Bio:
I am just an ordinary muggle, wishing to dabble a bit in the wonderful dreamland imagined by the wondrous J.K.Rowling and spread to the rest of muggle world.

Other than that I am and always have been the weird/loony girl at my school, and to my friends have always been the "Luna Lovegood" Character.

I have always believed in stuff my friends find just crazy and find a thrill in new discoveries. I love the animals that my friends find strange and scary, and people always tell me I am slightly naive. I guess I can see why my friends think of me that way. :P

Despite my strange countenance I love people, and the only way to really destroy me is to take people away from me or me away from people.

My favourite characters would have to be :
-The marauders
-Tonks
-Luna Lovegood
-Hermione
-Voldemort (you heard me, I said it)
-Fred and George (gred and forge as they are sometimes known)
-Drace (such an interesting phycological specimen)

My least favourite would be:
-Bellatrix (too clingy)
-Pettigrew (not wormtail, there is a difference)
-Ginny (I just don't like her)
-Rita skeeter (does anyone disagree?)

Some of my preferred ships are: Lupin/Tonks, Harry/Luna, Hermione/Draco, Lily/James and Neville/Ginny... hehehe. You guys probably don't like my shippers...

I often daydream about what the characters' personalities would be like if they were actors and the books were like a movie.

But enough about me, I would like to know what you guys think about my writing, I would love to know what you think of my stlye, and what I could improve on.

Please feel free to contact me, I love talking to other HP fanatics. And even if you don't need an official Beta-Reader, I would love to just read over peoples work. Don't use my "E-mail" use my msn email.

A Tale of Two Matchmakers by Kerichi
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 1387]

Summary: Romance for three couples when Blaise and Luna use Shakespearean styled matchmaking to hook up Ginny and Draco. There's Much Ado about...something!

Nominated for a Quicksilver Quill for Best Romance-Non Canon 2007, 2008, and 2009. In 2010 mods changed the rules (they got tired of the same fics being nominated ^_~) so no more QQ hopes, but that's okay. No proof is needed that Draco/Ginny = love.  

* Written before the HBP, this tale presents an alternate sixth year in which Dumbledore lives, Draco is more than a foil to Harry, and Blaise Zabini is a girl. I hope readers who ship Draco/Ginny will enjoy the story which includes dancing with faeries, Celtic and Norse mythology, school holidays in London and Spain, and loads of fantasy and romance. "Is this a kissing book?" (to quote the Princess Bride) Yes, it is. *

(Warnings were added for safety, due to brief allusions in later chapters, not graphic content.)

Alice in wonderland, eh? Just when I thought you couldn't fit in any MORE pop-culture references... *Shakes head sadly*

Author's Response: I think the Alice quote, like the Shakespeare, counts as a literary reference, ^_~, but references of all sorts are a perk of fan fiction, and I'm sure it's very apparent I enjoyed using them and hope readers enjoy them too.

 

Friends 'til the End by LadyAlesha
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 13]

Summary: It's Bill and Fleur's wedding, amidst all the bustle Harry and Luna share a few quiet moments of reflection and understanding.

Reviewer: Muggle in the Know Signed
Date: 03/09/10 Title: Chapter 1: The Dance

A good fan-fiction overall, just one thing about the last line is bugging me :

“You know, Luna, I’m really going to miss you!”

There you should have used a full stop, not an exclamation mark. It just sounds awkward in that sense and with that wording. Perhaps if you wanted to make that point more accentuated you should have used :

"I'm really going to miss you, Luna!"

Or something along those lines. Using "You know," in that sentence is sort of awkward. But that's it I think.

 

Lily's Decision by MrsPhineasNigellus
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 62]

Summary: Lily Evans has always hated James Potter and two of the other Marauders. However, can Remus Lupin, the closest thing Lily has to a friend at Hogwarts, convince her to give James a chance before he gives up on her for good?

