To whoever wants to read this, I can tell you that I'm a human. I'm hopelessly addicted to Harry Potter, and have been for a long time, I think that explains my annoying presence.

I find it harder to read and write non-canon fics.

I love writing, so I'm giving a stab at writing fanfic, and I can now say that I appreciate all of the authors on here about a gazillion times more. :P I hope that somebody will enjoy my work, but critique away! :D :D :D

This is great writing! I love Ron's kinda repeat of the Gryffindor thing, and I love the characterisation of them all.

Just a couple quick questions: what year is James in? Rose is a 3rd year, so Dominique would be a 6th?

I love the last sentence- "silently praying for bravery", double meanings FTW!

I can't wait for the next update! :D :D :D

Author's Response: Thank youuuuu! :D I thought that Ron in the Epilogue was absolutely hilarious, so I had to incorproate that somehow ^_^ James is a year older than Al, so he would be a fourth year. Dominique is a seventh year. I am really happy you liked this! <3


Honestly by Gmariam
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 48]

Summary: Past Featured StorySeven months after leaving Hogwarts, James Potter is fighting for the Order of the Phoenix. When Lily Evans joins the resistance, his life is turned upside down. He'd proposed, after all, and she had said no. How could they work together now, after so much history together? Or could they find another chance amidst the war?

Oh, I can't wait for the next chapter! This is fantastic, as with all your fics. So, is Lily 19, and James 18 in this one? Does it tie in with Raindrops, or just Another Chance?

So many questions... :P Keep up the good work! :D :D :D

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! I'm so glad you've enjoyed it. Sometimes I worry about taking it on the chin when trying something different with these breaking them up, lol. So yes, I think Lily just turned 19 and James will be 19 in March. Merlin, they are so young! As for the tie in, hmmmm. Really, I have so many 7th year stories, it could go with loads of them. But as far as any continuity, The Poppy Field is the failed proposal at the end of the school year, and Another Chance is the bit at Christmas, then this. And then I've got a few other post Hogwarts stories - another proposal and a wedding - that should fit, and a long ME planned for November, 1979 (so about ten months from this story, lol) Next chapter VERY soon, thanks again!! ~Gina :)

Wow. I hate cliffhangers, but this one is GOOD. :P I love fast updates, you're absolutely fantastic!

You have a little mistake, in the sixth paragraph:

"And since they saw nothing suspicious whatsoever, it almost felt like date this time." should be "like a date"

I love the chapter title, it made me laugh. :D I'll be making sure that when I eat out again, to be very careful. :P (if I go back in time, a good 20 years...)

Do you know how many chapters there will be in this story? I can't wait for the next chapter! :D :D :D

Author's Response: Haha, if you've read any of my other stories you know I LOVE cliffhangers. Literally - as in sending people over cliffs and everything. Wow, I just realized I've done that twice, yikes. I need a new go-to for a good cliffie, lol. Anyway. I'll nip in and add that missing word, thanks. As for how long this will be - nothing like my biggest, that's for sure. Six chapters, maybe? Seven, eight? That's about it. Glad you took the author's note to heart, enjoy your pasta. ;) THank you again!! ~Gina :)

I agree with the whole "Petunia-being-nice-thing" :P, because there is a lot about her that can be seen in the books. She was more a part of the magic world than Vernon or Dudley.

This was eloquently written, and I love your style. I think I'll go see if you've written anything else. :D :D :D

Author's Response: Thank you! Yes, I've written a few more things, several years ago, I believe. They are all on here :)

Date: 10/10/12 Title: Chapter 1: Three Legged Race

I was completely overjoyed when I got an email telling me that you had posted a new story. :D

As per usual, you did a fantastic job. This really hits home. Harry, based on what we see read about in the books and saw in his Occulemency classes, doesn't let on to anybody about how awful his past really was. This just seems to be a deeper look into what Harry feels. I doubt that he'll ever fully retell his childhood horror stories.

A sad beginning, but I'm curious for more. Will there be a focus on Harry's past, or will the story take a happier turn?


Author's Response:
Thank you.

It wasn’t until I started writing this story that I realised that, by sending James to a Muggle school, Harry was placing James in situations he himself had faced as a child. The decision will stir up a lot of suppressed memories. I think that, over the years, Ginny will find out a lot about Harry’s childhood.

