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.
Summary: PRE-HBP!!! Harry starts out his sixth year in sorrow at the loss of Sirius. Ginny helps him to overcome it, and our heroes learn a lot about life and love. This story has been completed! Special thanks to my mod, Danielle and to my fantastic readers!
About time he realizes Ginny can make her own decisions. I also love the part about marked for greatness, not neccessarily good.
Author's Response: Thank you! That seems to be a favorite line of many people! ;)
A good chapter. I liked Dumbledore's reaction to Harry wanting to leave to find Lupin and Tonks. Glad to see Harry decide to listen for once, he has been on one failed rescue mission, how many more does he go on before Voldemort gets lucky and kills him? The last line from Ginny is really touching. That is what the two of them do for each other. They are each others strength.
Author's Response: Thank you. I don't know about you, but I'm ready for Harry to start maturing in the books. He can't be a little boy forever. I'm glad you enjoyed it, I've been having fun with yours!
A good chapter, and good that Ron and Hermione know the truth. Harry's strength is his friends. I hope you aren't killing one of the four with your "don't hate me." author's note. Keep the chapters coming. I like the blood bond
Author's Response: The next chapter is in! Glad you enjoyed it! As for if anyone's gonna die, you'll just have to wait. Keep an eye on spoilers and other things, if you're watchful you might find something that gives things away. Of course, some people are totally off.
Well, unlike some people who don't read the catagories, Putting Harry and Hermione together in a Harry/Ginny story. I just don't get it. I can't wait to see how you are going to get them back together. You do a really good job with your story, making sure there is plenty of detail, and not being in a rush to get where you are going. Keep writing, and hopefully sometime soon, Harry will see the light.
Author's Response: Thank you very much. Every time I have tried to write a story I'll write the beginning, then the end and try to fill up the middle. I have never gone back to write the middle of a story once the end is written though. In all honesty, I don't have an ending for this yet which is probably why I've kept up with it for twenty chapters already(actually more, only twenty are up though). Pacing is always difficult for me to do. I typically want to get back to the "fun" stuff. I'm so glad you like it!
I still think Ron is going to kill Harry when he finds out that he and Ginny are back together.
Author's Response: No, actually the fight is over. I haven't written much of them getting along but this fight has finished. I should probably go update and make it clearer...
You wanted to know from my last reveiw if my guess was correct. I was only half correct. I thought you were going to kill both Lupin and Tonks. Now, your next spoiler. Since this is a H/G fic, I will assume she is not sitting with someone she should not be and not doing something with them she should not be doing. Please, that would just be to cruel. Maybe she finds Tonks. This chapter was pretty good. I do have a few complaints. Harry handled the death of Lupin a little to easily for me. I like that he handled it well, but it was to easy. The other thing I disliked is that Dumbledore brought Harry up to tell him without Ginny, and he provided the comfort to him that only Ginny is really able to give him. Dumbledore knows this, and I think would have requested the both of them to be there for this news. That way Ginny could have done what she does, and that is save Harry from himself.
Author's Response: Haha, a love triangle!!! I think not. I agree that Lupin's death was a little too lightly taken by Harry. I fear I might have taken the lazy way out. Also, a valid point you make. Dumbledore would have told Ginny as well, it was her vision and she should have been included. Thank you very much for the review and for not hating me for killing Lupin! People seem a little upset with me...
A good chapter. Nice to see Hermione fianlly take him to task. Ron's going to kill Harry for getting back together with Ginny? I can see that he wanted them together because Harry wouldn't hurt her, and he did. Now he has the chace to do it again.
Author's Response: Thank you. As for the spoiler, you'll just have to wait for the next chapter...
That was good. I'm trying to decide if I like the idea that Remus, in his werewolf form protected Tonks. I like the concept that his love for her would be enough to overcome the madness of his transformation, I'm just trying to decide if I buy it. Either way, really cool that you did it. As it is something no one else has.
Author's Response: It was an interesting idea. I'm really into the idea of "love conquers all" and whether or not it would really happens we don't know. Also, it was an original thought and as stated in a previous review, I don't have many of those! ;) Thanks for the review!
That was pretty cool having him find things from his parents. Dosn't look like the make up is going to go very well with Ginny in the next chapter from your teaser. I look foreward to reading it and hope you update soon.
Author's Response: I wanted to do something very personal with Harry in this chapter, kind of focus on just him for a little. I'm glad you liked it.
Well, I think I was a little dissapointed with that chapter. I didn't like the lofty attitude of the girls towards the not undertanding guys. Before even telling them what was wrong, they both assumed that neither of them could possibly understand because they were guys. And when they finally did tell them what was wrong, it was with a holyier than you attitude. Really, a crummy stereotypes and ones which I feel Hermione and Ginny are not ones to participate in to this extent. They are both usually more patient and kind about explaining the thought process of the fairer sex.
Author's Response: In defense of myself, I think I might have been on a guy-hating spree that day or something. This actually is a chapter that I might redo when I get time. I feel as if Ron might be one to not get it through his skull but I agree that the girls would not have gone on the assumption that they wouldn't understand from the beginning. Thanks for another honest review!
Good, he gets her back, at least partially. I'm really sorry, but I am trying to keep up with dozens of stories. Ron and Hermione are not together in yours? I thought that they were, and don't remember Krum at all.
Author's Response: I have a lot of stories to keep up with as well, so no worries. I'll just fill you in here. Ron and Hermione aren't together but Ron is pulling his, "I'm not jealous, I've just suddenly developed a horrible hatred for this man moving in on my woman!" thing and Krum is the DADA teacher. Does that help jog your memory?
Me again, does Harry want to tell Ginny her loves her?? If so, why does she not want to hear it??
Author's Response: In chapter....oh, I don't know which it is. Let me pull up a second window and check....22, Ginny tells Harry that going out is fine but she doesn't want to hear about love until she herself tells him cause she's not ready for it. ;)
Good job. Now, what happened to Tonks? And cursing Malfoy, too much fun. I'm glad you are not makeing changes to deal with new cannon. Your story is just fine the way it is going.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the reviews that you've given me. I'm doing my best to get the next chapter up soon!
A good chapter
Author's Response: Thank you very much!
I agree with the review posted by The Maurader. I would still like to read more of what you have in mind
Ron should have told her to put the bat boggie hex back on him.
I get the feeling Ginny is not done with Harry yet.
This has been excellent so far. I like that you are taking your time and getting plenty of detail into the story
What a great way to give Ginny a little comfort after being alone for the first half of the year. Molly's coments about being very good at pretending, were just great. I wonder, with Percy's child being born, how long Ginny will be able to keep it secret about her own.
Author's Response: Thank-you for your review! I'm so glad that Molly has been well received! *dances*
Wow. time turners are an amazing thing. I hate to think what Harry is going to do when he finds out.
Author's Response: Thank-you... I was very afraid that people would see "timeturner" and stop reading. I hope I manage to do the timeturner and the subject matter justice. Thank-you for reading!
