A long-time addict of X-Files fanfiction, I got hooked on Harry Potter stories by reading the books to my kids. I'm not old, but I'm definately not young. I devour books, movies and select television programs and obsess on the might-have-beens leaking from my favorite's plots. You could say that I have a surplus of imagination looking for an outlet.

This is very good! I'm really enjoying everyone's role. I wish I had a lightning bolt switch!

Author's Response: Me too! Their roles are a lot of fun to write.

I like Ginny with a sword! Too cute. On to the next chapter :)

Author's Response: That sword... well it will come in to play later.

'So you want to be a tyrant'! That really cracked me up. Flashes of Kevin Cosner's movie Robin Hood keep flashing through my head while I read. Especially Rickman as the Sherrif's exclaimation of 'I'll cut your heart out. . . with a spoon!'. too much fun!

Author's Response: LOL Yeah, it's fun since they did play the same role. I didn't know that until I'd already written a few chapters though.

I like Luna's part, but I remember Will Scarlet as being a hothead. I keep wondering if she'll change. Good story. I'll be looking for your updates.

Author's Response: He was a hothead but I'm not sure if Luna would ever be... but she is the best which makes her a lot of fun. I'll be updating soon.



Chapter 6: Chapter 5: Swimming With The Fishies
Instead of peace and harmony, Voldemort's fall has created a world of uncertainty and chaos. The Death Eaters are dwindling, waging a hopeless battle without the Dark Lord to lead them. The Order is scattered and unalert. From the shadows, a new group of wizards is emerging. Without any apparent purpose, they are fighting a silent war, unknown to the public. When Ginny learns of their existence, she finds herself involuntarily pulled into their hidden world.

That's a very good beginning. I'm intrigued. Even after reading the ceiling scene twice to see is the black cloaked wizard was responsible for Charlie's death, I'm still not certain. One to chapter 2 :)

I'm a little confused between the actual job and Auror training. I throughly enjoyed the confrontation between Mrs. Reading and Mr. Harrington. On to Chapter 3.

I'm confused as to why Hermione keeps leaving Ginny alone in her flat. Is it because Harry is there and she wants him to come clean with Ginny? I find myself backtracking a lot to figure out your leaps in plot. Overall I'm enjoying your story.
