Take My Heart Away by Hatusu

Rated: 6th-7th Years • Past Featured Story
Summary: Hermione goes back in time with one mission: to kill Tom Riddle before he ever comes to power. A difficult task, correct? An impossible one, she realizes, as a love between them grows stronger than anything she has ever known. Now Hermione has a choice to make. Will she condemn the Wizarding world to almost certain destruction, or will she take the life of the one boy she has ever loved?

Wow that was really good. I read through it in two days, and believe me, that's impressive for me. I have to really love something to do that, and I just adored that. I would go on for hours but my right arm is wrapped up so I'm typing this one-handed. I'll try to leave you the review you deserve when I get to feeling better. Just let me say that the ending was perfect, an awesome time-traveling story with everything appearing rational and everything. The ending was bittersweet, and that's what I love i an ending. Thanks so much for this. It was AWESOME!

I liked this. It was hard to imagine that Severus Snape would ever break done like that -- it seemed out of character, but I really did like the story. You seem to have the same theory as me, that he loved Lily and that's what led him back to Dumbledore's service. Good job!

Preparations by Vindictus Viridian

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: On the night before her wedding, Lily has second thoughts.

Date: 05/17/07 Title: Chapter 1: Of Tea and Brandy

I am speechless--and that doesn't happen to me very often.

But let me say that I absolutely loved it! I believe with all my heart that it's how HP should have been.. I read this, expecting it to end sadly with Severus, but to have Lily leaving James at the altar (oh that is priceless. Imagine the look at that toerag's face!) and having her go to Severus. I feel like I'm going to cry, my word! This is incredible, the best Severus/Lily story I have read.

I do wish you'd write a sequel, because I truly want more. But, for now, I give you a thousand well-dones and a thousand thanks. You made this Severus/Lily shipper's day...week...heck, I can die happy now!

Author's Response: Thanks! I\'m glad you enjoyed it. This little AU sure would mess up the canon story line, though, wouldn\'t it? Oddly enough, I think it was bunnied by dear Slian\'s portrait of Severus with a brandy. Not to mention a lot of writing about both characters.

Draco, The Babysitter by mgle_teacher

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: After a potion goes awry, Draco finds himself as the newly appointed babysitter of one Hermione Granger, age: 4. As if that wasn't humiliating enough, his wand is confiscated by Potter and he is forced to do everything the dreaded Muggle way.

Note to my readers: This story has been on hiatus forever due to a variety of factors. I do hope to finish it some day, but don't hold your breath. Also, this is NOT a Dramione nor will I change it to be one. Lastly, I am in the process of rewriting this story so bear with me.

Did I already review this chapter? I can't remember. Anyways, I really liked this chapter. It wasn't as exciting as some, but background and catching up is very important too, so in the end, I didn't really mind. There's no critique or anything -- it was just a good chapter, and I can't wait to see Draco's reaction to Hermione telling him she loves him.

Update soon please! And thanks for another great chapter *hugs*

Author's Response: Thanks C_A! This is one of those \'boring\' chapters in my mind \'cause I need it to move the story along but the last line is definitely a catalyst to the story I think. XD

When I first saw the summary to this story, I burst into laughter and the story was good too. I reallly enjoyed it and couldn't stop reading (which really is rare for me right now). The characterization is really good for all the characters and lit' Hermione is so adorable. And what's that--- I think I hear the ice on Draco's heart cracking. Children have a way of doing that. I raise my glass to you--you have a good imagination to come up with a story like this. Please, PLEASE post up more.

Author's Response: Thanks for your comments. *squishes* You really flatter me too much. Children definitely have a way of cracking evil people\'s hearts. I shall post as soon as I can

You know, I should probably feel sorry for Harry considering that's the second time in two days he's gotten slugged, but somehow I can't muster up the sympathy. I love the way you characterize Harry, showing him as arrogant, because he always had that side of him and I don't like fanfics that show him as 'perfect'.

This chapter was funny. I loved 'Scorpius the Dragon'. The line 'I think you and I are going to get along just fine now, Granger' was so sweet, but perfectly in character.

Ron's reaction was nice. I really enjoyed it. Overall, another adored chapter. I think your story is the only one I continue to read on this site, just because I'm so busy, but I always find time for your updates.

I do have a couple of things to critique though.

