Musings by 1000timesingoldenink

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Luna ought to be working on her History of Magic essay, but instead she’s scribbling a poem in the margin of her paper, contemplating the definition of reality.

Nominated for a 2013 QSQ.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 06/02/13 Title: Chapter 1: musings

Why did I never see this????????? I need to get on the site more often!

WOW! I loved this! It seems just like Luna, and I am so impressed. And, Jenny, you are one of those poets that can render me speechless, no matter how much you try to deny it.

I thought the structure was genius, by the way. And the simplicity of it made it so much more poignant. I especially liked the part where she described proof as "dull," and faith as "bright." I sometimes feel the same way... :)

Philosopher's Stone by 1000timesingoldenink

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •

He who robs me of my purse robs me of nothing.
Twas mine, tis his, and has been slave to thousands.

--William Shakespeare

The stars are far brighter
Than gems without measure,
The moon is far whiter
Than silver in treasure.

--J. R. R. Tolkien

There are some who, were the sun pure gold, would snatch it from the sky.

Not I.

This poem got third place in the first PA challenge I ever participated in, The Anniversary Challenge v.2. :D It has also been nominated for a 2013 QSQ.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 06/02/13 Title: Chapter 1: A Perenelle Villanelle

Well, I have to say that you have mastered the Villanelle form! :) I just loved all the imagery, and Perenelle's wisdom, although glory of the world is probably not one of the top things on my list to want. Fabulous job, Jenny. I'm sorry that I never critiqued or reviewed this before now, but I didn't feel worthy enough to do so. *chuckles* still don't, but I thought I would tell you that I enjoyed it.

Author's Response: Thank you! I know what you mean...when you read a piece of utter brilliance by Julia or Natalie or Minna or Carole, and you simultaneously feel awe and unworthiness...it's a lovely feeling, but it makes reviewing very difficult! I maintain that none of my poetry ought to make anyone feel unworthy (especially not you, what with your plethora of amazing free verse poems!), but I am really glad you enjoyed it. Writing as Perenelle came naturally somehow. Her wisdom is not, after all, very complicated: it is just the opposite. Simple, and beautiful. And that's all I was trying to capture...within the rhyme and pattern confines of a villanelle! It took a quite a while to write and draft... ;D Anyway, thanks again for your ever-so-delightful review!

The Storm by BrokenPromise

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Hermione reflects during Ron's absence.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 05/16/13 Title: Chapter 1: The Storm

Wow! :) This was so dramatic, but in a good way. I really liked your direct tone, which felt very Hermione-ish to me. Great job!

Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you liked it!

The Peverell Prophecy by Equinox Chick

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: The Peverell brothers attempted to cheat Death.

Only one came close.

Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling.

Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 10/21/13 Title: Chapter 1: The Peverell Prophecy

Hello! Thought I would return the favor of you reviewing my poetry. :)

I really like the refrain, and how it is used to show what happens to each brother. That in itself was genius.

Overall, I loved the rhythm and the length of the poem, which really helped to capture each brother in a snapshot!

A couple things stood out that bothered me:

1. Punctutation. The first stanza might work better if there were commas after the first and second lines, but not the third. And then the last line needs a period, since you have every other stanza ending with one. For the second stanza, I would take out the comma on the third line. And then for the third stanza, the second line feels like an aside, which needs appropriate punctuation to set it off. So visually, the poem should look like this:

The combative man seeking to defeat,
With wand of elder grown,
Will meet an end inglorious
When Death marks him as his own.

The doleful man who yearns to steal
Souls by turn of stone,
Through endless grief will meet his fate
When Death marks him as his own.

But the clever man wishing to hide,
To tarry longer at his home-
His lifelong days will be strifeless.
And he’ll mark Death as his own.

2. Meter. This is only for the very last line. I feel like this statement would be stronger and flow a little smoother if you took out the "and" at the beginning of the last line. Of course, it isn't necessary, but it just felt like it needed to be a little stronger.