:D that is actually a really good piece of literature, and I love the plot line you came up with. But two things I noticed were.
a) The heads share a ... living space? I dont know, common room and 2 separate dorms and
b) Sirius's middle name is Orion.

But other than that it was really good.

I have a few things to mention.

First was this fragment : "She sauntered off the room" I think you may mean "She sauntered out of the room" or "She sauntered off to her room"

Second, is that Luna had blue eyes not brown eyes.

But I think that's it. Other than that this is very well written. You have amazing writing skills.

 

The Things I Do For L.O.V.E by Pussycat123
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 473]

Summary: Hi, I’m Lily Evans. You know, there are a lot of fics about me out there. I’m flattered that you spend time thinking about me, but sometimes sickened. How could these fics not mention my bonkers beautiful cat, Missy? And what about my evil and malicious extremely helpful conscience? Or the fact that I make a fool out of myself at every opportunity am unique?

Well, this fic has all of these things. It also has L.O.V.E (I’m the ‘L’), the elite group of cliquey lovely girls that I am part of. And our rival, the sarcastic cynic also unique Iola Potter (cousin and partner in crime to James). But does it have an actual plot? Of course not Absolutely! And it starts with me getting a detention with Iola (through no fault of my own, of course). And we kind of ... almost ... well, we get on alright. A friendship sparks, shall we say. I have no idea how it happens It is meant to be. But it’s going to take some fighting for if we want to keep it. It would be a lot easier to just stick to what we know, really. We were perfectly happy hating each other. But ... well. I guess you’ll have to find out!

Read this or I’ll curse you Read this and I’ll love you!

Date: 02/22/10 Title: Chapter 8: A Path Becomes Clear, And For Once I Take It

I would just like to thank you for not being insensitive in your fanfic about growing up in that situation. I know other writers sometimes can be. And that probably doesn't make any sense, so a piece of background knowledge is that Iola's "abusive father" childhood basically sums up mine. And don't do the whole sympathy thing, please? Because if you grow up in this, you kinda begin to hate that. But anyway, on lighter notes. You really do have really good writing skills, and you stick to a certain personality really well.

Author's Response: All right, no sympathy thing (without going into details, I understand how much that sucks, so don't worry). But it's really good to know that I didn't treat the situation insensitively, because I was a bit worried about that at the time, and I would never want to offend anybody. Thanks so much for this review, it actually really meant a lot to me. =)

 

Summary:

2009 QSQs: Runner-up: Best Romance - Other Character Story


Add together one ladies' man, one Quidditch player, one werewolf, and one soon-to-be traitor. Then, mix in one imaginative idiot, one fiery redhead, one clever Ravenclaw, and one blonde artist. Stir counterclockwise until trouble occurs, and you are dealing with one of the best-loved group of friends in Hogwarts history. Follow the story of the four Marauders and four equally troublesome girls. See them deal with their first encounters of love, sorrow, heartache… and Death Eaters. How will these future Order members cope with the ordeals that life throws at them? Will love blossom in what was once thought a highly unlikely place? What do you do when the person you care about most in the world doesn’t seem to notice you at all? Will a well-kept secret shatter the foundations of a seven-year friendship? Follow the lives of these friends through their last year at school to the dramatic final battle with Lord Voldemort two decades later.

Warnings are for later chapters, and any sexual situations are very minor.

Chapter Twenty Two: "The Snakes Strike" is in the queue. Excerpt:

Perfume filled his nostrils as Emma walked passed and Rosier’s gaze lingered on her bare, pale legs as the group headed outdoors. “Don’t you just love summer?” he inquired of Regulus, a hungry sneer lighting his face.

“This is ridiculous,” Regulus announced in a furious whisper, “we’re never going to get them alone!”

“Have faith, Black,” commanded Rosier smoothly. “Girls are well renowned for their desire for girly chats. I’m sure they’ll slip off the shackles of their chaperones soon enough.”

I merely have one question; How often will you be updating? I only found this stor recently so I don't know what to expect ... Well recently being a month ago ... But you truly can write amazingly.

