I have been a huge Harry Potter fan since I was eleven and first read Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets because the first book wasn't in at the school library. I have always enjoyed reading fan fiction, but I was never sure if I really wanted to write my own or not. However, I had a few ideas for stories, so I decided to try it out. I hope you enjoy!
I'm also participating in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo.org) this November. My username on there is mariacsteinmetz, send me a NaNomail if you're on too! The more the merrier, especially with NaNo! : )
OMG!!!! This story was AMAZING!!!! It kept me up until 3:30 am reading it, i couldn't stop! i loved the ron/hermione and harry/ginny stuff, and i especially loved when harry hears the messages from the dead, especially from hermione's mum...FANTASTIC story! oh, and i loved the idea of the snape ghost, that's the most original idea i've read in any story and it really seems to fit him perfectly. GREAT STORY, i absolutely LOVED it!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I had a great time writing it. I hope you\'ll find the sequel on SIYE and tell me what you think of my continuation.
Wow...that story made me laugh and cry and i didn't finish my homework tonight because i stayed up reading it! that was awesome and i loved that you managed to keep everyone in character. Can't wait for the prequel i want to know what happened in that cave!!!
Cold chills. Poor Draco. The paragraph about why he might be jealous of Harry for having friends that would give their lives for him is really fantastic. It's a side of Draco that isn't explored in the series, but which is entirely plausible.
oh that was a really great story, i definitely got a little teary-eyed. i loved the ending, "What a lovely family portrait," just, really great. : )
oh good story, i can actually see this happening. you wrote ron and hermione really well, it actually sounded like them, especially at the end. i really liked this story, it sounds like how that situation could actually happen in the books. good job!
Aagh! i hate cliffies! good way to end the story though, i can't wait until the next one is up, i want to know if Harry and Ginny have a boy or a girl and, of course, what Malfoy meant by that. Write quickly!
Author's Response: I\'m on it! Thanks for the review!
I love this story! It's so great to feel like i get to know James, Lily, Sirius, Lupin and everyone better. It was especially neat to read about James and Lily, because now i can visualize them as real people, not just Harry's parents who died. Great story, can't wait for the final chapter!!
Author's Response: Thank you very much - I\'m really glad. And that\'s why I love this era so much - you get to know Harry\'s parents as people! And what people they are ... If you\'d like some more of that, my other fic in this category The Things I Do For L.O.V.E focusses very much so on getting to know the generation before Harry. Thanks for reviewing.
Oh that beginning was purely evil, i couldn't believe it...good joke though...i love the idea of the bell jar popping back up again, hope it works...can't wait for the next chapter! i've loved both of these stories!
Author's Response: Thank you for reading and enjoying both stories. I hope the end is satisfying. I\'m glad I fooled some people with my joke too. =)
Yay! hope it validates soon, i love this story!
Author's Response: I have the one after this done too, so hopefully the updates go quickly.
Good story! I definitely liked the twist at the ending, it's good to know that they can still pull pranks! Good luck with your own story, hopefully we'll see it in stores someday : )
Author's Response: Hopefully indeed! Thanks for reviewing, I\'m really glad you liked it!
Oh no!! Sirius! But wait...don't phoenixes rise from the ashes? hmm....great chapter, that was about as exciting as anything J.K. Rowling herself writes! definitely worth the wait and i can't wait for the next one!
Author's Response: Thank you very much, and I hope the next one is also satisfying, though it won\'t be quite as exciting.
Wow it's getting exciting! I love this story! Please update soon!
Author's Response: Update is posted! Hopefully they\'ll approve it soon.
Yay next chapter! Hmm possibly revealing title...hope it validates soon!
Author's Response: yeah, it is the last chapter too. And I do as well! =)
Really exciting! I thought it was gonna be Malfoy but i wasn't sure. i love the weasley flair on the rock/heads, very in-character! can't wait for the next one!
Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked it! My wife read that Malfoy wanted heads, and I told her that they would transfigure rocks into heads to fool him, and she decided that was \"gruesome.\" So I thought for a while and made one of the Weasleys say the same thing and made it less gruesome by making it funny. I\'m glad that worked out, it was fun to write.
Aagh i can't stand the suspense!!! who is it? what happens? please update soon!
Author's Response: Updating as we speak... though we aren\'t exactly communicating in real time, so by the time you read this I\'m sure I will have submitted it for some time already. =)
I love this story! I always think it's cool to see the trio and company's kids in stories. Not to mention, it's fun to see everyone grown up and to see that they haven't changed much! I loved your first story too, it had such an interesting perspective on everything.
Author's Response: Thank you! I really wanted to write something that was following what J.K. had already written but still be unique from what has been written on this site otherwise. I\'m glad you like it!
I love this story! It's so interesting to have a different perspective...please update soon!
Author's Response: Thanks very much! I will update soon my dear readers, there\'s one more chapter then the epilogue... and then the sequel :)
Just wanted to add that my favorite part about your story is seeing Harry, Ron and Hermione from a different perspective. It's so interesting to see what the other students think of them and to kind of watch them from a distance. Great story!
Author's Response: That\'s the interesting thing is figuring out how they appear to everyone else :) Thanks hon :)
This story is definitely interesting. I'm really curious to know how Harry lost his memory and who the voice in his head was. At first i assumed it was voldemort, but when it started getting unsure about things, i didn't really think so. please update soon!
i like this story! definitely presents an interesting concept about what the deathly hallows could be and why they're important. good story!
Author's Response: Thanks! I\'m glad you liked it!
