My name is Joy. I'm eighteen. I play the violin. My passion is writing. My love is laughter - family, friends, the feeling that everything is right in the world, and all you can do is sit there and smile. I'm a freshman in college. I was born in Illinois, spent my childhood in Kansas, and now I live in California. I am a pastors kid, a big sister, and a nerd. I love shopping, driving with friends with the music blasting, and sitting on the beach. Nothing makes me happier than when people review my stories. (Please oblige.) I want to be the next Jane Austen. She's my hero: her story, her books, her humor. I want a Mr. Darcy;) Read my stuff.
Holy crap . . . That's all I can think as I finish this story. This story. Will I ever read the harry potter books again? Can I possibly? Voldemort, a boy in love. Keedie Dante as a name was too perfect . . . I knew that riddle's girl could never just be a Rachel or samantha. Too ordinary . . . But still! You are an artist that has just warped my reality and all I can do is thank you for it.
Author's Response: Thnak you so much for reading and reviewing; so glad you liked it :)
I meant will I ever read the Harry potter books the SAME way again . . . Honestly, a terrible terrible mistake on my part!
Author's Response: :D xx
Second time through and just as chilled by the ending :)
Author's Response: Yay! Thanks x
This is an awesome story!! I really hope you update it again soon!
Author's Response: Thanks, I'll try my best.(:
Umm. . . I'm still waiting! I want this next chapter as much as I want the last HP movie. So please, help your devoted fan . . . finish the next chapter!! :D
Author's Response: I'm really sorry, these past few weeks have been super busy... Hopefully, I will be able to finish the next chapter soon :) Thanks for sticking with me!
It's been a month and i must say this lack of snowflakes is depressing me . . . There's a point where every mnff writer remembers that having their lives is way less important than updating for the sake of the health of their desperate readers . .
Author's Response: I'm so super sorry!!! Please don't be upset, though :( I was just working on it yesterday and the next chapter is almost done! Hold on just a little longer! It's nice that you care so much :D
AHHHH NEXT CHAPTERRRRR PLEAAAAASSEEE!!!
-your most often reviewer, Joy
Author's Response: Haha, your often reviews are much appreciated ;) Thanks for reading! Next chapter wont take as long!
I awaited eight days for this chapter . .. checking every day!! I need chapter eighteen! I NEED IT!! will there be more damsel in distress scenarios?
Author's Response: Oh my! You know, if you favorite the story, you can get email updates when the next chapter is up! Then you wont have to check back all the time! And don't worry, I'm currently working on chapter eighteen, so it should be up soonish! Thanks so much for reading and reviewing :) PS. I'm not sure about damsel in distress, but there are some action scenes coming up!
ZOMG you updated!! And I loved the chapter!!!! You captured Bellatix perfectly, and you provided a ton if juicy action :)
Author's Response: I know, I did update! It took long enough... :P I'm glad that you liked this chapter and Bellatrix! She's so fun to write :) Thanks so much for reading and reviewing!!
your cliffies are the bane of my existence, dream_team! work on a quick update!
Author's Response: Aw, I'm sorry! The next chapter is in the works, but it's going to be a long one, so it might take a couple weeks depending on how busy I am. Track just ended, so I will have some more time! Thanks so much for reading and reviewing :)
WOW!! I read this starting at like nine and I stayed up until one, almost as hooked as I was when I read the HP series for the first time. Building the romance that started it all is a job not many are ready to take on . . . and you're doing it great. You aren't JK Rowling, no one but she is, but you're you and your author abilities are brilliant. Hurry up with chapter 17 or I won't survive!! :D
Author's Response: Oh, Merlin, thank you! That really brightened my day! Sorry you wasted so much sleep, but I'm so glad that you like the story so much!! Thank you, thank you! The next chapter is being written now, so it should be up in about a week! Thanks, again, for leaving such a lovely review :]
I take a deep breath so my voice won’t shake.
