The Unseemly Proposal by sparx
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 5423]

Summary: Past Featured StoryThe reign of Voldermort comes to an end, and with it ends the prestige and power Lucius Malfoy once had in the Wizarding World. In order to regain the respect of his fellow wizards and to make them believe that he has turned over a new leaf (which he actually hasn't) and has graciously accepted muggles and Mudbloods, Lucius asks Hermione, a Mudblood, to marry his son, Draco, a pure-blood. Obviously, they both refuse, but Lucius isn't going to give up easily. After all, he wants his status back. He still has a few tricks up his sleeve and is determined to play match-maker. What happens next is a series of events that serve only to bring Hermione and Draco closer, both literally and figuratively speaking. Read to find out how this one unseemly proposal causes absolute chaos in their lives! THIS STORY IS NOT HBP and DH COMPATIBLE! Hey all! Check out my personal info for the expected date of the next update. =)

Hello, I really love your story, it the BEST Draco and Hermione story that I've read! In alot of them D and H are completly OC, and there's usually the whole Draco beating Hermione to pulp bit. But your story has them very in-character, and the whole plot is much more likely than many other D/H stories! So thank you for you brilliance and I hope that you will continue with it! :D


Imperius by Pallas
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 482]

Summary: “Imperius… Werewolves…You-Know-Who…” The last words of a dying man force Remus Lupin into a dangerous investigation at the infamous Feral Institute. Sequel to Oblivious; pre-reading would be useful but it isn’t vital.

Masked Ferret Unmasked by Eilime
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 110]

Summary: One-shot fanfiction

A Masquerade Ball has been arranged in the Golden Trio’s seventh year at Hogwarts and everyone is bursting with excitement. That is, everyone except Draco Malfoy who definitely does not expect to find the love of his life with whom he’s supposed to spend the rest of his measly life at this uninventive and unoriginal ball.

An epic romance. Will love conquer all? Is it true that opposites attract? And who are these opposites doomed to be? Why does Draco feel the need to clench and unclench it buttocks repeatedly? Is he ill? Or is he just wishing for this fanfiction to end? Read and find out …in this prodigious, celestial, sumptuous, epic romance in which love will prove... Oh, God, I can’t even write this heinous summary. Just read the *loud beeping sound* fic.

Need I warn you that this story is OOC?

Oh, all right, fine: Warning: OOCness

9th story in a series of Hermione/Draco one-shots (Check out my author page for more information)

Reviewer: dandy_like_a_lion Signed

So, almost since I finished reading DH I started looking for THIS story, or rather, one that went in depth in Lily and Severus' relationship. And there have been a couple of stories that were good but most were one-shots and/or didn't do a very good job with the canon. And then other were just far too angst ridden for me; boo-hoo, everything is ruined and now I am going to die--gleck aweful stuff, and I don't believe that Snape would give up so easily.
And then, when I had practically given up on finding a good "Severus-character-exploration story" I found your's!!! And it's amazing! I think you do an excellent job portraying Snape's character. And I love how insightful and logical you have made him, he is much more realistic than alot of fanfic Snapes.
I also like the Tobias thing, you have rounded out a usually flat character, brilliant.
Additionally, the way you handle all of Snapes relationships is very real. And you show your skill and maturity as a writer in the way you deal with Snapes "enemies", most fanfic writers make the conflicting party flat and BAD. But you take the time to make them real people-excellent.

And I can't wait to read more! I check at least once a week to see if you have written anything else! I'm especially excited to see everybodys' reaction the "new" Snape, the marauders are going to wet themselves! ;D


A Certain Slant of Light by Hatusu
Rated: Professors [Reviews - 61]

Summary: Past Featured Story

At age fifteen, Regulus Black became sole heir to the largest fortune in Wizarding London. At sixteen, his abnormal intelligence won him entry into the most notorious cult of Dark wizards on earth. At seventeen he made a mistake – one that he would never be able to take back – and his entire world came crashing down.

Enter London, 1979. The story of a boy who managed to defy Voldemort at the height of his regime. But what price did he have to pay?

Brilliant. Beautiful.


Summary: Peter Pettigrew wasn't always a traitor. He was a Marauder, a prankster and a good friend.

Peter Pettigrew wasn't always called Wormtail.

Perhaps, one change led to the other?

Captuered Peter perfectly. Very good.

Author's Response: Thank you very much for the review. I'm glad you thought I'd captured Peter. I'm trying to explore why he turned traitor... I guess until JK Rowling writes his story, we won't know. Carole xxx

Within the Lion's Heart by FannyPrice
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 2]

Summary: Regulus turned his back on the scarlet and gold lion every time he entered the Great Hall. He avoided looking at it, as it was a painful reminder of both the star he was named for and the brother he no longer spoke to . . .If choices make us who we truly are, then he, Regulus Alphard Black, had certainly chosen wrong.? As your about to die, what do you request? What do you regret? What do you remember? One-shot.

Summary: It is not the full moon, nor an alcoholic night gone wrong, nor a day before finals. No. It is the first meeting of junior members of the Order of the Phoenix, and Remus is terrified out of his wits.

A Remus-centric one-shot.
