My name is Envy, and once upon a time, I discovered MNFF, and fell in love. I read story after story, and decided that I had found my kind of people. I eventually persuaded myself to get an account, and start writing my own stories.
Things I enjoy: Music. A looooot of it. (I like everything, but mostly rock, metal, heavy rock, things of that nature), Glee (Hehe), reading, writing, and doing odd and whimsical things, such as making my own words :)
Dislikes: Broccoli, rap music (I can only tolerate so much of it), spiders, mean people
Pairings: I am a huge Dramione fan, so there will be some Draco and Hermione lovin :) I'm pretty canon-compliant, so I ship things like Harry/Ginny, although I write what comes to me, so sometimes, I will do non-canon pairings. Can't stomach them? I am sure there will be something for everyone, once I get things going. I like romance, too, so... yeah. Hehe.
Finally, I hope that you all enjoy! My goal is for my writing to be an experience: I want the readers to enjoy my work as much as possible. I want my characters to be real and my stories fantastic. I am totally open to criticism, so tell me what you love or what you hate, and I shall improve! I'm looking forward to hearing from some readers :)
Summary: The first time it happens, he is fourteen. Sitting at the Gryffindor table, Peter thinks of murder. (What's wrong with him?)
[Peter Pettigrew, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and the logic of fives. Dark, some disturbing imagery. One shot.]
Wow. Just... wow. I simply loved this. The way you captured the OCD and used it as a sort of crutch for his turn to the Death Eaters is phenomenal. I have OCD myself, and I completely understand the need to do things a certain way (although not as extreme), and it all makes perfect sense. This was very powerful, in a subtle way. Excellent job. This one is definitely going in my favorites :)
Petunia, Vernon and possibly a little Polyjuice Potion by the opaleye
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 4]
Summary: All Petunia Evans wants is to find a husband and settle down into her dream role as a suburban housewife. So when Lucinda Rubble brings her new beau, Vernon Dursley, back to the nurse dormitory one evening, Petunia knows he is the one. But she must enlist the help of her magical sister, Lily, if she is to succeed in catching the man of her dreams.
This was a really sweet, cute story. I liked how it showed the softer side of Petunia; it sheds a different light on them, and it was cute :)
Author's Response: Thanks! Goodness, I haven't thought about this fic in a long time. It's nice that it's still enjoyed by some readers :)
All Teddy Lupin had ever wanted was to be the kind of man his godfather was. He even followed in Harry's footsteps and became an Auror.
Harry wanted nothing more than to be the father that Teddy would never have, but work and obligations always seemed to get in the way. Before he knew it, Teddy was all grown up. How had he missed all those precious moments? He knew he had to make up for it somehow.
After all, they had all the time in the world, right?
This fic WON a 2011 Quicksilver Quill Award: Best Post-Hogwarts Story
This story was amazing. It brought tears to my eyes; the emotions were raw and powerful, and it was just... breath-taking.
I'm glad you appreciated, as the word 'enjoy' seems rather inappropriate. It was a hard thing to write, but it was always a story I had planned to tell. Poor Teddy. :/
Summary: Winner of the 2011 QSQ Award for Best Dark/Angsty One-shot!
It is true what they say about your life flashing before your eyes just before you die. As Theodore Nott, Death Eater like his father before him, stands on the battlefield in what is surely Hogwarts and his final hours, he remembers all that lays behind him: his father, the Dark Lord, the one girl he ever loved, and the thing he has forced himself to forget.
But you remember, don't you, Theodore?
Please tell me you remember me.
This story... blew my mind. It was so beautiful, and it made my heart ache for poor Theo. I think he's a very interesting character to work with, because we know so little about him, and you took advantage of that. You took it and ran with it, and the result was mind-blowingly beautiful. The was it was written was excellent, and I cried at the end. It was just so powerful; it was breath-taking and brilliant. I loved every second of it. I really look forward to reading more from you :)

I love this story! I think the Slytherin Harry has a lot of interesting qualities, and I am really looking forward to the rest of the story :)
Author's Response: Thank you for the review, I'm glad you like this so far. As for Slytherin Harry's 'interesting qualities', I didn't realise he had any... this is just me imagining being an eleven year old boy. It's really quite fun!

