Hi there! Since you found my profile, let me tell you three things:
One, I don't come onto Mugglenet that often.
Two, I only read fanfiction stories because I'm too wrapped up in my own world to write any.
Three, I've got an original (?) story in the works, which is why I'm not writing any fanfiction. Hopefully this story will become a series (or several series!). But, uh, I haven't been too dedicated to the one I'm writing now...I just come up with plot ideas and other stuff for the other stories in the series...stories for the future...
That is absolutely phenominal...I loved it all. I was really surprised that Jordan became a Seer and that he got to speak to Merlin in his dreams. But that just makes the story more awesome! So, it's true that Jordan and Giorgi are married? Aw, they're so cute together!
This is really sad...yet it happens. The sort of story that (practically) makes you cry. This is lovely, with lots of meaning too. Actually, I didn't think James would ask Lily to marry him so soon, but I think it really fits with the story. The characterization was also done very well.
Hi, Schemerg_the_Impaler! I absolutely love the Potter's Pentagon series, as well as this story and The Dark Lord's Blog, the first one I ever read (of your stories). Every single one of your stories (including the wicked and HSM parodies) are so hilarious that they make me fall off my seat at least once without fail.
I KNOW this story was about Emma/Tyrone, and I sure loved them (everything Tyrone did made me fall out of my seat twice) but I honestly think Jordan and Giorgi stole the show! They are SO CUTE together! I've been addicted to Jordan from the second his name in the story, and for some reason I just can't get enough of him (does this sound like an addiction to you?). THis story only made me become even more addicted to him than I already was.
AWESOME STORY BY THE WAY! I WANT MORE JOR-JUMS!
This is a brilliant story with many different pairings all the well-known generations. A brilliant story with an excellent plot. This story is something everyone can relate to (in one way or another). I love it.
PoA era: Severus Snape takes a thoughtful stroll down Diagon Alley at the start of the Christmas holidays, but it soon turns into a quite a harrowing ordeal for our favourite Potions Master... UK English. Contains some dark humour. You have been warned!
Characters: Severus Snape, Fred Weasley, George Weasley, Ginny Weasley, Molly Weasley, Percy Weasley and (very) minor OC's.
That is such a great story. It really made me laugh.
wow, thanks! Didn't think I'd get any more reviews for this (because it's a few months old), so yours was a pleasant surprise. I'm thrilled to know it's still entertaining readers. Hope you had a really good chortle at poor Snape's expense (don't worry, I'm sure he's used to it).
Thanks for R & R-ing, you really made my day,
Kara's Aunty :)
It'll be very interesting to see what happens next...
Author's Response: It's been submitted. The chapter has been finished for a while, but I just can't seem to get it through. Hopefully it will with time! Thanks for reading and reviewing!
I like it...the only problem is that I want more and that I want to know what happens next.
Author's Response: I'm sorry! I promise I'm trying. I submitted it like, 8 times, but me and grammar, we don't along so great. I really need a beta reader... If you're one, or you know any..... it would help... a lot.... I'm really glad you like it though!
Ron Weasley is staying at Shell Cottage during the Christmas of 1997. These are the thoughts and feelings that occupy him.This is ahattab33 of Hufflepuff, and this is for the "Watching the Mirror" class on the MNFF Beta Boards.
It was nice to see how it was for Ron after he abandoned his friends in Deathly Hallows.
Author's Response: I have this thing for missing moments...I seem to have a complusive desire to fill-in-the-blanks. Thank you for the read and the review!
That's a really funny story, how Sirius kisses the professor in the end. Ha ha ha!
Author's Response: Thanks! Funnily enough, the end came as a surprise to me as well. I'm glad you enjoyed it! :)

Twins spawn from the Dark Lord himself and a daughter of an ex-Death Eater. Together they are the Youngest Death Eaters. Forced into a life because of their heritage but who are they truly? Who are they faithful to, light or dark?
Oh, I want to say a few things. Thanks for replying to my last review. I enjoyed the dose of info greatly! What I want to know is when the next chapter's come up! I'm not so patiently waiting for it!
