"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."

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: What happens when Luna challenges her friends to a game of Truth or Dare?
Oh, I forgot my favorite part! The Ron/Hermione was adorable... I squeed inside.
Author's Response: You mean the passing notes? I think that\'s my favorite part as well. More note-passing, I say! Isn\'t Ron cute when he\'s clueless?
Hey, they didn't tell me you updated this one! *pouts* Another goody... your characters are so canon, it's scary! I wonder what this Shady Crimson stuff does!
Author's Response: I think sometimes the e-mails don\'t get through! I hope you like this chapter, and I hope Shady Crimson left it\'s mark!
Ooh, they got it good! You're very good at making up pranks... I wonder what Draco'll do for revenge! Excellent chapter, my dear!
Author's Response: Thanks for the kind note!
Summary: He is building walls, and they must be the strongest the world has ever seen to protect him. Yes, they will obscure the sun and hide the hills, but he still will build. He must.
STUBBY! Great poem, love. It was sad and mysterious. I don't think it was a waste of time submitting!
Who is the poem about, by the way?
Author's Response: :D PADFOOT! Thanks, mate. I tried to go with a more vague feel here that seemed to have a nice effect. Apparently, it wasn\'t a waste of time! -Stubby (who says you\'ll have to figure it out for youself or she\'ll tell a later reviewer)
Summary: The dying confessions of Azkaban are often left unheard. But one grey night, cold and alone in Azkaban, Sirius listens and finds the chill in the air is nothing compared to the one in his heart.
"Grey was the colour of moonlight tainted by the darkness of Azkaban and the stench of Dementors. Never white, it nearly blended into the walls, selfishly keeping its tranquil peace to itself.
Azkaban needed some peace. "
This is dragonwings of Gryffindor writing for the Colors of Loss Challenge!
Wow. First off, it started as a strong beginning, making a statement to set the mood.
Sirius's characterization was amazing. It was chilling, really, since he's still upset and a bit wild. I like how he notices the details about the woman and Azkaban. It gives the story a better feel.
I actually shivered when Sirius was thinking about his death and capturing Peter. I was shocked when the woman said she killed her son- I wasn't really expecting that!
The woman and Sirius were a good paito have a conversation with- she despises Muggle-borns yet he's okay with them, yet they talk to each other anyways. It was very in-character of him to hate the woman for killing her son; I could definetly see him doing that.
Overall, it was a very powerful story. I like how it started and ended with the same sentence. (I think there's a word for that, but I don't know it) It really puts the 'colors of loss' into perspective!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review, Padfoot! It was a rather last-minute entry (only for points, I\'m ashamed to admit *embarrassed*) but I did try to put some emotional effort into it and this is what came out! Muchos gracias, amiga!
Each member of the Black family had their own fate, whether it followed or went against the family's beliefs.
That was awesome! It rhymed, it made sense... great poem, dear. It was lightr even though it was sad. :)
Author's Response: Thank you! Writing about the Black family is fun.
Summary: She was once an abused daughter, turned belove wife of her own making.
This is the story of how she threw it all away, cast aside by her once adoring husband.
What effects will his hatred have on her?
Written by hemybabay82 of Gryffindor for the Colours of Loss challenge.
Hullo, Stacy, dahling!
Interesting plot idea you have hear. Not many stories are about Merope and Tom, but you did it justice.
Merope's appearance was visible and stuck to the books- you didn't try and make her beautiful or anything. I thought her characterization was great, even if we never really saw much of her in the books.
Tom's disgust was nicely written, too- I felt so bad when he left Merope sobbing!
Yes I did, you treacherous guttersnipe!
I suppose that wasn't supposed to be funny, but I giggled anyways. It reminds me of a word Roald Dahl would use to describe someone he didn't like. But I suppose that's how people talked back then, but even if they didn't, you made it believable.
And you included Burke! I thought it was cool how you didn't mention his name.
