Summary: Everyone knows the story of Harry's time at Hogwarts . . . but what was it like for the other students? Many other stories unfolded during those years . . . this is one of them.
Good. Perhaps a little short.
A bit short but a powerful end.
A lot of good snappy dialogue, but is anything happening?
I am not sure if this felt like an ending. Owl results come by owl post over the summer break.
Author's Response: right I forgot about that! thanks I'll fix that part
Are we going to get a mystery solved?
Interesting characters, but I look forward to a bit more plot development.
It makes a nice change featuring other characters. Look forward to more.
Author's Response: Thanks! Hopefully there'll be lots more to come
I am not quite sure what is going on here. Still, I am sure we will find out eventually.
Studying dark arts uh!
Summary: As an older, wiser Remus Lupin returns to school on the Hogwarts Express, he meets a memory from his past: his best friend's son. And he realizes that he now has a second chance to protect Harry from whatever harm the recently escaped Sirius Black may intend.
Author's Response: Thank you very much!! ~Gina :)
Summary: Lysander Scamander isn't normal. Not one little bit. Although, what IS normal? Follow Lysander on his journey to find who he is, and what his purpose is in this world.
I like the fact that Luna's off spring are getting a story. Very original.
Author's Response: Thanks! That's exactly why I wrote it! Thanks for reading! :)
Summary: During her Sixth Year at Hogwarts, Luna Lovegood is captured by Death Eaters as she rides the Hogwarts Express home for Christmas. What on earth was going through her head during this harrowing experience?
Short but tells the story. Very believable Luna.
Summary: There is magic the likes of which humans can barely remember and seldom experience. There is, however, a handful of men privileged enough to experience a part of it: the Dryad's Consorts.
Written for the last third of Madame Alex's Character Triathalon!
Many thanks to Maple for the beta; I couldn't see myself sending this one to anyone else.
Anything you recognise is JKR's. Anything you don't recognise is possibly mine, but probably JKR's.
Wood-nymphs, more commonly known as Dryads, are first and last mentioned in the Potterverse by Fleur in Goblet of Fire. In Greek mythology, these cunning magical creatures are entirely female, and must capture and seduce human men in order to bear daughters and heirs to their forests. In other works of literature they are described as bold and highly territorial, with voracious, er, "appetite" for particular intimate activities. So, basically a shy Herbologist's every fantasy...
T am just a sad grumpy old man, but I am sitting here with tears running down my cheeks. That was just magic.
Summary: The Hawthorn tree is the Celtic symbol of consequence, relationships, and contradiction. It's the symbol of juxtaposition, and also of balance. The beautiful blossoms of the tree are nestled deep within razor-sharp thorns. Despite the harshness of the opposites, it still manages to become reborn each year as the wondrous being of nature we see it as.
Marriage, like the Hawthorne, is rarely -- if ever -- simple. Sometimes the roots decay and the structure dies, and other times the harmony of the union of opposites is enough to keep it alive year after year. Ron and Hermione Weasley's marriage is one such sapling, but will their case be one among the beautiful boughs? Or will it lie dead and trodden upon, long forgotten by time?
This is opti from Hufflepuff House writing for the Great Hall Chaptered Challenge. Prompt: Bonded.
It is looking a bit grim at the moment.
Author's Response: And I wish I could say whether it is going to be better any time soon. Just have to wait and see, I s'pose ;) Thanks for the review, as well!
I am not sure if it is realistic to sack a hero of the war against Voldemort just like that, but it makes for an interesting story.
Author's Response: See, this is one problem I've always had with canon. Despite that they are heroes, if there are going to be some serious fiscal and money flow issues and judging by the way the Ministry was and has been run for hundreds of years then I can't help but see this sort of thing happening. They won't sack Hermione because she's a valuable asset as a worker and a possible icon for the new regime. Definitely not Harry because that would probably start a mass riot. Ron, however, is still the sidekick despite everything we know as readers. He's good at what he does, but if someone were to be sacked out of the trio I can easily see him getting the short end of the stick. Even if Shacklebolt were Minister, if this were run like a half-decent ministry then he's not going to be able to override a vast majority vote against the program. And, remember this doesn't single out Ron in particular: it's an entire department being laid off. I understand if we don't see eye-to-eye but thanks for the review, anyways!
Other Lives and Dimensions and Finally a Love Story by MoRoCcAnAnDpRoUd
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 6]
Summary: The year is 1977, and the Wizarding World is in turmoil, but it doesn't really know it yet. A set of young wizards and witches in their last year at Hogwarts are only just figuring out their places in the world around them. They fall in and out of love whilst pledging their lives to the only thing that truly matters: fighting the darkest force that has ever struck their world. This is the story of the wizards' lost generation.
Your characters are very real and less than perfect. Very interesting.
Author's Response: Thank you!
You are certainly developing some interesting characters here. I look forward to more. I think the prologue will probably make more sense after you have finished the story.
Author's Response: It probably will! Thanks for reading :) I hope you enjoy the rest
Summary: Diffraction - the phenomenon where light encounters an obstacle.
It is September the first, and a sixth-year boy takes photographs of excited children on platform nine-and-three-quarters. Everyone looks happy, but Aaron Harper's heart is leaden. He can deal with the girl he fancies going out with the obnoxious Hugo Weasley, but coping at Hogwarts with no support from his father could be one obstacle too many.
This is Equinox Chick of Hufflepuff and this is my story for the Character Clinic OC challenge: Prompt 1.
Disclaimer: I'm not JKR: Hogwarts isn't mine, neither is Hugo Weasley, but Aaron Harper and Genister Avery are.
A good start to what looks like an interesting "other characters" story.
Author's Response: Thank you very much. Secind chapter is up soon. ~Carole~
