UPDATE (12/7/11): Newest chapter posted. Let us hope next one doesn't take me a year.
OMGodric, a cliffie! The suspense will kill us! So update soon, hear me?! Good chapter, though! :)
Author's Response: I hear you! Thank you!
Summary: What does Lord Voldemort do in his spare time? Well, that's an excellent question. Who would have known that the Dark Lord has a blog? (He also has a loyal following of readers, most of whom are Death Eaters and who post their comments.) Voldemort dispenses advice on everything from murder methods to germ protection to Power Rangers to shoes, and gives an account of the life of an evil overlord. But is he posting too much personal information online? And will Harry read it and find out more about the Dark Lord than Voldemort ever intended? Read and see.
WARNING: Extremely OOC behaviour from almost all.
RUNNER-UP in the 2007 Quicksilver Quills Awards for Best Humour fic! Also nominated like 21 times, because apparently my readers are as insane as I am!
V. funny! I love the cutie voldiepoo
Author's Response: Thanks! He is a bit adorable, isn\'t he?
Summary: After a potion goes awry, Draco finds himself as the newly appointed babysitter of one Hermione Granger, age: 4. As if that wasn't humiliating enough, his wand is confiscated by Potter and he is forced to do everything the dreaded Muggle way.
Note to my readers: This story has been on hiatus forever due to a variety of factors. I do hope to finish it some day, but don't hold your breath. Also, this is NOT a Dramione nor will I change it to be one. Lastly, I am in the process of rewriting this story so bear with me.
awwwwww.... It's very cute!
Author's Response: Thanks.
Summary: Ria is a Muggleborn starting her first year at Hogwarts with virtually no knowledge of the wizarding world whatsoever. (sounds fun, huh?) Join her as she makes (insane) friends, learns how to do magic, and discovers things about herself that were once hidden.
Chapter 5 is up, please review because I'm getting lonely.
Nicey story!!!!! : )
Author's Response: Thanks! =) ~megan~
IS PUNITA HARRY'S DAUGHTER? I loooove it!!!!!
Author's Response: Haha, no, but that\'s a smart idea... no, Punita\'s a full blood Punjabi (she\'s Indian) so no, she\'s not Harry\'s daughter. But wouldn\'t that be interesting... Thanks for the review! ~megan~
Summary: It's the sequel to "The Dark Lord's Blog," guys! (And girls... and, I don't know, gender-neutral people and centaurs and walruses and parameciums and shrubs and stuff.)
Several months have passed since Filch came into possession of Voldemort's magical powers, and he has taken over Hogwarts.
With Filch serving as The Dark Lord Snoogerblossom, the position of Hogwarts caretaker/janitor is open. Seeing as Voldemort wants his magical powers back, he and his extremely attractive new sidekick, Mungo Phelps, go undercover at Hogwarts, with Mungo posing as a transfer student and Voldemort posing as the new janitor. Wacky high-jinks ensue.
Join Voldemort as he tries to get back his magic, kill Harry Potter, steal Gryffindor's sword to make a shiny new Horcrux, romance Minerva McGonagall, discover Sirius's secret to becoming a chick magnet, and swallow a teaspoon of his pride to mop up spills the Muggle way and wear an unflattering uniform! WARNING: Extremely silly and very out-of-character.
If you haven't read "The Dark Lord's Blog," well, what are you doing? GO READ IT NOW! Just click on my author name and you'll be directed to my chaotic author page, which lists all my wacky stories.
This is on hiatus, dudes. Ooh! But it was twice nominated by nice (and insane) people for the Best Humour Fic award in the Quicksilver Quills thingy!
Also, some wonderful loony nominated Mungo Phelps for Best Male OC, making him if possible even more conceited! (No one had the heart to tell Mungo that he was designed as an example of a terrible OC.)
EXCITING NEWS! "The E-Journal of an Evil Janitor" is now continued as a Twitter blog! Go to Twitter dot com and find thedarklord666. Voldy's waiting!
