Summary: “I’m holding your wheel! All I hear is your gear! I’m cruising in overdrive. Don’t have to listen to no one in the middle talk jive. I’m in love with my car. Got a feel for my Automobile…” The muggle car was beautiful and bright turquoise. It wasn’t big or suave. It was not one of those fancy, big American cars. It was simply a cute little Ford Anglia. But Arthur Weasley loved it!
Third short in my A Night at the Opera series!
Only just noticed your response to my last review...XD Yup, that's where I got my name from. Do you like Rasputina? You're the first person I've met who knows who they are...
And because I would never want to spam, I've been re-reading this story. Once again, it is SO cute...Molly is very well characterized in particular. Love the ending.
Oh, I just loved this. I'm too lazy to write a proper review, but great story!
Author's Response: Thank you! Hm... The Salt Lake Queen? Wouldn\'t have anything to do with the song Saline the Salt Lake Queen, by Rasputina, would it? If not, just ignore me.
Summary: Voldemort's rising reign of terror, NEWTs, death attempts, a Headship, a tangled affair with James Potter, hilarity, grief, love, secrecy, maddness... it's almost hard to believe that I've survived to graduate. I am Lily Evans, and this is my 7th year.
You know what? You're amazing.
Seriously, I love this story so much. Beautifully written. The alternating point of view really adds tension. Your characterization is great, particularly with James and Frank - they jump off the page in a way most authors struggle to achieve, but seems to come quite naturally here.
I'm really enjoying what I've read so far. I hope to see more soon! xx
Summary: The first war with Lord Voldemort is constantly getting worse; people are dying left and right, dementors are attacking people on the Death Eaters' orders, and nobody knows who is trustworthy anymore. Lily Evans, in her seventh year at Howarts, does not want to be a part of the war -- but some things are unavoidable.
You've had me in tears for the past few chapters...I hope you're happy with yourself. :P
Seriously, this story is just beautiful. I love it...it's going on my favourites list, and I can't wait til the next chapter gets put through because, well, I might explode if I don't read some more of this soon!
Summary: Chapter Ninety Six is posted!
This is the story of four boys. This is the story of a boy from a family he wants to escape from. This is the story of a boy who is from a family he loves deeply, but lacks the gift of a best friend. This is the story of a boy who has been living with a curse his entire life, fighting to overcome it. This is the story of a boy who wishes to show people what he can do. This is the story of how these four boys came to know each other, of how they became friends. This is the story of their unbreakable bond, of a bond that could survive any test, any trial. This is a story that will ultimately end in tragedy.

Wow, poor Remus! This story is intense...can't wait to read the next instalment. Your writing is excellent. :D
Author's Response: Yeah, 4th year was rather intense. 5th year will be a little more lighthearted, until the infamous Whomping Willow incident. Glad you like it! Thanks for reading!
Well, you just seriously cheered my day. I've been home all day sick with the flu, and reading this has made my day far more enjoyable. Or perhaps it's your descriptions of Remus' transformations that stop me feeling so sorry for myself...VERY good descriptions, by the way. Gruesome, but very realistic.
This is a fantastic story...your characterization of the Marauders really leaps off the page. Personally, I think the best bit is your portrayal of Peter - it's astonishingly rare that I find a story which handles his character properly. Usually he's either a snivelling brat, or completely absent. You've portrayed him just like I've always imagined he ought to be.
What can I say? This is going in my favourites...thanks for a riveting read so far, and I can't wait for the next instalment to get through the queue. :)
Summary: For the past six years, Lily Evans has put up with James Potter's pranking. But as her seventh year commences, she decides it's time to give James a taste of his own medicine.
Chapter 7 has finally been submitted!
A tiny sneek peek:
"Oh, come on now! Lily thought. “Just kiss me already,” she said audibly. James froze at her words and she, embarrassed beyond belief that her thoughts had spilled from her mouth, sat entirely still."
Eep...this is awesome! Dorcas is insane...I'm guessing it was her who set the birds on Lily? Aww, poor James...can't wait for the next chapter!
