Lindsey Tonks appears to be a normal, almost invisible Hogwarts student, but underneath her is someone far from normal. What the world doesn't know is that Lindsey is the daughter of two well-known imprisoned Death Eaters, and has an identity she must hide from the world. Underneath Lindsey is a girl named Lyra Lestrange, a girl who is meant to be a secret forever. But will it last forever?
*Begins in GoF and follows the series through DH.
**Will appeal to fans of the Black family! Prominent characters are Bellatrix, Tonks, Andromeda, Sirius, and (to an extent) Narcissa.
Part Four Synopsis:
It's the summer after Albus Dumbledore's death, and the whole world is falling to Voldemort and the Death Eaters. Broken-hearted Lyra, unable to return to Hogwarts, must go into hiding with her family. It doesn't last long, and eventually Lyra is faced with a choice: join or die. Lyra's decision comes with many surprises, including a new ally who follows her to the final battle of good versus evil. While Lyra's path may seem clear, she finds herself torn between two sides for the final time, and in the end, despite tragedy and loss, Lyra accomplishes the impossible...which defies all of the agreements she and her family ever made.
Three years later, the fic has been completely finished! Enjoy reading it without having to wait for new chapters. Thanks to those who patiently waited and faithfully reviewed!
Hi Miss Lyra :)
Sorry for being quiet but I have been busy with college. As you already know I love your story and I thought this was a great chapter.
Not sure if I have a favorite, but iI really enjoyed this one and I loved the Kreacher part.
Looking forward to the next chapters.
Hey! I was wondering where you were. I understand about being busy, though. I'm busy with school, too, and I'm just in high school, so I can't even begin to imagine college. But thanks for dropping me a review. I'm glad you like the Kreacher part. It seems like a few people do. I thought it might be a good way to end a chapter.
Summary: A potion has been created that has the ability to strip a wizard of their powers: a potion the Ministry of Magic couldn't wait to get their hands on. After the Battle of Hogwarts, lesser convicted Death Eaters are given a choice: go to Azkaban, or spend the rest of their lives as Muggles. While many people refused such a degrading option as a matter of pride, one Draco Malfoy chose the potion. Now, cast into the city of London, Draco both struggles with, and eventually enjoys his adaptation into the Muggle way of life.
But what happens when the effects of the potion turn out to be not-so permanent?
Let be honest: I had lost the interst in HP fanfiction and the only story I were reading was a favorite of mine, because I still get a mail when it is updated - but today I strumbled across your story and I have seen you on the Betaforums so I knew you were a person with a lot of opnions so I thought I want to give your story a try. Especially because I thought the story it self sounded excting.
So now back to the review: I thought this is great story so far. I love the story idea it is very unique and orginal. Your choice for the title is also good because it makes you as a reader - be courious.
I loved this chapter I felt sorry for Draco. Your charactizon (Damm my spelling) of Draco is wonerful - very in in - character. I liked the girl with a balloon. Oh about the tricket thing I have never tried to get a tricket thing myself so I could complety see myself in Draco's place. ;)
What I love about your story is your style of writing. You are very good at describering things, you makes one feel, you are there etc.
So I am looking forward to the next chapter,
And thanks for giving my interst in HP fanfiction back.
Author's Response: Wow! What high praise! I hope I can continue to keep your interest.
Summary: Isla was born into a well-known and respected family: the Blacks. She grew up with their traditions and was proud to be who she was – until she met someone who showed her that what she knew was not the only world.
Follow a young witch through her teenage years and discover how a traditional one will change and rebel against what she believed was the only truth.
Finally I got time and a chance to read a story of yours! And this is one I have wanted to read for a long time.
You are great at writing I must say. It is a great chapter and I already want more, when I am finished with this chapter I am off to the next. You are great at describing things and you really make me feel as I am there.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words, Tatty. :) *hugs*
Another great chapter :D I really like this story and I really liked the Sorting Hat part, I always think it is interstering to hear what the hat says . (I always wonder what the hat would have said to me.. okay now I am rambling)
Off to read the next chapter.
Author's Response: lol Thanks again. Enjoy the rest.
Summary: Dieter Heydrich is a model German boy. He has perfect Aryan complexion, is an exemplary member of the Hitler Youth, and is fanatically loyal to his beloved Führer.
But on his eleventh birthday, Dieter discovers a hidden magical world led by an extraordinary wizard named Gellert Grindelwald…
Nominated for QSQ 2009, Best History/Mystery.
WINNER of QSQ 2009, Best Male Original Character.
Note: As you might have guessed, Für Das Größere Wohl is German, meaning: “For the Greater Good.” Yes, this story is from the perspective of the bad guys.
What an interstering story and I have now added it to my favorites. I am looking forward to see the next chapter and I hope that you will finish this one.
More I can say that one thing I like especially is, that apart from this great plot and idea, is that you are VERY good at dreibering things instead of just dialogs, as I have read many fanfic in that way.
Agian - you have done a great job so far.
Salutations, Tatjana Black!
Thank you for reviewing my story! I actually wrote this story simply because I wondered how Nazi Germany and Grindelwalds Germany influenced each other, and what that magical dictatorship would have been like. Creating a story and characters to go with it was a bit of an afterthought!
Also, Im glad that you like my writing style. Dialogue is useful, but nobody wants to read a story where two characters just talk to each other! I think that you can explore a character in depth with body language, thoughts, and actions, in addition to just plain old speech.

Summary: Andromeda spends her first Christmas with Teddy, which is also her first Christmas without her husband and daughter.
This is a Winter Snows entry by Sly Severus of Slytherin for a Reflecting Christmas.
