16yrs of age, living in the US (ha like I'd tell you where, hee hee). Luvs writing, writing is her life (oh and she's grl by the way, no surprise there). Sirius Black is her all time fav character out of all the bks, if he were a real person she'd kiss him, and did I forget to mention she likes to write in the 3rd person. I'm not writing much bcuz I don't think my bio is all that important. My fic is what u should be reading although I will add that I do enjoy playing piano and that Switchfoot is my fov band. Also I'm a big time Jesus Freak (though some may be as bold to venture to say that I am a hypocrite, not true. HP is a story, ficiton people, fiction!). So c'est moi, Amalynne in a nutshell. Oh et je parle francais aussi. Aurevoir mes amours. Sincerelement -Amalynne O'Hara
Oh and if any of you really like my fics and can't wait for an update (ha! I have yet to see that happen, anyhoo) you can check out additional chapters at Fanfiction.net under the name Amalynne O'hara. This site just takes so dang long to approve fics, so I've resorted to a more lenient site.
Here's the lovely banner that was removed from THE EVER SECRET DIARY OF SIRIUS BLACK.... drn mods, anyway... I love it. It was done by Tinka4Ever, brilliant...
And my own personal work in progress... *sigh* someday...
ALSO, visit http://www.toujourspur.com/ for some of the best Sirius fics out there ;).
Which Harry Potter Marauder Are You?
Oh tres bien! Your style is superb! I luv these diaries people write, I know yours will be just as good, if not better judging by how excellent this was. Not to sound like I'm raving about it or anything, this was just quite catching. Do continue!
It seems to start a little slow, but it's good all the same. Clever. I luv how everyone makes the Maraduers so witty, it's so what Rowling would have wanted. keep it up, but remember, you don't have to describe everything, a slight description here or there doesn't tire out the reader so much. Besides that, this really has potential. Much luv. -Amalynne O'Hara
Summary: Sirius Black is dead, but a memory of him still remains. Rummaging through Padfoot's old possessions, Remus finds a bit of the past in a diary. Sort of a Tom Riddle's diary experience with a 16yr old Sirius Black.
Sorry, couldn't stand the uneven number on my review listings. I'm weird like that. Ha! I could go in and give myself 20 reviews if I liked, that's the only problem with this site, there are no constraints. *sigh*
Again I'm reviewing my own fic bcuz I don't like the odd number on the screen... Sirius and I have a thing with numerology... not really. Hope to update soon... it takes so dang long for chapters to be approved on this site *grrr*. Ok, give me reviews, lots of reivews... luv ya'll. -Amalynne
Summary: Halloween, 1981. Tragedy strikes. Sirius begins a lifetime of sorrow. One shot.
ha ha! since I finally found the review button tres excellent! and I hope you get more reviews. Luv ya.
Author's Response: Thanks amalynne! Glad you liked it.
Summary: Giving high school essays a Marauder twist, this fiction is centered around the idea that some seniors in high school are require to write a letter to incoming freshman before they graduate. At Hogwarts, Seventh Years are given an assignment to write such a letter for the new First Years. Sirius decides to actually take an assignment, well seriously...sort of. He decides to look back on his entire Hogwarts years and write down his list of things not to do at Hogwarts.
BRILLIANT! I luv getting into Sirius' mind and this really is superb! I wrote a fanfic on ff.net and it's posted on mugglenet now as well, The Ever Secret Diary of Sirius Black. check it out if you have the time, you're going in my favs. Good work on this and I can't wait to read the rest! Je l'adore mon amour!-Ama
Author's Response: Ooh, Sirius's diary? Don't guys call them journals so their mates don't kick the crap out of them? Lol. Thanks for the review and have you seen Empire Records? "Say no more, mon amour!"
"Sirius Black does not fall in love! Sirius Black has never loved anything! Sirius Black is a player and he's proud of it!"
Will I ever get over that PERFECT statement? no, it was too brilliant! Yes, that sounds like Sirius all right, glad you have similar views on the way he should be!!! Dialogue is great, witty and super de dooper... ugh, a bit o' Barney there for ye. Reading next chap, you brilliant soul you.
Author's Response: Hmm, that sounds awfully familiar... Oh right, I wrote it! Perfect? I doubt that, but thank you anyway. Brilliant soul? *blushes* You're too kind. This will only inflate Sirius's head more, considering I'm writing about HIM!
hahahahahahahahaha (whew) hahahahahahahah... (out... of... breath... laughing... help... going to.... die of....) hahahaha... Well, now that I can breathe again, this simple little phrase was the cause to my giggles:
"Mr. Black, for the last time, there are no evil clowns living under your bed! Now stop waking me up!"
Oh that was great! Humor me, will and write a novel, put Rowling out of business, this is just dazzlingly funny and like I've said before, clever, but I thought I'd bug u with it one more time.
James singing "Dancing Queen" was great, and Sirius and the Madame Pompfrey thing, I actually read a fic on ff.net that had to do with that, but ya. Laterz
Author's Response: You with the flattery, stop! I can't take any more! Haha, I'm glad you liked it, yet again. Remember that it's because of J.K. Rowling that we have such characters as Sirius Black. Thanks for another review.
I'll picking plucking up ur quotes here and there, if you don't mind, I find them rather... rib cracking, if you wish me to put it delicately, "Fine you're Mary Poppins then," he teased. "Practically perfect in every way." I could kiss you it's just so great. LOVE YOUR FIC, so cliche, I know, but truly I do. -Amalynne
Author's Response: You with the flattery! Stop! You're making me blush! ...Did you say kick or kiss? Cuz I'm not that kind of girl... And please don't crack a rib or injure anything else because I can't afford compensation! Haha.
