Hello everyone who decided to grace this boring page!

I am a native Floridian, recent college graduate, happily married (even though the hubby doesn't understand the obession...)! I have been reading for years, but only recently taken a dive into writing. I'm a proud Hufflepuff and have recently taken to drabbling as well, so some of those might turn into stories as well.

Moments Series:

This series highlights important, pivotal moments in a characters' life.

It did not start as a series, but has taken flight in my mind, and you can't really tell those things "no", can you?

Each summary is purposefully vague, for telling you the moment ahead of time is anticlimatic, in my opinion.

Behind those Emerald Eyes by makinmagic323
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 2008]

Summary: Ten years have elapsed since Dumbledore's death and McGonagall has Hogwarts back on its feet again. Hermione and Malfoy both teach at the school. But when a new teacher is hired to teach Defense Against the Dark Arts, everyone seems to feel that they've met him before. A story of mystery, passion, friendship, and jealousy… not to mention that Harry Potter has been missing for ten years and Voldemort is dead. (All violence is mild).

NEXT CHAPTER VALIDATED

Ohhh, good stuff! I don't know if my reviews help or not, never left a review before, but I'm leaving them! I feel like this story is something that could realistically take place in the world, like it fits in with their characters and who they are still. It's not ridiculously far-fetched, which I like.

Author's Response: why thank you! i\'m not a fan of ridiculously far-fetched ideas either =) and your reviews do help -- review give me the motivation to write!

Oh, I know this is so close to finishing and I can't wait, it's so good! I've been reading the whole thing up to this chapter and I was so disappointed when I realized that I was going to have to wait for the next one!!

Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m glad you\'re enjoying the tale. Yes, it is quite close to the end, I\'m afraid - I\'m currently writing the next chapter as I note this. However, there is a sense of relief and fulfillment in finishing this piece, I must admit. I\'ve already begun the next story, and it is crying to get my full attention. ;-) It is my hope that I\'ll get quite a bit done tonight, and will soon have Chapter 33 in queue soon. It is a short chapter, so it may not take quite as long. * * * Thanks, again!

 

Summary: After his failed attempt on Dumbledore's life, Draco seeks refuge at the Order of the Phoenix. Sent back to Hogwarts with suspicious title of Head Boy, he is forced to share a dormitory with none other than Hermione Granger. But with war looming on the horizon and another danger even closer to home, their seventh year of Hogwarts is anything but ordinary.

A story of compelling intrigue, hidden motives, dangerous secrets, and obvious passion. Animagi, Quidditch, the Order of the Phoenix. Masquerades and riddles. Hate and love. Pleasure and pain. A blend of contradictions that, for two people, makes a truly unforgettable final year. Slow moving D/Hr with plenty of plot.

This story was achingly fluffly, but extremely sweet. And I like the fluff. :)

The tone it took on at the end was still aching, but it became achingly bittersweet, as we know they really don't have much time left.

It was a nice little picture of two characters we don't get to see very often (and one we don't get to see nice!). Nice work.

 

Killer Instincts by Ginny Weasley Potter
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 228]

Summary: London: Four murders have taken place under bizarre circumstances, for what seems to be an equally bizarre reason.

Harry, a happily wedded man with a wonderful wife and a cute daughter, is an Auror at the Ministry of Magic and is now given a new case to solve with Ron and four other Aurors. Incidentally, the four Aurors include Ginny, Harry’s ‘schoolboy crush’; and it turns out to be much more than a crush when Harry sees her again. What’s more is that Harry is working upon a case that seems to connect to him directly. And once again, it opens up old fears: fears of losing loved ones.

Ron, on the other hand, seems to be tired of Hermione. Tempers are running high and fights are breaking out more often than usual. Are they really falling apart? Or can they sort this out before it is too late?

Then there is the case itself. Who is trustworthy, and who is not? Who is deadly enough to murder four people in cold blood?

Indulge into the gut-wrenching action, combined with warm romance and tingling suspense; while I tell you a story of love, ambition and obsession… a story of what those killer instincts can do. EDIT: MAJOR revamping going on, with regard to plot, characterisation, and general style of writing. I would urge you not to read this until I've removed this notice because I wasn't very good six years ago, and this is as bad as I was. *Places traffic cones*

I thought, after your beginning A/N, that this chapter might become wordy and overwhelming about an event or a culture that I was unfamiliar with rather than a story, but I thought it was a beautifully written chapter that kept everyone in character and still managed to keep the reader informed of a new and beautiful ceremony. As there were a lot of steps and differences from Western culture (which, I may be completely off in assuming that a majority of readers are unfamiliar with this anyway), I was very impressed with how you interweaved the emotions and characterizations in with the explanations.

