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 I’m proudest of? I don’t know what you’re talking about. But, you know, they are pretty important aspects of you, so for the sake of them, I’d 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 Happy’s story, it’ll be far worse than (almost) anything that could happen as a result of you reading it. Right?
Anyway, my name’s Georgia, I’ve recently fallen in love with the Prewett family, I have a long term humour story which you may have noticed I’m attempting to promote–
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, I’d 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
It’s an ongoing humour fiction starring an OC called Happy O’Brien, 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 you’re used to.
The rumours are true, the first drafts are too, and this story had been nominated thrice for best humour fiction.
THAT’S 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*

Prewett’d : Gucky and the Fork Tree
It’s a one shot of pretty good length, about Gideon, Fabian and Molly as children, submitted for the One Shot Challenge: Muggle Artifacts. It’s the first story I’ve written about the Prewetts, and certainly not the last.
… 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 I’ve 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, it’s 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 I’m sure you’ll 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!
I can't remember whether I have left a review yet, but your story is really funny - and quite obviously completely AU. The initial comment on fanfic Hermione is oh-so-true and then the rest is hilarious! Please keep up the good work.
Author's Response: Thank you! My next addition (which is finally in queue, is my favorite chapter out of all of them, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it! Long live Dra-ville!
Look! I'm the first person to review this Chapter! *Wipes tear* I'm so very prowd of Dra-ville. He learned to change from a language yet unknown to anyone but himself, Remmie and occasionally Ron Jr. in one day! Another wonderful chaper, and /somehow/ you manage to advance the plot among the heavy and thick randominity and somewhat prominent absurdity. Well, I look forward to the next chapter of you very... um... /unique/ story. :P
Author's Response: Thank you for your generous review! Every once in a while, I get a random funny thought for the story, and I jot it down before I forget it. It was hard for me to let Dra-ville actually talk, but the plot monster was glaring at me. I had to do it... I have to re-create chapter seven, because it seems my files on my broken computer are unretrievable... Major bummer.
Hey:) Just thought I'd drop you a note to say well done, and keep writing! And a bartender with white teeth? Well, that chucks the stereotype in the bin... anyway, well done, and keep writing!
Author's Response: Thanks! Chapter two is in queue, and it seems to be taking forever, it's driving me crazy. Well, keep reading and thank you for reviewing!
After some difficulty Lily and James pursue a relationship and face the demands, circumstances, and heartache caused by the war with Lord Voldemort as they grow into adulthood together. Also, with special emphasis on Remus Lupin. Slightly AU.
September 1st, 1977- The Marauders reconvene to discuss new duties and tactics for their final year at Hogwarts.
Wow! I'm the first one to review! That has happened 5...6...7... 0 times! This story looks really promising, and I like the idea of Moony being head boy instead... especially in fan fictions, the heads status is used very, very, very often as a tool in the relationship between Lily and James... although that probably is what actually happened... But excuse me for babbling. I love your method of writing these legindary characters. Rock on. Especially Moony, Sirius and Wormtail, as they are often written differently... more annoying, you see. Not much else to say really after the intro. chapter, but I look forward to reading the rest of your story! Keep up the awesome work!
Author's Response: you make me happy inside. Thank you for your support. I never really did get the James being Head boy thing. Out of curiosity, do you know where the idea of Head dorms came from?
Hello again, darl! I'm ba-ack! Not that I ever went anywhere, but still. This next installment was good x). Your perception on Mad-Eye Moody is interesting - actually a lot different than many others. How old do you think he is? Well, I really love the line, "I went to school with the rotten b-" Moody caught Mrs. Weasley's eye, glanced at Ginny, and changed his word choice. "— bloke.” And you know, I didn't find Ginny's small part in this chapter annoying, including the tiny Harry-Ginny hint? Do you know how rare that is? Well... well, you do now, so... HA! I like the way the story is turning out, especially since you have perceptions of, I think, all the characters that are different from mine, so it's interesting. I await the next chapter. ~MOM
Author's Response: Yessss, it's you! I *heart* your reviews. On to other stuff...I loved writing Moody. I've never really done so before, but I really liked it. It was fun to play with his character and make him gruff but teasing at the same time. Heh. I'm thinking he's, er, somewhere between 60 and 80. Probably more around the 60 range; even though wizards live longer than Muggles, I still see him as on the younger side of oldish. Ooh, I was hoping everyone would understand that quote. I also wasn't aware of how rare it was for you to not be annoyed by the H/G stuff. There's a little more, only building off of the stuff in HBP, though. Not too much, really. I'm so relieved that you like this story even though it's apparently completely the opposite of how you think. ^_^ Thanks so much for leaving the greatest reviews on this story!
