I have a taste for history, and I can often be found watching educational channels.
I'm a poet, along with being an aspiring novelist.
I will probably never post any fanfiction, but I do greatly enjoy reading it.
This website has helped me make a ton of friends, and learn a lot more about writing.
Summary: Hermione Granger made a career out of protecting house-elves. At forty-eight, she had moved on to bigger and better things. But when asked to take leave from work, Hermione is certain this can only mean failure.
So when Ron brings home the story of Honey the house-elf, Hermione makes a decision that could alter the course of her career - and ultimately her life.
Not only does Hermione have to convince the entire Wizengamot of Honey's innocence, she must also prove it to her family. And they have become those least likely to believe her.
‘Honey,’ I said. ‘That’s an unusual name for a house-elf.’
Ron cleared his throat loudly. ‘It’s also unusual for a house-elf to commit a murder.’
Epilogue now up!
I liked this story because Hermione and Ron are so in character.(I mean,who else would be a house elf's lawyer but Hermione?)It was also very realistic that that Honey actually did get sentenced,too.
Author's Response: Aw, thank you. I tried to keep it as real as possible :D ~ Cassie
Summary: The Sorting Hat is confused. Gryffindor or Ravenclaw? Then, a certain Sirius Black unknowingly comes to help - the only time he would ever do something useful for the school.
Great story!I'll be reveiwing some other Angela stories ASAP!I like how she wasn't in the same House with Sirius!(Ther would've been a war if she had!LOL)

But what will ensue on her extremely dangerous journey where Hogwarts seems to have been flipped upside down?

Summary: The final installment in the Potter’s Pentagon Trilogy. Read “The Five” and “The Truth” first, myess? Okay!
WARNING! Contains Muggle adventures in Diagon Alley, unusual eyebrows, cheesy clichés galore, psycho Ted, the not-so-lost years of Merlin, a school-wide singalong, the old potato joke, Tyrone’s Princess Bride obsession, Emma’s stubborn denial of the existence of Tyrone’s mustache, a graphic death, a joke shop product as a major plot device, hobo Jordan, Jordan hugging, Jordan pulling pranks, time travel, the Love Shack, angst, and worst of all, Professor Zabini.
It’s the sixth year for Potter’s Pentagon and company, and our heroes learn that in the wizarding world, coming of age has a somewhat weightier significance. Students are busy with an Inter-House Unity Project, Jordan is having weird dreams, Pansy and Ophidias Malfoy have been released from Azkaban, Professor Zabini has a mysterious project of his own, and almost everyone is acting strangely. Meanwhile, at the Ministry of Magic, a man with a vendetta against Ron Weasley is trying his hardest to get him in the biggest trouble possible. Is the only way to save him to travel into the past?
New talents are discovered, new friendships form and old ones change, pasts are dredged up, and, of course, there’s lots of good old-fashioned snogging. And one of the five kills for the first time… while another becomes a casualty of war.

Nominated for 2008 Quicksilver Quills Best Post-Hogwarts Story.
First things first:
he had heard Haley’s .....no ofense, Schmergo, but that line is getting old, I'm afraid.
This showed a very realistic side of Ted, one that didn't creep me out with sappiness. ^_^
Mrs. Malfoy was very IC. Very, very IC.
After reading your Nott stories and visiting his MC page, I now am fighting you for him.....*sighs*
Wes.....Who is a girl!
Author's Response: Oh, wow, I didn't realize I had used that line more than once! I usually had several weeks between writing each chapter, so I must have come up with that line more than once! I'll edit that out next time I find it in a chapter. And I'm glad you liked my use of Ted and Mrs. Malfoy! I don't know what the MC Page is, though! Care to help me and my misplaced memory?
twenty-nine hundred and eight planets
-Perhaps I'm just obsessed from NO ANDS IN MATH WORDS LECTURE, (courtesy of Mrs.Johnston) I think the and may not belong...
As soon as she stepped outside, she drew out her wand and murmured, “Finite Incantatem,” ending the recording spell. Her masterpiece was ready.
-OH. MY. GODRIC.
“And it’s our choices that make us who we are, not our abilities.”
-'Our choices that define us...', sorry, I'm just BEYOND PICKY when it comes to exactness of quotes.
