I've sorta disappeared off the whole fanfiction scene, and I'm trying to get my brain to write something good...
Great Job! This has to be one of the only Harry/Ginny fics that I'm hooked on! I enjoy all the plot twists and your characterization of Ginny and the OC's. Nicely job so far. I'm wondering, how many chapters do you plan to do? And how far (as in time-wise) are you going to let the story go?
For all of you who wanted an update, I have a proposition. You may or may not like it, but it's all I can offer.
Check review challenge for the last chapter. details there!
James and Lily Potter were possibly the most famous parents in wizarding history. We know alot about their adult life, but what do we really know about their childhood? Even Harry never knew about the Drama, jealousy, danger, friendships, happiness, sadness, resentment,confusion and love that his parents went through as children. Here, their lives, from when the two of them were eleven to when they were brutally murdered at only 21, is recorded. Lily and James Potter were unsung heros. This is their story.
Nice! I was a bit confused when you started out with Lily's first year, and then had her liking James. I personally liked this chapter the best, becuase it seems a bit more canon, and it is nicley plotted. I'm wondering, will you have Lily hate James by at least the 5th year? Otherwise, maybe we could see a bit more of Lily's friends, and maaybe a bit more chracterization. it seems that they are a bit bland, and are just there to fill up the story.
Nice job though!
Author's Response: Thanks for your review. I'd just like to say that I've had a bad day so far, and if what i write sounds rude, please dont take it as that, Im not trying to be. I really really really wish that people would stop thinking that because almost everybody writes Lily as a fiery little bitch, does not mean that that is cannon. That, my friend, is copying everyone else so your story doesn't look bad, or just assuming that because the majority wrote it like that means that's how she was. How about we take a listen yto what JK Rowling had to say, shall we? She said (well, all of her characters said) That Lily was the kindest person at hogwarts and that she didn't hate James!! can you see what I'm writing. Im not taking this out on you, trust me, more like a note to everyone reading this who wants to write a review sayin that Lily was supposed to hate James from her first year. Also, I'm sorry that you think my OCs are bland, I certainly wasn't aiming for that. Thanks again.
Wow! Funny! I loved how you had the trio switch, and Hermione was perfect. I can't wait to see what'll happen next!
Author's Response: yeay! thankkieess for your review!!!
oooh! Please update! It's great so far!
Author's Response: Chapter 5 is in the que! You guys'll love this chappie!
Yea! An update! Great job on this chapter! Lily's thoughts are perfect! Except I don't like cliffhangers.....
Author's Response: Oh sorry, I'll try to do it less...except i just love leaving you all in suspense! Sigh. I'm so evil I scare myself sometimes. Lol.
I loved the ending line! Adding the little kids made the scene perfect! Great Job!
nice! I love the idea of harry potter with aim.. lol
Are you going to add more characters?
Author's Response: oh yes, many more. there are two whole stories so far...and the part that I posted last is the second part of Version I. Version II is also finished and ready to be posted, but I think I'm going to use that Voldie/Virus thingy in Version III, which isn't yet written!
Great Job! Really funny! I can't wait for another issue of Dear Dumbly! Do you think you could also have some of the teachers, some lesser known students, and ghosts write to Dumbledore? Wonderful Job so far! 10/10!
Author's Response: Thanks!! Yep, we'll be having some letters from teachers, one in the next chapter! We'll have one letter in particular from a lesser known student, but I don't think that will come until one of the later chapters!! Ooh, ghosts!! I didn't think of that!! I'll see what I can do!! Thank you!!
I loved this songfic! It blends so perfectly with the song, and all the flashbacks. It makes it sound more like a poem, sort of. I really liked it! Great Job!
Author's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review! I've never written a song fic so I was worried whether or not I could blend a story into a song...what a relief to know that I managed it!
The usual! I loved how you portrayed Lily's and James's relationship, rather than fighting so much like other people portray them. Good job on this chapter, and I can't wait to read the rest!
Nice job! This was an enjoyable read! I liked the part when Lavender was eating the apple. Maybe you could've put in some more Parvati/Apple time. Also, I think Ginny would've just said "...Harry" and not "...Harry Potter." Otherwise, great job!
Author's Response: Thank you, I'm glad you liked it.
Nice going so far! I'd like to see how this'll progress! I like how you've characterized Fred and George's character so far. Update ASAP!! =D
That was great! I loved how Lily played a prank against them! I wish this wasn't a one shot though, it has so much potential.....
Author's Response: Thank you, that's so sweet! I'm really grateful you took the time to read AND review this!
That last line just hurts your heart...
Beautifully written, and tremendously sad...
Author's Response: Thank you! You know, I think that\'s one of the nicest things I\'ve heard, about it hurting your heart, as that\'s really the effect I was going for - however cruel it sounds. Thanks for reviewing!
Wow! Great beginning chapter! The first part, already mentioned with the dash, was the only part with a little minor mistake.
Anyways, I liked your scene with Fred and George, along with Crookshanks. This is pretty good for your first fic! Just one little thing: you could've divided the chapter into two if you wanted to, ending right before the chess game. Otherwise, I enjoyed it. Can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! The scenes you mentioned were some of my favorites. It would be extremely easy to spread this story out over maybe 40 chapters, but then the poor readers have to wait. Besides, I like putting alot into one chapter...they're just longer that way. Thanks again for the great review!
Hi! Great story! I've only read a couple slash stories, and this is, by far, great! I love how you incorporate humor, and how all the OCs seem real! Can't wait for more!
Author's Response: Well, for me it\'s ver important to incorporate humor, especially if it\'s a long story like this one. Thanks for the review! Chapter 9 won\'t take long, I promise.
You know what is hurting me so much now? That the next chapter is waiting to be validated and I'm still at suspense! I love this fic, and I seriously can't wait till the next chapter!
I love the character of Nessa becuase she makes me laugh, along with Ariel. I loved the moment between Ariel and Bahir. Just pure yea!ness.
Gah.. I'm in more suspense than Ariel (I think...) Keep up the great worka nd can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Pure Yea!ness!! Lol, I love it. I\'m going to start using it. Yes, the next chapter is waiting to be validated, I\'m sure the mods we\'ll get to it tsoon. I\'m happy that you liked the fic and thanks for the review!
Wow! That was a great one-shot! Not only does it belong in the J/L section, it also belongs in the humor section too. Hilarious! I could imagine Lily doing something like that. Great Job!
Author's Response: Yeah, I thought that was very Lily. I'm glad you liked it! To be honest I also had a hard time placing it. But I finally concluded that placing it in Humor might be too presumptuos of me! I thought that most people would be put of by the absurdity of the whole plot! Thanks for the review! Seriah x
Great plot! I never would've thought about the Grey Lady in that way! I like how you incorporated Hogwarts' rules with her. Your last sentence is definitley a great moral (and end) to the story. Great job!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review and I\'m glad you enjoyed it!
This is wonderful! Except I can't wait till the next chapter! Keep up the great work!
