wow.. that was really interesting. i know this is the least of everything, but i think you never wrote hermione's name, which is a more creative twist. the ending took me by surprise, as i'm sure you had wanted.. this is a one-shot, right? if so, that ending made for one hell of a one-shot! (er, i can say hell right? :D ) i liked this one.

Author's Response: I\'m thrilled you liked it! I never meant to not write out her name, I just started out that way and then kind of liked the idea of the readers having to guess and find out who everyone is. Yes, it is meant as a one-shot, thank you for the praise! =P Thanks for stopping by and for leaving such a nice review!

 

Summary:



What do you do when the man who murdered your best friend turns up and claims to be innocent?




What do you do when you realise you slowly start trusting him again?




What do you do when you fall in love against your will – with a man half your age?





This is a McGonagall/Snape fic about trust, friendship, shame, and love. It’s canon compliant otherwise; set immediately after HBP except for a mini prologue.




This fic also is my attempt at continuing the at Book 7, so you also have the war against Voldemort, the search for the Horcruxces, and the way they run Hogwarts during that year included in the plot.




Side characters like Ron, Hermione, Moody, Lupin, Tonks, Neville, Augusta Longbottom, Draco, Hagrid, and the rest of the Weasleys get their fair share of the story.




It is done novel style, which means that some apparently minor issues mentioned in early chapters will become important in later chapters. I do recommend you read them in the right order.




To be on the safe side, I rated this “Professors” because it contains violence, sexuality, character deaths, and torture - although none of them described in detail.




Also I now have added an AU warning - my story contains two detals that we will not see happening in "Deathly Hallows". I made the Sorting Hat a Horcrux, and Arthur Weasley will become interim Minister for Magic in my last chapter. Well, I wrote this before those rumors were shot down as non-canon by JKR, and I'd not like to change my plot now - so, sadly, my story has become a bit AU. You have been warned ;-)

this promises to be quite interesting. i'm already becoming absorbed in this story and i look forward to the next chapter.
the interactions between characters are done well, as is writing from the backseat of mcgonagall's mind, a POV i rarely see.

Author's Response: Thank you, I hope you will like the rest of the story as well. I am glad you like the Minerva POV.. you\'re so right, hardly anyone picks her as the main character. I hope you will also like the rest of the character interactions, I\'ll take Minerva and Snape to a relationship quite unusual... Thanks for reviewing!

that's so sweet! and i llike the "truth" about fred and george's invention; it was a good touch that really made the story.

Author's Response: Thanks! I\'m glad you enjoyed it.

 

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.

all i have to say is: ahahaha awesome
(no end punctuation necessary)
the lyrical witticisms are wittier lyricisms!
(and that was my attempt at being clever for the day, sorry you had to be subjected to it!)

Author's Response: Actually, I thought that was fairly clever. Reviews like these make me happy!

Easier Said Than Done by SpikyBlackQuill
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 61]

Summary:

It started as a rant: I was tired of the re-occurance of cliches in fan-fictions. But then realization dawned on me: Was it possible to write a story entirely in figures of speech?





Combine a new author, a book of cliches, and hours to kill. The result is comical blend of Easter Bunnies, out-of-character moments, and sixty-seven cliches.





One-shot

sidewalk pizza! i'll have to keep that one on hand... :)

Author's Response: It certainly is a lovely cliche, even though it does not pertain to death at all, but to puking (I\'m so mature).

that was intense. but a really interesting concept and horrifyingly justifying to see in my mind. [but another part of me smiles and says "that's how we win the war! with lifelike masks! we'll make the death eaters cry themselves to death!"] but yes. a poetic oneshot.

A small warning, this story terrified me (and my beta) and made me cry. Read it with caution but please read it.

creepy as hell. and insane-harry stories make me sad inside, forcing me to realize that there are people who have been screwed up entirely because of something they were born into / through no fault of their own.
and the ending really makes the story "too."

Author's Response: Thank you for reading and reviewing this. I saw that I had a review before I saw that it had been validated. This story creeped me out too because the little girl belongs to me for real. She recently went through a terrible ordeal (her brothers fault) and had nightmares afterwards. For some reason this story just popped into my head afterward.

 

Waiting for the End by mizzie
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 8]

Summary: Harry talks about the things that happened before the Final Battle, especially the time right before while thirteen students waited for news of when to leave for the battle. They all get their turn to say something - anything - that means something to them. There is tragedy, romance, and even a little humour to hold them over as they wait for the battle to begin.

That was quite possibly more beautiful than you can imagine. And you wrote the thing. I can't say I was moved to tears, but very little I read can do that to me (eh, well, except maybe Dumbledore dying.. XD), and I would say that this came close enough. And what made this writing even better is that you did not even have to tell about the battle; the story was all right here.

Author's Response: Thanks so much for the review! I\'m really glad you liked it. =D Mizzie.

 

Oh No, Nott Again! by Schmerg_The_Impaler
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 39]

Summary: Our boy Theodore Nott thinks he’s signed up for a position in the Department of Mysteries. Little does he know that he’s been roped into something a bit more… deathly.

Rollicking fun, dry commentary, suspense, and heavy doses of surrealism with the Grim Reaper and company, including a surprise guest at the end. Written for the Gauntlet challenge by Schmerg_The_Impaler of the grand house of Hufflepuff.

Technically a companion piece to “To Be Or Nott To Be,” but who’s counting? It also stands on its own just as well.


Looks like the judges got drunk again, because they were insane enough to give this story Second Place in the gauntlet. Somewhere, all the famous dead writers are rolling over in their graves, but I, for one, am feeling very squeeful at this undeserved reward! Thanks, judges!

i really enjoyed this... as much as it doesn't make sense for me to say this, it made sense, and there was definitely a feel of the elusive unity sought by many a short-story-writing hopeful.

Author's Response: Ohh, thank you! I always really appreciate your reviews, insanitea.
