I AM ANNA!
I LIVE IN AUSTRAAAALIA.
I like reading, writing, doing role-plays, playing the guitar and eating soup.
All at the same time.
I am more than slightly obsessed with Neil Cicierega, Colin Firth,
Michael Ball, the Discworld series and classic novels written by such names as Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters and Victor Hugo.
I quite like science-fiction novels, too. And fantasy novels...
I like to knit. Knitting is an immensely relaxing hobby.
I also have a strange addiction to Orange flavoured tictacs.
Freshness in 2 calories!
I found a box of tictacs in Target the other day, and it was THREE TIMES THE SIZE OF A NORMAL PACKET OF TICTACS!
I ate the whole thing in an hour...
I absolutely adore musical theatre, and secretly sing along to my favourites out in my garage when I think no-one is listening.
Yes, my life is that sad.
I have a crazy Math teacher who is obsessed with failing me because I write fanfiction in my Math book instead of actually doing the Math work assigned.
I don't actually publish my fanfiction, because it's mainly full of ninjas and obscene things like that.
If you haven't noticed already, I get off topic quite quickly. This doesn't happen when I'm verbally talking, but it happens quite often when I'm typing.
I have two cats that like to sabotage me while I'm on the computer by sitting on the keyboard right in my line of vision of the screen.
I also enjoy writing pointless bio's on sites like these, because half the information I write in them is pointless, and no-one ever reads them.
If you do ever end up reading this, good for you. You have just wasted at least 5 minutes of your life.
I apologize for any inconveniences I may have caused.
Have a nice day!
Isn't Ellie's mother named Jane?
And Harry's uncle married a woman named Jane, and had a daughter named Elizabeth who is two and a half years older than him?
So Ellie is Harry's cousin... but she said that they died six months before Harry's parents...?
Good fic, though. :D
You should incorporate more James/Peter romance. They're good for each other. xD
Merry Christmas, padfootsgirl.
Author's Response: Lol! I feel a rarepair coming on... lol joking! I wonder if there are any James/Peter fics out there, hmm. Merry Christmas to you too :D.
Wow. It's been a while since I've read this story, but needless to say, it's definitely one of my favourites and has been for a while.
I really love he way you write the characters, and the subtle climaxes in the story that keep me wanting more. And considering the last update was a while ago, I'm still hanging out for a new chapter or two.
I don't know how you do it, but you make me miss the characters. You make me jealous of the friendship that they have together, and I wish that I was a part of that. I feel like I know them so well, and when they're not around, there's something missing. There's some damn fine writing going on if you can make that happen.
I hope school is going well for you, and that you'll return to these guys someday.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
This chapter was the best christmas present ever!
Can you pleeeease try update before Christmas? ;D
Author's Response: Yay! Merry Christmas lol. Glad you liked your present :D
NOOOO. NO NO NO NO NO!
You tempted us all with the preview of the chapter, with us all anticipating that something would happen! They're supposed to get together! Aaargh.
Moving on from the dissapointment...
The story is absolutley awesome. I've been reading since you first published it. :D
Please please please pleeease update soon.
Author's Response: Hehehe! I know, aren't I evil? Awww, thank you! It's great to see that you've stuck with me for so long :D.
OH MY GOODNESS.
This chapter just made my day.
It took a while to get Hayley and Remus together, but it was definitely worth it in the end. They make such a good pair.
I really like the way you've developed Debbie as a character. You just love to hate her. The way you write about her makes you really feel the hate and jealousy that Kirsty feels.
All in all, a very well written chapter.
Just make sure the gap between updates isn't too long this time. I was really starting to miss this story. ;)
That was really nice. ;)
It made me feel kind of melancholy.
You've got really great poetry skills!
Fortunately, I am home alone. And so, I have turned up my Wicked soundtrack uberly loud and am now singing along to it with your lyrics.
Especially in 'No One Mourns the Wicked' when in the soundtrack Glinda's singing, and in your lyrics it's Kingsley...
