ETA: Like Bilbo, I was There and Back Again (There being out in the non-fanfiction-world) a Writer's Tale filled with adventure, battles, and a return to the Shire of MNFF.

Casting Grouch by remus R us

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: What if, all the world's a stage, and the characters of HP fan fiction are actors? This is the story of what happened between 'gigs', when characters meet in the Great Hall to share their complaints about how they're portrayed. Dumbledore has been rooted out of retirement after 'dying', James has doubts about Harry's paternity, Remus rants, and Voldemort does a Gilderoy.

In short, mayhem ensues.

These are not Jo's sterling characters. This group of players has been forced to enact some of the most atrocious parts in fan fiction-dom, and they're all primed and ready for the casting grouch.

What brilliant reviewers you have! ^_~ The story richly deserves praise, and I'm so happy you've posted on this site too!

Author's Response: As always, you amaze me with your encouragement!

Mission Implausible by remus R us

Rated: 6th-7th Years •
Summary: A covert operation is launched to retrieve Voldemort from Muggledom. But what do you call an operation that involves the hormonal saviour of wizardkind, his adenoidal comic side-kick, and their thinking hat wannabe bimbette; a harmless (mostly) werewolf, his canine friend and their clumsy associate; a snivelly wizard and a known felon? Surely, Mission Implausible? A sequel to Casting Grouch.

Forget cricket...that's not Quidditch! At least no one has reviewed, which is what that person deserves-- to be ignored, and then banned from the site.

Keep your head up, and keep writing this story! ^_^

Ballad of the Marauders by remus R us

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: After the final war, one story held a fascination for everyone: a story that talked of love and hate, trust and betrayal, courage and cowardice, fulfilment and loss, victory and defeat, life and death – the story of the Marauders. And, wherever wizarding folk gathered, the Ballad of the Marauders was sung; sung as a reminder of times past, that had shaped their future.
Reviewer: Kerichi Signed
Date: 11/18/06 Title: Chapter 1: Introduction and Oration 1

I still think Harry's story will overshadow any other, lol, but if the true Marauder tale is told in the wizarding world, it will be fascinating. Nice start- funny to think of a poem having chapters, but I look forward to reading your take on them! ^_^

Author's Response: As I can\'t tell Harry\'s story as effectively as Jo, I leave it to her(Hee! Hee!). I chose the Marauders as there are a lot of undercurrents in that story. As for the chaptered poem, my muse hits me in installments! As always, thanks for your reviews and encouragement. I wouldn\'t be writing, but for it.

The things I do for my Godson by remus R us

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Set in GoF, this story is a light-hearted introspection by Sirius as he meets the trio in the cave above Hogsmeade. Involves discussion on chicken, rats, Madam Rosmerta, chicken, animagi, snogging, and I did mention chicken, didn’t I?

You should update your cat to General/Humor! I know you can only submit to one, but this, while Sirius, isn't a 'serious' ficlet, but more amusing and light hearted. ^_^

Author's Response: Thanks and true! While its easier to write, its difficult to understand the technicalities of posting!

Pardon me, but have we met before? by remus R us

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: There are no strangers in the world, only friends waiting to meet. What if our favourite werewolf and Auror had met long ago, but were unaware of it? What if their paths continued to cross throughout the years, each unaware of how their lives will become entwined? This story is a series of encounters between RL and NT, culminating in their first real introduction.

Pain Can Lead to Laughter by lily_writes

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: This one-shot was made as a sequel/follow up to Before They Died. It follows the tragic tale of the day that led to an innocent man to be falsely imprisoned for twelve long, hard years. This fic also offers an explanation as to why he was laughing when the Ministry picked him up.

I enjoyed your take on what happened. I think Peter would have been more 'Sirius, what are you doing here?' and don't think he was spiteful, just willing to sacrifice everyone else in order to live, but I absolutely agree "this is a cruel fate for having done nothing"!

Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked it! I guess it\'s just how I thought he would be, I dunno. I had to have him find a way to escape with the witnesses and stuff like that.

I love this story and your sense of humour! Poor Remus, the pranker pranked. :D Seems he should be the one given a little extra credit!

Think Pink by Angel Feathers

I feel so bad telling you to submit in the R/T cat now that I've seen the stern warning on the front page! I honestly thought it was submit to one cat so not to give two mods the same fic to read and then edit afterwards because of the Note on the editing page. Sigh. I've fixed mine, and wished the word would've come out before you had to fix yours. Again, my apologies!

