Hello, this is Dragontamer1. I have one story up right now, described below, although I'm not finished yet!
The Beast and The War (One Shot)
"A little story to whom it may concern- which is probably very few people, but it is an interesting (though exhausting to tell) story, indeed. I'll go against my better judgment and tell you about it anyways. This story is about The Sphinx Science War. (I hope you’ve heard of it, supposing they still teach a history of magic at Hogwarts) It is about how my immature little brother started the Sphinx Science War and how yours truly put an end to it."
This was submitted for A One-Shot Challenge, and is now just out there, so if I've grabbed your interest then please read and review it!
I am in the planning process of several stories right now; once I can chose one to really dedicate my time to and write it will hopefully show up here on these boards!

That was a great chapter! I love the letters and te Ron/Hermione! However I think that it is fairly obvious what is with Ron. Or I could be wrong, or you could be going for that. Other than that, It was a BRILLIANT chapter, and you are really keeping me hooked.
Summary: [Year 1: Complete] Harry's a Slytherin and friends with Draco Malfoy. How will his years at Hogwarts turn out, now that he's a Slytherin? Will he turn to the Dark Arts and be a follower of Voldemort? Or will he kill Voldemort, or die trying, after he learns of the prophecy? Will Harry's choices lead him down a different road? Follow and you will see..."The first step, my son, which one makes in the world, is the one on which depends the rest of our days." -Voltaire
More, More, More. *Goes hysterical* Keep writing. Don't stop
P.S~ I visited the lexicon and stil can't come up with any theories for G!
Author's Response: Read the next chapter and you\'ll be surprised...and maybe a little scared. Thanks!
Nice new chapter! I like how you're coming up with new twists with the story and breaking away from the events of the original book. And the writing is EXCELLENT!
Author's Response: Thank you for saying my writing is excellent!!! I\'m pleased you liked the chapter!!! Twists are what I try to do, so that you all find it interesting. I love reading twists, so it would only be fair if I wrote them!! ~Sara
Great story! I like the way the plot is going and how one choice changed it. It was a kind of short chapter, though.
Author's Response: sorry about the length. i hope you continue to read, so that you can further see the choices that Harry makes!!! Thank you!!! ~Sara
Nice! This chapter was really good.I'm liking this story a lot.
Author's Response: i\'m so glad u like it!!!!
Oooh, Mystery! This story just keeps getting better, doesn't it? I can tell your improving.
Author's Response: why, thank you!!! telling me i\'m improving is very nice!! thank you again!! ~Sara
Yay! I hope you keep mixing Harry's 'old' fiends in every once in a while like you did in this chapter.
Author's Response: don\'t worry i do...
Summary: Little is known of the ghosts which reside here within the walls of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. For some, their pasts have been entirely erased from memory, and all that remains is but a shadow of their former selves. We mortal beings know nothing of death, for it hides its secrets, only unearthing them as we pass beyond after our final moments, yet then, there are still some who fear what lies ahead once we are gone.
A book of death-day one-shots, put together in this manner because of the prologue. (Otherwise, it might be separate one-shots in a series.) This could be horror or angst, but I thought, as it isn't intentionally morbid, that historical would do best.
Superb! I really like the characterization in these stories. I'm going to add it to my favorites. The sad part is reading and knowing that the character will die at the end, (and so young, too) but I still enjoy it a lot.
Summary: [Year 2: Complete] Its Harry’s second year as a Slytherin, and the Chamber of Secrets has been opened. The Heir of Slytherin is out there somewhere, having students petrified left and right, and by the end of the year someone will die from Slytherin’s horrible beast. But this time, Harry's the one with Riddle's diary.
How will Harry’s years at Hogwarts turn out, now that he's a Slytherin? Will he turn to the Dark Arts and be a follower of Voldemort? Or will he kill Voldemort, or die trying, after he learns of the prophecy? Will Harry's choices lead him down a different road? Follow and you will see...
“What is a diary as a rule? A document useful to the person who keeps it, dull to the contemporary who reads it, invaluable to the student, centuries afterwards, who treasures it.” –Ellen Terry
I haven't beenale to read this story in a while, and I just read four chapters in a row! Only nine chapters left... Who is the next to be petrified? (and how many more petrifications are there?)
Author's Response: That\'s all right. I\'m glad you caught up though!! There are two more people to be Petrified...one of them is someone who wasn\'t Petrified in the books! You\'ll never guess who the Muggle-born is!! ~Sara
PLease update fast! Wonderful chapter, and I bet the next few chapters are as good. But if no one else can get in the chamber, hen Harry's stuck in this alone. Unless someone comes in at the same time as the Sorting Hat (I'm assuming with Fawkes?) I feel tortured by time, please update.
Author's Response: Well, you\'ll see whether he goes at it alone or with some help soon enough!!
I really enjoyed that chapter! Your writing just doesn't stop improving. After The beginning of the chapter, I'm getting a little wierded out y Lucius. There certainly is a dark side to the Malfoys. As if we didn't already know that. I can't wait until they Harry gets to Hogwarts. But I expect to enjoy the Burrow chapters, too.
Lastly, I get the feling that something is upo your sleeve in this book. It seems to have more mystery than the Last one.
