I am completely obsessed with Harry Potter.
Right now, I am working on two chaptered fics-
Lily and her muggle friends go to a ski resort over summer holiday and James turns up with Sirius Black. They have some good fun and run from some Death Eaters and get up to shenanigans ;)
The Marauder's Map to a Gryffindor's Heart:
I started this a while ago, so it really isn't the best piece of writing... but I do like the story, so I will probably continue. Ten chapters have been written (from about three years ago) so I hope to edit them and hopefully get them on this site! This one basically follows the Marauders through their years at school. Don't expect much character development, since I wrote this when I was about twelve. At least until I get past the first ten chapters :P
Then there's a one-shot!
The Sorting Hat Put Me in Slytherin:
This one shows what might have happened if Harry had become friends with Malfoy... *shutters* It has a lot more to do with Harry's character and all that deep stuff. Enjoy :D
1. A second Generation story about Lily Luna Potter's Hogwarts experience and her unexpected friend, Scorpius Malfoy.
2. A tale about Dobby's life
3. A fic about Merope Gaunt and how she fell in love with Tom Riddle
4. A story about Seamus' mother and how she grew up in a muggle home as an adopted servant girl and after going to Hogwarts, falls in love with a Muggle
I always love getting reviews! (but then again, don't we all?) Well, I think that's all I have to say!
Summary: Lavender's depressed. She just can't seem to get over Ron Weasley...and the fact that he led her on while clearly being in love with someone else. The solution? Quitely getting drunk in her bed, away from the party downstairs in the common room. But what happens with the easiest person to blame stumbles in?
wow that was unexpected.... well written though!
Author's Response: Thanks very much. Such is the response I was hoping for.
Summary: In Britain, there are two birthdays that are waited for with bated breath by witches and wizards alike. The first is turning eleven. This birthday brings an owl bearing a letter to Hogwarts.
For some, getting their letter does not go as planned. In this series, you will discover the day several witches and wizards received their letter and why it wasn’t just a normal day.
I wish to thank my beta, Alyssa (harry4lif).
I do not own anything your recognise in this story. It all belongs to J.K. Rowling. I am just thankful to be able to play in her world for a little while.
haha i really liked this chapter! how many people are you doing? i hope a lot! i cant wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thank you. I don't know how many I am doing. I am at the mercy of my muse. I know there will be several more though. Thanks again, Terri
Summary: At the end of 6th year, after James and Lily have an argument, Lily comes to the realisation that James is human after all, and she’s been quite the hypocrite.
aw i liked that! it was really cute!
Author's Response: Hehehe. Thank you :)
Summary: “Guilt brings people together. It’s a takes one to know one type thing.”
James Potter has always been a spoiled, arrogant, lazy show-off. When he enters his final year at Hogwarts School, he’s Head Boy . . . and he’s still a spoiled, arrogant, lazy, show-off. But because of that terrible summer, he’s also guilt-ridden.
Lily Evans has always been a self-righteous, impatient, temperamental know-it-all. When she begins her last year at Hogwarts, she’s Head Girl . . . and still a self-righteous, impatient, temperamental know-it-all. But the first night back — and the murder that takes the entire school by surprise — leave her guilt-ridden as well.
With the darkness that’s surrounding the Wizarding world slowly seeping, at long last, onto the grounds of Hogwarts and into the lives of James Potter and Lily Evans, what comes next?
HOLY MOTHER OF MERLIN!!!! I was actually alone in my room, gasping out loud as I read this chapter. And much worse, I yelled, "YOU JERK!" when I found out about Regulus. I'm so into this story and I can't wait to read about the encounter with Voldemort! I actually wasn't expecting that... I thought they would stay in Hogwarts for sure, but I'm really excited for the next chapter now! And I feel awful for Grace =[ it's so sad. And poor Lily! I can imagine that would be so hard on James. Man, this has got to be my favorite story on this site (beating out An Unseemly Proposal!) and one of the best written! Thanks for writing it!! =D And please update soon!
