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
Summary: Several years after the final battle, Dudley Dursley is struggling to come to terms with his past and the things he has done wrong. His life is turned upside down when he meets a charming young witch and is drawn into a path that leads him back into his cousin's world.
I am loving every moment this. Very well written, and everything is falling into place!
Uh oh, Dudley!!! Oh, and Dudley was stuck inside the cage in the movies. Book-canon, that didn't happen.
I completely agree with the Hogshead thing, but why would Malfoy tell Dudley anything? Snidgets... :D
This is great. I can't wait for the epilogue- maybe a look into the future with Dudley's family and Harry's family? Keep up the good work! :D
Summary: A poem about the moments where Lily Evans realized she was falling for James Potter against her better judgement.
Cool. I think you got the rhythm in this poem written really well. I love the transitioning of each stanza, you can really see Lily's transformation.
Good job! :D :D :D
Summary: “And quite honestly,” he turned away from the painted portraits, thinking now only of the four-poster bed lying waiting for him in Gryffindor Tower, and wondering whether Kreacher might bring him a sandwich there, “I’ve had enough trouble for a life time.”*
In search of some peace and quiet, The Gryffindor boys are reunited after the Final Battle.

Fantastic! I love all the parts, but especially the last two paragraphs- still the boys they were on the first day of their first year. Just maybe 7 years older. ;P
Good job! :D :D :D
Summary: Lily is usually impervious to the Marauders' teasing, but something has sent her running. Her friends don't know what's wrong, and Severus sure isn't about to ask James Potter. But Lily seems to be especially sensitive about this particular subject...
Summary: We all know Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger met at Hogwarts, became best friends, saved the world, fell in love, and got married.
But did they really meet for the very first time on the Hogwarts Express, or was there perhaps another moment in time, long forgotten by the time they turned eleven?
I absolutely love this! The ending is perfect, and the you wrote it really well even through the 2nd person. :D
Summary: Various characters throughout generations learn of the importance of names.
Author's Response: Thank you!
Summary: Scorpius Malfoy is the Seeker for Slytherin. Not only that, he's the best Seeker at Hogwarts, and it's his catches that win matches. But this year things are different; Albus Potter has switched to Chaser and the new Gryffindor Seeker is his annoying little sister.
This is the story of how one match and one missed catch can change your life.
This story was accidentally deleted, so is being resubmitted ... very very quickly.
SQUEEEEE! High won the Best Next Generation QSQ award. Thank you so much for the everyone who has helped, either by beta'ing or encouraging me.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling. I'm not sure who I am at the moment, but there must be some Arthur Weasley blood in me.
Thank you Natalie (hestiajones) for doing the vast majority of the beta work on this, and Apurva for work on the early chapters
Squish for Natalie, Jess, Kara and Bob for helping me sort this out.
Due to an archive hissy fit regarding any story with a rating about 3rd-5th, I have temporarily lowered the rating on this story. However, I have NOT changed the content. This story is still a 6th-7th. You click at your own risk.
I love this story... sigh. I wish it wasn't over. In your canon, do Lily and Scorpious stay together (as in forever)? :P
There's nothing to complain about, nothing bad to say about this story except for the fact that it ended. :D
Would you consider doing a sequel?
Anyway, just like the rest of your work, I absolutely enjoyed (obsessed-over, more like) reading this again. :D :D :D
Author's Response: Hmm, in my canon .... I can't tell you because I am planning a sequel, although it will be more about Scorpius and his work in Auror Dept and a murder that occurs. Glad you enjoyed reading this; I had so much fun writing it and thinking up new twists. Thanks for the review ~Carole~
Summary: What if, on that fateful October night, it was not Lily's sacrifice that saved Harry, but James' sacrifice that saved them both? What if Lily is left to pick up the broken pieces of her life after its been shattered into a million pieces? Who would be there to rescue her? Who would get her through the night? This is a story of loss, of pain, of hopelessness, and ultimately, of healing.
After much deliberation and input from all you guys who have read thus far, I have officially decided to continue this story. It was initially supposed to be a one-shot, but I've decided I already have too much of my heart invested in it to quit now. :) Second chapter in progress. Thanks, all! Advice and reviews are still very welcome!
Please continue!!! This is fantastic! Now I'm gonna have to snoop around your author page for something else... :P
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Just you (and everyone else) knows, I am still working on the story. I haven't given up. I was stuck for a while, and I've been insanely busy. I am currently working on the next chapter. :) Thanks for your enthusiasm and the review, you've inspired me to really kick it into high gear and get this next chapter done.
Summary: Her dad is famous for saving the wizarding world. If she takes Blaise Zabini's offer, Lily Luna will become famous for modelling knickers for Siren's Secret.
Would that be so bad?
I love this!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! ^_^
Summary: When Lily asks James to teach her how to play Quidditch, James comes up with an interesting analogy...
Harry and Ginny reach their centuries. Life after one hundred years in ten one-hundred word scenes.

