Bio:
I am an obsessed Harry Potter fan who, according to one friend, "needs rehab." Hehe. I like canon-compliant stories and pairings, especially Romione, which is probably evident from my stories.

You will notice I don't use British spellings. I always strive to accurately portray British culture in my fics and have my characters (and JK's) behaving in culturally appropriate ways. But spelling and punctuation are tools of the writer, and I'm an American writer. :) I always feel incredibly pretentious when I use British spellings (if it's required for a challenge)--LOL.

Right, just wanted to let you know where I'm coming from in case you are annoyed that I spell it color instead of colour. Hehe.

Sibling Rivalry by ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 5]

Summary:

This was the year. This was the year that Puddlemere United and Keeper Roxanne Weasley were going all the way.

One problem: her brother Fred might have something to say about that... while playing for the opposition.

I really enjoyed this, Jess. I've only read a couple of the entries, but I'm quite glad I'm not judging this thing. Roxanne and Fred were both well-drawn, and I liked their relationship very much, particularly the end, when she denied meaning the words she'd obviously meant. I believe my brother and I would have behaved in a similar manner.

Good luck in the challenge!

Author's Response:

Haallloooo, Lori!

I suppose I took what I know about being competitive and what I know about sports and meshed them together with my fave fan fic genre. :D It's not anything like Wild Card, but it has a different sort of appeal, I guess, lol.

Thank you for reading and reviewing.:)

Forces of Nature by Equinox Chick
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 17]

Summary: In the midst of battle, and after that kiss, Ron knew he loved Hermione. He'd never said the words, but she knew.

Didn't she?

This story was inspired by a song called Forces of Nature by the Backstreet Boys. This pairing and that group are the favourites of Amanda (ahattab) who is celebrating her birthday today.

Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling and have never even seen a backstreet boy.

GAHHHHH! You are killing me! :D Why, oh, why do most of my favorite writers so rarely write Romione--WHY!?

This is utter LOVE. Your Ron is just how I imagine him at this time--you've found the perfect balance between his hard-won maturity and the one who rarely says the right thing and is nervous about messing things up.

I loved their first time being after a funeral, and especially this funeral, after what Hermione said about how Colin was like her... perfect. And doing those same protective spells, but not because of fear. I love it! I even love that you capitalized the word Fallen. It adds to its importance, and I think that worked really well.

Totally nonsensical review, but you must have GOT that I completely adored this. Right into my favorites it goes. (Happy Birthday, Amanda!!)

Author's Response: Thank you, Lori. I don;t write Romione very often (if at all) so I'm staggered by the response to this fic. I'm glad that you, as Ron's lawyer, thought his portrayal was good - that meansd a lot. Thanks again ~Carole~

What a fun and interesting premise, Jess. I usually sympathize with people who are struggling to gain the upper hand over their unruly toddler, but with Smith... I'm sort of cheering for Cameron to make him miserable, at least for a couple of chapters. ;)

Can't wait to see where you take this. I liked it!

Author's Response:

Well, it's always good to give guys like him their comeuppance in a manner where they can't weasel out of it. And yeah, I cheered when my plot bunny farm concocted this idea. It's nice to twist some antagonist knickers. :D

Thanks for reading and reviewing one of my, er... not many family friendly fics, hehe.

I am sitting here grinning from ear to ear!! What a wonderful proposal, and you even surprised me... I think Hermione caught on faster than I did. Ha! I love that he has not shared any of this with Harry and I love that Hermione did not actually make that tart. The whole thing being over breakfast was lovely, and I could sort of see the whole thing even without the information about setting and what they were doing, etc. Well, done.

You are so sweet to take time to write this for me and I just adore it, Gina!

Oh, I forgot... I love that he proposed just by talking to her, and that he kept blurting stuff out but still never came off as if he was messing it up or being unintelligent. And three cheers for Hermione loving the proposal... she gets him, and so its all good with her.

