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.

Remembering Lily by Gmariam
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 39]

Summary: Past Featured StoryA lonely figure walks down the street, long auburn hair trailing behind her in the blustery wind. She pulls a red wool coat snug around her, gloved hands tucked into pockets as she wanders the sidewalk, glancing up at the shop fronts. She is young, but her face is lined with sadness, as if searching for something she has lost. Her green eyes long for answers.

Across the way a young man stops and stares at the woman in the red coat, hardly daring to believe it might be her. And yet as she turns and walks back up the street, he knows it is, and his heart stops beating for a moment. He blinks, just to see if she will disappear from his life once more, like she did over a year ago.

She doesn't.

Moons by Northumbrian
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 32]

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 love Lavender's character - and I like how you retained who she was in some of your previous stories as the flighty single member of the DA in her character as a married woman and mother. Enjoying it!

Author's Response: Thank you.
I try to keep everyone in character as they mature. I like Lavender, she's brave, and good in a crisis, but she still annoys me. -N-

Unspeakable by C_A_Campbell, Northumbrian
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 30]

Summary: Unspeakable, Michael Corner, is researching time, events, and probabilities. While testing his newly-invented RANDOM system, he stumbles upon an unspeakable possibility. Former supporters of Voldemort, all acquitted for their crimes, are dying of so-called natural causes. Intrigued by the possibility that these events might be connected, Michael investigates farther. But what he discovers will test him and raise questions that all his probabilities cannot answer for him.

What is justice? And what is unspeakable cruelty?

This is C_A_Campbell/thegirllikeme and Northumbrian of Ravenclaw writing for the 2011 Mysterious May Challenge in the Great Hall, Prompt 4.

wait, is it still from michael corner's POV? so confused . . . and did corner kill anyone, or is it alternating between him and the murderer?

Author's Response: No, it's from the killer's POV. If you look at the top of each chapter, right below that chapter title, you will see the name of whose character's POV the chapter is in. Sorry for the confusion.

He returned with a quiet sadness and a surprising new responsibility to keep him focused. She returned with a misplaced bitterness and the matching position that forced them to work with one another. Yet fear, resentment, and stubborn arrogance kept pushing them apart, even when they were meant to be together.

Author's Response: Thank you so much. It's my first completed Harry Potter themed poem, but not the first poem I've written.

A few of them were even published by National Library of Poetry and I won an editors choice award for one of them.

Awesome story you have going!! One thing - in Snape's opening speech, he says to everyone that the Dark Lord is in charge. He wouldn't have said that. It says in the seventh book that Voldemort kept it a "secret" that he was in charge, rather than proclaiming himself Minister of Magic, so that he could blame Harry for Dumbledore's death, and cause fear and suspicion rather than outright opposition. Just a little error ;), but I thought you might want to know. Update soon I'm really enjoying this tale!!

Spellbound by ravenclaw1997
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 11]


Ginny Weasley is extremely excited for her first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and knows that it will be wonderful. She has all of her supplies, her books, and most importantly, a wand.

But is she ready for the twist Tom Riddle will send her way?

This story is an alternate Chamber of Secrets from Ginny's point-of-view, with some very interesting changes that could affect her whole life.
