Summary: Two scenes from the life of Severus Snape.
As a die-hard Sev fan, I say thank you! This is very good!
Summary: Dean Thomas is not a wizard. Wizards aren’t real. He knows that! However, a letter from a mysterious man, who claims to be his father, turns this belief upside down. In the process of discovering who he really is, Dean discovers a lot more than he bargained for.
Oooh, an evil cliffie! It's really good so far, can't wait for more!
Author's Response: Evil? No, no. It\'s good. It\'s very good. Muahaha
Only kidding! The next chapter is currently hanging out with my lovely beta. Hopefully, *crosses fingers and toes* it will be done shortly. I\'m glad you like it! This is truly my favorite of all that I\'ve written.
Lord Voldemort: The Musical! (Les Miserables Potterized!) by Schmerg_The_Impaler
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 40]
Summary: Yet another musical twisted by yours truly, it's the tale of Voldemort's life set to the tune of my Les Miserables soundtrack!
The real musical of Les Miserables was created by Claude-Michel Schönberg, Herbert Kretzmer, and Alain Boublil.
There is some violence and it really is not a silly musical-- there are a few funny parts, but there are some pretty sad or intense bits. AND LOTS OF PEOPLE DIE. And there are some cannibalism-happy bits with Fenrir, including a whole song called "Man Eat Man." Beware.
Absolutely amazing! Just amazing! But I'm still waiting for that "Wicked" rendotion! You are my hero, Schmergo!
Author's Response: Aw man, I wanted to be a heroine! No, but really, thank you so much! I do love Wicked, but I\'m having trouble thinking of a reference frame. DH is too complicated to cover just in the span of one moosical. I was thinking of doing something about Snape, but this Les Mis thing has a lot of Snape in it, so I don\'t know.
I have to words to describe this! "Bring him Home, Revised" was amazing, just like everything else! My compliments!
Author's Response: Oh, yay! Not very many people on MNFF are familiar with Les Mis, so it\'s always exciting for me to get reviews on this. I had a lot of fun writing my spoof of Bring Him Home.
Summary: It was a huge grey beast with large fangs that were dripping with saliva. The beast snarled and began to chase after me. Will I make it? I thought to myself as I ran. Will I ever see those I love ever again? My mum, my father, my little sister? Please let me get through this! The werewolf's paws were hitting the ground with such strong force. It was catching up to me. I braced myself as I ran, ready to be knocked down by the werewolf at any second.
When Kate decided to take a stroll through the woods one night, she wasn't expecting anything bad to happen. But she didn't notice that it was a full moon that night. And she didn't know that a werewolf stalked around the forest once a month... that particular forest.
It's a good story, but you need to work on your emotional appeal. Simply stating that a character feels dread is not enough. Show some manifestations of the feeling - shaky hands/knees, or describe the feeling more vividly - I was gripped by the icy hand of fear. These need to be used not too often, but enough to make the reader feel them. Good work otherwise!
Author's Response: To be honest, this is actually my worst story on Mugglenet. I was just writing a story that popped into my head and I wasn't really focused on how I was writing. A better example of one of my stories would be Scrapbook, and I personally think I wrote that story well, and much better than this one.
Summary: Each moment is a decision, defined by the circumstances. Who knows? Had it not been for an overprotective cousin, perhaps Rose Weasley and Scorpius Malfoy could have been the best of friends. Perhaps in one point in time and space, they are. As it happens, their relationship was defined by one catalytic factor, James Potter, and now,they are sworn enemies.
This story is a chronicle of their first year at Hogwarts, and their last. It is a tale of happenstance and familial influence, of an enmity that was not theirs to decide. Read and find out how such an enmity can influence the lives of two innocent children and wreck them. Will the injury last forever?
Due to my heavy work-schedule, this fic will be on hold till early June. My apologies to all.
Well done! Very mysterious and intriguing! Funny how the fathers seem similar, somehow - both very forceful. With one sentence you establish Mrs Malfoy as the definitive dame of society. Can't wait for more!
Quite nice! Their behaviour is very well written...keep up the great work!
Summary: The day after the Last Battle as Ron counts his losses, Hermione reminds him what was worth fighting for in the first place.
Rachel, can I say that I really love this? Your writing is extremely pleasing, easy to follow and yet so deeply touching! I love the characterzation; normally I don't read Ron/Hermione because of all the cliches, but this is pure delight!
