Beneath the Trees by andharrywokeup

Rated: R12+ • 4 Reviews starstarstarstarhalf-star
Summary: They all laughed now, for it was all they could do. The journey ahead was bound to be full of blood and tears and the funeral they had just left had been draining, but they were together now and it would be the cherished moments of smiles that would keep them going and eventually get them out of this. A time of peace beneath the trees.

terrific, 'what if' story

it always amazes me to read a story that could have been part of the series.

this short little jaunt around the lake may have been in JK's notes and was just edited out because of the length of DH.

the addition of the future story line just made it more believable.


A Boy, his Wife to be and his Mistress by Elena

Rated: MA18+ • 3 Reviews starstarstarstarhalf-star

Fabulous Banner by Violet at SAYS *huggle* Sometimes in life, the wrong thing to do can seem so right. There is no justification with cheating in a relationship, yet it happens for reasons that can't be explained. Here is one story that puts characters in this situation.

Reviewer: granpa harry Signed starstarstarstarhalf-star
Date: 01/08/13 Title: Chapter 1: A Boy, his Wife to be and his Mistress

Is it possible to like and hate a story. I think you hit the nail right on the head with this one. So many times people think that relationships are fully gratifying.

But a good relationship takes you away to a place you want to be.

You cannot live yuor whole life in the sun light. There has to be darkness now and then.

But I am not sure how Draco would feel if it was Pansy who was finding gratification in someone else's arms.

Hermione and Blaize, Never saw this one coming

and the Gargoyle is a nice twist. the two of them will be able to get in a lot of trouble, in Malfoy Manor, chaing after it.

I think I have the next chapter hiding around somewhere. I'll have a look.

Thanks for taking the time to read and review. It gave me a kick to get back here ;)

The Moment Things Start to Happen by DesDiamondS

Summary: The Moment Things Start to Happen
(banner by Marauder by Night)

There is a moment where things start to shift and fall into place. No matter how perfect or tragic they always find themselves in this moment. Things will never be the same.
Reviewer: granpa harry Signed starstarstarstarstar
Date: 30/07/13 Title: Chapter 1: The Moment Things Start to Happen

Excellently written, 

you are so correct that every Dramione has never explained how they have gotten together.


I really enjoyed and will look forward to reading some of your other work.

Early One Morning by x-happygirl

Not sure about the tonsil hockey at the end, but that gave it a little flavor, I guess

Date: 15/01/11 Title: Chapter 1: Sleep Does Me No Good

Very good story. I would like to thank Elena for allowing you to post it.

I would say that the thought Catherine had in your story, was more of a wish than an actual event.

You are correct. who did this is not as important as the fact that it was done.

Really enjoyble.    

Matters of Blood and Connection by The Deep End

It was very gracefully done.

I enjoyed the story.

I will try to read more of your work, soon



Author's Response: Thank you! I appreciate your review. This was one of my first one shots that came to me after reading an interview with JKR. She said that George and Angelina had a broken relationship, but they were broken together. I thought of this, though it isn't very canon, and had to write it down.

Another Day at the Dursleys by Jessi

Rated: GA • 3 Reviews starstarstar
Summary: Written in response to Bella's 'Your least favourite character' challenge on SAYS. Vernon Dursley turns a bad situation into a good situation - for himself, of course.
Reviewer: granpa harry Signed starstarstar
Date: 21/01/13 Title: Chapter 1: One

sort of a nice story.

But you made Vernon look so good in this one.

I was half expecting him to go up stairs and tell Dudley that he would let him go but it Petunia who wouldn't allow it.


Perhaps not... by Holly Ilex

Rated: R12+ • 10 Reviews starstarstarstarhalf-star

What happened to Severus when he died?
What did he see?
Who was there to greet him?
This is my take on the immediate aftermath of his death.

Reviewer: granpa harry Signed starstarstarstar
Date: 09/07/10 Title: Chapter 1: Perhaps not...

Amazing story.

I think alot about what some believe is the time after death.

Although I feel that for myself there is no one I wish to meet from my past. I can see why others would want to surround themselves with people of the same interest, familiars, I would call them.

Very good story, as you can tell by some of my work I really don't try to follow too much of JK's timeline or story. I believe with all great stories, they change every time they are read or told.



Author's Response:

Well, I wanted to show that ( as far as I'M concerned ) everything will be fine when we get to where we're going, all will be forgiven, apologies givena and taken, graciously, and it'll be a bit of a laugh, too . . . onward!

Thanks for the review!

That day in Diagon Alley by Holly Ilex

Rated: R12+ • 6 Reviews starstarstarstarhalf-star

This is a one shot about the accidental meeting of Christopher Jones and Severus Snape, and the bitter-sweet outcome.  It is mentioned, in passing, in my story, “What Goes Around…Comes Around…Lost and Found…Love.”

Reviewer: granpa harry Signed
Date: 20/01/11 Title: Chapter 1: That day in Diagon Alley

Wonderful story.

Reminded me of before I dated my wife. We worked together in a factory.

I used to stand just out of sight of her as she walked past. Nowadays, I would be consodered a 'stalker'. But 30 years ago, it was Puppy Love.

