I'm eighteen, and a freshman in university, studying nursing. I'm a proud Ravenclaw, and I also beta and create banners.
Wonderful ending. Bravo! I look forward to whatever story you have up your sleeve next.
Author's Response: Aw, thanks! Well, Keedie's a painting in Hogwarts so she can crop up whenever I want her to. Stay tuned. Thanks for all your lovely reviews and for sticking with this story til the end! :)
Cliffhanger! Ahh! Please update again soon- I need to know what happens to Keedie!
Author's Response: With only two chapters left after this, it can't be good. ;-)
I was reluctant to read this story at first, because i didn't see how a romance fic involving Tom RIddle could be comprehensible. However, you have amazing talent, as shown through the development of Keedie's character. This story keeps me anxiously waiting for each new chapter, and i love that you have gone out on a limb to write something with a unique approach to the lives of the characters it involves. Wonderful work!
Author's Response: Thank you! It started out as joke and I really loathed Tom Rillde/Voldemort. But then it got serious and now I sort of like him. Please keep reading and reviewing! :-)
I take a deep breath so my voice won’t shake.
“What would you do if we died tomorrow?”
He takes a step away from me, but still keeps me in his arms. “What?”
“What would you do if you knew that we died tomorrow?”
“What kind of question is that?”
“Don’t give me that, James. You know that we are going to die soon. There is no point in pretending that we aren’t.”
James and Lily have a conversation two days before Halloween.
I bawled like a baby while reading this. Beautiful. Best of luck with the QSQ's- you have my vote!
Author's Response: That last sentence made my day! Thank you so much; it really means a lot. Thank you for the compliments and reading and reviewing. :)
What a sweet and sad story. Beautifully written!
Author's Response: Thank you very much. ~Carole~
This is a wonderful analysis of Percy's character, and you've captured it perfectly. Nice work!
Author's Response: thank you for the review. Percy has always been a hard character for me to write. When I got him for the character study, I wasn't absolutely sure I was going to be able to write him accurately and without any bias. I'm really glad that you liked this one-shot of him.
Aw! That's a missing moment that I often forget about, and you wrote it perfectly! So sweet, and very believable. Wonderful job!
This is a beautiful story- brought me to tears. Andromeda is a character that often goes unconsidered when thinking about who was most affected by the war. Your imagery is perfect, and paints a wonderful picture of recovery.
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm glad you liked it.
This story has a very cute plot- you never think about Sirius being the one to hand out advice. Your writing flows smoothly, and your portrayal of the characters is realistic and believable. Nice work!
Author's Response: Thanks so much for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed it!
This is a collection of related one-shots about confusion over Muggle objects. An excerpt from the first chapter, A Contraceptive Controversy:
James Potter was quite brilliant, or at least he’d like to think so. He had some of the best grades in the sixth year- they would probably be the best if he did his homework regularly. The Marauder’s Map had been his idea- even if he wasn’t brilliant, the Map certainly was. He was also an animagus. An (illegal) animagus at sixteen was something brilliant indeed.
So if he was so brilliant, then why was he incapable of identifying the object before him?
It’s not like it was particularly complex: all it was was a little piece of rubber, really. There’s nothing complicated about that, is there? No, not at all.
Hahaha. Cute idea! :]
An interesting take on their deaths. You use wonderful descripition- it sounds like very genuine thoughts on Tonk's part.
Author's Response: Thank you so much. It's really good to know that you liked the way I showed Tonks' thoughts.
Brought tears to my eyes. Beautiful work.
Author's Response: Thanks :)
This story is so intruiging! I was enchanted by 'Troubled Tyrant', and you are very capable of writing unusually convincing pairings. Hope to see another chapter up soon!
Author's Response: Me too! So glad you're enjoying so far :D
Brought tears to my eyes. Beautiful.
Author's Response: That is especially good news, as the prompt for this drabble was "laugh or cry." We were supposed to make the judges laugh or cry. You figured out which one I was going for. ;) Thanks again. I'm glad you liked it.
A war is brewing in the Wizarding world. Hogwarts is not the safe haven it used to be. Students are beginning to consider the unthinkable, desperate to save those they love. The corridors are filled with eager spies who are too young to realise the severity of their decisions.
In the midst of it all, the Marauders are closing in on their last year of schooling. James is learning that letting go is sometimes the only way to move forward. Lily discovers that what she was looking for all along is right in front of her, while Sirius and Remus struggle to keep the group together, each in their own way. And Peter begins to realise that he can be more than a tiny piece of a large puzzle, perhaps the most dangerous epiphany of all.
Sides must be taken, a war must be fought, and prices must be paid—some higher than others. Choices are made that will undoubtedly change the course of the future. And from this darkness, the phoenix must rise.
I love the way you write Sirius- his sense of humor is spot on. Lovely work, and I hope to see another chapter up soon! :]
Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much! Sirius is my favorite character--I'm so happy to hear you think I'm doing him justice :).
This was wonderful! You took a fairly minor, unimpressive character and gave him an entirely convincing, heart-warming backstory and life. Very nice. :]
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I do love Theodore and I'm glad you liked my portrayal of him.
This story is just consise enough that it works really well. Nice work with your stream of consciousness- it sounds very natural. :]
In her seventh year, Katie Bell knew what it was like to fear death. A year later, she learnt what it was like to see it in front of her. Nothing she had ever experienced had prepared her to deal with the aftermath of that. And then he came.
Caught in a whirlwind of Quidditch, heartbreak, and a rivalry, Katie struggled with her jumbled mess of feelings, one of which she hadn't expected but was growing certain that she could never live without.
Oh my freaking Salazar! This story WON TWO 2011 Quicksilver Quill Awards: Best Post-Hogwarts Story and Best Non-Canon Romance Story. *flail*
This (late) update was brought to you by the (belated) birthday of the ever-lovely Hannah / h_vic. She is a star and an excellent friend!
Oooh, I love this pairing! I don't seem to ever find enough of it that's well-written, but this definitely is. I love that you have Oliver calling her "Katie love"- that seems so spot on to his character. Hope to see another chapter up soon! :]
I'm glad you liked what you've seen so far. I started this story with a one-shot in mind for a friend of mine who loves rarepairs and Oliver/Katie, but it sort of took a life of its own.
The next chapter's in the queue and the third chapter is well on its way. Thanks for reading and have a lovely night!
Oooh, I could definitely picture Hermione doing this; writing letters but never sending them. You've captured her emotions here perfectly- could have been written by Jo, I swear. Looking forward to the epilogue! :]
Author's Response: Ooh, what a nice thing to say. Thanks. I'm glad you liked it.
So cute! I like that the bit about Hermione involved their old age, because it always seems like the two of them are focused on while they're young. I also loved Ginny's part- you portrayed her voice very well. I'm excited to see your next "seven people" piece! :]
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm so glad you liked Ginny's part -- it kind of poured out of me and was the very first part I wrote :)
