I'm in my mid-twenties and have been a huge HP fan since 2001. Other than all things Harry, I also love CSI, Law and Order, and singing at the top of my lungs (usually to 3 Doors Down). If you asked my co-workers they would probably state that they think I'm a bit crazy, especially when I'm dancing at my desk to my iPod...
I've loved the site for awhile and just recently got the nerves to post my own story.
I hope you enjoy Talitha, she's a creation that came to me one day when I was walking my dog up a huge hill, listening to (what else) 3DD's "You Don't Know Me", the lyrics, "You love me but you don't know who I am, I'm torn between this life I lead and where I stand" just clicked in my head and Talitha came to life!
Summary: Seventh year sequel to Power of Emotion. Harry is recovering from his captivity, but he’s hiding how much it’s effecting him. With his powers increasing, and Voldemort now aware of the prophecy, can Harry find the secret to destroying him before Voldemort learns of the existence of these ancient texts? Would this be HP fanfiction if it were that easy?
My Merlin, I think I've cracked a rib from laughing so hard. I was in tears as Harry was saying "I mean snogging, we just snog! She does that thing with my ear...." LOL, I was beside myself with mirth. Anyway, wonderful chapter, I can't wait to read the talk between Remus and Harry, and Harry and Ginny. Please update soon, and promise me you'll write another story when this one is finished? You're my favorite fan fic author! You should go pro! Thanks for brightening my day!
Sniff! I have tears in my eyes! Poor Ginny, poor Ron, poor everyone. I knew it was going to be sad from the title, but my Merlin, I just couldn't prepare myself for it. Wonderfully written, I do adore your story, and I can't stop reading just because you killed a Weasley! I love the comparsion of Harry holding Ginny to Remus holding Harry. Great job, 10+, I can't wait to read the next chapter.
I love it!!!!!!!! I just adore your stories! This chapter was excellent, as usual, and I love how Ginny is always able to open Harry up. I hate how he's feeling though, he shouldn't be doubting himself. I hope Dumbledore can make him feel a little better, and I hope he doesn't try and pull Harry away from everyone again! 10! Off to the next chapter I go!
Woo hoo, I'm the first to review! Incredible work here, I loved Bill's speech, and the twist with that little git Percy....grrr....that grr....is for Fudge too, wanting a spy on Harry! Anyways, I love Dumbledore's explaination of why Harry got Head Boy. Like Ginny, I can't wait for the school year to begin. 12! =) Please update soon!
Oh my! It's scary how the ministry is trying to interfere in Harry's personal life! True, what he does will affect everyone, but this is a startling case of Big Brother. Funny how that seems to be happening in the States too, just mere weeks ago. Thank goodness for Dumbledore! I knew I could trust him to sort it out in the end...wonderful, fabulous, fantastic, incredible chapter...update as soon as you can, I'm hooked! (As always!)
I am constantly impressed with the ability of your writing. Every chapter shows another strength, and draws in another depth of Harry that we've yet to see. I love this story! I hope this latest attack by Uncle Vernon will bring Dumbledore to his senses, and let Harry leave the nasty Dursleys for good. Hopefully Harry will tell someone, be it Ginny, Lupin, Bill or even Hermione. Please update soon!
Another great chapter, but what else could we expect? So far, I have been absolutely addicted to your stories. I love reading them! This chapter was very good. I am still wary of the interaction with Dudley, though. I just don't trust him, I think he's setting Harry up or something. But I love the Harry/Ginny relationship. Don't worry about Harry's hormones though, he is a 17 year old male! They all act that way! Great story, keep it up! 10!
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you're enjoying it. You're supposed to be wary of Dudley - Harry sure is.
That was great! I so love this storyline, I can't wait to read more. I'm suspicious of Dudley though, I agree with Ron! (My favorite character, by the way). Please update soon!
Author's Response: I tend to agree with Ron on his opinions of Malfoy, Snape, and the Dursleys, as well. We'll see...
What a great escape for Harry! I totally understand the feeling he has on the boat, that's how I feel when I'm on our boat. There's nothing like cruising along on a warm day, the wind flowing through your hair.......ahhh.........I wonder if that's what flying on a broomstick feels like? Anyways, great chapter, but let's hope Harry lets go a little and lets himself enjoy the sunny hideaway! More beach fun soon please, and I really enjoyed drunk! Harry, so I'm eagerly awaiting his return! 10! (Wow I just noticed, I ended every sentence with a !, can you tell I'm super excited about your story?)
Oh. My. God. I can't believe Fudge did it. What is WRONG with him? Very well chosen title. I love the Harry/Ginny moments and I just wish Ron and Hermione would make up instead of seeing who can make whom more jealous! I can't believe it!!!! Great chapter, I'm off to read the next!

Wow, wonderful job! I liked how the story switches from one character's POV to another. It was especially interesting to see things through the RAT's eyes. I like how you moved him into the dark side. I hope to see things through Sirius' eyes again though, maybe in the next chapter or two? Great job again. I love it and am going to add it to my favorites list!
