*practically on all fours* hahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!! man is it worth it, every time i trip over to the humor section i find something hilarious!!! hahahaha!!! i love how dedalus and hestia were all arguing about it, neither really getting it right- hahahaha, i love that. i wish harry WOULD write a biography of his life- It's not his style, but it would clear a lot of stuff up. lol. sadly, the series' is over (unless, to quote JKR, "We [can] try an eighth in about ten years") lol yeah it was funneh!!! good job!!!!! please please please update, i am so glad to know you're not abandoning your story xD good job!

Author's Response: I\'m glad you like it and thanks for reviewing. Harry doesn\'t seem the type to print his story, though it would definitely sell. Maybe Ron could write it. lol. But don\'t worry, this story won\'t be abandoned. (I like it too much!) Real life just gets in the way of updates sometimes.

Nominated for QSQ 2008 Best Humour Story!
Reviewer: thesmart1 Signed
Date: 09/23/08 Title: Chapter 4: Epic Ephemeral Epilogue

this isn't a very funny humor fic. Try a little more for funny than mock-sad. just doesn't work. sorry

Author's Response:

The ending is not supposed to be funny – the story starts out very dark, and similarly ends the same way. I do understand that though Out of the Darkness is a humour story, it is certainly not funny through-and-through, and that was my intention. It is a comedic tragedy or a tragic comedy, depending on how you want to word it.

Before I ran Voldemort over with the cement mixer in Chapter One, I had killed off Hermione for no better reason than to accentuate how dire Harry’s situation was. The end of the fourth and last chapter was written to remind the reader of the rather depressing consequences of such an eventuality, and to introduce the premise of much more serious sequel.

At any rate, thank you for reviewing, and I hope you have a better understanding of the intended point of the story.

The Light of His Life by The Scribbler

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: The Marauders seventh year at Hogwarts is about to begin and everyone is excited, but for James, something—or rather someone—weighs heavily on his mind. All summer he had worked to change into a better person… all for Lily Evans. The only question now is if she’ll give him the second chance he needs to change her mind.

The sequel to The Beginning and Unexpected Hope.

oh, good, good, very good!! made me laugh. quite cute too. especially with the vivid image i'm getting of james and the marauders pacing and going through 1001 things he must not do around lily....hahahahaha! nice. i often prefer it when lily/james stories are in james' POV. i like the name james. haha. random, i know. i really liked this! i wish you could've continued and wrote about the date. lol this was very good :)

Author's Response: One question: have you had sugar recently? Ha, ha! I don\'t mind if your review is a little random. You still reviewed and that\'s what I love. Any feedback is good to have! Sorry about the date, though. I want to leave that open for you to imagine. At least you enjoyed what I DID write! Thank you so much!

A Different Kind of Love by Nymphea

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: James gives Lily a letter on the last day of sixth year:
I’m going to be perfectly honest with you—I’m not that good with feelings. I usually just ask Remus; he’s pretty good with that sort of thing. But I can’t ask Remus to write this letter for me, so you’re just going to have to bear with me while I set the record straight before the school year ends and I forget how to describe my feelings about things between us. [2000 reads! thanks guys!]

Beautifully written and touching. The persona of James was illustrated magnificently and I really loved this. Excellent job. :)

One-Way Street by Nymphea

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Sequel to A Different Kind of Love: Lily's response to James' letter saying he loves her.
Part of me wants to say, please, let’s just be friends and forget what we’ve written to each other—these moments are too precious to risk spoiling them. But I know enough of the world to know that time is a one-way street. Forward is the only direction we can go.

That was great... I liked how Lily was less clear about her feelings and more unsure, which makes sense for her character. Wonderfully written.

A Proper Goodbye by coolh5000

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • Past Featured Story
Summary: On Christmas Day of Teddy Lupin's seventh year at Hogwarts, his godfather gives him a present he will never forget - the chance to meet his parents.
Reviewer: thesmart1 Signed
Date: 01/01/11 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Well, first off this wasn't canon. Harry would never have gone to find the Stone because it's too much of a temptation. He promised Dumbledore he wouldn't and I don't believe he would have.

On the other hand, you wrote this beautifully and actually made me cry. The ability to draw emotions from readers is infinitely more impressive then sticking to canon. This was touching, and you are certainly a good writer.

Year One begins.
Reviewer: thesmart1 Signed
Date: 06/01/11 Title: Chapter 1: The Sorting

Overall, I enjoyed the first chapter.

