Summary: Rose Weasley didn't mean to be different. She didn't intend to stand out in her family. She didn't expect to be Sorted... into Slytherin.
If you have an account on the beta boards, I might be able to beta for you.
Summary: Teddy Lupin appears to be surrounded by love and happiness, yet sometimes death and loneliness overshadow everything he does.
Wow. You did a really good job with Teddy and Victoire. I haven't read many fics or books in second person, but this was really well written. Good job!
Author's Response: Thanks very much for the review, I"m glad you liked my characterisations. I really like writing in second person, but I know a lot of people don't like it much, so I'm glad you liked that too. Thanks :) ~Katrina
Summary: Severus Snape is dead, but who is to write the epitaph for his tombstone, and what is there to say?
Yay, I'm a carrot!
Author's Response: Wow! I never knew that my fic writing was powerful enough to turn readers into root vegetables! Perhaps I should put up a warning? Also, if I were to eat a certain root vegetable that had a brain and a personality and (possibly) magical talents, would I get super night vision? Not that I would ever, ever eat any sentient root vegetables.... unless they were tasty.... You're not tasty, are you?
Hannah Abbott was up to her eyeballs in a business she scarcely knew how to run. Out of money and sleep deprived, all she could do was grind out day after day, but she couldn't last forever that way.
And then Neville walked into her pub and into her life. Things might've started looking up, after all.
Happy Birthday, WeasleyMom! Loved the story, by the way.
I'm glad you liked it, and I shall pass on the message. :D
Summary: It is the Easter holiday at Hogwarts and Charlie Weasley has decided to stay at school instead of going home. He told his mother that he needed to study, but Charlie has something, or rather someone, on his mind.
Maybe this year a certain Metamorphmagus will become more than a friend?
Thank you to Natalie (hestiajones) for beta'ing this story.

Happy Easter, MNFF'ers.
I liked it.
Author's Response: Thank you. ~Carole~
Summary: Set in the Marauder's fifth year, follow the story of James and Lily. Witness the rollercoaster of emotions, feel the tensions running high, experience the drama that only the Marauders can bring.
Follow their lives, their laughs, their loves.EXCERPT
It’s been a month, and the wound is still raw and fresh as ever in my mind. It hurts to know that what we had once is now gone. All because of one word, one choice.
I know that Dumbledore always says that it’s the choices we make that set us apart. But I hate the fact that we are forced to make a choice and take a side. If only he hadn’t been in Slytherin, if only he hadn’t been into the Dark Arts, if only he wasn’t taking that side, if only he didn’t call me that word.
Summary: Several years after the final battle, Dudley Dursley is struggling to come to terms with his past and the things he has done wrong. His life is turned upside down when he meets a charming young witch and is drawn into a path that leads him back into his cousin's world.
I like what you've done with Dudley. Might I suggest for the epilogue flashing forward for their daughter's first trip on the Hogwarts Express? Dudley in Platform 9 3/4 could be hilarious.

Author's Response: Pretty god, huh? :D
“Lord Voldemort has never had a friend, nor do I believe that he has ever wanted one.”
-Dumbledore, HBP, ch 13
Dumbledore was rarely wrong, only once did Lord Voldemort desire a friend. It started out as only a game, but became so much more…
This is the story of how the teenaged Tom Riddle met a unique individual and slipped from cold indifference, to affection, to friendship, to romance. Discover how even Voldemort’s cold and callow heart was once broken beyond repair. This is for anyone curious about how an imperfect love warped and twisted a corrupt young man into the Dark Lord.
I really love your stories. Good job and I hope to read more soon!.
Author's Response: Thank you very much and I hope you'll keep reading them! :)
Summary: Whew, those thirteen years were nasty, but Voldemort's back and better than ever. He's got plenty to do, consolidating a power base, punishing traitors, and not letting the haters get him down, but he's spared some time to look over the custody agreement he signed fourteen years ago...
Annabel Curry wanted to spend the summer getting a tan, perfecting her Cheering Charms, and ensnaring Terry Boot. Instead, she's spending it with her dad the mass murderer and his unshaven goons. Oh yeah, and the shower doesn't work, AND NO ONE BUT HER SEEMS TO CARE.
First dates. Sparkly nail polish. Magical plumbing fiascos. Some heartwarming father-daughter moments. And some not-so-heartwarming ones.
Please up date soon!
Summary: Weddings don't just happen you know! They need planning.
Cormac in the closet! Oh my. It must have been fun getting him out. Sorry for the bad joke. Great as usual and sorry I haven't reviewed before.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
Cormac in the closet, indeed, couldn't happen to a nicer guy.-N-
Summary: What if, on that fateful October night, it was not Lily's sacrifice that saved Harry, but James' sacrifice that saved them both? What if Lily is left to pick up the broken pieces of her life after its been shattered into a million pieces? Who would be there to rescue her? Who would get her through the night? This is a story of loss, of pain, of hopelessness, and ultimately, of healing.
After much deliberation and input from all you guys who have read thus far, I have officially decided to continue this story. It was initially supposed to be a one-shot, but I've decided I already have too much of my heart invested in it to quit now. :) Second chapter in progress. Thanks, all! Advice and reviews are still very welcome!
This is really good. I was crying at the end.
Author's Response: Thank you! It is a great compliment to me that I could move you to tears. :)
Summary: Four Valentine's Day balls. Four very different encounters.
Scorpius Malfoy and Rose Weasley could never exactly be accused of getting along, but four days over four years test the nature of their relationship. From hatred, to sympathy, to attraction, to perhaps something deeper, Scorpius and Rose find themselves in uncharted territory. Can they rise above their ingrained dislike for one another? Or will their prejudices keep them from realising the true reason they can so easily get under each other's skin?
Thank you for writing this. I love this story. Please write a sequel!
Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it! I'm not writing a sequel I'm afraid but I'm currently writing a chaptered Next Generation fic and I can promise there'll be a healthy dose of Scorpius and Rose in that. Thanks so much for your kind review!
Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs. Throw in Lily Evans and Severus Snape and you will wonder how all six managed to graduate from Hogwarts without being expelled.
WARNING: Contains: Secrets, Padfoot, Padfoot singing, Padfoot, and emotional Lily, Slytherins, and Padfoot.
Did I forget Padfoot?
This is iMusic17 of Slytherin writing for the final in the MWPP class on the Beta Boards. .
I love the very last bit. Will Sirius serenade me too?
Author's Response: In all honesty. . . do you really want to endure the voice cracks? :) Thanks for the review! Ellie
Summary: There is a thin line between love and hate. There is an even thinner line between Gryffindor and Slytherin; the willingness to do anything to achieve their goals. Gryffindors cannot see the big picture, and if they come to a decision to choose between the greater good and their loved ones or himself, they would sacrifice the world for their friends.
Slytherins are different. We know the value of sacrifice, but there is something else that separates us from those who wear red and gold. We will fight as hard as we can, in any way possible, even if it may be seen as unjustified or morally wrong. Gryffindors let their consciences get in the way of the greater goal. We don’t, but no one believes that we can fight for the right cause. They remember us as the evil, idiotic, or simply power hungry. They don’t remember us for what we are; who we are. We’re here to change that.
They will remember us, and they will remember us as those who fought all prejudice and cruelty simply because were were done with it. They will remember us, and the next time they think of a phoenix rising from the ashes they will remember this phrase:
Remember the Slytherins.

