Summary: The reign of Voldermort comes to an end, and with it ends the prestige and power Lucius Malfoy once had in the Wizarding World. In order to regain the respect of his fellow wizards and to make them believe that he has turned over a new leaf (which he actually hasn't) and has graciously accepted muggles and Mudbloods, Lucius asks Hermione, a Mudblood, to marry his son, Draco, a pure-blood. Obviously, they both refuse, but Lucius isn't going to give up easily. After all, he wants his status back. He still has a few tricks up his sleeve and is determined to play match-maker. What happens next is a series of events that serve only to bring Hermione and Draco closer, both literally and figuratively speaking. Read to find out how this one unseemly proposal causes absolute chaos in their lives! THIS STORY IS NOT HBP and DH COMPATIBLE! Hey all! Check out my personal info for the expected date of the next update. =)
Great chapter!!! I really love when Hermione and Draco get along! I thought the part with Lucius was hilarious! Keep up the good work. Update soon!
Oh my gosh! Purely evil ending! This chapter sure had a lot of action in it. Wonderful job. Hope you update soon!
Summary: Damaged by the war, Harry flees everything that used to be familiar to him and instead roams the night, haunted by unsolvable questions -- what truly killed Voldemort? And what lurks in the Forbidden Forest, where the trees seem alive?
As his investigation progresses, everything Harry has learnt is called into question as he discovers the most jealously kept secret of the Wizarding civilisation.
Wow, that was absolutely amazing! The wait was definately worth it. I really love this story. Hope you update soon!
Author's Response: Second part of the chapter is in the queue. Thanks for the review, I\'m happy you like the story!
Rated: [Reviews - ]
Oh please update soon! This story is amazing and really different from any other. It's an amazing storyline and I can't wait to see what happens next! You've captured my attention the whole time! Great job.
Summary: Harry is struggling to come to terms with the loss of the closest parental figure in his life, and the latest of his years has left him lonely and distrustful. But he needs to learn to reach out to others if he’s going to defeat Voldemort and live to tell the tale, and he needs someone strong there to help him. Who? His new guardian, Albus Dumbledore.
Between normal stress, the papers filled with Voldemort’s attacks, duelling training and a mysterious illness creating wounds from magic, Harry’s year is proving to be just as difficult as, if not more than, the last one. This time, however, he has his new guardian with him all the way. But will it be enough when faced with their most difficult task yet?

Neat! You are such a great writer. I was really into the story. This held my attention the whole way through. I hope you update quickly! I can't wait to see what happens next.
Author's Response: EaGL is temporarily on hold until the first two chapters are beta’d, then they will be submitted as they get beta’d - provided I remember to :-) In the meantime I have the first two chapters on another story in the validation queue.
Summary: Ten years have elapsed since Dumbledore's death and McGonagall has Hogwarts back on its feet again. Hermione and Malfoy both teach at the school. But when a new teacher is hired to teach Defense Against the Dark Arts, everyone seems to feel that they've met him before. A story of mystery, passion, friendship, and jealousy… not to mention that Harry Potter has been missing for ten years and Voldemort is dead. (All violence is mild).

Thank you to all my reviewers!!!

Interesting chapter! I have to say Malfoy is terrible at sneaking around. Him doing the dishes and ordering the drawers was hilarious! This is such a great story. I really do hope you update soon!
Author's Response: I\'m thrilled you enjoy my writing!!! I hope I update soon too!
Why oh why did you have to stop there. Ugh. Now I'll have to wait ages to see what he was going to say. Sigh. Anyway, fantastic chapter. I truly wonder what Harry is thinking and I'm still wondering about what happened to him before he came back. Hope for more soon!
Author's Response: Haha, "Now I'll have to wait ages to see what he was going to say." You know my updating schedule well, I see. It is a shame that my life has been so hectic since I've been writing this. I'll try to get Chapter 11 up soon!
I can honestly say I enjoyed that chapter immensely. It was simply amazing. I loved the Everett/Hermione staring going on, whether it was into the fireplace (Everett's case) or directed at Everett (Hermione's case). I really do hope you update soon! You've got me hooked on this wonderful plot.
Author's Response: Yay! Hooked another =) And yes, the next update should be within the week. Thanks for the feedback!
Well done!!!! This story is really amazing. Harry gives so many hints about the past and who he is. I hope Hermione figures it out soon. I love when those two are together! And I wonder what happened to Harry! He has no feeling?!? Hhmmm... Well, great job and I can't wait for the next update.
Author's Response: I like that you picked up on the no feeling of his cheek part! =) Thanks for the review!
Wow this is amazing! So emotional and beautifully written. Please don't give up on this story. Hope you update soon!
Author's Response: i\'m not giving up on it =) and thank you for all the compliments!
The whole world has gone crazy, tipped on its side, changes happening so quickly that Harry can’t keep track of them all. He isn’t at the centre of it anymore – he’s drifting peacefully somewhere on the very outer rim, and he likes it this way, and he never wants to go back.
He has a dream one night. Soft hands lift him out of his bed. He opens his eyes and their faces are like maps of a country he’s never been to but has always wanted to go. They say they’ll take him to a place where all he has to is breathe.
He says okay.
After Voldemort's defeat, Harry struggles to come to terms with love, death, and the end of innocence. One-shot. Rated for very, very mild sexual implications.
Wow. Just wow. That was absolutely beautiful. I've never read anything like it. Thank you so much for sharing this with us. Your writing style rivals the top authors of this world. Actually I'd say your writing is better than any book I've read. I hope you plan to write more stories for us someday!
Author's Response: Wow, thank you very much, that\'s a huge compliment. I definitely plan to write more; I just finished a novel-length fanfic about Regulus Black that I\'m planning to post soon.
