hi, my name is sarah. i am 18 years old and i live in adelaide, australia. currently i am studying a cultural tourism degree at flinders university. i also work full time at a cinema, which i adore. i love movies, and i have many favourites. i have been called a starwars nerd. and a harry potter nerd. and a pokemon nerd. most describe me as silly, sometimes funny, lovable and honest. i hope one day to travel the world, being a cultural student, that is one of my passions, seeing how others live. dont tell me your from the usa, or i will quiz you for hours on end, because it is number one on my list of places to visit. i love rugby union, but i dont support the wallabies, i support the new zealand all blacks. confusing i know, but the short story is, my parents are from new zealand. so rugby is what i know and breathe. i also feel i was born at the wrong time. i would have been quite happy to have been an 80's teen.

cachet is a name i found on a website of "cool names to name your dog" apparently its a name of some perfume. although i have yet to come across a perfume called "cachet" (i collect perfume) but anyway, cachet means "an official seal, on a letter or document" or "a seal of quality or prestige" i am hoping that this name rubs off on the fan fic i will eventually write, because i want it to be as good as some of the writing i have read on this site. however i also heard that cachet is some form of seal for prescription drugs, so maybe not.

this is my email address if you need to contact me:

but i hardly ever check it, so dont be offended if i dont answer.

There is nothing i can do but be amazed. Not just by this story - brilliant as it is sweet - but also by the sheer volume of stories you have written for the harry potter universe. This story caught my eye initially because of George. Fred's death was hard to come to terms with for us fans, and finding a fanfic about George's healing process was comforting.

But as i said, this story...just blew me away. The characters are deep, complex, the emotions are raw, there is humour, the perfect amount of fluff delivered with impeccable timing...all the makings of memorable fiction.

So, being impressed, i set out to find some of your other works. And i was again, blown away. There is over 50 of them! And after a read of some of the summaries, you have explored almost every aspect, every genre, every couple.

You are truly a great author in the making, and i look foreward to reading more of your fanfics, and one day, your own fiction.

Author's Response:

A librarian, writer, and critic named Lawrence Clark Powell once said, Unless their use by readers bring them to life, books are indeed dead things.

Thank you so much for letting my stories live in your imagination and for the wonderful encouragement! When I get my original novel published, I'll be hitting you up to buy it! ^_~

Shining Through Blackness by luinrina
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 49]

Summary: Past Featured StoryIsla was born into a well-known and respected family: the Blacks. She grew up with their traditions and was proud to be who she was – until she met someone who showed her that what she knew was not the only world.

Follow a young witch through her teenage years and discover how a traditional one will change and rebel against what she believed was the only truth.

Due to plot development in chapters nine and ten I've changed the warning from "None" to "Sexual Situations" for the rest of the story. In some chapters there are still punishments which do not qualify as “Abuse”; those are meant as reprimands for bad behaviour, a common method in the middle of the nineteenth century. If you can’t stand children being smacked by parents or others as well as any sexual situation occuring, do not read that story. You have been warned…

I am really enjoying this story so far, i think you have appropriatly captured the "mystique" of the black family, and the "norm" expectations of that time (as in, the formality of the father, and his wishes and families behaviour)

i like the way Isla is depicted, the way she thinks. when we read about the black family and their outrageous beliefs of pure blood and "mudbloods", we are, of course, as the reader we are immediatly outraged and wonder how they can possibly believe such things. Your story shows truly how these beliefs are perfectly normal and expected for them, how its just an everyday thing. like our own families beleifs are ours. Our upbringing has marks on our selves, and i like the way you depicted Isla.

anyway, as i said, i really like this story, and i will be following it. well done

Author's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely comment. I have grown really fond of Isla, for me she\'s no longer just a name on a family tree. Therefore I try as much as possible to depict her as a real living and breathing being with all the beliefs the Blacks hold for normal. I\'m also quite drawn towards the upper society of the nineteenth century and it\'s really much joy to write this story. Thanks for sticking, the next chapter should be up soon, seeing that it\'s already finished.
