to go along with the delusion that I am part of this exciting story!

*cough*

So many things happened! Scorpius is so deliciously cocky. ;) And I loved seeing Harry and Ginny, in spite of the awkwardness. Lol.

I am undecided about Vaisey - he seems a true blue Slytherin. I hope he'll get more development in the later chapters.

And OH! I forgot to mention this in my last review. Pustule Pips. It sounds strangely familiar ...

Author's Response: OOOh Pustule Pips, yes my beta thought that one up. She's a bit delusional, but I love her.

 
Reviewer: hestiajones Signed
Date: 09/04/11 Title: Chapter 5: Chapter 5 - Burst the Clouds

LMFAO. I am slowly falling in love with Scorpius.

No, actually, make that rapidly.

He has the perfect sense of humour! Dying at "constipated pig". Dying, I tell you!

Also, YAY for Blavender. I have read your Lavender fic - just never reviewed it out of laziness hehe. Ok! Now I have to know what happens in the Ball, and if these two will make it up!

Author's Response: They might make up ... you never know.

 
Reviewer: hestiajones Signed
Date: 09/04/11 Title: Chapter 6: Chapter 6 - Sky as a Kite

Cootes turned out to be a prick. Oh welllll. But yay! This means those two can get together now. :D

I do hope the relationship between Scorpius and Albus improves in later chapters. It would be nice to see that happen while they are still at school.


Heloise... I like that name...

Author's Response: The name Heloise came to me in a dream. I really am very inventive, aren't I? *dodges hex* Cootes is a prick, I agree. ~Carole~

 
Reviewer: hestiajones Signed
Date: 09/04/11 Title: Chapter 7: Chapter 7 - A Magic Show

Although a very eventful chapter, I have only one thing to discuss in this review:

Scorpius.

Hugo.

Snake dance.


That is all. Moving on to Ch 8.

Author's Response: He prefers his snake getting slithery with someone else

 
Reviewer: hestiajones Signed
Date: 09/04/11 Title: Chapter 8: Chapter 8 - Our Own World

:/ I like the fact that Scorpius loves his family, but if he ever finds out what his grandfatther did, it isn't going to be pretty. :/

I hate Ariadne with a frightening passion.

Luna/Hyperion. Clever.

Dying at "My Sweetheart".

This Natalie doesn't seem to be good at advice, like me ...

Author's Response: Between you an me, that Natalie is a scarily mad. Mind you she's also very smexy, so I put up with the delusions. ~Carole~

 
Reviewer: hestiajones Signed
Date: 09/04/11 Title: Chapter 9: Chapter 9 - The Family Name

HAHAHA! Zabaglione! Lavender is hilarious.

I really hope Harry didn't reject Scorpius for real. That would be unfair, and not very Harry.

Benedict is shooting higher up in my List of Fav Characters in High. Perhaps, Ernie married Mandy Brocklehurst, that Ravenclaw.

Can Ariadne die in a fire?

NEVILLE! :3:3

I like the way you have written Zabini here, and you give a convincing portrayal of him as a decent professor and head of house.

Author's Response: Chapter 23 - Ariadne dies in a fire. - I'm writing it now.

 
Reviewer: hestiajones Signed
Date: 09/04/11 Title: Chapter 10: Chapter 10 - The Great Escape

Chocolate Apple! Is that possible? I want one cause I love both. :)

I do love kissing Albus.

"Merlin, he’d never wanted a shag quite so badly."

Merlin, I've never wanted two characters to shag so badly!

OMFP TEDDY AND VICTOIRE ARE MARRYING.

I can haz more of Genister?

Hehe. Jokes aside, I LOVE the further development of character here. Scorpius starting to rebel against the elder Malfoys. Yes, I like that!

Also! OMP Albus and Scorpius spending a minute in each other's company and not wanting to hex each other off is a welcome relief.

Author's Response: yay, another review. Thankeeeeee And you haven't mentioned Scugo. Are you coming around to the idea of Scily?

 
Reviewer: hestiajones Signed
Date: 09/04/11 Title: Chapter 11: Chapter 11 - Incriminating Evidence

Gods. A chapter starting with Ariadne screeching can't be good. >.>

However:

“Eyeing up your boyfriend, Scorpy,” Ariadne remarked, panting slightly as she squeezed past him to get to her seat.

She knows what's up.

OH YES THEY KISSED IN FRONT OF EVERYONE BUT oops Ginny. :O

Author's Response: I think you're seeing things that clearly aren't there, dearie. Scugo? What is this word of which you speak? ~Carole~

 
Reviewer: hestiajones Signed
Date: 09/04/11 Title: Chapter 12: Chapter 12 - Meet The Potters

Knowing Ginny's temper, I can't tell you with how much trepidation I opened this chapter. Although I wasn't surprised, it was lovely to see Lily fighting for her boyfriend. :') Also, YAY Lavender.

That said, I still understand why Ginny would be mad, given the history between her and Lucius.

OMP TIME FOR THE DELIVERY.

But do me a favour and stop the c***teasing.

Author's Response: the c***teasing? What do you mean? BABY ZABINNNNNIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII. hey, someone should run a book on the name ....

 
Reviewer: hestiajones Signed
Date: 09/04/11 Title: Chapter 13: Chapter 13 - Legacies

YES YES YES! Harry was being Harry, after all. PHEW. Great characterisation. Your beta must be really amazing.

Shit. That moment I have been dreading (and also hoping would happen) has happened. I wonder how Scorpius and Lucius are going to handle this. :/

I am really pleased Ginny told him. That's a good move on her part. Hope nothing bad's in store. :/

Author's Response: My beta is amazing and I love her very very much.

 
Reviewer: hestiajones Signed
Date: 09/04/11 Title: Chapter 14: Chapter 14 -Confrontation

I forgot to mention this before; I like Truckle.
She has integrity and isn't about to just take bulls*** like Winky.

I dearly loved the scene in which Lily pretended to be a MacMillan. OH MANDY! But alas! It didn't last.

I am horrified at the ending! :O Lucius' reaction just made everything a hundred times worse. Poor Scorpius.

Author's Response: Lucius is a git breath. I nearly went the other way with this where he was remorseful, but ... he;s a git, despite Jason Isaacs being rather hawt. Thank youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu ~Carole~. I like Truckle, too.

 
Reviewer: hestiajones Signed
Date: 09/04/11 Title: Chapter 15: Chapter 15 - Breaking In

Things just keep on getting worse. :O That bint Ariadne. UGGH, I hope she ends up boyfriend-less by the end of the story.

But YAY! Teddy. :3 I am very fond of him, and I squee every time he turns up. Also, he is the only person (apart from Lily) to whom Scorpius can run to for help and get it.

Can't wait for 16.

Author's Response: I think Ariadne should end up with .... HUGO!!!!!!! I love Teddy. I want him badly, especially with black hair.
