Summary: Lily Evans, though popular and kind, has at times felt the need to distance herself from the world, to contemplate on the those she loves and those that annoy. On the train ride home to her last summer before her seventh year, she realizes that there are some people that she'll never quite figure out, but that maybe there's more to them than she had ever truly thought.
That was cute. I liked it a lot. Maybe a sequel?
Author's Response: I\'ll consider a sequel. : )
Thank you for reviewing!
Summary: When the Final Battle has past, when the war of all wars has come to an end, what then? What happens after for the Boy, the Man, who lived?
Again, beautifully done. I love all your stories, and this is no exception. You are an excellent writer and always capture emotion wonderfully. I can't wait to read another one of your stories.
Summary: "What's my problem, Ginny, what's my problem? My problem is that you've oh-so-calmly suggested that my best friend has had the dubious pleasure of seeing you starkers!" - A wardrobe malfunction creates problems for one Harry Potter. [H/G, R/H]
That was great. It's nice reading something humerous by you. Not that your other stories aren't great, but it's a nice change! I thought it was very funny. Good job!
Summary: Lily placed the violin on the floor, the sorrowful song only added to her misery. She could still feel Snape’s kiss on her mouth, and wondered why she had done such a thing. Looking up at the doorway she saw James standing there, and a new emotion filled her, something she hadn’t felt before...
I really like this idea. It's a bit different. :) I can't wait to see where you take it.
Author's Response: I like writing things that are different. I\'m really glad that you like it.
Summary: Harry Potter was presumed killed in the Final Battle years ago, and those he left behind moved on, slowly picking up the pieces of the lives that had been shattered by the Second War. However, over a decade after the defeat of evil, a young boy is captured by a desperate man in the search of revenge. Auror Ginny Weasley is assigned to find and rescue Alex Ryerson from the cluches of evil and runs into his muggle father, whose emerald eyes are heartbreakingly familiar.
It seems that secrets cannot stay safe forever...
part ten in queue as of sept. 29th!
[post-hogwarts, Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione]
:D Yay, an update! Great chapter, as always. I'm still quite curious as to who Alex's mother is. Is he even really Harry's son, or did he just sort of adopt him? Ah, the burning questions.
I really love this story, and have to say, am glad you didn't forget about it! I can't wait to see what happens. I'm sure it'll be good, since all of your other stories are amazing. You're definitely my favorite author. :D
Ahh! Cliff! I can't wait to find out what happens. I love all your stories; this one is no different. Great job.
Summary: A little girl playing in her garden drags up unwanted memories for Petunia of her sister and why they drifted apart. More a character study than anything else.
This story was beautiful. I just have to review, although my words probably can't sum it up. The writing was lyrical and beautiful. It all flowed together and engrossed. I can picture Petunia watching out the window, memories engulfing her. I see everything from her perspective. I see her life with Lily and the twist it took.
Lovely. I can't say anything more.
Summary: Lily felt her heart jump into her throat. In fact, all she heard was her heart beating steadily throughout her body. ...Any minute, James Potter is going to walk through that door and sit down. At my table. By me...
I really liked it. It was very cute. I like how you portrait James -- very grown up! The only thing I wasn't fond of was Lily. I always pictured her (through OotP and Jo's information of her) to be popular and independent. In the story, she seems kind of desperate and not very liked by people. Jo said she was very smart and had a lot of friends. I can't see her not going to Hogsmeade because of not having friends or never getting asked out. I liked the story line though :)
Author's Response: I agree with you... To be completely honest, I wrote this before OotP, I think, but I still loved the story when I wrote it so I posted it... Thanks for your opinion, though! :D Yours truly, Amelia Bedelia
Summary: James and Lily spend their summers together producing plays, though neither are happy about the presence of the other. With James, as the set designer, and Lily, as the actress, tensions run high.
I really love this! I really like how you portray James; he's very mature. I found this chapter very nice. I'm glad James and Lily are on a truce, because Lily's anger was getting quite annoying.
I can't wait to see their friendship evolve. I was hoping something like this would happen, or the thief would get sick and James would happen to be the only person who knew the lines and would take over.
