Summary: Hermione wants to learn Occlumency, but Snape isn't known for doing favors out of sheer kindness. Both may learn something unexpected before it's all over...
This is a Book Five canon fic, hopefully fun and poignant. Enjoy.
Awww...they're so cute, in a really unbalanced sort of way. :D
Author's Response: Exactly. Moderation is for chickens.
Well, at least Hermione knows what she wants.
Very entertaining chapters. Severus' last female encounter left me with chills and it wasn't even described. Very well done.
Author's Response: Strong believer in the \"less is more\" principle. Thanks!

"Oh wonderful, Snape thought to himself looking at both James and Harry. There's two of them." I laughed when I read this. Poor Sevy. He's never had to deal with two of them at once before.
This was really great! I'm really enjoying it. Well done!
This is a really neat idea. I doubt Severus is the only character who thinks erasing his life would help the overall good of humanity.
This is really interesting, and I am looking forward to seeing what the magical world would be like without Severus Snape.
Summary: Who was Lucius Malfoy's first love? Someone who stole his heart caused him more trouble than ever he expected and introduced him to romance in winter.
This story has been nominated in the hurt/comfort category in owl.tauri.org's awards for 2006 fanfics. It has also recieved a Runner-Up award for Best Romance in the Mod Quicksilver Quills.
Well, this could certainly explain some of the hostility between Lucius and Arthur. This is a different take on Lucius and Molly, I have never read anything quiet like it.
Author's Response: You betcha it could! Thanks for the review -- again! I don\'t think I\'ve seen anything quite like it either, so had to try it myself once the bunny came along.
Oh poor Lucius! I didn't like Molly to start with, and you're giving me whole new reasons to dislike her. That was horrible! The baby could have been his. What right did she have to decide it was Arthur's and give him no say? Sorry, for the little rant, but as you can see, this chapter got to me. Very well done!
Author's Response: Well, Arthur is of age, and Arthur will not do anything drastic if the child doesn\'t particularly look like him, and Molly is being both practical and sensible. She can\'t go by love, because she loves both. So -- she\'s going for the guaranteed good father of the two. At the moment, Lucius is a minor and has little say in any decisions of this sort, and he is, after all, Lucius. Thanks for the review!
Didn't see that coming. Of course, I haven't read Blue Eyes Schemeing.
Anyway, this was really funny. I loved the fudge. All your characters were very cute in this context. Very well done!
Author's Response: I\'ve always wondered what goes on in the Slytherin Common Room when nobody else is looking. A lot of taunting and alpha-male-ing seemed appropriate. Thanks for the review!
Awww...I loved your ending. I can't believe she went to see him.
But I was surprised that Bill turned out to be his son. I thought he had the legendary Weasley red hair. Anyway, I bet the reading of Lucius' will would make for another very interesting tale. ;)
Author's Response: Well, it might be the Prewitt red hair. Or Lucius might be deluding himself and Molly doesn\'t feel up to arguing. Or... But yes, that will would indeed make an interesting tale! Thanks for reviewing!
Nice! Awkward Lucius is adorable! And I love that Molly nicknamed him Lucifer. This is very amusing. Well done, as always.
Author's Response: I\'ll keep writing it: being sixteen is horribly awkward no matter who you are. Even Lucius needed practice before he could talk anyone into anything, though Molly is having her own difficulties with being eighteen and flattered. *Visualizes what Lucius would have to say about being \'adorable\' and laughs* Thanks for reviewing!
Wow! When I'm reading this I forget that these people are actually Lucius and Molly! You write their young versions very different from the adults we meet later on. But it's all very very interesting!
Author's Response: Hmm. I\'m trying to decide if that\'s bad or good -- they may have changed a lot, or they may be OOC. *think, think* Hopefully you still find them vaguely plausible as younger versions of tough-but-kind Molly and manipulative Lucius. Thanks for reviewing!
Summary: This is a very short, one-shot story about a man who visits Sirius' memorial stone on a cool, October night. Once there, he thinks back and reflects upon the events of the past year and a half since Sirius' death.
Awww...poor Remus. I always wondered if Sirius even had a cemetery plot. There is never one mentioned in the books. It actually kind of annoyed me. It was like he died, and because there was no body to bury, he had no memorial. If he did have a grave site it seems like something Harry would know about.
Anyway, very good story. It really makes you feel for poor Remus. I also liked that he visited the grave right before his transformation. That is probably when he misses all of his old friends the most because they used to help him get through his transformations. So yeah, really well done!
Author's Response: Yay, thanks so much! Yeah, I was always wondering that too... would he have a memorial? I say he should. Hence the story. I\'m so happy you liked it.
Summary: The House of Black may look beautifully decorated and filled with life through the eyes of someone who had never lived there, but when two boys have spent their entire childhood suffering the pain their family gave them, this same house looks only melancholy and depressing.
