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.

How to Hold Sway by lucilla_pauie

Rated: 6th-7th Years •
Summary: What if Hermione was in Slytherin? Would things have changed?

I don’t think so.

She would be a Slytherin Princess, still as golden, only more cunning and less conventional.

In this story, let her teach you in gaining influence over the very people who crave it.

LucillaJoanna of Hufflepuff is here playing Lachesis for the May One-Shot Challenge...

...And won Second Place!

You nailed this one! Hermione was both in character AND very, very Slytherin. I loved it!

Author's Response: yay! i\'m glad, ron! thank you!

To Strike With a Vengeance by Roommate of the Quillster

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: The first time Sirius broke into the castle wasn't the easy time. Not even close...

Written for joybelle423 as an assignment in Transfiguration, Spring of '07.

Good story, but you need to work on capitalization, such as with the Whomping Willow and the Fat Lady.

A Mother's Love by GryffindorGoddess

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: When a Dementor threatens one of her friends, Luna is compelled to produce her Patronus in defense. Guiding her through the daunting task is the good advice, mark of faith, and eternal love that only a mother could provide.

Submitted for the June One-Shot Challenge by Gigi of Ravenclaw.

Wow! I think you really got into Luna's heart & soul in a way that a writer should. Great piece.

Author's Response: Thank you, Trucker! A Patronus piece really allows for that inner glimpse of characters since you get to see the happy memory. I had a lot of fun writing Luna so I\'m glad you liked reading my story. Thank you again! ~GG

Swallow Your Pride by KASK

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: I'm not really sure how or when it happened. I'd say somewhere between when he saved my life (and didn't even mention it!) and our late-night conversation. Or maybe in third year, but I just repressed it. No matter when it happened, something clicked with James Potter, and I felt like a fool. Especially when I learned that he had a girlfriend. Hopefully with stories of a nude Petunia and my charm, he'll see the light.

This will be six chapters.

Great story! A wording error though... you had Dumbledore say "I wanted to commemorate you two," when you probably meant "commend you two." To commemorate someone requires a public ceremony.

Author's Response: Thank you, I'll fix that!

Taxicab Conversations by cto10121

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: James Potter is about to give up his pursuit of his six-year crush, Lily Evans. But will he change his mind after an enlightening conversation with an understanding taxicab driver? One-shot, R&R!!


“Have you ever fallen in love?” James asked hesitantly.


“Have you ever loved her with all your heart and soul?”


“Have they never requited your love?”


“Have you ever thought of giving them up?”

“Yep. Did it too. Was without a doubt the worse mistake I’ve made in me bloody life.”

Reviewer: Trucker Signed
Date: 08/09/07 Title: Chapter 1: Taxicab Conversations

Don't be harsh? If I were harsh I'd be a prize prat because you wrote a great little story! The only criticism I'd have is with the sentence "…And that’s the last time I’ve ever saw the bloke again." I think you meant to say either "…And that’s the last time I ever saw the bloke." or "…And I never saw the bloke again." Your sentence seems to be midway between them and therefore well garbled.

Author's Response: I caught the mistake, and I showed it to my dad, but he said that I didn\'t need to change it, because that was the way people talked, in the present tense when they are telling a story. However, I need to delete that \"I\'ve\" and replace it with \"I\". Thanks for catching the mistake!

Savoring Patience by Rhetor

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: Harry and Ginny realize they have time.
Reviewer: Trucker Signed
Date: 08/21/07 Title: Chapter 1: Savoring Patience

"Nor do I necessarily intend this story as recommendation of pre-marital abstinence." I can't believe anyone could write such a sentence when pre-marital sex has led to far more heartbreak, diseases, and personal disasters than you can imagine. Never be afraid to speak up for simple, loving morality, for patience, and for doing the right thing at the right time.

Author's Response: Hi, Ron. Thanks for reading.

I think the topic is a complicated one, and that there are persuasive arguments on both sides. My Author\'s Note is simply trying to clarify the purpose of the story. The story is supposed to show how delicious patience and anticpation can be all by themselves. Certainly this could be a reason for abstinence, but it obviously isn\'t the reason to which you\'re referring. In any case, if I really wanted to prescribe (or proscribe) behavior, I\'d\'ve written the story quite differently than I did. Thanks again.


The Flying Lesson by Hypatia

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: The Dark Lord pays Professor Snape a late night visit, with the intention of teaching Snape to fly.

Nominated for the 2007 Quicksilver Quills Best Humor Story!
Reviewer: Trucker Signed
Date: 09/02/07 Title: Chapter 1: The Flying Lesson

Like many of my dreams, your story made no sense at all until the end when the pieces fell together and left me smiling and laughing with Harry. Loved it!!!

Author's Response: I wish my dreams would make sense at the end. I had one where Voldy was trying to steal the Magic Wishing Fork (which is a fork that grants wishes to whoever holds it) from me... Er.. Back to topic... I\'m glad you enjoyed The Flying Lesson, thanks for reviewing!

Shadows of Hope by Hermione_Rocks

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: The war ended several years ago, but Draco is still struggling to come to terms with what has happened. His wife sends him out with their son in the hopes that he can move beyond his past. DH Spoilers.

Originally written for the Slytherin In-House Banner Challenge. This story took first place. :)
Reviewer: Trucker Signed
Date: 08/21/07 Title: Chapter 1: Shadows of Hope

Interesting -- now that Draco is no longer so full of himself he has room in his heart for love -- and a child to fill it. Good post-DH work!

Author's Response: Glad you liked, thanks for reviewing!

Mischief Never Managed by HellFromPeeves

Rated: 6th-7th Years •
Summary: Mai loves Fred, and Fred loves Mai. They've been dating since their fifth year at Hogwarts, and Mai's been living and working with Fred and George at Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes since she graduated. So what happens to Mai (and George), leading up to, during, and after the battle at Hogwarts? And with the surprises that are in store for everyone along the way, life's going to be anything but easy.

