Wandless by Wandering Wand
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 60]


It’s not just any 1st of September. The Philosopher Stone is hidden at Hogwarts, The Boy Who Lived is about to board the Express for the first time. It’s not the best September for something unexpected to happen, for something impossible. Or someone.

This story is not AU, but it focuses on the original character, her plot, her friends, her loves :)

Rating and Warning only for later chapters.

I've really enjoyed this story; thank you so much for sharing it with us! It's an intriguing idea and you are obviously very knowledgeable about legends and myths, not to mention creative. I'm enjoying the growing relationship between Cybele and Prof. Snape; I think you portray Snape sympathetically but realistically. One thing that confused me about this chapter: when did Cybele and George start dating? I might have to go back and read it again; it was conveyed in a very subtle way, I think. I'm looking forward to reading the next two chapters tonight!

Author's Response: Thanks! I'm happy you're enjoying. You're right about my having sort of skipped Cybele and George getting together. It happened after the Yule ball, in my head... I'm not into describing kisses and fluffy things, sorry :P

This chapter was full of action and exposition, but it flowed really well. The conversation between Alexandra and Journey is especially good. I like how you summarized what happened with Journey in the first book without being tiresome to people who've already read it.

The scene with Anna shows that Alex has learned to express her emotions better, but I also love how you seem to use Charlie to put more emotion into heavy scenes like this. Heart-wrenching.
Your writing is always so good, but one sentence in this chapter stood out:
"Skuld stopped and thrust her nose inquisitively through the ghost, then let out a disgruntled snort as Alexandra threw the saddle over her."
Poetry! Not only is it a hilarious image, but also it makes me feel like I'm there in the stable when I read it.
I was sort of expecting a big cliffhanger at this point...can't wait for the next installment!


Behind the Curtain by Virgil
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 25]


“…he fell through the ancient doorway and disappeared behind the veil, which fluttered for a moment as though in a high wind and then fell back into place… Sirius must be just behind the curtain…”

Sirius Black didn’t die when he fell through the veil in the Department of Mysteries. He was transported to another world: our world, where Hogwarts doesn’t exist and magic lives only in the fantasy books. As Sirius tries to understand this strange new world and find his way home, he runs into some unlikely old friends. Nothing is the same behind the curtain.

I really like the concept of this story and your writing is really good. Great detail, saying that Sirius would immediately try to change to his dog form when he heard someone coming. The fact that he can't change builds up the mystery of an alternate universe where he can't do magic, and I also like that you mentioned he still has his wand. I'm looking forward to how you develop this, especially how Sirius will discover that he is in a non-magical world and how the relationship with his brother will develop.

Author's Response: What a lovely review! I hope you're satisfied by the way the story unfolds in later chapters :] Peace, Virgil

I'm coming to find you if it takes all night.

For always and ever is always for you. ***

He'd left at the worst possible time, but he's returned determined to prove his worth.

Will she take him back?

This story is dedicated to Lea (muggle girl marauder) who shares my love of Remus Lupin and The Cure. Happy Birthday, mate.

Thanks must be sent to Gina (gmariam) for beta'ing this story.

Yay! One of my favorite authors takes on one of my favorite pairings! I love the way you've put together Andromeda's pureblood background with a super-cute take on how Tonks and Remus got back together after he left. The last section is especially well-written and touching.

Author's Response: Thank you very much. This was an odd thing to write based on a prompt given to me on the beta boards, but I had fun. Glad you enjoyed it. ~Carole~
