Decoy by slipstick

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Somewhere in the multivers lies a time line on which Dumbledore chose a different strategy. Harry is sent to school in the U.S. and an American muggle-born to Hogwarts. Our story begins about the time of Harry's eleventh birthday
Reviewer: KenTuck Signed
Date: 05/13/06 Title: Chapter 3: Back to School Shopping

Another good chapter, although I would have loved to hear about how he responded to Diagon alley. Just out of curiosity what is com? ("Let's com Dumbledore this minute.")

After a heart stopping romp through tunnels with twists and turns George could hardly count let alone track they stopped in front of what looked like an old-fashioned bank vault door. This sentence does not make sense. For one thing after turns should be a comma, if you read it over you will see that something is missing in that sentence.

I really like how the parents respond to his books. I could really relate. My parents would totally do the same, supportive yet skeptical.

Author's Response: Thanks about the comma, Tuck. You\'re a great lil\' gamma reader (comes after beta).

Actualy George would have liked to remember the trip better too, but it was SO different from the techno world he was raised in his mind rejected most of it.

Oh, yea. \"com\" is short for communicate. It\'s a common enough usage down here but I never thought about how others would see it.

I really liked this chapter. I loved how different characters continued to show up and introduce themselves. For once I do not have any constructive critiscm. I just want to say congrats on a great chapter!

Author's Response: Music to my ears, pal.

Dear Dumby by Oppungo

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: What happens when Dumbledore has his latest "brilliant" idea, to start an advice column, and call it 'Dear Dumby'? Letters from some of our favourite Hogwarts students, some of our not so favourite Hogwarts students, some not even Hogwarts students at all, and, of course, lots of madness!

Pre-HBP for obvious reasons!

I like this, I can't wait to read the letters. In a lot of fanfics, Ron LOVES food... but is that really true in canon? just out of curiosity. Really great so far. Can't wait to read on.

Author's Response: Well, that is true in the books, but it is often exagerated in fanon...*looks away, whistling* Read on!

Falling Apart by Pixichik118

Summary: The golden trio are in their seventh year, and everything is starting to catch up with Hermione. She can't control her emotions and her love for two men is tearing her apart. *One Shot*

Clair De Lune by Astrid Skywalker

Rated: 6th-7th Years •

It was full moon when the Dark Lord sealed a part of his soul within a magical amulet, and then broke it in half. One half was left to the faithful werewolves to guard. The other half was tossed into the impenetrable depths of time where no one but him could get it. When the first half has been found, the Order of the Phoenix selects Hermione Granger to go back into the past to search for the missing piece. What is waiting for her is a brutal task that will test her beyond her limits, and an undying love that extends beyond the boundaries of time.


No werewolves were harmed in the making of this story.

Winner of 2007 Quicksilver Quills Awards - Best Non-Canon Romance

Update (9 May): Chapter 17, Burning, is up! Enjoy!

Reviewer: KenTuck Signed
Date: 05/30/06 Title: Chapter 1: The Amulet

I liked the first part. It made me very tired as I was reading it (in a good calming way, no in a bored way). The mood is conveyed very well, though I believe that when Hermione was nervous she would try to get her mind off of it, not dwell and wait. (just a thought)

You write suspense really well. The door part really made me anxious.

“We were all dead worried about you, mate,” That is a bit ironic, as they believed he was dead.

The interactions between the threesome are very realistic, especially after all the worry and stress they have been put under.

Did Harry tell Moody, because he refused to tell McGonnagall. I always had the impression that Dumbledore didn't even tell the Order about the Horcruxes.

"Then there are also werewolf-wannabes who seek the dark atmosphere of the place" This sounds a bit American... wannabes?

"every step sent a jolt straight to his heart, and the piercing silence rung eerily in his ears. " I love this line and I can totally relate.

"He was too late." This is a simple line, yet it allows are imaginations to run away with us.

I cannot wait to read on. Can they not destroy it without both halves? I think that this is one of the best written pieces I have ever read. I love suspense, so I cannot wait to read on. Great job.

