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: There are stories everywhere. Some reveal themselves to their characters, but most do not.
One story goes like this: Once upon a time, there were two children, a boy and a girl, who were best friends. The boy had grown up in the cold, and he fell in love with the girl’s bright warmth; he cared more about her than anything in the world. Yet fate rejected them, and one day, without meaning to, the boy shattered their friendship forever. He tried to apologize, but it was too late. He had been swallowed back into bitter iciness, while the girl remained in the light of the sun.
Yet the girl does not know all this. She only knows of the turning point in the story, the hurt the boy has caused her, the reason she would not forgive him.
These are Lily’s words to Severus at the turning point in their story.
(It is also, for no apparent reason, a parody of Shakespeare sonnet.)
You llama, you! :) What a fun way to use Shakespeare! Teehee! I really enjoyed it!
I wonder what you think of my own depressing fanfiction poetry.....
To quote my favorite movie: "Yay! I'm a llama again!" (The Emperor's New Groove)
Author's Response: Oh, I only know about llamas from the llama song. (Don't look it up. You'll hate me forever.) My third cousins twice removed (or something) own an alpaca farm, though. Your poetry is nice. I mean, yeah, I'm not always partial to depressing stuff, but I just like how they're written--you use vivid language. I remember one of yours that I really liked, about a person in a portrait... I think I do too much poetry that is very candid/write-like-you-talk, which is why I'm trying to branch out.
Summary: How Ginny feels as she kisses Harry before Bill and Fleur's wedding.
Ah, short and so very Ginny. :) You really captured that Gryffindor within her. I would love to read the original! I hope to see more poetry from you.... *secretly is happy to be reading poetry.*
Summary: When Alice could still remember her mother, she always thought of flowers.
Amazing job, minna. :) I am in awe of its beauty, and you have left me speechless.
Summary: Salazar watches his home burn. A prose poem.
I love prose poetry! You did a magnificent job, minna. ;)
Summary: What promises could a cursed Ring possibly offer that could convince Dumbledore to put it on his finger, even knowing the consequences?
I really enjoyed the asides you used. They add so much dimension to the piece!
Great subject, by the way. Trying to capture the struggle of Dumbledore's when he finds the resurrection stone. :) I liked how the poem didn't read overly fast, like he was greatly contemplating his decision.
I feel, though, that it could have had a bit more of a rushed feeling to it only to add the complex dimensionality of a rash decision. But honestly, it does well the way it is. The last line really says it all and spells out that regret. :)
I can't wait to read more of your work (again). :)
Summary: Does Mrs. Granger remember Hermione in any way? Is there a subconscious memory in the back of her mind?
I think you have a very good start for your first poem. :) I like the simplicity of it that allows the emotion to really shine.
I only wish that last stanza was a little longer and more complete. Perhaps with a message to tie it all in. Perhaps like, "Til then I'll keep waiting,/Endlessly waiting for what I seek."
Other than that, very nice. I look forward to more poetry from you.
Author's Response: Thanks Nagini. I did add a few lines now. I agree, it did need a little more at the end. -Georgia
Summary: Voldemort laments his final battle from beyond the grave …
Hahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!! That is all I can say right now. :) :) :)
Summary: Hermione Granger is many things, and she is not just a sweet little girl.
Ah, Hermione! :) I really liked this poem! The refrains were beautiful, and I found that this described Hermione quite well. Nice job!
Summary: Hermione reflects during Ron's absence.
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!
