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!
WOW! This is a wonderful story. Even though I know what's going to happen, I still got the chills when Dumbledore told James and Lily that Voldemort was after them. I love reading about Sirius, James and Remus at this stage in their life. 10!
Great story! Have I told you how much I *LOVE* your writing? Because it's just fantastic. Wonderful! Keep up the great work!
I'm very glad Harry caught the snitch, because I would have been really angry if Harry had to deal with 2 stupid articles and lost to that brat Blaise. I really loved Harry's speech at the beginning, it was very Harry, you know? Honest and forthcoming, but not too much information. I hope Ron gets over it with Harry, but how will Ginny take it when she finds out? Well, just wonderful job and please update soon!
What a great chapter. Great just isn't a strong enough word to describe your writing...wonderful, fantastic, fabulous, supreme....anyways, I got sidetracked. Loved the chapter, Ron and Harry's spat, but the fact that even though they were fighting they stood up for each other, that seems very true to character. Zabini, hmm....don't know how to read him, he seems so upfront, yet....I wonder. Well, continue the great (wonderful, fantastic, fabulous, supreme) work and please update as soon as you can.
Hee hee hee, I have 2 dogs, and I got my Akita as a 8 week old butterball almost exactly a year ago. Have fun with the house breaking, I don't have children myself, but from those that do, it's as hard of work as a new baby is. Sleepless nights, the whole works. =) But it's well worth it when that little puppy face looks at you with that "How could you not love me?" look. Great chapter, please tell me that Ron is being dramatic, and that he and Hermione aren't through! Oh no....I hope classes are good for the trio and Ginny. Have fun with Ginerva (major points to your son for knowing exactly what buttons to push) and let us know how it's going!
I think Harry is very in character! I don't know what the mods were thinking...other than the fact that Harry is learning to control his temper, but that comes with age! Wonderful chapter, I'm on the edge of my seat with worry for Ginny. 10! Oh, and I think Ron and Ginny and Hermione are all in character as well!
Good chapter, it was weird to see Harry pouring his heart out to Ginny, I know the only reason why he could do it is because he thought she was asleep. I'm glad he did it though, instead of just thinking it. He needed to do that! Good job and keep updating.
I have to review, even though I did at the other site. I loved this chapter. You rock! Just thought you should know that!
What an incredible chapter. I love Harry's realization of how much he loves Ginny, and I can see him in my mind's eye, brushing the hair out of her face. Awww....and the twist with Snape, just shocking! I can't believe it. Dumbledore better have something good up his sleeve to ruin Harry's favorite class for him. As for the nightmare, I had the chills, tears in my eyes, the whole 9 yards. It was awesome writing. Can I vote for you? Any idea how? I would vote for you in a heart beat, you are one of the best authors I've ever read. Well, wonderful please update soon. 10+++
Simply marvelous chapter! I do agree with you about Ron and Hermione, as much as I love them together, they BOTH need to learn the fine art of listening to a viewpoint other than their own. The problem being they are both such passionate people, they have a hard time even LISTENING to a different POV, let alone trying to understand it or accept it. Yikes. It will be interesting to see how you write this. I just hope the whole relationship doesn't go up in flames! Sniff. I LOVE Abe! I think he is my favorite new character, I love how you write him. I do see some Dumbledore in him, it's great! Wonderful job. Please update soon, and best of luck with Ginny!
Whew, what a great chapter. I am happy that Tonks saved Harry, and I'm sorry, but I really don't mind the Dursleys dying, except for the fact Harry lost his blood protection. I was wondering at the start of the chapter is Dudley was under the Imperious Curse...and how did Vernon find out that they were talking? It seems too conveinent for me! Please update soon, I hate having to bite my nails over Harry's health!
Author's Response: Nope, no Imperius. Harry and Dudley weren't quiet when they went upstairs and Vernon went to call them for dinner.
WOW! I loved PoE, it was my favorite fan fic, I was so sad it ended, what a fantastic story. The sequel is starting out just as great. I can't wait to read more of it! I love what Bill is doing to the Dursleys, but you would think that either he or Dobby would be able to tell that they are impairing Harry's recovery with all that extra work. I would like to see Bill's reaction to that! Please update soon!!!!!!!
Author's Response: You will. Harry is good at hiding things, but he can't hide this forever...and the truth comes from a surprising source...
Awesome chapter! I love the title, and especially when Abe made Percy duel with Harry. It was a wonderful feeling to smirk at Percy's ineptness when compared to Harry! I love the confident Harry, as well. As for Dumbledore, I am 100% in agreement with you. In fact, that is who I had prepared myself to lose in OOtP, so losing Sirius was a total slap in the face for me! He is getting older, and in GoF, she kept repeating how Harry was really noticing Dumbledore's age. It just seems like it couldn't have been said for no reason, knowing JKR. I hope Harry hangs up his drawing of his mother, though I doubt Petunia would have done a picture of Lily when she was a teenager. It was good of Dumbledore to give those to Harry, it gives him something to cherish of his mother's. I hope Ron and Hermione would get over it, and get back together though! Wonderful job, and please update soon!
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.
