April showers bring May...hassles? Bridesmaid blues and big trouble from small favours complicate Tonks' life when all she wants is to bring her love for Remus into full bloom.
Tom Fenton... Tom Felton? connection? hahaha :) Great story!
Author's Response: Fun with names is a perk of fan fiction. Reviews are another bonus, so thank you for letting me know you liked the reference . . . and the story! :)
Summary: James would do anything to get inside Lily’s head. Lily would do anything to get away from James. Lily was brewing a banned potion. James went to find her. Lily made a mistake and the potion exploded. James got his wish, but is it much more than he bargained for?
After a year the Epilouge is now up! Come read for a bit of fun!!
Runner up QSQ - Best Chaptered Canon Romance
Reason for Nomination:
This is the most unique take on how James and Lily really got to know each other. The story is hilarious and keeps you laughing throughout, but it never lets you forget the serious stuff. Plus, she somehow manages to end each chapter with a nice cliffhanger.
I love this story so much! At first I was a little wary about the whole switching bodies thing but it is brilliant! You have made me laugh and cry! Also I love how at the end how you do the soap opera thing "Next time on.." It makes me smile! :D
It was like a wizard tale. The clever Slytherin helps a hag who later repays the debt. Except that Rose Weasley wasn't a hag, and Scorpius didn't expect to call in the favour.

hahahahaha Miley Siren! that's great! just great! :) I agree that she can't sing... :)
Author's Response: Hello again! I think she can sing . . . but I wish she wouldn't. :P
awww! :D sorry for the lack of a good review, but that's all I can say I'm in awe of the cuteness of this story! :D
Summary: Percy Weasley has finally found, at age twenty-one, a decent place to live and a level ground with his family. The only thing troubling him in his life is not knowing what is holding him back from promotion at the Ministry.
His life is as uncomplicated as he could ever want. That is until a homeless young woman with the ability to make him as nervous as a schoolboy shows up on his door. His Gryffindor chivalry demands he help her and her terrible situation, but the feelings she stirs in him are far from gentlemanly.
Audrey Sparks has a job to do. An undercover job involving Percy Weasley. But she soon learns that her conscience won't let her merely steal from him and then leave.
Hearts may well be stolen instead. A Percy Weasley/Audrey Sparks Romance
This is so great! I hope you update it even though you haven't in 2 years! I'm always interested in Percy and I'm glad you haven't put him with Penelope...blehg
Author's Response: Hahaha, you're welcome. Thanks for reading

Thanks for stopping in, and I'm glad you like it. :D
Summary: Who said once Lord Voldemort died the wizarding world would be safe? Molly Weasley II and Albus Potter find out it isn't firsthand nearly as soon as term starts.
In this multiple POV story we see the daily lives of our favorite characters' children and how different their lives are. When they are finally back at Hogwarts and with their friends, we see that their lives really aren't as different from their parents as we think.
I'm really liking this story! I hope you keep writing it. I absolutely LOVE good canon next gen so keep it up! :)
Author's Response: Oh wow, thanks for the review! Sorry I didn't see this before, I didn't realize the chapter finally got validated. I'm glad you are liking it! I will put the next chapter in the queue now. :)

Yay! You updated it! I'm really loving how you are telling this story from a muggle's point of view. It makes it much more interesting! Can't wait for the next chapter! :)
Author's Response: Thanks. Jacqui's observations of her slightly odd new neighbours and friends the Potters are, I think, what makes this story a bit different. More soon. -N-
“You and I, we'll be young forever!” *
After a long, interesting, sweltering summer the Marauders are back for their sixth year, and they feel as though their teenage lives have only just begun.
James has been pursuing Lily for years, and he sure as hell isn't going to give up now. Sirius might actually be falling in love (though of course that can't be possible, can it?), and Remus is struggling with problems in his own family. Meanwhile, Peter has to decide how much worth he can put on friends who he will never live up to. And then there's Lily Evans, a girl who's starting to fall for the very man she swore not to. Diana McKinnon, her best friend, keeps finding herself staring at a certain grey-eyed Gryffindor, even though every piece of logic she has tells her that he's trouble.
But even though there's the looming danger of NEWTs, pranks, oily Slytherins, and physical education, a much bigger problem has presented itself. The Marauders' sixteen-year-old world isn't the safe place it used to be. There are rumors of danger and dark magic throughout the school, and of a powerful dark wizard named Voldemort. The Gryffindor sixth years have to decide where their true allegiances lie and how much they are willing to sacrifice for a war that seems impossible to win.
*Title and quote taken from the lyrics of Katy Perry's summer hit Teenage Dream.