“What would you do if we died tomorrow?”
He takes a step away from me, but still keeps me in his arms. “What?”
“What would you do if you knew that we died tomorrow?”
“What kind of question is that?”
“Don’t give me that, James. You know that we are going to die soon. There is no point in pretending that we aren’t.”
James and Lily have a conversation two days before Halloween.
The way you twisted my heart into pieces by Lily's declaration at the end is something I can never forgive you for, but that's your job, and you did wonderfully!
Author's Response: I'm happy to hear that you're not too angry! I am actually really glad that I effected you that way. That is the best thing that I could ever hear. Thank you so very much. :)
TOM RIDDLE ‚Ä“ THE SELF-STYLED LORD VOLDEMORT
Editors Note: At the request of the Ministry for Magic this Official Statement issued by the Office of the Minister is produced full and unedited.
OFFICIAL MINISTRY STATEMENT
This official statement has been compiled with the assistance and co-operation of Mr Harry Potter.
‚ÄúLord Voldemort‚ÄĚ was, in fact a man named Tom M. Riddle, son of a witch, Merope Gaunt and a Muggle, Tom Riddle Senior. The Ministry has decided that in all future official publications Riddle will be referred to by his given name.
There has already been much speculation and wild rumour regarding the events at Hogwarts School. The Ministry can confirm that Tom M. Riddle was killed at dawn on the morning of Saturday, 2 May. Riddle was disarmed by Harry Potter while in the act of firing a killing curse at Mr Potter. The curse killed Riddle rather than its intended target.
Continued on page 4
WHERE IS HARRY POTTER?
Despite the Official Ministry Statement (published above) we are no closer to receiving an answer to the question on the lips of every witch and wizard in the country. Where is Harry Potter?
It appears that Mr Potter left Hogwarts School early yesterday morning, apparently in the company of his close associates Hermione Granger and Ronald Weasley. An attractive young Ministry clerk, who did not wish to be named, told The Prophet ‚ÄúHe‚Äôs at the Ministry, having an important meeting with the Minister. My friends and I saw him. He asked us out to the pub, but we had to turn him down.‚ÄĚ This statement is at odds with a report from the Portkey Office that Mr Potter has fled the country, travelling to Australia with his companions.
Continued on page 2The days after the battle were days of grief and mourning. Grave Days.
your stories are so like Jk's that I have come to accept them as canon . . . but this out of all your stories is the one i like the best, and this is my favorite chapter. It had me sobbing the first time, and on the fifth I had a few strong tears. thanks for writing, never stop!
Thanks for the compliment :-)
As my only completed novel length story, and the first thing I finished, Iím still rather fond of Grave Days.-N-
Voldemort after death is rather hilarious. I loved that she scolded him, and that even though she was probably shocked and revolted at all he'd done, she loved him so much that all she did was tease him about bellatrix and being on the back if quirrel's head. :) that's love, and for someone like voldemort to experience such love that when she says his fake name he thinks it's evil, that's magical. Great finish to a story :)
Author's Response: Thank you!
Next chapter!! U have a hit here!!!
Author's Response: Thanks very much! I hope you keep reading, hopefully I can get another chapter up within the next few weeks! :)
Holy crap Tom is creepy . . . We already knew that but torturing small animals on valentines day? Yikesssss
U UPDATED!!! AAH IM SO HAPPY!! :):):):)
Author's Response: Thanks -N-
i know you said you're finishing "Tales of the Battle" first, and don't get me wrong I LOVE that story . .. but you left this one off at such a delicious point and i'm dying over need for the NEXT CHAPTER.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. I am suitably chastised and I will try to speed up the next chapter. :-) -N-
When are you going to update this!?!?
Author's Response: I was hoping that it would be this month. Unfortunately it‚Äôs now looking like it will be January, sorry. -N-
Author's Response: When Iíve finished Tales! Honest! -N-
