Update: Hey everyone! It's been a while since I've updated any of my stories, and I just wanted to let you know I haven't given up on them, I'm just extremely busy right now. I'm sorry about the wait :(
I should be submitting some new chapters (hopefully) by the first week of July. Thanks!
Hello, and welcome to my author’s page! *waves* On here you will find information about me, my stories, and random bits and pieces.
Once an innocent little kid, Trivia's sister told her that she should read a book called Harry Potter. Apparently, the people were magical in it. But small Trivia claimed she had no interest in that book, and promptly put it back on her sister's bookshelf. It reappeared on her bed again. She put it back on the shelf. And again, it reappeared the next day, and the day after that, and the day after that. Finally Trivia just kept the book, but put it in her closet. And then she saw the first movie with her sister, and two seconds after it had ended, Trivia was found running up the stairs, rummaging through her closet, and pulling out the book. She read late into the night, and the next day, and has loved Harry Potter ever since. :)
I enjoy reading, math, science, sports, acting, dancing, being outside, being with friends and family, and laughing. Oh, and some random thing called reading and writing fan fiction stories, whatever that is.

Characters from Harry Potter (in no particular order):
Lily, James, Remus, Sirius, Dumbledore, McGonagall, and the other professors (still debating about Snape....), Hermione, Ron, Harry, Ginny, Luna, Fred (*sniff….FRED!*) George, Charlie, Bill, Mr. and Mrs. Weasley, and my OC, Tammie
The Celtic Woman, The Postal Service- Such Great Heights, HelloGoodbye, E.S. Posthumus, The Fray, and many, many others!
Random facts about me:
~I have no nick-name (people have tried, but it is just not possible)
~When writing a story, I will usually listen to songs that reflect the mood of the chapter if I am stuck. It's not distracting like I used to think. I don't do this for poetry though; that is when it becomes distracting
~I have been sorted into Ravenclaw and Gryffindor multiple times, and have now decided that I will reside in RavenDor, or GryffinClaw
~When I laugh and try to suddenly stop, my eyes water up and spill over, making it look as if I'm crying.
~Whoever said nothing is impossible was wrong. They obviously never tried slamming a revolving door. :)
~I love sunlight
~Luna's Poems was my first 'fanfic' on here, and it remains my favorite out of all that I've written :)
Thank you very much to all my betas, Squashy, Ginnione Grangley, and Zackie; you guys are the best! Also, thank you to people who have reviewed one of my stories. All your comments are considered, and they always brighten my day; thank you!
What I would do if....
1. I ruled the world: who says I don't already? *Laughs hysterically*
2. Owned a niffler: can you say forever happy? Me and Elmo, (yes, his name would be Elmo) would rule the world together. I would need to get our capes and crown sizes sorted out first. You can't rule the world with out a cape and crown. You really can't.
3. I was the author of Harry Potter: The world would be mine. Seriously, just give me England and a piece of pie now. (Yes, you might be thinking Okay-Trivia has some issues with wanting world power *turns around and runs away* But that's alright...)
My favourites from a list from Mugglenet Fun lists
You Know You're Too Big of a Fan When...
1. You were burned when you couldn't get through the flames of your fireplace.
2. You had to go to the hospital after you broke your nose running headfirst into the wall between platforms nine and ten.
3. You collect plugs.
4. You yell into the "fellytone."
5. You get into heated arguments over how much gel Tom Felton had in his hair in the first two movies.
6. You refer to Voldemort as "You-Know-Who", and no one has any idea who you're talking about.
7. You were kicked out of the movie theatre for standing on your chair, throwing your shoe at the screen and yelling "THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN IN THE BOOK!"
Creating the Dawn- W.I.P. Nineteen chapters are written so far, Ch.7 is being read by my betas now. I feel like there are so many Marauder era fics that go over the seventh year at Hogwarts, but what about sixth year? That's when they learned appaparation, and much more. I also feel like if they are in sixth year, the threat of Voldemort is only starting to build; it's still there, but Lily and James are not meeting with him yet, so they are free to act more immature sometimes (which for me, translates to the Marauders in awkwardly funny situations, and pulling pranks, but also more serious situations and problems).

Let the bubbles float away- Finished and Validated! Certain moments in Luna’s life that I find essential for her character. Not much humour. It’s a “coming of age” story, if you please.
Category: dark/angsty fics
In the Light- Poem about Petunias reaction to Lily’s death. Written when I had writers block during Creating the Dawn. Validated!

Summary: The truth about the fifth Gryffindor boy is revealed (Remus ate him), a comforter not-so-spontaneously combusts twice, James smells funny, and Peter likes chicken. And Natalie Blackwood snogs Sirius in a broom closet (yay inbred purebloods).
