At A Glance- A series of romantic vignettes pertaining to the bittersweet lives of the characters we hold so dear.
Bright Darkness- The shadows close in around me, but his eyes remain, shining through the dark to bring me back. RHr.
Erised- He looked me in the eyes bravely and said four words that turned my world upside down. “You are my desire.”
Hidden Hearts- Trouble brews when Harry and Ginny decide to take matters into their own hands on the ol' RHr romance. RHr and HG.
Holiday Hitches- Hermione Granger was never known to hate Christmas, but apparantly there is something about this Christmas that is preventing her from relaxing. And Ron Weasley intends to find out what it is. RHr
In Her Eyes- "... all suddenly became clear to Harry; it wasn’t Sirius that Tonks had fallen in love with after all..." NTRL
Moments- How many little moments does it take to pull your sister and your best friend together? Hermione and Ron team up to get Harry and Ginny a little bit closer.
No Matter What- Together forever, he promised her. RHr
Perception- Sensible is in the eye of the beholder... RHr
Perfectly Oblivious- Hermione may be intelligent, but she can be pretty stupid when it comes to love. Ron may be cute but that only goes so far. How are they supposed to understand each other's feelings if they can't even understand their own?
Quiet Desperation- Mr. Thoreau put it best once. "The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation." What of a woman...? HG
The Yearbook- It's time for the Trio to say goodbye to Hogwarts, and it's pretty difficult for Ron. So what better way to preserve his happy times by having people sign a spare bit of parchment he has handy? And thanks to Harry and Ginny, he gets Hermione.
Timeless- It was best to wish when one was unaccompanied. No one would ask you what you were doing nor would they laugh at you once they knew what you were doing. Yes, wishing was best done alone.
When Did You Fall- Ron is looking at Hermione one day, when he catches that look in her eyes and interprets its' meaning. And right now he only has one question worth asking...
Worth- A twelve year old struggles against the crushing weight of her memories. Nothing the boy said had been nice. But she was too worried if it was true. HG
Writer's Block- Harry is now in charge of writing his own stories. How will TheBoyWhoLived manage without his author?
Summary: This is a retelling of Harry's second Quidditch game from a very different point of view.
God, I just love Snape... =D
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! This little one-shot can always use the lovins. (It was my first posted story, so still has a special spot in my heart.)
Summary: Severus has never seen the appeal of repetition, particularly of things that ended badly the first time. In his life, he has kept one pet, owned one broom, and had one close friend.
Winner of Mod Quicksilver Quill for Best Novel! Thanks, all!
Rating and warnings do not apply to all chapters; I just didn't want anyone hooked and then shocked.
This was good so far. :D
Author's Response: Thanks!
I love my Snapie!!! Great chap! :D
Snape can fly! YAY! :D
Meanie Malfoy, ARGH!!!!! Poor Snapie. *sniff* :(
Hahahaha, stupid Lucius! Green... heh heh heh... :D
Lucius is a LOSER!! Haha.. Try to mess with Snape, and he messes you up, son! :D
Yay, Snape n' Lils are friends!
Aw, nice Snapie...
Uh, oh. What's wrong with Snapie?
James is such a JERK! AGHHHHH! Poor Snapie...
WoWiE, WhAt A cHaPtEr!
Author's Response: I need to go start dinner soon, so you are getting a blanket response for several reviews. Thanks for all of them! I\'m glad you\'re getting a good read out of this. And... \"Snapie???\" This is one of those times to show Severus the numbers but hide the nickname, I think. Otherwise he\'ll start muttering dark things about hip flasks and locator spells. *giggle*
Summary: The Malfoys are entertaining, and it is time for little Draco to go to bed. He, of course, can think of better things to do than sleep.
I still giggle like a silly little kid when I think of Snape telling oh so-oober cute Draco his bedtime story. What a perfect ending to yet another brilliant portrayal of dear Severus. What a conversation starter that would be at school... =D
Author's Response: And what an awkward conversation that could become for the professor... This is another story I thoroughly enjoyed writing, bunnied by Draco\'s question about the Forbidden Forest -- \"Aren\'t there werewolves in there?\" or something like that. Now, who would have gone and told him that? Thanks for the review!
Summary: Lily returns to Hogwarts at the beginning of her sixth year and discovers how inconvenient it is to be sixteen, pretty, and Muggleborn.
Oh, poor Lils. If Slughorn died in the last book I can't say I'd be sorry (hopefully the cause is choking on that blasted crystalized pineapple he's always eating.)
Author's Response: I\'ve been surprised, in these reviews, by how many people also found Slughorn just plain creepy, and how many really can relate to this. It\'s a little scary, and I wonder if Jo meant to write him that way for the older and more experienced readers or if it\'s just some sort of odd resonance for some of us.

Yes! I get TEN Points and a... what the bloody hell's and e-cookie? Loved the chapter, Trish. I promised... Mandelin I wouldn't say the three letters involving you-know-what. Oh! And guess who's NOT coming to New Year's? LB. Have a
very Harry Christmas.... and a Sirius New Year ;D
Author's Response: Hey Odette! An e-cookie is a cookie from me to you guys via internet. So go to your kitchen, grab a cookie, and pretend it came from the computer before you eat it! Ahhh, dear Mandelyn (spelling? I forgot!), what would we do without her? And LB won\'t be there? It shall be a very Siriusly Happy New Year indeed! *insert trademark evil cackle* Thanks for the review, and have a very Harry (or Ron; not picky!) Christmas! *sings* I know what you got for Chriiiiiistmaaaaas. ; ) ~Moony
NOOOO!!! Okay, done now. He has amnesia?! This better be a joke, Trisha! Not funny. I love your style, though. The dialogue is brill, and I totally agree with what you have about Remus' thoughts. I think you're better at angst than romance, you bitter woman (I still can't believe you don't think Cyranno is romantic!) But really... so hawt, Trish. No doubt.
Author's Response: Mmmm, can\'t tell you if I\'m joking or not, Christine! It shall all be answered in the next chapter (currently in queue!). Thanks for the compliments; and I\'m not bitter! I don\'t know why I write angst better... and on the Cyrano war front (one \'n\' not 2!) I will have to save my judgement for a time when we aren\'t in a crowded French class with guys talking and I can\'t hear a thing! I\'ll try again, and that will be another thing you can take credit for. Everyone, weasleybabe24 is the reason you are reviewing this story! She forced me to read Harry Potter quickly and finally get an account! Thanks, wheezybabe! ~Moony ;D
Author's Response: I admit my mistake and will now say that Cyranno does, in fact, have 2 n\'s. Thank you, French class! And a certain weasleybabe24!
OMG! So hawt! Loved the chapter. You better write more soon, or I'LL Crucio you! Dude, for real. Not joking. That was the hottest thing I've read in a while. Ta, Muh-hoony.
Author's Response: Thank you, Padfoot! Since we have Mon. and Tues. off, I\'ll probably get them one or two up then (yay!). Thank you for reviewing, now I feel all important! ~Moony
Author's Response: Okay, ignore the \"them\" in there, my fingers are apparently on a typing-strike tonight.
Yes! I get kudos! Flippin' sweet! Oh no! Don't let Harry die! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
See look! Now it looks like a HUGE long review! ;D
Author's Response: ME! KILL HARRY?! I don\'t know what you\'re talking about! I don\'t see where that came from either... but you don\'t know what will happen... unlke nuw255... maybe if you ask HIM... Dunno! You will have to wait and see! ~Moony
