I am enjoying this, but I wish the chapters were a bit longer.

Author's Response: Thank you! And I'm working on it - I find that usually after about a thousand words I run out of meaningful things to say in the chapter.

Preconceptions by Hotrav
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 8]


Ginny Weasley is where she used to dream to be someday. She is being hailed as the next great Quidditch player. She is the starting Chaser on the Holyhead Harpies and is playing Seeker for the first Unified United Kingdom Quidditch World Cup team. However, Ginny has discovered that being a 'Quidditch star' has costs. You have no privacy, and people will talk about you, saying things that have little or no foundation in truth.

Ginny is facing a turning point in her life. She will be going up against Viktor Krum and the favored Bulgarians. She also has a long term contract with the Harpies awaiting a signature after the match.

And there's always Harry Potter, the other part of her dream. Can she or does she still want both of them as the main part of her life?

It has been eighteen months to get to here. I hope we do not have to wait too long to find out what happens next.

Author's Response: fyi, I accidently hit the story is final button. An epilogue is coming, but the main stor ended with the 5th chapter. I'm sorry for the delays, but I lost my beta reader/editor and had to do it on my own. Thanks for your patience


Grounds for Divorce by Alice Mac
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 1]

Summary: Some, when sitting as I am now, ponder how they have arrived in this place. They do not recognise themselves, let alone the person sitting opposite them. That isn’t the case with me. There is no mystery; there is no question.

It was me - all me. Well, me and him.

Why has Ginny not seen her family or Harry for so long?

Author's Response: She withdrew from most of her family and friends because of her grief.

Date: 07/21/12 Title: Chapter 10: The Gorgon

This explains a bit of what happened but not a lot. Who is this McGonagoll, surely not a Hogwarts Professor training Aurors?

Author's Response: Yes, it was meant to show another perspective of the event, not to answer all the questions about it. This is indeed Minerva McGonagall. The chapter explains she is there at Shacklebolt's request to evaluate the new Aurors. Without formal assessments and a proper final year of school, and with so many trusted members of the ministry dead following Voldemort's attacks, Shacklebolt turned to McGonagall, who would be available during a summer session to assist in the rebuilding of the Ministry.

Another chapter full of questions and not a lot of answers.

Author's Response: Yes, there are many mysterious layers in this story, but they will be resolved in the end.

It leaps from one action and set of characters to another and can be a bit difficult to follow. What I cannot do is miss any of it. A huge work.

Reviewer: Dad Signed
Date: 09/01/12 Title: Chapter 14: The Gate

A philosophical chapter with an ending that promises plenty more action. Still a lot of threads to pull together, but this is great writing.

Reviewer: Dad Signed
Date: 06/27/12 Title: Chapter 7: The Wolfhaus

I said a few chapters back that there were a lot of possibilities for this story. Few! That was an understatement. There are an awful lot of things going on here and I cannot wait to see what happens next.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the kind words. I would be thrilled to know which story threads particularly interest you. I promise you two things. First, I aim to write a story that's actually worth the investment of time to read (i.e. not just a simple ho-hum Hollywood storyline where plot threads are obvious, cliched and predictable). And second, I promise to answer plot questions through the course of the story. There will be certain philosophical themes that may not be given a direct answer because the point is to get the reader thinking, not for me to give my particular view of ethics or the universe. But anything character or plot related, however nebulous the story becomes, I promise to answer. Knowing which questions are on your mind by the reviews you post will help me to be sure to follow up on your particular interests. Thank you again for your time and thoughtful comments.

We now have an idea where Harry has got to and why. I am a bit lost as to what happened at the end of the last chapter. Where will Draco turn up next. Why is Neville important? All magic story telling.

Author's Response: I'm glad you are enjoying. Some of this is meant to be confusing, but to clarify, Harry is at the mercy of Soran, who believes Harry still possesses the ability to speak Parseltongue. Torture, both mental and physical, is part of Soran's plan to make Harry magically part with that talent.

You have slightly confused me with this chapter. Am I right in thinking this is before chapter three? Without reading the whole thing again, I am not sure of the time line.