Summary: The summer night before her wedding, Lily sits under a tree with James. A relaxing, happy one-shot about love and happiness.
... heaven forbid I ever forget how I love these things, how I love the intertwining of our hands and the way time has paused while we rest here before our lives take off and we stand to meet the world together.
Beautiful, absolutely beautiful. God, you just about made me feel as if I was in love with James too...amazingly well crafted story. I just loved it.
Author's Response: you weren\'t in love with James already? :) But thanks so much for reviewing; I really appreciate your comments.
Summary: Andromeda Tonks thought she had finally got her favourite cousin back.
So when he is taken from her once again by the person she least expects, it is enough to break her.
That was beautiful. I was truly touched.
Author's Response: aww, thank you. glad you liked it!
Summary: James would do anything to get inside Lily’s head. Lily would do anything to get away from James. Lily was brewing a banned potion. James went to find her. Lily made a mistake and the potion exploded. James got his wish, but is it much more than he bargained for?
After a year the Epilouge is now up! Come read for a bit of fun!!
Runner up QSQ - Best Chaptered Canon Romance
Reason for Nomination:
This is the most unique take on how James and Lily really got to know each other. The story is hilarious and keeps you laughing throughout, but it never lets you forget the serious stuff. Plus, she somehow manages to end each chapter with a nice cliffhanger.
My, my, this is fantastic! I confess, I'm having a hard time keeping my mind out of the gutter here (I mean, they're IN EACH OTHERS' BODIES!) but I AM thoroughly enjoying the story. Can't wait for the next chapter!
Summary: James has tried. Now it's time to give up.
I’m going to let her go. I’m going to let her be her own person, without me around. Without me around to bother her anymore.
A one-shot from James POV about trying to give up
SEQUEL It Wasn't You, It Was Me NOW ON MNFF!
Wow. Beautiful story - the emotions were painfully realistic. <3
Summary: On the morning of Christmas Day, 2000, Hermione Granger (soon-to-be-Weasley) wakes up from a delightful dream to find herself in a bathroom at Grimmauld Place.
As various Weasleys queue up to tell her all about her behaviour the night before at Aunt Muriel's birthday party, Hermione is in a state of shock.
She knows she didn't drink anything stronger than Butterbeer. So why was she wearing a toga and teaching everyone how to perform Greek dancing?
And what, in the name of Merlin, was she doing with George?
This is Equinox Chick and this is my entry for the extra credit challenge 'In Vino Veritas' for the Winter Snows 09 competition over at the MNFF beta boards.
Thank you to Apurva for beta'ing this tale in time. Thanks also to various people on AIM for telling me to get on with this (Jess, Natalie, Hannah, Russia, Kara, BB)
Disclaimer: I'm not JK Rowling. She would never have written anything quite so daft.
Claimer: I have disgraced myself wearing a toga before now.
This is, without a doubt, one of the craziest things I have ever read. The Ancient Greeks would be so, so proud.
I never can resist a few good Greek Myth jokes; you pull it off very, very well!
Summary: When Lily and James are both awarded the Head Boy and Head Girl position, they are forced to get along for the sake of their school. Unfortunately, neither Lily nor James are willing to let their guard down. What results is a story that is so passionately tumultuous, neither one of them ever realizes that they have not only crossed the thin line between love and hate...but they are now dancing in its depths.
As the entire magical world battles the oncoming threat of He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, Lily and James will have to learn that the only way to defeat the darkness is to find the light...in themselves.
Liking it a lot so far. I used to follow your old work, back when I was under a different penname I believe...your style has is as strong as ever. I'm impressed. :)
Excellent chapter! Lily's characterisation is good, very vivid, and I loved the banter between her and James. Lily and Remus' dialogue didn't seem to be working quite as well, for some reason...it seemed like you were kind of skimming the topic, keen to get on to the bit with James.
That aside, there's not a whole lot I can think of to criticize. I smiled the whole time I was reading this, and if you knew what kind of day I've had you would realise that is a very big compliment indeed. Looking forward to your next!
