No, I'm not a parasitic fish, I'm a hyper, klutzy, random sophomore girl. Anyway, I'm really random and know all the words to "Knights of the Round Table" from Monty Python and the Holy Grail (love that movie), as well as most Les Miserables songs, by heart! I also want to be either a web designer or a writer of some sort when I grow up, but working with dolphins would be fun, too! I can solve a Rubik's Cube in 53 seconds and I LOVE chess. I also love my school's chess team captain. So is it any wonder that I love chess? Well, I didn't know he was the captain at first, so it's more like an added perk...
I am a proud Slytherin on the Forums. I banner and beta.
Favorite characters: Remus, Tonks, Luna and Sirius
OTP: Remus/Tonks, Neville/Luna, Tom/Minerva (Schmergo's drabble convinced me of this), Dumbledore/McGonagall and Sirius/Luna
Favorite creatures: thestrals and basilisk
Favorite writers: J.K. Rowling (of course), Victor Hugo and Dave Barry, all of whom I wish I could have just a shred of their talent!
I also write original fiction at The Red Chair. I'm Remora_The_Random. And feel free to add me on Live Journal, if you want. Just let me know how I know you so I don't go into cardiac arrest.
I may strike you as insane, but that's fine. I am, after all, the girl who named her rubber chicken "Gaylord Fontaine II," named the basilisk in COS Joe and gets up on her chair at lunch and sings random Monty Python and/or Les Miserables songs, as well as shouting things like "I'm on tv!" "You're my grandpa?" and "I'm magic!" in the middle of school, though none are strictly true. Yup. That's "Remora in a nutshell." Emphasis on "nut."
In closing, I would like to leave you with these words of wisdom: the coconut doesn't have a zipper.

Goodnight, Sleep Tight, Don't let the Pygmy Puffs Bite! by Roxy Black
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 34]
Summary: Tonks remembers the night so clearly, the night he had died and the war was still to be fought. poor Harry, he took it hard, but even as they were all upstairs in the hospital wing, Tonks managed to despair about her love. Her love which will last forever. No matter what.
That was a really good story. Great emotion and dialogue. I especially love the ending!
Summary: Ron plays chess with Harry while contemplating ruthless choices and options. HBP Spoilers.
I loved this story! Not only did it show a deeper side to Ron, but it also incorporated my favourite game! (I'm a chess geek, I admit it freely.)
And on top of that, your writing style is beautiful, and I love all your comparisons of different people to the chessmen. This is definitely going to be added as a favourite.
Author's Response: Thank you for the lovely review. It's always wonderful to get a review at any time, but it's always a nice surprise to get one for an older one like this. I'm chuffed you think the style beautiful and the story fav-worthy.
Summary: The war is over, and newlyweds Remus and Nymphadora Tonks have decided to take a well deserved holiday. Too bad for Severus Snape that he just happens to be heading in the same direction. Warning: A bit of sexual innuendo and some references to gambling. Posted prior to DH.
Snape at Circus Circus...I could just picture what would have happened if he'd stayed...This was one of the funniest things I've ever read, although I do have to agree that 110 is probably more like the shade temperature...10/10 and adding as a favorite!
Nymphadora Tonks, a free-spirited Metamorphagus, finds herself questioning her life, not to mention her idea of love, when she meets a charming werewolf by the name of Remus Lupin....
A Remus/Tonks chapter-fic set OotP, looking at their drama, their comedy, and of course their romance.
I love this fic! I'm seriously on the edge of my seat waiting for an update...Please keep up the good writing!
Summary: Secret love is revealed for two people battling with their own demons, causing them to take a step back and ask some important questions...
Tonks put her hands on the sides of his face, turning it towards her, forcing him to look at her. She took a deep breath as Remus gently placed one of his hands over hers. He could feel her hand shaking under his own. She looked into his eyes.
“But do you love me?”
Check out the sequel "What Is Love?"
Awww! That's sad. Really good chapter, you captured Remus's emotions perfectly.
Summary: For Lord Voldemort, life is going swell, and everything is juuust peachy... until a ghostly visitor arrives. EXTRAORDINARILY silly.
EDIT: For some bizarre reason that I can't fully comprehend, this story WON the "Things that Go Bump In The Night" challenge in the Winter's Tale Challenge.
Funny! I was laughing from the very start, and it was so hard not to just laugh my head off (I'm in a library and they'd kick me out).
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I had a lot of fun writing it. I get kicked out of the school library so much...
Summary: They told me not to cry at night
They told me not to add
Harry is dead. Ginny mourns.
Mucho depressing. Awesome. Great poem!
Author's Response: Haha, the past 24-hours on MNFF have been AWESOME!!!! I GOT A REVIEW!!! Anyway. Thanks a lot!~ H_o_I_
That was hillarious!
Summary: Hermione and her two best friends, Harry and Ron, are on a trip with their sixth year Herbology class to Bodmin Moor. While searching for magical plants, Hermione stumbles on a door in the ground that leads her and the boys to the crumbling mansion of the time-travel obsessed wizard, William Rashleigh. After her encounter with Rashleigh, Hermione finds herself trapped in a time where magic is feared, witches are hunted, and the punishment for being able to do magic is death. Can Hermione survive The Salem Witch Trials?
A/N: This story is not for the faint at heart. The descriptions of death in the fic will be somewhat graphic and not suitable for young and impressionable readers.

