Let me tell you a little about myself.
My birthday is 08/09/1994. I am seventeen years old (I'm of age, haha(: ), but I turn eighteen in less than a month. I was born on a military base in Tacoma, Washington, but now I live in Denver, Colorado. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org for anyone who wants to email me about my stories. I am also a member at www.harrypotterfanfiction.com and I am known as Number_One_Ravenclaw_Forever there, so feel free to check out my stories there and the millions of other author's there. And lastly, I love reading the Harry Potter series fom J.k. Rowling, I love reading Harry Potter stories from other people, and I love writing my own Harry Potter stories!!!(:
DISCLAIMER: Unfortunately, I am not J.K. Rowling. Never was, not am now and never will be. No matter how much I wish to be her genius, it will never happen. So, inspite of that, all of my stories will be playing with the wonderful world she has created for us to enjoy. And for this kidness, I thank her!!!(:
Sorry I haven't been reading, I have been so busy, but I will finish this story eventually! I think you did really good with this chapter. I liked the news she got, haha.(:
I definitely do and I am so glad that I read this story because it was so good and I love Hermione. This actually made me want to read the books for the eighth time...
Author's Response: Aw, thank you! I really appreciated all your reviews, and I've been overwhelmed by the responses to my story! I'm so pleased you've enjoyed reading it :)
It was long and good!(:
Author's Response: That's what Cormac thinks ;-) (thank you for the review. I can never resist a smutty pun) ~Carole~
I really like the changes you made in this chapter and I can't wait to read more! I'm glad I was snooping through the reviews of some author who happened to read this because I would never have found it if I didn't...
Author's Response: Thank you. Originally, I didn't have a beta but I fixed everything up. And the next chapter will be up soon, I promise.
Okay, Iris, when will the next chapter be up????!!!!(: I can't wait to rea more! Keep me updated!(:
Author's Response: I'm having a little writer's block. It will be this month, I promise.
Muggle-born Calla thinks she is prepared for life at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. After all, her parents both went to boarding school, so what could be so different?
Calla soon finds out that expectations are never the same as reality, and learns more than she ever thought she would about loyalty, friendship, good and evil.
A/N: This story takes place during the Next Generation era. JKR’s characters have small parts throughout, but are not the main characters. I’m continuing in the alternate universe I began in Snape’s Son.
The rating for most of the story is 3-5th years, with warnings for the end chapters.
Nice chapter and hmm, can't wait!(:
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Between writing a different story and going out of town twice, I got a little sidetracked since this last chapter. All's good, though, Chapter 5 is being beta read and should be up in a little bit.
I like the idea of Dudley going to Hogwarts instead of Harry. You have one creative mind! The story was really well written. I liked the sorting the best because I wondered what house Dudley would be in. Something inside of me wanted him in Slytrherin with Malfoy, but I think he'll do well in Hufflepuff. It just seems surprising since he was so mean in the actual Harry Potter story. My question to ask is did Voldemort even happen. I noticed Lily was alive in well. I'm not saying it's a bad change or anything. I kind of like that you changed it up a bit. Good job and keep writing!(:
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm so glad you liked it. :) I struggled a long time with what house to put Dudley in; Slytherin would be a great fit, obviously, but I think there is more to him -- even if it is buried a bit -- and I wanted to see how he would turn out if he was surrounded by more positive influences. But his friendship with Malfoy is not necessarily over, and that will also have an influence. :) Great question about Voldemort. I deliberately left it open, because I wasn't sure myself! I think Voldemort was stopped before he even came to power, or at least a lot earlier in his reign of terror.
Wow, 72 reads now and this is your first review for your poem. Well, I just wanted to let you know that I loved reading about what you had to say in your poem. It was really beautiful in every aspect. Though I don't know how to decipher the meanings in poetry very well, I like the darkness in this one. The end was really great it just makes me want to say wow!!!(:
P.S. I wanted to recommend a few poems since you seem to enjoy them so much... If you are looking for something good, Check out the poems by Nagini Riddle! Her poems are amazing just like yours! For a good read, check out her poem called "Her Hand." And then, if you don't mind, you should think about nominating that particular poem to the best poetry portion of the awar QSQ thing And spread the word around!!!(: Thank you so much!(:
Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed my poem, and I give you mad props and thanks for being my first reviewer. And I have read 'Her Hand', and a few other ones by her; they are good. :)
It was okay. I understand how Lily is writing to everyone in the family, but she is just repeating the same things. I enjoyed some of it, though. As for Quidditch, it starts in November, not September... And what about all the other classes? You only mentioned Charms, Transfiguration, and History Of Magic. I don't want to put you in a bad mood and I apologize for doing so, but this is what I have to say...(: update soon because I'm nit giving up on you...(:
Author's Response: Finally! Something other than "it was very sweet"! As much as I love compliments, I need to know what I can improve on! Looking back on it now, I realize how repetitive it is. It originally was going to be multiple chapters and go through at least two months, and a lot of loose ends weren't tied up. For example, I knew I wanted her to be Seeker, but being lazy, didn't think about the dates, Paige Taylor was going to have a bigger role, and more classes were going to be mentioned. I'm most likely not updating this story, but I have a few WIPs, so stay tuned! - RavenclawHeadGirl :)
I liked it, you have skills at writing! :)
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad to know that you enjoyed it.
