Harry Potter is the best damn story ever written. There's no denying it.
I'm a senior in high school who's probably read the entire series combined over 100 times. I stumbled upon the fanfiction world shortly after HBP came out and wow, there's been no turning back. There's so much talent out there and we all owe it to JKR for allowing us to explore such a great world. I think, as fanfiction writers, we are obliged to write the best we can and IN THE SPIRIT OF THE BOOKS. i hate it when some authors take such a ridiculous angle to whatever storyline. JKR deserves all the respect in the world. Let's uphold that.
MuggleNet is the best. To all the authors on this site, i salute you for such great works. May Harry Potter live forever.
wow...if u first published the story before HBP came out, then thats really crazy that your first chapter is so similar to what happened in the book. getting advance hints from JKR? lol. great writing. keep it up.
wonderful. I think what makes a great fan fiction is that it reminds the reader of JKR. We owe this all to her and our stories must respect her brilliance. your story definetely does that. i wonder after you're done with this story would you consider writing your own book 7? it would be excellent i have no doubt. also, although this is a romance fic are you going to include any of Harry's dealings with the war/voldemort. it seems that in this yr nothing has really gone on. we havent even seen dumbledore. just a suggestion. keep up the excellent work. dont even rush to get a chapter done. id rather read good work then have it up in less time. Shameless plug: if u have time read my story too. then again if u dont, i understand. senior yr is tough. college apps are all i think about (except HP of course!)
good story so far...i just got done reading all 13 chapters. your're a great writer but i must say...i often found the characters a bit OoC. Harry and Bill for example. Other than that, i like the balancing of the Malfoy and Ginny storylines. keep it up. also, doesnt pettigrew still owe something to harry for saving his life in PoA? are u going to incorporate that in any way? cant wait for the next chapter.
stuff like this is great for any H/G fan. bit of a guilty pleasure. love your "missing moments" series.
man...good suspense at the ending. dont leave us hanging.
nooooooooooooooooo. well at least the update will be amazing...i hope. lol. of course it will be! happy holidays! ill be celebrating new year's with the end of college applications and your story.
Author's Response: Lol! Thanks JF, I'm certainly working on making it the best thus far. Happy Holidays to you as well and best of luck on your apps!
man, reading that chapter plucked my heartstrings. taking a page from my story, eh? wonderful stuff. im sure youll reveal more mysteries soon. and again sorry for reviewing so late!
daaaaaaaaaaaaaamn...u r one talented writer. not much else to say. i feel terrible saying that i'm glad it was padma i thought neville or luna would be the one to go. im awaitng the final showdown with glee although how many horcruxes has harry destroyed at this point. all of them except his scar? update soon please. also is "levicorpus" a nonverbal spell?
Author's Response: Thanks so much, jezzleffezzle :) Yeah, I couldn't put out a major character death because, actually, I'm saving it for the coming chapter. *wink*
Here's Harry's Horcrux checklist: 1)Slytherin's ring: check, 2)Tom Riddle's Diary: check, 3)Nagini: check, 4)Hufflepuff's Cup: check, 5)R.A.B's locket: check, 6)Harry!Horcrux: not yet, 7)Voldemort himself: obviously not yet. 5 down, 2 to go. Speaking of glee, you have no idea how excited I am to post that chapter!
*isnt "levicorpus" a nonverbal spell? sorry id this is annoying...i have a weird memory for random facts
Author's Response: Hmmm... I'm pretty sure that a non-verbal "Levicorpus" falls under the same category as other spells - you have to think the word in your head for it to work non-verbally. Therefore, you should logically also be able to execute it out loud. I wanted Harry to yell it because it's the only way he could manifest his anger at that moment - he feels responsible for what happens to the DA, but if he loses his cool, everyone will suffer for it, you know?
ugh....december 25!?....well..at least it will be a nice christmas present. cheers!
ugh....december 25!?....well..at least it will be a nice christmas present. cheers!
