Curious. I also wonder how James became Lily's brother.

Author's Response: Well, this is a next-gen story, so James is Lily's sister. :) Thanks for reading!

Good, scary adventure. I'm still confused about why James is Lily's older brother in this story, but I liked the story otherwise. Good luck with the challenge.

Author's Response: Thank you! :)

Ah, I get it now: This is Harry's daughter Lily and son James. Maybe I would have realized it sooner if had known who Scorpius was. I wonder why Harry would give his cloak to James already?

Author's Response: Well, James is in his fifth year, so I assume that Harry would have given James the cloak by then because Harry had it when he was in school. :)

 

Four Christmases by Squibstress
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 2]

Summary: Minerva attempts to teach Severus Occlumency and perhaps something more.

Well, that was quite interesting and enjoyable. Though I found it curious that Minerva would be teaching Snape occlumency after Voldemort was gone, I accepted it and the memories that were shown. She understood something about him, without knowing the whole story, and tried to make him see that he was in denial. It didn't work. He remained in denial because that's what he preferred, and I think it was correct and true to his character. Well done.

Author's Response: Sorry to be so late in responding--I don't seem to be getting notifications reliably. Thanks for the kind words--Snape is a fascinating fellow to explore. I figured Albus knew Voldemort would return, so he asked Minerva to teach Snape (who would, of course, be an excellent student.) Thanks for reading!

Good story. I've never thought of Severus and Minerva together, but in this story it worked. I thought he would ask her to let him use the Time-Turner to go back and save Lily. Too bad he killed himself, it would have been nice for Hermione to see him again.

Author's Response: I think of them together all the time, LOL. I'm glad you think it worked here. Thanks for reading.

Good look at Hermione and Minerva at different points in their lives. Hermione must look great at 62 to flirt with much younger men. Makes sense about the Time-Turner-- Minerva must have given it to Hermione without any Ministry approval.

Author's Response: Thanks. I always suspected that witches and wizards age somewhat differently than Muggles (thinking of Dumbledore, Bathilda Bagshot and Griselda Marchbanks and their preternaturally long lives), so I suspect a 62-year-old Hermione might look younger than one expects. And of course, there are young men who are anxious the reap the benefits of having an older woman as a paramour, LOL! Yes, the Time-Turner business has always bugged me, so this was my way of rectifying the situation. Thanks for reading.

 

A Light in the Gap by WeasleyMom
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 8]
