First, I love the description in your story. It's so descriptive (yeah, duh) but it is also captivating and truly took me into the story and Snape's state of mind.
It's interesting that you chose to give him amnesia but it worked quite well if I do say so myself. I like how he's confused, trying to figure everything out, and yet old habits die hard: case point-the wand reflexes, his disdain for Harry because he reminded his of James.
And I think it is really original that Snape was the one that found Harry, and took him to Dumbledore on that night.
Good work.

Oh...I must say as a teacher I identify with the line you wrote about the children:
No . . . he had lots of children. He had nearly two hundred and fifty of them.

It made me laugh.

Author's Response: Aw, it\'s great to hear from a teacher that I got the teacher part right. :) Thanks!

If you use the forum at all, I have an *entire essay* devoted to Snape\'s allegiances, backed up with lines from the books and interviews from Jo, and part of that essay addresses Harry being taken from Godric\'s Hollow by Snape. If you\'re on the forums, PM me (same forum name as my author name), and I can point you to it. :)


A Fair to Remember by Therinian
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 44]

Before going to a Muggle fair, Mr. Weasley tells his family, Harry, and Hermione: “Don’t attract attention to yourselves, do not use your wand for any reason, and lastly, don’t let anyone know you’re not a Muggle!”

The group tries to abide by these simple rules, but things don’t always go according to plan...

NOTE: This story takes place during the summer after the Trio's 6th Year and consists of 12 chapters.

This was interesting. =]
I can't wait to see the actual "fair" chapter but this was good. I liked the interaction between Ron and Hermione. So cute.
As for made him so angry and full of hate for Snape. I can understand but it seems out of character for him. I don't expect him to be all mellow but outright lashing out to others seems weird.No wait...he has lashed out before. Eh.
Good work.

It has always bothered me to read fics in which James seems obsessed with Lily since first year. It's a bit...weird to be eleven, and already chasing one girl for the rest of your life. wrote yours in such a way that James doesn't seem obsessed, just loving and genuinely caring. LOL.

I loved it! You did a good job, and I love the ending line:
It was then that I, Lily Evans, knew that James Potter would never rest unless there was always someone beside me.

Author's Response: Mwahahaha. I\'m so glad you caught that, Ritta. I was trying to make it seem like James was just trying to be friendly and caring and Lily misinterpreted his actions and went all Ebil!Lily on him and turned against him for the rest of her life. Or at least until they started dating. Thanks so much for the review! ~Becca

I love Marauder stories as children...yours is just cute.
I loved little Peter -- and I'm a Peter basher!
It was funny to see Sirius be all excited about seeing a 40 year old muggle woman, and then be more excited about meeting a halfblood. *laughs*
And the "book" comment just goes to show that maybe purebloods really don't know squat about muggles. He seems a little OOC though...I imagined he'd be more tentative/cautious about meeting muggleborns. I don't know...just my opinion.
I like the cheeky responses though.
I can't wait to see your next chapter.

Author's Response: THANK YOU!!! :)


The Dursley Descendent by krumflies11392
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 202]

Summary: Dudley Dursley gets married to a wonderful wife and has two perfect sons. Everything seems to be perfect in his life until an unexpected letter arrives at his doorstep- his son is a wizard! Is Dudley going to have to relive his dreaded childhood?

Dear Fans,

I know that I have not been on Mugglenet FanFic in SEVERAL months and I am sorry. These past months and year have been so crazy, hectic, and frustrating there has been no time for DD. I am sad to tell that I will not be finishing DD unless a random amount of freetime appears.
Instead of leaving my fans to a cliff-hanger, I might be writing an ending chapter to summarize how I planned to finish DD. I am so sorry for all my fans! I appreciate your time in reading and reviewing- you guys are wonderful! 200 reviews! Thanks to my fans!

I like where your plot is going. It is very creative. I wonder what you have planned for later chapters.
Does Harry have "seeing" powers?
I like how you characterize the Dursley's.
I like how Shawn is almost a miniature version of Dudley: spoiled and annoying.

I do think it's weird that Harry growing up with muggles wouldn't know about muggle hospitals. And it's even more weird that he would have to ask Arthur Weasley. I don't know it just seems that he would know about going to the front desk to ask for help. I know he spent a great deal locked up under the cupboard but it just seems he should know.

Muggle - you know I think that muggle is just anoun and not a proper noun so it can be left in lowercase. =]

Overall, good job!

Author's Response: Also, thanks for your honesty in my story... I will learn from my mistakes. Hint-the way Shawn acts will make a great affect in the plot of the story. Muggle is capitalized in the HP books, so I will continue capitalizing it.


Broken Friendships by RedheadedWeasley

You should really consider continuing this plot. It's quite interesting.
I was surprised that you chose to have Godric Gryffindor be the creator of the Cruciatus Curse. That's quite original. I loved it.
I wonder are the other unforgiveable actions the two other curses? And why did Salazar leave? Because of the pureblood vs. muggleborns/halfbloods being allowed into Hogwarts?
Again...good job. Loved it.

