Hey! My name is Chris. I'm sixteen years old, a Sophomore in High School once it starts, and I love to run. Harry Potter is probably my favorite book series ever, and I love writing fanfiction when I get the time. (Which unfortunately isn't very often and when I do it's in a notebook, not on here.)
I used to be more into humor fics, but I'm starting to read L/J more. I read Marauder Era fics a lot, too. I'm obsessed with the Marauders and Lily Evans. I loved the Phoenix movie, but I could still make a very long list of things I didn't like about it. I was crushed that they cut out Snape's Worst Memory, but then again, if they wouldn't have I would have been more dissappointed that Sirius and James weren't cute.
I love my friends. I can trust several of them with just about anything. I trust them more than it is probably a good idea to trust most people. They could blackmail me if they wanted to. Luckily, they don't. I really appreciate how comfortable some of my guy friends and I are. They'll lean over and whisper "she's hot!" without a second thought about it. I really appreciate it when their next comment is "but her skirt is too short." They resect me, and vise-versa. I know they'd respect me enough to tell me if MY shorts were a little too short.
As far as boks, other than HP, I love, love, LOVE the Left Behind and Left Behind serieses. They're the awesomest ever :) I'm always reading something, but that's my thing right now :)
My favorite Movie (debaitably) after the Phoenix and GoF would have to be the Pirates of the Carribean (The Black Pearl). The second one was great and I totally loved it, but the 1st was just better. Also, Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom... They are amazing. Haha.
I love Contemporary Christian and Country music. Casting Crowns is with no doubt my favorite band in the history of the universe, and Jeremy Camp is a close second.
I've gotta live in the smallest town in Ohio, and our K-12 school is really little. This year I'm running track and cross country again. CC is the awesomest sport ever in the history of awesome sports. I love how close we all are on the team.
I play trumpet in the marching band and I'm in the Science Olympiad, which pretty much makes me the biggest geek ever, but I'm okay with that. At least most of my friends are on the teams.
Random fact about me- I spelled my name wrong on the morning of the spelling bee last year.
BOOKS & MOVIES
Did you cry when Sirius died? Almost. I had a huge bloody blister looking thing on my lip from chewing on it and it wouldn't go away for a couple weeks.
What about Dumbledore? I was devastated. Ditto the lip thing that nobody wanted to know.
Do you like the movies as much as the books? No, but I loved the GoF and Phoenix movies.
Hottest HP actor? Tom Felton and Robert Pattinson.
What scene did they leave out in the movie you wish they hadn't? I can never decide if I wanted them to cut Snape's Worst Memory or not becuase it's my favorite scene in book 5 and maybe even in the first 6 books, but I havent sen it yet (anxious for the DVD to come out!), so I can't make that call yet. **My DVD doesn't have special features... does anyone else's??
Favorite movie moment? Hermione just being annoying in the 1st one. Or Ron just being an idiot. That's always fun :) Then maybe after the 2nd task in the Gof. Hermione was really funny there, too :)
Least favorite movie moment? Whenever Dumbledore is there after the first 2 movies. It's not just a differant actor, they made him a hippie. Gag me. I mean, he has jingle bells in his beard, and you can hear them when he talks.
Favorite character in movie? Today it is Alan Rickman as Snape. (That might change tomorrow, I can never decide.) I'm a little nervous about him in the DH movie though. I just can't picture him in (spoiler!) his death scene ("Look at me") or sobbing in Dumbledore's office, devistated over Lily's death. I hope he'll suprise me and pull it off wonderfully. :)
Favorite Movie? Mmmmm... I'd have to say Phoenix. I loved it so much :)
Right now, I'm writing my 1st fic- "Hard to Find, Difficult to Leave, Impossible to Forget". I suprized myself by writing a romance fic (It's L/J). I never do stuff like that. I'm such a tomboy. :) It took me ages to finally be satisfied with the way my 1st chapter ended up, but I'm getting there. My life is incredibly hectic, but it's summer, so my schedule is slowed down a little. I'll try to type up the rest of it quicker than I have been :) Oh, and thank you to my wonderful beta, Emily. She's so awesome :) Thanks so much, Emmi :)
Well, that was practically a book right there :) I'll shut up for now :)
Summary: In every story, there are missing scenes: smaller stories that don't make it into the main plot, but that subconsciously happen all the same. Harry Potter is no different — behind the scenes were the makings of a love that surprised us all.