And not only that, I also want to know whether Salazar and Silver will even go down the trapdoor and into the chambers of the Philosopher's Stone. Another thing: can you please show what Silver and Destiny-and even Drake, if possible-see in the Mirror of Erised? And if you don't, can you please tell me? As long as it doesn't spoil the whole story, of course!
Well, the next chapter is describing Christmas Day and Destiny's birthday and I already wrote a little more than half of the chapter so it should be up in a few days I hope.
As for the twins going down the trap door, sorry but that won't happen. Now that Salazar and Silver have decided not to get the Stone, they won't want to bother risking their necks for nothing. But, I will let you know that someday the trio will go down the Chamber of Secrets. So, they do get to explore some of Hogwarts secrets not many get to.
Now, to be honest, I never did consider what the others would actually see in the mirror but after you asked, I sat down and thought about it and I can tell you now.
Silver - At this moment in her life, Silver would see her brother on her right and Destiny on her left. They all would look like power is being emitted out of them. Also, behind the trio would be faceless people who appear to be looking up to them. Sort of like the trio are the leaders of their own group. However, note, there would be no sign of light or dark, just general power because at this point, Silver doesn't discriminate good versus evil. "There is no good or evil, only power!"
Destiny - Destiny would see Severus standing on her right side with his hand on her shoulder. Then on her other side would be Salazar and beside him, Silver. The twins would be side by side, Salazar smirking with his arms crossed and he looks quite happy. Then, Silver would have her right hand on her hip and she would be waving, with her left. It would be a simple wave but Destiny would be shocked to see that Silver doesn't have the Dark Mark on her forearm. Destiny would assume Salazar wouldn't be branded either, but she can't see to make completely sure. Also, like Harry, Destiny would see her dead mom that she always wanted to meet. Then, the surprising thing is, she would also see, Drake and Dumbledore standing behind her mother. (Destiny's biggest desire is feel like she has a place and people who care for her, though she acts like she doesn't.) Drake is becoming, as you will see in the next chapter, Destiny's first 'real' friend and Dumbledore was there for her when she needed help. (Very similar to how Dumbledore is always there for Severus. "Like father, like ... daughter!?")
Drake - Now, his would be interesting. I don't want to elaborate to much or it will spoil a few things but I will tell. First, Drake would stand in front of the mirror and straight away he would see a man with the same color eyes as him with short reddish-brown hair. The man is wearing an old sweater vest and dress pants. Only the man's eyes would give it away to Drake that he was seeing his father for the first time. However, as soon as he figures it out, the image of his father would dissolve away, to Drake's utter disappointment. Then, in his father's place, Drake sees himself with Silver standing on his right side and she is holding his hand. Almost as soon as the new image is shown, the real Drake begins to smile and then he sees that Salazar and Destiny showed up a little ways behind Silver and him. Salazar is sort of rolling his eyes at Silver and Drake and Destiny is just looking very happy. (Drake always wanted to see his father but now his heart is conflicted because of Silver and who he considers his new friends. However, Drake is not foolish, he knows the trio haven't considered him as a true friend, yet.)
So! Does this mean that the twins have taken the sight of the light? Personally I think so. However, I don't really get why Salazar and Silver send off the fake letter to Dumbledore and then go to visit him in his office when they both know he would have gone to London.
I'm under the impression that this is sort of like their first double-agent task: "proving" to Voldemort that they will carry out the task their father has set them while at the same time not really going after the stone or helping in some way. But one criticism: it's like Salazar and Silver expected Dumbledore to know that it was fake, and maybe that was the intention. I shall compliment you on the fact that you didn't reveal anything during the previous chapter that would have given the true intentions on the twins-I was convinced that they would really join the dark side-but could you possibly explain the reasoning behind forging a letter to the headmaster and then 'expecting' the headmaster to know that it's a fake and return to Hogwarts that same day please?
I love your story anyway. To be honest I have a feeling that this story is coming to an end. How many more chapters are you going to write for this story? And when's the next chapter going to come up? I can't wait for it!
Author's Response: Yes, the twins have completely betrayed Voldemort so they are seeking an ally in Dumbledore. The reason they sent the letter was to give themselves two plans in one move. If one failed they had a back up plan.
