I am a starving music student who spends more time with her piano than she does anything else.

Many of my stories overlap into each other, so here is a quick guideline as to what to read and in what order.

A Part of Me is a standalone poem, and currently the only poetry on my author’s page.

Crashing Down Around Me exists in its own universe. While I am rather proud of this fic and would love for you to take the time to read it, it contains a cousin pairing, as it was written with my friend in mind, who invented the pairing.

Crush is a chaptered prequel to my story Fly. Crush is chaptered and will be slowly updated. As such, you do not need to read the one to understand the other. They exist in the same universe and are more like companion pieces in this Next-Gen universe.

What the Stories Say and Happy New Year, Darling exist in the same universe. What the Stories Say is the first in this duo, though you do not really have to read it in order to enjoy Happy New Year, Darling, it simply makes certain aspects of it easier to understand.

Lucky and Tongue-Tied together create a full story of Lily and Scorpius’ lives. It is probably best to read Tongue-Tied first, though both could be read alone or even in the opposite order.

Rebound is a single story written for ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor for her birthday.

Realisation was my first fic and was written for a fic exchange for FawkesToTheRescue. It stands alone.

I’m Moving On is more of a introspective character study than anything else. Someday, I hope to complete it.

Unspoken, Lost in the Stars, and Casts all exist in what I call the Andrew universe. The complete story of Andrew is yet to be told, but these three in themselves create a small story arc. Unspoken and Lost in the Stars could be read alone, but Casts will make no sense without reading the other two.

Today is Victory Day is a fic in itself. It started off as a drabble and grew to be so much more. In the last few months, it has become the pride of my author’s page, and I would love if you took the time to read this one.

Just a few things.
Ron's Luna comment...it should be plain, not plane.

Goyle's first comment was fantastic, it was definately in character, at least in my opinion, as he was never viewed as smart. As well, I thought that Ron's reaction to Michael Corner in the Cho section was very appropriate. Jordan was highly appriate in that scene, but would they have email? I love how she married Percy, they are like perfect for each other.

The Krum scene also captured everyone's charcters in a very satiracal way, it was really good.

Snape is perfect in the Hermione scene, as is Draco :) Draco is also perfect for Harry as well. Just the spelling of famous was wrong :P

Overall, fantastic. There were some OoC moments (ie Harry) but there were some moments of great satire play on the characters, great job.

The Muggle Muggle Studies Teacher by TheSmirkingDragon

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: After being hooked up with a job teaching at Hogwarts by her little sister, Muggle Chastity Fagman is the first Muggle Muggle Studies teacher Hogwarts has ever seen. But after the Headmaster slips about her strictly non-magical status, all of her students know that she can't do anything magical. What will happen in her first class?

This story contains some language not suitable for younger readers and crude humor. Maybe.

Im too tired to do a good review, so I thought that the first 3 quarters was really funny, but I feel as if the end could have been expanded. You have a great sense of humour though :)

Author's Response: Why thank you, my Mapffy-Poo! And it was a bit rushed, I'm sure. I'd been writing for a dead line, so I wasn't able to take as much time as I would have otherwise (though without the deadline, it probably wouldn't have been finished, so take that as you will. :P) *squiggles* ~Selina

A Bedtime Story for Albus by Gmariam

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Albus Potter asks for a bedtime story, so Harry tells him a magical tale about twin brothers who learn a lesson about life and laughter from their mentor, Zachariah Zonko. This story was written for the May One-Shot Challenge by Gmariam of Ravenclaw.

That was absolutely adorable, and I loved every minute of it. It was the perfect mixturee of funny and intense, and Albus's reactions and comments were perfect :)

Author's Response: Thanks so much, Maple! I'm glad you enjoyed this, I enjoyed planning it out and had fun writing it. I'm glad you liked Albus, he's a favorite of mine. Thanks for reading this old story, and for the lovely review!! ~Gina :)

Snape Didn't Die by OliveOil_Med

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Winner of the First-Annual Ravenclaw Quicksliver Quill Award for Best Humor, Wittiest Writing!

Snape didn't die, he simply joined the Witness Relocation Program. A funny slogan for an avatar, but what if some crazed author somewhere decided to write the story behind it?

On the run from all those who would want to see his head on a platter, Severus Snape is put through a series of tests. But between scantily-clad Ministry agents, seeing-eye elves, and an all-witch school and all the drama that goes along with it, he is beginning to wonder how much worse the alternative would really be.

