So Xiao Feng is so magical she can actually heal at will! Impressive!!
I like this character very much... She seems so fiercely determined to do great things!!
I like the secret around her. She seems rahter distant from the people around her for a ten year old... That's probably why she hasn't noticed there's something odd with fixing broken ankles at will!
I long to see where this goes!! Kudos!
Summary: A chance encounter in the dungeons results in Hermione finding herself feeling sorry for Snape, who has become an outcast since the events at the end of HBP. She is now of age and a full member of the Order. The encounter causes Hermione to want to help Snape with his spying duties. But Snape won't accept Hermione's help or friendship. But their paths keep crossing. AU in the sense that it ignores DH.
Hehehehe... Yes, please, by all means, let's get Snape comfly tucked up in bed. Will he have a goodnight kiss too? Poor thing has had such a rough night after all? *evil smile* I'm enjoying this so much... I can NOT wait to see how will things unfold...
Talk about high voltage chapter uh?
Snuggled up in a murky secret passage feeling up Snape... albeit for strickly professional reasons... I'd bet tention could have been cut with a butter knife!! And that much was palpable from your writing.
I wonder who is it stumbling into them!? Someone good? Order member? Malfoy and goons? Curious!!
Keep up the good work! ^.^
Niiiiiice.... I like where this is going!!
I've always liked Snape and thought he was not evil. But I'd never thought about how lonely he must have felt after Albus died... That' so truth!
I wonder what he'll do when Hermione gives him the Secrecy Sensor... Interesting!! I supose he's in dire need of a friendly face... poor chap! Good story!
Author's Response: Thanks for your reviews. I am glad you could tell there was tension in the tunnel, thats what I was going for. It makes me happy to know that my writing was effective. You'll find out soon who is in the tunnel :>)
Summary: The right one isn't always the one we want or think it will be
Pairings: Harry/Pansy; Draco/Hermione; Ron/Luna
LOL! Unseemingly relationships, but quite fun to read about!! Well writen and very funny!!!
Author's Response: Thank you for reading =] I had fun writing these odd relationships. =]
Summary: Peter Pettigrew has fallen hard for a girl. The only trouble is, she's not his usual type...or any guy's usual type, for that matter...
“No, Remus. I like her, like her. A lot.”
“Well, you’ve got eyes, Pete. Have they been checked recently?”
Nice one! I really liked it!
I can relate to Remus sooo much in this chap! The begining whne Peter was interrupting him and all he wanted to do was read!!! ^_^
And his way of having Peter declare to Janie was superb!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for 1) taking the time to read and review and 2) giving me my second review on here! I know, right?? I was in the middle of a really good book the other day when my friend kept texting me. I finally just stopped replying. (: Oops? Haha I'm glad you liked that surprise at the end. I've had that scenario floating around in my head fr a bit, and I just didn't have the right characters for it. When I started writing this fic, it sort of took on a life of its own, and eventually it turned out nothing like what I had originally planned, but this ending that had been floating around all of a sudden fit brilliantly into the story. I love it when stories write themselves for you! Again, thanks so much for your time! It means so, so much and I really appreciate it.
Summary: Four years after the Battle, a strange desire draws Hermione Granger. What could possibly make her visit Malfoy Manor?
BRI LLI ANT!!!!!
Standing ovation!! Really, really, really good!!! All of it!!
Author's Response: Thank you. N
As a part of his punishment for his part in the war, Draco was sentenced to a year living as a Muggle in the Muggle world. Harry ropes Hermione into serving as Draco's liaison with the Ministry and guide to the Muggle world. Can she open his eyes to the joys of Muggle living or will she Avada him first? Set post-DH, ignores epilogue.
I'm reallyglad you included the Harry/Luna scene. I'ts nice to have some of them thrown into the story. And their relationship seems simply lovely!!! ^.^
As fot Draco's antics... I was snorting along with Hermione!!! Great chap! And good one on the locking charms. I'm glad Herms didn't let that one pass!
Author's Response: Expect more Harry/Luna. I think they give a sense of normalcy (normal and Luna?!) to the story around all of the strife that will be around for the Draco, Hermione, and Ron stuff. I completely identify with Hermione, so a lot of how she responds to the stuff around her will be similar to how I would, but altered so as to be in character. And writing from Draco's POV about Muggle stuff is difficult, because I have to look at things that I use every day as if I had never heard of or seen them before, like his dishwasher/dish washer mix-up.
Evolving nicely. I liked VERY much the flashback to the wedding. And I get the feeling you're capturing lovely the relations between Hermine and her boys. (Harry, Ron and Draco)
The drooling part was gross. Waking up every morning with liquid on my hair... Disgusting!! Poor Herms...
Author's Response: Thank you; I enjoyed writing the flashback. I agree that it was gross, but it's little things like that which provide real detail to the story and Ron and Hermione's homelife.
