You should write professionally. Report Review
I absolutely love all of your stories and can't stop reading them once I start. They are so well written, no bad grammer to distract from the writing, and amazing word choice--I can practically see the dragons.
Fun fact though: the Gensis was written a long, long time ago and is credited to Moses who live way before Jesus. The official canon of the Christian Bible wasn't compiled until a few centuries after Jesus but many, most I think if not all, of the New Testament books were written in the 1st and 2nd centuary which I think is what you're thinking of. The Old Testament is the Scriptures from the Jews with the exception of the few books they took out when the split between Judaism and Christianity happened. Report Review
aww what a sweet story, can't wait to read more.Author's Response: There's plenty more to read in this series. All the short fics plus Some Good Guys Wear Black and its sequel Someone to Watch Over Me. Report Review
ohh i can't wait to read what happens next, i am glad that they have come to the call for help.Author's Response: See, the dragons never forget a debt and they owe Arista and Sev and Drake a big one. Good thing too! Report Review
Loved the story but then again so far i have loved all of your stories, just waiting for you to finish the return to story.
keep writing you are brilliant
blessed beAuthor's Response: Aww thanks! I'm working on that next. Report Review
Now this one's a beauty! Everything was summed up with his work and effort... I love that Amelia came! (Nothing could really hold her back, right? ^_^) 10/10, old friend, for reading this was an adventure I'll never forget. =D
Good luck on your writing travels, by the way! *huggle*
~Meli♥Author's Response: She did and nothing would ever stop her. Glad you liked it and I have Some Good Guys Wear Black posted if you want to read that one or some of my other ones. Report Review
Nothing to say except: great chapter! The death of Albus Dumbledore will never be forgotten on all of us readers, will it? Goodness, the ending's almost here! *beam* =]
~Meli♥Author's Response: Nope, even if he dies more peacefully then he ever did in canon. Yes, and what an ending it is. Report Review
The random Vampire was hillarious! But I'm so glad that Arista is back! lol - May Draco find peace in his mind if he's going to hear Kit and Scout's singing... *giggles* =D It was great to see the SR's once more, and it would be awesome to see all the pairings out in the open when the end is read... (Well, when I read the ending ;D)
~Meli♥Author's Response: It was just waiting there, LOL!
Not very likely, it might just drive him over the edge.
Oh yes, everything will be wrapped up at the end. Report Review
Great fight there! I loved it, despite the fact that some of the offenses were kinda... off for Severus and Lucius... ;] But the fight was still awesome though (Animagus forms and all!)! And I must read on because I have no idea how Arista will come back... :( *sniffsniff*
~Meli♥Author's Response: I invented spells for that battle, I wanted Sev to really nail Lucius since he is a Defense Master and knows lots of unusual combat spells. I also like the idea of shapeshifters battling.
Yeah, Arista needs to get help. Report Review
I loved it!!! I went from quiet weeping to outright sobbing (with happiness). That was a wonderful and brilliant ending. I still wish there was some way to comment in the margins. I have such a myriad of comments and feelings as I'm reading--then I forget when I come to the end. I guess if I wasn't so lazy then I'd comment on paper and put it all in at the end. But I'm lazy and caught up in the reading. Off to my next book--I think Marietta's Christmas Carol.Author's Response: You could do that, if you really wanted. I think it's great that you have so much to say about these fics I'm writing. It's very touching.
Please do read it, for some odd reason I haven't gotten reviews on it yet and it's been there awhile. Unless they got erased?? Report Review
Wow--that was amazing. If I thought I was crying before, I'm really crying now. I was sorry to see Dumbledore go but you can't let everyone live. This was a good chapter.Author's Response: Yeah I wanted to show a different ending to this than Snape killing him. I also wanted to show that even Arista has limits. Report Review
I'm openly weeping and clapping. This was too wonderful. Is this the end of your Arista series? If it is, then it's a very fitting end. If not, then I look forward to Severus' and Amelia's grandchildren. Won't the bronze dragons be excited. I say this because I know I only have a couple of chapters to go and then on to another of your adventures.Author's Response: No, it's not. Not really. There will be more adventures for Sev in America and maybe he'll even get to be a grandfather soon! Report Review
Whoa--that was very dramatic!! I loved it. Now we're rid of Lucius and Cissy. I almost feel kind of calm now. Your writing has so much power.Author's Response: yes, I felt they needed to go down in a big way. Glad you liked it. Report Review
Well if I thought the last chapter was exciting this one is even more so. I had almost forgotten about Mel and her unique powers. That's what you do well. You take us to a point of no return and then wham!!! You bring back something we forgot about.
