Symphony for Quartet by Tinn Tam

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •

Winner of the QuickSilver Quills Award, categ. Best Marauder Era.

What did being a Marauder truly mean?... Let's just say that some tunes cannot be played by a lone musician; and those four's lives were certainly not soloists' scores. In class or in detention, in Quidditch matches or full-moon wanderings, fleeing before monsters or confronting dark wizards, they wrote, measure after measure, their own eight-handed piece.

Messrs Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs, are proud to present a Symphony for Quartet.

A Christmas Affirmation. by Magical Maeve

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: A little bit of Christmas fluff and hope, Harry and Ginny style.
Reviewer: crazy_purple_hp_freak Signed
Date: 12/08/06 Title: Chapter 1: A Christmas Affirmation.

Aww! This poem made me feel lovely and warm. You've really captured the feeling of 'love' and the Christmas spirit.

Date: 12/08/06 Title: Chapter 1: A Christmas Affirmation.

Sorry sorry sorry…I don’t know why only the first line of my review came up. *hides*

Aww! This poem made me feel lovely and warm. You've really captured the feeling of 'love' and the Christmas spirit.

For love is king of kings, it says
And will outlive the darkest night.
And when this is done there’ll be days
When love will soar beyond the highest kite.

I love this stanza and the image that it conjures up! I felt that it really emphasised the importance of love, and shows that it can be something to cling onto, introducing the element of hope. I can almost see ‘love’ soaring in the sky, like a free spirit…wow.

One thing I really like about this poem is the rhythm that remains steady throughout. It seems to begin like a sort of narrative, and slowly introduce elements of love and Christmas. This is really clever!

I only have a tiny picky comment, that the last line “A warm December hearth to return home to.” seemed to have a few too many syllables and didn’t really fit the rhythm, and perhaps contrasted too much to the previous line which only had 8 syllables. Anyway, the rest was fab and the overall poem managed to capture so many emotions, and was a pleasure to read!

You and I by Foxy Wolf

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: It’s November 9th 1997 and Ginny Weasley has awoken from a disturbing dream. She misses Harry terribly. She thinks of the six years she has known and loved him; and she knows that the dream was about the two of them and her feelings about their relationship.

Wow! This is the first HP poem that I've ever read; came across it in the QSQ noms for best poem! (Well done by the way!)

I really like the repetition used in this. It's very effective and the descriptions are both emotional and idyllic. A fab poem!

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I\'m glad you took the time to read the QSQ nominees.

The magic of the bottle makes it so only those with true love in their hearts can open it. As always, please leave a review

I have tears in my eyes again now.. this is so moving...awwwwwww.... Will rush off to read the next chapter now! I wonder who the other couple were...

Reviewer: crazy_purple_hp_freak Signed
Date: 05/19/06 Title: Chapter 4: Extra Assignments

First of all...Omigosh you SO SHOULD do a prequel/sequel...that would be so good!!!

And I really like the way that Harry managed to get the lion to move.

Might as well list some of my favourite quotes coz I really love this chapter!
[i]“and how, exactly, do you think you got here, Malfoy? Immaculate conception?” [/i] This really made me laugh!!
[i]A pair of bright green eyes met brown, and the world stopped.[/i]
I thought this was a really good way to end the chapter...wow...

Author's Response: I am planning on doing the two stories along with this one, but it will probably be quite some time before they are going to be posted. Thanks for the great review, I am glad that you liked those lines, they are among my favorites as well!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I am sure that I do not deserve such an awesome compliment, but it is greatly appreciated none the less.

A Ghost Story by mcclure_512

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • Past Featured Story
Summary: This one is about our good friend Severus Snape. For obvious reasons, he’s hasn’t been feeling too delightful lately, and his thoughts throw him into a spiral of fear and guilt.
Reviewer: crazy_purple_hp_freak Signed
Date: 11/02/06 Title: Chapter 1: A Breath of Darkness

Came across this on the main page...congrats on being runnerup for QSQs! This poem deserves it :)

I'm not very good at poetry critique...but I think that the rhyming and imagery in this is fantastic. The intro sets the scene really well and the ghostly, sinister atmosphere is maintained throughout the poem.

I love the rhyming couplets in italics, they enhance the 'fear' element really well.

A great poem. Well done!!

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I\'m glad you enjoyed the poem, always good to hear. Don\'t worry, no one\'s good at critiquing poetry.

Potions by Soap

Rated: Professors •
Summary: Hermione and Draco - an unlikely pair - go from intense dislike to true love in this story.
Reviewer: crazy_purple_hp_freak Signed
Date: 05/13/06 Title: Chapter 1: Prologue - Remembering

This is a short but very good first chapter!

Amortentia by Cruciatus Love

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: Merope Gaunt has what seems like a flawless plan to get Tom Riddle to love her. She has everything worked out to the very last drop of Amortentia in his glass each morning. Watch as a country called Romania and a celebration of love takes it's effect on this 'perfect love.'

Written as a Term Challenge: Holidays Abroad submission for Slytherin.

Reviewer: crazy_purple_hp_freak Signed
Date: 08/22/06 Title: Chapter 1: Prologue

A very well written prologue to a story, well done! I really liked the characterisations of both Merope and Tom, especially your portrayal of Tom as a slightly snobbish sarcastic person. I think this worked extremely well as a contrast to the change in his personality after taking the potion.

One of my favourite sections was the use of 'One gulp down.'...'Two gulps down.'...'Three gulps and... '
This was extremely effective in keeping the reader's attention and expressing the anxiety of Merope herself.

A great prologue... *goes off to read next chapter* :)

Author's Response: Have fun with the enxt chapter and thanks for the review!