FIrst, they believed their letter was good enough to fool Dumbledore. At the same time, they thought Dumbledore would be intelligent enough to know to come back to the castle after finding out that the letter was fake. Their first and main plan was to go to Dumbledore after Voldemort went after the Stone so their father wouldn't know that they betrayed him. They believed that if they didn't send Dumbledore away, Voldemort would plainly see their betrayal and they would have very short lives. Sal and Silv, meant to tell Dumbledore just in time so he would be able to stop Voldemort and the headmaster would help make it look like Dumbledore out-smarted them. (Which probably wouldn't surprise Voldemort as he would know how intelligent the headmaster is.)
Though the Moon Twins didn't think of their actions as a double-agent task, looking back they will see how good at it they were and they do plan on becoming spies at the end of the second year. Plus, Voldemort still believes that they helped him so Sal and Silver will think that it's their only option. They will make it appear as they are Death Eaters but since they don't want to belong to the Dark Lord, they aid Dumbledore in secret. (I know it sounds like they would be taking Snape's place but as the Moon Twins are Harry and Draco's age, Voldemort will order Sal and Silver to use their positions to keep an eye on them. Snape will still be order to keep eye on Dumbledore.)
Side note: As you know, in my story, Dumbledore never left his office but he made it sound like he did by telling McGonagall that he was leaving. In my mind, Dumbledore was hoping that whoever sent the letter would give themselves away if he appeared to have left. (He couldn't possibly know that Harry would talk to McGonagall.) And, even Dumbledore wasn't expecting it to be the twins that sent the note or for the reason that they gave. Also, remember, in all the books, Dumbledore never gave Harry a good reason as to why he "returned" and saved Harry. Dumbledore just said, after arriving at the Ministry, he thought Hogwarts was the place he should be and that Hermione's owl must have just missed him. In my story, the Moon Twins was the connection and Dumbledore is keeping their secret.
Now, for their second, fall back on, plan (The one they hoped wouldn't happen.) -- If for some reason Dumbledore didn't trust that they really meant to cross their father, Salazar and Silver would just have waited until the day Voldemort did return and tell him how they sent the letter but disgracefully, their actions were not successful. They would have begged for mercy and they would have gone to the dark side. But, the first plan did work out so no need to worry.
Sadly, like the Harry Potter novels, at this point in the year, the story is almost over. I have to post two more chapters for this year. The next one is already wrote and now I have to edit it and post. The last chapter will hopefully be up in about a week or so, later. Then, I hope to start posting my second year in about a month or so. Hopefully sooner. And finally, thanks very much for the compliments.
Oh my gosh! I can't believe it! Salazar and Silver are going to work for Voldy-poo? Hmmm.
I have the suspicion that, being who they are, they have something up their sleeves, but I can never be sure with those two. I know you said in the respons to one of my reviews that they aren't going to go down into the trapdoor, but I had no idea that they would still help in some way! I was under the impression that they would just sit in the background. So, now they aren't! What's Destiny going to say about this? Is she going to hate them (if she does indeed find out about this)?
What I find very interesting is that Severus really does hate Salazar. Any particular reason why this may be? Or is it just because Salazar is Voldy's son?
Astrid Brice-wow. She just can't stop following Salazar around, can she? No offence, but I don't really like her. I'm under the impression that she's very stalker like and the sort of person who never leaves people alone. In fact, I actually think of her who's sort of...stubborn, doesn't give up and will do anything to get Salazar's affections.
Jane, too, is someone I don't really like. Personally, I think the moon twins and Destiny are treating her a little unfairly...but maybe that's because there are no scenes showing Jane's meaness in the story yet. A scene like that would be great (not that I'm saying that a scene like that is completely and utterly necessary).
I hope both Astrid and Jane get their fair shares in the story-which reminds me: do either of them interfere with the twin's plans for forging a fake letter to Dumbledore?
I'd just like to say that I enjoyed chapters 15 and 16 immensely, as well as the rest of the story (of course). Hope you update soon!
Author's Response: You're right to think that the Moon Twins are up to something but that's all I'm going to say about that. However, I'll also add that Destiny will only find out what's going on after everything unfolds. I know, very cryptic but I assure you the next chapter will explain most of what's happening.
