Bahaha! I was dying laughing when I read about the pre-exam craziness. Fighting over a loaf of bread and some peanut butter... Hilarious! Report Review

AMAZING! ABSOLUTLEY LUVED IT!1MY FAV STORY!YOU ARE A GENIUS! BY THE WAY MY STORY IS NOT AS GOOD AS YOURS AND HASNT BEEN POSTED YET BUT SOON IT WILL AND IF YOU WANT TO READ IT GO AHEAD!Author's Response: Thanks. Glad you enjoyed it. Report Review
I had to respond to "I'm beginning to wonder if my writing really stinks because so many people have stopped."
Hell no! I realize I probably came to this party late -- I try to read only completed fics because I hate, hate, hate it when I am enjoying a fic and then find out it's orphaned or probably so because it is incomplete & the last update was 2009.
I spent most of my weekend reading Year 1, and now I'm reading Year 2. That should tell you something.
Most OFCs are MarySues. Kerri is NOT. You've departed from canon & paired Remus with an OFC. What a set up for MarySue-ism, but Kerri comes across as a character, warts and all. And you've managed another trick most HP fanfic writers can't manage -- you've written Snape as a human being without making him too good, too nice. He's mean, sarcastic, brave, concordant with the canonical character but with more depth than the JKR allowed her Snape.
I really think you could go pro. Seriously. I hope you still read reviews on previous works.Author's Response: Thanks for complimenting Kerri. At one time I visited the forum review threads and actually had people refuse to read my story because they thought Kerri sounded too cliche. One of them said that they were sick of Voldemort's daughter stories.
In Snape's case, I set out to try to show the side of him that we dont' see in canon. In canon, we only see what Harry sees, and obviously he's just a little prejudiced. (With reason). But Snape was one of the most noble and heroic characters in the series, if also very damaged. I wanted to show his good side here without watering him down.
I would like to write professionally one day. I do have an original story I am planning right now. Report Review
I'm not logged in at the moment, but this is still TOTALLY AWESOME! How many will you make? Will you do seven as well? I was just wondering, because that would be particularly sad. If you are going to answer, you will have to review one of my stories.Author's Response: Yes, I'm planning seven of them. Report Review
I think I've been reading this too often. I just had a dream about Hogwarts. (BTW I got an acceptance letter in Real Life.)Author's Response: Have you been to the Harry Potter attraction in Orlando? I live in Florida (luckily) and got to go. I was really fun. Report Review

Great start to what is going to be a great sequel!
I have a lot of catching up do though to get to the fourth story :)
strawberrydarhlingAuthor's Response: Thanks.
Well, no rush. It takes me a year to finish a story so you ought to be caught up by then. Report Review
Thank you! I knew he'd come around, well I hoped. The title of the story suggests that he did but that could be a ploy. Anyway, I'm glad he's agreeing to help. He'll understand what's going on w/ her better than most. Great job!Author's Response: Eventually he always comes around. I like happy endings, not sad ones. (As far as I'm concerned, the Harry Potter series had a sad ending. I'd rather she killed Harry than Remus). Report Review
Ok, my heart is now in about a billion tiny pieces...tears in my eyes. You are very good at pulling on emotional heart strings with your writing. I love your writing and this story. I'm just hoping they make up soon.Author's Response: Wait until the conclusion of year 3 which I'm writing right now. I think that half of my readers are going to hate me. Report Review
I love it! He is so sweet with her. I love it!Author's Response: This was one of my favorite chapters too. Report Review
Your writing does NOT stink. I think you write fabulously, and it's nice to read a story that's spelled properly!Author's Response: Thanks.
My spelling is better than the average around here because I'm older than average for this site. I'll be thirty in a few months. Report Review
I was sobbing at the end! It's so good! 100 out of 10 if I could!Author's Response: Wow thanks. I think this is the first time anyone has told me that the story has brought them to tears. Report Review
I've finished the second one! Again it's an incredibly written amazing story! I don't think it'll take long for Snape to, if not forgive Kerri, at least start talking to her again. Despite what she thinks I'm sure he really did and does care a whole lot for her and that is what will make him lighten up, if only a little. I don't think he'll ever like Remus. I can't wait to start reading the next story!Author's Response: Thanks
Well...it will take a while for Kerri and Snape to become friends again. Year three is pretty much one big feud with Remus stuck in the middle. I plan for them to reconcile in year 4. Kerri will notice "Moody" being nasty to Snape and get angry about it. Report Review
Meet the parents? I tremble with anticipation.Author's Response: I guess a double post is better than when people try to review and the things don't post at all. Report Review
Meet the parents? I tremble with anticipation.Author's Response: Yes, I got curious about Remus's family and decided to probe that part of his life. We have hardly any mention of his parents in canon. Report Review
Verry good Job! I love this very realistic oc, and Remus' behavior is so accurate!Author's Response: Usually when the reviews malfunction, it makes them disappear. I've never seen them allow a double post before. That's weird. Report Review
Verry good Job! I love this very realistic oc, and Remus' behavior is so accurate!Author's Response: Thanks.
Remus is my favorite character so I really do try hard to keep him in character. Kerri has been amazingly popular considering that she's a "Voldemort's daughter" which is considered a cliche around here. Report Review
I LOVE your stories! I can't believe this is the first review I've left so far... terrible me! I read the first part and now i'm on to this one in the last two days! It has SUCKED ME IN! I absolutely how accurate you are of is happening to harry in the 1st and 2nd year so far! its amazing! ... i want to read the books again and watch the movies hahaha!!!
I love your character of Kerri, she's really unique and I love how real she feels you developed her very well. Great Job! Keep up the good work! :)Author's Response: Thanks.
The reason I can stick to the canon timeline so accurately is because I copy them off of the Harry Potter lexicon and then add my own events to them week by week. Then those timelines work almost like outlines that I follow. Usually I do the first half of the year separately from the second one, because some things may change in that length of time. I need to start the second part of the 1993-1994 timeline very soon.
I was very proud to win the Best OC Dobby Award for Kerri. Some people in the review threads have outright turned my review requests down in the past because "Voldemort's daughter stories are too cliche." They would never even give me a chance. Winning that particular award was extremely gratifying for me. Report Review
cool chapters going. Time for some actionAuthor's Response: I think that these chapters where Kerri is at home bore people a little but I'm trying to develop her mother's personality more. I have an important job for her to do in year seven and some of my readers outright dislike her, which was never my intention. Report Review
