WARNING: I know Snape is going to come off a bit OOC in this chapter, and I apologize for that, but there is a reason for it! He will be back to his usual self, I think, in the next few chapters. Just bear with me for now, and I promise I’ll bring the snarkiness back to our favourite Potions Professor!

10. So Emotional by Julz [Reviews - 3] starstarstarstarstar (6990 words) Printer

I want to give a big shout out to Utena-Puchiko-nyu, who sent the 100th review for Never Alone (on FF.net)! Woo hoo! I’m so excited that this story is getting so much recognition and feedback! Please keep reading and reviewing, it keeps me going! On another note, I received a flame for making Remus gay and called an imbecile, my knowledge of the series questioned. Obviously this person doesn’t get the way AU fiction works, so I will laugh it off and encourage people to send reviews to help cheer me up!

15. Winds of Change by Julz [Reviews - 5] starstarstarstarhalf-star (6739 words) Printer

Hello my lovely readers! I felt like posting again, so here’s another chapter! I’m in a little bit of pain right now. Know why?? Because I got the Dark Mark tattooed on my arm! Woo hoo, it hurt so good LOL. Enjoy this chapter! Maybe I’ll put a link to a pic of my tat on my profile…if you ask nicely.

16. Close Yet Far by Julz [Reviews - 6] starstarstarstarhalf-star (6380 words) Printer

So, who else was disappointed with the movie adaptation Half-Blood Prince? Mhmm...so, here’s a new chapter to distract yourself from the pain of it! Oh yeah, this is the first ever beta’d chapter! Thanks to Vincent Severus Mycroft, my beta! After this story is finished, I’ll probably go back and make edits in the first 15 chapters that he went back and beta’d for me. For now, I’m going to focus on writing the story some more! Enjoy!

17. Muse by Julz [Reviews - 3] starstarstarstarstar (6905 words) Printer

Sorry about the long wait!

18. Fracture by Julz [Reviews - 5] starstarstarstarstar (7844 words) Printer

I’m so sorry this is so late! My beta seems to have fallen off the face of the earth, and I’m tired of waiting, so this is unbeta’d! Sorry for any mistakes. From now on, if my beta doesn’t get back to me within a few days, I’ll post without it being edited. It’s not like it changes that much. I hope you all enjoy this chapter!

THIS CHAPTER HAS BEEN REVISED!

19. Dazed and Confused by Julz [Reviews - 4] starstarstarstarstar (6784 words) Printer

WARNING: Allusions to non-consensual, homosexual sex. Rape, in other words. None graphic, but still enough to make some cringe. Sorry about that!

20. Something Wicked This Way Comes by Julz [Reviews - 6] starstarstarstarstar (5932 words) Printer

Hello my dear readers! I figured it was time for an update as I’ve finally finished writing chapter 23. It’s getting more intense, folks! I hope this chapter displays the new intensity quite nicely for you all! Thanks for reading!

22. Family? by Julz [Reviews - 4] starstarstarstarstar (7020 words) Printer

Hey there everyone! I’m very sorry it’s been so long since my last post, but I’ve been going through some hard stuff this month. My fiancé broke things off with me, and I’ve been struggling a bit with coping, but I’m doing ok now. It’s time to move on! So, here’s another chapter for your reading pleasure!

23. Tearful Revelations by Julz [Reviews - 5] starstarstarstarhalf-star (5070 words) Printer

Hello my lovely readers! I’d like to thank everyone who has reviewed on this story so far. Some of you have stuck through from the very beginning, and I wouldn’t be able to go on without you! For those readers who have stayed loyal from the start, but haven’t reviewed yet, I thank you as well, and hope you’ll give your opinions soon enough! This one is a little on the short side, but the next is the longest chapter yet, so it makes up for itself. My posting has almost caught up with my writing, so updates may be fewer and far between! Also, I’m going back to school starting in January, so my time to write will be cut down immensely. I’m going to try to write as much as possible these next two months before that happens. Thanks again, and enjoy!

24. Home for the Holidays by Julz [Reviews - 5] starstarstarstarhalf-star (9135 words) Printer

Hey there everyone! Well since Thanksgiving is next week (for those of us who live in the states), I decided to go ahead an update now while I have the chance! I’ll be registering for school again next month, and then Christmas will soon be upon us, so writing time may be cut back a little bit. The chapters are seeming to get a bit longer with each one I write, but I’m sure you all don’t mind that! There’s still quite a bit to go for Harry’s sixth year!