Date: 02/16/10 Title: Chapter 10: Chapter 8 - A Chocolate Induced Revelation

I would just like to let you know that your writing abilities are phenomenal. I love this fanfiction, it's about the third time I'm reading it. I love how you can come up with such an amazing plotline, but still keep your writing so detailed, and the way you put in bits that others may think of not necessary to the plotline, but still make the people seem so much more real. I just love your epic writing. I can't say that enough. Oh and one little thing, it's too late to change it now, but maybe in future fics, the head boy and girl have a dormitory to themselves (common room, head girl's room, and head boy's room) x]

Secret Boxes by megan_lupin
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 20]

Summary: Past Featured Story“Nothing weighs on us so heavily as a secret.”

A late night stroll to clear the mind leads to an unlikely conversation between two friends, where walls that have spent years being built up are suddenly torn down.

I really only have two things to criticize:

First was this line " Instead, he let his mind wander almost as much - if not more than – his body", what it should have been is this - " Instead, he let his mind wander almost as much – if not more - than his body"

The second thing I have to critique is this " easier, for the most part. It was simple, he knew. There was no reason" It should have been written as " easier. For the most part, it was simple. He knew there was no reason"

But other than that I can't really see any problems with the fan-fiction. In fact, this is a really well written piece. Your writing skills are truly amazing. You leave nothing to be desired.

 

The Cause by Pussycat123
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 276]

Summary: Marty Price works for The Cause, which involves several campaigns and petitions on a weekly basis. It has become common knowledge within Hogwarts that if you see her coming towards you with a clipboard, you should turn and walk the other way. Or perhaps deny all grasp of the English language. And if this isn’t eccentric enough, there’s also her obsessive written observations of four boys in her year, which will one day make a rather interesting book ...

Remus Lupin, meanwhile, has always been a little different, too. Poor, sweet Remus Lupin is, to the casual observer, the picture of a sensible, hard working student. However, he has three friends who have done more for him than anyone knows and they have done this because of his troubled past, troubled present and troubled future. Why the gloominess? Because Remus Lupin just so happens to be a werewolf.

So what could these two possibly have in common? And how can their stories possibly connect?

Just wow. Your writing skills are amazing. I really loved this. It's one of my favourites. I'm probably going to read it again. Anyway, I'm not really reviewing now so I'll stop blathering.

Author's Response: Aw, thank you, and hey - I don't mind blathering. :) I'm really pleased you enjoyed it, I hope it's as good the second time around!

 

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. But the first night back — and the murder that takes the entire school by surprise — leave her guilt-ridden as well.

With the darkness that’s surrounding the Wizarding world slowly seeping, at long last, onto the grounds of Hogwarts and into the lives of James Potter and Lily Evans, what comes next?

One thing to fix up is that Armando Dippett was headmaster during the time of the marauders. But other than that this is really good. x3

Author's Response: Someone else has mentioned that, but I don't think it's correct. I know that Dippett was headmaster before Albus Dumbledore, but according to the HP lexicon, Dippet retired and Dumbledore took over in 1956, which would make Dippet Headmaster for Riddle but not the Marauders. I'm glad you're enjoying the story, though! Thanks for the review.

Umm... sorry, I'm back again. One more thing, Sirius wasn't on the quidditch team. Maybe they were brewing veritaserum, that takes a month to brew... I don't know, just guessing here, and Lily did have sass, quite a bit of it too, and you are right, that is one of the reasons he loved her. :) Sorry for having to point out flaws, but that's what reviews are for right?

Author's Response: You're right, he wasn't. I'll have to fix that! (And yes, it's always good when reviewers point out ways to make the story better!) I'm glad you like Lily's sass. Thanks for the review. :)

POLYJUICE POTION!? Ingenious, if I do say so myself, it's like the golden trio all over again... except with two people ... sorta ... that either hate or are head over heels for the other ... X3

Author's Response: Haha, I'm glad you liked it ;) Thanks for the review!
