A little bit about me, I'm a teenager from the US and I want to be a journalist when I'm older! My 4 favorite things in the world are my family, Harry Potter, frozen yogurt, and converse lo-tops!
I'm a HUGE romance fan, but Harry/Ginny, James/Lily, and Fred/Angelina (or George/Angelina) in particular! I also LOVE marauder era fics!
But I'll read just about anything as long as it's interesting!
Anyway, I'm a GRYFFINDOR! YAY ME! which is odd, because I see myself as more of the Ravenclaw type, but I'm good! :D
Also, if you've never read a book by Shannon Hale, read one. They're great fantasy books!
Hey! Check out my poems, "The Moon and Sun", and "Were You There?" which are both about Lily and Snape!
Also, my first fic, "Remembering the Freak", about Petunia reading Lily's diary! So uber exciting, check it out!
Lastly, I respond to any and all reviews I get! So please tell me what you think!
Summary: So, itís James and Lilyís last year at Hogwarts.
All the year ahead of them full of spells, arguments, Quidditch, arguments, detention, arguments...But, this time, something is different. James Potter is more determined than ever to win Lily Evansís heart and she seems to be considering.
Maybe, just maybe, a year of rule-breaking, rule-following and fighting for their lives will liven up the romance at Hogwarts...
A story thatís centred on the (inevitable!) romance of Lily and James but also one that goes into the darker sides of that last seventh year. Prepare yourselves for a little R.A.B. , a few Horcuxes, a dash of lovesick Severus and more than a few brilliant moments between the fights, the laughs, the fluff and the danger!
Warnings for extra funny Sirius and Remus moments (that include a love-potion gone wrong and marriage proposals due to drink) , alarming giggling spells from a character who bears more than a resemblance to our own Loony Lovegood, Quidditch talk from a fun Alice Vance, evil Bellatrix and Narcissa, and Lily and James in the middle of it, falling in love without knowing...
AU warning (not for some horrifying reason as you may assume Ė like Lily dying or Remus turning into a chicken Ė but because two of the characters Ė namely Lucius and Bella Ė are in Lily and Jamesí seventh year as well when we know from canon that they're older! Just a minor difference but then I really needed some nastiness in the story!)
xxx leighpotter ;)
PLEASE post the next chapter soon! Can't WAIT to see what happens!
Author's Response: I love impatient reviewers! And, as I\'ve al;ready got most of chapter 11 ona scratchpad it\'ll be posted soon - I just have to fix a problem my computer has with my Word program and then...tata! Chapter 11 will be here!! Thanx for the review!
Summary: After taking different paths a couple of years ago, Ron and Hermione find each other again, both of them wondering if their separation was a mistake. This applies especially to Hermione, who is leading an empty, unhappy life next to her fiance.
UPDATE (12/7/11): Newest chapter posted. Let us hope next one doesn't take me a year.
I can't WAIT to read the next chapter!
Love Ron, Hate Michael! (even though he is a very well written character)
Author's Response: Awww... You can\'t hate Michael that much. I\'m kinda growing fond of him.
Here's your Easter Egg! I absolutely love this story! I admit that Sirius is being a butthead and I am officially the founder of the “I Hate Debbie Club”! The Slytherins are being a little bit scary, though I can’t wait to see what happens next on the story! Also I’m very angry at Snape for telling Hayley, because I’d have preferred Remus telling her himself, but she needed to know so I’m glad she found out anyways. Anyways, post the next chapter fast!
Summary: It's been more then a year since Albus Dumbledore's funeral. The trio had destroyed two Horcruxes when in a massive attack by Lord Voldemort and his followers, Ron gets killed and Hermione gets captured.
In this story, there is romance between Harry and Ginny. There is one more couple whom I will keep secret. You will know soon enough.
Many more things will come to light in the later chapters.
It's a great start!
Can't wait to read the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thanks! Exams have me on edge, but I will try my best to write the next chapter soon.
Summary: All her life Ginny has tried to live up to the expectations set by those around her, and more importantly herself. When Harry breaks up with her Ginny thinks she realises what she must do to acheive this perfection but this soon turns into an obsession she can't escape.
Warning: The main focus of this Story is on the effects of an eating disorder, if you get easily upset by such issues I suggest you dont read.

I'm a freak about people being obsessed with thin-ness, so thank you SO much for writing a fic about it!
I think it's great so far, by the way...
Author's Response: If you are the only person that learns something from this I will be happy. I really wanted to educate readers with this so it\'s wonderful to know that you have recognised that you find yourself obsessed by it, because once you know that you\'ll know when you really have got in too deep.
Thank you for reading and reviewing. emma x x x
Summary: A songfic to Avril Lavigne's song "Nobody's Home".

Summary: Lily hate James...and James loves Lily. But will they be able to look past their own pride and see the love that has formed between them? Or is what must be just a dream?
Note: this randomly got deleted, so here it is again....
Also, the warning is just a precaution for possible later chapters...
Oh gosh! Please hurry up and post the next chapter, because I can't wait!
Author's Response: I\'m working on it!
Summary: Based on the famous 'Twas the night before Christmas' with a Weasley twist, and told from Ron's POV.
No DH Spoilers!
I absolutely LOVE it! It's hilarious!
I especially liked the language you used to describe the things everyone is doing!
I think it would be really cool if you did a couple of these--using different Christmas songs or something!
Summary: Redemption has always had a funny ring to it...
Being disowned by her parents after a rather revealing and emotionally burdening event, NoŽl Potter struggles to rise above her outcast status, find financial security by fighting in an Underground illegal league of brawling, and eventually find a way back into the good grace of her family.
it's an interesting point of view, and an even more interesting story!
