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!
Summary: Hermione has her heartbroken and finds love somewhere completly unexpected.
I liked this a lot... I just suggest that you space the paragraphs now that it's complete. Ron didn't seem the most in character in the flashback, but it's not like anything like that's happened in canon, so there's no telling what he'd be like. This may seem weird but I'm glad you chose George and not Fred. George seems to be a bit more... erm... a bit nicer... I don't know... 8/10. Good job.
Author's Response: glad you enjoyed it! as for the spacing, the mods won't accept it if it's spaced differently
This is very good so far... I have been experimenting with a witch/Muggle pairing also! What can I say; that type of pairing is original and cool, and I'm surprised that more people haven't written it. You've seemed to keep Hermione in character, and Krum's letter was written well. 9/10. P.S. Might you review my Muggle pairing? Just click on my bio. Thanks!
Author's Response: thanx...and yes, i'll be sure to check out ur story!
Ok, just to let you know... I checked my Ms. Meriadoc Brandybuck stories (I changed usernames to Kestrel), and you reviewed the story. So, my new username's Kestrel and those stories are going to be deleted and you can find them in my new username. Thanks!
Summary: Chapter 2 is up!
A family of purebloods, with a non-Slytherin daughter, how can she expect to be treated in a situation like that? All of Britannia’s family has been in Slytherin, everyone except her. Between her bratty brother, her pushover mother, and her demanding father, how could she have time for friends?
This seems like a really good beginning.. The only thing I'd suggest is that you space in between the flashback and the regular text. Just add a few more breaks and I think it'd flow better. P.S. Might you review my stories? It has been so slow that I think I might cry... : ) And the queue is taking forever... Oh, well. Que sera sera.
Author's Response: Thank you! I will certainly review your stories. Que sera sera...Whatever will be will be. Spanish...those were the days. haha.
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! P.S. I really hope that you continue with this story. I really do.
Wow.. random and creative. I loved it! Thanks for reviewing my story, and I have numerous others in different categories that you might like (including more poetry). Thanks again!
Author's Response: thanks very much! no prob, I love reviewing, It makes people happy :)
Summary: ~One shot~
On the night of December, a young lady wakes up to a strange feeling. Having the house to herself, she finds out some big news that will surely change her life. She's holding a life within her.
I had read this before; I didn't review it, I think I didn't have time. Now I'll do the story justice. This was so sweetly written! The descriptiveness... just right. 8/10.
Author's Response: Thank you for reviewing and the 8! You are so nice. :)
Summary: In order for us to rejoin our loved ones, we must sometimes give all we have... One-shot.
I really have been loving one-shots and I think yours is really great. 9/10. P.S. If you like readin one-shots that's all I ever write... Please review! It's been really really slow on here!
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you liked it! I'll try to check your story out!
Summary: A villanelle on the life story of Tom Riddle. Quote from a friend: "You just made a new Voldemort!"
This is, I do believe, one of the better poems here. I like the style, it's very different than the rest of the poetry. It's going in my favorites. P.S. I'm not related to Kestrel5 below me. Just a strange coincidence! P.P.S. I have a poem on her, free verse, in case you'd like to check it out. I also have 5 stories including another poem in queue, and 2 stories online.
Author's Response: I'll check them out. Thanks!
Hi! Ms. Meriadoc Brandybuck (me) recently changed her username to Kestrel. You recently reviewed my story called Might I Modify Your Muggle Mind. 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!
Summary: This is me playing around with different types of poems. (what happens when I get extremely bored...) Chapter one: rictameter.
Ms. Meriadoc Brandybuck (me) recently changed her username to Kestrel. You recently reviewed my story called An American in Hogwarts. 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! P.S. I'm having a bit of trouble with it, so the online chapter's a bit different.
Author's Response: okie dokie
Good... Once again you know I'm not big on the rhymed poetry... But I think this was actually pretty good. 7/10. (Just to let you know, 7/10 is actually pretty good for me. I usually give between 6/10 - 9/10.) Thanks for reviewing! My stories were getting pretty lonely with only one review! Thanks so much!
Author's Response: Well, I guess 7/10 isn't TOO bad. Yeah, I felt kinda bad for your stories. It's only fair, you review mine, I review yours. Deal?
Summary: A quick, descriptive, one-shot, rhyming poem about a championship Quidditch match between Gryffindor and Slytherin. This one decides it all!
I really loved this poem, and give it a 9 - the absolute highest that I give! I loved the detailing... P.S. Might you review my poems? One is online and the other's been in queue for absolute ages... Thanks!
