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?
Hmm... perhaps this was unintentional, but Sirius Black has a "Secret Diary" too... not saying you copied me. Cleva babe, plz write more =). -Ama
Author's Response: I'm not sure if I'm gonna finish this story because I can't get it to be accepted. Maybe if I feel like rewriting the chapter one day. So keep an eye out. You never know.
OH! Je l'adore cette fic! Oh mon coeur, mon amour Sirius avait un mauvais reve! Omigosh! Great fic! Clever, very clever. Sorry about the French there, I can better express myself in the language of love and adoration, I luv Sirius!
Wow... (stares blankly in awe at the screen... in a stupor) that was wicked! I'm just so... so... wow... that was really cool!!! Nice addition and I wish you would add this to ff.net so I could add it to my C2 archive "Sirius Lovers". It's so so good and I really think it belongs in a list of fics/poems/sonnets devoted to Padfoot/the Marauders. Very clever and very well thought out. Excellent. -Amalynne O'hara
Author's Response: I think I will ;)
Very nice, but dialogue is too advanced for 11yr olds. And no offense, but the start of this fic is rather drab, and drawn out. You have a lovely style, yet you dwell on things a little too much. Didn't get to read all of this, but I'm coming back to it and adding it to favs. bcuz I think it has potential. So nice to see such a gifted writer. Poetic and flowy... *sighs dreamily*, I'm enjoying it. -Amalynne
Author's Response: The dialogue, is too advanced? I see, to, smart? Right! SO right! Thank-you, I got a little carried away with the whole dialouge thing. Rather drab and drawn out you say? Well, I see your point and I'm glad you expressed it. My style, Lovely? PLEASE! My style is anything but lovely. *laughs stylishly* Anyways, thank-you for the compliment amongst the criticism. Potential does it? *looks around* I think so too! *laughs* Gifted writer? Wow, poetic and flowly? Cool, never had that before. Oh, and I'm glad your enjoying it because I'm happt to hear you oppinions and your thoughts, and I LOVE answering these reviews! Thank you all again for reviewing my story! I absolutely love compliments AND critiscism. Thanks again!
Sorry to be critical, but Lily and Sirius weren't much of anything to even be considered a fling, Lily said too much, Sirius seemed too stupid and it lacked that certain sparkle that makes up a childhood romance. Oh, I don't know... it's just that at some points the dialogue is just perfect, at other times you skip light years and make Lily sound like McGonagall. This chap was dry... very sorry. I do like the whole idea, but you could use s'more creativity. Long chaps are good :),plz write more and I'm sorry if I was naggy, I just didn't think this was ur best chap. Luv ya. -Amalynne
Author's Response: *lets out a long,deep sigh*I know, at first, this whole Lily thing was so awesome!Then,I decided against it,and knew it was too late to go back.Well,now we know why Lily hates Sirius...Bye!Ill respond another time.
Interesting, very interesting. This is told in a sort of playwrite form... clever. Although... I do have some complaints. No offense, but did you even read the books? All the info from the bks contradicts this piece. Lily is green eyed, it states clearly in the book... I doubt she would ever in her life feel for Sirius Black, after all she didn't even like james (it just doesn't go, sorry), and the dialogue is so... I'm sorry again, sugary sweet. I'd like to see some emotion, some saucy words, some daring snippets of speech. I'm seeing the drab trend continue. ooh! but isn't it fun writing "author's responses", I just luv it. Tee hee hee. Any way, I'm sticking around bcuz I'm ever so intrigued by the narrator. If u have time, check out my fic, The Ever Secret Diary of Sirius Black. And yes silly, you do write lovely.
Author's Response: Clever is it now? Well, you seem to ever so enjoy it! Do I sense a fan? Ha ha. Yes, after getting many complaints about Sirius's hair and Lily's eyes and everything else with the looks, I have taken it upon myself to re-read EVERY Harry Potter book I own. I am just recently finishing the Philosphers Stone, (I live in America, but oh how I do love the UK!)So, yes, about three times it has mentioned Harry having his mother's eyes, not James. About the feeling for Sirius, this is just supposed to be a secret of the past. Something no one would ever think of. Obviously, YOU and some others do not think that Lily would EVER feel for Sirius. I however, think it makes a great Storyline. Saucy words you say? Well, define that my dear friend. Saucy, I do belive that's a new spice for me. Drab, eh? Well, I have YET to write James and the rest of the marauders, AND the Quidditch game! *smiles excitedly* Just wait my dear girl! Just wait and see, the magic that is held beneath the lines! And, yes, it is dreadfully fun typing these author responses! The narrator eh? Well, I have yet to actually think of a twist for him. He has yet to come and POP into my mind. Anyway, we will have to wait and see about this mysterious man...I read your story about James and the time-turner. BRAVO! I enjoyed it so much! Very sweet twist to it, I thought it was brilliant, and, well, it would have gone perfectly with the background to the series. I DO write lovely don't I? *bats eyes* Why thank-you ever so much! Anyways, I love hearing what EVERYONE thinks, whether it is bad OR good, it all matters and it makes me feel good. OH! And you have YET, to hear the break-up...Just keeping you all intrigued. I have some interesting ideas for some wicked plots!
