Well, I suppose that since I have my first few stories up on the boards, it would be good to create a bio. I am a crazy thirteen-year-old girl with a weird family, weird friends, and EXTREMELY weird imagination. I have been in love with the Harry Potter series for a bit more than two years now (I discovered it the day after Christmas when I was ten years old, about to turn eleven).
My first story on these archives is called Fighting For the Cause. It's about two completely different characters who have the typical Gryffindor-Slytherin hate-and-look-down-on-each-other sort of relationship until the Death Eaters take over Hogwarts. But you'll have to read it to find out more!
The Hungarian Horntail, my first poem, is about...well, you tell me. ;)
Mother Dearest is about Hannah Abbott and her mother. It was a big challenge for me, but hopefully it paid off....
My most recent story is Where They Can't Follow. I am especially proud of this one, and I'm trying extra hard to write it! It's my first Next-Gen story (focusing on Lily Luna Potter) and is a far cry from my original headcanon after reading the Epilogue, but I think that I like it better this way.
Anyways, I am working on a BUNCH of stories just for fun right now that I might post later on. Some of the featured characters include Voldemort, Narcissa Malfoy, and Teddy Lupin...although they aren't in the same story, but rather three different ones! I'll keep you posted about when I'm ready to submit them.
Well, enough of my blabbering! Why don't you go on ahead and scroll down to check out my published works?
COMING SOON: Lessons Learned
I really liked this! Keep it up!
Author's Response: I'm glad you like it! Thanks for reading and reviewing :)
Aww! I love Rose/Scorpius fics, and this one seems to have a lot of potential. I look forward to more!
Sometimes, there are lines that refuse to be crossed.
I liked this very much, even though I wasn't sure if I would at first. It seemed very sad, and I can't say that I cared for Astoria very much, but it was overall very good writing.
Author's Response: Thanks!
This broke my heart! Right after describing how brave and reckless they are, it talks about Fred dying. Nevertheless, I thought that it was extremely well written. The line "One young forever; one young no longer" really stood out. Great job (as usual!).
Author's Response: Thank you. OOH, this seems to have made people sad. And, yes, it is sad, but what a glorious 20 years they had together. ~Carole~
This was so sad! But, as usual, you did a great job AND managed to make me feel depressed (in a good way, if that makes sense).
Author's Response: I was sad too, especially when I wrote the last set of lines. :( . Glad you sort of enjoyed it and thank you very much for leaving a review. ~Carole~
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.
This is amazing! I love your stories and I think that you portray Neville very well. Keep up the great work!
This was so sad! But you did a great job writing it. I felt so sorry for Colin--he was so close to being helped! And I was glad that Draco finally saw the light. Great job, Nadia!
Author's Response: Thank you! Writing Colin was really hard; I know he's so young but I believe the war would have made him a lot more mature, and that's why he could say such stuff. I felt really bad writing his death in this way; this was Draco's regret - if he had come to his senses just a bit sooner he might have saved Colin.
Once again, thanks for the review! I'm glad you liked it :D
This was chilling. It was very dark, and you captured Voldemort and Nagini very well. Their darkness seems to have drawn them together. Anyways, great poem. It made me shiver! :P
Author's Response: Oh thank you! I originally set out to write an epic poem about the two going through all their trials together, but the more I wrote, the more it fell apart and departed from the feel of the first few stanzas. Believe it or not, this poem actually reached 1256 words before I finally cut it down in half! I'm super excited that you took the time to read it, and also that you feel it was dark enough! I certainly tried really hard to make it that way, since I don't just automatically dive into dark words or feelings. It seems though, that since this poem, I've found it easier to do so! And how it's hard to write happy poetry! Anyways, thank you for your sweet and chilling review! :D
That was so sad! Your writing is always good, but this piece was especially beautiful. You depicted Snape's heartbreak and pain perfectly. "He couldn’t let his heart ache more than it already did." I never really thought about whether or not he would go to Diagon Alley with Lily, but now I see that it's obvious they would have :) The end of this also makes me wonder about Daisy, the little Muggleborn girl. I wonder what happened to her?
This was a perfect story--quirky, hilarious, and heartbreaking all in one. I loved the cracks about Percy flying! I also nearly cried during the funeral part.
Author's Response: Thank you very much. I liked the Percy line, too, especially as Victoire is around one year old in this story - heh heh. Oh, the funeral part choked me up a little, too. :( ~Carole~
The end of the world comes not from the hand of Lord Voldemort, but an incurable disease. When Britain falls, those that are left must keep on running.
