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: Life’s choices are unfair, difficult, and occasionally impossible. But to stand in inaction is to perish, and to perish is to fail. What determines survival, and ultimately success, is one’s ability to adapt to the consequences of the action taken, regardless of whether it’s right or wrong.
This story... wow. This story is simply beautiful. The writing... my God, the writing is captivating and spectacular; the characterization is phenomenal, and this story is simply amazing. I cannot wait for the rest.
Author's Response: Thank you!!
Summary: Hermione goes through some horrible thoughts while destroying the Hufflepuff cup, the fourth horcrux. Only Ron can help her through it, but only if he can overcome his own insecurities.
I thought this was really good. I loved it; it was short and simple, but it had a lot of depth and meaning in it. I really enjoyed it :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I chose this scene because it had strong emotions. It was out of my comfort zone, so I'm glad you liked it.
Summary: After Lily leaves her Defence Against the Dark Arts O.W.L, she writes a poem to the person she thought was her best friend for life.
Poor Sev! I liked it :)
Author's Response: Thank you, and thanks for reading. :-)
Summary: There is a thin line between love and hate. There is an even thinner line between Gryffindor and Slytherin; the willingness to do anything to achieve their goals. Gryffindors cannot see the big picture, and if they come to a decision to choose between the greater good and their loved ones or himself, they would sacrifice the world for their friends.
Slytherins are different. We know the value of sacrifice, but there is something else that separates us from those who wear red and gold. We will fight as hard as we can, in any way possible, even if it may be seen as unjustified or morally wrong. Gryffindors let their consciences get in the way of the greater goal. We don’t, but no one believes that we can fight for the right cause. They remember us as the evil, idiotic, or simply power hungry. They don’t remember us for what we are; who we are. We’re here to change that.
They will remember us, and they will remember us as those who fought all prejudice and cruelty simply because were were done with it. They will remember us, and the next time they think of a phoenix rising from the ashes they will remember this phrase:
Remember the Slytherins.
Nominated in the 2012 QSQ Awards - Next Gen/OC for Nick.
This story is amazing, Ellie!!!! I really like your writing style; it's very unique, and that interests me. I like the way you characterized Nick; she's very head-strong, and very Slytherin, indeed. But I am rather curious as to who gave her that scar... I hope we find out soon! But I really am enjoying this; keep it up, and update soon!!!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! :)
I'm glad you like it. My writing is a little ... quirky. And Nick is one of the most stubborn people I've met (created), except maybe Al. As for the scar, chapter 12-13ish should reveal all. I already posted the next chapter, and until eleven it should be one right after the other. I'm so glad you like it. Thanks for reviewing!
Summary: Victory Day. A day of celebration and remembrance . For Lily, it is also a day of confusion and sadness. She wants to understand in a world that knows no terror. This year, she'll discover exactly what Victory Day means to her.
Winner of the 2012 Next-Gen QSQ Award
That was beautiful, Maple! It was very lovely; the emotion and depth was rather moving. Beautiful!
Author's Response: Thanks :)
Celestina Warbeck takes the stage once again, this time with the world premiere of a Christmas album. This jolly, heartfelt volume will bring the joy of the holiday season to any and all of the listeners of the Wizarding Wireless Network!
This album is a compilation of both the Great Hall's Great Hall-iday Bonus Challenge and Poetry Anyone's December Carol Challenge. Enjoy!
I loved that! The fact that it was Draco/Harry made me smile with fsngirl love. It was adorable! Reminds me of Kurt and Blaine on Glee :)
Thank you for the review. I had the Tom Jones Cerys Matthews version hammering my head as I wrote it, actually. Much as I love Kurt and Blaine, their version isn't smutty enough for me - *snigger* ~Carole~
That was fantastically cute :)
I'm glad you enjoyed it. It was a fun activity for everyone, and hopefully we'll do it again next year. :D
Two minds or one? It is hard to tell where one ends and the other begins.
Oh my goodness. That was supremely powerful. It was short, but that's part of what packs the punch. That was gorgeous and stunning. Loved it!
Author's Response: Thanks!
Summary: Sitting in my room watching raindrops dancing on the window pane, I try to catch the attention of the passers by, but no one can see.
They never see.
