Hmmm....there's really nothing glamerous about my life. I live in the Midwest. I have a bullimic cat. I live near a patch of woods some hillbilly farmer confused for a garbage dump. I'm afraid of the random creeps lurking in Myspace, so naturally I don't have one. I'm writing about myself so I'm feeling rather narcisstic.

I how you illustrated Draco's inner conflict without loosing a sense of urgency. Also, the metaphors about his soul were really poetic.


Chapter 1: Life Over Death

Takes place immediately (IMMEDIATELY) after Book 5. What happens if Mad Eye's warning at King's Cross Station has just the exact opposite effect than intended? When things take an immediate turn for the worse, will Harry be able to survive?

UPDATE: Many surprises are revealed, and an emotional day is had by all.

I love the line "and so he slumbered, a prisoner in his house, but even more so in his mind." Plus, the imagry and details you used really enhanced this story, making me feel more than a little afraid of Vernon's wrath. Keep up the good work!

Not meaning to sound like a stickler, but I think Vernon's using the word "mutt"  a little too much. Also I think Harry would definagely fight back.

COMPLETE! Against his will, Harry's mind is erased to protect him... from himself. AU.

Wow! That was really engaging! I loved the figurative language. I don't know if you remember me, but you betad (what a wired looking verb) a couple of my chapters! The story was called the Last Auror, if I remember rightly. Now it's called Aftermath. Trust me, it's not as goth/emo chick with an identity crisis as its predecessor.

Author's Response: Rachel!  Of course I remember you.  I was sorry to see that you decided not to complete your story, although to be fair, I have a few stories up on the internet myself that haven't been finished either.... *innocent whistling*

Is there any reason in particular why Harry has his father's first name and his mother's surname?

Author's Response: Well, I couldn't really name Harry "Lily Potter", since that would have been kind of silly.  And naming him "James Potter" would have, I think, been too close of a memory jogger.  But Dumbledore had a soft spot for Harry and his parents, and so he honored the memory of James and Lily by re-naming Harry as James Evans.



Chapter 2: Chapter 2
NOW COMPLETE!  It is summer, just before the adventures of DH will begin. Hermione and the ghost of Sirius Black form a most unlikely partnership to save the soul of their recently deceased Headmaster from a true fate worse than death.  (No DH Spoilers, but lots of speculations about the Beyond.)

Lot of suggestive lines in there......maybe you should take them out. I must admit, that's a rather unique plot you have going there.

Author's Response: Hmmm...suggestive...do you mean as in smut?  If so, I must say, I'm unaware of them--in this story at least.  Mwa-ha-ha-ha!

OneShot. Harry, Ron, Hermione, and yes, even a curious Draco, go to investigate some rather mysterious noises.

I must say, your writing and usage of words is quite sophisticated. However, I think you could use more active verbs and a bit of polishing up regarding grammar. Also, your adjective use was a bit excessive, particularly in the begining paragraph.  Sometimes some bits of description weren't necessary, for example, the last section of this sentence.

“That is barbaric,” Hermoine protested, averting her eyes from the offending scene being preformed before her.

 Honestly, there's a lot of potential here. I loved how you tied back the ending! That part was clever!
