Starting Over is still an active story, but this unfortunately does not mean it will be fluidly updated, just that it will come up with a new chapter whenever I have the time. I am taking my time with each chapter, making sure it's the best work I am capable of within the realm of the Potterverse. I'm conjecturing that this will be my final work of fan fiction for Harry Potter, as I'm growing more of an affinity for my own original stories, using the experience I've gained from my work on here and other fan fiction sites.
Again, I do want to say how sorry I am that I did not complete In Nomine Amoris to its end. I could tell you how it was going to end, though I doubt it matters to anyone at this point, moved by Deathly Hallows as we were. I also doubt that anyone is going to read this profile information, but oh, well. It's here, just in case.
Summary: Entering his sixth year at Hogwarts, Remus realizes that he has to face quite a conundrum. Should he follow his lustful heart, and find comfort in the arms of a beautiful young woman, or not dishonor James, and stay away from her entirely? Caught in between the heat of the moment and what is right, Remus finds himself in a situation that he cannot control.
Whoa. Well, I did like it...the formatting is a bit off, though. It's so hard to read, when all the lines are so close together.
Author's Response: Okay, I\'ll keep that in mind. Thank you =^.^=
Author's Response: Update! Update! Yay! *does the update dance.* Okay, I fixed the formatting bit!

Ha! Good show.
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing.
Summary: “Amor Non Mutuus” is Latin for “Unrequited Love”.
This is the story of the tragic love life of Merope Gaunt, Voldemort’s mother. It is told in first person from Merope’s point of view. She has deep feelings for Tom Riddle Senior, the son of the village squire; and tries to make him fall in love with her. However, Merope learns the hard way that a “love” potion can create only a powerful obsession, not true love.
Additional warning: bad language.
Finally, I've read another story of yours! I must say, I like the idea. The title is alluring (which doesn't always happen when a title's in Latin, because oftentimes the wording can get awkward), it works so well! I hadn't been able to read this fic of yours for awhile, because I just turned 17 and can now legally read it. I did notice what I thought were some typos, but maybe they were British spellings of words...I'm American, and wouldn't know.
You captured Tom's initial manner (when he looked upon her with disgust) and his reactions to being tricked very well. I'd totally feel the same way if I'd been duped like Tom was. I found it a little difficult to sympathize with Merope, though I'm not sure if I was supposed to or not.
Till next time,
Thanks for the kind review! To answer your question about the typos - they\'re not typos, they\'re typically British spellings. I can understand if that confused you.
Strangely enough, I\'m more of a Merope sympathiser. I suppose that\'s because she\'s suffered a lot more than Tom has. This story is meant to be a sad one, but it evokes different feelings towards different characters, depending on the reader.
Summary: The war has been over for nearly a year. Voldemort fell, but at a heavy price, leaving the wizarding world’s three beloved heroes prisoners in their own minds. After a year of talking with Healers and tearful visits to St. Mungo’s, Arthur Weasley is desperate. He’ll do anything to help them, even venture into the Department of Mysteries to obtain a possible cure…
Received highest marks and Order of the Hospital Wing, First Class in the Harry Hospital Wing Project!!!
I'm intrigued. This is intense, disturbing, and very interesting.
Author's Response: Haha, thanks! Intense, disturbing, and interesting are three things I always shoot for in my stories ;)
Leaving me hanging...and it's so depressing how they're trapped in their own minds. I noticed one mistake (I think), and I really hate to point out any inconsistencies, because I can't stand it when people do it to me. You said that Voldemort had 'cast an Apparation Ward when he arrived' around the house. Now that he's dead, wouldn't the ward that he had cast disappear, as the bonds on Ron and Hermione did? And then they'd be able to Apparate the heck out of there? Well, just something to consider. Great work, keep at it!
Author's Response: Hmm, you could be right, but as far as I know Apparation wards are permanent until they are removed. Think about Hogwarts. The founders and Dumbledore are long dead, but the Apparation wards are still in place. I could be wrong =) Ah well! Thanks for reviewing!
