Summary: It has been nineteen days since the war ended. For everyone involved, it's time to move on and rebuild but can they after everything that has happened?
You do Draco's character quite well, the conflicted opinions, the desire to get a rise out of Ron...
Author's Response: Thank you for reading and reviewing! Draco was a lot of fun to write actually, even with all of his issues so thanks :)
Is this going to be updated? Great story.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading! Don't panic - I've already submitted the next chapter :)
I couldn't breathe through this chapter. But I think Hermione should open up to her dad, hard as it must be.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing again :) I've not long started writing a chaptered fic about Hermione's relationship with her parents and Ron after the war. It's going to be months before it's ready to be seen, but it will happen eventually. Glad you liked this chapter!
Summary: As the Summer Holidays approach, it is time for Sports Day at James Potter's school.
Bloody Dursleys! We hates them.
But what did happen to James' letter?
Yes we do.Good question, all will be revealed.
Summary: All these years, Hermione has been waiting for this and there is only one person who really understands why.
This is so lovely. Hermione's nervousness is bang on, Harry is great. And that "she makes more of an effort"- that was a nice touch. I loved the way Harry tried to umm, stand up for the injured cushion and agreed to the logicalness of Hermione's illogical ramblings.
Btw, JKR fangirling over Drarry fanart??? You realize you could be charged with my murder?
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing :) Harry is advocate of fairness to all things both living and cushion and nobody rambles like Hermione. Haha, I'm saying it's a possibility. Maybe she just appreciates the cross-hatching?
Summary: 'Sometimes I catch a glimpse of myself in a mirror or a window, and I do not recognise the face staring back. Even the eyes, which never truly change, seem dulled in comparison to what they once were.
It is not age that dulled them but you, and him, and her, and the myriad of dreams that came to nothing.'
Albus Dumbledore dwells on his life, and love, and the Hogwarts' students he shaped.
This story is for Natalie (hestiajones) because it is her birthday and she is a fantastic friend. Have a good one, my love.
Disclaimer: I'm not JK Rowling. I think that's obvious.
Thank you very much, Kara (Karaley Dargen) for beta'ing this story and helping me rethink bits. :)
It's eerie how Albus uses Gellert's line on Snape. What a master of manipulations.
Young Minerva is adorable and whole piece is amazing.
I was just expecting a little more of Sirius, especially after MM said he would let them down again. I would like to read a fiction depicting the meeting between Sirius and Albus in Flitwick's office, where Albus learns he's been wrong again. Do you know any oneshot like that?
Author's Response: Thank you very much. Hmm, I didn't really want to include anymore of Sirius because this was more of a story about Albus and him watching over all the students. I haven't read any stories like that, but not a bad idea ...
Thanks again ~Carole~
Summary: Tiresias Trelawney makes his living conning Muggles into believing he can commune with the dead. With his side-kick, Mundungus Fletcher, they fleece the gullible with magic tricks and a few sad laments.
But one stormy Halloween night, everything changes.
A spooky Halloween story for all the lovely readers on MNFF.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling. Boy, did she know how to weave a spooky tale!
Tiresias? He could pretend to be blind, you know, for effects. Surprise ending.
Author's Response: Tarnation! I missed a trick. Perhaps he'll go blind now after getting his first ever real vision. Thanks for the review/ ~Carole~
Summary: When impulsive new Auror Alice Hamilton is partnered with the more serious and experienced Frank Longbottom, neither is quite sure what to expect. They have a history, after all, and a different way of approaching the job. Yet in a world where dark forces continue to threaten the safety and security of the magical community, they must work together in spite of their feelings--especially when it becomes clear that You-Know-Who is planning a major offensive that will threaten both their relationship and their lives.
Ah, sweet ending.
Thanks for this chapter, the old Order building up looked so natural...everyone was in-character in so short-space. Of course Sirius won't want to sit quietly if there's a fight going on...