Author's Response: Hey, no probs. I sorted it out so no worries! Thanks!

Cutting Down His Shadow by patelnotpatil

Rated: Professors •
Summary: Meera Rupali Chanduramani has had the media in her face since the day she was born, seeing as she is the daughter of the most feared wizard of the century. However, her values are not the same as her fathers and she wants the world to know. Follow her journey through Hogwarts - classes, Quidditch, romance - and see how she manages to break away from the image as "the princess of evil" - how she manages to cut down the shadow her father cast over her life.

Higher rating for some issues mentioned in later chapters.

I swear I have not abandoned this fic. It's hard to write because I have so much work to do in college, but I'm writing the chapter little by little as time goes on. I may not be able to upload it until after the hacker problems with MNFF are fixed, but know that this story is still alive and kicking. I am NOT leaving Meera. No way.
Love you all!

Yay for you using Fire Crab nail polish! ^_^

What made you decide to use 'real time' narration? Why make Meera Riddle's daughter, and do you really think Draco Malfoy would name his son Oedipus, much less shorten it to a Muggle-sounding Ed? I find it really interesting that you have Meera 11. Being a romance writer, I wonder if this is a friendship story or if you're going to show Meera growing up during the course of the fic and caught in a love triangle with James and Ed. Questions, questions, lol. :D

Author's Response: Yay for you coming up with Fire Crab nail polish so that I could use it in my story! Many thanks! :D I\'m more comfortable writing in the present tense, plus, I feel it helps my audience really relate to the characters and feel what Meera is feeling. As for Malfoy, well, Draco was a really harsh Greek lawmaker, right? So it sort of makes sense that he would name his son after a Greek king. And remember, Ed spent time in a Muggle juvenile deliquency centre. There\'s more coming to that story, but I guess I can tell you that\'s where his name got shortened...I mean, how many kids do you think can pronounce Oedipus? haha As for the romance, I was thinking about having some later, but I never thought of a James-Meera-Ed love triangle. Great idea though!!! Hmmm, I might have to use that one...;)

When the men left and the other diners had gone back to their conversations, Ginny sat shaking with anger while Hermione told Ron, "I'm proud of you for keeping your temper."

Dean said, "I expected you to beat them both to a pulp."

Ron looked embarrassed but pleased with their praise. "I would have...if we'd been in an alley where I could get away with it."

The Great White Bear by Skipper424

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Joseph Carlyle could never get the Patronus Charm to work quite right. He struggled with it through school and it nearly cost him a passing grade on his charms N.E.W.T., dashing his hopes of becoming an Auror. Despite the fact that there were a number of other candidates with more attractive resumes, despite having to work as a cook in a Muggle restaurant, and despite having to live with his wife’s parents when they learned she was pregnant, he never lost his passion for his dream career.

Will he ever succeed in obtaining the job he always wanted? Will it be everything he ever hoped? Will he be able to support his family? Or will the critical gap in his Defence Against the Dark Arts skills cost him dearly?

This story took first place in the June One-Shot Challenge – The Best Patronus Ever. I would really like to thank MissPurplePen and joybelle423 for all of their work and suggestions for improvement.
Reviewer: Kerichi Signed
Date: 09/20/09 Title: Chapter 1: The Great White Bear


I don’t read much HP original character centered fiction, but I liked your title and the mystery of how a person would have such a Patronus.


Joseph is a sympathetic character. He studies hard and has big dreams. You do an excellent job hooking the reader with worry while setting the scene for his disappointment. Sprout was delightfully in character and shrewdly used to reveal Joseph’s situation and character (he’s competing against students with higher marks, but he’d be atop the list if decisions were made on effort alone) and to state what struck me as the theme of the story: Given enough time, anything is possible.


In the second paragraph, I noticed that you’re telling when you could show to greater effect. What does “looking dejected” mean to you? Slumped shoulders, feet dragging, long face: whatever you “see” can be shown to let readers make inferences.


Also, when you italicize a character’s thoughts, you don’t need to say “he thought to himself.” The italics are doing that for you.


