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: 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.
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
Summary: So many children had passed through her class in the small Primary School of Little Whinging, and Miss. Morrison liked to think she remembered them all. The shy ones, who hid behind their mothers legs or curled up in their fathers protective arms; the boisterous ones, who ran in small, never ending circles with boundless energy. The smart ones and the ones who struggled, sometimes bravely and sometimes with tears and tantrums. The short ones and the tall ones, the sweet and the mischievous; they were all special to her, in their own way, and they all earned themselves a special place in her memories. All of them, that is, except for one.
That's such a nice fic! I've never thought much about Harry's primary school days - beyond Dudley beating him up, that is, obviously.
It was really nicely written, and I liked Miss Morrison, she seemed nice, even though there was hardly much she could do. I also liked the last line: "She could only hope he had gone somewhere a little brighter." Lovely. I want to say ironic, but I don't think that's quite the right word. Well, you know what I mean.
It was really nice! Have a gold star! (Yeah, I know, poor excuse of a joke).
Summary: How would you react if your friends found out your deepest secret, a secret that, if revealed, you lead to you being outcast from wizarding society? When Remus Lupin's fellow Maruaders discover his lycanthropy, how can he cope?
References to suicide, hence the warning.
That was very powerful, and moving. Of course, we know that just going back and facing them all is far braver than jumping off a tower. Oh, Remus, of course you're a Gryffindor! *hugs Remus*
Nice fic, really well done.
Author's Response: *also hugs Remus* Thanks for the review!
Summary: Salazar Slytherin fled Hogwarts a mere day ago. Now, scarred and pained, the Four Founders reflect on broken promises and the memories of what used to be.
Hey, I liked this. I usually can't really be bothered with Historical fics (I prefer Maruader Era) but I thought I'd meander over here and see what I found.
And it was good! It captured emotions really well, and it made you wonder what would have happened if they had all stayed together, and instead of going on about WHY he left them, it was all about how they felt ...
Because what does it matter why he left, right? Well, yeah, like I said. It was really good.
Author's Response: I\'m glad you decided to branch out and come see some Historical stories. :D I usually don\'t read many Historical fics either, actually, but when you get a good bunny you got to run with it.... Anyhow, thanks for reading and leaving this nice review! :)
Summary: Lucius Malfoy is most infamous for being excessively proud of his ancestry and for his disdain for Muggle-borns. But what if he received a letter that changed everything? Takes place during OotP, and it's AU.
Contains snippets of humour.
For the "Dreams" challenge in the fanfiction beta boards... I am Schmerg_The_Impaler of Hufflepuff House.
Dun dun DUN! Sorry. That was probably meant to be more serious that I am taking it - the thought of Lucius being anything other than Lucius just makes me titter inside ...
But hey. I kinda liked it - especially the first part, going through his many posessions. And the hypothetically stolen throne - that made me laugh, "hypothetically" is one of the best words ever for comedy ...
Anyway, I'm going to read what happens next now. Hurrah!
Author's Response: Ooh, thank you! You know, I don\'t take it overly seriously either. I like Lucius, but like Voldemort, I just can\'t take him seriously. After writing him as \'daddylusciouslocks,\' I can\'t quite think of him as otherwise! I like the hypothetically stolen throne it just kind of popped into my head.
*giggles hysterically* Peverall crest flatware ... *giggles some more, and realises the end of the story has come* Oh no! But wouldn't it just be so cool if that really happened?
Where did the "Sawney" thing come from, I wonder ... it didn't seem connected to his "real" name at all. Odd ... but not impossible.
An Uncle called Elizabeth ... a reference to your friend's rabbit, I presume? I remember you told me about it when you reviewed one of the Janey fics ... I swear, that is the coolest name for a guy I've ever heard (okay, maybe I just have a thing for cross gender names. Like Fred for a girl, Delilah for a boy, and Lionel for a stupid female man-toad).
I liked this! It was fun. And Mr Cook the butler, and Mr Butler the cook made me smile ... a lovely bit of creative randomness there!
Now, I'm off to see what else I can read ...
Author's Response: Sawney really, really is a Scottish nickname for Alexander. This whole story spawned from this wax sculpture I saw that looked just like Lucius, only wearing a kilt... I like cross-gender names, too. Hence a nice little girl ghost named Bob in one of my other stories. ^_^
Summary: The Prisoner of Azkaban has escaped, returning to Hogsmeade for more than his godson. Sirius comes to reclaim the woman he left behind.
*Follows the Marauder Era stories Semi Charmed Life and A Charmed Life*
Yes, it touched me. I've read this, A Charmed Life, and the rest of Semi-Charmed Life in a day - my internet broke for two weeks, so this has been my first chance to catch up with all the fics I was deprived of.
I loved them all, I really like the idea of Sirius and Rosmerta now - I was originally sceptical, but you convinced me, so kudos to you!
Thanks for writing these great fics, I take off my hat to you. Or I would, if I was wearing one. A job well done, I do say!
