I love to read, listen to music, and hang out with my boyfriend and roommates. I'm a college senior working on my English/Theology undergrad degree, as well as my English Literature MA degree. My favorite author is Susan Cooper, though I'm a huge HP fan, of course!
Summary: Mischief happens; for sixth-year Gryffindor, Andran Audierus, it's somewhat expected. Clumsiness also happens, and for New student Marti Owlsten, it's more of a way of life. Put these two together, and they may end up in over their heads in trouble... and toothpaste. Insults, ransom notes, magical dares, pranks... will they make it to their seventh year in one piece?
**This is a post-HP7 fic, by about ten to fifteen years... but that doesn't mean their won't be familiar faces. Lots of humor, butn also a good plot line, too**
I'm loving the story so far. It's great having a story in the same world, but having different characters (although I love the back story of Hermione and Ron--you should add to that one). As for for ships . . . I'm torn. Andy is a funny guy, but the love-hate relationship between him and Marti may be just a bit too cliche-ish (their fights are hilarious, though). I'd have to go with Marti and Clay. I'm glad you finally put him into the story. He seems like a great character and good for Marti. I don't know that I'd want an Andy/Zinny 'ship either. Once again, a bit too expected. But hey, I'm just a fascinated and involved reader, not the author! I can't wait to read more. Good luck in writing.
Author's Response: Excellent Review! I love long reviews... though, hey, I don't complain about short ones, either. Thanks for the input... a/m:19, a/z:9, z/c:5, m/c:8, a/mc:1
Summary: Mary Sue Bloomwood is one of the two famous unidentified Gryffindor girls, who is planning her revenge for having been, along with her best friend, Emma Connors, so plainly ignored by the Wonder Trio for the past six years. But is she really the mind behind all the madness going on at Hogwarts? Laughs are guaranteed!
That last chapter especially was hilarious. I loved Ginny coming out and yelling at everyone, then turning around and being sweet when Harry asked her out. I was cracking up.
Author's Response: I'm really glad you liked it!! The third chappie was my favorite one, too... Did you expect it was Ginny behind everything? Anyway, thanks for the review!!
Summary: Ever wondered how Lily and James came to be the bickering pair Harry espied in the Pensieve? And how they had then become the happy and loving couple Harry has heard about?
Of course she didn't hate him upon seeing him, and clearly he hadn't merely walked up to her, an irritatingly smooth talking eleven-year-old. No, this is their real journey -- from their very first encounter to their very first kiss.
I like your version of how Lily and James came to be such polar opposites. Most stories just show James being annoying in general, but I like how you made it more personal. James not meaning to do anything, but still managing it--that's a guy for ya! Thanks for the good read. :-)
Summary: Book Two in the 'Lily' series, Nuttier Than A Fruitcake, portrays Lily's fifth year at Hogwarts, a time filled with hormones, confusion, and of course, run ins with the ever obnoxious, James Potter.
I love your Lily series. Your writing has really improved with this set. Your characters seem real. I love the voice you've given Lily--her outlook really cracks me up. Keep it up. I can't WAIT to read more! :-)
