Hey everyone! :)
I'm not sure if you remember me or not (more than likely you have stumbled upon one of my fics and ended up here), but I have been a member of MNFF for about three years now, and slightly unactive this past year. eeek!
Today, however, I had an epiphany and realized how much I missed writing and decided to pop on over here and check out the old site. hee hee (old habits are hard to break).
Anyways, I feel terrible that I haven't been able to finish my stories, especially TFY. I'm going to try and a couple of chapters this summer so keep checking for updates. Hopefully I'll see you all around the boards once and a while! :D
Keep writing!

More than Meets the Eye by lilybobily7
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 194]

Summary: First problem: James Potter is Head Boy. Second problem: Why is he acting so different? The James Potter that Lily Evans knows is arrogant and conceited and loves Quidditch and bullying his “inferiors” with an unimaginable passion. This year he’s kind and charming and much more, shall we dare say it…mature. He is also much more distant than he has ever been in all her years at Hogwarts. In her seventh year, Lily finds out that there is much more to James Potter than meets the eye and together they set out on the long and precarious road to each other’s hearts.

I'm glad to see this updated! This is really starting to get interesting. I'm glad Olivia's gone--she was sooo annoying. I wants more! :) Update soon.

--ginnygirl16'

Author's Response: Thanks! Yes, Olivia was annoying, but necessary in the story. ;) And I'll try to update soon. But, sometimes even if I add the next chapter right away, it still takes the mods like 2 weeks or so to validate it. ~Julia~

Hey! I feel terrible for being too lazy to review until now. I've been following this story since you had the fourth chapter up and have really enjoyed it. Your preview of chapter 16 is awesome and I can't wait for to read it. Hopefully it is up soon. Keep up the awesome writing!

Author's Response: I'm glad you like the story. =] It makes me feel good when I hear from readers. Thanks for the compliment on the chapter 16 preview. I'll try to have the chapter up soon but things still need to be edited. Again, thanks for reviewing! ~Julia~

I have been checking daily to see when this chapter would be up...I can't believe I missed it. Any ways, this was a great chapter--you have now earned the spot of most favorite story! Keep up the writing, I hope that the next chapter will be up soon!

--ginnygirl16

Author's Response: Oh, I'm so happy to hear that! You made my day. =] And I'm glad you liked the chapter. I submitted chapter 17 a couple days ago so hopefully it will be up soon (assuming it gets validated). Chapter 17 was one of my favorites to write..so I hope you'll like it. ~Julia~

 

The Lions of Gryffindor by Equinox Chick
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 335]

Summary: Past Featured StoryIt is June 1976 and The Marauders are at the top of their game. From the outside they look to have everything.But appearances, as the saying goes, can be deceptive.

James is discovering that not everything in life is his for the taking. Sirius knows he will have to defy his formidable family. Remus lives in constant fear of his life beyond Hogwarts. As for Peter... Well, Peter is struggling to live up to his friends.

The ties of friendship are strong, but war is raging and with a dark power rising those ties will inevitably fray.

Added to the mix is an adversary called Severus Snape, some lost House Points, a prank or two and a whole lot of Lily.

This is a Marauder tale.

This is a story of what made them special.

This is a story of why it started to go wrong for The Lions of Gryffindor.

OH MY GOOD GODRIC! Lions of Gryffindor won the 2009 QSQ for Best Marauders' Era Story. Amazed and incredibly grateful to those who nominated, judged and have beta'd this fic. THANK YOU.

I'm really enjoying this story so far. You have an excellent knack for writing the Marauders true to character.

“Ah, say no more, Prongs. You want to study another sort of figure,” Sirius joked and dodged James’ punch.

Oh, God, this line killed me. It was great. You've really got Sirius down-pat, and I am enjoying reading about Lily, not suddenly falling for James, but slowly warming up to him. Keep it up, and keep the chapters coming.

--ginnygirl16

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you like Sirius; he is my favourite to write. The chapters will keep coming, I just need to avoid all those cliches (you know the ones I mean.) Thanks again, I really do appreciate people reviewing. Carole xxx

hey! This is one of my definite favorite stories. Every time I read it i find myself choking back tears. It is excellent. Two people I want Fred to vist- Ginny and Molly- when is that happening? I didn;t even think he would visit Hermione, and I wasn't thinking Harry either although now that you've included her, I guess he's going to be getting a visit somethime soon too eh? Not that I am complaining. I thought it was sweet. Keep writing more!

