The first thing you should know about me is that I am a Christian. I love God with my whole heart and I am eternally grateful to Him for sending His Son to die for me. If you have a problem with me about this or with Christians in general, feel free to keep your opinions to yourself because I KNOW MY GOD IS REAL AND NOTHING WILL CHANGE HOW I FEEL.
I'm Wes. I'm from the southern region of the US.
I love movies. Especially Hallmark movies. Sap is bomb. :)
I love to read. Among my favorite books (beside Harry Potter) are:
The Note -- Angela Hunt
The Homelanders Series -- Andrew Klavan
A Corner of the Universe -- Ann M Martin
Double Identities -- Margaret Peterson Haddix
The Hunger Games series -- Suzanne Collins
My favorite music is everything from country to Broadway.
My top 5 are probably:
1 Owl City
3 Alison Krauss
4 Brooks and Dunn
5 Kellie Pickler
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.
“No,” he replied staunchly, with a defiant tilt of his chin. “Of course not.” His voice cracked, and suddenly, he lost control, great shuddering sobs wracking his body. “I’m bloody terrified,” he croaked, burying his head in his wife’s shoulder.
-Mmn. This sounds a lot like the 'movie Ron' in my mind then the Ron we see in the books.
Thomas,” Zabini said in a dangerously soft voice. “You have…” his voice cut off, and his face froze, and he suddenly exclaimed, “EUREKA!”
-Because a potato is the next ingredient in a potion he's making? *eyebrow wiggle*
This chapter was exteremely confusing. Jordan's telemeny was told to where you couldn't understand exactly what he was doing- almost as if Jordan didn't know himself.
You might simply be trying to show how confused Jordan is, if so forgive Wes. :)
I liked this chapter, nothing W00T-ful, but it was good.
My internet has been down for 5 days (WAAAH), so I'm trying to get caught up on my reviewing business.
I will be so sad once this story ends! It's become a big part of my reviewing style, and has really involved me with the characters.
You have brought me a lot of laughter with this story and it has really helped me with my own writing.
Never stop writing, Schmergo. You are truly a wonderful author.
Author's Response: I think in a lot of ways, it sounds more like movie Ron because he's 'wimping out.' I was almost trying to do the opposite-- showing Ron cracking to the point where he admits how upset he is, which is supposed to be a big deal. I forgot about movie Ron lessening the impact of that. ^_^ AND JORDAN'S BIT WAS SO CONFUSING. That's why I didn't like this chapter. I couldn't express in words what I imagined it was like. No matter how many times I revised it, it just wasn't happening. But I guess Jordan can't describe it in words, either. :--(
I am going to be so sad once I get the final chapter up, too! Thank you so much for all of your wonderful reviews, Wes. I think the part that meant the most to me is that you got really involved with the characters, because in writing these stories, I have gotten so ridiculously attached to mah protagonists!
Schmergo, I'm going to have to be a bit of a meanie, I'm afraid.
During the scene with Ted and Lupin, they seemed to talk in circles.
Lupin stated his point, and Ted asked what had already been phrased and....
But that may be you trying to show how freaked out Ted is about the whole situation. If that's the case, don't hate me!
Tyrone and Emma are so IRKSOME! Just date, yot evil people, date!
This chapter was....my least favorite so far.
Once again, don't hate me please. I don't try to offend.
Hiiii! I've waited itchily for your return!
Wes who hopes she didn't offend Madame The_Impaler!
Author's Response: Hey, I don't mind meanie reviews. I felt this chapter needed a meanie review. I edited and edited it, and drafted and drafted it, and just couldn't get it to accomplish what I wanted it to. With the Ted scene, I just didn't want it to be one of those things like, "Hey, this is life changing." "Cool, thanks, bye." You know-- where people get used to something really, really quickly that should have more of an impact? But I just couldn't figure out how to write it properly. That's why I took so long to update! I'm not offended at all.
Ted certainly lacked grace, and Ivy was nervous and shy by nature, but simply swaying together, they looked as natural as a pair of trees waving in the wind.
-Okay... oddish, but cute...
Here eyes were bright and her cheeks were flushed from the dancing. As the song ended, she happened to glance over
-'Here' should be her.
cause you and e both know
-I'm not sure what the 'e' is supposed to be, but it's not right the way it is.
“Und now,” the boy whispered in her ear in a strange little accent, “ve dahnce.”
-MY. FAVORITE. LINE.
This was a very good chapter! It fleshed the characters out very well and left you with vague mysteries on each one.
Wow, you're nearly seventeen! You'll always be just turned sixteen! to me, because that's the first time I read your profile!
