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!
Hi everyone just to say this story is finished, there will not be any more chapters. Sorry if that wasn't clear beforeb>
Harry and Ginny are married, with a seven-year old daughter. As Ginny finds out she is pregnant with her second child, memories come back to her, good and bad. The war is over, and everyone feels safe. Shouldn’t they? Strange things are happening, mysterious plots are being formed, putting Harry and his loved ones in danger. Everyone knows he will do anything for the people he loves…Especially Ginny.
Hmm, doesn't Snape state in the fifth book that three drops of Veritaserum will do it, not just one? And I doubt Harry would trust the potion's reliability, because in book six, Dumbledore tells him that there are ways of avoiding Veritaserum, such as the antidote. Other than that, great chapter!! I almost didn't click on the link in my email, since I had gotten so many emails saying this story was updated when it really wasn't. Keep writing, this story's amazing!!
Author's Response: Thank you!! Yeah, for once it\'s relly updated! lol! Er, whoops I forgot about that in book five...I\'m sure that they say it\'s a drop somewhere else thoug..don\'t worry, the potion is real, but to be sure, the Ministry can use a \"real\" potion to be sure!
I love how you explain Ginny's emotions so well. Just one thing I keep noticing. Harry and Ginny's dauther's name is Lisle, but some people call her Lisa. Anyway, good job!
Author's Response: Thanks, i think Ginny is a very interesting character to write about, because she's not in the books much until 4, 5 and 6, and thats when you begin to notice that she has a very strong personality. And yes, Ginny and Harry's daughter's name is Lisle, but Ginny uses Lisa as a nickname (I think I wrote that in Chapter Two or one). Anyways, I'm glad to have a new reviewer!! :))
I really like how you describe Lisle. She's really cute!!
Author's Response: Thank you! It's always fun making new characters -- and Lisle was very interesting to invent, as she has some brave, noble Potter blood and also some stubborn, loyal and witty Weasley blood in her!! lol, thaks 4 reviewing again
Wow, that was really good! I love it how you show flashbacks to how she went through the exact same things with Lisle.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading on! It's been interesting for me to see how this develops, because the first few chapters weren't very good (punctuation-wise) but i see that this has definately improved! I think the best thing so far is that I have had so much friendly feedback, giving me helpful tips or nice compliments, and it really helps!! Thanks again!
Haha, I think what Hermione said at the very end was very funny. Great spin to the story!
Author's Response: Lol! I'll have to check what it was, i tink ive forgotten!! Haha! Have fun reading on, I will try to update soon (for you lovely readers). :D
Woah, that was good lol. Hmm, for names? I don't know if somebody already said this, but while I was reading one of the chapters I read the word "summery" and thought Summer would be a good name. I had another name, but I can't remember it now!! It's going to kill me, but if I do remember it, I'll let you know. Great chapter!
Author's Response: Lol!! I know that feeling, when your'e trying really REALLY hard to remember something and it bugs you all day, and then you ask someone and they just say it off the top of their heads, and you're like "Ohhh! yeah!!". lol again. Well thanks for reading ch. 6!!
I remembered. It's Phoebe, but somebody might have mentioned that already. Actually, I saw Piper already here and Phoebe or Paige (haha) would be nice too. Anyway, I also want to say that Harry has great emotions here!! lol
Author's Response: lol, Paige, Piper, Phoebe and Prue!! The Charmed Ones!! Or Buffy. hehe! Thanks for liking harry's emotions, it's fun to write about people's thoughts and personalities. =D
Summary: Lily Evans looks like your average goody-two-shoes on the surface, so why would James Potter, trouble-maker extraordinaire, fall for her? What if James saw a side of Lily that she rarely let anyone see? Get ready to see Lily teach James a few lessons... and vice versa.
Haha, that was funny. A very nice chapter. =]
Author's Response: why thank u! it seems like it was forever ago that the first chapter was written... thank u oh-so-very much for the review! we absolutely LOVE reviews!!! feel free to go into honeyduke\'s and pick out ur FAVORITE sweet! it\'s on us! :) have a MAGNIFICENT day!
Hmm....a short chapter, but good.
Author's Response: well, we both like longer chapters ourselves, but shorter chapters make it easier for us to write and update... to make up for the fact that the first few chapters go so slowly, we\'re going to start stepping it up a bit, but we don\'t think it will have a negative affect on the story. what do u think? quality is better than quantity! :) do u like pumpkin pasties? have a SUPERB day!