Very nice story, dear, even if it was sad ^_^
Author's Response: Ah, yes Burke. I can\'t really take credit for the idea of not mentioning his name. It borrowed the synopsis of that scene from Sammy/MissyQuill\'s Fear, and she\'s done a much better job of it than I. You should definitely check it out. >.<
Really Wicked: Stephen Schwartz's Wicked Gone Potter by Schmerg_The_Impaler
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 79]
Summary: It's another spoof by Schmerg_The_Impaler!
This time, it's "Wicked," by Stephen Schwartz, remodeled to tell the story of Voldemort's life!
I also have spoofs of Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and High School Musical on my profile, if anyone would care to read.
You. Are. Brilliant.
You have a real thing with these spoofs! *no sarcasm there* I haven't heard all the songs, but I'd probably like yours better. And sorry, I'd never sing one of your spoofs, because a) I can't sing, and b) I'd be laughing too hard to sing.
You should defienetly do a Hairspray spoof next. That'd be awesome.
PS- How long did it take to write this?
Author's Response: Ohhh, thank you so much, Padfoot! (And Peeves...) You\'re making me blush. It doesn\'t take me very long to write these... I seem to remember I wrote this on a car trip, but I also wrote \"Long-Distance Extendable Ears\" and the sixth chapter of \"Love A Duck\" on the same car trip. Unfortunately, I lost the notebook that contained this spoof until I mysteriously found it this week! It probably took me about two hours total because I know the songs from Wicked pretty well... my Les Miserables spoof took way longer, because the songs are a little more intricate and I didn\'t know the show as well when I wrote it. And Phantom... that was my first spoof and it took a REALLY long time.
Summary: A poem about those not often mentioned in the books...
Very nice poem, dear. You made a good point- there's a lot of characters who often ignored. 'Though we really doubt you’d care
If we were run over by the Knight Bus.' *giggles*
Author's Response: Thankyou! I really like that line too! :D Thanks again!
Summary: Albus Dumbledore really did see socks when he looked into the Mirror of Erised. And this is the reason why.
Aw, Fenn! That was really touching. I love how Dumbledore's attitude changes from the beginning to end, and how he was wearing the socks. That was a really good story, and my favorite part was 'itching his feet but warming his heart'
It even has a new little spot in my favorites... :)
Summary: “Lord Voldemort has never had a friend, nor do I believe that he has ever wanted one.”
-Dumbledore, HBP, ch. 13
Dumbledore was rarely wrong, only once did Lord Voldemort desire a friend. It started out as only a game…
First place winner in the Color of Love Challenge.
Nominated for Best Romance Between Other Characters in the 2008 QSQs!
That was an extremely captivating and well-written story. Tom was in-character, and I actually felt bad when Lydia introduced him to her fiancee. Hadrian getting murdered was typical of Voldemort- it's amazing how you could keep Tom evil but love someone at the same time.
Wonderful job! You seem to be a great author.
Pride and Pre-Juiced Plums: A Potter's Pentagon Love Story by Schmerg_The_Impaler
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 265]
Summary: A companion piece to the Potter's Pentagon trilogy... it's better if you've read the Potter's Pentagon trilogy, but you don't necessarily have to.
It's five years after Emma Weasley and her chums graduated from Hogwarts. Ted and Ivy are married, Haley is working at Madame Puddifoot's while trying desperately to break into show business, Jordan's doing whatever it is he does, and Emma is an Auror trainee working as a guard at the Chudley Cannons' stadium. The Cannons have actually been doing much better lately, due to their new star Beater, Tyrone Thomas. Unfortunately, Tyrone is Emma's ex-boyfriend. OH, THE AWKWARDNESS.
Follow Emma through her awkward adventures told in her usual insane way, as she experiences angst, hilarity, obnoxiously strange people, misadventures involving a deceptively dashing cad, Haley's wedding, the birth of Ted and Ivy's baby, and her own eventual descent into LURRRVE.
Written for the marvellous Vindictus Viridian's Pride and Prejudice NEWTs class on the Fanfiction Beta Boards, based on Jane Austen's fantastic novel, "Pride and Prejudice.".
