"Tell me one last thing," said Harry. "Is this real? Or has this been happening inside my head?"
"Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?"

That's the way I feel about fanfiction... Sigh. It's my favorite line of DH; I was so happy to hear it in the final movie.

Big, huge, gargantuan, colossal, magnanimous, gigantic, wonderful, squeeze-worthy, giant.... I've run out of adjectives....big thank you to babekitty_92 for the beautiful banner! I nearly was in tears when I saw it. I don't know why I was, because it's so simple, but I love it sooo much! Thank you! *squeeze*

So, I'm no longer in high school, which means my penname is rather outdated. Nevertheless, freshman year will always be a special time for me because that's when I started here at MNFF. ;D I now attend the American Academy of Art in downtown Chicago, and I major in illustration.

I love Harry Potter and decided in freshman year of high school (hence the penname) to start a story. I'm incredibly flattered that the story has been accepted the way it has, and it warms my heart to read the reviews. (And yes- I know that sounded chessy. :D) I also have an account at, under the penname: Io.sono.Emilia., on which I've posted this story also. So before you accuse me of stealing a story....

Read the stories; maybe you'll get something about me out of them.

Thanks to all of you for sticking around! Maybe one day in the future I'll start working on a brief epilogue, or even a few sequels and one-shots based on other characters. Life's been a bit hectic, but I'll return to it one day... I had fun while it lasted. :D Thanks again!

Summary: As Andrea Benning starts her fifth year at Hogwarts alongside The Trio, she has her own daily things to deal with, like a life-altering secret, studying, orchestrating Operation Sophie-Roderick Romance and a crush of her own. When one attends Hogwarts, one can hardly expect things to go as planned.

Fred and George Weasley are really only returning to Hogwarts for the priceless market research, but will there be time for other things as well?

As friendships and romances develop, the students at Hogwarts will also have to deal with the second rise of the evil Lord Voldemort and the terrible toad of a Defense professor - Umbridge.

Well, I am really interested in what is going on between Harry and Andrea. And I love the whole George/Andrea ship. Very cute. And I do wonder along with 'just bee'; the first break-up? There's gonna be more? Uh-oh.

Author's Response: I'll give you this much of a clue: if you read the parts of Order of the Phoenix that this story corresponds with, you'll notice...well. You'll notice something. That's all I'm saying about Harry and Andrea until the epilogue. George and Andrea make me very happy as well. Sigh :) Yes, you read right. The 'first' break-up. There WILL be more. Just who and when? That's the suspense...

The others are right...pretty cool developments. I love the kite bit, it makes me want to go kite flying- but I don't think a Chicago January is good for that...Anyway, I am really starting to wonder about this connection between Harry and Andrea. It seems like it might lead up to the discovery that Andrea is Harry's long-lost-sister or something of the sort, but it is interesting. I also like how you incorporate the scenes from the book into your story. Very creative!

Author's Response: I ADORE kite flying, which is why I was so keen to put it in here. And yes, just stay with me on the Harry-Andrea thing. I won't's a cliched idea, but I'm hoping to pull it off in a way that is bearable - that was definitely the appeal of picking up this story again. I started it when I was 14, and every aspect of it was cliche back then. The only thing that has stayed the same is Andrea's name (only her first name) and her connection to Harry. And it was written pre-OotP way back then. Thanks for the review.

Before I read this tomorrow morning...let me tell you taht I had to do a double take when I saw that email saying this had been updated. I was all ready to go to the next email, when I reread the name. I was surprised. But pleased! I'll have to read it in the morning...afternoon...though. :-)

Gosh! Not only are you a fantastic Mod, but you are a fantastic author as well! I love this story! I love the pairing, it was about time that the "Trouble Twins" found themselves girls...hehe Keep it up and thanks much for the great read!

Author's Response: "Fantastic mod..." this is me blushing sheepishly, but thanks for the compliment. I so believe that what the world needs is more Weasley Twins. All the time. You can never have enough Fred and George.

