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.
Wow, that is brutal, an aniversary celebration by the dark Lord. I would have to say that Harry was very well behaved towards his DADA professor. i myself in that situation, would likely have hexed her into next year
Ok, that has to be the best start to year six of any that I have read to this point, and I have read a number of them. I like it as much as my own, and I am partial to that as you can guess. The idea that the Order would use Hermione to keep in contact with Harry through the use of a muggle telephone, is one of the best I have ever heard of. Of course the Death Eaters would ignore that possible connection. I can tell that you have thought about where you are going with this an awful lot. You are in no hurry to get anywhere, and yet I am glued to what you wrote because you do such a good job of telling me how Harry is feeling. That's it for chapter one, I'm on to chapter two now.
I really like that you are showing the effects of the Ministry battle on the others. Harry needs to learn that death happens to everyone and it is not the end of the world
I like it, exactly what I expect out of Ginny. awsume job of getting fred and george in on the act.
I like it. Funny how girls think guys are the clueless ones. Looks like they all are to me. I look forward to an update soon. You could "rush" this one if you wanted too.
Good to see that Hermione realizes why Ron won't have her now. Interesting to see that Ron might be heading her way at the same time she decides to finally make time for him.
Author's Response: Ah, but it never actually works out like that, now does it? ... *sigh* Unfortunately, they've got some more interesting things coming their way. I hadn't planned for the story to exceed twenty chapters, but it just might.
Really cool that he is back, and that she did it by confessing to him. Truth be told, none of her healer training mattered in saving him, did it? do we get a wedding or anything else really good like atruely happy ending?
Author's Response: It's not so much that she confessed, but that she jogged his memory. No, her Healer training wasn't involved in saving him. You'll get more. No wedding, I don't think. At least not in this story. Happy ending ... perhaps. :)
I'm not sure what to think. The writing is really good. It seems like Hermione finally is getting her priorities straight, but Ron dosn't trust her. She has hurt him to many times I guess. I hope they both heal enough to get together at some time in this fic.
Author's Response: Well, I wouldn't trust her if she did that to me ... (There was something not quite right there ...) It's got to be real. Not everyone gets a fairytale ending.
Keep them coming, I can't wait to see who the traitor is, and if Ron wakes up
Author's Response: Oh, good. By the way, I will read your stories. I'm intrigued, I just haven't gotten around to it yet. :)
Hardly a need to call a witness, when the accused admits her service just before then. Also, why rely on testimony of seeing the Dark Mark? Why not simply pull up the sleeve on her shirt? Beyond that, we see Ron change his mind. Now, will they finally get together? More likely we will see Adrianne and Voldemort again before they do.
Author's Response: She did. And they didn't really need to call Hermione either. But, since the questioner had rather lost his nerve, and they had bothered to bring her in, I thought it best to go like that. And how else would I have her see the inside of the trial? :) There, now you see it. I'm a fraud. ;) We will see more of Voldemort and Adrienne, I'm afraid, but his is only waiting back at Shenandoah for Hermione. We might see more of them sooner than you think.
It is great to see that Ron will prove Hermione wrong for once. At least that is where I think you are going with this. They were meant to be together, and the only way she is going to save him is to admit it to herself and him. Keep writing, and I am on my way to see your oneshot
Author's Response: My one-shot that isn't up yet. I have many others, but the one I am speaking of is titled 'Regret' and isn't your typical fluffy Ron/Hermione one-shot.
keep it coming
Author's Response: Indeed I shall. :)
I think it is pretty good work regardless of how the author feels. It is hard to write stuff you don't really want to. I say that because I think you want to write them together, not having to stay apart. So in my opinion you did a great job. Now, like others, I'm going to ask you to take a look at my fic too and please post a review. I have two of them here on mugglenet, just do a search for my pen name: huskers
Author's Response: Thanks for your email, Huskers, and I'm sorry I haven't gotten to reading and reviewing your stories yet. But it's on my list! I promise. :)
I love what you are doing with this. I think it is interesting that you have them, especially Ginny trying to keep up with Dean while starting to see Harry. Not sure she would do that in J.K's stuff, but then this is your's isn't it. Part of the fun of fan fics. I think having them caught by Draco is actually better than Dean by the way.
Author's Response: Thanks for your email! I'd be glad to read your stories. :) And concerning your review-- The reason I have Ginny still with Dean is because I'm trying to keep them a secret for as long as possible. I don't think Harry would be too comfortable with people knowing how deeply he cares for her, especially with Voldemort back. And thanks for acknowledging that Draco was better than Dean... I think so too. :)
Ok, this was a great chapter. Everything about it was fun and about how you would expect a new romance to go. Now, as to your thoughts about continuing this. Please do so, and don't modify it to fit the events of HBP. You have a great story going here, finish it out as you had always planned too, and then write something else that takes into account HBP. Iv'e read one other story, where the author took inot account the events of HBP after they had already developed their own plot lines, and it has ruined the story in my opinion. Please don't do that to yours.
Really good job with this. You really do catch the emotions of the two pretty well. I think I would have to agree with Dean though, that Ginny wouldn't. Truthfully, I think JKR's Ginny would have broken it off with Dean right quick. However, this is your story and you can do what you want. I guess now that she and Harry are making out on the train that she has broken it off? Looking foreward to your next chapter, can't wait to see what happens at the Burrow. By the way that was a great twist, surprising Harry like that with a trip to the Burrow and not Grimmauld Place. Also can't wait to see what happens when Harry finally tells Ron the truth.
Author's Response: I know, it's been bothering me. Would she or wouldn't she? However-- remember that it's only been a week since they first got together. Not really tooterribly long. Glad you liked the twist with the Burrow... me too. :) Thanks for reading and reviewing, Huskers!
This is excelent. Payback is hell, ignore someone for five years, and of course they'll want to return the favor a little bit.
Author's Response: Ah, but he didn't mean to hurt her... and I think Ginny can find it in her heart to forgive him. :) Thanks for reviewing, Huskers!
Ok, This is a pretty good job of writing and I like your story a lot. You mention, that you changed some things because people said you had Ginny OOC in ch 9. I would say unfortunately, that you might be a little off her too. I think Ginny would have not sat quite so quietly while Ron interrorgated her and Harry. More likely she would have treated him in the manner she did Harry during the detention that they got together in. I still am enjoying your story and can't wait to read your next chapter. I hope she tells Dean soon.
Author's Response: I debated with myself over both Ron's and Ginny's reactions. I finally decided on this because I think Ginny would be able to recognize when to yell and when to shut up. This was a time when she needed to shut up. Anyway, thanks for reading and reviewing!
You continue to do a good job with your story. I am amazed that you can spread a day out over so many chapters and keep me enthralled
Author's Response: And it continues in chapter seven!