By the way, how did Severus get the Maurader's (sp?) map? Did I miss something?Author's Response: Great! See, her powers really will turn the tide of battle. A ghostwalker is nothing to mess with.
He got it from Harry, I kind of forgot to mention that. Report Review
This was a brilliant chapter--one of your very best. I was caught between trembling, crying, cheering--intense feelings of pride. I can't believe anyone thought Severus would fall for Draco's apology. Again, I can see the movie in my head. And, I'm jealous--none of my writing is this exciting, although maybe it should be. My school might get more grants that way:)Author's Response: Really? I'm honored. And I agree, Lucius has always underestimated Severus, in every way possible. He'll regret it. Report Review
Well, I just loved this chapter. Of all things to think of, of course it was obvious to ask the bronze dragons to help--but I sure didn't think of it. This was too exciting. It was great to see the American Hunters again, as well. And, might romance bloom for Trish?Author's Response: Oh yes. Can't leave Trish out.
i wanted to have the bronze dragons return to fulfill their debt and this just seemed to fit the best. They make awesome allies. Report Review
Well, that was certainly a cliff hanger. Fortunately it came along though--I had to go to the bathroom and I wanted to finish reading first. Once I start reading, especially your work, I don't want to stop. I can't wait to see what happens next. I hope the students are prepared.
It sounds like I should've read Marietta's Christmas Carol a couple of weeks ago. Oh well, I'll catch up in a little bit.Author's Response: Aww thanks! I'm glad you're enjoying this so much! And there's more to come! Report Review
I can really sympathize with Severus using a cane. I use a walker and a cane right now. I hate using the walker but sometimes I'm a little wobbly with the cane. I keep telling myself it's not forever.
At the moment I'm kind of leaning toward liking this version better than the official HBP. Harry and Severus had an honest conversation over what happened--I think Harry learned his lesson over sectumsempra and he now knows who the half-blood prince is. And, Severus has been warned again about hanging out with the Malfoys.Author's Response: My mom used to use a cane and a walker too, before her PD got so bad that she couldn't use either and now is in a wheelchair.
I wanted this version to represent what might have been if Harry had trusted Severus and made an effort to learn what Severus taught and vice versa. Harry did learn his lesson about using unfamiliar magic and Severus will not be trusting Draco any time soon. Report Review
I'm so excited for Arista and Drake. The conversation between Severus and Harry went very well. You know what's interesting about this, is that in JKR's work everything's from Harry's viewpoint but when you think about it there were a lot of other people around--and you present that different viewpoint.Author's Response: They really do deserve each other. Yes, that's so and sometimes by focusing on just one character, you miss giving the others in the story their due. I like presenting other viewpoints, it adds depth to the story and to the characters. Report Review
Whoa--that was pretty exciting. Thank God, Arista didn't give up. I was wondering, have you written any books where Sev becomes a grandfather? Wouldn't that be cool?Author's Response: Arista is as stubborn as both her parents and she doesn;t give up easily. Good thing too. yes, I am heading in that direction with this series. After you read Marietta's Christmas Carol, read Some Good Guys Wear Black, which features a grown Harry and Sev teaming up to rescue Ginny. Report Review
Once again, I was on the edge of my seat--hoping and praying that Severus would be OK--or at least alive. You sure know how to generate excitement.Author's Response: Alive yes, but he's in a bad way. Well, it's an exciting time in the book so I can't resist making these cliffies. Report Review
Aww!! I loved it. Doesn't it seem like wizards fall in love at a very young age? And, when they fall they fall hard--no fooling around. I never thought at the beginning of this series that Arista would end up with Drake.Author's Response: Yes, but for a soulbonded pair that's a given. It's like nothing you've ever experienced and never will again. And it's permanent. I like to surprise my readers, some of them thought she'd end up with Harry but that's been too overdone. besides, I love Drake and think he makes a great match for her. Report Review
