*shifty glance* Don't tell the lawyers I was here.
Summary: Harry muses about what kind of person he'd be if he wasn't the Boy-Who-Lived. Hermione and Luna think he wouldn't be any different. Harry wants to change the world. Hermione and Luna show him how.
I thought that was a well written story with a good moral. You definitely have a good sense of description, and I am a bit of a hard reviewer, so take it as a compliment! I thought Harry sounded a tad Hermione-ish at times, but it was hardly enough to matter. Nice work!
Summary: There have always been arguments over which piece of the board is the most powerful. Most will say the Queen; she can mimic any move, take any square. Others will say the King; despite his limited mobility, the entire point is to protect your king and capture your opponents. It is the center piece of the game. There are any number of arguments for five of the pieces. The last piece, or pieces, are often neglected. They are the front line, the first defence, and the first to fall. All but one. And Ron must see it to the other side.
Yeah... I finally figured this out... *blush* I loved the concept of this story; very interesting! I wish I had super-human powers like Emerson, being able to tell a great story even though I haven't read it... You did a nice job with this. Nice comparisons between chess and life. Keep up the good work!
wait- I just remembered something... Isn't it checkers where if a piece makes it to the other side it gets kinged?
Author's Response: Yeah... that wasn't the type of King I was talking about....
As I said on im- HAHAHAHAHHAHAHA. This has got to be one of the funniest parodies of a sex fic I have ever read. There's a bit of spelling you might want to take care of though. Keep up the good work, this is hilarious!
Summary: There is darkness that envelopes the world. It shrouds us and keeps us from ever seeing even what's in front of our noses. But for every Hitler, Grindelwald, Attila the Hun and Voldemort, Fate gives us a person to light a candle to shatter the darkness. Hermione Granger knows a hero when she sees one. Sometimes, you just have to look a little deeper.
First off, I have to say that I loved the various references you used throughout the story. I was most familiar with Schindler. You think of things in an abstract way. I've never seen a fic that showed Mundungus as anything more than a bum. You have a striking sense of creativity. I strongly urge you to continue writing.
Summary: Ask anyone and they’ll tell you there’s something exquisite in the air around Christmas Eve. But what? Witness the magic of Christmas twirl two unsuspecting 7th years into each others arms… as Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger find out exactly what ‘Christmas Magic’ is all about.
Awww, Georgia I love it! As another reviewer said, finding good Ron/Hermione stories is hard. You've done a good job with this! I love Ron and Hermione as a pairing, and you put them together so well! Ron was blibbering and Hermione was being maddeningly obvious, the way it should be! I'll have no more of this Ron telling Hermione of his love in great sonnets. R/Hr authors should have to read this story so they can get it right!
Summary: Who really writes the Sorting Songs? A literary history of magical song-writing with not one but two authentic examples from recent decades. They rhyme and they scan.
I just wanted to let you know that I'm the one who validated your story, and I absolutely loved it! That has got to be one of the best humor fics we've gotten! Nice job!
Author's Response: Thank-you! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Anyone game to do Lee Jordon's 'rap' version?
I'm sorry that for some reason you believe that my political beliefs are going to affect the way your story is validated or rejected. However, you are entitled to your own opinion, as am I. I got your e-mail through your account, so if you're implying that I did a hunt for it, I did no such thing. I'm glad you are open minded enough to the other mods, despite not knowing their stance on this country. But then, I'm not entirely sure that political views are the whole reason for some of your discriminitory comments.
Author's Response: My political beliefs practically affect everything in my life. I'm sorry, I do like President Bush and his family, they are great! Like I say, everyone has their own opinion, and they are entitled to that opinion. But like I also say, there is a reason God let President Bush be elected president in the first place. God has a plan for everyone and his plan for Mister Bush was for him to be elected president and make us a better country. That's all I'm saying. I have no problem with you, and I respect that you know politics, I know politics too (believe me!). Discriminitory comments. Can we please put that behind us? I only made one comment. Then that day in school I learned about the Nazis and Prince Harry wore that costume, believe me I feel horrible. I am very sorry for my actions, they were stupid and I was just caught up in the moment. Sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry, SORRY!!!! There. Is that better, now I will be angry if you bring it up again. Okay? Listen, you can mod my story if you're that upset about it. Yes, I have strong political views for my young age. Sorry, but I was kind of born into it. Can't help it, just there. Okay, now that that's behind us...let's just forget the whole thing ever happened. Whoosh, it's wiped out of my mind. Discriminitory comments....what comments? Oh, and why do you use such big words? I might have to get out the dictonary one of these days.....
