Hey guys! I have been pretty out of things for awhile, but I'm determined to make a great return! I should have declared a semi-hiatus, but instead I just kind of disappeared . . . .

If for some weird reason you would want to read the stories I have up, go right ahead. I must warn you that I deleted quite a few of them 'cause they were so embarassing and these aren't much better.

I think that there will be some more stories up in the near future . . . . stay tuned.

Thanks to all who have helped me out <3 I love you all.

Dumbledore's Worst Nightmare by Colores

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: What did Dumbledore see when he drank the potion in the cave? How would he have known that his strengths of love and compassion could be manipulated into his curses by the Dark Lord...?

This is for the March one-shot challenge. I am Colores of the Hufflepuff House.

Wow. My oh my. This story was just so amazing.

I absolutely adored the way that you made the quotes from the book fit in so seamlessly with your story. I imagine that took alot of effort. You combined a great story with these quotes perfectly. It was, for lack of a better word, amazing. Phenomenal.

You captured Dumbledore oh-so-perfectly. This is exactly like something he would imagine. And it is exactly what Voldemort would have done too. Super.

I enjoyed every single aspect of this fic. It is one of those ones you just want to read again, to make sure you got everything out of it.

I would like to really applaud you for this fic. It was a job really well done.

Congratulations; I wish I could write something like this.

Hi! I stumbld across this fic, and being in search of a good humor fic decided to read this one.

Let me just start by saying that this was a really good story. I enjoyed it, the plot was a little bit unoriginal, you know the whole "Annoying man drives me crazy" kind of thing, but I enjoyed it. It satisfied my want for a humor fic. I enjoyed it.

But then, the ending. My God, that seals the deal. That is the absolute most clever ending I have ever heard. I still can't believe it, and this is what makes this story so special. You did a amazing job with this ending. People will remember this. I know I will.

Fantastic work. I loved it!

The Free Elf by clabbert2101

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: A poem following the events leading up to and including Dobby's death. From Harry's point on view.
Reviewer: FawkesToTheRescue Signed
Date: 01/16/11 Title: Chapter 1: The Free Elf

Heyy, Bella. I like this poem a lot. It was all going great, flowing along real smoothly until the last line/stanza. I stopped, and I was like "Oh." At first I thought that you could simply take out that line, but then I realized it would be weird. It's especially weird since it's in it's own stanza, y'know? The last stanza seems long enough already, since you have couplets and then throw in a quatrain, but I'm not sure how you can change it. I love the meaning and everything. The rest of the poem reads great, but I'm not sure what to do . . . oh well. You rock Bellalalalalala.

Full Moon by luinrina

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: Every month a werewolf experiences the worst – and it’s always when the full moon rises.

This is a poem about the Lycantrophy’s curse.
Reviewer: FawkesToTheRescue Signed
Date: 09/23/10 Title: Chapter 1: Lycanthrophy


You know, there are a lot of Lupin poems out there, but this one was amazing.

I really liked it because it had a lot of contrast in it.

Firstly, I like how your first stanza describes the night as a normal person would see it. And boy, I am reading this at night and it almost makes me shiver, the imagery is so good. I mean, it seems so, so, real! You've got a gift for that.

I like how your second stanza describes how the transformation happens. This too is well written.

"Soft eyes turn wild with one single glance." is really a good line. It really shows how different Lupin is in his different forms.

And the third stanza, the transformation? Spot. On.

Of course, the last one is just the greatest way to end it.

Well, I think you did a fantastic job on this poem. Short and sweet and I will definitely remember it!


Author's Response: Thanks, Megan!

Green Tinted Hufflepuff by mgle_teacher

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Draco gets sorted into Hufflepuff, very much to his dismay.
Reviewer: FawkesToTheRescue Signed
Date: 09/17/10 Title: Chapter 1: Green Tinted Hufflepuff

Hello! I had a lot of fun reading this fic; it was quite the fun fic to read. I'm sure it was a blast to write.

It is a wonder how well you made this work out. Of course it is AU and I do have the slightest trouble believing that Draco would really be okay with being in Hufflepuff. But you very nearly made it seem believable. Which by the way is a compliment.

Very good writing here. I really enjoyed it, and I had a blast reading it! Keep writing, and happy day!


Author's Response: It was a total blast to write! I would love to continue writing more in this "verse" but it drove me insane trying to fit canon around the fact Draco was a Hufflepuff just in the first year! Lol. I can't imagine trying to do that for the other six books.

Fears - and Hope by luinrina

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: ‘Hope shall die last, Minerva.’

A bright morning, but will it be bright for everyone? Or is the rising sun painting an illusion only?

