Summary: What if, in the 1300s, Hogwarts was a kingdom?
Follow the story of the young Prince of Hogwarts, a fair maiden, and one, not-so-orthodox fairy godmother. (AU)
Very nice! I like the plotline. However, make sure you look over what you write before you submit it, I found quite a few typos. The storyline's excellent, though. Keep up the good work!
Through the years, Dumbledore notices a reoccuring pattern taking place at his school. One-shot.
This is probably my favorite story on the whole site. I've read it more times than I can count. Brilliant! I'd say you're my favorite fanfic author.
Summary: Oh, Harry. How different his life could have been. My own life, too. But Voldemort chose me, so I must carry the burden; not Harry. I only wonder how much it would change him, if he happened to be me. The one with the wizarding world counting on them. The one with the bad past. That's not Harry Potter, but me, Neville Longbottom.
Neville reflects on what has come to be, and what could have been.

Very well written. Interesting to see things from Neville's perspective had he been "The Chosen One."
Summary: This is my version of how Lily tells James she's pregnant. Filled with fluff and originality.
This is one of my favorite Lily/James stories! Nice idea for the announcement.
Summary: While walking by the lake Harry discovers an ordinary bottle floating in the water with something extraordinary inside it; a letter from an unnamed Hogwart's student that will change Harry's life. The magic of the bottle makes it so only those with true love in their hearts can open it. As always, please leave a review
The First Letter, the Lily/James prequel is now on the site.
This is one of my favorite stories. Let me know when you finish the Lili/James version!
Summary: Post Hogwarts fic about two friends reunited after eight years apart. In this chapter, Harry finds out that he still loves Ginny, despite his new girlfriend.
Fantastic! One thing: Ginny has brown eyes, not blue eyes. Great otherwise.
Summary: Eleven-year-old James meets Lily in Diagon Ally, about a week before school starts. Snippets of James's feeble attempts to make Lily come to her senses, from first year to seventh. Nice and fluffy one shot. James's POV.
This is a very sweet story. I like the whistle idea a lot!
Author's Response: Thank you. I\'m glad you liked it!
Summary: One night Lily Evans has a run in with James Potter. Well, you can imagine the rest of it.
Author's Response: thanks. <3
Summary: Dave Jensen thought Harry Potter was just a fun story - that is, until he found out that his best friend was a witch. Join Dave as he learns her true identity and helps her to stop running from her past.
This is a semi-fluffy, and really quite silly (hey, that rhymed!) one-shot.
This is a really original idea for a story, and you did a really good job with it. Keep writing!
Author's Response: Thanks! I have two chaptered stories on this site, and I update them as often as the Mods will allow. I\'m glad you liked the story!
Summary: Lily Evans always had felt a strong wave loathing toward James Potter whenever she saw his face. However, one night when Lily is walking along the great halls of Hogwarts, she stumbles upon James doing a wonderful deed for a small first year girl, causing Lily to look at him in a whole different light. What will happen in the end? Read and find out.
Great story! Nice to see Lily not flinging textbooks at James' head for once.
Summary: Ginny's sitting alone outside the Burrow one night, wishing she could be almost anywhere else. A conversation with her brother changes her perspective, and gives him a lot to think about too.
Wow, that was brilliant! The plot was really good! It's nice to see a fanfic about a brother and sister, something I don't find often on this website (or any other)
Author's Response: I was really keen to look at the relationship between Ron and Ginny, because I think it\'s really quite a sweet relationship (Ron\'s so protective of her!). Thanks for the review.
Summary: This is a Marauder fic told from Lily's POV. Join Lily through her first year at Hogwarts, as she blossoms from a nervous Muggle-born to a brave, strong-willed young woman.

CHAPTER 22 IS UP!!!
NOTE: This story is now Book 7 disregarded because of the Snape thing--throughout my story Lily and Snape have not been friends and it isn't going to start now.
