please continue writing this story! I love your style of writing and it would break my heart if you didn't finish 6th year. I would go as far to say that I loved this story more than HBP. Anyway, Arabella seems to have stopped writing Hermione Grangers Diary, Year 6, so I have nothing else to read.

For those of you who are still interested in this story, I do have a bit of chapter 20 written and I intend to finish it shortly. I wrote three pages straight on the day of HBP's release in an attempt to write as much as I could before reading HBP. Oddly those three pages have more similarities to Book 6 than the rest of the story. So anyways, there is an update forthcoming. After Ch. 20 however, the future is a bit less certain. HBP took away some of my HP enthusiasm and it's hard for me to contemplate and write about an alternative 6th year knowing what actually happens. I already have story ideas and a partially written one-shot for 7th year. No more entire school year fics from me though, only one-shots or short fics.

I just got around to reading you aurthor's note for chapter 19. There are those of us who have invested a lot of time reading the first 19 chapters, and I for one would like to read the story to its end AU or Cannon. It fits the theory of difergant universes.

I'm just getting back to reading fanfic, after a little break, for HBP. It doesn't bother me reading pre-HBP, or even pre-OotP, fanfic...

Snape is as usual horrible, but Ramsey is a really interesting character, although I wonder what that flash of memory that Harry saw is? Is it actually Lily? And what does Ramsey have to do with Lily? (After finishing I now see what was up with Ramsey, Interesting).

I really like what their doing with the DA, and with the Slytherins, too bad it didn't turn out like that in canon. I really liked the DA. It was one of my favorite parts.

----"Felix Felicis!" Ginny said to the Fat Lady's portrait.----

Great Chapter. And if this is it for the story, than this was a great story and a really enjoyable read. Thanks Again.

I have just completed reading chapter 19. It ultimately does not make any diference whether the story is orisnot in cannon. Since the story is well written and interesting, you should complete it.

Well, that was a very nice final chapter. It doesn't really round off the story, of course, but that doesn't matter much. It entertained me, the whole story did, which was exactly your intent. Besides, due to the long waits between the chapters I've forgotten all plot points I was eager to hear more about. So I'm feeling rather satisfied about the story.

Thank you for writing this and keeping us entertained. I have truly loved this story, and I now feel quite happy to let it go and have HBP instead. Thank you!

Reviewid: 126920Chapter: 19
The whole Hermione's logic for not telling on Draco is so horribly bad that I cant bealieve it comes fomr her. Plus since when did Harry need her permission to do anything? They should tell on him so that he can be watched not punished. DD would do that, and woudl be unlikley to care that they waled around the edge of the forest and were attracted a short way in while looking for Hagrid.

In any event this is been one of the more fun book 6 fics to read and I do hope that you concider finishing it even when it becomes AU. THough you cna take a break if you like most people avoid fanfic for a while after a new book comes out anyway. I suspect that the H/R and H/G will be in book 6 (Well the H/R anyway) though I suspect that Krum will have nothign to do with percipitating it. JKR used that plot device already. But then I guess we will know this saturday!

I know you have reservations about continuing this story as AU, but you've really spent so much time, and it is very good. I think, if you can, you should read HBP, maybe get some plot bunnies and keep going. I'm not sure I'd be able to do that in your position, but you've really done so much, and it's of such great quality, it seems a shame to let it go.

Dear Quillers,

I made an error in my author's notes as you may have noticed. I should have written that I would post the additional scenes in my livejournal by July 15th (not June). It's hard to think that it's July already, the summer has flown by for me.

I also wanted to say that my author's note was not meant to indicate by any stretch of the imagination that I was fully intent on not completing "Revelations", merely that I'm unsure how reading HBP will affect my storylines and desire to continue. For example, should there be some unexpected death, I would feel odd about writing that character.

