Dear Conscience by Pussycat123
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 37]

Summary: Mini-fic with 3 parts.

Dear Reader,

I am a troubled girl. Everything that could go wrong, seems to go wrong. Throw in the biggest pain in the derriere a girl has ever had to put up with, a best and worst friend that you both love and hate, and a sister you just purely hate, and what do you get? My life. So that’s why I need an outlet – someone to yell at, someone to blame, and someone to draw some kind of twisted comfort from. Who better than my conscience? And how do I keep in contact with said conscience? Through writing letters to it of course! Need some convincing?

Well, I hurl a lot of verbal abuse about, make mistakes that could cost me everything I hold dear, and occasionally I get things – sort of – right. And where else could you read about lipsticks, rhubarb crumble and foam fights all in one mini-fic?

Well, I think I’ve convinced you enough. Don’t tell me you’re not tempted! Read my personal letters addressed to my conscience, and be amazed and enthralled at how utterly unstable my life is ...

Ah, Christmas. The season of joy and love. And Head Boy James Potter fully intends to use the loving atmosphere to his advantage by coming up with plans and using them to capture the heart of Lily Evans.

But since when do plans transfer beautifully from parchment to life?

Six plans become five, five become four, four become three, three become two, two become one, and then there are none.

Then his friends come to the rescue.

But of course.

****UPDATE**** 7/31/08 Chapter Five just submitted :) ********

7/30/2011 Years later I'm finally getting ready to update this story. I've re-written this chapter five times so far now. Chapters 5 and 6 sort of blend together, I'm trying to pick a good separation point. Chapter 5 is less Draco. Chapter 6 is ALL Draco. Thanks to anyone who has stuck with this story.

CHAPTER FIVE IS VALIDATED AND UP! :D Reviews are appreciated.

I loved it! Draco was written exceptionally well and Melanie was amazing! I like how you portray Melanie and her brothers relationship. Charles fully admits to the killing of his parents and I think thats essential to their brother/sister relationship. And the end part was very sweet and Draco's promise was gentle.

Author's Response: Aww! Thank you sooo much! I worked reallyyy hard on this one. I don\'t know why, but for some reason I wanted to make Melanie seem like a really nice person who didn\'t have any problems on the surface, but really she\'s got more problems than she can handle. Chapter three is giving me a hard time because of all the content I\'m planning on placing in The rating is going to have to go up after this chapter. Thanks for the review! :) **Emma

Bare by Northumbrian

All I ever wanted to do was fit in and be normal. I wanted friends, a nice boy, marriage and kids, the usual stuff. It wasn’t much to hope for.

Fighting a war can leave scars, and you can't always hide them.

I really liked this story. It was interesting to read a story about a character that didn’t have a real happy ending at the end of the series. I enjoyed learning more about Lavender and her struggle to hold herself together after the accident. I especially liked the part about the werewolf attack I was not expecting it.

Author's Response: Thanks, as I pointed out, this story is a guess the narrator (and guess whats wrong with her) fic. I accept that reviews will often be spoilers. And Id like to apologise to the reviewer whos deleted a review. There was no need. Ill just have to accept the spoilers. N



Albus Potter had what some would call a fascinating job -- working for the Magical Law Enforcement's intelligence department. But when suspicious activity caused the Ministry to think the infamous Knights of Walpurgis were up to something, their leading expert was called into action.

In disguise and out of his mind, Albus embarked on an impossible task, but when things started turning for the worse, why were his only thoughts about the one person he would hurt along the way?
