Summary: When war brings grief, loss, and a world to rebuild, who can speak of a winning and a losing side? Eight young wizards deal with love, jobs and family ties, and, amidst the hardships, try to make a better future for themselves. H/G, R/Hr and other pairings.
This is turning out to be a very nice, well written story. Keep up the good work.
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m glad you like it :)
Woah. That gave me the chills. Let me just day that you write so beautifully and this is by far the best post-Hogwarts fan fic I've read so far. Update soon!
Summary: James and Lily Potter, the most famous Wizarding couple of all time. How did they end up together? Well, it all begins after the very scene which made their son question their very union...
Join us with a story of loyalty, drama, action, love, Death Eaters, and magic in the truest sense of the word. Begin at the end of Lily and James' fifth year, and finish with the end of their seventh year, and relish the journey they took to get from the former to the latter.
This is really good so far! Keep it up!
Summary: Some say to follow your heart, others think it best to follow your head. And what does Ginny Weasley believe? A short history of Ginny Weasley and how she learned to follow the twinge, from her first kiss to the day when Harry almost died. *one-shot*
This story is just as wonderful as I thought it would be. The way Ginny feels throughout - it's just perfect.
“Harry Potter is dead.”
Her mind stopped thinking, her body stopped moving, perhaps she even stopped breathing, and her heart stopped beating.
I can just feel for her. It made me want to cry.
Another beautiful story. Well done
Author's Response: Thank you very much; I\'m glad I was able to make you really feel what for Ginny.
Author's Response: Feel what for Ginny. Boy, I\'m a clever child. ;)
Summary: The hunt for Sirius Black is not going well. Two years after his mysterious escape from Hogwarts, Kingsley Shacklebolt is no closer to finding the infamous murderer, and to top it all, rumors of Voldemort's return are seeping through the Ministry. So when Mad-Eye Moody offers him a chance to join the Order of the Phoenix, Kingsley is more than glad to accept...until he meets someone unexpected at headquarters.
A fic about Kingsley. This is a first for me, and it's very well written. I always like hearing the point of view of slightly minor characters.
Summary: Hermione reflects on her relationship with Ron, beginning with his walking out in DH.
Awwww! What a beautiful story!
Author's Response: Thanks so so much! I\'m glad someone else enjoyed the fruits of my labor :D
Summary: Its Christmas eve in a small valley outside of London and it would be perfect with the exception of one very important person who has gone missing. How will the others react when this person returns? With tears? Anger? Or even happiness? Watch what happens between Ron, Hermione, Harry, Ginny, and baby James this Christmas. This heart wrenching story will have you reading to the last word.

Christmas Wishes is a one shot for the by the fireside prompt for WTC.
Beautifully written and touching. I loved it.
Author's Response: Thank you! Im glade you enjoyed it!
It was like a wizard tale. The clever Slytherin helps a hag who later repays the debt. Except that Rose Weasley wasn't a hag, and Scorpius didn't expect to call in the favour.

Don't worry kerichi, you can keep this story going for as looooong as you want. I promise I won't complain :)
Author's Response: I'm fighting the urge to squeeze you. :D Ta, Thanks!
Summary: “Muggle-born, eh?” said the first man.
“Not sure,” said Dean. “My dad left my mum when I was a kid. I’ve got no proof he was a wizard, though.” **
Dean Thomas’ life is a mess. While the Trio were Horcrux-hunting and the Gryffindors were reforming Dumbledore’s Army, he was on the run. Living on his wits, he paired up with Ted Tonks, only to see him killed by Death Eaters.
He spent a year away from Hogwarts dreaming of a day he could return, but as September 1st 1998 approaches, he realises he cannot go back.
There are things he needs to do and a past he needs to discover before he can move on.
** indicates a line taken from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - The Goblin's Revenge.
I like hearing Dean's side of things. Very interesting; please update soon!
Author's Response: Thank you. I will update fairly soon, once I've got some other things out of the way. Glad you're enjoying it. ~Carole~
Summary: Despite their best efforts, the word "wait" is always in the vocabulary of Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley. Kicking off after the final battle is done and Voldemort is gone, this is how Harry and Ginny sent "wait" to the wayside. *one-shot*
Absolute perfection. Best H/G fic I've read by far. And I loved that it was a oneshot, but part of me still wants more!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'm glad you liked it. I could have easily split it into chapters, but I thought it was best all in one. :)
Summary: It was a brand new day in a brand new world, and Harry Potter, just like the rest of the Wizarding World, didn't know how to begin living life again. This, above all, is his story. A story of rebuilding. H/G, R/Hr.
What a relief! A post-Hogwarts story that doesn't begin with Harry making out with Ginny at the first possible second and tells what would realistically happen! I love how Harry's first thought is of his hunger. So real. I'm favoriting this story, so you'd best keep up the good work and update soon!
Summary: A normal afternoon turns into a odd one for the Trio when a random boy shows up, a character who is convinced he is an authentic British lad. He is sadly mistaken.
Bloody brilliant, mate! ;)
Author's Response: Thank you :)
Have you ever thought about those moments that really defined your life? The ones that were pivotal, life-altering? They can be as obvious as your wedding day, as defining as the birth of your child...or as small as a moment in time, as subtle as a glance between one person and another.
The greatest moments of our lives can sometimes be the shortest and simplest of them all.
A missing moment from the Half-Blood Prince and part of the "Moments" series.