#1: You should really italisize character thoughts, because all of a sudden the story was in third person and then it was in first. I figure out it was Ron thinking to himself pretty quickly, but to avoid taking readers out of the story, you should put italics there.

#2: in the last section you said 'now' instead of 'not', no big deal, just something I caught

#3: I don't think you should refer to Draco as the 'former' Slytherin. He didn't change houses, he's still a Slytherin, even if he isn't still at Hogwarts. 'Once a Slytherin, always a Slytherin'. But that's just my opinion.

Yeah, I know I generally just leave a 'wow, I loved it, update soon' review, but I thought I'd spend a few extra moments giving you a nice long view like you deserved. So, to sum it all up:

I loved it! Please, PLEASE, update soon. (tehe - no seriously, take your time. I'm sure it will be worth waiting for)

Author's Response: Thanks for your thoughtful review. I love to read your reviews (no matter how short), and I\'m so glad that you still read my story regardless of your busy life. XD As for the critique, thank you so much! Lol. I read through the story after it was updated/submitted, and I noticed those same things like the italics, and the now, but haven\'t gotten around to changing it due to my own hectic life. However, I really appreciate it. Thank you. As for Draco, true that! Always a Slytherin. Thanks so much. -hugs- Ritta

Harry Potter and the Last Terrible Vision by DeanaZ

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: This is my take on what might happen in book seven. My take comes with a twist. Harry gets help from an unlikely mentor. She is both a Slytherin and a Malfoy! I have extended this chapter in order to develop her character as requested by the Mods. I wanted to share my thoughts on what might have happened to Lily's parents. Why were they dead? I needed to edit the warnings because chapters nine and ten are about the war and a major character dies. I'm sorry if I have caused any confusion.

congratulations on getting it all up! I can't wait to see more from you! This was a good start and you can only approve. Don't stop writing, not if it's something you really love. Thanks for letting me beta this. I enjoyed working with you!

Author's Response: I just hope others feel the same way you do, otherwise, I just feel like I\'m waisting the Mods\' time. I know this sounds corny, but I really feel honored that I got a story up here on this site. I feel like this is the closest to getting accepted by JK Rowling\'s site itself. I checked some of the members who named this story as one of their favorites and I\'m up there with all the \"heavy hitters\": Melindaleo, Sukr4romance, Mudblood428, Secret Lily, Sparx. I feel like I was accepted into a US International Open for HP Fanfic. Even if I didn\'t place at the top, I still got to swim with the big fish. How many others can say that?!

A Missing Moment from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and a submission for the “Spring Challenge: A Different Viewpoint” by megan_lupin of Gryffindor.
Reviewer: C_A_Campbell Signed
Date: 06/04/07 Title: Chapter 1: Not Again

well, just thought I'd leave a review, because you deserve ite, even though I already told ya my thoughts.

First off, this is the first story I read, that I actually liked Sirius. I'm one of the few people who normally dislikes this character. But, in this, I actually felt sorry for him.

I loved the relationship between Lupin and Padfoot, because we don't see much of this in the books, but I always imagined it would be something like this.

The writing and characterzation was wonderful; both serve to build up the atmosphere of the story.

I also love the part with Snape. You managed to pull it off so that neither Snape or Sirius looked like an idiot so neither Snape nor Sirius lovers would be irritated by the scene.

You pulled this entire story off remarkably well. I can see a scene like this happening; a missing piece of canon. I really enjoyed this and I looked forward to some free time when I'll be able to read some more of your works.

And, yeah, I think that was all I was going to say, except, keep up the good work.


Author's Response: Oh, it\'s my beta! Squee! I\'m so glad that you came to leave a review; it\'s such a good review, too.

I\'m so glad to hear that you thought the Snape and Sirius bit turned out all right. It was the part I was worried about the most, mainly because I always want to go pro-Sirius and anti-Snape. I\'m thrilled to hear that it didn\'t read that way!

Thank you so much for the comments, Chante. You were a great beta for this story, too!


Neville Longbottom and the Philosopher's Stone by Sonorus

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: "Yes Neville," said Dumbledore, "it was Voldemort who came to your parentsí house that night nearly ten years ago. It was Voldemort who killed them. And it was Voldemort who then turned his wand on you.Ē

The ultimate 'what if?'. What if Voldemort had chosen Neville rather than Harry as the boy meant by the prophecy? What if Neville was the Boy-Who-Lived and Harry was the "might have been"?

