I am old. Older than Jo. Not quite as old as Voldemort.

In fact, I am exactly Marauder-aged. Which might be why I don't read much Marauder-era. Can't compete with Lily....

A lovely story! I can see you respect Neville as a character.

Author's Response: Hee! I hadn\'t thought of that, but yes, I rather do. Check out the rest of my Neville stories -- this one\'s all right, but my others are better! \"The Unknown\", which might not be up yet, is quite good (which sounds like shameless pimping, but I\'m really proud of it).

Hermione's Horcrux by Ravensgryff

Reviewer: ProfPosky Signed
Date: 01/30/08 Title: Chapter 4: Chapter 2: The Horcrux

A very interesting look at things from HErmione's point of view - very literary, as she would be, and a keen insight into what the horcrux would find her exploitable weakness. You caried a them throughout which comes to fruition in this last chapter, doing a masterful job of avoiding being sidetracked by events and details which would not have contributed to your story and it's meaning. Fabulous job!

This story made me cry. (In a good way)

If I could make any suggestion for making it even better, it would be that
I would like to see the people actually thanking Dobby, rather than being told about it. It would improve and already good story...

Nice touch, byt he way, having the Devil Appear to Dobby as Lucius...

Author's Response: I\'ll definitely look into your suggestion but as I\'m writing another (and considerably longer) entry for the Autumn Challenge, it will have to go on the back burner for now. As for Lucius, he\'s just so perfectly devious that I couldn\'t resist. Thanks for the review!


Summary: Albus Potter is still worried about which house he will be sorted into, but on the train he gets to know someone unexpected, whose own personality is even more unbelievable than the friendship between them. Will the immediate bond help the boys be placed into their best-suited houses?

I like this very much. I like that Albus is open minded and I feel you carry on his characterization well from what little we get in the book. If you don't usually write stories of this sort, maybe you should more often!


Summary: The Dursleys have left Privet Drive and are in hiding with Hestia Jones and Dedalus Diggle. Hestia and Mr. Dursley are constantly fighting, Petunia is avoiding the wizards at all costs, and Dedalus is trying to make them all the best of friends. Meanwhile, Dudley discovers he has an interest in Harry's world, but his parents are less than pleased when they find out.

Wow! Is that Dean Thomas on the Run???

I like this story because I feel you are starting where Dudley was and bringing him along. There are moments when I feel you are rushing a bit, trying to fit things in, and that it sometimes leads to you telling things it would be more fun to be shown, but basically I like the story and always read it right away when I get an update!

Author's Response: Glad you like it! :)

Reviewer: ProfPosky Signed
Date: 08/02/09 Title: Chapter 9: The Wall of Questions

Yes, this needed to be that long.

It certainly seems as if Dudley is changing, and it is believable in the sense that his parents catering to his every whim was what made him nasty to begin with. Now that he is having to come into his own a bit, he has a spine, not just a stick to hit people with. They are lucky he is not more like Snape - were he that unforgiving of the Weasley brothers, this would all be a lot harder for the Deadalus and Hestia.

I wonder if Dudley is a Wizard and this is why the door sealed itself?

I like the little moment of shame you gave him, where he feels badly about making fun of Harry about Cedric's death, but I am also a little surprised that he is not a bit astounded at all the fuss about his cousin, who was, after all, probably nothing special in Dudley's eyes to begin with, except for having saved him from the dementors.

I think he's just put more effort into getting all these bits of new straight than he's put into all his previous years of schooling combined.

I am really enjoying this and hope you update soon!

Author's Response: I'm glad someone mentioned that he should be more surprised! That was one thing that I tried to put into this chapter that just didn't come off right. It's actually part of why the wait was so long. :/ Obviously, he would begin to understand how important Harry is from what Dedalus and Hestia have been telling him, but not to the degree that it is portrayed in the articles. Anyway, I'm done ranting, so thanks for the review! :)

wow! I love it! I'm certain we're going to find out Dudley is a Wizard, and I anticipate a riotous scene at the hospital.

Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you like it! 

Reviewer: ProfPosky Signed
Date: 06/18/11 Title: Chapter 14: Why Duh Ya Harve A Rand, Doodley?

I did enjoy it. I love the whole concept of this story, and I am itching to see what Dudley will do now that he's discovered magic.

I do have to chuckle at the argument about how to teach him - I can SO see that happening...


A Fresh Start by Hypatia
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 314]

Summary: Scorpius Malfoy was brought up in the knowledge that he came from an old pure-blood family. Hogwarts is going to teach him a great deal more. Will he be able to rise above his family’s tainted past, or will history repeat itself?

Interesting turn of events. I think that is exactly how most of the adults would behave.

Draco made really good points, but somehow I think I need a little more about what he is doing. He seems more sketched than the others, even though he is a bit more developed earlier.

Reviewer: ProfPosky Signed
Date: 10/15/07 Title: Chapter 3: Pride and Prejudice

Poor Scorpius, and how perfect that it is Neville, the least likely Gryffindor, to announce so firmly that everyone there belonged in that house. And really, any Malfoy willing NOT to be in Slythering clearly belongs in Gryffindor for Bravery. After all, he will have to face his parents with this.

I do think The Hat should have hung tough on Bernard, though.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I loved making Neville head of Gryffindor, I think if anyone has a chance of understanding the pressures of \"family duty\" it\'s him. As for Bernard, like most bullies, he has his own demons to face. Thanks for the review!


So Kreacher Came Home by Vindictus Viridian
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 6]

Summary: Different people regard the nonhumans that share their homes in different ways. Though Sirius never felt any affection for Kreacher, his brother Regulus was willing to make sacrifices for his elf.

Written for the "Losing A Loved One" prompt in the Full Moon Challenge, though this is a tale of almost-loss. I am from Ravenclaw House. The title is from p. 197 of Deathly Hallows, 2007, Scholastic, US edition.

Interesting , the way you have Regulus's thoughts about this developing. You have built a nice basis for the love between him and Kreachur here.

Do you think he would really have recognised that his act was one of youthful stupidity, rather than mere bog-standard stupidity?

I like how it moves from the things any kid would want to the one most important thing.

Author's Response: Thanks! I think Ron did some growing up in the seventh book, and finally realized that some things are more important than others :-P


Summary: He is building walls, and they must be the strongest the world has ever seen to protect him. Yes, they will obscure the sun and hide the hills, but he still will build. He must.

Good. I suppose you could get it a little tighter, a little more compressed meaning, in places like "T\than any other" and "so that" but that is my taste, yours may differ. I dod think a better title could add significantly to the impact.

And I only bothered commenting because I thought it was good to begin with...

It also raises the question of why she left him...

It's a sweet idea. I can see so many ways an author could take this idea. But then again, I could complicate water, and water is fine just the way it is. ;-)

Fun read...


Summary: Priscilla Love, a sixth year at Hogwarts during Harry Potter's final year, is a hormonal, profanity-loving, teenage girl who has the hots for Seamus Finnigan and the hates for Lavender Brown. Her best friend Valerie is a shawl-wearing binge-emotionalist who could name a thousand uses for toadstools at a moment’s notice. Phoebe and Selene Rowle are notorious for their father’s crimes as a Death Eater, but not for any wrongs they committed (unless it’s for being the most mysterious set of twins Hogwarts has ever seen). So what, exactly, do these four have in common?

An attack on Dean Thomas leaves him severely injured and left in the care of St. Mungo's, where he learns that he can no longer communicate normally. He has secrets of where the Dark Lord's Horcruxes are, but without being able to talk or write, the only way he can communicate is through his art.

It's up to Harry, Ron, Hermione, and a dispatch of Ministry Officials to find these Horcruxes. It's up to Priscilla Love to tell her point of view of these events as she works with her peers to understand what the bloody hell is going on. Oh, and she must win Seamus' heart (and unoccupied side of the bed).

It’s a matter of life and death – for everyone involved.
