"The thing about growing up with Fred and George, is that you sort of start thinking anything's possible if you've got enough nerve."
Hello! I'm Padfoot, or PnP if you're in a rush. I like Harry Potter. I write fanfiction. I read fanfiction. You read fanfiction. Read my fanfiction.
The website above is my friend Orii's. I've got a few poems up on there-- feel free to check them out :D

Fav. HP Book- Sorcerer's Stone
Fav. HP Characters- Sirius, the Marauders (which includes Sirius, of course, but he's my favorite so he gets special recognition), the Weasleys, Luna, Neville, Tonks, Hagrid, the Trio, and Lily. Funny how a bunch of my favorites end up dead, isn't it?

A Weasley Christmas- first fic ever. Based off 'Twas the night before Christmas', only with a bunch of the lines changed so it pertains to Harry Potter.
A Letter For Fred- another poem. Rather sweet, from George to the recently-deceased Fred. I'm quite happy with how this one turned out.
The Trouble With Being Trusted- My very first Gauntlet, where a I wrote as Tonks. Includes younger versions of older characters, and the protaganist escaping death many times.
Who Killed the King?- My murder mystery WIP. I'm finally working on some more chapters, so hopefully they'll be up soon!
The Marauding Roses of Gryffindor- joint fic between me in a couple Gryffs. It was set up and put together by Michelle. And although I didn't win the date with Sirius, I got Remus instead, which is pretty awesome.
When Love Prevails- my second Gauntlet, co-written by the fabulous Brittany. Probably the weirdest James/Lily story you'll ever find. I wrote the wacky Lily ^_^
I hope to have more up soon, but feel free to drop a review for any of those!
My favorite HP quote of all time is as follows:
"--but you get these massive pus-filled boils too," said George, "and we haven't worked out how to get rid of them yet."
"I can't see any boils," said Ron, staring at the twins.
"No, well, you wouldn't," said Fred, "they're not in a place we generally display to the public --"
"-- but they make sitting on a broom a right pain in the --"
Yes, I have barely any emotional depth. Why do you ask?
Other favorite Quotes:
"You know, Minister, I disagree with Dumbledore on many counts...but you cannot deny he's got style..." (I liked it better when Kingsley said it in the movie. That was hilarious!)
"NOT MY DAUGHTER, YOU BITCH!"
"I'll join you when hell freezes over."
"Hello, Minister!" bellowed Percy, sending a neat jinx straight at Thicknesse, who dropped his wand and clawed at the front of his robes, apparently in awful discomfort. "Did I mention I'm resigning?"
“Do not pity the dead, Harry. Pity the living, and, above all, those who live without love. By returning, you may ensure that fewer souls are maimed, fewer families are torn apart. If that seems to you a worthy goal, then we say good-bye for the present.”
"If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals."
"Keep muttering and I will be a murderer!"
Oh, and don't forget Elvendork! It's unisex!
"And, quite honestly, I've had enough trouble for a lifetime"
Summary: Scorpius was finding it hard to concentrate on potions, and when he heard someone crying he just had to know what the matter was. What he discovered was more than he bargained for, and less than he imagined.
Originally for the September Challenge.
aaw, i loved it! so sweet... is Scorpius in the same house as Victoire? and what house is that? anyways... 10/10!
Author's Response: lol
Summary: Fred is dead.
But that's just the beginning! Because one of George's ears is up in heaven, and the other is down on earth...
Oh, the possibilities!

Twice nominated for Best Post-Hogwarts Story in the 2008 Quicksilver Quills Awards!
dude, i love this story! my fav is the in your underwear drawer thingy... i was saying it today and my friends thought i was nuts! i heard Eglantine's name from those books about the owl... the guardians of g'hoole or soemthing like that... and it made me laugh& cry& then some! i wanted to rip out george's intestines and tape them on the wall when he didnt wanna talk to fred anymore! it made me cry silently b/c there were ppl around who would have made fun of me for crying over fiction. great job!
Author's Response: Ohhhh, thank you! There is NOTHING WRONG with crying over fiction. Almost any Disney movie makes me cry, Brother Bear most of all. I got the name Eglantine from \"Bedknobs and Broomsticks,\" a very old moosical movie.
