Hear ye! Hear ye!
This is your conscience talking. Also your sense of humour, your sense of pride, and your intuition, and we all say you should read The Harry Potter Literary Storm!
Me? Have anything to do with your conscience, sense of humour, sense of pride and intuition telling you to read the humour story Iím proudest of? I donít know what youíre talking about. But, you know, they are pretty important aspects of you, so for the sake of them, Iíd say why not try it? After all, if your conscience, sense of humour, sense of pride and intuition abandon you in protest of you not reading Happyís story, itíll be far worse than (almost) anything that could happen as a result of you reading it. Right?
Anyway, my nameís Georgia, Iíve recently fallen in love with the Prewett family, I have a long term humour story which you may have noticed Iím attempting to promoteĖ
I mean, which your conscience, sense of humour, sense of pride and intuition think you should read, of course-
And I like to hide behind supposedly witty remarks and a bent sense of logic.
To avoid digging myself into a deeper hole, Iíd like to dive in and tell you about my stories.
Prewett'd: Wedding Tears, Funeral Tears
This is my entry to the third run of the Gauntlet. It's from Gideon's perspective (thus the 'Prewett'd' bit), and is the darkest piece of writing I think I've ever put together. I'm really, really proud of this story, and really hope people read it - although it was for the Gauntlet, this is now a part of the lifetime of (my version of) the Prewetts.
The Harry Potter Literary Storm
Itís an ongoing humour fiction starring an OC called Happy OíBrien, who, in this alternate universe, is responsible for the creation of Harry Potter. He and his assistant Jackie van de Geissen and crack team of anonymous authors have put together the Harry Potter books in a very different way to what youíre used to.
The rumours are true, the first drafts are too, and this story had been nominated thrice for best humour fiction.
THATíS RIGHT, NOMINATED THRICE FOR BEST HUMOUR FICTION; can you believe it? *Will never get over the flattery*
and the lovely Schmergo put in nomination for best OC too, with Happy.
*Pats Happy on the head*

Prewettíd : Gucky and the Fork Tree
Itís a one shot of pretty good length, about Gideon, Fabian and Molly as children, submitted for the One Shot Challenge: Muggle Artifacts. Itís the first story Iíve written about the Prewetts, and certainly not the last.
Ö And he Turned Around Snobbily and Walked Away
Another one-shot, inspired by the quote from Prisoner of Azkaban, when Snape accuses James of strutting. Good for a grin or two, or so Iíve been told.
Ginny's Midnight Drama
One-shot; basically a gag in story form. It was my first submitted story, and will always be special. Good, special ficlet. *Pats*
Definitely more serious, and certainly not a humour story. But it came third in the One-Shot Challenge: Borgin and Burke's. Just thought you should know.
NOTE: INCLUDES CHARACTERISATION OF YOUNG VOLDEMORT
Well, itís a big thing for me. I find Tom Riddle difficult to write, at any age.
~Thank you to joanna!
The Acromantula and its Ability to Consume the Most Repulsive Beasts on This Earth
This is a fun story about Draco Malfoy being cocky ^^
Nothing for Chrismas
Chaptered, and complete. It's light and fluffy and about the Weasleys. I like it more now, because it mentions Gideon and Fabian Prewett, and even Morticia, an OC of mine.
Oh, and that was nominated (by the fantastically wonderful HermyRox12) for the Quicksilver Quills best General Fiction award.
T'was but a Puddle
It's a poem, and I think it's fun. ^^
And this was nominated for Best Poem. Thank you, HermyRox12!
The last part of chapter seven of The Harry Potter Literary Storm. The very last. Eep!
A ballad about a gnome called Gary the Green
And most likely, plenty more Prewetty stuff.
Somehow, I doubt anyone will read this. Ever. But if you did, well done, congratulations, thank you, and Iím sure youíll enjoy my stories a lot more. So please, scroll down a bit and read about them all over again. Maybe even read the things themselves! *Noting pointlessness of having just written all of this*
Anyway, a nice day to all, and to all a nice day!
Hrrmph. I don't know why this story has so few stars right now. I mean, nothing's perfect, but I really, really like it. Well done xD I'm going to read the other one now...
