Summary: One day, Sirius comes back to his flat to find the protective wards removed, blood on the carpet and his family nowhere in sight. He has to choose whether to be James Potter's friend first, or his wife's husband and his son's father. SBOC
awwww, thats a sad chapter isnt it
i really like your style of writing. it makes the story really awsome and great. i cant wait for the next chapter. whats gonna happen?
please update real soon. i am amazed that even though you dont use beta's, u stilll have no spelling or grammer mistakes. i wish i could do that but im terrible at those thongs and no betas ever think my stories are good enough to read.
well, anyway, that was an AMAZING chapter
keep writing and updating pleeeese
Author's Response: Thanks! Yes, the chapter was sad and the next one is already in the queu, along with another Angela/Sirius humour fic. You'll have to wait and see what happens. rnI must admit that some of my other stories really don't have betas, but this one in particular has one. So, the lack of spelling and grammar mistakes is not entirely my doing. The style, however, is mine and mine alone! I'm flattered that you like it.
Summary: When Lily Evans causes Remus Lupin to be humiliated in front of the entire school, he vows revenge. That's when he comes up with The Prank. It's guaranteed to make Lily's worst nightmare come true, if he can pull it off. And on his own...he probably can't. But with the help of Sirius Black and his Ravenclaw friend, well, anything is possible.
please continue. im (im)patiently waiting for the next chapter. I LOOOVEEEE this story!!!
Author's Response: I LOOOOOVEEE the fact that somebody LOOOVEEES this story! I'm doing my best to get the next chapter up here as soon as possible so keep an eye out for it.
Awesome chapter. That is a major cliffy! I can't wait for the next one. :)
Author's Response: I'm glad you like it! I'm currently working on the next chapter and I'll get it up here as soon as possible.
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.
ooooh cool beginning! You really described how Hermione looks now. It's a sort of dark beginning isn't it? I like it!
Author's Response: I think this is my favourite story, because I'm letting a lot of darkness out through it.
coolness! I don't know how you do it but I was sitting at the edge of my seat clutching the desk the whole way through! You really are an awesome writer!
Author's Response: Thanks, I hope I can continue to deserve such compliments! I've really been twisting my brains up over this story!
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!
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.
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!
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
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!
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
(Oh yeah, thanks for mentioning me in chapter notes ^^.)
Author's Response: Well, thank you. Remus also thanks you (my Remus, not Jo\'s!)
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!
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*
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.
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!
Author's Response: Yeah, it couldn\'t have been such a happy ending, at least not in the beginning. Thanks for reviewing!
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.
Author's Response: To tell you the truth, that was my favorite line, too. Thanks!
Summary: This is a sonnet that discusses George and Fred's store.
wow. great job on this sonnet. I was tapping along the whole way. You've got talent!
Author's Response: Thanks! My beta helped me a bit, but I thought this was a fun poem for a nice change! I appreciate the review!
Summary: The Sorting Hat is confused. Gryffindor or Ravenclaw? Then, a certain Sirius Black unknowingly comes to help - the only time he would ever do something useful for the school.
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 !
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!
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?
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.
Author's Response: Yeah, poor Teddy, I felt bad for him too.
Summary: Looking back years later, he could see that it was that night that had first made him start paying attention to Astoria Greengrass.
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!
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!
Summary: Remus Lupin is reading in Hogwarts: A History one day when he learns about a magical mirror that shows the soul's deepest desire. He persuades his friends to help him find it and the four boys each look. A story about what the Marauders really wanted and if they got it or not.
This story is really great. I think the idea is awesome. I can't wait to see what James's desire is (he's one of my favorite characters) Please update soon!
Author's Response: Well I've submitted chapter two so I hope that it will be up here soon. Thanks for reviewing!!
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.
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!
