Wow...just...wow...a totally different spin on the Lily/James hating each other, with a descriptive and intriguing reason as to why she, much like Harry, loves Hogwarts more than home, and adding the Order in without being too blantant about it. Love it, please keep writing!

Author's Response: I'm very pleased that you're enjoying the fic. Don't worry, I will keep writing! :)



Chapter 12: Fall From Grace
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.

Love it!  My only complaints are grammar/visual related, really.  In a few of the chapters, (I can't remember which), you mispelled sheer, (as shear), and some others with double ees doing an ea, which makes the word totally different.

Chapter 14(as it was posted), It's Not Over Yet, has three different versions in it, one still retains your markings for annoucing the title, (bold and italicized), the second one is just bold but has no spaces between paragraphs or speech, and the third is regular text without spaces again.  Just figured I'd let you know, so you could fix it.

Amazing besides that, I think I'm in love with your story.  Very, very well done.  I like it better than HBP, acutally!  Keep on writing, and have fun in Japan.



Author's Response: I'll take a look at it.  You have no idea how difficult it is to format the chapters on this site!  I thought I had gotten all the bugs worked out with formatting, but I guess I was wrong.  I'll take a look at it as soon as I have time.  In the meantime, I also publish on SIYE, Phoenix Song, Checkmated, and FF.net where the formatting is much better.  Please check that out.  As for the spelling errors... I'm not the best or most consistant speller, especially when I get in a groove, but I do have the chapters beta read and usually several other people besides me look it over before I publish.  It's amazing that little things like that get by, but somehow they always do.  I suppose it's the difference in reading for content and reading for errors.  *shrugs*  I'll look for them but at this point I feel my time would be better spent working on finishing this story.  Thanks for letting me know about the problems... I'll definitely look into it.  Thanks for reading and reviewing!



Chapter 23: Lost
starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 4]
Imagine a place where the magical world is embraced by Muggles, not all magic is performed with a wand, and the seemingly innocuous sport of soccer has taken on a whole new meaning. That place is Australia – and two completely unassuming exchange students are about to find themselves in the thick of it all. Rated for language, alcohol and drug use, and mature themes.

Love it, Aeryn, keep writing! Your idea of the bible quote and all is pure brilliance....and I could go on and on and on, but I won't... Heh, would you mind if I took your idea for elementalship and used it in one of my fics, with credit?


Chapter 2: Chapter 1
United by rhysandor [Young Teens]
starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 20]

The legend of the Golden Trio is well documented through the first six books of the Harry Potter series that have been published. This, however, is what happens when the Trio team up with Team Deja Vu, three Hogwarts students one year behind Harry, Ron and Hermione. This story will be more of an altered history, complete with original dialogue and two new characters, than an alternate universe. Told from multiple POVs.

Sorry I haven't reviewed in a long time...anywho, love how you're doing it, and forgive my mistake about Kylie in my previous review.  Variations are fine, and it's completely understandable how you'd keep the first year of the Golden Trio rather small, as without Deja Vu, there's not precisely much to the story.  I can't wait for the first/second year, though!  That'un's sure to be awesome!


Chapter 9: Chapter 9 Platform 9 3/4
Begins where HBP left off.  A mysterious letter from Dumbledore instructs Harry to return to school for his seventh year.  In addition to NEWT preparation and other school duties, Harry and friends attempt to retrieve and destroy Voldemort's Horcruxes and plot revenge on certain enemies.  Relationships blossom, new mysteries surface while others are solved, and Harry prepares to meet his nemesis one final time.  Harry's powers are tested, and he discovers that not everything is as is appears to be.  H/G, R/Hr

Oooh, cliffie.  Will Poncy Percy be allowed in the fold again?  Or will he be hexed into oblivion by his hot-headed siblings?

Lovely work so far, keep it up!  I like the Dumbledore talking to Harry from the dead (sort of) angle, it keeps things interesting.




Chapter 11: A Birthday Party

During Occlumency lessons in the course of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Professor Snape notices something... off in Harry's memories. Non-Slash.

It's good.  I'm normally not one for the 'Snape-rescues-Harry' type, but yours it makes sense.  Neither are precisely happy about it, but know that over all, it's for the best.  Too bad Sirius had to die anyway...:(  Oh well.

Author's Response:

You're right, this one does.  I started wondering why Snape hadn't noticed anything amiss in Harry's head during Occulmency lessons.  I mean, the man was a spy for heaven's sake!  He's supposed to notice these things.  Add to that his teaching duties, and the reporting laws covering teachers (at least in the Muggle world), and I had something a little different.

Most 'Snape-rescues-Harry' stories are set during the summer.  While it is a bit satisfying, I suppose, to catch the Dursleys in the act, it's much more plausible for it to be discovered during the school year.

 Part of me is sorry for doing Sirius in, but I've had time to accept his 'death' in OotP.  I think what annoyed me the most in the original was the ambiguous nature of it.  So when I decided that he had to die in my version, I made it a definite death.  Yeah, he's dead, but at least he didn't slip behind a ruddy curtain this time, and there's no chance of him mysteriously reappearing alive!

Anyway, I'm glad you're enjoying this story, and I hope you continue to.

Love it, as I've said once before.  Poor Harry's so confused!  My one thing is the boy attempting to assault Ginny is described with 'dark brown hair, bluish grey eyes and a thin nose, with small brown eyes'  He has four eyes?  ^_^  Just figured I'd point that out!

Chapter 1: Summer Rain
The Modern Marauders by Konrad [Young Teens]
starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 7]

As Harry, Ron, Hermione and Ginny swear an allegiance to destroy the remaining Horcruxes, the Order of the Phoenix has other fish to fry: apparently Voldemort discovered the existence of a fourth Unforgivable Curse which spreads the black death upon the victim. Can Harry destroy the Horcruxes in time, or will medieval horror return?

Many thanks to GryffindorGoddess06, who has beta'd every chapter since the third chapter.

I'm bad at leaving reviews, I don't know why, but I will say I love it!  Completely and utterly love this.  So Snape put the roses on the grave then, eh?  And does Harry still have the locket?  I guess I'll have to wait and see to find out.  I'm just glad Snape's not purely evil.

Author's Response:

Thank you for reviewing! (I should really ask for reviews more in my author notes)

Snape did put the roses on the grave, and he'll return within a few chapters. That's all I'm going to say though.

The next two chapters are with my beta at the moment, and I'm writing the thirteenth chapter, so I'll be able to update soon.

Oh yeah, if you'd put close attention to the scene where Harry's hit by the Noxanimudiscerpo, then you'll be able to guess something ;-)
