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.

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!

Oh, ouch! That was a heavy, emotional conversation -- and one heck of an ending!

Hmmm...I'm beginning to see the connection between the prologue and the rest of the story, but just. I have to wonder what is up your sleeve?

Okaaay...so Harry has an alias -- his cousin's name. Heh, this keeps getting better!

Oh wow, what a conundrum! Wasn't expecting the twist about Voldemort's daughter. That was a stunning bit of news, as was what Harry had to do.

That was a riot! Wow, an interesting take on Firenze coming to Hogwarts to teach. I like how he has some doubts. And I LOVED Trelawney!


Chapter 1: [none]

Harry's summer takes a bizarre turn as he's subjected to the strangest dream he's ever had. What does it mean, and why does he get the feeling that Voldemort is somehow related to it?

Woah. If I've ever read a creepier, more symbolic dream sequence, I'm hard pressed to remember when. Very interesting, with the falling walls, and Voldemort's temptations. Brrr!

I like your obscuring orb, neat invention! Loved Dumbledore's remarks about the "fourth new member," that sounds like him. And Lupin (wolf boy) being 'feral' *snicker* Love the dreams, creepy!

I really liked how you aren't sure what the potion is going to do -- or is doing. Snape doesn't do a complete 180 and become Mr. Happy Man, which I've seen done. He just goes really loopy. Poor Neville -- especially when he is comparing Snape with his grandmother -- hee hee!


Chapter 1: Potions Mishap
starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 5]

Draco Malfoy realizes he may have an ally in Cho Chang. "She hates Potter almost as much as I do." He enlists her aid in a plot to take the Quidditch Cup from Gryffindor and put Harry in his place. Could this be love?

An excellent yarn! This story had more twists and turns than Harry's flight pattern going after the snitch.


Chapter 1: Snitch Strategies
In the summer before his sixth year at Hogwarts, Harry Potter learns to come to terms with the death of Sirius. As he heals and grows emotionally, he learns how to enjoy life again. But there’s a war on, and Voldemort’s primary objective is to kill Harry Potter, by any means necessary. As a result, Harry and his friends have a very adventurous sixth year at Hogwarts. Canon-based with some OC.

“Maybe he’s an American rap singer,” the teenager suggested to her sister, trying to be helpful. “They wear baggy clothes like that.” *snicker* Interesting about the mosaic. Harry is pretty good at seeing patterns. Don't know if I've ever seen a "Harry gets a summer job" fic before -- interesting antidote/solution to putting up with the Dursleys!

Author's Response: I thought of the "rap singer" idea the first time I read about poor Harry and his horribly baggy clothes. It was fun to find a way to fit that into this story! And yes, Harry's good at seeing patterns -- that will be a help to him throughout his life. Making mosaics seemed to be a good way to use that skill. And many kids that age (in my experience) want to get a summer job just to have extra spending money. Harry's never had ANY spending money in the Muggle world, so what a kick for him! He couldn't buy Muggle clothes with his wizarding money (even converted) because Vernon would want to know where he got the money! But since he knows Harry's earning it, Harry's free to buy what he wants -- yay! Thanks for a very nice review! Abraxan
