The Girl with Dreams by Equinox Chick
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 7]

Summary: She was a girl with dreams in her head. Dreams that people said would come to nothing.

He was a boy with brains to spare. But quiet so no one knew.

Orla Quirke and Stewart Ackerley. Two Ravenclaws with nothing in common except their house.

In their fourth year, everything changed.

This is a birthday present for the wonderful, lovely, amazing Alex (welshdevondragon) who has been a superb friend over the past year (and I hope for many more).

Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling, but my Spag Bol is sublime.

You take completely peripheral and new characters and make them so real! But it was really really depressing. Wonderful, moving, beautiful and all that, but depressing.

Author's Response: Ah, my love, I tell you I did actually cry a little when i wrote the last set of lines. there was a definite moment when I hated myself because I don't like killing people (apart from Lucius, but I don't like him) , but the story was for my friend Alex (welshdevondragon) who we call DeathLex, and I know she has a penchant for not-such-happy endings. Sorry :( ~Carole~

 

Early November Morning by BrokenPromise
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 7]

Summary:

On November 2nd, Petunia Dursley wakes up to a morning she hates to remember but will never forget.

This is BrokenPromise of Ravenclaw writing for the Great Hall Illustration for Inspiration Challenge 2012

Regrettably, I own neither the world nor the picture from which this fic is inspired. They belong to J K Rowling and Karaley Dargen respectively, and I hope that this is an adequate representation.

Character Death for Lily and James only.

Many thanks to Megan/noblefate who betaed this for me so quickly and helpfully!

Interesting perspective. We've never thought about how the only person unable to lift a wand in self-defence would feel in a castle raging with a wizarding war. I liked that touch about Filch's childhood too.

Author's Response: Thanks. I imagined it as through the eyes of a civilian caught in the middle of a military battle. Thanks for reading!

Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 13]

This is beautiful, but may be it would read better with more dialogues and less summary (Harry remembering what Ginny said, what Teddy said...you do great dialogues, so you should include them) I think the bit about Teddy and Harry meeting the Potters deserve a separate story.

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing :) Yeah, this was one of my earlier fics *bad excuse alert* so I probably would do things differently if I wrote it now. The Harry and Teddy might get its own story at some point. It's one of those where I want to write it but have fifty other things I want to write as well. Anyway, glad you liked it!

Summary: When the sun dies, can the shadow exist?

George had liked Angelina since they were third years sharing blackberries, but Fred had got there first.

Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling; I just play in her world rather too much.

This is Equinox Chick of Hufflepuff and this is my entry for Round 1 of the Character Clinic Triathlon - Major Characters.

Another Horcrux Down by WeasleyMom
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 19]

Summary: Past Featured StoryThis story is a missing moment from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. We know Ron and Hermione descend into the Chamber of Secrets in search of basilisk fangs, and we know they succeed. But what exactly happened down there? This story provides a possible answer to that question.

This is WeasleyMom of Hufflepuff writing for the Illustration for Inspiration Challenge in the Great Hall.

My inspiration was a drawing done by Carole/EquinoxChick, featuring Hermione's hand stabbing the cup with a basilisk fang. Thanks, Carole! You unknowingly pushed me to write something I've had in my head since DH came out.

Thrilled to announce this story tied for third place in the challenge!

Holy Hufflepuff! This won a 2012 QSQ Award for Best Canon Romance, one-shot! I am thrilled and so, so grateful!

Wow, this is beautiful. A million times better than how the movie showed it. They botched the one thing I was curious about- what the horcrux makes Hermione see.

Author's Response: Yeah, the movie disappointed in that scene, didn't it? I have to learn to like it because it's the only Romione kiss I'm ever gonna see, but still. There was something missing. I'm so glad you thought this worked as a missing moment. Thanks for reading and taking the time to review--I really appreciate it! ~Lori

Unusual pairing but beautifully done. I loved how you brought out Minerva's conflicted childhood and adult loneliness.

Author's Response: Many thanks for the kind words. I figured there had to be more to this Pottermore business than an 18-year-old broken heart.

 

Teach My Feet to Fly by Equinox Chick
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 12]

Summary: Andromeda Black is not a girl who is reckless. Risks are for the foolhardy, and she is too clever for that. But she hasn't factored Ted Tonks' persistence into the equation of her life.

And Ted wants to teach her how to fly ...

This is Equinox Chick of Hufflepuff writing for Round 2 of the Character Clinic Triathlon - Minor Characters. I chose the Music prompt.

The song that Andromeda listens to in this story is River by Joni Mitchell. It is beautiful.

Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling. I am not Joni Mitchell. I am someone who admires both artists greatly.

Ta lotsly to the lovely Natalie (hestiajones) who beta'd this and is a truly fabulous friend.

Thank you for writing this-I've always felt Andromeda was a vastly underutilized character in canon. Please write more. And Regulus too.

Theodore Nott, the other Slytherin. Who is this mysterious person who remains in the background. Who are his friends? Whose side is he on? Does anyone know? Does he know?

Date: 07/29/12 Title: Chapter 1: Nott: Father and Son

Useful? Decorative? If I was Araminta I would return from the dead and strangle this man. And I hate how the snatcher gets off the hook.
As for Pansy- well, you get back what you give, i suppose.
A well-written story and of course it accords perfectly with the 'Northumbrian canon"!
The Notts- what do I say? Hated the father from the beginning, and whatever sympathy I had for the son was lost before the end, but very very realistic depictions. And these people hold the key to Arthur's treasure? Oh no!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
Casual sexism, always guaranteed to annoy. :-D However, Thornton Nott is not exactly forward-thinking or progressive. You aren’t supposed to like the Notts, but stories need villains, and Theodore will be making several appearances very soon.
The Round Table Knights (and most people reading this won’t know why we’re talking about them) were an unpleasant bunch. The tales are of betrayal, incest, rape, extra-marital affairs and sibling rivalry. I see no reason to make their descendants nice people.