I love this story. You have an excellent writing style. I have a couple of pieces of constructive criticism: Firstly, are you sure you want James and Sirius to be so cruel? I don't know, maybe that's what you intended all along, but they seem a little too unkind to me. Second: when you describe Lily's face, you say the curls frame her creamy face nicely. Don't forget that she has green skin at the moment. One last typo: at the beginning of the chapter, you say that Lily goes back to the Potter manor. Did you mean Parker? Other than those three things, your story was perfect. I love the way you pulled off Lily's frustration. All your characters are very well developed. Keep up the good work, and post another chapter soon!
Author's Response: i already have chapter 15 written, so it should be up soon. thanks!
Summary: It's James and Lily's last night at Hogwarts and James doesn't want their relationship to end after they leave school. This is just a short fic looking at their encounter in the Astronomy Tower.
This is reposted because I was stupid and accidentally deleted it.
Very sweet! I liked this story a lot.
Author's Response: Thanks, I\'m glad you liked it! :)
Summary: "The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches..."
The war is over, and families are still torn apart, still mourning, still grieving. But what if the prophecy hadn't applied to Harry Potter or Neville Longbottom? What if the future of the wizarding world rests in the hands of a small boy with flaming red hair and green eyes like his daddy? Does he hold the key to a bright future? This boy is all Ginny Weasley has left to remind her of his father...her husband.
One question for you. Ginny admits that she thrice defied Voldemort in this story. However, the prophecy says that the Chosen One's parents thrice defied Voldemort, and Harry certainly did that more than three times. So with that logic in mind, how exactly does it follow through that Jacob be the Chosen One? I know this is an AU story, so anything works. I'm just being nitpicky. It was very well written, though!
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! Yes, I had that same thought cross my mind, and I didn\'t know how to get around it. So, I pondered on it for a while and came up with this: Ginny and Harry didn\'t defy Voldemort together three times. They did once in their second year, and then I pictured them defying him twice more together before my story took place. A bit confusing, especially since I didn\'t mention any of this in my one-shot, but that\'s how it worked. =]
Summary: Now that James is treating Lily a little more seriously, he must consult his friends on how to take his next step.
Sequel to "A Change of View."
Very well written. I like Peter's comment at the end.
Author's Response: Thanks! I felt that comment made most sense, and therefore should be last. Also, Peter needed to say it so he could play a big role in this story. I hate the stories in which Peter\'s always off on \"Death Eater meetings.\"
Summary: Severus pauses in his eternal grading to ponder a student who could be getting better marks.
Well written! What a clever idea for a story! I really like it.
Author's Response: Thank you! I have to admit this one came on after a couple of months of modding the queue and a few years of watching my spouse grade student papers. It was a natural fit.
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.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review!
Summary: What if everyone was quite mistaken, and Lily was not Harry's mother?
Wow! This is a very original idea. Please write a sequel!
Summary: “Thanks a million, umm… sorry I don’t know your name,” she said.
“It’s okay, because I don’t know yours either,” the boy said half-laughing, as Lily giggled.
James has done the one thing Lily was afraid of: James breaking her heart. Lily is now trying to convince herself that she doesn’t need James, but when her attempts fail, she decides to give him one last chance. Contains a notebook, a white lily, and some poems that you will never forget
This is an awfully sweet story. I love your last line!
Summary: Fifteen-year-old Harry Potter wakes up in his cupboard under the stairs at number four, Privet Drive with no memory of the past five years of his life. What happened to his memory? What do his strange dreams mean? And most importantly, how will he survive in a school for incurably criminal boys?
This is primarily a mystery, with a bit of shippiness thrown in here and there. Of course, if I told you WHO is involved in the shippiness, that would ruin part of the mystery, wouldn’t it?
This story takes place immediately after OotP (and thus disregards HBP).
Wow! Great chapter. I liked the part about Harry's indignation at Dumbledore regarding the upleasant experience of apparition. Update again soon!
Author's Response: Thanks; I really do try to include little tidbits like that to make things more interesting.
