Summary: 12 Days of Christmas - HP Style - Focuses on Barty Crouch Jr.
(Although I don’t really think that this is that disturbing… I think I still ought to post a warning.)
Warning: This is not a happy and humourous Christmas-sy tale. It gives us a brief look at the disturbing deranged mind of Barty Crouch Jr.
This is really good. I can't find many good fics regarding Barty Crouch Jr., and this one is really well done.
Author's Response: Thanks although I can\'t take all the credit... Forum challenges and and twisted mind does produce strange results. :)
Summary: A Mary Sue Parody fic! Infinity Babe has moved from New York to Hogwarts with her 'oh-so-evil' parents. Can Harry and the gang stop her from warping canon? Not to be taken seriously. Rated PG-13 for a reason. Scriptfic.
This story is so funny, I was rolling with laughter on the floor. LOL. This is wicked awsome. It reminds me of those Not another Teen Movie and Scary Movie flicks. Hope you post more chapters.
Summary: One never recovers completley from a loss of a loved one. Especially one that you never knew you loved.
Um, hi! I want to say this is a really great story. Sorry if this review is akward.
Author's Response: Thank you! No, it isn\'t awkward at all :)
Summary: Cassandra Pralent was your typical pureblood- rich, spoiled, and prepared to go to Hogwarts as soon as she turned eleven. But Professor McGonagall delivers horrible news- Cassandra is a Squib. When she is rejected at home and at school, she is forced to accept unlikely friends. And just when Cassandra feels life is getting better, her fate becomes entwined with that of the Trio in a most sinister fashion…
Thank you so much for updating! It's been a while, isn't it? I am just reviewing to say that this chapter is great and that I can't wait to read more.
Author's Response: It has been awhile, but never fear! Chapter twelve is with my beta and I\'m about a quarter of the way through Chapter thirteen- I want to finish before Deathly Hallows comes out. Thanks for the review!
Summary: Challenge 1- "Apathy is Lethal" for Hufflepuff House.
When Percy leaves the Ministry he spots a group of intruders.
This is an amazing poem. Percy not telling the Minister about this is JUST the thing that he would do.
Author's Response: Thank you. Percy, Percy, Percy, what are we going to do about him?
Summary: A Gryffindor entry for the Spring Challenge, challenge number one. How did Hagrid survive his time in Azkaban during CoS? Read and find out!
DUDE! This has gotta be one of the most strangest and most interesting stories I have ever read. It is really weird and interesting to get into Hagrids mind and read what he is thinking. Cheers!
Author's Response: Oh, Thank you, thank you, I now know that at least one person whom I did not beg on my hands and knees to read it has looked at this story, and, even better, liked it. You made my weekend! I started out by thinking about a story called \"What They Carried.\" That story was about all the things the guys in this platoon, I guess, carried in their packs in Vietnam. In talking about what they carried with them, it told you a lot about each person, how they were coping, etc. At the same time I was also thinking about Sirius, and how he said he survived Azkaban by thinking about his innocence, which was not a happy thought, so they couldn\'t take it away from him. Like Sirius, the only thing Hagrid carried into Azkaban was the stuff in his head, and I tried to figure out what that was. I had to do a lot of re-writing on it, and it was rejected once for punctuation, so it was not just \"Write it down and send it in...\" Thanks for reading and responding!
Summary: Second Place in Challenge 2- “Rebirth, the phoenix dies and is reborn again. Isn't it amazing how beauty can blossom from something that begins so ugly.” for Hufflepuff House
A poem about lycanthropy.
OMG. This is so beautiful. I have tears in my eyes now (bad news since I am at the school library at the moment and its crowded). It is such a beautifully written poem.
Author's Response: Lol, I hate when I start laughing or crying at fanfiction when others are around, but you do get some interesting looks. Thanks!
Summary: This story has been reposted! Harry Potter is dying after a final battle with Voldemort. Ginny Weasley visits him at St. Mungo's, and confesses her true feelings for him.

Come along as Ginny experiences emotions that she never knew before, and goes through great lengths all for the boy she loves...
Yeah. Its back! Thank you so much Wonderful! I love this story so much.

