"...is still jumping on the bed, her red curls bouncing up and down in the early morning light."
As soon as i read this i knew exactly where this was going!! What an amazing hint at where Ginny wants her relationship to go. I was wondering if Harry was going to catch that or not!! So very very clever! Brilliant!
Author's Response: i personally love this scene.....and it will be revisted
Summary: One Shot: "...I can no longer handle this. Why did my life have to turn out this way? Iím young, after all, and I know that it is hopeless. Either way, I shall die, so what is the point?"
A boy turns to desperate measures to avoid his pre-determined fate.
"...Iíll end it all, before he has a chance to."
... wow... I had to stop halfwy though to read it again. I wasnt sure who it was youw ere talking about. Honestly, from the beginning i though you were talking about Draco, but when you talked about going to get dumbledore, i had to start over again... I suppose thats what makes this such a fantastic story! It is because you can interchange both Harry and Draco throughouth the entire thing. For a while there i though it was Harry!
Really amazing idea, and not to far fetched actually. I would never want to be in the position that Draco was in. It does seem in the books that he is just supposed to follow in his fathers footsteps, but he never seemed to have a chioce... until the end of book 6...
Very well written. I look forward to reading your other fics!
Author's Response: Hey! Great hearing from you again, and I\'m so glad that you liked it- all while seeing it for what it is. Draco really IS in a tough situation, and I cannot WAIT to see how JK works it out! Thanks again for reading!
Summary: A rose, a new bedroom, a Pensieve, and a new home. Harry finds comfort in his friends and family. Will he find more?
hey now i am not a lengthy reviewer, but i must say a few things after this chapter. 1- I LOVE the idea of a garden at Grimmauld place. It is a really neat idea... that im sure will come in tremendously handy. 2- i waqs worried about the "will" as being like most "will" stories i have read in the past... but i must say you wrote this brilliantly!! Sirius being able to talk to everyone individually made it so much more personal. 3- I must say i teated up in the end. especially the part about how he left memories in the pensieve for Harry to check out. Not a dry eye at the table... or reading! Also.. the subtlety of the two holding hands at the end... perfect. just enough to know it is starting. Honestly one of the best starts to a fiction i have ever read!! Can not wait to read on!!!
wow. I really love the thoroughness with which you tie all the parts of this story together. The part about Harry showing everyone his room and talking animatedly with everyone really stuck with me. it is such a pleasant cahnge from what I am used to. it might be a bit out of character... but i really like that. It is really the way i wish Harry could be. Or rather the way he deserves to be. (does that make sence?)
Now this is really nice and all... but it is too fast for me... now it is your story and written to perfection, so i am not complainning about that, but i am just not a fan of them getting together that fast. ok, enough soap box. (Well done nonetheless!!)
Summary: Year six begins in the_bartender's crazy concoction that is the life of Harry Potter. Add one part Harry, two parts prophecy, a mixture of Ron and Hermione, a dash of Ginny, a splash of Dumbledore (and garnish with a certain new knightly character to add a little mystery!)...
Pour over the ice in Lord Voldemort's heart and voila!
You've got yourself a Power of the Prophecy Cocktail, sure to mess you up, spin you around, make you question your motives and turn your wizarding world up-side down.
i figured they had to be more then just a cat and a bee... I loved the part about him catching up to her... The ceremony was Beautiful!!!!
wow... now that was something!
that was absolutely beautiful... but i dont like it. I dont like it at all... especially the ending witht eh "True love is to die for the person" and how Harry "knew what he had to do." I dont like were that could lead him...
that was awesome! Had me crying at one point there! (And that is quite a feat!)
whew! that was serious. I am quite supprise dthat Harry didnt use any of his wandless magic though... wether or not he was out of control. I cant wait to see what Dumbledore has to say.
wow this is absolutely fantastic! It is getting to be one of the best stories i have read on MNFF. I dont recomend many, but i might just have to start recomending this one!
brilliant... and i keeps getting better... how can it keep getting better??
wow! that was absolutely the most amazing chcapter i have ever read. I can not believe the amout of thought that you put into this story, as well as the amout of research and imagination that it took to think of a plot so utterly fantastic! This is now THE GREATEST fic i have read! i can understand why people would put you in the top ten! Because you definitely deserve to be there. Look... i am saying all these things and i still have 24 chapters to go! Very soon im not going to be able to leave any more reviews because i dont think words are going to be able to successfully satisfy how i feel about this.
... hmmm.. i dont know about that one. thats a bit far reaching... hmmm. it does make sence.... but still...
now that was well written! I was crying the whole time but it was perfect. every part of it. for the "thank you... Dad." part to Ron punching Harry. Perfect!!
oh good lord that was absolutely fantastic!!!. the tears are still running down my face! I could not think of a better and more beautiful way to end a story then with that. I cant get over some of the writers on here! I dont know how you guys can think of such fantastic ways to connect different plots from the story. It is absolutely brilliant! Every time I read a story like this, i feel like... oh this cant get any better... And then it does! it astounds me! Absolutely wonderful and i cant wait to read the sequel!!!! Thank you for sharing your tallent with us!
wow... although i am going to say that Draco was a bit too much OOC for me. It was a great plotline and idea... but it stretched a bit here and there... And im not sure if i like the Phoenix name yet.. (I need to learn the correct pronunciation!)
Author's Response: Hehehe-- it is pronounced \"san-jew-een\", although some might argue for \"san-gew-een\". I learned about it in my Psych class- is was the one body make up in ancient greek society that was considered useful.... and it also means blood, so JKR used it for the name of her Vampire in HBP. You have no idea how much that shocked me, b/c I had come up with the name MONTHS before HBP came out!!!
whoa now that was serious.... i dont know abotut his one. It is starting to get into territory that is very sensitive... hmmm
what an AMAZING plot seed! Wow! And the whole thing with Harry and the defence part! whew.... talk about some AWESOME writting... sone of the best i have ever read! oh PLEASE keep it up!
