Death Be Not Proud... by Magical Maeve
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 13]

Summary: Okay, this is a strange one. I finished Daughter Of Light yesterday and decided to start my big edit of the whole fic. As I was working on chapter three this scene popped into my head. It is Maeve and Severus' death. I had to write it, just because the idea wouldn't leave me alone, so here it is. It's what could happen in a hundred years or so... so don't get too traumatised. :-)

Awwwwwwwww!!!! I just found this, having in the past week devoured both Daughter of Light and Severed Souls. I LOVE Maeve, and what you have done with Snape in these stories. More, more, more please :-)


Imperius by Pallas
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 482]

Summary: “Imperius… Werewolves…You-Know-Who…” The last words of a dying man force Remus Lupin into a dangerous investigation at the infamous Feral Institute. Sequel to Oblivious; pre-reading would be useful but it isn’t vital.

You are, simply, the best writer of fan fiction on this site. I have greatly enjoyed ALL your work....and you have me on tenderhooks now for the next chapter!!!

Aargh! I am soooo hooked into your Remus tales and am about to turn myself inside out with these cliffhangers of yours! Why are you reading this review when you NEED to be writing more of this exciting tale?! ;-)

I love your work! Your writing is why I got hooked on fan fiction. But I, too, am confused by what exactly Tonks did with that last curse. Is Remus now dead?

Good! I hereby note that I am IGNORING what Jo wrote in book 7 and sticking to THIS tale as the real and true tale of Tonks and Remus!

I am doing a mental happy dance for them both! Thanks for a great story.

Ah, you got me! I fell for it!
This is a most interesting chapter - hurry up and post the next one!

Author's Response: I\'m sorry the next one has taken so long. I got sick for about two weeks and I still had to work and take care of school, so this got shifted down on my priorities list, which sucks, because I wanted to do this more than most of the other things I had to do. I\'m glad you liked the chapter!

Yup - I am 40 miles n/w of Chicago myself, and very eager to learn WHERE this wizarding school is located (please be in Elgin ;-)

My almost 11-yr-old daughter has been INSISTING that an owl will arrive with a letter once she turns 11. Gee, I am glad to know that she can attend a school close to home :-)

Might I also add that I am enjoying your writing, esp. Ron on an airplane! Poor Ron!

Author's Response: i don\'t think we ever say exactly where the school is. kinda like hogwarts; you have to keep it hidden. ;) you enjoy our writing? YAY! thanks so much! writing ron on the airplane was a lot of fun. i\'m glad you like it.


Never Alone by ckwright51
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 426]

Their plan not to return to Hogwarts is changed with the reading of Dumbledore’s will. Harry must discover that his friends are a greater help then he can imagine and how to use the “Power the Dark Lord knows not.” With a little romance, action, mystery and even Quidditch along the way, Harry will find out if he and his friends can defeat the greatest Dark Wizard of the age.

This story was completely written before the release of DH or the Order of the Phoenix movie. Any similarities are entirely coincidental.

Great chapter - did Snape leave that memory in a vial on purpose? Good for Neville, fighting off a werewolf! And I loved that little exchange Harry had with Voldemort at the end! I eagerly await more chapter!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. It\'s nice to see Neville coming into his own. If you havn\'t noticed I sort of have a soft spot for him, as a character so he is having a better far. As for Snape, I\'m afraid you will have to wait and see. I loved writing the end of the chapter. Harry is getting stronger. Thanks again take Care and Enjoy DH when it comes out.


A Past Reclaimed by nuw255
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 1455]

Summary: Sequel to A Stolen Past. Please read that story first, as this one really won’t make sense if you don’t.

Harry Potter has rejoined the Wizarding world after a year-long absence, but still has no memory of his time at Hogwarts. Will he ever get his memory back? Will he be able to pass his classes without it? And most importantly, will he ever be able to defeat Lord Voldemort? Read on as the last of the mysteries introduced in A Stolen Past are finally revealed.

This is a story of friendship and mystery, with a healthy dose of H/G thrown in for good measure.

Oh, I DO like that Luna is proven correct about the Snorkacks! Points to you and your house for a fun continuation of a great story!

Author's Response: Thank you! I really enjoyed making Hagrid act as if it should be taken for granted that Snorkacks are real because they\'re always being talked about in the Quibbler. Hehe! Anyway, thanks for reviewing, and I\'m glad you liked it!

Ah, poor Snape. You really caught poor teenage Snape, methinks. Like having Lily be the brains behind the bezoar treat! I look forward to reading more!

Author's Response: It\'s been fun writing Shy!Severus, he changes later though, as he becomes older and holds a grudge. Thanks for the review!

Oh, I liked this short story! Glad to think someone cold make Remus Lupin see reason - perfect that it should be Hermione! You channeled Hermione very well, too - really felt like I was in her head!

Author's Response: Thank you! I\'ve mentioned before, often, that being IC is the best compliment I can be given. This story sprung from the logical thought that Remus and Tonks had been through the same argument a million times so something different must have happen the paticular night. So then Hermione waltzted in and practically wrote the stry for me ;D

Author's Response: I mean \"story.\" Typo Queen strikes again!

Of Christmas Past by Chaser921
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 542]

Summary: Harry, Ron, Hermione and Ginny find themselves in a Muggle hotel in Godric's Hollow on the Winter Solstice. During an enthusiastic snowball fight, Harry and Ginny step through a stone circle that transports them seventeen years into the past. This may be the only chance Harry has to spend with his parents, and it may also be what he needs to figure out his relationship with Ginny.

The warning is for later chapters.

Edit: So, this was originally strictly a Harry/Ginny fic, but Ron and Hermione kept trying to get together too, so I felt like I had to change the category. And there's a bit of Lily/James in there too, though they're already married, and I've also added a bit of Remus/Tonks. Poor Sirius is the only Singleton (though he may manage to get a girl of his own)!

Edit: This story was cannon until after Deathly Hallows came out, so I changed it to Alternate Universe, but it's still pretty close to cannon. Only a few things will end up being different when the story ends.

Edit: I've changed all of the chapter titles to the titles of Christmas songs that I felt reflected the events in the chapters best. Tell me what you think! Does it fit?

Is English not your first language? Many errors in grammar and spelling mar what might otherwise have been an enjoyable tale.

Author's Response: Yup. English isn\'t my first language. But I\'ll try to be more careful with grammar and spelling next time. Really it has that much spelling errors? I guess that when you read your own story, you don\'t find the errors.


Summary: Well... it's high time that I did something so completely insane that the wizards in white robes dragged me off to the closed ward in St. Mungo's.

So, I spoofed the entire album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" by the Beatles, to be performed by your favourite Dark Lord and choice Death Eaters in the style of a rock opera. Eat your lonely hearts out!

I don't recommend this fic to those who are not at all familiar with the Beatles.
