My name, as it says above, is Bethan, and I'm 14, and live in the U.K., and according to people, because I've told you that you will hunt me down and kill me. ARRRRRGHHHH!!
Thanks to everyone who read my first story 'Badger, Raven, Serpent and Lion' I am eternally endebted to all of you!
My next story should soon appear if all goes well, it's Marauder Era, which is incidentally, my favourite era.
Update: The Marauders story (Remus Lupin's diary) is now up, and chapter 2 of both should be here shortly.
Favourite Characters: REMUS JOHN LUPIN (I love him dearly), Sirius Black, Luna Lovegood, Kreacher, Harry, Ron, Hermione, Dumbledore, Snape, Flitwick and Stan Shunpike.
Most Evil Characters: VOLDEMORT, Bellatrix, Fenrir Greyback.
Character I would most like to beat around the head with a large plank of wood: Cornelius Fudge.
Fav Book: Deathly Hallows (DUH!)
Fav book other than Harry Potter: Wuthering Heights
THE REASON WHY MY PENNAME IS WHAT IT IS WHEN IT SHOULD BE SOMETHING TO DO WITH REMUS LUPIN:
I gave myself my penname when I was writing a fic that referencing 'the dog star' in some vague way in it and I thought that I was being dead clever (I wasn't) in calling myself this. As it happens, that particular story never got accepted because, quite frankly, it wasn't very good, so now I'm stuck with a name that I don't want. Alas.
And yes, I am a member of my own favourite author thing. That shows how many friends I have. *sniff*
GIVE ME HUGS!!!
give TheDogStar more *HUGS*

Summary: Hullo! I'm Lily Evans, and I'm starting my seventh year at Hogwarts soon. I'm Head Girl with James Potter, which I'm secretly thrilled about, emphasis on the secretly. Seriously secretly, like even to me, kind of. Well, I must be off!
Hey! Lily! Oh, sorry, so rude of me, I'm Anna, Anna Boothe. Lily's uh, hold on let me grab my trunk, it's just slipped out of my fingers. Where was I? Oh yes, Lily's best friend. We're inseperable, really. Like two peas in a pod and whatnot. Where is she, anyway? Er, well it was nice meeting you, I've got to go catch the train!
Oi! Did you just see Evans? I've been looking for her and I thought I just saw her here. I'm rather excited about being Head Boy with her; it'll give me a chance to show her the real James Pot--
What are you going on about, Prongs? Why are you even listening to this nutter? We've got to catch the train. Probably talking to you about Evans, am I right? He would talk to a tree about Evans if he could. Moony, Wormtail, help me get this starry-eyed git onto the train before it leaves without us...
You two are helpless, don't you think, Pete?
More helpless than two Grindylows out of water...
Remus gonna get his own, special POV chapter? Please! If they all get one I am looking foward to the Marauders' ones!
Author's Response: His own special POV chapter is numero 4! Get excited!
Summary: All wars are fought for a reason, whether honourable or ignoble. This one started over an umbrella...
I really enjoyed this! I think it is most probably the best Remus and Tonks fic (not read all of them yet) and all of the swearing and such was in character, so it didn't put you off when you read it.
I don't know if there be an other stories by the same author, but I will definately check.
I want Tonk's umbrella....
Summary: Blaise is misunderstood by most, and Hogwarts is his only regular home. Not that being a Slytherin is easy. His mother won't tell him what he wants to know. And worse, her penchant for rich husbands- many of them- puts him in the public eye far more than he'd like. Does anyone know who his father is? And why are all these Death Eaters on his case? Can't they just leave him alone already? Blaise isn't going to ask again, so pay attention, Dark Lord!
Follow him through the major complications of his life as he gets nearer to finding out a dark secret he never could have imagined.
Thanks go to Dara for being an awesome beta! Chapter 7 now up!
Hi! I like this story and i'm looking foward to further chapters... It's interesting how you took a character that we didn't know much about and given him a proper personality. It's interesting that he's not 'typical' Slytherin as well, I eagerly anticipate your next chapter!!!