Reviewer: FawkesToTheRescue Signed
Date: 09/19/10 Title: Chapter 1: Fears... and Hope: Prologue


(I do hope it is alright if I call you by your first name!) I have read two of your fics. The first one was 'Across the Pumpkin.' I remember telling you that one of the beauties of fanfiction is that you can take a small moment and turn it into something worth reading. Well, here again, this stands true. I'm learning to like this alot.

You take a small moment and made it something worth reviewing; something worth telling you how much I enjoyed it. This fic was short yet sweet, and how I adored it.

As I've no clue where you received your inspiration for your main them, 'Hope shall die last', I simply fell in love with it. It is so like something Albus would say, is it not? And oh, how it is true. You turned this little eight hundred word fic into inspiration. And not many can achieve this.

You know, I always expected Minerva and Albus to be almost the best of friends. They seem so alike, in certain ways. They way you portrayed them here is outstanding. Albus - hopeful, pacing, warm. Minerva - strong, but worried, scared for the safety of those she loves. Truly remarkable, if I do say so myself.

Fawkes. Why, look at my penname! How I love Fawkes! Not many write about this extraordinary creature, so it was a joy when you did! Warmed my heart, it did.

One thing I feel I need to comment on is the usage of "the man." When most visualize a "man", what do they think of? Do they think of a nineteen year old with a six pack and a cigarette? Do they think of a business man with some nasal spray? Most would not think of someone like Dumbledore as a "man." They would probably picture a man to be much younger, or something like that. But Dumbledore is a man, a man if I've ever heard of one. Why, what qualities of a man does Dumbledore not possess? Dumbledore is most definitely a man, and you bring tears to my eyes at the beauty of this. Well done, well done.

"What are you planning, Tom?" Could you get any more like Dumbledore? This was the moment I could picture most in my mind. In fact, I think this is so outrageously canon that Jo should add this instant in her books! Haha, maybe not, but do you see what I'm getting at? I was blown away by the emotion and power in this moment here. A fine job, indeed.

Why, this was most entertaining. Thank you for giving me something to do. And I do hope that you enjoy your day, and keep writing. Please.


Author's Response: Wow. I'm absolutely speechless. This was such a wonderful review. I haven't received that much praise, and praise in general for quite a while. Like my story warmed your heart, your review warmed mine. Thank you so much for making my day. It's been a beautiful surprise to receive that review.

And of course you may call me Bine. Thank you again, so very much. *hugs*

Across the Pumpkin by luinrina

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Everyone is on Christmas holidays, only Sirius and Lily are left at Hogwarts. And when one is locked out of the common room with someone else, what else to do than to talk?
Reviewer: FawkesToTheRescue Signed
Date: 09/17/10 Title: Chapter 1: Across the Pumpkin

How cute. You would assume that Lily and Sirius would become friends. They just seem like the kind of people that would, don't they?

Anyhow, I really enjoyed this story. Every moment counts. That's what's neat about fanfiction - you can take a small moment, like a conversation between Lily and Sirius, and turn it into something worth reading and enjoying. With good authorship skills, of course.

I think you did an incredible job on this fic. It was cute and believable, with a nice plot and a warm theme. It brightened up my heart a little. Don't ask me why - it just did. ;)

Thanks for writing this. I enjoyed it.


Author's Response: Thank you for such a lovely review! I'm happy that you enjoyed reading it. There's no greater compliment to an author than a content reader.

The Escape to Shell Cottage by mudbloodproud

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Everyone knows Dobby took Dean Thomas, Luna Lovegood and Mr Ollivander away from Malfoy Manor. What we don’t know is what happened in those first few minutes at Shell Cottage.

This is what happened from Dean’s prospective.

I do not own anything you recognise in this story. It all belongs to J.K. Rowling. I am just thankful to be able to play in her world for a little while.

Reviewer: FawkesToTheRescue Signed
Date: 09/17/10 Title: Chapter 1: The Escape

Hello. I stumbled across this story, and thought it looked interesting so I gave it a try.

Let me start off by saying that I think one of the saddest things that happened in the whole Harry Potter series was the death of Dobby. It made me cry. I don't cry.

Anyhow, as the main point of this story may seem to be Dean's visit to Shell Cottage, it seems to me as a subtle reflection on Dobby. Wishful thinking? (I'm working right now on writing a tribute to Dobby.) Maybe I am thinking that this is the main-ish point because of the last line. To some it may not feel like closure, but to me it does.

I liked it. It also shows that good stories don't have to be real long. Good work!


