Marissa and the Wizards by JCCollier
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 75]

Summary: Past Featured StoryTwo years after Voldemort's downfall, Headmistress McGonagall finds a puzzling decrease in new Muggle-born students. Consulting the magic Quill, she and Flitwick find even wizarding children being born without magical ability. Each year fewer students are listed. If the decline continues, within decades the classrooms of Hogwarts will be half empty. Concerned how far the problem spreads, McGonagall sends a message to the Quill schools of the other continents.

In Brazil, the world of magic is revealed to a young homeless girl. When Marissa cautiously accepts an education in the wizarding world, the choice will lead her to an object somehow tied to the unknown cause of the wizarding decline. But as she struggles to show any ability at all, she is unsure if she even belongs in their world. What role can a neglected street beggar have in events that wizarding schools of all the world may soon be part of?

The Dark Without a Face by QueenHal
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 11]

Summary: At Salem Witches’ Institute, the most prestigious academy for young witches in America, only a handful of girls are selected each year. Old wizarding families groom their young daughters from birth, hoping to be one of the few who get to brag at parties in the coming season about their child’s acceptance. What actually goes on at Salem is shrouded in secrecy, but the fact that it consistently produces the best and most powerful the American wizarding world has to offer seems to have been enough for the Bluebloods for centuries.


But when Libra Malfoy, daughter of foreign diplomats Scorpius and Rose Malfoy, is accepted, she’s not sure what to make of her mysterious new school. As she begins to investigate the strange happenings at Salem, she finds herself tangled in a web of deceit and danger. Could Salem’s methods be rooted in something sinister? It’s only too possible…

Another fantastic chapter in an excellent story.
I like the fact that Dieter is riddled with guilt for hurting an innocent girl. There may be hope for him.
I hope we don't have to wait too long for the rest of the chapters. I'm suffering withdrawal already.

Is there any chance that any more of the chapters will be posted soon?
You can't be teasing us by starting a store as fantastic as this and just not finishing.

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing. I am currently busy with university work, but I'll hopefully be able to whip out a couple of chapters when the semester ends. ~ Tim the Enchanter

I won't comment on individual aspects of the novel, as i not qualified to make any criticisms, except to say, that If I enjoy it, and I want my son to read it, then you did it right. (I've been reading your books to my 4 year old.)
Another fantastic book from you. I've said before that I love the HP universe that JKR created and was very dissapointed that DH was the final book from her. It is immensely pleasing that there are talebted authors such as yourself who have picked up the baton and continued to keep it all alive. I think someone should turn your books into movies as well, or, event better, a TV series. (I keep picturing Sandra Bullock playing the Grimm sisters. Don't ask me why).
Do we really need to wait till 2011 to start getting AQATSA chapters? I'm going through withdrawal already.

Keep up the good work.