For the time being, I'm trying to write as much as I can of Chapter 20 just in case I can sneak it in somehow (very unlikely though as I only have about a page so far). I've already received a few reviews requesting me to continue even as an AU fic, which is very flattering. However, I don't believe the Sugar Quill has decided yet whether they will even allow AU 6th year fics to continue post HBP, so we shall have to wait and see. And I really do want all of you to enjoy HBP and not worry about this fic. What J.K. will give us will be so much better than anything that can come from my poor brain. This story is just a narrative form of my theories and with any hope, most of them will be proven or disproven in a few days.

Gryfny recommended your story in the forum so first I should thank him/her! I like the way your story develops with all of them quite in character and many mysterious hints - by the way I wonder about Ramsey first name, there was some bell ringing in my head during the last chapters... I think Harry could get many answers to his questions about his teacher from a very reliable contemporary witness, couldn't he? However I don't understand why he doesn't show more interest in his gift. I hope you might update soon!
Thanks for that great sixth year fic,

We're still in the dark about Prof Ramsey, curiosity is killing me, but apparently they've got more important things to worry about.

So they killed the small animals for fun or to poison buckbeack? An excellent chapter. The Quidditch trials were great.
(It's to bad you missed JK's update by two days, the beater situation is slightly wrong.)

And A Griphorn for a pet what next? :D

...I know Lupin said there is something Dumbledore doens't know, but I still believe as I said before he must have a reason to trust him, and not, no reasons to distrut him.

As usual everybody is completely in character, which makes this story so great to read. And I think it's great that Hermoine is going to try to become friends with a Slytherin, who knows what will come out of it. And while it must have been hard I guess Harry must have felt relieved to tell it over, though I wonder what Ginny will have to say...

Reviewer: GryfnyDate: 2005-04-15
Reviewid: 119670Chapter: 16
An excellent chapter. The classes are very interesting to read about. And I like the idea behind original charms. I'm slightly confused about buckbeak. Very probaly I'm forgettin something from earlier chapters, but how is Hagrid allowed to have Buckbeak, is it there agains the ministry's wishes, or am I forgetting something?

I very much enjoy Ramsey as a character, he seems like an interesting fellow. I wonder what the reasons are behind Remus not trusting him. And in effect unlike Dumbledore, because while Dumbledore has had teachers that were not on the good side before, for DADA, still the fact that Dumbledore has him teaching Harry Occlumency, an art that because he's teaching him would mean that some of Harry's thoughts are vulnerable to him, including perhaps even the prophesy which makes me reason that Dumbledore really trusts him.

A really excellent chapter.

"He swung open the Fat Lady's portrait hastily, causing her to screech in indignation.

"NO RUNNING IN THE CORRIDORS!" she shouted after him."

I enjoyed the picture of the fat lady screaming like that.

"Honestly," Hermione said with disgust, "Have none of you paid even the slightest attention in History of Magic?"
So typical Hermoine, and I like the idea of a magiventrus.

I very much enjoyed the defense classes and I like reading about hands on defence, one of the reasons why I liked reading about the DA so much.

And I exremly liked the way you ended off the chapter.
I wonder how she found out?
" the way, Harry," she smirked, "thanks for the broom. I owe you."

Reviewid: 119379Chapter: 18
Hmmm... interesting.... very mysterious. I don't think I've been able to keep track of all the mysteries and hints in this story, and now you've added another one! Oh well. It keeps things intriguing. ;-)

Great chapter, by the way. I love it especially that there weren't just exactly three good Chasers and two good Beaters. You made me wondering what they would do, and I definitely hadn't expected the Beater/Chaser switch. I would have liked to see how those two reacted to that... but you had more important things to keep us busy with.

By the way, I don't think Quidditch players would be disqualified for hurling the Quaffle into the Keeper's chest. Quidditch seems to be a rather rough game, and people end up with broken bones (though usually because of the Bludger) all the time. I don't think someone would be disqualified for throwing the Quaffle too hard and accidentally breaking a few bones of the Keeper.