Happy birthday! I hope your day is filled with HP references and hugs!
Author's Response: Thanks! Oh, there are many HP references. I tend to take Nick's route, though, with huts .....
Thanks for the review! <3
Summary: Draco Malfoy looks back at his childhood now that it is over.
Very very good. You made me cry. I'm glad that Draco doesn't fall into a pit of dispair after the battle. He changed for the better. I also like how you incorporated Hermione. I could see him liking her in the books. It always seemed like a possibility to me.
Author's Response: I'm a bit of a Dramione shipper at times, so I am rather fond of the idea that he liked her. I believed that Draco probably had too much pride to fall into a 'pit of despair' as you call it. Thanks for the review, and I'm sorry I made you cry. Or perhaps I'm glad. I don't know; it kind of depends on why you were crying...
Summary: When he sees her, Colin's heart starts to race. And now he's got her all to himself for an evening - or at least he did.
This is Acacia Carter of Hufflepuff writing (again) for the Inaugural Great Hall Cotillion of 2012.
I thought that this was very well written. Good job!
She was the first to accept me for who I was, Muggle father and all. The teachers didn’t count. Dumbledore accepted me out of duty; Slughorn accepted me for his own personal gain. She accepted me out of love.
Would you have been any different if you had had your world ripped apart and your heart shattered until there was nothing left to love with?
This is a story about a boy and a decision that he regretted. A decision he had made a few times before. Tom Riddle made the decision to say so many times those words that would eventually be his downfall.
I really like this story and thought you did well on the characterization.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! I'm really glad you enjoyed the story. I'm relieved that you thought that the characterisation was good because it was difficult to get the balance right with Riddle.
Summary: A loose sonnet about two people coming together at Hogwarts one night.
And no, they are not James Potter and Lily Evans. Shocking, I know.
Written for Carole/EquinoxChick because she's so awe…inspiring. Happy Birthday, my dear!
Happy birthday, Equinox Chick! And great poem.
Author's Response: Thanks so much! ~Gina :)
Summary: At the start of her seventh year, Lily Evans doesn’t know quite what to expect of her new duties as Head Girl. Her only certainty is that Potter will manage to mess them up somehow. However, even she couldn’t have foreseen exactly how much he could mess things up.
James isn’t too worried about being Head Boy. He is more concerned by whether Evans would finally get over herself and see that he really had grown up a bit. However, their shared responsibilities were going to change things more that he knew.
Did Sirius do that to get them together? It seems like something he would do. Great characterization of all the characters. Good job!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you liked it. Sirius was hoping for the exact outcome he got, although I'm not sure he would have predicted the Hogsmeade trip. He was fed up of seeing James mooning over Lily and not doing anything, so he came up with this prank to try and kick start things. Of course, he didn't ever consider that it could merely have resulted in a lot of awkwardness between the two of them, or that Lily could have got angry and blamed James, but that's Sirius through and through. He's just lucky that I want Lily and James to get together just as much as he does! ~Sophie
