Thanking EVERYBODY EVER for the runner-up QSQ given to The Cause. Honestly. It was amazing. Both Marty and I thank you! (I'm sure Remus would as well, but I can't claim ownership of him). I would put the banner up but for some reason it's not working (stupid HTML).

HELLO to my bestest friend Chomione, you're truly the best, and hi to my brother CheeseKing, too.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy my fics! I would reccomend the later ones; I only keep the early stuff because I can't bear to delete it. However, I can't bear to read it, either, but maybe you'll have some more luck. =)
Summary: August Worthington, an ordinary Muggle boy, is obsessed with the Harry Potter series and insists that the stories they describe are real. His parents are trying to convince him they're not, but maybe August isn't that ordinary a boy after all...
Aw, that's so sweet. I love the name August for a boy, it's really interesting. Although it made me smile that his sister has such a normal name like "Susan". I hope you keep writing more stories, because I think you could get really good! And I liked this. The children insisting they believed in something that the parents just found strange was adorable. I guess the secrets you hinted at were that he had been showing signs of magic or something?
Anyway. Nice job.
PS: Didn't I tell you I'd get round to it eventually? :D
Author's Response: hey...thanks a lot for taking the time... :-) i once found a character named August in a book i read long ago(his full name was August August!) and since then always wanted to write about someone with that name. maybe i especially liked it bcoz i was born in August. i really wanna write more...but although i find it quite easy to write, i just can't come up with a good plot...n when i started writing more about August, like when he goes to Hogwarts and makes friends, i found it really hard to keep the events un-Potterish! and yeah...u got it right about the secrets! :-D
Summary: Professor Granger deals with a pair of students who have inherited a knack for trouble...
This was great! I loved it! Yay! I really liked the comparison of the formal letters to the little notes - hilarious!
Author's Response: Glad you liked it-I had a ball writing it. Thanks much- Daisy
Summary: The Marauders are in their second year and it is a beautiful day. Of course James would want to play some Quidditch. But is Remus the athletic type?
This is just a little piece I wrote for Quidditch Tryouts on the MNFF Forums last fall. I see it as a companion piece to my larger fic, Moments of Bliss, a sort of missing scene, if you will.
=D I love this! It's so beautifully Remus, so perfect, I love it!
Also, I know that I struggle with writing the Quidditch scenes, so the way you kept it so interesting and exciting is something I very much look up to ... well done! I've not read Moments of Bliss (I'm too busy to read a fic as long as that right this minute, I've WAY too much homework) but this is a great stand alone fic anyway, and MoB is definitely on the list of things to read when I finally get some time, so ... great job!
Author's Response: Oh, dear! I\'m so sorry I didn\'t see this lovely review. This story hasn\'t seen much action in a while and I forget to look at it (even after I put up the cool banner Katie made for it). *embarrassed and ashamed*
I\'m really glad to know you enjoyed it. I am in the midst of struggling to write a sports themed segment of MoB and I\'m realizing why writing Quidditch is difficult. I\'m thrilled you think I pulled it off here, and hope I get so lucky with the scene I\'m writing now. I might have it (the chapter) finished by the time you get a chance to read it (MoB). *hides from MoB readers* I\'m glad to hear it is on your list and hope you enjoy it if and when you read it. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this little one shot and leave me such a nice review.
Summary: "Charlotte-Flower" has been writing to her mysterious ‘quill pal' for over a year, but she really doesn't know him at all. When he suggests that they meet, she has mixed feelings. Would they like each other? Hate one another? But the most important question: Who is he?
Aww, that was sweet! I liked it. I was just looking to see if you had any other fics as well as 'I dont do snogging', because ... I'm not sure, I was just pretty bored, I guess. And then I saw you had a one shot called "the power of the quill", and I knew I had to read it - I myself have a one shot called "the art of the quill", which also happens to be Marauder based ... cool, huh? Anyway, moving on from that, I loved this! It was so ... good! (lack of adjective syndrome, forgive me). And the thing about randomly thinking of it while trying to get to sleep made me laugh, too - that's exactly the story behind most of my fics! Scary, isn't it ...?
