Summary: Lavender Brown is not the easiest of people to get along with. Mark has managed to overcome the first hurdle, she has finally agreed that they are going out together. Now Mark faces another challenge.
Love it!!! I seem to repeat that one phrase over and over. Well it's true. And it seems to sum up my feelings perfectly, so...
Author's Response: Thanks. This is the second (chronologically) of my Mark/Lavender stories. Moon - this - and then Moons. -N-
Summary: The story of Ron and Hermione through a series of missing moments. Who said love was simple?
So. I liked all of it, some of it I loved. The argument they had in the Chamber of Secrets was brilliant. The things you potrayed as Hermione's insecurities and fears were wonderful, totally canon compatible and very original. I've never seen anyone else interpret Hermione like that. The cup emitting a vapor that turns into something felt a bit too familiar. I absolutely enjoyed how you wrote Ginny and what happened during the cease fire. The back sandwich argument was BRILLIANT !!!
The whole fic is very well balanced so that you don't explain things too much and don't fill in every single second and gap, but you still manage to tell so much that the gaps are easy to fill and one really feels that one has seen behind the scenes. And I haven't seen a single word that somehow undermines canon or hints that canon might not be totally true.
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing the chapter again! Hermione's fears were just taken from her boggart and twisted a little. Yeah, the vapour thing I was never quite happy with seeing as it seems to happen in every version of this moment but I could't think of another way of showing what I wanted to show. I love Ginny so I'm glad you think I did her justice. Bacon is very dear to Ron after all. And thank you :) I really wanted these moments to fit perfectly with canon so it's great that you think they do! Thanks for reviewing again :)
I really like the interaction between Ron and Hermione in this chapter. Although I do think that you had it spot on all along through the whole story. This is a wonderful story and it stays true to canon in every detail. CONGRATULATIONS! And thank you so MUCH for finishing it.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! I'm really glad that you enjoyed it and liked the characterisation - that was what I was most worried about. Haha, thank you and it was my pleasure :)
WOW! Masterful. I just read through all the chapters and LOVED it. I really am in awe of how you get Ron so perfectly. Your take on Hermione is also brilliant. What struck me was how you really know your canon, I never would have remembered that when Ron shows up alone at Shell Cottage that Bill and Fleur would have to first make sure its him.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading all of this! I'm really glad that you liked my characterisation of them both. Haha, well, that's what you get when you read these books way too many times - you know their lives better than you know your own :)
Liked some of it a lot, some not as much. Too overwhelmed to analyze.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! Well, I'm glad you liked some of it, but I'm sorry about the parts you didn't. Hopefully the last chapter will be better :)
Summary: It was the night before Christmas and Ron Weasley's plans for a quiet night in with his pregnant wife and her infuriating cat don't quite go to plan.
Like it. Though being a Mom it is scary to read. I'm a firm believer in epidurals.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading again! Haha, it is pretty terrifying when you think about it...
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
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing again :)
Summary: This story is a missing moment from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. We know Ron and Hermione descend into the Chamber of Secrets in search of basilisk fangs, and we know they succeed. But what exactly happened down there? This story provides a possible answer to that question.This is WeasleyMom of Hufflepuff writing for the Illustration for Inspiration Challenge in the Great Hall. My inspiration was a drawing done by Carole/EquinoxChick, featuring Hermione's hand stabbing the cup with a basilisk fang. Thanks, Carole! You unknowingly pushed me to write something I've had in my head since DH came out. Thrilled to announce this story tied for third place in the challenge! Holy Hufflepuff! This won a 2012 QSQ Award for Best Canon Romance, one-shot! I am thrilled and so, so grateful!
Wow! Nearest to canon of all the ones I've read about this scene. They don't profess undying love to each other and you don't mention Ron learning Parseltongue 5 years ago, when I think he learned the phrase as Harry opened the locket. I love the book idea, all the horcruxes that we see in the book die very differently so any story that has the cup morphing into Ron mocking Hermione doesn't seem to do justice to the original book.
Author's Response: Oh dear. Glad I've not encountered the idea that Ron learned Parseltongue along the way. As I see it in canon, it's a gifting, not something you can really learn. Ron's managed one phrase, but I doubt he could hold a conversation, haha! I'm glad you liked this and thought it worked well into existing canon. I so appreciate your comments and you taking the time to leave a review! Cheers! ~Lori
Summary: Ron and Hermione have some news.
Highly emotional, wonderful and simly genius. Love it!! I sometimes wish you'd concentrate more on Ron and Hermione, but I enjoy the Potters and the Moons so much in the end I just hope you'll write something, anything at all.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
Sometimes I think I should write more about Ron and Hermione, too. It’s not that I don’t have the ideas; it’s simply finding the time. I’ll see what I can do, but in the short term you’ll have to make do with a H/G&R/H one-shot. -N-
Summary: It's been weeks of funerals after the Final Battle, and Ron and Hermione are long overdue for some time not spent crying.
