Summary: The war is over. Voldemort is gone. His Death Eaters are gone--except for two. Bellatrix and Rodolphus Lestrange remain at large.
What will happen when someone from Bellatrix's past finds her beaten and broken? Could she ever have a second chance?
I'm sorry I don't have time to review each one of the chapters, but I would like to revie all the chapters as a whole. I'm sorry this took me so long, I've been tied up. But anyway, your vie wof Rodolphus is very different fomr mine. He's just so cruel, especially in this story. Poor Bella blind.... that's really a shame. This is a wonderful story all the same though. I love Andy and Ted is wonderful too. You have such a flair for characters. And the Muggle-born Healer was a touch of inspiration!
Author's Response: Hehe. Rodolphus. Yep, we sure think of him very differently. And if you think he\'s cruel now. There\'s more to come. I think he probably is at his nastiest in this story. At least, the nastiest that I have written him, yet.
I\'m glad you liked Elizabeth. I was trying to think of something that would really upset Bella, show that she is still the same person and her views haven\'t changed, show how helpless she is feeling, and at the same time I wanted it to be something that was meant to help her. Elizabeth was born!
Thank you so much for all of your compliments. I absolutly love your reviews.:)
Aww! that was sweet! I feel very sad that Cissy didn't have a chance to bond with Andromeda. Poor Cissy! And I really wish both Bella and Andy could get their wishes. But alas they can't. What is done is done. Damn! She should have married my Lord MacLaine (tee hee!) Then everything would have turned out right! Great chapter! Looking forward to the next!
Author's Response: Thanks I\'m glad your enjoying this.
And I think rather it\'s in my fan fic or J.K\'s books the Black sisters got a bad deal. I have always felt bad for all them.
Should have married Lord MacLaine, huh? Well Voldie probably would have been an improvement to my Rodolphus, so I\'m not sure if your foreshadowing something in your fic or just pointing out that my Rodolphus is an evil git, which of course, he is. *ponders*
Thanks again for reviewing!:D:D
Summary: Hi, I’m Lily Evans. You know, there are a lot of fics about me out there. I’m flattered that you spend time thinking about me, but sometimes sickened. How could these fics not mention my
bonkers beautiful cat, Missy? And what about my evil and malicious extremely helpful conscience? Or the fact that I make a fool out of myself at every opportunity am unique?
Well, this fic has all of these things. It also has L.O.V.E (I’m the ‘L’), the elite group of
cliquey lovely girls that I am part of. And our rival, the sarcastic cynic also unique Iola Potter (cousin and partner in crime to James). But does it have an actual plot? Of course not Absolutely! And it starts with me getting a detention with Iola (through no fault of my own, of course). And we kind of ... almost ... well, we get on alright. A friendship sparks, shall we say. I have no idea how it happens It is meant to be. But it’s going to take some fighting for if we want to keep it. It would be a lot easier to just stick to what we know, really. We were perfectly happy hating each other. But ... well. I guess you’ll have to find out!
Read this or I’ll curse you Read this and I’ll love you!
What the flamingo? Ha, ha, ha! Sounds like something Sirius would say! Again, lovely job. The Iola, Lily, and LOVE predicament is sort of like whats going on with my friends at the moment. You see, MK's brought someone in who we all can't stand, and its sort of causing tension. So, hey, your plot is believable as well as funny. Kudos!!! great chappie
Author's Response: Of COURSE it\'s believable, this kind of thing happens to teenage girls EVERY DAY. As I\'m sure you well know, and any other teenage girl reading this. We are BRUTAL towards our enemies.
Oohhh, yes, the plot twist. Cool, I'm cool with it. Although, I'm beginning to despise Lily's girlie friends. I mean, I'm not much for feminine friendship any how. Since I last emailed a few things have changed you see, and I'm beginning to think boys are more tolerable company. Anyways, back to your story. Yes, L.O.V.E. is getting a little girlie/btichie towards Iola. And I don't believe what they said about her and James is true because... i don't know. I guess I like Iola too much to think that. Anyways, great chappie, Amy. I loved it!
Author's Response: Mwa ha ha, LOVE have been evil all along! I mean ... you\'ll have to wait and see what is true ... I\'m on such a high right now, you wouldn\'t believe. I just got back from a week of fresh air and no internet, which was nice at first, but MY COD IT\'S GOOD TO BE BACK.
Ohh, I feel she will be revealing a juicy plot point to Lily, eh? Great chappie, as usual. I would write a longer review but I really want to read the next chapter right now. yay for this fic and yaya for you. *huggles* ~LaLa
Author's Response: Ha ha, I feel your pain. Darn these cliffies. Not that I was the one to write them or anything ... okay, I want to see what you think of the next chapter, so this is a short reply. I will away!
