I love to read I'm addicted to stories.
I am writting a little but I'm unsure if it good enough to inflict on anyone yet.

Senses by Gryffinpuff
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 569]

Summary: Sense: a word of so many meanings. This is a story about senses. The common sense notion of self preservation that is lost when friends are in need, the senses of the body that can be damaged so easily, and the intuitive senses of the heart that tell you when things have changed. R/Hr focused with a little bit of H/G, not a lot of fluff, with rotating views between the characters on a truly horrific day.

Summary: The war is over, the battles have been won. Hermione, Ron and Harry are settling down into a world without Voldemort, and for once in their lives, everything is going smoothly.

Until they travel to Australia to find Hermione's parents. As experienced as they are, nothing could prepare them for this - kangaroos, the scorching sun, a Wizarding community completely different from theirs, and one little problem no one was expecting ...

So far so good but it's too easy the finding of Hm's parents. You could have at least had made it necessary for the trio to investagate the other Wilkins

Author's Response: Thanks. And keep in mind that they haven't actually found them yet, so you shouldn't really start judging my story when you don't know what is going to happen next.


Our Little Secret by Kerichi
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 416]

Summary: Past Featured Story

It was like a wizard tale. The clever Slytherin helps a hag who later repays the debt. Except that Rose Weasley wasn't a hag, and Scorpius didn't expect to call in the favour.

Date: 10/07/09 Title: Chapter 1: Prologue

Interesting start but who is Ella's mom? and who is Dandelion's Dad?

Author's Response: Ella's mom was a Muggle girl who was stupid enough to sleep with Dudley, which is pretty much all you need to know about her. She wasn't a particularly bad person, but she wasn't a particularly good one, either. She just was a rather typical teenage girl who had a baby and was rather scared. I really haven't thought about Dandelion's dad too much, to be honest. I'm sure Dandelion must wonder about him, and I'll have to include that at some point to make the story realistic. However, I want this story to be about a Muggle-born girl discovering the magical world and her talents, not the rather cliched plot about a teenager discovering a long-lost parent. I expect nobody but Ella (not even me!) will know his identity.

Author's Response:

Hello Dagmar Beck,

glad you had a good belly laugh :) The thought of Augusta and the twins teaming up against anyone is precious; but against Rita Skeeter ... it was just irresistible! That woman has annoyed me forever, and she absolutely deserved what she got!


Thanks for R & R-ing,

Kara's Aunty :)




Rose used a blank journal to list practical information about the boy she intended to bring home for holiday and pass off as her boyfriend: Scorpius’ favourite colour, his favourite food. As their pretend relationship became real, the entries became longer and more intimate. And then one day—to her horror—she misplaced the journal.

Thank you even though as you say its not as lighthearted as the first one. I like the unusual friendship of George and Augusta and how you use it to save George. Well Done

Author's Response:

Hello Dagmar Beck,

this one is a little bit darker, isn't it? Not surprising, given the subject matter, I suppose.  Augusta was a bit of an unusual choice to help George, but I imagined that he would be too torn to accept the comfort of his family, given that he knew his very appearance would always remind them of Fred.  What he needed was someone outside the family circle to make him see sense, and as he'd already struck up a tenuous friendship with Neville's Gran, the sensible old matriarch seemed to be the ideal candidate for the job. Plus they have something in common: they've both lost a part of themselves, whether in body (Fred) or spirit (Frank).


I'm really glad you enjoyed the fic! Thanks very much for R & R-ing,

 Kara's Aunty :)



Summary: Past Featured Story

"James Sirius Potter, it is the judgment of the Wizengamot that you have been found guilty. You knowingly, in possession of sound mind and body, used the Cruciatus Curse and the Killing Curse in the intentional torture and murder of one Gregory Goyle the Third."

James Potter was going to Azkaban for the rest of his natural life, and his whole family was in shambles. His wife and child have fled the country, his sister was missing, and his parents were a wreck. However, James knew that he had larger problems: his guilt was coming more and more in question.

Though he knew that James was withholding information about the circumstances of the murder of which he had been found guilty, Harry had secrets of his own; however, even he could not handle this torrent of trouble alone. Can Harry trust his darkest confidences to anyone? Even family? 

How will the Potter clan stop the downward spiral into pain and disaster, and can they recover what they've lost?

I have really enjoied this story. You did a few things I didn't like but over all a good read. 8/10

Author's Response:

Hi there. :)

Thanks for reviewing, and I'm glad you liked the story. I know not every story can please anyone 100%. There's always something that someone would have liked to see done differently. From most of the feedback that I've received for this story, the number one problem that people have had with it is me breaking apart Harry and ginny. I will say, in my defense, that there is a tremendous amount of back story to that, but that part of the timeline hasn't been written yet. I just wanted to let you know that I didn't do that for the hell of it; there were legitimate reasons for it, and I still stand by that.

If the parts you didn't like were something else, I'd be interested to know what they are. There are many rough patches in this story, as it is the first thing that I've ever written. If you would like to leave a more detailed response, feel free to leave a second review. Yes, I pay attention to everyone's suggestions, and all reader feedback to me is extremely valuable, good or bad. 

Thanks for reading again, and have a great rest of the day!

Take care and happy reading,
