I'm sorry to say that I will no longer be continuing to write A Girl Like You. I know that lots of you loved this story, I do too. I started writing it when I was in eighth grade, age thirteen, and I'm sure that if you read it, you can see my writing evolve and grow. As Amelia Jordan, my namesake character, grew and matured, so did I. I love her and all the other characters so much, they're practically my good friends. However, my poor writing towards the beginning of the story has limited me in where I want to take it. Plot points that I wanted to use couldn't because of things I had done early on. I know I could always go back and change things, tweak them around so that they work, but frankly, it's more work than I want to go through. So I've decided to stop writing. To everyone who loved this story and begged for updates, thank you so so so so so so so much!!! You guys are amazing. :)
Since I cut AGLY short, I'd like to share some of the things I had planned for the story.
-At the New Years party, I had written a draft of the most epic snowball fight ever. It was very fun to write, and might be one of my favorite scenes in the story so far.
-During the party, Sirius was going to take Amelia away from the group, they would exchange presents, and then they would finally have their first kiss.
-I wrote a draft to a chapter where Amelia goes to Lily's house. It was really fun to dabble around in the Muggle world.
-After returning to school, with no sign of Leah, Remus would get really depressed. Everyone was pretty down, so the Marauders hosted a "Win a Date With a Marauder" contest to cheer everyone up.
-The magical disease that struck Beauxbatons would strike Hogwarts. My theory behind it was that, after being exposed to the illness, a person doesn't show any symptoms at all until months after.
-My introduction to the disease part was one of my favorite moments, in my head. I never got around to writing it out. Amelia was studying in the library, she hears a noise from one of the rows. She goes to investigates, and finds Hollie passed out. Hollie is the first to fall ill.
I hadn't planned anything past that point.
I'm really sorry to all my readers for doing this, and I hope that you continue to like the chapters I currently have up.
Summary: If you asked her about her mundane life, Petunia would say without a second thought that she and Vernon could not be more content and happy to be living in their state of monotonous harmony. Yes, she would definitely say that. The question is, would she be telling the truth?
A slightly AU, post-Deathly Hallows story.
Summary: This is the story of a boy and a girl. And a boy. This is the story of love returned and unreturned, of friendship gone dry, and of the things people will do for love. This is the story of James Potter and Lily Evans and Severus Snape. *two-shot*
Summary: James Potter is about to give up his pursuit of his six-year crush, Lily Evans. But will he change his mind after an enlightening conversation with an understanding taxicab driver? One-shot, R&R!!
“Have you ever fallen in love?” James asked hesitantly.
“Have you ever loved her with all your heart and soul?”
“Have they never requited your love?”
“Have you ever thought of giving them up?”
“Yep. Did it too. Was without a doubt the worse mistake I’ve made in me bloody life.”
Summary: Hi, I’m Lily Evans. You know, there are a lot of fics about me out there. I’m flattered that you spend time thinking about me, but sometimes sickened. How could these fics not mention my
bonkers beautiful cat, Missy? And what about my evil and malicious extremely helpful conscience? Or the fact that I make a fool out of myself at every opportunity am unique?
Well, this fic has all of these things. It also has L.O.V.E (I’m the ‘L’), the elite group of
cliquey lovely girls that I am part of. And our rival, the sarcastic cynic also unique Iola Potter (cousin and partner in crime to James). But does it have an actual plot? Of course not Absolutely! And it starts with me getting a detention with Iola (through no fault of my own, of course). And we kind of ... almost ... well, we get on alright. A friendship sparks, shall we say. I have no idea how it happens It is meant to be. But it’s going to take some fighting for if we want to keep it. It would be a lot easier to just stick to what we know, really. We were perfectly happy hating each other. But ... well. I guess you’ll have to find out!
Read this or I’ll curse you Read this and I’ll love you!
Summary: Hermione Granger finds herself in an unusual place, an unusual time for that matter. Through an unintentional mishap, she is tossed right into the mix with James Potter, Remus Lupin, Peter Pettigrew, and Sirius Black.

Thanks to everyone who nominated this story for a Quicksilver Quill, and congratulations to the winners!!
Summary: Sirius was killed by Bellatrix. When he lands headlong at his dead best friend’s feet, he is a little perplexed. All is soon explained, however. He has reached Heaven, and James is here to welcome him. Before he can begin to get used to life in Heaven, he must first “watch his life” on the large screen in front of him, because it will help him understand things better. And so, that’s what he does. From the very beginning, to the very end. You too, can follow him through the ups and downs. Follow him through the highs and the lows. Follow him through the laughter, the pain, and the romance. Follow him through the story of his life. This fic is a tribute to Sirius Black. It is not all marauder-era, although a bulk of it is, and that is why it’s in this category.
Summary: Whoever knew that a couple still went on "dates" after they were married?
Runner-Up in the Best Canon Romance category of the 2007 Quicksilver Quill Awards
For those interested, I'm planning on writing a Prequel to this story. Just thought I'd let everyone know.

Summary: What if, all the world's a stage, and the characters of HP fan fiction are actors?

Dumbledore has been rooted out of retirement after 'dying', James has doubts about Harry's paternity, Remus rants, and Voldemort does a Gilderoy.
In short, mayhem ensues.
These are not Jo's sterling characters. This group of players has been forced to enact some of the most atrocious parts in fan fiction-dom, and they're all primed and ready for the casting grouch.

Also featuring: a certain geometry teacher, Charlie Brown, the actual sparkly hairbrush, and much, much more!