'Fellow Order members—
Let us be glad
Let us be grateful
Let’s party hardy now since goodness could subdue
The wicked workings of You Know Who!'
It's hilarious listening/reading Kingsley sing soprano.
I've read this spoof before, but that was AGES ago. Sot his time, I decided to read it while listening to the soundtrack and it's FANTASTIC!
I love it. It's awesomley awesome-tastic.
'(He tries to kill Harry and, ironically, asplodes.) '
Ahh. That made me laugh.
I've got no idea why, but it did.
Author's Response: Dude, thank you so much! I don't get many reviews for this. And DUDE, I love the idea of Kingsley singing soprano. I never even thought of that! And... I've always seen what happened to Voldemorty as definitely being 'asploding,' something entirely different from exploding.
Dude. That was totally EPIC!
I'm going to see Wicked next week, so I'm veeery excited. I'll probably be singing along in my head with your lyrics.
I love your version of 'For Good'. Listening to it with the soundtrack is hilarious, because the music is all peaceful as Elphie and Galinda say their goodbyes, but Harry and Voldiekins are saying the most hilarious insults.
'Like a bear that rips your face off on a hike through the wood.'
That was probably my favorite line.
This review probably isn't as crazy as my others, and for once, it's actually about the thing I'm reviewing for. O_o
I love your other musical spoofs, too. They're uberly fantastic.
Author's Response: Why, thank you! 'Epic' is a word I've always wanted to be complimented with! And it's very, very cool that you're going to see Wicked-- I've never seen it live, really. And... I'm so glad you liked that line, becuase that's one of my favourites as well.
YAAAY! AN UPDATE!
Except I'm angry, because I wasn't notified of the update via e-mail in which I normally am for updates to my favourite fics!
Anyway. I shall stop ranting an continue with my review.
w00t! Maison de Lunes is my favourite song from Beauty and the Beast. And Beauty and the Beast just happens to be my favourite Disney movie. But it's not my favourite musical. But I do happen to love Terrance Mann as the Beast...
I'M SORRY! I really need to stop ranting and continue with my review. And I've only just finished reading Hayley's Show Tune Du Jour.
HA! The 'Super Motts' thing made me laugh so hard. but that also might be because of the fact that I've just eaten a whole packet of orange flavoured tictacs... and they tend to make me go crazy.
YES! Another P&P summary! And a long one, too!
Bilbo Collins returns! I love that guy.
'Oh, and Mr. Bingley’s sisters kept hanging around talking smack about Mr. Wickham, saying vaguely insulting things about his family background and his romantic history and his sideburns.'
I HATE THEM! But I love Mr. Wickham's sideburns. *squee*
Author's Response: NOVAAA! Hello there! Well, "Maison des Lunes" is a pretty flippin' amazing song, although my favourites are "Mob Song" and "If I Can't Love Her." But I love any song that has Gaston in it, because he's hilarious. And yes, Terrence Mann is absolutely MAGNIFICENT, even though he delivers his lines in a funny way. "Allright... allright...allright... NNNNAAAAAOOOOW!"
I love Super Motts. And it is real... Also, you are probably the only person in the world who likes Bilbo Collins! ^_^
Before I start reading the chapter (which I am DYING to do) I thought I would get all of my off-topicness out of my system.
I recently read a novel that goes by the name of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. It is a wonderful creation that you would most likely be interested in (if you haven't read it already...).
This will have to be a really quick review, seeing as I have to get off the computer. ( I was told to get off 10 minutes ago... Woops).
Ted's letter was so unbelievable sappy and it made me go 'awwww'.
Damn, I forgot how much I love Tyrone - his obsession with muggle movies is the best.
I also love your P&P summaries SO MUCH.
HA! 'old biddies'.
My mum works in a retirement village and that's what she calls them. it's adorable.
