So, as you can see, I haven't written an awful lot of fanfiction. I started two separate stories, they both ended up being approximately 50 pages long, but upon closer inspection, I decided that they were total crap :) So, instead, I decided to try a few short stories:
The Seizing of the Toad (WIP)
The Greatest Act of Love (WIP)
Blue Wig (WIP)
The Return (COMLETED)
This is somewhat unrelated, but could somebody that reviews my story please tell me how to get sorted? I tried getting sorted, but when I entered my user name and password, the system rejected it.
My wand is Redwood with a Veela Hair core and it is 14 inches long. Though according to the Celtic birth charts, I have and Elder wand *Insert evil laugh here* :}
The locals in a sleepy corner of the Cheviot Hills are surprised to discover that they have new neighbours.
Who are the strangers at Drakeshaugh?

I'm writing this with a big grin plastered on my face because of Annie's antics! I only noticed one typo in this story: you forgot to capitalize Ginny's name in one spot. I'm typing this up on my Dad's cell phone, so I can't cntrl-C and cntrl-V for you, sorry :(
I am still trying to decipher the anagram (?) on Harry's helmet. You hinted that it had something to do with Ginny sand that has helped enormously! Thank you!
I finally got my mom to break down and listen to the Harry Porter audiobooks. She is HOOKED! In the span of a week and a half she has listened to SS, CoS, PoA, and GoF. She has just reached Harry's trial in OotP, she is about to meet Um-bitch *AHEM* excuse me Umbridge ;-)
I am eagerly awaiting your next update!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I made one minor change after the final beta-read, and I added a typo! Typical!
Harryís t-shirt Ė it isnít an anagram. If I say ?ARPIE? is that a big enough clue? -N-
As a faithful reader, I am quite pleased with your work. Thank you for updating regularly and keeping your stories as "real" and in character as possible.
Keep 'em coming!
Thanks for the review.
The Potters as they appear from a Muggle perspective = fun!
All I have to say is awwwww :) Well, other than that, I do think you're right, Harry and the rest of the Potter clan are VERY interesting and fun from a muggle point of view. I'll have to remember that...
I actually have something that I wanted to ask you: have you ever read a story on this site and then go back and it's gone? I was really enjoying this story "The Greatest Power" by MuggleMomma, I wrote reviews, added it to my favorites section, etc. I went back yesterday to see if chapter four had been posted, and the story had vanished. I used the site searcher and couldn't find it, it was GONE from my favorites section as were my reviews, and evey trace of it is gone! POOF! I e-mailed the site administrator, but haven't heard back yet. I really liked the story...
As always, keep up the good work, thank you for answering my reviews, and HAVE FUN writing!
Thanks for the review. This is a lot of fun to write (though also hard work). I love throwing in stuff which (I hope) readers will spot, but Jacqui doesnít. Harryís bike, is of course, Siriusí and the t-shirt heís wearing (--RPI--) is, of course...
Iíll be honest, I read very little fanfic. Iím sure that the mods will help. I know (from experience) that when youíre banned from HPFF all your stories are deleted and you become an unperson. Iím certain that this site is much more mature. But any author could pull their stories. I could delete all of mine.
Summary: Ron is on his way to ask Hermione a question. He thinks that Hermione knows everything, but will she be able to answer this question?
You know, I was never really a big fan of Ron/Hermione fics until I "discovered" your fics-now I can't get enough of them!
I don't know if you remember my question about "The Missing Fanfic" but, I found it! I may be intelligent, but, unfortunately, I still am blonde. I did not even THINK about google-ing it! It turns out MuggleMomma has quite the following; she's posted the same story on about seven other sites. So, as you can imagine, I'm ecstatic!
Once again, thank you for responding promptly, updating regularly, and have fun!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I write more Harry/Ginny than Ron/Hermione, but sometimes an idea arrives almost fully formed (this one did). Next updates (in the queue already) - M.I.T.:Muggle Interface Team and E.C.C.E.N.T.R.I.C., then "Tales", and "Strangers", and "A&S" at last. -N-
Summary: E.C.C.E.N.T.R.I.C. is the second of four loosely connected stories I think of as the “Potter Family” series. In order, the stories are: It Takes Two, ECCENTRIC, First Sight and Sleepless Night.
