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. =)
December 3rd, 1980
It is a dark day for Gideon Prewett.
His fiancé has died at the hands of Voldemort’s followers. His brother has been missing for two weeks. Now, numbness and desperation are beginning to get the better of him, and the line between Right and Wrong is fading.
This was a story of the Gauntlet, third run.
Okay, I said I'd read more Prewett stuff, and I will. While I preferred reading fun, happy tales about aerosol cans and fork trees, this is still good, and I am determined to stick it out - no matter how dark it is. You're writing is really good - I could never write anything this dark, trust me. Right, now I'm off to Chapter Two ...
My word. He became a Death Eater? Okay, either I just said something incredibly naive, or this is one heck of a story ... although I will again admit that it's hard going. But you're writing is fantastic, and now I have to finish it ... Poor Gideon! Oh, for his Gucky days ...
Intriguing ... You know, part one nearly made me cry. This story is so well written, and at the same time so ... so dark, disturbing, but true, despite it (obviously) being fictional. Peculiar how much I wanted to find and hug poor Gideon during this chapter ... not that it would make much difference, I'm sure. I've said it before, and I'll say it again; you're a great writer. This proves that you can do dark fics well, and I know you can do humour fics well, and it's just generally great. Congratulations.
Wow. Powerful. Another tear jerker - I love Gideon and Tisha, they seem so right together (even if she wasn't real when he was talking to her). This was so amazing. Poor Gideon ... if only he could get his life on track again. But I suppose with being a Death Eater now, that might be hard ... Oooh, I'll just have to read the last chapter and find out, won't I?
Summary: What have the brilliant Weasley twins, Fred and George, come up with now? To help stop Voldemort sending Harry nightmares, and to extract a little revenge while they are at it, the twins develop a new product and test it on the boy-who-needed-a-good-sleep. Post HBP oneshot.
Ok here are my facial expressions while reading this: Annoyed (at yawning so much, dammit!) Laughing (at Fred and George's long winded speeches) Smirking (at Hermione's horror and exasperation, it was spot on) Confused (as I, like Hermione, tried to work out the Draco Malfoy thing) Realisation (as I DID work out the Draco Malfoy thing) Hysterical laughter (at Draco worriedly wondering why he had been urgently summoned).
Seriously, it was great. Really clever - the Fred and George stuff could have been written by JKR herself!
Author's Response: High praise, thank you.
Summary: After a potion goes awry, Draco finds himself as the newly appointed babysitter of one Hermione Granger, age: 4. As if that wasn't humiliating enough, his wand is confiscated by Potter and he is forced to do everything the dreaded Muggle way.
Note to my readers: This story has been on hiatus forever due to a variety of factors. I do hope to finish it some day, but don't hold your breath. Also, this is NOT a Dramione nor will I change it to be one. Lastly, I am in the process of rewriting this story so bear with me.
Heh heh heh ... this is fun! I hope you continue to write, Mini-Hermione is really sweet, and I can imagine Malfoy acting exactly the way you are writing him in this situation - it makes me smile.
Author's Response: Oh gosh, I definitely intend to keep writing this story. I\'m not giving it up, and intend on seeing it until the end. =]I\'m glad it makes you smile - I try! ~Ritta
Summary: A collection of one-shots centered around celebration, happiness, family, or love. Each chapter is a different one-shot from a different mod-- a gift from us to you. Happy birthday, MNFF! *Bows to Authors*
Is it really sad that there are tears in my eyes? That was so sweet! I loved how you'd made them so real for how I imagined them ... I'm assuming it is Lily and James, but I guess if you wanted to you could think of it as Harry and Ginny ... It was a nice touch the way you never actually stated which (although the late July/early August was a strong hint). Anyway, I'm just babbling now, so ... yeah. It was great. Looking forward to the next! This was such a great idea!
Hee hee. I liked this. And can I say that this line: "(granted, this was only because Peter had told him that it was a game, but at least it had worked)." had particular sentimental value to me, as I have used the same trick on my younger many-a-time. And he's 12-and-a-half years old. But still. Moving on, I really enjoyed this! I thought it was funny, but my only thought was that Lily and James are married age 19/20 is a little young. But then, this was ... uh ... late seventies? So I guess it's not QUITE as unusual as it would be today. Anyway, I'm enjoying this whole group-mod-fic thing, and look forward to the updates!
Hey, I really liked that! It was very well written ... And it didn't go off on a big long tangent like I sometimes find myself doing ... *ahem*. Basically, it was short, and to the point, but elegantly done. It's so weird to be reviewing the mods, ha ha! Looking forward to the next one!
Summary: Young, blind love. It’s beautiful, isn’t it?
This was a submission to the Winter Tales challenge, ‘A Christmas Carol: Parody’ on the forums, parody'ing the carol, 'We Three Kings'.
*Gasp* I just sung this in my head, as I was reading it, and it was SO good. You've pulled off the "thy"s and "thou"s and "doth"s excellently. Heh heh, I love how romantic Gideon is being here. If only things hadn't gone so wrong ... Well, kudos to you for the whole thing, it's wonderful.
You mentioned something like "it broke my heart to rewrite the verse about myrrh". It made me smile, because that's my favourite verse as well - it's really dark and doom-y, but it always seems to be the one I sing with the most vigour ... lol, random am I, or what?
Anyway, just to say I have loved all the Prewett'd fics, they're all brilliant, but in different ways (although my favourite has to be Gucky and the Fork Tree, because it was the only one with Molly in it, and I really liked her as a young girl). I almost want to write my own fic about them, but I'm not going to, because it would completely steal your "thunder", and I could never do them justice. I'll just have to hope you're not finished with them yet.
Summary: For Lord Voldemort, life is going swell, and everything is juuust peachy... until a ghostly visitor arrives. EXTRAORDINARILY silly.