Happy Birthday, Chante'!

A Gryffindor Tradition by Gmariam

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: It’s April Fool’s Day at Hogwarts, and three generations must uphold a Gryffindor tradition.
This story was written by Gmariam of Ravenclaw for the April Fool’s Day One-Shot Challenge.

I loved the way how you incorperated the generations into it, I think that's really cool. I also thought that your use of Neville and APWBD was amazing. Great story :)

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed this story, it was fun to write. Since we know Neville taught at Hogwarts it seemed natural to include him. And I have to admit that APWBD was my beta's idea. Thanks for reading this story and for the lovely review, I appreciate it! ~Gina :)

Second Chance at Life and Love by mudbloodproud

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: “Is it true five years have passed since that night? That I have been dead for five years?”

Hermione had known love with Ron. But, now he was married to someone else and Hermione was alone with only her work at the Ministry to keep her busy.

But, when she was asked by Minister Shacklebolt to handle a problem, would Hermione find love with someone from her past?

Sirius Black’s life was cut short when he fell through the Veil in the Department of Mysteries. But, somehow, he inadvertently found a way to come back through the Veil.

When he was told it was five years after he fell, Sirius didn’t believe Kingsley. Sirius found himself being held in a room in the Department of Mysteries. A prisoner again.

When the door opened and a grown-up Hermione walked through it, Sirius was stunned. How could this be the same girl he had known?

This is the story of a lost girl, a man back from the dead, and a love story that will be talked about for years.

Memories by A H

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: Harry takes Ginny on a trip down memory lane. Some memories should be cherished forever, and sometimes we have to put the past behind us so that we can make new memories.
Reviewer: Maple_and_PheonixFeather Signed
Date: 09/08/10 Title: Chapter 1: Memories

What a lovely lovely story :) Harry/Ginny is probably the only canon ship I read and both characters were really in character. I really like how you said Ginny looked like Mrs. Weasley, as there are a few times in the books that that is mentioned. I also love how Harry's proposal wasn't neat and tidy, reminds me of his Quidditch days where none of his saves were smooth. I JUST REALIZED I KNOW THE COMMERCIAL!!!! Haha.

The last line is absolutely adorable. I hate fluff, but this is an a really cute fic and I highly enjoyed it.

The Chance and the Black by welshdevondragon

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: "Alphard,

I love you. I love you. I love you. And you know I would never waste those words. I would never say those words if I didn’t mean them.

This is the letter Alphard Black is reading at the breakfast table with his sister Walburga watching him very, very closely.

Why did Alphard Black leave all his money to his errant nephew Sirius?

Might it have been because the letter he read one morning in the early fifties was from a Muggleborn?

My first slash story ever! (I'm so glad it was light!) I really liked your characterisation as a whole. I think that it's great how you basically wrote completely new characters and yet I totally believed that they were part of the Potterverse. I also really liked the amount of dialogue in this story, it really makes the plot move along. I really like how you took something that I would never ever read and make it something that I really enjoyed, for me that is the markings of good author!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for reviewing and taking the time to read my story! There was quite a lot of backstory which I managed to get into this and I'm glad you like the dialogue! I do, however, seem only to write convincing non-fluffy dialogue! Anyway thank you so much for reading and reviewing! Alex x

Memories of A Lesson Learned by Gmariam

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: A young man remembers both his father and the lessons learned from a mysterious apothecary in Hogsmeade.
This is Gmariam of Ravenclaw writing for the Winter Snows prompt, Stirring
Reviewer: Maple_and_PheonixFeather Signed
Date: 12/31/11 Title: Chapter 1: One-Shot

Wow, Gina. This was beautiful! The emotion in this little story feels immensely real and not forced. It’s also a very different Teddy than what I’m used to, and a very different world, too. And yet, it’s believable. You give me a world I don’t want to see, but yet I accept it.

Even though we are not told Teddy’s approximate age until the end, it is very clear that he is older throughout the entirety of the article. You really portray his maturity and how much he’s learned simply through the way he is writing.

