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: A poem about Harry dying.
that was good and i wish it was longer! its sad too... good job! =D
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm sorry about the leignth. I'm not to good with the long poems.
Summary: What happened on the night that Tom Riddle was born? What events led up to Merope Gaunt's last breath? Written in response to EmeraldCity's "Birth of a HP Character" challenge on HPFF.
ooo! good story! it was very descriptive and well written! two thumbs up!
Author's Response: Thank you so much!
Summary: Those who knew Lily Evans knew her heart of gold – the kind, innocent, and forgiving nature that was unique to her. Underneath the gold lining, her heart was as red as anyone’s: full of passions and frustrated feelings; her temper just as quickly piqued as it was soothed. The brave colors of her heart would affect the lives of everyone around her, the effect continuing beyond death. Such was a Lion’s Heart.
Excerpt from Volume 7: Once again, James image standing next to her, shielding her from the rain, peering into her face anxiously, appeared foremost in her thoughts.
“There’s James Potter,” Lily finally mentioned.
“There’s a promising name,” her father commented. “Isn’t that the boy who’s been after you for years, though? I thought you didn’t like him.”
“I can’t believe you remember,” Lily said, laughing. “But he’s changed so much. He’s-”
She struggled for words.
“Well, he’s sort of…different, in a way – er – this is absurd! I can’t even find the words to describe him.”
“Sounds like a girl in love,” said her mother’s voice. Mr. Evans looked up brightly at his wife, who stood in the door way smiling.
“Do you really think so?” he said delightedly. He looked at Lily. “Is it true?”
Out of her depth on the subject of her own feelings, Lily sputtered,
“I-I don’t know! He is smart, and talented; he is on the good side, you know; against Lord Voldemort…”
“Lily,” Olivia Evans interrupted gently, coming and sitting on the corner of the bed, taking Lily’s hand in her own, “I know you think all that is what we want to hear as your parents; but really, truly, all we care about is your happiness. I know you: you’re a girl who follows your heart. So learn what’s in your heart now that your head has done its work.”
It was then that Lily realized that she could not imagine spending the rest of her life with anyone else.
that was a really good 1st chapter and i liked it a lot! are you going to go through all seven years of hogwarts? so there will be seven volumes? well, i hope that you can update soon because i cant wait 2 c wut happens next!!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm really relieved that someone likes it. :) Don't worry, the next chapter's in line. Yes! There should be seven volumes. Phew! I get tired just thinking about it. Thanks again for reviewing!
Summary: When Severus screams an unforgivable word, Lily is horrorstruck. Her best friend has just completely turned on her, and stranger still, she comes to a revelation that crushes her. But she has to stand up for herself. This cannot continue, unless…
This is AshTonks of Ravenclaw House. Please enjoy!
wow that was really good! you did a gr8 job with lily's thoughts and it seemed really realistic and in character! gr8 job! i give it two thumbs up =D
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! I was worried about posting this as my first fic, cuz I thought "what if no one thinks about it the same way I do?" A lot of people think that he was just a friend to her and that she was just tired of him at that point, but I just can't see her that way! Lily would never have put up with him for that long if he didn't mean something to her. And I hate when people change the way characters act, so i took very careful steps in writing. Thanks again for reading my first fic!!!! Keep up with me cuz I'll be posting other stuff soon hopefully!
Summary: To prove her loyalty to the her master's cause, Bellatrix Lestrange will go to any length. And killing Meda's daughter? That was now a personal challenge...
Wow! that was really amazing and you did a gr8 job on Bellatrix! that story was creepy and really sad... but sooooo good! i absolutely loved every bit of it! poor tonks! her aunt was out to get her! i really wish she and remus lived through the final battle and teddy would have the coolest parents ever! well gr8 job 2 thumbs up!! =D
Author's Response: Yes, I too wish they had survived the war. But, well, I have a feeling Bella was indeed out to get Tonks because she felt the young woman's existence was a personal insult to her or something. She's a little crazy, after all. In any case, I wanted to show that Tonks had fought her and even got the better of her. *sigh* I am glad you liked the story. Thanks for the lovely review. You really made my day!
Summary: When a potion goes horribly wrong, Professor Snape is transformed and seemingly trapped in his fifteen-year-old body. Much to his disgust he finds himself enrolled into Harry Potter's fifth year, forced to hide his true identity. Girls, drama and teenage angst do not bode well with Severus. (complete, written before OotP)
ooo! very intense and i cant wait to see what happens next!!
Author's Response: the fic is complete but mugglenet doesn't like my lengthy chapters. you can read the entire thing here: www.the-potions-masters-nephew.com
One day Sirius finally has enough of his family and he decides to leave them all behind.
Inspired by the song On My Own from Three Days Grace.
wow this was really good! i particularly enjoyed the flashback! i thought it was well-written and very believable. I always wished that reg was a gryffindor and that he was as awesome as sirius... but i can only hope! do update soon!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I had a lot of fun writing the flashback to I'm glad that you enjoyed it. I can't tell you how happy I am that you thought it was believable. I had a bit of trouble making it believable so I'm glad that it is now. Oh, this is only a one-shot so it's only going to have this one chapter. Thank you for reading and reviewing!
Summary: A Halloween prank turns against James and Sirius - not once, but twice.
hahahah! that was pretty funny! i would love 2 see what they do to get back at them!
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and laughing! I'm glad you enjoyed it - I have no idea what they do to get back at them yet, but a Sleep Walking Curse and a Repelling Charm could make it interesting, lol. Thanks for leaving a review, I appreciate it (especially after a long morning!) ~Gina :)
Summary: After a request from Albus Dumbledore, Remus Lupin faces his past and the long buried memories of his friend, Sirius Black.