I understand your situation and sympathize. However, I don't see why you can't create a yahoo or msn e-mail account. If you don't provide the information for where you live, no one will get it. You don't even need to sign up with your real name. Even mugglenet allows users to create mugglenet.com e-mail accounts.
I can't help but think that you're being purposely difficult. If it's okay for you to register and post fan fiction here, what is the problem with registering at the beta forums, or registering an untraceable e-mail account? Communicating with us via forum, e-mail, or PM (private message- beta forums) is no different than communicating in the reviews section of your story.
You have the capability to correct your stories. We are NOT going to do it for you, or let it pass through. Having restricted communications online is not going to prohibit you from looking at your rejection letters and trying to fix the errors.
We will continue to reject your story until you make the necessary changes.
Author's Response: You don't see why? It's against my parents rules! I'm not going to go against the rules just to get my story accepted. Call me Miss Perfect, but I just don't do that. I am not being purposly difficult. I hate it when I'm difficult because then people tend to dislike me. Yes, it's okay that I post ff here, because my parents know I am not giving away any information that I shouldn't be. I've got an account on the beta forums...I think. I'm not asking for special treatment, like I said before, that is not what I wish for. I do not ignore my rejection emails, I wait for them. I am trying to make the necessary changes but it doesn't help that I don't always get an email. Do you want the real reson I can't email? I'll give it to you: This isn't my own email address. It's my moms. So, therefore I don't email with anyone because most of the time she gets the email before me, and she reads it. I don't want her to take something the wrong way and think I'm doing something like being rude on a website, which I don't think I am. I just....fine, are you tired of hearing from me? Then you won't have to hear from me anymore. I'm not going to even try to post anymore of my chapters. I'm not even going to worry about it. I'm just going to sit here, with many unfinished stories and that's fine because I'll write the finished story, but won't post it. Thank you very much for allowing me to express myself and become a better writer but apparently I still suck.
Wow. I'm not quite sure what to say apart from the fact that this is going in my favorites. Nice work!
Author's Response: Oooh! Another person adding me to their favourites list! *Does happy dance on behalf of Nicodemus* Thank you!
Summary: Draco Malfoy has just finished his first year at Hogwarts. He must return home to face his father's anger at Slytherin losing the House Cup to Harry Potter. Draco also manages to get himself into a load of trouble when his family stops at a friend's house, and tries to keep a secret from his father about it. Naturally, he fails. ;)
I just wanted to say that I was extremely impressed by your story when I read it in the queue. You have a great writing style, and the foreshadowing I'm seeing is superb. This is going under my favorites.
Author's Response: thank you! you give me hope! i will be putting up the last half of the story very soon, if you'd like to finish it. ;)
Summary: Dumbledore- much to the dismay of several students- has decided to throw a Hallowe'en Masquerade Ball. The Trio, along with a few friends, are horrified at the prospect, and immediately resolve to do everything in their power to get out of going. Along the way, they make new friends, form strange alliances, and even find love. A tongue-in-cheek look at various fallacies within the fandom. Blaise/Hermione, Neville/Padma, Harry/Millicent, and a lot of UST between Ron and Draco. Some OOCness involved (what did you expect? It's a humour fic.)
LOL! Why can't we get more humor fics like this in the queue? This, my dear Seren, is brilliance. I love the whole concept of the fangirls circling like hawks, made me laugh out loud! Good thing mom didn't hear me, I decided to take a teensy break from Geometry... ;) Anyway, I'm very much looking forward to the next installment, and will be adding this to my favorites!
Lovely work! I enjoyed reading it, and it came out extremely well! Coming from one mod to another, that's saying something, considering some of the... graphic... suicide fics we get in the queue. Nice work! Love, teh Hurl
Author's Response: Gracias, Hurl. Down with the slashing of wrists in the bathtub! Get creative! How not why! [/preaching]
Author's Response: Why not how, I mean... I just get so excited that the words come out in the wrong order... *cough*
