Hi, i'm Hannah, i'm 18 and i live in England. I am also working on a couple of stories but i get distracted too easily and i refuse to put them online without having a couple of chapters done first - i keep moving on to new stories (i'm very fickle)
I really love reading HP fanfic (obviously)
Hates: Americanisation of Harry Potter in fanfic - i am aware that american writers don't know everything about english life but, for the record, we do not say 'tardy' it's 'late', if using muggle money it is pounds (or quid if you need another word for it) and we do not have notes or 'bills' for small sums of money so saying they handed over a few notes actually equals quite a lote of money and we do not have snickerdoodles (you'd be suprised how much this comes up)
i am aware that i sound like i hate americans - i don't - it's just that i've recently read a lot of HP fanfic which is very, very americanised and it annoys me because it detracts so much from the world JK Rowling has created - i would imagine that english people notice this more than americans.
My favourite characters are Sirius, Fred and George and i always maintained that Snape was good (and i'm not just saying that), i also respect Ginny a great deal for putting up with so many older brothers - i can hardly cope with two.
For some time i secretly wished that Harry really would run away and stop just thinking about it - he sometimes moaned too much for me and i just wanted to yell 'stop moping and do something about it already!' - can you tell i'm really unsympathetic and impatient?
i also cried like a baby when Sirius and Dobby died and was in too much shock when Lupin and Fred died to do anything
i don't understand people who don't like Harry Potter (especially those who don't even bother reading them)
And i really don't like people who only watch the films and think that they are truly like the books.
and incase you havn't noticed already, i love to rant - it just flows out of me naturally

My take on the first of those 'nineteen years' between the 36th chapter of DH and the epilogue.
Warnings: contains an unusually-shaped ring, a nosy neighbour, a rude shop assistant, shaving mishaps, thoughtful gestures, threatening goblins, and, unexplained appearances of Romantic!Ron and Romantic!Harry. You have been warned.
Rating is for *mild* innuendo and *mostly* innocent interactions but I wouldn't let my 9 year old read it.

Summary: "Some mistakes are too much fun to make just once."
After Lily Evans, Head Girl of Hogwarts, starts a food-fight with James Potter, Head Boy of Hogwarts, they are both given detention for the rest of the year, and are assigned a 'detention journal', which the staff say will help to settle their 'overwhelming and disturbing differences'. We have come across Lily's journal; her take on why the whole affair ever started, her intriguing relationship with one ‘supreme git of the galaxy’, the extents to which she will go for revenge and where it will lead her...
"And if for some unknown reason you come across this, Potter, and the paragraph above does not manage to penetrate your unusually thick head and convince you of my stupendous dislike of you, I hope the following sentence helps: I HATE YOU!"

Rose was a Weasley. She never gave Scorpius Malfoy a second glance. They were sworn enemies, even though they’d barely even spoken to each other. But sometimes all it takes for love to blossom is a Potions lesson, a few snide remarks and a dropped book.
Two people. Two entirely different worlds that are suddenly intertwined.

Summary: Chapter Thirty-Eight in Queue!They say someday your life will flash before your eyes...
The Marauders. The name alone strikes fear into the hearts of teachers and makes girls swoon. Watch as Sirius, who has always kept his emotions locked up in a box, finally finds the girl that has its key; as James masterminds everything, except how to win over the girl of his dreams; as Remus finds love, but learns it's just as hard to keep it going, and as Peter tries to prove he's just as good as the other four, no matter what he has to do. They're unstoppable, and it's safe to say that once they're gone, Hogwarts will never be the same again....let's make ours worth watching.

James Potter: Marauder. Lily Evans: Prefect. They're both seventh years at Hogwarts. They're also about to have a pretty interesting year--complete with a few detentions, pranks, confusion, and laughter--in which they get through school, make some trouble and maybe, just maybe, sort out their feelings for each other.
Thanks to all you who have made it possible for this story to be in the Top Tens
. It was a very happy moment when I first saw my story on the list, and I love being able to go back and see it there now. Still. Yay!
Throughout the latter half of 2010, and the first half of 2011, I re-edited this story. The changes were mostly to fix stray (and annoying) grammar and spelling errors, but also to rework some plot points in an effort to stay truer to canon. I also updated the style; having written this story so long ago, my writing has definitely developed (and I would say gotten better), so I edited to reflect that. (I apologize for the errors that were in the story before all this editing. I found them immensely distressing when I reread my chapters. Heartbreaking, really.)
Big “thank yous” go to the three people who helped edit/nitpick the first edition of this novel: violagirl
And yes, this story is up on Fanficition.net under the penname: Io.Sono.Emilia.
Of course, as a disclaimer, I’m not JK Rowling. The Potterverse does not belong to me, but I am in it and love it.