Oh! Alright, I had to go back and reread this. Now I see. The idea is much used on fanfic, but if you write it right, I'm sure it'll be smashing! U live in the US too? Moi aussi (me too). I'm native american so I was here before you ever were hahaha (evil laugh), kiddin'. SO nice of you to review my fic. In the words of Tigger ttfn (ta ta for now). -Amalynne
Author's Response: What idea is that my dear Amalynne? BTW, I love your name. Smashing? Well, just wait. I hope it will. Yes, I live in the US, but I am EVER SO facinated with the UK. I refer to my mom as mum, the books to what they are reffered to over in England, and so on and so fourth. ANYWAYS! I hope you ALL continue to enjoy my story! -Author
haha! Thanx for "scaucing" it up a bit. This was all very sweet and innocent, yes slightly drawn out and a tad cliche, but very well written just the same. This probably wasn't intentionally funny, but this sentence made me lol, "certain black haired kid whom we know as Sirius Black" hee hee, I LOVE SIRIUS! I hate to point out another error, but Sirius' brother is younger and he wouldn't have been sorted into Slytherin yet if Sirius is a 1st yr. OY! Sirius' parents are old bitter evil mean hags, good job on the letter... had me foaming at the mouth in a rage at them. My sweet adoring Siri... he and I have had a thing going since the POA, it's been our secret little love affair... he's not really dead (just smile and nod... I know, I make little sense). Keep it up! -Ama
Author's Response: Thank-you again, and I am going to keep this response short. I also, LOVE Sirius, I wish I was having a love affair with him! LOL! Anyways, yes, I've twisted it, drawn it out, and gotten many things wrong, but hey, I'm not perfect! Anyways, yes I know he is not dead. He is just hiding behind the curtains, can't you hear the voices? And when I sit in the Shreiking Shack, in the depths of winter, my breath is not the only one in the room.....
*sigh*, hi, it's me again. Sorry, but I just had to clarify that the "idea" I mentioned in my previous review was concerning the Lily/Sirius luv affair. Saucy(my definition of saucy anyway), means add some sarcasm, some every day speech, some witty retorts, and good old British slang. I spent 2 summer abroad and it's a lovely country, Britain, but it's very crowded... my mum's Scottish. Anyhoo, simply clarifying. luv ya. -Amalynne
P.S. And I'm so so flattered that you like my name... everyone tells me it's weird, heck.
Author's Response: British Slang? Well dear, I HAVEN'T MADE IT TO BRITAIN YET! Lol! ANyways, yea, I haven't been to Britain yet. I have just read tons about it online deary. Witty you say? Well, Lily doesn't get witty and sarcastic until later on, or at least I think so...Anyways, thank-you for clairifying what 'saucy' meant. I really like your name! -Author
I'm a bit winded from all this passion... still good though.
Author's Response: If ya think that's passion you don't knwo what's gonna hit ya in the next few chapters....LOL! It's gonna go CRAZY!!!!!!!!! MWAHAHA!!! Thankies! xxx
My parents will be back any minute and I'm banned from all computer usage, but you have me hooked... I CANT STOP READING IT's TOO TOO GOOD! Kodos!
Author's Response: LOL! Thank you! I do hope you don't get in trouble though! -huggles- xxx
More than excellent, fantastic! I LUV YOU! Sirius is hot, Sirius is hot... just letting u know he's mine =). -Amalynne
Author's Response: Thank you LOADS!!!! Hehehehe, -snatches him- MINEMINEMINEMINEMINE!!! Mwahahahaha!!!! -huggles- xxx
Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes! I think you are greatly talented and deserve a big whapping hug *hugs author!* . This fic is fab, this fic is fab... Sirius is a SEXY beast... forgive me, like who could resist?