Reviewer: crazy_purple_hp_freak Signed
Date: 08/22/06 Title: Chapter 2: Chapter One

Again, fantastic characterisation. The use of Tom's 'pre-potion' morning mood was very effective in showing just how much Merope was relying on the potion, and also how fragile the marriage was, should a single mistake be made.

Going to Romania is a lovely twist to the story. I like the descriptions of the mountains and the scenery, which are also a good way of laying out the romantic atmosphere Merope is trying to create.

Overall a great chapter! I especially loved the line: [i]Amortentia so far had been her dearest friend. It helped her get her greatest desire, but sometimes it also felt as if it was tearing her apart. [/i]
I think it basically sums everything up.

Author's Response: Thanks for picking out that line; I also especially like the way I compare things. I\'m glad you like it.

Reviewer: crazy_purple_hp_freak Signed
Date: 08/22/06 Title: Chapter 3: Chapter Two

An excellent ending to the chapter. The story is progressing very smoothly and the ending of this chapter further increases the sense of forboding that I'm sure I'm not alone in starting to feel!!

I'm liking the characterisation more and more with every chapter! Merope's character is understandable as she is feeling both protectiveness and guilt towards her husband.
I also like the descriptions of the amulets, and the way that Tom wants to make one for his wife. Its interesting to see these things from a slightly different perspective...a great idea!

Anyhoo... *will go r & r next chapter!*

Author's Response: Thanks, I love my Tom and Merope as well. They\'re both just such great characters, and I\'m glad you like them. Thanks for the review!

Reviewer: crazy_purple_hp_freak Signed
Date: 08/22/06 Title: Chapter 4: Chapter Three

Aww I almost feel sorry for Merope, she's so convinced that things are going to work out when we can see/know that it won't.. *sob*

I like the way that Tom's character has subtly changed, even without the potion. He is no longer violent and cold, just grumpy. I think that this works quite well, in leaving us to guess that maybe the potion has a more lasting effect than we thought?

I also like the way that everything in this story seems to 'knit' together, in that the timing of Valentine's day coincides and works well with the fact that this is also the day that Tom loves Merope the least.

A tiny bit that I'm not quite sure of the meaning of:
"Merope cleaned up, and put away the dishes as she normally did, but noticed the new expression on Tom’s face as he watched her. It was not an expression of love or admiration, but one of contempt. Maybe he was happy here after all?"
This seems to me to be a contradiction, as if he feels contempt for her he cannot be happy? Don't know if its just me being slow today....ignore that...

Author's Response: I\'m glad that you noticed the slow chanrge in Tom, as I tried to make it slow so that it didn\'t jump out at you but was still noticable. Thanks for the review!

Reviewer: crazy_purple_hp_freak Signed
Date: 08/22/06 Title: Chapter 5: Chapter Four

*shakes head* Its sad, its tragic, but we knew it was going to happen.... and your descriptions and characters were exactly right again!! Well done!!

I like the way that Tom's character changes again, expressing his anger and contempt at being hookwinked.

Just a quick typo in the last paragraph..."he took once last glace" should be glance. :)

Author's Response: I think I\'ve gotten that correction a million time so far, but I never manage to change it. But thanks for the review!

Reviewer: crazy_purple_hp_freak Signed
Date: 08/22/06 Title: Chapter 6: Chapter Five

The description in this chapter, especially of the weather and the snowdrops is absolutely gorgeous, as well as being appropriate to the situation, and a pleasure to read.

I like the way that you have furthered the impact that an absence of magic has on her. The language barriers are also very realistic.

A teeny (kind of) nitpick...the day before this, Merope was having massive morning sickness pregnancy problems, and she seems to be absolutely fine..just thought that might be a bit unrealistic, though obviously her throwing up doesn't really match the sad-yet-descriptive mood of this chapter...just thought I'd point it out anyway...

*goes off to read next one*

Author's Response: Pfft, yeah. I added in the sickness to ease into the pregnancy thing, and then once that was over I srot of dropped it. Whoops. Hehe. But thanks for the great review!

Reviewer: crazy_purple_hp_freak Signed
Date: 08/22/06 Title: Chapter 7: Epilogue ~ Birth of a Legend

A fantastic ending to a very moving chapter and a great story. *sniff*

Once again, I'll pile on the praises for your characterisations of these two people!! I like the fact that Tom and Merope meet again. Although this Tom, who gives Merope money, isn't the angry, violent Tom that we know, the gesture nevertheless works, as it shows how much people can change...I also like the portrayal of Sara, showing that maybe she does have a heart!

The alternating scenes of orphanage/Merope's past worked very well in keeping the pace of the story flowing and constant. I love the way that little things that you have added in tie in with little bits of canon.

Overall, a great fic! You're a really talented writer! I'm off to read some of your other fics now! *grin*

Author's Response: Thanks for all your compliments; you\'re a great reviewer! And yes, I have an odd love for switching back and forth between past and preasent. You\'ll see that in other fics as well.

Lemon Drops by Hero London

Reviewer: crazy_purple_hp_freak Signed

First of all, congrats on being nominated in QSQs! I came across this fic there so thought I'd check it out.

This is beautifully written. I love the way that you have taken a simple aspect of the canon and elaborated on it in such an interesting way.

The use of first person in this works really well, and Tiffany's descriptions of post-war London are fascinating to read about from the "muggle" point of view.

The ending in particular, was very well written. I think that you have summerised Dumbledore's manner and the way that he affects others, exactly right!

Author's Response: Crazy Purple Harry Potter Freak, thank you and thank you again! Gosh, I don\'t know what to say, the news that I was nominated in QSQ\'s didn\'t reach me until I read your review. I\'m speechless!

We Echo On by Liisa

Wow! This is really well written. I like the idea of the portrait; though does this mean that Sirius could come back, like in Fate? You should expand this!!!
