Summary: This story is about Harry's struggle...his struggle to obey his mind when his heart is screaming out in protest .
It's about Ginny's secrets, her aching heart, and where her loyalty lies.
Mainly, this story is about friends, those you can trust and those who can't trust you.
Reviews are fun and easy! So don't shy away from stating your opinion...trust me, it feeds the fire so I'm not left out in the cold! ;)
This chapter was slightly confusing. When did Harry hex Lupin? Why does everyone hate everyone? I also think it was very OCC for Harry and Ginny to behave the way the did... that is, to separate themselves from the order and accuse the people that are their family. And finally... Why and when did Lupin leave? Besides all that...I absolutely love this chapter so i give it an 8. (Sorry for the not high rating but all of the above lowered the score)
Author's Response: Hmmm, are Tonks and Lupin their family? Perhaps Harry and Ginny feel that they are, but the fact remains that they really are not. Harry hexed Lupin because he was enraged that Lupin would dare to put Ginny in a dangerous situation. You have to see that Ginny's safety and security are Harry's priority. If Harry had to choose between Ginny or anyone else, his choice is always Ginny! He protects her even if he must turn on Lupin his trusted friend. It does not seem so terribly out of character to me. Remember that James protected his family by going into hidding because he believed one of his bestfriends (Lupin or Sirius) was a traitor to the Order. In my story, James was more inclined to believe that it was Lupin rather than Sirius...though it proved to be Pettigrew of all people! Notice that James suspected Lupin of wrongdoing and acted...similarly, Harry was certain that Lupin's actions and perhaps he overreacted. The issue I wanted to point out is Harry is reacting much as James had done, with a protective instinct. People, he does not have a crush on Ginny...he is not in "like" with Ginny...he is in love with her. It took a long time for him to get to this point...but here we are. He has shown to everyone in the Order, without a shadow of a doubt, how he feels for her and that he is willing to turn on all of them if they are trying to harm her! Again, his number one priority? Ginny!
This one is tricky, I still can't figure out who the traitor is. Both candidates seem so unlikely, maybe it's Gaia because we all know that Lupin doesn't have a good judge of charecter (Peter Pettigrew) but he also had good judjement on his other friends (James and Sirius) Maybe there's another person that it could be that Ginny doesn't know about?
Summary: It's just your average, boring Summer day on Privet Drive. Or is it? Harry is stuck doing another one of his many thankless chores, when he hears something VERY interesting coming from Dudley's room and goes to investigate.
*laughs extremely hard and begins to choke, recovers enough to write the review* I must say, you have an amazing talent for humour fics.
Summary: Sequel to Always Stick Together. After the life-changing events of the last few weeks, and the emotional ending to Always Stick Together, the wizarding world prepares to fight for their freedom. Harry is going to have to play a key role in the battle and Ginny is willing to do anything to get them through the Second War... Love, unity, friendship and courage will all be tested in this battle between good and evil - but will it all come to a happy ending?
Reading Always Stick Together first is not completely necessary, but it would help this story to make more sense!
That was so sad! why didn't Harry die? Was it Ginny's love that saved him? Did the curse rebound upon Voldemort again? The last part was unclear...what happened? *10* Awsome final chapter!
Author's Response: Yeah I was afraid that it might have been. There was so much to get into that one split second! Basically, think of what happened when Lily jumped in front of the killing curse for Harry - history has just repeated itself... Thanks for reviewing!
This is such as sweet story (except for the whole Voldemort taking over the world thing) I love the H/G romance and still want more but also some Hr/R.
Author's Response: Yeah Hr/R is a very background thing in this fic, but it is there in small details. H/G still going strong in the last few chapters which are still to come...
Great story. Love it! But isn't Dean Thomas dead? In the story you had him say something.
Author's Response: OMG really?! Ooops! That's a huge error on my part - I'll change it right now! Thanks!
Summary: What happens when Fred and George Weasley, Hogwarts' reknowned kings of pranks, decide to spike a shipment of pumpkin juice bound for Hogwarts with truth potion? A day filled with true confessions of Hogwarts students!!!!!
This was really funny. I love how you tied up a bunch of ships into a humour fic. This was really a gut splitting, stuff your face in the pillow so mum doesn't hear and think that I am in some kind of trouble fic. Most definentely a 10!
I' not sure if I've reviewed already, I probably have. This is the 3rd time I've read this story and it is still funny. I absolutely love the Hermione/Draco encounters. This is most definiently a one of a kind fic and the reason that I love Fred and George so much.
Summary: Ronald Weasley struggles with his teaspoon's worth of emotions during Hermione's stay at the Burrow summer after fifth year. With the Twins succumbing the household to spontaneous product trials, and a new Minister of Magic, one would think that Hermione's Bulgarian pen pal would be the least of Ron's problems.
And that would be what one would get for thinking.
Surprises abound (the Good and the Bad) assure the Weasleys and their house guest this will be a summer all but one of them will never forget.
Final chapter is in queue. Wow, that took forever, didn't it?