But that's not really important. Your chapter is great anyway. I would also like to award you the Most In-Character Character of the Day Award for Hagrid. Grawpy's new pet ... *faints*

Actually I followed J.K.'s rhyme and meter precisely for the sorting hat song. And I analyzed each of her sorting hat songs for content before I wrote it, so it keeps the overriding patterns. Each sorting hat song however differs slightly in pattern and has a different number of stanzas, so there isn't really a strict rule about that other than that the sorting hat has to describe its duties and the attributes of each house, so I believe I followed in J.K.'s style fairly well. The obvious difference is that the Sorting Hat gets a bit more involved this time, which seemed appropriate considering that the situation in the wizarding world has become even more desperate than the previous year.

Now you asked how did the Sorting Hat know all of that? Well, it does reside in Dumbledore's Office and would have overheard the prophecy there last June, wouldn't it? And besides, it's magic of course! Thanks for your reviews and your questions.

To everyone,

I uploaded chapter 18 on Monday, April 4th, so I expect it to show up in the next upload. Considering that a week has passed since the last uploads were done, I expect that it will appear very soon.

In my last review I meant, how did they know that Hermoine was going to be in DA, not Harry.

I see I guessed wrong about the Polyjuice Potion, I assume that Harry and DD both believe that it was Voldemort possesing Oliver.

Typical Hermoine.
-"Well, you're going to whether you want to or not and the first thing we're going to learn is how to block the Imperius curse," Hermione said forcefully with a determined look in her eye. "And not just in theory this time, but in practice."-

"It seems that Potter must have a greater appreciation for Defense Against the Dark Arts than History of Magic."
I liked this line from the diary.

And about Umbridge I don't belive that she is a DE. She is very evil and evil enough to be a DE, but not every evil person is a DE, like (DD?) explained in book five.

When you have Ginny telling Harry about the broom I kind of guessed that you were going to have Harry by a broom for her. And I'm happy I was right.

I like the fact that they let Harry go to Diagon Alley, so he can get out, it's too bad he got attacked. On that note how did the Death Eaters know that he was going to be in a Diagon Alley.

I also wonder who this "Oliver" is, I would probally assume that it's somebody in Poly Juice potion, though I have no idea why they would pick Oliver. Although I'm probally wrong.

Great chapter! I really shared Harry's relief when he talked to Hermione and really brought the reader into his head & heart during that scene. It all rang very true, too, in the way he called them back and felt that dread of 'what have I started?' - we've all been through something like that, haven't we?

Looking forward to the next chapter! This story is such a great read!

The birthday party was amazing. The magical CD, F&G's stuff etc. And I really like the OotP pendix, so that's how they contact each other.
(Though according to Jo's website and I know the information came out long after this was up, they contac each other through some kind of something, which according to the hint Jo gave many people think "the patronus.)

I doubt your going to change it, and it's not a big deal. But you put in an extra "i" in "his".

I really love the story, and both the pace of events and characterization is very believable.

A bit too believable, lol. I can understand why Harry wouldn't want to tell Ginny (and I suspect Ginny would understand too), and I think it's very keeping with canon. But given her support of Harry throughout OotP and over the summer, they treated her horribly, IMO. It's none of your business, go away? If I were Ginny, I'd take their advice. Nice to know that they value her friendship so much that they can't even be bothered to be polite (well, Hermione did try...).

I'm extremely curious where you're going with the Veil, and the person going through and coming back. I look forward to your next update. Hopefully, you'll have another chapter up soon.

Great story. I wish I had found this sooner. You have a very realistic portrayal of life with the Dursleys. I'm happy that Harry continued the Occlumency lessons. And the OWL results that you gave were similar to the ones I had imagined him getting. Though I probally would have given him the "O" for charms instead of Transfiguration.

Just noticed your reply to my review of chapter 16 and your new author's note of that chapter. :-) I think it makes sense to learn more than just human transfiguration at NEWT level. It would be a bit boring to do the same thing for two years, wouldn't it?

Lovely chapter! I've missed this story so much, and when I saw your name on the update list I could hardly believe my eyes, so my expectations of this chapter were pretty high, but it didn't disappoint.

