I'm Maddie. I'm 16 and from New York.
To anyone who received an email regarding A Secondhand Life,
It's the first and last. I'm not pestering for reviews, I just thought that after such a long time, I'd go back and see if anyone who at one point showed interest was willing to come back and read more.
Click here to read my first and only drabble!
It won second place in the Hufflepuff common room. Christmas-themed, post-DH, rated G. Features Albus, James, and Harry.
Wanna do me a favor? Got a myspace? Add Scarlet Thunder my band! If not just listen to our stuff. Thanks!
A bit AU, especially jumping in with the Dursleys, but interesting.
Author's Response: Yes, I agree. Everything will be explained as the story progesses, however. Thanks for reviewing!
Ooh, reminds me of the fifth book with Harry's dreams of the Department of Mysteries. Connection? Ahh, only you know I guess. Whatever. Great chapter.
Author's Response: Someone else mentioned that as well, but I will admit it wasn\'t a conscious connection. I\'m glad it works, though. *shrugs happily*
Yay, I love cliffhangers!! Even small ones like these. =]
Author's Response: Trust me, there are more cliffhangers to come. I was not overly popular when the story was incomplete and I left a few cliffies dangling. :)
All I got is shameless praise. No constructive criticism, because it was a very good chapter. The OOC wasn't even that big. Great job!!!! ♥♥♥
Author's Response: Hahaha! Thank you, I appreciate it.
I still find Malfoy a little awkward here, but it will all fall into place about ten chapters from now. :)
*double sigh* Awesome chapter!!
Author's Response: Thanks!
Your cahpters are short, but they are so interesting and hold a lot of information! Great chapter.
Author's Response: I like short chapters. That\'s just me, though. Get as much information in as you can and get out. :)
It is a little bit OOC, but whatever. It makes sense nevertheless. Good chapter!
Author's Response: Thanks. You\'ve already seen the reason for the OOC-ness by now, but I hope it made sense after the fact.
This is so not logical Hermione, but it's okay, because we still love her!! Nice chapter!!
Author's Response: Could you be logical in the face of Draco being pleasant and sitting on a hotel room bed? *winks* I\'m glad you liked the chapter.
Good chapter!! ♥♥♥
Author's Response: Thank you! :)
Good chapter!! It was very well done, but I noticed a small error in the second paragraph after the break. Where you wrote "shown" it should be spelled "shone." Other than that, everything was fine!! =]
Author's Response: Excellent! Thank you for the good catch - it is fixed. Three people read a chapter and still sometimes bad homonyms get through! *bangs head on desk*
Good chapter. On to the next!! -->
Author's Response: Thanks, thanks! :)
Ahh! Cliffhanger!! Great chapter!!
Author's Response: I thought you might like that cliffie! Thanks very much.
Holy crap, this has to be one of the flippen most amzing chapters I've ever read!!! I'm a R/Hr shipper AND a D/Hr shipper, this chapter is good and bad for me!! lol GREAT chapter. This is a very original idea. ♥♥♥
Author's Response: I\'m laughing because this is such an awesome comment! Thank you! I\'m really glad you think this twist is original. I also hope it explains some of that OOC-ness. :)
Aw gee. Looks like the D/Hr part is nearly over. On to R/Hr!!! ♥
Author's Response: Yes, indeed, Ron is on his way. . .
Classic Weasley time. Good chapter!!
Author's Response: Thank you. I do love Ron when he bumbles a bit and teases Hermione. :)
Poor Ron, he has no clue what is really going on. Good chapter!!
Author's Response: I know, poor kid. He\'ll find out soon enough - and thanks!
This is such a good chapter; bittersweet, like you described. I loved it. ♥
Author's Response: Thank you. This is my favorite chapter of this story so I really do appreciate it.
::sigh:: Good chapter. I love Ron/Hermione shipping. ♥
Author's Response: Aww, thanks! I do have such a soft spot for Ron and Hermione. . .
Nice chapter. I especially liked the reference to Dumbledore in the end.
Author's Response: DD is my man - I couldn\'t let the rest of the story go by without him. :)
That was such a good story. The comparison of Ron against Viktor and Draco was very good, as well as the last paragraph. Well done!! =]
Author's Response: Thanks so much!
I just answered all of your comments from today and I appreciate it. So much reading in the past two days! I\'m really glad you liked the whole story. Cheers!