Thanks for a great read, Carole. I always enjoy your poetry. :) ~Nagini

Author's Response: Thank you very much. Yes, I was very sloppy with that full stop. It should have been there. I'm going to take another look through. I like the last line through. The additional word was deliberate because the third brother's life and death are very different from his older brothers. Thank you again. Carole

PS: SO sorry I called you Hayley. I know you're Kaylee, but my mind was elsewhere.

Taboos by William Brennan

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: After the war, the Auror Office decides to Taboo the Unforgivable Curses so that any use of them can be detected. This doesn't quite go as planned however...
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 05/31/13 Title: Chapter 1: Taboos

Shouldn't it detect the actual curse, rather than the word? *smiles* I mean, if someone did it nonverbally, the taboo wouldn't catch that, but it should catch the magic of it. If the ministry did that, I think it would be better.

Anyways, I didn't mean to pull it apart and dissect it like that. I had a fun time reading this and I was laughing, wondering how in the world the Ministry never foresaw the problem!

Does anything sound like Voldemort? Perhaps not in English, but in French and Latin something might... :) His Taboo was probably more refined, though, being a great wizard and all.

Okay, I shall stop talking. Great story!

Author's Response: Detection of the magic itself can't be done. The Trace does it, but that doesn't work for adults. As for nonverbal, the Unforgivable Curses are hard as it is (consider what the fake Moody said when demonstrating them) and very few wizards would be able to do them nonverbally, which is considerably more difficult. Even Voldemort said the incantations if in a situation in which it didn't create a big tactical disadvantage.

The Interview by HalfASlug

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: 10th November, 1981. Severus Snape has been summoned to Hogwarts for the first time since the war. For everyone else the fighting has finished, but for him it must continue. He is about to learn the true meaning of 'anything' and who better to teach him than the Hogwarts Headmaster.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 05/25/13 Title: Chapter 1: one-shot

Oh my goodness! This is my new favorite story, and I think you capture Severus' character extremely well. :) What a read! It makes me want to write more about Severus' pain. And wow! Dumbledore was spot on. This was extremely entertaining, poignant, and depressing all at th same time. Thank you for taking the time to share it with us. ~Nagini

Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! Oh wow! I am honoured! They are both so hard to write because of all the layers and lies and ulterior motives so I'm over the moon that you thought they were in character. Thanks again for the lovely review :)

Uncertainty by 1000timesingoldenink

Definitely wasn't me.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 06/22/13 Title: Chapter 1: Fluff

*snickers* Nice summary, Jenny. Just popping in to say that I still love this poem, even if it is fluff. And my favorite part is still that first stanza were you interrupt the lines with "if knuts were wishes!" Teehee!

Goodbye by phoenix_tearPatronus

Date: 07/25/13 Title: Chapter 1: Goodbye


Hello, Abi. ;) I am so happy to see other people branching out into poetry, and I really liked your poem. I loved the type of narrative it was in, and especially found the rhyme scheme to be very effective. Great job! Perhaps I will see more from you...

~Nagini, fellow poet

Author's Response: Hi, Nagini =) Thank you for the lovely review! Hopefully there may be some more in the future.. As promised, here are you cookies ;) ~Abi~

The Edge by Reckless

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Darkness was never as alluring as in the form of Bellatrix Lestrange.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 12/19/13 Title: Chapter 1: Down. Down. Down

Hello! I really am impressed by your meter, especially in the second stanza. :) I also love your fourth line- "a cross on the heart, and a heart full of ice."

I wonder why you broke your rhyme scheme at the end, but it still works, since "paradise" has the same vowel sound as "side" and "guide," making it a half-rhyme, and it really didn't detract from the over all poem. I am curious, though, as to why you chose to do that. Your rhyme scheme worked as AABBCCDDEE-and then it stopped for your last two lines. For me, I could put some symbolism into it and say that Bellatrix is twisted and mad, and therefore, the ending breaking the rhyme pattern shows that. ;) Okay, no need for me to go off on some wild analysis, here.

Nice job! I hope to see more. :) In case you didn't know, I love poetry (my author page will reflect that), and I always look forward to seeing another poet's work!

Welcome to the fansite! ~Nagini Riddle

Author's Response: Thanks for the welcome! *Goes to check out Nagini's work*

The Hourglasses by Oregonian

Rated: 1st-2nd Years • Past Featured Story
Summary: They have existed for centuries, seeing generations of students. What have they learned that we need to know?

