Found this by accident & so happy I did. It is amazing & so in character of the Tom Riddle in the books.Interesting insight on Snape's mother, too.

Author's Response: Yay for happy accidents and thank you for your review! Incidentally, I'm currently working on an expanded version of this story (Much More Than A Game), which is more of a romance. :)

 

Snowflakes by The_Dream_Team
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 251]

Summary: And there he was. The one boy she could not stand. His messy, jet black hair was ruffled and untidy and his glasses were sitting crooked on his nose. James Potter was here. With Lily. And all her Muggle friends. At a Muggle ski resort. Could things possibly be worse? Oh yeah, Sirius Black is there, too.

I just reread the story from the beginning. The suspense keeps building. I'm looking forward to the next chapter.

I wondered how long it would take for the Ministry underage-magic committee to appear.

You are a wonderful writer.

Author's Response: Aw shucks, your making me blush :P And yes, the Ministry appearing for all that underage magic that they've been doing was delayed... but you will find out why in chapter 21! Thanks for reading (and rereading!) and reviewing, it means a lot!!

 

Summary: What if Harry befriended Draco? What if fear led Harry to follow the Sorting Hat's advice: "You could be great, you know, it's all here in your head, and Slytherin will help you on the way to greatness, no doubt about that..."

Very interesting. I just read Snowflakes & wanted to see what else you'd written. The gradual changes in Harry worked well.

Author's Response: Thank you! Most of the stuff that I've written (other than Snowflakes) is kind of old and a bit... meh, in my opinion. I've got a lot of future stories planned and they will hopefully be a bit better than this old one-shot :P Anyway, thanks for reading and reviewing :)

 

The Accidental Godmother by Ruby Emeralds
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 287]

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.

One of the main reasons I registered was to tell you how much I love this story. I eagerly await each update.

You are a wonderful writer, & while I don't usually care for AU stories, your incorporation of canon makes the whole story plausible. Thank you.

Author's Response: Your sweet review really made my day! :) Thank you for the fantastic compliments! I am thrilled to hear that you look forward to each chapter installment of the story and that you find the plot plausible, although the story is marked as an alternate universe tale. I hope that you continue to enjoy the upcoming chapters and thank you for letting me know how much you like the story! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds

Wonderful! Thank you for updating so quickly. I loved that Celie finally told the 2 men in her life what their actions were doing to her.I look forward to the next chapter & the sequels to see what's next for Celie & Snape.

Author's Response: Hello again, bearfoot! Thank you for sending me another sweet review! :) I'm so glad that you liked how Celie finally let Harry and Severus know that she's not going to choose between the two of them. I hope that you enjoy the upcoming epilogue and the first (of many) sequels! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds

 

The Accidental Tour Guide by Ruby Emeralds
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 75]

Summary: One year after the defeat of Voldemort, the international wizarding community decides to commemorate the occasion with a magical convention in the American city of Phoenix, Arizona; the city had been chosen to honor the bravery of the members of the Order of the Phoenix. When Harry, Ron, and Hermione are invited to attend the convention as special guest speakers, Harry asks his American Godmother to come with them, to act as a tour guide during their travels in the desert. In this first sequel to The Accidental Godmother, Celie, Snape (her ever reluctant husband), Harry, Ron, and Hermione embark on a memorable – and hilarious – journey through the American southwest.

Another great chapter. I love how you are developing the characters & their relationships with each other.

Poor Severus. The more the kids get used to being around him, the more unsure of himself he gets. And as to children, twins run in Celie's family, don't they?

What a great cliffhanger. I hope the next chapter comes as fast as this one did. Can hardly wait to see what happens next!

Author's Response: Thank you for another complimentary review! :) I am so happy to hear how you are enjoying the characters' interactions with each other - I take a lot of time trying to figure out how Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Snape would act toward one another. Your analysis of Snape is exactly right; he isn't at all comfortable with being seen as anyone other than the distant professor figure from the kids' past. And your comment about twins running in Celie's family is VERY perceptive, but you won't know for sure until we finish this story and the next sequel (which is very short). The next chapter should be posted shortly and I can't wait to hear your thoughts about it! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds

Well worth waiting for!!!!!

You have a fantastic imagination, and your words have a way of making the reader see what you are imagining.

