Who are the strangers at Drakeshaugh?

50th anniversary of time travel (Dr Who)? Or I might have read this before.

Author's Response: You're right, I admit it. I demand to be incarcerated in the Tower immediately, with my co-conspirators Sandshoes and Granddad. -N-

Hell's Bells by ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor

Rated: 6th-7th Years •

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 has been nominated for a 2011 Quicksilver Quill Award: Best Non-Canon Romance.

This story has also been nominated for a 2014 Quicksilver Quill Award: Best Humour Story.

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 •

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.

This story has been nominated for a 2014 Quicksilver Quill Award: Best Post-Hogwarts Story.

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.

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

The Victory Day Victims by Sainyn Swiftfoot

Rated: 6th-7th Years •

Two successive Victory Day parties; two survivors of the War poisoned. Similar circumstances, similar poisons, similar modi operandi.


Henry Chumly is an old, callous, unaccepting, misogynistic and in every way completely unsavoury drunk. Almost coincidentally, he also happens to be the best detective at the new agency of the Ministry, the the Cadwallader-Hundert Agency for Response to Malmagic.


Padma Patil is young, pretty, talented and excited to work at the Ministry, cracking cases and nabbing criminals. Before her application is accepted, though, she has to spend the customary few weeks working under a professional detective. She expects ennui, tasks far below her talents and frustration; but nothing anyone had ever told her prepared her for Henry Chumly.


This is the story (if you ask him) of how Henry put up with the bint and solved the case single-handedly or the story (if you ask her) of how Padma stunned everyone by not only managing to avoid murdering her utter bastard of a superior, but also being the first probationer to play a pivotal role in solving a case. This being a mystery, and in tune with the essence of mysteries, if you wish to find out the truth, you’ll have to read on till the end.


[chaptered; OCs and minor characters; comic mystery]


This is Sainyn Swiftfoot of Hufflepuff writing for the 2011 Mysterious May Challenge in the Great Hall, Prompt 2.


The views expressed by the utterly hateable Henry Chumly are not those of my own. Please do not take offense.

I have just read this and I may be talking to thin air. I cannot believe it only got ten reviews. It was brilliant. It should be a series.

Unspeakable by C_A_Campbell, Northumbrian

Rated: 6th-7th Years •
Summary: Unspeakable, Michael Corner, is researching time, events, and probabilities. While testing his newly-invented RANDOM system, he stumbles upon an unspeakable possibility. Former supporters of Voldemort, all acquitted for their crimes, are dying of so-called natural causes. Intrigued by the possibility that these events might be connected, Michael investigates farther. But what he discovers will test him and raise questions that all his probabilities cannot answer for him.

What is justice? And what is unspeakable cruelty?

This is C_A_Campbell/thegirllikeme and Northumbrian of Ravenclaw writing for the 2011 Mysterious May Challenge in the Great Hall, Prompt 4.

Author's Response: Thanks.
I can finally reply, there have been several more chapters of "Strangers at Drakeshaugh", but it's never enough! :-D

Does Dudley know whether he is coming or going? Good read.

Author's Response: Haha I'm not sure I understand the question. I do see Dudley as a very conflicted character, which would be what drives almost his every action. Thanks for commenting! Cheers :)

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: An incredibly valuable item has gone missing, and everybody is completely stumped. There is no way a stranger could have entered the room! How was the crime committed?

Much More Than A Game by Hypatia

Rated: 6th-7th Years •
“Lord Voldemort has never had a friend, nor do I believe that he has ever wanted one.”
-Dumbledore, HBP, ch 13

Dumbledore was rarely wrong, only once did Lord Voldemort desire a friend. It started out as only a game, but became so much more…

This is the story of how the teenaged Tom Riddle met a unique individual and slipped from cold indifference, to affection, to friendship, to romance. Discover how even Voldemort’s cold and callow heart was once broken beyond repair. This is for anyone curious about how an imperfect love warped and twisted a corrupt young man into the Dark Lord.
