I've been following your story plus "Ancient Magic" back at SIYE. I've loved them so far, especially Nathan and Anna. This is another great chapter from the fight at Anna's house to the study sessions in the ROR. I can't wait to see what they come up with to break Ginny's bond with Voldemort.

Author's Response: Thank you! They're working on it, believe me!

Another great chapter. Nice development on the storyline for Neville and Joanna. I hope Joanna's parents relent. I'd love to see the bonding ceremony of Neville and Joanna. Hermione's suggestion is great! I do hope it works. Great chapter all around, congratulations. I look forward to the next one.

Author's Response: Thank you! Joanna's parents are nice people - just caught up in the war and wanting to keep her safe. And that bonding ceremony...hmm...it won't happen in this tale, but my beta keeps saying, "You know, you should really think about writing that..." :)

Great story. I love the fluff. I hope JKR writes it like this. Maybe you can consider writing a followup year 7 story.

Author's Response: I've thought about doing a longer story. I've written two long-ish stories in my life and I really love both, but they took a lot out of me (emotionally and temporally speaking). I think the one-shots and 2-5 chapter things are my way of building up to something longer. Of course, there are already so many outstanding epics out there, that's it hard to find creative space. :)

Nice story. I'd like to know the names of the kids. It's interesting that Ginny can drive a car and works as a sports columnist. That's different from other stories, including what I plan for my own. Good job.

Author's Response: Glad you like it! The kids names...I never thought about that! You can just make up your own :)



Chapter 1: Come Home Soon
Shadow of the Serpent by KEDme [Young Teens]
starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 32]
The sequel to Home Alone. Harry is whisked away to an ancient island to be trained in Occlumency. What he finds is another complication to add to his already complicated life. Will friendship, love, loyalty, bravery, and honor be enough to save him from the Shadow of the Serpent that haunts his life? H/G, with some R/H in later chapters.

Whoa! What a chapter! You really turned everything on its head. Please don't tell me Ginny's dead. I bet that wasn't her, just someone polyjuiced to look like her or some form of illusion. How will Harry get out of this one? Please update soon.




Chapter 22: Ambush
After being apart for more than two years, Harry and Ginny are more than ready to see each other again. But will things go as smoothly as expected? And how much has changed in two years?

Great work! It's sad about all the favorite characters who died, but it was a war. Sometimes we just can't prevent the deaths of the ones we love. At least, Harry and Ginny survived and are starting to live a good life. Of course, I don't think it'll take that long for the final confrontation between Voldie and Harry to occur but it's a great concept. Nicely done.
