Summary: Jemzi Zabini is the seventeen year old daughter of Blaise Zabini and his wife Harper, and is about to join her fellow witches and wizards at Hogwarts for their final school year. Jemzi is famous for being the once best friend of Albus Potter. However, a mysterious argument last year that only the two of them were witness to has ruined their friendship and they are now practically enemies. No one knows the reason for their fall out, only that it has caused a great divide in their friendship group.
Jemzi's best friend and Albus' cousin, Rose, suspects that their friendship expired because of strange and unwanted feelings between them. Feelings which, despite their fall out, have not gone away. Feelings that are similar to those she has for a certain Slytherin...
So can the next generation of Hogwarts students learn to forget past actions and forgive?

What is going to happen with Lily? She is a great character, and what is Blaise keeping from her? What was the fight really about? This chapter brought up so many questions! Loved the chapter though - update soon!
Author's Response: Questions will all be answered; I don't like loose ends, and there will be plenty of Lily and her problems in the next chapter :D
Ooooh it was great! I loved it. I always like when you have Albus/Jemzi convos. However, my favorite is when they are getting along, and you show how well they know each other....maybe soon? Update again please!
Author's Response: Some nice Al/Jemzi interaction to come, never fear. Thanks for commenting :D
On a stormy October evening, a letter, a late night trip to the library and a secret conversation lead Lily Evans to discover that there are several mysteries in her life that only she has the capability and the inclination to solve. The first mystery is James Potter – what could turn him from the arrogant, could-care-less boy that she had previously known to someone withdrawn and far away? Then, perhaps more troubling, there is Esther Collins, the fifth year who has vanished without a trace. Furthermore, one of Lily’s best friends, Izza, is seeing a mystery boy and Lily is determined to know who.
Then there is the threat of war, backstabbing friends and NEWT’s. A disinherited and emotionally battered Sirius Black is the source of heartache for his friends, except perhaps Izza, who, with her own terrifying family, might just understand him. Lily’s closest male friend, Remus Lupin, is hiding a dangerous secret from her. Peter’s girlfriend is screwing him over, and the whole time Lily is struggling to stop the people she loves from coming apart at the seams.
OMG OMG OMG i am soooo happy!! Finally!!!!!!!!! It was great i loveeeeee sirius and izza!! i also love the fact that they both have a dark side, i mean they are totally gryffindors, but they will always have those family ties - i think it is really well done. and lily and jamessahhh the tension! I love it! please keep sirius and izza together and update soon!
Author's Response: Yes, they both have that dark streak, but then so does everyone, I think. I'm glad you think their family ties are well done - the human sense of loyalty and obligation is a twisted, fascinating thing and I plan to explore it even more in this story, so expect more of the Blacks and Moldovoneaus :D
AAAAAH! Please update soon! Such a cliffhanger! You are such a good writer - I love Izza and Sirius - they really need to get together - however, Remus and Izza was cute too - something there perhaps? Oh, and is anything going to happen with Lily and James? Anyway, please update soon!
Author's Response: Hmmm... Izza and Remus? Interesting... Of course something will happen with Lily and James :D Just not right now - there's a little too much tension (the 'I want to punch you so bad right now' tension as opposed to the 'I want to shag you all night long' tension) for anything of the romantic persuasion to happen right now. But sit tight! There is plenty of action coming up.
AHHHHHH!!!!! This chapter was soo good! I've missed this story so much, you have to update soon!!!!! I love the whole Izza, Sirius, Remus thing, and also the James/Lily thing. So good please keep writing!
Oh! So good! i cant believe remus likes izza too! it should be sirius and izza! update soon please!
Author's Response: Ah, Rosty, my loyal reviewer! Next chapter is already waiting for validation :D
Summary: It started out as just a simple friendship between four boys. The story of that friendship, as it grew and they became men, would eventually define wizarding history and change the world forever. Documented here is the story of the four unique, imperfect, and remarkable boys who made up the Marauders.
i think you are a great writer and I love the relationship between the boys. I have to ask though - are you going to keep them at this age for a long time? Because as much as you are a good writer, older versions of them would be more interesting. I understand you can't just jump to them being 16, but maybe like a couple more chapters summing up the major points that happen in their younger years. Anyway, just a suggestion it is great already! Keep writing I love the story!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! Yeah, I do plan on really quickly going through their 2nd-4th years in a few chapters, but first year was really important to establish the relationship between the boys, their families and personalities and whatnot, so I did a lot with that year. But yeah, there's only few more with first year left, and I don't anticipate any other year before their fifth taking so many chapters.
Summary: When Lily and James are both awarded the Head Boy and Head Girl position, they are forced to get along for the sake of their school. Unfortunately, neither Lily nor James are willing to let their guard down. What results is a story that is so passionately tumultuous, neither one of them ever realizes that they have not only crossed the thin line between love and hate...but they are now dancing in its depths.
As the entire magical world battles the oncoming threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, Lily and James will have to learn that the only way to defeat the darkness is to find the light...in themselves.
