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!)
Summary: He had told her that he'd be back. She had promised to wait.
Written for the SPEW 007 - prompt: "chase".
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.
Summary: Hermione prepares for her wedding while a war rages inside her. Are she and Ron really making the right decision? With encouragement in the form of a heartwarming note, will Hermione decide that she's ready to face what lies ahead?
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.
Summary: Selina, a third year Slytherin wakes up one day to discover she is bleeding. Convinced death is imminant, there is only one person she can talk to- her Head of House, Professor Snape.
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.
Summary: This fanfiction writer laments the loss of her favourite dark lord in a re-donk-ulous poem.
This is not very complimentary to Volders, so don't tell him about it if you see him around, okay?
Deathly Hallows spoilers.
Four times nominated for Best Poem in the Quicksilver Quills Awards!
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.
Summary: After the war's end, Ron and Hermione's happy ending is shattered by depression and loss. In an effort to find what she's lost, Hermione travels Europe alone, while Ron writes letters that he doesn't send, waiting for her return.
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.
Summary: “But I want to go home,” whispered the girl. “I don’t want to fight anymore”
Not everyone who fought in the Battle of Hogwarts wanted to be there, and not everyone survived. This is the story of one of those people.
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.
Summary: It is nighttime and I alone am wakeful. My restless mind wanders far afield, and so it is only natural that my body will follow.
A story of waking and wandering, of seeking and finding peace.
A post-Hogwarts story.
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.
Summary: COMPLETE. When trying to decide who might be worse - the Weasley twins or James and Sirius - the Fat Lady retells a story about overhearing James' confession to Lily. One-shot.
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!
Summary: The summer before Rose Weasley's seventh year is not an enjoyable one. Trapped amidst a family she's sure would prefer the boy she's turned down to the one she's given her heart to, the only comfort she finds is in the memories of the last, beautiful week of term, and the knowledge that when the holidays are over, she'll be back in his arms - that is, if he hasn't changed his mind during the summer.
*applause* Well done! I really enjoyed reading this, your sentences flowed and I fell in love with Rose and Scorpius as I read it.
Summary: Ron had the perfect plan. He was going to ask Hermione to marry him. However, his perfect plan gets ruined when his family comes home and he loses the ring. This night was supposed to be perfect; can he fix the mess and still win Hermione over?
I am GinervaPotter213 of Huflepuff and this is my entry for the I Challenge Thee challenge. My challenge is to write a one-shot of Ron proposing to Hermione including a lost engagement ring, the Weasley family and Luna.
Short, sweet, fluffy as a bunny, and wittily written. Bravo.
Summary: Neville and Luna's last night before Christmas of their seventh year. Canon compliant because, you know, it could have happened that way!
: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!
Summary: In James and Lily’s seventh year, everything changes. A war has begun, N.E.W.T.s are approaching, and James is suddenly acting like a whole new person. Lily doesn't know what to think or feel anymore, but it may well be that the events of one moonlit night on the grounds, combined with a dash of Greek mythology, will settle her head and her heart once and for all.
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! :)
Summary: It’s April Fool’s Day at Hogwarts, and three generations must uphold a Gryffindor tradition.
This story was written by Gmariam of Ravenclaw for the April Fool’s Day One-Shot Challenge.
*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 :)
Summary: Scorpius Malfoy wasn’t sure what had happened to make him feel this way. She had always been his rival, the one girl he had never wanted anything to do with. She was at the top of the class, tied with him, and he couldn’t stand being second best at anything. Then, one Valentine’s Day, everything mysteriously changed.
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!
Summary: "But it's difficult to discern meaning from anything that isn't screaming." At the end of the world, Sirius listens.
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.
Summary: He withdrew his arms from around her, and reached into the back pocket of his shorts. As he bent down to kiss her again, he took hold of her hand, and placed inside it a square box. “Happy birthday.”
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!
Summary: Ron proves his comedic mettle to a sceptical Fred. Completely AU silliness. Rated for very mild language.
Absolutely brilliant. I laughed so hard at some of the jokes-and lines-my day was that much cooler. Fantastic job.
Summary: One above, two below. We know the boy's story, what about the girl's? One-Shot about Hermione's torture by Bellatrix.
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!
Summary: Ron and Hermione make New Year's Resolutions.This was originally written for a drabble challenge of the same name, where resolutions must be made and... well, I'll let you see for yourself. A fluffy little one-shot.
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!
