OK I read in reviews things about Susan and Lavendor. I reread this chapter and don't see it. Am I missing something? This is great as always!!

Author's Response: This story was always five chapters, but was submitted as a one-shot to meet the Challenge dealdline. I rewrote bits, and tattook it over 10000 words, so I had to split it. Susan and Lavender appear in chapter 3. Glad you like it. -N-

Hell and High Water by Misdemeanor1331

Rated: Professors •
Summary: Life’s choices are unfair, difficult, and occasionally impossible. But to stand in inaction is to perish, and to perish is to fail. What determines survival, and ultimately success, is one’s ability to adapt to the consequences of the action taken, regardless of whether it’s right or wrong.

Rediscovering Old Skills by Soap

Rated: Professors •
Summary: Ron and Hermione's marriage ends in failure. Hermione is resigned to the fate of her relationship with him, and attempts to find some independence and rekindle her Dumbledore's Army skills through a series of self defense classes. But she runs into her old Hogwarts nemesis, how will her romantic life take a different turn? How will her friends and family react?

And how will a distant and aloof Draco Malfoy learn to love and trust with Hermione's help?

Rated Professors for sexual situations. The story is mostly Deathly Hallows compliant, even considering the epilogue.

Sophomore Spells at the Wizarding University of Paris by jenniferes

Rated: Professors •
Summary: Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy attend their sophomore year at the Wizarding University of Paris. This is a sequel to both the Dragon Does the Tickling, where Hermione Granger and Draco Malfoy complete their seventh year at Hogwarts after the war and fall in love and More Wandless Magic with Malfoy, where they complete their freshman year at WUP. I strongly recommend reading both those stories first.

Rated: 6th-7th Years • Past Featured Story
Summary: Adrian Pucey has always had a tumultuous relationship with Miles Bletchley, but as the years tread on, 'tumultuous' is just the beginning. And when Miles is found dead at the Battle of Hogwarts -- and as a Death Eater -- Adrian's sense of loss pales in comparison to what he finds at the funeral.

This story has been nominated for a 2013 Quicksilver Quill Award: Best Dark/Angst.

Reviewer: macheel Signed
Date: 09/06/12 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

This is well written. I can't wait to see what what happens.

Author's Response:

I'm happy that you feel this is well-written. With tricky subjects like this, it's hard to be sure that they are paid due deference to their sensitive nature. I worked hard to make sure this was treated with proper care, because it's an ugly subject to think about but one that is all too real.

Thank you for reading and leaving your thoughts. :)

The Power of Words by MetamorphmagusLupin

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: AU. Actions speak louder than words, certainly, but that doesn't mean words don't have power. Severus takes on a new assignment and Zoe speaks. SEQUEL to The Art of Communication. Reading that story first is highly encouraged.

The Paths Continue by ntoforhp

Rated: 6th-7th Years •
Summary: This story is a sequel to Paths to 9 and ¾ 2017 and Beyond.

It’s been almost one year since the twentieth anniversary of the battle for Hogwarts was celebrated. The good feelings between the Weasley/Potter clans and the Malfoy/Greengrasses had lasted but a short time. When Draco Malfoy had married Astoria Greengrass he’d become Chairman of the Society of Pure Blood Families. His in-laws founded the Society and having the son of Lucius Malfoy as the Chairman had drawn many of the old-line Pure Blood families. The Society had opposed, with some success, many of the modern progressive changes that the Ministry of Magic under Kinsley Shacklebolt has tried to implement. The Society blames the Weasleys as the chief architects of these changes. The animosity between the two groups was never greater.

Meanwhile, at Hogwarts School the students are mostly ignorant of the depth of this feud. They are interested in their studies, Quidditch and romance, and not necessarily in that order.

The story centers around two young lovers that will interact with Harry, Ginny, Ron, Hermione and their children. This will not be a pleasant trip for the Weasleys, Potters, or the Malfoys as their paths continue down a sometime very rocky road.

The World of Wizarding England and many of the characters belong to J. K. Rowling (who I am obviously not.) I’m just happy to be able to play in it for a while.

Uncovered by Death by Equinox Chick

Rated: 6th-7th Years • Past Featured Story
Summary: All Scorpius Malfoy had wanted on the Saturday before Halloween was to spend some time in Hogsmeade alone with his girlfriend, Lily Potter. But Fate appeared to have other plans. Not only is her annoying cousin Hugo Weasley tagging along, but in the aftermath of a violent storm, a body is uncovered.

Working with his boss, Head Auror Harry Potter, to discover the identity of the victim, and the truth of her death, Scorpius quickly learns that not all skeletons are buried underground.

This is a the sequel to High. It is not necessary to read that to understand this, but what the heck, you might just enjoy it!

Many, many thanks to Kara (Karaley Dargen) for not only beta'ing this story, but putting up with the tortuous search for a title.

Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling, but I think you know that.

Uncovered by Death won the 2013 QSQ for Best Chaptered Next Generation Story. Thank you very much.

Author's Response: Thank you. I wasn't certain about the four-year-old voice (by the way, Annie wants everyone to know that she's "nearly five!") I'm really glad that you think I've got it right. -N-