Author's Response: Thank you for your comments. I can honestly say I cried through most of DH. This was just one of those quick spurts of writing from someone else's POV other than Harry's. A tribute to Dobby, hmmm, I would love to read that. Thanks again, I'm glad you enjoyed it. Terri

The Silver Doe by hestiajones

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Severus casts his Patronus and remembers the one woman he ever loved...
Reviewer: FawkesToTheRescue Signed
Date: 09/26/10 Title: Chapter 1: The Silver Doe


(I really, really, really want to be in Hufflepuff!!!)

This was a cool poem. (And I can't believe you thought you would never write poetry again!!! *gasp!*)

I love Snape. I feel such pity for him, sometimes I think maybe he deserved to at least date Lily. He's such a sweetheart . . .

Stanza 1.) Memories . . . . they're all he has now. It's enough to keep him (technically) away from being alone, but he still feels like all he is is lonely. Because you know, sometimes memories are not enough. Truly, memories can make you even lonelier! This part has such an emotional effect on the reader that it makes me want to bow my head down and frown. Good work.

Stanza 2.) But these memories, they're so old. Should he even look back now? But they haunt him so . . . he must. I enjoyed this part.

Stanza 3.) This one's my favorite! It is so true that he loved her so much, and he was so afraid of losing her to someone like James Potter. Ha. But now he looks back on when he truly had her. So incredibly sad . . . I think I'm going to cry now.

Stanza 4.) But, alas, she is still in his heart. But sometimes, memories are not enough. Good job with this one. And I like how it sort of continues into the next one.

Stanza 5.) Classic! When to tell someone you love them?! When they're already gone? Would that even do anything? One of the great parts about this stanza is that it relates right back to the third stanza. I loved that.

And you know, any other person would have ended it with "Always." But the thing that makes you special, even with your first poem, is that you end it with that doubt that makes the reader really think. So powerful . . . you're amazing!

This was a super first poem. My first (and only) poem was not nearly this good. And you've grown so much too as a writer. Not that this was bad, no of course not at all!!!!, but you have really improved. You went from good to spectacular. I love reading your fics. And reviewing them.

This poem characterizes Snape so well. I've never read one lke that before. AMAZING job with Snape. You really have him down.

Fantastic job, as always.



Author's Response: Thanks, Megan!

I am so sorry I haven't responded before. I actually thought I had, but apparently not. Anyway, this was such a great review for my first poem. :) Again, thank you for reading my other fics and encouraging me. That means a lot.


Peace in Heaven by Equinox Chick

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: After decades of hatred, a friendship begins...

Severus Snape wakes up after Nagini's bite in a hospital bed. He is dead, of that there is no doubt, but he cannot move on as the others who fell in battle have.


I am Equinox Chick from Hufflepuff and this is my entry in the November in-house banner/story challenge.

Author's Note: For this competiition, the writers in Hufflepuff picked banners designed by other Puffs and wrote a story based on the picture, title and catchphrase. The banner I chose was by Terri (mudbloodproud).

Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling. I think it's safe to assume that you all know that.

I am indebted to the truly wonderful (and QSQ award winning) Emma (Amortentia x) who has beta'd this fic. Not only did she sort out my punctuation, but she had some extremely good suggestions throughout the story.
Reviewer: FawkesToTheRescue Signed
Date: 09/16/10 Title: Chapter 1: Peace in Heaven

A good Severus story always catches my attention. Anyways, I typed your name into the search box; I wanted to read something good, and I know I can always find that from you. So I saw this story and I thought, "Aw, how sweet. Let's see what it's like."

And when I read it I was just amazed. This story is so realistic, it is unbelievable. It could very well be canon.

Like always, you have your characterization spot on. Like I said, the characters and plot make this story seem almost like it could be a "missing moment" kind of story.

Sirius and Severus, what an interesting thought. You'd always think that if a Marauder and Severus would be friends, someone would make it James and Severus, but this was interesting. Nicely done.

Sometimes when I read a story like this with Severus in the afterlike and Lily thanking him, it is just uuugggghhh because it is so not Lily! This story was like a breath of fresh air because I could really believe that it was Lily. She's a hard character to capture, but of course you do it perfectly.

Well, very nicely done. I enjoyed it.


Author's Response: Wow! Thank you very much. I actually found this a hard story to write and nearly chucked it away, but it was written for a challenge ... and I can never resist a challenge. It was the introduction of other characters like Lily and also Tonks that made me finish it. If I'd just written Severus and Sirius then I think they'd have killed each other in the first paragraph (odd, can the dead 'die' again?) Reallypleased you liked the characterisation. I find Lily the hardest to write. Thanks again ~Carole~

A Tale of Six Perspectives by hestiajones

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: The whoosh of a speeding Bludger was followed by the scream of a female voice.

Slytherin Chaser Armis Berkley was knocked off her broom, and she fell through the air.

James Potter, Gryffindor Chaser, gripped his broom and sped towards the falling body, even though he knew he’d never reach her in time.

