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).
Order of the Janey fics (it doesn’t matter what order you read my other stuff in)
“It Unscrews The Other Way”
Trouble With Exams – A Janey Weasley One-Shot.
Everybody Loves Janey Weasley
Being Janey Weasley
Janey Weasley Springs; My Mother
Living In The Weasley-Springs Family ... Merlin Help Me
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: 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!
Summary: It's the sequel to "The Dark Lord's Blog," guys! (And girls... and, I don't know, gender-neutral people and centaurs and walruses and parameciums and shrubs and stuff.)
Several months have passed since Filch came into possession of Voldemort's magical powers, and he has taken over Hogwarts.
With Filch serving as The Dark Lord Snoogerblossom, the position of Hogwarts caretaker/janitor is open. Seeing as Voldemort wants his magical powers back, he and his extremely attractive new sidekick, Mungo Phelps, go undercover at Hogwarts, with Mungo posing as a transfer student and Voldemort posing as the new janitor. Wacky high-jinks ensue.
Join Voldemort as he tries to get back his magic, kill Harry Potter, steal Gryffindor's sword to make a shiny new Horcrux, romance Minerva McGonagall, discover Sirius's secret to becoming a chick magnet, and swallow a teaspoon of his pride to mop up spills the Muggle way and wear an unflattering uniform! WARNING: Extremely silly and very out-of-character.
If you haven't read "The Dark Lord's Blog," well, what are you doing? GO READ IT NOW! Just click on my author name and you'll be directed to my chaotic author page, which lists all my wacky stories.
This is on hiatus, dudes. Ooh! But it was twice nominated by nice (and insane) people for the Best Humour Fic award in the Quicksilver Quills thingy!
Also, some wonderful loony nominated Mungo Phelps for Best Male OC, making him if possible even more conceited! (No one had the heart to tell Mungo that he was designed as an example of a terrible OC.)
EXCITING NEWS! "The E-Journal of an Evil Janitor" is now continued as a Twitter blog! Go to Twitter dot com and find thedarklord666. Voldy's waiting!
*malicious glee* I didn't know that the sequel was up! Yay, the sequel's up! I can't wait til he gets to Hogwarts ... talk about the ride of a humorous life.
My favourite quote, I think, was "NOTE: AT LEAST I CAN SPELL LOSER, POTTER!" because it had me cackling madly like a madwoman for some time. Oh, and also "That sounds like something my son would like." because ... PAHAHAHA!
There are some fics where randomness for humour comes across as lame. This is not one of them. I look forward to many more laughs to come.
Author's Response: Yep, it should be fun once he gets to Hogwarts! I\'m so glad you don\'t think my stories are lame... that\'s quite compliment coming from you with your spifftastically funny stories. Hmmm, PAHAHAHA... that\'s a new evil laugh.
Summary: When tragedy strikes and Harry dies, Ginny must learn to live with her painful memories. She forces herself to carry on in her life, convincing everyone that she's alright. But, underneath her smile, her world is caving in. Can she ever truly love again?
Hmm ... that was really interesting. A pub that just appears when you're at the depths of despair ... very interesting, indeed. I really liked it. It was true to what Ginny would have been feeling, I think. And it's nice that she was able to move on, too. Well done, it was great, and I don't know WHY I'm only the second reviewer ... *shakes head despairingly*
Author's Response: Thanks for the wonderful review. Hmm, only the second review? *hangs head* Very sad. People just don\'t have time to review I guess. But I luv to people that do, thank you very much! :) ~Nicole
Summary: Ron’s life was ripped from him during the Second War, leaving a two-month pregnant Hermione who has to try and live her life and raise her child alone.
Eeeee! What a great story this will turn out to be! Two little girls for Hermione? Sweeeeeeet! Of course, I'm not just some rambling idiot, and the Ron thing was very sad. But babies just get squeeing.
I really like this fic so far, and I think it really has the potential to be great. I wonder what it is you have planned for this ... apart from the obvious, of course.
I hope you continue this, it's really good!
Author's Response: Aww thanks a lot. I mean, who can resist cute little twin girls? Even in a sad story. Thanks for reviewing, means a lot to me :) ~Nicole
Summary: WARNING! This story contains a jingle-bell antler headband, a shower of potatoes, boy/girl mushiness, underwear karaoke, family trouble, an excessively adorable werewolf, death, the song "Werewolves of London," betrayal, and the word 'Jordan' five times in a row near the beginning of chapter seven.
Twenty-one years after Voldemort's defeat, five fourth-years are faced with a new threat. Will all of the five stay true to the light side? Will they all emerge whole in the end? Will Jordan Potter ever get a life? You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll gasp, you'll sigh! Part one in a trilogy!
