Let's see. I'm a 25-year old workaholic who spends her days running a retail store and dealing with interesting customers. I enjoy reading, writing, sleeping and spending time with my friends and family.


My guilty pleasures consist of RPG, fanfiction and romance novels (the non-trashy kind of course!). Oh and Diet Dr. Pepper. I really love a good Diet Dr. Pepper.

[Sequel to 'The Amulet of Stone'] A new darkness has been unleashed on the world and Harry and his friends don't know how to stop it or even what it truly is. They're only clues come from the thing itself and the strange string of circumstances that led to its escape.

As I'm sure you already know, I love this chapter.  I noticed that I hadn't yet reviewed for it.  Great job!

This chapter was so powerful on a number of levels, Kev.  I loved the conversation between Harry and Josef.  It seemed to fit in well with the situation, especially as Josef seems to be losing control of his powers.  I also like how Ginny's safety is becoming more and more questionable.  Great job!


Chapter 4: Friendly Confrontations

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!!!

*laughs*  The last line is priceless.  I love it.  This chapter was packed full of emotion and I really enjoyed it.  Great job!

Author's Response: I do love that last line too...  I want to thank you for the continued kind reviews!  I think you're my only reader right now, so perhaps your words will bring in others.  Thanks SO much!  Cheers!  *Sunny*

Another great chapter.  Quite a surprise, I'd say, but I'm not too shocked by the revelation.  It all seems to fit in and you hinted at it.  Great job!

Author's Response: Oh, thank you!  Sounds like you had been paying attention, since you weren't too surprised, hehe.



Chapter 20: Chapter Twenty - Done With Hiding

Another wonderful chapter.  I enjoyed the tension between Harry and Ginny.  It's got to be hard for her to sit back and watch Harry look at someone the way he had been looking at her merely months before.  The conversation between Harry and  Ron was great too.  I think it needed to come.  I've always pictured him as a protective older brother.  Great job!

Author's Response: Yes, that tension is so fantastic to write, I must admit!  Perhaps I watch too many soap operas, but I just love it.  And I'm glad I was true to Ron's character in the process!  Ginny's character is far harder to pin down, seeing as we know so little of her in canon.

So Luci continues to be a mystery.  Poor Mrs. Weasley.  First Percy only stays for an hour and then she has to hear Harry say that he's doing this to the death, if it comes to that.  Now we know who gave Harry the watch; although I was pretty certain that it was from her.  I'm guessing that Malfoy's cloak came from her as well.  I wonder if she's having trouble deciding between Harry and Malfoy, the pair being so different.  Another great chapter!  I can't wait to see what happens next.

Author's Response: Yes, the cloak is from Luci, as well, but not for the reason you think...  hehe.

Yet another wonderful chapter.  So Percy showed up?  I would have been a bit more worried about him finding the location than the rest of them were.  I wonder if he's up to something.  Poor Ron always seems to be getting injured, what with his scars from OotP and now these, he's going to start looking like Mad-Eye Moody eventually.  *grins*  And the punch!  That was just wonderful.  Harry hit Malfoy in the face and it just made my day.  Great job!

Author's Response:

The truth about Percy showing up won't be revealed in this story, actually, but in the partner story that I'm writing to coincide with this one.  And everyone loves that punch, haha!  Harry/Draco scenes are the best to write!

So, another rivalry.  It's good to see that Ginny has some competition again.  Although I love Harry and Ginny together, Harry is still a teenage boy and could still become distracted easily.  I really enjoyed the idea of the Quidditch Pitch.  I'm sure that when Draco comes in, drama will unfold.  As for Luci, another injury (this time a bit more major) and she still walked away pretty much unharmed.  I'm becoming more and more intrigued by that.  Wonderful job!

Author's Response: Yes, considering Harry's love of Quidditch, I think we need at least a little bit of it!  The poor kid needs something enjoyable in his life!  Anywho, yes, all will be revealed...



Chapter 16: Chapter Sixteen - Possession

Another great chapter.  I really enjoy the way that you pull things together.  Time passes smoothly and thus making it seem less jumbled when you jump to another scene.  So Luci's elbow is now healed.  Makes me wonder if it healed on it's own, which I'm assuming.  And they've found another Horcrux finally.  The scene was wonderfully written.  It was so simple to find and yet they all seemed to have fallen to pieces in their own right.  Oh, and I wonder what Luci did for Hermione.  Great job!

 

PS: I loved the idea of the Smith Sanctum.  :)  All of those riches underground.   



Author's Response: Oh, hurray!  Few have expressed a liking for the Sanctum, but it took ages to come up with it!  And Luci's secrets are all only a few chapters away...