Author's Response: Thank you so much, Alice! I'm glad you like it! *hugs*
It could lie dormant for years before it manifested. And once it did, it stayed.
And that was all that Albus knew.
What a great story! I usually don't read slash, but this might be the fic to bring my attention to the genre. Your Dumbledore is exemplary. The insight is jus fabulous! Kudos to you!
Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much! Both for the review and the compliments!
Summary: Every day Draco and Ginny take walks. Even though they are physically apart, those are the only times they share.
I love your story! It is so realistic, it's a pure delight to read. Your characters are believable and solid, and your way with words is excellent. I particularly loved this sentence:
The word came suddenly, like she had been starving and just saying it would nourish her, “Draco–”
This sums up the feeling of love so fully!
Summary: Once branded by the Dark Mark, the sole most powerful sign on the planet, Bellatrix was sent on a mission. A mission that would mean everything or nothing, and she held the power to decide which. To her Lord it would prove her loyalty, her everything, and she was more than prepared to do just that.
This is one powerful story. There have been very few, if any, Bella fics that affected me so much. I think you captured her wonderfully.
Summary: We must know a person thoroughly before we can love.
It’s Christmas Eve, and Astoria Greengrass Malfoy waits for her husband’s return from work. She remembers from when she first met him to their wedding.
When Draco finally comes home, he finds a present of a different kind.
I really enjoyed this story; it's so lovely! Just a teeensy nitpick:
the boy, approximately two years older than my
"My" needs to be changed to "me."
Author's Response: Thanks for the review and nitpick. I'll edit. :) *hugs*
Ellie has always been green-eyed with jealousy over her older sister’s ability to do magic, and Marie has always taken pleasure in flaunting her magic in her younger sister’s face.
Refusing to acknowledge her own feelings, Ellie can’t help wondering, what was this feeling in the pit of her stomach, which only came when Marie was near?
It’s all left to Ben, the older brother, to sort everything out. But will Ellie ever manage to see the simple pleasures found in watching, or will her jealousy never go away?
What a lovely piece! All the while, I thought about Petunia and Lily, and how Petunia couldn't accept things the way Ellie can...or will. Well Done!
Author's Response: Yay! Lol. Wow. Uh, you know. I absolutly never thought of that. But now you mentioned it, it does seem to be that way. Haha. Thank you for pointing that out, Lisi. Lol. Maybe I should have taken inspiration from them?
Guess it's too late for that now.. Lol. -Lexy
Summary: A one-shot fic where Teddy Lupin goes to The Younger Malfoys to have lunch with them for the first time. A lot of hope for the future hangs on the success of this lunch. Read to find out what happens. ;-)
Nominated for a Quicksilver Quills in the Best Post-Hogwarts Fic category. Thank you Ari!
Very Good, especially for a first! A tiny nitpick; it's all riight, not alright. Congratulations on your first validation!
Author's Response: oh...i never knew that! thanks! :D
Summary: A death, and a man racked by grief. Is it even possible to survive a grief that goes beyond soul deep? Is it even worth surviving when you know in your heart, everything good in your life is gone?
I do not own anything you recognise. It all belongs to J. K. Rowling. I am just thankful to play in her world for a little while.
Oh, Terri... Words cannot express how touching this is. How realistic everything is. I felt so immersed in the story all the time, and there's no higher praise I can give.
Summary: The waiting room at St Mungo's is a dreary place. Ginny knows it better than many people, for she spends her days there waiting -- and hoping.
This is Equinox Chick from Hufflepuff writing for the extra credit One Floo over the Fwoopers Nest category in the Bookbasilisk Summer Challenge.
I would like to thank Apurva (DracoGurlFurever) for beta'ing this for me and making some great suggestions.
I am not JK Rowling - I doubt that shocks you.
One of my best friends has to adjust to the relatively new fact that her mother has Alzheimer's. Had she read HP, I would advise her to read this. It's so profoundly touching. When my own grandmother was recovering from her stroke, I experienced many similar emotions, since she forgot who all of us were for a while; for instance, she'd think her daughter was her sister, etc. Thank you for touching my soul in a way no other writer has.
Author's Response: Oh my word. Alice thank you for just about the best review I've ever had. I'm so sorry for your friend, for I take it that her mum is still relatively young. I hope your grandmother is recovering as well. ~Carole~