This is so great! I love it! It makes me want to cry, though :( But that means you're not a bad writer :) This is a cool story, keep writing!!
Author's Response: Was I the only one who cried for Tonks in HBP? I was depressed for her even when I didn't know she was upset over Remus. Man. Thanks a bunch for the review!
I like this a lot! Keep writing! I'm anxious for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thanks! And the next chapter is up! Just an hour or so after I submitted it (again) :D Thanks mods! Everyone go read the 2nd chapter now! :)
Okay. Okay Okay Okay Okay Okay Okay
For all of you who wanted an update, I have a proposition. You may or may not like it, but it's all I can offer.
Check review challenge for the last chapter. details there!
James and Lily Potter were possibly the most famous parents in wizarding history. We know alot about their adult life, but what do we really know about their childhood? Even Harry never knew about the Drama, jealousy, danger, friendships, happiness, sadness, resentment,confusion and love that his parents went through as children. Here, their lives, from when the two of them were eleven to when they were brutally murdered at only 21, is recorded. Lily and James Potter were unsung heros. This is their story.
Oh, I feel so bad for you! You've never played in the snow? Too bad :) (I live in Ohio (in the US), it's just starting to get cold, here) Anyway, this is such a cool fic! I just can't figure out how Lily went from being friends with James in her 1st year to hating him in her 5th year to going out with him in her 7th year :) But that's all :) This is awesome!
Author's Response: Yes, I have never played in the snow, or seen snow! poor me, *sob* anyway, thankyou sooo much for reviewing my story,
Author's Response: *woops, cliked submit* so, yar, It took me ages to plan this story out so that the relationship between James and Lily goes on a natural roller-coaster ride, but I think I finally have it the way that I want it, and I hope that you all love i!! Keep readin! Sophie
Summary: SPOILER WARNING! Events in HBP are discussed.
This story picks up immediately after the funeral as Harry and his friends leave Hogwarts on the train. During the summer that follows Harry’s sixth year he begins his lonely quest to destroy Lord Voldemort. He finds two of the items that he is seeking and a truth he has been attempting to avoid.
This chapter covers the trip to London on the Hogwarts Express after Dumbledore’s funeral. Why are Professors McGonagall and Flitwick on the train? Why is Hermione crying on someone else’s shoulder? What is Percy Weasley up to?
Just thought I'd let you know, this says,
"“Remus, please don’t me Nymphadora,” Tonks said."
I'm not done with this chapter yet (I knew I'd forget to tell you that), so I'm going to go back to reading :)
Author's Response: Thanks Chris! The missing word is "call" (as you probably guessed). What do you suppose Remus will call Tonks? I mean Tonks is her dad's name and she doesn't like Nymphadora. He'll have to start calling her something endearing but he better avoid any "baby" terms.
Summary: Confined to his cell, Lucius is dependent on rumours and cryptic letters to figure out what goes on in the world. He knows Narcissa is worried about something, he can feel it. He just can’t do anything about it, but then maybe he can?
Written in response to the monthly challenge on the Mugglenet fanfiction forum, promt one - A one-shot from the point of view of someone not in the Order of the Phoenix during HBP. JessicaH, Ravenclaw.
...oh, my. That was weird. Well written, yes, absoloutly, but... creepy. I want o give you a 9.5, but I'll just go with a 10.
Author's Response: Lucius is a creepy guy, Azkaban is a creepy place. I'm glad you liked it.
Summary: James Potter usually accepts dares without batting an eyelash. However, this time, while he’s on a dare, he's also on a personal mission. But first, he’s anxiously waiting for Lily to turn up. What does Lily have to do with this dare? And what will she say when she finds out?