Don\'t be so hard on George... he felt so awkward because he was self conscious about growing up when Fred wasn\'t, plus his wife thought he was crazy and he was worried that maybe he was.
Summary: The hunt for Sirius Black is not going well. Two years after his mysterious escape from Hogwarts, Kingsley Shacklebolt is no closer to finding the infamous murderer, and to top it all, rumors of Voldemort's return are seeping through the Ministry. So when Mad-Eye Moody offers him a chance to join the Order of the Phoenix, Kingsley is more than glad to accept...until he meets someone unexpected at headquarters.
oooh, the plot thickens! love this story- its got a very creative plot& stuff... how lnogs it gonna be? anyways, cant wait for next chappie!

Summary: It is a chilly, November Sunday and all Harry wants to do is spend it with his wife and one-year-son, James at the park.
love this story! sounds interesting... can't wai tfor the next chappie!
Author's Response: Thanks for the Review!! Right now I\'m working on chapter three!
Summary: “Yes. I’ll just ask an angel to watch over me,” Maura replied with steady certainty, like it were the most logical thing in the world.
Oliver laughed again, readjusting Maura on one knee so that he could face her. “Oh, I see. And where are you going to find this angel?”
Maura shook her head. “Everyone has an angel, silly. I already know mine. They just don’t show up unless you really need them.”
Oh, Olivia, I love this!
Your Oliver is fantastic- he's very sweet and a bit sentimental, yet is a lot like how we see him in canon. Maura's adorable, too- their relationship is so cute! Their belief in angels adds a nice touch to the story. The fic also has a lot of detail- it make sit seem more realistic this way.
Good job on this! You seem ot be a great author, as well as an amazing bannermaker ;)
Summary: It's Lily's birthday and Severus feels that no matter what he gives her, it will never be special enough. The problem? Lily agrees with him.
Written by Pondering of Ravenclaw for November's One-Shot Challenge: Young Love.
aaw, that was beautiful! *sniff*... absolutely loved it!
Author's Response: Thanks! I\'m glad you enjoyed it. :)
Summary: Ron's been acting dodgy lately, and Hermione's worried. What could he be up to? Hermione fears the worst...but perhaps all could turn out for the best.
Ron's proposal to Hermione.
so cute! loved it!!!!
Author's Response: Thank you!!
Summary: Severus and Lily are friends—best friends. Summer days signify the time of year they have all to themselves, just the two of them. But will the blissfulness of those days last?
Written by A Cappella of Hufflepuff for the November One-Shot Challenge.

Summary: Severus asks Lily to meet him at the playground, and he shows up with a mysterious envelope adressed to Lily, but he won't show it to her.

aaww, how cute!
Summary: Sadie Murray is your typical American girl, stuck in the middle of her family. Sadie has an older sister who is popular, talented at everything she does, and lavishes in the respect she garners. Sadie's younger sister is pretty, adorable, cute, and uses these characteristics to cover up the fact that she's a nasty little brat. But Sadie's luck just might change when she receives a letter saying she has been accepted to The Salem Institute of Magical Learning.
poor Sadie! great start to the story though!
Author's Response: Thanks a bunch!
Sadie is quite like Harry, it shows in this chapter. I like this story... I'm not sure where you're going with it, but I hope the next chapter is up soon!
Author's Response: It\'s the big wind up before the swing, haha. I have a bad habit of having really long introductions. But my promises, once events begin to unfold, you won\'t be disappointed. Thanks for the review! I\'m glad you liked it.
Summary: Harry and Ginny often spend time relaxing under the tree by the lake. So did their parents, and both couples leave their mark on the tree. The tree remembers, and protects them in its own way.
Pairings are James/Lily and Harry/Ginny
Oh, and the Character Death isn't any of the canon characters. Thought you ought to know! *faints*
so sweet...i like how it was the tree's POV... will you say who died or do you just want us to imagine? 10/10
Author's Response: Well, since the tree narrated and then ripped itself up from the roots, I meant that the tree was the one that died.
