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!)
I got that the second was probably Ginny and the third Hermione, but I'll have to keep working on the first. Anywho, I enjoyed reading this alot. You did a good job depicting mood and emotion as well as setting. *applauds*
Thanks for reading, and I'm glad you enjoyed it. My intended brides were Narcissa, Molly, and Hermione. Narcissa is a depiction of how things used to be, with pure-blooded girls being married off in advantageous matches, Molly because she was marrying for love despite knowing she'd always be poor, and Hermione to show the relief that life could go on as normal after the war.
Anyway, again, thanks for dropping a line. :)
Great job! Very original and very true. My sister does that all the time, looks into her crisp bag, sees it is empty, and demands to know who ate them. :) Bravo.
Author's Response: Thank you! Fat cells trick animals, too. Sometimes I have my black lab do tricks for kibbles, and when I say "all gone" he'll sniff my hand and give me a look that says, "What? Who ate them?" :D
Fantastic! That was really good, and the character's personalities and rituals were well chosen. Dunno about the other players, but I am jelous of Ginny's ritual.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
I started Ginny's "ritual" accidentally in Grave Days and then used it again in Aurors and Schoolgirls.-N-
Superbly written! Most of the rhythm flowed perfectly, and it was witty as a Limerick should be.
Author's Response: Thanks, so glad you appreciated it. Limericks are so fun :)
The darkness looms the harshest before dawn, but light will always cross lines drawn in the sand.
This is the story of the battle of Hogwarts.
This poem has been nominated for a 2011 Quicksilver Quill: Best Poem.
This poem has also been nominated for a 2012 Quicksilver Quill: Best Poem.
This was amazing! Your words flowed naturally and none of the rhyming seemed forced, It was well written and your choice of words made it all the better. It perfectly described the atmosphere of the final battle, as I saw it. Well done.
Thank you, O Pixie Duster. The flow was greatly aided by the use of iambic pentameter and a fortuitously bookmarked rhyming website, hehe. As for the atmosphere, I've been on a major battle kick lately, so it was the natural destination for this poem. I'm glad you appreciate it. :)
Harry Potter has come to Hogwarts.
But I am waiting for him.I who loved his mother, detested his father for taking her away from me. I deserved Lily Evans. I gave my word to protect her son. But how shall I stop myself? I want to see a young, helpless James Potter sqirm and writhe under my gaze....
Very, very well done. It was interesting-as much as I'm not a fan of Snape's-to see the first day of Harry's first year at Hogwarts from Snape's perspective.
You characterised Snape very well, adding in both his loathing of James and love for Lily to his reactions and personality. I like how you hinted at other parts of the series, such as his association with the other Marauders, and the flashback from fifth year.
It was short, to the point, and well written. Kudos.
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm not really a big Snape fan either, but I do think that he is probably the most interesting character in the series. Actually, I'm planning a little series of stories about Snape.... =) After all, Harry is there for six years.... Thank you about Snape's characterisation, it was a bit difficult, because he's so.....messed up inside. He loved her so much, and hated him so much, so it was tricky. =) Did I hint at other parts of the seiries? Hmnn. Must have slipped under the radar. =) I just think that Harry would cause Snape some turmoil, even just by looking at him. After all, Snape did have some..... bad experiences.... with the rest of the Marauders. I think that Snape has a quite a lot of flashbacks, but he's pretty good at concealing them. =) J.K. Thank you so much for reviewing!
This is a beautifully written piece, you conveyed the pure emotion of the moment with perfection. The raw anger and yet sadness and pain of loss is what you suceeded in capturing with this, however short. I think that in making it simple you made it all the more meaningful. Well done.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for such a nice review. I really appreciate it. I'm glad you enjoyed this story and particularly appreciate your comment about how it is short and simple yet meaningful, since I was sort of worried it was too short. Thank you! ~Gina
Well done. Perfectly fluffy and laughable, you kept it true to Ron's nature. Aside from a few misplaced commas, this piece is well written and I really enjoyed it. :)
I really, really enjoyed reading this fic! I love the theme for it. You built each situation well and the characters were strong and well developed for the short time they were there. I loved the way you made it somewhat chronological, starting with James and Lily and ending with little James and Dumbledore/Snape. It was both touching and funny. Great Job!
Author's Response: Thank you! Yes, I almost decided to start with something other than Lily and James, but then I decided I might as well start and end in something that involved a James Potter :) Thanks for reading!
In the Great Hall, the crowd is celebrating Reconstruction. Here, in this cupboard, things have just begun to fall apart.
I really like the way you did this. You kept it simple, it was elegant. The way you used setting to set the mood was perfect, and I loved the mood you used. It really set off the interaction between the two of them. It was also interesting the way you used Harry's train of thought as a part of the story. The end was very open, and it's bare simplicity made it all the more meaningful. I really enjoyed reading this, well done. :)
I'm very glad you enjoyed it. I was concerned that the end might be too open, but I just couldn't bring myself to take it any further. I didn't/don't think a 'proper ending' would have worked at all, here, and I'm not necessarily a fan of such conventions, anyway, so.....
I thank you very much for reading and for the review!
Cute, fluffy, and funny. pretty acurate too, especially with Ginny...:) good job!
Author's Response: G'day I was hoping the funny would balance out the fluff and since you mentioned both I'm guessing it worked. ...xXxLove SandyxXx...