I thought the descriptions were lovely as well, in particular the description of Harry and his attire in the 2nd paragraph. I also (and this is something I think I'll be repeating) LOVE your characterization of Padme and Pavarti, Ron, and Harry. I think it's spot on. Ron's "pep talk" to Harry before the wedding, Pavarti as the bride and helping Harry out, Padme watching her twin get married, and Harry - so nervous but unwilling to not go through with it. I particularly like the part where he has to put the vermillion on her part and he "stares at it numbly" for a second before being able to do it.

I was confused in the first paragraph what it said "the people belonging to the bride's side were wearing traditional Christian gowns and suits while the people from the side of the bridegroom were dressed in saris and sherwanis - the traditional Hindu attire." | Is that backwards?

When it mentions Ginny and Percy, it says that "Percy was still staying separately" and was thus not invited to the wedding. Does that mean he's still in strife with the rest of the family? It was worded oddly, but that was the impression that I got.

Overall, I am interested to see how Harry's life turns out with Pavarti...though the summary leads me to believe it's not all roses and sunshine! :)

 
Reviewer: ahattab33 Signed
Date: 07/28/09 Title: Chapter 2: The New Case

Hmmmm...romance! Love triangle! :) I really enjoy the way this story is written, it is very enjoyable and easy to read. Again, for the most part I really like the characterization of pretty much everyone, lol. Father!Harry is just a dear, and his daughter sounds extremely cute and like she has him wrapped around her finger. And he is so clueless about his surprise party, especially considering she gave him one the year before.

I am conflicted on how I feel about Harry and Ginny's initial meeting. Harry being older and married (with a child) - I'm not sure he'd be quite so blatant about how he feels about Ginny, if he even felt that way. Perhaps he would have felt conflicted at first, though that confusion was there, his behavior made it obvious - the staring and forgetting what was being asked of him. Ron was shocked he liked her in sixth year, so I'm not sure he would be so obvious now as an adult.

Harry does seem somewhat emotionally stunted still at times, but still true to his noble side. I found myself thinking he should NEVER let Pavarti know he is thinking that "he had to repay her by loving her as much as she loved him." Ouch! But I do agree, as a married women for three years now, that men are still, and will always be, clueless. :)

It made me giggle when they were talking about the murderer being a woman because they were a fan of Harry's. Not going to explore the fact that it might be a man in love with Harry?! He's so irresistible!! :)

I was surprised that no one told Ginny they were married. And Harry seemed to know she didn't know. I know Hermione explains it later, but I still thought it was odd. Someone getting married is a pretty big deal, so if she had come back from training, I would have assumed someone would have told her, especially considering he now also has a kid. Are we assuming that this is the first time she's coming into the country? I guess I'm surprise her mother was able to not say anything.

I totally wanted to run into the story and yell at Harry for yelling at Pavarti about her garlic! If that makes sense, lol. I like the career you've chosen for her, and the maturity level you've given her, while still maintaining her personality and the Pavarti we knew in the books.

One small note, I'm not sure that Hermione (or anyone) would say (as opposed to write in a note or something) "b'day".

Sorry if the review is haphazd...I read this a few days ago on paper, and I'm skimming through the notes I took down. Onto Chapter 3!

Date: 07/28/09 Title: Chapter 3: A Very Special Birthday

Once again, I am impressed with your characterization. I have an immense dislike for stories where Ron is a bumbling idiot or has no real part, and you have matured Ron and made him an Auror partner, a father, and a husband. His ability to see the reality behind Harry and Pavarti's relationship, and to notice what is happening with Harry and Ginny is something due to maturity and, probably, his relationship with Hermione. And yet, he's still Ron. My favorite: "You look prettier than the way you looked at Harry's wedding! How do you women manage this?"

And Hermione's response: "Stop flattering me." :) She is so cute, researching Indian greetings, just for Harry's birthday party.

Some suggestions on ways to explain thigs better to the readers: There is a paragraph towards the middle where the food is being explained, there are parenthsis when Pavarti is explaining out loud. I'm not sure if dialogue normally has parenthesis, so maybe the beginning would be something like: "That is dhal makhani, which has black lentils and a cream gravy; the palak paneer is cubes of cottage cheese in a spinach puree; and this here is called chicken tandoori masala, where the pieces of chicken are in an orange gravy.

Or, if the descriptions are soley for our sake, and the party-goers can see that chicken tandoori masala is chicken in orange gravy, then it could be as simple as adding an ending A/N explaining what they are.

As I'm now reading that part with my notes, I have to comment that I liked that Harry couldn't eat the spicy foods. Maybe it's because I imagined Pavarti and Padme (and maybe Ginny, hehe) could.

There was an inconsistency in that Hermione and Ron had to drive, but the Weasley family could Disapparate home.

And oh, I couldn't believe Harry was so insensitive to say that about Ginny fancying him at school! I wasn't even worried about Pavarti's reaction, because she remembered, I was more concerned because I thought Ginny was sitting at the table! Talk about an uncomfortable situation...jerk! But Ginny and Pavarti had a lovely conversation, and once again I am struck by how wonderful you characterize everyone.