LOVE IT! *squishes*

Author's Response: You are quite welcome, Lori! I'm glad you liked it, even if was short. It came to me rather quickly. I can "see" it all as well, and of course whenever I do these dialogue things I can "hear" them too. I think they are fun to try so I'm glad it worked. I hope you are having a great day! One more happy birthday - and thanks for the lovely review!! ~Gina :)

My toddler is giving me strange looks as I sit here giggling, my face getting closer and closer to the monitor with every paragraph. Carole, this is just brilliant! You should cast movies or something, because you've picked all the right people for all the right parts. The dialogue has just the right feel (you used YAR!), and I could honestly see this thing playing out in all the same rooms as were used in the movie. At times, I was even visualizing it in black and white.

Roger the dodger, "all performance and no substance", her attempt to say Gryffindor, the Sean/Seamus joke... there was just too much to love about this.

I love your Astoria, and everyone really. Nice use of Lisa Turpin in the role of Liz (probably my favorite character)... that worked really well. I hope there is at least someone else out there who knows the movie enough to see how amazing this really is, though I suspect you will get plenty of love even without knowing. My only complaint is that you have cast and written Draco in such a way as to make him irrestible, even to me. *shock and alarm* Hehe.

I adore this. Thank you so much for thinking of me and for taking the time to work your brilliance on a movie we mutually love. I'm dropping it right into my favorites. Thanks again! And *hugs*!

Author's Response: If I tell you that this was my fourth attempt at a birthday fic for you after two appalling Romiones and then a Neville/Hannah that failed to get off the ground, will you forgive me for making Draco a bit less evil? Basically, once I'd remembered the fact that you loved that film as much as I did, then the story wrote itself. Thing was, i couldntt see anyone else but Astoria as Tracey Lord, so I had to make Draco more redeemable. I keep singing High Society now. Just a shame I couldn't get Uncle Willy in the story *sigh* .

Thank you so much for the review and I am pleased you enjoyed it. ~Carole~

Aw, Jess, my birthday just keeps on giving! :D I adored this, and I think it is so cool that you chose Neville/Hannah. Honestly, they have become my second OTP over the last year or so, and I love thinking about how they might have got together.

What a clever idea to have him help save her business--its exactly the kind of thing he would do for someone, especially a friend. I like your characterization of them both: Hannah is so hard working and has sort of lost herself in her exhaustion. ;( And Neville... dear heavens, girl, he is swoon-worthy!! Loved the elf gazing up into his eyes and all the things he said. And the best bit of that first scene was when the knight in shining armor walked out and stumbled over the furniture. How delightfully Neville!

"The sheer amount of worry in his voice as he said her name was her undoing."

... and mine as well, I assure you. :) Thanks so much for this, Jess. I knew it already, but you've reinforced the fact that you write canon very well.

Author's Response:

I've actually been sitting on this fic for a while. I had the first 800 or so words done but no chance to finish it. But then in lurking every introduction thread known to man that you've ever posted and some stalkery assistance from our f-list, I found that you liked Neville/Hannah. It made me overjoyed, I will admit. I really wanted to finish this story, and gifting it to you was the perfect push I needed.

I will admit it freely -- I have been where Hannah was in the beginning of the story. I remember a number of nights of sitting on the floor in my restaurant and wishing the place would burn down so I could go home. I wanted someone to rescue me. Had BAMF Neville been my saviour, I would've died in ecstasy, lol.

Anywho, happy *very* belated birthday, and I'm glad I could extend the fun for you. :)

Bookworm! I read this again today and was completely befuddled that I had not yet reviewed it when I distinctly remember doing so. ??? Then I tracked down your live journal post, and realized THAT was where I left my comments. Hehe. I really am getting old!

I just thought this was so much fun. :) As I mentioned before, I always imagine that both Ron and Hermione suffered from nightmares after the events of DH, and that Harry (for anyone who cares) was finally relieved of them. So I liked that it was a nightmare that woke her, and that Ron knew the details of it without even asking her.

