Without You by Magical Maeve

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 4 Reviews
Summary: Ginny reflects on Harry
Reviewer: FaunaCaritas Signed
Date: 07/19/06 Title: Chapter 1: Without You

I liked you poem. I was wondering if you had time to explain the last stanza a little bit. When you say the power they have is not love you took me by surprise, which is what sets this poem apart. Without the closing lines I don't think the poem would stand out for me. Do you mind explaining a bit more about what you meant?


Voldemort's Day Off by KitKat517

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 24 Reviews
Summary: Have you ever wondered what Voldemort does when he isn't planning a new way to kill Harry?
Reviewer: FaunaCaritas Signed
Date: 07/16/06 Title: Chapter 1: Voldemort's Day Off

Nice! Made me smile. How about a longer version?

Author's Response: If you want it longer, you\'ll have to send me some more ideas for activites. I stopped when I ran out. I\'m glad you liked it!

Voldie's Only Valentine by hufflepuffgal

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 17 Reviews
Summary: Enclosed here is a printed copy of the one and ONLY valentine that You- Know-Who, yes, he HIMSELF, in all his evil glory, ever wrote. With witty rhyme and winning words it shows you the other side of this seemingly heartless man. And to make it a little more interesting I'm not going to tell you who it is written to (*evil laugh*) in the poem. You can guess in your reviews and I'll tell you if you are right. If you are the first to correctly guess the person, Iíll give you the code for an icon I made and you can post it on your bio (if you want). Good Luck! Hope you enjoy! Please review!

Reviewer: FaunaCaritas Signed
Date: 12/25/06 Title: Chapter 1: The Valentine

LOL! Is Voldie watching the sky for the Dark Mark? *chortles* Such a well done valentine! If only the pasty, red-eyed, spider-handed, bald, noseless hunk would send one to me! I think I would swoon.


Author's Response: thanks for the review. Actually, when i wrote the poem i ment for him to be watching the sky for and owl to deliver a responce. But your idea is good, too.

The Little Owl Who Believed by Bryant

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 5 Reviews
Summary: A little owl who never stops believing that he will one day be the greatest post-owl that ever lived, is dissipointed when he finds out that he is going to be shipped to Romania. However, something happens that he never expected, and he finds himself leaving the place he lived in for so long to have a new life.

Written by Bryant of Ravenclaw for the One-Shot Owl Challenge.

Date: 07/15/06 Title: Chapter 1: The Little Owl Who Believed

I loved this story. I will never think of Pig the same way again. The lovable feathery tennis ball has his own story! I'm sure he would be proud. It never ceases to amaze me what fan fic authors choose to write about. I can honestly say this is currently my favorite off-the-wall mini fic. You write well, and your style is endearing. Keep writting more stories like this please. I'd love to see a series about all the pets of our favorite characters (like Trevor, Crookshanks, Hedwig, and Ginny's pygmy puff what's-his-name.)

Anyway, good luck. Pax.

Author's Response: Wow, thank you. I\'ve been taking a break for a while, but I\'m currently working on a new fic that will be up soon, I hope. It\'s reviews like this that makes me want to write fanfiction. It always inspires me when someone leaves good reviews! Thank you, once again!

Smiles and Tears by hufflepuffgal

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 8 Reviews
Summary: This is a poem written from Ginny's perspective about how she feels on Bill and Fleur's wedding day.
Reviewer: FaunaCaritas Signed
Date: 12/25/06 Title: Chapter 1: Smiles and Tears

So good! I'm sure this is how she will feel at the wedding unless Harry musters up the gumption to eat his words. Once again, you know how to capture the feelings of completely different characters and translate them into poetry.

Quick correction, one of your lines runs "It not that I'm not delighted..."--- you're missing the 's' in 'It's'.

Keep writing, you're really good.


Author's Response: thanks for the review.