Chapter 15 is up! Huzzah!

Reviewer: Trucker Signed
Date: 07/02/08 Title: Chapter 12: Unexpected Company

My favorite fanfics with a dead Weasley have included a common theme: Percy the Prat dies, someimes heroically, once as a spy for the Order. The only exceptions have been like yours--picking up the pieces after the DH disaster. A world without Gred & Forge is much darker than I like.

Author's Response: I agree. Fred and George both should have been there to cheer people up after they lost loved ones. I think the world would have been a much happier place that way. *sigh*

Wonders of the World by FullofLife

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: The innocence of childhood, the love in friendship. Lily finds Severus alone one night and tries to find out what is bothering him. One-Shot Song-Fic to Carrie Underwood's version of "I'll Stand by You".
Reviewer: Trucker Signed
Date: 10/01/07 Title: Chapter 1: Wonders of the World

I wish that "simple rule of life" were true. As a father, I've had to watch my daughters learn that best friends are all too willing to abandon friends when puberty hits and boys are suddenly the most fascinating thing in their pathetic little lives.

Author's Response: I wish it were true to - and I know what you mean. I\'ve experienced it personally so maybe this fic is just me wishing people didn\'t change. :) Thanks for reviewing!

Dursleys, Meet The Wizarding World by Ghoul In Pajamas

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: The Dursleys have left Privet Drive and are in hiding with Hestia Jones and Dedalus Diggle. Hestia and Mr. Dursley are constantly fighting, Petunia is avoiding the wizards at all costs, and Dedalus is trying to make them all the best of friends.

My only complaint is that you're taking time off from writing this excellent story to live a life. Shame on you! ;-)

Author's Response: lol!

Date: 08/01/09 Title: Chapter 9: The Wall of Questions

That was an interesting recap of Harry & Neville's histories, from the perspective of an interested outsider. It was well done, complete with a few missteps and confusions which an interloper would likely make.

So, who was the 2nd non-Muggle? Right!

Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you thought it was realistic!

Date: 01/27/08 Title: Chapter 5: Death Eaters, Weasels, and Rumours, Oh my!

I think you've tackled one of the major missing pieces of DH and are doing a great job of it! I especially love the disagreements over what happened with the Stone. This story is certainly going on my Favorites list.

Author's Response: Thanks!

Multum In Parvo by Hermione_Rocks

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: Multum In Parvo is Latin for: Much in little (small but signifigant).

Bellatrix Lestrange goes on the next great adventure, meeting someone she never expected to see again along the way.

This story took second place in the Autumn Challenge, The Next Great Adventure!
Reviewer: Trucker Signed
Date: 10/14/07 Title: Chapter 1: Multum In Parvo

As Glinda asks in "Wicked": Are people born Wicked? Or do they have Wickedness thrust upon them?

We know so very little about Bella, how she became the demented psychopath who killed her own niece. Perhaps you're right, perhaps she still had a few shards of humanity left.

In any case, well done!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! And as much as I do still hate her, I do think Bellatrix still retains some pieces of humanity. Actually, I was originally going to end this story by sending her to her own personal hell -- no joke. But as I started writing it, I realized that that wasn\'t where I wanted to go. Anywho, thanks for the review. And *squee* for quoting Wicked! :D

Punishment by nickynackyneevy38

Rated: 6th-7th Years •
Summary: "Crucio!"

In the mists of the raging war, Neville has been captured by Bellatrix Lestrange, the woman who single-handedly destroyed his family with childish glee. However, unknown to Bellatrix, Neville has concocted a plan in order to stop Voldemort forever; a plan which will require all of his Gryffindor courage to complete.

Wow! You did a great job with characterizations -- and had a great ending for an angsty piece.

Author's Response: aw thanks! i wrote this in the summer before the 7th book came out- i just love the character of bellatrix, shes fab to write! thanks for the review!

The Letter by Cassandras Cross

Rated: 6th-7th Years • Past Featured Story
Summary: DH SPOILERS! Harry is so consumed with his career as an Auror that he loses touch with Ginny and their children until a letter arrives to help him remember what really matters. But is something sinister waiting out there to take it all away? An escape from Azkaban, the first in twenty years, stirs up Harry's worst fears from the past as those he loves are threatened.

Romance, mystery, and drama combine to make this a story you won't soon forget! Set one year before DH epilogue. Completely canon compliant. All reviews receive responses.

THE EPILOGUE IS UP! I don't know whether to laugh or cry as this story comes to an end, and Harry finally figures out where it's really at. (Thanks again to the amazing mods for your rapid-fire response!)

Let me tell you what your story has accomplished so far: it's kept me glued to this computer for 2 straight hours! After I have my dinner, I'll be back to finish reading it. I think the word I'm looking for is "spellbinding!"

Author's Response: Well, your comments are exactly what I want to hear, so of course I\'m pleased. I\'m glad you enjoyed it.

Reviewer: Trucker Signed

You certainly have a gift for fiction. I hope if you ever publish anything you'll let us know here so we can buy and enjoy it!

Author's Response: I have actually published quite a lot of non-fiction, including a book, but it\'s on a specialized subject, so I doubt you\'d be interested. I am, however, hoping to break into the fiction market, so when and if that happens, I\'ll keep your offer in mind. Thank you so much!

Reviewer: Trucker Signed

Very well done, with a good balance of actions, exposition, emotions... in short, a fine piece of writing.

Author's Response: Thanks very much. My intention was to take the characters Jo had already crafted so beautifully and give them kind of an \"aging potion\" to make everything appropriate to the time I\'m writing about. Hope you keep reading!
