Summary: It's Christmas, 1998. The first Christmas since the Battle of Hogwarts, and, coincidentally, the first Christmas George Weasley has spent without his twin.
Wallowing in misery and dwelling on the very real emptiness George feels, he abandons his family at The Burrow and all its Christmas trappings, and heads for his bare, unfestive flat above the shop. However, someone unexpected arrives to try and remind him that at this time of year, he should be celebrating and doing best to honour Fred's memory in style.

The Christmas Carol
Author's Response: Yes, it's what the challenge is about. Err... thanks for the review. Sarah x
Summary: It's Christmas Eve, 1998, and Harry Potter is throwing a pity party. You could argue that Harry Potter is more justified than most in throwing such a party. Severus Snape, however, would be inclined to disagree with you.
I am LilyLunaPotter of Hufflepuff submitting to Prompt Four of the 2010 Great Hall Christmas Challenge.
Lol the Christmas Carl. I love it
Author's Response: Aw, thank you! ~LiLu
For over four years, Dean Thomas had been sending his polite regrets to his mum, begging off of coming home for Christmas. But when he sensed discord in the most recent letter from his Muggle family, he decided that he needed to stop making excuses and start counting his blessings.
What he found when he got there, however, proved to be more than just a simple family gathering.

Dudley Dursley must face what would probably be his Boggart, and Harry Potter's Auror Department is under constant public criticisms for ,seemingly, related dark and sinister incidents he just cannot seem to solve.

It was going to happen eventually: Oliver Wood had to retire. But when the decision was made for him, he allowed himself to be tricked into grooming his replacement. However, coaching proved to be a completely different animal, especially when the untried and unbridled Roxanne Weasley pushed his limits every step of the way.
This story was nominated for a 2011 Quicksilver Quill Award: Best Non-Canon Romance.
See, our boy Oliver has a sense of humour. He MIGHT be joking about the split thing, but the world may never know. :D
Thanks for reading, and I'm glad you enjoyed the story.
Summary: He's getting married today. Why wouldn't he be elated?
Warning is for mild implications only
perfect just perfect
Author's Response: thanks... I was a little nervous because it was my first
Summary: "I don't wanna parachute into love,
No, I wanna skydive
And fall until we fly, live until we die together,
If heaven is my home, you could only make it better."
-Skydive, Jason Reeves
Seventh Year at Hogwarts is about much more than memorizing all the lessons for the upcoming N.E.W.Ts. It's about falling in love with someone you least expected to, about realizing who you are and what you want to do. It's about friendship, laughter, and the first steps towards a great betrayal. You strengthen the bonds already made and reconnect with someone you've had a fallout with.
Everyday Voldemort gets stronger, and the outside world becomes more real and more frightening. Lily, Marlene and the Marauders learn what it means to fall in love, what true friendship is, how to let go, and what is most important in life. Because not growing up is not an option. And some things are worth fighting for.
I have a question is Fabian still in Hogswart? And if he is why isn't his twin brother Gideon in school. So far I really like it
Author's Response: When I started adding Fabian in I did lots of looking to see if he and Gideon were twins and everything I found was only theory, so I took the liberty of making Gideon older. So yes, in my story Fabian in still at Hogwarts in his sixth year.
Summary: Al and Rose contemplate how to say those three little words.
Ok its cute, but doesn't stop being gross.
Author's Response: I just thought that after 17 years of friendship, it might have grown to be a bit more, no matter if they were related. After all, there arn't that many witches and wizards to choose from, Hagrid said himself, if they didn't marry Muggles they'd die out. Well, some of the families decided other ways would suffice. This isn't exactly what Rose and Albus were doing, it was more of a friendship that turned to love. This isn't unusual in other stories, if they arn't related, but I don't think it would make a HUGE difference if they were. Thanks for the reveiw!
Summary: Dominique Weasley’s life is a mess. At seventeen years of age, she’s in her final year at Hogwarts, and things couldn’t be going any worse. She’s failing most of her NEWT classes, her perfect mother is driving her crazy, she’s practically a magnet for trouble and she hates Felix Thomas with a burning passion.
And now she’s pregnant.
lmao!!! I love it!
Author's Response: Aww, thanks! And thanks for reviewing!
Summary: Love is a very bizarre form of emotion. People can die for it. People can kill for it…
Rose Weasley is in her fifth year at Hogwarts. Love is in the air, but so is exam fever; and Hogwarts is heavy with a weird combination of nervous cheesiness. But isn’t this the story every year? It’s normal. It’s right.
And then everything goes wrong.
A student— Rose’s classmate dies tragically and unexpectedly one day. The death sends shock waves through Rose and her friends, staggering them to a great extent. Furthermore, investigations conducted by Rose’s Uncle Harry reveal a startling piece of information, placing everybody in even more shock. The death is, in fact homicide— and homicide committed by a student. Soon enough, Relationships are strained, faiths are broken and hatred is intensified. That is when Rose realises that she is not prepared to face any of it; and all she craves is for things to be the way they were before the tragedy…
This is a story about how love can make people cross the limits they never knew... a story of how love combined with obsession, deceit and jealousy can be as destructive of hatred.
