If anyone wants to check out my stories, I'm on Potions and Snitches and FanFiction.net. I'm Con Moto on both sites. I'm under the name All_was_well on HPFF but I've stopped updating my stories on there.
Summary: Al doesn't like his name. Or being named after two oddballs. He asks Uncle Ron, “Why couldn’t Mum have named me instead?” so then maybe he could have had a better name. Well, this is why...
Big thanks to Azhure for beta-ing this!
Haha that was perfect and so funny! I've never read a story with Ron and Al talking and I thought you did a great job. 10/10!
Summary: Remus Lupin and Nymphadora Tonks both died alone; their friends would never know the story of their last breaths.
Here is, at least, the tale of the death of one of them. Tonks is looking everywhere for her husband, but in the end she will have to face the terrible truth and her own fate...
You meanie, you made me cry! That was so beautiful. I have no words.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the praise. I want to say I'm sorry that I made you cry, but it's meant to be sad, and it's a very tragic couple, isn't it... Thanks for taking the time to read and review!
Summary: Even as a grown woman, Parvati Patil still has a small box that holds her memories. A fraction of the countless letters she received from her best friend (and copies of the letters she sent her) and notes passed between them at school are in there too - and even a page of the diary she hardly ever used.
One part of those old letters are the only reminder of Parvati's first love; a love never openly admitted to, and a love never requited.

Haha this was so funny! I loved what they said about Cho...so true.
Parvati and Lavender were pretty close. They should have got more attention in canon. Sure, they are *slightly* shallow, but I think they're kinda interesting.
You write amazingly, by the way!
“Lord Voldemort has never had a friend, nor do I believe that he has ever wanted one.”
-Dumbledore, HBP, ch 13
Dumbledore was rarely wrong, only once did Lord Voldemort desire a friend. It started out as only a game, but became so much more…
This is the story of how the teenaged Tom Riddle met a unique individual and slipped from cold indifference, to affection, to friendship, to romance. Discover how even Voldemort’s cold and callow heart was once broken beyond repair. This is for anyone curious about how an imperfect love warped and twisted a corrupt young man into the Dark Lord.
Oh my... That was heartbreaking. I can't believe how you can make such an unfeeling, hateful person so human. I loved how you made me sympathise with Voldemort even though I hate him in canon. What he did with Lydia's body was so fitting yet so sinister because he ordered the attack. And he said I love you... Oh my goodness. Wow. Thank you for this amazing story, you are so talented. I'll look forward to the epilogue!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm really glad to hear that Tom's character came off the way I wanted it to (he's not an easy guy to write). I was hoping I didn't push it too far with the 'I love you' so it's a relief to know you liked it. (Also, the reason the chapter was titled Swan Song).
Thanks you very much for your lovely review,
No, Lydia what have you done?! Please don't turn into a sadistic tyrant like Tom. I know she is very upset about how her family is targeted by werewolves, but to make two brothers fight each other or their lives?
Anyway, don't think I didn't like this chapter because I did:) it was so dynamic and fast paced and something we haven't seen in this story for a while. Thank you:)
Author's Response: I'm glad that you still liked the chapter in spite of what Lydia's been up to. I found it to be a very difficult chapter to write, even though I've known what would happen to Loki for a quite a while.
Thank you for reviewing,
I can't believe this is over! I loved every singe chapter; you've done a brilliant job!
So is Hestia Tom's daughter? That last line made it sound like she was...
Thank you for this story, it's been amazing!
Author's Response: I'm so glad you enjoyed it! And yes, Hestia is Tom's daughter (although he never suspected). After Lydia knew for certain (hearing Hestia speaking with a garden snake) she had wanted to tell him, but it was when he was still travelling the world (before Hestia discovered Tom's Horcrux). After Lydia realised that Tom had split his soul, she decided it would be better for Hestia if Tom never knew that he had a daughter. Hestia grew up believing that Hadrian was her father. If Hadrian ever doubted that he was Hestia's bilogical father, he never showed it.
Thank you for your lovely reviews,
I only just made an account here so this is my first review for your amazing story.
I started reading this last year and I'm so in love with it! It's so detailed and Lydia is my favourite OC. I love how you characterise Tom as well. Everything is flawless and I have no words for it. I squeal every time you update and I really loved this chapter, especially the note at the end:) :)
Author's Response: I'm extremely flattered to be the recipient of your first review! I love writing Tom and Lydia and find it really encouraging to know that there are people out there who are enjoying their story.
Thank you again for your review,
Amazing! Was that Lydia or was it a misunderstanding on Tom's part? "Tom discovers a new use for amethyst"... Does her necklace have some sort of transforming powers? I'm so excited for the next update; this I great!
Author's Response: Both of your questions should be answered in the next chapter, which will be experiencing a slight delay in posting. I'm currently experiencing some 'technical' difficulties but I'm hoping to be back on track within a week.
Thanks for reviewing,
Awesome chapter! I loved the chess game. They haven't played it face to face in ages.
Poor Lydia. I wouldn't imagine her to be the type of person to use an Unforgivable, but I guess her situation with those werewolves warrants it in her eyes.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed the chess game. It took me a while to decide whether or not she'd opt for an Unforgiveable Curse, but I think that if she felt her family was being threatened, she would. (Kind of like how Harry attempted the Cruciatus Curse on Bellatrix and Amycus). And you're definitely right in that whenever werewolves are involved, Lydia's emotions take control; I think everyone has their own blind spots.
Thanks for reviewing,
Yay, I'm happy that Tom and Lydia are speaking again:)
The pictures that Gavin drew are intriguing. I wonder what's happening? Please update soon, I'm on tenterhooks :)
Author's Response: I'm really glad that you enjoyed the part about the drawings! I don't know how much of the background to Gavin's sketches will make it into the story yet, so I'm going to have to stay fairly quiet about that for now. I guess my only hint would be that it has to do with the lunar cycle. On the bright side, the next chapter will probably be posted within a week.
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.

Author's Response: Thanks :)
Wow, that was beautiful! Very well written :)
Author's Response: Thank you! :)
Summary: It's the longest start but the end's not too far away... It took Ron and Hermione years to finally get together but after just eighteen months everything is starting to crumble around them.
Oh that was just beautiful! Very well done, I loved every bit of it!
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! I'm really glad you enjoyed it :)