It definetly sad to see George go. I was have excepting him to just pop up randomly! The UFFC is great. I wonder what's up with that though, too. I bet Gred couldn't be original because he had to use that part of his brain for pranks and new products. Hehe. Hey, you're not a mod anymore are you? Darn, you were a good mod, and if you are still a mod, you're a good one. Hehe. Looking foward to the next chapter. I actually am starting to wonder what is this Lightning Bond. I can only think it's some connection between Andrea and Harry- something like they're brother and sister seperated at 'death'. Hehee.

Author's Response: There is something up with the UFFC. That will come later. The Lightning Bond is also about to be revealed - I\'ve got about two more chapters, maybe three, and then the epilogue. And I am still a mod, just not for J/L. I help in General and with modding on the forums. Thanks for the lovely review!


Bittersweet by Aebhel
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 117]

Summary: It's funny about wars. They drive people to do things we never would ordinarily--good and bad. Harry and I had only been dating for four months. He loved me--I know that and I knew it then--but if there hadn't been a war, he would have waited. I think he just wanted something to hold onto...for when it was all over.

Ron comes across Ginny's diary, four years after the war has ended.

That was really poignant. I am wondering about how Harry died though. Was he murdered or just "kicked the bucket"? Sorry. THat was a really good fic though, I think I might just put it down as a Favorite. THough, I think you should maybe move it from R/H and H/G to just H/G, because it is more Harry any Ginny then Ron and Hermione, but I guess it works anyway. Good job.

You do capture the feelings very well, and I am glad that they're not drawn out. You just gotta' love Sirius, don't you? So strong, and yet, so tender. I'm making him sound like a piece of chicken. Anyway, like the story, it's a fave!

Aight, true, Snape's confession fits in with canon, but I still think he is an evil, lying, two-faced, false, trickster....*breathes deep* Sorry there. Don't like Snape. I feel so bad for Lily, Sirius and James and the little "biker-hoodlum" that took Harry's place. I have a feeling that we are coming to the end or this story, and it was a pleasure to read it.

I don't know if this fic was actually as depressing as the thought of what is goign to happy now that Harry's dead...Voldemort wins. Evil is allowed to take over. Not good. That's the depressing bit. Oh, for the record, this is the first dark/angsty fic i've ever read just for you. Haha. Thanks for reviewing so adamently- nearly every chapter! Thank you!

Author's Response: I\'ll reply to this in a review for you. haha

Consequentially Yours by Nyruserra

Summary: Past Featured StoryIt's a rescue, really. At least, that's what Fred and George Weasley manage to convince him of. After all, Hermione is sure to be a target for revenge seeking Purebloods - what could any right-minded Wizard do but step in to help?

But with the shadow of Voldemort still hanging over a frightened community, Oliver is about to find out that the consequences of doing the right thing can get very out of hand!

I, too, just found this story on the favorites of one friend who mentioned it in an email. It's quite good, though I was a bit confused about the whole bit with Goyle Contracting (what a terrible word!) before Oliver. I know you were going for suspense, and that's all right, but I think you could explain that a bit more after Hermione finds out. Also, when Charlie mentions something about Weasleys being related to the Woods...that confused me a lot too. But hey, it's all good, as long as it works out in the end. I have a feeling that Oliver is starting to like 'Mione (I love how you added the Gaelic meaning in there!) and I think she is starting to like him. I thought the brooch was such a sweet idea! Darn you Hermione. Poor Oliver. Then again, poor Hermione, Having to marry someone without a choice. Oi. Great Job, and keep it up!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! It\'s amazing to know that someone enjoyed my work enough to go out of their way to recommend it - I can think of no greater compliment. I appreciate your comments on the confusion of the early chapters. I will probably re-write this someday, and I will definitely look at making the whole Goyle Contracting bit easier to understand after it\'s all over with. I\'m glad you enjoyed the Gaelic meaning of \'Mione - I just couldn\'t resist throwing it in, it was too cute :-)

I agree with the other two reviewers. HUH!?!?!?!? THat was confusing. If Sirius back? or is he a ghost. OR if this a dream? And where did Lily and James come from!?!?! Meep. Anyway, i think its remus and Tonks in the bedroom, and Harry was kissed by either Hermione or Ginny, for they were both nervous. It's still confusing though.
