Bio:
It seems like time to update this. As you'll be able to see, i have been around for quite awhile, i tend to just read, and become absorbed in all of the spin-offs and tales. Although i have in the distant past attempted to write something, and i shall never fully rule out the possibility of repeating that.

I'm a Geordie, and usually proud of it, i love the world, have a very Romantic idea of myself, plan on avoiding the real working world for as long possible, and happen to periodically despise the fact that i am not, after all, Harry Potter.

Summary: The war is on and the only person with the power to stop Voldemort's second reign of terror is sulking alone in a cold, dark room. The unexpected arrival of an old school chum in Privet Drive jolts him to action, however, as Harry begins his most exciting year at Hogwarts. Year 6 will include a visit to the ancient village of Godric's Hollow; a first hand account of the 1000 year old quarrel that ripped Hogwarts apart; a Fred and George-style farewell to a certain ex-Minister of Magic; and the discovery of the Half-Blood Prince, a mysterious figure who holds the key to winning the war...


(And, as J.K. says, what's life without a little romance?)

it is about to make me cry! Brilliant!

 

Summary: After the trauma of his sixth year Harry and his friends enter into their last year of magical education at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The trio try to balance passing their exams with fighting Voldemort and planning their futures. Despite all that, romance will fill the air with wedding bells ringing out. This year Harry is in more danger than ever when his enemy finds new ways to try and get the Boy Who Lived. Voldemort’s presence will be felt more than ever as he steals more lives; can Harry find himself before its too late? And what adventures will he have along the way?

If you haven’t read Harry Potter and The Girl Who Lived then I would strongly urge you to do so because if you don’t then this story probably won’t make any sense to you. Be helpful to writers by Reading and Reviewing!

The very last chapter of this fic has been reworked. Please re-read there's more about the kids in there! Also my author's notes on the final chapter have also been added. Ten part fic related to this going up shortly!!

Sirius: The Black Knight by Pussycat123
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 378]

Summary: Sirius was killed by Bellatrix. When he lands headlong at his dead best friend’s feet, he is a little perplexed. All is soon explained, however. He has reached Heaven, and James is here to welcome him. Before he can begin to get used to life in Heaven, he must first “watch his life” on the large screen in front of him, because it will help him understand things better. And so, that’s what he does. From the very beginning, to the very end. You too, can follow him through the ups and downs. Follow him through the highs and the lows. Follow him through the laughter, the pain, and the romance. Follow him through the story of his life. This fic is a tribute to Sirius Black. It is not all marauder-era, although a bulk of it is, and that is why it’s in this category.

Summary: Chapter Thirty-Eight in Queue!

They say someday your life will flash before your eyes...

The Marauders. The name alone strikes fear into the hearts of teachers and makes girls swoon. Watch as Sirius, who has always kept his emotions locked up in a box, finally finds the girl that has its key; as James masterminds everything, except how to win over the girl of his dreams; as Remus finds love, but learns it's just as hard to keep it going, and as Peter tries to prove he's just as good as the other four, no matter what he has to do. They're unstoppable, and it's safe to say that once they're gone, Hogwarts will never be the same again.

...let's make ours worth watching.

Beyond the Prophecy by the_bartender713
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 287]

Summary: Oh, I'll tell you a tale of a sainted wizard, of his friends and their adventures in store. And I'll tell you a tale of an evil wizard, of the decimated world torn apart by his war.


But be warned, I say, think not far ahead. For where you might see gain, loss may be instead.


Heavily run the theories and conclusions dreamt out of whims, but know that what you hope lies most likely not within.


She's written the words, and told the lot of trials, tribulations, and soul-eating rot.


But I won't tell you how, and I won't tell you when. Just know your illustrious Bartender has done it yet again


What lies Beyond the Prophecy and Harry Potter's life- who knows? Only the exalted one, Merlin, and the one who writes.

*Quote from The Epilogue*

Suddenly Harry was kissing her as if he couldn’t resist the temptation. There was a kind of frenzy to the kiss at first, a kind of desperate need, but it melted into something soft and sweet and gentle, a promise of a future when kisses would never be limited. When they broke apart he rested his forehead on hers, sprinkling a few affectionate butterfly kisses across her face. “I love you,” he murmured.