I have a proposition for all my readers, however; I intend to have Harry go on through his seventh year as well, what I want to know from all of you is if you’d prefer it to stay all together in one story, or if I should make his seventh year a sequel to Never Alone? Please review and let me know what you all think! This will be a very big and important decision for me, as I’m still working on the plot line quite a bit, and knowing where to end Never Alone is obviously very important. Thanks again to all my readers; I wouldn’t be able to write as I do without you! Hope you enjoy this extra long chapter!

25. The Final Goodbye by Julz [Reviews - 8] starstarstarstarstar (9410 words) Printer

Hey everyone! Well here’s another chapter! You lucky ducks will most likely be getting THREE chapters this month, just so I can fit the chapter containing Christmas in close to the actual date of Christmas. I’m going to try, but I make no guarantees. I need more opinions on whether or not to make Harry’s 7th year a sequel, so please review and let me know! Enjoy!

26. Abandoned Manor by Julz [Reviews - 8] starstarstarstarhalf-star (8161 words) Printer

Hey there! Well here’s chapter two of three for December! I’m hoping and trying my hardest to be able to get the Christmas chapter out around Christmas, so expect one more chapter before the end of the year! Enjoy, and please review!

27. In the Garden Matris: Part 1 by Julz [Reviews - 3] starstarstarstarhalf-star (4720 words) Printer

Because of the limits of this website, I had to break this chapter up into two parts in order to upload it. I think it's a little ridiculous, but you gotta do what you gotta do! I hope you all enjoy!

28. Chapter 27 cont. In the Garden Matris: Part 2 by Julz [Reviews - 5] starstarstarstarstar (4857 words) Printer

Because of the limits of this website, I had to break this chapter up into two parts. Chapter 27 and 28 are to be considered ONE combined chapter. Enjoy part 2, and please review!

29. Come Hell or High Water by Julz [Reviews - 11] starstarstarstarstar (7925 words) Printer

Hey all! Sorry that this is a little bit later than I intended it to be. It’s also a bit short, but I felt like it was cut off at a good spot. I’ll be starting school again soon, so updates may slow down more as I lose time to write. Don’t worry, though! I’ll never give up on this story! I just ask for a little bit of patience as real life takes a busier turn. Thanks to all of my readers and reviewers, and I hope you enjoy this chapter!

WARNING: This chapter includes a scene that may be slightly triggering for some readers, though it is not graphic in any way. Please proceed with caution!

30. Promises by Julz [Reviews - 10] starstarstarstarhalf-star (7526 words) Printer

Sorry for the long wait! School started up again and MERLIN am I busy! You’re all going to hate me...Enjoy!

31. Seizure by Julz [Reviews - 8] starstarstarstarstar (5653 words) Printer

Hey everyone! Sorry about the slow updates, but school has been pretty crazy so far. I love college, but it’s taking over my life. Hope to have the next one out sooner! Enjoy!

32. Crowded Isolation by Julz [Reviews - 1] starstarstarstarstar (6384 words) Printer

Sorry for the horrifically long wait! College and life has been pretty crazy lately, and I just haven’t had very much time to write, but I’m getting back to it now! I have a few other projects in the works as well that I’ve been adding to periodically, so look out for some new stuff soon, possibly! I hope you enjoy this one!

33. Thirty-Six, and One for Good Luck by Julz [Reviews - 4] starstarstarstarstar (8130 words) Printer

The semester is almost over, yay! I’ve had a ton of inspiration lately, or so it seems, and I have quite a few chapters stacked up for y’all! No, I will not post them all one right after the other. You guys all have to wait! Don’t worry, I won’t make you wait too horribly long between chapters. I hope you enjoy this one! It was pretty fun to write. I actually had part of written probably a good six or so months ago! Enjoy!

34. A Father's Love by Julz [Reviews - 4] starstarstarstarstar (6206 words) Printer

Here’s another chapter for you! These next couple of chapters are really important, so pay close attention! I’m out of school until August, so I should have more time to write now! Enjoy!

