The Reviews Lounge

We've decided to separate out the personal review requests from the recommendations for our archive, since it's hard to keep track of what's what in our current topic, and respitechristopher made an excellent point: if you've just posted a story, you're NOT immediately going to get 20 reviews in your inbox - It takes time! So of course new stories are under-reviewed. If you want some attention for them, mention them here please!!

(Of course, if they're appropriate to our purposes we'll archive them anyway, but please help keep life easy for us!)

Cuba, Lexie, Sadie & the staff


Here's a template to follow if you'd like to request a review for your story. Please use it! :

Title: Violent Antipathies

Length: Right now, it has one chapter but will be projected novel-length.

How long has it been posted? : August 24th 08

How many reviews does it have?: 1

Characters: In first chapter- Hermione Granger, Harry, and McGonagall In the second chapter....well, you and Hermione will see...

Summary: It is shortly after Ron has gotten together with Lav-Lav, and Hermione feels utterly alone. Sure, there's Harry, but he has Quidditch and a budding infatuation with Ginny, so she busies herself with her schoolwork. McGonagall has a pupil who is falling very behind when he normally is the number two student (after Hermione). Sure, he could just be skiving off, but McGonagall suspects it's something much more...and asks Hermione to tutor him. The catch? The student is none other than everybody's favorite Slytherin... Will Hermione be able to teach him anything? Why is he falling behind? And will Ron and Lavender ever stop snogging?

To link you go to copy the text you want to put the link on, and at the top tool bar the small chain next to the "styles" will be clickable. Click it and fill out the popup and then click the "Insert" button on the left. Simple as that!

SCV haz a question for Queen Ice Cubes, Ruler of the RL.

When a story has enough reviews, where do we post the fact that it's ready to graduate and that either you or the person who added the story to the archive needs to remove it?

Cuban Sombrero Gal

Well, usually staff members just do a check of the archive every few weeks, but if you want... just post it in the Archive Awareness topic, I guess.

Title: Haunted

Length/Chapters: 2,179

How long has it been posted?: Since July 4th.

How many reviews does it have?: 7

Characters/pairings: Snape, Lily (sort of) and Harry. Technically, there are no pairings, but there's some sort of interaction between Snape and Lily.

Summary: Snape attempts to come to grips with why he is always uncomfortable around Harry. Unofficial description: It is set during Harry's third year and rated M, but not obscene (at least to me). This story is my attempt at getting inside Snape's head, taking into account what Harry learned about his feelings towards Lily at the end of the last book.

I'm completely new to forums so I'm not sure if this will work... ehhhh... This seemed like the most respectable forum, so I decided to go for it.

Title: Difficult Circumstances

Length/Chapters: Prologue + 3

How long has it been posted?: Since July

How many reviews does it have?: Only 7 :(

Characters/pairings: Draco Malfoy/Charlie Weasley

Summary: It's a werewolf!Draco fic. He's been infected with lycanthropy, and ends up killing someone, everyone knows about it. So his parents send him away to Romania because of the different benefits etc... and he ends up living with Charlie Weasley, they fall in love. Drama, h/c, and I attempted some humor.

I'm looking at the screen, and it sounds really implausible and cheesy. I know it does. But the story nagged away in my brain until I decide to go for it, and I wanted to make it as believable and real as possible, and I think I did an OK job of it. Shameless self-promotion, yes.

Title: Love, Hate and Revenge

Characters/pairings: James/Lily, Sirius/OC, Remus/OC

Summary: Dumbledore's inexplicably made James head boy, and Lily's not happy. But she's not the only one with love troubles. Things might not end happily for everyone, but what you can expect this year is a lot of love, hate and revenge.


I originally wrote it a year ago, so the writing as good as my more recent fic, but I like the story and I'm fond of it anyway. Please don't be put off by the OCs, I tried my best to make them interesting characters, and neither of them are anything like me I promise!

Title: Rakumata Rising

Length/Chapters: +17,000 words, 6 Chapters.

How long has it been posted?: A few days.

How many reviews does it have?: 2

Characters/pairings: I don’t use the original Characters very much, since the events of the book are based in Egypt.

Summary: In this fic, I have taken what JKR made, and gave it my own twist. There is a new Prophecy, and this one is more cryptic the last. In Ancient Egypt, there were two brothers who had never met. One was Rakumata, the youngest. He was a deeply Dark Wizard who wanted nothing but power, and had it, too! Well, Zakar, his older brother, who only three people knew about, came back to Egypt after about two centuries of Rakumata’s reign of terror. They had two Duels. Zakar was testing his little brother in the first, but he dominated him the second and it was the second that restored three thousand years of peace to the Land of the Nile. Now, three thousand years later, it is almost the anniversary of the Banishment Zakar performed, and at the precise moment it has been three thousand years, both of the two Dahtre brothers will awaken. This time, however, Zakar can’t stop Rakumata. Rakumata, for some reason, didn’t completely sleep during his Banishment. His mind remained awake, thinking. The more he thought the smarter and more powerful he became.

It is now up to Queen Alana Dahtre to ready her son, Imhosepto XXXXXXVIII to face Rakumata in a battle that will decide the fate of the throne, which Rakumata, legally, still holds, now that he is back. However, Imhosepto is only 11 years old, and nowhere near ready to face the Greatest Dark Wizard of all time. Throughout the series, Imhosepto will become stronger and stronger, and by the last book, will be ready to face his ancestral Uncle, Rakumata Dahtre. Also, during their slumber, Rakumata and Zakar have become Egyptian Demigods and are both legends that helped shaped Wizarding Egypt. The group the Prophecy calls the ‘TriForce’ will, of course, be Imhosepto, Virginya, and her cousin Draco.
