Hello and welcome to all you fantastic Harry Potter fans out there. You people make my day.
My name is Rue, Harry Potter (in my opinion) is the best series ever, and Marvel Comic books are amazing. I love X-Men, Spiderman, and Thor. I like Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, the Outsiders, the Song of the Lioness series, Tom Sawer,and the Septimus Heap series. I like watching Mythbusters and Big Bang Theory.
I live in northern U.S.A., though I spent a large chunk of my childhood in the U.K. I have lots of siblings and a cat. I am still going to school and I hope to go into science and technology as a career field. I love to write and I am an obsessed fan of Harry Potter and Star Wars. I collect comic books, and I have a passion for chocolate to rival Remus Lupin. I keep both in a shoebox in my closet. I love rain, trees, and swimming.
As for Fan-Fiction, I write a TON of poetry (I have a whole notebook full of it), so that is mostly what you will see on here. I feel I should perhaps inform you of my shipping preferences as well to avoid confusion, so here is the run-down:
My OTP: Ron/Hermione
Ships I like: I support all canon ships, faves being Ron/Hermione, James/Lily, Harry/Ginny, and Remus/Tonks
Ships I don't do: I Do not support Draco ships (D/G and D/Hr)and firmly believe Draco Malfoy should stay lonely, though I give all due respect to those who do ship him. Ginny and Hermione deserve better, in my opinion.
I Do not ship Harmony. Never have, never will.
I am insanely canon crazy, for AU stories, might I suggest the amazing ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor?
Thank you for wasting 90 seconds of your life. I am eternally grateful. (Review, review, review!)
Wow, well done. That was really touching and the story fit well with the lyrics of the song. I'm not usually one for " after Harry died" stories, but I really liked the way you did this. The only thing I was confused about is what happened to Hermione. Did she leave? Die? Either way, it was well written. Good job.
Author's Response: Oh, thank you! It's been so, so long since I wrote this fic that I'm kind of afraid to reread it - I'll just be cringing at all the things I want to change! But either way, I'm glad you enjoyed it. :) If I'm not mistaken, I think that I intended for the ending to be inconclusive. But the way I see it, Hermione just got tired of waiting and started a new life somewhere else.
Simple, lovely, elaegant. A fantastic portrayal of their relationship: flawed and perfect at the same time. Ron and Hermione have always been my OTP, thanks for showing why.
Hilarious! I can just imagine the stoic, sneering professor Snape faced with a clueless girl on her time of month. I do think, however, that Snape was a bit OOC; but it is a humour story, so it doesn't matter. Very creative, and well done.
Wow, I laughed the whole way through. Awesome job, I love the line /That by now, you've got less fans than George has got ears./ Your flow was good and rhyming effortless, the whole poem wonderfully witty. Three words describing this piece? My thoughts exactly.
Wow, the last bit made my cheeks hurt. That was a brilliant mix of fluff, sappiness,and drama. Excellent. I wish the opening scene was longer, a bit deeper, but even so you did a fantastic job.
This was a very well written fic. Often I find that OC stories similar to this one are too cliche and the characters are to shallow to be believable. This came across as very believable, the kind of story that happens all the time but isn't recognised as much. Charlotte was well characterised, however briefly, as the average 12 y.o. girl in the wrong place at the wrong time. Well done.
I love your writing style, it is almost graceful, like reading an ice skater...if that makes any sense at all.
Your story is very, very good. It is something I can personally see happening, and I like the internal monologue Teddy has. It makes you think.
Author's Response: Its been a long time since I have gotten any reviews, because it has been a long time since I have posted any stories. I was so glad to see yours. Thank you for the kind words on my style; I read my stories aloud when I write, to listen for the rhythm of the words so the ice skater analogy makes perfect sense to me. I do have some drabbles on the beta boards and the memorial finds its way into many of them. If you are interested, I am indigo_mouse on the beta boards as well.