Author's Response: Wow, it\'s scary how alike our thinking is! I have another fiction that just grabbed ahold of my brain as I was getting out of bed the other morning. I wasn\'t even conscious yet, I think. ;) Leave a comment when (if) it is approved!! I\'d be interested in what you have to say about it. Thanks for your reviews!
Summary: What happens when a spell backfires; turning James, Sirius, Remus, and Peter into girls? Plz R&R.
Hey, this is pretty good. I'm already imagining what happens with them being girls, it sounds so funny ... v. intriguing, the thought of what they would do is hilarious, even in my mind. What year are they in?
Author's Response: They are in their 6th year. Thanks for the review.
Within the Marauder band of Merry Men, Sirius is the dashing Will Scarlet. Seventh year, his goal is not to rob the rich, but to help poor Robin woo Maid Lily, avoid sermons from Friar Moony, aid a rat in need, and win the love of a fair lady.
Nominated for a Quicksilver Quill for Best Romance- Non Canon.
*Chapter 30 is 'To Be Loved'*
Hey, I just wanted to say I've been reading this over the weekend, and I really like it (even if me-on-the-outside finds constant romance a little tedious, me-on-the-inside enjoys it).
The Marauders are incredibly truthfully written, I love all the scenes with them. You especially did well with Peter - I know from experiance he is hard to write in a good light, and your is probably the best portrayal of him I remember reading :D.
I also love the Robin Hood references, but those are for personal reasons involving my friends who don't know when a joke gets old ... but that's why I love them. I'm not saying what the joke is, but it involves the Prince of the Poor being my third alleged husband ... *laughs to self, and is probably regarded as mental by anyone reading this who isn't me or four of my closest friends*
Anyway ... I think your fic is great. Long, but great ;D. I look forward to an update, and am hopefully anticipating reading about Lucius being pummulled by what to him would appear to be thin air ... Go Sirius!
Author's Response: The Owl and the Pussy-Cat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat:
They took some honey,
and plenty of money
Wrapped up in a five-pound note.
It was either quote the nursery rhyme or Tom Jones \'What\'s New Pussycat?...whoa...whoa, whoa...\' (the whole song, which I would\'ve had to look up since I sure don\'t know it, heh.
Thank you for spending your valuable time reading my story! Is it raining where you are too? I want snow, not rain, but I won\'t whine, or be nosy and ask about your \'alleged\' polygamy, ;). The story will be 30 chapters, so it won\'t last much longer. I hope you enjoy it, and Lucius getting his face smashed next chap.
Oooh, another exciting chapter, I do say! I loved the "ROSMERTA!" at the end ... it was very dramatic.
Poor Sirius. I do feel bad for him. He's got such a twisted past ... Anyway, I look forward to the rest of this fic. And those one shots, too. :D Good job!
Author's Response: Sirius = drama, doesn\'t he? Gotta love him...I think it\'s in the guidelines. Must not submit fics to more than one cat, must love Sirius. :D
Summary: When Sirius passes through the veil, he ends up in the Realm of Dreams. He manages to wake up. But when he wakes up, it’s the 30th of October 1981. The past fourteen years have never happened. He has a chance. Will it all be for naught?
Note: The word count for the story is incorrect, it should read around 21096 words. I arrived at this amount by adding the word count for the individual chapters together.
Wow. Intriguing, and very well written. When are you planning on updating? I hope soon, it's a really great idea! Ooooh, I do hope they have a happy ending! I'm such a sucker for those.
Anyway, please update soon, because I really liked this - it was so interesting!
Summary: Lily Evans is confident yet unsure of her future. Who needs a boyfriend anyway when you've got awesome friends? But when James Potter finds a way into her mind and heart, slowly but surely, Lily finds what she missed in life. Love, loathing, friendships, and hardships are all components of this epic tale.