Wow. This is a really awesome story. Personally, I like your portrayal of Remus very much. I really love his character as it is. Hoorah for Lupin! Hem hem. Anyway... he seems much more realistic than is often shown. I don't know about the position of Peter though... I mean, he would have had to have been trusted and respected as a friend in some reguards... But it is still a version of him that works very well. The Lily/James situation is also really well done. I mean, just how they are both realistic characters that can, in some regards, be related with, yet they are not perfect or simple. You have made a truly amazing story. All the memories are linked so well with each other, yet still remain believable. Congrats!
Wow. *Loves this story*
I didn't think I would ever like a story in which the Marauders and friends thereof made movie references, but I think you just got away with it. 'Cos the characterisation is really well done, if different to my interpretation. Well done - it's almost a shame this story's finished. ^^
Hey hey! I really love your stories! They are so funny! Your sense of humour really speaks to me... and it is funny! I especially like the bit when Molly says Ron can call her Professor Mum! Tee hee hee! Classic! *Wipes tear* Anyway, well done!
Youch! Scorcher. Makes plenty of sense thought. Shame there was no room for almost non-existant Pettigrews
This story is absolutely hilarious - it's like it's making light of just about everything serious in Harry Potter, and by doing so becomes a really funny piece of writing.
I think the tone used throughout is one of the aspects that makes this story so funny; when Dumbledore and just about everyone else is explaining the 'real' situation to Harry, they do so in a way that suggests that it's all really obvious, which I suppose is one of the reasons that it drives Harry so mad. The descriptions, also, have this same 'attitude' about them - like with Neville strangling Bellatrix and the unidentified 'Half-Blood Prince' being there. No explanation is needed, because - well, it's the final battle. Of course Neville is strangling Bellatrix. Of course Dudley is Peter's love child. And of course the whole plot and situation of Harry Potter is all a construction - a magnificent plan, in fact.
The only real criticism I have is that occasionally things happen a bit abruptly. If you were going to do anything with this story, I think it would be good if it got slowed down a little, but this isn't even that big of an issue, in my opinion.
This story was doomed to be a success from the very first premise - that it was all a plan made by Voldemort and Dumbledore, the two geniuses of the age - and you wrote it really well.
xD *Is happy* This is really awesome! Not only is it great fanfic but... IT CONTAINS VLAD TEPES!!! *Is very happy* I'm currently going through an obsession, you see. Not really because he was terrible and horrible and killed approximately 10% of his own people, but because of all the rest. Depending on the castle, the irony is really well done - Vlad having been attacked by an army of Turks lead by his brother Radu. *Dances* But then, of course, he was Radu the Beautiful, and rumoured to be gay, but still. The characters are really well done - Wormtail makes one go 'grr' but is not out of the group or anything, and *VLAD! MINCEA! RADU* Hem hem. And Lily's cravings and all that are exactly what the chapter needed. Oh, how I do so wish that Sirius had an older brother. Anyway, keep writing and well done and... YAY! *Attempts to return to the World of Normal People Who Make Sense in Their Reviews without sticking out too much*
Sirius's face must not be harmed... Remus's werewolf radiation... Hermione speaking in capitals... There is only one answer... This is a hilarious story! Well done in creating it! As I did with Tom Riddle and the Half Blood Prince as soon as I saw it months ago, I read your story up to here without stopping. I didn't even answer the phone... But that may have had something to do with the fact the fact that it didn't ring... Anyway, Congratz! Hoorah! Encore! Hifflesquash! Yippee! I can't wait to read the next installment. I am simply so happy to find a story (a) with the twins. They rock. (b) with Sirius but with no explanation further than the willpower of the author, and possibly readers. And (c) with Malfoy Jr meeting Voldemort, with hilarious consequences. Rock, party and most importantly write on!
