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: Hermione watches Ron as they stand before the preacher, and thinks.
What a fun poem! I just love poetry of any kind (if you happen to look at my written stories and the reviews I've written, I think you would see that) and I really enjoyed this sweet poem! That last stanza just made me laugh! It captured Hermione perfectly. :)
Summary: There's a time when friends bid their fairwells and another when they must re-unite to keep the world in balance.
What, no snake???? :) beautiful! I really enjoyed the messaging of uniting for a common cause! :)
Author's Response: Nagini Riddle, WOOHOO! MY FIRST EVER REVIEW!!!(: I am so you glad that you enjoyed reading my poem! And yeah, there is no snake unfortunately. He was the one that was shunned away from the other three because his views were different. But in the end, "three will become one and one will become all." In my line of sight, all four Houses will re-unite and the balance will be stronger than ever. I am so glad that you enjoyed my poem! Thank you so much for being my first review ever and hopefully there are much more to come! I will be posting many more of my works and maybe the one from booksie that you thought sounded much like Dumbledore's ideas. Thanks again, Nagini Riddle for reading and reviewing this poem, ~crbluvsravenclaw (Cris)!!!(:
Summary: It's the day every Weasley has been dreading since the battle and now it's George's turn to speak. However, before he can begin, he is rudely interrupted by a latecomer.
Joint winner of Best Post-Hogwarts One-Shot at the 2012 Quicksilver Quill Awards
Wow! This was great! I loved how Fred and George were still able to joke around! What a great way to send Fred off... It's too bad he had to die... *silently cries*
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing :) Like a little thing like death could stop them! I know... *dabs eyes* Anyway, I'm glad you enjoyed it!
Summary: AU. Professor Snape finds himself in a bit of a predicament when someone from his school days shows up to teach at Hogwarts. Serena Wolfsbane, an accomplished Auror, takes up her new teaching position and discovers that there is definitely more to Snape than meets the eye. Follows basic plot of last 4 Harry Potter books.
teehee! i want to see where this goes!
since it was short, i really dont have much to really say as to how ot improve it. when your next chapter comes out, i will have a better evaluation! keep it up!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! The next chapter is just waiting to be validated, so hopefully it'll be up soon. =]
The end of the world comes not from the hand of Lord Voldemort, but an incurable disease. When Britain falls, those that are left must keep on running.
And never stop.
Winner of the 2012 Quicksilver Quill Award for Best Alternate Universe!
Wow! I don't know what to say! You built it up so much- and then I had to laugh at the end! It all started from that small bite from the Snorcack, or whatever that stupid creature was. Ha! See, Xeno, they can certainly wipe the world of something!
This story felt very "I am Legend"ish
Author's Response: Thanks :) Glad you enjoyed it!
Summary: As Severus Snape lies dying, he stares into the eyes of the woman he's loved all his life.
I really enjoyed reading this in PA and now I still love it here! It's not too short! :) how did you get it updated so fast? My poem has been in the queue for nine days...
I especially enjoyed the last line- its comforting to know that he got to see her again after he died.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review and the crit in PA. I also love to think that Severus gets to see Lily again. Even after she's gone, he dedicates his entire life to her.
Summary: Ginny thinks of Harry and wonders if he will ever return from his mysterious mission.
Wow! I love the rhythm it had! I especially enjoyed how you wrote mem'ries!!!!!! Way to take out a syllable! That, right there, says poet to me!
Author's Response: Thanks for taking the time to review, Nagini. Ellision (abbreviating a word like that) is very useful for making words fit into the meter, but I'm not sure that ellision a poet makes :P
Summary: On 31 July 2026, Harry's birthday celebrations are a bit different than normal.
This is AidaLuthien writing for Round 2 of the Character Clinic Triathlon.
Augh! i did not see this coming, until Ginny was holding flowers!
great job, though! it was great to find out what the families were doing after the war, and able to move on with their lives. Out of curiosity, how did Harry die?
Summary: The suffering of an Unforgivable Curse.
Wow! Loved this poem! Am I correct in thinking that this is about the Longbottoms?
I especially liked how you placed the lines, staggering the stanzas. It really helps it move along in a jagged way, kind of like the cruciatus curse does. And the rhyme seemed effortless and beautiful! Wow! Not cheesy or silly, but absolutely stunning! *jaw drops to the floor in amazement* GREAT JOB!!!!!
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I'm glad you liked it, I really appreciate the review. And yes, you are correct. I didn't set out to write about them, but as I was writing that's where it went. Thanks again! ~Gina :)
Summary: Sirius's last thoughts as he falls through the veil.
Oh, GinnyPotter! I love your wit! :)
This poem is still beautiful, and I would have given it an honorable mention for the challenge! Cheers!
Author's Response: Thank you thank you thank you soooo much for being my first review! This was just a quick thing I thought of for the challenge. Had to do the repitition for this though. Thanks again!!!!~Nidhi
Summary: October 3rd. They still haven't told him; it's likely never will. This is the most and least selfish act they have committed, and in spite of it all they just can't let go. One-shot, Remus/Lily.
i am laughing even though this is sad!!!!!! goodness, everyone loved Lily! she is such a vixen! :)
nice story, though! out of curiosity, what would lily have said if Remus had asked her just then?
these types of stories only make me dislike James Potter more... Lily deserved better! *chuckles*
Author's Response: Now, I wouldn't say that! I've always been fond of James, and I like to think that while both he and Lily did some unsavory things, they were both good people with a nice, albeit short, relationship. I'm glad you enjoyed it, though. ;P As for your question, I think Lily was just very confused and emotional and maybe not being entirely honest with herself or, for that matter, Remus. I can't imagine she honestly would have said yes, and I don't think Remus could've let either of them go through with it anyway. As Rowling said, Remus really liked to be liked, and he would never be able to take Lily from James due in part to that need. And in her heart of hearts, Lily really did love and want to be with James.
Summary: Pansy rolled over, and her eyes found a white wall staring back at her. Everything here was white: sanitized, blinding, annoyingly bright white. Even the loose cotton she had been forced to wear was white. But there was a reason Pansy was there. She was crazy. Pansy knew she was, but couldn’t bring herself to care.
Yes, life wasn't turning out the way Pansy planned, but it was manageable. Until he came along ...
This is iMusic17 from Slytherin writing for Round II of the CC Triathalon (2012).
wow! i am all for odd pairings, and i really enjoyed this! what a dark/angsty story! you are really good at this. :)
maybe you could try another strange pairing?
Author's Response: I'm glad you like odd pairings. I blame Jess (ToBeOrNotToTypeThisAllOut) for Ron/Pansy. And, yeah, D/A is kind of my thing. I'll try another odd pairing, soon; I promise. I'm glad you like it, and thanks for the review!
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.
Nominated for Best Poem in the 2013 Quicksilver Quill Awards
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...