This story is insanely amazing. I forgive you for the long break in between posting because of how good this chapter was. Intense? Very much so. But I love it. I love everything about this story. You have an amazing talent; the emotions are raw and powerful, and the story itself is brilliant. It really could have happened in the books. But this story... amazing. And it has brought tears to my eyes more than once. I can't wait for the rest!
Author's Response: Wow. Wow. Wow. That's all I've said for the past minute over and over after reading your review. I cannot express my gratitude enough for your wonderful words. This story is the first one I've ever written, and it just came out of my soul and begged to go on paper. I love Draco, and there is so much to him if you really look at his life. That you feel it really could have happened in the books is a HUGE compliment!!! I'm touched that this story has brought tears to your eyes. Your revew just brought tears to mine. I welcome your words anytime for the remainder of the story. Thank you so very much!! Lots of luv, Stef :)
You're at it again! This story never fails to make me gasp and want more. I simply love how Bellatrix is completely insane, and Snape's hawk made me cheer. Go Athena! Love, love, love it! Keep it up!
Author's Response: Hi, hunny! Always wonderful to hear from you! Glad the story is keeping its hold on you. :D Yeah, Bellatrix is in-freaking-sane in my story, but I like her that way, hee hee. You made my day about Athena the Hawk! I was so nervous about it- I wasn't sure if readers were going to love her or think that she's ridiculous! I love her, and she gets Snape off the hook as well. I'll queue up the next chapter very soon, I promise. Thanks again, so much! Luv, Stef :)
Beautiful! This chapter was just beautiful. Love it!
Author's Response: Sorry it's taken me so long to respond! I really appreciate your comments, as always. You always give me encouragement!! I'm so glad you loved this chapter.

Gorgeous! I'm on edge for the next chapter. I simply love this story :)
Author's Response: Thanks, hunny- That means a lot! Hope I continue to do it justice for you. Next chapter's up! Luv, Stef :)
Again, no disappointment here! I'm loving every second of this; poor Draco! I hope Harry and Ron don't give him too much trouble- the poor guy has already been through Hell. Anywho, I'm rambling. Can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Awww, thank you- glad you liked it! Hate to tell you, but it's not gonna be pretty between Draco, Ron and Harry. Be prepared in the next chapter. :O Can't wait to hear your thoughts on it. Thanks again, sweetie! Luv, Stef :)
Summary: Hermione sits and thinks of the boy who left and why she did not follow.
Tied in first place for the 2011 Quicksilver Quill Award in Best Poetry.
This was gorgeous! I loved the rhythm and flow of it, and the emotions were spot-on. I loved how you described their feelings towards Harry's inevitable death, and how you painted it with her pleas for them to forget everything and stay; that was a scene that really struck a chord with me, as well. To put it simply, this piece was beautiful and inspiring, and I loved every line!
Author's Response: Thanks so much :)
This is a story of forbidden love.
The beauty and the beast.
Romeo and Juliet.
Cleopatra and Marc Antony.
Lancelot and Guinevere.
A story of supposed hate that turned to that of hidden passion.
Of two people that were never meant to be together...
...or were they?
"Words are only painted fire; a look is the fire itself."
Note: This is most likely going to be a short chaptered fic (less than 10 chapters).
I thought it was brilliant; you have a way with words. Hmm... about the ending; I say surprise me! Whatever direction you think the story should go, because you are the author, after all. I think I would be happy with whatever ending you come up with :)
Author's Response: Well thank you! I've pretty much decided where I want the ending to go, but if you ever have any suggestions, just let me know! I'm always open to new ideas. :)

Summary: It's after the war and Voldemort has won, leaving the wizarding world decimated and all those not of pureblood status dubbed less than human. Hermione must find a way to live in a world that no longer wants her, and when Ginny's youngest child Lily is put into danger, she turns to the least likely person for help and sells herself to the Death Eaters in exchange for saving Lily. Darkfic, post Hogwarts, AU.
I am in love with this story. The writing is amazing, the characterization is phenomenal, and... it.s just so good! I love the power and the emotion and the back-stories... I can't wait for the rest :)
Summary: What if, on that fateful October night, it was not Lily's sacrifice that saved Harry, but James' sacrifice that saved them both? What if Lily is left to pick up the broken pieces of her life after its been shattered into a million pieces? Who would be there to rescue her? Who would get her through the night? This is a story of loss, of pain, of hopelessness, and ultimately, of healing.
After much deliberation and input from all you guys who have read thus far, I have officially decided to continue this story. It was initially supposed to be a one-shot, but I've decided I already have too much of my heart invested in it to quit now. :) Second chapter in progress. Thanks, all! Advice and reviews are still very welcome!
I thought this was a beautifully written story. I loved the emotion and the wording, and loved the story itself. It's a very unique take on that fateful night; I enjoyed it a lot. I look forward to reading more from you!
Author's Response: Wow, thank you so much. I really enjoyed writing it, and I'm glad you felt the same way. It was something that had been on my heart for a while, and I really needed to get it out there. Second chapter should be up sometime soon. Thanks again for your praise! :)
Summary: Katie Bell had nothing left to live for, but perhaps someone, who she would never have expected to understand, could show her what it means to be alive.
That was amazing! It was beautifully written and powerfully emotional in all the right ways. I liked it a lot.
There is no love between them; there is only passion and burning desire.
But for Susan, this is enough. She has loved and lost before, and she can’t handle losing again.
The lust is much easier to deal with.