Congratz, congratz! You're story is a work of art. Your portrayal of Malfoy is very well done. Not many could provide an insight into his mind, and yet not have him as an airheaded idiot, or an unfortunate victim, unhappy every time he does something unkind. I would also like to say I admire your well-used subtlety. It is, of course, necessary in such stories, but you use this element with great skill. The realistic natures of the characters must also be commended. Especially with Malfoy and Hermione, who, as they're commonly in the books and explored to a reasonable extent, can be hard to capture, at the same time as develop the characters, while keeping the story pushing on strongly. Anyway, I would again like to congratulate you on your masterpiece, and please get you to tell me when more will be added. My email address is 'firstname.lastname@example.org'. Thanking you muchly! ~JS
Hey! Well done. Well done indeed. I really love this story you've got going... It's easy to get kind of annoyed at the ones where Lily is acting like a butthead until about halfway through... etc, etc, etc. But anyway, you're doing really, really well. I have never considered Peter's thoughts and relationship with Bellatrix, or any other Death Eaters for that matter, and it works really well! I don't really get why Anne didn't tell anyone though... I mean, it's about Lily, and I thought she may have let slip to Alice... but maybe I am missing something. I also want to say that I absolutely love Alice and your interpretation/creation/whatever of her. She is so awesome! She would be a great friend. Also, the name for their group - Society of the Magical and Sparkly Orange Butterflies. I mean, the suggestion, and then they actually used it? xD Funny. This story is just great - not just based around James and Lily, or kicking them off to the side. Balance, and, and, and... You get it. Congratz, and keep writing!
Author's Response: Thank you! Yes, there is a back story to why Anne didn't tell anyone. In fact it's a rather large back story and you first get a glimpse of part of it next chapter. Anne is a pivotal character- very deep, and as you will soon find out, very... involved in some things. I'm glad you like Alice! She's the cute one in the story and also has quite a future ahead of her in my fic. I won't say anything now, but that it'll get more mysterious and interesting for everyone quite soon...
Hellooooo:) I only started reading the story just before the last chapter came, and it's awesome! Anyway, I think you're doing really well, especially with you're fantasmigorical usage of imperfections... meaning Draco isn't the tragically deluded hero with an unfortunate past, Pansy isn't the classic oblivious wife, Hermione isn't either an amazingly perfect influence to the house or children, etc etc etc. It being Blaise Zambini was an unexpected, but awesome decision for three reasons off the top of my head: One, he is close enough to still re-enter the story if need be without being ridiculous; two, it is believable that it could be him, and he would have an innitial emotional reaction from Hermione, but not as strong as Draco; and three: He has an awesome name! Blaise Zambini. Wow. Awesome. Rowling should have gotten an award for even thinking up such an awesome name. It rocks that mu- oh wait, I am still typing... whoops... anyway, keep up this excellent plot! I am sure I am not the only one to be happily and anxiously awaiting the next installment!
It's about time I reviewed this story. Really. About time. Not to mention, I could have sworn I already had...
Anyway, enough excuses.
I really like this story. It's so unique - completely different to any other humour fanfic I've read, here or elsewhere. The only thing I think I would change is probably some of the more scary randomness - but even then, it's a part of the way the story goes, and the ending makes it completely justified.
I think one of the most memorable moments is when Lupin is trying to convince Ethan that it is not, in fact, an advantage that Ron's asleep when they're about to give a quiz on drills. It's that kind of humour that works best, in my opinion, in your story. All the characters have a slightly bent sense of logic (or, in cases such as Dudley, barely any sense of logic), and it just... works.
So well done - I just love yours sense of humour!
I like the twist on the stories - it's really good how you've used the three of them, and not just Alice in Wonderland OR the Wizard of Oz. The Harry's-Modern-Thoughts fit in really awesomely. I love the line "Was this some sort of midget pigmy island?" LOL Dorothy would /never/ think that, or at least never say it. She was just all like 'Toto, it doesn't look like we're in Kanzas any more'. Also, I love the Flubberworm thing. Yay for the Flubberworm! Just as a suggestion, I think it would be really great if you managed to find a way to put in almost-quotes from not only The Wizard of Oz and Alice in Wonderland (Like, 'I'll get you, dear Harry, and your little owl too') but also prominent quotes from the Harry Potter books? I know this is after they've happened, but still. Like 'Mars is bright tonight', 'ten points from Gryffindor' and 'I see you've met my mother'. Etc etc etc. Anyway, it was good, and I can't wait for you to continue. The second chapter was better, I think. And there simply /must/ be a parallel of Dinah! Ok, I'll shut up now... ~Stone
Author's Response: Interesting ideas! Thanks! I never thought of the hogwarts lines. um... the Dinah thing? I'll try, but it may be hard. Though, remember, not impossible. I thought that the flubberworm was an oddly downtrodden creature, so why not turn it into something a bit more...creative than what it's usually used for. *nasty nasty comments.* Thank you again!
