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!
Summary: The remarkable story behind Griselda Marchbanks' enigmatic reference to all those things Albus Dumbledore could do with a wand.
So funny and great! :) I think, though, that they would have made him do harder spells than these- but since we don't know what happens at the N.E.W.T.s, it totally works!
Great dare! You should definitely keep letting people dare you to do these things!
Author's Response: Hi there! Thanks so much for the review! I'm glad you liked the story. You made a good point about the spells being a bit on the easy side--but then you answered the point as well, because we just don't know much about 7th year and the spells they might have learned, so I had to do the best I could, and make sure Albus did a bit more than asked to make up for it. I'm glad it worked enough to make the rest of it worth it. And it wasn't quite a dare, more of a throw-away comment that I couldn't resist. LOL! I don't know if I should follow up on them if they all turn out like this, though. Thanks again for the lovely review! ~Gina :)
Summary: All Petunia ever wanted (even if she never admitted it to anyone, including herself), was just to see. Is that really too much to ask?
Again, I just loved this poem! It is so wonderful! I cannot fault it!
Author's Response: Yay! *Bows down low* My deepest gratitude, my dear.
Summary: A short poem about the first task.
Nice! I love the first two stanzas because of how you describe the dragon's appearance! I got a little scared of the Hungarian... :)
Author's Response: Thank you! I am very glad you liked it. I kind of struggled with those stanzas, haha. :)
Summary: Ron and Hermione have some news.
Typical Hermione! :) I loved how you characterized both George and Hermione! Ron seemed really mature! Although, I did like how he opened the door the office with his wand! I really enjoyed it!
Author's Response: Thanks.
In my opinion Ron matured very rapidly in DH. His abandoning his friends was the catalyst. Malfoy Manor confirmed his feelings for Hermione, and the battle forced him to grow up. But he's still not afraid of using magic to shortcut things.-N-
Summary: Andromeda reflects on her choices, not long after the birth of her daughter.
There's a minimum!!???
Anyways, beautiful poetry. I love the sounds this produced, and clocks can be fun to listen to- and sometimes annoy me. :) But this was great!
Author's Response: Yes, 100 words minimum. Bleh. And thanks. Glad you enjoyed.
Summary: There are many types of secrets. Some you keep for others, some you keep for yourself, and others you keep to avoid them.
When it came to feelings, I, Lily, was the greatest keeper of secrets.
Augh! :) Remind me who Louis is again... Who are his parents?
What an interesting view! I think I liked it. Although, I'll admit, I was a little squeamish. However, I can tell that you are a very strong writer! Great job. :D
Author's Response: Wow, thank you! I'm really glad you took the time to read this, even if it made you uncomfortable. And Louis is the son of Bill and Fleur. Maple
Summary: Immortality comes with a quiet price.Written for Random Song Title Challenge at Poetry Anyone (?). This poem shares the title of the Helios song, and only the title.
Wow! What an ingenious idea!
In your first stanza on the last line, I have a problem with those last two words. I think the flow and rhythm would work better if it read "quite not".
With the second stanza, I feel similar for the last line. Maybe it should read "the hours after" or "hours after hours." it's just so it stays in line with the rhythm of the rest of the poem.
I loved it though! This will definitely allow the flobberworm to gain some fame!
Summary: For the Death Eaters.Written for Random Song Title Challenge at Poetry Anyone (?). This poem shares the title of The Hush Sound song, and only the title.
I'm a Death Eater! Okay not really. :D
I of course loved it. I noticed, though, that the first two stanzas sort of rhyme, and the last two don't. What I mean is, in the first stanza, "masks" and "past" share the same vowel sound, and therefore give a sense of rhythm and rhyme. The same happens with the second stanza with "pink" and "eat." Just something I noticed. :)
I really enjoyed the spider imagery. It reminded me of the story, The Spider and the Fly, in which the spider does all he can to flatter the lady fly, and she finally gives in and he ties her up for a later meal.
Chills are running down my spine...
Summary: On May 4th, 2012, Petunia Dursley found herself hanging.This is a prose-poem written for the Who Arted? challenge at Poetry Anyone (?). It is based on a sketch done by welshdevondragon/Alex.
I loved this in PA even though I don't think I left a review.... But it is gorgeous prose! And I feel so bad for petunia. I'm happy to be seeing so many petunia stories now! Jut because it means that we realize Muggles are a part of this world, too! :)
Summary: What is Gellert Grindelwald. A young man with so many sides.
This poem was written for The Sharp Challenge in Poetry, Anyone? Thank you Julia, for running such fab challenges and being an inspiration.
Disclaimer: JKR? Me? Noooooooooo.
