Summary: Clariss Flint has always thought herself a normal teenage girl who attends Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. However, during her sixth year at Hogwarts she begins to experience flashbacks to the past, where she experiances the life of Miss Ara Grey, a girl who attended Hogwarts in the seventeenth century. Clariss uncovers Ara's dangerous affair with the handsome Potions Master of the time, and as she becomes more and more involved with discovering what happened to the lovers, she notices that their lives are incredibly similar. Clariss begins to find love of her own at Hogwarts, and an ultimatum leads her to discover just how much the dead can influence the living.
I just stumbled across your story this morning and read all 8 chapters! I'm hooked! I love that it's a story with Potter's in it, but they aren't the main characters! I love Clariss, she's very relatable and I love how your portraying Lily as her friend! I can't wait for more and to see how you take the story from here! It's also a pleasant suprise to come across a new character and hear their last names and recognize them as so and so's kids! It's a bit like a class reunion! Well done!
Summary: In the aftermath of the Hogwarts’ battle, Draco Malfoy is interned at Godric’s Hollow under the vigilant eye of Ginny Weasley. While Harry and the Order convene to decide on Draco’s fate, an unlikely bond is formed between captor and captive.
Nice. I like the course of things, so many of the others just force the characters into a relationship, but you are taking the time to develop them!
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm glad it's not going too fast or too slow. ^_^ It's a real pleasure writing this story and receiving wonderful reviews like yours. ^^

Twins spawn from the Dark Lord himself and a daughter of an ex-Death Eater. Together they are the Youngest Death Eaters. Forced into a life because of their heritage but who are they truly? Who are they faithful to, light or dark?
Love it! Best chapter on the two of them so far! Can't wait for more!!
Nice! Can't wait for more!
If I haven't said it before, I love, LOVE, the exchanges between Snape and Destiny!! amazing! They make me giggle! Can't wait to see were the
Moon twins go now!
Oh good!! I was worried for a second about the twins, but this is great!! After this one is over, will you be putting them into the other stories?
Author's Response: Oh yes, I have already planned on writing seven stories in the series; one for each of the years at Hogwarts. I also may write one more about the years after Voldemort's downfall. I hope to start posting my second year in a month or so after I complete the first.
I love it! Not so patiently waiting for the next chapter!! Can't wait to hear about Destiny and Snape or what houses they all end up in!
Author's Response: Yeah I'm sorry about the delays lol. They just keep finding things wrong with my choice of writing. Hopefully as I write more I won't have so many problems and they'll validate them quicker. By the way House sorting will come in chapter 7, which I'm still writing.
I like it! It rolls very well with the original!Slazar better make his move quick! :)
Love it! Just so I'm following, then this part happens before Halloween and right after the broom incident?
Author's Response: Yea, you're following correctly. I hope the future chapters will help you more.
Seriously? Just like that, they bend to daddy's will?
Author's Response: Don't worry, I have a few tricks up my sleeve. Or should I say the Moon Twins do.
I love this chapter! I love the interaction between Snape and Destiny! Very good! There will be so much more of them later right?! One thing confuses me though. Destiny mentions that the Moon twins are two years older than her? That makes them 13 not 11 and they should have been at Hogwarts two years earlier. Did I miss something?
Author's Response: No, you didn't miss anything. The way it works out is that, in years, the twins are only a year older. Destiny starts at Hogwarts as an eleven year old and the Moon Twins are twelve soon after the first of September. You see, Destiny was born on January 2, 1980 and the twins birth month is November 7, 1979, so in months, they are closer to two years. Therefore, Destiny always sees them as 'nearly two years older' because it is her way of reasoning to herself about why the twins are so different. No matter what she may say to others, she hasn't fully understand why the twins are so cold and distant, so subconsciously, she believes it is because they're older and have seen and heard so much more than her. Oh, and about Destiny and Snape, yes. Severus has always been my favorite character, so I will be using him in the story a lot and most of the time it is with Destiny.
Salazar likes Destiny?! Ooolala!! Can't wait for more! Christmas with the Snapes?