Summary: Lily Potter is pregnant with a son, both she and her husband thrilled. One night, while she is sleeping, James has a touching talk with his son in Lily's belly.
aaw, that was so nice and sweet and oh- so touching!!! sniff... the only nitpick:
James whiped sweat off of his brow. He would have to get used to it, because soon, he really would be having face-to-face discussions with him. “Do you mind if I call you Remus? It is a lot easier to say that. It’s like I’m talking to my best mate.
you say 'James' and 'he' and the rest is in first person... just thought you'd like to know! fabulous story!
Author's Response: Hun, that\'s what he is saying. :)\r\n\r\n/Claire
Summary: This is book two in the "Potter's Pentagon" trilogy. Read "Potter's Pentagon: The Five" first, myesss? Cool.
WARNING: This story contains French people, an internal monologue about a blue orange, adolescent facial hair, good old-fashioned snogging, superstitious truck drivers, a portrait who calls everyone "Mavis," a zoo break-in, some very strange clothes, romantic conflict galore, and Ron Weasley's caffeine addiction. And worst of all, Professor Zabini!
Hogwarts is hosting the Triwizard Tournament, and when one of the members of Potter's Pentagon is selected to represent the school, much excitement ensues. Simultaneously, elections are being held for Minister of Magic, and things are getting busy at the Ministry.
Not to mention the fact that Jordan's made a new Muggle friend without informing her of the itty-bitty fact that he's magical, Haley has found an enchanted diary of dubious origin, Ted's met a werewolf from Beauxbatons, and Emma... well, Emma's not having a good year.
And what exactly is Ivy up to, anyway?
Everyone has secrets. But in the end, the truth will have to come out.
Starring Best Male Original Character runner-up Jordan Potter, Best Female Original Character Nominees Ivy Potter, Emma Weasley, Haley Potter, and Giorgi Anderson, and Best Male Original Character nominee Ted Lupin! Nominated for Best Post-Hogwarts story in the 2008 Quicksilver Quill Awards!
heehee, love the plant reference! Apple sounds incredibly Lockhart- like... and I can't guess which of the five would be a champion! I wonder how long Jordan can lie to Goirgi without cracking... and I wonder who Haley's talking to! Lee sounds veryyy suscpious! can't wait for the next chappie!
Author's Response: WOW, I\'ve never had anything updated this quickly before!
Remember that Apple is viewed through Harry\'s point of view... and I think Harry is a little jealous! But yeah, he is a little too glamorous for the job.
I\'ll try to update soon.
SQUEE!!! My next Christmas present! Too bad it wasn't wrapped up...
Ha, I told you it would be up! Points for Padfoot! And, er, now onto the review...
Ohh, Ivy's jeal-ous! I feel bad for her... but it's kinda fun at the same time. But I don't think her and Arden are going to be buddies anytime soon.
And I don't think there's one reader left on the face of the earth who likes Marina. I hate her! She can go jump off a cliff with a ball of light herself!
I want a pet giraffe too! And a white alpacha. What's Tyroonie gonna name his giraffe, Merlin's Thong?
Love confession from Ivy! ZOMG! I feel terrible now- and poor Ted has no idea he might wake up with crabs on his face!
Great chappie! But one things wrong, and you did it on purpose because you're a meaniehead- you didn't tell us Jordan's job! *pouts*
I hope the next chapter's up soon! Well, it won't be, since the queue's closed, but you know what I mean...
MERRY CHRISTMAS, CHARLIE BROWN!
Author's Response: It was so nice of them to put it up in time for Christmas, wasn\'t it? (More points for Padfoot for saying \"Merry Christmas Charlie Brown.\")
Hahahaha, your review is very am00sing indeed. Yeah, Marina is not too likeable, though I guess it\'s not really her fault. Still, though *sticks tongue out*
A face is not the worst place you can wake up to find crabs, though, so I guess Ted\'s luck isn\'t that bad.
OMG, I want an alpaca, too! My friend has two alpacas and a guanaco, and I ish jealous. I think Tyroonie would name his giraffe \"Smookins.\" But that\'s just me!
Hahahaha, you don\'t find out Jordan\'s job \'till the epilogue of the third book! I am teh ebilnessnessness.
