I am an avid reader of all things HP, and I love every story I read here. My favorite authors are Subversa, Soap, KASK and Crystallic Rain, but I like many others.
Right now I am working on a Hannah Abbot story set during the Trio's (and Hannah's, as she's in their year) fifth year. Hannah's parents have been brutally murdered by Lord Voldemort and his minions, and Hannah joins Dumbledore's Army, eager to learn how to defend herself and fight against this scourge. She's more focused then she's ever been, but she hasn't told anyone else why she's so different this year. Her friends notice the change in her, but she cannot bring herself to tell anyone else about what happened. However, someone enters her life that just might change that. . .
Okay, yeah, that last part got really silly-sounding, but oh, well.
Please read the favorite stories! They're all wonderful!
Summary: Everything is going swimmingly in the lives of Sirius Black and Hermione Granger. But that doesn't make a very good story, does it?
Everything is going swimmingly UNTIL the Ministry (infiltrated by several former Death Eaters) passes a horrifying new law that threatens their relationship. How will they cope with this new situation? And will Ron ever learn to say the right thing at the right time?
The much-begged-for sequel to "Smells Like Sirius Black".
Oh dear. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. This is a very big problem. I can't wait to find out how it goes! Still waiting impatiently here!
Oooh! I can't wait until the next chapter is out! That was a very interesting plot twist, with Malfoy and Sirius. I think we all knew that the Ministry was going to find out about the baby sometime or other, and that something bad was going to happen when they did. I don't want to think about what decision Sirius is going to make. I think he'll try to tell the Order about Voldemort AND try to keep Hermione and the baby out of jail. That's what I think. I can't really decide what I HOPE will happen, because if what I THINK will happen happens, then something ELSE will happen, like Lucius finding out about Sirius telling the Order, and then doing something that gets Hermione put in Azkaban. Well, I will definitely wait impatiently for the next chapter. It might be the longest wait ever. (but probably not)
Author's Response: That was a long review! I love it. Thanks so much for reading!!
Summary: Molly Weasley decides to share an event from her girlhood with Ginny and Hermione.
That was very...educating. I think that it's good that there are some stories with good morals here. (I'm not insulting any stories; please don't take it the wrong way, anybody!) I think this was a good, strong thing to post, although I don't think I would be such a Gryffindor as Mrs. Weasley. I don't think I could be brave enough to post this, but I'm glad you did.
Author's Response: Thanks, your review means a lot to me; I have to admit I was rather nervous about how this story would be received.
Summary: Selina, a third year Slytherin wakes up one day to discover she is bleeding. Convinced death is imminant, there is only one person she can talk to- her Head of House, Professor Snape.
That is hilarious! I think that's probably the thing that most girls are worried about. And I bet Snape was totally mortified. I wish I had been there to see it. Of course, that would mean that I would be Selina, so that wouldn't be that great. But still! I laughed just about until I cried. It was close. Loved it!
Author's Response: Thank you very much for the kind review! Poor Snape. Although both he and Selina pulled through it without too many obvious scars.
I really loved it, although I'm not supposed to write that. I really loved all the descriptive words, and the soft, gentle, (how should I say this...) sway of the words. It was Ginny, right? I like the part in the middle where they kiss. That has a very sad, lonesome quality to it. Very good. I hope you had as much fun writing it as I did reading it (even though I know that sounds SO cheesy), because I felt really at peace when I read about the lake, and the colors. The picture you put in my mind is just so beautiful. I'm sure it'll stay with me for a long, long time. Thanks so much for sharing this with all of us. It was wonderful!
Author's Response: aw, thanks! Yes, it was Ginny. ;) ~Evie
Summary: She offered him her love and he rejected her. She had been willing to offer him anything but he destroyed all that she held dear. However, a daughter of the house of Black does not sit idly by, wallowing in self-pity. No, she bides her time and strikes when he is weakest.
Nominated for the 2007 Quicksilver Quills Best History/Mystery Story!
I loved this! I ESPECIALLY like the way all the small plot problems were cleared up quite nicely, if I do say so myself. I really like the fact that she was an R.A.B and so was Regulus. (although she was really an W.R.A.B, but still) I thank you very much for a wonderful read.
Author's Response: I\'m so glad you enjoyed it! Thank you for your lovely review!