Wait, wait, wait! Sirius' middle name is LEE?! My God, I didn't know that, and he and I have been living together, oh! he never tells me these things... I was just skimming thru ur profile and I saw that u inserted that as his middle name and now I'm all giddy and fluttery mad at him for not saying. Oh, he'll pay, that Sirius Black.
Author's Response: Haha, he only tells ME such things. JKR has never said his middle name, but there's no reason it can't be Lee. Plus, if Sirius's first name is ironic seeing that he's definitely not a very "serious" person, why shouldn't his middle name be ironic, too? Sirius Lee Black = Seriously Black. And Sirius isn't seriously a Black in that he doesn't share the same prejudiced beliefs as the rest of the Black family. See my logic? I've really given this some thought, lol.
Paddycake, paddycake, baker's man, give me an update as fast as you can!
haha! guess the button does work afterall, well you know what I think of it babe. UPDATE ASAP!
Author's Response: Already did.
Pat, this is really getting to me. You may be busy and all, but really if you plan to torture me, continue to ignore this fic. UPDATE! by golly. So no pressure *wink wink*. Plz plz plz update :). -Ama
ha ha! Sirius not the tough guy eh? Well great chap and I luv this insight into how the Marauder's went about formulating the whole animagus thing, you make them sound so genius. Great dialogue, it's better coming from a guy I guess. Rowling would be proud. Update soon or I'll cry, really I will. Pity me and my tears. UPDATE! -Ama
Summary: Alice Longbottom is alone at home with only little Neville to keep her company. When Neville wakes up in the middle of the night, Alice does what all good mothers do; she sings him a lullaby.
haha! I don't blame you for reviewing your own fic, I would have done the same early on. Be patient m'dear, this story is original and good and is definitely review worthy. However, it seems to drag on in some ways. If this was a one shot, I'd say good (9 or 10) but if you plan to make this a multi chapter fic, then I really don't know what you'd use for material, in that sense this would be a 6 or 7, so to be diplomatic, i give you an 8. Good effort, nicely thought out, and if there's more to come, I'll certainly check it out. Hope I helped some, and I'm proud to be ur 1st real reviewer, hee hee. -Amalynne
Summary: Hermione describes her Ron troubles in this series of hilarious journal entries, notes passed in class, and lists. And...Mrs Norris is a duck?
NOTE: This was written quite some time ago, in my younger years. It was my first story...which should explain a lot.
You know, AP classes suck. I just dropped physics *sigh*, thanx for rubbing it in, now I feel really great. Anyhoo, great chap. Brilliant! Plz keep it up and don't spend too much time writing fics. Take my words of wisdom: grades droop and reviews increase, but mom and pop aren't proud of the report card you bring home. Try to balance the two. That is a trick I have yet to learn. Maybe you've got it together, heck. Good luck with things and pass those AP classes drn it! -Amalynne
Author's Response: Don't worry about my classes; I have that magical ability to do a bazillion things at once. My report card was pretty darn good, if i do say so myself. Thanks for reading! A new chapter should show up soon!
Ooh, ooh! Who gets to be the 1st reviewer, oh ya! That's me, hee hee! yes! great chap. You make me so frustrated at Ron, that's good. It means ur a tres bien writer. Write away m'dear, I'll be waiting for the next update. -Amalynne
Author's Response: Haha, I love being the first reviewer too! YAY DANCING! (sorry, that was uncalled for) Check for updates, the holidays are coming up so I'll have more free time!
REASONS WHY I LIKE THIS:
1. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant dipiction of Hermione
2. The dialogue "c'est parfait" aka: you've got it down good babe.
3. You didn't butcher the whole Hermione aura, unlike some who like to make her some maniac pyshco freak that really has a hidden love life with Draco and is off drinking in her spare time. *sigh*. People are dumb.
4. I would like this story even more if you'd update, hee hee.
*5:20pm somewhere in Antartica* Amalynne yearns for an update.
Author's Response: I'm responding to this on 12-10, though I first read it almost a month ago...*sigh* your first review. I gave such normal responses back then...and now, TIME TO FEED THE LLAMAS! WOOOO! (somewhere in Greenland, Hermione's Revenge feeds a large herd of disgruntled llamas)
WHAT?! THIS IS THE END?! THE END!? Oh! if I knew who you were I'd come after you with... hmm. well I'd come after you and beg for justice! That cannot be the end! If I gave up on Sirius' diary as quickly as you gave up on this, I'd have death threats in my inbox (you will to I warn you!). HEEE-larious, genius, brilliant and so completely hermione! Why did you stop. I especially loved this random line: “Just … go in there.” See, it's things like that I love and I'm going to bug you to enternity if you don't continue! Arg! My heart, I'm dieing, see what you've done! Oh woe! oh woe! Lovely, amazing fic. And I will check out your other hmm... creations in the future. Check me out if you have the time. Luv ya. (and continue with this, not a satisfying ending. Hermione gets a kiss and then the glass breaks and all the lemonade spills to the floor... that aint an ending babe). ttfn -Amalynne
Author's Response: Woah...okok, I submitted an "expermiental" fan fic, but after this little...majig, I think I'll go back and keep going w/ Hermione's journal (in a second story, that is) I'm slightly afraid of you, and I apologize for my short attention span...AWAY! (jumps off chair, trips, falls, then goes back on computer and begins writing second diary story)
Author's Response: Ok, I just submitted a sequel. Happy?
Like many have done, I am reviewing my own fic, so some wondrous soul will come along and reivew. This was a stupid fic to begin with, I don't blame anyone for not reviewing, hee hee.
