Oh, I love this chapter. Again, it gives us a subtle insight into both their characters, and you know I love seeing that. *grin*.

First, I liked Merope's jealousy. Although the woman Sara, hadn't been trying to flirt with Tom, she wanted to shield him from her. I think it's typical of her.

Second, I liked the sweet, instinctive nature the potion had given to Tom. Gosh, and that lie about the coffee! lol. I must say I liked how he wanted to be romantic, though I knew it wasn't natural, and it's just... so sweet and childlike. Again, I love how you drop clever hints without bluntly telling the reader what's going on.

And the ending!! I can't stop going on about it. You know I like twists, and this was the best. I'm sorry, but it *was* a bit funny to me. How the poor fellow wanted to surprise her at midnight , but because of the lack of potion, forgot all about it. *sigh*

Just one thing to nit-pick, here, and that's just probably a typo:She removed herself from Tom’s embraced, but grabbed...

Great work!

Author's Response: Whoops, stupid typo! Thanks for the great reveiw, and I hope you enjoy the rest! There are a lot of cut-off endings, as well as twists and turns in this story so I think you\'ll like it.

 

Barty's Story by Cruciatus Love
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 33]

Summary: Barty Crouch Jr. is willing to give up everything for his master. He would go to any great length do to His bidding.


Follow Barty as he takes his steps through the Quidditch World Cup in GoF. What parts of the story did you miss while reading from Harry's point of view? This is the side of the story that you really care about.

Date: 08/14/06 Title: Chapter 1: The Quidditch World Cup

This was a really unique way of telling the story. Obviously, you've done a lot of reference from GoF, and the way each of Barty's lines fits in is perfect. :) I could sense the intense - almost mad devotion in him, and it's pretty scary to think of what would happen if he hadn't been caught. *shivers*

I could see you've put a lot of thought into writing what happens in a crowd. Sometimes, one might get carried away, or spun off the track while doing it, but I liked the intelligent ideas Barty has. For instance: Using his strategy of picking one person and walking directly behind them to avoid bumping into someone, he managed to make his way out of the arena and onto the campsites.

I enjoyed seeing the events from a different angle. What I would suggest is a more detailed description. What you've written is perfectly fine, it's just my hunger for detail, because this provides a perfect opportunity for it - the noise, sweat, excitement, and then the fear and utter panic.

Overall, though, you've done a great job on this. Keep up the good work!

Author's Response: Thanks for the wonderful review. And I\'m glad that I made the character realistic enough that it made you shudder thinking of what could happen had he escaped...*giggle*

Let me congratulate you for so accurately entering into the mind of the bird who lives on forever. I enjoyed this fic from the beginning to the end. The opening lines, particularly, drew me in. This entire fic was amazing. However, for the sake of saying something constructive, I do think you could have the bird speak more about his master, talk of some of his unique qualities, and give examples, maybe. Fabulous job!

Author's Response: I\'m so glad that enjoyed it. Might I say: you mentioned that you congratulate me for \'so accurately entering...the mind of the bird who lives on forever.\' That was kind of the whole point; to get Fawke\'s POV on everything, not on Dumbledore. I do see where you\'re coming from, and how that would be beneficial to the fic, however-in the thousands of years that the phoenix lived, the hundred years or so that Dumbledore was \'in posession\' of him are only a drop in the bucket. The fic was meant to show the entire picture. And, yeah, I know that it ends with Dumbledore\'s death and whatnot, but I wanted to give it what it deserved per Fawkes and no more. Gosh. That was complete rambling, wasn\'t it? :D

Summary: Past Featured Story"Good Morrow dear reader. If you are reading this, you have found the diary of Pugnatious Aramor Weasley. As to how you found this diary I have no idea as I’ve decided to toss the ruddy thing as soon as I become famous for fear that this incriminates me in any fashion. Unless I haven’t become famous in which cause that ruddy well blows doesn’t it?"

I really enjoyed this story though I'm fully a J/L shipper. I love it because it is rushed. That sort of adds an element of... I'm not too sure, but it sure is good! If it was full of complex paragraphs, it would be messed up. The flow of the story was great, and this was a fabulous AU story. Fantastic job!

Author's Response: I, myself, ship J/L but I just thought it would be nice to have a go at an AU story for once :) I'm really glad you liked it, I'm forever having people tell me how rushed things are and to stop and smell the roses as it were lol. Thanks for reading! :D

Whoa, this was a good combination of violence, death and romance. I liked it. It was unusual, and different from other violent fics... I must admit - Argus and Irma's confessions of love were a bit funny to me as well. sorry. Don't mind me if it wasn't meant like that though, it was still very good. The ending was really romantic and dark and violent, as I'm sure you intended it to be. I just have two tiny errors to point out though, Demelza's last name is Robins, not Roberts. "His spell tore the boy’s in two.” - that must be 'the boy' or 'the boy's body'. Just thought I'd point that out.. A great job on the whole though. Oh, to answer your other response, I usually try keep track of the fics on my favourite list, and one of yours was on it.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! And for pointing out the errors; I'll have to go back and change them (I'm so embarrassed about the "boy's" mistake--I normally don't mix up possessive adjectives and plural nouns like that!). And I'm glad you liked it; I liked it, too. Keep reading; I hope to have another fic up within the month