Can't wait to see the rest!
Author's Response: Thanks for reading! :]
‘Love and hate are quite similar when you think about it,’ James said thoughtfully.
‘What do you mean?’ Lily asked.
‘You can’t hate someone for no reason without loving them a little,’ he said.
Lily rolled her eyes. ‘That’s stupid,’ she said.
‘No it’s not. Why do you think guys tease girls they like? Most people use hate to hide the fact that they really love someone.’
Lily didn’t say anything, so James continued. ‘After all, love is really just hate with a smile.’
Lily Evans hated James Potter. She always had, and thought she always would. But people change. Opinions change. Sometimes the line between right and wrong blurs … as well as the line between love and hate.
ON INDEFINITE HIATUS. Check out my bio for more details.
I love it!
I was confused in the beginning about the Chloe thing. I didn't make the connection about her being Maddi's mom! O well...
Anyway, great start!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! And I can understand how you could get confused about the Chloe thing, because Lily calls her by her first name. :]
Summary: What happens when Luna challenges her friends to a game of Truth or Dare?
That is so cool!
Can't wait to see the next chapter!
Author's Response: Check back soon! And until then, I have another story up that you might want to read!
Summary: George is feeling depressed after his brother's death. Molly suggests to write out his feelings- but how will that turn out? A rather sentimental poem from George to Fred.
And if you still haven't read DH, well, prepare to be shocked.
Hey! Love this poem, I just have a few things to add!
You were my brother,
My very best friend,
We were there since the beginning,
But you didn’t make it to the end.
I like this, but I think it might sound better if you changed the 'we' to a 'you', and then took out 'you' in the last line
We all miss you,
Our favorite Weasley guy,
I think it was so unfair
that you had to die.
Taking out 'I think' might make this flow a little better
No more of our two-sided pranks,
I think it might sound better if you add an 'only' or 'now it's' before 'not', because otherwise it's kind of confusing
There’s only one Weasley twin-
Only one, not two blokes
You use 'only' twice right here, you could try 'instead of 2 red-haired blokes' or something
You were killed by a wall,
During Harry’s Hogwarts revolt,
'Harry's Hogwarts revolt' is a little wordy, instead of 'Harry's' what about just putting 'the'?
It wasn’t anyone’s doing,
Even Percy the dolt.
This sounds a little off to me, it might sound better like "it was no one's doing, not even Percy the dolt"
Mum told me to write this poem,
She said it would make me feel better.
But my poem is bad (no laughing in Heaven),
So I’ll write it like a letter.
The third line is longer than the other three, and doesn't make quite as much sense. (this is just me here, because I imagine heaven as whatever the person who has died wants it to be, and if it was Fred, I can hardly even imagine him not wanting to laugh)
There’ll be seven verses,
One for each kid,
Even though you’re not here,
I’m proud for what you did.
You should probably spell out "there will", and the second line could probably use more. It's just the shortest one and the one it rhymes with is a lot longer
I just wanted to say,
That I love you, Fred,
You’ll always be here,
Even though you’re dead.
I like this stanza a lot! great ending!
Okay, so I thought this poem was great! Those things are just things that I would have done, but it's completely up to you!
Author's Response: Thank you so much, Margaret! The constructive criticism is very helpful; I'll be sure to make a few changes. And thank you for all your lovely reviews, including this one!
Summary: Tonks has a Question and Remus has the answer... But will he tell her. Bare with me, this is my first fan fic.
awwwww... it's so sweet! I love it!
Author's Response: Thanks. I was trying to make it short but sweet.
Summary: The day after the Last Battle as Ron counts his losses, Hermione reminds him what was worth fighting for in the first place.
Cool! I liked it!
Never heard the song, though...
Author's Response: thanks! and the song is lovely. :)
Summary: Andromeda Black had always been different, and that got worse when she was sorted into Ravenclaw. Shunned from her family, she leans on a boy named Ted Tonks for support. *ONESHOT*
Author's Response: Short, sweet and straight to the point. Thank you!
Summary: Albus Dumbledore really did see socks when he looked into the Mirror of Erised. And this is the reason why.
Awwwwwwww... that's so sweeet! Love it! I always have wondered why Dumbledore liked socks so much, and that's a good explanation! Nice work!
Summary: When love prevails, no evil can divide it or poison the purest of feelings. Nor can it destroy the utmost defiance.
This is BertieBotsBeans741 and PadfootnPeeves writing for the Gauntlet: Round 6.
Oh my goodness I love it! I love the whole idea of love prevailing over everything and anything! Well done!
Oh my goodness I love it! I love the whole idea of love prevailing over everything and anything! Well done!
Summary: Voldemort has a problem worse than Harry Potter. Acne! Severus Snape, Peter Pettigrew, and Harry Potter are involved in concocting the cure, but would it succeed?
I adore it! That was completely fabulous! At first I thought Voldemort was a little too out of character, but by the end it TOTALLY worked! I especially loved the “Your beauty? Excuse me, but when have you ever been beautiful?” part! That was SUPER DUPER funny! Fantastic job, can’t wait to read more by you!
Author's Response: Thank you very much Margaret! I appreciate the fact that you took some time off your precious day to read and review my story. I always enjoy reviews and I'll be sure to try and create more fics for all of you to read! Cheers~
Summary: After battling the Death Eaters in the Department of Mysteries, Harry isn't the only one who struggles with the aftermath. Neville, too, has difficulties with what's happened, and finds himself talking to Luna for support. Set at the end of OotP.
Aw... Thanks so much Melissa! I absolutely loved it!
You portrayed both Luna and Neville perfectly!
Author's Response: Yay! I'm so glad you liked it! :D
