Interesting personal relationships developing, but the dragons are the main thing.

Author's Response: Thank you for the review! I take it you are a bit of a dragon fan, then? I hope you like how the story plays out with both! Thanks for reading, I appreciate the review! ~Gina :)

The Loannes Potion by crbluvsravenclaw
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 4]

Summary: There's a desire. All possess it, but one achieves it until death marks its destruction. There's a book. At first sight, it is old and dusty. However, it is selected instead of the other polished replicas. There's a note. The selector discovers it in a random section of the book just weeks later. They decide to study the scribbles on it. There's a problem. As always, there is some sort of dilemma halting the desirable task from its conclusion. There's a result. The solution may be solved at long last or it may be far from it, waiting for years to render its capability.

Interesting set of new characters. I am not quite sure of the time period this is set in. Is it before or after Remus Lupin attended Hogwarts?

Author's Response: It is set after Remus Lupin and the Trio's time. I would say that the prologue was set in the 2020's and the first chaprter and the remainder of the book is set eleven years after that. Thank you so much for reading and reviewing! I really appreciate it! ~crbluvsravenclaw

Flying with Dragons by epiphany212
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 3]

Summary: Oliver Wood to Harry Potter: "I wouldn’t be surprised if you turn out better than Charlie Weasley, and he could have played for England if he hadn't gone off chasing dragons."

So how exactly did Charlie decide between Quidditch and dragon-keeping, after all?

Dark Fire by Phoenix Song114
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 4]

Summary: Celesta Grey isn't expecting anything good to come out of her fourth year at Hogwarts. Why should she when her parents are ignoring her, her insufferable cousins are bullying her and her friends, and she is reminded of a secret every waking minute? Cell isn't expecting new feelings to arise, or a strange foe to come, or even a simple promise that turns out to be harder to keep as each day passes.
Cell is in for a complicated year. Bloody typical.

Teach My Feet to Fly by Equinox Chick
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 12]

Summary: Andromeda Black is not a girl who is reckless. Risks are for the foolhardy, and she is too clever for that. But she hasn't factored Ted Tonks' persistence into the equation of her life.

And Ted wants to teach her how to fly ...

This is Equinox Chick of Hufflepuff writing for Round 2 of the Character Clinic Triathlon - Minor Characters. I chose the Music prompt.

The song that Andromeda listens to in this story is River by Joni Mitchell. It is beautiful.

Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling. I am not Joni Mitchell. I am someone who admires both artists greatly.

Ta lotsly to the lovely Natalie (hestiajones) who beta'd this and is a truly fabulous friend.

I think there is room to develop this some more. Will they get caught? Won't they? Good little read.

Author's Response: Mm. There's certainly room to develop it more, but to be honest I just wanted to write a silly story about Scabior and Fenrir having issues roughing it in Florida. They aren't caught for now, and that's what matters. (Honestly even if they don't get caught they'll probably spend the rest of their lives guarding against being caught, so no neat resolution if that's the case - and tbh I don't want to write about them being caught xD). Wow, okay, that took more words than expected. Just explaining why this is all there is. :) Thanks for reading and reviewing anyway.

 

One, Two, Three by Alice Mac
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 5]

Summary: Past Featured StoryHave you ever been a part of something? I have - we were one, two, three together. Three pieces of a rather small jigsaw puzzle. But we were solid, strong and we felt untouchable.

Do you believe in 'forever?' I did. But then, I could be quite arrogant at times.

Good Enough by Acacia Carter
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 10]

Summary: O.W.L. results have arrived, and Scorpius is certain his parents will be less than pleased.

-----

This is Acacia Carter of Hufflepuff, writing for the Minor Character Challenge of July 2012.

Many thanks to Julie/Peppermint Toads for the beta, Jess for the nudge to write Scorpius, Gina for the nudge to write this Scorpius, and Soraya for listening to my angst.

Please note that this is a companion piece to another of my works, An Intervention. It can be read alone, but if you are interested in Scorpius's past, the beginnings of it are available on my author page.

It's not my fault I seem to be incapable of writing a story without Neville in it. Really, it's not my fault this time - blame Gina.

Gaps Between by lucca4
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 4]

Summary:

Falling in love teaches Dennis Creevey that sometimes, needing someone isn't a bad thing, especially as it helps him forget all that he's lost.

It fails, however, to show him that forgetting can only go on for so long.

Thank you to Ari for her loveliness in betaing this story.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I am thrilled you found the idea of them attending such a concert and discussing such things over such works believable.

Stolen Magic by coolh5000
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 42]

Summary: Past Featured Story

Samuel Radley is a wizard born without magic. Coming from a family with generations of witches and wizards, his brother Adrian has never really understood why Samuel has been left without, especially when there are others, with no magical blood at all, who somehow find themselves able to do magic. As he enters his fourth year at Hogwarts, it seems that the Ministry are finally starting to do something about this imbalance and Adrian couldn't be happier. All around him however, there is resistance to the new laws, and suddenly Adrian finds himself an outsider in his class and abandoned by his friends, when all he's ever done is love his family.

This is coolh5000 of Slytherin writing in the Great Hall chaptered challenge, for the Phoenix Rising prompt. I am pleased to say this story won in its section!

I am also really thrilled to say that Adrian Radley won the Chaptered QSQ for Best Original Character 2013! The story was also nominated in the Best General category.

This story is developing nicely. I can see that people will have to take sides before the end of the school year, but where will the uncommitted go? Keep it coming.

Author's Response: Thanks! There's been a bit of a gap, but hopefully the next chapter will be up soon :)
