Like most people on this site, I am obsessed with Harry Potter. I began reading the books in 2008 (yes, I know, fairly late), and they instantly became favourites.
I love Next-Gen, because it allows you to do anything with the characters without making O.C.'s, which is really neat. Stories I have ideas for are mostly Next-Gen. I also love Fred and George, Tonks, and Hermione.
Right up thr Road: This was the first fanfiction story I ever wrote, and it was written about a year ago. I only have three chapters up, but I have more written. The problem is that I can see that it lacks a lot of plot. For now, it is on hiatus, until I can come up with a better plot line. If not, then, it may be deleted.
It's All You Need: First one-shot and songfic. I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did!
Stop Signs: Found the analogy in a book I was reading, and I fell in love with it. Based around the death of Fred, this is such a cute, fluffy tale.
So, for now, I am sticking with one-shots on this site. I have so many one-shot ideas bouncing around, and I just submitted one that I'm very excited about. If you wish to read a chaptered fic of mine, or other one-shots that I may post on MNFF soon, visit my profile on fanfiction.net. My penname over there is Unspeakable53.
Thank you, and have an amazing day!
Adelaide always thought she was a normal girl. She went to school, had some friends, and had parents and brothers that loved her.
Something changed the night of the accident, though, and her entire world turned upside down. Two years later, she learned of a whole new world in which she supposedly belonged.
Follow Adelaide's story as she goes from a small, scared girl to an independent young woman. Watch as she journeys through this new and frightening place, and learns her role in it.

Wow.. very intense, that prologue was! It was so sad, too. I'm waiting for more, please! Nice work!
Author's Response: *gasp* A review!! *happy dance* You're my new favorite person! *squishes* Calming down now... Thanks; my beta still has the next chapter, but it's written and everything. I'll go rush her now. Lol, just kidding, but I'll write as fast as I can now that I know that the seventy something reads weren't just people saying, "Oh, that doesn't sound as good as I originally thought." Thanks! ~Manda
Summary: The Marauders help Harry celebrate his first Christmas while Lily tries to reconcile her old visions of Christmases with the reality of the war.
I'm rachelnotrach of Hufflepuff and this is my submission to the Great Hall Of Christmas' Past, Present and Future Challenge- Prompt 1.
Amazing, and very cute. I enjoyed every minute of it!
I think there might have been a timeline thing. James and Lily were killed on October 31st, 1981. If I remember right they went into hiding the beginning of October 1981, which means they can't have heard about the prophecy or anything yet on in December 1980. (The year your story takes place). Correct me if I'm wrong! :)
Other than that, I loved it alot! I love Sirius so much!
Author's Response: they didn't go under the protection of the fidelius charm until October 1981. It can be debated whether they were just lying low before that. We don't actually know when Snape told Dumbledore that the Potters we being targeted specifically though. I've always assumed that Dumbledore figured out it was going to be the Longbottom's or the Potter's before Snape told him who the target was. Dumbledore knew both families and knew they each defied Voldemort 3 times and they were expecting a baby at the end of July. Thanks for the review! Glad you liked it!
Summary: Everyone knows Luna and Neville are meant to be. But what happens when miscommunications and Hannah Abbott get in the way? Can a Gryffindor boy be intelligent enough to make the right choice? Can a Ravenclaw girl be brave enough to fight for her love?
Well, this is definitely unlike anything I've come across on this site! Hannah is usually really sweet, but for this story, you made her seem far from that :) It was interesting to see her act that way. I want to know why Neville fell for her...? Hm. ;)
The beginning was really nice, a little cliched, maybe, but well-written all the same. Please continue!
Author's Response: Ha ha. Yeah, I know it's cliche, but it's supposed to be. This was meant to be fluff from the start. Glad you like my version on Hannah, lol. Of course she's normally sweet, but don't we all get a little defensive around our man's ex? ;)
Summary: One above, two below. We know the boy's story, what about the girl's? One-Shot about Hermione's torture by Bellatrix.
Haven't come across a story like this before. I really enjoyed it! Your description was amazing. Nice work!
