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!
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
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.
Anyway, thank you so much for actually posting this. I know you weren't sure if you're gonna, but I sure am glad you did!
Author's Response: Katie, my love! I could kiss you at this moment, but I shan\'t because we\'re... in a public place and.... I\'m not like that. lol. Anyways, moving away from that awkward moment.... Yay! My first reviews! Though technically this one isn\'t! Because you accidently posted the same one twice! Hehe. I love you anyway, Katie-M\'lady. (audience: O.o -whispers- She seems to be getting to worse at this....) Lol. Naw. Thanks for your encouraging comments. They made me have enough courage to let the public view this with open eyes. (Audience: -handslaptoforehead- What else would they read it with? Ok. I shall stop now with our inside jokes and embaressing myself. Thanks for the review. lol. That\'s what I should have said from the beginning and left it there but I didn\'t. The End (audience: O.o Well that was gay....... We want our money back...!)
Summary: A Marauder-era fic - this story takes a look at all the characters we've come to love (and hate), as well as an OC or two thrown in for good measure. Follow the Marauders through seven years at Hogwart's, with appearances from the infamous Black sisters, Lucius Malfoy, Regulus Black, and of course the one and only Severus Snape.
There are a bunch of pairings in this story (although romance is not necessarily the central theme) to include James/Lily, Lucius/Narcissa, a splash of Lucius/Bella and unrequited Snape/Lily, and finally, plenty of Sirius/OC. Enjoy!
Over 120,000 reads! Wow! Thanks everyone!
Short, but oh so very sweet! I liked that chapter very much, because Sirius is, as you put it, 'not a very verbose young man,' and Anne, as a Slytherin, obviously isn't going to gush disgustingly, but your scene was absolutely perfect. Thank you so so so so so so much!
*sigh* Oh. That was so sweet. I just love them as a couple. Even if I do constantly feel bad for poor Severus who never shared love with another person. James and Lily are the perfect couple. They are just so beautiful together, especially the way you portrayed them. It's just lovely.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for another terrific chapter!
Ooh, nice! I loved your description of their kiss. I also like how Sirius was so clueless around a girl who didn't idolize him and wasn't all hormones and smiles around him. He's so cute when he's clueless.
It was a good chapter for Remus, yeah, but so [i]sad[/i]! I mean, he couldn't ever be in a relationship with a girl because he's a werewolf. That would break my heart. I mean, if the girl really loved him, she wouldn't reject him like he feared. Like Tonks. She loved him even though she knew what he was, and Micheal seemed like that kind of girl, too. She was sweet and nice.

I laughed so hard at that last part! Oh, that was just perfect!
Going back to being sober, I really wish Severus could make it work; get nice, not join Voldemort, not be surly and mean all the time, not kill Dumbledore and (of course) not be killed himself, but it's not to be. -sniff-
It was still a great chapter, though. You're a really good writer, and you can do dark and angsty just as wonderfully as you do the beautiful, perfect love parts.
Um, actually. . . I think I will stop here and just know about all the good times the Marauders had.
No offense to you or your writing at all! I love(d) this story! It's really wonderfully written, and I always love your stories, but I. . . I've read a lot of tragedy these days, and real life is such that I just want a fluffy fic right now.
I'd much rather just think about all the good times the Fantabulous Four (and Anne, Lily and Severus, of course) had, and not all the sadness and grief that came later.
Thanks for all the good times! This is a really wonderful story, and you are and awesome writer. I'll be sure to check out all future stories.
Ooo, poor Severus. So selt-loathing. :-(
He needs a hug.
Well, I think Remus should tell Lily. Knowing her, she'd be all sympathetic and only like him better for it. Poor Remus. He needs a hug just like Severus.
Poor Regulus. I hope his ears are okay.
Summary: Any time a person dies, they leave an empty spot in the hearts of many.
But what if it's more than a mere hole? What if half of you is torn away? And what if you're not the only person to feel this way about this single person?
Can you ever find a way to be whole again?

Oh, my. . .
So far this story is completely transfixing. I swear I'll leave a longer review once finish it, but right now I just need to do that. . .
Author's Response: :D Thanks!
I can't decide whether I should cry our laugh. . . I'm doing both at once, instead. *sniffles wetly*
That is one of the most beautiful stories I've ever read. . . and definitely in the top ten of the saddest. I. . . I just love it. I can't pick a certain part. . . the whole thing is just wonderfully. . . sad? Happy? I can't decide. . .
Thank you for a completely astounding story. I am truly privileged to read it.
Author's Response: Oh. My. Thank you!!! That has got to be one of the best compliments I have ever received *huggles* Thank you!!
Summary: Ron makes mistakes. He loses his way and drifts off path. But he always fixes it. Coming home on Christmas Eve, he hopes this will be the same. But will Hermione forgive him? Can Rose?
I am kask of Slytherin for the ' Winter's Tales: By The Fireside' prompt.
That was beautiful! -wipes eyes because it was so lovely- The ending was perfect. You got the relationships between Ron and Hermione and Rose and Ron and Scor and Rose and Rose a Hugo and Rose and Lily and Al and Hugo and Rose and Al -whew!- perfectly. I thank you for another wonderful and amazing story!
Author's Response: Thank you! :)
Summary: What's a Dark Lord to do when things don't go your way? Write a letter and complain to the author, of course.
Hilarious! My brother read it over my shoulder, and he was laughing so hard, he had to sit down!
I just love number four! Especially the spork! Pure genius!
Author's Response: I\'m thrilled you and your brother both liked it! :-D Thanks to both of you for reading it!