This is good. I like all of your characters - the five girls are all really different from each other, but they still fit, which is nice, and none of them are Mary-Sue's... I love pride and prejudice (I've only seen the movie, but I am TRYING to read the book ...) and I think this fits it without being too strict on the exact plot. You write really well.
Author's Response: Thank you!
Summary: Lily has a secret. Afraid of her secret being revealed, she locks herself away behind a mask of perfection. What will it take for her to realise no-one is perfect?
Wow! I was kinda thinking "woah, depressing" for the first part, but as soon as James turned up it was all okay again (I guess he has that affect on me as well as Lily, lol). And I really, really, really liked the second part on her wedding day. It was so wonderful! I loved it. For a first fanfic this was pretty good!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I think I\'ve improved a lot since I wrote this, but I\'m still really glad you enjoyed it. I may end up editing it in the future, because, though I\'m still fond of the idea, I think I could do a better job now. Thanks heaps for reviewing!
Friendship, Love, and Pranks: The Story of the Marauders by Padfoot is MINE
Rated: Professors [Reviews - 1181]
Summary: Chapter Thirty-Eight in Queue!
They say someday your life will flash before your eyes...
The Marauders. The name alone strikes fear into the hearts of teachers and makes girls swoon. Watch as Sirius, who has always kept his emotions locked up in a box, finally finds the girl that has its key; as James masterminds everything, except how to win over the girl of his dreams; as Remus finds love, but learns it's just as hard to keep it going, and as Peter tries to prove he's just as good as the other four, no matter what he has to do. They're unstoppable, and it's safe to say that once they're gone, Hogwarts will never be the same again.
...let's make ours worth watching.
“You do know that if you told him any of this, he’d probably have a seizure of joy, and then his head would explode?”
Genius, I tell you. Comedic genius. Also, the bit about Sirius teaching the kids how to swear made me laugh as well. So funny! I love these fics. They always made me laugh, not like some, that just make you depressed. It has a great, light hearted, fun feel to it, I love it.
Author's Response: Thanks! I can\'t write anything really angsty or depressing without getting really depressed myself, so I avoid writing that kind of stuff.
Exactly the right amount of fluff, actually. You wouldn't want to overdo it ... it was just right. =D
I love it all. Particularly James. And Sirius. And Remus. And Peter. And ... oh, okay, just about everybody.
Yay! Looking forward to the next chapter already!
Author's Response: Hehe...thanks! Glad you liked it, because I do sometimes have fluff overdose problems.
Cool, fun chapter. There were a couple of mistakes though, but only very early on, and easy to correct ... I would just give it another quick proof read if I were you.
My favourite part was Agie's last letter to Lily, with the kleptomaniac, and the sun cream (ha!) and pronouncing the "eh" (which made me laugh, as I am often one to say things like "Why don't you leave you thoughts in a review? Eh? Eh? Eh?". It's my upbringing. =D)
Generally a very fun chapter, although Lily did seem a little overly mean. Still, you can't blame her, and I look forward to the next one!
Author's Response: I know, there\'s one sentence in there riddled with typos. I will go fix it ASAP. I seriously almost ate it (sunscreen) when I was younger, but my mom caught me in time. I never ACTUALLY got to taste it, but I can\'t imagine it being that great (or non-toxic). Lily\'s definitely very mean in this one, but I think it\'s mostly because the only side of her we really see is the \"stuck with Petunia all summer\" side. She\'ll act a lot more in character come the next chapter.
Oooh ... I look forward to the cracking up bit. And a break from the flangst. Because it's good, but ... yeah. I'd rather be laughing than thinking "grrrr .... why does James have to be fictional???" Although whatever comes next may have the same effect.
