Bio:
Hi, i'm Hannah, i'm 18 and i live in England. I am also working on a couple of stories but i get distracted too easily and i refuse to put them online without having a couple of chapters done first - i keep moving on to new stories (i'm very fickle)

I really love reading HP fanfic (obviously)

Hates: Americanisation of Harry Potter in fanfic - i am aware that american writers don't know everything about english life but, for the record, we do not say 'tardy' it's 'late', if using muggle money it is pounds (or quid if you need another word for it) and we do not have notes or 'bills' for small sums of money so saying they handed over a few notes actually equals quite a lote of money and we do not have snickerdoodles (you'd be suprised how much this comes up)

i am aware that i sound like i hate americans - i don't - it's just that i've recently read a lot of HP fanfic which is very, very americanised and it annoys me because it detracts so much from the world JK Rowling has created - i would imagine that english people notice this more than americans.

My favourite characters are Sirius, Fred and George and i always maintained that Snape was good (and i'm not just saying that), i also respect Ginny a great deal for putting up with so many older brothers - i can hardly cope with two.

For some time i secretly wished that Harry really would run away and stop just thinking about it - he sometimes moaned too much for me and i just wanted to yell 'stop moping and do something about it already!' - can you tell i'm really unsympathetic and impatient?

i also cried like a baby when Sirius and Dobby died and was in too much shock when Lupin and Fred died to do anything

i don't understand people who don't like Harry Potter (especially those who don't even bother reading them)

And i really don't like people who only watch the films and think that they are truly like the books.

and incase you havn't noticed already, i love to rant - it just flows out of me naturally

Summary: James Potter: Marauder. Lily Evans: Prefect. They're both seventh years at Hogwarts. They're also about to have a pretty interesting year--complete with a few detentions, pranks, confusion, and laughter--in which they get through school, make some trouble and maybe, just maybe, sort out their feelings for each other.

Thanks to all you who have made it possible for this story to be in the Top Tens. It was a very happy moment when I first saw my story on the list, and I love being able to go back and see it there now. Still. Yay!

Throughout the latter half of 2010, and the first half of 2011, I re-edited this story. The changes were mostly to fix stray (and annoying) grammar and spelling errors, but also to rework some plot points in an effort to stay truer to canon. I also updated the style; having written this story so long ago, my writing has definitely developed (and I would say gotten better), so I edited to reflect that. (I apologize for the errors that were in the story before all this editing. I found them immensely distressing when I reread my chapters. Heartbreaking, really.)


Big “thank yous” go to the three people who helped edit/nitpick the first edition of this novel: violagirl, fairiesandcream, and Omagus.
And yes, this story is up on Fanficition.net under the penname: Io.Sono.Emilia.
Of course, as a disclaimer, I’m not JK Rowling. The Potterverse does not belong to me, but I am in it and love it.

Not to be rude but how you descirbed Stacy doesn't make me think she's not British. A lot of British poeple have died hair and peircings.

Author's Response: But.. in the 70's?... Gotta keep that in mind. I thought that to- but then I remembered that it's not modern times. And remember that these aren't "Muggles", these are wizards....

Ok, i'm still loving your story (just read your new chapter) but the 60's and 70's were the era where peircing and hairdying was all coming through - the brotish were very punk and rock - i'm sorry if i seem rude i just always have to fight a debate once i start. and yes they are wizards so the appearance would probably made them think she was a muggle born - not necessarily american

Author's Response: Fair enough, but the accent is still a give away... And to admit- I didn't research very much. ;-S

 

Summary: Chapter Thirty-Eight in Queue!

They say someday your life will flash before your eyes...

The Marauders. The name alone strikes fear into the hearts of teachers and makes girls swoon. Watch as Sirius, who has always kept his emotions locked up in a box, finally finds the girl that has its key; as James masterminds everything, except how to win over the girl of his dreams; as Remus finds love, but learns it's just as hard to keep it going, and as Peter tries to prove he's just as good as the other four, no matter what he has to do. They're unstoppable, and it's safe to say that once they're gone, Hogwarts will never be the same again.

...let's make ours worth watching.

I really love this story it's so funny! but if agie really gave the muggle kid a couple of notes in british money that kid would be able to but about ten ice creams! lol!

 

Summary: "Some mistakes are too much fun to make just once."

After Lily Evans, Head Girl of Hogwarts, starts a food-fight with James Potter, Head Boy of Hogwarts, they are both given detention for the rest of the year, and are assigned a 'detention journal', which the staff say will help to settle their 'overwhelming and disturbing differences'. We have come across Lily's journal; her take on why the whole affair ever started, her intriguing relationship with one ‘supreme git of the galaxy’, the extents to which she will go for revenge and where it will lead her...


"And if for some unknown reason you come across this, Potter, and the paragraph above does not manage to penetrate your unusually thick head and convince you of my stupendous dislike of you, I hope the following sentence helps: I HATE YOU!"

that was so perfect! i'm so happy that you didn't make George angry like so many do. i felt that he was as he should be, how Fred would have wanted it to. (By the way, i don't think your work is americanised - you capture Rowlings mood in a way i havn't seen in other's fanfic)

Author's Response: Oh, thank you very much! I'm thrilled that you think that George is how he should be. And I am also glad that you believe my work captures Ms Rowling's mood. How neat. My British relatives would be proud! Thanks for reading and reviewing! cj

Aha! i knew i'd find a story of yours in here somewhere. (btw its Hannah).
That was really good! I love that it wasn't all warm and fluffy in a sickening way.
i feel the same about tea and coffee - give me a squash any day.
Are you holding out on any more stories??

Author's Response: i hate you. i knew you were fishing when you asked my name. and no, no other ones. grrrrr.

Awww! that was lovely, a beautiful ending. i know you decided on this before DH which made reading Fred being there really sad, knowing what really happened.

Author's Response: Thanks very much! And I know exactly what you mean about Fred's presence in this. I feel the same way about reading my other fic 'Waiting'. Every time I read it and he bounds down the stairs... {sigh} By the way, I just read your bio - I hope my stories aren't too 'Americanised' for you (or would that be Canadianised, as I'm Canadian?). And I think McGonagall might say tardy, but definitely not Ron or Harry! :) Thanks for reading and reviewing. cj
