Heh. This is pretty funny - it's something I could easily see the twins doing. Those little troublemakers!

I don't normally like reading OC fics because they are generally MarySue's or self-inserts or otherwise inappropriate, but you have a real flair for this that you should nurture.

I like how you wrote the twins, too. THey were very true to canon. I especially like the twin-invented spell - I can so see them doing that, because they are always finishing each other's sentences and such. And they're certainly innovative enough!

Author's Response: Yes, you never know what Fred and George will be getting into next. Actually, I have a fic in queue about Fred getting into some trouble... Anyway, I\'m glad you think my OC was good. I was sort of worringing about that. I think that the more you read OCs, though, the more you know what and what not to do. The twins are always fun to write. Thanks for the awesomess review!

Oh my goodness, this was brilliant. I loved how you fit in all little bits of potions and creatures and different classes and spells. I was really intrigued, wondering how this was going to end.

I've had a rotten couple of weeks at work and have a few minutes of down-time, and decided to read a bit of fan-fic to lighten my mood and give myself a break, and I'm glad I read this because it was something different and intriguing to read, yet light and enjoyable enough to not hurt my brain or sour my mood. I liked Oliver getting back at Peeves and McGonagall being all stern with him.

Very nice!

Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m sorry you\'ve been having a rough time. I\'m glad I could help. *The sun\'ll come out tomorrow, bet your bottom dollar...* Great! Now it\'s stuck in my head! ;) Thank you for reading and reviewing!


The Day Lassie Went To The Moon by fawkes_07
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 6]

Summary: This was written for the 2006 Gauntlet Challenge #3: The night Severus Snape became a Death Eater. Includes a bit of angst, a bit of humor, a bit of romance (!), and plenty of cynicism.

Summary: Past Featured StoryFairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed. -G. K. Chesterton

Can the hero slay the "dragon" that hunts his little girl and haunts his nightmares?

This is submitted for my final assignment in Professor Talons DADA: An Introduction to Dark Arts class.

A small warning, this story terrified me (and my beta) and made me cry. Read it with caution but please read it.

Yeah, that's pretty twisted and dark all right! Just don't come to my LJ, then you'll *really* be corrupted. I restrain myself in class. ;)

Author's Response: Hee, hee actually I have been there, Snapes Talon tricked me into on time.


From Beyond The Veil by blackhairedweasley
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 16]

Summary: The Department of Mysteries holds many questions. Questions that could never be answered by some of the bravest and brightest witches and wizards of our age. But for some, there is one question, one fear, that is thought about every day. The one mystery that has brought misery and chaos, as well as inspiration, even joy.

But for Neville Longbottom, this mystery is not the end, but the beginning. And as Neville finds the path in his journey, he brings with him even more questions. Questions about life, death, and what lies beyond the Veil.

1st place winner of the Gauntlet's 4th run by BlackHairedWeasley of Slytherin House.

I know I've said all this before but it bears repeating:

Oh. *god*. I just *love* your Neville. He's not "sexy", so he's woefully un(der)represented in fanfic, which is a real pity because, In general, I love Neville to bits - he's got some ginormous brass cojones, some of the biggest in the entire series canonically but you do him such fantasitc justice.

People say I do a good Snape. I'd certainly hope I do a passing job, as he's all I write, but you absolutely do my favourite Neville. You absolutely epitomise what a writer of a character should be - you just GET him - and God Willing that Jo ever releases this series to fanfic writers, I swear I'd run straight to the store and buy a book about Neville that you wrote.

And . . .Hi. You did a million times better at this Gauntlet than I did. Inferi. *shudder* I"ve no idea how they're goigg to make that lake scene into a PG-13 movie!

Author's Response: First off... HOLY CRAP!! You have absolutely no freaking clue how flattered I am to hear that from you, because I admire you so much! Through this review I\'d choked on my soda, my jaw dropped and I momentarily stopped breathing. This is bar none the highest compliment on my writing I\'ve ever received, and I just cannot thank you enough for it.

Oh, and we agree on the Inferi completely! As soon as I read HBP I was telling everyone that I\'d be so pissed if the movie wasn\'t rated R. That and when I read that part of the book, by sheer coincidence, I was listening to Marilyn Manson\'s score from Resident Evil. BTW, I highly recommend doing so if you\'re going to read it again before DH is released!

Ah, see, I think it was good he asked Draco. I even think Draco would go with him, although Harry could have warned him, the prat. I think Harry was wise to at least leave Ron behind. And I can have Severus wait *that* long, under the circumstances, but not for all eternity.

Thank you.

Author's Response: Thanks, cm. I\'m glad you enjoyed it. I know we disagree on a lot of HP topics. But Severus deserves some dignity; that\'s something we\'ll always agree on.