Author's Response: Thankyou for your positive response, I'm glad you like it! YAY Faves (wahoooooooooo *goes to run down street but then decides not to*, In anwser to your, er, plea... heehee, we will be seeing a lot of Remus, some Peter, and some Sirius POV wise; but no James. Thanks again! Chappie 3 in queue!
First of all, YAY!!!!! A whole chapter from Sirius' perspective. I loved it! How passionately he cares for James, Lily and Harry, and how he confided in Harry. It was perfect. But it kills me how Peter is causing this rift between Sirius and Remus. That stinking rat. But I love the thought process he goes through, with the idea of switching secret keepers. But it makes me want to scream, "NO! Don't do it!" Oh, the pain of it all. The dream was very well written, you did such a great job. Wonderful wonderful work. 10!
Author's Response: WAHOO. There is a little bit more Sirius coming up. Peter next chapter. Thankyou for the well written comment! I know, don't you just want to knock some sense in him and change his mind? Unfortunately then Harry Potter would never have happened...so what can you do? I think that Sirius is a very passionate person.
That was bloody brilliant! I love how you write the characters, and the Christmas morning scene was fabulous. That damn Pettigrew, it's like he was setting Remus up to be suspected as the spy, whether intentionally or not. Grrr.....I do feel so sorry for Remus! Well, lovely job, and I can't wait to go read ch 4. 10!
Author's Response: Thankyou very much! Chappie 5 is up wahooooooooooooooo. Wow, got that out of my system. Pettigrew is more of a schemer than everyone thinks. Or at least... he will be. Ooo er. This would be a lot more exiting if everyone didnt know what was going to happen! Im glad you like it. *Remus; if you're up there, Im so sorry for what Im doing to you, but it was JKR's idea; not mine. Please forgive me* There. Who says Hp is fiction?
Wow, when Peter was thinking to himself about the power he'll have when The Dark Lord is in total control while he was talking to Sirius it gave me the chills. I really liked how you infused his thoughts into everything this chapter. How he could do that to his friends though, sigh, it makes me so sad. You're doing a great job, keep it up, and I hope the next chapter is up soon!
Author's Response: Ohh. Yay! You got the chills. By that I mean.... sorry for giving you the chills, but I'm sort of glad it affected you that much. Ok ignore that... it made no sense. Peter is a horrible person; but innocently so I think. Well at first anyway. He just gets himself in too deep to turn around again. The next xhappie is up, and chappie 6 is in queue! Thanks for you lovely review. I hope there's more where that came from....
That was such a tragic ending...we all knew it would be, to have it put out there like that...it breaks your heart! I really thought it was very clever to have Moony and Padfoot transform so they wouldn't have to feel the pain that life had handed them. I really enjoyed this and can't wait to read whatever else you write!
Author's Response: Thankyou! I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thankyou for your several reviews, they all made me so happy! I cried whilst writing the last chapter. But, it is positively impossible to end the story happily, so I thought I may as well go for downright angst. I have a prequel to this up, entitled 'Maruadering Around'.. please check it out! Lexi xx
Good job! Poor Remus, my heart aches for him. What an awful thing to go through, just after finding out about your best friends' deaths. Nice work. I'm off to read the next chapter!
Nice work. Quite as sad as the one I just read on Saturday. Well done. Nice twist with Remus holding Harry....it's very heartbreaking. You write very well, and I look forward to reading your next chapter.
Author's Response: I'm glad that you are enjoying the story. And if you are a Sirius fan, as I suspect you might be... he is coming up next chapter. In fact, his POV will be concluding my story.
Wonderful job. I've said this before, but I really like how you intermingle the character's thoughts into the storyline. It really makes you see things from their perspective, which makes you much more into the story. It was written well, however, hearing the RAT cursing and blaming Sirius was enough to make my blood boil. He'll never accept responsibility for his actions, will he? Imagine blaming Sirius! However, from what we have read about him in the books, it seems to be very in character for him. Still, though, what a little shit. Great job, I look forward to reading the next chapters!
Author's Response: I hate Peter. I hope that I have sufficiently conveyed my hatred, although I did set out wanting everyone to feel sympathy for him. Hopefully nobody does now. If anyone does... don't. Im glad you liked this chappie! Personally I think it is the worst of the whole story; but I like the next chapter. Heehee. *Grins evilly at the fact that she knows whats going to happen* Although Im sure you could offer and accurate guess.
What a good job you've done. I think the characters are very well written, not OOC at all. I especially loved the chant Sirius and James had. I can't wait to read the next chapter, which I'm off to do now. Great job!

Oh, I like it! Poor Remus, all that he goes through...and that stupid addition to that damn act about not holding children...grrr....it made me bristle then and it makes me bristle now (or, er, should I say that the other way around since this is before then? Anyways, you know what I mean!) But, I liked it a lot. Remus and Peter working on the map, the charts on the walls, Sirius practicing looking haughty...fantastic. I'm off to read the next chapter now. Ta!