Hey, I clicked on the link to Chapter 3, and I couldn't get access because it wasn't vaildated. What is going on and why are others able to read that chapter when I can't?
Author's Response: I don\'t think anyone had read chap 3, it\'s not validated yet on my account, so don\'t worry it should be coming soon.
Summary: Written for the One-Shot Owl Challenge for Hufflepuff House.
I hate my name. Evangeline was once a proud and beautiful name, but I am no longer, “A bringer of good news”. I wish they would change my name. Maybe Deirdra, which means, “sorrowful wanderer,” would be a good choice. Laraine and Lola both mean sorrowful, those would certainly do. Or maybe Dolores, which means, “Lady of Sorrows,” yes, I certainly am a lady of sorrows.
Well, an owl of sorrows anyway.
Like everyone else, I have to say this is one of the saddest fics I have ever read. You captured Evangelines feelings about Cedric and the grief his family suffered just so perfectly and so beautifully.
I love that name, Evangeline. Thats why I wanted to read this fic. Do you watch Lost? The actress who plays Kate Austen's name is Evangeline Lilly.
Author's Response: Thank you! No, actually, I decided what I wanted my character\'s name to mean, and then searched on a baby naming website. And when I came across Evangeline, I knew it had to be!
Summary: It is England in the early 1800's, Bonapart is reigning in France and tensions between the two countries are running high. Phillip must face the secrets of his past while still surviving in the present. It takes the portrait of a remarkable girl to teach him that he can find trust in a world gone mad.
Winner of the June/July monthly challenge, #1: autobiography, and overall winner. By coppercurls of Hufflepuff house.
This is probably one of the best fics I have ever read.
I loved how you started it off with a letter about a painting and then have it blend into a flashback that goes deeper into the story. How you not reveal the identity of the person who wrote the letter definitely added a lot of mystery. It was a great beginning for a story.
The character of Helen really intrigued me. I loved how you addressed how she is related to Hegla Hufflepuff without directly implying it. She sounds like a very sweet and beautiful character, yet have her whole life steeped in tragedy. Helen sounds like the perfect tragic heroine. The ending really resolved her need to finally be in Hogwarts.
I would also like to address the point of view. I thought it was interesting to read this story that is told through the eyes of the artist painting the portrait. I’ve only read stories about the subjects of the paintings, so I found it refreshing to read something associated with art and told through the view point of a very devout painter.
And so ends my little review.
Author's Response: Thank you for the compliments, I wanted this fic to both stand alone while still tying into the wizarding world so it is nice to know that all my threads fell in place. Helen really was the beginning to this entire piece, everything was designed around her, even though I realized she would never work as the narrator. I have to confess that with most art, I find the artist more interesting than the subject. The art is good, but theirs is the hand that created such beauty. It seems like a very powerful thing. Anyway, thank you for the review and I hope I answered your questions with all of my rambles.

I love this story and I want to know when you are going to update.
Author's Response: I have actually put the 3rd chappie into the que! I\'m so happy! *does dance*
Summary: This is my take on what happens in the 'last battle' between Voldemort and Harry. After the fifth Horcrux is found and destroyed by Hermione, Ron, Harry and Ginny, there is one more left to be demolished and Voldemort will no longer be immortal. Will Harry be able to reach the last Horcrux in time in order to defeat Voldemort? Are his instincts leading him in the right direction or is it leading him into more danger than he expected? Read and find out! I promise you won't be disappointed.
This wonderful banner was made by Whittyleah and the drawing in the background was drawn by HPobsession (my old Beta =[).
Hi, great story and everything, but I don't think your allowed to have a banner displayed alongside your story. You can have it on your profile, but you can't submitt a banner in your summary!
Summary: The final battle has passed, and the war has ended, but what is the outcome? How do you deal with losing a loved one? This one-shot centres around Ginny and Harry's relationship.
Hi! I really want to tell you that I loved this fic. It is so sad! I loved the way you captured everyones emotions and the imagery that you used. Can you please write a sequel about Ginny's baby?
Author's Response: Thank you for your lovely review! I\'m trying to write the sequel, but exams are about to start, so there may be some delay. Thanks
Summary: It is the natural order of things.
OMG! I felt like I wanted to cry. Even though I never read anything about Amaryllis, I couldn't help but sympathize her. Poor Remus!
Author's Response: Like I said, it\'s absolutely amazing to have this effect on readers. Thank you/
Summary: During the construction of Hogwarts, the founders are all doing their part to create the first school of its kind. Everyone except Salazar Slytherin, that is. When Godric dreams of the nightmarish project Salazar is undertaking, it is up to him to set things straight. Warning: This story does not completely comply with canon, merely to explore possible alternative reasons for Slytherin's departure from Hogwarts.

Challenge Prompt: Dreams
I think this is a great piece of writting. I loved how you described the dream and the intense mood that was set in in the later parts.
Author's Response: Thank you! That\'s really what I was going for since the Chamber of Secrets and the plotline that goes with is really frightening and intense, so I wanted to show that foreshadowing. I really appreciate the review!! ~GG
Summary: In the Post-war times, not all is well with the Magical world. The survivors have much to overcome and the Ministry has an image to rebuild. Can a former Death Eater ever redeem himself? Can the Magical community survive the Ministry's attempts at rebuilding their image?
Goodness, MadMuggle! I see there is no reviews here. Let me make you feel better by telling you that your story absolutley rocks! I love this story and feel very honored to have a story dedicated to me (because it has never happened to me before).
Author's Response: Thanks! It seemed only fitting to dedicate it to you as I wrote it for you.
Summary: The Seven Hallows were created for good, and for ages they did the bidding of good- but when they turn to the side of evil they are unstoppable... Written for the New Year's Challenge- Deathly Hallows by Just Tink of Hufflepuff.
Dude, this is like 300 times better than my story. I loved the way you portrayed the Hallows. Just the mood that was set made this a chilling read.
Author's Response: thanks so much! I was definetely going for that chilling effect. But I loved your story as well! I think that in this case, honestly, the two are so different in type it\'s difficult to compare, however. Thanks for the review!
Summary: Harry is severely injured on the hunt for the Horcruxes. First of three parts.
Hey, I thought this was really well done. I didn't recognize the Signs reference because I've never seen that movie before.
Author's Response: Thanks! I\'m glad you liked it. And Signs is a pretty good movie; it borders on being hokey at times, but it\'s got some good scenes. ^_^ Thanks for reviewing!