Joseph’s humanity, for lack of a better word, was expressed very nicely when It infuriated and hurt him when he laboured so assiduously to meet deadlines only to see his work go completely unnoticed. He has pride and a writer’s ego that would rather collect rubbish than work for the Prophet.


In the second scene, his inconsistent emotions seemed very true to life. He’s tried to brace himself, but it’s still a painful blow. He tries to find solace that the torturous wait is over, yet sends out his application knowing in the back of his mind he’ll always be waiting, he’ll never abandon his passion, no matter how he appears to move on. He’s realistic yet optimistic, and quite likeable.


I did wonder about Joseph’s background when I read Two torpedoes had just slammed into his hull. Did he get the expression from his Muggle father? Comparisons usually clarify, but this one muddied the story waters.


When Jessica says, “That’s my favourite!” the “she” in “she beamed” should be capitalized. Characters can only speak dialogue. They can’t beam it, even if they’re transporter room engineers on the USS Enterprise. :)


It was interesting to find out Joseph didn’t go back on his vow not to work for the Prophet, that his pride wouldn’t allow it, yet he could work as a short-order cook. His elation at receiving the letter and Jessica’s thoughts on what her husband endured for them was vivid and touching. The only thing lacking was an explanation of what Jessica had been doing the last four years. Did she work? If not, why not? Joseph’s pride, or a medical condition? I assume her parents are wizards but it isn’t stated, and until I read about Uncle John I wondered whether Joseph was an orphan or estranged from his family for them not to be mentioned. I think it would have had more impact if you’d mentioned Uncle John along with Harry Potter at the beginning (or if the character occurred to you when writing, to have gone back and edited him in afterward).


The scene with the Dementors was riveting, the explanation behind the Patronus moving. There was a Tiny Tim air to the whole thing, a subtle foreshadowing. If I’d been your beta, though, I would’ve gently demanded you edit His son’s eyes exploded to Aiden’s eyes grew huge with delight or sparkled with delight. You used “his son’s” two sentences prior, and “exploding” gives a cartoon air to what is a tender, pivotal moment. As a reader and fellow writer, I implore (since I am in no position to demand, :D) you to edit that one line before any other.


In the final scene, the image of the grass waving like his son’s hand was so poignant; I read that paragraph twice to enjoy the beauty fully.


The ending was bittersweet, in a satisfying way. Thank you for writing the story.

Oh, how he hated finishing his own sentences.

Very angsty, in a lovely way, that tightens the throat and brings a melancholy smile. No one could hate this, so I demand you change that to especially if you enjoyed it! :)

A Little Lighter Than Black by kritchen

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: From the ancient and noble house of Black to the obscurity of being Muggleborn, seventh year just promised to be another school year, although their last. Andromeda is testing her boundaries and the limits placed upon her. She's rebelling a bit from the ideals that she was brought up with. Ted is just living in the moment, still trying to decide what he wants to be. Fighting with habitual messiness and lack of organization, the cheerful, happy-go-lucky Hufflepuff soon finds himself in the midst of something he hadn't expected. Two unlikely characters, a spark of life, and the awkwardness of repeated encounters leads to more than they expected out of their seventh year.

I'm sorry for the long wait for the next chapter. It's finally finished. I graduated high school in 2010 and then entered college. It was quite a stressful time and quite the transition. I also lost the chapter once when my computer crashed. I had struggled with it for so long (writer's block) and when it was almost done, there it went into technological oblivion. I was so frustrated, I couldn't bring myself to try rewriting it until recently.
Reviewer: Kerichi Signed
Date: 04/08/08 Title: Chapter 6: Friends Against Family

I like the thought that Andromeda was proud of her name, the respect it earned, and not the ways the family earned it! I also like Ted making her grin!

Something I noticed (besides a missing direct address comma in Hello, Cissy :D) this chapter was Andromeda making descriptive comments about herself. Ted should be the one telling the reader she's got smooth skin. ;)

Author's Response: Lol. Awwwah, Kerichi, I missed you! Your comments mean so much to me, and thanks, I\'ll keep that in mind. :D Lol. I should look over my new chapters and check that over. :D Thanks again. :D

I was struck by how often she refers to Ted as 'the Hufflepuff' or his qualities as 'Hufflepuf' this or that. Andromeda's trying to maintain distance but then kisses his cheek. I think she's outsmarted herself! ^_~

Author's Response: Lol. You\'re the first to catch that, even before myself! :D