Author's Response: I\'m so glad you like James\' character! I absolutely love writing it! As for your theory... you\'ll have to wait and see if it comes true! Thank you for the review! Yours truly, Amelia Bedelia
That was really good! I love the whole Lily scene, when he discovers that she's a witch. I can't wait to read more and see how you take this.
Author's Response: I spent a long time working on that scene to get it just right! I\'m so glad it turned out that well! Yours truly, Amelia Bedelia
Wow, I'm quite in love with James. If Lily doesn't want him, send him this way.
I really enjoy this story, and this chapter! I love the way you portrayed James and Sirius. I can really see Lily actually falling for this James. Lily, on the other hand, is a bit moody and annoying. I hope she mellows out, which I can see beginning to happen.
Can't wait for an update!
Author's Response: Pssh... If Lily doesn\'t take him, you\'re going to have to get through me first! Haha! I\'m so glad you liked this chapter! And, yes, Lily has her flaws... But that\'s what gets her into trouble! And if there was no conflict... there would be no story, would there? ;) Thank you so much for reviewing! Yours truly, Amelia Bedelia
Summary: Lily Evans has a secret admirer, but there's no way in hell he'll come any closer with James Potter hanging around. Finally, he convinces her to meet him in Hogsmeade, but Lily still isn't too sure of his character...
This was really good! I loved it. It was very realistic and I could actually see something like that happening with Lily and James. I love the whole idea of James proving himself to Lily secretly. It was really great!
Author's Response: Thank you! I really sweated that whole proposal, because the person I wrote fro once said she hated the wuick get-together of Lily/James, so I was really worried. Thanks for quenching my fears!
Summary: For it was a jolly little Winter's night when Luna first spoke of her crazy plan to save the Ministry from dark magic and gum disease - and thus she pledged to wage a war again the Rotfang Conspiracy.
Of course, a slightly hung over Trelawney didn't anticipate being made Luna's right hand woman, but as she clutches her toothpaste tube, she hopes to what ever gods there are that she wore clean underwear that day...
Written for VV for the Turnip Story swap and full of crack!y goodness.
Yay! It's up! *grins*
This is a great story. It's very funny and a great idea!
Thanks for letting me Beta it *hugs*. You should definitely write more humor (or humour, I should say).
Author's Response: Yes, humoUr! hee, you did a great job (or so I though) I shall maim anyone who says otherwise *grins* Or at the very least poke them :D
Summary: Read the note that launched a thousand ships.....or maybe just the romance between Lily and James...
I've very happy to see this on the site. It's really great. I love it. You could even turn it into a one-shot where James writes this for Lily... Just a thought. Great job!
Author's Response: Thank you! It\'s exciting that people seem to like my poem, since I\'m no professional poet or anything! (even though you did beta it---thanks by the way!) Good idea about the one-shot.....*taps head*
Summary: PRE-DH Ron and Hermione are getting married...and life chose just that perfect moment to shake them with a shocking discovery...
But love prevails, especially love as strong as Ron and Hermione's. Love unconditional and trusting, no matter the circumstances, makes everything just perfect.
Oh wow. That was really great. I loved the twist! The Healer turning out to be Krum's stepsister who wanted him... what a great idea! I really enjoyed this, it was a very well written story along with the perfect amount of fluff. Really great job :)
Author's Response: thank you, keri! i love the twist, too. it just came to me while i was finishing up the story...somehow my subconscious wouldn\'t let ron and hermione have a not-so-happy ending. :)
i\'ve read your stories, too, and you made my heart catch with The Greatest Compliment^_^ thank you again!
Summary: The first war with Voldemort is at it's worst, and everything is going wrong for Lily Potter. Her sister is blaming her for their parents' deaths. Her friends are dead or in danger. Nine out of ten nights, she doesn't even know where James is, if he's even alive. She can't confide in anyone. She is just about ready to give up, when suddenly she is handed new hope -- in the most unexpected way. Originally written for the New Year's Myth and Magic challenge. *one-shot*
I had read this fic a while back, when it was first posted, and I didn't leave a comment then. But, I was sitting here doing my history homework and remembered this story. I really enjoyed reading it and I liked the way you portrayed all of the characters.
