The Sweetest Sin by annie

Rated: Professors •
Summary: In the years following Voldemort's victory in the second war, Muggle-borns must become slaves and servants to pure-bloods in order to survive. Over time, Hermione Granger has learned to suppress her pride and independence in households where she is considered lower than dirt. She thought she would be prepared for this new family, just like she was for all the previous ones. What she didn't know was that this new family was none other than Draco Malfoy's. Will she manage hold up when she finds herself struggling to withhold her sharp tongue, returning hatred, and...something else?

The last chapter of this story has been posted! Thanks for reading :)

Um, I'm sorry, everyone seems to love this fanfiction, but I personally don't think it's very well written. The emotions and feelings of the characters swing from one spectrum to the other from chapter to chapter. The plot is weak. And in the epilogue? Hermione really doesn't see the kids for 10 years? And she's still pining after Draco? Plus, why didn't Draco just Apparate away from his house when he had the chance, before anyone realized what had happened?

A Few Detentions and A Story by LaneTechFreshie

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: James Potter: Marauder. Lily Evans: Prefect. They're both seventh years at Hogwarts. They're also about to have a pretty interesting year--complete with a few detentions, pranks, confusion, and laughter--in which they get through school, make some trouble and maybe, just maybe, sort out their feelings for each other.

Thanks to all you who have made it possible for this story to be in the Top Tens. It was a very happy moment when I first saw my story on the list, and I love being able to go back and see it there now. Still. Yay!

Throughout the latter half of 2010, and the first half of 2011, I re-edited this story. The changes were mostly to fix stray (and annoying) grammar and spelling errors, but also to rework some plot points in an effort to stay truer to canon. I also updated the style; having written this story so long ago, my writing has definitely developed (and I would say gotten better), so I edited to reflect that. (I apologize for the errors that were in the story before all this editing. I found them immensely distressing when I reread my chapters. Heartbreaking, really.)

Big “thank yous” go to the three people who helped edit/nitpick the first edition of this novel: violagirl, fairiesandcream, and Omagus.
And yes, this story is up on Fanficition.net under the penname: Io.Sono.Emilia.
Of course, as a disclaimer, I’m not JK Rowling. The Potterverse does not belong to me, but I am in it and love it.

Great chapter, but just so ya know, William Goldman didn't abridge S. Morgenstern's story. There is no S. Morgenstern. William Goldman wrote the whole book by himself, both the modern part and part with Buttercup and Westley, and pretended it was an abridgement. lol.

Author's Response: Haha. Did he really? I remember some one telling me that S. Morgenstern didn\'t really exist. Huh. Oh well. It\'s still a graet book! :-)

Awww im glad lily and james are back together! But shouldnt lily figure out layla was a siren, so she doesnt blame james at all?

Author's Response: I think Lily does learn that Layla is a siren. James states it, sorta. he says \"I think she\'s a siren, or something like that\" in the previous chapter, doesn\'t he? I think he does.

Dear Fans,

I know that I have not been on Mugglenet FanFic in SEVERAL months and I am sorry. These past months and year have been so crazy, hectic, and frustrating there has been no time for DD. I am sad to tell that I will not be finishing DD unless a random amount of freetime appears.
Instead of leaving my fans to a cliff-hanger, I might be writing an ending chapter to summarize how I planned to finish DD. I am so sorry for all my fans! I appreciate your time in reading and reviewing- you guys are wonderful! 200 reviews! Thanks to my fans!

A Sleepwalk to Remember by Lady Knightly

Rated: 6th-7th Years •
Summary: For once in her life, Hermione is faced with a problem she does not know how to solve...
Reviewer: hlf_insn_insmnc Signed
Date: 05/19/08 Title: A Sleepwalk to Remember

I'd just like to tell you how much I like this story. It has the wonderful capacity to make myself not be absolutely repulsed by a Snape/Hermione romance.
Wow. That came out wrong.
What I meant to say is that usually, I'm a ship kind of girl, but your story has been doing such a good job of making this couple realistically possible without them being OOC.
Oh, and your visual images are amazing--like, when you give something going on inside a character a concrete image (like the latch closing inside Snape or the rope snapping inside Hermione, to name a few).
Good work! :D
Please update!