That was a very touching story (I'm assuming it's over; should I be corrected? I'm sorry if I'm wrong; that just seemed like a pretty good stopping point, although I would love it if it went on a bit more, though there really isn't that much to add.)! I absolutely loved the character of Walburga, and I liked how she was and R. A. B., in a roundabout way. I also like how you added information from D.H; that was a nice touch. I deeply enjoyed this story, and I hope there are many more to come!
Author's Response: No, you\'re definitely correct, this was the end, it was intended more or less as an epilogue. After I killed Regina (which I feel rather bad about) I realized that Kreacher was the only being left who cared deeply for her. I sort of wanted to highlight that. I\'m hoping to write more about her and Alph\'s childhood at some point, but that will definitely be a separate story from this one. I\'m really glad that you enjoyed this one, thank you for your lovely review!
Summary: In post-war England, the Ministry of Magic is closing Azkaban Prison, and prisoners are being released to family members. What will happen to Severus Snape, who has no family? Hermione Granger has a notion of what can be done.
Oh, wow! I love it! I just wish there was more to read; I was totally swept up in the story! I am already impatient for the next chapter! Love it!
Oh man. Words cannot describe how much I loved this story. I loved to bits. Nope, doesn't quite work. I loved it more than anything. Nope, too cheesy. Well, anyway. I absolutely loved it. It is the best story I have read so far. I loved it how Severus was finally recognized for the hero that (I think) he is. And my favorite part was when Ron was talking to Hermione at the wedding, and she corrected him when he called Severus 'Snape' That was totally awesome. I hope I love other stories that you write/wrote, and I am looking forward to many more good ones. Thanks for everything!
You are kind of putting off the consummation, but it's still really, really good.
Summary: I'm not really sure how or when it happened. I'd say somewhere between when he saved my life (and didn't even mention it!) and our late-night conversation. Or maybe in third year, but I just repressed it. No matter when it happened, something clicked with James Potter, and I felt like a fool. Especially when I learned that he had a girlfriend. Hopefully with stories of a nude Petunia and my charm, he'll see the light.
This will be six chapters.
I really like this, and I like how it never really says who's talking. That was a nice addition to an already totally harmonic story. If you can decipher that, then maybe you will be happy, but even I couldn't think of a better word, so you'll just have to trust that I wasn't totally insulting you. I really did think that it had a definite beat to it, and that even if you didn't plan it that way, that it was actually kind of peaceful. I loved it. I hop you write more like it.
Author's Response: Thank you! I love your reviews! :D Look out for the next chapter!
Summary: At last, his grinning face came into the light as he threw himself onto the grass beside her. He leant down so that his lips were almost touching hers and whispered, 'You made me come a damn long way this time.'
Secrets dance through whispered words...as the light fades.
Oh. My. God.
That was the best ever. That was the most, I don't know how to say it, exciting story ever. It had my heart beating so fast the whole time! oh my gosh! I could never, ever, write something that good. And I'm not trying to put myself down. I'm just stating the obvious. That was the best, most descriptive story I think I have ever read.
Author's Response: Thank you ever so much for your lovely words. I\'m sure I don\'t quite deserve them, but they\'re lovely to hear! I\'m really happy that you enjoyed the descriptions and really felt with the characters.
Summary: An attack on the Leaky Cauldron sets a vile plan in motion. But when Neville Longbottom has nothing left, will he be willing to be the last man standing?
Second place winner for the Mini-Gauntlet Challenge.
Oh, wow! I really need to find out what happens next! This is a short story so far, but I have a feeling it's going to get very interesting... and I can't wait until it does!
Author's Response: I have this prologue followed by two chapters and an epilogue. Don\'t worry, things get a bit more interesting.

Summary: Moaning Myrtle has been spying on students again!
This time, it just so happens to be Sirius Black. He's alone and in the Prefects' Bathroom. Does it get any better?
This was a welcome relief from all the Dark/angsty stories I've been reading. Thank you! I loved it, it was so funny!
Author's Response: Sugary sweet with humor on top! That\'s they way I like it....:D
Summary: Andromeda is left alone with Teddy, or so she thinks.
I really liked that. I can't really say anything except that my favorite part was the funeral, when it had Harry and Ginny, and Harry was talking to Andromeda. I also really like when Harry and Ginny are taking care of Teddy, and they have those "He/she'll be such a good father/mother to my children" looks on their faces. That was really well done.
