Hello, again! It's been AGES. I hope you read this, then. >.> Well, just wondering what you've been up to, though it is none of my business. I saw on your bio that you're writing new fics - are you? re you? I love your work!

Author's Response: Yes, I am! I'm sorry; I keep messing up with one of them... and then computer problems. I know I haven't been on mush, but life seems to enjoy throwing all these delightful *cough* problems at you, so...
The everlasting arenít memories. Very true.
What I like about this poem is how short and simple it is- but there is so much meaning behind the words. And of course, my favorite part is the ending. Those last four lines were just so beautiful! Great job. ^_^
Author's Response: Aaaw. Thank you. Ack. How original oof me. But really; thank you for the review!
hey..u still there, buddy? :-?
I got a new poem out..
Author's Response: Sorry... I've been gone for a while, some family issues. I'm trying to catch up with everyone though... you've been busy since I've been gone.
Sorry. I just love this poem so much. There's so much feeling behind it...(You know, I am starting to scare myself. I'm really obsessed with poetry on this site - yours included - and most of the stuff I like is rather depressing....and most of the stuff I write is rather depressing... - though I did submit one slightly fluffy one-shot recently, but it'll probably be rejected again, I don't do fluff that well.)
I agree with what JusticeForMedea said, though I didn't see that when I read this poem. *feels foolish* I'm never gonna pass English, I can't find meanings and stuff that well except for what is obvious. But anyway, once I saw what Justice was talking about, I totally saw it and agreed with it and liked this poem 10 times better. So, thanks to JusticeForMedea and to you, hogwartsrules, for writing this poem in the first place. *worships ground you walk on* No, I'm kidding. I don't worship ground...(Notice how I didn't say 'authors'.) :-)
Okay, I have to stop rambling now...my cat is practically clawing my leg off for food...

Author's Response: I better start getting more sleep, 'cause even though it's I would normally laugh at your review (it's funny! not laugh at it.. urg, tounge-tied) i burst into hysterical laughter. But anyway.... i noticed that you like U2... great band. unfortunatley, i've only heard one song by them, "Bloody Sunday". Yeah, I actually didn't know my poem showed a quarter of what JusticeForMedea said. Ironic. Hold on, you have a new story coming out? *looks around madly*
Author's Response: heh... wrote the U2 thing for wrong review... still you. of course... really gotta start sleeping better. Hold on, i gave to get started on that Pre-Algebra homework now... lovely. (who would've thought middle school would be so hard?!?!) That'll make me go to sleep.
HI again!...ok. i promise i wont get all lockharty on ya *has urge to sign an autograph*...im reallly happy u like my work!...ugg, i know those first days but ull get it eventually, i been on MNFF for arounf 15 months or so, trust me :-)...
Im not at all that great, ya know, i triedsubmitting a story once and it got rejected, and then a few months back i used my strenght- poetry, and got in.
Don't be so embarased, im sure one day someone will faint if u leave them a review...or are u still unconcious *pokes*...
By the way, not to beg, but can u leave me a review? im crazy for them :-)
Author's Response: yes, of course@ meant to do it yesterday, but my idiotic sister made me get off the computer so she could get on... *shakes fist at sky*
Oooooooh, I liiiike. You portrayed Ginny, Hermione and Ron very well. I especially like how you made each section different, changing the flow, meterm rhyme scheme, etc. Maybe it was just me, but I got the feeling you were using that to push across the characters' personalities?
Ginny's part was sweet and young, and the rhymes made the section smooth. It sounded romantic and... well, poetic. Hermione's was the shortest, no nonsense, straighforward. She was gentle, simple and grieving without being mushy or dreamy. She's in pain, but you can't hear her tears the way you can in Ginny's part. Ron's is typical, o definite structure, kind of informal. He rambles slightly, repeats himself once, mentions quidditch. Here I see a teenage Ron, making me think of him at the end of HBP. His isn't the most eloquent speech one could make, not the most cultured or planned out, but it is so touching. It's as if he is really talking directly to Harry here, whereas Ginny is lost in her thoughts, speaking to thin air, and Hermione is almost speaking to herself, comforting herself.