Christina and Nathanael and me.”
-'Nathaneal' is how it is normally, this may be your alternate version.
2 entirely random questions!!!:
How do you pronounce Giorgi's name?
Are you aware Sharon Osbourne's maiden name is Arden? Thought about that while looking at both the America's Got Talent page and PP2.
Technically speaking, it was Ophidias Malfoy. But it was not the Ophidias that Hogwarts knew. No longer the miserable, slouching ghost he’d been since his time in Azkaban, he looked almost like the old Ophidias—head held high, expression defiant, movements decisive and eyes daring anyone to stop him. But the old Ophidias would never have joined hands with a small Gryffindor first year and closed the circle of students, singing alongside the rest of the chain.
Ivy smiled over at him, and he smiled back, his own expression as disbelieving as those surrounding him.
“All you need is love, love
Love is all you need.”
-I have no idea why, but that made me choke up.
a third year girl named Papadakis
-Hannie's last name in the BSC books. *fangirls*
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to scream like a loony. WOOOOHOOOOO!”
-I SAID THIS EXACT LINE!! When I was told I was going to Myrtle Beach on vacation.
My Potter's Pentagon OTP = Carlos and Heather.
I loved this chapter!! It was amazing, my favorite by a mile!
Schmerg_The_Impaler, I, weasleywannabe47 hereby award you a....
I think Jordan wants to be a Muggle musician when he grows up...
Author's Response: As for the quote that is NOT exact from Dumbledore... I intentionally didn't want it to sound the same. Because I wanted it to sound more casual, you know-- it's a father and son talking, not Dumbledore and a student. But yeah, you're right about that. I think Nathaniel is the usual spelling, but I named him Nathanael because I saw someone at my school had that name and I thought it was a GORGEOUS name! Especially since Nathaniel with an I is the name of that weird guy that Timothy Spall played in Enchanted.
Giorgi's name is pronounced "GEORGE-ee." Like "Georgey" or "Georgie." I think it's a cute sounding name however you spell it, but spelling it 'Giorgi' is so much morefitting for her personality, you know? I didn't know that about Sharon Osbourne, actually. I named Arden after a girl in my eighth-grade gym class who looked exactly like the mental image I had of the character (but didn't act anything like her, except that they're both smart, nice, and artistic).
OH MY GOSH, I LOVE THE BABY SITTERS CLUB! That is totally where I got the last name for the Seeker! My favorite was always Mallory... because she's the writer. But yeah, Emma = Kristy, Haley = Kind of Claudia, Ivy = Mary Ann! And oh yeah, go Carlos and Heather!
Thank you so much, I'm so glad you liked this chapter, Wes!
-Is Haley being Haley, or is this a typo?
Unfeasible,” corrected Anatoly
-Oh, nevermind. *giggles*
Excellent suggestion indeed.
-I *think* there should be a comma between suggestion and indeed.
‘Eccentric’ was a good words for him.
-Words should be singular.
He will be safe,
-Safe dosen't seem the right word here. 'he will recover', I think.
I liked this chapter. It had more 'oomph' to it than the past few have had.
I am starting to believe my 'Ted willl accidentally kill Ivy' theory is correct, based on the Charybedis.....incident.....
The best chapter so far.....so I award it a:
Yay for you, Schmergo!
Why don't you ever go in the Bar? It's fun!
Author's Response: Haley is definitely just beihg Haley! That's totally what makes him Haley. (I seem to remember that by saying 'he will be safe,' I meant that Charybdis isn't going to get him again...) Glad you liked this chapter, and I audibly gasped when I saw your rating! I was thriiiillled! Also-- I don't go in the Bar because I have trouble keeping up with all of the TQs and postings. BLAAA!
Jordan's dream was so cool!!!I never have dreams like that....*sigh*
The unity pairings....I can't wait to meet Cecilia!
~Here are my predictions that I'll be sticking to!~
Character that dies:if isn't one of the Five,it's probably Tyrone.If it is it's probably Haley.
Character that kills:Ivy...maybe...
~And those are my probably wrong predictions!~
I think Ted's ailment is diabetes.He shows most of the symptoms.....
(Please bear with me if there were any spelling mistakes!)
I am glad you had fun at Disney World!(I personally like Dollywood better but I went during Hurricane Katrina,so there were virtually no people there!)