About Severus and Salazar, they are both thinking the same thing about the other. 'If they never meet again it will be too soon.' Now I know that sounds like they hate each other but that's not so. Severus thinks Salazar is just an arrogant child but because of Destiny, Severus tries (very hard) to be a little civil to him. However, as we know, civil is not an adjective to describe Severus, or Salazar for that matter. Salazar thinks Severus only sees Voldemort in him and Salazar is overly annoyed about that. Salazar doesn't hate Severus. It's more like Salazar respects the professor but Salazar won't be admitting that out loud or even to himself for a while.
Astrid Brice is first and foremost your average run of the mill, preppy, first class girl who sinks her claws into a cute boy and won't let him go. True, not many girls are as courageous as she is at twelve years old but there are some out there. In my mind, her mother is a very young woman, probably single with not many good parent skills. Astrid probably grew up watching her mother flirt with a lot of good-looking men and she picked up some of those habits. You're right, she is very stubborn and she won't be leaving Salazar alone for some time, no matter what he says.
And, for the record, don't worry about not liking a few of my characters. I hate Jane myself too but there is a point to all of the people I have created, whether or not I have shown it yet. Actually, Jane's part won't show up until the beginning of the third year. But, I will be working her character until then. And, never forget, the Moon Twins are not nice and never pretend to be. Even if Jane was the nicest Slytherin ever, the twins would still treat her like crap. Actually they might treat her worst because they think overly nice people are fools.
All in all, Astrid and Jane will appear quite a bit more. Jane comes into play a lot in the next year when the Chamber is being open and Astrid will be cornering Salazar for years. But no, neither one of them will be interfering with the twins' plan. And, I'm glad you have like the chapters. I think you will enjoy reading the next few. Almost done writing the next one so it should be up very soon.
AHHHH!!! I KNEW IT! SALAZAR LIKES DESTINY!!!!
I apologise for my overexcitedness. I was practically screaming in delight when I read chapter 13. It was awesome!
Now, when you replied to my last review you said that boht Silver and Salazar would choose what side they would be on in this book (the first one). Am I right in saying that Salazar chooses the light side? Isn't saying that Salazar's only following the scheme to steal the philosopher's stone because of his sister (or something like that) means that he's on the light side? And what about Silver?
I am so glad that you finally give a chapter on the POV of Salazar. This is a record: seven chapters in a row without that.
The mirror of erised part was amazing. Salazar seeing Silver and Destiny smiling with him and all three of them being happy was extremely surprising. To be honest, I expected Salazar to see himself holding the philosopher's stone and making elixir out of it or something like that. Now, I am not suggesting what you did is not good-I actually find it brilliant-but it was quite unexepcted, how it turned out in the end. And Destiny taking his hand and leaning into his arm in the mirror is just so cute! That's just evidence that she and Salazar might end up together!
What I find pretty strange is that when I read chapter eight, I knew pretty much straight away that there was something more to Salazar and Destiny...
*I wonder who your first snog will be with,” Destiny taunted.
“Oh shut it, Des!” Salazar growled.*
Now we've got proof of that. He he.
I'm loving your story, and keep updating!!
P.S. When's more on Silver and Drake or Destiny and Sal coming up?
P.P.S I can already imagine Destiny and Sal getting together and the same goes for Silver and Drake. Can you please tell me whether either of these pairs really end up together? Unless it spoils the whole story of course. =)
Author's Response: Hahaha... I'm glad your happy :)
The mirror is a funny scene to me because though, for the readers, it's obvious that Salazar likes Destiny more than he lets on, he still doesn't even believe it, himself. When he saw what the mirror showed him, Salazar, as you know, freaked out. Almost like he sees it as an impossible occurance. The only thing Salazar really took out of the experience is that deep down, he didn't want the stone.
However, Salazar did really want to have the stone. (He wasn't just going with the flow, for a lack of a better way to put it.) The difference with Silver's eagerness versus Salazar's after the Destiny confrontation, is that, because Silver is more of a temperamental person, she is more brutal about things. (I don't mean Silver gets emotional, more like she's very good at getting angry and not a girl to mess with when she is. And when she is pissed off, she is even more persistent to get what she wants.) Destiny made Silver angry and so Silver also wanted to get the stone more out of spite of Destiny than because she disagreed with Destiny's viewpoint. Silver's anger is one of the reasons that she has such a sharp tongue and gets into a lot of tight spots. Generally, Salazar is the only one to truly calm Silver down and he can make her see reason.
