Summary: Patrick Thatcher’s older brother teases him, his mother worries about him, and his father defends him. His family sounds very much like any other, but somehow Patrick’s is far from average. In Patrick’s world, adults disappear into thin air, owls deliver mail, and the most popular sport in the country is played on broomsticks. Not to mention that every member of his family is, and always has been, a wizard. When your grandfather is a famous American veteran, being a Thatcher isn’t the easiest life to live. When his acceptance letter to the most prestigious American school of magic arrives addressed to another student, Patrick’s position in his former world begins to take a tumble—right along with the newly elected President of Magic’s approval ratings. With the Wizarding world’s eyes shifting toward a new wizard, can Patrick figure out just why his first year is off to a rocky start? Inspired by J.K. Rowling’s wondrous Harry Potter Series, Patrick Thatcher’s adventures of wizardry in the United States is a tale all its own while still respecting its English origins. Readers are sure to find that the magic across the pond is just as unforgettable.

Fading Into Grey by PuckerUpRemus
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 170]


Do you think it’s easy to run from your family?

When Sirius Black is ten years old, everything in his life is black and white. He is a wizard. He is the heir to his most noble house. He is eager to please and willing to be everything his parents have ever dreamt for him.

Then, at Hogwarts with the ability to explore the world differently he starts to question what he has been taught his whole life and finds that even though he is a brilliant wizard and studies and most things come easy to him there is still so much he needs to learn about life outside of Grimmauld Place.

Follow along with me as Sirius Black’s world starts Fading Into Grey.

I love all the post between the two brothers! It's so real and well-written. Your characterisations are beautiful and the story flows so well I hardly realise how fast I'm reading through it.


Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much for the wonderful compliments! I’m so happy you enjoy it. I’ve always wondered why Sirius was the way he was and this story is all of my ideas and theories compiled into one. It’s nice to know it’s not just some jumbled up mess!!! I also love your username! Thanks for reading!!!

Huzzah! I was so excited to se an update at last! This chapter was wonderful, as usual. I like the introduction of Godric and the originality of the plot in all of this. So, does Salazar see Rowena before she gets back to the camp?

I knew I had read this before! Very poignant, sad, informative. Lovely job.

Author's Response: Thank you, again!

This was an original take on a post-HP fic. I like the sense of urgency to it, even though she is telling a story that must be painful, she pushes on because she's got to. It's emotional because you know this is the only way to keep the past alive, and for her that must be very important. I like the style and the atmosphere, and the character was nicely rounded. Good job.

Author's Response: Oh, thank you! *loves nice reviews*

The Invisible Girl by solemnlyswear_x
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 5]

Summary: You think about how many secrets you know, and how many things people say when they think no one’s there. It almost pays to be invisible.


Sixth-year Lisa Turpin has felt alone since she first arrived at Hogwarts. When life becomes almost too much to bear for Lisa, she wonders why things turned out this way.

Wow! That's all I can say. Amazing work with the characterisation of a character I can honestly say that I forgot existed. This is how every single teenager feels at some point, and it was portrayed so painfully and so realistically. I really love this, especially the second person tense and the way Lisa sort of mocks herself, because everyone does that. And Theodore. He's my fav, so I loved the way you brought him into the story.

Très magnifique!

Author's Response: Hah, I love Theodore too. I\'m really glad you liked it. Thanks for reviewing! :D
