Well, after a long hiatus, and a lot of life changes I'm back.
I've got one story for sure and possibly more. We'll just see how it goes.
Actually, mugglenet has been taken over by moderators drunk on their own power. Look for me on fanfiction.net under the penname: Sorcerer's Muse. I will be reposting all current stories there as well as any new work.
Well, that went about how I expected it to. Miranda is a bitch, probably told Ron all kinds of things to get him to dump Hermione. I guess the thing that gets me is Hermione wanting him back. I understand he is her first and maybe only love, but he left her after a few short months for the next pretty face. If I were her, that would really be all I needed to know about his true feelings, they just are not very deep. He is shallow and to centered on himself. Oh well, I still look forward to what Ginny and Hermione come up with. It is always a bad idea to get on Ginny's bad side.
Since this is in the Ginny/Harry Romance fics, I won't say anything about Gina. I look foreward to your next chapter and what happens with Ginny. Also, your writing is well done, I can see you have a purpose in most everything you do, and you are not rushed getting to anything. Keep up the good work and post soon.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Purpose means a lot, and even fluffy PWPs annoy me, because I think romance should have purpose, rather than reading about two people snogging all of the time--cos that's repetetive! Thanks again!
yesh, what a professor. When will ron wake up about Hermione? And Harry and Ginny? I'm surprised she hasn't killed him
Author's Response: She's getting pretty close... I'm waiting for the text on my computer to jump out at strangle me for not making Ginny more "aggresive"
Well, that was a twist. You did something that alot of people have done already. Turning Harry into a prat. Not sure if you meant to or not. Many stories have harry being a prat on purpose to push people away, I am curently trying to get one up on this site myself, but you did it in a way that he is unaware of it. It makes it much harder in my opinion for Ginny to forgive him. So my question is when are Hermione and Ginny going to directed atheir anger at Harry. Ron too, he has always wanted Harry and Ginny to get together because he didn't think Harry would hurt her. If he knew what Harry had said about Ginny after kissing her, he would in my opinion beat him to a pulp
Author's Response: Wow...quite a long review! Thanks for commenting. Harry, as much as he is, really IS a prat. He can be immature and oftentimes, very heartless. Hermione and Ron KNOW that, after he screamed at them during OotP. Hermione doesn't take it personally, most of her grief is towards the deaths of her parents and what Ginny has to go through. Ginny, unfortunately, will take some time to forgive Harry. She knows him as this nice person, except for the one time he talked back to her in OotP. About Ron beating Harry to a pulp, Ron is reasonably oblivious to certain obvious things. He won't find out for quite some time about Harry and Ginny and what happened for 2 reasons: 1. This isn't something Harry would want to share with Ron. He's not going to bother him with the fact that he kissed Ginny, yelled at Hermione, and broke Ginny's heart. If Harry knows better, he's going to keep Ron out of this for as long as possible. 2. To be very honest, I haven't quite predicted Ron's initial reaction when he DOES find out. Some writers have the whole "I hate Harry" Ron, and others have "'Bout frickin' time" Ron. I, personally, would like to twist both of those things together, but my time is limited. Thanks for you review, again. Hope this answers your question.
A nice twist. He gets to spend the day with Hermione.
Author's Response: Thanks you. I just needed something to push me towards what I want to achive in the up coming chapters. I needed one of his friends to be there for the next chapter to understand something. Sorry I'm confusing you, aren't I?
A great job again. We get to see the other side of the picture, different points of view. I hope you continue to include them through out your story, as that is the one area where I feel JKR fell of in books 4 and 5. I think the focus needs to be back on the freindships and not just Harry even though he is the equall. It looks like that is where you are going, and I can't wait. Your characterization of Molly Weasley as a mother bear is dead on, I'll bet if she is an animagus that that is what she is. Ginny, could be a mother bear in the making.
I have to say that was really good. Ron's needleing of Harry is great in regards to Ginny. The session with Snape was good too. i'm not quite sure why Dumbledore puts up with the way he treats Harry, or anyone else who is not a slitherin. I understand as a spy he has to play both sides, but the manner in which he treats Harry is too much. I would think Dumbledore would put a stop to it. I will be interested to see what Harry does with this new knowledge. Perhaps Dumbledore trust Sanpe because he is the one who brought Harry to Dumbledore after Voldemort vanished
Shopping for dress robes, boy did he get a lesson in women. Two patronuses, and wandless magic, both really good, but the best is Ginny's Patronus. That is the best, and is in line with what JKR herself would have done.
Yes, Ginny would send a Howler. Man I love her character. And Harry would try to stay and fight for the Dursleys. This keeps getting better and better. I'll make a prediciton here, it won't be to long before Dean is history.
This was over all the best fanfic I have ever read. The idiocy of the slitherins on the train ride home is amazing. A sixteen year old boy already near death takes out Voldemort and they still don't get it. I can't wait to read year seven
That is really good catching the Legilimency on OtP like that. Of course it had to happen, Ginny is going to be used against him. Hopefully it won't be to painful for her. For him, I'm sure it will nearly destroy him, especcially if she were to die. You wouldn't be that cruel, would you?
That was excellent. Harry's continued rage at Dumbledore was great, and it is obvious that no one knows the prophecy besides Harry and Dumbledore at this point. He storms off, only to find Ginny. You are good, and getting better
You surprised me, I thought for sure there would be an attack on the train. Good to see Remus back and have Harry turn some of the advice he is getting back around and use it on others. Your Harry is really growing as your story goes along. He is really starting to accept that he has a familly now.
The memories you chose, were really good for this chapter. Harry's discovery of making out is pretty good, but I thought Ginny already got him with a french kiss at the ball. If I'm not mistaken the book version of the Sorecerer's Stone says Jame's was a chaser also.
I actually found this chapter to be more emotional than the previous. The Weasleys giving him an ornament and putting a hand on the clock for him was really good. Voldemort is really busy in your story, must have finally figured out how to get at the Dursleys. Can't Harry ever have a day that is suppossed to be fun stay that way?
Another author who has Ginny using Voldemort's name and refering to him as Tom. I would be interested to hear your reasons why.
I knew going to the Burrow was a bad idea. The Death Eaters already attacked it once. The silver hand, would it affect Lupin if he was not in his werewolf form? I have no idea maybe, maybe not. I agree the wizarding world is more strict with there kids than the muggle world. IE going beyond snogging. At the same time things happen at a much younger age in the wizard world 17 for adult hood. I would bet many marraiges occur not long after they turn 17. Some could even be younger. Heck there are states that allow it at 15 if the parents consent to it. I believe it is called emancipation. Giving the rights of an adult to a child.
That was great, I don't know what else to say besides that. Good to see that Harry is going to talk to Dumbledore, and that it looks like he is deciding to fight. Did Ginny kiss him or not? I'm sure she did, and you have got it right. She is the only one who is going to reach him.
This was a good chapter, showing the beginings of recovery from the battle. Interesting to see Hermione blaming herself just like Harry does. I hope it is not going to be to much longer before Harry spills the prophecy. In some ways, that is a key. I think until they hear it and don't run from him, he is just not going to be able to believe that they care
I agree, don't worry about the OWL system. Sorry to see Ginny didn't make prefect. Maybe better in the long run, Dumbledore is not stupid, and though he cares about people, he is fighting a war and Harry is his sword. Ginny can reach him, what is more important being a Prefect, or saving Harry from himself. Glad to see that Dumbledore is finding out just how poor of a job Snape did in those occulemency lessons.
