Bio:
I'm a truck driver who was introduced to Harry Potter by my daughter in 1999. The books are fantastic, the movies are some of the best made, and the fanfic is better than that I've read in Star Trek, Buffy, and even the Xena universes.

BTW, the Sorting Hat put me exactly where I belong, in Gryffindor.

I like how you think! Hermione's desire is a two-fer; for the three of them to be together and for Harry to have a normal life. Nice!

Author's Response: Thank you for your review! It seemed fitting that Hermione's desire would have a bit of complexity to it, since she's so darned smart.

Great peace! You picked up on the truth about Albus Dumbledore in the same way that I did: Gellert Grindlewald was the first person, male or female, that Albus could truly relate to as an equal. That's why his admiration could be termed "love." Albus never acted upon it for several reasons, primarily because the whole situation blew up in his face, leaving him with a dead sister to mourn for the rest of his life. Albus not only feared power, he also feared unreasoning passion after that disaster.

Albus also probably knew that Harry's great power to love was something that he could never equal given his tragic past. I think that is why only Harry could defeat Voldemort -- Albus lacked the ability to love freely and with all his heart. The one time he had tried, he had lost everything.

So, you're right. Albus "never did anything inappropriate." He didn't dare to release his heart. And that was, ultimately, worse than dying.

Author's Response: Dumbledore really is a bit tragic, which makes him a great character to write. It always seems to be the most tragic cases that make the best characters. Very flexable.

Wow! While I was tempted to nitpick over some wording choices, the story itself captures so much of the feelings of a mother and how the innocent love of a child changes all too often to negative feelings.

Author's Response: Thanks! Thatís what I was aiming for.

 

The Twinge by MagEd
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 73]

Summary: Some say to follow your heart, others think it best to follow your head. And what does Ginny Weasley believe? A short history of Ginny Weasley and how she learned to follow the twinge, from her first kiss to the day when Harry almost died. *one-shot*

I loved it! Although I'm a typical male who reasons his way through life, I've learned to listen to my gut. If something is making my stomach unhappy, it's almost always something very wrong that I haven't conciously noticed. So, I can identify with Ginny's experience... and you did a great job of blending it in with DH.

Author's Response: Thank you very much. A person\'s gut feeling is always important! :)

Diamonds of Glass by Gin_Drinka
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 10]

Summary: There are rules about who he can be. There are rules about who he can love. And there are rules about how much peole are really worth.



Severus Snape doesn't agree with the rules.





There might still be a little hope left to be had, because you can find diamonds in mounds of broken glass.

Your story was excellent! You caught Remus' fears perfectly -- he fears himself, he fears harming others, and he fears the loneliness. You've added so much depth to his character in these sketches. Please keep writing!

Author's Response: Thanks! Yeah, Remus was fun to write, intriguingly complex, but ever so quick to win sympathy. I was only worried I had put too much of myself into the character. If it worked, then maybe, at least for a while, I\'ve done something right.

 

Beauty for Ashes by Kerichi
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 24]

Summary:

He stared down at the drying pool of blood on the floor and thought with grim satisfaction, I am not so easy to kill.

Fantastic! I've always liked/hated Severus. After Harry, he's the best written character in the books. And I love the idea that he found a way to cheat death at Moldyshort's hands.

Author's Response: Thank you! I always loved his snarkiness while disliking the way he treated Harry, and wanted Severus to be a redeemable gothic hero. Instead of being flawed and doomed, I wanted him to be flawed and allowed to live!

 

Summary: Fred is dead.

But that's just the beginning! Because one of George's ears is up in heaven, and the other is down on earth...

Oh, the possibilities!

I liked it! The idea of a tree entering a battle like this is Tolkienesque (of course I mean that in the best way). You're going on my Favorite Authors list.

Author's Response: Aw, thank you! And I am a HUGE Lord of the Rings fan, so saying my work was Tolkienesque is a tremendous compliment. I\'m glad you liked it!

 

Summary: This is book two in the "Potter's Pentagon" trilogy. Read "Potter's Pentagon: The Five" first, myesss? Cool.