Author's Response: Haha, I'm glad you're enjoying it so much! This story definitely didn't point towards a final confrontation with Voldemort the way my last Lily/James epic, Someone To Watch Over Me, did, but it's good to know you're excited for it even if you didn't expect it :) Thanks very much for the review! And your favourite story on the site? Wow, thank you!
oh my god!! that was absolutely incredible! what a chapter! i almost screamed! ok where to begin?all right about the death eater stuff... its so sad! they just kill people and have no problem with it. was regulus the one who killed jill? its just a theory, but it just seems like he was... and at the very end there i was so excited and i was reading so quickly that i thought KATRINA was the one who kissed him! i had to re-read the last four paragraphs before i realised what had happened! obviously, i loved the chapter! i love the story! i alwasys get so excited when i get the email telling me that there is an update! so please update soon! i cant wait to see what happens next!!!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'm glad you liked this chapter -- you're excitement gets me excited! This was certainly an important chapter. I'm almost finished with the next one and hope to post it within the week, so you won't have to wait too long to find out what happens next ;)
So, so, so amazing! I absolutely adored this story! It was perfect and thought provoking and interesting and well written! I couldn't find a single flaw if I tried. My favorite chapter was probably chapter five when they were playing the drinking game. It was pretty funny and light-hearted! I also liked when James was figuring everything out and talking to Grace and Regulus. That was really cool to see everything adding up. I could tell that this whole story was REALLY well planned! As for my favorite character... well, the entire time I wanted to give James a big hug =] I love him! But I also really liked Regulus and Grace together. That part was really good. I loved the whole thing so much! I'm really sad that you aren't planning any more chaptered fics... but I'll definitely look for your one/two-shots! Thanks so much for such a great story!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I really liked writing chapter five and I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out, so I'm glad you liked it! And I'm so happy you liked James -- I love him way more than anyone should ever love a fictional character ;) Oh, and I'm glad you liked how it all came together and enjoyed everything with Regulus and Grace!
WOW that was really good and i hope that you update soon! poor cassie... she seems really cute and innocent. gr8 job and keep writing!
Author's Response: Ah, the exciting first review! Thanks very much :) I'm glad you like it so far. Hopefully the next chapter will be up soon!
OMG! who screamed? what happened? who died? i really hope that you update soon and that was a really gr8 chapter and i just loved it! the firecracker thing was funny! i enjoyed that part! and im glad that James didn't let Katrina come along... and... wait! was it katrina that screamed? omg! that would b scary! oh i really ohope that nobody dies now! it would make this story even sadder! but ya! amazing chapter and please update soon!! =D
Author's Response: I'm glad I've managed to peak your interest with the cliffhanger ending! ;) I will try and update as quickly as I can. More death would definitely be sad, but I did warn you this was a dark story . . . not that I'm saying more people will die. . . Thanks for the review!
Wow! Amazing chapter! I'm really excited to see what's going to happen- this story always keeps me on the edge of my seat! And I love James' POV. I think his thoughts are great and I just like following him around. Maybe Lily could tell James what snape was saying? I'd love to know! Please update soon cuz this is one of my favorite stories!
Author's Response: Thanks very much! I'm glad you like James's POV -- he's so much fun to write :) And it makes me smile to know it's one of your favorites! I'll try to update soon.
wow! another incredible chapter! you are an amazing writer and i cant wait until the next chapter! update soon please!
Author's Response: Thanks very much! I'm glad you like the story so far! The next chapter should be up soon :)
Another fantastic chapter! Hmmmm r they making a time traveling potion? That would b cool! One where they can look back to see what happened. I really like how James is thinking how horrible it is that cassie won't have parents because it is just like what happens with harry when James and lily are killed. I'm excited to see what happens @ hogsmead so please please please update soon!!
Author's Response: I was actually thinking about the comparison of Harry and Cassie when I was writing that! I'm glad you liked this chapter; thanks for the review! The next chapter should hopefully be up soon.
I my god! That is horrible! This is a really sad story so far and I can't wait to find out what happens next! Plz update soon!!
Author's Response: That was pretty horrible, wasn't it? But it doesn't stay this bad the whole fic! I will try and update soon; thanks for the review.
YAY! im so happy you updated this! i hope the next one doesnt take as long... but that was a great chapter! i just loved it! i cant wait to see the polyjuice potion in action! i love this story so please update soon!
Author's Response: I'm happy I finally updated, too! :) I'm glad you liked this chapter, and hopefully you'll like the next one with the polyjuice potion, too. Thanks for the review!