Severus Snape blanched. Berkley always pestered him in the common room, asking him to help her with Charms homework.

Sirius Orion Black jumped up from his seat as the rest of the spectators did. A single obscene curse escaped his lips.

Peter Pettigrew prayed. Dear God, please don’t…no…no…

Lily Evans gasped as an odd monotonous sound rang in her ears.

Remus John Lupin shuddered involuntarily. DUMBLEDORE!

This is hestiajones of Hufflepuff writing for the final in the MWPP class on the Beta Boards. This story has just been nominated for a QSQ in the Best Marauder Era category. :D Thanks!

Aaaaah, Natalie. Is it okay if I call you by your first name, Natalie? I do hope so . . . .

Anyway, I was scrolling through your stories, and this caught my eye. Of course, I don't see how this wouldn't catch anybody's eye, but that's beside the point.

I think I should start by pointing out the fact that a story from one perspective is hard to do. (At least to me, a bad writer, it is.) So what about six? Well . . .


And that's the truth of the matter.

I think I'll review each perspective . . .

1. James. We all know James. We all love James. We all know that James does . . . well everything, right? So what happens when something is beyond his reach? Well, nobody says it better than you. James - the indestructable. What? No? What was that? Oh? He . . . cried? Yep, that's right. I mean, what guy doesn't cry? You've got this perfect here. I love the way you characterized James. And he is so very not cocky! He knows who he is, what he is, and he accepts the mundane aspects of his being. Your James? 10/10.

2. Wowee. Severus. He's gonna join the Dark Lord. Boy is he cool. I'm gonna go kill people! Yay yay yay yay yay! STOP! HOLD YOUR HORSES! Woah, man. He just almost saw someone die. And now he realizes the scary possibility of what death really is. He never thought about it before. Uh oh . . . what to do? Your Severus? 11/10.

3. Sirius. Tehehe. What a character. Of course, the kind of man who would want to live life to the fullest. Normally you'd expect this out of James, right? Wrong! I love Sirius here. Dying with a smile. Is that not what actually happened? Your Sirius? 10/10.

4. Peter. Always so hard . . .Does anybody truly know what Peter's like? I have my doubts. So, you say Peter looks forward to a new tomorrow. In my opinion, he's the kind of person who would be fearful and timid, and so unsure that he may dread a new tomorrow. Just my opinion. But of course, I still loved reading your Peter.

5. Lily. A near-death experience already? I like it. She knows sort of what death may have been like, but overlooked it. Your Lily? 9/10. Still fabulous, but maybe you could add more.

6. Oh, and Remus. Usually he is overlooked. But you have him here as like the main man! You TOTALLY have him PERFECT! I give you a high five, and a 1000000000000000000/10. (A pretty big honor.) ;)

Well, congrats. I loved it. It was something unique and exciting. Congrats, and happy day!


Author's Response: Hello Norberta!

Hahaha! Your review made my day! It made me laugh, too. I don't think anyone has graded my work before (shame on them!) so I was really excited to see it. :D:D

I am really happy you liked this story. I had a hard time finishing it, and I am afraid I may have rushed it a bit because I was writing with a deadline in mind. >.< I am usually scared by the prospect of writing the Marauders as there's so many ways you could go wrong with them. But thankfully, I managed to pull off this story, and I get thoroughly excited when I get positive reviews for it. :D

Hmmm...Your thoughts on Peter are interesting, and I actually agree that he is timid and a little fearful. But he wasn't really being optimistic in my fic - he was scared of the prospect of dying.

As far as Remus goes, I was afraid I might have cut his part short a bit, but as I got 100000000000000/10, I'm now thinking I wrote him extremely well. Hahaha!

Thanks for the lovely review, Norberta!

This was a very interesting story. I've never read anything quite like it, and I must say that I enjoyed it.

I loved this! I never quite thought that Molly would give a speech like this, like I thought she would break down crying or something, but I liked this.

I like your writing Jess. It's about things other people may not think about and it's unique and fun! Expect even more reviews from me! ;)


P.S. I sort of doubt you've noticed, but I'm undergoing an identity crisis . . . . I've changed my sig like 3 times. I used my pen name, then I used a pen name for my pen name now I just use my name. Haha.

Have a good Day!

Author's Response:

Why thank you for the lovely review, Megan. :D

To be honest, I think you probably picked my worst fic ever to read and review. That being said, though, you'll probably enjoy the rest of my fics more. I'm glad that you found it evocative, because it was supposed to inspire those sort of emotions. 

Thanks again for visiting, and I hope to see you soon.


P.S. - No worries about the sig identity crisis. I used to be that way, as well, until I got too lazy to change it anymore. :D