Any chance of a quicker update this time? ;D
Author's Response: Nova, I just read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, too! I thought it was amazing, though I wish some of the characters were better fleshed-out... it seems like all of their actual traits are replaced by zombie-hunting warrior skills. I loved the Charlotte Lucas subplot, though.
Thanks for the review-- I will definitely update sooner, since I have up to chapter 11 saved on my computer!
Oh my gosh! Les Miserables reference!
“Lamarque is ill and fading fast! We have to visit him in the hospital before they pull the plug on his life support!"
Me being a Musical theatre nut, I squeed at this line.
With Pride and Prejudice being my favourite book of all time, I absolutley love the summary. Although I do love Mr. Darcy, I fully agree that he is TOTALLY EMO.
Love your work, Schmergo. Hilarity, and Musical Theatre make any story great. And cats called the Rum Tum Tugger. xD
Author's Response: Dude, it's SOOO cool to find a Les Miserables fan on here! Have you read my Les Miserables spoof, called "Lord Voldemort, The Musical?" Les Mis is basically my favourite thing ever. And thank you so much for your lovely review!
OH MY GOD. I want those action figures. xD
Also I think Emma is being unfair by saying that Michael Ball jumps around stage making stupid faces. But I agree that he does make everything sound overly cheesy. But that's okay. Because he's a fantastic singer, and is the best Marius from Les Miserables in the world.
Continuing on from my endless droning about how awesome Michael Ball is...
The Tyrone song is awesome!
Please update soon. I want more P&P Summaries!
Author's Response: Hahaha, thank you! And action figures = YES PLEASE! He does jump around making stupid faces, though-- in a really cute adorable way, but if you search any up-tempo song like "Vaults of Heaven" or "Sit Down," he's going nuts. And if you screen-cap any of his videos, the faces are hilarious. ^_^ But Michael Ball is my favourite human, so I say that in a good way.
:D Yay for Ophidias!
Thanks for another awesome chapter.
Merry Christmas, Schmergo!
Author's Response: Awww! *Hugs* Thank you! And it's so funny getting these "Yay for Ophidias" reviews! When "The Five" first came out, everyone was like "I HATE OPHIDIAS!" And I just responded cryptically, 'just wait till book three!'
Long time, no review!
Jeez! Long hiatus?
I thought you DIED!
But you've come back!
Hopefully not as a zombie... O_o
Nawrrr! Poor Teddy. Don't you just want to pick him up and give him a hug? *squee*
AAAH! WAKE UP, JOR-JUMS! You can't let Emma die!
It's all up to you, Schmergo! You have to wake Jordan up and save Emma!
You must do so before the eleventh minute of the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the fourth month... Otherwise she'll never get to see Westley again, and that would be terrible.
Because Westley and his mustache are just so cool.
But you know who's even cooler?
His name makes me squee.
QUICK! BACK TO THE STORY!
Aaagh. I hate Tyrone's un-mustache.
There's this guy in my Math class who has an un-mustache, and it's REALLY annoying. I just want to go up with a razor and chop it offff...
NOVA STRIKES AGAIN WITH HER LAME REVIEWS!
That's all, folks.
Author's Response: NOVAAAA! (I actually love your wacky reviews!) And speaking of zombies... yesterday, my friends and I wrote a brilliant story that is about the musical West Side Story... and TOILET DWELLING SPACE ZOMBIES! But I love, love, love Teddy, and I feel bad when I do mean things to him. But YES! I love Humperdinck, and I love Chris Sarandon, and I love his poofy costumes!
There is this dude in my Sunday school class who has this horrible unmustache, but he's the OPPOSITE of Tyrone. Whenever anyone mentions his mustache, he says, "What mustache?"
I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO ACCESS MY E-MAIL FOR A FEW DAYS SO I DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE UPDAAATTEEE.
So, here I go.
I like the idea of them going back in time to the final battle. It's a really smart idea that adds a lot of excitement. I would never have thought of that... I probably would have been like - "duuhh... lets kill them off with machetes and ninjas! *guffaw".