Author's Response: yaaaay! i\'m so so happy to hear that you are enjoying it and that my writing does not turn you away from such an awesome ship :D :D this was a very awesome review and thank you so much for reading!! :D :D

The Epic Tale of the Hogwarts Food-fight by Gin_Drinka

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: "Some mistakes are too much fun to make just once."

After Lily Evans, Head Girl of Hogwarts, starts a food-fight with James Potter, Head Boy of Hogwarts, they are both given detention for the rest of the year, and are assigned a 'detention journal', which the staff say will help to settle their 'overwhelming and disturbing differences'. We have come across Lily's journal; her take on why the whole affair ever started, her intriguing relationship with one ‘supreme git of the galaxy’, the extents to which she will go for revenge and where it will lead her...

"And if for some unknown reason you come across this, Potter, and the paragraph above does not manage to penetrate your unusually thick head and convince you of my stupendous dislike of you, I hope the following sentence helps: I HATE YOU!"

Opposites Attract - A James/Lily Story by radcliffe4eva

i love how u made lily a fox!! thats so cool! and please, please, please, make lily and seth break up soon!! the fact that lily and james arent together is driving me crazy!!! lol.

Author's Response: Why thank you! I was hoping people would be okay with Lily being an Animagus. Apologies, but Lily and Seth are going to be together for a while longer - and the next chapter is probably going to bug you a bit too. But I promise, the wait will be worth it! James and Lily\'s relationship is like wine - it\'s ripened with time. Okay, that was kind of weird, forgive me. Either way, when Lily and James do get together, it will be fluffy - eventually. I\'ll leave you to ponder that... :-)

Cutting Down His Shadow by patelnotpatil

Rated: Professors •
Summary: Meera Rupali Chanduramani has had the media in her face since the day she was born, seeing as she is the daughter of the most feared wizard of the century. However, her values are not the same as her fathers and she wants the world to know. Follow her journey through Hogwarts - classes, Quidditch, romance - and see how she manages to break away from the image as "the princess of evil" - how she manages to cut down the shadow her father cast over her life.

Higher rating for some issues mentioned in later chapters.

I swear I have not abandoned this fic. It's hard to write because I have so much work to do in college, but I'm writing the chapter little by little as time goes on. I may not be able to upload it until after the hacker problems with MNFF are fixed, but know that this story is still alive and kicking. I am NOT leaving Meera. No way.
Love you all!

Author's Response: Haha, yay! Someone gets the Oedipus reference! You have no idea how happy that makes me. I figured, hey, Draco was a Greek legislator, so Draco\'s son can be a Greek king! I\'m glad you like the story, thanks so much for the support!

Click! by Pussycat123

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Before Harry’s fifth year at Hogwarts, he is shown a group photo of the original Order of the Phoenix, back when it was his parents fighting against Voldemort.

But a photo doesn’t show their lives, their personalities, their every day conversations ... or how much organising can be needed to take one single photograph when you have a room full of people – especially when four of whom liked to call themselves “Marauders” back in their school days ...

Hogwarts Houses Divided by Inverarity

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • Past Featured Story

Teddy Lupin's first year at Hogwarts. Canon-compliant. Nominated for a 2008 QSQ for best Post-Hogwarts story.

The war is over, and all is well, they say, but the wounds remain unhealed. Bitterness divides the Houses of Hogwarts. Can the first children born since the war's end begin a new era, or will the enmities of their parents be their permanent legacy?

this story was so good.
and i usually don't give praise like that lightly.
i loved loved loved all the different characters--it wasn't just the standard 'yay were griffindors!' bunch. and the plot was well developed throughout the entire thing, especially regarding the inter-house tensions.
i also adore the four main characters, and i honestly couldn't pick which one was my favorite.
i started this story yesterday and couldn't quit. i was hooked.
please please please write a sequel!
really--this is one of the best and most unique fanfictions ive ever read, and i will definitely always remember it.
thank you!