The character that really intrigued me was the man in the apothecary. Before the nose was mentioned, I thought it was Harry. This struck me as odd, as Harry wasn’t very good at potions. But then you mentioned the nose, and I ran to see if this was AU. I think that the mystery of the person is perfect, yet there is enough there for those of us who have that little bit of Sevgirl in us to see it as him. And in complete honesty, it fits him all too well. The dislike, yet the hidden respect, it’s all very Snape. When the apothecary died, I was so very sad, it was like losing Snape all over again. The line of him having no one was so touching and beautiful.

I really like the way that is structured, right down to the little blurb at the bottom of the article. It really feels like a newspaper article. What I also really liked about the structure were the really small, one sentence paragraphs. I think they really emphasise the important parts of the article. What I also found really effective was how you introduced him through his parents. Showing the things that he got from them and showing them in both light and dark perspectives was a very interesting way of doing things. I also really liked the comparison of Teddy’s new outlook to a spell “ very Potterverse without feeling forced.

I found it a bit ironic how you introduce Tonks first, and yet she is really not a big part of the article. At all. And yet, you give her the place of importance.

I think that this piece had a brilliant sense of flow to it. It really slowly showed how Teddy grew to accept, not only his father, but himself. The progression is slow and natural, like life.

One thing that caught my notice was that Teddy referred to Voldemort as both Voldemort and You-Know-Who. I think, for the sake of consistency, it would be better to just choose one name.

Once again, you have moved me emotionally. I really enjoyed reading this.

Happy New Year!


Author's Response: Thank you so much for the amazing review, Maple! I really appreciate it, since this story felt a bit overlooked at the time and I rather liked writing it. It was a bit different, trying to structure it as something for a newspaper, so I'm glad that worked. I'm glad Teddy came through as different but believable. And I'm so glad you liked the apothecary! Hee hee - I will admit I had Snape in mind as I was writing this, but he is dead, you know. ;) I just thought the parallels between him and Remus were too similar for Teddy not to recognize them and learn from them. Interesting point about Tonks that I really had never thought about. And your are exactly right about the Voldemort/You Know Who thing! Someday I will fix that, lol. Thank you so much for reading this. I really appreciate all the lovely feedback!! ~Gina :)

Carnal Desires of a Rat and a Dog by Nitwit Blubber Oddment Tweak x

Did Peter Pettigrew constantly tag after his superior friends? Or was he in fact equal to the reckless, confident Sirius Black? Perhaps they were more alike than anyone could have guessed...

It’s weird, slash is not something I usually read, but today, when I found myself in need of a fic to read, I remembered this one and thought, yes, this one will be a good one.

I think that the reason that this is something I was willing to reread is that it isn’t really a slash fic for the sake of being sake of being a slash fic, rather, I feel like it is an investigation into the feelings of characters, and the struggles they face in coming to terms with what they are feeling, so even though I may not connect to the exact situation, I can connect on a level where I have struggled to accept something about myself.

I loved your use of second person in this fic. Often times, second person can overbearing and quite cloying, as you don’t want to be told what you are supposed to be feeling all the time. I don’t think this is the case in this fic at all. I was really able to forget about it and feel my way through the story, and I think that this is why it makes this a slash story I’m not totally uncomfortable reading “ there are moments where I am just swept away and can forget who the characters are, and this made me really get in the groove of the story and just take it as it goes. It really added a great sense of reality for the reader, as everything was really described how one would see and feel things.

I found your characterisation of Peter to be so believable. It is so easy to make Peter the uncool awkward one, but instead, you make him someone a little bit more interesting and someone who you can understand. How you write him really makes his actions later in life believable. For example, in the beginning, he talks about wanting to be on top just for once. For me, this just rang so true for Peter, as I think that one reason he joined the Death Eaters in the first place was because he wanted to be the best of his friends, the one who was seen as superior to others, and he was willing to risk his friends for that, just like he risked Sirius’ immediate safety in this story.

I loved how you added little moments of relief throughout the story. For example, when you have the whole “Mr. White” exchange, the tension from the previous few paragraphs diffuses a bit. We are able to release some of the tension we have gained from Sirius’ cranky response, and we can breathe again. I thought this scene was very effectively used, and not just used for a brief laugh.

I love how you really tapped into the feelings of young teenagers. I think, that for the most part, all fifteen year olds want to do is fit in. Like Remus says, you can only rebel and be different for so long, eventually, you are going to just want to blend into the crowd and hide for a bit. I think Sirius expresses this perfectly when he says that he is “sick of being wrong”. I love getting the chance to Sirius without any of the facades he puts on. For this one moment, he is vulnerable and he is honest, and it is just so resonant with the reader that we really feel for him, not only on the level of being the odd one out in his family, but as a young teenager, something we can really connect with.