Before you start commenting that the dare was unromantic, please please read the 2nd sentence of the 4th paragraph. I clearly state that "James was steeling himself to do SOMETHING HE WANTED TO DO VERY MUCH EVEN WITHOUT BEING DARED TO". In other words, the dare was the catalyst, not the cause. It only served to spur him into action; it didn't give him the intention of doing what he did (I'm trying not to give out spoilers here, so read to find out what - though you can probably guess ;)).
This was so cute! Cuteness! :) I've never been 100% sold on all of this fluff, but... It's SO cute!! Your story rocked! :)
Summary: Sure, the tales of the Trio are great, and I'm not denying it. But what happens after the end of their story? Death, deception, and disagreements, to name a few things. Join Cora Potter, along with her best friends Olivia and Drew, during their first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry- and I can guarantee that you will never see the HP universe the same way again.
Chapter eleven is being painfully slow, isn't it? I promise to have it done by the time the queue reopens!
Yay! I loved it :) Drew/Olivia thing... I can't wait to see what happens next :) I'd love to see the quidditch match. I'm a sports addict. I've become rather attached to my quidditch matches :)
Author's Response: heehee Drew/Olivia... if Joe ever gets around to reading this he\'ll hate me forever.... I hope he knows that Olivia is entirely fictional! she didn\'t use to be, but she is now. chalk one up for quidditch!
Drew seems great :) I love him, so far :) He's fun to read about :) I really like this so far! But cliffies really annoy me :) That's ok, though, I love writing them, too :) I think I can assume Cora won't be in Gryffindor, since she's so sure she'll be there :) Don't tell me if that's right :)
Author's Response: If you like Drew so much, you should contact Joe. He really is Drew, after all. Cliffies are such fun, though, I really don't see why so many people object to them! Assumptions are dangerous things to make... (notice I'm not saying anything about what house Cora gets. I'm such an evil littile person! don't you just want to growl at me? grrrrrr...)
Author's Response: Thanks for putting me on your faves list! that really means a lot to me.
Summary: As Lily and James head into their final year at Hogwarts, some of Lily's feelings for James change. And will Voldemort, becoming ever stronger, change the fates of Lily and her friends? He will kill whoever gets in his way in his rise to power, and Lily and James could be their only hope for stopping him. Alternates POV of Lily/James. Has been edited a lot recently from its original posting.
This is such a great fic! I love it! I'll go ahead and answer your questions:
1) Who is your favorite character? Why? I dunno, probably Lily. I find myself to be very much like her.
2) do you like it better when james and lily get together sort of in the beginning of the fic or the end? Oh, definately at the end, without doubt.
3) what is your favorite quote? ...Er... not sure.
4) what is your favorite chapter title? "Emotions and Flashbacks". Don't know why.
5) what is your favorite chapter? Why? I like them all :) They're all great :)
Author's Response: thanks so much for the compliments! my questions are random, i know, but i want to see what the general population thinks about my stuff! glad you like lily as she is one of the main characters... though i do find myself to be kind of a cross between cassie and andy. but i bet my friends won't think so. it's just the way i see them... i should base characters on my friends, maybe then sarah will give herself a break from the harry/ginny to read my story. but whatever, it's not like i've updted in awhile so i can't blame her. i'm leaning towards having lily and james get toether earlier in the fic so they can have lots of adventures, tho. (what did lily and james do to thrice defy voldemort anyway.... made you think didn't i!!!) but it's going to be a loooong fic so it might be around chapter ten, i don't know quite yet. can you tell i havn't quite planned tis totally out yet?? lol. anyway, thanks for the cool review! ttyl ~Mary Kate~
Summary: Hermione had always liked the autumn. Now, when spending it at the Burrow in the aftermath of the war she realises why it is her favorite.
