I currently live in the great state of South Dakota. Why do I live in a place with such nasty winters, I don't know. Since most of my family lives far away in more exotic places than I do, my life revolves around my four dogs, Sampson, Raphael, Seamus, and Mayhem. They are a min-pin, a toy poodle, a teacup Malti-Poo, and a Great Dane, respectively.
I've always had a fascination with the mental illness aspect that characterizes Bellatrix Black Lestrange. My first story is her story. On one site I was sorted into Ravenclaw but I think the hat made a mistake. Most days I feel like a Slytherin!
Summary: It's Molly Prewett's fifth year - and her and the lovable-but-odd Arthur Weasley have been made Gryffindor Prefects. Molly begins to wonder if there's more to the way Arthur feels about her than she's ever realized.
How sweet. I can see how Arthur would be very annoying but also endearing with his "crazy" love of all things muggle. I just smiled at his description of his visit to a muggle art museum. I thought I'd try out some of the featured stories. That's how I discovered my very favorite author, Kerichi. Great start to what promises to be a very sweet story.
Aww--that was so sweet. I'm beginning to think that Maeve is mean and rude. To think that Arthur already knows he wants seven children and he's not afraid to say it:P It's funny--young Alastor already sounds like older Alastor. Great chapter.
When I pictured Amos Diggory all I could think of was Rob Pattinson:D Maeve is so mean. I suppose she means well--she did say she didn't want Molly to go out with Arthur out of pity but who's to say that's the reason? I hate to think of poor Arthur with hurt feelings. I can understand though--Arthur's the steady, kind, and weird guy who probably no one wants to date--you know, the nice guy who finishes last. Even Shane seems confused by Maeve's actions. Great chapter.
Why is it we sometimes hate to accept that the obvious is true? So it sounds like Amos was a pretty boy but a little too caught up with himself. I think Shane and Arthur are better friends than it looked at first. Shane seems to have Arthur's best interests at heart. Great chapter.
I'm getting ready to slap some sense into Arthur. He's been given all of these opportunities to talk to Molly but he just can't do it. Geez, even when Molly outright asked him if he had something to say he couldn't say anything. I'm thinking that Molly will take matters into her own hands pretty soon. Great chapter.
It was interesting to see the young Lucius Malfoy and Narcissa Black. Andromeda too--you don't usually hear a lot about her. Geez Arthur--do we have to knock you down and drag your interest in Molly out of you:P I liked Maeve's statement at the beginning--something to the effect of "we'll just have to try harder next time." Great chapter.
They stayed out half the night and Arthur still can't tell Molly how he feels! I think she should just go with the flow--maybe he's never going to tell her how he feels:D Some guys are like that. The part I liked best was the Quidditch commentary--what was it the Banshee Strategy?? Great chapter.
It's funny to think of Arthur as being so shy now but going on to have seven children with Molly. And, those children certainly weren't shy. This is such a nice look at Arthur and Molly when they were younger. Since so little is written on this topic it would seem to be fertile ground for many authors. Great chapter.
I still want to shake Arthur. Why did he think Molly had the responsibility of saying something? Arthur's just assuming stuff and you know what they say about that:D Great chapter.
How sweet!! Now we know where William and Fred and George got their names. I really enjoyed this story. I'm glad it was featured or I probably never would've found it. Great chapter.

This story is newly edited as of 25/3/2009!!
The sequel to this fic has been posted, it is titled Harry Potter and the Unspeakable Power. The spin off stories One Life Owed and The Night That Started It All are also available.
This was written in the aftermath of OOTP. Events of HBP and DH not included.
I'm glad Harry is able to put his memories into a pensieve and sleep better. And I'm glad they're reforming the DA, legally this time. Great chapter.
I was afraid for a minute that Harry would be a gentleman and let Cho have the snitch--but I guess all's fair in quidditch. I liked Dumbledore's approach to legilimency--much trickier. Great chapter.
I don't understand why everyone was getting so angry at Harry. Basically, Ellie just blurted out that Halloween was the anniversary of his parents' deaths. He had every right to be upset. Great chapter.
Well, that wasn't as bad as I expected. That would make Harry and Ellie cousins. I know I can be really dense sometimes, but I don't see why this is a problem, other than that Ellie and everybody else neglected to tell Harry that he had a cousin. Great chapter.
That does explain why this book is called The Girl Who Lived. I guess I just kind of went along and trusted that it would all be explained in time. Excellent chapter.
For some reason I really like Howlers--I just like the concept and when someone receives one I think it's kind of funny. So, that being said, I like the concept of the opposite of a Howler almost better. Excellent chapter. But, I'm wondering what's going to go wrong for Harry.
Wow--the Weasleys narrowly escaped. But, when did the Weasleys leave the Burrow? They said they hadn't been there for months. This reminds me of a scene from HBP when Death Eaters started the Burrow on fire. Excellent chapter.
I didn't think it was too bad of a song. Didn't JKR herself write "Weasley is Our King?" It seems as if Ellie has some sort of mental connection with Harry. Great chapter.
Poor Severus--How did he ever get involved with the two women who married Potter men and then become indebted to them. You have to wonder why he did this to himself. Great chapter.
That was wonderful. I always like reading about Christmas balls. I agree that the world needs a little madness as long as it's happy, creative madness. Great chapter.
