Hey! I haven't been on this site for nearly two years (which explains why my stories are a little behind), but I am coming back to life! As soon as my schedule allows I will be completely redoing An American In Hogwarts and perfecting the rest of the stories. I am a stickler for grammar and spelling and I recently won a national award for a collection of my poetry. Go check out my stories!

Reviews by Kestrel
 

Summary: A rather dark SS/HG ff that will only be two chapters ... The first chapter isn't that bad, but then the second one will be worse ... set in the gang's seventh year, post-Last Battle. My first fic on here, please review, even if you don't like it ... I like getting criticisms ...

Hi! Ms. Meriadoc Brandybuck (me) recently changed her username to Kestrel. You recently reviewed my story called The Course of True Love Never Did Run Smooth. I just wanted to let you know that it is now on the new username, and I'll update there. I'd love it if you'd re-review!

Oh, and I just wanted to show you the old review you wrote- it was so funny!: "omg I heart this story like whoa... I am a HHHHHHHHHUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGEEEEEEEEEEEE Shakespeare fan, and seeing a fic using stuff like this makes me swoon... plus the fact that its the marauders, who are my almost most favouritest (its a word now...) characters... I frolic forth to read other fics penned by you, and I hope you continue this one... woot... P.S. 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 OUT OF 10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

You made my day with that one!

I thought this very original and funny (in the places that it was meant to be). I try to be original in my plots as well- I'd love it if you'd review my stories! Thanks!

Author's Response: You know what? It's been awhile since I took a good long stretch and sat down through a string of HP stories. I'll give your fics a looky.

 

The Magical Menagerie by Quigley
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 58]

Summary: Forget about Harry, Hermione and Ron. Here come the new team against Voldy! Crookshanks, Hedwig, Trevor and Fawkes! Eventually, they'll probably do something to foil Lord Voldemort's evil plan. But I haven't decided yet.

Hey, this is Ms. Meriadoc Brandybuck, who changed her username. I have several stories. One that is still in queue is a very long chaptered story that has Snape as a very important character; one is an angst about Bellatrix, and there are many more. Thanks!!

I just finished the 2nd chapter, and I think this will actually be fully read by me. Just one thing to point out about the first chapter - where you meant to say 'too' you wrote 'to.' but beyond that it's well-written. P.S. Might you review my stories? I am looking for someone (and it might as well be a member of SPEW) to read some of them and give me their opinions. Thanks!

Also, you need to go back and check capitalisation in that first chapter.

This is Ms. Meriadoc Brandybuck. I changed my username. I shall be deleting the stories off of my old username and putting them on the new; do you think you could re-review them? I hate losing 41 reviews on one of my stories. Oh, well.

 

Summary: Snape and Hermione begin to experience confusion and, after a few drinks, (ok, a few bottles) Snape does something Hermione nver expected. Unfinished, of course.

The Second War by HPotter7
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 84]

Summary: With the ever-growing threat of Lord Voldemort and secrets of the past that could tear Harry apart, Harry’s six year will be like no other. More attacks on muggles and wizards then ever before as Voldemort gains back the power he once had. Harry will make a decision that will change not only his life, but also everyone’s around him. He will have to choose between what is right and what is easy...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I've finally updated! Now that it's finally summer I'll have more time to write! I've submitted my new chapter and I hope it will be out soon. I really need a beta because I can't get a hold of my last one, so feel free to volunteer!

This story was written Pre-HBP so it's my own storyline!

Hello! Thanks for reviewing my story. I like to review the stories of those who have reviewed mine. I liked your story, and I find myself writing the beginning to a very long review. I have a few comments/suggestions to make: Excerpt: On his forehead lie a lightning shaped scar, not just any scar, a scar that marked a curse. I found that it is more correct and the sentence flows better if you replace the first comma with a semi-colon. In the remaining chapters I found numerous mistakes; please don't be mad at me for pointing them out but I like helping people correct their stories. I hope you see this as a helpful act rather than a poitning out of flaws. Most of the mistakes involved missing apostrophes (') or incorrect contractions. I am pointing out a few examples below. Excerpt: Dear Ron, Some strange things are happening here, I need you contact any member of the advance guard. I wish I could say more, but I don’t have much time. If you’re at snuffles home please show this note to in the Order. Thank You. Harry The letter should be written as this: Dear Ron, Some strange things are happening here. I need you contact any member of the Advance Guard. I wish I could say more, but I don’t have much time. If you’re at Snuffles' home please show this note to the Order. Thank You. Harry However, I couldn't figure out what the last bit was supposed to mean. "please show this note to in the Order" could mean "please show this note to anyone in the Order" or "please show this note to the Order." “Dudley, I was wandering if you could share your nightmare with us?” Dumbledore said quietly. The sentence should contain 'wondering,' not 'wandering.' Over all I LOVE your detailing, and with a bit of beta work it could be a nice story. P.S. I was very touched by your review on my story 'Luna's Life.' I have more one-shots that are in queue or are plot bunnies in my head. I hope you will read them. Also! I'm excited! My story Bellatrix in the Dark/Angst section just got accepted. I think it's my best one-shot and I would love to have you be my first reviewer! The rest of my one shots' summaries are below: Title: Bellatrix Category: Dark/Angst Title: Feathers Category: Historical Title: Luna's Life Category: I think you know by now! And I have 2 chapter stories and 2 poems. I think you have a great potential as not many people can detail as well as you. 8/10, for the detailing; plus, everyone who has the guts to show their work for critique deserves recognition.

Author's Response: Jesus! You are good. I need to hit myself over the head. I'm going to fix my errors after I go and cry in the corner for half of an hour.

Summary: It’s Harry Potter’s Seventh Year in Hogwarts, and Lord Voldemort is close to overthrowing good once and for all. He’s got it all: a goblin desk, Albus Dumbledore’s quill, one billion, two thousand, six hundred and ninety-eight slaves and a secretary…not to mention the entire world. It’s time to put himself into the history books properly - as the evil genius he is. Unfortunately, Lord Voldemort has a bad case of writer’s block…with hilarious consequences.

Summary: It’s Harry’s sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and once again there is a new Defence Against the Dark Arts Teacher, and Snape likes her almost as much as he likes The Boy Who Lived, but why is the new professor so interested in Harry?

It’s going to be another interesting year for Harry and his friends, and he’s going to realise that he might not be as alone as he thought and in more ways than one..

This story is newly edited as of 25/3/2009!!

The sequel to this fic has been posted, it is titled Harry Potter and the Unspeakable Power. The spin off stories One Life Owed and The Night That Started It All are also available.
