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....

What Better Way by MagEd

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: I hadn't seen him since I was eleven, but he had a rather distinct look about him. It was hard, after all, to forget that black hair that stuck up in the back and the bright green eyes behind those glasses. And the scar — I had always thought it neat to have a scar shaped like a lightening bolt.

Jane Martin sees the odd, quiet boy she went to primary school with years ago in a jewellery shop and she's shocked to see how much things have changed for the boy with taped glasses and baggy clothes. *one-shot*

Very nice. I think you've got Harry's shyer side down, and I like the things you have Janie remembering from primary school days. She's a very good OC. And obviously she needs a husband. Have you considered marrying her off to one of the unattached wizards... Hmm...let's think... who's available? Makes a difference if you are canon-compliant with epi or not... *wanders off thinking of how you could do this...*

Author's Response: Thanks very much! I'm glad you liked Janie -- there's always a fine line when it comes to OCs. And as for who she could be married off to . . . hmm. . . . ;)

It's all about Potential by Heir_of_Slytherin

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: When Draco Malfoy's bullying leaves Neville broken in their second year at Hogwarts, it's up to a well meaning, and often misunderstood Prefect to try to pick up the peices, proving no-one else can tell you who you truly are.
Reviewer: ProfPosky Signed
Date: 09/23/09 Title: Chapter 1: It's all about Potential

I am absolutely wracking my brain trying to figure out who this prefect is. Have we met him, do we know him.... He always seems ot be there for Neville? Always knows his name? What am I missing here....

Author's Response: I'm so sorry! I didn't realise people were confused about my character... Well, first of all she's a girl (I know I didn't make that apparent, but that's because I'm planning another one with this character which reveals her more feminine side). Second,she's not a character in the books; I searched all through the books and internet and I couldn't find who were the other prefects with Percy in Harry's second year, so I made one up! And third, she's not really an individual as such, but she's more like the personification of the average disadvantaged person; being a Slytherin, she's been judged as unapproachable and, well, bitchy, by others without them even interacting with her, but her true self still prevails because she chose to rise above all those preconceptions and be who she really is. Which is exactly why she cares for Neville so much; she can see his potential to be great, even if he doesn't. OK, well I hope that helped! If you have anymore questions, don't hesitate to ask!

Fascinating Facts About Scorpius Malfoy by Kerichi

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •


Rose used a blank journal to list practical information about the boy she intended to bring home for holiday and pass off as her boyfriend: Scorpius’ favourite colour, his favourite food. As their pretend relationship became real, the entries became longer and more intimate. And then one day—to her horror—she misplaced the journal.

The Elder Tree by the opaleye

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • Past Featured Story
Summary: It would have been no surprise to see Vernon Dursley sitting on the frosty concrete of the empty playground one winter evening. It was not a cold winter that year. In fact, the snow had not yet fallen and Christmas was two days away.

Vernon returns to his childhood haunt after his first term at Smeltings only to encounter a strange old woman. Who is she? And what on earth is a Muggle?

This is the opaleye of Slytherin writing for The Untold Story Challenge in the Great Hall on the Beta Forums .

Nominated in the 2010 QSQ Awards for Best General Story.

Date: 09/25/09 Title: Chapter 1: The Elder Tree

Well, that explains a few things... except why the ministry wizards couldn't catch up with an 11 year old boy...

Now THAT is another untold story!

Author's Response: Haha, yes, that is another untold story! I guess they just could not be bothered. I mean a young boy going on about how he was terrorised by a witch is hardly a security threat in my opinion. I think they would probably be more interested in catching the witch quite frankly. Thanks for the review!!!

One's Weaker Self by sch

Rated: 6th-7th Years •

This story follows Cedric as he tries to hide his condition, deal with his self alienation, and ultimately find love through the only girl real to him.

Blood On My Hands by Gmariam

Yes, very different from your usual style, and I have to say you do deliver the dark and the angst!

Author's Response: A very belated thank you, dear! I really appreciate you stopping by to read the story. Did you happen to see Sandy's banner around that inspired it? I'm glad I could stretch myself enough to deliver some dark and angst, I don't do that often and it's important to be able to write out of the box, I think. Thanks again!! ~Gina :)

September Death by A H

The Chance and the Black by welshdevondragon

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: "Alphard,

I love you. I love you. I love you. And you know I would never waste those words. I would never say those words if I didn’t mean them.

This is the letter Alphard Black is reading at the breakfast table with his sister Walburga watching him very, very closely.

Why did Alphard Black leave all his money to his errant nephew Sirius?

Might it have been because the letter he read one morning in the early fifties was from a Muggleborn?
Reviewer: ProfPosky Signed
Date: 10/14/09 Title: Chapter 1: The Chance and the Black

Wow! You packed a great deal into this! I think he more likely left his money to Sirius because Sirius had guts than because Sirius had no problem with Muggleborns, but maybe that was what you meant...

