House: Hufflepuff and proud to be so

I'm 29, and "History" is my first ever Harry Potter fanfiction, but I've been writing fanfic of all kinds (Star Trek, Star Wars, Buffy, Angel, Hercules, etc) since I was about.... oh, eleven. Not that it was great back then, but you know... I started writing them "professionally" when I was 16. As I said, "History" is my first fanfiction ala Potter, and is my baby. Many of my own theories are the making of this, erm... novel... because I'm sure that is how long it will be in the end. ;)

Graduating with my BFA in Graphic Design and moving to Nashville have prevented me from writing in quite some time...

Lacrima Serpentis by Insecurity

Rated: 6th-7th Years •
Summary: This story is set in the dystopian society of Wizarding England under the control of Voldemort. Fifteen years after leaving Hogwarts, Harry Potter is in hiding; he fears the words of the Prophecy and has lost the will to fight. This story tells the tale of an adult Hermione who sacrifices everything: her family, her moral beliefs and eventually her dignity, in order to save the Wizarding world. She becomes a Death Eater under the recommendation of someone she barely trusts. She struggles to find the courage and strength, but with every choice she makes she gets deeper and deeper into danger.

Chapter 33 is finally up. Thank you for your support and patience..

I don't usually go for non-canon fanfics (or Hermione/Snape, to be honest) but this sucked me in right away. You are very poetic in your writing and discriptions, and it paints a beautiful picture of not just the surroundings but the feelings and personality of Hermione as she struggles through her mission. I love this and I can't wait for you to post the rest. I was going to have Voldemort take over Azkaban as well, lol... my fanfiction is set in "real time", however.

Author's Response: Thank you! I am glad you are enjoying it so far. It is a challenging story to write. You have to sit back and think about each event and sort the feelings out in your mind. Although, at times Hermione just writes the story for me.... she takes me on the adventure and I am merely a spectator. I am glad I've won you over into the realm of non-canon ships (they are a lot more fun, in my opinion!) Good luck with your story, I am sure it will be great!

Okay... I saw that it was updated on the 17th, so I'm assuming chapter 29 has been sent in for "authorization" or whatever, and I am going crazy! MN needs to hurry up lol!

Author's Response: Yes, it does! LOL! Well, I am lucky to have some great moderators who endure my stories. And patient readers who don't get fed up with me when I frequantly get writer's block. The chapter is up now, and chapter 30 isn't going to be too long.

Squeeeeee! Two chapters in less than a week! Very good, as usual, although I was looking forward to a Snape/Hermione arguement. ;) I love that she stands up to him and calls him on stuff.

Author's Response: Hahahahaha! I do too - you go whip his ass, Hermione! But I couldn't be bothered with an arguement. I'm trying to bring them closer together but the situation their in puts huge strain on their relationship. I don't want Hermione to simply trust him unconditionally, but at the same time she is weakened by her feelings. Thanks for the review.

Yay! Can't wait for the rest! And it's good that Hermione and Sev get some alone/cuddle time... hopefully ;)

Author's Response: Yes.... cuddle time to come... well, as much as Severus likes to be cuddled. *eyes him suspiciously* Thanks for the review!

Well, this is very interesting. A little AU now that we know what happened in HBP, but I'm still loving it. Snape is such an enigma, I love reading everyone backstories on him; a lot of theories are the same, yet different.

His Best Source of Comfort by Melindaleo

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: A HBP Missing Moment. Warning: This fic is loaded with HBP spoilers, read it only after you've read canon. Harry is lying in bed going over the details of his traumatic night. He feels he is truly alone...but is he?
Reviewer: StaceyLC Signed
Date: 11/16/06 Title: Chapter 1: His Best Source of Comfort

This was very well written, and an in depth look into what Harry may have been going through after Dumbledore's death. I also liked the small scene between Dean and Seamus, because no one ever seems to write about them, and it was nice to see them in there somewhere.

Whether We Wear Masks by Seren

Summary: 'There is no black and white, Blaise.' Hermione teaches Blaise that she knows about hatred and discrimination. Warning for historical references to racism.
Reviewer: StaceyLC Signed
Date: 10/23/06 Title: Chapter 1: Whether We Wear Masks

I'm glad someone finally wrote a story showing everyone what hatred can do. I think that was Jo's point when she created the Death Eaters and made them hate Muggleborns. She wants us to think, just like you made Blaise think in this story.

The only critic I can give is that I don't think Hermione would say "dumbass", but that's it. Seriously.

The Potions Master of Azkaban. by Magical Maeve

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • Past Featured Story
Summary: Severus Snape finds himself a resident of Azkaban for his deeds and misdeeds during Voldemort's reign. A broken man, he is struggling merely to stay alive when one of the guards takes an interest in him. This is an interest that could get her into serious trouble as she tries to save the life of a man who may not want to be saved.

And I must credit the wonderful Poultrygeist for the title and Anne for her sterling beta work! Thank 'ee. :-)

Hmm... I thought I had posted a review when I read this months ago, but I guess not. I just wanted to say very well done; I haven't read any of the others in this series, but I wasn't confused at all, and I thought it flowed quite nicely. I thought your characterization of Severus was great (he is the ultimate OOC-written character in most fics).

Author's Response: Thanks for the review, and thank you for the compliments on Snape\'s character. He\'s a tough nut to crack.

Clair De Lune by Astrid Skywalker

Rated: 6th-7th Years •

It was full moon when the Dark Lord sealed a part of his soul within a magical amulet, and then broke it in half. One half was left to the faithful werewolves to guard. The other half was tossed into the impenetrable depths of time where no one but him could get it. When the first half has been found, the Order of the Phoenix selects Hermione Granger to go back into the past to search for the missing piece. What is waiting for her is a brutal task that will test her beyond her limits, and an undying love that extends beyond the boundaries of time.


No werewolves were harmed in the making of this story.

Oh... my... GOD. This fic is awesome! I have never read a Hermione/Remus fic, but you've made it (and the plot) believeable. A lot of people recommended this, and I was breezing through the nominations for QSQ and decided to go ahead and see what everyone was talking about. I love your characterizations of James and Lily. I especially like Lily not taking any of James' crap ;) Of course, James never would have fallen in love with her if she was any different.

I'm not reviewing my own story, I swear... I dunno if anyone checks this anymore, but the rest of this chapter has been posted here at MN, under the title "The History of Those We Thought We Knew"... I know a lot of people were wondering about the potion, so go find out ;)

Yes, I voted for this one, too. I honestly didn't like the one that ended up winning. I thought McGonnagal was way out of character... anyway, at least you made it into the top five. I think that this beginning is quite plausable, and you wrote it very well.

Amortentia by Cruciatus Love

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: Merope Gaunt has what seems like a flawless plan to get Tom Riddle to love her. She has everything worked out to the very last drop of Amortentia in his glass each morning. Watch as a country called Romania and a celebration of love takes it's effect on this 'perfect love.'

Written as a Term Challenge: Holidays Abroad submission for Slytherin.

Date: 08/15/06 Title: Chapter 1: Prologue

Very interesting story about what might have happened. Your writing was good; I only noticed a few errors, and Merope's sudden bursts of anger aren't really explained, but I guess you could just chalk that up to her Gaunt blood.

One thing, though: I may be wrong, perhaps in England they didn't have coffee in that time, but I'm pretty sure Tom would have known what it was.

Author's Response: Yes, *sigh*, the coffee thing has been touched upon. I momentarily forgot then that Tom was a Muggle and would know about that. Sorry...

Barty's Story by Cruciatus Love

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
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.

Reviewer: StaceyLC Signed
Date: 08/17/06 Title: Chapter 1: The Quidditch World Cup

Okay, trying this for the THIRD time...

Very interesting! I liked how you turned Winky's comments to Harry into cover ups for her reactions to Barty.

One thing, though: Would Barty have recognized Harry imeadiately? I mean, Harry was an infant when Barty was sent to Azkaban. I think it would have been better for Barty to start going off about Harry after Winky had identified him.

Other than that, good one shot!

Author's Response: Thanks, and actually, I\'m pretty sure that Voldemort would have described Harry is some way, or Barty would know what he looked like from memories and such. But thanks for the review!

What's Left of Me by annie

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: After a year in Azkaban, the day of Draco Malfoy's execution has finally arrived. As he makes the long journey from his prison cell to the execution room, he reflects upon what was and what could have been.
Reviewer: StaceyLC Signed
Date: 11/16/06 Title: Chapter 1: What's Left of Me

Very nicely written, and quite poetic. It really showed the complete change of Draco from what he was, to being the ultimately obediant prisoner, up until the very end.

Toll This Bell by Noldo

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: Five very different careers for Sirius Black. (Wartime, though, is always the same.)
Reviewer: StaceyLC Signed
Date: 09/11/06 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

You asked specifically for a review for "Toll This Bell", so here I am, and I am glad I read it. I can totally see Sirius going from job to job, not really knowing where his career is or where he is, for that matter. Sirius seemed destined to be a drifter, and after Azkaban, he was kind of forced into it. I really liked this, and I think it personified Sirius very well.

Winning Eternal Glory by Cruciatus Love

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: What would happen if instead of Harry Potter participating in the challenge for eternal glory, it was Tom Riddle instead. Watch as the heir of Slytherin find his way through rows, columns, tasks and obstacles to win the recognition he know he deserves.

Written as a Gauntlet Maze Challenge entry by Cruciatus Love of Slytherin.

Reviewer: StaceyLC Signed
Date: 08/17/06 Title: Chapter 1: The Maze

I'm assuming that the Rabastan that was killed was the father of the Rabastan Lestrange of Harry's time. Which means he would have had Rudolphus and Rabastan before he left school. Or, you could be changing history to complete the Gauntlet, which I completely understand, because I did the second one and I know it can be rough LOL.

You did a good job on this. I couldn't really find any mistakes, except for when Tom didn't want to harm the Clabbarts, I thought that was a bit out of character considering he killed the Troll and then proceeded to kill Rabastan. I can't really criticize much, because as I said, I did Gauntlet 2 and I know sometimes it's difficult because of the tasks.

Actually, after reading a Maze one, I'm glad I passed on it and did the Journey to St. Mungo's one instead. It sounds like this one was insane haha

Author's Response: Yes, I rather thought the first Gauntlet was a bit mreo trickey then the second, but I\'m glad you liked it. And, actually, Rabastan isn\'t in Harry\'s time. It\'s Rodolphus that we see in the books. So I sort of just killed him off.

Iduna by Gryffinpuff

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Iduna Snape is worried about her brother. He's been different this summer. Changing. She feels as though she's lost her best friend. Can she do anything to save him?
Reviewer: StaceyLC Signed
Date: 08/01/06 Title: Chapter 1: One-Shot

Sad, but also very interesting and different. Severus Snape is my favorite character, and you have come up with an interesting way to show how he could have possibly become the man he is now. I like your descriptions; it shows that you put a lot of time and effort into your writing. It also touches on the "love" subject, which is obviously a theme in the HP books. Idula's love for her brother caused her to remain home that night, and yes she lost her life, but she did do what she wanted - she brought that spark back in Severus, if only a little. Good job!

Author's Response: Thanks! Would you be shocked to hear I wrote this in less than a day? It just came to me and wouldn\'t stop nagging until I got it down on paper =) Glad you liked it, thanks for reading!

Born on the Streets by Cruciatus Love

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: A young woman tells the tale of how she started her life completely alone with no one to turn to, and ends it the same way. She describes how she worked her way up the mountain to find everything she ever wanted, or could ever love, and how she was pushed back down it into the same place she started from. Listen to her as she shows you the story of her doomed life.

Written by Cruciatus Love of Slytherin for the June/July Monthly Challenge option three.
Reviewer: StaceyLC Signed
Date: 08/17/06 Title: Chapter 1: Born on the Streets

Wow, this was really cool. I have read "Amortentia" as well, so it was interesting to see Tom and Merope's relationship through someone else's point of view. It's also kind of weird to think of Tom actually being in love with someone. Strange... Voldemort can't stand love, though it seems it's what both his parents wanted so much.

I noticed just one capitalization error, but other than that, it was perfect.

Author's Response: Yes, at the end of the Epilogue of AMortentia I mention how it was odd that someone who despised love would come from a mother who yearned for it so much. Thanks for the review!

Through the Eyes of an Onlooker by Cruciatus Love

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: The House of Black may look beautifully decorated and filled with life through the eyes of someone who had never lived there, but when two boys have spent their entire childhood suffering the pain their family gave them, this same house looks only melancholy and depressing.

Reviewer: StaceyLC Signed
Date: 08/17/06 Title: Chapter 1: That Fateful Night

I liked how you made Regulus seem like his brother on the inside, but playing a role on the outside to please his family. I sort of think Draco is like that, actually. I thought the diaglogue between Regulus and Sirius could have really heated up, but I your descriptions of the house and the boys' feelings were excellent.

Author's Response: Thanks. I always do better with description then dialogue...
