1. Mirrors by purplemagik [Reviews - 6] starstarstarstarhalf-star (1056 words) Printer

The story starts off a bit slow to give some background, and a look inside the characters' heads, but it will pick up later on.

3. Unsuspected Depths by purplemagik [Reviews - 6] starstarstarstarhalf-star (2062 words) Printer

4. Seeing Past the Surface by purplemagik [Reviews - 10] starstarstarstarstar (3810 words) Printer

I'm hoping to keep updating at least once a month, but I do have a busy schedule. Harry should find out that Snape is his father next chapter. Severus won't find out for a while, though he may begin to suspect.

Maya is Harry's nickname for Hermione, pronounced MY-a.

5. New Images by purplemagik [Reviews - 11] starstarstarstarhalf-star (2473 words) Printer

Ok, this is a fairly short, but very busy chapter. Very important! The aftermath will follow next chapter.

6. Unrecognized Faces by purplemagik [Reviews - 6] starstarstarstarhalf-star (2708 words) Printer

I'm sorry it took so long to update. With my grandmother's passing, then Christmas, and then midterms, suffice it to say I've lacked both time and motivation. I promise it will get better!

Thank you to everybody who reviewed, and to bluedancer for betareading!

7. Appearances Are Usually Deceiving by purplemagik [Reviews - 4] starstarstarstarstar (3313 words) Printer

Disclaimer: Not mine, never mine...

Thank you bluedancer! For all the helpful suggestions, the feedback, and all the time you take to read and edit.

Thank you, all my lovely reviewers. The reviews make me want to keep writing.

8. Calm Waters by purplemagik [Reviews - 4] starstarstarstarhalf-star (3054 words) Printer

Thank you to everyone who reviewed, and I'm sorry for the lack of replies. I apologize for the long gaps between updates. They are going to come much faster for the summer, and I hope to finish the story by September.

Thank you to bluedancer, who has been a wonderful beta. Unfortunately, since I'm going to try posting so frequently, the rest of the story will be unbetaed.

That means I need reviews more than ever!

9. Reflecting by purplemagik [Reviews - 4] starstarstarstarstar (2670 words) Printer

Thank you to those who reviewed. Reviews are very much appreciated. This chapter's a bit slow action-wise, but it has a lot of Severus Snape in it.

"Italicized quotations will be the message bracelets worn by Harry and Hermione"

10. Unexpected by purplemagik [Reviews - 6] starstarstarstarstar (1337 words) Printer

Disclaimer: Not mine

Thanks for all the reviews! The vast majority were very nice.


I'm really trying to use this story to improve my writing. I'd like to ask all my readers, if you have time to leave a review, to include something wrong with the story, whether it be a grammatical error, or something with the characters, pace, or anything else that bugs you. By all means say nice, happy things too. Thanks!

11. Brought to the Surface by purplemagik [Reviews - 5] starstarstarstarhalf-star (2161 words) Printer

Disclaimer: J. K. Rowling owns everything. I'm just borrowing.

Thanks for the reviews, especially the ones that offered some constructive critisism. I'm glad everyone is liking the story so far. So now, with this chapter, everyone should be happy I updated so quickly, and then furious with me, because it's another short cliffie. Sorry. the next one will be longer and more satisfactory, I promise.

As always, reviews are very much appreciated. Which means "Please, pretty please, with cockaroach clusters on top, please leave a review!"

12. Ripples by purplemagik [Reviews - 1] starstarstarstarstar (2576 words) Printer

I know, I know, I'm sorry for the wait on this one. Writer's block. The chapter's a bit slow, but the next one will be more fun, I promise. As always, reviews are very much appreciated, even if you're reading this a week or more after the last update. If you made it to chapter 12, please let me know what you think!

13. illumination by purplemagik [Reviews - 5] starstarstarstarstar (2037 words) Printer

Okay, so, I finally went and actually read the Severitus challenge, and I think all I'm missing is Remus coming back to Hogwarts. Correct me if I'm wrong. So, Remus Lupin fans, you're in luck. He's going to come back. It'll be fun, and it'll make the story an actuall Severitus challenge story. So, enjoy the chapter, and I'll try to get an update out asap. Thanks for all the reviews last chapter! Keep 'em comin'!

14. Déjà vu by purplemagik [Reviews - 0] (1539 words) Printer

Disclaimer: JKR's

Thank you all so much for the reviews! Before you read this one, I warn you, it's a cliffie, and it doesn't really answer all the questions from last chapter. You'll have to wait for the next one. I will, however, try to update quickly, so that nobody has cause to hate me (at least not permanently). I promise that it was necessary.

15. Inklings by purplemagik [Reviews - 0] (1673 words) Printer

Disclaimer: If I owned Harry Potter, I could afford a car.

Thank you for the reviews! This is a fairly slow chapter. No more life and death stuff for a while. Actually took me longer to finish than I would have liked, but it's here now. Enjoy!

16. Waves Start with Ripples by purplemagik [Reviews - 10] starstarstarstarstar (3013 words) Printer

Disclaimer: I own nothing!

Author's note/apology: Sorry! I know, I haven't updated in months, and I feel horribly, and I'm really sorry! Life got in the way, but I'm back now, and here's the latest, and I think I can wrap it up in about 10 more chapters. Again I apologize!

Thank you to everyone who reviewed last time!
