I'm coming back for more! Please post again soon...your cliffie and great action has me hooked. Poor Ron...he always gets the worst after Harry; broken leg, hurt feelings...now the Cruciatus Curse...what'll be next?
Summary: After a long drawn out war, Harry searches the battleground for survivors. Eventually he stumbles over the last person you would have thought he would have hoped to see...
This is very good. I'm sorry it ended the way it did because with the apologies and acceptances you opened so many possibilities for further stories. I really like how you mentioned the full circle of Harry's and Draco's relationship and would have liked to see where you took it; how Ron, Hermione and Ginny reacted to this change after so many years of animosity. I liked this story very much.
Summary: Uncle Vernon has a bad toothache, and the only dentist who can see him on a Saturday is a Dr. Granger. What he doesn't know is gonna hurt him. Open wide!
Great story! I'm grinning from ear to ear...I knew Hermione was cleaver and this just proves it. I'm going back to read it again!
Summary: Sad and lonely Harry stumbles on a room that holds a very large secret. He awakes the next morning to find that he is definately not at Hogwarts anymore. Where is he? He has no clue, but the truth could help him greatly through certain hard times. PleaseRR (AU)
Great start...quite sad, but there may be a glimmer of hope. I hope you update soon.
Barely sixteen years old and fearing for his mother's life, Draco stepped up in his father's absence to take his place amongst the Death Eaters. The following year at Hogwarts School was, without a doubt, the hardest he had ever endured. Now seventeen, the young Malfoy seeks to keep safe all he loves by doing the opposite, and taking the golden advice Albus Dumbledore had left him minutes before his death.
This chapter was well worth the wait and I can sympathize with you over writer's block. Anyway, I can understand McGonagall's and Moody's reluctance to believe the Malfoys, but Dumbledore does have a valid point. I just hope that those two stop and think a moment before proceeding ahead. It looks like Ginny's already made up her mind about Draco and I'm glad he and Narcissa have her support.
Another wonderful chapter that shows a completely different side of Draco than the one we know from canon. Two things grabbed me as I read. First, I loved the reference to his encounter with Harry and Ron on their first train ride to Hogwarts all those years ago. Getting to learn about how it felt from Draco's perspective is what grabbed my attention because I'd never considered how he viewed it. Second, Harry deserved to see Draco's apology to Ginny. As much as I like Harry and understand why he broke up with Ginny, there are some life lessons in those few paragraphs, hard ones at that, that he needs to learn and can do so only by being part of them. Keep the chapters coming... this is one of my all-time favorite stories!
All-time? Wow! That made my week! :D
I have a lot of respect for Harry, too, and I feel pretty bad for him at the end of this chapter. But I think you're right: he needed to see that. I'm so glad you think so, too!
Thank you so much for your reviews. :D
Over fifty people died at the Battle of Hogwarts. There are dozens of stories of loss, betrayal, heroism and sacrifice. These are some of those stories.

Your Luna Logic is absolutely wonderful! I can see her pondering these subjects as she races through the Hogwarts corridors with Dean and definitely agree with everything she decides. I hope your next chapter comes out soon. I absolutely love this story.
Author's Response: Of all of the heads Iíve tried to get inside, Lunaís was most difficult. I tried to keep her inner monologue apparently logical. If I succeeded then Iím really happy. Next will be an original character. -N-
Your chapter has given me new insight into Cho's character. Ever since her disasterous date with Harry in OotP I have not been a fan of this character. However, you have given me much to consider and I am actually contemplating changing my opinion of someone I do not like.
Author's Response: This story was created from my curiosity about Choís arrival. She was the first of the DA to arrive after the twins, Ginny and Lee (who all arrived together). I know that a lot of people donít like Cho sheís often shown to be feeble and tearful. But she got the call and went and fought. Why? -N-
Yes! A Madam Pomfrey story to start things off! I realize that canon is strictly from Harry's point of view and it is very nice to read the thoughts of someone different. Your Matron is exactly the way I've always pictured her, caring and strict at the same time: her attitude that she's actually the students' "mother" for ten months out of the year choked me up a bit as did her silent cataloguing of the contents of her ledger. I'm glad Madam Pince came in to keep Madam Pomfrey company during the last few minutes of solitude. Thanks for writing this fantastic story. I look forward to reading about more of the unmentioned combatants.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. These stories started with the idea for what is now chapter 4 (Protheroeís Perspective) and were not written in order. This was in fact the last one I wrote but itís pre-battle, so it needed to be chapter 1. It seems that your mental picture of Madam Pomfrey is very similar to mine. I donít think that we ever saw Pince and Pomfrey together in the books, but they are (at least in my mind) ladies of a similar age who are not teachers. I can see them being friends.
