Also, almost all of my fics were written pre-DH so please check the date...I swear that I wasn't just ignoring canon :)

Alone by BeautyInTheBreakdown

Rated: Professors •
Summary: How could one night change a life so drastically? Something as simple as choosing to take a walk could ruin a life forever.

Nell is a fifth year at Hogwarts, but she's not like the rest. She's been through more than most could even dream up.
Reviewer: Simply Being Signed
Date: 09/01/06 Title: Chapter 1: The Wind's Whisper

By the way, from the summary, this kind of sounds like a good book I read, called Speak.

Author's Response: I\'ve never read that, but I\'ve heard of it.

Reviewer: Simply Being Signed
Date: 09/02/06 Title: Chapter 1: The Wind's Whisper

By the way, I would read Speak if I were you. I bet you could get inspiration for your story from it, and it's really good.

Author's Response: I will if I get the chance : )

Someone Help Me by BeautyInTheBreakdown

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Thsi is a poem to go along with my story, Alone. It is written through the eyes of someone watching Nell, a bystander.
Reviewer: Simply Being Signed
Date: 09/13/06 Title: Chapter 1: Mirrored Pain

This is the first bit of poetry I've read from you, and I have to say: Nice!!! Love it so much! Almost as much as the actual fic...scratch that, AS much as the actual fic. Your word choice is wonderful, and I love the rhythm to it. My only critique is that a few lines don't seem to quite pertain to what the narrator is saying...ah well, still really brilliant.

Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked it. And the thought of it being AS good as the story means one of two things... a crappy story or a good poem... I\'ll take the second choice. :D

Read DracoGurlForever's review and would like to add that Avalon eats meets in front on the couch a lot. I guess I should have suggested you put that Georgia! Sorry!

The Dark Lord's Blog by Schmerg_The_Impaler

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • Past Featured Story
Summary: What does Lord Voldemort do in his spare time? Well, that's an excellent question. Who would have known that the Dark Lord has a blog? (He also has a loyal following of readers, most of whom are Death Eaters and who post their comments.) Voldemort dispenses advice on everything from murder methods to germ protection to Power Rangers to shoes, and gives an account of the life of an evil overlord. But is he posting too much personal information online? And will Harry read it and find out more about the Dark Lord than Voldemort ever intended? Read and see.

WARNING: Extremely OOC behaviour from almost all.

RUNNER-UP in the 2007 Quicksilver Quills Awards for Best Humour fic! Also nominated like 21 times, because apparently my readers are as insane as I am!

Date: 11/25/06 Title: Chapter 4: Chapter 4: Fan Mail

I don't believe I've left a review for this before, hmm...sorry about that. Anyway, I just love it, highly entertaining! Very clever too!

By the way, I caught that line about the wine--its from The Princess Bride, isn't it?

Author's Response: Thanks so much! Yep, the line\'s from the Princess Bride. I love that movie!

A Destiny in Time by Gmariam

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • Past Featured Story
Summary: Harry Potter has fulfilled his destiny, and survived his final confrontation with Voldemort; the Dark Lord has been vanquished, but at a terrible price. Dozens are dead, including some of those closest to Harry, and he blames only himself for failing them. Desperate, he returns to Hogwarts hoping to change what has happened and save those he loves. In doing so he unknowingly saves himself, but the consequences require great sacrifice.

This short story is now complete. It begins on the battlefield just after Harry’s duel with Voldemort, and follows Harry as he tries desperately to right the mistakes of the past, only to rewrite his own future.

An intriguing beginning! I love time-travel fics because I think the ability to explore so many different possibilities is fascinating. I'm excited to see the full details of the battle and how it all ended. I love your clear, concise style by the way. It's not frilly, if you know what I mean :-) It actually reminds me of the books!

Author's Response: HI Danielle! I'm so glad you came to read this story! I know it's AU now but it's still one of those stories that is close to my heart so I'll be interested to hear what you think of the rest of it. I'm glad you enjoyed the beginning. I think time travel is pretty fascinating as well, but I will tell you think story was TOUGH to write and keep straight. I had to write it to the end to make sure it fit with the beginning before I started posting. Thanks for the review!! ~Gina :)

Date: 01/09/11 Title: Chapter 2: Chapter Two: Found

Again, this is very captivating. Exited to see where it goes next!

Author's Response: Thanks! I hope you continue to enjoy it! Thanks for another review, it makes me so happy to know someone is reading this story after so long! ~Gina :)

Reviewer: Simply Being Signed
Date: 01/09/11 Title: Chapter 3: Chapter Three: Fight

Great chapter. I love the way you write action--very simply, but it still packs an emotional punch.

Author's Response: Thank you! This action was tough because of the two timelines. I clearly remember how difficult it was, lol. I'm so glad you are enjoying it and hope you like the rest! Thanks for reading, I really appreciate the reviews! ~Gina :)

Arthur Weasley and the CP Layer by ChrissyOfGryffindor

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: A strange object arrives at the Misuse of Muggle Artifacts office. What is it, where did it come from, and how do they get the bloody thing to stop making noise?

The Ballad of Lucius Malfoy: An Unappealing Appeal by Schmerg_The_Impaler

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Lucius Malfoy's appealing to the Wizengamot after being caught in the Department of Mysteries, trying to convince them that he's not evil.

Quite silly, really.
Reviewer: Simply Being Signed
Date: 11/25/06 Title: Chapter 1: Lucius's Excuses-es

Oh! Adorable! Completely and utterly adorable! lol, I'm reading your strange reviews in the Odd Reviews thread on the forum, so now I'm definately going to make sure I put something concrit in here :-)

First of all, I loved the rhyme and the rhythm! It sounds like a wonderful, silly song!

My only two critiques:

Author's Response: Hee, thanks. I guess you\'ll continue with your critiques in the next review, right?

Reviewer: Simply Being Signed
Date: 11/25/06 Title: Chapter 1: Lucius's Excuses-es

ACK! I don't know what happened! Anyway, my review continued...

My two critiques:

I’m not the type who clubs
The innocent to death and then

I think the way you broke this bit into two sounds a bit strange here...

Instead of bragging in pubs

Being the self-proclaimed Queen of Nitpicking that I am, it bugs me a bit how just a few lines before you used "bragging in pubs".

And because I always like to end reviews on a good note...

I really loved it, and its going on my favorites!


PS: But I do have to agree, how could anyone think less candy is more fun?! Which is a bit of an odd coincidence really, seeing as how a friend of mine has said that to me before...but I don't think she would leave a review like that! Or would she? Oh no...*goes off to berate friend for leaving review with no concrit*

Author's Response: Yeah, I was having trouble figuring out how to word that. Basically, I wanted him to say, \"Hey, I don\'t go around killing defenceless people and then later go to the pub and brag about it. No, I go around killing defenceless people and writing heartfelt poetry about it!\" That\'s good advice, though. As for the bit about candy... I had to include that because just that morning, my dad was talking about the same thing!

The Six by helgaandgodric

Rated: 6th-7th Years •
Summary: What are six best friends to do? Enjoy their seventh year, if possible! Join Air, Layla, May, Sean, Jack, and Theo, Ravenclaws in Ginny's year, as they fall in and out of love, survive and accident or two, and stick together, for better or for worse, in sickness and in health.

This was originally prompted by a challenge from awhile ago that I couldn't participate in. There will be two chapters of Autobiography, four (notice the new number!) of Conflict, six of Great Love, and one of Resolution.

New rating as a precautionary for later chapters, and warnings might pop up along the way. Also, it has been edited to comply with DH, so you might want to reread some chapters. It is not necessary, though.