Ahhhhh! Love it, love it, love it! You, dear author, you are brillant. Now for my review: LOVED IT!
Nice job with the characterizations, and the lines. ALso, the humor was right along with the characters, making this even more real.
Summary: Lily Evans: sweet, quiet, kind, and gentle.. at least, until Sirius tries to hit on her in an attempt to get her to help him with his homework. Much chaos ensues.
My favourite line: "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful!" Even better that it was said by Sirius. He He. Wonderful job, it read really smoothly!
Summary: Many questions remain unanswered about Lily and James. Was James always an arrogant bully? Did Lily really hate James, or was there something more behind her angry reply at the lake? And whoever said Lily was a bossy bookworm? Join the marauders and their friends as they go through Hogwarts, and experience pain and joy, tears and laughter...as they realize that no matter how dark the night may get, the Light of Sunrise will always follow.
This is awesome! I love the way you have characterized Remus and Tami! I can't wait to read more!
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m glad you\'re enjoying it... :)
Summary: Ginny's thoughts now that Harry is gone. One shot.
Oh! You almost made me cry (in a good way...) Great one-shot, the last line was my favorite. Nice job!
Author's Response: thank you so much for the kind words!
Summary: Lily Evans and James Potter hated each from the moment they met. Or so it seemed. This is their story.
I LOVE THIS!!!!!! THis is soooooo funny, and I randomly burst out laughing every two seconds! I escpecially love how the girls pranked the boys back! Awesome chapter!
Summary: A fear of commitement drives Lily away. Circumstance gives them another chance, but old friends could be there end. This is the story of James Potter and Lily Evans, the year after Hogwarts.
Excerpt from the new chapter:
He doesn’t want you to kiss him, she told herself rationally.
“No p-,” she started
Cliff hanger! good start to the story!
“And I call being the one to push Kirsty into the fire in the middle of the night!” shouted Sirius mockingly.
haha, no doubt my FAVORITE line in the entire chapter!
As always, you have written another great chapter, that has very well developed characters. My only nit-pick is when Remus says “Let’s get some alcohol down us, shall we?”. The sense I got from the books was that while Remus was a Marauder, he was more cautious, and this line seemed more like a James or Sirius one to me. Other than that, great job, and I look forward to the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thank you, that means a lot, it really does. Yeah, I think you're right with Remus, I must not have been thinking properly when I assigned that line to him. Chapter 12 will be up as soon as I can submit it!
Summary: I can imagine what you would look like
after being kissed, your burning hair
halo-soft around your face, your lips
half parted, flaming, full...
A train to Nowhere. A cherry red umbrella. A brief brushing. One last chance. An acid green light. What could have been.
These are poems featuring Lily Evans and Severus Snape, told in the tragic hero's point of view.
Oh my goodness. Very nice, extreamly nice. The descriptions of Lily melted right in with the poem and the rain. Amazing job, it painted a clear but rainy picture in my head. I can't wait to read more!
Author's Response: All your reviews really made my day...thank you so much! :D
Ahh. That captured Serverus perfectly. The
You forget I can read your soul.
But if, just if
I swear the rose will be
is my favorite part. Beautiful poem, great addition.
Author's Response: Thanks again for reviewing!
So sad and yet beautiful at the same time. Lovely poems, they are so real to Lily and Severus.
The way you write your poems makes me beilieve that he loved her truely, just like JK showed in the book with his doe patronus.
Author's Response: I\'m glad you liked them, even though I think they are a little too sappy for Snape/Lily...thanks for reviewing!
Summary: Irene Mahavior had always taken a fancy to the quiet Remus Lupin. She liked the soft spoken boy, as she had grown up with her rather raucous Irish family. Irene couldn’t though, for the life of her, figure out where Remus disappeared to once a month. Not thinking anything of it, Irene decided to take a moonlit stroll out on the grounds one night. This one mere urge would seal her fate forever.
oh. my. goodness. This is brilliant! You are an amazing writer; I'm hooked. Great job, the characterizations are very believable too!
Author's Response: Aw, thanks a mill! I hope you enjoy the next chapters just as much!
Summary: Molly Weasley decides to share an event from her girlhood with Ginny and Hermione.
wow. interesting turn to the story.
the way you characterized Mrs. Weasly was a bit un-expected, but it worked quite well.
Author's Response: Thanks! :)
Summary: CoS missing moment. Why was Penelope Petrified with Hermione? Did Hermione tell her about the Basilisk? What really happened that day?