Hey! I love this story its so good...but why did u make james' parents die? i dont think thats how it happened in the books but i could e wrong. anyway i love the arguements and update soon!!
Summary: Ginny is entering her 6th year at Hogwarts, but this year will be very different than any previous. Harry, Ron, and Hermione never came back for their last year, and the students are losing faith. Teachers are being replaced by Death Eaters and Snape is taking charge. Ginny struggles to keep her faith strong during dark times; Harry, their last tie to hope, has disappeared. She finds new inner strength when darkness encroaches on one of the last safe places left.
Love the story idea - that year at Hogwarts where everything is different is barely shown in the 7th book, so it is interesting to get a good look at it. Keep writing this story!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I hope you like the rest of it!
James Potter has changed: no longer an arrogant, irresponsible prankster, he has matured into a responsible Head Boy with tops marks in Transfiguration. Lily Evans has changed as well: normally studious and in control, she has lost focus as she struggles with Head Girl responsibilities and N.E.W.T level studies. An unexpected encounter in the corridors one weekend leads to several startling realizations, the least of which is that things have definitely changed between James Potter and Lily Evans.
This story was nominated for a 2010 QSQ and is now complete.
This is so good!!!!! please update soon!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you are enjoying this story. I'm working on Chapter 7 even as I type and once my beta looks it over, I hope to post it asap. Thanks so much for reading this and leaving a review, I really appreciate it! ~Gina :)
Summary: Katie Bell discovers the perils of not knowing what (or whom) she wants and taking a close friend for granted.
hey this is really good - please continue!
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it, but I'm afraid it's just a one shot so I won't be continuing it.
Summary: Rose Weasley didn't mean to be different. She didn't intend to stand out in her family. She didn't expect to be Sorted... into Slytherin.
This is so good! I love the characters you have created. Update soon please!
Summary: The Yule Ball is over, leaving Hermione to fester in her frustrations. However, an uncharacteristic midnight stroll through the dark halls of Hogwarts will lead to an unlikely private dance with an even more unlikely student. A prelude to Allies in Shadows ...
this is really quite amazing! when will allies in shadows begin? i can't wait. you are a fantastic writer.
Author's Response: Thank you :) I will start posting Allies in Shadows tomorrow. The Last Dance sat in the queue for about 10 days, but I'm hoping my future posts go up quicker ... fingers crossed ;) - AD
Summary: Sequel to The Last Dance ... Arrogant, self-serving, and often infuriating. That is how Hermione would describe Killian Finn, a reluctant Slytherin. However, she's never met anyone who inspired such passions within her. But what consequences will their secret friendship reap?
I think this is going to be a very good story! please update soon.
Author's Response: Thanks :) The next chapter is in the queue, so hopefully it will be up soon.
So good!! keep writing!
So good! please update soon!
Summary: Based on the combination of the Latin obliviscor, meaning "forget," and the Aramaic עַ�‘ְ�“ָא כְּ�“ַ�‘רָא, avda kedavra, meaning "what was said has been done," Oblivi Kedavra has the meaning “forget what has been done.”
After being struck by a home-made curse from Draco Malfoy, Hermione's mind is swept clean of any and all memories of Ron. Which is stronger? Love or revenge?
this is really good! Please update soon :)
Summary: What if, on that fateful October night, it was not Lily's sacrifice that saved Harry, but James' sacrifice that saved them both? What if Lily is left to pick up the broken pieces of her life after its been shattered into a million pieces? Who would be there to rescue her? Who would get her through the night? This is a story of loss, of pain, of hopelessness, and ultimately, of healing.
After much deliberation and input from all you guys who have read thus far, I have officially decided to continue this story. It was initially supposed to be a one-shot, but I've decided I already have too much of my heart invested in it to quit now. :) Second chapter in progress. Thanks, all! Advice and reviews are still very welcome!
This is amazing, and such an interesting concept. Please update soon!! I can't wait! I think the dynamic between sirius, remus and lily is fascinating. I also really hope you keep Severus as a main character, because I think it would make the character relationships even more fascinating! Anyway, amazing job, keep writing!
Summary: Four Valentine's Day balls. Four very different encounters.
Scorpius Malfoy and Rose Weasley could never exactly be accused of getting along, but four days over four years test the nature of their relationship. From hatred, to sympathy, to attraction, to perhaps something deeper, Scorpius and Rose find themselves in uncharted territory. Can they rise above their ingrained dislike for one another? Or will their prejudices keep them from realising the true reason they can so easily get under each other's skin?
loved it. i really like morgana. i just want more rose and scorpius!!!!!! update soon!
Author's Response: I like Morgana too! She can be a bit mean at times - but I think she's good at heart: at least, I hope that came across. The final chapter's up now and that's exclusively Rose and Scorpius! Thanks for you review :)
So good!!!!! please update soon. I really like the triangle between morgana, scorpius and rose!
Author's Response: I've written the next chapter, so I will be posting soon - just got a bit of last-minute editing to do first! Thanks for the review :)