Author's Response: Thank you so much!!! Yep, there\'s a dark side to the Malfoy\'s, especially Mr. Malfoy. There most definitely is something up my sleeve and a couple days after Harry arrives at Hogwarts, you\'ll find out!!! Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!! ~Sara
Very good chapter. It could have been longer, or perhaps I was reading too fast. It certainly does show light on the Malfoy's and what they beleive in. update soon!
Author's Response: Thank you!!! I think that chapter was about 6 pages on Word. Can\'t remember. Anyway, it does show a lot about Mr. Malfoy and Draco. Especially that there is more to both of them than most see -- Mr. Malfoy in a bad way, and Draco in a good way. ~Sara
44 chapters is a lot, obviously, which only means that there's more wonderful story to read.
As for Ron and Harry, they will have falling outs all the time, just like in the real books, I suspect.
Also, you mentioned something about Harry having a watch?
Author's Response: Yep, it\'s a lot. Well, thank you!!
Friends have fights all the time. But they get back to being friends eventually.
Harry has a watch, yes. He has a watch in the books, too. Thanks for the review! ~Sara
Oooh! I really enjoyed that chapter, and a nice ending, too.
Hmm... I may know who's going to die...
Oh, and you did some wonderful things with the setting at the beginning of the chapter. Also, I think that you should explore a bit with The Bloody Baron, like why he is so bloody.
That's all for now!
Author's Response: Thank you!! I want to know who you think it is. I wouldn\'t tell you if you were right or wrong, but I\'m curious. Hmm...
Why he\'s so bloody? lol. But I actually do want to add the Bloody Baron to the overall A Different Road Series, unfortunately I don\'t think he\'ll be in the rest of this particular story. ~Sara
Nice chapter! The way you tell it, Marcus Flint isn't all that different from Oliver Wood, just ruder. I liked the wole falling sequence with the Diary. I don't recall it being described like that in the book, nor the movie. The scene in the past wasn't different from the book and movie muuch though. The fight with Draco did seem rushed. I can't wait for the duel thing next chapter.
Author's Response: Thanks!! Well, I needed the part in the past to be the same to work with the story, but I didn\'t want to take it out completely. Someone else told me the fight seemed rushed; I didn\'t mean it to be. I hope the next chapter is up soon! I\'m going to add it now!! ~Sara
I liked the omniscient view. At first it felt a bit off, because it hasn't happened in this story before, but I got used to it. In the next chapter, I'd like to see the student reaction to what's going on, from the Slytherin point of view.
I'm happy to see the story advance, i hope it turns out o be a little interesting. I just wonder if the same people are going to be petrified?
Author's Response: Thank you!! I\'m glad you liked the change!
I\'m sorry but the same people will be Petrified because I don\'t know what other characters are Muggle-born, but there is one addition, and the person is a Slytherin!! Oooo! ~Sara
I really enjoyed that chapter.
Draco's a bit tempermental as a friend isn't he?
What's Harry going to say?
i'm not sure what the whole smart thing is leading up to... but you obviously do.
Author's Response: well, their smarts will help them a lot. and besides, i want him to be independent. i don\'t want him to depend on hermione like he did in the books. ~Sara
Just because the last book came out doesn't mean we'll stop reading your stories! We're better than that.
Nice chapter! Percy is just taking a beating in this book, physically and emotionally, isn't he? Draco's pureblood obsession is scaring me. I know Harry'll be out to stop the beast, but I don't know how keen Draco is gonna be to help him.
Author's Response: Thanks! I guess I was just being stupid then. I\'m really pleased you\'ll keep reading!!
Draco isn\'t going to help Harry...I guess you\'ll have to see what happens. Thanks again! ~Sara
I liked that chapter. It was very well written. I can’t wait to see what happens at the Manor, and eventually, The Burrow. (I can’t wait for Hogwarts, either, but I’ll get over it.) My only wonder is the significance of Fred and George’s experiments. I hope that scene was only there to bring up the whole Harry being a Slytherin thing. ‘Cause otherwise, I’m a bit scared as to why explosions in the Burrow is important. I don’t want the Burrow to explode.
Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked it! Harry will finally get to Hogwarts in chapter 11. I know, far from chapter 8, but a lot more goes on in the summer. lol!! No, the Burrow will not be blowing up!! The importance was, as you said, to bring up the fact that Harry\'s a Slytherin. Nothing else. Plus, I thought it was funny! Thank you so much!! ~Sara
Another fantastic chapter! The Malfoy’s were excellent in this chapter, and the end wasn’t cliché, but inspiring.
I can’t wait to see what you’ll do with Ron’s character in this one. After working with the Malfoys, the Weasleys should be easy for you, as long as there not too flat.
If we see a lot of Hermione in the next few chapters *hint* Than you should do some work with her character, too. In the first one, she seemed to be coming along a bit slower, but I know you can do magic with these characters.
Author's Response: ooo inspiring!! thanks!!! i actually wrote the next couple chapters too quickly, and the Weasley\'s did seem a little flat. Hermione was okay, but i want to add a few more fun and interesting things before submitting it to the queue. Thank you so much!!! that really means a lot!! ~Sara
