Bio:
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.

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 ;-)

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

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.

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.

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...

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 [Reviews - 194]

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

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!

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.

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...

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*

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*

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

Aw, Frank still cares about her. Cute. ^.^ Was kind of random how Bellatrix showed up; is she somehow tracking Cassie's location? :s Hmm . . . *hurries to next chapter*

Author's Response: Heh. Tracking Cassie\'s location? No. That would be a little scary.

Thanks for the review, Anna.

Date: 08/05/07 Title: Chapter 20: A Private Moment

Aha, so that's how Severus paid for the bracelet. So basically, Narcissa paid for nearly everyone's Christmas gifts. :P Oh well, the gesture was still sweet. I really liked Hermione and Sevy's conversation, how he tries to intimidate her but it has no affect. And, the Sevy/Bella was actually . . . cute. Teehee.

As she smiled, he reached out and brushed his fingers across his lips.

Do you mean, brushed his fingers across her lips? This sentence just didn't feel right to me . . . otherwise, great job! :D

Author's Response: Thanks for the review, Anna. And yes, Narcissa ended up pretty much financing Christmas, but she doesn\'t care, so no harm done. :D

And yes, that should have been her lips. I really should run off and change that. Thanks for pointing it out. And thanks for the review.

Date: 04/08/07 Title: Chapter 4: Exhaustion

It's really interesting how Bellatrix is so trained to be a servant. She's always seemed like a very strong person. She's so...destroyed. Oh no, I might be feeling sorry for her! :P

I really liked this chapter. It's certainly another kind of war, and I'm wondering who's going to "win".

One nitpick: “Set down, with me, before you fall down.” -- I think you mean sit down. Otherwise, nice job!

Author's Response: *squee* I love getting reviews for this! *huggles Anna*

*huggles Bella* Bella has been through a lot. It\'s sad what she has been reduced to, but it could have been worse. With the way her life has turned out, she\'s been lucky to maintain the amount of humanity and sanity that she has. She\'s struggling now, but she\'s finally somewhere, where people aren\'t trying to hurt her.

I\'m glad your enjoying it. It\'s a lot of fun to write. It\'s a bit different than anything I have ever tried before and I\'m really very attached to it.

I fixed the typo. Thank you for pointing it out. You\'d be surprised how often I do that.

Anyway, thanks so much for the lovely review!

Date: 05/01/07 Title: Chapter 8: Unexpected Events

*squees* I spy, with my little eye, Sevy! :D *jumps* Anywho, really excellent chapter. It's so sad how everyone deals with the aftermath of the war; Harry and Neville becoming so angry, Hermione sheltering herself like that, and of course those who have become slaves...in a way it's almost as though the wizarding world has moved backwards instead of forwards, even though Voldemort is gone.

To Hermione’s shock, her once snarky professor lowered his head and turned to obey. She never imagined that she would hear someone speak to Severus like that, but it was even more surprising to watch him take it, without even a sarcastic remark.

This part was very nicely done. How terrible. Before we had only seen Bellatrix as a slave, but this shows how much it has affected all of them.

I think this was your best chapter so far, actually. Am I a bit biased since my favorite character made an appearance? Maybe. :) But I still think it was a wonderful chappie. Great job!!





Author's Response: YAY! Thanks Anna! You didn\'t really think I would leave Sevy out, did you? *huggles Sevy*

Thanks so much for the review. And I\'m glad you enjoyed the chapter. I promise you will be seeing more of Severus, throughout. :D

Severus and...Bellatrix? >.> Well, I kind of suspected it, but...hmm. I don't know...Bella's too evil for him. :P Although, Severus buying the cat for her was pretty cute. Still...while I have softened towards Bellatrix, I don't think she deserves Sevy. >.> *coughs* I'm sure you'll prove me wrong in the future chapters though. So, anyway, this was still an excellent chapter. And Severus was in it, so that made it even better. :) Nice job, Elle!

Author's Response: *huggles Bella and hides her from mean words*

Thanks for the compliments and I\'m glad you liked the chapter, even if you were less fond of my pairing of choice. :p

Date: 08/24/07 Title: Chapter 26: A Promise

Oh, so Bellatrix isn't tracking her, just went to see Severus that day. That's a relief, LOL.

And (I can't believe I'm about to write this) they can't put Bellatrix back in Azkaban! She doesn't deserve that for trying to help. Grr. But Harry paying for her exam was really sweet. He's coming around! *squish*

And it just makes me snort every time Severus insists on carrying Bella around. :P It's cute, in an odd way, but also just amusing.

Author's Response: Heh. No, Bella isn\'t tracking her. I promise.

*hugs Bella* She\'ll be okay. And Harry is indeed coming around. I promised he would.

I\'m glad you laughed at Sevy. It was supposed to be funny. :D

Thanks for another review. *hugs Anna*
