Summary: Formerly titled 'From Wading to Redemption.'
Ron leaves. Ron returns. Ron saves me from Malfoy Manor. Ron and I descend together into the Chamber of Secrets. And, finally, Ron Weasley comes to understand S.P.E.W.
You've heard Harry's side of those stories -- but don't you want to hear my side?
Hermione's Point of View. Based on events in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
EDIT: This story, which was written almost a year ago, is undergoing a sort of Spring Cleaning. In other words, I am revising and resubmitting the chapters to take care of the things that now make me cringe. Rereads and new Reviews are welcome!
You write her VERY well. You also do a brilliant job of meshing the canon quotes with your own writing. I would never guess there were two authors working if those asterisks didn't show up and bother me all the time. Can't wait to read the next bit ...
Author's Response: Thank you! Glad you're enjoying it.
Mmm. I like how you're filling in here. This is what we miss by seeing the story only from Harry's POV.
Author's Response: Thanks. True that.
Now this ... was ... awesome. I always WANTED to see what happened here! I love little turns of phrase you use -- things like 'frenzied reptilian dentists' and such. They seem so very Hermione.
Author's Response: Hee hee, thanks. :D
Author's Response: :) Yes. Enough said here too.
Arthur Weasley has an obsession. He can’t keep it off his mind. It tinges every thought in his head and consumes his dreams. He can’t concentrate on anything else. His friends, the ones who haven’t given him up as a bad job, tell him he’s crazy and he knows they’re probably right. But that’s not even the worst part. Do you know what the worst part is?
She’s completely oblivious.
…And you thought it was Muggle Studies he was obsessed with.
Chapter 6: Quidditch and Kids is up!
I'm enjoying this story tremendously so far. I love the canon references and the character portrayals. The only thing I must complain about is that it's not finished. You should fix that. Immediately.
Author's Response: Haha, thanks. Glad you're liking it. I'll work on fixing the source of your complaint.
Summary: In her sixth year, Ginny had to deal with many things. The Carrows' brain washing, her parents' cautions, the fears of the students she led...
This is my poetic representation of her thoughts throughout the year.
Oooh, I like it. I like it a lot. I get a real sense of Ginny here -- her fire, her determination. Having read your Arthur/Molly stuff, I definitely see a similarity between her and her mother. The bit about her mother is a little jarring to me, though. The rest of the poem is definitely set in the moment, whereas the end shifts the focus, throwing me off a little. Just a thought.
Author's Response: Thanks! Yeah, the bit about Molly is different. *shrugs* This poem really isn't that good. It was my first Harry Potter poem, and probably the fifth of my life.
Summary: If you knew that the consequence of doing the right thing might be torture, or even death, would you still do it?
This story was inspired by something Neville said in passing. “…And then Michael Corner went and got caught releasing a first year they’d [the Carrows] chained up, and they tortured him pretty badly…”
This is the untold tale of an unsung hero: Michael Corner.
I think that is miserably sad. We never really got to know Michael Corner in the books, but you've built that one tiny reference into a piece that makes me want to cry.
I love the character development with Filch. It's always good to see a character we despise doing something good. It's good writing.
Author's Response: Thank you. Even if it was miserably sad and made you want to cry, I'm glad you thought it was good.
Summary: For and about all the Harry Potter characters who made choices, for good or ill, according to what they thought, rather than what was expected from them because of their house, blood status, etc.
Oh, poor lonely review box! I shall comfort you for a friend. Here goes:
Very interesting concept to base a poem on. I've always loved that theme in the HP books. The format isn't one I'm used to, and I'd have to analyze it for a LONG TIME to give any constructive criticism. Sorry, friend. I am too tired to analyze right now.
Author's Response: 'S okay. Analyzing isn't necessary in this crowd. Glad you liked it. :D
Summary: Coming home late from an Auror assignment, Ron faces a conversation he didn't expect... at least, not for a few more years.
Just a fun little one-shot, dedicated to Lori (WeasleyMom), the Queen of all things Romione.
I love this! I LOVE your take on Ron and Hermione. I dunno exactly why ... I just love it. You should write more. You should, you should.
Author's Response: Why, thank you. I just might. It is my second favorite ship, after all.
Summary: Alexander Jameson has spent his last two years at the Cairo Auror office riding a desk. When a case finally comes along that the Head feels he is suited for, he jumps at the chance to take it. Now he must solve a murder, figure out the significance of the murdered man’s missing ring, and keep the only witness to the death safe. But those things turn out to be much more difficult than he expected when they are combined with the added task of safe-guarding his heart.
This is hogwartsbookworm of Hufflepuff writing for the 2011 Mysterious May Challenge in the Great Hall, Prompt #2.
The title is a rewording of a quote from Shakespeare's Merchant of Vencie.
I love Dominique. She immediately gets my attention. I definitely see some of Fleur's attitude in her. And I am VERY, VERY curious to see what happens next. More, please?
Author's Response: Whenever I get my writing head on straight, this will be one of the first stories I update.
Summary: Over fifty people died the night of the Battle at Hogwarts. Fifties stories that came to The End. This is one End that was written.
When I started to read, I was expecting that it would be about a specific character. You know, the death scene of one of our faves. I am happily surprised to find no character specifics! There's an eerie quality to this piece that seems to suggest, 'this could be you'. Very nice.
Author's Response: Well... thank you. I'm not sure I like the idea of telling my readers it could be them, but apparently you liked it, so I guess I'm glad.
There's something Lily's been waiting to hear since Harry said his first word.
Written in anticipation for Deathly Hallows, part two.
Nominated for the 2011 Best Dark/Angsty QSQ. Thank you, Maple!
So ... I already tried to post this once. It didn't work, so I'm going to rewrite it. Hope it works this time.
I love this. I love how it's built around this minuscule moment in the canon book which takes on such enormous significance by the end of the story. I love your interpretation of the image in the mirror -- how Harry's parents are actually THERE, not just pictures. I also love the sense of wholeness we get about Lily's life. You reference friendships and histories that we don't have at our fingertips, and it makes the character so much more real.
Author's Response: Thank you! I love getting feedback, and I'm glad you enjoyed it.
