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.

Friends, FuneralsÖ and Fred by FinnFiona
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 21]

Summary:

[Final warning: DH spoilers follow.] Three days after the final battle of Hogwarts, Harry must begin the painful task of attending the many funerals of the fallen. The first is perhaps the hardest, and Harry is focused on helping the Weasley family make it through the dayóbut maybe he still has a few things left to learn himself.



Authorís Note: Iíve read many a good story on the death of Fred Weasley, of whom I have always been very fond. Yet I think I needed to write my own version for that extra bit of closure. I hope you all enjoy, and maybe even experience a touch of catharsis yourselves. And as always, please leave a review! They're a huge help, and will all receive responses.

I liked this story a lot. I've heard no end of praise for your writing for a long time now, and yet, I don't think I've had the pleasure of reading any of your work. So I skimmed the list until I saw something that might have a little Romione for me, and dug right in.

Ron left. I hate stories in which Ron leaves in a rage, and yet, here, you really sold me on the scenario. He's such a hothead, and when something threatens someone he loves, that characteristic multiplies exponentially. I can see him refusing to be a part of the wedding and walking out. I kept wondering how long he'd been gone. You managed to keep that under wraps for awhile, and I must say, I'm glad it wasn't years. I can't see Hermione forgiving it so easily, in that case. But five months was a nice choice... long enough to feel like it might be over for good, and yet still believable that they might be able to work it out.

There's no way to comment on everything I enjoyed about this fic, but I will mention one thing that really stuck out to me. You have a strong sense of place in your writing, and it grounds your story very well. When you described him sitting on "her couch" and her in "his chair" and the small victory that was in HErmione's mind, it was character development disguised as description! You did this over and over, with mention of the card and the photographs and the fire, and I love how beautiful it all was, how I could picture every move the characters were making in the scene. I felt like I was there. I'm a very visual writer and reader, so that is an important aspect of storytelling for me. Well done.

I also liked the way you wrote Hermione. She was all business as she went out there to forgive Ron as a way of fixing things for Rose, and yet, she can't fight the attraction and the history that is between them. I like that her feelings shift sometimes even inside a moment. Some readers don't care for that, thinking it an inconsistency, but humans are emotionally inconsistent, and that made her all the more real in this tale.

If I were going to offer any crit, I would only say that, at the very beginning, I had a hard time figuring out which lines were Hermione speaking and which were Rose. Hermione's thoughts occasionally appeared in the same line as someone else's dialogue and that threw me a bit, but I do realize this is very nitpicky.

I'd planned to read and review something tonight and I just wasn't in the mood to do it unless I knew it was going to be good. I'm so glad I finally took all those recommendations to heart, and I look forward to reading more of your work soon. Anyone who writes Ron as well as you do has a fan in me.

Wake Up by coolh5000
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 32]

Summary: Every morning Ron arrives at the shop and wakes up George with a cup of tea. One morning, however, George doesn't wake up.

This started as a 500 word drabble for my DADA class and turned into a 2000 word one-shot instead, before becoming two chapters. The prompt for my drabble was to use an overdose so be warned that this fic is not a happy one. It is actually I lot darker than I really imagine the Weasley family being after the war, but this is what came out when I started writing and I think it is possible.

please note that the warning is for attempted suicide only

An epilogue has arrived and I promise that I have now finished, though I have found this interesting to write so I may carry on with this version of the Weasley family at some point

Greetings Hannah. I'm so glad I popped onto IM just as this fic was being discussed for a few posts. I couldn't resist when I saw it was heavy on Ron, and I'm so glad I didn't try to. ;) I like the way you've characterized Ron here, and the darkness of this. Though I don't like to think of George in this state, I do think it is possible. JK has said herself that he will never really be all right again, after losing Fred. And that leaves the door open for pretty much anything. I was near to tears a couple of times, but was cheered by the appearance of Fred and the ferociity with which he set about convincing George to return and do what he cannot.

