Hi, I live in Southern California, I'm 14 yrs. old, and I'm in 10th grade. I'm in color guard at my high school(just got chosen to be co-captain for my sophomore year), but I used to be in gymnastics and wish I still could be. I love reading, I'm a bookworm and always have been, always will be. I love fantasy, and my favorite series is Harry Potter, of course! I love reading fan fics- especially romance, my favorite ships being R/Hr, H/G, and J/L. I also like reading Hr/D and D/G, but I don't think they're very plausible.
I'm currently in the process of writing my own fic, about the child of Ginny and Harry (don't worry, they're married; it's just gross otherwise), but i'm going to wait until I have at least two chapters completed before i start posting them.
Seventh grader Alexandra Quick returns to Charmbridge Academy. This year she faces bullies from another wizarding school, a secret Dark Arts club, and the machinations of her father, but her greatest trial yet awaits her in the dangerous Lands Below.
This is the second book in the Alexandra Quick series.
Yeah, but I really hope Alex would never be so stupid and cruel as to cast an Unforgivable. I still can't believe Max did that. Well, I guess I can see the potential in his personality, but... I was really starting to like him, and then he has to go and do something like that. I think that trait is one they probably inherited from their father- the deep rage that would spur someone to do something drastic.
oh, wow. she finally meets her father. is she going to tell him off for never trying to contact her before last year? is she going to get any answers from him? I can't wait to read more!
wow, i was kinda far off. but i guess that makes sense, now that i look back on it. he doesn't hate her- he's trying to protect her. but even so, she makes him so mad he wants to hit her sometimes. they're not full-blood siblings, though, are they? so who's Maximilian's mother?
I really enjoyed this chapter- especially all the interaction between Max and Alexandra. They really do act like brother and sister. I'm glad Alexandra got the chance to learn more about her family.
Wow, that's pretty harsh. Making them join the JROC- taking away their electives, too. I can understand that she'd be angry at their prejudices- I would be, too- but it seems like a punishment that rather exceeds the crime. So now they have to be in this military-like organization. Somehow I don't think Alexandra is going to be able to keep her mouth shut the entire semester.
Yay! you updated! So why is Maximilian King going to such lengths to prevent Alexandra from joining the MMS? Does he think she's one of those who would learn how to use the Dark Arts and become dangerous through them?
I'm glad Alexandra is having second thoughts about the MMS. It shows she has a good heart. I'm a little disappointed that she decided to join Anna's feud with Tomo, though- I know she's just trying to stick up for her friend, but I think she's going about it the wrong way. So this Halloween initiation sounds pretty interesting- is that going to be in the next chapter? Well, whether it is or not, I can't wait to read more!
haha, I'm glad she's continuing the JROC. i think it will be good for her- especially now that it's actually by her choice. this was a really interesting chapter; it really gives us things to think about. what happens if bonnie turns out to be a witch? wait, how old is she anyway? well, it would be interesting, at any rate. i wonder if Alex is going to wear the locket her father got her? anyway, can't wait to read more!
Hahaha! Poor Alexandra. Well, at least it's not even partially her fault this time- she was just trying to break up the fight. I don't get why Tomo would provoke Anna in the first place- she's by herself, while Anna has other kids to back her up.
Yay! They're back at Charmbridge! Sounds like Alexandra is in for an interesting year.
Update please! It's been a week!
Yay! I'm happy they finally did something to get rid of their stupid prejudices. And I'd bet the MMS meeting is in the same room as the portal to the Lands Below. But what exactly are they planning to do with Honey?
I think Maximilian might have a bit of a crush on Alexandra. Although why he keeps hurting her, I can't figure out. I couldn't hurt my own crush, that's for sure.
Anyway, great chapter. I can't wait to find out what happens next!
Hm. Interesting meeting with Abraham Thorn. I'm glad we finally got to see him. I think you portrayed Alex's feelings very well in this chapter- both her anger and her unwillingness to be viewed as a child. Can't wait to read more!
Wow. I can't believe Tomo's that frightened of Alexandra. Why? Does she know about her heritage? Even so, why should she be more frightened of Alexandra than of Anna, or of the other students who put the Medusa Curse on her? Unless she thinks it was Alexandra who did that?
So who was it who told Darla about the Killing Curse? Whoever it was, they can't have been stupid enough to think she'd actually be able to make it work, did they? Maybe they just wanted to scare Alexandra. Was it Maximilian, still trying to scare her away from the MMS? At any rate, life at Charmbridge is heating up! I can't wait to read more!
Bad Charlie! Haha. It'll probably turn out to be something either really useful or really dangerous- or both.
Another great chapter! So Alex and David finally decided to "break up." It looks like their ruse had some unexpected consequences- they made the wrong roommate jealous! That's rather ironic. Well, I wonder how they'll deal with this? I hope Alex can get Darla out of the MMS soon. She's too far into already. Alex is right- it's definitely not good for her.
awww. I'm glad Alexandra's getting the chance to get to know her siblings better. She's going to be really sore tomorrow from all that riding- using muscles she hasn't used all that much before. Although, I suppose, having ridden a broomstick might help a little. I bet they do end up going to the Cotillion- either with or without Mrs. King's permission! Can't wait to read more!
so she gives the obol to a house elf, who takes her to the Lands Below? she's not going to like forcing her friends to do that- i bet she'll choose a different elf, but it's still not going to be a light decision for her. will she go? of course- she's Alexandra. should she go? of course not! but that's never stopped her before. i don't think she'll rush in this time- but what will force her hand? my bet is that Darla will be mixed into it somewhere. can't wait to read more!
Hmmm, Alex and Max are developing their relationship now, but Alex is kind of neglecting Anna a bit, isn't she? And I wonder what Darla thinks of Max and Alex's new friendship?
Awesome! I like all the description. Julia and Mrs. King seem really nice. I bet Alexandra's going to have a wonderful time. Did she forget to ask the elf porter, or did she feel it would be rude? (Although why that would stop her...) I can't wait to find out more about Croatoa! and to see the Granians! And what's this about a Cotillion?