Join Neville as he faces some familiar and less familiar challenges of his first year at Hogwarts in the first of an epic seven story series mirroring the original novels.

Story now complete. Book 2 is on its way!

Ooooh, Snape. I love Snape, and you did a good job in characterization - though I'm slightly confused on where this is going. He was hard on Harry which mean he still hates Snape. But shouldn't he love Neville's mum? Because the whole thing of the sacrifice protection on Harry was because Lily chose to die instead of live and she only had that choice because of Snape. I know this was probably written pre-DH but I'm still really confused on how it will turn out. Oh well, nothing left to do but keep reading. Good job, I really like this story.

Author's Response: This was written pre-DH (as was all of my PS, DH came out between me finishing PS and beginning COS), but I think my version of Snape\'s storyline still works out. Rule No. 1 for this fic is that everything that happened pre Voldemort\'s choice of Neville over Harry (in mid 1981) remains canon. So Snape still loved Lily and has no interest in Alice Longbottom (That is of course why he is still mean to Harry). I have come up with a (I hope) plausible reason why Voldemort offered to spare Alice, but I don\'t know when it will be revealed (maybe not until my DH). It has nothing to do with Snape, however. Snape\'s story over the course of this series will differ (starting in GOF) and his loyalties will even further be called into question. After DH came out, I had to sit down and plan out all of Snape\'s story very carefully and I think it has the potential to be one of the highlights of the second half of the series. I hope you\'re still reading when we get there...

Another wonderful chapter. You taught some wise lessons via Dumbledore. I loved it. I'm sorry I can't say much more than that I really enjoyed it, but take the fact that I found nothing to critique as a compliment. I will continue to read when I find time.

Author's Response: Thank you! I remember finding Dumbledore hard to pull off when I wrote this chapter (I think I\'ve got better at him since). But it\'s such a crucial chapter to set up everything that follows. If I wrote it again now it would probably be a little longer, but all the key points are there.

I've been meaning to read this story from the moment I saw it's title first appear in the new stories but I never got around to it. Same on me. I've always wanted what would have happened if it had been Neville and not Harry who had been the boy who lived, and thanks to this, we'll soon find out.

At first I was afraid that since this was AU, that it might not be the Neville that I know in love, but as I had hoped, you captured his personality beautifully. And you captured the grandmother's as well. Details were good, and everything was simply wonderful. I can't wait to read the next part of this part of the story!

Merry Christmas from your fellow 'Claws!

Author's Response:

Wow, a review for PS! I haven\'t had one of these for a while. Thank you!

I don\'t like AU fics where AU is just an excuse to change a character\'s personality or ignore some bit of canon the author doesn\'t like. To me the best AU fics (and there are several on this site) take one big \'what if\' question and play it out retaining the characters\' personalities as close as possible. Otherwise it has no link to canon. These fics aren\'t so much about a different story as how a different personality (Neville\'s) reacts to the same situations.

Anyway, glad you liked it and I hope you\'re able to keep reading all the way through to early PoA, where I\'m up to at present. Merry Christmas to you too, and Go Ravenclaw!

Date: 01/02/08 Title: Chapter 8: The Seeker and the Secret

hm...nice chapter, but I think Neville's character was off. He suddenly started acting like Harry. He's usually a lot more quiet, and I think he would hesitate before jumping to conclusions (jumping to conclusions is Harry's trait). I think he would do a lot of thinking of 'maybe I'm imagining things' and then after the incident at Quidditch he would think that maybe he was right. But then he would still be thinking 'no one would believe me even if I did make my suspicions known'. Hermione should have done all the questioning at Hagrid's, because Neville is a very quiet and timid boy. He just suddenly got comfortable in his own skin and all of it just screamed 'Harry'. So yeah... I still want to keep reading though. I like this story.

