'Ello! My name is Sylladi, and I've finally put another story in the queue! It is called "The Heir Apparent," a name which will play an unusually crucial role in the plot later on. I am trying something new with this piece of writing, and it is definitely the most mature piece I've ever written. The first chapter, which is called "First and Last," should hopefully be up any day now, and if you like it even half as much as I do then I will be very happy!
I just started writing the second installment of "Heir," which will be called "Riddle with a capital R." I hope to have it finished just after chapter one comes out of the queue. I am very excited as to where this story is heading!
As for more about me, I am a first-year college student now, with a major in communications/writing, and I hope to someday work as an editor at a publishing company.
Also, I hate to tell you this, but my previous fanfic, The Sabina Affair, of which I had written many more chapters than ever appeared online, has been lost. I have tried to remember as much as I could, but the ensuing chapters have never again met my satisfaction, and I am sure they will not me yours. Therefore, The Sabina Affair has been permanantly halted. I am sorry to those who I know loved it. :(
Summary: It's Harry, Ron, and Hermione's 6th year at Hogwarts. With a little romance, a little bit of Voldemort, a lot of the Mauraders, and the best DADA teacher since Lupin(and he's in it too). There are a lot of changes and a lot of trouble. Harry discovers his increasing doubt in his talent, Hermione remains overworked and ever loyal, while Ron struggles to find out what he really means in the story.
(This is an AU!Sixth Year Fic)
This was good and original! I love that Sirius is still alive!!! Anyway, keep writing! I need more! Just one thing, watch out for repeated words and phrases, they mess with the flow of your story. :)
Author's Response: Thanks for the advice I will keep it in mind, I need the concrit.
Summary: The line that probably best describes the legacy that the Weasley twins left behind after their Great Escape, during Umbridge’s brief rein at Hogwarts. Their legend lasted years afterwards ... but eventually, the only permanent physical reminder was the roped off corner of one corridor, containing a small part of swamp. The mystery of its origins is merely smiled at reminiscently by teachers, and the students can do nothing but spread rumours of how it came to be. When little Janey Weasley starts life at Hogwarts, the mystery is still unsolved. On a whim, and desperate for recognition, she writes home to her father, asking how it came to be. When Ron replies with the true story, a chain of events begins that might just be the making of the next true Hogwarts mischief legend ...
**One-Shot, Post Hogwarts** Now available as AudioFiction Episode #95!
To be honest, I loved the idea, but not the actual story. Sorry. The letter from Ron is actually what turned me away, it sounded too out of character. The flow of his words, and the words themselves, were too pompous for Ron. It almost sounded like Percy or Hermione. If this was intentional, it wasn't well explained.
Sorry, not my cup of tea. I'm glad other people like it, though. You can never please everyone.
Author's Response: Fair enough, I was never entirely convinced by that part either, to be honest. Thank you for explaining why you didn\'t like it properly and politely ... not everyone would do the same. =)
Summary: Harry and Ginny are happily married with a baby on the way. When they manipulate Ron and Hermione into both meeting them for lunch, the last thing anyone expected was for Harry and Ginny to be kidnapped.
Suddenly Ron and Hermione are left with nothing more than a note and the realization it’s up to them to follow the clues and rescue the couple they both love and adore. If only the clues weren't nonsense. If only they knew who could possibly have taken Harry and Ginny. If only they didn’t hate each other. If only they hadn’t once loved each other.
Life just got a whole lot more complicated for Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.
"Harry was right: there was no such thing as understanding girls, no matter how old a bloke got."
I'd just like to point out a few things:
1. you blow a "gasket" when angry, not a casket...
2. the pictures on Bernard's walls are all artsy shapes, so I doubt that you wanted one to look like "steak." Unless that was just to show that Ron really does think about food all the time.^^
Hope that helps. Overall a pretty good story. I will keep reading.
Author's Response: That does help. Typos will be the death of me! ;) I'm glad you like the story overall!
Well, now I simply must keep reading, only to see who this woman is...
I started reading your story because someone said my fic reminded them of yours. I'm afraid that maybe the same woman is now coming back in both (although not as literally in mine, if that is the case).
And I have one typo that really bothered me:
"bronze" should be "brawn" when Bernard was insulting Ron. Although I must admit this mistake made me giggle. I was just imagining a metal Ron walking around somewhere...^^
Author's Response: Alas, I always have some typo or other! I'll try and fix that; thanks for pointing it out!
Summary: Narcissa Malfoy sits at her dining room table nineteen years after the final battle at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. She is worrying about her son, Draco Malfoy, who has been missing for two weeks when she receives a letter that will change her life forever.
Meanwhile, Hermione Granger sits in her office at the Ministry of Magic, pondering the exact same news, and she awaits the inevitable visit from Narcissa and the troubles she knows must come.
Far away in the Forest of Dean, Harry and Ron are set the task of investigating a mysterious killer. But even more mysterious and shocking than the killer himself is the victim. Can Harry and Ron forget the past in order for justice to be served?
These three tales entwine to form one story of loss, forgiveness, and friendship.
Congrats X2pttrclue32 on such a good story! I will certainly keep reading, as you continue to post more chapters.
However, I would like to point out that some parts of this chapter contain repetitions of the same word, like year and dead, that can become a little annoying. Also, "Magical Law" appears twice in a row in the letter from the ministry of magic.
Anyway, great job, good story!
