Summary: An Irish witch languishes in the darkness of her family home, confined by her father and circumstances. What will it take to bring her out of this exile? The chance to return to Hogwarts? The opportunity to participate in the fight against Voldemort and his Death Eaters? Or will it be Severus Snape, a man she did not expect to see again in her lifetime?
This is canon compliant to OoTP but written pre-HBP.
Reviews and constructive criticism are most welcome, and thanks go to Ashwinder who kindly beta read the chapters for me. :-)
Oo cliffie. look forward to next chapter. great chapter.
Author's Response: Thanks! Everyone likes this cliffie!!
What a brilliant, moving chapter! Poor Maeve, nothing works out for her, but she should remember her father's advice. Roderick is as confusing as ever, and Dumbledore is worryingly feeble. Your story keeps moving and I can't wait for next chapter!
Brilliant chapter. I loved your descriptions of each of the characters sleeping, just a reminder of how developed and convincing all of your characters are. Poor Remus. I had my suspicions. Has he ever been with a girl? I'd never thought about that before.
Author's Response: Yes, poor Remus. I have a plan for him though and I think he'll like it. ;-)
Great chapter. Love the scene with Neville and Snape. You managed to find the perfect conditions for them to begin to respect/trust each other. I'm still wondering about Rampton though, why did he protect Maeve at Abbeylara? A fantastic character who becomes more complex at every turn.
Author's Response: And he's only going to get more intriguing. :-) I think he's the one character that I haven't written from their own POV because to do so would reveal too much about his character and motivation.
great chapter. really clever and well written. oo can't wait to find out what the gum can do exactly...
Author's Response: Thanks! Always great to get your reviews.:-)
Wow. just read the whole story from scratch and it is fantastic. I particularly love your completely believable and subtle characterisation and atmospheric description. In the earlier chapters I found it really interesting to see the world of Hogwarts and the Order from a new teacher or adult outsider. Loved the last chapters, fantastic mixture of action/romance/suspense. Excellent story brilliantly written.
Author's Response: Thank you for the review and I'm so pleased you enjoyed the story so far. I'm lurching between romance and plot and fighting to keep a balance so it's good to hear you think I've achieved it. :-)
Hmm Rodericks getting very interesting. poor lupin, poor tonks. silly fools. great chapter.
Author's Response: Yes, silly fools indeed...Remus needs a good slap!!LOL
another fantastic chapter and i can't wait for the next one! brilliant! wd. so what's dumbledore up to? v exciting.
What a beautiful chapter! Aw you have such a talent for describing the little details that make all the difference, I was near to tears at the proposal. Gorgeous. Oh i love it. Fantastic.
amazing chapter. can't wait to find out what happens. major suspense.
Aw the last two chapters have been perfect. sorry, tried three times to review the last one but it keeps logging me out. Really brilliant epilogue, can't wait for the last one!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! With the pain of the log in issues it's so great to see poeple still trying. I am so grateful to those of you who persevere to get your reviews posted. :-)
Summary: What if there were more to Remus Lupin's bite than a badly timed stroll in the woods? The arrival of a feral invokes secrets of the past and terror for the present...
V gd chapter, can't wait for next chapter but can definitely wait for the story to end. dilemma. You write all the characters so well, brilliant story.
bloody cliffhanger. and a shorty or so it felt. but gd characterisation etc, even if very little action/conflict in this chapter. can't wait for 41.
Perfect. Really encapsulated what the whole story has been leading up to. I thought you captured Remus perfectly, the precise strength he has that Kane has never had and you've given him, and us, the closure he was looking for. Really enjoyed this chapter.
Perfect. Wonderful. Amazing. Exciting and touching and humourous. I cannot begin to tell you how much i have enjoyed this story. The plot is gripping and your description is excellent, poetic at times. But the characterisation is the real strength of your story, both of canon characters and your own original characters, Reynard Lupin being my personal favourite. The interplay between characters is skillfully handled and always believable and satisfying. Your interpretation of Remus is perfect, his quiet strength being the centrepiece of the story and my absolute favourite aspect of the story.
Summary: (COMPLETE-- FINAL CHAPTER UP!!!) One day, everything changes. All it takes is for Harry to wake up, go through his daily routine, and bump into an unexpected person from his past... who tells him all the lies his friends and lover have been keeping from him. What then does Harry do--but try to live life as best he can?
wow great story. just read the whole thing though i really should be revising. very very clever and the tense changes worked very well. left me wanting more, esp of Teddy, are you sure he doesn't have a future you could write about?- not that i'm hinting or anything lol. looking forward to reading the prequel as well as there are still gaps i want filled. excellent stuff! 10/10
Summary: This story starts during the summer between Harry's fifth and sixth year. It follows his journey from the skinny, guilt-ridden Boy Who Lived to the Man Who Would Defeat Voldemort. Some H/G and R/Hr romance. Chapter 50 is up!!!! STORY COMPLETE!!! Written pre-HBP. This story no longer follows cannon.
Nice chapter and the patroni work well.
I knew it! filthy scumbag! gd chapter. interesting to see things from Ginny's perspective
Nice chapter but a bit short. Also i think Percy changed a little too easily.
Emotional chapter. Snape is such an interesting character. hope we find out lots more about him in hbp.