Fountain of Magical Brethren by bajab

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: The Ministry contracts an aged artist to create a new fountain. Comedy one shot set after HBP.
Reviewer: KenTuck Signed
Date: 05/12/06 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter one

This is very good. The end was really funny, and I liked how he interacted with the characters from the book. Is this a random character or was he mentioned subtly in the canon?

Author's Response: Thank you. He is an original character I created because no existing character fit the bill.

Through the Eyes of Phedra Bagley by notabanana

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: In an account of personal growth and very deep friendships, a young girl manages to grow up at Hogwarts in the shadow of her extraordinary friends during the first rise of Lord Voldemort.

Sliding down in the faded train seat, with her feet stretched in front of her, Phedra stared at the ceiling and put into practice one of her absolute favorite activities…eavesdropping.
Reviewer: KenTuck Signed
Date: 05/15/06 Title: Chapter 2: Musical Chairs

This is very good so far. I like that everyone can relate to this story. I have been unfairly accused of doing things like that (obviously I didn't have a magical excuse) and you really managed to capture the anxiety and anger of being wrongly accused. I cannot wait to read more of your story, and see how she ends up in the magical world. (I am also very curious about how she returned sadly to America).

Author's Response: A new reviewer! I can\'t tell you how excited I was to see some new unresponed reviews. I\'m glad that people can relate to poor Phedra. She had the additional anxiety of not really understanding what happened at all, not to mention that it was her first day of school. Thanks very much!

Reviewer: KenTuck Signed
Date: 05/15/06 Title: Chapter 3: The Most Contrived Prank

Another great chapter. Just a few thoughts; her sister seems at times five or six and at other times thirteen or fourteen. Just out of experience, I have never heard a young girl say; “Okay, okay…I’m going…geez.” I have heard many older children say this but I just cannot hear it coming from the voice of a young girl.

I thought that Dumbledore wasn't headmaster at the time, but researching on Lexicon, he indeed was.

She believed she was a witch very quickly. Was this because she was so in need of change?

Can't wait to read on!

Author's Response: Based loosely off of the little girls I babysit, Maeve repeats phrases she hears on television or in movies. Perhaps she doesn\'t always know exactly what she\'s saying but she does get the gist of it. I know I did similar things when I was little. Everything was very \"affected\". So thats what I was going with there. I look nearly everything up on the Lexicon before I use Rowling\'s characters, I usually hate to stray from canon. Phedra was very unsure at first, but her dissatisfaction with her current situation mixed with knowledge of certain chair chrashing (she did feel some sort of responsibility for that) incident certainly pushed her to acceptance. Lets hope she remains that enthusiastic!

Author's Response: By the way, thanks for such a great review. You clearly put some thought in.

Reviewer: KenTuck Signed
Date: 05/15/06 Title: Chapter 4: Put On Your Anxious Face

It's the trunk from the prologue! "There was her father, heading for the door" I don't believe that this requires a comma. Who is Mr. Magoon? Do you believe that all muggle-born students have a representative to talk to them?

I just had a thought... could Maeve be who I think she is? She seems very much like a mean aunt of today.

I like the chapter, although I would really enjoy hearing more about Diagon Alley. I love your writing style and I do not think I have found any grammatical or spelling mistakes. Well done, and I look forward to your next chapter.

Author's Response: Yay, three reviews in a row! Well, I\'m glad that you noticed the trunk from the prologue, and am hoping that you weren\'t the only one (just the only one who said so). Nearly everything from the prologue will pop up as we follow the winding road of notabanana\'s plot.

I think I read in a JKR interview somewhere that a sort of representitive visited familys of Muggle-born witches and wizards to explain everything. That made perfect sense to me, and of course there simply had to be someone to get them into Diagon Alley as well! I don\'t think the Muggles could handle it on their own! So along came Mr. Magoon, dutifully indroducing many a Muggle-born child to the wizarding world. I had particular fun with his wardrobe.

Unfortunately, your thought about Maeve is much to clever for me. No, Maeve is not any character from JKR\'s books...and there is a reason. I\'m sorry that there wasn\'t enough Diagon Alley for you. I was really trying to keep Phedra\'s introduction to Hogwarts from being too repetitive of Harry\'s. Don\'t worry, nothing too exciting happened.

