Summary: Sure, the tales of the Trio are great, and I'm not denying it. But what happens after the end of their story? Death, deception, and disagreements, to name a few things. Join Cora Potter, along with her best friends Olivia and Drew, during their first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry- and I can guarantee that you will never see the HP universe the same way again.
Chapter eleven is being painfully slow, isn't it? I promise to have it done by the time the queue reopens!
Was that Voldemort thing completlely random or does it have some significance, and why am I so suspiscious of Dean, and why am I asking you that question when I dont even know the answer? =)
Author's Response: usually people ask questions when they don't know the answer. it's perfectly within your liberites to ask me anything you like. everything that has happened has some significance to the rest of the story... I think. yeah. it does. however, that is the only question you asked that i will answer. Thanks for reviewing!
Is Drew by any chance the son of Luna Lovegood? Mum's in Ravenclaw, dirty blonde hair, blue eyes, they all added up for me, but still, just a hunch. Love the start, you can already tell this will be a group of trouble makers.
Author's Response: oho someone else guessed it! I was wondering how long it would take before someone figured that out. I thought the whole "crumple-horned snorkack" bit in chapter 2 was a dead giveaway, but apparently i was wrong. thanks for the continued reviews!
Summary: Harry has to say goodbye to Hogwarts, Privet Drive and his former life. But in all bad situations, there is always a little hope and Ginny provides Harry with comfort. Ron and Hermione become a couple but are also there at Harry's side. Together, they face the hardest and most important battle of their lives. (Most romance happens in later chapters). I promise the story gets much better. I set the category at romance R/H and H/G because its general but has LOTS of shipping moments.
I am about to critisize the story...BUT... it does not change the fact that I like it so dont take it too badly -all the characters seem very OCC, I was very upset with the way you portrayed Hermione and Ginny - I don't understand why Ron is so upset with Hermione because according to her he put her under the imperius curse But i really like this story and will continue to read it I hope you put in some kind of plot twist like Hermione's baby really is Ron's or this whole thing ends up to be a dream or something like that
Summary: Auror-in-training Kingsley Shacklebolt is learning to blend in with the crowd in downtown London. There, he meets a small, lost girl, and learns how much impact a simple act of kindness can really have.
This was an unusual fanfiction, a nice one, but unusual. You don't usually see fics with a direct lesson, sometimes you don't see them at all. I like how you even proved the point in this story. That one little incedent and that one little thing that Kingsley told her, supposedly meaningless, probably helped save the wizarding world in some way.
Summary: One day you'll love me as I love you. One day you'll think of me as I think of you. One day you'll cry for me as I cry for you. One day you'll want me, but I won't want you.
If only he'd taken his chance, if only he hadn't tried to protect her...would Ginny be in his arms now? A one-shot reflecting on Harry's heartbreaking choice.
That moment stabbed me too, just as it did Harry. Maybe, one day, Ginny will realize that she loves him, and come back. This is why I love one-shots, they are almost never final. The reader can choose to end it anyway.
Author's Response: I'm really pleased that you felt Harry's emotions in this - it was sad for me to write, too! And yes, you can choose it to end in any way, so some people prefer the happy, some the sad. Thanks for your review!
Rated: [Reviews - ]
How could this story get rejected (I read the other reviews) it is brillaintly funny!
Author's Response: Aaaw! Thank you *blush* for reading the story and the reviews. Thats why it got rejected, because it was funny. The MoDs thought that people wouldn't get the jokes, but I guess they did by the number of the reviews... Thanks again!
Oh, so sweet! What does Lilly mean "best friends ex?" Well I'll just have to wait to find out... 10/10
Can't wait to read the next!
Author's Response: Yaaay! Thank you for the review(s) You'll find out soon enough *wink wink*
Summary: Ginny is now 24 years old. She is well-known and famous. But during a press-conference, memories of her past begin to come back to her. She goes back to the summer she turned 16. The summer that changed her life. But Hermione and Harry are acting strangely. What is really going on? POV of Ginny at first and then changes! HBP spoilers.
Ooooo, lisa_lovegood had a really good idea, they could be veela. Why hadn't I thought of that. Awseome plot twist, now everyone is going to come back and read to find out why the heck Harry is surrounded by Hollywood's most wanted.
I sent you back your chapter! Sorry, for taking so long...
I really liked this chapter! It was a good balance between fast-paced and slow-paced, and a very informative chapter too.
I'm excited to see what happens with Ron and Hermione. I read some other reviews and many people seem to be doubting Ron and Hermione's love, but I think limp bodies are a good sign. It means they arene't being tortured like harry was...I think.
Even if they were horrible... the Dursley's ddnt deserve to die, I know that Harry will want his revenge on voldemort. must...have....new...chapter
Summary: We've seen Hagrid's rage, we've felt Harry's betryal, but there were more there that day, when the man face the rat.
A muggle's confusion, a mother's pain, they were all there that day, when the man faced the rat
My son, my beautiful son...
And do you know what he did then? He laughed. He stood there and laughed.
I thought this was really well written, especially Remus' part at the end. It's just like him, wanting to believe that Sirius was innocent when everyone is saying otherwise. I also liked the interview with the muggle who saw what really happened. Finally, a missing moment no longer missing.
Summary: What happens when Dumbledore has his latest "brilliant" idea, to start an advice column, and call it 'Dear Dumby'? Letters from some of our favourite Hogwarts students, some of our not so favourite Hogwarts students, some not even Hogwarts students at all, and, of course, lots of madness!