Really lovely picture here of my favorite family, broken as they must be. It was believable all around, in terms of characterization, but particularly Arthur and Percy, who I always imagine coping in exactly the way you have described here.

Lovely visiting your author page... I will pop back by sometime soon. See you on IM.

 

Summary: It has been two and a half years since Fred died and George Weasley still feels the pain of loss. So when Ginny and Hermione turn up at the shop to ask him to fill in for a sick Ron at the Quidditch Winter Ball his initial response is a definite no! But Hermione’s plight, for some reason, moves him and he reluctantly agrees to partner his soon to be sister-in-law to the ball. With new robes and some dazzling dance steps, he little realises that this could be the night his life changes for the better.

Carole, I'm so glad I stumbled upon this this morning. I've been on a huge George (and subsequently, George/Ang) kick lately, and this really hit the spot. I loved the progression of his grief, how he used to hate hearing Fred's name and now needs to talk... and how the room is still so difficult to go into.

I also really enjoyed the other family relationships... how George and Hermione got on, and his conversation with Harry as well.

I liked it a lot! Thanks!

Author's Response: Thank you. I like George and Angelina and get annoyed when people say they shouldn't have got married, so I'm pleased to find another fan. OOH, this was written ages ago. I think it may have been my first oneshot. Wow, I feel as if I've been here forever. Thanks agaain and I'm glad you enjoyed the story. ~Carole~

Well, I finished this at last, and wanted to post just once more and let you know how much I enjoyed it. I loved how fiesty Ron and Hermione are (just as I imagine), but I unexpectedly find myself drawn to your characterization of Draco. It's very good, and very believable.

Thanks for including the road map to all the one-shots you wrote from different perspectives... I enjoyed those very much as well. One question: when Scorpious reentered, was Rose shaking because Draco had told her what happened with her parents in the drawing room? I was very interested in that, as I've drabbled a bit on the idea myself... what it must have been like when she learned what exactly went down, particularly if she cares for Scorpious, and even more particularly if she is at Malfoy Manor when that bomb is dropped. Just curious about how you envisioned it.

Thanks again for the great read. I'll be making my way through the rest of your stuff eventually. :)

Author's Response:

Thank you for reading the story and telling me your thoughts and reactions in reviews! One of the many great things about fan fiction is you can write one shots from other characters' point of views to post along with the main story. That doesn't mean every reader will look them up, but I'm happy that you did, and that you like Draco's characterization!

I think it was a shock for Rose to find out what happened in the drawing room, that she could nod her understanding and not become angry--the person who hurt her mother is long dead, Draco's sincerely regretful, and her mother isn't holding a grudge against Scorpius about it--but while they sat calmly drinking tea, reaction set it, and Rose shook.

Is that how you imagined it, too? Do you have the drabble posted?

Carole, I just found this by way of the shiny new Hufflepuff library. I'm so glad I did, too. I had never considered Tonks' childhood, that she might have to be hidden or contained because of her abilities. Is any of this background in canon, or did you work it all out? I assume the latter, and I find it plausible, and frankly, quite brilliant. What an interesting way to connect Tonks' experience to Remus'. His werewolf arguments would hold little merit to her in these circumstances.

I also liked how she pressed him after his initial rejection. "I just want to know why the hell not?" And then again when she says it's only a dance and a kiss... it seems very like canon for her to not think ahead and be more reckless about the implications while Remus is overanalytical and worried.

I enjoyed this very much. Was this your first Remus/Tonks?

