Bio:
Emmy Chahal for CBC, Canada. - I was just wondering what the most valuable piece of advise you would give to an aspiring writer?

JK Rowling: Read as much as you can, I think that there is nothing as important, because that will really show you what makes good writing in your opinion, obviously it's very subjective. You will probably go through a phrase when you imitate your favourite writers and I think that is necessary and a good learning process.

After that, you just have to accept it takes a phenomenal amount of perseverence and the people who deserve to make it ... you probably will not like 90 per cent of what you write, one day you write a single page you like and build on that.


Hi, I'm a young writer here.

Those are J.K. Rowling's own words, everyone. For me, it may be a bit dificult to follow them, as excited as I was to find out that my absolute favorite writer of all time gave me adivce.

1) Read as much as you can. Check.

2) Go through a phase imitating your favorite writers. If fanfiction counts, then, infinite checks.

3) Perservere...... well, I don't think I'd live if I tried not to write. =)

4) You won't like 90% of your writing, so write a page you like and go from there. Haha, so true. That's why reviews matter! ;) They give you self confidence.


I really love the Harry Potter seiries, but I love Mugglenet's Fanfiction even more.

I have way too many favorite characters, but I especially love Lily Evans and Lily Potter. (And Neville, who goes without saying).

The only ships I don't support is Hermione/Draco, or Ginny/Draco. I personally think Draco would be better off living alone and childless. I know that sounds.... a bit.... mean, but Draco, I think, is generally a bad person, despite his reasons for acting bad.

About Snape: I recently went to Potted Potter a parody by Dan and Jeff, and they asked the crowd if Snape was good or bad. I embarrased myself by shouting 'Bad'.

However, I wholeheartedly agree that Snape was a very mean person. He was terrible to Harry, and pretty much everyone else, no matter how torn up inside he was. Snape's personally one of my favorite characters (if you didn't guess from 'Almost') and I have nothing against him. I just don't think he's 'good'.

I hope you like my stories.

Wow. Haven't been on here in a long time. ;) If anyone's interested in what I've been up to these days, I suggest you look up the author

Astrid Goes For A Spin

on Fanfiction.net. Don't worry, I haven't done any Harry Potter on there, unless you count my true work of art, my crossover. Now, no more spoilers!

Read on, and please, review!

Also, about reveiws - some of them I've forgotten to thank the reveiwer, but I really love getting reveiws, so to anyone I've forgotten, thanks for reveiwing!

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.

Whoa. Heavy. Impressive, though. I do wish Lily would smack James around a bit, though. It's my favorite part of her character!

Author's Response: Another belated thank-you! Haha, I like that bit of her too. It's fun to be able to write stories that explore all sorts of situation for these two. She does smack him in my latest, if you are interested (it's long, though) Thanks again! ~Gina :)

Skydive by wauwabee
Rated: 6th-7th Years [Reviews - 58]

Summary: "I don't wanna parachute into love,
No, I wanna skydive
And fall until we fly, live until we die together,
If heaven is my home, you could only make it better."


-Skydive, Jason Reeves


Seventh Year at Hogwarts is about much more than memorizing all the lessons for the upcoming N.E.W.Ts. It's about falling in love with someone you least expected to, about realizing who you are and what you want to do. It's about friendship, laughter, and the first steps towards a great betrayal. You strengthen the bonds already made and reconnect with someone you've had a fallout with.
Everyday Voldemort gets stronger, and the outside world becomes more real and more frightening. Lily, Marlene and the Marauders learn what it means to fall in love, what true friendship is, how to let go, and what is most important in life. Because not growing up is not an option. And some things are worth fighting for.

You're a really good writer, I like this story a lot, I think that you captured most of the characters pretty well, only I think Lily's a little more spunky and would never go out with someone as boring as barbie boy. =)

Author's Response: Hahahaha I'm glad you like it! Spencer has some spunk to him, he has to have a bit as he is the Ravenclaw Quidditch captain, but he did change over the coarse of his relationship with Lily. You will find out why er...at a later date. Cheers : )

I liked the gist of it, but I think it would be really good if it were a one-shot, about how someone felt about it. I liked the poem, and I feel really bad for critizing it, but I think that it could be MAGICAL if you made it, like, a one shot from Ginny's POV or something.

Beautiful. Absolutely Beautiful. I loved it. It was the best poem I've ever read, my favorite, because it's not ryming.

Author's Response: Oh, my gosh, you simply must know that this means the world to me, it really does. I really like non-rhyming poems- hopefully I'll find time to type more of my writings and drabbles and submit them soon. Thank you SO MUCH for reading and reviewing; I can't even put into words how grateful I am. Cheers!