I've been reading too many not-so-brilliant stories lately; that much is obvious. I had forgotten about your engaging writing, your fascinating plot, and your perfect characterisation of the trio. When I was reading this chapter, I thought that it was your best chapter yet, but now I think that that isn't true: you've simply maintained the excellent quality of the story, and this is the best chapter I've read in a while. I think your story has earned itself a place in my top five of best fan fic I've ever read (and I've read quite a lot.)

>>But the chapter does include quite a bit of summary so I don't think you'll need to reread all of Revelations again to catch up.<<

Ah, but I would *love* to reread all of Revelations. I don't have time for it, unfortunately...

A few things in this chapter I loved in particular:

*Hermione sitting next to a Slytherin girl every week, without telling Harry and Ron -- brilliant. I whole-heartedly agree with Hermione: not all Slytherins are bad. I'm glad you included this. Ron and Harry's reactions were very in character, too.

*Ginny having a bit of the temper of her mother. I think we'll be hearing more of this, as Ron didn't exactly use the most tactful way to get Ginny out of the way.

*Ramsey! I have a feeling that the clues are staring wide-eyed at me from the screen, but I don't see them. I really don't know what's up with Ramsey.

*The end. Harry feeling better because he has told Ron and Hermione. Wonderful. Brilliant. Lovely. The final two paragraphs are the best part of the chapter, without any doubt.

Looking forward very, very much to the next chapter!

Just when I thought I knew about all the good post-OotP stories, I find this one!
I always admire people who tie several plots in the same story: there's the mystery person who came back from behind the veil, there's Ramsey, there are the romantic sub-plots (I'm glad that you are not making Harry and Ginny moving too fast), and of course Lord Thingy.

I have to tell you that the whole part where Harry discovers Sirius's portrait in the attic was eerie to me. I had a dream a few weeks ago where the OC of my fic discovers a portrait of Sirius in Grimmauld Place's attic. It didn't make any sense as the Order's headquarters are no longer there in my story!
I absolutely liked how you make Harry realise that the portrait is NOT Sirius and how he's almost glad in the end to get rid of it. The part where Harry observes that Remus looks sick each time he walks by it was heartbreaking.

What I like the most is that, Like JKR, you write your fic from Harry's POV. It's frightening how you've pegged him well. I have the impression to read one of the books, in fact. Are you sure you're not HER? ;-)

Actually the truth is that Harry still thinks of her as a little girl and Ron's sister (i.e. not part of the trio), although that's starting to change. He uses the "I don't want to burden her" excuse with Hermione simply because he can't state the former to her.

Harry doesn't want to tell Ginny and Ron threatens to give her detention. This story is moving in a rather unbelivable direction. I have always disliked stories where Harry doesn't tell Ginny (or anyone else)about the MoM event because he doesn't want to burden her. It's just really cliche and totally fanon.

It's very cool. I like the way that you portrayed Harry and Lupin. A lot of the stuff in there is sort of what's been floating around in my mind about what the beginning of the next book'll be like. Darn you, your story made me stay up too late! lol, I've got babysitting tomorrow! (JK!)

To my readers,

There WILL BE another chapter but unfortunately it's not quite finished yet. I'll be very disappointed with myself if I don't finish it this weekend. Unfortunately it seems that everytime I sit down to write, I'm delayed by one thing or another. I wrote myself into a bit of a bind with the last chapter and am sorting my way out of it. Future chapters should go a bit more smoothly in terms of the writing and actually I have a half dozen or more future scenes already written for various chapters through the end. And I desperately hope to finish before the book comes out in July so that will mean much quicker updates.

I really appreciate your patience and your encouragement. Thank you.

That's funny because actually I've never been in either Victoria station or King's Cross. I've heard a bit more about Victoria though and saw some pictures and a description online. I visited London in April for the first time and very much wanted to stop at King's Cross but never found the opportunity - the closest I got was Covent Garden. But I saw the entrance to Victoria while on a bus and thought it looked very impressive.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all!