35. These Dreams: Part 1 by Julz [Reviews - 1] starstarstarstarstar (3949 words) Printer

Once again, the limitations of this archive have made it so that I must chop one chapter into two parts. This time I was only about half a page over the limit. Chapters 35 & 36 are ONE chapter, cut in half. Sorry for the late update!

36. These Dreams: Part 2 by Julz [Reviews - 5] starstarstarstarhalf-star (4898 words) Printer

Here's the second half of chapter 35, These Dreams! This chapter was one of the hardest ones to write. I hope you all enjoy!

37. Decay by Julz [Reviews - 2] starstarstarstarstar (7081 words) Printer

Hey there, folks! Sorry for the long wait again, but I’ve been having a bit of a hard time getting through these chapters lately. I will admit that there is very little left to go of the first part of Never Alone! The second half, which I was going to create as a sequel, will instead be included as part of Never Alone. This way, the readers who have set Never Alone to their alerts and favourites won’t have to go search for a different story thread. Thanks for sticking with me through this! It’s been a long time in coming, and there is still more yet! Enjoy!


P.S. I must give a shout-out to my muse, who has been a Godsend recently with helping me figure these last few chapters out. Her name is Renee, she’s extremely intelligent and beautiful, and she’s my bestest friend! Everyone be sure to thank her in your reviews, for without her, you’d still be waiting for chapter 34 lol.

38. Unspeakable Plans by Julz [Reviews - 3] starstarstarstarstar (7031 words) Printer

Hello there readers! Well, I know I said that the end of the first part of this story was near, but I fear I spoke too soon. My muse and I have been working on the plot quite a bit after realizing something was missing. I’m still currently making hefty edits, and won’t even attempt to estimate how many chapters are left of the first half. All I know for sure is that there is much more to come than I had originally planned! Again, thanks go to Renee, my beta and muse for her infallible help! Enjoy!

39. And So It Begins... by Julz [Reviews - 2] starstarstarstarstar (6491 words) Printer

Ok, so I definitely lied about the number of chapters left in the first half, but I highly doubt any of you mind that haha. Thank you so much to all my readers and reviewers, and especially my beta and muse Renee. Without her, this story would have died. I hope you enjoy this chapter and the many more to come!

40. Wools and Wonts by Julz [Reviews - 1] starstarstarstarstar (6370 words) Printer

Hello readers! I must first profusely apologize for the abysmally long wait for this chapter! I have been sooooo busy with work and school – and breaking my toe – that I just haven’t had time. I hope everyone will stick with me and understand that sometimes, real life must take priority. I hope you enjoy this chapter!

P.S. As some of you will undoubtedly notice in this chapter, I have used some of JKR’s ideas and warped them into something different. I did this for a reason, and I give full credit to JKR for anything you may recognize as her work/wording/ideas.

41. Closing In by Julz [Reviews - 0] (7867 words) Printer

Hey there readers! I know it’s been a pretty long wait once more, and I apologize for that! After this chapter, there are only two or three more to go before the second half of this story begins! These next couple of chapters are pretty intense! Because I have more of them completed this time, it shouldn’t take quite as long to post them. I hope you enjoy this chapter!

42. Sticks and Stones by Julz [Reviews - 2] starstarstarstarstar (8257 words) Printer

I’m SO SORRY it took so long to get this chapter out! I’ve had major writer’s block, and starting a new job while going through finals at school has been insane. I’m on break now, so I should have more time to write and edit. Please forgive me for the long wait, and I hope you enjoy! Only a chapter or two left before ‘part two’ starts!

43. The End of an Era by Julz [Reviews - 1] starstarstarstarstar (6913 words) Printer

I’m SOOOOO sorry about the wait! You see, my other laptop died, and all of my login info was lost. I promise I have not abandoned this story; in fact, you guys will be getting two chapters because that’s what I have already posted of this story elsewhere, and a third will come soon after I finish editing! Please forgive me for the wait and silence, as I had no way of letting you guys know about my laptop’s death without my login info. Updates will be more regular now. Please continue to stick with me! We’re in the home stretch now. It’s nice to be back! I’m glad to say that I didn’t lose ANY of Never Alone, as I had it all backed up on my external. Woot! That being said, this is a pretty emotional chapter. I hope you all enjoy!

WARNING: Dark themes, lots of cussing, and…Character Death…GASP!