I do quite like this, although it has been a long time since an update... However I think it is absoulutely fantabulous and awsome and cool and rockin' and stylin' and neato and fergalicous(it's hot hot)! So, anyways, keep up the awsome work and continue being awsome and cool!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I\'ve never had anything of mine been called absoulutely fantabulous and awsome and cool and rockin\' and stylin\' and neato and fergalicous all in the same sentence before!
Summary: London: Four murders have taken place under bizarre circumstances, for what seems to be an equally bizarre reason.
Harry, a happily wedded man with a wonderful wife and a cute daughter, is an Auror at the Ministry of Magic and is now given a new case to solve with Ron and four other Aurors. Incidentally, the four Aurors include Ginny, Harryâ€™s â€˜schoolboy crushâ€™; and it turns out to be much more than a crush when Harry sees her again. Whatâ€™s more is that Harry is working upon a case that seems to connect to him directly. And once again, it opens up old fears: fears of losing loved ones.
Ron, on the other hand, seems to be tired of Hermione. Tempers are running high and fights are breaking out more often than usual. Are they really falling apart? Or can they sort this out before it is too late?
Then there is the case itself. Who is trustworthy, and who is not? Who is deadly enough to murder four people in cold blood?
Indulge into the gut-wrenching action, combined with warm romance and tingling suspense; while I tell you a story of love, ambition and obsessionâ€¦ a story of what those killer instincts can do. EDIT: MAJOR revamping going on, with regard to plot, characterisation, and general style of writing. I would urge you not to read this until I've removed this notice because I wasn't very good six years ago, and this is as bad as I was. *Places traffic cones*
Yay! You updated! I was so scared for Parvati, and I feel so bad for Harry! I think you portrayed Ginny very well.
Cant wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! :)
awww.... Ron is so nice!
Author's Response: Yep, Ron is really nice! I love him sooo much! Oooh, I\'m jealous of Hermione! :D
Summary: WARNING! This story contains a jingle-bell antler headband, a shower of potatoes, boy/girl mushiness, underwear karaoke, family trouble, an excessively adorable werewolf, death, the song "Werewolves of London," betrayal, and the word 'Jordan' five times in a row near the beginning of chapter seven.
Twenty-one years after Voldemort's defeat, five fourth-years are faced with a new threat. Will all of the five stay true to the light side? Will they all emerge whole in the end? Will Jordan Potter ever get a life? You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll gasp, you'll sigh! Part one in a trilogy!
Well, after much deliberation and consideration, I've decided to submit my future-gen trilogy! This particular installment is three years old, so it's definitely different from my current writing style, but I'm quite fond of the characters.
DH is disregarded. It's a total coincidence that one of the main characters is named Ted Lupin.
Starring Quicksilver Quills 2008 Best Male Original Character runner-up Jordan Potter, Best Female Original Character nominees Ivy Potter, Haley Potter, and Emma Weasley, and Best Male Original Character nominee Ted Lupin!
Five times nominated (once for each member of Potter's Pentagon!) for the Best Post-Hogwarts story in the 2007 Quicksilver Quills Awards, and nominated for Best Post-Hogwarts story in the 2008 Quicksilver Quill Awards...
Who are Ted's siblings? Anerway, great chappie!
Author's Response: Thanks! Ted has an older brother named Nathaniel and a sister named Christina, both of whom are grown. You will see more of them in the third book of the trilogy.
Summary: Marty Price works for The Cause, which involves several campaigns and petitions on a weekly basis. It has become common knowledge within Hogwarts that if you see her coming towards you with a clipboard, you should turn and walk the other way. Or perhaps deny all grasp of the English language. And if this isn’t eccentric enough, there’s also her obsessive written observations of four boys in her year, which will one day make a rather interesting book ...
Remus Lupin, meanwhile, has always been a little different, too. Poor, sweet Remus Lupin is, to the casual observer, the picture of a sensible, hard working student. However, he has three friends who have done more for him than anyone knows and they have done this because of his troubled past, troubled present and troubled future. Why the gloominess? Because Remus Lupin just so happens to be a werewolf.