I don't know if it's true, but in my mind, Severus's mother and father are both dead, which is why Snape is always seen at Hogwarts during Christmas or any holiday for that matter. And, since Severus is a very closed off person, I want to make it appear that holidays are a hard time for him because he's not a festive person by nature.
That being said, I only give a little bit of Christmas Day in the story. Also, I don't really give Severus any lines on Christmas, but I think you will like what he gives Destiny for her present. (It sort of gives an insight on their future relationship :) I don't think it's hard to imagine that Severus has a hard time talking to Destiny about certain things.)
Then, the rest of Christmas Day is implied in the story, mostly because Destiny's birthday is in January. Instead of making a big getting together for a holiday, that normally Snape doesn't seem to care about, I get the father and daughter together for Destiny's 12th birthday. Well, I hope you like the next chapter.
OOOOO! I liked it! I was hoping you would address her and Snape soon! Can't wait to see where you take them!! Great Job!
I have totallyenjoyed this! Great job!! Very fun to read! Will you be taking the trio into the other books?! (pleeeeease?!)
Sorry about that! You already said you had the entire series planned out! Someone must have obliterated my memory! Can't wait for more!
Author's Response: I just wanted to give you notice that I am trying to get the first chapter of Year Two posted so be on the look out.
Interesting! Can't wait to read more!!
Summary: Her voice is firm and fiery and it reminds him of the rose-coloured past and too bright sunshine and a giggling girl with unruly curls and dirt under her nails, who says with a voice too loud and an attitude too large,"Oh, Sev."
He doesn't know why Lily has come, why her husband has let her, or what they're even doing. All he knows is that he's right beside her in the car, and they're leaving the rest of the world behind. (Two-shot.)
extra bits of the story are always worth it! I can't imagine being James and letting her go off like that! great story!
Author's Response: Thanks! I think I'm definitely going to write that companion piece :)
Draco is given a choice, but the freedom to choose is no longer his. Threatened into obedience, he must find a way out of mess after mess without getting himself and his family killed.
ooooooooooo, I like it! I'm reading By Firelight too, so its awesome to see him in two different mind frames! Can't wait! Yes, though! By Firelight first!! :)
Summary: He knows he shouldn't say it, but there's still a part of him that remembers being fifteen, that remembers thinking it impossible to get Lily Evans to give him a chance, and it's never really been put to rest. "Don't stop loving me," he whispers. "Please, Lily. Don't ever."
He thought the war couldn't become any more unbearable. But, somehow, it does. It probably has something to do with his wife driving off in the middle of the night. (Companion to "You Told Me Once, Dear.")
Beyond words! I love it!! I wasn't expecting the happy ending with Lily surviving, so that was a happy happy surprise!! Very very good!!
Author's Response: Thanks very much! I couldn't help but give a happy ending; I'm too much of a sucker for them ;)
Summary: The Masque was her chance to get over a broken relationship and move on, her appearance magically charmed for a night of escapist pleasure. She had no expectations, least of all that she might fall for a fellow masked player. And yet she did, their identities a secret as their relationship blossomed. When they take off the masks and reveal their true selves, can they move beyond their past and try to build something for the future?
This is Gmariam of Ravenclaw writing for the February Month of Love Challenge: Surprise Love.
Great! For a split second there I thought for sure it was going to be Harry, but then he wouldn't really be caught dead at one of those parties. It was awesome that it turned out to be Draco! I had an ewww, what if it had been Ron moment, but lost that as I read further in! (We'll assume there is a charm to prevent siblings from being attracted to each other at those parties!) :P
Great story! I loved it!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! You know, this story came to me a while ago, and at first it *was* Harry. But I just couldn't go anywhere with it until the challenge popped up and I thought - ah ha! This would work! But we couldn't do Harry/Ginny or James/Lily, so Draco it was, and I'm quite happy with how it turned out. The thought about siblings running into each other at the party occurred to me too (although I never thought it was Ron, eww, lol!) so yes, I'd say there is *definitely* a charm that prevents that from happening. Unless, of course, you wanted to write a Shakespearean tragedy! Thank you so much for reading this and leaving such a great review, I really appreciate it!! ~Gina :)
