The Unseemly Proposal by sparx
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 5422]

Summary: Past Featured StoryThe reign of Voldermort comes to an end, and with it ends the prestige and power Lucius Malfoy once had in the Wizarding World. In order to regain the respect of his fellow wizards and to make them believe that he has turned over a new leaf (which he actually hasn't) and has graciously accepted muggles and Mudbloods, Lucius asks Hermione, a Mudblood, to marry his son, Draco, a pure-blood. Obviously, they both refuse, but Lucius isn't going to give up easily. After all, he wants his status back. He still has a few tricks up his sleeve and is determined to play match-maker. What happens next is a series of events that serve only to bring Hermione and Draco closer, both literally and figuratively speaking. Read to find out how this one unseemly proposal causes absolute chaos in their lives! THIS STORY IS NOT HBP and DH COMPATIBLE! Hey all! Check out my personal info for the expected date of the next update. =)

First off, I love this story, I remember finding a prinout off this in the school library probably four years ago, when there were only eighteen chapters, and never getting furthur then that. I have just rediscovered it, and it's superb. I do, however, have one little bit of criticism. I don't think you've edited the story well enough, I'll be reading, totally engrossed in the story, when some gross grammatical error will jump out at me, disturbing the flow completely. Otherwise, I'm engrossed, hope to finish it tonight, Thanks-

Marauders to the End- Year One by armagod679
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 46]

Summary: This is the story of the rat, the stag, the werewolf, and the dog. They met by fate and were bound by a secret. Hopes, fears, love, tears, great and small, Marauders all. Their years at Hogwarts will always live on in infamy, although so many people say different things. Here is the frivolous first year of the tale of Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs.

Not really the place to ask, but what's a Beta, and what's a mod? If they are something like editors, how do I become one?

Author's Response: A beta is a person who proofreads your story before submission. A mod is the person who decides if your story is posted. Both offer suggestions for improvements. Mods are hired periodically (look for an announcement on the main page.) I don't know how you can become a beta. You'll have to check the beta forums.

I very much enjoyed the story, and am looking foward to The Marauders next year at Hogwarts. I usally hate Fan Fiction because I compare it to the original, but with your story, there was not much in place to compare it to, and that helped me to enjoy it. A couple of things however, I did not like:
1) During the last chapter, what James says about the plot, "There didn’t even seem to be an overall plot for the year”, really breaks down the fourth wall, as do many of his prophecies.
2) What you try very hard to do with your story is copy J.K. Rowling's writing style, but when you drop that, the story becomes a lot better and stands alone from the Potter books, and finnaly,
3) Could you try and build Peter up a bit more, nothing so far suggests his betrayal, I know it's just th first year, but it would be great if you could do that in the second one.
Don't take the criticsim the wrong way, I loved the story, and have read the first two chapters of the second one, I'm really looking foward to more-
Marlon Ettinger

Author's Response: Thank you for all your advice. I am glad to have written a story you actually enjoy. My answers to the things you suggest: 1) I realize that breaking the fourth wall is not generally accepted. However, it can often lead to great comedy, or, in the case of the discussion of a plot, a major life lesson. 2) You're right, I did at a few points try to write like our darling Jo. That was in the early days of the story, when I was young and not yet confident in myself. Now that I have matured a bit (and written other stories beside fan fiction) I can write on my own terms. 3) Yes, I need to build Peter more, but I'm having to do it in a way that keeps Peter in the group. After all, it was a huge shock to Sirius to realize that sweet, scared little Wormtail was evil. I don't take your criticism the wrong way, in fact I enjoy hearing it. Don't take my responses the wrong way, this is how I talk to the mods as well. Thank you for reading.- armagod679

 

Dean by armagod679
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 3]

Summary: Dean Thomas knows he has to leave his family, and the warmth of home... but can he face saying goodbye to them?

The whole thing with Deans father was a bit confusing to me, I'm not sure if this was supposed to disregard the seires, but Rowling never mentions Deans father, real or not, coming back. So who's the man in his home?

Author's Response: She did say there was a step-father. That was the man who Dean thought of as his father. Sorry if it was confusing.

 

Marauders to the End- Year Two by armagod679
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 23]

Summary: This is the story of the rat, the stag, the werewolf, and the dog. They met by fate and were bound by a secret. Hopes, fears, love, tears, great and small, Marauders all.

The boys are back for another year at Hogwarts. More laughter will follow... against a backdrop of trouble, secrets, inspiration, and a Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher that could... well, wouldn't want to spoil the surprise would we? Here is the senseless second year of Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs.