Author's Response: Superb, I'm glad you liked it. I'm going to review your poem right now, as soon as I get past the log-in issues. Thanks for the review.
You know... It's almost like people are afraid to read things out of the ordinary... you story is giving off a creative vibe. I'm surprised that there's only one review... A trick: The way to get more people to read your story is to add chapters. A: because it puts your story higher up on the 'recently added' list, and B: most people don't want to read something when there's only a prologue. They get bored, you see! But I'm glad I found this. this is unique. P.S. Might you review my stories? Click on my bio. Also on my bio there is a list of my upcoming stories, with summaries... if you're interested!
Author's Response: Thanks you so much for the review. Sorry for the really late response. My stupid computer crashed not too long after I posted the first bit and has only been working again for the last couple of days. I'm so mad because I lost all of the story that I had been working on. So getting the next chapter up will take just a bit. Anyways...I'm glad you like the prologue and I'm even happier that you think it's unique. It's true, people do get freaked by something that isn't somewhat cliche! Thanks for the advise as well. I will keep that in mind as I write on. And concerning your stories, I would be glad to read them. Reviews are coming your way! Thanks again for the review! I hope you like the next parts...
Summary: This is a one shot fic taking place on the summer before Hermione's Sixth Year.The struggle about whether she should tell her parents the truth continues, as a death happens while she is still trapped in her home
Reveiws much appreciated!
Happy, Happy, Happy! You enjoy writing missing moments and character emotions! Yes! That's basically all I write! I am pretty excited because everyone on here seems to only write the average Marauder/Trio fics. OK, OK, Kestrel, come down. I think I need to review your story. Here goes: I think it has a lot of promise and potential. I think that (of course, I always think this, even in my Lupin fic I dislike it, and I wrote it) when you wrote Hermione's thoughts as she sat angrily in her room: EXCERPT: They couldn’t stop her from going back, they couldn’t! She wouldn’t even let them try! was kind of OOC, and a bit cliche. But overall I'd like to see where it goes. P.S. Might you review my fanfics? Thanks! And I have a Hermione one-shot (which also involves her mother, too) that you might enjoy, but it is only half-finished. I should have the summaries of the upcoming stories of mine in my bio in about 2 hours, or sooner. Thanks again!
Author's Response: Yay! Finally a review! Thanks. Yeah, that bit is a bit cliche, but I don't see how it's OOC. Missing Moments are pretty much all I write too, though I'm trying some other things out. Gottalove those missing moments. I'll check out your fics. Cool name, btw.
Summary: Pound, pound, pound. My head against the door. Locked inside a bathroom stall. Pound, pound. My black robes flutter. Pound.
A girl struggles with her sexuality through self-injury.
This was completely well-written and very sad... A very good one-shot. 10/10, which I have never given out before. P.S. I would really love it if you'd read any of my one-shots, because it's been so slow and I've been having trouble. I especially want another view of my story Bellatrix. Thanks!
Author's Response: No problem, I'll get around to at least one of your fics ASAP. I know how it feels to not be getting reviews. :) BTW, thanks so much for giving me a 10/10, that's a really high honor. I've only ever given one fic that rating myself....I'm glad you liked it.
Summary: Telara always knew she was special to her adoptive family. But she never knew how special she really was until Albus Dumbledore took her back to England and the wizarding world. Now she faces her biggest challenge ever. Fitting in at Hogwarts? No – she can do that. Will she be able to help Harry Potter win the war against Voldemort? For everyone’s sake – let’s hope so.
A very good improvement from the previous chapter... Just watch your commas... Certain sentences need them... but, I'm curious- will there be romance? Romance is always good!
Author's Response: I'm glad you like it. I think there is some romance trying to work it's way into the story. I didn't plan on it, but I think there will be some.
It keeps getting better and better! This story is charming. In the beginning when Dumbledore said, "You’ll be able to spot him quite easily," that was perfect! But I know Thestrel is supposed to be capitalized, and Phoenix might have to be as well. Good chapter!
Author's Response: Corrections made - thanks for letting me know. Thank you also for your encouragement. I hope I can become a better writer with each chapter - and with the help of my wonderful reviewers.
I loved it! Of course, I love anything with Snape in it... I re-wrote the first chapter to an American in Hogwarts, if you'd like to take a new look!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I like Snape too. I was nervous about writing him since he is so well loved. I would love to re-read your story - I do that straight away!
Hey! Remember when you reviewed An American in Hogwarts? It's finally up after... 45 days. I'd love it if you'd review! I hated leaving those 44 reviews on my other username... Urgh.
Author's Response: No problem! It's done. Thanks!
