Hiya! I'm a 31-year-old Buckeye who is addicted to Harry Potter (but hey, aren't we all?) I work for a company that publishes local weekly papers and have gone back to school full time for my MLIS. Most of my peers think I'm insane, and I don't contradict them.

Hmmm...intriguing. I can see why this is talked about so much. It's going to be an interesting dynamic, with Dumbledore's mentor here, seeing how Dumbledore has always been "the" great wizard.

I just loved Sirius' letter! Excellent insight on Dumbledore, and boy does he have harry pegged on Ginny! Loved the recommendation on the Astronomy tower, hee hee hee. That sounds like Sirius.

I hope one day we can look back on this and laugh about it. My 15-year-old daughter, my baby, my only girl, is in a bed with a boy who is only a few months older and who is the number one target of You Know Who and the Death Eaters, they are in a house full of magic-hating muggles; and after tucking them in, I have to go home to your father and convince him how great of a thing it all is. LOLOL! Bloody brilliant. Very nice exchange between Ron and Hermione. You could cut the teen tension/angst with a knife. Great little exchange between Harry and Dudley, too, hee! Not too surprising Dudley would be eyeing Harry's cuter female friends :)

LOVE the twins. It never occurred to me that they might have the audacity to send that infamous Valentine, and while I think canon will say it was Ginny, I can see them pulling such a stunt.

Chapter 7: Chapter 06: How Many Friends
Reviewer: Madeline Fabray (Signed)
Increadible chapter! Wow, I loved the reading of the will. Sirius really sticks it to Bellatrix and Narcissa. Bellatrix "coming in person to claim" her share -- hee hee hee, indeed. I laughed out loud during Sirius' words to Tonks and the Weasleys, and the "baby race." But I cringed a bit reading Sirius' cancelling out Dumbledore's guardianship. I, like Dumbledore, wonder about the consequences of that little move. It was very in character, though.

Yay! Ron gets his Agrippa card. Heh, love your Molly. She is one you do NOT want to hack off.

Chapter 9: Chapter 08: I've Had Enough
It is a sleepy afternoon, so what is a Dark Lord to do? Binns to the rescue.

When one talks about Sirius's death, they usually feel sorry for Harry. They don't realize that he isn't the only one who recieved Sirius's death hard. Remus Lupin, is hurt beyond imaginable. He trys to hold it in, and not show emotion, but inside he's sad, he find his life a nightmarE. He's alone in this world...Remus reflects on old childhood memories.

I loved the flashbacks and the journal, very well done. Especially that last entry, heh heh. Poor Remus, I think so many are focused on Potter in the story that he is forgotten. Wonderful job capturing his anguish.

Chapter 1: If Only...
Ginny has been forced to marry Draco Malfoy, but her heart still belongs to Harry. Will she ever be able to break free from this unwanted marriage? Will Harry help her? A story of passion, blackmail, Greek gods and a most surreal place for playing Quidditch! Join Harry and Ginny on their odyssey through despair and hope, faith and love, amidst Voldemort’s machinations!

OK, my skin is crawling. I wasn't sure what to make of Tom falling in love, but in some ways, that makes him even more scarey at the end.

I loved the interview with Trelawney -- Dolly Bainbridge *snicker* Poor Ginny, what a mess! Draco is such a snake.
