Summary: Seven months after leaving Hogwarts, James Potter is fighting for the Order of the Phoenix. When Lily Evans joins the resistance, his life is turned upside down. He'd proposed, after all, and she had said no. How could they work together now, after so much history together? Or could they find another chance amidst the war?
It's beautiful. Those poor muggles at the park, though...
Exciting, very exciting, and I like your little touches- James' dad being called Harrington, Lily's half-formed patronus...on small thing- may be others have alreadyu pointed this out- in chapter 1 ""Worry about your personal problems letter, Potter"- that will be 'later', I think.
Author's Response: Yes, that would be later, lol. Thanks for pointing out the typo, I will nip in and fix it soon. I appreciate the review! I'm glad you enjoyed the details. Thanks so much for reading and leaving a note! I hope you enjoy the rest. ~Gina :)
Hey you can't stop here, please update.
Author's Response: Haha no I won't :). I'll try to update this week!
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 :).
You continue to keep the suspense. Very taut. Keep up the good writing.
Author's Response: Thank you! I"m glad you're enjoying. :)
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.
Author's Response: Thank you! I've just arrived home a while back. Give me a day or two to sort out my stuff and then I'll be back with more chapters :D Thanks for the review and for the good wishes! --Nadia
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
Oh My God. Have we met the murderer yet?
Author's Response: Haha no, not yet :) I'm sorry for the late updates -- University is not as easy as I expected it to be :/
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 :)
