Summary: Winner of the 2008 QSQ for Best Female Original Character.
Twelve years ago, one man's life was changed forever by three simple words: “Severus, I'm pregnant.”
Now, twelve years later, a girl will embark on the journey of a lifetime. But life at Hogwarts for a first year is far from simple, especially not when she's in the same year as Harry Potter. She will face enemies, choices and danger, while struggling to deal with her past's dark secrets that, after all these years, still threatens to destroy her.
One girl's journey. One man's desperate search. One last chance for Severus Snape to find the daughter he lost.
I couldn't stop reading this! I am excited to go onto Year Two. This is the first story I've read thus far that had so much to do with Snape and I'm loving it!
Summary: Winner of the 2008 QSQ for the Best Female Original Character. Shiloh Sander’s second year begins peacefully, but it is a peace that is easily shattered when words of blood appear on Hogwarts’ ancient walls. With rumours of the Heir of Slytherin floating through the halls, battlelines are drawn in the Slytherin common room, between those who will support the Heir and those who will not. Soon Shiloh must decide where she stands. But the choice is only the beginning. In the middle of it all, Severus Snape continues his diligent search to find the daughter he lost, never knowing that this is the year it will come to an end. One girl’s choice. One man’s deepest wish. One year that will change both their lives…forever.
Hey! It's been a while since you posted anything are you still working on this? I love it so much!
This was good. I definitely didn't guess that Nicolette would be a Muggleborn! A note: Sometimes it seems like you typed a word with T9 and it guessed the wrong word. I can't find an example right now, but I've seen it a few times in this chapter and a few prior. Other than that, it's great! As soon as we discovered that Nic was a muggleborn, I knew she was going to be petrified. Keep up the good work!
Very nice. My favorite line is "Promises, promises." That is so Persephone.
I totally squealed when Jacob and Shiloh made up. It made me so happy! I think I am officially emotionally attached to these characters!
Summary: James would do anything to get inside Lily’s head. Lily would do anything to get away from James. Lily was brewing a banned potion. James went to find her. Lily made a mistake and the potion exploded. James got his wish, but is it much more than he bargained for?
After a year the Epilouge is now up! Come read for a bit of fun!!
Runner up QSQ - Best Chaptered Canon Romance
Reason for Nomination:
This is the most unique take on how James and Lily really got to know each other. The story is hilarious and keeps you laughing throughout, but it never lets you forget the serious stuff. Plus, she somehow manages to end each chapter with a nice cliffhanger.
That just made me cry. Oh my goodness.
This whole story made me laugh so hard! And it made me cry! And it made me love Lily and James all over again. Thank you.
Summary: [He] walked a little taller that day. We had to tip our hats to him. He was lucky she hadn't beat the crap out of him. We wouldn't have blamed her. What he'd done was sneaky, rotten and low... and cool. Not another one among us would've ever in a million years... even for a million dollars had the guts to put the move on the lifeguard. He did. He had kissed a woman, and he had kissed her long and good. - The Sandlot
That was so great! I"m still laughing as I write this! And it's exactly something I could see Sirius doing! Hahahaha!
WINNER of the BEST GENERAL story – Quicksilver Quills Awards 2010. In the weeks and months after their eldest brother’s wedding Fred and George Weasley continued to run their business. Two decent honest and respectable businessmen, they had no involvement at all in any illicit conduct. They certainly didn’t get involved in any anti-Voldemort activities. Definitely not. No. Not them. Never. They wouldn’t. Honestly.
The clue with Katie Bell's name is really great. I didn't even notice it until Hannah said something. You have a good writing style.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Codewords are supposed to be unnoticable. -N-

But when Sirius discovers a group of fourth-years who are bound and determined to steal the Marauders’ title of Greatest Hogwarts Troublemakers he wages war, rallying his friends so they can maintain their legacy.

and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

September 2012: HEY guess what I couldn't wait, and the third installment, "World Enough," is UP NOW under James/Lily. Or just under my name. Or at this link: http://fanfiction.mugglenet.com/viewstory.php?sid=92131. Yay! :D
AHHHHHH!!!!! Why have you not written the next chapter! Oh my gosh! I'm on a James/Lily hype right now and this is definitely one of the best I've read thus far! Keep writing!
Author's Response: i have, it's in queue! sit tight :) thanks so much, I'm glad you like it!!
“You and I, we'll be young forever!” *
After a long, interesting, sweltering summer the Marauders are back for their sixth year, and they feel as though their teenage lives have only just begun.
James has been pursuing Lily for years, and he sure as hell isn't going to give up now. Sirius might actually be falling in love (though of course that can't be possible, can it?), and Remus is struggling with problems in his own family. Meanwhile, Peter has to decide how much worth he can put on friends who he will never live up to. And then there's Lily Evans, a girl who's starting to fall for the very man she swore not to. Diana McKinnon, her best friend, keeps finding herself staring at a certain grey-eyed Gryffindor, even though every piece of logic she has tells her that he's trouble.
But even though there's the looming danger of NEWTs, pranks, oily Slytherins, and physical education, a much bigger problem has presented itself. The Marauders' sixteen-year-old world isn't the safe place it used to be. There are rumors of danger and dark magic throughout the school, and of a powerful dark wizard named Voldemort. The Gryffindor sixth years have to decide where their true allegiances lie and how much they are willing to sacrifice for a war that seems impossible to win.

Note 3/26: Ok guys so I know that I haven't updated in forever, but I promise I'll finish the story! I'm struggling with some stuff, but hang in there, I haven't forgotten.
Lots and lots and lots of love, Olivia
Very nice! I like the intensity of the fight between Walburga and Sirius :)
Summary: We always knew that James Potter and Lily Evans would end up together, otherwise the Boy-Who-Lived would never have been born, but no one else did until the day they got married. Many people still believed the marriage would end in failure, but the two were deeply in love from a connection they developed during their seventh year. This is a story of that connection.
I really like your style! I noticed it's been about a year since anyone commented or anything. Is this story still going to be continued?
Summary: There's a reason that adults don't usually play hide and seek - especially when they are nothing more than overgrown children.
Oh my gosh. I wish I could have laughed out loud while reading this, but, alas, I'm at the library. Great writing!
