Killer Instincts by Ginny Weasley Potter
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 228]

Summary: London: Four murders have taken place under bizarre circumstances, for what seems to be an equally bizarre reason.

Harry, a happily wedded man with a wonderful wife and a cute daughter, is an Auror at the Ministry of Magic and is now given a new case to solve with Ron and four other Aurors. Incidentally, the four Aurors include Ginny, Harry’s ‘schoolboy crush’; and it turns out to be much more than a crush when Harry sees her again. What’s more is that Harry is working upon a case that seems to connect to him directly. And once again, it opens up old fears: fears of losing loved ones.

Ron, on the other hand, seems to be tired of Hermione. Tempers are running high and fights are breaking out more often than usual. Are they really falling apart? Or can they sort this out before it is too late?

Then there is the case itself. Who is trustworthy, and who is not? Who is deadly enough to murder four people in cold blood?

Indulge into the gut-wrenching action, combined with warm romance and tingling suspense; while I tell you a story of love, ambition and obsession… a story of what those killer instincts can do. EDIT: MAJOR revamping going on, with regard to plot, characterisation, and general style of writing. I would urge you not to read this until I've removed this notice because I wasn't very good six years ago, and this is as bad as I was. *Places traffic cones*

This chapter is really great! For a moment there, in the beginning of the chapter, i thought that Ginny had stopped loving Harry. She was a really great actor. i think it's pretty sad to see Ginny longing for Harry and Harry longing for Ginny. I feel bad for Parvati though. She seems really nice now that she has grown up. And I can't wait to read more about the serial killer who is a fan of Harry's. I think I might know who it might be. I'm probably wrong though. I shall read on now!

Author's Response: The killer... yes. I promise, with all my heart to keep making you guess throughout this story! *wink*

Wow, this chapter is really powerful! i really liked the bewda part. It was really funny. I wonder if harry really doesn't love Parvati and just respects her. because sometimes it seems like he does love her!
I must read on!

Author's Response: Harry definitely loves Parvati. *grins* It's just a sort of... phase for him. It's a trauma. Thank you!

ooohhh cliffy!!!! This story is really marvelous! I really love all the suspense, romance and a bit of humor you put in this story! Your an amazing writer and I really love your style of writing. I really don't like Irene! She is so mean. But maybe she is beyond mean. Is she the killer?!?!?!?!?! Well you probably won't tell me so i will just read on :p

Author's Response: Irene is mine! Hahahahahahaha!!! You'll get to see quirkier characters, don't worry *points at Daisy*. Thanks for reviewing!

Date: 08/25/08 Title: Chapter 5: Rebecca Palmer

Oooh this is another cliffy isn't it. I think that in this chapter, we really get to see more of Hermione's and Ron's relationship and how they might even be drifting apart. I still feel really bad for Ginny though. She still really loves harry doesnt she. And harry loves her back. And then I still feel bad for Parvati. And the part about the serial killings is really interesting! This story is Awesome!

Author's Response: Thanks a lot! Your reviews have seriously made my day!

Hey, Nonny, Nonny by Pussycat123
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 77]

Summary: “With a little thing called trickery, lies and deceit ...”

Based on the Shakespeare play, Much Ado About Nothing, this fic follows the Marauders, Lily, and her identical twin friends, Isabella and Henrietta (Izzie and Henrie to most) as they fall in and out of love, through complex, elaborate and intricate tricks, plots and schemes. This fic has everything. The Marauders, Shakespeare, humour, romance, devious plans and maybe even a bit of snogging here and there ... so are you ready?

“Then sigh not so,
But let them go,
And be you blithe and bonny,
Converting all your sounds of woe
Into Hey, nonny, nonny”

[Taken from Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing]

awwwwwwww. that was a very toughing story. i loved the taxi driver. he was so funny yet smart and had very good advice indeed. i founf it so sad that isabella did love him and he just gave up. it stung my heart. almost made me cry *wipes away tear drop. I also found it a very good idea to have jakes and james names similar as it adds to the effect of them having similar lives. i absolutley LOVED the ending. it was truly amazing how you ended this famfic with harry and with the taxi drivers chuckle. james had lived out the life that he never had (even though he died early, which adds to the saddness) . this story really makes me think. its written very thoughtful and it seems like you put a lot of effort into this story. id like to congratulate on a story well done.
great job and keep on writing

Author's Response: I\'m really glad that you liked my story! Yes, I rather think that this is one of my most brilliant writings (judging by the number of positive reviews I\'ve read, of course). Thank you for the review! :)

 

Click! by Pussycat123
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 59]

Summary: Before Harrys 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 doesnt 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 ...

Summary: For the past six years, Lily Evans has put up with James Potter's pranking. But as her seventh year commences, she decides it's time to give James a taste of his own medicine.


Chapter 7 has finally been submitted!

A tiny sneek peek:

"Oh, come on now! Lily thought. “Just kiss me already,” she said audibly. James froze at her words and she, embarrassed beyond belief that her thoughts had spilled from her mouth, sat entirely still."

The Dark Arches by Insecurity
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 5]

Summary: Lily is the southern lass who is unaccustomed to the industrial north. Severus is the fiercely independent and scruffy local. They have one thing in common: they can both do magic! This one, defining factor forges the strangest friendship and leads to mutual affection. Together, they face problems from their parents and the local bullies, in order to discover the power of magic together.



I owe thanks to several, wonderfully helpful people. Firstly, Erika/VV for beta'ing my story. Secondly, to Gary for finding Holbeck and pointing me to several very useful sites for research. Thirdly, to Jan for the dialect advice. Fourthly, to Beth and Alice for their help with dialect and mannerisms. I may have been born in Sheffield, but this project has made me realise just how Midlands I am!

Hi there,
i think that this story is amazing!
I really love your style of writing! It makes me want to read on! I think that this story has an amazing story line. I think it's great how you gave snape that accent!
'“Yuh dun’t like it,” he commented blandly'
That was my favorite line of his. It was so cute how he said it!
Great Job on this story!
