Summary: *A sequel to 3 questions* Harry and Ginny are getting married. Follow the months, weeks, days and minutes until they get married. Please R/R!
Love the story, but I'd like to give you a few pointers on grammar, if you don't mind. See my user profile for my AIM screen name. I know I'm not a beta reader, but I wasn't the best student in my 12th grade English class for nothing!! (I'm a recent high school grad)
Summary: Five meetings with Harry Potter. He never stays long, but he always leaves with the promise that he'll come back in the end. And all Ginny can do is wait for the end to come.
Final Chapter has been posted; the story is now complete!
One word (whole story): Awesome.
Author's Response: Another one word review! I must be making everyone speechless. Thanks for the review! It makes my day.
Summary: This is a one-shot that takes place immediately after the 36th chapter of DH in which Harry has a few other conversations following his chat with Dumbledore's portrait.
*chuckles* Wonderful, simply wonderful!! Sequel, anyone?
Author's Response: I\'m thrilled you found this story wonderful! And if you wish a sequel, check out my longer fic \"As Happily Ever After As They\'re Gonna Get\" as it more or less follows this one. The only exception is with the portrait of Snape in the headmistress\' office as I have different plans for that in the chaptered story. Thanks for reading and reviewing! cj
Summary: Why Hermoine really *wasn't* sure that Ron could pass a Muggle driving test.
Summary: My take on the first of those 'nineteen years' between the 36th chapter of DH and the epilogue.
Warnings: contains an unusually-shaped ring, a nosy neighbour, a rude shop assistant, shaving mishaps, thoughtful gestures, threatening goblins, and, unexplained appearances of Romantic!Ron and Romantic!Harry. You have been warned.
Rating is for *mild* innuendo and *mostly* innocent interactions but I wouldn't let my 9 year old read it.
Haha yeah, I did. It's almost as if you have a view into J.K.'s mind as to how she would have written it. I realize that I sometimes prefer reading post-DH-chapter-36 H/G stories that are a little more adult-oriented, but more often than not, it comes at the expense of the story's quality. Your style is a seamless balance between readability for adults (or late teenagers, like me) and the semi-younger set (but I agree with the notion that you wouldn't want your 9-year-old to read it.
P.S. You don't actually have to keep putting disclaimers in each chapter's notes. All you really need is one in the story notes. I know it may not seem that way, but trust me, it's fine. All you really need to do that for is if you pull a quote out of the book(s).
Author's Response: Disclaimers - yeah. It seemed to be getting a little much to be honest. It was getting tough to say the same thing in different ways! LOL! Thanks for the comments about having a view into Ms Rowling\'s mind. How sweet to say. I actually have the more \'adult-oriented\' version on these chapters in my head but as I know the children I work with (grade 6) and my own children read these stories, I had to keep it clean. After all, it\'s just as easy to click \'yes I\'m of age\' as it is to click \'no, I\'m not\', right? I\'m pleased you think my writing is a balance between readability for adults and young \'uns. Thanks so much for taking the time to review Sean! cj
*chants as if cheering on Superman* UP-DATE!! UP-DATE!! UP-DATE!!
Author's Response: I take it you liked it then. I\'m doing my best to update asap. When my dh was in the hospital I was dying to write and now that he\'s out and things are slowly getting back to normal, I have a bit of time but I\'ve been hit with the biggest writer\'s block. Very disheartening! It\'s lovely to know people are still anxious for the next chapters, though. cj
Summary: Why does the colour red interest Harry Potter so much? See a day in each season (fall, winter, spring, and summer) of Harry Potter’s eighth year, and find out why Harry is so fascinated with the colour red.
It's perfect! Though the warning is entirely unnecessary.
Summary: It is a magical evening. Bill and Fleur have just been married and the reception is in full swing. The guests are swaying gently to the music, the drinks are flowing freely, and the Trio are finally enjoying a perfectly normal evening…that is until a silvery Patronus appears in their midst.
