I'm a happily married, 38 year old, shameless H/G shipper. I've read other ships from time to time, but not many writers can make it work, IMO. There are a few, but the only one that comes to mind at the moment is Jeconais. Like I said, just my own opinion, and he's the only one I can think of off-hand who has a tendency to pair Harry with female characters other than Ginny, just because somebody said he couldn't do it. I also currently post at FFnet, and SIYE. At SIYE, I'm known as AKA_Hagrid, for those keeping track ;-)

AU - **Warning Spoilers for OoTP in A/N** Harry's sixth year proves to be anything but boring when he recieves a surprising letter on his birthday. Secrets revealed, family lost and found again, and of course H/G fluff.

I like the way Snape starts ti finally realize a few things about Harry and the way he was raised. The way Dumbledore warned Vernon worked very well, too.

Brilliant stuff as always, darlin. Hermione is normally one of my favorite characters, but by the end of this one, I wanted to find some duck tape and tape her to the wall of the back room of WWW, for product testing. Beautiful writing, and great characterization. And you wonder why I say I like your stuff better than my own at times? Bill


Chapter 2: Never Broken
Follows my story, Harry Potter and the Power of the Garuda although you don't have to have read it, to enjoy this one. Harry deals with his daughters and wife as they go through 'that' time of the month!

Brilliant stuff, Sarah! Funny, yet authentic enough to scare the bejesus outta me. Very glad right now that Lori and I don't have any daughters, and that we don't live with her sister and mom. I love 'em both dearly, but... *shudder* Very good story.

Author's Response: I don't have any daughters, yet... but yeah, it's a thought that can leave one cold :-) But oh so funny!!!! I am glad you enjoyed it, because I had a lot of fun with it.



Chapter 1: Swimming With The Fishes
Human Physics by Mangykneazle [Mid Teens]
starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 3]
Series: A set of three unrelated short stories originally produced for SIYE's Summer 2005 challenge where they failed miserably.

Story: When Hermione devises a clever scheme to get her and Ron together, Harry foolishly agrees to help her. Disaster and misunderstandings inevitably ensue.

‘If I help you in this, you had best help me with Ginny,’ Harry had muttered when Hermione had informed him of her devious decision. ‘And with recovering any appendages I might lose from this idiotic experiment.’ I love this stuff. Definitely a fun read, to say the least. Now, off to happily check out the next chapter.

Uncle Vernon made a peculiar noise that sounded an awful like ‘Wibble.’ Great stuff. very funny. I like the semi-fluffy moments near the end, too.

‘Er…’ ‘If that’s what passes for chat-up lines these days, I’ve been going about things all wrong,’ Charlie muttered to his brother. Haven't laughed that hard in a while. Just the image of the look on Harry's face as he tries to get out of whatever mess he's gotten into this time, and trying to figure out what the mess is.


Chapter 3: Part 3 - Theory of Relativity
Ginny Weasley is awakened in the middle of the night by a ringing Muggle telephone. The caller, a Healer from St. Mungo's, has the information she's anticipated for 5 long, lonely years.

Will the decisions she's made over these 5 years haunt her? Can she move on?

This just goes to prove that some stories really do seem to exist solely for the purpose of sucking a reader in. Very nicely written. I really have to wonder who Ginny danced with, and what kind of coin she'll have to pay with.

During the summer after the 5th year, one evening at the Burrow, Harry overhears a conversation between a mother and daughter, which awakens him to his real status in the Weasley family, particularly in the eyes and heart of a beautiful red head.

Very good start. I love the picture you draw of Molly and Ginny, as well as his realization that he, of all people, should have recognized how Ginny had been excluded.

I really like Ginny's reaction to the way he asked her to come with him. From immovable object to a hairsbreadth from apparating in a split second. Pretty much the way I'd picture her reacting. I look forward to more of this one.
