Hmmm, what to say... I love Harry Potter!

July 2006: At the moment, I'm working on a 10 chapter story on Molly and Arthur Weasley - they don't get nearly enough pages!! I've also written a couple of oneshots regarding Sybill Trelawney and her prophecies. Only one is published here - I might do more if I get a few more reviews.. :-)

The Daughter of Light by Magical Maeve
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 587]

Summary: An Irish witch languishes in the darkness of her family home, confined by her father and circumstances. What will it take to bring her out of this exile? The chance to return to Hogwarts? The opportunity to participate in the fight against Voldemort and his Death Eaters? Or will it be Severus Snape, a man she did not expect to see again in her lifetime?



This is canon compliant to OoTP but written pre-HBP.



Reviews and constructive criticism are most welcome, and thanks go to Ashwinder who kindly beta read the chapters for me. :-)

Finally! Fifteen times I've tried to review this fantastic fic..........and fifteen times I've been logged out!! Anyway, really liked part too "go hiontach" as we say in Ireland which means brilliant. I really liked the way you included the "cupla focail as gaeilge" it's so nice to see some Irish words thrown in!! I couldn't stop laughing at your portrayal of Finn and Arthur's bewilderness of the thick accent. Throughout your story I've always really liked the way you planted little clues at the start eg. Maeve's hands disappearing.....so what's the deal with the spider and the harp? Hmm interesting....... So I might as well finish this review before I'm unwillingly logged out again. A Brilliant fic by all accounts, sad that it is finished but looking forward to the sequel and the oneshots. Ar fheabhas!!

Author's Response: Thanks so much for persevering and leaving the review! Well, now that the last part is up you can find out what the deal is with the spider and the harp....*grins* Glad you liked Finn... had to squeeze ina few words of gaeilge in there somewhere and the best way to do it was through Finn. :-)

Just a review to say...... that this story is fantastic!!! I really like the way you keep us interested by not handing us all the information to us on a plate.... Poor Ron is all I can say!! He can never get it right but its why we (and Hermione) love him so!! Keep up the GREAT work!

 

Summary:

It is ambitious Lily Evans' 7th and final year at Hogwarts. She is very excited about being one step closer to becoming an Auror and thrilled about being back to school altogether.

But there is one little annoyance: the Marauders. Specificially arrogant James Potter. He has been pestering her to go out with him, but she has coldly denied his wishes. She thinks this year will be no different to the past six school years.

But life is full of mistakes.

..::~!~::..

"Just one minute.” Lily noticed footsteps heading in her direction. She saw a hand reach from between the screens and drop a flower onto her bedside table.

“Mr. Potter! Return to your dormitory immediately!”

“Alright, alright…” The hand disappeared.

Once Lily was sure that no one was in the wing, he lifted her head and saw what flower Potter had dropped.

Lily stuffed her head in her pillow and screamed a muffled scream that no one could hear.

Yipee! I finally have time to review! I loved the way you wrote the Griffin. It was brilliant. You made the Griffin a conscious animal which is difficult to do in fics as most authors either make them total vicious animals or sumpremely intelligent humans just trapped in an animal's body. He thought like a human and acted like an animal - a perfect balance. It was about time that someone told Lily that she was trusting the wrong people! I think something went wrong with the end of the fic with the italics everywhere, but that's really the only negative thing. I don't think that your chaters are too short - they keep us wanting more! Can't wait for 25!

I really, REALLY liked this story. It was well written and most of all (VERY IMPORTANT TO ME!) it was true to the characters. Some James and Lily fics are totally off the mark with their personalities so that they're nothing like what JKR depicted them in the Fifth Book. And it was really funny, which is always a plus. Well done!!

 

The Boy Who Lived by Croyez
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 12]

Summary: Nobody knew it at the time, but tonight, history was to be made. Tonight, an event that would change the course of the Wizarding World would take place, and numerous lives would take a turn for the better. It was slight irony that, at the cost of an innocent young boy’s happiness, he who had planned it all out would finally meet his demise.