Nominated in the 2008 Quicksilver Quills Awards for Best Non-Canon Romance Story! And its lovely (haha) heroine, Emma Weasley, received two nominations for Best Female Original Character, while Haley Potter and Ivy Potter each received one! Thanks so much, guys!
Hooray for quick updates!
You spelled 'poachers' wrong. You have an extra 'a'. I'm not sure if that's the British spelling, or what, but it's there (to state the obvious)
Is Anatoly the Slytherin prefect, and we learn his name in the third book? Or am I simply hallucinating?
What do B.C.'s initals stand for?
I know I've asked a buncha questions, so I'll give some feedback.
EMMA AND TYRONE TALKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh, the awesomeness! I don't remember the line from the Lion King, though... And Emma and Wolfgang have a date! Ish! He's nice, but I personally prefer Emma/Tyrone, of course.I love 'as romantic as a car crash'- that line's brilliant!
The Haley-eyebrow thing is back! I remembered, just like I remembered Emma's pigtails from the Truth!
*gasp* Dean got remarried! The apocalypse! Tyrone's got a sister (I like the name Tabitha, by the way. How old's she in the story?)
Haha, now I know what's in P&P. Is it from the heart, or the fictional one of dear Emma?
Wonderful chapter... I'm not sure where it's going, but I don't care! 'Cuz it'll probably be good ^_^
PS- Who the heck is Hadrian Bellowes?
Author's Response: Hahaha, it\'d be awesome if the British spelled Poachers with two a\'s... that would be incredibly wacky. And yes, Anatoly (who I like to call Ani for no apparent reason) is the Slytherin prefect, and we meet him in the third book. VERY SHREWD! B.C. is... just B.C. I got the name from a dream where this guy who looked exactly like Michael Ball was handing out leaflets for some musical around my school with the name B.C. Quinn printed on them. I made up Wolfgang later.
\r\nThe Lion King line was at the very beginning, and old Scar said it to Mufasa--- \"Well, if it isn\'t my big brother, descending from on high to mingle with the commoners!\" I love Scar. Tabitha is a seventh year in this story, and you\'ll meet her in the third Potter\'s Pentagon books. It\'s really weird how she and Tyrone have such a similar dynamic to Darcy from Pride and Prejudice and his sister Georgiana... the character similarities is one reason why I picked this story.
\r\nI adore Pride and Prejudice and it\'s one of my favourite books, but I love to make fun of it. I, however, like Bingley a lot more than Emma does. He reminds me of Ted!
I was grinning like an idiot while reading this. The chapter title is absolutely marvelous, and I was so eager for any Potter's Pentagon updates I would have been happy if you wrote them scuba diving for Atlantis. But nevermind that.
Patrick reminds me of a totally obnoxious, on-crack version of Percy. And Clio... well, I know I'm not supposed to like her, and I live up to that. I didn't get the whale joke till you explained it later- very clever. I may have to use that sooner or later ^_^
I do NOT like Wolfgang. Partially because I don't like Wickham (I got to him in the actual book), and partially because of the backstory you told me about. But B.C. sounds cute. Aww, him and Haley doing a duet... *ship*! (Personally think her and Vladislav look better, but he's not in this story, so I'll have to deal.)
And while Emma's not very nice to Ivy (subtlety isn't her strong point), she does make a very good point. But ceramic kittens to the eyebrows? Ouch. Hopefully Ted will come back soon, before Emma drags his butt back to his wife.
Jordan dying... I hope that's not foreshadowing anything... >.< Does he get a line or two in here, or is he only mentioned? (I think I ask this in every review, haha. But Jorjums is slowly become my favorite, perhaps number two on my list.)
Anatoly is awesome. I love the part of about the dentures. It reminds me of a Garfield strip where Garfield uses his neighbor's dentures for his sock puppet...
And I sooo knew that Emma would have to dance with Tyrone! Knew it! I thoguht it was so cute how they stayed too long dancing- they make such an awesome ship! And the par tabout not calling her Em... for some reason, I really like that part.