The scenes in the cells, are a continuation of the way their interactions with each other keep changing.

I'm looking forward to the next chapters & any sequels you will write about the group.

Author's Response: I'm so glad to hear that you thought this chapter was worth the long wait! :) Thank you for all of your sweet compliments. I really appreciate you telling me how much you are enjoying the story. Also, you are the only one to comment on how Snape's relationships with Harry, Ron, and Hermione (and vice versa) are changing - how very observant of you! I am personally enjoying the repartee between the slowly relaxing professor and the kids, whose unfavorable opinion of Snape has been gradually altered after becoming enlightened as to his true motives and beliefs. I hope that you enjoy the next chapter and thanks again for being such a loyal reader and reviewer! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds

Wonderful. You packed so much into this chapter--humor, Snape's worry about being disrespected, Harry's discretion about his wand use on the snake, Celie's worries about Snape...

I eagerly await further adventures with this group.

Author's Response: Hello again! :) I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the chapter. When I was planning this story out, I didn't plan on writing such long chapters, but once I get started writing I find it hard to stop! Thank you for sending me another kind review and I hope that you enjoy the next chapter. :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds

Just wonderful. Looking forward to the sequel.

Author's Response: I'm so glad that you liked the story! :) I can't wait to hear what you have to say about the next sequel - it is already written and it is my favorite piece that I've written so far. Thank you for all of your support and enthusiasm! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds P.S. - Thanks for sending me my 50th review for this story! Errol (with the help of Hedwig) will be bringing you a box of Chocolate Frogs to show you my appreciation! :)

I just reread the story & noticed a timeline problem. Chapter 1 started in June, 1999, but you dated the Epilogue Sept. 1998.

Just thought you'd want to know.

Author's Response: THANK YOU so much for letting me know about my mistake! I promptly corrected it and I can't believe that I missed it when I proofread it. You have such sharp eyes! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds

 

The Missing Hands by Hotrav
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 10]

Summary:

Molly Weasley seems to have a heart big enough to accept anyone in need of love. It doesn't matter if the person is an abused little boy named Harry or her son's always present 'friend' Hermione, Molly will mother them.

Perhaps her need to reach out is caused by what should be present, but is not. The Missing Hands...

I just read your current story about Luna & Neville & enjoyed it. So I came to your site to see what else you had written.

I enjoyed reading this, too, & ended with tears in my eyes again. You have a wonderful way of writing & covering time periods, while keeping it interesting & flowing.

Nice job. You captured Ron perfectly--wanting to impress Hermione with 'suaveness', but at the same time, jealous of Krum. But it turned out well in the end.

Author's Response: Hehe, I'm so glad you think so, thanks :)

Well done. You've captured Neville. I don't usually read poetry, But I've read your recent poems on Snape & Dumbledore and they were excellent as well. Keep up the good work.

Author's Response: Thank you. I am very glad to hear you are enjoying my work :)

Back to the Burrow by Kiara Avalon
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 11]

Date: 09/04/11 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 37 - Back to the Burrow

This story is wonderful. You tied up so many loose ends---Kreacher, the Dursleys, Andromeda & Teddy. And your portrayal of George was so in character.

I think that if J.K. had tied DH up this nicely, there would be a lot less fan fiction. Because there would have been less left to the imagination.

Author's Response: Thanks for reading. I agree with you in the sense that Rowling gave fan-fiction writers plenty of opportunity to write about the series. It's one of the reasons why I find the Marauder era (the years of Lily and James Potter's lives) so intriguing. Thanks for your review :)

Told entirely from Snape’s uncensored point of view, he is initially disgusted with the presence of the Boy Who Lived’s young children in his house, but, like any good Slytherin, uses the opportunity to silently observe his wife’s peculiar behavior.

Definitely worth the wait.

Can we assume the babies are the twins that were foretold in Arizona?

If you keep writing, I will keep reading. I've been hooked since I first found 'The Accidental Godmother' in the queue.

Author's Response: I'm so glad that you thought this chapter was worth the long wait! :) Yes, these babies are the twins that were predicted by the Indian woman in Arizona. I will definitely keep writing and I thank you for your continued support and encouragement! I really hope that you enjoy the next sequel! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