Lots and lots and lots of love, Olivia
This is so great! I love how it's a mix of action (which I love) and fluff (which I REALLY love). I'm interested to see how Remus's crush on Lily plays out, I don't not like it it's just hmm. Keep it coming! :D

This is really great!! Have you written anymore about these two? (It's probablly on your author page but I haven't had a chance to look at all your work yet.) :) I really enjoyed this. Please write more! You are definitely one of my favorite authors!

A haunted house that isn’t haunted, a Muggle fortune teller who can’t actually tell fortunes and the legend of the Cursed Green Pearl! What happens when “the nation’s favourite television ghost-hunters” stumble onto something really magical? What (apart from a mysterious chest, a broken red stiletto and a corpse) lies within the topmost room of the Haunted Tower?
It’s time for the Auror Office’s Muggle Interface Team - Brown, Bones and Beadle - to investigate.
This is Northumbrian of Ravenclaw house writing for the 2011 Mysterious May Challenge in the Great Hall - Extra Credit Prompt
This is one of four mystery stories I wrote for the Challenge. Until now I’ve resisted editing this story as to do so will (I believe) mean that it can’t be judged as part of the challenge (editing after the closing date is cheating). I can’t wait any longer.
Hey! This is a great story but I'm a little confused about Bobbie. Is she a muggle working with the aurors? do you have any other stories that describe her in more detail? Other wise a great story! thanks~Sarah :)
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Detective Inspector Robert E Beadle is indeed a Muggle, and one day I'll tell the story of how, and why sge ended up working with the Auror Office. She also appears in MIT: Muggle Interface Team, and in 9the unfinished, sorry) MLT. -N-
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. He wants to see “The Last Death Eater” and the other nine captured before the second Anniversary of the battle. His attempts to meet his target will bring heartbreak, danger, pain, and a lifechanging injury for one former DA member.

Yay! I was so happy to see that you put the next chapter up! Do you have any idea when the next one will be up and how many chapters there will be?
Author's Response: Thank you.
Unless things change (which is possible, but unlikely) there will be 17 chapters.14 - The Snare: Beater Grouses, 15 - The Prey: Badger and Raven go Hunting, 16 - The Prey: Cornered Rats (that title will probably change), and 17 Epilogue: (untiled as yet).
Summary: Ms A Cadwallader wishes to improve herself and apply for a better job. Unfortunately, despite her impeccable qualifications, she is thwarted by a certain Junior Under Secretary for the Minister of Magic, who has let it be known that basic spelling errors can never be over looked.
This story, written in the style of a series of letters, first appeared in The Battle of the Genres over at the SBBC forum.
I am not JK Rowling. She would probably have been more amusing.
This story is for Minna because it was her birthday and she likes this pairing.
Thank you Natalie for liking the drabble and encouraging me to expand.

But his friends have other ideas.

Harry waits for someone to meet him at Godric's Hollow on Christmas Eve. This is a story about growing up, moving on and remembering your past without taking it with you.
H/Hr friendship with a bit of H/G
You made me cry! This was so wonderful! I have know idea how you got so much emotion in this story but you did, nice job! :)

I'm loving this! :) Just one thing, maybe use 'mum' all the way through instead of mom and then mum. Just a suggestion to make it more British :)
Author's Response: Thanks! We'll definitely take that into consideration.