Date: 07/28/09 Title: Chapter 4: Argument Over Breakfast

Hmmmm...this is the chapter I took the least amount of notes on, so this won't be as fulfilling (if the other ones can be considered so) as the other chapters.

Charaterization is still on par...Harry trusting his gut instinct at the end of the chapter, Pavarti trusting him, Hermione being a terrible liar are just a few examples.

I thought the scene at the table was great. I was waiting for her hair to set on fire or something - Irene's. Something about the way you wrote Pavarti made me seriously respect her - and feel bad for her, what a horrible person! I hope Hermione comes up with something horrible as revenge for her that is sneaky like Marietta's SNEAK face or something.

It should be quite interesting in that house with these personalities and relationship dynamics. And the personal aspect of the case itself.

And what is up with Ron?!

Date: 07/31/09 Title: Chapter 5: Rebecca Palmer

Overall - upping the mystery, definitively! :) I like the balance between slowing introducing the new characters, revealing new pieces of the puzzle and new information, but keeping us intrigued.

Irene - blah! She is stinky. But is there an ulterior motive? Hmmmm…glad Hermione is suspicious.

Hermione needs to give a good Dracoesque punch to Ron and have a nice shouting match like they used to have. Maybe it'll get him all good and riled up…haha. But seriously, I felt bad for her! But, I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt....for now.

And Harry…*sigh. He was so sweet in the beginning of the chapter. Ugh! But staring at Ginny like that, right in front of Pavarti! For shame!

Ginny snuggling with Naina is super cute, though a bit sad, as I'm sure a (large) part of her wishes she were snuggling with her and Harry's own child.

I'm still very impressed with your characterization, especially of Pavarti. A great illustration of this is when they are talking about why the killer, if they are obsessed with Harry, would want her dead. Any normal person can see the selfish nature in people, but Pavarti doesn't - she wants the person she loves to be happy, and is confusing the love with obsession. I still think that sometimes Harry's reactions to Ginny are over the top, such as when he stares at her or stutters, right in front of his wife.

I’m assuming a crche is a crib?

I was surprised when Ron told Rebecca that "Of course, and if you want, you can decide the punishment. Is that okay?” That seemed somewhat…unprofessional? Would he be allowed to do that? But Rebecca Palmer seems like a very complex and intriguing person, and I'll be interested to see what she has to say in the next chapter.

 

The Pursuit by MagEd
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 375]

Summary: Harry and Ginny are happily married with a baby on the way. When they manipulate Ron and Hermione into both meeting them for lunch, the last thing anyone expected was for Harry and Ginny to be kidnapped.

Suddenly Ron and Hermione are left with nothing more than a note and the realization it’s up to them to follow the clues and rescue the couple they both love and adore. If only the clues weren't nonsense. If only they knew who could possibly have taken Harry and Ginny. If only they didn’t hate each other. If only they hadn’t once loved each other.

Life just got a whole lot more complicated for Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.

*Completed*

OF COURSE I pick this story up on one of the last cliff hangers!! And probably the biggest!! It's a great story - I like the plot, the twists and turns, and Ron and Hermione's relationship. You've got me guessing and anticipating the next chapter!! Great story! Sorry, that was a lot of exclamation points. :)

I did enjoy! I love Ginny, and I've had moments reading DH where I've imaged how horrible it must feel to see him dead, and then how incredible it must feel to see him alive again...I thought you captured it wonderfully. At least, how I might have imagined it if I had any writing talent what so ever. :) I really enjoyed reading this and all your stories, thanks!

Summary: After fighting the biggest battle of his life, Harry Potter finds himself in new, uncharted territory.

Ginny has left for Hogwarts to complete her final year, with Hermione, and Harry is starting work as a full-fledged Auror. They both must find a way to make their long-distance relationship work. Ginny hopes to find peace at school and Harry hopes to build his life around the expectation that Ginny will be with him forever. Despite all of this, there is more to the work that Harry is doing with the Ministry then he realises. Will Gaunt prove trustworthy in these new endeavours? Will Ginny and Hermione have a horror-free year at Hogwarts?

Torn Between Ice and Emeralds by CrystalM
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 105]

Summary: COMPLETED -- A broken-hearted Ginny Weasley lets go of Harry Potter to let him fight the good fight and starts her sixth year at Hogwarts. Draco Malfoy follows Snape back to Death Eater headquarters after Dumbledore's death to even more danger than he had just left, realising too late that he has made his greatest mistake yet. Is anyone likely to forgive him? Finding himself a refugee within the walls he had conspired against, he witnesses a scene that alters his perception of a concept he had previously found to be a waste of time: Love. This change allows him to grow away from the model Death Eater his father had been sculpting him into in an effort to find out what he really believes in with the help of his new friendship found in the youngest Weasley. Meanwhile, Ginny struggles with her harboured feelings for the man destined to save the Wizarding world, unknowingly losing her affections with every passing day to his childhood enemy.
