Summary: "I wish you knew. I wish you knew everything that I keep inside. I wish I could tell you everything that has welled up inside of me. The things that are on my mind. You sit there as though there is nothing that bothers you; like you’re carefree. It’s rather annoying, actually."
A short fic told from Hermione's point of view.
I really like the way you keep the identity of Ron a scret until the end, really good piece of writing. :)
Author's Response: I liked that about the story too... thanks for reviewing!
When detention ruins his plan to take Ginny to Paris via the Room of Requirement, Draco brings Paris to Ginny, with the help of a house-elf named Slinky.

loved it! simply spiffing
Author's Response: Love that word, spiffing! Very spiffy way to put it. Thank you!
Summary: Twin-centric one-shot set during Book 5, after the duo left Hogwarts. Fred is being a twit. George is tired of it. They beat on each other. And a good time is had by all. Mentions of various other Weasleys, Hogwarts students and mild references to Fred/Angelina, George/Alicia and Angelina/Roger. R&R plz!
I love the dinamics yiuve worked between these two! you have portrayed them perfectly i reckon, you really are a good writer! keep going :)
Author's Response: Aww, thank you! I tried. This was definitely a harder story for me to write (humor\'s not really my thing) but I\'m pleased you liked it and the Weasley boys. :) Thanks again for the sweet reviews!
Summary: This story is post HBP. The funeral service has ended and students are headed home aboard the Hogwarts Express. Most everyone is still stunned over the events of the last several days. Our trio is no exception. Harry would really prefer to close his eyes and just disappear for a bit. Unfortunately, he doesn't have that luxury. There is so much more for him to do, so much more for him to figure out. Time is running out and things have never seemed so near impossible. Harry has to find and destroy the remaining Horcruxes, and then face his greatest nemesis. Can he protect those he loves? Can he protect himself? Can he meet his ultimate destiny?
While we wait for the release of Deathly Hallows, I thought it would be fun to see how far my own imagination would take me. All of it, of course, has been inspired by Rowling's beloved magical world.
Note: No DH references are included. Chapters 1 - 25 were written, with 1 - 20 posted before the release of DH, and I delayed reading DH until the final chapters were written.
You will not believe how much i cried throughout that whole thing! i have just read the whole story and it was bloody brilliant!
you gave the characters their own style and independance, i especially loved ron's speach in the dursley's kitchen because he was so mature. and the final battle was really good.
your imagination is wicked, the extra lessons were amazing too! and none of the plot seemed really out of it either, the characters didnt change, for example snape didnt run up to harry and hug him and say, 'im your real godfather!', he stayed sinister the whole way through!
anyway im going to stop rambling now, and im hoping you have done a sequel including harry finding out what went wrong with lily and petunia besides hogwarts! loved it! mwah!
Author's Response: Thank you so, so very much. And no, you weren\'t rambling. :) I\'m glad you found this story so moving. I knew from the moment I wrote the first few chapters where and how it would end; but it was emotional for me seeing it unfold in my mind\'s eye and on paper. I\'ve loved writing it and sharing it on MNFF and every time I get a response like yours, every hour spent writing and editing it feels so well worth it. I haven\'t written any sequel, yet; but your suggestion definitely has potential. I\'ll keep it in mind. Thank you again.
Summary: A forbidden romance, both families never being able to know about the other, happens between two teenagers, and the only time they have is stolen phone calls in the middle of the night. But is it all worth it?
sounds good so far, but I really wanna know who the girl is.lol. you write well!
Author's Response: The girl is Lily!! Couldnt you tell from “Lils? You still there?” he asked in his near silent, velvet voice.\" Oh, the guy is Sirius, I didn\'t want to make it blatantly obvious, just a few major clues here and there. Im glad you like it! Im gonna try writing a few more chapters. Thanks for the review!!
Summary: Lauren has always been Hermione's best girlfriend, but she is a Muggle. She plays the cello. How can that help Harry, Ron and Hermione in their quest to find the Horcruxes? O/C plus R/Hr and H/G

ooooh the suspense! please right more!!!! ace btw!
PLEASE CARRY ON!!!! ace story line!
Summary: After his failed attempt on Dumbledore's life, Draco seeks refuge at the Order of the Phoenix. Sent back to Hogwarts with suspicious title of Head Boy, he is forced to share a dormitory with none other than Hermione Granger. But with war looming on the horizon and another danger even closer to home, their seventh year of Hogwarts is anything but ordinary.
A story of compelling intrigue, hidden motives, dangerous secrets, and obvious passion. Animagi, Quidditch, the Order of the Phoenix. Masquerades and riddles. Hate and love. Pleasure and pain. A blend of contradictions that, for two people, makes a truly unforgettable final year. Slow moving D/Hr with plenty of plot.
ORMAN!!! something needs to be done about that pr*k! i cant believe him, and he is so a death eater undercover, how are they missing that little but very obvious fact?! its so frustrating!!
i flipping love this story btw, its fab and i really cannot wait for the next chapter, you always manage to draw the emotions out of the reader so they feel what the characters do. well done on another great chapter =D
Author's Response: Lol, poor Orman. Everyone is so suspicious! He hasn\'t done anything *extremely* out of the ordinary, except for skeeze out Hermione. That doesn\'t automatically make him a bad guy (though you certainly don\'t have to like him for it...)\r\nI\'m so happy you like the story and I\'m incredibly relieved that the proper emotions are coming across. It\'s hard to get that right sometimes, when you\'re so concerned with what you\'re actually writing. :)\r\nThanks for the review!!!
loved it! that was fabulous, Ron needs sorting out badly! keep it coming!
Author's Response: Haha, that he does. Thanks so much for reviewing!!
Aaaah! poor draco, evil evil evil blaise! love this latest installment keep it up!
Author's Response: I know! He\'s such a meanie. Happy you like it; thanks for the review!
