Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 1 Back at Privet Drive

Harry enters his 6th year at Hogwarts. In my take on JKR's 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince', find out what horrors await Harry this year. What romances will take place and just how Harry is dealing with the pressure of the prophecy.

Please leave reviews if you read, they really help me to improve my writing style. And thanks so much for reading (I know you're not supposed to start sentances with an 'and', don't worry)!

13 13 - At Hogwarts

So here is the thirteenth chapter, unlucky for some! I hope not me! Anyway this chapter is set back in Hogwarts on the same day as chapter 12. I really hope you all like it, although I really wasn't happy with some parts. I felt they were a little cringe worthy kind of thing. Anyway, please read away and PLEASE PLEASE (!) leave a review when you are finished. Thanks to all those that have reviewed so far too - and those that have just read too.

14 14 - Buckbeak's break for freedom

Well here is the long awaited 14th chapter (yeah ok!). In this chapter Hagrid arrives to remove Buckbeak to a better life...awww! Also there is some important information cleared up, which should hopefully make some things make sense. Well enjoy anyway and please leave a review letting me know what you think.Thanks.

2,265 8
15 15 - The Hogwarts Express

This chapter was part of one really long one but I thought I would split them in two as otherwise it would be too long for some people to read I think. So apologies for the abrupt ending (kind of), but hopefully it'll make sense when I've posted the next chapter - which I hope to do really soon, as then it might make more sense. Anyway, enjoy!

2,308 10
16 16 - Arriving back home

Right, chapter 16 up and ready! Thanks to everyone who has reviewed thus far lots of useful and encouraging comments have been made - so please keep 'em coming! In this chapter Harry and co. arrive back at school and are inducted back into school life, with a bang. Obviously this continues from the last chapter, so they should both make more sense now (I hope). Again though the end of this one has been moved into the beginning of the next one (17) so that one continues where this one leaves off. Thanks for reading, hope you enjoy this one.

2,351 12
17 17 - The Duel

19 19 - A giant detention

In this (long) chapter Harry has to undergo his detention with his favourite Professor - Snape. He has his first Care of Magical Creatures lesson too and not a lot has changed since lst year. Sorry this is such a long chapter with nothing much happening in. I suppose it could have been split into two smaller chapters - so if you would prefer that in future please review letting me know. Thanks to all those kind people who have been reveiwing my story so far. You are all lovely and kind etc etc and I really appreciate you taking the time to let me know what you think of my sto

So thanks so much for your time and effort so far, but it's not over yet!

21 21 - More revelations

This chapter is going to delight some readers and going to upset others. Sorry about that, but that's what you get with ships! There are plenty of other things going on though for those not interested in ships. Hope you enjoy and please let me know what you think, through the use of reviews!! Yes, this is a little reminder to people to remember to review after they have finished reading. So please be little dears and dudes and give me a few words of what you thought. Thanks to those who already have, please feel free to do so again!

22 22 - The DA

Ever so sorry people, I (rather stuidly) realised last night that I had put Luna in the Gryffindor common room, when of course she is a Ravenclaw - doh! So I have changed this chapter now, so it is correct. (The asking out section now takes part in the library - that's the only difference). Sorry about that, I should really think harder when writing this! Anyway thanks for all the great reviews I have got so far from people and you were all kind enough not to point out my stupid mistake either!Thank you. So please to others, review away, they are much appreciated.

23 23 - Preparations for the Ball

Hi, so the 23rd chapter is now up and ready for your pleasure! I know some of you will be disappointed with the fact that the ball is not in this chapter, well it was originally but the chapter was so long I decided to cut it into two chapters, so it's in the next and I promise to post the next chapter really soon to make up for it. Thanks so much to all my faithful readers and reviewers, it's lovely to hear so much from people now. Apologies to those reviews that I haven't replied to, it won't allow me to reply now as I had to delete the chapter because of my boo boo. So apologies

24 24 - The Half-Blood Prince

Here we go as promised a quick update for the chapter that details the ball! Hope you all enjoy and I'm sure several of you will be quite pleased with the outcome with regards to ships and the like - probably given away too much there! Anyway I hope you enjoy and please all let me know what you think. Thanks.

26 26 - Speaking with Voldemort

Hi I want to take this opportunity to say thanks to every one of my reviewers and readers and Merry Christmas to you all. This is my Christmas update and I'm slightly disappointed with myself for not having reached Christmas time in the story in time for real Christmas time. But as long as I have finished the story before JK releases the proper Half-Blood Prince on 16th July, then I'll be pleased. I'm sure I'll be finished well within time for that. Anyway, I hope you all enjoy this chapter, I can't help but feel it was a little rushed, so could have been better. But it is moving t

27 27 - Jubilation and Dishonour

Right well you lucky people you (ha ha yeah right!) I've managed to get another chapter down before Christmas, so I decided to give you another to keep you going until I'm able to update again!

28 28 - DA lesson one

OK this is a really long chapter - my longest yet I think, so I'm really sorry to those of you who prefer the smaller ones and I hope the length doesn't put anyone off reading. Hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and New Year, it was of course marred by the disaster in Asia for all of us, but hopefully these fanfics will offer a welcome distraction. Hope you don't find this chapter boring at all, but it was the first back after my break so I found it slightly harder to get going with. Anyway thanks for all the reviews I've received they're great so please keep your comment

29 29 - Snape and Herbology

Thanks so much to every one of my reviewers for the last chapter, there were many lovely things said, which I find really encouraging. Anyway I'm afraid to say that this is another lengthy chapter (maybe longer than the last!) and I know I said I wouldn't do that sort of thing again, but this one jsut kind of came out too! Anyway, I really hope you enjoy this one too and for those of you who like young James, Sirius, Lupin and Lily, there's something in this for you!

30 30 - The Dementors

I'm so sorry that this has taken so long to update with. I really hope you all think it is worth the wait - though i'm not sure that it is! I've actually been suffering with the flu last week and have also had a major upheaval as I am moving house this weekend and leave my job the week after, so it's all been a bit manic! Thanks for being so patient and I'll let you get on with reading now!

4,208 21
31 31 - The Hospital Wing

Hi everyone! I just wanted to take the chance to say thanks to everyone for reviewing and reading my fanfic, it's been really encouraging so far.

3,794 19
33 33 - The Crow

Hi everyone, thanks to all of you who have been reviewing lately. Some of you review so regularly, I'm so grateful for all you comments and suggestions. Anyway, this chapter is a bit of a filler in many ways because things are progressing and some things needed clarification and moving on before I can get onto the next stage of the story. Hopefully everything is clear in it, plus there is a little bit of fun added with Draco in this one - but its all part of the bigger picture so don't forget about it!