Them speaking together at the end was also a wonderful touch, it really pulls the poem together. Good job, Keep going!
Waiting for I See Him,
Author's Response: thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou! (*faints again* i can't belive it; another one of my favorite authors is reviewing my eork, and saying it's good! *sighs in pleasure*) you really got the way i themed the poem down... thanks!
Author's Response: drat it, just checked my e-mail... didn't get accepted yet, apparently my grammar on that one was a bit... ahem, sketchy. g2g fix that now.
My previous review didn't even start to do this poem justice, so...
EUPHRATES' SECOND REVIEW:
Amazing structure here, and there is a ton of feeling behind everything everyone is saying - how they will all remember Harry, the things he did with/for them...
Of course my favorite POV is Ginny's...*sniff* It is so sad and bitter and...just...*sniff(again)* Lots of emotion.
I like how the ending of this poem wraps everybody's thoughts up. Very nicely done. (And it is sad, too, but not too sad...not all weepy wishy-washy sadness that just makes me want to laugh - this was true sadness in it's bitterest form. (Is bitterest a word? Oh well.)
I like how every stanza with a POV ends with I remember.
I won't forget.
They sure better not...how could someone, anyway?
Wow. Great poem. I love it.
~Tyger, tyger, burning bright - Euphrates
P.S. If you don't write more poetry...I'll- *censored*
Just kidding. :-)
Author's Response: lol, your review made my day... Don't worry about the poetry. I've submitted another one, called 'I See Him', though I'm not sure if the admin will accept it. Wow, I get a 10000%? *cheers and dances madly, knocking over people.* If only i could get that grade in math... *shakes head, rather upset.* but anyway. Ack, i've g2g, my dog's trying to walk all over the keyboard, might hit the delete or escape button without me submitting this...
Author's Response: Haha, just read the response you gave to my second review on your poem, 'With All My Heart'... lol. Ack, again, crazy dog, won't leave the laptop alone... [sorry to anyone reading this response and feeling left out.]
Nice poem, I loved it!
Just one thing-That was Harry, and he was dead, and Ginny, Hermione and Ron are remembering times with him...right?
Author's Response: Yes, you got. It's from Ron's, Ginny's, and Hermione's point of view.
Author's Response: Can't believe i forgot to say this, but TY SO MUCH FOR YOUR REVIEW! :-)
Wow. I'm at a loss for words. Brilliant.
Author's Response: *blushing so much, she looks like a tomato* Thank you. (Wow, I'm really good at original wring in reviews, aren't I?)
Hello! this was good, i like it lots. It's really true :-)....GOOD JOB!!! 10/10
Author's Response: I am bright red right now. Thanks!
Author's Response: OMG, I JUST NOTICED YOUR USERNAME! You are such a fantastic author! (uh, I've never reviewed, but i read your poems, which are WICKED, by the way, when i was still a newbie and didn't know how to do a darn thing.) Your poems are so good, they make me actually see what's going on! (OMG, and you said my poem was good! *faints in pleasure* *reagains composure*) Ahem, sorry about that.
*gasp* It was validated! Congrats :D
Ginnto to Harry, Hermione to Harry, Ron to Harry? I'm assuming Harry dies. It was was a sweet little poem. I enjoyed the bits that rhymed and the parts that didn't. I really like the repetition of words at the end and how each line starts with "I" except for the closing. This seems like the sort of poem one would recite at a funeral reminiscing the good times as the eulogy, or part of it.
Author's Response: Thanks. I didn't think of the poem the way you describe it, but that's true. Thanks for reviewing!
Author's Response: wow, terrific repsonse, huh? i should write this all down sometime... but anyway. thanks for reviewing, and, btw, when do you think your poem/story is going to be accepted? I'm dieing (dying? diing? di...) to know!
An interesting poem! It doesn't rhyme, but who says poems have to? The poem portrays the feelings of Ginny, Hermione, and Ron about Harry briefly. The only thing is how limited the events you wrote about are, but if you included everything, the poem would be a mile long! Good job!
Author's Response: awww, gee. Thank you! I've never been good at rhyming poems, actually. *blushes* Thanks again!