 

Trickster by Willow Rosenberg
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 131]

Summary: After the disastrous events of the end of the Marauder's fifth year, a fuming Lily Evans decides that that arrogant James Potter and his friends need a taste of their own medicine. The straight-laced Prefect suddenly finds herself pranking her class's trickiest boys--and maybe even enjoying it. Coupled with a series of mysterious apology letters that Lily has begun receiving, it's bound to be an interesting year.

Babysitting the Marauders by Pivotal_Love
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 2]

Summary: Gabrielle LeCorte grew up living next door to the Potters and they were like her family. When they started school she was given the task to 'keep an eye' on James Potter and try to keep him out of trouble. This was easier said than done, especially once he met Sirius Black, Remus Lupin and Peter Pettigrew. She became best friends with Sirius Black and was lucky enough to hang around with the infamous Marauders, even if she was more like a babysitter. Would she be destined to clean up after them her whole Hogwarts career or would she break away and become something separate from just the 'Marauder’s girl'?

One Sweet Love by AlexPotter
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 13]

Summary: Love is something that shouldn’t be messed with. Like a bullet waiting to be shot, ready to destroy anyone in its path. But Lisa pulled the trigger! It was a mistake, although she knew that once it had happened, there was nothing she could do about it.

It had all started the day Lisa set eyes on Cedric Diggory. In a way, she was curious to get to know him better. To understand how his mind worked. In many ways he was a mysterious character in her mind. Little did she know, in her sixth year, all that was about to change…

Lisa Wood is a sixth year prefect at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She is the younger sister of Oliver Wood, previous Gryffindor Keeper. Lisa falls for Cedric Diggory, but she has competition in the form of Cho Chang. Can she win his heart?

Hey guys! This story has been out for a LONG time, and I'm sorry. The good news is that I'm working on the 2nd Chapter, so expect to see it here soon! [15/06/10]

Reviewer: ginnygirl16 Signed

Another good chapter! Great job, I am really starting to get into this story now.
Just a few nitpicks, and they are mostly associated with the timeline:
1) Ginny would have been in her third year during the time of the triwizard (though, I swear, my favorite part so far has been the mention of a second-year hitting her with a bat-bogey hex, after Lisa told her that she couldn't get her a date with Harry Potter. Honestly, I think that is one of the best lines I have ever read in fanfiction:) 2) Cho would have been in fifth year, not sixth year. It says in HP that she was a year older than Harry;)
Anyways, I am sooo loving this story. I love the characters, and the mood and everything. I am so excited to see where you take this. Oh and thank you muchly for your awesome review for my story. It has been updated as well if you wanted to keep reading. *wink, wink, nudge, nudge* (Don't feel obliged to though.)
Anyways, I very much hope to see more of this. Lisa is an amazing OC and Cedric is so IC. Great job, and keep up the great work--ginnygirl16

Brothers & Sisters by ringobeatlesfan4
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 17]

Summary:

They fight. They argue. They threaten never to speak again. But in the end, it’s all alright. Because they’re brothers and sisters, or at least that’s what it feels like. James, Albus, and Lily Potter are the closest siblings you’d ever find. Rose and Hugo Weasley have their differences, but in the end, they would die for each other. And as for Scorpius Malfoy… he’s unlike anything the others have seen before. But he’s okay… because he saved them on countless occasions.

This is the story of the bonds between siblings, cousins, and friends. It’s the story of forgetting the past to create a brighter future. And it’s the story of learning to let go of the old, and holding on to the new.

well done. I love to read second generation stories. I am so glad that Hugo is like Hermione, rather than Rose. Everyone always makes her out to be the book worm. Anyways, I look forward to reading more of this story.

--ginnygirl16

Author's Response: thanks so much, ginnygirl16! I, too, agree that a lot of authors make Rose be the Hermione-type one of the Weasley children. I've always seen Hugo like Hermione, and that appeared to be the case in here as well. Thank you for reading and reviewing, and the second chapter should be up soon! {BeccA}

 

Unwanted Gifts by jenny b
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 7]

Summary: Lily Evans and Severus Snape were best friends. Always had been, perhaps always would be. But there is a thin line between them – a line that has always held Severus back from showing Lily how he really feels about her.

One Christmas, he steps over the line, and gives Lily a simple gift she did not ask for. A kiss.

--ginnygirl16

Author's Response: Yep, you were first. :) Thanks for the review!

