Bio:
I am a 17-year-old male. I absolutely LOVE J.K. Rowling's writing style and her amazing ability to create complex, believable characters and plots. I am very much influenced and inspired by her writings, and dream of becoming a great novelist, just like her.

There's a story here for most everybody with a bit of imagination. For fluffy, clean romance, read "Woes of a Midget Owl." For more G-rated fun, read "Buckbeak's Ferret Dinner" or "Voldemort: A Fable." "Under the Emerald Spell Light" is for those who appreciate tragedy. For teens and more mature audiences I have written "Heat" and other stories that don't appear on this site. Or, if you're very flexible, you may read them all!

Read my novel-length fic, "The Scarlett Letter", on ffnet and fictionalley.

Coming in January (I'm too busy to post until then): "Dumbledore, Please Explain Your Twisted Logic!" A comedy of dramatic proportions, literally. Stay posted, because I'll soon put up a plot summary and more info. I've already started writing it.

I try to write the most creative stories possible, though just as well-written to match it up. Tell me if I've succeeded or not!

Whee, what a lovely fic! We need more R-rated humor fics on Mugglenet. If you do a search for all the humor fics rated Professor, you'll only find one page of them. But I'm putting one up soon, so I'll join your numbers.

Anyway, hilarious sex talks! Really funny to read, really nice. Your style was nice, your dialog was fun, etc. I just love double entendres, by the way. "Your first time is like riding a broom..." LOL!

Ubertastic job!

 

Highly Improbable by Vocalion
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 478]

Summary: COMPLETE. A woman visits Hogwarts expressly to meet Severus Snape. Her eccentric aunt led her to believe that he was the kindest, handsomest man to ever grace the earth. What will she do when she discovers the awful truth - let a few minor imperfections stand in the way of romance? Highly Improbable has been recognized by the Multifaceted Awards as Winner in the Laughter Category and Runner-Up in the Identity Category (Best Original Character), and also by MNFF's first annual Quicksilver Quills Awards. Thanks, MuggleNet!

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! This story was very funny, very touching, and very unique. Clancy was such a neat character, and a much better match for Snape than Hermione!!!:) This pairing is especially refreshing after the countless predictable, boring romances I read in fanfiction. I especially LOVED your anagrams!!! Those were really cool! Keep on writing!!!!!

Author's Response: Thank you! Yes, romance is only interesting if it's unpredictable. :-)

Heeheehahahaha! I love this story! Very well written, and even better than "Hormones"! Great job, and absolutely wonderful humor! You are really a very great writer! I knew Ginny couldn't really be pregnant--but so did we all, and that's the whole point. It was great fun finding out what it REALLY was! Whee!!

 

Summary: This story may be read separately, or as a companion piece and/or missing scenes from my other fic, HIGHLY IMPROBABLE. It was written in response to a challenge. I have assigned this an R rating, but it is very tame and contains much more silliness than sex. SUMMARY: What is the one thing that will generally persuade a man to do something that he really doesn't want to do? Severus Snape may be an extremely powerful wizard, but he is still a man!

Hmmm... good try. The meter really isn't correct, so the limericks are uneven. And that one limerick that gave it an "R-rating"... it wasn't R. "D***" and "pouf" are really only PG-13 words, especially since they're used nonsexually here.

Well, I DO love Hermione a whole lot, and I'm more like her than any other HP character (at least, that's what all the tests say), but I do like making fun of her bushy hair and large front teeth. :D

ALBUS AND MINERVA by Wiccan
Rated: Professors [Reviews - 71]

Summary: Yes, yes I know...the visual is enough to turn you off! (Run screaming and gagging in total disgust! Bleegggghhh!) Alright...get your minds out of the gutter! There will be no wrinkled old bodies wrestling and sweating in the throes of passion here. These are NOT hormonally driven teenagers. Rating is for subject matter only (I mean they actually mention the word…SEX! Horrors!). I have just often wondered if there wasn't something going on between these old fogies. JKR seems to hint at an intimate sort of playfulness between them and I decided to investigate that aspect. This is a one-shot complete character analysis. I hope you enjoy it and it doesn't give anyone nightmares. Let me know how you're sleeping...

