Summary: The reign of Voldermort comes to an end, and with it ends the prestige and power Lucius Malfoy once had in the Wizarding World. In order to regain the respect of his fellow wizards and to make them believe that he has turned over a new leaf (which he actually hasn't) and has graciously accepted muggles and Mudbloods, Lucius asks Hermione, a Mudblood, to marry his son, Draco, a pure-blood. Obviously, they both refuse, but Lucius isn't going to give up easily. After all, he wants his status back. He still has a few tricks up his sleeve and is determined to play match-maker. What happens next is a series of events that serve only to bring Hermione and Draco closer, both literally and figuratively speaking. Read to find out how this one unseemly proposal causes absolute chaos in their lives! THIS STORY IS NOT HBP and DH COMPATIBLE! Hey all! Check out my personal info for the expected date of the next update. =)

Summary: Remus Lupin is a man with a tragic past, filled with pain, suffering and sorrow. But it is also a past filled with great adventure, true friendship and…love? Even though the odds were against him, Remus found happiness at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He had the Marauders, he was a prefect and his transformations were less horrible, thanks to his Animagi friends. What more could a teenage werewolf want? And how long could his happiness last? Remus and the Marauders prove that in the saddest of lives and darkest of times, there can still be moments of bliss.
Remus centric but with a lot of the other Marauders. This story is a romance, but has almost as much general Marauder era background and side story as romance.
Pre-HBP and DH, so some things from DH will be disregarded, as the warning indicates, but some Spoilers will be incorporated.
Woahhhh!!!! What a huge cliffie!!!
I can't wait for your update!!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: *tries to keep Remus from falling over the edge* Remus isn’t making it easy! <.< I’ll try not to make you wait too long, siriuscrazy4ever! :)
Dude! This was a wonderful chapter. No kidding. Even though it's a bit suspenseful (AND even though I can't wait for the next chapter!), it was so well written. I especially liked Lindi in the beginning. She was so frank and everything, as always :) I hope Lindi doesn't hate Remus for hiding the fact that he's a werewolf for so long. I hope she doesn't break up with him or something because of it, although I doubt she will becuase we already found that she doesn't mind werewolves from Wouldyashaga ;)
Author's Response: Thank you, siriuscrazy4ever! I'm glad you liked it. *see two previous review replies for explanation/groveling about next update* <.< :*/
I'm so glad to hear you liked Lindi...really glad to hear it. LOL Oh, dear, don't remind me that I made up that ridiculous game! Oh, wait, James is the lunatic that did that. *Phew* :*)
Summary: Chapter Ninety Six is posted!
This is the story of four boys. This is the story of a boy from a family he wants to escape from. This is the story of a boy who is from a family he loves deeply, but lacks the gift of a best friend. This is the story of a boy who has been living with a curse his entire life, fighting to overcome it. This is the story of a boy who wishes to show people what he can do. This is the story of how these four boys came to know each other, of how they became friends. This is the story of their unbreakable bond, of a bond that could survive any test, any trial. This is a story that will ultimately end in tragedy.

I have been religiously following this story (and I'm sorry, I'm a little lazy about logging in and leaving a review). I just wanted to say, this was an amazing story: well thought-out and amazingly constructed. I loved all your characterizations; especially the Sirius-Remus fights before they turn suspicious. This story made me laugh, cry, sigh, angry, disappointed... that's difficult to do. Props to you. I hope you continue writing amazing stories :)
Author's Response: Hey! I'm lazy like that too, actually :-p Ooh the Sirius-Remus fights. I miss those alreadys. I love to hear that my story made you feel all that. That's probably one of the best compliments to get. Thanks for reading!
Summary: The final installment in the Potter’s Pentagon Trilogy. Read “The Five” and “The Truth” first, myess? Okay!
WARNING! Contains Muggle adventures in Diagon Alley, unusual eyebrows, cheesy clichés galore, psycho Ted, the not-so-lost years of Merlin, a school-wide singalong, the old potato joke, Tyrone’s Princess Bride obsession, Emma’s stubborn denial of the existence of Tyrone’s mustache, a graphic death, a joke shop product as a major plot device, hobo Jordan, Jordan hugging, Jordan pulling pranks, time travel, the Love Shack, angst, and worst of all, Professor Zabini.
