Summary: Lily Evans hates James Potter; he's reckless, careless, hopeless. James Potter loves Lily Evans; she's feisty, forward, firm. Over their years at Hogwarts, both of them change, and their love eventually becomes the stuff of legend. This is the story of how that love started and how it touched the lives of everyone they knew.
I liked the descriptions when you started off but somewhere on the train your details started rushing away in hast for the next event. It was fantastic, but please take your time. Love is all the more wonderful when you have to wait for it.
Author's Response: Thank you for the critique. I felt like it was descriptive overload at the start of the chapter, but I'll keep in mind what you said as I work on the rest of the story. ~ Megan
Summary: Ron runs away, and runs into a spot of bother.
This is Northumbrian of Ravenclaw writing for Round One of the 2012 Character Triathlon.
Fine internal monologe, I think mabey Ron's conversation with himself might have taken more time but I would say your judgement is no doubt better than mine. Did picture a more pathetic and public tussle with the snatchers than this but it works with how Ron often insults harshly at the drop of a hat. Have you thought of continuing his expedition with out Harry and Hermione?
Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
Ron’s conversation was, initially, a bit longer but I cut it because I thought that the longer version was a rambling whinge, and this is more punchy. I could be wrong. I’ve thought about writing about his time at shell cottage, too. If I do, it won’t be for some time as I have way too many chaptered stories on the go. I must finish something.-N-
Summary: Ron and Hermione have some news.
Why not write a full story? My curiosity for this story is brimming to the edge of a category 5 brainstorm.
Author's Response: Why not? Simply because I have so many unfinished stories, and the idea of writing a series of pregnancy-related one-shots seemed to me to be an easier option. I'm wrong, aren't I? -N-
I would say so but then again I am a hopeless romantic begging for the sweet indulgence of a story written from love at first sight to tragically heartwarming sacrifices and everything in between.
It is your call though. ;)
Author's Response: My plan (such as it is) is to get something finished (and at the moment, that something is Hunters and Prey) before I start another novel-length story. Of fcourse, by calling this a "series of one-shots" I can keep writing these and not break that rule *sigh*. I know what I want to be next in this series, and it will need research. -N-
Luna attends the International Symposium on Fantastic Beasts in Sweden. She is looking for proof of the existence of the Crumple-Horned Snorkack. What she finds is something else entirely.
This is Northumbrian of Ravenclaw writing for Round Two (Travel Prompt) of the 2012 Madam Pomfrey’s One-Shot Character Triathlon.
As every thing else seems to be in perfect creation, I am curious as to why you spelled cafe with a k, is it the Swedish way? I have no idea as I have yet to every leave my country.
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Kafé is the Swedish spelling. I arrived back from Skåne County. Great place, friendly people, and generally wonderful. But: 68 SEK (£6.80) for a beer (and 0.5l, not even a pint)! It isn't cheap. :-D -N-
