Alone by BeautyInTheBreakdown
Rated: Professors [Reviews - 184]

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.

Whoa, amazing twist with Addie's mystery guy. Still loving Addie, I must say :-)

Very dark, LOVE how you build up the tension!

Author's Response: I beleive that after four reviews, a simple \'thank you\' is a sufficient Author\'s reply. :D

MAN I LOVE IT! Just keeps getting better and better :-)

I'm actually kinda hoping it turns out as a Remus/Nell romance, I don't know why lol. I guess I'm just an obsessive shipper: I must have a ship for every story, even if it's not a romance.

Again, great, but did you notice you changed Nell's last name? Or at least I think you did. In an earlier chapter it was Thomas, and in this chapter it's Taylor.

Author's Response: Zut! Maybe I did change her last name... I\'ll have to go and fix that... thanks for letting me know! *hugs*

Your writing is so eloquent, so beautiful...it flows so nicely...ah! Bliss. :-)

*runs off to read next chappie*

Don't worry, I'll leave a more concrit review next chapter!



Author's Response: Thankee!

Oh nice. Very lovely. Well not lovely, what happened to Nell is awful, but you know what I mean :-)
My only complaint is that you could showed a bit more emotion from Nell. True, you did have some dialogue that expressed her feelings, but what's really going on inside her head?

What I liked: I really thought you did a great job capturing how vile the boy was.

Great job!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I either show a lot of emotion or not enough. With me, there\'s no happy medium. I have to work on showing more emotion in the second chapter. I have it written, but my sources tell me it\'s lacking *goes to fix* Thanks for the review!!

The emotions in the story...its so touching. Again, your writing style is lovely. The only problem I have is with that friend of Nell's...well, first I thought it all moved a bit too quickly after Nell told Addie what happened, Addie moved on too quickly and ignored Nell for Sirius.

And Addie seems like a good friend at times, and a bad friend at others...kind of an odd complaint, but...

Still love it,

Danielle

Author's Response: Addie is like a friend I have. She\'s one of my best, yet sometimes a bit clueless and all that Jazz. I guess maybe she seems a bit unrealistic, but I\'ve based her off a real person, so I guess I did the best I could. In any case... I\'m glad you like my story. Thanks for the review!

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 : )

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!

Author's Response: You should be, you brilliant beta!

 

Summary: Past Featured StoryWhat 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!

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 [Reviews - 88]

Summary: Past Featured StoryHarry 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!
-Danielle

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 :)

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 :)
