Life Happens by ColorOfAngels

Rated: 6th-7th Years •
Life Is What Happens When You Are Busy Making Plans.

This is the story of Harry J. Potter and Ginny M. Weasley, their lives, friendships, realtionships and everything in between. Life doesn't always take the road they expect or want, but they soon learn that no matter what they do or how hard they try, the world stops for no man and that simply put, Life Happens.

Primarily Harry/Ginny but with Ron/Hermione background. Picks up after the end of book 5 and continues into Post-Hogwarts.

Love the story, I can't wait to see more. Please update soon!

Meet the - Children? by Winged Artemis

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Lily Evans is a cheeky, brainy, hopeless romantic seventeen-year-old Head Girl with a sour temper. James Potter is an arrogant, hilarious, prank-pulling seventeen-year-old Head Boy with an immature head on his shoulders. Lily loathes James and James loves Lily. Blahblahblah.

However, when a mysterious locket and a very wacked Headmaster inform the two of them that their son is in grave danger, James, Lily, and of course, Sirius, are magically transported to the future to meet James and Lily's son and the state that the magical world is in.

A twist of mystery, fun, romance and some Sirius humor! And with a wee bit of J/L, H/G, and R/Hr!

WARNING: Tree climbing Dumbledores, valuable pieces of jewelry, and an ecess of sugar are contained inside - oh, and HBP is disregarded.

Now we're getting somewhere! I found this from being really creepy and looking at Red Haired Mom's faves list. We had some of the same stories listed, and I was looking for something new. The story idea is so interesting, I had to add it to see where you would take it.

Now I'm hooked. I can't wait until Hermione finds out who they are, I am excited to see if you do any sort of touching moment with Harry and Lily, and some bonding with James. I am assuming that their memories will be obliviated at the end, but it would be so bitter-sweet!

Are they ever going to meet Lupin?
“Lily, could you please pass the carrots?” James asked. Lily nodded impatiently and passed him the bowl.
Was this on purpose?
Can't wait for the next update, as I will be incopasitated for the end of Sep/ beginning of Oct!

Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much! They are going to meet Lupin in a few chapters. I think it will be better for them to meet when they are revealed. And as for your second thing... oops. Thanks for pointing that out! Um... yeah, it was deliberate. I think it\'ll stay, because it\'s too late now! But thank you. I\'ll be much more careful in the future!

Of Christmas Past by Chaser921

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
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?

Dearest Friends by aethershine

Rated: 6th-7th Years •
Summary: While this may at the the outset appear to be a romance fiction about Harry and Hermione, I implore you to look a little deeper. Part One takes place during a dark time in DH. Part two occurs five years later. DH spoilers.

Interesting. I'm not sure how I feel about Harry and Hermione "going all the way" but I am looking forward to part two.

Intertwining Fates by x_lily_evans_x

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: Five people from the different walks of life. One, born of the noble, was pampered; one, born of the dark, was disgraced; one, born of the ordinary, was extraordinary; one was cursed; and one… well, liked cheese.

Five children, five lives. Add five yellowish envelopes with green writing, and their fates are intertwined forever.

This is turing out to be very cute. Are you going to go though all the years, or are you going to skip some?

Author's Response: All. I\'m sure I can find enough events t fil up all seven years! (: I mean, these are the Marauders (and Lily) we\'re talking about. I\'m happy you thought it was rather cute! Thank you for your review!

She prays for their safety, fully aware that Harry could lose everything...

This fic follows Ginny through her sixth year at Hogwarts with exerpts from Deathly Hallows itself.

Great start, keep up the good work. only comment: I'm sure you meant that Harry was only one year old; not that his parents were killed on his birthday (they were killed on Halloween). Update soon!

Author's Response: Oops! Good catch, thanks!

The Cause by Pussycat123

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • Past Featured Story
Summary: Marty Price works for The Cause, which involves several campaigns and petitions on a weekly basis. It has become common knowledge within Hogwarts that if you see her coming towards you with a clipboard, you should turn and walk the other way. Or perhaps deny all grasp of the English language. And if this isn’t eccentric enough, there’s also her obsessive written observations of four boys in her year, which will one day make a rather interesting book ...

Remus Lupin, meanwhile, has always been a little different, too. Poor, sweet Remus Lupin is, to the casual observer, the picture of a sensible, hard working student. However, he has three friends who have done more for him than anyone knows and they have done this because of his troubled past, troubled present and troubled future. Why the gloominess? Because Remus Lupin just so happens to be a werewolf.

So what could these two possibly have in common? And how can their stories possibly connect?

Ah! I was so excited when I got the email that you updated! I love this story! But boo to the cliff hangers! I hope you update soon!

Author's Response: Sorry about those ... But I\'ll try and update as soon as I can! Thanks for waiting!

Reviewer: Gin_Wazlib Signed
Date: 07/21/08 Title: Chapter 16: Fainty McPassOut

Ah, another delicious dose of The Cause.

I believe I felt a bit of a swoon when Remus had the urge to kiss Marty. Very cute and well written.

Have I mentioned that I love the fact that you still have Marty think about her mom? It's nice to see you haven't lost that plot thread in the rest of the story.