Emma's P&P summary was odd to read, seeing as I've already gotten past that part in the book. I do admit that I like your version better (Jane Austen, if she were alive, would probably beat me of the head with Haley's ceramic kitten for saying this)- it's much more entertaining and easier to read and comprehend.
Excellent job- I was so excited when i got the email that you had updated! Hopefully you'll do the same very soon *nudge nudge*
PS- I know the song from the beginning! *is proud of herself* We watched it in choir, and even though I was signing yearbooks most of the time, I seem to remember this particular song. Cheers!
Author's Response: Haha, thanks! And do you scuba dive for Atlantis often? Because... I KNOW I DO! (Okay, sorry, I\'m so random.) Your description of Patrick is SPOT-ON, yo. He\'s a mix between Mr. Collins from \"Pride and Prejudice\" and Mr. Elton from another Jane Austen book called \"Emma.\" (Yes, it\'s a coincidence that my protaginist has the same title.)
\r\nAs for Wickham, Wolfgang isn\'t just based on Wickham... he\'s based on a couple of other Jane Austen heroes-- there is A LOT of John Willoughby in him (from \"Sense & Sensibility\"), and maybe a touch of Frank Churchhill and Henry Crawford. Now, I really, really like the character of Willoughby (call me crazy), but Wolfgang\'s character goes in some... interesting directions.
\r\nActually, Vladislav IS in this story. You\'ll see him a few times later on-- he\'s just not in the third Potter\'s Pentagon book (Which I just submitted). Jordan is in the story, too, but closer to the end. He has a small but very important part in the story.
\r\nI like Anatoly. I don\'t care if Emma doesn\'t like him; Emma\'s a dork. Oh my gosh, I think I read that Garfield comic, but in German! For some reason, I have all of the Garfields in German... no clue why. I like my version of Pride and Prejudice better, too! ^_^
\r\nThat scene from the Phantom movie IS quite memorable. I watched the movie with two guy friends, and they spent the whole scene commenting on her cleavage. Blegh.
Hurrah, an update!
Haha, me likes the banana song. Tech me the tune, and I'll sing right along with Haley ^_^
Ah, I'm wayyyy too much like Emma. The whole sympathetic thing-- totally me. It's scary.
Vaultz looked as though a cupcake had just begged him not to eat a plate
HAHAHA! I just snorted some chocolate chip 'n' cookie dough ice cream... 'tis a hilarious line! I love Emma's sarcastic comments.
Argh, I hate Vault! And Patrick! *stabs them with fork* Who cares if she was hanging out with Wolfgang... ooh, wait till Tyrone hears about this...
Hehe, I love the idea of Emma being an assasin wearing black leather. I can only guess who she'd assinate (is that a word?) But she was rather rude about Haley not coming sounding appealing... not the best thing to say to your best friend. AND EMMA NEEDS TO STOP THINKNIG THAT HALEY LIKES WOLFGANG. 'Cause I'm certain she doesn't... I hope!
Andy Yang's Tyrone's buddy, correcto? Don't ask me how I remember that. Does the Ravenclaw kid have a name? Ooh, Love a Duck! I like the Twilight reference... althoguh I doubt he'd be sparkly if he was in an alleyway, no? Those things tend to be darker... Anyway, Haley has quite the list of admirerees. My personal favorite is the dude who choked on strawberry ice cream at Florean Fortescue's.
I adore the Harry-Ginny banter. It made me laugh. I love your descriptions of Holly and Jonathan- especially since I tend to think Holly as more of a name for a gentle person; it's good to see on with the opposite personality. Jonathan reminds me of a calmer, more Luna-ish type of Jordan.
She looked at me like I was wearing a dead gorilla on my head Honestly, how do you think these things up? They're so funny!
Okay, I'm glad Terrence isn't in this story. He sounds sooo annoying. I mean, Emma can go out with him, but she can't stand Anatoly? How does that work out?