Author's Response: Thank you, Katie. I\'m very glad you liked it. ~Ken
Summary: DEATHLY HALLOWS SPOILERS
Many were heartbroken when they saw Remus and Tonks dead. But how did they die?
Ahhh. That was good, though I thought Remus' death was a little sudden. I mean, dying in someone's arms is all well and good, but 'And he died in Tonks’ arms.' is a little TOO sudden, don't you think? And the duel between Tonks and Bellatrix was a little short. I think it would have been a bit better if there was a heated dueling scene. Other than that, I have nothing but praise for this little fic.
The way Tonks knew the curse was going to hit, and they way you described it as 'a bittersweet moment' was totally perfect.
Author's Response: I understand what you\'re saying. I think you\'re right, too. I just wrote and didn\'t really think about it. I was hoping someone would like that part with Tonks. Thanks for the great review!
Summary: Her cries echo in the dark drawing room; her screams vibrate from within. He had to help her, to save her, to get her out - but how could he, when he himself was just as confined, just as lost, just as helpless?
Written for the OWL Romance Class Week 5. Not a lot of romance, but it is pretty dark.
That was. . . extreme. I loved it! I really should stop saying that about every story I read, but there have been some memorable times when I didn't, and in this case, it's true. The way Draco thinks about how Hermione's eyes are sad and desperate, in contrast to the way they're normally fiery and bright, is just so heartbreaking. I really never thought of it is so much detail, and you really helped. That is exactly how I think Draco could have been feeling at that point: helpless, sad, depressed, scared, even angry. is there going to be any more? Or does it end here? I think it would be great either way. I thank you for yet another great read here on MNFF.
Summary: Nymphadora Tonks wasn’t always the charming and vivacious Auror everyone thought she was. She never let anyone come close enough to truly get to know her. So why did she feel so vulnerable every time she looked into Remus Lupin's eyes?
Nice start! I really like it so far. I like how Sirius is all playful and careless. Totally him. And I like how "Nymmie" is so, well, unreachable. But I hope we find out more about her as the story progresses. Unless that's the end, but I really hope not, although it's not bad the way it is, and it could just be a peek into life after. . . whenever this is after. I assumed it's the third book, but I don't really know. Maybe it's AU. But I really like, it and am looking forward to the next addition.
Author's Response: It is AU, and the setting is somewhere in OotP. Don\'t worry, it\'s definitely not the end because I have to give Tonks a lot more depth to her character, and why she\'s so secretive. I wanted people to see the other side of her, and I hope I\'m doing well so far. Oh, and I love writing Sirius. He\'s so fun. Thanks for the review!
First part in the "Lamenting Changes" series
Luna Lovegood has never been one to fit in with the crowd, whether she tries to or not, and the one main reason is because of her father’s magazine, The Quibbler, and the constant rubbish it seems to be printing.
Noah Wipple has always been one who lived by facts and avoided the ones who didn't, so when he meets Luna they automatically clash and Noah decides he must avoid the aggravating girl at all costs.
But fate seems anxious for some entertainment because when the students get assigned to write a report together in Transfiguration class, Luna is paired with Noah and this rather odd pair must learn to work together; even if it kills them.
Luna Lovegood/ Original Character
Loooooved iiiiiiiit! That was wonderful. Luna was absolutely PERFECT. I loved her spontaneity. It is masterfully done. I can't wait for another installment. I'm afraid I can't say it's VERY funny, but it's also not that. . .erm. . . unfunny. . . so yeah.
Author's Response: Ha! Thanks for the review, Katie-my-baby. Like I said in my author\'s notes, I know that it probably won\'t be laugh out loud funny but it is meant to be entertaining and as long as it does that, I\'m perfectly happy. As you know m\'dear, I\'m more about the sarcastic and whitty (-wink, wink-) come backs. It\'s harder when making up the entire comversation. Thanks again for your support! ~Beauty Fades
Yay! I have the first review! Hooooooorrrrrrrraaaaaayyyyyyy! Anyhoo.
I like how Noah's mom is so crazy. In a good way. I like crazy people. I think his mom's kinda like Luna, but I think that should make him like Luna a little better, if only because he's lived with a person like her for as long as he's lived.
But the story is coming along very well so far! I like how your characters stay the same, instead of developing a bunch of new talents and characteristics in one chapter, although it is, of course, good to develop them. But not give them super powers. I'll stop now. I'm getting off topic.
Author's Response: -poses- The real first review! -randomly walks out again-