I'm really enjoying your story, its as well written as it is entertaining. When I read the parts about Kings Cross and Victoria I thought you must be british, cause it was very accurate. The only hole I could pick in it was the fact that Victoria's not really a great deal more impressive than Kings Cross; in fact, Kings Cross, with its great brick arches, is my favorite of the two. Victoria's glass roof is spectacular(or would be if it were kept clean), but hardly anyone ever looks up when they are there: too busy looking at the coca cola adverts etc. I'm glad that the order of the phoenix appreciated it, though. Anyway, must get back to reading your story: wanna find out what happens!

I have really enjoyed reading this story. I have read a few fanfics, but this is the first where I felt I was reading something that had been published, not just submitted on a site. It's great really. I love the developing relationships. I would love to see some of the scenes from Ginny's POV. I felt like she was throwing Dean's name out there to get a rise out of Harry at some points. I loved that she knew about the broom! The only scene I had trouble with was in CHapter 7. I just felt that Mr. Weasley was a bit too mean, but I have never had a child abandon me so what do I know? Over all it has been a great read and I look forward to more!

I haven't had much time to read fan fiction lately as this is my first year of teaching. However, a friend recommended this story, and It immediately intrigued me as we are all imagining what will happen in the 6th book.
You have stayed true to the characters and to J.K. Rowling's style. I loved all the action that happened at Grimmauld Place. I like to relationship that is unfolding between Lupin and Harry. You are very consistent with how Harry is feeling.
The relationships between R/H and G/H are appropriate and clever. I am interested to see how they will continue to develop over the course of the year.
I enjoy the new character Ramsey. He has layers to him that make your readers stay interested and wonder if he is really good or evil or actually somewhere in between.
Thank you for writing your story. It really fits nicely as a "6th book". I am looking forward to reading the rest!

Hi Cendrillon

I just happened to stumble on your story here and in my honest opinion, it's the most well-organised and thought out story on HP that I've read.

Thank you for developing Ginny's character so convincingly and Harry's gradual interest in her is also very convincing after they share the attic 'work'.

I think your stories are very captivating and you have made me a very devoted fan of your writing! I can't wait for your next installment. Please keep up the wonderful writing.

Ohh, the encounter with CHO was so in canon, Harry was almost mute, and she was the one encouraging the conversation!

Aww, Birgit, you wouldn't believe how many conversations I had about whether conjuring was properly a Transfiguration class or a Charms class. At last, we concluded that it made more sense as a Charms class, but I guess I should have just asked you! And since they're also supposed to learn human transfiguration at NEWT level, that was another reason I decided to put conjuring in Charms (and Flitwick conjures things far more than McGonagall it seems). Hmm, this may merit a discussion in the forums.

Reviewer: BirgitDate: 2004-11-20
Reviewid: 105383Chapter: 16
Well, it's been a very long time, but I don't mind much. You offered a very good and very long chapter, and I didn't need to re-read anything at all to recall what had happened before in the story.

That said, I do hope that the next chapter will arrive sooner, because I really want to know what action Harry's going to take.

A few small bits of criticism: in the first place, you made a canon error. In OotP, the fifth-years learned Vanishing spells in Transfiguration, and McGonagall says that those come up at the OWLs as they're slightly easier than Conjuring spells, which are NEWT level spells. So clearly, Conjuring spells are Transfiguration, not Charms.

Also, I noticed a couple of run-on sentences in this chapter. The very last sentence, for example:

>>And when morning came, it would be a time for action, his days of passivity were over.<<

Between "action" and "his" there should be either a semicolon or a period, or a word like "and" or "as" or "because". However, more important than whether it's grammatically correct or not, run-on sentences tend to sound hasty. But in this case, you don't want that. It would be much more powerful if you would make "his days of passivity were over" a new sentence.

Anyway, that's just a few little things. Overall, I really liked the chapter. I'm just as confused about Ramsey as Harry; I can't wait to see what secrets he is hiding.

My favourite bits:

>>I mean he's older, and he's always scowling<<
Yeah, good reason, Ron! Hermione would be much happier together with a grinning red-haired boy, don't you think? ;-)

>>just a few short words that Hermione would have skipped a class to hear <<

Looking forward to the next chapter!

