AUTHOR UPDATE!!
8-10-07
Wow. It's been a while. But I'm still alive, and now that I've finally got the net in the apt., I read all those wonderful reviews that have been left for me since May and before!
I adore all of the HP world. It really makes me want to buckle down and keep writing on my real novel. As per usual, I will make sure that this site (after my live journal) is the first to know once I get a publishing deal. Because I would be so flattered if since you spent so many hours and gigabytes supporting me online if you'd spend fifteen or so of your hard earned dollars (and a few more of your hours!) to read my real 'no pen-name required' novel.
Feel free to keep up with me via live journal (user name bartender713), but I will warn you- I am a 23 year old graduate student. Contents of my personal life may very well be not suitable for children, so read at your disgression. If you want to know whether you're old enough to read about my personal life, well... if you have to ask, you're probably not :-)
See you on the book shelf!!

Summary: Itís the summer after the battle at the Ministry of Magic and Harry has returned to Privet Drive, where he awaits the time when he can rejoin his friends. A certain redhead has begun to occupy his mind and awaken emotions he never knew he had. As he continues to mourn the loss of his godfather, Harry slowly begins to heal and may have discovered a way to communicate with Sirius. Can it be too good to be true? Takes place directly following OOTP. Primarily a H/G romance, with some R/Hr as well. Rated R for adult content in future chapters.

Whew! I was so worried about Hermione. I was afraid it was something along the lines of abuse- a lot of people like to do that to her character, I've noticed. I'm so glad it wasn't that, and I'm relieved she's ok.

Author's Response: Nope, no abuse - just the remnants of the battle. I thought it was important to remember what happened, and have something visual to bring it home. She knew how Harry would react and didn\'t want him to feel guilty about it.

I loved the box of personal items from Sirius. I also am waiting (and waiting!) to find out what happened to Sirius and his mirror. It was a really nice scene with Harry and Ginny in the living room- I'm glad he got it off his chest!

Author's Response: Thanks! This was one of my favorite chapters to write. Don\'t fret about the mirror - all will be revealed in time.

Oooh- I was so excited to see who the new DADA prof. would be and I'm so happy its' Kingsley!! I can't wait to see him in the movie next summer!

Author's Response: I really liked Kingsley and wanted to make him a more important part of the story. I hope they do him justice in the movie!

OOOH! You are positively snarky, and I LOVE it! That almost kiss scene- I was holding my breath! And the way you ended the chapter- "HAve you ever tasted honeysuckle?" Adorably perfect.

Author's Response: LMAO! I know, it was wicked of me, but I had to do it.

Yay for Harrry, the occlumency master! I'm so glad he's been able to work around Snape- sweet as sugar, it always works!

Author's Response: I think he\'s problable just relieved he won\'t have to take Occlumency lessons with him anymore. The two of them are like oil and water.

Two things- It's about time!!!! and also LMAO- custard pies!

Author's Response: It certainly took them long enough, didn\'t it? After all that tension leading up to the kiss, I thought it was a good time for some lightheartedness and custard pie :-)

I love the research committee! Hermione is always so brilliant, and the banter between Harry and Ron was absolutely perfect!

Author's Response: Thank goodness for Hermione or nothing would ever get accomplished. She\'s certainly in her element, much to Ron\'s dismay.

Date: 05/01/06 Title: Chapter 20: Chapter 20. Shadows

OOh... mirror, mirror, covered in blood. I've read in other stories about how the mirror was activated by blood, but no one ever explained it. I'm really hoping you will, because I'm sure it will be wonderfully fantactic! And as for the Ferret... what is UP with that kid??

Author's Response: Don\'t worry, the title of the story says it all. The mirror is an interesting object and will feature quite prominently. As for the Ferret, he\'s awfully cocky for someone whose father is about to go on trial, don\'t you think?

 

Summary: Will Ginny's love be the salvation or death of Harry?

To my fans I would like to say that I am back to writing, and I have now updated many of the chapters! Some changes are just grammer edits, but there are many adds and changes to chapters. Some based on your reviews or small things I felt needed to be added. Please take a look at the changes and let me know what you think. I am looking forward to hearing what you have to say about the changes and up comeing chapters.

I'm so glad I was able to read this! This is the only fic that's post HBP that I've let myself read, and I love it! I like how you've made Harry 'grow up' and take charge- I think it fits him quite well. It's amazing to see that some of the people (HI LadySnuffles!) read both our stories. I didn't realize that there was such an older following on mn. I am very intrigued with where you're going... and I REALLY want Harry's potion (*coughcoughfelixfeliciouscoughcough*) to turn out all right! P.S. Thanks for being there for me--- I appreciate it, and I can't wait to work with you!

Author's Response: I have said many times in response to reviews from writers who I like to read my self "I get such enjoyment from hearing from authors I respect." I am Very Happy you like the story. I have noticed may of the reviews I get and places I review have the same people. I guess great minds think alike. Yes Harry is working on Felix Felicous. I am always glad to help someone in a time of need. I am looking forward to working with you as well.

Summary: Meet James Potter, a clever, somewhat mischievous, popular student at Hogwarts. He takes every situation in stride and has everything under control, except one: Lily Evans, an amazingly beautiful and intelligent individual. He loves her more than anything, but she despises him more than anything, and a not-so-impressive run-in late at night with her leaves James thinking that chasing after Lily might be hopeless. Then, a series of events happen in James' life, which is topped off by an unexpected visitor that makes his sixth year too sweet to remember.

I'm definately intrigued. I've never read a Lily/James fic before- I think it was because since there's so little information on them it seemed impossible that an author could make them "real", and yet stay consistent with JK's world.
So far, you're proving me wrong- and I'm ever so glad. Your closing sentence has cinched me in... I must read on!

OOh.... Remus is totally intelligent. KNowing that James was in it deep since the entire school knew he was wandless..... I wonder how Lily will feel when she realizes his condition is (essentially) her fault??

Hmmm... I wonder if he's going to the Room of Requirement? That- and the duel was SPECTACULAR!!!! I esp. love how he didn't rat Lily out.... You could cut the tension w/ a knife!

OOh... I loved the scene between Lily and Prongs! It was so magical! Also can't help but wonder who Sirius is crushing on.... Naomii?? Maybe Lily as well?

Awww.... So there's much more to shallow perfect James than we thought??? I like this new him! I also like Audrey, and I hope he asks HER to the dance. I think they could do a lot for each other.

Jigga what???? WHat is UP with her? And who is this guy? Triumph my foot!
Oh well... at leat the AUdrey thing is working out so far like I hoped!