I love Ted's last name. Windowtoadspoon? Genius.
Also, that little Remus/Ted scene was very cute.
BAHAHA Hayley is awesome. I can totally imagine Hayley going around knocking on peoples doors in a Girl Guides uniform and trying to sell them cookies.
OH MY GOSH. Hayley can't die! D:
It does say in the story description that there would be character death, but HAYLEY? (ack, I just typed Haykey...) Noooo!
Or maybe she's not actually dead. Maybe she just broke several bones from the fall...
AGH, DAMN CLIFFHANGERS!
Oh well. I'm off to read PPJP.
Author's Response: I dunno, I prefer your idea of killing off Bellowes with machetes and ninjas. Get Lady Catherine and company to do it. But the Ted Windowtoadspoon thing is inspired by the Emperor's New SChool, where Kuzco makes up a best friend (since nobody likes him and he had to write a report on his best friend) named Brad Bowlllaama, since he saw a bowl and a llama in front of him... I don't know, for some reason, I thought it was hilarious.
Every story needs a little touch of cheesiness and I think that chapter was definitely it.
Gaaah, I wish I could got o Hogwarts just so I could meet these guys. They're just so cool.
Haha, I love Hayley and Anatoly's project.
Yesterday I went to a friend's house to do a project for school where we had to create a commercial that would promote the return of cassette tapes. The whole time we were writing the script, we were listening to 'The Beatles - Past Masters' on cassette. It was pretty cool. Then we used 'All You Need Is Love' for the credits, but whenever the word 'love' came up in the song we would replace it with 'cassette'.
Yeah, we're that cool.
I feel so sorry for Jorjums.
You did a great job at inserting just the right amounts of humor and emotion in exactly the right places throughout the whole chapter. Especially in the whole school singalong when Ophidias joined in.
I think I almost shed a tear!
BUT I DIDN'T BECAUSE I'M TOO MANLY.
Except for the fact that I'm not male... O_o
I also congratulate you on updating the story so quickly. I missed having regular updates.
I have a test for you.
Firstly, you must find... A SHRUBBERY.
Then, when you have found the shrubbery, you must cut down the mightiest tree in the forest WITH A HERRING.
Then, if you have time, you must attempt to update the story.
If I don't get hunted down and killed by Monty Python for stealing part of their sketch in the near future, I expect you will be hearing from me again soon.
Author's Response: Nova, I just need to tell you that I was reading your bio thing, and my jaw just DROPPED because it's me to a t (except for the whole living in Australia thing). Go Neil Cicierega and Michael Ball, and math STINKS. I'm not even taking math next year (hooray for senior year and already having four math credits!)
Awww, I feel really happy when I read that other people besides me feel attached to my characters. I wuv them, and I like it when readers do, too. And that project sounds incredibly cool-- how on earth did you have the time to change 'love' to 'casettes?' That would take me forever! I did my own version of "Like A Boss" about Chester A. Arthur, but that was much less ambitious.
I'm glad that you feel I did a good job mixing humor and serious stuff, because I am at heart a very silly person, and all that pathos is difficult for me sometimes! But I promise I will update very soon. Thanks so much for reading and reviewing!
That chapter was amaaaazing.
It flowed really well, even though there were so many different elements and emotions throughout it.
I was sad to hear that Theo and November died. I was really starting to like Theo, thanks to your other stories he stars in.
I wasn't expecting the whole ''Charybdis-is-Theodore-and-November-Nott's-daughter'' thing.
Wow. It makes you feel sorry for the girl, having her parents die and that.
I'm glad that Hayley was 'profound' for once.
I'm guessing that whole speech was referring to Anatoly and how he's not a Slytherin stereotype?
“Someone from the future,” Merlin replied, shrugging.
I am curious.
When Merlin says this in dear Jor-jums' vision, who is the person from the future he's referring to?