EDIT: For some bizarre reason that I can't fully comprehend, this story WON the "Things that Go Bump In The Night" challenge in the Winter's Tale Challenge.
Ha ha ha, this made me laugh! Tee hee. It's a wonder I never thought of what would happen if Voldemort's victims haunted him as ghosts ... Tee hee! I liked Bob. She was fun. I have a (girl) friend called Bob, only it's shot for Robyn, not Roberta. Fun fact of the week for you there.
Well, congratulations muchly on winning the challenge (I forgot which one it was, sorry, I have terrible memory problems) because you deserve it. It's nice to have a funny fic win something, rather than a really depressing and emotional one ... I'd much rather be laughing than crying.
Well, I think I've prattled on enough, and should probably be doing something more useful, like saving the world from annoying celebrities, so I'll be leaving you now. Ta ra!
Author's Response: Thanks! I actually think this is my weakest story up on this site, but this is a nice, long review. I agree with you on the thing about \'I\'d much rather be laughing than crying.\' I just can\'t write totally serious pieces!
Summary: James and Lily spend their summers together producing plays, though neither are happy about the presence of the other. With James, as the set designer, and Lily, as the actress, tensions run high.
Well ... you've got my attention, that's for sure.
I loved James. I always love James, arrogant and cocky that he is, I have never read a fic where I didn't love James ... I'm thinking of marrying him. =D
Anyway, I want to read on, so I'll bow graciously to you, in respect to your very original story, and I'll see you next chapter.
Author's Response: Yes, I\'ve got your attention! :D And I\'m really glad you love James so much... the same goes for me! Hence the reason I practically adore him! Thank you so much for the review! Yours truly, Amelia Bedelia
*SQUEE* I continue to love James, although it slipped with sympathy for Lily at the start, when he was dodging about to stop her getting on the train. Because if it's one thing I hate, it's someone doing that to me, due to my complete inability to do anything about it except glare at them.
But after that, I went right back to loving him again. The funniest part, was when he was closing his eyes, imagining the set, and Lily was thinking that he looked downright disturbing, I don't know, it just made me laugh. And love James.
Anyway, great story!
Author's Response: Yes, they\'ve got a few ups and downs in their personality, don\'t they? Well, they\'ll learn... I\'ll be sure of that! :D Thanks for reviewing! Yours truly, Amelia Bedelia
He comes shining through again, I see.
I love how you describe the electricity, the real tension between them, it's very well done! I'm going to read the next chapter now, though, so toodles, and see you then!
Author's Response: I\'m so glad you felt the tension! I was hoping to really describe that well enough for readers to notice... and you did! :D Thanks! And thank you for reviewing! Yours truly, Amelia Bedelia
Oooh, what did she do that for?
Sorry, got to move on now and find out!
Author's Response: Haha - you\'ve got to find out! :D Perfectly ok with me! Thanks for the review! Yours truly, Amelia Bedelia
That was an abrupt ending. Was it supposed to finish that quickly? Well, never mind.
My favourite bit was James making out "ran into" a dragon, and Sirius's scepticsm - SUCH a Marauder Moment!
Did I mention that I love Sirius, too? Because I do. He makes me laugh, he's really funny as a teenager, and very cool as an adult (although a little reckless). Anyway, I'm going to find out more, congratulations on a wonderful fic!
Author's Response: Oh, yes, the lovable Marauders! But don\'t worry, I\'ll work in a few more Marauder moments before the story finishes! Thanks for the review! Yours truly, Amelia Bedelia
Hee hee. I loved Lily thinking he had a gun - the sort of mad, panicky thing I would start to think if I was her...
Oh, before I forget - this is the seventies, remember? In England. The thing about England, is that we don't use cents. If you want to mean "every cent" you would say "every penny" or "every pence" (penny is singular, pence is plural). Also, we call pants trousers, but that's not QUITE as important as currency.
Don't get me wrong, I totally understand, and I really like this story, I just thought I'd point it out.
Anyway, it was really good, they're scene ... I could see it, in my mind's eye, it was wonderfull. Really.
Author's Response: Good point on the cents/pants thing... I never thought of that! I\'ll try to keep an eye out for that! And I\'m really glad you could see it - that\'s great! Thank you for the review! Yours truly, Amelia Bedelia
*sob* Oh cod! Did I mention - I think I did - that I am actually in love with James?
When he was with Cindy, I swear, I could actually SEE him with her by the campside, it brought tears to my eyes! And then again - again, when Lily was upset, and he - he - well, you know what he did, again I nearly cried!
Why? Why on EARTH does the guy have to be so damn fictional, already?
This is going on my favourites, can't WAIT for the update, honestly!
Author's Response: Who ISN\'T in love with James??? :D And I am SO excited that you almost cried! I shouldn\'t be too happy - but I can\'t help it! :) Thank you so much for the review! Yours truly, Amelia Bedelia
=D That was great! So adorable! Did I mention at any point before now that I'm in love with James? I think I did. ;D
I like Jimmy, he's really funny. And quite possibly heading to Hogwarts soon, if what I'm thinking is correct.
Also ... I love James. =D
Author's Response: Ah, yes, you might have mentioned once - or twice - a week - all summer - that you loved James... :D (Can you name that book??? Here\'s a hint - from dear old Fred and George...) I\'m so glad you like them so much! :D Thanks for reviewing! Yours truly, Amelia Bedelia
Why can't I just marry James right now?
=D It definitely made up for the long wait, don't worry, and I loved it. I'm very intrigued to find out what's in that envelope, though ...
Author's Response: If James could be married... I probably would have gotten to him first. :D I adore his character - that\'s probably why I love the Lily/James stories so much! Thanks for reviewing! Yours truly, Amelia Bedelia