I think you may have introduced a few too many characters because I couldn't really keep track of everyone around. A slightly unrealistic number of names recognizable to the original series.

On the other hand, I liked how you included new things like the circle for where Voldemort was killed, and the hat having burn marks.

I am wary that this is going to be almost exactly like the first Harry Potter book, but it's only the first chapter. Your writing, spelling and grammar was flawless.

I am also wary that your characters are going to be just like their predecessors- Al just like Harry, Rosie just like Hermione. I hope the characters develop original personalities. I also hope Al gets himself a friend apart from Rose.

Anyway, I'm going to keep reading and I'll let you know what I think as I go along.

Author's Response: Wow, thesmart1, it's so cool that you''ve put so much effort in these reviews. I really appreciate an honest opinion! Looking back (I think I wrote this chapter at least three years ago), the structure and characters probably ARE too close to SS. As a fan, I just love writing about the existing universe, so it's sometimes easy to forget to do new things. And you're absolutely right, it takes a while for the kids to stop being carbon copies of their parents.

I like the dialogue between the cousins, although I'd like it if a non-related person was included in the circle of friends. Someone of your own making. I'd like to see how you would put that in. I haven't read it all yet, so maybe you will.

I also enjoyed the parts with Scorpius in them. I'm really hoping he starts talking soon, because his vow of silence thing is a little tedious. I thought it was so funny when his white-blond hair was turned black, well done with some symbolism there. Or you might've just done that for contrast. Either way, I liked it.

You seem to have a thing for two-sentence paragraphs. It's not really bad, it's just a little difficult to read. 

You've made Rose a distinct character, just like Hermione, which is understandable but I do hopes he develops some of her own traits.

Overall, I liked it, but I'm really hoping for some unpredictable action for the next chapter. I'll let you know. 

Author's Response: It's funny that you should point out my propensity for short paragraphs, because it's something I've always been told. I do tend to like snappier paragraphs. Scorpius's hair is definitely a piece of (fairly obvious) symbolism. I wanted to make him physically different from Draco, partly because there were already too many "clone" characters, partly because I wanted to set him apart from his family and partly because I just thought it seemed cool. :)

That was great! I'm glad to hear some plot thickening. I was very pleased with the development of Al and Scorpius' relationship. You also keep up a good camaraderie with the cousins. This was an enjoyable read, well paced and kept me interested throughout. Well done indeed.

Author's Response: I swear, as I sit here right now, I cannot remember what happens in this chapter! :) Glad you liked it, though.

Reviewer: thesmart1 Signed
Date: 06/02/11 Title: Chapter 4: Generations

Well, alright chapter, but i'm not thrilled with restarting the DA. That's old stuff, you're not coming up with new things to happen. Not to mention very different circumstances; they haven't got someone brilliant to teach them, nor do they have a reason to learn defense (such as Voldemort being back). It just didn't sit right wig me. However, I still like reading this for aforementioned reasons, and you are a good writer.

Author's Response: My rationale for the New DA was A) I thought it would be a handy plot device and a good way to bring the characters together for something other than typical classes, sports, meals, etc, B) because I thought that, having heard stories of their parents' past glories, the kids would logically want to follow in their footsteps and C) I anticipated a time when they would actually need defensive skills, and figured that I should give them a little help preparing. :)

Reviewer: thesmart1 Signed
Date: 06/02/11 Title: Chapter 5: In The Forbidden Forest

I liked the car reference, and the Care of Magical Creatures Class was pretty original. I find that you're making the characters older than their years, though- they're eleven, too young to r doing the DA. Harry was 15. They talk older, and do more advanced spells- for example, they don't do color spells until sixth year. Apart from that, I liked this chapter.

Author's Response: Even when I was writing the story, I kind of struggled with writing the characters as eleven, since I wanted a slightly more mature cast to work with. You're right, they probably are a bit too old for their ages.

Reviewer: thesmart1 Signed
Date: 06/02/11 Title: Chapter 6: The Life and Legacy of Nicolas Flamel

I saw someone else said they liked the description of Hagrid's hut- same for me, that was good.

The entire chapter I kept thinking "Wow, it's like Harry arguing a point and Hermione and Ron being skeptical as in the sixth book." It's a little repetitive.

I liked how Scorpius came along to Hagrid's hut. Al had said he'd be Scorpius' friend, but he hadn't acted like that before now.

Author's Response: Again, I seriously don't even remember what happened in this chapter, which is pretty bad, since I'm the one who wrote it!
