I’m an avid writer who spends most of her time listening to music.
I’m okay with life and I always roll with the punches.
My favorite HP character is Draco because let’s face it: In the books he’s epic and in the movies he’s hot.
Swimming is basically my life.
Lydia is my favorite band.
If you're tall, wear Axe, and give me a vanilla chai latte I may just have to marry you.
I have been in love with Harry Potter for about as long as Paige (if not longer). I am a huge fan of both the books and the movies, though the books
are wayyyy... better. (Paige agrees.)
Favorite Books: Harry Potter (duh!), The Mortal Instruments, Pretty Little Liars, Percy Jackson, Maximum Ride, Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, Hunger Games, anything by Sarah Dessen, Wondrous Strange, Inkheart, and many more.
Favorite Movies: Harry Potter (again - duh!) Pirates of the Caribbean, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Avatar, Sorcerer's Apprentice, Prince of Persia, Red Riding Hood, Aliens, Speed, Underworld, Underworld: Evolution, Easy A, Vampires Suck, and more.
Favorite Bands/Artists: See Paige.
Favorite HP Characters: I'm a HUGE Marauders fan - Sirius is my all-time favorite HP character, but I love James, Remus, and Peter too. Other than that I'm a big fan of the trio, Luna, Fred and George (and the rest of the Weasley clan), Snape, Dumbledore, Tonks, and Neville.
I absolutely HATE: Cho and Umbridge. Grrrrr.... Rita Skeeter too.
Favorite Pairings: Hermione/Draco (I was about ready to barf when I first saw this pairing listed, but then I started reading them and most of them are AMAZING), Sirius/OC (it sucks that there are hardly any on MNFF), Ron/Hermione (some), and James/Lily (most are overly cliched, but there are plenty of good ones).
Never Forgiven, Never Forgotten: A H/G, D/G fic about cheating, etc. Can't say too much without telling who Ginny chooses...
The Promise: A one-shot about a Harry/Ginny confrontation.
All Alone: A short Ron/Hermione one-shot that might be continued. ;)
Broken - Draco/Hermione I'm currently working on. Can't say too much here without giving away the plot. Currently, I'm planning on the story being ten chapters plus an epilogue. Chapter three should be out soon!
The Three: A one-shot humor fic that we had tons of fun writing. We still have some stuff to edit, but it should be good :)
Summary: What's it like being shipped every which way in the wizarding world? The ladies dish the dirt, the good, the bad, and the very, very ugly.
you should definetly do a "what's a fandom boy to do?" tht would be amazing!
Summary: Hermione has been taken captive and held in a confinement chamber. With nothing to think about, she begins to reflect on what her life has been reduced to.
I liked it okay. You're writing is magnificent, so that's a plus, but I didn't quite agree with the story. Both Hermione and Ginny seemed really OOC to me. I can't imagine Ginny selling Hermione out and I can't imagine Hermione wanting to torture Ginny.
Summary: Merope Riddle's final hours, as she thinks about blood purity and ten galleons, and why she doesn't care to live. Oneshot. Rather dark. Rating for minor cursing and situation.
Merope had always hated the darkness, and she knew that tonight would be a very dark night.
I loved it! I think Merope is an interesting character that doesn't get much credit and rarely shows up in fan fiction. Your writing is amazing as well. It's captivating and flows like all stories should. Great job! :D
Summary: Lily has a secret. Afraid of her secret being revealed, she locks herself away behind a mask of perfection. What will it take for her to realise no-one is perfect?
I enjoyed it! The writing was good and the topic was believable. I never imagined Lily being one to cut herself, but it made sense when you explained it. Great job!
Summary: All she wanted was love. What she got was betrayal and a broken heart...
I really liked it! :D Althea was an interesting character that was easy to relate to. I felt awful for her after what James did. I agree that though James did come off as the bad guy, he would've seen it differently so he gets some credit there.
Summary: Sirius's descent into madness, in thirteen steps.
It feels like he's a ticking time-bomb, only he doesn't know how long he's got left.
Oh my gosh, this story was so sad!! I loved it though. It was well-written and followed Sirius's character very well. Great job!
Summary: Lyzzie's father is having an affair. She's known about it since her third year, and he promised her again and again that it was over. But now he's back with the other woman, and Lyzzie can think of only one way to deal with her pain- by causing herself more. Rated Professors for language and some pretty intense self-injury. Takes place during the trio's sixth year at Hogwarts.
***Hey, I've decided to just leave this as a one-shot. I feel like I've left this part of my life behind me, and I have no more inspiration for this story. Sorry!***
Great story! It was very well written. I love Luna and I can totally see her acting that way.
Pride and Pre-Juiced Plums: A Potter's Pentagon Love Story by Schmerg_The_Impaler
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 265]
Summary: A companion piece to the Potter's Pentagon trilogy... it's better if you've read the Potter's Pentagon trilogy, but you don't necessarily have to.
It's five years after Emma Weasley and her chums graduated from Hogwarts. Ted and Ivy are married, Haley is working at Madame Puddifoot's while trying desperately to break into show business, Jordan's doing whatever it is he does, and Emma is an Auror trainee working as a guard at the Chudley Cannons' stadium. The Cannons have actually been doing much better lately, due to their new star Beater, Tyrone Thomas. Unfortunately, Tyrone is Emma's ex-boyfriend. OH, THE AWKWARDNESS.
Follow Emma through her awkward adventures told in her usual insane way, as she experiences angst, hilarity, obnoxiously strange people, misadventures involving a deceptively dashing cad, Haley's wedding, the birth of Ted and Ivy's baby, and her own eventual descent into LURRRVE.
Written for the marvellous Vindictus Viridian's Pride and Prejudice NEWTs class on the Fanfiction Beta Boards, based on Jane Austen's fantastic novel, "Pride and Prejudice.".
