I love sports, ice cream, nutella, and J.K. Rowling. Without any of the above, I don't think I could function properly :). I am an addict to fan fiction, almost to a fault...my favorite stories to read are romances, preferably with James and Lily....something about them, just gets me every time. I don't like AUs or dark fics, they usually confuse or depress me, but basically, any fiction that is well written appeals to me
I liked this story because I loved the way it was simple. Harry's life is usually portrayed as chaotic, sometimes with a lot of drama...He's usually in the middle of something heroic, or in some kind of crisis. This fiction one was perfect because it seemed like a normal night, with nothing crazy. His experience is something I could imagine happening to anyone...It was just average, and it was refreshing to read a story like that. Good job!
Author's Response: Harry was portrayed as a good dad in the epilogue, comforting a nervous Al. I’m sure that his life will be chaotic (three kids!) and sometimes dramatic. But I’d hope that by eight years after the battle he’d be able to relax occasionally. Of course in this story he’s not relaxing. N
Scorpius had never looked forward to anything the way he looked forward to leaving Hogwarts with Rose. He planned a holiday with no friends, no family, and nothing to do but be togetherâ€”until a tampered Portkey changed their destination.
I was a little apprehensive starting this story, afraid it would go along a cliche, confusing route, but I ended up really enjoying it! Fantastic job, I can't wait for the next few chapters!!
Author's Response: Thank you for reading the story despite your apprehension and double thanks for enjoying it! I haven't been able to update as regularly as I'd like, but I'm hoping to post the last two chapters in January and start the New Year right (and write, heh).
I loved this story. It was swoon-worthy...There were some perfect lines that just felt completely right for each character. My favorite was when you added the part about Fleur messing up in her pronunciation of the Burrow, because it just fit so well!! I always love the way you portray Fleur...although I think my favorite character this time was Teddy (chocit fwogs!!). And I guess I can't forget Bill...He is so endearing!!! Fantastic job.
Author's Response: Thank you very much. I'm glad you liked the story - I liked Teddy best too. ~Carole~
Awwwwwwwwww!!! Very, very sweet. Love this!
And I really liked James Potter II's line at the end - reminds me of the first James Potter :).
Author's Response: Haha, I know. I picture him and Fred Weasley II as the next generation's Weasley twins! Thanks for the review!
Keep it up,I love the way you wrote this. Its unlike other stories because you just write about normal life, something along the lines of what Jo would have written. It doesn't try to be extremely dramatic, life just happens, in a way that seems very plausible. Excellent and very refreshing! I think that's what keeps getting me! Post soon, I can't wait!!!!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. It may be normal life for Hermione and Ginny at Hogwarts, but for the Trainee Aurors things are about to get interesting. More soon. -N-
First, I'd like to say that I am so happy you made Romilda never figure out anything bad to write. Also this was superbly written.
I have one question though, of clarification. The way I interpreted this, Ginny and Dean had a "thing" while Harry and Ginny were together (I'm guessing before the engagement) and Harry found out about it. Is that right?
If so, than I am so happy Harry and Ginny worked it out. And, again, that Romilda never found out!! Great story.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Regarding clarification, I've deliberately left it ambiguous in the story, but in my mind it's a one-off that happenedwhen all three parties were vulnerable for whatever reason. Harry knows something happened, but perhaps he wasn't totally blameless.In the real world - especiallly in relationships - things are not black and white. Hmm, I think this has made me realise that I need to write a Ginny/Dean. Plot bunnies are driving me nuts. Thanks again ~Carole~
Remember ol’ Archie from GOF? Well, now you’ll know why he refused to give up his flowery gown for a pair of trousers.
Written for the April Fool Challenge at the beta boards. Nominated for a QSQ in the Best Humour category. :D Many thanks to Rachel (lily_evans34) for her help with Latin.
DISCLAIMER: This is not J.K.Rowling, though characters you recognize and story premises belong to her.
Oh, that made me laugh! So funny, and very cleverly written. I never thought that Archie couldn't wear pants, rather that he just chose not to...That why I loved your idea! Lovely imagination :)
Author's Response: Yeah, I know...maybe, poor Archie just didn't want to wear pants. Hehe! But it was such a wacky idea for the prompt that I had to write it. :D Thanks for the review and compliments. :)
I just wanted to write a quick note to say that I loved this. Fantastic storytelling!
Author's Response: Thank youuuuuuuu! I struggled with this one, until I'd got the hook at the end, so I appreciate your compliments. ~Carole~
but I want to know more!!!! I want to know if Albus ever gets more confidence....
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.
LOVE LOVE LOVE the ending...*sigh*....just something about Lily and James, gets me every time. Fantastic job!
Author's Response: Something about them gets me too! I'm so glad you enjoyed the ending, it was tough to wrap it up. Thank you so much for reading, I really appreciate the review! ~Gina :)
At times, this seems a little corny, but I'm always up for a Lily and James story. At any rate, its well written and its only the beginning after all. Update soon!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I'm glad you like it overall. Since this is my first fanfiction, it probably is a little corny. If you have any general suggestions for the story, they'd be welcome. :)
wow! it took me a little while to get into the story, but once I did, it blew me away. even though its a bit AU, and I'm usually not a fan of that, I really like this story! Keep writing!
I'm definitely looking forward to see where this is going. I love that you chose minor characters!! Keep at it.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. This is simply short snatches of the Battle from different perspectives, you will, occasionally, see the same scene from two (or even three) perspectives. some of them, however, are simple one shots. -N-
Truly enjoyed this - very poignant somehow. excellent job. I like that you ended it hopefully.
In her seventh year, Katie Bell knew what it was like to fear death. A year later, she learnt what it was like to see it in front of her. Nothing she had ever experienced had prepared her to deal with the aftermath of that. And then he came.
Caught in a whirlwind of Quidditch, heartbreak, and a rivalry, Katie struggled with her jumbled mess of feelings, one of which she hadn't expected but was growing certain that she could never live without.
Oh my freaking Salazar! This story WON TWO 2011 Quicksilver Quill Awards: Best Post-Hogwarts Story and Best Non-Canon Romance Story. *flail*
This (late) update was brought to you by the (belated) birthday of the ever-lovely Hannah / h_vic. She is a star and an excellent friend!
oh no oh no!!! how awful!
Poor Katie... she keeps doing this to herself. Stay tuned to find out what happens to our intrepid couple!
LOVE. the end more, it got better as it went along...I didn't like how Lily was 'such a little kid' but after that, it was perfect. i can't wait for the second bit!
Author's Response: Thank you! Hopefully the next bit won't disappoint!
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
