Channeling Phlegm at the moment, please bear with me as I try to avoid turning into Bridezilla.
Summary: It’s the summer after the battle at the Ministry of Magic and Harry has returned to Privet Drive, where he awaits the time when he can rejoin his friends. A certain redhead has begun to occupy his mind and awaken emotions he never knew he had. As he continues to mourn the loss of his godfather, Harry slowly begins to heal and may have discovered a way to communicate with Sirius. Can it be too good to be true? Takes place directly following OOTP. Primarily a H/G romance, with some R/Hr as well. Rated R for adult content in future chapters.
With the preview at the end of chapter 16, I expected something naughty! But I did laugh when I read it. this was a good chapter, I hope Ron and Hermione call a truce soon!
Author's Response: Naughty? Not quite yet, but it is still early in the story (hee hee).
A swinging bachelor pad! Love it! The insulting toilet seat...can I order one of those? You were very creative with Fred and George's inventions, and great job on the rest of the chapter too! 10!
Author's Response: It just seems to fit for Fred and George, doesn't it? I wish I could order an insulting toilet seat too...imagine the possibilities! Thanks you as always for the great review.
I love when the twins invent something new. The secretary has to be a little twisted, hitting on a teenager, gross. Good idea making sure Remus accepted the terms of the will, nicely done
Author's Response: It's fun coming up with new inventions and I'm trying really hard to think like Fred and George, which is a challenge! Yes, the secretary is a sicko. She's just out of her teens herself (in my mind she is 19 or 20) and she's more into Harry because of who he is than anything else. I don't think age matters to her - just the challenge. As for the will, I really wanted to see Sirius take care of thise closest to him and Remus really needs a break in life.
THE TALK! I couldn't look my mom in the eye for a week. But a cool twist on the story. Loved that Tonks listened it on it too. can't wait for the next chapter
Author's Response: LOL...I can't agree more. I was so embarrased when I got "the talk", but it's a rite of passage and I really wanted poor Harry to have to go through that. Thanks for your great reviews - they are really appreciated!
Summary: If Sirius Black can handle Severus Snape for 7-years at Hogwarts, then watching baby Harry, his godson, for the weekend should be a breeze right? WRONG! Find out what really happens when James and Lily leave Harry in his watch.
I love that babysitting stories are all in the humor section. Your story is cute, I laughed at all the baby puke. If Sirius thinks he had it bad, he should talk to my dad. Wearing a navy blue suit, and my cousin spit up all over him, then my other cousin dumped a plate of spaghetti on his leg. Thank goodness for dry cleaning!
Author's Response: Oh, your poor dad, lol. He has my sympathy. :-)
Summary: Here is my version of the story of the Marauders’ first meeting through their eyes. A brief background of the characters showing the family ties on the morning of September 1st. I hope you enjoy it. Chapter two is currently being written. (1,244 words)
Aww, Mrs. Evans was a squib! I like how you started the story.
Author's Response: Why, thank you. I hope you enjoy chapter 2! It's Finally up!
Summary: They say that true love conquers all. Harry and Ginny, and Ron and Hermione will be able to put this to the test during the new term to come. With a deranged killer on the loose, new friends, a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, and Voldemort planning his final attack, it will be a year of trials and tribulations. And what exactly is the Year of the Dragon? You'll just have to read to find out!
CHAPTER 14 IS UP! CHAPTER 15 IS IN QUEUE!
this is for ch5, even if it says its not
this is an interesting turn of events. i'm assuming narcissa was a slytherin, but could i be wrong, or at least have and explanation on how she became friends with molly?
Author's Response: Yes, you can most certainly have an explanation. I'm sure that Narcissa was a Slytherin, and a pureblood. But who's to say that when she was very young, a first or second year, that she wasn't a perfectly nice person? I mean, the Sorting Hat wanted to put Harry into Slytherin at first, and he's not a mean person. For the purposes of my story, Narcissa and Molly became friends back in school, before Narcissa got with Lucius. Before Lucius came along, Narcissa wasn't so all about the pureblood thing, and it wouldn't have mattered anyways, because isn't Molly a pureblood? Anyways, after Lucius came into Narcissa's life, he pressured her to cut off ties with any friends he thought weren't socially acceptable, in other words, poor. At least, for the purpose of my story :)
*plays "She's Crafty" by the Beastie Boys to herald Heather's return to MNFF!* I was so excited to see this chapter! It flowed with the rest of the story nicely, I was thinking that maybe Harry was going to use a little bit of Parseltounge to find the snake...Feathertoes! I know I could have used that charm a time or two! The Order of the Dragon was a cool name, I wonder if Morgan might show up at a meeting? Ron was so adorable when he asked Hermione to marry him, and the ring was awesome! Great job!