Teh toads return, myessss! I love Rover's blankie, and am extremely glad Fido's still alive and kicking (well, hopping). How long do toads live, anyways?
Ooh, so Tyrone did hear about it. That wans't the reaction I'd imagined- I thought he'd blow up at Emma for hanging around with Wolfiekins. Hopefully he'll be in the next chapter more- me hearts Tyrone!
Haha, the P&P summary was funnyyy. I've finished the book (heck yes hallelujah!), and yours seems to be much more entertaining, and easier to understand *le gasp* When I was reading the book, I was waiting for Tyrone or Wolfgang to come in, and then I remember that they aren't real. Shame.
Very fun read (I don't want to know how many times I've said 'fun' or'funny' in this review), and the awkwardness was a good laugh. Hopefully it won't be long before the next chapter comes up- the wait is always hard for your stories!
PS- You're going to faint... but who's Michael Ball? Apparently he's a slightly chubby singer, but I've never heard of him. Guess I'll have to Wikipedia him...
Author's Response: I LOVE the banana song. If you go on youtube and type in "Put a banana in your ear," and you will hear the song. Or, alternatively, watch "Charlie The Unicorn 2". The scary lipstick santa walrus who sings the song has the freakiest voice ever. I recommend the Lion King version. I sing it with a bunch of my friends in public.
Wolfgang is an attractive young man. Haley is a flirtatious young girl. I think it would only make sense for her to have a crush on him. You have an amazing memory-- yes, Andy Yang is Tyrone's fwiend. ^_^ It's cool that you'd call Jonathan a Luna-ish Jordan... that sounds like a pretty great description. I should remember this one.
Actually... Terrence DOES show up in this story. Sorry to disappoint you. But, to be totally honest, Emma doesn't like Anatoly because (a. Anatoly's a Slytherin (b. Anatoly was particularly unattractive and even more particularly weird back in school, and (c. Anatoly's not at all impressed with Emma.
I'm not sure how long toads live, but Tyrone takes such freakishly good care of his toads that they'll probably live to be a million years old. Tyrone is in the next chapter a LOT, so you're in luck.
MICHAEL BALL IS MY FAVOURITE PERSON IN THE WORLD. THAT'S WHO. No, sorry, okay. Here we go. Michael Ball is a musical theatre performer and solo artist who played Marius in Les Mis, Raoul in Phantom, Alex in "Aspects of Love," Caractacus Potts in Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang, Fosco in "The Woman In White," Joe in "Sunset Boulevard" and a million other roles. Right now, he's playing EDNA TURNBLAD in HAIRSPRAY on West End. You have no idea how much this thrills me, because Edna is one of my favourite musical theatre characters. Anywho, if you want to see Michael Ball, go on youtube and search "Michael Ball Empty Chairs." I doubt you'll be disappointed!
Oh. My. God.
That was brilliant! It had an amazing amount of funniness, yet was kept *mildly* sane.
You got the Princess decals form your sister, didn't you? >.< Not to be a stalker, but I think you mentioned in a review once that your sister liked princess decals. *shrug* Curiousity never killed my cat! (Nevermind that I don't have a cat to kill...)
Wolfgang's pretty cool. Will we see his struggling-musician-brother in later chapters? (It seems like we introduce an OC each chapter- that's cool though- it keeps it interesting.)
he looks a lot like a mop with a smiley face painted on
I want one! ^_^
Ivy's pregnant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I havta admit, I could kinda guess from the 'no, you tell' banters. I thought Emma would say something smart when Ivy said 'We're pregnant', cuz she's the only one whose pregnant, if you know what I mean. I'm with Emma on the whole babies and how disgusting it is to think about your friends having them... but they'll be a good Mummy and Daddy. I think they should have a girl... wanna confirm that? *wink wink*
The 'I'll just eat a baby' line was hilarious, mind. I might have to borrow that one ;)
The werewolf part was sad at the end. I hope Ted'll be okay! But will the baby be a werewolf? WIll Ted be all angsty like his dad when his wife's pregnant? WIll I stop asking questions, because I know you're not going to answer them?
