Welcome! This is my author bio. Obviously. If you couldn't figure that out...you're probably not a Ravenclaw.
Review! If you review me I will (probably) review you, if you've written anything anyway.
News: Blaise 7 is up.
And a new story is in queue, a one-shot that was actually written a long time ago. Tell me what you think of it.
This is a really great idea for a story, and very well written and charaterized. I liked all the little hints to the future, like the names, and the line about how "I'll still have the marks in 30 years" like in the book. Excellent job! Molly/Arthur deserves more fanfic than it gets.
Good job with this chapter! I really like how it's coming out. Update very very soon.
I really liked reading your story, there are a few typos here and there though. It is really funny. Are the Mauraders doing some more pranks soon?
Well! You've edited this since I saw it last. I thought that I had reviewed it, but apparently I haven't. Congrats on being featured, it deserves it. The piece actually makes you feel sorry for Snape, and I like the literary allusion touches. The whole idea of the lining and the way it is obtained, how James kept his secret- all very excellently done and interestingly thought out.
How did snape save harry's life earlier without knowing? I wasn't clear what you meant.
Funny story! Rather strange, some characters are a little too OOC. I enjoyed it, wonder what will happen next!
Wow! Good idea for a story, I like that you said that it won't be a Hr/D, there's way too many of those and they get a bit weird sometimes. Well written, and not too many typos. You have a good start here, so please update! 10!
The way you describe Neville and Padma really apt. I never thought about those two,I admit, though it probably won't happen in the books! :-) Your metaphors are really well done.
Nice. Very nice. Does that mean DUmbledore is a heir of gryffindor then?
"...befriending those in whom he saw the spirit of his father. " so maybe not, only the ideals.
I must admit I was slightly disappointed when you said Fawkes. My first thought was, believe it or not, Peeves. Hanging around the castle for a long time but not a ghost, so not dead, occasionally helping/befriending those with the right spirit- the way he helped Fred and George against Umbridge- it would've been a really funny twist. MAybe I'm just weird. YOu should write an AU of this story where that happens, it could be really cool.
ANyway, Fawkes is good too, and I would have been surprised more if I wasn't in such a weird mood. FOrgive me if this reivew alarms you, i think it's one of the stranger ones I've written.
Two years, huh? I think you did it justice. It didn't have the feel of something that had been stewed too long and lost its flavor- it was fresh and cute. What an evil trap- Ginny is great. Keep up the good work- I'm going to go and read the next chapter now. Normally I review on the most recent, but this chapter was just so funny.
Interesting idea for a story- I'm not sure exactly when it is taking place. I hope you plan on taking this story farther.
Author's Response: The story is after OotP, but it disregards HBP. This is because I wrote the first chapter before book six came out. I just decided to keep going with it. :)
Nice plot, but please go back and edit!!! That could be your problem with getting chapter 2 accepted. I think there was a whole paragraph that was only a sentence or two. No matter how good your plot is, it's hard to enjoy reading something that needs different punctuation. I hope I'm not insulting you, I'm not trying to. Your story is nice (but I am afraid of R/Hr fans' reaction when they see it). Update very soon!
Author's Response: R/Hr fans, terrifying! (if thats how u spell it) after my current story which is under a different account name has been accepted (its and R/Hr one beleive it or not, but... its got H/Hr in it
Wow, wow, wow. Fabulous, excellent, superlative story. The ending absolutely shocked me. That last paragraph- couldn't believe it. No, Petunia, don't do it!
I think you are very good at character development, don't worry. James was great, and that line at the end of one chapter about how they were all happy really gave you a feeling of, "but not for long." with an evil cackle. Peter's sinking was so depressing- if whe had only told them, everything would have been so different. And if Luna had told Harry about Petunia earlier... Oh, and Luisa living still was a brilliantly evil finishing stroke. And how you made Lily be all mean and shallow, instead of Miss Perfect as she usually is, was great. Why did she stand up for Snape, though? You never said. I think this is a great story and you should definitely write more soon.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! Yeah, I enjoyed writing the \"really happy chapter ending\"... I was cackling... how did you guess? :) I\'m glad you noticed all the \"what ifs.\" I love adding them. Yes, I am a Shakespeare fan, again, how did you guess? :D I\'m not sure about the standing up for Snape, though... I guess, since Petunia doesn\'t know, I didn\'t include it.
I haven't reviewed? I'm very sorry, I thought I had. THis story is on my favorites list, which means I really like it. I think I may have guessed Andrea's secret though. I like how the twins are both in character and yet you make them much more individual, not like in the books. So please update soon!
I see how people might want Draco and Hermione together, but at the same time, to go in new directions as an author is much more Gryffindor. I personally think this ending is better, because Hermione was right- with Draco, she'll always be falling, but Ron will alwalys be there for her. If she married Draco, she'd be constantly afraid- not just of his former DE friends coming for revenge- but of the worst sides of Draco's own character overcoming him, like almost happened with Ron. She'd never be able to fully trust his judgement- even if she trusted him when it came to herself, he simply would be unpredictable with others. Was that Draco who used Crucio in the forest? Anyhow, she can love Ron without him being her intellectual equal, although you did rather underplay Ron's intelligence- he is much smarter than that in canon, the typical example being chess, but also in his skills in other areas. Many smart people just don't do well in a school setting, and I think Ron looks dumb simply because you often described him through Draco's eyes, or Hermione after she absorbed Draco's advice. So yes, this ending was just- good, and fitting with the characterisations you've made throughout.
That said, I do think it will be nice to read the alternate ending, simply because while Ron may be best for Hermione in many ways, Draco does complement her, as you said. And what is best for Draco is definitely not R/Hr. No. He's going to become a werewolf, isn't he. And that is so sad and wrong and destroys his last few years' attempt to redeem himself. Hermione brings out the best in him, and we'll never know- until the second epilogue that is. Hermione ought to still remain friends with Ron and the Weasleys, though (I do hope). Though perhaps Ron will be a bit colder? I hope not. Perhaps he will find someone else and realize things are better that way. Anyway, I look forward to your post, though as I said, i do like the current ending. Except for Draco's fate, of course.
And I'd just like to say before this review becomes interminably long and my homework goes undone- I dont usually read D/Hr, finding it unrealistic and totally ooc or pure cliche. This fic pleasantly surprised me, although of course not entirely avoiding ooc, impossible in D/Hr, but by having reasonable ways to explain the characters' changes (except Draco's one minute impetus, of saving Harry changing his worldview forevermore, which seemed more abrupt than the rest) in a gradual way, drawn out just long enough to seem feasible. Although if they are both as smart as they seem I dont know why neither guessed far earlier, some of the clues did seem to narrow it down an awful lot. But still, this was a job very well done.
Great story! I have been trying to review for ages but something isn't working. I love the scene where Dudley learns about the phropecy, and the ninja is cool too. I added you to my favorites list! Great job!
Dentists have no training in gunshot wounds, they know teeth! I suppose they would know if he was running a fever or not, but still....
Sirius Black wasn't charged with 8 murders, more like 12 I think. Also, viscous is thick and sticky sort of, I think you mean vicious. ( Mrs. Granger's speech telling Haryy to let go of his anger). Sorry i keep criticizing bc. I think your story is the gr8est, the pillow fight was cute, and so is the lily- lupin side plot. Keep up the good work!
Wow! I loved the mental battle between Harry and you know who. The action and details- it all made gr8 sense! Ok, I saw your response to the other reviewer in this chapter- do you want me to edit anything? just send it over.
Harry will be needing a timeturner this year lol Great, can't wait to see what happens next!
I really liked the ending! Very cute!