Wow! I think Iola's home life is terribly dramatic and horrible, Amy!!! I almost cried over it! This was a great chapter, possibly one of my favorites because I guess a lot of people can relate to Iola now. I hate when fics have perfect characters with perfect lives and so many friends and exceptional beauty.... well, you get it. You are so creative Amy. Great job. I'm off to read the next chapter!!!
Author's Response: *swells with pride* Thanks so much! I was worried it would be kind of cliched. I don\'t like those perfect lives either, they just ... no. THANKS FOR ALL YOUR REVIEWS, it means so much!
Sirius jumps up. “Not at all. Prongs was right, I was secretly fascinated. Mad lot, those Greeks. Although I wasn’t high most of the time, I’ll have you know, I just liked being in a different country. However, if one gets an opportunity to infuriate ones friend, one must oblige, must one not?”
“Uh ... sure.”
For some reason I really loved that quote. Great chapter by the way. Well, I only have time for this last review today but I'll be back later to R&R the rest. great fic, Amy.
Author's Response: I look forward to the rest of your reviews, it\'s been a pleasure hearing them. Did I mention how FREAKING FANTASTIC it is for you to be back, and reviewing, and writing, and your good old normal self?? I missed this!
This was one of my favorite chapters so far, but hurry up and update and that may change. Oh terrific chappie. Iola is very witty, she makes me laugh-- or rather, the way YOU write her makes me laugh. I also love your portrayl of Sirius, which I might have mentioned before (that he's not a vicious womanizer). The L.O.V.E/Perfect girls are getting laughably ridiculous in their behaivoir. I mean, The Three Sexyteers? Like you said, shocking. Thanks for a good laugh, and UPDATE SOON AMY!!!
Author's Response: Heh heh, this chapter was so much fun ... and it\'s proving popular too. Yay! I\'m glad you like Iola and her wit, I like them both, too! And also Sirius. It\'s good to make him fun. It\'s also fun making fun of L.O.V.E ... what great times are had, eh? Thanks for reviewing, I\'ll update when I can!
Oh, that was so sad! I cant believe he died, of course I can't say he was my favorite chracter. Im so glad everyone forgives Lily. I mean wouldn't it be horrible if Iola hated her for that? WEll done chapter, I love this fic!
Author's Response: Hooray! Of course everyone would forgive Lily ... if it was me, I would want all the friends I could get to be there for me, and would be grateful to anyone that helped me see my father before he died ... even if it wasn\'t the happy, hugging, running-through-meadows reunion that they had hoped for. I\'m glad you\'re enjoying the fic ... there\'s not long left! *SOB*
Wow, Amy, this is amazing! I know I already betaed it for you and therefore read it, but the second reading was just as wonderful! You have great talent, really great talent, and you are very, very witty. You are one of the few authors who can make me laugh out loud while reading a fic (usually in room full of studying people who get annoyed by my childish giggles). Your new Lily is probably the best version of Lily ever created!! Your fic is just as good as Lily by Secret Lily, which I think is a very good read!!! Keep going Amy, can't wait for more chapters!!
Author's Response: Just as good? Wow, I\'m totally flattered! You\'re fantastic! Thank you so much, LaLa!!
Ahhh! Yay, I'm back and reviewing. Ah, yes, I remember betaing this chapter many moons ago! I FREAKING LOVE THIS STORY, AMY!!!! YOU ARE THE COOLEST. [/ bout of crazy enthusiasm for wonderful fanfic] I really like Iola's character, and lily is definately given originality here. Lovely, Amy, just lovely. Keep it up!
Author's Response: IT\'S SO FREAKING GOOD TO HEAR FROM YOU AGAIN!!!! Are you really, really, back? I LOVE YOU TOO!!!! *calms down* LaLa, you\'re the best, and I thank you soooo much for coming to read what\'s been happening in your abscence.
Cliffie? DAMN. ha! I loved that bit. I also liked the part about "pure boy-ness". Yay, well I'm off to read the next chapter. You are such a great writer Amy. You make me laugh, which is really what I need lately. Thanks for being so awesome!! YAY FOR AMY!!! peace, LaLa
Author's Response: Tee hee, pure boyness is what I have to live with everyday ... stupid brothers. I\'m glad you are liking this. I am loving the extra reviews. *HUGGLES*
yay, they're being nice to each other. I laughed out loud at Lily's memory of her grandad, which pretty much lets everyone in the room accuse me of insanity. But hey, when you gotta laugh, you gotta laugh! So ha, ha ha ha!! Yay for Amy. Again, another bril chapter!!
Author's Response: Hooray, another review! Are you going to do every chapter? I love you! Thankeeee so so much, I\'m glad you get to finally read this.
Summary: Keep Living. Sounds easy, right? Well, for George Weasley, it's not that simple. Not when he's lost his best friend, business partner, and twin brother. Can an old friend help him Keep Living?