Author's Response: I have very weird dreams, but not like Jordan's... I had one about Michael Ball coming to my house and eating spaghetti and talking about a Les Miserables fanfiction he was writing. I like your predictions... that's all I'm gonna say... as for Ted, you are very astute, young lady!
Dude, I love Dollywood. That place is amazing. I like Disney, too, though-- I can't really compare them.
OHMYJONAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I WAS THE FIRST PERSON TO GUESS ABOUT TEDWARD'S DIABETES!!!!*sqees hysterically*Okay,I would now like to ask you a question:Why have I been able to see the next chapter title on the scroll down bar on the review page since the day the previous chapter was submitted?
Also,I'm sorry I was a day late on my reviewing....I was at a program....SO SORRY!!
~Sothern belles follow the Son~
Author's Response: Hahaha, yes you were. Congratulations! As for why you were able to see the chapter title and stuff... well, that's as much a mystery to me as it is to you. I know nothing about this site's technology.
No need to apologize about not reviewing... I'd be rather sad to think you only read my stories to keep from hurting my feelings!
Glumly, he conjured an apple out of thin air, then took a big bite.
-You can't conjure up food, it's stated many times in DH.
the middle of a bonsai forest
-I think it's spelled 'bansai'.
I liked this chapter, and have now decided to stick with my original predictions.
Zabini and Bellowes are up to something and I think it has to do with werewolves...
This chapter, I thought , fleshed out the 'New Jordan quite well, however I think Emma's hormones are psyco!
I've missed you! Gawsh, (sorry, just re-read the Clique; do you read that?) it's been a MONTH!
I was having withdrawals!
Author's Response: I actually wrote this story before Deathly Hallows came out-- but that's okay, because It wasn't real food, it was for show! Jordan's just being dramatic again! Emma is such a loon. But awww, Wes, I have missed you and your reviewing, too! I've never read the Clique-- not really a fan of chicklit-- but my sister likes it... she's very much your typical Haleyish girly-girl, and I'm the one who reads, like, Discworld and books about presidential assassinations and stuff! ^_^
I bet Ted's gonna start attackin' Ivy in werewolf form (she's in wolfy form too)
and she defends herself and accidentally kills him!!!!
*hopes its not true*
Author's Response: Ooh my, very interesting theory there! Glad you liked the chapter... the next one should be up fairly shortly.
SCHMERGO!IT'S BEEN FOREVER!!!!
yes,well,*Clears throat*....Ioved the Emma/Tyrone fluffiness!They are sooo cute together!::I sHiP tYrEmMa::
Ahm,why is Jordy acting weird?!Well,we'll find out!
~Southern belles follow the Son!~
Author's Response: I submitted this forever ago! Don't blame meeeee! ^_^ The Tyremma shipping was probably my favourite part of writing this story. It WAAAS a lot of fun. And Jordan's acting weird because he's Jordan, duh! Haha.
Only one nit-pick this go-round:
Arthur looked as though he’d just been told he was the Queen of Sheba.
-Was Sheba even around then? I can't find a specific time period on yahoo, so I might just be being paranoid about time periods.
I liked this chapter, but I felt like it 'left' Potter's Pentagon during the Harry and Jordan scene, and became some sort of horror movie.
Not that I'm complaining. It was the kind of scary my friends call 'deliciously terrifyingingly scary.'
I liked this chapter, it flowed well with the others.
How many chapters doest this story have, total?
Psst! I can't get a Facebook, but feel free to mash the 'Contact' button in my profile.
I now have my very own email/IM.
I wish I could get a Facebook though...*sigh*
Author's Response: I just want to say this about the time period-- the scene was viewed from Jordan's point of view, so Jordan was thinking, "hmm, he looks like he just told him he was the Queen of Sheba!" It's Jordan's thought, not Arthur's. And I know what you meant about it seeming like a scary horror movie thing... I split a chapter in half for this one and the next, so the 'feel' of this chapter was different than I expected. I believe this story might have 27 chapters, though it might be 26.
Cecilia looked up wide-eyed from her homework
-wide-eyed, I do believe, is an appostive phrase- therefore, it should be punctuated with commas.
The seven of them stepped inside. And Anatoly followed.
