I love Harry Potter fan fiction, because it allows my imagination to run free!

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!!!!!

Reviews by Nagini Riddle


Hogwarts Destiny by CanisMajor

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 4 Reviews
Summary: Christmas 1940, and third-year Tom Riddle approximates a normal,
well-adjusted human being about as well as he is ever going to. Dumbledore
should be pleased, but he is facing pressures of his own, and his
well-laid plans may be going awry ...
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 05/25/12 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Love the prophecy! Amazing how it fits Voldemort so well! How did you manage to write such a well written prophecy? It was perfect! Vague, intriguing, with little comprehension, and yet, from our vantage point, we know what it means! I love that it predicted his downfall on Hogwarts' ground, by Harry Potter, which would have a fragment of his soul.
I think you need to expand this prequel! It was highly interesting, and you left it so open-ended that you could write so many things after this! Just a thought.:) loved this story!!!

Author's Response: Thanks for such a flattering review. Yes, the prophecy is vague - even by the standards of prophecies, I suspect - because it has to admit three interpretations: what Dumbledore thinks it means, what Riddle thinks it means, and what it really means. Best of luck with your own stories - I'll keep an eye peeled for them.



Conceptions by Northumbrian

Rated: 6th-7th Years • 14 Reviews
Summary: It's the 14th of February. Ron isn't stupid, he knows what that day is. But why is Hermione distracted, and what does Malfoy have to do with it?

This is Northumbrian of Ravenclaw writing for the Great Hall Cotillion which is a type of dance - who says writing fanfiction isn't educational.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 07/15/12 Title: Chapter 1: Conceptions

Goodness! Fluffy? Too much red!!!!! But I enjoyed it anyways! :D

Author's Response: Thanks. Ron and Valentines Day. He really does try, bless him. -N=



Drowning by iLuna17

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • 3 Reviews
Summary: Albus Severus Potter is not like his father. He can't defeat unimaginable evils. No matter how hard he struggled, he couldn't overcome the evil surrounding him.


Mr. Potter, your son was possessed.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 07/19/12 Title: Chapter 1: Drowning

I loved the bounce between Albus and the Healer or whatever, although I absolutely hated that last line- not because it didn't work, but because that is such an awful thing to say to someone whose son is passing away! "You should be proud." Okay, I feel like its not very comforting, and would probably not like it, but I suppose they can be good words for others. Sorry if I offended you!!!!! I didn't mean to! I just felt like that it ranks up there with "Sorry for your loss." Words that seem to no longer have meaning after awhile.
But don't forget that I enjoyed the poem!

Author's Response: Thanks for the review, first off. I'm glad you like the bounce off; that was Jess's idea (she's amazing). I'm sorry you didn't like the last line, but here's my reasoning: he knew his son was dead, and just learned why. Harry would probably be up to his nose in grief (since his son died), and in Harry's mind, it would be his fault. He probably hadn't taught them how to defend themselves against things like the Imperius curse and possession. So, hearing that Albus fought would be a good thing. And, in my mind, Harry and Albus don't get on very well. Albus is a more quiet type in my head canon when it comes to family, and maybe Harry sometimes cast him aside. Basically, I knew Harry would feel extremely guilty and I needed a reason why. So, that's my explanation, but I'm glad you liked most of my poem. :D

Neither Can Live by the opaleye

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • 5 Reviews Past Featured Story
Summary:
Neither can live while the other survives

Two minds or one? It is hard to tell where one ends and the other begins.


Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 07/01/12 Title: Chapter 1: Possession.

My favorite line had to be the first line- the sky bleeds tears of glass... The image makes me shudder! And it's totally not cliche, so original! I'm always happy to see when authors are able to break from normal phrases!
It was a beautiful poem that held me spellbound from that first line! You had such beautiful diction and prose, it made me a little jealous! :) short poems are fun to read, although I personally love to write long poems. I think you can tell when you read my poems on this website, plus on the Poetry Anyone forum!
Anyways, this isn't much of a critique or a review... So I'll just say that I thoroughly enjoyed this piece! I'm glad you were able to get it put back in the site!

Author's Response: Thank you! Wow what a lovely series of reviews :) It was such a nice surprise to see them waiting for me.



Death Came Knocking by minnabird

Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed

Wow, Death really seems so awful in this poem! Those poor poor people. I hope I never have to go through the same situations. Beautiful job!

Author's Response: Thanks. :)

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 2 Reviews
Summary: George is trying to recover from Fred's death, he really is. But everyone can see he's not doing well, and George begins to wonder if he will ever stop grieving.