And never stop.

Oh my gosh, this was terrifying. And so, so sad--I love Ginny and Harry! Even though I can't say that I liked the story itself, I can say that you displayed some superb writing in this piece. Good job :)
Author's Response: Thank you! I know, it's not an enjoyable read, at all, but it's good to know you liked the writing.
I'm not J.K. Rowling. I suppose more than a few of you know that.Edit: Thank you guys so much!! Over 1000 reads on my first story... whoever has read this is amazing.
I liked this chapter a lot :D However, I did notice a few things. McGonagall's father was a Muggle, so I think that she would know how to dress around them. Also, Hermione's birthday was in September. Other than that, great job! :D
Author's Response: Thanks so much!!! Yes, and I'm planning to change that as soon as possible, I'm a bit busy being on vacation at the moment :D. Thanks so much for reading!!!
Even when reading it again, that last sentence spoken by Albus sticks with me. It's just...wow!
This was well-written and absolutely wonderful^_^
Author's Response: Thank you. I enjoyed writing it and experimenting with the form. ~Carole~
Great job! You captured all of the characters so perfectly! I felt so sorry for Petunia at certain parts.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed the story!
This was so cute! :D I loved the part where George thought that Angelina would actually want to give Fred to Ron. The part with the Grangers was perfect. I can completely imagine Hermione and her mother bursting into tears while their husbands just stood staring at each other and smiling. Great job!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
Doesn't every parent, think "can we give him away?" even fleetingly in the middle of the night. Hermione does tend to get very emotional.-N-
“I haven’t seen you this hot and bothered since Marlene, you know. Reminds me of our schooldays.”
Sparks are flying between Remus and Tonks, however much Remus wants to deny it. When Sirius notices, he tries to persuade Remus to do something about it.
Written for prompt #5 of SPEW 007: Juggling.
This was so cute! I loved how Remus was in denial and Sirius was trying to twist the conversation. But the last line was actually very sad, even if it was over something as silly as juggling.
Author's Response: Thank you for the review ;) I'm glad you liked it. Remus was definitely in denial, lol. This was just a bit of silliness (hence the juggling, but it's more because of the prompt than anything), so it's nice to know there was a bit of seriousness (I am so addicted to Sirius/serious jokes) at the end. That was kind of the intention: for it to be light and fluffy but also having a slightly darker tone to it. Ta again!
I myself struggle while attempting to write Luna, but this was amazing! I love how they were born on a day that only comes around every other year--Xenophilius would probably see that as some kind of Dirigible Plum magic ^_^ Fantastic job, Sophie!
Author's Response: Awww, thanks Julie. Yes, I'm sure Xenophilius would be thrilled by the magical possibilities/implications of their birthdate. Luna would just take it all in her stride, I reckon. She does have a reputation of being hard to write, but once you've found her voice, I'm sure you'll be okay. And, actually, it's even better than you think. February 29th is only once every four years!
Here in the dark
In these lonely hours
I will lay down my heart
And I’ll feel the power
That you won’t
--I Can’t Make You Love Me by Bonnie Raitt
Albus realises just how much Rose means to him -- and how much he doesn’t mean to her.
This is babewithbrains of Ravenclaw writing for Round Two of Madam Alex’s Character Clinic Triathlon.
:) This story has been nominated for a 2012 Quicksilver Quill Award: Best Next Generation.
This story has also been nominated for a 2013 Quicksilver Quill Award: Best Next Generation. Thank you again! ♥
Okay. Loved Albus, hated Rose. She was so mean to use him like that! Twice! And poor Albus is just trying to tell her that he loves her...anyways, great story!
Author's Response: Haha, Rose was rather mean, yes. Buuuut she had a reason for that. Kind of. She didn't love Albus, not like that, and she needed someone. Albus just happened to be there, lol. I'm glad you loved Albus -- he is rather huggable to me right now, and it's lovely to know that you enjoyed the story, so thank you lots for the review :)
Helena Ravenclaw has seen many things as a ghost and as a girl.This poem placed third in the Negotioting with the Dead challenge over at Poetry Anyone, for which it was originally written.
A big thank you to Natalie/hestiajones for giving me feedback in PA and made this poem what it is now!
This was absolutely beautiful. The third stanza was my favorite...very sad, very powerful. The part about "and my life/drain away, red against white" was pure genius. Keep it up, BP! :D
Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing. I'm really glad you enjoyed the poem, and thank you for your kind compliments!