Author's Response: I\'m partial to musketeer hats, with dashing feathers, but any hat you doff is an honour and I thank you! ^_^ Thank you for looking up the stories once your internet was fixed. I really appreciate the time you spent reading my fics and that you like the idea of Sirius and Rosmerta now! Merci beaucoup!
Hi! I pretty much read this whole thing over two or three days (it's much better than studying for my A Levels, after all ... I mean, who needs qualifications?). I have to say, I love it! As usual, I've made myself jealous that I don't live at Hogwarts in 1970s Marauder-era, but that's nothing new. And I completely love James! Of course, I always love James, but still. It was so cute in this chapter as he got all excitable over Sirius and Kirsty. Cod. I LOVE James! I just want to adopt him, or marry him, or something.
Also, I totally loved it when you referenced Hustle and Buffy, possibly two of my favourite TV shows ever. *applauds*
Anyway. I've really enjoyed reading this, and I hope it's updated soon! It's so nice to escape to a world where there's no such thing as unrequited love and everyone finds their soul mate at seventeen ... even if it does make me jealous! =D
Great job with this, really, and happy new year!
PS: My favourite quote so far: "I can't believe you just threw my shoe at the pitch!"
Author's Response: Gosh 2/3 days! Hehe, I'm currently avoiding my A level revision too lol. Thank you so much, your compliments meant so much to me!
I know James is just so adorable, I always want to hug him!
Yes for Hustle and Buffy and well done for spotting them lol.
I know, these fanfic characters have it easy really :D lol.
Thank you so much!
Hey! My cat's called Willow, too! She's actually sleeping on my feet as we speak. Not only that, but in a story I wrote once (not HP, original) there is a bird called Socrates (only he's a budgie, not an owl. Still, pretty cool, right?).
Anyway, yeah, nice fic so far, I really like the characters. =)
Author's Response: Awww, soo cute! Wow! Great minds think alike lol! Thank you!
Well, at first I was on Hayley's side completely, and was practically yelling "Kick him in the head!" at my computer screen. Which was weird, because usually I really, really like Remus. But, even knowing his side of the story, I was just really mad at him.
Then when he whispered that little, "I'm a werewolf" ... AAAH! I just kind of exploded with love and forgave him for everything ever. He seemed incredibly ... I dunno, real all of a sudden. Very human. Because he was trying so hard to protect the girl he loved, and it was so hard for him to say that one little thing that it barely came out as words. And, even though it was kind of cliched, I loved that it was raining and stuff. It really wasn't a bad thing at all. Basically, yeah. It was like I was just kind of completely channelling Hayley's emotions somehow. It was awesome.
And I want a Remus. =)
Summary: Lord Voldemort made a deal with someone who even he considers superior, and if he doesn't fulfill his side of it, then he'll be mortal again!
I am Schmerg_The_Impaler of Hufflepuff house, and this is my submission for the Deathly Hallows prompt in the New Year's Challenge.
Although this story's a one-shot for the challenge, I may add more chapters after the contest is over.
EDIT: Dude! This story came in second in the "Deathly Hallows" prompt of the New Years' Challenge! So, let's do the "2nd Place Dance!" (It's a lot like the Cha-Cha slide.)
Titter. That would have been a dramatic, semi-serious fic if it hadn't been for the last line ... who would have suspected McGonagall?
I liked Mr Deathly ... I can imagine him being the Grim Reaper (there goes my shovel), and he seemed to fit the role ... although the image of him you described was creepy.
I also liked Voldemort drinking a glass of wine. You can completely imagine it happening.
Hmm ... I really can't think of anything else to say. Darn. Oh well ... off to investigate some more!
Author's Response: Thanks so much for your lovely review! I just realized that Voldemort has wine in at least two of my stories... odd. And yes, Deathly is fun, I don\'t know why.
Summary: The future is looking bright for Dorcas Meadowes.
Hey ... this is good! Really inspiring. I liked Dorcas, although there wasn't much of her we saw.
I've become mildly interested in the character these last couple of days, and I decided to do a summary search to see whether anything interesting came up ... and this was just too intriguing to pass by!
It's strange this only has one review so far ... it's only short, yeah, but it's still good. I liked the thing with the mirror.
Anyway, well done!
Summary: Elizabeth has lost a lot of love in the world, could James Lee Jordan and a little winter time help bring her back and give her a little hope for the future?
I know I said I'd read your other stuff, but I only have time for one at the minute, and very quickly, too.
Basically, I liked it, but not quite as much as the others ... I dunno, it just wasn't quite believable in some places.
But it was sweet! And also, FLUFF! In abundance. ^_^
Like I said, very pushed for time, I'd better run - but it was good!
I'll be back, I promise.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! This was my very first story up on Mugglenet, so if it wasn\' as good as the others it\'s probbly becuase I\'ve inproved my writing since then. But thanks anyway for the wonderful review. I think i rather like writing fluff :) ~Nicole
Ha ha, that was funny! I especially liked the "the author" parts, and ESPECIALLY especially liked the final paragraph - perfection!
Congratulations on a job well done (uh oh, now I'M doing it ...)
Author's Response: Those were a great deal of fun, though they were pretty much reflections of my mood as I struggled with my cliches. Thank you for reviewing!