Sympathy for the Serpent by Dakkauna

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 4 Reviews
Summary: August 1, 992
Salazar Slytherin explains his reasoning and rationale behind creating the Chamber of Secrets.
Reviewer: FaunaCaritas Signed
Date: 12/26/06 Title: Chapter 1: Sympathy for the Serpent

I was not sure, when I was reading this for the first time, whether this was meant to be a real justification for Slytherin's actions or rather an example of his twisted logic-- something to the effect of 'an evil deed is justified by a righteous end.' Even after a second reading I am not sure. Ultimately I think what Salazar did was unpardonable and so I view his 'justification' as completely unsatisfactory. However, I wish to stress how much I really enjoyed this work. It makes you think hard about why someone would do something so apparently evil and depraved. Everyone has a 'good reason' for what they do, no matter how mistaken they are. While Slytherin's regret strikes me as odd (why should he regret what he thinks is right-- is it because the means are so drastic?) I thought the way he reasoned betrayed a very human character. Fictional villains are typically one-dimensional. Your Salazar was a believable one.

I'm off to see if you have written anything else. Well done in this one shot!


Author's Response: Wow. Thank you. You\'re right, I am not trying to justify Slytherin, but to give him another dimension than evil. You made me blush.

Which Way to Turn by ProfPosky

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • 10 Reviews
Summary: As a young man out of Hogwarts, Arthur Weasley tries to find a job. Will he succeed before someone else steals Molly from him? We know what happens - come see how!
Reviewer: FaunaCaritas Signed
Date: 12/21/06 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

What a happily written, lovable perspective into Arthur and Molly's romance! You made me smile. The characters were perfectly reproduced and the plot believable. I completely understand poor Molly's desperation *grin* and applaud her wonderful way of taking command of the situation. You really made the young couple's predicament come alive. I was not expecting Lucius to be have his eye on Molly, but that doesn't make it bad. Your writing style is impressive.

I'd love to see more one-shots along the same lines. Ever think about maybe giving us a glimpse of their quiet wedding or when she tells him she is expecting? I can never get enough of the beautiful, touching moments (and less of the broom-closet relationship play-by-plays.)

Happy Christmas!

The Beech Tree by KASK

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 56 Reviews
Summary: Near the lake is a beech tree. This beech tree is where two couples declare their love for one another. It holds memories of love lost, found and forgotten. Under this beech tree is where four people spend two sunkissed days, nearly twenty years apart.

This is a Lily/James & Harry/Ginny story.
Reviewer: FaunaCaritas Signed

Thank you.
I think this is one of the sweetest one-shots I have read. You write beautifully.


Author's Response: Thank you so much! I\'m really glad you liked it!

Explanation of a Dark Deed by hufflepuffgal

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 3 Reviews
Summary: This is a poem, written from Snape's point of veiw, explaining the whats and whys of what happened that ight by the tower. Why did he really do it? is he really still working for the Dark Lord? How could Dumbledore trust him?
Reviewer: FaunaCaritas Signed
Date: 12/25/06 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

I think your poem here is well done (and-- bonus points-- correct.) Super-duper. I was totally drawn into Snape's narrative. It was so delightfully... Snape-y! Bravo.

My only criticism-- the phrase 'until need be' in the third to last stanza has been used incorrectly. It needs an object. Its a pity since it fits in so perfectly.

More, more, more!


Author's Response: thanks!

We are Who we Choose to Be by LadyAlesha

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 6 Reviews
Summary: Minerva is going through a rough time. First she lost her mother, then she lost her friends. Will she risk losing her father as well in order to live the life she wants to live?
Reviewer: FaunaCaritas Signed
Date: 07/28/06 Title: Chapter 1: Making Choices

Not bad! You have me interested... who are the five students and what were they up to?
Keep updating.

Author's Response: Sorry, but this is just a one-shot, there won\'t be any other chapters. And to be completely honest, those five students don\'t even have names in my head, nor do I know what they did to poor Pringle.

The Truth About Daddy by Emily_the_Poet

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • 5 Reviews
Summary: The locked room is a place few wizards will go... Actually, where only one wizard will go as Jemina Doyle will son discover.

Written for Ravenclaw House
Reviewer: FaunaCaritas Signed
Date: 07/27/06 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Good job! I think you did a great job introducing the characters here and in drawing the reader into the mystery of the locked room. I liked how you revealed some things, but not too much-- makes for an evil cliff hanger.

Keep writing.

The Portrait Painter by coppercurls

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • 22 Reviews
Summary: It is England in the early 1800's, Bonapart is reigning in France and tensions between the two countries are running high. Phillip must face the secrets of his past while still surviving in the present. It takes the portrait of a remarkable girl to teach him that he can find trust in a world gone mad.