Wow - your story is really awesome. It has been sort of like a build up before James and Sirius made up, and it worked really well. The attention to detail, if that phrase makes sense in the situation, makes it work really well - the reaction from McGonagal and whatnot. Anyway, I only just say this fic, and it is going really well so far. I don't know who would not hate Bellatrix. *Shivers* Evil, scary person. Also, the spells James and Sirius used seem like really powerful ones. Wow. Especially an anti-jinx spell. I mean, Hogwarts had a form of that that can't be taken off! That's big stuff. Hoorah! Also, I think Sirius always tends to be this smooth, constantly on-top-of-things character, and him having trouble in transfiguration makes just so much sense. Were you conscious of what Ollivander said about James's wand being good with Transfiguration in particular, or was it coincidence? Many people forget that, it seems... wonder how I remembered... I hope Lupin stays in there in a big sort of role - he's such an awesome character, and I like the way you write him in. Well, congratz again. Can't wait until the next chapter.
Author's Response: Thank you very, very much!... Yes, I did remember about James's wand (or rather, I thought to put that in after rereading PS/SS for the fiftith time, lol)... Chapter 12 is the queue, so it will hopefully be up soon...
Wow, that's really, surprisingly awesome! And funny. *Tee hee hee* Hem hem, anyway, I love this story. It is freakishly in tune with my sense of humour. Please keep writing and all that! I can't wait to see what happens when they all meet:) *Dances*
Good day, good day. As all the other reviews are (most likely) doing, I am writing to congratulate you on this creation of yours. I think what separates it from many other Harry Potter fanfic stories is that you have been able to create it without changing characters, and without jumping between the points of view of people. Of course, the storyline is wonderful in itself, along with this; which makes up a great read. Congratz ;)
And suggestions, suggestions... hmm... well, firstly with the buddies, I like it how they have been matched. However, I would say that it would be awesome to have either Hermione or Ron's first-year to be decieving in appearance, and possibly evil. MHAHAHAHAHA! Hem hem. Anyway, yeah... Also with the first years, I would love to see someone related to Cornelius Fudge. That would be awesome!
LASTLY, I would really like to have either Slytherins in the Griffindor Common room, or vice versa in an emergency, or whatever reason... Well, just suggestions, but they are my thoughts. Congratz again!
Author's Response: I absolutely heart you. Thank you so much. I do believe I shall name a chapter after you... Yes, I do think I shall. Someone related to Fudge-- I might be able to work that in, I'll see if I can. And as far as Slytherins in the GCR, YOU GOT IT!!!
Oh, you've done it again, darl! *Wipes tear* It is so tragic - you hear all these things about Remus, and then Sirius is innocent, and unable to be at the funeral and... everything. Again, you have found the beauty and irony - just one small change in the situation, and so very much would be so very different, and ever so much less unfortunate. Rowling gave the original story line, but you gave it substance, and shape, and displayed aspects of the situation that many would have not thought of. It all seems in an almost stand-still until Harry's third year after seeing this, and the guys are just left there to exist with that knowledge and the little they have. This is mentioned, but not detailed, which you do exceptionally well. Makes you rather mad at Dumbledore though. *Grr!!!* Congratulations again, your skill will take you far, no doubt, and your insight is amazing.
Author's Response: Thankyou! I'm very flattered, you have really complimented my writing and it was really heartwarming to read, trying not to sound too corny. It is a very ironic story, I love writing about irony, as you will see in the third chapter of my new Marauders fic 'Maraudering Around,' if it ever gets accepted that is! I will be writing a sequel to this story too, coming in August, although I'm not sure what the title will be yet! I'm so pleased that you think I didn't just completely write what you knew already, because I tried very hard to use the Canon, but put my own plot into it too. Thankyou again for the wonderful review!