 

Forces of Nature by Equinox Chick

Summary: In the midst of battle, and after that kiss, Ron knew he loved Hermione. He'd never said the words, but she knew.

Didn't she?

This story was inspired by a song called Forces of Nature by the Backstreet Boys. This pairing and that group are the favourites of Amanda (ahattab) who is celebrating her birthday today.

Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling and have never even seen a backstreet boy.

Thank You so much for writing it. It really brightened my day.

Author's Response: Thank you very much. Yeah, I feel sorry for Ron and think he gets a bad deal in fanfiction. Glad I brightened your day. ~Carole~

Very very good, I enjoyed it very much - except for Dumbledore's stupidity. I know that's how he really was, I just hated him for it. Doesn't Dumbledore understand that other Muggles are doing that to the innocent ones?? =)

Author's Response: That is the problem - he sees it only as a muggle problem. He does want to help them but he's so besotted with Grindelwald that he's convinced himself that Muggles are these weak creatures that desperately need wizarding control before they all kill each other. It's not quite stupidity, more convenient ignorance so that he can continue to delude himself that Grindelwald is great. Deep down he knows it's wrong. Thank you for reading and reviewing!

 
Reviewer: Snowlily Signed
Date: 06/12/11 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1, The Zimmermaanns.

Very well written, I enjoyed it very much. I just have one question: if she was expelled from Durmstrang under Grindlewald, for being a Muggleborn Jew, why wasn't she killed? It seems too perfect a combination to pass up murdering, if I were thinking of Grindlewald.

Author's Response: Grindelwald doesn't actually wish to kill Jews, per say. He is simply against Muggles and Muggleborns, but exploiting prejudices and the Muggle war. As Hitler banned Jews from non-Jewish schools, Grindelwald extended this to Durmstrang, as the only Jews there were Muggleborns (conventional magical talent is rare in the Jewish community; thus the perfect place for Grindelwald to start). Sofia doesn't know this, and all will be revealed in a later chapter, but essentially Grindelwald doesn't particularly want to be seen as spilling magical blood as it's all part of a scheme for 'the greater good'. Witches and Wizards across Europe don't know/realise the extent of Grindelwald's influence, it's guess work for the vast majority - including, crucially, Sofia herself. Thank you very much for your review, I'm happy to answer any further questions :)

I spent the whole first half of the fic trying to think who Brian was, then I figured it out the second before I read about the Leaky Cauldron. I was so happy I was right, but I scanned the whole rest of the fic to see if I really was. You can't imagine how much suspense you put in the story by not telling us who the love interest was!

Author's Response: Yay, I'm glad I built a little suspense! And I'm glad you figured it out, hope you enjoyed it! A very belated thank you for the review, I appreciate it! ~Gina :)

 

Summary:

Hufflepuff Albus Potter was a firm believer that it was a fact of nature and a rite of passage to torment one's sibling. And who better than his nerdy, Ravenclaw little sister? Her messy hair and stupid pile of books... she so had it coming.

But Lily had other ideas.

I loved it soo much! I'm the only person who ever put Lily as a Ravenclaw...it was refreshing to see her like that. Normally she's a sort of stupid Gryffindor. I think you did a really good job, about how she was smarter than Albus, how she tricked them into thinking they pranked her. I especially liked how she was a prefect and she still did all this stuff. But I especially liked how even when she was pranking Albus, she wouldn't stoop as low as he tried to.
Really good job, I'm putting this as a favorite!

Author's Response:

Lily is a very versatile character in the Potterverse, in that she has the possibility to be so many things. We don't see much of who she really is in the epilogue, so she could be anyone. It's almost a shame that she isn't put to better use. But being the cracking younger sister to the smartass-come-dumbass older brother is a fun way to realise this, hehe. She is, after all, a Potter through and through.

Thank you for the review, and our apologies for the lateness in the reply!

~Jess and Olivia

All in the Genes by Equinox Chick
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 18]

Summary: When Lily Potter is humiliated by her brother, she sees her chances of a date with the lush Greg Cadwallader disintegrate. But rather than hide away in the kitchens, she decides this time that James has gone too far. She wants revenge, but how does she get the punishment to fit the crime?

Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling or have any drop of Weasley pranking blood in me.

This story is for Olivia (Apollonius) who likes a certain ship as much as I do, and has written the odd prank in her time. Happy Birthday!

Wonderful, insightful, beautifully written, you characterised Ginny perfectly, although I liked Luna best - humming the School song in the face of Bellatrix Lestrange! That must have taken nerve. Please do write more!
