Bio:
I love books, movies, AND Fanfiction.
Obsessed Harry Potter fan
Terrible Jane Austen fan:Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Persuasion, Emma
Other books I love:
Jane Eyre, Anne of Green Gables series, The Witch of Blackbird Pond, Little Women, Elsie Dinsmore: A life of Faith, Ella Enchanted (the book not the movie especially) and many others.
I love to write and I would've written out a couple of fanfics by now if i had not found it so easy and fun to pretend to act them out.
I have too many fanfics as you can see that are favorites. Its the same way withmy favorite movies too.
I have great respect for fanfic writers because they dare to use their imaginations and their own observations to predict what could happen despite the fact that JK Rowling has already planned out the future for Harry Potter. Hip HIp Horray!!!!!!!!
Don't be surprised if I use your contact instead of just reviewing your fanfic to show my appreciation and how much i want you to update. But as I haven't written anything you probably won't notice this bio anyway.
I am a terrible romantic. I love fanfics that invoke passion and reality in them but I also love to laugh. This is probably why i have never sent anything in as a fanfic because i don't deem my work worthy of what all of you create.
I'm a perfectionist when it comes to my work especially. I'm also impatient though I do try hard to work on that. I love acting- out really good fanfics.
Basically if you ever want a day to just read for once, I've got a long list of favorites to choose from.
I support James/ Lily, Ron/Hermione, Harry/ Ginny, Remus/Tonks.
Another thing about me I ramble a little too much. LOL...

Update Dec 3, 2009
I have just sent in the first chapter of my first fanfic, hopefully people will enjoy it. Yes finally after several years of just reading fanfictions, reading the books, and watching the movies I got up my courage to actually write the first chapter. Its my first step hopefully its successful!

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!"

Love Conquers by dumbly_dorr
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 321]

Summary: If you're looking for the usual James-loves-Lily-but-Lily-hates-James storyline, then this isn't it. The thing is, Lily doesn't hate James at all, he can just be annoying at the best of times. As she comes to realise why she doesn't hate him, it leads to the famous love we all know about. Set against the backdrop of a warring magical world where nothing is certain, can James and Lily hold onto each other and fight?

UPDATE August 08: It's FINISHED! Thank you so much to all those who have read and reviewed this story, I have loved your support. i hope there are still people out there who are willing to read it. Keep an eye out for more stories by me! UPDATE February '08: I have changed the chapter names of some of the 'Defied' chapters, to make this fit and to make it more plausible, as I see the 'thrice defying' of Voldemort as happening when James and Lily are part of the Order of the Phoenix.

UPDATE 20th September: I have altered my facts in the chapter 'Once Defied' as I made mistakes in the ages of James and Lily. It didn't matter so much in this chapter but had annoying repercusions for future chapters. It should all now be correct.

Not a Maybe Thing by HoneydukesAddict
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 126]

Summary: Lily knew that James was nothing but trouble. He was rude, conceited, and indifferent to anyone that wasn't in his group of friends. She had known him to be that way for six long years.

But their seventh year comes, and Lily slowly begins to see that he is no longer the boy he was. Now Lily sees herself more clearly, and she isn't sure she likes what she sees.

This is the almost-forgotten story of Lily and James's romance, and what they went through to become the heroes that were Harry Potter's parents.

Meet the - Children? by Winged Artemis
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 244]

Summary: Lily Evans is a cheeky, brainy, hopeless romantic seventeen-year-old Head Girl with a sour temper. James Potter is an arrogant, hilarious, prank-pulling seventeen-year-old Head Boy with an immature head on his shoulders. Lily loathes James and James loves Lily. Blahblahblah.

Hey, Nonny, Nonny by Pussycat123
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 77]

Summary: “With a little thing called trickery, lies and deceit ...”

Based on the Shakespeare play, Much Ado About Nothing, this fic follows the Marauders, Lily, and her identical twin friends, Isabella and Henrietta (Izzie and Henrie to most) as they fall in and out of love, through complex, elaborate and intricate tricks, plots and schemes. This fic has everything. The Marauders, Shakespeare, humour, romance, devious plans and maybe even a bit of snogging here and there ... so are you ready?

“Then sigh not so,
But let them go,
And be you blithe and bonny,
Converting all your sounds of woe
Into Hey, nonny, nonny”

[Taken from Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing]

Summary: 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, fairiesandcream, and Omagus.
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.
