I am a 32 year old pastor of a small church in rural Alabama. I think Harry Potter has an incredible amount of positives for this generation of children. I have a beautiful wife, who reminds me a great deal of Hermione, and two wonderful daughters, the oldest is 2, the youngest just born. Someday they will read these books with mommy and daddy there to explain all the magic stuff.
The Ballad of Lucius Malfoy: An Unappealing Appeal by Schmerg_The_Impaler
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 63]
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.
You're brilliant Schmerg. I think the author's note was the best part of this one.
Author's Response: Thank you! This is probably the only time ever that the author\'s note is the best part of a fanfic...
Summary: History, sadly, is not really written by the winners; it's written by the historians. Someday we will all be (at best) footnotes in someone's history book. How much of our passion and devotion will filter through to the distant reader of that book?
Wonderfully different take of the Epilogue. Great job, and very scholarly!
Author's Response: Thank you, Chris. I\'m honored. I figured this was my one chance to sound like the academic I am...
Summary: What have the brilliant Weasley twins, Fred and George, come up with now? To help stop Voldemort sending Harry nightmares, and to extract a little revenge while they are at it, the twins develop a new product and test it on the boy-who-needed-a-good-sleep. Post HBP oneshot.
Absolutly incredible twist at the end. Didn't see it coming at all and thought it was brilliant. Great work
Author's Response: Thanks, but did you yawn while reading about Ron and Harry yawning all the time?
Summary: We love writing stories about our favorite characters in our favorite universe. But what do those characters DO when we're taking a break, suffering from writer's block or abandon a story? A 'behind the scenes' look with a lot of cliches.
Very funny and lots of fun.
Summary: For Lord Voldemort, life is going swell, and everything is juuust peachy... until a ghostly visitor arrives. EXTRAORDINARILY silly.
EDIT: For some bizarre reason that I can't fully comprehend, this story WON the "Things that Go Bump In The Night" challenge in the Winter's Tale Challenge.
Terribly cute. Too bad Voldy doesn't have his blog anymore to complain about Bob.
Author's Response: =) True, that... then again, she\'d probably find his password and completely edit everything he wrote, knowing her.
Summary: The line that probably best describes the legacy that the Weasley twins left behind after their Great Escape, during Umbridge’s brief rein at Hogwarts. Their legend lasted years afterwards ... but eventually, the only permanent physical reminder was the roped off corner of one corridor, containing a small part of swamp. The mystery of its origins is merely smiled at reminiscently by teachers, and the students can do nothing but spread rumours of how it came to be. When little Janey Weasley starts life at Hogwarts, the mystery is still unsolved. On a whim, and desperate for recognition, she writes home to her father, asking how it came to be. When Ron replies with the true story, a chain of events begins that might just be the making of the next true Hogwarts mischief legend ...
**One-Shot, Post Hogwarts** Now available as AudioFiction Episode #95!
Very good. Lots of fun and well written. Although you really should be doing yoru homework.
Author's Response: You\'re probably right ... but this is just so much more FUN! Thanks for reviewing, anyway. =D
Author's Response: Reviewer #50! Have some cyber cookies!
Summary: Sequel to “It Unscrews The Other Way”
Due to popular demand, our favourite imaginary Weasley is back, this time coming to the end of her first year at Hogwarts. She is now an established trouble-maker, but there is always that issue of grades vs. good times. With various relatives (well, her favourite uncles) telling her one thing, and other relatives (well, her mother) telling her another, anyone would be at a loss as what to do ...
Very good, better then the first. I liked that it was told through letters. That is a always a good way of telling a story. Hope the homework is going well.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! Always appreciated. Homework\'s going - *is suddenly crushed by falling text books*
Summary: A 7th year fic in which Harry, Ron and Hermione search for the remaining Horcruxes and ultimately battle Voldemort. Post HBP; in canon, no slash. H/G R/Hr
Chapter 25 is up; Chapter 26 is with my beta!
Well I see that my previous review was somewhat ill-timed. However, the story looks pretty interesting regardless so we will see what happens.
Author's Response: Lol yes, when I first read you\'re review I had a feeling that you wouldn\'t be too happy with the next chapter but I\'m glad you still like the story. Like I said before, there is a very good reason for them getting back together so early in the story and I promise you\'ll see that closer to the end. Thanks for the review and I hope you enjoy the rest of the story!