A poem from George's perspective.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 07/19/12 Title: Chapter 1: Faded Light

Okay! First to review, huh?
I love the words you chose, but I feel like they would have more impact if you broke up your lines more. Other than that, it was beautiful!

Author's Response: thank you for the feedback... I was just about to give up on writing HP fanfiction but I think this changed my mind, you're lovely Xx



Advice (The Bogey Man) by minnabird

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 3 Reviews
Summary: Advice to a child: keep away from werewolves.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 06/21/12 Title: Chapter 1: Poem

Great advice! I'll be sure to watch out for werewolves and if I do get bitten, allow myself to die so my soul stays whole and pure. :)

Author's Response: Haha you do that :)



Too Late, Too Soon by hestiajones

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 7 Reviews
Summary: When he thought it had come at last, what struck Remus about the end of his youth was the abruptness.

Date: 05/27/12 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

Sigh. *weeps bitterly* I need a hankie!!!!!!!!!
*returns from blowing her nose and wiping her eyes*
Okay, now that I've got a hold of myself...
AWESOME!!!!!! I swear, you are not JKR, but you are Natalie, and you need to give yourself a lot of credit where credit is due. :)
I'd liked to see how you would write Sirius' reaction to the end of school, and also of his friends' deaths, if you haven't already. You have a real knack of capturing emotions in the moment...

Author's Response: I haven't written that yet as so many of my fellow writers have taken on that challenge and done it beautifully. You must check out Gmariam and Equinox Chick. They are fabulous Marauder Era writers!



The Weaver by Gmariam

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • 3 Reviews Past Featured Story
Summary: A short poem about a love that did not ring true.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 07/19/12 Title: Chapter 1: The Weaver

Oh I laughed alright!
Nice tale! :) They should tell it to little children like Ron Weasley. :)

Author's Response: Thank youuuuu! But I'm not sure about telling this one to little kids - it's supposed to be a bit bawdy, lol. Thanks for all the reviews! ~Gina :)



The Daydream Pedlar's Song by Equinox Chick

Hearts and love, huh? :)
Ah, to be able to escape with a love potion... You totally sold me on it! I'd like to place an order for a whole cauldronful of hot strong love potion... :D

Author's Response: Not so much love but fantasy and reverie I suspect. Thanks for the review ~Carole~



Not Even Him by AidaLuthien

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 4 Reviews
Summary: Helena Ravenclaw spent centuries keeping the secret of her mother's diadem from everyone.

So what made Tom Riddle different? This is AidaLuthien writing for the Great Hall Cotillion Challenge.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 05/24/12 Title: Chapter 1: Not Even Him

Crafty, crafty Riddle. Man, I would have fallen for his lies, just as Helena did! How does he do it?
You captured Tom perfectly! How I sometimes wish I was a character in this story that knew Tom...



The Crush by Ginny Weasley Potter

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • 3 Reviews
Summary: Not all of us experience true love, but crushes are an inevitable part of life. Unfortunately, crushes are often mistaken for love. But really, how different is actual love from plain infatuation?

This is Ginny Weasley Potter of Hufflepuff house, writing for the Great Hall Cotillion. The pairing I’ve written about is Seamus/Lavender.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 05/28/12 Title: Chapter 1: The Crush

I love this song!!!!!!!!! And what a beautiful story! I have something similar in my own life, so I really connected to this story. But, I think the death scene was, while tragic, something exquisite and extemely well-written and it actually made sense for her to die and pass on.
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!!!!

Author's Response: Thank you! Crushes are fun. Or at least they used to be. :p I'm so glad you liked the story. :) Thank you for the review!!!



Making It a Fair Fight by ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 4 Reviews
Summary: Rap along with Regulus Black in his final hours as he tells the Dark Lord how it is - to the tune of Cleaning Out My Closet by Eminem.



Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 05/31/12 Title: Chapter 1: A Rap

Spoilt produce.... What a nice phrase! Anyways, I bet this was fun to write! Although I can't imagine Regulus rapping to Voldemort, I think you really captured the essence of the youngest Black. He obviously saw the errors of his ways, quite like Percy (funny how similar they are) and I find it sad that Sirius didn't get the chance to know what his brother had found out. I still can't believe that Regulus actually did what he did when getting the horcrux.
Overall, this was a humorous tribute to the unsung hero ( although he did make it a little hard for Harry by hiding the horcrux himself)

Author's Response:

Actually, this was damned hard to write. The content itself was simple, but fitting it with the rhythm of the original song was a bear. It wasn't meant to be profound, really, but kind of a modern-ish spin on the subject. And just for funsies. :)

I always felt bad about Regulus. He gave up everything when he was so young and lost what he had left before he even had a chance to live his life. It was truly unfair.