Will these memories bring comfort or pain? Can he find the truth in a pile of old photographs or just find more questions?
I do not own anything you 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.
This story is set the end of August, 1994 when Albus Dumbledore asks Remus to teach at Hogwarts. As I was writing this, I had another lightbulb moment surrounding the picture of the original Order of the Phoenix. Remus just has the wrong person as the guilty party.
this was really well written and i liked it a lot! i never cinsidered Sirius to be jealous of James and Lily! interesting... well great story!
Summary: Running ragged during his sixth year from the stress of following orders of wizards much darker and more ruthless than he for fear of death, Draco Malfoy trips right over Ginny Weasley, and finds something he never thought possible: A moment of peace.
that was very good and i liked it a lot! my favorite part was with scorpius... hes so cute! =D
Summary: Because Tracey Davies wants nothing to do with her brother Roger, she avoids Ravenclaw House. But will she survive in Slytheirn? And is survival even what matters?
This is a really good and interesting story! I really like the Slytherin perspective! Please update soon!
Author's Response: Thank you. The story is finished, so updating will be fast. I just hope you have the stomach for the Slytherins' sick frame of mind.
this was such a good story and definitely going on my favorites! i loved every chapter and every character and just about everything in the whole story! it was wonderful! i hope to see another story by you again soon! =D
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I know it's risky to write about an unsympathetic main character, so I'm glad Tracey's adventures appealed to you. GhV
Summary: It's Christmas time at Hogwarts, but Severus Snape is not feeling the holiday cheer. As he patrols the castle late at night, his mind wanders to the memory of a Christmas long ago.
this was really cute and i loved it! i hope you win! =D
Author's Response: Thank you! The results of the contest have not been announced yet, but I expect they will be quite soon. Glad you liked it.
Summary: [He] walked a little taller that day. We had to tip our hats to him. He was lucky she hadn't beat the crap out of him. We wouldn't have blamed her. What he'd done was sneaky, rotten and low... and cool. Not another one among us would've ever in a million years... even for a million dollars had the guts to put the move on the lifeguard. He did. He had kissed a woman, and he had kissed her long and good. - The Sandlot
haha that was funny!
Author's Response: I try ;) Sometimes it works out. haha
Summary: You have been waiting for that one moment of joy for your whole life. That one moment is all that you have ever wanted. Then it passes you by and all hope is lost.
that was really good and really sad. i really liked the style that you wrote this with, i think it went nicely with the story. good job! =)
Author's Response: Thank you, and I'm glad that you like the style. That is the only way I know how to write a story without getting tenses wrong. Thank you so much for readiing and reviewing.
Summary: Claudia is an American transwoman who at the age of seventeen performed a spell that transitioned her from her male body to the woman she always was in heart and mind. And yet, the wizarding world viewed her changed body as a disguise, and whenever she walked through a magical security system that removed disguises, she found herself once again in a man’s body. This is the story of her battle with Magical Law for change in the view and treatment of the Wizarding Transgender Community.
Rated 6-7th years for controversial content, mild profane language, mild sexual content, and mild violence.
While I am aware that transgenderism is a controversial topic, I want to make it clear that any hateful, discriminatory, or derogatory comments are not welcome in the reviews.
this seems like it will be a very interesting story! im looking forward to reading more =)
Summary: It is time for Lily to make a decision.
I am ron lover of Gryffindor writting for the MWPP class on the Beta Boards.
That was really good! I liked it a lot!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for reading and reviewing!
Summary: The whoosh of a speeding Bludger was followed by the scream of a female voice.
Slytherin Chaser Armis Berkley was knocked off her broom, and she fell through the air.
James Potter, Gryffindor Chaser, gripped his broom and sped towards the falling body, even though he knew he’d never reach her in time.
Severus Snape blanched. Berkley always pestered him in the common room, asking him to help her with Charms homework.
Sirius Orion Black jumped up from his seat as the rest of the spectators did. A single obscene curse escaped his lips.
Peter Pettigrew prayed. Dear God, please don’t…no…no…
Lily Evans gasped as an odd monotonous sound rang in her ears.
Remus John Lupin shuddered involuntarily. DUMBLEDORE!
This is hestiajones of Hufflepuff writing for the final in the MWPP class on the Beta Boards. This story has just been nominated for a QSQ in the Best Marauder Era category. :D Thanks!
DISCLAIMER: So not J.K.Rowling.
that was really good!! i really liked the part where sirius said that he would want to laugh at death, which he did. that made me sad. but it was really good and i absolutely loved it!
Author's Response: Glad you liked it. Thanks for the review! :D
Summary: A glimpse into the everyday lives of your favourite Marauders. In which Peter is not Sirius' mummy, James daydreams of lunch, and Remus just honestly can't stand his ex-girlfriend. I am LilyLunaPotter of Hufflepuff, and this is my final for MWPP class Autumn 2009.
that was very good! i love marauder era and i think you did a really good job with the characterization and avoiding cliches. great job and keep writing! =D
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm really glad you thought I avoided cliches, since that's what the class was about that this is the final for. It's good to know I learned something. :) ~LiLu
Summary: James Potter and Lily Evans just started dating. Here is their little prank on the students of Hogwarts! A songfic to "Take Me or Leave Me" from the musical RENT. Slightly AU.
aww i thought that was cute and a lurvley piece of song-fic fluff! I have not seen RENT... yet. I do know that song, though and I thought you did a great job of mixing it into a story about my absolute FAVE shipping :) great job and I thought it was pretty funny, too!