As usual, I can't wait for the next one!

Author's Response: Aw, I'm glad you like that, I'm always a tiny but wary of mentioning her Mum, because I don't want people thinking she's just harping on about it all the time. But let's face it, in real life you wouldn't just move on, would you? It always kind of annoyed me when characters died in other fics and they had one mourning chapter and suddenly everything was back to normal. Hmm ... I don't think I've ever made anyone swoon before! New frontiers, eh?

Oh, I can't wait until you can post more! This is so cute. I'm excited to see what comes next!

Author's Response: Well, you may have to wait a little longer than I\'d like, because we still haven\'t got the go ahead to start posting chapters from the mods, but hopefully it will be soon!

Date: 05/21/08 Title: Chapter 13: Paginate

Say yes, Remus ... yes ... yes ... “No.”
That was wonderful! Is it wrong that I kind of wanted them to get a few more punches in? I was so surprised Sirius was so vicious! But it makes for a good story.

Oh, and I hate it when girls act like girls! Haha! Ignoring the boys is going to be hard. I wonder if Marty will realise that she misses Remus more than the others?

Please update soon!

Author's Response: At the minute, the thought of Remus being more special than the others hasn\'t occured, but you never know, do you? I think, living in the family he does, Sirius has a very vicious streak, no matter how hard he tries to get away from it. But he\'s like a naughty puppy, and he will always come back sorry. Even if he never HAS felt truly guilty until now. Thanks for reviewing!

Date: 02/25/08 Title: Chapter 10: Hapless Slytherins

I love it! This is such a cute story! I'm kinda glad the updates are down, otherwise I don't know if I would have found this! You write so well, I have to stop myself from laughing out loud when I'm at work reading it!
I'm sure it's already been addressed, but where was the Lily/Snape/James scene after O.W.L.s? I thought Marty would have witnessed it being so close an observer at the time... oh, well.

My favorite line so far is Remus' "Fifty Nutter Points". LOL! I'm excited for the next chapter, whenever that may be!
~your new faithful reader

Author's Response: Um ... I defintely think I did at least THINK about that scene ... it\'s possible that the story begins soon after it, or it might be mentioned in passing ... or something. I don\'t remember. But I didn\'t want to rewrite that scene properly anyway, since it\'s seen in a lot of other Marauder fics, so I don\'t think I would be able to pull it off and have it remain interesting. I\'m really glad you\'re enjoying the story! Thanks for your kind words, really. =)

Date: 06/09/08 Title: Chapter 14: Very Bohemian

"as we sing the deep, mournful tenor lyrics of self-loathing and sorrow. It will be very bohemian."

Sweet lord, I laughed so hard at that! All my co-workers were starting at me as I giggled through the rest of the chapter. Yes, finally, friends again! But will Remus be ok? He seemes to be pretty damaged from losing Marty...

Author's Response: Aw, he\'ll bounce back under her good influence. If I say so myself, I was particularly proud of the \"Very bohemian\" bit too, which is why I used it as the chapter name. Also, James probably has no idea what bohemian actually means (much like me, come to think of it). So I\'m glad you appreciated that, too. Thanks for reviewing! =D

James taking Luanne fishing?! LOL, I can't wait to hear how that one goes! through another chapter too soon again. Have I told you how much I love this story? As usual, can't wait for the next one!

Author's Response: =D I\'m glad you liked that. For some reason the idea of James adopting a first year is on that appeals to me ... I\'m glad people seem to like it and haven\'t just written me off as some crazy person! As always, thanks so much for reviewing.

Super cute as always. I loved Remus and Marty commentating together. I hate the cliffhangers! Let's see, what could Aunt Tabby want? Help at the store? Be in Tabby and Garfield's wedding? Close the store?
I guess I'll have to wait and find out. I hope you update soon!

Author's Response: =D Even though I gave it to him, the fact that Garfield's name is Garfield always makes me laugh ... anyway. Glad you liked it, sorry about the cliffies and I hope I update soon too!

Aw, only one more chapter?! I'll be happy to know what happens, but sad it'll be over! Thank you for the fast update.

Author's Response: Hey, I wasn't actually expecting it to be as fast as it was! I was surprised! Still, I'm not complaining too much. I'll be sad when it's over too, but thanks for the review.

Kickin' It at the Top by Soap

Rated: 6th-7th Years •
Summary: A Marauder-era fic - this story takes a look at all the characters we've come to love (and hate), as well as an OC or two thrown in for good measure. Follow the Marauders through seven years at Hogwart's, with appearances from the infamous Black sisters, Lucius Malfoy, Regulus Black, and of course the one and only Severus Snape.

There are a bunch of pairings in this story (although romance is not necessarily the central theme) to include James/Lily, Lucius/Narcissa, a splash of Lucius/Bella and unrequited Snape/Lily, and finally, plenty of Sirius/OC. Enjoy!

Over 120,000 reads! Wow! Thanks everyone!

Sad for a short chapter, but if it means faster updates, I guess that's ok. Poor Severus. And I'm assuming you have a great death scene planned out for Anne...