Author's Response: Hi Lori, Yes, it was my first Remus/Tonks. It inspired Apparently Asleep and this was supposed to slip seamlessly into that fic, but AA ttok on a whole new life. Tonks' background isn't canon, but I got to thinking that Metamorphmagi were unable to control themselves as babies, so what on earth would they be like as two year olds in a tantrum?! The views of Narcisa and Bellatrix on a metamorphmagus in the family, I also made up. I honestly have no idea whether they'd think it contamination or not, but I explore this much furthur in Apparently Asleep. Thanks for the review ~Carole~

Oh. My. Word. I can't even begin to express how much I loved reading this. My favorite thing in the world is a missing moments story, and even though this relationship is technical not canon... it SHOULD be! ;) And it could have been!

Your timeline is amazing... how you kept everything up with what we know was going on outside of Hogwarts with everyone else. I love every character, even Draco (God help me). I love the way you characterized him after Easter. The most sickening thing to me every time I read that chapter of DH is the thought of him sitting in that room holding his bloody wand while that happens to Hermione. I do not believe he was unaffected by it, either. He would have been different after, and I love what Blaise said to him and how he got sick.

Every time your narrative bumped up against the true canon timeline, I felt a little cheer rising up inside. Like when they knew they were still alive after Easter, and when it was announced that they escaped on a dragon... and the cheers in the RoR? I was just thinking, "Hell, yeah, they did escape on a dragon!" I love how this news empowered them. And we know that it did, but you wrote it so well.

The only thing that caused me even a moment's hesitation was Hannah's presence... as I thought she did not return to Hogwarts (after her mum died 6th year) until the final battle. But I may have that wrong. It's a small thing anyway, and I loved the interest brewing between her and Neville in this.

I don't really know what else to say... this is just wonderful! Can't wait for more!

Author's Response: Thank you very much for reading and giving me such a lovely review. I adored writing this fic and fitting it into the timeline was a personal triumph. Hannah back at Hogwarts? Well she was certainly at the Battle and I'm pretty sure she'd have had to return to Hogwarts because attendence was compulsory (especially as she was a pure-blood), so that's why I included her. Oh, and I shudder over Draco when Hermione's getting crucio'd. It must have affected him even if he didn't like her. There's one last chapter. It's with my beta, so hopefully it will be up soon. Thank you again ~Carole~

This is wonderful. I'm halfway through Our Little Secret, and took a break to come over and spend some time with my favorite character. You write him wonderfully, and am so glad you've got him as a softie under the gruff reactions. I generally steer away from Scorpious/Rose fanfic because so often Ron is portrayed as an unreasonable father who holds his hands over his ears while trustworthy people try to teach him sense. But you have written Rowling's Ron, whom I quite adore.

Can't wait to read the rest of OLS... maybe tonight!

Author's Response:

I heart you for liking Ron! When he's portrayed as stupid (when it's shown in the books he's brilliant at chess) or unable to temper his initial knee-jerk reaction to Slytherins with willingness (however reluctant!) to judge a person on individual merit, I get very put out.

So I thank you on many levels. :)

Tough week for Cho, eh? :) But to be honest, I've never had much love for her, and I do adore Katie Bell, so it works for me. Haha.

Writing for a prompt is a different animal, and I'm so glad you included your prompts so we know where this moment originated. With the prompts being "a boat" and Katie/Cedric, you managed to write a lovely little moment for them. You were wise to create a connection between the two that had nothing to do with Hogwarts, as this would have been hard to believe otherwise. Not that they couldn't have paired up, but with the tension between the Harry and Cedric camps for most of the year... it would have been less likely, in my opinion. I did wonder why they hadn't talked all year long (this takes place in June), but perhaps the answer is in that very tension between their houses. In a longer fic, I think more of an explanation would have been necessary to understand this year-long silence between good friends, but for the purpose of this moment-fic, it worked pretty well without it.

You have a lovely way with descriptive imagery that makes this a sweet little read. The boathouse and the rain and the blades of grass... really nice, atmospheric details there without being heavy-handed about it.