Author's Response: *dances to the music and then takes a bow* Thanks so much Accio, it's great to see I still have loyal readers, even after all these months. Hmmmm....Morgan show up at a meeting? You never know, something along those lines might happen. And I'm glad you liked the whole scene with the ring. I'm afraid things will go a bit downhill from there for Ron and Hermione in the next chapter (gotta have a bit of angst). I'm hoping to submit the next chapter maybe tomorrow.
*first review dance* Ahh, so Molly put the charm on the ring! I wonder if it is only in effect if Hermione wears the ring, or because she accepted? Hmmm. And oh no for Luna and Hermione! I can't wait to find out what Draco, Harry and Ron plan to do! Nice job!
Author's Response: It's in effect since she said yes. If she takes the ring off, it'll still affect them. Yes, unfortunately Hermione and Luna have been taken. Chapter 13 mainly deals with Ron and Draco having a case of the 'poor me's' when they find out they can't go out looking for them.
I forget to mention before, KUDOS! for all the research you put into this chapter! Plus, H.U.R.L. was great! The presents from the boys were very nice, and a stuffed talking bear is MUCH better than a giant gold necklace anyday!
Author's Response: YAY!! Someone mentioned H.U.R.L.!!! I tried to use B.A.R.F. or R.E.T.C.H., but neither of them worked, so H.U.R.L. it was! Glad you liked the presents the boys bought!
Awesome chapter! Was Morgan actually flirting with Charlie?!? And since I'm a sucker for ballgowns, great color choices for the girls! Can't wait to see what happens next!
A talking dragon! YAY! Okay, I'm a bit nutty right now, but I love this chapter. Zeppie and Winky, how cute! one more YAY! for good measure. I just hope Morgan doesn't want any Vegemite (sooo gross!)
Author's Response: That's okay, I'm always a bit nutty :) Don't think I'll have any Vegemite in my story. But maybe :)
Thanks for the explanation. You deserve a cookie too. *chocolate chip cookies* (but of course)
Author's Response: OOOOOO! My FAVE!!!! And since it's a computer cookie, it won't make me fat :)
*sniff* the sorting hat's song brought a tear to my eye. great job on that. Are Harry and Ginny going to be able to visit Ron and Hermione in their room(s)? big bathtubs rock
Author's Response: Thanks, glad you liked the Sorting Hat song. I'm so relieved! I was worried about it. As for Harry and Ginny visiting Ron and Hermione, check out the next chapter! There won't be any bathtub action, but they'll be there visiting. For a specific purpose :)
well, no point in guessing, since there's already a winner, but my guess is that charlie and hagrid will be taking care of the dragon, cant wait for the nect chapter
Author's Response: Sorry about that! Like I said to Burrowbrat, keep an eye out for more contests! This particular dragon will not be in the care of Hagrid and Charlie. You'll have to see what I mean when I post chapter 8 :)
The incantations were very cool. I was glad to see the wands and amulet back from CoC. And Luna, what can I say? Good chapter, can't wait for the next one, you evil cliffie maker you!
Author's Response: There will be more CoC references in the next chapter (a little Milius anyone?) And again with the calling me an evil cliffie maker! Are you guys like, in a club or something? :)
Very nice cliffhanger. Can't wait to read the next chapter, especially to see what happened to the amazing bouncing ferret.
Author's Response: YAY!! A new reviewer!! Glad you are reading my story!
'Moine must be thrilled to have won another house-elf over to her side, glad to see Zeppie wearing clothes. I also love the fact that you've made Ron into a raging hormone, especially after seeing the pj's. Onto the next chapter!
Author's Response: Yeah, I'm having lots of fun writing Ron now that he's admitted his true feelings to Hermione :) Hope you enjoy the rest!
Ok, I know they were drinking because they have their hands tied and can't get Hermione or Luna back, but I had to laugh at Draco and Ron's antics. Personally, I make motorcycle noises when I drink fire whiskey. *demonstrates by turning handlebars and going VROOM VROOM* And an evil cliffie! Hermione gone from the picture, and no mention of Greyback!
Author's Response: It\'s okay. I meant for you to laugh at their antics. I like to be a train when indulging in the old Ogden\'s. *choo choo!!!!!* Sorry about the cliff. You okay down there? I\'m afraid the next chapter also has a bit of a drop off at the end, so you may want to bring climbing gear when you read it :)
Oooh, a Chastity Charm! I wonder if Molly put it on the ring, or on Ron and Hermione? Great chapter, especially the thongs! He he he!
Author's Response: Ha....yes...it's on the ring (as you read in chapter 12). Glad you liked the thong incident :)
