Summary: Charming, courageous, athletic, rebellious, and Hogwart’s number one heartthrob: a reputation Sirius Black has cherished since First Year. Unfortunately for Sirius, his worst enemy overhears the one little secret that could ruin his reputation in an instant. The Marauders have to stop their enemy before the secret can spread through Hogwarts. If they fail, the perfect life as Sirius knows it will end.
Warning: extreme OOC content and general ridiculous randomness.
Oh, God, you're funny! I especially liked James resisting the urge to cuddle the squirrel.
Please keep this going.
Author's Response: I agree! God is certainly funny. Maybe Bailey and I got a little humor from Him? More chapters are to come.
WTF? I think I missed something.
Author's Response: It's possible. Snape told Sirius to sing to McGonagall or else he would reveal Sirius' secret. Sirius comes up with the idea of fooling Snape into believing he isn't afraid of squirrels (and then could not be blackmailed). Snape doesn't believe it. So, Sirius still has to sing to McGonagall.
Excellent! Not only a reasonable and well-thought-out betrayal, but a decent explanation for the fear of squirrels to be reasonable. Keep going!
Author's Response: Thank you! It mean a lot when a reader approves. :) I hope you enjoy the last chapter.
Hmm... I agree with Snape about the grammatical errors, but wouldn't it be easier for him to use this knowledge for black-mail purposes? (No pun intended.)
Author's Response: Snape gets his fair share of blackmail opportunity later on. Thanks for your suggestion!
Hmm... not quite as good as ones past (though still excellent!) I did like Sirius trying to explain untrue blackmail. It made no sense.
Author's Response: :) In my opinion, Sirius was crazy before he ever went to Azkaban. (But that's just me.) Thank you for reviewing!
Wow... that was very unproductive, wasn't it?
Author's Response: Thank you for reviewing! Yes, the Marauders are a bit slow at getting things done, but as the urgency to find a solution picks up, they will work harder to save Sirius from complete humiliation.
That was fascinating. I hope the next one is less embarrassing... but of course it won't be.
Author's Response: No, Sirius will never see mercy... at least not yet. Thanks for reading. :)
Summary: Grand sweeping AU. What if there was no Harry Potter? No “Chosen One” to stand between the Dark Lord and his quest to rule the world? This is a question that one rogue Death Eater set into motion and, in another frame of time that was torn from our own, it has been answered none too prettily. It is in this world that three heroes must unite to salvage the remains of humanity’s goodness left behind in the whirlwind of violence and oppression that have scarred it so deeply.
Callie Conleth is a beautiful, brilliant, and charming young witch whose seemingly pureblood heritage grants her an enormous blanket of protection while she works as a spy for the Order of the Capricorn with her partner, Jerry. This blanket, however, did not save the person she loved most, her elder—werewolf— brother, Gary, from “disappearing” when the Dark Regime conquered North America. Nor has it afforded her any peaceful sleep when she knows how all of her Muggle and Muggle-born neighbors have mysteriously vanished as well. Always thinking one-step ahead, Callie acts with fire running in her veins.
Mel Cúchulainn, childhood friend of both Callie and Jerry, is a Dragon Rider who, thanks to the treaty the Rider Tribes have signed, has kept on the outside of the great wizarding war. A blind eye is not something that settles well with the fierce, skilled, and tenacious Mel—or many other Riders either—and she, along with her Dragon, Chance, finds herself in a unique position to help change the Tribes’ minds. Cool headed and deadly, Mel fights with all the might of her soul.
Jerry Moore also finds nothing for himself in the pureblood credo that the Dark Regime holds. Brave, intuitive, and jovial to most people, Jerry’s smile hides a sensitive young man who cannot accept a world that offers little to no protection for not only helpless humans but also elves, centaurs, and other so-called “half-breeds” persecuted beneath the new rule. With a chivalrous intent to defend those in need, Jerry always looks with the inner eye of his heart.
The winds of change are blowing and whether for bad or good only time will tell. What is certain, however, is that these three friends will be very close to the eye of the storm as it rages. They are unique magicians bound together by the past, love, and fate, but is even the steely resolve of the young a match for an army of Death Eaters? With hope such fragile thing in this war-ravaged world is mankind lost without a “Chosen One” to lead the way? Or can fire, strength, and sight be found before it’s too late? The path is dark and painful but does that mean our heroes cannot travel it? Find out the answers to these questions and more in: Intus Temporis Infractus.
Very interesting. I am interested to discover what Mel is.
Author's Response: Thank you :)
Very interesting. I appreciate your explanation of the butterfly effect and multiple universe theories. I will follow this story with great interest.
Author's Response: Thank you very much. I'm glad that you've enjoyed it thus far and hope it doesn't disappoint down the road. :)
Summary: Lord Voldemort is desperate to kill Harry Potter but what he doesn't know is that magic is ever-surprising. This fic follows his one-day adventure in a dragon reservation, in which circumstances lead to a twisted ending.
I am Vittoria of Ravenclaw House submitting my fic for the Third Task of the Mugglenet Triwizard Tournament.
Thanks to Viv for the awesome prompts and help and Apurva my wonderful beta!
Hmm... interesting story. I'm not sure protagonist is the right word... anti-hero might be more appropriate. The last line was amusing.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! The use of the word 'protagonist' was intended actually. XD
Summary: Abigail Sampson Black lived for almost fifteen years away from the love of her life. She raised his son alone.