I don't remember if I've ever reviewed this one, but I have read it before. :D
Reading this always makes me smile and feel rather happy. (I wonder why :P)
Two questions- is it safe to assume that we have met both Annie and Violet in other stories? And Lily Jones... Perhaps a relation of Hestia Jones? So many references, so little time! :P
If you don't mind me asking, is there anything you are currently working on? Can't wait! :D :D :D
Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
You have definitely met Annie and Violet before. Emrys Jones remains a mystery to me, although I’m beginning to suspect that he’s a Squib.One thing I’m working on will answer your question regarding Annie. After that: Hunters and Prey.
Summary: They're using his greenhouses and his plants to torment first years. Neville isn't going to let that slide, no matter who the tormentors - or the tormented - may be.
As always, the Harry Potter universe and everything in it is property of J.K. Rowling.
This story is on a temporary hiatus until I finish some of my other WIPs. Thank you for coming to check it out, and I promise I'm not going to just let it end here!
I love this! I love how Neville still remembers what Harry said to him in 1st year, after he'd been picked on by Malfoy, and that he says it to Malfoy's son! Oh, the irony! :P
February 2000 Newly Qualified (in record time) Auror Harry Potter remains obsessed with “The List.” The ten people still wanted for their part in the Battle of Hogwarts. Their capture is essential. It will bring closure to the events of the past few years. Harry has set himself a target.

This is getting very exciting! :D I particularly enjoyed reading the exchange with Hermione and Luna- very true to character. I can't wait for all your updates, what will be coming soon? How many chapters will H&P be? Good job!
Author's Response: Thanks.
I enjoyed writing the Hermione/Luna exchange. Next will (probably) be another challenge story, and after that, Strangers (I hope). H&P is supposed to be 17 chapters, but as chapter 15 (Badger and Raven Go Hunting) is already 4000 words and I’m not even halfway through it, it may end up being 18).-N-
Summary: The last time Harry had ever seen his Aunt Petunia, Uncle Vernon, and cousin Dudley had been during their uncomfortable parting, shortly before his seventeenth birthday. But surely, after sixteen solid years of sharing the same home, four people can't just forget each other.
I love this!
Cool, this was so enjoyable!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! He's one of my favorite characters of all time, as you can see from my username. I forget why the idea came into my head to write this, but I thought it was a story that begged to be told :)
Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs. Throw in Lily Evans and Severus Snape and you will wonder how all six managed to graduate from Hogwarts without being expelled.
WARNING: Contains: Secrets, Padfoot, Padfoot singing, Padfoot, and emotional Lily, Slytherins, and Padfoot.
Did I forget Padfoot?
This is iMusic17 of Slytherin writing for the final in the MWPP class on the Beta Boards. .
My gosh! This was awesome! I need to read it again!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. If you like the Marauders, you should take the next MWPP class that comes up on the boards! Thanks again, and I'm glad you liked it.
Summary: Victory Day. A day of celebration and remembrance . For Lily, it is also a day of confusion and sadness. She wants to understand in a world that knows no terror. This year, she'll discover exactly what Victory Day means to her.
Winner of the 2012 Next-Gen QSQ Award
This was fantastic! It totally captures the essence of time, and how things, especially the losses of others, can fade into nothing important over time. But I would have thought that Harry would have mentioned Colin Creevy to his kids.
Author's Response: Thank you! I suppose I just wanted to use a canon example people would recognise, thus Colin. Maple
