Ok...bio, bio, bio....
Well, Iím a Harry Potter fanaticÖI think thatís sort of a given, though. Iím mainly interested in Lily/James stuff, so you should expect mostly that category from me. I spend basically my entire life either reading or writing. Oh, also, if occasionally you see an Authorís Note from me that seems completely random and somewhat spaztastic, just regard it as a normal circumstance and ignore it. That should be about all.
Summary: One night will always be remembered in the world of Harry Potter. There was one night that started it all — a Dark Lord was defeated, a friendship was broken, and a child was left an orphan, yet hailed as a hero at the same time. The night of All Hallow’s Eve is recounted once again in this tale.
I know what you are thinking. Anyone would think the same thing. You want to hear the story, the tale, from the very beginning. You want to know exactly what happened on that Halloween night of 1981.
Very well. I can tell you about the one night that I will never forget — the night of 31 October, nearly sixteen years ago.
Wow. I have to say, I thought this was wonderful! I've never even considered something from Voldemort's point of view, and I though that was incredibly interesting. You had a wonderful grip on the idea of what's happening to Lily and James, and how they would react. Again, I think this is fantastic! Great job!
Summary: "Albus Dumbledore aimed his wand at the Pensieveís liquid depths and twitched his arm upwards. Ten ghostly figures slowly emerged from the liquid, their bodies spun out of the translucent matter. The Gryffindor Class of 1978..."
We all know how this tale ends, but how does it begin? Did Lily hate James from Day One? Did James fall head over heels the moment he first laid eyes on Lily? How did Remus feel about the whole thing? Who let Peter slip through the cracks? And what exactly happens when Sirius gets hold of some Time-Release Dungbombs?
The Marauders' years at Hogwarts were marked by internal demons, external tensions, and whispers from the shadows growing steadily louder. By intertwining lives in the midst of danger. By powerful love and a whole lot of laughter. This is their story, a tale of cauldrons and comrades.
this is one of my favorite stories! i'm so excited to read more, so...keep updating! i can't wait to find out what happens with the ruin! i love this; love it, love it, love it!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I\'m so glad you like the story. There\'s more about the ruin on the way, and the next chapter is almost done! :)
Summary: 2009 QSQ Awards Winner for Best Chaptered Canon Romance
Before the chosen one was ever born, his parents had to meet, fall in love, and defy Voldemort three times. Easier said than done. Things were never easy for Harry Potter's parents, but it gets a whole lot harder when Death Eaters kidnap Lily. This is the story of Lily and James, the trials they face, and how James finally wins Lily's heart. (pre-Deathly Hallows)
“I’ll always protect you.”
No! No fair! How could you do that to me?!?!?! Evil cliff hanger, eeeevvvviiiilllllll!! This story is absolutely fantastic. I love it. So much. It's beyond amazing. You are a spectacular author. Update, update, update! Please! Soon!
Author's Response: Thanks very much! It was rather horrible of me, I know, but I can't help myself -- I'm a cliffhanger addict! I'll try and update soon, I pinky swear!
oh. my. god. i can't even describe how much i absolutely love this story. it's amazing! you need to update soon...i'm dying here! not literally, of course....
but anyway, i think it is absitively posilutley fantabulous! you are an amazing author! snaps for you! yay! ok, i'm kinda rambling now. anyway, i love it!
Author's Response: Rambling in reviews is never frowned on -- its still a review! Thanks very much, I\'m glad you like the story! And actually, an update should be very soon, as I\'m already almost finished writing the next chapter!
Oh. My. God. Oh my god! I totally knew it, too! I thought Ted was a Death Eater the second James started suspecting something about him! But still, I hoped it wasn't true...oh my god!
And he stabbed Lily! AH! OH MY GOD! Is James going to come save her? He has to! Please please please update soon!
Author's Response: Did you guess it? If you did, good for you! I had been trying to drop hints that Ted wasn't exactly a great person. . . . Most of the reviewers seem to think that James will be the one to rescue her, but you'll just have to wait and find out as soon as I can update! (Which will hopefully be very soon!) Thanks for the review.