This poem won Second Place in the 2013 Aisling Challenge.

This poem was nominated for the 2014 Quicksilver Quill Award: Best Poetry.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 10/21/13 Title: Chapter 1: The Hourglasses

Wow! Very nice. I love the advice at the end. One shouldn't focus on prizes, because doing good is its own reward. I think the world in general needs to hear this advice daily. :) Thank you for a lesson learned, Vicky.

Author's Response: Oh thank you for writing a review. (Poetry doesn't get a lot of reviews.) I think that the lesson is one that we appreciate more in adulthood than we did in childhood, when we still responded very positively to rewards and bribes ("If you are good, I will read you a story.")

Beaten and Blown by dreamsnape

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Snape meets with Lily in a graveyard, hoping to continue his friendship with her, and hoping that it may become something more. But she isn't who she seems to be, and years will pass before either of them learn the truth.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 10/28/13 Title: Chapter 2: Chapter 2 Devotion

Plot twists! :)

I rather liked his, because I think it would fit into the books rather well (then again, I am a sucker for Sev/Lily). I love that in this story, Lily was able to find out everything Severus did, and how he was now trying to save her from Voldemort, because I would hate for Lily to have died and not known the truth about Snape. But knowing the type of person Lily is, she probably understood a lot more about Severus than other people did, and I am willing to bet that she thought of him often.
Thanks for a good read. Good luck with the challenge!

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I'm so glad you enjoyed it.

Time, Space, and Blunt Force Trauma by teh tarik

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •

On the very last day of his life, Sirius Black was bored. Bored, bored, bored.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 04/18/14 Title: Chapter 1: for old times' sake

Augh! I don't know what to say! At the beginning, you captured the boredom so well, the way that every little detail was paid attention to in the house to signify that Sirius has too much time on his hands in which to accomplish nothing. The fact that Sirius passes said time by breaking and fixing his mother's crystal tells me that he has resorted to trying to find ways of getting some satisfaction out of spite towards his family, but all he can really do is drink.
I never realized before that Sirius and James had both shared that feeling! What a great comparison, showing that James had been in a similar situation, but at least he was protecting Harry and his wife. But what was Sirius protecting besides his own life? I can see why Sirius would be so happy, then, to get out of the house and rush off to defend Harry, because his pride and ego thrive off of it, and also because he cannot stand to do nothing.
But the saddest part of all is Sirius forgetting it all. Though I think you really aptly captured his character with the fact that he could not forget laughter, which is rather bittersweet when you think about it. On the one hand, it is a really good and special thing to hold onto, remembering laughter. But on the other, it is all he remembers, and he can't even remember his best friends names. *silently cries*
I also think that the last line of your story was perfect. The fact that those words echo and whisper is a great way of showing that he is not only falling through the veil (where the voices whisper), but also that he is slowly fading away (though, perhaps, not as slow as I described there). I particularly like the words "I am," because it gives this sense that even though Sirius is no longer living in his mortal body, he does still exist, and therefore, "he is." And at the same time, it also gives a echo of his own joke, which, in a way, shows that Sirius was the embodiment of merriment and laughter, despite the fact that his name is a homophone. :)
A very good read! Thank you for taking the time to share it with us. ~Nagini

Author's Response:

Oh my goodness, Nagini! What a wonderful surprise review! And such a lovely detailed one as well! b25; Thank you so much, love!

I was indeed trying to capture Sirius's boredom and sense of entrapment - poor Sirius; he always seems doomed to experience one kind of imprisonment or other, whether Azkaban, or Grimmauld Place, or his own sense of guilt. He is indeed unnecessarily spiteful in some parts of the story, toward Kreacher, and possibly toward that portrait of his mother. I was trying to show Sirius as someone who's lost touch a little, who's alienation has made him lose a little empathy for others. He's also lost touch with reality a bit, which is why he's so eager to rush out for a fight, and that he becomes reckless, which proves to be a fatal mistake. Kind of takes the battle as a game, actually.

