I am sending this message as a PM or review because one or more of your stories is in my favourites or alerts list here on and may be in danger of removal. I am sending this as a mass message so it may not apply to you, if so please ignore it, and I apologise for bothering you.
You may or may not be aware the the admins of this site are, after ten years of the policy being in place, finally adhering to there TOS agreement on explicit content. According to the TOS this includes material of a sexual or violent nature, or includes mature themes and can not be included in the ‘M’ rating.
Over the past week or so the admins have been removing stories that fall into this category, however their idea of explicit material is more in line to the 1950’s than 21st Century. There have been stories removed already which have only contained the word ‘sex’, or certain terms within their summaries that the admins deem inappropriate. While most of these stories were M rated, some could have fallen under a T rating or lower. It would not take much work for the admins to sit down and add an MA/NC-17 rating and age restriction.
It is easy to understand that some stories that contain, what is generally considered explicit material (sex scenes, torture, rape, abuse etc) are in breach of the sites TOS; but the admins have never policed this policy to the extent of the last week. They have given no warning of the removal, apart from a small piece in the news section on the home page that only reiterates the policy. As such many authors’ hard work has been lost forever.
It may have been many months or years since you have been on here, so I wanted to give fair warning to most of the authors on my list, so they can take precautions to make sure they still have their work. This has been the only way I could contact you, and hopefully, especially for you authors who have not been on for years, this still reaches you.
When I read a story and put it on my favourites or alerts list I download a PDF copy so that I can read it on my ebook reader. As such any of your on these lists, I have a PDF copy of, and can send you one if your story is unfortunate enough to be deleted. I should tell that this is only for stories on my lists and not for every story you may have written. It takes a lot of time to go through and download them, and I have only just got through the authors beginning with ‘B’.
You can risk reposting here, if you still want to them to be read, but there are several other sites you can try. You may already have them posted elsewhere as well.
To those of you looking to repost try the following sites (remove the brackets on any site addresses)
AO3 aka Archive of our Own - requires you to sign up and wait for invite before posting, long waiting list
hpfandom - they have an NC-17 rating for those who need it
‘ ’ - this is a relatively new site (opened in the last couple of weeks) that is very similar to ffnet, but has a MA (NC-17) rating for those who need it. It is not exclusively Harry Potter based either, and there are new categories added all the time. It’s a personal favourite of mine and many authors who have had stories removed.
If it has been so long since you have written or you are just not willing to repost yourself, but you still want you stories out there for the public to read; I can, with you permission, post them myself. It would be under my profile (queenguin) at ‘ ’, I am doing this for a few stories already, although they won’t be up for some time yet. You will be fully credited with ownership of the story, I will not claim any ownership, nor will I edit any material. I will only post if given your permission through a personal email or PM here or on ‘ ’. If you have other stories that I have not favourited but still want reposted send me a link or copy and I will do so. I usually deal exclusively with Harry Potter but I will post for any category.
If you are already aware of the purge, and have already decided to repost or remove you work, I apologise for wasting your time, you have probably been told countless times already and are probably now rather annoyed.
If you have any questions, want me to send you a back-up of your story, or tell me to bugger off because your already annoyed with me, you can send me a PM here or at ‘ ’, or email me at the address below.
I do hope this reaches some of the older authors who have been off here for years, it will be a shame for people not to be able to read your stories anymore - they were on my favourites for a reason.

Awesome story! :)

my very first SiriHarry and it didn't even bother me one bit hahah it was such a thrill reading this fic of yours and I sincerely enjoyed every single chapter of it. I have no regrets in stumbling upon this story of yours. Now, I am off to that other fic of yours.

I like the story idea, but do there need to be gay guys? I know it is your story, but sometimes the amount of gay stories on fanfiction makes me mad.
| slasher-round-the-keyboard chapter 17 . 1/19/2012
Please don't take this as a flame, because it's not intended to be one, but I felt this chapter is overly simplistic.
It seemed black and white in that you called the Death Eaters evil and made it sound as if any pain they feel is irrelevant. Crucio is the same no matter who casts it and I know Harry was just reflecting it on the caster, but the scene didn't sit well with me. I also felt it glorified battle and tied up too neatly with all the 'bad guys' punished.
I did like your reference to the Wild Hunt though.

Lucy and James propose. Snape offers to mate with Remus.

This is such a wonderful wonderful story. I love that you gave a reason for Wormtail's going to Riddle very few make a different reason other then "he was winning/so strong" I love that you had Harry change Lucius and Severus in that they were nolonger so cold. I haven't read all the books but have seen the movies and thought that Lucius did ultumitly relize that Riddle was crazy and Severus figured that out much sooner. I love that you had another Black in the house of the brave and Sirius caring about another cousin then Andy. Thank you for the new favorite.

this was really good )

very interesting take on a well known plot line.
| Angel Nat-Chan chapter 20 . 8/24/2011
I loved this story, the plot was amazing, and it was believable (as odd of a concept that is to apply to the HP universe). I have read many a time travel fic set in the Marauder era, and you created some truly unique twists. I am really glad you paired Harry with Sirius (I just can't see Harry straight, and NEVER with Ginny - eww). Brilliant fic, I truly enjoyed it and couldn't wait to read the next chapter the moment after I finished each one. The only critique I could make would be a trivial one over the use of 'anecdote' rather than 'antidote', and at least you were consistent with it in the few paragraphs it was used. I truly enjoyed this fic, a brilliant piece of work.

I must admit, at first I was hesitant to read this story due to the slash between harry and Sirius but I told myself to suck it up. So glad I did cuz I am truley honored to have read such an amazing story. The stuggles of love and discovering yourself made this an epic story. Hope there's a sequel
| Fawn-Rowan chapter 20 . 7/29/2011
This was a really good story! A weird idea but you presented it well and I felt that it could actually be true! It almost feels as if J.K. Wrote this herself because only she would have this many twists and turns!

I haven't read a time traveling story in a long time. Being a brief pull back into the fold I must say it was a very enjoyable ride. I am curious though, did you ever have the urge, after completing, to write more?
It was a great story and had some interesting ideas involved but I'm very curious now at... what your vision of this world is like with the new Harry. I feel the ending point was good for this story but by ending it you also opened up a door for a sequel that could be very interesting. The relationship between Harry and those around him. Learning about life after his trip back in time, see the new characters briefly introduced, maybe even just talk about Harry's finale year to graduation from Hogwarts in this new world.
It wouldn't be as action packed as the last story but it would be very interesting I feel to explore more of this world and the romance and lives that this changed timeline brings.
If you don't write anything I would like to congratulate you on a piece of fiction that lasted the test of time and is still fantastic in 2011.