"Pulling her close, Ron rested his chin on her head and, resisting the temptation to point out the similarities between her dream and what had once been his reality, he stared at their daughter’s tiny form."

This was my favorite part, and great minds really do think alike because I have almost used this exact scenario before... hehe. But truly, it's the kind of thing she would dream about, and when she tells him, he would certainly think about how that was what he really did have to endure. *sigh* I love them so much. ;)

I do think family would have been the reason Ron left the auror dept, though I also imagine that at some point, he would feel he had done enough there or gotten it out of his system or whatever... and not wanted to spend the rest of his life fighting. I agree with the other reviewer who pointed out how important family is to Ron. Being around for them would have been a powerful motivator.

Anyway, as you can see, I did enjoy this so much. You were such a sweetie to take the time to write it for me, and I'm glad you have been rewarded with lots of reviews. Sorry mine was so late in coming. Thanks again!

Author's Response: Lori! <3

I'm glad you liked your birthday present enough to read it (and review it) twice! XD I didn't know you'd used almost the same scenario -- which of your stories is it in? *wants to read it*

Hello there. :) I said I would watch for this, and here it is. Congratulations on your first fic. I see in your response to the other review that you also write your chapters out of order. I suffer from the same malady... hehe.

I am not a Draco fan, but I think this is a good start. My favorite thing about it is the description of the Dark Mark actually being burned onto his skin, and how his future became clearer as the lines of the mark did. That whole bit of description was very haunting and sad, which I think is what you were going for. It's a very creepy scene, and you wrote that well. My only hesitation is that I think Draco would have been more scared/nervous during this ceremony, especially with his parents not present (or were they?). But that is not canon--it is only my guess, and I am the last person on earth to trust when it comes to Draco's characterization. LOL.

So well done, and yay for getting your first fic up. I will look for more chapters when you have them. But you must warn me if this is going to turn into Dramione... I would not be able to take it. LOL.

Take care, Lori

Author's Response: Lori - Thanks so much for your review! Still a novice at this fanfic thing, I'm coming to realize I crave reviews more than chocolate. Better for the figure, I suppose. I appreciate your willingness to follow along my Draco journey when it sounds like you would normally run the other way. If it's any comfort, I promise not to write any Dramione into the story. While I'm comfortable writing scenes that didn't appear in the books, I have not yet reached the point that I feel I can betray the characters I love so much. Hermione and Draco??? Nah. Her heart belongs to one man. To address your hesitation in regards to Draco's lack of fear in the scene, I believe this moment to be, perhaps, his peak of confidence. His dad was in Azkaban for the recent part he played in the Department of Mysteries fiasco. I would assume Draco was furious about this and, of course, blamed Harry and Dumbledore for it all. He was choosing to enlist, choosing to fight against the forces that put his dad in prison. I also think he was determined to prove himself to his father, whom he appears throughout the books never to completely satisfy. Draco asked for this (my interpretation ... though other fanfic authors would disagree) from Voldemort, and I think cocky little Draco had no doubt, at least at this point, that he was doing the right thing. Were his parents present? Well, his dad was in Azkaban. At one point, I had a bunch of Death Eaters watching this scene, but, quite frankly, they got in the way, so I got rid of them. I've written a piece to address Narcissa's part in this in chapter two, but that might get axed as well. Who knows. And don't sell yourself short on Draco characterization. From your own stories, you obviously seem to have great insight into her characters. And we all (myself included) only know what Rowling gives us anyway and interpret from there. Thanks again, Lori. I truly value any feedback or insights you have to share with me. Thestral Wings

Just Enough by ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor

Summary:

The funeral of Andromeda Tonks was a strange affair, thought Lily Potter. It was hard to understand how so many people could send her off into the next life yet seem to mourn her so little. Or maybe it was just a stark reminder of what it truly meant to die.