Well, after much deliberation and consideration, I've decided to submit my future-gen trilogy! This particular installment is three years old, so it's definitely different from my current writing style, but I'm quite fond of the characters.
DH is disregarded. It's a total coincidence that one of the main characters is named Ted Lupin.
Starring Quicksilver Quills 2008 Best Male Original Character runner-up Jordan Potter, Best Female Original Character nominees Ivy Potter, Haley Potter, and Emma Weasley, and Best Male Original Character nominee Ted Lupin!
Five times nominated (once for each member of Potter's Pentagon!) for the Best Post-Hogwarts story in the 2007 Quicksilver Quills Awards, and nominated for Best Post-Hogwarts story in the 2008 Quicksilver Quill Awards...
Yeah, see, I WOULD expand on the Janey-verse, but everytime I try (and I have tried) it goes horribly wrong. I basically know what happens next, but I can't find a suitable way of including it all into a semi-plausible and semi-unhorrific story. So for now, I'm leaving it where it is ... but who knows? Maybe one day it'll come to me!
As for the beast thing ... I want to point out that I don't say it SERIOUSLY. No one (I know of) in Britain says it seriously, and not in reference to guys, but it was funny anyway, and gave me a laugh, so I'm glad you kept it anyway!
I think there's a typo at the end of the last chapter, where two words became one, but I don't seem to be able to find it again, gosh darn it ... (I was trying to make this less spammy, see). Oh well. I'll un-spam it another way.
Great fic! I
Author's Response: I am a wonderful maker of typos. I could get, like paid for it. I\'m very prolific when it comes to making mistakes.
I don\'t think anyone in America says it seriously, either... kind of like how no one actually says \"Oh My Godric\" out loud unless they\'re kidding.
Told you I'd be back! *Determinedly ignores schoolwork*
Best OC: JORDAN! All the way! For a second there I thought you really HAD made him evil ... it was horrible ... but of COURSE he wasn't evil! Oh, Jordan, I knew you'd come through in the end ...
Least favourite OC: Do I really have to choose? o.0 I guess ... I suppose, Emma. Because ... Well, she seems nice, but pretty scary compared to her friends, and the thing with Tyrone's Mum was really mean that she didn't feel guilty for ages ... I mean, I would definitely feel guilty, even if I hated them. But then, I feel guilty at the slightest thing ...
Ahem ... back to Jordan. (=D) What I really love about him, is when he's having a tantrum he uses words like "irate" and "livid". Because, if I was the tantrum type, I would SO do that, too. Fortunately, I'm not the tantrum type, I'm more likely to give the silent treatment with a side order of evil glares. But still. I have TOTALLY taken to Jordan. I want to be his friend, too! Also, to give him a big hug.
On another note, I'm definitely looking forward to the second book! This one (however good) felt like a bit of a warm up ... I can't wait to see them take part in the Triwizard Tournament! I'm sure at least one of them will be a champion ... my money's on Emma or Jordan (JORDAN!! *fangirls*), but who knows what you're planning ... It'll be interesting, I'm sure, whatever it is.
*Gasp* You know what else I LOVED about this? When those girls called Jordan a "beast"! *cackles madly* I love using the word beast, me and my friend do it all the time ... but not usually in reference to guys. Like if something turns out particularly well, or badly, or was much bigger than we expected, one of us is very likely to exclaim "Look at that beast!" and then fall about laughing madly. So seeing him being called a beast just made me laugh so much ...
Anyway. I LOVED it, Schmergo, it was FANTASTIC! I think ALL your OCs are great, and I completely want to write my own future-gen fic now, but if I do, it won't be for a LONG time, since I already have one chaptered fic going, and no time to start another during exam years ... I have GCSES this year, the British Muggle equivalent to OWLs ... fun. Or not. Also I haven't the faintest idea of a plotline, so, you know, not the best start.
I'm going to see if the next book has started yet, but if it hasn't then I sure hope it does soon! Oh, and before I go ... JORDAN!!!
Author's Response: Wow, hooray for a beautiful-tastic review!
I would kind of love to be friends with Jordan. He\'d probably hate me, but oh well. It\'s funny that you liked the beast thing, as the good folks on the forums told me not to put it in there as \'British people don\'t say it.\' I see that you\'re an exception!
Ooh, ooh, if you do a future-gen, make it an expansion on the Janey Weasley-verse! She\'s too awesome to pass up! And it\'s wonderful to see that you like Jordan. He gets very mixed opinions of him!
*Sigh* The last paragraph in that review was randomly sliced off. It went something like:
"Great fic! I
Author's Response: Tut, that often happens...
Oh, for pete's sake, it happened again. Mods, delete these last few if you want, something doesn't appear to be working. Sorry Schmergo. Basically, in a much shortened version, it said I loved it.
Author's Response: This is madness! >_< What is up with this crazy site?