I can\'t tell you how glad I am that you are enjoying this little fic. Hopefully the rest is up to your standard as well! Thanks so much!

First Year by joanna

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: This story is about the Marauders' first year, how they met, what they did to become so close friends. In the first chapter we meet Sirius and James on the Hogwarts Express and we can get a glimpse of Remus and Peter. Bella makes an appearance too. Many thanks to Nikki, my Beta!
Reviewer: KenTuck Signed
Date: 06/09/06 Title: Chapter 1: On The Hogwarts Express

I liked this a lot. It set the tone for a great story. I think that James, Sirius, and Lupin were written beautifully. Wow, James was amazing. He was much less conceited and his age was apparant. I think you really got inside his character. James' parents were very convincing as well. I liked how you explained their meeting.

Stuff to work on:
"“You’re looking for a compartment to sit in?” Sirius asked " If this is from James' POV how would he already know Sirius' name?

"then took place next to the window." you need an 'a' between took and place

"“He is a Prefect, you say? How does one become perfect?” he asked curiously." I'm not sure if this was intentional, but isn't the second one supposed to say prefect as well?

"He assumed now that they are dead." This might sound better as He assumed that they were dead.

"Never mind! Truth is I’ve told them that I’d like to be in Gryffindor house. So they got angry and decided that I wasn’t worth a good-bye.” I loved this line! It was so in character and true about his family

“I haven’t eaten anything this day." I think it would sound better as today.

Sometimes when you keep saying their names at the end of the sentences it sounds oddly formal. Even though they just met they are young and wouldn't stay formal for long, especially without their parents there.

I just wanted to point out the Peter is not Neville. I will read on to see what happens, but he reminded me too much of Neville to be pleased with his character.

Other than Peter I absolutely loved the story and am excited to read on.

Hey, I really enjoyed this story. I think it is very cleverly written and interesting.

Who is Desslok?

I absolutely adore this chapter. I actually wish that it was Draco/Ginny because it would make such a good story. I love your writing skills and everything about it. You could feel all the emotions.

For the rivals challenge in the BA I am going to make a banner for this story...do you mind? I really love it.

Panacea by deanine

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: A post-Hogwarts oneshot with Harry and Luna in an established relationship. It's a little fluffy and a little funny. This is a guilty pleasure, that will leave you with a sweet taste in your mouth. Follows Disengaged.
Reviewer: KenTuck Signed
Date: 05/22/06 Title: Chapter 1: Panacea

I really enjoyed this fic. I read a long while ago, but I forgot to review. It is such a guilty pleasure to read, yet so entertaining. My favorite part was "If she was going to be three minutes late no matter what, she might as well enjoy her morning and be an hour late." I wish that was how everyone lived. I think you did a really nice job on this.

Also, your banner maker is making you a gorgeous banner (I saw it in the Critique Center)

Finality by Eilime

Rated: Professors •
Summary: One-shot

He tore, bit, sucked, breathed, scratched at her as her flailing arms and legs won no victory.

She stood in silence for a while, knowing but not caring that he still stood behind her. She heard him mutter something and warmth surrounded her. A figment of imagination. An unreal cover.


Though she was warm, it didn’t reach her body, her mind, her soul. She was freezing.

A hand came to rest on her arm.

This time, she let him.

At that moment, Hell froze over.

Warning: Contains mention of rape. Nothing graphic.

2nd story in a series of Hermione/Draco one-shots (Check out my author page for more information)

I think this is a fantastic story, written very well. You had a very hard topic to write about and did it very well. I know that Harry wouldn't do that in the books, but it was an interesting plot turn. Good job.

Author's Response: Thank you so much. I\'m pleased to hear you thought I handled the topic well. Thank you for seeing the purpose of Harry\'s position, thank you!

This is great so far! It should have a major spoiler warning on it, but its really good at getting you informed and I can't wait to read the second chapter. I like the story by Ginny's point of view.

Vorona- This is amazing! I don't know how you could but you really should try to advertise it more. I'm more into Romance and Comedy fics but I really got into this one. I'm so glad that you are beta reading my work, when I see what you have done for yourself. Awesome work.