Now, about the light versus dark, to be honest, the stone was only a small taste of what the twins want. A big reason the stone was so important to the Moon Twins was that it meant power. At this point, Salazar and Silver both want to be the greatest wizard and witch there is. The only terms that want to go by is that they must achieve the power by their own volition. Sorry, but that's all I can give you so far, on this.
On the matching, I'm so glad you caught that foreshadowing of the comment that Destiny made to Salazar. Like I said the readers are very aware of all the characters' emotional states, sometimes more than the characters themselves. As for Silver and Drake, the two of them are quite unusual. Drake has already told Silver that he likes her, which for a young boy is strange enough. Now, they act like nothing was said. When Drake is able to really ask Silver for a date (in the third book), they will begin to talk about their feelings again, against Silver's wishes :)
As for Salazar and Destiny, they are both basically oblivious to each other as anything. Destiny hasn't even begin to picture Salazar as anything more than a 'Moon Twin', at this point. She even feels it's foolish to even consider them as friends, at this point. Since, Destiny has no idea about what Salazar saw, and there's no way Sal is going to tell her, she won't be 'really' looking at him for some time.
As for Salazar's side of it, as I stated up above, he doesn't really understand what he saw in the mirror. At best, Salazar thinks that he was just meant to keep Destiny as a close ally. The fact that the three of them were so happy just made Salazar confused and wished he hadn't seen anything.
In the first and second book, only little things happen between Des and Sal, though they don't really think about them. Similar things like the mirror or other foreshadowing conversations occur, but nothing is really said between Sal and Des.
Actually, more happens, to Salazar's annoyance, with Brice and him. Brice is a lot like the pretty social birds of school who set their eyes on one boy and try everything to get them. Salazar, like most uninterested boys, doesn't know what to do to get rid of Brice. In the second year, Salazar will basically tel her to leave him alone, but, the more he pushes away, the more Brice thinks he's cool and aloof.
It's not until the third book that Salazar begins to really react to Destiny, though Destiny doesn't see anything change and, being Salazar, he doesn't know what's going on in his own head. Destiny, is only going to find out a little of what Sal is thinking in the fourth book. Hint: She finds out in a big way, with no warning and Salazar is still completely confused :) .... Sorry, I think you would rather read about it.
I've been reading this ever since chapter 3 came out. I'd just like to say that I absolutely love it. The story just keeps on getting better.
I'm surprised Destiny stood up to the Moon Twins. From this, I observe that she is more vulnerable than the twins. Is she going to turn to the light side?
Also, the bit with Drake and Silver is wicked. What I highly suspect is that Drake is in love with Silver (as insane as the idea sounds). I'm super excited to see what happens with that, as well as what happens with Jane.
I'm also excited to see whether all of them will turn to the light or dark side!
Keep the updates coming!
I'm very glad you like the story. As I'm writing the story as I post it, the next chapter might take about a week or so to get up.
As for Destiny, you were right to think that she has more moments of weaknesses than the Moon Twins. The Moon Twins see this side of her, only when she is sleeping. This is because, in the presence of the twins, Destiny always feels stronger and can handle and overcome a lot more than when she is alone, which is why she is able to speak her mind to their face.
The Moon Twins do know Destiny's childhood trama with her adoptive parents, but they never cared to talk about it. (Silver hates emotional stuff and Salazar never would know what to say.) But, they do understand that since Destiny is still as strong as she is after all she went through, she is a very valuable person. It was Destiny's ability to overcome her personal hardships at such a young age that made the Moon Twins really want to include her. They believe Destiny is the perfect ally; intellegent, strong, and loyal. (Destiny doesn't know this reason, yet. She believes the twins just liked how she appeared to be 'strange' like them.)
