New Azkaban by Hutchinson

Rated: 6th-7th Years • 55 Reviews
Summary: It's been several years since the war, where some died... and some barely came out alive. Azkaban was destroyed, Dementors banished, and a New Azkaban erected in its place. Hermione is in her twenties now, a Guardian of New Azkaban, where she meets someone very unexpected in the dark.

That is so sad. Your really good at bringing out the emotions of the story. I almost cried though. How could Ginny do such a thing. And Ron is dead *cry*
What will happen next? I shall read on! (I am still clutching onto my desk, this story is seriously brilliant and my heart is beating real fast. omg I must read on!!!)

Author's Response: Don't cry! Ginny was stuck in a moment of shock, grief, and anger all at once... and she reacted very badly. In a chapter or two, I'll start to let on where Harry, Ginny, Neville, and some of the other major characters are now.

please continue this story (pretty pleese with a cherry on top!) I really love it! Oh yeah a question: In this new askaban world where is Ginny and what does she do? And also one last question: Can Hermione see? With the white eye? Keep writing coz your really good at it!
-Raffles

Author's Response: I'm still labouring over the next chapter, and I promise I'm continuing it! It's my favourite story to work on! Very good questions, by the way... questions that I'll answer in the next few chapters. I can't say where Ginny is yet, but you'll find out. Hermione can definitely see with her white eye, and the next chapter should start to display the uniqueness of it.



Maybe Happiness? by anath

Rated: 6th-7th Years • 17 Reviews
Summary: After that fateful Halloween, Remus Lupin is left to deal with the shattered pieces of his life - a life without his friends in it. He doesn't expect that he would have to deal with Caine Black, too... and neither does he expect to have to deal with a young, attractive woman, who has obviously decided that he is meant for her. A sequel to The Final Choice. Slightly AU.

ooh, happy up-coming birthday and congratulations on another great first chapter! I really like his story and I cant wait for the next chapter. I think this is one of your best stories because I just love the mystery in it. Its really cool how it all fits with your other story 'the final choice'. I think that u have a real talent. Please update real soon!
-Raffles

Author's Response: Hey, thanks for both your liking of my story and your congratulations. You may want to check the site in another day or two - I\'ve got a new Sirius/Angela story and the second chapter of I Am Here in the queue.\r\n\r\n

My suspicion has been proven! YOUR J.K ROWLING IN DISGUISE!!! aren't you?
this chapter was simply AMAZING!!!!! It was also really sad. *wipes away tear drop* I can't believe that Angela died. Through all these chapters I was hoping that she would live, and that everything would turn better. But that's just me and my naiveness. I think that the descriptions of Caines reactions to everything is written perfectly. You really hammered the kind of thing that little kids would do.“I don’t want you,” Caine said hoarsely. “I want Mummy and Daddy.” That line was written really great because that is probably what a kid would do. It made me feel so bad for Remus when he said it though. I think that the way you write and structure your sentences os really Brilliant. Isabelle, this is Remus Lupin. Remus – Isabelle Delacour.”That line just made me 'gasp'. Is she by any chance related to fleur? Another line that I felt was really powerful in this chapter was "Any minute now..." I think that really captures the pain that Angela was in at that moment. It was so sad when Caine seemed to understand what was going on. I could really picture the fear in that little kids eyes. That's another thing that I really like about your stories: You write them so well that I can picture everything perfectly.
Please update real soon. I LOVE this story
-Raffles

Author's Response: You caught me. Yes, I am J.K. Rowling. I thought I was so good at hiding it... I felt bad, when I kileed Angela, too, I was very fond of her. But don\'t feel too bad about Caine. He\'ll get better... eventually. I promise!

hi there,
wow this was a really brilliant chapter. I just loved how it was both sad, mysterious and there was even some humor woven into it. I really love your style of writing and I think that this chapter shows your style a lot. I really love it. I think that the idea of this fan fiction is excellent and I love the story line. I also really like your Remus. He's so ... well remusy. lol. There are a lot of fan fictions who have got Remus all wrong but this Remus in this story is my favorite Remus. I also love Caine (I know, i've said that about a million times but still...) I cant wait for the next chapter. I wonder what will happen in this story.
*smiles* GREAT! Job
-Raffles
(Oh yeah, thanks for mentioning me in chapter notes ^^.)

Author's Response: Well, thank you. Remus also thanks you (my Remus, not Jo\'s!)

awwww
that was sooooooo sweeet!!! I loved that chapter. I think that it is was one my favorite chapters in this whole site. It was both mysterious, sad and funny. I also congratulate you on creating another new character. Raymond is such a sweet and thoughtful man. I think that he would be a perfect father figure and I can imagine him with all of his children. Also, this chapter made me feel all warm inside. Births of baby's always make me feel fluffy but I just loved the time when Caine cries out "I like him" and "Remus he liked me too" That was sooo cute.
Also the ending "Maybe it could work" That was a great way to end the chapter! But I do have a question. Maybe you've mentioned something about this before and I was just too stupid to notice it but does Remus live in a Muggle apartment? Does he have a television. Because Caine watches 'cartoons' or is it one of a magical enhanced program for wizard kids? Anyway this is a really great story. YOU ROCK!!!
Well done and I cant wait for the next chapter. I love this story!

