Summary: The war is on and the only person with the power to stop Voldemort's second reign of terror is sulking alone in a cold, dark room. The unexpected arrival of an old school chum in Privet Drive jolts him to action, however, as Harry begins his most exciting year at Hogwarts. Year 6 will include a visit to the ancient village of Godric's Hollow; a first hand account of the 1000 year old quarrel that ripped Hogwarts apart; a Fred and George-style farewell to a certain ex-Minister of Magic; and the discovery of the Half-Blood Prince, a mysterious figure who holds the key to winning the war...
(And, as J.K. says, what's life without a little romance?)
Excellent! This truly is my favorite fan fic and this might even be my favorite chapter! Absolutely an original and brilliant plot! I also wondered why Dumbledore didn't just call Fawkes to him but maybe he was just way too excited? I can't think of any constructive criticism for this chapter. Just perfect!
Summary: Though Christmas is usually a time of love and laughter, this is not so for everyone. Painful memories can be associated with Christmas just as easily as any other day of the year, and they can be just as hard to deal with. Sometimes, healing comes in surprising, snow-covered packages.
what a very sweet and touching story! I would love to read more about Adele and Cho!
Author's Response: Thank you very much. Adele was an interesting character, and one of these days I might bring her out again for something.
Summary: Post-HBP. Voldemort attacks Harry during Potions class. What will Snape's reaction be? PG-13 for violent scenes and mild language.
Just wanted to let you know that I just discovered your story today and thought it was great! Sorry to hear that there's no sequal, but I'll keep an eye out for any other stories by you!
Author's Response: Thanks! :)

Great chapter! Very exciting now that the battle is underway! Looking forward to finding out what happen's next and who this other "fake" death eater is!
Author's Response: glad that you liked it, and the next chapter is in the works. as for the \"fake\" death eater it was really only someone coming out of the imperius curse, and starting to attack real death eaters. sorry if i didn\'t make that clear enough.
Summary: For once in her life, Hermione is faced with a problem she does not know how to solve...
So happy to see a good long update! At least Hermione has gotten thru her angst!
I love long chapters with quick updates! : ) Was that not one of the options?
More frequent updates is my preference, that way you remember the plot easier! Love the story and can't wait to see where it goes. I think you've captured the personalities of the characters perfectly!
Author's Response: Hahaha, I wish that was an option! x D I\'m glad to hear that I have captured their personalities for you, and I will try to be frequent with my updates. Thanks for reading!
I LOVE this fic!!! Absolutely the best. My theory is the owl is an animagus (maybe Draco Malfoy?). or someone else with blue eyes (Ron? or Dumbledore?).
Author's Response: can\'t be saaaayin x) thanks so much for reading!!

Glad to have you back! Hope you are feeling much better.

Dean Thomas has enrolled in the newly created early admissions programme at St Mungo's Healing College where he meets new friends and some old ones. Life seems to be going great until something happens that will change the wizarding world forever...
Hmm ... I wonder what potion Beth was buying? Good as always! All things considered, Beth handled the meeting with Fredd fairly well. Hopefully there will be an update soon!
Author's Response: The potion was... how shall I put it... of a preventative nature? She\'s just being sensible ;)
Did you give up on this story? Is it listed on another site? I would love to see how this progresses!
Author's Response: No no not given up - it is finished I\'m just having trouble getting uploads past the strict grammar rules here :) I\'m resubmitting tonight!
Are you going to continue with this story? It's really good! I'd love to see an update!
Author's Response: Yes Not Alone is completed, I just didn\'t think people here were reading it! I\'ll update by the weekend, cross my heart :) Thank you for your interest :D
I really love this story. Your writing is very captivating, leaving the reader wanting more and it's nice to read a story with the main character being a not so famous one from cannon.
Author's Response: Thank you very much, I\'ll post more soon. It\'s great to see a new reader!

H/G and R/Hr(DH spoilers are very minimal, just in terms of a use of a name- it doesnt follow canon storyline wise)
Very good story and interesting plot. Can't wait to find out who she really is. :)
Author's Response: Thank you!
Summary: Bodmin Moor is a cold and unforgiving place. When Halcyon Rosmerta is left stranded by her soon-to-be ex-boyfriend she finds herself having to depend upon the kindness of a rather strange man with a definate reluctance to go outside. But what lurks in his cellar?
Great start ... definitely leaves the reader wanting much more!
Great start ... definitely leaves the reader wanting much more!
Summary: Winner of the 2008 QSQ for Best Female Original Character.
Twelve years ago, one man's life was changed forever by three simple words: “Severus, I'm pregnant.”
Now, twelve years later, a girl will embark on the journey of a lifetime. But life at Hogwarts for a first year is far from simple, especially not when she's in the same year as Harry Potter. She will face enemies, choices and danger, while struggling to deal with her past's dark secrets that, after all these years, still threatens to destroy her.
One girl's journey. One man's desperate search. One last chance for Severus Snape to find the daughter he lost.
Great story, great characters, and great writing (although you do tend to get a bit too descriptive sometimes). The only criticism that I can give you is to get another beta to proof read each chapter. There are MANY missing or incorrect words throughout each chapter. Maybe too much reliance on spell checking and not enough reading? For example, even the very last sentence of this chapter: "Shiloh wanted for dearly to be away from the place because she felt as stupid as her favorite professor now thought she was. " The word "for" is not needed nor makes sense and shoudn't it be "this place" not "the place"?
This is a really great story and I'm excited to see where you're going with it. Can't wait for Snape to realize that Shiloh is his daughter!
Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked it so well. And, yes, I know there are a lot of typos and such, which is why I\'m currently working on finding a second, perhaps even third beta. But, despite that, I\'m really glat that you liked it and I hope you\'ll continue to read and enjoy.
Summary: The Second War is long over, and a new generation of Potters and Weasleys is ready to enter Hogwarts. Ron Potter, son of Harry and Ginny Potter, and his cousin, Harry Weasley, son of Ron and Hermione Weasley, both enter Hogwarts with a sense of fun and games...but when vengeful Death Eaters hear of Harry Potter's son entering Hogwarts, they plot to escape Azkaban and avenge their master's death through Ron Potter...and ultimately, the Boy Who Lived himself.
Good story, although it is kinda hard to keep the Harry's and Ron's straight! Really doesn't seem like Harry's immediate family is really grieving for him. No way would Ginny be that calm and just start teaching. I think your surprise is that your bringing Harry back somehow and Ginny already knows.
Author's Response: No, sorry, that\'s not my big \"surprise\"...but you\'ll find out soon enough. Thanks for R/Ring!

The past 2 chapters have been great! I'm really excited to see where this is going.