In her room at St Mungo's, Alice sits and waits.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling. She wrote in so few words a scene between Neville and Alice that never fails to make me cry.
This story was inspired by the song Shadows in the Rain, by The Police. It was originally a drabble written for the lovely Ariana (lucca4) in the SBBC Musical Drabble Exchange.
Thank you, Natalie (hestiajones) for beta'ing the original drabble.
You have amazed me yet again. This was simply stunning; I loved it so much. I don't think that Neville's parents get enough credit or attention for what happened to them. But this... this was phenomenal. It was beautifully written, and had the right depth and emotion to the story. It was heart-melting. Loved it to pieces!
Author's Response: Thank you very much. Unlike my usual stories, I found it hard to add to the original drabble because other things seemed superfluous. I'm very pleased you found this successful. It's pretty different from my usual writing, but i was pleased with the end product. Thank you ~Carole~
Summary: 421 hours. That’s how long I spent in hell.
Hell was humid and hot, and was a ten-meter concrete box. It was filled with blackouts, and mind tricks. It was filled with pain. It was filled with memories; so horrid you wish you would die again just to escape it. The only thing hell wasn’t was lonely. The devil was always there to remind me exactly where I was.
Above all, hell was painful. And I couldn’t escape it.
This is a companion piece to All That’s Left. It isn’t completely necessary to read it before this, but I would recommend it.
Oh. My. Godric. That was spectacular! Like I said on the boards, it was deliciously dark. I loved every second of it; you really had me going! I was so afraid for James, and I thought everyone was dead... Wow. Just wow. Wow!
Author's Response: I love the dark stuff, don't you? Who needs teenage romance when you can have almost every character die?
Hehehe, that actually wasn't that sarcastic. Anyways, thank you so much for the review. I'm glad I manage to convince you of the deaths . . . and I have this to say: did you believe I killed James? I would really be a horrible person if I did, after all I put him through, in All That's Left and this.
Thank you so much. I'm really glad you enjoyed it. :)
Summary: In dark times, what makes Harry carry on when things seem inevitable? A poem from Harry‘s POV.
This is beautiful. I loke the chopy style of it; I think it really captures the true essence of Harry's emotion. I also like the word choices; such as when you said they were helping him move his aching legs; it was very good :)
Author's Response: Thank you for the nice review :). I didn't mean for it too be choppy but I guess it worked out. I only hope to expand on this and get better.
Summary: That night, he came to end her trial.Disclaimer: I am not J.K.Rowling.
That was beautiful! It was very powerful; your word choice was excellent. I loved the wrath and power that came from the words; it just jumped off the page right at me. I just loved it! It was excellent :)
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! :)
A voice said, Look me in the stars,
And tell me truly, men of earth,
If all the soul-and-body scars,
Were not too much to pay for birth - Robert Frost
This was so beautiful. I have tears in my eyes; this was... heartbreaking. Goodness, I'm going to cry! I loved it so much.
Summary: It's over between Harry and Ginny. So who's the new girl? Is she the one or is she danger?Disclaimer: I am not J.K.Rowling
You should take it further! I think that would be a rather interesting pairing, and knowing how well you can work with rarepairs, I would love to see your take on this :)
Author's Response: Your wish is my command :) I shall definitely do a follow-up soon.
Summary: When Narcissa Malfoy gives birth to her son, Lucius should be overjoyed. Instead, his wife is being swallowed by a darkness that he doesn't know how to fight, and the life they have built might yet be lost.
This is Karaley Dargen of Gryffindor submitting my entry for Rosmerta's Mini-Gauntlet being held in The Three Broomsticks over at the MNFF beta boards.
Wow. This was amazing. This story was captivating; very emotional. I loved it!
Author's Response: Yay! Thank you for the review!
Summary: Written for the 2012 Character Challenge, a missing moment in which Draco Malfoy receives the Dark Mark before returning to school for his sixth year. Several years later, he violently regrets his choice.
This story was positively heart-wrenching. My goodness, I found myself gasping and holding my breath (if that makes any sense, lol) the entire time. You did a brilliant job.
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'm glad it was effective, since there is always that chance that it's more effective for the writer than the reader, or that I just didn't get it down well enough to work. Thanks so much for reading, I appreciate the review!! ~Gina :)