Author's Response: Thank you so very much! I loved writing their snarky, teasing conversation. Too many \'youngins\' can\'t get over the \'old folk still have urges\' idea. I am so glad you liked it!

WOW, this was amazing!! It should have so won over "Raconteur"!! In fact, it was probably even better than the other runner up "A Ghost Story" (which was also better than "Raconteur"). The rhymes were amazing, but the rhythm was even BETTER!! Amazing! Very few people have good rhythm. I myself do sonnets (I have one on this site called "Sirius's Azkaban"), but this poem here is an even greater achievement than one sonnet. Seriously, I've never seen better in fanfiction! Please keep it up, and you may become the next Shakespeare :D

 

Afterglow by Madame Moony
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 4]

Summary:

And if you could see, what's come over me, then you would know.
'Cause I'm walking free, the wind at my back...
Bathed In Afterglow.

-Vanessa Carlton
~*~
Based on the song "Afterglow", by Vanessa Carlton, it is the story of Remus Lupin and the few moments in time after the death of James, Lily, Peter, and the imprisonment of Sirius Black. As Remus struggles through these difficult times, a symbol of light in the form of his last true friend, Sam Tyler, emerges in the darkness. Now, Sam must struggle to pull Remus from his depths of grief and loss, and hope to gain his heart in the process.
~*~
This is a one-shot, rated PG-13 only because of the fact that Remus is 'under the influence' through the entire thing. I would rather say something more like "Rated PG-11", but there is no such rating... *sigh* Warned AU for my OC, and warned DAA for Remus's little Firewhisky spree. I would also like to add that there is a small mention of suicide, though not enough to make me place a warning on the fic. R/R!

Good story! I feel so sorry for Remus! You did a wonderful job. Keep on writing!

Author's Response: Thank you, Islander! I always love to get a review saying "Good Job". It's so encouraging. I truly wanted to make any reader feel sorry for Remus... In fact, that was the true basis of the story, and not the romance. But, I guess having a dash of romance on the side wasn't a bad idea afterall. ^.~ Thanks again!

That was such a great story! Very sad, and quite well written. But we don't know who those two people were! I think it's Ginny and Harry, maybe. . . Have you read the short story "The Lady or the Tiger?"? Well, this story is just as infuriating as that one. In a good way, of course!! Good job!

Author's Response: Nope (Am I refering to not having read "The Lady or the Tiger" or am I saying, nope it's not Ginny and Harry......or is it? He he he, i wouldn't tell you anyway... MWHAHAHAHA!)

This was such a wonderful story! I liked it even more than your other one-shots! Especially at the end when Snape killed himself--it was so sad! And how his mother was the only person who cared for him, not Dumbledore. That's even sadder. Very well-written, and very engaging. And to think I wouldn't have read any stories if you hadn't left me a review on my own stories :) It just goes to show how good it is to leave reviews on the stories you read :P

Author's Response: You think it\'s better than all my other one-shots? Thanks for that comment, but if you\'ve read my bio, you\'ll notice that SF is my first story here (and not the best one, in my opinion, at least). Thanks again for your compliments and your other reviews. :D

Amor Non Mutuus by Dumbledore Prince
Rated: Professors [Reviews - 16]

Summary: “Amor Non Mutuus” is Latin for “Unrequited Love”.

This is the story of the tragic love life of Merope Gaunt, Voldemort’s mother. It is told in first person from Merope’s point of view. She has deep feelings for Tom Riddle Senior, the son of the village squire; and tries to make him fall in love with her. However, Merope learns the hard way that a “love” potion can create only a powerful obsession, not true love.

Additional warning: bad language.

I don't like it when stories don't make sense and are boring (obviously). However, this little story with Broderick Bode is quite up to task and a good read.

Aw, this is really quite a sad and sweet poem. It's sad because Ron and Hermione are dead, but sweet because Ginny's still alive. Poetry is really quite a wonderful thing: I have poem up here also, plus another that I submitted today. If you have time you can check them out (that's another good thing about poetry; it's short and it doesn't take a long time to read and review :) One quick correction: in your summary, "vanquish" is spelled with an "i", not "vanquesh". That's all. Good job!

Author's Response: Thanks! The typo should be fixed, and I\'m glad you liked it!
