Hay, I'm Lexie, I'm really indecisive and social interaction gives me a rash. I have this fangirling disorder thing going on. Food and animals and books and constellations and british television and ice skating make me happy. Obsessive wanderlust--I want to visit and see all the things this world has to offer. David Tennant is my love, but I won't talk about the Doctor Who fandom on here. As for Harry Potter, I think I'll just say that it makes me very sad. I am awfully obsessed with it, to the point where during the day as I suffer through the monotony that is highschool I have to squelch the inner desire to make pterodactyl noises and cry over the fact that I will never get to experience the magic of Hogwarts. The sassines of Severus Snape makes me giggle. Professor McGonagall, the Marauders and Dobby rock my socks.
I'm a Gryffindor, hear me roar
Drinking butter beer and feeling true bliss, evermore
Hogwarts will always be my true home that I adore.
Summary: The first war with Lord Voldemort is constantly getting worse; people are dying left and right, dementors are attacking people on the Death Eaters' orders, and nobody knows who is trustworthy anymore. Lily Evans, in her seventh year at Howarts, does not want to be a part of the war -- but some things are unavoidable.
Oh my Merlin this is so damn good
Author's Response: Thank you so much!
Im dying!! Hahaah Sirius as a woman was hilarious, omg
Wow. Just finished reading. This story was beautiful, yet incredibly bitter and sad. So tragically great. Loved it! Tbh at times James seemed a bit out of character, but I thought you captured Sirius amazingly.
Author's Response: Thank you!
Summary: Harry and Ginny are happily married with a baby on the way. When they manipulate Ron and Hermione into both meeting them for lunch, the last thing anyone expected was for Harry and Ginny to be kidnapped.
Suddenly Ron and Hermione are left with nothing more than a note and the realization it’s up to them to follow the clues and rescue the couple they both love and adore. If only the clues weren't nonsense. If only they knew who could possibly have taken Harry and Ginny. If only they didn’t hate each other. If only they hadn’t once loved each other.
Life just got a whole lot more complicated for Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.
"Harry was right: there was no such thing as understanding girls, no matter how old a bloke got."
Mixed feels about this story. I really did enjoy the majority of it, but parts of it were too formulated and complex for me to like, simply because it was too complicated. And Harry and Ginny seemed a tad too out of cannon, I feel like they wouldn't interfere too much into Ron/Hermione's relationship, and certainly not fake being kidnapped. That being said, I loved some of the writing you did, it really flowed together! Adding this to my favorites despite the couple things I wasn't too fond of :)
Summary: Draco has lived a dull, solitary life under the Dark Lord's rule for the past two years. One night Pansy Parkinson steps into his life, changing everything he knows. Draco/Pansy one-shot.
This was written originally for wendelin the wierd's First Year Romance class, as the final assignment for that class.
This was so beautiful, magnificent, flawless.... ahh! I loved it so much, especially the end.. almost made me cry. Brilliant writing for the most part, a couple little mistakes but still very good! Loveloveloveloveloveloved this storyline though, ah. I only have one question.. what ever happened to poor little Severus Snape? Haha.
Author's Response: I am dearly sorry that I made you cry, but most pleased that you enjoyed the fic so much! As to dear Sevy . . . oh, well, I deal with him enough in my other fics. xD Thanks so much for R-&-R-ing!
Rose was a Weasley. She never gave Scorpius Malfoy a second glance. They were sworn enemies, even though they’d barely even spoken to each other. But sometimes all it takes for love to blossom is a Potions lesson, a few snide remarks and a dropped book.
Two people. Two entirely different worlds that are suddenly intertwined.
Loved this so much! I started this last evening and read close to 12 am, then got up early this morning to finish it! Overall it was excellent writing, there were certain little mistakes and things I would have loved to hear more about, such as Hogsmeade and Scorpious, Rose and friends sneaking around Hogwarts after hours, but I just loved this. One of the only super long fics that kept me wanting more.
Summary: James would do anything to get inside Lily’s head. Lily would do anything to get away from James. Lily was brewing a banned potion. James went to find her. Lily made a mistake and the potion exploded. James got his wish, but is it much more than he bargained for?
After a year the Epilouge is now up! Come read for a bit of fun!!
Runner up QSQ - Best Chaptered Canon Romance
Reason for Nomination:
This is the most unique take on how James and Lily really got to know each other. The story is hilarious and keeps you laughing throughout, but it never lets you forget the serious stuff. Plus, she somehow manages to end each chapter with a nice cliffhanger.
FAVORITE STORY SO FAR. I can't. This has made me laugh incredibly hard, your writing is flawlessly brilliant, so in cannon for the characters, I LOVE IT.