Some things have already been pointed out in other reviews, so I won't mention them again here. I think the only thing that made me pause was the fact that the kiss led so quickly to a decision to ditch Cho and pick up with Katie. The kiss was well done, and of course it meant something, but it just felt abrupt somehow. Perhaps if there had been an inkling of things not "being right" with Cho in his earlier musings before Katie came along? I'm not sure. We really can't know how he might have handled it, so take my words with a grain (or a pound?) of salt. After all, if he hadn't promised Katie they would be together, we wouldn't have that beautiful but tragic ending, which I think makes this fic very powerful.

This was posted about the time I first found the site, and I'm wondering now how I never read any of your stuff. I shall troll your author page soon, to rectify the matter. Lovely fic you've created for an unlikely pair.

 

Summary: Ron and Hermione have always had a special connection. But mix in a fake French girl, a handful of dares, a cup of Hogsmeade trips, half a pound of Malfoy, and a pinch of detentions, there is definitely some trouble to be anticipated.

A look into Ron and Hermione's fifth-year minds to experience the spazzness and crazyism in first person.

Disclaimer: Sadly, I am not J. K. Rowling. I'm not even famous. Heck, I only have one story up on Mugglenet. But I'm still glad I can walk into J. K.'s world. And tap-dance back out again.

I would also appreciate if NikkiSue/Nicole could mod this for me :]

I'll Pick You Up by MagEd
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 362]

Summary: Past Featured Story“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.

I don't know if I've ever taken time to leave a review or not, but I have so been enjoying this story. I get very excited when I see it has been updated. Nice chapter. I had a feeling when Lily saw Lenore on the map, and was very glad to see James and Sirius go with her... can't wait for the next chapter!

Author's Response: I don't think you ever have -- but thank you so much for reviewing now! I'm glad you're enjoying the story. I actually wrote Lily finding Lenore by herself and James finding her with Lenore, but that was way too much like Jilly's death, and I think this works much better. :)

I am still really loving this fic, and as it draws to the climax, I'm getting bummed that it will eventually be finished. :( What a brilliant way to have Rosier torture James... it was just awful to see Lily that way. I'm glad it wasn't Grace... that just did not seem right somehow. Wow, James and Voldemort... I can't wait to see what happens next.

Just FYI, a couple of times I think you had the wrong name, and it was just briefly jolting. First...

"No!" Jilly cried. "No, no, I never meant for any of this to happen! I never . . ."

I think you meant to write, Grace cried, right?

And then the same thing later...

"I lied," said Regulus, not looking his brother in the eye.

Regulus smiled. "Regulus," he said smoothly, "knows where his loyalty lies."

I assumed it was actually Rosier who smiled and made this comment.

Hope you dont' mind me pointing those out... I've made similar mistakes when editing and would truly want someone to tell me about it so I could fix it.

Enjoying this so much... you remain one of my very favorite authors on this site.

Author's Response: Haha, those would be pretty jolting. I actually mixed up Regulus and Rosier a good dozen times and I had hoped I'd caught all of them when I read through before submitting, but apparently not -- thanks very much for pointing them out! I definitely don't mind. I'm glad you like the story and consider me one of your favourite authors on the site -- that's such high praise! Having Grace be the killer definitely wouldn't have made much sense. And, oh, writing Lily act like that was much harder than I'd thought . . . it was definitely all kinds of intense and awful. Thanks for the review :) The next chapter should be up soon.

Oh, I meant to tell you the first time that I definitely did not skip the memory. I love the way you have written them, and I LOVE that Lily is the one who saved Cassie. And I LOVE that James actually fainted... totally believable in that situation, once he got to safety and it all hit him. I thought the placement of the memory after Grace's admission was just perfect, too... a gigantic moment followed by incredibly dramatic past-event, followed by the next thing, which is the worst of all. Wow.

Author's Response: Thank you! I was afraid people would think the memory boring and find the actual events in the here and now much more interesting -- I'm glad you thought it worked well in the flow of the story and that you liked how Lily was the one to save Lily; I've been waiting to reveal that twist! :)
