WHAT DID DUDLEY JUST TELL HER? And if he still wants to go to dinner with Parvati why is he pretending he can't remember? NO, WAIT- WHAT DID HE TELL RITA? IS HE COMPLETELY STUPID?
And I didn't get updates for your story again. Why why why? It was just lucky I noticed it on the recent list. :(

This...this is no place to live us hanging off. And I don't even know if I;'ll get an alert!!!

Author's Response: Haha I'm sorry about the cliffie! And about you not getting update alerts. I don't know what that's about... As for Dudley's interview with Rita, well, I thought it would be funny to show how far awry good intentions can go if you're that misinformed. Dudley may have changed but he'll never exactly be the brightest bulb, and that's sort of what's fun about him, he's so flawed. Anyway, I really enjoyed your outraged reactions (I know I'm evil) so thanks for that, and thanks for reviewing. Cheers!

Hmm, looking back, asking if Dudley was completely stupid was rather rhetorical, no? And I didn't get an alert for your response to my review. I don't know what;'s wrong, this happens with no other story.

Author's Response: Would you like me to PM you when I update just in case? I can't guarantee I'll remember but there are only two chapters left, I should be able to do that...

Cheers, Dudley. Way to show it too ruddy Vernon and Petunia.
By thew way, I think I've reviewed your story before, but I didn't get an update alert.:(

Author's Response: Sorry to hear that, there may have been a glitch with the update alerts... I do have this story posted up at as well if you wanted to check it out there, and I believe they do update alerts too. Thank you for reviewing though, it's always great to hear encouraging feedback! Cheers :)

M.I.T.: Haunted House: Dead by Northumbrian
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 22]

A haunted house that isn’t haunted, a Muggle fortune teller who can’t actually tell fortunes and the legend of the Cursed Green Pearl! What happens when “the nation’s favourite television ghost-hunters” stumble onto something really magical? What (apart from a mysterious chest, a broken red stiletto and a corpse) lies within the topmost room of the Haunted Tower?

It’s time for the Auror Office’s Muggle Interface Team - Brown, Bones and Beadle - to investigate.

This is Northumbrian of Ravenclaw house writing for the 2011 Mysterious May Challenge in the Great Hall - Extra Credit Prompt

This is one of four mystery stories I wrote for the Challenge. Until now I’ve resisted editing this story as to do so will (I believe) mean that it can’t be judged as part of the challenge (editing after the closing date is cheating). I can’t wait any longer.

Author's Response: You're right, thanks for the catch! I changed the wording a bit to make it more clear.

You siad it was traditional for fifth years to be writing it, so why would Regulus write it in 2nd year?
Sorry to be pointing this out, again. Update soon.

Author's Response: You're right- I didn't really think this out. It was more of a character exercise I guess. There's one more chapter and then I'm adding a short story from this world!

James's letter was really good.
And Stubby's lyrics were brilliantly bad.

Date: 10/15/13 Title: Chapter 1: One Hundred and Eleven Days: Plan, What Plan?

Delightful, and I love your attention to details. Like the dressing gown wasn't just there, it was not supposed to be there yet Ron has an automatic expectation of it being there, they don't just share cake but they have a rule about the cutting and sharing, and there is cake all over her face...the call back to childhood was cute, the conversation amazing, and the ending as usual the best possible way to end.
I love your writing. Do keep updating.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
I've been toying with the idea of writing a Ron/Ginny one-shot set at the time the twins go off to Hogwarts for the first time, instead I did a sort-of flashback in this chapter. Hopefully, now that real life seems to be finally returning to normal, I'll be able to get back to my writing.

Wow, wow and wow! Please update. And wait, what happened to updating your other story?

Author's Response: Thanks.
Not sure when you'll see the next chapter of this. Brown was completed and approved a few days ago. The next chapter of Strangers at Drakeshaugh is imminent and the next chapter of Hunters and Prey is with one of its betas.

Fine. I hereby declare you my official post-Rowling canon source. Whatever you say happened in the post-war Potterverse happened. As far as I am concerned. Hunters, Strangers, Aurors & SchoolGirl & the countdown to wedding story with the Spenserian title- please update them. At least one of them. It's my birthday next week, pretty please?

Author's Response: Thank you.
This story actually happens before and During DH. :-D The title may be Spenserian, but I was led to it via Dorothy L Sayers. It's possible that I'll have the next chapter of H&P ready for next week. I'll see what I can do.

Piers Parkinson? What happened to him, eventually? Moldyshorts takes over soon so... Brilliant writing by the way. If this story has a follow-up please let me know.

Author's Response: You'll eventually fond out what happens to Pansy's Dad, but not for a while. There is no follow up, not yet. -N-

The Stag and the Doe by grangergirl35
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 17]

Summary: Lying to myself, lying to my friends, lying to Remus, to Sev . . . to James. I couldn't do it anymore. I had to suck it up . . . and fall in love.

In the midst of a war, Lily Evans, consumed by fear for her small family and her own identity as "Muggleborn", finds herself turning to the least likely person for protection and companionship - James Potter. This is yet another story of that fateful seventh year, when two people came together, and gave birth to a saga.

Thrilling, but I would like to see Lily less as a damsel in distress and more of an action heroine. Please do update. I like your writing.

Author's Response: I feel like she has to experience the damsel in distress part first - then later the heroine stuff comes in.