I bet Krum is a Death Eater. Quote-“Vy–of course I deny it! That is preposterous! I certainly am not in league vith the Dark Lord.”-
He said Dark Lord! Only Death Eaters call him that!
You have me positvely sucked into this story. Hermione seems just in character to be huffy with Ron about the whole thing with Viktor, and refusing to believe it too, because she knows that Ron has it in for him. The only thing that strikes me odd is Tom. He seems a bit testy for what I would think. Of course, we know almost nothing about him, so, anything is possible. (Besides, it would be a lot less funny if I wasn't picturing an old toothless guy engaging a fight with a young adult.)
Poor Ron, he needs more confidence or he will be Overly Git-like forever.
Author's Response: Hear, hear!
Awwww! Poor Ron, Hermione practicly hates him now. Well I can't wait to see what he makes of it...update soon!
Author's Response: Yes indeed, poor poor Ron... Update in a few days, mate!
I was right! He was a Death Eater. Personally, I'd rather think he wasn't I've always liked Viktor, but it's so intresting the conflict you cooked up.
I like the side of Ron we see here. Most stories portray Ron as as the village idiot, the one who cant spell his own name. (Which is sort of true, but it was only because the spell on the quill wore off.)It's nice to see a story where Ron is figuring everything out and uses the brains that some seem to think he lacks to save Hermione. I also like the fact that the jealousy he's been holding for so long turned out to save Hermione.
That was certainly not the ending that I was expecting. Now the wait for the epilogue will kill me. Will you make a miracle and have Ron live through it? Or will normalcy remain and Hermione is left without a love.
Just one question, did evil Death Eater freak (AKA Viktor) kill Hermione too?
Author's Response: Why, thank you, HarryPotter ismy LIFE. I don\'t like how the movies, and some fan-fics, portray Ron. They show him as more of a, as you put it, village idiot. He does have brains, though--and talents, in Quidditch, Chess.... and Friendship. I thought he ought to be in the spotlight, having taken such abuse for so long. As for your questions... you\'ll have to wait and find out. Thanks so much for reviewing, dear!
At what point did Harry defeat Voldemort and when did he proopose to Ginny? I love the story!
The stupid minister!!!! Aha, I knew that he would have at least been trying a little harder if he was really good, he is such an evil...bad word. Well I thought Ron was a little OCC when he was going to arrest Harry, but he was redeemed when he cast the sheild spell in Harry's defence. Also I think that Harry was a little OCC in his attitude with Justin and the potions room guy, I dont think he would have been quite so rude, even if he was looking for Ginny, I would think that would have been a last resort after being nice didnt work.
Stupid Malfoy!!!!!!!!!! Harry beat him once and he'll do it again!
Summary: In the age of innocence, friends discover that not everyone is innocent. Especially not who they expected to be. Everyone makes mistakes, even Hermione Granger...
When are we going to find out who's baby it is? I don't blame Ginny's reaction at all, sometimes out temper and frustration gets the best of us and we say things that whether they are true or untrue should not be said.
Author's Response: Thank you for not blaming Ginny! She really had a lot on her mind. And as for the baby, you'll just have to wait and see. I'm not sure how much longer it'll be because I have a few more plot points before that.
Summary: Harry and his friends are back at the Burrow for the summer. There are several unexpected guests there as well. Add Harry’s inheritance, new friendships, and budding love, and it all adds up to Summer Dreams. Will be PG-13 in later chapters. Written pre-HBP Chapter 8 is up! Thanks to all my loyal readers and reviewers!
I vote Ginny! I think the rwo need something to test their relationship. An't wait to see the next chapter!
Author's Response: Well, the next chapter is in the queue, but it's not Ginny! Don't worry, Harry and Ginny will be "discussing" things in chapter 9 (I think!)
Summary: Shortly before his 17th birthday, Harry returns to Grimmauld place where he stumbles upon a secret room with the help of someone special. H/G with background R/Hr.Post-last battle, pre-HBP (confusing, eh?). Chapter 6 in queue!
I wonder whats wrong with Hermione?
Summary: Since the tragedy at the Astronomy Tower, Harry has become an even more formidable wizard, but a shocking revelation may mean the difference between life and death for The Boy Who Lived. It is the final stage of Harry's quest to destroy Lord Voldemort - can he save the Wizarding World and those he loves from the treachery of the Dark Lord... and also save himself? [Action takes place in media res towards the end of Harry's Seventh Year at Hogwarts (Post-HBP).]
Amazing! I love this story, although I can't imagine JK Rowling finshing her story like that... it still makes sence where you get this from!
Author's Response: Lol - I love your screenname ;). Thanks so much for reviewing and you do have a point - with every chapter this will probably get farther from what will actually happen, but so long as it's not directly contradicting anything we've read so far in books 1-6, I'm gonna plow through and hope for the best! Cheers :)
Rated: [Reviews - ]
I agree with your title...Normalcy is overrated...well anyway back to the story, is the writer person Maj perhaps? Update please, can't wait!
Author's Response: And I agree with your name. Thanks for adding your guess pertaining to Ron's stalker, but no one can find out until Chapter 21...muahaha...