Author's Response: Hey, thanks! I'm glad you liked it. This was just a bit of a breather from something else I was working on. I think I

Nearly eighty years have passed since the Battle of Hogwarts, yet Padma Patil cannot banish the string of tragic memories from her mind. A part of her still holds onto them as a way to see the faces of those she has lost once more.
Her memories tell the story of a young woman too afraid to fight against Voldemort’s regime. Throughout her final year at Hogwarts, Padma had been forced to choose between defying the Death Eaters and keeping her loved ones safe. Her decision is one that will ultimately haunt her for the rest of her life.

Wow. I'm very sorry this doesn't have more reviews.
I really liked the concept. I don't think I've read a detailed story with Padma as the main character like that. You really stayed in character, even if we don't get to see much of Padma and Parvati, you can tell one's a Gryffindor and one's a Ravenclaw.
Padma comes across as being very practical in her decisions, as Ravenclaws are. Your characterization was done really well.
I've always wanted to read a story from the point of view of someone who was not for the Dark Lord, but not really wanting to take part in the fight against him. I was really pleased with this!
Author's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to review (and for being the first!). I'm so happy you liked Padma and thought she was In Character. She was sort of a challenge to write as I didn't always agree with her at times :). And it makes me so glad to hear that you were pleased with the outcome. Thanks again for this wonderful review! xx Ariana
Summary: Three years after the Battle, the Weasley family is once again shattered by grief.
A songfic, based on Tears in Heaven by Eric Clapton.
That fic was unlike any other fic I have ever read. You always read about Rose being Hermione and Ron's first born.
I love the song, and it fit really well with the story. You incorporated it nicely.
Hermione's thoughts were completely understandable and realistic, and the only part that wasn't very realistic was the fact that Ron and Hermione have a child at the age of 21, but I understand you had to do that if you wanted to make it canon.
I would have loved to see other points of view of this story, you know, maybe give us a peek out how Ron was holding up?But of course, this was from her mother's thoughts to her daughter, again, understandable.
All in all, great job! Well done!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I'm glad you thought I incorporated the song well, because I've never written a songfic before, so I wasn't sure if I did it that well. I know it seems unlikely that they would have a child at that age... my reason is that Jean was an accident (which is why Hermione isn't really sure what to think when she finds out). But yes, preferably they would have been a bit older, but I didn't want to leave it any longer because I thought it would be unlikely that they would go on and have another child quite soon after their first died... so there had to be a reasonable space between Jean's death and Rose's birth. I did think about including Ron's point of view more, but I didn't for a few reasons. The first is that I find it very difficult to write his character, and the second that I wanted it to be very personal between Hermione and the reader (and Jean, too). Maybe at some point I'll write another story about this event or around the same time and include some other perspectives, I'm not sure. Anyway, thanks for the review!!!
This is The Silver Doe from Deathly Hallows, but I felt it should be told from Snape's point of view... let me take you to the wintry Forest of Dean, when a mysterious silver doe leads Harry to the Sword of Gryffindor, and one leads Ron to Harry...
Disclaimer: I don't own any of these characters, J. K. Rowling does, and she gets all the money. I just have fun with it.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Your analogy of the lion in winter was done very well, and it wasn't like any story I've seen before. You kept Snape in character, which can be hard to do at times. Good work!
Summary: Molly Weasley knows all about chess. Yet she sees not what is right across the battlefield. Love is the only thing that may distract her long enough for a checkmate...
Haha snogging until she fainted.. LOL.
This was really cute, I love next-gen, and I also love how you didn't portray Lucy and Molly as stuck up prisses, as most fanfics do.
For the most part you characterization was great, excpet maybe for Lysander. Aquamarine eyees seems a little GaryStu-ish, but maybe it's just because we're seeing him through Molly's eyes, and she fancies him, which would make sense. :)
Author's Response: Thank you for the compliment! I thought that just because Molly and Lucy had a father like Percy they wouldn't be like him. Sorry about Lysander's Gary-Stue-ishness, but if you fancy someone you do tend to make them seem a little Gary-Stu-ish.
Summary: Lisa Turpin is a Ravenclaw; she's always been a thinker rather than a doer, but somehow she finds herself fighting for her life and the love of her life all at the same time.