I love missing moments stories, and I would have to say that this one is one of my favorites. I was irked that Harry and Ginny's relationship lasted a whole 3 pages in HBP but your story helps make up for that a little :) I also loved the 2nd person POV, very unique and well done.
Author's Response: I love missing moments as well, if you didn't guess. :) Thank you so much for reading and reviewing!
Summary: “Guilt brings people together. It’s a takes one to know one type thing.”
James Potter has always been a spoiled, arrogant, lazy show-off. When he enters his final year at Hogwarts School, he’s Head Boy . . . and he’s still a spoiled, arrogant, lazy, show-off. But because of that terrible summer, he’s also guilt-ridden.
Lily Evans has always been a self-righteous, impatient, temperamental know-it-all. When she begins her last year at Hogwarts, she’s Head Girl . . . and still a self-righteous, impatient, temperamental know-it-all. But the first night back — and the murder that takes the entire school by surprise — leave her guilt-ridden as well.
With the darkness that’s surrounding the Wizarding world slowly seeping, at long last, onto the grounds of Hogwarts and into the lives of James Potter and Lily Evans, what comes next?
hmmm.... Veriteserum perhaps? Whatever it is, it keeps me in suspense for the next few chapters! Can't wait for the Hogsmeade scene!
Author's Response: That's an interesting guess. I'm glad you're excited! I've finished writing that scene and I can't wait to post it :) Thanks for the review!
Ah, you and your skinny dipping....
I don't think I've ever encountered a drunk Lily before. It was quite embarrasing when I laughed out loud because my roommate wanted to know what was so funny... I told her she should read for herself :) Keep up the good work, I think this is starting to become one of my fav. Lily/ James stories by you; the characters seem more real somehow. (Not that they weren't good before, of course!)
Author's Response: Haha, thanks very much! Fond as I am of my baby Someone To Watch Over Me and my other Lily/James stories, my big goal for this story was to have Lily and James as realistic as possible. I'm glad you think I've done a good job of it so far! I don't think I've ever read a drunk Lily before, either, though I've read a few drunk!James ones.
Summary: "Ron . . . it was never Harry. It was always you. It was ever only you. Just you."
It's been two months since Ron and Hermione shared their first kiss. Now they're facing another first: their first date. *one-shot*
That was so adorable. Please write more Rpn/Hermione fics like this please!
Author's Response: I'm glad you thought so! Thanks for the review :)
Summary: This fic is a series of missing moments from the time H/R&H were at Shell Cottage, beginning immediately after they Disapparated from Malfoy Manor. JKR shows us what was going on with Harry, but this is my version of what could have happened with Ron and Hermione after one of the most emotional/disturbing events in the entire series.
UPDATED June 2010 When I first wrote this fic, I didn't know what a beta reader was, and frankly, it showed. Thanks so much to Natalie for helping me polish this up and make it more readable. Thanks also to both Julia and Carole, whose helpful comments in the review section allowed me to make some much-needed corrections during the rewrite. I would love to know what you think ~ reviews are very much appreciated!
This was nominated in the 2010 Quicksilver Quill Awards for Best Canon Romance.
I love missing moments stories, and I think this one is shaping up to be one of my favorites. The emotions are so real, the story makes canonical sense, and I love how all the characters are portrayed, especially Ron. Keep up the amazing work!
Author's Response: That is such a nice thing to say, thanks. I checked out some of your other favorites and stayed up way too late reading some great stuff. Ron is my favorite character, and I am glad to know you think I'm doing okay by him. Missing moments are my absolute favorites. Thanks again for the kind words.
Perfect ending to a perfect story! Keep those fanfics coming!
Author's Response: I'm so glad you liked it! Thanks for taking the time to leave a response. I have more coming, just not good enough for public consumption yet. Hehe.
Summary: Have you ever wondered what J K Rowling missed? Have you ever thought to take the time to figure out why they said what they said, did what they did? In this series of one shots some of your questions are answered. Love, Friendship and the whos and whys.
Wow. If the other one shots in this series will be just as good and emotional as this one, it should make for a very promising read. Good work!
Author's Response: Thank you! I've got a few more that I need to send off to my beta already written (this was my favourite so I thought I'd post this first). I'm also doing a Dramione And What If...? series so keep your eyes peeled. Romantic xx
Summary: Because Tracey Davies wants nothing to do with her brother Roger, she avoids Ravenclaw House. But will she survive in Slytheirn? And is survival even what matters?
So I usually don't bother with OC stories but for some reason I did with this one and now I'm hooked! The characters are very believable and I can picture Tracey in Rowling's Hogwarts, trying to be invisible but resenting it the whole time. The characterizations of the Slytherin girls are spot on also - they remind me a bit of the fake-nice, judmental type like from Mean GIrls, who would of course be put in Slytherin.
Keep the story coming!
Author's Response: Dear SBH, Thanks for taking the trouble to review. I've definitely known my share of mean girls but I hope in this story I was exaggerating a little. Technically, Tracey isn't an OC, since there is a "Tracey Davis, Slytherin, half-blood" on JKR's list of Harry Potter's classmates. We probably know just as much (i.e. little) canon information about her as we do about Daphne Greengrass or Miss Runcorn. In this chapter, Tracey has almost slotted into a niche, but it still isn't clear whether she'll keep it or whether it's even a niche worth keeping. The story is finished and the remainder is to be posted in short order. GhV
