Okay. Okay Okay Okay Okay Okay Okay
For all of you who wanted an update, I have a proposition. You may or may not like it, but it's all I can offer.
Check review challenge for the last chapter. details there!
James and Lily Potter were possibly the most famous parents in wizarding history. We know alot about their adult life, but what do we really know about their childhood? Even Harry never knew about the Drama, jealousy, danger, friendships, happiness, sadness, resentment,confusion and love that his parents went through as children. Here, their lives, from when the two of them were eleven to when they were brutally murdered at only 21, is recorded. Lily and James Potter were unsung heros. This is their story.
a transition chapter is a chapter that lays the foundation for the chapters to come. foreshadowing means putting something in the body of the chapter that predicts whats coming next aka when one of your charachters hinted she wouldnt be able to talk to him later and make it okay between them
Author's Response: thanks for the clearup! I feel dumb lol okie dokie, yes there is a significance with krysta's words, but how significant it is well you'll see... thanks n cya!!
Summary: Andromeda Black is in her third year at Hogwarts and the thought of breaking free from her family is the only thing that keeps her going.
Hmm... Not many (speaking relatively) choose to write Andromeda fics, but if more wrote like you we'd be set. I particularly liked your vocabulary and imagery. You also did a good job on description. My only complaint is that there wasn't more info on her friends on the train, and what they did.
Author's Response: Thank you. I agree though, there should be more Andromeda fics out there, she is such an unexplored and interesting character!

Im sorry I got snippy I didnt know Im sorry about your loss
Author's Response: Don't worry about it. It's not really 'a loss' afterall, I'll be with her again one day. It's just a little hard at the moment. I do know how frustrating it feels to have to wait, being a reader of many great stories myself. And I am sincerely sorry that I can't update, but be assured I will strive to write up chapter eight as soon as I can. Give me a few more weeks with my family, and I should be fine. Thank you for the apology though, it is appreciated.
I have already written a review and am about ready to start... for lack of a better word (well not lack but you get the point) yelling at you to update for christs sake!!! I mean cmon how long does it take!!!! Just update soon so I dont have to be evil okay...
Author's Response: I apologise for the long wait, but family matters have been getting in the way recently, and I'm afraid to say that the death of my grandmother is a little more important than my fan-fiction. Like I have said before, I do try to keep on top of my story, but I do not currently have access to a computer that will allow me to sit down and type up chapter eight (I'm using my grandfather's at the moment to reply but he's on cable so it's costing). I am sorry that it's taking a little longer than I anticipated, but my family (myself included) are still grieving over the loss of one of the most amazing people I have ever known. If I tried to write like this, I wouldn't be being true to the story. It would be sloppy and empty, and I don't want to spoil something that I've worked so hard on. Please give me a chance to sort my life out, I will update as soon as I can. Apologies...
BLOODY BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!! I loved it and the writing was beautiful. Did I detect a hint of fore shadow at the end the though?
Author's Response: Ooh...you'll just have to wait and see... Thank you!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I'll try to update quickly, but I'm back on with GCSEs now. Unfortunately. I'm really pleased, now! You liked it! Yay!!!!!!
I just read the story and oh my god. thats all I have to say. oh my god.
(thats a good thing btw)The whole story so far has been AMAZING! Update soon please!
Author's Response: Yay, you enjoyed it. I'm so very pleased about that!! Update coming in the New Year, just as soon as I've got the whole family-reunion-party-every-night-of-the-holidays thing out of the way. Thanks for reviewing and Happy New Year!!!!
You updated! wow really great job on this chapter.your style hasnt changed to awful much btw. Again Great Job!
Author's Response: Oh thanks. That is a relief, I was pretty worried about that. I'm sorry for the long wait, though. And I will try to keep ahead, but that isn't to say my posts will always be quick. Thank you!
Messrs. Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot and Prongs -- These names are known by every person in Hogwarts. These names, and an envelope with a scarlet wax seal bearing the letters: MWPP.
The teachers dread it, the students revel in it...but who are these 'Marauders,' as they are called? That's just it. Nobody knows. Most every prank Hogwarts sees is at the hands of these mysterious Marauders, and the perpetrators always walk free. They could never be caught. You can’t catch phantoms.
Lily Evans is just as curious as the next student as to who these Marauders are, but her curiosity is transformed into a hungry need, when she receives a letter herself from a certain Mr. Prongs.
[This story is slightly AU, but more on that in the author's note at the end.]
I loved it very... sweet! it has quite a bit of fluf but I couldnt care less. do you want a gold star????

Author's Response: I'd love a gold star. ;) Thanks so much, and hehe, I <3 fluff. ;)
Summary: James Potter: Marauder. Lily Evans: Prefect. They're both seventh years at Hogwarts. They're also about to have a pretty interesting year--complete with a few detentions, pranks, confusion, and laughter--in which they get through school, make some trouble and maybe, just maybe, sort out their feelings for each other.
Thanks to all you who have made it possible for this story to be in the Top Tens. It was a very happy moment when I first saw my story on the list, and I love being able to go back and see it there now. Still. Yay!
