Summary: PRE-HBP!!! Harry starts out his sixth year in sorrow at the loss of Sirius. Ginny helps him to overcome it, and our heroes learn a lot about life and love. This story has been completed! Special thanks to my mod, Danielle and to my fantastic readers!
I really liked this chappie. A 10 from me; it was excellent. Nice work. Keep 'em rollin'. And no cliffhanger? -gasp-
Author's Response: I know! *feels forehead* Nope, I'm not sick. How could I have possibly left no cliffhanger? Would you like me to go back and put one on? Haha, just kidding. Thanks for the review!
Summary: Someone watches Harry and his friends. Short, one part POV
This is great stuff.
Summary: Kinda fluffy, but hey, I wrote it on Christmas. I don't wanna give too much away, but its a flashback to how our two favorite couples got started. (Mostly a H/G, but has R/H too.) Its my first, so please R&R, but be gentle!!
Haha, fluff. I'm a sucker for fluff. :)
Summary: "What can I say?" James shrugged his shoulders. "We are just obviously,"
James laughed, "Meant to be."
Lily Evans and James Potter share absolutely nothing in common, not even their feelings for each other. Lily, perceived as a ‘model student,’ detests the handsome, popular, Quidditch star James, who she thinks to be something of a git. James, on the contrary, has been infatuated with Lily for years, and has let her and the whole school know it.
As time progresses into Voldemort’s ‘reign of terror,’ the two have to learn to trust, tolerate, and love each other.
Please note, this story is incomplete, and will likely remain so for a long time. I apologize!
I've just been reading this over the last couple of days and thought it was about time I reviewed. Aw, Jamesie is so cute. What a speech maker. Lol. Anyway, I don't know about anyone else, but I liked this chapter best so far. It really flowed. So thank you very much for an awesome chappie.
Aaaargh! I loved that. Beautiful dialogue between Mr. Potter and Miss Evans. Very nice indeed. However, I am getting rather tired of these cliff hangers. Lol. You can just HEAR my scream of utter frustation.. Adored that chappie, James and Lily... You are a fantastic writer; they're just the way I always imagined. You have their characters perfect. Thanks for the excellent read.
Being patient is very hard. You're killing us here. I promise I will give you the HUGEST review when the next chappie is up. I'm just going to pull up a chair, grab some popcorn and wait.

Cannot wait for the next chapter. I've been following this story for a couple of months now, and you continue to impress me. Chapter 16 wasn't my favourite. I found it a tad messy but you tidied it up here! Poor Ginny. You've gotta feel for the girl. Should be interesting to see how this turns out...
This is getting interesting! I'm so glad that we're getting regular updates again - you go, girl!
Um, need I say more?
Summary: Harry, Ron, Hermione, and Ginny invent a new name for Lord Voldemort. He doesn't care for it, though, so he comes up with a new identity of his own. (One-shot)
Remind me never again to say the words 'Immortal Love Rodd' as I will burst into uncontrollable laughter and be a victim of hilarity for twenty minutes.
Summary: James Potter is an obnoxious, arrogant prat. Lily Evans is stubborn and a bit arrogant herself. James loves Lily. Lily hates James. Will James ever conquer the love of his life when his each and every attempt always fails spectacularly? Humor is guaranteed thanks to the one and only, Sirius Black!
Just spent twenty minutes reading this. Omigosh I love Sirius. He's hilarious. Just had to say that. I think you've got Mr. Black spot on and have portrayed him better in 'First' than in any other fanfic I've read. Nice ending, very clever. But we all know what happens next. :(
Anyway, awesome story. I think the romance between James and Lily was a bit fast, but that's all I have to say that is vaguely-negative. I really enjoyed the whole thing - you're a great writer. Do anything other than fanfic?
Author's Response: Wow thanks!! I'm really glad you liked it so much!! *does victory dance* THANKS!
Summary: Harry Potter's sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry ended in a tragic event. A headmaster and well-respected wizard was killed by the very man in whom he had placed his trust. This story begins during the latter part of the Boy Who Lived's sixth year, and it will follow Harry, as well as the entire Wizarding World, through Harry's seventh year and the Second War. The Order of the Phoenix struggles to overcome the loss of their leader and the harsh sting of betrayal, while Lord Voldemort has continued to grow in power and strength, and Wizarding Britain is on the brink of collapsing into darkness.
Harry sets out on the path he chose, seeking the four Horcruxes that still remain in the world, and the story will culminate in the final and climactic battle between the forces of good and evil, where death, loss, betrayal, and the overwhelming strength of love and friendship abound. After so many years of terror and war, who will be victorious in the end -- Harry Potter ... or Lord Voldemort?
As of 25 July 2007, this story will NOT be compliant with canon in Book 7: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I will be sticking to my own plot line, and it will only connect with DH if the two happen to overlap.
Wow, this is fantastic. I thought this'd be another of those Harry Potter and the blah blah fics but it's something more than the trio running off to find Horcruxes. I love this... going to read the rest before lunch.
Author's Response: Thanks. I\'m glad you like the story thus far, and thank you for taking the time to review.