Author's Response: *giggles* Wrapped in a red bow from me to you. Here's a tidbit to keep you going until then:
Chapter 9 is called "Debts Repaid". Summary: "He heard Dumbledore's voice in his head: 'When one wizard saves another wizard's life, it creates a certain bond between them...'"
aha! my prediction was right. go snape by the way. but....wow. just wow. no wonder you took your time writing this one and it was worth it. its fantastic how you can keep on top of all these different plotlines so well. please dont let the next chapter be the last one! i know harry will find someway to survive. and if he doesnt then im sure ull make his death sensible somehow. again, brilliant. its amazing how i get completely drawn back into your stories every time you update. (btw ill eagerly awaiting the fanart! yay.) keep it up.
Author's Response: Hehehe... are you sure you don't practice divination, Jeff? I'm really glad this chapter didn't disappoint - it was a doozy, and that's an understatement! As for Harry's survival... Nope. Can't go there. You'll just have to wait and see. ;) As always, thanks so much for sharing your thoughts. They make my day! (ps: your fanart's comin'! I'm getting out a commission this weekend, so you can expect it sometime early/mid-march :).)
there are no links on ur artwork gallery site
Author's Response: I'm so sorry - I should have been a little more specific. The site is almost done and will be operational by Tuesday (11/8/05). I'm still making the thumbnails and whatnot - almost there!
pettigrew!!!!??? argh...now u have me even more impatient. man, i really am a dork.
Author's Response: Lol - you're not a dork, you're just enthusiastic (at least that's *my* excuse ;)), which I find ridiculously flattering and endearing, so thanks again for being so excited about my story! Oh, and I did say debts. As in plural. Let's not jump to conclusions - that's my job ;).
when i saw that this chapter was like 6000 words long i was so excited because that meant more to read! but damn! it went by so fast it felt like 1000. i dont have much to say because my praise you've heard all before. just...wow. i love how you take it all so seriouslywith planning and research...we as writers must do jkr justice and you do that completely. chapter ten should be a doozy. thanx for giving me soomething to look forward after a night a hard work. (i'm reading this at 3:00 AM after just finishing a project) cheers! theory: wromtail's not after lupin, he's going to save harry and co. and kill greyback, thus repaying his debt.
Author's Response: So glad I could give you a little entertainment after a long day's work :). Plotting out this stuff has been loads of fun; beyond having a good time writing it, you wind up with a huge appreciation for the sheer scope of JKR's world. Anyway, thanks again! (Interesting theory by the way... *wink*)
since i just finished reading all first six chapter this is a review for all of them. WOW. i think what makes any fanfiction author great is that they stay true to JKR's style and above all else, THE STORY. you definetely do that. you have a great ability to write characters. i think you are the best writer of snape and voldemort dialogue i have seen yet and ive read a lot of stories. they are immensely difficult, snape in particular, to write and u do a superb job. also, great description of action. keep it up. excellent incorporation of the DA btw. Shameless Plud: once u have time, please read/review my story. it's a bit sad like ur one-shot. Thanks so much.
lol. i just noticed our stories are next to each other's
great transition chapter. excellent as always but i have only one quarrel. You wrote:
“The Dark Lord wants me,” concluded Harry. “You’ll all be targets for murder as soon as the Death Eaters find out you’re on my side.”
Harry would never call Voldemort the "Dark Lord" because only Death Eaters do that. He just always calls him Voldemort. Maybe you have a reason that he calls him "the Dark Lord" this time but i think you should change it b/c it is OOC.
Other than that, BLOODY BRILLIANT. Keep writing for all our sakes; we can't get enough.
Author's Response: Good point, you've got there. It's so easy to get jumbled on these dialogue points when so there are so many characters to keep track of - I must have crossed Harry with Snape there for a second ;). Anyway, I'm on it! (And thanks so much for reviewing!)
man that was like the cutest story ever. very well written, great humor, and character. i love how the old Ginny and Harry act, exactly the way i picture them. u have great talent. keep it up and i can't wait to see ur next stories. 12/10.
Shameless plug: read my story too! (if u have time) thanks!
Author's Response: It's all about marketing, Jeff! (If you don't believe me, check out Dan Radcliff's schedule the past couple of weeks.) Thanks for the support!
very well done. like others have said, you take an extra step and add in that dimension of harry/hermione although we all knows it actually ron/hermione. you painted the realtionship very well. i did think it was kinda fluffy tho. cant wait to read the next chapters.