Author's Response: Thank you! I meant both- that Sirius had no problem with Muggle-borns and had the guts to say so to his family and the world, whereas Alphard did not. Still glad you enjoyed it :)

Wicked Witches by ahattab33

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • Past Featured Story

Luna Lovegood takes a trip into the village near her home with her mother, expecting only to enjoy the afternoon and a pleasant walk. Instead, she sees a Frankenstiln, stumbles upon a potential egging, and learns the grave truth about wicked witches.

On October 31, 1989, Luna Lovegood learns the truth about the strange Muggle holiday called Halloween.

This is ahattab33 of Hufflepuff writing for the Halloween Challenge, Halloween Explained prompt.

Reviewer: ProfPosky Signed
Date: 10/27/09 Title: Chapter 1: On Wicked Witches and Bowtruckle Spirits

Very interesting,in part because Luna seems more "normal" for her age here. It makes you wonder just what losing her mother did to/for her.

Author's Response:

YEA! *Throws confetti!* I had a very distinct picture in my head of Luna before her mother's death, as well as a mother for Luna that was much more down to earth that one might imagine (hence the name Judy). Emma (my beta) very gently pointed out that my one-shot did not afford room to explore this for this challenge, so I will probably write something centered around her mother in the future. But the idea was that her mother's death had an effect not only on Luna but on her father as well...my original also had him toned down some.

I'm not sure if you thought I accomplished this here in this piece or if she was simply a little OOC, but if it made you wonder of the effect her mother's death had on her...mission accomplished. :)

Thank you very very much for the read and the review.


Contemplating Lilies by Equinox Chick

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: Apparating to Hogsmeade from his Uncle Alphard's funeral, Sirius Black is expecting to see his friends already ensconced in the Three Broomsticks. They'd promised that they'd help him send off his favourite uncle in style. But after a ridiculous prank, the Marauders are stuck in detention, leaving Sirius alone and contemplating lilies.

Will anyone else raise a glass to Alphard?

Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling and I doubt that surprises you.

Thank you to Kara (Karaley Dargen) for beta'ing this story.

SOOO disappointed...I was rather hoping for a good shag on the bar or something. Ah, well....

Author's Response: Now, now, Thea. That would be a Professors rated fic. Mind you, I think Sirius was rather hoping for a good shag on the bar as well. He should take Rosmerta out one day. *evil plot bunny approacheth and we know what bunnies like to do* Thank you ~Carole~

The Mistake of a Lifetime by mudbloodproud

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: “Lily is pregnant.”

Those words sent shivers of dread through Remus Lupin. The dread came not from the fact they were in the midst of a war, but from a secret, a secret he could never tell James.

This story is the result of my evil muses. I hold no responsibility for the content.

I do not own anything you recognise in this story. It all belongs to J.K. Rowling. I am just thankful to play in her world for a little while.

I wish to thank my friend, Bine, {luinrina} for her wonderful and quick beta help on this story. Her comments made this story better than what it was to start with.

Hm...How would she necessarily know?

And...oh, Remus, we would really all prefer you as Harry's dad, even if maybe he did need some idiot genes to do what he did...

Author's Response: Well, let's just say without detail, she is only 6 weeks pregnant, and the last full moon was 8 weeks ago. Enough said. Thanks for your thoughts. My ebil muses had fun with this. Terri

Peace in Heaven by Equinox Chick

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: After decades of hatred, a friendship begins...

Severus Snape wakes up after Nagini's bite in a hospital bed. He is dead, of that there is no doubt, but he cannot move on as the others who fell in battle have.


I am Equinox Chick from Hufflepuff and this is my entry in the November in-house banner/story challenge.

Author's Note: For this competiition, the writers in Hufflepuff picked banners designed by other Puffs and wrote a story based on the picture, title and catchphrase. The banner I chose was by Terri (mudbloodproud).

Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling. I think it's safe to assume that you all know that.

I am indebted to the truly wonderful (and QSQ award winning) Emma (Amortentia x) who has beta'd this fic. Not only did she sort out my punctuation, but she had some extremely good suggestions throughout the story.

And than kyou for posting this right now - I have to say that I have had a hell o fa day and needed a decent fic or two to survive...

Aberforth Dumbledore: A Love that Dare not Bleat its Name by Equinox Chick

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: Aberforth Dumbledore was once infamous throughout the land for casting Inappropriate Charms on goats. He never responded to the claims, never gave his side of the story and lived with an odd reputation for decades.

But now he wants to set the record straight before Rita Skeeter has a chance to twist things furthur awry.

This is Equinox Chick from Hufflepuff and this is my entry in the Stirring category for the Winter Snows 09 competition on the MNFF Beta Boards.

I am not JK Rowling. Does that honestly surprise anyone!