44. The Beginning of the End by Julz [Reviews - 2] starstarstarstarstar (6586 words) Printer

Hello readers! Again, I’m sorry it’s been such a long wait, but it will never be that bad again, I promise! Please bear with me and stay patient! I hope you enjoy this chapter, though it is a sad one.

45. Moving Plans by Julz [Reviews - 2] starstarstarstarstar (6423 words) Printer

Hey there readers! It’s update time! This chapter is pretty mild as chapters go, but let’s just say it’s the calm before the storm. Thanks to my muse, I’ve gotten a LOT of writing done within the past couple of weeks, and I have up to chapter 47 completed! (Technically, this current chapter is only chapter 43, since two previous chapters were split in half in order to post them). I predict quite a few more chapters. This is the story that never ends, apparently. Also, Never Alone has reached a huge milestone! The story, including chapters not yet posted, has officially reached 615 pages! I hope you enjoy this chapter. Happy reading!

46. The Talk by Julz [Reviews - 1] starstarstarstarhalf-star (6501 words) Printer

Hello again readers! This chapter is actually pretty mild, a bit like the calm before the storm. Things start to get more intense within the next few chapters! We’re getting down to the core of the story now! I hope you enjoy this chapter, and thanks for reading!

WARNING: Lots of awkward moments and a bit of angst.

47. Order in Grimmauld Place by Julz [Reviews - 2] starstarstarstarstar (8021 words) Printer

Hello readers! I’m going to stop pretending I know how many chapters remain of this story, as every time I try to guess, I’m dreadfully wrong. I’ll say more than five, but less than twenty, how’s that? This one is a pretty informative chapter, so pay close attention! I hope you guys enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!

48. The Griffin's Eye by Julz [Reviews - 0] (7340 words) Printer

Sorry for the long wait, readers! I’m a month into the summer semester of college, and boy am I busy! I’ll try to be better with updates, but no guarantees! Things are moving along, plot wise, however slowly. I hope you guys enjoy this chapter…as I hide behind my school books to avoid your reactions =).

49. Property of the Half-Blood Prince by Julz [Reviews - 1] starstarstarstar (6691 words) Printer

I am SO sorry it’s been such a long wait! Summer college is intense and time consuming. I know I left the story at a terrible cliff hanger, but this chapter should remedy any questions. We’re getting so close to the end now, I can’t believe it! I hope you enjoy this chapter, and hopefully it won’t be so long before the next update.

50. Coming of Age by Julz [Reviews - 0] (8307 words) Printer

Wow, I can’t even begin to explain how sorry I am for this really late update. Life has been super crazy lately, and it’s about to become even more crazy as I’ll not only be a full time college student, but I’ll also have a part time job. All my free time is bye-bye. So, to make up for being horrible, I’m giving you guys this chapter, and if you guys ask nicely in your reviews, I might post chapter 49 really soon as well. It’s getting much closer to the end now. Thanks to all of those who have stuck with me through this story, it’s been a long and bumpy ride, but it’s not over yet! Enjoy!

51. Godric's Hollow by Julz [Reviews - 3] starstarstarstarhalf-star (7509 words) Printer

I am SO SO SO sorry that this is so late! I had a really hard semester and I have a part time job now too. I haven't even really had time to write, let alone edit. The semester is over after tomorrow and my seasonal job ends next weekend, so I should have plenty of time to write. I won't promise it'll be a shorter wait, because life can get crazy. I hope you enjoy this chapter. It's getting down to the end now!

52. Life Debt by Julz [Reviews - 2] starstarstarstarstar (6387 words) Printer

As always, I’m terribly sorry for the wait! I try to get these out in a reasonable amount of time, but sometimes it just isn’t possible. I hope you guys are enjoying the story! The end is coming up very quickly. The third anniversary of Never Alone passed just a few days ago! I feel like my baby is growing up *tear*. Another milestone was hit as well: Never Alone has officially hit more than 700 pages! Enjoy this chapter, and please let me know what you think!

53. Downward Spiral by Julz [Reviews - 3] starstarstarstarstar (5431 words) Printer

Ahem…yeah, no excuses for the wait. This story has been giving me a LOT of trouble, and I just can’t seem to get back into the swing of things to finish it! Don’t worry; I’m still working on it. I’ll never abandon this story, even if it takes me another 3 years to finish it, although I really hope not!