Okay, okay, okay, I will, I will, I will. It was really good so far, please update it because I want to read more!(:
WOW! That was so sweet and touching! I feel so bad for Severus, but the good thing about this sad story is that you gave me an idea for a story. So I thank you for that!!!(: I really wished Severus never joined Voldemort, that way Voldemort would never have known about the prophecy and Snape would have his Lily eventhough she married James. Overall great job and I can't wait to read more of what you have!!!(:
Same rating, btw, haha!!!(:
Author's Response: I'm glad you found this sweet! I think it still had some dark moments... I'm super excited that it gave you an idea and I can't wait to see what you do with it! I'll keep a lookout for your stories! And I'll be sure to leave you flattering reviews like the ones you have given me! *smiles and leaps for joy*
THANK YOU!!!(: I was wondering did you get my last email?
Author's Response: *laughs* Goodness, you are very social! Yes I did! I'll be sure to follow up on it! Good luck! :D
This is Acacia Carter of Hufflepuff writing for the first third of the Character Triathalon, for the "missing moment" prompt.
Many thanks to Jess for the lightning-fast beta.
OH MY GOD!!! THAT WAS SO GOOD!!! I NEVER WANTED IT TO END!!! IT WAS SO INTENSE AND VERY WELL WRITTEN!!! MY FAVORITE PART WAS WHAT NEVILLE SAID IN THE LAST PARAGRAPH!!! I CAN'T WAIT TO READ MORE OF WHAT YOU HAVE!!!
As for concerns, there are none! This was so nice and dark and after reading that last poem of yours, I see that you like writing about Tom Riddle and that you do have no problems with writing dark stuff.
I really enjoyed every word of this, uh, poem, story? It was obviously when Voldemort had killed his paternal side of the family. You do so well! and for my last review, I meant to put this...
(1,000,000,000,000,000,000/10) That's my rating for that poem and for this one!!!(:
Author's Response: Thanks! I have to admit, I was scared to write dark things, and I had trouble with it! Now it seems that is all I can write! I find it easier to get darker and darker!!!! I try to write happy things, but they become dark... It makes for an interesting time of writing! I really appreciate your review! Thank you!!!
I noticed that you made You Want To Make A Memory by Potter, one of your favorite stories... Did you read the whole thing? What did you think of it?? I did and I loved every bit of it!(:
Author's Response: I absolutely adored that story- that's why it is in my favorites. I also left a review behind for it, albeit short, since I was in great awe over it. :) I just loved the little details the author used, and the story made me cry at the end! I felt so bad for Remus! At least in the end he made up with Sirius! FYI, if you wish to contact me, use the contact button on my author page. You don't have to use the review button! :) And if you wish to read more of my poetry, visit my thread on the beta boards in Poetry Anyone? My thread is called the Slithering Snake... :) Maybe you will join?
Wow!(: (11/10) And no, that isn't a mistake!(:
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm so flattered by your review! I'm glad you enjoyed it!
I too nominated your poem to win best poetry because you deserve it!!!(: I can't wait to read your other poems and I can't wait until you read my poem! It's not accept onto this site, yet, but when it is, I can't wait to he's what you think!!!(:
Author's Response: Thank you so much!!!!!!!! You don't know how much that means to me! :) I'll be sure to keep an eye out for your poetry and other stories!
That was good!!!(: You are very descriptive in this story which I like! Keep writing more stories because I want to read more!!!(:
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'll try to come up with something else soon! :)
This first chapter was a tease to the next chapters, haha(:. I want to know what happens, but it's not until the next chapter. Nice work on this one, though. I guess you could say there is a cliffhanger. Keep writing!(:
