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!

The Daughter of Light by Magical Maeve

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: An Irish witch languishes in the darkness of her family home, confined by her father and circumstances. What will it take to bring her out of this exile? The chance to return to Hogwarts? The opportunity to participate in the fight against Voldemort and his Death Eaters? Or will it be Severus Snape, a man she did not expect to see again in her lifetime?

This is canon compliant to OoTP but written pre-HBP.

Reviews and constructive criticism are most welcome, and thanks go to Ashwinder who kindly beta read the chapters for me. :-)

I hope you explain what happened to Maeve's fingers. I hope it wasn't slightly connected to the potion Hermione had prepared. How could they take such a risk with Remus' life.

Did you really just kill Remus? So Hermione's potion did nothing?

That was kind of a good idea, to bring Ron instead of Harry. Although there is always the thought that Voldemort would try to get to Harry through Ron or Hermione or even Ginny. Maybe Voldemort hasn't thought of that yet. I wish Ron and Maeve luck. They have the advantage also of Harry knowing where they are.

Thank you for not killing Remus although he probably wishes he were dead at the moment. I didn't realize that Bella and Roderick were friends or should I say frenemies.

That was nice of you to have Severus kiss Maeve. I love Snape as a character but I think I love him even more now. I'm curious to see how the kiss will transform their relationship if it does.

Wow, I wonder who was in Maeve's room. And who is with Alice Longbottom that she feels afraid? And where is Maeve? Things are getting interesting.

I think Harry has to become less sensitive to what Maeve is doing. I do have the advantage, though, of knowing that Severus is a good guy and maybe Harry doesn't know that yet.

I never have trusted Roderick. He just doesn't seem like an Auror. Plus, his "friendship" with Bellatrix is a little suspicious. I can't wait until you explain a little more about him and Alice Longbottom.

Wow! Good for Neville. I'm proud of him for standing up for Maeve. And good for both Severus and Maeve finally sleeping together.

Now what's Roderick up to? You do a really good job of writing cliffhangers at the end of your chapters. It's a good story but with the cliffhangers I feel strongly about reading further.

Doesn't Dumbledore know that sometimes it's best to just keep your mouth shut? Even if someone begs you to tell them something, you still have to weigh the request against the consequences.

I can't believe that Lucius left his son behind. Neville is turning into quite the hero. I think that's because he's a better wizard than anyone expects him to be. He's more dangerous that way. People expect someone weak and they get someone much stronger.

That was a big surprise, Maeve proposing to Severus. He's still awfully cranky but I guess you can't expect someone to change overnight especially someone like Severus.

Harry is certainly taking chances. Who knows? Maybe he'll be of some use to Severus. Now if they can just find Maeve and Remus on time.

I can't decide if this is good or bad having all of these people in the basement corridor. Maybe they'll easily get rid of Niall at least.

Bellatrix kind of went out with a sad little squeak. I guess that's what happens when you're so arrogant about your power. It was a very positive omen when Maeve and Remus found the vapor bottles.

I somehow don't think Roderick is dead. He's very tricky. I expect him to show up somewhere, somehow. If I were Maeve I would've felt really bad to see my large beautiful home fall like that.

Maeve's father seems kind of arrogant and obnoxious. I don't know how immortals figure out the fairness of things but it seems like all of them were on vacation there for a while and not thinking about the consequences of their plan.

I don't know what happened. I forgot I was reading this story. I was busy with judging in the QSQ Awards and just forgot. Now I plan to get back to it. Too bad about Bill and Arthur.

I don't know how I feel about Maeve turning her wedding over to Dumbledore to organize. Hopefully he has some idea of what to do.