I hope the next chapter comes at lightning speed! WIll Jordan be in it soon? Does he have a girlfriend *Giorgi*? (Urgh, here I go, asking questions you probably won't answer)
~Padfoot (and Peeves)
Author's Response: Wow, it\'s so comforting to know that I\'m at least mildly sane! I was getting worried there for a bit. Yes, my sister and I share a room, and she\'s covered ours with Disney princess decals! Now, I\'m probably the biggest Disney fan in the whole world, but I\'m not such a fan of princesses, especially the old fashioned ones like CInderella and Snow White who populate our room.
\r\nWe will see his struggling musician brother quite soon indeed. The next chapter is the last one that introduces new characters, and after that it settles down more. I just didn\'t want to attempt to introduce everyone at once!
\r\nI seem to remember awhile ago, someone wrote a review saying they wanted a Ted action figure, and I said, \"Just draw a smiley face on a lollipop and you\'ll have one...\" That would be pretty cute, too.
\r\nI think Ted and Ivy would be adorable parents. ^_^ As for the baby being a werewolf, well, it said in Fantastic Creatures And Where To Find Them that you can only become a werewolf through a bite, so I figured it wasn\'t like AIDS and could be passed on to offspring. I never even considered that a baby could be born a werewolf. So, no, the baby won\'t be a werewolf-- but even if the possibility was there, I don\'t think Ted would be that upset, although that werewolf conflict may have been a problem.
\r\nAs for Jordan, well, he\'ll be in the story later, but he doesn\'t have much of a part-- he has a small but important part. Because including him much at all would mean huge spoilers for the third book.
So, I haven't reviewed the last chapter of PP yet... whoops! I'll do that sometime soon, I promise!
Heehee, I missed this story- I had to reread the last chapter, because I'd forgotten what happened.
Tyrone's letter was long... but much easier than explaining it in dialogue. Ivy's sweet, and I love the crazy twins. What commercial is the 'lint licker/cootie queen' from? Orbit?
CASSIUS BALTHAZAR! The werewolf, not the elephant! I take it his role is changed in this story...
My sister's going to see South Pacific tonight, so I squee'd a little when I saw the lyrics.
Great chapter- I've really missed you and your awesomeful writing *hugs*
PS- You mentioned that there's a character in this story who's alive, but dead in PP. Who is it? Is it supposed to be Balthazar or something? I ish confused.
Author's Response: Why thank you so much, Em! Yeah, the reason why Tyrone had a letter was because Mr. Darcy wrote a letter in the book, and I tried to make it match. And yes, Balthazar is indeed different in this universe. And congrats on identifying the Orbit commercial. AWWW, lucky duck, I love South Pacific! And yes, the person who's alive but dead is Balthazar. Ding ding ding!
Ah, who doesn't love their best friend singing show tunes to them at five in the morning?
Very interesting, having this story in Emma's POV. I'm not sure I'll like it as much as Potter's Pentagon (because, of course, you can't beat that), but I'll definetely give it the chance.
Love the cliffie-ish cliffie at the end, by the way. Nice way to set the story off.
Author's Response: Thanks! Great to see you around here again! It\'s a very different... kind of story from Potter\'s Pentagon, because it\'s pretty Emma-centric and it focuses on romance, so you probably won\'t like it as much, but you might get some giggles and some light entertainment out of it.
Character Y marries Character Z? *gasp* Thanks for spoiling the rest of the series, Schmerg!
But... back to the chapter, whiuch you actually wanna hear about, and not my crazy rantings. I liked it better than the first chapter; it's starting to move along at a very nice pace.
Patrick drives me up the wall. I think he and Jordan should have lunch together- any chance of that? ;) Ol' Patrick would probably be squished into a sandwich if he says 'hanky-panky' one more time.
How do you pronounce Clio? I'm pronouncing it Cleo, but I'm not sure if that's right. Reminds me of clipboard, if you ask me.
