Hello. Welcome to my measly little author page.
St. Dymphna, pray for us...
I've had a lot of time off from the site because of RL personal issues, but I've missed you all.;)
Doesn't let me type much here, lucky 4 all of us....
3 upcoming works: 1 ambitious "Literary"( I hope ) novel Lucius/Narcissa
1 Dark and angsty short story about Maudelaine Johnson, a Muggle-Born turning 11 in 1997...
And this is random: Also a lame, low, petty "revenge" crossover fic of Summer of My German Soldier & Hogan's Heroes to obviously be published elsewhere. If anybody from proboards Fairy Tale Forum wants to say hi, I'm gypsysnowwhite.
Thanks for Reading. You guys taught me what fanfic could be and never to lower my standards...

This is great. One of my favorite favorites. Canon-compliant, too. I love both Narcissa and Lupin, and you managed to portray them both very believably. That's saying a lot, as I am picky about the characterizations, especially my favorite characters. This made me laugh a whole bunch. The only reason why your story isn't as r&r'd as it should be is that it's been a while since it was published--stories like this one remind me of why it's worth it to dig through the archives, and not just look at the recent list. I also like how it makes fun of parent-teacher correspondence in the school systems; there were so many times in school when the silliness implicit in so much of it really struck me. Overall, a great story, and I can hardly think of anything to criticize. Maybe the inclusion of the Greengrasses as a "prominent family", because we don't really see barely any of them in the books, but that's just my personal opinion. I'm gonna send my mother a link to this, I know she'd enjoy it. She probably won't review, unless I can convince her to get an account here...;) A great story! Thanks for doing such a good job with it!

 

A Death Eater's Bedtime Story by Sly Severus
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 33]

This is great! One of my favorites of my favorites. Everybody who's read Harry Potter should read this, it's that good. This was chilling in a subtle way, and I enjoy that quality in fiction, especially in short stories. The first time I read this, I could see it as Lucius and Draco, but reading it again I don't think it's them. I've been forced to think very very hard about the Malfoys as I'm writing a fanfic about them, and I think that while being a Death Eater was extremely important to Lucius, he was also not the type to talk about it very much, especially to his son. I think this is about the Notts--I find them pretty interesting and unexplored characters, especially after J.K. Rowling said that Theodore is the son of an elderly widowed Death Eater. I picture them as being if possible, more serious and snotty than the Malfoys, but less ostentatious. Thanks for a thought-provoking story!

Author's Response: You think someone is more snotty than the Malfoys! Wow, that's pretty impressive. Thanks for the very kind review. :)

 

Summary: Past Featured StoryWhat does Lord Voldemort do in his spare time? Well, that's an excellent question. Who would have known that the Dark Lord has a blog? (He also has a loyal following of readers, most of whom are Death Eaters and who post their comments.) Voldemort dispenses advice on everything from murder methods to germ protection to Power Rangers to shoes, and gives an account of the life of an evil overlord. But is he posting too much personal information online? And will Harry read it and find out more about the Dark Lord than Voldemort ever intended? Read and see.

More than a Woman by MorganRay
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 6]

Summary: Sexuality. I was always so proud of mine. Beauty. I never thought it harmful to be a lovely woman. Marriage. I didn't imagine the wedding bed would make me weak. When I was asked to stand for my blood and prove my worth, I failed. No, it was not because I was weak, but because I was Narcissa Malfoy: a woman.