But someone understood how she really felt, if only just a little.

 

This fic is a sort of sequel to one of my other stories, All the Time in the World. It's not necessary to read it, but allusions to events do occur.

And how about a Happy Birthday to Olivia/Apollonious! :D

This is very good, Jess. I like how you have characterized everyone, particularly the Potters as a family (though you know I like to imagine Harry and Ginny a bit happier than they are here). Still though, I liked Lily's observations of her brothers and her parents... they felt like an average family, but close enough that all the behavior/thoughts she guesses at them having feel accurate to me as a reader.

Poor Teddy. The first mention of his death made me suck in my breath. Just so sad that he died so young. Is that in the other fic? I should read it as well.

I enjoyed reading this very much. And a happy belated birthday to Miss Olivia as well!

Author's Response:

Sigh... poor Teddy. I didn't want to kill him, but it's something that sprang into my head during VoJP and just stuck in my brain. I even tried inserting him into the story, but it wouldn't go. So, therefore, I ended up writing All the Time in the World (one-shot) to direct questions about the matter. It was super heartbreaking to write, but it felt like it had to be done. Consequently, it was actually the part that I had pegged as where Harry and Ginny started to have marital problems.

This originally started out as a more sombre Scolily, but through it all, the dynamics sort of shifted to the mutual understanding route. I think it works better that way, but it *could* be the start of something more.

Thank you for stopping in, Lori. Good luck with the ill offspring!

Wow. This is the most disturbing fic I have ever read. That said, I think your writing is so, so good. You have a very straightforward style, with shorter sentences, and I found it so effective.

The characterization of everyone in this is so well done. Is she an canon character? Or totally OC? Either way, she functions as an OC and you have drawn her so well.

There is enough emotional upheaval in this to keep Oprah busy for weeks and weeks, haha. Brilliant writing.

Author's Response: Is it really that disturbing? It's definitely not the most disturbing thing I think I've ever written, but having said that I'm pleased it made an impression and that you thought it was well written. It's probably one of the stories I've written which I spent the least time writing, if quite a bit of time thinking about.

She isn't a canon character, but in my personal canon she's Pansy Parkinson's mother. I have a plot bunny knocking around my head about Pansy's younger sister, so this probably won't be the last I write about Florence.

I'm glad you--if not enjoyed it found it interesting and well written- thank you for reviewing and for the SBBC controversial fics recommendation. Alex

Hey Natalie! So I was nosing around and realized I'd somehow missed the last two chapters of this! WHAT?

Your portrayal of all the characters has just been so good, but especially Draco. He's believable as his old self, and yet, the redemption you've written for him has been so well done that I am buying into that as well. I especially loved the second-to-last chapter, where he just tells her (so refreshing). That seems to never happen in fanfiction (or original fiction either, for that matter). It's always a ton of game-playing, and it just fit for Draco to not go that route. He's got way bigger things in his past to be ashamed of to worry about her knowing the truth, even when he thinks she has a boyfriend. Really good insight there, I thought.

Anyway, I just enjoyed the ride so much with this fic. Well done, and congratulations again on the QSQ win. :)

Ooohh.... you know how much I loved that drabble about the bit in the garden. I like the idea that they had been forced to marry and both refused, only to fall for each other of their own accord. Well, as much as anyone controls who they fall for. ;)

You've written Draco very well. I like him like this, guilty as ever and suffering for it, but prone to redemption if it should come his way.

This is a silly little thing, but thank you for letting the plump girl be attractive. I almost never read that sort of thing, and it was quite refreshing. Is she canon? Or an OC of yours? I like her, and the idea that Draco suddenly has need of Crabbe's friendship and is even jealous of him in this regard.

I will be following this one, dear. And not just because it has my name on it. Well done. And thanks!! I love it!

Author's Response: Chloe Pucey is an OC. :D I think you'll like her; there is certainly a lot more of her in the later chapters.

