Hi, i'm an over 40 harry potter books lover. I also like to read other books. :) I just want to read the stories and review them. I'm not saying i'll never write potter fan fic, but so far my ideas aren't as great as some of the stories i've read over the years. So for now i'll be a reader.

Restless by Envy_I_May_Be
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 4]

Summary: In the days after Ron leaves them behind, Hermione reflects on the things that are, the things that were, the things that should be, and the things that never were. She thinks about her feelings, and what she should have done. She thinks about Harry, and she thinks about Ron, and all of the people she’s left behind on her journey to help Harry seek out and destroy the Horcruxes. But mostly, she waits. And while she waits, she is restless.

A little one-shot set during Deathly Hallows.

Very Well written! Believable. So Hermione.

Author's Response: Thank you! That is such a huge compliment. It means a lot that you think it was really believable. That's the goal for my writing; I want people to really feel the character. Thanks again; reviews are always appreciated :)


Diffraction by Equinox Chick
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 10]

Summary: Diffraction - the phenomenon where light encounters an obstacle.

It is September the first, and a sixth-year boy takes photographs of excited children on platform nine-and-three-quarters. Everyone looks happy, but Aaron Harper's heart is leaden. He can deal with the girl he fancies going out with the obnoxious Hugo Weasley, but coping at Hogwarts with no support from his father could be one obstacle too many.

This is Equinox Chick of Hufflepuff and this is my story for the Character Clinic OC challenge: Prompt 1.

Disclaimer: I'm not JKR: Hogwarts isn't mine, neither is Hugo Weasley, but Aaron Harper and Genister Avery are.

I'd love to read more about these guys! Great story!

Author's Response: Thank you. Well, Aaron appears in Swans when he's a few years older, and both of them are appearing in a follow up to my main Next Gen story called High (Genister is in High a little bit, Aaron is mentioned, too, but it's mainly a Scorpius/Lily story). Glad you liked the story. ~Carole~


Summary: In his first year at Hogwarts,Louis Weasley hadn't really expected to see Lord Voldemort appearing from a turban, and he never actually imagined that he'd discover the Chamber of Secrets, despite the attempts with his cousin. But he had expected something more from his school than a few mundane magical accidents.

Then, in his third year, he faced his Boggart and everything changed. For how can you defeat a fear that has no form?

Disclaimer: I am no JKR.

Thank you, Jess, for the original prompt and mah flist for encouraging me to write anyway, despite missing the deadline.

Really good characterization! I loved how Louis couldn't see his boggart - and what it turned out to be!

I like the idea that he could decide NOT to fight Finch but still think of himself as courageous. He didn't need to fight to prove anything- until he fought for Laura?? - i'm not sure if that is her name- when she was being teased. I also loved how he was able to figure a way to fight Finch without his wand and then to fight off the boggart.

Excellent story!

Author's Response: Thank you very much for the review. Yes, her name was Laura Ackerley, but Finch (Flinch) called her by her surname all the time. Glad you enjoyed the story ~Carole~