We were married within a year. Sorry I am off topic.

Your story was terrific. I cannot wait to read another.


Author's Response:

Now that you've read "That day in Diagon Alley" you should start "What goes around . . .comes around . . lost and found . . love" This little one shot fits in there around chapter 5 and you'll be a step ahead as you'll know this "back  story".

Enjoy and I'll get back to your story tomorrow on my day off!

I really do enjoy stories of Severus as a good person

thanks for adding to my over flowing memories

Author's Response:

sorry I never responded - family matters ( Hubby's 2 back surgeries and a hip replacement - after falling off the bottom step of a ladder & breaking his leg bone! )

ANYWAY, I'm trying to get a new story submitted ( has to pass Rule#15 first ) and you'll love Severus in this one!!!

Thanks for your review . . . I do enjoy hearing from readers . . . does this old broad's heart good!!!

Final Hour by juls

Rated: R12+ • 5 Reviews starstarstarstarhalf-star
Summary: “Remember Harry, you have a power that Voldemort does not have. You have love. All these people here love you.” and he wrapped Harry into a big bear hug, and kissed the top of his head. “I am so proud of you.” Harry watched as the tired werewolf walked away, going to each group and offering them words of encouragement and advice.

I am not sure I cana gree with Harry's forgiving Draco,

Maybe its what in my past that would not have allowed it.

Albus Dumbledore's Death by juls

Rated: R12+ • 4 Reviews starstarstarstarhalf-star
Summary: Albus Dumbledore, Headmaster of Hogwarts Academy, was dead. The mentor of his childhood and the closest thing to a friend through out his adulthood was dead. Knowing that Albus would have been dead naturally sooner rather then later didn't help his pain. "A potion to stay the hand of death till my work here is complete." was all Dumbledore had asked for. It had been all Severus Snape had been able to give. Thanks Jessi_rose for beta reading.

Half Blood Prince Limericks by Holly Ilex

Rated: R15+ • 3 Reviews starstarstarstarhalf-star
Summary: After HBP came out, I kept getting little bits and pieces of the story stuck in my brain and the only way to get them out was to get them down on paper ( on the computer ) as limericks. I can't write poetry to save my soul, but limericks just seem to fall out of my brain with frightening regularilty.  So, here's my ramblings about HBP.

I could never have done these, although I am almost going to try a couple.

I Owe You My Life - A Wizardís Debt by Holly Ilex

Rated: GA • 6 Reviews starstarstarstarhalf-star


DISCLAIMER: This story is based on characters and situations created and owned by JK Rowling, various publishers including but not limited to Bloomsbury Books, Scholastic Books and Raincoast Books, and Warner Bros., Inc. No money is being made and no copyright or trademark infringement is intended.

The first line ( in bold type ) is from page 745 of the American version of J. K. Rowling's 7th book, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows"  The last line ( in bold type ) is from page 746.

This little passage always bothered me, so I went back and put in a little scene which I think adds to the whole post- battle scenerio.

Reviewer: granpa harry Signed
Date: 21/01/11 Title: Chapter 1: I Owe You My Life - A Wizardís Debt

You are correct, it seems, as usual.

I thought that DH was a little rushed during the entire time before the battle and after. It was as though JK had a deadline and 'Word Count' she wanted to stay within.

Don't get me wrong, it was terrific, but after 7+ years. it sort of just fell off the table at the end.



Author's Response:

AH, but that's where fan fiction comes into play!  WE make it all better!  Glad you liked this little bit and am also gald you agree!

Oh, and thansk for the review . . .I give out a lot of 'em but rarely receive any . . but that's okay, as long as there's a read count, I can live w/o the reviews.


Reviewer: granpa harry Signed starstarstarstar
Date: 19/09/14 Title: Chapter 1: I Owe You My Life - A Wizardís Debt

you are correct in feeling the JK let down her readers with the ending of DH.

the epilogue has bugged a lot of people, so I have noticed on web sites about the Potter series.


your short blurb is nearly perfect, myself, I would have only added Harry stopping the ministry Aurors taking the Malfoys into custody.



Author's Response:

Sorry I haven't responded . . . been away ( hubby's surgeries / life )  but I'm back and will clear up all unanswered reviews, starting here!

ANYWAY, I'm glad you like my little blurb . . .  but I think Harry probably did intervene on the Malfoy's behalf, once the dust cleared . . .  and the Ministry would have listened to ANYTHING he had to say. . . perhaps if the Malfoys did spend a short time in Azkaban, Harry's help would have meant that much more when it did arrive.

Am trying to get permission to post a new story ( admin is checking wether Rule #15 applies - we'll ) so keep an eye out, and then if it is posted, enjoy!

Coming Home by juls

Rated: MA18+ • 4 Reviews starstarstarstarhalf-star
Summary: Coming home for some was a struggle, and no less was it Charlie Weasley. The Final Battle had left him in a state confusion. Battle worn, he'd fled to back to his dragons to heal. Now, a few years later, Charlie returns for Harry and Ginny's wedding. Plus maybe to claim the girl he'd left behind? (My baby gift to Devoted Secrets)