Oh, I love your interpretation of the ending, with Sirius being unable to forget laughter! As for the forgetting bits, I'd say it was necessary, I guess. But as you can see from DH, it's not the end for him. Do not be upset. :)

Thank you so much for this wonderful review, Nagini!

Dark Enough To See The Stars by Oregonian

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Scorpius is looking for answers in the constellation that bears his name. He becomes what he was not, and stumbles into Hogwarts' past, thanks to an unexpected arrival from the heavens.

This is Vicki of Slytherin House, writing for the 2014 TV Challenge. This story is also my final exam of "So This Is Romance" Independent Study Class, 2014, at the Mugglenet Fanfiction Beta Boards.

This story was nominated for the 2015 Quicksilver Quill Award, Best Next-Generation.

Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 07/31/14 Title: Chapter 1: Dark Enough To See The Stars

SQUEEEEEE! You completed the challenge!!!!! Good luck! :)

And might I be allowed to say how awesome this story is? Even though there wasn't a basilisk or treasure in the chamber, in a way, there were skeletons, if we are going to say that the founders were buried there.

And the ending is so precious! I can imagine Scorpius saying it, and what better timing?

It's funny how worried you were at the start about this story being a little cliche with romance, but I think it works as a whole, and it was entertaining to watch Scorpius' carefully laid plans go awry in ways unexpected. And now he has a wonderful experience shared with Rose.

Who knows? Maybe Scorpius will grow up to be an astronomer, or maybe even decide to be an astronaut... Curse my plot bunnies!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for saying that it was awesome. And no to the treasure or basilisk, but yes to the skeletons and even the dusty old equipment if you count the bug. I enjoyed seeing Scorpius change and grow from the beginning to the end, and I think he has much more respect for the competence of his "old lady" professors than he did at the start.

Yes, I was worried at the beginning about how to avoid some major cliches, so I turned around 180 degrees and drove in the opposite direction, and it was a great ride. Thanks for your unceasing support.

Vincent (Inspired by Tim Burton) by Kerichi

Rated: 6th-7th Years •
Summary: Vincent Crabbe is eighteen years old. And sadistic. And creepy.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 07/08/15 Title: Chapter 1: Embracing the Dark

When I read the title, I thought, "Hey, I just put up a poem with the same title!" And then I saw your lovely author's note, and was taken aback that I could have inspired you to write something, even if it is in the fashion of Tim Burton. :) Haha, good job! I am sure Burton would be pleased, and I did like the little allusion to Holes thrown in!

Author's Response: Hi there! Yes, you inspired, although in an unusual way. :D Thanks for saying Burton would be pleased and liking the Holes reference!

Tom Riddle Walks into a Pub by Kerichi

Rated: 6th-7th Years •

Tom Riddle tests the Legilimency skills of Crabbe and Avery by sending them into the Guts for Garters pub. Their mission: manipulate a woman into inviting them home.

* A rah, rah, ah-ah-ah, ro mah, ro-mah-mah, Gaga ooh-la-la, want your bad romance story.*

Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 08/06/15 Title: Chapter 1: The Valkyrie

Hahaha, wow, this was sufficiently dark and weird. :) It would make perfect sense for Tom to know the barmaid and be using her to test some of his followers. And I loved how Crabbe immediately broke down! And Avery seemed very in character.
And thanks for the small nod to my eventual OC piece. Of course Tom will find someone more powerful (and perhaps more beautiful). And thanks for pointing out that Tom is more drawn to power.
I will say the part where he was using Legilimency was slightly confusing to me, but I ma sure a second read would help me better understand it (plus, I am so tired my eyelids feel raw).
Now I have to write my story! Gah!
This ought to be fun...

Author's Response: Thank you for reading and reviewing! Tom is drawn to power, but he likes females with power to be attractive if the relationship's going to be sexual. He, of course, can look like a snake and expect witches like Bellatrix to offer to give him everything anytime and anywhere.

