Summary: It was true that Daphne and Lee had met at a most inappropriate time, but they had found love, lust and the glimmerings of a life together.
But the power of persuasion should never be underestimated. When they meet again, years later, his indifference cuts to her core. Can the past ever truly be recaptured?
This story is a present for Julia (the opaleye) because she is amazingly talented and has inspired me in so many ways. It is also her brthday.

Author's Response: Hee hee. Hope that's a good 'eeek'. The Epilogue will follw soon, and then that's it. Thank you for reading and reviewing. ~Carole~
Loving this fic - so many plot twists!
Author's Response: Yayayay, thank you! I'm certainly having a lot of fun writing it and catching up with persuasion as well. :D ~Carole
I haven't read that particular work of Austen, but I'll definitely give it a read given how much I've loved this fic :) Seriously good! (I'd say something super fancy, but I'm still smiling from that ending!)
Author's Response: Glad you're smiling. Persuasion is a lovely book; I hope you enjoy it. Thank you for the review. ~Carole~
Summary: When impulsive new Auror Alice Hamilton is partnered with the more serious and experienced Frank Longbottom, neither is quite sure what to expect. They have a history, after all, and a different way of approaching the job. Yet in a world where dark forces continue to threaten the safety and security of the magical community, they must work together in spite of their feelings--especially when it becomes clear that You-Know-Who is planning a major offensive that will threaten both their relationship and their lives.
I love Alice and Frank's relationship and the realistic way that you write. Keep up the awesome work, and I look forward to the battle!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm so glad you are enjoying this story. I'm working on the battle but boy, it's hard work. ;) Hopefully it will work itself out soon. Thank you again for the review! ~Gina :)
Summary: All Scorpius Malfoy had wanted on the Saturday before Halloween was to spend some time in Hogsmeade alone with his girlfriend, Lily Potter. But Fate appeared to have other plans. Not only is her annoying cousin Hugo Weasley tagging along, but in the aftermath of a violent storm, a body is uncovered.
Working with his boss, Head Auror Harry Potter, to discover the identity of the victim, and the truth of her death, Scorpius quickly learns that not all skeletons are buried underground.
This is a the sequel to High. It is not necessary to read that to understand this, but what the heck, you might just enjoy it!

Author's Response: Thank you. Um, not sure how many more there will be as I'm really easing up on fanfiction so I can concentrate on original fiction. I have loved planning and plotting this, though, so if anything tempts me it will be something along the mystery lines. Thank you for all your reviews. ~Carole
