It is now 2014. Oh my word. Well, I haven't updated any of my tics in a while. I'm looking into uploading them on a different site due to the fact I don't have time to go through the vigorous submission process here.

Summary: THE LAST CHAPTER IS IN! Read, review and enjoy!
The first battle of the second War- Dementors illegally issuing the Kiss on Death Eaters- A murder in the Weasley family- Voldemort's plans- Dumbledore's and Harry's struggle.
In the midst of this chaos and hardship, Hermione is left feeling slightly disheartened. When Harry and Ron are temporarily unavailable to befriend her, an ironic and seemingly platonic relationship is born. Will it ease the pain of the War's influence, or will it only create further turmoil for a girl that needs anything but?
And in the end, a terrible decision is left to be made; one that no natural person would envy.
I loved this story I even liked how it ended. It leaves room for wondering. Once again great job! I can't wait to see the sequal.
Summary: Some things never change. Friendships, romance, classes... for the most part, those things stay the same. But not in this case. What would you do if you suddenly developed feelings for someone you'd hated forever, but after awhile you realized you never actually hated them in the first place? You wouldn't really think this was such a big deal, now, would you? But if you take into consideration who you are and who they are, you will realize that no one will accept your relationship. Not even your closest friends who have been by your side for years and years helping you through thick and thin...
I loved this story! It was really good!
Summary: Draco/OC fanfic..rated PG for a little language play.. Starts with a too familiar scene in Chapter 18, GoF. Written in three POV's: Hannah's, Draco's and a general POV. Please R&R.
=He finally stopped, barely inches from me. The torch light illuminated his face, and as I racked my brain on what to do, I started noticing a few things that I hadn't seen before..like the way his magnificent gray eyes shone in the little light from the torch above me..how smooth his cheeks seemed to be..how distinct his facial features were..how his thin lips were inches from mine....
Very sweet! I loved this story and Hannah and Draco are a very intresting pairing.

I didn't review yet and now that I have finished your lovely story I feel that I must! First off I had no idea what I was looking for when I saw this story. It just caught my eye and over the past few days I just couldn't stop reading! I love how you wrote Oliver and Laura. Especially in chapter 11. You wrote their awkwardness so well it seemed like if you did see them in real life that is how they would have been.
When Oliver and Bernard were walking down the street I got so upset thinking to myself “He was supposed to marry Laura!” But in the end you did a great job. It makes me sad having to leave Oliver and Laura. I can’t wait to see what else you have written and/or plan to write!
Author's Response: I\'m glad you decided to give Oliver and Laura a chance. :-) Chapter 11 was one of the most difficult chapters for me to write because it was one of the stages in the story I just kind of skipped over while plotting it in my head. It\'s one of my favorite chapters now.\r\n\r\nI\'m also quite happy to hear you fell for the Bernard bait. ;-) He was definitely one of the most fun characters to write. Adam, Mark, and Rose ranked up there with him.\r\n\r\nThanks very much for reviewing!
Summary: After the Voldemort's defeat in the second war, former Death eaters are still at large.

Hi! I loved this story and read it in one day. It was very amazing and I can't wait to see how the Your Eyes potion works and Hermione's reaction to it!
Author's Response: In the hopes that everyone who reviews sees this, I am deeply sorry that I have not posted the sequel to this story. I have had to deal with some personal issues and regretfully had to stop writing. I hope to start again soon. Thank you so much for reading my stories.\r\n
Summary: It's the summer after sixth year and Hermione is staying at The Burrow. Her dreams have finally come true: she is Ron Weasley's girlfriend. However, to her shock and dismay she discovers that the attainable has become the unwanted.

Amidst all this confusion, Draco Malfoy arrives in a coma from which it is doubtful he will ever leave. Hermione is asked to watch over him in case of a miraculous recovery. However, she finds herself pouring out her hopes, fears and dreams to her unconscious nemesis, someone who can't even hear her... or can he?