This one-shot chronicles the details of what happened on that night when The Dark Lord visited Godric's Hollow in order to rid himself of the only boy that held the power to destroy him. Haven't you ever wondered?

That was fantastic!! I really enjoyed the way you depicted Voldemort - cruel and merciless - just as JKR created him. I also liked the way you almost drew a parallel with James' battle and the battle with Harry and Voldemort in GoF - they never gave up, either of them. Finally, the characters really came to life on the computer which means.........this was a BRILLIANT fanfic

Yipee!!! Another Molly and Arthur fic and I'm the first to review!! I really love Molly and Arthur fics. Anyway to your story, I actually kind of like the fact that Arthur is popular and Molly is not. It's an unusual, but good, twist on things. Molly does seem like the studious type that isn't very popular maybe that's why she defended Percy so much.... Though it did surprise me that she fell asleep in History of Magic but maybe that's why she gave out to Ron when he made up the goblin name in GoF. Hmmmm... Artghur seems ready to give up things for her.......except his popularity. Character development perhaps in future chapters? Anyway I've done enough ranting for now so keep up the excellent story and update as soon as you can. Pretty please

Author's Response: thank you so much!! What do you mean by character development? Like, Molly and Arthurs personalities? please tell other people to review! Thanks again!!

Yippee!! Chapter 2 is up!! I’m hoping and presuming that you’ve read HBP (Honestly, what kind of a fan are you if you read Fanfiction before finishing HBP?) but if you haven’t read that then you can’t read my review and you just can’t deny yourself that….LOL When I first read HBP all I could say out loud was “Mollywobbles”!! You could probably use Slughorn in the fic now too. By the way, I agree with the other reviewer about Arthur’s muggle obsession- it should be included…aeroplanes perhaps?(snigger) Anyway, now that the distraction of HBP is out of the way we can concentrate on fan fiction until Book 7.…….Now so onto the review! I liked the way you included the asterixes between Molly and Arthur’s thoughts and the actual idea that Lucy was in Ravenclaw and not Slytherin shows that al teenagers can be cruel-even more so if their intelligent. Also, Arthur’s character seems to have developed into someone more “Gryffindor-like” as he’s finally become brave enough to “give up” Lucy for Molly. Molly still has low self esteem, that can grow into more character development. (I’m big into character development, which I think JKR sidelined in HBP but anyway..) So a good chapter BUT, and yes there is always a but with me, there were some things……….. For starters, Lucy called Molly a “mud blood”… but to keep it canon it really should be a “mud blood lover” because both Molly and Arthur are pureblood as they have pure blood children. Also Molly rants about not letting Lucy coming and talking to her she says {Please don’t talk to me; please don’t talk to me}, that should be in inverted commas. The other “negative” thing I have to say is that I really thought Arthur’s point of view was really very well written BUT since Molly’s point of view began the story it should have developed more and there was no real build up to the climax of the story, i.e. the altercation between Molly and Lucy…. So that’s my opinion once again, I swear I really do never shut up and I’m beginning to have some pity for my family. The offer for me to look over the work still stands. Anyway, keep up the good work and bring chappie 3 up to date soon!

 

The Severed Souls by Magical Maeve
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 274]

Summary: Summary : The sequel to Daughter of Light. Maeve has a very bad end to her honeymoon as things come to light about Severus that astound her. Why is her husband so keen to keep Draco Malfoy alive at all costs and can she really get over her loathing of Narcissa Malfoy to work together to save both Severus and Draco from the fate that Voldemort would like to inflict on them? Why is Harry so furtive and will Neville save the day when Maeve’s necklace is returned to her by her father. Oh, and our favourite bad-boy Auror is back!

