I was an idiot who avoided the hype of HP until the first movie came out. It wasn't until I read Goblet of Fire in preparation for the 4th movie, however, that I finally understood what made HP so great. Since then I've read every book numerous times, and hold the 5th movie and 7th novel dear as I had just learned I was pregnant when they were released. My daughter's middle name is Rose, and she is truly magical.
I've been busy writing several more fanfictions - I can't stop. Hopefully I'll be able to get them posted before the year's out. Here's a sneak peak of what I've been working on:
'Harry Potter and the Red Snitch'
Starts the day after the Battle of Hogwarts and follows Harry and Ginny over the next few years.
Completed except for some tweaking in the middle (anyone interested in helping?) Having trouble posting this story, however :(
Exactly as it sounds - the 'conversations' Ginny Weasley and Tom Riddle had during her first year at Hogwarts (the Wizarding version of IMing).
This story is more challenging than I expected, so it might be awhile before it's finished.
What began as a song parody of 'What Was I Thinking?' has turned into book seven from Draco's POV.
I've written about ten chapters so far. Parts are easy while others are more difficult, so hopefully it won't be too bad.
'Harry and Ginevra'
Another song parody based on 'Jack and Diane' that needs a lot of work. What makes it worse is trying to decide if it should be a pre- or post-war song.
'Show Your Face'
Just wrote this poem today about a well known object from the series.
Enjoy reading but not writing? I'm open to more ideas :)
Summary: The story of Ron and Hermione through a series of missing moments. Who said love was simple?
You actually had me feeling Hermione and her mom's sadness and pain. Well done.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! I'm glad you think so :)
Summary: Hermione knew she had to try harder, either to heal faster or hide her failing more effectively. She did not understand why the PsychoSocial Healing sessions hadn't worked for her as they had for Harry and Ron. She did not understand why she was still lost, still low, still struggling to breathe, and talk, and see, and live.
I agree with Chelle - I could feel Hermione's pain. The way you wrote about her looking into Draco's eyes and seeing Bellatrix's made me wonder if there was more to how Hermione felt when impersonating her. I can't wait to read more!
Author's Response: Oooh, that's a route I didn't explore, but an interesting connection! Thank you so much for giving the fic a try and leaving a review!