This will be no more than three chapters, and the rest will take a happier turn.



Afraid of the Dark by Gmariam
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 7]

Summary: The fears of one's youth are often quite different than the fears of adulthood. For some, it remains the same, simply shifting form as one's fear moves from without to within.
For Sirius Black, light will always conquer any fear of the dark.

Wow, this is fantastic. You made the third person really natural, and instead of it being really clunky and acting like it's the elephant in the room, it flowed beautifully.

It's kind of ironic that Sirius Black is afraid of the dark, but you captured it and made it something else. A wonderful job, as per usual, and it really makes you think about Sirius in a different light (that was an unintentional pun). There's a lot about Sirius in the fifth book that could be expanded, and I really wish we had some more time with him in the books.

Great job, I can't wait for whatever you have next! :D :D :D

Author's Response: Thank you once again for the lovely review! I am so glad you are enjoying these stories, and really appreciate you taking the time to leave a note (a lot of readers don't, I think) I am even happier you found it so well done. It was tricky, to be sure. But the vision of Sirius's boggart being a darker vision of himself just really struck me and I had to go with it. I mean, we have this surface impression of him that isn't always very positive, but he must have had a hard life, both as a youth, as a fighter in the war, in Azkaban, and after. So there is depth to him - so much to be expanded. Thanks again for reading this!! ~Gina :)

My mind has been blown. Yet another wonderful story, a great piece of writing, but James and Sirius? I'm still trying to digest it. I guess I'm guilty of being a complete L — J shipper, but wow. :D

I must say that if you don't think that it would happen, yet you can write something like that so convincingly, it's just more proof of what a fantastic writer you are. :D

I love the setting, it's kinda ominous, and you can almost hear the slow, creepy music playing in the background. You make it seem perfectly plausible, which makes me scramble to catch up with what has just happened. Good job, and Happy Birthday to Soraya. :D :D :D

Author's Response: Wow, I don't feel like I very often blow people's minds, so I'll take that as a high compliment! Thank you! As you've read a fair few of my stories, you know I am the biggest J/L fan possible, so it always sort of amazes me that I can pull off something like this. It's actually the second time I've written James/Sirius - the first time they were actually together! And I've written James/Remus too! Eep! LOL! I guess I just like trying to make it a tiny bit plausible within the scope of James/Lily. Glad I succeeded here, it was a very visceral scene for me to write, but fun. Thank you so much for all your amazing reviews, they are so very much appreciated!! ~Gina :)

This was beautiful- I love the tribute (I don't know why, but I HAVE to call him "Lupin") I really liked meeting him in the books, and I've always appreciated how Lupin manages to stay afloat. He's quite emotionally strong, to be truthful.

The speed (bad word choice, but I'm brain dead) of the ending, from "A red gleam appeared" to "Overshadowed him..." is amazing, and it takes my breath away. Keep up the good work! :D :D :D

Author's Response: Thank you! :) When I said reviews would be nice, I just meant that I enjoyed seeing some reviews from you and wouldn't mind more. And I really enjoyed seeing that you liked this poem! I can't believe that practically my entire author page is made up of poems- only about four or five stories are actually stories, which makes e laugh a bit. I am a little on the poetic nut side. :D Thanks again for your review! ~Nagini

Reviewer: HumanHorcrux Signed
Date: 12/24/12 Title: Chapter 1: Little Piece of Heaven

This is great! It definitely is hard to write in the present tense, so kudos to you. I have one nitpick/request that I would like to give, and it's that you use contractions more frequently- it lets the story flow with more ease. For example, here: "since I had got together with James, we have become good friends", could become 'since I'd got together with James, we've become good friends".

That is all my opinion, however, so I would like you to know that I found this one-shot very enjoyable. Happy Holidays, and keep up the good work! :D :D :D

Author's Response: Thanks for the advice :) and thanks for liking my story :D Happy Christmas (I'm English, we don't say 'Holidays' for some strange reason) to you too!

This was a pleasant surprise. I was slightly confused by your warning, but once I'd figured it out, it was fantastic! I love the idea of Annie's POV, and how you had added Annie saying that her mum had asked her about "head miss sprout". Truly in character, even through the eyes of a 3 year old.

I'm looking forward to whatever comes next! Happy Holidays! :D :D :D

Author's Response:
