Hello, I'm Hermione_Rocks, though you may call me Anna, or D.E, or Mrs. Snape . . . whatever flies your kite. I'm a high school student who is hopelessly obsessed with many things, such as Harry Potter, musicals (current favorite is Sweeney Todd), books/reading, various Internet web-sites, and food.

As you can probably tell, I have an incurable love for writing fan-fiction. Would I do better to be working on original fiction? Probably. But at the moment, I just want to have fun with writing. One day I hope to be published, but I'm really not in any rush. Right now, I just want to enjoy all this. :)

I hope you find something you'd like to read while you're here, and please leave a review to let me know your thoughts. I'm always looking for feedback, good or bad.

I'm Not That Girl by WhatsInAName

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 12 Reviews
Summary: Luna thought she had found the right one for her, but in the end, all he gave her was the pain of love lost.





One-shot songfic set to I'm Not That Girl from the musical Wicked.
Reviewer: Hermione_Rocks Signed
Date: 02/05/07 Title: Chapter 1: One-shot

I had to read this when I saw it was to a Wicked song, as I am also a big fan. :D It was very good, although I'm not a Draco/Luna shipper. The lyrics fit very well too. I would have liked a little more detail about their relationship though. But overall, it was really nice, great job!

Author's Response: Go Wicked fans! *dances* *notices stares* What?

I\'m actually considering rewriting this whole thing, the relationship part being only one reason. I hope it turns out better than it is now.

Thanks for the review! ~Sam



Shades of Black by Striped Candycane

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 28 Reviews Past Featured Story
Summary: The three Black sisters are very different. But once a week, for a brief moment, they become very much the same...Pre-Hogwarts.


Reviewer: Hermione_Rocks Signed
Date: 12/05/07 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Oh, wow. Amazing. This is such a short piece, but you managed to squeeze so much into it at the same time. I loved how you contrasted between the three sisters, but also showed how united they were. I adore the image of them all standing together, holding hands, about to enter the room. And I also like that you didn't say what they were doing: I did wonder, but I'm glad you left it mysterious. Excellent job! :)



The Birth of Bravery by crazy_purple_hp_freak

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 7 Reviews
Summary: Two brothers closely bound in blood,

They walked two different paths,

Two choices made (opposing goals) –

One bloody aftermath.








Of blood ties and bravery, and of breaking free.





Written by crazy_purple_hp_freak of Slytherin house, for the Ballad Challenge.

Wow! That was really great. You kept the rhythm consistant, and told the story wonderfully. I loved how you showed that the brothers' stories started out together, veered off differently, and then in the end came together again. Good luck in the competition! :)

Author's Response: Thanks for the review Anna! I\'m glad you liked it! *huggles* ~Suzie



Fallen by StaceyLC

Rated: 6th-7th Years • 29 Reviews
Summary: The deathly hallows of a man’s mind are a dark and dangerous place; a place which one can be easily lost if they walk the line between light and dark too carelessly. It’s easy to fall in, to lose yourself. You may think you’ve not strayed too deeply into that gaping maw of death and despair until you look back up from the hole and can no longer see the light. And then… then it is too late. You will be truly gone.

I followed your gorgeous banner ;), and didn't regret it for a second. Wow. This was just amazing. I loved how you showed Harry fall into darkness, and the way you dispersed Severus' quotes was really great. Very chilling and thought-provoking entry. Good luck in the challenge!

Author's Response: Thank you! I added the quotes in between as an afterthought once I realized that they were pretty good paragraph starters ;)



Nothing Else by KASK

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 9 Reviews
Summary: Severus Snape has never been one to dream, or trust dreams. That is, until he has one involving Lily Evans. Something about this dream makes his wonder if it could happen, even if implausible. The only question is -- will it be too late to change the outcome?

Well, I can't stand the pairing of Severus/Lily (and still can't :P), but I did really enjoy this story. Severus' feelings were portrayed very well, and I like how you brought him around to the conclusion that he had nothing else. Nice work, and good luck in the challenge!

Author's Response: Thank you! Hehe, I love Severus/Lily, but only when it\'s clear that Lily did love James, cos I\'d take a Lily/James over Lily/Sev any day!

Minerva McGonagall and the Half-Blood Prince by DailyProphetEditor

Rated: Professors • 64 Reviews
Summary:



What do you do when the man who murdered your best friend turns up and claims to be innocent?




What do you do when you realise you slowly start trusting him again?




What do you do when you fall in love against your will – with a man half your age?





This is a McGonagall/Snape fic about trust, friendship, shame, and love. It’s canon compliant otherwise; set immediately after HBP except for a mini prologue.




This fic also is my attempt at continuing the at Book 7, so you also have the war against Voldemort, the search for the Horcruxces, and the way they run Hogwarts during that year included in the plot.




Side characters like Ron, Hermione, Moody, Lupin, Tonks, Neville, Augusta Longbottom, Draco, Hagrid, and the rest of the Weasleys get their fair share of the story.




It is done novel style, which means that some apparently minor issues mentioned in early chapters will become important in later chapters. I do recommend you read them in the right order.




To be on the safe side, I rated this “Professors” because it contains violence, sexuality, character deaths, and torture - although none of them described in detail.




Also I now have added an AU warning - my story contains two detals that we will not see happening in "Deathly Hallows". I made the Sorting Hat a Horcrux, and Arthur Weasley will become interim Minister for Magic in my last chapter. Well, I wrote this before those rumors were shot down as non-canon by JKR, and I'd not like to change my plot now - so, sadly, my story has become a bit AU. You have been warned ;-)

Date: 05/01/07 Title: Chapter 4: Going Too Far

This is a really interesting story so far, and surprisingly believable. You've managed to keep both Severus and Minerva very in character, and the plot is intriguing.

I have one nit-pick for this chapter, and that is that you typed Slazar Slytherin, instead of Salazar Slytherin. Other than that, great job! :)

Author's Response: Thank you for leaving me this wonderful review! That is just the thing I wanted to hear... my goal was to keep them both in character as much as possible. Thank you also for pointing out that typo; I will see to chaningin that - it\'s just the thing that is not supposed to happen with 4 betas, but I guess sometimes we all do a sloppy job. Hope you\'ll like the rest of my fic as well.



Reviewer: Hermione_Rocks Signed
Date: 05/29/07 Title: Chapter 8: Acceptance

*jumps* Yay! They're together? But will it last...? >.> Still a great chapter, though. :)

Author's Response: You\'ll see ;-)



Reviewer: Hermione_Rocks Signed
Date: 05/27/07 Title: Chapter 6: A Report on War and Love

Ah! Severus said he loved her directly this time! I didn't expect that at all. But that's good. ;) So, another lovely chapter, great work!

Author's Response: Thanks again! Wow, it\'s great to get those chapter-by-chapter comments - of course that doesn\'t mean I expect you to review every single chapter ;.) But it\'s nice to get detailed feedback. Thanks for reading and reviewing, I do hope you\'ll like the rest of the fic.



Reviewer: Hermione_Rocks Signed
Date: 06/01/07 Title: Chapter 10: The Killing Curse

Ahhh...for a moment I actually thought you were going to kill Severus! Then again, maybe you still are. O.O Anyway, I think this was probably my favorite chapter yet. It was so...powerful. I mean, love really does conquer all, even despite whatever barriers (like age) may come up. And that's really just wonderful that you were able to do that with this story! Mkay, I'm rambling. In conclusion, another amazing chapter, great job! :D

Author's Response: Oh, I don\'t mind the rambling the least bit... ;-) No, really, thanks for the review. This one was the hardest chapter to write (well, besides \"Acceptance\"), I thought I\'d never get it done right - so I\'m really glad folks liked it.



Reviewer: Hermione_Rocks Signed
Date: 05/29/07 Title: Chapter 7: Denial

It's so funny how Severus and Minerva are dealing with their feelings here, although I have no problem seeing either of them acting like they had a disease. ;) I also found the parts with Augusta Longbottom funny, and both of them acting like little school girls again. Teehee.

Author's Response: Thank you again... Yeah, I like Augusta, too. I know it\'s not canon, only a few little hints there that McG and Augusta might know each other, but I can so see them get on fabulously as friends...



Reviewer: Hermione_Rocks Signed
Date: 05/22/07 Title: Chapter 5: Fighting Passion

Oooh, she told him how she felt. Poor Minerva. Severus remained cryptic as ever in his reply, and I liked that; you still manage to keep them both very much in character. Great job. :D

Author's Response: Thank you, keeping them (remotely) in character was the big task I set meself... Glad you liked this chapter, it\'s one of my favorites, too. Can\'t wait to see how you will like the rest...

*squee* Aw, I hoped you would put them together! They both deserve to be happy together!!

Author's Response: *squee* LOL! Of course I would put them toghether, I\'m a die-hard MM/SS shipper and they are so! my One True Pairing. Thank you for reading my story and leaving all those reviews, I do so love feedback and especially when it\'s that detailed.



A Different Sort of War by Sly Severus

Rated: 6th-7th Years • 194 Reviews
Summary: Long after a war ends the wounds remain. When forced to face something so horrific a part of a person’s very soul dies. People are left changed. Societies are left in shambles



During this time, people are prone to making bad choices. Horrible things are said and done because the bitter continue to fight. How can such a monstrous event ever truly be over? And how can those left behind truly regain their lives

Date: 08/30/07 Title: Chapter 27: Understanding

Oh good, everyone's starting to come around. :D It did seem like Neville (and to some extent, Harry) accepted things a bit quickly though. They went from loathing Bellatrix to accepting her completely. I would love a chapter from one of their PoVs and see what is going on in their (slightly crazy) heads!

Author's Response: *smiles* I\'m glad you liked it. I was a little worried that this chapter moved too quickly, and it has been confirmed. I\'m not sure that I can really change it and have the rest of the story flow right though. However, I like the idea of doing a one-shot from Neville\'s POV. I just might do that some day. *hugs* Thanks for the review and the bunny!



Reviewer: Hermione_Rocks Signed
Date: 05/08/07 Title: Chapter 9: Confrontation

Teehee! You call him Sevy too! I thought I was pretty much the only one who did that. ^.^

Anyhow. Poor Cassie, how Frank turned on her. But I don't really blame him, he couldn't have really reacted any other way once he found out what Bellatrix did to his family.

And Harry. Wow. He's so...I don't know, just so transformed. What Lupin said, how he thought he knew him better than that, sums it up perfectly. Hopefully Hermione (and maybe even Severus? :)) will knock some sense back in him. Excellent chapter! :D

Author's Response: Yep, I\'ve always called him Sevy. I have a little crush on him, so...you know.

*huggles Cassie* She is having a bit of a hard time. Frank\'s reaction is based more on his father\'s opinion than his own. Obviously, Neville was trying to turn Frank against Bella.

Knocking sense into Harry isn\'t an easy task at the moment, but Hermione will certainly give it a try.


Author's Response: Oops, I forgot to say Thanks for the review. :D It\'s been a rough day.

Date: 08/01/07 Title: Chapter 19: An Unbreakable Bond

“All three of you were running around the forest?” Narcissa asked, looking horrified.

That part made me giggle. I can just see Narcissa being made to go into the forest as a school girl and squealing unhappily at every animal and bug she came across. Actually, I was giggling several times during this chapter, especially when Bellatrix called herself the "evil sister". :P

Of course, I did also enjoy the more serious parts, and I especially liked the Black sister reunion. It was very cute. I was worried there might be more tension between them, but as the chapter title references, some bonds are unbreakable. :)

Author's Response: *huggles Anna* Thanks for the review. I\'m glad you found some parts funny. And if you thought Cissy and the forest was interesting, wait til you hear about her and the Sorting Hat. ;) Anyway, thanks again for the wonderful review.

Date: 08/24/07 Title: Chapter 24: A Surprise

Elle, I had no idea that you were a delusional shipper! Teehee. ;D

So, I'm glad Harry is not yet a complete monster, and feels a bit of guilt. It was nice to see he was still human, but also shocking to see how . . . needy and pitiful he is. :/ Nice that he and Hermione are on good terms again, but I think he's got to sort out a few -- issues. Heh.

Anyway, another great chapter. My only nitpick is that I can't see Draco EVER saying 'adorable'. It just doesn't seem like him. X)

Author's Response: I\'m not a delusional shipper. I don\'t really like the pairing that much, but it fit well with the story.

And yes, the Harry we all know is still there. He\'s just a little lost. He needs to be shoved in the right direction.

Hmmm...Draco and adorable...you never know...

Date: 04/14/07 Title: Chapter 5: Eye Contact

Oh. Gosh. It's so terrible what they do to the Death Eaters, how they turn them into slaves. Gah, that was horrible. I mean, it was a really good chapter, but it's horrible what they do.... Right. This is why I don't R & R when I'm sleepy. >.< Anyhow, lovely job, Elle. And you're so quick at updating too, I can already see the next chappie in queue. ^.^ Yay!

Author's Response: *huggles Anna* Yay for reviewing, even when you\'re tired.

And yes, training is horrible. Of course, the whole concept is horrible. Slavery was made illegal in the Muggle world for a reason. But training was particularly brutal.

Thanks again for the review. *huggles Anna again*

Date: 05/11/07 Title: Chapter 10: Coming Home

Hmm, I had kinda thought the benefactor was Ginny up until now, but I guess not. >.> I'll just start making new predictions...

But, poor Harry, it certainly is hard to let things go...or, at least, not be so angry about them. Hermione has her work cut out for her.

*reads Elle's response to Will* Romance for both Hermione and Severus, but not with each other? *is curious* Interesting...well, I'd tell you to update soon, but I already seen the next chapter in the queue! :)

Author's Response: Nope, Ginny can\'t be the benefactor. ;) There have been a couple of minor hints, but I don\'t know if anyone will be able to guess before it is revealed. Obviously, there are some new back stories and plot twists when the idenity is revealed.

Harry is struggling and Hermione wants to help him. But he needs to come to terms with this on his own. Being told that he\'s wrong isn\'t going to change his view.

*grins* Yep, Hermione and Severus will both have a little romance before too long. Although, there will be more about Severus than Hermione. ;)

Thanks so much for the reivew. I\'m glad you\'re enjoying the fic. *huggles*

Date: 07/04/07 Title: Chapter 17: What Friends Are For

You know, you are really starting to make me hungry when I read this. First the cheesecake, and now the big cookie. What's next? ;)

Anyhow, so this was a sweet chapter. I like your characterization of Kingsley. Poor Tonks though, I hope she gets another job. It was cruel of Neville to say those things, but parts of what he said were right. . .still uncalled of him to be so cruel.

Nice job, Elle, on the chapter. And congrats on becoming a mod. :D

Author's Response: What\'s next? Food wise, I believe it is a spaghetti dinner. :p

I love Kingsley. He\'s been a lot of fun in this story. He has another part coming up.

As for Neville, he may have had some points, but they were unfair. He didn\'t know how Andromeda or Ted will feel. And I assure you, Cassie will not become a murderer. He was only trying to be cruel, although he believed what he said.

Anyway, thanks so much for the reivew. And I am totally psyhed about my modship. :D