"Not the Gryffindor Common Room" rofl
Author's Response: Oh, I'm glad you liked the end, I really enjoyed that line. Actually, I enjoyed writing the entire chapter because it was so great when the Marauders all showed up. Thanks so much for following this story, I really appreciate the reviews! ~Gina :)
Just like that? No recruitment form or anything? :P A little short, but nice. I like Moody.:)
Author's Response: I seriously doubt there is a form to sign, lol. Glad you liked Moody - thanks for still reading! The next chapter is quite a bit longer so I hope you enjoy the rest! ~Gina :)
Thanks for updating. I felt it was a little shorter but that could just be me being greedy.
Author's Response: You're welcome! Yes, it's about 1K shorter than the last two chapters but it was a good stopping point so that's how I break things up. I'm usually pretty consistent on word counts but the next chapter is shorter and then ten is twice as long, go figure! I hope you enjoyed it - thank you for the review! ~Gina :)
Another great chapter. Liked what Gideon said about Molly and her kids being worse than war. Angry, snappy Moody is brilliantly done.
Author's Response: Thank you so much (however late!) I really like writing Moody, although I do find him tricky at times. But my lovely beta helps me out with him. Thank you so much for reading this story, I really appreciate all the reviews! ~Gina :)
Oh Merlin I think this is my favourite of your stories. I've never come across a Frank-Alice fiction this good, in fact they usually turn up in James-Lily stories as the also ran couple or they get unidimensional sweet oneshots of their own but to actually give them a series with so much of tension and awkwardness...really really good. All you guys (You, Caroline) take ages to update, update this one soon, please?
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review and the compliment! I don't think I've seen many Frank/Alice stories out there either. Most tend to be after they were attacked, and those are all sad. I've just updated and apologize but the holidays did interrupt things a bit. But it won't be months, no worries. I like to work ahead and keep things going. I hope you enjoy the rest, thanks again! ~Gina :)
Summary: As he enters a new chapter of his life, Ron ponders what exactly he has got himself into.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing :)
Summary: Christmas is coming and there is a lot to be done. When the Potters offer to look after the Charlton kids, Annie and her mum meet Harry’s biggest friend.
Cute. Very aww-moment there.
Author's Response: Thank you. -N-
Summary: Ron leaves Harry and Hermione alone to decorate a Christmas tree. What could possibly go wrong?
"So," he began awkwardly, "what do we do now?
Er...call for Kreacher? Which is what Harry should have done the first time, but then we won't have the story right?
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! That... that is a very good point. Haha, I feel a little rewrite is on the cards. Thank you for pointing that out :)
Summary: For years, Remus Lupin found comfort in the arms of Rosmerta Richardson...until the day he no longer needed her consolation.

Author's Response: Thank you, I'm so glad! I appreciate the review! ~Gina :)
Summary: Beautiful and headstrong, with Veela blood running through her veins, Fleur Delacour understands the importance of looks, but as she seeks to ensnare the intriguing young Auror standing guard at Hogwarts, she forgets the most important truth of all: appearances are often deceptive.
This is Equinox Chick and this is my first entry into the Great Hall 2013 Cotillion (yes, I did say first!)
Disclaimer; I am not JK Rowling. I'm also not very good at French.
Thank you Sophie (the owl) for fabulous beta job, and Natalie (hestiajones) for giving me some pointers.
This was cute and fun.
Author's Response: Hahahhah - yes, I was trying to think how someone angry and hearing that strange name for the first time would say it, and Nympa Tongs was the result! Thanks for the review. ~Carole~
A good restaurant, a fine meal and an excellent wine, all in the company of friends, what could possibly go wrong? Harry, Ginny, Ron and Hermione are about to find out.
This is Northumbrian of Ravenclaw writing for the 2013 Great Hall Valentine's Day Cotillion.
Someone slap that waiter for me.
Ginny is evil, isn't she? Too bad I was rooting for Harry.
Author's Response: He crtainly desrved a slap.
Evil? Cunning and mischievous, certainly, wicked, probably. :-D-N-

Sweet. Ron's shift of moods is really well done.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you approve of Ron's moods. :)
Summary: When Charity Burbage became the Muggle Studies professor, she was looking for a new life, safe in the enclave of Hogwarts.
She certainly wasn't looking for love.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling.