WARNING: Thoughts of self-harm. From this point on, there may be some VERY triggering things to some readers. I apologize for that, but this is the way the story was heading since I started it. Some of this chapter and almost all of the next two were written a really long time ago, and I can’t really change the plot this far in. Please try to bear with me and don’t abandon this story!

54. Razor's Edge by Julz [Reviews - 3] starstarstarstarstar (6518 words) Printer

WARNING! GIANT HUGE IMPORTANT WARNING! Got your attention? Good. Now, this chapter is definitely triggering for those with self-harm and/or suicidal tendencies. If this bothers you, PLEASE let me know I will message you a summary of the end of the chapter so that you don’t have to read any upsetting parts. That being said, please don’t murder the author…all will be revealed in the end! Speaking of the end, it’s near! Again, sorry for the great delay, but life and all that rot. Please read and review!

55. The Pitch by Julz [Reviews - 5] starstarstarstarhalf-star (5740 words) Printer

I’m really sorry for the long wait! It was a crazy summer semester of college, and I had to deal with a few deaths and two additions to the family! I realized when going through the rest of my plot that there will only be two, maybe three more chapter before Never Alone will finally be complete. It’s been a long an bumpy ride, but I’ve enjoyed every minute of it! I hope you guys enjoy these last few chapters. Thank you to everyone who stuck through and continued to read, even after all this time. I couldn’t have done it without you!

56. “Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold” by Julz [Reviews - 8] starstarstarstarhalf-star (5233 words) Printer

I don’t think putting a long sappy apology here is really going to help all that much. I’ll just say that real life got a bit crazy and I kind of lost my writing mojo. I’m still in the process of getting it back, but in the meantime, have chapter 54. I hope there are still people willing to read after such a long wait. Enjoy!

59. Breakdown by Julz [Reviews - 7] starstarstarstarstar (6308 words) Printer

Well hello there lovely readers! I know, it’s been many centuries since my last update. I’m very sorry for that; I’ve had such massive writer’s block and I just haven’t had the time to devote to NA. We’re in the home stretch now! I’m SO CLOSE to finishing this beast, finally! I will try my hardest not to allow such a long time gap again, but I make no promises. Without further ado, enjoy!

60. Chapter 58: The Calm Before the Storm by Julz [Reviews - 2] starstarstarstarstar (5668 words) Printer

So I know it’s been a ridiculously, inexcusably long time, and I’m sorry. I won’t bore you with the details, but let’s just say adulating really really sucks. I started writing this story when I was 18. I am now 25. I have had a lot of growing up to do in the last 6 years, and that unfortunately did not leave enough time for my true passion; writing. I lied, this is not the last chapter. There will be at least one more, and an epilogue, or I might combine the last chapter and the epilogue into one. I’m not sure yet. You’ve waited long enough, so without further ado…

61. Chapter 59: Never Alone by Julz [Reviews - 2] starstarstarstarstar (3458 words) Printer

A/N: Hello there lovely readers. I must say, it has been far too long, and I am sorry. I have a lot going on right now. I have some life threatening health issues and I have been devoting most of my time and effort to fighting these illnesses, which has not left very much time or mental capacity for writing. I have missed writing very much, and I am trying to get back into it. I will be going through two surgeries within the next few months, including brain surgery. I am going to try to finish this story before that happens, just in case. If you have stuck with me this far – thank you from the very bottom of my heart. If you have recently discovered my story, welcome! It has been a bumpy ride!
This is the last full chapter before the epilogue, and possibly some one-shots to follow up and tie up loose ends later on. Please enjoy.

WARNING: Graphic violence, character death.

62. Chapter 60: Epilogue by Julz [Reviews - 6] starstarstarstarhalf-star (1868 words) Printer

Well folks, this is it! The final chapter of Never Alone. It has been a crazy journey, and I’m so glad to have shared it with all of you amazing readers. If you have been with this story from the very beginning, I give you kudos for your saint-like patience! To new readers just now discovering this story, thank you for reading and be glad you’re not waiting 7 years like the original followers lol! I do have plans to right a few one-shots to tie up some lose ends and give a glimpse of what the future holds for our lovely characters. I make no guarantee that this one-shots will be posted any time soon.

Thank you very much for reading and sticking with me. Without you, I’d be nothing!

The End.