WARNING: This story contains French people, an internal monologue about a blue orange, adolescent facial hair, good old-fashioned snogging, superstitious truck drivers, a portrait who calls everyone "Mavis," a zoo break-in, some very strange clothes, romantic conflict galore, and Ron Weasley's caffeine addiction. And worst of all, Professor Zabini!

Hogwarts is hosting the Triwizard Tournament, and when one of the members of Potter's Pentagon is selected to represent the school, much excitement ensues. Simultaneously, elections are being held for Minister of Magic, and things are getting busy at the Ministry.

Not to mention the fact that Jordan's made a new Muggle friend without informing her of the itty-bitty fact that he's magical, Haley has found an enchanted diary of dubious origin, Ted's met a werewolf from Beauxbatons, and Emma... well, Emma's not having a good year.

And what exactly is Ivy up to, anyway?

Everyone has secrets. But in the end, the truth will have to come out.

Keep writing!

And, if you can spare a few minutes, take a look at my two stories. I'd like to hear your opinion of them.

Author's Response: Wow, thanks! And I am reee-lieved that you didn\'t guess... and that you thought it was more on the \'touching\' side of the fence than the \'cheesy\' one. I\'d love to check out your stories-- my internet\'s pretty sporadic at the mo, but I promise I\'ll get to it.

Summary: It's been two weeks since Fred's death and George is still refusing to leave his room. His family has become incredibly worried, and has had no luck attempting to coax him out of his room.


Will the Weasleys be able to convince George to come downstairs? Or will it take someone else to remind him that life is still worth living?

Wow! That was a lovely story about my favorite witch in the HP universe. Having lost a brother (thankfully, not a twin), I went through many of the feelings you described. Very well done, indeed.

Author's Response: I\'m so sorry for your loss. Writing about George was the most difficult part of this story. He and Luna are my favorite characters because they are always so funny, and it was really difficult to write a sad George. The end was expecially hard because I wanted to leave the impression that he was doing better at the end, but it kept ending up with him seeming happy-go-lucky again. I\'m glad you think I did a successful job. Thank you for reading!

WOW! That one hit home -- the depth of depression that drives you to hurting yourself. That's good, because I have a daughter who was close to doing that when a friend intervened and convinced her to ask for help. Well done!

Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked it! Self injury is something I have read about, and I have heard about, but I have never (thank g-d) tried it myself, so I am glad it felt real! Thanks for the review!

Curriculum Vitae by Hermione_Rocks
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 18]

Summary: Ever since the war ended, Theodore Nott has found little solace in anything, save for his Firewhiskey purchases. Due to happenings and circumstances, he runs into the most unlikely people and places, ones that may just be able to help him as he trundles along through life.

This is a story of pain, loss, regret, bitterness. This is a story of joy, laughter, forgiveness, hope. It's a story of second glances, second considerations, second chances. And first chances too. Curriculum Vitae is Latin for: The course of one’s life.

This story was the overall winner of the '07/'08 Winter Tales Challenge. It also took the 2009 QSQ award for Best Post-Hogwarts Chaptered story. I am as stunned as I am grateful. Thank you.

I especially enjoyed your story, especially the characterizations. I think you got Cho just right, someone who grew up a bit late because she had been stuck in "drama queen" mode too long as a teenager. Nott was good; the parallels between the DEs and the Nazis have been overdone, but you gave us an insight to those who sat on the sidelines and did nothing. Truly, that can be nearly as bad a crime, to have avoided caring about people and letting bad things happen. It requires such a lack of compassion...

So, thanks for a story that will, I hope, make people think about the opportunities they have each day to make a difference. Those who do step forward to help strangers, to lend a hand, to speak up for those who can't... they are angels.

Author's Response: Thank you so much. All of the characters in this story were new to me, I\'d never written them before, but I had fun toying around with all of them, and I\'m glad you enjoyed reading about them. And I hope the story makes people think too -- that is what any writer dreams of, creating something that will make a difference to even one individual. Anyway, thanks again for reviewing!