Hey, darlink! You know why you haven't updated yet? Because I haven't reviewed! Because, you see, it all comes down to whether I have reviewed or not, and, if I haven't, how /could/ you update? Much to the pleasure of the general population, I'm a'gonna review now though, and hopefully this formatting works.
I really like this chapter! It's not my favourite, mostly because:
a) No Lupin
b) Grumpy Tonks, full on
c) I really like the chapter with Moody and Ginny in it
so really, a lot of it couldn't be helped. I'm afraid I know what you mean about Dumbledore though. I feel he just doesn't quite... get there, if you know what I mean. He's a really hard character to write, and, quite truthfully, while it's very interesting, Dumbledore, as I think of him, probably wouldn't talk to Tonks about her love life, even indirectly.
Whew. Bad stuff over with! You placed the scene around Harry's meeting up with Tonks outside the Room of Requirement very skillfully. In explaining this bit, you run a terrible risk of sounding like you're dragging the story along, and this, unfortunately, was a bit that had to go in to remain canon. You totally avoided that, like meeting Harry wasn't something that had to be done, but something that enhanced the story. I'm afraid I don't know how to spell 'kudos'.
I thought your interpretation and writing of Dawlish was well done too. It's easy to just see him as an obstacle or two-dimensional plot-twist, but he was really a character, and, at the same time, his humanity was not exaggerated.
Similarly, I feel you handled Tonks's dual run-ins with Snape very well. It's even easier to make him into just another obstacle to make a character's life harder. Also, I like how he communicates ever-so-slightly differently with people who are not students. Specifically, Tonks. And he had the same attitude as when they met at the gates of Hogwarts at the beginning of HBP. Also, when he was at Dumbledore's office, Snape was well done. By you. Tonks's natural curiosity, despite her current non-curious tendencies, was great, but you didn't underline, highlight and circle the Snape-Dumbledore issue unnecessarily.
Complementing when complements are undeserved or lies? Heck, no. Overcompensating for not reviewing sooner? Maybe a tiny bit. Babbling unnecessarily and throwing my ability to be concise out the window? No comment. But well done, darlink. I await the next chapter.
Alright, alright, so it's /slightly/ corny. S-L-I-G-H-T-L-Y! And I am more than willing to completely ignore and/or deny this given the fact that the story's so good, involves Remus Lupin, and is a Lupin/Tonks pairing at that. So this particuler story is written then... awesome! The chapters come faster that way, and faster chapters makes he happy. I still think you should keep writing though. You understand the characters well and are good at putting them on paper. If you don't, Ah well. At least I get this story :P Also, the first line 'Molly Weasley liked being a mother.' That was funny. Unexpected and funny. I sort of did a mini-double-take because I thought it would be through the eyes of Tonks or Remus or a different, somewhat less realistic Molly. So yeah - good line. Also, in the letter, I don't really know so certainly about the beginning of it, but 'I hate to see Tonks so depressed; but I'd hate even more to see her with someone like me.' Wow. That's a good line. I hope the next chapter comes through fast *stares at screen*
Author's Response: o_O Slightly corny? That was cornier than....a field in Kansas. Er, no offense to Kansasians (*?*), I'm not sure how much corn you actually have out there...ANYWAY. (I have ADD, I really do.) Well, at least you'll ignore it. The good news is, the next chapter and a couple more after that are not terrifically corny. The bad news is...this one wasn't the corniest chapter. *facepalm* Yes, there's worse! Oh, gads! Ah, well. The chapters will be coming at light speed, or as light-speedy as chapters can go through. I don't know how I'd be able to write more of this, honestly, it leans heavily on the actual books...mmph. Yeah, Molly as the narrator was spur-of-the-moment, but there was one line I really wanted through her eyes, so I thought "Ehh, what the heck?" Remus's letter is goofy, I know. Corny, too. Grah! *blush* *small voice* I liked that line too, though...*louder voice* Don't strain your eyes, dearie, I haven't sent [slightly less corny] chapter 3 in yet. *grin* Thanks so much for your reviews, they make my day a little happier!
Your story is looking really wonderful so far. It would be so hard to write that scene and not make it overly corny or OOC-y or chick-flic-y, but you did, and you did an amazing job at that, with both of them. Please keep writing! I'm sure I'm not the only one who'll be waiting...