Author's Response: Thank you sooooooooooo much!!!! -Hugs back- I Know...-dribbles- MY sexy beast though...Lana: OIT! me: Don't "OIT!" me! You just slept with his brother!! Lana: -Looks innocent-
This fic is really good, but Lana is too much of a slut for my taste, Sirius is starting to make me sick... Lily would never in her life get drunk, and James is the only one who really seems to stay in character. I'd prefer if you gave Sirius at least a little bit of a conscience somewhere along the way, after all, he has to pick one up before he reaches Azkaban doesn't he? Well, like what you have going here... I just hate all the fooling around and the slutiness, bugs the heck out of me. I'm such a sucker for Siri though *sigh*. -Ama
Author's Response: Slut...Hehehehe...I like to consider her more of an "Over-Enthusiastic Flirt" HEHEHE!!! Why's Sirius making ya sick? He is a bit despie...Shall make him evil...MWAHAHA! I got drunk once...And I'm 13 and a goody two shoes! MWAHAHA! I think she was trying to drown her sorrows, as she's feeling very confused over her feelings for James and Sirius. That's cos I don't write about him much -grins- Hehehee! I love meh Jamesie! It's easier to write for him as we all have a greater understanding of Harry...And sicne Harry's so much like his father...Well that's just one of my theories -grins- He also is a LOT like one of my best boy mates! So he's basically easy... That's very interesting that you've said that, do you mind going into more detail? Sirius needs a conscience for what exactly? I think that Sirius is just going through some tough times (Best excuse ever) and is rather confused over the feelings he's having...Maybe he grew up in Azkaban, developing a conscience there instead of before. This story is based on many events in my life...Whoch is full of fooling around and slutiness...I'm just trying to show what life is like to a teenager. Hehehehe, I'll try and tone it down a bit for ya hun. Thanx for your review! It made me think about the direction my story's going in! xx
Grrr, gimme more! Lets hurry up and get to the seventh floor and have some truth or dare, I'm just dieing for it!! Don't mean to rush really, ahem. Lots going on in this fic, but I suggest you stick to something simple like two stories at a time, you've got the Sirius and Leora thing and the james thing and the truth of dare thing and maybe I'm mentally handicapped, but that's alot to swallow. Good chap though. -Ama
Author's Response: Thank you for the advice. Right now I can't really cut too much out though, as that would just look extrememly strange! I'll take your advcie for the future thoguh, and see what I can do to make it simpler...As a writer, writing about the same thing constantly, I don't think there's enough! LOL! Tahnkies again! -Huggles- xxx
Woohoo, a hot Regulus... yes, I always envisioned him as a kind of light and pretty version of Sirius, but whinnier. I thought this was your best chap yet, oddly, maybe bcuz I'm luving the tension. Keep it up and UPDATE ASAP! YOU MUST UPDATE... or... well I just might die. -amalynne
Author's Response: heheheh! Yesh...I have to thank mel for that, she gave me the mini Sirius idea! LOL!!! Thank you soooooooo much! As I said before, I though it was rather bad...LOL!! So thank you again! -huggles- xxx DON'T YOU DARE DIE!!!! There are thinsg to come!!! xxx
lalalal, hee hee hee, happy me, nice chap, I'm all aglow *giggles*, HURRY UP AND UPDATE WOMAN! Most sincerely, Amalynne
Author's Response: LOL! Hehehehe! I'm trying...It's REALLY hard to write this one! I don't know what to do...I had it all planned, then thoguht it wasn't really the most realistic option after much thought...The shame...Well, I think I must run off and write! Thank you for all your amazing reviews hun! -huggles- xxx
Luv how this is turning out. Tres bien, tres bien, j'adore cette fic, c'est parfait, trop parfait! Les XOXOXO a mon Padfoot. =).
Oh MY GOSH! I absolutely LOVED chapter 23 and 24! They were so surprising and refreshing to read. Such an awesome, cool idea!! Ooh I luv your ficcy! Aww, Siri and Lana 4ever, ick stupid Angelina ruins everything!! Character interviews? Sounds kewl! Can't wait!! By the way, I just noticed a few typos on your fic, fix those or have a beta reader clean things up for you and I'm sure mugglenet will let your fics on. I'm up for beta reading if you're interested *grins sheepishly*. Keep it up. ~Alwayz, Ama
Gee, that totally sux about the internet thing... I can sympathize, though not to such extremes. Anyhoo, GREAT chappy! So beautiful! WRITE WRITE! You must write more! -Ama