Author's Response: Hi again! Yes, Remus lives in a Muggle apartment - the one that Raymond and Sylvie had lived, when they had only one child and before moving to France. And the television is a Muggle one - after all, Remus\' mother is a Muggle and I suppose that he must be acquainted with Muggle devices.\r\nI am personally flattered that you like my new character. I like Raymond too. He can be very nice and thoughtful, when he wants to. I adored writing the baby part.

i loved this chapter . It's so sad :(
Did the evil orphanage people hit Caine?
I can't believe that Julian (I really like that name) is blind. I think that you added that brilliantly to the story as it makes the story more exciting, though I still feel bad for Julian.
I thought it was very clever of you to add your name to the story. made me giggle. lol
I still LOVE your style of writing. This story is amazing!
Please update really really soon. I can't Wait till the next chapter!
-Raffles

Author's Response: Well, you\'ll have to wait and see. \r\nAs I told the previous reviewer, I warned that there will be damages for the baby, in The Finak Choice, remember? I feel bad for him, though.\r\nAnath is the name of an ancient war goddess. I\'ve always loved it.\r\nMy nose keeps growing at amazing speed.*grin*



I Am Here by anath

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • 6 Reviews
Summary: Harry could not help but think that, judging by the way George and Ron were looking at each other, he and the Weasleys would be lucky, if they wouldn’t have to rush one of them - or both of them – to St. Mungo’s the next morning.
Reviewer: Raffles Signed

Yay, im the first reviewer (unless someone beet me to it in the last second)
oooh, this chapter is quite dark but its still really well written. I think that its really well thought out and I love the idea. I wonder what will happen next. I can already tell that this will be a great story. Its quite sad as Fred is dead an well Fred was one of my favorite charaters but I think that this story is really great as it shows the lives of them afterwards with not such a happy ending. I cant wait for more!
-Raffles

Author's Response: Yeah, it couldn\'t have been such a happy ending, at least not in the beginning. Thanks for reviewing!



Reviewer: Raffles Signed
Date: 05/18/08 Title: Chapter 2: Chapter 2

awww, that was such a sweet chapter. It made me feel all warm inside. I loved the way that George and Ron's brotherly love got them to stop fighting. I think that you ended this story brilliantly. My favorite line was “No need of that, Harry,” George said calmly, smiling. “I am already here.” that was so sweet.
smiles^^ -Raffles

Author's Response: To tell you the truth, that was my favorite line, too. Thanks!

Why Ravenclaw? by anath

hi there,
i didnt have internet acsess for quite a while and wow! you have three more stories written! thats amazing. i really like this story a lot. we dont get to see much of the hat in the books but you really caght the hats personality (if a hat can have a personality)
its also good to hear more about angela (now's shes dead and all :( ). Also I love the way u had sirius and angela trick and fight each other. its funny that they get together in the end.
a great story !
-Raffles

Author's Response: Sorry for not answering in time, I had loads of things to do. I am glad to know that you've enjoyed my story. I loved writing both the Hat and Angela!



Meeting Teddy by anath

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 9 Reviews
Summary: Teddy Lupin is miserable. He has just become accustomed to James' arrival and now there are two more babies on the way! What happens, when Harry and Ginny lose sight of him in the street? Who s he going to meet?
Reviewer: Raffles Signed
Date: 07/19/08 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

:)
what i really like about this story is the way you described everything. it almost felt like i was there and i could actually see teddy's sad expretion.
i loved the way everyone came to teddy in the end and crowded and worried about him.
i think that the ending was really great. maybe there will be a sort of friendship between teddy, narcissa and astoria.
and maybe now astoria gets along with narcissa a bit better. it would be great to hear more about this story, for example when narcissa and astoria go shopping for teddy or teddy's birthday party.
my favorite part of this story is the monolouge that teddy has near to the begining of the story. he really spills out his thoughts.
great job!
-Raffles

Author's Response: Yeah, poor Teddy, I felt bad for him too.



Not Quite Hatred by anath

Rated: 6th-7th Years • 6 Reviews
Summary: Looking back years later, he could see that it was that night that had first made him start paying attention to Astoria Greengrass.
Reviewer: Raffles Signed
Date: 07/19/08 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

i think that you did a great job of describing a decent slytherin. it really shows that not all slytherins are bad and evil. she would have been one of the slytherins that came back to fight (or did they all come back?)
I liked the way malfoy was reminded of hermoine granger when he saw astoria.
i think that astoria is a great character. she can be very kind like in meeting teddy and she can really stand up for people, like her sister, even though she sint that storong. i'd like to hear more about her.
another thing i liked in this story was the way malfoy described crabbe and goyle and their 'food preferences'
another great story!
-raffles

Author's Response: Yeah, Crabbe and Goyle and their 'food preferences' was cute, but then again, it was obvious. I mean, come on, all we know about those two is that they are big, fat and constantly hungry! I'm glad you like my Astoria. Thanks for reviewing!