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! Yeah, I like those neglected characters, there\'s just more room for twists that you have less of when writing about main characters like Harry, Ginny, etc.
Summary: In which Tonks burns some letters and Lupin makes an incorrect guess.
I really like this. It's sad, but sort of sweet at the same time.
Summary: When Harry was seven years old, he and Dudley were invited to a costume party by a girl in their class. While Dudley wanted to be a soldier, Harry wanted to dress up as a Wizard. As you can imagine, that went down well.
This fabulously amazingful! AAAAAAH!!!! Harry wants to be a wizard! That is rather sweet!
Author's Response: Thanks very much - I\'m glad you liked it! xx
Summary: Lily Evans never had any intention to spend a day at Hogsmeade with James Potter...of course, things don't always turn out as planned.
A short, sweet story about James and Lily's first unofficial date.
Winner of the Hufflepuff Valentine's Day Challenge
That is a really good story. I didn't feel to bogged down in description and the characters were just right... Who was Remus' date...?
Author's Response: Thanks. Although, it is sort of my style to bog people down in discription, this story is just an exception, lol. But I\'m glad you liked it.
Summary: Fred and George persuade a very young Ron to make an Unbreakable Vow with them.
Thanking you very muchly for this story! Poor old Ron! Sorry, poor little Ron...
Author's Response: Thank you very muchly for reviewing! :D
Summary: Why Hermoine really *wasn't* sure that Ron could pass a Muggle driving test.
Thank you sooooooo much for this fic! I loved it! Poor Hermione....
Summary: Sybill Trelawney's Inner Eye foretells that her first day of teaching at Hogwarts will be horrible. Is it right?
Won second place in the extra credit category for the Autumn Challenge in 2007.
I really liked this story because it captured Trelawney so perfectly, and I must admit I feel sorry that she can't do magic... though now I think about it she never has done any in the books... not sure about McGonagall using the word 'gotten' ...
Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked Trelawney\'s characterisation. :) Thanks for pointing out that bit of McGonagall\'s dialogue. I\'ve changed it now. Thanks for the review! :)
Summary: The innocence of childhood, the love in friendship. Lily finds Severus alone one night and tries to find out what is bothering him. One-Shot Song-Fic to Carrie Underwood's version of "I'll Stand by You".
Brought a tear to my eye... it's sad to think that they won't be friends when they grow older. The characters were perfect and I really felt sorry for Snape.
Author's Response: That\'s what I thought as I was writing it - it made me feel horrible, the way they parted... especially when Severus seemed so overjoyed at finding a friend in the first place. Thanks for the review!
Summary: First take one ghoul. Stun it, and stuff it into pyjamas before it has time to struggle. Add red hair. Cover the final product liberally in large painful boils. What you produce using this method should be a perfect replica for a Weasley with spattergroit - and if Fred and George were right, better looking than Ron - and the rest was straightforward.
I would so buy a ghoul in pajamas... you should sell that idea to the Harry Potter marketing people...
lol great story!!!!!!!
Summary: Remus, Peter, Sirius, and James were best friends, but this didn't last forever. The story of the Marauder's summed up in a poem...
This is a very good poem, but there is one mistakish thing that has not been mentioned...
He married Nymphadora Tonks
And gave birth to a son,
Surelt it should be 'who gave birth to a son' or 'and they had a son' otherwise it sounds like Remus bave birth, which shouldn't be happening...
Still, I thought it was brilliant, that was the only thing I could find that hadn't already been mentioned.
Author's Response: Yes, you\'re right, but I was referring to the two of them together having a son. I think I\'ll change this anyway because it does sound a bit strange. Thanks for the advice...I\'m new here.
Summary: Dumbledore has a very good idea. True, it may be termed as 'illegal,' but when it concerns the happiness and futures of two sixth-years, James Potter and Lily Evans, 'illegal' isn't really important, is it? His portraits agree.
And while it could be said that two inexperienced students should never be responsible for a mass construction project and the hosting of an international festival... well, the teachers of Hogwarts have never really paid attention to propreity, have they?
This is awesome! you got all the characters just right too!
