Summary: What if Harry had a Godmother? And she was a Muggle? This story starts at the beginning of Order of the Phoenix and will be as canon-compliant as possible. This fan fiction will lead to a romance between Severus and the Godmother, an original character.
Once again an excellent chapter. I really liked how you painted Severus as a totally different man, he is more genuine. I loved how you took the play on his love for Lily and thought outside the box! I can't wait for the next two chapters!
Author's Response: Thank you for another complimentary review, dory2o2! :) I'm glad that you approve of my characterization of Snape; with so few canon references as to his personality, it is sometimes difficult to write his thoughts. I hope that you enjoy the last two chapters! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I felt like this was just a filler, it was a good and well written chapter, but there was barely any substance to it. Eagerly awaiting the next chapter!
Author's Response: I'm sorry that you didn't care for this chapter, dory2o2. I hope that you enjoy the epilogue, which will be the next and last chapter of this story. Thanks for letting me know your thoughts! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Excellent so far! I hope the next chapter(s) come out sooner rather than later!
Author's Response: Hello! Thank you so much for the sweet review! :) I'm so happy that you're enjoying the story! The next chapter should be approved by the moderators very soon. Hope to hear from you again! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Summary: James Potter is Head Boy and Gryffindor Quidditch captain in his seventh year at Hogwarts. He has three best friends and his life seems perfect--except that Lily Evans, the only girl he's ever loved, can't stand him.
Lily Evans is Head Girl and top of their class. She's always been disgusted by James' arrogance, yet she can't seem to stop blushing when he's around.
As their Head Boy and Girl duties bring them together, can James find a way to win Lily's love?
A Different Kind of Magic has been nominated for the 2011 Quicksilver Quills: Best Canon Romance. Thank you!
I've temporarily changed the rating to 3rd-5th years due to site glitches. I don't think there is anything graphic in the story thus far, but please read at your discretion anyway.
aww, this installment had me tearing up. Can't wait for the next installment!
Author's Response: Thank you for the review! :) I feel bad for making several people tear up with this chapter, though it is meant to be sad to accurately describe Mrs. Potter's condition and James' desperation. I'm working on Chapter 12 right now, but it'll have to be quite good to measure up to this one!
I really liked this chapter. My thought after reading this was "I wonder how James will take the news that Carl pushed Lily?"
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing!! James has a lot of other things on his mind to say the least, which you'll see from chapter 11, but there's no love lost between Carl and him as it is.
The locals in a sleepy corner of the Cheviot Hills are surprised to discover that they have new neighbours.