I am h_vic of Hufflepuff and this is my final for Carole's Missing Moments class
I really reallu loved this, and I'm sorry it doesn't have more reviews!
A lot of people portray people in the battle having so much courage. I'm not sure why, but people really have a fascination with brave people. But Lisa is not a brave person, and the fact that she knows this makes it so much more enjoyable. She's an honest character. However, I think she's more courageous than she thinks she is, if that makes sense?
Very well done, I had shivers during some parts. I really felt the anxiety from Lisa, and I love the little quartet thing you dreamed up, that was cute :) I was almost ready to cry when the minute she kisses Terry he dies..
I loved this to pieces, every part of it, the plot and the ideas. It was so good! The last line was amazing too, your characterization of Lisa was truly brilliant.
Author's Response: Thanks for such a lovely review.
It was interesting to explore a character who wanted to do what she thought was right, but wasn't really all that brave, because I think there must have been quite a few students fighting at the battle who felt like that. But you are right about her having more courage than she realises. I'm glad that you liked her characterisation.
I really like playing the dynamics of this little quartet. I've written them before in the post-DH world from Michael's perspective, and one day I'll get around to telling Anthony's story too.
Summary: A tribute to Harry and Hermione's friendship.
Nominated for the 2011 Best Poetry QSQ! Thanks, Gina/Gmariam!
This was absolutely beautiful. Just like their friendship. Well done!
Author's Response: Thank you!
Summary: It is the 1st of Septemeber, 2016 - eighteen years after the end of the Second Wizarding War - and George Weasley is utterly displeased with the lack of chaos at Platform Nine and Three Quarters.
First off, I just wanted to say how much I love this chapter title.. I was so confused at first! :) This story is one of the cutest that I've read in a long while. I loved loved loved it!
The portrayal of George was really accurate. You can tell that he has tried and succeeded to live a normal life, but the loss over Fred is obviously still there. His love for laughs and jokes have not faded, which I love, because some fanfics portray George becoming a very angsty and serious person, and I just can't see that happening. Neville is completely in character too. Sometimes, I find, when authors are writing next-gen eras, they often lose the basis of a character, due to the fact that now the character is all grown up, and no longer a teenager, as we are used to seeing them. But, you did a brilliant job!
I'm super excited to see what George has in store for the platform! It was the summary that really caught my attention, it made me smile,
Great job on your first chapter! I'm excited to read the following ones! :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much for your thoughtful review! :) It's my first fanfiction and I can't tell you how pleased I am that someone liked it so much. I do hope you feel the same after you read the next chapter. You may find the serious side of George then. Or not. Maybe it's completely normal. Let's see. Also, there's a little bit of a surprise but not completely unbelievable. But most of all, I hope everyone stays in-character. That's most important to me. Please feel free to point out if they don't. And I'd love any ideas/suggestions for plot development. Again, thanks so much for your encouraging words! Hope you have a lovely day/night :P
Summary: Lily Evans finds herself disappointed when James Potter begins dating a new student during seventh year. A casual conversation about how to deal with it leads to unexpected consequences for her…and Sirius Black.
I loved this! This has to be one of the most unique fanfiction I have ever come across.
A dialogue-only writing style had to be difficult, but you did a great job! I only got a lost a few times, but it was really easy to see who was talking to who, most of the time. No narrative means that one won't be able to visualize the settings very well, but it was actually easy to visualize the setting. I could tell when they were at in the common room, or at the wedding and so on, and you didn't describe a hint of it! Well done!
I was always drawn to the Lily/Sirius pairing, even if I LOVE James/Lily. Sirius/Lily is so anti-cliched, and it adds such a twist to the Lily/James story. Although this story ended James/Lily, no doubt there were feelings of attraction between Lily and Sirius- and you didn't describe a thing!
I really enjoyed this, and thought it was really impressive! Great work!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm so happy to get such a positive first review! Yes, I had my doubts about posting the dialogue only thing, so I'm glad it worked for you. And I'm totally a J/L shipper, but this really captured my interest (as does Remus and Lily at times...) James and Lily did end up together, after all-just with a little detour. Thanks again for the amazing review, I really appreciate it!! ~Gina :)
