Hello, I'm Annie, 15-year-old from Melbourne, Australia. Opened Philosopher's Stone at age seven, never looked back.
I'll Pick You Up by MagEd.
That'd be Sirius Orion Black. Witty, rebellious, intelligent, everything I've wanted to be but am not. But as far as a romantic relationships go, I'm all for me and James Potter.
Order of the Phoenix hands down. For those of you who think it's too long - it isn't long enough!
Lily & James.
Lily/James or Marauder Era.
I'm on a hiatus-sorta-thing at the moment due to some complete sh*t going on in my life right now. I'll be back one day though. Probably. Hopefully.
“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
Congratulations on validation! Maybe I wasn't such a bad beta after all ...
Author's Response: No worries! You are, as I said in the Author's Note, awesomely awesome. :) :) Thanks so much. Again, you rock. I'm almost done with Chapter Four! ~Olivia <3 P.S. Did I mention you're terribly amazing?
Summary: How would you react if everything you had always believed impossible turned up in the centre of your family?
A series of one-shots narrated by Muggles whose sibling, lover or child turned out to be a wizard.
This is really, really good. I'll be hanging out for the updates!
As I was leaving the house, his second wife appeared on the stairs. She gave me a shock. Although she was a brunette, her face looked startlingly like Carol’s. But it was only as I drove away from the Turpins’ that I realised where I had seen Phil Turpin’s face before.
Apart from the colouring, it was nearly identical to the face I saw every day in my shaving mirror.
No offence, but I dot really understand why they looked the same. Can you rephrase for me, please? I'm a bit thick-headed sometimes.
Author's Response: Thanks for writing in, Annie! I'm glad you enjoyed it despite not quite getting the minor point. I didn't necessarily write clearly, but what I meant to imply was that Carol had married the same kind of man both times - similar in looks and similar in personality. Therefore Trevor's excuse that Lisa wasn't really his daughter was flimsy: chances were, even if her mother had stayed with her natural father, Phil Turpin might have had a similar reaction to Lisa's magic. Phil also married the same type of woman both times, i.e. he might have become less violent but he hadn't really changed. So this isn't really a story about kin selection and rejection of the inconvenient stepchild. It's a story about fear, disgust and rejection of magic itself.
Yeah, I know I've rewiewed this before but this is AMAZING that it deserved more than one puny review!
Firstly, thanks for updating so regularly!
Secondly, this chapter reduced me to tears, and I'm not even sure why. The ending was just so lovely and beautiful and sweet ... *squee*
Can't wait for next chap!

Author's Response: Dear Annie, I am so pleased that you liked my story enough to cry over it! I think the Grangers are very tragic people; even though Hermione loves them, we see in canon that she has almost no relationship with them. It was almost surprising to read in DH that Hermione did care and did miss them. It was very painful to write about what it must have been like for them to lose their only child to the wizarding world. Take a cyber-tissue from me: I promise you the next episode will be a comedy. Regards, GhV
Summary: Remus Lupin has always been an outcast, but here in Grimmauld Place he has never felt more accepted.
Sirius Black has been in hiding for over a year now, he wants freedom and is stuck in the one place he has always hated. But now that Remus is with him he can't bring himself to be anywhere else.
Could they be more than just friends?
Hey Ash, it's Annie :)
You're really good at writing. I loved the awkwardness between R and S.
Hope to read more from you soon!
Author's Response: Thanks Annie :D im working on a J/L fic so keep your fingers crossed for me (: speak soon Ash xx
Summary: When Marty Price entered the lives of the Marauders, they never expected her to come to mean so much to them. Their last years at Hogwarts were idealistic and beautiful. But a few years in the harsh outside world soon forces them to change. When faced with so much, it is unsurprising that they are tired and lonely and almost broken. Even optimists like Marty struggle to remain true to themselves - so what hope do the rest of them have when she leaves on a vital secret mission? Especially when everything else, if possible, begins crumble even further ...
Sequel to 'The Cause'
One word: YAY!!!!!!!!
I am SO glad you're posting this!
Author's Response: Ha, I'm glad! I hope it's worth it! =)
*is jumping of rainbows and clouds of happiness*
I'm really curious as to how Marty will move into Remus' life now ...
Author's Response: :D I'm glad you like it so far! And I will try and post the next part when I can, so you can find out. :P
Summary: Three brides rise with the sun on their special day, all with different perspectives and feelings about their big day
Happy birthday to Teh Bookworm!
Jess, I like you your poems rhyme perfectly, and I don't have to double-back and say things faster or slower in my head.
OK, who are they about? I reckon the first one's Narcissa, 'cos I can so imagine her flaunting a 1000 galleon dress that's all perfect and everything. I think the third one was Andromeda, 'cos of the line about 'family trees', and how she won't let them ruin her love and all that ...
But the second one ... I dunno ... *ponders* ... someone who has a sister ...
The first one is definitely Narcissa. The second was Molly (hinted by the homemade wedding dress and being a sister and a niece. Since Sirius's parents are her aunt and uncle, she is a niece. She has brothers (Gideon and Fabian), and her being a daugher... well, duh, lol. Really, though, I picked a really stupid word set for the largest amount of rhymes. D'oh!
The third is supposed to be Ginny, but I never really thought about it. Andromeda could've been a good choice for that one, as well. The family tree reference was to signify that people could just be people again and not treated differently due to their blood status. Also, she and Harry had had their chance at a normal teenage romance stolen by the war, and she felt like, on her wedding day, she was getting some of that back.
Anyway, I'm glad you liked it and appreciated the slavery I had to endure to that rhyming set. Oh, and writing ballades is difficult! Not for the faint of heart, though a sestina would be worse.