At any rate, thanks for reading and finding such a randomly random piece on my author page. <3

Two Negatives by hestiajones

Rated: 6th-7th Years • 11 Reviews
Summary:
Marcus Flint and Millicent Bulstrode.

Love sometimes thrives in the unlikeliest quarters, and between the unlikeliest souls.



This is hestiajones of Hufflepuff submitting her eighth entry for the GH Cotillion Challenge. Thank you, Lea, for reading the chapter and giving me confidence! I am not J.K.Rowling. And thank you, Kara, for your ninja betaing skills and all the giggles!

(I know this pairing sounds kind of dire, but please give them a chance. Lol. The story is not as dark as the warnings are making it sound like :D)
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 05/27/12 Title: Chapter 2: Chapter 2

Hmm... I'm not sure I followed this one as well as your other stories, but perhaps it's because I think the characters needed some more explanation. Not a whole lot more, but I don't know why Millicent killed her mother. Perhaps this would be a good story to reread and add things here and there.
Other than that, I'll agree it was a strange pairing. But it works.

Author's Response: First of all, thank you for the crit! Why did Millicent kill her mother? I think that there is a need in her to exorcise her personal demons - the abusive mother, hateful Pansy - and because she is deeply in touch with her physical strength, that exorcism had to come through using that strength. I've tried not to elaborate too much on the characters, because I wanted to use snippets from their life to hint at how they were developing/had developed as the people they were at the point they met. I'll definitely reread this and see what else I could have added to make it more apparent. Thanks! <333



The Final Walk by hestiajones

The Folds of Life by hestiajones

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 4 Reviews
Summary: "To the well organised mind, death is but the next great adventure."

This is hestiajones' ninth submission for the GH Cotillion Challenge. I am not J.K.Rowling.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 05/24/12 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

What a unique writing style this story had. I really liked how you started it- it left me wanting to find out what was going on! This is a very nice story tht really captures that no matter how long life is, the next great adventure is awaiting us. :)
Another great story. Keep it up!

Author's Response: Yes! Optimism is the way to go :) Thank you for reading and blessing my May with so much loveliness.



If Only You Knew by hestiajones

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • 4 Reviews

This is hestiajones ... yeah. Her millionth entry for the GH Cotillion Challenge.

Thanks, Kara, for the pairing! And I'm not J.K.Rowling

Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 05/27/12 Title: Chapter 1: Prologue

I believe I've read this before, but I didn't leave a review, so here it is: Augh!!!!!! A short chapter that has left me hanging! Poor Eileen... Seriously, why did she marry Tobias? Plus, and this is nothing against you, I've always wondered why the name was Tobias Snape... It doesn't sound very Mugglish to me. Eileen Prince actually sounds more like a Muggle name. Isn't that weird?
At any rate, please continue this story! I want to see where it goes!

Author's Response: EEP! I had actually forgotten how I planned to continue this story, but your Tobias comment has set off a chain of thoughts. -ponders-



George, Please Sit Down. by welshdevondragon

Rated: 3rd-5th Years • 6 Reviews
Summary:
WAR HEROES TO DIVORCE


George and Angelina Weasley, after twenty-five years of marriage, today filed for a divorce, citing irreconcilable differences--


George couldn’t read any more, scrunching up the paper, and throwing it towards the bin. It bounced off the wall behind the bin, and instead fell, straight into the kitchen sink.

This is, shockingly, my tenth entry to the Inaugural Great Hall Cotillon.

This story was heavily inspired by the song Slipping Husband by The National.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 05/31/12 Title: Chapter 1: One-shot

What happened to George?!?!?!?!?!?! Man, I didn't realize that losing his brother could make him so dejected and detached from life! Poor George. :( He needs someone, like his daughter, to really understand him and help him out.
Nice characterization. It's too bad that people actually go through these kinds of things.

Written, hurriedly and frantically, for the Inaugural Great Hall Cotillion by Acacia Carter of Hufflepuff.

I like stories with minor characters, and I really loved this story! The Fat Lady was really well done and Sir Cadogan was overly annoying. Great job! :D



In the Deeps by minnabird