Wow, I just found this story tonight and read all that is here in one plae setting (who needs sleep anyway??). One of the best 6th year fics I have read. I kinda though that Hermonie and Ginny figured out the broom thing because she got the brrom back and only hours after being told it woudl be weeks, with harry talking to her in between. It woudl be logical that she woudl not get it back unless it was checked or if McGonagall knew who gave it ..... But, your explination works too.

I'm glad that it looks like harry is about to take his life in hand. I really loved the chapter in the death chamber and a bit after that. I was even filled with indignation on Harrys behalf. It is his life afterall and he has a lot of reason to getting fed up with DD micromanaging it in cannon. Obviously keeping him from killing himself is v.good but taking it upon himself to tell not only the whole Order but the likes of Snape?!?! Unconcionable!! Harry was reasonably humilated by the whole thing and lets face it thats a really personal expirance. Im glad he was really withdrawn after it, with everyone complaining to him about being withdrawn ... I thnk he earned a bit of withdrawl.

Plus, Ramsey!!!! WIth a facination with Egypt no less!! Very cute and clever. I like him. He could be evil and I would still liek him. I am also really curious about him.

I hope James redeams himself in the diary soon. I think Harry gave him a bad rap in cannon ... in Ootp that is. A lot of fan fic authors have done this poor little snape bit and made Harry feel sorry for what his dad did in the pensive. But, you know even if snape did not deserve it at the time (Which I dont think is entirly clear form cannon) he has more than made up for it since in his unprofessional treatment of Harry and others. In any event its a debt Harry has paied in full and then some .... Snape coudl be hung upsiade down again and deserve it. Or turend into a bouncing ferrett (somethign that Harry strangly does not feel bad about even in terms of someon else doing it).

Post soon!!!!

In answer to your first question, there will be more history of Lily and James, particularly their courtship. I'm not sure to what extent yet that will include Godric's Hollow and their deaths. Is there something more specific you're wondering about with those events? I'll try to include it if it fits.

2) What would Hogwarts be without Draco? Of course, he will be included. Alas, I'm finding that many, many characters and multiple plots have to be included so I can't promise yet that he will a large role in the next chapter. However, I definitely foresee some Quidditch encounters in the future. And then there's always the trial...oops, I said too much. ;-)

3) Some other things that have come up in interviews over the last few months will be included as well as some more of the newer and ongoing mysteries from the books. But don't look for the half-blood prince to make any appearances.

Wonderful writing so far. I especially enjoyed the Death Chamber and Punishment chapters, extremely compelling (You made me cry).
Finally somebody is actually acting like a parent to Harry, Sirius for all his good points, was more like a brother or a friend, Remus also cares deeply for him but in a different way.
The Ramsey character is also interesting, I note that he does not flinch at Voldy's name but neither does he call him by it (the dark lord instead). Intriguing.
Keep it up.

*dances* AN UPDATE!! AN UPDATE!! All the best authors take so long to update... but it's always worth the wait. Fantastic again!

I am really pleased with your DADA prof. Ramsey... He seems pretty interesting - and I can't wait to find out some of his secrets (though I suspect it will be a while...).

I might have mentioned before that I don't really ship Harry/Ginny, but you've made them very sweet so I don't mind their budding romance. I think if JKR puts them together - it might be something like this.

Poor Harry has got to tell Hermione and Ron about the prophecy now? I hope they won't treat him too differently. I could see them making him feel more awkward now - of course this could lead to him talking to Ginny more.

I am glad you've kept Krum in. I think Krum's arrival might just be the motivation Ron needs to spill his little secret!

In HBP - JKR is planning to get a bit of the background about Godric's Hollow and the Potter's deaths in - will something like that be relavent in your story? I'd love to see your take on it before HBP comes out.

I have a bit of love for Draco - his failed attempts at foiling the trio crack me up. And I feel kind of bad for him, he can't help but be so awful. If you haven't planned to already - can you put a bit of him in soon?
