Wonderful storyline, bringing Harry and Ginny to Gringott's. I had never considered the restoration of magical portraits before, nor the possibility of Harry owning one of his grandparents. You have once again crafted a fun, thoughtful, and imaginative narrative that honors the Potter legacy while intertwining whimsy and sentimenality.
Great job!

Author's Response:
Thanks for the review.

The portrait made its first appearance in “The Badly Fitting Coat” and Harry’s grandparents will reappear occasionally. This is one of the fluffiest things I’ve written, I think.



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

Summary: Fifteen years after the Battle, Ron and Hermione reminisce.

Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling, but I hope she'd like this.

This story was inspired by a reminder from halfaslug on tumblr - thank you. I dedicate this to her, and Lori (Weasley Mom) because they love Romione so much. (Well, what's not to love?)

Very well crafted. I appreciate the balance of nostalgia, sadness, positivity, and celebration.
You have a gift for insightful dialogue that doesn't bog down in text: conversations flow quickly and reveal the characters' tone nicely.
Well done.

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I';m glad you appreciate this little snapshot of their lives :D ~ Carole~

I enjoyed the convoluted storyline...working back to the beginning. Perhaps you might consider another A/S installment highlighting the events surrounding Al's magical revelation and Sophia's interactions with the Potters?
Nicely done

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! I'm not sure I'll write more of Al/Sophia's story - the main gist of their revelation is that when they both wake up one morning, Al realizes he loves her and decides to tell her. Sophia responds with "okay, cool, you're a wizard. What do you want for breakfast?" And then Al proposes he's so happy. I'm glad you liked it. :)

The story was well-plotted and nicely written. I appreciate the short, succinct paragraphs, informative dialogue, and progressive action.
I look forward to more of your work.

Author's Response: Thanks, now that I’ve written both a Bobbie-centred and a Lavender-centred M.I.T. story I really must write a Susan-centred one. However, next will be Strangers. -N-


After The Adventure by TheObdurateVoid
Rated: Professors [Reviews - 3]

Summary: The adventure is over but life is beginning. Struggle and triumph, joy and sorrow. After the Adventure picks up as Harry's talk with Dumbledore's portrait ends shows his life start to unfold, a life without Voldemort. It's not going to be easy, but it is his. (Rated M for violence, adult themes, complex ideas of morality especially in the weeks after the war.)

The Alliance of Adversaries by Ruby Emeralds
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 16]

Summary: Fresh after the defeat of Voldemort, the wizarding world is in a near state of panic when an elusive band of wizards are targeting and assassinating accused Death Eaters before their high-profile trials. The Wizengamot is upset that justice is being obstructed; the Ministry of Magic is concerned that they appear weak in the eyes of its citizens; the overworked Aurors are fending off accusations of incompetence, since they cannot catch the mysterious perpetrators. Kingsley Shacklebolt, the newly elected Minister of Magic, comes to Azkaban to convince cellmates Severus Snape and Lucius Malfoy to assist a team of Aurors with their unproductive investigation, in exchange for a temporary release from prison.

The story set-up is good; quite satisfying, actually. Thank you for using the crisp dialogue and concise adjectives to keep the action moving. I don't know how many chapters you're planning to write, but I hope they are similarly filled with information and description.
Nice job!

Author's Response: Thank you for your many sweet compliments! :) I am thrilled to hear that you are enjoying the story so far. As of today, I am planning on having about seven long chapters for this story, but the final count just might end up being more than that estimate because I tend to be wordy! As I write and edit the upcoming chapters, I will definitely keep your suggestion - having lots of descriptions - in mind. Thanks for giving my story a try! :) Happy Reading! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds


Once Enemies, Now Lovers by cococutie33
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 6]

Summary: AU. Y7. Draco and Hermione are Head Boy and Head Girl. Both are going through personal issues and trying to come into their own after the fall of Voldemort during the Ministry of Magic Battle Y5. Will familiarity breed contempt or romance for these two?

Plot setting aside, the story became much more interesting when the dialogue was injected into the narrative.

Be very cautious as you proceed: the temptation to simply supply information rather than develop interaction between characters is great. Choose your words wisely, both spoken and descriptive. A varied vocabulary will strengthen the reader's resolve to look for your story regularly. While your premise of a hate-to-love (lust?) relationshio between Draco and Hermione is not new, you have an opportunity to bring an unique spin to the 'ship.
Good luck.

Author's Response: Thank you for this awesome feedback! I agree about the dialogue vs narrative. For the purpose of an intro, narrative is what I went with. Hopefully you'll enjoy the unique spin I have planned for this pair.

Thisis DELIGHTFULLY fresh and spot on! Thank you for giving us a little backstory on Ginny and Harry and showing us the precious relationship between mother and daughter.

Author's Response: Thank you. A mother/daughter moment was something of a risk for me, as I'm neither a mother nor a daughter, I'm glad you liked it. -N-

A very nicely crafted introductory chapter. You present the reader with a bit of mystery: WHY did Harry buy the Muggle house? WHAT is the significance of waiting the 4 !/2 years and WHERE had Harry been living in the interim? Will the story reveal the reasons for Harry's avoidance of #12 Grimmauld Place? Is the interaction between House Elf and Master become the foundation for the rest of the story?
I look forward to reading your installments. Good luck!