Very nice idea bringing the thimble in. I don't think anyone else has done that. Good suspense on the Ron thing too. Can't wait to see where the stone steps go. :)
Author's Response: Thanks, ckwright51! I wanted to show that as much as Voldemort hated living at the orphanage, he still felt a connection to it. Glad you liked it :)
Very good so far. It seems that while Harry and Ginny got back together a little quickly, Ron and Hermione still have a ways to go. That's good to. Looking forward to the next chapter.
Author's Response: Thanks, ckwright51! I\'m glad you\'re still enjoying it! The next chapter should be up pretty soon, thanks again!
Great chapter. I love the way you are dealing with Ron and Hermione. Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Thanks a lot, ckwright51! I really appreciate the review!
Very good thoughts on Harry being a Horcrux. They all make sense and I hope you are correct. Great chapter and nice job on the Ron/Hermione thing. It is a lot of fun to read.
Author's Response: Thanks, ckwright51! I\'m glad you\'re enjoying! I\'m praying that I\'m right about Harry not being a Horcrux, but I dont know. Anyway, thanks for the review!
Well done. I was hoping for a little Harry/GInny drama and you certainly didn't disappoint. Now if you can just make it past the summer, without them getting together, this will be a fun read. Good start
Author's Response: Thanks for the review, ckwright51! I really appreciate it. I do hope you still think that it\'s a fun read once you\'ve read a little more of the story. I won\'t say what happens in some of the upcoming chapters that you haven\'t read yet but everything happens for a reason... a very important one at that lol Thanks again!
Oh the fun of Hermione and Ron romance stuff. Good job writing all of that. NIce Cliff hanger on the last chapter as well. Keep up the good work.
Author's Response: Thanks so much for the review, ckwright51! I\'m really glad you liked it. Writing Ron/Hermione stuff is always fun ;)
Summary: A missing moment from Order of the Phoenix. When Harry goes down to the lake to brood, Ginny follows.
Very interesting one-shot. I wonder if Harry would have figured it out sooner if they would have shared a moment like this in OotP. Guess will never know. Good job!
Summary: Third one-shot in the Janey Weasley series.
We skip ahead to her fifth year, although this particular saga is told through the eyes of ordinary, Quidditch Captain, Hufflepuff boy, Frankie, as he realises that even though everybody loves Janey Weasley ... he might just love her a little bit more. What’s a young, Hufflepuff Quidditch Captain to do? Ask the people close to her for advice? Ask his team mates for advice? Do something bold and daring for the first time in his life? ALL of the above? I guess you’ll have to read and find out, won’t you?
Very, Very funny. I am really enjoying the stories, and I hope that you have recovered from that text book attack. And make sure that you are keepiing up with your home... (an angry mob of 15 year olds attack reviewer.) :)
Author's Response: Lol! Unfortunately, the H-Word id still not going down to well *rubs cartoon bandaged head* because I\'ve been stripping wallpaper rather than writing essays. But hey. Glad you\'re enjoying the stories, there\'s one more which is validated at the minute, so ... have fun!
Summary: The War has been over for five years, and life is happy. When Harry and Ginny Potter find out they are going to be parents for the first time, they have no idea what to do.
But when an incident occurs, Ginny is ordered to be on bed-rest for the rest of her pregnancy. Humor ensues as Ginny tries to direct Harry through the daily duties as a housewife.

Really good job on the emotions here. Although I am not sure if Ron would have gotten the significance of it all, as much as Aruthor, Ron seeing his friend and sister in pain like that certainly could have brought forth some emotion. Very good chapter. God Bless!
Author's Response: Thanks! I had a bit of a hard time writing Ron and Hermione into this, but my beta seemed to think I had it good enough. Thanks for the constructive critisim though! I appreciate that! Thanks! God Bless!!
Great chapter. Sorry I have been out of this story for so long. I don't know why I missed the updates. I can't wait to see what they are having. Take Care
Author's Response: Good to see you again! I should say sorry to for not keeping up with Never Alone. School is just so busy! Thanks for taking time to read this! I really appreciate it. I think you will be pleased with the end! Take care and God bless!
Two girls, just like my two daughters, cool. I think it is a very good idea to jump to month nine at this point. You have kept the story moving well, but it would probably start to drag a bit around month 7. Great job so far. Take Care
Author's Response: That was my exact idea! I didn\'t want a long, long story on my hands, so I cut it a little. Thanks!
Wonderful chapter. That scene actually sounds like my wife, "helping" me do dishes when her baby tummy was too big reach the sink. Great job. God bless!
Author's Response: Thanks! Glad you liked it! God Bless!