Oh-- I think you will like the next chapter. It\'s THE ROMANCE CHAPTER.
heck yes, it only took a squintillion years!!! jk i dont mind... its up now!!! yesssssssssss!!!!!!! i started screaming i was like "SCHMERGO'S NEW STORY IS UP!!!!!!!!!!"
yes, im a freak.
i figured you wouldn't grant jordy the luxury of being prefect... ted_n_ivy shippa in the house! i love goirgi... very interesting spelling, btw. only one nitpick- in the last book, edwin was fred's son, and now he's george's. is fred dead in PP now? just wondering! anyways, this is jsut as wonderful as the five and i cant wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Hehehehe, I\'m editing The Five to make Edwin George\'s son... because I named George\'s son in \"Long-Distance Extendable Ears\" Edwin, and I doubt they\'d give their son the same name.
BUT FRED SHALL NEVER BE DEAD IN PP! BECAUSE HE IS TOO AWESOME!
Mwahahaha, I\'m too evil to let Jordan be a prefect. I like forcing him to be in his dad\'s situation. Making Jordan act emo is a hobby of mine.
Myessssss!!! I've been dying to know what's up, and I had to wait about three emails to read this!
“We’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
It needs an end quote.
When did my friends get hormones? And where was I the day they were passed out?
Haha, that was so true, and yet so Jordan. It's scary how much I can relate to a prat. *sticks out tongue*
And how, pray tell, do you say 'loquacious?'
This chapter was perfect for me, being an American- everyone's so hunched up about the elections in your story, and the tops news on American TVs is whether Hillary Clinton is a *bad word* or not. Typical of you, to pick Apple, since Ron doesn't like him and you have the tendancy to be rather cruel to your characters. I can't wait to see what 'plans' Apple has.
Jordan's team reminds me of Harry's back when Oliver was Captain *dries eyes* I love how Haley commentates, and uses Lee's new word. Jordan is a bit of a snotty jerk- if he were my brother I'd say the same thing.
YAAY!!! They won!!! Even though now we miss out on some good Jordan angst :( ... Haley's ranting was awesome, 'specially how she's telling everyone thier heights and ages and everything.
OMG!!! IT'S RIGGED!!! And I thought Marina was behind it... but I'm bad at guessing...
which she couldn’t imagine being very pleasant, as Ted’s shoulders were bony, but that was hardly the point
Yes, but he's adorable besides, so the bony shoulders don't matter :)
WHAT! They tie! But... but... I feel bad for Emma. And for the mental image of the cottage cheese. Your mother must have an iron stomach.
OH! She wins! (This is what happens when I review and read at the same time) That is too cool! It was a bit too fast, in my opinion, but I'm glad she won, even if it was totally unexpected.
I adore the Haley/Jordan bickering... very realistic.
I KNEW SHE WAS GONNA BE AN ANIMAGI!!! I KNEW IT!!!!!!
Fringe, Whisk, and Lightfoot
Which is Fringe and which is Whisk?
I overheard him talking, and he’s going to do something illegal to the Muggles who come to the speech he’s giving tonight!”
I hate you (no, not really, you're too nice to hate you). This is, like, the worst cliffie in the history of cliffies. Do you know how long I'm going to have to wait to know what Apple's gonna do? (and that 'illegal' thing... well, I'm glad I don't have a sick mind, or else that would have sparked soem not-so-lovely mental images) All I suspect is that they're going to kick some serious *backside*
Despite from the exeptionally cruel cliffhanger, this was my favorite chapter so far. I really hope the next one's going to be up SOON!
Author's Response: LONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNG REVIEEEEEEEWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!
\"It\'s scary how much I can relate to a prat!\" It\'s scary how Jordan and Haley are both based on me in ways! Loquacious is pronounced \"low-KWAY-shiss.\"
My sister thinks Apple\'s a lot like Obama.
Hehehe, Emma thinking about how it can\'t have been comfy for Ivy because of Ted\'s bony shoulders is just another example of how Emma\'s a bit immature when it comes to romance. Ted is adorable, though.
I... think Emma was Fringe \'cos her Patronus is a tiger, and I think Haley was Whisk \'cos her Patronus is a bunny. *can\'t remember*
I love Haley! And Vladislav and Emma and Tyrone and... not Marina.