It’s the sixth year for Potter’s Pentagon and company, and our heroes learn that in the wizarding world, coming of age has a somewhat weightier significance. Students are busy with an Inter-House Unity Project, Jordan is having weird dreams, Pansy and Ophidias Malfoy have been released from Azkaban, Professor Zabini has a mysterious project of his own, and almost everyone is acting strangely. Meanwhile, at the Ministry of Magic, a man with a vendetta against Ron Weasley is trying his hardest to get him in the biggest trouble possible. Is the only way to save him to travel into the past?
New talents are discovered, new friendships form and old ones change, pasts are dredged up, and, of course, there’s lots of good old-fashioned snogging. And one of the five kills for the first time… while another becomes a casualty of war.
Starring 2008 Quicksilver Quills Best Male Original Character runner-up Jordan Potter, Best Female Original Character nominees Ivy Potter, Haley Potter, Emma Weasley, and Giorgi Anderson, and Best Male Original Character nominee Ted Lupin! Nominated for 2008 Quicksilver Quills Best Post-Hogwarts Story.
Wowowow, Emma! She's being really rude. She really shouldn't have said all that to Jordan, just because of her little escapade with Tyrooonie. I mean, Jordan's so vulnerable right now and that's when he needs somebody to talk to. I wonder if he told Giorgi yet... Anyway, is Emma really going to be this rude for the next couple chapters?
Anatoly!!!! I miss him :(
Ivy sooo totally took the easy way out with Tyrone!
Overall, awesome chapter (although a bit sad-ish... mostly for Jor-jums), which is fabulously written :)
Author's Response: Hey, there! And yeah, Emma is in a horrible mood... but while it SEEMS like it's about Tyrone, it is not. It's about her dad. She's scared he'll end up in Azkaban, and I guess you can't blame her for that. And yeah, it would have been awesome if Ivy just told Tyrone, "What, Emma? Aw, she can't get enough of you!" But honestly, I think she was just scared Emma would kill her and wear her entrails for a hat if she did that. ^_^ I PROMISE ANI WILL BE BACK IN THE NEXT CHAPTER!
Sorry I haven't reviewed for the past few chapters!! BUT I have to say: I LOVES THIS CHAPPIEEE! It revealed so many things that I really wanted to know. You write SOOO well! And I absolutely love Jordan's characterization. Will we be seeing anything between him and Giorgi soon? *wink wink*
Author's Response: Awww, thank you! I had so much fun writing this chapter-- I was rather alarmed by how similar it was to the actual Voldemort death scene in some ways in the real book, but I really wanted to get my version down on paper. As for Jordan and Giorgi... well, you'll just have to see! There are still three more chapters!
I have been reading your stories, but I just haven't reviewed :/ I must say, this is such a huge cliffie! Please don't tell me Haley's dead! I am in total denial. I wonder why Jordy didn't stun Rookwood when he was freakishly close to Haley.
Waiit, I have a theory - Haley is also a Seer isn't she? It looked like she knew she was going to... *gulps* die and she knew she was going to meet a Death Eater whose (fake) name was Jeremy (when she said she really, really hated the name Jeremy). So is it true? Is she some sort of Seer, too? But she can't be dead! She and Jordan have to fulfill that thing that Merlin and Gryffindor didn't do!
The scene between Haley and Jordan (after she convinces him to hide under the invisibility cloak) was so touching!
Luna is blind? I don't remember reading that anywhere else. And I didn't know Neville was in a wheelchair, either! Wow, Cecilia really has a horrible perception of them, doesn't she? Poor Neville and Luna.
Anyway, I think that's all. Update soon! ^_^
Author's Response: I think Jordan was in shock. I've kind of implied this throughout the series, but Jordan is really not very good at magic under pressure. He's good at magic, and he's good at thinking up plans, but when stuff is going on that's bad, magic doesn't come that naturally to him.
Haley has kind of been building up to sacrificing herself for awhile now... ever since Ted saved her life from the werewolf, she's felt kind of guilty about it, and she always feels like she needs to prove herself.