Cuteness! (Sorry, that's my word :) I loved this! I love autumn! I love R/Hr! :) I'm a bit hyper today, but that's ok. I loved this story! :)
Author's Response: :D I'm so happy you liked it. Thank you.
I love this SO much!! It rocks SO hard!! Keep it up! :)
Oh, that was so cute! I loved it! I love Tonks! I love Remus! I love R/T!!! I'm far too cheerful! But that's ok! I loved this story!!! It was awesome!!!
Author's Response: Haha, thanks for the enthusiatic (or something like that, I'm awful at spelling) review. I know, Tonks and Remus are like the perfect pairing...*sigh*. I'm glad you liked this chapter! :)
“I don’t like your nose. I’m not drawing it.” that sounds so much like me as a little kid :) Anyway, I really love this! Little Tonks is SOOO cute!!! 10! I love it!
Summary: Lily begins to worry about her sanity when she realizes that she might have feelings for James Potter.
Cute! I love it! (I'm so pathetic with L/J fics, I like neaarly all of them) But I think that this really should be classified as James/Lily, not Marauder Era. But maybe it will be more Marauder Era-ish in later chapters?
Summary: James and Lily are back again for their seventh and final year in Hogwarts. Lily is certain she still hates James. James is certain this will be the year Lily will finally go out with him. With niether giving up what they believe this is certainly going to be the craziest year ever!
This is cool! I like it! Keep writing! I really feel like I am relating to Lily a lot lately, which to put it nicely is not fun. A whole lot of confusion, there... anyway, this is great, keep it up!!
Author's Response: thanx 4 the comment! lol about Lily. Good luck with that!
This is really cool! Great start! This should be fun to read!
Summary: The War is over, but Remus finds himself fighting a new battle of body and heart. RLNT (One-shot)
Oh, that was great!!! I loved it!!! Have you writyen anything else? Let me go see...
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you liked it! I have written another story before HBP came out called "How Can I Make This Summer Go Faster" but my Muse desterted me and I never finished it.
Author's Response: oops... I forgot I changed the title of my story to Time for Regrets or Retribution...
Summary: James Potter: Marauder. Lily Evans: Prefect. They're both seventh years at Hogwarts. They're also about to have a pretty interesting year--complete with a few detentions, pranks, confusion, and laughter--in which they get through school, make some trouble and maybe, just maybe, sort out their feelings for each other.
Thanks to all you who have made it possible for this story to be in the Top Tens. It was a very happy moment when I first saw my story on the list, and I love being able to go back and see it there now. Still. Yay!
Throughout the latter half of 2010, and the first half of 2011, I re-edited this story. The changes were mostly to fix stray (and annoying) grammar and spelling errors, but also to rework some plot points in an effort to stay truer to canon. I also updated the style; having written this story so long ago, my writing has definitely developed (and I would say gotten better), so I edited to reflect that. (I apologize for the errors that were in the story before all this editing. I found them immensely distressing when I reread my chapters. Heartbreaking, really.)
Big “thank yous” go to the three people who helped edit/nitpick the first edition of this novel: violagirl, fairiesandcream, and Omagus.
And yes, this story is up on Fanficition.net under the penname: Io.Sono.Emilia.
Of course, as a disclaimer, I’m not JK Rowling. The Potterverse does not belong to me, but I am in it and love it.
That was good :) Yay! Sam and Monica are so cute! Oh, but in the second-to-last paragraph, you wrote "Lily, Alice and Nikeia were holding pillows over their heads" when I'm pretty sure you meant Josey instead of Nikeia. That was a cute chapter, I liked it :)
Author's Response: *slaps forehead* So many mistakes! Thank you for catching that! Oh darn!
mmm... ok. That was alright. Not my favorite, but not bad, either :)
Author's Response: Thank you. I know it was kinda boring, but I\'m glad it wasn\'t too bad. :-)
:) That was cool :) I liked it :) Not my favorite so far, but still very good :)
Author's Response: Probably not one of my favorites either- i don\'t know which one is my favorite...hmmm..- but I\'m glad you liked it. Thanks!
