Summary: The first war with Lord Voldemort is constantly getting worse; people are dying left and right, dementors are attacking people on the Death Eaters' orders, and nobody knows who is trustworthy anymore. Lily Evans, in her seventh year at Howarts, does not want to be a part of the war -- but some things are unavoidable.
I liked this chapter alot. Those attacks are going to annoy me until I know more! :) Personally, I like that Lily said no. It adds another twist and makes you think about their relationship. I hope the next chapter comes out soon, this story is really good :)
Author's Response: I finished the next chapter last night! I'm just doing some minor tweaking and it should be in the queue shortly. Thanks for your review!
Summary: My take on the first of those 'nineteen years' between the 36th chapter of DH and the epilogue.
Warnings: contains an unusually-shaped ring, a nosy neighbour, a rude shop assistant, shaving mishaps, thoughtful gestures, threatening goblins, and, unexplained appearances of Romantic!Ron and Romantic!Harry. You have been warned.
Rating is for *mild* innuendo and *mostly* innocent interactions but I wouldn't let my 9 year old read it.
:) Nice chapter! You've got a gift!
Author's Response: Thank you! I hope you enjoy the rest of the chapters as well. cj
Summary: Relishing a moment's peace at the end of the day, Andromeda Tonks sits and talks to her family. They may only be photographs, but still she chats and shares her life with them. But how can they help when Teddy runs home in an uncharacteristic rage after playing with Muggle friends in the park?
This is Equinox Chick of Hufflepuff writing for the Halloween Challenge, Halloween Explained prompt in the Great Hall Challenge.
Thank you to Emma (Amortentia x) for beta'ing this story.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling, but I doubt that surprises you.
Claimer: I am, like Ted Tonks, a fan of Tottenham Hotspur.
I saw the werewolf thing coming the moment Teddy said 'Halloween.' Awww :( my heart breaks for him. They story was really good, though. You're a great writer! And also, I was wondering, how old is Teddy when this takes place? I was just a little confused about that.
Author's Response: I didn't specify an age, but it's pre-Hogwarts. I think I imagined somewhere around the 9/10 year old mark because he's a boy getting annoyed with the younger children. Thank you very much for the review. ~Carole~
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.
You really are an inspiration to me. I really like your style of writing. Poor Serverus. :(
Poor Celie. :(
Author's Response: I'm so relieved to hear back from you again! :) You are very sweet to compliment my writing so much. Thank you for the review! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Author's Response: Yeah! :) Hope you enjoy the next chapter! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
(Sorry it's not very original)
Author's Response: I'm glad to hear that you're still liking the story! :) Happy Reading! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Oh God! I always knew that Serverus would die, but this… Although… well I guess I'll just have to read the next chapter.
Author's Response: You will definitely need to read the next chapter - I really ended this one with a cliffhanger! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Yay!! The number one death that I regreted (or sobbed shamelessly about) was Snape's. I cannot thank you enough for saving him.
Author's Response: There is no way that I would have killed Snape off in my story. I, too, was terribly upset when I read Deathly Hallows and found out that J.K. killed him off. I love happy endings and, in my opinion, Snape is the one character who really needs one! :) Thanks for taking the time to send me your thoughts! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I am fairly new to this website and this is one of the first fan fics I have read. I cannot tell you how sad I was as I closed the final Harry Potter book or how many tears were shed as I realized the series was over. To read this was like a breath of fresh air. I thoroughly enjoy it and for that, I must thank you.
Author's Response: Hello! I'm glad that you recently found the story and are liking it so far. Thank you for being so kind as to describe my story as a "breath of fresh air." :) Thanks for sending me your thoughts and I hope that you continue to enjoy the story! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
I love this story! I really hope Snape and Celie fall in love! I felt so bad for Snape when I found out about how he loved Lilly in the seventh book. It's strange how such a hated character (in Harry's mind) can become so lovable! :)
Author's Response: Hello again! :) You will have to keep reading to see how Celie and Severus's relationship progresses. Thanks for sending me a review and I hope that you enjoy the upcoming chapters! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Just fall in love already! lol The suspence is killing me! The sign of a great story!
Author's Response: Don't let the suspense kill you, Prongs_Luver! I would like to hear back from you again! :) Celie and Severus will have some alone time in future chapters...stay tuned! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds P.S. - Thanks for the compliment about it being a "great story!" :)
OMG!! I still find that romantic even if it was just to proove a point… Now if they can just kiss for real…
Author's Response: I guarantee that more kissing will appear in future chapters. Thank you for sending a review! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Go Celie!! I truly love this story. My mom keeps telling me to get off the computer but I am glued to the screen. I just can't stop reading!!
Author's Response: I'm happy to hear that you are "glued to the screen," but I hope that you don't get into trouble! :) Thanks for letting me know how much you are liking the story! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Finally!!! Finally!! YES!! I don't know what else to say…
Author's Response: I'm super glad to hear that you approve of the direction that the story is taking. Can't wait to hear from you again! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
You should be a real author!!! You are amazing!! Now all you have to do is think of a nickname for them. Hmmm… Snelie? LOL!
Author's Response: Thank you for the fantastic compliment! :) I really appreciate your sweet reviews. Snelie is actually a very good nickname for Snape and Celie. I hope that you enjoy the rest of the story! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Thanks for writing this story :389;
Author's Response: You are very welcome. I hope that you enjoy the remaining chapters! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Omg!! I'm so happy!! In any other story I would have said that the proposal came too soon but it was just right for this story!!
Author's Response: I'm thrilled to hear that you thought that the content in this chapter was "just right." :) Thanks for continuing to read and review the story! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Love :) I was waiting for when he was gonna tell her about Lilly.
Author's Response: The "Lily" conversation was an important one and I enjoyed writing it very much. I'm glad to hear that this chapter lived up to your expectations. Thanks for the review! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Well, I have to say, I was kinda dissapointed. The battle was a little anti-climatic, if you know what I mean. It was just so unimportant. I wish it could have been a bigger part. :(
Author's Response: I'm sorry that you didn't care for this chapter. When I was writing it, I figured that since J.K. already described the battle for us, that it would be more interesting for my story to only focus on Celie's perspective throughout the ordeal inside the Ministry of Magic. I hope that, if you continue to read the story, you enjoy the next chapter more than you did this one. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