But I'll tell you now, she's not a Seer. The Jeremy thing is a coincidence, and that's why she thought it was so terribly funny... it's also based on a real-life event where I was talking about how I hated the name Jeremy, and then the waiter came and his name was Jeremy and he was a terrible waiter. But the thing that Gryffindor never did was reunite the houses, which Haley helped accomplish in a way, and what Merlin never did was develop Telemency. I'm sorry that that's anticlimactic!
I know I mentioned several times about Neville and Luna, but I guess I didn't make it clear enough... I keep forgetting that unlike the people who read the story when I first wrote it, you guys have to read it chapter by chapter with weeks in between. But I will update soon!
Aww nooo! Haley's one of the five that dies!? I liked her the best in the female characters :( Please tell me I am merely being delusional!
Author's Response: I can't tell you whether Haley dies yet, but I have to tell you that I like her the best of the female characters, too. I wasn't expecting to get this attached to her when I started writing the series!
Schmergo! I am craving some Potter's Pentagon :( When is the next update?
Author's Response: PERFECT TIMING! I'm just submitting it now!
This is my first time reviewing your story, but I have read the first two installments about thrice already ^_^ You are an amazing writer! This chapter was very sweet... in a way. Ivy was soo totally Ivy-ish (with the whole Ophidias scene) and Emma... ARGH! She ruined the moment!! But I see where she's coming from... I think?
But all in all, awesome-possom chapter! Can't wait for the update :)
PS: Happy early birthday! ^_^
Author's Response: Happy Easter, sc4e! (Unless you don't celebrate Easter, in which case... happy pretty spring day!) Thank you sooo much for the review, and I should be updatin' soon! It's fantastic to have new reviewers around. ^_^
THIS IS THE BEST WRITTEN FANFICTION EVER! I love love loved the epilogue. Yay all my favorite characters end up together! Oh and I couldn't help but stalk the reviews.. and I was curious: Who was Jordan originally going to marry? (Although I LOVED the Giorgi Jordan ship... will we ever see how they got together?)
I loved the Merlin-Jordan conversation and a little Dumbledore touch ;) And I loved the post-post-Hogwarts touch too! Nigel sounds cool (the name) and his character is SO MUCH like me... a complete klutz!
I can't wait for Pride and Pre-Juiced Plums :)
Author's Response: HELLO HELLO HELLO! I am so glad you liked this! Jordan was originally going to marry an unnamed Muggle, who in my mind was going to be Giorgi, but I was never going to address it in the context of the story because I felt like two ships was enough! But here's how the Jordan/Giorgi ship went down-- they always liked each other when they were teenagers but they were too awkward to do anything about it. Fast forward five years after graduation, Jordan is pretty successful and he's had several relationships (most of 'em ending pretty badly) and he's experienced, and he meets Giorgi again (this happens in Pride and Prejuiced Plums) and magic happens. But if you want to read a little bit of Jordan/Giorgi, there is some in a one-shot I have up on MNFF called "Hanky Panky." (It's a Christmas story!)
I love the name Nigel... I always have, since I was little. Mainly because I love Nigel Thornberry. Too much. But my theory is, name a kid Nigel and he HAS to turn out to be cool to make up for his name! Interesting fact about Nigel Potter-- he is practically a Squib. Hopefully, I'll write a story someday that takes place when Jordan's in his forties, a continuation of this epilogue, but I've actually written a bunch of drabbles and short stuff with Nigel and friends. He's smart, but he just isn't good at magic. He's still very well-liked and has success with girls, but it causes a lot of problems in school. Hopefully I get to do more with him (and his friends) because I'm kinda intrigued by him!
AWWWWWWW!!!!! That was my only reaction throughout the whole chapter. I love the happy endings ^-^ Aw no, this story is coming to an end :( Are you going to write prequels or sequels? Oh wait Pride and Prejuiced Plums is a sequel. Never mind.
I LOVE GIORGI. She is AWESOME. And I loved how Jordan hugged her. Yayyyy :) I was waiting for that for a lonnggg time. Please tell me they'll reveal feelings atleast in the epilogue *puppy dog eyes*.
Author's Response: Thank youuuu! This is actually not the last chapter... there is an epilogue and another chapter before that! There's Pride and Prejuiced Plums, but I MIIIGHT actually write a story about when they're in their forties, or one about their first year... you never know! And I am so glad that you like Giorgi... hehe, I think she's adorable. ^_^