Summary: This is my poetic version of Harry and Ginny's very public kiss in the common room. My version of the kiss and everyone's reaction.
Author's Response: Thank You! Your so nice. You have no idea what I went through to get here...
Summary: Draco has realized what a horrible choice joining the Death Eaters was. He has been forced to do things so terrible he can't even sleep at night. Now it is time for Voldemort's punishment for Draco's failures, but an enemy arrives just in time... will he believe that Draco is truly repentant, or will he let him die at the hand of his master?
I'm sorry, but I just can't read this. It would help you divided the one paragraph you have into many smaller paragraphs.
Author's Response: I\'m going to go fix the problem, I didn\'t relaize it had posted all in one paragraph. I promise, that\'s not the way I wrote it. :) Come back and read it once I\'ve fixed it, ok?
Summary: Katie Bell finally musters enough courage to ask a certain Quidditch Captain a question. The result? Definitely not what she expected!
Katie's POV. KB/OW fluff. Sigh...
Good use of Stream of Consciousness. I don't see that often!
Author's Response: Thanks. Yeah I find that writing in this way helps me understand characters better. It\'s the little, seemingly insignificant thoughts that are fun to read and write about. Thanks :)
Summary: What happened to Draco? Nobody knows what he told Myrtle. But does Myrtle know what he told her? Now there's a question...
It was very interesting. Dark, but I liked it.
Summary: One year later, Ginny pays her respects to the man who sacrificed his life so that her enemy could live.
Sad, very sad. But powerful.
Author's Response: That\'s definitely the effect I was going for. Thanks for the review :)
Summary: Hermione come shome from work at theMinistry to a surprise: Chocolate Frogs. Lots of Chocolate Frogs. What is Ron up to? A sugary sweet one shot.
Haha, adorable! The idea was way sweet, and I was just in the mood for this sort of story, as it's my parent's anniversary today. Tres bien!
Author's Response: Happy Anniversary to your parents! I love a cutesy proposal.
Early Christmas morning, not a Malfoy or Weasley was stirring...except Draco and Ginny, who met for Christmas breakfast and ended up making a meal of Christmas kisses.
*A Tale of Two Matchmakers holiday outtake*
Oooh. What else is there to say? This ficlet was indeed a guilty pleasure! Happy Christmas!
Author's Response: Why the guilt? Are you cheating on a H/G ship? :D I feel more guilt when I read \'classics\' like Anna Karennina and think \'All these people are stupid!\' :D
Summary: Ginny Weasley is living with a terrible secret. She is pregnant with Harry Potter’s child, but in a world where Voldemort rules and Harry is dead (or so everyone assumes), this is a deadly position to be in. Forced into marrying Draco Malfoy, Ginny must find a way to survive while hiding her pregnancy and the child that could turn out to be the next saviour of the wizarding world.
This is a very tragic, heartrending story that deserves loads of praise. Even though I consider myself a Draco/Ginny shipper, I am able to see your story clearly and as a more realistic alternative to the Draco/Ginny romance. Of course, this would probably never happen in Jo's series (but neither would more than half the fan fictions out there). But you've got something speical here, and I intend to keep reading it.
Summary: Hermione Granger is pursued by a relentless Draco Malfoy. And what a Malfoy wants, a Malfoy gets!
Made me laugh, a lot. Congrats on the win for the Quills!
Summary: DH SPOILERS! Young Teddy Lupin is going to leave for Hogwarts the next day. He is happy and excited... and maybe a little sad. Victoire Weasley is leaving for Hogwarts. She is happy and excited... and a little frightened. James Potter is neither sad, nor frightened, but he is excited.
Very good. I hope to see more soon! I'm not quite sure this fic fits in with the 'Humor' category, though. It's more 'General' or 'Post-Hogwarts', I would say, but to each their own.
Author's Response: I\'m not sure about the humor either... Thanks for your review, it\'s good to know that people like my work.
