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!
Sa-weet chapter. Good job, although the ending was slighlty confusing...
Haha, lightly funny and quite amusing. Another wonderful one-shot! Great job!
Hmmm, interesting idea....can't wait to see how it goes!!
Ack, this once is just as good as the last chapter. ::Sigh:: I love Harry/Ginny. Great job!
Author's Response: Thank you, again!
Eek, such trickery! I, among others, I presume, was expecting Voldemort. Ah, well, nice chapter anyway. Snape is certainly interesting. Nice job.
Author's Response: That was my goal, evil author that I am. And Snape is just as bad as Volde on levels, as you\'ll find out...
I like how you switch between their points of view. Very well done. Poor percy. Anyway, kudos to you :]
Author's Response: I enjoy the switching. It\'s a pain to write but quite effective with the telling of the story =)
Nice chapter, although in the beginning, technically the correct word is "Disapparate" since he is leaving. Otherwise, great job!
Author's Response: Yea, I\'ve always been a bit dubious as to the Disapparate and Apparate debate. Technically the guy departing was doing the act of Apparation, so Disapparate would therefore apply the same was as Apparate depending on the perspective of action...
Oooh, cliffhanger. Amazing chapter. Nice work.
Author's Response: Thanks!
Argh! My nails are too short because I've already bit them to pieces. Ew. But yeah. This chapter is made of win and awesome. A great Ron/Hermione moment. Good job.
Author's Response: Save some of those nails for later!
Eek! Harry talks like a really smart adult, not a seventeen-year-old guy. Great chapter. Nice cliffhanger, too.
Author's Response: Yea, I went back and reread and Harry does sound a bit mature at times... but honestly I think after Dumbledore dies he skips the remaining teenage years and is completely an adult (and I talked that way when I was 17, so it doesnt seem like that big a stretch to me!) ;)
Eekles, everything is falling into place. Possibly my favorite chapter in this story yet. Brilliant job.
Author's Response: Thank you
This is the saddest story I've ever read, and yet one of the most brilliant. I was crying, because it was so sorrowful and so meaningful. I loved it. Words can't even explain what this story did to me. I do have one concern though: Tom is an interesting name for Harry's son. Just a thought. Anyway, most amazing story ever. I love all your stories, most of them are on my favorite's list, and you're on my favorite authors list as well. Beautiful story. ♥♥♥♥
Author's Response: Thank you so much. Tom\'s name really the insight from that comes from Epilogues 1 in which Harry comes to terms with Voldemort, and everything that turned Tom Riddle into the most feared wizard of his age. With those who like my stories, there\'s a lot of discussion as to why I named him Tom. The short answer is I consciously did it because it was kind of a way of honoring the boy Tom Riddle, the one who could have grown up to do great things had he not had the hand dealt against him that he did. But there are lots of other factors in there. For the most detailed explanation, I would recommend you checking out my LiveJournal, which you can get to from my author\'s page. You\'ll have to go to the beginning of it though as it\'s an old entry, and there\'s been a lot of chicanary since then.
Aw gee, what a chapter!! Again, at the end of this story, like the other one, there was more rent songs!! I kept singing "Without You" from Rent while I read the scene between Harry and Ginny. It was sooooo good.Like, really, really, really good. This is a totally awesome series. Kudos to you!!!
Author's Response: Thank you... Damn, I need to remember to ask my girlfriend about Rent because after all the references to it from you, I need to hear this soundtrack. Well, it\'s been a pleasure reading all of your reviews, and not only do I hope you\'ll stay with me through Part II, but I\'m hoping I\'ll finish it for you... Also, I\'m very sorry it took so long to respond to this review.
Poor Harry. ::tear:: Good chapter.
Author's Response: Aw, thank you, I hope that you continue to enjoy the story.
Yay, treacle tart!! lol. Once again, poor Harry. But good chapter.
Author's Response: haha treacle tart, okay that was a bit of deus ex machina, but then there\'s plenty of it here. Thanks for the review.
That was just so romantic. It was absolutely brilliant, and a very, very, very good chapter. I ♥ it!!! =]
Author's Response: Thank you very much, I had a really hard time writing those vows, took me a long time, but in the end I guess everything worked out. Thank you so much.
Ahh, cliffhanger!! Maddie's my name too, obviously lol. Nice chapter.
Author's Response: Thank you. While the cliffie at the end of Part II is pretty lame, I\'m pretty proud of this one. Thank you.
The ending part was really good. Good chapter.
Author's Response: Thank you very much. Yeah, the ending to this one was very cathartic, I think. I just thought this was a pretty cool little idea, the whole talking to dead people thing.
Haha, that was really good, especially about the part with "Gin." I've never really liked it when people called her that, and I found her thought on the name in this story very funny. Especially when she compared it to Margarita, although Margarita is slightly better because it also means "flower." I doubt Gin means something nice, like a flower. Anyway, great story!!
Hmm. A twist already. Fantastic story. Great job!
Author's Response: Why, thank you! I do my best to keep things interesting. :-)