Yikes! Another great chapter! I hope Lily isn't too mad at James... but after re-reading that last description again, I see she was pretty angry... Thanks for updating so quickly and hopefully the next one will be up soon! Yay!
Author's Response: She does sound pretty ticked off, doesn't she? I'm glad you appreciate the quick update -- I'll definitely try and update quickly again! Thanks for the review :)
Yay! That was such a good chapter! It was really funny and I loved lily in this 1! I do enjoy detective James! He's the shelock holmes of hogwarts! The first year was so cute 2! Please update soon!! :)
Author's Response: Thanks! James, the Sherlock Holmes of Hogwarts -- I like it! ;) I'm glad you liked this chapter.
This was amazing! I was in tears by the end of it. Will you please become a professional author? You can be certain that I would buy your books =] I've read a lot of stories where encounters with Voldemort are very over the top and way too cheesy, but I thought you did an unbelievable job! Voldemort's characterization was spot-on and so perfect! I was so nervous that Lily was going to die, even though I knew that she had to live because of cannon... Ahh! I just can't get over how amazing this was! I feel awful for Sirius, it all seems so horrible and heartbreaking because now I know that after they leave school everything kinda goes downhill... Another thing that has happened multiple times while reading this story, is that I keep thinking that this is automatically cannon! I was nodding my head thinking, "Well, this is why Sirius hates Regulus so much," or "This is when Dumbledore asked them all to be in the Order..." Oh, and that brings me to another topic, Peter. Merlin, I keep wondering how Peter could betray his friends after seeing what they've gone through. After seeing all the hate and ERG! Then, I remember that this isn't exactly cannon, but still! (It's good enough to be cannon!) After all the loss, though. . . Anyway, I think I've ranted enough! Whoo! Basically, I love this story. I can't wait for the epilogue and I can't wait to see what tale you come up with next! Thank you for writing! xoxo
Author's Response: Thank you very much! Professional author is the dream, I admit. I was nervous about that encounter with Voldemort because he, like Dumbledore, is so hard to pin down, imo, and writing him is always walking a thin line. I'm so glad you thought it was done well! Sirius really does get the short stick in life, and he deserves so much better! I like stories where he has a good romance in school, but it never seems entirely accurate to me. As for Peter . . . I kind of hate stories where he's made out to be a dumbass who isn't actually even all that good of friends with the rest. I really don't think that was the case. But as for how he could turn evil after all that, well, it's funny you should mention it, because the epilogue has to do with that ;)
Oh, haha, I forgot to mention that I went and looked up "Made of Steel" and squealed as I read the chapter names along with the song =] just thought I'd mention that as a side-note!
Author's Response: Ooh, I'm glad! It's always been a favorite song of mine :)
wow! that was such a good chapter! i love this story so much! it is so good and well written and it is absolutely incredible! im intersted to see what happens with grace because she is such an interesting character. it's her own fault that she doesnt have friends tho and she shouldnt be so horrible to Lily. i cant wait to see what happens next, so please update soon! =D
Author's Response: Thank you! Grace is definitely an important character, although she won't always star so prominently in every chapter. I'm glad you like the story and think it well written. I'll try and update as soon as I can!
YAYAYAYAYYAYAYAY! I screamed when I saw this was updated... and so quickly too! I absolutely adored this chapter and it made me really happy and smily! Im so happy they are dating now, and i think you did a really good job of making it believable. yikes this story is so good! please update again soon- I cant wait to see what will happen next!!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'm glad you liked it. They still have issues to deal with, but they are FINALLY together :)
MERLIN! It was Grace?! For the last chapter, I didn't even review because as soon as I saw that Lenore died I freaked out and shut the laptop! This was such an intense chapter! And really sad =[ I'm really proud of myself though, because I guessed that their fight was fake. Yay! But please update soon! I really need to find out what happens! This is one of my favorite stories on this site! Ahhh! Keep writing!!
Author's Response: Haha, yes, Grace. Good job guessing that the fight was fake! I'm glad you liked this chapter and like the story -- a favourite on the site is high praise! Thanks for the review. I'll definitely try to update soon -- I know I ended this one in an evil way. ;)