As for your question about which side the trio will be; light or dark. I'm afraid I don't want to give away all the surprises. Although, I will say this, the Moon Twins will officially decide where they stand in this book but Destiny won't tell anyone what she has decided to do until the end of year three. However, I think Destiny's loyality is partially explained throughout the first three books. (And, yes, I intend to write 7 or 8 books for The Youngest Death Eaters. I have already wrote some future chapters for each of the years coming. I have a complete outline for each of my characters' actions and their futures and I already know how each year is going to play out. Now, it's all a matter of writting the in between chapters :) )
Since, Jane was a last minute character idea, it might seem like she falls off the map sometimes, however, I will explain why that is. There is something about Jane's personality that the readers don't know yet. I designed her after I girl I knew in hight school.
As for Drake and Silver, I think you will like how that turns out, but I can't say anymore yet. Hope I can keep you entertained in the future, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask. Unless the questions spoil the whole series, I'll answer.
Yay! Another chapter up! I didn't get a chance to read this until today, but it's great. Seriously, I can't wait until the final chapter of this story and for the second story, as well as the rest of the series.
One thing, though: I don't think it's in this chapter, but some of the other chapters have slightly incorrect grammer, such as incorrectly placed commas and full stops at the end of questions instead of question marks. You haven't done any of that in this chapter (incorrect grammar, as far as I can see) but I'm pretty sure that there have been some errors in your grammar in past chapters. Be sure to watch out for any grammar issues.
I seriously can't wait for the next update. Soon?
Author's Response: Last chapter just posted, enjoy.
YES!!!! AN UPDATE! BINGO!!!!
Albus and Jemzi are FINALLY together-about time. I wonder what's going to happen next-is the overprotective father going to get in the way of such a happy relationship??? Hope you update soon!
Author's Response: Blaise will have things to say, but he won't get in the way. Next chapter soon :)
I seriously want to read the next chapter: I can't wait!
If I haven't already reviewed this story, I'd just like to say that I absolutely love it. I knew even before I read this story that it was going involve a romance between Jemzi and Albus, and it became more obvious as I read the various chapters. Thanks for getting chapter ten up super quick! Now, already knowing that romance between Albus and Jemzi would happen in this story (eventually) I was still amazed to read the whole story of what had happened between them. You know, when I found out what the argument had been, I couldn't help but think of Albus just like Severus when he (Albus) accidently lost Jemzi's friendship. And I still can't wait until the next chapter!
Author's Response: Next chapter soon; so glad you like Al and Jem as a pair. :D
I can't wait to read the next few bits...I'm very excited about the whole Bellatrix coming back...though I honestly thought that the teacher would still be Severus (I actually thought that HE would come back) but never the less, I am very excited. I think Nina has something to do with the Illuminati. I could be wrong, but that's my guess. I can't wait to see what happens next.
Author's Response: Hmm... you DO realise Snape DIED in the end of Book 7? I couldn't possibly bring him back, too awkward. Plus, Zabini is just as sarcastic and pessimistic and sour as Snape. It's like a new generation of greasy hair! But anyway, wait and see with the Nina thing. I'm sooo not giving you a hint! Thanks for the review!
Alexandra Quick returns to Charmbridge Academy for eighth grade, angry and in denial. Unwilling to accept the events of the previous year, she is determined to fix what went wrong, no matter what the cost. When her obsession leads her to a fateful choice, it is not only her own life that hangs in the balance, for she will uncover the secret of the Deathly Regiment!
This is the third book in the Alexandra Quick series.
I absolutely love the Alexandra Quick series. You said that you spent a lot of time thinking about it and jotting down ideas (or something lik that). That is an understatement. You must have spent ages and ages coming up with stories so fabulous! The Alexandra Quick series is phenominal. J.K Rowling should be jealous. You could seriously give her a run for her money.
Alexandr Quick and the Stars Above...I would have never guessed the title. But it sounds so good-I can't wait!
P.S And one question: I'm pretty sure Martin and Max are both gay and that they dated each other while they were at school. This is true, right?
Author's Response: Martin admitted as much to Alexandra in the last chapter, yes. Thank you for your review, and I'm glad you like the stories!
That is so sweet...I absolutely love it. Sad that you had to cut out Fred, though.
Author's Response: Thanks! Fred would have been good, I agree, but it was him or Ron.
