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....

I have to say I can't see where you're going with this, which is a compliment.

Very interesting! I think you've got Hermione pretty well - a scarred Hermione, but clearly well motivated. Draco is arrogant Draco...I love the horror you've put into the midnight reliving of the dead...

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm trying to keep them as IC as I can, given what we know of canon and what has happened to them at the point where it all goes AU. Writing canon characters is a new challenge for me - I usually write OCs - so it's good to know that so far, so good! I was caught by the idea of Hogwarts ghosts rising up at midnight, reliving the war every night for those few moments. I'm glad that worked. Thanks!

Well, I'd say you've made him snarky enough, all right. A regular Scrooge, in fact. I love the way he managed to give the boys a punishment in front of Molly. I really don't think he'd get away with using that potion on Granger, or that he would try - I may be naive, but I think that would be beneath him.

Besides, she'd only resort to throwing her hand higher in the air and scribbling her answers on notepaper...surely he must know that...

Author's Response:

Hello ProfPosky,

glad you enjoyed Snape's sarky wit! And also the twins' punishment - that seems to be going down quite well with readers, so I'll need to thank my muse for that!

I see your point about him not using the potion on Hermione - but I don't necessarily agree with it. After all, he spent years picking on Harry, not to mention his consistent, outrageous and completely inexplicable bullying of Neville. If he can act with such unfounded hostility against a child, I really don't think using a (relatively harmless) potion on a student who irritates him is beneath him.

However, take heart - I don't believe he would have concocted the potion just to use it on poor Hermione. Testing its effectiveness on her would merely have been an added bonus... *chuckle*

Thanks very much for R & R-ing, m'dear,


Kara's Aunty ;)

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.

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. . . . ;)

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!

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.

NEveille's grandmother does seem a bit out of character, but perhaps having Neville demonstrate what a terrific and brave wizard he is took some of the need to be stern off her? Anyway, so far an interesting view of a character not seen as much as we might have liked. I LOVE that she has named her vulture...they are pretty big birds, too, I 'd imagine the hat would wiggle...

I am not so sure about George. The fight with Percy, yes. Being as self-aware as you have him? In my experience, men will do almost anything to stay out of the company of their own emotions. Seems a little too self-analytical, but then, pranksters can have hidden depths...

waiting for next chapter...

Author's Response:

Hello ProfPosky,

Hmm. Augusta a bit out of character? Not really. After all, we know her mainly from Nev's pov, and other than that, she only has a couple of (rather brief) lines. JKR did say that underneath her overbearing manner, she has a heart of gold, so I like to portray that side of her, too. You are quite right about Nev's influence: now that the Second Wizarding War (with Voldemort anyway) is over, I like to think that she may be letting her hair down a bit and be more apt to show her softer side, because she is secure in his achievements and needn't fear the loss of him to Death Eaters as she did her son and daughter-in-law.

And I'm delighted that you liked Augusta naming her hat so much! It does seem so very like her, somehow (eccentric, but endearing)!! 

As for George, well, I have to disagree with you there :( How could he help but be aware, with the amount of grief and pain that's consuming him? It's the only force that drives him at the moment. Fred is gone and he is struggling not only with that loss, but with his own identity. He's trying to relate to the world as simply George, when it used to be Fred and George. How can any of us know how we would cope in a situation like that? Grief isn't textbook, it's individual. We don't all react the same. This story is just (like all fanfic) one theory, amidst many, of how he may have coped. But the story isn't over yet, so I hope it can convince you that his reactions may not be so very ooc :)

 Thanks for R & R-ing,

Kara's Aunty :)

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 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.
