I love Harry Potter fan fiction, because it allows my imagination to run free!
I probably could be doing something more productive, but since I love to read and write, and hope to be an author one day, this doesn't seem like a whole waste of time!!!!
I love this site so much. It really let's me challenge my mind and see things in a whole new light.
Go fan fiction!!!!!

EDIT: I am a poetry nut! So watch out for all my poetry and you can even check some of my poetry out on Poetry Anyone? in the Beta Forums, if you are able to get an account. :) Also watch out if you write poetry, too! I am sure to review it, and possibly leave behind a critique!

Through Winter's Dusty Memories by rita_skeeter

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: The next time you see me, I'll turn away.

Two people meet unxepectedly one night, and find warmth where they never knew they would. They are only almost strangers, after all.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 07/16/12 Title: Chapter 1: Almost Strangers

Actually, I think Petunia can take James if she wants. ;) Then Lily gets Severus! Sorry, totally off topic!
I loved your characterization of Petunia! It puts her in a whole new light! Great job!

The Aurora Box by Skipper424

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Lily is having a tough time getting along with her sister. As she becomes more aware of her magic side, Petunias resentment is growing at a proportional rate, to a point where Lily is having second thoughts about wanting to learn more magic. Severus despises Petunia for what he feels is selfishness and jealously. His more immediate problem, however, is trying to make sure Lily stays enthusiastic about magic so that she will go to Hogwarts. There, he is sure he will have more time with her away from her narrow-minded, Muggle sister.

This story was written by Skipper of Hufflepuff for the November One-Shot Challenge.

When Darkness Meets Light by Hypatia

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Severus dwells on a Christmas past, bitter over how fate snatched away his only love. However, Christmas is a time for miracles, and Severus discovers some gifts keep on giving.
Originally submitted to the November One-Shot Challenge: Young Love.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 05/26/12 Title: Chapter 1: When Darkness Meets Light

Awwwwwwwww!!!!!!!!!!! Man, this was a heartbreaker of a story!! The minute I read about the fawn in the ornament, I melted and I squealed that it was Snape and Lily's patronus. I wasn't disappointed later when Snape called the necklace that! Oh, how I'm sad those two didn't end up together!
Perfect story, though. Makes me wish with all my heart to become a better person before its too late and I lose what I can't replace. *eyes fill with tears* sigh...

Author's Response: I'm really glad you liked the ornament! (Keep an eye out in Much More Than A Game to find out how this particular ornament ended up in Snape's family.) Plus, for what it's worth, I've generally found that the point of too late is that moment when that person walks away; everythng up to that point still holds hope. :)

Thanks for rviewing,

The Queen of May by Chaser921

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • Past Featured Story
Summary: On the night before her wedding to James, Lily wakes up with icy feet. So when a ghost from her past shows up out of the blue, what can she do but wait for the sun to rise?
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 07/16/12 Title: Chapter 1: Before the Sunrise

No!!!!!!!!!!!! Darn it, Roxy! This was so sad, and I'm wishing with all my heart that these two had worked out together! But it was a beautiful story, anyways. :)

More Than A Game by Hypatia

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: “Lord Voldemort has never had a friend, nor do I believe that he has ever wanted one.” -Dumbledore, HBP, ch. 13

Dumbledore was rarely wrong, only once did Lord Voldemort desire a friend. It started out as only a game…

First place winner in the Color of Love Challenge.

Date: 05/24/12 Title: Chapter 1: More Than A Game

Hmm... I decided to read this after reading Much More Than a Game, and I have to say that I love this short version, but I'm also glad that you decided to extend it. This chapter seemed to end so abruptly!
I love your work, and I hope to read more. I can't believe the number of stories you've written! I hope to be able to enjoy them all, and perhaps continue to be inspired by your beautiful and elegant writing style. :)

Author's Response: I'm gald you enjoyed it! There was so much that I wanted to add to this at the time but as it was for a one-shot challenge, everything had to fit into one chapter. Plus, there were a lot of side plots that got woven in over the years that separate the two stories. *cough* werewolves *cough* So... I guess you've probably noticed that Hadrian Jones will be appearing in upcoming chapters of Much More Than A Game... ;)

Thank you for your thoughtful review,

Snivellus and the Head Girl by SeverusSempra

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • Past Featured Story
Summary: The summer after fifth year, Severus Snape realises that he has to decide between Lily and his Dark companions and pursuits. Now all he has to do is get used to life at Hogwarts with no friends, get over his fascination with the Dark Arts, survive the Marauders, and convince Lily to acknowledge that he's alive.

Easier said than done.

Date: 05/29/12 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1- The End of the World

Oh what to say? I absolutely adore this story and I especially love your characterization of Snape. I feel like he and Lily really do deserve to be together, because of the way you have written them. Oh please up date this story!!!!! This is going into my favorites, and I would love it if this story could actually be finished, too. You have such a fluent writing style and you are able to get into the characters' heads really well! I feel like I understand and appreciate them all a little more. :D So please continue this story!!!!

The Only Thing by moonymaniac

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Lily Potter’s love and sacrifice for her son is legend. But there was another member of the Potter family. James Potter was more than an arrogant toerag who finally grew up, more than a Marauder, more than a member of the Order of the Phoenix. He was a father.