I was so proud of Voldy's Deathpants (sorry, I'm not sure how to do bold) and Jordan!
You were very deserving.
"He is not here for He is risen...." ----Happy Easter!
Author's Response: Ha, thank you so much! You, Wes, are my first reviewer for this chappie! And I'm so happy about the Quicksilver Quilllls... Yeah, it'll be weird to be seventeen. I feel like I've been sixteen forever. Tyrone is a cutie...
OH.MAH.GAWSSSH! Ted?!? *sigh*
I actually like the way it turned out though, nice and violent (hehe)
So...when are we going to get our death? I'm braced and ready!
Author's Response: Thanksssss! There is some deaaaath in one or two chapters.
The first Potter-y part was good.
The Malfoy part shocked me.
It was alot to take in one chapter, to be honest.
Now we know why Ivy's so,....ummm...reserved.
*Also, I just submitted my first story! *FINGERS CROSSED!*
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! AND BEST WISHES FOR YOUR STORY!!!! Let me know how it does.
This chapter hit home with me.
I have been supporting someone dear to me through the loss of someone they love, and the way Ted, who had always been a pillar for Ivy, now had to lean on her.
This has how the realtionship with the person and I has been and you captured the emotions beautifully.
I read this awhile ago, but I couldn't even find words to describe how I felt.
Thank you, so much, for this chapter.
I cried the whole time, you have absolutely no idea what this meant to me.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for this beautiful review. And I'm incredibly grateful that you think I handled this well, because I don't have any experience with that sort of situation myself, and I hoped I'd be able to convey it.
THIS STORY IS AWESOME!UPDATE SOON!!!!!
Author's Response: THANKS SO MUCH! MY CAPSLOCK GETS STUCK SOMETIMES TOO! And yes, I'll definitely update. :)
This is a great story and I love how Hugo just like your average kid!Update soon!
I agree with inspirations,they might've been too old,but this was written believably.
PLEASE ADD MORE!!!*puppy dog face*
Author's Response: Thank you for reading and the review. :) Right now, I'll not make it a chaptered. I'm bugged by other plot bunnies. <.< lol
Great story!Lily is how imagined her to be!
The beetles in the soup....I can only imagine how much Fred would have loved to have a tribute like that!
Author's Response: Haha you liked the beetles in the soup too? I think that that was one of the only small things I slipped in which was there in the first draft and which has stayed there the whole way through. Thanks so much for the review!
This is really a good story!Are Kasia's other adventures gonna be different chapters in this story,or be one-shots?
~Southern belles follow the Son~
Author's Response: The story is going to continue as chapters. There is quite a bit of her story left to tell. Thank you for yoru review. I am working on more of her story and it will soon be posted. Terri
Oh,this was so sweet!This shows the more sisterly side of Petunia that when she read her sister's diary!
Is this a one-shot?
~Southern belles follow the son~
Author's Response: Thanks so much! Yes, this is a one-shot! And I'm glad you liked it! ~margaret~
Beautiful story!But,shouldn't this be in the romance category?
~Southern belles follow the Son~
That was an interesting take.New,fresh.Continue!I wanna know what happlens!
Author's Response: Thank you for reading this story. I'm so glad you found it new and fresh. I really appreciate the review, and I do hope to continue it someday. Thanks again! ~Gina :)
every five years
I'm very ready for the tournament to start, because it's a tad uneventful thus far.
It's still quite enjoyable, just not action-y.
Author's Response: Heya Wes! The Tournament is gonna start soon...just not within the next couple of chapter. Of course, there are gonna be classes, the choosing of the champions, then the big shock--oops, I'm telling everything, aren't I? Hehe... and just 7.33?? Aww.....*sniffs*. lol. See ya! Miss you on the forums, man, where are you?? ---Nadia
“Ah, Hagrid,” he said pleasantly. His voice was quite deep and strong. “The new students. Thanks a lot. You can go up to the feast if you wish. I’ll take it from here.”
-Neville is all business up until students, then he slips to casual. This is awkward
Nice chapter, good job on Al's shock after Scorpius's sorting!
I miss you guys on the forums!
Author's Response: WES!!! Thanks for reviewing!!! Thanks a lot for the nitpick! Glad you liked the sorting, there's more fun to come! LOL. I miss you guys too........ I can't come on the forums nowadays, 'net time is limited for me. Stupid exams...*grumbles*. LOLLLLL! C YA!!!!---Nadia
When Haley was singing 'God Rest Ye Merry Hippogriffs', you had a 'e' on the end of 'Merry'.