Author's Response: Yeah, you\'re right, Neville shouldn\'t jump to conclusions and he probably is a bit off here. I think my COS Neville is a bit better, especially when he plays off against Harry and you can compare the two. The trouble is of course that someone has to think Snape is responsible, or the plot doesn\'t work, and it\'s unlikely to be Hermione, who is the only other option I have at this stage. In these stories I\'m constantly pitting Neville\'s reluctant nature against the needs of the plot. Harry\'s natural reaction to any crisis is to do something, even if it\'s the wrong thing. Neville\'s natural reaction is to do nothing. Sometimes I feel I have to get Neville into situations in spite of himself, and it\'s probably at those times he slips out of character and becomes more Harry-like. Hopefully it doesn\'t happen too often. I hope you like \'Reflections\', I think it\'s one of my best chapters of PS.

How to Hold Sway by lucilla_pauie

Summary: What if Hermione was in Slytherin? Would things have changed?

I donít think so.

She would be a Slytherin Princess, still as golden, only more cunning and less conventional.

Date: 11/16/07 Title: Chapter 1: Still as golden

I thought it was pretty good. I actually can't believe I sat down and read this when I should have been writing in NaNoWiriMo -- but it was interesting anyways. I always thought Hermione had a touch of Slytherin in her -- she always was a ambitious as one and had the potential to be as cunning. I liked how you brought that out of her. Also, I like how the Slytherins hated her because she was a Muggleborn, but still managed to be fond of her. I think that it might be different if there was an actual Muggleborn in Slytherin, but for this story you made it work. I liked how to interwoved things into canon -- and that last line with Ron was cute.

But I still have a lot of questions left over that easily could have been answered if you'd added a bit more detail. 1: I have no idea why Draco was at Grimmauld Place, or what time the scene took place (before or after the last battle), or why Draco was there? I'm just really confused. And what happened with the spell that Hermione cast on Draco's wand? Since he didn't use it, it didn't do anything. Wouldn't she use that to prove Draco's innocence? And were you trying to imply that because she had cast the spell, that was why he didn't kill Dumbledore?

2: I have no idea if this was supposed to be Draco/Hermione or Hermione/Ron -- because you sort of hinted at both. That thing isn't really as important, but I was just confused because I expected a bit more during the last part that would show, if put in Slytherin, which person Hermione would end up with.

Besides the many questions I still have, it was good--an interesting look at a Slytherin Hermione. Good job.


Author's Response: Wow, Chante, thank you so much for this! I\'m so glad.

Now, to your questions.

1. Draco was in Grimmauld Place because he had decided to take Dumbledore\'s last words of advise.

He had decided to take his mother with him to sanctuary with the Order. There is enough fanon about how he could do this...*wink*

And the Incantation Protean Charm-- \"were you trying to imply that because she had cast the spell, that was why he didn\'t kill Dumbledore?\"

Yes, exactly, hon. *SPOILER ALERT!* Hermione had threatened she would turn her wand (which would imitate Draco\'s AK) on herself if Draco performs the AK, you see. Isn\'t that so conniving and manipulative? Hehe.

2. After the Challenge, I moved this to Draco/Hermione. But now it is in Alternate Universe, because after a reread, I too, saw my double hints. *giggles* Shows how Hermione is such a loved creature. For a Slytherin.

Author's Response: Again, thanks so much, Chante! I love in-depth reviews, like Chris\'s below. *huggles*

Author's Response: Oh Godric, and to take your NaNo time! ^_^ ~Joanna

Author's Response: Oh and when Draco came to GP, this is soon after Dumbledore\'s death, way before the last battle. See, each \'tip\' chronicles a book. \'Don\'t gloat\' is my Book Seven nugget. :)

Wow - that was...amazing.

I adore Severus - he's my favorite character - and I've always known that to be asked to kill Dumbledore would have been sheer torture for him, and you put that into words perfectly. I loved the beginning of this - adored it in fact. The narration was beautiful, and the details were potent. You showed an awesome understanding of a part of human nature.

Characterization was spot on. I loved this line: It was a look of the purest empathy and it frightened me more than anything has frightened me before. It was so much the way that he would have viewed empathy and pity - hating it, because it scared him.

In short, this piece was outstanding.

The only two pieces of criticism I had was once you said thy instead of they and I don't think Severus would have thought that everyone was horrible, because of Lily. She had been wonderful, and I think you could have mentioned that a little more (I know Dumbledore hinted at it, but Severus should have thought it). But seeing how Lily's gone, I can still see him as viewing the world the way you described him viewing it.

To sum it up, I loved this story. It captured Severus potently and I absolutely adore it. Wonderful job!
