I'm in my 50's and I have read all 5 Harry Potter books (anxiously awaiting Number 6), and seen all the films several times. I also LOVE to read (JKR, Anne Rice, Tolkien, Robin Cook, Stephen King, Michael Crichton, Tom Clancy, just to name a few). I like computer role-playing games of the AD&D genre where I like to play the role of a magic-user.
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. :-)
You did a wonderful job with this story! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and can't wait to see what else you have in store.
Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed the story so far and thank you for taking the time to review... it is very much appreciated. And yes, I did rather enjoy it when she dumped Draco in the rubbish bin. :-)
Excellent as always! I'm curious about Roderick, and why Filch was making his remarks about Roderick! Please update soon!
Author's Response: Thank you! The next chapter has been submitted and it's waiting for validation so hopefully you won't have too long to wait.
Brilliant!! Will Alice finally start to recover?
Author's Response: Good question....I'm not sure of the answer to that one yet!
Brilliant!! The way Professor Selene Lupin dealt with Draco was exactly what he deserved, and I am glad she did not back down when Snape returned with Draco and made him get Draco out of the classroom!! Keep up the good work!
Excellent! Let's hope they get a solution to the threat that Voldemort is planning!
Author's Response: Fingers crossed! :-)
Your story is excellent so far! Please add more!
Author's Response: Thank you for continuing to review HarrysAunt...it's so encouraging to know people are still reading. :-)
Wonderful job! I could feel the sadness everyone was feeling. Even Snape showed some compassion. Keep writing!

Good story so far! I hope that was Sirius speaking to Peter!. I hope he makes Peter pay big time for his evilness. Please update.

I think I'm going on a better track this time...so wish me luck...I'm sorry for the delay. ~Ashley

This story is great so far. I hope you will be able to update soon. I would so love to see the Malfoys get what they really deserve....Lifetime imprisonment in Azkaban or a trip to the Moon without a rocket...that goes for all three Malfoys!
Author's Response: Hiya HarrysAunt Im glad someone like me is getting fed up how the Malfoys get away with murder. (Time for the worm to turn I think! lol) Tanks for the wonderful review. All the best Wiganlad.
Very good story!
Great story! However, please watch the spelling. I'm looking forward to your next update.
Author's Response: Hiya HarrysAunt Thank you for your review and I'm pleased you have enjoyed the story so far. Could you e-mail me with the spelling mistakes as I thought I had checked them? All the best Wiganlad.
Summary: This story has been posted on several sites dedicated to the pairing of Hermione and Severus Snape. She is 22 in this story, and there was no relationship between the two while she was a student. If this pairing bothers you, please don't read.
Ron's punishment was hilarious!! Poor guy, I hope he learned not to cross Hermione again! Great!
Author's Response: Thanks. I got some flack from a few people on another site who said he didn't deserve that, but I think he did. Hermione almost lost the love of her life because of his petty childish games. I'm glad you liked this story. Thank you for reading.

I like it so far. I'm looking forward to future updates, as I'm curious as to what happened with Harry during the weeks prior to his meeting with Charlie and "Norbert".
Summary: Giving high school essays a Marauder twist, this fiction is centered around the idea that some seniors in high school are require to write a letter to incoming freshman before they graduate. At Hogwarts, Seventh Years are given an assignment to write such a letter for the new First Years. Sirius decides to actually take an assignment, well seriously...sort of. He decides to look back on his entire Hogwarts years and write down his list of things not to do at Hogwarts.
Second request! Please update soon!
Author's Response: Yes ma'am!
I never had to write a letter to the freshmen when I was a senior in high school many years ago, but I can still remember all the pranks I used to pull and not get caught! I loved this story and hope you add more real soon! You get a 10+ on this one!
Author's Response: Really? You never did? I guess I was just the "lucky" one. Hehe, thank you!