How on earth would a man like James Potter handle that responsibility, at the tender age of twenty, especially at a time when his world was crumbling all around him?
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 06/01/12 Title: Chapter 1: The Only Thing

What a tear jerker! I have a baby in my own home, and I feel the exact same way.
I think you captured this scene perfectly! I absolutely loved this story, and I hope you keep it up. Your stories are really good!

Author's Response: Oh, thank you, Nagini Riddle. I'm so glad you liked it. I did enjoy writing this little piece, so thank you for letting me know you enjoyed it, too. I really appreciate you giving my stories some love!!! :)

O Voldy-Mort by Sly Severus

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: O Christmas Tree, Voldy style.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 07/02/12 Title: Chapter 1: O Voldy-Mort

Well, I really enjoyed this humorous song! Some of it didn't work well with the tune, but I still loved it! :)

Author's Response: Glad you got a chuckle out of it. I've never been too good at getting the lyrics to fit for these challenges, but they're still fun to write. :)

Don't Forget the Mornings by Rhi for HP

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • Past Featured Story
Summary: A little yellow poem you might construe as you desire.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 02/28/14 Title: Chapter 1: Don't Forget the Mornings

I found this poem to be so beautiful! I loved the rhythm and flow, and I definitely see this a being part of a poet's writing, so don't try to say you aren't a poet. :)

I, personally, see this as being able to work outside of the wizarding world, and it is a very good way of using ambiguity, because it shows that people with magic are just the same with their emotions as people without magic.

Even though I see from the reviews that this was Harry/Ginny, I thought of Molly/Arthur like Carole. Arthur seems more the type to sing and whistle than Harry. :p And as Carole pointed out, Molly is associated with cooking, and I think she would be more inclined to think of yellow mornings. But in that same respect, perhaps this could be Luna/Rolfe, as she is associated with the color yellow, and it would be just like her to try to see the brighter things in life that nobody else pays much attention to. And since we don't know anything about Rolfe, he could be someone to sing and cook. :)

I do, however, love the depth of this poem, and the layers of emotion it conveys. Great job!

His Eyes by Sly Severus

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Lily's thoughts after Severus calls her a Mudblood.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 07/02/12 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Wow! I think what would have made this even better was if those last three words were inverted to say, Empty. Hard. Cold. I think it would have wrapped this poem up much better, because it would start with the word cold, and then ends with the same word. Other than that, I think it was great!

Author's Response: Thanks so much. That's actually a really good idea.

The Family Pearl by Sly Severus

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Narcissa contemplates her life after the final battle.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 07/02/12 Title: Chapter 1: The Family Pearl

How sad! Narcissa could have decided that she was a person who loved her family, but I suppose she was so empty and effected by the war that she just lost her way... Great poem! J love the rhyme. :)

Author's Response: Okay, I just re-read this poem since I didn't remember it from so long ago. Thanks for the review and reminding me that I'd written this.

The Writer by Sainyn Swiftfoot

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • Past Featured Story

A writer struggling with writer's block.

A bedtime story.

A legend.

Very nice story! I loved the bedtime narration- it makes me feel better about my struggles to write sometimes.

The Dare by majestic_ginny

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: We all think that James Potter was actually like his grandfather- a prankster, while Albus Potter is just a sweet, innocent boy, a victim of his brother's pranks. But what if in reality it was the other way round?
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 07/01/12 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1: The Dare

I want cyber-cookies!!!! I laughed at this story, but I just couldn't imagine Albus as being bad! I think it's mainly due to how he acted in the epilogue, and James was definitely loud and a teaser. Still, I know that siblings sometimes get away with everything! I enjoyed the banter between these two! It felt like a real family! :)

Author's Response: Haha, he's your cyber cookie! :D I don't know how this story popped into my head, but it did and I just had to write it. I know Albus seems like that shy and timid guy but kids are quite adept to behaving like the goody-goody in front of their parents - trust me, I've got many younger cousins who do that, so I'd know. I had a lot of trouble writing Harry, but in the end he turned out okay; just like the Dad-Harry I'd like to read about. Family is an awesome thing, especially if it's the Potters or the Weasleys. And my family is as awesome and as crazy as I imagine the Weasley-Potter clan is, lol.

Thanks for the review, dear, I'm glad I could make you laugh! :D

I Am Alive by the opaleye

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • Past Featured Story
Summary: After his conversation with Dumbledore at King's Cross, Harry wakes and reflects on life and what it means.

2009 Quicksilver Quill Award Winner for Best Poetry!
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 07/01/12 Title: Chapter 1: I am alive

Perfect! This is an awesome mixture of found poetry and original poetry! I'm wondering if we are allowed to submit entirely found poetry? Meaning, using only phrases found not quite at random from the books and placing them in such a way to make a lyrical piece. Hmm...
Anyways, I loved it! I can see why it won!

~Nagini Riddle

Author's Response: Thanks! I'm not sure if you would be allowed to submit a fully fledged found poetry poem as there may be restrictions. You could definitely ask one of the archive mods. There is an archive question thread in PA or you could just post in Ask a Mod. Again, thanks for the review :)

Then, Harry Potter comes and the Dark Lord casts the Killing Curse...yet, Harry, as Narcissa finds out, is not dead. Why does she decide to lie for him?

Natalie, you crack me up! No wait- I meant to say JKR. I was confused there for a moment... :)
I totally liked this story. I especially loved the title. It was well fitting for Narcissa. :)
Though this was one of your earlier works, it is still magnificent! Would you consider being my beta?