Summary: We all know that growing up isn't as easy as it always seems. Well, what happens when you mix that with a twisted love life, an overzealous mother, and a group of Marauding boys? That's right, chaos! Follow Roseanna Marie Parker in her adventure in her sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and how she learn more about herself and the world around her. Rio Parker is no average girl, struggling with her strict mother and her urge to rebel. It is bound to be an eventful year at Hogwarts with the four Marauders and their accomplices!
Wow! So far this is a really amazing story, and I cannot wait for the next chapter! I love the idea of a rebellious tomboy who wants to be noticed as a girl (mainly because that is my problem right now). I can really relate to Rio, and she is really. . . real. You have done a great job with her, and seeing her develop along the course of the story will be fun and exciting!
Thank you for the wonderful chapter!
Summary: These lives we live are not bright...
Petunia wishes she were a star.
These lives we live are not worth memory...
Peter wishes to be like his friends.
The lives we live are just tiles.
Regulus wishes he were alive.
Every life means something.
*gasp* This story. . . *gasp* is the most. . . *gasp* amazing and completely. . . *gasp astonishingly good thing I have ever read in my life and I wish I could write half as good as you, because you are the most magnificent writer I have ever had the privilege of reading. *gasps just for good measure*
This story left me completely breathless. I especially liked this line about Lily: 'She is a beginning and an end and the stunning climax and she is unforgettable.' That is such a powerful line. . . *wipes eyes* And the things about Sirius. . . the whole 'ripping the paper that had been there for longer than anyone could remember' thing. . . that was just so perfect. . . that's always what I felt he did. Like, he saw the chains everyone was in, and he didn't like them, so he just ripped 'em off. . . I have always admired Sirius for being able to do that, and if I wasn't already completely different from everyone else, with barely any rules in my life at all, I would totally change something that needed to be changed. As it is, I am the Sirius in my small life, so I don't really need to worry about that. . . but. . . the whole story is just so POWERFUL. . . there really isn't a better word for it.
Thank you SO SO SO much for gracing my humble little life with this huge (figuratively) story.
Author's Response: Lol, Katie, I\'m really flattered. But if I\'m the most magnificent writer you\'ve ever read, I\'m pretty sure you should start reading some really good stuff. I\'m not magnificent, but I\'ll go with at least \'good\' for now. Thank you very much for this review and for telling me your favorite lines. I love knowing the favorite lines!
Summary: There is rarely beauty in the world. But Charlie has found his little bit of beauty. But how long will it last?
Guiding Ray of Sunlight's submission to the Gryfindor Research In-House Challenge.
I came here to pamper this story. . . and what a story I found! I have to admit, I was slightly wrong-footed with the whole vampire thing. . . but it was really amazing how you wrote about her (the vampire). *sobs*
Why do you always write sad stories!? They make me think too much. . . *accusingly, but isn't really mad*
Well. . . thank you for another completely amazing story. . . *is still vaguely bowled-over* it was wonderful!
Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked it, Katie!! Why don;t you like vampires? It wasn\'t a Twilight vamp! The reason I write angsty stories is very simple:: it\'s a bad habit ;) Thanks for the review! <3 Sunray
Summary: The Third Year at Hogwarts just happens to be a trying year. With the stress of too many classes, keeping Harry's godfather a secret, keeping a forbidden relationship a secret, pretty much trying to become the perfect student, it could be too much to handle.
Hermione's sure she's got this. She'll have no problem. Everything will be fine. But after her control starts to slip out of her grip, she searches for something to keep in check. And she finds it. Controlling what she eats seems to be the perfect way to keep things in check. But when she starts to like what she sees in the mirror....
Hmmmm! I can't wait to see where this story goes! I've always sorta worried about Hermione that year. . . I could never ever handle that kind of stress with classes, and I'm three years older than her age now! I mean, all those classes, the thought she'd have to put into the time-turner, all the homework, trying not to let anybody know what she's doing. . . sheesh.
Anyway, I totally can not wait for an update!
Summary: This is a poem I wrote about the Marauders for my Spring 2008 poetry class.
Heh, heh! Quite a cute little poem, but with a meaningful bit at the end. I like the 'But at the time Mischief was Managed' part. Hawhaw!
Thank you so much for bestowing this small piece of wonderfulness upon little undeserving me!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review, glad you enjoyed the poem! :)
Summary: “We all know that all of the Time Turners were smashed during the battle with the Death Eaters at the Ministry of Magic.
However, I, being the clever little witch I am, invented a time machine.
Have you ever wondered, what was the story behind the torn photograph Harry Potter found at Grimmauld Place?
So, let’s take a trip together. Back to 1981. July 31, 1981 to be exact.
Buckle your seatbelts and hold on, this may be a bumpy ride.”
Awwwww. They were such a cute family. . . it makes me sad to think what's going to happen later. *sniff* But I'm glad they had happy times while they still could. . . and I especially like how Harry could fly without even thinking about it. That was very cute and funny. I like to think that if James had lived, it would have nicely humbled him to know that his son was a better Quiddtich player than he was/is. Or maybe it would just inflate his ego to know that that was his son out there. Hmm. Probably the latter.
Anyway, great story! I definitely want to go read your other stories now. . . I should do that sometime. However, I am really in need of those brownies. . .
Thank you for the wonderful story!
Author's Response: I agree it would have inflated James\'s ego to no end that Harry was so good at Quidditch. Please do read the other stories. I hope you enjoy them as well. Thank you for your review. I only have some cyber cookies, but they are chocolate. Passing some to you. Terri
