Reviews by guiding ray of sunlight


"Love is unexplainable. There are no words for it. You can’t express why you feel so. It just happens," James said. "“Don’t you think that if I had the choice I would have chosen to love someone who didn’t hate me in return?”

“No,” Sirius said simply.

“You’re right.” James said, sighing. “I’m so screwed up, Padfoot.”

The drama-filled romantic tale of Lily and James's mysterious but unfortunate tale. It started with love and ended with death. It makes you wonder about the things they tried to live for. Pre-HBP

Hmmmm...interesting. I have read the entire story thus far, and I (who does not usually read about rape) found it believable. Though I myself have not gone through such a situation *thank G-d!!* I felt like it might actually happen. Hermione is VERY in character in the beggining, and changes as the story evolves. The change in her attitude is gradual, as it may be. I have heard of a scientific term that I think may be good for describing her situation. It's called Stockholm Syndrome, and happens when a person is kept in the captivity of somebody else for a while, and after a while begins bonding with their captor. Hermione seems to fit this cat. very well. She is being held both physically and mentally by Draco. Her evolvement is done perfectly.

Well done!

The Unseemly Proposal by sparx
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 5422]

Summary: Past Featured StoryThe reign of Voldermort comes to an end, and with it ends the prestige and power Lucius Malfoy once had in the Wizarding World. In order to regain the respect of his fellow wizards and to make them believe that he has turned over a new leaf (which he actually hasn't) and has graciously accepted muggles and Mudbloods, Lucius asks Hermione, a Mudblood, to marry his son, Draco, a pure-blood. Obviously, they both refuse, but Lucius isn't going to give up easily. After all, he wants his status back. He still has a few tricks up his sleeve and is determined to play match-maker. What happens next is a series of events that serve only to bring Hermione and Draco closer, both literally and figuratively speaking. Read to find out how this one unseemly proposal causes absolute chaos in their lives! THIS STORY IS NOT HBP and DH COMPATIBLE! Hey all! Check out my personal info for the expected date of the next update. =)

Author's Response: Thank you! Hmmm, that’s a good question. The sudden change does seem slightly suspicious, doesn’t it? Or maybe it was a spur-of-the-moment kinda thing… Hahaha, knight in shining armour!! Hahaha…

Wow! That was really powerful. Poor Sirius :( he deserves better...You shouldn't get punished for having a good heart *tears apart room Sirius-like*

Tears leaked down Sirius’ cheeks as he sat perched still on his bed. The sadness was creeping upon him again. There was no way of stopping it. He tried desperately to become angry but it wasn’t working. I loved that part.

You used the lyrics really well! Great Job!

Hey Maddy!

Well, for starters, I would like to thank you again for my amazing banner. Second, I would like to say that I suck at reviews, so I opologize ahead of time.

Now: I would like to say how I find it terribly ironic, and so totally believeable that what drove Tom to such levels of madness, of hatred, was love. It fits his love-lacking character (in canon) so so much. Even though this story was written pre - HBP, it could still somehow fit in with canon, at least in charcterisation, and that is totally amazing. I love the Symbolysim of the rose, and of how even after death, their love remained. As well, a rose is one of the prettier flowers that exist, yet it has thorns. Their love was true, and beautiful (you ceratinly made it beautiful) yet it had the downsides (that were not their fault. I'd hate to put the blood of millions in the hands of Hermione. SHe doen't deserve it). A rose is beautiful, but it stings.

Also, re-reading it now, right after I read another book, in which a rose has that symbolysim, it has been magnified to me.

Great job!

Author's Response: Thanks! I am working hard on it! Don\'t worry, it\'s coming soon.


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.

this story is reeeeeaaaaaly good!!!!! but there are a few problems with the house colors though, go back and fix them when you get the chance, please. i'm surprised the mods didn't catch it. anyway, nice story.

Author's Response: Heheh, hey there! I'm really glad you like the story! The House Colours? Oh, goodness. Do you think you coud point out roughly which chaper or what part the mistakes were in? I don't feel at the moment to go back through the last 20 chapters looking for each House colour. I think readers were much rather have me working on chapter 21. Thanks for pointing it out though! Thanks for reviewing!

Okay. Okay Okay Okay Okay Okay Okay

For all of you who wanted an update, I have a proposition. You may or may not like it, but it's all I can offer.
Check review challenge for the last chapter. details there!

James and Lily Potter were possibly the most famous parents in wizarding history. We know alot about their adult life, but what do we really know about their childhood? Even Harry never knew about the Drama, jealousy, danger, friendships, happiness, sadness, resentment,confusion and love that his parents went through as children. Here, their lives, from when the two of them were eleven to when they were brutally murdered at only 21, is recorded. Lily and James Potter were unsung heros. This is their story.