Harry Potter always knew it would fall to him to defeat Lord Voldemort and, with four Horcruxes left to find and destroy, that task is more than a little daunting. Harry knew it would take the combined efforts of him, Ron, and Hermione to complete the task and finally defeat Voldemort once and for all. But Harry accepted it, however reluctantly. He knew he needed Ron and Hermione with him, that they would be essential in his quest. What Harry didn’t count on was the addition of two more people to the group. But what was he to do? After all, no one told Ginny and Lukas Weasley to grab onto his arm while he, Ron, and Hermione were Apparating away from Bill and Fleur’s reception. Will Ginny and Lukas prove to be a hindrance to Harry or will they end up being invaluable resources in the final battle of good versus evil?
I realize you haven't updated this in a while. Would you like me to help you, perhaps collaborate on this story (i.e. as co-authors)?
Author's Response: I\'m sorry, but I am going to have to refuse. The next chapter of this is in queu and I\'ve got it all planned out. There really would be no benefit to having someone else writing with me. So I\'m sorry, but no. Thank you for offering though.
No, it's fine. Don't apologize. I just wanted this thing out of the starting gate lol, cuz it's a GREAT story so far!! Do you need a beta?
Author's Response: No, I have a beta, but again, thank you for offering. I\'m glad you like the story!
NOOO!! I hate cliffhangers!! Haha. Can't wait for the next one!! Please update soon!!
Summary: Harry Potter and the Veil of Innocents is an epic, fan based adaptation of the continued story of Harry Potter and both his friends and enemies following J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. This year, Harry finds himself retuning to Hogwarts to complete his 7th and final year, which he missed while on the run from Lord Voldemort. While there, Harry is faced with turmoil of the ever-raging Wizarding War that is still taking place. For Antonin Dolohov, one of the original Death Eaters and closest followers of Lord Voldemort, has assumed his title as the Dark Lord. With this title, Antonin Dolohov has claimed all of Lord Voldemort's forces and is reeking havoc on the re-established Ministry of Magic.
In this chaos, Harry finds himself to be the icon of the Wizarding community and beacon of hope. However, Harry has to face up to the realization that he no longer has his mother's magic to protect him nor Dumbledore's guidance. Instead, he must stand as the hero of the Wizarding community as nothing more then a common sorcerer.
You know, I think that the whole thing with Mrs. Weasley barging in and such is a bit OOC; she knows perfectly well how her and Arthur started off, and therefore the sheer hypocritical-ness that that whole scene bought upon Mrs. Weasley. Now Ron, I can understand, but if Arthur is the realistic, mature advocate of Harry that I know he is, he probably had a talk with Molly before Harry got there about him and Ginny consummating their love. At least, that's what I'm planning.
Author's Response: Honestly, I beleive that Mrs. Weasley is the type of woman who has trouble seeing her kids grow up. Plus it is in human nature to overlook are own past when dealing with a situation in which those you love are involved And although Mr. Weasley may have a diferent stand and may advocate to Mrs. Weasley that she should let up on Harry and Ginny, i think she to strong willed to heed anyones opinion but her own.
Yeah, I can see where you're coming from. I just think that the Battle of Hogwarts may have _finally_ convinced Mrs. Weasley that her children can take care of themselves: perhaps her sheer fury when dueling Bellatrix was of the type where something like "Dammit, you are not ending my daughter's life when I just saw her grow up" was going through her head...or maybe Molly killing Bellatrix was Mrs. Weasley's way of doing her daughter one last motherly favor-sort of going out with a bang, if you will. Losing Fred may have kind of shocked her into some realization, too. I know that if I were in her position, my view would be something like "life is too short, and they should enjoy it while they can". It could go either way-JKR never said which way it went, so as fanfic writers, we are essentially both right.
Author's Response: I see your viewpoint. I also think that Fred dieing however would have the opposite effect, it would make Mrs. Weasley hold on to her children that much more. Speaking from personal expierence, when my brother died my mother seemed to have a vice grip placed over all are lives for a long while. She didn't want anything to happen to us, or for us to grow up to quickly
Like I said, JKR never said how Mrs. Weasley turned out, so as fanfic writers, we're technically both right!