Pensive by foolondahill17

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: Or, seven times Severus Snape wanted and could not have Lily Evans. "The glass was a cruel barrier. More than once he found his mind flitting -- feverishly, uncontrollably -- to the idea of shattering it, of setting her free and into his arms." The best of Severus Snape was his biggest regret.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 09/07/15 Title: Chapter 1: Pensive

Very nice job! :) I completely forgot that Severus would have reason to hate Black other than just the fact that he and Potter had bullied him. I also could not believe that I had missed the irony of Snape housing Pettigrew--Lily's betrayer--at the beginning of the sixth book. Gah! You have added even more dimension to Snape's character!!!!! Thank you!!!

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it. I wrote this over a period of several years, re-reading the books and watching the movies until little bits and pieces of Snape's character sort of just fell into my lap. Some of it blew me away, as well ;)

An Offer I Couldn't Refuse by Kerichi

Rated: 6th-7th Years •

When Olive Hornby petitions the Ministry to stop Moaning Myrtle from haunting her, Agent Atwell, Spirit Division, makes Myrtle an offer she can't refuse.

Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 10/24/15 Title: Chapter 1: Resolving Issues

Bahahahahahahaha! I am laughing so hard at this! :) Way to take this in a direction I would never have thought possible, particularly for Moaning Myrtle!

Author's Response: Thank you! Agent Atwell isn't exactly the Ghost Whisperer, hehheh, but it was definitely time for Myrtle to move on. :D

The Friar's Unexpected Army by Oregonian

Rated: 1st-2nd Years •
Summary: The Fat Friar rises above himself on the eve of battle and reaches out to allies in a way never before dreamed of. Who would have guessed they could understand?

A Missing Moment from the Battle of Hogwarts

Written for the Ghost Writer Challenge in the Great Hall

Nominated for 2016 Quicksilver Quill Award, Best General Story

Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 11/08/15 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

I had such a great review written and then the site stopped working!
Nice beginning. :) It really fleshes out Friar's character and I love how he is an unexpected leader for an unexpected army. A wonderful missing moment. Plants are people, too! Hahaha, I am reminded of the trees in Chronicles of Narnia and the Ents in Lord of the Rings. Plants certainly seem to make a difference in war!

Author's Response: What a wonderful thought about the plants in other epic stories. That hadn't occurred to me! I'm glad you like the new-and-improved first part of the story. Thank you so much for leaving such a nice review.

Epithalamium by Squibstress

Rated: Professors •
Summary: Minerva McGonagall is a bright, talented witch with dreams of becoming the first woman in the Auror corps. Albus Dumbledore is famous, brilliant, flawed, and more than forty years her senior. Their love-affair will change their lives in ways neither anticipates and places them in the sights of the man who will become the greatest threat the wizarding world has ever known.

No!!!!!! I was looking forward to reading fifty more chapters! But I was relieved to see there are more stories! Please please please do all you can to get them up quickly!
I realize I haven't been reviewing as I go, but I did thoroughly enjoy this story, and I also have enjoyed reading your other works here on the archives. I can't wait to see more!
I also really liked the characterization of Tom. I really want to read about another duel between him and Minerva!

Author's Response: I think 55 chapters is enough for any story, LOL! Thanks so much for reading and reviewing; I'm so glad you enjoyed it. I'm working posting a few more AD/MM stories (need to clean up some html formatting, etc), and I've got a Minerva-Alastor that I'm hoping will make it through moderation. Best, Squibstress

Death of an Actor by Kerichi

Rated: 3rd-5th Years •
Summary: A tribute to Alan Rickman through a poem about Severus Snape.
Reviewer: Nagini Riddle Signed
Date: 01/16/16 Title: Chapter 1: The Actor, the Character

This is perfect! You should definitely put this in the Great Hall thread: Tribute to Alan Rickman.
I actually love how this is both about Alan Rickman and Severus Snape at the same time. If you read it thinking about Snape, it fits perfectly, since he was an actor of sorts and I am sure he was applauded on both sides of the veil. And then it just fits Alan Rickman so well.
I love it! I am thinking about doing a poem myself, and you quite literally already wrote the idea I had in mind! :) Hahaha, but your poem is wonderful.

Author's Response: Aw, thank you, our great minds think alike, heh. Thank you for liking that it's about each of them. Snape used Occlumency to make people see what he wanted them to see, while Rickman had to do it the Muggle way, but they were both actors. Please do write a poem! I'd love to read it.
