Summary: Draco Malfoy -avid Death Eater, proud and eager to be of use to the Dark Lord. Or desperate boy willing to do anything to save his family from dishonour and his father from death? Perhaps both.
What if there'd been another way? What if the road he's taking could diverge and lead him on a different journey? His path is set, he thinks... but then he collides with an insignificant girl and his world changes.
This story is for Julia (the opaleye) whose poetical skill with words leaves me breathless. It is also her 21st birthday. Apologies that I didn't use your fabulous alternate title 'An Act of Selecting or Making A Decision When Faced With Two or More Possibilities?'
Disclaimer: Much as I'd love to be JK Rowling, I'm not :(
Thank you Kara for beta'ing this and minna for mentioning the Robert Frost poem 'The Road Not Taken,' from which I've taken some lines.
** indicates lines taken from Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire.
Just finished another of your stories, and I can happily say I've liked every one I've read! I liked this couple, especially the way they were written, even though it wasn't going to work out in the end. Good work! :)
Author's Response: Thank you very much. I'm happy that you're happy. :) I'm rather fond of my version of Hannah in this and I'm thinking about writing a sequel with her and Neville. Thanks again ~Carole~
Summary: Viktor is thankful for uniforms; they make it difficult for him to identify individuals while flying at breakneck speed. But right now, he has to shake her hand. He dreads it, and hates himself for dreading it, so he doesn’t look into her eyes when their skin comes into contact, or when her fingers grip his a little more tightly than necessary.
This is hestiajones' seventh entry for the GH Cotillion Challenge. Thank you, Croll, for your support and ideas and jokes! I am not J.K. Rowling.
Can honestly say it's one of my favourite stories I've read, despite it's tragedy.
Author's Response: Lovely words. :) Thank you!
Summary: The story of Ron and Hermione through a series of missing moments. Who said love was simple?
Just finished it, I loved it!
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! I'm glad you enjoyed it :)
Summary: Have you ever been a part of something? I have - we were one, two, three together. Three pieces of a rather small jigsaw puzzle. But we were solid, strong and we felt untouchable.
Do you believe in 'forever?' I did. But then, I could be quite arrogant at times.
Found it a bit confusing, I'm not sure which one of the trio you're talking about, I think it's Harry :P But I really like the thoughtful style, generally a good piece, I think :)
Summary: As Sirius falls through the veil, four memories are forced to the forefront of Remus's mind.
A birthday present for the ever wonderful Soraya, whose praises I have sung so many times I have run out of words. Happy Birthday, Soraya - have a good cry. :P
Loved it! I've always found the end of book five very emotional, but the way you tied the events of Sirus's death into the story was excellent, it made it even more emotional and dramatic. :)
Summary: Victoire Weasley was his muse, his love, his everything, so when Teddy Lupin found himself alone with nothing but a goodbye and an insult of a Dear John letter, he was lost. Songs didn't sound like they used to, and nothing but getting that back mattered.
Would Teddy find his beat again, either in the strings of his guitar or inside himself?
This story has been nominated for a 2013 Quicksilver Quill Award: Best Next Generation Story.
I like it that he lives. It's sweet :)
Haha, I'm glad you enjoyed both the story and Teddy's lack of demise. Thanks for reading.
Summary: 31st October, 2001. Hermione, at the end of an average day at work, remembers a not-so-average day she had ten years ago that changed her life in every way. Trio friendship fic.
I loved it, really made me laugh and I think it portrays the trio's relationship perfectly :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words! I love the trio so it's great to hear that you think I did them justice :)
