Well, a little bit about myself: I'm a male, heterosexual, college student in Florida and for the record that's one sentence I never thought I would say lol.
I'm currently writing a 7th year fic entitled Harry Potter and the Serpent's Eye. I've got most of it outlined and it's looking like its going to be a pretty long one lol. Between 125,000 and 175,000 words at the current pace if anyone was interested in the length.
Harry Potter and the Serpent's Eye Update - 05/07
Hey all, I'm back from college and I'll be at home for the summer so it's time to start updating again. I'm sorry for keeping you all waiting for so long and hopefully you'll want to keep reading now that I've started up again. The next chapter should be done shortly and then I'll upload it, so be looking for it in the next couple of weeks!!!
Finally, I'd like to thank everyone who has reviewed - I really appreciate it and I'd also like to thank my betas, LucyLupin and Priya, who both have done spectacular jobs with this story. I couldn't do it without you - love ya, both!
Summary: Remus Lupin is a man with a tragic past, filled with pain, suffering and sorrow. But it is also a past filled with great adventure, true friendship and…love? Even though the odds were against him, Remus found happiness at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He had the Marauders, he was a prefect and his transformations were less horrible, thanks to his Animagi friends. What more could a teenage werewolf want? And how long could his happiness last? Remus and the Marauders prove that in the saddest of lives and darkest of times, there can still be moments of bliss.
Remus centric but with a lot of the other Marauders. This story is a romance, but has almost as much general Marauder era background and side story as romance.
Pre-HBP and DH, so some things from DH will be disregarded, as the warning indicates, but some Spoilers will be incorporated.
Very good chapter! I liked it a lot!
“You really don’t have to resort to choking me. You can grab me anytime you want.” - very very funny =)
All in all another great chapter. I can't wait for the next one.
Author's Response: Thank you, Marauder9744. I\'m really glad you enjoyed it. I\'m glad you liked that from James. I always worry that I\'ll make him an idiot instead of just the showing off for Lily. I guess he might have seemed an idiot, but if you thought it was funny, and not annoying, I guess that\'s a good sign. So thanks! :)
Great job, moonymaniac! I really really like it! The Be-Ready-For-Romance Kit was hilarious :) But I am starting to get the feeling that when Remus finally does tell Lindi, she is going to be more upset that he didn't tell her sooner than about him actually being a werewolf. And I'm also going out on a limb *wink wink* that however she finds out, it probably won't go over too well. All in all another amazing chapter! Oh, and by the way, I think I too will have to go after Greyback if he hurts Lindi ;)
Author's Response: Thanks, Marauder9744! Glad to know you got a kick out of that gift. I worry about things like that (for fear I\'m being ridiculous) so it is always so nice to hear that it works for someone. :) <.< *Silently watches Marauder out on the limb and wonders how long he\'ll be out there before he finally finds out it the limb is sturdy* I\'ll try not to keep you hanging out there too terribly long. ;) LOL Aww...you\'d do that for Lindi? That\'s so cool! :) Thank you. :)
Great chapter, I really liked it! I really hope that when Remus finally does tell Lindi that he's a werewolf she'll accept it - but that wouldn't make a very good story would it ;) Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Thank you, Marauder9744. I\'m very glad you liked it. So, you don\'t think that would be good for the story? What, you want conflict or something? You want me to make Remus suffer more than he does? <.< But I try so hard to be nice! *looks angelic* >.> :-D Thanks again, Marauder. I will certainly try.
Great chapter... as always! Everyone acted almost exactly as I imagined they would and I think Remus' dad is exactly right in his advice.
All in all another awesome chapter. Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: I\'m so glad to hear it, Marauder9744 (especially coming from a guy) ;) I was more worried in this one about how the characters related to each other (as guys) than I have been in any of the others. *considers need for male beta to check Marauders’ behavior* ;) It\'s easy to write them being rude, crude and flippant, (LOL No offense to my male readers! I love rude and flip Marauders! Honestly!) but to have them discussing something serious made me more nervous about getting them right, so thanks for that. *shuts up before she offends anyone* LOL But I am very happy and relieved that you liked the chapter. Thanks!
Wow! You must get tired of hearing that. This is an incredible story... I really enjoy it! Remus has always always been my favorite character and the way you've written him, as well as the other marauders, is so, well - perfect lol. And by the way, being a guy, if Lindi was a real person I would definatly be fighting Remus for her lol. Sorry for the long review but you deserved it. Great fic!
Author's Response: *big grin* Never! I could never get tired of it. Thank you so much for the wonderful comments, especially on Lindi. You absolutely made my day! Being a girl, if you were here, I\'d kiss you! LOL Thanks so much for the wonderful review! I really appreciate it.
Summary: This is an alternate version of Book Seven. Harry reluctantly returns to Hogwarts to train with a new DADA teacher, one appointed in specifically for Harry in Dumbledore's will. As the rest of the Wizard World reacts to Dumbledore's defeat, Harry develops the skills he needs to fulfill the Prophecy--including mastery of the Kedavra curse.
Mysteries are explored along the way, particularly the "missing 24 hours" from 1981--the span of time between Hagrid taking Baby Harry from the ruins of Godric's Hollow on Halloween Night, and his arrival to hand off Baby Harry on Privet Drive the following night. The Veil Room in the Department of Mysteries is also revisited. A traitor is uncovered, and Dumbledore's wisdom comes into question. And even when all goes as planned, things are not all they seem.
Really great... I love your writing style! I can't wait to read more - keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Thanks! Enjoy!
