I am a Navy Mom and still have a teenage daugher still in high school. When my kids were younger they told me repeatedly that I had to read the HP books. I resisted till I took them to see the first movie. I've been a fan since that day! I've read and re-read the books and can't wait for the next one!

Thanks for taking the time to read my stories! I hope you enjoy them!

This is to all the readers that check out reviews before starting a new series or story... CHECK THIS ONE OUT! It just keeps getting better and better!

What a great series! Anyone who ships Remus/Tonks will absolutely love the way you have these two interacting! I really like the way they are both a little gun shy from being hurt in the past and being so determined to do things right this time!

I can't help but wonder what else you will come up with for them to go through.

I absolutely love Tonk working on the side because being a junior Auror doesn't pay so well and using her metamorph abiities to go undercover are great!

Pretty soon you'll have reviewers clamoring for more, 'cause you already have my appetite whetted for the next chapters!

Eris is a very unique character, and you have created a series that lends credibility to a Severus romance. I've enjoyed reading and getting to know this story! I can only hope it goes on and on!!


A Fresh Start by Scarlet Crystal
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 87]

Summary: Susan Murley was an ordinary girl. She enjoyed school, lived with her parents, and had a pet cat named Misty. There was nothing strange about her. At least, that was what she thought. Suddenly, her parents are fighting about a mysterious problem that she doesn't understand. An owl flies through the hall window. Her mother has an important secret to reveal that will change her life forever. Disclaimer: All original Harry Potter characters and related belong to JK Rowling, bless her, and Warner Brothers. Susan Murley, her family, and her classmates (with the exception of Ginny) are characters created by me for the purpose of the story. That means OC (Original Character)... Thanks for reading!

I have over 10,000 reads! Thanks... Please read and review, especially.

I really liked this chapter... your perspective is really unique... keep it up and write some more!


Summary: My very first fanfiction I've come to create after pining away the days to the coming sixth book...sigh...

Harry and his friends return to Hogwarts after a very intense fifth year, and find themselves once again amidst the harsh realitites of the coming Wizarding World war. Lots of action, danger and maybe even a little unexpected romance...(What else would it be for Harry?) Read and then review if you'd like! ^_^

I came across your story today and couldn't stop reading it till I read the whole thing! I really like the whole thing even though I think Ron is being a prat! LOL

Author's Response: Hehehe...I can't believe how angry Ron makes some of you! hehe...maybe I am just more immune to it, because like I said in a previous review response, I am very much like him. I am glad to know my story has kept you interested and thanks for the awesome review!


Civility by SecretKeeper
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 341]

Summary: THE LAST CHAPTER IS IN! Read, review and enjoy! The first battle of the second War- Dementors illegally issuing the Kiss on Death Eaters- A murder in the Weasley family- Voldemort's plans- Dumbledore's and Harry's struggle. In the midst of this chaos and hardship, Hermione is left feeling slightly disheartened. When Harry and Ron are temporarily unavailable to befriend her, an ironic and seemingly platonic relationship is born. Will it ease the pain of the War's influence, or will it only create further turmoil for a girl that needs anything but? And in the end, a terrible decision is left to be made; one that no natural person would envy.

You write a pretty interesting story. Your characters are pretty well rounded. I almost quit reading there for a while because it seemed like there wasn't anything bad that was going to happen to Harry, which is pretty unlikely, but then you had him get hurt a couple of times. I had to really admire some of your concepts, they've been very original. Finding Merlin's original spell and then having it completely deplete him perked my interest again. Your sense of humor is very entertaining and I find myself wishing that Jo Rowling would give Harry a touch of the spine you've instilled in his character.

Author's Response: I have a feeling that she will, although I very seriously doubt it will be anywhere near the degree to which I pushed him.

Your story just keeps getting better and better! I can't wait to see who Harry talks with and what his dark detector finds with Snape's skin from the Dark Mark! I'm giving you a 10... the first I've ever given!

Great Chapter! I'm looking forward to seeing what happens when Malfoy shows up! When will James learn the truth about Peter? Will James and Lily ever be able to communicate with Harry?

Author's Response: Thank you, I'm glad you liked it. I will, obviously not answer your question about James, I will however tell you that good things come to those who wait. As for the communication - No! There will never be any two way comminication between Harry and his parents.

Pretty interesting for a first chapter. I felt like you might have rushed to get everything you wanted in there but you did really well. You might want to proof read before you post... spell check doesn't always get everything. I'll keep an eye out for your next chapter.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Yeah spelling is not my best quality. As for the storieline I felt that I needed to get the reader to the point of where my storie begins, kinda like playing catchup. Hope the next chapter will be better, it has been summited. Thanks again for the review.
