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!

Goodness! You captured the emotion so well, I felt like crying with Angelina! Nice job!
Author's Response: Thank you! Am glad you liked it.
Back to review again- I really like the meter of this poem! :) It flows very nicely and I enjoyed how "bouncy" it was.
I also love the refrain, and I particularly like how the refrain wasn't overused, and also changed at the end. The refrain was able to wrap the poem together, and also give this sense that Death really wanted to capture these three brothers. Very well done!
1. Stanza 5, line 2: "the gone" doesn't seem to fit well grammatically. I would change "the" to "who'd" to give the sense that the stone is meant to raise those who have passed away, rather than just a category of "gone" people. :)
2. Meterwise, in stanza 7, line 4, there seems to be one syllable too many. I would suggest changing "Never" to "Ne'er," although doing so means you might want to work some other words with deleted syllables into the poem as well to keep it consistent. The tone of "Ne'er" would actually work for this poem, since the story itself is supposed to have happened a long time ago, and when using words like "ne'er" it helps to date a piece.
Other than that, I really enjoyed the poem. :) It was a fun and refreshing way of telling the Tale of the Three Brothers!
Nice! What a great tribute to the Tale of the Three Brothers. :) I especially liked the repeating refrain and how it changed at the very end. :)
Is this about the famous trio?
I found this very exquisite! What a poem! Your first time? It doesn't seem like it!
Author's Response: Yes it is. Specifically about how I think Ron and Hermione are Harry's greatest strength. You flatter me, but this is really my first poem! Thank you for your review :)
I knew it was a dream! I've nothing else really to say... Poor Snape...
Author's Response: LOL.
How could I have read this and not left a review???? Augh! I really loved this story, and I like how James got back at Lily for her joke. :D this was a story that definitely lightened my day when I read it, and I'm sure it will continue to do so for everyone else!
Author's Response: Hehehe! You literally just made an awful day of studying until my brain melted good! I'm really glad you liked it! Oh! And when I reviewed your story with the postscript, I actually meant your actual name ( my name is Cailee too... I just spell it really weird. Oh parents...) But really, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I think I may be addicted to exclamation marks...
She was the first to accept me for who I was, Muggle father and all. The teachers didn’t count. Dumbledore accepted me out of duty; Slughorn accepted me for his own personal gain. She accepted me out of love.
Would you have been any different if you had had your world ripped apart and your heart shattered until there was nothing left to love with?
This is a story about a boy and a decision that he regretted. A decision he had made a few times before. Tom Riddle made the decision to say so many times those words that would eventually be his downfall.
How interesting. I liked the thought process of this story, although it is a little hard to believe that the two students were never found again- where exactly in the Room of Requirement did he put them? Surely Draco or Harry would have found them later, seeing as they had been in the place of Hidden Things. Though, when I think in it, their bodies won't be found because of the cursed fire that was set by Crabbe in the room... How sad... :( but, this story was still well written!!:)
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! Tom, I assume, hid the bodies reasonably deep in the Room of Hidden Things, and it seems like a pretty big place, so I think if he hid them in a cupboard or under a pile of stuff they would probably not be found again. It is rather sad that their bodies will never be found, but sadness is real and it is inevitable.
What a great sonnet! I don't know who I would choose.... But I enjoyed it still the same!
Author's Response: Thank you again for reading my poems! I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for the review! ~Gina :)
How can you be done with this????? Augh, I want more now!!!!!!!! Uncle Sev? And Harry not a wizard? I need this explained more!!!!! Another chapter would be great! And does Voldemort exist in this realm? What will happen next?
You have left me hungry for more, and only you can satisfy this...
Author's Response: Thanks so much! It's really encouraging to hear that you enjoyed it. :) I am currently working on a sequel/second chapter, but it's a bit stalled right now...We'll see what happens, but I do want to continue this story!!
As Ron arrived at Shell Cottage, he soon came to realise that the things that drove him away were not nearly as important as that which made him want to go back.
I dare to review! And I found this so touching! I loved the imagery in the first stanza, last line: velvet, fiery plume! Beautiful job!!!!!!
The way you've written this suggests a silent duel- silent but violent. It was beautiful. I especially like the last line, because it suggests that Voldemort is so arrogant as to think he is the judge of everyone, but we know he is not. Her case may be closed in his eyes, but I believe her case will continue on in the hereafter ( if you would like to believe in an afterlife).
