I sat down last night and read this entire story in one sitting. I couldn't stop till I was done! It's extremely moving and compelling. I can't wait till the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Love your moniker by the way (is there a Lil Abner somewhere in your life?).

Just wanted to let you know how avidly I've been following this wonderful story. The portrayal of the characters and plot are fantastic Can't wait for the next chapter!
Thanks for sharing-
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I read one of your stories a couple of years ago and just loved it. It was \'Dear Mrs. Potter\' and I thought it was just terrific. I\'ll have to go check and see if you\'ve written anything else, because that one was definitely a favorite of mine. Appreciate your comments. Thanks again!
His fears? Flying...his own wand...fitting in...sticking out! His best friends? A passionate fire-breathing cousin, and a cool, aloof Death Eater's son. His destiny? Anything but ordinary!
Join Albus as he experiances his first year at Hogwarts and begins the journey out from under his father's collosal shadow, if he can survive it of course!
Meet the new Tenacious Trio, Albus Potter, Scorpius Malfoy, and Rose Weasley
I've had this one on my list to read for a while and I just sat and read it all in one sitting! WOW! I'm completely hooked. Can't wait for the next chapter.
Thanks I am doing my best. I finally found another mod who will work with me, instead of "protect the quality of this website" if you know what I mean. So I might be able to get my chapters out quicker...we'll see.
thanks for reviewing.

Summary: This story is for the Written Word Challenge (Spring Term 2009).
Rose can purge her feelings. Cho can eat until she can't feel. Andromeda can starve herself until she feels nothing at all. These three girls have one thing in common. An eating disorder.
Thank you for your amazing honesty. This is beautifully written. Having been there, done that, got the scars (literally and figuratively) I want to say you CAN make it. You CAN come out the other side. If you'd ever like to talk send me a message on my LJ. I'd be happy to listen.

I'm very intrigued and looking forward to the next chapter. Good beginning!
Author's Response: Thanks!
Summary: I hadn't seen him since I was eleven, but he had a rather distinct look about him. It was hard, after all, to forget that black hair that stuck up in the back and the bright green eyes behind those glasses. And the scar — I had always thought it neat to have a scar shaped like a lightening bolt.
Jane Martin sees the odd, quiet boy she went to primary school with years ago in a jewellery shop and she's shocked to see how much things have changed for the boy with taped glasses and baggy clothes. *one-shot*
This is so lovely, both the gutwrenching view of Harry as a lonely little boy, and the joyful view of the nervous young man in love. Great job!
Author's Response: Thanks! Harry must have had such a sad childhood, but everything ends up so happy for him! I'm glad you liked the story :)
Summary: George Weasley struggles to live his life without Fred. But help is at hand in the form of a little old woman with a very scary hat... Sequel to 'Educating Rita'. Rated for slight language. UK English.
I absolutely adore this whole series! The characterizations are fantastic, the humor and angst are both amazing. I always love stories that make me laugh and cry at the same time. This is definitely one of them. Thank you so much for sharing.
well, I'm very flattered that you think so highly of it! Trying to inject a little humour into George's grief was the only way I could bear to write this because I'm still gutted myself at Fred's death (who isn't)!
And thank YOU so much for R & R-ing!
Kara's Aunty :)
Summary: Inspired by Lily's gloomy mood on a rainy day, Severus spots the perfect gift to cheer her up. If only he could afford it...
This is lovely! I have tears in my eyes.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm so glad my writing touched you.

Wow-you're awesome-totally a girl after my own heart. You just used a song by Ingrid Michaelson and one by Sooj! (SJ Tucker.) Fabulous songs and a gripping story. Can't wait for the next chapter
Author's Response: Thanks! :) My music taste is a bit eclectic... lots of random folk and wizard rock! I'm glad you're enjoying the story and the lyrics as well!
This has become one of my favorite stories. A great pairing done extremely well. Thanks for sharing!
Summary: "My marriage is falling apart for no apparent reason," she declares.
Ginny Potter loves her husband, loves her children, and loves her life. At least, she used to. But things are changing, and she's not sure why. *one-shot*
This touched me in such a deep place. I can't stop crying! (and yes, that's a good thing!) Beautiful work.
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you liked it :)
Everything was beautiful, and Hannah felt calmer than she had all day; she felt all of the unsettled thoughts beginning to find their places in her frazzled mind.
Oh, I have tears in my eyes! This is lovely and moving, great job!
Author's Response: Thanks so much. :)
The Wizarding War is over.
Auror training has begun and Harry and Ron find that their lives are centred round London and the Ministry of Magic.
For Ginny and Hermione there is the inevitable return to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Their lives are centred round schooling in Scotland.
Do these divided duos have different destinations and divergent destinies? When, where and how can these parted pairings meet? Opportunities are limited to holidays, Hogsmeade visits and school Quidditch matches.

I'm really enjoying this story! Loved the tip of the hat to "Daughters of the Witching Hill" too-one of my favorite books. Good work!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I admit that your comments about "Daughters of the Witching Hill" confused me. I have neither read (nor even heard of) the book. However, after some research, I think that I will! I know about the Pendle Witch trials, and the names of the (real-life) “witches.” I pinched a few names. -N-
Summary: When Molly Weasley worries, she cooks.
This is absolutely gorgeous. I have tears in my eyes. Molly's emotions and reactions are so true-to-life here. Great job!
Author's Response: I'm really glad you liked the story. Since I am a mother it was very easy to identify with her feelings in each of the situations. I think that's what made the story real for me as I was writing it and I'm glad that came across. Thanks for your review.
Summary: Six weeks after the battle, Hermione puts on a bathing suit for the first time in nearly a year... scars are revealed as painful memories rise to the surface yet again.
I almost submitted this under dark/angst, but at the end of the day, I see it as Ron/Hermione. *shrug* Also, a gazillion thanks to my awesometastic beta Natalie, and to both Neil and Carole for helping me with all things British. :D
Oh, this is so lovely! It seems as though all of the characters are scarred in some way. I love how Hermione realized that and lets Ron love her. Great work!
Author's Response: I'm so glad you liked it. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. :)
Summary: The seven women who loved Ron Weasley.
Oh, I'm sitting here bawling! This is just amazing, gorgeous and lots of other adjectives I'd think of if I were more coherent. I'm sending a rec to a friend of mine who doesn't understand my Ron obsession. This explains it perfectly.
Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much! I'm glad you thought it did justice to Ron :)
Summary: A look at moments of Ron and Hermione's life through the years. The narrative alternates between their two POV.
For those of us that wonder what Ron and Hermione's life would be like through the years.
This is so lovely and moving! Like the others, I was tearing up. Great work!
Author's Response: Thank you!
Summary: Long before there was Severus Snape, children the world over enjoyed the antics of a different, green-faced sourpuss. In parody and tribute, a melding of the two just in time for the holidays. Wishing all the participants at Mugglenet a very merry Christmas.
SPOILER ALERT for anyone who is not aware of the true identity of the Half-Blood Prince.
~~Nominated for 2011 Quicksilver Quills, Best Humor Story~~
Oh, this is hilarious! Great job!
Author's Response: I’m thrilled that you liked it. Fifty rewrites later, I finally think I do, too.
Summary: Draco has never heard of Astoria Greengrass. Nor has anyone else for that matter.
They meet one night at her sister's engagement party and while she may be troubled and detached, Draco quickly finds himself worryingly obsessed. But Astoria has a secret, one that the Greengrass family have kept buried since her childhood and one that she is ever-desperate to escape.