I liked it. It shows that Peter tries to keep up with the others, but not so well. Good job.
Author's Response: we realize that a lot of people complain about peter being given a bad time in fan fic., but seriously, they basically said he wasn\'t up to speed with the rest of the marauders in POA. we\'re glad that u seem to agree! how about a licorice wand? we hope u have a GLORIOUS day! :)
Haha, lucky James, get's to patrol with Lily.
Author's Response: it would appear that way, wouldn\'t it? well, we wouldn\'t want to give anything away, so we\'ll just stop for now... it looks like it might be time for one of dudder\'s favorite treats! ton-tongue toffee anyone??? just us? OK! have a *mummble, mummble!* :)
Summary: James Potter is running out of time to win the heart of Lily Evans. In a last attempt to make her his, he formulates a secret plan.
Will the whole thing blow up in his face? . . . Or will Lily have some secrets of her own?
Warnings: Excessive amounts of romance, jealousy, and PMS.
I'm a'comin with the newest chapter!!
I wonder what the plan is. Interesting beginning. Nice chapter.
Summary: Hermione and Ron have gotten closer since the end of their sixth year and finally reach the point of sharing their first kiss. But who said that first kisses are as wonderful as we all would hope? Can theirs survive awkwardness and feelings of inadequacy, or will they regress to the usual bickering and never make it to the second kiss? And if they do make it…
That was a nice way of bringing them together. Kudos to you for a good story!!
Summary: Ever wonder what the world of Harry Potter would be like as a soap opera? Me neither – until now, that is. Set in Harry’s 6th year, think of this as the parts of the Half Blood Prince that JKR didn’t want us to see. If you're into unconventional ships, this one's for you! Behold… As the Wizarding World Turns
Episode 9 is up!
*****Excerpt from a later chapter*****
"Haven’t you heard the rumors about her – one date Weasley.”
“One date what!?” Harry stared at Hermione dumfounded. He turned his head towards Ginny who once again started snogging Dean. Dean’s hands wandered to his girlfriend’s bum as she pulled the lower half of his body closer. “Hmm… makes sense,” he admitted.
“Anytime she brings up that sort of thing, I try to act like I have loads of experience too, but actually I have no idea what I’m talking about.”
“But what about you and Krum?” Harry asked, still visibly uncomfortable about their conversation.
“Oooh big deal. So we kissed a couple times. That means I must be a demon in the sack,” Hermione answered sarcastically. “Look, I was thinking…” Hermione started to blush. “I need to find someone I know to you know… practice with.”
That was a pretty funny start. Good chapter.
Summary: Regulus Black only lasted a week. (HBP spoilers, ahoy.)
Updated 22/01 with the revised, beta-read version. :)
That was so sad, but very, very good. You perfectly described Regalus, at least how I always imagined him. Brilliant story!!
Summary: Over ten years after Hogwarts, Harry, Ron, Hermione and Ginny find that they can't escape from all their problems just yet. Loosly based on Oscar Wilde's "An Ideal Husband". RHr HG
Well, that song is one of my favorites, so I just had to read this. Nice start. Looking forward to more. "Muggle" is capitalized. Other than that, great work.
Summary: Lily decides to invite James along to one of Slughorn's Christmas parties, immediately deciding it was a huge mistake. Everything seems to go wrong, especially when Lily is caught off guard by the thing she hates most: mistletoe.
Haha, that was sweet. Good story.
Summary: One mistake caused her years of abuse and neglect, until she finally finds something to hold on to. A promise, a soul, a “guilty pleasure”. But when she’s found out, will she receive the title Jezebel? Will anyone ever know what goes on behind closed doors? A story of pain, healing, and a forbidden love. Rated ‘R’.
Omg, as soon as I saw the name Draco Malfory, I was like, ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, poor Ginny! But it's a good story lol.
Summary: This was written for magicalmaddie331 of Hufflepuff House for the Valentine's Day Covert Cupid Poetry Exchange.
Harry wonders just how he can send a Valentine's Day greeting to Ginny without raising suspicion.
Haha this is so going on my favorites list....
Author's Response: It's all for you babe!
Summary: The Malfoys are entertaining, and it is time for little Draco to go to bed. He, of course, can think of better things to do than sleep.
Cute and funny. Great job! 10/10