Awww...this was really great! I loved the way you wrote the brothers, especially Sirius. I also liked the end, where you said that he would never be trapped inside that house again, because we know that he will be. Very well done!
Author's Response: You know, I didn\'t even think about the fact that he will be again. Haha. But, thanks!
Summary: Snape's first act after Voldemort vanishes for the first time.
Hmmm...I liked it. What exactly happened to Snape's memory, though? I thought it was just traumatic shock or something, but I was wondering if I was right.
I loved Harry. It was so cute how he asked Snape for everyone he was used to. And “Sea-wuz?” was great! I did notice a few grammatical errors and a couple of missing words, but overall, very well done.
Oh yeah, what happened with Hagrid? He picked Harry up at Godrics Hollow, but you had Severus Apparate Harry to Hogwarts.
Anyway, I enjoyed reading this. So good job!
Author's Response: You are correct, he was momentarily \"shell-shocked\". :) Yay! Someone recognised it!
Oi. Errors? What/where? I try ot get rid of those... O_o
As I\'ve said to other reviewers, there\'s the \"missing 24 hours\" to contend with for Harry, and I thinK Snape was at Godric\'s Hollow (and NOT with the Dark Lord) the night the Potters were killed, so I postulate that Snape is the one that got Harry \"out of the elements\", so to speak. I have an essay devoted to this on the forums if you\'d like to read it - I use the same name on the forums as I do for my author name, so if you PM me, I can point you to it. :)
Summary: She had never known what to say to her sister. But now that she is ready, it is too late.
Andromeda one shot.
Wow! This was really good. Not at all the way I write Bella and Andromeda, much more cannon though. I really felt for Andromeda. It must have been hard for her to lose her family, and then to have to face the death of a sister she never really knew. Very well done!
Author's Response: First review! Yay! Both Bella and Andromeda are up to much interpretation, so I think that there are many ways that they can be written. I usually write them differently, too! Anyway, thank you for the very sweet review!
Summary: Marauders' era, HBP spoilers. James Potter discovers Severus Snape's hexes - and uses them against him.
I enjoyed this, and I think James and Sirius would be that mean. Not that Severus wouldn't be just as mean back when he gets the opportunity. I don't think any of them were particularly nice when they went to school.
Anyway, good story. :D
Summary: "Six moments in time, they are all different but they all remind me of one man."
Told from Hermione's point of view, 6, 100 word peices that all lead back to Severus Snape. Please Read and Review.
Eerie. I liked it though. It was very cute that you gave Severus' son his looks, excluding that terrible nose. Hehe. Anyway, good job!
Author's Response: Thanx, well i dont think that Severus would want his own children inheritaing his nose. Ta, Ecca
Summary: Have you ever wondered what would have looked like Harry's escape from the Dursleys in Prisoner of Azkaban from Sirius Black's point of view? Watch the scene while our favorite Animagus tries to get a glimpse of his godson before heading for his long journey.
This was written for the In-House July Challenge in my house, Slytherin. Enjoy!
It's nice to see a different POV for that night. This was good, Viv. Sorry, for not writing anything too long but it's really late. But yeah, good job!
Author's Response: Thanks a lot! I\'m glad you liked it!
Summary: It was well known that the last two carriages of the Hogwarts Express were used exclusively by the Slytherins. In a House ruled by politics and power, where you sat in those carriages made all the difference. This is a Marauder-era story, focusing on Slytherin House.
Pairings: Lucius/Narcissa, Bellatrix/Rodolphus, Andromeda/?
Other main characters: Severus Snape, Rabastan LeStrange and Regulus Black
Gen/humour/bit of romance (Complete)
This was really interesting. I loved how you set up the in-house politics. And of course, Sevy was going to win. He's always been the smart one. :D Anyway, I really enjoyed this. You did a great job with it.
Author's Response: Hi, Sly Severus. Well, I\'m glad you approved. It was a fun story to write. It\'s canon that Severus is magically gifted, so of course he\'s going to win, right? Thanks so much for reading and commenting. - SIW
Summary: The night Sirius Black goes through the veil, someone loses a godfather, someone loses a student, someone loses a member of the Order and someone loses a best friend.
‘I ask you to raise your glasses to this great wizard, who truly was a gem,’ I raised my glass of blood red wine and said, ‘this last toast to Sirius Black,’ and immediately a low collective whisper of ‘to Sirius Black’ filled the kitchen. And I added silently, ‘May he rest in peace.’

Poor Sirius! I don't think he'll go to hell. I absolutly loved him. Anyway, this was sweet. A nice send off for old Padfoot.
Author's Response: Personally, even I\'m praying that he doesn\'t go to hell either. I can almost see him with the angels..lol Thanks for the review!

Ooo, very dark. I loved it. Your descriptions were great. I really loved your opening. Well done.
I did notice a spelling error in this sentence: Raising his want so the tip would align with Dorian’s chest, Want should be wand. Just a little thing, but I thought you might want to know.
Anyway, really great job!