By the way, before I forget, during the letter from Jeremy, there's a break with Lily's thoughts in it (something along the lines of "Oh yeah, I forgot we had that fight") but it's still in italics, so it looks like part of the letter ... which is kind of confusing.
Apart from that, I don't think I found anything wrong with this chapter ... except that Lily and James are still being stupid (and I meant that in the nicest way possible). Can't wait till seventh year, when they can officially be together (according to the books, I presume that's why they're not already).
Anyway, can't think of much else to say ... it wasn't a very long chapter, after all. And I loved the title ... again. Looking forward to numero 23!
Author's Response: I love writing funny stuff! Except...when I get inspiration at the wrong times. WHY does it always happen during chemistry? Everyone thinks I\'m a psychopath there, because I randomly crack up when we\'re talking about manometers, or something dull like that. (Which I have a test on, an now know NOTHING about.) Oh, oopsie. I forgot about that diaologue in between J\'s letter. All my HTML randomly went missing in this one, so I just stuck it back in for thoughts and letters. Didn\'t read it over... Yes, Lily and James get together 7th year, but I probaly would have held it off anyway, assuming Lily still hated James 5th year. It takes time to go from hate to love, or whatever they\'ve got going on now. Sorry they\'re not longer. These last few chapters have been like neverending writer\'s block for me, though. I think I\'m over it. Why DOES James have to be fictional?? :(
Hey, I just read this whole thing (over the last three days, stuff kept interrupting) and so I got the shock of my life when I went to click the 'next' link and NOTHING WAS THERE.
It was horrible.
I like this fic. Especially the chapter names, they're great! Expecially this one, "why don't you go find a parade and rain on it?" just made me laugh so much. But, yeah, I have a thing about chapter names and stuff, I just really like them ... so it was great to read a fic with some creative ones!
I kind of hope we see a lot more Remus / Amber next year. They deserve a lot more storyline, if you ask me ... but I like S/A and L/J too! Also, Peter should get a girlfriend, that would be hilarious ... but also kind of sweet. I mean, even though he doesn't deserve to live and everything, I think he was pretty innocent during Hogwarts, so maybe he should have a weeny bit of happiness.
I hope you update soon! I really enjoyed this! Expecially the amnesia chapters, because they were funny (once we knew she'd be all right, of course) and I think the whole Jaeger thing was one of the most fantastic things I've ever seen.
You know, you're right. This review box really is sexy. I have lots of them too, in my various fics! [yes, I know that was low, hinting for reviews when I'm reviewing someone else's fic ... but c'mon, you know how much they rock, right?]
Author's Response: You know what\'s even better than reviews? Realy, really LONG reviews! Shyeah... I keep trying to write R/A, I do, but everytime I do, it\'s always so SICKENINGLY SWEET that I gag and have to take it out. I even wrote one for this chapter that was all right, but I couldn\'t find a place to fit it. Grrr. So now it\'s on my Y!Notepad looking for a home. It\'ll probably be in chapter 22, I hope. Peter should have a girlfriend, too. Again, I haven\'t found a good place to put him in as anything other than a Marauder. He\'s just so bland. Then again, it\'s my fault for making him that way... I do have a lot of fun writing chapter titles...I basically just sit here, in front of a blank screen, running ideas through my head until I go, \"HAHAHA!!!\" Er....that\'s always the one I pick. You know what\'s funny? Before I started writing, I would just read, and I\'d always wonder hy people were so obsessed with reviews. I always said I\'d never be obsessed with them like everyone else. Now look at me, eh? Anyway....thanks so much for your long review, and I\'m glad you liked the story!
Summary: James has always been totally commited to Lily. So when he stands her up, she brushes it off. But when it happens a second time, she begins to grow suspicious. Is James Potter, the love of her life, cheating on her? Or does he have something else up his sleeve?
Aw ... sweet. I liked it, though it would have been nicer longer ... but that's just me. Anyway, since you left me a nice review for L.O.V.E, I thought I'd return the favour and read something of yours. This seemed cute. ^_^
It just makes you want to cry that it doesn't end as happily as it should have done, though ... poor Lily ... poor James ... *sniff*.
