Never Let Go by majestic_ginny
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 34]



Lucy Weasley, eldest daughter of Minister for Magic Percy Weasley, was found dead in her room early yesterday morning. Forensics has revealed that the death occurred due to poisoning, though the nature of the poison is yet to be confirmed.

Harry Potter has a difficult job at hand. Well, being an Auror has never been simple, but when the victim is a part of the family, things are bound to become far worse. Relations are put to the test, and old secrets resurface. And sometimes, it may just get too personal…

This is majestic_ginny of Hufflepuff writing for the Great Hall Chaptered Challenge of 2012.

I have a bad feeling about Audrey not being here.

Author's Response: Aww, crap, I forgot to mention her X(. She's still in a bit of shock, and she was sitting with Molly in the living room. She doesn't talk at all, though. I'm having her snap out of the shock next chapter :).

I have a bad feeling about this Clara character. But then, you have proved my hunches wrong before.

Author's Response: I just have one word: *wink.* ;)

Good chapter. Have a nice trip and update when you return.

What? You come back after ages and ages and end like this? *fuming* (good chapter though)

Author's Response: Hahaha lol =P. I'm sorry! I'll update by next Friday, hopefully. The latest chapter is half written -- I wasn't exactly expecting this chapter to be accepted so quickly, heh. Thanks for the review! <3

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 :)

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!

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?


To Dwell On Dreams by Equinox Chick
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 8]

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~

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~

They have a history, after all, and a different way of approaching the job.

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 :)

Reviewer: Ruchira_M Signed

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 :)