Oh you just made my day. Det var en vidunderlig historie
Author's Response: Glad you liked it.
Stupid review box deleted half of my enry but the sentence I wrote means it was a wonderful story
Author's Response: Lol. Thank you.
Author's Response: Lol. Thank you.
Summary: Harry has seen many Christmases; some of them were cruel and cold, others were what a Christmas should be – a holiday of love, celebrated with family and friends.
Will this year be as bright as the best Christmases Harry has experienced? Or will the memories of decades back close in on him?
I thought I would give you an review before I go to sleep. As you already know I think this a great Christmas story, and you made me smile and I really felt I was there. Also I liked the flashback about one of Harrys' Christmas. It was good. You are great at writing.
I wish you a very Christmas.
Author's Response: Thank you so much, Tatty! *squishes* Merry Christmas to you, too. :)
Summary: Christmas at the Black's is never fun. In an attempt to make the holiday season a little more special for Narcissa, Bella meets someone who will change her life forever.
It kind of shocked me a bit that it was the Dark Lord in the end, but in a good way. I think it is only fic where I have seen him before he got to be really evil and no human. Interstering. I really really like this fic. You did great job and as always I love your Bella.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it. It gave me something to do on Christmas Eve. :D
At age fifteen, Regulus Black became sole heir to the largest fortune in Wizarding London. At sixteen, his abnormal intelligence won him entry into the most notorious cult of Dark wizards on earth. At seventeen he made a mistake – one that he would never be able to take back – and his entire world came crashing down.
Enter London, 1979. The story of a boy who managed to defy Voldemort at the height of his regime. But what price did he have to pay?
Normally I am very careful about what I read and I don't very often read Proffesor rated stories, but I decided to give this one a try becuase I simply loved your other story - the travel one. Also because I have a thing for the Blacks.
I really enjoyed this one so far. You did a great job with all the Blacks. But what I like most about this story and about the others you have written it is the way you write. You write in a way, so you simply just are there. You have good dialoges, are good are describing things.
Do you write non - fanfiction? Because I think you would be really good at that. I think you could be an auother.
I am looking forward to read more.
Author's Response: Thank you - I am flattered that you decided to overlook the Professor rating and give this story a chance. Most of it is minimally explicit (a few swear words here or there) except for chapter four, which is the reason I had to rate it Professors.
Thank you again, for the compliment about the way I write. More that with any other story, I paid special attention to wording and style in this one, so I am glad you noticed it. As for non-fiction, I have tried to write it, but I am not very good at it yet, and it doesn't come easily. I will keep trying until I get something good, though. :) Thank you, this review was very inspiring. Enjoy the future chapters!
Summary: Somewhere there's a happy medium between innocence and evil. Minerva, though, doesn't know where that might be.
Do you know how much I love this one? I really like it. so belieave and characters IC. Really loved it agian, you have nice writing style.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm SO glad that you liked it.
Hi Biinee :-) Godmorning.
Well I really liked it - and I have not even read your other story. But I am off to read it now that is for sure.:)
Anyway I thought it was great. I really like your writing style.
Author's Response: Thanks, Tatty. :)
Summary: In his school years, Remus Lupin became known as a "bookworm": Where he went, he usually went with something to read. But those weren't textbooks, as many of his fellow students originally thought – they were books of great adventures, of other worlds, that drew him in and let him forget about his worries.
But how did this boy grow to love, even to need books so much? When Remus Lupin was a child, there was little he could do; his overprotective father never let him go outside on his own, and least of all was he allowed to play with other children. But he had other friends – he had his books, to take him far away, to different places.
Until one day, a stranger arrives at the Lupins' doorstep, and he might not need his books to find a different world anymore after all.
What can I say? Das ist sehr gut. :D You are such good at writing.. and I am not lying, but I could not help to have a tear or two in my eyes after :
Dad?” Remus asked, suddenly insecure. “Will I really have to stay there all alone?”
and so I teared up by his father's answer.
Anyway I enjoyed so much reading this chapter and I am looking forward to the next one.
As I said before I really wanted to read your stories. I think this is the one I have read before, but I have never posted a review but now when I finally figured out my password
then I decided to tell you my opnion.
I really enjoyed your story. I read it so quick because it has such a nice flow. I also really liked the way you protayed Remus.
The beginning was very good.
Hello,” the old man said, and looked at him kindly. “You’re Remus, I’d guess?” And, looking at the book the boy was holding tightly to his chest, he added, “Dickens? You don’t meet many wizards who enjoy Muggle literature, especially not at such a young age.”
^ I really liked so that you put the name 'Dickens' in the paragraph. :-) By the way this paragraph also made me smile, because I so clear could picture Remus and that is a good thing I guess, because when you can see the things, you read, then the writing is good.
I also think that you protayed Dumbledore very well and Remus' father. I enjoyed reading the dialouge between them especially this part.
And the ending is very good as well ^^
Summary: Carrie McKinnon, soon-to-be seventh year Hufflepuff, is not going to let the war get her down. However, it is going to affect her in one way or another – and maybe that's a good thing.
This is for Carole/EquinoxChick, and much less than she deserves. You are an incredible, magnificent person, and I still completely fangirl you. If I ever get close to what you are/have now, just talent-wise and with all the ideas you always have, I'd be happy. I really admire you and what you do a lot, so don't ever change.
Muchas muchas Gracias to Nat/hestiajones for helping me out, event though she should have been in bed.
Finally I got around to read it. I thought it was such a great read. What I espcially liked was how neautral it was the dialouges ^^