Now I am off to check out your musical spoofs!
Author's Response: Hellloooa there, Nova! I am really glad that you liked this chapter. I felt sad killing Theo and November, too, but I had to give some reason as to why Charybdis wasn't awesome like them! (I invented her before I wrote those stories... she had a brief appearance in the first book). Haley's speech was kind of referring to Anatoly, but it was mostly talking about how she doesn't believe in stereotypes-- not only did she learn a lot during her inter-house Unity project, but she's a living example of how not all stereotypes are true. Haley is silly and hyper, but she's not a ditz-- she's smart, brave, creative, and a great friend.
Merlin was quoting William Shakespeare! I think that quote is from "Twelfth Night." Humorously enough, the character that quote was originally said to, Malvolio, was a loser who was being used as a pawn for some prank, but taken out of context, it's a lovely sentiment.
YAY! I was actually informed of this update via e-mail this time, so I am happy.
But I'm also quite grumpy because I only just woke up...
''He often spoke like this, not with the articulate integrity of Jordan Potter but in sarcastic tones that made it clear he was only using his vocabulary for the purpose of humour.''
Ahh! I do the exact same thing. But most of the time I just end up confusing my friends; they aren't as intelligent as me.
Aaaaagh! I don't like Charybdis. Poor Anatoly! I love him. Hes not 'cute', but he's got a pretty awesome personality and sense of humor. *squee*.
I reckon Hayley and Anatoly should hook up. Wouldn't that be awesome?
I THINK IT WOOOOULD!
Gaaah. There's a cat on my keyboard.
I apologize. My review is absolutley pointless.
But I love the story, and would love it even more if you could get Jor-jums and Giorgi together.
THEY'RE JUST SO UTTERLY CUTE TOGETHER.
Author's Response: Nova, you just keep giving me these reviews, and they make me smiiile. Now, see when I use big words, I use 'em in a nerdy, Jordan-y way, not in a cool Anatolyish way. I'm a dorkface! ^_^ I'm glad you wuv Anatoly. I was worried that some people wouldn't... but I love him very much. Hehehe. And... some fun ships happen in this story and Pride and Pre-Juiced Plums, but that's all I'm gonna say for now.
I forgot to add in my past couple of reviews that I have a Facebook page!
So if you'd like to be friends on Facebook, that's great, and I won't be mortally wounded if you don't want to be. xD
This chapter was really well written. The whole thing flowed exceptionally well.
The writing style and the language you used in the orchard scene seemed more mature than your usual style. It fit really nicely with the whole grandness of Malfoy Manor and the book Ivy was reading.
I don't know if that was on purpose or not, but it was cool anyway! :D
I have a few minor nitpicks:
“I didn’t mean to scare you. I was sitting up here, and you came, and I thought you knew I here..."
Obviously there should be a 'was' between the words 'I' and 'Here'.
This one's very minor. It happens to everyone.
Pansy laughed nervously. “Ophidias, I—”
“I thought I said to shut up!” He narrowed his eyes in the contemptuous, threatening expression that he’d once used on Gryffindors and Muggle-borns not too long before.
A more commanding way of saying
"I thought I said to shut up!" would be
"I thought I told you to shut up!"
The way you've written it is perfectly acceptable, thoughhh. ^_^
Overall, a really great chapter!
Oh, and is Pride and Pre-Juiced Plums going to be updated any time soon? It's been a while and I miss it. ):
Author's Response: Hey there, Nova! I would love to be facebook friends. Just send me a message with your real name or a URL, and I'll give you mine! And I'm so glad that you liked this chapter! I also felt like the writing style was different, and I think it was because the Malfoy Manor is a much more old-fashioned than the rest of the... world I'm writing about. And I hate typos, bleeeeeeh. By the way, Pride and Prejuiced Plums should be updated very soon. I've already written three new chapters. I just don't have the time to format it. Expect it within the next two weeks, though!