Winner of the June/July monthly challenge, #1: autobiography, and overall winner. By coppercurls of Hufflepuff house.
Reviewer: FaunaCaritas Signed
Date: 07/28/06 Title: Chapter 1: The Portrait Painter

Coppercurls, you are amazing! This story is hauntingly beautiful. The concept, the atmosphere, the details, and the characters are truly magnificent. I usually offer an author some cc, but I can't find anything to critique in this story. I hope I don't sound like I'm gushing, but the quality of your writing surpasses that of most fan fiction authors, and I think you deserve a place on the 'featured' list for this story.

I have read most of the authors you mentioned in this story by the way... I'm pleased to see that my theory that 'those who read great works write great works' is born out in your case.

Thank you for one of my new favorites.


P.S. -- Loved the switch from Thistledown to Thistle. Cute and creative. One of my favorite parts in the story.

Author's Response: Thanks for your appreciation. I have been on a French history kick lately, and it is nice to know that its fruits have been well recieved. I\'m glad you have read the classics; one thing western history has taught me is that they come in handy again and again. And as for Thistledown, he may look like he would blow away in a stiff breeze, but he is really all over in prickles (except for where his mistress is concerned of course). Thanks again!

Letters From a First Year by Gmariam

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 7 Reviews
Summary: This is a series of letters which Emma Wood, a first year student at Hogwarts, writes to her Grandfather over the course of the year. Follow Emma as she receives her Hogwarts letter, buys her first wand, is Sorted into her House, and meets Harry Potter, The Boy Who Lived.

This story was written for the June/July Monthly Challenge One: Autobiography by GMariam of Ravenclaw.

Reviewer: FaunaCaritas Signed
Date: 07/28/06 Title: Chapter 1: Letters From a First Year

Hello there! I think you have a really neat idea here. It is nice to see the world of Hogwarts through the letters of a student.

I would like to suggest two things. First, don't hesitate to develop Emma's character through her letters by letting us know a lot more about what she thinks and feels. There is a huge opportunity here to build up a lovable girl that your readers can identify with. Most, if not all, of your readers know about what happened to Harry his first year. I would suggest making Emma's letters do more then just relate those events. Have Emma really give a whole new perspective on Harry's life, or use your story to show 'missing moments' in his school years. Go wild with your imagination here. I LOVED what you did with Fred and George's hair color potion! Have more stuff like that; that was so awesome.

Second, have you though about showing Emma's letters to other people then just her grandfather? Her letters to her mother and cousins(?) might be a nifty thing to try your hand at...

I hope this review isn't overwhelming. I am probably offering a lot more then you need to hear.

Great work, and keep updating. This fic is ready to go places!


Author's Response: Thank you for taking the time to leave such great suggestions! It really wasn\'t overwhelming, it\'s great to know someone is reading so carefully and thoughtful enough to leave such a nice note. Hopefully I won\'t sound defensive, but I really did think about both of your concerns as I worked on this story. So here\'s a bit of insight into the deepest recesses of my mind . . . As to Emma writing to other people beside her grandfather: again, I absolutely thought about it. But for this piece I wanted to keep it consistent: I felt like jumping around from a letter to her mom, to a letter to her dad, to a letter to her cousin would be too difficult to follow. This way she is telling a more continuous story to one person. But that said, I originally envisioned this character for a series of challenges, and had her writing a different set of letters for each challenge, each centered around a different theme, each from a different year of her schooling at Hogwarts. Without giving too much away, since I may continue with this someday, Emma does not write to her grandfather exclusively through the years. But for this challenge, she did, for the reasons above. :) As for your other suggestion about developing her personality and experiences a bit more - yes, you are absolutely right. I could definetly see how as a reader that would be highly desirable. Hopefully I can do more with that if and when I continue her letters through the years. But again - for this challenge I deliberately set out to detail her thoughts about Harry. She\'s got a small crush on him, although I left a hint at the end that that could be changing. But again - should I continue working with Emma, I know a bit more of her will reveal itself, because I\'ve planned for some of it already. Can\'t tell, though. ;) So that\'s what was going through my mind as I worked on this. And like I said - should I follow Emma through her years at Hogwarts, I will definitely branch out a bit and hopefully incorporate your suggestions more. Thanks again for your wonderful note, I really appreciate it. Take care! ~Gina :)

Faithful by malko050987

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 10 Reviews
Summary: Post-OotP one-shot. Written from Hedwig's POV, as she tries to help Harry deal with Sirius' death. Harry/Ginny
Reviewer: FaunaCaritas Signed
Date: 08/06/06 Title: Chapter 1: Faithful

This is a great story. Well written, original, full of emotion. I have always loved Hedwig, she is such an enigma yet such a key player in Harry's life. You wrote her story with simplicity, which made it beautiful.
Great work, bravo.


