Summary: When Draco Malfoy walked into a shop one night looking for help, he found the last person he would have expected: Neville Longbottom. To Neville's surprise, Draco accepted his help.

Winner, Quicksilver Quill Award for Best Post-Hogwarts story
A sad ending, but very moving. The whole thing was just a pleasure to read. Very original pairing.
Summary: It had been three years since his wife's death, but the first woman to make him feel something is the last woman he'd have thought. The fact that he's closer in age to her father than to her does not help matters.
Otherwise known as All Soraya's Fault.
Important note: I used the Student/Teacher warning as a precaution; the relationship in this story is between a teacher and his former student, for whom he had no feelings while she was under his tutelage. Just to be clear.
Another important note: I'm not JKR. She has a much nicer house.
Interesting story line and very moving.
Summary: “Hey... Harry? I found some letters Sirius wrote. Have you ever heard of an Élisabeth LaBelle?”
What if you loved someone, in secret, all your life? What if you had no idea if they were even alive, and you had no way to contact them? Would you still keep them in your heart?
I have just found this story and I am hooked.
Summary: At the end of sixth year, Lily hates Severus. She can never forgive him for that one word, no matter how careless. And so, when she goes home, Lily spends only a short time in her neighborhood before joining Mary in Godric’s Hollow.
At the end of sixth year, James loves Lily. She is his life. He lives to see her each and every day. And so, when he goes home, James is looking for a new way to win her heart in the coming year. Remus comes over, and the two hatch a plan.
At the end of sixth year, everything is as usual.
At the beginning of seventh year, everything has changed.
If Lily and James do not get together it will be very bad for the Harry Potter stories.
Author's Response: Haha we know... don't worry it's canon.
If nothing could go wrong, why is this story called "AWRY"?
Author's Response: Because everything doesn't go to plan.
Summary: Dominique Weasley had not wanted to attend the party, but when she saw her, all thoughts of Disapparating vanished as she was wrenched off her axis and capitulated into hitherto unknown feelings.
This is Equinox Chick and this is my entry into the Great Hall Illustration for Inspiration Challenge. I chose a picture drawn by the amazing Natalie (hestiajones) I must also thank her for beta'ing this fic.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling.
This is certainly not the sort of story I come across in my usual stamping grounds, but it is intriguing and very well written.
Author's Response: Thank you very much for taking a chance on the story as it's not your usual sort of thing. I very much appreciate the review as well. ~Carole~
Summary: As Draco Malfoy walks into a dusty shop in Diagon Alley, his eyes fall on something that makes him recall a day he wants to forget.

Summary: On the last day of his last year, a young man looks to his future in a poppy field by the lake…
Written for the Character Clinic Challenge by Gmariam of Ravenclaw.
Different. But why is she sorry?
Author's Response: She's sorry for having to say no at this point. I can't really see them getting engaged quite so young. Thanks for reading, I appreciate the review! ~Gina :)
Summary: Ron runs away, and runs into a spot of bother.
This is Northumbrian of Ravenclaw writing for Round One of the 2012 Character Triathlon.
Fine as it is.
Author's Response: Thanks. -N-
Summary: AU. Professor Snape finds himself in a bit of a predicament when someone from his school days shows up to teach at Hogwarts. Serena Wolfsbane, an accomplished Auror, takes up her new teaching position and discovers that there is definitely more to Snape than meets the eye. Follows basic plot of last 4 Harry Potter books.
Interesting information coming from this chapter. Waiting for more.
Is this the real Moody? Plenty to go yet.
Author's Response: The Moody we see here is the same "Moody" that appears throughout the majority of Book 4. Namely, it's Crouch Jr. impersonating Moody.
Serena looks like being a very impressive character.
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you think so. And thanks for reading :)
Summary: Draco ought to have expected he'd end up dying facedown in an alley, but nothing could have prepared him for the events or the friendships that would follow.
Draco/Neville, with references to previous Draco/Harry and Neville/Harry, as well as references (nothing explicit, merely allusions) to non-consensual memories.
Beta'd by the inestimable Soraya, to whom I owe at least three tonnes of baked goods by now.
I'm still not JKR.
I'm still not JKR.
Third in the Long Way Down continuity, this story takes place between the events of The Breaking Point and Tempus Vernum.
An interesting conversation and Neville is certainly different from his Hogwart days.
Is this just turning into a Neville = Draco thing or is there action on the brotherhood/ Auror front?
Author's Response: It's a little of both. This story's panning out to be much longer than the others in this series, so the buildup is a little slower.
This is a great Neville. Wonderful dialogue.
Summary: What was Hermione's life like before Hogwarts? Why does she love books so much? Why doesn't she have any friends? What are her parents like and what impact have they had on her life?
A story of Hermione's life before Hogwarts.
I'm not J.K. Rowling. I suppose more than a few of you know that.Edit: Thank you guys so much!! Over 1000 reads on my first story... whoever has read this is amazing.
Is Mariah a muggle or....?
Author's Response: Yes, Mariah is a muggle. I created her to show how she was the only friend that Hermione has had in her younger years. Thank you for reviewing, however short the review!
Summary: October 3rd. They still haven't told him; it's likely never will. This is the most and least selfish act they have committed, and in spite of it all they just can't let go. One-shot, Remus/Lily.
Very emotive writing, but I am afraid I did not like your story line.
Author's Response: Perfectly fine, I know it may be a pretty unpopular concept. :)
'Even in a castle this huge, with as many cousins as I have there’s always someone with a map to come and scoop me out of my tear-stained reverie in a dark corner.'
Molly Weasley Jr cannot leave Hogwarts, for she cannot leave her best friend behind.
This was originally written for the Illustration for Inspiration challenge over in the Great Hall, however it wasn't long enough and I didn't have time to rework it in order to post it in time to qualify.
The title is inspired by the Chicago song 'If You Leave Me Now'.
Nominated for a 2013 Quicksilver Quill in the Next Generation category.
It was too well written because it made me sad. I would really like to know how molly gets on in life after Hogwarts.
Author's Response: Aww thank you! I'm sorry it made you sad :( I'm starting to think I should write a sequel... seems Molly needs some closure! Thank you for the review :) Fenella x
Summary: The past: some cling to it, others deny it; some learn from its lessons, while others are locked in the cycle of their mistakes. How far would a man be willing to go to move beyond his past and ensure that it will not define him? Severus Snape is about to learn.
Author's Response: Thanks 😊
Summary: Charlie Weasley loves his job in Romania: he was born to lead the life of a carefree dragon keeper. Yet when a new keeper from Wales arrives to help with a difficult Chinese Fireball, Charlie is forced to take on a partner, when he'd rather work alone. And this new keeper challenges him in more ways than one…
More than an interesting relationship here, but I am not convinced I can see it happening. Excellent writing.
Author's Response: Thank you for the review. I'm glad you are finding it interesting at this point. Thank you for the compliments, I hope you enjoy the rest! ~Gina :)