I think that the most touching moment for me was the moment when Peter talks to Sirius. Everything that Remus talked about felt so real, and really, who would know what it is like to have such a huge secret that you feel could crush you than Remus. He just felt so wise and like such an old soul, something I’ve always personally loved about adult Remus. This scene really made me smile and nodding, because I just felt like Remus had it and that he articulated it perfectly.

Overall, I found this fic to be very refreshing. There is a lot of deviation from Marauder Era clichés, which is great. I think that what is really great is that you took the two Marauders that never did get married and put them together. By doing this, you have made it so much more believable. And really, when you think about it, this could totally have happened, and Sirius’ reaction to Peter in PoA actually makes sense if this were the real story, because overall, the feeling you really get from Sirius is betrayal, and having your first love do what Peter did would truly be a betrayal of epic proportions.

Overall, I did really enjoy this fic, especially in terms of characterisation.

Pregnant at seventeen. I was not that kind of girl. My final year at Hogwarts was supposed to be the best yet – filled with Quidditch matches, parties with my best friends and Outstandings in all my NEWTs. But now I was facing morning sickness, young mothers’ group and irate teachers, all whilst trying to hold my relationship with Lysander together.

I am really enjoying this story!! I've never really read next-Gen as a really don't care for it, but this story intrigued me, thus I started reading it.

I think that your characterization is really good. I think that you've taken a bunch of characters we really know nothing about and have written them in a totally believable way.

I also think that your plot is moving along extremely well. You have it going at a good pace, and I'm really enjoying it.

Just a few typos that I found:
‘My family are insane,’ I told her, and she laughed." It should be my family IS insane, as family is a singular unit.

I’m betting your grandparents will know about by morning.’

I think this one should be I'm betting your grandparents will know about it by morning.

I'm really enjoying this fic, and I think that your quality of writing is extremely high.

‘Don’t be ridiculous.’ Mum grabbed my hand, pulling me along like I was a child. I considered screaming that she was kidnapping me, but our relationship was strained enough already. Also, if the Auror office sent Dad to investigate a possible kidnapping in St Mungo’s it probably wouldn’t end well.

Innocence by Evora

Rated: 6th-7th Years •
Summary: If Remus hadn't been born, the lives of the people he had entered would be different, correct? He wouldn't have caused them pain, disappointment... and grief. Most of all, he wouldn't have been the cause of why his parents' happiness was suddenly gone.

Of course, it was all just wishful thinking. He was still a werewolf, no matter what he did.

Date: 09/29/10 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Dinny, I love it :)

This was the first ever D/A story I've ever read, and I totally love this.

I think that your title perfectly fits the story, as Remus is blaming himself and hating himself for what he did, yet he is in some way innocent as he really has no control.

You captured Remus extremely well in this story. Everything that you wrote is 100% believable for me. This especially makes sense in why he never seems to let himself fall in love and trys to run away from his baby...because he's afraid he'll hurt them. I like how you got him to confess to Lily. I think this works because I think it would be easier for him to confess to Lily then it would be to 'the boys'. I also liked the loyalty shown in Peter, Sirius, and James. It feels so real.

My only issue is this section here:

It won’t be long before he starts ruining the lives of his dearest friends, and what he feared most in the world will come to him.

He’ll be alone.

The tense feels off to me, but I really am not good at tenses, so I can't correct it.

I really like how you ended the story with "I didn't mean it" I feel it loops back to the title of him in some sense being innocent of his crime.

Great great great job, Dinny!!! You made me fall in love with Remus in this story, and to think I almost didn't read it because it was a D/A story...

Author's Response: Oh, wow! I'm honoured to have been the first author you've read stories of in D/A! :) I'm honestly glad to read that you loved it. The title is meant to give emphasis to Remus' inner turmoil and I'm happy you caught that little detail. I'm especially giddy to know that I've encompassed a reader to believing the story, even if it had a bit of AU in it. About that section that you mentioned, yes, I'm going to go back and edit that. Tenses are thine enemies >.>

Thank you so much, Tina! I'm really happy that you liked the story as a whole, and thank you for reading and reviewing! I hope that this time, you'd be more open to D/A now since there are many amazing stories in that category :)