Author's Response: Now I'm terrified that all my future scenes won't meet a standard of non-corniness. I'll be honest, I think most of my stuff is cornier than the floor of a movie theatre. (Get it?...Popcorn...? Oh, I need a nap.) I hope you guys will go easy on me, though, lol. Baha, I don't *need* to keep writing! I finished the story! That makes me happy. So for once, I won't leave my few readers hanging whilst I desperately try to finish a chapter. This one is done. This review makes me happy, so I thank you muchly for that!
Hi, darlink! *Waves* Well, as one may assume, I really loved the flash-backs. They show Tonks's character development in such a consise, yet effective way. Well done! Well, I just wanted to know that your story is very inspiring. Every time I come here, I write bunch more on my own, which is, as you may have guessed, rather different, but still a Tonks/Lupin story, which I can't wait to post. Andromeda's dead though. Poor thing. Anyway, this chapter is really sweet. You ran a serious threat of making Dumbledore OOC, a very, very easy thing to do, but you managed to nail it. Just like with Ginny. She and Tonks have this closeness, but also a great distance between them, in your story, which I really like. The tension and Miserable!Tonks-iness are really building up a sort of suspence, and I can't wait to see what happens. You've done it again, darl. ~MOM
Author's Response: Hello yourself, m'dear! I always love seeing your reviews. They make me happy. And it also makes me happy that you like the flashbacks! I was worried about how those ones would go over. And...inspiring? Wow. I'm flattered. (I cannot WAIT to read your story, by the way. Post it, post it!) *wails* Oh, Dumbledore was terrible. It gets worse in the next chapter. I've never written Dumbledore before, not ever, so he's going to be badly mediocre at best. *sigh* Oh, well. Ooh, the tension, the tension. Sadly, nothing terribly climactic happens. Well, in a sense. But it's really cheesy. And corny. Both at once. Blehh. *snort* Oops, I did it again...lol. Couldn't resist, mate. *wink* Thanks for this review -- fantastic and helpful, as always!
1st story in a series of Hermione/Draco one-shots (Check out my author page for more information)
In my opinion, this story became a 'landmark' in fanfiction. Especially sarcastic, humour fanfiction. And it did so for a very good reason.
It's impossible to read this without, well, laughing to start with, but what really stands out is the fact that hey - you've got a point, and have put it into words in a way that drives everything home strongly, and is utterly hilarious. The frustrations of us common people with the 'typical' dodgy Draco/Hermione story are really well articulated. So... yeah. *Gives small beacon of gratitude.*
I think it's really effective how all the characters are bored with everything one minute, but then play out their parts of the plot, and everything just reeks of well-written sarcasm.
In my opinion, this is simply a fantastic story, and just about everyone can probably benifit, in one way or another, from reading it.
Author's Response: My, what a flattering review. I\'m not a blushing person, but if I were I\'d be crimson right now. I\'m so pleased to hear you like this story so much. Gosh, I don\'t even know what to respond, other than thank you so very much, Mind_Over_Matter. ~Eilime
Aww, darlink. You should really be getting more reviews. Shame those people who are not reviewing. And after this chapter too! And look at the last one! THE THIRD CHAPTER IS /AMAZING/, PEOPLE. Geez. I mean, come on, can't y'all just see Fred and Gabrielle tearing around the dance floor? Or the really lovely Harry-and-Ginny-dancing scene? And the last dream, which Roxy you wrote really-really-really-really well? Tut tut tut... Anyway, the actual 'reviewing'. This isn't where you're meant to comment on reviews. Roxy, this is a really awesome story, and I can't wait for the next chapters to be posted (coughandforyoutosendthenewchaptersevencough). Well, you obviously know /I/ fell in love with this chapter, and I'm sure lots of other people have too. The story's just beautiful, even though we see so much of Ginny-who-is-like-SUCH-a-typical-little-sister. Rock on, pumpkin! Whoot! ~MOM
Ro-oxy! I didn't know you had already posted anything here *grumblegrumble* and I, of course, had to come and review because I love the story! As a complete outsider when it comes to anything to do with this story, I'd like to say that it's really fabulous, and rarely do I find a Ginny that does not make me want to give her a good boot up the backside. I can't wait until you post the *shuts up*... I can't wait until I can finally get to your fifth and sixth chapters - I wish I could have done that at school instead of rotting away, writing drabble about copper. Copper, I ask you! Geesh. So... yes. Well done, and keep posting! And congratulations again on getting into the beta-guild.
Author's Response: I shoulda told you, sorry!!! Please, oh, please forgive me!!! Copper's fun, you know you can change it from solid copper to liquid copper hydroxide to copper oxide to copper sulfate, then with a little zinc, you can get copper chunks again? I think it's totally awesome!!! Sorry, science geek in me... Moving on... I'm glad you like my story! It would totally suck if my super beta didn't like it! Thanks for the review, darlin'! Love your work! *Roxay* (No, I didn't misspell my name just wanted to give it an extra oomph!)