Her love for him never wavered. Her heart beat only for him. What happens when in a moment of anger she lashes out and those are the last words he hears from her? With her love dead, Abby just doesn’t have the will to go on.
This is loosely based on the song, ‘Beaches of Cheyenne’ by Garth Brooks. It was going to be a songfic but my muse had another idea.
This is a companion one-shot to The Unknown Heir. It also ties into Love Beyond Forever. This is the story of Abby’s death that Skylar refers to in chapter two of The Unknown Heir.
Wow... powerful story. I haven't read the other two, but this one easily stands alone. My only criticism is that this made me more depressed than your last e-mail.
Author's Response: I guess I should have put a tearjerker warning on it. If you read the other two, each stands alone, but to go in order, read Love Beyond Forever first. Thank you for your review. Terri
Summary: What ever happened to Sirius Black, infamous Marauder? Everything in his life is going wrong: his grades slip, his abuse from his parents is no longer a secret. His friends know he’s sick, but they can’t stop him. Anorexia is all he has left. MWPP
Interesting concept. I've worked with similar themes before, but never to this extreme. I like the way you used Peter's viewpoint for the second chapter, since he's one of the characters we hear the least from. Keep it coming!
Summary: A normal afternoon turns into a odd one for the Trio when a random boy shows up, a character who is convinced he is an authentic British lad. He is sadly mistaken.
An excellent satire on Americans trying to sound British! All too often I notice misused words and phrases throughout stories, and this story was rather amusing. Good job!
Author's Response: Thank you :)
Summary: Remus and Sirius have always had a special bond, a shared secret. When Remus needs someone to talk to about Tonks, he turns to his oldest friend. The very friend he shared years of late night talks with.
I wish to thank my beta, Alyssa (harry4lif).
I do not own anything you recognise in this story. It all belongs to J.K. Rowling. I am just thankful to be able to play in her world for a little while.
Excellent analysis of our Peter, and of Sirius and Remus. I love it when Moony's such a stick-in-the-mud!
Summary: After facing ten Death Eaters alone, where else would a man go but to his best friend? However, instead of the man, he got the wife. Better for him? Maybe...
How do you comfort your husband’s best friend when he has come close to death? Over a cup of tea, of course.
I do not own anything you recognise. It all belongs to J.K. Rowling. I am just thankful to be able to escape to her world for a little while.
Ah, how we act around different people. I think this is one of the best stories I've read all week!
Summary: In an act of sheer desperation, Albus Dumbledore attends a book signing and invites Gilderoy Lockhart, the heroic adventurer and celebrated author, to fill a final teaching position at Hogwarts.
This is Racing Co of Gryffindor submitting for the Gift of Gab challenge.
LOVE IT! Your characterization of both Dumbledore and Lockhart was spot on! Of course Dumbledore would ask about the robes.
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Lockhart has quickly become one of my favorites, if only for his incredible ineptness.
Summary: Susan and Philippe Bones Gardien find a box with lots of letters below the floorboards of their living room and want to find out who wrote them. They discover a family tragedy while in the middle of a journey towards their own adventure: the arrival of their first child.
I am luinrina of Hufflepuff House, and this is my entry for the Bookbasilisk Summer one-shot challenge, One Flew Over The Fwooper’s Nest.
It's sweet, with just the right mixture of mystery and anxiety, joy and worry. I love the ending.
Summary: Remus tries to make sense of a mission gone wrong by asking Sirius about it. Bad idea. Very, very bad idea.
I enjoyed this story immensely, particularly the way Sirius told the story to Remus. It was just like a conversation in the way they both spoke and how random it got.
Author's Response: I teach kindergarten, so I have a lot of these kinds of 'backwards' conversations trying to figure out who has done what to whom. (Is it a bad thing that I'm comparing Sirius to a kindergartner?) Thanks for reading and letting me know you liked this!
Summary: In the summer of 1995, Percy Weasley was forced between two things of great importance to him: his family and his career. Did he make the right decision?
I love this story. How has it gotten no reviews? I think you portrayed Percy's regret and guilt excellently. You make him seem human and less of a prat than we see in the books. Great job! Don't stop writing!
PoA era: Severus Snape takes a thoughtful stroll down Diagon Alley at the start of the Christmas holidays, but it soon turns into a quite a harrowing ordeal for our favourite Potions Master... UK English. Contains some dark humour. You have been warned!
Characters: Severus Snape, Fred Weasley, George Weasley, Ginny Weasley, Molly Weasley, Percy Weasley and (very) minor OC's.
Trust me, your Snape is perfect. I love how you got every angle of his personality into the story. My only issue is that Snape didn't know that James and Sirius were Animagi at Christmas of PoA. Although the references were funny, I do not believe they fit in canon. Other than that, it was perfect.
Oops. Technical slip on my part that I really should have caught. That'll irritate me forever now. Oh, well. Can't change it now without stuffing up a good part of the story (unless I pretend he learned about it somehow from Dumbledore in the course of their quirky friendship).
Still, I'm delighted that apart from that wee error, you enjoyed it as a whole. Portraying Snape was tricky, but still quite a lot of fun - especially when I wrote the scene with the Weasley's.
Thanks for R & R-ing, m'dear,
Kara's Aunty ;)