Rated Mature for Violence, Character Death, and a bit of harsh Language!!
Completed when the third installment is submitted and accepted.
Yay, another fic by you! And a sad one at that! Bella is so evil... well, I like her, and I don't eblieve that one the inside she's THAT phsychotic, but maybe that's wishful thinking. But still, it's horrible that one twin has to go on without the other. Great writing! Keep going with this; I'll be back to review the rest!
Author's Response: LOL, thanks. I\'m glad you like it so far! The second part will be up soon, but I\'ll wanr you that the rest of it is a bit more on the fluff side... =) *Cheesy grin* But I enjoy Bella too, she\'s a grat character. =) She was just the only one I felt could play the part I needed. =) Thanks for the review!! =) --RP
Summary: The time has come. Bellatrix is finally being initiated into the Death Eaters. But was it really what she wanted? Was she really meant to follow the Dark Lord?
Written by Sly Severus of Slytherin for the Gauntlet's 3rd run
Oh, I am sooo sorry I've been MIA for a while, and I really don't have much time now, but I simply NEED to review this!!! It was soo powerful, possibly the bestest piece you've written so far... you keep improving! I loved this Rodolphus, as you probably guessed I would. And Bella was lovely. Cheers to our favorite Death Eater! Keep writing like this, and you'll be one of the best authors the world has ever known!!!! And please, continue writing Rodolphus like that, it makes me so warm inside :-).
Author's Response: You\'re alive! I was wondering about you. :D
Hehe, I\'m glad you liked my story and my softer version of Rodolphus. I\'m doing a chaptered Bella fic right now but he\'s not in that one much.
Anyway, thanks so much for the review and it\'s great to see you back! :D
Summary: Bellatrix has made a horrible decison and now she will be forced to live with the consequences, but will those consequences include losing her husband.
Written by Sly Severus of Slytherin for the February one-shot challenge.
Oh my goodness, how amazingly depressing and lovely and beautifully written. I loved how Rodolphus was crying. It humanized him in a way that only you could. This fic really moved me and is definately going on my favorites. You've done it again, Sly Severus. Thanks for the great read and congrats on being a great writer.
Author's Response: *huggles* Thanks so much. I\'m so glad to see you back!
This was actually even emotional to write. It was a very strange experience and it has made this story one of my favorites, as well. Thanks again, for the compliments.
And omg, thank you for dedicating this to me!!!! Ahhh, i feel so honored!!!! *huggles*
Author's Response: *smiles* Your welcome. I didn\'t think anyone else would appreciate it as much as you. :D
Summary: Moments after Sirius Black falls through the Veil, he meets someone he never knew existed who tells him something he doesn't quite believe...
I am Chaser921 writing for Gryffindor for the Myth and Magic Prompt
I loved this!! I especially like the line about Regulus becoming a hero at the end. And this is certainly an original fic! I have never read one quite like this. I'm very into mythology, so I enjoyed the theme of this one. I thought it was such a nice touch that Sirius didn't realize he was dead at first... I really liked that. Other than the plot, this story was very well-written! It had such a wonderful fluency. Your paragraphs and sentences blended very nicely! Great job! I'm putting this on my favorites!
Author's Response: Aw, thanks! I\'m glad you liked it so much! *blushes a lot.* I love mythology too; when one of the challenges was to incorporate mythology I almost squealed. I quite liked your story too, btw.
Summary: Long after a war ends the wounds remain. When forced to face something so horrific a part of a person’s very soul dies. People are left changed. Societies are left in shambles
During this time, people are prone to making bad choices. Horrible things are said and done because the bitter continue to fight. How can such a monstrous event ever truly be over? And how can those left behind truly regain their lives
Oh, that was such a sad chapter. I mean, its good she's getting cared for, but the fact that she always has to look down and stuff. How horrible. I hope Cassie won't hate her after she learns who she was before. Oh, I love this fic soooo much. Its amazing. Gotta R&R the next chappie!!!
Author's Response: See below :D
Ahh, I see Frank's got the old Gryffindor prejudice? Ah well, it was expected. I didn't think Frank's parents would have explained it the way Cassie's did. Neville probably even made it a bit worse than it actually was. I loved the bit about cheesecake. Tee hee. Cheesecake... Well, anyway, wonderful chapter as usual. But there's one nitpiick She belonged at Hogwarts, rather she liked it or not Well, I think that was the gist of it. It should be whether she liked it or not. All in all, lovely chapter and I'm looking forward to reading the rest!
Author's Response: Hehe, glad you liked the chapter. And, no, Neville wouldn\'t have explained things as Tonks ans Remus did. I\'m really glad your enjoying the story and thanks for the review.
Whether and rather, I do that all the time. I have no idea why. *shakes head at self*
Anyway, thanks so much for the review. I\'ll try to remember to fix that tomorrow. I\'m way too tired tonight.