Throughout the latter half of 2010, and the first half of 2011, I re-edited this story. The changes were mostly to fix stray (and annoying) grammar and spelling errors, but also to rework some plot points in an effort to stay truer to canon. I also updated the style; having written this story so long ago, my writing has definitely developed (and I would say gotten better), so I edited to reflect that. (I apologize for the errors that were in the story before all this editing. I found them immensely distressing when I reread my chapters. Heartbreaking, really.)
Big “thank yous” go to the three people who helped edit/nitpick the first edition of this novel: violagirl, fairiesandcream, and Omagus.
And yes, this story is up on Fanficition.net under the penname: Io.Sono.Emilia.
Of course, as a disclaimer, I’m not JK Rowling. The Potterverse does not belong to me, but I am in it and love it.
applause... good job
very good its a fave now... thanks alot, post again quick cause my little american ass can get swotty
Author's Response: Hehehe. Thanks much. Aren't Americans just awesome!?!?!?!
It was a good addition to the story however it's rather choppy in places, for example the quidditch scene. It's a fast chapter and I felt rushed. Just call me slowsky!
Author's Response: Very well, Slowsky. I\'m sorry it\'s a bit choppy. I didn\'t really like writing the Quidditch scene. It\'s not one of my favorites.
Summary: Oh, Harry. How different his life could have been. My own life, too. But Voldemort chose me, so I must carry the burden; not Harry. I only wonder how much it would change him, if he happened to be me. The one with the wizarding world counting on them. The one with the bad past. That's not Harry Potter, but me, Neville Longbottom.
Neville reflects on what has come to be, and what could have been.
"It's kind of fun to do the impossible." -- Walt Disney
Interesting twist on an old tale. Neville hits the what could have beens right on the nose. I really enjoyed it, but it didn't really sound like Neville. It semed to elegant to be Neville.
Author's Response: Yeah, I thought Neville would change as a person if his life took such a dramatic twist. Thanks for the review!
Summary: The war is over. Harry Potter defeated Voldemort. But... what next? How do you pick up the pieces after so many years of war? Is it possible to just forget the past? How do you keep from asking "what if?"
Wow, that was touching. You really showed that every person will have to hold on or give up at one time or another. That was amazing.
One nitpicky thing though, if you space your paragraghs better, it'll look neater and won't look like on big block of text.
Author's Response: Ah. Paragraphs. Mugglenet coding and I don\'t get along, you see. I gave up on trying to get it to look right. :-\\ Sorry if it annoyed you.
Author's Response: on another note though, thanks! I\'m glad you liked the fic. ;)
Summary: One-shot. Hermione once believed that Draco Malfoy could never change his spots but after a strange twist of fate, she sees a side of him she has never seen before.
That was a wonderfully sweet tale, if a little ooc. Other than that, it would've been extremely believable.
Your imagery was amazing. I could picture the dark room with flickering candles... Oh! Just the pictures make me warm inside!
And the ironic tendacies were good as well.
Summary: Consumed by her thoughts, Lily pours them out to a friend, only to find the wrong person hear them. Or is it the right one? One-shot.
Wow, you have a beta that loves you that much?
Anyways, sweet story, but I couldn't quite figure out who she was spilling her beans to. I knew she had a friend there at the beginning but then there was no reaction from them towards the end; it seemed like she was talking to herself. *Must stop rambling*
Other than that it was a good fluffy fic that didn't fall into the cliche track.
Summary: ONE SHOT. Luna Lovegood finally realises the answer to a problem that has puzzled her for years. A short songfic about love, loss and letting go. Written for the SQ Songfic challenge.
That was excellent, and beautifully written. It was an excellent display of Luna's character and very intriguing. I haven't seen many fics with Luna portrayed as a child, but then I so rarely step outside my own little box.
P.S. 99 red baloons is about the end of the world, destruction of all man kind. I personally think it's the angstyest part of the whole story...
Lily Evans has never particularily liked James Potter, but when she decides to look at him in a different light, she may change her mind... One shot song-fic, based on the song Everywhere by Michelle Branch.
I was about to yell at you about that particular fic but luckily you answered very well to that last response so i will bite my lip on this one... I t was really good though I liked it alot!
Author's Response: hey, thanks for the review, and theres no need to yell hehe *sniff* there goes my 5 star streak though... it was good while it lasted, I can tell you that :) Im glad that you liked the story alright!
Summary: Just before the final battle with Voldemort, Harry takes Ron aside and makes a request.
That was good. A bit long but good all the same. I thouroughly enjoyed your story, and while you did have sentences that didn't make sense, the sentence fluency was pretty good overal.
You hit Ron's reactions right on target. I could just see Rupert Grint going, You're lucky it didn't.
Summary: Would you die to save a girl you hardly know? Would you step in front of her and protect her from your own father…the man who shaped you, and led you into a life that you wish you did not have? Will Draco Malfoy? We shall see. One - Shot.
While it was OOC it was well written. The flow was good, and even if it was a little soapy I must say it was a success.
So you like ink heart?
Author's Response: Yes. i do. It is an original plotline, and i allways enjoy those. You?