Author's Response: Thank you for the wonderful words. I was surprised at Godric being the creator of the Cruciatus Curse as well. I thanked my Muse for that little bit of inspiration. As for the other unforgiveable actions, I was refering to the Unforgiveable Curses, but I\'m not sure how complete the list is at this point. Probably the Imperius is on there, not sure if AK has been invented yet. Why Salazar left is anybody\'s guess, but yes, this was his break with the school and his friends forever. Personally, I think there is a little more to it than the pureblood vs. muggleborn issue. Unfortunately, JKR is the only one who knows for sure. Thanks for taking the time to review!

That was funny.
I really thought it amusing that Minerva would stand up to the caretaker like that and cover for five troublemakers. But she is a true Gryffindor isn't she?

On another note, the characterization you do of her is almost like she's a version of Hermione (or actually vice versa).

Good work!

Author's Response: I\'m glad you enjoyed it and thanks for reviewing. I see Minerva and Hermione as very similar characters, but I tried to make Minerva her own person as well. Her whole situation is different from Hermione\'s. When Hermione came to Hogwarts she didn\'t have friends, she was always alone, and Hermione certainly studies for herself, not for anyone else. Minerva on the other hand, in this story anyway, used to have friends, then her mother died and her father became really strict on her and she started studying to please him, she wasn\'t studying for herself anymore. That\'s the most important difference, Minerva in the end chose her friends over her father, Hermione never had to make that choice.

I love your writing style. The beginning is so descriptive, and the words flow rather effortlessly. It was enticing, the words just drawn you in. I particularly like the way you describe the 'nothing.'

The concept of the 'souls of ghosts' being behind the Veil is a very intriguing one as well. It's an interesting theory.

The beginning is a little choppy at the beginning, but it is still good. The only thing that bothered me was the sentence:
Bella is family, no matter how much I hate to admit it. I could never kill family.
I'm almost pretty sure that Sirius hated Bella as much as she hated him. Other than that, you're characterization of Sirius is perfect. =]

You did a great job!

First, I love Harry/Luna! XD
And second, "Luna-love" *dies*
How freaking cute! *squee*

Ok, but on a serious note, I really loved your characterization of Luna. It was spot on, especially the ramblings and aloof personality. You also got Harry down rather well...with the hovering and 'creased' brow and 'mother hen' behaviour. I can definitely imagine him behaving like that towards his future wife.

My only nit-pick is that he doesn't really respond to Luna's crazy ramblings, but I guess being married to her for two years does that. Even though you do mention that his 'good' isn't the same as her 'good' so it's good to know that you didn't totally cast off that aspect of Harry's persona. It shows that he accepts her just as she is. *loves*

This was my favorite line:
She smiled dreamily at him, causing him to grin sheepishly back.

“Hello there, Luna-love. I have some tea for you, if you’d like it.”

He's so boyish?!

And I also thought this was fluffy: Though he had to admit, nothing short of love for his wife could bring him to cuddle that catnip. It tickled.

The ending was rather fast though, but good nonetheless. I like how you brought out Luna's Ravenclaw side too! XD

Great job!

Author's Response: Hi Ritta! Thanks for the review, and congrats on becoming a mod! I\'m glad you like my characterization (possibly better than I do; I like how Luna came out but Harry is too sappy for my taste). The ending is probably rushed because I wrote this for a fic exchange... you know how those go. Squee for Harry/Luna!


Summary: Past Featured StoryWhat does Lord Voldemort do in his spare time? Well, that's an excellent question. Who would have known that the Dark Lord has a blog? (He also has a loyal following of readers, most of whom are Death Eaters and who post their comments.) Voldemort dispenses advice on everything from murder methods to germ protection to Power Rangers to shoes, and gives an account of the life of an evil overlord. But is he posting too much personal information online? And will Harry read it and find out more about the Dark Lord than Voldemort ever intended? Read and see.

You killed Harry?! What is wrong with you?! lol. j/k
I love how you incorporated that drabble from the Three Broomsticks - lovely!
It really was a sad ending - but I'm a tad confused as to what happened - I thought he saved himself?!
Is Harry stuck in a time warp?

Author's Response: Hi Ritta! Thank you so much for reading this story! I often wonder what is wrong with me, as well. ;) My husband doesn\'t even want to read this story because of what I\'ve done, lol! The drabble came first and really sealed Harry\'s fate - poor Harry, and poor Ron. I\'m sorry it was confusing! Harry is not stuck in a time warp. Harry went back in time thinking that many people had died, including Ron. His goal was to save them, which he did. By casting the Patronus he did also saved his past self from Voldemort, and allowed his past self to cast the final spell. But future Harry was mortally injured by Bellatrix, and weakened by the Cruciatus Curse. It was love that motivated Harry to go back in time and accomplish these things, and he sacrificed himself to do so. Does that make sense? It makes sense in my own private little world, I hope I\'ve made in clear enough for my readers! Maybe one more chapter will help, it\'s just about finished.