Author's Response: Thank you for the praise :) i\'m glad you like the story :D Chris

Behind those Emerald Eyes by makinmagic323

Rated: 6th-7th Years • 2010 Reviews
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).


There have been errors when this story gets submitted for validation, so the mods have to do it manually. Therefore it does not show when it has been validated -- but it has!!

Thank you to all my reviewers!!!

Reviewer: FaunaCaritas Signed
Date: 04/23/08 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1: Gingersnap Cookies

err, alright--current reaction:everyone is OOC. I am sure your story will explain everything, but you probably should have introduced the radical changes more slowly.

I don't think McGonagall would have hired smeone out of the blue. A teacher, who will be around kids? There are safety issues to be considered.

Anyway, I'll give chapter two a try. You did a good job building up the mystery and suspense.

Author's Response: one thing i like to inform readers of is that everything in my story has a purpose, a reason for being the way it is. for example, there\'s a reason mcgonagal hiring landon the way she did. but i\'m glad you are continuing on to chapter 2. my best writing picks up in the later chapters, so enjoy!

yes... by Dragon_Spirit

Summary: The story of the wonderful Lily and James!
Reviewer: FaunaCaritas Signed
Date: 12/31/06 Title: Chapter 1: yes...

Nice piece of poetry! Bravo on you first MNFF fledgling.

One minor correction-- you do not need a comma at the end of every line, only put them where they would occur according to the normal rules of punctuation. When in doubt write poetry out in normal sentence format and correct any punctuation that looks odd or out of place... then put it back in line/stanza format.

Good job. Keep writing.


Author's Response: Thx, watch out 4 the new peice that i am submitting! Also thanks 4 the advice! it will go 2 good use, trust me! Thx, Dragon_Spirit

Reach the Open Space by Tinn Tam

Rated: 6th-7th Years • 40 Reviews
Summary: After defeating Voldemort, Harry Potter was about to become the most adulated wizard in the History of Wizardkind. But he ruined it all. And he's damn proud of it.
Reviewer: FaunaCaritas Signed
Date: 01/28/08 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Wow! Unique. I loved it. I can honestly say I thought your version of the final battle was better then JKR's (which I frankly found very disappointing.)

You have such an interesting interpretation of Harry's character. It doesn't exactly fit with the Harry in Rowling's books, but your Harry seems to be a more mature rendering of a boy who grew up in the same circumstances/world/environment. Do you know what I mean?

The one thing I have trouble understanding is Harry's reaction to Ron's death. It seems to me that some part of him would feel sorrow... just like some part of him still finds joy in something as simple as flying. However, this is only an opinion...

Thanks for posting this one shot. I enjoyed it immensely. Now I'm off to see if the next chapter of The Song of the Trees is up yet!

You Bust Slug by SavingSaturn

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 6 Reviews
Summary: Ever wondered what happened to that little boy Harry saw playing with his father's wand at the Quidditch World Cup? Well now little Kevin is eleven years old and about to start school at Hogwarts. While shopping with his mother in Diagon Alley he runs into Harry Potter and discovers that he's not so different after all.
Reviewer: FaunaCaritas Signed
Date: 12/31/06 Title: Chapter 1: You Bust Slug

Hmmm, could use work. It was a fun idea and a nice reflection on Harry (the normal guy who beat the villain, etc.) The story itself, however, came across as a sequence of events without much filler. Further the antagonism between Kevin and his mother seemed unnecessary and remained unresolved.

Enjoyed the idea... are you going to continue this story?

Jeepers Creepers! That was scary!

I loved it. Good job choosing the end-to-beggining style. I would almost suggest moving this story to the mystery category. It is not so much a 'romance' as a detective-ish kind of story.

Great work!
