Summary: Hermione goes back in time with one mission: to kill Tom Riddle before he ever comes to power. A difficult task, correct? An impossible one, she realizes, as a love between them grows stronger than anything she has ever known. Now Hermione has a choice to make. Will she condemn the Wizarding world to almost certain destruction, or will she take the life of the one boy she has ever loved?
I absolutely LOVE this fanfic. It's the best I've read in a very, very long time. I heard about it from a friend, and it seemed like a strange idea- Tom Riddle and Hermione. But you pulled it off very convincingly, and looked into the question of evil. I also liked your observations on time. Overall, excellent job.
Author's Response: Thank you very much. Yes, it was and still is a very strange idea. I have no idea why I wrote it, but I\'m glad you liked it!
Summary: If you're looking for the usual James-loves-Lily-but-Lily-hates-James storyline, then this isn't it. The thing is, Lily doesn't hate James at all, he can just be annoying at the best of times. As she comes to realise why she doesn't hate him, it leads to the famous love we all know about. Set against the backdrop of a warring magical world where nothing is certain, can James and Lily hold onto each other and fight?
UPDATE August 08: It's FINISHED! Thank you so much to all those who have read and reviewed this story, I have loved your support. i hope there are still people out there who are willing to read it. Keep an eye out for more stories by me! UPDATE February '08: I have changed the chapter names of some of the 'Defied' chapters, to make this fit and to make it more plausible, as I see the 'thrice defying' of Voldemort as happening when James and Lily are part of the Order of the Phoenix.
UPDATE 20th September: I have altered my facts in the chapter 'Once Defied' as I made mistakes in the ages of James and Lily. It didn't matter so much in this chapter but had annoying repercusions for future chapters. It should all now be correct.
I love it so far!! Update soon please. I can't wait to see what happens yet, as this is the best Lily/James fanfic I've read in awhile. Keep up the great work!!
Author's Response: wow thanks! glad you like it so much. next one\'s in the queue.
Summary: Ginny Weasley is living with a terrible secret. She is pregnant with Harry Potter’s child, but in a world where Voldemort rules and Harry is dead (or so everyone assumes), this is a deadly position to be in. Forced into marrying Draco Malfoy, Ginny must find a way to survive while hiding her pregnancy and the child that could turn out to be the next saviour of the wizarding world.
I really like the story so far. At first I thought it seemd like an odd idea, but you're doing a good job with it. It is very unique and original, and I'm curious to see where you go with it.