I absolutely loved it! It was really cute, and a little cliche, but hey, what's wrong with some cliches now and then? I laughed when Violet said told the Fat Lady how she wished stuff like that happened in front of her portrait..It makes me wonder what else the portraits have heard... ;) Great job!
*applause* Well done! I really enjoyed reading this, your sentences flowed and I fell in love with Rose and Scorpius as I read it.
Short, sweet, fluffy as a bunny, and wittily written. Bravo.
:D Great job!
I really like the theme you used for the piece, and I think you characterized both Neville and Luna pretty well. It was well written, simple and elegant. The end was perfect: sweet and akward. :)
Author's Response: I've been thinking of writing another story (although not one about Neville and Luna) and getting a new review after such a long time is very encouraging. Thank you!
I have always loved that myth, I even have that book Lily was reading! This was really creative, I had never thought of this situation that way, but it makes sense: a stag and two "dogs" all fighting. Your take on it was really fun to read, the dialogue was good, and it was just the right mix of fluff, fun, and siriousness. Great job! :)
*applauds* This is really creative and original, but I really can see something like this happening. I love how you put in Dumbledore's name as a past pranker, nice touch. Well done!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'm glad you enjoyed this, I had fun with it! And I'm glad you got the Dumbledore reference, although I think that was my beta's crowning touch. Thanks again for the lovely review! ~Gina :)
Great job! I really enjoyed this. I feel you wrote the characters fairly well, besides the couple cliches of course :). It was light, funny, and well thought out. I liked it!
Wow, well done. I love the simplicity of it, so short but yet you manage to convey all that feeling and more. It really flowed, and the ending seemed perfect. You really did this darker side of Sirius's experiences justice. Good job, I really enjoyed this.
This is the tale of a birthday… A seventeenth birthday, no less. It tells of a present given to a redheaded teenager by the love of her life, a gift that became the best present she would ever receive; better than all past and all future presents. It tells of a present she would never, ever forget.
Yayzers! I love this! *Adds to faves* It was perfectly sweet and fluffy, you captured them as a couple really well. I love Harry's letter...It's so Harry..even if a bit girly! Good job :)
After it was all said and done, Harry wanted a sandwich. However, Ron knew that what he wanted was far deeper and complex and maddening and insufferable. But could Hermione ever forgive him for leaving her behind? Could he ever forgive himself?
This story was nominated for a 2011 Quicksilver Quill Award: Best Canon Romance.
This made me smile :D. Good job, superbly done. I love the fact that you made Ron during the conversation somewhat nervous, but at the end:
[Never again would he let that sort of doubt plague him again, because damn it all, he was Ron effing Weasley, slayer of Horcruxes and champion of the elves!
Really, what wasn’t to love?]
He was plain old Ron. Thank you for making my day brighter for two whole minutes. ;)
I'm glad you like it. I just had a thought one day about what happened to the rest of the Trio after Harry went for a sandwich and a nap. And Ron probably is nervous about much of what he says and does around Hermione, even before this. :D
Thanks for reading and reviewing!
Absolutely brilliant. I laughed so hard at some of the jokes-and lines-my day was that much cooler. Fantastic job.
I liked it. You didn't go on and on, you kept it to the point and your words were well chosen. I love the line
"Her boys. Ron, blindly brave, stupidly courageous Ron, who would not want to leave her, and Harry, who she hoped would be wise enough to know that they should."
Because it is so true, and just so Hermione. You did a good job with this piece. :)
I'm glad you liked it.
I really didn't want to slip into melodrama, here. I think this teeters right on the edge, sometimes, and the only cure for that is to keep things shorter and sharper. I hope I was successful.
Thank you so much for reading and for the review!
Thanks to Natalie for her mad, QSQ-winning beta skills
Well done! I know you have probably heard this before, but I will say it agian. That was cute, fluffy, funny, and extremely fun to read, as I absolutely adore R/Hr. Good job!
Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it!
