Ginevra Weasley has a secret. It could ruin her family, her job and the rickety peace now settled across the wizarding world. Harry Potter knows this secret, and sets out to make the choices his father once made a long time ago. But something’s up with Harry, and Ginny must find out what, before both of them tear the wizarding world apart. Follow the story set out by Ginevra Weasley years later, when she quills ‘Knowing Harry’.

Chapter 1: Monday, Monday

What was the REAL reason that Harry didn't want to leave the Hogwarts Express at the end of OotP? There is nothing in Cannon to suggest that this actually happened, but that is the great thing about the world of S.S. Potter - WHAT IF? LIFE IS BUT A DREAM is number three in the world of S.S. Potter and comes between THE FORGOTTEN GIRL and TOWARDS TOMORROW

This is really good!  The part where they make fun of Seamus and Lavender was hysterical. Nice work!

An interesting little story, very different. It could use more polish - you separated the end there, but I'm really not sure why - but I think you did a good job with this. It was refreshing.

150 points is really quite a lot, though. Maybe try a smaller number, like eighty or so.



Author's Response: I wrote this story over a year ago and I'm glad you like it.  The reason I separated the end was that at the time I was exploring actually writing Professor McGonagall's confrontation of Severus Snape.  After several false starts I gave up: I was never satisfied with the results and thought the story still had merit without that scene.  Thanks for your review.



Chapter 1: One-shot
Argue Fondue’s make you vent your frustrations by arguing with the person who you’re most frustrated with. Not only that, minutes after, you confess your secret feelings (if any) to the person. With a small Fred and George sneak attack of slipping them in the duff at dinner, Harry and Ginny find themselves facing the effects of the candy.

Haha! That was cute, and such a Fred-and-George kind of thing to do. You really write Harry and Ginny's argument quite well, so props for that. A nice little piece, and I enjoyed it! Thanks and do take care!


Chapter 1: Hey You! Give me S'more Fondue!
After Voldemort's defeat, Ginny decides that it's the big things
and the little moments in life that really count.

Haha! Oh, this is brilliant! Absolutely marvelous, the way you've balanced emotions in this. Ginny's thoughts are completely in character, as are Harry's reactions to everything. I love the way you wrote this - so realistic, with just that perfect twinge of almost irreverent humor - and you put it together very cleanly. Great job on this, and thanks for it. Do take care!

Aww, this is beautifull. Masterfully crafted, truly.

At Hogwarts, Seventh Years are given an assignment to write such a letter for the new First Years. Sirius decides to actually take an assignment, well seriously...sort of. He decides to look back on his entire Hogwarts years and write down his list of things not to do at Hogwarts.

Oh dear, I'd forgotten how much I loved this story. The lists are the best part, although you certainly write all of it well.

 I'm glad to have refound this! It never fails to make me smile and giggle madly like a four year old who's just discovered sugar. :) Thanks always for the laughs!



Author's Response:

I wouldn\'t limit it to four year-olds.  My best friend gets like that when he has too much sugar and he\'s twenty-two!  Thanks, I\'m glad you found it again, too!




Chapter 5: Badgering Bellatrix

Seventh year sequel to Power of Emotion. Harry is recovering from his captivity at the end of his sixth year, but he's hiding how much it's effecting him. With his powers increasing, and Voldemort now aware of the prophecy, can Harry find the secret to destroying him before Voldemort learns the contents of the ancient texts? Would this be HP fanfiction if it were that easy?

Alright, well, I've read this fic about a bazillion times, but I know I haven't reviewed it on here and I don't remember reviewing the early chapters on PhoenixSong or anywhere else. So, I thought I'd leave you a note here as I'm rereading to let you know that this is my absolute favorite chapter (although I adore the first chapter of this story to itty bitty emotional pieces as well) out of everything you've written. The dialouge and thoughts in this just seem to come together so naturally, and your emotions are at their truest. So, this is just a little review note to thank you again for writing this, and to let you know that this is adored even if it doesn't have the eighty bazillion reviews it deserves on here (not yet, at least... once Lent is over, I'm sending quite a few friends over to read this, so hopefully you'll get some random reviews then). Thanks again for all your wonderful writing, and do take care!

In some cultures, it is said that each time a picture is taken of someone, a bit of their soul is removed. After being in the limelight for so long, Harry Potter is apt to agree.

This kicks so much butt.

The ending? Owns my soul, no pun intended.

Brilliance.

This was sweet and couldn't pass without comment. Marvelous grasp of emotions.

 “Yes,” Fred grimaced, “there’s absolutely nothing wrong with wanting you to come home in one piece.”

 ^^I love it. Thanks for this!