Vladislav wants to be a writer? *high fives* I was a little scared that it was gonna be something weird like he presses flowers in Hogwarts, a History or is afraid of green potato chips. He's very funny when he gets lines, though- and I think he should get married to Haley *stops fangirling*
I love the line, And with that, Team Sparkle sat down and continued their discussion while the camera crews went about their business, blissfully unaware that their equipment was completely useless. It's so funny, for some reason. It also sounds really good.
(to him, a hedgehog was just as exciting as a hippopotamus) Yes, yes, but you can buy a pygmy hippopotamus from P. Sherman at 42 Wallaby Way Sydney! (Don't call the loony house, I was merely describing my science project to you.)
What are echidnas?
I love the Ivy/Arden chat... they make good friends, I think. And it's funny, because now that I've read this story, the name 'Arden' keeps popping up everywhere! It's like Nagini in the Dark Lord's Blog when she replaced her name with the people's comments. But anyways, back to your story...
And I love Ivy/Ted! They're so indescribabaly adorable together, it has me squeeing with joy. And when Arden said they were mates... *giggles* And now I get why Ivy has quite the workout in this chapter...
And Jordan and Giorgi... one of the best parts of the chapter. Those two should definetely be a couple.
*gasp* He wants to tell the Muggles about magic? But they won't believe him! Unless then he'll use magic on them to prove magical-ness... *faints* Evil, evil cliffie... what's the next chapter entitled?
So, to sum it all up... you're brilliant.
PS- I might try the drawing thing, but I'll need to work out a link and it'll be horrendously bad. (Why'd you ask for favorite song? Does youtube not have enough? ^_^)
Author's Response: Oh my gosh, I feel terrible now for making Vlad a wannabe writer and not any of those insane things that you said... I should\'ve done that. That would be absolutely brilliant. I\'ll tell you now that he doesn\'t marry Haley, but I do think that Haley likes him (I can\'t speak for Vlad-- for some reason, his feelings are a bit of a closed book to me). YAAAY, Finding Nemo reference... OOooOOOoOOo. Echidnas are egg-laying hedgehog type things that are indiginous to Australia and totally awesome... THEY PROBABLY LIVE ON WALLABY WAY, SYDNEY!
\r\nIs the name Arden really showing up everywhere? Funny, I was gym partners with a girl named Arden in eighth grade (when I began writing this story), and she\'s the only person I\'ve ever known who inspired a character name. I thought it was such an unusual name. It\'d be cool if it became a popular name. The next chapter will be entitled \"In Which Pigs Fly And Emma Hugs Tyrone.\"
\r\nI\'d love it if you entered! I wouldn\'t care if it was \"horrendously bad,\" I\'d just be really touched!
First off, lovely title.
Oh, I love to see Jordy take action. I've missed him.
I love the line, "Ivy, have you ever seriously considered becoming, like, a marriage counselor?” It's so funny and random in such a dark situation... but I'm glad Marina felt guilty. Serves her right.
I knew Emma would get Tyrone! I actually squeeed aloud when I read that part.
she almost wondered whether she really knew her brother after all.
I really like that line. It's kind of deep for Haley to think such things, but it's nice when she has her moments.
This chapter could really be a part in a movie- in a good way. It's all about teamwork and convincing Arden she's 'part of the group'... I like Arden, even though I didn't at first when she was all mopey.
GIORGI!!!!!!!!! I missed her! Beauitful description, by the way- who doesn't love red and white polka spotted neckties and plaid Converse?
He told her he was a wizard! Well, I knew that, 'cuz I read the excerpt on the forums... but it's so neat to read it in the chapter.
Giorgi's jaw drop like a broken elavator I could actually imagine that
I was kinda scared at first that the eight people were going to be, like, Tancred's followers or something, but then I remembered that the others were following him ^_^
The part about the pigtails at the end was the best. It really shows that Emma's getting 'ready to rumble'.
All in all, a brilliant chapter, defienetely worth the wait. But the next one should be up faster!
Author's Response: Thank you! But usually my chapter titles are pretty weird... Great, now I\'m imagining everyone singing \"We\'re all in this together\" to ARden... that would be kind of awesome. How very wonderful of you to leave me this review... I felt a bit odd because I left you such an obscenely odd review for your odd story the other day. The next one will be up as soon as I get home from school.