The story is really gorgeous, Roxy! It's so amazing how you manage to make Ginny just so - so /Ginny/. I can almost imaging Harry proposing in the snow, and then either Ron or one of the twins laughing at him when they found out. Well done!
Author's Response: Well, it's based on a true proposal, so... sigh, why can't I have a guy like that? Thanks for reviewing!! I'm glad ya like it very much!
Aww =( I think it's very unfortunate that you people have not been swamped with reviews. I really love how this story is going - it must be very difficult to characterise the Marauders at such a young age, and so very-very-very well. Especially given that this will be Remus/Sirius, you fellow(s?) characterise James in particular in a fabulous manner, and that is essential for any story to work. Because James is so important and awesome. Also, I like how Sirius is a bit of a drama queen, but you can see it's just the way he's thinking to himself, and not horrible angst (for example, when he had /no one/ ;D). I sit here, eating Butter-Menthols and high on sugar, impressed, and I truly ruly dooly can't wait for the tale to continue! So please make it. Pleeease? *Begs* Oh, and rock on.
Author's Response: Well, if you really think that it's sad, you always could rec us, you know, if you wanted to....The Marauders are proving harder to write during second year actually; it's hard to write their reaction to finding out without having them sound like they're seventeen. But that's why it's a work in progress, right? (And we're a bunch of girls, actually, not fellows; although I--Slian--will be writing all the Hogwarts years.) I'm putting up the next chapter now, have the next one written, in middle of the one after that and already have the four chapters taking us from third year to fifth. It's pretty much done after that, actually. Just a question on how quickly we can get stuff through Q. Keep reading and thanks for the review!
This poem is amazing! I love the way you managed to keep the same pattern as seen in the book. It had just the perfect mix of irony and seriousness, so that it was funny, but not in bad taste. Well done ^^
Aww =(... no one has reviewed... And that's a shame, because I think this story has real potential. I mean, obviously the different storylines haven't gotten off the ground much yet, but I can see the 'Soap Opera' idea, and I think it will be fun to play with. For a humour fic, you're doing well keeping the characters in character, although I admit that was probably... err, impossible to do perfectly with Voldemort. I look forward to the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thank you for the review! I am trying to keep the characters canon, but with some of my plot lines (ie - Voldemort and Luna) it will be tough. Please let me know if I deviate too much with any of my characters.
Wow. O-O It's hard to think of what to say. This story is absolutely enchanting. And, of course, on the slightly more technical note, the transition of the characters between very different situations was done ingeniusly. Well done!
Author's Response: And I\'m absolutely delighted. ^.^ Thank you really for your kind words! I love your word construction!
This is a truly excellent idea for a story! Your writing is just realistic enough to keep the characters somewhat believeable, as well as keeping most of their dignity, which just makes the jokes funnier. Well done, and I hope you update soon!
Author's Response: Thanks! I try my best to keep the characters in character because it makes it more enjoyable generally! :)
Well, this is a point of view not usually explored, and I think you're going about it very well. Usually, I don't find OCs in main roles in a story encouraging at all, but Cassandra is written extremely well, and her personality is so realistically constructed that it's hard not to like her. I look forward to her arrival at Hogwarts - what I'm assuming will be another side of Filch and the student population's general reaction to her, because some would sympathise, and some would be all high and mighty about it... So yes. Very exciting. *Stares at screen, waiting for next chapter*
Author's Response: You\'re just everywhere today, aren\'t you? I meant that in a good way, in case it sounded sarcastic. And I\'m loving her arrival at Hogwarts as well. I wouldn\'t call what Filch is going to be like so much of \'another side\' but... well you\'ll just have to wait and see, won\'t you? But you\'ll meet Filch and (most) of the staff in the next couple of chapters, and the students will be introduced in chapter... four, I believe. Actually I just finished writing chapter three, so that will be quite fun to write... and now I\'m babbling. Thanks for the excellent review! P.S. I like your username as well!
Luna is such a sweet character - very underrated by the trio - and this story is heaps of fun. I especially like the bit about Padma giggling - "I find it quite nice to enjoy a good joke in the morning, and I’m glad that she is starting off her day so well..." That's just so Luna. Well done!
Author's Response: Thanks. Luna is very underrated. In canon and fanon. I like to think that I can relate to her as a character, but I think I\'m flattering myself. :) Thanks for reviewing