Nominated in the 2008 Quicksilver Quills Awards for Best Non-Canon Romance Story! And its lovely (haha) heroine, Emma Weasley, received two nominations for Best Female Original Character, while Haley Potter and Ivy Potter each received one! Thanks so much, guys!
HILARIOUS! I love the Pride and Prejudice summaries. I'm glad Jordan is finally in this story. As annoying as he can be sometimes he's fun to read about. :D
Author's Response: Thank you! I love Jordan. He's my favorite character. But don't tell Tyrone, he'd cry for hours.
Summary: This is tribute to the four famous pranksters of Hogwarts. This is a one-shot that has their final moments in life.They all are different, yet all the same. They were united but still divided until they found each other once more in death. They were brothers, they were friends, they are the Marauders of Gryffindor. I present to you: Masters Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot, and Prongs in their final performance...
Very, very sad and sweet. I love the Marauders, and it always breaks my heart reading about their deaths and struggles. This is beautifully written and conveys the pain they all went through, especially Peter, whom, to me, would be the hardest to justify.
Summary: In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, five men deal with remorse, yet in completely different ways. It affects the soul, mentality and even the body. This poem explores the way these five men cope with wrong actions and the guilt that follows it.
By the way, I'm not J K Rowling. I doubt you're surprised. All reviews receive a response!
I enjoyed this poem. :) It was well written and flowed easily, like a poem should (Unfortunately not all do...) The five men were Mad-Eye, Remus, Ron, Peter, and Voldemort, right?
Author's Response: I'm relieved you think my poem flows easily and is well written--I know exactly what you mean about poems not doing that. The five men were actually Harry (feeling guilty ABOUT Mad-Eye) Ron, Remus, Peter and Voldemort. I'm really glad that you enjoyed my poem and I hope to see one of your reviews again soon! ~Soraya~
Summary: There's always someone who you're always going to make excuses for, isn't there?
A HP poem.
All reviews receive a response!
I liked it! It was a very sweet poem.
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it and that you thought it was a sweet poem, because that is what I was getting at. Hoping to see you in my inbox again! ~Soraya~
Summary: For and about all the Harry Potter characters who made choices, for good or ill, according to what they thought, rather than what was expected from them because of their house, blood status, etc.
I liked it! It was a sweet poem that's really true and says a lot about life.
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it! Thanks for the review!
Summary: What started out as a scheme for revenge lead Hermione to question her happiness and emotional commitment to the one she thought would be hers.
Very good! I like how you describe Hermione's feelings about both Ron and Cormac. Keep up the awesome work! :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I was so worried people would react negatively because of the pairing alone, so you have no idea how happy your review has made me :)
As the world around them darkens, Lily, James and the Marauders struggle to find reasons to live - friendships, love, and the future.
Now a series of one-shots!
This was really good. You describe things very well, and the plot was believable. I'm a huge Marauder Era fan, and, to me, this fic did justice to how they might have felt about their lives through the first war. Great job! :)
Author's Response: Thanks a lot! Yeah, the thought occured to me recently as I was rereading Deathly Hallows that James and Lily were only twenty-one when they died. They were still growing up, barely even adults. I wanted to communicate the loss of innocence they must have felt as the war progressed. Glad hit the nail on the head, then!
I loved it! Your writing is excellent and this was a very moving story. Good job!!
Author's Response: Thank you savvy! I'm glad you enjoyed it :) I've another story that might be up which focuses on Lucius' POV of the affair.
Summary: Then I saw Mum and Dad’s faces. It was the first time I had ever seen our father cry. And just like that, my already shattered heart split again. You broke our father, Al. Even Voldemort couldn’t do that. Dad looked like someone had stabbed him in the stomach, then twisted the knife for good measure. He and mum, they raised you, raised you to be strong, and you let them down. You failed them. You were a coward. A coward who broke our father.
Oh my god, this story was so moving. I'm sitting her crying right now! James' perspective was written so well - I could feel his pain really clearly. You do a great job of conveying emotions. Suicide (or what was assumed to be a suicide) is a really sensitive topic, but you show a lot of insight as to how people who have lost people they loved to it probably feel. This is a good one-shot, but I think there's an amazing story here that you could develop if you wanted to. Keep up the AWESOME writing. :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review. Somehow everyone seems to be crying. . . I wasn't sure about writing a story with this sensitive of an issue but I hope I did it justice. Alex and I worked hard on it, so the reviews me a lot to me. I've always wondered how people coped with the loss of loved ones, and for some odd reason all my stories seem to deal with death. I don't think I'll develop it, but I may write a companion piece. Thank you so much for the review! Ellie
Summary: Dudley has a strange way of celebrating his cousin’s birthday.
This is noblefate of Ravenclaw writing for Round Two of the 2012 Madam Pomfrey’s One-Shot Character Triathlon.
This was a very good portrayal of Dudley's character. I've always liked how Dudley goes from being a mindless bully to someone who actually seems to think about his family and his life and Harry. Great job!!
Author's Response: Thank you! Even though it isn't clear in canon, I always felt that there was more Dudley wanted to say at the start of DH, that, as you said, he moves from this mindless bully in the first few books to someone who actually cares about the feelings of others. I like to think there's hope for him yet. ~Megan
Summary: "Draco's heart pounded more than ever before. He had to believe what he had just done was right. He had to believe that. So he didn't let himself question it, not once. " - A one-shot during The Battle of Hogwarts about Draco Malfoy and the boy who set him free.
This was so touching!! I started crying when I found out the boy was Colin and when he died. I've always liked Draco's character and I think you did an excellent job portraying him. Most people just see him as a spoiled, fearful coward, but this shows a whole different side of him.