Preethi, m'dear! *huggles*

As always, your writing has managed to absorb me completely. Although I have this bad habit of keeping away from stories that have non-canon pairings, I could completely understand and appreciate the logic in this particular narration. It makes so much sensel, it could be canon. :)

It's interesting how you don't make the two meet directly - I've never ever seen that in a romance story, and that fact adds a different sort of flavour to yours and gives you brownie points

This part was a bit confusing, though - “Lily?” sounded a voice. And to her amazement, she recognised it as Rosina’s voice. She was confused, when Rosina opened the door. Instead, you could have Rosina emerge, and then have Lily ask her what more she wanted , and so on, because this directly follows the fake Rosina's exit and might give birth to misconceptions. :) Not to worry, though.

Ah, and the end. I could go on about it. I love unexpected twists and you pulled off a somersault with this one. *grin* Nice work!

-Manju

Author's Response: Manju! *hugs* Thank you for that great review, especially the part about it could be canon: one of the greatest praise a fanfiction author could get. And I get what you mean about misconceptions, but since \"Rosina\" vanished so abruptly, I thought it would be kinda weird to make Lily start a fight again when she\'s so confused. Anyway, thanks for the brilliant review! *hugs*

I really like it. I think you've captured the mood before a battle beautifully. The present tense was also and added plus point.. But I think you could elaborate a bit on the ending though.. Harry says 'now I know the meaning of life'.. how did it dawn on him? What, precisely, is the meaning? What would Luna have said at the time.. Of course, if you've kept it that way on purpose, that's well and good.. It's just me.. I like detail. An excellent job on the whole.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I, also, am not fond of my ending. I tried several different endings, but none worked very well. I swear to change it one day, when I finally get a brilliant idea of what to change it to.

Now, I swear I remember reviewing this very excellent story... I dunno.. this was very, very well written. I totally love it. It was incredibly different and I hope Mundungus doesn't do a stupid thing like that in canon! lol.. Great job!

Author's Response: You probably did read it before. I made a few minor changes and submitted it again in hopes of getting it to show up as a \"Most Recent\" story. Unluckily for me, things didn\'t work out right and it, again, failed to make it into that part of the data base. I just hope that the new database design will lead more people to it.

This is wonderfully written, CA!! I thoroughly enjoyed it. I love your portrayal of Helga and I wish we could have seen what sort of people you made the other three. Somehow, I get the feeling from the end that Slytherin didn't love her as much as he made out to because later the Hat appears to be faking concern for her...
Am I wrong?


Anyhow, I loved these lines. Well, you’re getting my brim all wet with your tears.

“I thought it was something like that.”
So funny! Superb job!


Author's Response: Ummm...actually, I don\'t know. I think it could go either way. Salazar did come talk to the hat, and worry about Helga, but that could have been not because he still loved her but because he still cared for her ... I\'m really glad you liked it, I\'ll have to think about doing another Founders fic. Thanks for your review! *D*

I can't think of words to say about this. It was wonderful!

Great work as always! I think your descriptions were pretty good and I really admire the way you've written Crookshanks's thoughts.. It was really funny, I assure you, the way McGonagall pulled out the last minute...lol.. One thing I noticed and liked was the funny way you'd given the people's personalities to the cats. On the whole, the entire... atmosphere that was created in the story really suited that cat. I'm not too sure about the line about Mrs.Norris though..."I haven’t met Mrs. Norris yet. She’s a half-kneazle like me—maybe she’s the feline I’m looking for." How does he know she's half-kneazle if he hadn't met her? I think he would have met her, seeing as how those two like prowling about all the time.. anyhow, that's just my opinion. You're welcome to ignore it.. I thought this fic was really good because if we think Crookshanks, then we automatically pair him up with Mrs. Norris, but this wasn't the case here. Do write more! ~bL

Author's Response: I really like writing good descriptions--I love all the imagery that comes along with it! And Crookshanks was quite a fun character to explore--one of my other reviewers said he was a bit like Draco Malfoy (which he is)! The Professor McGonagall bit--my brother and sister were both goggling at the computer screen at that part, gasping for breath! I was quite delighted by their reactions. About Mrs. Norris--Crookshanks has only been at the school for a few weeks. I'm sure he's heard about Mrs. Norris, but I guess he's just unlucky enough not to have met her yet :) Just an explanation to gloss over my mistake. By brother thought I was going to pair Crookshanks with Mrs. Norris, too, and I didn't bother to correct him. Which lended to his shock and surprise. And don't worry, I will write more stories!

Ah, this is a great story! Well, well. Snape telling bedtime stories. That is quite interesting. I was a bit dubious in the beginning, but you pulled it off quite magnificently! Hm, I liked the exploration of each and everything Draco says. This is such an unusual and interesting story, that I have to add it to my favourites!

Author's Response: Wow -- I just peeked at your other favourites and am totally utterly flattered by the company. This was one of those little \'surprise\' stories. I started wondering what sort of relationship Severus and Draco really had, detoured into someone\'s recently-posted desire for second-person storytelling, and suddenly there was a new idea in my head. Thank you for reviewing! And favouring!
