So I've spent the past day reading this story...and I love it! I love the way you explain the riches of the families. It makes me feel like I'm actually there. I also love the characterization of your OCs. Wonderful! :D

 

Summary: Past Featured Story

Harry Potter had seen death - a lot of death. Friends had passed in his lifetime, more so than any one person should ever experience, but how much is too much, even for the Chosen One?

Ron Weasley is dead, leaving behind his wife and his best mate. How can these two cope with their Trio being cut down to two? And when danger lurks in the shadows, can they find the strength to fight for one another?

Ummm...WOW. I am not, in any way, shape, or form, an H/Hr person. I clicked on this story, though, because it seemed interesting, and now I'm hooked! I love that although they care very much for one another, that you still seem to capture the canon platonic-ness. They're living together for all of the right reasons. And the baby?? uuugggh is it Harry's or Ron's? Great job with the ambiguity...I thought it was going to come out with green eyes or a ton of black hair or something, lol. Keep up the excellent writing! :D

Author's Response:

You know, as much as I love the Harry/Hermione ship, I know it has its limits as to how much I can enjoy it. The characters have to be themselves and they have to be the same two that we know from teh books. They're not going to fall in bed together unless it's under bizarre circumstances or only after a lot of soul searching. I'm glad you like their interactions and think them in-character.

Genetically speaking, though, all babies come out with blue eyes, and the gradual gathering of mellanin determines their permanent colour in the first few months on infancy. And I honestly gave the baby girl Hermione's hair colour just to screw with people ad make them fret over whose baby it is. For I am evil like that. >:D

Thanks for reading and reviewing. It's always a gift to authors to receive feedback. I hope you enjoy future installments.

Summary:

Growing up fully immersed in the early sixteenth century English aristocracy, all Anne Boleyn ever wanted was the chance to make her own choices. When she is suddenly thrust into the magical world of wizards and witches, her life is forever altered.

The seventh son of a seventh son sifts through papers on his desk in the Headmaster’s Office. His cousin, the six son of a six son, toils in the shadows bring his brethren down. They both know that the support of Anne Boleyn will be essential.

This is the tale of Anne Boleyn, her efforts to preserve justice in the face of adversity, and her influence on society that continues to this day.

At the beginning of this tale, one may wish to note that Anne has five fingers on her right hand.

Everything is not what it seems.

This story is down for revisions. You can still read the prologue, though.

Date: 01/03/11 Title: Ascendio: The Untold Story of Anne Boleyn

I *love* the tudor era and I'm a huge fan of historical fiction, so needless to say I was excited to read this. Great job so far! I am having a bit of trouble picturing hogwarts in this time period, though. For example, do ladies wear gowns in addition to robes? Also, I understand Anne is muggle born and is therefore shy and awed, but I don't think the 16th century British aristocracy would have produced such a humble, well adjusted child. Just some thoughts...great job! :)

Author's Response: Thank you! I love the Tudor era as well :) it's so interesting! I imagine the girls wearing robes, but probably petticoats/dresses underneath, definitely nothing fancy. When sorceresses of legend are depicted, they're usually wearing robes - but you make a good point; I'll be sure to be more clear about that in later chapters. As for Anne, you'll see later on that she's not quite as "humble and well adjusted" as one might think. At the moment, she's just interested in making friends - as time goes on, her character flaws will definitely begin to shine through. Thank you for reviewing, I really appreciate that you seem to have put plenty of thought into my story! :D ~Virgil

 

Mere Wisps of Light by Equinox Chick
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 29]

Summary: It is Christmas Eve 1998, and the Magical World is shakily celebrating the first Christmas since Voldemort’s defeat.

For one, though, there is no reason to celebrate. Draco Malfoy sits alone in his room refusing to join his parents as they try to regain their social standing.

He does not want to see another Christmas, but he reckons without a redoubtable figure from his past.

My name is Equinox Chick from Hufflepuff, and this story has been written for prompt four of the Great Hall Christmas Challenge over at the MNFF Beta Boards.

Thank you to Natalie for a quick beta job on this – anything to get her away from Rabelais, I guess.

Comfort and Joy by Luna_Lover
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 13]

Summary: It's Christmas Eve, 1998, and Harry Potter is throwing a pity party. You could argue that Harry Potter is more justified than most in throwing such a party. Severus Snape, however, would be inclined to disagree with you.

And I Step Forward by hogwartsbookworm
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 6]

Summary: “Do you trust me, Alice?”

After all this strange talk of magic, and wizards, and schools I’ve never heard of, and invisible worlds? I bite my lip. I want, so badly, to say that I trust him. It would have been true up until last night.

I look him in the eyes. I almost think I can see his soul there.

I nod.

Still holding my hand, he steps forward. I close my eyes and allow him to tug me along.

Counting the Ways by ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 8]

Summary:

For over four years, Dean Thomas had been sending his polite regrets to his mum, begging off of coming home for Christmas. But when he sensed discord in the most recent letter from his Muggle family, he decided that he needed to stop making excuses and start counting his blessings.

What he found when he got there, however, proved to be more than just a simple family gathering.