Reviewer: Rose Nym Signed
Date: 08/13/10 Title: Chapter 14: Chapter XIV: Duelle

Fascinating! Very believable and captivating depiction of the Wizarding world under Grindelwald. I loved the dark ironic humor of the "Mudblood" and the "Untermensch" feeling exactly the same contempt and loathing towards each other, and the mysterious and suspenseful parts didn't fail to capture my attention.I also being the history buff that I am, loved this story in that department, too. In the words of JRR. Tolkien, I love history, rather real or feigned. Isn't it interesting how the wizarding world paralels our own in subtle ways even as it colides with it? I am definitely looking forward to more, but have a few small (hopefully constructive) comments to make. One is that there is a lot of German in this story. It does add to the atmosphere, but maybe including a translation right where it occurs instead of at the end would be a good idea. The time the guys were talking outside the Polish magic headquarters and about to disapparate, I didn't notice you're handy little asterik, and after making some guesses about a countdown, zipped over to Google translator, and in addition to decipherating the conversation, got distracted with the urge to waste time seeing what some phrases were in a gazilion different languages... So, needless to say, it interrupted the flow of the story. The only other thing is I'm not really sure where this story is headed. For the last, I don't know, few chapters maybe it seems to be dragging a little bit. Don't get me wrong, that duel with Karkaroff had me on the edge of my seat, it's just that the school stuff and the fueding seems to be carrying on a bit too long. I might feel differently if there was any character I could root for, but Dieter is a brat-albeit a fascinating character of a brat- and my ability to identify with him has gone down after he's gone completely psycho about going after Karkaroff. So far Ernst is really the only really likeable character in a positive way, to me. I hope Dieter has some sort of come-uppance and changes his ways.The teachers are all really good. Professor Schmidt subtly remind us of the differences between Hogwarts and Durmstrang. And Professor Simonov is just the cheesecake with ice cream on top and chocolate gushing down the sides, though I think my opinion might be different if I was his student. With both Muggle and Wizarding Germany in the grasp of fanatical dictatorships, this is a lot to hope for, but I still hope Dieter gets some sort of come-uppance and changes his ways. I wishyou the best of good fortune with the rest of this story, and I will await updates.

A truly great story, and definitely one of my favorites of my favorites. I find the concept of Squibs fascinating but sad. Your story captures somewhat how I feel about reading Harry Potter and being a Muggle. ;) I thought it was appalling how Arabella's parents treated her, but I give them credit for trying. Knowing many wizarding families, it could have been much worse though. I feel the same way toward mistreatment of Squib children that I do about mistreatment of disabled children in real life--the ultimate failure in empathy.  I think you are a good writer (at least in this fic, I don't think I've read any of your others, but I probably will.) and this story really is full of great emotion and imagery. I really like much fanfiction about minor or unexplored characters that makes sense for the story's world and yours is one of the best examples of that I've read. The only thing in it that I remember not liking is Arabella's nickname "Bella." There are worse names, but to me Bella will probably always be the name of two certain characters I highly dislike, one because she's a b****, the other because she's a an utterly unrealistic idiot who gets everything she wants. (Guess which one Rowling didn't create?) Though I admit the movie "Bella" was okay...Sorry if my rambling is annoying. I would highly like it if you expanded this and wrote a sequel. That would be awesome!! Have a wonderful day! :)



Author's Response: Thank you so much :) I'm really pleased you enjoyed this, and I hope you have a good day too! xx

Date: 08/03/10 Title: Chapter 16: Wide Awake, It's Morning

The best thing about this fic is the characterizations-you've taken what J.K.R. has given us and filled in the blanks beautifully. Remus, Sirius, Peter, Severus, and of course, Lily and James are all written exactly as one would imagine the people who will become the ones we know later in the books. I've only read a few Marauder Era stories, but this is by far the best. The style of the writing is reminiscent of J.K.R.'s herself. Neither the comedy nor the romance is overdone, and the story makes you love Lily and James more.
I hate to criticize it at all, but I think (I could be wrong) that the "werewolf prank" happened before the "levitating Snape" incident. I hope not, because you've really well happening in the order you did.
Fantastic job!

Author's Response: you know, i wondered about that, but there are so many conflicting sources about when the werewolf thing happened--i've seen fifth and sixth year, sirius was 16, it's all over the place. i just kinda went for it in the end. but i'm glad you enjoyed it, thank you so much!!

Love it! I have memorized it now simply because its so much fun. The best potterized song of them all...And except for the fact that he's SINGING it, COMPLETELY in character, especially his choices of favorite things, and the fact that he cares so much about his favorite things, and basically thinks that life is all about his favorite things...

Author's Response:

Hello Rose Nym,

Voldemort is just the type to glory in his own sense of power, and the suffering he can bring to others with it. This song is more than likely far too short to list ALL of his favourite things - but we get the general idea anyway! Oh, if only he'd let his hair down now and then and give us all a tune. If only he HAD hair to let down ...

Delighted you enjoyed it so much, and thanks for R & R-ing,

M :)