I also like how you incorporated Lily's want to drive, to just speed off and forget. A lot of people portray Lily and James as perfect, but it was a difficult time and things were not perfect. There was a war raging and I think you really captured it well.
I also think you did a great job of tying the goddess into the story. I liked her a lot and thought it was a good choice.
Overall, great job. I hope you do well in the challenge!
Author's Response: Thank you very much, I really appreciate you coming back to give me some feedback. It does seem a lot of fics don\'t put any doubt in Lily and James during the war, so it was something I really attempted to incorporate into my fic. I\'m especially glad you like the goddess I chose and how she worked into the story, it makes my day to hear - or read, whatever!
Summary: It was to be the perfect day for Hermione Granger. It was the day she had awaited since childhood, the days she would remember for the rest of her life, the day that would change and brighten her world. It was her wedding day, to Ron Weasley, the man of her dreams.
But things take a turn for the worst as disaster strikes and everything perfect about this day is destroyed.
Written by Sarakime of Slytherin for the Dreams prompt from the New Year Challenge.
Yayy. I'm glad this got accepted! (I just saw it!)
This is a great fic and I loved Beta'ing it.
I must say, I'm glad it was just a dream. I would hate for something like that to happen to Hermione.
Good luck in the challenge!
Author's Response: Yay! Thank you Keri! :D
Summary: This one-shot was originally written for a Hufflepuff House Valentine's Day Challenge. Specifically, it was written for the “Surprise Date” prompt, in which two canon characters had to end up together because their friends/dates left without them. I picked the pairing I did intentionally because it goes against the popular grain just a bit. To me, you can’t get much more of a surprise date than this one.
As always, I want to thank joybelle423 for beta-reading. She does a truly outstanding job!
Wow! I loved this! I am a closet Lily/Severus shipper. Your characterization of Severus was perfect! He was icy and in denial, but at the same time, you could see the affect Lily had on him.And I loved Lily. She was just as I pictured her, confident and bright. I bet James is regretting standing her up.
What year were they in?
Great job! :D
Author's Response: Thank you for the review, KASK. I appreciate it. To tell you the truth, I hadn\'t really thought about what year they were in. This story was originally a quick response to a challenge we had in Hufflepuff House. *shrugs*. The only thing I really concentrated on was making sure Snape stayed as much in character as possible. I\'m glad you thought I did well with that. Thanks again.
Summary: The one thing that he knew what hurt him the most is the one thing he did. Watching her from afar was the only way he knew to feel close to her.
A Severus/Lily fic.
There aren't many Lily/Severus fics out there, so I was very excited to read this one! I'm a guilty pleasure Lily/Severus shipper.
It was very good! I liked how you portrayed Lily and James' relationship. It was perfect, they were laughing and joking in the sunshine, while Severus was in the shaded corner, an onlooker. It was a nice contrast.
The denial on Severus' part is also very well written. It was very believable. Of course he wouldn't want to love a Muggle-born, being the way he is. You didn't make Snape OOC, which is also good. He was stubborn and proud, the way he has always been.
Very good job! I loved it. :)
Author's Response: Aww, thank you so much. Your review just made my day. :)
Summary: The Gryffindor and Slytherin Quidditch teams are trapped in the locker room due to a sudden hail storm, and they both want the pitch when the rain lets up. What do they do to determine who gets it? Play Truth or Dare, of course!
Written for FenrirG for the Ravenclaw Spring Exchange 2007.
Haha, Abigail. I loved it! My favorite part had to be the Chris-Draco dare kiss. It was a good way to finish it up. I also thought it was cute how you managed to put a little fluff in (through Angelina/Fred etc). It was cute! Good job!
Author's Response: Thanks, Keri! I know, I had to figure out some way for the Slytherins to lose the game, and I thought a slashy kiss would be one of the only things Draco wouldn\'t do! And hee, I love the fluff parts too. Thanks for leaving a review! *hugs*