And there are way more fish in the sea than some self-absorbed, pretty-boy Quidditch superstar.
Yes, but that self-absorbed, pretty-boy Quidditch superstar is going to marry Emma and live happily ever after. Says me.
I hope chapter three's up soon!
PS- Ivy and Ted are married! I hope tha tisn't AU from the trilogy, though- them as a hubby& wife is too cute! *stops fangirling*
Author's Response: Oh, that saucy Character Y... didn\'t you know he was having an affair with character X? I think Patrick is worse than Jordan, and I would not wish such atrocity as lunching with him on Jordy-poo. 0_0 Patrick reminds me of someone I actually know, and he should NOT be squished into a sandwich because no one would dare eat him. BLECH. And... my mum says \'hanky-panky.\' She says we shouldn\'t have school on Valentine\'s Day because of hanky-panky.
\r\nClio is pronounced \"Cleo,\" though I could be wrong.I believe Clio was the muse of history in Greek mythology and it means \'to make famous.\' I wanted to name her Cleo, but that name always makes me think of the jelly-roll nose sister from the Amelia\'s Notebook series. If you\'ve read Pride and Prejudice, Clio is the Caroline Bingley character, so beware! (I picked the name Clio because all of the letters in it can also be found in the name Caroline, and also because I loved the name.)
\r\nYou\'ll see Ted & Ivy in the next chapter. They\'re so cute...
What is a story without a scandal?
Underneath every burn hole on the tapestry of the Black family tree, there is a story, and underneath every story, there is a scandal.
In 1924, the Blacks were the most powerful family of the Wizarding World. They were greedy, back-stabbing, malicious, and power-hungry. And Cedrella was no exception. She was her father's favourite daughter; the pride of the Blacks, and it has earned her a conceited nature like no other.
But during her seventh year at Hogwarts, her life begins to become a little more clear, her family a little more conniving. She is arranged to wed the infamous Abraxus Malfoy and has people watching her every move to make sure she follows through. It makes it even more difficult when Septimus Weasley, a blood traitor and fellow classmate, starts to convince her, that for once in her life, she could have what she wanted.
A scandal forms between the two; a forbidden love between Black and Weasley behind the walls of Hogwarts. If they are found out, their lives will be ruined. But even under the opposition, what a Black wants...
a Black gets.
Oh, my! Cedrella seems so much worse than she was on the character thread! ^_^ I'm really interested to see how this fic turns out. I felt bad for the ones Cedrella doesn't like; I wonder if her attitude will change.
Anyways, wonderful start- I'll defientely favorite this one. Please kepp this one- it's really worth the update wait.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! And yes, Cedrella can tend to be quite awful and biased. She\'s not the typical person you would root for, but she grows with the story! And I will update soon. Trust me. I love this story.
Voldemort: The Psycho Dark Lord of Hogsmeade (Sweeney Todd Gone Potter) by Schmerg_The_Impaler
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 41]
Summary: The final installment of my set of Broadway musical spoofs about Voldemort's life!
This is Stephen Sondheim's brilliant musical, Sweeney Todd, but drastically warped and twisted by me. If you ever wanted to hear a song where Voldemort tries to encourage Fenrir to eat various Potterverse characters, this is the fic for you.
My other two spoofs about Voldemort, those of Les Miserables and Wicked, can be found on my profile. I've also got spoofs of Phantom of the Opera, High School Musical, and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Enjoy!
More scandalizing than ogre porn
That line sent me to giggles.
You're brilliant, dear- I would copy'n'paste my favorite parts, but that would simply be the whole story into this cute little box.
Harry=spray sounds scrumptious, as do Lion King and Beauty and the Beast.
Keep these coming!
PS- Is there anything that does rhyme with Lovegood?
Author's Response: Hehehehe, your name is PnP... that\'s the abbreviation I always use for Pride and Prejudice. I\'m glad you liked the ogre porn line, because I stuck that in at the last minute, unable to think of any more rhymes. STEPHEN SONDHEIM IS HARD TO SPOOF.