 

Summary: Severus Snape has always regretted calling Lily Evans a Mudblood - so much so, that he is reluctant to even let go of the memory. It's a painful memory; depicted in slow motion and complete with raw feelings. But it's all he has left to remember the fiery red head girl who stole his heart and never gave it back.

Hello!

I would like to start off by saying that I enjoyed this chapter. You gave a nice tone to 'the days following the battle' which was nice to see.

I liked how you tried to show grieving while at the same time, having the characters joking and trying to hide their feelings.

However, saying all of this, the characterization is not working for me at some parts. When Ginny is crying and then all of a sudden she is laughing about Ron wanting to eat, seems a little rushed and unrealistic. I think, also, that Mrs. Weasley doesn't seem too upset in comparison to how we have seen her portrayed before, but maybe she is just trying to deny Fred's death?

One small spelling error that seems rather repetitive is your spelling of 'ok'. Generally in writing you would write the whole word out so that it would say 'okay.'

I also found that for the amount of dialogue you had written there could have been more description. It is sometimes hard to get a feel for the scene and picture it when you are constantly reading dialogue, which makes it harder to follow.

Now, there is one thing that I would like to mention here as it had the most effect on me. I loved your little bit about the 'war symbol'. Your description of it was perfect, not too much or too little, and actually brought a lump to my throat. The way you had Ginny guess that it was Dumbledore, how it was Percy who came up with it, was all perfect! I do think that 'war symbol' sounds a little strange, but other then that, I really enjoyed it.

The light humor that you added with Harry and the earlobes had me laughing, and it lightened the scene just enough, though I do think that the Ron always being hungry is rather cliched.

Just one last question for you, though. Where was Fleur? We heard about all of the Weasley except her. Did she go home after the battle? I'm inclined to think that she didn't, she would have wanted to stay with Bill and the family.

I am excited to see where you take this. Your writing has a way of drawing a person in, and the small french that you use at the beginning is very nice. I love the tone that is being set here, and I think that you have written the Ron/Hermione relationship rather nicely. Continue the great work!

Very nicely written. It is a lovely beginning to what I am sure will be a great story. I look forward to reading more. I think that this story has alot of potential, and is definitley going to be a favorite. Your words are very convincing, and make the readers feel as if they are there. Excellent job--I hope to read more soon. Good luck with the rest of the story.

Author's Response: Aww, thanks! And thanks for all your help and input - I really appreciate it :)

 

Summary: Ron and Hermione have always had a special connection. But mix in a fake French girl, a handful of dares, a cup of Hogsmeade trips, half a pound of Malfoy, and a pinch of detentions, there is definitely some trouble to be anticipated.

A look into Ron and Hermione's fifth-year minds to experience the spazzness and crazyism in first person.

Disclaimer: Sadly, I am not J. K. Rowling. I'm not even famous. Heck, I only have one story up on Mugglenet. But I'm still glad I can walk into J. K.'s world. And tap-dance back out again.

Additional warnings: May contain fluff, excessive randomness (AU), and minor plot twists!

I would also appreciate if NikkiSue/Nicole could mod this for me :]

*squee* It's finally validated. *huggles*. Congratulations! Keep them coming:) I'll keep reading. I feel terrible because I'm the only one besides you who knows what happens, but at the same time I have this strange feeling that I'm very important, and am holding a prophesy or something in my hand. MWAHAHA. (ignore me, I'm insane these days.) Anways, hope to keep in touch. XDXDXDXDXD

Author's Response: Thanks, Sarah. Your review made me smile :). But you're not leaving yet, no no no. You're coming back... in 3 weeks...you said? And my story wouldn't be the same without you. I'm not sure if I ever sent you the last few chapters, though. I think I've made a few tweaks to the story though. Get excited for Chapter 4, because it's one of my faves. Four and Seven are good ones. (: P.S. You are very important! Lol. PM me!

Congratulations, Maddy! Boy, am I glad to see this one up, finally. Great job. I did find one mistake (being my nitpicky, beta self) which both you and I missed. Second last scene where Ron meets with Avril you have : to see a slight familiar-looking girl waiting around. We need to change 'slight' to 'slightly'. If you go into Manage Stories under your Account Info, you can edit this chapter and manually fix this yourself. It won't need to be Modded again, but it will make my conscience clear. (lol). Anyways, good job. I'll have chapter six to you soon.

--ginnygirl16

Author's Response: I'll have to fix that eventually. Too lazy. Sigh. Talk to you over on the beta boards! Chao!! -Maddy
