Summary: HBP MISSING MOMENT. What happened after Harry and Ginny left the common room after their very public first kiss? Here's my idea of their walk around the lake.
As a general rule, I don't read romance because I don't really like fluff, but this was wonderful! You did an outstanding job and I must commend you on your beautiful writing style. Wow! Definitely going into my faves!
Summary: Harry, Ron, and Hermione make a trip to Godric's Hollow to visit the Potters' graves. There, Harry speaks to his parents for the first time, and in so doing, discovers that the dead are never truly lost. (One-shot. Bring your kleenex.)
That was beautiful...
It made me want to cry...
Summary: James finally asks Lily out. The problem is, he chose a roundabout way of getting to her. Plus, he stands a high risk of breaking his neck in the process. Told from Remus Lupin's POV. Rated 3rd-5th years for slight language and mild innuendo on James's part. One-shot.
A/N: Quick note to all: I am sorry, but there are no plans for a sequel for PC. I hate to disappoint you all, but I feel that the story is better standing alone, leaving the rest to your imaginations.
That was pure genious! Very enjoyable.
Rated: [Reviews - ]
Oh...this is such a good story! I wish you would update it...:)
Summary: Severus has never seen the appeal of repetition, particularly of things that ended badly the first time. In his life, he has kept one pet, owned one broom, and had one close friend.
Winner of Mod Quicksilver Quill for Best Novel! Thanks, all!
Rating and warnings do not apply to all chapters; I just didn't want anyone hooked and then shocked.
This was a brilliant work of fanfiction! I stayed up far past my usual bedtime to read this story. I couldn't get enough. Though I've always rather detested Snape, I think you did a great job with this story. It was definitely intriguing to see things from his POV. I can just picture the young Severus Snape in the way you presented him and I can see how this view of Snape would fit in with what JKR has to say about him. I also think you did a wonderful job describing Lily. You presented her in a way that I've always pictured her. Strong, witty, and kind. And (I know I'm doting a bit) I loved how you presented the four Mauraders. I've always pictured James in just this way. Sirius too. I am very very impressed! Thank you for writing this story!
Author's Response: Sorry to mess with bedtime -- but how flattering! Especially if you usually \'detest\' Severus, poor fellow. He and Lily were both a real experience to write. Thanks for reviewing!
Summary: Sirius was killed by Bellatrix. When he lands headlong at his dead best friend’s feet, he is a little perplexed. All is soon explained, however. He has reached Heaven, and James is here to welcome him. Before he can begin to get used to life in Heaven, he must first “watch his life” on the large screen in front of him, because it will help him understand things better. And so, that’s what he does. From the very beginning, to the very end. You too, can follow him through the ups and downs. Follow him through the highs and the lows. Follow him through the laughter, the pain, and the romance. Follow him through the story of his life. This fic is a tribute to Sirius Black. It is not all marauder-era, although a bulk of it is, and that is why it’s in this category.
I read all 19 chapters of this story in one day and I must say that I am truly impresssed. I truly think you have captured Sirius' character exactly. Very nice! It has been quite interesting to read everything from his point of view. I especially loved the ending to this chapter. Wonderful! Keep it up!!
Author's Response: Thank you very much. I\'m glad you liked it, and I hope you\'ll stick around for the last couple of chapters ...
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.
You are a very good writer. I've enjoyed reading this story. This isn't the stupid meaningless romance dribble that most people come out with on here. Kudos to you!
Author's Response: Err... Cheers! :)
I don\'t know about the stupid meaningless romance dribble, but indeed, this story isn\'t supposed to be one. Thanks for the review.
Summary: This poem is set at the ending of the fifth book. Dumbledore wrestles with himself about whether to tell Harry about the prophecy while he is so distraught from Sirius's death.
Wow! This is a beautiful poem. I think you really captured Dumbledore's inner struggle and his emotions. I especially love the last stanze. That is simply wonderful! You are an amazing writer!
Author's Response: Thank you very much for all your compliments, the last stanza is one of my favorites as well!
Summary: What happens when the Order's most valuable spy loses his memory? Severus Snape fights to survive in a world he can no longer remember and in the process rediscovers the love of his life.
Severus Snape/Original Character.
I love flirtacious!Severus. I'm really enjoying this fic so far. On to Chpater 9! :D
*will leave a more in depth review on a later chapter*
Author's Response: Thanks! I\'m glad you\'re enjoying it so far! : )
Summary: I held your cold body against mine, as I shivered from both shock and grief. You were gone, and I had never even known you. And the skies above us were on fire, on fire with the new dawn, the dawn you would never see. And I cried.
Wow...that was really sad. Well written! Kudos to you!
Summary: Salazar Slytherin has decided to leave Hogwarts forever, for Godric Gryffindor has refused to comply with his demands. What will Salazar do to ensure the preservation of the purity of blood at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry? Will it involve drastic measures, like the awakening of a dreaded monster?
This is an entry for the Fall HWP by Dumbledore Prince of Gryffindor House.
Hello fellow Gryffindor!
Though this review won't sparkle as much as the ones that preceed it, I hope I can be constructive and helpful. :D
First off, I really like the idea of this story. I had never really thought about the circumstances leading to Slytherin placing the basilisk in the Chamger of Secrets and I think you did an excellent job presenting this scenario!
There was only one thing that really bothered me with this story. I think, if Rowena and Salazar were married, that Rowena would have tried much harder to convince him to stay. I also think she would have been a lot more upset. That's just me though and, really, that was the only thing that bothered me. The rest of the story was fantastic!
So, like I said, this review doesn't sparkle like those before it, but I hope you are glad I left it. :D
Author's Response: Thank you for the review, and I don\'t mind the length.