I AM MAKING PTERODACTYL NOISES OF DELIGHT OMG I JUST FINISHED THIS and it was literally my favorite fanfic that I have EVER had the chance of stumbling upon, bless you for writing this because it was superb and just GREAT. I loved every part, but I'd have to say that one of my favorites was James getting all heated up reading Orsha's Wish hahaha. And I loved the Sirius+Lily friendship, and you just captured everyone so perfectly, I felt as if I was reading something JK Rowling would have written if SHE had been a fanfic writer writing about HP written by someone else I don't even know if you can understand that but really I am raving it was just excellent I love you. This was beautiful I'm just going to stop typing now I hope I've somehow managed to convey my love for this story to you goodbye
Summary: “Guilt brings people together. It’s a takes one to know one type thing.”
James Potter has always been a spoiled, arrogant, lazy show-off. When he enters his final year at Hogwarts School, he’s Head Boy . . . and he’s still a spoiled, arrogant, lazy, show-off. But because of that terrible summer, he’s also guilt-ridden.
Lily Evans has always been a self-righteous, impatient, temperamental know-it-all. When she begins her last year at Hogwarts, she’s Head Girl . . . and still a self-righteous, impatient, temperamental know-it-all. But the first night back — and the murder that takes the entire school by surprise — leave her guilt-ridden as well.
With the darkness that’s surrounding the Wizarding world slowly seeping, at long last, onto the grounds of Hogwarts and into the lives of James Potter and Lily Evans, what comes next?
Again.. this was absolutely amazing, brilliant, PERFECT. Epilogue actually had me in tears, partly from the flawless writing and partly from the emotion.. SO GOOD. When I reread the books, I think of this fan fiction as what actually occurred between James and Lily, ahh! And I picture the epilogue being what happened, omg. I just can't. I loved this so much, the best fan fiction I've ever read. You had the perfect amount of hilarious dialogue, fluff, and angst/dark material. Gorgeous writing, :)
I take a deep breath so my voice won’t shake.
“What would you do if we died tomorrow?”
He takes a step away from me, but still keeps me in his arms. “What?”
“What would you do if you knew that we died tomorrow?”
“What kind of question is that?”
“Don’t give me that, James. You know that we are going to die soon. There is no point in pretending that we aren’t.”
James and Lily have a conversation two days before Halloween.
This was pretty well written! It took a very slightly different approach than I would have imagined for Lily's character, but I really liked it.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I actually do not like the writing in this. It was my first time writing in first person, and I think I butchered it. How do you normally view Lily? I've seen so many different portrayals of her; some see m so far off, others I think hit the mark. I really am happy that you like it.
Summary: Many difficult things have been asked of Severus Snape over the years, and perhaps this latest one ought not to have been the hardest. But yet, he knew that, just beyond the gargoyle, he would be forced to confront the most difficult test he'd ever known: facing the man he killed.
This was literally flawless. Such flowing, perfect writing. Thumbs up!
Summary: One above, two below. We know the boy's story, what about the girl's? One-Shot about Hermione's torture by Bellatrix.
I liked this very much!
Author's Response: I know it's quite late, but thank you! Thank you so much for reading and for the review.
Summary: On the morning of Hermione’s 18th birthday, Ron hunts as Harry gathers. One boy is successful, while the other is not. At the end of an hour, who is to blame?
This story has been nominated for the 2012 Quick Silver Quills: Best Dark/ Angst Fic
Beautiful! This was quite a pleasure to read, so in character.
Summary: Ginny is forced to choose between her husband and lover. Will she choose the Lion or the Snake?
*H/G, D/G* *One-Shot*
Constructive criticism: I didn't like this much. Just my honest opinion. It felt too much like a reality tv show or something, and the characters would didn't fit together or act like themselves at all. It had parts of good writing though!
Summary: When Lily asks James to teach her how to play Quidditch, James comes up with an interesting analogy...
Really well written, perfect length not to mention that you captured the characters in exactly the way that I would have imagined! Brilliant :)
Summary: Neville has got quite enough to be getting on with already, thank you very much, and this... situation with Luna is not making things any easier.
You capture Luna so well! Beautiful story, out of the two chapters I've read so far! Not a single flaw at all in your writing, wow.
Summary: Katie's feelings for Oliver were written on her heart long ago in one perfect summer, but to him all they ever were was friends.
Now, Katie has to find to strength to face that's all they'll ever be and accept that he is engaged to someone else.
This was so good! I really love your writing :) Not to mention that I've always loved to hear anything about Oliver Wood and his little romances, haha. But seriously, the way you twist words just makes them so... I dunno, amazing!
Sometimes, there is little else to hold onto except dreams and moments.
Because sometimes, when all else is lost, they are all we have left.
I owe infinite thanks to Alex/welshdevondragon, who took the time to beta and primp this story and is also just a wonderful person.
Winner of the 2012 Quicksilver Quill Award - Best General Story, along with Julia/theopaleye's fabulous fic Maps
This is one of the most beautiful pieces of writing I have ever read. Wow. It flowed so nicely, so delicately, so perfectly. Amazing job!
Author's Response: That is such an amazing compliment - thank you for reading and leaving such a thoughtful review! xx Ariana