Hey xD I never really submit reviews on sad, sad stories, partly because I have no idea what to say. I mean, "Hey, that was awesome! I loved it!" seems kind of out of place when it is in a review of a story that makes you cry. Actually, I can't believe that it was sad enough to make me cry, but it was. Also, it was so very, very realistic and true to the characters that there was no way to cover up the sad aspects of the story with grumbles about certain characters would never do certain things, and how Pettigrew should actually be in the story, and how that reasoning of Sirius is just stupid and makes no sense. The characters were simply ingenious. I would like to, especially, refer to Peter's logic. It was so amazing. As he starts the decline from being wary, and keeping things from Voldemort to being a fully fledged Death Eater, you can see where it's going, and the unstopped corruption of Wormtail just makes you want to kill those Death Eaters, and Voldemort! Also, you can't do a review of the story - this chapter in particular - without mentioning Lupin. Everything about him made absolutely perfect sense. It molds in faultlessly with his behaviour when he met Harry, when he discovered Sirius and his innocence, when he saw Wormtail, and how he acted in the Department of Mysteries when Sirius died... Speaking of which, Sirius was awesome too. It's actually a slightly different perception of him than is usual, but that's a good thing. It makes sense, and it makes you disturbed to think that the next thing he did was spend years and years in Azkaban, which I hope is spelt right. Lily, of course, and James were both seamless. James was different to the usual perception also, with this added quality that is in him or Sirius. Whether this was deliberate, or it was just what felt right when writing, it is amazing. It is frustrating to think that things can't be solved in this story, that Lupin still has to believe it was Sirius and all that. Even this small change would be wonderful, him knowing before Sirius was locked up! But, alas. It can't happen. Well, I would not trust a funeral of the Potters' in the slightest as a whole chapter in most occasions, but somehow I am looking forward to it now. I hope you update really, really soon and sorry for this horrendously long review - just thought you may like to know I really appreciate your skill, and story. Keep writing, pleeeez :) Hopefully the stories will stretch to stories not quite so sad... but I can't really say that until I have checked your other stories yet, now can I? I will do that now... Eh, you probably don't need to know. Anyway, congratulations again. Your story is a masterpiece.
Author's Response: Wow! I don't know what to say to that really. Firstly, I am glad that my story broke your principles on sad fics. I wasn't setting out to depress people, but as I got deeper into the characters, you can't help but write it as the tradgedy that it must have been. I know that my perception of Sirius was different. But I like to think that it fits in with the books just as well as the Fanfiction comical Sirius that we have come to know. I am VERY nervous about how the Potter's funeral will come off. I know that it is breaking conventions to have Harry there. Don't worry about the long review; it was really thoughful and much appriciated! Thankyou! Please ignore that spelling mistakes, I type faster than I think.
Hey, it's me again... the one who doesn't review sad stories, reviewing again... But I just couldn't help it! Your story is absolutely beautiful - heartbreaking. I was afraid you may have something about Peter, and that would be very likely to spoil the mood. But... yeah. Beautiful, like I said. You have done an amazing, amazing job. Especially Lupin's opinion of Sirius, angry, sad, etc, but wanting to know why. Well done again. It's sad to think that he really doesn't see Harry for 11 years? 12?
Author's Response: I know. It's such a sad Canon to work with! I am glad that you like it so much! Heartbreaking is a really good word to describe the situation. Peter is coming in the next chappie; well, to the extent that Sirius will mention him. Split POV; Remus and Sirius, you see. I wanted to get them both in but it was too short as two chapters, so I had to have it as one. Can't wait until it's all up and out there!
Hey:) Well, this is also a story off to a good start! The only thing I would have put differently would be Andromeda. I saw this fan-art picture of her and from then I have thought of her as really cool, and the kind of person who would know about or even be in the Order. I also think of her as dead (*Hopes these opinions coincide with the books at lease slightly*). But your view of her is fully legitimate, and cool in a different way... Erm, enough about Andromeda... I love the relationship between Tonks and Hermione - that's done really well. Like I said, good story but you really blow most Tonks/Lupin stories out of the water with Missing Scenes. If you ever update this one, be sure to make it known... please? Well, good luck and never ever stop writing.
Author's Response: *snerk* Honestly, I had no idea who or what or how I thought Andromeda was, so I just made her a typical mom. I actually rather like your portrayal better. Except for the dead part. Er. But anyway...for some reason, I always thought that Tonks and Hermione would have a close, or at least quite friendly, relationship. My other two Remus/Tonks stories suck, but they do have Hermione being cool in them, so that's okay. And I'm so happy you like Missing Scenes!! I'll admit, out of all my stories, that's my own personal favorite, so hearing that others like it as well makes me terribly happy. Thanks so much for the exciting reviews!
