As I Lay In Your Arms recently got deleted when they rejected the second chapter, but it's back up now and i'm about to submit the second chapter now it's been sent to a BETA, so it shouldn't be rejected! Yay!
This is my wonderful banner for As I Lay In Your Arms, made by the brilliant hello251025:
Summary: Harry returns to Hogwarts, still saddened by Sirius' death earlier in the year. As the school year progresses, he slowly finds happiness again when he connects with Ginny and gives her a special gift at Christmas. But in the meantime, Lord Voldemort grows more desperate, and he will stop at nothing to destroy his greatest enemy.
wow i love this chapter, so cool with the food fight, a really original idea, not read this in any other fan fics, just goin off to read the other chapters now, wooo!
Author's Response: Finally! I really liked that food fight scene too, but until now that chapter had the fewest reviews! Go figure :-\. I hope you like the rest of the story!
Summary: Post Hogwarts: Ron and Harry are sent to America for Auror training. Ron spends his last night in England with Hermione, and after returning two years later, he finds Hermione with a fifteen-month-old baby ...
i loved this chapter! i love this story to! i love how u brought viktor into it (and nice accent might i add) and this story is only bad because of the complete b*itch that is miranda! i honest to god hate people like that, and i congragulate u on making her sound so believable. u rock!
Summary: It’s Harry’s sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and once again there is a new Defence Against the Dark Arts Teacher, and Snape likes her almost as much as he likes The Boy Who Lived, but why is the new professor so interested in Harry? What dark secrets is she hiding? Is Harry the only survivor of Lord Voldemort’s wrath? Will things ever be simple for our beloved Trio? It’s going to be another interesting year for Harry and his friends, and he’s going to realise that he might not be as alone as he thought and in more ways than one..
This story is newly edited as of 25/3/2009!!
The sequel to this fic has been posted, it is titled Harry Potter and the Unspeakable Power. The spin off stories One Life Owed and The Night That Started It All are also available.
This was written in the aftermath of OOTP. Events of HBP and DH not included.
hey, im realy new to this and this is the first review i've posted, so u'll have to bear with me! i started reading a few fan fictions back in september, and to be honest most of them were rubbish, but then i got on to yours, i liked the sound of it in the summary, and i got hooked on it, i read through all the chapters that were posted in the time, i think it was up to the one about christmas, and i really wanted to know what happened i found it so good. because yours is from the perspective of harry, and you stick to the style that JK Rowling writes in, it almost felt like it was a real Harry Potter book. I remembered about the site when looking through my favourites yesterday, and i was over the moon when i saw that the story was actually completed! I read it all again right to the end, i couldn't stop reading, and ended up staying up till half past 1, just reading ur story, like a book you can't put down, or in this case a computer u just can't shut off! I just thought i'd let you know that i thought your story was ace, although i wasn't too keen on the bits about the importance of family, they could get a bit soppy at times, although that's probablly just me, most people love that kind of stuff. I dunno what happens now, if you really want to reply feel free, i just thought i'd be kind and let you know how ace it really was! P.S. i wish i could characterise like you. you made Ellie seem like a true Harry Potter character and wove her into the story line perfectly, thanks for curing my boredem! xxx
oo another great chapter, really liked it. and you're author's note at the end has really got me thinking...hmmm...i can sense a bit of drama coming up! :P oo i do love a bit of emotional drama! people getting together is always so much better after they've had an argument! can't wait for the next chapter! :)
brilliant! i loved it! very funny too, with the whole teasing thing, just what two people would do if they liked each other, but pretended they were just mates lol. very well done, and very well written, can't wait for you to write more! please do :D
how could people say they weren't going to read this story?!? a bit of drama is what every romance needs!! this story is awesome, and the introduction of that b*itch child Phimie is what stirs it up a bit and gives it a bit more excitement and shockingness! Awesome story and i can't wait for the next update!
i love this story! i love the way ginny died her hair black, its just so shocking and original, n i admire the fact u had the guts to do it, n i loved the whole "Ginny Potter" thing, that was ace! ron rules! even if he is dense! lol update asap pleeeeaaase! 10/10!
Author's Response: thanks so so so much! I'm so happy that you appreciate the whole hair dye thing...Im so glad that you liked this chapter!
oo intriguing, wouldn't you say?! amazing i have to say, can't believe he punched her! (based on assumption that it was her fiance that punched her of course, my assumptions are usually right anywho, so i'm sticking with that!) i especially liked the description of ginny when harry was looking at her, and it was only a lil thing but i want to know what harry whispered in ginny's ear that made her giggle, another thing that intruiged me *raises eyebrow in suspicious interrogating way* can't wait for the next, and most likely brilliant, chapter! beckz4ron
p.s. i think i'm slightly hyper... sorry :S hehe
Author's Response: yes very intriguing......and yes the qustion is did Ginny get punched? is she really the type to let herself get punched? hmmm......
Summary: Post OotP:
His vision blurred by blood and the lack of glasses he willed himself to his desk grabbing for his quill, ink, and parchment. Unable to stand, he slumped back down to the floor. Hands shaking wildly, he managed to write one word.
Amazing chapter! Nice and long too, just what i like to see! Definitely worth the wait too! I love the way you went back to the beginning at the end too, with the same scenario of Harry getting into bed, that was really good. you're an excellent writer, and the level of detail you go into is just fantastic, nothing seems to rushed when you're reading it either. Well done, and i look forward to the next chapter!