Thank you for updating!!! I have waited so long, but this chapter was worth it! I can't wait to see how the rest of the story plays out!
Author's Response: Thank you! Sorry for the immensely long wait...school you see...need I say more? lol! I can\'t exactly say when the next chapter will be up, but hopefully it won\'t take as long as before *winks*
I loved this chapter! And ice-skating is going to be awesome...I can't wait to find out if Draco can skate or not. Keep up the great work. I love this story and can't wait to see how it ends!
Author's Response: Ooo I'm glad you like the ice-skating idea! To be honest, I haven't started writing out the next chapter, but I'm so excited to write out that scene! Happy to know you're enjoying the story! Thanks a ton for leaving a review =D
Summary: Susan Whitmer is your average witch. She loves magic, loves school, and loves to learn. But, this year, she learns the meaning of love, learning it through experiences, and people, that she may never forget.
I can't wait to see what happens with this story. I can imagine Roger being that way and I love the "Your lovely hair clip, that I must simply borrow sometime? Made in part by Quidditch! "
Author's Response: Heh, yeah. He has just got to go. :P
Summary: Historic AU, set a few years before the American civil war
Charles Weasley is a man with many talents and one that could easily find a wife far more beautiful than Miss Granger. Yet she is the one he wants, the only question is – does she want him?
That was wonderful ! You did a really good job with it.
Author's Response: Thanks :D
Summary: Some people say that you can find anything imaginable in Knockturn Alley. In the dark recesses of one shop, a piece of jewelry, which has haunted history for eons, lies hidden. It is a beautiful piece; striking and elegant in every way. Truly, it is a gift any woman would die for.
Winner of the 'Borgin and Burkes' one-shot challenge.
I really enjoyed this fic. It seemed to flow very easily. One of my favorite lines was:
The moment Quentin’s fingers picked the ring from its box, he felt a chill race directly up his spine. It was bone-tingling and unnerving as a feeling of dread and disquiet settled like a dense cloud in his mind.
You wrote that so well and your description of Quentin’s feeling was very well done. The end has quite a twist to it.
Author's Response: Thanks very much! I\'m glad you enjoyed it! x
Summary: The War's over, the Dark Lord is vanquished, and the trio returns to Hogwarts to complete their last year of studies. But someone turns up a few days before the Feast and everyone is stunned to see him; most of all Hermione, who finds herself drifting towards this improved person - something that had never taken place in the last six years of their acquaintance.
So, who's this 'new' guy and why is he making Hermione...fall for him?!
This story has slightly been altered keeping in mind the happenings of The Deathly Hallows. Hopefully this would be better to digest.Chapter 3 is in queue (again) btw :)
Hi! I can't wait to see how this story turns out!
Summary: Harry has been gone for three years on his mission, he returns with a plan to win Ginny back. Will it work?
This story has been slightly edited! Please read!
I love it. I usually stay away from Harry/Ginny but I'm really glad I read this! I listened to Far Away while reading and it made the story seem so real. Keep up the great work!
Author's Response: Thank you!
Summary: Meet Aldred, the Keeper of the Hall of Prophecy. As he is puzzling out a cryptic prophecy regarding the downfall of Lord Voldemort, an old friend comes to visit, hoping to better understand the mysteries of the enigmatic message Fate has left them. A year and a half later, it would appear that the prophecy has been fulfilled. But Aldred’s visitor returns with grim news, and they discuss the twists of fate that swirl around a young boy named Harry Potter, now destined to vanquish the Dark Lord in an uncertain future.
This is a one-shot story written for the Harry’s Hospital Wing Project by Gmariam of Ravenclaw.
I really loved this story. I loved the character you created, Aldred. I think you did an excellent job in fleshing him out and making us care about him and his job. I had never really given much thought to the prophesies but now I have a clear picture in my mind on how they end up in the department of mysteries. I had always thought that they just appeared there! This is a truly a beautiful hidden gem in the world of fanfiction!