Author's Response: Wow, thanks for reviewing! You\'re an author I really admire, and I\'m so glad you liked this.
Summary: Lily's revelation for her true feelings towards James.
Aw, this is so sweet! I found myself on your profile somehow, and saw no one had reviewed - But why not?? This is good!
Author's Response: Well, thanks! No one had reviewed because it was just put up. Thanks for the review, Pussycat123! --pp
Summary: 2009 QSQ Awards Winner for Best Chaptered Canon Romance
Before the chosen one was ever born, his parents had to meet, fall in love, and defy Voldemort three times. Easier said than done. Things were never easy for Harry Potter's parents, but it gets a whole lot harder when Death Eaters kidnap Lily. This is the story of Lily and James, the trials they face, and how James finally wins Lily's heart. (pre-Deathly Hallows)
“I’ll always protect you.”
First of all, congratulations on the QSQ, which is, I'll admit, why I decided to read this (also when I saw how epicly long it was, because I was really in the mood for a fic that just kept on going! If that makes any sense at all ...)
Basically I really, really loved this! I thought it was so well written, and you'd made it so much more real than I ever could (I'm always a bit jealous of writers who can pull off drama and angst convincingly, and you certainly did, because there was just enough to make it realistic and captivating, but not enough to make it over the top and ridiculous). For example, as I'm sure many people have already said, but I'll say it again, Emma was truly a work of art, particularly in the epilogue, when you saw the direction her life had inevitably taken, and her relationship with Sirius, which in a perfect world would have been beautiful and could have saved her, but which circumstance had made something else entirely.
That being said, one of my favourite parts was still Sirius blindly insisting to McGonagall that Lily and James had eloped, because even in such a serious circumstance, he still made me laugh. =D
Thanks for writing such a great fic - I've really enjoyed reading it!
Author's Response: Aw, thank you so much! I completely understand what you mean about wanting to read a long fic -- sometimes I'm in the mood for one-shots and sometimes I want something epic and novel-y. I'm glad you decided to give this a chance and that you liked it! It's my "first born" baby as far as HP fanfiction goes, so I'm very attached to it. And yes, many people have admired Emma, and I have to admit that I'm rather attached to her too, so its good to know you liked her character! :) Thanks again.
Summary: What does Lord Voldemort do in his spare time? Well, that's an excellent question. Who would have known that the Dark Lord has a blog? (He also has a loyal following of readers, most of whom are Death Eaters and who post their comments.) Voldemort dispenses advice on everything from murder methods to germ protection to Power Rangers to shoes, and gives an account of the life of an evil overlord. But is he posting too much personal information online? And will Harry read it and find out more about the Dark Lord than Voldemort ever intended? Read and see.
WARNING: Extremely OOC behaviour from almost all.
RUNNER-UP in the 2007 Quicksilver Quills Awards for Best Humour fic! Also nominated like 21 times, because apparently my readers are as insane as I am!
Hahaha ... Classic. I love it. I really do, it's brilliant!

... And he Turned Around Snobbily and Strutted Away by Mind_Over_Matter
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 64]
Summary: "Strutting around the place with his friends and admirers..." ~Professor Snape, PoA
There may be some reason behind Snape's words.
Ha ha. that was awesome! Ahem, I particularly liked this bit:
"So what if I’ve decided that today I’m going to play around with my style, and try strutting around the place surrounded by my dear friends,” he indicated Remus, Peter, Lily and Amy, “and, of course, my much valued admirers,” he indicated Sirius, who pulled a sarcastic face.
Heh heh. I love Sirius and James. They're so amazing. And also ... woo, Lily's friend shares my name!! That's always so uncanny ...
Yeah - they rock realistic humour\'s proverbial socks.
Thanks for reviewing!