Wow, great job! I had never really thought about how Hermione and Penelope ended up being petrified, but your version has now filled in that hole. My favorite line was That way, if the Basilisk is there, we’ll at least only be Petrified, not killed.’
‘That’s a comforting thought,’ Penelope said dryly.
Great job; it was a cool story to read.
Summary: A poem about the ones Harry loved who were killed, and the veil in the Department of Mysteries.
Very nice! The title was what caught my eye, and the repetition of Love behind the veil was extremely effective in the poem. I, like everyone else who has reviewed, also loves how you broke up the last line. Great job!
Author's Response: Thank you! ^^ Your review has made my day! I\'m delighted you liked my little poem, as it\'s my first ever fanfiction. Might I also say that I adored your \"Luna Poems\" ?
Summary: A poem from Dumbledore's POV. Contains DH spoilers.
Great Poem! Usually, I don't like rhyming poems, but your rhymes were not forced, each one fit, and each-one was there for a reason. The stanza breaks were well done as well. I think this captured Dumbledore and his sorrow perfectly, especially the lines
A family again,
These are the things I wish for you
when I whisper your name.
All in all, wonderful job!
Author's Response: Thank you! I\'m really pleased you liked it. I normally don\'t like rhyming, either (mainly because I\'m horrible at it) but this poem just seemed to come to me. :) Once again, thanks for your lovely review!
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."
Ahh! I am hooked on this story. I can't wait to find out what happens next. Nice chapter; it all flows really well.
Summary: The first time it happens, he is fourteen. Sitting at the Gryffindor table, Peter thinks of murder. (What's wrong with him?)
[Peter Pettigrew, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and the logic of fives. Dark, some disturbing imagery. One shot.]
Wow. This is a story to remember, and I can clearly see why it won! Congratulations :)
It was extremely creepy; every time you wrote about the number 5, or how there were six, or only 14 people, I could feel the intensity build... It was also neat how you were able to include so many events into one story, without overloading us with info. Once again, great story- a very interesting read.
Summary: Petunia Evans had never been pretty like Lily, or smart like Lily, but she had always been first. First born, first to walk, first to cross the street by herself, and now, first to be accepted into Hogwarts. As the acceptance letter Petunia has been waiting for since she can remember doesn’t arrive, she battles the frightening prospect that she may not be a witch at all.
A submission to the Autumn Challenge’s Telling the Truth prompt by solemnlyswear_x of Gryffindor.
Aww! Poor Petunia!
Nice job, this was an enjoyable read, and the characterization were well done. I feel so bad for Petunia now :(
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you liked it! :D
Summary: It's Remus Lupin's fifth year at Hogwarts, and too much is happening at once! James loves Lily, Sirius is all for having a laugh, Peter's beginning to resent his friends, Lily need a real friend, and Remus, he's a werewolf, what other problems does he need? More than expected, that's for sure...
Extract from Chapter 4: Detentions and Deceptions
As I am writing this, I have noticed that there is a large box of Honeydukes chocolate underneath James’ bed. Why has he not shared them? We always share our stuff.
Or maybe, he has told Sirius and Peter, but is keeping them a secret from me. Why would he do that?
Oh yeah, he knew I would eat them at the first opportunity. I think I may have one, just out of spite.
Whoops, James just discovered me eating his chocolates, and, to be frank, there were not a lot left when he found me, though I am sure I only had one or two… He says I have to pay for a new box, the original having been a birthday present for Sirius. I do not think that I can afford a new box, not if I get Sirius a present too. Oh, no.
Wow! Great characteration of Remus. I feel so sad for him.... can't wait for the next chapter! awesome beginging!
Author's Response: Thank you! Yeah... Remus\' life is pretty hard...
Summary: Glimpses into Remus Lupin's life at Hogwarts, all trying to answer the question: Is Remus a normal wizard who just has a â€śfurry little problemâ€ť, or is he a werewolf among wizards, trying to fit in where he may never truly belong?
Now with more Snape down the Whomping Willow! Check out Chapter 10: A Highly Amusing Joke and Chapter 11: Skyfall
Brilliant job! This chapter was fun and easy to read, very enjoyable. The prank was so mean, but very like something the Marauders would do. My favorite lines were:
“I want to push James into the dirt,” he said coolly. Sirius and Peter laughed.
“Err, no,” said James shortly.
“It would make me feel better,” argued Remus.
“Nicknames!” said James excitedly. “I want to be ‘The Amazing Quaffle Boy’!” That was so James :)
Author's Response: I love knowing which lines people liked best! I\'m glad you enjoyed the chapter. Thanks for the review!
