I am a 33 yo mom with a wonderful husband and 5 1/2 yo son, who left a big 4 accounting firm after 10 years there last year to start her own scrapbooking store.

I love all things Harry Potter and thoroughly enjoy the Wizardtales site!

I loved this, James! I didn't realize it was Neville until Seamus'and Dean's present came...until then, I was sure it was Harry! All around, this was a great "coming of age" story. I like how Neville went to tell his parents of his plans - I can totally envision this happening - and SUSAN STAYED!!! *melts* That's so sweet! They make a very cute couple. You should follow it up with a one-shot where Susan is perilously hurt (not dies! I don't wish that upon Neville), where they've been dating throughout the war, and he comes to realize what she means to him! That would be wonderful! Great job!

Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed this. I loved writing for Neville, I probably share the most personally with him. I'll keep that one shot in mind :)

Squeeeee!!! I love this fic! It is so beautiful; heart-warming, heart-breaking and life-affirming, all at the same time! When they are questioning each other to make sure they are who they really appear to be...*sigh* The whole fic's just so beautiful! Wonderful, wonderful job!

Author's Response: Oh thanks so much. I am so glad that you enjoyed it.

This was just absolutely beautiful! I just melted at the letter Harry wrote to Ginny, and how strong Ginny must have been to be able to destroy it. I especially liked how you mention that she'd count to 142 when she was old and gray. *sigh* Just beautiful. Excellent, excellent story!

Author's Response: Thank you much dears! So glad that you enjoyed it enough to leave your comments!



Chapter 2: Part Two
Giving high school essays a Marauder twist, this fiction is centered around the idea that some seniors in high school are require to write a letter to incoming freshman before they graduate. 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.

HAHA! I'm so glad to see you posting over here already! Welcome! I really enjoyed this chapter! I think my favorite part is that you have the by-play between the Marauders and Lily down so well. My favorites on the list so far are no's 2 & 7, especially 7. That's quite sound advice! ;) Great job, and glad to see you here!

Author's Response: Thanks so much for everything, Rachael! For recommending this site to me, for approving my first chapter, and for giving me my first review on here! Thank you, thank you, thank you! ~Ever Changing Anthem

Katy, what a wonderful start to a fic! Quite original ideas...I love the inclusion of the planetary influence, and I'm a sucker for anything with Dragons...although I am wonding how Snape could be married to one ;) This is a great fic...I am very intrigued, and I can't wait to see where you take this story! Also, it was great chatting with you last night, and welcome to the site! Rachael

Leslie, this is a great story, and I'm so excited to see it here on Wizardtales! It has consistently amazed me that you've taken such a horrible concept such as "Connubium Conceptio", combined with the circumstances that it was applied, and masterfully weaved it into a beautiful love story. Wonderful job, and welcome to the site! Rachael


Chapter 1: Connubium Conceptio
The companion story to "A Matter of Circumstance". The events as seen from Ginny's point-of-view. Pairing: Harry/Ginny Rated R for sexual situations

This is quite fun getting to read the chapters from both Circumstance and Perspective at the same time. Hooray! Welcome to the site, I am so excited to see your work here! I had forgotten how "blah" Ginny had been about her relationship with Mark...waiting 6 months to accept his proposal...no whirlwind romance full of passion...accepting her relationship as "practical"...She was convinced that with time, she would feel those stirrings deep within her. There was no logical reason for her not to. ,,,poor Ginny, thinking that "logic" is a good ruler for the relationship with the man she supposedly wants to spend the rest of her life with. Of course, we know who she belongs with *wink, wink*, and so do Ron and Hermione, apparently. I had missed that little "look" between them the first time I read this. Ah, well...Ginny'll come to her senses eventually. Excellent start to a wonderful story! Welcome!

Awww…poor Harry, seeing visions of Volemort’s actions again. That sucks for him. You killed Cho! Meh. Can’t say I’m that upset, frankly. I’m just glad it wasn’t Charlie Weasley…he seems to be on every ff author’s hit list recently, LoL. Oh, cool! Lots of doors leading to who knows where or who knows what in Slytherin’s chamber! Very cool premise, I haven’t read that before. *reads further down* OH HOW COOL!!! Even better, they’re the rooms the RoR turned into! Very original and unique idea; I honestly haven’t come across this yet in fandom…well done! …felt the room’s energy quake, strong enough to make him lose his footing and fall to the… the… err… white. *snicker* I like how you interject little bits of humor here and there in the story…that’s just great! Wow, is Harry going to be able to train with the founders somehow? I am really, really intrigued by this story…great job!

The founders can read Harry’s mind while he’s in the …white? Pretty cool, and I like how you’ve had Slytherin come to his senses about purity of blood. Especially if he’s been “beyond the veil” so to speak until Harry summoned him, it’s nice to think that we’d overcome our prejudices and become more tolerant of others in death/the afterlife. Yay! I know JKR kind of quibbled in that interview after HBP about Harry being Gryffindor’s descendent, but I still think he is. I think there’s a whole tie in between his parents living in “Godric’s Hollow” to Harry pulling out his sword from the Sorting Hat, etc. Very cool. Ooooo…Hogwarts attacked! I hope the next chapter has Harry kicking so serious butt!

Ooooo…what’s Harry been up to? Why’s he so dirty when he comes out of the RoR? Quite interesting, but why isn't Harry joining the in the fight? The Founders must be quite persuasive ;) I like the way Ginny welcomed Harry back *wink* Very cute.