-I know I sound like a middle aged English teacher, but I dislike it when people begin sentences with 'and'.
This. Is. A. Cruel. Thing. To. Do!!! Is she dead? Playing?
This was my favorite chapter. (I know, there's something wrong with me..) You did a great job capturing all the emotions of the moment.
Haley's 'death scene', however, I thought was a bit...not-nicely worded- 'Crunch' is too casual, too cruel of a term for a death- But that is just me.
Author's Response: CRUNCH!
Oh. Well, I just read all the reviews, so...Haley's dead.
I predicted that- but that doesn't mean I'm not A VEWWWY, WEWWWY sad girl.
My orginal predictions were right after all....
I'm such a bad person for predicting this. It's all my fault!
*goes Flair-shopping on Facebook to console myself*
Author's Response: To quote Voldemort from "A Very Potter Musical"-- "You'd think that killing people would make them like you, but it doesn't. It just makes people dead." ;-(
This was an extreeemely awesome chapter, and I think you characterized all of the characters, especially Luna, really well.
As this is a fairly short chapter, there really isn't any more for me to say but
Author's Response: Yeah, this chapter's very short because I had to split a very long chapter in half due to word limit! The next chapter is especially exciting, though. And I am glad you liked my characterization of the canon characters, because I've never written Luna or (non-silly) Bellatrix before, and I was really scared about that.
-Isn't it spelled "Poliakoff"?
-Yup. Just looked it up.
Goblet of Fire, page 257 (American edition, of course)
-Erm....is this teal your talking about, or is this a color I'm unfamiliar with?
with a square neck and they were accentuated by a square neck and short puffed sleeves.
-You said 'square neck' twice.
I’m sorry, you didn’t ask for a furious rant.
-JORDAN! TO BE CALLED A RANT, YOU MUST INCLUDE THESE:!!!
Haha, Schmergo, he just drives me crazy. But thats PROPS to you 'cause you make him
What I can’t believe is that Haley is almost an adult.
-Jeepers. I never thought of her as older than 8 in maturity. Wow.
A zero was enough to bring his GPA down from an O! It could wreck his prospects and ruin his high school career, and he wouldn’t get to be class valedictorian!
-Sounds like me.....
Um… hi… er…want to go to the ball with me?”
. “Sure, I mean, of course,”
-WOOHOO! This is a DAAATE! I GOT MY WISH!!
OH MY GOSH! This is the best chapter yet.
It took us from Jordan being normal....to Jordan being.....paranormal!
This was wonderful!
CAN YOU BELIEVE THE CHEESINESS CALLED TWILIGHT BEAT HARRY POTTER AT KIDS CHOICE AWARDS???
Author's Response: OH MY GOSH! I spelled Poliakoff wrong AGAIN. I keep doing that. Zarrrgh. Tea blue is a color-- it's kind of a opaque medium blue. I read too many clothing catalogues-- they have weird colors in them. I'm really, really, really happy that you liked this chapter. You're a nicey nice nicerson.
WAIT, WHAT??? Twilight beat Harry Potter? Zurgh. Now I'm a really mad person.
WHAT IS JORDAN"S CAREER CHOICE?IT'S DRIVING ME MAD!I really like Tabitha!I wanted her to be in Gryffindor,though.And I am glad LEE's back.I'm glad we can see Tyrone's normal side when he's cheering for his sis.Update soon!
Author's Response: JORDAN WANTS TO BE A BALLERINA! ^_^ I don't know, I loved the idea of big, loud, crazy Tyrone having a shy, timid little sister... who's in Ravenclaw. Tyrone may be many wonderful things, but he's not exactly an intellectual.
Favorite Character: Jordan! I loved him from the very beginning..I don't know why!
The one about the burning shlurpees. (Ohmygosh, that sentence is legend at my school. Courtesy of me.)
“Merlin, I have one more question,” he said at last. “Am I really talking to you… or is this all just in my head?”
Merlin raised his eyebrows. “Of course it’s all in your head. But why on earth should that mean it isn't real?"
Jordan knew Merlin’s tone. It was the way he always sounded in Jordan’s visions when he quoted people. “Who said that?” he asked.
“Someone from the future,” Merlin replied almost immediately, then seemed to realize who he was talking to. “The future for me, that is. She’s quite established in your world. You may have heard of her-- she’s another Seer, and quite famous.”