So what could these two possibly have in common? And how can their stories possibly connect?
Runner-up for the 2008 Best Marauder Era QSQ.
I know someone named Jemima Lamb! Anyway, love the chapter and the story in general! Update soon!
Author's Response: Wow! What a coincidence! It was just a random name. Pretty cool, though. Glad you\'re enjoying the story!
Author's Response: Umm ... you didn\'t use the the less than 3 thing to make a heart did you? Because if you did, that would explain where the rest of this review went: into a big pit of html coding. If you just decided to type a random letter, then, um ... yeah. Have fun with that.
Dear Mister Snape,

Deena’s Magical Day Spa
Ha ha ha...
Author's Response: Thank you? Heh heh heh . . .
Ha ha ha...
Author's Response: Whoops! Double post--er--review.
Summary: This is book two in the "Potter's Pentagon" trilogy. Read "Potter's Pentagon: The Five" first, myesss? Cool.
WARNING: This story contains French people, an internal monologue about a blue orange, adolescent facial hair, good old-fashioned snogging, superstitious truck drivers, a portrait who calls everyone "Mavis," a zoo break-in, some very strange clothes, romantic conflict galore, and Ron Weasley's caffeine addiction. And worst of all, Professor Zabini!
Hogwarts is hosting the Triwizard Tournament, and when one of the members of Potter's Pentagon is selected to represent the school, much excitement ensues. Simultaneously, elections are being held for Minister of Magic, and things are getting busy at the Ministry.
Not to mention the fact that Jordan's made a new Muggle friend without informing her of the itty-bitty fact that he's magical, Haley has found an enchanted diary of dubious origin, Ted's met a werewolf from Beauxbatons, and Emma... well, Emma's not having a good year.
And what exactly is Ivy up to, anyway?
Everyone has secrets. But in the end, the truth will have to come out.
Starring Best Male Original Character runner-up Jordan Potter, Best Female Original Character Nominees Ivy Potter, Emma Weasley, Haley Potter, and Giorgi Anderson, and Best Male Original Character nominee Ted Lupin! Nominated for Best Post-Hogwarts story in the 2008 Quicksilver Quill Awards!
Wow! A wonderful sequel. I can't wait to read more!
Author's Response: Ohhhh, thank you! I should be updating very soon.
Marina must be frozen, which is why her brain isn't functioning properly. Also, if Ivy studies much more her brains are going to leak out of her nose. Thanks for updating! MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT!
Author's Response: MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU, TOO! Yep, that explains Marina\'s lapse of judgment. I\'ll definitely go with that. (Or that she and Emma are too similar, and this was likely to happen eventually.)
I feel so bad for Ivy. If I were Haley, I would tickle her until she laughed just to get her to smile.
OMGness! Okay, so I read your authors page and you said that you're a fan of Discworld, right? Well, there's one called "The Truth"! Was that a coinky-dink? Or am I just too weirdish?
ANYWAY, my fave OCs are Emma, Tyrone, and Teddy. My least favorites are Ivy and Apple. (Sorry, Ivy! You're just too... I don't know... ish.) I relate to Emma the most. She rox! I think that's all. Wait, one more thing! You're the banana king, Charlie!
Author's Response: Well, I actually discovered Discworld when one of my friends told me that there was a book called "The Truth." You have sharp eyes. By the way, my least favourite is Ivy, too... I guess it shows.
I AM THE BANANA KING!
First: great chapter. Next: WEIRD DREAM. And finally, was Tyrone a good kisser?
Huggles from Muggles!
Author's Response: Thanks! I seem to remember that Tyrone was an extremely good kisser, but he must have been rather hampered by the fact that I\'m really not a good kisser. As for Tyrone\'s kissing habits, well, you\'ll find out more about those in... well, the third Potter\'s Pentagon book and \"Pride and Pre-juiced Plums.\" *Grin*
