I love this so much! I always wondered how their relationship truly developed and you write it exactly as I imagined it! Please update soon, I can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing :) The next update shouldn't be too far away. I'm glad you like the story so far!
Ahh such a good chapter, but so upsetting - i hate when they are upset with each other :( it would be really interesting if u did the scene where they are sitting together at dumbledore's funeral too. are you going to have another chapter for sixth year, or is this it? anyway, im loving the story please update soon!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for reviewing :) Tell me about it! I just want them to be nice to each other! There are a few more chapters from HBP to come. There won't be a scene with them just after the funeral, I'm afraid, but there is going to be one that happens during the train ride home - I hope that's okay :)
Wow this was truly fantastic. Although you didn't have "the kiss" you certainly made up for it! And honestly everything about this is exactly how I would have pictured it to happen. Just please tell me this isn't the last chapter?
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! Yay for not letting you down, haha! It isn't! There is one more, epilogue-ish chapter left. Anyway, I'm glad you enjoyed it so far :)
aahhhhh this is so good! I was getting worried when you didn't update! Are you going to end it exactly when the book ends, or maybe go a little bit past it? Also, I'm so glad you are covering their time in the forest - that was totally glossed over in the books.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing :) Sorry about the delays between updates - life got a bit lifey. This story isn't going to abandoned, don't worry. The last chapter will be called 'Nineteen Minutes Later' so that should give you some idea. Haha, well, to be fair, JKR probably wanted to get the huge battle bit. Anyway, glad you're enjoying this so far :)
This is really good! I think it also totally would have worked as a much longer, chaptered story, but you made the short length work quite nicely. I really liked the characters, and how you expressed them. I would also love to hear more about them, is there any way you would consider writing a sequel, this time a longer story?
Author's Response: Hi there! Thank you for your review! I am currently writing a sort of prequel to it for another one of my prompts and a sort of sequel for another. Unfortunately, they will both only be one-shots as I have three days to write both of them! Maple
this is good, please update soon!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! While this fic in itself is complete, the story line continues in Lost in the Stars and Casts, which can be found on my authors page :)
This is so good! I am a recruit from Seven Simple Years, which I liked so much, so I thought I'd check this out. It's really depressing, at least as of now, but I'm glad that you made it that way, because that is way more realistic. I do hope there will be some more happy moments soon though! I also really want to see what Ginny is going to say to Harry... Oh and I really liked the scene from the last chapter with Hermione and her father. We never see any interaction between them in the books, and this was just so heartbreaking and realistic!
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! I knew SSY was good for something, haha - I'm glad you liked it. Anyway, this fic. This is actually the last chapter (although I will be writing happier post-DH stuff and quite possibly what Ginny says to Harry) but I am relieved that you liked the kind of depressing side of this story; I know it's not everyone's thing. With this fic I wanted to show that after less than three weeks everything still wasn't okay, but they were rebuilding and there was definitely hope. I'm glad you liked the part with Hermione's dad. Her parents fascinate me - I wish they were in the books more - so it was a great chapter to write. Anyway, thanks again for reviewing and I am very glad that you enjoyed this :)
wow this is so good. i always wondered what the aftermath would be like, and you have written it exactly the way i imagined it. it would be interesting to see a scene with the trio too
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! I'm glad you're enjoying this so far :) There is only going to be a tiny bit of all three of them together but they will in appear alone and in pairs quite a bit. I hope that's okay!
ahh this is so good! please update soon :)
Author's Response: Ooh, thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I'm still working on it, so Chapter 11 won't be too long. Thank you for reading-I appreciate the review! ~Gina :)
Ooh it's just getting better! I love your mentions of Molly and Fred and George. The timeline this is on is so interesting - you have people who are so young like James and Sirius, and then the older group as well, like Dumbledore. Not many fanfictions choose to focus on this time, in fact this might have been the first I've read - so I love your dedication to the story, and where you are going with it. Update soon!
Author's Response: A very belated thank you for the review! I'm so glad you are enjoying reading about this time. I've written a few other stories set during this time period as well, although most feature the Marauders. I love bringing in as many canon references we can recognize from the books, so I'm glad you enjoyed it. I'm working on the rest, I really am. It's just so hard to plan a battle. ;) Thanks again! ~Gina :)
At the end, Remus reflects.
This was originally titled It's oh so quiet and was written in Secret Spew VII for the fabulous Sophie / The owl.
this is really good!
Author's Response: thank youuuuu - it's what I aim for :D x Lily
Ahh this was reallly good. Really sad, but good. I always like stories that show other sides of the battle, that we didn't get to see in the book. And realistically, it makes sense something like this (killing someone on their own side) would've actually happened. And the consequences you showed definitely made sense, as sad as it is. Great job!
Author's Response: Thank you! :) Yeah, it was sad, but I like sad :3 and so does my recipient, I think. I'm really flattered that you enjoyed my story, and I also love reading about other perspectives of the battle. I'm trying to remember where I got the idea from, but I can't :/ It was definitely something I watched -- either on TV or a movie. Whatever it was, there was some kind of battle and someone killed someone on their own side, and that was what sparked the inspiration for this story.
I'm really glad you enjoyed reading this and that it made you think. My lovely recipient requested a story that "inspired conscience without bludgeoning the reader on the head", and I hope that came across here. Anyway, thanks for the review, and once again, it means so much to me that you liked this :)
This is so good! please update soon. there was just one thing - don't you think Lily would've found out instantly Remus was a werewolf from the information James gave her?
Author's Response: Ooh, sorry for the belated response! Thank you for the review! I'm glad you enjoyed it - it's finished now and I hope you enjoyed the ending. As for your question...no, in this context I don't think she would have found out Remus was a werewolf. James just knew a thing or two about it, which made her think maybe *he* was one, but she has no other reason to think Remus might be one. He doesn't say anything, after all. I've written stories where she either does figure it out or he is sort of forced to tell her, but with everything else going on here, I don't think she would have been thinking about it anyway. But that's just my opinion. ;) Thanks again for the review! ~Gina :)
Katie Bell is twenty years old and happily working as a consultant and practitioner of the Transfiguration department in the new and improved Ministry of Magic, under the benevolent rule of Kingsley Shacklebolt. She has a lovely flat to herself, an excellent relationship with her two parents and three girlfriends who have always been there for her. However, it's safe to say that something is perhaps missing from her life.
After her first sighting of the loathsome, but now annoyingly rugged, Marcus Flint, negative memories of Hogwarts and the battle that changed everything resurface for Katie and she is forced to face the question: is she really living her life or just existing?
But when someone starts to stalk Katie, she is forced to turn to the last person she could ever have imagined for help in the matter and the question becomes why would someone want to harm her?
And why is this Slytherin, someone she should loathe as she once did, making her feel things and say things that she could never have imagined.
A Katie Bell/Marcus Flint romance
from the award winning author of "My Troubled Tyrant" and "Jemzi" comes a new romance
looks good already! Im a huge fan of your stories, so I'm really glad you are starting a new one. Plus Katie Bell has always been one my favorite side characters! Can't wait for the next chapter
Author's Response: I remember you! Been trying to be grown-up recently but I found my old books and got sucked in again! Next chapter is in the queue :)