Thank you, Lori, for giving me the encouragement and incentive to expand this. It was one of my better Brawl submissions, and I did wonder if I should write more of it, but the motivation from you was responsible for making me take it up right away. Plus, the birthdays! Hehehe.

I am happy you love it! I certainly hope you'll enjoy the rest. I think it will turn out a bit differently from what everyone is expecting, but I am trying my best with it. Thanksssss for the review!

I can't do quotes since I can't remember which chapter the lines were in, but I absolutely love the style of your writing with this fic. It's by no means funny, and yet once in a while, you throw in a line with such delicious snark that it makes me smile.

Can't wait to see what happens next. I've hardly read all of your fics, but I think that writing-wise, you seem to be at the top of your game with this one. Bring on the next chapter, dear.

Author's Response: YAY. I have to admit, my writing does look better here than some of my other fics, where I can clearly see I struggled. Don't know why, I am not really a fan of Draco either. But I suppose I like Draco/Astoria too much. :D You need to write us some Dracp yourself! And I hope you liked the ending.

I so fangirl your mad plotting skills, Gina. Love what you are doing with this, and the involvement of all these bad guys coming to the front.

Oh, and I have a message for you. James and Lily said to tell you they will be fine hanging out in the Gryff Common Room for a bit while you work on getting Ron and Hermione straightened out and reunited. They are very patient people, you know... the future Potters. :) So there you go. Get wrting, dear.

Love this!!

Author's Response: Thanks so much, Lori. I'm glad you enjoyed this chapter, even though it was a lot of background. As for KK...why ever don't you trust her?? Hee hee. Your message from J/L is highly amusing, but you know me and my obsession. They would probably love it if I left them alone, but I can't seem to help it. But there's not too much left to this one so hopefully it won't be too long. Thanks so much for the lovely review! ~Gina :)

What? Posted for over 24 hours and no reviews yet? I actually snuck away from my family gathering the other night to see what was going on around here and squealed with delight when I saw this had been updated. I even typed out a very thoughtful review, only to screw something up and discover it had not posted. GRR!

I am still loving this, Gina! And oh, how the plot thickens! I didn't see Hermione's abduction coming at all, and my skin was crawling at the mention of grey eyes--oh dear. And what of the backstory you keep hinting about? Has he kidnapped her before? You have me intrigued now, and regarding more than the R/Hr ship.

I know the Australian details have been bogging you down, but really, your research adds so much to the credibility and believability of this story. It just takes your writing up a notch, and helps me visualize everything as it is happening. It adds authenticity.

I will admit I paused a moment at her thoughts when she said she couldn't put people in danger simply because she couldn't say no to a pretty ring. You had already said she loved Ron, and the next paragraph detailed that beautifully, but it was hard for me to think of the ring being the thing about the proposal that was so difficult to resist. Does that make sense? It's no big deal though... just my opinion. ;)

I'm loving this. Did I already mention its my favorite chaptered R/Hr of all time? Yes? Oh. :D Well, it still is.

Bring on chapter five!

Aw, sniff. :( I'm so bummed this is over, but a lovely ending it was. I like that Harry was as involved in things as he was, that is a lot how I imagine these relationships, especially if Ginny isn't around for some reason.

Even though you didn't plan it that way originally, I like the idea of them staying for a couple of months in Australia before returning to England. They were both willing to live in the other country, but I agree that they belong in England. This was the perfect ending for this fic... love the spontaneous proposal!

Well done, Gina!

Author's Response: Lori! A very belated thank you for the review! I really appreciate you sticking with this story after a year and consulting on it so much! I think it was even you who inspired me to try a Ron/Hermione story! :) I'm glad you enjoyed the ending, I knew it had to end with a proposal but boy it was hard getting there! I really enjoyed writing this, even though it took me a while, so thank you for all your lovely reviews! ~Gina :)