Jordan furrowed his brow. Merlin was the only famous Seer he had ever heard of. “What’s her name?” he asked.
Merlin smiled mysteriously. “J.K. Rowling,” he replied.
Word. That was genius!
Schmergo, I've already told you hom much this story helped me through a very hard time, and still, on days when I just can't take it anymore, I go back and re-read that particular chapter.
So this story will always stand as my favorite fanfic, and YOU will always be one of my favorite authors anywhere, fanfiction or elsewise.
Thanks, Schmergo. So much. :)
What happened to the Muggle Ted met in the St Mungo's waiting room?
Can you make a list like this:
Nigel age 11
and so forth so we can keep straight what child belongs to who and how old they are? And like possibly put it in your bio?
I know that's a lot of work, but ... pwease?
Author's Response: YAAAAAAAY, YESSS, I LOVE JORDAN SOOOO MUCH! And it makes me happy that other people do, too. And it really, really means a lot to me that this story's important to you... after so many years writing these characters, I feel like they're kind of an important part of me.
The Muggle that Ted met in the waiting room... I didn't address what happens to him here, but if I ever DO write the story that takes place when Jordan and the rest of the gang are grown up (which I've actually fully plotted out), you'll see he plays quite an important role. Let's just say he doesn't QUITE live happily ever after and leave it at that.
Hmmm... the kids... here we go (this is the ages as of the end of the epilogue): Ted-Ivy: Rebekah Jane Lupin (age 19), Henry Charles Lupin (age 17). Emma-Tyrone: Antoinette Motts Thomas (aka Tony, age 15), Josephine Westley Thomas (aka Joey, age 13), Charlotte Rona Thomas (aka Charley, age 9). Jordan-Giorgi: Nigel Merlin Harry Potter (age 13). Haley and her husband: Lucian Elvis (aka Luc, age 16), Indigo Cordelia (age 15), Julian Atticus (aka Jules, age 13), Elektra Maeve and Dorian Mercutio (age 11). Ophidias-Ophelia: Omega Katharine Malfoy (age 13). Later in life, Ted and Ivy also end up adopting a little boy named Raphael, who is five when Henry is 17. Raphael's a werewolf whose parents abandoned him.
Ok,I have a post hogwarts story(which will probably only stay in my notebooks)
and Neville has a daughter in it and she is JUST LIKE CECILIA!Except,her name is Peyton and she's six.....
And about the QSQs...I nominated Ted for best Male OC and Haley for best Female OC.(Also,I nominated Voldy's Deathpants for best Humor,Long distance extendable ears for best ph,and P&PP for best NC romance...)I like your stories...
I presume that we find out in the next chap. that Ted's diabetic,right?
And you remember I said I'd be sticking to my predictions....yeah,well here's my new one:I think Hadrian Bellowes kills Ron,and Emma kills Hardrian.
~Sothern belles follow the Son~
Author's Response: Oh, wow, that's so cool! About Peyton, I mean. I love that name, too. Also the name "Billingsley Crawford Fox," but you didn't need to know that. Thank you SO MUCH for all of your nominations. I almost squeed with happiness when I saw them. Ooh, cool predictions... hehehe...
emember when I was at the Malfoys’ back in December, you went and tried to visit me, and mo
-If sge's starting to say 'Mom', the 'm' should be capitalized. This still goes for anytime parents are mentioned in that context whithout 'my' in front of it.
Oh, and I think Jordan wants to be a singer when he gets older, by the way.
I LEURVED this chapter- I thought it was very deep, and well written.
Will we ever hear the potato joke, fully? Or is it too dirty? ;)
Author's Response: You're right about the capitalization thing, and I am dummmmmm. I'm glad you liked the chapter, though! As for the potato joke, I never came up with the whole joke! It was from a roleplay my friend and I did when I was twelve, and my friend made it up, but it was only, "Professor Zabini should... and a potato?" We got the idea from a Monty Python sketch where this guy is reading a 'children's book' and then it starts to get dirty, so he flips a few pages, does a double take, and says, "...with a MELON?" So, no, there's no full potato joke. But I'm sure it'd be very dirty if there was one, I just can't think of anything inappropriate enough.
