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.

The International Confederation of Wizards has reinstated the Marriage Law. Hermione and Ron broke up a month beforehand, but could they still harbor feelings for each other, even when Hermione must marry Bill and Ron must marry Luna? Can they fall in love with their intended spouses? In response to the famous Ashwinder challenge, though tweaked a bit.

I'm quite intrigued by your story and can't wait to see where it is going next.  Great job!

Author's Response: Thank you very much! The second chapter should be up soon. Unfortunately I must leave right now (just came to respond), but thank you very much for your review!

Another amazing fic!  I'm quite intrigued by your story and can't wait to see where this will go next.  Poor James seems to be under so much stress.  Great job!

Author's Response: Thanks! It's actually quite crazy, the plot I have in mind, but then on second thought it might seem more realistic than the usual overly-romantic James/Lily stories during the time of the war. ;)

Absolutely wonderful fic.  It was so sad at the end!  I love how you capture Remus's emotions during HPDH and the final scene was written beautifully.  Great job!

Author's Response: oh thank you so much for both submitting my story and reviewing!! This is the first fic I've written that's so sad, it actually made my friend cry when I sent it to her!

An interesting start to your fic. I like how you began at the closure of the final chapter. It's great to see what might have happened after Harry, Ron and Hermione left the Headmaster's office. I just have two notes: I'm somewhat shocked that the Order would not know that Snape was their man after Harry announced it during the battle. Also, I was wondering where Lucius and Narcissa went, as they were both seated next to Draco in HPDH. Great job and I look forward to another update!

Author's Response:

Thanks. I was frustrated at the lack of a reunion with Ginny at the end of the book, so when I realized that I could write it and have it work with this plot, I jumped at the opportunity.

As far as Lucius and Narcissa - despite their change of heart, they've still committed crimes and are known Death Eaters. Given the fight Shacklebolt gave to arrest Draco, who hasn't committed any confirmed crimes, I think it's fairly safe to say that he wouldn't let those two go easily at all.

And as to your question about Snape, that's a mess-up on my part. Still, they always say that seeing is believing, and the only one who's seen the memories so far is Harry.




Chapter 1: Chapter 1
A post-DH one-shot attempting to fill in some missing scenes in the last chapter of the book. Ginny is tired of being treated like a child, but worst of all, like a liability to Harry and company, and is determined that they cease and desist said treatment, whatever she has to do to make them stop it.

I think this was wonderful.  I love that you took a portion of Deathly Hallows and gave us a different perspective.  It was very sad and I agree that Lily would be the one to help him on his way.  Great job!

Author's Response: Thank you! I thought that Snape deserved some happiness, he's had a rought life. Thank you so much for reviewing my story, I feel so very special.



Chapter 1: Chapter 1
What happens from the time Harry and company leave the Headmaster's office to when Ginny sees him again. Starts where Chapter 36 of DH leaves off. (Third of a planned series--the others are 'Absolution' and 'Wind Beneath My Wings'. Not in order, though; I'm writing them as the inspiration hits me.)

I absolutely loved this.  It seemed to fit well following Chapter 36.  I can't wait to read the other parts of the trilogy.  I also just wanted to let you know that I loved the ending of this.  It was so sweet.  Great job!

I was pulled instantly into your AU.  The idea of a Muggle running a wizarding school that is in rival with Hogwarts is one that I haven't run across before.  Great job!  I look forward to your next chapter.

Author's Response: Thanks -- btw, I originally had all the numbers written out but it looked wordy so I changed it. Anyway -- sorry for the spam influx of chapter/stories (I wasn't sure if it was max 5 per story or 5 in total). The rest of the chapters are up at FFnet if you're interested in reading ahead. Also, I realise that there are grammatical errors, but as I don't have a beta I was planning on finishing the story first before going back and editing. Otherwise, thanks for the review! I'm glad that it was finally posted on Wizard Tales.