The Kiss that Never Happened by Midnight_Unicorn

Summary: Hermione looks back and reflects on what could have been. A poem based on the scene in the GoF movie right after the second task.
Reviewer: Raffles Signed
Date: 08/20/08 Title: Chapter 1: The Kiss That Never Happened

This is the second time i have read this poem and it still strikes me with such emotion. You really described everything so beautifully. It's really great to see another version and idea about harry potter. Before this poem i was all into canon and stuff (you know, ginny/harry, ron/hermione) but after reading this poem it made me reconsider. Hermione and Harry would fit together real well! This poem had made me think of this ship as a possibility. Your a really great writer, because you were able to change a persons (me) view and not many people are able to do that. So.. Congratulations on this beautiful poem and on being an awesome writer! I actually think this is one the most saddest and emotion fullest poem I have ever read!

Author's Response: Wow. You are now my official favorite commenter! Let me tell you, I live on reviews like yours!!! It made me extremely happy to read your thoughts on the poem and how it made you think a little differently. Thank you and I'm really happy that you like the poem!

ure a really good writer.

Author's Response: Thank you so much for your comments! I really tried to get the emotions that Hermione was feeling onto the page and I'm glad that liked it.



To Draco, With Love by Hutchinson

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 158 Reviews

Feel free to write in for advice about love, life, school, family, anything you can think of! But remember... with Draco, you tend not to get the answer you expected!

wow, that's a really great story. I love the way you used the comical draco. I love all stories with funn draco's but this one is especially funny! I loved the funny senteces and humour that you wove into your story! Great job and I can't wait for the next issue. Please don't keep me waiting for too long!
-Raffles

Author's Response: Thanks for such a kind note! I have so much fun exploring different sides of Draco's personality, or interpretations of it. And often exaggerations of it! Thanks for reading, and check out some of my Dramione stories some time!

Date: 01/06/09 Title: Chapter 5: Issue the Fifth

Hey, it's me again,
Remember? The girl that sneezed?
Ok, well I tried out that advice you gave me, but it totally backfired!!!!
Maybe I forgot to mention before, but my brother Felix, is more of a mastermind in pranks that you would expect a 12 year old twit to be. So I followed your instructions, went and got myself one of those 'Gabol and Jape's Wafty Wand'. So as he was talking to a bunch of his looser friends at breakfast, I quickly switched his wand with the fake wand. He seemed like he didn't notice anything, but thats just what he wants you to think. So after breakfast I walked up to charms with my new best friend Katie, (since Cho Chang still won't talk to me!). I was imagining Felix in transfiguration using the fake wand, completely humiliating himself, when Professor Flitwick called me up to the front. Apparently, the wafty wand, doesn't need a spell to 'work it's magic' it simply needs some wand movements. So as a demonstrated the basic hand movements of the levitating charm, a loud 'pfffffffffffffffff' erupted from my general direction. You were right about the smell too!
Now I'm not only the idiot girl that sneezed, I'm the idiot joke of the school that sneezed and farted!
What do I dooo??
Love, Raffles



Reviewer: Raffles Signed

Dear Draco,
I have a problem. Well obviously, as I wouldn't be writing to you if I hadn't would I? It happened at breakfast. I was sitting at the Ravenclaw table (as I am in Ravenclaw, obviously), and I was eating my Yorkshire pudding. It tasted quite nice but that doesn't really matter does it? Well anyway, I was just eating and talking with my friend Cho Chang. We were talking about the band the weird sisters, the band. They are pretty awesome don't you think? I love their song... I'm getting off track. What was I saying? Oh yeah. I was eating breakfast. Little did I know that in the very same Yorkshire pudding that stood before, was a dose of sneezing powder from the 'Weasleys Wizard Wheezes' that my brother Felix had smuggled past Filch. So as I was just discussing the hairdo of the lead singer (it's rather ugly I think) I got this itch in my nose. The itch started getting itchier and itchier. I didn't notice it at the beginning but then my nose started to twitch as well. I felt it coming, the sneeze. It felt like a big one so I quickly grabbed the serviette that lay beside my plate. But... It was too late. I sneezed. A big boom made everyone in the great hall look up from his or her breakfast. Everyone was staring at me. It was so embarrassing. Even a week later, everyone is still making fun of me! Cho Chang won't hang out with me anymore because of what happened and I have a week's detention from Professor McGonagall for causing a disruption. I was so mad at Felix ad I wanted to write to my mum but Felix was faster than me. He had already written to her warning her that I was going to write a lie to her. And she believed him! That little monster! Please help me. Tell me what to do. Anything! A revenge for Felix. A way to get Cho Chang to be my friend. A way to stop people from saying 'bless you' under suppressed giggles every-time they see me. Please
Love, Raffles