I also wanted to let you know that this story is the Ravenclaw Story of the Week pick! I hope you get tons of love and reviews!
Author's Response: First of all, a very belated thank-you for picking this story as the story of the week! How wonderfully random! :) And a second thank-you for taking the time to read it and leave such a nice review. Aldred is one of my only true OCs, and I quite like him. He's popped up in several other stories now (at least three, maybe more...) because he just strikes me as someone who would be involved that way. In fact, in a more recent story he created something new to replace the Hall of Prophecy that was destroyed by Harry in OotP. :) So I'm glad you liked him and his position as Keeper of the Hall. Thank you again for the lovely review!! ~Gina :)
Summary: Hi, I’m Lily Evans. You know, there are a lot of fics about me out there. I’m flattered that you spend time thinking about me, but sometimes sickened. How could these fics not mention my
bonkers beautiful cat, Missy? And what about my evil and malicious extremely helpful conscience? Or the fact that I make a fool out of myself at every opportunity am unique?
Well, this fic has all of these things. It also has L.O.V.E (I’m the ‘L’), the elite group of
cliquey lovely girls that I am part of. And our rival, the sarcastic cynic also unique Iola Potter (cousin and partner in crime to James). But does it have an actual plot? Of course not Absolutely! And it starts with me getting a detention with Iola (through no fault of my own, of course). And we kind of ... almost ... well, we get on alright. A friendship sparks, shall we say. I have no idea how it happens It is meant to be. But it’s going to take some fighting for if we want to keep it. It would be a lot easier to just stick to what we know, really. We were perfectly happy hating each other. But ... well. I guess you’ll have to find out!
Read this or I’ll curse you Read this and I’ll love you!
I LOVED all of it! I haven't laughed out loud so much since the last mugglecast I listened too! My favorite...ok one of my favorite lines was when Sirius said “Well, give me a wimple, and call me a nun, because the hills are alive with the sound o’ music, baby!” My favorite character Lily! My favorite chapter oh they were all wonderful!
Author's Response: =D Thanks! I\'m glad you enjoyed it! Yeah, I liked that quote too ... as I said, I basically ripped it off \"Cut me in half and call me a munchkin, because ding dong the witch is dead!\" But I\'m not sure who originally said that, so I couldn\'t actually credit it to them. Anyway, thanks for reviewing!
Author's Response: *GASP* Could this possibly be ... REVIEW NUMBER 400?? OH MY COD! I NEVER KNEW I WAS THAT POPULAR! You get 400 Padfoot Points, and some cyber cookies! In fact ... CYBER COOKIES ALL ROUND!
The ending of this chapter was so funny! I can't wait to read the rest of the story.
Author's Response: Thanks, hope you enjoy it!
Summary: "Some mistakes are too much fun to make just once."
After Lily Evans, Head Girl of Hogwarts, starts a food-fight with James Potter, Head Boy of Hogwarts, they are both given detention for the rest of the year, and are assigned a 'detention journal', which the staff say will help to settle their 'overwhelming and disturbing differences'. We have come across Lily's journal; her take on why the whole affair ever started, her intriguing relationship with one ‘supreme git of the galaxy’, the extents to which she will go for revenge and where it will lead her...
"And if for some unknown reason you come across this, Potter, and the paragraph above does not manage to penetrate your unusually thick head and convince you of my stupendous dislike of you, I hope the following sentence helps: I HATE YOU!"
I love it !! Wow it's so good!
Author's Response: Thanks. Very much.
Summary: James and Lily spend their summers together producing plays, though neither are happy about the presence of the other. With James, as the set designer, and Lily, as the actress, tensions run high.
I love the story and this chapter was really good. I can't wait to read more.
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m so glad you enjoyed the chapter! I hope the update is soon enough! Thank you for the review! Yours truly, Amelia Bedelia