It's taken me an hour to read your fic, but I've done it! Anyway, this is shaping up to be one of my favourite fics, so thank you very much - I had a lot of fun reading this. Harry and Ginny are so cute! Stupid Malfoy. But Scrimgeour! Whoa, I didn't see that coming. I've never liked the guy anyway. xD I'll keep readin' as long as you keep writin'.
Summary: In the summer after HBP, Ginny tries to find a way to deal with her separation from Harry. Contains spoilers.
Ack, if this was fluff than I'm a monkey. I really enjoyed this - as always, beautiful writing.
Summary: Arthur has come to Privet Drive to take Harry to the Burrow for Bill and Fleur's wedding, but first he want to have a little talk with Harry.
5000 reads for this little two-chapter story of mine! Merci! Danke! Thanks!
Okay, this is a longer review, so bear with me. Firstly, the theme going on with the chapter titles and story title is very orginal. Great idea.
I love the whole idea of the story, the man-to-man talk between Arthur and Harry and how the Weasleys are all telling Harry off and giving him advice. That was cute. A few characters were a tad OOC, namely Ron and occasionally Fred and George. I think you could have developed Ginny and Harry a bit more, too.
But I thought Hermione was wonderfuly in character, and this line was very funny:
"“It's a love potion. It smells different to each of us, based on what attracts us,” Hermione interjected. Harry looked at her. She slouched down in her chair, trying to make herself very small, and muttered, “Sorry. Reflexes.”"
How very Hermione. You captured her brilliantly. Humour JKR style, I thought.
And speaking of humour, this line was very funny, but not out of place in a romance fic:
" We just talked Harry into taking our only daughter, our fifteen-year-old daughter at that, with him to help to destroy Voldemort."
One more quote for you, don't worry, it's not painful: "Only Fleur and Bill really seemed happy to see him, as she seemed to float out of her chair to kiss him on both cheeks."
Bill and Fleur are made out as one (female) person. Just thought you might want to know.
Anyway, hope I haven't rambled on to much. Great fic, a 10 from me.
Author's Response: Nah, you didn't ramble. I like getting specifics on what people like and don't like about my work. I admit the characters were a wee bit OOC, but I felt it was better to do that than drag this out over several more chapters. I'm a fan of the "be brief and be gone" school. Interestingly, this is a revised version of what I originally posted. Originally, Harry defined the love potion, but after working with a beta from another site, I realized it was very OOC and rather didactic. I remembered Steve Kloves saying that Dumbledore and Hermione were great characters for a screenwriter since they were ready made for exposition. I realized it was a great way to handle this and inject a little humor in the drama.
Summary: Harry wrestles with his feelings for Ginny at Bill and Fleur's wedding. Contains HBP spoilers.
I love this. Everything is so right and just how I'd like book 7 to be.
Summary: After Harry's retirement party, he and Ginny remember their long and happy life together, including Bill and Fleur's wedding, Harry and Ginny's first kiss, and a lot of other firsts, too!
(Rated cautiously for adult themes and mild language in later chapters.)
"“So you broke off with her to protect her?” Lupin queried.
“That is the dumbest thing I have ever heard.”
“She said it was noble!”
Lupin frowned at him in disbelief.
“Ok, she said it was a stupid noble reason,” he mumbled."
That made me laugh for five minutes straight. And the brothers scene? Hilarious. Everything just seemed so funny after that part that I didn't process the rest. Lol, I'm going to go re-read.
Author's Response: The Stubby Boardman? Quotes - yay, I Iove quotes! Thanks for chiming in!
Rated: [Reviews - ]
Wow. This is so well written, especially in the first few paragraphs, that it's almost poetic. I especially like your view of Remus and Tonks because that is exactly how I imagine their future together. Unless - heaven forbid - JKR kills both Remus & Wormtail off in the next book, thus eliminating the Marauders and giving me a murder motive. Anyway, I loved this.
Author's Response: Why thank you very much, Stubby Boardman. Unfortunately, I will no longer be updating at MNFF because of a small dispute with a moderator. However, I do currently have five chapter written and posted on my LJ, which you can find through the link in my profile.
Summary: James finally asks Lily out. The problem is, he chose a roundabout way of getting to her. Plus, he stands a high risk of breaking his neck in the process. Told from Remus Lupin's POV. Rated 3rd-5th years for slight language and mild innuendo on James's part. One-shot.
A/N: Quick note to all: I am sorry, but there are no plans for a sequel for PC. I hate to disappoint you all, but I feel that the story is better standing alone, leaving the rest to your imaginations.
Oh my gherkin! This is awesome. I love the ending, that was just the icing on the cake. I was laughing so hard I fell of my chair. Thanks a bunch, I'm gonna have a massive bruise now. Lol.
Author's Response: Sorry. Bruises on your rear end hurt. (Been there, done that.)
Summary: Sitting in his dark cell in Azkaban, Sirius can’t help thinking about that day… The day James and Lily were killed.
I can't believe this has no reviews. Weird. Anyway, I loved it. You've really captured Sirius and his feelings as he sits in a lonely Azkaban cell. You ended it nicely, too. Thanks for the great read!
Author's Response: Thanks! See, I'm very attached to this story, so I'm really really glad you liked it!