Amazing. An absolutely amazing end. Utterly fantastic. I don't [i]think[/i] i've ever reviewed this before, but it has always been probably my favourite ever future fic, and i have been following it for quite a while.

You have never failed to impress me with this story, the wonderful little devices which you created,the reverse portkey and the time travelling potion being two, have made the universe of this story your own, while the plot elements were woven together in a way which seemed effortlessly believable.

The way in which you 'redeemed' Petunia was incredible too, the changes which came over her were brilliantly handled, and her meeting with Vernon at the end was wonderfully poignant.

Favourite bits then, the jail escape scene was rather excellent, the whole Harry and Ron imprisoned bit actually. While i think the very start was wonderful. Intriguing and mysterious, i was hooked from reading the summary.

On a final note, Paul McCartney, legend..

Well done, you have had me captivated for several years. Time for a re-read i think. :)

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I love it when reviewers take the time to leave specific details as to what they like about a story. It is much appreciated! Often I don't review a story until the end either, and I'm glad you finally did leave a review. It's good to know that people enjoyed reading the story over the YEARS as much as I did writing it! ;) I always thought that Petunia would play a bigger role in the final Harry Potter book, and I when I orginally started this story it was due to inspiration from J.K. Rowling saying that a Muggle in the seventh book would use magic. Obviously she decided to cut that plot line, but I think it probably would have been Petunia. What other candidate was there? I also like to think that some time Petunia would come to her senses about Lily and Harry, and its good to know that you think I handled her redemption well! Thanks again.

Of Christmas Past by Chaser921
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 542]

Summary: Harry, Ron, Hermione and Ginny find themselves in a Muggle hotel in Godric's Hollow on the Winter Solstice. During an enthusiastic snowball fight, Harry and Ginny step through a stone circle that transports them seventeen years into the past. This may be the only chance Harry has to spend with his parents, and it may also be what he needs to figure out his relationship with Ginny.


The warning is for later chapters.



Edit: So, this was originally strictly a Harry/Ginny fic, but Ron and Hermione kept trying to get together too, so I felt like I had to change the category. And there's a bit of Lily/James in there too, though they're already married, and I've also added a bit of Remus/Tonks. Poor Sirius is the only Singleton (though he may manage to get a girl of his own)!


Edit: This story was cannon until after Deathly Hallows came out, so I changed it to Alternate Universe, but it's still pretty close to cannon. Only a few things will end up being different when the story ends.



Edit: I've changed all of the chapter titles to the titles of Christmas songs that I felt reflected the events in the chapters best. Tell me what you think! Does it fit?

Summary:

2009 QSQs: Runner-up: Best Romance - Other Character Story


Add together one ladies' man, one Quidditch player, one werewolf, and one soon-to-be traitor. Then, mix in one imaginative idiot, one fiery redhead, one clever Ravenclaw, and one blonde artist. Stir counterclockwise until trouble occurs, and you are dealing with one of the best-loved group of friends in Hogwarts history. Follow the story of the four Marauders and four equally troublesome girls. See them deal with their first encounters of love, sorrow, heartache… and Death Eaters. How will these future Order members cope with the ordeals that life throws at them? Will love blossom in what was once thought a highly unlikely place? What do you do when the person you care about most in the world doesn’t seem to notice you at all? Will a well-kept secret shatter the foundations of a seven-year friendship? Follow the lives of these friends through their last year at school to the dramatic final battle with Lord Voldemort two decades later.

Warnings are for later chapters, and any sexual situations are very minor.

Chapter Twenty Two: "The Snakes Strike" is in the queue. Excerpt:

Perfume filled his nostrils as Emma walked passed and Rosier’s gaze lingered on her bare, pale legs as the group headed outdoors. “Don’t you just love summer?” he inquired of Regulus, a hungry sneer lighting his face.

“This is ridiculous,” Regulus announced in a furious whisper, “we’re never going to get them alone!”

“Have faith, Black,” commanded Rosier smoothly. “Girls are well renowned for their desire for girly chats. I’m sure they’ll slip off the shackles of their chaperones soon enough.”