This story won the 2010 QSQ Best Humour Fic - I'm still in shock.

Always...But Not Who You Think by hestiajones

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •

I thank my LJ pals for their love, support and sense of humour.

Date: 03/20/10 Title: Chapter 1: Always...

Oh, come on now, if you're going to ship these two, even for a joke, you really ought to make love win out in the end...

And really, wouldn't he hate James as much as he did for marrying Lily if he HAD been in love with him? Not that I ship these two. Ultimately, I end up shipping Severus and an OC no one has heard about yet, but still, logically, this could work. And not even a kiss...

Author's Response: Believe me, I thought of having them kiss, but my fingers just wouldn't type the words. Egad! (Plus, I'm sure someone we both know has a smutty version festering in her mind.)

Yeah, that's Snape. A bit jealous and possessive. He'd definitely have hated James later on, even if he knew he had had his part to play in their break-up.

Thanks for the review. It gave me a laugh. :D


Carnal Desires of a Rat and a Dog by Nitwit Blubber Oddment Tweak x

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • Past Featured Story
Summary: "Pettigrew... that fat little boy who was always tagging around after them at Hogwarts?"*

Did Peter Pettigrew constantly tag after his superior friends? Or was he in fact equal to the reckless, confident Sirius Black? Perhaps they were more alike than anyone could have guessed...

I loved this!
Sorry, I've tried to write you more than this, but Carole really said it all.

I fully support this ship because I am positive Sirius was hot for James, but, being a hormone driven teenager, would have settled for Peter in the meantime.

Now, twistie twistie if you are willing to go AU - what if this love blossoms, has an ennobling affect on Peter, and keeps him out of Voldemort's clutches....

Or what if Peter succumbed because, originally, he somehow thought he was protecting Sirius?

See, you made me think! Good on you!

Author's Response: Oooh, wow, thank you! Wahey, another deluded - I mean dedicated - follower :P

Hooray for making people think! That's always a good thing :D

Thanks for your lovely review - I'm so glad you enjoyed reading this fic (:

Snape's Revelation by Emerald Fox

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: This story is a small twist off from Harry and Luna's excursion into Ravenclaw Tower at the end of the seventh book. Their struggles to find the diadem of Ravenclaw are interrupted by a slight turn when they are discovered by Snape rather than Professor McGonagall in their search. What is written in the tone of a beautiful death scene in the book bascially becomes an exploration of possibilities of what may have happened had Snape been granted those last moments with Harry, which he so desperately wanted, but which were so rudely snatched away from him at the last moment. Harry's shock in the book at finally discovering Snape's secrets, along with the knowledge that he must die, are noticeably more poignant with the edge of Snape telling him face to face. How is Snape going to give him his last secret?
Reviewer: ProfPosky Signed
Date: 06/15/10 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Very nice. My bggest question is why he doesn't tell Snape about the Diadem.

Author's Response: A very good question, and one that, I'll admit, didn't occur to me until now. I suppose the reason it did not occur to me is due to Harry's inane personality. He revels in working alone ( a parallel to Snape's character) and his loyalty once gained is for life. In spite of the fact that he is convinced of Snape's loyalty, he does not know the extent of Snape's information, and rightly so, because Dumbledore had not discussed the ordeal of Voldemort's horcruxes with Snape, regardless of the fact that Snape was to provide Harry with the sword of Gryffindor. Thus it seems ill-fitting that Harry should be so candid, especially considering his reluctance to even tell Ron and Hermione. In addition we need to take into account Harry's frame of mind at the moment. He has just been informed of his impending death, and it would not be the first time that he reacts with rash behavior. He might have merely tried to glean from Snape information of the diadem's whereabouts i imagine, but as Snape is not connected to Ravenclaw house the attempt would most likely be futile. Thanks for the feedback!

Fred and George's Busy Day by Northumbrian

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
WINNER of the BEST GENERAL story – Quicksilver Quills Awards 2010.
In the weeks and months after their eldest brother’s wedding Fred and George Weasley continued to run their business. Two decent honest and respectable businessmen, they had no involvement at all in any illicit conduct. They certainly didn’t get involved in any anti-Voldemort activities. Definitely not. No. Not them. Never. They wouldn’t. Honestly.
Reviewer: ProfPosky Signed
Date: 03/28/10 Title: Chapter 1: Prologue: A Call to Arms

My first question, and perhaps the most obviousl one, is why these people haven't tried to join the Order. Is it a matter of not knowing how? And is there a hint that the boys were headed to the Cauldron deliberately? It seems quite a coincidence, otherwise...

I like the concept and am interested in seeing where you take this.

Author's Response: The first answer is, I'm not certain who is in charge of the Order, Kingsley? Contacting an auror on the run would be difficult. A hint? "‘Thanks for coming, guys,’ Katie said. ‘We need your help.’" Keep reading. -N-