Wow, this story was so sad, and so powerful. I've really enjoyed it. This past year, I've learned about the Salem Witch Trials in my American History class, which makes it all the more interesting. You definitely captured the emotions and descriptions perfectly and this story is going into my favourites. Well done!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I\'m really glad you liked it. It\'s my favorite Harry Potter story that I\'ve written, to date. I was immensely proud of it and I\'m glad that you enjoy it! :D
Summary: A year and a half after the end of the war, everything is going well for Tonks; she’s newly married and has recently been promoted. But is all the hard work beginning to take its toll? Mindless fluff. RL/NT.
Author's Response: Thanks!
Summary: 1st One-Shot for ElectronicQuillster's Summer 2007 Romance NEWT class by tc015 of Gryffindor House.
A mother's approval means a lot; Nymphadora Tonks just wished she had her mothers.
This story is great! It's cute and funny. This part made me laugh for so long:
Ted took a gulp of his coffee. “You know,” he said thoughtfully, “you remind me of myself.”
“That’s great,” she muttered. “I’m a reminder of a dilapidated old man. Let’s see where this is going.”
“No, comedian,” he replied, “your taste in guys.”
“Huh?” asked Tonks. “Don’t tell me you’re having an affair with a gay werewolf behind my mother’s back. She might hurl one of old cauldrons at you.”
Author's Response: Thanks!
Summary: Ever wondered why Florean Fortescue was taken by the Death Eaters?
Lord Voldemort is on the quest to find the best, evilest flavour of ice cream, and he will stop at nothing to get it.
This is a very short, very silly and quite OOC little one-shot written as consolation for the fact that "E-Journal" is on hiatus. It's based on a prompt given to me by the ridiculously talented Inigoenigma.
Nominated for Best Humour fic in the Quicksilver Quills awards!
That was hillarious! I loved it! I'm still laughing!
Author's Response: Awww,thanks! Cute username, by the way... reminds me of one of my OC\'s.
It's up, but they rejected chapter two. But not for the reason I thought they would...Mwa ha ha ha ha!
Author's Response: I will check it out... but I can\'t promise it\'ll be anytime soon. Grade reports come out today, and I\'ll probably be banned from the internet!
Since I don't know how to respond to a response, I'm doing this. Thanks! I'm glad you like my name. I like yours too. It makes me think of this thing my uncle gave me called "The Avenging Unicorn" with which you impale plastic people. It's great stress relief. I swear, they should make custom ones. There are some people I know and want to impale. Also, I've written a humor story and want to know if you think it's "funny farm" material or just plain funny or something like that. It's "Harry Potter and the World of Death". And it's also proof that I have a strange sense of humor.
Author's Response: HAHAHAHAHA... the Avenging Unicorn... I desperately want one. Your story sounds interesting! I\'ll read it for sure-- if it\'s not up on MNFF, can you send it to me? My email address is accessible via ze link on my profile.
Summary: Hermione stood, watching the sea dance up and down the beach. As she watched, tears trickled and dropped, one by one, down to the ground.
The Mental Disorders are only slightly suggested at the end.
Your writing style is wonderful! It paints a clear picture in my mind and is very sweet. 10/10
Author's Response: Thank you so much! -Ema
Summary: This fanfiction writer laments the loss of her favourite dark lord in a re-donk-ulous poem.
This is not very complimentary to Volders, so don't tell him about it if you see him around, okay?
Deathly Hallows spoilers.
Four times nominated for Best Poem in the Quicksilver Quills Awards!
That was great! I'm cracking up (still in library...but not the one that doesn't kick you out, even if you scream).
Author's Response: Thanks! Man, I wish I lived near that library...
Summary: DEATHLY HALLOWS SPOILERS
Many were heartbroken when they saw Remus and Tonks dead. But how did they die?
Aww! I just want to start out by saying that I LOVE Remus and Tonks. They have been my favorites since they came into the series and I was SO mad when they died. I love reading stories about how they die (I'm such a cheerful person, aren't I?) and this one was excellent!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! Remus was always my favorite character, and he and Tonks just went together. I liked her, too, although I envy her slightly. ;) Thanks again for the review!
Summary: As war rages around them, Remus and Tonks are pulled along with the tide. New, prejudical laws are passed, and the couple must take drastic action in order to stay together. When the climactic battle arrives, Tonks must make an impossible, heartbreaking choice. Follow the couple through the timeframe of Deathly Hallows. DH spoilers abound!
As the outline has expanded, the originally intended three chapters of this story have turned into twelve chapters of R/T goodness. :-)
Chapter 6 has been sumitted!
I love this story! Keep up the good writing!
Summary: Anyone heard those rumours about a Harry Potter musical?
It better be just like this.
No, but seriously, it's a spoof of the songs from Disney channel's infamous "High School Musical," telling the tale of JK Rowling's infamous "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets." (I was dared; I took the challenge.)
You will never see the Basilisk the same way again.

Twice nominated for Best Poem in the Quicksilver Quills Awards!
I read this the other day and forgot to review, so I will now:
This made me laugh for about ten minutes straight after I finished reading it. And shortly after, I watched the movie...It was all I could do not to laugh manically during the whole thing!
Author's Response: Wow, thanks! Hehehe, I was watching the movie the other day, and kept thinking about my stupid spoof.
