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: This important question needs to be answered. Reputations are at stake.
Assuming we're the jurors, I must admit that this is a difficult case. If one goes by the literal meaning, then the verdict is obvious. I see Ron as having given a personal opinion, however, and Draco should Have been reminded of all the libel printed via Rita Skeeter thanks to him.
Perhaps we should just call for a mistrial?
Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
If Ron is guilty, damage to Mr Malfoy must be appropriate to the “hurt” so damages of one Knut would seem appropriate. :) I never considered bringing Rita into this. That was an opportunity I missed. :(
Summary: Before he became the Dark Lord, he had been student like any other.
Before it was a sin, it had been a house like any other.
Before it all had ripped her to pieces, she had been a girl like any other.
People change. Sometimes for the worse.
This is the story of Hogwarts when Tom Riddle was there, and how the lure of the Dark Arts led him, and the people he dragged in his wake, to madness.
A good start that was well written.
Author's Response: Thanks! And thanks for reading :)
Summary: Snape and Celie are awaiting the birth of their children in the third sequel to The Accidental Godmother, but all is not what it seems in the tiny village of Honeysuckle, England.
Wow, can't believe you went there. Absolutely hilarious, though.
Author's Response: I'm really glad that you enjoyed the chapter. Thanks for sending me a review! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Poor Celie. Love the way you had Snape decide the names for the girls, and that he started teaching Ashely about poitions.
Author's Response: Thank you for continuing to read the story! :) I'm happy to hear that you enjoyed the chapter. I thought that it was so very Snape-ish for him to talk with Ashley about brewing potions. I hope that you like the next chapter! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Creative bringing in Dr. Millbrae. Did he stich up Arthur by chance? :p
Can't help but wonder if PPD is contributing to Celie being so hard on herself. Glad Snape is up to the task, as both father and caring husband.
Author's Response: Thank you for sending me another review! I enjoy hearing your thoughts about the chapters! :) To answer your question, Dr. Millbrae didn't stitch Arthur up in OOTP because Arthur is a wizard and magical medicine would work best on a wizard. (Dr. Millbrae was only brought into the story because Celie is a Muggle.) Like you, I'm also glad that Snape is up to the task of taking care of his family. :) Hope you like the next chapter! Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Summary: When Lily asks James to teach her how to play Quidditch, James comes up with an interesting analogy...
I agree with the other reviewers. I w just waiting for James to reveal that Lily was the Snitch. Maybe that's how this James proposes :p
Author's Response: Aha, great insight! I'm glad you enjoyed the story - thanks for reviewing :)
Summary: The fourth sequel to The Accidental Godmother showcases a variety of moments in the lives of the recently expanded Snape family.
Glad to see that not only have the adventures continued, but Snape is doing his best to be a great father.
Author's Response: Yes, the adventures of Snape and Co. have definitely continued. (There's no way that I could give them up with so many stories still floating around in my head!) Thanks for the review and I hope that you enjoy the next chapter! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
Oh, I wish I had a picture of Snape in bows to adorn my wall.
Author's Response: Me, too! Thank you for the review! :) Smiles, Ruby Emeralds
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!