I personally think that a total 180 with Pansy, might be a little too much. Especially having Ginny go along with it. She strikes me as way too headstrong and stubborn to accept someone has changed just because Hermione says so... But then again, people grown, people change.
As for the rest, I totally smell the rat with Zabini and the redhead... And, if I may say so, never rat has smelt so succulent! LOL!
BTW, Draco's evil plans of shagging and leaving are so ferret-like! The little brat! I hope Hermione gives him a run for his galleons!! You show him girl!
Summary: When searching the Riddle House for Horcruxes, Hermione comes across a blank, seemingly harmless, diary, and a mysterious key hidden in a bureau. When she later discovers that the "harmless" diary is really Tom Riddle's diary, she vows to never write in it again, but when a reckless plan forms in her head to help her, Harry, and Ron find the rest of the Horcruxes, she breaks that vow. Will Hermione Jean Granger, the brightest witch of her age, manage to best Tom Marvolo Riddle, one of the darkest and most powerful wizards alive? ...Or will he beat her at her own game, and successfully ensnare her with the power of the diary? Hermione Granger/Tom Riddle. Mostly compliant with Book Seven, but the AU warning is there just in case.
Uhm... I kind of like it, but I am just not entirely convinced on Hermione writing so openly, and, of course, such importnat matters (being on Voldy's tracks, giving names, hunting Horcruxes) on something that Voldy left behind!! It seems simply so reckless!!
I'd buy it if they talked it through and wrote purposefully, suspecting they might get info out of it... But not openly like that... And without telling the guys!!
Other than that, I like it. Interesting the way Hermione gets thoroughly annoyed by Ron, but still admits there's more than a friendship going on with him... or she thinks so... I liked that detail... I want to see how this story goes on...
Author's Response: Thank you for the review! ...And you are my first reviewer, too! I do see your point about Hermione writing in the diary so openly, and, I'll admit, it's not exactly the most believable thing in the world, but they (meaning Tom and Hermione) have to meet somehow. Also, Hermione is absolutely sure that it wasn't Riddle's diary, and in her arrogance (I mean, Hermione is almost never wrong about anything, so why would this be any different?), she was, uncharacteristically, reckless. As for her telling the guys, she does, but it's in the next chapter, which I have literally just submitted to the queue. Sorry, I know that I sound defensive, but I'm really not. You had a very valid point, and I just wish that I would have thought of it sooner, so thanks for pointing that out. Again, thank you for taking the time to review!
I'm positively happt about making sure to make it a SLOW moving Hermione/Tom. Otherwise, it'd be simply impossible. There has to be a real storyline for it to work. After all, this is Riddle we're talking about! So, as far as this reader goes, feel free to take it nice and easy!
I liked Voldy's innitial ramble about Hermione trying to pull his let! That was quite fun!! I really want to see where this all leads!
Also, the Ron/Hermione is pretty ok! Good story! Enjoyable chapter!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review (yes, I know that I say that every time, but I really do mean it)! It's good to know that Tom's rambling (or plotting and scheming--Bwahaha!!! lol) was fun to read, because it was really fun to write (I love writing from Tom/Voldemort's POV, for some reason), and I was hoping that it would be equally entertaining to read. I, too, think that slow-moving Tomione fics are the best, as they tend to be the most believable, so it's nice to know that at least one person won't get frustrated wtih the pacing (although the same thing cannot be said for my updates on FFN for this story--I haven't updated this story since March on there, and that is my primary site), despite the fact that I try to make the chapters themselves interesting. I am not sure if I want to post my other stories on here or not, but while I am making up my mind on that, you can always go to FanFiction. Net, and read my other two stories (under the same penname), if you are interested, of course. They are both about Tom Riddle (I am obsessed with his character, and I have somewhat of an unhealthy crush on him. It's really sad.) Yes, I know, I am shamelessly pimping my other stories. Sorry.... I am going to end my ridiculously long reply here. So, thank you so very much for both reading and reviewing!!! :)
I LOVED Hermione's slashing words at Riddle! That was brilliant, and almost surely the only time that prick EVER got talked back and did not get to torture whoever did the talking. I think I'd copy chick lit on that journal, or poetry or sth equally girly just for the sake of annoying Tom out of hs skull!! LOL! Making cartoons of Harry killing him would be nice as well!! Hehehe!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! That's a good idea! It would be hilarious if Hermione wrote girly poetry in the diary ( like, about how much she loves Ron, or something). I am not sure if I can put something like that in the story with the direction that it's headed, but I will if possible. ... Or maybe making annoying anagrams of his name would be a good way to go.... ;)
The key of great value is interesting... But totally clueless as to what it might open. The name's going to be a taboo soon and the trio is still using the name. This is going to be tricky for them.
But I'm just dying to know that Tom responded to Hermione's rant!! I really, really am!! Waiting for the next chap!!