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.
*tear* That was the PERFECT ending! Wow...You are one of the more talented writers on this site! Kudos!
Author's Response: Thank you! That really means a lot to me.
NO!!! Oh dear...poor Harry!!! That's absolutely awful! I practically started crying.
(But was written very well. You are an EXCELLENT writer!)
Author's Response: Sorry about the tear-jerking. If it hadn\'t gotten an emotional response, I guess that would mean I didn\'t write it correctly. Thank you very much for the kind comments, despite your distress. I really do appreciate it.
Summary: One morning, Harry Potter wakes up in a different world. His parents are alive, and Neville now bears the scar. Things are different and Harry finds that he’s starting to like that the weight of the world is no longer on his shoulders. Unfortunately, Neville may not be able to bear that weight, and Harry has to make the decision about whether or not to allow an unprepared Neville to face the Dark Lord and complete the Prophecy, or if he should accept the responsibility again and finish what he set out to do.
Ooo...very intriguing. I like so far.
Wow...this is amazing! Update soon! You have a real knack for writing!
Summary: Albus Dumbledore has defeated the dark wizard Grindelwald and been offered the position of Minster for Magic. Turning down the generous offer, he instead sets out for Hogwarts to return to teaching and begin his new partnership with Nicholas Flamel. Yet something holds him back, and as he takes his time traveling across the countryside leading to Hogsmeade, he comes upon a mysterious inn by the name of the Green Dragon. There he meets several people who help him find his way back home through the fog of reluctance that shadows his journey.
This story was written by Gmariam of Ravenclaw for the New Year’s Challenge.
Ooo...this story is very intriguing. I can't wait to read the next chapter. I was not expecting Riddle or Harry ot come in. Very clever. Keep it up!
Author's Response: Hi! Thank you so much for the great review! I am so happy you liked it. I\'m glad you were somewhat surprised too, it was fun to bring in Tom Riddle and Harry. I\'m working on Harry\'s chapter now. Thanks again for reading this story, and for leaving such a nice review, I really appreciate it! ~Gina :)
Summary: After the Yule Ball, Neville goes back to the Great Hall to retrieve his coat. Instead, he finds Ginny Weasley, dancing with no partner but her sadness.
I really liked this story! I had not often thought of the fact that Neville took Ginny to the Yule Ball and I had never considered the fact that she would have rather been with Harry. (What kind of H/G shipper am I?! *berates self*)
I think you prtrayed Neville really well: stumbling over his words, so unsure of himself. This is Neville in a nutshell. You didn't just potray him as we typically see him though. You showed a new side of Neville that is rarely explored.
After a few minutes, Neville heard her give a little choking sound. He did the only thing he could think of and pulled her into his arms to let her cry on his shoulder. She was a wonderful girl, and he would be there for her, though he would never ask her out. He held her for a long time.
Really gives me a new perspective on Neville. This shows him not as the bumbling, clumsy, idiot, but as a kind, sweet, caring boy who values his friends. I have read very few fics that show Neville in the light he deserves to be in. He is so much more than worthless. Thank you for showing us the Neville within!
Overall, I really enjoyed this story and I hope you continue to write more wonderful stories!
Author's Response: Thank you for your review! Reviews make the world go \'round. I didn\'t see much of this Neville either, until I started writing him. I really got to explore who he is. Just from the books, we\'ve seen a lot of loyalty, intelligence (maybe not in Potions, but that doesn\'t mean he\'s stupid), sensitivity, courage, and caring. This was an interesting story in that -- since it was a songfic -- I knew what would happen, but not the details. I felt a bit like I had walked Neville down to the Great Hall and let him go. All those abovementioned qualities just sort of came pouring out. Again, thanks so much for reviewing! *self-promotion alert* If you really liked this Neville, I suggest checking out a few of my other fics. I have several Neville-based ones now; I really like how they all turned out.
Summary: Harry and Ginny can't make it throught the war for peace, but is it all bad? Harry's pov
We brought each other to such great heights,
And all we left behind were silhouettes...
*sigh* That was very beautiful! You really conveyed alot of emotion into that poem. I especially liked the last stanza. Very well written! I must say though...I don't much like the idea of Harry and Ginny splitting up. *cries* That's my OTP you're messing up there. ;). hehe. Just kidding. Very well done! Kudos to you!
=D thanks, sorry I\'m breaking up your OTP though.
Summary: ‘Pet snakes, three-headed dogs, rivalries and secrets. This is where it all started, and I was caught in the line of fire... or rather, I was the one who lit the match and caused the blaze. Funny how life can change completely in an instant. This is an account of the end of my life as I once knew it.’
Eighty years after Hogwarts is founded, Gryffindor’s friendship with Slytherin seems on the brink of falling apart. Meanwhile, young Aramis Selby endeavours to discover the Parseltongue’s secrets. What he finds will change Hogwarts for ever. But his interfering may seal his own fate...
‘Two-shot’, slightly angsty, I’d say. Let me know what you think. 3-5yrs,
Wow. This was very well done! You are a very talented writer. Can't wait to read the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thank you, I\'m glad you enjoyed it :)
Summary: “You sing to me every night that heaven is somewhere over the rainbow. Granddad told me today, when I asked him, that heaven is after the stars. Everybody tells me that’s where my father is and…I miss him. I wish I could be with him. And if that means being a million light years away from earth, then that’s how far I want to be.”
Harry's family is missing him. A heart-wrenching conversation between Ginny and her fatherless daughter.
Nominated for a Quicksilver Quill for Best Dark/Angst. Thank you!
Wow...that was beautiful. You made me cry as well. That had such depth...such emotion...just wow...
Author's Response: sorry you cried. But I am glad you liked it.