Yay! A definition poem of some sort. I loved the crab apple tree part. An the lightning part. and the bag of bones part. Okay, all the parts. :)
Author's Response: Thank you very much. I liked the definition poems , they were fun. ~Carole~
Summary: Lily Evans is different things to different people.
This poem was originally written for The Sharp Challenge in PA. Thank you Julia, for bringing such inspiration.
Disclaimer: Tis not I who be JK Rowling.
It was happy... And then very sad. I love these definition poems so much! And you have a great knack for them. :) Beautiful job.
Author's Response: Definition poems are interesting (and fun) to write. You should give it a go. Thanks again for this review and all the others. ~Carole~
Summary: A love song for Lily from an unusually poetic James Potter.
This poem has been written for the Queen of James/Lily romance, Gina (gmariam) for her birthday.
Disclaimer: JKR, Moi? No, no, a thousand times, no.
Wow, he is suddenly very romantic. *chuckles* But it was exquisite. I especially liked how he described her hair as burnished copper! Beautiful! :)
Author's Response: I think he could be romantic when not with his friends. Although I'm not sure he's saying this as much as thinking it. Thank you. ~Carole~
Summary: With a bit of help from their dad, Rose and Hugo Weasley prepare a short play for their mum's birthday.
This is Gmariam of Ravenclaw submitting for the Character Clinic Triatholon-Minor Characters.
Happy birthday again! :)
This was so sweet. I love to perform, too, and I just adored the play those two put on! I hope my future children can be like this! But no matter what, I will love them.
Great story! :D
Summary: Late at night, Lily reflects on how lucky she really is.
Geez, you certainly love Lily don't you?
This was so sweet! How did Harry take the news that his daughter was marrying Scorpius????? :)
Very nice! I loved it. :D
Author's Response: Ahaha, SPEW007 makes us write about one character only :) As for Harry, I don't really think he cared. In my head canon, Harry no longer hates Draco. They aren't friends, but he doesn't hate him. Thanks for the reviewwww! Maple
Helena Ravenclaw has seen many things as a ghost and as a girl.This poem placed third in the Negotioting with the Dead challenge over at Poetry Anyone, for which it was originally written.
A big thank you to Natalie/hestiajones for giving me feedback in PA and made this poem what it is now!
I enjoyed this on the PA, and it is still lovely now! :) I, too, wrote on Helena for this challenge, but I admit yours had a depth that was beautiful!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review! I saw your pome, actually, and I thought it was really good. As for the depth, well, originally it was a far more cumbersome poem, but Natalie encouraged me to shorten it to what it is today. :)
Summary: A storm bears down on Hogwarts as the Gryffindor-Hufflepuff match draws near.
Nice imagery!!!!! I love your poetry a lot! Great job. :)
Author's Response: Thanks. :)
Summary: Hannah Abbott and her mother have never gotten along. But that is about to change.
This is Peppermint Toads of Gryffindor writing for Madame Pomfrey's Character Triathalon.
Before I say how emotional this made me feel, first, I just want to point out this line-"There were so markings on the body," McGonagall replied. "So" should be "no." Just a quick edit!
Anyways, the ending made me so depressed! This was very powerful. I am so impressed by the maturity of your writing! I especially loved the anaphoric lines at the end of each section. It was so beautiful! I could really feel the numbness and then the regret that Hannah had. If this doesn't win, it has, at least, won in my heart. :)
Author's Response: Haha, sorry about the typo. I shall fix it immediately! Thanks for the lovely review, I'll be sure to return the favor ASAP <3
Summary: Ginny waits
Yay!!!!!! Goodness, I love the refrain in this poem! It is so beautiful! I especially loved how you broke up the lines and stanzas, because it really stabbed at my heart with each despairing adjective! Really wonderful! My only critique is that you used punctuation wonderfully in the poem, but I feel perhaps that maybe the first stanza could have used some, or maybe been broken up into two stanzas of two lines each. I only say that because there are pretty much two ideas there, and yet they seem to run together in an odd way. It could be that I am reading it wrong. I still loved the poem!!!!!! :) I think the best part was the very end, when You threw in dialogue- I thought that was a great way to make it stand out from her thoughts and emphasize that hope hadn't actually left Ginny! Great job. I hope to read more soon.
Author's Response: Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've just submitted another poem!!! ~Nidhi
Summary: Life and love go hand in hand, and two people know that more than anybody else in the world.
Wow! You have a great writing style. You should definitely think of joining Poetry Anyone? in the beta forums! You would be a great addition! :) that is, if you haven't already joined. :)
Anyways, I really loved the last line- it was amazing! Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: I'm thinking about joining PA? but my poetry output is SO SLOW, lol. But, anyways thank you for the kind words!
Summary: A short poem from George to his Twin.
This is a very nice poem, especially for a first one. :) Keep it up!
Author's Response: Thank you I'm planning on writing some more now :) EL