Liked it. Thanks for publishing it. The idea of Ron confiding in his Dad is lovely and I haven't read it in any other fic. ;)
Theodore Nott, the other Slytherin. Who is this mysterious person who remains in the background. Who are his friends? Whose side is he on? Does anyone know? Does he know?
This is Northumbrian of Ravenclaw writing for Round Two (Minor Characters) of the 2012 Madam Pomfrey’s One-Shot Character Triathlon.
Whenever I read a story like this I wonder wether anyone actually can be so calculating and control their emotions to such a degree. Maybe it is a blessing that I have been spared such knowledge.
Anyway, the story is masterfully crafted.
Author's Response: The Notts are certainly obsessive and controlling. I like the idea that they were a lot more cautious, sneaky and clever than the Malfoys. Plus Theo makes a great villain. :-D -N-
Luna attends the International Symposium on Fantastic Beasts in Sweden. She is looking for proof of the existence of the Crumple-Horned Snorkack. What she finds is something else entirely.

I liked this story.
Author's Response: Thank you. -N-

Life exists to procreate, to recreating itself, being created by many different methods. Because of that urge to create new life, Auror Albus Potter finds himself in trouble.
This is Northumbrian of Ravenclaw writing for Round Two (Minor Characters: Harry Potter’s birthday) of the 2012 Madam Pomfrey’s One-Shot Character Triathlon.
Every new story I read from I start hoping that you update it soon, but there so many now if complied with my wishes you wouldn't have time for anything else at all. I guess I need to learn patience.
Author's Response: Thank you. This was intended as a one-shot, and it will remain as a one-shot. However I do have plans for a sequel, and I also know a great deal about “The Durmstrang Exchange”. One day I’ll write it. -N-
Summary: Life and love go hand in hand, and two people know that more than anybody else in the world.
It is beautiful and clearly H&G, so well done for someone who hates them
Author's Response: Well, I don't hate them... I just don't like it as much as what I initially thought was going to happen (Harry/Luna, 'cause OotP.) Thanks, anyways, for the review!
Summary: There is magic the likes of which humans can barely remember and seldom experience. There is, however, a handful of men privileged enough to experience a part of it: the Dryad's Consorts.
Written for the last third of Madame Alex's Character Triathalon!
Many thanks to Maple for the beta; I couldn't see myself sending this one to anyone else.
Anything you recognise is JKR's. Anything you don't recognise is possibly mine, but probably JKR's.
Wood-nymphs, more commonly known as Dryads, are first and last mentioned in the Potterverse by Fleur in Goblet of Fire. In Greek mythology, these cunning magical creatures are entirely female, and must capture and seduce human men in order to bear daughters and heirs to their forests. In other works of literature they are described as bold and highly territorial, with voracious, er, "appetite" for particular intimate activities. So, basically a shy Herbologist's every fantasy...
Tom and Camelia are two people in search of something unobtainable, and each is prepared to kill to achieve their goal. For both, murder is simply the means to an end. For both, their victims are unimportant; they are merely collateral damage in the quest to live forever. What happens when two very different killers meet?
This is Northumbrian of Ravenclaw House writing for Round Three of the 2012 Character Triathlon.
Mysterious. The ambiance is perfect. I like the hints of Dracula.
Author's Response: Thanks. I’m a big fan of Dracula (the novel). -N-
Annabel is having a bad day. Her sudden and unexpected meeting with a face from her past is unlikely to improve matters.
This was Northumbrian of Ravenclaw House writing for Round Three of the 2012 Character Triathlon. This is now a longer chaptered story.
Nominated for: Best Original Character (Chaptered) story (for the narrator, Annabel) and Best Next Generation Story - Quicksilver Quills 2013
Iiik! I'm in SHOCK. I like this turn of events, but... I don't want Anna's heart broken again! and I just can't see this working out. They're perfect together, BUT she is a muggle. I guess that just shows that deep down I'm a racist. No, not Ku Klux Klan, but the "our worlds are so different, we have nothing in common, which Sunday School will our kids go to" - kind of socially handicapped narrow minded person. Apparently I start planning the wedding immediately after the first date.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I had always (at least ever since I wrote Centuries) intended for James and Anna to meet up later in life. She is a Muggle, but so was Dean’s mother, and Seamus’s father. Is it an insurmountable problem? You’ll find out when I continue this story. -N-
I want to write a fanfic about this story, but it took me over 5 years to write my first fanfic based on HP, so you'll have finished the story by the time I find time to write. I wanted you to know that your writing affects me as much as JKR's does. And I keep rereading and finding new stuff in them.
Author's Response: Thank you for the compliments. Among the many stories I’m working on is a sequel to this (set five weeks later). It’s provisionally entitled “Thunderbird” and it will probably be a one-shot. There is, however, the possibility that it will be a two-parter like this one. -N-
Thanks!!! for writing more Annie!!!!
I love everything so far. I hope James has changed his ways
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I hope so, too, because things are going to get a little bumpy. -N-
Summary: The trio's friendship hangs in the balance when one of them makes an unexpected move on another. Trio friendship fluff.
I'm still smiling after an hour sin e reading this. ;)
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing again! I'm glad you liked it :)