Author's Response: You will eventually find out what it opens (obviously), but it will definitely be a while. I will probably drop hints in the story here and there, but that's about it. Tom doesn't respond to Hermione's rant at all, so I'm sorry to disappoint. I will probably wait a day or two to post chapter 5, but it's the last chapter that I have written so far. That means that after it's posted, updates will not happen very frequently. By the way, thank you for another review! It certainly made my day!
Alrighty, I very much like the way this is going!!
I think the alias for Herms is oddly fitting!!
I think it just might work, you know, squeezing info out of Tom... I mean, he tends to overly underestimate people he deems inferior... so if he thinks he's dealing with a silly 7th year girl... he might spill info!
Good idea Herms... But is she going to keep that a secret from Harry and Ron?
Author's Response: Wow. Three reviews from you in the same day! Thank you so much!!! Yes, she is going to keep it a secret, because she knows that both Harry and Ron would stop her, even if she explained what she was doing. Otherwise, I am pretty sure that Hermione would tell them, but she knows that they would never understand or that there was a slight chance that they would, and she does not want to take that chance. You're right, Tom does tend to underestimate people he deems inferior, so Hermione is using that weakness to her advantage, but will it work? You'll find out in the next chapter when I post it. (Yes, it's already written, but I am going to be an evil author and wait a day or two before I post.) ;)
Summary: Lord Voldemort rewards those who show their unwavering loyalty... and where Bellatrix Lestrange is concerned, he can make it a reward for himself as well.
One-shot, contains torture and strong sexual content.
It was impeccably writen. And so so so very much creepy!!
I think a moment like this might have easily happened. Especially the abuse that followed. I mean, nothing good can ever come out of Voldemort, Bellatrix should have known better. OR, considering she's the nutjob she is, she might enjoy that as well...
I'd say I'm sorry for her. But... it's Bellatrix. She was actually awaiting that eagerly!! So... I guess she got what she wanted!
I think your writing was good. The sensual part was extremely good, as it got me sitting on the edge of my seat and I had to constantly remind myself that this was Voldemort and Bellatrix we were talking about! I am supposed to feel repulsed and icky and icky about them, not steamy and sexy!! So, good job!! ^.^
Author's Response: Thanks so much! It's great to hear something like that from a reader. I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)
Summary: Harry is about to leave the Burrow for the final time when his six doppelgangers give him something to think about. Set during book seven and based on the chapter of the same name, but having little to do with it, really.
Winner, Quicksilver Quill award for Best Humour story.
The idea was as superb as the "stay in canon, stay in canon"! Hillarious, and yet quite deep.
I think Drunk, Dirty and Angst were my favourites.SuperHarry was a bit annoying, actually! AngryHarry is just a classic, by now. But Angst, "I can't even spell!"
I really liked this!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm so glad you are laughing! And I've very happy you enjoyed this look at Harry's other personas. I actually think SuperHarry might be closest to his real personality - he does have a bit of a hero complex after all. But exaggerating it does make it a bit annoying, lol. Thanks again, I really appreciate it! ~Gina :)
Summary: What if the characters in the Harry Potter films were portrayedâ€”not by actorsâ€”but by the book versions of themselves, as created by Rowling? How might things unfold on that set? What would the characters think of the changes made from the stories theyâ€™d already lived outâ€¦ to the ones written for the script?
This fic is a series of one-shots, posted as chapters, each from the perspective of a different character who is dealing with the changes occurring between the book and the script.
Holy Movie Canon, Batman! This fic won the 2011 Quicksilver Quill Award for Best Chaptered Humor Story. Thanks so, so much!
LOL!! Soooooooooo very much funny. And so true btw. That bit of the movie was awfully, painfully OC!!
Author's Response: I know, right? I can't believe no one on the set or in the process bothered to say, "Um, actually Harry's no good with girls." *sigh* I'm so glad you are enjoying the fic, though! Thanks for the review!
Over fifty people died at the Battle of Hogwarts. There are dozens of stories of loss, betrayal, heroism and sacrifice. These are some of those stories.
Nominated for: Best General (Chaptered) story – Quicksilver Quills 2011
That certainly allowed for some serious laughing. Ginny's bit was particularly good, and her witticism superb!
I think it was very much in character that Draco, even though in the middle of the frail, with little knowledge of which side was winning and lost as a Turquish in hte middle of deep fogs was STILL trying to take advantage in a sneaky, unethical way (eavesdroping on Nev and Ginny)
Did I mention your description of Ginny was really really good?
Author's Response: Thanks. Writing this chapter finally allowed me to get a decent handle on Draco. I have had many differences of opinions with Draco fans who (mistakenly in my opinion) believe that he can be redeemed. Draco is amoral (without morals) not immoral. He will do what he believes is best for him (provided that he can get away with it). I enjoyed writing the Ginny encounter so much that it will reappear (from Neville’s point of view) in chapter 21: Snakeslayer. -N-