Pre-HBP for obvious reasons!
Nominee for the Best Humour Award in the Quicksilver Quill Awards! Many thanks to all who voted for it!
Oh no! *tears* The almost last chapter. I've loved this fic so much. I love HP humour fics because it gives us the human side of the characters that we don't often see in the books. Looks like Dumbledore's out of advice, poor old man. He's even gone to asking his own bad advice.
Author's Response: Aw, thank you HarryPotter is my LIFE! I know - only one left! *tears up too* *passes out the Kleenex* I\'m so pleased to hear that you love the fic though! Ah yes, poor old Dumby! I wonder what he\'ll have to resort to doing next...?! Thanks for reviewing!
I thought this was quite a piece. I noticed subtle hints of what is considered cliched. The way you put addded it in, I've assumed that you ment them to add humour. Such as, Ron's ravenous appetite, Ron's fanon dumbness (no homework done and 'useless' replies) Harry's quick reference the another ball. I'm looking foward to reading on!
Author's Response: Yes, most of those were making fun of the overuse! (I\'ll admit, one of them wasn\'t, but this was my first ever fanfiction piece! To be honest, I\'m really tempted to change some of it...) But yes, I was making fun of a few things there! I\'m glad you liked it - by all means, please read on!
Very clever. You not so subtly hinted who each belonged to, which made it twice as funny. I particularly liked Ron's (AKA- Confused) letter. His fanon daftness shows again. He's not proclaiming his love in an anonymous article. Does he realise this? (I also thought Dumbledore's comment on hiring someone else to teach Potions was funny.)
Author's Response: Ah yes - the term \'subtlety\' doesn\'t seem to really have sunk in to the magical world! Poor Ron, so desperate to be in denial, I think by the time he re-reads his letter, he does see more of what he really feels - no, wait, sorry, what his friend really feels! ;-p Thanks, I\'m glad you\'re enjoying it!
I like the way that you are switching between the Dear Dumby issues and real life. It gives an even more humouress aspect when we get to see the effects of everything.
Author's Response: Thank you, I like writing the variety of them both, and hopefully it adds more interest to the story.
Once again, your articles have entertained me. These aren't so much the laugh out loud type of things as subtly humourous ones. It' sometimes preferable that way. In this case, I'm glad it's not laugh out loud funny as it would seem more random and less realish. (And I might get yelled at for waking up everyone in the house.)
Author's Response: *Giggles* Well, at least my writing\'s good for something (ie: not waking up everyone)! I\'m pleased that you\'re enjoying it, thanks!
(Oh and since I forgot to mention it in my last review and the 'delete' button wouldn't let me delete and re-review, when I read Hermione's letter, I was assualted with a mental picture of Hermione snogging Malfoy and Ron going balistic.)
Ok, onto this chapter. I thought it was very mature of Ron to be nice to Hermione, and very immature of Hermione to provoke him, though it was funny.
Parvati's a laugh, really, she's always portrayed as ditzy and girly in fanfiction, but honestly, I never saw her as that in the books.
Author's Response: (You know, I don\'t think the delete button works, as I\'ve tried it before when I made a typo, but it just took me to a blank page. Quite embarrassing, as I corrected a mistake (in the story) in my review, only to become slightly hypocritical!) It\'s interesting you should say that about Hermione+Malfoy=Ron going balistic... *Giggles* Sort of, anyway! Basically, with Ron and Hermione, they were both just following Dear Dumby\'s advice - Ron was being really nice to Hermione, whilst at the same time Hermione was trying to make him jealous! No, I agree about Parvati, I think it\'s just as she and Lavender are such a contrast to Hermione, it\'s been exagerated a little. Although I personally think she\'s not nearly as ditzy and girly as she\'s portrayed...even if I am guilty of it myself! It did fit quite well though... *Scowls at my own hypocriticalness* Well, I\'ll definitely try to be careful of that in the future.
Was that last one Voldemort?
Maybe, Fudge should write to Dumby asking for help on his subtlety?
Author's Response: Well, all the letters are completely confidentual, so I really couldn\'t say... *Develops sudden twitch, causing head to bob up and down in an almost nodding action...* *Giggles* That\'s (Fudge\'s subtlety letter)actually a really great idea! I\'ll see if I can fit it in!
I thought this chapter was positively hilarious. I;m not sure why, but i found this chapter more funny than the rest...maybe it's because I;m drinking green tea. [/randomness] I loved Hermione putting Ron's wardrobe in front of the blackboard. Very clever.
Author's Response: Hmm...green tea...maybe! Thank you, this could be my favourite chapter too! I had such great fun excerting Hermione\'s revenge! And you almost got your Malfoy prediction from a while ago right! I\'m so pleased that you enjoyed reading this one, as I really got a kick out of writing it!
I have a feeling the Harry obsessed one was Ginny, and I also have a feeling that something will hint to who it was next chapter.
HAHA! Malfoy has wrinkles.
Mrs. Norris...in toilet, though it may have been a bit more funny if Myrtle was taunting her...just a thoght.
Author's Response: Nope, sorry, it\'s not Ginny! I know - bad luck Malfoy! Gosh, you\'re full of good ideas today! Yes, you\'re right, that would have been funnier... Have you written a humour fic? If not, think about it!