Author's Response: Voldemort is a prick, and he would love murdering powerful wizards and witches personally. UGH. Yes, her case will continue, although I doubt Voldemort will get anywhere near hell or heaven lol.
I'm thinking, isn't that enough? I'm also thinking, "The review box says hello?" I don't hear it saying that... :)
Anyways, I'm not going to write a long review because I want to read your other work! YOU are an awesome author, and I want to get through every story and poem before the month ends. It probably won't happen- you have so much!!!!!! Just keep it flowing, though, so my sick days can be filled with your imaginative words. :) :) :)
Author's Response: OMG. I don't know what to say, except that I am really excited and happy and honoured by your trail of reviews! It means so much to me, that somebody should be willing to want to read more without stopping. THANK YOU for taking the time to review. It's always easier just to walk away, so it means a lot to me that you chose to stay for a few seconds and leave these encouraging words! ~Natalie
Who is Petunia Dursley?
This was my favourite of the entries that I submitted to The Sharp Challenge in Poetry, Anyone? on the beta boards.
Nominated for a 2012 Quicksilver Quill.
I absolutely adored your punctuation, especially at the end. And it is nice to know that Petunia doesn't always want to be uptight... :) Nice job!
Sorry it took so long to respond. I'm not sure what you mean by adoring my punctuation, though, lol!
Thanks for the review.
This poem is very ambiguous, and I can see it working as original work! Perhaps adding a more recognizable Harry Potter element? Although, I find it beautiful just the way it is. :) Nice job.
Tasty caramel or hard to chew caramel?
I love the metaphor, and how it perfectly describes his personality and appearance! Teehee! I really found myself liking the structure, too! I do not have the guts to do so, but way to go! It totally worked. :)
Author's Response: Thank you!!! I really should mention here that Natalie was a huge inspiration here for showing a different way to write these metaphor poems. I seldom write Harry (or the other members of the Trio) so it was great to get my teeth into somehing solely about him. You really should have a go at this form. It's a lot of fun (believe me I'm terrified whenever Julia posts a challenge) Thanks again ~Carole~
Oh, so sad! I loved the rhythm this poem had! Very beautiful job. :) Keep it up!
Author's Response: Thank you.
My favorite line was that both were baptized by the Phoenix feathers. It makes the wands take on a life of their own, which we know is not impossible since the wand chooses the wizard. Plus, being baptized refers to being cleansed of sin, and since Phoenix tears have healing powers, it works, then, that the wood would be baptized. And then it becomes a battle between good and evil... The yew wand took on countless sins while the holly wand continued to be "baptized" because it strove for what was good. So, what I'm trying to say is that your diction was flawless in this piece, and served to be quite powerful.
Author's Response: THANK YOU! I'm so pleased you commented on this :)
Wow! I loved it. Sad that I'm the only reviewer!
I love your vision of what happened after the battle. It feels sad, but hopeful. Nice job!
Cedric Diggory is far from perfect.
This poem received third place in The Sharp Challenge over on the Mugglenet Fanfiction Beta Boards.
Nominated for a 2012 Quicksilver Quill Award.
Wow! I really enjoyed it.
Was the capitalization like this done on purpose? And what for? It kind of made me feel like Cedric wasn't perfect in that regard.
Poor Cedric... Hope he is happy wherever he may be.
Author's Response: Taaaa--I'm glad you liked it. The capitalisation was done on purpose, but mostly because I like poems written that way and really had nothing to do with Cedric, hehe. Cedric is one of my favourite characters, actually, and I feel like he doesn't get enough love. (Like this poem...hehehe) Thanks for the review. Lily :)
How sad and yet hopeful at the same time. You really captured Sirius in these few words. I especially like that he was "the wind caught in flying curtains." How sad that he fell through that veil, his laughter still etched on his handsome face!!!!!!
I've donated more than a few words. I think I should get some special prize for this. ;) *chuckles* Keep up the writing. Maybe you will reach a hundred stories soon!
Author's Response: YOU ARE AMAZING AND DESERVE ALL THE PRIZES ON EARTH! I WOULD KISS YOUR HANDS if we didn't live miles apart, which I am assuming we do :D