There has been rather a long break in the writing of the story due to work commitments, but I'm back on the case and hoping to get it finished - if there's anyone left still reading!! :-)

Go bhfoire dia orainn!! Oh my God.....that was really fast and REALLY good. I was actually wondering what your opinion would be when Severus killed Dumbledore in HBP (I think Dumbledore was pleading to die too....nice to know someone else agrees) Well what to say. I really liked the idea that you are including HBP spoilers but what about the Potions book? And Snape really being a half blood? The fact that his mother was Eileen Prince...?What about the Horcruxes?(Though I think the new title gives that answer away) Enough with the questions(which hopefully will be answered soon-I'm extremely impatient which is quite strange considering how patiently, most of the time, I wait for HP). Anyway, I really liked the way that you've let me (sorry made me) ask myself theses questions which means that this was a great start because now I'm rehooked! And Roderick's back! And a new angle with regards to Severus' past life(or present life)as a death eater. And Narcissa Malfoy..... A great new fic!! P.S. Give us a hint as to what you changed...please?

Author's Response: Sorry to be so long replying but I've been on holiday and only got back late friday! I'm glad I re-hooked you! LOL On my first read of HBP I was devastated and for a while (an hour) considered not writing any more FanFic because I couldn't see a way round Snape being guilty. And then of course I realised that I had just been handed a whole ream of great new material that meant I would get my original story written but add lots more new intrigue at the same time. There will be some things from HBP and some things will be left out... the Potions book, for instance. I have no room... or timescale.. to write that in. But other things will come into play...not least Severus and the Dumbledore issue. Thanks for the review! Chapter two is on its way soon. :-)

Wow... I really liked your style of writing - very precise and well structured. It shows that you thought this fic through due to the accuracy of your plot as it was canon as possible while staying original.(me LOVE canon:-)) You kept your characters true to the magnificent JKR's characters. Dudley was being a spoilt, chocolate guzzling kid, Petunia was uppity and hating of James and Harry was being Harry as we saw him in book one. Also, nice way to include the magical world in the fic, a lot of pre HPstone fics about Harry with the Dursley's seem to completely forget about the wizarding world. Well without further ado I award you a 10 for a fantastic Fic!!!

 

For Padma's Sake by HermioneDancr

Summary: Once, Parvati and Padma shared everything: pain and tears, happiness and laughter. But time has changed them, and now -- as Parvati sits with her sister at the dining table -- she cannot share. She must be strong. For Padma's sake. HBP Spoilers.

Now, my little review seems woefully inadequate in comparison to the other eviews but internet time must be used wisely in my house....4 sisters, one phone line... well you get the drift. Anyway, I really liked this story. I usually don't respond to slightly angsty fics (more of a funny fluff gal myself) but this one really caught my eye. The way you portrayed how the sisters interacted, the way Parvati sacrificed for her sister and didn't seem bitter about it was true to life and real - extremely well written fic. Well done!!

Author's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review! I completely understand about limited internet time... and I happen to know that my other two reviewers for this story are constantly on the internet. They're also SPEW members who are required to write in depth reviews...

It made my day to get another review on this! And such a nice one, too! I'm glad the interaction between the sisters seemed so real. It's something I worried about... I'm an only child, so I have no sibling experience to work from. It's great to hear from someone who has lots of sister experience!

 

Summary: After the fall of Voldemort, an ancient nemesis rears his head against the magical world. This time Harry is not the center of any prophecy, but can he prevent it anyway? Can a battle weary Harry Potter stand up to someone who even Voldemort feared?

Wow, what a fantastically well researched and thought out story!! The storyline with Harry and Merlin is really intriguing and the idea that "yin and yang" need to be maintained in the world is really well done. The plot with Grindlewald is brilliant as I like the biblical references with the four horseman...but the fact that he can see what is happening everywhere eg Emma Jones - that was so sad and creepy!! And if Datyloi (its spelt wrong I know!!) is the weakest - I dont want to see the others!!!

Set and Aryeh is a good idea and I was so glad that the Weasleys are descendents of Merlin - I mean all their names are a dead giveaway!! And Harry is the descendant of Merlin and Rose!! I love the development that Harry is CHOOSING to fight dear old Grindy. The insight about Anguis Muggle - I loved that!! I presume that Nimue is the woman that imprisoned Merlin....

Well done and I look foward to Cahappie 14!!