Author's Response: The longest one! I didn't think I had it in me! Thanks so much for your review, sometimes I feel like I'm jumping all over the place and that I am rushing things. Hopefully, you won't have to wait as long for the next chapter. Hope to hear from you again, Beckz! ~Patrony :)
Summary: Year six begins in the_bartender's crazy concoction that is the life of Harry Potter. Add one part Harry, two parts prophecy, a mixture of Ron and Hermione, a dash of Ginny, a splash of Dumbledore (and garnish with a certain new knightly character to add a little mystery!)...
Pour over the ice in Lord Voldemort's heart and voila!
You've got yourself a Power of the Prophecy Cocktail, sure to mess you up, spin you around, make you question your motives and turn your wizarding world up-side down.
WOW i love this chapter! cnt wait to see ginny's reaction! n i love the way hermione just became all lawyer like, lol
Author's Response: "Legally Brunette"- that's our Hermy. :-)
awww one of the best wedding chapters i've read! especially since it was form the POV of the 'cat and the bee'. i liked the end scene between dumbledore and mcgongall really good too, a nice addition if i do say so myself! altho two old people...night caps and what not... *shudders* lol! can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Hehehe- I love the cat and bee. I think old people are cute- as long as they're not snogging in front of me (but I feel the same way about young people, too) Next chap is up!
woah ace chapter!!! especially loved the howlers - very funny! am especially wondering what the book Ginny put into her school bag was, and the cards that Dumbledore gave them...hmm....i hope that'll explain itself in future chapters. and oooh percy calling voldermort the Dark Lord, there's sumthing going on there, i can tell, aren't i observant :D go me! lol anywho, great chapter! update as soon as u can! 10/10
Author's Response: Ace huh? Do you play volleyball or cards? :-) Oooh---- the book and the card- you noticed something that will be VERY important. 20 house points to you! And yes, you ARE very observant. The Queen of this review-answering session. Kudos to you!
wooah! ace chapter!! ron lost??? *weeps* i wanted him to win so much! lol nah wel, it was stil good the way u wrote it! and draco actually toasting them?? *gasp* lol. reeally good chapter though, i loved the bit at the beginning when ron was trying to get harry up, n the whole "i've beaten myself 3 times already!" that was genius! 10/10
Author's Response: i didn't realize until you wrote it "I've beaten myself 3 times already" that it COULD be taken out of context quite nastily.... LMFAO. LOL! Thanks for reading!
aaah u never cease to amaze me! that was such a brill idea! i loved it sooooo much! and what a great way for harry to propose as well! update soon! this story rocks!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'm glad u approve- it's hard to be original AND 'good' when there's so many other proposals out there in the FFic world! THanks again!
awww that was so sweet! the exact opposite of what people usually write too. usually wizard weddings in fan fictions are massive affairs and take many days (and chapters) so this was more original. i really loved it, and those dress robes of Ginny's sounded gorgeous too. Well done on a magnificent chapter, and i look forward to reading the next one!
Author's Response: They take many days?!?!? Seriously-- I'm maid of honor in my best friend's wedding and I think that if I knew it was going to take several DAYS I might not have agreed to do it! I loved the robes, too!!! :-)
Summary: It’s the summer after the battle at the Ministry of Magic and Harry has returned to Privet Drive, where he awaits the time when he can rejoin his friends. A certain redhead has begun to occupy his mind and awaken emotions he never knew he had. As he continues to mourn the loss of his godfather, Harry slowly begins to heal and may have discovered a way to communicate with Sirius. Can it be too good to be true? Takes place directly following OOTP. Primarily a H/G romance, with some R/Hr as well. Rated R for adult content in future chapters.
LOVING this story!! u HAVE to write more!! and u HAVE to update as often as u possibly can!! i love the whole harry/ginny thing, i think u've set it up really well, n gone about it in just the right way! keep em comin!
Author's Response: Thank you! Don't worry, more is being written. I can't post as often as I'd like because of other obligations, but I'm trying my best. Thank you for the support on the Ginny/Harry setup. I like the timeline and I think drawing it out makes it much more fun. Thanks for the kind review!
very sweet chapter! and i'm glad Harry finally told Ron and Hermione about the prophecy, they had a right to know i think. The description of Hermione's face when she told them about her research, was just classic. It really conveyed her character well, and it was also quite funny too. Reminded me of me if anything! :S Anyway, great chapter, well done, and i look forward to the next one!
Author's Response: Thank you! I love Hermione when she gets into her passionate modes - even if they are limited to books and studying. As a "professional student" I can identify with that. Thank you for the lovely review!
woah ace chapter!! brilliant! finally both couples got together!! i loved the ron/hermione part, and the harry/ginny part was sooooo sweeet! and i was laughin ma head off at the slytherin bit! oo i wonder what they were up to tho *shify eyes* lol. anywho that was great!! update asap! :D
Author's Response: Thanks very much! For some reason it was really important to me that Ron and Hermione get together first - probably because they're been avoiding it for so long. I'm glad the Slytherin bit came off well. I was afraid it was too cheesy, but I wanted something to balance out the fluff. Thanks for your kind review!
Summary: A typical LilyJames story, but with few twists. Lily is a Marauder and is best friends with James. If you are looking for pink hair-dye, Truth or Dare and revenge on evil Slytherins, then this is the story for you!
wow i love this story! please update soon! im dying to know what happens! you've really characterised the way teenagers would react too, you've done it so well, keep up the good work!
woooo i love this story!! its really funny, n i think u've written it really well too! keep the updates comin!