Anyway, I screamed bloody blue murder when I came to the Giorgi/Jordan part.
My dad asked me if I wrote this story that I was reading.
I told him my writing-role-model wrote it.
He just walked away.
He walks away from all things Harry Potter.
Tyrone was fluffy in this story!
I was really excited when I read the 'God Rest Ye Merry Hippogriffs' thing. I love that song sooo much.
My story got rejected! *cries from the lasting pain*
It was too short and cheesy, so I'm working on a Marauder story and a Dumbledore one-shot!
Wes...who is a girl!
Author's Response: Hey, thank you, Wes! I put the 'e' on the end of "Merrye" to make it seem like Old English, but you're not the first to nitpick that, so I guess my point didn't come across well. Oh, and thank you so much for the LOVELY, LOVELY compliment about being your 'writing role model!' You're making me blush here! And yes, Tyrone was so fluffy, but I had so much fun.
Oooh, I'm sorry about your story being rejected. *Gives you Consolation Internet Pumpkin Bread* I was a member of MNFF for almost a year before my first story got accepted... I think I have more rejections than anyone else on MNFF. (I still get rejected all the time, too.) But keep trying!!!
I examined my body, and then almost vomited up whatever I had eaten last.
-This sentence sounds as though a small child is talking. I would cut it off, starting at "whatever."
My life had just spiraled down the loo.
Again, this sounds as though a small child is speaking. As Romilda is shown to be a very controlling person, 'out of control' would suit her more.
and my middle fingers were a tad longer than I’d remembered.
-Are you actually speaking of the finger or the nail? If you are talking about the nails, then, it's normal.
But if the finger itself, it's a tad weird. You might want to say 'all my fingers' or cut that out completely.
Light was good.
-What kind of 'light' are you talking about? Are you saying light was good in the situation, or just saying light in itself was good?
The language was unnecessary.
But all of that was just me. :)
It was dark again.
-I like this sentence. It shows how dark Romilda's world is truly becoming, and how it will always seem so dark. Good description.
This story was very well written. Romilda didn't venture too far out of character, and you portrayed her as what she is: a lonely teenager.
Excellent story! Write more, please.
It would make a brilliant chaptered fic.
I now ship Romilda/Geoffery.
Wes....who is a girl.
Author's Response: Okay, I was researching lycanthropy, and the long middle finger-thing was a common symptom. I know it doesn't really fit and it wasn't in the books, but it was interesting, so I added it in. 'Light was good.'-Romilda is a bit freaked out about the message on the bedpost, and in the suspense, she wasn't thinking straight. Most teenage girls do such. (So yeah, in the situation.) I'm glad you liked the story, though. I wrote the first rough drafts of it about two years ago. The dream was the most fun to write, definitely. (Personally, my dreams never make any sense.) I always pictured Geoffrey as thirty or forty years old... Creepy, but whatever. Thanks for reviewing! -Halle
It wasn’t that he didn’t love Astoria – he did.
He just wasn’t sure he could love a child.
Draco Malfoy was never one for fathering. Little kids disgusted him; babies horrified him. And yet, Astoria is pregnant. As it comes down to the final hours, he is torn between his love for his wife and his contempt for a small blonde one. Is Draco a man of his head or his heart?
The baby he didn’t want, causing the one thing in the world he did love pain.
-I'm fairly sure there should be a comma after 'love'.
Slap! She’s in pain. She needs me. I want to go to her. Slap! It’s that – that thing! Do you really want to see it? Slap! I love Astoria. Slap! Do you want to watch her go through all that pain and then look at it like it’s the only thing that matters in the world? Slap! Astoria – she’s screaming again. Slap! Because of that awful, wretched, life-destroying – Slap! Astoria!
-I think what wasn't in parentheses should've been, and vice versa. I think it makes it flow better.
Draco didn’t hear anything she said, except for the last two words. Your son. Your son. Your son. My son. Before, the baby had always been just that – “the baby”. No gender, no one that it belonged to. Just “the baby” or “it”. And now, this woman, with her burning eyes and harsh tone, had gendered it and given it a family.
-I LOVE this line! It's my favorite!
This was a wonderful story, one of the VERY few I've seen that characterizes Draco well.
Good job, Mere! I miss all ya'll on the Forums.
This was a sweet, elegantly told story.
It showed how Sirius did not always hate his family, which is how I imagined it.
It showed, subtly, how times were going to be bad, how there would be hate.
Well told; well written!
Author's Response: Thank you, I'm so glad you enjoyed it!
