If you look at the family tree on Jo's website it is clearly Asteria because, in all the other names on it that you already know her o's are clearly o's so it has to be an e just compare it and you will see what I mean! Also if you look up the names Asteria and Astoria, Asteria is the daughter of the Titan Coeus in greek mythology (and Hyperion, her and Malfoy's sons middle name, is the name of one of the Titans) while Astoria only comes up as the name of towns and other random things like that, so knowing that Jo's names always have meaning to them there is no doubt that her name is Asteria and not Astoria!
I really enjoyed your story!
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 really like this relationship that is budding with Lyra and Nott. Also Draco was still somewhat himself at this point so I think it is fine that Draco tormented her.
Author's Response: Thanks! And I'm happy you think the Draco part was okay. Thanks for the review. I hope you keep reading! :)
Sorry I was not trying to be nit picky it is just that most people don't think about it to much but I am one of those kind of people that make sure I back my reasoning with research so when people started saying it was Astoria and not Asteria I did my research and that is what I found and you have to agree that J.K. does not usually name her characters something that does not mean anything there is always some background for all her names. But then I guess it could just be me I pay to much attention to every detail and probably shouldn't. Lol because there is something wrong on the family tree thing but it is not Asteria's name it is the year Fred dies it should say 1998 not 1997 lol. Sorry for babbling! I will leave you alone now.
Author's Response: Believe me, it bugged me to no end whether her name was Asteria or Astoria, since it wasn't clear. But I was revising at midnight and rather quickly, so I just went with what I remembered being the popular choice after DH and the family tree came out. Anyway, I know you're not the only HP fan who pays attention to details :D HP fans are great at catching the little things--you know how stuff would be mentioned in one book and then be really important later? Anyway, I like Asteria better and I plan on changing it back. Now I'm babbling :) Thanks for the input.
No problem my pleasure! It was nice talking with you! : )
Author's Response: Same here!
Good chapter, and I did not get a notifacation for the last chapter as far as I can remember.
Author's Response: Thank you! I guess the notification email didn't get sent.
I just want to say Theodore is a coward not quite as bad as Draco but a coward none the less!
Yes, he is a coward :P He's afraid of his father and Voldemort. You'll see what happens soon :)
I agree the Trio is always out and about at night as well so it makes perfect sense!
Thanks! That's good. Sometimes I have to justify things a little to make the story work.
Good I hope he realizes how stupid he is being!
Author's Response: Haha, he will. I think you'll like the next chapter.
I really like the relationship between these two outcast, and I also like how you have developed these characters!
Author's Response: Thank you! There is more to come between the two.
I can't wait!
Author's Response: Shouldn't be too long...I'll fix up the next chapter once my final exams are over : / Hold on tight :)
NOOOOOOO!! Darn guys always messing with our emotions!
Author's Response: I know, right? Unfortunately this is how Lyra and Theodore will be...for now :P There's still much more to come, so keep reading! Thanks for reviewing!
FYI Malfoy's wife is Asteria not Astoria. I know this because J.K. does not name a character without having background so if you look up Astoria it is just the name of some buildings and streets and stuff where as Asteria is the name of the daughter of a Titan just as Scorpius's middle name Hyperion is the name of a Titan. Also it makes me sad that you made Scorpius as bad as his father and grandfather I see him being better then them and falling in love with Rose (but I guess on that part it is all about what you want to imagine). All in all not bad though, definitely better than I could do!
Author's Response: I actually had her name as 'Asteria' in my first draft because that's what it says on JKR's family tree, but most HP resources can't agree on whether it's 'Asteria' or 'Astoria,' and 'Astoria' seems to be the popular pick for some reason. I might change it back, though. It is definitely up to the reader to imagine what happens to the next generation of characters, and since in my fic Draco continues to hate Lyra and her family, he raises his son to do the same :-/ Thanks for the review and for sticking to the story until the end!
Very good story! You can really feel all the emotions!
Very interesting! A little depressing, but I can see it after all superheroes usually create there own arch enemies.
This story is very sweet! I love how you stay true to Harry's Character! He is such a genuinely good guy! You don't find many like him!
Scorpius had never looked forward to anything the way he looked forward to leaving Hogwarts with Rose. He planned a holiday with no friends, no family, and nothing to do but be together‚Ä”until a tampered Portkey changed their destination.
First I just have to say that Lost is an awesome show my favorite in fact! So Props for combining 2 of my all time favorite things Harry Potter and Lost! And second great job so far! I can not wait for the next chapter! And good luck with your puppy! : )
Author's Response: I'm glad you like the idea! Don't the plots shift like crazy on that show. I remember reading something about each character having a parallel life. I can't imagine trying to balance all that, so props to the writers! Thanks for wishing me luck. Courage is a sweetie, and he will definitely work for food, so he learns cute tricks, but geez, he tries to eat everything! I think labs must be part goat. :D
The parallel life thing is only in this last season but it is pretty easy to keep things straight if you have been watching the show from the beginning like I have!
My only experience with labs is what I have seen on the movie "Marley and Me" but from what I gather they definitely like to chew stuff up but are very loyal dogs.
Is this the final season, is that why there's the parallel life plot? I do admire the writers (and the viewers!) for keeping multiple plot lines straight.
Oh yeah, labs are chewers, so yay for chew toys! :D
Yeah, it's the final season!
Author's Response: Then I can't blame them for wanting to pull out all the stops with the storyline. :)
