What a sad emotional ending to a chapter.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review (and nice to see you here). Polly (as you know) reappears in other stories. I hope that you enjoy the rest of these tales. They are the foundation on which my other stories are built. -N-

 

Chocolate Frog by L A Moody
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 147]

Summary: Past Featured StoryAmid the desolation of Diagon Alley, a tiny ray of hope lay buried. Nothing more than a tidbit amid the sweeping despair of Deathly Hallows, yet it would not let go of my imagination. Had I found the casually inserted pivotal clue that would rise like Nicolas Flamel from the pages of the first book? Or had I stumbled upon another Mark Evans: nothing but filler detail in the opening pages of The Order of the Phoenix, JKR having overlooked that he bore the same last name as Harry’s mother?

So I waited for my little gem to bear fruit, to become one of those climactic surprises we should have seen coming, but somehow overlooked. Only it never came to pass. The death count mounted to a staggering high, the epic moments came and went, Snape’s back story was finally revealed, and still nothing.

So it has lain, bereft and unwanted, among the detritus of a Diagon Alley the Death Eaters had turned into a bully’s playground. But in the intervening years, this rough diamond has become the inspiration for this story, spreading its tentacles into new and intriguing territories.

Although Harry mentions Chocolate Frog as the title of Mad-Eye Moody’s autobiography at the end of my previous tale, The Dark Phoenix, this version of the story goes beyond that. Nonetheless, the sections representing Moody’s memoirs are clearly labeled.

This story begins with events recounted in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and continues beyond the end of the series. I have attempted to conform to canon as much as possible, elaborating only where the circumstances are vague or passed over. It is an interpretation of the events that happened behind the scenes, so to speak.

Worth the wait.

Author's Response: Thanks for making my day! That was the absolute sweetest comment of all. Hope you won’t lose heart waiting for the next installment. One chapter has morphed into four and it’s been a bit like wrestling a bear.

Date: 05/09/12 Title: Chapter 33: Thirty - Three / Remus: Heaven and Hell

I have been reading this story for the last couple of nights and I am completely hooked. It is so original and yet based on cannon. In places the writing style positively glows. At this point I must say I think Ginny`s behaviour is disgraceful, but I expect you will sort it out. Waiting for more.

Author's Response: Without a doubt, those are the kindest words anyone has said to me! Thank you so much. I’m so pleased you got hooked into this tale.

I don’t have to tell you that Ginny’s main problem is that she’s immature. Barely seventeen and she’s been carted off to a cult of sports celebrity. Not so surprising that it goes to her head. It doesn’t help that her education was cut short: went into hiding during Easter term break after a sixth year that consisted mostly of planning insurrection. She’ll be back in the spotlight before much longer, don’t you worry.

This story has had its ups and downs, but they are all in a better place now.I just wish everybody in the world could have a New Year with the same to look forward to. Happy New year to all fanfiction writers and readers.

Author's Response: And a happy new year to you as well! But don't go thnkng this story is winding down. I still have some twists and turns in store to get the characters lined up for their roles in the epilogue.

Neviille is one of my favourite characters.

Author's Response: Music to my ears. You'll be please to know that a single Longbottom chapter managed to morph into 4 by the time I was done.

 

Where Are You? by Ginny Weasley Potter
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 32]

Summary:

MISSING
Name: Sheila Anne Rhodes
Age: 22
Height: 5ft 3in

Last seen at Fistral Beach wearing an orange bikini. If found, please contact us through any of the numbers listed below.


Someone goes missing at a beach in Newquay and apart from the grieving family members, nobody is really worried. After all, people keep disappearing like that throughout the year, right? Maybe Sheila's father or husband has unknowingly made an enemy somewhere. Newquay is still safe anyway.

That is what Chris Stevens and his steady girlfriend, Cheryl Willis, think as they head off to Cheryl's beach house for a vacation with a few other friends. Everybody is really looking forward for the trip-- it seems to be a breath of fresh air in each of their busy lives.

But what happens when the number of disappearances begins to increase with no trace of any of the victims? All-OC sequel to 'Killer Instincts', but can be read as a stand-alone. Thank you to my beta Alex/welshdevondragon for polishing this story! :)

Last lap. It has been quite a marathon.

Author's Response: Yes, it has-- more for me, I guess. A wonderful marathon of plotting and planning and writing. I miss writing this fic very heavily. Thank you for the review! :)

There is something odd about this story. Oh yes! The bad guys are winning.

I just found this and have been reading for two days. What a fantastic mix of magic, Indian culture, medical school, detective mystery and T.V. soap opera. I will certainly be following your work.

Author's Response: Oh, this review has really made my day! I giggled a little at the TV Soap part... and thank you so much! I'm so glad you're enjoying it so far and hope you will enjoy the further chapters! :) Thank you so very much!

Still following. Not sure how you are going to sort this out.

Author's Response: Ha! Good to know I have a regular reader. :D Next chapter will be in the queue in a few minutes and I think you should figure out at least a part of how this is going to end. ;) Thank you for the review! :)

Hell's Bells by ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 34]

Summary:

It was the worst news a father could receive: his son was marrying his worst enemy's daughter.

But for Draco Malfoy, being in the role of the reasonable parent was in itself a debacle as he tried to make the best of a bad situation. But when circumstances forced him to spend more time than he ever cared to with the most irritating Mudblood on the planet, he constantly questioned his sanity, as well as that of his son.

However, Draco might have come to realise that things change, as well as people. Is Hermione Granger Weasley the mad bint he remembered, or were they both a little different this time around?



A Dra-Comedy.

This story just gave me a big grin. Well done.

Author's Response:

I'm glad you liked it. I decided to make a cocktail of all the most obnoxious Dramione tropes and take them as un-seriously as possible. This was the result, and yay that it made you smile. It's sort of/kind of a follow-up to my other Draco wedding fic, Brazen. You may enjoy that one as well.

Thanks for stopping in!

A Family Matter by ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 14]

Summary:

Bachelor life suited Zach Smith just fine, and the lack of expectations on his time and attention suited him even more.

But his life changed in an instant with a knock on the door and an unexpected delivery.

I once lost one of my off spring on a crowded beach in Cormwall. It was probably one of the most frightening five minutes of my life.

Author's Response:

I'm pretty sure all of my parents' more frightful experiences with us were when we were tiny little jerks who would slip away at the grocery store or at some outdoor event. We'll call this a bout of character building for Zach, and perhaps he will maybe kinda realise that he cares about his little munchkin.

Thanks for reading!

Odd pairing. Interesting story.

Author's Response:

Well, this is my attempt at a family friendly story. As you've seen in the past, that hasn't been a thing I typically do. I still haven't decided whether I want Zach and Eloise to actually be a pairing, but I do have another chapter of this ready to post for whenever there are a few other stories between this and my last posted fic.

Reviewer: Dad Signed
Date: 06/20/14 Title: Chapter 6: Chapter 6

Good to see this chapter.

Author's Response:

Yay, welcome back!

I wanted a swift resolution to Cam's disappearance, mostly because Zach has never really been around kids and doesn't realise this is a thing kids do here and there. Plus, Eloise doesn't have kids, either, but cares about Cameron enough to kind of lose it when he is gone missing. Call it a lesson for both of them: Zach to 'level up' in parenting, and Eloise to maybe learn to be less high-strung about things that, in the end, are far less important than the kid being safe, happy, and healthy.

Let's see how that works out.

I am getting a warm feeling from this story.

Author's Response: This is probably as close as I'll get to family-friendly entertainment (you've read my work; you know how that normally goes), so yay! ~Jess
