Holy Horcruxes, Harry! All of your BOOK SEVEN questions answered before July 21st! The killing curse leaves no mark, so why does Harry have one?  Why did it take Hagrid twenty-four hours to get Harry to the Dursleys’?  Our hero's phenomenal adventures continue, and he will not emerge unscathed. Who will survive?  Will Harry find the Horcruxes and defeat Voldemort?  And whose side are Snape and Draco Malfoy really on?  Please review!  COMPLETED 6/27/2007!!!

You really captured the pangs of young-love angst in this chapter.  Naturally, with Voldemort still in his head, Harry's temper is not in check and he doesn't handle emotional turmoil very well.  I'm glad he and Luci got that kiss in, anyway!  Gaia



Author's Response: You know, you described Harry's frame of mind perfectly.  Unable to handle pretty much all of these emotions surging through him.  I'm glad that I was able to portray it!  Thank you, as always, for the review!  *Sunny*

What a powerful, action-packed chapter!  I was so enthralled I forgot the time and just had to finish reading it.  The appearance of the Inferi was a creepy touch and the dialogue between Voldemort and Harry was completely believeable and in charactrer.  GaiaRhiannon

Author's Response: Thank you, my dear!  Been working on it for two days now, haha!  I will soon reply to your e-mail and leave some feedback for your poems!  *Sunny*

This is an excellently-written and intriguing chapter, with a creative change in POV.  The characters and dialogue are "right on" and very believable.  Congratulations on the first chapter and I'll be looking forward to reading Snape's version next!  Well done!  GaiaRhiannon



Author's Response: Thank you!! Glad you're enjoying it so far. :D



Chapter 1: Chapter One: Detention With Pomona (Sirius)
Midnight Grace by manic_panic [Tantric Magic]
starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 2]

Pansy Parkinson has watched and admired Draco for six years at Hogwarts, and despite Malfoy’s continued refusals, she has decided once and for all to make him hers.  Fueled by a fleeting glimpse of her dream (Draco escorting her to the Yule Ball their Fourth Year) and the fact Draco’s mother still talks to her, she has renewed her resolve and her desire shall not be deterred.  But, a new student at Hogwarts catches Draco Malfoy’s eye and he wastes no time in claiming what he desires.  How will she take the news that Draco is courting another?

Lucius Malfoy has been missing since the summer of Draco’s Fifth Year.  After nearly two years of waiting, the boy finally receives word from his father, but dark times lay ahead.  Nothing is what it seems and Draco must reach deep within himself to battle those he knows to be his enemies, but still appear loyal to the Dark Lord for fear of reprisals against him and his family.  Will he pass his greatest test?

In this story of romance, drama, and sometimes very dark tales of torture and sacrifice, we follow Draco through his Seventh Year at Hogwarts.  Here, we will meet his best friend, Thane Purefoy, and learn of his philandering ways and the dark secret he keeps.  We also meet the girl who threatens to bring the great Purefoy to his knees, Iosifina Constantinescu, an American transfer student with dark secrets of her own.  Together, along with Draco’s new love, Laelonatia Volusia, they muddle their way into adulthood, through the final rites of passage as they enter the cruel and dark wizarding world of Slytherin and the Dark Lord.

This is a very well-wwritten chapter and you've certainly done a great job of capturing the nastiness inherent in the personalities of several of these characters. Excellent dialogue.  Well done!  GaiaRhiannon




Chapter 2: The Prefects
Through no fault of his own, Harry becomes a vampire. Which struggle will prove the hardest? The fight to find the Horcruxes against Voldemort and his minions, or the fight to hold onto his own failing humanity? This story picks up after the events of the Half-Blood Prince and makes an immediate detour into the Twilight Zone.

I really enjoyed reading this short piece.  It's well written and professionally presented.  It's always a challenge to tell a good story in few words, and you managed to explore the gentle experiences of new love without becoming overly sentimental.  Good characterization and nice job all around!  GaiaRhiannon

Cutting isn't a subject I'm comfortable reading about, especially if Harry is the one hurting himself.  However, having said that, this short story is very well written and points out what can happen when people who are close to the person don't speak up and intervene. You've captured the essence of a very dark subject in just a few paragraphs.  GaiaR

Author's Response: Thank you for the review and for your honesty! I appreciate it!!!



Chapter 1: Nobody Cared
[Reviews - 5]

Harry, Ron and Hermione met Kate in their third year. At first, she seemed like a normal girl, who was slightly odd. However, there is much more to her than is let on, like why she makes Harry's scar burn whenever she looks at him, and why her last name is "Riddle". The answer is simple. She is Voldemort's granddaughter.

A very good first effort!  Keep writing and be careful not to put yourself down in the author and end notes. Let your readers know what they're going to love about this story and make them want to come back for more!  Rhiannon

I like the way you built up the suspense at the end of the chapter, leaving us wanting to read Kate's story.  Nicely done!  GaiaR