Ginny takes a trip to Tibet with an eccentric companion.
E.C.C.E.N.T.R.I.C. *laughs uncontrollably* I LOVE it! I love that you included Luna, most people just forget about her.
Okay I am feeling thicker than a concussed troll right now. I have been trying to figure out what RPI stands for (it's from Stangers at Drakeshaugh). If it's British term, I'm lost. If it's not, my encyclopedic brain has failed me. Could you please elaborate? I can just hear the dumb blonde jokes coming now...
As always, thank you for updating in a timely manner and updating regularly!
Thanks for the review. I went through an acronym phase a couple of months back and with a title like that I had to include Luna.
Iíll give you more hints. The t-shirt was green (thatís not only a Slytherin colour). It has something to do with Ginny. Jacqui could not see the whole word. The word you want is ??RPI?? ;-)-N-
When the magical world meets the Muggle world, who do the Auror Office call on?
Nominated for: Best Post-Hogwarts (One-Shot) story – Quicksilver Quills 2011
Poor Lavender! I admit, for Ron, she was a bit of a lapse of judgement, but all the same, no one deserves to live like her! Poor Lavender!
Thanks for the review.
Lavender may have been a lapse of judgement for Ron, but I think her feelings were genuine. They were not suited, and (astonishingly) Ron realised first. Lavender (eventually) gets her happy ending (thatís why I wrote Moon not long after Iíd written Bare).-N-
Summary: At ten years old, Lily and Severus are already best friends. One day Lily goes over to his house to play and hears his dad drunk. She decides to confront him about it.
You show an amazing knack for both Sevvie and Lola, they're both what I would imagine a younger version of their older selves to be like! I am looking forward to reading more of your stories!
P.S.: are you by any chance on phoenixsong.net?
July 2010 and a young married couple are out for a relaxing and romantic day. An afternoon at the theatre, followed by a meal to bring back memories. It should be a fairytale day. Unfortunately, it is.
This is a sequel to Moon and is another story featuring Mark Moon (Best Original Character - Quicksilver Quills 2010). A lady named Lavender appears too.
I've been waiting for this! I didn't yeas to care for Lavender so much, but you have really changed my mind! I am ready for a story with almost teeth-rotting fluff; I'm exited to see where this goes. I got into a, um, disagreement with a fellow Potter freak about Lav marrying Seamus (love that accent!), but I think she and Mark are more suited for eachother. *Shrug* If Fiona (said fellow freak) turns up her nose at fanfiction, that's her perogative. Anyway, I digress, now what was I going for? I don't remember, so, as usual, keep up the good work, thank you for responding, and have fun!
Author's Response: Rebekah
Thanks for the review. My thoughts: Lavender in HBP was a sixteen-year-old with a crush, by DH she was (possibly Ė because of her bathroom remark) the first girl in hiding in the room of requirement. Seamus took Lavender to the Yule Ball, he certainly fancied her when they were both 14/15, but, in my opinion there are enough canon relationships between DA members, so I promised myself, no more than the ones JKR confirms.
If youíre expecting teeth-rotting fluff, you may be in for a surprise. This is a fairy story!
Summary: Ginny Weasley is about to play her first ever professional Quidditch Game. Why aren't her team mates ready?
Ah, rituals and superstitions, how the human race thrives on them! I was always curious about Ginny's teammates. Well, you have certainly given them a decent amount of character. ;-) I've been long awaiting another update from you. Congratulations, you have just given me my long awaited fic-fix!
Keep up the good work!
I will need Ginnyís team mates for my other stories, and this, I hope, establishes them. I decided on Ginnyís ritual when I started writing A&S, as a nod to Grave Days.
This story has been in the queue for a long time for some reason. More from me soon (I hope) i have two chapters in the queue and more ready.-N-