Summary: The first war with Voldemort is at it's worst, and everything is going wrong for Lily Potter. Her sister is blaming her for their parents' deaths. Her friends are dead or in danger. Nine out of ten nights, she doesn't even know where James is, if he's even alive. She can't confide in anyone. She is just about ready to give up, when suddenly she is handed new hope -- in the most unexpected way. Originally written for the New Year's Myth and Magic challenge. *one-shot*
Wow. That was really good! I loved how you brought in the mythology. I'm a big fan of it myself, so I thought this was really creative and cool. I also thought the way you kind of changed from memory to reality to fantasy and back to reality again was awesome. It flowed really nicely. Awesome job, and great story!
Author's Response: Thanks! I really love mythology as well; I\'m glad you liked how I incorporated it in. :)
Summary: The first war with Lord Voldemort is constantly getting worse; people are dying left and right, dementors are attacking people on the Death Eaters' orders, and nobody knows who is trustworthy anymore. Lily Evans, in her seventh year at Howarts, does not want to be a part of the war -- but some things are unavoidable.
Wow. That's all I can really say. This was so sad, but so incredible. I feel so bad for James!
Author's Response: Thank you!
I love James too! He's so sweet! I feel so bad for everyone, though! Life sucks sometimes. Poor Lily. Poor James.
Author's Response: =[ Poor future Potters.\r\n\r\nThank you!
Wow. This really sets the tone for the story, and it's written really well. I especially love the ending; that last sentence has me hooked. Now I shall read the next chapter! Amazing job!
Author's Response: Thank you! Enjoy (:
Still amazing, still spectacular. I am really impressed. Your description is fantastic; I can really feel the atmosphere, the despair. Which sounds depressing, but it sheds excellent light onto your writing...way to go!
Author's Response: Thank you!
I disagree with you; I don't think this chapter is boring. I liked it a lot, actually. I really enjoyed that ending piece with Lily and James. It was a good way to end it, on a light note in the midst of all the problems that they're facing. I also have one question: is it physically possible to fit a whole chicken leg in your mouth? :)
Author's Response: Hmm. Maybe like a little chicken leg? Actually no. Wait do you mean the entire leg, including the thigh? Or just the drumstick? Because the latter, maybe. I\'m thinking people in certain professions could do it, hinthint.
I liked it being from James's point of view, it gives the story a nice twist. I also like him getting jealous...so cute!
Author's Response: Thanks (:
I really like this chapter. I wouldn't say it's your best one, but it definitely defines some of the relationships and stuff. Also, I have one suggestion. Toward the beginning of the story, when Lily accidently mutters "my fault" out loud, I thought it went a bit fast. James asked her what she was talking about, and it just seemed to me like she was a little too willing to say. Maybe just add another sentence about him pestering her? Just a suggestion. Otherwise it's wonderful.
Author's Response: Thanks for the suggestion - I added in just a couple lines. See if you like that better? (: Thank you!
I loved this chapter. I can't even really give you a concrete reason why...I just loved it. My favorite line, I have to say, was one of Marly's. "I think it physically hurts him when you stay up all night." I just love it. It's striking, to me, and it definitely shows how much James cares. Excellent job!
Author's Response: Thank you! (:
Oooooh...intense...I love it!
Author's Response: Thanks :D
I absolutely love this chapter! It's so dramatic and fun to read. I loved the prank the Marauders played on Snape; very original, very funny. Nice job!
Author's Response: Thank you :D
Oh my god! That's so sad! I really liked it though. You're a fantastic writer.
Author's Response: Thank you (:
I'm really enjoying your way of having Lily argue with herself. It's very entertaining, and it shows her emotions really well. I've said this before, and I'll say it again...you are an amazing writer.
Author's Response: Thanks so much (:
"Erm - would you look at that, the sky is blue!" Best line ever. I love this chapter. Especially the end, with all the Marauders in Lily's kitchen. Amazing job.
Author's Response: Thanks :D
